The Australian Discovery That Could Replace Fossil Fuels

Australian scientists have developed a new efficient catalyst that converts carbon dioxide from the air into synthetic natural gas in a "clean" process, using solar energy.

Undertaken by University of Adelaide in collaboration with CSIRO, the research could make viable a process that has enormous potential to replace fossil fuels and continue to use existing carbon-based fuel technologies without increasing atmospheric CO2.

The catalyst the researchers have developed effectively drives the process of combining CO2 with hydrogen to produce methane (the main component of the fossil fuel natural gas) and water. Currently, natural gas is one of the main fuels used for industrial activities.

Organically-Grown: Is It Worth The Price You Pay? An Interview With An Organic Farm Manager

Even though Whole Foods, in my opinion, has not been a pristine purveyor of what I’d call non-GMO and chemically-free foods, as I and others would have liked, it did a respectable job considering all things involved while also making a handsome bottom line for itself over the years, but now finds itself losing ground to the organically-grown foods revolution taking place and which Amazon obviously wants to become a key player and corner a large segment of that lucrative market. Consumers have become food conscious and want safe, clean and better tasting food!

Did you know that before 1973 it was illegal in the US to profit off of health care. The Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973 passed by Nixon changed everything.

In 1973, Nixon did a personal favor for his friend and campaign financier, Edgar Kaiser, then president and chairman of Kaiser-Permanente. Nixon signed into law, the Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973, in which medical insurance agencies, hospitals, clinics and even doctors, could begin functioning as for-profit business entities instead of the service organizations they were intended to be. And which insurance company got the first taste of federal subsidies to implement HMOA73 … *gasp* … why, it was Kaiser-Permanente!

Why the Liberal Democrats NEED Everyone Vaccinated…

When 2016 liberal Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton laughed in the face of American parents concerned about mandatory vaccines for their children, little did she realize that that insult would cost her the election – and it did. The HUGE anti-vaxxer movement turned to Donald Trump. Hillary’s insult, and the reaction, tipped the scales.

Big Pharma at its very worst

An Indiana-based pharmaceuticals company decided not to recall a painkiller given to newborns even though the drug was 25 stronger than advertised on its label, sickening three infants.

Two top executives at Pharmakon Pharmaceuticals Inc. were indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of engaging in commerce with adulterated drugs, reported the Indianapolis Star.

Did you know that before 1973 it was illegal in the US to profit off of health care. The Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973 passed by Nixon changed everything.

Is the health insurance business a racket? Yes, literally. And this is why the shameless pandering to robber baron corporations posing as “health providers” is such an egregious … and obvious … tactic to do nothing more than plump up insurance company profits.

And do you know who’s to blame? Believe it or not, the downfall of the American health insurance system falls squarely on the shoulders of former President Richard M. Nixon.

Senate Health Care Bill Includes Deep Cuts to Medicaid

Senate Republicans, who have promised a repeal of the Affordable Care Act for seven years, took a major step on Thursday toward that goal, unveiling a bill to cut Medicaid deeply and end the health law’s mandate that most Americans have health insurance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ending the mandate that one MUST have health insurance is a good thing. It will force the health insurance companies to make their products attractive to consumers with lower rates and lower deductibles. A lot of people who were forced to buy "Obamacare compliant" policies wound up being severely hurt by them financially (including yours truly).

How To Curb All Inflammation In Your Body

By Caroline Williams

Coping with modern life can sometimes feel like a remorseless treadmill. Many of us end up exhausted, with a vague feeling that all this pressure can’t be doing us any good. But we do it anyway, driven by the notion that stress is for wimps. And there’s always a glass of wine and a takeaway to look forward to at the end of the week. Big mistake. Far from being for wimps, physical and psychological stress are major triggers of a modern scourge that has been linked with every malady from heart disease, depression and chronic pain to neurodegenerative diseases. That scourge is inflammation...

Are Electromagnetic Frequencies The Microwave Industry’s Achilles Heel Or The “Allergy de Jour”?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Basically, anyone can be allergic to anything; how about nickel allergy to cheap metal jewelry. Or woolen clothing? Insect bites? One percent of U.S. people have latex allergies! Nothing, technically, is exempt depending upon an individual’s constitution and exposures. That’s something allopathic medicine and some of the sciences seemingly write off as “not possible,” especially when it comes to modern technologies, which include electromagnetic impulses or frequencies called EMFs or RFs (radiofrequencies)...

Health Ranger posts heavy metals test results for 364 more water samples from across America: Lead, Copper, Arsenic and Aluminum numbers

THANK YOU to all the Natural News readers and fans who submitted water samples to our lab for ICP-MS testing. Over the last year, we’ve processed over 600 water samples, and we’ve recently updated the 2017 numbers to include the most recent samples. Now, we have 364 water samples in 2017 alone, all tested for heavy metals like copper, arsenic and lead. We’ve also begun including aluminum results, given the very high level of interest in aluminum and its neurotoxicity.

Science: Regular consumption of marijuana keeps you thin, fit and active

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Here’s a new health-related adage to consider: Regular consumption of marijuana keeps you thin and active.

According to researchers at Oregon Health and Science University, people who use marijuana more than five times per month have a lower body mass index (BMI) than people who do not marijuana.

The researchers concluded:

“Heavy users of cannabis had a lower mean BMI compared to that of never users, with a mean BMI being 26.7 kg/m in heavy users and 28.4 kg/m in never users.”

The study also suggested that people who consume marijuana on a regular basis are more physically activity than those that use it sporadically or not at all.

CRISPR May Not Be Nearly as Precise as We Thought

The revolutionary gene-editing technology CRISPR-Cas9 is often described as “molecular scissors” for its ability to turn previously improbable feats of genetic engineering into exercises in cutting and pasting. But while over the last few years CRISPR has become so commonplace that even middle school students are now using it, a study out this week in the journal Nature Methods reminds us that it’s still a nascent technology with a long way to go before we can freely cut and paste human DNA at will.

When correcting blindness in mice, researchers at Columbia University found that though CRISPR did manage to successfully edit the particular gene responsible for blindness, it also caused mutations to more than a thousand other unintended genes. The off-target effects of CRISPR have long been known, but this new research highlights just how extensive they can be, and highlights the importance of research to understand them.

American Air Force FOR ISIS And Al-Nusra

One of the dirtiest secrets of US involvement in Syria is pretending to combat terrorism while actively supporting it ­ including ISIS, al-Nusra and other anti-government forces.

No so-called “moderate rebels” exist. All fighters engaged in combat, except for government and allied forces, are US-supported terrorists.

American and Russian objectives in Syria are world’s apart. Anything US officials agree to isn’t worth the paper it’s written on ­ deals of convenience made to be breached.

The Senate Republicans’ Secret Health Bill

Senate Republicans think that subterfuge and secrecy are the ways to formulate a replacement for Obamacare, but in this, and in many other areas of policy, they are wrong. The American people, and senators from both parties, deserve to know the key details of what will be in this momentous bill now, and not right before a final vote is taken.

Senator Mitch McConnell criticized President Barack Obama and the Democrats when they took over a year to construct Obamacare, saying they were trying to ram it down everyone’s throats. This is not only hypocrisy of the first order, but also a highly undemocratic way of approaching an incredibly important piece of legislation, whose final composition will affect millions of Americans.

Breathing nanoparticles from combustion engines causes Alzheimer’s disease… is this why so many city dwellers are losing their minds?

Researchers in the U.S. and Mexico discovered that inhaling microscopic particles from exhaust fumes caused damage in the brains of children who were as young as three years old. Moreover, the nanoparticles had led to obvious damage in key parts of children’s brains by the time they turned 14.

They reached their conclusions after looking at the brains of 13 children and 21 young adults in Mexico City who died in accidents but were healthy otherwise. The scientists believe this damage could help explain adolescent behavioral problems like violence and could be a precursor to Alzheimer’s disease later in life.

Syria war: Polio paralyses 17 children in Mayadin and Raqqa

WHO spokesman Tarik Jasarevic told reporters that the 17 children with acute flaccid paralysis first showed symptoms between 3 March and 23 May.

But lab tests had only recently confirmed that the children had "vaccine-derived" polio, rather than the more virulent "wild" version of the virus, he said.

Oral polio vaccine (OPV) contains small amounts of weakened but live virus, which replicates in the intestine for a limited period and can be passed to others living in under-immunised areas through faecal-contaminated water or food.

Mr Jasarevic said the outbreak meant there was significant under-immunisation in the Mayadin area, and that in response the WHO planned to vaccinate 90,000 children under the age of five there and 320,000 others elsewhere in Deir al-Zour.

Food Ingredient and Health Research Institute - What and Who We Are

The Food Ingredient and Health Research Institute is the only federally recognized 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization in the United States (US) devoted entirely to food ingredient safety, education, and research. Up until now, there has been no organization in the U.S. devoted to conducting research on food ingredients Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). With the Food Ingredient and Health Research Institute (FIHRI), we now have a mechanism for supporting this badly needed research. There are numerous GRAS food additives and ingredients in our food supply that recent research indicates are factors in the development of behavioral disorders such as autism and ADHD and chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes. More research is needed to find out how these various food ingredients and chemicals lead to these adverse health effects.

RAW SEWAGE SEEPS OUT OF GAZA AS ELECTRICITY SUPPLIES DWINDLE

The Israel Electric Company, which typically transfers about 120 megawatts of electricity daily to Gaza, confirmed that it would continue reducing the supply gradually over the next few days.

With minimal electricity available to treat Gaza’s wastewater, continued power cuts could cause irreparable damage not only to the Strip but also to Israel, as raw sewage runs rampant across maritime borders.

“We’re starting to play Russian roulette,” Gidon Bromberg, Israeli director of EcoPeace Middle East, told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.

Pursuant to a request from the Palestinian Authority, which is aiming to pressure Hamas to cede control over the isolated territory, Israel began decreasing the amount of electricity it supplies to Gaza on Monday by 8 MW. The Israel Electric Corporation, which typically transfers about 120 MW of electricity daily to Gaza, confirmed that it would continue reducing the supply gradually over the next few days.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Unsafe at Any Meal: What the FDA Does Not Want You to Know About the Foods You Eat

Each year, Americans consume hundreds of food products that contain truly dangerous compounds, including heavy metals, pesticides, and other harmful additives?with the blessing of the FDA. Why is this happening and why haven’t you heard about it? In Unsafe at Any Meal, Dr. Renee Dufault, former food investigator for the Food and Drug Administration, provides the startling answers. While at the FDA, Dr. Dufault discovered that mercury?a highly toxic metal?was contaminating the plumbing systems of many food manufacturing plants. Upon further examination, she discovered that the same mercury was also evident in a number of processed foods commonly sold in supermarkets. When Dr. Dufault revealed these disturbing findings to her superiors, she was told to stop her investigation. Her continued efforts to raise the issue always met with a dead end, so she chose to take an early retirement from the FDA.

Neil deGrasse Tyson joins efforts of violent wife beater Jon Entine and convicted felon ringleader of ACSH to produce Monsanto propaganda film called “Food Evolution”

The Monsanto Mafia is at it again, pushing corporate poison propaganda under the guise of “science,” and this time they’ve recruited junk science loudmouth Neil deGrasse Tyson to lend his condescending voice to a propaganda project that was spearheaded behind the scenes by violent wife beater (and biotech propaganda shill) Jon Entine and features messaging from the ACSH, run by a convicted criminal felon.

Amazon’s purchase of Whole Foods to create a dangerous monopoly on health products that are frequently contaminated with heavy metals, warns the Health Ranger

One of the big questions on everyone’s minds following the recent acquisition of Whole Foods Market by Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos is what will become of the natural and organic grocer moving forward? The prospect of Whole Foods becoming more like Bezos’ other ventures is an ominous one for many people, especially because it affects something that’s very near and dear to all of us: Clean, chemical-free food.

To be fair, Whole Foods was already stricken with problems prior to the merger, including the presence of dangerous heavy metals like mercury and lead in some of its products. When independent lab reports confirming this were presented to Whole Foods executives, they basically ignored them and continued on with business as usual – which says a whole lot about the unfortunate direction the company was headed even without Amazon in the picture.

Five takeaways from Iran's missile strike in Syria

At its most obvious level, Iran's missile attack on the Islamic State command centre in the Syrian city of Dier Ezzor on Sunday may be regarded as the demonstration of an extraordinarily innovative military capability.

Iran says it fired six ground-to-ground missiles from Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) bases in Kermanshah and Kurdistan provinces, both in Western Iran, and that they hit the targets in Deir Ezzur with high precision after flying through the Iraqi airspace.
As Tehran sees it, the Trump team, which lacks experience in international diplomacy, might harbour notions that Iran's moderation in recent years is a sign of weakness or lack of political resolve on the part of the moderate-reformist leadership of President Hassan Rouhani.

Flashback: THE MYSTERY OF THE KAZAKHSTANI SLEEPING SICKNESS

In 2013, dozens of people in Kalachi and Krasnogorsky, towns in remote Kazakhstan, began succumbing to a mysterious “sleeping sickness.” They started passing out at random—at school, at home, on a motorcycle—sometimes for days at a time. Kazakhstani officials announced last week they had an explanation: carbon monoxide drifting out of a nearby uranium mine.

Problem solved, right? Only…maybe not.

The Soviet-era uranium mine, abandoned since the early 1990s, was indeed an early suspect. But its most obvious associated dangers—like radon gas and radiation—didn’t fit the symptoms. Victims who didn’t pass out suffered hallucinations, headaches, and fatigue, while radon and radiation are more likely to increase cancer risk in the long-term.

China sets new record for quantum entanglement en route to build new communication network

IN A bid to build an entirely new kind of internet — completely secure and impervious to hackers — China has pulled off a major feat in particle physics.

Chinese scientists have set a new distance record for beaming a pair of entangled particles: photons of light that behave like twins and experience the exact same things simultaneously, even though they’re separated by great distances.

The principle is called quantum entanglement and it’s one of the subatomic world’s weirdest phenomena. And China has smashed the distance record for quantum entanglement.

EXCLUSIVE: Moms Across America releases powerful new documentary exposing toxicity of GMOs and glyphosate

Moms Across America has just released a powerful new video called “Communities Rising” that exposes the devastating toxicity of GMOs and glyphosate. Watch the video now at this YouTube link, or watch it below.

GMOs and glyphosate are the leading toxins used in the mass poisoning of our children and our food soils. This mass poisoning is being underwritten and promoted by the deceptive media, prostituted science shills (who are routinely bribed to promote toxic poisons) and even Monsanto-funded “smear” groups that attack clean food activists. That’s why it’s so important that you not only watch this film but share it with others.

Every mom in America needs to see this documentary. Every consumer of food urgently needs to be informed of the systemic poisoning that’s being conducted right now, across nearly the entire U.S. food supply.

Watch this important film, share it with others.

MONSANTO’S GLYPHOSATE LINKED TO THE DEATH OF OUR OCEANS AND CORAL REEFS

Monsanto’s glyphosate, aka Roundup, is the most heavily used agricultural chemical in history, with some 3.5 billion plus gallons of the herbicide being used in the Unites States alone since its introduction in 1974. Worldwide use of glyphosate is rising fast, in spite of very legitimate concerns that the chemical is causing widespread health problems including liver disease and even cancer in humans.

Contamination in rural areas in Argentina have caused serious public health issues, and the chemical is reported to be found in many products in our food supply, including many common children’s cereals, and even in breastfeeding mother’s milk, although this last claim is vehemently denied by Monsanto.

Snyder Warns: “A Full-Blown Eruption Of The Yellowstone Supervolcano Would Have The Potential Of Being An Extinction Level Event”

Is it possible that the Yellowstone supervolcano is gearing up for a major eruption? If you follow my work on a regular basis, then you already know that I spend a lot of time documenting how the crust of our planet is becoming increasingly unstable. Most of this shaking is taking place far away from the continental United States, and so most Americans are not too concerned about it. But we should be concerned about it, because a major seismic event could change all of our lives in a single instant. For instance, a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano would have the potential of being an E.L.E. (extinction level event). That is why it is so alarming that there have been 296 earthquakes in the vicinity of the Yellowstone supervolcano within the last 7 days. Scientists are trying to convince us that everything is going to be okay, but there are others that are not so sure.

“Transgenic Corruption” and GM Crops in Argentina

GM crops in Argentina are approved by people from the same companies that produce and market them, a new investigation by the journalist Dario Aranda reveals.

The agency in which these people are collected is called the National Advisory Committee on Agricultural Biotechnology (Conabia). According to Aranda, it is composed of representatives of Monsanto, Bayer, Syngenta, Indear/Bioceres, Pioneer/DuPont, Don Mario, ASA (Seed Companies’ Association), Aapresid (Association of No-Till Producers – farmers who grow GM crops and use herbicide applications to control weeds), Argenbio and INTA (National Institute of Agricultural Technology). Out of 34 members, 26 belong to the same companies that produce seeds or are scientists with conflicts of interest.

RADIOACTIVE WASTE FLOWING FREELY INTO COLUMBIA RIVER BECAUSE THERE’S NO MONEY TO STOP IT

A member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently informed the public that radioactive waste from the decommissioned Hanford nuclear power plant is ‘flowing freely’ into the Columbia river.

The mighty Columbia river is the largest river in the Pacific Northwest region of America, flowing down from Canada, winding through eastern Washington state and along the border between Oregon, ultimately moving through downtown Portland and into the Pacific. The Hanford site, located near Kennewick, WA is up river from a million or so people, not to mention the wildlife.

Constructed in the 1940’s as part of the Manhattan Project, the plant was decommissioned after the Cold War, leaving behind some 53 million gallons of high level radioactive waste. Proposed as a Superfund site in 1988, Hanford is an uncontrollable ecological and public health disaster.

As noted in the list of national Superfund sites:

Power really DOES corrupt the mind: The brain activity of CEOs changes as they climb the career ladder and causes them to lose the ability to empathise

The saying goes that 'power corrupts', and a new study suggests there may be some truth behind this - especially when it comes to brain function.

Researchers have found that CEOs and other leaders may suffer damage to their brain as a result of their rise to power.

The damage results in the loss of the ability to read other people's emotions, which could explain why people who achieve great power lose their ability to feel empathy for the less powerful.

Researchers at McMaster University in Ontario made the finding using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) - a technique that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in specific regions of the brain.

This showed that the areas of the brain that deal with empathy were significantly less responsive in people in power.

A Lamp That Generates Light Through Gravity

The Gravitylight Foundation is a charity based in the UK which wants to eliminate the use of kerosene in communities without access to electricity, which is burned to generate light after dark (in these communities, a ridiculously high percentage of a household’s income is spent on kerosene, and therefore it becomes a poverty trap). After two years of hard work and research, they’ve managed to develop a lamp which sheds light with the aid of only gravity.

Report: Israel giving secret aid to Syrian rebels

Israel has been regularly supplying Syrian rebels near its border with cash as well as food, fuel and medical supplies, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.

According to the report, the IDF is in regular communication with rebel groups and its assistance includes undisclosed payments to commanders that help pay salaries of fighters and buy ammunition and weapons, according to interviews with about half a dozen Syrian fighters.

An unnamed source told the newspaper that Israel has established a military unit that oversees the support in Syria, and set aside a specific budget for the aid.

58 people confirmed or presumed dead from London tower fire

London police on Saturday raised to 58 the number of deaths either confirmed or presumed following the horrific inferno that turned the city’s Grenfell Tower public housing block into a charred hulk.

Public anger is mounting as residents and neighbors demand answers for how the blaze early Wednesday spread so quickly and trapped so many of the tower’s 600-odd residents. British media have reported that contractors installed a cheaper, less flame-resistant type of exterior paneling on the 24-story tower in a renovation that was completed just last year.

How Rachel Carson Cost Millions of People Their Lives

Although DDT soon became synonymous with poison, the pesticide was an effective weapon in the fight against an infection that has killed—and continues to kill—more people than any other: malaria. By 1960, due largely to DDT, malaria had been eliminated from eleven countries, including the United States. As malaria rates went down, life expectancies went up; as did crop production, land values, and relative wealth. Probably no country benefited from DDT more than Nepal, where spraying began in 1960. At the time, more than two million Nepalese, mostly children, suffered from malaria. By 1968, the number was reduced to 2,500; and life expectancy increased from 28 to 42 years.

After DDT was banned, malaria reemerged across the globe:

How To Kill a Whole Lot of People: Scripps Scientists Publish How They Made H7N9 Virus More Transmissible

By Janet Phelan

In 2014, a moratorium was placed on federally funded research which involved making flu viruses more lethal. The moratorium was placed after heated debate generated by research published by a Netherlands team, headed up by Ron Fouchier. Fouchier’s research had produced a strain of H5N1 which was able to go airborne, thus greatly enhancing its ability to spread. Fouchier focused on the transmission of the disease among ferrets, which are the lab stand-in for people.

Now, scientists in California have published research concerning enabling the human-to-human transmission of the bird flu virus H7N9. This virus strain is of concern to scientists as it has already infected 1500 people and killed 40% of them. H7N9 has not been known, however, to spread easily from human contact...

Is Lead in the US Food Supply Decreasing our IQ?

The environmental advocacy group Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) on June 15 released a study about dietary lead exposure, with a focus on food intended for babies and young children.

Using a Federal Drug Administration (FDA) database of food samples, EDF reported some pretty worrying numbers, most remarkably in fruit juice samples intended for children. For example, 89 percent of the baby food grape juice samples had detectable levels of lead in them.

As researchers who served as independent reviewers on the EDF report, we think it raises important concerns about the safety of our food supply...

Justice or revenge: Relatives demand punishment after US troops shoot dead Afghan father & 2 sons

The US Military,poorly trained,poorly disciplined. When they get into a fight with a modern military they will have their heads and butts handed to them. Allowing themselves to be enveloped and flanked in Syria shows how unprofessional they are. As does this incident.

The relatives of an Afghan father and two of his sons, who they say were killed and disfigured by heavy US fire in the country's Nangarhar province, told RT they demand the American troops be punished. The US military says it's unaware of civilian casualties.

Zir Gul and his sons were basically torn apart by the US gunfire, with his uncle Ghulam Ahmad saying: It was horrible what the Americans did to them. Even I couldn't recognize their bodies.The tragedy left 12 of Zir Gul's children, six sons and as many daughters, without their provider.

But the family says changes to his medication in the six months prior to the tragedy led to a ­catastrophic decline.

Tragically, staff at the Peter Hodgkinson Centre in Lincoln failed to warn the family Greene had become violent and tried to strangle a doctor – something only discovered by distraught Jo and Andrea at his trial.

Jo, 39, said: “I feel the review was a whitewash. I can’t accept Alex’s death wasn’t preventable.

Could antidepressants really cause brain damage? Experts reveal the pills don't work for most people and could even cause PERMANENT harm

More Britons than ever are taking antidepressant drugs — prescriptions for the most common type, known as SSRIs (serotonin selective reuptake inhibitors), rose by 165 per cent between 1998 and 2012.

But a controversial new book, The Sedated Society, claims these drugs, said to correct a chemical imbalance in the brain, are the wrong thing to give to emotionally vulnerable people — adults or children.

In an excoriating assessment of the drug industry and psychiatry, experts claim the evidence for antidepressants is flawed and say the drugs have never been shown to correct a chemical imbalance.

Horrifying video shows how opioid addiction has transformed the city of Baltimore into a Third World city

If you want to see just how quickly drugs can plunge a beautiful and thriving city into desolation, look no further than Baltimore. On the surface, the city has plenty to offer, with lots of history, a lovely harbor, diverse entertainment options, and top research and medical facilities. However as opiate addiction has spread throughout the city over the past several years, it has turned it into a place that is no longer befitting of its nickname, Charm City.

In fact, a more suitable nickname would be The Heroin Capital of the United States as the city now has the dubious honor of having the highest per-capita rate of heroin addiction in the nation. Of the city’s 645,000 residents, it is estimated that around 60,000 are drug addicts and 48,000 of these people are hooked on heroin.
