‘When you are constantly barraged with news of the “obesity epidemic” it’s easy to think Americans are guzzling themselves to death with sugar and aspartame-laden drinks. But it looks like an eye-opening critical mass has taken place. For the first time in modern memory Americans chose bottled water over soda pop in 2016.

According to the Beverage Marketing Corporation, the tipping point took place when bottled water sales grew to 12.8 billion gallons (about 39 gallons of bottled water per person), versus the estimated 38.5 gallons of soft drinks. (source)

High-fructose corn syrup, made from GMO ingredients and found in nearly all pop drinks, is now associated for being linked to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, diabetes and obesity. Obesity affects up to 35% of American adults, 17% of all U.S. children and adolescents, with 34% of adults being considered overweight.

Instead of extreme dieting, however, many people are waking up to realize that if they cut back or eliminate one habit such as soda, they can see profound changes in their weight and health. When people are on the go and faced with a choice to hydrate, bottled water makes more sense despite its drawbacks.’

‘Today’s exploitation of nanotechnology may one day lead to the creation of mini-nuclear bombs and lethal robots the size of insects, according to Minnesota-based physicist and futurist Louis Del Monte. In his book entitled Nanoweapons: A Growing Threat To Humanity, Del Monte warns that current innovations in nanotechnology may potentially wipe out the entire human population by 2100.

With the U.S., China and Russia allegedly investing billions in nanoweapons research, Del Monte cautions that the development of nanobots – extremely small killing machines — pose the greatest threat in human existence as these high end robots can be used as weapons of mass destruction. Another alarming prediction: Del Monte claims terrorists may take hold of these nanoweapons through black market deals as early as the late 2020s.’

‘While you’d be hard pressed to find anyone willing to use a known herbicide for medicinal purposes, that hasn’t stopped Monsanto from patenting the star ingredient of their flagship herbicide, Roundup, as a type of antibiotic. In 2003, the corporate giant first submitted a patent for glyphosate as a parasitic control-type antimicrobial agent — or, in other words, a type of antibiotic.

The patent was granted in 2010, and you can view it here. Monsanto patented the combination of glyphosate and polyvalent anion oxalic acid as a method for preventing and treating pathogenic infections like malaria. As the patent explains, parasites from the phylum of Apicomplexa are often responsible for diseases in humans and other animals — and glyphosate is capable of inhibiting the growth of these parasites.

This patent certainly brings even more concerns about the impending Bayer-Monsanto merger, but more importantly, it raises a significant question: is glyphosate contributing to the proliferation of antibiotic-resistant bacteria?’

‘If it’s not Swine Flu it’s Ebola, and if it’s not Ebola it’s Zika, the latest manufactured epidemic that the government wants everyone to fear. Though Zika has mostly been a non-issue in the U.S., officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have made a proclamation that men who live in, or have traveled to, three Florida counties can no longer donate their sperm to sperm banks because they might be carrying the mosquito-borne illness.

Reports indicate that the ban on sperm donations is now in effect in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties, despite the fact that Miami-Dade is the only one of the three where any evidence has ever emerged that Zika might be present. Yet, even with Miami-Dade, very little evidence exists that Zika has ever been an issue there, as reported infections came from individuals in areas of South Florida that were not necessarily in that county.’

‘Princess Anne wants to grow genetically modified crops on her estate after Brexit, she has disclosed as she said arguments against the technology were “not practical”.

The Princess Royal, who is deeply knowledgeable about farming issues thanks to her work with rare breeds and on her Gatcombe Park estate, said gene technology will have “real benefits” to offer, and that she does “not see the problem” in improving how crops grow.

Her remarks would appear to put her at odds with her brother the Prince of Wales, a passionate organic farmer who has previously spoken out against GM and is royal patron of the Soil Association which campaigns against GM crops and GM ingredients in human and animal food.’

‘Imagine you arrive home after work to discover a new microwave antenna tower stationed at the edge of your backyard fence? How would you respond?

If you’d had non-existent mobile phone reception for years prior (or if you were a techie ‘hooked on faster downloads’) then you might find reason to celebrate!

You might respond as an ambivalent disempowered citizen, “I really wonder about those things but there isn’t much I can do about this anyway.”

You may be in the growing group of empowered action-takers. You’ve either experienced microwave radiation sickness attributable to exposure or you’ve read books and articles on the topic which resonate with your own truth.’

‘The British biotech company – Oxitec – didn’t successfully launch its genetically engineered mosquitoes in Key Haven, Florida late last year. So, much like the altered mosquitoes they want to spread in the U.S., the company is buzzing to find another way in.

Harris County, Texas, officials are in negotiations with Oxitec about releasing genetically modified mosquitoes in Houston under the banner of pre-emptively fighting Zika virus, said to be carried by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. Oxitec has created a breed of mosquitoes that will mate with native mosquitoes to produce offspring that die.

Similar to the Key Haven suburb, there have been no cases of Zika transmission in Houston. There was a reported case of the disease on the U.S./Mexican border. In Key Haven, there were no cases of the other diseases – like dengue – that Oxitec used as an urgent example for the need to go ahead and release the GE insects. The Food and Drug Administration, however, gave approval to the proposed field trial in Key Haven last August, but it was shot down by residents’ votes.’

‘Vaccines are a touchy subject in Australia, where government officials aggressively push for total compliance with vaccination mandates by whatever means possible. There is even a “No Jab No Pay” law on the books that essentially bars citizens from receiving government welfare unless they and their children are fully vaccinated. And at the root of it all, as usual, is government collusion with big industry, including with Australia’s new prime minister — and more specifically, his wife.

Malcolm Turnbull has repeatedly been exposed for his own ties to multinational corporations. He has large investments in many of them, particularly tech companies, that many say is clouding his judgment on various matters more than just a little bit. At issue with the vaccination debate is his wife Lucy’s ties to pharmaceutical companies, and how this influence is steering public policy to force Aussies to be jabbed against their will in order to function normally within society.’

‘On March 7, 2017, State Senator Patrick Colbeck testified before the Michigan State House Energy and Technology Committee regarding House Bill 4220 which would allow homeowners to opt-out of having to use Smart Meters without incurring fees. He is hoping to, at best, keep so-called smart meters from becoming mandatory in Michigan homes as they have in other states. His pleas are based on evidence of the risk of the cybersecurity threat they pose, privacy invasion, health hazard, and cost increases associated with the use of smart meters. Sen Colbeck believes Smart Meters are “putting our homes, our nation and, frankly, some of the power suppliers at risk.”’
