In September 2013, a bombshell report from Credit Suisse's Research Institute brought into sharp focus the staggering health consequences of sugar on the health of Americans. The group revealed that approximately "30%–40% of healthcare expenditures in the USA go to help address issues that are closely tied to the excess consumption of sugar."[1] The figures suggest that our national addiction to sugar runs us an incredible $1 trillion in healthcare costs each year. The Credit Suisse report highlighted several health conditions including coronary heart diseases, type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome, which numerous studies have linked to excessive sugar intake.[2]

Just a year earlier in 2012, a report by Dr. Sanjay Gupta appearing on 60 Minutes featured the work of Dr. Robert Lustig, an endocrinologist from California who gained national attention after a lecture he gave titled "Sugar: The Bitter Truth " went viral in 2009. Lustig's research has investigated the connection between sugar consumption and the poor health of the American people. He has published twelve articles in peer-reviewed journals identifying sugar as a major factor in the epidemic of degenerative disease that now afflicts our country. The data compiled by Lustig clearly show how excessive sugar consumption plays a key role in the development of many types of cancer, obesity, type II diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease. His research has led him to conclude that 75% of all diseases in America today are brought on by the American lifestyle and are entirely preventable.[3]

Until the airing of this program, no one in the "official" world acknowledged anything wrong with sugar, here is a sampling of some the latest research available to them if they chose to look:

Web of Trust or WOT is a program, available as a browser add-on, which collects user ratings of websites. The program can be freely downloaded from the WOT site at

http://www.mywot.com/en/download

WOT will do two things for you:

As you surf the web, color coded little icons are added to links to let you know what other users think of the website, whether they believe it is reliable, whether their commercial offerings are honest and whether the site should be avoided by children.

Web of Trust also lets you 'vote' on sites, to increase or decrease their user rated reputation scores. Every WOT user can vote once for each site, and according to the developers, the scores are extremely difficult to "game", meaning it is difficult to give someone a bad reputation by automated or group voting.

Why is it then that sites that carry information on natural medicine, sites that inform about the dangers of vaccines, and in general sites that do not agree with the pharma-dominated medical paradigm are often rated in an extremely negative way?

It does not make sense that the users of those sites would give them negative ratings. Most of those sites' users go to them for the information they find interesting and useful. Rather than negative, the sites should be rated positively by users. Yet, we see the exact contrary. The more honest the information on a site, the more likely it is to be flagged as "unreliable" and having "a poor reputation".

Taking Antidepressants Nearly Doubles Your Chance of Relapse

Not only does this study demonstrate that antidepressants worsen the condition, it also shows that the underlying theory of a chemical imbalance is a bunch of hooey.

A new study demonstrates that using antidepressants nearly doubles the chance of suffering a major depressive relapse—and soon after discontinuing the drugs. This, of course, creates a vicious cycle that results in dependence on the drugs.

Published in the journal, Frontiers of Evolutionary Psychology, another highly signficant finding was made. Not only do antidepressants worsen the condition they're meant to treat, the underlying theory that there is a chemical imbalance in the brain is pure nonsense. Antidepressants do not treat an imbalance. These drugs actually create it!

The Study

The study, entitled "Blue again: perturbational effects of antidepressants suggest monoaminergic homeostasis in major depression", shows that these drugs interfere with the brain's homeostasis. The meta-analysis discovered that people who don't take any antidepressants have a 25% chance of relapsing, while those who do have a relapse rate of 42%.

The studies reviewed included virtually every permutation of antidepressant use: those who started on placebos and were switched to the real medications, those who started on real medications and were switched to placebos, those who took placebos throughout the studies, and those who took only placebos.

NaturalNews exclusive: International Medical Council on Vaccination refutes vaccine propaganda with myth-busting report

Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/031173_vaccines_science.html#ixzz1Cn6msfEX

NewImage.jpg(NaturalNews) To hear it from proponents of the vaccine industry, vaccines are based on rock-solid science that proves them to be completely safe and widely effective. These beliefs, however, are not factually based on real science but rather a persistent vaccine mythology that has been propagandized by the vaccine industry, medical practitioners and even governments which underwrite vaccine risks.

Today, the International Medical Council on Vaccination (www.VaccinationCouncil.org) has released, exclusively through NaturalNews.com, a groundbreaking document containing the signatures of over 80 family physicians, brain surgeons and professors of pathology, chemistry and immunity, all of which have signed on to a document stating, on the record, that vaccines pose a significant risk of harm to the health of children and that there is no real science backing the "vaccine mythology" which claims that vaccines are somehow good for children.

This groundbreaking document, called Vaccines: Get the Full Story, is available as a free download from NaturalNews.com. Click the report cover image on the right to go directly to the download page, where you'll find downloads available in 9 languages, including Spanish, French, Hebrew and Russian.

You have permission to share this report. Please also share the download page with others so that moms and parents can get educated about the risks associated with vaccines and thereby protect their children from the risk of harm caused by vaccines.

The vaccine industry's message is like a broken record: Vaccines are "safe and effective," they say. But repeating a lie over and over again does not magically make it true. Any such declaration of vaccine safety or effectiveness must be based on actual scientific inquiry, and the real science is utterly lacking on vaccines. Did you know, for example, that MMR and seasonal flu vaccines have never been clinically tested against non-vaccinated individuals?

Did you also know that even though vaccines can cause long-term damage in children, with symptoms appearing months or even years later, they are typically only assessed for side effects for two or three weeks?

Swine flu jab linked to rare nerve disease

Health watchdogs have admitted for the first time that there may be a possible link between the swine flu jab and an increased risk of developing a rare nerve disease.

By Richard Alleyne, Science Correspondent DailyTelegraph

Experts are carrying out studies to examine a possible association between the vaccine and Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a condition which attacks the nervous system and can cause paralysis and even death.

The authorities have always denied any link although it had been suggested a previous swine flu vaccine had caused cases of the disease in America in the 1970s.

EFSA evaluates the safety of steviol glycosides

The European Food Safety Authority’s scientific Panel on additives, the ANS Panel, has assessed the safety of steviol glycosides, sweeteners extracted from plant leaves, and established an Acceptable Daily Intake for their safe use. The assessment has been sent to the European Commission which will consider whether or not to authorise the substances in the European Union for their proposed use in particular in sugar free or reduced energy foods such as certain flavoured drinks, confectionery with no added sugar or energy reduced soups.

10 Drugs You Should Never Take!

10 Drugs You Should Never Take!

We’re in the age of “conveyor-belt medicine.” The mainstream medical system is set up to allow your doctor just enough time to give you a quick diagnosis followed by a prescription or a needless procedure. Rarely does it allow you the time to discuss much of anything that could give you a true foundation for good health, such as dietary changes, appropriate exercises and healthy weight-loss goals. Profit-bloated drug companies are at the helm of our healthcare system. They exist to serve their bottom lines—not your health needs. They’re vested in you staying sick.

Offering cutting edge alternatives to health and wellness is what HSI is all about….but even more than that, it’s the right thing to do. Unlike drug companies, whose sole concern is financial gain at the expense of the folks they’re supposed to be helping, our mission is helping you stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible.

Our members come to us at their wits’ end. Their relief is beyond measure when they hear that there are safer alternatives to the drugs they are struggling with—physically and financially.

Now, we’d like to share with you the same advice we give to our members—starting with the 10 drugs you should avoid and the reasons why.

Reforming Medicine - Can it be done?

| | Comments (2)

Western scientific medicine has been dominated for almost a century by a strong industrial interest group, the pharmaceutical manufacturers. This domination and the commercial interest behind it, prevent any real reform even in the face of evidence that some natural treatment method works better than the pharma-based method of choice.

Since public health is deteriorating, reform seems needed.

A recent discussion I have had with some friends on facebook, may serve as an illustration and could perhaps show how reforms may become possible, despite the seemingly overwhelming strength of the pharmaceutical juggernaut.

It started out with a link to a study that shows how ascorbic acid (vitamin C) in pharmacologic concentrations could have an important role in cancer treatment...

Aspartame has been renamed and is now being marketed as a natural sweetener
by Ethan Huff, citizen journalist

(NaturalNews) In response to growing awareness about the dangers of artificial sweeteners, what does the manufacturer of one of the world's most notable artificial sweeteners do? Why, rename it and begin marketing it as natural, of course. This is precisely the strategy of Ajinomoto, maker of aspartame, which hopes to pull the wool over the eyes of the public with its rebranded version of aspartame, called "AminoSweet".

Over 25 years ago, aspartame was first introduced into the European food supply. Today, it is an everyday component of most diet beverages, sugar-free desserts, and chewing gums in countries worldwide. But the tides have been turning as the general public is waking up to the truth about artificial sweeteners like aspartame and the harm they cause to health. The latest aspartame marketing scheme is a desperate effort to indoctrinate the public into accepting the chemical sweetener as natural and safe, despite evidence to the contrary.

According to a news article in Russia this week, autopsies on H1N1 victims doctors have confirmed pneumonia was not the cause of death. Cardiopulmonary insufficiency and cardiogenic shock are to blame and antibiotics should not be used.
The virus is said to be a mixture of Para influenza and influenza A/H1N1. It penetrates the mucus membranes, and then enters directly into the lungs causing bleeding.

Ukraine Deaths are not Pneumonia

The Head of the Chernivtsi regional forensic bureau, Professor Victor Bachinsky PhD, makes a strong statement, "All the victims of the virus in Bukovina (22 persons aged 20 to 40 years) died not from bilateral (double) pneumonia, as previously thought, but as a result of viral distress syndrome, i.e. the total destruction of the lungs. In the Chernivtsi region 18 people have died. We studied all the history and evidence from this disease, preclinical, clinical, resuscitation. When we perform an autopsy organs and tissues have histological studies (cell analysis) and we concluded that it was not pneumonia, and has no relation to pneumonia whatsoever."
