by Nathaniel Mauka, Staff Writer, Waking Times The Svalbard seed bank, set like a concrete monolith in the minus 4 degree Celsius permafrost of a mountain on a remote island in the Svalbard archipelago between mainland Norway and the North Pole, shouldn’t determine the fate of our agricultural future. Though the remote bank has collected 860,000 seed samples from around the world, with the latest withdrawal being made from war-torn Syria, what are the true intentions behind a bank said to, “preserve as much of the world’s crop diversity as possible,”while seed supplies around the world are being monopolized by a few corporations, … Continue reading Svalbard – How the Elite Plan to Survive an Engineered Extinction Event

It’s actually a form of malnutrition that could be making our immune systems attack our own bodies. In a recent study published in the … Continue reading Those Burgers Aren’t Just Making Us Fat—They’re Messing With Our Immune Systems, Too

by Catherine J. Frompovich, Guest, Waking Times This is an “anthology” of sorts about the etiology of the current cancer epidemic-pandemic. C-A-N-C-E-R is the word that strikes horror in the hearts and minds of every human alive. However, that always was not the case. I’m old enough to remember when cancer was a rather ‘rare’ disease or condition. Furthermore, I know medical doctors a little older than my ‘vintage’ who say that when they were in medical school, they were not taught very much about cancer, so much so, that when a cancer patient was in one of the wards in … Continue reading Why Are There So Many Cancers Now?

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger (NaturalNews) By now we’re all sadly aware of the terror atrocity in Nice, France that took the lives of at least 80 people. The attack was insane and horrific, and my prayers go out to all those affected by the senseless violence. Yet it isn’t just ISIS terrorists who are destroying lives in our world, and it’s not just trucks that damage our bodies and cause pain and suffering. The number of lives ripped from our world by the horrific attack on innocent people in France pales in comparison to what Whole Foods and … Continue reading BETRAYED! Whole Foods and the Organic Trade Association just plowed right through American food consumers like the terrorist truck rampage in France (op ed)
by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer (NaturalNews) If you’ve ever wondered why corporations seem to hold so much sway over our government, look no further than who’s making all the decisions in Washington – and more importantly, where many of these people worked before being handed comfy, high-level positions at top government agencies. You might be surprised at the number of senior advisors, chiefs of staff, judges, commissioners and others employed at agencies like the Department of Justice (DoJ), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) who all have one thing in common: they used … Continue reading How Monsanto invaded, occupied and now CONTROLS government regulators
