Daisy Luther, Contributor, ZenGardner.com

This the season for the flu shot propaganda machine to rev into high gear, as Big Pharma, the CDC, and the mainstream media urge people to roll up their sleeves and have toxins like mercury and formaldehyde injected into them, all in the name of “staying healthy this winter.”

There’s a much easier way to stay healthy that also involves toxins – the ones in our food supply. Only I recommend avoiding them instead of injecting them directly into your body.

If you consume processed foods on a regular basis, you’re forcing your immune system to work to protect you against the things you are ingesting, instead of fighting off viruses and germs.

Many people thoughtlessly poison themselves every single day. They have some white sugar and fluoride in the morning coffee. They have some MSG-laden, highly salted saturated fat at lunch and wash it down with a neurotoxic, artificially sweetened drink. Dinner gets picked up at a convenient drive-thru window, and it’s enriched with more MSG and some GMO high fructose corn syrup. Don’t even get me started on that late night snack in front of the TV. Most of what typical Americans eat can hardly even be considered actual food.

This isn’t just some far-fetched conspiracy theory.  A recent study published in the Nutrition Journafocused on the effects of a junk food diet on the human immune system. Dr. Ian Miles, a physician at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, concluded that ingredients such as refined sugars, salt, saturated fat, artificial sweeteners, gluten, and genetically modified foods, all negatively impacted the human body, and led to to increased inflammation, reduced control of infection, increased rates of cancer, and increased risk for allergic and auto-inflammatory disease. On top of that, beneficial cut bacteria is disturbed, leading to a more vulnerable immune system.

The bottom line is, when you’re poisoning your system instead of nourishing it, you are working at cross-purposes with your body.

Here are the things to avoid if you want to stay healthy:

Hydrogenated fat

These are the highly processed “bad fats”.  Anything that says “hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated” is a fat that has been processed to add hydrogen. This keeps the fat hard at room temperature and works as a cheap, less perishable substitute for butter in processed foods. The increased rigidity in these fat molecules causes them to get “stuck” in your arteries, and can lead to heart disease, cancer, and decreased immune function. The World’s Healthiest Foods, a not-for-profit website, explains further:

Unsaturated fats have various wavy or zigzag forms (called “cis-” forms) that contribute to more flexible arteries and other body structures. Hydrogenated fats also have bent molecular shapes, but hydrogenated fats are bent in the mirror-opposite direction (which is why they are called “trans-” forms) of naturally occurring unsaturated fats. For this reason, hydrogenated fats are difficult for the body to “grab onto” and metabolize, and can neither be incorporated into cell structures nor excreted in the normal fashion. Thus, hydrogenated or “trans-” fats tend to remain “stuck” in blood circulation, becoming oxidized and most importantly, contributing significantly to an increased risk for cardiovascular disease and possibly also cancer.

Cottonseed, palm, soy, and corn oils are the most common hydrogenated fats. Margarine is also frequently made from hydrogenated fats.

Refined sugar

The bottom line is: refined sugar inhibits phagocytosis. This process that you may never have heard of is your immune system’s secret weapon. Encyclopedia Brittanica defines phagocytosis:

Living cells called phagocytes ingest or engulf other cells or particles. The phagocyte may be a free-living one-celled organism, such as an amoeba, or one of the body cells, such as a leukocyte (white blood cell). In some forms of animal life, such as amoebas and sponges, phagocytosis is a means of feeding; in higher animals phagocytosis is chiefly a defensive reaction against infection and invasion of the body by foreign substances (antigens).

The particles commonly phagocytosed by leukocytes include bacteria, dead tissue cells, protozoa, various dust particles, pigments, and other minute foreign bodies.

Renowned pediatrician Dr. Bill Sears discussed the immunity-sapping effects of processed sugar on his website.

Eating or drinking 100 grams (8 tbsp.) of sugar, the equivalent of two- and-a-half 12-ounce cans of soda, can reduce the ability of white blood cells to kill germs by 40 percent. The immune-suppressing effect of sugar starts less than thirty minutes after ingestion and may last for five hours. In contrast, the ingestion of complex carbohydrates, or starches, has no effect on the immune system.

You can still indulge your sweet tooth with healthier options like honey, maple syrup, or minimally processed organic sugar (but never, never artificial sweetener – see the next entry!)

Artificial sweetener

The FDA doesn’t seem to agree, but artificial sweeteners are incredibly toxic. Currently approved are saccharine, aspartame, sucralose, neotame, and acesulfame K. Despite their approval by the FDA, these highly processed additives are regarded with great suspicion.  Studies show direct correlations to cancer, neurological issues, digestive problems and negative impact on gut flora. One artificial in particular, sucralose, causes the thymus gland to shrink, which can directly impact the immune system, according to Modern Alternative Health.

Research has shown sucralose can cause shrinking of the thymus gland, an important immune system regulator, and liver and kidney dysfunction. A recent study by Duke University found sucralose reduces healthy intestinal bacteria, which are needed for proper digestion and can impact the effectiveness of prescription and other drugs.

Dr. Joseph Mercola also points the finger at sucralose (aka Splenda):

The theory that Splenda may be a culprit in the rise of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) appears to be a reasonable one, echoing the results from a 2008 study published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health,2 which discovered that Splenda:

  • Increases the pH level in your intestines, and
  • Reduces the amount of good bacteria in your intestines by 50 percent!

In the featured paper, the author states that sucralose has a potent inhibitory effect on your gut bacteria and inactivates digestive protease. It also alters gut barrier function. All in all, this may help explain the pronounced increase in IBD in Canada since its introduction into the food supply.

Believe me, if you keep destroying up to half of your gut flora by regularly consuming Splenda, then poor health is virtually guaranteed! Making matters worse, most people are already deficient in healthy bacteria due to excessive consumption of highly processed foods, which is why a high quality probiotic supplement is a good idea for most people. If you add sucralose to an already unbalanced intestinal tract, health problems are very likely to ensue…

GMOs

Genetically engineered ingredients are in more than 80% of the processed offerings on grocery store shelves. Big Agri and the FDA insist that these items are not hazardous to your health, but many, many studies disagree. These studies aren’t the ones that are touted all over mainstream mouthpieces like Forbes Magazine, however, because there’s a vast amount of money to be made from GMOs.

Back in 2009, the Institute for Responsible Technology rang the warning bell with regard to GMO ingredients:

On May 19th, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) called on “Physicians to educate their patients, the medical community, and the public to avoid GM (genetically modified) foods when possible and provide educational materials concerning GM foods and health risks.”[They called for a moratorium on GM foods, long-term independent studies, and labeling. AAEM’s position paper stated, “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. They conclude, “There is more than a casual association between GM foods and adverse health effects. There is causation,” as defined by recognized scientific criteria. “The strength of association and consistency between GM foods and disease is confirmed in several animal studies.”

…Among the population, biologist David Schubert of the Salk Institute warns that “children are the most likely to be adversely effected by toxins and other dietary problems” related to GM foods. He says without adequate studies, the children become “the experimental animals.”

Since there is no law requiring that GMO foods bear a warning label, the best way to avoid them is to limit processed foods, know the most likely GMOs (corn and soy), and look for the Non-GMO Verified label.

MSG

This popular additive can be found in…well, pretty much everything. It “enhances flavor” to make the cheapest ingredients seem delicious.  MSG can increase the production of histamines (an allergic/immune response) and also increases inflammation. Not everyone is allergic to MSG, but on varying levels, most people are sensitive to it. There’s a direct link between histamine production, inflammation, and a weakened immune system. MSGtruth explains:

Recent research from Johns Hopkins links nervous system overstimulation to the immune response.  Immune response includes the release of histamine and white blood cells.  The  immune response allows the blood vessels to become “leaky” so that the white blood cells can get to the site of the injury.  This flood of fluid leaving the blood vessels and entering the tissue is what we recognize as swelling.

Fluoride

If your community “supplements” tap water with fluoride, it may be decreasing your immune function.  The following excerpts are from a study published in the journal Complementary Medical Research.

“Fluoride is one of the most toxic inorganic chemicals in the Earth’s crust, but it is believed that at a concentration of 1ppm, or 1m g/mL in public water supplies, and at the concentrations used in dental preparations, it is both safe and beneficial to teeth. However, with increasing experience, doubts about both safety and efficacy have arisen. While there is evidence of harm to the stomach, kidneys, thyroid, bones and teeth at higher concentrations, evidence for harm at concentrations around 1m g/mL is controversial. A possible link between fluoridation of public water supplies and an increase in the cancer death rate has been debated for over 20 years and there is now no doubt that fluoride can cause genetic damage.

…concentrations of fluoride of 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 20.0 ppm significantly inhibit the ability of leukocytes to migrate after incubation for 3 hours at 37° C.

The immune system is our first line of defense against attack whether from the outside from bacteria, viruses and other parasites, or from within, from the spontaneous generation of potentially cancerous cells. Any agent which affects the ability of the immune system to function efficiently either by a direct toxic effect or by interfering with the release of cytokines will tend to reduce the resistance of the population to infection as well as increasing the susceptibility to cancer and immune depressed states such as the post-viral fatigue syndrome and AIDS. The effect on individuals already suffering from such immune-depressed conditions is likely to be serious.

Instead of getting needless vaccinations, avoid consuming immune system aggressors.

We live in a society that is always searching for easy, immediate gratification. We have pills to make us happy, pills to make us calm, pills to make us thin, pills to relieve pain, pills to wake us up, and pills to help us sleep. There are a lot of ways to avoid getting sick that don’t include popping a pill or getting a needle shoved in your arm, but many folks never consider taking those extra steps. It astonishes me that avoiding these ingredients causes people to consider my eating habits “extreme” but toxic chemical medications are perfectly normal and acceptable.

Before lining up for your flu shot or other “highly recommended” vaccine, put in the extra time and effort to remove these immune system aggressors from your diet. When your body isn’t busy fighting off neurotoxins, carcinogens, and good-tasting poison, you’ll be amazed at how effective it becomes at fighting off things like the flu or the common cold.

Now that you know what NOT to eat, next we’ll talk about what you SHOULD be eating to boost your immune function.

Why You Should Ditch the Flu Shot and Do This Instead Tags: Medical Fascism natural health activism vaccines

by PAUL FASSA
RealFarmacy.com

The CDC’s (Centers for Disease Control) annual Orwellian “flu season” brainwashing fest is about to begin. Flu fear mongering and alarming flu statistics will soon be bombarding the air waves, a massive Big Pharma media marketing blitz masquerading as science with one purpose: to drive the American people to unthinkingly roll up their sleeves and get the toxic flu jab.

The media in conjunction with the CDC will ratchet up the public’s fear with almost daily worst case-scenario flu outbreak advisories while simultaneously pushing the solution: Big Pharma’s unproven flu vaccine.

Is there really such a thing as a Flu season? Spring, summer, fall and winter; these are real seasons. There are no other seasons. The flu season is a ruse. It’s a marketing ploy that was invented by “Madison Avenue” to sell vaccines.

But what about those nasty invisible germs that are conspiring at the same time each year to target and infect you? Those super flu bugs that travel halfway around the world and miraculously manage to kill the same number of people in the USA year after year?

A Closer Look at the ‘Flu Season’

To insure maximum vaccination compliance, official statistical pronouncements like the etched in stone 36,000 annual deaths from the flu will be trotted out again and again. The subtext is clear: You could die from the flu; after all 36,000 hapless people die every year and you could be one of them. Not to fret though, we have the answer; we can save you, but only if you get your flu shot ASAP.

Here’s a little secret the CDC does not want you to know. The 36,000 annual deaths from flu figure is manufactured; a total myth; a lie. The CDC created this annual bogus death toll by surreptitiously lumping both flu and pneumonia deaths into one tidy category. Their logic was based on the convenient assumption that pneumonia deaths stem from complications of the flu. That assumption is absurd. Pneumonia has a number of documented causes.

A 2005, report published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ online) by Peter Doshi, PhD, blew the lid off the CDC’s claim that 36,000 died from the flu annually. After careful analysis Doshi revealed, “Between 1979 and 2001, [CDC] data show an average of 1348 [flu] deaths per year (range 257 to 3006).”

He arrived at the figures by separating out so called flu deaths from pneumonia deaths. So called flu deaths because an analysis of the 2001 flu and pneumonia deaths data showed only 18 people actually died from the flu. Only 18 were confirmed to had have a flu virus. [1]

The Annual Flu Shot is a Big Pharma Money Making Racket

“There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine, thus far developed, is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway.” – FDA former Chief Vaccine Control Officer Dr. J. Anthony Morris.

Cautionary Tale

Dr. Anthony made this candid pronouncement during the infamous fake 1976 “swine flu” epidemic scare. That’s when the authorities relentlessly urged fearful and compliant Americans into getting a swine flu vaccine, as they claimed it was the only way Americans could protect themselves from this deadly flu bug. The result of the 1976 vaccination campaign was tragic to say the least.

President Ford receives a swine flu inoculation

“The pharmaceutical industry convinced President Gerald Ford to give them legal immunity from the Swine Flu vaccine which was rushed to market in 1976, and to lead the PR campaign to convince Americans to get the vaccine. More people died from the vaccine than from the flu.”

Millions of terrified Americans believed the hype and rolled up their sleeves. The result was that more than 500 people developed Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), a severe paralytic disease after the shot and at least 300 people died from vaccine injuries. [2]

There were over 4,000 reported adverse events from the vaccines, which forced the campaign to shut down within a year. Of course these are only reported adverse effects from the vaccine, we will never know the full extent of vaccine injuries. Worse yet, the flu epidemic was a dud; it never materialized. But that was then. Surely things have changed for the better regarding Flu vaccines. Not really.

For example,  in 2009 Desiree Jennings, a Washington Redskins cheerleader suffered a paralyzing nerve disorder called dystonia 10 days after receiving a seasonal flu shot at a local drug store. To add insult to injury a concerted effort was made to discredit her story. [3]

News clip of Desiree’s healing process with holistic MD Dr. Bashard:

Powerful Profile of a Another Flu Vaccine Victim:

The Vaccine Injury Law Project is a team of lawyers who specialize in flu vaccine injuries. They state on their website: Both the swine flu (H1N1) vaccine and the more traditional flu shot have been associated with causing the following serious, long term adverse effects: [4]

* Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS)
* Severe allergic reaction
* Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP)
* Brachial neuritis
* Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM)

“According to the Department of Justice, the flu vaccine is the most dangerous vaccine in the U. S. based on settled cases for vaccine injuries.”

The last report issued in 2013 by the Department of Justice (Vaccine Court), for compensation made by the Health and Human Services for people injured or killed by vaccines, was released in December 2013, covering the period of 8/16/2013 through 11/15/2013.

There were 139 claims settled during this time period, with 70 of them being compensated. So, just over 50% of the claims filed for vaccine damages were compensated during this period.
Once again, the greatest percentage of damages compensated were for the influenza vaccine, and most of those were for Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS).

Yet these facts, tucked away in a file on the Department of Health and Human Services website, are never reported in the mainstream media. So we will report them here. Of the 70 cases compensated, 42 of them were for the flu vaccine, or 60% of the cases settled where compensation was awarded for injury or death due to the vaccine.  [5]

Why do drug companies push the flu vaccine? “It’s all about money,” says Dr. Russell Blaylock, retired neurosurgeon and author of several books. “Vaccines are a pharmaceutical company’s dream. They have a product that both the government and the media will help them sell, and since vaccines are protected, they can’t be sued if anyone has a complication.” [6] Have you ever looked at what is actually in a flu vaccine?

Flu Vaccine Exposed: Think Twice!

Healthier Options

It’s not that there’s a ‘flu season’ per se; more realistically, it’s that there are lots of people with weakened immune systems from a variety of reasons and weak immune systems have a difficult time making the transition from a warm season to a cool season. Moreover, less time spent outdoors and less exposure to sunshine can lead to a decrease in vitamin D production.

Each year more studies are solidifying the link between low vitamin D levels and the onslaught of colds, influenza and other respiratory tract infections. In fact, Vitamin D blood levels are at their lowest point during the so-called flu season. Vitamin D is effective as a flu preventive. Some also claim it works well as a treatment option. [7]

TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) has a different take on the “flu season” and the reasons why many people succumb to colds, flu, and other respiratory problems at that time. It has to do with the change of seasons and the status  of ones immune system.

According to TCM: “It takes energy to shift from one season to the next and if the body’s immune system is already slightly weakened, a cold, virus or allergy has a better chance to take hold.” [8]

Instead of toxifying your body with a dangerous and unproven vaccine, why not support and strengthen your immune system and “inner terrain.” A quote from Dr. Robert Young’s  book Sick and Tired? explains  succinctly what really causes disease.

“If I could live my life over again, I would devote it to proving that germs seek their natural habitat—diseased tissue— rather than being the cause of the diseased tissue; e.g., mosquitoes seek the stagnant water, but do not cause the pool to become stagnant.” – Rudolph Virchow (Father of Pathology)

In his book Quantum Healing, Dr. Deepak Chopra, MD, shares a study where the influenza virus was isolated and implanted directly onto the mucous membranes of a group of subjects, and only 12% of them got the flu. The study clearly demonstrated that a strong immune system and the inner terrain is the key to health and prevention of disease. [9]

Start by avoiding processed foods and eat a mostly organic, whole food, plant based diet that’s nutrient rich. Maintain a healthy gut; 80% of immunity is in the digestive tract [10]

Be sure to include food based probiotics as part of your daily routine preferably a DIY kefir beverage. Many people find they need to boost their digestive fire in the fall and winter months. Swedish bitters, digestive enzymes, or sipping on warm ginger tea during a meal can be helpful.

Optimize vitamin D levels, supplement daily with adequate levels of vitamin C, eat food rich in zinc like: pumpkin seeds, spinach, oysters, nuts, and beans. Get sufficient rest. Stay hydrated. Minimize stress and be sure to incorporate some form of exercise into your daily routine.

Signs of Ebola: Animated deaf interpreter at NYC press conference goes viral Tags: EBOLA Health USA

Signs of Ebola: Animated deaf interpreter at NYC press conference goes viral

While an Ebola news conference should have been grabbing the headlines, a sign language translator stole the show. The signer has now gone viral on social media, with some even questioning whether he was a legitimate interpreter.

The media conference was headed by New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and health officials, who were giving updates on the city’s first case of Ebola on Friday. However, as the officials continued, attention started to be diverted to a man sitting on the very left of the platform.

The man was there to provide a sign language translation and he managed to get very animated as the speeches went on, underlining the severity of the problem. At one point, it seemed as though he was communicating with another signer, who was sitting in the audience.

It was not long before the public started to take notice and took to social media in their droves to comment on the unusual interpreter.

This is not the first time that has signer has grabbed the headlines at a major event. At Nelson Madela’s funeral in December 2013, South African Thamsanqa Jantjie appeared on stage and proceeded to conduct fake sign language gestures during the dignitaries’ speeches - including by US President Barack Obama - in an event that was watched by 95,000 mourners at Soccer City stadium in Johannesburg and millions around the world.

"There was zero percent accuracy. He couldn't even get the basics right. He couldn't even say thank you," Delphin Hlungwane, a South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters.

Jantjie later claimed he was suffering a schizophrenic episode at the Mandela memorial service.

South African broadcaster, eNCA investigations, discovered that Jantjie, who is receiving treatment for his schizophrenia, has also faced rape (1994), theft (1995), housebreaking (1997), malicious damage to property (1998), murder, attempted murder and kidnapping (2003) charges.
