reasts are amazing – they are beautiful, they nourish babies, and they have an intelligence of their own. Breasts have so many incredible benefits for the health of humanity, the power of women, and the nurturing of the future generations. Your breasts deserve a medal of honour – plus nurturing, pampering, and respect. Yet, our breasts are suffering from the dangerous effects of rising environmental toxins in our food, water, air, and toiletries, degrading media, restrictive fashion, and lack of empowering health education for women. I had a dream a few weeks ago that I was at a conference and the organizers asked me to get up on stage and speak about breast health. They said it was vital that we get more people to understand and value the importance of caring for our healthy breasts and that in order to get people’s attention I needed to be topless to speak. While I was still pondering whether or not I felt comfortable with being topless on stage, I woke up. A few days later Angelina Jolie announced

her decision to have her healthy breasts surgically removed because of her potential cancer risk. This action has inspired me even more to realize how vital it is that we join in this conversation and speak about how to naturally care for our breasts, how our environment, diet, and lifestyle impact our health, and why breast health is more important than ever before. Thus, my intention is to share positive inspiring information to support women to love their breasts and learn about ways to naturally care for our amazing breasts. Let’s uplift breasts to the status level they deserve! 7 Amazing Things To Know About Breasts Breasts

- Bras restrict the movement of lymphatic fluid through the breasts, underarm, and shoulders, thus causing toxins to build up in the breast tissue. Underwire bras are the worst culprit, as the metal also can disrupt the energy flow

through the breast area. A recent French study has shown that women who don’t wear bras actually have perkier breasts even as they age. Exercising, dance, and rebounding without a bra also allows the body’s movements to support lymphatic flow and proper drainage of the breasts. The natural movement of the breasts as the body exercises and moves is another essential component to lymphatic health in the breasts. Breasts need massage - There is no muscle tissue in a women’s breasts, so breasts need assistance to enhance circulation through the breast. A woman’s breasts are mostly fat tissue along with milk ducts, connective tissue, nerves, and lymph glands. Self breast massage is an important regular practice for women to support their blood and lymph circulation and reduce build-up of toxins and hormones in the fatty tissue of the breasts. Massage your breasts daily with a natural cold-pressed vegetable oil, such as coconut, almond, or jojoba oil. You can also add pure essential oils such as rose, jasmine, or clary sage to your massage oil base.

I’m not talking about “man-handling” here, I’m talking about gentle self massage in which you get to know what your breasts feel like, notice any changes, and use gentle lymphatic and circulatory movements to enhance health. Breasts are hot - It has been welldocumented that a woman’s breasts will synchronize with her newborn baby to become the perfect temperature. When a mother and baby are skin-to-skin postpartum, her breasts will naturally adjust their temperature to regulate the baby’s body temperature optimally. A mother of twins will have each of her breasts match the ideal temperature for each one of her twins. A women’s breasts are more reliable and efficient than any baby warmer. So breasts are totally hot – just not in the way people usually talk about. Breastmilk has a gazillion medicinal uses - Breast-milk is pretty much

the most amazing food substance available to mankind. Mother’s milk is completely unique and not possible to replicate (despite what you may have heard from the formula companies).

None But Ourselves Can Free Our Minds

by David DeGraw

17th

eventeen years ago, I read a book called The Evolving Self. Though I didn’t realize it at the time, it profoundly affected the direction of my life. Here’s the section of the book that became a splinter in my mind and resonated the most with me: “In order to gain control of consciousness, we must learn how to moderate the biases built into the machinery of the brain. We allow a whole series of illusions to stand between ourselves and reality…. These distortions are comforting, yet they need to be seen through for the self to be truly liberated… to come ever closer to getting a glimpse of the universal order, and of our part in it.” Since reading that, I have dedicated my life to coming “ever closer to getting a glimpse of the universal order, and of our part in it.” After years of research and analysis, I’ve come to hard-fought, battle-tested conclusions that I’ve been sharing with people to great effect, and will share with you now. This will not be for the faint of heart. It will hit hard and we don’t have much time, so let’s get right down to it. At this point, if you spend much time researching power politics or the distribution of wealth, resources and basic necessities, it seems evident and undeniable, dare I say, “common sense,” that we, in fact, live in a neofeudal society built on debt and mental slavery.

That may sound like over-the-top rhetoric, and it obviously sounds extreme to propagandized and conditioned minds, and yes, it is extreme. However, it is the unfortunate reality of the present situation. The facts are there for the rational and unbiased mind to absorb and comprehend. If you take a few minutes of your time and read this through, it will easily be proven. We will look at how the system works, and then, hopefully, we will begin the process of evolving society together, as grandiose as that may sound. Let’s start by giving some context and perspective on present circumstances by breaking down some economic data. As Thomas Jefferson once said, “Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.”

Unprecedented Wealth For the past 35 years, with technological advancements, there has been an explosion in production and profits, in wealth creation. That unprecedented increase in wealth, as many of you know, has gone to the top economic 1%. Most of it, the lion’s share of it, went to not even the top economic 1%, but to the top one-

ell folks, it seems we can’t keep our little paper on the shelves, so to speak, as they’re gone half way through the month. I guess truth is more popular then one would think. Lorenzo and team have been working as hard as they can anchoring the paper with solid publicizing participators, business’s run by human beings willing to put their energy, financial and otherwise, behind what may be a unique phenomenon: a truthful newspaper with no agenda but freedom, a forum for a honest and positive exchange of informations, services, helpful products and good feelings for all. Subscriptions are up, and we’re looking eastward to fill up the rest of BC quick as can be and onwards. Anyone interested in giving a hand or feels the call please get in contact with lorenzo@ theagoranational.ca. So far funding for The New Agora has come directly from the people and businesses that have chosen to make a public stand for our freedom. That’s no small thing and deserving of fair reciprocity. I know where I shop and where I won’t. I guess in some way that’s the function of an agora. We’d like to thank everyone who sent in articles, stories, poetry and other works. There is only so much room even at our increased size of thirty-two pages, but keep on sending whatever you’re inspired to share. They’re fun to read and it’s nice to know you care. We go through so many but some do stand out and demand to see print. Sometimes even I get squeezed out of the paper for want of space and not cutting the general mustard. A must for people to read is the simplest way to put it, I suppose, whereas seeing print is concerned. Dan Merchant has been doing a fantastic job webmastering and moderating our online presences, updating them all the time, answering people with courtesy and intelligence and whatever else might be called for. All this on top of laying out the whole paper every month, research, graphic design…Plus three kids, beautiful wife, full time job or two. The man’s a marvel, and that includes his whole family. His father’s a dynamo, working tirelessly for us all, spreading the word, going so far as to personally build the stands on which the New Agora is presented every month. Our new distribution team is working out well, freeing more energy for expansion. Sandra Tait has joined the team and is a delight. The world might be crazy right now but we’re doing well in our own way. There are some amazingly interesting products coming out that fit the bill for getting rid of heavy metals and radioactive particles from the body, which is great news for us on the west coast of life and for the rest of everybody as well. I’ve heard that Rick Simpson’s cannabis oil is available in Canada which is great news but ought to be everywhere and affordable to everyone and soon! Trees all around our neighbourhood are still suffering from the combined chemtrail Fukushima microwaved good times we’re having here. Despite all that there have been beautiful days, days of spun gold, filled with the fluffiest clouds imaginable and actual skies of true blue. David Icke is spearheading a television channel to really get the word out there and into the mainstream. He’s a fabulous character, genuine and big-hearted, who has brought tremendous awareness to light. We’re grateful for all his hard work through the decades, as well as to all those who remain presently unmentioned yet not unthanked. We are tremendously grateful for all those so diligently trailblazing their lives right through conditioned awareness in the present day, showing us all we can be free, and are even grateful to those others playing the parts of the petty tyrants showing us otherwise. Gratitude does a good job of summing up our present intent, knowing that as the day dawns we’re once again faced with the opportunity to help ourselves grow up, and a little carpe diem goes a long way to creating a new moment for ourselves where anything is possible. I maintain that this ‘revolution evolution’, this evolution revolution is a personal affair. Certainly, Life is a shared experience, however evolution is entirely personal. Of course, get enough of those happening and then igniting our shared ‘bandwidth’ and who knows? 100th monkey time maybe. Love those monkeys. And though interfered with at the same frequency by cellphones towers and wifi and the like, we are far more powerful then any gizmos and whodads cooked up by lunatic members of our goofy race. So eat healthily, do your earthing and get some early morning sun. That’s why those ‘others’ are doing their worst to

disrupt and interfere all of it and us. Silly predators. What can you do? Being a parasite’s no fun and it doesn’t exactly offer the gift of far sightedness either. Remember that this bizarre matrix of theirs is the best they could come up with. What a joke! I played more intriguing and Machiavellian games as a tot, which is how and when I taught myself all about war and its inevitable result of no one winning at that game. So, we know the score. We know what’s bad for us and we know what’s good. We’ve all gotten sick on the shit and are going for the elixirs. We know what’s true and what’s a lie. Who is lying and who is not. Just look at the eyes, listen to your gut, and follow the money. Helping one another is better than hurting one another. Eating good clean natural fruits and vegetables and all the rest is better than those monstrous creations of limited consciousness’ presently trying to poison the world. Governments are a bad idea. We can come up with better forms of community then oppression and punishment being the rule of the day. Seeing where all these crazy ‘people’ want to drive the rest of us is easy if you dare…just look over that precipice…bottomless ain’t it? The whole system of education, bottom to top, is a sham and an evil mind, soul and body trick to keep humans enslaved. Same goes with all religion and all politics. Capitalism, communism, all the isms and all the cons, they are what they are, open your eyes and buyer beware. We know better: time to act like it. Personal responsibility cures the fearful need for government. Cooperation cures the soulless madness called corporation (and then some!). There are plenty of cleaner fuels and alternatives to everything! We know what cures cancer and what causes it. We know who we really are and know why we are here now. No wonder we’re challenged! Now imagine how well the New Agora could do if it actually received the minimum of support from its readers. Obviously they are reading and passing the paper around to spread the word, and with any luck some are even applying what they read to their lives. Some write to us, some do geurilla distyribution, some send words of encouragement and the like. Many request our paper… others offer advice on how we could do better or where the paper is needed so desperately. Those folks participating as Advertisers support the paper financially and we are grateful for their help in making it possible for us grow to where we are presently covering Vancouver and so much more of BC than ever before: a fair return on their investment. However, we could be all over Canada and beyond, and, in a sense, we aught to be to truly effect the kind of change we’d all love to see on a larger scale. The question is how? We received a letter from a first time reader offering to either subscribe or simply send us $24 just to help. And it simply blew us away. Here’s why: we have 70,000 (or more) readers; now imagine if only 1,000 of those readers made the same offer (or twice that number for half as much and so on…), to what amounts to the price of two pints and some fries…or a cheap haircut…a t-shirt.. a couple of movies…that’s two dollars a month for a year: small potatoes. While twenty-four dollars doesn’t get you much these days, combine it with 999 more supporter/ participators and you get $24,000. With that amount in hand the New Agora would instantly double or triple its reach…. all for the price of two dozen doughnuts, or a bucket of bad chicken, from a small percentage of our readers. When looked at this way it’s amazing yet understandable how cheap and yet how far away freedom for all truly is. Help yourself already! Making our stand together we will succeed, and may in fact be the point of all this hoopla, anything less as a community will not. Remember this Agora is yours in direct relationship to your participation with same, much like life itself, I guess. We’ve been committed to bringing you the truest most vital information we can for years now, and continue to work as hard as we can for the good of us all. Will any of us be around in a year from now? That’s up to each and everyone of us individually and as a whole. It really isn’t rocket science. Let’s do our best for one another, for ourselves and our loved ones. That’s how we win. That’s how we evolve. That’s where the fun is. So let’s help ourselves to a better life together, one based on Love, Truth and Freedom! If that isn’t worth our commitment what is?

Where Do Cops Come From?

by Eric Peters a-w-i-p.com

ver wonder why there are men (and women) in costumes “policing” the rest of us? Most people accept this relationship as both given – and eternal. That there have always been men (if not always women) in costumes “policing” the rest of us. But, in fact, it’s a relatively novel thing. Think back to your schooldays. Do you recall any mention of police when you were learning about the colonial era and the American Revolution? There were sheriffs, yes – and the local militia. But these were concerned mostly with keeping the peace – that is, stepping in when someone harmed someone else. Up to and even during the Civil War – a titanic struggle between the fading remnants of the old republican idea and the centralized, omnipotent state that took its place – the idea of police as we know it was essentially unknown. It is a modern concept – one developed out of the company town idea. You may or may not recall the company town. It is a place – once upon a time, a very real place – in which the company not only employs nearly everyone but also controls nearly everyone, during work hours and – most relevant in terms of the discussion at hand – the rest of the time, too. This is achieved by paying the workers not in specie, but in “script” or tin coinage or some other form of fiat currency issued by the company – and only good at the

Page 6

company stores in the company town where all the company workers live. Even the worker’s homes are company homes. In the company town, everything you did was the company’s business. And to keep it all nicely organized, there were company police. - Sound familiar? Examples of these paternalistic – and authoritarian – “communities” include Bournville, founded by Cadbury Chocolate King George Cadbury – which was gently paternalistic. And also the less gently paternalistic Pullman in Chicago. You may recall the Pullman Railroad strike of 1894 – which got ugly, quickly. The cattle – oops, Pullman workers – had become recalcitrant.. They were more firmly dealt with. Often, they were dealt with by badged and costumed goons hired by the men who owned the company town. For example, the infamous Pinkertons – “pinks,” as they were once called. Shortly after the not-so-Civil War, founder Allan Pinkerton expanded his band of head-crackers into the largest private law enforcement organization in the world – with more “agents” than there were soldiers in the U.S. Army at the time. Andrew Carnegie and other corporatists used the “pinks” to keep the cattle in line. But, there was a problem. The cattle were still free-range. They could leave the company town – or the crowded city – and go somewhere beyond the reach of costumed enforcers. America – even post Civil War – was not yet a consolidated corporate entity. One could still live relatively free. But it was only a temporary reprieve – one based almost

entirely on remoteness from the clutches of the octopus and its costumed enforcers, i.e., the police. It would not be long before America – the entire continental United-at-gunpointStates – became one singular, insufferable, inescapable company town. One in which rights no longer existed only privileges – which could be rescinded at any time, for any reason: because now, everyone was “on the clock,” 24-7. Post the not-so-Civil War, the federal leviathan that squatted in DC looked upon the Pinkerton model and smiled. An army – literally, with military grades as well as military-style uniforms and the military attitude to go with it – was just what was needed to maintain “order” in the biggest company town the world had yet seen. But some light cosmetic retouching was in order. It would not do, from the standpoint of public relations, to have private (that is, corporate) law enforcers. These would have to be transformed into public servants and – just like that – Americans fell under the total authority of the police. A standing army of enforcers from whom there is no escape – and little recourse. Today, most Americans accept, without question, the company town ideal and the enforcers that go along with it. The former distinctions between a private army of goons – and an army of goons styled “public servants” have been effaced. People not only no longer chafe at being ordered around by buzz-cut barking goons – they have b e e n

conditioned revere their tormenters as selfless heroes working ever-so-hard to “protect” them! The transformation – and consolidation of absolute power – is both astonishing and fearful. In a company town, one could at least leave – and one could still lawfully defend oneself against an assault by a company goon. Even that is now denied us. To resist in any way – even if the costumed enforcer is acting illegally – is itself illegal. For example, the courts have ruled that a homeowner may not – legally – use force to defend his home or himself against a costumed enforcer who forces his way into the home, even if the break-in is utterly illegal. We are expected – required – to go limp, roll over, present our bellies and trust to the good offices of the “officer” that we won’t get kicked or worse. “Police” have become a class of persons immune from the normal rules of civilized human interaction. Almost a sacred priesthood. And we are expected to play the role of humble supplicant – thanking them for their “service.” Somewhere, far below, Alan Pinkerton is looking upward – and smiling. ________________ Eric Peters, an automotive columnist and former editorial writer for The Washington Times, is the author of Automotive Atrocities.

T he F ukushima C over - up by Dr Stuart Jeanne Bramhall Open.Salon.com

T

he New York Academy of Medicine celebrated the second anniversary of Fukushima’s nuclear disaster with a two day Fukushima Symposium on March 11th and 12th. Sponsored by the Helen Caldicott Foundation and Physicians for Social Responsibility, the event consisted of presentations from a broad range of physician and non-physician researchers specialized in the effects of nuclear radiation on the environment and human health. It was video taped and can be viewed free on-line (see links below). What the symposium makes crystal clear is that there has been a deliberate effort by Japanese government, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), the Obama administration, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) to minimize the importance of the long term health consequences of nuclear fallout, especially to children. Instead of backtracking on the billions of dollars he approved to subsidize TEPCO to build more US nuclear power plants, Obama is participating in an international cover-up to conceal the serious long term dangers of this technology. See: After 50 Years Nuclear Power Still not Viable Without Subsidies (http://bit.ly/dTk3sp) I found the March 11th presentation by Dr. Steven Starr of the Clinical Laboratory Science Program at the University of Missouri the most illuminating. The focus of Starr’s talk was the long term effects of Cesium-137, which is the main long term contaminant of soil and food following a nuclear accident. The research Starr presents directly contradicts a study WHO published two months ago called The Health Risk Assessment From the Nuclear Accident after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. The latter supports the Japanese government’s position that the radioactive contamination deposited immediately after meltdown has dissipated and there is no longer any risk of eating food produced there. Buoyed by the WHO study, the Japanese government has already declared Fukushima rice totally safe provided it emits less than 100 Becquerels (Bq) per kilogram (kg). (A Becquerel is one atomic disintegration per second.) Research conducted after Chernobyl contradicts this directive. According to Starr, children in the Ukraine and Belarus routinely exposed to more than 50 Bq per kg of Cesium-137 (from the Chernobyl meltdown) Chernobyl suffered irreversible heart damage. According to Starr WHO and IRCP are guilty of four main scientific errors: 1.

2.

3.

4.

WHO and IRCP quantify radiation exposure in Sieverts or milliSieverts (mSv). This is extremely controversial because a Sievert isn’t a measure of actual radiation exposure but of presumed radiation “effect” based on mathematical modelling. WHO and IRCP studies are based on an assumption that Cesium-137 is spread uniformly throughout the body, whereas their own research shows it bioaccumulates in specific organs. None of the WHO and IRCP studies incorporate Dr Yuri Bandazhevsky’s detailed research into Belarusian children exposed to Cesium-137 following Chernobyl, which has only recently been translated into English. None of the WHO and IRCP studies distinguish between external exposure and chronic internal exposure due to radionuclides that accumulate in vital organs.

Basic Scientific Facts About Cesium-137 and Fallout from Fukushima Cesium-137 is released as a gas and has chemical properties similar to potassium. Thus it reaches highest concentrations in potassium-rich foods, like berries and mushrooms and in animal products at the top of the food chain (e.g. milk and meat). In the body it accumulates in the same organs in which potassium accumulates (heart, pancreas and other endocrine organs, intestine and kidneys). Eight months after the Fukushima meltdown, the Japanese Science Ministry released a map showing that 11,580 square miles, 30,000 square kilometres, or 13% of the Japanese mainland, had been contaminated with Cesium-137. The official government map fails to designate any cesium-137 contamination in the Tokyo metropolitan area, unlike an independent survey done by Professor Yukio Hayakawa of Gunma University. (People may recall the government also tried to deny for two months that there had been any meltdowns.) Somewhere between 4500 and 7700 square miles (an area approximately the size of Connecticut) was found to have radiation levels that exceeded Japan’s previous allowable exposure limit of 1 mSv per year. Rather than evacuate this area, Japan chose to raise its acceptable radiation exposure from 1mSv to 20 mSv per year. Studies show that a dose of 20 mSv per year, will produce 1,000 additional cases of cancer in female infants and 500 in male infants (per 100,000 in their age group.). There will be also an additional 100 per 100,000 cancer cases in 30 year-old-males.

The Effect of Chronic Cesium-137 Exposure Based on Bandazhevsky’s research, Starr questions whether even 1 mSv (14,000 Bq) per year is safe in children, as WHO and ICRP claim. The figure is based on the assumption that absorbed Cesium-137 is distributed uniformly throughout the body. Research done by Dr. Yuri Bandazhevsky and his colleagues in Belarus between 1991 and 1999, found that children exposed to whole body radiation levels above 50 Bq per kg of body weight experienced irreversible damage to their heart and other vital organs. Bandazhevsky summarized his nine years of research in his paper entitled “Radioactive Cesium and the Heart.” With the help of friends, Starr has just finished editing an English translation of this work. It has never been translated before because shortly after Bandazhevsky presented it to the Parliament and President of Belarus, he was arrested and imprisoned. Just as Soviet physicians were forbidden to diagnose radiation-related illness following Chernobyl, the Belarusian government vigorously suppressed the work of Bandazhevsky, who was protesting government efforts to resettle people back into land badly contaminated with Cesium-137. Two million people in Belarus live on lands severely contaminated by cesium-137. Fourteen years following Chernobyl, most of the children there were in very poor health. 45 to 47% of high school graduates had physical disorders, including gastrointestinal anomalies, abnormal heart function and cataracts, and 40% were diagnosed with chronic “blood disorders” and malfunctioning thyroids.

The students placed six trays filled with Lepidium sativum, a type of garden cress, into a room without radiation, and six trays of the seeds into another room next to two routers that according to the girls’ calculations, emitted about the same type of radiation as an ordinary cellphone. Over the next 12 days, the girls observed, measured, weighed and photographed their results. By the end of the experiment the results were blatantly obvious — the cress seeds placed near the router had not grown. Many of them were completely dead. Meanwhile, the cress seeds planted in the other room, away from the routers, thrived..

he liver and brain are two metabolically active organs that are under constant attack from disease promoting free radicals. Elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels combined with blood glucose abnormalities and obesity cause damage to the cellular matrix of the liver and brain that worsen with time. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) affects an estimated 20 to 40% of adults in Western society and dementia can touch nearly half of those reaching their 85th birthday. Silymarin is the active compound found naturally in milk thistle that is shown to provide a significant degree of protection against NAFLD and abnormal brain aging.

The liver is called upon to perform more than 300 critical metabolic functions within our body. One of those functions is the formation of cholesterol and essential lipids that are required for cellular synthesis and repair. A diet high in processed carbohydrates and synthetic hydrogenated fats can result in excess blood triglycerides that become lodged in the hepatic cells and NAFLD can develop. NAFLD is a chronic disease that is characterized by inflammation of the organ that releases a flurry of free radicals and liver enzymes. Left unchecked, NAFLD can progress to cirrhosis, carcinoma and death. The result of research published in the journal Hepatitis Monthly demonstrates the effectiveness of treatment with silymarin for the treatment of NAFLD. Researchers noted a significant decline in liver enzyme markers that indicate reversal of the disease, and no serious side effects were reported as a result of the natural treatment.

Silymarin Found to Protect Nerves, S l o w B r a i n A g i n g P r o c e ss Silymarin is one of a small number of compounds able to cross the blood-brain barrier and affect neural function and chemical neurotransmitters. Long known for its ability to detoxify the liver, silymarin also exerts a powerful protective edge against nerve damage and brain preservation. Information from the journal Neurochemistry International shows that the nutrient is able to protect delicate glial cells in the brain against free radical damage that occurs as a result of low grade bacterial infection common in overweight and obese individuals. Also read: 10 Ways to Improve Your Liver Function for Better Health (http://bit.ly/ x1Nv0A)

Silymarin Inhibits Plaque Formation

One of the key indicators of Alzheimer’s disease are the protein amyloid plaques that form and prevent electrical and chemical signalling between neurons. It is known that plaque exists as a normal byproduct of metabolic activity in the brain and is not properly cleared in those exhibiting symptoms of dementia. The result of a study published in the journal Molecular Gerontology demonstrates that silymarin helps the brain to naturally clear amyloid plaque before it becomes tangled and restricts normal cellular communication. Silymarin from milk thistle is shown to be a powerful nutrient that assists multiple biological pathways in the liver and brain to maintain optimal organ function. Milk thistle is available as an inexpensive nutritional supplement. Nutritional experts recommend 250 to 450 mg per day to provide optimal effectiveness. Take advantage of natural silymarin to boost liver detoxification, prevent NAFLD and prevent the damage from free radicals on the delicate brain matrix.

Microwaves Destroy Cancer Fighting Nutrients by Mike Adams NaturalNews.com

M

icrowaves absolutely decimate the nutritional value of your food, destroying the very vitamins and phytonutrients that prevent disease and support good health. Previous studies have shown that as much as 98% of the cancer-fighting nutrients in broccoli, for example, are destroyed by microwaving. To understand why, you have to understand the nature of vitamins and phytonutrients (plant-based nutrients). These are very delicate molecules which are fragile. They are easily destroyed by heat, which is why raw plant foods contain more plant nutrients than cooked foods. Carotenoids, antioxidants and other molecules like DIM (in broccoli) or anthocyanins (in purple corn) are all easily destroyed by microwave energy.

Microwaves “Nuke” Your Food at a Cellular Level Microwaving is the worst way to cook foods because microwaves excite the water molecules inside whatever you’re cooking, causing heat to be formed from the inside out. This results in a cell-by-cell “nuking” of the food (such as broccoli, carrots, etc.), causing the near-total

Page 10

molecular decomposition of the vitamins and phytonutrients that prevent disease. Microwaved food is not merely “dead” food at every level, it is food that has been molecularly deconstructed, leaving nothing but empty calories, fibre and minerals. Virtually the entire vitamin and phytonutrient content has been destroyed. Anybody who says microwaving food is a healthy way to cook is wildly ignorant of nutrition and cooking methods. While steaming vegetables is, indeed, a good method for some veggies to help make certain nutrients more bioavailable, microwaving destroys veggies from the inside out at a cellular level.

Don’t be Fooled by Appearances What’s really deceptive about microwave cooking is that the food still appears to be basically the same, but at the cellular level, it’s like a nuclear war has taken place. The actual molecular structure has been decimated. If you could see microwaved foods with a powerful microscope, you’d never eat them again because you would recognize just what a nutritional wasteland they really are. If you want to eat in a healthy way, make sure a significant part of your diet is raw plants. It’s okay to eat some steamed, stir-

fried or even grilled veggies, but when grilling foods, avoid burning them because all burned parts contain toxic, cancer-causing chemicals that promote colon cancer. Personally, I am absolutely astonished that more people don’t already know all this. I’m even having to talk with my own staff about these issues, as they don’t seem to know the full story on microwave cooking. Spread the word: Microwaves promote death because they turn nutritious, healthy food into

empty, decimated calories. I gave up using a microwave well over a decade ago, and I don’t even own one. Remember, a person who cooks a lot of their food with microwaves will inevitably have chronic nutritional deficiencies that promote cancer, diabetes, bone diseases, loss of brain function, heart disease and many other health problems. The least healthy people of any society are typically the ones who frequently use the microwave oven to “nuke” their foods.


Genetics Have Little Influence over Health by Carolanne Wright

ruce Lipton believes ninetyeight percent of all illness is environmental, while a mere two percent of disease can be traced to genetic disposition. Working as a stem cell researcher at Stanford University, Lipton uncovered a startling truth: Our genetic composition has very little influence on health whereas the impact of chemistry within the body is farreaching. The key to unlocking exceptional wellness is actually found in the subconscious mind -- if we reprogram our negative thought habits, we create a new internal chemistry where spontaneous healing and vibrant health are possible. Cells Respond to Environment, Not Predetermined Genetic Code During an interview on GreenMed TV, Lipton explored the ramifications of his discovery that genetically identical stem cells

to radiant mental states along with harmonious bodily processes. Yet if the thought is negative, stressful or fear based, biochemicals flood the system with a message of disease and disharmony, essentially shutting down immunity and proper functioning. This creates a serious dilemma because most of our thoughts are unconscious and rooted in programming we adopted during early childhood.

will behave differently when placed in varying petri dish environments. Some would develop into bone cells, others muscle. It all depended on the specific chemical environment, not the genetic code. He began to question how this related to the human body and its 50 trillion cells. The Subconscious Mind as Master Lipton applied his findings to the environment of the body; namely, how human chemistry is influenced. He found that the subconscious mind (which controls 95 percent of our thoughts, actions, beliefs and emotions) is running the chemistry show. When we have a thought or perception, it sets off a chain of chemical reactions within the body. If the thought is positive, it will foster a favourable chemical environment -- leading

Deprogram and Thrive Up until age six, every person is like a sponge -- absorbing information, traits, behavioural responses as well as conditioning from family and society. According to Lipton, from birth until six, there is very little conscious thought. We are simply soaking up everything around us which in turn shapes the way we think. Unfortunately, most of us take in beliefs based on negative thinking,

a sense of lack and competition. As adults, these negative programs not only manifest as ill health, but also financial hardship, mental unease and other life challenges. The secret is to tune into our programmed habits. And this requires becoming mindful of the thoughts swimming around in our heads. Once we see the patterns of thinking and habitual reactions, we can begin to break the cycle and make choices of how we will respond, think and behave. But this is not some Pollyanna orientation where we gloss over what we are really feeling. Just the opposite. Instead, we become fully aware of our persistent thoughts and emotions. We then can choose a different path which is more life affirming and joyful. It takes commitment and dedication, yet once the process is set in motion and early programming loosens its grip, life opens up, creating “heaven on earth,” says Lipton. Vitality and health return, happiness soars. And problems fall by the wayside. What’s more, miracles start to appear when we have full control of our consciousness, Lipton declares. Spontaneous healing is just one example. Not bad for a little infusion of awareness into our daily lives.

HOLY BASIL REMOVES FLUORIDE

byCarolanne Wright NaturalNews.com

A

plant called Tulsi, or Holy Basil, which grows all over India might just be another answer to defluoridating water in poor countries all over the world. Research scientists at Rajasthan University have discovered that Tulsi can replace some of the more expensive alternatives to fluoride removal. The process is so simple, it’s downright exciting.

responsible for depleting brain capacity to causing ADD and ADHD, or even calcifying the pineal gland, (which inhibits important hormonal secretions like Melatonin and Seratonin, and DMT), it is wonderful news that such a simple remedy has been found.

A Few Dangers of Fluoride • •

Tulsi (Holy Basil) Found to Cleanse Water of Fluoride The researchers conducted the experiment in a village of Narketpally Mandal by soaking 75 mg of Holy Basil leaves in 100ml of water that had over 7 parts per million of fluoride. After soaking the leaves in the water for a mere 8 hours, the fluoride was reduced to just 1.1 parts per million. The World Health Organization says that ‘safe’ levels of fluoride in water are no higher than 1 part per million. With the recent admittance by Harvard University that fluoride was bad for health, and the continuing news that points to fluoride being

As mentioned, fluoride has been linked to numerous health consequences, and for good reason: it’s toxic. A Harvard study explains: “The children in high fluoride areas had  significantly lower IQ than those who lived in low fluoride areas.” The EPA had similar statements,  demonstrating how   fluoride displays ”evidence of developmental neurotoxicity” and can damage unborn babies. “Fluoride readily crosses the placenta. Fluoride exposure to the developing brain, which is much more susceptible to injury caused by toxicants than is the mature brain, may possibly lead to damage of a permanent nature.” One paper entitled Fluoride – A

Modern Toxic Waste says the following: Yiamouyiannis documents research showing that  fluoride increases the [cancer] tumour growth rate by 25% at only 1 ppm, produces melanotic tumours, transforms normal cells into cancer cells and increases the carcinogenesis of other chemicals.  For the original references to these studies, refer to Yiamouyiannis’ pamphlet, Lifesavers Guide to Fluoridation. It was shown in 1977 that water fluoridation sparked nearly 10,000 cancer deaths in epidemiological studies by Dr. Dean Burk, former head of the Cytochemistry Section at the National Cancer Institute and Yiamouyiannis.

For poor countries, the use of tulsi for cleansing water of fluoride is ideal, but also for the ‘civilized’ nations that put fluoride in the drinking water to begin with. Maybe we can skip the over-priced water filters and use nature instead. Now, if we can just figure out how to remove the chlorine, pesticides and other toxic residues, with a plant, we would be golden. Options aside from purchasing a reverse

osmosis system would be as beneficial as Tulsi leaves, since even houseplants tend to grow better on water without chlorine in them, and fish definitely don’t like the chemical. If Tulsi leaves do the trick on fluoride, there is bound to be another plant in nature’s cornucopia that can help with other toxins.

3 Key Benefits of Connecting With the Earth

Chronic inflammation is now understood to be a primary, causative factor in seven of the top ten leading causes of mortality in the United States. It is beyond the scope of this article to review the details of chronic inflammation, how and why it happens, but it is important to realize that chronic inflammation is not a good thing, and Earthing may be a simple way to reduce it, whatever the cause may be. As we know, an inflammatory response in your body begins with the production of free radicals (electrically charged particles) in an injured area, which help prevent infection and stimulate the healing process. However, when an inflammatory response becomes chronic, the excessive free radical activity begins to damage healthy tissue in the surrounding area. Depending on the tissue in question, this process could result in cancer, cardiovascular disease, arthritis or one of many other types of chronic disease. Earthing, which saturates the healthy tissue in your body with negative electrons, literally works to create a barrier through which these free radicals cannot pass, in turn protecting you from the outlying damage they would otherwise cause.

Sound familiar? That’s what I learned in school and that’s what I teach to my patients and clients on a daily basis. Some might argue other steps like exposure to sunshine and fresh air, stress reduction, quality social interaction, living a purposeful life and even hydrotherapy are equally necessary and fundamental, and I really wouldn’t argue against any of them. What I would, however, argue for is the inclusion of an additional step; one that, until recently, has been fairly unrecognized, certainly by the conventional medical system, but also by most alternative health practitioners. What is it?

Touch the Earth Wait a second, you say. Unless I’ve had this whole gravity thing wrong all along, I thought we were touching the earth. Well, we are, but not like we should be. It just so happens that humans are actually meant to touch the earth with our bare skin, and that doing so may be as fundamentally healthy for us as any other health promoting habits you’ve learned about along the way. The most common term used these days to describe this simple, yet powerful healing technique is Earthing. Another term is grounding. If you have yet to explore this technique, you are all missing out. In fact, these days, from what I have seen in my own practice, I would now rate it as on par with all other basics requirements for optimal health we know so well. Traditional healthcare systems like Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine have promoted the health benefits of skin-to-skin contact with the earth for hundreds, if not thousands of years. If that’s not reason enough to consider this therapy, there is also now a growing body of research not only proving what those wise physicians knew all along, but showing exactly what happens when we perform this simple act. What is known for certain is when you touch the earth with your skin or through material that does not insulate you from its energy field you immediately begin absorbing a significant amount of electrons from its surface into your body. The key questions are whether or not this matters to you and what exactly happens to you when you do it. My experiences, having recommended this treatment to patients now for years, have been nothing short of astounding in some cases. I like research and reproducible “proof” as much as the next doc, but for me, the responses I see in my own patients trump all. Nonetheless, for other obvious reasons, research and the proof it can provide are important. Here are some highlights from what we know so far:

3. Touching the earth helps keep your blood flowing For blood to flow efficiently through your veins, arteries and capillaries, the cells need to move freely amongst each other, and not get stuck together. To aid in this process the surface of your red blood cells all have a negative charge to them, known as a zeta potential, literally causing them to repel each other. The greater the negative charge is around your blood cells, the greater the zeta potential, and the better your blood cells will bounce off of each other and continue flowing along. The electrons you absorb from the earth’s surface are negatively charged as well, and contribute to a greater zeta potential. The end result then is that touching the earth helps to naturally encourage blood flow. This discovery has far-reaching implications for the field of cardiology, and some of the most cutting edge, brightest minds in it have begun to take notice. Dr. Stephen Sinatra of Heartmdinstitute. com is one of the more well-known and respected physicians in the field of integrative cardiology. He is also a huge proponent of earthing and encourages it to as a preventative health measure for all cardiology patients.

Conclusion

1. Touching the earth is calming, reduces many negative effects of stress and can help you sleep Have you ever arrived at your favourite park or beach, taken your shoes off and felt a seemingly instantaneous sense of calm overtake you? You’ve probably never even thought twice about it. Being at the beach or in a park is just nice, so of course you feel calmer right? Nope, it appears there may be something more to it than that. Recent research into the effects of grounding is showing that it leads to an increase in parasympathetic nervous system activity, and reduces sympathetic activity. The fact that most of us walk around in a state of nearly perpetual sympathetic overdrive, anything that encourages parasympathetic activity is beneficial. Beyond that, additional research into other parameters of stress has shown that grounding also directly normalizes both cortisol secretion, a hallmark of stress activity in the body, and melatonin secretion, which is of course crucial for a good night’s sleep and possibly much, much more.

2. Touching the earth is anti-inflammatory

by Dr. Daniel Chong GreenmedInfo.com

There are many more reasons why reconnecting with the earth is good for you, some of which I’m sure have yet to even be discovered. Perhaps the most obvious explanation though, is that it is simply natural. With our technologically advanced world changing at such an astoundingly fast pace, it is easy to forget where we have come from and what our bodies are adapted to. What it all boils down to is that chronically ill people have literally become that way specifically because of how unnatural their lives are and how far away from nature they have moved both literally and figuratively. Time and again we all see proof that the reintroduction of simple, natural necessities like whole food, movement, and sleep into their lives, helps our patients get better. Adding Earthing to your list of preventive health practices will undoubtedly serve to further enhance your vitality and add an entirely unique angle of support for your long term health. So tell your patients to start putting their bare feet on the ground and reconnecting, and recommend utilizing some of the additional equipment now available to help them do so when touching the earth is impossible or impractical. They will thank you for it.

Earthing Products offer a convenient way to stay in contact with the earth while working, relaxing, or sleeping indoors.

Earthing involves being in contact with the Earth's eternal and gentle surface energy. It means walking barefoot outside and/or sitting, working, relaxing, or sleeping indoors while connected to an earthing sheet or mat that delivers the natural nurturing energy of the Earth into your body. For more than ten years, thousands of people around the world -- men, women, children, and athletes -- have incorporated Earthing into their daily routines. The results have been documented and they are extraordinary.

HOW CAN EARTHING HELP?

Through observations and clinical studies, people have found that Earthing can help: Reduce Innammation . Reduce Chronic Pain . Improve Sleep . Lower Stress . Increase Energy . Improve Blood Pressure . Reduce Headaches . Accelerate Healing . Protect against EMF's

"This inspired and well-researched book explains the perils we face by being disconnected from the power and energy of the Earth and its boundless storehouse of free electrons. Could much of the disease, chronic innammation, poor sleep, and more be the result of this? A brilliant hypothesis well-grounded in science." - NICHOLAS PERRICONE, M.D., AUTHOR OF AGELESS FACE, AGELESS MIND

The Protocols of Dr. Sircus by Glennis Taylor BSc

W

hen we hear the word baking soda, a few mental associations may surface: perhaps a fond memory of warm soda bread with butter and jam or maybe we see a blue box in the fridge keeping those ‘fridgy’ odours at bay, or something found in some toothpastes there to keep our teeth clean and shiny. What if I told you that baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) may help to raise oxygen levels in your body or it can make your body more alkaline and less prone to serious disease, even cancer. These are actually some of the positive results that Dr. Mark Sircus outlines in his well researched and widely published material. His recently published “Treatment Essentials Book” outlines a health protocol that is easy, effective and very affordable for almost everybody to use. Dr. Sircus Ac. OMD DM(P), has had a colourful journey in the health arena. In his late twenties, he opened up to spiritualism and explored this area while also discovering the benefits of shiatsu. He pursued acupuncture and oriental and pastoral medicine becoming one of the first nationally certified acupuncturists in the USA (The Institute Of Traditional Medicine in Santa Fe N.M. And the School Of Traditional Medicine Of New England in Boston). The therapeutic side of his education in health inspired him to further delve into the root causes of diseases and the human condition. He has done extensive research in natural medicine and authored many well referenced and revolutionary books that have opened eyes around the world. He is the founding Director of IMVA (International Medical Veritas Association) in Brazil where he has resided since 1991. The IMVA is a dedicated

voice for radical changes in medicine. Passionate in his desire to disclose the many untruths he sees being perpetuated by governments and the orthodox medical community, he works unceasingly to lay down a foundation of medicine that is free from the tainted pharmaceutical rein. He proposes a new therapeutic paradigm that marries the best of both allopathic and naturopathic medicine which he terms Natural Allopathic Medicine. The basics of his protocol are relatively simple. One of the foundation remedies he has researched I referred to earlier: sodium bicarbonate also known as baking soda. This common, cheap and seemingly unsophisticated substance may be in fact a lifesaver. When taken orally as part of a program, it works quickly in changing the pH of the body. There has been lots of recent information in the media about maintaining a healthy acid alkaline balance. Chronic diseases exist in a generally more acidic body terrain. The acidic environment in our bodies that our modern diet choices and stressful lifestyles promote is ripe for inviting illness to become established. Not only does sodium bicarbonate neutralize acid, when mixed with acid it forms water and carbon dioxide. When ingested, the baking soda forms CO2 in the intestinal tract which then enters the bloodstream. We know that we breathe in oxygen and breathe out CO2. Actually CO2 is usually seen as a waste product. What Dr. Sircus proposes is that oxygen and CO2 work in tandem in the body and when one gas is low the other is also. In order to increase O2 levels and provide the body with life giving oxygen, he says we must also increase our CO2 which can be accomplished simply by taking sodium bicarbonate. The increase of bicarbonates and

I do take sodium bicarbonate orally with iodine as well, as you suggested. This is the most successful regimen I have ever been on. I am confident for the first time in many years that I will live… and my doctors told me in 2008 to get my affairs in order. I would love to meet you some day and thank you in person. I believe in your work and they way you help so many thousands of people. - Dr. Wendy Pauluk

CO2 in the body may be a way of keeping the body rejuvenated and be a viable anti aging method. In his extensive body of written work, there is much information dedicated to the important role of baking soda and carbon dioxide in the treatment of cancer. It is a fascinating and innovative approach to treating the ever growing rates and challenging dynamics of cancer. Another key player in the protocol is magnesium. The form of magnesium that Dr. Sircus recommends is a transdermal form called magnesium chloride. Easily absorbed when applied to the skin, it bypasses the digestive tract avoiding the bane of high doses of oral magnesium: diarrhea. Magnesium is one of the keys to life; in fact there would be no life without magnesium. We use magnesium for over 300 enzyme processes in the body. Deficiency states of magnesium today are rampant in society. Our soils and therefore our foods have become nutrient depleted. Sugar metabolism and how insulin works in the body are directly related to magnesium. Heart health and rhythm, blood pressure, muscle tension and cellular energy are but a few of the many functions dependant on adequate magnesium levels. A relaxing magnesium oil massage is a great way to increase magnesium levels. It has been noted that areas of the world that have sufficient magnesium in the diet have significantly lower levels of cancer. Dr. Sircus is now working with magnesium bicarbonate and is impressed with the results. We will, I am sure, hear more about this lesser known form of magnesium. Iodine is the third member of the protocol. We usually associate iodine with thyroid function. There are many more functions and

My mother recovered two years ago from cancer using bicarbonate and maple syrup. She had a tumor 4 inches across and 10 inches long, which punctured her lungs twice (how it was discovered). She had grade 3b non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Took her three months but she did it. Many thanks for writing your Sodium Bicarbonate book and being instrumental in helping saving my mum’s life. - Vince Barnes

roles that require adequate levels of iodine. There seems to be a link to rising levels of breast cancer. We now know iodine is not only stored in the thyroid, but also in the breast tissues, ovaries and prostate. Some women benefit from upping iodine intake to relieve fibrocystic breasts. There are theories arising from recent studies suggesting that over 90% of our population has a deficiency in iodine. Iodine and chlorine compete for receptor sites in the body and we have so much chlorine in our lives these days that may displace valuable iodine in our systems. In the past iodine was used as an effective natural antibiotic. It is capable of killing and incapacitating bacteria, mould, viruses, yeasts and fungus within minutes of contact. Perhaps we should think first of iodine before subjecting our children to frequently prescribed antibiotics. Iodine has also been in the press more recently as a way to deal with the recent spikes in radiation. Iodine, magnesium and sodium bicarbonate may be the three musketeers for better health according to Dr. Sircus. These are easy and inexpensive to incorporate into our health regime Other things Dr. Sircus proposes as health enhancing are quality alkaline drinking water, vitamin C, selenium, breathing retraining to reduce the number of breaths per minute, and to live from an open heart. I could write so much more after to talking to Dr. Mark Sircus! I’ve barely touched on some of his important findings that will help so many of us live happier, healthier lives. His dedication and desire to reach out and shine a light on what is happening in the world of medicine and his understanding of simple ways to help mankind make his story a compelling one to follow. I am sure you will hear much more from Dr. Sircus in the very near future. Stay tuned!

UBC Do ctors Expose VA N CO U V E R Vaccination Cover-up F o l k M u s i c by Arjun

D

r Chris Shaw, from the University of British  Colombia’s (UBC)   Department of Ophthalmology, Visual Sciences, Experimental Medicine and Neuroscience published a paper in the Journal Inorganic Biochemistry along with his colleague, Dr.  Lucija Tomljenovic, that revealed Government experts have known about the dangers associated with vaccinations. They investigated information exposing a 30 year scandal of official meetings by UK government vaccine committees and independent medical ‘experts’ with drug industry connections. The paper is at the bottom of the article under “sources” (online. ed) A Freedom of Information Act request filed with the CDC  seeking information on what the CDC knows about the dangers of vaccines, had to be responded to in 20 days. Nearly 7 years later a judge ordered the CDC to turn over the documents on September 30th, 2011. These documents were part of the study discussed in this article. The paper has received a lot of attention. UBC even held a symposium about vaccination safety as a result in an effort to arouse more critical thinking and discussion around the topic. The response was disturbing  with a number of UBC professors upset that the discussion was taking place in the first place. It’s disturbing to know that there are those out there who wish to silence an opposition to vaccination, and not even keep an open mind to potential dangers. Much of the medical literature examined by researchers comes straight from pharmaceutical company-sponsored medical research. It’s time for us to wake up and make some obvious connections. Here is a quote from the published, peer reviewed paper: “Deliberately concealing information from parents for the sole purpose of getting them to comply with an “official” vaccination schedule could be considered as a form of ethical violation or misconduct. Official documents obtained from the UK Department of Health (DH) and the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization (JCVI) reveal that the British health authorities have been engaging in such practice for the last 30 years, apparently for the sole purpose of protecting the national vaccination program.” The documents reveal that vaccinations don’t work, and that they cause the disease they are supposed to prevent. They also indicate scientific fraud, that government ‘experts’ are working to conceal information. The 45 page paper was published in 2011 and presented at the BSEM scientific conference. Another excerpt from the paper: “Here I present the documentation which

Collective-Evolution.com appears to show that the JCVI made continuous efforts to withhold critical data on severe adverse reactions and contraindications to vaccinations to both parents and health practitioners in order to reach overall vaccination rates which they deemed were necessary for “herd immunity”, a concept which with regards to vaccination, and contrary to prevalent beliefs, does not rest on solid scientific evidence as will be explained. As a result of such vaccination policy promoted by the JCVI and the DH, many children have been vaccinated without their parents being disclosed of the critical information about demonstrated risks of serious adverse reactions, one that the JCVI appeared to have been fully aware of. It would also appear that, by withholding this information, the JCVI/DH neglected the right of individuals to make an informed consent concerning vaccination. By doing so, the JCVI/ DH may have violated not only International Guidelines for Medical Ethics.” – Dr Lucija Tomljenovic She also mentions evidence of ties between vaccine manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies: “The transcripts of the JCVI meetings also show that some of the Committee members had extensive ties to pharmaceutical companies and that the JCVI frequently co-operated with vaccine manufacturers on strategies aimed at boosting vaccine uptake. Some of the meetings at which such controversial items were discussed were not intended to be publicly available, as the transcripts were only released later, through the Freedom of Information Act (FOI). These particular meetings are denoted in the transcripts as “commercial in confidence”, and reveal a clear and disturbing lack of transparency, as some of the information was removed from the text (i.e., the names of the participants) prior to transcript release under the FOI section at the JCVI website.” The documents go on to show that when strong evidence was presented against vaccination, they were completely ignored and overlooked by the Joint  Committee on Vaccinations and Immunizations. Furthermore, the committee has constantly dismissed independent research and downplayed vaccine concerns while overinflating the benefits. They’ve also promoted and elaborated a plan for introducing new vaccines of questionable efficacy and safety into the routine pediatric schedule, on the assumption that the licenses would eventually be granted. All of these violate the JCVI’s own code of conduct. Alternative media outlets continue to raise awareness about vaccinations and their potential dangers. With the world handing over credibility to a certain criteria, we thank all of the researchers out there who continue to examine all information, and a wide variety of sources. With the work of these researchers and doctors, the truth about vaccinations continues to spread across the planet. For more articles about vaccinations, you can browse through our health, science/tech, and alternative news sections. Thank you for reading and spread the word!

I

remember those carefree summer days of childhood along the shores of Birch Lake in Northern Wisconsin. Catching frogs for bait to fish for Walleye & Northern Pike; life seemed pretty straight forward and uncomplicated back then, the way it’s supposed to be for children.  Except for the inevitability of school, and household chores my time was pretty much my own.   Yet even as I busied myself with those things important to a youngster I had in the back of my mind just a smattering of an idea of how growing up would change things.  You would have to be blind & deaf to not know that the responsibilities of adulthood were a constant source of stress in that house.  So it was that I approached the years of adulthood with reservations and no small degree of reluctance. The nearer I got to that age when I’d be expected to “put away childish things” the more misgivings I developed as I came into a clearer picture of what it was about adulthood that took such a heavy toll on my parents.  Between school and church it seemed we had a clear enough blueprint given to us for how humans should conduct themselves on this beautiful blue-green gem of a planet....trouble was, nobody was playing by those rules.  As near as I could figure out at the time, following that blueprint just set us up as fast food for those who played by their own set of rules.  I tried not to give it too much thought back then because well, hunting for dinosaur bones was just way more important; and besides, I was certain that the grownups would have everything fixed before I turned twenty.   As the years piled up on me I couldn’t help but notice that the closer I got to adulthood, the worse shape the world seemed to be in.  There were a few moments of  hopeful anticipation when someone showed real signs of bringing about some much needed change in this society and the world; but the ensuing, inevitable assassinations also killed such hopeful notions.  The military-industrial-complex that Ike tried to warn us about was just getting warmed up about the time I received my draft notice.  It came as a death knell for the dreams of a generation of young people just like me.  Motivated by Dad’s war stories and the news coverage in Vietnam I took my narrow ass down to the Navy recruiter and signed up.  If I was going to have to go to war, I figured there was no earthly reason I shouldn’t have a dry bed & warm food.  About the only thing I found that was “as advertised” was the old saying, join the Navy & see the world.  Now I didn’t get to see the entire world, but the parts I did see bestowed upon me a far greater education than any school can provide.  I got to see how other people in other lands live, I got to see their culture, architecture and society.  What I saw the most of was their poverty and oppression...I got to see outside the bubble of “the American dream” for the first time. I also saw no earthly reason why I couldn’t make the most of it and have some fun along the way.  On a three day stop-over for liberty in Hong Kong I coerced two buddies to accompany me (in civilian clothes) to the Kowloon side (which is communist mainland China) for some sightseeing and culture.  Everything went fine the whole day, right up until we hit the Peoples Republic museum.  On the far wall was a beautiful, huge painting of chairman Mao surrounded by many other notables.  I was taken by how very life-like the painting was, so I snapped a couple photos.  How was I to know that not only is photographing people frowned upon in some oriental cultures, but taking pictures was actually against the law in that museum??  Very soon we saw two uniformed museum dudes coming our way and a small windowless room in our future, so we ran.  The guards chased us out into the street where we were fortunate enough to find one of the literally thousands of ‘taxis’ which

Page 16

swept us up, and out of the area before the police could respond. Of the several lessons I got from that experience perhaps the most important one was learning  that you cannot always expect other people’s beliefs to be reasonable, or logical...but you must respect them just the same if you wish the same consideration in return.  No matter where the Navy took me, I saw that everywhere there is one thing that exists the same way in every country and continent, and that is this ability humanity has to just ignore the injustices heaped upon them, as they continue to work for the very system which oppresses them.  The proverbial elephant in the room, with Leonard Cohen on the radio singing “Everybody Knows” to intentionally deaf ears!    There exists a persistent and pernicious evil on this planet which seeks to dominate and control humanity; to prevent us from thinking, thriving and evolving.  It is cold, calculating, & heartless and seeks to remake us it it’s own image...and we’re letting it!  Why is that, Really?  I conjure the biggest part of the answer is conditioning...they’ve been at it for centuries now, so the roots are very deep indeed.  The proverbial elephant in the room, conditioned its entire life to believe it cannot run free because of the heavy chain on its hind leg.  Except the Mahout (trainer/ keeper) long ago replaced the chain with a small rope the elephant could easily snap... but he doesn’t because he believes he cannot!  Another part of Why might just be that as a group, humans often seem to prefer taking the path of least resistance. Especially so here; under the ever-decaying bubble of the American dream.  We Yankees are so addicted to our cars & creature comforts we dare not rock the boat too much for fear of loosing them.  Well played, pernicious evil, well played indeed!  Get the talking monkeys addicted to toys and stimulants so if they ever revolt, they lose it all.                                                                        Now Joe Six-pack & Marvin Middle class know all this.  Somewhere in the back of their mind they figured it all out, did the math and arrived at the inescapable conclusion that the fix is in, the game is rigged, no brass ring for you.  To their credit they do not share this epiphany with the wife and kids, no need to scare them; they just keep it tucked away in a dusty box in the basement of their subconscious and keep putting in those overtime hours to get ahead until they have their heart attack & die.  The thing is, all that is NOT inescapable!  Joe & Marvin don’t have to settle for austere lives of debt and desperation; there is another way...and the boys know that as well, but to go down that path is to turn away from the hive mind and what is socially acceptable, and it requires an uncommon faith in yourself and the universe.  In today’s fractured world to openly say you believe something dramatically different than the masses is to invite disdain, alienation and possibly even a violent death.  Like I said, you just can’t always expect other people’s beliefs to be reasonable.  Throughout my life every time I encounter this head-in-sand ostrich mentality we humans have about confronting evil, I remember back to that house I grew up in and the ceramic on the fireplace mantle of the 3 monkeys, hear-no-evil, see-no-evil, & speak-no-evil...and I wonder if it was one of Dad’s little inside jokes, I wonder if he knew.  This ostrich mentality is by no means limited to politics, but is pervasive across the board, regardless of subject, be it scientific, philosophical, or religious.  It was always a disconnect for me that I was expected to quit believing in Santa Claus at a certain

age while the grown-ups got to keep their invisible friends well into adulthood. I also had some basic issues with the blind faith demanded by most all organized religions.   I’ve always been more of an empirical kind of guy when it comes to what I choose to believe.  I also had some degree of cognitive dissonance when it came to the idea of an all powerful perfectly infallible man in the sky who created everything including a divine master plan for all of us.  I guess I’ve just never been willing to passively let someone else do my thinking for me, they say I’m ‘funny’ that way, crossed wires or something. There exists another reason why we humans abdicate our choice and power to those who would enslave us, and its about being willing to go to any extremes to keep from acknowledging our own power, and dominion.  I think we are afraid of the unknown but terrified of the unknown within ourselves.  We can sense the power laying there dormant and because we’ve never explored it, we fear it, even though it is US!  It’s like riding your bicycle everywhere because you forgot that inside the garage is a shiny new Porsche sitting there waiting for you.  We allow the most unqualified among us to not only steer the world closer to disaster with each passing day, but to also somehow convince us they are the only ones qualified to lead!!  We allow this vicious cycle of war, poverty & power mongering to continue decade after decade.  It’s the same damned dog & pony show every time...and just like Charlie Brown with Lucy & the football, we fall for this shit every time.  There must be a reason for all this somewhere; if we are just brave enough to look with the right kind of eyes.  I only mention this because as it happens, there is a widespread epidemic of awakening currently rampant across this planet and I believe it may well be our last chance to break free from the conditioning and have ourselves a revolution of consciousness that will turn things around, and get us back on course for our first best destiny.  We can, you know!  The very first step is remembering that the people gave the government the right to exist, not the other way around!  Only when this has been thoroughly established can there be any real progress forward; anything less is just the same old merry-go-round dog & pony show. The psychic numbing from generations of conditioning is starting to wear thin, it’s giving out, and the faster this awakening moves, the sooner we are free to pick up the pieces and start over...yeah, some stuff is gonna get broken, it might even get real ugly because we have pernicious evil backed into something of a corner, and you recall what they say about a cornered beast! A person’s belief system is sort of like when you stand a few hundred dominoes on end to form a pattern.  If one of those dominolike beliefs falls over because it’s proven invalid or just wrong, (lack of support) it tends to also bring down the next few beliefs in line.  If the belief that falls happens to be the keystone belief for the entire system, the first domino...the whole thing comes cascading down around your ears.  This is why so many steadfastly refuse to accept new concepts which threaten their belief system; not only is accepting the new paradigm going to send you off away from the hive mind, it’s also a lot of work.  Humans have repeatedly proven their reluctance toward change, especially when new ideas and new knowledge is involved.  Most only really change when the discomfort of remaining the same becomes too great, and it’s been said that in our western culture, if a

person hasn’t changed old, self-limiting beliefs & programming by the time they are 45, they probably never will. That would be like having to live with Bill O’Reilly in your head for the rest of your life!  Among those who are now awake, (and we are legion by the way) there are a number of differing thoughts & theories about how humanity is going to free itself from pernicious evil, now that the world didn’t end last December 21st.  Some are betting on the Rapture to save them from the fall of man, while others are digging in underground to wait it out.  There are those who believe that the Anunnaki will return to save us from ourselves...but, let’s not forget, the Anunnaki are said to have genetically bred our race specifically to be slaves.  Not sure I’d greet them with open arms. Some believe that by purifying our energy systems and raising our vibratory resonance, we will ascend to a higher dimensional plane; while another group believes we cannot and shall not escape total annihilation of the entire planet.  Unless you are still soundly asleep you might have noticed that these last months have had more than a few  ripples of high strangeness for those looking for signs from on high.  The Pope quit his job, and lightning hits his house.  Huge pods of dolphins numbering in the hundreds, if not thousands are sighted for the second time off san Diego Bay.  NASA tells us of a space rock about to harmlessly pass by between Earth & her artificial ring of man-made satellites, but fails to mention the ones which fell to Earth in Russia, Cuba, Florida, California and Saudi Arabia! Then there’s news of a massive ‘filament’ on the sun which could maybe violently erupt, sending a planet singing coronal mass ejection hurdling our way. Actually there are so many weird, unusual events taking place, someone has created an impressive new web site called Climate Viewer, just to track them all; ClimateViewer.com In a universe where anything is possible, any or all of these things might happen, or any one of a hundred other theories out there in La-La land as well; all are equally valid in the quantum universe.  As for myself, my money is on the Black Swan...which is a totally unforeseen event we are powerless to stop which when it happens will fundamentally change everything.  The black swan event comes from nowhere and is perhaps a response from the universe itself, an attempt to hit the cosmic reset button in our collective pineal gland.  You see, the black swan is limitless, doesn’t have to take the form of death and destruction but rather can manifest itself any way it pleases.  It might be Earth shattering news that stuns the world into the proper mindset for evolution almost overnight; or it might be so subtle and refined a thing that only children and pets can perceive it at first.  The very best thing about the black swan is that it eats pernicious evil like so many frogs on the shoreline of Birch Lake.  It renders evil irrelevant with one flap of its huge midnight wings.   It removes the butchers thumb from the edge of the meat scale.  It is a re-shuffling of the deck to remove those stubbornly clinging to a vacuous, dying empire so that the shiny new can have a turn at bat in this evolutionary procession.   Of all the recent “signs” that something big may be coming our way very soon; the one which most typifies both the situation, and the dire need to change it was all the Hullabaloo over Obama playing a round of golf with Tiger Woods.  It was such a spectacle that to thwart “the terrorists” a no-fly zone was declared... which grounded a med-evac flight...resulting in two people dying...“film at eleven” Until next time...Be good to each other.

How convenient an oversight by these demonizers of the sun that people closest to the equator have the lowest incidence of skin cancer, but you’ll never hear that message on your local news. Instead, as the summer approaches the media bombards us daily with myths that blocking the sun’s rays from reaching our skin will somehow protect us from the one thing it actually prevents–cancer. Blocking the sun’s rays from reaching our skin dramatically influences our optimal vitamin D levels, leading to higher mortality, critical illness and mental health disorders. Ironically, sunscreen itself causes cancer. A Tale of Corruption and Deception  The sunscreen industry makes money by selling lotion products that actually contain cancercausing chemicals. It then donates a portion of that money to the cancer industry through nonprofit groups like Cancer Societies which, in turn, run heart-breaking public service ads and charity events such as Relay For Life urging people to donate and use sunscreen to “prevent cancer.” The cancer establishment has retreated from the truth. What began as sincere investigation into the economic root causes of a complex set of 200 different diseases, at the turn of the 20th century, quickly degenerated into a single-minded focus. All cancer societies are now dedicated to funding drug companies to “find the cure” that will never exist, at least not from any mainstream institution. Devra Davis, one of North America’s sharpest epidemiologists “Astonishing alliances between naive or far too clever academics and folks with major economic interests in selling potentially cancerous materials have kept us from figuring out whether or not many modern products affect our chances of developing cancer.” She has documented how some of the world’s most prominent cancer researchers secretly worked for chemical firms without disclosing these ties when publishing studies. Davis’ work will rob you of any lingering, Disney-like fantasies you might have entertained about the nobility of cancer fundraising campaigns actually doing some good the cancer patients. Please DON’T support American or Canadian Cancer Societies or Relays For Life. Many grants funding cancer research are supported by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the Melanoma Research Foundation. The NCI is the same federally funded (and privately funded by Big Pharma) organization that promotes mammography via ionizing radiation. In fact they are one of the biggest mammography promoters in the nation. They are directly managed by the biotech sector and typically employ pharmaceutical executives on their boards. The Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) is filled with scientific advisory members with conflicts interests statements littering their academic work. The decision makers at MRF are all current or former pharmaceutical executives or board members. Why Sunscreen Will Never Prevent Cancer And May Cause It The Sun does not cause cancer. Researchers have concluded that UVA exposure has not contributed to the rise in the incidence of melanoma over the past 30 years. UVA makes up 90 percent of the ultraviolet light spectrum of sunlight. “Our data refute the only direct evidence that UVA causes melanoma, which is not to say that UVA is harmless,” said the study’s lead author David Mitchell, Ph.D., professor in M. D. Anderson’s Department of Carcinogenesis located at its Science Park — Research Division in Smithville, Texas. “UVA is just not as dangerous as we thought because it doesn’t cause melanoma.” Both UVA and UVB can cause tanning and burning, although UVB does so far more rapidly.

Page 18

UVA, however, penetrates your skin more deeply than UVB. UVB appears to be protective against melanoma — or rather, the vitamin D your body produces in response to UVB radiation is protective. As written in The Lancet: “Paradoxically, outdoor workers have a decreased risk of melanoma compared with indoor workers, suggesting that chronic sunlight exposure can have a protective effect.” So if UVA and UVB do not cause melanoma, why use sunscreen? Skin cancer rates are increasing and the socalled experts are STILL blaming the sun for a problem manufactured right here on earth. If the sun was REALLY causing skin cancer, and if sunscreen prevented it, we’d be cancerfree by now. We’re already spending less time outside than ever, and wasting billions of dollars a year on needless, dangerous creams and lotions. Meanwhile, just a couple of generations ago, we spent far more time out in the sun and ZILCH on sunscreen — and skin cancer was practically unheard of. After decades of debate, several governments have failed to set mandatory sunscreen safety standards. Companies are free to make their own decisions on everything from advertising claims to product quality. The underlying message is that sunscreen applications are presently carrying risks that far outweigh any benefit to the public.

automatically thwarts skin cancer. They play on this consumer bandwagon of fear and hope on an issue shouldn’t even be an issue…blocking the sun! A review of the technical literature shows that some sunscreen ingredients absorb into the blood, and some are linked to toxic effects. Some release skin-damaging free radicals in sunlight, some act like estrogen and could disrupt hormone systems, several are strongly linked to allergic reactions, and still others may build up in the body or the environment. Almost two dozen law suits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson Inc., ScheringPlough Corp., Playtex Products Inc., Tanning Research Laboratories Inc. and Chattem Inc involving some of the most popular brands, including Coppertone, Banana Boat, Hawaiian Tropic, Bullfrog and Neutrogena — charge that manufacturers inflate claims about sunscreens, lulling consumers into believing their products are safe when they have shown to CAUSE cancer. Almost half of the 500 most popular sunscreen products may actually increase the speed at which malignant cells develop and spread skin cancer because they contain vitamin A or its derivatives retinol and retinyl palmitate which accelerate tumour growth. In a year-long study, tumours and lesions developed up to 21 percent faster in lab animals coated in a vitamin A-laced cream than animals treated with a vitamin-free cream, a report by EWG

The Sun Screen Deception WakingTimes.com

Comprehensive scientific reviews indicate that 83% of 785 sunscreen products contain ingredients with significant safety concerns. Only 17% of the products on the market block both UVA and UVB radiation which is the intended purpose by manufacturers of sunscreen, so what’s the point? The assessment by the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database was based on a review of nearly 400 scientific studies, industry models of sunscreen efficacy, and toxicity and regulatory information housed in nearly 60 government, academic, and industry databases. At least 50% of products on the market bear claims that are considered “unacceptable” or misleading under sunscreen safety standards. An analysis of marketing claims on hundreds of sunscreen bottles shows that false and misleading marketing claims are common. They give consumers a false sense of security (based on myths) with claims like “all day protection,” “mild as water,” and “blocks all harmful rays” which are completely untrue, yet are found on bottles. Consumers might assume that, because researchers have implicated ultraviolet light in skin cancer development, sunscreen

stated based on their analysis of initial findings released by the FDA and the National Toxicology Program. Based on the strength of the findings by FDA’s own scientists, many in the public health community say they can’t believe nor understand why the agency hasn’t already notified the public of the possible danger. Scientists have reported that particle size affects the toxicity of zinc oxide, a material widely used in sunscreens. Particles smaller than 100 nanometers are slightly more toxic to colon cells than conventional zinc oxide. Solid zinc oxide was more toxic than equivalent amounts of soluble zinc, and direct particle to cell contact was required to cause cell death. Their study is in ACS’  Chemical Research in Toxicology, a monthly journal. The Environmental Working Group who previously analyzed 15 studies on nanoparticles on sunscreen said that no investigations have ever assessed absorption through damaged skin. Such data is missing “for nearly all of the 17 sunscreen chemicals approved for use in the U.S.” The scientists note that a concern is children accidentally ingesting nano-sized zinc

oxide. Another common and toxic ingredient in sunscreens is titanium dioxide. New research published in ACS’ journal, Environmental Science & Technology  found that  Children may be receiving the highest exposure to nanoparticles of titanium dioxide. The geometry of titanium dioxide (TiO2) based nanofilaments appears to play a crucial role in cytotoxicity having a strong dose-dependent effect on cell proliferation and cell death. A comprehensive study conducted by researchers at UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer found that titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles, found in everything from cosmetics to sunscreen to paint to vitamins, caused systemic genetic damage in mice. The TiO2 nanoparticles induced single- and double-strand DNA breaks and also caused chromosomal damage as well as inflammation, all of which increase the risk for cancer. Vitamin D From The Sun is The Key In Preventing Disease  The scientific evidence, however, shows quite clearly that sunscreen actually promotes cancer by blocking the body’s absorption of ultraviolet radiation, which produces vitamin D in the skin. Vitamin D, as recent studies have shown, prevents up to 77 of ALL cancers in women (breast cancer, colon cancer, cervical cancer, lung cancer, brain tumors, multiple myeloma, etc). Meanwhile, the toxic chemical ingredients used in most sunscreen products are actually carcinogenic and have never been safety tested. They get absorbed right through the skin (a porous organ that absorbs most substances it comes into contact with) and enter the bloodstream. For the past several years, there has been considerable interest in the role vitamin D plays in improving health and preventing disease. Previous finding show that low levels of vitamin D have been directly associated with various forms of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Stephen B. Kritchevsky, PhD, Professor of Internal Medicine and Transitional Science at the Wake Forest School of Medicine found a significant correlation. “We observed vitamin D insufficiency (defined as blood levels <20 ng/ml), in one third of our study participants. This was associated with nearly a 50 percent increase in the mortality rate in older adults,” said Kritchevsky. “Our findings suggest that low levels of vitamin D may be a substantial public health concern for our nation’s older adults.” Cedric F. Garland, Dr.P.H., cancer prevention specialist at the Moores Cancer Center at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and colleagues estimate that 250,000 cases of colorectal cancer and 350,000 cases of breast cancer could be prevented worldwide by increasing intake of vitamin D3, particularly in countries north of the equator. “For the first time, we are saying that 600,000 cases of breast and colorectal cancer could be prevented each year worldwide, including nearly 150,000 in the United States alone,” said Garland. Although vitamin D can be obtained from limited dietary sources and directly from exposure to the sun during the spring and summer months, the combination of poor dietary intake and sun avoidance has created vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency in large proportions of many populations worldwide. It is known that vitamin D has a wide range of physiological effects and that correlations exist between insufficient amounts of vitamin D and an increased incidence of a number of cancers. These correlations are particularly strong for cancers of the digestive tract, including colon cancer, and certain forms of leukemia. Spending an average of three hours a day exposed to sunlight can slash the risk of breast cancer by up to 50 percent. People with higher blood levels of vitamin D live significantly longer than people who have low blood levels of the vitamin. A new study from University College London

Random Acts of Revolution by Daisy Luther

T

he 13th Amendment to the US Constitution abolished slavery. This means that if you are a slave today, it’s either illegal, or you have voluntarily accepted your servitude. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. You have a Constitutionally protected right to be free. If you aren’t free, then revolution is your duty. Many people believe that revolution requires that they lead a march, stand in front of a crowd with a bullhorn, or form a militia. They feel like it’s a job for the Alex Joneses, the Adam Kokeshes, the James Wesley Rawleses, and the Bradley Mannings of the world. They’re wrong. You don’t have to be a person with thousands of followers on Twitter and Facebook . You don’t have to be a person with a military leadership position on your resume. You need not get yourself arrested on the steps of the White House, got to prison forever for telling the truth about your unit in the army, or stare down a bunch of scary-looking thugs in jackboots. But you do have to do something. You can’t just sit there and complain unless you are really just another armchair Rambo. The way you lead your life every single day can be an act of revolution. By refusing

TheOrganicPrepper.ca to concede your natural rights, quietly and resolutely, you are performing an act of revolution. Walking the walk doesn’t always require civil disobedience or militia membership (although those actions definitely have their places). It requires your consistent determination not to be infringed upon. It doesn’t matter if you are a soccer mom from the suburbs, a college student in a dormitory, a church-going dad and husband, or a person who has found themselves homeless through the ongoing economic crisis – by living resolutely, you are performing an act of revolution. Don’t get me wrong – we need the Alexes, the Adams, the militias, the Bradleys, and the JWRs. We need the people who stand in protest. We need those who expose wrongdoing. We need the organizers, the shouters, the big personalities, the quiet strong types, and the leaders. But these are not the only ways to revolt. If every single person was off organizing their own rally, there’d be no one left to march in it. What it is imperative upon us to do is to find our compass and follow it. We must make ourselves immune to control by not needing what “they” hand out. We have to be armored against the way everyone else lives and choose our own paths. We must stubbornly refuse to participate in the hoop-jumping that is everyday life in North America. By all

of us who believe in liberty doing this, we form an army of stubborn non-participants in the status quo. Here’s an example. It’s a small thing, a battle that today only affected my daughter and me. My daughter is not vaccinated. She attends a public school where the kids must be vaccinated, or hoops must be jumped through. I filled out the initial forms stating that I had an objection of conscience to vaccines. I was contacted by a representative of the school system who suggested that I sign instead the form that stated a religious objection, because that was “easier”. I refused, because my objection is NOT one of religion, and I felt like that was a cop-out. I knew that I was within my rights to have an objection of conscience, and I felt that it was important to make a point that might make it easier for the next parent. I was then told that I’d have to pay $25 and get a statement notarized to allow her exemption on my basis. I said I’d be happy to get a statement notarized, but not at my expense. I pointed out that nowhere does our local law state that I should have to pay any money for my child to NOT do something. Lo and behold, after 5 months of politely going back and forth, being escalated through

numerous different superiors of superiors in the school board and public health system, my daughter is still unvaccinated, I have not spent $25, and she was not suspended from school. The point I’m making is not about vaccines, but about not stepping back from your rights, for your convenience or for the convenience of others. This requires that you read the relevant laws and understand them. It requires a certain degree of persistence and a willingness to be a pain in the butt.

There Are Valid Reasons for Revolution One of the benchmarks of tyranny is the dizzying arrays of laws on the books, with more

Meditation Makes You More Compassionate

by Josh Richardson

T

he qualities the world desperately needs more of, namely love, kindness and compassion, are indeed teachable. Scientists have mostly focused on the benefits of meditation for the brain and the body, but a recent study by Northeastern University’s David DeSteno, published in Psychological Science, takes a look at what impacts meditation has on interpersonal harmony and compassion. “Potentially one can train oneself to behave in a way which is more benevolent and altruistic,” said Antoine Lutz, an associate scientist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Recent brain-imaging studies have suggested that the insula and the anterior cingulate cortices regions are involved in the empathic response to other people’s pain. But not much is known about how cultivating compassion might affect brain circuitry. Several religious traditions have suggested that mediation does just that, but there has been no scientific proof--until now. In this study, a team of researchers from Northeastern University and Harvard University examined the effects meditation would have on compassion and virtuous behaviour, and the results were fascinating.

Page 20

PreventDisease.com THE STUDY This study--funded by the Mind and Life Institute--invited participants to complete eight-week trainings in two types of meditation. After the sessions, they were put to the test. Sitting in a staged waiting room with three chairs were two actors. With one empty chair left, the participant sat down and waited to be called. Another actor using crutches and appearing to be in great physical pain, would then enter the room. As she did, the actors in the chair would ignore her by fiddling with their phones or opening a book. The question DeSteno and Paul Condon -- a graduate student in DeSteno’s lab who led the study -- and their team wanted to answer was whether the subjects who took part in the meditation classes would be more likely to come to the aid of the person in pain, even in the face of everyone else ignoring her. “We know meditation improves a person’s own physical and psychological well-being,” said Condon. “We wanted to know whether it actually increases compassionate behaviour.”

MEDITATION WORKS Among the non-meditating participants, only about 15 percent of people acted to help. But among the participants who were in the meditation sessions “we were able to boost that up to 50 percent,” said DeSteno. This result was true for both meditation groups thereby showing the effect to be consistent across different forms of meditation. “The truly surprising aspect of this finding is that meditation made people willing to act virtuous -- to help another who was suffering -- even in the face of a norm not to do so,” DeSteno said, “The fact that the other actors were ignoring the pain creates as ‘bystandereffect’ that normally tends to reduce helping. People often wonder ‘Why should I help someone if no one else is?’” These results appear to prove what the Buddhist theologians have long believed-that meditation is supposed to lead you to experience more compassion and love for all sentient beings. But even for nonBuddhists, the findings offer scientific proof for meditation techniques to alter the calculus of the moral mind. Brain scans of those undergoing meditation have shown that the practice can improve emotional stability and response to stress. In those who meditated, significant increases across a wide area of the brain responsible for numerous functions beyond rapid information processing and retrieval have been found. Additional areas of the brain markedly affected by meditation involve emotional and mental health capacities, influencing processes of emotional control, heightened awareness, and introspection. This falls directly in line with some of the more noticeable results of regular meditation, which often include increased compassion for one’s self and others, enhanced self awareness and introspection, and greater emotional stability. More involvement in meditation practices leads to significant improvements in energy, health and mental/emotional balance. During mindful meditation practice, distractions are minimized and the space between thoughts becomes greater and more profound. As we slowly turn down the constant chatter of our minds, we can begin to access deeper aspects of consciousness for growth and healing.

that sense might make people feel less moral. People who suppress compassion do, apparently, have a change in their sense of morality: they are much more likely to either care less about being moral or to say that it’s all right to be flexible about following moral rules. Cameron thinks this is because suppressing feelings of compassion causes cognitive dissonance that people have to resolve by rearranging their attitudes or beliefs about morality. Everyone who enters your life has a lesson to teach and a story to tell. Every person you pass during the moments that make up your days represents an opportunity to show a little more of the compassion and courtesy that define your humanity. Why not start being more of the person you truly are during your days and doing what you can to enrich the world around you? Kindness, quite simply, is the rent we must pay for the space we occupy on this planet. It is part of our essence. Become more creative in the ways you show compassion to strangers. Paying the toll for the person in the car behind you, offering your seat on the subway to someone in need and being the first to say hello are great places to start. The deeper we go, the more layers we peel, the more access we have to our true essence, and the more genuine our affirmations can be--for this essence is simply pure openness and love, which is the true essence of positive affirmation. Often, and especially in moments of crisis, we can become more genuine to ourselves, and to our experience of existence-and this is the true opportunity presented by crisis. If we keep going deeper, and have the right guidance, we can start peeling into the depth of our experience, peeling back the layers that obstruct our essence.

COMPASSION CAN CHANGE THE WORLD Normally, people assume that ignoring their compassionate feeling doesn’t have any cost--that you can just suppress your sympathy and walk on. But Daryl Cameron and Keith Payne of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill suspected that wasn’t true. “Compassion is such a powerful emotion. It’s been called a moral barometer,” Cameron says. A sense of other people’s suffering may even be the foundation of morality--which suggests that suppressing

hundredth of one percent, to the modern day aristocracy. After analyzing the most recent data, here’s the headline: US millionaire households now have $50 trillion in wealth. They have $39 trillion in legally accounted for wealth, and an estimate of $11 trillion hidden in offshore accounts. Let that sink in for a moment… 50 TRILLION DOLLAR$. Most people cannot even comprehend how much $1 trillion is, let alone $50 trillion. One trillion is equal to 1000 billion, or $1,000,000,000,000.00. Only one-tenth of one percent of the population makes one million dollars a year, and, again, most of that wealth is in the top onehundredth of one percent. To show how consolidated the wealth is, even in the upper most portion of the top one percentile, the richest 400 people have as much wealth as 185 million Americans combined; that’s only 400 people with as much wealth as 60% of the entire US population. Before continuing, let me defuse the reactionary propagandized mind’s instinctive response. This is not about demonizing people just because they have money. There are many people who are using their wealth and resources to improve the human condition. It’s important to understand that the focus here is not on the people who have a mere $10 million or so in wealth. When discussing the modern day aristocracy, the main focus is on the pathological, shortsighted and greed-addicted forces that are doing much more to limit human potential than enhance it. Broadly speaking, the aristocracy is composed of governments, political parties, policy groups, think tanks, intel factions, private military companies, large global corporations, banks and media empires. Included in that are mega-wealthy billionaires and CEOs who have unprecedented control of wealth and resources. For example, the Business Roundtable, the people who run the 147 inter-connected corporations who control half of the world economy. However, the ultimate point here is to show people that there is presently more than enough wealth and capabilities to solve societal problems. We can truly evolve society in unprecedented fashion. At this point, there is an overwhelming majority of the population, even a majority of the mega-wealthy, who realize that our present systems are obsolete, unsustainable and unstable. We don’t need to spend our finite time and energy fighting with each other. We already have a critical mass of aware citizens, we just need to inspire and organize them to build the cultural and political will. Once we do that, we will be an unstoppable force. Let’s get back to that 50 trillion number, because we have had an entire generation of mind-blowing wealth creation that has been systematically withheld from the population. $50,000,000,000,000.00 Can you comprehend how much money $50 trillion is? Just to give a little context, we can end

world hunger and provide clean drinking water to everyone on the planet for an estimated $40 billion. Again, one trillion is one thousand billion, and we are talking about $50 trillion. Imagine what could be done with that amount of wealth. Imagine the implications, the possibilities. Imagine how we could evolve society, to the benefit of everyone, with modern technology and just a fraction of that staggering amount of wealth. The average American (and the rest of us. ed.) cannot comprehend how much wealth there is because there is no frame of reference, no comparison of scale or historical precedent. If Americans (and the rest of us. ed.) had an understanding of how much wealth is being kept from them and the possibilities of what we could do with that wealth, we would have a full-blown societal evolution right now.

Debt Slavery It is the denial of wealth that keeps you in check; it keeps you in debt. Just at the point when technological advancement, production, distribution and wealth increases should have made everyone’s life much easier, just when basic necessities should have become much more affordable . and easier to obtain, they became more expensive. The cost of production dropped dramatically and efficiency of distribution skyrocketed. Housing, food, health and education costs should have plummeted dramatically. However, most basic necessities now come at a much higher price, and people are forced to take on increasing levels of debt to keep up. As most people are aware, student debt, consumer debt, medical debt and household debt have reached all-time record highs. As an old wise person once said, “There . are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt.” We live in a neo-feudal system of debt slavery. The indentured servant is now the indebted consumer. When you understand the wealth at hand, you begin to grasp the crime against humanity that is afoot. We live in the richest, most technologically advanced society humanity has ever known. Yet, here we are, in the 21st century, with an all-time record number of Americans living in poverty. Crime Against Humanity. After careful consideration, it must be said that this is not only the greatest theft of wealth in history; it is also the greatest crime against humanity in history. People can’t afford to pay their medical bills. Millions upon millions of American families have lost their homes, and millions more are on the verge of losing their homes. An all-time record number of children are going hungry. Meanwhile, record-breaking profits and record-breaking bonuses for the bailed out banana republic aristocracy. How healthy is a society when 400 people have as much wealth as 185 million of their neighbors combined? What kind of a system produces a result like that? As famed social

psychologist John Dewey said, “There is no such thing as the liberty or effective power of an individual, group, or class, except in relation to the liberties, the effective powers, of other individuals, groups or classes.” Now that you are beginning to grasp the wealth at hand, and the possibilities of how that wealth can be used to evolve society, let’s take a look at how we got into this situation and how exactly it is that they got away with hoarding so much wealth. To paraphrase a man who fought against the aristocracy, ‘The depravity and amount of suffering required for the accumulation of such a staggering magnitude of wealth, in the hands of a few, is kept out of the picture, out of the mass media, and it is not easy to make people see or understand this.’ Especially when you have an all-encompassing mainstream media propaganda system.

Mental Slavery Conditioned Consciousness “To subdue the enemy without fighting is the highest skill.” - Sun Tzu, The Art of War, 246 BC The mainstream media is the most effective weapon of mass oppression humanity has ever known.

Since the early 1900’s and World War I, a massive propaganda system has been in place. This is not a conspiracy theory; it is all well documented. Research Edward Bernays, Walter Lippman, Ivy Lee, George Creel and the Committee on Public Information for starters. In fact, you don’t even need a conspiracy theory; you just need a basic understanding of propaganda, social psychology and behaviorism – more on that later. The bottom line, as Dewey once said, “We live exposed to the greatest flood of mass suggestion humanity has ever experienced.” Speaking from personal experience, having been born and raised inside this propaganda system, and still obviously living inside it, I have come to realize that even the most independent minded among us vastly underestimates how mentally conditioned we all are. Most people are no more consciously aware of this mental domination than they are aware of gravity. It’s like the air we breathe. For two obvious examples, let’s start with television consumption and advertising. The average American watches more than five hours of TV a day, every single day of their life. American children view more than 40,000 ads per year, every single year of their life. Think about that. That’s intensive mental domination administered on a daily basis, from the cradle to

Acts of Revolution

Continued from page 19 and more added every single day. It is humanly impossible not to break multiple laws every single day. Regulations are revenue builders and/ or control mechanisms. If the “authorities” can ALWAYS find a law that you’ve broken, then they can ALWAYS give a “reason” for punishing you. Punishment might include incarceration, hefty fines, or the removal of some privilege (like taking away your driver’s license or not allowing your child to go to school). “If the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, or can guess what it will be tomorrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?” -- James Madison, Federalist Papers 62 The police state is growing at a dizzying rate, and often the news makes it look like we live in Nazi Germany. It is now or never. Like cockroaches, “they” – the thugs in jackboots and their masters – multiply in the dark, and will soon overtake us if we don’t put a stop to it right now. They want to take our guns because that would make our resistance more difficult. They keep buying up ammo and now have more than enough to kill every man, woman, and child in America multiple times. The NDAA means that any person can be indefinitely detained. There has been a sustained attack on the Bill of Rights, and one by one our rights are being submerged beneath the desires of those who would demand our submission.

How can you be an Everyday Revolutionary? The most revolutionary act is to be selfsufficient and in need of nothing that the government can provide for you in exchange for some small liberty. When there is nothing that you require enough to submit, then bullying you becomes much more difficult. This list of suggestions is by no means comprehensive. Please, add your own random acts of resistance in the comments below. Question absolutely everything you hear on the news. Always be a skeptic. All major media goes back to just a few conglomerates. The “news” is now all a propaganda ploy to help the rich get richer and the powerful remain in power. The media can make or break a candidate with unholy zeal in less than a week. These people and others like them are the ones that decide what “we the people” get to see. If they feel like a candidate or a news item might upset the status quo, they black it out by refusing to cover it. Call out the media. Let everyone know that the mainstream media is the enemy of the people. When you see coverage that is clearly biased, take a moment to call out the media about it. Take the time to comment on mainstream

media websites and point out the unbalanced coverage. If you use social media, share this information and post on the media outlet’s social media pages as well. Get out of the banking system. By opting to “unbank” or “underbank” there is a limit to what can be easily stolen from you. When you have physical control of your financial assets, you are not at as high a risk of losing those assets and, therefore, less likely to be dependent on “the system.” Turn your savings into precious metals or tangible assets. On the same note as unbanking, you definitely don’t want to rely on a 401K or savings account to provide for you in your old age. Ask the people of Cyprus how well that worked out for them. Diversify with assets you can touch. Purchase tangible goods like land, food, ammo, and seeds. Once you are well supplied, move on to precious metals to preserve your wealth. Educate others. At the (very high) risk of people thinking you’re crazy, it’s important to let people know WHY you do what you do. If you are an anti-Monsanto activist, teach others about the dangers of GMOs. If you object to a municipal policy, speak at a town meeting or send a letter to the editor of your local paper. By ranting incoherently or by keeping your mouth shut, you influence no one. By providing provable facts, you can open minds and awaken others to tyranny. Get others involved in the fight. For example, if you are fighting with the city council that wants to rip out the vegetables growing in your front yard, let your friends and neighbors know, post a notice at the grocery store, and write a letter to the editor. When injustice occurs, use the power of social media to spread awareness. Often a public outcry is what is necessary to get the “authorities” to back down. Look at the case of Brandon Raub, the veteran who was kidnapped and taken to a mental hospital for things he posted on Facebook. Raub was not charged, but he was detained in the psych ward involuntarily. His friends and family immediately mobilized and spread the videos of his arrest all over the Internet. It snowballed and alternative media picked it up – soon Raub was released, and all because of a grassroots and social media campaign to bring the injustice to light. Grow your own food. Every single seed that you plant is a revolutionary act. Every bit of food that you don’t have to purchase from the grocery store is a battle cry for your personal independence. When you educate yourself (and others) about Big Food, Big Agri, and the food safety sell-outs at the FDA; you will clearly see that we are alone in our fight for healthy, nutritious foods. Refuse to tolerate these attacks on our health and our lifestyles. Refuse to be held subject to Agenda 21’s version of “sustainability”. Take control of your health. It is imperative that you not blindly trust in the medical establishment. Many members of this establishment are merely prostitutes for their

pimp, Big Pharma. Millions of children are given powerful psychotropic drugs to help them fit into the neat little classroom boxes, and the numbers are growing every day. Americans spent 34.2 BILLION dollars on psychiatric drugs in 2010. Big Pharma is an enormously profitable industry that only pays off if they can convince you that you’re sick. Learn about the toxic injections and medications, weight the risks and benefits, and always look for second and third opinions before making a medical decision. Maintain your health by avoiding toxins, exercising, and ditching your bad habits to reduce the number of doctor’s visits that are necessary. Refuse to comply. If you know your natural rights, which are guaranteed under the Constitution and its Amendments, then it makes it much harder for “authorities” to bully you. You don’t have to let them search your home without a warrant, you don’t have to answer questions, and you don’t have to comply with laws that are in conflict with the Constitution. Learn. Every day, spend time learning. This shouldn’t stop once our formal education ends. Fill your mind with history, with current events, with constitutional law, and information about the natural world. Learn about health, study economics, research things that interest you, and unravel the complicated conspiracies that are afoot. To pursue unbiased knowledge is to free your mind from the prison of propaganda and indoctrination. Don’t consume chemicals that cause you to be dumbed down. Avoid chemical-laden food with brain-killing neurotoxins like MSG and aspartame. Don’t drink fluoridated water. Embrace your right to bear arms. Be responsible for your own safety and security. Don’t be in debt. No one can be free if they are in debt. If you are in debt, you are forced to work in whatever conditions are present, for whatever amount is offered, complying with whatever criteria is necessary to keep your job in order to either pay your debt or face penalties. As well, the high interest rates that you pay only serve to make the bankers more wealthy. Instead of borrowing, save until you can afford something, or realize that if you could actually afford it, you wouldn’t need to borrow money to have it. Be prepared for disaster. Have enough food, water, and supplies to take care of your family in the event of a natural disaster. Don’t expect FEMA to take care of you. Be involved in your children’s education. For some, this means homeschooling or unschooling, and for others this means being on top of what they are learning in a formal school setting. Join the PTA and actively volunteer if your child goes to school. Be an advocate for your child and insist that the teachers teach. If your child goes to school, supplement this at home with discourse about current events and outings that help them learn about the world around them. Be the squeaky wheel. If you see something wrong, don’t just ignore it. Say something about it, and keep saying something until it changes. Whether this is some process that infringes on your privacy, a job requirement that impedes your health, or another injustice, pursue it relentlessly. Ask questions publicly, write letters, and use social media to bring pressure to encourage a change. Reduce your consumer spending. Spending less helps to starve the beast by reducing the sales taxes you pay and withdrawing your financial support to big conglomerates. If we vote with our dollars, eventually there will, of a necessity, be a paradigm shift that returns us to simpler days, when families that were willing to work hard could make a living without selling their souls to the corporate monoliths. A low-consumption lifestyle reduces your financial dependency,

which allows for more freedom. Ditch popular culture. If reality TV isn’t a tool for dumbing people down, I don’t know what it is. My daughter recently begged to watch an episode of a popular reality TV show that “everyone” was watching. She managed about 15 minutes of it and then said, “This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen.” She decided to read a book instead. Popular entertainment is a media tool used to change our perspectives about our personal values, and to tell us how to think and feel about issues. Buy locally. Support local small businesses to help others who are fighting for independence from the system. You might pay a little bit more than you would at your big box store, but the only people benefiting from your purchases made at the corporate stores are those with the seven figure annual bonuses. Develop multiple streams of income. Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket. Figure out several ways to bring in income. Not only does this free you from being a wage slave, but it allows you to hire friends or family members. You are less entangled in the system and not subject to corporate whims. If one business fails, or becomes subject to regulations that make it no longer worthwhile, you are not forced to comply just to keep a roof over your head. Say thanks, but no thanks. There is no such thing as a benevolent handout. Nearly anything offered for free (particularly by a government entity) has strings attached. Maybe there is a handy-dandy registration form that you need to fill out. You might be influenced to vote a certain way just to keep the freebies coming. You might have to pee in a cup every two weeks. Perhaps one day you’ll need to have a microchip embedded in your hand. Either way, by accepting handouts from those in “authority”, you become beholden to them or you need them, and someone who is free is neither beholden nor needy. Don’t take the easy road. The PTB like to seduce people with simplicity. “If you just sign this paper, it will be much easier,” they say. “This chip is for your convenience,” they tell you. “By giving up this, it lets us take care of you and you will be much safer.” The easy road only gets you to Slave Street a whole lot faster. Take the difficult road and be responsible for yourself. Don’t take shortcuts that compromise your beliefs. Go to court to fight a ticket, read the laws and defend yourself, and know that anything you give up, you will never get back. According to the Declaration of Independence, “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” That means that you don’t have to accept the unjust laws. That means you don’t have to quietly take it, muttering under your breath that it isn’t right, but not daring to raise your voice. That means that “they” are only in control of you if you allow it. There are nearly 316 million people in the United States. Only 3% of the population fought in the Revolutionary War, and 10% actively supported them. If 9,480,000 people quietly and peacefully revolted by withdrawing their consent to be governed by tyrants we could not be silenced. If 31,600,000 people supported those revolting, we could not be stopped. The government might be watching us, but we can watch them right back. Make the way you live your life a revolutionary act. What random act of revolution did you commit today? _______________ Daisy Luther is a freelance writer and editor.

Modern Wheat Is The ‘Perfect Chronic Poison’ T

by Natasha Longo

he world’s most popular grain is also the deadliest for the human metabolism. Modern wheat isn’t a wheat at all and is a “perfect, chronic poison,” according to Dr. William Davis, a cardiologist, author and leading expert on wheat. Approximately 700 million tons of wheat are now cultivated worldwide making it the second most-produced grain after maize. It is grown on more land area than any other commercial crop and is considered a staple food for humans. At some point in our history, this ancient grain was nutritious in some respects, however modern wheat really isn’t wheat at all. Once agribusiness took over to develop a higheryielding crop, wheat became hybridized to such an extent that it has been completely transformed from it’s prehistorical genetic configuration. All nutrient content of modern wheat depreciated more than 30% in its natural unrefined state compared to its ancestral genetic line. The balance and ratio that mother nature created for wheat was also modified and human digestion and physiology could simply could not adapt quick enough to the changes. Davis said that the wheat we eat these days isn’t the wheat your grandma had: “It’s an 18inch tall plant created by genetic research in the ‘60s and ‘70s,” he said on “CBS This Morning.” “This thing has many new features nobody told you about, such as there’s a new protein in this thing called gliadin. It’s not gluten. I’m not addressing people with gluten sensitivities and celiac disease. I’m talking about everybody else because everybody else is susceptible to the gliadin protein that is an opiate. This thing binds into the opiate receptors in your brain and in most people stimulates appetite, such that we consume 440 more calories per day, 365 days per year.” Asked if the farming industry could change back to the grain it formerly produced, Davis said it could, but it would not be economically feasible because it yields less per acre. However, Davis said a movement has begun with people turning away from wheat - and dropping substantial weight. “If three people lost eight pounds, big deal,” he said. “But we’re seeing hundreds of thousands of people losing 30, 80, 150 pounds. Diabetics become no longer diabetic; people with arthritis having dramatic relief. People losing leg swelling, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and on and on every day.” To avoid these wheat-oriented products, Davis suggests eating “real food,” such as avocados, olives, olive oil, meats, and vegetables. “(It’s) the stuff that is least likely to have been changed by agribusiness,” he said. “Certainly not grains. When I say grains, of course, over 90 percent of all grains we eat will be wheat, it’s not barley... or flax. It’s going to be wheat. The Nutritional Value of Wheat is Practically Non-Existent In Its Current Form So-called health experts in nutrition who continue to promote the health benefits of wheat are extremely uninformed about the nature of modern wheat and its evolution from growth to consumption. It is shocking how many professionals in public health still recommend wheat products without an assessment of their individual requirements, especially considering the amount of evidence regarding its lack of nutrition and health risks for proportionally large segments of the population.

PreventDisease.com The majority of wheat is processed into 60% extraction, bleached white flour. Sixty percent extraction--the standard for most wheat products means that 40% of the original wheat grain is removed. So not only do we have an unhealthier, modified, and hybridized strain of wheat, we also remove and further degrade its nutritional value by processing it. Unfortunately, the 40% that gets removed includes the bran and the germ of the wheat grain--its most nutrient-rich parts. In the process of making 60% extraction flour, over half of the vitamin B1, B2, B3, E, folic acid, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, iron, and fibre are lost. Any processed foods with wheat are akin to poison for the body since they cause more health risks than benefits. The body does not recognize processed wheat as food. Nutrient absorption from processed wheat products is thus consequential with almost no nutritional value. Some experts claim if you select 100% whole wheat products, the bran and the germ of the wheat will remain in your meals, and the health benefits will be impressive. This is again a falsity promoted by the wheat industry since even 100% whole wheat products are based on modern wheat strains created by irradiation of wheat seeds and embryos with chemicals, gamma rays, and high-dose X-rays to induce mutations. Whether you consume 10% or 100% of wheat is irrelevant since you’re still consuming a health damaging grain that will not benefit, advance or even maintain your health in any way. Dr. Marcia Alvarez who specializes in nutritional programs for obese patients says that when it comes to nutrition, wheat may be considered as an evil grain. “Modern wheat grains could certainly be considered as the root of all evil in the world of nutrition since they cause so many documented health problems across so many populations in the world.” Dr. Alvarez asserted that wheat is now responsible for more intolerances than almost any other food in the world. “In my practice of over two decades, we have documented that for every ten people with digestive problems, obesity, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, arthritis and even heart disease, eight out of ten have a problem with wheat. Once we remove wheat from their diets, most of their symptoms disappear within three to six months,” she added. Dr. Alvarez estimates that between the coming influx of genetically modified (GM) strains of wheat and the current tendency of wheat elimination in societies, a trend is emerging that in the next 20 years will likely see 80% of people cease their consumption of wheat in any form.

Health Effects There is a powerful little chemical in wheat known as ‘wheat germ agglutinin’ (WGA) which is largely responsible for many of wheat’s pervasive, and difficult to diagnose, ill effects. Researchers are now discovering that WGA in modern wheat is very different from ancient strains. Not only does WGA throw a monkey wrench into our assumptions about the primary causes of wheat intolerance, but due to the fact that WGA is found in highest concentrations in “whole wheat,” including its supposedly superior sprouted form, it also pulls the rug out from under one of the health food industry’s favourite poster children. Each grain of wheat contains about one microgram of Wheat Germ Agglutinin (WGA). Even in small quantities, WGA can have profoundly adverse effects. It may be pro-inflammatory, immunotoxic, cardiotoxic ... and neurotoxic. Below the radar of conventional serological testing for antibodies against the various gluten proteins and genetic testing for disease susceptibility, the WGA “lectin problem” remains almost entirely obscured. Lectins, though found in all grains, seeds, legumes, dairy and our beloved nightshades: the tomato and potato, are rarely discussed in connection with health or illness, even when their presence in our diet may greatly reduce both the quality and length of our lives. Yet health experts dismiss the links between disease and wheat despite all the evidence. Dr William Davis has documented several hundred clinical studies on the adverse effects

of wheat. These are studies that document the neurologic impairments unique to wheat, including cerebellar ataxia and dementia; heart disease; visceral fat accumulation and all its attendant health consequences; the process of glycation via amylopectin A of wheat that leads to cataracts, diabetes, and arthritis; among others. There are, in fact, a wealth of studies documenting the adverse, often crippling, effects of wheat consumption in humans. The other claim is that wheat elimination ‘means missing out on a wealth of essential nutrients. Another falsity. Dr. Davis states that if you replace wheat with healthy foods like vegetables, nuts, healthy oils, meats, eggs, cheese, avocados, and olives, then there is no nutrient deficiency that develops with elimination of wheat. Dr Davis also states that people with celiac disease may require long-term supplementation due to extensive gastrointenstinal damage caused by wheat. People with celiac disease do indeed experience deficiencies of multiple vitamins and minerals after they eliminate all wheat and gluten from the diet. But this is not due to a diet lacking valuable nutrients, but from the incomplete healing of the gastrointestinal tract (such as the lining of the duodenum and proximal jejunum). In these people, the destructive effects of wheat are so overpowering that, unfortunately, some people never heal completely. These people do indeed require vitamin and mineral supplementation, as well as probiotics and pancreatic enzyme supplementation.

Continued on page 26

It’s Really A Wheat Issue Some health resources, such as the Mayo Clinic, advocate a more balanced diet that does include wheat. But Davis said on “CTM” they’re just offering a poor alternative. “All that the literature says is to replace something bad, white enriched products with something less bad, whole grains, and there’s an apparent health benefit - ‘Let’s eat a whole bunch of less bad things.’ So I take...unfiltered cigarettes and replace with Salem filtered cigarettes, you should smoke the Salems. That’s the logic of nutrition, it’s a deeply flawed logic. What if I take it to the next level, and we say, ‘Let’s eliminate all grains,’ what happens then? “That’s when you see, not improvements in health, that’s when you see transformations in health.”

the grave. Ultimately, as Phil Merikle summed it up, “It’s what advertisers have known all along: if we just keep the exposure rate up, people will be influenced.” Repetition, it’s all about repetition. Repetitive messages fill our mental atmosphere. To paraphrase Philip Lesley in Managing the Human Climate, ‘When a message appears all around you, you tend to accept it and take it for granted. You find yourself surrounded by it and your subconscious mind absorbs and becomes immersed in the climate of repetitive ideas.’ They form the origins of your thoughts. It’s where your desires, opinions and perspectives are born. To spin a McLuhan riff, the mainstream mass media is the software on which our minds run; it’s our operating system. It’s an extension of our nervous system. Repetitive mainstream propaganda creates a belief system, popular reference points, symbols, archetypes, mental patterns, a mindset and groupthink, all based on repetition – and groupthink is a highly contagious infectious disease. It’s hard to escape groupthink. As with freedom and democracy, you must be ever vigilant to avoid the tyranny of groupthink and cultural conditioning. As Walter Lippmann said, “In the great blooming, buzzing confusion of the outer world, we pick out what our culture has already defined for us, and we tend to perceive that which we have picked out in the form stereotyped for us by our culture.” To remix a quote from Dostoevsky, ‘Leave people alone without mass media and they will be lost and confused. They will not know what to support, what to cling to, what to love and what to hate, what to respect and what to despise.’ Malcolm X said it best, “The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.”

The mainstream media keeps everyone isolated inside a false reality, a pseudo mental environment. People are trapped in a bubble of status quo supporting reality, in a bubble of what’s good for shortsighted, short-term corporate interests. People’s consciousness and awareness gets conditioned and contracted, they become isolated and detached from wider reality. People are born and raised inside mass media created illusions. As Eduardo Galeano put it, “The majority must resign itself to the consumption of fantasy. Illusions of wealth are sold to the poor, illusions of freedom to the oppressed, dreams of victory to the defeated and of power to the weak.” As Harold Lasswell said in 1927, “The new antidote to willfulness is propaganda. If the mass will be free of chains of iron, it must accept its chains of silver. If it will not love, honor, and obey, it must not expect to escape seduction.” Now, let’s sharpen our focus a bit and look from a more practical perspective.

The Spectrum of Thinkable Thought The censorship that is most prevalent today is the most dangerous form. Not censorship of explicit words, sex or violence, but censorship of any thoughts outside of shortsighted corporate ideology. Any that lead to critical thoughts on the established power structure or veer outside of the spectrum of status quo supporting opinions are left out of the debate, and out of mainstream public consciousness. The mainstream press does not cover the most vital social, economic and political issues. The more important something is, the less they report on it. If mentioned at all, it’s mentioned in passing, with little, if any, indepth reporting, discussion and debate on it. It’s censorship by omission and bullshit on repetition. As Noam Chomsky observed, this is

how propaganda and social control posing as freedom and democracy works: “The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum…. That gives people the sense that there’s freethinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate.” To paraphrase Alex Carey, they create ‘the spectrum of thinkable thought. They set the terms of debate, to determine the kinds of questions that will dominate public consciousness, people’s thoughts. They set the political agenda in ways that are favorable to shortsighted corporate interests. The debate is never about the curtailment of the manipulative power of entrenched global corporations.’ Imagine wall-to-wall 24/7 news coverage of the trillions of dollars in fraudulent activity that got us into this mess. Imagine in-depth coverage of the corruption of our political process through a system of bribery that makes the mafia look like amateurs. What about the staggering consolidation of wealth? Imagine if the media kept discussing how a small percentage of the population has 50 trillion dollars, then they started debating how we could use just a fraction of that money to solve problems, create solutions and evolve society. What if they reported on all the wealth and resources that a small number of corporations control, then debated how that wealth and those resources could be redeployed to get us onto a sustainable and thriving path? When you understand what is possible, you see how truly corrupt, shortsighted, ignorant and obsolete our system of rule is. You then realize that our mainstream media system is pure propaganda. When you see the reality that they don’t tell you about, it becomes all too clear. If you were to just look at what they don’t tell you, you would see. Mainstream media is the most

effective weapon of mass oppression humanity has ever known. It’s hard to break free, when you are always told you are free. As Huxley put it in Brave New World Revisited, “The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that they are a victim. To them, the walls of their prison are invisible, and they believe they are free.” You can’t break free until you see the walls. The whips and chains have evolved into TVs and radios. As William Blum said, “Propaganda is to democracy what violence is to dictatorships.” If television was around in the 1770s, we would still be living under British rule. In the land of propaganda, tyranny is democracy. It’s “enlightened despotism.” When it comes to oppression, it’s all cyclical yet evolutionary. Most people live in a mental cage now, they toil on mentally conditioned plantations.

Behaviorism & Assembly Line Intelligentsia People reading this may try to dismiss it as a conspiracy theory. We must always be conscious of the reactionary propagandized mind and the army of paid off propagandists who uphold this system of mental domination. “Conspiracy theory” is the ultimate label to trigger dismissal without causing people to think about the content and substance of the message. When it comes to the reactionary propagandized mind, their impulsive, instinctive dismissal further demonstrates how well they have been indoctrinated and conditioned. Once again, you don’t need a conspiracy theory to understand the system of mental conditioning; you just need to have a basic understanding of propaganda, social psychology and behaviorism. Modern indoctrinated intelligentsia have been produced like products off an assembly line. In The Genesis of the Technocratic Elite, Zoran Vidakovic breaks down how the assembly line of indoctrination works:

_ TAR SANDS KILL Pipelines Spill T

by Elva Thompson

ZenGardner.com

he Custer, Hot Springs and Deadwood school districts each held a drill recently to test their crisis management programme in response to a terrorist threat. The source of that ‘threat’ was a group opposing the Keystone XL pipeline. What sane person would not have legitimate concerns about the Keystone XL Pipeline? What sane person would not care about the poisoning of water, earth and air? So, I ask: Since when has war been declared on American Families? Since when has the backbone of our country been subjected to the terrorism of Immanent domain, threats and murder by a foreign corporation? On June 1st 2013, a wonderful lady called Phyllis Cole-Dai sent a letter complaining about the drills to The Daily Republic newspaper in Mitchell. South Dakota. Here is an excerpt: “Are our taxpayer dollars really to pay for an exercise in which some of us are portrayed as potential domestic terrorists simply because we challenge prevailing public opinion, bully corporations or broken government? West River officials responsible for this drill told me they ‘never intended to offend anyone and are very sorry that some citizens have taken offence.” This sort of “non-apology” apology has become typical of our public officials, and it misses the point. This drill was offensive not just to “some persons” but to the people. In no democracy should public officials be allowed to demonize a group of citizens because of their stance on a particular issue. Some of the drill planners blamed the journalist who reported its success for having made public their private script. But that

journalist was just doing his job. If planners are now on the defensive, it’s because their script was fundamentally inappropriate. Officials said they focused on Keystone XL because it would add realism to the scenario. But you don’t “add realism” by being unrealistic. No Keystone XL opponent is known ever to have threatened a school or any other public place. In fact, many (if not most) of us are expressly devoted to nonviolence. So why paint us — or any group of citizens — with a “terrorist” brush, unless to attack our goals?’

A wheat farmer from South Dakota told the press, that the pipeline consultants didn’t even survey his land before they reported it as “low consequence” status, which allowed TransCanada to build the Keystone I through the aquifer in 2009, using thinner pipe and higher pressure than any other pipeline before it. When farmers in the area requested thicker pipe to reduce the risk of water contamination, their concerns went unheeded. “TransCanada absolutely ignored us. They plowed on through,” he said.”

Continued from page 18 in the UK found that people with higher vitamin D levels had a 43% lower risk of depression, compared to people with vitamin D lower levels. Results published in Clinical Nutrition also indicated that the higher vitamin D levels were associated with a 67% lower risk of panic, compared to the lower levels. “The high burden of mental and behavioural disorders and concurrent high prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency worldwide (29) highlight the potential importance of our findings,” wrote the researchers, led by Jane Maddock from the UCL Institute of Child Health. People with the highest levels of vitamin D have the lowest risk of skin cancer. Sure, you can get some of that from a pill…but historically, most people have gotten their D straight from the source: the sun, and protecting yourself from it 100 years ago with clothing, cream or anything would likely have been viewed as its own mental health disorder. How To Make Your Own Non-Toxic Sunscreen While the sun will not cause cancer, it is not in your best interest to burn your skin. So if you are prone to burning easily, try making your own natural sunscreen to extend your exposure. New York Times Best selling author, Sophie Uliano of Gorgeously Green and her new book DO IT GORGEOUSLY, shows you how to make your own non toxic sunscreen in less than 4 minutes. Please omit zinc oxide from the recipe to make a truly natural and toxic free version of this

Of course the favourite victims of malevolent corporations are Native People. The soulless minions of agri-business come to the tribal council with gifts and false promises,  just like they did five hundred years ago. But Indian people are catching on. TransCanada reps were kicked out of Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation on May 14, 2013. “You’re not welcome here… We’ve said no from day one.” And with these firm words the TransCanada representatives were kicked out of  Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation last week. The seemingly aloof TransCanada officials showed up  at the Tribal Office in Eagle Butte, South Dakota in an attempt to win the tribe over to the pipeline, but were met with a swift, firm response. Robin LeBeau, Cheyenne River Sioux Councilwoman for District 5, saw them in the parking lot and promptly told them off. How long are we going to sit on our asses while our planet is being devastated in the name of profit? Take a look at the Tar Sands. Is this our future? We do not need oil. The free energy technology that Tesla pioneered has been deliberately suppressed by TPTB.  Profit from pollution is the name of their game, while humanity looks on: like a prisoner awaiting execution. Now is the time for the spiritual warrior in all of us to Awake and Act. “We must rise like lions after slumber, in unvanquishable number. Shake you chains to earth like dew, which in sleep has fallen on you. We are many-they are few.” P. B. Shelley

sunscreen, especially during preparation. Zinc oxide can affect the lungs and reproductive system if inhaled. Replace the zinc oxide with 1 tablespoon of avocado oil which helps increase the sun protection factor (SPF). Recipe: (SPF 6-8) • • • • •

2 tablespoon Virgin Coconut Oil 1 tablespoon Shea Butter 1 tablespoon Avocado Oil 1/2 teaspoon Sesame Oil 1/2 teaspoon Aloe Vera Gel

Keep in mind that this recipe will not allow you to stay in the sun for hours without burning, even if you have darker skin. If you have pale skin and are prone to burning in very short periods, this recipe will only modestly protect you when UV rays are at their highest strength. Intermittent periods spent in the shade are highly recommended to balance the UV dose you receive. For those that tan well, this lotion will give you an excellent colour and glow if used daily while spending a minimum of 30 minutes in the sun. Although it not waterproof, it is water resistant if applied thoroughly and spread evenly. In direct sunlight, you must reapply a thin layer of the lotion every half hour for optimal results. Spread the word: Please promote the use of non-toxic sunscreens. ________________

“Selection, education, and specific indoctrination of technical and administrative cadres are carried out first in metropolitan educational and research factories and their branches in dependent societies, under the wing of the superficially independent foundations which sustain the international projects of ‘technical aid,’ and then within the personnel policy of the transnational corporations that raise people from the local environments to responsible managerial and technical functions in their internationally located branches, or that in other ways subordinate and direct the ‘modernized’ industrial entrepreneurs, agrarian ‘reformers,’ functionaries, and leading intellectuals from the ministries and banks, universities, and public information, cultural, and scientific institutions. The essential effect of this great factory for the almost assembly line production of dependent and emasculated ‘technocratic elites’ is that the material position, status, and professional success of the members of these groups imperatively depends on their conformity to the ideology of dependence and the interiorization of the intellectual, political, and ideological characteristics of this social type programmed in metropolitan laboratories for the technological, social, and cultural transformation of ‘developing countries.’… The ideology of total repression unites with the ideology of technological and cultural dependency and assimilation; in this union repression gains strength as the condition of the entire dependent economic growth, technological progress, and ‘modernization of society,’ as a circle of insurmountable dependency on the import of prefabricated knowledge and technical and consumerist models is closed up by the ambitions of the protagonists of authoritarian rule.” We live in a Skinner box. It’s classic “behavioral modification” (b-mod) within a “token economy.” We have an outdated system of incentives; you incentivize and reward certain behavior, and you punish or withdraw basic necessities for other behavior. It’s behaviorism 101. Give people a paycheck to have certain opinions, to do certain things. You can see it everywhere, in almost all professions, not just the media. If you think a certain way, if you do certain things, you will be awarded with a paycheck. If you don’t, you lose your paycheck. Or, as Thomas Paine said in the Rights of Man, “Those who do not participate in this enacting do not get fed.” People get paid a lot of money to spew bullshit talking points propaganda on a daily basis. The truth of the matter: if you propagate the message of tyrants, and if you are good at it, you can become rich and famous. That’s what primitive self-obsessed ego-driven careerists do. They are the ultimate pawns of empire. They enrich themselves by riding the coattails of conquerors. As W.E.H. Lecky once said, ‘The simple fact of applying certain penalties to the profession of particular opinions, and rewards to the profession of opposite opinions, while it will make many hypocrites, it will also make many converts.’ Our Skinner box society, our token economy is run by the modern day aristocracy through a system of enlightened despotism. You either bow down and play by their rules or you lose access to basic necessities. It’s the root of modern monetary enslavement – debt and wage slavery. The fact of the matter, the truth of the matter: we are not supposed to be freethinking participatory citizens involved in the decision-making processes that guide our lives and determine our fate. We are mentally conditioned to be spectators, mindless reactionary consumers and wage slaves.

Totalitarian Minds Inside the All-Consuming Cult If you want to get wicked about it, we could quote extensively from the work of Edward Bernays, Gustave LeBon or Walter Lippman on the “bewildered herd,” but that’s too easy. Let’s drop some Jacques Ellul, from his 1965 analysis of the social mind, Propaganda: The Formation of Men’s Attitudes: “Propaganda is today a greater danger to mankind than any of the other more grandly advertised threats hanging over the human race…. Propaganda ruins not only democratic ideas but also democratic behavior – the foundation of democracy, the very quality without which it cannot exist…. Propaganda destroys its very foundations. It creates a man who is suited to a totalitarian society…. A man who lives in a democratic society and who is subjected to propaganda is being drained of the democratic content itself – of the style of democratic life, understanding of others… he is a ‘totalitarian man with

Poison Wheat

Continued from page 23 Due to the unique properties of amylopectin A, two slices of whole wheat bread increase blood sugar higher than many candy bars. High blood glucose leads to the process of glycation that, in turn, causes arthritis (cartilage glycation), cataracts (lens protein glycation), diabetes (glycotoxicity of pancreatic beta cells), hepatic de novo lipogenesis that increases triglycerides and, thereby, increases expression of atherogenic (heart disease-causing) small LDL particles, leading to heart attacks. Repetitive high blood sugars that develop from a grain-rich diet are, in my view, very destructive and lead to weight gain (specifically visceral fat), insulin resistance, leptin resistance (leading to obesity), and many of the health struggles that many now experience. Wheat gliadin has been associated with cerebellar ataxia, peripheral neuropathy, gluten encephalopathy (dementia), behavioural outbursts in children with ADHD and autism, and paranoid delusions and auditory hallucinations in people with schizophrenia, severe and incapacitating effects for people suffering from these conditions. According to statistics from the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center, an average of one out of every 133 otherwise healthy people in the United States suffers from Celiac Disease (CD). However, an estimated 20-30 percent of the world’s population may carry the genetic susceptibility to celiac disease--and the way to avoid turning these genes ‘on’ is by avoiding gluten. When you consider that undiagnosed CD is associated with a nearly four-fold increased risk of premature death, the seriousness of this food sensitivity becomes quite evident. The primary disease mechanism at play is chronic inflammation, and chronic inflammatory and degenerative conditions are endemic to grain-consuming populations. Changes in genetic code and, thereby, antigenic profile, of the high-yield semi-dwarf wheat cultivars now on the market account for the marked increase in celiac potential nationwide. “Hybridization” techniques, including chemical mutagenesis to induce selective mutations, leads to development of unique strains that are not subject to animal or human safety testing--they are just brought to market and sold. Wheat-Free Options * Note that many of the wheat-free options still contain gluten and many people sensitive to wheat may still experience digestive problems and bloating. Experiment in see what works best for you. Caution is advised with cereal grains if you have diagnosed with gluten intolerance. 1. Cereal Grains: Barley, millet, oats, rice, rye, sorghum, tef and wild rice are all in the same cereal grain family as is wheat. All flours ground from cereal grains may be used as a wheat substitute. Commonly available are barley, buckwheat, rice and rye flour. The less utilized flours may be purchased online or from natural food stores. Note: people with a gluten allergy must also avoid barley, oats and rye. 2. Non-Cereal Grains: Amaranth, quinoa and buckwheat are three grain-like seeds unrelated to cereal grains. (Despite its name, buckwheat is not a wheat-relative.) It is rare for anyone to develop a sensitivity to these non-cereal grains. Amaranth, quinoa and buckwheat are gluten-free and therefore not suitable for making leavened bread; however, they make excellent quick breads and cookies. 3. Nut Meal: Ground nuts such as almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts make the richest flour substitute for cookies and cakes. Because their fragile fatty acid content gives them a brief shelf life, it’s preferable to grind your own nuts in a food processor just prior to use. Nut meal requires a binding agent such as eggs. Because chestnuts are lower in fat than other nuts, chestnut flour has a longer shelf life. It is available online. 4. Bean Flour: Dried beans, such as navy, pinto and chickpeas may be milled and used, in combination with other flours, as a wheat alternative. Bean flour is, however, not always recommended. It tastes like beans and makes baked goods dense and hard to digest. 5. Other Flour Substitutes: Potato starch, arrowroot powder, and tapioca are thickening agents that substitute for wheat in sauces and gravy. In baked goods these starchy ingredients serve as a binding agent. ________________ Natasha Longo has a master’s degree in nutrition and is a certified fitness and nutritional counsellor.

Remove toxic Heavy Metals in 7 Hours T

he safe removal of heavy metals is becoming one of the modern world’s biggest health issues. Heavy metals surround us; chemtrails, vaccinations, air and water pollution, living or working near a smelter or mine, dental fillings and of course, the kingpin of all, fluoridated water. Hydrofluosilicic acid, the chemical often used to fluoridate drinking water, is an industrial waste that contains lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum, benzene and radioactive waste material. A fact that boggles the mind and poses the question… How did we let this end up in our water?

Heavy Metals Poisoning “In my clinical experience, everyone has excessive amounts of some, or all of the toxic metals” says Lawrence Wilson, MD. No one in the industrial world is untouched, and the effects of heavy metals are nothing short of frightening, with links to impaired brain and motor function, Alzheimer’s, dementia, heart disease and genetic defects. Heavy metals replace the body’s needed minerals, for instance, lead will replace calcium in the bones, weakening them and causing osteoporosis. Lead also replaces calcium in the blood cells, damaging the blood and causing a severe form of anemia. It then goes to the brain, where it replaces calcium, iron magnesium and other vital elements that are found there. Cadmium will replace zinc in a male’s testicles as well as in a woman’s ovaries, causing countless reproductive issues. Male and female sexual fluids are rich in zinc, this can cause low sperm counts, impotence in men, reduced fertility in women, and increased libido in women. “Cadmium is so toxic to the brain that it causes what might be called ‘a small rebellion’ in the tissues of the brain, which results in violent thoughts.  One notices this as one removes cadmium, that violent thoughts and even one’s violent impulses diminish” Lawrence Wilson, MD. Mercury is one of the most toxic minerals known to man, and yet it is also one of the most common heavy metal’s used today. It’s even used in children’s vaccines as a preservative in the form Thimerosal. “If you inject thimerosal into an animal, it’s brain will sicken. If you apply it to living tissue, the cells die. If you put it in a petri dish the culture dies. Knowing these things, it would be shocking if one could inject it into an infant without causing damage.” - Boyd Haley PhD, Professor and Chair, Department of Chemistry, University of Kentucky. The list of debilitating illnesses associated with mercury is incredibly vast and mercury exposure should be avoided at all costs. When heavy metals are present and needed minerals are low, the body will use heavy metals for enzyme creation. As this occurs, the metals inhibit, overstimulate or otherwise alter thousands of enzymes. An affected enzyme may operate at 5% of normal activity. This may contribute to countless health conditions. The importance of enzymes can not be underestimated. Some health professionals believe them to be the key to good health and longevity. “The length of life is inversely proportional to the rate of exhaustion of the enzyme potential of an organism.” - The Enzyme Nutrition Axiom formulated by Dr Edward Howell

Now for the Good News!

Liquid zeolite also captures some of the allergens and antigens that trigger allergies, migraines, and asthma, and helps to reduce symptoms. Liquid zeolite increases immune system function by removing the toxins and pathogens that depress immune function and interfere with hormone balance. It effectively stimulates the immune system, which further helps deal with toxins, viruses, yeasts, bacteria and fungi. As a result, many people report feeling increased energy, clarity and vitality of life.

Natural mineral compound zeolite, specifically clinoptilolite – which is found in Natural Cellular Defence pure liquid zeolite – has the perfect structure for removing heavy metals and will do it quickly and safely. Clinoptilolite is shaped like a cage and is one of only a few minerals in nature that carries a negative charge. It’s this amazing combination that allows the zeolite to capture toxic heavy metals containing a positive charge including mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum, bismuth, antimony, barium, depleted uranium and many others. Zeolite will then remove them from the body; once the toxins are trapped in the zeolite molecule they are almost impossible for them to escape this bond. Zeolite is incredibly fast-acting and is completely removed from the body in 5-7 hours and in turn, so are the trapped toxins and heavy metals. Zeolite is removed through normal bodily processes and due to it trapping toxic material it greatly reduces the burden on liver and kidneys. A full body detox to remove all metals will take 4-9 weeks depending on age, general health and diet. If the zeolite is properly micronized, meaning the particle’s have been ground to a microscopic size, it will be able to break the blood brain barrier and clean out toxins like mercury and lead from the brain. It’s important that you see 3rd Party Particle Testing to verify the particle’s size before buying any zeolite product. All zeolite’s will still work, but mainly in the intestine, similar to bentonite clay. Zeolite has some other incredible benefits, there is evidence that it can also destroy cancer cells directly by triggering the P-21 gene. “When NCD’s molecular cages contain a heavy metal ion they have a polarized charge and as this polarized cage goes near a cancer cell their polar charge makes it easy for them to go through cancer cell membranes but not normal cell membranes. But when the cancer cell identifies the zeolite in the cell it realizes that something may be wrong for it to be there in the first place and switches on the P21 gene that self-destructs the cancer cell.” Biochemist Dr Rik Deitsch. Once the heavy metal concentrations have been reduced, the zeolite latches on to viral pieces or components. Because viruses replicate by first manufacturing viral components and then assembling them into a complete virus, pure liquid zeolite, in essence, removes parts from the assembly line and blocks viral replication. It will also buffer blood PH, as a slightly alkaline body pH (7.35 – 7.45) is essential for good health and optimal immune function. Liquid zeolite attracts and then buffers excess protons which cause acidity and in this way can help many conditions ranging from acid reflux to Candida and arthritis. In the same way that liquid zeolite can buffer excess protons and thus help balance body pH, it can also buffer excess glucose by its negative charge and therefore helps reduce blood sugar spikes and lowers insulin dependency. The cage-like structure of liquid zeolite traps free radical molecules, making it an effective antioxidant. This is not to say that liquid zeolite is a substitute for more conventional antioxidants such as Vitamins C, E and A, lutein and selenium, all of which have other vital roles to play in the body.

Is Zeolite Safe? The removal of heavy metals and toxins is paramount in any health regime. Whether you are trying to treat a disease, looking to prevent disease or just remove the toxic burdens all around us, zeolite is an amazing tool that will make a huge difference. You may be asking “well won’t it remove all the good metals? And won’t it make me iron deficient?” The answer is NO. Interestingly, people taking zeolite show a net increase in iron levels and other beneficial minerals – due to the removal of the dangerous heavy metals that will block their absorption and storage. Zeolite is somewhat selective as it will go after the particles with the highest charge first, for example mercury and lead. It is recommended that you supplement your diet with a good quality broad spectrum colloidal mineral to make sure you replace all the things you’ve been missing. In over 800 years of use throughout the world, there has never been any side effects to zeolite recorded. However, slight dehydration can occur so be sure to drink plenty of water during the detoxification process. Natural Cellular Defence from Pure Liquid Zeolite has also been safely used by pregnant women, nursing mothers and small children. It is safe to take with most medication, and has been granted a status of GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the United States FDA (Food & Drug Administration). “With liquid zeolite, we have returned to the basic healing approach for all chronic diseases, which is to free up and activate the vital life force. Liquid Zeolite is truly an alchemical gift from the Divine” - Gabriel Cousens M.D.

The safe removal of heavy metals from the body is becoming one of the modern world’s biggest health issues. I truly believe Pure Liquid Zeolite to be one of the keys to achieving good health in the 21st century.

democratic convictions,’ but those convictions do not change his behavior in the least. Such contradiction is in no way felt by the individual for whom democracy has become a myth and a set of democratic imperatives, merely stimuli that activate conditioned reflexives. The word democracy, having become a simple incitation, no longer has anything to do with democratic behavior. And the citizen can repeat indefinitely ‘the sacred formulas of democracy’ while acting like a storm trooper.” That is as accurate a depiction of the average modern American as I have ever come across. In the same book, Ellul went on to explain the inherent danger of our two-party system and the general apathy Americans (and others. ed.)have toward politics: “The conflicting propaganda of opposing parties is essentially what leads to political abstention. But this is not the abstention of the free spirit which asserts itself; it is the result of resignation, the external symptom of a series of inhibitions. Such a man has not decided to abstain; under diverse pressures, subjected to shocks and distortions, he can no longer (even if he wanted to) perform a political act. What is even more serious is that this inhibition not only is political, but also progressively takes over the whole of his being and leads to a general attitude of surrender…. At the same time, this crystallization closes his mind to all new ideas. The individual now has a set of prejudices and beliefs…. His entire personality now revolves around those elements. Every new idea will therefore be troublesome to his entire being.” In Comments on the Society of the Spectacle, Guy DeBord summed up the primary

Page 28

function of the mainstream media, “For what is communicated are orders; and with perfect harmony, those who give them are also those who tell us what they think of them.” For an even deeper understanding on how propaganda works, let’s return to Ellul: “Governmental propaganda suggests that public opinion demand this or that decision; it provokes the will of a people, who spontaneously say nothing. But, once evoked, formed, and crystallized on a point, that will becomes the people’s will. The government really acts on its own, it just gives the impression of obeying public opinion, after having first built that public opinion. The point is to make the masses demand of the government what the government has already decided to do.” They “amputate the argument” and replace it with “engineered consensus.” As Robert Lynd wrote in Democracy In Reverse, “They operate actually to confirm the citizen’s false sense of security in totaling up ‘what the majority think’… The false sense of the public’s being ‘boss’ that they encourage operates to narcotize public awareness of the seriousness of problems and of the drastic social changes many contemporary situations require.” In 1935, Malcolm Willey explained, “An individual may be moved to action through repetition, as, for example, in advertising; but his action is made more certain if he is made to realize that thousands, even millions, of others are thinking and feeling as he himself does. Herein lies the importance of the contemporary communication network; it not only carries its symbols to the individual, it also impresses upon him a sense of numbers.” James Madison also realized this when he wrote Public Opinion, “The larger a country, the less easy for its real opinion to be ascertained,

and the less difficult to be counterfeited.” That was written in 1791, when the US population was only about five million people. In 1901, Gabriel Tarde wrote, “Newspapers have transformed… unified in space and diversified in time the conversations of individuals, even those who do not read papers but who, talking to those who do, are forced to follow the groove of their borrowed thoughts. One pen suffices to set off a million tongues.” Bertrand Russell also hit at the root in Free Thought and Official Propaganda, when he said, “it is much easier than it used to be to spread misinformation, and, owing to democracy, the spread of misinformation is more important than in former times to the holders of power.” In Taking the Risk Out of Democracy, Alex Carey summed it all up in this one sentence: “That this simple regime of thought-control should prove to have been so triumphant, with so little public resistance, must be put down to its persistent, repetitive orchestration.” For all the discussion and focus on political and economic policy, what we really need to do on the individual level, first and foremost, is transcend conditioned consciousness. Once we do that, positive political and economic policy will be the natural byproduct and inevitable result.

Free Your Mind “You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it… Sooner or later you’re going to realize, just as I did, that there’s a difference between knowing the path, and walking the path. I’m trying to free your mind… But I can only show you the door. You’re the one that has to walk through it.” – The Matrix In revisiting the reactionary propagandized mind, when you confront a member of the consumer cult and expose their mental conditioning processes, the false reality and illusions that people are trapped in, they will instinctively dismiss or attack you. People will bite your hand when you try to remove the mental leash from their neck. In The Evolving Self, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi explains further, “To prevent its annihilation, the ego forces us to be constantly on the watch for anything that might threaten the symbols on which it relies for identity. Our view of the world becomes polarized into ‘good’ and ‘bad’ – things that support the image, and those that threaten it.” This is also how the third Mayan veil works. In the case of our media

www.organicacresmain.com Continued from previous page created cultural programming; it distorts reality to make it congruent with conditioned views. Anything that deviates from the conditioned norm is ridiculed and instantly, instinctively dismissed before critical thinking skills are activated. The repetitious conditioning process leads to an amputation of critical thinking faculties. That which people are not familiar with becomes odd, evil and damaging to their mental construct, to their thought patterns, to their fabricated self-image. For instance, we tend to look for anything that confirms our pre-existing beliefs while ignoring anything that goes against them. This is how confirmation bias works, to paraphrase Bertrand Russell: ‘If people are offered a fact which goes against their instincts or their cultural programming, they will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, they are offered something which falls in accordance to their cultural programming, in accordance to their conditioning, they will accept it, even on the slightest evidence.’ Having been bred within this all-pervasive propaganda system, I understand the disbelief people feel. When our conditioned belief system is called into question and comes crashing down, it is a hard pill to swallow. No one wants to believe that they have been taken advantage of, or have been manipulated. This will stir up an instinctive dismissal, a powerful emotional response. We are creatures of habit, and it is much easier, over the short-term, to just stay on a path of denial and ignorance. Hear no evil. See no evil. The task upon us is to consciously counter conditioned consciousness. The most difficult and important prerequisite to freedom is the ability to see past all of your culturally programmed biases. It takes great personal inner-strength and determination to achieve this; you will inevitably have to face many facts that will go against your programmed, conditioned beliefs. If one can endure this, one will eventually come to experience true freedom. However, even if one is strong enough to have an awareness of their conditioning, it is another level to confront and transcend it. As Nietzsche said, “Even the most courageous among us only rarely has the courage for that which they really know.” “Are you brave enough to see? Do you want to change it?” – Trent Reznor Noam Chomsky makes the ease in which

you can free your mind clear, and stresses the importance of doing so: “To take apart the system of illusions and deception which functions to prevent understanding of contemporary reality [is] not a task that requires extraordinary skill or understanding. It requires the kind of normal skepticism and willingness to apply one’s analytical skills that almost all people have and that they can exercise…. As long as some specialized class is in position of authority, it is going to set policy in the special interests that it serves, but the conditions of survival, let alone justice, require rational social planning in the interests of the community as a whole, and by now that means the global community. The question is whether privileged elite should dominate mass communication and should use this power as they tell us they must – namely to impose necessary illusions, to manipulate and deceive…. In this possibly terminal phase of human existence, democracy and freedom are more than values to be treasured; they may well be essential to survival.” Most Americans are aware of the fact that we are on a disastrous path. However, many of us feel powerless to change things. These feelings are only a result of our conditioning and induced delusion. We have become so propagandized that many of us do not realize the significant position that we are in. We are not poor people trapped in a third world existence. We are a mass of people who have the power to evolve society and change the course of history. It is stunning to hear all these people, so many people saying that they can’t do anything about it. Far too many people think that we can’t create change; that is why we don’t. Why do you think that we can’t change the world? How did you come to that conclusion? Who taught you to believe that? The overwhelming majority feels powerless to create political change. If they would just realize that they are the overwhelming majority, they would no longer feel this way. As Ellul said, “Only when he realizes his delusion will he experience the beginning of genuine freedom – in the act of realization itself – be it only from the effort to stand back and look squarely at the phenomenon and reduce it to raw fact.”

Cyberspace Underground Railroad

Time comes and times go… Thanks to the Internet, to the cyberspace underground railroad, people are now freeing their minds from conditioning and entrenched power censors. The Internet is to our generation what pamphlets were to our forefathers’ generation during the first American Revolution. People are going to the Internet to find out all the information that the corporate mainstream media is not letting people know about. As a result, we now have a critical mass of informed and outraged citizens who are also using the Internet to organize. They are now transcending conditioned consciousness and expanding their awareness on a scale unprecedented in human history. A new empowering collective consciousness, built on self-sufficient and aware individuals, is quickly evolving. As William Adams Brown said, “We are developing a social conscience, and situations which would have been accepted a generation ago as a matter of course are felt as an intolerable scandal.” John Dewey continues, “Liberty in the concrete signifies release from the impact of particular oppressive forces; emancipation from something once taken as a normal part of human life but now experienced as bondage…. Today, it signifies liberation from material insecurity and from the coercions and repressions that prevent multitudes from participation in the vast cultural resources that are at hand.” The inevitable demise of our current neofeudal system was summed up by George Orwell when he said, “For if leisure and security were enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings who are normally stupefied by poverty would become literate and would learn to think for themselves; and when once they had done this, they would sooner or later realize that the privileged minority had no function, and they would sweep it away. In the long run, a hierarchical society was only possible on a basis of poverty and ignorance.” If you are still wondering if we can truly create change, consider this simple truth from Strobe Talbott, “All countries are basically social

arrangements, accommodations to changing circumstances. No matter how permanent and even sacred they may seem at any one time, in fact they are all artificial and temporary.” Our government was created in the time of the horse and wagon. It took days or weeks to deliver one handwritten message across state lines. Today, we have instantaneous worldwide communication and an unprecedented amount of wealth in the most technologically advanced society. The masses are now connected and aware. It’s time to evolve our obsolete system. You know it, and so does everyone else who pays attention. We will soon have new ways of living that will make our modern age like look the Stone Age. People are throwing off their mental shackles and realizing their potential. A new renaissance and age of enlightenment has begun. Another world is happening. Humanity is rising. Emancipate Yourself From Mental Slavery NONE BUT OURSELVES CAN FREE OUR MINDS Transcend Conditioned Consciousness BREAK ON THROUGH… Enough writing from the Underground. It’s time to contrive to be born, to transform our world. We are building a decentralized global network of self-sustaining community incubators designed to maximize the transformative energy around us and facilitate the evolution of society.

Viva La Boobies!

Continued from page 2 It actually changes minute by minute, day to day, to provide exactly the right nourishment and immunities that a baby needs as determined by the breast through receiving information from

Page 30

the baby’s saliva on the areola. There are over 400+ identified nutrients in human breast milk, including probiotics and an abundant source of stem cells. The first milk that comes out is colostrum, which is rich with immune factors and is considered to be “liquid gold”, and extremely important for the life-long health of the baby. Breast-milk is also used by wise mamas for many purposes including putting on diaper rash, earaches, pink eye, sore throats, and many other healing needs. When a women breastfeeds the breast-milk bathes her milk ducts as it passes through to her baby, thus providing increased breast health and preventing breast cancer in direct relation to how long she nurses. Breasts are energy centres - Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete system of health that has been practiced for thousands of years, based upon the movement of energy through the body on the meridians (energy lines) and acupoints (nodes of energy on the meridians). There are six meridians that run through the breast area, and three of them are the Kidney, Liver, and Stomach meridians where most breast lumps and cancer develop. TCM treats breast cancer by addressing the energy stagnation and movement of qi. Acupuncture and TCM are holistic ways to promote breast health and can be used in combination with other health care treatments as well. Massaging the acupressure points along the meridians, or holding these energy points around the breasts, can help with promoting breast and whole body health and vitality. Underwire bras can also interfere with the energy moving through the meridians in the breasts, another

reason to let your boobs go free, or invest in a soft supportive natural fibre bra. Breasts are a lot like canaries - You’ve heard about the canary in the coal mine? Miners would take canaries down in the mines with them, because the birds were so sensitive that if the environment was toxic the canaries would die, and then the miners would know to get out of there immediately! Breasts are extremely sensitive, they receive information from the environment and their tissues collect toxins and hormones, like jet fuel and flame retardants. When breastfeeding, the saliva from the baby is absorbed into the areola and the breasts then immediately respond by providing the nutrients and immune factors that the baby needs based upon the breast’s incredibly sensitive receptors. Breast cancer is now the most common form of cancer for women in the US, and it’s not because breasts or our genes are the problem. Our breasts are the canaries letting us know that our environment is toxic and we must make changes in our health, diets, exposure, and detox. Due to the over 70,000 chemicals now used in the US over the last 100 years, we are living in a toxic soup and exposed to chemicals in our air, food, water, homes, cars, clothes, and more. Our breasts are letting us know that we need to create a healthy change for our longevity and the future generations. Breasts are beautiful - Your breasts are perfect for you. All kinds of breasts are beautiful. Breasts change in shape and size over life, and that’s okay. Whatever shape or size of your boobs is just right. Love your breasts! They have superpowers, they are intelligent, and they are amazing! In Mongolia, when a baby fusses, everyone lifts up their shirt and shakes their breasts for the baby, and the baby calms down and looks around amazed. Everyone laughs and smiles shaking their boobs, including mom, grandma, and grandpa too! So smile and love your boobs, they are awesome.
