Hello and Greetings.  I really feel at home with native rituals and news, it seems to connect me with Mother Earth, here are a few samples:

NEW SOLAR OBSERVATORY LAUNCHES TODAY: A new and unique solar observatory is poised to leave Earth today. IRIS (the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph) will blast off from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base onboard a Pegasus XL rocket at 7:27 p.m. PDT. A modified L-1011 airliner will carry the rocket to 39,000 feet over the Pacific Ocean where the plane will drop the Pegasus to begin the launch. (continued below)
ove: Engineers mount the Pegasus to the belly of the Orbital Sciences L-1011.
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) is known as the finest solar telescope ever launched into space. IRIS is equally capable, but in its own way. "IRIS almost acts as a microscope to SDO's telescope," explains mission manager Jim Hall. While SDO sees the entire sun, IRIS going to look closely at about 1 percent of the sun's surface, discerning features as small as 150 miles across.

IRIS will pay special attention to a thin layer of the sun's atmosphere called the "interface region" where most of the sun’s ultraviolet emission is generated. Researchers are keen to study this layer because it is probably the energy source for the sun's mysteriously-hot outer corona.
"IRIS will show the solar chromosphere in more detail than has ever been observed before," says Adrian Daw, deputy project scientist. "My opinion is that we are bound to see something we didn't expect to see." Stay tuned!

The most nutritious fruits and vegetables ‘see the dawn’

You can get more nutrition from the vegetables and fruits you buy in the shops by exposing them to the natural cycles of day and night, researchers have discovered.
Vegetables and fruits stay alive after they have been picked, and you can extend their life further by ensuring they experience the full circadian cycle of night and day.  They become richer in cancer-fighting antioxidants around the dawn when they increase their defences against aphids that would normally attack them while they were growing, say researchers from Rice University in California.
But produce that is stored away in the fridge or a dark shelf never have the sense of changing patterns during the day, and so don’t produce the antioxidants.
The researchers discovered the phenomenon when they tested cabbages, spinach, lettuce, courgettes (zucchini), carrots, sweet potatoes and blueberries for their aphid-fighting chemicals—which happens to be when they are at their most nutritious for us.

Pomegranate juice helps kidney patients on dialysis

The health benefits of pomegranate juice just get better and better.  The juice lowers cholesterol levels and blood pressure, and researchers have discovered this week that it can help kidney patients on dialysis combat infections and heart problems.
The researchers, from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, tested it on a group of 101 dialysis patients, who were given the juice or a placebo drink three times a week for a year.
The pomegranate juice group suffered fewer inflammatory problems, and they were less likely to need hospital care for infections.
The juice is a powerful antioxidant and infection-fighter, say the researchers.

The only drawback with this is in the UK certain fruits cost so much, my terribly forensic  mind says is it deliberately done?

Handful of raisins lower blood pressure to safe levels

If you have slightly raised blood pressure (prehypertension), don’t turn to a drug – snack on some raisins every day to lower it.  Eating a handful three times a day has a dramatic effect, and can normalise your levels.
Although people seem to know that raisins are good for hypertension, nobody actually had got round to proving it.  So researchers from the Louisville Metabolic and Atherosclerosis Research Center (L-Marc) decided to do just that.
They monitored the blood pressure of 46 men and women who were prehypertensive and tested the effects of raisins, other fruits and vegetables, and typical snacks such as biscuits and crackers over a 12-week period.
The raisin snacks lowered systolic and diastolic blood pressure by up to 7 per cent, while the other snacks didn’t have any effect.
The researchers believe the potassium in raisins is the active agent that is helping prehypertensives get their blood pressure back into the safe range.  Prehypertension is defined as a systolic pressure range from 120 to 139 mm Hg and diastolic pressure from 80 to 89 mm Hg.

A lot of folk have asked me why do you have a pop at the USA, the EU and UK?  Why not China, India, Iran, Russia and so on?  I have friends in the countries I have a go at and the whistle blowers are there as well. I do have contacts in Russia, China, Iran and so on, they are not whistle blowers, they are Qi Gong, science, cultural exchange and they do not blow whistles, and until they do that is our communication.  They are loyal and trustworthy and respect and love their country, we do not discuss politics, religion other than a discussion as regards customs, festivals and generalities.  I am deeply interested in their beliefs of faith and psychology. It broadens the minds scope for the understanding and cultural exchange. 

  • Many foods sold in the US are banned in other countries due to harmful additives, growth promoters, genetically engineered ingredients or other dangerous practices
  • This includes farm-raised salmon, Hawaiian (GMO) papaya, artificial food dyes, arsenic-laced chicken, ractopamine-tainted meat, bromate-containing drinks and bread, olestra, carcinogenic preservatives, and rBGH-laced milk
  • To avoid potentially hazardous foods and harmful ingredients permitted in the US food supply, ditching processed foods entirely is your best option
  • Also swap out your regular meat sources to organic, grass-fed/pasture-raised versions of beef and poultry. The same goes for dairy products and animal by-products such as eggs
  • According to a USA Today review of government records and medical databases, tens of thousands of patients undergo unnecessary surgery each and every year
  • Among the most commonly performed unnecessary surgeries are cardiac angioplasties, pacemakers, back surgery, knee and hip surgeries, hysterectomy and Cesarean sections
  • Diagnostic errors are also problematic and may account for the permanent injury or death of up to 160,000 US patients each year
  • If you're having an elective medical procedure done always get a second opinion—and possibly a third and fourth

ANH-Intl e-Alert: Let’s not be sheep

I’m increasingly coming to the conclusion that scientific debate and scientific consensus are often not much more than propaganda.  Yet our governments and the scientific and medical community want us to frame our personal opinions around whatever emerges from these sausage machines.  Think about the information we’re fed about orthodox healthcare and GM crops.  Or what we’re told is dangerous or ineffective about natural healthcare.

So often, it seems we are being asked to accept that a given technology is either good for us or dangerous to us, when in actual fact any decision, one way or another, it is plagued with scientific uncertainty.  What’s more, any risks or benefits they don’t want us to hear about are buried so deep that supposedly authoritative sources never mention them.

It’s a clever ploy, and it seems to work well enough on those who fail to engage properly with the political, social and economic context of our contemporary existence.  But those with awareness usually see straight through it. They – we – also don’t need to be told how to feel about what we choose to include or exclude from our lives. We are not sheep, and we don’t much care for being treated as such!

This is likely one reason why all the attempts to choke to death unconventional therapies, ranging from homeopathy to herbalism – using studies designed to fail, red tape or negative press – keep failing.  We are aware of our own experiences as well as those of people around us, or of those whose views we respect, and these experiences provide a sufficient basis to choose one way or another. We make our choices regardless of what we hear from governments or scientists, who have probably either misunderstood or misrepresented the subject they have investigated. We mainly just care that a therapy works!  And for all the randomised clinical trials, meta-analyses and systematic reviews thrown at a given therapy, we’re ultimately more likely to settle for straightforward empirical evidence. Most of us don’t even care if it isn’t published!

This week’s stories

This week, we look at two therapies that remain heavily under attack, but for which public support remains unabated – probably for some of the reasons above.  We go from EU herbal madness to continued UK pressure against homeopathy. The reality is that trying to regulate natural health practices out of existence has never been shown to work. Yes, it may drive products further away from the mainstream, and accordingly deny some from experiencing the benefits of natural health.  But it won’t kill off our innate desire to use the least-harmful methods we can find, that are most closely aligned with our biological function, to give us the best health that our genes, background and environment will allow.

We also bring you news of an Australian who quit taking drugs and getting sick, and decided to take full responsibility for his own health.  UK residents and continental Europeans who can access the UK’s Channel 5 TV can see the screening of Joe Cross’ documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead tonight at 8 pm GMT.  But there are plenty of other ways to see the inspirational documentary too.

This video finally proves that the Red Cross did a field test showing malaria was cured using MMS (sodium chlorite+activating acid producing chlorine dioxide) with a 100% success rate in 154 cases within 24-48 hours. This formerly hidden video was kept from the public for over 5 months until recently discovered. 
IT's hard to believe the Red Cross would be involved in this sort of thing.  HOWEVER, they need funds and do incredibly wonderful work and maybe or probably paid a lot by the pharmaceutical companies to keep this quiet, like cures for cancer, free energy it doesn't pay to have healthy people. Sick people are cash cows. OK if you are genuinely sick, one needs help and care, however, it need not necessarily come from alopathic sources.  
During 2006 and 2007 traces of three varieties of unapproved GM rice owned by Bayer CropScience were found in US rice exports in over 30 countries worldwide. At the time of discovery only one of the contaminating varieties (LLRICE62) had approval for cultivation in the US, the other two varieties (LLRICE601 and LLRICE604) had not. None of the contaminating varieties had approval for cultivation or consumption anywhere else in the world.
No GM rice has ever been grown commercially in the US and the source of the contamination is believed to be field trials of herbicide tolerant rice conducted between the mid-1990s and early-2000s by Bayer CropScience (or its precursor companies Aventis CropScience and AgrEvo). Bayer abandoned these trials in 2002. Despite two of their rice varieties, (LLRICE06 and LLRICE62) receiving deregulated status in 2002, none of Bayer’s GM rice varieties have ever been placed on the market US. The USDA official report into the incident identified the field trials as the source of contamination but was unable to decide whether gene flow (cross pollination) or mechanical mixing was the mechanism responsible for the contamination.
The incident has had a major impact on US rice exports with US rice being pulled from shelves worldwide. Many countries including the European Union, Japan, South Korea and the Philippines imposed a strict certification and testing regime on all rice imports, whilst Russia and Bulgaria imposed bans on US rice. By contrast other rice exporting countries have seen an increase in trade. The contamination episode has also affected seed producers; an entire non-GM rice variety Clearfield 131 was banned by US regulators in early 2007 when it was found to be contaminated, costing producer BASF billions of dollars in losses.
Bayer has sought retrospective approval for the contaminating rice varieties. Approval for commercial growing of LL601 was granted in the US in 2006 and approval for import was granted for LL62 in Canada in 2006.
    Hmm. What do you make of this?  I had much the same when I landed at Halifax in 2000.
    • Burzynski—Cancer is Serious Business details the struggles and victories of Dr. Burzynski and his groundbreaking cancer treatment, and explores the current status of Antineoplastons’ clinical testing
    • Antineoplastons are peptides and derivatives of amino acids that act as genetic switches. They turn off the oncogenes that cause cancer, and turn on or activate tumor suppressor genes—genes that fight cancer
    • Dr. Burzynski’s treatment holds the first cures ever for brainstem glioma, a fatal type of brain cancer that typically affects children and young adults
    • Japanese researchers have spent 27 years independently testing Antineoplastons and reproducing Dr. Burzynski’s findings, leading them to conclude that the effectiveness of Antineoplastons is “obviously not anecdotal anymore”
    • A group of patients and patient advocates have launched a campaign to have Antineoplastons accepted worldwide as a “standard of care” for the treatment of cancer

    Eating walnuts is one of the very best ways to keep your heart and cardiovascular system healthy.  The nut raises levels of the HDL ‘good’ cholesterol, and its oil helps maintain strong blood vessels.
    People with cardiovascular disease should take a sip of walnut oil after meals, say researchers from Penn State University, and everyone should eat a few walnuts every day.
    They reckon that people who start eating the nuts and drinking the oil will dramatically reduce their chances of heart attack and cardiovascular disease, the number one killer in the West.
    Although it’s known that whole walnuts reduce cholesterol levels, the Penn State researchers discovered why it’s so beneficial, and the importance that the walnut oil also plays.
    They gave 85 grams of nuts and 51 grams of walnut oil to 15 people with raised cholesterol levels.  Within 30 minutes—and for up to six hours afterwards—the nuts and oils raised HDL ‘good’ cholesterol levels, and the oil was especially good for the health of blood vessels after a meal.

    • Sunlight causes your skin to produce nitric oxide, a critical compound for maintaining blood pressure that reduces your risk for heart attack and stroke
    • Benefits of sunlight exposure vastly outweigh risks of exposure. Evidence shows your risk of dying from skin cancer is 80 times lower on average than your risk of dying from a heart attack or stroke
    • Nitric oxide enhances blood flow, promotes blood vessel elasticity, lowers blood pressure, and functions as a signaling molecule in your brain and immune system
    • Elevated uric acid drives up blood pressure by inhibiting nitric oxide; overconsumption of fructose is the most significant factor underlying elevated uric acid levels in the US and other Western nations
    • The “melanoma epidemic” is grossly overstated; research shows 90 percent of melanoma surgeries are for benign lesions; the latest science suggests appropriate UV exposure is protective against melanoma

    • Processed foods wreak havoc on your health through many ‘sneaky’ ways, such as causing you to overeat and leading to addiction
    • Processed foods are linked to infertility, cancer, malnutrition and obesity, as well as causing problems with your brain and mood
    • Unlike whole foods, which contain a mix of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, fiber and water to help you feel satisfied, processed foods stimulate dopamine, a feel-good neurotransmitter, making you feel artificially good even though the food lacks the nutrition your body needs
    • When it comes to staying healthy, avoiding processed foods and replacing them with fresh, eating whole foods is the "secret" you've been looking for

    A lovely few minutes of fun science 'the coiling effect'.
    • An oncology dietitian has pointed out significant discrepancies in a new HPV vaccine effectiveness study that claims the vaccine’s effectiveness is “high”
    • Recent reductions in HPV infection prevalence among young women in the US cannot be said to be due to introduction of Gardasil vaccine in 2006 and use of HPV vaccines by pre-teen and teenage girls since then; the data clearly shows that unvaccinated girls had the best outcome
    • In 2007-2010, HPV prevalence dropped 27.3 percent in the unvaccinated girls, but only declined by 5.8 percent in the vaccinated group. In four out of five different measures, the unvaccinated girls had a lower incidence of HPV
    • According to Merck’s own research before Gardasil was licensed, if you've been exposed to HPV strains 16 or 18 prior to receiving Gardasil vaccine, you could increase your risk of precancerous lesions by 44.6 percent.
    • Judicial Watch has received previously withheld documents from the DDHS, which reveal that the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has awarded $5,877,710 to 49 victims for harm resulting from the HPV vaccine
    • Wisconsin dairy farmer Vernon Hershberger was charged with four criminal misdemeanors for supplying a private buying club with raw milk and other fresh produce
    • He was acquitted of three of the four charges and the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF) is appealing the jury verdict of the fourth charge on claims that key information was withheld that would have exonerated him
    • The hold order, which Hershberger was found guilty of violating, stated his food was “misbranded or adulterated” when in fact the food was neither; attorneys for the case believe this missing piece of information would have been enough for the jury to clear him of all charges
    • The fight for food freedom isn’t just for those who love raw milk – it’s for everyone who wants to be able to obtain the food of their choice from the source of their choice
    A brilliant 6 mins of 'Is journalism being criminalised.'
    July 16, 2013 - The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) — a subject of fascination for many hams and the target of conspiracy theorists and anti-government activists — has closed down. HAARP’s program manager, Dr James Keeney at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico, told ARRL that the sprawling 35-acre ionospheric research facility in remote Gakona, Alaska, has been shuttered since early May.
    Currently the site is abandoned,” he said. “It comes down to money. We don’t have any.” Keeney said no one is on site, access roads are blocked, buildings are chained and the power turned off. HAARP’s website through the University of Alaska no longer is available; Keeney said the program can’t afford to pay for the service. “Everything is in secure mode,” he said, adding that it will stay that way at least for another 4 to 6 weeks. In the meantime a new prime contractor will be coming on board to run the government owned-contractor operated

    HAARP DISMANTLED ?  Not from What I heard.  Just changed hands.  Ooops.
    Take Care. Geoff
