Food WARNING: High levels of heavy metals found in gluten-free foods — NaturalHealth365 – July 29, 2019

(NaturalHealth365) Gluten is a type of plant protein found in certain grains like wheat, rye, and barley.  But, for many people with poor digestion, gluten-free foods can trigger serious health problems – especially if they are contaminated with heavy metals!

As a little background: gluten-free foods have been shown to increase inflammation in the gut; disturb moods; and decrease overall energy – even if you don’t test positive for a gluten intolerance.  Understandably, many people now go to the grocery store with a gluten-free food list to minimize their exposure to this potentially harmful substance.

Chlorpyrifos: Playing Pesticide Politics with Children’s Health — Collective Evolution – July 27, 2019

(Collective-Evolution)

Chlorpyrifos—described by some as “the most dangerous pesticide you’ve never heard of”—is an insect-killing organophosphate. Organophosphates trace their roots back to Nazi-era IG Farben nerve gases; contemporary scientists still describe the compounds as “junior-strength nerve agents that have a mechanism of action comparable to sarinDow Chemicalthe company that helped bring the world mustard gas during World War I and napalm and Agent Orange during the Vietnam war—is the manufacturer of chlorpyrifos-containing insecticides.

85 pesticides BANNED around the world, yet 25% of these toxic poisons get used by U.S. farmers — NaturalHealth365 – July 10, 2019

(NaturalHealth365) Truth be told: eating organic foods won’t guarantee that you’re avoiding the consumption of all pesticides. Pesticide residue can be found in the air we breathe and the water we drink.  And, thanks to ‘spray drift’ – pesticides are also contaminating organic foods, according to a study by the United States Department of Agriculture.

A List of Children’s Foods That Are Contaminated With Monsanto’s Cancer Causing Roundup Herbicide — Collective Evolution – July 9, 2019

(Collective-Evolution) It’s very confusing as to why poison is still being sprayed in our environment, and how anybody could ever justify the use of these poisons. Justification has come from mass brainwashing, marketing campaigns, and just downright deception. There are many examples of deception when it comes to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide. A great example comes from Europe, where the product was recently re-licensed and approved by European Parliament. However, MEPs found the science given to them was plagiarized, full of industry science written by Monsanto. You can read more about that here.  Another example would be the corruption that plagues our federal health regulatory agencies, which have been completely compromised by big corporations. There are several other great examples that illustrate this point, in fact there are decades of examples. One of the best would be the SPIDER papers. A group called the CDC Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence and Ethics in Research, or CDC SPIDER, put a list of complaints in a letter to the CDC Chief of Staff and provided a copy of the letter to the public watchdog organization U.S. Right to Know (USRTK).

The real reason why sugar weakens your immune system — NaturalHealth365 – July 9, 2019

(NaturalHealth365) The use of refined sugar has skyrocketed in America – and its overconsumption has placed an enormous burden on the immune system.  Yet, the news you’re about to read is never mentioned in the lamestream media.

Historically speaking, in the early 1800s, the average American’s sugar consumption hovered at a modest few pounds over the course of an entire year.  But, now, yearly sugar intake has soared to 155 pounds!  There’s no doubt: this increase is directly connected to horrible health outcomes.
