Grip Strength and the Brain By John Steele

     My grand pop told me to judge a man by his handshake. Men with soft effeminate hands, beware! But, now research is indicating that there is so much more to grip strength:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-05-24-your-handshake-may-be-a-good-indicator-of-how-healthy-your-brain-is.html

“A hand grip may be a normal, everyday thing for men and women alike but a recent study showed that the strength of a handshake can indicate a person’s brain health. Using the data of 475,397 people from the general population in the U.K., and 1,162 participants who were diagnosed with schizophrenia, researchers discovered that grip strength is connected to the performance of the visual memory and reaction time of a person. This study has been proven in two groups where one has participants over 55 years old and the other has participants younger than 55. Aside from visual memory and reaction time, tests conducted during the research also included examinations for reasoning, prospective memory and number memory.

Winter Flu: Why? Climate Change: What! By Brian Simpson

     I noticed even as a child that wet winters brought colds and flu s, but when the summer came, the threat was much less. Some people thought that this was due to the temperature, but my guess was always based on the moisture content of the air being a more suitable environment for the germs to survive and thrive and generally lower temperatures. That view seems to be correct:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-05-16-science-explains-why-we-are-more-vulnerable-to-getting-sick-when-the-seasons-change.html 

“People are more vulnerable to getting sick when seasons change, especially during spring and fall, and experts may now know why. According to research, it’s not the cold air that makes people sick; rather, it’s the virus. Rhinoviruses and coronaviruses, the two main causes of the common cold, can multiply quickly when the weather is cool – but not too cold. “A lot of the viruses that cause the common cold are shown to cause outbreaks more frequently in the early to late spring and early to late fall,” explained Dr. Kittu Jindal Garg, an internal medicine specialist, in an interview with The Weather Channel. In the same way, the influenza virus multiplies and spread more easily and rapidly when the air is cold and dry. As a result, people tend to catch the flu during winter.

Killing Everybody to Make the Economy Strong! By James Reed

     Shamefully, a conspiracy, tin foil hat guy like me did not go the final step and think of this one, which just shows how limited my intellect is. Never mind. Here is Mike Adam’s depopulation hypothesis, which I reproduce because Mike is a great guy that likes to spread the word. At first, I thought that the idea that governments just want us all to die was wrong because there was the agenda of white genocide and all that. But, probably he is right, for it just makes economic sense, in the black magic world of conventional economics, for everybody, sans the super-class, to just die to keep their system going:
  http://www.collapse.news/2018-05-18-why-governments-are-pursuing-depopulation-to-save-themselves-from-financial-collapse.html

“Ever wonder why governments allow so much deadly pollution to be dumped into food, water and soils? Part of the real reason may surprise you: Governments no longer want people to live long enough to collect entitlement benefits, and allowing the contamination of everything with death-inducing substances actually saves governments money by accelerating the death of citizens. This is all covered in my video, below. Here’s a brief introduction: Three generations ago, governments wanted more people to run the factories, settle rural lands and generate economic productivity that could be siphoned off by the political elite. Over time, continued promises of entitlements such as social security, Medicare, pensions and welfare payouts caused large populations to become financial burdens to the sustainability of those same governments.

The Fruits of Diabetes By Mrs Vera West

     If like me, you have diabetes and are using diet to control it, you need to be aware of your sugar intake. Not all fruits are suitable for you, some being naturally high in fructose, a form of sugar:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-05-10-which-fruits-are-safe-to-eat-if-youre-diabetic.html

“One study involving over 45,000 participants in the Singapore Chinese Health Study reported that certain types of fruits decreased the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, while some types increased the risk, dietary and lifestyle factors notwithstanding. The participants, aged between 45 to 74 years, and had no diabetes, cancer or cardiovascular disease upon recruitment (1993 to 1998), answered a validated food-frequency questionnaire in order to assess their fruit intake. The researchers then conducted follow-up interviews with the participants – one in 1991 to 2004, and one in 2006 to 2010 – and found that over 5,000 of the participants developed Type 2 diabetes during these follow-up periods.

Let’s Talk about the Coming EMP By John Steele

     I am not aware of any interest, outside of this site about the EMP (electromagnetic pulse) issue in Australia. With the threat of a war with China fast approaching, ordinary people should be aware that EMP attacks, by exploding an atomic bomb in the atmosphere, have the capacity to knock society back to a pre-electric era, by destroying unprotected electronics, and that is a lot of the modern world: There is some discussion of this issue in the US, where, unlike Australia, the issue is being taken seriously:
  http://readynutrition.com/resources/emp-commission-warns-of-year-long-blackout-and-a-massive-death-toll_14052018/ 
  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/emp-commission-warns-of-year-long-blackout-and-a-massive-death-toll_05102018

“A federal EMP commission report warns that even the smallest EMP attack on our grid system would down it for about a year, if not longer.  A year-long blackout would certainly be coupled with a massive death toll that would devastate entire populations. The so-called EMP Commission report said that this threat is very real, jeopardizes “modern civilization,” and would set back living conditions to those last seen in the 1800s. As a result of the chaos, millions would likely die, according to the report titled “Assessing the Threat from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP),” from the recently re-established Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack.

The Lamps of Death By Brian Simpson

     It looks like even streetlights, of a type, may kill us, in a way:
  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/warning-5g-tech-in-wifi-street-lamps-causing-insomnia-nosebleeds-stillbirths_05232018

“A man in the United Kingdom is warning that the 5G technology found in street lamps can cause some moderate to severe health concerns.  A few of those concerns include nosebleeds, insomnia, and the more severe stillbirths. One man has decided to speak out about a sudden spike in health problems he believes are related to LED street lamps that purportedly emit 5G radiation. In Gateshead, a town in Northern England, citizens are reporting an array of disturbing side effects including insomnia, nosebleeds, and even stillbirths. However, Mark Steele has something to say about it. According to Natural News, Steele, 58, is a local resident in Gateshead and reportedly is a member of the IEEE, an organization which describes itself as “the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.”

The Mobile Phone Mobile Mummy By Mrs Vera West

     I hate mobile phones too, which have captured the minds of the young and are probably going to lead to a rise in brain cancers, if not the rot of all things decent:
  http://www.afr.com/lifestyle/health/new-reports-released-into-mobile-phonecancer-link-20180203-h0t3ug

     If there really were definitive studies demonstrating a cancer link, do you think the system would do anything about it given the money involved? We live in environments full of dangerous chemicals, chemicals that suck away manhood and destroy testosterone, but the system says that is the price of modernity and consumerism. Social problems like this one is merely water off of a very large duck’s back:

A Fat World By Mrs Vera West

     This is a sensitive topic for women, so let me address it as an old woman who is “fat,” or as I less brutally prefer to say, “overweight,” mainly because the arthritis in my back and knees limits the amount of exercise I can do. As well, my diet was too grain based before I moved to a basic vegan diet, so the weight stayed on. For most people, given wrong nutritional information by the Big Carbo companies, even with many so called “health foods,” over the years, the weight piles up, just like debts. This is not going to end well, as this report details:
  https://www.afp.com/en/news/2265/world-faces-staggering-obesity-challenge-study-doc-1590mi1

“In 27 years from now, almost a quarter of the global population will be obese, researchers said Wednesday, warning of the mounting medical bill. If current trends continue, 22 percent of people in the world will be obese by 2045, up from 14 percent last year, according to research presented at the European Congress on Obesity in Vienna. One in eight people, up from one in 11, will have type 2 diabetes -- a form of the disease that generally hits in adulthood as a result of being overweight. “These numbers underline the staggering challenge the world will face in the future in terms of numbers of people who are obese, or have type 2 diabetes, or both,” said researcher Alan Moses of Danish healthcare company Novo Nordisk’s research and development department. “As well as the medical challenges these people will face, the costs to countries’ health systems will be enormous,” he added. In the United States, the researchers found obesity will increase from 39 percent of the population in 2017 to 55 percent in 2045, and diabetes from 14 percent to 18 percent.”

Are Atheists Genetic Mutants? By Brian Simpson

     Not just atheists, but related insect species such as liberals, have been the subject of my late night  deep mediations with a bottle of wine, regarding the hypothesis that such beings are genetic mutations, and deleterious ones at that. Until now, I have not revealed my deep, dark thoughts. But, then there is this paper: “The Mutant Says in His Heart, “There Is No God”: The Rejection of Collective Religiosity Centred Around the Worship of Moral Gods Is Associated with High Mutational Load,” Evolutionary Psychological Science, December, 2017, at
  https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs40806-017-0133-5
  https://www.vdare.com/articles/are-atheists-genetic-mutants-a-product-of-recent-evolution

“Industrialisation leads to relaxed selection and thus the accumulation of fitness-damaging genetic mutations. We argue that religion is a selected trait that would be highly sensitive to mutational load. We further argue that a specific form of religiousness was selected for in complex societies up until industrialisation based around the collective worship of moral gods. With the relaxation of selection, we predict the degeneration of this form of religion and diverse deviations from it. These deviations, however, would correlate with the same indicators because they would all be underpinned by mutational load. We test this hypothesis using two very different deviations: atheism and paranormal belief. We examine associations between these deviations and four indicators of mutational load: (1) poor general health, (2) autism, (3) fluctuating asymmetry, and (4) left-handedness. A systematic literature review combined with primary research on handedness demonstrates that atheism and/or paranormal belief is associated with all of these indicators of high mutational load.”

Are the Universities Driving Young People Insane? By James Reed

     In my unprofessional opinion, the answer would be: yes:

“The number of college students labelled with depression, anxiety, and other psychological problems is increasing, leading colleges and universities to provider a greater number of special accommodations for them. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, as many as 25 percent of students enrolled in elite colleges are now classified as depressed, anxious, attention-impaired, and other labels that, under federal law, entitle them to special learning accommodations. Some students are labeled with more than one disability. A simple note from a doctor allows a student to be classified as “disabled” and requires a school to provide the accommodations that correspond to his or her “disability.”

How to Foster Famine - By Viv Forbes

     Famine has haunted humans for most of their history. In the days of the Pharaohs, whenever the Nile River failed to flood, Egypt starved. Joseph was called in and he organised stockpiling of grain for famine relief. Even mighty Rome suffered famines – in 436 BC thousands of starving people threw themselves into the Tiber. The cold Middle Ages in Europe were haunted by famines. In the 11th and 12th century, famines averaged one in 14 years. Even in England there were 22 recorded famines in the 13th century. In 1235, 20,000 people died in London and people ate horse flesh, bark and grass. There were great famines in India, Bengal, France, China and Russia.

     In more recent times, man-made famines were more common in the Comrade Societies – some wit once remarked that “Soviet agriculture has just suffered its 23rd consecutive year of unseasonal weather”. Some famines were deliberate policy such as Stalin’s liquidation of the Kulaks in 1918 and his starvation of Ukraine in the 1932-33, while other dictators like Mao in China and Pol Pot in Cambodia caused famine with destructive collectivist farm policies. Famines eased in Europe and North America from about 1860, partly because crops improved with warmer weather and also because of the great increases in land opened up in the Americas for farming and grazing.

The British Gender Agenda By Mrs Vera West

     Isn’t it amazing, incredible in fact, that we are having a literal explosion of these gender identity issues now? We may believe that these are socially constructed by media attention, but while the social construction explanation is used by the Left for everything else, such as race issues, which don’t exist being social constructions, unless it can somehow be used against primarily Northern European whites, for gender identity, that is definitely real and not a social construction.
  https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/6306769/2356-children-including-kids-age-4-are-seeking-help-for-gender-issues/

“A RECORD 2,356 children including some as young as four are seeking medical help for gender issues. The number referred by GPs last year has more than tripled from 673 in 2014/15. They were assigned to The Tavistock Centre in North London, the UK’s only facility for such issues in under-18s. Official NHS figures show most cases involve 15 and 16-year-olds. But 329 patients were under 13. Reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner raised awareness after transitioning in 2015. Clinic director Dr Polly Carmichael said: “There is no single explanation for the rise. There has been significant progress towards the acceptance and recognition of transgender and gender-diverse people.”

British White Privilege By Richard Miller

     Here is an update on some of the goings on regarding white privilege in Britain, something which will no doubt be happening here in little old Oz some time soon:
  https://news.sky.com/story/nhs-must-do-more-to-tackle-white-privilege-trust-chief-says-11388667

“The NHS must do more to tackle “white privilege” and increase black and minority ethnic (BAME) representation among senior managers and directors, a leading hospital trust chief executive has told Sky News. Sarah-Jane Marsh, chief executive of Birmingham Women’s & Children’s NHS Trust, says she will no longer sit on any interview board panel that does not include a BAME member, after figures for her own trust revealed ethnic minority candidates were less likely to succeed at interview. Across NHS England as a whole, 18% of the 1.2 million staff are from a BAME background, but just 5% of very senior managers are non-white, compared to 27% of the lowest paid support staff. Ms Marsh says the lack of representation at senior levels means the NHS is not as diverse as the communities it serves, and may not be getting the best possible staff. “I know that in the NHS we have got a problem with ensuring that we have the right people in leadership positions to represent the diversity of our workforce,” she said.

Bees Die; Then Us By Brian Simpson

     Colony collapse disorder, which is threatening bee populations across the globe, continues to be an unsolved problem, but a problem that will ring in an era of hunger, if not starvation, if bee populations continue to crash. Around one third of all humanity’s food, and 80 percent of crops are pollinated by bees, so the best case scenario would be economic collapse:

     While many internet sites like to take a quick fix approach to this problem, putting the blame on neonicotinoid chemicals alone, a search of the scientific literature reveals that there are probably a whole range of insecticides, and maybe herbicides, and perhaps industrial pollution, which are impacting upon the honey bee:

Racial Differences in Athletics By Brian Simpson

     The view has been advanced, even by the racial realist types at American Renaissance that Blacks have superior athletic ability to Whites. The only objection in the mainstream to this, is that it is a subtle racist claim, that Blacks do not therefore match Whites in intellectual ability, which hardly follows as a logical inference. Otherwise the system is happy to go along with this, another dig at Whites. However, here is a recent article from the Canadians, led by that great intellect Professor Ricardo Duchesne, refuting that:
  https://www.eurocanadian.ca/2018/06/whites-are-better-in-almost-all-sports-and-strongest-in-world.html

“The scientific evidence is decisive: Whites, both males and females, dominate almost all the competitive sports. Blacks are very good in some sports, the sports that American media moguls love to showcase, basketball and football. They are also dominant in some athletics, but mainly just running. They are not good in all jumping competitions, white males and females absolutely dominate the pole vault Olympic medals. The constantly repeated phrase that “white men can’t jump” is a another lie of the establishment: White athletes have dominated the high jump. Just check the male and female Olympic medalists. As far as “major sports” are concerned: Whites dominate Hockey and Soccer and Tennis and Golf, and, to a considerable degree, Baseball as well. The majority of the top 100 Soccer players in the world are white. While some blacks have been excellent at Baseball, in a very good assessment “ranking the 25 best Baseball players of all time”, Whites outnumber non-whites 20 to 5.

AI: Demon Possessed Machines By Brian Simpson

     I knew it, but was too nervous to put it into print here because I did not want anyone to think that I was a right wing extremist:
  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/steve-quayle-robots-will-have-one-prime-directive-kill-all-humans_06122018

“Artificial intelligence continues to make strides and in doing so, will not only eliminate the need for human beings but cause death, according to Steve Quayle.  Quayle says that in the very near future, robots will have simply one prime directive and that will be: kill all humans. Radio legend, filmmaker, and prolific published book author Steve Quayle says the robot/transhumanism world of the elite will become fully visible in just a few years. In an interview with USA Watchdog’s Greg Hunter, Quayle contends, “When people ask me what is on the horizon beyond transhumanism, I can say to you, at this point, nothing. When they say it’s going to be in the year 2030 or 2045, in my opinion, and let’s see if it holds . . . my estimate, based on where we are now, they will start to manifest fully by 2022. These will be . . . “demon-possessed machines”. . . . Imagine a robot that is programmed, and you know what the final command that will be given to a robot will be? When they become totally autonomous and demon possessed, they will have simply one prime directive and that will be: kill all humans.”

Pesticides and the Crash of IQ By John Steele

     Could this explain why so many people today are so stupid? Could this explain why so many people do not have the capacity to “see it,” even though the internet has presented a wealth of information for viewing? Pesticides on the brain …
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-06-10-pesticides-stupid-agricultural-chemicals-lower-iq-of-children.html

“Three studies that examined children from very different backgrounds all reached the same conclusion: Prenatal exposure to these pesticides can have a significant long-term adverse effect on a child’s brain health, and it doesn’t matter if that exposure came from crops or cockroach control products. We’re not talking about a small difference, either; the exposure lowered children’s IQ by as many as seven points! In the two studies that took place in New York, inner-city children aged 6 to 9 who had been born to mothers who were exposed to chlorpyrifos noted working memory decreases of 2.8 percent and IQ drops of 1.4 percent for every increment of exposure. This means the effect is linear; those who had higher levels of exposure experienced more negative effects on cognition. It’s a drop that can cause serious problems in math and reading.

The Gentle Joys of Vaccination? By Mrs Vera West

     As the mainstream media tells us, those critical of vaccinations are all tin foil hat cranks. But, really?
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-06-14-new-study-proves-the-undeniable-connection-between-vaccination-and-autism-rates.html

“How much longer can those who profit from vaccines deny the connection between autism rates and vaccination? With incriminating evidence like the latest report from the Public Health Agency of Canada, their damage control experts will certainly have their work cut out for them. The agency is about to release its first national autism-related data since 2016, and it shows a steady rise in the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders in the years since 2003. The rates varied by location, with areas like Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and Newfound and Labrador having the highest prevalence. The story becomes a lot more interesting, however, when you compare the data in the report, which was taken from the Canadian National Autism Spectrum Surveillance System, with the Public Health Agency’s vaccine coverage data, which is broken down by province and vaccine type. It shows that autism prevalence is the greatest where the vaccine rates happen to be the highest. Surprised?
