‘Freedom Industries’, the company behind the West Virginia chemical spill into the tap water of 300,000 West Virginia residents has admitted that the water is now contaminated with chemical 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol.

West Virginia has less than 1.9 million residents which over the last few days, 300,000 of them have not been able to use their tap water because of a major chemical spill. So far, few people have been hospitalized and several hundred thousands of them remain without water for drinking, bathing or cooking. The spill happened just few days ago, when 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol (a chemical for processing of coal) leaked into Charleston’s local water supply from a plant located on the Elk River ...freedom-industries-west-virginia-struggles-with-poverty-huge-chemical-spill-4-Methylcyclohexane-Methanol

Lead poisoning: the silence menace. Is your child safe? High levels of lead found in soil of homes and schools nearby Vernon plant in California.

Lead is one of deadliest heavy metals that commonly exist in lead-base paints (especially paints of homes built before 1978), furniture, car’s lead-acid batteries, air, fluorinated water, lead piping system (especially older homes), soil contaminated with lead, pesticides and chemicals, drugs, skincare products and cosmetics (many popular lipsticks have lead), imported wines, lead glassware, crystal dishes and canned foods. Long term exposure to even small traces of lead can cause a wide range of health problems. Keep in mind that lead cannot be excreted though our digestive system and as a result, the organs in the body absorb lead directly from the blood and store lead along with other minerals including calcium in bones ... lead-poisoning-toxic-level-of-lead-in-soil-of-homes-near-Vernon-battery-recycling-plant

The healing power of silver and ingredients in skincare products and burn creams like silvadene

The main ingredient in Silvadene that has made this cream a great remedy for treating burns and cuts is natural Silver and Sulfadiazine. Although food and drug administration hasn’t recognized silver as safe (such an irony when other petroleum derivatives and known carcinogen are considered GRAS=Generally Regarded As Safe by the same agency), silver has been used medicinally for thousands of years as a natural antibiotic to fight infections and diseases. Although the healing power of colloidal silver is mainly suppressed in US by giant Pharmaceutical companies and regularity agencies like FDA, the US military (in some months) purchases over 1,000 gallons of colloidal silver to fight off against viruses and bacteria for soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq as well as protection against Asian flu/viruses ...ingredients-in-burn-creams-silvadene-silver-sulfadiazine

What the mainstream media calls ‘Collateral Damage’ isn’t going to happen thousands of miles away from home in villages of Pakistan or Afghanistan; the attack is right here, on US land, against the American public

USDA is moving forward with approval of ‘Agent Orange Corn’ that's resistant to toxic herbicide 2,4-D. USDA is giving green light to chemical company Dow that is planning to plant, market and sell the new varieties of genetically modified corn and soybean that are resistant to toxic chemical 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D). 2,4-D, is one of the main ingredients of Agent Orange that was used during Vietnam war against the Vietnamese and cambodian civilians. Now, 2,4-D is once again pushed into the market as an herbicide by the chemical company Dow. The other ingredient of ‘Agent Orange’ known as Dioxin is regarded as ‘the most toxic and poisonous small molecule on the planet’ by many scientists ... usda-moves-forward-with-approval-of-agent-orange-corn-soy-resistant-to-toxic-herbicide-2-4-D

Aluminum is a cancer-causing neurotoxin widely used in skincare products (antiperspirants or deodorants), food additives, vaccines and medications

Did you know that millions of people eat, wear and use products that have tons of harsh chemicals and heavy metals in them? Aluminum is one of these toxic chemicals that’s widely used in thousands of consumer products including cosmetics, antiperspirants or deodorants, shampoos, soaps, body lotions or creams, medications including various drugs (antacids and aspirin) or vaccines, drinking water, and foods made with aluminized baking powder, self-rising flour, and salt (this could be a wide range of food products including microwave popcorn, salty snacks, coffee creamers, pizza crust. pastries (including doughnuts, muffins, cookies or cakes), pancakes, pickles, bread (including corn, carrot or banana bread), fried foods, canned foods, dipping sauce, and foods wrapped with aluminum foil or foods made in aluminum cookware) ... aluminum-cancer-causing-neurotoxin-used-in-skincare-products-antiperspirants-deodorants-foods-drugs

Skin is the largest organ in our body. It is a living and breathing organ that’s constantly regenerating new cells. We would never use products that have tons of harsh chemicals for an organ like our heart, but millions of women and even men expose their face and skin to many skincare products that have tons of toxic chemicals. We have spent the last few weeks talking about toxic ingredients in cosmetics, moisturizing creams, popular burn creams like Silvadene, or one of the top selling anti-aging creams (supermodel Cindy Crawford signature cream) called Meaningful Beauty products ... cancer-casuing-chemicals-toxic-ingredients-in-deodorants-antiperspirants

foods-high-in-antioxidants-that-can-fight-aging

The subtle energy of your food becomes your mind. Find out about foods that are high in antioxidants and fight aging

After decades of extensive research, many nutritionists and researchers believe that more than our genetics, our chosen lifestyle can accelerate aging. According to research, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is the body’s most powerful natural antioxidant enzyme that plays a critical role in reducing the oxidative damage and inflammation. To slow down aging process, new cells must constantly be replaced with the old or dying cells. But as people age, there are not enough new cells to replace damaged or dying cells ... foods-high-in-antioxidants-that-can-fight-aging

The US Supreme Court gives legitimacy to Monsanto’s abuse of power over organic farmers and local producers and how the American judicial system isn’t just broken and unjust, but the entire agenda is to ‘legalize crime’ and ‘institutionalize corporate injustice”

The lawsuit was meant to protect farmers from Monsanto’s patent on GE seeds and the fact that Monsanto has been suing hundreds of farmers when their native crops have been contaminated with Monsanto’s Frankenseeds via cross contamination. Over the last decade, the giant biotech Monsanto has filed over 140 lawsuits against farmers who supposedly were planting GE crops without Monsanto’s permission or paying Monsanto its biotechnology fee ...us-supreme-court-denies-farmers-protection-from-Monsanto

Most processed vegetable oils are toxic. Benefits of Grapeseed oil and how even grapeseed oil could contain cancer-causing chemicals like Hexane depending on manufacturer.

Many people might think that vegetable oils is healthy since they are made from vegetable food sources. However, the reality cannot be further from the truth, since many of the processed vegetable oils contain toxic chemicals or are made from food sources that have been genetically modified. I’m referring to processed oils like soybean oil, margarine, safflower oil, canola oil (rapeseed), corn oil that were not a part of our diet until early 1900s. These days, it’s no longer cost effective (i.e. hugely profitable) for the manufacturers to extract oils from natural food sources by simply pressing or separating them ... Seattle Restaurants

New study suggests that Monsanto’s popular weedkiller Roundup is linked to fatal kidney disease (CKDu)

According to a new study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s best selling herbicide ‘Roundup’ could be linked to fatal chronic kidney disease that has been affecting poor farming regions around the globe. Researchers suggest that the active ingredient in Roundup known as glyphosate is toxic on its own, but not toxic enough to cause fatal kidney disease. However, according to RT, researchers have discovered that glyphosate becomes highly toxic when mixed with ‘hard’ water or heavy metals like arsenic or cadmium that naturally exists within the soil or it’s added as fertilizer. Keep in mind that hard water contains metals such as calcium, magnesium, strontium, and iron, among others including bicarbonate, carbonate, sulphate and chlorides ... Seattle Restaurants

New genetically modified potatoes Manufactured by J.R. Simplot Co. could end up in McDonald’s French fries

Millions of Americans who eat in fast food restaurants are so much in love with McDonald’s fries that they could almost taste French fries by just thinking about them. Like any other addiction (such as addiction to drugs, cigarettes or alcohol), people are addicted to salt, fat and sugar. Adding salt and sugar gives junk foods flavor and taste. They also trigger the center of the brain so people feel sudden pleasure after consuming sugary or salty snacks. The junk food industry designs the right combination of fat, salt and sugar in a way to confuse your brain into thinking that there are no calories in your favorite cheetoes or French fries and as a result people can’t stop eating them ...

Studies show corn rootworms have developed resistant to Monsanto’s toxic Bt toxin

According to a recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, corn rootworm (also known as beetle larvae) has developed resistant to two separate strains of genetically modified corn. More than 94% of US corns are genetically modified and majority of them release insecticide known as BT toxin that breaks the stomach of pests and bugs with one bite. The gene of bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis has been inserted into DNA of BT corn, in order to produce toxic protein that kills bugs and pests ... corn-rootworms-have-developed-resistant-to-Monsantos-toxic-Bt-toxin
