Tobacco: The Other Side of the Story

We all know for a fact that cigarettes cause cancer. It’s not even a debate. And everyone knows that nicotine is bad for you and tobacco causes lung cancer, right? Well, we’ve been smoking tobacco for thousands of years.  Yet only recently have we added all these additives and chemicals, which begs the question… Does tobacco cause cancer? Or is it the chemicals that cause cancer, and not the tobacco itself? This is the other side of the story Does Tobacco Cause Lung Cancer? Dr. Victor Buhler, Pathologist at St. Joseph Hospital in Kansas City: “I have examined thousands of lungs both grossly and microscopically. I cannot tell you from examining a lung whether or not its former host had smoked.” (link) Nearly 80% of people diagnosed with lung cancer now, in 2012, are non-smokers Share53PinTweetShare53 Shares

12 Rules for Food

Here are a few quick dietary recommendations, twelve rules to eat by. If you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it. If you can’t put it IN your body, don’t put it ON your body! (lotions, sunscreen,deodorant, etc) If your food comes from an animal, it’s probably okay. If the food is made in a plant, don’t eat it. If it IS a plant be very careful. Plants aren’t all they’ve been crocked up to be. We’ve been misled. Take what the so-called experts say and reverse it. If your great grandmother didn’t eat it, don’t even think about it. Whenever you see the label “Fat Free” or “Low Fat” think Chemical Shit-storm. Count chemicals, not calories. When diet is wrong medicine is of no use. When diet is correct medicine is of no need. He that takes medicine and neglects diet, wastes the skill of the physician. –…

Health Dangers of a Plant-Based Diet

By Kevin Stock To claim there are health dangers with a plant-based diet flies in the face of conventional wisdom. It’s surely heresy among nutrition experts. These experts tell us we need to eat fruits and vegetables for their essential vitamins and minerals. Their potent antioxidants ward off aging and cancer. And their fiber cleans our tubing, keeping our intestines and arteries clean.   Could there really be health dangers to a plant-based diet? Contrary to popular belief, plants don’t have human health as their top priority. Like all organisms, they are more concerned about their survival than ours. In fact, protecting themselves from predators like humans is high on their priority list. And since plants can’t fight us off with fangs or flee with their feet they’ve evolved other mechanisms to deter predators. Health Dangers of a Plant-Based Diet: Plant Poison Directory In this series we are going…

The DIEt Deception: How Vegetarianism Turns You Into A Vegetable

“Eat your vegetables”, we’re told, “They’re good for you” they say. This is all we’ve ever heard from mom, dad, doctors, and nutritionists the world over.  Fruits and vegetables are healthy and fat is bad. It’s as simple as that. If you disagree you are either unsympathetic to all those innocent animals that die for your insatiable thirst for dead flesh, or just plain dumb and don’t understand dietary science. The science is settled, meat causes cancer, cholesterol clogs your arteries, and fat makes you fat. Wait! Not so fa$t!  Like much of what we accept as sacrosanct in the medical and nutritional world, economic factors often come into play, but that is another article entirely. Actually, most of what we’re taught, or should I say conditioned to beLIEve, is usually a 180 degree inversion of what is actually true. Meat does NOT cause…

You Smell Bad: Removing Toxic Crap From Your Life

Yousmellbad.org is a side project I’ve been working on.  The point is to teach people to remove toxic crap from their lives.  People don’t smell bad because of natural body odor (ok well sometimes that’s true too), but from unnatural fragrances that are added to hygienic products we use daily, the same fragrances and chemicals that unknowingly make us sick. I’m talking about laundry detergent, dryer sheets, cleaning products, air freshener, deodorant, cologne and perfume, shampoo, body wash, and the list goes on and on.  If you live your life like most people you’ve grown accustomed to poisoning yourselves because heck, everybody else uses Tide and Speedstick™, why shouldn’t I?  I’m sure millions of people wouldn’t use it unless it was safe? … right? Wrong. These products are not safe and they are slowly making us all sick.  We not only have to worry…

An Exposé on Reported Mortality Rates: Admissions of a Death Certificate Clerk

Originally titled: A Humbling Exposé into the Creation of Mortality Rates and its Impact on Our Public Health Beliefs and Choices by Joy Fritz Posted on: MONDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2018 My dear Facebook friends and family, I work with doctors, coroners and the local county registrars everyday to create death records. It’s what I do for a living and wanted to share my thoughts on the mortality rates being thrown around on main stream and social media regarding the influenza epidemic.  Please note: This information I am sharing is not limited to influenza reporting, but rather, serves as a case study of how the mortality rate recording system (mal)functions at large. I am sorry to say that death rates are NOT as simple nor as valid as every news broadcaster with perfectly-trained vocal delivery makes them sound, and they are absolutely not the infallible…
