Monsanto’s Toxic and Mutated World – Is Sugar Safe to Eat?
Of course, GMO sugar, like other GMO “foods,” doesn’t need to be labeled as such (because nobody in their right mind would buy it if it were). Half the refined sugar in the U.S. is from beets – and insiders say the industry has quickly converted to the GMO Frankenfood beets, estimating up to 95% of farmers are now using them. Beet sugar is often mixed with cane sugar, meaning that unless a product lists the ingredient as cane sugar or organic cane sugar then it now likely contains GMO mutant beet-derived sugar.

Jeffrey Smith talks about consumer power ... we are the ones who can get rid of GMOs in our foods. We just have to get the information out there and avoid the modified foods. "Healthy eating starts with no GMOs".
JUNK FOOD TURNS RATS INTO ADDICTS
To see how junk food affects the brain’s natural reward system — the network of nerve cells that release feel-good chemicals — Johnson started at the grocery store. He loaded up on typical Western fare, including Ho Hos, sausage, pound cake, bacon and cheesecake. Johnson fed rats either a standard diet of high-nutrient, low-calorie chow, or unlimited amounts of the palatable junk food. Rats that ate the junk food soon developed compulsive eating habits and became obese. “They’re taking in twice the amount of calories as the control rats,” says Johnson’s coauthor Paul Kenny.
Hold the MSG: Food Triggers for Epilepsy and Other Neurological Illnesses
Because of their activity--stimulating nerve cells to rapidly fire and burn out, ultimately resulting in nerve cell death, the food additives are considered to be "excitotoxins." While some naturally occur in the body, people who consume processed foods are exposed to a much greater amount than ever before since industrial food scientists regularly add them to processed foods to enhance the food's flavor. The most widely used food ingredients that have excitotoxic activity are monosodium glutamate, aspartame, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, and other additives that stimulate the taste buds and mask the flavor of many processed foods, Fresh, natural foods don't require this form of flavor enhancement. The artificial sweetener, aspartame, marketed as NutraSweet, Equal, and under several other brand names, is one of most widely consumed of the food additives with excitotoxic activity.
People for Safe Drinking Water

Video: Vitamin D and Cancer Prevention
In a new study, researchers at the Moores Cancer Center and Department of Family and Preventive Medicine, UC San Diego used a complex computer prediction model to determine that intake of vitamin D3 and calcium would prevent 58,000 new cases of breast cancer and 49,000 new cases of colorectal cancer annually in the US and Canada. The researchers model also predicted that 75% of deaths from these cancers could be prevented with adequate intake of vitamin D3 and calcium. Dr. Cedric Garland, UCSD School of Medicine, lead researcher on the study discusses the implications of this finding and the proposed actions.
Curry spice 'kills cancer cells'
The chemical - curcumin - has long been thought to have healing powers and is already being tested as a treatment for arthritis and even dementia.
Now tests by a team at the Cork Cancer Research Centre show it can destroy gullet cancer cells in the lab.An earlier article on this site talks about how and why curcumin and similar substances can turn cancer cells back into team players who feel they are part of the organism.

Psychotropic drugs misused at nursing homes
Some Illinois nursing homes are misusing psychotropic drugs on residents, leading them to experience dangerous side effects and fatal falls, according to a report in the Chicago Tribune.
The newspaper said that it found 1,200 violations involving use of the drugs since 2001, affecting nearly 3,000 nursing home residents.
Gardasil Researcher Drops A Bombshell
Dr. Diane Harper, lead researcher in the development of two human papilloma virus vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, said the controversial drugs will do little to reduce cervical cancer rates and, even though they’re being recommended for girls as young as nine, there have been no efficacy trials in children under the age of 15.
Dr. Harper, director of the Gynecologic Cancer Prevention Research Group at the University of Missouri, made these remarks during an address at the 4th International Public Conference on Vaccination which took place in Reston, Virginia on Oct. 2-4.Very rare ... they say about this side effect of vaccination. But are we sure we should accept even ONE case like that?
FOURTH PERSON DIES IN SWEDEN FROM SWINE FLU JAB: NO END IN SIGHT
The news that a fourth person has died after taking the "swine flu" jab in Sweden is focussing attention on the failure of the Swedish Medical Products Agency (MPA) to halt the "swine flu" programme even as reports of serious side effects flood in.
The Swedish drug regulator has allowed the "swine flu" jab campaign to be launched even though there is no safety or efficacy data on the vaccine. GlaxoSmithKline's Pandemrix with mercury and squalene has been given approval under new and lax European Union regulations formulated by the European Medicines Agency, (EMEA) for a "pandemic emergency" that do not require safety or efficacy data.
The EMEA derives three-quarters of its funding from pharmaceutical companies.
The Plague, the Flu, and You
The media has everyone worrying about epidemics and pandemics. Yet there is nothing said about one of the great communicable diseases of all time: the plague. The Black Death.
Vitamin D might lessen your flu risk
Vitamin D deficiency is common in the winter as we receive it in large amounts from the sun and in smaller quantities from oily fish like mackerel, herring, sardines and foods like eggs and fortified milk.
Vitamin D is crucial in boosting the immune system and defending itself against invading organisms.
The unrecognised epidemic of vitamin D deficiency is a contributing factor of many chronic debilitating diseases as adequate vitamin D is required to support multiple organs in the body. Vitamin D deficiency affects the immune system's capacity to regulate itself.
Without Vaccine, Australia Shrugs Off Swine Flu
In light of Australia clearly showing the pussycat nature of H1N1, can somebody explain why America's media willfully ignores the news from Australia? However, despite the derelict media, I would think U.S. Health Generals would certainly be up on Flu news from Down Under, and certainly from Canada right next door.

And, by the way, there is much more information out there...
There is a lot I cannot cover but other sources for this kind of information exist.
Dr Mercola's health blog, Mike Adams' Natural News and the One Click Group in the UK have good health information. The Dr Rath Foundation is also putting out a weekly collection of health related news. Here is the link to their Newsletter Archive.
