The chemicalisation of our society and the chemicalisation of New Zealand, our food, our bodies
Meriel Watts from Waiheke Island, trained in agricultural science before becoming a natural health practitioner and treating people poisoned by roadside sprays. She also co-ordinates the New Zealand branch of Pesticide Action Network, providing technical information to international organisations such as the United Nations.
Listen to one of only two full time, totally dedicated ‘volunteer’ activists against the chemical spraying of the thousands of kilometers of Auckland’s suburban streets and footpaths with dangerous herbicides.
This is another battle for the health of Auckland’s families as well as the ecology of the beaches, harbours and marine life, where the chemicals run off after rain.
Stopping the reintroduction of chemical weed management on roadsides and streets throughout the greater Auckland Council area, when for the last 14 years Auckland and the North Shore had a very successful non-chemical management system, and now the focus is getting Auckland Council region back onto non-chemical roadside weed management.
To get chlorpyrifos an insecticide banned in NZ where it is still used in agriculture, horticulture, on livestock and on roses, because prenatal exposures to even low levels interferes with brain development leaving children with neurological and behavioural issues that last a lifetime – like reduced IQ, ADHD, Autism.

(Natural News) Although research is still in progress, there is currently no single drug or combination of drugs that can effectively treat the deadliest form of skin cancer known as melanoma. Fortunately, a recent study has shown that vitamin B3, or niacin, may play an important role in the prevention and progression of the disease.
In a review of studies published in the journal Photodermatology, Photoimmunology and Photomedicine, researchers at the University of Sydney concluded that the active form of vitamin B3 known as nicotinamide may prevent melanoma. In addition, they found that nicotinamide, also known as niacinamide, enhances DNA repair in response to UV (ultraviolet) exposure. Melanoma starts in the melanocytes, the skin cells that produce melanin, the protective pigment. Exposure to UV radiation from sunlight is a known risk factor for melanoma as it damages cell DNA.
Diona Damian, a co-author of the study, reported that nicotinamide re-fill energy stores of keratinocytes, or epidermal skin cells, reduced by sun exposure. This enables them to repair DNA damage more efficiently. Moreover, nicotinamide lessens inflammation, which is another risk factor for cancer. It does this by inhibiting synthesis of inflammatory substances, such as interleukin-6 and tumor necrosis factor alpha. Furthermore, vitamin B3 helps lessen the immune suppressive effects of sunlight on skin.
Kiwis love this product. They spray it everywhere, on their sections, garden edges, berms, parks, schools, their gardens even ready for new planting. And farmers, it’s whole fields since the Ag text books recommend it. Even though it’s produced large tumours in lab rats (independent research). Please read our Glyphosate pages on all of the above. You will be surprised. Farmers were told it was ‘safe as houses’ virtually.
Monsanto’s controversial past combines some of the most toxic products ever sold with misleading reports, pressure tactics, collusion, and attempted corruption. They now race to genetically engineer (and patent) the world’s food supply, which profoundly threatens our health, environment, and economy. Combining secret documents with first-hand accounts by victims, scientists, and politicians, this widely praised film exposes why Monsanto has become the world’s poster child for malignant corporate influence in government and technology.
I was only made aware of this today. I’ve seen it nowhere. This is typical of the powers that be as they will be expecting this to slip right under the radar while folk all stare at their iphones. No offense intended but seriously, folk are simply not aware of the dangers. I will post some links below to our recent articles on topic. This will be sold to you on ‘fast download’ yay…. but the health risks will be (& have been) played down.
Read the info & if you can, do a submission, it can be done online & the site below has all the info…
Stop Smart Meters NZ website has just been updated with a new post on a consultation on 5G. The consultation deadline date is 5 PM on Monday 30 April 2018.
The 5G system proposed for NZ would involve a doubling of the already high level of cellular phone infrastructure in urban areas followed by more wireless “small cell” transmitters about 250 metres apart or less.
If you would not be happy to have more wireless infrastructure in your neighbourhood, please take the time to write a 5 minute submission.

With so many injuries and with the targeting of 9 year olds both boys and girls, you need to research this thoroughly for yourselves…
Since Gardasil’s introduction in 2006, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has received more than 20,000 reports of adverse side effects reportedly related to Gardasil. These reports include serious adverse side effects including Guilliane Barre, lupus, seizures, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis, among others. There also have been 92 reported deaths among girls who received the Gardasil vaccine…. TheTruthAboutGardasil.com
A CDC report links cervical cancer vaccine, Gardasil, to incidents of fainting, blood clots, stroke and cardiac arrest.
(NaturalHealth365) Roundup is a weed killer that’s showing up in our food supply; contaminating the waterways and the air we breathe. Yet, the biotech industry – with companies like Monsanto and Dow – continue to tell us, ‘we have nothing to worry about’ – in terms of all the agricultural ingredients used today.
So, what’s the truth?
Shocking truths exposed about Roundup and our current food production techniques
Just to be clear: Roundup is the most widely used herbicide in all of human history, and while farmers and homeowners alike use it daily, this highly-toxic product carries a wide range of health hazards – which are being systematically overlooked (and ignored) by government health agencies.
Today, on the NaturalHealth365 Podcast, I’ll introduce you to an investigative journalist that will blow your mind about what the agrichemical industry is doing to human health and our environment.
The level of marketing deception and fraud is staggering!

How many people ask their MD questions about chemotherapy? Have you ever wondered how such a toxic substance (so toxic that those who administer it must wear gowns and gloves) became the “standard of care” for cancer? The truth of its origin is as far away from a scientific laboratory as one could imagine!
In August of 1943, President Roosevelt approved the shipment of chemical munitions containing mustard gas to the Mediterranean theater. Two thousand mustard bombs were loaded onto the USS John Harvey. The ship was waiting to unload in Bari, Italy when German planes attacked on December 2, 1943. The Geneva Protocol of 1925 prohibited the use of chemical and biological weapons. The Allies didn’t trust the Germans and both sides were secretly stockpiling mustard gas to prepare for retaliation.
Imagine the Allies surprise when the Luftwaffe (believed to be stretched too thin to attack) blew up the USS John Harvey, releasing 2000 mustard gas bombs (120,000 pounds) into the air and the bay, indiscriminately killing soldiers and civilians. Hundreds of sailors who had jumped into the water to escape the sinking ship were covered with an oily, garlic smelling residue that blistered and burned their skin and caused many to lose their eyesight. The Top Brass knew exactly what was causing the symptoms. But they had been ordered to keep quiet.
Lt. Colonel Stewart Francis Alexander was flown to the scene after a short briefing. Alexander was trained to treat the effects of chemical warfare. He instantly recognized the symptoms: garlic-like odor, burning skin, and blindness. It had to be mustard gas. Alexander was able to begin treatment immediately and saved many people. However, when he briefed the commanders, he was told to treat the patients and keep his mouth shut. It was clear to him it was a cover-up. No one wanted the Luftwaffe to know they had blown up a ship filled with mustard gas. Though it would be years before the truth came out, Alexander took tissue samples back to the U.S. to be analyzed immediately.
WHILE TRAWLING THROUGH scientific studies on cancer research in 2015, Jennifer Byrne noticed something strange. One after another, papers were describing strikingly similar experiments involving a particular gene associated with breast cancer and childhood leukemia. Byrne, a professor of molecular oncology at The University of Sydney, recognized the gene immediately because she was part of a team that cloned it two decades earlier.
The problem, she realized upon closer inspection, was that the papers, all of them from China, referred to the wrong nucleotide sequence — a unique series of letters that describes the makeup of a given piece of DNA — being used to deactivate the gene and observe the resulting effects in cancer cells. Either the experiments weren’t examining what they claimed, or they hadn’t been done as described.
“The sequence was being described as one thing, but was sometimes used as if it were something different,” Byrne says. “It’s a bit like applying the same barcode to different items in a supermarket, so you get charged for a pair of shoes when you are actually buying a bag of lettuce.”
What’s worse, each dubious paper contained the seeds of potentially more bad research.
