FCC Is Supposed to Make Sure 5G Rollout Doesn’t Damage the Environment — It’s Failing at That Job
Children’s Health Defense
The Federal Communications Commission has a broad mandate to ensure that technology doesn’t damage the environment, but as the agency presides over a nationwide buildout for 5G service, requiring 800,000 new “small cell” transmitters, it is ignoring that mandate.

Health research is based on trust. Health professionals and journal editors reading the results of a clinical trial assume that the trial happened and that the results were honestly reported. But about 20% of the time, said Ben Mol, professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at Monash Health, they would be wrong. As I’ve been concerned about research fraud for 40 years, I wasn’t that surprised as many would be by this figure, but it led me to think that the time may have come to stop assuming that research actually happened and is honestly reported, and assume that the research is fraudulent until there is some evidence to support it having happened and been honestly reported. The Cochrane Collaboration, which purveys “trusted information,” has now taken a step in that direction. Read more
I shake my head at those home makeover shows that are so popular on TV.
You know, a couple who are discontented with their home invite a design expert to come in and evaluate the situation. The couple nervously agree to stretch their budget as far as possible to make as much of a change as they can. Then a renovation team takes over, carrying out repairs and upgrades (there’s always an obstacle that arises and creates drama), and after that the designer stages the house with new furniture, store-bought decorations, and this year’s color scheme. Finally the homeowners come back for the big reveal and get teary-eyed at their house’s new look. Read more

Epsom salt baths are an excellent way to destress and detoxify the whole body.
Unlike other naturally occurring salts, Epsom salts are formed from a pure mineral compound containing magnesium and sulfate.
More than 325 enzymes in the body require magnesium to function properly.
Epsom salts have been shown to improve many conditions associated with inflammation and to provide pain relief by pulling out harmful toxins.
You should not take Epsom salt baths if you are pregnant, have exposed cuts or burns on your skin, or are severely dehydrated.
Plan on 40 minutes in the tub for an effective Epsom salts bath.
Use approximately 1/2 cup of Epsom salts for every 50 pounds of weight. Read more

The Influence of Fluorine on the Disturbances of Homeostasis in the Central Nervous System
Fluorides occur naturally in the environment, the daily exposure of human organism to fluorine mainly depends on the intake of this element with drinking water and it is connected with the geographical region. In some countries, we can observe the endemic fluorosis—the damage of hard and soft tissues caused by the excessive intake of fluorine. Recent studies showed that fluorine is toxic to the central nervous system (CNS). There are several known mechanisms which lead to structural brain damage caused by the excessive intake of fluorine. This element is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, and it accumulates in neurons affecting cytological changes, cell activity and ion transport (e.g. chlorine transport). Excessive exposure to this element can cause harmful effects such as permanent damage of all brain structures, impaired learning ability, memory dysfunction and behavioral problems.
How much do they impact your health?
Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising…
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced a new strategy and helped develop a new technology to fluoridate an additional 19+ million Americans, which will also eventually expand to Canadians, Australians and likely others.
- Government-funded studies confirm skyrocketing fluorosis rates, fetal and infant neurotoxicity, and numerous other side effects from fluoridation.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has helped create and promote a new fluoridation system they hope will expose nearly 20 million more Americans to harmful levels of fluoride.
- The governments in the United Kingdom and New Zealand have passed bills that will effectively mandate fluoridation throughout their nations.

Children and EMFs: What You Need to Know
Children are far more vulnerable to the damaging effects of electromagnetic fields than we are. Your child’s brain absorbs two to three times as many EMFs as yours, and sources of exposure are everywhere. What can you do?
Is your child’s favorite pastime screen time? Are you concerned about how much cumulative exposure your kids have to electromagnetic radiation at home and at school from computers, cell phones, tablets, electronic toys, cell towers, power lines and the like?
If not, you should be!
It is well-known that wireless communication technologies facilitate human life. However, the harmful effects of electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation on the human body should not be ignored.

Scientists Call for Moratorium on 5G After Study Shows Regulators Ignoring Health Risks of Radiation
Electronically generated electromagnetic fields (EMFs), including those used in wireless communication such as cell phones, Wi-Fi and smart meters, are coherent, producing very high electric and magnetic forces, which act on the voltage sensor of voltage-gated calcium channels to produce increases in intracellular calcium [Ca2+]i. The calcium hypothesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has shown that each of the important AD-specific and nonspecific causal elements is produced by excessive [Ca2+]i. [Ca2+]i acts in AD via excessive calcium signaling and the peroxynitrite/oxidative stress/inflammation pathway, which are each elevated by EMFs. Read Article

True Health – Viruses and the Germ theory, how your immune system works to protect you 2022
The advent of evidence based medicine was a paradigm shift intended to provide a solid scientific foundation for medicine. The validity of this new paradigm, however, depends on reliable data from clinical trials, most of which are conducted by the pharmaceutical industry and reported in the names of senior academics. The release into the public domain of previously confidential pharmaceutical industry documents has given the medical community valuable insight into the degree to which industry sponsored clinical trials are misrepresented.1234 Until this problem is corrected, evidence based medicine will remain an illusion.

Natural News – October 6, 2020
NaturalNews) The prevailing belief portrayed in the world today is that people are separate from one another. Many people believe they are separate from the natural processes occurring here on Earth, such as how soil is replenished, how food is grown, and how proper nutrition creates well-being inside.
In these beliefs of separateness, their actions toward nature and their lack of interactions with nature do not matter to them. Their actions toward their fellow man do not matter either. Interactions with plants, animals, and even bacteria are viewed through a lens of isolation and fear. For example, man’s role in preserving the health of the soil directly impacts his health. The depletion of nutrients and microbes in the soil via herbicide poisoning ultimately has negative repercussions for the entire community because a diverse array of bacteria is necessary for the people. Bacteria are necessary for establishing healthy human immunity, digestion, and nutrient absorption. These colonies of bacteria live symbiotically with people inside and outside of their bodies, communicating with cells and signaling when the immune system should prepare during stressful times.
