The Medical Miracle You'll Get Arrested for Using

The Medical Miracle You'll Get Arrested for Using.  Another, typical interference from the FDA and the Feds to regulate, control and dictate every little bit of our lives by denying people with horrid illnesses and pain management issues the use of a natural, herbal substance.  Isn't anyone else sick to death of the government's absolute control of the population?

What are the Medical Uses for Marijuana?
"In order to really comprehend the movement behind medical marijuana, you must first understand that this herb truly does show outstanding promise as a medicinal plant. The studies conducted so far show significant potential for the use of cannabis in the prevention and treatment of a wide range of health conditions, including cancer.
For instance, in 2009 a study in the journal Cancer Prevention Research found that marijuana smokers have a lower risk of head and neck cancers than non-marijuana smokers.
Harvard researchers also found that THC in marijuana cuts tumor growth in lung cancer while significantly reducing its ability to spread. There is also a wealth of research linking marijuana with pain relief and improved sleep. In one recent study, just three puffs of marijuana a day for five days helped those with chronic nerve pain to relieve pain and sleep better.
Americans for Safe Access also has links to research studies suggesting that cannabis may help in the treatment or prevention of Alzheimer's disease and cancer, while the International Association for Cannabis as Medicine highlights the following medical uses:
Nausea Vomiting Anorexia Cachexia (Wasting Syndrome)
Spasticity Movement Disorders Pain Glaucoma
Epilepsy Asthma Dependency and Withdrawal Psychiatric Symptoms
Autoimmune Diseases Inflammation High Blood Pressure Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Lastly, the research site lists over 126 potential therapeutic applications for marijuana in disease prevention and treatment, further illustrating just how voluminous the scientific evidence really is in support of the medical marijuana movement.

Your Body is Hard-Wired to Respond to Cannabinoids in the Marijuana Plant

There are more than 60 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids in the marijuana plant. Cannabinoids interact with your body by way of naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors embedded in cell membranes throughout your body. There are cannabinoid receptors in your brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, immune system and more; both the therapeutic and psychoactive properties of marijuana occur when a cannabinoid (such as the THC produced by the cannabis plant) activates a cannabinoid receptor.
Your body also has naturally occurring endocannabinoids that stimulate your cannabinoid receptors and produce a variety of important physiologic processes, far beyond that of the traditional "highs" associated with THC.
What is amazing is that your body is actually hard-wired to respond to cannabinoids through this unique cannabinoid receptor system; research is still ongoing on just how extensive their impact is on our health, but to date it's known that cannabinoid receptors play an important role in many body processes, including metabolic regulation, cravings, pain, anxiety, bone growth, and immune function.
A report by Dr. Manuel Guzman in the journal of Nature Reviews suggests that these active components of cannabis and their derivatives are potential anti-cancer agents:
" … these compounds [cannabinoids] have been shown to inhibit the growth of tumour cells in culture and animal models by modulating key cell-signaling pathways. Cannabinoids are usually well tolerated, and do not produce the generalized toxic effects of conventional chemotherapies."
A report by the American College of Physicians (ACP) further notes that:
"Marijuana has been smoked for its medicinal properties for centuries. It was in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia until 1942 when it was removed because federal legislation made the drug illegal … Still, the overwhelming number of anecdotal reports on the therapeutic properties of marijuana sparks interest from scientists, health care providers, and patients.
Over the past 20 years, researchers have discovered cannabinoid receptors: CB1, which mediates the central nervous system (CNS), and CB2, which occurs outside the CNS and is believed to have anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive activity.
These scientific developments have revealed much information supporting expansion of research into the potential therapeutic properties of marijuana and its cannabinoids."

According to a report by Americans for Safe Access:
"In the past three decades, there has been an explosion of international studies designed to investigate the therapeutic value of cannabis (marijuana).
However, drastic restrictions on research in the U.S. have meant that few clinical trials are being conducted domestically and none are being conducted as part of a sponsor-funded drug development plan aimed at obtaining Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approval for the prescription use of the botanical plant itself.
Meanwhile, research teams in Great Britain, Spain, Italy, Israel, and elsewhere have confirmed - through case studies, basic research, pre-clinical, and preliminary clinical investigations - the medical value of cannabis … "
Of course, in the United States marijuana is so heavily controlled that even if you wanted to conduct a clinical trial, you would have a hard time getting a supply for research purposes. As the Safe Access report states:
" … the federal monopoly on the supply of cannabis has fundamentally limited FDA-approved clinical research to investigate its safety and efficacy in controlling symptoms of serious and chronic illnesses.
In the United States, research is stalled, and in some cases blocked, by a complicated federal approval process, restricted access to research-grade cannabis, and the refusal of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to license private production of cannabis for use exclusively in federally approved research
It is possible to avoid these risks entirely by either using cannabis in hemp oil form or, as many medical marijuana patients advocate, by using a vaporizer. The device allows for the ingestion of marijuana without any combustion byproducts, eliminating rightful concerns about the cumulative harms associated with smoking it. It is also possible to minimize harm by eating marijuana (along with some fat, as THC is fat-soluble and will not dissolve in water).
It is important to note that in the United States today using marijuana for any reason is still considered an illegal activity that can result in serious legal consequences, including imprisonment.
Sadly, it is not the scientific evidence -- but rather politics and an increasingly insatiable privatized industrial-prison complex in need of more drug-convicted "criminals" -- which maintains the stranglehold on our freedom to choose wild growing plants as our medicine rather than soley FDA-approved drugs.
I think Willie Nelson said it well in the following quote:
I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?"
Read the rest of this highly informative article by Dr. Mercola here:

 Miracle You'll Get Arrested for Using.  Yep, no matter how dire the consequences, or how very ill a person is, there is always some governmental agency telling people that they no longer have the right of choice to use what they may to help themselves survive and even exist.

BPA Blood Levels Spike by 1,200 Percent After Eating Canned Foods

BPA Blood Levels Spike by 1,200 Percent After Eating Canned Foods.   I knew this about plastic water bottles and the BPA problem, but this disturbing information that canned foods are so toxic because of the BPA lining of the cans makes me heartsick.

Read More At this link below:

"New research from Harvard University has found that eating canned soup can spike your urinary bisphenol A (BPA) levels by 1,200 percent compared to fresh soup. Described as “one of the first to quantify BPA levels in humans after ingestion of canned foods,” the study examines the volume in which cancer-causing BPA contaminates canned goods across the world.


The research appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association November issue. BPA of course has been linked to countless diseases, including breast cancer and fertility defects that can lead to infertility. In fact 130 studies have been conducted on the link between BPA and breast cancer alone — all of which confirmed the relationship."

BPA Content of Canned Foods may Surpass Plastic Products

Harvard researchers not only identified the massive amount of BPA present in canned foods, but they also compared the content to BPA levels present in water bottles and other plastic containers. What they found was quite shocking: it appears that canned foods may be presenting an even greater risk to your health than many plastics due to the extremely high BPA content. This is also particularly true due to the widespread usage of canned goods, which are a staple in the diet of many individuals worldwide."
“We’ve known for a while that drinking beverages that have been stored in certain hard plastics can increase the amount of BPA in your body,” said lead author Jenny Carwile, a doctoral student in the Department of Epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health. ”This study suggests that canned foods may be an even greater concern, especially given their wide use.”
Read More:

"...In order to avoid exposing yourself to such high levels of BPA, preparing your own meals with fresh ingredients and avoiding food cans altogether is the best option. However, you can also contact individual brands and ask if their cans contain or are lined with BPA. If you have been eating from cans or plastic containers like the majority of consumers, there is also a natural solution. There exists a number of effective and free ways to rid the presence of BPA from your body, using health-promoting substances."

Little wonder that the population is becoming increasingly ill of so many man-made causes that it presents  a challenge for each of us to find foods that are pure and wholesome and not loaded with BPA.  Glass jars may be the only answer to canned foods.

The First Thing to do When a Cold or Flu Strikes - Vitamin D and Zinc

The First Thing to do When a Cold or Flu Strikes.  Yay!  Common sense from a doctor!   This article by Dr. Joseph Mercola is absolutely excellent. It provides you with a significant amount of very important information to help you prevent or deal with colds or flu.  The season is here.

Advice from this critical care registered nurse:  ALWAYS Wash Your Hands  BEFORE   putting anything in your mouth to eat.  Do NOT share food, drinks, so on where viruses can be "shared" as well.  ALWAYS Wash Your Hands after touching doorknobs, using the toilet, and any form of social contact such as kissing, handshaking and so forth.  Air borne viruses love, love, love saliva and nice moist nasal tissues.    Make sure your kids understand this as well and that their teachers have a clue.

  • "The “gold standard” of scientific reviews has repeatedly found that there is little or no evidence backing flu vaccines as an effective flu prevention strategy

  • Evidence is mounting in support of vitamin D as a potent cold and flu prevention strategy. Optimizing your vitamin D levels through regular sun exposure is preferred, as it imparts health benefits beyond what you can get from oral vitamin D supplements

  • Colds and flu’s are the result of a viral assault on an impaired immune system. They are not an inevitable result of viral exposure alone

  • A number of factors influence your immune function, including diet, well-chosen supplements, exercise, and proper sleep

  • Effective all-natural cold and flu treatments include: zinc, green tea, vitamin C, mushrooms, chicken soup, and more


    What Causes Colds and Influenzas?

    Both colds and various influenzas are caused by a wide variety of viruses (not bacteria).
    While the two ailments typically affect your respiratory tract, there are some differences between them.
    Common symptoms of a 'regular cold' include runny nose, congestion, cough, and sore throat. The symptoms of the flu tend to be far more severe, as the influenza viruses are capable of causing severe lung infection, pneumonia and even respiratory failure. They also tend to affect your joints—hence that allover achy feeling.
    The most common way these viruses are spread is via hand-to-hand contact. For instance, someone with a cold blows their nose then shakes your hand or touches surfaces that you also touch. However, the key to remember is that just being exposed to a cold virus does not mean that you're destined to catch a cold.
    If your immune system is operating at its peak, it should actually be quite easy for you to fend off the virus without ever getting sick. Ditto for flu viruses. If your immune system is impaired, on the other hand, they can easily take hold in your body. So, it's important to understand that the reason you catch a cold or flu is because your immune system is impaired. It's not an inevitable event based on exposure alone.
    Lifestyle factors that can depress your immune system, alone or in combination, include:
    • Eating too much sugar, particularly fructose, and too many grains. The average person is consuming about 75 grams of fructose per day, and when fructose is consumed at that level it can devastate your immune system. One of the ways it does this is by unbalancing your gut flora. Sugar is 'fertilizer' for pathogenic bacteria, yeast, and fungi that can set your immune system up for an assault by a respiratory virus. Most people don't realize that 80 percent of your immune system actually lies in your gastrointestinal tract. That's why controlling your sugar intake is CRUCIAL for optimizing your immune system.
      It would be wise to limit your total fructose consumption to below 25 grams a day if you're in good health, or below 15 grams a day if you have high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, or are insulin resistant.
    • Vitamin D deficiency, as a result of insufficient sun exposure
    • Not getting enough rest
    • Insufficient exercise
    • Using ineffective strategies to address emotional stressors

    Shocking LACK of Evidence Supporting Flu Vaccines

    While the flu vaccine is touted as the "best" way to avoid catching the seasonal flu, what many fail to realize is that the science available actually does NOT support this conclusion. In essence, it's wishful thinking that is unsupported by scientific evidence.
    Take the Cochrane Database Review for example—which is the gold standard for assessing the effectiveness of common medical interventions—as discussed here in a recent article on Here are five Cochrane Database Reviews, published between 2006 and 2010, completely decimating the claim that flu vaccinations are the best course of action to prevent the flu.
    1. A large-scale, systematic review of 51 studies, published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in 2006, found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo in children under two. The studies involved 260,000 children, age 6 to 23 months.
    2. Two years, later, in 2008, another Cochrane review again concluded that "little evidence is available" that the flu vaccine is effective for children under the age of two. Even more disturbingly, the authors stated that: "It was surprising to find only one study of inactivated vaccine in children under two years, given current recommendations to vaccinate healthy children from six months old in the USA and Canada. If immunization in children is to be recommended as a public health policy, large-scale studies assessing important outcomes and directly comparing vaccine types are urgently required."
    3. Then, last year, Cochrane published the following bombshell conclusion:
      "Influenza vaccines have a modest effect in reducing influenza symptoms and working days lost. There is no evidence that they affect complications, such as pneumonia, or transmission.
      WARNING: This review includes 15 out of 36 trials funded by industry (four had no funding declaration). An earlier systematic review of 274 influenza vaccine studies published up to 2007 found industry funded studies were published in more prestigious journals and cited more than other studies independently from methodological quality and size. Studies funded from public sources were significantly less likely to report conclusions favorable to the vaccines.
      The review showed that reliable evidence on influenza vaccines is thin but there is evidence of widespread manipulation of conclusions and spurious notoriety of the studies. The content and conclusions of this review should be interpreted in light of this finding." [Emphasis mine.]
    4. Last year, Cochrane also reviewed the available evidence with regards to protecting the elderly, and the results were equally abysmal. The authors concluded that: "The available evidence is of poor quality and provides no guidance regarding the safety, efficacy or effectiveness of influenza vaccines for people aged 65 years or older."
    5. They also reviewed whether or not vaccinating health care workers can help protect the elderly patients with whom they work. In conclusion, the authors state that: "[T]here is no evidence that vaccinating health care workers prevents influenza in elderly residents in long-term care facilities

    Vitamin D May Help You Recover Quicker… and Prevent a Cold or Flu in the First Place
    Supplements that Send Pathogens Packin'

    Supplements can be beneficial for colds, but I believe they should be used only as an adjunct to other healthy dietary and lifestyle measures discussed in this article. Some of the more helpful options for cold and flu--above and beyond vitamin D--are:
    • Vitamin C: A very potent antioxidant; use a natural form such as acerola, which contains associated micronutrients. You can take several grams every hour till you are better unless you start developing loose stools
    • Oregano Oil: The higher the carvacrol concentration, the more effective it is. Carvacrol is the most active antimicrobial agent in oregano oil.
    • Propolis: A bee resin and one of the most broad-spectrum antimicrobial compounds in the world; propolis is also the richest source of caffeic acid and apigenin, two very important compounds that aid in immune response.
    • A tea made from a combination of elderflower, yarrow, boneset, linden, peppermint and ginger; drink it hot and often for combating a cold or flu. It causes you to sweat, which is helpful for eradicating a virus from your system.
    • Olive leaf extract: Ancient Egyptians and Mediterranean cultures used it for a variety of health-promoting uses and it is widely known as a natural, non-toxic immune system builder. 

    Vitamin D is an amazingly effective antimicrobial agent, producing 200 to 300 different antimicrobial peptides in your body that kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. So optimizing your levels will not only help send a cold or flu virus packing … it will prevent them from invading your body in the first place.
    Contrary to flu vaccines (which I'll discuss in a moment), this recommendation has been gaining scientific validation.
    For example, in one study, published last year, researchers investigated the effect of vitamin D on the incidence of seasonal influenza A in schoolchildren. For over a year, they conducted a study comparing the effects of vitamin D3 with placebos. They found that influenza A occurred in just 10.8 percent of the children in the vitamin D group, compared with 18.6 percent children in the placebo group."

    Feast Like a Caveman and Watch the Pounds Melt Away

    Feast Like a Caveman and Watch the Pounds Melt Away.  All I have to say is "holy cow"!  I thought I was well informed and well educated about the garbage diet that Americans are forced to choose from these days.  

    That is, until I read several articles and a book on the Paleolithic diet and "got a clue". I have been on this diet plan for nearly 3 months now and the difference in my overall health is stupendous.  PLUS!  I have lost 25 pounds in 10 weeks, and am back into my size 4 clothes, simply by ditching all gluten loaded grains, most definitely wheat, and sugars.   

    The way I figure it is that if God had intended us to garbage up on the very toxic high fructose corn syrup loaded foods they would have been provided in God's master plan for human health.  I pity the kids most of all. They have no choice in what they eat. Little wonder that children today are monstrously obese, unhealthy and dying of unnatural causes due to a health destructive diet at increasingly early ages.  Looking at their obese parents advertises to everyone that they are uninformed about nutrition and "don't give a you know what" about their health, longevity, appearance and long term medical costs to name just a few variables.

    "During the Paleolithic period, many thousands of years ago, people ate primarily vegetables, fruit, nuts, roots and meat—and a wide variety of it.

    Today, these staples have been largely replaced with refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, cereal, bread, potatoes and pasteurized milk products… and a much narrower selection of fruits, vegetables, roots and nuts.
    While we may consider ourselves to be at the pinnacle of human development, our modern food manufacturing processes have not created a race of super-humans in possession of great health and longevity.
    Quite the contrary...
    Humans today suffer more chronic and debilitating diseases than ever before. And there can be little doubt that our food choices play a major role in this development
    Can a Stone Age Diet Make You Healthier?

    "CBS recently ran an excellent series of reports about the Paleolithic diet movement. Of the mainstream press, Dr. Kim Mulvihill was the sole member present at the recent Ancestral Health Symposium in Los Angeles. She ended up taking part in Dr. Lynda Frassetto's scientific study on the Paleo diet herself.
    As reported on CBS:
    "You can eat anything that would be able to be eaten without being processed," explained Dr. Lynda Frassetto. That means no grains, no bread, and no [pasteurized] dairy but does include lots of fruits and vegetables, some nuts and oils and lots of fish, poultry and lean meats.
    ... Dr. Frassetto and her team at the University of California in San Francisco tested the Paleo-diet on out-of-shape volunteers. The group ate lots of food without losing any weight or exercising. "In two weeks, everybody's blood pressure went down and everybody's cholesterol and triglyceride levels got better. The average drop was 30 points, which was pretty amazing. It's the type of drop you get by taking statins for six months," said Dr. Frassetto.
    Dr. Frassetto says Paleo foods, also known as the caveman diet, works by keeping your body's chemistry in better balance. The goal of the caveman diet is to reduce excess body fat, aid in the normalization of blood sugar levels and reduce toxins and anti-nutrients."
    "Normalizing" your system is the true strength of the so-called caveman diet. By eating foods that are concordant with your genetic ancestry, you can avoid many of the diseases associated with our modern diet. As Dr. Loren Cordain, author of The Paleo Diet and one of the world's leading experts on Paleolithic nutrition, states:
    "The nutritional qualities of modern processed foods and foods introduced during the Neolithic period are discordant with our ancient and conservative genome. This genetic discordance ultimately manifests itself as various chronic illnesses, which have been dubbed "diseases of civilization." By severely reducing or eliminating these foods and replacing them with a more healthful cuisine, possessing nutrient qualities more in line with the foods our ancestors consumed, it is possible to improve health and reduce the risk of chronic disease." 

    Why the Paleo Diet Works for Weight Loss

    A common "side effect" of rebalancing your body's chemistry is weight loss, as the two tend to go hand-in-hand. One explanation for this is that you don't really get fat from eating too much and exercising too little. Nor do you get fat from eating fat.
    So what does cause your fat tissue to accumulate and hold on to fat?
    In a word: carbohydrates.
    In essence, overeating and excess weight could be viewed as a symptom of an improper diet, because when you consume too many sugars and carbs, you set off a cascade of chemical reactions in your body that makes you hungry and craving for sweets:
    1. First, fructose is metabolized differently from glucose, with the majority being turned directly into fat because stimulates a powerful “fat switch.”
    2. This rapidly leads to weight gain and abdominal obesity ("beer belly"), decreased HDL, increased LDL, elevated triglycerides, elevated blood sugar, and high blood pressure—i.e., classic metabolic syndrome.
    3. Dietary carbohydrates, especially fructose, are also the primary source of a substance called glycerol-3-phosphate (g-3-p), which causes fat to become fixed in fat tissue
    4. At the same time, high carb intake raises your insulin levels, which prevents fat from being released
    5. Fructose further tricks your body into gaining weight by turning off your body's appetite-control system. Fructose does not suppress ghrelin (the "hunger hormone") and doesn't stimulate leptin (the "satiety hormone"), which together result in feeling hungry all the time, even though you've eaten. As a result, you overeat and develop insulin resistance, which is not only an underlying factor of type 2 diabetes and heart disease, but also many cancers
    The resulting equation is simple: fructose and dietary carbohydrates (grains, which break down into sugar) lead to excess body fat, obesity and related health issues. Furthermore, no amount of exercise can compensate for this damage because if you eat excessive fructose and grains—the primary ingredients NOT found in the Paleo diet—it will activate programming to cause your body to become, and remain, fat. 

    Feast Like a Caveman and Watch the Pounds Melt Away.  I couldn't believe the amount of disease producing problems that eating a modern diet loaded with sugar, fat, gluten, lectins and gobs of other toxic foods. "As you can see, simply cutting out fructose and grains from your diet effectively eliminates one of the underlying causes of a number of health problems, including:
    • Hypertension
    • Insulin resistance
    • High cholesterol
    • High triglycerides
    • Overweight
    ... and that's one of the primary reasons the Paleo and other low-carb diets work so well."

    "The nutritional qualities of modern processed foods and foods introduced during the Neolithic period are discordant with our ancient and conservative genome. This genetic discordance ultimately manifests itself as various chronic illnesses, which have been dubbed "diseases of civilization." By severely reducing or eliminating these foods and replacing them with a more healthful cuisine, possessing nutrient qualities more in line with the foods our ancestors consumed, it is possible to improve health and reduce the risk of chronic disease."

    Lead Poisoning Alert: This Widely Used Drink is Dangerous - Fluoride

    Lead Poisoning Alert: This Widely Used Drink is Dangerous.  This is the third or fourth article I have curated on the topic of how dangerous Fluoride is to human health.  Despite the propaganda released by the ghouls in the FDA and other governmental agencies, and the con job that dentists have been sold for decades that fluoride is a   preventative for dental decay, blah, blah, blah.  HA!   
    "Jeff Green has been an activist in the movement to eliminate a toxic fluoride from your water supply for the past 15 years.

    The practice of adding fluoride to municipal tap water across the U.S. began in 1945.
    With more than 60 percent of U.S. water supplies currently fluoridated, chances are you're one of the 170 million Americans who drink fluoride on a daily basis.
    Chances are also high that you're unaware of the sordid history that made water fluoridation a reality in the first place, because contrary to popular belief, its origins actually had nothing to do with protecting your dental health.
    Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, you might be unaware that the fluoride added to your water is far from pharmaceutical grade…

    Deepening the deception is the fact that none of the studies on fluoride actually used the far more toxic hydrofluorosilicic acid that is added to the water supply. Rather they use pharmaceutical grade fluoride, so the health hazards are likely FAR worse than any study has so far discerned.
    "So when someone uses the word fluoride, I believe we start with a deception from the very beginning," Green says. "… [T]here is almost a bragging by the promoters of fluoridation that you don't have to study it because they have studied fluoride over and over again, yet they have never looked at the actual product itself until just recently!
    In 1998 to 2000, I was able to get a congressional investigation on fluoride. At that particular time, the House Committee on Science allowed us to write some questions that would be sent out to various entities. Originally it was to the EPA… We asked them to send the scientific data they had on the silicofluorides. They wrote back [saying they] couldn't find any [data] for chronic effects of the use of hydrofluorosilicic acid or the silicofluorides.  

    Fluoride Increases Heavy Metal Accumulation in Your Body

    These studies also showed that hydrofluorosilicic acid increases lead accumulation in bone, teeth, and other calcium-rich tissues. According to Green, the free fluoride ion actually acts as a transport of heavy metals, allowing them to enter into areas of your body they normally would not be able to go, such as into your brain. 

    So as an example, fluoride is used in the ceramics business to make ceramics more porous. Well, it does exactly the same thing to your bones. Once they have learned all the other uses for fluoride, it becomes very easy to see how it does the same thing to your own calcium-rich tissues."

    Lead Poisoning Alert: This Widely Used Drink is Dangerous.  If you drink city water with fluoride in it, please take a loooooooooooooong look at this article and decide for yourself if the risks are worth lies you have been fed all these many years.

    Southern Nevada Health District Raids Quail Hollow Organic Farm

    Southern Nevada Health District Raids Quail Hollow Organic Farm.  Well, no surprise that the tyrannical government that we are forced to endure has placed us squarely in the category of police state in the USA.  Think we'll ever be free again?  
    Not in this current chaos and madness that rules America today, thanks to corrupt politicians, government bureaucrats, bought and paid for FDA, Big Pharma and a host of other hateful agencies of the US Federal Government all paid for by secret manipulators of everything we know and do.   I can offer you a ton of resources to document and inform you.  Contact me.

    I am forced to wonder how the super chefs on Food Network and Cooking Channel feel when they are such strong advocates of natural, organic foods.  

    "Southern Nevada Health Inspector Mary Oakes under orders from Supervisor Susan LeBay formerly a pool inspector in 2005 visits Quail Hollow Farm on night of Farm To Fork Dinner October 21, 2011 in videos public online gallery.
    Dear Fellow Farmers, Countrymen, and CSA Members:
    Being American it hurts us to write these words: If we want the choice to choose to eat real food, we are going to have to fight for it.
    We are Monte and Laura Bledsoe of Quail Hollow Farm in Overton, Nevada; a small, organic, sustainable CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm that feeds over 100 families in Southern Nevada. In addition to our CSA, we also serve 2 farmers markets each week and provide hands on training and teaching to interns and WWOOFer’s (World Wide Organization of Organic Farmers) who want to learn the skills of organic farming so that they in turn can run their own organic farms in the future.
    Recently on our farm we invited over 100 guests to celebrate the bounty of the harvest with a 5-course dinner on the farm with food provided directly from the farm to their fork. While our guests were arriving a local health district employee arrived and deemed all of our food unfit and threatened police action against ourselves and our guests if we did not only throw out all of the food but to make it even unfit to feed our pigs we were ordered to pour bleach on it. The health district justified this with several reasons that are all arguable but one. The meat that was provided did not come from a government approved source.
    That we are limited to purchase, supply and even to consume only government approved (USDA certified) meats that have co-mingled with countless other animals from countless other farms carrying countless numbers of contaminates is absolutely absurd! That we are not only unable to provide these foods to an educated public but are not able to make that choice for ourselves is absolutely despotic!
    This incident as well as innumerable incidents like this throughout our “free” country is a call to action! If the heavy-handedness of our government officials concerns you please take the following actions.
    1. Share this information and this video and others like this with all those who you know. Get them involved.
    2. Know your county, state and federal laws.
    3. Call your local, state and national representatives and tell them how you feel about the government intrusion into their personal food choices.
    4. Eat & buy local! Support your local farmers and local economy by attending farmer’s markets and/or joining a local CSA (see Patronize stores and restaurants that use these local sources. Your dollar has more clout with Congress than your vote does!
    5. Join the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund ( are fighting for both farmers and consumers throughout the United States and Canada to preserve our food choices.
    We want to personally thank each one of you for your interest in providing and consuming local, organic, sustainable food.

    Fifty Percent of Americans Suffer from Silent Killer

    Fifty Percent of Americans Suffer from Silent Killer.   One of the things I personally eliminated from my diet completely is all wheat products that contain gluten.  There are hundreds of articles on how toxic the current bio-engineered wheat grown contains 90% gluten! is.  Enlightened countries like Spain, India, The Netherlands and countless other European and Asian countries have refused Monsanto's poisonous GMO wheat and other grain seeds because they have seen the damage to the ecosystem and humanity.

    Point being:  Getting rid of an allergen like gluten that causes your body to go into defensive mode and messes up your  blood sugar levels has also had the added  benefit of causing me to lose 27 pounds in 10 weeks.  Effortlessly.  I feel a million times better and have zero gastrointestinal problems that gluten caused me.  Plus the scale is my friend once again.

    "ONE OF EVERY TWO of you have a deadly disease that’s making you fat sick and will kill you and 90% of you don’t even know you have it.
    What’s worse is your doctor’s not trained how to find it and they are not even looking for it.
    This problem will cost us $3.5 trillion over the next 10 years. It is bankrupting our economy. In 30 years 100% of our federal budget will be needed to pay for Medicare and Medicaid leaving nothing for education, defense, agriculture, roads or even social security.
    So what am I talking about?
    I’m talking about diabesity—the number one cause of obesity, heart disease, cancer, dementia and of course type 2 diabetes.
    You might hear many terms used to describe this one basic phenomenon—a new epidemic of disordered biology and disease. It is the continuum of abnormal biology that ranges from mild insulin resistance to full-blown diabetes. We call it by many names. See if you recognize any of them:
    • Insulin resistance
    • Prediabetes
    • Metabolic syndrome
    • Obesity
    • Syndrome X
    • Adult-onset diabetes
    • Type 2 diabetes.
    In truth, these are ALL essentially one problem with varying degrees of severity. The diagnosis and treatment of the underlying causes that drive all these conditions are actually the same.
    That is why I use a more comprehensive term to describe these conditions—diabesity. Diabesity describes a continuum of disease from from optimal blood sugar balance to insulin sensitivity to full-blown diabetes. This biological imbalance is our modern plague. It affects 1 in 2 Americans and is the leading cause of most chronic disease in this country including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer, not to mention its leading role in weight gain and obesity.
    Despite this fact, there are no national recommendations from the government or key organizations to advise screening and treatment of it, and most doctors don’t know how to properly diagnose it. The result is that 90 percent of the people who suffer from diabesity are left undiagnosed and untreated.
    The instances of diabesity are increasing at an astonishing rate. 20 years ago when I started practicing medicine, not a single state in the nation had an obesity rate over 20 percent. Today, not a single state in the nation has an obesity rate under 20 percent. The prevalence of type 2 diabetes has tripled in since the 1980s. There are now 27 million diabetics in the country.
    The question is, “Why?” Why are we facing a diabesity pandemic? Why are our current treatment approaches failing so miserably? And why is conventional medicine floundering when it comes to diagnosing the biggest health threat of our time?"

    "Most medicine today is based on clear-cut, on-or-off, yes-or-no diagnoses that often miss the underlying causes and more subtle manifestations of illness. Most conventional doctors are taught that you have a disease or you don’t; you have diabetes or you don’t. There are no gray areas.

    Practicing medicine this way is extremely misguided because it misses one of the most fundamental laws of physiology, biology, and disease: The continuum concept. There is a continuum from optimal health to hidden imbalance to serious dysfunction to disease. Anywhere along that continuum, we can intervene and reverse the process. The sooner we address it, the better.
    For example, when it comes to diabesity most doctors just follow blood sugar, which actually rises very late in the disease process. If your blood sugar is 90 or 110, you don’t have diabetes. If it’s over 126, you do have diabetes. But these distinctions are completely arbitrary, and they do nothing to help treat impending problems."
