You are what your father eats

Mothers get all the attention. But a study led by McGill researcher Sarah Kimmins suggests that the father’s diet before conception may play an equally important role in the health of their offspring. It also raises concerns about the long-term effects of current Western diets and of food insecurity. The research focused on vitamin B9, also called folate, which is found in a range of green leafy vegetables, cereals, fruit and meats. It is well known that in order to prevent miscarriages and birth defects mothers need to get adequate amounts of folate in their diet.

Children in danger as an easy target for forced medicine

It would appear from mounting evidence that today’s children are an easy target for increased profits for pharmaceutical companies and medical practitioners. Profit-driven drug companies, hell-bent on making money no matter the cost to patients or their families, along with ego-driven doctors, are going to extremes to prove themselves and their dangerous treatments right (or to avoid being proven wrong), using extreme measures to force treatments onto children to meet their objectives. Children are an easy target for forced medicine, because it is simple to make out to a misinformed media, public and court system, that they are doing the … Continue reading Children in danger as an easy target for forced medicine

Look at the Stats — America Resembles a Broken Banana Republic

The only things America is #1 in these days are the number of incarcerated citizens per capita and adult onset diabetes. Last week, President Obama gave one of the most important speeches of his presidency when he spoke about the rapidly growing deficit of opportunity in this country. It was the president’s most focused and deliberate address on income inequality to date, but for many it wasn’t nearly alarmist enough, for it didn’t recognize how far this nation has fallen. It’s time we call it what it is: we’ve become a third-world nation. America has become a RINO: rich in … Continue reading Look at the Stats — America Resembles a Broken Banana Republic

Christians Are Being Burned Alive, Beheaded, Crucified, Tortured To Death And Imprisoned In Metal Shipping Containers

The “coming persecution of Christians” has already begun. It is already here. So why is the mainstream media in the United States almost totally silent about this phenomenon?

35 year study finds exercise reduces risk of dementia

10 December 2013 – The study identifies five healthy behaviours as being integral to having the best chance of leading a disease-free lifestyle: taking regular exercise, non-smoking, a low bodyweight, a healthy diet and a low alcohol intake. The people who consistently followed four or five of these behaviours experienced a 60 per cent decline in dementia and cognitive decline – with exercise being the strongest mitigating factor – as well as 70 per cent fewer instances of diabetes, heart disease and stroke, compared with people who followed none. “The size of reduction in the instance of disease owing to … Continue reading 35 year study finds exercise reduces risk of dementia
