While the traditional medical establishment calls for the removal of “broken” or “defective” body parts, a watershed study on the long-term effects of tonsillectomy and adenoid removal calls into question the propriety of this surgery, performed on nearly half-a-million children in the United States each year
With flu season rapidly approaching, recommendations for preventatives are everywhere but many are not backed up by science. Can you guess the top five? (Hint: vaccination is not one of them!)
The belief that flu vaccines are safe and effective is a tragically flawed and unacceptably dangerous one.
According to the World Health Organization, 80% of the world's population uses herbal medicine. Are these hundreds of millions of people simply deluded by superstitious nostrums, as Wikipedia and so-called 'skeptics' claim?
With flu cases in this city up tenfold from last year, the mayor of Boston declared a public health emergency on the 9th of January. Right behind them the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared that influenza has reached epidemic proportions in the United States, with 7.3% of deaths last week caused by pneumonia and the flu.
Over the years, a growing number of professionals have questioned whether or not childhood vaccinations could be responsible for the number of children being diagnosed with mental illness
Research shows that colostrum may be nature's safe and healthy alternative to flu vaccines.
Spices, herbs and foods have been used to ward off upper respiratory infections since time immemorial. Today, we have the weight of science confirming some of the these time-tested drug alternatives to cold and flu
There are facts regarding the history of measles that almost never reach the light of day. Here are 14 things you may not have been told by public health officials, your doctor, or the media.
The mainstream media is doing their best to minimize a devastating study showing a high correlation (7.7-fold) between flu vaccines and miscarriages. A review of the scientific literature shows a body of evidence that supports the new study’s conclusions. Why can’t we all just deal with the facts?
In the barrage of information you come across daily online, how do you know what's true and what's nothing more than hearsay, gossip or all-out lies?
Having a "hot body" has more benefits than ever before, thanks to new scientific findings on the role that elevated body temperature plays in helping fight infections and ward-off disease
As of 2013, Big Pharma has had plans for the development of 271 new vaccines covering an array of diseases. Into Whose Bodies Will They be Injected?
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claims that tens of thousands of people die annually from the flu, but what the public isn’t told is that these numbers come from controversial models that may greatly overestimate, which happens to align with the CDC’s stated aim of using fear marketing to increase demand for flu vaccines.
Not only are there serious questions about the efficacy of the flu vaccine, there is evidence to suggest that getting the vaccine every year may cause damage to the immune system.
The federal government and the CDC keep trying to push the Zika vaccine narrative onto us in an attempt to convince us that their role in our lives is not only beneficial, but necessary. Now, it looks like they want to use that narrative to grab even more power.
Last year, the well-propagandized talking heads on TV and radio repeated over and over again how important it was to be fully vaccinated with the newest untried and unproven-for-effectiveness influenza vaccine
New research from Japan and China have confirmed that certain medicinal herbs and their constituents have the ability to directly inhibit influenza as well as stimulate the body's own immune system in order to counteract the flu virus.
Our current system for capturing mortality rates can and does provide a mostly uninvestigated and inaccurate picture of what causes a death. The process is a complicated, convoluted, and politicized one. It is open to both ignorance and the manipulations of personal, professional, and governmental interests. And it drives health care decisions. Think about the recent flu season when every major media outlet provided us with live updates on the accruing death toll. But was it the flu?
Andrographis has the potential to replace a whole host of pharmaceutical drugs, and to improve autoimmune disorders, cancer, metabolic disease, and infection
As more prominent vaccine advocacy organizations are pushing for greater mandatory vaccination laws, a BMJ article asks if these groups are really providing the public with independent information
As a country and a society, we’ve never been anywhere close to “herd immunity” through vaccination, but where are all the epidemics? That doesn’t keep vaccine makers from using herd immunity as a weapon to guilt and scare parents. Why are we allowing “mythology to trump science”?
Recently Big Pharma’s Tamiflu was exposed as ineffective against the flu. But researchers have discovered that natural ginseng extract may succeed where patented synthetic chemicals have failed.
Did your doctor or friendly pharmacist tell you that the flu vaccine could put your mental health at risk?
