* Kids Given This Have 22 Times the Rate of Ear Infections
32 times the rate of sinusitis, 4x allergies, 2x asthma, 4x hayfever, 3x ADHD and 19 times higher odds of Autism based on this 7,850 person survey. Yet 98% of parents give it to their children - and it's mainly mothers with college educations that say no.
> [It's vaccines.]
* Forget Antibiotics, Steroids and Medication - Starve This Toxin out of Your Body
Your doctor probably isn't trained to help you with this problem that can destroy your lungs, thyroid and health. Instead of blindly accepting their advice and damaging your liver - stop eating these foods and literally starve this poison out of your body.
> [Starve mold from your body. 90 percent of sinus infections are fungal in origin. Yet more than 90 percent of physicians continue to prescribe antibiotics for sinus infection that target bacteria, not fungi. Antibiotics kill off your good bacteria and yeast that would naturally keep the pathological fungi at bay. Without these good bacteria, fungi, including mold, are allowed to spread unchecked. Nasal steroid inhalers have become very commonly prescribed for chronic sinusitis. Because people often experience short-lived relief from symptoms, they sometimes believe this treatment is working — at least initially. But is it really? The steroid may temporarily decrease inflammation, which may make you feel a bit better for a short period of time. However, steroids suppress your immune response. If your immune response is compromised, then the infection is actually encouraged, which perpetuates the underlying problem. It's like pouring gasoline on a fire. Board certified environmental medical specialist and pediatric allergist, Doris Rapp, states that cortisone (a steroid drug) tends to allow infections that normally would be confined to a certain area of your body to spread to other parts of your body. She is concerned this may be having dire implications for asthmatic children. Asthma, like sinusitis, often has a fungal origin that is missed and inappropriately treated. Cortisone has been one of the primary methods of treating asthma in the U.S. since 1976. And since that time, the death rate from asthma has TRIPLED in the U.S. The last thing you want to do if you have a fungal infection is suppress your immune system's ability to fight it! Yet, that's precisely what these steroid medications are doing. - Kurt and Lee Ann Billings found the most beneficial intervention in their recovery was a radical change in diet. What they did was cut out every food that fuels fungal growth—namely, sugars, grains and grain-based foods, and simple carbohydrates. By eliminating milk, bread, crackers, pasta, cereal, nearly all fruit, and anything made from refined white flour, they literally STARVED the mold out of their bodies.]

* Red Alert: The Vaccine Responsible for Half the Awards for Injury and Death
All vaccines can cause serious side effects when injected into your body - but this one was involved in over half of the 2,480 awards for vaccine injury and death totalling $2 billion dollars. Plus, the vaccine which doubles the death rate in babies.
> [In the United States, over half of the 2,480 compensation awards made made under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, which total more than $2 billion dollars, have involved brain inflammation and encephalopathy resulting in permanent brain damage associated with whole cell and acelullar pertussis vaccine in DPT and DtaP shots.]
* Child Have ADHD? Stop Feeding Them This
Yes, give your child a holiday from these foods. Then replace these drinks, give them this supplement (research has shown it works more effectively than drugs like Ritalin and Concerta) and the odds are good their behavior will improve.
> [There's evidence suggesting that gluten {found in wheat flour etc.} sensitivity may be at the root of many neurological and psychiatric conditions, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). ]

* What Every Parent Must Know: This Occurs Before the Age of 6
You're encouraged to give your child a massive dosage of this before he/she turns 6 - an obvious assault to his immune system and brain. But why? Especially when it could be the reason twice as many infants die in America as Sweden or Japan.
> [Most babies the in the U.S. get more than two dozen doses of vaccines by the time they are one year old. A new study finds developed nations, who give their infants the most vaccines in the first year of life, have the highest infant death rates.]

* 20 TIMES the Risk of Autism When You Make This Choice
By making this choice you bypass your natural immune system safety net - an immune system error with drastic implications for illnesses from the common cold to autism. See how this choice affects various illnesses, how IgA protects you, and the raging controversy over immunity.
> [Vaccine Autism Connection: the incidence of autism has increased to 1 in 100 children, most of them vaccinated; the incidence in the unvaccinated group was about one in 2,000, which is TWENTY  times lower than in the vaccinated group.]
* If You're Taking This Drug - Don't Take Aspirin
According to a study of 27,058 patients, combining these two drugs increases your risk of abnormal bleeding by 42%. On its own, it can thicken your artery walls and increase your risk of stroke by 45%- but when combined with aspirin, it can be fatal.
> [Using aspirin in combination with antidepressants may increase risk of abnormal bleeding by 42%. Research has overturned two of the prevailing theories of depression: the “chemical imbalance” theory, and the low serotonin theory, on which the current drug treatments are based. It has identified the cause of depression to be improper development and functioning of neurons, which may help explain why treatment strategies, such as nutrition, sun exposure and exercise outperform antidepressants, which latter have been shown to be no better than placebos. Effective treatment strategies for depression include a low-fructose whole food diet, fermented foods and/or probiotics, exercise, animal-based omega-3 fat, vitamin D (ideally from sun exposure) and vitamin B12.]

* How Many More of these "Unavoidably Unsafe" Drugs Will Become Mandatory?
And if you say no, you'll be branded an enemy of the state. In fact, a new law recently passed which allows doctors to vaccinate your child without your consent. Here's how to turn the tables on them and insulate your health.
Never Buy Meat, Potatoes or Herbs With This Label on it
> [Your health and liberty is seriously threatened by increasing pressure from pharmaceutical- and medical lobbyists promoting more mandatory vaccinations, effectively branding unvaccinated citizens as enemies of the state. In February, the U.S. Supreme Court granted pharmaceutical industry total immunity from lawsuits.]
* Never Buy Meat, Potatoes or Herbs With This Label on it
Or this little pink symbol. Why? Because it's been poisoned by radiation, including gamma rays, electron beams and x-rays. Studies on animals have revealed it has potential cancer-causing effects. Use these guidelines to avoid it at all costs.
> [Fortunately, the FDA currently requires that irradiated foods include labeling with the statement "treated with radiation" or "treated by irradiation" and the international symbol for irradiation, the radura, a plant symbol inside a broken circle.]

* New Study Shows This Vitamin Helps Prevent Depression
New research highlights how this vitamin may directly affect what may be the real sources of mental and emotional challenges -- levels of inflammation in your brain and GI tract, and the function of dopamine and norepinephrine. This is an exciting discovery for those who want to help protect their mental and emotional health.
> [A study of more than 81,000 women found those with the highest intake of vitamin D from food sources had a significantly lower prevalence of depressive symptoms. Vitamin D modulates inflammation in your body, which is also linked to depression. Optimizing your vitamin D levels through proper sun exposure, use of a safe tanning bed or vitamin D3 supplementation may be an important step to protect your mental and emotional health.]

Exceeding the legal limit of a potent carcinogen and neurotoxin by up to a whopping 910 times, this favorite American snack is a walking time bomb. Find out how it and its close cousins may be jeopardizing your family's health without you even knowing.
> [Stackable chips oftentimes contain so little actual potato that they cannot, technically, be considered “potato chips”.
One of the most hazardous ingredients in potato chips, Acrylamide, a cancer-causing and potentially neurotoxic chemical, is created when carbohydrate-rich foods are cooked at high temperatures, whether baked, fried, roasted or toasted. Ideally, you should consume foods that are raw or minimally processed to avoid these types of toxic byproducts of high-heat cooking and processing. The more raw food, the better, but strive to consume at least one-third of your food raw to protect your health.]
* Men Who Have this Popular Screening Have a Staggering 4-Fold Increase in Serious Blood Infections
Don't make this popular mistake, whether by peer pressure or doctor suggestion. It can lead you down a path of treatments that spike a staggering 4x increased risk in serious blood infections which can require weeks of treatment... and worse. What to do instead.
> [Canadian researchers have raised the alarm over prostate biopsies, citing a four-fold increase in serious blood infections over the past decade from the procedure. Researchers are also questioning the conventional treatments of prostate cancer, which include surgical removal of the prostate gland and radiotherapy, as they may not be necessary for most men. Your diet can greatly impact your prostate health and help prevent enlarged prostate and prostate cancer. Ideally, you’ll want to eat as much organic (preferably raw) food as possible, and limit sugar/fructose and grains from your diet. Highly processed or charcoaled meats, pasteurized dairy products, and transfats correlate with an increased risk for prostate cancer and should also be avoided]

Help Me Stop it - The CDC has reported that 41 percent of adolescents, ages 12-15, have this disease, a clear sign of overexposure to this invisible toxin. And yet they are trying to force more of it onto us. Use these clever techniques to strike back.
> [According to the CDC, 41 percent of American teenagers have dental fluorosis, a clear sign of overexposure to fluoride. To end water fluoridation in your community, first educate yourself about fluoridation; stay informed, and spread the word. Then, take more decisive action by organizing your own local campaign.]
* Fluoride is Dangerous, But This Toxin (in Your Water Supply) May be Far Worse
42 US states (and 31 of the 35 cities tested) have this dangerous carcinogen (linked to lung cancer, damage of the respiratory tract, eyes and skin) lurking in their tap water - does yours? Here’s how to get it out of your water supply in a matter of minutes.

* 5 Grams Daily of This REVERSED Severe Radiation Poisoning in Chernobyl Children
This amazing anti-aging super-food can reverse severe radioactive poisoning. Just 5 grams/day reversed severe radiation illnesses in Chernobyl children. Dangerously low (leukemia-like) white blood counts of 1,000 rebounded to 3,000 in just 20 days... urine radioactive levels fell by 50%... livers regenerated, and more. There's only one caveat.
> [Many studies have found that Spirulina can serve as a "radiation shield," helping protect your thyroid gland, strengthen your immune system and blood, protect your kidneys, and bind to heavy radioactive isotopes so they can be more quickly eliminated from your body. While spirulina is an excellent source of nutrition, you must be very careful about its source, since it can be contaminated with heavy metals and other environmental pollutants.]
* A Godsend for Arthritis Sufferers - May Reduce Pain by a Whopping 62%
Billed the leading polyphenol-rich beverage in a 2008 study, with potency at least 20% greater than all others - beating 3 popular top contenders. New study shows it can offer a 62% improvement against RA pain. But here's the caveat... Guidelines for using it effectively, or use this alternative instead.
> [Pomegranates or pomegranate extract may help reduce joint pain and decrease inflammation in arthritis sufferers, according to recent study. Other antioxidant-rich sources that will not promote insulin resistance like fruit and fruit juices do include most vegetables. An overall better alternative would therefore be to juice vegetables instead.]

Research shows this "safe" (and popular) substance can destroy up to 50% of your beneficial gut flora - and more closely resembles DDT once the manufacturing process is completed. If you have any of these mystery symptoms, stop using it now.
> [Inflammatory bowel disease—an autoimmune disease that can have serious health consequences—may be caused or exacerbated by the regular consumption of the popular artificial sweetener Splenda, as it inactivates digestive enzymes and alters gut barrier function. Previous research also found that sucralose can destroy up to 50 percent of your beneficial gut flora, and increases pH level in your intestines.]
* If Your Protein Supplement Contains This - Throw it in the Trash
It's nothing more than garbage with a fancy label - often drenched with chemical residues that can cause skin burns, erode your teeth and damage your respiratory tract. Protein manufacturers are major sponsors to magazines - so you won't see this anywhere else.
> [Native casein, found in whole raw milk, is one of the best proteins for your muscles. All caseinates are ultra-thermolyzed and thus present a serious health risk, as they are putrid proteins that are more dangerous than trans fats. Consumption of thermolyzed casein has been linked to increased incidence of colonic tumors and cancer.Avoid dietary products containing casein hydrolystates. Read the labels of sports drinks, ready-made protein drinks, protein powders and protein bars.]

This "new" way of eating that's making headlines lets you shed unwanted pounds without hunger and at the same time, helps you lower high blood pressure too. Participants in this study even enjoyed a 30 point drop in cholesterol in just two weeks - far faster than any statin drug!
> [By eating foods that are concordant with your genetic ancestry, you can avoid many of the diseases associated with our modern diet, including diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Such a diet focuses primarily on a wide variety of raw, whole vegetables, fruits, nuts, roots and meat. Your body is also genetically “wired” to move like a hunter-gatherer, which includes extensive walking with regular lifting and short bursts of high-intensity activities.]
* The Science is Practically Screaming... Don't Make This Trendy Fat Mistake
Do you still believe this myth about oils that's now been proven false? They said it slashes cardiovascular risk, but human trials conclusively refute it. Instead, it spikes your cancer risk in just 5 years, and raises your heart disease risk. Why are you still consuming this dangerous oil?
> [Most people consume far too many omega-6 fats, as in vegetable oils, which promotes the ongoing inflammation underlying most chronic diseases seen today. Omega-3 fats have been shown to decrease inflammation, reduce your risk for coronary artery disease and others, and reduce your overall risk of dying.]

What's worse, you probably think the toxin it contains is good for you. However, it originally came from the atomic bomb industry in what is one of the grandest public health frauds in US history.
> [Originally, the fluoride used to fluoridate water supplies came from the aluminum and atomic bomb industries. A couple of years later, they switched to an even more hazardous waste product: hydrofluorosilicic acid from the phosphate fertilizer industry. TWO studies have finally dealt with the continued use of hydrofluorosilicic acid, and found it increases lead accumulation in blood up to seven times. It also increases lead absorption in bone, teeth and other calcium-rich tissues.]

> [The “gold standard” of scientific reviews has repeatedly found that there is little or no evidence backing flu vaccines as an effective flu prevention strategy. Evidence is mounting in support of vitamin D as a potent cold and flu prevention strategy. Optimizing your vitamin D levels through regular sun exposure is preferred, as it imparts health benefits beyond what you can get from oral vitamin D supplements.

We saw it happen in the U.S. starting right after 1988 and a few years later we saw it happen again, but this time overseas in the early 1990s. Both spikes in the rate of autism may have been triggered by the same cause that can potentially impact early neural development and "fundamentally change" how the immune system functions.
> [The first conjugate vaccine, against Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), was approved for use in the U.S. in 1988, which coincides with a marked increase in reported prevalence of autism spectrum disorders among American children. This could be a major cause, but may not be the only one.]

Some antioxidants are unique to mushrooms, such as ergothioneine, which is now starting to be recognized as a 'master antioxidant'. Whole organic mushrooms and whole food-derived mushroom supplements offer potent immune-boosting benefits.

The Surprising Cause of Melanoma (And No, it's Not Too Much Sun)
Research is uncovering fascinating theories behind the recent epidemic of the deadliest form of skin cancer, melanoma. What's more, the rise is only being seen in indoor workers. Especially if you work indoors, find out how to protect yourself and even cut your overall cancer risk by as much as 60%.
> [The rising rates of melanoma documented over the last three decades are not due to sun exposure as often stated; researchers instead believe they are due to an increase in diagnoses of non-cancerous lesions classified, misleadingly, as “stage 1 melanoma”. Exposure to sunlight, particularly UVB, is protective against melanoma -- or rather, the vitamin D your body produces in response to UVB radiation is protective. Optimizing your vitamin D levels through proper sun exposure or use of a safe tanning bed can reduce your risk of skin cancer and as many as 16 different types of cancer. The sun is your best source of vitamin D because when you expose your skin to sunshine, your skin synthesizes vitamin D3 sulfate. This form of vitamin D is water-soluble and can travel freely in your bloodstream, unlike oral vitamin D3 supplements]

How to Get Your Vitamin D Within to Healthy Ranges
Are you ready to take advantage of all the benefits vitamin D has to offer? Optimizing your levels is simpler than you might think.
> [Vitamin D from sun exposure is the BEST way to optimize your vitamin D levels; exposing at mid-day a large amount of your skin until it turns the lightest shade of pink is typically necessary to achieve adequate vitamin D production. If sun exposure is not an option, a safe tanning bed (with electronic ballasts rather than magnetic ballasts, to avoid unnecessary exposure to EMF fields) can be used. As a last resort, a vitamin D3 supplement can be taken orally, but the average adult needs to take 8,000 IU's of vitamin D per day in order to elevate their levels above 40 ng/ml, the absolute minimum for disease prevention.]

Death in Days: Beware of This Bacteria
Inhaling these deadly spores can cause overwhelming infection that can be lethal in as little as 2-7 days. It is, however, very responsive to this. And if it's administered before you become symptomatic, it tends to be 100% effective.
> [Inhaled spores can cause overwhelming infection, and can be lethal in as little as two to seven days. It is, however, very responsive to antibiotics, and if antibiotics are administered before you become symptomatic, they tend to be 100 percent effective. Dr. Nass published a paper that dissected the Rhodesian epidemic, which she found was likely due to biological warfare. That paper also showed how you could look at different aspects of an epidemic to determine whether it was natural or not. The threat of bioweapons can easily be manufactured for financial gain using the Problem-Reaction-Solution process. The bizarre anthrax letters incident 10 years ago boosted biodefense budget by $60 billion dollars, and the anthrax vaccine maker received a $1.4 billion contract for vaccines for public use. This contract was recently renewed to the tune of $1.25 billion dollars. A law indemnifying vaccine makers from liability for injuries due to pandemic vaccines increase the risk of serious side effects from those vaccines, as it creates a negative incentive to not perform rigorous safety studies.]

> [Beware of the “100% Natural” label on any food, as it does NOT guarantee that the product is natural, or free of toxic pesticides, carcinogenic fumigants and solvents, or genetically modified ingredients. The only label that can usually give you that peace of mind is the “USDA Certified 100% Organic” label.
