CANNABIS NEARLY PUT THIS DAD’S ILLNESS INTO REMISSION — THEN THE STATE TOOK HIS KIDS AWAY

0

by Matt Agorist, The Daily Sheeple:
As a father suffering from hepatitis C, Michael Brooks exhausted every pharmaceutical option available to treat the disease and extend his time on Earth with loved ones, before ultimately turning to medical cannabis — a move which, indeed, changed everything.

It saved my life,” Brooks declared to the State of Tennessee of the THC-intensive oil responsible for vastly improved health, in a hearing discussed at a later point in this article.

As definitive as his statement seemed, not everything came up roses for the devoted dad — despite medical cannabis having facilitated the best health of Brooks’ more than four decades alive.

In fact, two years after his impassioned plea to his state of residence, Brooks languishes on the brink of death, gaunt, pale — and without his kids to treasure the precious remaining last moments of his existence — because government.

Chemicals Banned in Kids’ Toys Found in Mac and Cheese

by Julie Fidler, Natural Society:
Boxed macaroni and cheese is often a favorite food among youngsters, but a recent study suggests the packaged food contains dangerous, endocrine-disrupting chemicals that have been banned in toys: phthalates. [1]

Phthalates are a group of toxic additives in plastics. They’re used to make plastics soft and flexible, and are commonly found in artificial fragrances, inks, coatings, adhesives, and other consumer and industrial products, the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) explains.

These chemicals are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in equipment and materials for food handling, processing, and packaging. Because of this, phthalates often wind up in high-fat, highly-processed foods.

Marlee Asks, How Do I Combat Pro-GMO Propaganda?

by SGT, SGT Report:
I received this email today from an informed young lady named Marlee who wants to know how she can combat the corporate propaganda about how GMO foods are awesome, because evidently many of her friends are under-informed and gullible. Here’s what she wrote:

I’m a frequent listener, and just wondering if you could shed some light on this video. I have a lot of friends who aren’t exactly informed on much of anything, only what they see on Facebook, shared by other idiots. This video is great for spreading the info that the war on GMOs is misinformed but I was hoping you could help me out in disproving a lot of the claims this video makes. Just for the sake of conversations with my ignorant friends. Some people need the awakening and aren’t getting it because of videos like this, but I am not confident enough to be able to argue the points made in it, just looking for a little help in that. Thanks for all you do, I’m new to the community and so far only listen on youtube, but I’m slowly moving to your other platforms as well.

Thank you.

All These People Have CURED Serious Diseases Using Nothing But Food Nutrients

by Jhoanna Robinson, Natural News:
When people are faced with a serious ailment, their tendency is to go to a hospital and have themselves checked by a general practitioner. They then take the medication prescribed by the doctor and hope everything will be alright. These people, on the other hand, took a different direction when it came to searching for a cure.

Meet 45-year-old Suffolk, England hotel manager Nicole Green, who had been diagnosed in 2008 with multiple sclerosis (MS), a neurological disease that is characterized by vision impairment and a loss of motor control. She reportedly cured herself with a diet of flax seeds and fish. Then there‘s 52-year-old West Wycombe retired civil servant Bill Rogers, who, instead of taking statins to regulate his cholesterol levels, turned to food such as sweet potatoes, chickpeas, and soya.

Study of 700,000 People in 46 Countries Shows How Lazy America Is

0

by Julie Fidler, Natural Society:
Americans have more luxuries and more opportunities to lay back and do nothing than perhaps any other country in the world. Perhaps that’s why on a global scale, the U.S. is one of the laziest countries on Earth, according to a Stanford University study. [1]

The great Ron Swanson once said:

“The whole point of [America] is if you want to eat garbage, balloon up to 600 pounds and die of a heart attack at 43, you can! You are free to do so. To me, that’s beautiful.”

Sunscreen Ingredient Becomes Toxic in Sunlight and Water

by Mike Barrett, Natural Society:
A chemical commonly found in sunscreen breaks down into toxic compounds when exposed to sun and water, research shows.

Avobenzone is an oil-soluble compound that is notable for its ability to absorb ultraviolet (UV) light. It is most often an ingredient in sunscreen and cosmetics, including lip balms and moisturizers. The compound converts UV rays into safer wavelengths that don’t damage the skin, and transforms UV energy into thermal energy. [1]

The chemical was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in commercial cosmetics in 1988. It is a known endocrine-disruptor.

Frugal Prepping: This Survival Food is One of the Highest Sources of Protein

by Joshua Krause, Ready Nutrition:
So, by now, Guys and Gals, there are many factions to prepping and they all have their time and place, as well as their use. If a light bulb “comes on” when reading the material, then the mission is accomplished. I have mentioned in many of the articles the importance of taking in protein and its use as both a nutritious energy source, as well as in tissue repair and cellular growth.

With the exception of the recommendation of certain supplements that I use regularly, most of what I recommend falls within everyone’s budget. Isn’t that the objective as a survivalist and prepper? To receive the most return on your investment? Well, this is no different here. I wish to recommend the sardine…yes, you read it correctly!…the sardine, as a part of your diet. Let’s jump right into it.

Environmental Nightmare! Dozens Of Highly Toxic Substances Have Been Found In Tap Water All Over America

0

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
After reading this article, you will never look at tap water the same way again. Most Americans have generally assumed that the water coming out of our taps is perfectly safe, but the Flint water crisis and other similar incidents are starting to help people to understand that there are some very dangerous substances in our water. In particular, I am talking about things like arsenic, lead, atrazine, perchlorate and a whole host of pharmaceutical drugs. According to an absolutely stunning NRDC report, close to 77 million Americans received their water from systems “that violated federal protections” in 2015. And even if you get your water from a system that meets federal standards, that still does not mean that it is safe.

INCOMING!

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:
Here we go….

Were it not for the provision that Pat Toomey, the Pennsylvania Republican, put into the Senate’s proposed health care reform, this legislation would be moderately important but hardly momentous. Toomey’s provision, however, makes it this century’s most significant domestic policy reform.

It required tenacity by Toomey to insert into the bill a gradually arriving, but meaningful, cap on the rate of growth of per-beneficiary Medicaid spending. It is requiring of Toomey and kindred spirits strenuous efforts to keep it there, which reveals the Republican Party’s itch to slouch away from its uncomfortable but indispensable role as custodian of realism about arithmetic.

Well, no it doesn’t and he isn’t — that is, being realistic about arithmetic.

5 Common Nutrient Deficiencies That Are Ruining Your Health

0

by Joshua Krause, Ready Nutrition:
I often find myself looking up the nutrient profiles of the foods I eat. I try to do it on a regular basis, just to see where my diet is lacking. What I usually discover, is that I’m deficient in one nutrient or another. You really need to eat a lot of really high quality foods to take in the vitamins and minerals that are recommended by the FDA. And even when you pull that off, it’s still isn’t necessarily enough. The daily recommended values that you see printed on the sides of most food packages, often reflect the minimum nutrients you need, rather than the most optimum nutrient intake.

And I know that I’m not alone. Despite the fact that people living in the United States have access to more food than anyone else in the world, or throughout human history for that matter, millions of Americans are still deficient in many different kinds of nutrients. The most common of which include:
