During the “Health in Buildings Roundtable” sponsored by the NIH & co-organized by the US CDC and several other organizations, Dr. Martin Pall from the Washington State University (WSU) concluded that the “5G rollout is absolutely insane”. In this short presentation, Dr. Pall confirms that the current 2G/3G/4G radiation the population is exposed to has been scientifically linked with: – Lowered fertility – Insomnia, fatigue, depression, anxiety, and major changes in brain structure in animals – Cellular DNA damage – Oxidative stress – Hormonal disruption – Cancer – And much more Dr. Pall briefly explains the mechanisms of how the electrosmog emitted by our cell phones, wifi routers, cell phone antennas and other wireless technologies affect human cells. For the most current information on Dr. Pall’s work, read the letter he sent to various organizations in the world sooner this year, titled: “5G: Great risk for EU, U.S. and International Health! Compelling Evidence for Eight Distinct Types of Great Harm Caused by Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Exposures and the Mechanism that Causes Them”: https://s3.amazonaws.com/nghl-ntge/pa… Still think this is all tinfoil talk? Read my book, “The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs”: http://getbook.at/emf (warning, you might change your mind!)
How many people ask their MD questions about chemotherapy? Have you ever wondered how such a toxic substance (so toxic that those who administer it must wear gowns and gloves) became the “standard of care” for cancer? The truth of its origin is as far away from a scientific laboratory as one could imagine!
In August of 1943, President Roosevelt approved the shipment of chemical munitions containing mustard gas to the Mediterranean theater. Two thousand mustard bombs were loaded onto the USS John Harvey. The ship was waiting to unload in Bari, Italy when German planes attacked on December 2, 1943. The Geneva Protocol of 1925 prohibited the use of chemical and biological weapons. The Allies didn’t trust the Germans and both sides were secretly stockpiling mustard gas to prepare for retaliation.
Imagine the Allies surprise when the Luftwaffe (believed to be stretched too thin to attack) blew up the USS John Harvey, releasing 2000 mustard gas bombs (120,000 pounds) into the air and the bay, indiscriminately killing soldiers and civilians. Hundreds of sailors who had jumped into the water to escape the sinking ship were covered with an oily, garlic smelling residue that blistered and burned their skin and caused many to lose their eyesight. The Top Brass knew exactly what was causing the symptoms. But they had been ordered to keep quiet.
Lt. Colonel Stewart Francis Alexander was flown to the scene after a short briefing. Alexander was trained to treat the effects of chemical warfare. He instantly recognized the symptoms: garlic-like odor, burning skin, and blindness. It had to be mustard gas. Alexander was able to begin treatment immediately and saved many people. However, when he briefed the commanders, he was told to treat the patients and keep his mouth shut. It was clear to him it was a cover-up. No one wanted the Luftwaffe to know they had blown up a ship filled with mustard gas. Though it would be years before the truth came out, Alexander took tissue samples back to the U.S. to be analyzed immediately.
(Natural News) Gulf War Illness (GWI), or Gulf War Syndrome, is the name given to a cluster of chronic symptoms affecting Gulf War veterans and civilian workers. The cause behind these symptoms — which range from fatigue to joint pains to memory problems — has been studied and debated on for the longest time. Yet scientists from Rutgers Medical School and the Veterans Affairs New Jersey Health Care System may have found an another potential answer, and lingering effect of this conflict; one that lies in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA).
According to lead researcher Michael J. Falvo, the idea for looking into the mitochondria came shortly after he joined the Veterans Affairs New Jersey Health Care System. There, he learned that numerous Gulf War veterans had unexplained symptoms throughout many areas of their bodies. “To me, that sounded awfully consistent with the symptoms of mitochondrial disorders. After reviewing the literature, I realized at that time there was no published study on GWI that investigated whether mitochondrial dysfunction contributed to symptoms,” explained Falvo.
As part of their study, Falvo and his colleagues recruited 28 participants: 21 veterans who had GWI, and three veterans without GWI, and four non-veterans who served as the control group. Blood samples were collected from each participant, which were then analyzed using a revolutionary technique that allowed the researchers to study the mtDNA without having to isolate it from total DNA.
They discovered that the veterans with GWI had more mtDNA and a greater number of lesions, implicating an overabundance of DNA damage. As stated on ScienceDaily.com, the lesions were direct measures of DNA damage, while the extra copies of mtDNA were reflections of the body’s response to the damage.
While browsing recently online for a collagen supplement … particularly a non marine one given the state of Fukushima we’re not told about by MSM (mainstream media). I’m not being alarmist here, it’s just that I would prefer to err on the side of caution these days given corporations have been lying to us for quite a few decades now. Folks with testing devices have been finding their food to be radioactive. Fukushima spews vast quantities of radioactive water into the Pacific ocean daily and has been since 2011 or thereabouts, with the Japanese people gagged from talking about it in relation to their health. Corporate lying is also evidenced by the multitude of fines they are paying these days for their misdemeanors (‘peanut’ fines they pay out of their petty cash pretty much). So, no, this is why I don’t trust their spin.
I located one product anyway that looked pretty good (I’d typed in the search box, ‘natural, organic ingredients’). The brand hailed ‘acclaimed actress Nicole Kidman’ as its global ambassador. Sounded impressive.
“…an Australian owned & operated business devoted to producing quality health supplements by using the best-sourced natural ingredients, latest scientific research and partnering with dedicated professionals in the healthcare industry.” The brand is Swisse.
The product featured “No added: Gluten, lactose, egg, yeast, salt, artificial colours and artificial flavours…” then just above that a short unassuming statement … “Contains sodium benzoate.”
Turns out sodium benzoate’s not so unassuming after all. I found an article from 2009 at healthwyze.org that tells all. Not pretty.
Here is a little quote to spark your interest:
Researchers at Southampton University noted that tests have shown sodium benzoate to lower the I.Q. by up to five points in children. Britain’s Food Standards Agency has even warned parents that sodium benzoate is a primary cause of hyperactivity in children, along with artificial colorings. However, in the U.S., there has been nothing but silence and the destruction of evidence.
“Sodium benzoate is the most effective preservative currently authorized.”
— Richard Laming, British Soft Drinks Association
Some key information on sodium benzoate:
- it is produced by mixing benzoic acid with sodium hydroxide
- it is a common preservative in processed foods and soft drinks
- it is considerably more toxic than either processed sugar or high fructose corn syrup
- It is a bona fide poison
- benzene is the main ingredient of various paint stripper products, rubber cements, and spot removers, due it its highly destructive and solvent qualities
- Countries throughout Europe have been pressuring the food industry to voluntarily remove sodium benzoate from products
- Many have called for an absolute ban on this toxic preservative due to concerns about children’s developmental safety
- U.S. Government and media have remained disturbingly silent on this additive
- there have been no studies in the U.S. about the chemical’s effects upon children
- Only the synthetic version has toxic effects
- it is especially dangerous because it is able to destroy parts of the DNA
- the amount of benzene in soft drinks increases with shelf life
- it is one of the most dangerous preservatives available, but it is the cheapest (follow the money trail)
…there is more … read the article below to see just how much. This is a pertinent reminder to buy unprocessed food that’s not been stripped of all goodness and pumped full of chemicals to maintain its shelf life. Buy organic or grow your own. An excellent expose of the food additive insanity is ‘The Idiot Cycle’ documentary, viewable on Vimeo. It can also be found in one of our posts at this link.

|“Should we make diet or regular?”|
“One of the dirty secrets of the soft drink and processed food industries is sodium benzoate. It is a benzene compound that is produced by mixing benzoic acid with sodium hydroxide. It is a common preservative in processed foods and soft drinks. It has been associated with a vast array of health problems, including all of our major epidemics. Sodium benzoate is considerably more toxic than either processed sugar or high fructose corn syrup, yet it gets very little media coverage. It is a bona fide poison. Outside of our foods, benzene is the main ingredient of Liquid Wrench, various paint stripper products, rubber cements, and spot removers, due it its highly destructive and solvent qualities. It was discontinued in rubber manufacture in the U.S. because it caused a large percentage of workers to get leukemia. …” Read more: http://healthwyze.org/reports/204-are-you-getting-enough-sodium-benzoate-in-your-diet.html
