Diabetes surge 'could bankrupt health service'

The number of those who are living with the condition has soared by 59.8pc since 2005, meaning that more than 3.3 million people now have it.

Diabetes UK, the charity that uncovered the official figures, says the data showed the public health situation was spiralling "out of control".

The increase means that more than 5pc of the UK population now has the condition.

Hunger games: Find this wild food and you’ll never starve

Two weekends ago I spent two days learning from a walking encyclopedia. Mark Warren operates Medicine Bow, a primitive school of Earthlore, in the north Georgia mountains near Dahlonega. Though I attended his Stalking/Tracking class, Mark’s willingness to veer onto other paths and integrate useful plants in the Eastern Woodlands only enhanced my learning experience.

OBAMA-APPOINTED JUDGE GIVES POTENTIALLY BREAKTHROUGH RULING GIVING DRUG COMPANIES THE RIGHT TO MARKET DRUGS FOR USES NOT APPROVED BY FDA

A federal court has given a drug company preliminary approval to market a drug for a condition not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Amarin Pharma’s drug Vascepa is approved for use in treating extremely high levels—over 500 milligrams per deciliter—of fats known as triglycerides, in the blood. Amarin also wanted to promote the drug for use in patients with “persistently high levels,” from 200 to 499, of triglycerides. The FDA denied approval for that use earlier this year, concerned that Vascepa wouldn’t help such patients avoid heart disease or heart attacks. Amarin then went to court, claiming its First Amendment rights allowed it to give information to physicians.

One of the world's most dangerous volcanoes erupts in Ecuador as state of emergency is declared and hundreds are evacuated

Cotopaxi is considered one of the world's most dangerous volcanoes due to a glacial cover that makes it prone to fast-moving volcanic rock and mud flows, known as lahares.

The formidable 19,600-foot snow-capped volcano also is close to the heavily populated area around Quito but it has not significantly erupted since 1877.

Ohio's Legal Weed Proposal Could Create the World’s First 'Pot Grower Oligarchy'

Ohio voters will have the opportunity to legalize the commercial cultivation and sale of cannabis this November, including for medical marijuana patients and recreational consumers. A constitutional amendment that officially qualified for the ballot this week would allow adults 21 and over in the state to grow four plants and possess eight ounces of marijuana at home. But the measure is controversial within the pro-marijuana legalization community, and has even united some pot activists and conservative Republicans in opposition.

"Birth Control: to create a race of thoroughbreds - "Slogan of Margaret Sanger - Founder of Planned Parenthood

Adolf Hitler - Dictator of Nazi Germany "The demand that defective people be prevented from propagating equally defective offspring. . . represents the most humane act of mankind." Mein Kampf, vol. 1, ch. 10

Margaret Sanger - Founder of Planned Parenthood ". . .we prefer the policy of immediate sterilizarion, of making sure that parenthood is ' absolutely prohibed ' to the feeble-minded." The Pivot of Civilization, p102

Most people today think that Planned Parenthood and Nazi Germany have little in common. Their histories show otherwise. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, subscribe to a Hitlerian philosophy of Eugenics - the science of improving "racial health" by socially engineering human reproduction. Both Hitler and the founders of Planned Parenthood advocate birth control, sterilization, and segregation in concentration camps for the "unfit."

The Business of Biotech: Engineering the Genome for Fun and Profit

snip: If all of this sounds like a lot of work, it is. If it sounds like the switch to 100% non-GMO foods will be a gradual process of weaning yourself off of certain products and sourcing appropriate alternatives, it will. If it sounds like there’s no one to blame at the end of the day for not starting to take these steps, there isn’t. In the end, we can’t directly determine what’s happening in our neighbor’s house (let alone what’s happening in other countries or other continents), but the buck stops where it has always stopped: at our own kitchen table.

We still have the freedom to choose (for the most part) what we put in our mouth and what we don’t. And unless we start taking that freedom seriously as the responsibility that it is, there will be no end to the GMO agenda.

California Now Wants to be First State to Mandate Adult Vaccines – Criminal Penalties for those Who Refuse

In a brazen act of medical tyranny, California recently became the first state in the U.S. where lawmakers removed religious exemptions to those opposing vaccines for their children. The bill now signed into law, SB277, faces legal hurdles in court next.

Now, legislators in California want to pass the “first US adult vaccine mandate with NO personal exemptions and CRIMINAL penalties for failure to comply.” SB 792, would eliminate an adult’s right to exempt themselves from one, some, or all vaccines, a risk-laden medical procedure.

Swallowed by the sea: How ten years after Katrina, Louisiana's fishing towns are disappearing into the Gulf of Mexico

Rocky Morales is watching his small Louisiana town of Delacroix slowly melt into the water. The woods where he played hide-and-seek as a boy are gone. It's all water and mud back there now. So, too, is the nearby marsh where townsfolk once trapped for muskrat, otter and mink.

Many of the fishermen who once lived here — his friends and relatives — have disappeared as well, fleeing behind the intricate levee system protecting New Orleans out of fear that one more hurricane will be all it takes to send the rest of Delacroix into the sea.

Ten years after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast - killing more than 1,830 people and causing more than $150billion in damage in the nation's costliest disaster - New Orleans has been fortified by a new $14.5-billion flood protection system.

Animas River May Remain Toxic for Decades

Ever since the EPA accidentally dumped 3 million gallons of toxic mine water into the Animas River, Colorado authorities have been keen on reopening the river for public use as soon as possible. The river is a significant source of tourist income in the region, and they don’t want the toxic spill to put a damper on their summer.

Governor John Hickenlooper is one of those authorities, and he’s determined to prove that everything is back to normal. So on Tuesday, after being given the challenge by the Durango Herald, he decided to take a big gulp of river water for the cameras. After 24 hours, he reported that he was still in perfect health.

However, that hardly proves that the river is safe, at least in the long-term.

Most Scientific Research of Western Medicine Untrustable & Fraudulent, Say Insiders and Experts

Fraudulent scientific research is rife throughout the world due to the power of monetary influence wielded by Big Pharma, the giant cartel of multinational pharmaceutical corporations started over 100 years ago by the Rockefellers. This fraudulent scientific research is now so widespread and pervasive it is become an open secret. There is a long list of medical journal editors, doctors and professors on the “outside”, former Big Pharma employees and executives on the “inside”, as well as government officials somewhere in between, who have stepped forward as whistleblowers and acknowledged the fraud. Money buys favorable research. Period. This is not really surprising, given the history of Rockefeller Western medicine and the fact that Big Pharma’s business model is based on “managing” disease, “treating” symptoms and keeping patients on the hamster wheel, rather than actually healing them completely.

Forest Service Official Who Let Nestle Drain California Water Now Works for Them

An ongoing investigation by The Desert Sun into Nestle’s contentious bottled water operations in drought-stricken California first disclosed that the company’s permit to draw water had a rather astonishing expiration date that occurred over a quarter century ago, in 1988. Recently, the Sun reported an update in the investigation with a jaw-dropping twist: the Forest Service — not Nestle — is the agency primarily responsible for failing to renew Nestle’s permit.

In fact, judging by the government agency’s complete inability to even review Nestle’s long-expired permit — not to mention the lucrative job a retired Forest Service supervisor currently enjoys — there is an arguable case that collusion and corruption are at the heart of the entire issue.

Hear Our Stories: Vaccines Are NOT Safe

We don’t have a communicable disease public health crises or low vaccination rates. And in fact, even if we did, we still don’t need vaccines to “prevent” those “diseases” – death from disease had already been virtually eliminated by the time most vaccines had arrived on the market; so really then, what we actually need to be focusing on here is death from disease, not getting the disease. Consider this: many of the people who wound up with measles at Disneyland had been vaccinated, and neither they nor those who were unvaccinated, died. So, is there a problem? No, not at all – it is a manufactured problem.

FAMILY BURNED BY EXPLOSION OF WELL CONTAMINATED BY FRACKING

A Texas family is suing several companies involved in fracking after their water well exploded, injuring all four of them.

In August 2014, Cody Murray and his father, Jim, went to inspect the family’s pump house after seeing pressurized water spraying from it. Upon entering the building and turning on a switch, a fireball erupted from inside the well. Cody sustained serious burns on his arms, upper back, neck, forehead and nose after pulling his father away from the explosion, which caused serious injuries to Jim, Cody’s wife and his 4-year-old daughter.

Cody says he is unable to work and may never be able to do so again.

Their attorneys say the explosion was caused by methane gas that leaked into the well from nearby fracking operations run by the defendants, EOG Resources, Fairway Resources LLC and three Fairway subsidiaries. Fairway Resources GP, LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Goldman Sachs, according to Courthouse News Service.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oil company executives and their families should be MANDATED to live in very close proximity to where their companies are fracking.

This Geologist Predicted The EPA Would Intentionally Cause a Toxic Spill to Acquire Funding

Silverton, CO — Last week, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) spilled over a million gallons of toxic waste into the Animas river in Colorado. This is, of course, ironic considering the fact that the EPA is the government organization that typically prosecutes people for crimes against the environment. In this case, however, the EPA has declared that they are above the law and free from any type of fines or prosecution.

To make matters even worse, the EPA actually had a warning about this a week prior to the disaster. A week prior to the spill, retired geologist Dave Taylor wrote a letter to the editor in “The Silverton Standard” pointing out that the EPA was planning a maneuver that could potentially cause toxins from mineshafts to flood into rivers. He also suggested that the EPA was aware of the possible outcomes, and were going forward with the plan anyway to gain funding.

The health risks associated with unconventional oil and gas drilling (UGOD), i.e. hydraulic fracturing or "fracking," have been of concern to many since the practice became widespread, but until now there has been a shortage of conclusive evidence that such risks actually exist.

A recent study, however, has shown a direct link between fracking activities and health problems in areas where the industry proliferates.

Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University have published a report that is considered to be the "most comprehensive one to date to address the health impact of UGOD."

The findings indicated that there is an increased risk of heart disease, congenital heart defects, neurologic disorders, cancer, skin problems and urologic problems in areas where fracking operations are concentrated.

After 131 years it turns out the Greenwich Meridian Line is in the WRONG place

People have been visiting it for decades but after 131 years it turns out the
Greenwich Meridian Line is in the wrong place.

Researchers have discovered the world famous stainless steel tourist attraction marking Longitude 0 should be in Greenwich Park - and not the Royal Observatory.

It should be 334 feet (or 102 metres) to the east of where the north-south line dividing the eastern and western hemispheres has been since 1884.

This was when countries met in Washington DC to recommend Earth's prime meridian should pass through the Airy Transit Circle, a telescope for measuring star positions.

Named after Sir George Biddell Airy, the 7th Astronomer Royal, it tracked the movement of 'clock stars', stars which never rise or set.

Because these stars are always present in the sky and transit the meridian twice each day their appearance in the telescope cross hairs can be used to set time and longitude.

Fetal Parts Sold for "Scientific Research" on Cosmetics, Flavor Enhancers

Aside from the fact that scientific experimentation on murder victims is immoral, realize also that this is not just about real science. Aborted babies have been used for such things as testing flavor enhancers for food companies and creating anti-aging creams. Developing products such as cosmetics and flavor enhancers are to science as lemon drops and potato chips are to fruits and vegetables.

Mr Clark would then decide on the application instead of the council under the new powers to “fast-track” fracking, which come into effect on Thursday.

Stroke victim spent 20 hours lying unconscious in Sydney hospital

A man in Sydney who suffered a stroke in a hospital toilet spent more than 20 hours lying unconscious on the floor before he was found by a cleaner the next day, local media reports say.

The 67-year-old man had arrived at Sydney's Royal North Shore Hospital on Monday for a routine appointment for his diabetes treatment, Nine News reports.

He failed to present himself to outpatient clinic staff for his appointment and was considered a "no show".

The Daily Mail says his panicked wife called the hospital later in the day when the man failed to return home and she reported him missing when she was told he didn't turn up for his appointment.

The man, who had suffered a stroke, was found on Tuesday when a cleaner discovered him in the toilet cubicle.

He said cleaners normally check the toilets before closing up each day, but for some reason they weren't checked on the day the man collapsed. (Because nobody did???)

Prescription Overdoses Decline in Medical Marijuana States

When certain drugs are outlawed, it doesn’t stop people from wanting those drugs. They either turn to the black market, or try to find some kind of legal substitute for their drug of choice. The pharmaceutical industry is more than willing to fill that niche by producing drugs that, while legal, are often much more harmful, expensive, and addictive than the “street” drugs they replace. That’s probably why the number of Americans who die by overdosing on prescription drugs, has more than doubled since 2001.

Read the label or pay the price if you use herbicides

What happens then is the herbicide does not stay just where it was directed. That is particularly important with anything we apply with a sprayer, whether it is from the end of a hose or a spray bottle. A wind might seem to be drying the product on the leaves, but that is not the only thing happening. The same when it is hot.

The liquid dries, but part of it will often dry into an invisible mist that drifts onto neighboring plants. Unintended damage occurs on nontarget plants. By the time the sudden brown wilt appears, it is too late to do much but hope that the plant has not suffered so much that it cannot recover.

So, take care to direct the spray just where you want it, in the cool of the evening. Guard against applying herbicides to all those plants you spent so much energy growing.
