(NaturalHealth365) Across the country, we are beginning to see the rise of so-called “Smart Cities.” The city of the future may include 5G wireless antennas on most utility poles, self-driving vehicles whisking us from place to place, and “Internet of Things” sensors everywhere. But, most people remain uninformed about the dangers of this new technology and the increase in EMF pollution.

We are told that the wireless smart city will bring us into a sustainable future of convenience and ease. However, cracks are appearing in this dystopian vision. At the very time that the smart city is being pushed upon us, our best science now shows how detrimental wireless technology is to our health.

EMF warning: Should we move forward with smart cities if they are ultimately harmful to our health?

In this article, you will learn about the key elements of the smart city and understand the steps to protect your family and community from the health risks of these developing technologies.

What Is 5G?

5G stands for “5th generation” wireless technology. Our devices currently run on 3G and 4G technology, which utilize a limited range of the microwave spectrum. 5G will greatly expand the amount of spectrum used and include high gigahertz range frequencies that have never been used before in consumer devices.

These high frequencies, between 14 GHz and 73 GHz, do not travel as far or penetrate building as easily. However, they will allow for incredibly fast download speeds. This will enable 5G devices to download a movie in a few seconds and will allow companies like AT&T to deliver HBO programs wirelessly, rather than via a cable.

The biggest issue with 5G is that wireless antennas will be placed on most light and utility poles within our neighborhoods. It is estimated that the 5G network will require each of the four major wireless carriers to install one million new base stations. To show you the scale of this expansion, AT&T currently has approximately 70,000 cell sites. This will exponentially increase the amount of microwave radiation in our communities, creating an electromagnetic environment unlike anything humans have ever experienced.

The wireless industry is planning YOUR future in a ‘secret’ way

Our current laws actually make the rollout of the 5G network difficult for the wireless companies. This is why the industry is now pressing for weaker regulations. Senator John Thune has recently introduced SB 19, which is called the Mobil Now Act.

SB 19 would take away any remaining ability that communities have to regulate the placement of cellular antennas. It would allow a wireless company to put a 5G antenna right outside your bedroom window. Call your Senator today and ask them to put a hold on this bill so that you have more say in your health going forward.

It’s official: Vitamin C interferes with cancer stem cell metabolism

(NaturalHealth365) Increasingly, researchers are discovering the role played by cancer stem cells in the growth and spread of the disease. In groundbreaking new research, vitamin C showed its ability to target cancer stem cells and stop their growth – preventing the recurrence of tumors.

Although mainstream medicine has been slow to accept the cancer-fighting properties of vitamin C, the exciting results of this study could help to change that.

It’s official: Vitamin C interferes with cancer stem cell metabolism

In a newly-published study conducted at the University of Salford in Manchester, vitamin C demonstrated its power to stop tumors in their tracks by interfering with cancer stem cell metabolism – suppressing their ability to process energy for survival and growth.

Cancer stem cells are responsible for triggering tumor recurrence, and promoting their growth and metastasis. Researchers believe that cancer stem cells give cancer its ability to resist chemotherapy and radiation – the reason for treatment failure in advanced cancer patients.

The study, helmed by researchers Michael P. Lisanti and Gloria Bonucelli, was published last month in Oncotarget, a peer-reviewed journal. Peer-reviewed studies are considered the gold standard of scientific research.

The study was the first to explore the effects of vitamin C on cancer stem cells – and provided the first evidence that vitamin C, in the form of ascorbic acid, can target and kill them.

In a side-by-side comparison of seven different substances, vitamin C even outperformed an experimental cancer drug.

Medical bombshell: Chemotherapy found to spread cancer (from Albert Einstein Coll of Med)

(Natural News) New research conducted at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University has found that chemotherapy spreads cancer throughout the body, causing a sharp increase in cancer cells circulating throughout the body (including the lungs).

A summary of the study reports that “the authors discovered that several types of chemotherapy can increase the amounts of TMEM complexes and circulating tumor cells in the bloodstream.” It concludes that “chemotherapy, despite decreasing tumor size, increases the risk of metastatic dissemination.”

Chemotherapy spreads cancer, generating repeat business for the for-profit cancer industry

In other words, even though chemotherapy “shrinks tumors,” it’s also spreading

Led by Dr. George Karagiannis, the research focused on chemotherapy treatment of breast cancer, but further studies plan to see how chemotherapy might also spread cancers of other tissues, too. The research was published in Science Translational Medicine and is entitled Neoadjuvant chemotherapy induces breast cancer metastasis through a TMEM-mediated mechanism

cancer throughout the body, functioning as a kind of activation for future cancer (that just so happens to generate repeat business for the cancer industry, of course).

Magnesium deficiency linked to increased risk of pancreatic cancer

(NaturalHealth365) Every day, 145 Americans receive the devastating news that they have pancreatic cancer. Aggressive and fast-growing, pancreatic cancer may avoid detection until it is advanced – and it carries a notoriously poor prognosis for survival.

Current research is focused around finding an effective method of prevention – and it turns out that a common, non-toxic and inexpensive mineral may be the key.

WARNING: Magnesium deficiency is widespread

Magnesium is a naturally-occurring mineral and electrolyte that is essential for over 300 different  cellular reactions and metabolic processes. It also works in concert with calcium to build bones, and helps to detoxify heavy metals in the body. Although it is not classified as an antioxidant, magnesium has potent antioxidant effects, including the ability to reduce disease-causing oxidative stress and inflammation.

Unsurprisingly, low levels of this indispensable mineral can leave you susceptible to serious illnesses. Magnesium deficiency is widespread, with some natural health experts estimating that it exists in up to 80 percent of the U.S. population.

In a review by the International Society for the Development of Research on Magnesium, researchers found that magnesium deficiency can lead to the initiation, growth and spread of cancer – and also interfere with cancer treatment.  Some research suggests that low magnesium causes an undesirable increase in the permeability of cells – which makes it easier for cancer to invade.

The good news: maintaining optimal levels of magnesium provides an impressive amount of protection against life-threatening diseases, including pancreatic cancer.

Broccoli sprout extract can replace toxic metformin drugs in type-2 diabetes; sulforaphane found to control blood sugar levels

(Natural News) The American Diabetes Association reports that around 10 percent of the U.S. population has diabetes, most of whom have lifestyle-related type 2 diabetes. Around 1.4 million new diabetes diagnoses are made each year, and it remains the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S. This is also an incredibly expensive disease, costing the country over $245 billion each year in direct medical costs and lost productivity.

Conventional diabetes treatment involves drugs to control glucose levels like metformin, but as many as one-in-seven patients cannot tolerate this type of medication because of its effects on the kidneys. A new study published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science offers a natural alternative for these patients – and, quite frankly, a better alternative for all type 2 diabetes patients who want to avoid the toxic side effects of chemical drugs.

Researchers began their study by constructing a signature for type 2 diabetes based on 50 different genes. They then used expression datasets to screen 3,852 compounds to find one that could potentially reverse disease. Their most promising lead was the compound sulforaphane, which is found in cruciferous veggies like broccoli. In cultured liver cells, sulforaphane reduced glucose (sugar) production and “liver gene expression away from a diseased state in diabetic rats,” according to Science Daily.

This is important because the body uses sugar as fuel for the cells, and the hormone insulin allows this sugar to enter the cells. In people with type 2 diabetes, the body either doesn’t produce sufficient insulin or has become resistant to its effects. This results in a build-up of glucose in the body, eventually damaging the eyes, kidneys, heart and nerves.

Short Film Reveals the Lunacy of Water Fluoridation (from a MD)

Story at-a-glance

  • Research links fluoridated water consumption to endocrine dysfunction, hypothyroidism, ADHD, and reduced IQ
  • Many water authorities do not use pharmaceutical grade fluoride; they use hydrofluosilicic acid — a toxic waste product of the fertilizer industry that is frequently contaminated with heavy metals and other toxins
  • 97 percent of Western European countries do not fluoridate, and data show non-fluoridating countries have seen the exact same reduction in dental cavities as fluoridated areas

By Dr. Mercola

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has hailed water fluoridation as one of the top 10 public health achievements of the 20th century. Beginning in 1945, it was claimed that adding fluoride to drinking water was a safe and effective way to improve people’s dental health. Over the decades, many bought into this hook, line and sinker, despite all the evidence to the contrary. The featured film, “Our Daily Dose,” reviews some of this evidence. As noted in the film’s synopsis:

“Filmmaker Jeremy Seifert lays out the dangers of water fluoridation informatively and creatively, highlighting the most current research and interviewing top-tier doctors, activists, and attorneys close to the issue. Through thoughtful examination of old beliefs and new science, the film alerts us to the health threat present in the water and beverages we rely on every day.”

7 Steps To Help Reverse Type-2 Diabetes So You Never Have To Take Insulin Or Medication Again (from a MD)

Before the article, some brief stats regarding diabetes in NZ:

Prevalence of diabetes in NZ

At the end of December 2013, there were 243,125 individuals enrolled with a primary health organisation with either type 1 or 2 diabetes in New Zealand. [11]   Using district health board population estimates as at 30 June 2013, this represents approximately 5.4% of the estimated resident population. [12]

The Ministry of Health has estimated that there are approximately 100,000 people who have diabetes in New Zealand but have not yet been diagnosed. [13]

The prevalence of diabetes in New Zealand is increasing. The high frequency of prediabetes suggests diabetes is likely to become more common, particularly in high risk groups. Implementation of effective evidence-based diabetes prevention strategies are required to reduce the increasing health and economic costs of the diabetes epidemic.  NZ Medical Journal

7 Steps To Help Reverse Type-2 Diabetes

From theheartysoul.com

What disease affects EVERY other American and one in four kids? Type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes. Type 2 diabetes in America has tripled since the 1980s, and researchers estimate one in three Americans will have diabetes by mid-century. More than one-third of American adults are obese. [1]

And one in three Medicare dollars is spent on diabetes making it the biggest driver of our federal debt. Sadly, these numbers continue to increase. Overall, it’s not a pretty picture, and experts predict things will only become worse.

I use the term “diabesity” to describe the continuum of health problems ranging from mild insulin resistance and overweight to obesity and diabetes. Diabesity is the underlying cause of most heart disease, cancer, and premature death in the world.

From myeclinik.com

If you were born and raised in urban centers and find gardening a herculean task, understand that you don’t need to break your back at all, if you know what nature wants, and how it works for you. Understanding how Nature works will definitely reduce the effort of producing good food for one’s table.

When watching the documentary below, just replace “god” with Nature, and you’ll be okay. Just focus on the method and principles that you need to know.

The featured documentary, “Back to Eden,” reveals a simple organic gardening method that not only can transform your personal garden, but may even be part of the food solution needed on a global scale.

It is estimated that even if only 10% of the global population will do natural methods of gardening, the combined yield would be enough to feed those who have no direct access to farms. Not to mention the effect on the prices of organic foods when there’s abundance of them in the market.

Malignant brain tumors most common cause of cancer deaths in adolescents and young adults

This article is just giving us statistics regarding brain tumors. However those of you who have read the research widely will know that any link to emf exposure from mobile phones is a controversial issue that is pretty much played down by the industries. It might make a dent in profits. Apple does tell us in their (very) fine print to hold our phones 5/8 inch from our bodies. Dr Mercola also writes of heavy mobile phone use quadrupling our risk of brain cancer. Watch the following 2 minute clip on topic by a medical doctor. Isn’t it worth researching? There’s enough evidence of risk to do so. And there are ways to protect yourself without throwing away your phone. I first pricked my ears up at this topic when I read a conversation saying brain surgeons could tell what side of your head you held your phone. Check out our EMF pages and particularly the wi-cancer website, an excellent resource.

Malignant brain tumors most common cause of cancer deaths in adolescents and young adults

American Brain Tumor Association funds first comprehensive study of 15-39 year-old population

AMERICAN BRAIN TUMOR ASSOCIATION

Chicago, Ill., Feb. 24, 2016 – A new report published in the journal Neuro-Oncology and funded by the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) finds that malignant brain tumors are the most common cause of cancer-related deaths in adolescents and young adults aged 15-39 and the most common cancer occurring among 15-19 year olds.

The 50-page report, which utilized data from the Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (CBTRUS) from 2008-2012, is the first in-depth statistical analysis of brain and central nervous system (CNS) tumors in adolescents and young adults (AYA). Statistics are provided on tumor type, tumor location and age group (15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34 and 35-39) for both malignant and non-malignant brain and CNS tumors.

“When analyzing data in 5-year age increments, researchers discovered that the adolescent and young adult population is not one group but rather several distinct groups that are impacted by very different tumor types as they move into adulthood,” said Elizabeth Wilson, president and CEO of the American Brain Tumor Association.

“For these individuals — who are finishing school, pursuing their careers and starting and raising young families — a brain tumor diagnosis is especially cruel and disruptive,” added Wilson. “This report enables us for the first time to zero-in on the types of tumors occurring at key intervals over a 25-year time span to help guide critical research investments and strategies for living with a brain tumor that reflect the patient’s unique needs.”

Heavy Cell Phone Use Can Quadruple Your Risk of Deadly Brain Cancer

97% of all Terminal Cancer Patients Previously Had This Dental Procedure

From getcancercure.com

Do you have a chronic degenerative disease? If so, have you been told, “It’s all in your head?” Well, that might not be that far from the truth… the root cause of your illness may be in your mouth. There is a common dental procedure that nearly every dentist will tell you is completely safe, despite the fact that scientists have been warning of its dangers for more than 100 years. Every day in the United States alone, 41,000 of these dental procedures are performed on patients who believe they are safely and permanently fixing their problem.

What is this dental procedure?

Root-canaled teeth are essentially “dead” teeth that can become silent incubators for highly toxic anaerobic bacteria that can, under certain conditions, make their way into your bloodstream to cause a number of serious medical conditions—many not appearing until decades later.

Most of these toxic teeth feel and look fine for many years, which make their role in systemic disease even harder to trace back.

Dr. Robert Jones, a researcher of therelationship between root canals and breast cancer, found an extremely high correlation between root canals and breast cancer. He claims to have found the following correlations in a five-year study of 300 breast cancer cases:

-93 PERCENT OF WOMEN WITH BREAST CANCER HAD ROOT CANALS
-7 PERCENT HAD OTHER ORAL PATHOLOGY
-TUMORS, IN THE MAJORITY OF CASES, OCCURRED ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE BODY AS THE ROOT CANAL(S) OR OTHER ORAL PATHOLOGY

Sadly, the vast majority of dentists are oblivious to the serious potential health risks they are exposing their patients to, risks that persist for the rest of their patients’ lives. The American Dental Association claims root canals have been proven safe, but they have NO published data or actual research to substantiate this claim.

Fortunately, I had some early mentors like Dr. Tom Stone and Dr. Douglas Cook, who educated me on this issue nearly 20 years ago. Were it not for a brilliant pioneering dentist who, more than a century ago, made the connection between root-canaled teeth and disease, this underlying cause of disease may have remained hidden to this day. The dentist’s name was Weston Price — regarded by many as the greatest dentist of all time.
