Mysterious E. coli outbreak spreads to five states – media barely covers it because there’s no vaccine to push on people

As an E. coli outbreak ravages across state lines, the media has largely been silent. Reports on this plague of food-borne illness are few and far between, even though over 100 people have already been infected. Where are the warnings and the public outcry? When even one child has measles, there is a media frenzy about vaccination and the alleged health apocalypse that will soon strike if we don't fall in line, roll up our sleeves and get injected. The CDC isn't even suggesting that people limit their ground beef consumption - even though investigators believe it to be the source of infection. Both illnesses can be contagious - and only one of them is being spread through a contaminated food supply. Instead of even giving the E. coli outbreak the time of day, it appears the pro-vaccine media has...

Sugary drinks tied to shorter life span

"The optimal intake of these drinks is zero," said one expert. "They have no health benefits." Drinking sugary beverages is associated with a slightly increased risk for early death, a new study has found. Researchers used data from two large continuing health studies begun in the 1980s that include more than 118,000 men and women. Among many other health, behavioral and diet characteristics, the researchers collected data about their consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages, including noncarbonated fruit punches, lemonades and other sugary fruit drinks. ...

SOTT FOCUS: Glyphosate Use is Far Worse Than We Could Imagine

As new studies continue to point to a direct link between the widely-used glyphosate herbicide and various forms of cancer, the agribusiness lobby fights ferociously to ignore or discredit evidence of human and other damage. A second US court jury case just ruled that Monsanto, now a part of the German Bayer AG, must pay $ 81 million in damages to plaintiff Edwin Hardeman who contracted non-Hodgkin's lymphoma cancer. The ruling and a line-up of another 11,000 pending cases in US courts going after the effects of glyphosate, have hit Bayer AG hard with the company announcing several thousand layoffs as its stock price plunges. In a trial in San Francisco the jury was unanimous in their verdict that Monsanto Roundup weed-killer, based on glyphosate, had been responsible for Hardeman's cancer. His attorneys stated, "It is clear from Monsanto's actions...

Half of Western Australian health workers refuse flu vaccination

As health officials prepare to promote flu season jabs for West Australians, new figures show only half of all health workers caring for our sickest patients get vaccinated. Department of Health figures show that 50.4 per cent of nurses, doctors and other health workers were vaccinated last year against the deadly influenza virus. That figure was only 4.8 per cent higher than in 2017 despite an effort by health bosses to increase the rate through an initiative to force workers to "actively decline" vaccinations. The new rules meant that any workers refusing to be vaccinated had to explain why they were declining. ...

New evidence shows dandelion root causes cancer cells to ‘destroy themselves’

Here in North America it seems as though we have become obsessed with the idea of having a lush, perfectly green yard to show off to our neighbors. But what we likely don't realize is that we could be killing off something that has not only some amazing medicinal uses, but also the potential to kill cancer cells. Researchers from the University of Windsor, Canada have been given over $200,000 in grant money to perform an elaborate study on the effects of using dandelion roots to treat cancer. The leaves, flowers, and roots of dandelions have long been used in traditional medicine to treat digestive issues and urinary tract infections, and also to cleanse the liver. The dandelion is actually loaded with vitamins and minerals such as: A, C, D, E and B complex, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, manganese,...

The WHO uses common sense and withdraws its support for plant based planetary health diet

The World Health Organization has backed out of sponsoring an event promoting a radical diet that drastically cuts back on meat. The UN body planned to support the launch event of the scientific group behind the controversial 'planetary health diet', dismissed as 'nanny-state' madness. Scientists say its adoption is vital to feed the world's booming population without destroying the environment and would improve the health of millions. But the WHO stopped sponsoring the event following criticism there is 'no scientific justification' for everyone in the world to adopt a standard diet. The British Medical Journal first reported the WHO had dropped out of the EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, Health event in Switzerland. ...

Choline and TMAO: Eggs still don’t cause heart disease

A 2013 study by published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) has proposed a new link between eggs and coronary heart disease (CHD) that doesn't involve cholesterol. A team of researchers, led by Dr. Stanley Hazen, showed that dietary choline - a nutrient found largely in eggs, beef liver, and other animal foods - is metabolized by bacteria in our gut and then converted by the liver into TMAO. They demonstrated this with a "choline challenge:" feeding volunteers two large hard-boiled eggs (with approximately 250 mg of choline each) along with 250 mg of supplemental choline that was tagged with a heavy isotope. The isotope acts like a chemical "label" that allowed the researchers to track what happened to the choline after it was ingested. Their data did indeed show an increase in both labeled TMAO and total...

The health benefits of passing gas (discreetly of course)

Ever been in a situation where passing wind is going to be hugely embarrassing and you've had to hold in a fart? Let's face it - we all have. Trying to hold it in leads to a build up of pressure and major discomfort. A build up of intestinal gas can trigger abdominal distension, with some gas reabsorbed into the circulation and exhaled in your breath. Holding on too long means the build up of intestinal gas will eventually escape via an uncontrollable fart. The research is not clear on whether the rise in pressure in your rectum increases your chance of developing a condition called diverticulitis, where small pouches develop in the gut lining and become inflamed - or whether it doesn't matter at all. What is flatus? Flatus, farts and breaking wind refer to intestinal gases that enter...

Measles hysteria: New York City declares public health emergency over recent outbreaks

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday declared a public health emergency in a heavily Orthodox Jewish section of Brooklyn amid a growing measles outbreak. As part of the declaration, people living in select zip codes of Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood who have not been vaccinated against measles and may have been exposed to the highly-contagious virus will now be required to get the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. Comment: Enforced by whom? The same people who are preventing kids in this community from going to shopping malls? "There's no question that vaccines are safe, effective and life-saving," de Blasio said in a statement. "I urge everyone, especially those in affected areas, to get their MMR vaccines to protect their children, families and communities." A total of 285 cases of measles have been confirmed in New York City's Orthodox Jewish community...
