(Natural News) Few things are as ubiquitous in modern kitchens as nonstick cookware; from frying pans to baking dishes and a host of other accouterments, you’d be hard-pressed to find a kitchen without something brandishing a nonstick coating. While it may seem innocuous, that’s probably because corporations like DuPont have the money, influence and power to keep the health risks of their toxic products under wraps — at least, until the cancers and other illnesses become too common to ignore. Indeed, their flagship product, teflon, may provide ease and convenience for household chefs, but such convenience rarely comes without a price.And when it comes to teflon, the price tag is sure to send you looking for grandma’s cast iron skillet. DuPont’s toxic legacy has left a trail around the United States — with some of the most visible harm taking place in the Midwest and along the Mississippi River. The after-effects of teflon production are so … [Read more...] about OUTED: DuPont covered up the health risks of Teflon

After his third session with a "really nice" personal trainer, David Carr found himself in a hospital with one of his arms in a splint and blasted muscle proteins in his urine. "Wow!" exclaimed the doctor when he saw Carr's arms, which were swollen so badly that they could barely bend and wouldn't respond to prescription muscle relaxers. "You're a hair away from compartment syndrome, which means we'd have to open your arms and release the pressure." Carr had torn his biceps and triceps, and suffered such diffuse muscle damage that protein was flooding his kidneys. His right arm was the worst; he'd have to have it in a 90-degree splint for nearly 2 weeks. He'd also have to miss work till the swelling subsided and he was able to bend his elbows enough to steer a car. "Now, how did you do this again?" the doctor asked. Carr was embarrassed to tell him it was just from an "easy" intro workout. He couldn't help thinking he should have been tougher, or more … [Read more...] about Strength Secrets of America’s Top Trainers!

Hi friends, My first post is a paper I wrote for a graduate-level class on Argumentative Research and Writing. Please be sure to share your thoughts on my paper. I will surely appreciate your feedback. Abstract The apparent benefits of GM crops include higher yields, lower labor cost, soil preservation, reduction of herbicide input, decline in CO2 emissions, and affordable prices to buyers, which resulted in a rapid takeover of the corn, soybeans, and cottonseed markets. However, a critical review of these perceived advantages reveals troublesome trends such as modest or negligible gains in realized crop yields, genetic pollution of traditional varieties, rapid development of glyphosate resistance in weeds and Bt-toxin in root worms, environmental damage due to alterations to the ecological balance of non-target species, alarming toxicological effects in rats and pigs, and detectable levels of Bt-toxins in human blood samples. Current GM-based agricultural models must be revised to … [Read more...] about Environmental & Health Impact of GM Crops
With school back in session and flu season lurking right around the corner, vaccinations are a very touchy subject. A baby today receives more vaccines by 6 months than her mother did by the time she graduated high school. As an ex-vaccination nurse I feel it’s my duty to educate as many moms as I can before the pressure of flu season hits. I have given thousands of vaccines and have decided I no longer want any involvement in the business. I used to get annoyed by the granola moms who wanted to read each ingredient and ask 100 questions. I’ll now apologize and explain why. The ingredients, the post marketing surveillance, and the vaccination schedule, which has never been tested in humans or animals, are the main reasons I walked away from my high paying job. Each vaccine comes with a package insert. The inserts are in such small font most people can’t even read them. You can find any package insert online, but they are usually 10-13 … [Read more...] about The Vaccine Debate- A Nurse’s Point of View
“Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances of survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” -Albert Einstein Imagine for a moment a fuel source so powerful, so full of vital energy that when taken into the body over time and distance, it supplies to the human mind-body system a state of health and vitality that is nearly supernatural. This is not so from the truth as people might think. Raw foods and the transition over to a raw food way of eating is the beginning of that powerful fuel source that wil transform one’s mind, body and experience of reality. Most of the people in the industrially developed modern world do not understand how a person can only eat raw foods. No boiling, no roasting, no frying, no baking, no microwaving and, one of Americas favorites, no barbequing. To some, this just sounds crazy. After all, Western civilization is thriving in all of those areas of food preparation and has been for a long … [Read more...] about The Power of Raw Foods
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
What Is Reality? Quantum Physics offers us some ideas that most would consider pretty far out of the box of normal thinking. For example, it says solid matter is not solid. But that’s just the beginning. It also suggests that what appears to be the material world may not exist on its own, but only as a projection of our own consciousness, a Hologram. What is the basis of this unusual line of thought, how can we use it, and how can we tell if it is real? That reminds me of what President Clinton said when he was being pressured to explain one of his alleged sex affairs. He was being very tricky, but legally accurate, when he said that what he actually did, depends on what the definition of the word “is” is. Similarly, but not to be tricky, in order to answer the question of whether something is real, we have to define what “real” means. What is real to one person is often not real to another. Which one … [Read more...] about From Quantum Physics To End Of Life Planning
All of a sudden, everyone is talking about health care reform. From corporations like Wal-Mart to the Republican majority in the House and Senate, it seems that everyone – business, government and the public – recognizes that our health care system is broken and needs to be fixed. But so far, nobody in any position of power has offered a plan that would actually make Americans healthier and therefore prevent disease. Yes, there’s lots of so-called “reform” schemes being tossed around, but if you take a closer look you’ll find that they’re all just financial shell games that pass the buck on who pays for a diseased population. Our health care industry is really a disease management industry that is based on maximizing profits while keeping the American people in a state of chronic degenerative disease while pushing drugs, surgery and other treatments that do nothing to address the causes of poor health in the first place. Nobody teaches … [Read more...] about Why real health care legislation ain’t never gonna happen.
