GMO Imports Causing Unapproved “Mystery GMO Plants” to Invade Ecosystems

Emerging as the world’s second largest importer of GMO crops, South Korea seems to be a big believer in feeding its citizens GMOs. Oddly enough, though, the country already has a government ban on their cultivation – likely as a means to protect its land from potential GMO dangers while still ‘benefiting’ from GMO foods.

NAFTA probe of Alberta's tailings ponds blocked by Canada

Canada has blocked an investigation into Alberta's tailings ponds by NAFTA's environmental watchdog.

Representatives of the Canadian government, along with Mexico and the United States, on Tuesday passed a resolution behind closed doors to stop the Commission for Environmental Cooperation from looking into whether the federal government is failing to enforce the Fisheries Act.

Two environmental groups and three private citizens had asked the commission to investigate whether tailings ponds were leaking into nearby rivers and creeks in northern Alberta.

FLASHBACK 2008 - Bush Signs Bill To Take All Newborns' DNA

President Bush last week signed into law a bill which will see the federal government begin to screen the DNA of all newborn babies in the U.S. within six months, a move critics have described as the first step towards the establishment of a national DNA database.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even with all the computers the government can buy with your money, the reality is that they do not save all three billion pieces of your DNA. DNA taken from a person is distilled down to a much simpler form, using 13 "standard" STR loci selected by the FBI for CODIS, which is the National DNA database. This severe reduction leads to individuals having matching DNA profiles in the database! For a full and complete profile, each American is estimated to match 20 other Americans. For partial, or incomplete profiles, which are the norm for degraded DNA collected at a crime scene, the number of innocent matches jumps into the 100s! And if the crime scene DNA is actually a mixture of multiple individuals, the probability of a false conviction becomes large enough to be of concern.

But the propaganda is that DNA is infallible, and while that may be true for proving that a suspect was not at the scene of a crime, it is far from true for DNA results indicating guilt. This is over and above the well-documented history of the FBI crime lab falsifying their lab results.

Democrats who wrote Obamacare tell Supreme Court to reject lawsuit

The congressional Democrats involved in writing the Affordable Care Act told the Supreme Court on Wednesday that they intended for consumers in all states to be eligible for subsidies, and they argue that the law they drafted reflects that intention.

Opponents have challenged the Obama administration’s enforcement of the law, arguing that it only allows subsidies to be paid in states that set up their own exchanges, but not to customers in most of the country who use the federal exchange.

Why A Fake Article Titled "Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs?" Was Accepted By 17 Medical Journals

As a medical researcher at Harvard, Mark Shrime gets a very special kind of spam in his inbox: every day, he receives at least one request from an open-access medical journal promising to publish his research if he would only pay $500.

"You block one of them with your spam filter and immediately another one pops up," Shrime, an MD who is pursuing a PhD in health policy, tells me.

These emails are annoying, for sure, but Shrime was worried that there might be bigger issues at stake: What exactly are these journals publishing and who is taking these journals to be credible sources of medical information?

Shrime decided to see how easy it would be to publish an article. So he made one up. Like, he literally made one up.

More than 1m people with asthma may NOT have the condition and could be taking medication unnecessarily

More than a million people receiving treatment for asthma may have been misdiagnosed, experts warned today.

Almost a third of the 4.1m people treated for asthma in the UK did not show any 'clear evidence' of the incurable condition, according to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) .

This means they may be receiving unnecessary treatment.

A whole branch of science turns out to be fake

An open secret has been slowly bleeding out into public consciousness for the past ten years.

THERE ARE NO DEFINITIVE LABORATORY TESTS FOR ANY SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDER.

And along with that:

ALL SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDERS ARE CONCOCTED, NAMED, LABELED, DESCRIBED, AND CATEGORIZED by a committee of psychiatrists, from menus of human behaviors.

Their findings are published in periodically updated editions of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), printed by the American Psychiatric Association.

For years, even psychiatrists have been blowing the whistle on this hazy crazy process of “research.”

Flu shot hoax admitted: "No controlled trials demonstrating a decrease in influenza"

The flu shot is a fraud. But it's a fraud that's so deeply embedded in the delusional pro-vaccine culture of the pharma-controlled medical industry that even well-meaning doctors and pharmacists (who are otherwise very intelligent) fail to realize flu shots don't work. In fact, flu shot vaccine inserts openly admit there is no scientific evidence demonstrating flu shots work. See the vaccine insert photos below for proof.

Vaccines cause sudden death, proves document hidden by Big Pharma for two years

An Italian court has unearthed a formerly classified document that proves vaccines cause death, and that vaccine companies don't want you to know this. As published on the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) website, a 1,271-page report by British drug firm GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) reveals that certain combination vaccines administered to children are known to cause sudden death, but the company chose to obscure and conceal this in official safety reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another aspect of this scandal is that babies who are harmed by vaccines are claimed to suffer from "shaken baby syndrome" and parents have been sent to prison to cover up vaccine damage.

Disney Land Employee’s Fully Covered by MMR Vaccine Still Contracted Measles

In a recent measles outbreak at the Disneyland amusement park in California, five theme park employees and 39 total patients have been reported as contracting the disease.

Seven individuals infected by the measles, who were fully vaccinated with the MMR vaccine, received the illness. Which means that even people who are fully vaccinated can carry the disease and spread it to others.

GMO and Morgellons Disease

Little information has been revealed concerning the long-term health effects of GMO crops on humans or animals, and even less information can be had regarding research correlating Morgellons with GMO foods.

This is suspicious right off the bat, because it would seem that there would be a natural curiosity regarding a link between Genetically Modified Organisms that people ingest regularly and inorganic fibers that protrude from a person’s skin.

This would be right up a geneticist’s alley, and quite worthy of intensive research.

So, why aren’t there a ton of published studies?

Why is it so difficult finding anything related to this?

Could it be that companies such as Monsanto have enough clout to effectively squash these stories?

Ground Beef Soars To $6 Per Pound In Southern California

As fuel prices remain low, grocery prices continue to soar. Ground beef is $6 per lb. in So. Cal today, and that's for 15% fat - non organic! The USDA Economic Research Service, in their report Food Price Outlook, 2015 stated "Beef and veal prices continued to rise, increasing 18.7 percent year-over-year. Prices remain high, as the U.S. cattle inventory is currently at a historical low. While recent rains in the Southern Plains and Southwest have improved pasture conditions somewhat, the drought still continues in these regions. Most retail beef prices, on average, are also at record highs, even after adjusting for inflation. ERS predicts beef and veal prices will increase 5.0 to 6.0 percent in 2015."

Flashback 2012 - "Holocaust, Hate Speech and Were the Germans so Stupid?" by Anthony Lawson

One quarter of a billion Europeans are currently under threat of legal action, should they express any doubts about this issue, and we have already seen the bizarre spectacle of a German lawyer, Sylvia Stoltz, being sent to jail for attempting to defend her client with regard to his views on the issue.

Questioning the details about an event is not denying that the event took place, but along with the so-called anti-Semitic charge, this is a constant mantra of those who are clearly trying to cover up the Zionist's rôle in, not only what happened to the Jews, but what happened to a whole lot of non-Jews during a conflict which, arguably, may never have happened had international Jewry not declared economic warfare on Germany in 1933.

Suppressing free and open discussion on any subject is as bad as telling lies, and knowingly suppressing the truth is the biggest lie of all, because it is based, not on a mistake or a genuine error, but on a deliberate intention to deceive.

In response to this, many Jews were incarcerated in concentration camps, similar to what America did to the Japanese. Some Germans even claim that prior to the war's end when supply lines were cut and starvation and disease was rampant, Jews were treated more humanely than the Japanese in American internment camps.

See what such talk is based on. Many rare photographs, and some surprising footage showing the concentration camps as they are today.

Flashback 2012 - "Auschwitz: Surprising Hidden Truth" by Dean Irebodd

Auschwitz—this is the infamous wartime camp in Poland where the Germans are said to have killed at least one million Jews in homicidal gas chambers, misusing the insecticide called "Zyklon B."

Auschwitz has become a buzzword for the Holocaust. It is said to have been the epicenter of this mother of all genocides. Here, the Germans are said to have employed their engineering ingenuity in order to mass murder their helpless victims in an industrial fashion with the highest efficiency possible. First they were shoved into chemical slaughter houses by the thousands, then their corpses were burned in rapid sequence in crematory ovens

But does that story stand up to scrutiny? This video looks into some of the common claims made by survivors about what happened at Auschwitz.

NASA Scientists Mystified by White Spot on Ceres

NASA's Dawn spacecraft continues its approach to the dwarf planet Ceres for its planned mission. During this approach it has already snapped several images of this small planet located in the asteroid belt. And what these pictures have revealed has mystified scientists at NASA for weeks.

A strange, flickering white blotch has been found on the dwarf planet Ceres, puzzling scientists.

"Yes, we can confirm that it is something on Ceres that reflects more sunlight, but what that is remains a mystery," Mission Director and Chief Engineer for the Dawn mission, Marc Rayman says.

Currently, however, the Dawn spacecraft is too far away to provide any clearer images or study the strange phenomenon.

Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) Own Data Shows Links Between Vaccines and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

The CDC’s own research has found that the long denied vaccine-SIDS link is real.

If you believe the official pronouncements of top governmental health agencies like the CDC and FDA, all the vaccines in the present day schedule are a priori safe and effective.

Not only are you told that they can’t harm you, but that not taking them can kill you.

Parents are under even more pressure. They are told that refraining from vaccinating their infants or children will greatly increase their risk of dying or being disabled. Worse, they are increasingly labeled as ‘crazy’ and ‘irresponsible’ anti-vaccine zealots who are putting the lives of others in danger.

But what happens when the actual evidence from the scientific and clinical literature produced by these very agencies contradicts their own vaccine policies?

A new study shows that more than half the people in some developing countries could become newly at risk for malnutrition if crop-pollinating animals — like bees — continue to decline.

Despite popular reports that pollinators are crucial for human nutritional health, no scientific studies have actually tested this claim — until now. The new research by scientists at the University of Vermont and Harvard University has, for the first time, connected what people actually eat in four developing countries to the pollination requirements of the crops that provide their food and nutrients...

Flashback - Report: New York Governor’s Office Altered And Delayed Fracking Study

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration edited and delayed a fracking study commissioned by the state, according to a review by Capital New York.

The New York news outlet reported Monday that the Cuomo administration had altered a report on the natural gas extraction technique commonly referred to as fracking. The report was commissioned in 2011 and was “going to result in a number of politically inconvenient conclusions” for the governor. A comparison of the original draft of the report, which was put together by the U.S. Geological Survey, and the final version, showed that some of the original descriptions and mentions of fracking-related health and environmental risks were “played down or removed.”

A key report on the impact of fracking was censored 63 times in just 13 pages.

Even the author's name was among the redactions by Whitehall officials, which have been described as 'comical' by campaigners.

The internal report, written in March by Defra's Rural Community Policy Unit, has now brought fresh accusations that the Government has something to hide over the effects of shale gas exploration.

Deleted sections included eight from the executive summary, four from the chapter on economic impacts, four from the section on social impacts, and 17 from the analysis of the impact on local services.

The chapter examining the effect of drilling on house prices had three sections cut. Only three paragraphs survive in the conclusion.

Kunstler: "....enjoy the $2.50-a-gallon fill-ups while you can, grasshoppers."

Anyway, the financial structure of the shale play was suicidal from the get-go. You finance the drilling and fracking with high-yield “junk bonds,” that is, money borrowed from “investors.” You drill like mad and you produce a lot of oil, but even at $105-a-barrel you can’t make profit, meaning you can’t really pay back the investors who loaned you all that money, a lot of it obtained via Too Big To Fail bank carry-trades, levered-up on ”margin,” which allowed said investors to pretend they were risking more money than they had. And then all those levered-up investments — i.e. bets — get hedged in a ghostly underworld of unregulated derivatives contracts that pretend to act as insurance against bad bets with funny money, but in reality can never pay out because the money is not there (and never was.) And then come the margin calls. Uh Oh….

In short, enjoy the $2.50-a-gallon fill-ups while you can, grasshoppers, because when the current crop of fast-depleting shale oil wells dries up, that will be all she wrote.

Afraid of the Disneyland measles outbreak? Don't be fooled by Mickey Mouse science - READ THIS FIRST

In many vaccine inserts, you'll find a warning that admits a person who receives the vaccine can then go on to spread the disease they were just vaccinated against.

The vaccine itself, in other words, can sometimes spread the disease. As printed in the VARIVAX insert:

"Post-marketing experience suggests that transmission of vaccine virus may occur rarely between healthy individuals who develop a varicella-like rash and healthy susceptible contacts."

This is an admission that the chickenpox vaccine can infect a person with chickenpox who can then spread it to someone else.

The genetically modified (GM) crops that are growing in South Korean soil are a major issue in a country with a government ban on their cultivation.

There sits, in the Clarendon Laboratory at Oxford University, a bell that has been ringing, nonstop, for at least 175 years. It's powered by a single battery that was installed in 1840. Researchers would love to know what the battery is made of, but they are afraid that opening the bell would ruin an experiment to see how long it will last.

One Colorado Policeman's Quote Captures the Reality of Marijuana Legalization in America Jared Keller's avatar image By Jared Keller

snip: Crime is down: Marijuana-related arrests, which made up almost 50% of all drug-related crimes as of 2012, plummeted in Colorado in the first six months of legalization in 2014. According to government data, serious crimes have declined in Denver: The murder rate has dropped 24.4% from 2013 to 2014. Violent crime in general declined by more than 1%, and major property crimes are down 8.1% (without counting unresolved cases).

As Vox's German Lopez noted, nothing went "horribly wrong" in the first year of legalization. Fatal traffic accidents fell to near-historic lows, according to an analysis from the Washington Post's Radley Balko. And while there was a small increase in emergency room visits for children related to edible pot, the incidents were not enough to sound the alarm.

Scientists find a way to SLOW DOWN the speed of light: Experiment allows scientists to control racing photons

Scientists have long known that the speed of light can be slowed slightly as it travels through materials such as water or glass.

However, it has generally been thought impossible for particles of light, known as photons, to be slowed as they travel through free space, unimpeded by interactions with any materials.

But now in new research, scientists have managed to slow photons in free space for the first time - suggesting the speed of light is even more complex than we imagined.

Do gulleys prove that water once flowed on Vesta? Solar system's largest asteroid may once have had liquid on its surface, images reveal

One of the largest asteroids in the solar system, Vesta, has evidence of 'recent' water flowing on it, according to Nasa.

Images taken by the Dawn spacecraft, currently on its way to the dwarf planet Ceres, have revealed gulleys on the proto-planet that are just a few hundred million years old.

It indicates objects such as smaller than planets are able to have liquids on their surface - and suggests water may exist in more places than we thought in the universe.

High Fructose Corn Syrup Is More Toxic Than Refined Sugar

Dr. Robert Lustig, Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology at the University of California, has been a pioneer in decoding sugar metabolism.

He’s become quite well-known in recent years for stating that excessive amounts of sugar in your diet has toxic effects. He’s also pointed out that processed fructose is far worse, from a metabolic standpoint, than refined sugar.

Now, new research1,2 from the University of Utah confirms Dr. Lustig’s stance, showing that corn syrup is more toxic to female mice than table sugar. Not only did corn syrup adversely impact the animals’ rate of reproduction, it also caused premature death.

From a chemical standpoint, high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is similar to table sugar, but it does contain higher levels of fructose.

Manufacturers have long claimed that HFCS contains at most 55 percent fructose (and 45 percent glucose). This is very close to white sugar, which contains about 50 percent fructose (and 50 percent glucose).

Wi-Fi Exposure: Is It Really More Hazardous to Children?

Many substances in today’s industrialized world are known carcinogens, such as lead, chloroform, certain pesticides, along with about 250 others, including radio-frequency electromagnetic fields (RF/EMF), also referred to as microwave radiation. Direct exposure to certain levels of these substances to the human body can be quite detrimental, resulting in respiratory diseases or other long-term, sometimes fatal ailments.

Because of modern communications technologies, our exposure to EMF continues to increase. Appliances such as TVs, microwaves and smart meters all emit microwave radiation, but more importantly so do all of our personal, wirelessly-connected devices such as cell phones, tablets and laptops.

Researchers are now questioning if exposure to Wi-Fi, and the increasing usage of Wi-Fi connected devices by children and adolescents, are putting the younger generations at a greater risk of health complications in their future.

VIDEO: DARPA’S ATLAS GETS A HUGE UPGRADE, PREPARES TO ‘CUT THE CORD’

ATLAS, the standard-bearer for the next generation of robotics, is back and better than ever. In fact, it’s fully 75% better than ever, as the newest version of Google and Boston Dynamics’ humanoid robot carries over only a quarter of its parts from earlier prototypes. Everything from the battery pack to the arm strength has been upgraded, and not just for the sake of it — DARPA is getting ready to have ATLAS “cut the cord,” along with the rest of the competitors in its challenge in robot AI. Soon enough, ATLAS will be stomping through simulated “disaster” (combat) zones to “save” (neutralize) “civilians” (whomever) with total autonomy, and with no tether to undo a fall.

Rosetta will prompt science images rethink

The European Space Agency needs to find a new way for images and other data acquired by its science missions to come out into the public domain.

That is the view of the organisation's director general, Jean-Jacques Dordain.

He was expressing his frustration at not seeing more pictures from the main camera system on Esa's Rosetta probe, which is tracking Comet 67P.

These images are subject to a six-month embargo to allow the mission team to make discoveries without being scooped.

But the policy has upset the thousands of ordinary members of the public who follow Rosetta on a daily basis because they are not being shown the very best views that have been acquired.

Monsanto agrochemicals cause genetic damage in soybean workers – study

Soybean workers exposed to the agrochemicals like glyphosate, the main component in Monsanto’s ‘Roundup’ herbicide and other biocides, suffer from elevated DNA and cell damage, according to a new study.

The study, published in the journal Mutation Research/Genetic Toxicology and Environmental Mutagenesis, involved 127 people, including 81 exposed to biocides while working in the Brazilian soybean industry and 46 non-exposed individuals in a control group.

The exposed group exhibited an elevated level of cellular apoptosis, as well as DNA damage, according to researcher Danieli Benedetti and his team, which concluded that the now-common use of genetically-modified soybeans in the State of Rio Grande do Sul, especially in the city of Espumoso, has toxic ramifications for workers.

“Our findings indicate the advisability of monitoring genetic toxicity in soybean farm workers exposed to pesticides,” the researchers said.

Terrifying experiments are conducted on animals so that you can eat cheap, tasty meat

The federal government is behind the hideous and inhumane experimentation on livestock animals, according to a new report by the New York Times.

The Times says that a little-known agricultural and veterinary research facility, the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center, conducts experiments in breeding and performs surgery on farm animals so that they’ll produce more offspring, yield more meat and be less expensive to raise. However, the Times says that these experiments have turned grisly, and many livestock have been subjected to unneeded pain, illness and even premature death.

Australian father arrested for giving cancer-stricken daughter cannabis oil

Koessler was arrested in Brisbane where he was meeting Rumor’s oncologist, and charged with supplying dangerous drugs to a person under 16 and possession of dangerous drugs, the news site reported.

“Her cancer-ridden little body was alive again— Rumer had almost instant quality of life,” Koessler told the Newcastle Herald. “She would say, ‘Daddy, tummy’s not sore,’ and she would be able to eat like a champion and begin to gain weight,” he said of the cannabis oil treatment.

“Her skin color came back, her eyes were sparkling again and we just looked at each other in complete amazement,” Koessler said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is revealing in this story is that the officially approved treatments were not working, but the cannabis was! And THAt is why he was arrested and prevented from seeing his daughter, whose symptoms have now returned.

Second Canadian Company Completing Tar-Sands Pipeline into the U.S.

For six years, TransCanada has negotiated federal and state laws, and contended with the opposition of environmental organizations and landowners, to build the Keystone XL: a 36-inch-diameter, 1,700-mile pipeline that, if completed, would transport 830,000 barrels per day (bpd) of Canadian tar-sands oil from Alberta, Canada, to the Gulf Coast.

The U.S. State Department has not issued the required presidential permit, which would declare the importing of tar-sands oil in the “national interest.” And the Nebraska Supreme Court just heard oral arguments on a landowners’ lawsuit that could cost TransCanada another year if it has to reapply for its permit in the state.

The stalled process has led one equities analyst to observe that, “Keystone XL doesn’t look like it will ever get fully up and running.”

A father stopped from seeing his dying daughter because he gave her cannabis oil to ease her suffering has finally been allowed to spend time with his little girl.

Adam Koessler was arrested and charged earlier this month after giving his two-year-old daughter Rumer a medicinal form of the drug as she battles late-stage cancer.

Australian Adam claims that Rumer, who has a Stage 4 neuroblastoma, showed remarkable improvements after she was given the oil, but authorities say he has broken drugs laws and his bail conditions forbid him from being alone with his daughter.

Washington state threatens to seize baby unless entire family gets flu shot

State authorities and medical authorities often team up to intimidate individuals and families into giving up their personal liberty, forcing them to bow to their authority.

News just came in that the Washington Department of Social and Health Services is intimidating a foster family to subject their entire family to mandated flu shots. Foster parent Jamie Smith of Tacoma, Washington, is being threatened by authorities. The authorities are using a foster child currently under Jamie's care as a weapon against her. The state says Jamie will lose custody of her two-week-old infant if she doesn't subject the child and her entire family to flu shots. The family has until February to comply, or they will lose their infant, who was born on Christmas.

"Canadian Flu Vaccine Paradox" Admits Vaccines Are Causing More Illness

People who receive flu vaccines year after year can sometimes show reduced protection, an effect that Canadian infectious disease specialists say muddies public health messages for annual flu vaccine campaigns.

During the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, researchers at the B.C. Centre for Disease Control originally thought seasonal flu shots from 2008 might offer extra protection against the new pandemic strain. They were puzzled to find instead, seasonal flu vaccination almost doubled the risk of infection with pandemic flu.

The Fraudulent Nature of the Pharmaceutical Investment Industry

The Laws of the Pharmaceutical Business with Disease

Some people may say that the pharmaceutical industry cannot be that bad. Unfortunately, it is. Fortunately, however, it is very easy for everyone to understand why this industry has such a detrimental effect on millions of human lives.

It is not about individual drugs or individual companies. It is about the principles – the laws – of the pharmaceutical ‘business with disease’. The most important of these laws can be summarized in the following way:

The pharmaceutical industry is not a ‘health industry’, but an ‘investment business’ that thrives on the continuation and expansion of diseases.
The pharmaceutical industry makes more than 500 billion dollars in profits each year – but only as long as disease exist as their markets.

OAKLAND POLICE PROVIDE PROOF THAT LICENSE PLATE READERS ARE CREATING A DATABASE OF AMERICANS

Since May 2013, EFF and the ACLU have been engaged in a legal battle with two Los Angeles law enforcement agencies who are refusing to hand over a week’s worth of ALPR data. San Diego County, another jurisdiction, has fought efforts by citizens to obtain access to data that law enforcement has collected on them using ALPRs. Both claim that the records are exempted under the California Public Records Act because they are records of law enforcement investigations. The agencies also argue the public interest in maintaining secrecy in ALPR data outweighs the public interest in learning how and where ALPR systems are being used.

The Forgotten History of Vaccinations You Need to Be Aware Of

Vaccines are one of the most controversial medical therapies, and it's impossible to make an informed decision unless you know both sides of the story. In the process of knowing both sides, the historical context is critical.

Dr. Suzanne Humphries, author of Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History,1 is a nephrologist who has committed the latter part of her medical career to exposing the "lost history" of vaccinations.

Barbara Loe Fisher of NVIC commented that this is one of the rare books that conducted in-depth research documenting the medical history related to mass vaccination programs and infectious diseases.

I have read the book from cover to cover and would strongly recommend that you pick up a copy if you have even the remotest interest in this topic, especially if you believe in the safety and necessity of vaccines, as the comprehensive documentation will likely cause you to reevaluate your position.

Beard on King Tut's burial mask damaged after epoxy gluing

The museum is one of the city's main tourist sites, but in some areas, ancient wooden sarcophagi lay unprotected from the public, while pharaonic burial shrouds, mounted on walls, crumble from behind open panels of glass. Tutankhamun's mask, over 3,300 years old, and other contents of his tomb are its top exhibits.

Three of the museum's conservators reached by telephone gave differing accounts of when the incident occurred last year, and whether the beard was knocked off by accident while the mask's case was being cleaned, or was removed because it was loose.

They agree however that orders came from above to fix it quickly and that an inappropriate adhesive was used. All spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of professional reprisals.

Scientists create 'genetic firewall' for new forms of life

A year after creating organisms that use a genetic code different from every other living thing, two teams of scientists have achieved another "synthetic biology" milestone: They created bacteria that cannot survive without a specific manmade chemical, potentially overcoming a major obstacle to wider use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The advance, reported on Wednesday in Nature, offers what one scientist calls a "genetic firewall" to achieve biocontainment, a means of insuring that GMOs cannot live outside a lab or other confined environment.

CDC caught inflating flu deaths to sell more vaccines

You know that "36,000" number the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) is constantly throwing around as the number of people in the U.S. who supposedly die every year from influenza? It's completely made up, and its purpose is to sell more flu vaccines, as evidenced by actual mortality data showing that only a few hundred people at most die from influenza annually.

As highlighted by the American Society of Registered Nurses (ASRN), government claims that tens or even hundreds of thousands of people are dying left and right because they aren't getting their flu shots is total bunk. Data pulled from death certificates and the U.S. National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) reveal that very few people die from the flu, suggesting that it really isn't much of a threat.

Report: EPA Tested Deadly Air Pollutants On Children

A government watchdog group has obtained documents detailing how the EPA exposed children as young as 10 to deadly air pollutants without disclosing the full risks of the substances.

Government watchdogs say these EPA-backed studies could violate California state and federal law, because children were exposed to diesel exhaust in experiments with no health benefits to the subjects.

Between 2003 and 2010, the EPA backed experiments done at the University of Southern California and the University of California, Los Angeles that exposed children aged 10 to 15 to diesel exhaust — an air pollutant which the EPA and the California Air Resources Board says has no safe exposure limit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder what kinds of neighborhoods these children came from; what their parents were actually told about these experiments; and what the parents were paid for having their kids participate in these experiments.

I would almost be willing to bet real money that these kids didn't come from Beverly Hills,West Lost Angeles, or any other affluent LA community.

Whoever supervised these experiments on children should have their tenure revoked.

These children should be monitored for the rest of their lives, and treated, for ANY ill-effects of these experiments, at no cost to them.

FDA Attacks Man for Selling Supplement that has Healed Tens of Thousands – Facing 37 Years in Prison

For almost 5 years, the FDA has been attacking Daniel Smith of Spokane Washington for selling a mineral supplement that purifies water and has been used in places like Africa by the Red Cross to prevent Malaria. The product is called MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution), and the active ingredient is sodium chlorite, a common mineral that is even used in some municipalities in the U.S. to purify water instead of chlorine.

Daniel Smith will face a trial in less than 30 days, the culmination of close to 5 years of legal battles, that could result in him spending 37 years in prison if convicted.

Why?

Because the FDA has not approved his product for health claims.

Has the product killed anyone? No.

Do FDA approved products kill anyone? Yes.

According to statistics published by medical authorities themselves, FDA prescription drugs are one of the top causes of death in the United States, and probably the #1 cause of death among Americans today.

5 Awful Lessons I Learned Living With a Mystery Illness

Having a chronic, potentially life-threatening illness is terrible, which is why we call it "chronic illness" and not "chronic victory." Luckily, medical science has advanced to such a point over the years that, for the most part, you can go to a doctor to get your symptoms diagnosed and treated with a minimal amount of leeching.

But what if you were violently, persistently ill, and not a single doctor in the country had any idea what was wrong with you? That's what happened to Thomas Wolfe, who suffered from an extremely rare disease that took four damn years to correctly diagnose. We tend to think that modern medicine has identified every possible disease a person can catch, but as we learned when we talked to Mr. Wolfe about his experience, that assumption is dangerously, hilariously far from the truth:

Flight from Paris quarantined in Moscow after suspicion of Ebola on-board

A full passenger plane was quarantined in Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport for about 4 hours, after pilots told the ground staff one of the travelers was suffering from suspected Ebola symptoms.
