HHS Extends Contract to Make ‘Humanized Mice’ With Aborted Baby Parts for Another 90 Days

The Department of Health and Human Services says it has granted a second 90-day extension to a contract it has with the University of California at San Francisco that requires UCSF to make “humanized mice.”

These creatures are made by implanting mice with human tissues taken from late-term aborted babies.

The HHS's multi-million-dollar contract with UCSF that requires the construction of these “humanized mice” creates a demand--driven by federal tax dollars--for tissue taken from late-term aborted babies. According to an estimate it has published on its website, the National Institutes of Health (which is a division of HHS) will spend $95 million this fiscal year alone on research that--like UCSF's "humanized mouse" contract--uses human fetal tissue.

The Green New Deal Continues the War on Meat

By José Niño

The War on Meat is back in action.

One year ago, I wrote about the “War on Meat” taking place around the West, where government agencies in tandem, with several plant-based activist groups, have made a concerted push to demonize meat. Some plans that they have put forward consist of taxing meat as a means of reducing meat consumption.

With the recently unveiled “Green New Deal”, the war drums pounding against beef have only gotten louder. Just like its 20th-century predecessor, the Green New Deal is an economically illiterate legislative package. Robert Murphy wrote two fantastic articles debunking many of the flawed policies included in the Green New Deal such as profligate spending and regulation.

However, this article will focus on the more social engineering aspects of the Green New Deal. Specifically, its anti-meat vision.

Blame Meat for Global Warming...

Exclusive: OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma exploring bankruptcy -sources

OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma LP is exploring filing for bankruptcy to address potentially significant liabilities from roughly 2,000 lawsuits alleging the drugmaker contributed to the deadly opioid crisis sweeping the United States, people familiar with the matter said on Monday.

The potential move shows how Purdue and its wealthy owners, the Sackler family, are under pressure to respond to mounting litigation accusing the company of misleading doctors and patients about risks associated with prolonged use of its prescription opioids.

Purdue denies the allegations, arguing that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved labels for its opioids carried warnings about the risk of abuse and misuse associated with the pain treatments.

‘Elixir of Immortality’ Uncovered in 2,000-Year-Old Chinese Tomb

A yellowish liquid found in a bronze pot dating back some 2,000 years is not wine, as Chinese archaeologists initially thought. It’s actually an “elixir of immortality” concocted during ancient times.

The bronze pot was discovered last October by archaeologists working at the tomb of a noble family in the Henan Province of central China. The 210-square-meter site in the city of Luoyang dates back to the Western Han Dynasty (202 BCE to 8 CE) and, in addition to the pot, yielded the well-preserved remains of a nobleman, painted clay pots, materials made from jade and bronze, and a lamp in the shape of a wild goose.

Intriguingly, the pot contained 3.5 liters (0.9 gallons) of a yellowish liquid exhibiting a very strong alcohol-like smell. At the time, archaeologists figured it was wine—a conclusion consistent with other discoveries dating back to the same period. Back then, wine made from rice and sorghum grains were used in ritual sacrifices and ceremonies, reported Xinhua.

An Asteroid the Size of a Jumbo Jet Just Buzzed Safely By Earth

The space rock, named asteroid 2015 EG, posed no threat during the encounter as it passed by at a safe distance of about 274,400 miles (441,600 kilometers), or 1.1 times the average distance between Earth and the moon, at 4:03 p.m. EST (2103 GMT).

As its name implies, asteroid 2015 EG was discovered in 2015. NASA estimates that the space rock measures between 63 and 141 feet (19 to 43 meters) across and is currently barrelling through the solar system at 21,545 mph (9.63 km/s). It's actually one of five near-Earth asteroids on NASA's radar today, but asteroid 2015 EG made the closest approach of them all, according to NASA's Asteroid Watch.

Flu Stats: When the Numbers Don’t Add Up

The very first tidbit that caught my eye was the CDC’s yearly statement about flu deaths on their own website. After reading it on several flu summary pages, that 80,000 stat seems to negate what the NYT and other media sources are repeating:

How many people died from flu during the 2017-2018 season?

While flu deaths in children are reported to CDC, flu deaths in adults are not nationally notifiable.

How many people die from flu each year? (2016 – 2017)

CDC does not count how many people die from flu each year. Unlike flu deaths in children, flu deaths in adults are not nationally reportable.

How many people died from flu during the 2015-2016 season?

CDC does not count how many people die from flu each year.

Wi-Fi in Schools: Experimenting with the Next Generation

When it comes to accessing this ocean of information, we have two basic choices: wired or Wi-Fi. The vast majority of schools have embraced the wireless revolution. It’s easy to see why. Compared to wired internet, wireless is simpler, cheaper, and faster for schools to install.

Today, students are trading notebooks and textbooks for laptops, cellphones, iPads, and all manner of “smart” devices connected to a potent wireless infrastructure that lets them be used virtually anywhere on school grounds.

But that wireless web comes with a devastating downside. Doctors and scientists say that the students and teachers who attend these schools are risking their health.

Most US coal plants are contaminating groundwater with toxins, analysis finds

Almost every coal-fired power plant in the US is contaminating groundwater with unsafe levels of toxic pollution, according to the first comprehensive analysis of the consequences of coal ash waste disposal.

Of the 265 US power plants that monitor groundwater, 242 have reported unsafe levels of at least one pollutant derived from coal ash, which is the remnants of coal after it is burned for energy. More than half such facilities report unsafe levels of arsenic, a carcinogen linked to multiple types of cancer, with 60% finding elevated lithium, which is associated with neurological damage.

In all, nine out of every 10 coal plants with reportable data have tainted nearby groundwater with at least one coal ash pollutant, with a majority having unsafe levels of at least four different toxins.

Netherlands Moving Towards Euthanasia for the Healthy

The Netherlands was the first country in the world to legalize euthanasia in 2002. Today, they are still the global pioneers. The Dutch keep pushing the boundaries wider and wider.

Euthanasia is becoming increasingly common. In 2017 (the last year for which figures are available), doctors reported administering lethal injections to 6,585 patients. In 2010, that number was only 3,316. Thus, euthanasia has doubled in less than a decade.

Euthanasia has been normalized to the extent that, last year, the chairman of the Royal Dutch Medical Association asked the Dutch government to communicate to the public that euthanasia is not a “right.” Patients need to understand that their doctor is never obligated to administer it.

The 2002 bill that legalized euthanasia states that people become eligible when they have “unbearable suffering with no prospect of improvement.” Thus, euthanasia was never strictly limited to patients with terminal illnesses.

Israel sets Gaza up for superbug epidemic

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism recently ran a report titled “Unseen enemy: Doctors in Gaza battling superbug epidemic”.

Given the regular atrocities to which the Gaza Strip is subjected by a very visible enemy – the state of Israel – the last thing that’s needed is an unseen one, to boot.

In the past five years alone, Israel’s activities vis-a-vis the Palestinian territory have included a 50-day assault in 2014 that killed some 2,251 Palestinians – most of them civilians, and more than 550 of them children – along with repeated attacks on peaceful Palestinian protesters in the context of the Great March of Return, which saw more than 60 Palestinians killed on a single day last May.

GOVERNMENT RESEARCH CONFIRMS MEASLES OUTBREAKS ARE TRANSMITTED BY THE VACCINATED

The level of hysteria surrounding measles is rising fast, although there has only been 159 cases in North America this season. People are freaking out and blaming the unvaccinated for this ‘outbreak.’ Vaccine advocates are demanding that anti-vaccine voices are scrubbed from public view. Facebook is working to ban all informed vaccine content from the site. Lawmakers are proposing a flurry of legislation aimed at severely punishing families that prefer not to vaccinate, even looking to remove vaccine exemptions at the federal level.

Measles is a terrible disease, and no child should have to suffer, and while generations before us survived the disease, we have entered an era where the individual is pressed more and more to conform in every way to the demands of the hive. But is all the hype and panic aimed at the anti-vaccine community really justified? Are unvaccinated kids really the problem?

Scott Adams: Talking to Dr. Shiva About Climate Change

The earth maintains equilibrium via multiple processes
Those processes NEUTRALIZE climate change
Richard Lindzen’s “Iris effect” has been confirmed true
Cloud shape changes with CO2 increase, neutralizes increase
Cloud and water vapor changes from CO2, NOT in the models
There is NO sharp rate increase in temperature over the last 50 years
2.5B years ago, the sun was putting out 30% LESS energy
With 30% less sun energy…earth temperatures barely colder
The earth maintained equilibrium via clouds and water vapor
Multi-dimensional problems can’t be reduced to a single variable (like CO2)
People don’t understand math and physics, they’re being bamboozled
CO2 doubled already, temp should be up 4 degrees, per models
The models are NOT supported by the data
Actual temperature increase has only been half degree

Striking scans show how 'lung cancer patient's tumours SHRUNK within three months of him taking daily drops of cannabis-derived oil'

A cancer patient who accepted the disease would kill him saw his tumours shrink – by taking drops of cannabidiol (CBD) oil each day.

The 81-year-old, who hasn't been identified, repeatedly refused chemotherapy and other treatments to prolong his life.

Instead, the ex-smoker, believed to be from the Stoke-on-Trent area, opted to take CBD oil for three months to tackle his lung cancer.

Doctors have now published stunning scans, showing how doing so halved the size of his tumours and reversed the progression of his disease.

The tale has been published in a medical journal, where doctors claimed 'CBD may have had a role in the striking response'.

Giza Pyramid mystery chamber may hold Pharaoh’s 'meteorite throne'

It is believed ancient Egypt attributed great value to meteoritic iron for the production of ornamental or ceremonial objects. In 2016 it was confirmed that King Tut’s dagger originated from a meteorite. Meteoric iron is clearly indicated by its high nickel content.

Magli admits that his proposal is still just a theory, but says it’s one worth further exploration, suggesting a fresh investigation of the pyramid’s north shaft to determine if it does indeed lead into the newly-discovered
chamber.

SpaceX Crew Dragon Docks With International Space Station After Successful Launch

On Saturday, we reported about the "historic" launch of SpaceX's Crew Dragon on the company's Falcon 9 rocket. It was an event which NASA called "a big night for United States of America". Now, the Crew Dragon's subsequent task of docking with the International Space Station has also been a success, with Bloomberg's Dana Hull calling the test flight a "smooth rendezvous". The docking with the ISS marks the first time that Crew Dragon has ever flown and puts the pressure on SpaceX's private company competition at Boeing, who also aims to work with NASA.

While the flight's only cargo this time around was Ripley, a female mannequin as no humans were on board for the test flight, the Crew Dragon's success will almost assure that it will carry passengers into space this summer on its next flight.

CGI: “He Died As A Direct Result of the HPV Vaccine” – Mother Of Dead Teenager Speaks Out

HPV vaccine injuries are no longer extremely rare. In fact, neither are vaccine injuries in general. This is exemplified by the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA). To date, it’s paid approximately $4 billion to families with vaccine injured children. These adverse reactions are the reason why the Japanese government, for example, suspended its recommendation of the HPV vaccine. It’s also important to note that these injuries only take into account 1 percent of all vaccine injured children, seeing as how 99 percent of vaccine injuries go completely unreported. (source)

Furthermore, the NCVIA completely protects pharmaceutical companies from any blame, which means that they can get away with being completely careless with their products.

Vulnerable youngsters rushed into treatment. Staff too nervous to speak out: After resigning from controversial Tavistock gender clinic trust, a former governor says he fears we're hurrying children down a transgender path they may bitterly regret

For four decades, I have devoted my career to trying to understand people who are greatly distressed and confused.

As an adult psychotherapist, I deal with patients who may express their feelings in challenging ways.

But my role is to pay careful attention and to try to tune in to what isn’t being said; the hidden aspects of a patient’s story.

The key to achieving this is patience, time and slow-moving, dogged determination — words that aren’t fashionable in a fast-paced world intent on quick fixes and budget cuts.

But it’s my view that to try to treat vulnerable patients in any other way can be hugely damaging.

Medical doctors across the U.S. speak out against mandatory vaccination laws

'Mole' on InSight Mars Lander Starts Burrowing, But the Going Is Rough

The "mole" aboard NASA's InSight Mars lander has encountered stiff resistance on its first subsurface sojourn beneath the surface of the Red Planet.

In a major mission milestone, InSight's Heat Flow and Physical Properties Package (HP3) instrument burrowed underground for the first time on Feb. 28. After 400 hammer blows over the course of four hours, the instrument apparently got between 7 inches and 19.7 inches (18 to 50 centimeters) beneath the red dirt — but obstacles slowed its progress, mission team members said.

"On its way into the depths, the mole seems to have hit a stone, tilted about 15 degrees and pushed it aside or passed it," HP3 principal investigator Tilman Spohn, of the German Aerospace Center (known by its German acronym, DLR), said in a statement.

I'm going to highlight twenty five of the most important topics as well as videos I've produced in the past to highlight what Men Going Their Own Way means and why we are doing it. The first thing to remember is that a man that has taken a metaphorical red pill is a man that has learned the ugly truth about female nature.

TOP 10 MOST CONTAMINATED GROUNDWATER SITES REVEALED IN FIRST MAJOR COAL ASH POLLUTION STUDY

An examination of monitoring data available for the first time concludes that 91 percent of U.S. coal-fired power plants with monitoring data are contaminating groundwater with unsafe levels of toxic pollutants.
The study by the Environmental Integrity Project, with assistance from Earthjustice, used industry data that became available to the public for the first time in 2018 because of requirements in federal coal ash regulations issued in 2015.

The report found that found that the groundwater near 242 of the 265 power plants with monitoring data contained unsafe levels of one or more of the pollutants in coal ash, including arsenic, a known carcinogen, and lithium, which is associated with neurological damage, among other pollutants.

Vaping Is Saving Lives

By Veronique de Rugy

Tobacco kills half a million people a year.

Talking about the impact of smokers’ switching from cigarettes to vaping in a recent interview with Medscape, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the head of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said this:

"At face value, we believe that these products pose less risk than combusting tobacco. If you can fully switch every currently addicted adult smoker who is using combustible tobacco products onto e-cigarettes, you will have a profound impact on public health. And some people are able to switch completely. We think that is a public health benefit."

Back in November, he told CNBC: “If we can switch every adult smoker fully to e-cigarettes, it would have a huge public health impact.” And in a Tweet on January 19, Gottlieb reaffirmed his belief that “if every currently addicted adult smoker switched completely to e-cigs it would provide a tremendous public health gain.”

Artificial sweeteners linked to diabetes and obesity

A review led by researchers from Purdue University has revealed that drinking diet soda does not, in fact, improve your health outcome. The results of the paper, which was published in 2016 by the journal Trends in Endocrinology & Metabolism, yielded some shocking results.

The researchers likened the effects of artificial sweeteners to that of the little boy who cried wolf; they say artificial sweeteners actually tease your body by making it think it’s getting real food. When no calories have been made available, however, your body becomes confused and doesn’t know how to respond.

On a physiological level, this means when diet soda drinkers eat real sugar, their bodies may not know how to respond either, and fail to release the hormone that regulates blood sugar and blood pressure.

The report reveals that diet soda drinkers actually tend to put on more weight than those who don’t drink diet sodas.

War is hell: Toxic chemicals from the 20 million gallons of Agent Orange used by US forces to clear foliage during the Vietnam War continue to pollute its soil, water and food

A toxic by-product from the US bombardment of Vietnamese countryside with the herbicide Agent Orange is still contaminating the environment today.

The chemical constituents of Agent Orange itself break down within weeks of application but a byproduct called dioxin TCDD can persist for decades or centuries.

US forces dropped 20 million gallons of the concoction over Vietnam during the war to thin vegetation utilised by the Viet Cong.

The toxic chemical is still present in high concentrations in the environment and in the food chain around ex-US airbases.

Spider Silk Could Be Used as Robotic Muscle

Researchers have found that spider silk produces a strong twisting motion when exposed to humidity, and may be usable for future artificial muscles or actuators.

Spider silk, already known as one of the strongest materials for its weight, turns out to have another unusual property that might lead to new kinds of artificial muscles or robotic actuators, researchers have found.

The resilient fibers, the team discovered, respond very strongly to changes in humidity. Above a certain level of relative humidity in the air, they suddenly contract and twist, exerting enough force to potentially be competitive with other materials being explored as actuators -- devices that move to perform some activity such as controlling a valve.

"Major Milestone In U.S. History": Falcon 9 Crew Launch Marks Huge Win for Musk, SpaceX

Regardless of how Elon Musk's other ventures are currently doing, the country is undoubtedly one step closer to space tourism thanks to a successful SpaceX launch that took place this weekend. At the same time, NASA is reaping the rewards of its gamble to partner with private industry.

On March 1 at 2:49 AM, SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket launched, carrying a crew capsule with a life-sized test dummy named Ripley. The rocket carried Crew Dragon on its way to the space station, where it will spend five days docked to an orbiting outpost before making a splashdown back into the Atlantic ocean next Friday. The launch represents crucial training for the next space demo, which may take place this summer – only this time with two astronauts.

Amazon Joins Big Tech Assault On Anti-Vaccine Information

As major media and big tech continue freaking out over 159 measles cases in the U.S., anti-vaccine campaigners are increasingly being likened to terrorists as their ability to share information and earn money is being cut off.

The origin of this latest move against the free flow of information seems to have stemmed from a letter sent by Adam Schiff (D-CA) to the heads of Facebook and Google wherein he lamented the increased viewership of the vaccine debate:

“There is strong evidence to suggest that at least part of the source of this trend is the degree to which medically inaccurate information about vaccines surface on the websites where many Americans get their information,” Schiff wrote in the letter. “The algorithms which power these services are not designed to distinguish quality information from misinformation or misleading information, and the consequences of that are particularly troubling for public health issues.” (Source: Bloomberg)

‘I don’t feel high ... I feel better’: 98-year-old tries pot, then cuts back on morphine

Ruth Brunn finally said yes to marijuana. She is 98.

She pops a green pill filled with cannabis oil into her mouth with a sip of vitamin water. Then Brunn, who has neuropathy, settles back in her wheelchair and waits for the jabbing pain in her shoulders, arms and hands to ebb.

“I don’t feel high or stoned,” she said. “All I know is I feel better when I take this.”

Brunn will soon have company. The nursing home in New York City where she lives, the Hebrew Home at Riverdale, is taking the unusual step of helping its residents use medical marijuana under a new program to treat various illnesses with an alternative to prescription drugs. While the staff will not store or administer pot, residents are allowed to buy it from a dispensary, keep it in locked boxes in their rooms and take it on their own.

SpaceX Crew Dragon, built to carry humans, launches demo flight

SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule, its first spacecraft designed to carry humans, took flight for the first time Saturday.

An uncrewed demonstration mission took off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida early Saturday, en route to the International Space Station.

The successful launch without people puts SpaceX one step closer to an historic landmark: Crew Dragon could be the first commercially built spacecraft to carry NASA astronauts to orbit. And Crew Dragon — along with a capsule called Starliner built by Boeing — could end the United States' decade-long reliance on Russia for human spaceflight.

Elon Musk, SpaceX's chief executive and lead designer, told a crowd of reporters that he was "emotionally exhausted" after launch. His rocket company's main goal since it was founded in 2002 was to someday send humans to space.

Scientists develop DNA test to distinguish between identical twins in forensic breakthrough that could help to solve decades-old cold cases

Scientists may finally have cracked the code to using DNA to pinpoint a specific individual from a set of identical twins.

Since it was first introduced to the courts in the 1980s, DNA analysis has transformed the way we approach criminal investigations.

But, despite more than 30 years of advancements since, there’s still one scenario that can stand in the way of nailing down the right suspect even when DNA is present: identical twins.

Identical twins arise from the same fertilized egg, and standard DNA tests are so-far unable to pinpoint the minute differences.

That means in cases where one twin commits a crime, it sometimes ends up that both walk free, as prosecutors are unable to conclude which of the two really did it.

FAMILY RAIDED BY COPS, THEIR CHILDREN KIDNAPPED—FOR NOT BRINGING SON TO ER FOR A FEVER

The nightmare for this family started 4 days ago when they brought their toddler to the doctor at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine because he had a fever. The fever had gotten pretty high, 105, so the doctor told the family to take the baby to the ER.

When the family got back to the car, however, they took Heber’s temperature once more and noticed that it had dropped significantly. His temp fell to 102, which is no reason to head to the ER.

“He’s acting normal. He’s dancing with his sisters in his car seat. And I take his temperature and it’s 102,” said Beck.

For those who may be unaware, it is not necessary to bring your toddler to the ER for a fever. According to Johns Hopkins medicine, if a toddler has no other symptoms with fevers under 104, you just need to make them comfortable. What’s more, they only recommend seeking medical attention after repeated fevers of 104 or higher—which is what this family did.

The documentaries Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe, Man Made Epidemic, and Shoot' Em Up: The Truth About Vaccines were previously available on Amazon's streaming service. But on Friday, journalists from CNN and BuzzFeed began noticing you could no longer find them.

CAN AUTISM BE CURED?

The Medical Mafia has two answers to all diseases:

1. “We don’t know what causes it”

2. “And we don’t know how to cure it – but we $ure know how to manage it for the re$t of your life.”

This is a heartbreaking answer for the parents of autistic children.

AMAZON JUST REMOVED ALL MOVIES THAT THEY CONSIDER "ANTI-VACCINE"

Amazon has apparently started removing anti-vaccine documentaries from its Amazon Prime Video streaming service. The move came days after a CNN Business report highlighted the anti-vaccine comment available on the site, and hours after Rep. Adam Schiff wrote an open letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, saying he is concerned “that Amazon is surfacing and recommending” anti-vaccination books and movies.

Arsonists attack Ebola clinics in DRC as climate of distrust grows

A second clinic serving patients affected by the escalating Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo has been set alight, as concerns mount over widespread distrust of health agencies.

Seven months since the start of the outbreak, which has claimed 548 lives, experts warned that the virus is still not under control and said suspicion of agencies is severely undermining Ebola services.

Médecins Sans Frontières, which runs treatment centres in Katwa and Butembo that were attacked, and is one of the agencies leading the wider Ebola response, said key partners needed to reconsider their approach.

“Within the response, and ourselves, MSF, we need to think what more we could have done, because right now it’s clear that we do not have enough trust within the community,” said Pierre Van Heddegem, project coordinator of the Ebola response in Katwa, adding that all agencies needed to engage in greater consultation with communities.

We Just Got The First Evidence of a Planet-Wide Groundwater System on Mars

Mars may look like a dry, dusty planet today. But scientific models indicate that it was likely once home to massive amounts of water, both above and below its surface - and now, researchers have evidence to back those models up.

"Early Mars was a watery world, but as the planet's climate changed this water retreated below the surface to form pools and 'groundwater'," European Space Agency (ESA) researcher Francesco Salese said in a press release.

"We traced this water in our study, as its scale and role is a matter of debate," he continued, "and we found the first geological evidence of a planet-wide groundwater system on Mars."

It's Just About 'Go' Time for SpaceX's 1st Crew Dragon Spaceship

It's almost "go" time for SpaceX's first spaceship built for NASA astronauts.

SpaceX's first Crew Dragon spacecraft is poised for a historic test flight Saturday (March 2), when it's scheduled to soar into orbit from NASA's Kennedy Space Center here atop a Falcon 9 rocket. Liftoff is set for 2:48 a.m. EST (0748 GMT).

There won't be a crew aboard this Crew Dragon test flight, but the mission — called Demo-1 — is carrying the hopes of SpaceX and NASA to once again be able to launch their astronauts on American rockets from U.S. soil. It's also carrying a spacesuit-clad test dummy nicknamed Ripley and 400 lbs. (181 kilograms) of supplies.

A nanoparticle injection is all it takes to let these mice see in infrared

I know it’s everyone’s dream to see outside the wavelengths allotted to our visual systems. Well, as usual, mice have gotten there first, with the help of some clever scientists. By injecting specialized light-tweaking nanoparticles into a mouse’s retina, that mouse is suddenly and clearly able to perceive near-infrared light — suggesting the same could be possible for us, assuming you don’t mind a needle in the eye.

The advance involves what the researchers, from the University of Science and Technology in China, call “ocular injectable photoreceptor-binding upconversion nanoparticles.” It’s actually not as complicated as it sounds. Well… actually, it is pretty complicated.

2019 Science Award Retracted Amid Controversy Over Glyphosate’s Danger

2019 Award Retracted Amid Controversy Over Glyphosate’s True Danger

According to Gunatilake and Jayasumana, consumption of glyphosate-contaminated water may contribute to chronic kidney disease by facilitating the transport of heavy metals such as arsenic and cadmium into the kidneys.14

The AAAS award announcement incited a rash of critique by defenders of glyphosate, leading the AAAS to issue another statement just two days later, saying the organization is “taking steps to reassess the 2019 Award for Scientific Freedom and Responsibility, after concerns were voiced by scientists and members. This award will not be presented … as originally planned while we further evaluate the award selection.”

HPV vaccine linked to growing rates of infertility in both men and women

Fertility rates are plummeting at an unprecedented pace around the world. In the United States, birth rates just reached a thirty-year low — even in spite of current economic booms. In Finland, birth rates just reached the lowest they’ve been in 150 years. Across the board, studies show that a majority of developed nations in the world are now facing falling fertility rates.

While some attribute falling birth rates to social changes, new evidence shows there is more to the puzzle than media coverage would seem to suggest. Estimates from the CDC indicate that some 12 percent of American women face the struggle of infertility — and researchers are trying to figure out why.

Now, a scientific study has linked the HPV vaccine to the rise of infertility in both men and women.

Study suggests spices outperform chemo and radiation for treating cancer

While many other studies have shown curcumin’s potential to kill cancer cells and prevent more from growing without causing side effects, curcumin extracts are still not being used in cancer therapy. Though the evidence is clear, big pharmaceutical corporations are not interested in natural substances that don’t have the potential for huge profits. Chemotherapy drugs bring in a lot of money. And that’s the only thing that matters to them.

Medicare for No One

Medicare for everyone would mean that the government would pay all, or at least 80 percent of all, of the cost of medical care for everyone — the 17-year-old on his first job as well as the retired person who has contributed for 40 years to Medicare. The amount needed to finance this scheme would be approximately equal to the entire federal budget. All of the fanciful sources of savings from such a program (such as that the expenses of administering the program and indeed the entire health insurance industry would both vanish) would hardly cover a small percentage of this amount.

Concern over food safety as US seeks greater access to UK markets

The US has outlined its objectives for a post-Brexit trade deal with the UK, demanding greater access to the food markets where products such as chlorinated chicken or hormone-fed beef are banned under EU rules.

The US laid out its aims for a trade deal to cut tariff and non-tariff barriers for US industrial and agricultural goods and reduce regulatory differences.

The Trump administration is seeking to eliminate or reduce barriers for US agricultural products and secure duty-free access for industrial goods.

THE NEXT MANDATORY VACCINE BATTLEGROUND: HOMESCHOOL CHILDREN

SOURCE: CRYPTOGON
Via: Vaccine Impact:

As we have frequently reported here at Health Impact News, legislative efforts are underway in many states to remove parental choice for childhood vaccines, with new proposed bills removing religious and philosophical exemptions to childhood vaccines which are mandated as a requirement for school attendance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am not an anti-vaxxer; but I think that parents should have the right - and the responsibility - of deciding what is best for their own child to receive.

And to anyone who has not yet seen the film "Vaxxed", I suggest that you find it, and view it; see how much it "sways" your opinion about infant and child vaccination.

It’s time to look at soil health: Synthetic fertilizers, herbicides have taken an enormous toll, with long-term consequences

The thing about soil is that you cannot tell how healthy it is just by looking at it, and it can take years to determine the long-term effects of what you put in to it. For this reason, agrochemical companies have been able to push the use of harmful pesticides and other chemicals for decades without facing any consequences because, for a long time, nobody could be sure how much damage they were causing.

It is a simple, but inescapable truth, however, that “whatever a person is sowing, this he will also reap.” We are now reaping what we have been sowing for decades. Years and years of pumping the soil full of chemicals has left it severely nutritionally depleted, low in microbial diversity and toxic to human health.

IKEA DEVELOPS REMOTE-CONTROLLED BOATS THAT COLLECT FLOATING TRASH FROM RIVERS

By Mandy Froelich / Truth Theory

Your favorite Swedish company has done it again. In an effort to preserve the environment, IKEA developed remote-controlled boats that collect floating rubbish from rivers and lakes. The Good Ship IKEA boat is modeled after the company’s SMÅKRYP bath toy set.

The Good Ship IKEA boat weighs 150 pounds and is 10-feet long. When deployed, one boat can collect up to 44 pounds of garbage at one time. Not only are the floating vessels effective but they’re also quite adorable.

For the development of the boats, IKEA partnered with Creekside Education Trust. In early February, two of the boats were deployed into Deptford Creek, in southeast London. The goal was to increase public awareness about water pollution, as well as celebrate the opening of IKEA’s newest branch in Greenwich. For one week, pedestrians and school children were invited to pilot the boats up and down the creek.

4 New DNA Letters Double Life's Alphabet

The DNA of life on Earth naturally stores its information in just four key chemicals—guanine, cytosine, adenine and thymine, commonly referred to as G, C, A and T, respectively.

Now scientists have doubled this number of life’s building blocks, creating for the first time a synthetic, eight-letter genetic language that seems to store and transcribe information just like natural DNA.

In a study published on 22 February in Science, a consortium of researchers led by Steven Benner, founder of the Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution in Alachua, Florida, suggests that an expanded genetic alphabet could, in theory, also support life.

OWNERS OF COMPANY THAT BOUGHT ABORTED BABY PARTS FROM PLANNED PARENTHOOD ARE ARRESTED

The arrest of Roberto and William Isaias was gratifying to Operation Rescue, which published an investigative research report on October 27, 2016 – just days before the Presidential Election that put Donald J. Trump in office – that detailed their crimes in Ecuador, dubious dealings with the Obama administration, their business with Planned Parenthood and the aborted baby body parts trade.

“We understood that this family was in the U.S. under suspicious circumstances, and that they had committed crimes in Ecuador and Southern California,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We had hoped that one day they would return to Ecuador so that justice could be done, but their arrests still took us by surprise.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note their connections to Obama and Clinton.

From where I sit, this was a very excellent "collar" , and one wonders just what they will say, to get a better "deal" when pressed about how Obama and Clinton helped them.

MICROPLASTICS HAVE BEEN FOUND IN OUR DEEPEST OCEAN ANIMALS

The deepest marine organisms known to humans are contaminated by plastics, according to a study published Wednesday.

Researchers presented “the deepest record of microplastic ingestion, indicating it is highly likely there are no marine ecosystems left that are not impacted by plastic pollution,” according to the paper in Royal Society Open Science.

Led by Alan Jamieson, a marine ecologist at Newcastle University, the team examined the guts of small organisms called lysianassid amphipods—colloquially known as “sea fleas”—collected from six deep ocean habitats.

Though the trenches ranged in location from Japanese to Chilean waters, all of them were within the “hadal zone,” meaning they were at least 6,000 meters under the sea. The study even includes amphipods collected at Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench, which is the lowest known point in the seabed at 10,890 meters below the ocean surface.
