Health News Stories - Joys of Being Healthy

What a fantastic tool websites are!

Health News Stories has given Marilyn Vine the opportunities she always wanted and have never had!  At my time of life it is a fantastic feeling.  So many new adventures have opened up for me and this has given me a totally new lease on life!

The internet, and this website in particular, have given me the opportunity to share my passion for health with like minded people.  The opportunity bring health articles to people’s attention and quite often to be able to offer solutions that enable you to work from home.   I do and I love it.

Most of us like to keep abreast of health news and Health News Stories page enables me to pass on the information that I am reading from a myriad of sources.    I have been following these issues since 1996 and the more I learn the more I want to learn! I have enjoyed putting together this page and I hope you enjoy it too! In fact I have found so much information that it has been necessary to start new pages!

I am sure we all would like to experience the joys of being healthy. In Health News Stories we learn that people with Diabetes type two run the risk of cardiovascular damage on average 15 years earlier than people without Diabetes type two.

My dream and goal for the past 18 years has been to get information out to people so that they know:

  • what they are eating;
  • what happens when they use personal care and cosmetics;
  • what the consequences are of using non stick cookware,
  • the consequences of vaccination (many pages shown in the menu bar on this topic)

Fraudulent Science Papers from Pharmaceutical Manufacturers

NaturalNews on 25 May 2016 has produced an article blowing the lid on fraudulent science from pharmaceutical manufacturers.   An excerpt from the article:


"In 2009, around fourteen thousand women who developed breast cancer while taking Prempro, a hormone replacement therapy (HRT), sued the drug's manufacturer, Wyeth," wrote Rupert Sheldrake in an extraordinary book called Science Set Free.


In court, it turned out that many of the medical research papers supporting HRT had been ghostwritten by a commercial medical communications company called DesignWrite, whose website boasted that over twelve years they had "planned, created and/or managed hundreds of advisory boards, a thousand abstracts and posters, 500 clinical papers, over 10,000 speakers' bureau programmes, over 200 satellite symposia, 60 international programmes, dozens of websites, and a broad array of ancillary printed and electronic materials." It emerged that DesignWrite organized a "planned publication programme" for Prempro, consisting of review articles, case reports, editorials and commentaries, using the medical literature as a marketing tool.


As Ben Goldacre reported in the Guardian: DesignWrite wrote the first drafts and sent them to Wyeth, who advised on the creation of a second draft. Only then was the paper sent to the academic who would appear as the "author" … Design Write sold Wyeth more than 50 peer-reviewed journal articles for HRT, and a similar number of conference posters, slide kits, symposia, and journal supplements. Adrienne Fugh-Berman (an associate professor of physiology at Georgetown University) found that these publications variously promoted unproven and unlicensed benefits of Wyeth's HRT drug, undermined its competitors, and downplayed its harms … [A]cademic journal publications are not regarded as promotional activity, so all this was legal. Worst of all was the complicity of the academics… "Research shows high clinician reliance on journal articles for credible product information," said Design Write. They're right: when you read an academic paper, you trust it was written by the person whose name is on it.

How does your doctor keep up with current trends?

IHealth Tube advises:  Your physician likely spent a number of years in school to become a doctor. But how do they stay up to date on the latest health information? Information which certainly changes rapidly. Former pharmaceutical sales representative Gwen Olson talks about where doctors get the 'latest' information. Something that should concern you!

Cancer is not genetic

NaturalNews seeks litigation lawyer

On 14 July 2014 Mike Adams advised that NaturalNews was seeking a litigation lawyer to take a class action against Whole Foods Market due to their non-action with removing heavy metals out of their foods.   Some of the heavy metals measured in the NaturalNews laboratory have been 2000 times higher than the allowable limit.      Read the article and if you know some company will to take on an action like this please let them know.

Monsanto strikes again!
Cancer rates soaring

Health News Stories Page brings a NaturalNews report dated 5 July 2014 where genetically modified crops are grown and there is heavy usage of chemicals that the cancer rates are twice as high as the national average.   This is according to a report by the Ministry of Health of Cordoba Province in Argentina.

"Once again, what we have complained about for years was confirmed," said Medardo Avila Vazquez of the University Network for Environment and Health (Reduas), "and especially what doctors say about the sprayed towns and areas affected by industrial agriculture. Cancer cases are multiplying as never before in areas with massive use of pesticides."

Scientific research and Anthrax

Dr Mercola provides information dated 9 July 2014 with regards to scientific research being undertaken in laboratories and just how safe are we, the public, from human error with regards to these studies.  Here are some of the highlights from this article:

  • “Between June 6 and June 13, as many as 84 scientists and staff members at a US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) biolab were exposed to live anthrax
  • The anthrax sample was supposed to have been inactivated prior to transfer to a lower biosecurity facility, but for a variety of reasons it wasn’t dead on arrival
  • In 2004, a lab in Maryland accidentally sent live anthrax to a California children’s hospital
  • In the 1979 Sverdlovsk incident, 94 Russians were exposed to anthrax through an accidental release, and 64 of them died
  • Incidents such as these raise questions about” experts’” ability to contain the lethal microorganisms being studied (and created) in labs around the world “

Health News Stories believes that we should all be monitoring this situation.

Lowering your blood pressure

Aviation fuel still containing lead!

NaturalNews on 13 June 2014 brings yet more information on what is happening in our skies that have consequences for our planet and in particular the health of our soil.     This has such a disastrous roll-on consequence for us all.   It affects:

  • the air we are breathing
  • the rain that falls from the sky and if we have tanks – into our tanks – into the water we are drinking
  • the soil our food is grown in
  • the fruit and vegetables that extract this toxic heavy metal into their growth
  • the fruit and vegetables with abnormally high levels of lead contained in them
  • our children being found with high levels of lead in their blood and this being associated with ADD/ADHD and disruptive behaviour

If I was a scientist then I probably could make this list so much larger but I think you get the general picture.  Most countries have removed lead from their petrol and we can purchase here in Australia a lead-free petrol.  This was done due to the known emissions coming from cars and the harm it was doing.

SO why has the World Health Organization, the Governments from different world countries stepped in and said to the Aviation Industry – ENOUGH IS ENOUGH – and if you can’t remove lead from your aviation fuel then you can’t fly over our country!

Just in case you don’t know the implication of lead NaturalNews tells us:

“Lead is a highly toxic heavy metals that causes bone diseases, brain damage and cancer. Chlorine is a highly-reactive chemical with powerful oxidative properties. The fact that both are being sprayed daily into the air above America is inexcusable.”

I have sent a request through to Mike Adams to see if he can get an international petition going to stop putting lead into aviation fuel.      Perhaps when you read the article you could do the same.  If enough of us ask for something to be done then maybe with his resources he could achieve something.   Health News Stories Page urges you to do something to rectify this situation.

Butter is better!

Spread throughout this website is Marilyn Vine’s recommendation on using butter instead of artificially provided spreads.  I have always maintained that the artificial spreads were dangerous due to the fact that the ingredients were heated to high intensity and thus become carcinogenic.    Now read what Green Media on 30 April 2014 have to say about using this product.

Health News Stories brings a link of Mercury to autism

3 March 2013 NaturalNews brings a recently published study from the Polish Journal Acta Neurobiologiae Experimentalis which raises new and pertinent questions about the link between mercury toxicity and autism.    The paper identifies 20 parallels between mercury poisoning and autism.  Listed below are just a few of these:

  • intracellular degeneration,
  • neuroinflammation,
  • brain immune response activation,
  • oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation,
  • reduced glutathione levels (which incidentally is being found in people with Parkiinson’s Disease)
  • mitochondrial dysfunction,
  • pathological changes of blood vessels,
  • decreased cerebral and cerebellar blood flow, and
  • increased levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines in the brain, as well as many others.

Not so joyful story
but a very important one regarding
Neurological disorder, MMF

On 18 December 2012 NaturalNews brings information with regard to scientific proof that vaccines may cause MMF.  The article goes on to say:

It is a little-known condition that can trigger persistent and debilitating symptoms similar to those associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) and fibromyalgia, but is also one that the medical profession at large is still unwilling to acknowledge. And yet emerging research continues to show that macrophagic myofasciitis, or MMF, is a very real condition brought about as a direct result of vaccines that contain aluminum adjuvants, which become lodged in muscle tissue and lead to severe neurological damage and other problems.”

I have also read that aspartame can trigger symptoms that mimic multiple sclerosis and also SLE Lupus.  Take the time to read Mike Adam’s information it just may answer some of your own questions with regards to a personal problem.  Also click on the link for aspartame information.

Is the United States the Country we think it is?

The more information that is coming out of America via multiple alternative media sources leaves me with strong doubts as to whether I would want to reside in the United States or for that matter even visit the country!

Now Health News Stories have received information dated 27 September 2011 with regards to the State of Chicago.   The Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, is trying to put in place a mandatory plan for its city employees to enroll in a “wellness” program which will be controlled by conventional medicine.  If these city employees decline to be enrolled then they will be hit with a surcharge of $50 per member of their family under their insurance program.     Is this how democracy works?  

Continual put-down of natural therapies

I am grateful to be able to get my message out to people using my Health News Stories website page.  Nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing people exhibit the joys of being healthy.

Natural Therapies are continually in the headlines being discredited. Health News Stories gives me the opportunity to tell the other side of the coin.   It is often said that scientific studies have not been undertaken to verify the results that people experience.  Maybe there have not been the scientific studies but some of the herbs that are used, and Maca is a prime example - this herb has been used by the Peruvian people for over 3,000 years.  Do you think the Peruvians would have continued to use a herb that did not work?  I don't believe they would - I believe that they would have found something else to replace it. 

I hope that when you read Health News Story that you understand the need to ask yourself questions when you see studies discrediting natural therapies.

  • Who has paid for the study to be undertaken
  • Who in fact is the person who has undertaken the study.
  • What are their affiliations or connections (i.e. their loyalties).
  • Have they used "natural" or the actual herb or have they conducted their tests using synthetic ingredients.

A good example of this is d-alpha-tocopheryl - this is the natural form of Vitamin E.  When you see it shown as dl-alpha-tocopheryl then you know that the herb is a synthetic form of Vitamin E.   Not only does this form not give the desired results but in some cases it can actually be harmful for you to use.  This is another reason for me to produce this website page, Health News Stories.

Arthritis can be managed with diet and exercise

Health News Stories:  Many people with arthritis automatically reach for pain medication, but it is not always necessary to do so. There are other solutions that work just as well, or even better, for both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.  For instance, a variety of supplements -- including bromelain, essential fatty acids, and glucosamine -- can be beneficial for arthritis. But the best supplement of all is proper food. Proper, nutritious food has yielded health effects that surpass any supplement. 

New Zealand Coroner’s Report into deaths caused by natural health medicines

Dr Wallace Bain, Acting Chair of the Coroners' Council, has just released this report into deaths caused by natural health medicines in New Zealand.  He highlights the information in light of the push by the New Zealand government for greater control over natural medicines by way of legislation to create the Australia New Zealand Therapeutics Products Authority (ANZTPA).

Review raises questions over aspartame and brain health

Excessive intake of aspartame may inhibit the ability of enzymes in the brain to function normally, suggests a new review that could fan the flames of controversy over the sweetener.  The review, by scientists from the University of Pretoria and the University of Limpopo and published recently in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, indicated that high consumption of the sweetener may lead to neurodegeneration.

Do you really need eight glasses of water a day?

A review of the benefits to health of drinking lots of water has concluded that whilst athletes and people who live in hot climates can do better with an increased fluid intake it appears that for average healthy people more water does not necessarily mean better health.  Click on the link below for more information and comments on this article.

Do you know what plastic recycling symbols mean?

Perhaps after reading this article we may be able to recycle our plastics better.  Click on the link and read what The Daily Green’s Handy Guide on the Various Types of Plastics that we use in our everyday lives. 

A review of studies dealing with the healthy benefits of drinking lots of water concluded that, while athletes and people in hot, dry climates do better with increased fluid intake, for average healthy people, more water does not mean better health.   There is little evidence for or against any of the supposed benefits of extra water, such as increased toxin excretion, improved skin tone, lessened hunger, and reduced headache frequency.

Health News Stories urges people to know what is in their drinking water because drinking copious quantities of fluoridated water would be extremely harmful.   Even chlorine in your drinking water causes harm!

Health News Story Brings information on Autism

In Marilyn’s page on Vaccinations you can scroll down to read the article “Government Concludes Vaccines Caused Autism”.   I believe this is such an important article.   I personally believe that the mercury contained in vaccines is implicated in this tragedy.  You hear so many stories about healthy babies and children and then for no apparent reason, other than their recent vaccination, they have become dysfunctional.  I have been told that mercury lodges itself in the stomach and the brain.  I have read that chlorella is one of the few things that will remove mercury from the stomach.  I have not read anything in relation to how you would get it out of the brain.  If anyone knows of a means of doing this I would love to hear from.  Please contact me in the email box below and then I will be able to pass the information on in Health News Stories.

The following article is the tragic story of a 17 year old boy in America and what the Government authorities have done to him.  For further information

Health News Stories is pleased to bring you information on Glutathione which is the most powerful antioxidant that our body’s make naturally.

Female Heart Attacks

I was aware that female heart attacks are different, but this is the best description I've ever read.

Women and heart attacks (Myocardial infarction)

Did you know that women rarely have the same dramatic symptoms that men have when experiencing heart know, the sudden stabbing pain in the chest, the cold sweat, grabbing the chest & dropping to the floor that we see in the movies. Here is the story of one woman's experience with a heart attack.

"I had a completely unexpected heart attack at about 10:30 PM with NO prior exertion, NO prior emotional trauma that one would suspect might've brought it on. I was sitting all snugly and warm on a cold evening, with my purring cat in my lap, reading an interesting story my friend had sent me, and actually thinking,"A- A-h, this is the life, all cosy and warm in my soft, cushy Lazy Boy with my feet propped up." A moment later, I felt that awful sensation of indigestion, when you've been in a hurry and grabbed a bite of sandwich and washed it down with a dash of water, and that hurried bite seems to feel like you've swallowed a golf ball going down the esophagus in slow motion and it is most uncomfortable.

You realize you shouldn't have gulped it down so fast and needed to chew it more thoroughly and this time drink a glass of water to hasten its progress down to the stomach. This was my initial sensation--- the only trouble was that I hadn't taken a bite of anything since about 5:00 p.m.

"After that had seemed to subside, the next sensation was like little squeezing motions that seemed to be racing up my SPINE (hind-sight, it was probably my aorta spasming), gaining speed as they continued racing up and under my sternum (breast bone, where one presses rhythmically when adminstering CPR). This fascinating process continued on into my throat and branched out into both jaws.

"AHA!! NOW I stopped puzzling about what was happening--we all have read and/or heard about pain in the jaws being one of the signals of an MI happening, haven't we? I said aloud to myself and the cat, "Dear God, I think I'm having a heart attack!" I lowered the foot rest, dumping the cat from my lap, started to take a step and fell on the floor instead. I thought to myself "If this is a heart attack, I shouldn't be walking into the next room where the phone is or anywhere else.......but, on the other hand, if I don't, nobody will know that I need help, and if I wait any longer I may not be able to get up in moment."

"I pulled myself up with the arms of the chair, walked slowly into the next room and dialled the Paramedics.. . I told her I thought I was having a heart attack due to the pressure building under the sternum and radiating into my jaws. I didn't feel hysterical or afraid, just stating the facts. She said she was sending the Paramedics over immediately, asked if the front door was near to me, and if so, to unbolt the door and then lie down on the floor where they could see me when they came in.

"I then laid down on the floor as instructed and lost consciousness, as I don't remember the medics coming in, their examination, lifting me onto a gurney or getting me into their ambulance, or hearing the call they made to St. Jude ER on the way, but I did briefly awaken when we arrived and saw that the Cardiologist was already there in his surgical blues and cap, helping the medics pull my stretcher out of the ambulance.

He was bending over me asking questions (probably something like "Have you taken any medications? ") but I couldn't make my mind interpret what he was saying, or form an answer, and nodded off again, not waking up until the Cardiologist and partner had already threaded the teeny angiogram balloon up my femoral artery into the aorta and into my heart where they installed 2 side by side stents to hold open my right coronary artery.

I know it sounds like all my thinking and actions at home must have taken at least 20-30 minutes before calling the Paramedics, but actually it took perhaps 4-5 minutes before the call, and both the fire station and St. Jude are only minutes away from my home, and my Cardiologist was already to go to the OR in his scrubs and get going on restarting my heart (which had stopped somewhere between my arrival and the procedure) and installing the stents.

Why have I written all of this to you with so much detail? Because I want all of you who are so important in my life to know what I learned first hand."

Flesh Eating Parasites

Make sure that you wash all new underwear before wearing!  A friend’s brother was recently telling me of a news story he heard regarding a flesh-eating bacteria found in new clothing shipments to the USA.  These are the first pictures I have seen regarding that very subject.

After seeing the photos below, I understand the gravity of what he was telling me. This is something that is a very real and very serious concern as you will see. Ladies/gentlemen please make it a habit from this point forward to wash your just purchased undergarments before wearing them or spinning them in the dryer.

This is sensitive.  Please share with as many women and men that you know.

Our undergarments are made in different parts of the country, sit in boxes and go through many hands and exchanges before we purchase them for ourselves.


You will never guess the surprising cause of most heart attacks

Health News Stories:  Surprising case of heart attacks.  In this link you will see a video of Dr David Holt who is the leading US Physician in German New Medicine.   He explains that the conventional explanation for heart attacks may not be accurate at all.  Conflicts involving territorial loss such as losing a family member, your home, or your financial stability -- cause changes in the coronary arteries of all animals -- including humans.

And as Dr. Holt explains, those changes very often lead to heart attacks -- days or even weeks after your conflict has been resolved. 

Link between foods and cancer

Health News Stories:  It has been found that the risk of breast cancer is increased with a high dietary intake of acrylamide.  This study is the first epidemiological one which has used biological markers to measure acrylamide exposure and it is the first once to reveal a relationship of acrylamide to breast cancer.   Download the link for further information.

This could save a life

Health News Stories suggest it could even be your own.  Information on how to identify a stroke victim

On 4 December 2007 Nutraingredients reported that by consuming foods rich in antioxidants during the meal, reduces the oxidative stress associated with eating.  US Department of Agriculture Researchers have measured the blood antioxidant capacity (AOC) in a series of five clinical trials.  Their findings indicate that the consumption of antioxidant-rich foods dulled oxidative stress when people had eaten a meal rich in carbohydrates, protein and fat.

They went on to say "We have demonstrated that consumption of certain berries and fruits such as blueberries, mixed grape and kiwifruit, was associated with increased plasma AOC in the postprandial state and consumption of an energy source of macronutrients containing no antioxidants was associated with a decline in plasma AOC," wrote lead author Ron Prior in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition.

Can you be sure that your drinking water does not contain drug traces?  It has been found in Britain that the tap water contains traces of both psychiatric and cancer drugs.  Drinking the Water Inspectorate has commissioned a 100 page report.   Download the link below for further information.


Health News Stories urges everyone of us to be aware of what is contained in our drinking water as it is not always as harmless as the authorities would like us to think.

Puberty at the age of 8

Health News Stories:  Girls that are reaching puberty at increasingly younger ages, this is a sure sign that something is not right.  Some experts would rather just change the definition of what is normal instead of acknowledging that there is a problem.  Health News Stories urges you to read on to see what could be causing this to happen.  Download the link for further information.
