Scientists Link SALT To Autoimmune Diseases (Incl. Alopecia, Asthma, Eczema And MS) For First Time

Could junk food increase your risk of MS, asthma and eczema? Scientists link SALT to autoimmune diseases for first time (Daily Mail, March 6, 2013):

  • First time excess salt has been linked to these diseases, say the researchers
  • Salt appears to affect how certain cells in the immune system work
  • Mice fed a high-salt diet also had higher levels of inflammation
  • Humans did not evolve eating high-salt diets, which may be the problem

The modern diet of takeaways and microwave meals could be to blame for a sharp increase in conditions such as multiple sclerosis, say scientists.

Multiple sclerosis is one of a host of autoimmune diseases, including alopecia, asthma and eczema, where a person’s immune system attacks itself in error.

Now a team of scientists from Yale University in the U.S and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, in Germany, say salty diets could be partly to blame.

‘This study is the first to indicate that excess salt may be one of the environmental factors driving the increased incidence of autoimmune diseases,’ they said.

Global Geoengineering Programs: ‘Why In The World Are They Spraying?’ (Full Length Documentary HD)

MUST-SEE!



YouTube Added: 18.08.2012

Description:

People around the world are noticing that our planet’s weather is dramatically changing. They are also beginning to notice the long lingering trails left behind airplanes that have lead millions to accept the reality of chemtrail/geoengineering programs. Could there be a connection between the trails and our severe weather? While there are many agendas associated with these damaging programs, evidence is now abundant which proves that geoengineering can be used to control weather. In this documentary you will learn how the aerosols being sprayed into our sky are used in conjunction with other technologies to control our weather. While geoengineers maintain that their models are only for the mitigation of global warming, it is now clear that they can be used as a way to consolidate an enormous amount of both monetary and political power into the hands of a few by the leverage that weather control gives certain corporations over the Earth’s natural systems. This of course, is being done at the expense of every living thing on the planet.

EPA Delays Boiler Regulations by One Year, Puts Thousands of Lives at Risk

EPA Delays Boiler Regulations by One Year, Puts Thousands of Lives at Risk (EARTHJUSTICE, June 24, 2011):

With new timeline for boiler health protections, EPA endangers lives and flouts court’s authority

Washington, D.C. — Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced it will issue final standards to control toxic air pollution from industrial boilers by April 2012, more than a year after a federal court ordered the agency to finish the process. The delay places thousands of lives at risk and will saddle the American public with disease and economic burden that could have been avoided had the agency acted according to the court’s decision.

Below is a statement from Earthjustice attorney James Pew:

“By EPA’s own account, the practical result of this one year delay will be the death of as many as 6,500 people. The delay will also cause thousands of heart attacks, asthma attacks, and emergency room visits and hundreds of thousands of missed days of work and school due to illness caused by uncontrolled air pollution.”

“This delay is both a violation of the Clean Air Act and the decision made by a federal court that EPA had to finish these critical health protections last February. The agency’s unilateral choice to ignore these authorities is audacious and dangerous to the public’s health.”

Study: Infants Treated With Antibiotics Up to 52 Percent More Likely To Develop Asthma And Allergies

Antibiotics paralyze mitochondria activity. Mitochondria are the power plant of the cell.

Antibiotics destroy the intestinal flora, causing the entire immune system to get out of balance.

What does western medicine have besides antibiotics, cortisone and painkillers?

Oh, I forgot: Scalpels, radiation and chemotherapy.

“Just look at us. Everything is backwards; everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the major media destroy information and religions destroy spirituality. “
– Michael Ellner


IT MAY seem hard-hearted for a doctor not to prescribe an antibiotic to a sick baby, but a new study by scientists at Yale offers new reason for caution.

One of the great public health mysteries is why asthma has become more common among children, even as air pollution has decreased and fewer parents are smoking. One possibility is that antibiotics have kept infants’ immune systems from developing properly, making them vulnerable to asthma and allergies later on. The Yale study, published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, supports this hypothesis.

Researchers found that infants treated with antibiotics in their first six months were up to 52 percent more likely to develop asthma and allergies by age 6 than babies who did not get antibiotics. This result buttressed scientists’ suspicion that early use of the drugs can cause imbalances in the immune system and a poor allergic response.

There already were good reasons not to prescribe antibiotics. Often, they don’t work; many common ailments are caused by viruses, which aren’t affected by antibiotics. (Doctors may prescribe antibiotics anyway, just in case.) Moreover, the overuse of these drugs — in patients young or old — can lead to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. If the new study holds up, doctors will have to weigh any slight benefit against the risk of harm to infants over time.

Dispelling the Myths Surrounding Homeopathy

(NaturalNews) In this article, I would like to dispel a plethora of myths surrounding homeopathy which have been used to discredit this highly efficacious healing art and science. Homeopaths are given few opportunities in the media to defend their profession, so a lot of misconceptions abound. The medical profession in general presents a fierce and blinkered opposition, yet as Big Pharma is learning of all sorts of amazing cured cases, they are determined to stamp out competition via EU regulation.

Swimming in chlorinated pools increases asthma risk five-fold

And drinking chlorinated water – much better if it is fluoridated too – is even “better” for your health.
_________________________________________________________________________

Children who swim regularly in chlorinated pools are five times more likely to develop asthma, research has found.

Swimming is recommended as a good form of exercise for asthmatics because the warm humid air is less likely to trigger attacks than other physical activities.

But mounting research is suggesting that the chlorine used to keep the pools clean could be contributing to the development of the condition.

Researchers in Belgium studied the effects of swimming in outdoor pools regularly from a young age and found a strong link.

Previously the same team have found that indoor pools may also increase the risk of asthma in children.

Bee Propolis: Nature’s Healing Balm With Immune Boosting Properties

(NaturalNews) Bee propolis is a remarkable natural substance collected and produced by honeybees. It is often referred to as a natural antibiotic and has many diverse uses. I love it when nature clearly has the upper hand over the frailty of our human science. Bee propolis is one such substance and has even been described as having anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and even anti-cancer properties with immune modulating effects. These may sound a little too good to be true but you can’t go wrong with a bottle of bee propolis in your medicine cabinet. As a natural remedy it will be incredibly useful for at least it’s anti-viral effects.

What is Bee Propolis?

Propolis is a resinous substance that bees collect from trees and plants. Bees use it as a natural antibiotic to protect their hive and as defence against disease in the hive. They do this by using it as a seal over foreign matter so that it does not pollute the hive as well as for creating doorways. It is made up of waxes, resins, fatty acids and amino acids. Hundreds of chemical properties have been identified in propolis and this differs from hive to hive as well as with the environment the bees live in and the time of day the propolis was collected. This makes propolis exceedingly complex which is why no one has attempted to synthesise the product. It is natural and cannot be patented and therefore research into the substance is limited regarding its clinical benefits.

Propolis has long been used as a natural remedy and it is thought that it’s the numerous flavonoids which it contains that account for its wound healing benefits. Some studies suggest that it may be used against bacteria and viruses and other microorganisms when applied to infected areas topically. Propolis has anti-microbial action on both gram-positive and gram-negative micro-organisms. It contains constituents that increase membrane permeability and inhibit bacterial motility. It is commonly used for wound infection and other illnesses.

Anti-viral and Immune Boosting Effects

A study was done on the effects of bee propolis on Recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis (RAS) — also known as canker sores — at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Canker sores are an ulcerative disorder of the oral cavity. They have no cure and medicine used to prevent further outbreaks and relieve pain comes with its own set of dangerous side-effects. Bee propolis was evaluated as a potential remedy to reduce the number of mouth ulcer outbreaks. There were two groups of patients, one group who took a placebo capsule and the other group who took a propolis capsule. Patients who took the propolis capsule showed a significant decrease in the number of outbreaks of mouth ulcers. Another great effect of the propolis was that the patients reported a definite improvement in their quality of life. This would likely be due to the immune boosting effects that propolis has with its high levels of B-vitamin complex and notable quantities of vitamin C, E, and beta-carotene.

Propolis had shown anti-inflammatory action and has been used to treat arthritis as well as allergies and asthma. It has even been shown to be effective against MRSA, the antibiotic resistant bacteria that is affecting many hospitals. People who are allergic to bees should however use propolis with caution as an allergic reaction to the substance could occur. Recent studies have shown that there may be a place for trying propolis on skin cancer but these were test tube studies and not done on humans so trying this as a remedy for skin cancer should be done with the co-operation of your preferred health practitioner.

The Water Cure: An interview with Dr. Batmanghelidj

A NaturalNews Special Report by Mike Adams

Discovery of the water cure

Mike: Welcome everyone, this is Mike Adams with Truth Publishing, and today I’m very excited to be welcoming Dr. Batmanghelidj, author of Water For Health, For Healing, For Life. Welcome, Dr. Batmanghelidj.

Dr. B: Thank you very much for inviting me to be on the air with you and giving me the opportunity of sharing my thoughts on the future of medicine in this country.

Mike: I think there are many, many people who have read your books. People are intrigued by the idea that water can be a therapy, a healing substance for the human body. What is it about water? How did you first become aware of these healing properties of water?

Dr. B: Well, it’s very bizarre. As you know, I’m a regular doctor, an M.D. I had the honor and the privilege of being selected as one of the house doctors, and I had the extreme honor of being one of the last students of Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of penicillin. I mention his name so that you know I was immersed in medical school and research. And some years later, I had to give two glasses of water to a person who was doubled up in abdominal pain from his disease, because I had no other medication to give him at that moment. And he was in excruciating pain, and water performed miraculous relief for him. It gave him relief — within three minutes his pain diminished, and within eight minutes it disappeared completely, whereas he was doubled up eight minutes before and he couldn’t even walk, he completely recovered from that situation. And he started beaming from ear to ear, very happy, asked me what happens if the pain comes back? I said, “Well, drink more water.” Then I decided to instruct him to drink two glasses of water every three hours. Which he did, and that was the end of his ulcer pains for the rest of the duration that he was with me.
