- The gluten-thyroid connection – Several studies show a strong link between AITD (both Hashimoto’s and Graves’) and gluten intolerance. The link is so well-established that researchers suggest all people with AITD be screened for gluten intolerance, and vice versa. What explains the connection? It’s a case of mistaken identity. The molecular structure of gliadin, the protein portion of gluten, closely resembles that of the thyroid gland. When gliadin breaches the protective barrier of the gut, and enters the bloodstream, the immune system tags it for destruction. These antibodies to gliadin also cause the body to attack thyroid tissue. This means if you have AITD and you eat foods containing gluten, your immune system will attack your thyroid.

- Unnatural Fats & Oils Damage the Entire Body – You cannot afford to jeopardize your health by consuming unnatural oils and fats, such as man-made hydrogenated fats (trans-fats) and polyunsaturated fats and oils from vegetables oils (except extra virgin olive oil). These fats and oils are damaging to your entire body because they affect the structure of every single cell.
- Dangers of Modern Vegetable Oils, – Vegetable oils are more toxic when heated. One study reported that polyunsaturates turn to varnish in the intestines. A study by a plastic surgeon found that women who consumed mostly vegetable oils had far more wrinkles than those who used traditional animal fats. A 1994 study appearing in the Lancet showed that almost three quarters of the fat in artery clogs is unsaturated. The “artery clogging” fats are not animal fats but vegetable oils. Any vegetable oil is to be consumed raw or extra virgin. Cold pressed and fresh, never refined. They should not be used for cooking at all. For cooking use only coconut oil, palm oil or butter.
- Pork: Did Leviticus 11:7 Have It Right? – Pork consumption has a strong epidemiological association with cirrhosis of the liver — in fact, it may be more strongly associated with cirrhosis than alcohol. Other studies also show an association between pork consumption and liver cancer as well as multiple sclerosis. Being scavenger animals, pigs are also prime breeding grounds for potentially dangerous infections; even cooking pork for long periods is not enough to kill many of the retroviruses and other parasites that many of them harbor (this is true even of pasture-raised pork)

- Urgent: Throw These Cooking Oils in the Trash – GM crop dangers – Research by Dr. Don M. Huber, an internationally recognized plant pathologist and professor emeritus at Purdue University, has unearthed new evidence of potential harm to both livestock and humans from GM crops. On January 17, he alerted the federal government to a newly discovered organism related to GM corn and soy, which appears to be responsible for plant death, as well as infertility and spontaneous abortion in animals fed GM crops.
- The Bitter Seeds of Monsanto’s Legacy: Debt, Death, and Global Destruction
- New Research Spotlights Deadly Implications of Genetically Modified Crops and Foods – The Alliance for Natural Health recently issued an action alert about GMO foods, especially GE corn and cotton: While the long-term health consequences of consuming genetically modified crops are not yet known, scientists do know one thing. Consuming genetically modified plant DNA leads to the development of “GMO” microorganisms, which reproduce continuously inside the human body… [the microorganisms] can affect the bacteria from our digestive system, and can lead to allergies, disease and even sterility.
- Organic groups, farmers file preemptive lawsuit against Monsanto to protect themselves from inevitable destruction by GMOs – (NaturalNews) In order to avoid completely losing their businesses and livelihoods to the predatory business model of Monsanto, 60 family farmers, seed businesses and organic agricultural organizations have collectively filed a preemptive lawsuit against the multinational biotechnology giant.
- Latter-Day Luther Nails Troubling Thesis to GM Farm & Food Citadels – On the morning of March 24, along with about 80 farmers and Extension agents, I listened as Huber discoursed with erudition and eloquence upon industrial farming practices that may be impacting nearly every morsel of food produced on the planet, and that subsequently may also be having staggeringly serious health consequences for plants, animals, and human beings. Huber is emeritus soil scientist of Purdue University, and a retired U.S. Army Colonel who served as an intelligence analyst, for 41 years, active and reserves.
- The Popular Food that Turns Your Gut into a Pesticide Factory – Corn allergies are on the rise, and while some genetically modified corn is engineered to withstand Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, other varieties are engineered to create their own internal pesticide (Bt toxin). The biotech industry claimed there were no health risks to worry about from these altered foods. In the case of Bt corn, the concern that your gut might turn into a pesticide factory was shrugged off with lame assurances that the Bt toxin wouldn’t survive once ingested. However, just last month, a study revealed that Bt toxin was detected in:

Chemicals and Toxins
- Sunscreens Exposed– EWG’s 5th annual guide to safe and effective sunscreens features ratings for more than 1,700 sunscreens and SPF lip balms, moisturizers and makeups. Highlights? Only one in five sunscreens earns high marks for safety and efficacy. Products with exaggerated SPF claims above 50 still crowd out better brands, and nearly one-third of this year’s crop of sunscreens contains vitamin A, an additive that can accelerate the growth of skin tumors and lesions.

- How Dental Amalgams are Ruining Our Health – The mercury in amalgam is a neurotoxin – and pro-mercury dentists are placing it an inch from your brain! Vulnerable populations – such as children, especially unborn ones, hypersensitive individuals, and people with kidney impairments – are known to be particularly susceptible to the neurotoxic effects of dental mercury. Dr. Dave Simone works with Consumers for Dental Choice to fight amalgam because he fully appreciates how devastating amalgam fillings can be to your health. Dental amalgam emits mercury vapor even after it is placed in your mouth. This mercury is bioaccumulative and endangers your health in many ways, which we’ll review below.
- The Absurdities of Water Fluoridation– Water fluoridation is a peculiarly American phenomenon. It started at a time when Asbestos lined our pipes, lead was added to gasoline, PCBs filled our transformers and DDT was deemed so “safe and effective” that officials felt no qualms spraying kids in school classrooms and seated at picnic tables. One by one all these chemicals have been banned, but fluoridation remains untouched.Fluoridation is UNSAFE because:1) It accumulates in our bones and makes them more brittle and prone to fracture. The weight of evidence from animal studies, clinical studies and epidemiological studies on this is overwhelming. Lifetime exposure to fluoride will contribute to higher rates of hip fracture in the elderly.
2) It accumulates in our pineal gland, possibly lowering the production of melatonin a very important regulatory hormone (Luke, 1997, 2001).
3) It damages the enamel (dental fluorosis) of a high percentage of children. Between 30 and 50% of children have dental fluorosis on at least two teeth in optimally fluoridated communities (Heller et al, 1997 and McDonagh et al, 2000).
4) There are serious, but yet unproven, concerns about a connection between fluoridation and osteosarcoma in young men (Cohn, 1992), as well as fluoridation and the current epidemics of both arthritis and hypothyroidism.
5) In animal studies fluoride at 1 ppm in drinking water increases the uptake of aluminum into the brain (Varner et al, 1998).
6) Counties with 3 ppm or more of fluoride in their water have lower fertility rates (Freni, 1994).
7) In human studies the fluoridating agents most commonly used in the US not only increase the uptake of lead into children’s blood (Masters and Coplan, 1999, 2000) but are also associated with an increase in violent behavior.
8) The margin of safety between the so-called therapeutic benefit of reducing dental decay and many of these end points is either nonexistent or precariously low.
- Monsanto’s Roundup Pesticide Link to Birth Defects Hidden from Public – In a recently released report by an international group of scientists funded by Earth Open Source, the team of researchers concluded that as far back as the 1980s, regulators knew that exposure to the glyphosate-based pesticide commonly marketed as Monsanto’s Roundup causes birth defects.
- Top 20 things that are more dangerous to children than lead paint in Mattel toys – But here’s the interesting part in all this: Parents directly poison their children every day with products far more dangerous than Mattel toys. Don’t believe me? I’ll name twenty things in this article that are far more dangerous to children than Mattel toys. It doesn’t mean Mattel toys are safe, of course. They apparently do contain unacceptably high levels of lead, and there’s no question about the toxicity of lead. But children don’t eat toys nearly as often as they eat some other toxic substances given to them by their parents.

- Breast Cancer Breakthrough – Cut Your Risk of Death in Half – According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, 200,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed each year in the US, making it three times more common than other gynecological cancers. Breast cancer will claim the lives of 40,000 people this year. What is really disturbing is the speed at which breast cancer rates have risen over the past 5 decades. In 1960, one in twenty women were diagnosed—but today, it is one in seven.
- Mammograms cause breast cancer (and other cancer facts you probably never knew) – – Is mammography an effective tool for detecting tumors? Some critics say no. In a Swedish study of 60,000 women, 70 percent of the mammographically detected tumors weren’t tumors at all. These “false positives” aren’t just financial and emotional strains, they may also lead to many unnecessary and invasive biopsies. In fact, 70 to 80 percent of all positive mammograms do not, upon biopsy, show any presence of cancer. At the same time, mammograms also have a high rate of missed tumors, or “false negatives.” Dr. Samuel S. Epstein, in his book, The Politics Of Cancer, claims that in women ages 40 to 49, one in four instances of cancer is missed at each mammography.Mammograms Add to Cancer Risk—mammography exposes the breast to damaging ionizing radiation. John W. Gofman, M.D., Ph.D., an authority on the health effects of ionizing radiation, spent 30 years studying the effects of low-dose radiation on humans. He estimates that 75% of breast cancer could be prevented by avoiding or minimizing exposure to the ionizing radiation from mammography, X rays, and other medical sources. Other research has shown that, since mammographic screening was introduced in 1983, the incidence of a form of breast cancer called ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), which represents 12% of all breast cancer cases, has increased by 328%, and 200% of this increase is due to the use of mammography. In addition to exposing a woman to harmful radiation, the mammography procedure may help spread an existing mass of cancer cells. During a mammogram, considerable pressure must be placed on the woman’s breast, as the breast is squeezed between two flat plastic surfaces. According to some health practitioners, this compression could cause existing cancer cells to metastasize from the breast tissue.

- “Brain Decline is NOT an Inevitable Part of Aging – 3 Things You Can Do” – Your brain is your most complex organ and it’s also the one most vulnerable to everyday stressors. Stress, emotions, exposure to environmental factors, diet and lack of specific nutrients can all take a toll on your brain every day of your life. All these stressors can impact your brain’s functioning. And when that happens, most people brush it off as “just growing older”. Indeed, your cognitive function – which includes your ability to think, focus, concentrate and remember names and other important facts – can naturally begin to decline around the age of 40. Some aspects of normal age-related cognitive decline can even begin in healthy young adults in their 20s and 30s. But you needn’t accept these changes as “normal” as you grow older Researchers today tell us a decline in brain function is not necessarily an inevitable part of growing older. Rather, there’s much you can do to help promote optimal brain function as you age.

Childhood Epidemics: ADD, Autism, Asthma, Allergies
- Asthma rates rising in the US: study – WASHINGTON–Asthma cases in the United States have risen 12.3 percent since 2001, and nearly one in 12, or almost 25 million Americans, are stricken with the chronic respiratory disease, the U.S. government said Tuesday. The extra 4.3 million cases over the past decade also cost more to the U.S. economy — from US$53 billion for medical expenses and lost productivity in 2001 to US$56 billion in 2009, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said.

- Looming? The Autism Crisis is Here – We’re still reeling from the news. One in every 88 children born in 2000 has autism. Among boys alone, it’s one in 54. That’s supposed to be an average, but the rates in individual states are truly horrific. In New Jersey, it’s one in every 49 children, one in every 28 boys. In Utah, one in 47 kids has autism. These numbers are for today’s twelve year olds. We don’t even know what the rate is for younger children.
- Why are food allergies on the rise? By Elizabeth Landau, CNN, August 3, 2010 1:39 p.m. EDT – It seems like more and more children in the U.S. are developing food allergies, and there’s data to back that up. The number of kids with food allergies went up 18 percent from 1997 to 2007, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 3 million children younger than 18 had a food or digestive allergy in 2007, the CDC said.

- Warning: 50 Minutes with This Daily Gadget Can Alter Your Brain and DNA, January 19 2012 – A growing body of researchers have spoken out against cell phone technology, warning that it may have serious biological side effects. On May 31 this year, the World Health Organization (WHO)/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) issued a report admitting cell phones might indeed cause cancer, classifying radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” (Class 2B). The classification came in part in response to research showing wireless telephones increase the risk for brain cancer.

Parasites, Bacteria, Viruses and Infections
- CNN – Europe ‘losing’ superbugs battle – Antibiotic-resistant infections have reached unprecedented levels and now outstrip our ability to fight them with existing drugs, European health experts are warning. Each year in the EU over 25,000 people die of bacterial infections that are able to outsmart even the newest antibiotics. The World Health Organization says the situation has reached a critical point.Evidence that chronic disease is caused by pathogens
- Natural Antibiotics
- Evidence that chronic disease is caused by pathogens – According to the Marshall Pathogenesis, humans accumulate a plethora of pathogenic bacteria during their lifetimes, and it is the genetic mutations which result from active infection that play a major role in what is commonly thought of as “genetic susceptibility.” Besides the absence of proof implicating human genes as the major causative factor, there is a range of evidence – including strong epidemiological and compelling evolutionary evidence – suggesting that pathogens cause chronic diseases.
- Successive infection and variability in disease
- Massive rise in Asian eye damage, 3 May 2012 – Up to 90% of school leavers in major Asian cities are suffering from myopia – short-sightedness – a study suggests. Researchers say the “extraordinary rise” in the problem is being caused by students working very hard in school and missing out on outdoor light. “What we’ve done is written a review of all the evidence which suggests that something extraordinary has happened in east Asia in the last two generations,” he told BBC News. “They’ve gone from something like 20% myopia in the population to well over 80%, heading for 90% in young adults, and as they get adult it will just spread through the population. It certainly poses a major health problem.”
- Researchers Reveal HIV and Aids Health Scandal – On 1st December 2008 a letter signed by 37 renowned scientists was sent to the prestigious American magazine, Science, requesting that the original 1984 paper, on which all subsequent work concerning HIV/AIDS has been based, be withdrawn from the scientific record as it contains seriously flawed information. These scientists are actually stating that the virus called HIV has not been scientifically proven to exist at all. In fact, Dr Roberto Giraldo has gone as far as to say that HIV was invented not discovered. These scientists also claim that there is, as of December 2008, no known cause for AIDS, which is really a definition for 29 already known illnesses and not a separately identifiable ‘syndrome’. This is particularly surprising as the 2008 Nobel Prize in medicine was awarded to Dr Luc Montagnier and Dr Francoise Barre-Sinoussi for the discovery of the AIDS virus.
- Out of control: AIDS and the corruption of medical science – Duesberg thinks that up to 75 percent of AIDS cases in the West can be attributed to drug toxicity. If toxic AIDS therapies were discontinued, he says, thousands of lives could be saved virtually overnight. And when it comes to Africa, he agrees with those who argue that AIDS in Africa is best understood as an umbrella term for a number of old diseases, formerly known by other names, that currently do not command high rates of international aid. The money spent on antiretroviral drugs would be better spent on sanitation and improving access to safe drinking water (the absence of which kills 1.4 million children a year)
