The Paradox of Diet and Health By Mrs Vera West

     I have been exploring for some time, alternative health treatments, via herbs such as turmeric. However, what I have noticed is that the alternative health sites seldom report on side effects, although the side effects of Big Pharma drugs are well documented, and most medications come with information sheets detailing these, always with the wise words, that “all medications can have side effects.” Side effects are built into our biochemistry.     Having had kidney stones, I began researching the causes of kidney stones, mainly being oxalates, chemicals that bind with calcium to form insoluble stones:

     I was amazed to find that most of the healthy foods I had adopted to lower blood pressure (e.g. dark sugar free chocolate), and to avoid irritable bowel syndrome, were high in oxalis. This not only included nuts, but many otherwise healthy vegetables and high anti-oxidant fruit.

Turmeric and Psychiatric Disorders By Mrs Vera West

     Yet another health benefit for turmeric consumption:

“A study carried out by researchers at Australia’s Murdoch University found that curcumin extracts reduced people’s anxiety and depression scores. They noted that it was particularly effective at alleviating anxiety. Moreover, even low doses of the spice extract were effective in addressing depression. In addition, the researchers found it worked quite well on those with atypical depression, which is a marker of bipolar depression. Curcumin has been found in other studies to be just as effective as one of the most popular SSRI antidepressants on the market, Prozac, making it an excellent option for those who wish to avoid the negative side effects of this psychiatric medication. It works by raising levels of dopamine and serotonin, two vital neurotransmitters related to depression. In addition, because depression is believed to be caused by chronic inflammation, it makes sense that curcumin’s ability to reduce inflammation could alleviate depression.

Covering for Vaccines in Communist China By Mrs Vera West

     Sure, vaccines are good for you, and only crazed right wing fringe dwellers would think otherwise. Why, just ask the Chinese:

“The Chinese government has admitted that hundreds of thousands more doses of children’s vaccines are faulty, bringing the total number of vaccines known to be defective there to nearly one million. The State Council of China announced that another batch of vaccines for diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus (DPT) that were produced by the firm Changchun Changsheng Biotechnology, were considered “substandard.” Most of the doses were sold to authorities in the Shandong province in northeastern China, and some have already been given to children. The latest batch of 247,200 vaccines joins the 253,338 defective DPT vaccines from the same company that were discovered last November, along with more than 400,000 produced by a different company. According to the South China Morning Post, 76 percent of those children who were given injections from the first substandard batch have already been treated by doctors, and there are now plans in place to treat those who received injections from the second batch. Although the Chinese government has done its best to prevent people from talking about the crisis, Chinese social media is still full of conversation about the topic. There have also been reports that the company used expired ingredients and altered testing records.’

Migrant Rocket Scientists Being Treated for Diseases By Charles Taylor

     The poor migrants hurtling towards the US border aiming to enrich America with their diversity and high educations and skills, mostly in rocket science, have faced many racist obstacles, especially from the greatest racist of them all, Mother Nature:

“Mexican officials stated that more than one-third of the 6,000 caravan migrants currently living in the border city of Tijuana, Baja California, are being treated for health-related issues. Some are being treated for infectious diseases like HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and chickenpox. The Tijuana Health Department warned that many of the migrants residing in their city are presenting serious health issues, Fox News reported on Thursday morning. A spokesman for the agency said that more than 2,200 of the estimated 6,000 caravan migrants are currently being treated. Of these, there are four confirmed cases of HIV/AIDS, four cases of chickenpox, and three cases of tuberculosis, the official stated. The department also claims that more than 100 migrants are infested with lice and there are multiple instances of skin infections. Officials also expressed concern that the unsanitary conditions in the shelters could lead to an outbreak of Hepatitis.”

Why Not Put a Cell Phone Tower on Every Person’s Head? By Brian Simpson

     As long as there is some personal benefit, technologies are accepted by the sheeple, like religious dogma handed down by the priestly cast in pre-Christian times. It seemingly does not matter how the products work; they could well be magic for all the masses care. And, if it kills them, well, as regards to information technology and social media, at least one can be in contract with one’s furry friends as one dies out:

“Five G technology, which will require cell towers every couple hundred feet in order to work, is perhaps the greatest technological fraud to date. It’s never been proven safe – and, in fact, has been shown to be threatening to the health of plants, animals, and humans. It all has to do with the type of radiation that’s emitted from 5G – radiation that penetrates human skin more aggressively than any other type of radiation currently emitted from consumer electronics. It’s actually in the same frequency range as what’s blasted by the naked body scanners present at American and British airports. “Today’s cellular and Wi-Fi networks rely on microwaves – a type of electromagnetic radiation utilizing frequencies up to 6 gigahertz (GHz) in order to wirelessly transmit voice or data,” explains the Environmental Health Trust (EHT) about the difference. “However, 5G applications will require unlocking of new spectrum bands in higher frequency ranges above 6 GHz to 100 GHz and beyond, utilizing submillimeter and millimeter waves – to allow ultra-high rates of data to be transmitted in the same amount of time as compared with previous deployments of microwave radiation.”

Hollywood Facials, Almost Unspeakable By Chris Knight

     Somethings are beyond bizarre. Consider:

“The quest for youthful skin has led women to try many exotic treatments. But the one chosen by actress Kate Beckinsale perhaps tops the lot – it involves the discarded foreskins of South Korean infants. The 45-year-old star underwent a facial for the first time last week that uses an epidermal growth factor serum containing stem cells cultivated from the discarded tissue of Korean baby boys. Miss Beckinsale boasted that the results are far more appealing than the ingredients. Alongside a picture of her make-up-free face, the mother-of-one told her fans on Instagram: ‘After a long flight, I do like to lie down and be covered in a mask of liquefied cloned foreskins – frankly who doesn’t?’ The £465 facial, which is performed by British-born beauty therapist Georgia Louise at her salon in New York, has become a favourite with celebrities. Sandra Bullock, 54, is credited with nicknaming it ‘the penis facial’."

Stop and Smell the Rosemary, While Drinking Pomegranate Juice By Mrs Vera West

     Here I will cover two things that we can do to increase out health, and they are simple. First, smelling the herb rosemary can improve memory:

“In 1987 the journal Planta Medica published the first study discussed here on the impact of rosemary on mice. This study was carried out by four scientists, and found that levels of the 1,8-cineole found in blood, and locomotion capabilities, were both elevated after the mice inhaled rosemary oil. Cineole is also known as eucalyptol, which is the compound making up most eucalyptus oils. Next came a study performed in 1998, conducted by the International Journal of Neuroscience. In this study, nine researchers from the University of Miami School of Medicine applied their curiosity to humans, rather than rats. They exposed 40 adults to several minutes of aromatherapy, some receiving rosemary, while the others received lavender, all while they worked on math equations. They discovered that those who received the lavender therapy were relaxed, but drowsy. And even though they did better with the math problems with the therapy, those with the rosemary therapy performed markedly better. They were far more alert and less anxious, as well as finished solving the problems much quicker.

A Right to Surgically-Based Happiness? By Mrs Vera West

Meditations on Drinking Lead By James Reed

     Do you like drinking lead? It is not a silly question, because the ancient Romans drank wine from lead containers, and look what happened to them. Anyway, we Aussies have a similar problem:

“Australian households have been officially advised to run their taps for at least 30 seconds in the morning amid fears of lead poisoning from plumbing products. The alert was issued in July by enHealth — a standing committee representing federal, state and territory health departments, the National Health and Medical Research Council and the New Zealand Ministry of Health — but not widely publicised. While lead is rarely used in water pipes in Australia, it is still widely used in a “range of plumbing products” such as brass fittings. It can dissolve into drinking water “particularly where water has been sitting in contact with these brass plumbing products for long periods”. Lead exposure can cause a wide range of symptoms ranging from muscle pains, fatigue, abdominal pains, headache, nausea and vomiting to seizures and coma. Infants and children are especially vulnerable as lead can impair brain development.”

An Aspirin a Day, May Not Keep the Doctor Away! By Mrs Vera West

     Many otherwise “healthy” people are taking a baby aspirin a day for cardiovascular health, but a study has questioned the benefits of this: J. J. McNeil (et al.), “Effect of Aspirin on Disability-Free Survival in the Healthy Elderly,” New England Journal of Medicine, October 18, 2018:

“BACKGROUNDInformation on the use of aspirin to increase healthy independent life span in older persons is limited. Whether 5 years of daily low-dose aspirin therapy would extend disability-free life in healthy seniors is unclear.

Life in the Amazon Jungle By Brian Simpson

     Wow, I had a bad feeling every time I got a book from Amazon, that people must be working in cages like beasts. No, that is optimistic, because presumably even in a cage one can still, in the worst case, do one’s business as my mother used to say, however messy. But, at Amazon you better wear a nappy, and be snappy, and happy:

“Amazon warehouse workers are forced to pee in bottles or forego their bathroom breaks entirely because fulfillment demands are too high, according to journalist James Bloodworth, who went undercover as an Amazon worker for his book, Hired: Six Months Undercover in Low-Wage Britain. Targets have reportedly increased exponentially, workers say in a new survey revealed over the weekend, and as result, they feel pressured and stressed to meet the new goals. Workers who pick up products for delivery at a warehouse in Staffordshire, UK use bottles instead of the actual toilet, which is located too far away, Bloodworth reported. They are afraid of being disciplined for idling and losing their jobs as a result, he added. Bloodworth told The Sun in an interview that the warehouse resembled a prison or an airport, with high security scanners that check workers for banned items like hoodies, sunglasses, and phones, and other employees who pat down workers to check for stolen goods.

Civilian Guns Really Do Save Lives By John Steele

     The gun banners always argue that wicked guns, of their own agency, get up, grow legs,  and take lives, and can’t save anyone, although, when it suits them, private security for their elites can have guns saving their live, saving them. But, consider this wonderful story:

“A good guy with a gun shot and killed an attacker at an Alabama mall “within seconds” of that attacker shooting and wounding two people. WVTM reports that the good guy, a Hoover, Alabama, police officer, shot the gunman, who was then pronounced dead at the scene. The incident occurred at Riverchase Galleria. Hoover Police Chief Nick Derzis said, “From the time that shooting took place, they engaged and it was safe within seconds that it happened. You don’t see that too often. So very, very proud of that.” Hoover Mayor Frank Brocato said, “Unfortunately, an individual lost his life. Unfortunately, one of our police officers had to engage that individual. He did so as a professional. He did so at the risk of his own life. But he stepped in to protect thousands, and I’m grateful for that.”

Beware, the Sentinelese! By Brian Simpson

     Did you hear about the guy who wanted to convert one of the last “primitive’ tribe on earth, but got killed by arrows? Obviously he had a good heart, but had not thought it through first. No, this was not in the Amazon jungle, but on an island off India, and the tribe is known as the Sentinelese, who live in the North Sentinel Island, India's remote cluster of Andaman and Nicobar. The Indian government forbids outsiders from going to the island. These people pretty much hate outsiders, and have thrown spears and fired arrows at “invaders.”

1.    “They live on an island 50 km west of Port Blair. Their numbers are believed to be less than 150 and as low as 40.2.    It is said they have made little to no advancement in the over 60,000 years and still live very primitive lives, surviving mainly on fish and coconuts.3.    They are very vulnerable to germs since they have not had contact with the outside world. Even a common flu virus carried by a visitor could wipe out the entire tribe.4.    Since the 1960s, there have been a handful of efforts to reach out to the tribe but all have largely failed. They have repeatedly, aggressively made it clear that they want to be isolated.5.    The only man believed to have succeeded in establishing friendly contact with the tribe was an Indian anthropologist Triloknath Pandit in 1991.6.    In the 1981, a cargo ship MV Primrose grounded on the reef surrounding North Sentinel Island. The crew were rescued after a week by an Indian helicopter. The wreckage of the ship is still visible in satellite images.7.    In 2006, the tribe killed two fishermen who strayed on to the island. They even rejected outside help after the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004, throwing spears and arrows at a rescue helicopter that flew above.8.    The Indian government has had strict laws that ensure that they are isolated. These laws prohibited anyone from making any unauthorised contact with these isolated aboriginals.9.    But in a major step earlier this year, the Indian government excluded this island and 28 others in the Union Territory from the Restricted Area Permit or RAP regime till December 31, 2022, news agency Press Trust of India reported. The lifting of RAP means foreigners can go to the island without permission from the government, PTI reported.”

The Globalist Dark Conspiracy to Eliminate Me and You! By Bruce Bennett

     What would the “normies,” the good men and women who do nothing, do if they were told that there is a conspiracy or great plan to eliminate them, and their kind from the face of the Earth? Sure, they would never believe this because no matter how many times the government bites and tears their flesh, they believe in the system, that gives them a little food, less sex, but plenty of expensive drugs and alcohol to keep them “comfortably numb”:

     Anyway, here is Mike Adams in full flight on his pet theme, that the globalists are actively moving to kill us all, maybe even the migrants, whom I thought were to play the role of secular saints in the globalist theocracy. The plan first involves the use of AI to replace humans in all the jobs that we once had, and then the robots will be given the vote and programmed to vote commo, which is what the migrants do now. As robots are lower cost than migrants, it is natural that the soulless elite would move to replace them and us, on that ground alone. Then there is all of the environmentalist bs, which we know is all false news, every single drop of it:

Death by Surgical Robot By Brian Simpson

     Here is a potential nightmare; one is booked for robotic surgery, which they say is better than that performed by a human surgeon. Then, after you are tied to the table, the robot goes mad and slices and dices you like a hamburger:

“A surgeon has described the tense atmosphere in an operating theatre as a pioneering robotic heart operation went catastrophically wrong. At one point one of the assisting medics had his arms knocked by the robot which was being used to repair retired music teacher and conductor Stephen Pettitt's heart valve, an inquest was told. Communication between lead surgeon Sukumaran Nair and his assisting surgeon Thasee Pillay was difficult because of the 'tinny' sound quality coming from the robot console being operated by Nair.”

Toilet Plume? By Brian Simpson

     I was the unlucky one to draw the dirty  straw for this article, a real worrier, maybe not equal to the TPP or immigration, but still a concern to all public toilet goers, neurotically obsessed like me, with germs.

“We know fecal bacteria shoots into the air when a lidless toilet flushes — a phenomenon known, grossly, as a "toilet plume." But in bathrooms where such plumes gush regularly, where does all that fecal bacteria go? Into a hand dryer and onto your clean hands, perhaps. That's what a new study suggests. Researchers examined plates exposed to just 30 seconds of a hand dryer compared to those left in, you know, just plain feces-filled air. The findings: Air-blasted plates carried 18-60 colonies of bacteria on average, whereas two minutes' exposure to the mere bathroom air left fewer than one colony on average. What's more, the inside of the dryer nozzles themselves had "minimal bacterial levels." The results were published recently in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology.”

Mobile Phones Cause Cancer By Mrs Vera West

     Mobile phones irritate me, almost as much as the people who use them. Now there is strong evidence that such devices cause cancer, not that I would wish harm to irritating people:

“It’s something that’s been widely debated for years, and now scientists have ‘clear evidence’ that phone radiation causes cancer - at least in rats. Researchers from the National Toxicology Program found that radiation from phones using 2G and 3G caused male rats to develop cancerous tumours in the heart and brain. Dr John Bucher, who led the study, said: “We believe that the link between radio frequency radiation and tumours in male rats is real.” In the study, the researchers housed rats in special chambers, where they exposed the animals to phone radiation from the womb and through their lifetime.”

Surgery in the Future: How to lose a kidney in One Easy Step By chris Knight

     This may be more common, as medicine becomes subjected to the same forces of decline as everything else:

“A Florida surgeon mistook a woman’s healthy kidney for a cancerous tumor — and inexplicably removed it during a routine back surgery, according to a report. Maureen Pacheco, then 51, checked into Wellington Regional Medical Center back in April 2016 to get the bones in her lower back fused in the wake of a car accident, The Palm Beach Post reported. During the operation, Dr. Ramon Vazquez spotted the organ — which he believed to be a tumor, declared an emergency and removed it, according to a lawsuit obtained by the paper that was settled in September. Pacheco never had a say in the matter, according to the lawsuit. And Vazquez wasn’t even the one performing the back surgery. His job was to cut her open so surgeons could perform the operation. “As you can imagine, when someone goes in for a back surgery, she would never expect to wake up and be told when she’s just waking up from anesthesia, that one of her kidneys has been unnecessarily removed,” Pacheco’s attorney, Donald J. Ward, told the paper. Florida’s Department of Health has since filed a complaint against Vasquez — saying he provided a “presumptive diagnosis of a gynecologic malignancy, lymphoma, and/or other metastatic disease.”

Time Travel and Social Media By Brian Simpson

     Readers would no doubt tune in to the great sense of anxiety that writers have for the future, and the almost frantic desire to warn people before it is too late. This comes from a deep, if not manic, preoccupation with reading and analysing information. Yet, we are not the only ones concerned about the future, for young people too, have picked up, perhaps at a more intuitive level, how this is all going to play out, and they like the idea of time travel to escape it, meaning that the misery of modern existence is now totally global, and there is no other place to run:

“Today's teens prefer texting over in-person communication, use social media multiple times a day, and admit that digital distractions interfere with homework, personal relationships and sleep, according to a new survey of 13- to 17-year-olds. Why it matters: Concerns over the negative impact of social media use have increased recently with reports of teen depression, suicide and cyberbullying on the rise. The study by Common Sense Media, a non-profit group focused on tech and media's impact on kids, shows teens have a complicated relationship with technology. In what was perhaps the study's most surprising finding, roughly 40% of the teens surveyed said they wish they could go back in time to an era before social media. The impact: Interestingly, despite the increased use of social media, teens are more likely to say that social media has a positive effect on them. For instance, 25% say using social media makes them feel less lonely, compared to 3% who say it makes them feel more lonely. Yes, but: Still, more than two-thirds of teens agree with the statement, "social media has a negative impact on many people my age." And 40% agree with the statement, "I sometimes wish I could go back to a time when there was no such thing as social media."

Porn on the Brain By Mrs Vera West

     One of the sad aspects of the feminist breakdown of normal relationships, which once kept sex in marriage, is that many young men turn to porn, as it is now just too hard to deal with hyper-feminist girls. However, there is a large amount of research showing that porn has destructive impact upon the brain, as this very good article mentions in passing:

“Sex addiction, as the narrator explains, is much like drug addiction. Orgasms release endorphins, which, much like the morphine for which they are named, serve to kill both physical and emotional pain. This can be very desirable for those with unhappy lives like Victor’s, and can cause a dependence which is difficult to break. A great deal of research has resulted in evidence that sex or pornography addiction is connected with changes in brain function and structure in a similar way to other addictions. Chronic porn use  may alter areas of the brain, including the prefrontal cortex, which is the area responsible for conscious decision-making, self-restraint, and concern for consequences. It is arguably what separates man from beast, as this area makes up much more of the human brain than that of any other animal.
