Generations Were Raised To Believe Processed Fruit Juice Was Health Food When It's Actually Junk Food
June 30, 2014 | Nutrition | N.Longo
There was a time when fruit juices were marketed as the ultimate health drink. A glass of sunshine packed with vitamins and energy. However, one of the great scams of the industrial food cartel is the so-called "fresh" juices sold in supermarkets. Many of these "fresh" juices can be stored for a year, so how fresh are they?

7 Reasons To Stop Eating Bread
June 27, 2014 | Nutrition | N.Longo
Bread is almost sacred in many cultures and society, but processed breads today are not what they were forty years ago. More than 70 percent of people who eliminate bread cold turkey experience an immediate weight loss within the first two weeks. It is wrongly placed at the bottom of our food pyramid, which is taught to children in schools from a very young age. Some of these children grow up to be registered dieticians and promote the same nonsense. Processed grains in breads are unnecessary and even harmful to most metabolic types. Here's why.

How To Do A Liver Detox and Blood Cleanse
June 25, 2014 | Healing | K.Foster
By cleansing the liver, we're talking about inducing the liver to purge all of the fats, old cholesterol deposits, gallstones, poisons, drug residues, and toxic waste stored therein. Probably nothing else you do (including even the colon detox) will make a greater difference in your overall health. The liver is so important to our well-being that many healers maintain that most diseases cannot develop in the body (that, in fact, no form of cell degeneration can occur) if the liver is functioning in an efficient, healthy manner. Conversely, an unhealthy liver is very likely at the root of most serious health problems.

Cannabis Oil Cures 8 Month Old Infant of Cancer, Dissolving Large Inoperable Tumor In 8 Months
June 24, 2014 | Healing | M.Torres
According to Dr. William Courtney, the western medical mind has a very hard if not impossible time trying to understand the diverse actions of Cannabidiol. He explains how his youngest patient who is 8 months old, had a very massive centrally located inoperable brain tumor. The child's father pushed for non-traditional treatment utilizing cannabis and put cannabinoid oil on the baby's pacifier twice per day, gradually increasing the dose. Within two months there was a dramatic reduction. Dr. Courtney pointed out that the success of the cannabis approach means that "this child...is not going to have the long-term side effects that would come from a very high dose of chemotherapy or radiation.
How Does Paid Parental Leave Differ Around The World? You Might Be Surprised
June 24, 2014 | Lifestyle | A.Pestana
When it comes to the world's maternity leaves report card, not all countries are passing with flying colours. In a report by the International Labour Organization (ILO), the majority of the United States (excluding two states) received a failing grade in providing women and new mothers support entering motherhood, with most states providing no paid maternity leave. That's a great contrast from countries such as Czech Republic and Slovakia where the standard is 3 years paid support after a child's birth.

Shocking Agricultural Crisis Looms For One of The World's Largest Coconut Producers Thanks To The Chemical Industry
June 23, 2014 | GovernmentAbuse | M.Torres
Coconut oil is one of the healthiest oils in the world, and you may have noticed the price creeping up in the last few years. One of the reasons is due to the looming agricultural crisis in the Philippines, one of the world's largest coconut producers. The coconut industry, which supports millions of Filipinos is slowly dying because of a massive insect infestation that has to date claimed 2 million trees. The irony is, the infestation is easy to arrest using inexpensive organic means, but the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) has sold out to the chemical industry which may kill the entire coconut economy that the Philippines and much of the world depends on.

June 22, 2014 | Nutrition | J.Ivan
They said, "a calorie is a calorie," but not all calories are equal. They're not equal because they vary in effects in your weight and health.

What is important is the source of the calories and not on counting them.

The Difference of Professional Therapeutic Medicine
June 20, 2014 | NaturalLiving | E.Dahl
When you hear "professional therapeutic medicine," what does it mean to you?

One would assume so, but a problem may also lie within those same assumptions.
Thought-Provoking Quantum Experiments Which Show That Reality Is Only An Illusion
June 19, 2014 | Consciousness | J.Richardson
No one in the world can fathom what quantum mechanics is, this is perhaps the most important thing you need to know about it. Granted, many physicists have learned to use its laws and even predict phenomena based on quantum calculations. But it is still unclear why the observer of an experiment determines the behavior of the system and causes it to favor one state over another. Here are some examples of experiments with outcomes which will inevitably be influenced by the observer, which show how quantum mechanics deals with the intervention of conscious thought in material reality.

Why Humanity Must 'Rewild' To Extricate Ourselves From Our Ecocidal Ways
June 15, 2014 | NaturalLiving | M.Bekoff
Most people find it difficult to live a rich and meaningful life that involves being out in nature -- and appreciating the magnificence of our one and only planet -- because they are constantly in the process of being "unwilded." People are pulled away from nature and other animals because they are simply too busy trying to survive, or too busy trying to make ends meet. And unwilding begins early in life -- too many youngsters aren't allowed to "go out and get dirty" or just have fun doing nothing but enjoying themselves outside.

Organic Trade Groups Finding Pesticides On Over 45 Percent of Organic Produce - 77 Percent of Organic Grapes Test Positive
June 12, 2014 | Toxins | A.McCarthy
The most common recommendation made by health experts in the area of produce selection is to choose "organic" varieties for maximum health benefits. We trust organic label certifications because they are supposed to comply with organic standards set by national governments and international organizations. Synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers are not allowed in organic practices, but that's not always the case. Research by a Food Inspection Agency in Canada has found that nearly half the organic fresh fruits and vegetables tested in the past two years contained pesticide residue, violating maximum allowable limits for the presence of pesticides, the data shows.

The Secrets of Food Marketing and How You're Being Fooled By Advertising
June 6, 2014 | GovernmentAbuse | A.McCarthy
There are large divisions within every population in the world where people have absolutely no idea where their food comes from. They believe cows, pigs and chickens run around in green pastures, without any comprehension of what they're fed, how they're treated and most of all, completely unaware of the confined quarters they live in for the majority of their lives. This is the reality of factory farming. The speaker in this video is portraying herself as a so-called expert revealing food marketing's secret weapon and how they fool the public through deceptive strategies to encourage the false belief that meat comes from humanely treated animals. The audience's expression says it all.

Boiled Coca-Cola Demonstration Proves The Quantity of Sugar Contained In The Soft Drink
June 5, 2014 | Toxins | A.McCarthy
If you've made fudge or candy, you're likely familiar with the different cooking stages involved in achieving the right consistency to create these sweets. Any sugar that is heated enough will eventually thicken at higher temperatures. This Coca-Cola boiling demonstration clearly shows that the soft drink is primarily composed of sugar. It's a fact most people know, but to have it demonstrated in this fashion and to witness the coagulated final product puts perspective on exactly what you're drinking. It's a beverage that could theoretically be classified as a poison without any nutritional value and with no ability to hydrate. So the real question is...why do people still drink it?
