Superfoods are a pretty overrated phrase, but here are four foods that can be called “super.” “Superfood” is a popular buzzword you’ve probably seen on health blogs, in grocery stores, and from well-meaning friends. And every year, there’s a new trending “superfood”. Whether the latest fad is a rare fruit from the Amazon or a seed that cures every disease known to man, most superfoods build on hype, not evidence of real health benefits. So although there’s no such thing as a “superfood”, we’ve put together a shortlist of four foods that have substantial evidence behind them. 1.

Lyme Disease is The New Syphilis

Before the advent of antibiotics, syphilis was one of the most common infections in the Western World, afflicting up to 10% of the adult populations. In 1927 Julius Wagner-Jauregg was given the first and only Nobel Prize awarded to a psychiatrist. This was for work done in 1917 in which Wagner-Jauregg had exposed three neurosyphilitic patients to malaria drawn from the blood of a wounded soldier. The resulting high fever killed the syphilis bacterium, leading to their recovery! Given that there were few cures for anything in 1917, Wagner-Jauregg’s achievement was a milestone in psychiatric and medical science. There was now a reliable, albeit risky, cure for neurosyphilis. When I went to med school there was a saying: “To know syphilis is to know medicine,” meaning that the bacterial spirochete responsible for… Read More

The Real Reason Big Pharma Wants to Own the Patents to Cannabis

The race is on to own cannabis, and companies like Bayer, Monsanto and Scotts Miracle-Gro are working feverishly to devise ways of patenting this natural medicinal plant. If they succeed, the landscape of legal weed will change forever in favor of corporate monopolies and quality control empires which will crush diversity in this thriving cash crop. For lawn, garden and agrochemical companies to want in on the growing cannabis market is no surprise, for it’s the fastest growing trend this industry has ever seen, as even noted by the CEO of Scotts. “Jim Hagedorn, CEO of Scotts Miracle-Gro, has even said that he plans to “invest, like, half a billion in [taking over] the pot business… It is the biggest thing I’ve ever seen in lawn and garden.” “He has also invested… Read More

THE KIDNEY FLUSH: HOW IT WORKS

As the incidence of kidney problems has soared to epidemic levels over the last ten years, the need for a strong, dedicated formula for doing a regular kidney detox has become paramount. Even though a number of herbs (chanca piedra, juniper berry, uva ursi, parsley root, dandelion root, and horsetail) are common to both kidney and liver maintenance, a few additional ingredients are necessary for long-term kidney health. Such a kidney detox formula should also play a major role in eliminating gallstones and, amazingly, even helping with arthritis.

The Truth Behind Why Michael J. Fox Will Never Find a Cure

by C. THOMAS CORRIHER Certain celebrities have been associated with specific diseases. For instance, Patrick Swayze will be associated with pancreatic cancer indefinitely. Michael J. Fox represents Parkinson’s disease, and the Marlboro Man ironically represents lung cancer. For those who do not remember, the Marlboro Men were the smoking cowboys who attempted to make filtered cigarettes seem more masculine. The commercials were a huge success, until all of the actors began dying from lung cancer. The demise of the Marlboro Men was publicized heavily by the mainstream media, because it has long been open season against tobacco products, since it became illegal for tobacco companies to fund news shows. The cause of Michael Fox’s Parkinson’s disease is always side-stepped by the media, similar to the dishonest tobacco precedent. Readers may notice there has never been… Read More

Whooping Cough Outbreaks Traced Back to Vaccine Failure

The pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine is included as a component in “combination” shots that include tetanus and diphtheria (DPT, DTaP, Tdap) and some pertussis-containing shots now also include polio, hepatitis B and/or Haemophilus Influenza B (Hib). Whole cell pertussis vaccines in DPT, used in the U.S. from 1949 until the late ‘90s, were estimated to be between 30 and 85 percent effective, depending upon the type of DPT and vaccine manufacturer, with protection lasting only two to five years. [1] The DPT vaccine was highly reactive and carried a high risk of serious allergic reactions and brain inflammation leading to permanent brain damage, as detailed in the groundbreaking 1985 book DPT: A Shot in the Dark, co-authored by Barbara Loe Fisher, cofounder of the National Vaccine Information Center. DTaP shots — which… Read More

What Are Humans Made Of?

The figure seems to hover around 95 percent. That’s the proportion of the universe that consists of dark matter and dark energy – entities that are only dimly and indirectly perceived by scientific apparatus. This fact has gotten wide attention lately, but one implication has gone unnoticed: if this is the case for the physical universe, it must also be the case for our own bodies. Therefore 95 percent of your body is made up of matter and energy about which nearly nothing is known. This makes the ancient dictum “Know thyself” somewhat harder to satisfy than one might have thought. What, then, is the body made of? It is a question that conventional thought cannot answer and for the most part cannot contemplate. This leads us to consider views of the… Read More
