8 We who engage in postulating solutions to the dominant issues of this time, use much energy speculating on unknown outcomes. But how much energy do we use in laying the ground for a future of our own making?

How much time do we give to devising the template for the new society we must create?

STEPS TO CONSTRUCTING THE NEW REALITY JULIAN ROSE - WAKING TIMES To bring a dream into reality is hard work: it’s a lifetime’s work at the very least. Yet many hold back from ever embarking – rationalizing that such a quest is a futile exercise that will surely be swamped by a reactionary and repressive status quo. Somehow, this failure to embark on the single most important mission of our lives, characterizes a great swath of sleepwalking humanity. But not only, also a significant percentage of supposed ‘spiritual aspirants’ who confuse the azure bubble in which they live with the stark reality of the new world which needs to be chiseled and honed into existence.

So here are a few suggestions about what can be done now, to ensure that life on Earth gets a better chance under our stewardship than under the present and past masters of control. Bring into consciousness a realistic vision of what your neighbourhood should look and be like in a positively transformed state. Note down on paper the basic ingredients necessary to bring about this positive change. Add to this mix anyone living in the area who you feel could make a positive contribution to this process.

Go back through your blueprint and allow your creative imagination to paint in some colourful innovative elements that will give movement to the plan. For example music, drama and seasonal celebrations. Check that the essential simple necessities are in place: local, ecological and integrated food production; fresh water availability; the resources for renewable heat and power generation; the existence/ planting of orchards; woodland areas for timber needs – and all other such similar needs that offer food and

“Those people who recognize that imagination is reality’s master we call ‘sages,’ and those who act upon it, we call ‘artists.’” - Tom Robbins

No guts, no glory. Pursuers of any great goal can tell you that. In the human psyche, from the moment a newborn baby emerges into the light of day, he/ she has a desire for magic. We are told this is an early fetish that fades away as the experience of the world sets in. As maturity evolves. As practical reality is better understood. In most areas of psychology, sensible adjustment to practical reality is a great prize to be won by the patient. It marks the passage from child to adult. It is hailed as a therapeutic triumph. In truth, the desire for magic never goes away, and the longer it is buried, the greater the price a person pays. A vaccine against a disease can mask the visible signs of that disease, but under the surface, the immune system may be carrying on a low-level chronic war against toxic elements of the vaccine. And the effects of the war can manifest in odd forms. So it is with the inoculation of reality aimed at suppressing magic. One of the byproducts of the “reality shot” is depression. The person feels cut off from the very feeling and urge he once considered a hallmark of life. Therefore, chronic sadness. And of course, one can explain that sadness in a variety of ways, none of which gets to the heart of the matter.

It is assumed that so-called primitive cultures placed magic front and center because they couldn’t do better. They couldn’t formulate a “true and rational” religion with a church and monks and collection plate and a European choir and an array of pedophiles. They couldn’t fathom what real science was. Their impulse for magic had to be defamed and reduced and discredited. Why? Obviously, because the Westerners who were poking through ancient cultures like demented professors had already discredited magic in themselves-they had put it on a dusty shelf in a room in a cellar beyond the reach of their own memory. But they couldn’t leave it alone. They had to keep worrying it, scratching it, and so they journeyed thousands of miles to find it somewhere elseand then they scoffed at it and tried to crush it. And we wonder why, under the banner of organized religion, there has been so much killing. At a deep level, the adherents k n o w they’ve s o l d their souls and they’re depressed, angry, resentful, remorseful, and they want to assuage and expiate their guilt through violence. But the urge for magic is forever.

And yet the charade goes on. While paying homage and lip service to ordinary practical reality seasoned with a bit of fairy-tale organized religion, people actually want to change reality, they want to reveal their latent paranormal power, they want to get outside reality, they want to create realities that, by conventional standards, are deemed impossible. They want to find and use their own magic. In our modern culture, we’re taught that everything is learned as a system. That, you could say, is the underlying assumption of education. It has farreaching consequences. It leads to the systematizing of the mind. The mind is shaped to accommodate this premise. “If I want to know something, I have to learn it. Somebody has to teach it to me. They will teach it as a system. I will learn the system. I will elevate the very notion of systems. Everything will be a system. In the long run, that’s a heavy loser. That’ll get you a lump of coal in a sock, a spiritual cardboard box to live in. As I reconstruct the legend of Merlin, one of my favorite guys, I put him in my sights as the one who taught himself magic by abandoning all systems. That was his genius. Don’t misunderstand. He didn’t turn himself into a blithering idiot. He just stepped outside systems. He went down roads based on his own naked desire to make magic. To modern man, this makes no sense. The intellectual enrolls at Harvard, he studies anthropology for six years, he flies to a jungle in South America, he digs up remnants of a lost culture, he infers they performed arcane ceremonies six times a week, he writes monographs-and he concludes they were a very picturesque

continued from page 5 society with fascinating customs and totems, and their brand of magic can best be understood as an inevitable consequence of their matriarchal organization, which itself was an accommodation to rainfall levels. The anthropologist takes two Paxil and goes off to teach a class on the meaning of ancient eyebrow trimming in Tierra Del Fuego. The rocket of real magic is still on the launching pad. It’s waiting. Systems are wonderful things. They produce results. They take us into technological triumphs. They help us become more rational. But when they are overdone, when the mind itself becomes shaped like a system, it reaches a dead-end. Then the

mind works against the unquenchable desire for magic. Then society is organized as a tighter and tighter system and turns into a madhouse. And then people say, “Maybe machines can actually think and choose and decide. Maybe machines are alive. What would happen if we grafted computers on to our brains? It might be wonderful.” People move in this direction after their own minds have been shaped, like putty, into systems. They don’t see much difference between themselves and machines. When you have a world run by a million machine-systems, you encounter horrific problems. One of those problems stems from the fact that each system gets things a little bit wrong, each system is skewed to one side just a little bit---and when you add up all these little wrong bits, you get a real threat to basic survival; the whole ship of civilization is tilting dangerously in the water. Far worse than that, the deep desire for magic in every individual is squelched. That’s the real problem. So the first order of business is the restoration of imagination, from which all magic flows. Imagination is sitting right there, always ready to go, waiting.

Page 6

Imagination is saying, “The mind has been shaped into a system? I can undo that. I can liberate the mind and make it into an adventurous vessel. I can provide untold amounts of new energy.” Life is waiting for imagination to revolutionize it down to its core. Since imagination is a wild card that technocrats can’t absorb in their systems, they pretend it a faculty produced by the action of atoms in the brain. They pretend it is a delusion that can be explained by demonstrating, for example, that a

machine can turn out paintings. Or poems. “You see? We don’t need humans to make art. Computers can do just as well. Imagination isn’t mysterious at all.”

Technocracy and transhumanism flow from the concept that the human being is just another machine. And any machine can be made to operate more efficiently. Of course, that operation must conform to overriding objectives that define what efficiency is geared for. Objectives like acceptance, surrender, group-integration. The result? Society is organized to eliminate all outliers and rebels. And many people believe that the system called civilization will give them security, protection. Hence, the willingness to go along with the Surveillance State. “Well, I don’t c o m m i t crimes, so I’m okay. The system won’t punish me. It’ll guard me against all those other people...” Meanwhile, imagination waits. It never vanishes. It stands by, just in case an individual decides to live a life that overflows with creative power. If my work has any organized precedent, it is ancient Tibet where, 1500 years ago, before the priests took over with their interminable spiritual baggage of ritual, practitioners engaged in exercises that engaged imagination to the hilt. The entire goal was revealing that the Universe was a product of mind.

This was not about ultimate worship. This was not about some deep substrate in the Universe that one could plug into, to guide his actions and thought. It was about liberating the individual from all systems. It was about endless creation. The first teachers of this Way came from India, where they had been pushed out of the academies of orthodox religious instruction. They were rebels. They had offloaded the metaphysical labyrinths of control. They were, in a sense, artists. Artists of reality. They were brilliant riverboat gamblers, and in Tibet, for a time, they found a home. They found students who, as now, were tired of the preaching designed to make humans into sophisticated mindmachines. These people wanted more. They wanted to awaken their own imaginations and exceed the illusory boundaries of space and time. They wanted magic. Despite every cynical ploy, that desire is still alive.

GOODLY CO. - HUMAN LIFE Answers to many modern day health complaints may be found in a couple of “dirty” substances that have been formed over millions of years on our planet. As plant matter decays under the influence of microorganisms along with the passage of time, it becomes the rich dark organic matter that we refer to as humic substances or soil. Rich in over 70 minerals and micronutrients, this ancient soil provides us with a nutrient dense healing wonder. Finding a place alongside the highly technical nano particled isolates of flora and fauna we sell today, the healing humic acids and fulvic acids are appearing on more of our store shelves all the time. We should pay attention and explore their profound potential in the realm of health and healing. Humic substances are made up of a few different fractions. One is the group known as humic acids and another is the fulvic acid group. These are very complex substances of organic acids. Humic acid is made of larger molecules, while fulvic acid is of much smaller molecular weight and size. Both play crucial roles in maintaining optimum growth and renewal of living cells. The complex nature of these two humates provides us with so many essential nutrients and minerals. How can these soil derivatives impact our health so profoundly? Let’s take a snapshot look at humic acid. Among its numerous attributes in helping us stay healthy, it lays claim to properties that are anti inflammatory, immune boosting and hormone balancing. It acts as an anti carcinogenic and powerful free radical scavenger. One of its great features is its broad spectrum ability to block viruses. By coating the receptor sites, the virus is unable to reattach to host cells and therefore the virus is not able to replicate withn the host organism. This holds such promise in the challenging race to keep up with the ever evolving deadly viruses that threaten our wellbeing today. Other current complaints such as fibromyalgia, asthma, autoimmune conditions and diabetes, to name a few, have responded to humic acid treatment. If we look at the smaller humate subset, fulvic acid, we find an equally impressive list of health giving properties. Being of smaller size and weight and also being water soluble, the moleclues of fulvic acid are able to penetrate more deeply into our cellular structure. Within the cell, they are able to remove heavy metals that are toxic to our life force, detoxing both metals and radioactive substances and other harmful toxins that challenge the cells viability. One of the heavy metals that we find commonly in people today is mercury. This deadly metal comes from several sources to take up residence in our bodies. Mercury fillings, vaccinations and toxic fish are some of the reasons we are burdened with mercury. In a study done at the University Of Calgary’s Faculty Of Medicine, there was graphic evidence of the damage rendered by mercury to brain neurons. Its devastating effect of altering the cell membrane structure of developing neurons was documented in a photographic video that left no doubt about its degenerating capabilities. With the present threat of widespread radiation, fulvic acid may be the gift we need to keep ourselves safe from the consequences of radiation exposure. Fulvic acid has the ability to repair DNA damage and regenerate dying and unhealthy cells. The rejuvenating capacity of fulvic acid is remakable. Beyond its scope to detoxify, it also allows greater nutrient transport across cell membranes, providing the body with restorative potential at the cellular level. This gives the mitochondria (our cellular energy furnaces) bio available nutrients to make more ATP (cellular energy) It facilitates rehydration and electrolyte balance in the organism, helping to establish

favourable pH levels. It also encourages immuno modulation. Fulvic acid is helpful for wound recovery, skin rashes and irritations as well as dealing with pathogens such as fungus that contribute to athlete’s foot and other stubborn conditions. In my research on this fascinating subject, I spoke to Joshua Flint of the Goodly Co. out of Oliver BC. This progressive company that started two years ago has opened up the marketplace to several innovative and effective products. The HumaLife product line has both humic acid and fulvic acid in its unique organic line. A passionate enthusiast for giving the world effective healing tools, Joshua explained the importance of the extraction technique used to maintain the active healing properties of these two organic acids. The Goodly Co. uses a special mechanical extraction that keeps the integrity and purity of the humic and fulvic acids which are sourced from ancient soil in Alberta. Nothing is removed or added in the process. He beams when he recounts some of the many stories of grateful people who have regained their health with the use of these and some other unusual and cutting edge supplements that the company produces. Years ago, Joshua met the widely known microbiologist and quantum physicist, Dr. George Merkl. In his association with Dr. Merkl, Joshua became familiar with a brilliant discovery of Dr Merkl’s. His research and inquisitive mind led him to find a way to extract ATP from food sourced material. ATP or adenosine triphosphate is the cellular energy fuel. When mitochondria are compromised, they are unable to provide enough ATP or fuel for our cells to use and we find the energy level of the organism declines. Many diseases have fatigue as a common symptom. If we are able to supply the body with ready made ATP, there is a return to a more energetic state. According to some studies, about 95% of the body’s energy is provided by ATP. Dr Merkl was able to extract from food, such as fruit and oolong tea, coffee and honey, a highly charged, ATP rich substance that he called....Life Crystals. These have the same tetrahedron like structure as life giving water. Joshua has continued on with the late Dr. Merkl’s technique using solar distillation to extract high vibrational ATP and GTP (guanosine phosphates) in a crystalline base of 5 carbon sugars. This super charged product can regenerate and regrow cells, repair DNA, decalcify the pineal gland, aid in thyroid function among other amazing things according to Joshua. There are healing aspects of these products that are still being discovered. Other products combine ATP and fulvic acid. This is the ATP and Elixir Formula and the Divine Vine Elixir. The added fulvic acid messages the mitochondria to make more ATP and acts as a nano carrier to allow the rejuvenating Life Crystals to be transported more easily into the cells. These are a powerful way to bring life back into the body. As Joshua said about the Divine Vine Elixir, “You don’t know where you have been til you come back.” We are so used to feeling less than optimum, that we don’t even remember what is possible. “So much goodness is trying to come to us” Joshua exclaims. He and his good minded company are excited to give us a chance to rekindle the life spirit through the ways of ancient vegetation and modern technology. I might mention that Joshua is inspired in his desire to help society and the world by means of open information and more available and efficient food growing methods for example.

Help Yourself Headlines Finance The Biggest Secret About Banking Has Just Gone Mainstream


his odd and counterintuitive, but crucially importan truth, has now gone mainstream. Specifically, the Financial Times’ Martin Wolf – one of the world’s most influential mainstream financial writers - says that, since banks create money out of thin air, they should be stripped of this power, and limited to normal depository functions. Wolf indicates the centrality and importance of the issue with his subtitle: The giant hole at the heart of our market economies needs to be plugged.

Chilean Activist Burns $500 Million of Student Loan Documents in Protest Against Debt Serfdom


rancisco Tapia, who is also known as “Papas Fritas”, claimed that he had “freed” the students by setting fire to the debt papers or “pagarés” In the five-minute video the artist and activist, translated by the Chilean news site Santiago Times, he passionately says: “You don’t have to pay another peso [of your student loan debt]. We have to lose our fear, our fear of being thought of as criminals because we’re poor. I am just like you, living a s**tty life, and I live it day by day — this is my act of love for you.” While his act of defiance will have brought smile to those now debt-free students, it will be difficult for the university to recoup the losses and the higher institution may have to individually sue students to get the get the debt repaid.

Spain’s ‘Robin Hood’ Takes from the Banks and Gives to the Disenfranchised


hey call him the Robin Hood of the banks, a man who took out dozens of loans worth almost half a million euros with no intention of ever paying them back. Instead, Enric Duran farmed the money out to projects that created and promoted alternatives to capitalism. The money, he said, had created opportunities. “It generated a movement that allowed us to push forward with the construction of alternatives. And it allowed us to build a powerful network that groups together these initiatives.”

Geo-Politics Conspiracy Theorists Vindicated: HAARP Confirmed Weather-manipulation Tool


n the YouTube below Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) asks some pointed questions about HAARP. However, readers may not be surprised at the answers, but the mainstream media ought to be wiping oodles of egg yolk from its collective face. In the report “Air Force Admits Weather Control via HAARP and New Tech,” David Walker, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Science, Technology and Engineering, very-matter-of-factly states that they took over from the Navy and will be moving on to managing the ionosphere, what the HAARP was really designed to do, to inject energy into the ionosphere to be able to actually control it… Furthermore, the U.S. Air Force intends to dismantle the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) in Gakona, Alaska, by or during the summer of 2014!

Latin America Strikes Back Against Imperialist Monsanto


he market with the biggest potential for growth, as far as corporate agriculture is concerned, is putting its foot down and saying no. Chile, Colombia and a growing number of other Latin American countries are taking a stand against Monsanto and its ilk by rejecting advancements to further convert their sustenance to the patented seed stocks owned by the biotechnology cabal, a move that could be a major game-changer on the GMO front.

Canada Decides Not to Allow Release of GM Alfalfa this Spring

Chemtrails – There’s No Debate: So Why Respond Like There Is?



oundup Ready alfalfa will not be available to Canadian growers this spring. Farmers from Ontario to Manitoba have decried the release of this genetically modified strain of alfalfa into agriculture, citing contamination problems. The National Farmers Union of Canada has brought forth valid concerns about the approval process for genetically modified crops. This is a huge turn of events in Canada, since the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) granted registration of the GM variety in 2013 and gave FGI exclusive rights to begin commercializing the seed in 2014. A trial of the genetically modified alfalfa was set to be released in the easternmost parts of Canada, as to not contaminate the natural alfalfa in the west, but FGI put a halt on the entire GM alfalfa endeavor in Canada.

here has been an explosion of high integrity media material available to truth seekers everywhere regarding the ongoing geoengineering disaster and chemtrail catastrophe. The number of videos and radio archives, articles and essays are now seemingly countless. Perhaps the best use of our time is to efficiently disseminate the evidence and testimony to those who do not yet know about the relentless chemtrail assaults. This would seems to be a much better use of our limited time and resources. With each new supporter of this cause, there is the increasing likelihood that the critical mass of individuals is soon reached necessary to produce the necessary change.

The Plan to Kill the Internet Uncovered


he Internet has emerged as the most empowering tool of individual freedom since the Gutenberg’s press, affording billions of people worldwide not only the tool of instant communication, but access to a wealth of liberating information, freedom from the chains of received consensus, and the opportunity to become their own media platform. This represents an ever increasing threat to the status quo of the elite, which is why the establishment is working feverishly to dismantle the freedom granted by the world wide web in its current form.

How To Kill A Drone: Since Drones Can Kill Americans, Americans Can Kill Drones, Here’s How


ince Barack Obama recently took it upon himself to label himself ‘dictator’ with free will to kill Americans with drones, isn’t it time that Americans learn how to fight back and kill drones? This excellent article informs people who are completely disgusted with the ‘Police State’ our once free nation has become on how to kill UAV’s. If UAV’s are going to be used to kill Americans, Americans need to learn how to fight back. Our GOD given right to defend our own lives is a much higher power than either Barack Obama or the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution. These monsters DESERVE to be grounded. Here’s how to do it!

Health Polish Study Says Vaccines have No Historical Benefits, Continue to Cause Neurological Damage

These are among the multiple inconvenient findings of a Polish research study that was published in the journal Progressive Health Sciences back in 2012, which exposes the fraud of vaccines by highlighting how their risks far outweigh any perceived benefits.

Bavaria Newest State to Join Large GMO-Free Network


here are approximately 60+ countries that have either some type of genetically modified food/ crop ban, restriction or labeling requirements. Did you know there is also a European network of GMO-free farming regions? Bavaria, also referred to as the Free State (or, considered a free state; republic), is the 62nd member to join this network. Environment Minister, Dr. Marcel Huber of Munich and pictured above, signed the instrument of accession on April 10th in Brussels, standing in solidarity with the President of the network, Maura Malaspina.” This is a bold, big move for Germany as Bavaria is its biggest state with a heavy population and capital city Munich. Neighboring state, Hesse, also recently applied to join the GMO-free network.

Science & Tech Open Source Plans for Modern Tesla Free Energy Generator Released to Public

New Renewable Energy Technology To Turn Seawater Into Fuel, Allowing Ships To Stay At Sea Longer

n March of 2014, a small group of independent engineers and developers released to the public open-source plans for a continuously running fuel-less electricity generator based on a patent by Nikola Tesla, and re-designed by inventor James Robitaille. Calling it the Quantum Energy Generator, or QEG, the portable device is supposedly capable of producing enough electricity to power a modern home, and is about the size and weight of a home gas generator..

fter decades of experiments, U.S. Navy scientists believe they may have solved one of the world’s great challenges: how to turn seawater into fuel. The development of a liquid hydrocarbon fuel could one day relieve the military’s dependence on oil-based fuels and is being heralded as a “game changer” because it could allow military ships to develop their own fuel and stay operational 100 percent of the time, rather than having to refuel at sea. The new fuel is initially expected to cost around $3 to $6 per gallon, according to the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, which has already flown a model aircraft on it.

fter visiting Ethiopia and seeing for himself how women and children are forced to walk miles every day for water, an Italian designer and cofounder of Architecture And Vision, became determined to create a solution that would be simple, create local jobs, and provide clean water in any of these mountainous villages. Named WarkaWater, for the traditional warka trees which are vanishing from the landscape there, towers made of bamboo and fabric were created to harvest potable water from the evening air. The towers, designed by Arturo Vittori’s VittoriLab, cost approximately $550 each, and can harvest 100 liters of water per day.

There has been enormous research interest in beets because of the the unusual mix of antioxidants that they contain. The unique combination of nutritional and nutriceutical components establishes the red beet as a marvelous vegetable, easy to grow and process its natural products. Its strong vasodilation properties, imparted pigments, flavonoids and organic nitrogen have lead to deep investigations by pharmaceutical companies to reap the enormous array of health benefits. Fortunately, a vegetable can’t be patented, so the beet will always remain as a very useful dietary tool in both the prevention and treatment of disease.

When it comes to antioxidant phytonutrients that give most red vegetables their distinct color, we’ve become accustomed to thinking about anthocyanins. (Red cabbage, for example, gets it wonderful red color primarily from anthocyanins.) Beets demonstrate their antioxidant uniqueness by getting their red color primarily from betalain antioxidant pigments (and not primarily from anthocyanins). Coupled with their status as a very good source of the antioxidant manganese and a good source of the antioxidant vitamin C, the unique phytonutrients in beets provide antioxidant support in a different way than

other antioxidant-rich vegetables. While research is largely in the early stage with respect to beet antioxidants and their special benefits for eye health and overall nerve tissue health, we expect to see study results showing these special benefits and recognizing beets as a standout vegetable in this area of antioxidant support. RESEARCHING EYE HEALTH Scientists have specifically investigated the pharmacology behind nitrates and how they produce nitric oxide in the body, including their effects on retinal microvasculature, meaning blood vessels in the eye. Although the research has been considered by pharmaceutical giants such as Pfizer and AstraZeneca, neither has developed drugs based on the findings likely because no conclusive data has ever been published linking beets to improved eye health. However, previous research has linked dietary nitrate supplementation with improved endothelial function in healthy humans (see here ). “Beets are so healthy for you that it got me researching how effective they would be at helping to restore vision,” said Dr. Edward Kondrot, who is also the president of the Arizona Homeopathic and Integrative Medical Association and the clinic director of Integrative Medicine of the American Medical College of Homeopathy.

“What I found is that they are a great natural source for improving eye health. A colorful diet will give colorful vision.” Indeed, beetroot is high in antioxidants and is an anti-inflammatory that can help to detoxify the body. But it is also among the richest source of dietary nitrates. “Beets have an extremely high concentration of nitrates, which have gotten a bad rap as a preservative,” Dr. Kondrot stated. “But they’re actually essential to producing nitric oxide in the body, which in turn helps open the body’s blood vessels, increase blood flow and oxygen, and allow more nutrients to fuel the body’s cells.” Though oft associated with enhancing sexual performance in men, Dr. Kondrot said his interest in nitric oxide pertains to its ability to strengthen corneal endothelial cells. “When it comes to eye disease, one of the biggest problems is vascular dysfunction, and anything we can do to improve the endothelium is good for the eyes.” Mouthwash, Antacids Can Deter Absorption of Nitrates One cup (200 grams) of beetroot contains about 500 mg of nitrate, which is typically the amount recommended daily to achieve the desired benefits. That’s roughly the equivalent of six beets, depending on the quality of the beet. Dr. Kondrot noted that improvements can be seen in as little as three months. A key piece of the body’s ability to convert nitrates

to nitric oxide is the role of digestive enzymes in the saliva and stomach. Although beets contain a little naturally occurring ascorbic acid (which aids in absorption), consumers who frequently use mouthwash or take antacids can actually destroy the enzymes needed for this conversion. “That’s probably a big contributor to deficiency of nitric oxide in American diets,” Dr. Kondrot said. “That’s also perhaps one of the reasons why drinking beet juice works so well, because it has a greater surface area to come in contact with during digestion.” It also may prove a suitable alternative for those less inclined to shovel in in six beets a day.

THE SPICE THAT PREVENTS FLUORIDE FROM DESTROYING YOUR BRAIN BY: SAYER JI - Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no-stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why new research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising! Fluoride’s neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From ‘conspiracy theories’ about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability to enhance the calcification of the pineal gland – the traditional ‘seat of the soul’ – many around the world, and increasingly in the heavily fluoridated regions of the United States, are starting to organize at the local and statewide level to oust this ubiquitous toxicant from municipal drinking water. Now, a new study published in the Pharmacognosy Magazine titled, “Curcumin attenuates neurotoxicity induced by fluoride: An in vivo evidence,” adds experimental support to the suspicion that fluoride is indeed a brain-damaging substance, also revealing that a natural spice-derived protective agent against the various health effects associated with this compound is available. The study was authored by researchers from the Department of Zoology, University College of Science, M.L. Sukhadia University, Udaipur, India, who have spent the past decade investigating the mechanisms through which fluoride induce severe neurodegenerative changes in the mammalian brain, particularly in cells of the hippocampus and cerebral cortex. The study opens by describing the historical backdrop for concern about fluoride’s significant and wide ranging toxicity: Fluoride is probably the first inorganic ion which drew attention of the scientific world for its toxic effects and now the F toxicity through drinking water is well-recognized as a global problem. Health effect reports on Fluoride exposure also include various cancers, adverse reproductive activities, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases. The study focused on fluoride induced neurotoxicity, identifying excitoxicity (stimulation of the neuron to the point of death) and oxidative stress as the two main drivers of neurodegeneration. It has been observed that subjects with the condition known as fluorosis, a mottling of tooth enamel caused by excessive exposure to fluoride during tooth development, also have neurodegenerative changes associated with a form of oxidative stress known as lipid peroxidation (rancidity). Excess lipid peroxidation in the brain can lead to a decrease in total brain phospholipid content. Owing to these well-known mechanisms of fluoride associated neurotoxicity and neurodegeneration, the researchers identified the primary polyphenol in the spice turmeric -- known as curcumin – as an ideal agent worth testing as a neuroprotective substance. Previous research on curcumin indicates that it is capable of acting as an

properties. From the perspective of the primary research alone, there are over two hundred peer-reviewed published studies indicating that curcumin is a neuroprotective agent. On our own turmeric database we have 115 articles proving this statement: Turmeric Protects The Brain. We have also featured studies on turmeric’s ability to protect and restore the brain: • How Turmeric Can Save the Aging Brain From Dementia and Premature Death • Turmeric Produces ‘Remarkable’ Recovery in Alzheimer’s Patients Considering the many chemical insults we face on a daily basis in the post-industrial world, turmeric may very well be the world’s most important herb, with over 600 evidence-based health applications. antioxidant in 3 distinct ways by protecting against: 1) singlet oxygen 2) hyrodxyl radicals

Science Confirms Turmeric As Effective As 14 Drugs

In order to assess the neurotoxic effects of fluoride and prove curcumin’s protective role against it, researchers randomly divided up mice into four groups, for 30 days: 1. Control (no fluoride) 2. Fluoride (120 ppm): fluoride was given in distilled water drinking water without restriction. 3. Fluoride (120 ppm/30 mg/kg body weight) + Curcumin: Oral dose of curcumin dissolved in olive oil along with fluoride in drinking water. 4. Curcumin: (30 mg/kg body weight) In order to ascertain the effect of treatment, the researchers measured the malondialdehyde (MDA) content in the brains of the different treated mice. MDA is a well-known marker of oxidative stress/ damage. As was expected, the fluoride only treatment group showed significantly elevated MDA levels vs. the non-fluoride treated control. The Fluoride + Curcumin group saw reduced MDA levels vs. the fluoride only group, demonstrating curcumin’s neuroprotective activity against fluoride associated neurotoxicity. The study concluded: Our study thus demonstrate that daily single dose of 120 ppm F result in highly significant increases in the LPO [lipid peroxidation, i.e. brain rancidity] as well as neurodegenerative changes in neuron cell bodies of selected hippocampal regions. Supplementation with curcumin significantly reduce the toxic effect of F to near normal level

AN IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS OF FLAWED VACCINATION SCIENCE Infectious diseases that the system insists have been mostly eradicated due to the advent of vaccines are starting to reemerge, with much of the blame for this being levied on the unvaccinated, who are automatically assumed to be the culprits. But a deeper look into the history of vaccines, how they work and what level of long-term protection they truly provide reveals that these golden calves of modern medicine are actually the vehicles through which infectious disease is being spread, with vaccinated individuals as the primary disease carriers. It is the opposite of what we have all been told for decades about the nature of vaccines -- that they produce immunity to diseases that might otherwise kill you, is one common claim, as is the assumption that refusing vaccines leaves one prone to both catching and spreading otherwise uncommon infectious diseases. These and other modern medical myths about vaccines pervade mainstream thinking, and yet they have absolutely no basis in sound science. In an extensive rebuttal to a 2012 article written by Forbes’ Steven Salzberg that blamed a whooping cough outbreak in the Northwest on unvaccinated children, Dr. Paul G. King, Ph.D., of FAME Systems deconstructs the popular misconception that infectious disease reemergence is the result of people not getting vaccinated. On the contrary, it is the vaccination schedule itself, which the federal government has been coercing people into complying with for nearly the entire last century, that is ultimately leading to and driving these outbreaks. “Salsberg is simply using a longstanding ‘straw man’ created long ago by his fellow vaccine apologists to divert the public’s attention from the reality that... the current pertussis vaccines are neither effective in providing those inoculated with them longterm protection from contracting whooping cough nor... cost effective,” explains Dr. King in his paper.

non-specific immunity, innate immunity is our bodies’ primary line of defense against all types of bacteria, toxins and other harmful invaders -- the gatekeeper, if you will, that protects the body’s adaptive immune system from having to face these intruders directly. Under ideal conditions, the innate immune system kicks into high gear at the first sign of a threat, blocking pathogens from getting past the nose, mouth, digestive tract or other bodily entry point. If for some reason the innate immune system fails at this task, the adaptive immune system picks up where it left off, adapting, as its name implies, to tackle the specific threat. But this natural immune response is thwarted by vaccines, which intentionally bypass the innate immune system and go straight for the adaptive immune system. The resultant immune response is both unnatural and completely out of order, generating only temporary and often incomplete im`munity as opposed to the lifelong immunity garnered from natural exposure. “Whereas natural recovery from many infectious diseases usually stimulates lifetime immunity, vaccines only provide temporary protection and most vaccines require ‘booster’ doses to extend vaccineinduced artificial immunity,” says Barbara Loe Fisher, president and co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center. The same is true for vaccines against pertussis, or w h o o p i n g which Dr. through his

cough, K i n g , extensive research, found only provide a few years of limited protection as opposed to a lifetime of full protection in unvaccinated individuals who contract the disease naturally. The former have to continually get booster shots to maintain their immunity, while the latter are essentially immune for life after contracting the disease once. “[A]t best, the current views are that

resulted in a clinical case of whooping cough caused by either B. pertussis or B. parapertussis.” In other words, unvaccinated individuals who contract mild whooping cough at a young age end up developing lifelong immunity to the disease without the need for a vaccine, and they also never become carriers of the disease. Vaccinated individuals, on the other hand, will never develop lifelong immunity, and will continually have to receive “booster” shots as protection, which the data shows is not always reliable or foolproof and can even lead to vaccine-induced health problems. “Unlike the natural disease which appears to confer lifelong immunity, present day pertussis vaccines confer only partial and relative transient protection,” wrote Drs. James W. Bass and Stephen R. Stephenson in a 1987 study entitled The return of pertussis. “A high degree of protection persists for 3 years, decreasing thereafter for 12 years after which little or no protection is evident.”

VACCINES AS CARRIERS OF DISEASE If subpar, temporary immunity was the only downside of getting vaccinated, it would be one thing. But the fact of the matter is that vaccinated individuals often end up becoming carriers of the diseases against which they were vaccinated, which is evident from decades of scientific data showing that the current vaccination schedule is directly responsible for bringing back all of these diseases that the media insists were eradicated by vaccines. “[T]he current DTaP/Tdap vaccination program in the USA is increasing the percentages of cases of whooping cough that are either caused by B. parapertussis or, as some are beginning to claim, caused by mutated strains of B. pertussis that evade the protective effects of multiple time-displaced inoculations with the current DTaP/Tdap vaccines,” explains Dr. King. “[V]accination with a ‘pertussis component’-containing vaccine produces some low level of ‘B. pertussis’ carriers [‘Pertussis Harrys’] who... can and do spread B. pertussis to others.”

each of these cases had already been “fully” vaccinated for the disease. Not surprisingly, health authorities have been quiet about this inconvenient truth, leading the public to erroneously assume that the unvaccinated are responsible. “[T]he reality is that more than 75% of the cases of whooping cough in outbreaks in Washington State since 2002 reportedly have been occurring in ‘fully’ vaccinated individuals, and this reality continues to be true in the 2012 ‘epidemic,’” adds Dr. King. “Further, the percentage in the current outbreaks that have a confirmed case of B. pertussis has not been disclosed -- nor is the percentage reported that have a confirmed case of B. parapertussis or another organism that can cause whooping cough.” For those already infected, Dr. King suggests supplementing with high doses of vitamin C, which he says eliminates the “whoop” and reduces the duration of the disease, as well as taking high doses of natural vitamin D3, which enables the body’s immune system to produce site-specific antibiotics to target whooping cough organisms in the respiratory system while protecting gastrointestinal flora, which would otherwise be destroyed by synthetic antibiotics.

Well, if you were the US Fraud and Death Administration, you would demonize it with all of your might, pretending that it was ineffective, dangerous and bad for the world. That way, drug sales and government medical control of life and death would not be endangered. You would get your buddies in other agencies, including the Justice Department, to criminalize the good stuff and legitimize the stuff your Big Pharma buddies hawk which actually IS ineffective, dangerous and bad for the world.

Of course the underground (internet, scuttlebutt, youtube) would have lots going on about it, but quality, reliability and availability would be serious problems for the Health Seeker (HS). That HS, struggling with cancer or Parkinson’s Disease or autism or chronic pain or depression or schizophrenia or anxiety or asthma or… that HS would be told that the One True Faith of the Church of the Great and Good God Pharma would punish him severely if he strayed and sought out the Holy Grail on his own: his insurance would not compensate him and he would be forced to the lowest Circle of Medical Hell: Out of Pocket Payment! But I believe I actually may have found the Holy Grail of Natural Medicine and it is legal, GMOfree, clean and powerful. It is, compared to the incredible prices of dangerous chemotherapy and drugs, pretty close to dirt cheap (but it may not feel like that since no insurance company with interlocking directorates with Big Pharma pays for this substance, creating the illusion that your treatment is just a co-payment away from free.

12,700 citations for “Cannabis” 13,009 for “hemp” 343 for “cannabis + cancer” 615 for “cannabis + pain” 2099 for “medical + marijuana”

The point is obvious.

Still, the FDA, usually so quick to invoke the rather loose and ill-defied “significant scientific agreement” standard, acts as if these studies from around the world never took place. Holy Mother Church of Pharma disowns them.

The Holy Grail of Natural Medicine has been found. It is High Potency Hemp Oil™ grown from selected varieties of Cannabis Sativa (the same species that produces marijuana) specifically selected and bred (through natural, not GMO methods) to have very low THCs (the get-youhigh compounds) and very high CBDs (the getyou-well compounds). And it is completely legal in the US and many other countries.

Hemp plants grown to produce oil or fiber are differentiated from marijuana in several ways and are called “Industrial hemp” to make it clear that they are not recreational drug plants. Although they are of the same species, Cannabis sativa, the genetics of the strains used for recreation and for medicine and the way in which they are cultivated genetics and the way they are cultivated “are as different as a Chihuahua and a Great Dane. Cannabis plants grown for marijuana are bred for high THC and given enough space to branch out so they can produce buds. Cannabis plants grown for hemp have much lower THC and are packed densely—typically 35 to 50 per square foot—because the stalks are the most valuable part. “ When marijuana is smoked, the psychoactive compounds called Tetrahydrocannabinaols of THCs are activated and the other 79 or so cannabinoids go up in smoke, literally.

When the oil from low THC/high CBD cultivars is consumed, applied to the skin, inhaled or otherwise taken into the body, those other cannabinoids are ready to do their work. And they do work.

Let me be clear: I do not worship at the Altar of Big Pharma, having practiced drug-free medicine and psychiatry for nearly 44 years, since my graduation from Medical School in 1970. But I never used or recommended high CBD hemp because of the legal issues. I simply was not willing to risk the legal consequences for my patients – or for myself.

Hemp has been illegal to grow in the US since 1933, creating a sort of legislative Reefer Madness, despite the fact that it has been cultivated for at last 9,000 years for fiber, food and remedy. And although legislation has recently been proposed to amend the hemp-hostile laws, growing it remains legal in several states but illegal at the Federal level. Hemp oil as a treatment for cancer and a host of other diseases and conditions was largely popularized by the efforts of Canadian Rick Simpson who cured his own cancer and tried to share the wonders of his discovery without seeking a patent or other compensation. Although hemp can legally be grown in Canada under strict controls (e.g., farmers must obtain only permitted low THC seed), hemp oil is not a legal substance

and Simpson found himself eye-to-eye with the might of the Canadian government. He migrated to Europe where he could pursue his miracle. I had long known about:

• Nutritional hemp oil with great health benefits as a healthy oil (no THCs and no CBDs)

• Hemp protein powder, which is a great addition to many diets (ditto: no THCs and no CBD) • Hemp oils with variable percentages of both THCs and CBDs).

But these are not therapeutic hemp products. They are nutitional and have great nutritional characteristics but there was no way I would advise a seriously ill patient to use something with a known low concentration of CBDs and possibly an illegal concentration of THCs. Then the Holy Grail showed up.

A nutritionist friend of the Natural Solutions Foundation told me about a new Affiliate Program which is going to offer hemp oil products made with high concentration of CBDs. They currently have lower concentration CBD products. But if you have cancer, intractable epilepsy, unremitting and brutal pain, waiting until someone’s business model says it is time to provide a product you need is simply not an option. So I went looking for hemp oil once I learned that it was legal. Knowing I was on the hunt, an associate called to tell me that a company was making high quality, high CBD hemp oil from non GMO, European grown industrial hemp and provide me with the data on the company. I called them immediately. And I discovered that it is possible to provide a LEGAL range of LEGAL High Potency CBD Hemp Oil Products available NOW.

That means that seriously ill people, including my patients in the US (but NOT Canada), in Chile (but not New Zealand) can have 22% CBD hemp oil, or 15.5% decarboxylated CBD hemp oil (which some say is more effective in cancer situations), or capsules with a full 25mg of CBD or 25% CBD chewing gum (a great delivery system, by the way). Remember, these products have no THC and cannot make you “high.”

You have just made a decision that can save your life but runs the risk of getting you excommunicated from the Holy Mother Church of Big Pharma. You will be outside the safe, shiny, white robed sanctuary of Doctor Knows Best, Put Your Faith in Pharma sacraments and you may have to Go It Alone, Paying Your Way.

well as the occurrence of the disease only after the 1990s…

The public’s appreciation of the toxicity of glyphosate— the active ingredient in Monsanto’s broad-spectrum herbicide Roundup—is still limited, despite highly damning research being published.

Although glyphosate alone does not cause an epidemic of chronic kidney disease, it seems to have acquired the ability to destroy the renal tissues of thousands of farmers when it forms complexes with a localized geo-environmental factor (hardness) and nephrotoxic metals.”

The fact that Monsanto marketed Roundup as “environmentally friendly” and “biodegradable” probably has a lot to do with this general lack of insight.


More people are apt to remember the Roundup commercial than recall the fact that Monsanto was twice found guilty of false advertising of this herbicide. In 2009, a French court again upheld these earlier convictions. Mounting evidence shows that glyphosate is FAR more toxic than anyone previously suspected, both alone and in combination with other additives (as in the case of Roundup), or in combination with other agricultural chemicals and/or heavy metals. Dr. Donald Huber, one of the premier plant pathologists in the US, views it far more toxic than DDT. They are spraying nearly ONE BILLION pounds every year on our food crops. That is enough glyphosate to fill 4,000 Olympic sized swimming pools. Most recently, what’s being referred to as “an epidemic” of chronic kidney disease—a mysterious form of toxic nephropathy—striking down farmers in Sri Lanka, India, and Central America’s Pacific coastline (El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica), has now been traced back to Roundup in combination with contaminated fertilizer. As reported by Lanka Business Online: “Chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology (CKDu) first appeared in Sri Lanka’s rice growing areas in the north central province in the 1990s and has been spreading into other areas including the South, with over 20,000 estimated deaths so far.” According to estimates by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), some 20,000 American farm workers are also being poisoned on the job each year. LETHAL KIDNEY DISEASE LINKED TO ROUNDUP AND PHOSPHATE FERTILIZER COMBO According to a recent study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, glyphosate may carry heavy metals and minerals, whether naturally-occurring or originating from agricultural chemicals, into your kidneys, courtesy of its chelating properties. A unique feature of this kidney disease (chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology/CKDu) is that none of the commonly known risk factors apply, such as diabetes or hypertension, but there’s a strong association between this mysterious kidney disease and consumption of hard water, i.e. water that contains higher amounts of calcium, magnesium, strontium, and iron. Ninety-six percent of patients with chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology had consumed hard or very hard water for at least five years. Meanwhile, the disease is not found among those who get their drinking water straight from natural springs. Kidney toxicity is not known to be associated with hard water consumption, and this surprising finding added to the initial mystery. Furthermore, the disease seemed to have cropped out of nowhere. There were no reported cases of this kind of kidney disease in Sri Lanka prior to the 1990s. The researchers note that the original use of glyphosate was as a de-scaling agent, used to clean out calcium and other mineral deposits in hot water systems. Descaling agents attach to minerals such as calcium and magnesium, rendering them water soluble. According to the authors: “[T]he totality of scientific evidence gathered so far has highlighted the fact that an unknown factor (Compound X) originating from agrochemicals, when combined with hardness/Ca/Mg can cause significant kidney damage; thus explaining many current observations including the unique geographical distribution of the disease. If we assume that the ‘Compound X’ is derived from the agrochemicals and is easily bound to Ca/Mg/Sr/Fe to ultimately cause damage to the kidneys, then this hypothesis can explain the geographical distribution of chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology (CKDu) as

Arsenic also plays a role. Previous research has shown victims of chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology have arsenic in their hair and nails, and arsenic along with heavy metals such as cadmium, chromium, nickel, and lead are also found in the triple-super-phosphate (TSP) fertilizer used by Sri Lankan farmers. Triple superphosphate (TSP), also known as calcium dihydrogen phosphate and as monocalcium phosphate, became widely used in the 20th cen­tury. In Sri Lanka, it’s applied within a couple of weeks of spraying the rice fields with glyphosate. According to the featured study, Sri Lankan farmers do not use protective gear when applying agricultural chemicals, which would explain why glyphosate has been found in farmers’ urine post-application. The matter may be further compounded by the fact that: The affected farmers dissolve the glyphosate in hard water before spraying. They eat rice contaminated with glyphosate and heavy metals. Many chew locally grown tobacco, which has also been found to be contaminated with cadmium and arsenic. “The phosphorus atom in the phosphonic group in the glyphosate/AMPA molecule can possibly be replaced by As (Arsenic). Following dermal and respiratory absorption of glyphosate, it can form complexes with nephrotoxic metals and arsenic derived from rice, vegetables and tobacco within the circulation,” the researchers say. CHEMICAL AGRICULTURE HAS REPLACED SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE AROUND THE GLOBE Chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology has also become commonplace among Central American sugarcane farmers. The two crops, rice and sugarcane, both require higher amounts of agricultural chemicals when grown on a large scale, and glyphosate is the most widely used pesticide in areas affected by this chronic kidney disease.

Shockingly, considering its majestic natural beauty, the island country of Sri Lanka has some of the highest use of agricultural chemicals in the world! “The Island newspaper… quoted WHO/UN data which said Sri Lanka used 471 units of agro-chemicals, the highest in the world, made up of 187 Units of pesticides, which was also the highest in the world and 284 units of fertilizer, which was the 8th highest in the world. Others were; Bangladesh (431U), Jamaica (397U), Dominican Republic (358U), Costa Rica (357U) and El Salvador (355U)… The state also subsidizes chemical fertilizer in an unprecedented scale.” THE MANY HEALTH HAZARDS OF GLYPHOSATE It seems quite clear that we’ve radically altered our farming methods, embracing the “marvels” of chemical agriculture, without having a clear understanding of what all of these products actually do, alone and in combination, beyond their obvious benefits of killing pests. It appears as though, longterm, certain chemicals such as glyphosate also have the ability to kill the human population, along with other portions of the natural world. Glyphosate is actually, in many ways, similar to DDT, which is now known to cause reproductive problems and birth defects among other things. The most recent research into DDT effects found that exposure appears to increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, decades later. This is undoubtedly unwelcome news to those who, in their youth, used to run out and frolic in the fumes from the DDT truck! Remember, DDT was advertised as completely harmless, and sold to an unsuspecting public with catchy slogans like “DDT is Good for Me-e-e!” Heck, they even sold DDT-laced wallpaper specifically designed for children’s rooms! And it was “certified to be absolutely safe for home use.” Today, we have glyphosate which, just like DDT, has been falsely advertised, and falsely ”certified” and “guaranteed” as safe. Besides being identified as a likely causative factor in fertility problems and birth defects, research also shows that glyphosate: •

Decimates beneficial microorganisms in the soil essential for proper plant function and high quality nutrition

Causes extreme disruption of your gut microbes’ function and lifecycle; preferentially affecting beneficial bacteria, while promoting the growth of pathogens in your intestines


Chelates critical microminerals, preventing them from being utilized by the plant (leading to nutrientdeficient food)

Inhibits enzymes that catalyze the oxidation of organic substances, which appears to be an overlooked component of glyphosate’s toxicity to mammals. By limiting the ability of these enzymes to detoxify foreign chemical compounds, glyphosate enhances the damaging effects of those chemicals and environmental toxins you may be exposed to

Promotes the proliferation of disease-causing pathogens in soil

Is toxic to water fleas at extraordinarily low levels, well within the levels expected to be found in the environment. These findings throw serious doubt on glyphosate’s safety

Predisposes cattle to lethal botulism

Is toxic to human DNA even when diluted to concentrations 450-fold lower than used in agricultural applications

OTHER HIDDEN HEALTH HAZARDS ASSOCIATED WITH PHOSPHATE FERTILIZERS Polonium-210 is a highly radioactive element that releases alpha particles as it decays. It’s also chemically toxic. While alpha particles cannot penetrate deeply into your body, they can cause serious damage to cells they do come into contact with. While naturally present in small amounts in the environment, one of the primary sources of exposure is via calcium phosphate fertilizers, commonly used on tobacco fields and food crops. Researchers have gone so far as to suggest that it’s the radiation from these fertilizers that are the primary cause of cancer in smokers. According to a report in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research, radioactivity in tobacco comes from two sources: the atmosphere and uptake through soil rich in calcium phosphate fertilizer contaminated with polonium phosphates. You can also consume polonium by drinking fluoridated water, courtesy of the fluorosilicic acid used. This chemical byproduct, created during the phosphate fertilizer manufacturing process, is what is typically used to fluoridate municipal water supplies. Uranium and radium are two known carcinogens found in fluorosilicic acid used for water fluoridation, and polonium-210 is one of two decay products of uranium. Furthermore, polonium decays into stable lead-206, which also has significant health risks—especially in children—and research has indeed shown that drinking fluoridated water increases lead absorption in your body. PHOSPHATE FERTILIZERS ALSO USED IN GMO AGRICULTURE

(GMA), is working hand-in-hand with the chemical technology industry to force this food model on the world, with tax payers subsidizing the very food that will promotes disease and wreaks havoc on the environment. The GMA is spearheading the efforts of these industries to prevent you from knowing the truth about what you’re really eating, and control the food system at virtually any cost, it seems. GREATEST PURVEYORS OF DISEASE FIGHT TO MAINTAIN CONTROL OF THE FOOD SYSTEM As you may recall, during last year’s I-522 ballot campaign to label GMOs in Washington State, the GMA came up with an ingenious, and illegal, money laundering scheme to protect the identity of members who donated funds to the opposing campaign. This illegal move helped them defeat I-522 by a mere one percent margin. The scheme fell apart however, and the GMA was sued by Attorney General Bob Ferguson, who accused them of intentional money laundering and violating state campaign disclosure laws. As a result, the identities of the companies paying to defeat I-522 were released. Not surprisingly it contained the usual suspects: Pepsi, Coke, General Mills and Nestle – all primary purveyors of chronic disease. But that’s not the end of the story. On January 13, the Washington State Office of the Attorney General announced that the GMA has countersued the state, challenging its campaign finance laws. Essentially, the Association is suing for the right to hide corporate campaign funds—a move that threatens the transparency of the state’s elections on every issue! What’s more, the GMA has also filed a civil rights complaint against the Attorney General himself, claiming that he acted unconstitutionally when he enforced the state’s laws! It would be laughable if it wasn’t so serious. This is bullying at its finest. As recently reported by “If you don’t live in Washington state and are wondering why you should care, A. Bryan Enders, associate professor of agricultural law at the University of Illinois, has food for thought. ’This is part of a larger narrative involving increased consumer awareness,’ he says. ‘The GMA countersuit can be viewed as not pro- or anti-consumer but about maintaining control over the messaging of our food system. As various states respond to consumer demand for heightened food labels, this shifts control away from GMA and its members and places it within the hands of diffuse consumer interests.’ The latest countersuit isn’t GMA’s only stick in the fire. According to Reuters, the trade group is working with a coalition including biotech crop developers and unnamed lawmakers to introduce federal GMO labeling legislation—legislation that would have the power to nullify individual state laws, a tactic public health lawyer Michele Simon spoke with us about in September. ‘The devil is in the

details,’ Simon said. ‘Industry will agree to federal labeling, but in exchange, they say, ‘we want to preempt or stop any states from going further.’” BIOLOGICAL FARMING IS THE WAY OUT OF THIS MESS Last year, I interviewed Dr. Elaine Ingham, an internationally recognized expert on the benefits of sustainable soil science. According to Dr. Ingham and other soil experts, a key component of successful agriculture lies in having the right helper organisms in the soil; beneficial species of bacteria, fungi, protozoa, beneficial nematodes (not the weedfeeders), microarthropods, and earthworms—all of which contribute to plant growth in a number of different ways. Nutrient cycling is another major issue. Dr. Ingham believes the concept that your soil is deficient and needs added phosphorus or nitrogen, etc. in order to grow plants is seriously flawed, and largely orchestrated by the chemical companies, because it’s based on looking at the soluble, inorganic nutrients that are partly present in your soil. The real nutrition plants require is actually derived from microorganisms in the soil. These organisms take the mineral material in the soil and convert it into a plant-available form. Without these bioorganisms, plants cannot get the nutrients they need. So what you need is not more chemical soil additives, what you need is the proper balance of beneficial soil organisms. You can actually use a starter culture to boost the fermentation and generation of beneficial bacteria much in the same way you can boost the probiotics in your fermented vegetables. For compost, this strategy is used if you want to compost very rapidly. In that case, you can use a starter to inoculate the specific sets of organisms for your garden’s particular needs. Dr. Ingham has written several books on this topic, including The Field Guide for Actively Aerated Compost Tea, and The Compost Tea Brewing Manual. You can also greatly enhance the benefits of compost or compost tea by adding biochar, as it serves as residence where the bacteria can live and thrive; otherwise they tend to die out relatively rapidly after adding them to the soil. EAT WELL AND HELP SAVE FARMERS BY SUPPORTING SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE With everything we now know about the benefits of organically grown foods, and the health and environmental hazards of chemical farming, there’s no doubt that HOW your food is grown is of utmost importance to your health. This is why I encourage you to support small family farms, and to buy organic whenever possible. Another alternative is to grow some of your own vegetables. Sprouts are an excellent choice if you’re just getting started, or if you want to grow the most nutritious food for the least amount of time and money. Frequenting farmer’s markets and joining a community-supported agriculture program are other options. Below are several resources to obtain wholesome food that supports not only you but also the environment and the farmers who grow your food.

Phosphate fertilizers are also used on food crops. And while food-borne polonium may be absorbed and react differently in your body than being inhaled, you could potentially be exposed to greater levels of this (and other) radioactive elements than previously thought, through the aggressive use of phosphate fertilizers in food production. Besides the risk of radioactive contamination, research has shown that dietary calcium phosphate has a detrimental effect on your gut health—an effect shared by glyphosate, which also decimates your gut flora. According to a 2002 study in the Journal of Nutrition: “Most Gram-positive bacteria are susceptible to the bactericidal action of fatty acids and bile acids. Because dietary calcium phosphate (CaP(i)) lowers the intestinal concentration of these antimicrobial agents, high CaP(i) intake may enhance intestinal colonization of Grampositive pathogens and the subsequent pathogenesis.” Taken together, modern agricultural methods may at first glance appear to be the most cost effective and efficient strategy, but it quickly becomes one of the most costly ways to produce food once you take into account the environmental and human health consequences. Moreover, processed food manufacturers, represented by the Grocery Manufacturers Association of America

It Doesn’t Take Much Sugar for It to Wreak Havoc on Your Body AlterNet - By Jill Richardson Nicolette Hahn Niman, author of Righteous Porkchop, just coined a new catchphrase that ought to go viral: “Sugar is NOT just an empty calorie.” Her statement contradicts the notion we’ve had for years that the worst thing about sugar is its lack of nutrients. Either you’re eating sugar in addition to all of the calories you need to stay healthy, or you’re eating it instead of them. In the former case, you’re getting too many calories; in the latter, you’re getting too few nutrients. This idea is so dominant it was recently cited in an antisugar op-ed in the Guardian. Even if that was the case, we’re eating too much sugar. Or, more specifically, too much added sugar. Sugars that are naturally present in whole foods like fruit are okay; it’s the sugar added to whole foods that we must worry about. Previously, the World Health Organization said we should limit consumption of added sugars to 10 percent of calories. Even then, more than seven in 10 Americans ate too much sugar. On average, about 15 percent of our calories came from added sugars. But now WHO is considering cutting its recommendation in half. That means limiting sugar consumption to five teaspoons, the amount found in half a can of soda. The American Heart Association has long recommended that women limit added sugars to six teaspoons and men stick with nine or less. (For those looking for a loophole, this means all added sugars, including socalled healthier sweeteners like maple syrup, agave, honey, or even fruit juice.) Niman was examining the health impacts of sugar at the same time as WHO. In researching and writing her latest book, she dug into studies that found evidence sugar does more than just lack nutrients. “The sugar is going to actually damage your body. It’s not just that you’re not going to get the nutrients,” she said. The link between sugar and disease is not a new one. Decades ago, nutrition professor John Yudkin wrote a book called Pure, White, and Deadly in which he posited that sugar was the culprit behind heart disease and type 2 diabetes. The food industry fought back. This was the era of lowfat, not low sugar. (In his book, Yudkin even quotes a sugar industry advertisement claiming that sugar makes you thin. Go figure that out.)

The general term “sugar” can mean any number of things. Table sugar, or sucrose, is composed of a glucose molecule bonded to a fructose molecule. Glucose is what plants make during photosynthesis and it’s half as sweet as table sugar. Fructose, naturally found in honey and many fruits, is 70 percent sweeter than table sugar. On your tongue, you taste a difference in sweetness between glucose and fructose. Once in your body, the difference continues. Glucose is metabolized by every cell in your body. After you eat, your blood glucose levels rise, and your body releases insulin. The insulin helps your muscles, fat and liver absorb the glucose, decreasing your blood sugar. Levels of another hormone, leptin, also rise. Leptin regulates your appetite; once you’ve eaten and your body has plenty of fuel to keep going, leptin tells you to stop. Another hormone, ghrelin, decreases. Ghrelin stimulates your appetite, and after you’ve eaten, it’s already done its job. Fructose, on the other hand, is only metabolized by your liver. The title of a 2004 study says it all: “Dietary fructose reduces circulating insulin and leptin, attenuates postprandial suppression of ghrelin, and increases triglycerides in women.” In other words, after you eat fructose, your body never gets the message, “You’ve eaten enough, now stop.” As for those increased triglycerides, well… another word for triglyceride is “fat.” In scientist-speak, “Compared with glucose, the hepatic metabolism of fructose favors lipogenesis, which may contribute to hyperlipidemia and obesity.” Translated, that says when fructose is metabolized in your liver, it is often converted to fat. These facts about fructose are often cited in arguments against high-fructose corn syrup, but remember that sucrose, honey and even apple juice contain lots of fructose too. One consequence of overdoing it on sweets is called “metabolic syndrome.” That’s a medical term for a number of risk factors for heart disease, diabetes and stroke: a large waistline, bad cholesterol, high blood pressure, and high fasting blood sugar. In fact, fructose and sucrose are such reliable causes of metabolic syndrome that scientific papers often use

the terms “fructose-induced metabolic syndrome” or “sucrose-induced metabolic syndrome.” Some scientists add other evils to the list, including kidney disease and stroke. A 2010 study found that “Fructose feeding has now been shown to alter gene expression patterns… alter satiety factors in the brain, increase inflammation… and induce leptin resistance.” If that sounds so bad that you decide to switch your sweetener to pure glucose (sold under the name corn syrup, and not the high-fructose variety), keep in mind that an influx of glucose into your body spikes your blood sugar, followed by a crash. This is especially true when the sugar comes in liquid form. Your body also breaks down complex carbohydrates like whole grains into glucose, but then the glucose is released more slowly into your bloodstream. In 2013, scientists found that lower blood sugar may even improve memory. All in all, one report estimates “30%-40% of healthcare expenditures in the USA go to help address issues that are closely tied to the excess consumption of sugar.” The sad truth is that there’s no free lunch. Even when you eat “sugar-free” cake sweetened with honey or fruit juice, it’s all sugar to your body. (However, raw unprocessed honey provides some health benefits, whereas refined sugars do not.) For an experiment, go a day with only six teaspoons of sugar (25g) if you’re a woman, or nine teaspoons (38g) if you’re a man. Don’t forget to check foods you wouldn’t expect for hidden sugars, like bread, salad dressing, pasta sauce, and ketchup. Suddenly, the amount of sugar we eat in our normal diets becomes staggering. Longer term, if a complete sugar makeover sounds unimaginable to you, start by cutting out sugary drinks, including fruit juice. You might want to skip the diet sodas too, since research shows they can be even worse than the “real thing.” If your heart is palpitating with dread at the very thought of giving up sugar, you’ve arrived at one of the reasons why we eat so darn much of it. Some say it’s addictive, and a 2007 study found it gives your brain a reward even greater than that of cocaine. In his book The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite, former FDA commissioner David Kessler examined what drives wanting in food. “Liking is pleasure but wanting is an urge to it,” he explains. “I need it, I need it to make me feel better. We looked in animals to see what was the most reinforcing. Was it the sweetness? Was it the fat? Was it the flavor? We found that sweetness drives wanting more than anything else. It drives—if you look at animals or people— how much effort they’ll expend for it. How hard they will work for it.” You’ve heard the old adage, “A moment on your lips, a lifetime on your hips.” The pleasure gained from food is so fleeting. If I eat a cookie now, I will experience a few moments of pleasure, and then no more. I can extend that pleasure briefly by eating a second cookie. And then it’s gone. To keep feeling that pleasure, I would have to keep eating cookies—at least until I feel

sick from eating too many. Yet many of us are more than willing to continue jamming cookies down our throats even if we want to be healthy and we know that cookies are not health food, for the ephemeral bliss they provide. “We know that sweetness can increase the pleasure centers of the brain, the opioid centers,” Kessler continues. “We know it can serve as a mild pain relief… I’m eating something that is sweet—it can change how I feel. So it’s salient. It is powerful. It’s directly hard-wired from our sensory receptors in our mouth to our brain. You don’t even have to go through the bloodstream. It’s a very powerful molecule because it’s directly wired to our brain. And it can drive want.” He adds that, “Sweetness isn’t the only driver of wanting. Add fat to that, it becomes more powerful. Add color, add texture, add temperature, add mouthfeel. Kids’ candies are just very simple, but as you get older you want more levels of stimulation. But at the core of most foods that are hard to resist there is sweetness. Now a lot of that has to do with past learning and past memory. It’s not always sweetness, depending on your past learning—but there’s no doubt that sweetness is driving.” Kessler goes into even greater detail in his book. He looks at the impact of priming, when a single taste of a food triggers what he calls “conditioned hypereating.” He points out how the food industry taunts us, “Bet you can’t eat just one.” Sadly, that is probably true. Even if you’re not particularly hungry, after a friend convinces you to have “just a taste” of ice cream, you’re more likely to order an entire cone. Why do you think Whole Foods is so generous at giving you free samples of its cakes and gelato? Kessler, and later Michael Moss (in his book Salt Sugar Fat) examine how the food industry capitalizes on our hardwired drive for sugar (and salt and fat). Moss details food manufacturers’ efforts to improve their products nutritionally without sacrificing flavor (or sales) or increasing price. Sometimes, a healthier but higher priced substitute, like an herb, could compensate for salt, sugar and fat. More often, when the manufacturers reduce one of those three elements, they compensate by boosting one or both of the other two. In response to her research, Nicolette Hahn Niman almost entirely gave up sugar. She limits herself to a few squares of dark chocolate each day, and she reports that she’s kicked her sugar habit, and the cravings that would make her fall back to it. Eschewing sugar is not impossible, particularly after the initial cravings go away, but it can be difficult in our society unless you cook all of your own food. Even then, it can come off as socially gauche when you’re dining with friends or co-workers and you’re the only one who isn’t gushing over the triple chocolate mousse cake someone brought to the party. That said, there are other flavors out there, including salty, bitter, spicy, sour, and umami. Perhaps we North Americans would do well to explore them. OtherWords columnist Jill Richardson is the author of “Recipe for America: Why Our Food System Is Broken and What We Can Do to Fix It.”



associated with things like the steam engine where the public good was often sacrificed to individual and corporate profits. In the early nineteen twenties, US patent law was revised to favor corporate interests. In 1930, the U.S. began to allow patents for living organisms with the Plant Patent Act. The Motion Picture Association of America, as it emerged, took a hard line on intellectual property and fought for broad protections. As new industries like biotechnology and nanotechnology popped up, companies and individuals sought additional protections for technology. The growth of the Internet set off a yet another wave of intellectual property rights related to patents and copyrights. Today, what we have is a giant mess, a system plagued by bad actors and bad faith that has often become a means for corporations to smash competition and block human progress rather than advance knowledge. More time and energy is spent by companies coming up with new ways to sue each other than coming up with new ideas (think: Apple v. Samsung). The public purse is picked as taxpayer-funded investments in research are appropriated by profit-making companies. Our patent system fuels inequality by socializing the risk associated with research and discoveries while privatizing the gains. Meanwhile lawyers, as you might expect, are making out like bandits.

properties of the drugs were discovered. In 2013, Botox generated nearly $2 billion in revenues for Allergan, of which 54 percent were for therapeutic uses that your doctor prescribes and 46 percent were for the cosmetic uses that the company advertises.

3. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS CAN BLOCK INNOVATION One of the biggest arguments in favour of robust intellectual property rights is that they are supposed to drive innovation, giving big rewards to those who come up with new ideas. But a growing list of experts, such as Boldrin and Levine, counter that this is nonsense. “Intellectual monopoly is not a cause of innovation,” they write, “but it is rather an unwelcome consequence of it.” They argue that in young, dynamic industries, intellectual monopoly doesn’t play a major role — it’s only when the ideas run out that companies become obsessed with having the government protect the old ways of doing business.

If you talk to some of the bright-eyed folks in Silicon Valley, America is on an innovation roll. Since the 1980s, the number of patents sought has soared, and the pace is accelerating. Over the last two decades, businesses have increasingly used patents to sue or threaten to sue other companies to get them to pay licensing fees. 2012 was quite a year for patents: the number of court cases increased 29 percent in that year In other words, an explosion in patents could be alone, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers. a sign that a country is getting less innovative, Costs associated with the litigation come to not more. billions per year. Boldrin and Levine provide numerous examples Michele Boldrin and David Levine, authors in their book of how patents shut down of Against Intellectual Monopoly, have noted innovation, from a steam engine patent that that in a single four-year period, from 1997 to may have delayed the Industrial Revolution 2001, patent applications leapt by 50 percent. by a couple of decades to the Wright brothers Meanwhile, the number of lawyers working American patent on the airplane which forced on intellectual property in America went from innovative work in the industry to move to 5,500 to nearly 22,000. France. But are we really getting so much more creative with all these patents? Boldrin and Levine don’t think so. It appears that the number of patents has grown not because there is more innovation, but simply because the number of things that could be patented grew.

More recently, Heidi Williams examined work done in the area of human genome sequencing by the Human Genome Project (a public entity) and also by Celera (a private company). Williams concluded that Celera’s intellectual property rights claims resulted in a persistent 20-30 percent reduction in subsequent scientific As economists William Lazonick and Oner research and product development. Tulum have pointed out, changes in the law have allowed certain parties, like venture capitalists, Economist Petra Moser states that if you look at to grow rich on patents at the expense of the history, intellectual property laws have always public.The Bayh-Dole Act of 1980 made it easier had the potential to squelch progress: for companies, particularly those in biotech, to profit from the results of government-backed “Overall, the weight of the existing historical research done in universities.

4. THE PUBLIC IS GETTING HARMED AND CHEATED It’s increasingly clear that taxpayers are getting ripped off, particularly in areas like in pharmaceuticals. Through entities like the National Institutes of Health, the federal government pays for basic research that gets plundered by corporations that make tremendous profits (and then, of course, lobby to have their taxes reduced). Companies like

Apple expect the U.S. government to protect their intellectual property rights all over the world, yet they assiduously avoid paying taxes. Considering the fact that iPhones, for example, would not exist without taxpayerfunded research in everything from touchscreen technology to GPS, this is especially maddening. Battles between companies and sovereign countries are heating up. Eli Lilly and the Canadian government are gearing up for a showdown since the Canadians took away the company’s rights to two popular new drugs, one for attention-deficit disorder and another for psychotic illness. Despite the fact that countries are supposed to have the right to set their own domestic laws for rules of medicine patents, big corporations are increasingly able to get around them and effectively challenge national policy. Free trade pacts have become a prime vehicle for this. The much-debated TransPacific Partnership, a free-trade pact being negotiated between North American and Asian countries and backed by President Obama, has provoked outrage because it would enhance drug company profits by protecting patents on drugs and medical procedures while blocking less expensive generic drugs. The fear is that powerful corporations will blow right past the laws of individual countries and use patents in ways that pose serious human rights questions.

5. THINGS DON’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY While we certainly want to promote new ideas and to reward creativity, many feel that

intellectual property laws aren’t the best way to do this. As Levine has written: “It is a long and dangerous jump from the assertion that innovators deserve compensation for their efforts to the conclusion that patents and copyrights, that is monopoly, are the best or the only way of providing that reward.” Several of the economists I spoke to at the INET/CIGI conference, such as Italian economist Giovanni Dosi and Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz, have suggested other ways of

rewarding inventors, such as prizes. Stiglitz has pointed out that prizes, as opposed to patents, could help reward research that might not be commercially profitable, like developing a cure for AIDs, or other urgent global problems. Clearly the notion of public benefit has to be vigorously defended in discussions of intellectual property rights. There are many ways the public could get a better deal. The government, for one, could claim rights to revenues for ideas and inventions that were funded with taxpayer money. Or it could force companies like Apple that benefit from such research to pay their share of taxes. So far, the government has not exercised its muscle because there is an imbalance of power between public and private sector. We need to recognize that science and technology grow by accretion, each new creator building on the works of those who came before. Overprotection blocks exactly what it’s supposed to enhance: ideas that help us live better. The intellectual property system needs to be reevaluated so that social and economic progress aren’t hampered by laws that only reward the few, and the public good becomes a top priority.

B y C h r i st i n a Sa r i c h If you gave a rock the same power to make important decisions as a person, the sentient ability of this inanimate object would cause less harm than giving a corporation the impetus to demand ‘rights’ the same as a human being. A rock lies still. It harms no one. A corporation makes lasting, possibly irreversible changes to our world that must be seen for what they truly are – abominable. As people of this sphere we are relegated to begrudge the incessant ecological and humanitarian trespasses which corporations inflict, and we seem cretinous about what to do about it. The sophomoric assertion that we can ‘just focus on ourselves’ as the new age movement often suggests is part of the problem. Being ‘conscious’ does not mean everything is unicorns and rainbows. We can’t just brush aside public policies as if they can be peace-rallied into change. Realizing that the more than 100-year old legislation that gave corporations the same rights as people is what has brought about the numerous atrocities in our world – from nuclear economies (be they accidents or false flag events, outright war, or subtle eugenics) to the infiltration of government agencies by corporate interests (including the FDA, CDC, CIA, FBI, NSA, etc.) is the beginning of truly cutting the snake’s head off. “Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.” ~ Sun Tzu, the Art of War You cannot grow without addressing the shadow.

“Our Bill of Rights was the result of tremendous efforts to institutionalize and protect the rights of human beings. It strengthened the premise of our Constitution: that the people are the root of all power and authority for government. This vision has made our Constitution and government a model emulated in many nations. But corporate lawyers (acting as both attorneys and judges) subverted our Bill of Rights in the late 1800’s by establishing the doctrine of “corporate personhood” — the claim that corporations were intended to fully enjoy the legal status and protections created for human beings.”

the mutation of Personhood to us very clearly. The corporation is a manifestation of the shadow, which must be dealt with. As J. Krishnamurti wrote, “An ideal is merely

an escape, an avoidance of what is. An ideal prevents direct action upon what it is. To have peace we will have to love, we will have to begin not to live an ‘ideal’ life but to see things as they are and act upon them – transform them.” Former Texas Congressman, and presidential candidate Ron Paul has said, “you lose total control” of the right to your own body when rights are given to corporations. According to Paul, the freedoms of speech, religion, assembly, etc. are a ‘property rights’ issue. He imagines that if our own bodies were considered our own property, and the laws protecting ownership of that property were more strictly interpreted, we would all be o.k. Sadly, even that notion is threatened as the government, in collusion with corporations again, plans to take even this right from us. Arguably, even the men who penned the Constitution really created a republic designed to protect property, not people.

The violations of these rights are not punishable in the Supreme Court because corporations have become too powerful. Precedence for ignoring pollution, allowing extravagant CEO wages, mistreatment of workers, and the bailout of banks and other corporations who are ‘too big to fail’ is the bottom line. It is

Fukushima happened because we gave corporations personhood. The Iraq and Afghanistan wars gave countless contractors the ability to hide behind legal rights meant for human beings – no corporation takes accountability or financial responsibility for the damage they inflict. The Deepwater Horizon Gulf spill perpetrated by BP was absolved. The ongoing fracking incidents are equally horrid, and carried out by multiple corporations. If a human being murdered all the people that these corporations had killed, they would be in jail for many lifetime sentences. As it stands, none of these criminals are jailed, or even put before their peers or a judge for a trial. There is only one way to stop this beast. Corporations can no longer be considered persons. If they were a ‘person’, they would be in a straight jacket taking multiple anti-psychotic medications to keep them stabilized. You can learn more about how corporations have changed our world, by watching The Corporation. Please add your comments and suggestions to reverse this ill-created concept of corporation as persons with the same legal rights as a human being.

shelter security within a community intent upon transitioning away from state and corporate dependency. Now research current activities in your neighbourhood and see what there is that may already touch on the key elements of your vision. There may be two or three such initiative already being considered or even practised. But chances are they are not ‘connected-up’. Using your holistically conceived blue print as the crystallizing factor, get involved in helping to create a working symbiosis between these different initiatives so that they each draw benefit from the other and increase the overall awareness of all involved. Book an available space in your local town/village hall or home – prepare your ‘bigger picture’ plan – and map the interconnections that, when all the key elements are functioning fully, will bring renewed life and direction to the whole community.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 2 Very soon your energetic approach will draw fellow enthusiasts to your scheme – while others will back-off. This is an essential part of any process of creative change, and one which defines where true commitment can be found and where fake enthusiasm reveals itself for what it is. I have put this concept to the test and had very positive results. The initiative involved developing a template for a UK market town of 10,000 inhabitants to become largely self sufficient in locally produced food, fuel and fibre over a fifteen year period, starting in 2000. While it was not possible to give as much time as I would have liked to this project, it was possible to share its vision with local motivators and witness a steady process of transformation get under-way – which continues to this day. The town in question has since attracted a significant number of national awards for its innovative socio-economic practices. Don’t be swayed by the cynical voices who say ‘it can’t be done’. My reaction to such remarks is to be stirred into ever greater determination to show that it can!

Once having completed these eight steps, alert your local media and invite local residents to share the vision which you started. Show what progress has already been made and what still needs to be done. Encourage the formation of working groups to take these different complementary initiatives forward and to periodically share the results of their efforts. Forging, bit by bit, a metamorphosis of life in your neighbourhood. Such a project can be done by anyone. No need for any particular qualifications or skills. Just a strong desire to help your community stand on its own two feet and free itself from dependence upon the hierarchical control model which holds so much of society in its thrall.

We have one life – at least in this body. It is a brief flash, a spark, which flaresup into fire, flickers and transforms into something else. To waste this brief and precious gift by evading its call to action – is an error which in all probability cannot be recalled. If we are serious about turning around the fortunes of this planet, then it’s time for talk and action to become synonymous. If we are not, then it’s time to get out of the way.

Gregg Prescott, M.S., In5D Guest -



From birth, virtually all of us have been brainwashed through various outlets that encourage materialism, ego, subservience, control and conformity. But where do the origins of mind control begin and what can we do about it? (Ed-History has always been written, more like re-written, by the so-called victors.)

1. Religion As children, the brainwashing begins in the church when we are baptized. Many parents do not question baptism or the origins of it and blindly have their children baptized as the church welcomes them into the community in the name of Jesus Christ. The Jesus story, alone, isn’t questioned by enough Christians who blindly believe anything they are told in the name of “faith”. I’d like to believe there is a Santa Claus and an Easter Bunny, too. These holidays both have Pagan origins, yet Christians never question these either. It’s all part of the lie propagated to us by religion. Many Christians will argue that their church does good things for others while the bible provides good morals and values. A counter-argument is that you don’t need a church to do good things for others or a bible to be a morally sound person. Additionally, the bible also teaches hatred and fear such as when God allegedly kills everyone with the “Great Flood”, except Noah and his family. These are the horror stories our children learn in Sunday school. Not only that, but the messages are often convoluted and ambiguous. What kind of message are we sending our children?

They also are bought G.I. Joe action figures and pretend to kill opposing troops. Plastic figurines of soldiers in combat are sold to children, some of which prominently display ethnicity, which plays into the divide and conquer mentality that is seeded at this age. Most girls have played with a Barbie doll at some point in their life. The Barbie doll sets the stage for materialistic attitudes as well as buying into the Cosmo girl image. It also dictates the role and expectations of what a woman should look like while dividing our children in stereotyped roles for the rest of their lives.

3. Money, Ego and Materialism We often ask our children, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Rarely does a child say, “A healer” or “A yoga instructor.” Often, a parent will help to persuade a child into a lucrative job role such becoming a doctor or lawyer. The need for money is further enhanced through board games such as Monopoly and Life, where our children learn greed through bankrupting their friends. While there are some positive attributes of these games, the bottom line is how they support a positive view of the banksters who have corrupted this planet while emphasizing materialism and greed. The latest bankster game involves cashless Monopoly: What are kids really learning in the game of Life?

While the bible provides nice parables to learn from, they are not necessary, especially with all of the other negative content provided by religion.

4. Divide & Conquer Techniques

And we haven’t even touched all of the unnecessary deaths through inquisitions and crusades which continue today. Killing innocent people seems to have a common theme in religion and is carried on to our children as they become toddlers.

Our children are taught how to play sports and the importance of winning. While sports provide exercise and promote physical dexterity and good health, they also play into the “divide and conquer” mentality that our children will carry with them for the rest of their lives.

With the idea planted that it is alright to kill in the name of God, our children begin to emulate these preconceived ideas through the games they play.

2. Ridiculous Role Models Boys play with cork guns and cap guns and begin to play “Cowboys and Indians” at a young age. Think about how appalling this is, not only to indigenous people but also teaching a child to kill as a “game.”

Page 20

How many asinine arguments have you seen between two grown men arguing who’s team or player is better than the other. First of all, it’s not “their” team unless they have physical ownership of it. Secondly, the two players they’re arguing about probably could care less about their argument. Lastly, these two people are too blind to see how they’re still buying into the divide and conquer mentality that was engrained within them since they began playing “Cowboys and Indians” at a young age.

The game is blatantly being played before our own eyes, yet many of us fail to see it. For example, if the Dallas cowboys were to play the Kansas City Chiefs (or Washington Redskins), then you have your classic “Cowboys vs. Indians” matchup. It’s all about “My tribe” is better than “Your Tribe” which keeps us separated as people.

5. Television Many of us grew up watching television which can be a humorous outlet or an opportunity to actually learn something, but for the most part, it gets us accustomed and hypnotized into subservience once our brains enter the alpha state of conditioning. How many times have you sat through a commercial, knowing fully how much you despise the commercial without changing the channel? Albert Bandura has a theory of modeling where the child will emulate the parent’s behavior. This is why “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” In the absence of the parent(s), the child will be influenced by what he or she sees on television, further influencing their materialistic and ego-ladened views of society, while accepting television as a normal part of their daily routine. The entire main stream media (radio, television, magazines, book publishers, etc…) are owned by 6 corporations who greatly influence our children through programming. Even the word “programming” should be questioned, because this is exactly what brainwashing does… it programs our minds and especially, the minds of children who are easily influenced.

6. Education Our educational systems encourage conformity and competition while suppressing or ignoring any special abilities a child may have, such as the ability to have an out of body experience. In addition, our children are not learning the true history of our origin while being forced to learn a propaganda filled view of what history looks like through biased eyes.

7. Health In a recent article entitled, “The HIDDEN History Of Fluoride” the addition to fluoride in our water supply as well as in chemtrails has helped to dumb down the population in order to make us more subservient and controllable. Part of the hidden history of fluoride includes the following: 1940 Soviet concentration camps maintained by fluoride administration to inmates to decrease resistance to authority and induce physical deteriorization.1950 Soviets add fluoride to water in prison system to maintain subservience in the inmate population.1954 C.E.Perkins, I.G.Farben chemist, admits fluoride is to reduce resistance in people to authority.Robert Carton, PhD formerly President of the union of Government Scientists working at the US Environmental Protection Agency said: “Water fluoridation is the greatest case of scientific fraud of this century, if not of all time.” If fluoride has been proven to create subservi-

ence in prison and concentration camps, then what is it doing to our children who refuse to question authority figures or any official government position that is against the best interests of humanity? One must also question the insurmountable number of vaccines our children receive. There is NO amount of mercury that is acceptable in the human body, so one must ask how ANY mercury will affect our newborn children? With the increasing number of vaccines our children receive, we also see a correlation to the number of deaths due to vaccinations as well as an exponential rise in autism.

WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT THIS? 1. Realize that as long as there is money, we are ALL economic slaves. It all happens by the age of 12-14. One thing we don’t teach our children is how accumulated wealth is a delusional idea which inconspicuously facilitates status, security and happiness, all of which are inherent without money, yet we have been engrained in this illusion that separates us as a global society while maintaining barbaric divide and conquer principles in a capitalist society masquerading as a democracy. At what point is enough, “enough”?

2. Ask questions… a lot of them! Our children should be encouraged to ask questions as often as possible instead of regurgitation the state-sponsored propaganda that our schools teach. For example, because of corporate greed, we are creating an unsustainable society. The use of “fossil fuels” is a ridiculous proposition within itself to assume that all of the world’s oil came from decomposed dinosaurs, but it’s even more asinine to assume we even need oil for fuel when hydro technologies are available, such as the water powered car invented by Stanley Meyer, or Tesla’s free energy system. Innovators, such as Meyer, are “rewarded” by threats and execution by those who fear the loss of power. The simplest answer is to open source all inventions, including suppressed technologies. Our children never learn these truths in school because according to our economic slave masters, innovation only comes at the expense of need, not conformity. Our children should be encouraged to be the innovators of the future who work in the best interests of humanity instead of CEO’s and business executives who are pillaging our planet at the expense of the 99% who are enslaved beneath them.

3. Think outside the box Our educational system does not encourage creative thinking and the majority of what our children learn is all left-hemisphere thinking, which is mathematical and logic based, instead of right hemisphered, which is artistic and creative. By doing so, our children are essentially being trained to work either inside a cubicle or at a fast food restaurant because they never learned the tools of creativity and how to follow their life purpose versus being forced into the corporate world of economic subservience until they are 65 years old. 4. Stop Watching (State Sponsored Propaganda) Television!! Watching TV is arguably the #1 brainwashing tool of the corporate elite as the television will tell you what to wear and how to think while taking away your own ability to think critically for yourself. The news programs are designed to keep us living in perpetual fear because when we live in fear, we move further away from our true spiritual essence. The use of fear also makes us more controllable as a population where we eventually give up our civil rights in exchange for perceived security. The commercials are just as bad as any “programming”. Most TV commercials show extroverts who are specifically dressed in a certain way with clothing that appeals to your senses in subliminal ways.

5. Try to eliminate as much fluoride from your daily routine. Not only does fluoride help to contribute to a more subservient population, it also calcifies your pineal gland, otherwise known as the “3rd eye”. Your pineal gland is a gateway to other dimensions, so if it is calcified, then you will be limiting your utmost ability for creative

thought and expression as well as dimming your spiritual connection to Creator and your higher self. The further you move away from spirituality, the easier it is for you to be controlled.

6. Research the detriments of vaccinations. Please keep in mind that there is NO amount of mercury that is good for anyone, especially children!

7. Do NOT ingest any genetically modified foods (or processed foods) There have been NO longitudinal studies on the effect of GMO’s on our bodies, so we are all literally guinea pigs being tested. One thing you might want to consider is the poison that is built into specific foods, such as GMO corn. When a bug eats GMO corn, it explodes from the inside out because the BT Toxin is not in the husk of the corn, but it the corn, itself. Imagine what this corn is doing to you and your children? Try to buy organic food or grow your own with organic heirloom seeds. When shopping at the grocery store, avoid just about all products in the middle aisles as they are generally all processed foods.

8. Teach your children how to meditate. Meditation has the potential to literally transform the world. In 1978, what is known as the “Maharishi Effect” a group of 7000 individuals over the course of 3 weeks were meditating in hopes of positively effecting the surrounding city. They were able to literally transform the collective energy of the city which reduced global crime rates, violence, and casualties during the times of their meditation by an average of 16%. Suicide rates and automobile accidents also were reduced with all variables accounted for. In fact, there was a 72% reduction in terrorist activity during the times at which this group was meditation. When you meditate, you look within for answers instead of relying on other people’s opinions, whether religious, political or educational. The truth is ALWAYS within. Anything you have ever been taught has been something that was regurgitated by someone else. Look within and you will find the answers you are looking for. Can You Envision World Without Money? If you can’t envision a world without money, then you will probably have a difficult time understanding the future, especially if you watch a lot of television. In the future, when a child is asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” they will answer, “Me” and will have a concrete idea who “me” is versus the children who have been raised to worship the almighty dollar as they blindly follow the flock ahead of them through religious and educational institutions. We have been brainwashed for over 2,000 years. It’s time to break the chains.

Letter to Minister of Health, Rona Ambrose by David Rowland: Leading Edge Innovator, Author, Speaker, Formulator and Expert in the Field of Nutrition In 1997, D. Rowland was co-plaintiff in a case against Health Minister Alan Rock. The favourable outcome from that case was that the NHPD has forever been prevented from imposing user fees on our industry by arguing that such fees are an illegal form of taxation. The intent of this current case is that Natural Health Products will have to be regulated on the basis of innocent-until-proven-guilty. The following is an open letter I wrote on behalf of the Dietary Supplement Protective Union, to expose the deception being perpetrated by Health Canada. Under the guise of keeping the public safe, the NHPD has restricted over 14,000 safe and beneficial products from the market and has destroyed a number of small family businesses in the process. You may wish to email Health Minister Rona Ambrose at rona.ambrose@ requesting a copy of her response to this letter. Or phone her office at 613-996-9778. Dear Health Minister, Your public statements about alleged safety issues concerning natural health products (NHPs) are misleading. Sadly, you have been misinformed. In the entire 50+ year history of the health food industry, not a single Canadian has died from consuming dietary supplements. What you call NHPs are actually safer than everyday foods. People die every year from anaphylactic shock from eating peanuts or shellfish. No Canadian has ever been killed by vitamins or supplements. On the other hand, MP Terence Young reports that as many as 20,000 Canadians may be killed every year by their prescription drugs. Health Canada first creates a false fear, then falsely proclaims itself as the remedy for that imagined fear. According to the renowned Fraser Institute, the Natural Health Products Directorate (NHPD) should be abolished, for the following reasons: •

The data do not support a public safety argument for government regulation of Natural Health Products (NHPs).

There has been no increase in the safety, efficacy or quality of NHPs since the NHPD was established.

Thousands of safe products have been restricted from the market.

The NHPD costs taxpayers an estimated $9 million per year [approximately $135 million to date].

When you assumed office as Health Minister, you also became the primary defendant in a legal action in which Health Canada is being charged with 22 violations of our constitutional laws: This action is being presented by Rocco Galati, the attorney who recently constitutionalized the Supreme Court of Canada. Included in the above court case, as a matter of public record, is documentation to show that the NHPD has arbitrarily restricted over 14,000 safe and beneficial dietary supplements from the market [file attached]. The NHPD’s arbitrary restrictions have also forced a number of small family owned companies out of business. The number of “authorized” natural health products you claim to have “allowed” on the market is a spin doctored irrelevancy. All of the safe products now sporting NPN licences were entirely safe before the NHPD came into existence. You also do not state how many of these “approved” products had to be watered down in order to meet NHPD requirements, many to the point where they are no longer effective. Our constitutional laws make it absolutely clear that Health Canada does not have the legal authority to issue product licenses. We, the people, have the right to sell whichever products we choose to whomever we wish, provided that we do not commit

Page 22

any crime (e.g., personal injury or fraud). We also have the right to make true health claims for our products, free from censorship by Health Canada. Health Canada has the legal authority to restrict only those products which have been proven to cause death or serious injury. Unless and until there are any dead or injured bodies, all dietary supplements must be presumed to be safe. This is the fundamental principle of justice upon which all of our laws are based: innocent until proven guilty. The NHPD is perverting justice by demanding that suppliers prove their products “not unsafe” before being “permitted” to sell them. This is the same faulty logic (and ethics) as requiring someone to prove that he is not beating his wife. Health Canada’s stranglehold on dietary supplements is based on two lies: (1) these products are unsafe, and (2) Health Canada has the legal authority to licence products. The lie in #1 is obvious. The lie in #2 is about to be established in court. Claiming that dietary supplements are unsafe qualifies as a “big lie”. This is the propaganda use of a lie “so colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” The NHPD is fighting for its life by promulgating its big lie. Product licences are refused on the basis of vague and unspecified “concerns” about safety. Some licence holders are forced to put false cautionary warnings on their labels, the sole purpose of which is to make their products look unsafe. At the recent CHFA West convention, the NHPD had an entire booth dedicated to policing product complaints, again the purpose of which was to make dietary supplements look unsafe. Four inspectors spent the whole show virtually twiddling their thumbs, waiting for that first complaint. Even you help to promulgate the “big lie” when you state, “while still keeping consumer safety a top priority.” Your statement falsely implies that there is a danger from which consumers need to be protected. Dietary supplements are inherently safe: zero fatalities in over half a century. Are you aware that behind the scenes, the top bureaucrats at Health Canada refer to Health Ministers as “the temps”? In their minds, Ministers come and go but Health Canada is forever. They count on you to defer to their “expertise”, which as you can see from the above is extremely biased. They tell you only what they wish, playing the “need to know” game. Minister Ambrose, this is the opportunity for the new broom to sweep clean, so to speak. You can save the day by constitutionalizing Health Canada. Or you can wait until the court demands it. We believe that the former approach is what serves the best interests of our fine country.

“Democracy? I want nothing to do with a system which operates on the premise that my rights don`t exist simply because I am outnumbered`` - R. Lee Wrights Page 24

L o e T t n G i a o r B Of Ha r u o Y b n g N n i i e t w its a e r a N C r e r u T o ral P F s d ath o h t w e M a

When you understand how neural pathways are created in the brain, you get a front row seat for truly comprehending how to let go of habits. Neural pathways are like superhighways of nerve cells that transmit messages. You travel over the superhighway many times, and the pathway becomes more and more solid. You may go to a specific food or cigarettes for comfort over and over, and that forms a brain pathway. The hopeful fact, however, is that the brain is always changing and you can forge new pathways and create new habits. That’s called the neuroplasticity of the brain. I used to drive with one foot on the brake and the other on the accelerator, and I wanted to train myself to drive with one foot only. It took some time, as I had a strong neural pathway for two-footed driving. But because I had the will to do it, I built a new pathway, and I rewired or reprogrammed my brain. You can remove a behavior or thought or addictions directly from the brain. Because of neuroplasticity, the brain’s ever-changing potentials, anything is possible. People who’ve had strokes can retrain their brains to function again by building new pathways. Smokers and overeaters and many others can learn new behaviors and attitudes and can transform their lives. Whether you work with others on their habits or you work with your own (or both), you can apply these understandings to boost your success. Some Powerful Ways to Retrain the Brain 1. IDENTITY THE HABIT YOU’D LIKE TO TRANSFORM AND SET THE INTENTION.


Y o u may remember the punch line “The light bulb has to want to change.” You have to have a high intention to change as well. If there is this high intention, then creating new pathways in your brain is bound to happen. 2. OBSERVE WHAT THE OLD HABIT OR PATHWAY IS DOING IN YOUR LIFE. Look at feelings, thoughts, and how the body is responding to the habit, and see what results you’re creating in your life. Be the witness, and be aware. 3. SHIFT YOUR FOCUS. This is very important. To create a new neural pathway, you take the focus off the old habit, and then that old habit eventually falls away. Don’t pay attention to the donuts and cakes. Take your awareness and focus it on good, wholesome, healthy delicious foods.

Say “no” or “cancel” when an old thought or impulse comes in, and say, “I don’t have to do that anymore.” Then turn toward the new neural pathway you’re building and keep on going in the right direction. 6. USE AVERSION THERAPY. This isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. It’s an optional path. I like to call it “the maggots on the chocolate cake technique.” I used to love candies and sweets, and when I stopped eating them, I still had to pass by them when I walked by the candy store in town. I used aversion to train my brain to walk on by: “That’s junk,” I said to myself. “It’s made in factories, sickeningly sweet, makes me feel bad. The company makes it so sweet just to addict buyers. I don’t want any of that.” So I talk myself out of it. I’ve use it with many clients (only those who say they want it) on smoking, junk food, cocaine and many other behaviors. 7. CREATE A SPECIFIC PLAN AND CHOOSE WHAT TO DO INSTEAD.

4. USE YOUR IMAGINATION. You can build new neural pathways not only with new behaviors, but through the imagination. Just imagine the new behaviors over and over and over. Keep repeating that in your mind so you build new pathways. Focus your mind and retrain your brain. 5. INTERRUPT YOUR THOUGHTS AND PATTERNS WHEN THEY ARISE.

When you get specific, it’s easier to build new neural pathways. You “make it official.” Decide if you want to exercise instead of overeating or if you want to eat fruit instead of candy. Just keep focused on the new choice. You may want to create affirmations and anchors to reinforce your choices. This can be “I’m free or “I’m in control.” Reinforce this with energy therapies like EFT or other techniques.

Look at what’s in the way. Look at secondary gain – what you’ve been getting out of the old habits or pathways. Look at the stress in your life and how you can handle it differently. Get your mind in the place of possibility. Handle the emotions and thoughts and get on a new superhighway in your mind. 9. CONNECT WITH YOUR HIGHER SOURCE FOR INSPIRATION AND SUPPORT. Listen to our guidance. Know you have the Force within you, and therefore you have great power. Meditation creates new pathways and brain changes. Actual studies have been done on the brains of monks to show meditation’s effect on neural circuits of the brain. 10. TRANSFORM AND MAKE THE SHIFT. Know that transformation is always possible and that you can create new brain pathways whenever you’re ready to make the shift. When you keep your mind in the “I can do it!” space, you get a clear sense that you’re done with the old and on a new beam now. Some people feel we’re being rewired spiritually for anew era. There’s great upheaval now in our world. And there’s a process of transformation happening on earth in which huge changes are taking place for all of humanity. You have to be present in the moment, overcome your fears, and get to know the Infinite source so you can be a vehicle for the light to predominate on the earth. Credits:

99.99% Japan’s nuclear industry sacrificing

by: Ethan A. Huff

of its people for profits, says expert The three-year anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster recently passed, and a prominent nuclear expert has come out in protest of the way both the Japanese government and the country’s nuclear industry continue to handle the situation. During a recent episode of the Nuclear Hotseat podcast, celebrity and lawmaker Taro Yamamoto lamented how the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) is still

considered here in Japan,” stated Yamamoto during the interview. “I think it is wrong that people’s lives are being sacrificed because of money and the company profits... 99.99 percent of the people are being sacrificed.” You can listen to this podcast episode here:

“[R]adioactive water is still leaking, there is still a very long way to go until it can be decommissioned, and we must be prepared for a long term battle which will go beyond the present generation,” wrote Fukushima resident Arao Shunsuke in a letter posted at “Even now over 100,000 people from Fukushima are still living in miserable conditions in temporary housing.” You can read Shunsuke’s full letter here:

At least 75 children have confirmed cases of thyroid cancer, but authorities deny link to Fukushima From day one, many health officials, nuclear experts and, of course, spokesmen representing TEPCO have denied that Fukushima radiation is significantly impacting public health. But we know from numerous recent reports that, like Shunsuke pointed out, radioactive contamination is persistent in the region, and leakage at the plant continues to this very day. It only makes logical sense, then, that all of this contamination is going to affect the people living around the plant, including the 75 children that were reported back in February as having confirmed cases of thyroid cancer. But these cases are being ignored by authorities, who insist that Fukushima radiation is somehow not a threat. “The [radiation] monitoring post, which is in the square in front of the Nihonmatsu City Hall, shows 0.3 microsieverts per hour; the lawn at the entrance shows 0.7 and the reading in my living room is 0.2,” adds Shunsuke. “But this is above the level of 1 millisievert per year (0.23 microsieverts per hour), which is the exposure limit for the general public.

“Radioactive water is still leaking, there is still a very long way to go until it can be decommissioned, and we must be prepared for a long term battle which will go beyond the present generation,”

Despite all of this, TEPCO has yet to take responsibility for any of the damage caused, both in and around Fukushima and throughout Japan and the rest of the world. The utility would prefer to pretend that nothing is wrong while continuing to bungle the ongoing cleanup efforts, which are putting the entire world at risk.

downplaying the threat of radiation, which he believes will end up “sacrificing” 99.99 percent of the Japanese population. In Japan, stated Yamamoto, it is still taboo to even talk about radiation, even though its effects have been felt throughout the country and even beyond its borders. Insinuating that the country as a whole has essentially buried its head in the sand on this important issue, Yamamoto called out the nuclear industry in particular for minimizing the radioactive impact of Fukushima, which many now believe to be the worst nuclear accident in recorded history. “Idiotic ideas -- like restarting the nuclear plants -- are being

Cleanup efforts ‘nowhere near under control,’ says local Fukushima resident These are powerful words that also represent the views of many others who are “in the know” about what is really going on across the Pacific. Speaking to reporters, a resident of Fukushima recently explained how the situation is “nowhere near under control” as the media claims, and that it will probably take several generations to make a significant dent in the mitigation efforts at the stricken plant.

What Causes Hair Loss? Hair loss is caused by multiple factors; health, medication, diet, stress, illness and hereditary genetics. One major reason is hereditary genetics which determine our potential hair loss condition. Some people see hair loss in their 20's, while others see little hair loss over their lifetime. An enzyme called 5-alpha reductase converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which inhibits hair production and degrade the follicles over time. This condition is known as androgenic alopecia (AGA), also called male and female pattern baldness. As DHT attack the hair follicles it will lead to thinner and more fragile hair as you age.

How does Bio-Fen® PLUS work? The fenugreek seed extract in both formulas reduces excess blood lipid levels. Fenugreek contains an active plant sterol, which has been shown to inhibit 5alpha-reductase activity – the enzyme responsible for converting excess testosterone to DHT (which is the primary molecule that causes hair loss). The SDG from flax lignans in both formulas also decreases excess cholesterol - the building block of testosterone. Based on new research on the rate of metabolism of SDG in flax lignans (8-12 hours on average).

How long must I use Bio-Fen® Plus?

Bio-Fen® Plus for Men capsules are usually effective at stopping hair loss within the first two months. However, since healthy hair grows only about 1 cm each month, it may take up to three months before you notice that hair growth is increased or the rate of hair loss is decreased. Anyone experiencing new growth should see it within four months. Once you stop completely your hair growth pattern will slowly go back to the point where you started.

Bio-Fen® Plus for Men will also help to:
