A new report, by the journal Scientific Reports , finds that marijuana is far safer than other recreational drugs, including and especially alcohol.

Pot may be as much as 114 times safer than booze, say the researchers. The study also maintains that past research into alcohol has systematically underestimated the risks associated with its use.

The study sought to quantify the risk of death associated with the use of common recreational drugs. Alcohol, they found, was the deadliest substance, followed by heroin and cocaine. The safest drug was marijuana; it was also the only drug in the study that had a low mortality risk for users.

(OMNS Feb 3, 2015) Higher vitamin D blood levels may reduce the risk of many types of disease including autoimmune diseases, cancers, cardiovascular disease, dementia, diabetes mellitus and falls and fractures.

Research into the health effects associated with vitamin D continued to be strong in 2014. The number of publications with vitamin D in the title or abstract listed at pubmed.gov increased from 3,119 in 2011 to 3,919 in 2014. Seven vitamin D researchers (listed after this report) worked together to pick the 20 papers in 2014 that made the most contribution to understanding the health effects of vitamin D in 2014.

Papers are not in priority order, but instead grouped by type of study. For the purpose of this article "vitamin D" in the blood is a measurement of 25-hydroxyvitamin D or 25(OH)D.

According to recent reports, the FDA has approved yet another HPV vaccine, despite documented safety issues and the new vaccine containing an exceptionally high level of aluminum, a known neurotoxin.

Until now, only two vaccines have been manufactured to protect men and women against human papillomavirus (HPV), a virus believed to be the leading cause of cervical cancer: Cervarix, which is believed to protect against strains 16 and 18 of the virus, and Gardasil, which is believed to protect against strains 6, 11, 16 and 18.

Is there a difference? Perhaps one of my readers can help me differentiate between one poison and the other. Whether you inhale it, drink it or eat it, a poison is a poison. I don't defend smoking, but there is a shameful double standard that exists at the expense of smokers and they know it. Why do government officials allow graphic images of disease on cigarette packages without extending the same courtesy to the labels on cosmetics, alcohol and junk food, some of which cause more disease and deaths annually than tobacco.

Marketing is acknowledged to be an important contributor to disease. It exists in numerous forms, the most recognized being television advertising. While there are efforts within policy to curb the incidence of marketing tactics which promote disease-promoting substances, those efforts appear to be quite biased.

A new study reveals just how profoundly misled we are about Bisphenol A and its analogs: they are at least 100x more toxic than we previously imagined.

An alarming new study establishes that the commonly used chemical bisphenol A used in tens of thousands of consumer products, and its lesser known but increasingly prevalent analogs, bisphenol S and F, are several orders of magnitude more disruptive to the endocrine systems of the developing male human fetus than previous toxicological risk assessments were capable of determining.

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...

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.

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."

Crimes Committed by Monsanto

Monsanto, Crimes?

Strong words they are. Something very peculiar that I must report. I have traveled all over this great country of ours (the USA) attempting to find someone who could tell me anything positive about Monsanto. I’m not the only one. If I did find someone, I had only later come to find out that they were indirectly on the Monsanto payroll.

Despite this voluntary and objective conviction, all the reporting and following of Monsanto leads me to do a reality check once a year. The writing below was produced in the 1990′s and it’s strange to read. Strange because the predictions in the writing of what’s to come have indeed happened.

I ask myself, “has Monsanto really committed any crimes?”

For example, so what if they’re methods for food production, among other things, result in the poisoning of human beings over their life span – you still get to live right?

You are insane if you are drinking Biotech's GMO-infused Kool-Aid. Here's why...

Let's put aside the debate about antigenic proteins introduced by transgenes in GMO crops. Transgenes are genes from species that are not naturally present in crops of feed or food importance, e.g. spider genes , bacterial genes, viral genes , etc. These transgenes are capable of producing proteins in the plants that have never been in the human diet over the course of human evolution, stretching back thousands, even millions of years. GM proponents and regulators claim pseudo-scientifically that these novel new GM foods are 'substantially equivalent' to conventional ones, despite a lack of human clinical toxicology studies to prove it; or, they claim that these proteins are inconsequential and do not represent a threat to human health, or the health of the biosphere as whole because they say so – a plea to their own self-appointed, baseless authority.

In an age where cancer rates are rising incredibly fast, the need for alternative treatments is becoming even more prominent. Research is being put into a number of different avenues with one supporting Dr. Marty Pagel, PhD, from the University of Arizona Cancer Center, who will test the effects of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) on breast cancer patients. He is receiving a $ 2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to find to perform the study.

An important note to understand right off the top- any treatment for cancer will react differently in various patients and also to various types of cancers. Traditional methods can work well on some cancers and terribly on others. The same can be said for various natural cures. On top of this fact, the state of the human body receiving treatment with either method also plays a big role. Do they have access to clean organic food? Clean water? Do they believe and feel they can overcome their disease? These are all important factors with any treatment.

A number of studies in the past have shown interesting in vivo results surrounding the use of sodium bi-carbonate on cancer tumors. While research is not fully complete on the matter, early results are already showing some powerful effects of tumor metastasis. This of course encourages funding for further research as early signs are looking good.
