Ebola Alert: Doctor Exposed To Virus Is Brought To The U.S.

0

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

A United States physician who was exposed to the Ebola virus while treating patients in the Democratic Republic of Congo arrived in the United States today and was taken to a secure area at the Nebraska Medical Center. The DRC is currently experiencing one of its worst Ebola outbreaks in history.

According to Politico, the 39-year-old physician, who isn’t exhibiting symptoms of the deadly virus, was privately transported to the medical center in Omaha, Nebraska, on Saturday afternoon, officials there confirmed. Ebola, which can spread through direct contact, can incubate for three weeks before an infected person begins showing symptoms. Humans infected with the virus are not considered infectious until they develop symptoms, according to MYVMC.com.  Symptoms include fever, confusion, fatigue, aching muscles, and bloodshot eyes.

ANOTHER study confirms the detrimental effects of water fluoridation on the IQs of children

by Zoey Sky, Natural News:

Another study has added to the growing body of evidence that links the fluoride found in water with lowered intelligence quotients (IQ) in children.

A study, which was published last year, confirmed the dangers that water fluoridation has when it is consumed by children, particularly on their IQ. Not only that, fluoridated water was also shown to adversely affect the cognitive ability of babies when this is consumed by their mothers during pregnancy.

A total of 299 mother-child pairs in Mexico were examined as part of the study. Researchers looked into the link between fluoride levels in the urine of pregnant mothers and the IQ test results of their children. The results of the study revealed that toddlers born from mothers with higher fluoride levels often had lower tests compared to those whose mothers had lower fluoride levels.

Morteza Bashash, one of the authors of the study, explained: “In this study, higher prenatal fluoride exposure, in the general range of exposures reported for other general population samples of pregnant women and nonpregnant adults, was associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring.”

In 2012, a study on the impact of fluoride “on the neurological development of children” was published by Harvard School of Public Health. While the study was mostly disregarded by legacy media (e.g. print media, radio, television, etc.) it gained traction when it was shared on social media in the following years and it spread awareness about the dangers of fluoridated water and how to avoid it. (Related: More science confirms fluoride exposure damages brains and lowers IQs in newborns.)

The chemical sodium fluoride, commonly known as fluoride, has been classified as a neurotoxin, along with arsenic, lead, and mercury. However, according to an article that appeared in the Waking Times, the chemical is still being added to America’s water supply “for what some claim protects the health of our teeth.”

Fluoride-related health risks

To the unaware, the results may be shocking, but this isn’t anything new to anyone who has read up on the dangers of fluoride — at least 50 studies have examined the connection between fluoride and decreased IQ in humans. In addition to this, there are at least 45 studies pointing out a  “lessened cognitive ability in animals” due to fluoride exposure. While evidence like this has persuaded a handful of health authorities worldwide to remove fluoride from public drinking water, it could take more than data from studies to ensure that politicians are held accountable for their involvement in the propagation of this health risk.

In other studies, researchers have determined the link between fluoride and diseases such as arthritis, cancer, dental fluorosis, diabetes, Down’s syndrome, and osteoporosis. This link is possibly due to fluoride variants such as hydrofluorosilicic acid, “a chemical byproduct of the phosphate fertilizer and aluminum industries.” The article opines that this chemical is probably added to public water not out of concern for public health but to protect industries from lawsuits regarding environmental damage.

Dr. J. William Hirzy, Senior Chemist at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), expressed his disbelief and said, “If this stuff (hydrofluorosilicic acid) gets out into the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the lake, it’s a pollutant; but if it goes right straight into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant. That’s amazing.”

Tips to minimize fluoride exposure

To avoid the dangers of fluoridated water, follow the tips listed below:

  • Do not drink fluoridated water – On a daily basis, tap water consumption is the main cause of fluoride exposure consumption for individuals who reside in areas that allow the fluoridation of water. Avoid fluoride through these three options:
    • Use water filters
    • Drink spring water
    • Try water distillation

Rip-offs In Healthcare, Especially Prescription Drugs

0

by Catherine Frompovich, Activist Post:

The healthcare – or shall I call it “sickness care” – industries in the United States and, perhaps globally, apparently operate under several misleading practices of being there to help consumers get well.

Although that sounds altruistic, nothing probably is further from factual and monetary truths, according to many concerned individuals who recognize what amounts to “rip-offs” and are calling it out for what it is.

In view of the exorbitantly annual increases in healthcare insurance premiums and prescription drug plans, consumers and regulatory agencies must step back to reassess “what the hell is going on” with price increases that prevent those folks who take prescription drugs from either cutting back on them or not being able to afford them in the first place.

Type 2 diabetes can be avoided with the right kind of diet – do you know which one?

by Isabelle Z., Natural News:

If there’s any upside to the devastating prevalence of Type 2 diabetes in modern times, it’s the wealth of research into the disease the epidemic has inspired. There have been plenty of useful findings in recent years, although not all of them have gotten the publicity they deserve, especially those that threaten the profits of pharmaceutical companies and doctors. That’s a tragedy because putting these findings into action could significantly reduce this disease’s impact on people.

DNA-testing company 23andMe has signed a $300 million deal with a drug giant. Here’s how to delete your data if that freaks you out.

by Erin Elizabeth, Health Nut News:

In case you weren’t aware, companies like Ancestry and 23andMe are legally allowed, and often do, sell your data to drugmakers. However, this summer one of those partnerships became much more explicit; in July Big Pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline acquired a $300 million stake in 23andMe.

If that wake-up call has you rethinking about giving these companies access to your genetic material, you still have options, although it might be a long process: (And let’s be clear, while there are supposed to be protections in place to make sure that your info isn’t stolen, “…leaks can happen, and privacy advocates note that such incidents could allow your data to find its way elsewhere, perhaps without your knowledge.”1)

How Opaque Healthcare Pricing Mechanisms Rip Off Consumers

0

by Michael Gorback, M.D., Wolf Street:

“I’ve been pounding the table about location-based pricing for years. Now we have hard data.”

Wolf here: Michael Gorback, M.D., who has authored a number of articles for Wolf Street on how opaque pricing in the US healthcare system inflates costs, has been a strong advocate of price transparency. He told me he is “one of the very few (only?) pain specialists who accept uninsured patients and publish their cash fee schedule.”

A “cash fee schedule” is essentially a price list. It’s the norm in just about every industry, except in healthcare, where opaque pricing dominates – to the detriment of consumers.

By Michael Gorback, M.D., at the Center for Pain Relief in Houston, TX:

Imagine you’re out shopping for a new car. You stop by Dealership A and get an offer of $35,000. You decide to do some comparison-shopping and head over to Dealership B. Their price is $39,000. You show them the offer from Dealership A. The trusty salesman says you should buy the car from him at the higher price because his store has a higher overhead. “Look at the fancy furniture in our showroom,” he says. “The chairs are really comfortable in the waiting area and we offer espresso and cappuccino. Our rent is also much higher.”

This is the logic behind higher prices for outpatient procedures done at a hospital as opposed to an ambulatory surgery center or office setting. I discussed this phenomenon on Wolf Street back in 2014.

Well, now we have some numbers. According to a report submitted to Congress by the Physicians Advocacy Institute (Medicare Payment Differentials Across Outpatient Settings of Care), hospital outpatient services cost considerably more than other settings without any evidence of added benefit. Whether it’s a colonoscopy, cardiac imaging, or just an office visit, costs are higher in a hospital outpatient setting.

“Medicare is paying hospitals more for the same services because (the federal healthcare program) thinks it costs (physicians) more to provide the same service due to higher overheads,” said Bhagwan Satiani, MD, professor of clinical surgery at Ohio State University’s College of Medicine, cited by Physicians News Network.

Yes! You should buy our $39,000 car because the furniture in our showroom is more expensive!

I’m not sure why Physicians New Network added “(physicians)” to the statement by Dr. Satiani. The physicians are not being paid the facility fee. The hospital gets the fee. Actually, if I do a procedure at the hospital, my professional fee is cut because I don’t have overhead. Think about that for a moment. Let’s say I get $250 for the procedure in the office. If I do it at the hospital I get $125, so CMS must think my overhead is $125. But CMS thinks that the hospital’s overhead is perhaps $800. Why are they subsidizing the less cost-efficient location?

Doctors working in such settings seem to have an incentive to do more medical procedures, Bhagwan Satiani said, according to PNN.

True dat! There is intense pressure on hospital-employed physicians to do more of everything – testing, procedures, treatments, and so on. Fail to order enough tests and you might find yourself having a heart-to-heart chat with one of the corporate suits.

Total Individual Control Technology: Insider exposes how you & your DNA are being targeted

0

by Makia Freeman, Intellihub:

Total Individual Control Technology is a nefarious type of EM (Electromagnetic) and V2K (Voice to Skull) weaponized technology that is being experimented with and deployed against segments of the American population. Those attacked by this electronic stalking are known as TIs (Targeted Individuals). Recently another brave whistleblower has stepped forward to expose it. Bryan Kofron (who formerly used the alias of Justin Carter) is a security industry specialist who used to work for a private security company SIS (Security Industry Specialists) in Seattle, Washington. He quit in disgust after realizing that his former firm, and others just like it, were actively using this so-called total individual control technology to target people, then ultimately control and destroy their lives. Since he quit, he has himself become a victim of the technology via gangstalking.

What Total Individual Control Technology is Capable Of

According to Kofron, this technology is so advanced that it can be used to read your mind, program your mind with thoughts (that you would believe are your own) and induce emotional states in you (including pain, hate and fear). It can be used to tap into your optical nerve and auditory systems to see and hear what you are seeing and hearing. It can target particular people by engaging in individual-specific attacks (based on the target’s DNA resonance). Finally, it is being used in vast social engineering programs as a way to experiment upon poor, homeless and weak people who have little or no chance of fighting back.

In interviews or presentations such as this and this, Kofron explains that this technology is being used by psychopaths who have little scruples about the harm they are causing. They are targeting specific groups of people: those who are cognitively inclined, highly intelligent, knowledgeable about advanced technology or interested in alternative research (i.e. conspiracy research). In general, they are either targeting empowered individuals with free minds (to stop dissidents and revolutionaries) or those too poor and weak to fight back.

Using Kofron’s own words, here are some of the things Total Individual Control Technology is able to do:

“This technology manipulates the electrical signals in the brain, thus controlling thoughts and feelings and emotions and sensations throughout the body. It works by rewiring the brain by creating new neural pathways and destroying existing neural pathways, thus this literally changes the way a person thinks and thus behaves.”

“This technology can also be used to control the muscle movement of the target. It can take over one’s hands or feet while driving and make you press on the accelerator or press on the brake or turn. This can be used to cause accidents it can also be used to prevent accidents from happening.”

“This technology can also tap into the optical nerve of the target, and the auditory system of the target, so that those monitoring the target can see what the target is seeing and hear what target is hearing. This information is then downloaded and stored on a computer, in a highly secure classified site on servers that are guarded by some of the tightest security in the world. This results in the individual’s entire day, everything they see, everything they hear, everything they experiment, everything they experience, and everything they feel being recorded till the end of time.”

“This technology can also be used to manipulate the emotions of the target. It can induce fear, love, hate.”

“This technology can be used to beam images and even motion pictures into one’s brain. Images and motion pictures that are so realistic that you think you are actually watching a movie or seeing something in reality. It’s like a virtual reality 3D rendering that takes place within the target’s mind. The images and motion pictures manifest themselves in such a way that the target if they are not aware that this technology is being used on them will believe that they are natural thoughts and natural images.”

“This technology can also be used to induce and control dreams. It can be used to control dream cycles and sleep patterns. To cause one to sleep very deeply or to cause one to not sleep at all. REM cycles, alpha beta and delta brainwaves can be induced immediately by this technology. And this technology can also be used to mimic spiritual experiences. Joy, love, peace that passes understanding can all be induced artificially by this technology to make the target believe that they are having a genuine spiritual experience when they’re not.”

“This technology can also be used to sexually manipulate the target. Make them feel sexual arousal or turn off their sexuality altogether, it can stimulate them and it can shut them down at a moments notice. It can also be used to manipulate the hormones of the target, thus lowering and raising estrogen and testosterone levels in women and men respectively.”

“This technology can also be used to read the thoughts of the target in real time … they can read your thoughts verbatim as they occur within your own mind.”

“Anywhere from small groups of people 10-20 to 100, to medium size groups of people several thousand to tens of thousands. This is done by creating a field effect, where an entire field of electromagnetic energy is created in a geographical location and any human being within that geographical location within that electromagnetic field affecting that geographical location will be effected by the technology. This can be used to induce a general mood in a population or a crowd of people. It can be used to make them passive, it can be used to make them agitated. And this can be used to cause or stop, induce riots. Stop crime, start crime. Stop thoughts, start thoughts. Massive mind control on a citywide level.”

Total Individual Control Technology Attacks Specific Individuals Based on DNA Resonance

As I have discussed in previous articles on mind control such as “They” Can’t Read Your Thoughts … Right?, the state of current mind control technology is beyond most people’s comprehension and idea of what is possible. Yet, we have had enough out-of-the-closet whistleblowers and leaked or declassified documents to give us a clear idea of the scary extent to which we can be psychically attacked. Whistleblowers such as Dr. Robert Duncan have lectured at length about the capabilities of V2K technology, which is defined as an EM frequency technology that utilizes RF (Radio Frequency) signals to induce sound within the cranial cavity of the target. V2K literally pipes thoughts directly into people’s heads without them knowing it.

Kofron bases his information on his own experience as an insider in this field, and also as recent victim of V2K himself. He was attacked once he went public. He claims he has been assaulted with a beta version which is especially nasty, piping thoughts into his head such as:

“Everyone’s against you”

“Please be quiet or we’re going to kill you”

“Don’t work again or we’re going to kill you” 

“You’re the lab rat now motherfucker”

Kofron claims the Total Individual Control Technology attacks are attempting to turn him against his former work colleagues, friends and family. However, since he was trained in this area, he knows that the voices are technological and can defend himself against the manipulations once he hears them.

Kofron echoes exactly what Duncan has warned about: individual-specific attacks. Duncan states that every person has a “unique resonance signature”, and in almost exactly the same words, Kofron states that:

“… the DNA of the individual is used to determine the resonant frequency of the DNA itself, the resonant frequency is then used to fine tune the technology … to tune it perfectly to the resonant frequency of the targeted individual’s DNA.”

The Drive to Create a Worldwide DNA Database

This leads into another aspect of the NWO agenda: the drive to create a worldwide DNA database. When seen in the light of Total Individual Control Technology, the acquisition of an entire population’s DNA takes on a very sinister meaning. It is no coincidence that Amazon and Google (who are ultimately controlled by the same force as David Icke suggests) are racing each other, along with Microsoft, IBM and other companies, to assemble a DNA database as quickly as they can. Those in power who gain access a completed worldwide DNA database and total individual control technology would have a horrifying weapon at their disposal to target literally anyone they wanted.

Compound found in green tea dissolves dangerous plaque found in blood vessels

by Isabelle Z., Natural News:

Green tea already gets a lot of attention for its potential to fight cancer, but there’s another very important benefit that is making the beverage an even more attractive option than it already is. Scientists have found that a compound in green tea can dissolve the protein plaques in blood vessels that can cause heart attacks.

Scientists already know that EGCG, or epigallocatechin-3-gallate, a compound found in green tea, can reduce the amyloid plaques in the brain that lead to Alzheimer’s disease. It turns out that this effect also carries over to blood vessels in general, and the life-saving potential of this discovery is huge.

Glyphosate linked to autism; how to detox this “sleeper toxin” from your body

0

by Ethan Huff, Natural News:

As many as one out of every two children is expected to be diagnosed with autism by the year 2025, and research scientist Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., has concluded that one of the most prolific causes in the world today is the deadly crop chemical known as glyphosate.

The primary active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, glyphosate was originally developed as an industrial cleansing agent to chelate heavy metals and other substances out of clogged pipes. When it was discovered that glyphosate can also kill microbes, it was eventually transformed into what would eventually become one of the most widely used weed killers in conventional agriculture.

If As Many As 1/3 of Us Are Electromagnetic Sensitive to Some Degree, How Do You Know That You and Your Kids Aren’t? Symptoms and Severity Vary. Has Your Doctor Said Anything?

by B.N. Frank, Activist Post:

Unless you are in perfect health 24/7 – 365 days a year, how would you know that you aren’t sensitive to some degree to any or all sources of “Electrosmog”?

Experts say up to 3% of all people are clinically hypersensitive, as many as one-third of us to a lesser degree.

A lesser degree to not being clinically hypersensitive is nothing to sneeze at, don’t you think?  So consider Electrosmog like you would other sources of harmful smog.  Most agree that smog isn’t good for our health.  Exposure can cause allergies, asthma, COPD, cancer, etc. – not necessarily immediately but eventually.

10 Cool Season Plants You Can Grow Today!

0

by Tess Pennington, Ready Nutrition:

Who’s itching to get back in the garden and start growing some yummy veggies? For those who are in the “I can’t wait” group (I’m definitely in this group), there are a few vegetable varieties that you can grow now and tend to do well in colder conditions. In fact, sometimes the cold weather makes certain vegetables taste better! My grandfather always planted his turnip greens in the fall so they would get some frost on them. He said they always tasted better that way.

That made me ask why this was? I found out that when colder temperatures hit vegetables like parsnips, celery, carrots and, kale it causes a biological reaction and the vegetables begin producing sugars, thus making them sweeter. Pretty neat, huh? That said, you want to plant cool-season crops early enough in the fall or spring so they can complete their full cycle up to harvest before the temperatures get too disagreeable. As well, make sure you that you plant early enough in fall to allow plants to reach maturity before hard frosts hit or the daytime temperature drops too low. In spring, you’ll need to take the opposite approach, waiting to plant until the air and soil temperatures are warm enough for the plants to thrive.

Growing in the cooler temperatures also have fewer insect infestations that bother growing plants.

10 Cool Season Plants You Can Grow Today

Even though the days are still cool, there are some seeds you can start today.

  1. Beets – The trick to growing beets is to not plant them deeply. 1/2 inch to 1 inch deep is sufficient! Go with 1 inch deep, as the temperature warms, because it will be cooler underground. When the beet matures, you want to see a portion of the root above ground. You can use the greens in salads or stir-fry, or give them your livestock as a treat.
  2. Broccoli – In the Fall or Spring, plant broccoli in full sun. They love the sunshine! Too much shade causes legginess and slow maturation. When the plant matures, it will bear five to six-inch heads but new side shoots will produce so you can harvest regularly.
  3. Bunching Onion – These little guys will be one of the first seeds to germinate and want to be grown in groups of 6 or more. Start seeds 6 weeks before your last frost date and plant in successions for a continuous harvest.
  4. Cabbage – Who doesn’t like fresh cole slaw or sauteed cabbage in their stir fry? The great thing about cabbage is it can be stored for up to a month in the refrigerator. An easy way to ensure cabbages grow big heads is to make sure you have quality soil and a good nitrogen-rich fertilizer to give them while they are growing. As well, adding lots of compost right before planting will ensure the small cabbage plants grow to their maximum growth.
  5. Carrots – The secret to growing carrots is to plant them in heavily composted, sandy soil. Mulching really helps keep the soil moist so the carrots can grow fast and keep weeds out. As well, plant the carrots in full sun and strategically space them so they have room to grow.
  6. Kale – This green leafy vegetable is the talk of the town these days thanks to its big health benefits. Growing kale is a breeze and will produce is as little as 50 days if you give it the right conditions. If you are planting in during the cool seasons, plant it in full sun and plant with some companion plants like beets, celery, cucumbers, herbs, onions, spinach, chard, and potatoes. Water well and give your kale some organic fertilizer every 6-8 weeks for optimum growth.
  7. Peas – Peas are easy to grow, so are an ideal first crop for beginner gardeners. They are simply one of the easiest plants to grow. Start seeds outside after the last frost date. Plant them with low-growing companions plants like carrots, radish, and turnips.
  8. Radish – Growing radishes is one of the easiest seeds to add to the garden. These little guys want to grow for you! Plant radishes in a seedbed with adequate drainage and space seeds ½ inch to an inch deep and one inch apart in rows 12 inches apart. Radishes need full sun and little to no fertilizer.
  9. Spinach – This is one of my favorite leafy greens to plant while it’s still cold out. Spinach loves cool weather and many gardeners have two crops; one planted 4 to 6 weeks before the last frost in the spring, and again 6 to 8 weeks before the first frost in the fall. Make sure your soil has a neutral pH. Spinach is one of the few vegetables (along with beets and chard) that prefers a neutral to alkaline soil (pH 7.0 or above).
  10. Swiss Chard – This vegetable variety is as prolific as it is tolerant to the growing conditions. It has a long growing season and is a great substitute for spinach if you’re looking to shake things up in the kitchen. Soak seeds overnight to help expedite the germination process. Sow seeds two weeks before your last frost date. When seedlings emerge, thin to 12 inches apart. Give Swiss chard plants 1 or 2 inches of water each week and heavily mulch around them to conserve soil moisture and keep weeds at bay.

Herbs are also seed choices you can start early. They may need more time indoors to grow but will be ready to plant for the summer.

What to Eat When the Power Goes Out

0

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

When you’re in for some turbulent weather, do you head to the store with a list entitled, “Food for Power Outage?” Or do you already have a supply of food for power outages that you keep carefully hidden from your family? Many folks these days don’t have a way to cook when the power goes out, so that should be considered when creating your supply of the best foods for a power outage. If you don’t already have a stockpile of non-perishable food, it’s time to build one.
