Natural Products Association Issues Disinfo Announcement over Dietary Supplements and Swine Flu (opinion) (NaturalNews) The natural products industry leaders are engaged in a clever "disinfo" campaign to brainwash people into thinking that herbs and nutritional products are useless for defending against swine flu. Today, the Natural Products Association (NPA), Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) took part in issuing a joint warning against any "natural" remedies that are being promoted as ways to prevent or treat H1N1 influenza. Their joint statement is classic disinformation, stating, "We are unaware of any scientific data supporting the use of dietary supplements to treat swine flu." That's because according to health authorities in the U.S., there is no such thing as any dietary supplement that treats any disease whatsoever. If any dietary supplement were found to treat a disease, it would shift categories to become a "drug," not a "dietary supplement." Why is that the case? Obviously, plants, herbs and real foods are not useless.

Smokers or past smokers: Six ways to cleanse and revitalize your lungs Share by PF Louis – Natural News It’s been observed that even former smokers who quit years ago have traces of lung damage. Even if one has never smoked, second hand cigarette smoke, industrial pollution, vehicular exhaust fumes and now chemtrails with downward drifting heavy metal nano-particles all contribute to some level of lung damage for almost everyone. So whether you once smoked or never puffed on chemical-laden, radioactive (from the fertilizer) tobacco, detoxing and regenerating lung tissue may still be appropriate for you. By the way, the notion that lung damage is irreparable is not true. (1) Lifestyle changes are in order as a foundation for any recommended remedies to have significant and lasting effects.

However, lots of people are not even aware they have this condition, simply because it has no warning signs and symptoms. It is typically caused by improper diet, smoking and alcohol abuse.

Ronnie Cummins on Turning the Tide Against Monsanto By Dr. Mercola Between October 18 and November 5 the next big GMO-labeling vote will take place in the United States; this time in Washington State, where citizens will cast their votes for the people's initiative 522, "The People's Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act." Initiative 522 (I-522) will require seeds, raw agricultural commodities, and processed foods to be labeled if they’re produced using genetic engineering.1The success of this ballot initiative is dependent on public donations, and we’re up against industry giants with very deep pockets, so please, help us win this key GMO labeling battle and continue to build momentum for GMO labeling in other states by making a donation to the Organic Consumers Fund (OCF) today. “We need to get these crops off the market or marginalized. Why Are Chemical Companies in Charge of Our Food Supply? It’s worth remembering though that Monsanto is not alone in recklessly pushing genetically engineered (GE) crops and foods.
Obamacare GMOs plus Obamacare: Your ticket to slavery by Jon Rappoport November 20, 2012 www.nomorefakenews.com At this late date, there are still people who don’t see the consequences of Obamacare. They agree that medical treatment has an alarming toxic track record. Why are these people blind? Also, they don’t want to “be negative.” Some day, I’m sure, being negative will get you a public decapitation in the town square. Okay. The recent study which revealed that rats fed with GMOs developed cancer is just one example of the health hazards of GMO food. The argument advanced by the Monsanto forces and their allies is: “people who eat GMO food aren’t dropping like flies, so we’re all okay.” This is a case made by con artists for idiots. GMO crops were originally introduced with no human safety studies. People could be developing cancers as a result of eating GMO food and no one would know. The GMO overlords need a cover-story-diversion for the harm their foods inflict. That’s what health insurance does.

The Power of the Fork – Part Two In my last blog, I explored how your diet affects not only your personal health but the health of the soil, water, air, and global climate. What we choose to eat determines whether or not we deplete nature’s capital, as well as our human capital, the richness that comes from a healthy, vibrant community. Fossil Fuels and Drugs Hidden in Our Food How could it be that the price of gas and the price of our food are correlated? The fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides used on these farms are generally oil by-products. These factory farms are producing “Frankenmeat” that destroys our bodies and degrades our environment at an ever-increasing cost. Industrial food production doesn’t just require more energy and contribute to global warming, it also exposes us to harm because the foods we eat contain altered proteins, fats, and sugars, as well as unhealthy antibiotics and hormones. Pharmaceuticals have become essential to our “modern” food production. Frankenfoods and the Farm Bill
Pure Protein Powder | Whey Protein Concentrate - Mercola.com Top athletes and those ‘dead-serious’ about enhancing their health and fitness never stop searching for and demanding better ways to improve their performance and overall well-being. I certainly can relate to this drive and attitude because I share it as well. I last seriously competed when I ran a 2:50 marathon in the early 80s. But I continue to demand the best possible all-natural solutions for building muscle and for peak performance. I need to stay fit as I seek to uncover the truth about natural health solutions to people around the world. Athletes may search the world over for more efficient ways to train… and better ways to optimize their diet and maximize the fuel they need. I’m not sure how many athletes actually weigh their food, but this clearly illustrates the passion many top athletes share when searching for that extra edge they need to boost performance -- from pro athletes to Olympians to serious body builders. More on this coming up… So where can you find leucine?
Don't let Monsanto take this one away. Dear Organic Consumer, Last year this time, you were pouring your heart and soul into winning the GMO labeling battle in California. So was I. Then Monsanto snatched it away. Please make a generous donation today to help us win this year’s key GMO labeling battle in Washington State. Twelve months later, here we are again. But we’re facing the same enemy. We are ahead in the polls in Washington State. We need to run more ads. Tomorrow, the ballots will be mailed. Once again, victory is so close we can taste it. But our experts in Washington State are clear: I-522 is not in the bag. This has always been a David versus Goliath battle. We need to win this one. Thank you!
