CONGRESS TO GIVE JEFF SESSIONS MORE POWER TO BAN WHATEVER SUBSTANCE HE DOESN'T LIKE

Allowing government to arbitrarily determine which substances human beings can put into their own bodies is one of the most idiotic things a society can do. As such, its no surprise Congress is salivating at the prospect of furthering this travesty by giving additional discretion on the matter to drug war-crazed loon, Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

If you think the Department of Justice has more than enough tools to wage the war on drugs, a bill passed by the House would create a fast-track scheduling system that could lead to the criminalization of kratom, nootropics, and pretty much anything that gives you a buzz and isn’t already illegal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder both what Sessions is worth, How much is Jeff Sessions worth and how much of that comes from investments/endorsements from the pharaceutical industries.

He is also very much a friend of the private prison industry:

Trump Administration brings back private prison industries, 2017

I am certain that many of those people, many of them Vets, just trying to get relief from long-term pain, with some of these substances, will find themselves incarcerated at some of these facilities, so Sessions' "good buds" in the private prison industry will profit handsomely, as a result of this legislation.

Mystery of the massive explosion 200 million light years away: Strange flash 100 times brighter than a supernova that is growing at an incredible rate baffles scientists

A massive explosion spotted 200 million light years from Earth has baffled astronomers.

The strange spot, nicknamed 'the cow', is up to 100 times brighter than a supernova and is growing at an incredible rate.

Scientists say the flash is a 9,000°C (16,000°F) cloud of high-energy particles bursting outwards at 12,000 miles (20,000km) per second, but are still unsure what triggered the brilliant blast.

One researcher said 'there hasn't really been another object like this.'

Money really ISN'T everything: Getting too much cash can damage your judgement and make you overconfident, claim scientists

Despite having their pick of the world's top designers, many wealthy celebrities still manage to dress badly.

According to new research, this could be because they have so much cash that they become overconfident and more are likely to make poor judgements.

Money makes them so sure they're right, they stop bothering to take useful feedback from other people.

This may be fine on the red carpet, but in high-stake situations such as in hospitals or in finance, offering people lots of money could mean they are more likely to take risks, scientists warned.

Rosetta's kamikaze crash into a comet revealed: Final images from the probe reveals its last moments

Landslides are not unique to Earth, researchers have revealed.

In 2015, Europe's Rosetta spacecraft witnessed - and photographed - a big one on the surface of a comet in deep, dark space.

The cliffside collapse created about 2,000 tonnes of rubble, 99 percent of which settled at the foot of the precipice.

'We are talking about a volume of 22 thousand cubic meters (777,000 cubic feet) of rock that fell down here,' lead researcher Dr Maurizio Pajola, an astronomer from the Nasa Ames Research Centre in California, told MailOnline.

'The volume that fell down is equivalent to around nine full Olympic size pools.'

Shouldn't this collapse have revealed lots of ice?

THE STATUE OF LIBERTY POEM IS NOW A WEAPON IN AMERICA’S CULTURE WAR

Lazarus was neither a Founding Father nor a towering figure in American history. Her words have never been law and her poem is not attached to the Constitution. It’s simply the expression of one 19th century socialist. The poem wasn’t even placed on the Statue of Liberty when the monument was unveiled in 1886, which of course was a gift from France to the United States.

The idea that Lazarus’s poem is somehow equivalent to the Constitution, the Declaration or the writings of the Founders is ridiculous. Nor has American migration resembled the picture Lazarus describes in her writing.

'Ten times cheaper': Russian space company testing iodine rocket engine

Engineers have patented a method of using iodine for electric-powered spacecraft propulsion, the Energia Space and Rocket Corporation said on Thursday. The company, based in the Moscow region, is the nation’s main builder of space rockets and components for the International Space Station (ISS). It said the idea to use ‘pure’ iodine for space exploration was first proposed in the 90s, but thorough research started only several years ago.

Solid iodine is easy to store, can be quickly converted into gas, and is cost-effective, compared to xenon which typically serves as propellant in electric-powered propulsion engines. Switching to iodine can potentially make the process “ten times cheaper’, while the engine itself will be smaller and less heavy, the company said. Furthermore, xenon-run engines are incapable of long-distance flights, like going to the Moon.

The Entire Western World Lives In Cognitive Dissonance

Millions of people have been separated from families by death inflicted by Washington, and for almost two decades protests have been almost nonexistent. No public outcry stopped George W. Bush, Obama, and Trump from clear and indisputable illegal acts defined in international law established by the US itself as war crimes against the inhabitants of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Syria, Yemen, and Somalia. We can add to this an eighth example: The military attacks by the US armed and supported neo-Nazi puppet state of Ukraine against the breakaway Russian provinces.

The massive deaths, destruction of towns, cities, infrastructure, the maiming, physical and mental, the dislocation that has sent millions of refugees fleeing Washington’s wars to overrun Europe, where governments consist of a collection of idiot stooges who supported Washington’s massive war crimes in the Middle East and North Africa, produced no outcry comparable to Trump’s immigration policy.

A detained immigrant has contracted chickenpox in California prison holding 1,000 asylum seekers

A detained immigrant has contracted chickenpox in one of the facilities at the center of Trump's latest crackdown on asylum seekers.

The person is one of 1,000 immigrants who was recently moved to Victorville, a federal prison complex in California - all of whom were medically screened on entry.

On June 18, officials sent out a warning to 800 staff saying the person had contracted varicella (chickenpox) while behind bars, and was now in isolation, according to a letter obtained by LAist.

The diagnosis came just days after prison workers held a protest calling for more staff at the medical unit.

Kilauea's eruption is reshaping Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Say goodbye to the popular lava lake

“You could drive up to the [Jaggar Museum], get out of your car, walk to the overlook, and view a beautiful lava lake overflowing,” park superintendent Cindy Orlando said. “That was an incredible visitor experience, and you really didn’t have to work real hard to get it.”

With the recent volcanic activity, that lava lake has receded underground. It is now sealed off by countless tons of rock that have fallen into the caldera as portions of the surrounding Halemaumau Crater continue to collapse.

“Will it [the lava lake] ever happen again? Probably, but not in my lifetime,” Orlando said.

James Mattis Is a War Criminal: I Experienced His Attack on Fallujah Firsthand

While reporting from inside Fallujah during that siege, I personally witnessed women, children, elderly people and ambulances being targeted by US snipers under Mattis' command. Needless to say, all of these are war crimes.

During the November siege of Fallujah later that same year, which I also covered first-hand, more than 5,000 Iraqi civilians were killed. Most were buried in mass graves in the aftermath of the siege.

Mosques were deliberately targeted by the US military, hospitals bombed, medical workers detained, ambulances shot at, cease-fires violated, media repressed, and the use of depleted uranium was widespread. All of these are, again, war crimes.

Op-Ed: James 'Mad Dog' Mattis, war criminal

Once Operation Vigilant Resolve, also known as the First Battle of Fallujah, began on April 4, however, Mattis' concerns were overridden by the military mandate to get the job done as quickly and with as little loss of American life as possible.

Four days into the offensive, women, children and elderly residents were allowed to leave the besieged city, but males over the age of 14 were not. Families faced the horrific choice of splitting up or staying together to face the fury of the invading Marines.
It was some fury. According to witnesses and survivors of the assault, Marines indiscriminately killed men, women, children, the elderly and disabled alike. Civilians waving white flags of surrender were cut down by snipers, who also targeted ambulances carrying the wounded and dying to the few functioning clinics not destroyed by U.S. bombs.

Rape And Abuse of Japanese Women By American Soldiers During WW2

Japanese historian Oshiro Masayasu writes about the large scale rape by American soldiers in Okinawa in 1945. He reports the incident at a village in Motobu peninsula where GIs landed and found only women, children and old folks there. What followed was abominable. There was a hunt in broad daylight for Japanese women who were ravaged mercilessly.

Allied soldiers 'raped hundreds of thousands of German women' after WW2

Hundreds of thousands of German women were raped by British, American and French soldiers after the end of the Second World War, a German historian has claimed.

In a new book, Professor Miriam Gerhardt, a well-regarded German academic, challenges the established view that Soviet troops were responsible for the vast majority of rape cases in occupied Germany.

“The assumption that Western Allied soldiers would not do such a thing turned out not to be true,” she said, to the broadcaster Deutsche Welle. “In the method and violence of rap there was no different between American GIs and the Red Army, as far as I can see.”

The GIs who raped France: We know about the mass rape of German women by Stalin's soldiers. Now a new book reveals American troops committed thousands of rapes on French women they were 'liberating'

While the Germans had French girlfriends,the American military had a different approach.

As Professor Roberts says: ‘My book seeks to debunk an old myth about the GI, thought of as a manly creature that always behaved well — the GIs were having sex anywhere and everywhere.’

In total, it is estimated that some 14,000 women were raped by American GIs in Western Europe from 1942 to 1945. In France, 152 American soldiers were tried for rape, of whom 29 were hanged.

‘Normandy women launched a wave of rape accusations against American soldiers,’ Roberts writes, ‘threatening to destroy the erotic fantasy at the heart of the operation. The spectre of rape transformed the GI from rescuer-warrior to violent intruder’.

Cocaine flushed into rivers by humans is causing endangered eels to get high and damaging their ability to reproduce

Experts have long been suspicious the presence of illegal drugs could have a harmful effect on the eels.

Now researchers have confirmed their theory, proving the Class A stimulant alters the shape and function of muscles in the marine animals who get high on the drug.

In some cases, this may be enough to endanger their natural reproductive cycle, by hindering the long swims they undertake to reach spawning grounds.

Weapons of Mass Migration

In Goodbye Europe? Hello, Chaos? – Merkel’s Migrant Bomb, Michael Springmann analyzes evidence suggesting that US intelligence may be organizing the mass migration of millions of refugees as a form of asymmetric warfare.

Springmann also quotes anonymous intelligence sources who claim the mass migration into Europe is being coordinated by the US National Intelligence Council (NIC), MI6 (Britain’s secret intelligence service) and Turkish secret services, with financing from Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states. He also alleges routine collaboration between CIA case officers and human rights and pro-migrant groups to pay off people smugglers.

I have often wondered how hundreds of thousands of unskilled workers from a broken Syrian economy could come up with the $5,000-10,000 smugglers charge to ferry migrants across the Mediterranean.

Vaccine authoritarians try to censor billboard that dares ask, “Do you know what’s in a vaccine?”

Do you know what’s in vaccines — or perhaps more importantly, is it “wrong” to ask such a question? LearnTheRisk.org, a non-profit organization founded by an ex-Merck employee, put up a billboard in Perth, Australia, which asked one important question: “Do you know what’s in a vaccine?” It’s a simple question, yet astonishingly few people know the answer to this question.

In response, the Australian Medical Association has demanded that this thought-provoking billboard be removed. The vaccine propaganda group says that even raising such a simple question is a “public health risk,” “misleading” and “conspiracy theory garbage.”

I Remember When America Was A Free Country

I remember when America was a free country. You could get on an airliner without an ID. Driving licenses didn’t even have photos. If a friend was coming through your city on a flight and had a few hours layover, you could meet them inside the airport for lunch or dinner. You could meet friends, children, and relatives at the gate or see them off at the gate. Parents could actually put children on the plane and grandparents could take them off.

Your flight ticket was good at any airline. If something happened to your flight or you missed it, you could use the ticket on another airline going to the same place. On international flights you were permitted two free stopovers prior to your destination. If you were going to Athens, Greece, for example, you could first visit Paris and then Rome. It worked both ways, over and back. So one air ticket, six cities.

Hawaii volcano eruption: Lava INCREASE from Kilauea causing FASTER flows on Big Island

Hawaii volcano Kilauea has been feeding a large torrent of molten hot lava leading to the ocean at Kapoho Bay since May 3.

Revealing aerial footage from the US Geological Survey (USGS) shows the river of magma streaming down Kilauea's vent at a speed of 17 mph – an increase of 2 mph from previous recordings.

The video also shows standing waves of lava forming in the channel near the vent giving way to slow-moving pahoehoe – a form of basaltic lava capable of maintaining high temperatures for tens of kilometres from the vent.

USGS said the vigour of the eruption had increased as the temperature of lava had risen causing a smoother magmatic flow.

Hawaii farmers risk lava and toxic air to save their produce after Kilauea volcano

Rusty and Jenny Perry fled their home in Hawaii's Big island last month to escape bubbling lava following the Kilauea volcano eruption.

The couple grows lychee, bananas and papaya on their farm in Kapoho. When they evacuated, they missed shipments of produce to other parts of the state. And with that came lost income.

"It's just waiting there, waiting to be picked," Jenny Perry told CNN affiliate Hawaii News Now.

But even as their produce awaits, they've been sneaking onto the farm to salvage what they can. To avoid the dangers associated with lava, they've been using an entrance through their neighbor's land and back roads.

The former president redirected America’s space agency from pioneering the future in space exploration and scientific discovery to advancing his so-called social justice agenda — push radical global warming extremism and Muslim outreach.

A groundbreaking study CONFIRMS that a common vaccine additive is linked to autism-like behavior

It’s no secret that the aluminum adjuvants used to make vaccines more potent is toxic; so injecting metal into your body usually isn’t the best of ideas, now is it? But few have dared to go against the grain and take a deeper look at just how bad aluminum really is when its used in vaccine preparations. While it’s been proven to be neurotoxic, for some reason, Big Pharma has continued to get away with including aluminum as a vaccine ingredient for years — and no one has dared to speak out about the very real threat it poses. But now, research from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada is pointing the finger at aluminum — and you’ll never guess what it’s been linked to: Autism.

The sickening truth about disinfecting wipes: They are made from toxic ingredients that can cause cancer

Just what is in these pesticide wipes that you’re spreading all over your kitchen and other important surfaces on the pretense of “good health”?

Most of them contain toxic quaternary ammonium compounds. Also known as “quats,” these compounds can cause allergies and asthma, and they can irritate your lungs, eyes and skin. If you see terms like “Alkyl C12-18,” “Alkyl C12-14,” or “n-Alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride” on the ingredients list, it’s time to start shopping for a replacement. Quats have also been linked to reproductive problems.

Some wipes contain cancer-causing ortho-phenylphenyl. Premoistened wipes contain chemicals like parabens and formaldehyde releasers to stop bacteria from growing within the package. If your wipes contain chlorine bleach, you should know that it’s been linked to asthma.

U.S. HEALTHCARE RANKED WORST IN THE DEVELOPED WORLD. AND YET, WE SPEND FAR MORE ON HEALTHCARE THAN ANYONE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD

Of the eleven developed nations evaluated by the Commonwealth Fund, the United States comes in dead last on healthcare.

Every three years, the Commonwealth Fund releases a report ranking the healthcare systems of 11 of the world’s developed nation. And every three years, it seems, the United States comes in dead last.

Last released in 2017, the report showed for the sixth time that the U.S. healthcare system is in dire need of a makeover, citing the inequity of access as the most glaring problem.

Via Newsweek:

The Commonwealth Fund focused on care process, access, administrative efficiency, equity and health care outcomes, studying 72 indicators within those fields. The 11 countries analyzed were Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get my head around this; the US pays the most for its healthcare, yet has the worst outcome, of the countries studied.

13 Facts the Media ‘Pros’ Don’t Want You to Know About ‘Family Border Separation’

Trump’s Only Choice Is to Separate Illegal Alien Families
When an illegal alien crosses the border into the U.S., he is a lawbreaker, and, like any lawbreaker (including American citizens), he is put into the criminal justice system.

This is the law.

Obviously, when an illegal alien is in custody, he is housed in an adult detention center. For obvious reasons, it would be illegal for Trump to “reunite” this family by allowing children to live in adult detention centers.

Keep in mind that when we are this early in the process, we do not even know if this is a real family unit. It is not uncommon for illegal aliens (including criminals) to pretend the children they are traveling with are their own. They do so in the hope this special family status will result in them being released (this madness is known as “catch and release”) into America with nothing more than a court date — a date many never show for, most especially those with criminal intent.

Upgrade to boost capacity of CERN's giant particle smasher

A major upgrade began on Friday for the world's most powerful proton smasher to increase the number of particle collisions inside the Large Hadron Collider and help further explore the fundamental building blocks of the universe.
The work involves heavy civil engineering at the LHC's two main sites in Switzerland and France which are run by Europe's physics lab CERN, that will allow it to operate in a high-luminosity mode from 2026.

"By 2026, this major upgrade will have considerably improved the performance of the LHC, by increasing the number of collisions in the large experiments and thus boosting the probability of the discovery of new physics phenomena," CERN said.

The aim is increase tenfold the amount of data which can be picked up by the LHC, which is housed in a 27-kilometre (17-mile) ring-shaped tunnel buried more than 100 metres underground that runs beneath the border of Switzerland and France.

Russia to Deliver US New Rocket Engines As Trump Creates Space Force

The US government is slated to receive one of two batches of Russian-made rocket engines in the second quarter of 2018, according to a leading Russian rocket designer, at nearly the same point when the newly created US Space Force is being established as a new branch of the US armed forces.

The engines are used for delivering heavy payloads to space aboard the Atlas V launch vehicle — which will now presumptively fall under US Space Force, a sixth branch of the US armed forces announced by US President Donald Trump on Monday. "We have the Air Force and we're going to have the Space Force. Separate but equal." The US military's space command was formerly designated under the US Air Force's area of responsibility.

Blue Origin Tests Rocket Engine as US Seeks to Replace Russian RD-180

The new engine has been in development for seven years already. The US space program currently relies on the RD-180 engine to propel the Atlas V rocket, the only American vehicle capable of sending heavy payloads into orbit.

American aerospace company Blue Origin has released video footage showing a recent test of its Blue Engine 4 (BE-4) next-generation rocket engine, which is planned to replace the Russian-produced RD-180 engine in future American space launches.

During the test, Blue Origin managed to exceed its specific impulse targets (Isp), the company said in a Twitter post. Specific impulse is a measure indicating how effectively a jet engine uses fuel.

The company also said it continues "to exercise the deep throttling of our full scale 550,000 lbf BE-4, the reusability of our hydrostatic pump bearings and our stable start/stop cycles."

Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes and former president Balwani charged by feds with wire fraud

Elizabeth Holmes, the college dropout who founded the blood-testing company Theranos, and the firm's ex-president Ramesh "Sunny" Balwani were indicted Friday on criminal charges related to false claims they made about the accuracy of their much-hyped testing devices.

Both Holmes, who stepped down as CEO of the financially crippled company earlier Friday, and Balwani appeared in U.S. District Court in San Jose, California, for arraignment on two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and nine counts of wire fraud.

Both Holmes and Balwani, who surrendered Friday to the FBI, were released on $500,000 bond each and ordered to surrender their passports at the arraignment, which was attended by Holmes' parents.

The indictment accuses Holmes, 34, and then 53-year-old Balwani of engaging in a multimillion-dollar scheme to defraud investors, and a separate scheme to defraud doctors and patients.

Cancer-suffering groundsman, 46, who has months to live will testify against Roundup in first ever trial over the weedkiller's links to cancer

In 2014, Dewayne Johnson was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer that starts in the white bloods cells

He believes that weed killer Roundup is what caused the cancer and is the first to take its maker, Monsanto, to trial

A chemical called glyphosate is the main ingredient and has been listed by the World Health Organization and California as cancerous

Monsanto says more than 800 studies that have established Roundup's safety

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The studies here are bogus; animals fed roundup-ready corn, were never harvested after 90 days, because it is after the 90 days when the problems start to come up.

Seralini wins Landfall Defamation Lawsuit
His original study was published, then Monsanto got it retracted, and he sued to get his professional reputation back, after Monsanto's retraction.

I hope this lawsuit will go favorably in Dewayne Johnson's favor, but I doubt it will; unfortunately, the odds are very much stacked against him. I just hope and pray that whoever is persuing this lawsuit, understands what Dr. Seralini's research actually means, in terms of the law suit which Mr. Johnson has filed.

Now MORE experts claim statins are a waste of time: They say studies show cutting bad cholesterol fails to slash heart risk 

Millions of patients are being misled about the pros and cons of statins, experts claimed last night.

Accusing the medical establishment of perpetuating a ‘great cholesterol con’, they questioned whether statin pills are as effective as claimed.

The group of doctors, from Britain, the US, France and Ireland, said the very theory on which statins are based – that lowering ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol cuts heart disease – is ‘fundamentally flawed’.

Mount Everest, the high-altitude rubbish dump

Decades of commercial mountaineering have turned Mount Everest into the world's highest rubbish dump as an increasing number of big-spending climbers pay little attention to the ugly footprint they leave behind.

Fluorescent tents, discarded climbing equipment, empty gas canisters and even human excrement litter the well-trodden route to the summit of the 8,848-metre (29,029-foot) peak.

"It is disgusting, an eyesore," Pemba Dorje Sherpa, who has summited Everest 18 times, told AFP. "The mountain is carrying tonnes of waste."

As the number of climbers on the mountain has soared -- at least 600 people have scaled the world's highest peak so far this year alone -- the problem has worsened.

Studies Based on Three Continents Show Higher Than Recommended Doses of Vitamin D Prevents Cancer

By Joe Battaglia

Research utilizing combined data from 17 studies that included more than 12,000 people from the U.S., Europe, and Asia found that optimal levels of vitamin D for colon cancer prevention are higher than the current U.S. recommendation of 600 international units (IU) per day.

In the absence of Vitamin D from sunlight, disease increases more than 1000 percent. Experts suggest that the chances of getting vitamin D from your diet are very low...

UN experts denounce 'myth' pesticides are necessary to feed the world

The idea that pesticides are essential to feed a fast-growing global population is a myth, according to UN food and pollution experts.

A new report, being presented to the UN human rights council on Wednesday, is severely critical of the global corporations that manufacture pesticides, accusing them of the “systematic denial of harms”, “aggressive, unethical marketing tactics” and heavy lobbying of governments which has “obstructed reforms and paralysed global pesticide restrictions”.

How party dips can give you Norovirus and even HERPES (and sour cream is the worst for spreading bacteria)

Norovirus, streptococcus - which gives you a sore throat - and herpes simplex - the cold sore virus - could all be lurking in your favourite sauces if just one party-goer has committed the ultimate party faux pas of double dipping: the act of putting the same crisp or crudité back in a dip after taking a bite.

Vitamin D can prevent BREAST CANCER: Women with high levels are a FIFTH less likely to develop the disease, study finds

Those with 60ng/ml are a fifth less likely to suffer from the condition than those with just 20ng/ml, which is the recommended amount, a study found.

Lead author Sharon McDonnell, from the non-profit organisation GrassrootsHealth, San Diego, California, said: 'Increasing vitamin D blood levels substantially above 20ng/ml appears to be important for the prevention of breast cancer.'

Giant plant that causes third-degree burns, painful blisters and permanent blindness is spotted in Virginia

Officials are warning people to stay clear of the Giant Hogweed plant, which has never before been reported in the state.

The sap of the plant makes the skin so sensitive to sunlight that normal exposure can cause severe burns - a process called phytophotodermatitis.

A brush against the plant can result in painful blisters, permanent scarring and the skin can remain sensitive to sunlight for years after being exposed.

If the sap gets into the eyes, there is potential for blindness.

Audi CEO Arrested As Diesel-Emissions Scandal Spreads

Munich prosecutors have arrested Audi CEO Rupert Stadler, also a member of parent company Volkswagen's board, on concerns he might try to suppress evidence, in what is the highest-profile arrest of a Volkswagen executive since the diesel emissions scandal exploded into public view nearly three years ago.

The arrest comes a month after Audi admitted that another 60,000 A6 and A7 models with diesel engines could have "software emissions issues," and more than two months after Volkswagen CEO Matthias Mueller stepped down and was replaced by Herbert Diess, formerly the CEO of the company's core VW unit, according to the BBC.

Stevia extract fights Lyme disease pathogens BETTER than antibiotics, study reports

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), ‘over 300,000 people are stricken with Lyme disease every year in the United States.’ Yet, the CDC itself admits that Lyme disease is vastly ‘under-reported.’ We, at NaturalHealth365, just wish the mainstream media and government health agencies would focus its attention more on natural remedies, like the use of stevia over gloomy statistics and toxic drugs.

With early symptoms of headache, fever, skin rash and fatigue, Lyme disease can spread throughout the body and affect the brain, nervous system, heart and joints – with serious, even debilitating, consequences. But, recent research shows that the natural sweetener stevia may be more effective than commonly-used antibiotics – when it comes to combatting the pathogen behind Lyme disease.

Caster Semenya files legal challenge against 'discriminatory' IAAF rule

According to Semenya and her legal team, the IAAF regulation requires women who compete in athletics at the international level to submit to medically unnecessary interventions to lower their natural testosterone levels.

"Ms. Semenya contends that the regulations are objectionable on numerous grounds, including that they compel women with no prior health complaints to undergo medical interventions to lower their testosterone levels in the absence of support by the available science," said her legal team, which includes lawyers in South Africa and Toronto's James Bunting, who has had previous success at the CAS challenging the IAAF's testosterone rules.

Ditch the statins and EAT your way back to good heart health, experts controversially claim

Cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra and Professor Dame Sue Bailey, chairwoman of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, are behind the move.

They demanded scores of GPs should be confronted about their willingness to dish out drugs, such as statins - and called for the public to ignore official nutritional advice.

The pair warned 'good health rarely comes out of a medicine bottle' as they called for Britons to drastically change their diets to include less potatoes, rice and bread.

The Death of Independence

The inevitability of a decent into despotism, built into the structure of Article VI, Paragraph 2 of the U.S. Constitution, commonly referred to as the Supremacy Clause, has proven true. It establishes that the federal constitution and federal law generally, take precedence over state laws, and even state constitutions.

Insatiable appetites and lust for power marks the ascendency of legislative, bureaucratic and judicial careers throughout the three branches of central government. Incrementalism and deception has evolved into open defiance and unfettered arrogance. The political class pretends that partisan parties actually offer loyal opposition, when both are camouflaged versions of the same vermin. As likely that cockroaches will inherit the earth, it is more certain that parasitic politicians steal the hopes and dreams of citizens, while destroying any chance for the common-man to have a future worth living.

Curiosity sends back a stunning selfie in the middle of a massive dust storm on Mars that has engulfed the red planet and crippled the Opportunity rover

An incredible image of Nasa's Curiosity Rover taken against the backdrop of a raging dust storm on Mars covering more than a quarter of the planet has been sent back to Earth.

The rover’s self-portrait was taken almost six years into its mission, from its current location in the Gale Crater, a 96-mile-wide (154 kilometres) valley once thought to have been a huge lake.

However, a thick haze of particles obscures the mountains and rocky outcroppings that should be visible in the background of the snapshot.

FLU VACCINE IS THE MOST DANGEROUS VACCINE IN THE U. S. BASED ON SETTLED CASES FOR INJURIES

The last report issued in 2013 by the Department of Justice (Vaccine Court), for compensation made by the Health and Human Services for people injured or killed by vaccines, was released in December 2013, covering the period of 8/16/2013 through 11/15/2013. There were 139 claims settled during this time period, with 70 of them being compensated. So, just over 50% of the claims filed for vaccine damages were compensated during this period.

Flashback: Gardasil Victims Awarded Nearly $6 Million

“There are about 30 to 40 types of HPV that can affect the genital area. And, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are about 6 million new cases of genital HPV infections* in the United States each year.”

Wow, 6 million? That’s a big number. Sounds like bad odds, doesn’t it?

The statistics that Merck fails to include are the facts that, by the time we are 30 years old, nearly everyone who is sexually active will have been exposed to at least one HPV strain, and 90 percent of those cases clear up on their own without any symptoms in two years or less.
