Stop Being Brainwashed on Fat

LewRockwell » LRC Blog
From the article “Why is the Federal Government Afraid of Fat?” from the New York Times. This fear of fat has had far-reaching impacts, from consumer preferences to the billions of dollars spent by the military, government-run hospitals and school districts on food. As we argue in a recently published article in The Journal of the American Medical Association, 35 years after that policy shift, it’s long past time for us to exonerate dietary fat. Except the authors get it wrong – the Federal Government is not afraid of fat, but the corporatocracy is. The Industrial Food Complex, which is … Continue reading

Fracking Linked to Heart Conditions and Neurological Illness Main RSS Feed
People who live near fracking sites suffer higher rates of heart conditions and neurological illnesses, says new research.

People who live in fracking zones appear to suffer a higher rate of heart conditions and neurological illnesses, according to new research.

Although the U.S. study was unable to determine a specific reason, it suggests there may be a link between drilling and ill health, scientists said.

Residents in high-density areas of fracking made 27 per cent more hospital visits for treatment for heart conditions than those from locations where no fracking took place, according to a new study of drilling in Pennsylvania between 2007 and 2011.

“This study captured the collective response of residents to hydraulic fracturing in zip codes within counties with higher well densities,” said Reynold Panettieri, professor of medicine at Penn University.

TAKE ACTION: Tell Congress to pass the FRAC Act

“At this point, we suspect that residents are exposed to many toxicants, noise and social stressors due to hydraulic fracturing near their homes and this may add to the increased number of hospitalisations.”

The findings revealed that cardiology and neurological in-patient prevalence rates  were significantly higher in areas closer to active wells. Hospitalizations for skin conditions, cancer and urological problems also increased with proximity to wells.

Prof Panettieri cautioned that the study did not prove that fracking actually caused the health problems and said more research was needed to determine exactly what effect any pollution associated with the technique may be contributing to heart conditions or neurological illnesses.

But the significant increase in hospital visits observed relatively quickly after fracking began in an area “suggests that healthcare costs of hydraulic fracturing must be factored into the economic benefits of unconventional gas and drilling”, said the report, which is published in the journal PLOS One and also involved Columbia University in New York.

The highly controversial technique of fracking, that releases oil or gas from shale by blasting a mixture of water, chemicals and sand into rock, is yet to be employed in the U.K. on a commercial scale. It is widespread in the U.S., however, where it has frequently been linked to groundwater and air pollution.

Yet a series of reports in the U.K. have concluded that the problems arising from fracking in the U.S. are down to weak regulations and poor techniques. Advocates say that any fracking in the U.K. would be done safely, meaning residents will be shielded from the difficulties experienced by locals in the U.S.

But opponents of fracking – including the Scottish and Welsh Governments – argue that still far too little is known about the effects of the technique, and say more research needs to be done before it is deployed in the U.K.

This latest report will be seen as further evidence that more research needs to be conducted before fracking is allowed in the U.K. – even though it does not get to the bottom of the causes of the health problems.

A taxpayer-funded organization reportedly selling baby hearts and livers should be a huge story. Not so, say the broadcast networks, which have devoted just 39 seconds to the story, out of the 9 hours and 30 minutes of news shows they’ve aired since it broke.

The broadcast networks censored an undercover video of Planned Parenthood senior director of medical services Dr. Deborah Nucatola explaining how her organization procures and sells the body parts of aborted babies. Of the three broadcast networks, only NBC has mentioned the footage released July 14 by the “anti-abortion” Center for Medical Progress (CMP) – in a mere 39 seconds.

POLITICAL ENEMEY #1: Judge Just Ordered ‘2016 – Obama’s America’ Documentary Director to Go Through Something Outrageous as Punishment for Opposing Obama

Liberty News » Liberty News
2016 Obama’s America is quickly becoming a proven blueprint for what Obama’s ultimate agenda is. In the movie it was predicted that Obama’s anti-America roots would provoke him to weaken the historical colonialist mindset that drives prosperity and freedom in America. Today it’s extremely difficult to try and argue Obama’s agenda isn’t doing exactly that. And on a freakishly fast timeline. Of course, Obama and his ilk in power aren’t thrilled with the truth of their agenda getting out. Dinesh D’Souza, creator and director of the film, has been the subject of Obama’s which hunt for years now. And just

The American Medical Association Seeks to Silence “Quack” MD’s

Health Impact News
Over 200 years ago, the founding fathers of our country recognized freedom of speech as a guiding principle and a right of all U.S. citizens. Since the Bill of Rights was passed in 1791, people have protested wars, laws, and restrictions to freedom. It took over 100 years, but women and African-Americans were finally recognized as equal to white men based on these principles. Whether in print, on TV or radio, on the internet, or yelling on a street corner, the right to express an opinion should never be silenced. But apparently, the American Medical Association feels differently. They would like to restrict medical doctors from participating in “quackery.” The MD’s have rallied against other healthcare providers for a hundred years. Targets have included DO’s, chiropractors, and homeopathic physicians. Competition for medical doctors arose because of toxic therapies, surgeries, and procedures. The founding father of osteopathic medicine wrote extensively on the body’s inherent ability to heal itself when you removed the offending agent. Traditional doctors are against alternative medicine and they will fight tooth and nail to protect their turf. We are talking about trillions of dollars after all.

California Now Wants to be First State to Mandate Adult Vaccines – Criminal Penalties for those Who Refuse

California Now Wants to be First State to Mandate Adult Vaccines – Criminal Penalties for those Who Refuse: "SB792- The first US adult vaccine mandate with NO personal exemptions (only medical exemptions approved by a doctor and defined by the bill) and CRIMINAL penalties for failure to comply will be heard in the California Assembly Human Services Committee this Tuesday July 14th at 1:30 in Room 437.

SB 792 would eliminate an adult’s right to exempt themselves from one, some, or all vaccines, a risk-laden medical procedure. This bill would make California the first state to require mandated vaccinations for all childcare workers, including all private and public school early childhood education programs (Headstart, Private preK and preschools), family daycares, and daycare centers."
