TRUTH: Cannabis is in your DNA – watch at REAL.video

What many people don’t realize is that cannabis doesn’t have to be smoked to partake of its many health benefits. Like other forms of natural produce, cannabis is loaded with vital nutrients that help it to thrive.

“Cannabis, when used properly, is as boring as any other vegetable, and just as necessary to your health,” the video explains. “Cannabis is packed with essential nutrients and healing properties when it is fresh and not heated, dried, or aged. When cannabis is fresh, from the plant, it is not a narcotic. It does not make you high.”

As also explained in the video, the presence of cannabis receptors in our cellular system means four things: “our body recognizes cannabis, uses it, needs it, and our health is better when we get it, otherwise those receptors would not be there.”

Paul Offit, MD, Vaccine Authority & Co-inventor, Finally Levels About Vaccinations Being Violent Acts

By Catherine J. Frompovich

If I didn’t have the authentic YouTube video of vaccine-pushing-authority, Dr. Paul Offit, MD, to share with my readers, you probably would think I’ve “gone off my rocker,” especially if I only quoted him and did not have the physical, visual and audio proof of his admitting numerous suppressed deprecating facts about vaccinations, thereby further empowering parents’ valid reasons for NOT vaccinating their beloved children.

Here are some acknowledgements Dr. Offit finally admits to about vaccinations...

Thousands of people reported missing after Hurricane Michael; death toll at 17

Days after powerful Hurricane Michael made landfall Wednesday just north of Mexico Beach, Florida, thousands of people have been informally reported missing to local authorities.

Emergency crews made it their mission Friday to search for people after the Category 4 storm barreled into the Florida Panhandle before making its way to southwest Georgia and South Carolina – while also lashing North Carolina and Virginia. At least 17 people have been killed.

Emergency officials said they received thousands of calls asking about missing people, but with cellphone service out across a wide area, they found it impossible to know who among those unaccounted for was safe but just unable to dial out to friends or family. The Miami Herald reported that thousands of people have been “informally reported missing” to the Red Cross, local authorities and the state.

Outside In: The Trump administration’s plan to remake the Middle East

The only promise that is new about the promised peace plan is the way it will be forced on the Palestinians: no one has promised that the plan itself will be new. With Saudi Arabia and Egypt—the outside—brought onside with the promise of continued military aid despite their crimes against humanity and violations of international law and the Palestinians weakened by being silenced, economically crushed and stripped of any friends to help them, the United States and Israel are now free to attempt to impose a peace plan on the Palestinians.

ANOTHER space telescope has switched itself into 'safe mode': NASA reveals Chandra X-ray Observatory has shut down just a week after Hubble suffered the same fate - but says the timing is 'coincidental'

Both orbiting observatories are old: Hubble is 28, while Chandra is 19. Flight controllers are working to resume operations with both.

NASA says it's coincidental both went 'asleep' within a week of one another.

An astronomer who works on Chandra, Jonathan McDowell of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, tweeted Friday that 'Chandra decided that if Hubble could have a little vacation, it wanted one, too.'

Chemical In Plastic Found In Water Bottles And Till Receipts ‘Raises The Risk Of Premature Birth Sixfold’, Scientists Claim

A chemical found in everyday plastic items could led to a sixfold increase in the risk of a premature baby.

Scientists said bisphenol A – used in containers, some water bottles (though not in single-use water bottles made with flexible plastic packaging), food cans and till receipts – can affect women who come into contact with it before they even conceive.

The creator of GMO potatoes reveals the dangerous truth

During my 26 years as a genetic engineer, I created hundreds of thousands of different GM potatoes at a direct cost of about $50 million. I started my work at universities in Amsterdam and Berkeley, continued at Monsanto, and then worked for many years at J. R. Simplot Company, which is one of the largest potato processors in the world. I had my potatoes tested in greenhouses or the field, but I rarely left the laboratory to visit the farms or experimental stations. Indeed, I believed that my theoretical knowledge about potatoes was sufficient to improve potatoes. This was one of my biggest mistakes.

CBD and Gut Health, An Overview

By Elizabeth Millard

Robust gut health isn’t just about digestion—although it plays a major role. The way your digestion system functions has been linked to an array of physiological processes, including hormone regulation, toxin elimination, defense against bacteria and viruses, cell regeneration, and more.

There’s so much control happening throughout your GI tract, that it’s been called the “second brain,” and when disease, stress, pollutants, or poor nutrition negatively affects that brain, it can have a profound impact on how you operate...

America’s obesity is threatening national security, according to this study

It’s well known at this point that just under 30 percent of Americans ages 17 to 24 ? the prime age to join the Army ? aren’t eligible to join.

But beyond that, almost a third of those who sit down with a recruiter to take the first steps are immediately disqualified.

Why? Because of their weight.

“Out of all the reasons that we have future soldiers disqualify, the largest – 31 percent ? is obesity,” Maj. Gen. Frank Muth, head of Army Recruiting Command, said Wednesday at AUSA’s annual meeting in Washington, D.C.

A freshly published study, “Unhealthy and Unprepared” concludes that America’s rising numbers of overweight youth are going to have real impacts on the military’s ability to maintain effectiveness.

“We’ve got to make sure that message gets out, because our concern is what happens when that percentage that qualify … potentially goes down?” Muth said. “Or if the obesity, if that starts to go up.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Beyond the obesity statistics (and one way to get away from being overweight is sticking completely to a natural diet, free from additives like MSG, which turns on the body's appetite, so that you will eat more), another interesting fact here, is that war is still the only way this country sees as a method of getting what it wants geopolitically.

I used to think that there might have been a day, in times past, when the American government could actually negotiate in good faith, to get what it wanted from other countries; but now, I see that this is no longer the case.

A star is born: Astronomers witness birth of binary star system for 1st time (IMAGE)

A group of astronomers observing the strange quiet death of a massive star, which exploded in a “peculiar” fashion some 920 million light years from Earth, also witnessed the birth of binary star system for the first time.

Astronomers from the California Institute of Technology and Carnegie Science Institute published their findings in the journal Science on Thursday. In the study, they describe the strange event in which the huge star exploded in a surprisingly faint and rapidly fading supernova - in stark contrast to the dramatic bang which exploding stars usually produce.

Turmeric OUTPERFORMS conventional chemotherapy drugs in treating all forms of cancer

Earlier this year, Daily Mail revealed that a 67-year-old woman named Dieneke Ferguson had cured her terminal blood cancer with nothing but a turmeric supplement. Ferguson had all but given up after years of battling her stage-3 multiple myeloma with conventional treatments like chemotherapy. After three grueling rounds of chemo and four stem cell implants failed her, Ferguson turned to a more natural approach.

With just eight grams of curcumin (a compound in turmeric) a day, the pensioner was finally able to fight back. Ferguson completely eliminated the fatal cancer from her body, and is now in good health.

Many people who think they caught the “flu” actually have SALMONELLA or E. coli poisoning

Symptoms of food poisoning and the flu are virtually the same

We’ve all been there. You’re sick and miserable. First you get stomach cramps. Then you start experiencing chills, dehydration, fatigue, fever, sweating, dizziness, bloating, diarrhea, indigestion, nausea, and then comes the relentless vomiting and the intolerable headaches. You’re weak all over. The CDC calls that the flu. The news on TV says “get your flu shot” because the flu is spreading fast this year. Free flu shots are advertised almost everywhere – at schools, at work, at pharmacies, at WalMart. The problem is that not only does the flu shot rarely work and contain dangerous neurotoxins, but you probably don’t even have influenza, because the symptoms of food poisoning are nearly identical.

VIRGIN’S BRANSON HALTS TALKS ON $1 BLN SAUDI INVESTMENT IN SPACE VENTURES

British billionaire Richard Branson said on Thursday that his Virgin Group would suspend its discussions with Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund over a planned $1 billion investment in the group’s space ventures, in light of the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Reuters reports.

“What has reportedly happened in Turkey around the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, if proved true, would clearly change the ability of any of us in the West to do business with the Saudi government,” Branson said in a statement.

Branson also said he would suspend his directorship in two Saudi tourism projects around the Red Sea, citing Khashoggi’s disappearance. Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Branson did the right thing, and I applaud his decision.

But I sincerely wish he had done it for the right reason, and that would be to turn the world's attention to the slaughter of innocents in Yemen, in which the US military and government is aiding and abetting the Saudi military in their war crimes. Warning: very graphic images.

Images: Yemeni children dead and maimed for life, due to Saudi bombings.

Images: Yemeni children, dying of starvation, because of US-enabled Saudi port blockades

What Killed Thousands of Indonesians – The Quake or the Misery?

As I was reading, on board an Air Canada flight from Mexico City to Vancouver, The Globe and Mail coverage of the horrors that have been unraveling for several days on the island of Sulawesi, I felt two powerful and contradictory emotions: I wanted to be there, immediately, ‘on the ground’, in the city of Palu, filming, talking to people, doing everything possible to help… and at the same time, I sensed that I was ‘already there’, so many times before, whenever the nightmares like those in Sulawesi were taking place all over the Indonesian archipelago.

And I wrote about them, I documented them, I was sending warnings, but nothing was done. The government (or I’d rather call it the ‘Indonesian regime’), is expert in hearing nothing and doing nothing, ignoring all frontal criticism. The same goes for the Indonesian elites. They are blind as they are deaf, as long as they can grab, steal and then, do absolutely nothing for the welfare of the Indonesian people.

Doctors In Scotland Are Now Prescribing ‘Nature’ To Their Patients

In an age of technology and constant immersion in the digital sphere, a new initiative in Shetland, Scotland is encouraging individuals suffering from chronic illness to spend more time in nature.

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) has teamed up with the National Health Service in Shetland to promote “Nature Prescriptions.” Doctors in the region can now officially prescribe “nature” to their patients.

According to a statement from the RSPB:

From reducing cardiovascular disease, hypertension, stress levels, rates of aggression, obesity. It can be used when treating Type II diabetes or depression or when recovering from operations, and it has been proven over and over again to provide relief from anxiety. Plus it’s free and easily accessible to all. It makes complete sense to work with the medical profession to connect people with nature.

Father's blindness leads to son's vision for eye disease cure

A University of Auckland bio engineer has received $1 million in funding to follow his dream of curing the disease that left his father blind for 60 years.

Dr Ehsan Vaghefi received the funding from the 2018 round of the Endeavour Fund, New Zealand's largest contestable research fund, for a laser-based imaging device called MyIScope that will be capable of screening for early signs of blindness.

MyIScope was designed to detect eye diseases such as cataracts, pathological myopia and glaucoma in children. Vaghefi believed a device like this would have saved his father from going blind when he was a child.

The deadly virus was eradicated nearly 40 years ago following an extensive vaccination campaign. However a recent study which managed to bring back the virus horsepox, by piecing together bits of DNA, has signalled the potential for the virus to become a bioweapon.

Five New York City doctors charged over illegal prescription drug mill dishing out MILLIONS of opioids without even examining patients

Five New York doctors have been charged for prescribing millions of highly-addictive oxycodone pills to patients without examining them.

Drs Carl Anderson, Dante Cubangbang, Nkanga Nkanga, Anthony Pietropinto and Nadem Sayegh have been accused of running an illegal prescription drug mill that resulted in multiple deaths and several overdoses.

According to Manhattan federal prosecutors, the physicians often dished out pills under other people's names and without physically examining them or seeing them.

In return, many of them received cash payments or luxury gifts such as alcohol, dinners and all-expenses paid vacations.

Hungary sets fire to GMO corn fields in act of defiance against Monsanto, GMO advocates

To protect its environment from the self-replicating pollution of GMO plants, Hungary has set fire to 500 hectares of GM corn, according to LaJos Bognar, Hungary’s Minister of Rural Development. The planting of genetically modified crops is currently illegal in Hungary, and in 26 other countries around the world. Moreover, in at least 50 countries, GMOs are required to be labeled.

Meanwhile in America, the USDA disallowed GMO labeling and is promoting the continued commercialization of genetically modified crops. Monsanto has entrenched itself within the American political and legal systems, influencing politicians to sell out the environment for profit.

Rare Polio-Like Disease Hits Children In 16 States

Children's hospitals across the country are reporting the spread of a rare polio-like illness which has affected 38 people across 16 states this year.

The rare but serious disease known as Acute Flaccid Myelitis or AFM first made headlines in 2014. Since then, the CDC has tracked 362 cases almost entirely confined to children.

There is no vaccine for AFM - which is defined as an "inflammation of the spinal cord" which results in "limb, facial, oral or eye weakness" which can vary from subtle to severe.

Potent medicinal herbs that relieve pain

Pain is one of the first signs that the body exhibits whenever it’s experiencing problems. Although it is helpful for diagnosis, pain can be very uncomfortable, which is why many people depend on pain relievers. Aside from harmful synthetic drugs, pain relievers also come in the form of plants.

People can experience pain in many ways. It could either be localized or felt all over, fleeting or lasting, or it could also be sharp or dull. No matter how it’s experienced, pain relief is always wanted. Synthetic painkillers, such as acetaminophen and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), are widely used across the globe. However, these often come with adverse side effects, such as liver damage, ulcers, and kidney problems. Aside from these, people that regularly take synthetic painkillers tend to develop a resistance to the drug, which may leads to an addiction since the body requires a higher intake for the drug to be effective.

Supercharged overnight, Hurricane Michael menaces Florida

Hurricane Michael, one of the most powerful storms ever to hit the continental United States, slammed into the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday, unleashing a trail of destruction across 200 miles that splintered houses, peeled off roofs, and stirred up a terrifying surge of seawater that submerged entire neighborhoods and sent boats careening down city streets.

A storm that was initially forecast to arrive as a tropical storm instead amped up to furious intensity, hitting landfall just after midday near the small seaside community of Mexico Beach, 100 miles southwest of Tallahassee, with winds topping 155 miles per hour.

Images from there showed swaths of shattered debris where houses once stood and structures inundated up to their rooftops; the streets of Panama City, farther west, were blocked by downed tree limbs and impossible tangles of power lines. Recreational vehicles, trucks, and even trains were pushed over, surrounded by new lakes of water.

Big Pharma FDA scam allows drug companies to turn a $10 supplement into a $40,000 prescription drug while banning the supplement

Big Pharma is at it again. Thanks to an outdated and much exploited U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) loophole, L-glutamine – a supplement that offers a host of incredible health benefits – could soon move from the supplement section to the prescription counter at your local pharmacy. And its price could skyrocket from $10 for 120 pills, to as much as $40,000 for a year’s supply.

As reported by The Alliance for Natural Health (ANH-USA), the FDA has approved a new L-glutamine based drug called Endari for the treatment of sickle cell anemia, and since no supplement company has registered a New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) application for this amino acid, the supplement could be permanently removed from distribution by any other company.

How GRAPEFRUIT can seriously affect your medicine: Expert reveals 53 drugs that are made dangerously strong or weak by eating the fruit

Have you ever seen the instruction on your medication 'do not take this medicine with grapefruit juice' and wondered why? You're not alone.

At least 53 medications can be made less effective by the citrus fruit and people taking certain drugs should take extra care when deciding whether to eat it.

Grapefruit contains a compound which interferes with an enzyme in the small intestine, which is responsible for breaking down nearly half of all medicines.

As a result, the fruit can make medicines too strong or not strong enough by affecting how well your body absorbs them.

The latest archaeological research near Mount Vesuvius indicates that the victims of the 79AD eruption may have died from vaporized internal organs and bodily fluids which, in turn, caused their skulls to explode.

During the two-day eruption, Pompeii and other settlements within a 20km radius of Vesuvius were carpeted in volcanic ash before the 200- to 500-degree Celsius (392- to 932-degree Fahrenheit) pyroclastic flow smashed the settlements into the annals of history at a speed of between 100 and 300kph (62 to 186mph).

Raising vitamin D levels can prevent up to 80% of all cases of Type 2 diabetes

Dr. Garland and his team at UC San Diego conducted a study featuring 900 participants, which was recently published in the journal PLOS ONE. The goal was to examine the influence of vitamin D levels on Type 2 diabetes risk. The 12-year cohort study ultimately showed that vitamin D could help prevent nearly 80 percent of Type 2 diabetes cases. Past research has also indicated that the “sunshine vitamin” can reduce the risk of diabetes.
