Aerial Spraying and Autism

NaturalNews dated 3 May 2016 brings information on an increase in autism in areas which have been receiving aerial spraying since 2003.   The article goes on to say:


Scientists reached their findings after they observed a 25 percent increase in autism and developmental disorders among children living in areas where aerial spraying for mosquitoes has been used since 2003, according to the study, titled "Aerial Pesticide Exposure Increases the Risk of Developmental Delay and Autism Spectrum Disorder."

Researchers "identified a swampy region in central New York where health officials use airplanes to spray pyrethroid pesticides each summer. The pesticides target mosquitos [sic] that carry the eastern equine encephalitis virus, which can cause swelling of the brain and spinal cord," reports the American Academy of Pediatrics

Pesticides and Fungicides connection to Autism

NaturalHealth on 15 April 2016 advise that “Scientist discovers pesticides, fungicides lead to neurodegeneration in test subjects”


The article goes on to say:

 “[Mark Zylka, PhD], a member of the UNC Neuroscience Center, and his group found that these chemicals reduced the expression of genes involved in synaptic transmission – the connections important for communication between neurons. If these genes are not expressed properly, then our brains cannot function normally. Also, these chemicals caused an elevated expression of genes associated with inflammation in the nervous system. This so-called neuroinflammation is commonly seen in autism and neurodegenerative conditions.

The researchers also found that these chemicals stimulated the production of free radicals – particles that can damage the basic building blocks of cells and that have been implicated in a number of brain diseases

Fracking Chemicals

NaturalNews on 20 February 2016 headlines

Over 1,000 toxic chemicals found in fracking water

This is an excerpt from the article.  Please click this link to read the complete article.

“How toxic is fracking?

The researchers identified 1,021 chemicals used in the process of hydraulic fracturing. The significant amount of wastewater created, as well as the contamination of underground water reserves, can lead to disastrous consequences. There is absolutely no way to prevent any of these chemicals from reaching the places where our drinking water comes from.

240 of the analyzed substances were already known for their effects. Focusing on this "small number," the scientists identified 157 substances associated with reproductive toxicity or developmental toxicity. In other words, these are 157 different ways in which you or your spouse could become infertile. Your children will also be irreparably affected by these chemicals. Cadmium, lead, chlorine, mercury, arsenic and benzene, are just a couple of the substances that kill newborns.

If a child's immune system deals with the initial contamination, they face a staggering risk of showing abnormal development. This is far from an isolated case or a sporadic occurrence. Tap water is contaminated by hydraulic fracturing on a daily basis, while the environment is constantly polluted by carcinogenic substances.”

Are you a candidate for drugs!

What can the public believe when it comes to clinical studies?


Click the link to read the article.   The article advises:


“Recently, CTV reported that data from a clinical trial was misrepresented, and now the research community is renewing their resolve to have the true findings of thousands of abandoned or misrepresented studies published.”


In the meantime it is anticipated that cancer will have annual increments.

Is fracking harming our children and pets?

GreenMedia on 1 December 2014 brings us an article on the “Real Cost of Fracking”. 


The article goes on to say:


“Many fracking chemicals are known carcinogens, endocrine disruptors or other classes of toxins (Colborn et al. 2011). Bamberger and Oswald's studies, carried out during the ongoing fracking boom, uncovered serious adverse effects including respiratory, reproductive, and growth-related problems in animals and a spectrum of symptoms in humans that they termed "shale gas syndrome". Ultimately, their research led them to consider fracking's broader implications for farming and the food system (Bamberger and Oswald 2012 and 2014).”


Current Health News  believes it would probably be a very good idea to purchase Michelle and Robert’s book to learn what they have uncovered.

Marilyn Vine asks you:

“Don’t you think we should be asking questions of world governments as to why in 2014, and remember it is only just the end of May 2014 and we have another six months to go, all these animal deaths are occurring around the world.”  

You only have to look at the massive number of fish to understand the implications of the food chain for the people in these areas.    Please click this link to read the data and if this doesn’t concern you then nothing will!

Exposing Flawed Medical Research

Current Health News page brings you information from NaturalNews dated 27 January 2011 with regard that medical research is being proven to be mostly flawed!    To me, this is a most alarming revelation as the average person relies on their doctors to have accurate information to advise them in their time of need.   It is even more alarming when you read that disproved research is still being quoted by doctors as being valid 12 years after it has been proved to be invalid!

Scroll down the page and read the two articles on Dr Andrew Wakefield.    Dr Wakefield was deregistered as a medical practitioner based on information that came from the British Medical Journal!

How to use soft drinks to kill mice and rats!  

If you have a problem with mice or rats, one way to get rid of them is with soda pop.  Mice and rats lack the ability to burp. You can use this to your advantage. Simply pour Pepsi or Coke into a shallow dish, and place the dish near where the mice or rats are entering your home. The rodents will drink the sweet soft drink and later, when they can't burp, they will die.  Right next to walls usually works best for any type of bait or traps, as does under sinks, where they may like to hide out, or underneath your stove.   As the carbonation only lasts just so long, you will need to keep that in mind and refill your dish accordingly. Try putting a new dish down each night before bed. 

Medicine’s Dirty Little Secret

What an interesting article!   If people knew these statistics and the side effects of what they are taking I wonder how many of them would actually make the decision to continue?  There's one medical statistic doctors don't much talk about despite its importance. It's called number needed to treat, or NNT. It’s a measure developed in the past 20 years, and it’s one of the best-kept statistical secrets in medicine.

The idea of NNT is simple enough. Most clinical trials look at how much better people do on a particular medicine. NNT answers the question: How many people have to take a particular drug to avoid one incidence of a medical issue (such as a heart attack, or recurrence of cancer)? For example, if a drug had an NNT of 50 for heart attacks, then 50 people have to take the drug in order to prevent one heart attack.  For more information click on this link.

Mom’s diet may influence baby gender 

Current Health News page brings information from Dr Mercola dated 13 May 2008 on what a woman eats before pregnancy may play a role in whether the baby is a boy or a girl, according to surprising new research.  Women who have a hearty appetite, eat a lot of potassium-rich foods like bananas, and don’t skip breakfast appear more likely to have a boy. Previous studies have also shown that male embryos do best with longer exposure to nutrient-rich lab cultures.  It could be that more nutrients are needed to build boys than girls. Women who ate at least one bowl of breakfast cereal daily were 87 percent more likely to have boys than those who ate no more than one bowlful per week, a possible sign that they were skipping breakfast.

Thousands have been harmed by lasik eye surgery   

Current health news page brings information from Dr Mercola dated 15 May 2008 that patients harmed by Lasik eye surgery recently told federal health advisers stories of severe eye pain, blurred vision and even a son's suicide. The advisers recommended that the government warn more clearly about the risks of the popular operations.  About 700,000 Americans a year undergo the elective laser surgery. Of those, several thousand suffer serious, life-changing side effects, such as worse vision, severe dry eye, glare, and inability to drive at night.
