Science journal confirms eating turmeric cured myeloma cancer in 57-year-old woman

0

by Rhonda Johansson, Natural News

After undergoing three rounds of chemotherapy and four stem cell transplants and still finding herself sick and weak, blood cancer patient, Dieneke Ferguson, believed she reached the end of her tether. She was told she had exhausted all her options. “Nothing worked: there was just too much cancer….there was nothing else I could do,” she recalled in an interview with The Daily Mail. Ferguson, though, refused to accept the “inevitable” and turned towards an alternative treatment: curcumin. The polyphenol, which is the main compound of turmeric, is what has been keeping her alive and well for the last five years, she says. Her extraordinary story will be featured in an upcoming study in the British Medical Journal.

The North London resident was first diagnosed with myeloma in 2007. This is a form of blood cancer where plasma cells become abnormal and release a type of antibody called paraprotein which has no known useful function. Unlike most cancers, myeloma does not form a tumor. Myeloma accounts for only two percent of all recorded cancer cases, and is one of the least understood variety. It remains incurable, with diagnosed patients told they have a life expectancy of only five years — if they’re lucky. Patients with myeloma are typically prescribed several rounds of chemotherapy along with invasive treatments to stabilize blood levels. But while Ferguson followed these treatment plans obediently, she saw no results. At a loss, she decided to start a new treatment after an internet support group told her to try curcumin.

“I had nothing to lose,” she said.

Ferguson began taking eight grams of curcumin in tablet form daily. This is equivalent to about two teaspoonfuls of pure powdered curcumin. Within only 15 months, Ferguson noticed a considerable difference in her overall health. It wasn’t just a feeling either; oncologists saw that her plasma blood levels were almost normal. These blood counts have remained within the normal range for the last five years.  

Jamie Cavenagh, professor of blood diseases at London’s Barts Hospital, who reviewed Ferguson’s case, was bemused. “When you review her chart, there’s no alternative explanation [for her recovery] other than we’re seeing a response to curcumin,” he said.

Ferguson said she will continue to take her supplements. She reports herself as happy, healthy, and enjoying a “high-quality life.”

Curcumin as a natural cancer treatment

This may come as a surprise but: food heals. Ferguson’s story is quite inspiring, but it isn’t something we haven’t heard of before. Several stories of the healing properties of various herbs and spices have reached our ears for some time now. Unfortunately, we have nothing to really back it up, as medical studies regarding alternative treatments to cancerremain lacking. There are several factors involved here, but one reason is that there simply isn’t any return of investment in studying natural herbs. As mentioned in the same Daily Mail article, “[studies that involve natural and alternative treatments] cost millions, and the investments could never be repaid as there is no money to be made from sales of a natural compound that cannot be patented.”

Still, there is enough data to suggest a very “real” effect of curcumin in cancer therapy. The compound has been studied to reduce the symptoms of cardiovascular conditions, depression, and dementia. Health experts say that the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of curcumin can help fight off almost all forms of cancer. These assumptions though remain to be verified as funding for such types of research will probably never be received. Stay up to date on breaking news about turmeric and curcumin at Turmeric.news.

A New Bill In Congress Would Prevent Any Baby With A Heartbeat From Being Aborted

0

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

A new bill being considered by the U.S. House of Representatives would make it illegal for an abortion to be performed on any fetus with a detectable heartbeat.  This bill is known as “the Heartbeat Protection Act”, and it would be a massive victory for the pro-life movement in this country if it becomes law.  So far about 170 members of the House are behind this bill, but it will need more votes than that to pass.  And even if it passes the House, it would still have to get through the Senate, and if just a few RINOS in the Senate vote against the bill that would be enough to block it.

But even though the road ahead looks challenging, that is not an excuse to quit fighting.  Ultimately, polls have shown that most Americans would support this kind of a law

A new bill in Congress, HR490, would make the presence of that heartbeat the standard for outlawing an abortion.

Some 170 House members back the Heartbeat Protection Act, which had its first hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday. Polling by the Barna Group shows 69 percent of Americans back the bill.

“That’s 86 percent of Republicans, 61 percent of Independents, and yes, even a Democrat majority by 55 percent,” said Faith2Action president Janet Porter, the originator of the first heartbeat bill, at a Capitol Hill news conference.

If this bill gets through Congress and it is signed into law by President Trump, it will almost certainly be challenged in court.

In the end, it is likely that a case such as this would make it all the way to the Supreme Court, and some conservatives are already welcoming such an outcome.  As President Trump appoints more conservative justices, a case such as this could set an important new precedent.

Personally, I am so glad that pro-life members of the House of Representatives are doing something to move the ball forward.  Since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, nearly 60 million children have been murdered in America’s abortion mills, and if we continue to kill babies on an industrial scale there is no future for our country.

Over the past few days, pro-life activists have been posting some rather startling statistics about abortion on social media

That statistic about Down syndrome babies in the U.K. is very sad.  In some countries, the percentage of Down syndrome babies that are aborted is actually closer to 100 percent.

But just because you have Down syndrome that doesn’t mean that your life is not worth living.  This is a point that actor Frank Stephens made very powerfully last week as he testified to Congress

Last week, actor and Down syndrome advocate Frank Stephens powerfully testified before the House Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Committee on Appropriations about the value of life — specifically the value of the lives of those born with Down syndrome.

“I am a man with Down syndrome, and my life is worth living,” he emphatically stated during a committee hearing on Wednesday.

Cellphones driving modern humans to the brink of insanity? New science reveals young brains DERANGED by cellphone radiation exposure

0

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

It’s fairly obvious to most intelligent people that modern society is going insane. It’s especially true among today’s hyper-connected youth who seem to be truly deranged and mentally ill, hyperventilating over every issue imaginable such as “net neutrality” or the election of Donald Trump. The lunacy of modern society has never been more extreme, and many of us who observe all this are wondering is there a common cause behind the insanity?

As it turns out, the mass poisoning of human brains with cellphone radiation has only been going on for a generation or so. It may be the common cause behind the insanity, and California health authorities have just confirmed this possibility by issuing new warnings about the adverse brain effects of cellphone radiation exposure.

“The research suggests cellphones could increase our risk for brain cancer and tumors, low sperm count, headaches, as well as impaired memory, hearing, and sleep,” reports CBS News / San Francisco. In other words, cellphone radiation has been found to directly interfere with normal brain function, leading people to demonstrate abnormal cognitive function. This, combined with the brain-warping harmful effects of social media, seems to have driven our society to the brink of runaway mental illness across the masses.

Just as the Romans destroyed their civilization with the help of lead poisoning in the water aqueducts, we may be destroying our own civilization by frying all our brains with cellphone radiation (and thereby driving our people insane).

Cellphone radiation brain damage explains how snowflakes and crybullies came into existence

According to the article linked above, 95 percent of Americans are now using cellphones on a regular basis. This is even true among today’s youth who seem to be addicted to the devices (as portals for social media chats, photo sharing and the like). But is all this device time frying young brains and interfering with neurological development?

Could cellphone radiation exposure, in other words, be responsible for the “snowflake generation” of fragile crybullies and emotional wrecks that now seem to dominate college campuses across our nation? A new documentary called “Generation Zapped” looks at the stunning health risks associated with wireless technology and mobile devices. Found at GenerationZapped.com, the new documentary dares to examine the medical and health implications of prolonged cellphone radiation exposure. See the trailer here:

The documentary also covers smart meters and how they expose entire buildings full of people to electromagnetic radiation pollution.

The wireless industry is the new “Big Tobacco”

Inherent in the film is coverage of the massive scientific cover-up being waged by the industry. We’re talking about a “Big Tobacco-style” cover-up of scientific evidence of harm. Powerful corporations that are deeply invested in wireless technology spend billions of dollars each year lobbying lawmakers and regulators to bury the truth about electropollution and the risk of EMF exposure.

More research confirms: There is definitely a link between autism and mercury

by Isabelle Z., Natural News

As some people continue to deny that there is a link between autism spectrum disorder and mercury, a pair of new studies have now been added to the growing pile of evidence illustrating just how wrong they are.

The research involved meta-analysis of studies investigating the link between mercury and autism spectrum disorder that were carried out over the past 12 years. This type of study is highly advantageous as it allows researchers to consolidate vast piles of research, which can often be complex and even conflicting.

The first meta-analysis, which was carried out by researchers from the Shahrekord University of Medical Sciences in Iran, was focused specifically on mercury. The second one, which was conducted by Tehran University of Medical Sciences researchers, looked at mercury as well as other heavy metals like lead. In both cases, cutting-edge statistical techniques were used to yield unbiased results.

These meta-analyses investigated the mercury levels in various types of specimens, including hair, urine, whole blood, and red blood cells, with the first one also exploring brain tissue. In both studies, a significantly higher concentration of mercury was found in the red blood cells belonging to people with autism spectrum disorder compared to healthy controls. The first one also noted higher levels of mercury in whole blood taken from patients with autism spectrum disorder.

Mercury is a very powerful neurotoxin that can lead to negative effects even in small amounts. Most people are exposed to mercury either via methylmercury in fish or ethylmercury, which can be found in the controversial vaccine preservative thimerosal.

According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, fetuses and small children are especially vulnerable to the negative effects of mercury, which include mental retardation, blindness, brain damages, seizures, incoordination, and an inability to speak.

This leads one to wonder why public health officials continue to push annual flu shots on the masses. Many of these shots contain mercury-laden thimerosal. In fact, guidelines for the flu vaccine say that all kids aged six months or older need the shot. These vaccines are also routinely pushed on pregnant women and those who might become pregnant – precisely the groups of people who should be going nowhere near anything that contains even the tiniest amount of mercury!

Mercury is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, and it is believed to raise the risk of neurodevelopmental disorders like tics, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and speech delays in addition to autism spectrum disorder.

Link between mercury and autism long established

Scientists have long known about the link between the mercury in childhood vaccinescontaining thimerosal and autism. A 2004 study, for example, found a close correlation between the prevalence of autism and mercury doses in MMR vaccines from the late 1980s up through the mid-‘90s. The authors of that study, which was published in the peer-reviewed Medical Science Monitor, recommended that all vaccines stop using thimerosal.

Venezuela Faces the Return of Forgotten Diseases

by J. G. Martinez D., The Organic Prepper:

Dear fellows, I want to tell a little story of this last week.

My son had a rash in his little armpits and other parts. So his mom took him to the doctor, within walking distance from our subdivision (our SUV is still busted). After the subsequent blood test (according to my wife it was a real spectacle. He is a strong kid and a task force between my wife, the doctor and a nurse was needed to get the blood sample…well at least we know he is able to defend himself.) The lab result (freaking expensive because the reactants are scarce) was salmonella.

by Erin Elizabeth, Health Nut News:

Last week, tests by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals at the Sligo Water System tested positive for Naegleria fowleri, a brain-eating amoeba.

“The positive test came from the valve where the water system takes in supplemental water from Bossier City. Sligo Water System has stopped using supplemental water from Bossier City Wednesday.

Water system officials are notifying people and businesses from 300 Sligo Road at Bayou Drive to the Orchard subdivision, Lucky Estates, Plantation mobile home park and ending at the Sligo store, 1898 Sligo Road.”1

Goodbye Monsanto; Hello Bayer On “Steroids”

by Catherine Frompovich, Activist Post:

Oh, how prognosticating words about Monsanto apparently have come true!

And people say there’s nothing to astrology!

Moneywatch published online on June 5, 2018, “As Bayer Monsanto merger closes, a toxic corporate name to be retired” not quite five years after I published the article “GMOs: What Do The Stars Say Astrologically?” regarding Monsanto with how I ended that article:

However, as this writer assesses the GMO issue, Coppolino’s prognostications ought to revitalize all who are working to expose the dangers of GMO farming and foods, plus bring new-found hope and unfailing determination. When certain aspects are written in the stars, who knows what can happen. We just have to keep on, keeping on.

Prescription For Violence: The Corresponding Rise of Antidepressants, SSRIs & Mass Shootings

by Brian Miller, Activist Post:

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), a mass murder occurs when at least four people are murdered, not including the shooter, over a relatively short period of time during a single incident. Over the last 30 years, the United States has seen a significant increase in mass shootings, which are becoming more frequent and more deadly.

Seemingly every time a mass shooting occurs, whether it’s at a synagogue in Pittsburgh or a nightclub in Orlando, the anti-gun media and politicians have a knee-jerk response – they blame the tragedy solely on the tool used, namely firearms, and focus all of their proposed “solutions” on more laws, ignoring that the murderer already broke numerous laws when they committed their atrocity.

10 Ways your visit to the hospital can get you killed

by S.D. Wells, Natural News:
Modern science and Western medicine can certainly save your life in certain situations, and nobody should take for granted the fact that thousands of American doctors and surgeons save lives every day in hospitals and emergency care facilities. Without hospitals, many life-threatening situations would have much worse odds of survival, especially if you are getting broken bones mended, deep wounds sewn up, having a baby, or emergency surgery for internal bleeding. The scariest part of visiting a hospital, though, is not the problem you checked in to get fixed, but ten other life-threatening “serial killers” that stalk and infect their “prey,” often killing the poorly “defended” patients, who recently checked in, but may never check out again.

We like to think U.S. hospitals are the top in the world regarding technology and safety, but what if you found out that all the advanced technology and doctor expertise in the world is useless when safety gets thrown out the window, and health hazards are coming at you right and left, crippling your immunity and threatening every organ in your body? Most people believe that a hospital is where they should go to be saved from their injuries and sicknesses, but in actuality, the odds of dying in a hospital are far greater than anyone would ever think.

As migrants arrive in Texas from the Congo, media buries the medical fact that Africans can carry Ebola without showing any symptoms

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

It is a medical fact that people of African descent have enhanced natural immunity to various viral infections, including Ebola. In fact, migrants from Africa may carry Ebola and show no symptoms whatsoever. This simple, irrefutable fact appears to be completely unknown to all U.S. doctors, journalists and CDC “experts” who claim Ebola can’t possibly be carried to the U.S. from Congo because, they often explain, nobody is showing any symptoms.

Yet it is a well-known medical fact that Ebola carriers from Africa may be entirely symptom-free. If you don’t believe me, go back to the June 27, 2000 article in the New York Times, authored by Lawrence K. Altman. The headline is, “People Carrying Ebola, in Some Cases, May Be Free of Symptoms.”

Coriander shown to be a potential natural remedy for diabetes

by Ellaine Castillo, Natural News:

A group of researchers conducted a systematic review that revealed the potential use of coriander (Coriandrum sativum) as a treatment for diabetes mellitus. This study, which was published in Herbal Medicine: Open Access, reviewed articles that were published about coriander treatment of diabetes mellitus in animal models.

  • Many studies are exploring the use of herbs, such as coriander, in treating diabetes mellitus since existing treatments cause unwanted side effects.

Curcumin targets aggressive and lethal forms of cancer while leaving noncancerous cells unharmed

0

by Isabelle Z., Natural News:

The fact that turmeric can help to fight cancer isn’t exactly news, but a recently published study underscores its superiority by demonstrating the Asian spice’s potential to target some of the deadliest types of cancer while leaving healthy cells undisturbed.

Curcumin, the most active constituent in turmeric, is a powerful antioxidant and is responsible for most of the spice’s magical health benefits. Studies have already shown, for example, that curcumin can cut the growth rate of prostate cancer tumor progression in half. Other studies have found that supplementing with curcumin can lead to a 36 percent decline in lung tumor size and a 40 percent reduction in colon tumor development.

Woman, 67, who battled blood cancer for five years ‘recovers after treating it with TURMERIC’ in the first recorded case of its kind

by Ben Spencer, Daily Mail:

  • Dieneke Ferguson, 67, had given up on gruelling treatments and chemotherapy
  • With her myeloma spreading she began taking 8g of curcumin a day
  • The cancer stabilised in what doctors say was the first case of its kind

A woman who battled blood cancer for years without success finally halted the disease with turmeric, it has been reported.

Dieneke Ferguson is now leading a normal life after giving up on gruelling treatments that failed to stop it.

Doctors say her case is the first recorded instance in which a patient has recovered by using the spice after stopping conventional medical treatments.

With her myeloma spreading rapidly after three rounds of chemotherapy and four stem cell transplants, the 67-year-old began taking 8g of curcumin a day – one of the main compounds in turmeric.

 Dieneke Ferguson had been diagnosed with the blood cancer myeloma in 2007 and had undergone three rounds of chemotherapy as well as four stem cell transplants

The cancer, which has an average survival of just over five years, was causing increasing back pain and she had already had a second relapse.

But it stabilised after Mrs Ferguson, from north London, came across the remedy on the internet in 2011 and decided to try it as a last resort.

 The tablets are expensive – £50 for ten days – but as kitchen turmeric contains just 2 per cent curcumin it would be impossible to eat enough to get the same dose.

Mrs Ferguson, who was first diagnosed in 2007, continues to take curcumin without further treatment and her cancer cell count is negligible.

Her doctors, from Barts Health NHS Trust in London, wrote in the British Medical Journal Case Reports: ‘To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report in which curcumin has demonstrated an objective response in progressive disease in the absence of conventional treatment.’

The experts, led by Dr Abbas Zaidi, said some myeloma patients took dietary supplements alongside conventional treatment but ‘few, if any, use dietary supplementation as an alternative to standard antimyeloma therapy’.
