Altnews editor’s comment: It has been a long time coming but finally the Vaccine Court confirms the fears we have been expressing in many places for many years.
The sheer number of, albeit anecdotal reports about adverse reactions to the Gardasil HPV vaccine from many different countries represented more than just smoke indicating a blazing fire. It is sad to note that especially the very healthy and athletic young woman appeared to be affected out of proportion. Many promising athletes have been reduced to physical wrecks after the administration of the Gardasil vaccine.
That is has taken so many years for justice to be done by this victim of the #BigPharma vaccine juggernaut only testifies to the power these vaccine pushers wield. So much so that we may be witnessing the emergence of a new religion whose most dogmatic parishioners and high priests are those who profit from spreading the dogma preached by the industry.
HPV Vaccine Gardasil Kills: Confirmed By Court Ruling
By Catherine J. Frompovich
“After 8 long years, the government finally conceded that we met our burden of proof that #Gardasil caused my death.” 
Christina Richelle Tarsell “died from an arrhythmia induced by an #autoimmune_response to the #HPV_vaccine Gardasil which [she] had received only days before [her] death. …. This is a precedent setting case. …. Here are the links to the ruling by #Judge_Coster_Williams and the revised ruling by the Special Master.”  [CJF emphasis]
Interestingly, in the above ruling order by Judge Williams, this is stated as part of the “Opinion and Order”:
Because the Special Master impermissibly elevated Petitioner’s burden of proof and misapplied the legal standard, the Court remands the matter to the Special Master. [Pg.2]
A lack of essential nutrients is known to contribute to the onset of poor mental health in people suffering from anxiety and depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and ADHD. Nutritional psychiatry is a growing discipline that focuses on the use of food and supplements to provide these essential nutrients as part of an integrated or alternative treatment for mental health disorders.
A new scientific systemic review offers rekindled hope in the ability of nutrients to ease the symptoms of schizophrenia.
The study aimed to determine which main amino acids and antioxidants could reduce typical symptoms of schizophrenia in addition to standard treatment. They were most interested in the effects of Taurine, NAC (n-acetyal-cysteine) and vitamins like C, B-complex and B9 on psychotic illness.
Has it ever occurred to you that while using headphones to listen to music through your smartphone, you might be radiating your brain? Unfortunately that thought occurred to me, and I did some research and found out that yes in fact, listening to music with your smartphone and headphones is likely to harm you.
According to RF Safe, an organization that has conducted research on radiation claims that EMF radiation travels straight through the wire of a wired headset directly from the headphone jack to the ear, penetrating a person’s head through the ear canal. They say this increases radiation exposure to a person’s brain by 300%. I suppose they mean 300 percent when compared that to using a cell phone the usual way to talk.
(Natural News) Everyone may have heard, at some point, a friendly suggestion to “eat your vegetables.” It turns out, that is actually sound advice, when it is part of the Mediterranean Diet (MD), according to research. In a study that appears in Current Nutrition Reports, authors used available information from various studies to provide an overview of the link between MD and cancer formation.
The study offered a glimpse of two operational definitions of MD. The first one, the Mediterranean Dietary Score, assigns a value for each component of MD. Beneficial components are factored in the score, which includes the increased intake of vegetables, fruits and nuts, legumes, unprocessed cereals, fish, and a high ratio of monounsaturated fatty acids to saturated fatty acids. In addition, the dietary score also identifies components that are harmful, such as meat and meat products – including poultry – and certain dairy products.
The second one is a derivative of the dietary score, with some modification on food items and scoring. Some important differences include the following:
Removing potatoes from the vegetable group
Splitting fruits and vegetables into two groups
Excluding the dairy group
Adding whole-grain products in a separate category
Including red and processed meat only in the meat group
The authors also looked at randomized clinical trials (RCTs) and prospective cohorts studies on the effects of MD. The first RCT that showed the relationship between MD and ischemic heart disease was the Lyon Diet Heart study, which revealed that MD has a protective effect against cancer development. The cohort studies, meanwhile, indicated that MD could lessen the risk of overall cancer mortality by 13 percent.
The effects of MD on certain types of cancer were also reviewed in this study. The authors found the diet can reduce the likelihood of breast cancer in postmenopausal women. In other forms of cancer, researchers noted that the diet reduced it by the following percentages: 17 percent for colorectal cancer, 4 percent for prostate cancer, 27 for gastric cancer, 42 percent for liver cancer, 44 percent for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, and 40 percent for head and neck cancer.
“The Mediterranean Diet’s ability to help prevent cancer stems from the natural anti-cancer phytonutrients found in the food components of the diet,” explained Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, author of Food Forensics. “Stunningly, there are a few doctors and health practitioners still living today who believe there’s no such thing as an anti-cancer nutrient in natural foods. This is the scientific equivalent of believing in the Flat Earth theory, or the cultural equivalent of believing that women shouldn’t vote or that whites and blacks should drink from different water fountains,” Adams explained. “Every informed nutritionist, doctor and scientist knows that many natural foods contain potent anti-cancer compounds. Anyone who denies that is either scientifically illiterate or self-deluded,” Adams added.
In addition, the components of the MD were also individually reviewed to understand their health benefits.
Fruits and vegetables: Researchers believe that the protective property of fruits and vegetables is due to the presence of flavonoids. In particular, flavonoids possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagenic, and anti-proliferative properties. (Related: Mediterranean diet slows cellular aging, study shows.)
Fish: Eating copious amounts of fish means that the body has access to n-3 fatty acids, the authors wrote. The fatty acids are anti-inflammatory and may inhibit the development of cancers.
Whole grains: The fiber content of whole grains directly affect a person’s chances of developing colorectal cancer, with increased consumption having positive health outcomes. Reviewed studies also indicated that whole grains are also linked to a reduction of insulin resistance – which greatly benefits those with Type 2 diabetes.
Olive oil: The authors noted that consuming olive oil has decreased the likelihood of breast cancer for women, as well as cancers of the digestive system and the development of neoplasms in the respiratory system. Olive oil also contains polyphenols which target specific cells that may cause cancer.
Alcohol and red wine in moderation: Researchers define “moderate” in the study to less than 30 grams a day for men and 20 g/day for women. A separate study has shown that drinking less than 12.5 grams of ethanol (a component of alcoholic beverages) a day can decrease the risk of dying from cancer.
Red and processed meat: Red and processed meat in MD is not widely consumed and is considered to be unfavorable. One study showed that the consumption of red meat is linked to the development of colorectal tumors.
Dairy products: There are differing results of studies on the effects of milk and dairy products when it comes to cancer development.
Researchers concluded that the Mediterranean diet, characterized by food rich in vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, cereals, and fish, lowers the incidence and the development of cancer; thus, reducing the number of deaths associated with the illness.
Angering organic farmers and advocates, the Trump administration announced on Monday that it will officially withdraw a rule that would have added animal welfare regulations for meat, eggs, and dairy marketed as “organic.”
“The decision nullifies 14 years of policymaking in a process mandated by Congress, and marks an about-face for the agency.”
—Lynne Curry, Civil Eats
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) killed the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices (OLPP) final rule after deciding that it “exceeds the department’s statutory authority, and that the changes to the existing organic regulations could have a negative effect on voluntary participation in the National Organic Program,” according to a USDA statement.While Greg Ibach, undersecretary for the USDA’s marketing and regulatory program, claimed that “the existing robust organic livestock and poultry regulations are effective,” organic farmers, animal rights advocates, and consumers who have supported the enhanced regulations—which were published on January 19, 2017 and would have taken effect in May—expressed disappointment with the move.
“The decision nullifies 14 years of policymaking in a process mandated by Congress, and marks an about-face for the agency,” Lynne Curry wrote for Civil Eats. The rule would have “specified a set of standards for organic livestock and poultry designed to minimize stress, facilitate natural behaviors, and promote well-being,” she noted in an update to a piece she published in December.

“I know I would not be here today without it. I want to tell everybody….I’ve beaten science…”
English woman Joy Smith, age 52, was given “just six weeks to live after being diagnosed with inoperable stomach and bowel cancer in August 2016.”
Her friends encouraged her to obtain marijuana tablets to take along with chemo after doctors told her that chemotherapy would only buy her more time. Shortly after beginning chemo, she had to have the chemo line taken out due to Smith developing sepsis.
She also took CBD oil (which does not contain THC) alongside marijuana oil. She wants to see cannabis products legalized, crediting marijuana with saving her life.
Every time there are reports of a mass shooting, there are a number of people who automatically question whether the suspect had mental health issues or was taking prescription medications such as antidepressants.
While history has shown that the most notorious mass shooters in this century were taking antidepressants or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) before they carried out the deadly rampages, there are a number of killings that have been linked directly to the dangerous drugs. In fact, the pharmaceutical companies behind the most popular SSRI’s have paid hundreds of millions of dollars in damages:
Eli Lilly Paid Secret Settlements to Survivors After Man on Prozac Went on Shooting Rampage in 1989
Joseph T. Wesbecker, 47, carried out a mass shooting in which he shot 20 workers at Standard Gravure Corp. in Kentucky, in September 1989. Eight of the victims were fatally wounded, and Wesbecker ended the rampage by shooting and killing himself.
Just one month earlier, Wesbecker had started taking the antidepressant Prozac, which included side effects such as “obsession with suicide and dangerously violent behavior,” according to an article in the American Journal of Psychiatry.
When the survivors of the shooting filed a lawsuit against Eli Lilly arguing that it had known about the propensity of Prozac to cause violent outbursts and suicidal tendencies, the company convinced the victims to agree to secret settlements outside of court.
Here is an incomplete list of some of the culprits:
A) Foreign Mining Corporations (PolyMet, Glencore, Twin Metals, Antofagasta, etc.);
Minnesota’s Elected Politicians/Accomplices (both Corporate-influenced “Liberal” Democrats, and “Conservative” Republicans);
Minnesota’s “Regulatory” Agencies that are Supposed to be “Natural Resource Protectors” (Including the DNR, the PCA, and the US Forest Service); and
Most Area Newspapers; Most Area Television Stations; All the Area’s Chambers of Commerce; Minnesota Power (Electric Utility); the Trump Administration; Regional Labor Unions: and Dozens of Suppliers/Businesses that will Temporarily Profit from Supplying the Mining Industry While Simultaneously Risking the Permanent Poisoning of the St Louis River Watershed, Including Lake Superior
This column will point out and try to de-mystify some of the often-perplexing developments in the decades-long debate concerning allowing foreign mining corporations (which could justifiably be considered “Undocumented Aliens”) to invade water-rich northern Minnesota in order to extract our state’s non-ferrous metal deposits – for the selfish enrichment of its foreign shareholders and management, none of whom really care about the long-term consequences to the state’s precious water resources.
The CDC is now taking notice that a significant number of dentists have died in a relatively short period of time at one Virginia care center.
The fact that a significant number of deaths at the care center were from dental professions sparked suspicions.
CNN reports what is known so far on the dentist deaths:
A cluster of cases of a progressive lung disease occurred among dentists and other dental workers treated at one Virginia care center, according to Thursday’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reportfrom the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Of nine patients, referred to as a cluster, seven died during the reported 16-year period. The disease, calledidiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, is a chronic, progressive lung disease with a poor prognosis. The cause is unknown.
A cluster is a term used to define a collection of cases “grouped in place and time that are suspected to be greater than the number expected,” Dr. Randall J. Nett, lead author of the study and medical officer with the US Public Health Service, explained in an email.
Out of 894 patients treated for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis at the Virginia hospital, nine patients were pegged as dentists or dental techs. That may not seem like a high amount – only 1% – but that is “about 23 times higher than expected,” Nett said.
All of them were men, with an average age of 64. While the actual cause of this cluster hasn’t been identified yet, the hazards of the dental profession itself are definitely under suspect now. There are about 650,000 dental personnel throughout the nation.
One of the surviving cluster patients reported polishing dental appliances and preparing impressions without using a mask or other protection, according to the report. During these tasks, a dental worker would have been exposed to silica and other compounds with known or potential respiratory toxicity.
“At this time, we do not know what caused this cluster of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis cases in dental personnel,” said Nett, who recommended that workers “wear certified respiratory protection” if the ability to improve ventilation is not practical or effective.
