H1N1 Flu National Emergency?

October 24, 2009 Leave a comment

Days after CBS revealed staggering numbers proving that the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has highly exaggerated the number of positive H1N1 Flu cases in the country, President Barrack Obama declares swine flu a national emergency.

According to CBS, the CDC told states to stop testing for H1N1 flu after late July 2009. This also made them stop counting individual cases in each state. CBS says that this was done because H1N1 flu was already considered an epidemic. This means that every person who visited their physician after late July with flu- like symptoms was assumed to have swine flu.

After their request was rejected by the CDC to see the state by state statistics, CBS went to each of the 50 states and were given the data directly from the states. They found that:

“… The vast majority of cases were negative for H1N1 as well as seasonal flu, despite the fact that many states were specifically testing patients deemed to be most likely to have H1N1 flu…”

This information has to make people wonder why the president declared the flu a national emergency Friday night. According to Natural News by making H1N1 flu a national emergency, the government gains many powers that the Bill of Rights would usually not allow. These powers include:

–The power to force mandatory swine flu vaccinations on the entire population

–The power to arrest anyone who refuses to take the vaccine

–The power to quarantine an entire city and stop all traffic in and out of that city

–The power to enter any home or office without a search warrant and order the destruction of any belongings or structures deemed to be a threat to public health.

–The effective nullification of the Bill of Rights. Your right to due process, to being safe from government search and seizure, and to remain silent to avoid self-incrimination are all null and void under a Presidential declaration of a national emergency.

Many health experts who are publicly against this vaccination think that this is all being done by Big Pharma in order to sell more vaccines, which will be coming in November.

I think that President Obama is going to continue losing supporters due to his lack of work in some areas, and “over managing” of others, i.e. H1N1 flu.  The information that CBS found was more than enough to make many people weary of the swine flu situation, this should make people ask questions but…nobody will except CBS, the White House’s rival Fox News, and some independent bloggers and doctors on the web.

Here is Dr. Joseph Mercola talking with Barbara Loe Fisher, founder of the National Vaccine Information Center.

The Truth about Vitamin D and the Almighty Sun

September 5, 2009 Leave a comment


For years the people of the United States have been lied to and mislead about the sun. Putting on our spf 50 before entering the harmful rays of the disastrous sun has become second nature to millions of people. It makes me wonder how people could ever think that the sun, the center of the universe, has no benefits and is so detrimental that spending five minutes in it will instantly give you skin cancer. How could the sun, which is imperative for the life of humans, plants, trees, and all other living organisms on this planet, be so harmful? In this article you will learn about how healthy the sun really is for you and how it can even prevent many chronic diseases and cancers.

**The following information has been taken from many sources, mainly from nutritionist Krispin Sullivan and Dr. Joseph Mercola.**

With exposure from the UV rays from the sun, Vitamin D synthesis in the skin of the human body is triggered. It has been proven that the sun is the best source of the very essential Vitamin D for for your body. What is so important about vitamin D? The major function of Vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. This helps form and maintain strong bones in the body. A depletion of this vitamin in the body can result in soft, brittle bones and other diseases and cancers that will be mentioned later. The sunscreen that everybody rubs into their skin does not allow the penetration of UV rays into the skin, unless it is spf 7 or less. This obviously does not allow the synthesis of Vitamin D in the skin which results in harmful diseases.
I am
not saying that going into the sun for hours and getting maximum sun exposure is healthy because it is not. The sun’s rays can be harmful if taken in too much. You will know when you have taken in too much of the sun’s rays when you get burned so bad that your skin is pealing. According to experts, a person should go in the sun in the beginning of the spring, or once the sun starts to get strong enough, for ten to fifteen minutes to get a base tan. This is important because eventually you will get tanner and tanner and it will be very hard for you to get burned during the summer. While too much sun could result in skin cancer too little sun could also harm the body. A deficiency of Vitamin D in the body has been linked to twenty- five different chronic diseases including; breast, prostate, colon, and skin cancer and other chronic diseases such as osteoporosis and schizophrenia. It has also been associated with insulin deficiency which could result in diabetes and Heart disease, the deadliest disease in America. FACT: More heart attacks occur during the winter months. It has also been said that Vitamin D can reduce the amount of mercury in your body which is very important to your well being.

This is from Yahoo news and National Academy of sciences- Jan. 2007: —– Moderate sun exposure offers more health benefits than risks, particularly for people who are deficient in vitamin D.

The article also says that it has been proven that people who live in northern latitudes and are not able to get sun exposure are more likely to develop skin cancer than people who live in sunnier, southern latitudes.

With this new information I think that you should go out and enjoy the sun, just not too much. If sunscreen is desperately needed try to get some that is less than spf 8 so that some of the sun’s rays will be able to penetrate the skin and release the Vitamin D.

The British Medical Journal said that sunscreen does not protect against UVA rays, which are the cancer causing rays, so people should not rely on sunscreen for complete protection against cancer. Some doctors say that sunscreen has certain toxins in it that, when rubbed into the skin, could also potentially cause cancer. These carcinogenic chemicals are used in the sunscreen as artificial fragrance and color.  These chemicals can cause major damage to the liver and heart. It also contains petroleum products that are used as stabilizers and fillers.  For more information go to http://www.mercola.com or read “Sunlight Robbery” or just search ‘Benefits of the sun’ in any search engine.

Also know that taking in sun from behind glass is will do the opposite of what the sun will usually do. This is because the glass filters out the healthy UVB rays and leaves only the UVA to penetrate the skin which may even take away from the Vitamin D in your body.

The Miracle Oil

September 4, 2009 Leave a comment

Coconut on a Beach If you haven’t familiarized yourself with Coconut Oil I highly suggest you go out and buy it the next time your shopping. My family and I found it about a year ago and were amazed when we learned all of the great benefits it has for your body. We now use it for just about everything. It can be used as a substitute for olive or the very harmful canola oil, it can be used as moisturizer, it can be applied to your hair, it can do everything…it’s the Miracle Oil.

Coconut oil is the healthiest oil you can get, just make sure that you buy the organic extra- virgin coconut oil for healthiest results. It’s great health benefits are due to the fact that it is rich in lauric acid, which is known for being antibacterial and containing absolutely no trans fat. By using Coconut oil on a daily basis you will soon see a difference in your skin, hair, and complexion, all for the better. But this oil also benefits you in ways that you cannot see. It has been proven that the ingestion and use of coconut oil results in low stress, maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, weight loss, and increased immunity. It also helps prevent kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, and even cancer.

If you are an athlete or dieting you should definitely check this oil out because it has very little fat content, and the fat that it does contain can easily be turned into energy. Many athletes and bodybuilders prefer to use coconut oil opposed to other oils for this reason.

If you have damaged hair or dandruff coconut oil is highly recommended because it provides the essential proteins needed for the re-growth of the scalp and damaged hair. You could also use it as a conditioner and you will soon notice that your hair will be shinier, healthier, and stronger than before. To do this apply the coconut oil to your hair and scalp and gently massage your it, especially the scalp. This process will also help in lowering stress.

If you are a person who has dry skin, eczema, or bad acne, coconut oil will do wonders for you. Washing your face with coconut oil everyday will help clean your pours resulting in decrease of acne and if your a person who suffers from eczema it will help keep control of breakouts. It also slows time….kind of, by applying it to your face it will delay any wrinkles and sagging skin from your face that usually come with age. My cousin has eczema and during the past summer he was having a lot of difficulty with his skin because he was swimming in a chlorinated pool everyday, chlorine can be very damaging to the skin. Instead of rubbing chemicals into his body we told him to try some coconut oil, within days he saw a difference.

If you are dieting this is the oil for you because it increases the bodies metabolism which helps you burn energy which results in the loss of weight.

Do you have a baby or young child? Coconut oil will help the healing process on those nasty bruises that are all over your kid’s legs and it also helps heal diaper rash.If you haven’t been convinced about all the great benefits of coconut oil by reading this, and there are a lot more, or you have a hard time believing a kid like me, click here where you can read the scientific reasoning to all of these statistics that I am relaying to you.
