While ubiquitous in nature, melanin, which provides the coloring found in hair, skin, eyes, feathers, scales, etc., is an especially important substance as far as the human condition is concerned. Melanin’s role in determining skin color makes it the primary physiological basis for racial differentiation among humans; in fact, entire civilizations have arisen and fallen due to perceptions and misperceptions concerning its nature and signification.
We are now increasingly being exposed to an emerging class of “metalloestrogens” in our food, supplements and environment with the potential to add to the estrogenic burden of the human breast.
Some of the most powerful medicines provided to us are actually in our kitchen cupboard, “pretending” to be condiments, spices or foods. Some we are too familiar with to readily recognize them for their astounding health benefits, even though we may be consuming them daily
Many of the most commonly used forms of chemotherapy target the fast-replicating cells, tricking them into incorporating deadly chemicals within their DNA, like fluoride or platinum, or by otherwise blocking some key cog in the machinery of DNA replication or translation.
The idea that one can reverse aging, especially in eye diseases like cataracts, is usually looked upon as an unrealistic expectation. And yet research increasingly reveals that dietary interventions can lead to remarkable improvements.
Wheat could be driving more than your digestive system crazy.
While wheat is well known to wreak havoc on the gastrointestinal health of genetically susceptible folks, such as those with celiac disease, and more recently, irritable bowel syndrome, new research published in the journal Psychiatry Research indicates that sensitivity to one of the components in wheat known as gliadin could be driving some into states of acute mania.
In the first study of its kind researchers have linked trans fatty acid consumption to increased aggression in humans. Published in the Public Library of Science’s own journal, PLoS, March 5th 2012, researchers at the Dept. of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego, reported: "This study provides the first evidence linking dTFA [dietary trans fatty acids] with behavioral irritability and aggression."
Over the course of the past few years of indexing, GreenMedInfo.com has been collecting studies that confirm the traditional use of a natural substance for medicinal purposes. This section is called "Science Confirms Tradition" and contains 43 studies.
A new study in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Gynaecology confirms what many who have undergone a hospital birth already know: the use of the labor-inducing drug pitocin (synthetic oxytocin) leads to great pain and suffering, including serious adverse, unintended health effects to both mother and infant.
It’s fall in the northern hemisphere and more than one type of darkness has set in. Vaccines are being injected at lightning speed. New vaccines, untested vaccines, double-strength flu vaccines for the over 65 group; none of which have been shown to be effective at keeping anyone healthy. The naïve are lining up at clinics, shopping malls, and retail stores. They don’t know which kind of vaccine they will receive. Which manufacturer is it? Does it have mercury? What chemicals does it contain?
For quite some time the link between juvenile onset diabetes (type 1) and cow’s milk consumption has been noted in the scientific literature. You can view 12 such references on our Cow’s Milk Page. In genetically susceptible individuals the consumption of cow’s milk triggers an autoimmune destruction of the beta-cells in the pancreas which produce insulin.
New research indicates that the microbial biodiversity of the soil and our food is being dramatically impacted by the use of herbicides like glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller. Researchers have proposed that many soil organisms, which are indispensable for the productivity of the soil in agriculture, as well as in raw and fermented dairy production, may be undergoing endangerment, if not also in some cases extinction in certain geographic regions of the world.
By excluding certain medical journals from its Medline/PubMed indexing services, the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) has limited doctors’ access to information.
Over a quarter of a century ago a study was performed on the seeds of the Soursop fruit, also known as graviola, which at that time demonstrated such amazing cancer-fighting potential, that those exposed to it within the conventional medical community looked upon it with complete incredulity.
Did you know that astronauts undergo vastly accelerated during space flights? It turns out that a deficiency of this mineral at the root of the problem...
On Feb. 23rd, 2012, an assembly bill (AB 2109) was submitted to the California Legislature by state assemblyman and pediatrician, Dr. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento), which will make it harder for parents to refuse to vaccinate their children. The bill is sponsored by the California Medical Association (CMA), the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the California Immunization Coalition.
Advertised as "produced without potentially harmful pesticides," this "Organic" Infant Formula actually contains chemicals used as pesticides and which it lists on its label as a "nutritional" ingredient. And this is just the tip of the toxicological iceberg -- a case of "organic-washing" at its worst!
“If we have declared a war against the soil itself, then we are literally committing a species level suicide.” — Dr. Vandana Shiva
END OF VACCINE EXEMPTIONS IN CALIFORNIA?
Didn't take much of a fortune teller to predict the attack on the philosophical vaccine exemption in California, which I did in the April 2011 Newsletter . But it's here, right now in California. A week ago Bill AB2109 was proposed...
Modern science is beginning to vindicate the ancient wisdom of our palates … Butter, for instance, and without which - some argue - French cuisine would not be possible, contains a heavy concentration of saturated fats (the dietetic equivalent of a four letter word!), and also contains a trans-fatty acid known as vaccenic acid, that - get this! - lowers blood cholesterol levels, triglycerides and exhibits heart-protective properties.
Startling research published in the journal Apoptosis indicates that hepatitis B vaccine, which is designed to prevent Hepatitis B virus-induced damage to the liver, actually causes liver cell destruction
A new study that looked at 14 years of mammography screening in Norway found that the increased incidence of breast cancer observed in that period was due to over-diagnosis: "findings of tumours that in the absence of screening would never have given rise to clinical illness."
New research published in the journal PLoS indicates that the use of the cholesterol-lowing class of drugs known as statins is associated with an increased prevalence of microalbuminuria, a well-known marker of vascular dysfunction, affecting both cardiovascular and kidney disease risk.
Cancer can no longer be viewed as something bad that happens to an intrinsically healthy body. Rather, cancer is something the body actively does in response to an intrinsically unhealthy cellular, bodily and planetary environment.
While geneticists apply vast amounts of time, energy and money to finding the "causes" of disease in our genes, much less attention is placed on research that has already demonstrated the triggers of autoimmunity such as infections, vaccines, pesticide and petroleum exposure (diesel fuel particles) and the consumption of foods like wheat, cow's dairy and soy (unfermented, GMO and/or excessive) are the major contributing factors in the development of type 1 diabetes.
Recent research published in the journal Archives of Environmental and Occupational Health concluded that the "Laptop is paradoxically an improper site for the use of a LTC [laptop computer], which consequently should be renamed to not induce customers towards an improper use."
Feeling "grounded" is an increasingly uncommon experience in this day and age, and it should be, considering we no longer regularly touch the ground with our bare feet, as nature intended.
Is the mycellium of the mushroom the biosphere's equivalent of internet connectivity?
Disturbing new research published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology indicates that genetically modified (GM) crops with stacked traits, that is, with multiple traits such as glyphosate-herbicide resistance and Bacillus Thuringensis (Bt) insecticidal toxins engineered together into the same plant, are likely far more dangerous to human health than previously believed, due to their synergistic toxicity.
Last Wednesday the Colorado Board of Health approved a plan that would mandate 90 percent of workers in the health care setting receive flu shots, and would be phased in within 3 years. While the decision sparked a major debate regarding civil rights at the state Capitol, little attention was paid to the question of whether flu shots are effective or not.
New research released ahead of print and published in the journal Archives of Toxicology indicates that Roundup, the most common formulation of glyphosate, which is the largest selling herbicide in the world, is not only more toxic than its constituent ingredients, but is capable of damaging DNA within a human cell line when diluted down to 45,000% lower concentrations than presently used in GMO agriculture applications.
Ultimately, our bodies tell a very different story of our origins and need for cooperation with other cellular communities (i.e. probiotics) than the human ego, and its various anthropocentric explanations of who we are and where we came from
The time has come to shift the conceptual framework away from the idea that cancer is something bad that happens to the body, to something the body does to survive vis-à-vis an increasingly toxic and nutrient-deprived environment.
Vaccine efficacy (as defined by antibody titer elevation) and vaccine effectiveness are not the same thing...
GreenMedInfo.com is truly much more than a unique database or premier research website. We believe that personal healing and planetary transformation are inseparable -- which is why we chose early on to do all our development and hosting through energy sources least harmful to our environment.
Would you let your infant drink from the tap? How about "Nursery Water" with added Fluoride? Isn't the point of distilling water to take contaminants and chemicals OUT?
the fatalism associated with cancer is heavily reinforced by the very organizations (largely self-appointed) in charge of "awareness campaigns" and "fund-raising" in the increasingly gaudy and blatantly cynical "cause marketing" programs that have proliferated (like the cancers themselves) into every facet of American, consumerism-based culture. Cancer is not some predestined gene-bomb setting itself off within us, rather....
An ancient fermented food puts pharmaceutical drugs for bone loss to shame...
If you knew that cyanide was found in common mass market vitamin brands, would you consume them? How about a chemical listed as a "nutrient" on the label which is 4 times more toxic than sodium cyanide? Welcome to the wicked world of mass market ingredients like sodium selenite ("a source of selenium"), which has a 50% chance of killing a 150lb adult human at a dose weighing one fifth the weight of a penny!
Is Splenda really a food, or a highly toxic chemical?
While the Polio Global Eradication Initiative (PGEI), founded in 1988, declares itself successful in nearly eradicating wild-type polio in nations like India, vaccine-induced polio paralysis cases far outnumber those the vaccines were intended to prevent. It is believed that vaccines produce at least 300% more cases of polio than those existing in the wild, indicating that a natural problem has been transformed into a manmade one.
In the wake of a 12-year battle to keep Monsanto's Genetically Engineered (GE) crops from contaminating the nation's 25,000 organic farms and ranches, America's organic consumers and producers are facing betrayal. A self-appointed cabal of the Organic Elite, spearheaded by Whole Foods Market, Organic Valley, and Stonyfield Farm, has decided it's time to surrender to Monsanto. Top executives from these companies have publicly admitted that they no longer oppose the mass...
In an unprecedented decision, India's National Biodiversity Authority (NBA), a government agency, declared legal action against Monsanto (and their collaborators) for accessing and using local eggplant varieties to develop their Bt genetically engineered version1 without prior approval of the competent authorities, which is considered an act of "biopiracy."
Infant formula has been linked to over 70 adverse health effects, so why are the vast majority of Americans still using it during the first year of their infant's lives?
In the mainstream media (and the popular consciousness programmed to consume it) defective genes are spoken about as if they were "disease time bombs," fatalistically programmed to go off inside of us, thanks to flawed genetic contributions of our ancestors. Following the completion of the Human Genome Project (HGP) in 2003 it is no longer accurate to say that our genes “cause” disease, any more than it is accurate to say that DNA is sufficient to account for all the proteins in our...
Every moment your body is undergoing an active process of regeneration, based as it is on the ceaseless flux of cell life and death -- not unlike the dissipative structure of a flame. Underscoring this amazing interplay of being and non-being without which life would not be possible, cancer cells are only deadly because they are no longer capable of dying in a well-timed and orderly fashion -- a process of programmed cell death known as apoptosis.
While global media attention presently fixates on the increased risk for rupture within silicone-filled breast implants manufactured by the French company PIP, other less well known, but nonetheless serious health risks associated with implanting silicone-based capsules into the breast are not even being discussed.
A recent study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, found that the cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins increase the risk of diabetes within postmenopausal women by 48%.
This new finding adds to a growing body of clinical evidence that statin drugs are fundamentally diabetogenic, which is not surprising considering the National Library of Medicine contains peer-reviewed, published research on over 300 other known adverse effects associated with their use.
For the same reason that the conventional energy industry has not harnessed the full potential of solar energy (its free!), sunlight and its indispensable byproduct in our skin: vitamin D, represents a serious threat to the conventional medical establishment whose questionable and aggressive promotion of vaccination and drug-based strategies in place of inexpensive, safe and effective vitamin D supplementation for immunity has many questioning their motives
Let's face it: the only real justification for using vaccines to "immunize" ourselves against disease is derived from the natural fact that when challenged by infectious agents the humoral arm of our immune system launches a successful response capable of conferring lasting immunity. Were it not for the elegance, proficiency, and mostly asymptomatic success of our recombinatorial immune system in dealing so well with infectious challenges, vaccination would have no scientific...
Did you know that most calcium supplements on the market are basically limestone? Yes, that's chalk. Conceal it within a capsule, a slickly glazed tablet, or in the form of a silky smooth liquid, and it is magically transformed into a "calcium supplement": easy to swallow, “good for the bones" and a very profitable commodity for both the dietary supplement and mining industries. After all, a sizable portion of the Earth's crust is composed of the stuff.
Vaccine researchers have suggested delaying breastfeeding to "improve" vaccine efficacy.
Osteoporosis is not caused by a lack of limestone, oyster shell or bone meal. Heart attack, however, may be caused by excess consumption of exactly these "elemental" forms of calcium, according to two high-powered meta-analyses published last year in the British Medical Journal
Often when the topic of "chemtrails" come up, the knee-jerk response is to view them as "conspiracy theory," owing to the fact that the evidence of our senses -- i.e. actually seeing them with our eyes -- is not considered evidence enough. We are made to believe that only Science, and its primarily excreta: peer-reviewed, published research can vindicate eye witness or anecdotal accounts.
