Humans Can Reverse Their Biological Age, Shows a ‘Curious Case’ Study

by Nina Pullano keshav patil Someone call Brad Pitt, because it might be time for a sci-fi spin on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

For our hero, the strawberry, to defeat its nemesis, a fungus called wilt, the aromatic red fruit makes a deal with the devil—and duly becomes America’s favorite berry. But its success relies on fumigants, toxic gases injected into the soil that kill everything in their path. So what are fumigants? What’s their effect on farm … Continue reading Almost All American Strawberries Are Grown With Toxic Chemicals

The opioid crisis in the United States has also largely been fueled by unscrupulous drug manufacturers more concerned with the bottom line than protecting vulnerable patients. New research indicates … Continue reading Pharmaceuticals are destroying fresh water ecosystems

The terraforming of planet Earth, and the planned annihilation of humankind: Dave Hodges interviews Mike Adams

by: Mike Adams (Natural News) Based on the urgency of the revelations that are now undeniable, I’ve decided to go public with information that shows Earth is being terraformed and prepared for a “post-human era.” At the same time, humanity is being mass-poisoned, indoctrinated and driven to cultural suicide. This is all part of the planned genocide of human beings and the occupation of planet Earth by non-human biologicals which need a colder planet, a collapse of plant life, dimmed sunlight and lower oxygen concentrations in the lower atmosphere. (These are all goals of the so-called “climate change” narrative being pushed by Earth’s globalists, … Continue reading The terraforming of planet Earth, and the planned annihilation of humankind: Dave Hodges interviews Mike Adams
