Before you pop open a bottle of California Merlot, there is something you should know: trace amounts of glyphosate, the primary toxic chemical found in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, have been found in 100% of California wines tested by the national GMO awareness group, Moms Across America.

Chuck Norris connects vaccines, allergies

| | Comments (0)
Many experts are already pointing to 2014 as clouding up to be one of the worst allergy seasons on record. It will certainly be among the longest, starting weeks earlier than in the past and estimated to extend through October. Fueling this “pollen vortex,” as some reporters are calling it, are higher-than-normal carbon dioxide levels in the air, which trigger more pollen production – maybe as much as five times more pollen than usual. A lack of rainfall to wash it away and increasing drought conditions around the country worsen the situation.

A new article in the journal Pediatrics is calling on health professionals to stop saying that breastfeeding is natural, arguing that doing so gives the impression that natural parenting practices are healthier. The authors have started a public campaign to end the positive use of the word natural, claiming that it is associated with such "problematic" practices as home birth, homeschooling and the rejection of GMO foods, and that natural parenting movements are interfering with vaccination efforts.

Vitamin D supplements taken during pregnancy do not improve bone mass in babies compared with placebo overall; however, those born in winter months did gain significant bone benefits from maternal vitamin D supplementation, show results of the Maternal Vitamin D Osteoporosis Study (MAVIDOS) study, published online March 1 in Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology.

MAVIDOS is the first randomized controlled trial investigating the effects of pregnant women taking vitamin D on offspring bone mass, and initial results were reported at the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research meeting last October.

Bacteria in Our Gut Affects HIV -- Is There a Solution?



Across our bodies -- on our skin, in our mouth and nose, inside our intestines, on our genitalia, and in other places -- colonies of microorganisms flourish. We call these colonies of bacteria, viruses and fungi that live in and on our bodies the microbiota, or the microbiome. The largest microbiome colony lives in our gastrointestinal tract -- our gut -- and in healthy people, helps us do things like digest carbohydrates, produce vitamins and prevent harmful pathogens from flourishing. When there's a disruption to our gut microbiome, problems can arise.

Now, researchers are investigating how HIV and the microbiome are linked. At CROI 2016, and at a recent San Francisco General Hospital HIV Grand Rounds presentation, research was presented about how HIV and other things change the gut microbiome -- and if things like fecal microbial transplantation and probiotics can make it healthy again.

Curb Antibiotic Use in Farm Animals

Curb Antibiotic Use in Farm Animals
New guidelines to curb the overuse of drugs in food animals are inadequate to deal with a growing crisis

In 1945 Alexander Fleming, the man who discovered penicillin, warned that overuse of his miracle drug could make bacteria immune to it. He was right—and not just about penicillin: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has estimated that antibiotic-resistant bacteria infect more than two million people a year, at least 23,000 of whom die. A significant part of that overuse, the cdc says, involves feeding the drugs to the animals we eat. Farmers do this not to cure or prevent disease but simply to make livestock grow bigger and faster.

CE Collective Evolution

It seems as if it was yesterday when the masses were completely unaware of the concerns being raised by a number of internationally recognized scientists regarding Genetically Modified Foods (GM). Now, dozens of countries in Europe have completely banned or have severe restrictions on GMOs, which includes the pesticides that go along with them. In fact, 19 new countries in Europe recently banned the growing of Genetically Modified foods in their countries, citing a number of health and environmental concerns. You can read more about that here.

The Difference Between Organic Food & Conventional Food

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), organic farms and processors must not use any genetically modified ingredients. This means that organic farmers can’t plant GMO seeds, an organic cow can’t eat GMO feed, an organic soup producer can’t use any GMO ingredients, and so on. Farmers and processors must show that they aren’t using GMOs and that they are protecting their products from contact with prohibited substances from farm to table. In order for something to qualify as organic, it must also be free from most synthetic materials, like pesticides and antibiotics. (source)(source)

Toddler temperament could be influenced by different types of gut bacteria


Date: May 27, 2015
Source: Ohio State University Center for Clinical and Translational Science

Summary: The microbiome of a toddler's gut may influence their behavior, a new study suggests. Scientists found correlations between temperament and the presence of specific types of intestinal bacteria in both girls and boys. The researchers aren't looking for a way to help parents modify the 'terrible twos,' but for clues about how - and where - chronic illnesses like obesity, asthma, allergies and bowel diseases start.

High-dose Intravenous Vitamin C as a Successful Treatment of Viral Infections


Do you know that injections of mega doses of vitamin C were successfully used in treating polio, diphtheria, herpes zoster (shingles), herpes simplex, chicken pox, influenza, measles, mumps, and viral pneumonia in the middle of the 20th century? Most of these treatments are described in the book “Injectable Vitamin C: Effective Treatment for Viral and Other Diseases.” This book is a tribute to and acknowledgment of the important thinking and work of Dr. Fred R. Klenner and other physicians and researchers who worked in medicine from the 1930s to the 1970s. They made the pioneering efforts on the medical use of injectable vitamin C in the treatment of viral infection. One of the first studies in the inactivation of poliomyelitis virus in an in vitro setting using crystalline vitamin C (ascorbic acid) was designed by C. W. Jungeblut, MD in 1935.

In 1949, Dr. Klenner reported successful treatment of polio, diphtheria, herpes zoster, herpes simplex, chicken pox, influenza, measles, mumps, and viral pneumonia with injections of large doses of vitamin C. “The results,” he wrote, “which we have reported in virus diseases using vitamin C as the antibiotic may seem fantastic.”

EcoWatch

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. | November 1, 2015

Finally, courageous Atlanta CBS reporter Ben Swann tells the truth about the Center for Disease Control (CDC) whistleblower, the most censored story of the millennium. CDC’s senior vaccine safety scientist, Dr. William Thompson, has confessed that the CDC vaccine division has been concealing the link between certain vaccines and brain injuries including tics and autism, particularly in African-American children.

Watch Swann’s coverage here:
