Detox Your Liver with These Natural Organic Herbs

(www.Borganic.org) Maybe you have a childhood memory of forgetting to clean your fish tank's filter. After all, it's easy to forget a fish tank even has a filter until it's so clogged up it starts to malfunction. Eventually, the tank is covered in slime and the health of your fish begins to fail. This scenario is much like the way we view our liver today. We often overlook the importance of the liver until it begins to adversely affect our health. However, this organ plays a vital role in cleansing, detoxifying and purification on a daily basis. The liver is also where many important nutrients are metabolized. Without a healthy liver, we cannot be healthy.

If you want to keep the environment clear and healthy in your fish tank, regular filter maintenance is a must. Similarly, if you want to enjoy vibrant health, maintaining your liver is crucial. When liver health is declining, you may experience a variety of symptoms including fatigue, sluggishness, hormone imbalances, acne, headaches and more.

In our literally toxic modern society, maintaining liver health is more important than ever. These natural herbs provide potent results in detoxifying and restoring the liver:

Milk Thistle. By far the most famous herb for liver health, milk thistle contains antioxidant flavonoids, which protect liver cells from damage by preventing toxin absorption and enhancing regeneration. Milk thistle is a part of most popular liver tonics, and it can also be ground fresh and sprinkled over food.

Artichoke. Thought to have a protective effect on liver cells, artichoke can aid liver regeneration and improve its function. It also supports bile production, which is important for digestion and assimilating valuable nutrients. Some clinical studies show artichoke can lower triglyceride levels, as well.

Dandelion. This herb makes an ideal liver treatment because it is highly effective and generally very safe (it is also quite inexpensive). All parts of the flower can be useful, but dandelion root is the most popular liver remedy, while the leaves are known for promoting kidney health.

Licorice. This remedy was often used in Eastern medicine to treat liver problems. One study reported licorice increased the production of interferon, which may explain this herb's unique ability to defend liver health from harmful toxins.

Keep in mind that any of these herbs should be used in conjunction with lifestyle factors which promote liver health, such as avoiding alcohol, caffeine and tobacco; staying active with regular exercise (even walking and yoga are highly beneficial); avoiding processed foods filled with junk sugars and chemical additives; and finally, learning to manage stress and developing healthy sleeping habits.

Potential For Fed To Hyperinflate

(www.borganic.org) always the question about what the Fed will do, more pressure on small and medium banks, municipal bond meltdown, bailouts cant go on indefinitely, looking at the banks, and recalling the French Revolution, the truth of fractional banking

The following information may be the most important we have ever published. One of our Intel sources, highly placed in banking circles, tells us that on 1/1/10 all banks that have received TARP funds have been informed by the Federal Reserve that they must further restrict any commercial lending. Loans have to be 75% collateralized, 50% of which has to be in cash, which is a compensating balance.

The Fed has to do one of two things: They either have to pull $1.5 trillion out of the system by June, which would collapse the economy, or face hyperinflation. This is why the Fed has instructed banks to inform them when and how much of the TARP funds they can return. At best they can expect $300 to $400 billion plus the $200 billion the Fed already has in hand.

We believe the Fed will opt for letting the system run into hyperinflation. All signs tell us they cannot risk allowing the undertow of deflation to take over the economy. The system cannot stand such a withdrawal of funds. They also must depend on assistance from Congress in supplying a second stimulus plan. That would probably be $400 to $800 billion. A lack of such funding would send the economy and the stock market into a tailspin. Even with such funding the economy cannot expect any growth to speak of and at best a sideways movement for perhaps a year.

We have been told that the FDIC not only is $8.2 billion in the hole, but they have secretly borrowed an additional $80 billion from the Treasury. We have also been told that the FDIC is lying about the banks in trouble. The number in eminent danger are not 552, but a massive 2,035. The cost of bailing these banks out would be $800 billion to $1 trillion. That means 2,500 could be closed in 2010. Now get this, the FDIC is going to be collapsed before the end of 2010, which means no more deposit insurance. This follows the 9/18/09 end of government guarantees on money market funds. Both will force deposits into US government bonds and agency bonds in an attempt to save the system.

This will strip small and medium-sized banks and force them into shutting down or being absorbed. This means you have to get your money out of banks, especially CDs. We repeat get your cash values out of life insurance policies and annuities. They are invested 80% in stocks and 20% in bonds. Keep only enough money in banks for three months of operating expenses, six months for businesses.

Major and semi-major banks are being told to obtain secure storage for new currency-dollars. They expect official devaluation by the end of the year.

We do not know what the exchange rate will be, but as we have stated previously we expect three old dollars to be traded for one new dollar. The alternative is gold and silver coins and shares. For those with substantial sums that do not want to be in gold and silver related assets completely you can use Canadian and Swiss Treasuries. If you need brokers for these investments we can supply them.

The Fed also expects a meltdown in the bond market, especially in municipals. Public services will be cut drastically leading to increased crime and social problems, not to mention the psychological trauma that our country will experience. Already 50% of homes in hard hit urban areas are under water, nationwide more than 25%. That means you have to be out of bonds as well, especially municipals.

As you can see, the Illuminist program is going to come quicker than we anticipated. That in part is because they have had to expedite their program, due to exposure in the IF, other publications and especially via talk ratio and the Internet. There is no doubt we have the elitists on the run.

We are reaching the masses. On TalkStreamLive.com we were on the Rumor Mill this past week and out of 50 talk radio programs we were 5th behind, Rush, Hannity, Dr. Laura and we were tied with Beck. On the Sovereign Economist on Wednesday night we were 5th behind Beck and Savage and ahead of Hannity. Both these programs are not well known and the Sovereign Economist is only about a month old. It shows you what you can do if you work hard enough at it.

The latest favorable events we are told are the seeds of recovery. The green-shoots of spring are to be harvested before winter sets in. We are skeptical of the strength and duration of such a recovery.

The underlying problems are still not being addressed. The US government and the Fed cannot bail out banking, Wall Street, insurance and government indefinitely via monetization. Impaired corporations, no matter what their size, have to be allowed to fail. Stimulus cannot be used indefinitely. Both have to be reigned in, because the longer this charade continues the worse the final outcome is going to be. As we predicted six year’s ago, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae and FHA are the wards of American taxpayers, as is AIG. All their financial conditions worsen every day. They have again been insuring subprime mortgages by the thousands and when they begin to reset next year, we will be back to 60% failure rates. Even government admits already they’ll see 20% failure rates. This, so that housing inventory can be cut from 11-1/2-months inventory to 7-months, again in order to bail out the lenders at the expense of taxpayers. Government and the Fed have no exit plans for these sinking ships, particularly Fannie, Freddie, Ginnie and FHA, never mind their meddling in the economy guaranteeing everything is sight. Benito Mussolini would be very proud of what they have done.

Then we have those on Wall Street, banking and corporate America who believe they are doing God’s work by looting the American public making outrageous profits by in part using taxpayer funds, and allotting themselves disgraceful bonuses as unemployment hovers at 22.2%. Haven’t these people heard of the French Revolution? Their arrogance has no bounds. The credit crisis hasn’t ended; the Fed has extended it by throwing money at problems. We have a mortgage market that is worse than it was a year ago, only kept from sinking by a tax credit 3% down. As a result now we have more than $1 trillion of new mortgage failures on the way.

Our monetary base has more than doubled. Interest rates will probably stay where they are for 18 months or more and we even have a dollar carry trade. The 2009 fiscal budget deficit was $1.5 trillion and 2010 will be worse. Government is not cutting expenses. They are increasing expenses.

In addition making matters worse corruption is flourishing via the incestuous revolving door between Wall Street, the Treasury, in a multiplicity of other appointments and with the Fed. Is it any wonder 75% of Americans want the Fed audited and investigated. That said, the present set of circumstances cannot be allowed to go on indefinitely. We cannot keep insurance, Wall Street and banking on life support forever. Not when we finance two occupations and an ongoing war, never mind our unfunded liabilities of Medicare, Social Security, etc. most all of these problems are being financed by debt to be paid by our great, great grandchildren. We just created $12.7 trillion for bailouts and the Inspector General tells us we are presently on the hook for $23.7 trillion. What happens if all the recipients need another $20 trillion?

The situation is still dire and the solution is temporary and unworkable and Washington and New York are well aware of this. The game will play out over the next few years. In the meantime the dollar will move lower and inflation, gold and silver higher.

Economics is not complex; it is very simple. Professors and economists would like to have you believe it is complicated when in fact they make it opaque, so you cannot understand it. The same is true with banking. In normal times through the century’s bankers using the fractional banking system usually lent 8 times their assets, or deposits. It was only until recently that the privately owned Federal Reserve told banks within the system to lend 40 times assets or more in order to accommodate the system.

All this is to cover to confuse and hide the truth of fractional banking. Bankers’ indebt borrowers with money they made up out of thin air. Debt is enslavement by the bankers upon the people by buying almost everyone off. In the final analysis banking is a fraud unless money is interest free. The Fed, and all the other banks are a fraud.

The game as we know it today began in 1694 when the Rothschild’s formed the privately owned Bank of England and the production of bank notes began and circulated along with sterling silver coins. The end result has been that the bankers own the world. The system today is based on confidence and trust, something that has been worn thin. A reflection of the loss of trust and confidence is that 75% to 80% of Americans want HR1207 and S604 passed by Congress, so that the Fed can be audited and investigated. The public no longer trusts the Fed and the banks. As a result the con game may well be coming to an end. Fifty years ago we and a handful of other conservative warriors set out to inform the public of the giant scam that the Fed really was. It has been a long hard road. Gary Allen and Alan Stang are gone and of the originals all that are left are G. Edward Griffin, Stan Monteith, Anthony Hilder and us. During our lifetimes we now probably will see the end of the Fed. Because the people have finally been awakened. It was a long hard battle that may soon come to fruition.

The final step will be the termination of the Federal Reserve and its monopoly on financial theft. Unfortunately it will mean the demise of the only financial system we have known for 315 years. We do not know as yet what the new system will be like, but the con game is over and most of the world’s inhabitants are broke. The debt that is owed simply cannot be repaid. Japan, the US, the UK and Europe will be the first to go followed by most of the rest of the world.

You ask who will be the big winners? Gold and silver of course. Just as we have been telling you they would for 9-1/2 years, since gold was $252.00 and silver $3.80. Look at the gains for those who listened. And, we still have a long, long way to go to preserve our wealth. Over all those years the gold suppression cartel fought to hold down gold prices by selling gold, using derivatives and futures and in collaboration with good producers such as Barrick Gold and others. Hopefully HR3996 (HR-1207) will now pass unchanged and we can take a look at what the Fed and the Treasury were doing and who aided them.

What we are witnessing in the US and world economy is the result of the greed of central banks to make as much money as possible before they have to collapse the system to bring about World Government.

Common Pain Medication Fuels Cancer Growth use organic remedies

(www.Borganic.org) Painkillers known as opiates are widely used to treat both acute and chronic pain. Morphine, in particular, is often used to relieve the pain experienced by cancer patients. But now comes evidence from two new studies that strongly indicates opiate-based painkillers actually fuel the growth and spread of malignancies.

The research presented in Boston on November 18, 2009, at "Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics," a joint meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, the National Cancer Institute, and the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer, advances the concept that opiate drugs are cancer promoters. The research also explains how protecting cancer cells from opiates may reduce cell proliferation, invasion and migration.

The concept that opiate drugs used to help cancer patients might be contributing to cancer recurrence developed about eight years ago from several unrelated clinical and laboratory studies. First, a 2002 palliative care study found patients who received spinal rather than systemic pain relief from opiate drugs lived longer. A short time later, Jonathan Moss, professor of anesthesiology and critical care at the University of Chicago, reported that several cancer patients receiving a selective opiate blocker called methylnaltrexone (MNTX) which was developed in the 1980s to treat opiate-induced constipation lived far longer than they were expected to. Other studies had similar results.

"These were patients with advanced cancer and a life expectancy of one to two months yet several lived for another five or six. It made us wonder whether this was just a consequence of better GI function or could there possibly be an effect on the tumors," Moss said in a press statement.

Patrick A. Singleton, PhD, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Chicago Medical Center, along with Moss, Joe G.N. Garcia, MD, professor of medicine at the University of Chicago, and colleagues decided to investigate the many peripheral effects of opiates that might encourage cancer growth and the potential benefits of blocking those effects. In laboratory studies using both cell cultures and mice, the scientists found that morphine did directly rev up the proliferation of tumor cells. It also inhibited the immune response, and promoted angiogenesis (the growth of the blood vessels that help "feed" tumors and allow them to thrive). In the research just presented by Singleton and colleagues, they focused on the mu opiate receptor as a regulator of tumor growth and metastasis and they documented the ability of MNTX to block the cancer-promoting effects of opiates on this receptor.

Bottom line: it appears time for doctors and patients to consider all the side effects of opiate pain relievers, including the fact they may spur cancer to grow. Blocking the cancer-fueling ability of opiates and/or using them for as short a time as possible -- or not at all unless absolutely necessary -- appears to be the safest, and healthiest course of action.

Stop eating processed and fried foods and you'll restore the body's natural defenses, study finds

(www.Borganic.org) There's a drugless and side effect-free way to reduce inflammation in the body, restore the body's natural defense system, lose weight, possibly increase lifespan and improve or prevent diabetes, cardiovascular disease and kidney disease. What's more, you can get the benefits from this natural health strategy no matter what your age or whether you already have a serious disease. So who's behind these "wild" health declarations? It's not a supplement maker or natural health group. Instead, the claims come from mainstream science -- researchers from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, to be exact.

Their findings, published in the October/November issue of the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism conclude there's a simple, inexpensive dietary intervention that could control weight even without changing caloric intake and help make people healthier in a host of ways. The key? Stop eating processed and fried foods.

According to the Mount Sinai study, these foods, which are abundant in Western diets, are loaded with harmful toxins called Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs). AGEs are produced when foods are heated, pasteurized, dried, smoked, fried or grilled. Then, once consumed and inside the body, AGEs adhere to tissues and oxidize them, causing inflammation which can result in numerous diseases. In fact, a long list of animal studies conducted by Helen Vlassara, MD, Professor and Director of the Division of Experimental Diabetes and Aging at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and her team have previously shown the dangers of AGEs. The oxidative stress from high oxidant levels and inflammation associated with long-term exposure to AGEs increase the risk of diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease and other chronic ills.

The new clinical study, conducted in collaboration with the National Institute on Aging (NIA), built on this earlier animal research but this time looked at what people ate and how it affected their bodies. The researchers studied 325 healthy adults and 66 with chronic kidney disease. A subset of 40 healthy participants and another nine with kidney disease were randomly assigned to follow a regular Western diet full of AGEs or to follow a diet with only one-half the amount of AGEs typically found in the American style of eating. Research subjects in the "AGE-less diet" group were advised to avoid grilling, frying or baking their food. Instead, they were told to eat food that was poached, stewed or steamed. There was no change in calories or nutrient intake during the time of the study.

After four months on the low-AGEs eating plan, the scientists checked the blood of the healthy research subjects. They found that AGE levels, lipid peroxides, inflammatory markers, and biomarkers of vascular function declined by as much as 60 percent. What's more, a similar reduction was found in the kidney patients after only one month on the AGE-less diet.

In addition, the research team found a positive effect on a cellular receptor for AGEs called AGER1. That's a critical finding because the AGER1 receptor is needed for removing toxic AGEs from the body. On the other hand, the participants with kidney disease, all of whom had extremely elevated levels of AGEs, had severely suppressed AGER1 receptors. The Mount Sinai scientists speculate that's because this important defense mechanism is "exhausted" as a result of persistently elevated AGEs.

But there's good news. After even a short period of not eating AGEs loaded fried and processed foods, the number of AGER1 gene copies was restored to normal levels among patients with kidney disease. That means by simply adjusting the diet to avoid processed and fried foods, the body was rebuilding its healthy defense system.

"What is noteworthy about our findings is that reduced AGE consumption proved to be effective in all study participants, including healthy persons and persons who have a chronic condition such as kidney disease," said Dr. Vlassara, the study's lead author, in a press statement.

"This suggests that oxidants may play a more active role than genetics in overwhelming our body's defenses, which we need to fight off disease. It has been said that nature holds the power, but the environment pulls the trigger. The good news is that unlike genetics, we can control oxidant levels, which may not be an accompaniment to disease and aging, but instead due to the cumulative toxic influence of AGEs."

How to Combat Colds and Flu with Tissue Salts

(www.Borganic.org) Tissue salts, also known as cell salts, are minerals - the same minerals that are found in the earth`s rocks and soil. Gentle, safe and non-toxic, tissue salts can be bought in pill form from virtually any pharmacy or health store and can provide the help the body needs in order to fight colds and flu.

Tissue Salts Explained

Dr. Schuessler, a 19th century German physician, discovered that the twelve of the inorganic salts found in the human body have specific physiologic functions. In short, he maintained that the inorganic mineral substances that constitute our planet earth are the complete basis of the composition of our body`s bone and blood, organs and muscles and he found that a cell salt deficiency or imbalance generally resulted in loss of health.

"Tissue salts are found in our food, or should be, when grown organically in mineral-rich soil. Modern-day agricultural practice, however, has leached soil of its life-sustaining minerals and promoted instead chemical fertilizers". Margaret Roberts, Tissue Salts for Healthy Living

Tissue salts are made by grinding minerals in lactose over six attenuations, a process called trituration. The result is a pill that is easily absorbed, containing a minute amount of a specific mineral salt.

Best Tissue Salts for Colds

To relieve the congestion, headaches and general symptoms of a common head cold, dissolve 2 each of the following tissue salts under the tongue and hourly thereafter until symptoms subside.

Ferrum Phos tablets (tissue salt no.4) to treat throbbing headaches, congestion, sore throat, runny nose and coughs.
Kali Mur (no. 5) to treat wheezing, aches, sinusitis, frequent common colds.
Kali Sulph (no. 7) to relieve symptoms of blocked nose and a sinus headache.

Best Tissue Salts for Flu

In addition to the above tissue salts, add the same dosage of Silica (tissue salt no. 12) to help heal infections and frequent bouts of flu.

If deciding to take tissue salts, it is not necessary to consult a homeopathic professional unless conditions are chronic, such as recurring throat infections or a history of worsening health problems. If a sick individual is already taking a remedy prescribed by a homeopath, however, taking another remedy out of sequence might interfere with or slow down treatment, according to qualified homeopathic practitioner, Joan Macdonald.

Food Sources for the above Tissue Salts

Herbs and foods containing Ferrum Phos include celery, horseradish, spinach, lentils, radishes, onions, walnuts, strawberries, apples, lettuce and nettle tops.

Herbs and foods that contain Kali Mur include yarrow, ginger, fennel, basil, borage and sage, green beans, carrots, beetroot, cauliflower, asparagus, peaches, apricots, pineapples lemons and plums.

Herbs and foods that contain Kali Sulph include watercress, parsley, linseed, mustard, melissa, oats, lettuce, endives, chicory, almonds, rye and wholegrain bread.

Herbs and foods rich in Silica include dandelion, horsetail, comfrey, maize, barley, oats, buckwheat, rice, soya beans, oranges, guavas and pomegranates.

Organic Natural Help for Sinus Infections

(www.Borganic.org) As fall allergy season heads into winter cold season, many of us are prone to suffer from sinus infections. Symptoms of sinus infections, or sinusitis, are similar to a common cold, but last longer. If symptoms last longer than two weeks, you probably have sinusitis. Sinus infections can last from three weeks up to three years if left untreated. Fortunately there are several natural remedies which may relieve and conquer sinus infections. Here are some of the best:

* Colloidal Silver can be used to irrigate the sinus cavities as well as taken internally to help fight off the infection. To irrigate the sinus cavities thoroughly, use a pump spray or squirt bottle and use a good amount of silver to get in all the sinus passages.

* Grapefruit seed extract is a wonderful supplement for sinus infection which can make a sinus infection disappear after only couple of days. Do not take the drops on an empty stomach, especially early in the morning.

* Using a neti pot helps keep your nasal passages healthy with all the pollution, pollen, dust and other irritants in the air. All you need to use in it is non-iodized salt, preferably sea salt.

* Potassium supplements help dry up mucous.

* Drink apple cider vinegar throughout the day in large glasses of water. ACV thins mucus.

* Cayenne pepper tincture will help clear the sinuses and it is also a great overall cold remedy.

* Let a hot shower run onto your forehead and nose and then clear all the mucus from your sinuses. Do this several times a day.

* Oil Pulling, a wonderful remedy from India, often alleviates sinus congestion within about 10-15 minutes.

* Licorice root helps reduce inflammation and stimulates the immune system to fight sinus infections. There are two types of licorice products.

* Eucalyptus soothes sore throats. It also has antiseptic properties and can help shrink swollen tissues such as swollen sinus passages.

* Peppermint can help calm mucous membranes. You may drink peppermint tea or steep the peppermint and breathe in the steam. You can also use peppermint in aromatherapy. The scent of peppermint when inhaled helps to ease your breathing.

* Drink eight to ten glasses of water every day.

* Drink warm tea to help dilute mucus.

* Ginger has long been known to relieve and prevent headaches. It is also an anti-inflammatory and can help relieve pain. Take in tincture or capsule form according to directions.

* Lemon balm is helpful in fighting off viruses and bacteria. Steep the dried leaves for 10 minutes in hot water. Strain and drink the tea warm. Alternatively, lemon balm tea can be used as a gargle.

* Echinacea often will knock out a cold in only a matter of days when taken in quantity. It helps boost the immune system and makes it function better. Take in tincture or capsule form with increased dosages at the onset of illness and decrease after three or four days. Do not take if you have an allergy to ragweed.

* Vitamin C and zinc can help shorten the duration of colds as well as reduce cold symptoms. Sinus infections often come as a result of lingering colds. If you fight a cold early, you can help stave off a sinus infection. Take capsule or lozenges during cold season, especially with the onset of any symptoms.

* Foods high in antioxidants help to build the immune system and prevent infections in the first place. Some of these foods include blueberries, cherries, artichokes, cranberries and pomegranates.

Protect Corporate Takeover of Organics

(www.Borganic.org) Two powerful lobby groups in the food industry, The Grocery Manufacturers of America and the Organic Trade Association, recently intervened as friends of the court in a federal consumer class-action lawsuit accusing the nation’s largest supplier of private-label organic milk of consumer fraud. In what has been described as “the largest scandal in the history of the organic industry” USDA investigators, in 2007, found that Aurora Dairy had willfully violated federal organic standards. However, industry lobbyists are now concerned that convicting Aurora will set a dangerous legal precedent. Aurora bottles private-label organic milk for Wal-Mart, Costco, Target, Safeway and many other grocery chains.

In August 2007 Bush administration officials were widely criticized for overruling career staff at the USDA and instead of decertifying Aurora as staff had recommended, banning it from organic commerce, the corporate dairy was allowed to continue in business under a one-year probation. Now agribusiness lobbyists are concerned that citizens prevailing in court, alleging fraud, will set a precedent necessitating large corporations to incur added expenses to more carefully check the sources and credibility of their organic suppliers.

“Due diligence by food manufacturers and retailers is the heart and soul of what maintaining the integrity of the organic label is about,” said Mark Kastel, Codirector of The Cornucopia Institute, the farm policy research group that initially exposed the corruption taking place at Aurora.

It's already too late to shut the door on GM foods

(www.Borganic.org) A report from the British Royal Society has been released that urges support for genetically-modified foods by the British public in order to address what it deems the world's growing demand for food. The report also reveals the disturbing reality about just how far genetically-modified (GM) foods have already penetrated the food supply in England, despite widespread public rejection of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) roughly a decade ago.

Over the years, Brits have been led to believe that their diets are GMO-free. Truth be told, nearly two-thirds of the roughly 2.6 million tons of soy that is imported into the United Kingdom each and every year is GM and most people there are entirely unaware of it.

Though used primarily for animal feed, GM soy has been making its way into the British food supply for years due to the fact that manufacturers and retailers are not properly tracking the source of their soy, allowing GM soy to make its way into the human food chain. GM soybean oil, for example, is now being heavily used by catering companies in preparing food.

GM foods found in "GMO-free" products

Further disturbing is the fact that although British products that contain GM ingredients must be labeled as such, GM ingredients are being found in all kinds of products labeled "GMO-free". Many varieties of GM soy are being found in food as well, despite the government's approval of only Monsanto's RoundUp Ready soy.

GMOs of any kind have been shown to be harmful and, whenever presented to the public as a viable alternative to the "food crisis", they are uniformly rejected. Nevertheless, many officials and regulators continue to wage support for artificial food that is verifiably dangerous to human health, claiming it is going to make its way into food anyway and that there is no way to control contamination.

The goal of the Royal Society report is to garner support for a practice that is already taking place against the will of the people, an effort that is designed to indoctrinate the public into wholehearted endorsement for GMOs in the food supply in order to solve the problems of world hunger.

Officials, representatives, and groups opposed to GMOs continue to lobby against such a hypothesis, claiming that GMOs serve no legitimate purpose in alleviating world hunger. They aim to convey the powerful truth that global hunger is actually caused by the likes of GMO companies like Monsanto who continue to gain increasing power over the world's food supply.

Data reveals that roughly 82 percent of the global seed market has intellectual property rights attached to it, meaning the seeds have been patented and are owned by one of a handful of AgroScience companies. Additionally, six companies – Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta, Bayer, BASF, and Dow – control about 75 percent of the global agrochemical market.

John Fagan, chief scientist of food certification company Cert-ID, believes that government hype over a perceived inability to control GM contamination is contrived. Noting his company's status as the leading certifier of non-GMO soy imported from Brazil, he emphasizes that managing ingredient supply chains is perfectly attainable. To claim otherwise, he says, is "nonsense".

Opposition against efforts to standardize GMOs continues to mount, yet many now realize that GMOs have so severely penetrated the food chain that it may be next to impossible to identify where they are hiding.

Organic Avocados offer remarkable benefits for skin health

(www.Borganic.org) Avocados are Mother Nature's skin moisturizer. With their healthy fats and phytonutrients, they offer remarkable benefits to human skin -- both when eaten and when used topically.

Here, we present a collection of supporting information about avocados from some of the top authors and personalities in the natural health industry, including David "Avocado" Wolfe himself.

Check out the quotes below, then pick up some avocados for yourself. They just help you save your own skin!

Avocados and healthy skin

For an excellent skin complexion, rub one or more of the following items against the skin two to four times a week: papaya pulp, avocado, cucumber, spirulina, fresh noni fruit and/or aloe vera. For dry skin, rub hempseed oil, jojoba oil and MSM lotion directly into the skin. This will alleviate dryness quickly. Or use avocado on the skin directly. Avocado oil is similar to our skin's oil.
- The Sunfood Diet Success System by David Wolfe

Treat yourself to an avocado facial. Beauty, they say, is only skin deep. Luckily, avocado has moisturizing power to help make your skin more beautiful. For years, people have used avocado as a natural facial treatment, especially for dry skin. It's easy to do in your own home. Just remove your makeup and wash your face with warm water and soap or your favorite cleanser. Mash some avocado and mix it with a little milk or oatmeal and apply it to your face. Leave it there for 10 minutes, then rinse it off with lots of water.

Eating half an avocado every other day would probably help your own cholesterol drop some. A rather remarkable twofold approach towards relieving the itchy misery of psoriasis is by eating half of an avocado daily and applying an extra-rich cream of chamomile flowers extract to the skin. The oils in the avocado will work internally towards the surface of the skin, soothing deep muscle inflammation. The oils in CamoCare Soothing Cream help the skin to literally repair itself from the damage done by psoriasis.

There's more to avocado than guacamole. Its oil is actually patented as a treatment for some forms of dermatitis and arthritis. According to Aubrey Hampton, author of Natural Organic Hair and Skin Care, long-term treatment with avocado oil helps relieve eczema. I'm not surprised, as avocado oil is rich in vitamins A, D and E, all of which help maintain healthy skin. I suggest applying it directly to any itchy, red or irritated areas.

Avocado oil has been used extensively for its ability to heal and soothe the skin. This use is based on the high hydrocarbon content of the pulp and oil, which may help dry skin. Avocados are frequently included in health diets, and recent evidence suggests they are effective in modifying lipid profiles. In a randomized study, women chose either a diet high in monounsaturated fatty acids enriched with avocado or a high complex-carbohydrate diet. After 3 weeks, the avocado diet resulted in a reduction in total cholesterol level from baseline (8.2%).

Throughout Central and South America the avocado is not only consumed with great relish, but also highly regarded for its extremely nourishing properties. It is a favored saying among the Maya Indians inhabiting the Yucatan Peninsula and the highlands of Guatemala that where avocados grow, "hunger (or malnutrition) has no friends." Too many of us think only of avocados in the traditional Mexican sense of guacamole. But among the Mayan the avocado is considered to be a food which keeps the joints of the body moving freely and the skin young and supple.
- Heinerman's Encyclopedia of Healing Juices by John Heinerman

The expressed oil of the avocado seed nourishes and maintains skin tone. It softens rough, dry, or flaking skin and, massaged into the scalp, improves hair growth. Avocado is very nutritious and makes an excellent baby food. Indigenous to Central America, avocado is widely cultivated for its fruit in tropical and subtropical areas, including Israel, Spain, and South Africa. It is propagated from seed. The leaves are harvested as needed, and the unripe fruit is picked when fully grown.
- The Encyclopedia of Medicinal Plants by Andrew Chevallier

A naturally fatty fruit, avocado is also rich in vitamins, and the green pulp left attached to the peel has the highest concentration. Scrape off the pulp, and apply it directly to the skin. The abundant oils lubricate and soften the skin - the most basic step in preventing wrinkles.

Honey, avocado, eggs, fresh fruits, oats, cream of wheat and nutritional yeast are a few other possibilities for a facial mask. So are ginger, papaya, pineapple and cucumber, which have skin-softening enzymes. Yogurt, sour milk, vinegar, apples, citrus fruits and wine contain AHAs, which are particularly important for a mask because they loosen the tight bond that holds the old surface skin (they also restore the skin's natural acidity).
- Herbs for Health and Healing by Kathi Keville

Use any heavy oil for dry skin, such as avocado or wheat-germ, and a light oil such as almond or sunflower for oily skins. The essential oils of clary-sage, lemon, lime, sage, or thyme are cleansing and suitable for all skin types. Other good options would be rosemary, chamomile, lavender, or geranium.

Mashing an avocado and rubbing it into your hair for five minutes after washing will add luster to your hair; rinse afterwards. In South Africa, an avocado mask made of mashed avocados, honey, and lime juice is applied to the face as a moisturizing treatment to counteract the drying effects of the hot sun.

Every part of the avocado has been used at one time or another to tackle a few of life's inconveniences. Throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, and South America, the avocado has been put to use in unique ways. A powder made from avocado seeds has been used to control dandruff. Some people have chewed the seeds to reduce toothache pain, and even the skin has been used as an antibiotic for intestinal parasites and dysentery. The flesh has long been used to condition dry hair and as a soothing shaving cream.

Use olive, avocado, or almond oil to cleanse the skin. Pat the oil on, then wash it off with warm water and a soft cloth. Use a facial loofah occasionally with the oil and warm water to remove dead skin. Use liquid creams and lotions (not solid creams) that contain nutrients and natural ingredients to keep your skin from becoming too dry. Do not use cold creams, cleansing creams, or solid moisturizing creams. These are hardened saturated fats that become rancid rapidly and then create free radicals, which can cause premature wrinkles.

Olive, wheat germ, safflower, sesame, almond, apricot kernel, and avocado oils are closer in composition to the natural secretions of the skin. Most of them are also rich in linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that aids in skin-cell renewal. Some manufacturers have also replaced synthetic coloring and scents with herbal extracts and powdered flowers, such as rose, iris, orange blossom, lavender, and chamomile.

The avocado got its name from the ancient Aztec word for "testicle." Maybe that's why men once thought eating avocados would boost their virility. In earlier times, avocado pulp was used as a hair pomade to stimulate hair growth and to help heal wounds. Native Americans treated dysentery and diarrhea with its seeds. Even today, its oil can be found in many cosmetics.

The same vitamins make avocado good for the skin. To help reduce the itching, dryness, and inflammation, apply the mashed fruit directly to patches of eczema, or (if green's not your Avocado color) apply the oil.

Soap the entire body with a nonabrasive, emollient soap or avocado oil. Dip a large non-nylon brush, hemp washcloth, or loofah into hot water and scrub the skin for 2 to 5 minutes in circular motions until the skin is red and the body feels invigorated. End the bath with a warm shower, gradually reducing the water temperature until it becomes cool.

The mild oil pressed from the luscious avocado is known to be soothing to the skin. Avocado oil is used for gourmet cooking, so look for it in well-stocked grocery stores as well as health food stores. To magnify the moisturizing effects of the oil, use it when your hands are still a bit damp from washing, Dr. Bihova says. The oil will form a protective seal that will retain the moisture that your dry digits are so thirsty for.

To soften and nourish the skin, mash half of an avocado and apply it to your face. Leave it on until it dries, then rinse off with warm water. Avocado contains essential fatty acids and other nutrients that help prevent premature wrinkling. To tighten and refine pores, whip up the white of an egg with a pinch of alum and apply it to your face as a mask. After fifteen to twenty minutes, rinse it off with lukewarm water. Wrinkle lines from the lips toward the nose may be due to a deficiency of vitamin B2 (riboflavin).

Paul Neinast, who runs a famous beauty salon in Dallas, Texas, combines peach with papaya, banana and avocado in a blender until well purged. This facial mask is then applied and left on 30 minutes, after which it is rinsed away with tepid water. Then he will saturate several cotton balls with any polyunsaturated oil (sunflower oil is good to use) and gently rub the skin in a circular motion. This keeps dryness out, moisture in and gives the skin more elasticity. The face may also be rubbed with a little juice from some freshly pressed green grapes before the oil is applied.
- Heinerman's Encyclopedia of Fruits, Vegetables and Herbs by John Heinerman

Through our interpreter, I learned that they were using avocado oil to keep their skin from getting burned by the hot, glaring sun and the rough elements of wind and rain. They even rubbed some on their lips to keep them nice and moist. Some of the Chorti women seemed to be in their late 20s or early 30s. Imagine my utter astonishment when my interpreter told me that most of them were in their mid-to-late fifties! Now I'm a pretty good judge of age because of my training in anthropology, but their constant use of avocado oil sure fooled me about how old I thought they were.

A recipe for curing dermatitis combines avocado, aloe, and vitamin E cream. The fruit is also valued for constipation because the skin and pulp are seen to be good as cathartics. The seed is always saved because boiled in a tea it may be used as a poultice for bruises or sores. The powdered seed of avocado may be purchased at certain supermarkets in Arizona.

A Proven Food Based Cancer Cure the Medical Monopoly Considers Quackery

(www.Borganic.org) After Johanna Budwig's groundbreaking research, detailed in Part I of this Natural News Budwig series, she put the Budwig Diet to the test on 4500 cancer victims over 50 years in Germany. She had a 90% or more success rate, even with terminally ill patients. However, getting her diet out to the world was not as successful. Now that Johanna has passed on in 2003, she is not available to monitor her cancer curing protocol.

Of course, the medical establishment has made sure hardly anyone would use the Budwig Diet. Only word of mouth, and now the Internet could spread news of the Budwig diet enough for a few to take advantage of it. But there are times when Budwig's cancer cure diet is not used properly, leading to failure of curing cancer. So it is important to get the right information from good sources.

Some Good Sources

Johanna Budwig was approached by medical doctors and authorities from different areas of the world to obtain the rights for her Budwig Diet. The terms were never satisfactory. She perceived that others would exploit her regimen for big profits while she wanted her cure to be available to everyone. This is typical with virtually all medical establishment offers for inexpensive cancer cures.

Then there was Johanna's concern over the protocol's integrity. It is always legally possible to obtain exclusive rights to procedures; cut out the originating source and then shelve it so no one can use it. Or pervert the therapy so that it doesn't cure, thus rendering it easily discreditable. But in the year 2000, Johanna was visited at her home by a small group of English speaking doctors creating a Cancer Cure Center in Spain.

After negotiating an agreement with her that was satisfactory on her terms, they were granted permission to officially use her protocol. Johanna Budwig's terms were to make it affordable and available to all who needed and wanted it, and to ensure the Budwig Diet's integrity. These conditions are very similar to the conditions proposed by other humane healers with valid alternative cancer cures. In memory of her great work, the center in Spain was renamed The Budwig Center.

Although the Budwig Center does incorporate other alternative therapies that do not interfere with the Budwig protocol, including Rife Technology and Essiac Tea, the Center is very strict with the Budwig Diet guidelines. They even point out that many who say they are doing the Budwig Diet cure for cancer are misguided or only partially informed. But there is very little, if any, margin of error with this diet.

For example, a family website, Flax Oil and Cancer established by Clifford Beckwith, explains how he cured himself of fourth stage prostate cancer using the Budwig Diet. And Clifford tells the tale of how a friend was getting positive results from the Budwig Diet for his cancer, but then he got lazy and careless. Instead of using the proper flaxseed oil, he switched to flaxseed capsules. Months later, he died from his cancer. Johanna Budwig did not approve of oils or even most vitamins and minerals in pills!

Also in keeping with their pledge to Johanna Budwig, The Budwig Center has several different fee options to include different budgetary allowances. They had a recent case of a woman who had brain cancer. When the cancer was discovered, her husband abandoned her with 5 kids! Somehow she found out about the clinic in Spain. The Budwig Center provided her with the herbs needed and guided her through the dietary protocol with no charge! She has recently completely recovered from her brain cancer with the Budwig Diet!

In the States, Robyn Hanisch has a site called Surviving Cancer Naturally. She recently shunned chemotherapy for her breast cancer and used the Budwig Diet mostly on her own. She has completely recovered, and from her own experience deals not only with the Budwig Diet, but how to be brave and walk away from the AMA doctors who use fear to intimidate you into harmful, expensive treatments that often kill the cancer's host!

A Few Budwig Diet Basics

The following is an excerpt from a Budwig Center document explaining the Budwig Diet therapy for cancer:

"NO hydrogenated oils, NO trans-fats, NO olive oil (sunflower seed oil is the best choice), No animal fats, NO meats, NO chicken, NO fish, NO eggs, NO butter, NO ice cream, NO cane sugar, sugar, molasses, maple syrup, preservatives, NO processed foods (NO pastries), NO Soy milk or Soy products (unless fermented) pesticides and chemicals, even those in household products & cosmetics. NO microwave, NO Teflon or aluminum cooking ware or foil. Drink chemical-free water. Avoid leftovers - food should be prepared fresh and eaten soon after preparation to maximize intake of health-giving electrons & enzymes. Please do not add to the Budwig program any Oxygen therapies or Laetrile (Vitamin B17 injections) or Vitamin C infusions or any supplements NOT approved by the Budwig protocol." [End of excerpt from www.BudwigCenter.com]

Using a slow speed masticating juicer for juicing organic fresh vegetables is a good way to obtain minerals and enzymes for rebuilding your health with or without cancer. Coffee enemas are useful also. These procedures are taken from the Gerson Therapy for Cancer and can be safely used in conjunction with the Budwig Diet to enhance renewed health. See Natural News article "The Gerson Therapy: . . ." http://www.naturalnews.com/027004_c...

In addition, there is a list of Budwig Diet recipes that offers some tasty variety while adhering to the diet's strict regimen available at no cost from the Center in Spain. If you are interested in the Budwig Diet, do your own additional research by starting with the reference sources listed below. Winging it can be hazardous.

More evidence brews about organic green tea's benefits: it may prevent oral cancer

(www.Borganic.org) According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 35,720 new cases of oral and/or pharynx cancer will strike Americans this year. And, unfortunately, less than 50% of these people are expected to live for five years or more after diagnosis. However, scientists may have found a natural substance that can prevent these types of malignancies -- green tea.

Green tea is known to be rich in polyphenols, a type of phytonutrient shown to inhibit the development of cancer in many laboratory studies. The new research, conducted by scientists at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center and just published in the journal Cancer Prevention Research, is the first to test green tea as a cancer preventing agent in people who are at especially high risk for oral cancer because they have leukoplakia. A pre-malignant condition, oral leukoplakia is an area of whitish abnormal tissue that develops in the mouth or throat.

For the study, 41 oral leukoplakia patients at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center were divided into groups that received either an inactive placebo or a green tea extract taken orally for three months at low, medium, or high doses. In a statement to the press, the research team noted that the green tea extract was well tolerated even in the patients given the high doses and it produced no significant toxicity.

A baseline biopsy was taken when the study started and repeated as the study was underway. When the scientists checked the progression of the pre-malignant oral lesions, they found that almost 60% of patients taking the highest doses of green tea extract displayed a positive clinical response, compared with only 18.2% of those who were given the placebo. There was improved histology (the appearance of abnormal tissues when examined microscopically) and also a beneficial trend in biomarkers which are believed to be indicators of future cancer development.

"Collecting oral tissue biopsies was essential in that it allowed us to learn that not only did the green tea extract appear to have benefit for some patients, but we pointed to anti-angiogenic effects as a potential mechanism of action," Anne Tsao, M.D., assistant professor in M. D. Anderson's Department of Thoracic, Head and Neck Medical Oncology, and the study's first author, said in a statement to the media. "While preliminary because our patient population was so small, this gives us direction for further study."

The research participants were followed for 27.5 months and at the time the study concluded, 15 had developed oral cancer. Overall, there was no difference in oral cancer development between those who took green tea and those who did not. So what was the benefit of taking the green tea extract? It took far longer for cancer to develop in the high risk patients who took green tea extract, strongly suggesting that the green tea was slowing the development of malignant cells. And that clearly raises the possibility that green tea extracts started earlier or used longer might have a stronger impact and prevent oral cancer.

"While still very early, and not definitive proof that green tea is an effective preventive agent, these results certainly encourage more study for patients at highest risk for oral cancer," Vassiliki Papadimitrakopoulou, M.D., professor in M. D. Anderson's Department of Thoracic, Head and Neck Medical Oncology, and the study's senior author, said in the press statement.

As NaturalNews has previously reported, recent research has also suggested green tea may protect against blood and liver cancers (http://www.naturalnews.com/027379_g...). Scientists are finding evidence green tea could prevent prostate cancer, too (http://www.naturalnews.com/026872_P...).

Organic Wild Burdock Root Cleanses Blood, Clears Acne and Speeds Weight Loss

(www.Borganic.org) As the days get cooler and wild plants seem few and far between, Burdock (Arctium lappa) can still be found in large quantity. Burdock root is a versatile vegetable and one of the finest healing herbs known to cleanse the blood. In Healing with Whole Foods Paul Pitchford writes, "(Burdock) is a virtual cure-all for conditions of excess, and significantly purifies the blood while reducing fat and regulating blood sugar." (1)

In the fall and winter - until the ground freezes - you can harvest burdock root all over North America. Look for first year plants: the wavy green leaves will be in basal rosettes on the ground. You'll find them close to the easier-to-spot dead second year burdock plants which are brown, devoid of leaves and covered with burrs that stick to your clothes or your pet's fur. Harvest the roots from plants that are still green: you'll need a long shovel or spade because burdock sends down a long thick taproot that can be difficult to extract.

In Japan, burdock root is called gobo and is eaten as a vegetable. It can usually be found in Asian groceries or health food stores. The wild or store-bought root can be eaten cooked or raw: added to soups or sauteed with carrots and sesame seeds, or grated in salads and coleslaw. Burdock can also be juiced for a delicious and refreshing healing beverage.

Burdock root can be used medicinally as well. The root can be sliced and dried, then simmered into tea. To make a tincture, steep the fresh root in alcohol. A standard dose is about 30 drops taken twice a day.

Burdock root is considered powerful medicine in both Eastern and Western herbal traditions. In the East burdock is considered bitter and cool. It drains dampness and clears excess heat (or toxins) from the body. In the West burdock is known to cleanse the blood, and is useful in situations such as:

  • exposure to environmental toxins such as cigarette smoke or air pollution
  • parasites in the blood
  • heavy metals such as mercury, lead or arsenic in the blood
  • chronic bacterial or viral infections, such as chronic fatigue or Lyme disease

Burdock is a favorite among herbalists to treat acne. It supports the liver in cleansing the blood, and clears skin redness and blemishes.

Try this recipe for fresh cleansing burdock juice:

  • 3 inch piece of burdock root
  • 1/2 inch piece of ginger root
  • 3 small apples
  • 1 leaf of collard, kale or chard (optional, add if you want a green juice)
  • 1/4 lemon, with skin if organic

Juice the above fruits and vegetables and enjoy.

Non Organic, Genetically engineered hormones used by dairy industry promote cancer

(www.Borganic.org) An industry report claiming that the genetically-engineered hormone Recombinant Bovine Somatotropin (rBST) is safe has received criticism from the Cancer Prevention Coalition (CPC) for its dubious findings. Funded by producers of rBST, the report was conducted entirely by industry-paid consultants rather than by independent, credible scientists, indicating it is fallacious.

Dr. Samuel S. Epstein, chairman of the CPC, lambasted the report for failing to recognize the grave, scientifically-proven dangers imposed by rBST. Author of the 2006 book What's In Your Milk?, Dr. Epstein stated the report was "blatantly false".

One of the primary effects of rBST on cows is that is causes them to become seriously ill with various diseases including mastitis, an infection of the udder that ultimately contaminates milk with pus. Commonly branded as Posilac, rBST unnaturally increases milk production at the expense of the cow's health, the repercussions of which are passed on to the consumer.

Monsanto, the original creator of rBST, was forced to reveal the truth that rBST induces roughly 20 toxic effects, all of which end up tainting the milk with disease. When farmers then treat these illnesses with antibiotics, those too end up in the milk that is eventually drunk by unsuspecting consumers.

Got milk hormones?

Research has also revealed that rBST-treated milk is both chemically and nutritionally different than natural milk and that traces of the hormone end up in the milk. Those who drink rBST-tainted milk readily absorb the hormone in their digestive tract which is then assimilated into the blood.

Milk from rBST-treated cows contains unnaturally high levels of natural growth factor (IGF-1) which inhibits the body's natural defense mechanisms designed to fend off cancer. Well-documented scientific studies have implicated the hormone in precipitating prostate, breast, and colon cancer.

CPC has been working for decades to eliminate rBST from the milk supply. In 1990, the group issued a warning in conjunction with over 40 other organizations about the dangers of rBST. The warning fell upon deaf ears at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which continued to accept the flawed notion that rBST was safe in spite of its proven dangers.

In 2007, CPC sent a petition to the FDA entitled "Seeking Withdrawal of the New Animal Drug application for rBST", which was endorsed by several farmer and consumer protection groups. Citing Congressional concerns about the hormone that date back to the 1980s, as well as countless studies illustrating the toxicity of rBST, these groups labored to reform the FDA's flawed position. Unfortunately, the FDA ignored the facts and continues to keep the interests of industry as its priority at the expense of consumer protection.

Dr. Epstein's recommendation, especially for children who are most susceptible to cancer-causing additives like rBST, is to choose organic milk if they are going to drink milk at all. Organic milk is not allowed to contain rBST or any artificial hormones and is the best alternative to conventional milk that may be tainted with rBST.

Organic, raw milk is the most preferable option as it is a whole, living food rich in beneficial enzymes, probiotics, and other nutrients that get destroyed during pasteurization and homogenization. Many believe raw milk is a perfect food rich in essential vitamins and high in protein.

Whole Foods to Use "Non-GMO" Seal on Its Private-Label Products

(www.Borganic.org) Whole Foods Market has announced plans to have all of its store-brand products independently tested to certify that they are made without the use of any genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

"Since there is no U.S. regulation regarding disclosure on products manufactured with GMO ingredients, we are committed to helping our shoppers make confident choices by knowing that what they are buying has been verified as meeting the standards of the Non-GMO Project," said Senior Global Vice President of Purchasing Michael Besancon.

Ensuring a food supply free of GMO ingredients can be difficult for manufacturers, since GM and unmodified crops are often mixed together prior to distribution. In addition, the prevalence of genetic modification in some crops – 90 percent of U.S.-grown soy is genetically modified – can make finding traditional varieties difficult.

Whole Foods is the largest retailer to ever take part in the Non-GMO Project's Product Verification Program in order to prove its GMO-free claims. Other companies whose products already carry a Non-GMO seal include Lundberg Family Farms, San J, SK Foods and Whole Soy & Co.

The Product Verification Program provides a GMO-free seal to any products that have tested free of GMO contamination in a combination of document-based reviews, on-site inspections and genetic tests.

Whole Foods called on other segments of the food industry to join it in seeking Non-GMO verification. It is holding a Web seminar on August 26 to educate the food industry about the Non-GMO Project and its Product Verification Program.

"As you can imagine, the level of diligence involved will require an enormous amount of effort at every step in the manufacturing process," said Non-GMO Project board member and Whole Foods Quality Standards Coordinator Joe Dickson. "The more participation we have in the program, the more rapidly the industry will realize efficiencies. Economies of scale will ultimately have a real and lasting impact on the available supply of non-GMO ingredients."

Whole Foods' in-house brands should carry the GMO-free seal by October.

The European BioWar outbreak

(www.Borganic.org)

A Tale of Two Stories: The European BioWar outbreak and the censoring of it by the mainstream news media.


by Dr Rebecca Carley


The biggest story on the Planet today is the outbreak of a very
serious Advanced Biological War virus in Europe.

The second biggest
story on the Planet is the suppression of this story for almost two weeks by the corporate owned mainstream news media.

There is a lot we know and a lot that we can only speculate on about what is unfolding in Central Europe. We know that in mid-October, less than a month ago, there was a growing number of cases of what many thought was Swine Flu (A/H1N1) in the western part of the Ukraine. We know that many hundreds if not thousands of people in western Ukraine witnessed low flying light airplanes aerosol spraying something over

Ukrainian cities during the days of October 29, 2009 and October 31, 2009.

We know that beginning the night of October 29th, massive

numbers of people begin to get very sick. We know that the Ukraine

government issued a statement denying that it was doing any aerial

spraying to combat the growing disease or authorizing any spraying

over Ukrainian cities. We know that by October 30th, the Ukrainian

authorities closed all schools for three weeks and banded public

gatherings.

We do NOT know what disease the people were/are coming down with. We

do know that doctors are describing the disease as Pneumonic Plague,

or as some type of hemorrhagic fever, or as hemorrhagic influenza, or

as hemorrhagic pneumonia. We know that the illness, whatever it is,

does not appear to be A/H1N1. We do not know if the disease is a

recombination of A/H1N1 with other viruses or some totally different

virus or if it is in fact a virus. We know that the World Health

Organization (WHO) has had several days to sequence the genes of the

disease but has failed to release this data.

We know that WHO has NOT called for the quarantining of the Ukraine

or the shutdown of all global travel to/from the area of infection and

that this is the same thing that they did when Mexican Swine Flu

(A/H1N1) first broke out and that the failure to contain that virus

early on ensured its spread throughout the world.

We know that the internal temperature of the lungs of those with a

terminal case of what many are calling 'Ukrainian Plague' is often

from 130F to 135F. We do know that autopsies show that the lungs are

filled with blood, and are black in color, and that the lung tissue

has turned to mush. We know that patients who first show any signs of

illness usually crash in less than 48 hours, sometimes the same day.

We know that the disease was spreading by about 200,000 per day but

that this has slowed to about 100,000 day now, in the Ukraine, as

people take extraordinary steps to contain the spread of the disease.

We know that well over one and a third million people in the Ukraine

are very ill with the disease (according to published official

sources) and that over 60,000 are hospitalized in serious to critical

condition. We know that the disease has a very high transmission rate

with a likely low amount of viral (if it is in fact a virus) material

needed to cause an infection. We know that the official reports of

deaths are under 300 in the Ukraine. We also know that it is normal

for hospital admissions of people with ARI (acute respiratory

infection) to have a fatality rate of from 5% to 10%. We know that

non-official sources were reporting over 3,000 deaths several days ago

and that this number is more in tune with the 5-10% fatality rate than

the official figures.

We do not know what effective treatments are for this illness. We do

know that young adults seem to be more in danger of this illness. We

suspect that 'cytokine storming' similar to that in the 1918 Spanish

Flu, that killed approximately 50 million people, is taking place.

We know from official Ukrainian Health Ministry reports that the

illness does not test out as Mexican Swine Flu (A/H1N1). We do not

know if the existing Swine Flu vaccine has any effect, but based on

the non-positive response to Swine Flu in testing, we suspect that the

vaccine is ineffective as the viral protean shell is different than

A/H1N1 (if in fact it is a virus that causes the illness).

We know that the illness has spread to Poland, where over one quarter

of a million people are now very ill. We know that it has spread to

Belarus and to Hungary and elsewhere in central Europe. We know that

900,000 people are said to have Swine Flu in Norway but we do not know

if this is related to Ukraine Plague in any way.

We know that on November 8th a South African site (fto.co.za

) carried the following:

/"Suspicious aircraft were forced to land. A US operated

(Russian-made long-range heavy transport) AN-124 changed its call sign

from civilian to military which then triggered a response from the IAF

(Indian Air Force) upon entering Pakistani air space (forcing) the

plane to land in Mumbai while (a) second one was forced down by

Nigerian fighter jets that also arrested the crew."

"According to reports, China's People's Liberation Army Air Force

contacted the Indian and Nigerian intelligence officials about the

presence of these US operated Ukrainian aircraft amidst growing

concern that the United States was spreading 'biological agents' in

the Earth's atmosphere, which some Chinese officials believed to be an

attempt to (commit) mass genocide via the spread of H1N1 swine flu."

These aircraft "were carrying 'waste disposal' systems that could

spray up to 45,000kg (nearly 100,000 pounds) of aerial type mist from

sophisticated....nano pipes" in the planes' wings - called

chemtrails./

We know that Baxter International Pharmaceuticals sent 72 kilos of

human influenza H3N2 vaccine materials to 16 labs in European nations

which contained live H5N1 Bird Flu viruses. We know that this was only

discovered when a Czech lab tested the material on several ferrets

(ferrets have a similar respiratory system to humans) and all of the

ferrets died in short order. We know that Baxter claimed that this was

human error. We also know that such a 'human error' is basically

impossible with the containment protocols in place at Baxter and any

other modern biolabs using Biosafety Level 3 (BLS-3) lab technology.

We know that in mid-August a Joseph Moshe, who is a Mossad biological

warfare expert, called in to Dr. A. True Ott's national radio talk

show and reported that Baxter was getting ready to release a deadly

plague from its Ukrainian lab and that he was shortly meeting with US

Attorneys in Los Angles to give evidence about this. We know that

shortly thereafter Moshe was apprehended by Federal agents and LA

police and taken to the Israeli Consulate. We know that he was quickly

flown to Israel and that no further word has come from him.

We know that over the last three or so years a large number of

biological experts, from a number of places all over the world, have

died strange deaths and that this has been commented on by various

publications in the past.

We know that the sudden appearance of Mexican Swine Flu (A/H1N1)

virtually had to have been a release from a biological warfare lab. We

know that A/H1N1 has gene sequences from three different types

(American, Asian, and African) of Swine Flu, of Bird Flu, of two

different types of human seasonal flu, and of Spanish Flu and that

such a recombination is so unlikely in nature as to be virtually

impossible. We know that the WHO policies of not requiring a major

quarantine of Mexico ensured that A/H1N1 would spread throughout the

world.

We know that the current Swine Flu "Vaccine" is almost totally

untested, and that the manufactures are protected from lawsuits for

even deliberate acts that result in deaths and that nations acquiring

the vaccines are required to sign contracts agreeing not to release

negative information on the "vaccine" to the public. We know that

published additives to the "vaccine" include highly

dangerous-to-human-health substances.

We know that the corporate owned mainstream news media (with strong

links to global banking families) have censored this story in a way

that has never happen before. We know that the outbreak of a unknown

but deadly and very rapidly spreading disease in Europe is the largest

story on Earth but that it is NOT being reported on.

Doctors learned why Ukrainians dying! (updated at 06:25 pm)

MIGnews.com.ua

All victims of the virus in Bukovyna (22 people at the age of 20-40)

died not from bilateral pneumonia, as was previously thought, but as a

result of viral distress syndrome, i.e the total destruction of the

lungs.

At first the cardio-pulmonary insufficiency comes, and consequently

cardiogenic shock is developed, which causes cardiac standstill and

death, told the chief of bureau of the Chernivtsi regional forensic

examination, doctor of science, Professor Viktor Bachynsky, UNIAN

reports.

"During a bilateral pneumonia some morphological picture is observed.

As of data of deaths, there is no such morphological picture. The

virus, which causes death, is very aggressive, it does not strike the

trachea, but immediately gets into the lungs and causes heavy swelling

and solid hemorrhage. Mixed types of parainfluenza and influenza

A/N1N1 lead to this state. This is a very toxic strain, which has not

yet answered to the treatment of the Ministry of Health", - said

Viktor Bachinsky.

According to him, there is a need to change the treatment standards,

because those which were used earlier, resulted in nothing – doctors

failed to save all people infected with the virus in the reanimation.

The belt ventilators did not help also.

For this reason a group of professors of Chernivtsi Medical

University appealed to the Ministry of Health and National Security

and Defense Council with a demand to review the standards of treatment

of patients in Bukovyna. Scientists-morphologists sent to Kyiv

reports, studies and analysis of critically ill patients and people

who died of virus.

Viktor Bachinsky noted that the virus is extremely toxic, it is able

to penetrate not only through respiratory apparatus but also through

the eyes. Chernovtsy scientists recommend in any case use masks and

even wear protective spectacles. An important condition to prevent

deterioration of the situation is also the observance of quarantine

regime.

06:19 p.m. Ministry of Health does not consider it is necessary to

publish data on the number of confirmed cases of influenza pandemic in

the laboratory. "Ukraine is in the A/N1N1 influenza pandemic, and now

it does not matter how many of these cases will be detected, we should

treat everybody equally," - said Deputy Minister of Health Vasyl

Lazoryshynets at a briefing on Friday.

Vasyl Lazoryshynets also reminded that in Ukraine since the beginning

of the epidemic 1,25 mn people became ill with pandemic influenza,

influenza and acute respiratory diseases, including 61,000 people -

over the past day, which is by 8,500 less than the previous day.

65,615 people are treated in hospital, including 392 - in the

reanimation, 60 have artificial pulmonary ventilation.

Since the beginning of the epidemic in Ukraine 239 people died,

including 26 people during the last day, most of them are in the

Ivano-Frankivsk, Chernivtsi, Lviv and Ternopil Regions. He also said

that according to the laboratory data, 14 people died of pandemic

influenza, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

06:25 p.m. To date, swine flu in Ukraine is dominant, but not the

only strain, said the head of mission of the World Health Organization

in Ukraine Yukka Pukkila.

Yukka Pukkila said that the strain of pandemic virus is detected in

22 cases of 34 samples sent to the control laboratory, which

collaborates with WHO in London.

At the same time, Yukka Pukkila stressed that, besides Californian

flu in Ukraine there is a large number of varieties of acute

respiratory viral diseases and many other viruses that infect the

respiratory system, reports Liga.

The genocide is now on being fast tracked, as promised by the

murderous cabal controlling the world:

Thank to listeners Verne & Kenneth for this important info...

Also if you missed my show yesterday with Elizabeth Wallace,

grandmother of Christian (who was murdered by his pediatrician with 6

vacs when he was already sick), you can hear the archive, for free and

without commercials, at

http://thelightofdayradioshow.com/archives/RBN-BACKUP/commercialFree.html

(scroll down to 11/14/09 show). VERY IMPORTANT...especially for anyone

you know who still beLIEves that vaccines promote health.

Thank you to Sheldon for these archives...

Lastly, after many people have asked me why I did not have a paypal

button on my site for people to make donations, I have put one up (to

left of the "baby with a needles" picture), in case any of you want to

support my work.

Remember, folks, WE can stop the genocide...do not be afraid! We are

reaching critical mass, if we have not already done so...
