Arthritis drugs – triple cancer risk
Dear Health-Savvy Friend,
A study of more than 125,000 regular users of anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), published recently in the prestigious Archives of Internal Medicine, has shown that taking these drugs could increase the risk of kidney cancer by 36%.
The US researchers at the Harvard Medical School found that patients who took anti-inflammatory drugs – used to treat conditions such as arthritis – for between four and 10 years had an increased risk of developing kidney cancer.
But for people taking these drugs for 10 years or more, the risk triples.
Prolonged use of these non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can also cause stomach irritation, high blood pressure, diarrhoea, peptic ulcers, kidney failure and liver damage.
They’ve been linked to 80% of cases of gastrointestinal ulcerations and bleeding – 10% of which are fatal.
Prevention magazine reported that complications from over the counter pain relievers kill 16,500 people each year – an average of 45 needless deaths every day in the US alone.
If you’re one of the estimated 10 million people currently taking large dosages of NSAIDs every day, keep this in mind also: NSAIDs don’t “fix” anything!
Your painkillers may alleviate symptoms, but they don’t help your joints. You could get caught up in a cycle where first you suffer the symptoms. Then you suffer the side-effects.
When your joints get worse, you’re back where you started – only now with more aches, more pills, more side-effects, more risks.
If you are taking anti-inflammatory drugs to ease the debilitating pain of arthritis, now there is a solution to your quandary…
It’s no longer a choice between stopping the drugs and suffering excruciating pain – or keep taking them and risking damaging your health in other ways?
Now, there is an effective and safer alternative that can finally free you from your pain.
In fact, with Ultimate JointFlex, you can soothe your joints, rebuild cartilage and halt the deterioration in your joints – safely, naturally and without dangerous side-effects!

Black Seed: the Remedy for Everything But Death
By Sayer Ji
Contributing Writer for Wake Up World
This humble but immensely powerful seed kills MRSA, heals the chemical weapon poisoned body, stimulates regeneration of the dying beta cells within the diabetic’s pancreas, and yet too few even know it exists.
The seeds of the annual flowering plant, Nigella Sativa, have been prized for their healing properties since time immemorial. While frequently referred to among English-speaking cultures as Roman coriander, black sesame, black cumin, black caraway and onion seed, it is known today primarily as black seed, which is at the very least an accurate description of its physical appearance.
The earliest record of its cultivation and use come from ancient Egypt. Black seed oil, in fact, was found in Egyptian pharoah Tutankhamun’s tomb, dating back to approximately 3,300 years ago.[i] In Arabic cultures, black cumin is so known as Habbatul barakah, meaning the “seed of blessing.” It is also believed that the Islamic prophet Mohammed said of it that it is “a remedy for all diseases except death.”
Many of black cumin’s traditionally ascribed health benefits have been thoroughly confirmed in the biomedical literature. In fact, since 1964, there have been 458 published, peer-reviewed studies referencing it.
We have indexed salient research, available to view on GreenMedInfo.com on our Black Seed(Nigella Sativa) page, on well over 40 health conditions that may be benefited from the use of the herb, including over 20 distinct pharmacological actions it expresses, such as:
- Analgesic (Pain-Killing)
- Gluconeogenesis Inhibitor (Anti-Diabetic)
- Hepatoprotective (Liver Protecting)
- Insulin Sensitizing
- Interferon Inducer
- Leukotriene Antagonist
- Renoprotective (Kidney Protecting)
- Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha Inhibitor
These 22 pharmacological actions are only a subset of a far wider number of beneficial properties intrinsic to the black seed. While it is remarkable that this seed has the ability to positively modulate so many different biological pathways, this is actually a rather common occurrence among traditional plant medicines.
Our project has identified over 1600 natural compounds with a wide range of health benefits, and we are only in our first 5 years of casual indexing. There are tens of thousands of other substances that have already been researched, with hundreds of thousands of studies supporting their medicinal value (MEDLINE, whence our study abstracts come, has over 600,000 studies classified as related to Complementary and Alternative Medicine).
Take turmeric, for example. We have identified research indicating its value in over 600 health conditions, while also expressing over 160 different potentially beneficial pharmacological actions. You can view the quick summary of over 1500 studies we have summarized on our Turmeric Researchpage, which includes an explorative video on turmeric. Professional database members are further empowered to manipulate the results according to their search criteria, i.e. pull up and print to PDF the 61 studies on turmeric and breast cancer. This, of course, should help folks realize how voluminous the supportive literature indicating the medicinal value of natural substances, such as turmeric and black seed, really is.
Black seed has been researched for very specific health conditions. Some of the most compelling applications include:
- Type 2 Diabetes: Two grams of black seed a day resulted in reduced fasting glucose, decreased insulin resistance, increased beta-cell function, and reduced glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in human subjects.[ii]
- Helicobacter Pylori Infection: Black seeds possess clinically useful anti-H. pylori activity, comparable to triple eradication therapy.[iii]
- Epilepsy: Black seeds were traditionally known to have anticonvulsive properties. A 2007 study with epileptic children, whose condition was refractory to conventional drug treatment, found that a water extract significantly reduced seizure activity.[iv]
- High Blood pressure: The daily use of 100 and 200 mg of black seed extract, twice daily, for 2 months, was found to have a blood pressure-lowering effect in patients with mild hypertension.[v]
- Asthma: Thymoquinone, one of the main active constituents within Nigella sativa (black cumin), is superior to the drug fluticasone in an animal model of asthma.[vi] Another study, this time in human subjects, found that boiled water extracts of black seed have relatively potent antiasthmatic effect on asthmatic airways.[vii]
- Acute tonsillopharyngitis: characterized by tonsil or pharyngeal inflammation (i.e. sore throat), mostly viral in origin, black seed capsules (in combination with Phyllanthus niruri) have been found to significantly alleviate throat pain, and reduce the need for pain-killers, in human subjects.[viii]
- Chemical Weapons Injury: A randomized, placebo-controlled human study of chemical weapons injured patients found that boiled water extracts of black seed reduced respiratory symptoms, chest wheezing, and pulmonary function test values, as well as reduced the need for drug treatment.[ix]
- Colon Cancer: Cell studies have found that black seed extract compares favorably to the chemoagent 5-fluoruracil in the suppression of colon cancer growth, but with a far higher safety profile.[x] Animal research has found that black seed oil has significant inhibitory effects against colon cancer in rats, without observable side effects.[xi]
- MRSA: Black seed has anti-bacterial activity against clinical isolates of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus.[xii]
- Opiate Addiction/Withdrawal: A study on 35 opiate addicts found black seed as an effective therapy in long-term treatment of opioid dependence.[xiii]
Sometimes the biblical reference to ‘faith the size of a mustard seed moving mountains’ comes to mind in connection with natural substances like black seeds. After all, do seeds not contain within them the very hope for continuance of the entire species that bore it? This super-saturated state of the seed, where life condenses itself down into an intensely miniaturized holographic fragment of itself, promising the formation of future worlds within itself, is the very emblem of life’s immense and immortal power.
If we understand the true nature of the seed, how much life (past, present and future) is contained within it, it will not seem so far-fetched that it is capable of conquering antibiotic resistant bacteria, healing the body from chemical weapons poisoning, or stimulate the regeneration of dying insulin-producing beta cells in the diabetic, to name but only a fraction of black seed’s experimentally-confirmed powers.
Moving the mountain of inertia and falsity associated with the conventional concept of disease, is a task well-suited for seeds and not chemicals. The greatest difference, of course, between a seed and a patented synthetic chemical (i.e. pharmaceutical drug), is that Nature (God) made the former, and men with profit-motives and a deranged understanding of the nature of the body made the latter.
The time, no doubt, has come for food, seeds, herbs, plants, sunlight, air, clean water, and yes, love, to assume once again their central place in medicine, which is to say, the art and science of facilitating self-healing within the human body. Failing this, the conventional medical system will crumble under the growing weight of its own corruption, ineptitude, and iatrogenic suffering (and subsequent financial liability) it causes. To the degree that it reforms itself, utilizing non-patented and non-patentable natural compounds with actual healing properties, a brighter future awaits on the horizon. To the degree that it fails, folks will learn to take back control over their health themselves, which is why black seed, and other food-medicines, hold the key to self-empowerment.

Chamomile is no ordinary daisy..
Chamomile has been used as a traditional medicine for thousands of years. Chamomile is part of the Asteraceae plant family, which also ragweed and chrysanthemum belong.
There are two plants known as chamomile: German chamomile is an annual, and it grows in a bushy shrub up to 3 feet tall. Roman chamomile is a perennial that only gets about a foot high and tends to grow along the ground. Both will produce very similar aromatic blossoms, it is German chamomile that is the more commonly grown for its blossoms. Grow in an area that receives full sun, consider growing this herb in a container either indoors or on a patio.
Chamomile is known as the “plant doctor,” chamomile has been known to revive and revitalize plants growing near it.
Give your plants a boost with chamomile tea. Soak a cupful or fresh or dried blossoms in cold water for a day or two, strain and spray it on any plant that looks weak or sickly for a pick-me-up. Add leftover tea on the compost pile as it is well known to jump-start compost.
Plant it throughout the garden, it attracts Hoverflies and predatory wasps that feed off of the larvae of harmful garden pests. Chamomile is especially useful in combating pests such as squash bugs and cabbage moths as the wasps it attracts will kill the pests’ larvae. Plant chamomile as a companion helping to bring potassium, sulfur, and calcium to the surface of the soil.
Chamomile has been widely used by children and adults for thousands of years for a variety of health conditions. Today, chamomile is used as a remedy for sleeplessness, anxiety, excema, gingivitis, colic, upset stomach, gas and diarrhea and more. The flowering tops of the chamomile plant are used to make teas, liquid extracts, capsules, or tablets. Chamomile can also be applied to the skin as a cream or an ointment, or used as a mouth rinse. T he active ingredient in chamomile essential oil is known as bisabolol, which has a number of anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties. Potential side effects of chamomile include drowsiness and allergic reactions from those that suffer allergies from other plants in the daisy family. Not recommended for pregnant woman.
(Please consult a medical professional and or, do your own research prior to use)
Reducing Dark Circles Around Eyes
Chamomile tea has been known to help relieve eye fatigue and dark circles. A simple remedy is to steep 2 chamomile tea bags in hot water, when cooled to room temperature remove the tea bags from the water and place them on your eyes at night as a compress.

Modern-medicine loses the flu-fight to Mother Nature…
Discover why the natural approach to colds and flu prevention is more effective than modern-medicine…
Dear flu-season dreader,
Winter is here and that means the dreaded flu season is too!
Having to live with a sore throat, annoying cough and never-ending runny nose that cause you to make expensive trip after expensive trip to the doctor is exhausting…
So the obvious thing to do is round up your family and go for an annual flu shot, right?
But is that the most effective way to protect you and your family from colds and flu?
Does it really do what doctors claim?
Studies show the flu shot is practically useless
A 2011 study published in the Lancet Journal conducted by the University of Minnesota has revealed that 1.5 of every 100 adults who get the flu shot will avoid getting the flu. That means 98.5 get sick even though they’ve had the vaccine. Proof that the flu shot isn’t nearly as effective as doctors claim it is in preventing colds and flu. In fact, it’s just about useless!
But that’s not all…
In 2009, the Cochrane Collaboration (an independent research organisation) reviewed every flu vaccine study conducted between 1948 and 2007. Their conclusion: “There is no evidence whatsoever that seasonal influenza vaccines have any effect, especially in the elderly and young children”.
And this year, the US Centre for Disease Control found that for people over the age of 65 – the population most at risk of developing serious health complications from flu – the 2013 vaccine failed at preventing illness nine out of ten times…
Flu shots aren’t only useless, they’re dangerous too
But that’s not even the worst of it…
You see, flu shots may contain harmful poisons like these:
1. Thimerosal (a mercury derivative added as a preservative) – mercury is a toxic heavy metal that can lead to severe speech and vision impairment.
2. Formaldehyde (to kill viruses) – a carcinogen that can cause serious respiratory problems such as bronchitis, pneumonia or pulmonary oedema.
3. Aluminum (to promote antibody response) – which is suspected of causing Alzheimer’s amongst other illnesses.
4. Ethylene glycol (also known as antifreeze) – known to cause kidney and liver damage without showing symptoms.
But the flu shot isn’t the only cold and flu modern-medicine that doesn’t do what it’s meant to…
Recent press reports have reported on the dangers of cough syrup for children and have concluded that cough syrup doesn’t work either…
According to reports, no cough remedies have ever been proven to be better than a placebo for adults or children.
Antibiotics are a “wonder drug” in the medical world – no one is disputing that. But, while your doctor will no doubt prescribe them to you for a viral cold or flu in case you develop a bacterial infection… This overuse of antibiotics has resulted in much more resistant bacteria.
According to Dr Richard Rosenfeld of State University of New York Downstate Medical Centre: “The bacteria that do survive the antibiotics get tough and harder to manage”. That means antibiotics will only be able to do so much before they can’t effectively fight bacterial infections anymore…
And if that’s not enough, side effects like nausea, allergic reactions and severe abdominal cramps seem like a big price to pay for a failed attempt at fighting off a viral infection!
Why take harmful flu shots and ineffective modern-medicine when there are all-safe, all-natural ways to protect you and your family from colds and flu this winter?
Why rely on modern-medicine when Mother Nature’s much more effective
The natural approach to protecting you and your family from colds and flu has been overshadowed by the pharmaceutical industry for far too long!
After all, with modern medicine come unwanted side effects that could result in long-term health complications.
The stats don’t lie! Just because you get a flu shot, doesn’t mean you won’t end up getting sick or have to resort to paying a visit to your doctor…
If you’re serious about flu protection, take the more natural approach.
For example, studies show that one vitamin is crucial in preventing colds and flu and can cut your risk of coming down with the flu by 50%!
But, this vitamin isn’t the only natural source of protection you can use to fight colds and flu…
• Three vegetables that can also help to reinforce your body’s natural defences…
• Spices and herbs sitting in your kitchen cupboard that can protect you from germs…
• As well as an aphrodisiac that can boost your immune system…
• And much more…
And while prevention is better than cure, if you do happen to still get sick… Luckily, Mother Nature’s covered that angle too…
Fight colds and flu the natural way…
Did you know: You can…
• Shorten your flu attack by four days with one fruit extract…
• Ease nasal congestion with two commonly found herbs…
• Kill a wide range of viruses without causing any side-effects with one plant leaf…
• Get much-needed relief from annoying coughs and chest pains with this one flower…
• And much more…
So while doctors and mainstream media push you to get your yearly flu shots year after year, the truth is a man-made lab vaccine can’t protect you from colds and flu as effectively as Mother Nature can…
And that’s why today, I want you to discover all-natural cold and flu prevention secrets as well as natural flu-fighting remedies you can use to protect your family from the flu season this winter.

27 Medicinal Plants Worth Your Garden Space
Playful as kids are, accidents happen. And the accident that befallen me at 7 years old was the feeling of the hot exhaust pipe of a motorcycle kissing the skin of my leg. Grandma was around and saw it. Immediately, she took out a knife and slice the thick lower part of the aloe vera plant by the garden and rubbed the exposed end on the burn.
Looking back, I realized that it was important to havemedicinal plants around the house cause you never know when you might need them. So here is a list of plants that have the highest medicinal value compared to the other million species around the world worth planting around the house.
1. Aloe Vera
The aloe vera grows only under the sun with well drained dry or moist soil. Although the plant tastes like turd, it’s still edible. The sap from aloe vera is extremely useful to speed up the healing and reducing the risk of infections for :

Nine of nature’s most powerful traditional
by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) Herbal medicine has been around for centuries, and it just so happens to have a much more comprehensive track record of success than conventional medicine, which more often than not comes with nasty side effects. And while it may not serve the interests of the pharmaceutical cartel, modern science continues to uncover the vast health benefits associated with natural herbs and plants, many of which are freely available at grocery and health food stores, as well as farmers markets and local farm stands, depending on where you live.
Here are nine of nature’s most powerful multi-use remedies that have played a prominent role in traditional medicine:
1) Aloe vera. At the top of the herbal healing hierarchy is aloe vera, an impressive and highly-versatile plant that provides a vast array of healing benefits both internally and externally. Besides aiding in the healing of sunburns and skin inflammation, aloe vera is widely acclaimed for its unique ability to cleanse and oxygenate the blood, lower cholesterol, alkalize the body, heal intestinal and digestive disorders, and even reverse the growth and spread of cancer, among other benefits. (http://www.naturalnews.com/021858_aloe_vera_gel.html)
2) Garlic. A powerful immune-booster, garlic contains more than 70 active healing phytonutrients, including allicin, earning it a top spot on the hierarchy as well. Similarly effective both internally and externally, garlic contains potent antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties that make it a go-to remedy for preventing illness and infection. Garlic is also recognized for its ability to lower blood pressure and treat cancer.
3) Turmeric. Sometimes referred to as the king of all herbs, turmeric is an amazing anti-inflammatory spice with a laundry list of health benefits that is continually expanding. A powerful pain-relieving spice, turmeric actually works better and much more safely than COX-2 inhibitor drugs at treating arthritis and other conditions resulting from chronic inflammation. Turmeric has also been shown to help prevent cancer, as well as treat and prevent the formation of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. (http://www.naturalnews.com/turmeric.html)
4) Marijuana (cannabis). Non-psychoactive, raw marijuana leaf just so happens to be one of the most medicinal plants in the entire world. Unique due to its rich and diverse composition of cannabinoid compounds, marijuana has the capacity to not only prevent but also reverse all sorts of health conditions ranging from neurological disease and chronic pain to autoimmune disorders and cancer. The time is quickly approaching when the negative stigma associated with marijuana use finally dissipates and humanity awakens to the amazing healing capacities of this all-natural herb. (http://www.naturalnews.com/035759_cannabis_juicing_health.html)
5) Comfrey. For good reason was it once dubbed the “miracle herb,” that is before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) erroneously banned it from being sold for internal use. But comfrey truly is a wonder herb capable of promoting cell healing and regeneration, encouraging bone growth, and curing digestive disorders. Rich in a cell-proliferant compound known as allantoin, comfrey is an all-around healer that can be applied to wounds, drunk in tea, or taken as a dietary supplement for vibrant health. (http://herbsarespecial.com.au/free-herb-information/comfrey.html)
6) Echinacea. A popular herbal remedy for colds and influenza, echinacea is widely recognized for its ability to stimulate the immune system. The herb’s high concentrations of polysaccharides, flavonoids, essential oils, caffeic acid derivatives, isobutylamides, and cichoric acid are all believed to play a role in echinacea’s ability to boost white blood cell production and activate macrophages, which are responsible for tracking down viruses, bacteria, and other foreign invaders and destroying them. (http://www.motherearthliving.com)
7) Cinnamon. India’s traditional system of medicine, Ayurveda, as well as traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) have both long utilized cinnamon for heating the body, boosting energy levels, and warding off disease. In more recent years, cinnamon has been shown to stabilize blood sugar levels, reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass, and ward off viral, bacterial, and even fungal invaders such as Candida. Cinnamon is also useful in treating diabetes, boosting cognitive function, and preventing cancer. (http://www.organicauthority.com)
8) Rosemary. A delicious food herb, rosemary possesses unique medicinal and antioxidant benefits such as its ability to mitigate the carcinogenic properties of certain cooked foods. Rosemary has also been shown to help stop the proliferation of cancer tumors, as well as boost memory and promote healthy hair and skin. If your adrenal gland is overworked, rosemary can help stimulate its proper function, and studies have shown that rosemary can also help stimulate nerve growth. (http://www.naturalnews.com/029359_rosemary_stress.html)
9) Ginger. If you have ever been sea sick or suffered from nausea or stomach upset, ginger may have been recommended to you as a remedy. And science shows that it actually works by blocking the nausea-inducing effects of serotonin production, as well as preventing the production of damaging free radicals. Ginger can also help lower blood pressure, mitigate arthritis pain, promote prostate health, and even reduce the risk of cancer.

The six healthiest foods you’re
possibly not eating
by Sandeep Godiyal
(NaturalNews) Face it – most people aren’t really eating the things they should, engorging themselves on food types that should be avoided at all costs. Considering the wide array of processed foods today, it is kind of hard to avoid eating any of these. For those who are currently planning to live a healthier lifestyle, following are six of the healthiest food types you’re probably not eating but should:
Guava is one of the healthiest fruits today that can be found in most stores. This particular fruit has a high concentration of vitamins and minerals that help boost the immune system against common types of colds. Not only that, the guava actually contains more potassium than the banana, specifically 63 percent more. It also contains the antioxidant lycopene which helps flush out toxins from the body. When eaten on a routine basis, guava is believed to help in preventing prostate cancer.
It’s true that fresh blueberries provide the best vitamins and minerals, but getting them is really impractical. Instead, you can simply purchase frozen blueberries that are luckily available for the whole year. They can be served as a shake or yogurt, providing you with a healthy dose of antioxidants, and they are very high in dietary fiber too,w hich may prevent weight gain by providing calories that are not absorbed and displacing high-calorie refined foods.
Lots of people seem to forget cabbage in favor of other green and leafy vegetables such as lettuce. What most people don’t realize is that this vegetable is jam packed with nutrients that can fight cancer.
Another cancer-fighting vegetable is beets which look unappealing at first. This not so desirable food is laced with folic acid which provides excellent help to pregnant women. The color of the beets which most people do not like is actually the main attraction of the vegetable as the pigments are believed to help prevent the onset of cancer.
Although they may seem like processed food, sardines actually come with various minerals that make them ideal for a weekly diet. Sardines are loaded withomega-3 fatty acids known for their positive effects with cholesterol levels and weight loss. There’s also a bunch of potassium, magnesium, zinc and B vitamins that can help boost a person’s immune system.
Another product that most people steer clear of is pumpkin. Probably the only time it becomes popular is during the Halloween but after that, individuals rarely devise recipes with pumpkin in the ingredient. What is important to know is that pumpkin actually contains lots of fiber for digestion. It also has very few calories, ideal for weight watchers. Although fresh pumpkin is usually the best source, the canned ones are every bit as good and shouldn’t discourage anyone.
Of course, those aren’t the only healthy food items that may be lacking in your diet. Keep in mind that the hallmark of a healthy individual is balance. As long as a person eats a balanced meal combined with daily exercises, there’s a good chance that he will enjoy a long and happy life.

The Vaccine Hoax is Over.
Documents from UK reveal
30 Years of Coverup
1. Known the vaccines don’t work
2. Known they cause the diseases they are supposed to prevent
3. Known they are a hazard to children
4. Colluded to lie to the public
5. Worked to prevent safety studies
Those are the same vaccines that are mandated to children in the US.
Educated parents can either get their children out of harm’s way or continue living inside one of the largest most evil lies in history, that vaccines – full of heavy metals, viral diseases, mycoplasma, fecal material, DNA fragments from other species, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80 (a sterilizing agent) – are a miracle of modern medicine.
Freedom of Information Act filed in the US with the CDC by a doctor with an autistic son, seeking information on what the CDC knows about the dangers of vaccines, had by law to be responded to in 20 days. Nearly 7 years later, the doctor went to court and the CDC argued it does not have to turn over documents. A judge ordered the CDC to turn over the documents on September 30th, 2011.
On October 26, 2011, a Denver Post editorial expressed shock that the Obama administration, after promising to be especially transparent, was proposing changes to the Freedom of Information Act that would allow it to go beyond declaring some documents secret and to actually allow government agencies (such as the CDC) to declare some document “non-existent.”
Simultaneous to this on-going massive CDC cover up involving its primary “health” not recommendation but MANDATE for American children, the CDC is in deep trouble over its decades of covering up the damaging effects of fluoride and affecting the lives of all Americans, especially children and the immune compromised. Lawsuits are being prepared. Children are ingesting 3-4 times more fluoride by body weight as adults and “[t]he sheer number of potentially harmed citizens — persons with dental fluorosis, kidney patients tipped into needing dialysis, diabetics, thyroid patients, etc — numbers in the millions.”
The CDC is obviously acting against the health of the American people. But the threat to the lives of the American people posed by the CDC’s behavior does not stop there. It participated in designed pandemic laws that are on the books in every state in the US, which arrange for the government to use military to force unknown, untested vaccines, drugs, chemicals, and “medical” treatments on the entire country if it declares a pandemic emergency.
The CDC’s credibility in declaring such a pandemic emergency is non-existent, again based on Freedom of Information Act. For in 2009, after the CDC had declared the H1N1 “pandemic,” the CDC refused to respond to Freedom of Information Act filed by CBS News and the CDC also attempted to block their investigation. What the CDC was hiding was its part in one of the largest medical scandals in history, putting out wildly exaggerated data on what it claimed were H1N1 cases, and by doing so, created the false impression of a “pandemic” in the US.
The CDC was also covering up e financial scandal to rival the bailout since the vaccines for the false pandemic cost the US billions. And worse, the CDC put pregnant women first in line for an untested vaccine with a sterilizing agent, polysorbate 80, in it. Thanks to the CDC, “the number of vaccine-related “fetal demise” reports increased by 2,440 percent in 2009 compared to previous years, which is even more shocking than the miscarriage statistic [700% increase].
The exposure of the vaccine hoax is running neck and neck with the much older hoax of a deadly 1918-19 flu. It was aspirin that killed people in 1918-19, not a pandemic flu. It was the greatest industrial catastrophe in human history with 20-50 million people dying but it was blamed on a flu. The beginning of the drug industry began with that success (and Monsanto was part of it). The flu myth was used by George Bush to threaten the world with “another pandemic flu that could kill millions” – a terror tactic to get pandemic laws on the books in every state and worldwide. Then the CDC used hoax of the pandemic hoax to create terror over H1N1 and to push deadly vaccines on the public, killing thousands of unborn children and others. (CDC will not release the data and continues to push the same vaccine.)
The hoax of the vaccine schedule is over, exposed by FOIAs in the UK.
The hoax of the CDC’s interest in children’s lives has been exposed by its refusal to respond to a doctor’s FOIAs around its knowledge of vaccine dangers.
The 1918-19 pandemic hoax has been exposed by Dr. Karen Starko’s work on aspirin’s role in killing people.
And despite refusing to respond to FOIAS, the CDC’s scandalous hoax of a 2009 flu pandemic and its part in creating it, was exposed by CBS NEWS.
And the Obama administration, in attempting to salvage the last vestige of secrecy around what is really happening with vaccines, by declaring agency documents non-existent, has made its claim of transparency, non-existent.
But pandemic laws arranging for unknown vaccines to be forced on the entire country are still in place with HHS creating a vaccine mixture that should never be used on anyone and all liability for vaccines having been removed. Meanwhile, a Canadian study has just proven that the flu vaccine containing the H1N1 vaccine which kills babies in utero, actually increases the risk of serious pandemic flu.
Americans who have been duped into submitting their children to the CDC’s deadly vaccines, have a means to respond now. People from every walk of life and every organization, must
1. take the information from the UK FOIAs exposing 30 years of vaccine lies, the refusal of the CDC to provide any information on what it knows about those lies, and the Obama Administration’s efforts to hide the CDC’s awareness of those lies, and go to their state legislatures, demand the immediate nullification of the CDC vaccine schedule and the pandemic laws.
2. inform every vet. active duty military person, law enforcement people, DHS agents and medical personnel they know, of the vaccine hoax, for their families are deeply threatened, too, but they may not be aware of it or that they have been folded into agency structures by the pharmaceutical industry (indistinguishable from the bankers and oil companies) that would make them agents of death for their country with the declaration of a “pandemic” emergency or “bio-terrorist” attack. It is completely clear now that the terrorism/bioterrorism structures are scams so that any actions taken to “protect” this country using those laws would in fact be what threatens the existence of Americans.
It was aspirin that killed millions in 1918-19. Now it is mandated and unknown, untested vaccines with banned adjuvants in them that threaten the country with millions of deaths. At the same time, the CDC is holding 500,000 mega-coffins, built to be incinerated, on its property outside Atlanta. Not to put to fine a point on this, but it’s clear now that the CDC should not be involved in any way with public health.
Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), we know that vaccines are not a miracle of modern medicine. Any medical or government authority which insists vaccines prevent diseases is either ignorant of government documents (and endless studies) revealing the exact opposite or of the CDC’s attempts to hide the truth about vaccines from the public, or means harm to the public.
Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), we know the vaccine schedule is a hoax.
The health danger to American children and adults are vaccines.

4 Effective Ways to Use Colloidal Silver
to Deal with Pesky Sinus Problems
(Including Sinus Cough)
A reader recently wrote me, describing a persistent cough she has been battling after coming down with a cold. She wrote:
“I have a cough that I can’t get rid of. This is a dry cough that came on after a cold and I can’t get rid of it. This usually happens to me every winter. This winter I thought I was going to finally go a winter without the cough, but it came on about 1 ½ weeks ago. Is there a way to inhale the silver so it gets into my lungs to help?”
It sounds to me like a sinus issue, rather than a lung issue. I can’t know for sure, of course. And since I’m not a doctor, I can’t diagnose your condition, nor “prescribe” for you what to do.
However, I get pretty much the same thing every year during cold and flu season, and it almost always happens directly after a nasty cold. I don’t know why. But that’s the way it happens. I’ve been to doctors about it repeatedly over the past three or four years, and in every case the doctor tells me, “It’s your sinuses. They’re dripping down the back of your throat, triggering your cough. You need to start using one of the over-the-counter anti-allergy medications in order to stop it.“
Well, I won’t do that because I don’t like the side effects of allergy or sinus medications. But thankfully, based upon my research for The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, I’ve found that there are four basic ways to get colloidal silver up into the sinus cavities and resolve the problem:
This is probably the simplest method of resolving the sinus problem and related cough. But in my own personal experience it is not as effective as any of the other three methods below. So if that doesn’t work for you, you might want to consider trying this:
Method #2 – Go to the pharmacy section of Wal-Mart and purchase one of those little one-ounce or two-ounce nasal squeeze spray bottles full of saline solution that people use to spray a fine mist of saline solution up into their sinuses. They cost about a buck.But what you’re going to do when you get it home is grab the little nipple-nozzle and pull it right out of the bottle. Then dump the saline solution and wash the empty squeeze spray bottle out real good. Then rinse it out real good with distilled water.
Finally, fill it about half-way with colloidal silver (no more than halfway or it won’t spray the fine mist you need) and put the little nipple-nozzle back in. Then start using it to spray a fine mist of colloidal silver up into your nostrils at least three or four times a day, while sniffing vigorously to get it up into the sinuses. That usually does the trick. But if not there’s another method avid colloidal silver users use:
Method #3 – Go to the pharmacy section of Wal-Mart and buy a small plastic pot with a long spout, called a “neti pot.” The neti pot allows you to completely flush your sinuses. It usually comes with little packets of powder containing sea salt and baking soda.
Basically, you follow the directions that come with the neti pot, adding lukewarm water to the basin of the pot, while stirring in a packet of the powder. But you’re going to add about a half ounce to an ounce of colloidal silver to the mix and make sure it’s well stirred.
The general idea is to stand over a bathroom sink, lean forward, turn your head to one side, and insert the end of the long neti pot spout into one of your nostrils, and then literally start pouring the solution into your nostril. It will go straight to your sinus cavity, and then run out your other nostril. I know it sounds weird. But go to this web site and read more about using a neti pot and colloidal silver for sinus problems. Then follow the simple video instructions you’ll find there on how to flush your sinuses using a neti pot.
Method #4 – Finally, if all else fails, you can nebulize colloidal silver up into your sinuses. This is perhaps the most effective way ever devised of getting rid of sinus infections and related sinus problems, according to just about everyone I know who’s used it (including myself).
It’s a last resort for most people, because medical nebulizers are genrally hard to come by and they can be a bit pricey. Plus, they are considered to be medical devices, so most commercial outlets want a prescription from your doctor before they’ll sell you one.
However, people often sell them on eBay. And you can easily pick one up for under $40 by going to eBay and using the eBay search engine. Just search under the term “Omron Nebulizer” (Omron is one of the top manufacturers of commercial nebulizers).
In case you don’t know it, a nebulizer is a device generally used by asthmatics to get asthma medicine directly into their lungs. It has a small plastic well that usually holds about an ounce of liquid medication.
You simply fill the tiny plastic well with colloidal silver instead, and then turn the device on and it will rather quickly start turning the liquid colloidal silver solution into a very fine mist that closely resembles fog. Nebulizers have a spout through which the fog-like mist comes out, allowing you to lean forward toward the spout and gently inhale the mist into your lungs.
But when you’re using colloidal silver in a nebulizer in order to deal with pesky sinus issues, you simply start inhaling the mist gently through your nostrilsinstead of through your mouth. That way the fine, fog-like colloidal silver mist coats your sinus cavities as you breathe it in.
Most people I know do this for anywhere from three to five minutes at a time, and then stop. You may have to do it several times throughout the course of the day, initially. But it doesn’t take long to start healing your sinuses, and you can then judge how often you need to use it after that. For me, it generally knocks out a sinus problem (along with that irritating sinus cough) in two or three days, or less.
Okay, those are the four basic methods for using colloidal silver to deal with pesky sinus problems. Again, I’m not “diagnosing” or “prescribing.” Just reporting what I’ve learned in the course of my research for The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual.
Be sure to let me know how it works out for you, should you decide to try any of these methods!
And please be sure to join the new Colloidal Silver Secrets Community on Facebook, where you can ask and answer questions about colloidal silver and its usage…participate in ongoing Discussion threads…learn about the latest ways to use colloidal silver…and much, much more!

Homeopathic vaccine alternatives
VACCINES – Oh yay … judging from the calls I’ve received, people are waking up to the dangers of WMD (weapons of mass destruction) being peddled via vaccinations.
Now, we need the flip-side ….. can anyone assist with information about the homeopathic alternatives.
Please share your successes – where you’ve found them, what they’re called etc etc etc. Wish I’d known about this when my children were little. I would have been a prime rebel on this score! Many thanks
For South African parents
I/We, ________________________________________________ the parents / guardians
of _____________________________________ hereby state that we have chosen to not
vaccinate our child due to medical (and/or) religious/conscience concerns.
We maintain that we have investigated the reported risks and benefits of vaccination. We
maintain we are making a responsible and ethical choice for the following reasons:
1. Vaccination is a medical intervention performed on a healthy child that has the ability
to injure or cause the death of the child;
2. The fact that there cannot be a guarantee that the deliberate introduction of live or
killed microorganisms into the body of a healthy child will not compromise the health
or cause the death of that child, either immediately or in the future;
3. there are no predictors in science that can give advance warning that injury or death
may occur in any particular child that is vaccinated;
4. there are no proven assurances that the vaccine will protect the child from contracting
5. there is an absence of adequate scientific knowledge regarding the way vaccines
interact with the human body on a molecular level.
Therefore, we believe that vaccination is a medical procedure that could reasonably be
termed as experimental each time it is administered to a healthy child.
We accept full responsibility for the health of our child.
In the event any of “vaccine-preventable” disease outbreak in our community, our child is
the one at risk, our child will remain home. We understand your facility would exclude our
child and we will gladly make arrangements for our child stay home.
We are aware that Paragraph 16 of the NATIONAL EDUCATION POLICY ACT, 1996
(ACT NO. 27 OF 1996) ADMISSION POLICY FOR ORDINARY PUBLIC SCHOOLS states
that on application for admission, a parent must show proof that the learner has been
immunised against the following communicable diseases: polio, measles, tuberculosis,
diphtheria, tetanus and hepatitis B. We are aware that paragraph 16 states that if a parent
is unable to show proof of immunisation, the principal must advise the parent on having
the learner immunised as part of the free primary health care programme. We understand
that although we must be advised on immunising this is not a condition for admission. We
also acknowledge the advisement on vaccinating for the polio, measles, tuberculosis,
diphtheria, tetanus and hepatitis B and confirm respectfully that we decline all vaccinations
for our child.
We are also aware that section 9 (3) and (4) under the Bill of Rights on Equality states:
neither “the State” nor “any person” may “unfairly discriminate, directly or indirectly, against
anyone on one or more grounds” including “religion”, “conscience” and “belief”. We are
aware that ISASA (Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa) adheres to South
Africa’s Constitution and Bill of Rights
