Eating dirt: How clay in your diet can dramatically transform health

Hand-Dirt(NaturalNews) While it may seem counterintuitive for someone who adheres to a clean lifestyle to ingest dirt on a daily basis, age-old cultures, as well as our current day scientific community, have found the practice to be one of the healthiest habits you can adopt. But it’s not just any dirt — specific types of clay prove to be most beneficial. Where to begin?

Dr. Edward F. Group III, founder of the Global Healing Center, recommends a high-quality zeolite or bentonite clay for increasing immunity, cleansing the colon, promoting healthy bacteria in the gut and detoxification of heavy metals. Additionally, research published in the Journal of Molecular Medicine discovered that finely ground zeolite clinoptilolite holds promise as an effective anti-cancer compound.

Why be worried about heavy metals?
Environmental heavy metals are an unfortunate reality in modern life. A byproduct of industry and energy production, we are saturated with these toxins. Found in our drinking water, food supply and the air we breathe, heavy metals are impossible to avoid. Below are four of the most prevalent.

Cadmium – An exceptionally toxic metal, cadmium is found in many soils and rocks as well as coal and mineral fertilizers. Cadmium is used in batteries, pigments, plastics and metal coatings. Long-term exposure can damage the kidneys, lungs and bones.

Mercury – Coal-burning power plants are the largest source of mercury emissions in the United States. Once in the soil and water, microorganisms convert the compound to methylmercury — a bioaccumulating toxin that affects the nervous system, lungs, cardiovascular system and kidneys. Effects on the brain include memory problems, irritability, shyness, changes in vision or hearing and tremors.

Aluminum – Found in an array of personal products, from antiperspirants to cosmetics, as well as baking powders, foodstuffs, antacids, drinking water and pharmaceuticals, exposure to aluminum is difficult to dodge. This heavy metal is considered a neurotoxin and has been linked to the development of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

Lead – Due to the burning of fossil fuels, along with mining and manufacturing, lead is a pervasive environmental toxin. Sources of exposure include water pipes in older homes, paint, contaminated soil, household dust, lead crystal, cosmetics, toys, drinking water and lead-glazed pottery. It’s a suspected human carcinogen, and contact with high levels severely damages the brain and kidneys, ultimately causing death.

Pure South Logo 1How edible clays detoxify the body
Fortunately, we don’t need to be at the mercy of heavy metals. Zeolite in particular has been hailed as a healing miracle for removing stubborn toxic metals from the system. As with all clays, zeolite contains negatively charged molecules. However, zeolite is unique in its honeycomb structure. When zeolite passes through the digestive tract, positively charged toxins (like heavy metals) are attracted to the zeolite molecules. Ions are exchanged, and the molecules are bound together, thereby “locking” toxins into the clay, which are then safely removed from the body without risk of reabsorption.

It’s easy to incorporate healing clays into your daily routine. A teaspoon or two — taken away from meals and mixed with a full glass of water — is the general recommendation for daily, long-term use. Also remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Safety concerns
Controversy surrounds clays, as a majority contain aluminum, mercury, lead and/or cadmium. However, powdered clays are typically insoluble, and any contaminants that remain after purification are held tightly within the structure of the molecules. Zeolite itself is an aluminum-based mineral yet doesn’t pose a toxicity concern. Be that as it may, it’s always wise to source from reputable suppliers who test for purity and sell only food-grade edible clays.

Mind control through emotional domination: How we’re all being manipulated by the “crisis of the NOW”

Old-Electricity-Fence-Warning-Sign-(NaturalNews) What you’re about to read here is a revealing look at the psychological mechanism presently being used by government and media to achieve near-absolute control over the population. I’m calling the concept the “crisis of the NOW,” and understanding this is a lot like taking the RED pill.

The “crisis of the now” involves an incessant, strategic bombardment of the population with a never-ending stream of contrived crises that demand immediate attention in the present. This psychological bombardment is waged primarily via the mainstream media which assaults the viewer by the hour with images of violence, war, emotions and conflict. Because the human nervous system is hard wired to focus on immediate threats accompanied by depictions of violence, mainstream media viewers have their attention and mental resources funneled into the never-ending “crisis of the NOW” from which they can never have the mental breathing room to apply logic, reason or historical context.

To protect the propaganda from scrutiny, no person is ever allowed the luxury of reflection. Logic and reason are condemned. Critical thinking is derided. Historical context is obliterated by the repeated intrusion of the now, and whatever happened just a few short years or months ago is actively rejected (or memory holed) if it does not reinforce whatever present-day delusion is being pushed as “fact.”

Similarly, the future is entirely off limits and never allowed to be explored in the mainstream media because doing so would require reason and forward thinking… two things which are never tolerated because they would reveal the inevitable failures of today’s insane policies, such as running the country on debt and hoping it will somehow not matter down the road.

80% of pesticides found in sediments exceed regulatory thresholds, international study finds

Man-Dock-Lake-Water-Nature(NaturalNews) Freshwater sources worldwide are so heavily contaminated by pesticides that 80 percent of sediment tested at levels that exceed the maximums set by government regulators, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Koblenz-Landau and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

In the United States, European Union, and many other countries, the process of granting government approval to a pesticide involves setting a “regulatory threshold level” (RTL) for that chemical’s concentration in the environment. Theoretically, the RTL is the level at which a chemical will not cause detrimental effects, although in practice, some chemicals are toxic even at their RTL. The RTL is based on laboratory tests of the pesticide’s toxicity.

High levels of contamination widespread
The researchers performed a meta-analysis of 838 prior peer-reviewed studies on the concentration of insecticides in a total of 2,500 surface water sites located in 73 separate countries. The studies included a total of 28 pesticides, nearly all of which are authorized for use in the European Union or United States. Samples were collected between 1962 and 2012.

Of the 11,300 pesticide samples taken, more than half were found to exceed RTL levels; this occurred in 68.5 percent of locations tested. In some cases, pesticides were found at concentrations of 10,000 or more times the RTL.

More specifically, 40 percent of water samples detected pesticides at higher-than-RTL levels, while such levels were found in a shocking 80 percent of sediment samples from the bottom of the water.

The researchers sought to determine whether the problem was worse in poorer African or Asian countries, which tend to have less government regulation than wealthier countries. They found almost no difference: 42 percent of insecticides were found at higher-than-RTL levels in poor African or Asian countries, compared with 40 percent in wealthy countries such as the United States, European Union, Australia, Canada and Japan.

They also found that contrary to assertions that pesticide regulation has improved, newer pesticides were actually more likely to exceed RTLs than older ones.

Robert F Kennedy Jr. Publicly Slams CDC in Vermont Vaccine Testimony

2891139_origBy Jefferey Jaxen

The voices are getting louder, more public, and from inside government. Senators, Congressmen, and a head researcher (at the CDC) are publicly warning of the agency’s lack of integrity and regulatory ineptness. What kind of political process do we have when, in the light of these warnings, authors of bills to remove vaccine exemptions are citing studies and statements from the very same inept agency?

Recently Robert F Kennedy Jr. gave public testimony at the Vermont State House in strong opposition of H.98. This is a bill, with a forced vaccine amendment added, that in its short lifespan has already racked up a laundry list of underhanded techniques, fraud and conflict of interests that should disqualify it. Kennedy launched into his statements and immediately attacked the CDC by stating:

I think we need to begin that process by making sure that the vaccines are safe, they are efficacious and have a regulatory agency which recommends vaccines to the schedule, monitors them, has integrity and creditably. And unfortunately that is not the case at the moment.

Is Wi-Fi making your child ill?

Wi-Fi childSix years ago, Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe moved to the country, stopped carrying a mobile phone and sacrificed a successful career in emergency medicine to focus on a new medical interest – radiation emitted by Wi-Fi, mobiles and other wireless devices.

She is now one of the country’s few professional advisers on medical conditions related to radiofrequency (RF) radiation and other electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

“I was using wireless devices before most people I knew – I loved it,” says Mallery-Blythe, who was ahead of the tech trend even in 1985 when she was handed her first mobile phone, aged 10.

“But as soon as I started digesting the literature on EMFs it was a no-brainer,” she says of her decision to relinquish wireless gadgets.

“I wasn’t willing to take that kind of risk for something that was purely convenient.”

• WiFi is not harming our children: here’s the evidence

• Wi-Fi fears: three-year study into health risks of mobiles to children’s brains

Her interest in EMFs started in 2009 after she began noticing increasing trends in certain symptoms – headaches, insomnia, fatigue and palpitations, but also more serious conditions including brain tumours in young people, fertility problems and accelerating neurological diseases such as early onset Alzheimer’s and autism. As yet there is still no scientific proof that relates these diseases to radiation, but Mallery-Blythe is among a not insignificant number of scientists and practitioners concerned by those studies that do highlight cause for more precaution.

“Government Wants to Control Your Car” and Prevent You From ‘Tinkering’ Under DMCA Copyright

car-ownershipBy Mac Slavo

Think you own your car? Think again.

How much do we truly “own” of our own lives, anyway?

With income taxes, property taxes on homes and property, manipulations and interventions of the markets, the food supply and health care, education and many other areas, we may ultimately own very little. For now, our souls remain out of reach.

Automobiles, our ability to legally drive and our inherent freedom to travel are all under systematic attack.

Buying a car no longer means that you have own it, use it, alter it or modify it. Restrictions on drivers and advanced traffic monitoring are being met with the trickle-down effects on auto manufacturers – the rules for emissions, safety standards and environmental regulations are being used to prevent individuals from tampering with computer-regulated motor technology.

It puts a whole new spin on the concept of the engine governor.

In a forward-thinking post, auto/libertarian blogger Eric Peters wrote:

The government wants to control your car – how it’s made, what it comes equipped with and (of course) how you’re allowed to drive it. Now comes the other half of the pincers:

The car companies want to prevent you from working on the thing.

Modifications – performance enhancements – and even routine maintenance are to become illegal via the application (and enforcement) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to cars.

They are claiming propriety rights to the software embedded in the computer – technically, the Electronic Control Unit or ECU – that pretty much runs a modern car.

They claim – and you knew this was coming, right? – that saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaafety is threatened by people doing their own maintenance or tweaking/tuning as such might affect how the various saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaafety systems embedded in the car and controlled by the ECU operate.

Safety.

The straight jacket is slowly tightening – and, as usual, it is in the name of safety, security and peace of mind.

Your rights of mobility have been restricted by the rules placed on state-licensed vehicles, on environmentally regulated engine parts, and by computer-monitored sensors that act as a black box for authorities, and check for vehicle compliance on these and other matters.

Australian PM Top Advisor: Climate Change “About a New World Order Under the Control of the UN”

greenworldBy Melissa Dykes

This is the kind of quote that would have made big headlines half a decade back or so…

Now, the people at the top are openly admitting in everyone’s face that the global warming data has been falsified for years to bring about authoritarian, global control and it barely catches people’s attention.

This is what they are doing to everyone through everything from propaganda to mandates, and it is working.

Via The Business Insider:

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s top business advisor on Friday claimed climate change was a ruse encouraged by the United Nations to create a new authoritarian world order under its control.

Maurice Newman, chairman of the Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Council, said the real agenda was “concentrated political authority. Global warming is the hook”.

In a column for The Australian newspaper to coincide with a visit by UN climate chief Christiana Figueres, he added that the world had been “subjected to extravagance from climate catastrophists for close to 50 years”.

“It’s a well-kept secret, but 95 percent of the climate models we are told prove the link between human CO2 emissions and catastrophic global warming have been found, after nearly two decades of temperature stasis, to be in error,” he said, without providing evidence.

Newman, a former chairman of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, is a known climate change sceptic but he went further by accusing the UN of being involved in a scam.

Will Central Banks Abolish Cash?

cashBy Mark Nestmann

Cash has never been a popular asset with the totalitarian set. It’s difficult, if not impossible, to trace. Cash makes it possible to do business “off the books.”

For decades, with the US leading the effort, governments have engaged in a War on Cash. The original justification for this war was to fight racketeering. The War on Cash morphed into the War on Drugs, then the War on Money Laundering, and subsequently, the War on Terror.

But now, central banks and their lackey governments have a new rationale for the War on Cash: the very existence of cash makes it more difficult to enforce negative interest rates. That’s a big deal, because nearly $3 trillion worth of bonds with negative interest rates have already been issued. Incredible as it may seem, investors actually pay financially insolvent governments for the privilege of buying their bonds. Negative interest rates punish banks that fail to make loans but instead maintain reserves at a central bank. And of course, they punish savers seeking a positive return on their investment.

The European Central Bank has had negative interest rates in effect since June 2014. These rates apply to the “deposit facility rate,” which is the rate on “excess reserves” banks maintain at the ECB. Currently, that rate is -0.2%. If you’re a bank in the eurozone, your “reserves” gradually dwindle in value if you don’t lend them out. For instance, after one year at a -0.2% rate, €1 million of your reserves would only be worth €998,000.

The Danish and Swiss national banks have gone even further, with negative interest rates of -0.75%. After a year, 1 million Danish krone or Swiss francs would be worth only DKK/CHF992,500, respectively.

This policy isn’t reserved just for banks. I hold a position of Swiss francs at a domestic brokerage house. A few weeks ago, I was informed that money market holdings over CHF100,000 would now be subject to negative interest rates. I suspect this policy will gradually percolate into money market accounts for all currencies sporting negative interest rates.

Vaccine industry has suppressed and intimidated all but four reporters in the entire country

Autism-Words-Vaccine-Syringe-Needle(NaturalNews) Noted vaccine choice advocate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., gave a speech recently at the New Jersey state capitol in Trenton in which he focused primarily on the corruption, collusion and malfeasance regarding vaccine safety at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

As noted by Anne Dachel of Age of Autism, a news website covering the spread of the disability, RFK also discussed the media’s role in covering up the scandalous link between some vaccines and the occurrence of autism, which is routinely portrayed in the press as “old science” or a link that has been “soundly disproven.”

But, as she reported in a story regarding RFK’s discussion, the reaction of the assembled press was both predictable and depressing:

He focused on the corruption, collusion and malfeasance at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It was a scathing report about the ethics of the agency in charge of vaccine safety.

The second half of his 45 minute talk was a chance for reporters to question Kennedy about his claims. Incredibly, during the question and answer session not a single reporter asked about the scandalous charges Kennedy made about top U.S. health officials. Most of them asked about exemptions and herd immunity. It was like they weren’t even in the room.
