When most people think of eugenics, the practice of “improving” the hereditary qualities of a race by controlled, selective breeding, they think of Nazi Germany and their attempts to exterminate certain ethnic groups.

But not only did the practice begin long before World War II, and end much later, it also was not confined to Nazi Germany.

In fact, eugenics was widely practiced in many countries, including in the United States as recently as the 1980s. Read the rest of this entry

Flu Vaccine Causes Chronic Nervous System Disorders

Conclusive Link Now Admitted: Swine Flu Vaccine Causes Chronic Nervous System Disorders

The nation of Finland has now openly admitted that the swine flu vaccine “conclusively” causes narcolepsy, a chronic nervous system disorder that makes people uncontrollably fall asleep. The Finnish government, in acknowledging this link, says it will pay for “lifetime medical care” for 79 children who have been irreparably damaged by the swine flu vaccine. (http://news.yahoo.com/finland-vows-…)

Narcolepsy isn’t the only side effect now admitted to be caused by swine flu vaccines: 76 of the 79 children also suffered hallucinations and “paralyzing physical collapses,” say Finnish researchers. Read the rest of this entry

“…the most obese people ever to walk the Earth.”

With high-calorie dishes, restaurant chains put obesity on the menu

Sometimes, American restaurants unveil menu items that are so gluttonous that they seem to be trying to stun the senses. This was the case earlier this year with KFC’s much-discussed Double Down sandwich: two pieces of bacon, two slices of cheese and “Colonel’s Sauce,” with two thick filets of fried chicken functioning as the bun.

But compared with some chain restaurants’ offerings, the 540-calorie Double Down is almost health food. Many meals offered at these eateries are much worse, nutritionally speaking.

Below is a list of dishes that in just one sitting provide close to or more than the 2,000 calories recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for an entire day’s sustenance. They also mostly stomp all over the recommended daily intakes for sodium (no more than 2,400 milligrams), fat (65 grams) and saturated fat (20 grams) for someone on a 2,000-calorie diet.

“These chains don’t promote moderation,” Michael F. Jacobson, the executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, said in May, when his watchdog organization gave its 2010 Xtreme Eating awards to nine “caloric heavyweight” meals. “They practice caloric extremism, and they’re helping make modern-day Americans become the most obese people ever to walk the Earth.” Read the rest of this entry

Not all trans fat is created equal: Could ‘natural’ trans fats actually be good for you?

Not all trans fat is created equal: Could ‘natural’ trans fats actually be good for you?

If you were to ask any random person on the street today if trans fats are bad for health, he or she would most likely respond in the affirmative. But a new study out of the University of Alberta (UA) in Canada clarifies a common misunderstanding about trans fats — natural, health-promoting, ruminant trans fats are far different from the synthetic, health-destroying, industrial trans fats found in many processed foods.

In many countries, including in the US, there is no differentiation made between natural and industrial trans fats — they are all labeled in the same ingredient category on food packaging, and are all considered harmful. And researchers allege that this error needs to be changed, noting that people can actually benefit from the consumption of natural trans fats.

Spencer Proctor, a researcher in the Department of Agricultural, Food and Nutritional Science and director of the Metabolic and Cardiovascular Diseases Laboratory at UA, and his colleagues arrived at this conclusion after conducting an in-depth review of different types of trans fats. They found that ruminant trans fats found in meat and dairy products have a vastly different fatty acid profile than industrial trans fats like hydrogenated vegetable oil.

The natural trans fats found in organic, pasture-based animal meat and dairy products can actually help reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and cancer, while industrial trans fats found in various processed foods lead to conditions like high cholesterol and coronary heart disease.

“A change in how trans fat information is presented on nutrition labels would be a huge step forward,” said Proctor. “Right now, in Canada and the US, a substantial portion of natural trans fats content is included in the nutrition label trans fats calculation, which is misleading for the consumer. We need a reset in our approach to reflect what the new science is telling us.”

The study confirms what a previous one published by Flora Wang, another UA researcher, found back in 2008 — far from harmful, natural trans fats actually help to reduce the risk of obesity, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, and diabetes (http://www.sciencedaily.com/release…).

Gardasil vaccine dangerous, completely useless at preventing cervical cancer

Gardasil vaccine dangerous, completely useless at preventing cervical cancer

The massive controversy over Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s appalling 2007 executive order mandating that all young girls in his state receive Merck & Co.’s Gardasil vaccine before entering school has brought the issue of the vaccine’s safety and effectiveness, or lack thereof, back to the forefront of the national conversation. And a European physician has now openly spoken out against Gardasil, claiming that it is both dangerous and completely ineffective at preventing cervical cancer.

Dr. Christian Fiala, a general practitioner from Vienna, Austria, told WorldNetDaily(WND) in a recent report that Merck’s Gardasil does not actually work to prevent cervical cancer, and that it is not safe. According to Dr. Fiala, “there is no proof of a causal relationship of HPV (human papillomavirus) and cervical cancer, and there is no evidence that HPV vaccine reduces the overall number of cervical cancer (cases).” Read the rest of this entry

Dr. Kimberly Quinlan Lindsey

Dr. Kimberly Quinlan Lindsey, a top official with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been arrested and charged with two counts of child molestation and one count of bestiality.

Dr. Lindsey, who joined the CDC in 1999, is currently the deputy director for the Laboratory Science Policy and Practice Program Office. She’s second in command of the program office.

Prior to that role, she was the senior health scientist in the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response, an office that oversees the allocation process for $1.5 billion in terrorism preparedness.

According to CNN:
“Authorities also charged Lindsey’s live-in boyfriend, Thomas Joseph Westerman, 42, with two counts of child molestation.

The two are accused of ‘immoral and indecent’ sexual acts involving a 6-year-old …

The bestiality charge says Lindsey ‘did unlawfully perform or submit to any sexual act with an animal.'”

Between January and August last year, Dr. Lindsey and her boyfriend allegedly involved the child during sex, and DeKalb County police claim they discovered photographs of Lindsey performing sex acts on a couple of her pets.

Putting stress on adaptogens

Putting stress on adaptogens

In this age and time, life is full of hassles, deadlines, frustrations, and demands. For many, stress is so commonplace that it has become a way of life. Whether the stress is mental, physical, climate-related, or chemically induced, at times all people can benefit from a class of nutrients known as “adaptogens.”

Adaptogens were first discovered in Russia in the 1950s by professor Israel I. Brekhman, MD, who is best known for his pioneering work with Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus). An adaptogen is a “soft-acting” plant that helps the body and mind adapt to stress.

Soft-acting plants, unlike the hard-acting varieties, are nonspecific in their nature. Adaptogenic action is often the result of the combination of several active principles, hard-acting plants or drugs are more specific and direct in their action on the body.

To qualify as an adaptogen, a plant must meet three criteria: Read the rest of this entry
