The well known carcinogen chlorine found in swimming pools is also in your drinking water and some of the foods you eat

From Dr Mercola

Toxic Byproducts Created by Adding Chlorine to Water, Food

Most people know there’s chlorine in a swimming pool because you can usually smell it, but this very well-known carcinogen is also in your drinking water and some of the foods you eat.

In the U.S., chlorine is used as a method of disinfecting drinking water, but new research shows this process creates toxic byproducts, according to Futurity.

While chlorine has been used worldwide to save people’s lives from diseases such as typhoid and cholera, questions are being raised about the amount of chlorine that is being used to disinfect drinking water, according to the report.

Phenols, chemical compounds that occur naturally in the environment and are abundant in personal care products and pharmaceuticals, are commonly found in drinking water and when those phenols mix with chlorine, the process creates a large number of byproducts.

Alternative methods that can be used to disinfect drinking water include UV treatment, the use of ozone and simple filtration.

Highly toxic disinfection byproducts (DBPs) form from reactions between pool disinfectants like chlorine and organic matter, including hair, skin, sweat, dirt and … urine. Don’t wrinkle your nose in disgust too fast — 1 in 5  Americans admit they have peed in a pool and, among Olympic swimmers, one former U.S. National team member said nearly 100% of competitive swimmers pee in the pool regularly.

It’s not the urine that is the problem since urine is virtually sterile when it leaves your body, so it doesn’t pose the risk of causing illness the way fecal matter in a pool does. It’s what happens when urine mixes with pool chemicals, including chlorine, that is causing concern.

Studies show that urination in a chlorinated pool creates cyanogen chloride (CNCl), which is classified as a chemical warfare agent, and trichloramine (NCl3), which have been linked to cancer and lung damage.

Chlorine is lurking in some places you’d never suspect, including those cute little cocktail or “baby” carrots you buy at the supermarket.

Emails show Monsanto orchestrated GOP effort to intimidate cancer researchers

Kiwis still love this stuff (Roundup) and anyway it’s in other concoctions also on your supermarket shelves. As per usual they’re all either fast asleep, don’t care or in collusion with the govt/corporation that’s truly in bed with agrichem (IMO anyway). I had a convo recently with a worker at one of the big outlets that sell glyphosate ‘enriched’ creations for your garden edges etc who told me confidently ‘they’ (whoever they are) found it only affected those who worked with it all the time. All good for everybody else then by that calculation I expect. Councils here particularly love it. Try and take them on to dispense with it & you’ll get a glazed look whilst you reel off the independent science, then it’s – yawn – ‘next please’.  (I tried it, you’re up against bought councils & the old boys’ club of farmers).  The header image of the rats is a screen shot from Prof Seralini’s lab experiment … you can watch that at this link in case you still think glyphosate in Roundup is safe. And/or read further on our glyphosate pages. EWR

From theintercept.com

IN 2015, the World Health Organization’s cancer research arm, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, classified glyphosate, an active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, as a “probable carcinogen,” setting off a global debate about the world’s most popular weedkiller.

Over the last four years, Republicans in Congress have excoriated and pushed to defund the IARC, casting their defense of the chemical as a quest on behalf of small American farmers. Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Okla., has written that his outrage over the cancer research is on behalf of the “farmers and food manufacturers who rely on traditional farming methods to produce the food that fuels America — and the world.”

But according to a recent trove of documents, the ongoing political assault on the IARC has been scripted in part by Monsanto, the St. Louis-based chemical and seed conglomerate that produces Roundup and Roundup-resistant crops.

Roundup has been cash cow for the company since the 1970s, fueling billions of dollars in annual profits. Its use has skyrocketed in recent decades since the company developed genetically modified corn and other crops that are resistant to it; it is now the world’s leading herbicide.

A growing number of individuals say that Monsanto failed to warn consumers of the dangers of using Roundup and had marketed the chemical spray as harmless to humans, while internally recommending that its own employees use gloves and protective gear. Critics say that the Roundup formula used in the U.S. also contains a surfactant that makes the herbicide far more toxic than the variation of the spray sold in the European market.

Monsanto, which merged with German multinational pharmaceutical company Bayer AG last year, is facing as many as 11,000 cases relating to glyphosate. Last year, Dewayne Johnson, a former groundskeeper now dying of cancer, was the first to win his jury trial in San Francisco state court against Monsanto, alleging that years of using Roundup contributed to his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Johnson was awarded $289 million by a jury, though a judge later reduced the amount to $78 million. Another plaintiff, Edwin Hardeman, also alleged that he spent decades spraying the glyphosate-based weedkiller with little to no protective gear and developed the same blood cancer, won a similar case in federal court this year.

Cell phone tower shut down at elementary school after eight kids are diagnosed with cancer in ‘mysterious’ cluster

“There is scant evidence that cell phone towers pose a real risk to humans”
Sprint, which owns the tower, has shut it down despite insisting the radio frequency levels are 100 times below the federal limit”

SURE!

Do watch Josh del Sol’s ‘Take Back Your Power’ doco. He explains how the industry levels are set. Like the 1080 crowd in NZ these corporations know exactly how to not find things in their testing and research. Ask the many scientists (also in the doco) whose services are not required if they find the ‘wrong’ results. EWR

From dailymail.co.uk

  • The affected students at Weston Elementary School in Ripon are all under the age of 10
  • They each have different types of cancer: brain, kidney, liver and lymphoma 
  • There is scant evidence that cell phone towers pose a real risk to humans
  • But even skeptics say the number of cases in this cluster is unusual
  • Sprint, which owns the tower, has shut it down despite insisting the radio frequency levels are 100 times below the federal limit
  • A private investigator for the patients’ moms found the levels were higher than reported

Monica Ferrulli, who son Mason was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2016, told CBS: ‘It is classified as a possible carcinogen.

‘That tells us that there is some evidence out there.

‘We’re not naive to the fact that there could be other components out there – other environmental influences… but the bottom line that we feel in regards to this tower is it doesn’t belong there… if there’s any indications that its unsafe.’

Why is NZ’s Min of Health ‘too busy’ to meet with a visiting 5G world expert (WHO/IARC) who helped classify 5G as a Class 2B CARCINOGEN? (Sue Grey Lawyer)

Johnson & Johnson accused of hiding the asbestos in its baby powder for decades

Oh how the corporations care about you & your babies. Not! …

Johnson & Johnson has long been the undisputed leader in baby product sales and has always tried to portray itself as a gentle, caring company. But a startling new report by Reuters suggests otherwise. The report indicates that small amounts of asbestos have been lurking in some of the company’s talc — the substance that makes baby powder powdery — going back to the 1970s. The company allegedly didn’t openly communicate results, and at times purposely obfuscated them, to both consumers and the Food and Drug Administration.

The information Reuters examined came to light this past summer. Johnson & Johnson was sued by 22 women who claimed the company’s baby powder caused their ovarian cancer, resulting in a $4.7 billion verdict against the company. As a result, old company documents revealing the deception were made public. On Friday, this news tanked the company’s stock, which dropped 11 percent.

This is just the latest in a string of bad news for the company, which has already been battling lawsuits and terrible PR. In recent years, Johnson & Johnson faced some backlash after it was discovered that its iconic golden baby shampoo contained formaldehyde-releasing ingredients. The company removed those chemicals (although they’re probably safe in the amount present in personal care products) and even recently overhauled its entire baby range to compete with smaller brands that have embraced so-called “clean” ingredients.

Most recently, it’s been battling lawsuit after lawsuit alleging that talc use caused plaintiffs’ cancers. Notably, some evidence from a 2016 lawsuit suggested that in the early ’90s, the company targeted black and Hispanic women, who already used the powder in the genital area in higher numbers than white women, for “more aggressive marketing.” There are another 11,700 plaintiffs lined up for cases against J&J, all related to talc.

J&J has vehemently denied that its talc contained asbestos throughout these suits. The link between ovarian cancer and talc is not conclusive, and it’s still not clear that the tiny amounts of asbestos reported in J&J’s past testing were capable of causing the cancers in the past and current lawsuits. But what’s not in dispute is that asbestos is indeed a well-established carcinogen.

The negative publicity from the high legal payouts and Reuters’s seemingly damning evidence of sneaky behavior from the company in the past has brought the issue of hygiene product safety and consumer trust to the forefront. The FDA has very little regulatory power over hygiene products and cosmetics. But this news, which comes at a time when consumer demand is putting a lot of pressure on legislators, may finally mean that laws change.

Baby powder and asbestos

Talc is a natural mineral that is mined from the earth. It’s not totally certain that talc, and its end product talcum powder, is safe even in its purest form. In some cases, it can also be contaminated with asbestos. Asbestos — a category of fibrous minerals known to cause cancer — often shows up in the same mines where talc is, causing contamination.

Health organizations globally recognize asbestos as a carcinogen, causing cancers like mesothelioma and ovarian cancer, especially among people like miners, construction workers, and factory employees who have been exposed to it in large quantities. It gets fuzzier when trying to determine exactly how much exposure is required to actually cause cancer; no one knows how little is enough to set off the very complex chain of events that lead to the disease.

The Reuters report indicates that it’s probably “impossible” to completely purify mined talc and definitely impossible to test for asbestos thoroughly and conclusively in all commercial batches. This all adds up to a recipe for consumer concern — and lawsuits.

The Reuters article, by Lisa Girion, focuses heavily on reports and testing that J&J did in the 1970s on both its baby powder and its Shower to Shower product that was marketed to adults. It weaves a tale of how the company appears to have misled consumers and even the FDA after scientists figured out that asbestos was harmful and that it was showing up in talc samples. The FDA at one point in the ’70s was determining whether and how to regulate it. Girion writes:

J&J didn’t tell the FDA about a 1974 test by a professor at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire that turned up asbestos in talc from J&J. … Nor did the company tell the FDA about a 1975 report from its longtime lab that found particles identified as “asbestos fibers” in five of 17 samples of talc from the chief source mine for Baby Powder. “Some of them seem rather high,” the private lab wrote in its cover letter.

The Hidden Truth About Glyphosate Exposed, According to Undeniable Scientific Evidence

According to research scientist Stephanie Seneff, PhD, autism – which she calls “the most pressing disease in the world today” – could affect 50 percent of the children born in the United States by the year 2025. And, although many in the corporately-controlled scientific community roll their eyes at such a warning, Dr. Seneff believes that glyphosate has a lot to do with the problem.

To arrive at her chilling prediction, Dr. Seneff reports that she merely extended the exponential curve that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has employed in their research on rates of autism spectrum disorder over the past three decades. In 2014, the CDC released data on the prevalence of autism in the United States, reporting that the condition affects one in 68 children.

Dr. Seneff maintains that skyrocketing autism rates are linked with glyphosate, the toxic herbicide in Monsanto’s Roundup. In addition to autism, Dr. Seneff reports that glyphosate has been linked to a plethora of diseases and conditions, including ADHD, food allergies, asthma, leaky gut, IBD, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, heart disease and cancer. Glyphosate’s effect on human health, says Dr. Seneff, is nothing short of “devastating.”

Don’t miss the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, when Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Seneff expose the ugly truth about glyphosate – like you’ve never heard before and why the chemical companies desperately want to hide this truth.

Glyphosate is a “sleeper” toxin that is much more dangerous than originally believed

Glyphosate, which has been classified as a “probable carcinogen” by the World Health Organization (WHO), was originally developed as a heavy metal chelation agent, intended to clear pipes. It was then patented as an anti-microbial agent – before eventually being employed as a weed-killer.

Ever used Teflon cookware? … this is a ‘must see’ doco if you are concerned at all about your health, the lies of big industry & the big ‘C’

Don’t believe the lies of big industry when they tell you something is safe. Look for the proof it’s been tested. Unfortunately these behemoths are not required to test their products thoroughly in fact you are their guinea pigs. Like Monsanto (now morphed into Bayer) telling us glyphosate / Roundup are safe as dish liquid in the ’70s & in spite of all the independent research they still drag their feet & deny. DuPont in this instance after a 7 year long challenge to their fake science they were forced to withdraw the offending chemical in Teflon ware … however … not to be defeated they’ve produced another chemical, like its predecessor not fully tested & on it goes. These giants are like slippery two headed snakes, they will get you one way or another. Profits matter, you don’t. Watch also The Corporation doco. An expose of the lies we are fed. And as to the big ‘C’, MD Samuel Epstein wrote a book in the 1970s identifying the causes of cancer (The Politics of Cancer), ignored of course by big industry, and the medical industry, they prefer to have you think it’s genetic & above all mysterious ‘but they’re still working on it’ and asking for your donations to help them. It’s been a very long time & still no answers? Meanwhile the cancer industry is big business, each year (in the US) generating over $200 billion in revenue. All around it’s a win win for them, so long as you remain in the dark. EWR

Australian Communities Are Having Victories Against 5G Deployment. Get Involved Here

via thecrowhouse.com

Our mission is to ensure the environment and communities are safe from harmful electro-magnetic radiation.

Our objectives.
To realise our mission, we seek to:

1. Educate to empower the people in all areas of EMR – health, legal and environmental.
2. Educate the population on the possible harm from EMR, to facilitate informed consent.
3. Use legal means to ensure decision makers are personally liable for harm, fear and damage caused to people and the environment. Establish legal recourse for future situations arising from EMR that are currently unknown.
4. Support the seeking of financial compensation for health and economic consequences of EMR and EMR infrastructure.
5. Ensure that a correctly structured and continuously improving Australian Standard is in place that considers all independent peer reviewed scientific research relevant to EMR  research, and that governments and industry adopt world’s best practice which applies the precautionary principle.
6.  Ensure the country maintains radiation free zones where the community requires it to be so, or to do otherwise might cause human and environmental harm.
7.  A moratorium on 5G until the science is better understood and any risk of harm to environment and humans, be it possible/suspected or proven, be eliminated before 5G is established/rolled out.
8.  Research alternate technologies.

The Story So Far

In a nut shell, a Telco wants to place a tower in Wilson’s creek, Byron Shire.
What we uncovered (after we reached out to lawyers, doctors and scientists from around the world) is that at best Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) is a class 2B potential carcinogen (as listed by the World Health Organisation), and at worst a definite carcinogen and toxic to all life.
In fact EMR is a classified pollutant (electro-smog).
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics;
the #1 illness that kills children is brain cancer and the #1 cancer killer of adults under 40 is brain cancer (AIHW).
Medical professionals have identified health impacts from EMR exposure as the next global pandemic.
Many Australians suffer from EMR hypersensitivity symptoms (a recognised illness with identifiable biomarkers).
Government and industry are forcing telco towers upon communities that do not want them.
Liability caused from harm by EMR to environment, health and safety (EHS) is an uninsurable risk and understood to be a contributory factor in Telcos listing harm from EMR to EHS as a material risk (the highest possible risk) in their annual reports to shareholders…and yet consumers are not made overtly aware by industry,
Regulators take no action and neither does Government.   In fact they plan to blanket the planet in 5G microwave radiation (the Internet of Things).
According to the lawyers it is possible that community is being assaulted with a recognised pollutant and possible carcinogen on a 24 x 7 basis against their consent for convenience and profit.
There may be trade practices, criminal, terrorism and even constitutional (e.g. the Crown not protecting its subjects) implications.
Legal action to force change is on the horizon.
Once industry are required to overtly inform the general public of the possible harm and provide methods for the public to minimise that harm, people will have a choice – informed consent.
They will also seek refuge in many cases, so we also need to protect our black (light) spots.
We’ve seen change with Asbestos (banned) and the tobacco industry (informed consent)…change is possible when community unites.

Spark respond to 5G concerns

From thecontrail.com

Dear Andrew,

I obtained your email from the 5G Briefing put out by Spark in August this year. I was highly disappointed to see that Spark does not seem to have any concerns – or self investigation – regarding any potential health issues involved with EMF waves in general and in particular high frequency millimetre waves. Concerns over the dangers of EMF/EMR are – despite what our media, corporations and government departments will tell you – have been around for many years and there are many peer-reviewd and official studies showing the multiple dangers of this type of technology.
I could easily add many links here for you regarding these dangers and if you wish me to, I would be more than happy to provide these links. However, for now I would like to get your attention and – to be honest Andrew – see if you will give me the time of day to respond to my email, or just label me as a crank and shove me to the junk mail folder. Let me assure you, I am an intelligent and well researched person with nothing but concern for my family, my community and my country and I would like to think that Spark has similar values.
Unfortunately, it is obvious from the 5G Briefing that Spark is a nprofit-driven corporation that is rushing head-first to what will potentially be a health nightmare, does not do it’s own due-diligence and puts sales ahead of public safety. And for what reason?
Below is an email I sent to Spark regarding 5G. Continue scrolling to see their response. Discussion paper here

If you love spraying Roundup around your farm or property, you really should watch this documentary

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.

Microscopic plastic fibers are flowing out of taps around the world with no known procedures for filtering

Scientists say these microscopic fibers might originate in the everyday abrasion of clothes, upholstery, and carpets. They could reach your household tap by contaminating local water sources, or treatment and distribution systems. But no one knows, and no specific procedures yet exist for filtering or containing them.

It is everywhere: the most enduring, insidious, and intimate product in the world.

From the soles of your shoes to the contact lenses in your eyes, the phone in your pocket to the food in your refrigerator, the evidence is unmistakable: We are living in The Plastic Age.

Plastic frees us, improving daily life in almost uncountable ways.

13-million-tonnes-ocean-plastic-2010-2-537x358

And plastic imprisons us in waste and microscopic pollution.

Recent studies have shown the shocking extent of plastics in the world’s oceans and lakes. Orb Media followed with a new question: If microscopic plastic is in oceans, lakes, and rivers, is it in drinking water as well?

In the first public scientific study of its kind, we found previously unknown plastic contamination in the tap water of cities around the world.

Microscopic plastic fibers are flowing out of taps from New York to New Delhi, according to exclusive research by Orb and a researcher at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. From the halls of the U.S. Capitol to the shores of Lake Victoria in Uganda, women, children, men, and babies are consuming plastic with every glass of water.

More than 80 percent of the samples we collected on five continents tested positive for the presence of plastic fibers.

Microplastics — tiny plastic fibers and fragments — aren’t just choking the ocean; they have infested the world’s drinking water.

Why should you care? Microplastics have been shown to absorb toxic chemicals linked to cancer and other illnesses, and then release them when consumed by fish and mammals.

Scientists say these microscopic fibers might originate in the everyday abrasion of clothes, upholstery, and carpets. They could reach your household tap by contaminating local water sources, or treatment and distribution systems. But no one knows, and no specific procedures yet exist for filtering or containing them.

If plastic fibers are in your water, experts say they’re surely in your food as well — baby formula, pasta, soups, and sauces, whether from the kitchen or the grocery. Plastic fibers may leaven your pizza crust, and a forthcoming study says it’s likely in the craft beer you’ll drink to chase the pepperoni down.

California declares glyphosate a toxic cancer-causing chemical, effective July 7, 2017

This is very good news. Remember too if you are aware of the glyphosate in Roundup, that it’s in many other herbicides as well so check your labels. See our Glyphosate pages for more information and our presentation of the evidence against glyphosate to the Rangitikei District Council (all dismissed as mere extrapolation). Nevertheless the one thing you can do as regards council slathering it everywhere is go on the no spray register to prevent them spraying it on your property frontage. Do this at your council office. You can also enlighten folk as to its toxicity as most (like I once did) believe what the label says. Gone are the days friends. This product caused huge tumours in lab rats. Read the evidence for yourself. All on our pages.
EnvirowatchRangitikei

This is from NaturalHealth365

(NatualHealth365) In a win for consumer rights and safety, the OEHHA (California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment) has declared that glyphosate weed killer is a known, cancer-causing carcinogen. It will be added to the state’s Proposition 65 warning list.

Proposition 65, also known as “The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986,” was passed in order to protect California drinking water from toxic, cancer-causing substances and those known to cause birth defects.

Glyphosate designated “probably carcinogenic” by WHO in 2015

Glyphosate weed killer is sold under numerous brand names, but the most widely used is Roundup, manufactured by the Monsanto company. The state of California is using statute CAS #107-83-6 to change the designation of the weed killer, which they say has cancer as a known endpoint for some people who are exposed to it.

This designation is a blow to companies that use glyphosate in their products. Efforts to ban the substance have ramped up ever since the WHO (World Health Organization) designated it as “probably carcinogenic” in 2015.

As of July 7, California retailers must add cancer warning labels to all products containing glyphosate. However, cancer warnings will as yet not be required on foods and grocery items that have been sprayed with the cancer-causing herbicide.

NUTELLA Health Concerns Raised re Palm Oil Ingredient that May Cause Cancer

From The Sun

Could Nutella trigger cancer? Experts have warned a key ingredient in the spread could trigger the disease

But, in May the European Food Standards Agency, warned the product generates chemicals that are thought to cause cancer.

The oil, when heated at temperatures above 200°C generates more potentially carcinogenic contaminants than other vegetable oils.

But, the EFSA did not recommend consumers stop eating it, and said more research is needed to assess the level of risk.

Now, the makers of Nutella, Italian confectionery firm Ferrero, has launched an ad campaign to assure the public about the safety of the much-loved hazelnut and chocolate spread.

It comes as other food companies in Italy, where the firm are based, have chosen to boycott the ingredient.

A sp0kesman for Ferrero said the “health and safety of consumers is an absolute and first priority” for the firm.

There are indeed many health risks being reported here ((listen to Dr David Carpenter on those plus see the stopsmartmeters NZ site), ridiculously inflated power bills ($1K I’ve heard, read here about a Nelson woman’s experience) and fire risks. Most importantly watch an excellent expose on the whole issue – Josh del Sol’s ‘Take Back Your Power’. Very informative if you really want the facts. See what the corporations are hiding from you with their clever spin and outright lying. Josh exposes it all.

Chlorine, Cancer, and Heart Disease

liquid-1210614_1280

by Dr. Edward Group DC, NP, DACBN, DCBCN, DABFM

Adding chlorine to drinking water is a practice that began in the late 1800s, and by 1904 this was the standard in water treatment. For the most part, this process is still implemented today. Unfortunately, chlorine isn’t used because it’s the safest or most effective means of disinfection — it’s just the cheapest. In spite of all our technological advances, we essentially still pour bleach in our water before we drink it. The long-term effects of chlorinated drinking water have just recently being recognized. Past research has indicated it may be a contributor to cancer; however, there is no conclusive data to replicate these findings. [1]

History of Chlorine Danger

Dr. Joseph Price wrote a highly controversial book in the late sixties titled Coronaries/Cholesterol/Chlorine and concluded that the basic cause of atherosclerosis and resulting entities such as heart attacks and stroke, is chlorine. While the study abstract is not available online, if you read his book, Dr. Price reported using chickens as test subjects in one of his studies where two groups of several hundred birds were observed throughout their span to maturity. One group was given water with chlorine and the other without. The group raised with chlorine, when autopsied, supposedly showed some level of heart or circulatory disease in every specimen, yet the group without had no incidence of disease. The group with chlorine under winter conditions showed outward signs of poor circulation, shivering, drooped feathers, and a reduced level of activity. The group without chlorine grew faster, larger, and displayed vigorous health. It would be a common sense conclusion that if regular chlorinated tap water is not good enough for the chickens, then it probably is not good enough for us humans!

Chlorine Dangers Today

There is a lot of well-founded concern about chlorine. When chlorine is added to our water, it combines with other natural compounds to form Trihalomethanes (chlorination byproducts), or THMs. These chlorine byproducts trigger the production of free radicals in the body, causing cell damage, and are highly carcinogenic. The Environmental Defense Fund warns that, “Although concentrations of these carcinogens (THMs) are low, it is precisely these low levels that cancer scientists believe are responsible for the majority of human cancers in the United States.“

Chlorine is a pesticide and its sole purpose is to kill living organisms. When we consume water containing chlorine, it destroys cells and tissue inside our body. Dr. Robert Carlson, a highly respected University of Minnesota researcher whose work is sponsored by the Federal Environmental Protection Agency, sums it up, “the chlorine problem is similar to that of air pollution” and adds that “chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times!”

Censored from NZ Television – Ivon Watkins Dow’s release of deadly 245T from 1962-81 in New Plymouth

“Also disturbing are the birth defects documented by a local midwife, and the fact that Ivon Watkins Dow continued to manufacture 2-4-5-T in New Zealand until 1987, making us the last country in the world to manufacture the dangerous substance.”

Published on Apr 8, 2013

The TV 3 Exposé, initially broadcast then censored from NZ TV. A must see for any member of the public, this doco covers the exposure of the Paritutu and New Zealand community at large to the chemical 2-4-5-T, manufactured at Ivon Watkins Dow in New Plymouth between 1962-1981, and the disastrous effects it had on those exposed.


Further coverage was made by the Investigate magazine:

THE POISONING OF NEW ZEALAND

From Investigate

THE ‘ERIN BROKOVICH’-STYLE SCANDAL IN NEW ZEALAND’S BACKYARD

Outbreaks of rare diseases and tumours are appearing in clusters around New Zealand, close to chemical factories. Why doesn’t the Government want to investigate? Simon Jones discovers what the authorities don’t want you to know:

Walk down any street in New Plymouth and you will probably hear a mixture of coughing and spluttering. Look inside any school and there appears to be more special needs children than is the norm for a city the size of New Plymouth. It’s often been said that everyone knows someone with a serious disease, whether it be cancer or multiple sclerosis.

Bad luck? Possibly, but for the last 15 years a group of residents have turned scientists to uncover what they say is a national health scandal – and one which, despite the government and media’s persistent attempts to ignore, won’t go away.

They may sound like conspiracy theorists in overdrive – and there is little in the way of official evidence and health statistics to back up what they say. But here is the frightening thing: If, in this real-life game of Fact or Fiction?, only 10 percent of what the residents say is true, we have a huge health scandal on our hands – the magnitude and implications of which are unimaginable.

The story centres around one of the city’s major employers, the Ivon Watkins Dow Plant.

Since the early 1960s, and up until 1987, it manufactured the 2,4,5T herbicide – which contains the deadly dioxin also used to form Agent Orange – a weapon of huge destruction in the Vietnam War.

In New Zealand and around the world 2,4,5T is used to kill scrub, gorse and blackberry. In Vietnam, with concentrations of dioxin much higher, it had the same effect – to the extent where it devastated the country’s crops and caused major health problems amongst veterans, including cancer, multiple sclerosis, while creating learning difficulties amongst the vets’ children.

Dioxin disaster

TV3’s Melanie Reid has spent the last year investigating dioxin contamination from the herbicide 2-4-5-T, especially in the New Plymouth suburb of Paritutu, where Ivon Watkins Dow manufactured the chemical for more than 20 years. The result, a 90-min documentary called Let us Spray went to air last night. If you missed it, you can watch it online here. (Video displayed above).

The documentary is extremely disturbing. Most notably, a forensic accountant hired by TV3 went through an earlier Ministry of Health report into dioxin contamination in New Plymouth and found that ill-defined parameters, muddled reporting of facts and inconsistencies in drawing conclusions masked the true extent of the dioxin contamination problem.  READ MORE

“Wireless radiation has been demonstrated in thousands of scientific studies to gravely endanger all living things”

Cell phone masts are being placed increasingly closer to and even within residential areas

If you’ve ever asked yourself, why all the fuss abut wifi and other things related, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to get to the bottom of the question.  Like many environmental topics today, we often start out with some incident, article or case history that grabs our attention. I was once one of those … busy with a job and family … too busy to pay attention until I fell ill. This is how many begin investigating our environment. My first journey of discovery was down the track of GE crops … then other things. I found in fact there are many issues that are impacting on our health. And electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) is one of them.

Smart Meters are exposing us to the little known risks to our health

On the one hand however we have Pharmaceutical companies and the Medical fraternity telling us we need more time and money to research the causes of what is unarguably the biggest plague of our era … cancer … killing one in every three and in some places two on the planet. On the other hand we have independent scientists telling us we know the causes, let’s eliminate them. Quite frankly, we are in a war. A war for our minds. The thing is, right now, the information is available to us … it is out there if you care to look … with a mind that is open to truth. With increasing corporate control over that information however, our freedom to tap into it is under threat. If you care to research this topic, here is a website I discovered recently  that provides an excellent overview http://www.wi-cancer.info/dead_peasants.aspx

Quote: “Wireless communications technology is violent technology.  It saturates the environment with extremely toxic, high-frequency RF/microwave radiation, designated by the World Health Organization as a Group 2B carcinogen…”

“Wireless radiation has been demonstrated in thousands of scientific studies to gravely endanger all living things: people, animals, plants and pollinating insects…”

“Numerous epidemiological studies reveal that people living and working within 1600 feet of RF/microwave antennas eventually suffer serious health problems…”

“…eight of the ten studies reported increased prevalence of adverse neurobehavioral symptoms or cancer in populations living at distances less than 500 meters from base stations….None of the studies reported exposures above accepted international guidelines, suggesting that current guidelines may be inadequate in protecting the health of human populations…”

“Unfortunately, everyone in the nation now lives, works and/or travels within 500 meters of Wi-antennas. In 1996, the Wi-radiation industry bought itself a federal law which prohibits US citizens from objecting, on the basis of environmental and health concerns, to the siting of RF/microwave antennas near inhabited buildings…”

” Cancer, diabetes, heart disease, chronic fatigue and dementia are epidemic across the nation. All of these conditions are documented to be induced and/or exacerbated by RF/microwave electromagnetic fields….”

Toxic herbicides are sprayed liberally around public places with no requirement to warn the public, and often little or no protective clothing worn by the operators

We are living in a world now that is awash with chemicals, found not only in sprays and pesticides, but in our food, water and air. Their use has become largely acceptable now with scant regard often for researching into their possible harmful effects. Any alarms sounded about possible risks are greeted with cries of ‘scaremongering’ or ‘over reaction’ … and yet the  independent research is usually there and often ignored. I’m constantly dismayed at this lack of regard for the evidence, especially since our recent generations consider themselves more enlightened than those of our forbears. We have

the knowledge alright, but who will listen and heed it? A video which has encouraged me to keep speaking up about these environmental risks to our health has been that produced by TED talks (they’re on Youtube also) called ‘The Dangers of Willful Blindness’ (the video is on our Home page). Gayla Benefield was just doing her job — until she uncovered an awful secret about her hometown that meant its mortality rate was 80 times higher than anywhere else in the U.S. Worse, when she tried to warn people of her discovery they didn’t want to know! How often we are faced with fact but choose not to believe. We adopt what I call the ‘three monkeys’ approach where it’s assumed, if we neither see, hear nor speak we’re safe … a lot like the ostrich really. But somewhere down the track we run the high risk of it all coming back to bite us on the proverbial rear end!

imagesThe Environmental Justice Foundation on pesticide poisoning states that … Across all agricultural sectors, an estimated 1 to 5 million cases of pesticide poisoning occur every year, resulting in 20,000 reported deaths among agricultural workers and at least 1 million requiring hospitalisation….While developing countries account for less than 30% of global pesticide consumption, the bulk of pesticide poisonings occur in a developing world scenario, including an estimated 99% of pesticide-induced deaths…

Aspartame in 81 children’s medicines

From http://www.safefood.org.nz … a revealing article detailing the medicinal products containing Aspartame.

What is Aspartame?

“It is a controversial artificial sweetener, 951 (L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine-methyl-ester). It is cheaper and about 200 times sweeter than sugar.

It comprises two amino acids — aspartic acid and phenylalanine, bound together with methanol. Occurring in natural form, these are bound up, but in aspartame they are not, breaking down readily to formaldehyde (accumulative and known to cause cancer), formic acid (venom in ant stings) and DKP (known brain tumour agent).”

It is found inMore than 6000 products worldwide: sugar-free and diet products, eg NutraSweet & Equal packs & sachets, chewing gum, sweets e.g. Mentos, Extra & Smints, some Eta potato chips, Yoplait Diet-Lite & Weightwatchers yoghurts; Jarrah, Weight-watchers, Nestle & Ovaltine drinks; sports drinks; dietary supplements e.g. Redoxon, silver top Berocca, Healtheries products incl. chewable children’s vitamins; 124 medicines incl. 81 for children e.g. Lemsip, Panadol.”

What Aspartame does to your health:

“According to independent (non-industry funded) doctors and researchers, aspartame can cause a range of symptoms ranging from mild and transitory to debilitating and life-threatening, eg headaches, memory loss, vision loss, depression, seizures, coma and cancer. It can worsen or mimic the symptoms of such diseases and conditions as MS, lupus, ADD, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. It interacts with drugs & MSG, and induces carbohydrate cravings (= weight gain). The methanol in aspartame affects the dopamine system of the brain causing addiction. Methanol, or wood alcohol, is classified as a severe metabolic poison and narcotic.”

Aspartame in 81 children’s medicines

pills-384846_1920
New Zealand medicines and dietary supplements do not have to be labelled with their ingredients

“The controversial additive aspartame is contained in 81 medicines which may be used by children and young people. Green MP Sue Kedgley said that the New Zealand Minister of Health has confirmed Medsafe has approved a total of 124 medicines which contain aspartame.

Ms Kedgley stated: “There should be a requirement that the word ‘aspartame’ appear prominently on the label, along with a warning statement that it has been linked to a range of adverse reactions.” Ms Kedgley is also calling on Medsafe to put pressure on pharmaceutical companies to reformulate their products, and in the meantime ensure medicines containing aspartame are clearly labelled with a warning so parents are aware of its presence and potential for side effects.

Aspartame is not always clearly identified on many labels, because in New Zealand medicines and dietary supplements do not have to be labelled with their ingredients. We therefore reproduce a list of the brandnames. Not all the medicines in a particular brand will contain aspartame – look for ‘sugar-free’, also ‘chewable’ and ‘effervescent’. One reason why manufacturers use aspartame in so many products is because it is cheaper than sugar, as well as being addictive. (For a full list of the 81 medicines containing aspartame, see below.) If you are not sure whether a medicine you are giving your child contains aspartame, ask the pharmacist….”

Some of the items on the list:

  • Anti-inflammatory Lozenges – Menthol and Eucalyptus Flavour Lozenge Amcal
  • Anti-inflammatory Lozenges – Raspberry Flavour Lozenge Amcal
  • Augmentin Duo 200 Powder for oral suspension

WHO Cancer Agency Asked Experts to Withhold Weed Killer Documents

What is especially infuriating about this is Monsanto’s original claim their product would “solve the world’s food problem”. Food problem? Read Susan George’s exposé of the real root cause of the world’s food problem. It’s not because of laziness and overpopulation as the powers that be would have you believe. You can download that book (written in the ’70s) for free (search pdf). Agribiz corporations created the food problem, now corporations claim they can fix it … well of course they can! … and for a whole lot more profit – to themselves.
EnvirowatchRangitikei


The horrific truth about this disastrous chemical is that, while Monsanto claims it’s harmless, it actually creates nutritional deficiencies and systemic toxicity in the human body, and is linked to multiple chronic diseases and conditions including autism.

Sprayed in a section adjacent to a primary school in NZ, farmers are told Roundup is harmless

Reuters news service has discovered that the World Health Organization’s (WHO) cancer agency advised a review panel not to disclose documents on the weed killer glyphosate requested under U.S. freedom of information (FOIA) laws, according to America Online News. The report said the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) claims they are exempt from FOIA laws because they alone own the information.

Critics of the IARC’s “possibly carcinogenic” classification of glyphosate — including Monsanto vice president Scott Partridge — say they want to review the agency’s work. Glyphosate is the most heavily used agricultural chemical of all time, with 1.8 million tons of it applied to U.S. fields since 1974; two-thirds of that in the last 10 years.

When this toxic poison was first released in connection with “Roundup Ready” genetically engineered (GE) glyphosate-tolerant crops (soy, corn and cotton), Monsanto promised it would reduce the use of pesticides worldwide and solve the world’s food problem. Instead, it’s been a dismal failure, with “super weeds” resistant to glyphosate posing a massive worldwide problem.


The horrific truth about this disastrous chemical is that, while Monsanto claims it’s harmless, it actually creates nutritional deficiencies and systemic toxicity in the human body, and is linked to multiple chronic diseases and conditions including autism.

In 2009 a French court found Monsanto guilty of lying about its safety, and since then other research has shown more evidence of glyphosate’s dangers.

“Did you know that back in 1990, the Environmental Protection Agency was all set to release a report that admitted electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are dangerous to our health, including that EMFs have been linked with “the development of various cancers” but stopped short of straight up admitting they are “probable carcinogens”?..”

CARCINOGENIC GLYPHOSATE DISCOVERED IN 93% OF URINE SAMPLES | UCSF STUDY

From myeclinik.com

In 2015, the University of California – San Francisco started conducting a study about glyphosate in humans after it has been classified as carcinogenic by the United Nations.

The results, as published only last month, indicated that at least 93% of urine samples, tested in the early phase of the study, contain certain levels of carcinogenic glyphosate.

The question now is: are these field exposure levels of the chemical fall within the safe levels previously published?

Is there really a true level of safety when it comes to manmade chemicals?

The Results

Glyphosate was found in 93% of the 131 urine samples tested at an average level of 3.096 parts per billion (PPB). Children had the highest levels with an average of 3.586 PPB.

The regions with the highest levels were the West and the Midwest with an average of 3.053 PPB and 3.050 PPB respectively.

Glyphosate residues were not observed in any tap water samples during the early phase of the project, most likely due to phosphorus removal during water treatment.

Agenda 21 and the Shutdown of Democracy in Aotearoa

Increasingly we are hearing of these scenarios where democracy is shut down in our local District Councils. Time and again, people are dismayed at the fact their seeming representatives whom they elected at LG elections … are straying off onto their own agenda and refusing to listen to the voice of the people. This is a rot that has set in over recent years and seems to be getting more fascist by the day, witness this event at the Auckland Council over the spraying of glyphosate and other chemicals in public places. In the Rangitikei a few of us here have had the same quiet battle where any leaning towards non-chemical weed control is silenced, as regards policy at least. Currently we have less chemical control in town than we used to have however the DC remains adamant glyphosate is quite harmless. Another issue regarding larger than stated or consented leachate quantities being pumped into our WWTP that had come to light via the public, taken then by the Community Committee (the conduit between the public and the DC)  to the DC, and simply then not accepted by the DC. Subject closed in effect! (The Community Committee it appears discusses public toilets a lot and is simply an exercise in window dressing).

All that aside, what is happening to our DCs then?  They are right now looking very fascist. They have little resemblance to democracy and yet folks are still treating them as such. Expecting democratic results and finding they are everything but. They merely give the illusion of democracy. Since running this website I’ve had feedback from locals about having gone to Council over issues that concern them to little effect. They are really great at fobbing you off. It appears, and many of us didn’t know this, that you need to ask that your comments be noted. You cannot simply assume they will be. In much the same way as when I presented glyphosate research to the RDC and later learned I’d failed to ask if the Council would get back to me on the issue. Fortunately a member of the CC was seated beside me and told me the said info, and fortunately also, a Cr asked for the issue to be put on the agenda for next meeting. Had she not, the issue would have disappeared into the black hole forever. And I left wondering what they ever did with it. It would’ve been precisely NOTHING. The ever intriguing machinations of Local Government. Finally, keep in mind that your local DCs are in fact companies. This explains a whole lot. Companies are about profits not people.

Report by Hana Blackmore

On Friday 13 May 2016 legitimate debate was shut down by Auckland Council in a ruthless manoeuvre to keep concerns about carcinogenic chemical use in the city out of the public eye and off the agenda.

COUNCIL FRIDAY 13TH 3B_cropCouncil was finalising and voting through the 2016/17 Annual Plan budget.

Submissions from the public and Local Boards calling for the restoration of funding for non-chemical methods in parks, and the elimination of all use of the toxic herbicide glyphosate from public places had been ignored and omitted from the budget.

An amendment was raised with Mayor Len Brown the previous day to address this by two councillors, Wayne Walker and John Watson, but was not presented by Mayor Brown until the end of the budget deliberations.

Immediately, under a point of order, Member John Tamihere objected saying it was inappropriate and was being raised too late; Mayor Brown did not defend it; and the Chair, Cllr Penny Webster agreed it was out of order and rejected the amendment.

All this in spite of an impassioned plea by Cllr Watson for it to be heard and noting the attendance of members of the public who had sat through over six hours of  debate to hear and support this amendment.  Chair Webster shut Cllr Watson down as well as Cllr Walker who tried to clarify the situation and the reason it was appropriate to be heard.

Pleas to the Chair and Mayor Brown, were all to no avail.

COUNCIL FRIDAY 13TH 7_cropIn an act of defiance those of us still present refused to be silenced.  When Council resumed after a short adjournment to rubber stamp the budget, I pleaded with the Mayor to use his prerogative and hear the amendment. Read more:

“What if that clear, clean-looking liquid you use every day – to quench your thirst, to bathe and shower in, and to wash your dishes and laundry in contributed to dozens of everyday ailments, including…heart attacks, tiredness, sinus problems, sperm count, risk of miscarriage, a weakened immune system and many more.

Truth is, the water we use in and around our homes is far from the fresh, pure resource you might assume. And the worst part is…

Americans are ingesting from 300 to 600 times what the Environmental Protection Agency considers a “safe” amount while chlorine itself is relatively benign, and was created to help keep us free from infectious diarrheas, it reacts with organic materials which already dissolve in water, forming chemicals (known as DBP’s) that are over 100 times more toxic than chlorine…

  • According to the U.S. Council of Environmental Quality, the cancer risk to people who drink chlorinated water is 93 percent higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine.

  • The residents of a small town in Pennsylvania who ate diets rich in saturated animal fats and milk had no heart attacks – until they switched from mountain spring water to fluoridated water.
  • Research from the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands discovered that people who swam in chlorinated pools or polluted waters as children had 2.2 to 2.4 times the risk of developing melanoma compared to those who did not swim in chlorinated waters.

EU Parliament backs glyphosate restrictions

Greenpeace Press release – April 13, 2016

Brussels/Strasbourg – MEPs have backed restrictions on the use of glyphosate – the world’s most used weedkiller – and a shortening of its licence, amid rising health concerns.In a non-binding resolution, the European Parliament called for a ban on all uses of glyphosate-based herbicides in private and public green areas, including spraying in and around public parks, playgrounds and gardens. MEPs also called for restrictions on use in agricultural fields shortly before harvesting, and said a new glyphosate licence should be limited to seven instead of 15 years.

Glyphosate is used widely in NZ, in public spaces, roadsides, playgrounds and parks and is recommended for pasture spraying in tertiary text books

The Parliament also called for full disclosure of the scientific evidence behind an assessment of glyphosate by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Environmental and transparency organisations have called for the full publication of this evidence, and criticised glyphosate producers for their reluctance to publish carcinogenicity studies evaluated by EFSA.

Greenpeace EU food policy director Franziska Achterberg said: MEPs are right to call for tough restrictions of glyphosate use, but these are not sufficient to protect people and the environment. The science shows that glyphosate is a threat for public health and must be banned outright. A ban in cities and gardens would not prevent large-scale contamination of food, water, soil and air.”

A NZ Smart water meter installed without consent

With all the information now flowing about how a smart meter is not compulsory and notification of intention to install is required – how can these companies continue on their aggressively persistent mission to ensure we all have one? Legally that is.

Following our recent post about the installation of a Smart (electricity) Meter on a NZ home in Taumaranui where the owner had not given consent and had in fact locked the meter – yet undeterred the lines people broke into the meter box! And here we have more of the same, this time a Smart water Meter was installed. The report comes from stopsmartmeters.org.nz  …

Smart water meter installed in Waiuku NZ without consent

This morning www.stopsmartmeters.org.nz received an email from a concerned resident of Huia Street in Waiuku to say that on Monday (February 29, 2016) she found a card in her letter box informing her that a smart water meter had been installed for her home as part of a trial.

This home owner did not consent to the installation of this device which is designed to produce microwave radiation to send data about water use. In fact just the previous Friday she had received notification from the company that her “water meter did not need to be replaced.”

According to Watercare’s website the smart water meters that it is installing will transmit only once per day; however this information cannot be independently verified at this stage as the company did not state the make and model of the meter on its website.  (The type of smart water meter trialed in Tairua transmits every eight seconds.)

The type of radiation produced by smart water meters (and smart electricity meters) has been classified as possible carcinogen (class 2B) by the World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer.

Study reveals almost all Germans contaminated with glyphosate – that ‘probable carcinogen’

Thanks to thecontrail.com for this link …

Glyphosate’s been dubbed the most toxic chemical we’ve ever had in our environment, by a US Tertiary level lecturer of 55 years experience in agriculture, Professor Emeritus of Plant Pathology (Dr Don Hubert). France has taken glyphosate’s creators Monsanto to Court and won on the claim they have lied about its safety, following Professor Seralini’s research that uncovered its carcinogenic properties. (‘Probably carcinogen’ are the operative words however if you see the tumours at the link on the rats Seralini used you’d probably want to refrain from using it, in the interests of safety). Nevertheless, in spite of all this evidence Kiwis (who also consume the highest amount of 1080 in the world and call themselves clean and green) still delight in slathering it far and wide on our roadsides, gardens, public parks and even schools (please sign our petition for the Rangitikei). We pride ourselves as being intelligent and forward thinking but in this department we are severely retarded, in my opinion anyway. So widely used now in fact, Glyphosate is even being found in breast milk these days, in urine and blood and more recently it was discovered in tampons. And need I remind us, cancer stats are now one in three. Potentially, one third of your family, friends, acquaintances, will be diagnosed with cancer. This is very credible. I can count nine in my own circle. Surely … is it really worth the risk of snubbing our noses at the evidence? Just because grandpa used it all his life and is still walking around. Many weren’t so lucky.

Check out the studies in Germany and what they’ve turned up…

theecologist.org Nicole Sagener / EurActiv.de

farmer-880567_1280A new study shows that 99.6% of Germans are contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate, writes Nicole Sagener. The news comes as the EU puts off a crucial decision on whether to re-authorise the chemical, described by IARC as ‘probably carcinogenic’, until 2031.

“Meat eaters also displayed higher levels of glyphosate contamination than vegetarians or vegans. This finding may reflect the high levels of glyphosate found in the ‘Roundup-ready’ GMO soy and corn used in animal feeds.”

All but 0.4% of the German population have been contaminated by the controversial herbicide glyphosate, according to a study carried out by the Heinrich Böll Foundation.

The study analysed glyphosate residue in urine and concludes that 75% of the target group displayed levels that were five times higher than the legal limit of drinking water.

“A third of the population even showed levels that were between ten and 42 times higher than what is normally permissible.”

EU still to decide on glyphosate re-authorisation to 2031

Harald Ebner, a genetic engineering and bio-economic policy with the German Greens, warned that “now nearly every single one of us has been contaminated by plant poison, it is clear to me that no new authorisations for 2031 should be issued.”

Flu Shot Ingredients & Why You Should NEVER Get One

http://vaxxter.com

Flu shot hysteria is in full swing. In some ways, the most dangerous flu shot ingredients are the socio-political elements that make up the hysteria: drug company marketing, co-worker bullies, corporate mandates. I can’t tell you how many stories I hear from readers who are bullied and subjected to discrimination at corporate offices. It is utterly appalling.

But there are actual ingredients which are, well, pretty bad. They are disgusting. Here are a few winners.

Formaldehyde: You know, the stuff your science class preserved frogs in. This stuff is also used to maintain (stabilize) your flu vaccine concoction. Formaldehyde is a colorless and flammable substance often used in household cleaning products. You can, as alluded to before, embalm a dead body using it. It has been linked to neurological damage and metabolic acidosis. It can make it difficult for you to breath. Your kidney may take a dive. It has also been classified as a carcinogen for humans, which means it causes cancer.

Otherwise, it’s pretty safe.

Aspartame is converted by the body into formaldehyde, a cancer-causing chemical

(NaturalNews) The controversy surrounding one of the world’s most popular artificial sweeteners, aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal), continues some 30 years after the chemical was rammed through the regulatory process by pharmaceutical interests, despite its well-documented dangers. And yet to this very day, many people are still unaware of the chemical sweetener’s sordid history, not to mention what aspartame is actually made from and how it affects the body and brain.

Here are a few pertinent facts to get your interest:

  • Aspartame is converted by the body into formaldehyde, a cancer-causing chemical.
  • Aspartame causes obesity and metabolic syndrome.
  • Reagan-appointed FDA commissioner helped get aspartame approved despite evidence showing its toxicity.
  • Aspartame is made from the feces of genetically-modified (GM) E. coli bacteria.
  • Aspartame crosses the blood-brain barrier, potentially causing permanent brain damage.

What they DON’T want you to know about your wireless devices, microwave & mobile phone

“Electromagnetic fields of extremely low frequency have been shown at a high statistical level to influence human circadian rhythms.”

R Wever



This video will take you back to the ground-breaking research that decades ago, first exposed the risks posed by EMFs. Information you were not supposed to be privy to.


“Frequency & vibration! Microwaves, mobiles phones, wireless devices are all linked to TUMOURS & CANCER IN THE BRAIN.”

“We are surrounded by these growing number of frequencies around us, causing illness and death to humans, birds & bees.

The proof is all around us, you can do some simple tests to see how exposed you are, then you can take some measures to protect yourself and your family, then I think we all need to start taking legal action against the owners of these towers.” (Alex Alexander’s Youtube channel)


COMMENT

Do educate yourself on this issue. In particular read and listen to Barrie Trower, a British Physicist who was a microwave weapons expert and worked for the Royal Navy and the British Secret Service. He speaks from his wealth of experience and expertise. He knows what he is talking about and has no vested financial interests in telling you untruths. The corporations however that sell you the said gadgets and appliances do unfortunately, and have no qualms about doing so. Cancers are a growing concern (stats are at one in three and less now) … you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to do the necessary research and make some informed decisions about protecting yourselves. Corporations will not tell you this at risk of alarming you and negatively influencing your buying decisions. There are ways to protect yourself however, that do not involve throwing the gadgets out. Remember also, we now have to contend with the radiation emitted by smart or advanced meters as they are commonly known here in NZ. Smart meters are currently being rolled out and carry proven health risks. Power companies deny their health effects.  Go to our Smart Meter page to learn more.

When you thought glyphosate couldn’t get any worse!

“GLYPHOSATE, SYNTHETIC AMINO ACID ANALOG THAT RANDOMLY WREAKS HAVOC IN BIOLOGY
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++­+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Scientist Anthony Samsel speaks with Tony Mitra on the fifth paper he is writing on Glyphosate, and explains how, apart from all the other harm this chemical brings to our micro biome and health, it is also a synthetic amino acid and slips into the biology of living kingdom by mimicking glycine, one of the essential building blocks of life.

Samsel says this chemical should be banned, its production and use should be stopped and shut down lock, stock and barrel.” (Tony Mitra’s Youtube channel)

Tony Mitra

Delta, Canada

7 Dec 2015 — As if Glyphosate, the main killer chemical in Monsanto’s VisionMax and RoundUp herbicides were not bad enough already. Now we have further and far more damaging information coming from scientist Anthony Samsel of Deerfield, New Hampshire.

A renowned biochemist and research scientist that has been studying Glyphosate, and other potentially harmful chemicals for a long time, he has four peer reviewed scientific papers already published, along with Dr. Stephanie Seneff, on how Glyphosate provides a pathway to various modern diseases….

Some 21 amino acids are the basic building blocks of life on this planet as we understand it. Glycine is one of them …

Glyphosate mimics glycine. Our body may not distinguish between the two, perhaps because in our evolutionary history, our immune system never had to distinguish between glycine, which we absolutely need in every cell, every tissue, every chromosome and DNA strand, and glyphosate, which we absolutely do not need in our biology….”

Your essential food: are you checking what’s in it and where it came from?

Food was something up until the 1940s folk just grew out in the back yard … supermarkets were a new invention. Still, many gardeners kept going well into the 1970s, and growing your own food is currently making a huge come back. I recall as a child, unlike in today’s supermarkets, the shop owners went out back and got all the items on your list and put them in a brown cardboard box or paper bags. We also collected raw milk in a billy from the local Dairy and drank it, and believe it or not one of us died from doing that. Neither did I ever hear one report of food poisoning from raw milk. Today our milk is so heated and treated and added to, much of the nutrients have disappeared, and sadly, some countries have banned raw altogether. Check out the health benefits of raw milk:                                                                                                   http://www.raw-milk-facts.com/raw_milk_health_benefits.html  http://www.drdeborahmd.com/health-benefits-raw-milk

I recall as a child, every morning around 5 am awakening to the sound of my father chipping away the weeds in his vegetable garden just outside my window, before breakfast and the working day. He grew everything we ate. And he didn’t spray our vegetables with anything either. He also saved the seed from one plant that he left for that purpose and of course there was an abundance for next season and the neighbours. Nature supplies abundantly although Monsanto would have us believe that GE crops can do better.

Cauli, straight from the garden

(They recently tried suing the Guatemalan people for saving their seed, something they’ve done for hundreds of years). Corporations back in the day had not gotten blatantly greedy enough yet to patent seeds. They have now of course and are busy gobbling up all the companies to tighten their hold on humanity. Then there’s the Food Bill that aims to stop all this sharing and caring by passing our veg over the back fence. What a blasphemy to humanity this is. (A note on the Guatemalan fiasco, this is due to a trade agreement a … think TPPA … the signs are on the wall).

U.S. Government Planned To “Retaliate & Cause Pain” On Countries Refusing GMOs – Wikileaks

From 

By

(Collective-Evolution) “Studies that link Genetically Modified (GM) food to multiple human health ailments are not the only thing that has millions of people questioning the production of GM food. There is fact that previously classified secret government documents exist which show how the Bush administration developed ways to retaliate against countries that were refusing to use GM seeds, for example. If information about our food needs to be concealed from the public domain, then something has gone seriously wrong with the food industry. It’s great to have an organization like WikiLeaks shed some light into the world that’s been hidden from us for so many years…”

Targeting Certain Countries

“The cables reveal that the State Department was lobbying all over the world for Monsanto and other major biotech corporations. They reveal that American diplomats requested funding to send lobbyists for the biotech industry to meet with politicians and agricultural officials in “target countries.” These included countries in Africa, Latin America, and Europe…”

“This is just one example that clearly shows how giant corporations pretty much dictate government policy. These food corporations are responsible for forcing independent agriculturists to go out of business. They control the world’s seed supply, forcing farmers to become dependent on their seed. Monsanto and corporations like it have created patented GMO seeds and are preventing farmers from seed saving and sharing, resulting in a dependence on their genetically modified product…”

Comment:

See our Corporations page for more on how corporations operate. Watch ‘The Corporation’, on that page, for the finer detail of their workings. You’ll be surprized at the far reach of their persuasion & the lengths they go to to maintain control. This is why we need to oppose the TPPA (protest coming up on 14th November). Corporations are about profits and they will guard those to the death almost. They use well paid lawyers in their large armoury of tactics. GMOs are being resisted world wide now that more of the truth is out. Research GMOs for yourself if you’re not up to speed with them. Much of our food, particularly soy and corn is already GM, and it isn’t labeled. It has never been proven safe and there is much data now to cause you to want to refrain.

“Mr. Barrie Trower, a British physicist who was a microwave weapons expert and who worked for the Royal Navy and the British Secret Service, talks about the health effects of WiFi and other forms of microwave radiation.

Mr. Trower came out of retirement because he was concerned that the microwave frequencies and intensities to which children are exposed in schools are similar to those used for microwave weapons.”

Comment:

When a Royal Navy Microwave weapons expert tells us Wifi is killing us, we really ought to be taking heed of the warning. It’s the same old story though … because the threat is invisible we think it’s not happening. Educate yourself and listen to Prof Trower’s advice. Another excellent watch on the topic is Take Back Your Power. You will learn there of one woman’s shocking discovery after the terrible loss of her adult son to brain cancer. He had lived in a University hostel placed right near a cell phone mast, and there had in fact been multiple similar deaths to cancer by young people living previously in the same room as her son. These threats are very real. You will find more info and links on our EMF and Smart Meter pages.

GM Cow Trials in New Zealand Show Disastrous Results

Our supposedly ‘clean green’ country (and don’t get me wrong, I love my country) is sold to the world as being GE/GMO free. I’ve been repeating this often on here that we are not. (Read a quote from the Green Party on GE animal feed). Back in 2000 Nicky Hager wrote in his book ‘Seeds of Distrust’ that GE Corn was grown here in several different locations, without the public’s knowledge and obviously without their consent. Once uncovered, the PM at the time,

plant-476921_1280
PM Helen Clarke initially ordered the GE corn be pulled up … then did an about turn (‘Seeds of Distrust’ by Nicky Hager)

Helen Clarke ordered the crops be pulled up and disposed of, however after some discussion and clearly corporate persuasion, the crops were left in and went to full term and harvest. How many other organic or otherwise crops were contaminated? Who knows given the industry is inclined to secrecy and an aversion to labeling of anything containing their poisonous products?  As a result of all this the bar of acceptance levels was raised a little higher, widening the previously thin end of the wedge so to speak. It’s happening by increments folks. So here now we are being told of a 15 year excursion into biological experiments on genetically modified/engineered (whatever you like to call tinkering with nature) cows … and note, with ‘disastrous results’.

Cows in Spring
NZ Cows are fed GE stock feed

“GE Free NZ ‘s report on “GE Animals in New Zealand: the first fifteen years, 2000 – 2015”, documents the world’s first field trials of genetically modified cows, bred to express one of six transgenic protein traits in milk for use as bio-pharmaceutical products. Agresearch has conducted the research at their Ruakura facility in Hamilton.

Using AgResearch’s own records, the report catalogues a sad and profoundly disturbing story that has characterised the genetic engineering (GE) trials.

The surrogate and transgenic cows suffer from chronic illness, reproductive losses, sudden unexplained deaths, and severe deformities.

In the course of fifteen years of experimentation, many thousands of transgenic embryos, predominately developed offshore in private partnership laboratories, have been used…”

“Omission and selective reporting of important experimental data to the media has enabled AgResearch to avoid scrutiny into the tragic results of using animals as bioreactors.”

COMMENT:

Here’s an illustration of what one person’s research into hidden environmental hazards can turn up. You would think people would be pleased to be warned however not so. In this instance nobody wanted to hear why their town’s death rate was 80 times higher than anywhere else in the US. I encounter similar disbelief when I relate the hidden dangers of Smart Meters and other RF radiation risks, and chemicals in our food, water and air. Too often people only begin to take this all seriously when bad health strikes. We need to remember again, corporations are about profits for their shareholders and these come first. Any environmental risks are only disclosed (if at all) in very fine print which few read. Corporations are not devoted to the good health of their buying customers … we the people need to fulfill that mandate. Be warned.

COMMENT:

Remember, the effects of these tiny amounts of chemicals may not show up in your health for many years. The accumulation is slow … but sure. Read a book called ‘The Politics of Cancer’ by Dr Samuel Epstein written long ago, in the 1970s in fact. Yes, it was known way back then that environmental factors played a large part in our vulnerability to cancer but the health industry continues to act mystified and carries on asking for your donations to research endlessly for cures. There are in fact many cancer fighting protocols that have been successful but you are never going to hear about them in mainstream media. Do some research … there is plenty of information out there now … on the internet that is.  And, additionally, there are alternative products you can buy … without the toxic additives … they may cost a little more, like organic food, however you will save in medical bills later.

Glyphosate found in pet food


The article from TruthAboutPetfood:

Glyphosate-testing“Concerning information shared with us by Dr. Michael Fox and research scientist Dr. Anthony Samsel. Glyphosate in pet food can have deadly consequences.

From Dr. Michael Fox:

Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide which contains the active ingredient glyphosate, recently designated a possible carcinogen, is actually absorbed by GM (genetically modified) crops genetically engineered to be resistant to this herbicide. Most corn, soy, sugar beet, cotton, and canola produced in the U.S. is GM, as is much imported rice. Glyphosate is also used to dessicate wheat and other crops before harvesting.”

Dry pet kibble found to contain glyphosate

This article is from the TruthAboutPetFood site. This is no surprize to me given so much is now GE without our knowledge or without labeling. Soy and corn are two typical examples and these are found in many products, particularly bread. They are fillers and are frequently used to add bulk to products. Glyphosate is also sprayed on crops and as I often point out, is sprayed onto fields regularly on the recommendation of our Agricultural textbooks, so on that alone is going to be present in our meat products. And all because farmers have been told for decades that it’s perfectly safe.  As the article points out, it is a probable carcinogen, although it says ‘possible’. WHO has deemed it class 2A – a ‘probable’ carcinogen. To read up on glyphosate including the WHO data, visit our glyphosate page on the website.

Speaking in front of an audience of more than 100 residents from across the South Okanagan at the Oliver Community Centre this past Saturday morning, Dr. Malcolm Paterson gave a detailed two-hour presentation – following by an extended question and answer period – about the concerns he shares with fellow scientists and the medical community about the impact of wireless technology on human health.

Paterson’s presentation was entitled The Electromagnetic Age: A Sleeping Giant?

The level of radio frequency (RF) and electromagnetic frequency  (EMF) technology impacting the lives of hundreds of millions of residents around the world is 3,000 times higher than levels measured back in 1980, said Paterson, who has given four previous similar presentations in the South Okanagan over the past three weeks.

Paterson has a Masters degree in Science from Queen’s University in Kingston and attained his PhD in molecular oncology in the United States.

Health Canada’s current measurement system to determine the impact of wireless technology – including smart meters and cellphones – is called Safety Code 6, said Paterson.

Here’s good news – California May Soon Label Monsanto’s Roundup as ‘Known to Cause Cancer’

Any moves to tighten the controls on the liberal use of carcinogenic herbicides/pesticides, especially in public places, is a good move, and labeling products as potentially carcinogenic is definitely a move in the right direction.

Here is an article by Anthony Gucciardi at the Natural Society website.

“Monsanto may be in for a big surprise, courtesy of the EPA California state. The EPA’s environmental health hazard assessment office out of California has announced a move to label the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide ‘Roundup’ (and four others) as “known to cause cancer….

As RT reports:

“The EPA’s office of environmental health hazard assessment in California wants to label four chemicals, including the most popular herbicide and key ingredient of Monsanto’s Roundrup, glyphosate, as “known to cause cancer,” following the most recent WHO cancer research division’s report.”

World Health Organization Only Requires 90 Days ‘Safety Testing’ on GMOS – Not Long Enough for Tumours to Show

It is well documented what GMOs do to the human body (see videos in this article) let alone the animals. (Liver disease is one effect). However, here we see how Monsanto (and WHO) manage to hoodwink the public by ensuring the testing period required is not long enough for any health effects to emerge … yet. As Prof Seralini discovered in his two year long research with lab rats.  As to the animals, here in NZ our stock (who knows how much) is being fed GE feed. Two producers I’ve contacted here in NZ who are particularly more humane in their animal treatment couldn’t rule out some of the cheaper feed they acquire (making their businesses economically viable) ‘may’ contain GMOs given they are soy products. So … if they admit they possibly are feeding their stock GE food, then what of the larger factory farmed livestock where cost cutting is a primary objective? You can bet your bottom dollar they will be munching on GE feed. The Green Party has drawn this to the public’s attention numerous times.

An excerpt from the Natural Society’s article:

By Christina Sarich

“The WHO could have picked any arbitrary number of months to ensure that GMOs were safe, and make sure that the public wasn’t dining on food that would cause serious damage to their intestines, their livers, their reproductive organs, and their brains. But I suppose just THREE months will do just fine when experimenting with the global food supply and global population.”
