    Popular oat cereals, oatmeal, granola and snack bars come with a hefty dose of the weed-killing poison in Monsanto’s Roundup, according to independent laboratory tests commissioned by EWG. These new findings come days after a California jury awarded $289 million to a school groundskeeper who claimed Roundup gave him lymphoma. EWG’s tests found glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, in all but two of 45 samples of products made with conventionally grown oats. More than two thirds of the samples had glyphosate levels above what EWG scientists consider protective of children’s health with an adequate margin of safety. About one-third of 16 samples of foods made with organically grown oats also had glyphosate, all at levels well below EWG’s health benchmark. Glyphosate may get in organic oats by drifting from nearby farm fields, or cross-contamination in a processing facility that also handles non-organic foods. Glyphosate has been linked to cancer by California state scientists and the World Health Organization. The California case that ended Friday was the first of reportedly thousands of lawsuits against Monsanto. These suits have been brought by farm workers and others who allege that they developed cancer from years of exposure to Roundup.

    As we have previously reported here at Health Impact News, the medical kidnapping of America's elderly is a $273 BILLION industry. Medical kidnapping of senior citizens occurs when a doctor, usually a psychiatrist, deems that the senior can no longer take care of themselves, and gets a judge to sign an order of "guardianship" or "conservatorship" to someone working for the State. This state-appointed guardian then comes in and seizes all of their assets, and keeps them a prisoner locked up in a mental facility, most of the time against the wishes of their family members. This epidemic in the U.S. is even a larger problem than child medical kidnapping, as state-appointed guardians currently have 1.3 million elderly people nationwide under their control. The few stories we have covered here at Health Impact News regarding seniors medically kidnapped represent just a tiny fraction of what is going on all across the U.S. every single day. Attorney Mark Nestmann has written an article that was published on LewRockwell.com giving people practical advice on how to oppose these adult medical kidnappings: Protect Yourself from America’s Corrupt Guardianship System.

    Type 1 diabetes—also called insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) or juvenile diabetes— is one of the most common and rapidly increasing autoimmune diseases in children. The U.S. has more children with type 1 diabetes than any other country in the world, with a prevalence in children and adolescents that grew by 21% from 2001 to 2009. The U.S. also has the highest number of new cases annually, well ahead of India (with a population four times bigger). Puzzling over the dramatic rise of type 1 diabetes in young children over the past several decades, scientists are reaching consensus that environmental factors play a significant role. Two of the most widely discussed environmental candidates are dietary factors and viral infections. In light of the hypothesis that viruses can be precipitating factors, it has appeared logical to at least some researchers to consider whether live virus vaccines also could be contributors, particularly given the temporal association between expansion of the childhood vaccine schedule and the escalating type 1 diabetes rates.

    A new review published this month (August, 2018) in the Journal Brain Sciences looked at the effectiveness of the ketogenic diet to treat adult epilepsy, adult malignant glioma (brain tumors), and Alzheimer’s disease. It was written by Tanya J. W. McDonald and Mackenzie C. Cervenka from the Department of Neurology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The review is titled "The Expanding Role of Ketogenic Diets in Adult Neurological Disorders." The aim of the review is to describe the evidence, preclinical and clinical, supporting Ketogenic Diet use in the management of adult epilepsy, adult malignant gliomas (brain tumors), and Alzheimer’s disease. Several randomized controlled trials support the use of Ketogenic Diets for the treatment of drug-resistant epilepsy and there is emerging evidence that these diets are also effective in treating refractory status epilepticus, malignant glioma and Alzheimer’s disease in adults.

    Here in Montana we are fortunate have a veterinarian who graduated from vet school in the early 1950s, and who can basically cure a horse of strangles within 24 hours. Strangles is streptococcus equi., and it causes the lymph nodes in the neck to swell, which can cut off the horse's air supply. This vet's IV treatment is tetracycline, dexamethasone, and Vitamin C, delivered in large doses. Ten years ago, my three horses contracted this very contagious equine disease from new horses in the pasture to our north. They quickly became very ill and totally gunked up with thick, green mucus. However, after the medications plus Vitamin C were injected into their veins, they were 95% better the next day. I followed up with a sulfa drug for ten days. This is the only veterinarian I have heard of who uses IV Vitamin C.


    Regarding daily Vitamin C use in humans, I recommend very educational Suzanne Humphries', MD, video: "Vitamin C Basics." It's available on YouTube.

    Can you please give us the name of the vet? You can either post your reply here, or leave a comment in the contact form at infusionScientific.com. We are developing a way to make their treatment much easier, effective, and accessible, and are looking for partners. Thanks!

    Just like pharmaceutical drugs, there is an unholy alliance among the CDC, FDA, and the medical device industry, which manages annual revenues of over 300 billion dollars worldwide. The USA accounts for around a third of that revenue. (Source) The motivation is constantly for new and improved devices despite any safe, adequate performance of older, similar equipment. New devices mean more revenue from recent patents and the marketability of that comes with impressing doctors of the latest medical technology. FDA pre-market approval (PMA) for medical devices only requires one favorable study. Pharmaceutical drug studies require two favorable studies. These studies are conducted or supervised by the pharmaceutical companies that are then reviewed by FDA officials. A medical device company can conduct ten trials that have terrible results except for one, just as pharmaceutical companies select two for FDA review with drug trials. Those are the only ones the FDA sees. A new documentary, The Bleeding Edge, shows the rarely confronted darker side of the medical device industry that creates iatrogenic illness and death. The documentary follows the stories of several people who had their health ruined by FDA-approved medical devices that probably never should have been approved in the first place.

    There have been several studies from countries outside the U.S. that show the health virtues of coconut oil for Alzheimer's Disease. Meanwhile, pronouncements from the USA’s Alzheimer's Association and medical press releases, warning against using coconut oil, have persisted. These international studies conclusions fly in the face of our “expert” opinions that, as a saturated fat, coconut oil threatens heart health. This misinformation continues even as medical practitioners of all types are realizing that the lipid theory of heart disease as the leading contributor to poor heart health is simply not true. The most recent study was published on July 20th, by the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease. This human study was conducted by academic researchers in Valencia, Spain, and titled Improvement of Main Cognitive Functions in Patients with Alzheimer's Disease after Treatment with Coconut Oil Enriched Mediterranean Diet: A Pilot Study. This was a remarkable study, as there were measurable improvements among Alzheimer's patients in 21 days from adding coconut oil to a Mediterranean diet.

    A report published earlier this month (July, 2018) by Belgium's Federal Commission for Euthanasia Control and Evaluation states that doctors assisted with the "suicides" of three minor children since the country's parliament voted to lift age restrictions on euthanasia. The minors were 9, 11 and 17 years old, according to the report. Their conditions ranged from muscular dystrophy to brain tumors to cystic fibrosis. The conditions of all three were determined to be terminal, and euthanasia was approved unanimously by the Belgium's euthanasia committee. In 2017, a doctor resigned from Belgium's euthanasia commission, alleging that the committee had euthanized a demented patient who had not formally requested to die. This begs the question, can a minor child, especially a handicapped one, be expected to make such an important decision as to end one's own life? Or are these "physician-assisted" suicides simply a way to murder children who are deemed not useful to society?
