NEW VACCINES WILL PERMANENTLY ALTER YOUR DNA

by Jon Rappoport, Guest Waking Times A news story tend to move in waves. It appears, retreats, and then appears in an altered form—replete with lies, cover stories, and embedded confusion. That’s why I’m keeping this story alive in its stark essence— The reference is the New York Times, 3/9/15, “Protection Without a Vaccine.” It describes the frontier of research. Here are key quotes that illustrate the use of synthetic genes to “protect against disease,” while changing the genetic makeup of humans. This is not science fiction: “By delivering synthetic genes into the muscles of the [experimental] monkeys, the scientists are essentially re-engineering the … Continue reading NEW VACCINES WILL PERMANENTLY ALTER YOUR DNA

Teen Dating Violence Can Be Traced Back to Your Father’s Drinking Problem

The kindled brain

image edited by F. Kaskais If each bout of depression, bipolar disorder or PTSD makes another more likely, should sufferers stay on medication for life? Elizabeth Svoboda writes on topics from creationist biology classes in Galápagos schools to the connections between suffering and selflessness. She lives in San José, California, and is the author of What Makes a Hero? (2013). When I got depressed for the first time, at age 27, what surprised me most was the sheer physicality of it. My arms and legs, numb and pendulous as dumbbells, resisted my half-hearted attempts to animate them, and my perception was equally leaden. … Continue reading The kindled brain

WHY BRAIN HACKING WITH SMART DRUGS MAY NOT BE SO GENIUS

by Christina Sarich, Staff Writer Waking Times   When you talk to brain-hackers from Silicon Valley, they talk of creating the perfect stack – a combination of natural and pharmaceutical nootropics that can help make them into a super-powered genius that can go hours without sleep while maintaining massive focus. It sounds like a cool way to hack the brain, but this practice can come at a price. The problem is that many of the pharmaceutical versions (and sometimes even the natural ones) can be damaging. In the early days, people trying to crank out loads of computer code, write the next best-selling … Continue reading WHY BRAIN HACKING WITH SMART DRUGS MAY NOT BE SO GENIUS

WHY IS WEED GETTING MORE POTENT?

Posted  by Soren Dreier Author: Bucky Turco The feds began monitoring the potency of the nation’s pot supply in the ‘70s by drawing samples from stashes seized by law enforcement, and boy was it schwag. The percentage of THC—the main psychoactive component in cannabis—averaged from less than 1% in 1975 to just under 3% a decade later, according to the data. These notoriously low levels reflected the times, as the weed subculture in America was just starting to take root and could help explain why some of the most memorable old school brands have names like Acapulco Gold, Panama Red, Afghani, … Continue reading WHY IS WEED GETTING MORE POTENT?
