Remember Cucumbers? By Mrs Vera West

     The humble cucumber is more than just an after-thought in your summer salad. It has important health benefits such as aiding memory. Just remember to put it into your summer salad, so that in the future, your memory improves and you remember to put it on your summer salad:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-01-18-cucumbers-prevent-memory-loss.html

“Before tossing away the cucumbers in your salad or sandwich because they taste a bit plain, consider their many health benefits, which includes preventing memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease. This effect of cucumbers was determined by researchers from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. In their study, they used mice as animal models for Alzheimer’s and its associated symptoms, such as memory loss. They found that mice that were given a daily dose of the flavonol called fisetin, which is found in cucumbers and other plant-based foods, exhibited a delay in the development of memory loss and Alzheimer’s symptoms. In some cases, these symptoms were even prevented completely. Another astounding discovery that the researchers made was that these improvements could be observed even if the mice continued to develop amyloid plaques, which are believed to be the major contributors to the progression and development of Alzheimer’s. Moreover, mice that did not have the neurodegenerative disorder still exhibited memory improvements after receiving fisetin. Fisetin is believed to improve memory by triggering a cellular pathway that involves the part of the brain that retrieves memories. Additionally, this flavonol has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that are effective on brain cells, thereby preventing them from aging and its associated effects.”

Music and the Brain By Mrs Vera West

     When one is engaged in fighting psycho-political warfare all day, some down time is necessary to recharge failing mental batteries. Music helps, but not the cacophony of modern music, if that is what it can be called. Classic music is what is needed and evidence indicates that music can alter your brain structure in useful ways:
  http://www.herbs-info.com/blog/music-boosts-your-brain-power-by-literally-altering-its-structure-as-you-learn-new-skills/?c=d

“There are many activities and lifestyle choices that have neurological benefits and promote overall brain health. One of these is listening to music, which a Scottish study revealed can be beneficial to special kinds of motor rehabilitation programs, such as stroke. The researchers published their findings in the medical journal Brain and Cognition in 2017. The study involved a team of science and health experts from the University of Edinburgh’s Institute for Music in Human and Social Development, Clinical Research Imaging Center, the Leiden University, and Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences. They recruited thirty right-handed volunteers for their investigation which divided the participants into two groups: the music group and the control (non-music) group. The first group used musical cues to learn a new task involving a sequence of finger movements with the non-dominant, left hand.

A Complete Cure for Cancer? By Brian Simpson

     Orthodox medicine has been promising a cure for cancer since Adam was a boy, and cynics would say that it was all part of the business of securing research funding to keep the labs going. Anyway, here is the latest claim, for your reading pleasure:
  https://www.jpost.com/HEALTH-SCIENCE/A-cure-for-cancer-Israeli-scientists-say-they-think-they-found-one-578939

“A small team of Israeli scientists think they might have found the first complete cure for cancer. “We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” said Dan Aridor, of a new treatment being developed by his company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), which was founded in 2000 in the ITEK incubator in the Weizmann Science Park. AEBi developed the SoAP platform, which provides functional leads to very difficult targets. “Our cancer cure will be effective from day one, will last a duration of a few weeks and will have no or minimal side-effects at a much lower cost than most other treatments on the market,” Aridor said. “Our solution will be both generic and personal.”

Is it Right to Say that Vaccines Kill More than They Cure? By Mrs Vera West

     This claim has recently been made by Natural News.com, and is a much stronger claim than anything made by the relatively mild anti-vaxxers in Australia. I am not sure whether this argument is correct or not, but here is its essence for you to make up your own mind:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-01-31-vaccine-induced-disease-now-a-top-global-health-threat-for-2019-and-beyond.html

“Contrary to what the propaganda-spreading World Health Organization (WHO) purports, modern day vaccines are responsible for more deaths than the diseases they are intended to create immunity against. This is a fact based on sound science. Let’s review some examples, and then we’ll discuss shedding – the common way infectious diseases are spread by children and teens during the first two weeks after they are injected with multiple strains of diseases, when their own immune systems are severely compromised, as are the other vaccinated children around them. First off, there have been 127 deaths caused by the measles vaccine in the past 15 years, but only 2 deaths caused by the measles disease itself. Secondly, just take a look at GlaxoSmithKline’s (GSK) 6-in-1 jab called “Infanrix Hexa” (meaning six diseases are injected into a baby’s muscle tissue all at once – a science phenomena no studies have ever shown to be safe).

The Virally Contaminated Deep State By Chris Knight

     Even if President Trump was sincere, which is highly unlikely, those around him have moved to neutralise absolutely everything he even pretends to do, such as immigration control and the wall. These elites are not actually traitors, because they are part of the Deep State globalist system. Ordinary deplorables, like you and me, are completely disposable, so if there are “traitors,” then it is us!
Let’s hear it from The New York Times:
  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/01/opinion/how-republicans-erased-trumpism.html

“Donald Trump has a Congress problem. He can’t get Republicans to promote his policies. And when he forces the issue — as with his border wall — he can’t win their support. But most Americans don’t know that. After all, Republican legislators voted with the president well over 90 percent of the time during the 115th Congress. Record numbers of appellate judges were confirmed, and the president signed major tax legislation. Many observers have concluded that Mr. Trump dominates the Republican Party, and his loyal base holds congressional Republicans tautly in line. But discerning legislative influence is more difficult than it appears. Throughout the first two years of the Trump presidency, Republican leaders in Congress skillfully used a variety of tactics to minimize the president’s influence and maximize their own control over public policy. Critically, congressional Republicans have adopted strategies that make the public — and more important, his conservative base — think Mr. Trump is in command. To casual followers of political news, the visible evidence from congressional votes and news releases suggests a powerful president leading a loyal congressional party. In reality, Republican legislators have hidden their influence, purposefully disguising a weak president with little clout on Capitol Hill while also preserving party unity.”

“In a scientific first, Columbia neuroengineers have created a system that translates thought into intelligible, recognizable speech. By monitoring someone’s brain activity, the technology can reconstruct the words a person hears with unprecedented clarity. This breakthrough, which harnesses the power of speech synthesizers and artificial intelligence, could lead to new ways for computers to communicate directly with the brain. It also lays the groundwork for helping people who cannot speak, such as those living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or recovering from stroke, regain their ability to communicate with the outside world. These findings were published today in Scientific Reports. “Our voices help connect us to our friends, family and the world around us, which is why losing the power of one’s voice due to injury or disease is so devastating,” said Nima Mesgarani, PhD, the paper’s senior author and a principal investigator at Columbia University’s Mortimer B.

Facebook to Ban Everything (Just to be Sure) By Mrs Vera West

     It started with those questioning the system on the race and immigration issues, then it went to banning critics of feminism and pick up artists, and now it is all systems go, as anti-vaxxers and others get the chop:
  https://www.cbsnews.com/news/facebook-announces-plans-to-block-anti-vaccination-content/

“Facebook is cracking down on the spread of vaccine misinformation, the company announced Thursday. The changes come as tech giants are facing criticism for their role in disseminating false medical information in the wake of a massive measles outbreak in the Pacific Northwest in January. Facebook will now de-prioritize medical myths across the platform, taking action against verifiable vaccine hoaxes, the company said. Misinformation will now appear less frequently in News Feeds, both public and private pages and groups, search predictions and recommendations, according to Facebook. "We are working to tackle vaccine misinformation on Facebook by reducing its distribution and providing people with authoritative information on the topic," Monika Bickert, VP, Global Policy Management, said in a statement. Facebook also says it will start rejecting ads that include vaccine misinformation and disable ad accounts that violate its policies. "Leading global health organizations, such as the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have publicly identified verifiable vaccine hoaxes. If these vaccine hoaxes appear on Facebook, we will take action against them," Bickert said. Facebook will also share education information about vaccines to people who have uncovered misinformation. "We also believe in providing people with additional context so they can decide whether to read, share, or engage in conversations about information they see on Facebook," Bickert said. "We are exploring ways to give people more accurate information from expert organizations about vaccines at the top of results for related searches, on Pages discussing the topic, and on invitations to join groups about the topic."

Saturated by Saturated Fat False News By the Grumpy Granny Mrs Vera West

     So, another myth bites the dust, that saturated fats, and hence foods such as butter, cream, eggs and good old red meat, are just toxic waste:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-03-06-doctors-admit-saturated-fat-does-not-cause-heart-disease.html

“In a recent cardiologist-led study of over 3,600 adults, another conventional health myth has been completely obliterated by real science. For years, MDs and pharma shills have been pushing their theory that saturated fats clog arteries and lead to heart disease, which translates to an early death. Now, science is proving that some of the good saturated fats found in coconut oil, butter, cream, avocados and organic nuts actually lower blood pressure. …

Childhood Diseases and Cancer By Mrs Vera West

     In the past parents would hold say chicken pox parties, so all the kids would get the childhood disease and have natural immunity. Today, vaccines are the magic bullet, but we are no longer permitted to criticise them.    However, there is still a body of evidence that indicates that getting childhood diseases had an important role in preventing various cancers in adulthood. For what it is worth, here are some links, some a bit technical, but included is a more readable account:
  https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S030698779890055X

  https://www.news-medical.net/news/20180522/Childhood-leukemia-linked-to-lack-of-childhood-infections.aspx

“Lack of infections during childhood is a common trend in obsessively clean environments that the babies grow up in today. According to Prof Mel Greaves from the Institute of Cancer Research in London, winner of the Royal Society’s prestigious Royal Medal, childhood leukemias are caused not just due to aberrant genetics or due to exposure to dangerous radiation but also due to lack of common infections during childhood that help build immunity. Greaves’s theories and evidence from the earlier works have been released in a paper that was published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Reviews Cancer. His work compiles information from globally situated experts in cell biology, immunology, genetics, childhood leukemia and epidemiology.

For Ladies Only By Mrs Vera West

     Good, the men have waddled off to drink beer, and wet themselves, so we ladies can have a heart-to-heart talk about … incontinence. It is a bigger problem that most of us think, as we usually suffer alone:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-6824041/One-three-women-suffers-incontinence-rate-range-products-claim-help.html

“One in three women suffers with incontinence, usually as a result of weakening of the muscles that control urination, such as the urethral sphincter, or the pelvic floor (a hammock of muscles that runs from the pubic bone to the spine, supporting the bladder, bowel and womb). There are different types, including stress incontinence — the most common form — which leads to leaks of urine when you cough, sneeze or laugh. Urge incontinence causes a sudden need to go as the bladder spasms. There is a range of products that claim to help with these problems. We asked Dr Penelope Law, a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist at Hillingdon Hospital and The Portland Hospital in London, to assess a selection. We then rated them.”

Things go Better with Coke, Cancer and Heart Disease By Mrs Vera West

     I did not know that things were this bad; rotting teeth, yes, but all the rest? It is a health apocalypse.
  https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/8660216/drinking-coke-diet-coke-increases-risk-dying-young/

“DRINKING Coke or Diet Coke everyday could increase your risk of dying young, experts have warned. Two cans of regular Coke increases the risk of early death from heart disease by a third. Sugar-laden fizzy drinks also increase the risk of early death from any cause by a fifth - and are also fuelling a rise in cancer cases, Harvard experts said. While swapping to Diet Coke - or diet versions in general - is better, drink more than four a day and you're still at risk of dying young. In fact, previous studies have shown that the six common artificial sweeteners - aspartame, sucralose, saccharin, neotame, advantame and acesulfame potassium-k - have all been found to be toxic to gut bacteria. They've been associated with weight gain, slashing the chances of getting pregnant during IVF, tripling the risk of a deadly stroke and dementia, and raising the risk of developing diabetes. Stick to water. Experts said the best option is to ditch fizzy drinks altogether and stick to water instead.

US Abortionists Cutting Babies’ Throats, but Not Discriminatory! By Mrs Vera West

     With all of the debate about the evils of discrimination, one would have thought at first glance that abortion would be such a discrimination, against the life of a living being, just as animal rights folk argue in parallel. But, no, the hypothetical right to life of the foetus is always trumped by feminist values, so that infanticide is now effectively permitted in New York.

Enter, Epigenetics By Brian Simpson

 

         Epigenetics is the study of the effects of environmental factors upon genes. Genes basically produce proteins that are encoded into the body, as the building blocks of life. It was once thought that the central controlling mechanism of the cell, now known as the cell nucleus, did not have its heritability qualities affected by environmental factors. Not so:

Go Vegan and Die? Man Wants Us to Eat More Red Meat, The Food of Champions! By John Steele

     Here is an item from the light and fluffy department, where a man decides to give vegans a serve. I have nothing against vegetables; some of my best friends are vegetables! But vegans often get so up on their high and mighty, looking down on us meat eaters from imagined lofty moral high grounds. Anyway, even though this video is in Dutch, you can enjoy the site of a man chomping away on a great slab of raw meat, while vegans around him, faint from the microagressions. Well, not exactly, these lovers of peace have got a big cop on the scene to deal with the carnivore.

A Metaphor for the West By Peter West

     Here is a good one which people ae taking as a metaphor for America, but it is just as relevant to Australia, or Western Europe; an obese man, planning to go out eating and gaming, with all guns blazing so to speak:

“34-year-old Casey King is so obese that he can’t work, he has to bathe outside in a trough like a pig, and he has to rely on his father to constantly take care of him. He now weighs more than 700 pounds, but he just keeps on eating massive amounts of unhealthy food. Just like America as a whole, he has absolutely no self-discipline and absolutely no desire to turn his life around. On some level he understands that he is literally killing himself with his destructive behavior, but he does not have a desire to change. Instead, he told TLC that he “will just eat until I am dead”… Featuring in a TLC TV series called Family by the Ton, Casey said: “I will just eat until I am dead, probably. “I wake up around 12, figure out something I’m going to eat immediately [then it’s] TV, video games, bed — it’s not a lot of activity. Because of the hot weather in Georgia he prefers to skip clothes, wearing only a headset through which he uses to chat to other gamers playing online.”

Acupuncture for Back Pain? By Mrs Vera West

     Having arthritis in my lower back, like so many oldish folk, each morning I have been lathering up my back with copious amounts of the common pain killer, diclofenac, which I have just found out, could kill me:
  https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/7177122/common-painkiller-diclofenac-heart-attack-stroke/

“A COMMON painkiller prescribed to millions of people could increase the risk of heart attack or stroke by 50 per cent, experts have warned. Diclofenac - marketed under the brand name Voltarol or Voltaren in the US - can cause heart failure and irregular heartbeats, new findings show. The drug was recently withdrawn from being sold over the counter in the UK - over fears about serious side effects. It's widely used to treat a range of painful conditions, typically back pain, headaches and arthritis. Since January 2015, it has only been available in the UK with a prescription, but it can still be bought over the counter in most other countries, including the US and parts of Europe.”
