Monsanto’s Dirty Dozen | GMO Awareness When you take a moment to reflect on the history of product development at Monsanto, what do you find? Here are twelve products that Monsanto has brought to market. See if you can spot the pattern… #1 – Saccharin Did you know Monsanto got started because of an artificial sweetener? After mounting pressure from consumers, the Calorie Control Council, and manufacturers of artificial sweeteners and diet sodas, along with additional studies (several conducted by the sugar and sweetener industry) that reported flaws in the 1970s studies, saccharin was delisted from the NIH’s Carcinogen List. #2 – PCBs During the early 1920s, Monsanto began expanding their chemical production into polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) to produce coolant fluids for electrical transformers, capacitors, and electric motors.

Prescription Drugs Now Leading Cause Of Accidental Death ~ Time To Return To Holistic Medicine Becca Wolford, Contributing WriterWaking Times I read a very disturbing news article today: Prescription drug deaths now outnumber other deaths in the U.S., this includes accidental traffic deaths. Prescription medications have become the leading cause of illness, disability, and death. Have you looked at the information sheets that come with the prescriptions? These deaths are not only from accidental overdoses, but from the side effects and also from mixing with other prescription drugs. “Most drugs approved by the FDA are under-tested for adverse drug reactions, yet offer few new benefits. This does NOT mean that all prescription drugs are dangerous and should never be used. It’s very easy to treat symptoms, but treating symptoms will not heal the cause. Let’s look at holistic medicine, for example. Holistic medicine treats the whole person – mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. If one aspect is not working properly, it will affect the other parts. About the Author

New research - Morgellons proven to be a real disease (NaturalNews) Morgellons Disease is characterized by bizarre symptomology such as experiencing biting sensations on the skin, painful skin eruptions, strange fibers growing from the skin, unexplained body pain and neurological deficits (1,2). It is estimated that millions of people worldwide suffer from this unexplained affliction with the medical community quick to dismiss their symptoms as 'delusional parasitosis' or 'delusional infestation' and hence believe it's all in their heads. Medical authorities often times blame the Morgellons sufferers for inflicting the wounds on themselves and believe the fibers simply emanate from clothing. After thousands of complaints to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in January of 2008, the CDC paid researchers over $300,000 to conduct a 3-year study on Morgellons. - Abnormal functioning of the follicular keratinocytes (genetic alterations in DNA caused hair follicles and skin to malfunction).

Second Opinion Newsletter Free Special Presentation The Lazarus Cure How a Nobel Prize winning discovery can help you live longer and beat almost any disease. It’s nothing short of amazing. I’ll tell you all about the Lazarus Cure in just a moment, but first I need to explain why your body ages in the first place. There are many symptoms of old age, but new research shows there is one main cause behind almost all of them. Here’s how it works. As you may know, every cell in your body contains DNA. The DNA at the end of the chromosome is called the telomere. As you know, when the cap on your shoelace wears out, your shoelace unravels and stops functioning. Research shows the shorter your telomeres are, the more likely you are to suffer from cancer, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, macular degeneration, and even skin aging. Shortened telomeres increase your risk of dying from breast, prostate, colorectal, bladder, neck, lung and kidney cancer. The mice grew new neurons in their brain. But that’s not all.
