People with the worst vitamin D deficiency are highly susceptible to illness and suffer respiratory infections than those with sufficient levels. Vitamin D supplementation could reduce flare-ups of lung disease by more than 40% in patients who are deficient, say researchers.

We know that in the absence of vitamin D from sunlight, disease increases more than 1000 percent. Data from systematic reviews of several population-based studies shows that more than a third of populations worldwide may suffer from low levels of vitamin D.

The randomised trial data, published in Lancet Respiratory Medicine, is the first clinical trial to investigate the impact of vitamin D supplementation on severity and duration of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) symptoms "finding that supplementation with the vitamin had a dramatic impact on COPD patients who were vitamin D deficient at the start of the trial."

I snapped this picture on the way to the grocery store the other day, and was struck by how perfectly the 'thousand words' it spoke matched up with my opinion on what people should do if ever they are tempted to visit a pharmacy for anything other than necessary items, such as a nail file or diapers, namely: STOP!

Why am I so repugnant to the concept of frequenting these dispensary institutions? The fact that they not only sell cigarettes, but feature them at the front counter, forcing those who may actually need a pill or two to hobble all the way to the back to fetch them, figures somewhere into my sentiment. The fact that they are proliferating like metastatic nodules in any area with a population sufficiently sick and/or over-medicated enough to support one (and sometimes two!) on each and every block, has something to do with the way I feel as well.

But are the pharmacies really to blame? They largely fill orders placed by...

Given the high costs, both direct and indirect, associated with COPD, there is an urgent need to identify novel approaches to treat the disease,” said Avrum Spira, MD, MSc, professor of medicine at Boston University Medical Center. [1]

The COPD Epidemic

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an umbrella term that includes chronic bronchitis, emphysema, bronchiectasis, and asthma . But it most commonly describes two often overlapping and life threatening lung diseases: emphysema and chronic bronchitis. COPD is a progressively worsening debilitating lung disease that adversely affects breathing by obstructing airflow and causing lung tissue damage.

COPD is the third-leading cause of death in the United States and the fifth leading cause of death worldwide. The National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) estimate that an additional 12 million people have COPD but haven’t been diagnosed.

The National Health Federation (NHF) participated in an FDA-arranged conference call earlier this week in preparation for the U.S. position to be taken at the upcoming meeting of the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses to be held in Bali, Indonesia, this late November. The topic was the proposed draft Nutrient Reference Values (NRVs) for labeling purposes in the guidelines on nutrition labeling. This is a joint FAO/WHO food standards program purportedly designed to protect children at risk from malnutrition and wasting by using fortified infant formula , follow-up formula, cereals, and also to set NRVs for infants and children. Unfortunately, Codex is allowing "fortification" with GMO-contaminated ingredients and that turned out to be the focus of the conference call.

This humble, but immensely powerful seed, kills MRSA, heals the chemical weapon poisoned body, stimulates regeneration of the dying beta cells within the diabetic's pancreas, and yet too few even know it exists.

The seeds of the annual flowering plant, Nigella Sativa, have been prized for their healing properties since time immemorial. While frequently referred to among English-speaking cultures as Roman coriander, black sesame, black cumin, black caraway and onion seed, it is known today primarily as black seed, which is at the very least an accurate description of its physical appearance.

Some RNA viruses are being discovered by scientists as having the ability to protect themselves by exploiting a natural "brake" on the immune system, research has shown. They say their function is complex, not from nature and involves genetic material that could only have been designed in laboratories to manipulate gene activity and exploit inflammatory processes.

201411061723.jpg

Viruses which can cause diseases including cancer, exploit the tiny molecules present in everyone's DNA, called microRNAs, to turn cells into a viral 'hotel' which they can check into, to cause infection and spread says research in journal Nature Cell Biology.

Scientists estimate a third of genes may be regulated by microRNAs. The study shows how viruses are able to "upregulate" the production of immune system microRNAs to facilitate infection.

"This is not new research," says Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Morgan Blankenship. "Although many RNA viruses have evolved with humans, we've seen a steady rise in a variety biological anomalies that did not exist even 30 years ago."

The CDC's (Centers for Disease Control) annual Orwellian "flu season" brainwashing fest is about to begin. Flu fear mongering and alarming flu statistics will soon be bombarding the air waves, a massive Big Pharma media marketing blitz masquerading as science with one purpose: to drive the American people to unthinkingly roll up their sleeves and get the toxic flu jab.

The media in conjunction with the CDC will ratchet up the public's fear with almost daily worst case-scenario flu outbreak advisories while simultaneously pushing the solution: Big Pharma's unproven flu vaccine.

Is there really such a thing as a Flu season? Spring, summer, fall and winter; these are real seasons. There are no other seasons. The flu season is a ruse. It's a marketing ploy that was invented by "Madison Avenue" to sell vaccines.

But what about those nasty invisible germs that are conspiring at the same time each year to target and infect you? Those super flu bugs that travel halfway around the world and miraculously manage to kill the same number of people in the USA year after year?

Vitamin C powder

If there were a drug that worked on Ebola you should use it. There isn't. There is only vitamin C. But you must be extremely careful what you believe, because, as it ever was, the Internet is full of dangerous loonies. For coming up to a decade now the OMNS has reported on nutritional therapies; we leave the medical politics to one side and work from the facts. Here are the facts about vitamin C and Ebola.

1. Taking a gram or so of day of vitamin C won't protect you against anything except acute scurvy; it doesn't matter whether the vitamin is liposomal, nano-particles, or even gold-plated. Beware of websites, companies, and Youtube clips making wild and unsubstantiated claims about the efficacy of vitamin C.

Fluoride is put in your drinking water ‘for your teeth’ without your consent, but did you know that it could also be calcifying your arteries?

A few years ago, we reported on a study evaluating a new diagnostic technology that inadvertently revealed a link between fluoride exposure and coronary artery disease. Our report stirred up quite a lot of controversy and criticism, even leading one of the most respected figures in alternative medicine (deservedly so) – Dr. Russell Blaylock — to call us out on Infowars for our allegedly sophomoric interpretation of the following article: “Association of vascular fluoride uptake with vascular calcification and coronary artery following article disease.” As one can see, the study’s results revealed a hitherto largely unknown connection between fluoride exposure, coronary artery disease and cardiovascular events (e.g. heart attack).

The factory farmed meat industry tells us that beef is a nutritional powerhouse with essential nutrients we need for energy. They tell us that meat is one of the best sources of iron and packed with vitamins. According to the authorities on meat, it's also calorie-wise and part of a heart healthy diet to manage cholesterol. Despite all these outlandish claims by the industry, they never tell us what actually goes into meat. What preservatives are permitted after slaughter? What chemicals are used to inhibit growth of bacteria or enhance color? How is shelf-life prolonged? These are all details the meat industry does not elaborate on or explain at any length. Here are the facts they don't want you to know.

Synthetic preservatives are added to 70 percent of all factory farmed meat and poultry to prevent spoilage, rancidity and mould growth. If you're going to invest your money in meat products, the only way to preserve your health is to stay away from factory farmed, chemically and artificially produced meat. Here are 10 things most people have no clue are inside most meat products at major grocery retailers.
