Anti-vaxxers are as dangerous to global health as HIV, doctor declares as rates of exemptions soar in the US

A Maryland doctor has warned that vaccine skepticism could lead to a global health crisis as big as HIV.

In an op-ed for USA Today, Dr Amesh Adalja, of Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security, says people may be surprised that the World Health Organization (WHO) named anti-vaxxers one of the top 10 threats to global health in 2019.

'Surely, vaccine hesitancy - a voluntarily chosen human behavior - cannot be in the same category as HIV, a virus that has killed 35 million people,' he wrote.

The magnetic North Pole is hurtling towards Siberia so quickly scientists have had to release new data a year ahead of schedule to keep navigation systems working properly

Earth's magnetic North Pole has been wildly shifting towards Russia so quickly that scientists have been forced to publish an update on its actual location a year early.

The World Magnetic Model (WMM) enables compasses to point north and is used in navigation systems. Its latest update revealed the North Magnetic Pole is wandering about 34 miles a year. It crossed the international dateline in 2017 and is leaving the Canadian Arctic on its way to Siberia.

This is causing a navigational nightmare for compasses in smartphones, boats and for airport navigators as well as in some consumer electronics, and WMM was forced to update a year early in order to keep it accurate.

Harvard prof doesn't back down from claims that alien spacecraft may be zipping past Jupiter orbit

A distinguished Harvard University professor is not backing down from his claims that a piece of extraterrestrial spacecraft technology may be flying past the orbit of Jupiter at this moment.

Avi Loeb, one of the top astronomy professors in the world, boasting of decades of Ivy League professorships and hundreds of publicized works in respected astronomy publications, is remaining defiant that the space object – dubbed as “Oumuamua” – first noticed by Hawaiian astronomers in 2017 could be from another civilization.

“Considering an artificial origin, one possibility is that ‘Oumuamua is a lightsail, floating in interstellar space as a debris from an advanced technological equipment,” Loeb and his colleague Shmuel Bialy wrote in Astrophysical Journal Letters in November, according to the Washington Post.

ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR EXPLAINS HOW BIG PHARMA COMPLETELY OWNS CONGRESS

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s pesticide Round Up, is a perfect example, as science has been showing for decades how incredibly harmful it is for human health and the environment, yet it’s approved as ‘safe’ for use in the western world. It’s no mystery why glyphosate is illegal in the majority of countries around the world. The same goes for genetically modified foods, which is what Round Up was designed to be used on. Years ago, a lawsuit forced the FDA to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods.

“As part of the process, they portrayed the various concerns as merely the ignorant opinions of misinformed individuals – and derided them as not only unscientific, but anti-science. They then set to work to convince the public and government officials, through the dissemination of false information, that there was an overwhelming expert consensus, based on solid evidence, that GMOs were safe.” – Jane Goodall.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the most horrific perversions of the system that allows chemicals like glyphosate to become part of the "food chain" we eat, not to mention our children are eating.

Please, be part of the solution by educating the managers of the places you go to find food, that their parent companies may well be indicted in a class action lawsuit, for carrying this chemical, or others with the potential for causing great harm to the people who consume them.

Synthetic Shock – From Dirty Electricity to 5G

We are by nature electric; but the man-made ‘synthetic’ variety, that apes nature’s version, is not helping us to live a full and healthy life, but is rather stultifying that condition. In fact Edison, Tesla et al. were not really doing the world a favour when they invented and put to use ‘synthetic electricity’ on this planet.

Outrage after British Museum director says theft of Parthenon Marbles was a ‘creative act’

The British Museum is making headlines again after its director Hartwig Fischer sparked backlash for suggesting that the removal of the Elgin Marbles from Greece in the 1800s was a “creative act” and that they won’t be returned.

In an interview with the Greek daily Ta Nea, Fischer admitted that while you could be “saddened” by the fact that the famous marbles had been removed from their original environment, “this shifting is also a creative act.”

Fischer rejected the idea that Greece was the rightful owner of the Elgin Marbles, saying that the objects in the British Museum's collection “are owned by the museum’s commissioners,” and said perhaps Britain could give them to Greece on “loan” — but only if Athens recognized the museum’s ownership of them.

Addicted to profit? Oxycontin dynasty pushed high doses of addictive painkiller as sales earned them $4BILLION - and wanted to cash in on NARCAN while 235,000 died of overdoses, claims lawsuit

Oxycontin dynasty the Sacklers allegedly pushed high doses of the painkiller and hoped to cash in on anti-overdose drug NARCAN while 235,000 Americans died from the opoid epidemic, according to an unredacted complaint filed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The lawsuit claims that Purdue Pharma and members of the Sackler family knew that patients on higher dosages of OxyContin for long periods were at an increased risk of serious side effects, including addiction, yet they continued to promote the high doses as they yielded the most profit.

A copy of the filing obtained by DailyMail.com shows that from 2008 to 2016, the Sackler family added $4.2 billion to their already massive fortune in profits derived just from the sale of prescription opioids.

Two Men Spent 340 Days in Space. Scientists Are Still Figuring Out What They've Learned

Between March 2015 and March 2016, a man spent a total of 357 hours being poked and prodded: sacrificing blood and urine, sweating through sprints and letting others read his journals — oh, and living on the International Space Station.

The man was Scott Kelly, and with his Russian counterpart, Mikhail Kornienko, he spent a total of 340 days living in space as part of NASA's first attempt to understand how such long stints without gravity affect the human body. But while the men returned to Earth nearly three years ago, scientists are still trying to figure out what they've learned. A new paper lays out the tests built into the "One-Year Mission" of Kelly and Kornienko and contextualizes it in the context of longer spaceflight — like that which would required by a mission to Mars, lasting at least two years.

Exclusive: Trump EPA won't limit 2 toxic chemicals in drinking water

The Trump administration will not set a drinking water limit for two toxic chemicals that are contaminating millions of Americans' tap water, two sources familiar with the forthcoming decision told POLITICO.

The expected move is yet another sign of the administration's reluctance to aggressively deal with the chemicals, which have been used for decades in products such as Teflon-coated cookware and military firefighting foam and are present in the bloodstreams of an estimated 98 percent of Americans. And it comes less than a year after the White House and the Environmental Protection Agency faced criticism for delaying publication of a health study on the chemicals, which a White House aide had warned could trigger a "public relations nightmare."

Aspartame may be making you dumb: Study finds that the artificial sweetener disrupts your neurotransmitters

Another study proves that artificial sweeteners like aspartame are harmful to your health. The study, which was published in the African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicines, has revealed that aspartame damages the brain. In particular, consuming this chemical sweetener for a long time will increase oxidative stress in the brain tissue and will disrupt neurotransmitters that are important in physiological functions.

Winter Is Wreaking Havoc On Electric Vehicles

If there’s one thing electric vehicle owners are learning, it is that extremely cold temperatures are likely going to lead to frustration if they don’t take extra special care of their battery powered vehicles. Look at it as just another added benefit to "saving the world".

As we push through the cold that automakers are using as an excuse for poor sales this winter, customers of some companies – notably Tesla – are starting to realize that things are a little bit different with electric vehicles in the winter. Disgruntled owners of Model 3s have been widespread on social media and online forums, talking about numerous issues they’ve had with cold weather on their vehicles. People have complained about battery range draining and Model 3 door handles freezing up.

Revealed: How Afghanistan’s bloodiest summer is STILL claiming lives of British troops 10 years on as veterans are killing themselves in alarming numbers with the suicide rate in one army company a shocking 200 TIMES the average

The suicide rate for the men of C Company who were in Sangin in July 2009, approximately 80 soldiers in total, is more than 200 times higher than the average rate for men in the UK – 15.5 per 100,000 – which stands at its lowest level since records began.

At least three other servicemen who were with 2 Rifles in 2009 have also been found dead in the UK, as have two other young soldiers who served with 2 Rifles on its next Afghan tour. Others in the unit have carried out non-fatal self-harm.

The most recent veteran to die was father-of-two Corporal Jonny Cole, who made a number of suicide attempts before succeeding.

Former UFC fighter mourns death of son who was KILLED by MMR vaccine

On January 10, 2017, Catone brought young Nicholas in to see the family’s pediatrician for a “Well Visit,” during which the infant was given both the MMR vaccine and the Hib (Haemophilus influenzae type B) vaccine. The very next day, young Nicholas went from being a happy, smiling little boy to a clearly vaccine-damaged victim of Big Pharma corruption – and he died not long after that.

Photos shared by Catone show Nicholas in his healthy state prior to getting vaccinated, as well as post-vaccine photos in which young Nicholas appears confused, traumatized, and what Infowars.com writer Adan Salazar describes as a countenance indicative of “neurological trauma.”

Catone directed his Facebook post to young Nicholas directly, expressing sorrow and remorse over his decision to have his son vaccinated.

“Wish i knew what i know now and we were able to put it all together,” Catone wrote.

Once Around the Sun! NASA's Parker Solar Probe Aces 1st Trip Around Our Star

NASA's Parker Solar Probe has completed its first loop around the sun and entered the second of 24 planned orbits.

The spacecraft launched on Aug. 12, 2018, and survived its first close flyby of the sun on Nov. 5 of last year, when it swooped within 15 million miles (24 million kilometers) of the star. As of Jan. 19, the probe has reached its farthest distance from the sun, called aphelion, before it goes in for another close pass on April 4.

The spacecraft has already delivered 17 gigabits of science data from its first orbit, NASA officials said in a statement, and will transmit its full observations from the orbit by April. [NASA's Parker Solar Probe Mission in Pictures]

6 Reasons to Bundle Up and Get Outside During Winter

Brrrr! Winter is here, and if it is chilly in your neck of the woods, you might be tempted to hunker down and stay indoors until Spring arrives.

Winter can really take a toll on our moods, making even the warmest personalities turn as chilly as the air outside. It’s getting dark at 5 pm now, and you might find yourself making excuses to stay inside, bundled up in cozy blankets in front of the fire.

However, staying indoors during the colder months won’t do anything to improve your mood or your health – in fact, research suggests the opposite is true.

You don’t have to spend hours outside to reap the benefits. Just a few minutes a day has been proven to improve mood and physical health.

So, bundle up and get out there!

New U.S. Experiments Aim To Create Gene-Edited Human Embryos

A scientist in New York is conducting experiments designed to modify DNA in human embryos as a step toward someday preventing inherited diseases, NPR has learned.

For now, the work is confined to a laboratory. But the research, if successful, would mark another step toward turning CRISPR, a powerful form of gene editing, into a tool for medical treatment.

A Chinese scientist sparked international outrage in November when he announced that he had used the same technique to create the world's first gene-edited human babies. He said his goal was to protect them from infection with HIV, a claim that was criticized because there are safe, effective and far less controversial ways of achieving that goal.

CHINA’S MOON LANDER WAKES UP FROM ITS LONG, ULTRA-COLD NIGHT

WE ALREADY KNOW it’s chilly on the moon. A lunar night lasts 14 Earth days, and its temperatures can dip into a cold so punishing it makes the polar vortex look like a hot tub. But yesterday, China’s space agency announced that the frigidity of the lunar night is even more intense than we’d thought: The country’s Chang’e 4 spacecraft recorded an icy low of –310 degrees Fahrenheit (–190 degrees Celsius).

Consisting of a stationary lander and a six-wheeled rover named Yutu-2, Chang’e 4 landed on the far side of the moon earlier this month—a first for any spacecraft. During its first lunar night, Chang’e 4 went into hibernation, relying on internal heat sources to survive.

Phantom investigation? France delays report on mystery cases of babies born without arms

France's public health agency has postponed the release of a report on an investigation into the abnormal numbers of babies being born without arms in rural regions — a medical mystery which has baffled experts.
Three infants were born with no arms between June and November 2016 within a 30km radius of Vitrolles in the Bouches-du-Rhône region. That followed another cluster of cases near the area of Ain, where eight babies were born with the defect within a 17 km radius. Similar cases have also been observed in other regions of rural France.

A nationwide investigation into the phenomenon began last October and the government had promised an update by January 31, but that date was suddenly pushed back — and the parents of affected children are becoming impatient and suspicious.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am betting here on the drug glyphosate, which is the basis drug for "Round Up Weed Killer", may well prove the culprit.

And I am also betting that the French government wants to cover this up, bigtime, because of the massive amounts of both individual and class action lawsuits about how this chemical has impacted lives of those exposed to it, and that it was a French researcher, Seralini, who found the link between glyphosate and illness.

Weed-Whacking Herbicide Proves Deadly to Human Cells, 2009

Seralini's research came out in 2009; the dates of these malformations were noted in pregnancies in 2018; my best guess is that those politicians who took money from Monsanto certainly didn't want any causation linkage be made public, because of the horrific drop one would see in demand and usage, and the potential for a class action lawsuit against both Monsanto, and the French government.

One Of The Biggest At-Home DNA Testing Companies Is Secretly Sharing Data With The FBI

Just one week ago, we warned that the government — helped by Congress (which adopted legislation allowing police to collect and test DNA immediately following arrests), President Trump (who signed the Rapid DNA Act into law), the courts (which have ruled that police can routinely take DNA samples from people who are arrested but not yet convicted of a crime), and local police agencies (which are chomping at the bit to acquire this new crime-fighting gadget) — was embarking on a diabolical campaign to create a nation of suspects predicated on a massive national DNA database.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although I would be interesting to learn some of the background of my heritage, I would not use one of these services for precisely this reason.

This represents an absolute abolition, by the Federal Government, of the 4th Amendment, which (used to, at least theoretically), prevent Americans from having to deal with unreasonable search and seizure.

And in a companion story:

Genetics firm gives law enforcement free run of profiles without users’ permission

This is, by the way, not the firm mentioned above; however, if these two rivals are doing this, one can reason that almost all the DNA testing companies are doing this.

So if you are still thinking about having DNA work done, please find out if the company doing the testing has a legitimate, "opt out" form for you to have signed, and notarized.

Acetaminophen found to be a potent liver toxin… and it’s the No. 1 ingredient in Tylenol

Acetaminophen is a popular over-the-counter pain reliever also sold under the brand name Tylenol. The accessibility of acetaminophen and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) lends credence to pharma industry’s claims that these drugs are safe. But research has consistently shown that acetaminophen and other NSAIDs can be quite dangerous.

Statistics show that acetaminophen is the leading cause of liver failure in the United States. Even just taking a higher-than-recommended dose of acetaminophen for several days can be enough to cause damage to the liver. While Big Pharma may promote acetaminophen and other NSAIDS as being “harmless” drugs, there is overwhelming evidence that this is a myth.

TV news anchor announces over 90 out of 124 cases of measles in NY “epidemic” are vaccinated

When we report on what a news anchor states or a news source says, it’s always risky. Hence the reason we always put in the headline we are quoting from; you never know, things could change- it’s a chance all journalists take.

Case in point: we couldn’t believe our eyes today when the famous TV anchor, who used to be with CNN then CBS and now has a show on ABC to millions, posted about this story. That’s right, two-time, Emmy Award-winning Sharyl Attkisson posted this report.

Then we saw one of the oldest vaccine non-profits in the country, the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), from Washington, DC share this news as well. It had nearly 700 likes in a few minutes (it appears they shared it from the famous news anchor’s page). So we did an article about her reporting this news on her page and it went viral (no pun intended).

Scientists Visit a Rare New Island They Watched Grow Out of the Waves

A NASA scientist has visited a four-year-old island that satellites watched rise out of the waters — a rare opportunity to see in person a new island that lasts more than a few months.

Near the end of December 2014, scientists realized satellites were spotting a volcanic plume from territory within the nation of Tonga in the Pacific Ocean. By the end of January 2015, the eruption was over — and new land stretched between two older, small islands called Hunga Tonga and Hunga Ha'apai. (This third small island is referred to unofficially as Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai.)

Dan Slayback, a scientist at NASA who focuses on using remote sensing data, watched the eruption unfurl and started plotting a way to see the new land in person. And in October, he and a team of scientists arrived. [Photos: Mars Volcano Views Revealed by Spacecraft]

Magnitude 6.6 Earthquake Rocks Southern Mexico, Sways Buildings 550 Miles Away in Mexico City

A strong earthquake jolted southern Mexico on Friday, rattling nerves and swaying tall buildings hundreds of miles away in the capital, but there were no reports of serious damage, injuries or deaths.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported that the quake had a magnitude of 6.6. It was centered about 10 miles (16 kilometers) from the city of Tapachula in Chiapas state and struck at a depth of 40 miles (68 kilometers).

Chiapas civil defense official Arturo Barrientos told The Associated Press that there were no reports of serious damage and authorities were monitoring the situation.

Barrientos said cracks appeared in a wall at an elementary school in the state capital, Tuxtla Gutierrez, but the children were evacuated safely.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr Explains How Big Pharma Completely Owns Congress

Those of you who have been involved in the past in the battle to protect our children from poorly made vaccines or toxic chemicals in our food or in our water know the power of these industries and how they’ve undermined every institution in our democracy that is supposed to protect little children from powerful, greedy corporations. Even the pharmaceutical companies have been able to purchase congress. They’re the largest lobbying entity in Washington D.C.. They have more lobbyists in Washington D.C. than there are congressman and senators combined. They give twice to congress what the next largest lobbying entity is, which is oil and gas… Imagine the power they exercise over both republicans and democrats. They’ve captured them (our regulatory agencies) and turned them into sock puppets. They’ve compromised the press… and they destroy the publications that publish real science. (Robert F.

The study, which was published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, analyzed information of eight million women aged 25 to 29 taken from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey between 2007 and 2014. The data showed that 60 percent of the women who didn’t get the vaccine had gotten pregnant at least once, while just 35 percent of those who did get the shot had conceived. Three quarters of married women who didn’t get the shot were able to conceive, versus just half of those who did get the jab.

Ebola Outbreak In DRC Continues To Worsen: “It Is Absolutely Vital That We Are Prepared”

The recent outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo is the second worst in recorded history. So far, 743 people have been infected with the virus and 461 of those have died.

In just one day, the DRC recorded 7 new cases of Ebola. There are now 174 cases remain under investigation, which is up from 161 yesterday. Four of the new cases were reported in Katwa, the latest hot spot in the outbreak that has swept across North Kivu and Ituri provinces in the DRC during the past 6 months. According to the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, one of the two deaths confirmed today was a community death in Katwa. Community deaths, which take place outside of a hospital or Ebola treatment center, raise the risk of Ebola transmission.

Childhood Vaccination Schedules Are Completely Out of Control and Dangerous!

Up, up and away!

This pretty much describes the CDC Childhood Immunization Schedule since 1950.

On February 1, 2016, the insanity continued as the CDC hiked the childhood immunization schedule even further by adding another 3 vaccinations and lowering the age for the first HPV jab (Gardasil) to 9 years old. The total is now an outrageous 74 doses (53 injections) by age 17, an increase of 24X since 1950.

Have our children become pin cushions of profit for the drug companies? Here’s the breakdown. You decide.

In 1950, there were 3 childhood vaccines typically given when a child entered school.

In 1983, there were 10 recommended vaccines by the age of 6 years old (24 doses, 7 injections, 4 oral doses for polio).

In 2010, the CDC vax schedule totaled 68 doses with more than half given by the time a child was only a year and a half old.

In 2016, the schedule has increased to 74 doses by age 17 with 53 injections and 3 oral doses of rotavirus.

Patients should remain free to choose kratom

The herbal supplement known as kratom has become a popular over-the-counter alternative treatment for chronic pain. Some people also claim it’s effective at alleviating symptoms of coughing, diarrhea, fatigue, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress. Although the Food and Drug Administration has claimed to link kratom to a few dozen overdose deaths, the National Institute on Drug Abuse points out that those cases involve adulterated doses and multiple drug interactions. There appear to be no clear cases of fatal overdose on kratom alone. No matter how many people use kratom safely and effectively, however, regulators focus only on the possibility of abuse. Their solution? Prohibition, of course.

Whales that beach themselves are actually 'scared to death' by SONAR

The mystery behind why beaked whales are 'suicidal' may have finally been solved.

Every bite you take is either FIGHTING disease or FEEDING it

It used to be true that conventional food that was not processed had plenty of vitamins and minerals to help your body fuel immunity, energy, and brain function. Not any more. The “gray area” between toxic food and organic food has been wiped out and no longer exists. The so-called “Big Food” corporations in America, working in tandem with biotechnology firms, have bastardized conventional food to the extent that it’s all poison to the human body now, and not the kind of poison that kills you overnight, but rather over time.

OxyContin Maker Explored Expansion Into “Attractive” Anti-Addiction Market

By David Armstrong

Secret portions of a lawsuit allege that Purdue Pharma, controlled by the Sackler family, considered capitalizing on the addiction treatment boom — while going to extreme lengths to boost sales of its controversial opioid.

Not content with billions of dollars in profits from the potent painkiller OxyContin, its maker explored expanding into an “attractive market” fueled by the drug’s popularity — treatment of opioid addiction, according to previously secret passages in a court document filed by the state of Massachusetts...

U.S. judge to allow controversial evidence in Roundup cancer trials

A federal judge overseeing lawsuits alleging Bayer AG's glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer causes cancer on Monday tentatively allowed pieces of controversial evidence that the company had hoped to exclude from upcoming trials.

U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria during a hearing in San Francisco federal court called his decision "probably most disappointing for Monsanto," the Bayer unit that manufactures the world's most widely used herbicide.

The company denies allegations that glyphosate causes cancer and says decades of independent studies have shown the chemical to be safe for human use.

Chhabria on Monday said plaintiffs could introduce some evidence of Monsanto's alleged attempts to ghostwrite studies and influence the findings of scientists and regulators during the first phase of upcoming trials. He said documents which showed the company taking a position on the science or a study introduced during the first phase were "super relevant."

The antibiotics that cure your infection — but leave you in pain

One class — known as quinolones and fluoroquinolones — is commonly used to treat everything from chest infections to urinary tract bugs.

Ciprofloxacin, a fluoroquinolone, is the most prescribed of these. Others include levofloxacin, moxifloxacin and norfloxacin.

GPs like the fact they can tackle a wide range of bacteria. In 2017, it’s estimated that more than 675,000 quinolones and fluoroquinolones were dispensed by GPs and other practitioners in England alone, and about the same amount again in hospitals.

But there have been claims the drugs can have devastating side-effects, such as tendon rupture, joint problems and nerve pain. It’s thought that because fluoroquinolones act on the mitochondria (powerhouses in cells responsible for releasing energy), effects can be felt all over the body, sometimes permanently.
