Conspiracy Theories - Photo by Philip Jackson

Do you believe in any “health conspiracy theories”?  Do you believe that there are “natural cures” for diseases that the medical establishment is not telling you about?  Do you believe that vaccines, cell phones or the fluoride in the water can have a harmful impact on the health of your family?  If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are not alone.  According to one recent survey, approximately half of all Americans believe in at least one “medical conspiracy theory”.  Thanks to the Internet, more people than ever are questioning the established dogma of the medical community.  As a result, more people are starting to make their own health decisions, and this has resulted in quite a backlash from the medical establishment.  They are spending a lot of time, effort and money to combat these “health conspiracy theories”, but as you will see below, quite a few of them have turned out to be real.

But before we get to that, I wanted to share with you some of the specific results of the survey that I mentioned above.  The following comes from USA Today

The online survey of 1,351 adults found:

• 37% agree the Food and Drug Administration is keeping “natural cures for cancer and other diseases” away from the public because of “pressure from drug companies.”
• 20% believe health officials are hiding evidence that cellphones cause cancer.
• 20% believe doctors and health officials push child vaccines even though they “know these vaccines cause autism and other psychological disorders.”
• Smaller numbers endorse theories involving fluoride, genetically modified foods and the deliberate infection of African Americans with HIV.
• 49% believe at least one of the theories and 18% believe at least three.

Oh my.

So there are actually Americans that believe that “natural cures” exist and that vaccines and fluoride might have some very harmful side effects?

Oh the horror!

Of course I am being facetious.  The truth is that it is wonderful that people are starting to research these things for themselves.

The medical community has a huge incentive to protect their turf.  If the U.S. health care system was a separate nation, it would be the 6th largest economy on the entire planet.  Hundreds of billions of dollars a year are at stake, and so it is very important that they maintain control over what people believe about their health.

Fortunately, the truth is starting to get out there.  The following are 10 health conspiracy theories that turned out to be real…

Unvaccinated Children Are Far Healthier Than Vaccinated Children

Evidence continues to mount that vaccines can have some very harmful side effects – especially for children.

For example, a study that was conducted in New Zealand discovered that unvaccinated children are generally much healthier than vaccinated children…

A study from the 1990s has come to light, proving that compared to unvaccinated children, vaccinated children were more likely to suffer from asthma, eczema, ear infections, hyperactivity and many other chronic conditions. Furthermore, the study identified that there was a ten-fold increase in the incidence of tonsillitis in the children who were vaccinated, and a total lack tonsillectomy operations among the children who were unvaccinated.

And a similar study that was conducted in Germany came up with similar results…

Asthma, hay fever and neurodermatitis are seen very frequently today. A recent German study with 17461 children between 0-17 years of age (KIGGS) showed that 4.7% of these children suffer from asthma, 10.7% of these children from hay fever and 13.2% from neurodermatitis. These numbers differ in western countries, i.e. the prevalence of asthma among children in the US is 6% whereas it is 14-16% in Australia (Australia’s Health 2004, AIHW).

The prevalence of asthma among unvaccinated children in our study is around 2.5%, hay fever, 3%, and neurodermatitis, 7%. According to the KIGGS study more than 40% of children between the ages of 3 and 17 years were sensitized against at least one allergen tested (20 common allergens were tested) and 22.9% had an allergic disease. Although we did not perform a blood test, around 10% stated that their children had an allergy.

Most parents don’t realize this, but when you allow vaccines to be injected into your children, they are getting all kinds of nasty things injected directly into their bloodstreams where there is no filter.

That is why so many people keep screaming about “the mercury in the vaccines”.  The truth is that it can cause brain damage

“In 1977, a Russian study found that adults exposed to ethylmercury, the form of mercury in thimerosal, suffered brain damage years later. Studies on thimerosal poisoning also describe tubular necrosis and nervous system injury, including obtundation, coma and death. As a result of these findings, Russia banned thimerosal from children’s vaccines in 1980. Denmark, Austria, Japan, Great Britain and all the Scandinavian countries have also banned the preservative

So why is thimerosal still found in so many vaccines in the United States?

Today, in some areas of the nation more than 30 vaccines are being given to young children before the age of 3.

30 vaccines.

That is utter insanity.

The Use Of Antidepressants By Mothers Has Been Scientifically Linked To Autism In Their Babies

When women take things when they are pregnant, it can have a very serious impact on their unborn children.

For example, even CNN is now reporting on the link between taking antidepressants during pregnancy and autism…

Children whose mothers take Zoloft, Prozac, or similar antidepressants during pregnancy are twice as likely as other children to have a diagnosis of autism or a related disorder, according to a small new study, the first to examine the relationship between antidepressants and autism risk.

This class of antidepressants, known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), may be especially risky early on in a pregnancy, the study suggests. Children who were exposed to the drugs during the first trimester were nearly four times as likely to develop an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) compared with unexposed children, according to the study, which appears in the Archives of General Psychiatry.

The Fluoride In Our Water Is Really Bad For Us

It just isn’t “crazies on the Internet” that are warning about the fluoride in the water anymore.

These days, even Harvard is publishing studies about the harmful effects of fluoride…

A newly published study in Harvard’s The Lancet weighs in on the toxins causing autism and ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder). Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) say that along with these numerous environmental toxins, fluoridated water is adding to the higher incident of both cognitive and behavioral disorders.

But “cognitive and behavioral disorders” are far from the only things that we have to worry about when it comes to fluoride.  Just consider the following

Even small amounts of fluoride consumed from tap water can damage your bones, teeth, brain, disrupt your thyroid function, lower IQ and/or cause cancer, according to evidence revealed in a groundbreaking 2006 National Research Council (NRC) fluoride report produced by a panel of experts who reviewed hundreds of published fluoride studies.

Do you want any of those things to happen to you?

If not, you might want to find out if there is fluoride in the water that you are drinking.

The Natural Health and Longevity Resource Center has published a list of 10 of the most significant health problems that scientific studies have discovered that fluoride causes…

1. Fluoride exposure disrupts the synthesis of collagen and leads to the breakdown of collagen in bone, tendon, muscle, skin, cartilage, lungs, kidney and trachea.

2. Fluoride stimulates granule formation and oxygen consumption in white blood cells, but inhibits these processes when the white blood cell is challenged by a foreign agent in the blood.

3. Fluoride depletes the energy reserves and the ability of white blood cells to properly destroy foreign agents by the process of phagocytosis. As little as 0.2 ppm fluoride stimulates superoxide production in resting white blood cells, virtually abolishing phagocytosis. Even micro-molar amounts of fluoride, below 1 ppm, may seriously depress the ability of white blood cells to destroy pathogenic agents.

4. Fluoride confuses the immune system and causes it to attack the body’s own tissues, and increases the tumor growth rate in cancer prone individuals.

5. Fluoride inhibits antibody formation in the blood.

6. Fluoride depresses thyroid activity.

7. Fluorides have a disruptive effect on various tissues in the body.

8. Fluoride promotes development of bone cancer.

9. Fluorides cause premature aging of the human body.

10. Fluoride ingestion from mouth rinses and dentifrices in children is extremely hazardous to biological development, life span and general health.

Taking Vitamins And Supplements Can Help Cure Disease

Every few months, there is an article in the mainstream media that tries to convince us “that vitamins don’t work”.

But scientific study after scientific study has shown that they do work.

The following is an excerpt from an outstanding article by Dr. Lee Hieb

Folate supplementation reduces the risk of colorecral adenomas, the precursor lesion to colorectal cancer (“Public Health Nutrition”)

Vitamin D intake reduces lung cancer in women (“American Journal of Clinical Nutrition”)

500 mg of vitamin B12, 800 mcg of folic acid and 20 mg of B6 slowed shrinkage of the whole brain volume by 50 percent over two years. In a follow up in 2013, the gray matter area of the brain associated with Alzheimer’s had shrinkage reduced up to seven fold on the vitamin combination (“PNAS online”)

… but vitamins “don’t work.”

CoQ10 protects against beta-amyloid induced mitochondrial malfunction (“Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry”)

L-Carnitine has been shown to prevent the damaging effects of statins on the mitochondria (“Frontiers in Physiology”)

Calcium, vitamin D, inulin and soy isoflavones improves bone metabolism in post-menopausal women (“Aging Clinical and Experimental Research”)

Higher serum folate levels were correlated with higher cognitive test scores in children (“Nutrition”)

… but vitamins “don’t work.”

The Overprescription Of Antibiotics Is Causing The Rise Of Antibiotic-Resistant “Superbugs”

These days, doctors are prescribing antibiotics at the drop of a hat.

For a long time that worked, but now we are seeing the rise of a new generation of “superbugs” that are totally resistant to antibiotics.

The reason that this is a problem is that we don’t have anything that can fight these new superbugs.

It has become such a problem that now even the CDC is warning about it…

The overuse of antibiotics for patients in U.S. hospitals is contributing to the rise of so-called superbugs, according to a new study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“This is a real public threat,” said Dr. Arjun Srinivasan, associate director for health care-associated infection prevention programs at the CDC, who spoke to CNBC by phone.

The dangers from overprescribing antibiotics in hospitals are twofold, Srinivasan explained. First, patients may not need them and could suffer side effects. More important, however, is the danger of creating drug-resistant bacteria, known as superbugs, that are becoming increasingly commonplace.

For much, much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “Scientists: We Can’t Do Anything About The Antibiotic-Resistant Superbugs That Will Soon Kill Millions Of Us“.

Hospitals Are Massively Overcharging Their Patients

For a long time, it has been an open secret that hospital bills contain absolutely outrageous overcharges.

But now even the mainstream media is admitting this.  For example, the following is an excerpt from a recent article in the New York Times

Luckily for anyone who has ever needed an IV bag to replenish lost fluids or to receive medication, it is also one of the least expensive. The average manufacturer’s price, according to government data, has fluctuated in recent years from 44 cents to $1.

Yet there is nothing either cheap or simple about its ultimate cost, as I learned when I tried to trace the commercial path of IV bags from the factory to the veins of more than 100 patients struck by a May 2012 outbreak of food poisoning in upstate New York.

Some of the patients’ bills would later include markups of 100 to 200 times the manufacturer’s price, not counting separate charges for “IV administration.” And on other bills, a bundled charge for “IV therapy” was almost 1,000 times the official cost of the solution.

And below, I have posted a short excerpt from a Time Magazine article.  One man that had been diagnosed with cancer accumulated nearly a million dollars in bills at one California hospital before he finally died…

By the time Steven D. died at his home in Northern California the following November, he had lived for an additional 11 months. And Alice had collected bills totaling $902,452. The family’s first bill — for $348,000 — which arrived when Steven got home from the Seton Medical Center in Daly City, Calif., was full of all the usual chargemaster profit grabs: $18 each for 88 diabetes-test strips that Amazon sells in boxes of 50 for $27.85; $24 each for 19 niacin pills that are sold in drugstores for about a nickel apiece. There were also four boxes of sterile gauze pads for $77 each. None of that was considered part of what was provided in return for Seton’s facility charge for the intensive-care unit for two days at $13,225 a day, 12 days in the critical unit at $7,315 a day and one day in a standard room (all of which totaled $120,116 over 15 days). There was also $20,886 for CT scans and $24,251 for lab work.

Thanks To The Big Pharmaceutical Companies, Americans Are The Most Drugged Up People On The Face Of The Earth

There is nobody on the planet that is more drugged up than the American people are.

And I am not talking about illegal drugs.

I am talking about legal drugs.

Just consider these statistics…

#1 An astounding 70 million Americans are taking legal mind-altering drugs right now.

#2 According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, doctors wrote more than 250 million prescriptions for antidepressants during 2010.

#3 According to a study conducted by the Mayo Clinic, nearly 70 percent of all Americans are on at least one prescription drug.  An astounding 20 percent of all Americans are on at least five prescription drugs.

#4 Americans spent more than 280 billion dollars on prescription drugs during 2013.

#5 According to the CDC, approximately 9 out of every 10 Americans that are at least 60 years old say that they have taken at least one prescription drug within the last month.

You can find the rest of this list in my previous article entitled “19 Statistics About The Drugging Of America That Are Almost Too Crazy To Believe“.

And the truth is that all of this drug pushing is actually killing people.  The following is a brief excerpt from a Vanity Fair article entitled “Deadly Medicine“…

Prescription drugs kill some 200,000 Americans every year. Will that number go up, now that most clinical trials are conducted overseas—on sick Russians, homeless Poles, and slum-dwelling Chinese—in places where regulation is virtually nonexistent, the F.D.A. doesn’t reach, and “mistakes” can end up in pauper’s graves?

Caffeine Addiction Is Real And It Can Be Incredibly Difficult To Break

If you have ever been addicted to coffee or soda, you probably know how hard it can be to try to give it up for even a few days.

It has been estimated that up to 90 percent of all Americans consume beverages that contain caffeine, and most people never stop to think about how it might affect them in the long run.

Well, experts are now openly acknowledging that we have a major caffeine addiction problem on our hands.  The following is an excerpt from a recent article in the San Francisco Chronicle

Cardiologists have told patients to cut back on coffee because they’re having heart palpitations, and psychologists have warned people that their caffeine habit may be adding to their anxiety problems. Yet some people have trouble letting go of the caffeine – or even cutting back – because it feels like a necessity.

Even sleep experts say patients will complain of insomnia but shudder at the idea of quitting caffeine.

“There are people who have chronic reflux, stomach acid pain, bleeding, hemorrhoids – all because of coffee. They’re suffering a lot,” said Keith Humphreys, a Stanford addiction expert. “But they try and they fail to stop.”

Eating Pork Is Really Bad For You

Americans have a love affair with pork.  We consume massive amounts of bacon, ham, sausage, pepperoni, etc.

But is that actually healthy for us?

Most people have never stopped to consider this, but they should.  The following is an excerpt from a paper entitled “The Adverse Influence Of Pork Consumption On Health” by Professor Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg…

The fact that pork causes stress and gives rise to poisoning is known. It is obvious that this does not only apply to preparations of fresh pork such as cold cuts, knuckles, feet, ribs and cutlets, etc., but also to cured meats (ham, bacon, etc.) and to smoked meats prepared for sausages.

Consumption of freshly killed pork products causes acute responses, such as inflammations of the appendix and gall bladder, biliary colics, acute intestinal catarrh, gastroenteritis with typhoid and paratyphoid symptoms, as well as acute eczema, carbuncles, sudoriparous abscesses, and others. These symptoms can be observed after consuming sausage meats (including salami which contains pieces of bacon in the form of fat).

And here are some more reasons why you should think twice about eating pork…

  • A pig is a real garbage gut. It will eat anything including urine, excrement, dirt, decaying animal flesh, maggots, or decaying vegetables. They will even eat the cancerous growths off other pigs or animals.

  • The meat and fat of a pig absorbs toxins like a sponge. Their meat can be 30 times more toxic than beef or venison.

  • When eating beef or venison, it takes 8 to 9 hours to digest the meat so what little toxins are in the meat are slowly put into our system and can be filtered by the liver. But when pork is eaten, it takes only 4 hours to digest the meat. We thus get a much higher level of toxins within a shorter time.

  • Unlike other mammals, a pig does not sweat or perspire. Perspiration is a means by which toxins are removed from the body. Since a pig does not sweat, the toxins remain within its body and in the meat.

  • Pigs and swine are so poisonous that you can hardly kill them with strychnine or other poisons. Farmers will often pen up pigs within a rattlesnake nest because the pigs will eat the snakes, and if bitten they will not be harmed by the venom.

  • When a pig is butchered, worms and insects take to its flesh sooner and faster than to other animal’s flesh. In a few days the swine flesh is full of worms.

  • Swine and pigs have over a dozen parasites within them, such as tapeworms, flukes, worms, and trichinae. There is no safe temperature at which pork can be cooked to ensure that all these parasites, their cysts, and eggs will be killed.

  • Pig meat has twice as much fat as beef. A three-ounce T-bone steak contains 8.5 grams of fat; a three-ounce pork chop contains 18 grams of fat. A three-ounce beef rib has 11.1 grams of fat; a three-ounce pork spare rib has 23.2 grams of fat.

  • Cows have a complex digestive system, having four stomachs. It thus takes over 24 hours to digest their vegetarian diet causing its food to be purified of toxins. In contrast, the swine’s one stomach takes only about four hours to digest its foul diet, turning its toxic food into flesh.

  • The swine carries about 30 diseases which can be easily passed to humans. This is why God commanded that we are not even to touch their carcass. (Leviticus 11:8).

  • The trichinae worm of the swine is microscopically small, and once ingested can lodge itself in our intestines, muscles, spinal cord or the brain. This results in the disease trichinosis. The symptoms are sometimes lacking, but when present they are mistaken for other diseases, such as typhoid, arthritis, rheumatism, gastritis, MS, meningitis, gall bladder trouble, or acute alcoholism.

If You Are Eating Seafood Caught In The Pacific Ocean, There Is A Very Good Chance That It Is Polluted With Nuclear Radiation From Fukushima

Are you sure that the fish, shrimp and other seafood that you are eating are safe?

Most people are aware that the destroyed nuclear facility at Fukushima is still releasing massive amounts of nuclear radiation into the Pacific Ocean, but most people don’t stop to think that it could be getting into their food.

One fish that was recently caught off the coast of the Fukushima prefecture was discovered to have 124 times the safe level of radioactive cesium.

But we don’t have to worry about that in North America, do we?

Actually, the evidence is starting to mount that we should be taking a closer look at our seafood.  The following are just a few facts from one of my previous articles entitled “36 Signs The Media Is Lying To You About How Radiation From Fukushima Is Affecting The West Coast“…

The population of sockeye salmon along the coastlines of Alaska is at a “historic low”.

Something is causing Pacific herring to bleed from their gills, bellies and eyeballs.

Experts have found very high levels of cesium-137 in plankton living in the waters of the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and the west coast.

One test in California found that 15 out of 15 Bluefin tuna were contaminated with radiation from Fukushima.

Back in 2012, the Vancouver Sun reported that cesium-137 was being found in a very high percentage of the fish that Japan was selling to Canada…

• 73 percent of the mackerel

• 91 percent of the halibut

• 92 percent of the sardines

• 93 percent of the tuna and eel

• 94 percent of the cod and anchovies

• 100 percent of the carp, seaweed, shark and monkfish

You can read the rest of that article right here.

When it comes to your health, it pays to do your own research and to do your own thinking.

Don’t blindly trust me, your doctor or anyone else.  Look into these things for yourself and come to your own conclusions.

In the end, you will be very happy that you did.

    Simple rule, stop trusting the Government. Your kids are not given vaccines, to make them healthier. They are vaccinated for the same reason, they vaccinate calves. To keep disease down in the heard. You are making your food choices, according to what the Government says is safe? You have got to be kidding. Folks you have got to start making your own decisions.

    The problem is we pay doctors when they do not do the job of making us well. Instead the natural economy of medicine is to make all people into prescription cash cows for life.
    If that statement is true and I think it is, then we are paying these people to maintain us as sick individuals rather than get us well where we are unprofitable to these same jerks.
    It is a real big money-making industry that includes prescription drug companies, doctors, surgeons, hospitals, and a lot of it is controlled by the dual American Medical Association and the drug companies through the control and intervention of the FDA.
    We, as a people, have spent billions on research to “cure” cancer.
    Same goes for diabetes. The result? We have the worst record of cures in the history of the world for both of those diseases.
    The third is insurance. Health insurance is regulating how a disease may be treated. If it is not the way the insurance industry regulates the “cures” it is financially impossible to get a correct cure. ObamaCare is the tip of the iceberg. It will in the future regulate the “cures” to the point where even if they are using leaches to bleed the patient it is set in stone. Anyone thinking outside of this box to cure disease will be blacklisted or their licenses to practice will be removed. And that is the true horror of the greedy American system of medical care. We pay more for less than anyone else in the entire world.
    The social medicine used throughout the rest of the world is no better. They are all members in good standing of the Hemlock Society of removing sick people rather than curing them. It makes economic sense to kill people rather than cure them in Social Medicine. And they are pretty much immune to mal-practice.
    Someone out there is blowing the whistle on this bunch of devils. There are a lot of deliberate things going on to make people sick and not dead to make them into these cash cows for life.
    Poisoning the water with a slow poison that creates a number of diseases. Flouride has been known to do this since at least the 40s.
    Poison is used to weaken disease and injected into live people with a statistical result that many end up sick for life. Including brain damaged individuals.
    Poisoning the food is number one on their list. They have deliberately mutated wheat so that it causes diabetes in a lot of people. How much wheat is out there? Try all of your pastas, hamburger buns, a lot of carbs, the list is staggering and almost impossible to avoid. Most of our cereals are genetically altered.
    Pigs are so close to human flesh that it takes a microscope and lab tests to tell the difference. No wonder all that filth filters back into the food supply and into us. It is profitable.
    Shrimp, oysters, mussels, clams, are known as filth pond filters and they normall take all the pollution out of our oceans. Unless it is too bad and then they perish.
    The Moses diet in the Bible is the only really true measure of what we should or not eat. Even the Moslems follow that.
    Only the Christians follow a diet that is truely going to kill you slowly someday. I personally think that doctrine needs to go away.
    The only way these people will ever change is to take away the profit from the entire industry UNLESS they actually cure you of diseases and make preventive medicine profitable.

      Regarding the biblical eating of pork: Acts 10: 9-16

      I agree that today’s doctors are not always looking for a cure, but rather a treatment of symptoms. The cure and the elimination of symptoms often look the same, but are not necessarily so. However, if, as you suppose, the cures to things like cancer and diabetes are not being reached due to big pharma, then the same needs to be suspected of the health food industry. We have been told for decades that natural is best, but there is no overwhelming evidence that shows natural cures do work. One can argue that big pharma is covering it up, but the possibility is small that they could cover all of the major players’ results (and the probability of such is even lower).
      There is no question that big pharma wants customers. Look at the amount of money spent on advertising to get you to “ask your doctor if xxxxx is right for you,” but to say that pharmaceuticals do not help is a stretch. They should be thought of only as a part of a total cure or treatment, not THE cure.

    Purge, purge, purge. That is the only way to get out of the Matrix. I have purged myself of coffee recently and now I don’t have to deal with the head ache that would appear one, two, or three days after missing my latte.
    I also don’t have to deal with very poor customer service at monopoly coffee service provider: Starbucks.
    So purging myself of coffee has helped me purge Starbucks from my life.
    Life is much better after the purge.

    The holding tanks of filtered polluted water on the Fukushima Daiichi site have been re-polluted with at least three toxic radionuclides and the mechanic filtering system of the cooling water has been suspended indefinitely due to chronic failure and malfunction. TEPCO’s solution is to dump the entire collection of polluted water into the Pacific Ocean.

    there are many home remedies that work great for all sorts of ailments. MindBodyGreen has some excellent articles and recipes. Right now, I’m really into tumeric infused juices and teas for inflammation and warm lemon tea for balancing ph. Vitamin D3 is a great supplement and kratom is great for natural pain relief.

    I used to work for Lancome and I sold hundreds of dollars worth of skin treatments that were loaded with chemicals and fragrances and none of them worked. I couldn’t use them myself because they made my eyes water and I would break out in a rash. Olive oil with a few drops of lavender is excellent for moisturizing and fine lines. That’s all u need.

    I’ve noticed that trader Joes no longer carries pacific shrimp. I asked them why they don’t carry it anymore and the manager told me the shrimp from that area in the pacific were stunted and not suitable for human consumption and that’s all he knew. Now they have shrimp from Argentina. It isn’t as good and it’s expensive.

    Atlantic cod has literally gone over a cliff so forget that.

    The farmed fish available here has added colors and flavors.

    • Tim


      My local Costco (Greenville, SC) has Atlantic Cod that is delicious and not too expensive. (It’s Kirkland Signature, the store brand.) If you have a Costco in your area, you may want to see if they carry it.

      Vital Choice is a source of safe seafood for those who can afford it. I cannot.

      • Kim

        You’re lucky if u can get it. We haven’t seen Atlantic cod on the west coast in years. We get Alaskan cod out here (which I don’t trust) and a fish similar to cod called tilapia. It’s decent.

        I was at a local market yesterday and saw halibut for $38 a pound and scallops for $36 a pound.

    There’s more medical “conspiracies”.
    Aspartame – artificial sweetener made from feces of genetically modified e-coli bacteria.
    Monsanto/GMO food.
    Toxins and chemical additives in our food and water, like arsenium, pesticides and mind-altering drugs.

    the info regarding pork is outdated and absolute nonsense (trichinae disappeared from the pork industry decades ago)- but please use only organic local grass fed meat of any kind: do NOT trust any meat in the industrial food chain: irrespective of the torture and depravity of the animals treatment (leading to hormal imbalances poisoning the meat) the flesh is laden with gmo and toxic chemicals from what is being fed to those creatures.

    Are those the Norns up front in that photo?

    The Pharmaceutical Companies basically control the Medical Schools. Certainly with the discovery of Antibiotics after WWII – the medical methodology became treatment by prescription. The public has also come to expect that there is a “magic” pill that will cure their disease.

    In regards to so call natural treatments or the use vitamins and supplements – this industry is no better then Big Pharma and is little better then 19th Century snake oil salesmen.

    In Regards to Fluoride – yes its a poison don’t drink it ! In fact don’t drink any municipality tap water. Don’t even trust the bottle water industry that is making a fortune out of your fears. Drink only Distilled water but make sure you get the necessary trace minerals found in water from other sources

    In Regards to Vaccinations – I think the problem has arisen from the practice of giving young children a cocktail of 30 + vaccines all at one time.. There are some vaccines that are very important and have been shown to be extremely low risk – in particular Polio vaccine. This is a must.
    As to Flue vaccines – complete ‘ bull—–t ‘ Waste of time and a huge money maker for Big Pharma

    Conventional medicine still uses the 18th century methods. Poison, slash or burn. No thanks.

    If you are actually worried about flouride and believe the crap on this article, you better stop eating eggs. Flouride naturally occurs in the yolk of eggs. So if even a little is harmful, and you actually believe the complete crap on this page, then you better cut out eggs. What a joke, and I doubt anything else is true on here. Will have to actually look at real science.

    I went to the dirt diet but found it had remains of creatures like bugs
    and animals that had decayed into it. So I tried the water diet but it
    had animal pee in it that had made it’s way to the water tables. I
    couldn’t filter it out. I had to stop wearing clothes because the
    materials and labor all came from countries where they ate meat or had
    terrible civil rights violations. I stopped using a restroom because I
    found out the plumber had shot a bear about to attack a small child. I
    now must live naked on a raft in the middle of the sea and wait to die
    so I don’t harm anything or one …
