Fake News Alert: Doctors Mag Claims Air Pollution Deaths Due To Climate Change

s08_climate_change

Lancet, the journal of British medical professionals has published a completely innacurate editorial which falsely claims seven million deaths linked to air pollution were caused by “climate change.”

“The effects of climate change are inextricably entwined with health,” the May 12 editorial begins, “ranging from the WHO estimate of 7 million deaths from breathing polluted air indoors and outdoors.” The editorial then goes on to list a series of other alleged harmful effects of climate change, none of which are backed by hard evidence.

The main statement is patently false, and the Lancet editors must surely know that.

The World Health Organization (WHO) report to which the editorial refers makes no mention of climate change and speaks only of the adverse health effects of breathing polluted air, which is a different thing altogether.

According to the WHO report, “around 7 million people die every year from exposure to fine particles in polluted air that penetrate deep into the lungs and cardiovascular system, causing diseases including stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases and respiratory infections, including pneumonia.”

All of these harmful substances which have potentially fatal consequences are causes by “exposure to fine particles in polluted air” and not by global warming.

In its infographic on the causes of air pollution, the WHO lists six sources of dangerous fine particulate matter, none of which is related to climate change, a phenomenon due entirely to the release of carbon dioxide from human activity according to the environmentalist lobby. The six sources of air pollution are industry and energy supply, dust, agricultural practices, transport, waste management, and household energy.

Among the six solutions proposed by WHO for combatting air pollution, not one of them touches on carbon dioxide emissions, for the simple reason that CO2 is not a pollutant and is not harmful to human health. Unlike pollutants, carbon dioxide is odorless, colorless, and most importantly, non-toxic. In fact the trace gas is essential to life, being the fuel used by the photosynthesis process to grown plant matter.

The report notes that deaths linked to air pollution occur mainly in third-world countries where a majority of the population “do not have access to clean cooking fuels and technologies in their homes.” The article in Lancet ignores that essential point and shamelessly links lethal air pollution to global warming, without bothering to attempt to establish a real connection between the two.

It then goes on to speak of how the horrible effects of air pollution can be averted by implementing measures to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from industrial, domestic and agricultural activity, which, again, is complete bollocks.

The overtly political editorial seeks to persuade a naïve public to enact policy to reduce CO2 emissions by making them think that this will curb deadly air pollution, which it will not. It will however appease the medical professions’ paymasters in politics and the Big Pharma corporations.

New Cultural ‘Safety Guidelines’ To Protect ‘Feelings’ Of Abos In Australian Hospitals

<h3>by Arthur Foxake<h3>
<!– http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/health/australian-nursing-and-midwifery-code-of-conduct-slammed-over-white-privilege/news-story/4d1d71f45af35b8ffdd25fd40804d5a3 –>

Australian nurses: It's no longer enough to treat all patients equally, now nurses must apologise for being white.
Nurses and midwives are required to “acknowledge white privilege” as part of a new code of conduct. Source: istock

<p>A Joint statement from the Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association, Public Health Association of Australia, Consumers Health Forum of Australia and National Rural Health Alliance proves beyond resonable doubt that even Okkers are being castrated by political correctness.</p>

<p>The opening section of the statement reads:<br>
div class=”quote”>
“If we want Australia’s First Peoples to have the best possible healthcare, then all healthcare providers and professions have to seriously embrace the concept of cultural safety.</p>

<p>In saying this we strongly support the joint statement on cultural safety in healthcare recently released by the nation’s five leading national nursing and midwifery bodies.</p>

<p>Cultural safety in this context involves health professionals examining their own beliefs, behaviours and practices, as well as issues such as institutional racism, in ensuring that their services are perceived as safe—by the patient rather than the provider.”</p></div>

<p>‘For much too long Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have found health services unwelcoming, and even traumatic to the point where they will discharge themselves from hospital against medical advice’, AHHA’s Strategic Program Director, Dr Chris Bourke said.</p>

<p>Nurses and midwives around the country must now adhere to a new code of conduct with a section specifically dedicated to “culture” and which details white Australians’ inherent privilege “in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders”.</p>

<p>What the cupid stunts who run Australia’s health service seem to be forgetting is they are talking about people who run around the outback bollock naked and live on a diets that includes grubs and worms. Of course hospitals seem unwelcoming to they, they are not accustomed to people who wear clothes, have never slept in a bad and tend to eat each other for lunch.</p>

<p>It is gratifying to learn that Aussie nurses are resisting changes that requires them to “acknowledge white privilege” before treating patients from aboriginal backgrounds. Why aren’t the abos being asked to apologise for being ignorant Wombat felchers?</p>

<p>The new code, which came into effect in March, has been labelled “politically correct idiocy”, “cultural madness” and “unacceptable authoritarianism”. A peak body representing nurses in Queensland is even calling for the chairman of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia to be sacked over it.</p>

<p>“This is eye-watering stuff,” Graeme Haycroft from the Nurses Professional Association of Queensland told Sky News host Peta Credlin. “We’re calling for the resignation of the chairman of the board (Associate Professor Lynette Cusack) because she’s put her name to it and it’s unacceptable.”</p>

<p>Credlin called it “almost too hard to believe”. “Before (a midwife) delivers a baby to an indigenous woman she’s supposed to put her hands up and say: ‘I need to talk to you about my white privilege’, not about my infection control, my qualifications or my training as a midwife?” she asked Mr Haycroft.</p>

<p>He said that was correct, but there’s no requirement to “announce” anything. The nurses must simply abide by the new code which state clearly that “cultural safety is as important to quality care as clinical safety”.</p>

<p>“Cultural safety … requires nurses and midwives to undertake an ongoing process of self-reflection and cultural self-awareness, and an acknowledgment of how a nurse’s/midwife’s personal culture impacts on care,” the code reads.</p>

<p>We really do have to find a way to teach these university brainwashed morons that in the great scheme of things and individual’s feelings are no more significant than a gnat’s fart in a hurricane. How ca medical staff respect the cultural safety of people who are more accustomed to going behind the nearest bush for a shit that using a toilet. There can be no doubt that Australian nurses are being victimised by racists here, and if the politically correct left were not such hypoocrites (because they don’t really give a flying fuck about Abos, all they are interested in is virtue signalling, <b>being seen to care</b>.</p>

The State To Be Public Guardian Over Organ Rights

Government to introduce Organ Donation opt out scheme to be regulated by The Office of the Public Guardian

‘The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) is an independent statutory office established to protect the rights, interests and wellbeing of adults with impaired decision-making capacity, and children and young people in the child protection system.’
Hmmmm…. sounds like state intervention to me.
Your organs are being targeted. When you are lying on your deathbed, doctors will gather around you like vultures, ready to pounce the moment you expire and strip your cadaver of any bits that might still be useful. We should have seen this coming when medical professionals started talking about “harvesting organs” from the newly dead. I notice they have dropped that now, the PR people must have had a word.

While many nations in the EU already have laws which decree tht the government owns your dead body and has the right to “harvest organs” from it for transplant surgery, in Britain, where we value personal liberty more that statistics, organ donation has always been an opt in issue. If you are prepared to give organs you must carry a card stating your willingness (just in case you get run over by a bus or chance to meet a surgeon who needs a liver, kidney or set of lungs to avoid his monthly performance stats falling short.)

This week however, the Prime Minister has announced the intention to launch a public consultation on increasing rates of organ donation. The proposals will include a new opt-out system for organ donation for England. The consultation will be launched by the end of the year. This means you will have to carry a card saying “When I’m dead, you cannot burcher the corpse as if I’m some clapped out old car in a scrapyard.”

In 2016 to 2018 there were 1,169 deceased organ donors and 3,293 transplants in England. While this was the highest ever rate of organ donation, there are still more people waiting for transplants than there are organs available. It means some people die before a suitable organ becomes available. On the other hand about 550,000 people die per year. Some very big warehouses will be needed to keep all those dead bits in.

Mts May’s consultation will outline ways to increase rates of organ donation and propose a new approach where every person would be deemed to have given consent unless they choose to opt out. It will run for 12 weeks.

The Department of Health will seek views on:

how government can increase rates of organ donation, particularly from BAME communities
how the issue of consent should be managed within the NHS
what role technology could play in helping people to discuss their preferences with family
how opt-out could work in practice, what safeguards would be necessary, and how families could be supported

There is currently a severe shortage of suitable organs, with around 6,500 people currently on transplant waiting lists. Every day up to 3 people die while waiting for an organ to become available.

I have always found the idea of organ transplants disgusting, but being of a stoical turn of mind I have always believed we should accept our destiny. When I have discussed this people usually say, “You’d soon change your tune if you needed a heart transplant. I’m sure I wouldn’t, when I faced death twenty years ago although a transplant could not have saved me because I was having a brain haemorrhage, I asked my wife to be brave enough to let me go if I was going to be a basket case.

Death is something our ancestors lived with for several million years. We must learn to live with it again. To die is not a personal failure.

US firm makes millions selling dead body parts donated to science – report

frankenstein-tom-carlton1
Baron Frankenstein’s creation (Image source: www.johhnytruelove

An investigation by Reuters news agency has uncovered the shocking news than an American company has made huge profits from selling human organs and other body parts donated to science, for surgical transplant purposes, often without the knowledge of relatives. Under US law it is legal though many people question the ethics involved. It would not be the first time doctors’ enthusiasm for turning us into Frankenstein monsters has run into ethical problems. A few years ago a plan in the UK to replace failing human organs with healthy ones from pigs ended in disaster.

This latest scheme, launched in 2008 by Arizona based Science Care Inc. had the goal of to maximizing profits from the sale of human bodies donated to science. The company’s model for ensuring quality was based on the McDonald’s Corp business plan.

The company promised to provide customers, i.e. the transplan surgery teams of hospital groups linked to the USA’s private healthcare system, with the same cuts from cadavers no matter which Science Care branch handled the order. Company boss James Rogers cited production methods perfected by Ray Kroc, the visionary who turned a hamburger stand into a fast-food empire, according to a Science Care executive turned whistleblower.

“He used the McDonald’s analogy that no matter where you go, you get the same exact thing,” the executive, former quality assurance director John Cover, said in a sworn statement.

“It was all about quality,” Cover said when interviewed for the Reuters investigation. “When you get a Big Mac, it’s going to taste like a Big Mac, whether you’re in Louisiana or San Francisco.”

Instead of selling hamburgers and nuggets however, Science Care has made millions from human body parts according to Reuters report of its investigation, titled The Body Trade.

According to its own website Science Care, along with its subsidiaries, serves as “a link between individual donors and medical researchers and educators”. It also promises cremation at no cost to the donors or their families.

Body donation differs from organ donation which is closely linked to lifesaving procedures such as when a patient receives a heart or a kidney from the recently deceased. Organ donation is strictly controlled in the US, and selling organs and other body parts for transplant is against the law. Body donation provides material for medical research and training mainly in universities.

Science Care doesn’t break the law, as US regulations don’t prohibit doing whatever you want with corpses donated to science. Science Care is free to sell or lease the bodies and their parts, torsos, heads or limbs. Families of people whose bodies are donated will, however, be shocked to learn their loved ones bodies are not being used for valuable research, but “harvested” like a wrecked car for useful parts that will be sold for profit.

Science Care obtains many of its bodies from hospices caring for the poor and from needy families who cannot afford funerals. Body donation commonly saves families lots of money. A funeral including the cost of a coffin, the memorial service, and burial, may cost a family $7,000, while the price for a simple cremation, which is getting increasingly popular, comes in at $1,000.

Low Fat Diet Could Kill You Major Study Reveals

A major study has found that, contrary to ‘the established science,’low-fat diets could raise the risk of early death by almost twenty five percent. The study of 135,000 adults, organised by medical magazine The Lancet and presented at the European Society Of Cardiology congress found those who cut back on fats had far shorter lives than those enjoying plenty of butter, cheese and meats.

Researchers said the study was at odds with the advice health professionals and researchers working for pharmaceutical corporations have been offering for the past fifty years. From government health departments to our local doctor, the advice has always been “cut down on fats and avoid saturated fats because they will kill you. For many years now however, independent research has shown that fats, including saturated fats, are healthy and beneficial and processed carbohydrates are the real villain, with white sugar at the top of the list

Following the official advice has led to people who thought they were eating healthily to eat far too much stodgy food like bread, pasta and rice while missing out on vital nutrients, the study reported.

Participants who consumed the highest levels of carbohydrates, especially the refined sugars found in fizzy drinks and processed meals, faced a 28 per cent higher risk of early death (as always we add a caveat about statistics, always ask percentage of what? In this case, because figures vary widely from study to study if we assume at around 25% (1 in 4) adults under 70 will have some kind of cardiovascular problem, then those who have a 28% higher risk (again 1 in 4 for the sake of simplicity) have a 28% of 25% higher risk.)

The research, presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress, in Barcelona found those with low intake of saturated fat in fact had 13 per cent higher risk if early death compared to those eating plenty.

And consuming high levels of all fats while reducing refined carbohydrates cut mortality by up to 23 per cent.

The Canadian study tracked eating patterns and death rates across 18 countries.

Red Meat Causes Cancer Says World Health Org. Scientists. They Are Lying Of Course

Science was ever fascism’s whore; it has become a catchphrase of The Daily Stirrer over the years as week after week we report instances of scientists whoring themselves for research grants, produce results that serve the vested inerests of the organisations which provide their funding.

World Health Chiefs Say ‘Red Meat As Likely to Cause Cancer as Smoking’

Another way of looking at this article of course is to say that it is an admission by the WHO that cigarette smoking does not cause cancer, which while true is a dangerous thing to say because after non stop anti – tobacco propaganda for the past fifty years, such a statement would be open to being interpreted as meaning cigarette smoking does no harm.

Food health fascism: Salt, Sugar, Saturated Fat, Alcohol, Cheese, Fizzy Drinks, Chocloate, … if you enjoy it, it will kill you – maybe.

We are all familiar with those health scare stories that seem to pop up in mainstream media at least once a week claiming this that or the other will kill us. Few people spot the irony in that a few days earlier the same sensationalist rag will have carried a story under a similar screaming headline, claiming that scientists have found the stuff being demonised is in fact good for us …

The Bansturbator Diaries – Ban Everything And Tax It Too

Red Meat, fast food,, Pies, Pizzas, Cigarettes, Alcohol, and now sugar. The fun fascists are on the rampage everywere. Is there anything we can do to stop them? Yes. all we have to do is ignore them, especially the ones who try to claim some kind of authority by using the word ‘science’ far more than is necessary.

The science of saturated fat: A big fat surprise about nutrition?

After years of being told saturated fat is a killer and we should avoid it in favour of Big Food products that are the nearest modern chemistry can get to packaging arterial plaque, yet another scientific meta analysis shows the sat fat scare was based of fraudulent science and there is no evidence your steak is harming you.

Athlete’s Feet Cheese Eeeuch and double Eeeeuch
Cheese made from athlete’s foot bugs, is he having a laugh you might well ask. no I’m not.

Food Fascists Spread Fear and Panic About The Obesity PandemicIn another of our consciousness raising initiatives Greenteeth, the parent company of The Daily Stirrer, Little Nicky Machiavelli and Boggart Blog has created the Golden Orwell Awards. Today we award the Golden Orwells to Doctors, The NHS and the British Medical Association for their services to fascism in bending the truth about the health threats posed by obseity, alcohol and lack of exercise. We suggest the risks are not as great as will be posed by doctors withdrawing threwatment from those who do not obey.

Banning Words Like “Fatty” Is Not Being Caring And Nice, It’s Fascism By StealthThe more desperate the Thought Police get because they see the tide in society not just tuining against their stupid, politically correct agenda but becoming a torrent, the more loony their ideas get. The latest Loonytoons notion is to ban the use of terms like fatty and speccy-four-eyes and introduce body image and self esteem classes in schools. Pupils who offend can then join the 80,000 kids, some as young as four, who are on the racism register for crimes as serious as calling a black child velcro – head.

Diabetes Blogger Censored By Web – For Beating DiabetesLittle Nicky is not a health blogger so when blogs about health related topics come up it is usually in relation to the politicisation of health. The censorship of blogger Steve Cooksey shows political and business interests curtiailing free speech on the web but also reveals that search engine giant Google and other big players like Facebook have developed far to cosy a relationship with government and big business and that is not healthy for us as individuals..

Bansturbators Hidden Agenda – Abolish Meat To Make Way For Grey Goo.The bansturbators of Nanny State and the neo-Fascists of the New World Order are set on devivering us into the Brave New World promised a hured years ago by those who decided democracy would have to be superseded by a scientific dictatorship. Replacing natural meat in our diets with stuff made from grey goo grown in laboratories is the latest item on their agenda to go public.

Pasty Wars: Osborne’s War On Pies Is War On The NorthThere is a growing cultural gap in Britain. When hapless Cancellor George Osborne delivered his budget for 2012 the effete southern media tried to stip up a controversty about the so called ganny tax. But here in the nothern heartlands, the true England, what pissed us off was Osborne’s attempt to tax our hot pies.

Killer Red Meat Rport Was Faked By Health FascistsThe highly sensationalised research reported lkast week that identiufied red meat as a killer in our diet used manipulated data to distort the statistics, analysts have said. Good quality lean red meat in moderation (like anything else) does no harm. It is processed meat that causes problems. And who invented the processes that put the poison in our meat? Those conniving scientists of course.

Now Frying Pan Fascists Want To Steal Your Steak

Food Fascists, Meat Me HalfwayThe food fascists are on the march again, demonising healthy meat eating, promoting a diet high in starches, chemicals and all the foods evolution had not prepared our bodies to deal with. Forget the fake science, if you eat a happy meal it is the bun and fries that will kill you, not the burger.

Everything They Said Is Bad For You Is Good For YouJust when you thought it was safe to go back into the pleasuredome Nanny State’s Politically Correct Thought Police are now using CAll Me Dave’s Dave’s nudger try to nudge us towards being better citizens, eating healthy options, drinking less booze, avoiding dangerous sports like bowls and tiddleywinks, driving less miles and being less idle …

Latest Fear and Panic Strategy: They Tell Us We Are All Going To Starve

Have you noticed it has all gone a bit quiet on climate change? After all that screaming and shouting from politicians and scientists it turns out the science was never settled. So now they need to spread fear and panic about something else. Guess what … Food. We are all going to starve if we do not obey The New World Order. Who says? Statistics say and we all know statistics never lie don’t we? A must read for independent minded people.

And The Truth Is A Low Salt Diet Is A Health Risk?Conventional wisdom tells us too much salt in our diet is a health risk but many studies showing the opposite is true are not widely reported. Have health experts and medical scientists been taking lessonb of the climate change science crooks and liars?

Doctors Caught Lying Again – Long Term Paracetamol Use Can KillFor years doctors and health scientists have mocked fears that long term use of paracetamol can harm heath and even be fatal. A new study proved the punters were right and the doctors were lying again …

In The Wake Of The Crusade Against Carbon Dioxide, the Jihad Ahainst Junkl Food – the case that carbon dioxide was the sole cause of climatre chaos and justification for massive fuel taxes has collapsed but in its wake comes the jihad against junk food with … yes … proposals for a tax on unhealthy food.

Acohol Abuse Will Kill 250,000 A Year Unless Governmnt Acts say Control Freak Doctors
The Health fascists have been out in force this week. With reports on the dangers of alcohol, meat, salt and obesity published our resistance is being tested. The Daily Stirrer is on your side whether you like a drink, a bit of meat, a sprinking of salt on your food or you are a shade overweight. We are always happy to expose the dodgy scence and rigged evidence behind theses control freak fear and panic exercises.

Scientists And Politicians Attack The Food We Love, But Is It Science Or Just Control Freakery
A sustained campaign of misinformation by politicians, scientists, bureaucrats and the media have tried to brand fat and salt as the twin demons of the modern diet. Both however are essential to our wellbeing. So what are the bureaucrats, government and science lobby up to. What is the politics of food fascism. Are they just behaving as control freaks must or are they softening us up for extra taxes and government regulation of our dinner plates and the food we eat.

Face It: Eating Shite Makes You Fat And Ill

Governments are worried that we as a nation are getting too fat. Bigger ambulances and bigger prison cells are needed. They blame the public for lack of self control. But we are being brainwashed by advertisinf and the food industry into eating toxic chemicals that make us gain weight. Hilreious comedy rant.

Botanists Identify 28,000 Medicinal Plants That Treat Ailments from Cancer to Diabetes

Written by (ANTIMEDIA)
In recent years, the term “plant medicine” has come to be associated with psychedelics like mushrooms and ayahuasca, which are increasingly documented to provide mental and emotional relief to users. But according to a recent analysis from Kew Gardens in the United Kingdom, there are over 28,000 other plants currently being used as medicine throughout the world.

The second annual report from Britain’s Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, located in London, is the result of the research and analysis of 128 scientists from 12 countries around across the globe.

We’re revolutionizing the news industry, but we need your help! Click here to get started.

According to their findings, there are 28,187 plants “currently recorded as being of medicinal use.

The report [pdf] explains:

In many regions of the world, people still rely on traditional plant-based medicines for their primary healthcare. This is especially true for many rural communities in Africa, parts of Asia, and Central and South America, where plants and knowledge of their traditional use are accessible and affordable. In other countries, many of these traditional plant-based medicines are being integrated through regulations into mainstream health systems.”

Though plant medicines are making their way into the mainstream, the researchers note that currently, just “16% (4,478) of the species used in plant-based medicines are cited in a medicinal regulatory publication.” Even so, they note data on drugs approved by the FDA and similar agencies:

Since 1981, 1,130 new therapeutic agents have been approved for use as pharmaceutical drugs, of which 593 are based on compounds from natural sources. Thirty-eight are derived from medicinal plants. Fifteen of the 56 natural drugs registered for the treatment of cancer since 1980 are derived from medicinal plants with a long history of traditional use.”

They note, for example, that “The anti-cancerous drugs vincristine and vinblastine are derived from the Madagascar periwinkle, Catharanthus roseus in the Apocynaceae family.”

Additionally:

For example drugs based on Paclitaxel have been isolated from the yew tree (Taxus spp.), Camptothecin from the happy tree, (Camptotheca acuminata) and Podophyllotoxin from the May apple (Podophyllum hexandrum and P. peltatum).”

Further, researchers have discovered over 1,000 species of beneficial plants since their survey last year. As Yahoo News summarized, “new plants discovered over the past year include nine species of a climbing vine used in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.

The report said two plants, artemisinin and quinine, are ‘among the most important weapons’ against malaria, which killed over 400,000 people in 2015,” Yahoo summarized.

According to Monique Simmonds, deputy director of science at Kew, “The report is highlighting the huge potential that there is for plants, in areas like diabetes and malaria,” Yahoo reported. “One study documents 656 flowering plant species used traditionally for diabetes, representing 437 genera and 111 families,” the report explains.

It also points out that of “only five drugs developed specifically for the symptomatic treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, two are derived from plants.”

Some particularly powerful species of plants include Fabaceae (pea and bean), Lamiaceae (mint), Euphorbiaceae (spurge), Apocynaceae (dogbane), Malvaceae (mallow), Apiaceae (parsley or carrot), and Ranunculaceae (buttercup). Their key classes of compounds are alkaloids (Fabaceae), terpenes (Lamiaceae),  diterpenoids (Euphorbiaceae), cardiac-glycosides (Apocynaceae), organic acids (Malvaceae), coumarins (Apiaceae), and alkaloids (Ranunculaceae). Another highly useful plant documented in the report is Moraceae, which is used in the treatment of diabetes.

Though their report offers great promise, they highlight some pitfalls. Stressing that correct labeling of plant medicines is vital, they explain:

Product labeling is frequently misleading, with the trade name ‘ginseng’, for example, referring to 15 different species of plant, each with its own particular chemistry and therapeutic properties[10]. Substitution by a Belgian clinic of one Chinese medicinal herb (‘Fang Ji’) with another sharing the same name, led to over 100 patients requiring kidney dialysis for the remainder of their lives.”

They also point out the threat to the plants themselves.

Increasing demand for herbal medicines (particularly for species covered by pharmacopoeias) threatens wild populations of many of these plants,” they note, adding that “ the focus of world trade on relatively few species of medicinal plants leads to sustainability and conservation issues, which ultimately lead to other plants being substituted, with potential risks to human health.”

They advocate more precise scientific labeling of plants and more “clarity on which plants have or have not been studied in drug discovery programmes.”

Such approaches,” they contend, “will be hugely important in improving our ability to realise current and future medicinal benefits from plants.”

As pharmaceutical drugs continue to wreak hazardous consequences, the healing power of natural plants appears to hold great promise for humans seeking treatment without the chemical side effects of current popular medicines.

Zika Virus Outbreak Centred On Area Where GM Mosquitos Were Released In 2015 – Why Are We Not Surprised
just as it was new media that broke the story of the Ebola / US Department of Defense link last year (Why does the DARPA bological Warfare Agency need a patent on the virus and why did The Pentagon and a US University have a research team in Africa working on genetically modifying the virus? – links below this article) so a link between american GM scientists and Zika has been exposed.

Is Technology Killing Us? Electrosensitivity, the 21st century disease
Is modern life making us ill? Yes, say those who suffer from electrosensitivity. Are they cranks, or should we all be throwing away our mobile phones? Well that might be a bit extreme, but maybe we should be thinking about how we use all our wireless gadgets.

We Told You So, Mobile Phones Do Cause Brain Tumours
For years we have been arguing against the ‘scientific concensus’ that mobile phones can cause brain tumours. As our founder Ian worked in the communications technology industry he was well placed to know there is a risk, workers would not be given health warnings if there wasn’t. Another academic / big money conspiracy.

Does Smoking Cause Lung Cancer? It Appears Not In The Eyes Of The Law.


It is, is it not, a scientific fact hat smoking causes lung cancer. Apparently not and once again we se there is no such thing as the science is settled. In a ruling that exposes the scientific method as simply building ad case that provides the amswer you wanted, a court judgement in Scotland shows that smoking cannot be identified as the cause of a case of cancer. This is a victory for smoking and the rights of smokers, a blow to the nanny state …
