Mom Age 44 Cured Deadly Breast Cancer With CBD Oil, Refused Chemo

Breast cancerBy Heather Callaghan

Dee Mani, Age 44, Cured Triple Negative Breast Cancer – the deadliest form –  in 5 Months With CBD Oil After Refusing Chemo

Another UK patient is turning heads with another amazing testimony regarding their positive use of cannabis oil, or, CBD oil, which does not contain the psychoactive compounds that get you “high.”

Daily Mail reports:

A mother-of-two claims she has cured her aggressive breast cancer by taking one drop of cannabis oil every day.

Dee Mani, 44, refused chemotherapy when she was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer – deemed the deadliest form – and instead opted to try CBD.

Doctors gave her the all-clear just five months after she opted for the oil, which is derived from cannabis but doesn’t cause a high.
Ms Mani, from Birmingham, found a lump in her breast in March 2017 and soon after was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Of course, her doctors offered her chemotherapy which is standard medical treatment. However, Dee refused because it failed to keep her sister alive. She decided to break out on her own and studied alternative medicine. That’s when she found out about cannabis oil and its accompanying claims.

In the UK, CBD oil is often sold as a supplement because the rules are a little murky, however, CBD oil is presumably allowed to be prescribed though it’s unlikely to be prevalent. In fact, the first Briton ever was only recently prescribed medical marijuana(different from CBD oil) to relieve deadly seizures.

She then found a local supplier which costing £22 ($34) a month and started taking the “revolting” cannabis oil once every evening. It bears noting that she also cleaned up her diet and began meditation. By August she was given the “all-clear” by her doctors.

She said:

Because of what happened to my sister, there was no way I was having chemo or radiotherapy.

At first when I spoke to the doctor I agreed to everything I was told, I said I’d have one year worth of chemotherapy but then I did my research.

After finding out about cannabis oil I started to put one drop into a capsule every night and take it before bed.

Within four months I believe that I cured myself and then when I was given the all clear, I knew it was the cannabis that cured me.

Alongside curing my cancer, it’s helped me with my insomnia, my allergy to dust and the pain in my back from having slipped discs.

Daily Mail cont.:

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of more than 80 cannabinoids, natural compounds found in the marijuana plant.

Extracted from the plant as a mineral-rich oil, it is usually bottled with a dropper – but also comes in the form of chewing gum, soap or as a vape oil for e-cigarettes.

It has no side effects, either, and is not addictive.

It has been reported to help people with epilepsy, rheumatism, migraines, psoriasis, acne, multiple sclerosis and depression.

Crucially, cannabidiol oil does not contain any THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis. In other words, CBD does not get you high.

Mani, who is still cancer-free, continues to take CBD oil each night. She has written about her journey in a new book called My Way.

Last year, a Scottish woman astonished the world when she cured her deadly brain tumor using CBD oil.

Kyrgyzstan To Switch To 100 Percent Organic Agriculture

KyrgyzstanSPECIAL REPORT by  Heather Callaghan

Kyrgyzstan Parliament just announced its 10-year plan to phase out all non-organic farming and switch to 100 percent organic agriculture. The country that relies heavily on its agriculture has put the final nail in the coffin of Big GMO.

Dastanbek Djumabekov, the Chairman of the Jogorku Kenesh (Kyrgyzstan’s Parliament), has directed the government to implement the 100% organic agricultural plan over the next 10 years. The country plans to only use natural fertilizers in the future.

Kyrgyzstan is only the second country in the entire world to implement a 100% organic agriculture plan. Bhutan is the first, more on that in a second. Additionally, Kyrgyzstan virtually kicked all GMOs to the curb in 2014 – keep reading.

Living in an Organic Paradise

Remember when organic food wasn’t differentiated by the special term “organic”? Remember when it was just called “food”? That’s what Kyrgyzstan is trying to achieve. An organic farming paradise that is actually just a reprisal of traditional farming and nutritional food.

The Central Asian country, nestled in between China and Kazakhstan, is encased by mountainous terrain and is apart of the historic Silk Road. The agricultural sector is one of the largest economic sectors for Kyrgyzstan and makes up around 40% of its 6 million population.

In fact, a lot of the farms have already been growing fruits and vegetables without chemicals, so why not make it official?

Azernews reported:

Speaker of the Parliament Dastanbek Dzhumabekov sent a corresponding instruction to the government. It states that the production of agricultural products throughout the country should become organic within ten years.

Farmers should not use agrochemicals, pesticides (toxic chemicals), synthetic substances, hormones, growth regulators, feed additives, GMOs, antibiotics and additives other than biological preparations for plant protection and organic fertilizers.

Implementation of Krygyzstan’s 100% organic agriculture plan was entrusted to the Committee on Agrarian Policy, Water Resources, Ecology and Regional Development of the Parliament.

24.kg reported:

Earlier, MP Kenzhebek Bokoev said that the specialists of the Ministry of Agriculture should work better, and recommended to help farmers in Talas region with the sale of beans, to hold a campaign in the region about the benefits of this product.

The parliament members blamed the Ministry of Agriculture for the fact that there were still no so-called organic farms in the republic where fruit and vegetables were grown without chemicals.

News of the organic farming campaign could possibly be a sign of the government’s increased concern over health. Coincidentally, the government just announced a plan to put scary, graphic images on alcohol bottles in an effort to curb over-drinking.

Kyrgyzstan 100% Organic Agriculture

Kyrgyzstan Kicked GMOs Out in 2014

Back in 2014, Kyrgyzstan became one of the first countries to banish all GMO products. That is, the country banned genetically engineered crops and also the import and sale of all GMO foods.

Sustainable Pulse reported at the time:

The Kyrgyz Members of Parliament approved the third reading of the bill ‘On the prohibition of cultivation, production, import and sale in Kyrgyzstan of products containing GMOs’.

It was reported that following the adoption of the law there is set to be a GMO testing laboratory built before 2015, where not only food coming from abroad, but also food grown in the country will be checked for GMO contamination. The Ministry of Economy noted that to prohibit the importation of GMO products on the ground will be difficult but possible.

Since then, however, the country laxed on its GMO contamination inspection, but only a little.

A recent report by Sustainable Pulse states:

In 2014 Kyrgyzstan also became one of the first countries in the world to ban the cultivation of GM Crops alongside the import and sale of all GMO products. This ban was later changed to allow for low levels of GMO contamination (0.9%) in imports.

Kyrgyzstan’s 100% Organic Plan Follows Bhutan

Bhutan was the first country in the world to begin implementing a 100% organic agriculture plan. And it may be fully implemented by 2020!

Dr. Appachanda Thimmaiah, associate professor of sustainable living at Maharishi University of Management in Iowa, served as the organic agriculture consultant to Bhutan from 2008 to 2013. He is the reason Bhutan is nearly finished with their 5-year 100% organic plan. Note: the country already utilizes natural and local food but chemicals and industrialization started creeping in during the 1980s. Yet, it looks like they are making a remarkable conversion to organic.

His secret is the utilization of cows and cow urine. When asked about potential criticism of keeping cows and the whole methane release, he replied:

We are talking about the small cows, not the high-yielding milking cows which are fed with grains and genetically modified crops and stuff like that.

We are talking about small, miniature cows which are designed by nature to consume the locally available fodder and convert that to a very nutrient-rich manure. You don’t need a large dairy for organic farming. You just need one cow which is sufficient for 25 to 30 acres.

Incidentally, Bhutan is considered one of the happiest nations in the world according to the Gross National Happiness scale.

Kyrgyzstan 100% Organic Agriculture

If they can make the switch to organic, why can’t we?

Russia, seated above Kazakhstan which is the country bordering Kyrgyzstan to the north, is known for its local and organic dacha gardens that can feed communities with the most fresh, nutrition imaginable. Neither Russia nor Syria have embraced genetically engineered crops. Russia has responded to Western food sanctions by becoming more independent with its country’s agriculture. Even China is starting to encourage “tenant gardens” for residents of apartment complexes.

If Russia, war-torn Syria, Bhutan, and Kyrgyzstan can hang on to organic crops, then why can’t the Western world allow organic crops to thrive?

Because there are too many corporate and entangled interests involved. Yet, we can see that other countries are feeding their nations with homegrown organic and perhaps doing so without some of the price manipulation that goes on in the U.S. economy.

With more support from the U.S. government perhaps through parity farming, and continued consumer demand, we may see more organic crops in America’s future. We applaud the recent developments in Kyrgyzstan with their concrete plan to create a 100 percent organic agriculture to support their nation.

Amazon Fruit Prevented Obesity In Overfed Mammals

obesityScientists are always looking for the most perfect, most exotic superfood that will do away with our belly fat woes. Have they found the holy grail hiding in the Amazon?

Before we blame all obesity on “overfed” overeaters, it’s important to remember that another factor in the obesity epidemic is the uninhibited unleashing of chemicals and other environmental toxicants that industry paid scientists help usher in to the market decades ago.

So, we should look at this new discovery with a healthy skepticism but also as a possible help to battle the bulge, regardless of how it got there.


An extract of camu camu–a fruit native to the Amazon–prevents obesity in mice fed a diet rich in sugar and fat, said researchers at Université Laval and the Quebec Heart and Lung Institute Research Centre. The discovery, which was recently published in the scientific journal Gut, suggests that camu camu phytochemicals could play a leading role in the fight against obesity and metabolic disease.

The chemical composition of camu camu is unique in that it contains 20 to 30 times more vitamin C than kiwis and 5 times more polyphenols than blackberries. “We demonstrated the beneficial health effects of polyphenol-rich berries in previous studies,” explains André Marette, a professor at Université Laval’s Faculty of Medicine and principal investigator for the study.

“That’s what gave us the idea to test the effects of camu camu on obesity and metabolic disease.”

The researchers fed two groups of mice a diet rich in sugar and fat for eight weeks. Half the mice were given camu camu extract each day. At the end of the experiment, weight gain in camu camu-treated mice was 50% lower than that observed in control mice and was similar to the weight gain of mice consuming a low-sugar, low-fat diet. The researchers believe the anti-obesity effect of camu camu could be explained by an increase in resting metabolism in the mice that received the extract.

The researchers also found that camu camu improved glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity and reduced the concentration of blood endotoxins and metabolic inflammation.

“All these changes were accompanied by a reshaping of the intestinal microbiota, including a blooming of A. muciniphila and a significant reduction in Lactobacillus bacteria,” explains Dr. Marette. Transplantation of intestinal microbiota from the camu camu group to germ-free mice lacking an intestinal microbiota temporarily reproduced similar metabolic effects. “Camu camu thus exerts its positive metabolic effects at least in part through the modulation of the gut microbiota,” concludes the researcher.

They now want to examine whether camu camu produces the same metabolic effects in humans and say that the “toxicity of the fruit extract should not pose a problem since it is already commercialized to combat fatigue and stress and stimulate the immune system.”


Say what??

Is This Just Another Weight Loss Gimmick?

While this is all interesting news, we’ve seen previous reports of extracts that were skewed for the purposes of weight loss and we wouldn’t want to keep that trend going. Remember Garcinia Camboda? Or how about raspberry ketones? And there are so-called gurus in various food websites that hawk superfood products when there are also non-exotic and more reasonably priced foods locally that still have some of the same qualities. Also, extracts may not be as effective as taking something whole. Green tea vs green tea extract is a perfect example. It is far more effective to drink green tea than to ever take green tea extract.

Truth be told, it is the bioflavonoids, antioxidants, polyphenols and anthocyanins of fruits and vegetables (and tea) eaten in whole and in generous quantity that produce a balancing effect on the body. Strawberries, for instance, help regulate insulin response and oranges are linked to a marked decrease in macular degeneration.

Anthocyanins are what make blackberries, blueberries and heirloom potatoes purple. They have also shown clear, anti-obesity effects. Antioxidants keep inflammation down and reverse the effects of aging from free-radicals we are exposed to each day. So while it may look like the vitamin content is low in certain fruits, it is actually these other bio-compounds that work together to produce interesting results in the body.

Are People Getting Dumber? Air Pollution Massively Reduces Intelligence

air-pollutionBy Heather CallaghanEditor

Research finds air pollution massively reduces intelligence – but the dumb solution to the problem just may put you out of a car! Keep reading to see how you can protect your intelligence…

Normally when everyone around seems so stupefied, we ask, is there something in the water? But maybe we should look to the air.

A recent Chinese study probed testing scores of 20,000 people and revealed major reductions in intelligent performance in areas where air pollution was high. Although it focuses on China, the lead author says this data applies to everyone, everywhere.

When people worry about environmental toxicants and their effects on human health – air pollution is strangely overlooked. Heavy metals and mercury belch out of industry towers and hydrocarbons spew out of idling vehicles, for instance. But worry and concern usually ebb and flow with alarmist media reports.

And one such report was just released by The Guardian today called, “Air pollution causes ‘huge’ reduction in intelligence, study reveals.”

According to them, high levels of toxic pollution are equivalent to losing an entire year of education – or, a loss of one month’s education for every 1mg rise in pollution over three years.

(We certainly hope that’s not true.) The report says that 95% of the world’s population is breathing unsafe air and that air pollution causes short-term impacts – meaning that on a particularly bad pollution day, it could affect test results for college students.

From The Guardian:

The new work, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, analysed language and arithmetic tests conducted as part of the China Family Panel Studies on 20,000 people across the nation between 2010 and 2014. The scientists compared the test results with records of nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide pollution.

They found the longer people were exposed to dirty air, the bigger the damage to intelligence, with language ability more harmed than mathematical ability and men more harmed than women. The researchers said this may result from differences in how male and female brains work.

[…]

“Polluted air can cause everyone to reduce their level of education by one year, which is huge,” said Xi Chen at Yale School of Public Health in the US, a member of the research team. “But we know the effect is worse for the elderly, especially those over 64, and for men, and for those with low education. If we calculate [the loss] for those, it may be a few years of education.”

[…]

Air pollution causes seven million premature deaths a year but the harm to people’s mental abilities is less well known. A recent study found toxic air was linked to “extremely high mortality” in people with mental disorders and earlier work linked it to increased mental illness in children, while another analysis found those living near busy roads had an increased risk of dementia.

The researchers noted that the damage to intelligence was worse in ages older than age 64. Keep in mind (um – if we still can) that correlation does not equal causation.

However, as Derrick Ho of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University said,

It is because high air pollution can potentially be associated with oxidative stress, neuroinflammation, and neurodegeneration of humans.

Chen goes as far as saying this is not just mere correlation and researchers say they ruled out all other variable factors.

Beware – this information is being used to buttress Agenda 21 policies. For instance, a spokesperson for Doctors Against Diesel said, that the government should “urgently [] remove heavily-polluting vehicles from our roads.”

Excuse me? Has everyone lost their minds? (Oh, wait…)

But seriously, in 2018? We should go backwards instead of innovating non-polluting vehicles? Would you like a policy that bans you from driving?

Of course this news prompted cries for the government(s) to act “urgently” with the convenient oversight that the government regulatory agencies allowed corporations to create new toxicants and release them indiscriminately on the Earth in the first place.

Personal health solution

Since the pollution is creating oxidative and inflammatory stress on the body, it would make sense that one strategy to combat oxidative stress is a diet full of antioxidants (fruits and vegetables!).

Leafy greens and vegetables for instance, are shown to help keep your “crystallized intelligence.” That’s the important education you’ve shored up over a lifetime. And grapes and blueberries combined are a dynamic duo against memory loss and aging.

Of course, I’m not suggesting that diet alone can combat every avenue of toxic substances we encounter each day – but it’s an okay start…

What do you think of this pollution business? Let me know below!

24/7 Work Emails Are Hurting Your Health And Relationships

work emailsBy Heather Callaghan

Bosses call it “work flexibility,” but the expectation to be accessible during non-work hours through our smart devices is really a chaotic (and unpaid) lack of boundaries that hurts the other parts of our lives.

You probably aren’t surprised. Getting work emails 24/7 can suck the life out of life whether you act upon them or not.

That’s not just me saying that. Researchers have definitively proven that the mere presence of work emails in our home-life negatively impacts our health, relationships and non-work life. 

As I said in my article about work productivity hacks, getting hit with work emails on your phone before you even get ready for your job can be a depressing start to your day.

How depressing? Researchers from Lehigh University want you to rethink your relationship with tech because “personal relationships and home life suffer for those tied to their work emails round-the-clock.”

They write:

The study is the first to test the relationship between organizational expectations to monitor work-related electronic communication during non-work hours and the health and relationship satisfaction of employees and their significant others.

In “Killing Me Softly: Electronic Communications Monitoring and Employee and Spouse Well-Being,” researchers report that such expectations are “an insidious stressor that not only increases employee anxiety, decreases their relationship satisfaction and has detrimental effects on employee health, but also that it negatively affects partner (significant other) health and marital satisfaction perceptions,” said Liuba Belkin, associate professor of management at Lehigh University. Belkin co-authored the article with William Becker of Virginia Tech, Samantha A. Conroy of Colorado State University, and Sarah Tuskey, a Virginia Tech doctoral student.

[…]

Regardless of how much time individuals actually spent monitoring and answering work emails outside of work hours, the mere presence of organizational expectations to monitor email outside of work led to employee anxiety and negative effects on well-being, which also affected their partners (spouses/significant others), Belkin said.

Belkin calls it the “spillover effect” and says:

…we demonstrated that these normative expectations for work email monitoring during non-work hours is a significant stressor above and beyond actual workload and time spent on handling it during non-work hours.

This new study, to be published in Academy of Management Best Paper Proceedings “builds upon earlier work by the researchers that examined organizational expectations to monitor email and its effects on employees’ ability to detach from work, emotional exhaustion and work-family balance perceptions.”

For instance, an earlier study called “Exhausted, But Unable to Disconnect: The Impact of Email-Related Organizational Expectations on Work-Family Balance” demonstrated that the email-expectation should be among other well-known job stressors like unreasonable workload.

What are we all to do?

Unfortunately, the only solution that researchers could offer individuals is this vague, catch-all term known as “mindfulness.” And that’s really a lame answer.

Mindfulness is a simple practice, but what is it really? Well, mindful eating is when you put all your consciousness into the act of eating so that you aren’t so disconnected from your food or body. It helps with focus and intuition. I suppose the mindfulness Belkin is referring to is in regards to being mindful at home, in your non-work identity. Frankly, it’s a great life practice, especially if you work from home full-time. BUT – employees shouldn’t have to take responsibility for bad behavior and perform jedi-mind-tricks to keep handling more work at night. That’s like coming across an indentured servant who works 20 hours a day and telling them to try yoga.

As for companies, researchers offer the ideal that non-workplace communications should be limited to the workplace. But they acknowledge that some industries require off-site actions. The researchers propose that employers be upfront about their expectations instead of using unspoken pressure as a means of control.

It’s still an employers’ market so some of the behavior I’ve heard coming from hiring managers is downright ridiculous. Not only are there expectations to be more at the manager’s beck-and-call than a medieval serf, but also there are expectations on employees to use their own funds for company needs. Sometimes they try and pressure people to stay childless because they may fear not having an employee accessible at all times. People really underestimate the spiritual toll that work expectations have on a person – think about how much time we spend at the workplace, anyway!

I worked at a small business that began surveilling all computer activity and doling out write-ups for even one minute of “time-theft.” But the demand for time only worked one way. There was no respect for employee time, not even outside the workplace. This person gave out a phone as a work requirement and then because of the magnanimous “gift” expected that any emails that came in be answered immediately. It’s just my observation, but people who are stuck in the age of dinosaurs (I call them “tyrannical-saurus rexes”) typically run roughshod over their employees, like, for instance, forgetting to pay in a timely manner or scheduling meetings on vacation time. The expectations they demand most from their employees are often their own biggest deficits – and honestly, no one deserves that kind of disrespect.

Honestly, there needs to be more boundary-setting coming from individuals when these expectations rear their ugly heads. In the long-run, the best work comes from refreshed employees anyway. If your employer treats you like cattle, then stampede right out of their and into a job that deserves you.

Seriously, though – Work Less – Your Life Depends On It…

Cops Called To Take Down A Kid’s Lending Library

lending libraryBy Heather Callaghan

We’re fairly certain that Winston Smith of 1984 had more freedom to curl up with a good book than the kids at Point Pleasant Boro, New Jersey.

Nothing says freedom like having police show up to swat the sharing of ideas and banish the written word.

That’s – quite literally – what happened recently to Grace and Peter Hagemeyer when they erected a small book case at the end of their driveway. Despite hundreds of these things popping up all over the country, police are starting to crack down on them at the behest of city code enforcers. The police and city code enforcers always say that there’s one vague, anonymous complaint that – by Jove! – they must investigate immediately.

Police showed up barely a week after the Hagemeyers placed their mailbox library and ordered it be immediately dismantled, because…. there was an alleged complaint.  Unlike when there’s an actual crime taking place, police showed up the day of the complaint to fulfill the bidding of the city. And the next day, city code enforcers did credit to taxpayers by issuing an order for the complete removal of the “structure” within 10 days, in concordance with land-use ordinance, which….wouldn’t you know it – just happens to mention these new lending libraries.

The story from Patch.com says someone called the police on the family, but this writer suspects that it is merely code enforcers sending police to hound such families by making up “the anonymous complaint” because it works. People cow-tow to the almighty complaint. Sadly, police showed up on the day of Hagemeyers’ grand opening of the lending library at their Hardenbergh Avenue home.

Patch reported,

Borough officials told News12 that their hands were tied because someone filed a formal complaint.

“No matter how benign or serious an issue is, if a formal complaint goes in to the police department, they have to act on it,” Point Pleasant Boro Administrator Frank Pannucci Jr. told News12.

The Hagemeyers’ first mistake was in their generosity of spirit. But then they acted on by actually crafting a unique and inviting book box and filling it up with literature that would be better off if were burned in a giant pile – as dangerous ideas always should be before they spread. Last but not least, they were naive in thinking that it would benefit children to have their noses in books instead of being glued to smartphones and tablets. They thought it might help grow their minds, or something.

“We live in a great town, on a friendly street,” Grace had said. “This is the kind of community we should be encouraging.”

It’s a good thing police showed up to scare the freedoms away when they did. By the time they broke up the scene, a few neighborhood kids and a teacher had already benefited by relaxing with a book.

Talk about total anarchy.

Kat Von D In Vax Shaming Firestorm After Declaring She Will Not Vaccinate Unborn Child

Kat Von DBy Heather Callaghan

Kat Von D is an Internet sensation, having been a reality TV star, tattoo artist, makeup guru and musician – just to name a few of the things on her résumé. The 36-year old celebrity garners 12 million likes on Facebook and many adoring Instagramers. Her and her husband, Rafael Reyes, are newlyweds about to give birth to her first child.

With so much influence with millions of fans online, those who are frontrunners for the Vax Agenda are quaking in their boots at the discovery of her firm, non-vaccinestance for her yet-to-be-born child. Therefore, they are attempting to vax shame her so they can create yet another celebrity effigy as an example to all others that they will be shunned if they don’t blindly inject ineffective toxicants into their newborns.

After seeing her recent Instagram and Facebook posts, they must march out like Orcs to paint her as a bad mother.

The headlines are pouring forth, but so are her supporters. Here is what she wanted her fans to know:

I knew the minute we announced our pregnancy that we would be bombarded with unsolicited advice. Some good and some questionable — [but] unsolicited nonetheless. 

I also was prepared for the backlash and criticism we would get if we decided to be open about our personal approach to our pregnancy. My own father flipped out on me when I told him we decided to ditch our doctor and go with a midwife instead. 

If you don’t know what it’s like [to] have people around you think you are ridiculous, try being openly vegan. And, if you don’t know what it’s like to have the entire world openly criticize, judge, throw uninformed opinions, and curse you — try being a pregnant vegan, having a natural, drug-free home birth in water with a midwife and doula, who has the intention of raising a vegan child, without vaccinations.

As for the major flak she anticipated, she had this to say:

I already know what it’s like to make life choices that are not the same as the majority. So your negative comments are not going influence my choices; actual research and educating myself will, which I am diligently doing. 

I knew the minute we announced our pregnancy that we would be bombarded with unsolicited advice. Some good and some questionable – unsolicited none the less. I also was prepared for the backlash and criticism we would get if we decided to be open about our personal approach to our pregnancy. My own Father flipped out on me when I told him we decided to ditch our doctor and go with a midwife instead. If you don’t know what it’s like have people around you think you are ridiculous, try being openly vegan. And, if you don’t know what it’s like to have the entire world openly criticize, judge, throw uninformed opinions, and curse you – try being an openly pregnant vegan on Instagram, having a natural, drug-free home birth in water with a midwife and doula, who has the intention of raising a vegan child, without vaccinations. My point being: I already know what it’s like to make life choices that are not the same as the majority. So your negative comments are not going influence my choices – actual research and educating myself will – which i am diligently doing. This is my body. This is our child. And this is our pregnancy journey. Feel free to follow me on here if you like what I’m about – whether it’s tattooing, lipstick, Animal Rights, sobriety, feminism, ridiculous gothiness, black flower gardening, cats, or my adorable husband. But if you don’t dig a certain something about what I post, i kindly ask that you press the unfollow button and move the fuck on. So before anyone of you feel inspired to tell me how to do this, I would appreciate you keeping your unsolicited criticism to yourself. More importantly, for those who have amazing positive energy to send my way, I will gladly and graciously receive it with love! X

A post shared by Kat Von D (@thekatvond) on 

Kat Von D responds to the haters “my body…our child”

To all the haters – and supporters – she preemptively responds:

Dr. Andrew Moulden: Every Vaccine Produces Harm (Ad)

 

Not only are vaccine pushers calling her selfish, irresponsible and everything else in between – but now she is front page Yahoo News with the big “Anti-vaccination” spotlight beaming her down. Not only is her move being highlighted as a “Vaccine Controversy,” but notice how this video preview literally highlights the words “won’t immunize” in order to sub-consciously make others believe that she’s putting her own child in danger by withholding the only media-recognized form of immunity.

What’s more, there are at least three hate-videos about her on YouTube, now, within mere hours of her post.

Yet, she and her husband have arrived at their choice after studying vaccine ingredients that even doctors are remiss in telling their patients about such as MSG, polysorbates, formaldehyde, aluminum, thimerasol (form of mercury), human and animal organ cells and much, much more…

Many alternative news websites have distanced themselves from vaccine issues hoping to escape the flames of Internet censorship. Believe me, we know it all too well. It is hard to keep standing up and saying something when pharma agendaswield so much power and sway. That’s why we fully applaud and support Kat Von D and her husband in exercising their medical right not to vaccinate despite the massive vax shaming.

Terminal Woman Cured Of Breast Cancer With Own Cells After Chemo Failed

terminal cancer curedBy Heather Callaghan

In the world’s first case, a terminal woman with her life quickly ebbing away was “cured” of breast cancer after chemo failed to stave off the progression.

Thanks to new experimental immunotherapy, using her own cells, her body could finally overcome the cancerous cells.

The new kind of immunotherapy is called adoptive cell transfer and was used on the woman after she had “given up” fighting for her life.

GNN reports:

Judy Perkins, a 52-year-old engineer and mother-of-two from Florida, was given three months to life after several rounds of chemotherapy failed to keep the cancer from spreading to the rest of her body.

“My condition deteriorated a lot towards the end, and I had a tumor pressing on a nerve, which meant I spent my time trying not to move at all to avoid pain shooting down my arm,” Perkins told The Guardian. “I had given up fighting.”

She was then enrolled at the US National Cancer Institute for a new kind of immunotherapy. The treatment used a process called adoptive cell transfer to remove one of the tumors from Perkins’s body and locate all the friendly T cells that were still able to recognize harmful cancer cells.

Once the T cells were identified, they were extracted and multiplied until the scientists had an army of 90 billion cancer-fighting cells which they were then able to inject back into Perkins.

It was mere weeks before she felt the tumors literally shrinking. Soon she was celebrating her recovery by going on a 40-mile hike, something that is daunting even for healthy individuals.

“Experts may call it extended remission but I call it a cure,” she had commented, adding that the recovery felt miraculous.

It is now two years since the treatment and Perkins is still cancer-free.

If you are interested in this therapy, you will want to research into reputable medical universities or hospitals experimenting with adoptive cell transfer.

This process is very similar to using the adult body’s own stem cells, multiplying them and then placing them back into the body. Earlier this year, we reported on the first case of a man having his damaged lung tissue regenerated using his own stem cells. I also mentioned an interview with Mel Gibson about his father, Hutton Gibson, who received stem cells for a medical issue in his early 90s and is now on the brink of his 100th birthday!

Is there a way to regenerate your own stem cells without medical intervention?

There may be. A recent study found that just 24 hours of fasting could boost the regeneration of stem cells in the body. And just 3 days of fasting can reboot your whole immune system.

As far as stem cell therapy goes, you may be interested in a book called, Stem Cell Therapy: A Rising Tide: How Stem Cells Are Disrupting Medicine and Transforming Lives.

Survey Claiming Millennials Like GMOs Ridiculously Biased And Manipulated

By Heather Callaghan

Millennials lead the charge against GMOs and have more in common with their grandparents than their parents’ generation. Millennials are reviving the art of gardening, local food and food preservation so it shouldn’t be surprising to find thousands of them at the March Against Monsanto. Yet a new survey is attempting to influence the public that it is millennials who love GMOs.

A new survey, according to the Telegraph, declared that “Millennials ‘have no qualms about GM crops’ unlike older generation”. Most people read headlines and headlines like this cast a major influence. All the propaganda is right in the title. First, it is falsely claiming that millennials have embraced genetic engineering of their food. Second, by mentioning the “older generation” and claiming they are against GMOs, the survey casts a subtle message that if you don’t accept GMOs you are stodgy and archaic, instead of hip and open-minded like the supposed millennials.

But is that what the survey was about at all??

GM Watch reports on the survey commissioned by the GM industry body, the Agricultural Biotechnology Council (ABC), carried out by the polling firm Populus. At first, the actual survey wasn’t made available with any links, which means journalists wrote articles without even checking. But then….:

…perhaps in response to queries from skeptical members of the public, Populus put the survey tables online, under “New Farming Techniques“.

It turns out that the skeptics were right. The questions were appallingly biased.

All the questions in the poll were preceded by some information: “Technology is increasingly being developed to tackle the challenges of 21st century farming and food security. Innovative techniques have been designed to provide the best possible data collection and management to allow greater precision across the food production process. The benefits of these techniques include: allowing more targeted weed, pest and disease control, reducing energy usage, delivering higher yields and overall allowing for more sustainable and productive farming. To what extent would you support or oppose the following farming techniques?”

This clearly is intended to suggest that all of the techniques people were then asked about deliver some or all of these benefits, but in the case of GM and gene editing, that is a matter of huge public controversy. So the introduction cannot by any stretch of the imagination be seen as a neutral piece of information.

Only after being given this information were people asked, in the GM question, what they thought about “Plant breeding using gene editing to make crops more nutritious, pest and disease resistant”.

Not only is the question biased but it is strange that the answers are interpreted as sweeping, uncritical support for GMO crops among millennials. “No qualms?” There was no room for qualms in the survey!

GM Watch says that Populus – a member of the British Polling Council – violated rules for conducting polls. A Council stipulation states that complete wording of the question asked must be made public the same time the survey results come out – not several days later, in this instance.

The Council says that a reputable organization ideally would not contain any serious bias in their questionnaire and “introduce bias into a survey by means of question wording.”

By these standards, the survey should be held to the light for what appears to be some sneaky info maneuvering.

What would have happened if a decidedly anti-gmo group had manipulated data and presented it to the media the way that Populus has done?

Common Cleaner Releases 146 Contaminants Into The Air

By Heather Callaghan

Have you heard? Cleaning is a life-saving form of exercise, but using cleaning sprays has the same effect on lungs as smoking 20 cigarettes a day. Household cleaners are also known to decrease reproduction in mice studies.

But what you may not know is that the most ubiquitous counter cleaner has over a hundred unlisted ingredients, many of which are toxic or carcinogenic!

That’s right. Comet Disinfectant Powder Cleanser, a product perceived as safe and used in schools, homes and churches everywhere, is quite the toxic bomb. We presume that Comet is in most janitorial supplies due to its ability to bleach, while its abrasive action scrubs unsightly mess away. The fact that it is sold in every grocery store and has only a few ingredients listed on the container lulls the public into thinking it is safe.

Comet powder contains 146 ingredients and releases over a hundred toxicants into the air while in use.

In 2009, Environmental Working Group (EWG) released a report called Greener School Cleaning Supplies. They tested 21 cleaners in California schools and found that Comet cleaner emitted the most air pollutants of any cleanser.

EWG wrote:

Ordinary school cleaning supplies can expose children to multiple chemicals linked to asthma, cancer, and other documented health problems and to hundreds of other air contaminants that have never been tested for safety, a study by the Environmental Working Group shows. Laboratory tests done for EWG found that a typical assortment of cleaning products released 457 distinct chemicals into the air.

Lax labeling requirements mean that schools often don’t know what they’re purchasing. Many would be alarmed to learn that when used as directed, Comet Disinfectant Powder Cleanser, a product commonly used in both schools and private homes, released more than 100 air contaminants, including chloroform, benzene, and formaldehyde.

In their PDF report, they write (page 2):

Statewide, cleaning supplies release 32 tons of contaminants into the air each day. Some of the products tested are widely used in American households, including:

  • Comet Disinfectant Powder Cleanser, which emitted 146 contaminants when used as directed, including formaldehyde, benzene, chloroform and four other chemicals identified by the state of California as causing cancer or reproductive harm.

Formaldehyde, benzene and chloroform can cause cancer, and formaldehyde by itself is implicated in causing asthma. EWG classified Comet as one of the “Worst Cleaners” because it released the most air pollutants out of the cleaners tested.

Why Aren’t the Ingredients Listed?

Comet powder contains 60-100% calcium carbonate. Other ingredients listed are: Calcium Hydroxide, fragrance, Green 7, Sodium Carbonate, Sodium Linear Alkylbenzenesulfonate, Trichloro-s-triazinetrione (bleach), Trichloroisocyanuric acid.

Then there are the MSDS listings. The breakdown is as follows: Calcium Carbonate 60-100%, Sodium Carbonate 7-13%, Calcium Hydroxide 1-5%, Sodium Dichloro-s Triazinetrione Dihydrate 1-5%.

MSDS stands for Material Safety Data Sheet. But, not all ingredients are listed on an MSDS.

That means only 8 ingredients are listed!

In all, air testing revealed a total 457 chemicals emitted into schools by the 21 cleaners tested. As of 2009 only about 9 schools attempted to adopt “greener” cleaning. Unfortunately, “greener” doesn’t always mean safer for human health.

What Can I Do?

If you’d like to stop using so many industrial chemicals in the home, here are a few ideas.

A popular natural “comet” recipe is:

  • 1 part baking soda (about $.45 per box at Aldi!)
  • 1 part salt (essential oils optional)

Stir with fork and store in jar. Old Parmesan cheese bottles are great to store this natural cleaner.

You may add, or use Washing soda, or borax insteadWashing soda can remove coffee stains from mugs without scratching them. Just be careful as these can be irritating. Here is a recipe that combines all the ingredients and comes out to $0.6 an ounce. The addition of peroxide to the baking soda/salt recipe can help, but be sure to read directions here.

Another great alternative to chemical abrasive cleaners is the magic eraser.”
