California Earthquake Ripped a Huge Crack in the Earth That Can Be Seen From Space

By Elias Marat

Not only did Southern California’s magnitude 7.1 earthquake rock the homes of millions of residents on Friday, but it also ripped a massive new crack into the landscape.

Residents of the small desert town of Ridgecrest suffered the worst of the largest quake to hit the Golden State in over two decades, sending residents into a panic on Friday less than two days after a 6.4 earthquake shook the same area.

It wasn’t long before local residents saw that the topography of the region had also been altered in a big way...

USDA Suspends Honeybee Research Despite Rapid Decline of Bee Populations

By Elias Marat

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has suspended its annual surveys of the honeybee population as the federal agency increasingly turns toward representing big agricultural interests rather than regulating them.

Citing the need for budget cuts, the Trump administration’s suspension of the Honey Bee Colonies report will mean that researchers and the honey bee industry will lose a crucial tool to understanding the precipitous decline of honeybee populations since 2006...

Government’s Own Pro-vaccine Medical Expert Admits There is a Vaccine-Autism Link That is Being Covered Up

The physician, Dr. Andrew Zimmerman, goes on to say that the government went on to misrepresent his opinion in vaccine court and cover up what he had told them.

The story is so important that it triggered a wave of vaccine industry propaganda. There was an organized effort to falsely claim that the Dr. Zimmerman is somehow “anti-vaccine” or, perhaps, no longer of sound mind.

What is Monsanto Doing in Puerto Rico?

By AJ+

All of the soybean and cotton seeds that Monsanto sends to farmers around the world start in Puerto Rico.

Dena Takruri gets rare access inside Monsanto’s Puerto Rico operation, where they get huge tax breaks to test and grow GMO seeds.

Meanwhile, thousands of plaintiffs across the U.S. are suing the corporation, claiming that its weedkiller Roundup has caused cancer. In Puerto Rico, locals are blaming Monsanto for getting them sick.

Deadly pesticide which destroys bee populations also affects damselflies as the EU ban on neonicotinoid scourge fails to protect the insects

Damselfly populations are being harmed by insecticides as researchers find the wildlife scourge of neonicotinoids continues to grow.

Some chemicals in this group have already been banned by the EU but thiacloprid is still in widespread use.

Similar chemicals in the neonicotinoid family have already been tied to severe decline in bee populations and now it appears the damage is more widespread.

The team exposed caged and free-flying damselflies to realistic concentrations of the chemical in test ditches and found infected animals ate less, were less active and had a slowed reproductive growth rate.

It was previously thought to only affect insects that eat the treated crop but Dutch scientists have found it has wider-reaching implications for various pollinators as well.

41 Inconvenient Truths on the “New Energy Economy”

By Mark P. Mills

A week doesn’t pass without a mayor, governor, policymaker or pundit joining the rush to demand, or predict, an energy future that is entirely based on wind/solar and batteries, freed from the “burden” of the hydrocarbons that have fueled societies for centuries.

Regardless of one’s opinion about whether, or why, an energy “transformation” is called for, the physics and economics of energy combined with scale realities make it clear that there is no possibility of anything resembling a radically “new energy economy” in the foreseeable future...

Doctor Fined $100,000 for ‘Anti-Vax’ Social Media Posts

A Canadian medical committee has ordered a chiropractor to pay $100,000 for sharing “anti-vaccine” views on social media.

The ruling, publicized Thursday, orders Dr. Dena Churchill of Halifax to pay the Nova Scotia College of Chiropractors for “professional misconduct” after she shared “her personal views that vaccinations could be harmful.”

“Dr. Churchill’s conduct brought the profession of chiropractic into disrepute,” the committee wrote.

The college maintained social media posts Dr. Churchill made in 2018 were an “egregious breach” of the national chiropractic association’s guidelines, which reportedly order chiropractors “not to discuss vaccines in any capacity,” according to the CBC.

Bladder cancer destroyed by the common cold virus, researchers say

Scientists from the University of Surrey and Royal Surrey County Hospital took a naturally-occurring strain of the common cold, coxsackievirus (CVA21), and used it on 15 cancer patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). The disease is the 10th most common cancer in the UK.

The patients were given CVA21 through a catheter in their bladders a week before they were scheduled to undergo surgery to remove their tumors.

Examining the samples after surgery, the scientists could see that the virus only targeted the cancerous cells, infecting them and then replicating itself, causing the cancer cells to rupture and die. Urine samples taken during the trial showed ‘shedding’ from the virus, which demonstrates that the replicated virus continued to target and attack other cancerous cells in the body.

The Steamboat Geyser in Yellowstone National Park is approaching a record number of eruptions

The world's tallest active geyser -- whose major eruptions shoot water more than 300 feet into the air -- is known to be unpredictable. But if there was ever a year to witness Steamboat's spectacular surge of water, this might be it.

We're just over halfway through 2019 and the Steamboat Geyser has already erupted 25 times, according to the US Geological Survey. That puts it on track to surpass last year's record of 32 eruptions -- the largest number ever recorded in a year. The record before that was 29 eruptions in 1964.

The Steamboat Geyser erupted seven times just last month alone, the USGS said. June's outbursts, which occurred on the 1st, 7th, 12th, 15th, 19th, 23rd, and 28th, also smashed the record for the shortest interval between eruptions -- just over three days.

Facebook “Fact-Checker” Misinforms Users about Vaccine Safety

Those in the mainstream discourse calling for efforts to combat misinformation about vaccines actually have no problem at all with misinformation. Transparently, what they instead have a problem with is any information that might lead parents to conclude that strictly complying with the routine childhood vaccine schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) might not be in the best interests of their child. They have no problem with lies about vaccine safety and effectiveness as long as it’s intended to persuade parents to vaccinate their children.

Some Like It Hot: Study Finds Chili Peppers May Slow Lung Cancer Development

By John Anderer

Spicy food isn’t for everyone. Some people love a little danger with their dinner, while others prefer to play it safe and avoid fiery ingredients like chili peppers. However, a new study finds that chili peppers may have a much more important benefit than making your dinner taste better: the ability to fight lung cancer.

They Couldn’t Ban Kratom, So Now the Feds Are Trying to Stop the Source

By Jake Anderson

Despite the fact that it’s been used by indigenous people for generations, kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) was relatively unknown to a critical mass of Americans until 2016, when suddenly the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) took an aggressive interest in making the Southeast Asian plant a scheduled drug.

Led by then-Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, the FDA took up the mantle and attempted to restrict kratom via aggressive regulations. While the federal government continues to misrepresent the science behind kratom research, the DEA is not likely to recommend criminal scheduling on kratom until newly commissioned studies are completed, which will likely be several years from now...

Summertime should be a carefree time of year as we head out on vacation, go to the beach, or hike in the woods. We shouldn’t have to worry about the products that we use or the environmental toxins that might be hanging around. Unfortunately, in today’s world, our children’s bodies are getting bombarded with neurotoxins and cancer-causing chemicals at every turn. If we compare total body burden to a container, we can only fill it to capacity. Anything above capacity causes spillover or, in other words, allergy symptoms and ultimately sickness.

Large-Scale Study Shows Spending At Least 2 Hours a Week in Nature “Crucial” to Health and Wellbeing

By Matt Agorist

A new large-scale study was published in Scientific Reports earlier this month which showed that spending at least two hours a week in nature is key to promoting health and wellbeing. The study was funded by the National Institute for Health Research and led by the University of Exeter in the UK.

The study found that those who spend at least 120 minutes a week are significantly more likely to report good health and higher psychological wellbeing than those who don’t visit nature at all during the week. The two-hour mark was substantial in the study as researchers noted that spending less than this amount of time had no such benefits...

Is Type 1 diabetes a symptom of a virus in the gut?

For over a million Americans, type 1 diabetes is a fact of life. Type 1 diabetes, which is also sometimes called “insulin-dependent diabetes,” can strike anyone, at any age — seemingly, without warning. In the United States, 40,000 new cases of type 1 diabetes are diagnosed every year. But new research shows that the occurrence of type 1 diabetes may not be as random as it seems. Scientists from Columbia University say that certain viruses that linger in the gut could predispose children to develop type 1 diabetes.

This shocking new research adds to a growing body of evidence that viral exposure can influence diabetes risk — and specifically, that intestinal microbial populations are incredibly influential in the onset of disease.

Sightseeing with a side of radiation: Buckets of radioactive uranium ore found at Grand Canyon National Museum; experts say there’s no cause for concern

It was recently revealed that bucketloads of uranium ore were found sitting near a taxidermy exhibit at the museum at Grand Canyon National Park. The three five-gallon buckets looked a bit like paint buckets that someone might have forgotten to put away, but they didn’t sit there for a weekend or a couple months – they were there for almost 20 years, exposing countless people to radiation.

It was the teen-aged son of a park employee who was exploring the area with a Geiger counter who made the concerning discovery. When his counter spiked near the buckets, the uranium inside was discovered. One of the containers was so overloaded that it could not even close all the way.

Deep-sea mining to turn oceans into ‘new industrial frontier’

The world’s oceans are facing a “new industrial frontier” from a fledgling deep-sea mining industry as companies line up to extract metals and minerals from some of the most important ecosystems on the planet, a report has found.

The study by Greenpeace revealed that although no mining had started on the ocean floor, 29 exploration licences had been issued covering an area five times bigger than the UK. Environmentalists said the proposed mining would threaten not only crucial ecosystems but the global fight against climate breakdown.

Louisa Casson, an ocean campaigner at Greenpeace, said: “The health of our oceans is closely linked to our own survival. Unless we act now to protect them, deep-sea mining could have devastating consequences for marine life and humankind.”
