Editor of NaturalNews.com

(NaturalNews) It's happening everywhere now: Potassium Iodide supplements are getting wiped out as people concerned about the possibility of radiation fallout are purchasing them for their own protection. Yesterday evening, we posted a story about an alternative source of iodine -- Nascent Iodine -- and now it has been completely sold out everywhere in North America, too. (Our store was sold out within minutes and now the product is back-ordered.) The U.S. Surgeon General has even publicly supported the idea of buying potassium iodide as a "precaution" in case the radioactive fallout reaches the United States.

In the midst of all this, some sellers are jacking up their prices to exploit the shortage for their own financial gain. One seller hiked his price from $49 / bottle to $499 / bottle on eBay. Another guy was asking $1500!

The NaturalNews Store has been the lowest price on the 'net for Nascent Iodine, and we kept our prices on sale through this entire iodine shortage because we always strive to deliver exceptional values to our customers (and we operate with ethics, too, meaning we don't price gouge just because people are desperate -- shame on all the pricks and shysters who are trying to rip people off in this moment of crisis! They remind me of the price gouging practices of the pharmaceutical industry...).

Remarkably, our Nascent Iodine still sells for just $23 even though the exact same product costs at least 50% more elsewhere (http://store.naturalnews.com/index....). (The manufacturer will only allow us to run this low price for another week or so, after which we will be forced to raise it back to "regular" pricing, which is just under $36 a bottle. We often negotiate incredible discount deals for NaturalNews readers, but the always have a time limit window of opportunity...)

Not surprisingly, at this price we sold out very, very quickly. And now people are asking what else they can consume to increase their intake of natural iodine.

Fortunately, there are several key foods that are very high in iodine -- and no, table salt isn't one of them. To boost your levels of iodine from table salt, you'd practically have to poison yourself with an excess of salt. The best forms of natural iodine, it turns out, are sea vegetables.

And YES, sea vegetables can provide sufficient levels of iodine to help prevent radiation poisoning of your glandular system. One quarter of a teaspoon of organic kelp granules (see below), for example, provides 3mg of iodine (milligrams, not micrograms).

Remember, 1 mg = 1,000 mcg. And the recommended daily intake of iodine is just 150 mcg (micrograms). Dr. David Brownstein recommends a daily intake that is significantly higher -- as much as 6 - 12mg per day, which you can reasonably achieve from eating a planned quantity of sea vegetables. Of course, an iodine supplement such as Nascent Iodine (http://www.naturalnews.com/031708_i...) is going to provide a far larger serving of iodine, which it's why it's worth ordering some and having them on hand for the future.

Sea vegetables with natural iodine: Kelp, Nori, Kombu and Sea Spaghetti


One of the very best natural sources of iodine is Kelp. The NaturalNews Store consistently carries an inventory of Organic Kelp Granules that provide 3mg (yes, milligrams, not micrograms) of iodine in just a 1/4 teaspoon serving.

You can find that product at this link:
http://store.naturalnews.com/index....

We are probably already sold out by the time you read this, but we have 1,000 more bottles arriving on Monday, so if you order now, you can most likely receive them within 10 - 14 working days.

You can also find this same product sold at health food stores and online nutritional retailers. It will be the next iodine source that's sold out as soon as enough people realize that kelp is an abundant source of natural iodine.

This product is normally used as a kind of natural salt shaker, to add a salty taste to soups, salads or just about any meal, by the way. It's a regular superfood source that's also very high in other trace minerals.

All seaweeds contain iodine in a natural state. One of the highest is kombu, which contains up to 2500 mcg (micrograms) per gram of kombu. You can find kombu seaweed at many local health food stores, too. Just soak it in water to reconstitute it, then you can cook it into foods, eat it on a salad, or whatever you want. Cooking does not destroy iodine, so don't be afraid to heat it if you want to. Iodine is a trace mineral, and no minerals are destroyed through high-heat cooking (just vitamins, proteins and other phytonutrients).

Nori sheets (the seaweed sheets used to make sushi) are also a source of iodine, although they only contain about 16mcg per gram. So they're not nearly as iodine rich as kombu. But nori is easy to find and delicious to eat. Make some nori wraps!

Nori is often very easy to find at health food stores, and we also sell it at a special sale price at the NaturalNews Store: http://store.naturalnews.com/index....

Can you overdose on iodine from nori sheets? It's almost impossible to do so. You'd have to eat hundreds of nori sheets at one setting to get that much iodine. And given that most people are chronically deficient in iodine, a person can safely consume up to 50 mg of iodine per day to restore sufficient levels in the body, according to Dr. David Brownstein (yes, 50 milligrams, not micrograms). The U.S. government's "official" numbers on iodine are, just like all the other nutrients, kept artificially low (like with vitamin D) in order to encourage people to actually stay deficient in essential nutrients (http://www.naturalnews.com/030598_v...).

Sea Spaghetti

As luck would have it, we just launched a new seaweed-based superfood product at the NaturalNews Store called Sea Spaghetti. It's made entirely from a natural brown seaweed called himanthalia elongata. It's made in France, and we just got it into our store yesterday.

It's a natural source for many trace minerals, including iodine. Although it's not a huge amount, each 5-gram portion (a very small amount) of sea spaghetti delivers 500 micrograms of iodine (333% of daily value). This is not enough to correct a severe iodine deficiency, but every little bit helps, and even seemingly small portions of this food can start to add up to several milligrams of iodine. It can truly help supply a steady source of iodine to meet your body's nutritional needs.

This is also a fantastic product for completely removing grains and pastas from your diet. You can just make your favorite spaghetti sauces using these sea noodles instead! It contains just 12 calories per serving! (Yes, 12.)

Don't get ripped off on radiation pills

There's panic in the market right now. People are desperate to find a source of iodine. But that panic is unjustified. Most people simply don't know you can get plenty of iodine from eating sea vegetables.

There are also brown seaweed extracts available on the market today that have their own natural iodine. For years, I've been recommending Modifilan (http://www.modifilan.com), which is an amazing brown seaweed that's naturally rich in iodine.

You can also just go out and buy seaweed vegetables at your local health food store right now. Or get yourself a "seaweed salad." Or go visit a local Japanese restaurant and order something with seaweed in it. Lots of seaweed. It's all good for you for lots of reasons beyond the iodine.

Do not get ripped off paying $600 for radiation pills! It disgusts me that some people are profiteering off this crisis by jacking up their prices to insane levels. I will have no part of that. That's why we kept our prices low and even on sale for the Nascent Iodine sold through our store: http://store.naturalnews.com/index....

Oh, and by the way, we are donating $5,000 to the relief efforts in Japan in the next 24-48 hours. I hope to have time to post a story about that on NaturalNews. These are funds we acquired through the registrations for our "Financial Preparedness" event that runs this Sunday (which is also sold out).

We are trying to do our best here to help people get prepared for what's coming. We actually had our Nascent Iodine on sale before Japan's nuclear disaster, but virtually no one bought any at that time. There's a lesson here in all this: Get prepared in advance and don't allow yourself to be caught without being ready for what's coming: Financial collapse, natural disasters, social upheavals and a whole lot more.

That's why I publicly announced BEFORE all this happened that we would be focusing more on preparedness here on NaturalNews. Ten days before Japan's nuclear disaster, we announced our first preparedness event: http://www.naturalnews.com/031548_f...

The second preparedness event is going to happen in April and will be announced shortly. Watch NaturalNews for updates, and subscribe to our free email newsletter to be kept in the loop on all these important developments: http://www.naturalnews.com/ReaderRe...

The world is changing rapidly. There is information you need to know that your government officials are not admitting. They don't want to cause a panic, so they tell people everything is okay. The problem with that approach is that is lulls people into a false sense of security and discourages intelligent preparedness. I'd rather we be fully informed and aware of the realistic threats out there so that we can be fully prepared to handle the expected events that life seems to throw at us.

Preparedness is wise. And right now, a whole lot of people around the world are suddenly wising up to the reality of what the alternative media has been talking about for years.

Fukushima radiation plumes have now struck the Carolinas and Florida, say reports

Tuesday, March 29, 2011
by: Jonathan Benson, staff writer

(NaturalNews) Several nuclear power plants in the southeastern US have begun to detect low levels of radioactive iodine-131 in the air, which is the same type of radiation now being found all over the place as a result of the mega-earthquake and tsunami that struck the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan on March 11, 2011. Reuters has indicated that power plants in both North and South Carolina, as well as one in Florida, have all detected what they say are "low levels" of the non-native radioactive substance.

"If there were radiation coming from one our own sites, we would be seeing other types of radiation than iodine-131," said Drew Elliot, a spokesman for Progress Energy. "Other nuclear stations throughout the East Coast all started picking this up within the last week. It all points to something coming from overseas. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) both say it poses no threat to public safety."

Progress Energy's Hartsville, SC, plant and Crystal River, Fla., plant both detected what the company says are low levels of radioactive iodine-131. And Duke Energy's two plants in South Carolina, as well as its plant in Huntersville, NC, all reported levels of the non-native radioactive substance as well.

The report ties in to various others that have detected radioactive particles in rainwater in Massachusetts, California, Pennsylvania, and Washington state. It appears that all across the US, evidence of the Fukushima nuclear fallout is gradually beginning to turn up, and yet with every report comes empty assurances from government officials that everything is fine, and that the levels being detected are supposedly harmless to humans (http://www.naturalnews.com/031871_r...).

Meanwhile, continued reports are trickling in that indicate a rapidly-escalating crisis at the Fukushima plant. Deadly plutonium is beginning to show up in soil samples near the plant, and dangerously-high levels of radiation are now being detected in seawater nearly a mile from where the nuclear plant dumps water into the ocean. And this is only the information that is being publicly released, sometimes days after officials have become aware of it.

Incredible organic green superfood: VITAMINERAL GREEN

This is a powerhouse of hard-core food, not a supplement! I add a heaping TBS to my afternoon green smoothie, but you can also have it alone with 8 oz of liquid (4 oz organic grape juice and 4 oz water). No, it does not taste good, but if you add some GreenZilla Energy to your green smoothie like I do, then it will taste fine.

It is a gluten-free / yeast-free, 100% raw, organic green food loaded with amazing probiotics that is the same low cost as the Boku I was consuming ($1 per serving)! I ran it across Natural News to see what Mike Adams thinks about it, and it's in his top 3 picks of green foods along with the Boku. He calls it the king of foods. I checked the nutrient profile and was amazed to see that it contains the most amazing array of probiotics ever and contains 50% of the RDA for calcium and iron and 4 grams of protein. That's huge! As great as Boku is the iron content is only 8% and calcium 6%. I found the new 5.0 version, which includes over 4 billion hardy probiotic units per heaping TBS, on www.Amazon.com for $45 (43 servings using 1 heaping TBS or 53 using a level TBS in a 500 gram jar; they also make capsules at $52 for a 53-day supply) with FREE supersaver shipping. You can get the capsules cheapest here ($40 for a 53-day supply):
http://www.naturalhealthyconcepts.com/vitamineral-green-capsules-400-p-healthforce-nutritionals.html

No more having to buy a separate probiotic supplement unless you have high needs! Yay! It may also reduce or eliminate your need to supplement with iron and calcium depending on your diet, lifestyle, and deficiency levels.

I found lots of raving testimonials online!

Say NO WAY! to WHEY! (diabetes and MS?)

Robert Cohen, author of MILK A-Z

After fat and casein are removed from milk, dairy processors
are left with whey protein. Whey is composed of bovine blood
proteins. Serum albumen. Lactalbumen. Dead white blood
cells. Hormonal residues including estrogen and
progesterone.

The body's reaction to a foreign protein is to destroy that
antigen-like invader with an antibody. For those individuals
unfortunate enough to possess a genetic pre-disposition to
such an event, the antibody then turns upon one's own cells.
That is what is known as an auto-immune response.

In the case of diabetes and Multiple Sclerosis (MS), the
body's response to whey proteins is to attack the outer
membrane protecting nerve cells, or the myelin sheath.

It has long been established that early exposure to bovine
proteins is a trigger for insulin dependent diabetes
mellitus. Researchers have made that same milk consumption
connection to MS. The July 30, 1992 issue of the New England
Journal of Medicine first reported the diabetes autoimmune
response milk connection:

"Patients with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus produce
antibodies to cow milk proteins that participate in the
development of islet dysfunction... Taken as a whole, our
findings suggest that an active response in patients with
IDDM (to the bovine protein) is a feature of the auto-immune
response."

On December 14, 1996, The Lancet revealed:

"Cow's milk proteins are unique in one respect: in
industrialized countries they are the first foreign proteins
entering the infant gut, since most formulations for babies
are cow milk-based. The first pilot stage of our IDD
prevention study found that oral exposure to dairy milk
proteins in infancy resulted in both cellular and immune
response...this suggests the possible importance of the gut
immune system to the pathogenesis of IDD."

THE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS/MILK CONNECTION

The April 1, 2001 issue of the Journal of Immunology
contained a study linking MS to milk consumption.

Michael Dosch, M.D., and his team of researchers determined
that multiple sclerosis and type I (juvenile) diabetes
mellitus are far more closely linked than previously
thought. Dosch attributes exposure to cow milk protein as a
risk factor in the development of both diseases for people
who are genetically susceptible. According to Dosch:

"We found that immunologically, type I diabetes and multiple
sclerosis are almost the same - in a test tube you can
barely tell the two diseases apart. We found that the
autoimmunity was not specific to the organ system affected
by the disease. Previously it was thought that in MS
autoimmunity would develop in the central nervous system,
and in diabetes it would only be found in the pancreas. We
found that both tissues are targeted in each disease."

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

Multiple sclerosis affects approximately 300,000 Americans.
Two-thirds of those diagnosed with MS are women. Most
researchers believe that MS is an autoimmune disease. Auto
means "self."

WHO DOES NOT GET MS?

It is interesting to note that Eskimos and Bantus (50
million individuals living in East Africa) rarely get MS.
Neither do those native North and South American Indian or
Asian populations who consume no cow's milk or dairy
products.

WHO GETS MS?

The British medical journal Lancet reported that dairy-rich
diets filled have been closely linked to the development of
MS. (The Lancet 1974;2:1061)

A study published in the journal Neuroepidemiology revealed
an association between eating dairy foods and an increased
prevalence of MS. (Neuroepidemiology 1992;11:304­12.)

MS researcher, Luther Lindner, M.D., a pathologist at Texas
A & M University College of Medicine, wrote:

"It might be prudent to limit the intake of milk and milk
products."

Women are targeted by dairy industry scare tactics that
offer misinformation regarding osteoporosis. Two-thirds of
MS victims are women. As milk and cheese consumption
increase along population lines, so too does an epidemic
number of MS cases. The numbers add up. The clues add up.
The science supports epidemiological studies. Got diabetes?
Got MS? The milk connection has been established.

Whey protein? Say no way!

RADIATION protection from Japan NUCLEAR FALLOUT

This is a good news/bad news scenario. Good news for those of you that have been consuming superfoods containing Iodine like in eXfuze Seven+ and Chlorella; you are better equipped to handle the radiation exposure possibly coming our way. For full protection you need to have the iodine in your body before the exposure. Bad news for the people who have not been consuming iodine containing superfoods bcs the typical American is iodine deficient. That is why thyroid issues run rampant in our nation.

Below is a great article explaining all of this and why it's more important than ever to get your hands on iodine.

Here is some helpful info if you're looking to get the biggest bang for your buck in terms of iodine potency. I have used the Nascent Iodine mentioned in the article below and Iosol Iodine. The Iosol contains way more iodine than Nascent at 1830 mcg per drop for only $18 per bottle on www.ewater.com/2020. Nascent contains 400 mcg per drop and runs on average at $36 unless you get the 3 pak sale price on Natural News which comes to about $21 per bottle. However, you would still have to take a lot more than with the Iosol, which means it's a lot more expensive. To order Iosol on the ewater website click on the link: Other Health Support (under the General Health & Nutrition category).

Iodine protects thyroid and glandular system from radiation damage: Here's where to get some

Tuesday, March 15, 2011
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com

(NaturalNews) In the aftermath of Japan's nuclear catastrophe and the fear that winds could blow radiation into the west coast of North America, there has been a sudden rush on potassium iodide, which helps protect your glandular system from radiation poisoning if you're exposed. The Japanese government is handing out this supplement in huge quantities to the survivors north of Tokyo, and here at NaturalNews, we've received a flurry of requests from people wanting to know where they can find available supplies of potassium iodide.

These "radiation pills" are being sold out everywhere. NukePills.com says they were completely sold out over the weekend. Pharmacies in California are receiving a stampede of phone calls from near-panicked residents there, reports Fox News: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/03/1...

I know of two sources where there is still inventory, see below...

Why you need to boost your iodine levels to protect against radiation

The important thing is to get iodine into your body in a safe supplement form. This does not have to be "potassium iodide." It can also be in the form of Nascent Iodine, which is a high-quality iodine supplement that has been available in the natural product marketplace for several years. (Do NOT drink topical antiseptic iodine products such as Betadine -- these products are not suitable for human consumption. They are povidone-iodine mixtures.)

Dr. Brownstein is one of the top experts on iodine. About radiation exposure, he explains: "If there is enough inorganic, non-radioactive iodine in our bodies, the radioactive fallout has nowhere to bind in our bodies. It will pass through us, leaving our bodies unharmed. It is important to ensure that we have adequate iodine levels BEFORE this fallout hits." (Source link below, from the IMVA website.)

What Dr. Brownstein is explaining is that you must get iodine in your body BEFORE being exposed to radiation. And most people are extremely deficient in iodine on a daily basis (http://www.naturalnews.com/023107_i...).

I've interviewed Dr. Brownstein about iodine and have recommended his website as well: http://www.drbrownstein.com

There, he talks about the relationship between iodine deficiency and many chronic degenerative diseases -- especially thyroid disorders which are often linked to obesity.

But for right now, people are mostly focused on using iodine to protect their bodies from possible radiation exposure, so keep reading...

Sources for Nascent Iodine

As luck would have it, we announced a sale on Nascent Iodine several days before the Japanese nuclear reactor catastrophe. As of right now, we still have several hundred bottles remaining in our store at: http://store.naturalnews.com/index....

A 3-pack of the product there is just under $62, which I believe is the lowest price on the 'net. You can check the link above, but these will be sold out very, very quickly due to world events and our incredible pricing. I'm sorry we don't have more available. We only have what we have, and after it's sold out, the entire supply line is probably wiped out so we won't be able to get more for a while. (This is a good reminder to all of us of the importance of preparing IN ADVANCE of such events, which means being prepared all day, every day.)

You may be able to find more inventory available at these sources:

IntegratedHealth.com has Nascent Iodine in the same 3 pack for around $99. They're a great company that we recommend on a regular basis: http://www.integratedhealth.com/

They also sell their Rejuvenate product which contains chlorella -- another great superfood for protection against radiation. Chlorella has been used after nuclear accidents and even nuclear bombings to help clear radioactive elements out of the body.

Dr. Mark Sircus is an excellent source of information about iodine, magnesium and other minerals. Over at the IMVA website, he has a book on iodine that I highly recommend: http://iodine.imva.info/

Eat spinach for bigger muscles, better cell performance

Saturday, March 12, 2011
by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) Popeye was right; eating spinach really does help build muscle strength and improve cellular function, according to a new study released by the Swedish medical school Karolinska Institutet. A follow-up to a similar study released by the school back in the 1990s, researchers again observed that the natural nitrates found in spinach and other leafy greens feed muscular mitochondria, and thus help regulate blood pressure, immune defense, and cell metabolism.

Inorganic nitrates, which are different than the synthetic nitrates commonly added to processed foods, are used by the body to produce nitric oxide (NO), a vital molecular component that delivers oxygen to blood and performs a variety of other physiological and pathological processes in the body. NO is a powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-thrombotic, and vasodilation agent, all of which result in numerous health benefits.

And it turns out that spinach is loaded with these nitrates, which are converted into NO and used throughout the body. Professors Eddie Weitzberg and Jon Lundberg, coauthors of the Swedish study, observed that consuming the nitrate equivalent of 200-300g of spinach for just three days along with intense exercise improves mitochondrial efficiency. This in turn reduces oxygen consumption and increases the production of energy-rich substances in muscle tissue, resulting in both improved muscle gains and better overall health.

"The mitochondria play a key role in cellular metabolism," said the authors. "Improved mitochondrial function probably has many positive effects on the body, and could explain some of the health benefits of vegetables."

Besides improving muscle growth and cellular health, the NO-producing substances in spinach also help treat diseases like diabetes and heart disease, which are a product of mitochondrial dysfunction. Since NO helps reduce blood pressure, it is capable of warding off diabetes in pre-diabetic individuals, as well as reducing strain on the heart, which can lead to heart attack or stroke.

Teacher fired for bumper sticker highlighting the over-medication of children

Tuesday, March 08, 2011 by: Jonathan Benson, staff writer

(NaturalNews) When Tarah Ausburn, a former English teacher at Imagine Prep High School in Surprise, Ariz., refused to remove a bumper sticker from her car that asked the question, "Have you drugged your kids today?" officials fired her, according to reports from KPHO CBS 5 in Phoenix. The sticker, which Ausburn told reporters makes a statement about the over-medication of today's children, sits among 60 other controversial stickers that may have also played a role in her dismissal.

"It's kind of a criticism of us tending to over-medicate hyperactive kids who might not need those medications," said Ausburn to KPHO, likely referring to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) drugs like Ritalin that are widely overused and abused (http://www.naturalnews.com/ADHD_dru...).

Ausburn had only worked at the school for two months when she was notified that some of her stickers were upsetting some parents, and that they did not fit into the school's culture. School officials told Ausburn that she could either remove the stickers or park her car off campus. She refused both options and was consequently released.

"You have to remain true to your beliefs, you have to stand up for what you believe is right and I don't believe it's right to censor people just because your opinion doesn't agree with theirs," she said.

Ausburn told 12 News in Phoenix that when parents first began filing complaints about the stickers with administrators at Imagine, Principal John Buzzard supported her. When parents did not get their way at the school, they allegedly went above Buzzard's authority to the regional board which ultimately sided against her, she said.

"This doesn't affect the quality of my teaching," said Ausburn to 12 News, referencing her defense before the regional board. "I've never been verbally reprimanded for any of my teaching instruction, I've never been written up at Imagine or any other school ... this doesn't impact my ability to teach."

Ausburn initially tried to regain her position at Imagine following the incident, but has yet to receive a response from the school. She is now pursuing legal action to "push the issue."

Other bumper stickers on Ausburn's car include, "I'm Already Against the Next War," "Military Solutions are Problems," "Don't Believe Everything You Think," and "Jesus Called, He Wants His Religion Back."

Japan halts vaccines from Pfizer, Sanofi after deaths of four children

Monday, March 07, 2011
Editor of NaturalNews.com
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

(NaturalNews) The deaths just keep mounting all across the world: Children are collapsing into comas and then dying, just minutes after receiving combination vaccines that have been deceptively marketed as "completely safe." Last year, Australia temporarily banned flu vaccines in children after they were found to have caused vomiting, fevers and seizures (http://www.naturalnews.com/029586_A...).

Today the damage from vaccines is emerging in Japan, where the health ministry has suspended the use of vaccines from Pfizer and Sanofi-Aventis following the deaths of four children there who died within minutes after receiving these vaccine shots.

All four children received combination vaccines, where multiple shots are combined into one high-potency injection. MMR is another example of a combination vaccine shot that combines vaccines for measles, mumps and rubella. There is very strong evidence that vaccines are far more dangerous when given in combination than when given one at a time (http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=60825...). (http://www.naturalnews.com/030678_M...)

The great vaccine damage cover-up

What will now happen in Japan is that a group of vaccine safety experts will meet to discuss the vaccines, and no doubt most of the members of that group will be paid off by Big Pharma. Within a day or two, a statement will be issued that states there is "no causal relationship exists between vaccines and child deaths" and the vaccine program will continue as usual. The ongoing deaths of children will be ignored or explained away as "mere coincidence."

How many coincidences does it take to make a pattern? If you're one of the brainwashed vaccine zealots, there is never a pattern. ALL deaths are automatically considered "coincidence," no matter how many occur or how frequently they appear. A true scientist, of course, would observe the pattern and realize there is a cause-and-effect phenomenon taking place. But then again, vaccine zealots are nothing like real scientists. They are propagandists.

This is how the vaccine industry operates every day: Lie to the public that the vaccines are 100% safe and effective, then deny any hint of vaccines causing damage to anyone. It's a double-layer deception. First, there's the deception that vaccines are safe (they aren't, and the vaccine industry refuses to subject them to scientific clinical trials versus non-vaccinated children in order to prevent this truth from coming out), and secondly that vaccines don't damage anyone. That's yet another lie: Vaccines cause untold damage to the neurology of children and adults alike.

Children are routinely killed by vaccines, and vaccines are being pushed in the false context that presumes vaccines are the only way to protect children from infectious disease in the first place. Nutrition actually works better, and it doesn't kill children. But that's not the choice presented to parents. The choice is either vaccination or non-vaccination. The choice is never presented as vaccination or vitamin D supplementation, is it?

The real cost in human suffering

If vaccines are so safe, then why do so many healthy young children suddenly collapse into autism in the hours or days following vaccination? Why is this neurological damage a global phenomenon that almost always occurs in children who are vaccinated? Why are non-vaccinated children so much healthier, more vibrant, more intelligent and more immune to infectious disease?

The vaccine industry doesn't want you to ask these questions. You're supposed to just accept their propaganda, take your shot, and keep coming back for more, year after year. If your child gets autism, it your fault, not theirs (according to them). If your child collapses into a coma and dies, you have no legal recourse because the U.S. Supreme Court has made it illegal to sue for damages from vaccine companies (http://www.naturalnews.com/031453_S...).

The entire medical system has been configured to suppress vaccine lawsuits and deny the evidence of vaccine damage and death. The court system denies justice to anyone whose children are damaged or killed by vaccines. And parents who question the safety of vaccines are ridiculed by doctors and even called "baby killers" by Bill Gates, who has funneled tens of billions of dollars into mass vaccination campaigns despite the fact that vaccines are killing children.

Of course, the vaccine industry claims its vaccines are saving far more children than they are killing (they claim their vaccines kill exactly zero children, by the way -- a number that is an obvious lie). But even this argument falls flat when you consider that using nutrition to enhance immune function is far more effective than using vaccines. Even the Nobel prize winning Luc Montagnier, co-discoverer of the AIDS virus, says you can cure AIDS with a strong, healthy immune system (http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=BAFF5...). Much the same is true with nearly every other common infectious disease: Strong immune function resists infection far better than any vaccine. Vitamin D, for example, also works to prevent tuberculosis. The CDC has never admitted it publicly, of course, because the CDC is a political organization that protects the profits of the vaccine makers.

When it comes to what's real versus what's just corporate propaganda, one thing is certain: Scientific facts have never stood in the way of vaccine profits. The vaccine industry has become an unstoppable death machine based on non-existent science and arrogant quackery. It has become a huge profit center for the medical industry, of course, because much of the damage caused by vaccines results in future medical care profits that feed the drug companies (http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=BAE7F...).

What's clear from all this is that vaccines are great at one thing: Population control.

"The world today has 6.8 billion people... that's headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent." - Bill Gates (http://www.naturalnews.com/029911_v...)

As of this week, the population of children in Japan has been reduced by four. And more vaccine-induced deaths are no doubt happening all across the world that go unreported or are intentionally censored out the medical records.

Cell phone use found to affect the glucose metabolism of the brain
Monday, March 07, 2011
by: Dave Gabriele

(NaturalNews) Does using a cell phone have an effect on the brain? According to a 2011 study titled "Effects of Cell Phone Radiofrequency Signal Exposure on Brain Glucose Metabolism," the answer is absolutely. The study, headed by Nora D. Volkow, M.D. and conducted by the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, examined the effect of cell phone use on the brain by utilizing positron emission tomography (PET) on 47 participants.

Cell phones were placed against the ears of the participants for a period of 50 minutes while PET scans measured brain activity. Two scans were performed: one while the phones were off and a second time while the phones were on. The PET scans were used to detect the effect of the cell phone radiation on the brain's glucose metabolism.

The glucose metabolism affects every area of the brain and is associated with cellular and behavioral brain function. It plays a role in memory and cognition, as well as diseases such as schizophrenia, stroke and diabetes.

The study found that the cell phone radiation did not change the entire brain's function, but significantly affected the regions closest to the antennae. The orbitofrontal cortex and temporal pole, nearest to the ear, had a 7% increase in glucose metabolic activity.

"These results provide evidence that the human brain is sensitive to the effects of RF-EMFs from acute cell phone exposures," the paper concluded. The study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

In an associated editorial, Henry Lai, Ph.D., of the University of Washington, Seattle, and Lennart Hardell, M.D., Ph.D., of University Hospital, Orebro, Sweden, question whether the results of the study suggest the possibility of other effects on brain function, such as neurotransmitter and neurochemical activities. "If so, this might have effects on other organs, leading to unwanted physiological responses. Further studies on biomarkers of functional brain changes from exposure to radiofrequency radiation are definitely warranted."

Nora D. Volkow, M.D., has been the Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) at the National Institutes of Health since 2003. NIDA supports most of the world's research on the health aspects of drug abuse and addiction.

Oral Cancer May be Treated with Proanthocyanidins from Medicinal Plants

Wednesday, March 12, 2008 by: David Gutierrez, staff writer

(NaturalNews) Proanthocyanidins from grapeseed extract may hamper the growth of oral cancer cells, according to a recent study published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

Proanthocyanidins are chemicals in the flavonoid family, naturally occurring in the seeds and skins of grapes (including red wine), pine bark, green and black tea, and berries including bilberries, cranberries, chokeberries and black currant berries. They have been shown to act as antioxidants and protect against DNA damage from tobacco, as well as to be selectively toxic to various forms of cancer cells, including breast, gastric, lung and prostate cancers. They have also been shown to retard the growth of breast, colon, oral and prostate cancers.

Researchers tested proanthocyanidins derived from grapeseed extract on cell lines of both oral and cervical cancer in the laboratory. They found that the chemical significantly slowed the growth of both cervical and oral cancers, but that the effect was greater on oral cancers. The effect was dose-dependent, meaning that larger doses of the extract led to slower cancer growth.

Because a particular strain of human papillomavirus, HPV 16, has previously been shown to drive the proliferation of oral cancer cells, the researchers also tested the extract against such accelerated cell lines. The grapeseed extract proanthocyanidins were found to significantly reduce the growth of the HPV-stimulated oral cancer cells.

In addition, the researchers reported preliminary evidence that the extract may encourage cell death among both cervical and oral cancers.

The researchers hailed their work as an important step in developing alternative cancer treatments. "Standard chemotherapies and radiation treatment, frequently used to treat oral cancer patients, often have harsh and severe side effects that include tissue damage and malfunction," the researchers wrote. "The discovery and validation of novel treatments and prevention strategies, lacking these harmful side effects, is one of our main short-term goals."

"This research shows that the natural medicines in berries works as an effective replacement for chemotherapy in many cancers," added consumer health advocate Mike Adams, author of the book The 7 Laws of Nutrition. "People who eat fresh, raw berries on a daily basis are greatly reducing their risk of ever being diagnosed with breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer and other forms of cancer."

"But what's really astonishing today," Adams added, "is that oncologists remain nutritionally illiterate and have zero knowledge about anti-cancer foods and herbs. Thus, millions of people are harmed each year with chemotherapy chemicals that are, in reality, long outdated and largely ineffective. The entire conventional cancer industry is a grand marketing scam that only seeks to profit from disease rather than actually curing it."

The Truth Can Set You Free

by Rev. James Dunn

John 8:31-32 ( KJV ) 31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

If the truth sets us free then why are there so many people who know the truth and are still in bondage? They are stuck in a dead religion, their marriage is falling apart, addictions are common place etc… Even within Bible preaching churches we find these problems. Where is the freedom that Jesus is speaking of?

Truth is a powerful thing if believed, accepted and practiced. It can bring repentance and change lives but if ignored it is powerless in our lives. You may be driving down the highway when your spouse tells you that you are going the wrong way but you do not believe them and continue driving. In a few minutes you notice a sign that confirms that you are heading in the wrong direction. You were given that same information earlier but you chose to ignore it, the truth didn’t change but it did not benefit you because you chose not to believe it and change your course.

Accepting truth in our lives can be as difficult as accepting Christ as our savior. It can be humbling at times and requires us to admit that we have been wrong and need to repent and change our direction.

In regards to our health it is no different. Truth may come to us from many different sources but it is still truth. It may come to you from a child who has learned in school how dangerous it is for you to smoke and asks you to stop because they love you. What do you do with these truths? If you would stop and consider all the truths in this one act by your child, that they love you, they are concerned for your health, they have your best interest in mind, they are questioning your love for them because you continue to hurt yourself which in turn is hurting them. Do you ignore these powerful truths and continue in this selfish behavior? If so the truth has not set you free because you have not allowed it to do so.

In the area of weight loss and the problems we have with obesity and the ensuing health problems it can cause will you allow the truth to set you free?

Here are some Bible verses that will give you truth that can set you free if you will believe it, accept them and then practice them:

Romans 8:15-16 ( KJV ) 15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

Do you know Christ as your savior? If so, then you are God’s son or daughter. If given the privilege to raise a child of God, like Mary was given, what would you feed him? Would his health be important to you? You have been given that responsibility in yourself. God loves you and want what is best for you. Does it not hurt earthly parents when children are participating in self destructive behaviors? What do you think God thinks and feels when his children hurt themselves with food, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes etc…?

Philippians 4:13 ( KJV ) 13I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

When it comes to eating healthy I hear one excuse more than any other, it is said in many different ways but basically it is: “I am just not strong enough to give up my junk food.” How do we tell people that God can free them from drugs and alcohol when we say that He cannot free us from junk food?

What will you do with the truth found in the Bible? What will you do with the truth given to us from our doctors? I hope you will believe it, accept it, and begin to practice it. Take a step of faith today and take back your body and your health.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ( KJV ) 19What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

- Rev. James Dunn
