‘Antibiotic-resistant superbugs are now killing more people than breast cancer, according to a new data analysis by the UK Sepsis Trust.

According to the British Department of Health, about 5,000 people die each year from drug-resistant infections. But the UK Sepsis Trust and others have criticized these figures for being based on studies conducted in other countries, many of them with flawed methodology.

For the new analysis, the UK Sepsis Trust looked at the Department of Health’s own data to come up with an estimate of 12,000 killed per year by superbugs — more than twice as high as the current estimate.

This surpasses the number killed by breast cancer, officially considered one of the United Kingdom’s top killers.’

‘At the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, the mood is bleak. President-elect Donald Trump’s surprise victory over Hillary Clinton has generated agency-wide anxiety, with employees reportedly worried about the impact of a Trump presidency on job safety, funding and public health policies.

CDC employees are literally falling apart and becoming emotionally disturbed over their future with Trump.

Specifically, CDC employees fear that Trump appointed public leaders may not support mandatory vaccinations – especially in light of the most recent meeting between Trump and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., an outspoken critic of the pharmaceutical industry. Employees are also worried that the policies of a Trump presidency will create a general atmosphere of ‘scientific regression.’’

‘On Thursday the National Academy of Sciences released a comprehensive review of research on marijuana and concluded that marijuana does indeed have medical value.

The review concluded: “One of the therapeutic uses of cannabis and cannabinoids is to treat chronic pain in adults. The committee found evidence to support that patients who were treated with cannabis or cannabinoids were more likely to experience a significant reduction in pain symptoms. For adults with multiple sclerosis-related muscle spasms, there was substantial evidence that short-term use of certain “oral cannabinoids”—man-made, cannabinoid-based medications that are orally ingested—improved their reported symptoms. Furthermore, in adults with chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, there was conclusive evidence that certain oral cannabinoids were effective in preventing and treating those ailments.”’

‘Just off a winding highway along the Pacific coast in Monterey, California, is a private clinic where people can pay $8,000 to have their veins pumped with blood plasma from teenagers and young adults.

Jesse Karmazin is the entrepreneur who made the practice possible, by launching a clinical trial on the potential of “young blood” through his startup Ambrosia. He says that within a month, most participants “see improvements” from the one-time infusion of a two-liter bagful of plasma, which is blood with the blood cells removed.

Several scientists and clinicians say Karmazin’s trial is so poorly designed it cannot hope to provide evidence about the effects of the transfusions. And some say the pay-to-participate study, with the potential to collect up to $4.8 million from as many as 600 participants, amounts to a scam.’

Accident And Emergency Figures Show Worst Performance In 10 Years

‘More than 20 hospitals in England have been forced to declare a black alert as the NHS crisis deepens.

According to figures obtained by the Guardian, at least 23 hospitals had to issue the warning declaring that they cannot cope with increasingly overwhelming patient numbers.

One hospital trust was under so much pressure on Tuesday that it had to declare a ‘system critical incident’ – even higher than a black alert.
Staff at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS trust were reportedly forced to make patients wait in ambulances before they could be offloaded into A&E.’

‘At the end of November, a judge from the Northern District of California delivered a crushing blow to our nation’s beekeepers, and effectively approved of the EPA policies that will allow seeds to be coated with bee-toxic pesticides, known as neonicotinoids, or neonics for short. These pesticides, which can persist in soil and water with ease, are associated with killing bees indiscriminately, leading to a dramatic drop in pollinator populations and massive environmental damage.

The judge ruled against the beekeepers and public interest advocates in their lawsuit — which was seeking to protect bees, and the rest of the environment, from unregulated damages that may be caused by the Environmental Protection Agency’s rather sloppy policies regarding seeds that are coated with certain insecticides that are known to kill bees in large numbers.’

‘State legislators, medical marijuana patients, doctors and adult cannabis consumers have been stymied in many ways by the federal listing of cannabis as a schedule 1 controlled substance. However, cannabis is not unique in that regard.

For example, another powerful medicine plant, the iboga shrub, is likewise banned from medical use. What makes iboga a special case is that its major medical value has been as an effective treatment for addiction to alcohol and hard drugs.

Once again, the Drug War that is supposed to prevent addiction is used instead to withhold treatment from those who most need it.’

‘On March 23, 2010, Obama signed the misnamed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) into law.

It’s a healthcare rationing scheme to enrich insurers, drug companies and large hospital chains in lieu of the only equitable system – universal coverage, everyone in, no one left out, no gimmicks and schemes the way Obamacare was crafted.

Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) proposes a “Beyond the Affordable Care Act: A Physicians’ Proposal for Single-Payer Care Reform.”

It’s a work in progress, to be published when completed.’

‘Predictive technology is exploding across the virtual landscape. The arrival of Big Data initiatives by government, as well as a massive industry of data brokers is not only putting privacy at risk, but is offering those with access to the information unprecedented ways to micromanage our lives.

Most people now seem resigned to the surveillance of our communications devices, which have become so intertwined with modern efficiency, economics and knowledge that there are real tradeoffs when choosing a fully opt-out lifestyle. Wearable gadgets add a new layer still, and are being bought into at record pace, thus donating the information that isn’t already being stolen.’

‘In this interview with Era of Wisdom, Peter breaks down his extensive research on the history of weather modification (geoengineering), thoroughly documented in his book yet kept from the public, from the 1940’s to present day.

He goes into exactly who the prime suspects are in spraying us today: corporations such as Raytheon, MITRE Corporation, and their academic foundations in Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Government organizations such as the Department of Defense and its DARPA division, NATO, and the CIA are discussed.

As two residents of Northern California, we discuss our experiences observing the distinct odor of chemtrails recently, and subsequent symptoms. We discuss the observed escalation of spraying activity in 2016, and how a new type of aerosol mix seems to be in use now compared to before mid-2016, that smells plastic, sharp, metallic, and similar to static electricity, rather than the powdery, starchy metallic odor observed previously.’
