WELLNESS-The quest for low calorie sweeteners has led to the creation of chemicals that sweeten drinks and foods but that simply don’t break down in our bodies which is why these chemicals don’t fatten the people up that are consuming them. The problem is that much of these compounds go right through the consumer and into our water supply.
The world’s rivers and lakes are loaded with artificial sweeteners such as Splenda, Sweet’N Low and Aspartame in a converted form. These sweeteners are a dangerous problem facing our environment today for two main reasons. First we are drinking this water as it comes around for a second time through the water cycle and second, the fish are living in these chemicals and there is evidence that they are taking these chemicals into their tissues.
The Canadian Journal Plus One published the study proving that these 4 sweeteners cyclamate, saccharin, sucralose, and acesulfame not only pass through humans without being properly broken down, but also through advanced wastewater systems that are designed to remove chemicals from our water. After this sewage is treated, much of it is released back into our water supply through rivers and tributaries. It turns out that this fresh water is now anything but.
In the study, researchers collected water from homes near the Grand river, which empties into Lake Erie and found all of the above mentioned sweeteners coming out of the tap. We have all heard about antidepressants in our water supply and how that is affecting the fish’s ability to reproduce. In regards to sweeteners in the water scientists still don’t know the full impact in regards to the health of the fish. Nor do they know exactly how damaging it will be to humans to eat these fish that are contaminated with chemicals used to sweeten foods.
The idea of our water supply being contaminated with the chemicals and sweeteners that we consume should not surprise us. We live in a delicate ecosystem and everything we eat and drink will eventually become a part of that system.
While it is tempting to compartmentalize everything and think we can keep certain parts separate from others, it doesn’t work that way in nature, nor in our bodies. If someone gets an infection in their toe for example, rest assured that over time it would infect their entire body.
The earth is the same way. We can’t pollute and destroy certain parts of the world and think it will stay isolated to that part. Earth is a big ecosystem with the entire planet being interconnected through an intricate web of waterways and jet streams in the air and the ocean. Science is helping us grasp this idea of an interconnected earth.

(NaturalNews) California's green living delusion is collapsing by the day. As the drought worsens, and lawns everywhere have turned to crispy brown dead zones, desperate residents are hiring companies to spray paint their lawns green.
As California is mired by its fourth year of drought, one industry has sprouted up from the seemingly endless dry spell.
In an effort to brighten up dry and unsightly lawns, some landscapers have been offering the innovative solution of painting lawns green.
LawnLift... is now a leading provider of lawn paint for homeowners, hoteliers, wedding planners and others who want to change the look of their drought-stricken grass.
Just what we need: More chemicals in the shrinking water supply
With lawns now being spray painted green, California cements its newfound role as the capital of delusional green living where the "green" comes from spray paint laced with chemical pigments.
If it ever does rain again in California, all that fake green will be washed right down the drain, further contaminating the dwindling water supply with yet more chemicals... on top of all the chemotherapy drugs, antidepressants, painkillers and cocaine already found in California's water supply thanks to the mass over-medication of the population.
The LawnLift company, by the way, says its green paint product is entirely non-toxic. But I can't find any ingredients listed anywhere on its website.
The company's FAQ document, which is riddled with hilarious typos, says things like:
Lawnlift uses expensive UV protected nontoxic binders to insure [sic] the products stays green and last longer.
The Completion: [sic] Never actually binds to the grass, runs off with water application and rubs off on everything.
LawnLift says, "LawnLift is not harmful to pets that have ingested grass treated with it," but its own MSDS says its product "May cause respiratory tract, eye and skin irritation."
That same MSDS explains why the company isn't willing to tell you what's actually in it: "The composition of this material is a trade secret."
In other words, you're supposed to spray it on your lawn and have it wash down the sewers with the next rain even though they won't tell you what it contains! Somehow this is especially fitting in a state where Nancy Pelosi once claimed we should all pass Obamacare so we can someday find out what's in it.
Perhaps LawnLift really is totally safe, but we won't know until the company reveals the ingredients. The company says "Lawnlift is a naturally occurring pigmented dye that is 100% safe for the environment and 100% biodegradable where as [sic] the other guys sell and apply toxic latex paint that will choke out any chance of life and is not safe for anyone to play on!"
Then again, I've seen natural protein companies make all sorts of false and deceptive claims on their own labels, too. By default, I don't trust companies that refuse to disclose their ingredients.
The Disneyfication of Fakifornia
Spray painting lawns green is the perfect metaphor for what's happening in California at every level. It's the "Disneyfication" of the state, where everything from politics to public health policy has collapsed into a state of total theater and desperate fakery.
This is not to blame its citizens, of course, many of whom are totally fed up with their own lying government, corrupted state Senators, mindless entitlement spending and police state control over their lives. Many activist citizens of California are fighting hard to restore their state to the greatness it once celebrated, but they are thwarted at every turn by disastrously wrongheaded bureaucrats like Gov. Jerry Brown who just can't help turning the state into a real-life example of the movie Idiocracy.
Determined to further plunge the state into public health chaos, the California Senate voted today to pass SB 277 which would eliminate nearly all vaccine exemptions, thrusting the state into the role of the autism capital of America.
No doubt there's some California bureaucrat ready to sell more government debt bonds to fund an "autism jobs creation program" that would hire the new wave of autistic children to spray paint lawns green. This, of course, would be proposed as an example of the government's amazing compassion for children -- the same children the government is poisoning with toxic vaccines.
Welcome to Fakifornia, where the green lawns are fake, public education is fake, medical "science" is fake, the right of a woman's medical choice is fake, the state budget is fake, the Hollywood faces are fake, the news is fake and the factory foods sold at the grocery store are fake.
There are a lot of amazing, REAL people in California -- many of whom are my personal friends -- but even they are getting fed up with the fakery and looking for exits.
That's why I am now publicly predicting a tidal wave of medical police state refugees and drought refugees fleeing California in search of water and dignity.
California is on the verge of ecological collapse, fiscal collapse and a massive collapse of the public trust in failed government. You would all be wise to watch this from afar rather than being stuck in the middle of it when all the fakery hits the fan. If you live in Collapsifornia right now, pick up your feet and scoot!
As a friend of mine is fond of saying, "When the s#!t hits the fan, try not to be standing in front of the fan!"
A new warning has come to NASA from the Inuits. They are warning that the change in climate is not due to global warming but rather, because of the Earth shifting a bit.
The Inuits are local people that live in the Arctic regions of Canada, the United States and Greenland. They are excellent weather forecasters and so were their ancestors. Presently they are warning NASA that the cause of change in weather, earthquakes etc, are not due to global warming as the world thinks
They state that the earth has shifted or “wobbled”. “Their sky has changed!”
The elders declare that the sun rises at a different position now, not where it used to previously. They also have longer daylight to hunt now, the sun is much higher than earlier, and it gets warmer much quickly. Other elders across the north also confirmed the same thing about the sky changing when interviewed.
They also alleged that the position of sun, moon and stars have all changed causing changes in the temperature. This has also affected the wind and it is very difficult to predict the weather now and according to them predicting weather is necessary on Arctic.
All the elders confirmed that the Earth has shifted, wobbled or tilted toward the North.
This information provided by the Inuit Elders has caused a great concern in the NASA scientists.
A recent video provides tangible proof of what the Intuit Elders have been saying all along. Our magnetic north and south poles have been moving along very swiftly, especially in recent years. It is hypothesized that one of these poles will end up somewhere near the Bermuda Triangle and the South Atlantic anomaly when the flip occurs.
It is not yet understood what this means for humanity, but I’m quite sure this would, at the very least, affect all migratory animals and insects, along with all compasses and GPS systems and satellites, thus affecting all airlines, cars, and maps that rely on that technology.
Magnetic records have revealed that the last magnetic pole shift occurred approximately 780,000 years ago while a magnetic pole shift, on average, occurs once every 200,000 to 300,000 years.
When any animal or insect is affected by a major change or mass die off, we’re ALL affected.
One of the lessons we came here to experience is how to learn from the cycles of time. Unfortunately, we don’t have any records of what happened 780,000 years ago and how it affected mankind, along with all other living species on this planet.
It’s quite possible that we’re receiving extraterrestrial assistance in preventing a catastrophe from happening because the last pole shift should have occurred over 400,000 years ago. As evidenced by numerous paintings throughout history, our planet has been visited by extraterrestrials for thousands of years, if not longer.
I live near the Gulf of Mexico and have no fear about a magnetic pole shift and what will happen. I also have no plans on moving anytime in the near future. We are all spiritual beings having a human experience, so once you realize that you never truly die, there’s nothing left to fear.
