(Natural News) How prepared is the world to take on another pandemic? Not very, according to two of the world’s foremost experts on the subject. Speaking at the recently concluded World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Dr. Sylvie Briand, a specialist in infectious diseases from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Elhadj As Sy, the secretary general of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, each shared their thoughts on the matter of the world’s preparedness for the next pandemic.According to the two experts, the world should stop looking at pandemics as sort of isolated incidents and instead start recognizing them as the population-wiping abominations that they truly are. As Elhadj As Sy stated to the AFP, “Pandemics are becoming a real threat to humanity.” And Dr. Brand agrees, adding: “We know that it is coming, but we have no way of stopping it.” They spoke at Davos in a discussion titled, “Are We … [Read more...] about Is this the global pandemic experts are warning about?

It's just before noon in Avila Beach and the day is already as hot as an industrial kitchen. The quaint surf town in San Luis Obispo County sits along the Pacific Coast between San Francisco and Los Angeles, and from the rooftop patio of the Inn at Avila Beach, the view is striking: The ocean undulates forever, surfers bob on waves, sunburned kids ride skateboards and eat roasted corn. It's as idyllic a scene as you can imagine--and just last year, no less an authority than Oprah Winfrey christened the nearby city of San Luis Obispo the happiest place in America. Visitors and residents alike come for the surf and the locally produced Syrah, the seaside hikes and the fresh fish. Carole Hisasue came here for all that and more. A Japanese national weary of Japan's television and radio industry grind, she moved to the area 5 years ago with her husband, William, seeking peace, stability, and a libertarian brand of self-reliance. Perched on a gray wooden picnic bench in her backyard, she … [Read more...] about Prevention Investigates: Could a Nuclear Meltdown Happen Here?
(Natural News) We’re bringing this claim to your attention because a growing number of observers, websites and analysts are concluding that Hurricane Harvey was “engineered” and made into a “weather weapon” through a combination of ground-based temperature manipulation tools and “chemtrail” seeding.Yes, it sounds absurd at first, until you realize that Al Gore tells us that human activity controls the climate every day. It’s called “climate change,” and in fact, Al Gore and the climate alarmists directly tell us that we created Hurricane Harvey and all the other “extreme” weather events anyone sees. Weather modification, in other words, has become the de facto belief of climate alarmists. The entire mainstream media routinely insists that hurricanes, droughts, floods, snowstorms and tornadoes are all unintentionally created by human activity.The key difference between Al Gore and the “weather wars” … [Read more...] about “Weather wars” theorists claim Hurricane Harvey was engineered, “steered” toward Houston as a “weather terrorism” weapon
(Natural News) A new report has concluded that despite the attention being given to protecting the nation’s power grid in a world where the threat of cyber attack grows daily, it remains highly vulnerable to a breach that, if large parts of the grid are destroyed, would lead to the deaths of millions of Americans.As reported by Homeland Security Newswire, the congressionally-mandated study by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine found that the grid remains highly vulnerable to a range of threats that could inflict massive damage resulting in long-term power outages that would cost billions to repair and inflict huge loss of life.“Experts recommend ways to make the grid more resilient through the development and demonstration of technologies and organizational strategies that minimize the likelihood that outages will happen, reduce the impacts and speed of recovery if they do, all the while developing mechanisms for continual improvement based on … [Read more...] about U.S. power grid continues to be vulnerable to cyber attack: Millions would die if it were to fail, so are you prepared?
Medical malpractice occurs when a health care professional or provider neglects to provide appropriate treatment, omits to take an appropriate action, or gives substandard treatment that causes harm, injury, or death to a patient. The malpractice or negligence normally involves a medical error. This could be in diagnosis, medication dosage, health management, treatment, or aftercare. Medical malpractice law makes it possible for patients to recover compensation from any harms that result from sub-standard treatment. According to the Medical Malpractice Center, in the United States, there are between 15,000 and 19,000 medical malpractice suits against doctors every year. The standards and regulations for medical malpractice can differ between countries and states. A hospital, doctor, or other health care professional is expected to provide a certain standard of care. The professional is not liable for all the harms a patient experiences. However, they are legally … [Read more...] about Medical malpractice: What does it involve?
Vitamin C deficiency among pregnant women can result in serious health complications in the fetus' brain. Although women can make a conscious effort to take vitamin C supplements, if damage is already done to the baby's brain, it can not be fixed, according to a new study conducted by researchers at the University of Copenhagen and published in PLOS ONE According to the recent report, between 10 and 20% of all adults in the developed world do not get enough vitamin C, and pregnant women should make sure they are getting enough of this vitamin. Professor Jens Lykkesfeldt, the lead scientist involved in the study, said, "Even marginal vitamin C deficiency in the mother stunts the fetal hippocampus, the important memory center, by 10-15 percent, preventing the brain from optimal development." Lykkesfeldt continued: "We used to think that the mother could protect the baby. Ordinarily there is selective transport from mother to fetus of the substances the baby needs during … [Read more...] about Vitamin C Deficiency In Pregnant Women Can Cause Fetal Brain Damage
With a business-friendly president in the Oval Office, Republicans in Congress are hoping 2017 will be the year for major tort reforms. Currently, at least four bills are advancing in the House, all aimed at protecting doctors and corporations from frivolous lawsuits and unnecessary costs. Despite evidence to the contrary, proponents of the bills say trivial lawsuits are driving malpractice insurance premiums ever higher and driving doctors out of business. One measure, the Protecting Access to Care Act, would cap noneconomic damages in malpractice lawsuits at $250,000. Currently, there is no federal limit on monetary awards for noneconomic damages, which includes pain and suffering. The bill, H.R. 1215, also establishes limits on how long plaintiffs can wait to file a malpractice suit. For adults, the deadline is three years after the injury or one year after its discovery. For minors, the statue of limitations is three years after the injury or, if the child is under six years old, … [Read more...] about GOP eyes medical tort reform
Sungazing is becoming an increasing interest to people in the modern world and for good reason. Sungazing is one of the oldest human practices known to man. Records of paintings in caves all around the world depict people standing beneath the sun, their eyes gazing deep into its light as if some otherworldly communion was taking place. From Australia and the Asiatic countries to the Middle East and the natives of the pre-Americas, worshiping the sun is mankind’s oldest religious practice. Unfortunately, Western history and their academic institutions do not expound on this most enlightening phenomenon other than to say that ancient people worshiped the sun as God. But is there a deeper, more insightful dimension concerning the connection human beings have with sun? Absolutely! The Ancient Mind To the ancient mind the sun and the moon were the lights that ruled the day and ruled the night. Without modern lighting to light their humble cities at night, the night sky and … [Read more...] about Sungazing Sunlight and Human Health
Obamacare vs. the Holistic Approach Watching the engineered debacle of Obamacare unfold, exposing it as the planned disaster it was always meant to be, should beg the question, what would a real health care plan for America actually look like? The great healers and teachers of health, going back thousands of years and more, have always seen health from a holistic point of view. They never focused on covering up symptoms for the moment, even with natural remedies, but always taught that our whole life should be conducive to health. When there is sickness or disease, the causes have to be cleaned out in order to go back to our normal state of radiant health. Taking drugs, even if you call them “medicine,” just creates the conditions for the problem to get worse. Our concept of aging as the gradual breakdown of the body and mind, with increasing disease and disability, until we arrive at a completely helpless state and finally die an agonizing death, … [Read more...] about America’s Rx For Holistic Health: Compare This To Obamacare
In the light of the current financial rout which has been sweeping equity markets it seems like we may be coming to a new level of awareness and shift in the global economy. Despite White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest defending the U.S economy as strong and resilient after almost almost $2 trillion was wiped from investors, the reality is rooted in a flawed concept and belief that markets can grow forever. The world’s biggest Ponzi scheme which has been artificially inflated for much of the past decade may well be the turning point for Western society. This could be the wake up call that is sorely needed as central banks keep trying to kick the can down the road and keep the overly inflated financial markets and systemic failures of the system going. While the mainstream media pretend this is a “blip” on the economic radar and mainstream ‘financial lap dogs’ continue to placate the market … [Read more...] about 15 Quotes Explaining where the U.S Economy and Markets are Headed
