Yes, it’s a terrifying word — but not always as terrifying as you might think by Andrew Fiouzi There are certain words or phrases you never want to hear come out of a doctor’s mouth: “You know, this is the first time I’ve ever tried this procedure”; “I’ve never seen one that color before”; “HOLY SHIT WAYNE, COME AND LOOK AT THIS!”; and of course, “Cancer.” The latter, more than any other, is capable of sending you spiraling toward a deep well of online forums, WebMD articles and Reddit threads, all of which will have you begging your doctor to either cut you open or give you chemo. That’s exactly why a … Continue reading It’s Time for Doctors to Update Their Definition of ‘Cancer’
by Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer Waking Times Suicide is becoming as big of a public health issue as the opioid crisis. In 2016 alone over 45,000 Americans took their own lives, and the numbers are on the rise. Suicide is now the 10th leading cause of death in America today. In the last 15 years, antidepressant use has increased over 65%, while the suicide prevention industry has also grown to have a major cultural presence. Prozac and other antidepressants increase the risk of “suicidal thinking and behavior in children, adolescents, and young adults” suffering from major depression. It says so in the package insert for Prozac. Take a … Continue reading SUICIDE PREVENTION, PSYCHIATRY AND ANTIDEPRESSANT USE ALL FAIL TO REDUCE SUICIDE RATE

by Brandon Turbeville, Natural Blaze Waking Times From the first moments Europeans landed on the shores of North America, a war was waged against the indigenous people who lived there. That war took the form of deceptive agreements, settlements, outright violence, genocide, and, after defeat on the battlefield, an attempt to erase Native American culture and history from the minds of the victims. This war on Native Americans has never ended. Instead, it has only intensified with the lessons learned from the indoctrination and police state techniques used on the majority American population via television, law enforcement brutality, austerity/dependency, and of course … Continue reading GENOCIDE FOR PROFIT – HOW THE GOV’T, BIG PHARMA, PSYCHIATRY, AND DSS ARE CONSPIRING TO DESTROY NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURE
by: Earl Garcia (Natural News) A recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology revealed that beta-blockers, a type of drug typically prescribed for heart attack, may not be as helpful in preventing the disease as previously believed. To carry out the study, a team of researchers from the University of Leeds in the U.K. pooled data from the country’s national heart attack register and identified nearly 180,000 patients who suffered a heart attack, 95 percent of whom were given beta-blockers. The study revealed that death rates between beta-blocker users and the non-using controls did not differ within a year following a heart attack incident. … Continue reading Beta-blocker pharmaceuticals found to be totally useless for heart attack patients… but they are routinely prescribed by doctors anyway
by Jon Rappoport, Guest Waking Times —All right, look, here’s what we’ll do. We’ll take a few general symptoms like fatigue, fever, and swelling, and we’ll invent one new disease label that covers them. We’ll say this is a specific new disease and we’re looking for the cause. Of course, there is no single cause because this isn’t a single disease. It’s a vague generality. But since we control the disease label, the name, we can convince everyone that this is a specific and real disease. It’s a total con, but we can sell it— Over the years, my readers have seen … Continue reading WHO OWNS DISEASES?
