‘Mystical’ Psychedelic Compound Found in Normal Brains

A study in rats has revealed the presence of naturally occurring DMT, an increasingly popular hallucinogen

In the past few years, thrill-seekers from Hollywood, Silicon Valley and beyond have been travelling to South America to take part in so-called Ayahuasca retreats. Their goal: to partake in a brewed concoction made from a vine plant Banisteriopsis caapi, traditionally used by indigenous people for sacred religious ceremonies. Drinkers of Ayahuasca experience short-term hallucinogenic episodes many describe as life-changing...

The Top 10 Reasons to Never Take a Vaccine

Whether you want to protect yourself against hidden carcinogenic ingredients, disallow toxic adjuvants into your body, defend your immune system against a chemical onslaught or refuse to be part of any sinister schemes of sterilization-depopulation agenda, this information is vitally important. More and more, we are learning the truth about vaccines, what they are really composed of and what they really do to the human body – and the more we learn about them, the more we see just how dangerous and harmful they are. Whatever they may have been or could be, as it stands, they are a weapon of medical destruction that makes billions of dollars for the Rockefeller Medicine Big Pharma cartel. Here is my list of the top 10 reasons for an ordinary person to never take a vaccine, unless they were in a life-threatening situation where somehow the benefit outweighed the risk.

Alcohol Less Harmful For People Over 50?

Medical News Today – A recent study examines the health impact of consuming alcohol at different ages. The authors conclude that, for people over the age of 50, the health risks may be less severe.

If alcohol does have protective effects, they are not distributed evenly across all ages.

Heavy drinking is linked to a range of serious health consequences.

These include certain cancers, liver and heart disease, and damage to the nervous system, including the brain.

However, as has been exhaustively covered in the popular press, drinking in moderation might have certain health benefits.

    Scientists remove uranium from living tissue using new method

    Researchers from Soochow University in China have developed a so-called ‘molecular claw’ or a molecule which can be used to remove uranium and other heavy metal atoms from animal tissue, in this instance mice.

    The ominous-sounding ‘claw’ is actually hydroxypyridinone, a molecule used in a type of therapy known as chelation, in which specific molecules are used to remove heavy metals like mercury or, in this case, uranium from the bloodstream.

    This particular chelating agent removed roughly 80 percent of the residual uranium in the kidneys of exposed mice, while 50 percent of the residual radioactive material was extracted from the animals’ bones, with minor adverse effects.

    It may prove to be the best-case scenario for treating uranium exposure in humans, though clinic trials have yet to be completed.

    Popeye was right! Experts call for athletes to be banned from taking a chemical found in SPINACH because it has a 'steroid effect'

    Researchers at the Free University of Berlin have found that ecdysterone – a hormone found in spinach – is so powerful that they want it considered a performance-enhancing drug.

    The research team found a significant spike in performance among those who took the supplement in large quantities. The team, whose study was funded by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), gave athletes capsules of ecdysterone during a ten-week strength training session.

    They saw an increase in strength three times higher than a group given ‘placebo’ capsules.

    Humans may be ALLERGIC to lunar dust: Last man to visit the Moon reveals his NOSE swelled after the last Apollo mission

    An Apollo astronaut who landed on the moon in 1972 has revealed humans may be allergic to the dust on the lunar surface after it caused his nose to swell.

    Harrison 'Jack' Schmitt, 83, trained as a geologist before travelling to our satellite on Apollo 17 and spent hours collecting and studying the fine particles of the surface.

    He told a congregation at the Starmus space festival in Zurich that when he removed his protective gear and dealt with the dust directly he suffered an instant reaction.

    Mr Schmitt claims future missions will have to protect humans from the corrosive dust if we are to colonise the moon.

    8 Scientific Reasons Free Play is Vital for Your Kids

    Child-led free play is unstructured time where children set the rules and call the shots. It’s a moment for them to navigate social interaction and explore the world on their own terms and at their own pace. It’s nothing new. In fact, for most parents, their childhood days were filled with it. Unstructured, self-led play was the cultural norm.

    Seasonal spikes of atrazine, a weed killer that disrupts hormones and harms the developing fetus, contaminate the drinking water of millions of Americans at potentially hazardous levels as run-off from corn-growing areas finds its way into source waters and reservoirs.

    These are among the findings of the most up-to-date analysis of national data on the pervasive contamination of drinking water with atrazine, the second-most widely used weed killer in America. EWG’s Tap Water Database, which aggregates water testing data from utilities nationwide, shows that nearly 30 million Americans in 28 states have some level of atrazine in their tap water. Environmental Protection Agency data for 2017 show late-spring and early-summer spikes of atrazine in drinking water commonly are three to seven times higher than the federal legal limit, but these exceedances are not reported to people in the affected communities.

    Jun 25 15:00


    Endocrine Disruption: The science on atrazine's effects on the hormone system continues to grow. It alters the levels of key hormones in rats and can delay puberty. In male frogs, exposure to atrazine causes a kind of "chemical castration," causing them to develop female sex characteristics. Researchers hypothesize that atrazine singnals the conversion of testosterone to estrogen, demasculinizing the frogs.

    Reproductive Effects: Because atrazine disrupts hormones, it's not surprising that epidemiological studies find associations between exposure to the herbicide and reproductive effects including increased risk of miscarriage, reduced male fertility, low birth weight, increased chance of any birth defect, and higher incidence of abdominal defects;

    Shocking Before & After Photos Reveal Awful Truth About Widespread US Crop Failures In 2019

    Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

    Torrential rains have been hammering the heartland of America for months, and at this point vast stretches of farmland in the middle of the country are nothing but mud. As a result of the endless rain and unprecedented flooding that we have witnessed, millions of acres of farmland will have nothing planted on them at all in 2019, and that is a major national crisis. But most farmers were able to get seeds planted in the deplorable conditions, and now they are desperately hoping that something will actually grow. Unfortunately, on farm after farm what is coming out of the ground looks absolutely terrible. Even if we get ideal weather conditions for the rest of the summer, there is no way that many of these fields will be ready before the first hard frost arrives. As you will see below, the truth is that we are potentially facing the most widespread crop failures in all of U.S. history.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Please, partner with a friend or neighbor, and get a really decent freezer with a capacity to hold a lot of food. If you buy those perishables which keep well in a freezer environment now, you may be able to acquire these items with much less "sticker shock" than you will be experiencing soon.

    Dry non-perishables, which can be kept for a reasonable period in an air-tight container, are also good to have on hand.

    The most important thing in which you can invest right now, is a water filtration system, which will allow you to filter water, and have it on hand.

    As concerns about health epidemics plague the nation, demand and sales of diet soda have plunged as consumers try to make better choices. As reported recently, Aspartame (the main sweetener for diet soda – check the labels) is regarded by scientists as one of the most dangerous ingredients used in our food supply, who have linked it to seizures and a host of other major health issues including fatal cardiovascular events.

    In a newly published study [1] (presented in 2014 at the American College of Cardiology, Washington D.C.), 60,000 women were sampled over ten years. It was shown that women who drink two or more diet drinks a day have much higher cardiovascular disease rates and are more likely to die from the disease.

    Development of NASA's megarocket has overrun costs by nearly $2 BILLION and may not be complete until 2021 - four years later than originally planned, watchdog finds

    NASA's flagship space launch system is taking years longer than expected with cost overruns of nearly $2 billion, an audit has found, raising questions about meeting a goal of returning humans to the moon by 2024.

    The General Accounting Office (GAO) identified $1.8 billion in additional costs, including nearly $1 billion that NASA obscured in previous reports on its Space Launch System (SLS), the rocket and capsule on which the mission rely.

    The issues around the rocket's development, led by Boeing Co, mean that the first launch of the SLS originally scheduled for late 2017 could be delayed until June 2021.

    Cool running: supermarket fridges could help power UK

    Supermarket freezer aisles could soon help power the National Grid after trials found that hundreds of thousands of fridges could provide a nationwide “virtual battery”.

    The trials were undertaken by Tesco along with researchers at the University of Lincoln in a mocked-up supermarket, built to test whether fridges can help to balance the energy system.

    Researchers found that complex algorithms, developed by the software firm IMS Evolve, can temporarily cut the electricity supply to fridges when needed while still keeping the food cold.

    These mini power cuts to the freezers could automatically create short pulses of extra electricity on the grid to match any dips in the grid’s energy frequency.

    Great Pacific garbage patch: giant plastic trap put to sea again

    A floating device designed to catch plastic waste has been redeployed in a second attempt to clean up a huge island of garbage swirling in the Pacific Ocean between California and Hawaii.

    Boyan Slat, creator of the Ocean Cleanup project, announced on Twitter that a 600 metre (2,000ft) long floating boom that broke apart late last year was sent back to the Great Pacific garbage patch this week after four months of repair.

    A ship towed the U-shaped barrier from San Francisco to the patch in September to trap the plastic. But during the four months at sea, the boom broke apart under constant waves and wind and the boom was not retaining the plastic it caught.

    “Hopefully nature doesn’t have too many surprises in store for us this time,” Slat tweeted. “Either way, we’re set to learn a lot from this campaign.”

The research is presented at ASM Microbe, the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology...

    How Black Africans From Ebola Center DRC Are Being Placed All Over America By The Trump Administration

    As I have stated over the past several appearances on the Rense Program, the hordes of Third World black African migrant invaders that have been suddenly appearing at the Mexican border and given immediate asylum (and forever cost-free lives in America) were brought effortlessly into the US via Mexico under the protection of the UN Refugee Resettlement Program. I have been doing much research over the past couple weeks and have came across what I believe to be virtually iron-clad supporting evidence of my statements.

    As some of you saw on a recent Rense video post, a Dutch journalist tried to interview some of the Africans who were transported to and then dropped off at a San Antonio, TX bus station. Remember, many of these Africans were flashing ROLLS of US $100 bills.

    Anti-Vaxxers are Dangerous and Should Be Arrested?

    You may have noticed a recent article in The Washington Post by Juliette N. Kayyem entitled “Anti-vaxxers are dangerous. Make them face isolation, fines, arrests.”1

    My initial reaction was the article must have been written by a moron. However, my opinion changed when I discovered the author, Ms. Kayyem, who graduated from Harvard law school in 1995. So, it appears this article is a carefully crafted piece of pro-vaccine industry propaganda. In other words, a large pile of nonsense and misinformation masquerading as authoritative information. Propaganda pieces typically contain nonsense and blatant lies. That’s OK because the “Big Lie” becomes believable if repeated often enough. (Who Said That?)9 Let’s take a look at the main point and the most glaring falsehood in the article: “Anti-Vaxxers Are Dangerous.”

    Day after day, the memos flashing across screens in an Oklahoma courtroom have jarred with the family-friendly public image of Johnson & Johnson, the pharmaceutical giant best known for baby powder and Band-Aid.

    In one missive, a sales representative dismissed a doctor’s fears that patients might become addicted to the company’s opioid painkillers by telling him those who didn’t die probably wouldn’t get hooked. Another proposes targeting sales of the powerfully addictive drugs at those most at risk: men under 40.

    As the state of Oklahoma’s multibillion-dollar lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson has unfolded over the past month, the company has struggled to explain marketing strategies its accusers say dangerously misrepresented the risk of opioid addiction to doctors, manipulated medical research, and helped drive an epidemic that has claimed 400,000 lives over the past two decades.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Good; there are some drug companies which should be sued out of existence, and very much because of their sharp marketing tactics.
