“Are you not going to report about the new paper from Oxford about being allowed to murder innocent newborn children because they are morally irrelevant?? or is it just more of the eugenics plan with bill gates and his ultrasound device that kills sperm and his TED talk on bringing the population down through vaccines and propper healthcare, the georgia guidestones lay it out very clearly. and also funding Monsanto heavily and yes our so called GE free clean green country is selling GE Monsanto seeds to our farmers under their subsidary company Seminis seeds. As well as the go ahead for oil drilling in the beatiful oceans and fracking which destroys the land polutes our beautiful water to the point that the water itself becomes flamable. And all fast food and procesed foods contain chemicals that cause the brain to bleed leading to brain damage

Great interview about vaccinations and excitotoxins (MSG and artifical sweetners)

Mike Adams gives a special introduction to Russell Blaylock’s amazing interview on the Alex Jones show about vaccines. Russell Blaylock is a neurosurgeon and an expert on excitotoxins, the toxicity of MSG, aspartame and other brain-damaging chemicals. In this video interview, Russell talks about how vaccines damage the brain and contribute to diseases like autism

Unvaccinated kids banned from Indiana school due to measles ‘outbreak’
Mass hysteria over a measles outbreak in Hamilton County, Indiana, has led county health officials there to irrationally prohibit all unvaccinated children from attending two public schools. According to reports, 21 preschool-age students, seven elementary-age students, and 26 intermediate-age students in the Noblesville Schools District will not be allowed to attend either White River Elementary School or Noblesville Intermediate School, the two schools where there have been confirmed cases of measles, unless they either get the combination measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, or wait until 21 days after the last confirmed case of the disease is remediated.
Officials believe the outbreak first began as a result of two infected individuals who attended the recent Super Bowl in Indianapolis. It has since spread to 13 people in the Hoosier state, all of whom reportedly live in either Boone or Hamilton counties. And the two confirmed cases in schoolchildren has led to drastic measures that unfairly discriminate against students who have not been vaccinated for measles, some of whom are allergic to the vaccine.
“One confirmed case in a school setting constitutes an outbreak and will trigger outbreak procedures as designated by the state and local health department,” read a memo from Carmel Clay Schools, a nearby school district that plans to ban unvaccinated students from its schools as well, should there be a confirmed measles case in the district. As of this writing, however, there have been no confirmed cases outside the two Noblesville schools.
The so-called procedures for handling measles outbreaks involve barring students and even teachers that have not complied with the state-sponsored vaccine schedule from attending school, despite the fact that Indiana law provisions for individuals to opt out of vaccines for both medical and religious reasons. Five of the unvaccinated students reportedly have religious exemptions on file with the school district, while the others are presumably exempt for medical reasons.
In the collective mind of the state, refusal by some students to get vaccinated somehow represents a threat to other students, even though those other students have been vaccinated. Prohibiting unvaccinated students from attending school on the grounds that they will spread the disease further makes no sense, as though who are vaccinated are said to already have protection against the disease.
And oddly enough, most or all of those who have already contracted the measles in Indiana as part of the current outbreak have likely been vaccinated as well, which just goes to show the sheer hypocrisy of the vaccine pushers in trying to coerce everyone to get vaccinated for their own protection.

Does anyone else see the link

John Key’s asset sales have been shunned by almost everyone so I find it odd that he would still want it to go ahead, not only does it mean a good portion of the profits of these corporations will no be going offshore but it will also grow the poverty gap.

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.206018236088661.54140.100000414585926&type=3

Also the fact that there have been loads of recent deals signed with the US and the IMF (international monetary fund) and we are in debted to them. could it be that when the NZ govt refused to do the asset sales that NZ was threatened with earthquake technology?? not only is there a HAARP style array out at birdlings flats but there were rainbow clouds and scallar activity recorded the day/days before the september 7.1 and february 6.3 quakes and mass whale strandings in the area which are all signs of radio wave interferance. Also interesting to note that on the day of the February quake there were 6 diplomats from the US that left only hours before and also signed big deals with FEMA after september. And also the fact that the city was on total lock down, military cordon with tanks and armed soldiers. Does that sound right to you ?? people locked out of their homes while foreign search and rescue crew break and enter their homes and enter every room of your house, then if you get the red sticker you are not allowed back in and your property becomes that of CERA and the demo teams who claim everything you own and it all becomes their property and meanwhile the billions of dollars funded to the disaster have all gone into the central city and all the corperations even all that money raised in the telethon was not even handed to the people. The people are the ones that had to look after each other and it was so heartwarming to see people from out of town sending in truckloads of stuff for those left homeless and the Rangiora express with their privatly hired helicopter flying loads of hot food to the area’s ;eft without water/power or toilets. Never count on the government doing a thing for you its people, good honest kind hearted people which sadly are rare and hard to find but they are out there and I love them all and we are all in this together so its time to build us a better world for ourselves free of the govornment tyrrany

It’s also very interesting to note that John Key also said twice (within 5 mins) that the earthquake was a man made disaster and some theories even go as far as to say that the plan is to rid the south island of NZ’s and the US and Europe elite plan on moving here to wait out the financial collapse so whilst their nations are left to kill each other on the streets for food and survival etc

Any thoughts on this ??

British government considers using nerve agents on their own people

British government may use nerve agents on their own people, leading neuroscientists have warned. The agents to be used by police would be banned under an international treaty on chemical weapons, however the government may use a loophole that means it can use the nerve agents against demonstrators within its own borders. Experts have asked the government whether it intends to develop chemical agents that would incapacitate and go beyond the chemical irritants already used such as CS gas.
The experts were commissioned by the Royal Society, to investigate new agents that could be used in the military, however the experts concluded that the government may be prepared to exploit a loophole in the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention which bans the development and use of toxic chemicals and nerve agents in military conflict, but there is exemption for domestic purposes.
The Royal Society group reported that the government had shifted its position from only using irritants such as CS gas to using the type of nerve agents used in hostage situations in Russia. The report says “The development of incapacitating chemical agents, ostensibly for law-enforcement purposes, raises a number of concerns in the context of humanitarian and human-rights law, as well as the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC).”
It went on to say, “The UK Government should publish a statement on the reasons for its apparent recent shift in position on the interpretation of the CWC’s law enforcement position.” The Royal Society group points to a 1992 statement by Douglas Hogg, the then Foreign Office Minister, who indicated that riot-control agents were the only toxic chemicals that the UK considered to be permitted for law-enforcement purposes. But in 2009 ministers gave a less-restrictive definition suggesting the use of “incapacitating” chemical agents would be permitted for law-enforcement purposes as long as they were in the categories and quantities consistent with that permitted purpose.”
In a statement, Professor Rod Flower, from Queen Mary University of London, said in the Independentnewspaper that, “the insights into the human brain were leading to novel ways of degrading human performance using chemicals.”

Why has the British government changed it’s position?

The question that must be asked is why the British government suddenly thinks that this kind of urban warfare against its own people is necessary. The riots in London, Manchester and Birmingham in 2011 were difficult to control, but they would have been avoided without the austerity measures put in place by the government after they had to bail out greedy bankers, that have caused mass unemployment, huge national debt and poverty to come back to Britain, in a way that hasn’t been seen since the general strikes of the 1970s.
Other world leaders who used chemical agents on their own people include Adolf Hitler, Saddam Hussain and Colonel Gadhafi.

Shocking levels of arsenic found in baby formula made with brown rice syrup

arsenic

Think baby formula with brown rice syrup is the healthier choice? Think again: infant formula made with brown rice syrup may contain 30 times more arsenic than other formulas, according to a new study from Dartmouth College.
Environmental chemist Brian P. Jackson led the team of researchers in their study of arsenic levels in 17 infant formulas. Their results are surprising: formulas made with brown rice syrup contained a staggering 20 to 30 times more arsenic than other formulas. One organic infant formula sweetened with brown rice syrup contained six times the amount of arsenic the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers safe for drinking water.
The research team also looked at arsenic levels in 29 cereal bars. Brown rice syrup and other rice products were listed in the top five ingredients of 22 of these bars – and those were the cereal bars that contained the highest arsenic levels.
While arsenic is regulated in drinking water, there are no current federal limits for arsenic in food. Because of this, high levels of arsenic can be present in foods many parents assume are safe for children, such as organic infant formulas and cereal bars. Researchers say, “There is an urgent need for regulatory limits on arsenic in food.”
Jackson adds, “In the absence of regulations for levels of arsenic in food, I would certainly advise parents who are concerned about their children’s exposure to arsenic not to feed them formula where brown rice syrup is the main ingredient.”

The trouble with brown rice syrup? Banned pesticides left high levels of arsenic in the soil

Many people consider brown rice syrup a healthy alternative to cane sugar, but brown rice syrup comes with a serious disadvantage: high levels of arsenic.
The problem is that rice used to make brown rice syrup is typically grown in regions where arsenic pesticides were heavily used before the EPA banned them in 2009. And while these pesticides are no longer used, their toxic residue is still lurking in the soil where our food is grown.
Rice appears to soak up unusually large amounts of arsenic from the soil as it grows. Much of this arsenic ends up in the brown hull, so brown rice and brown rice syrup will contain particularly high amounts of arsenic compared to products like white rice and rice starch.
Unfortunately, buying organic doesn’t solve the problem. Organic rice syrup has been found to contain very high levels of arsenic, because even organic rice absorbs arsenic already present in the soil.

Teen girl rushed to hospital for eating nothing but chicken nuggets for 15 years

If you ate only McDonald’s chicken McNuggets every day for practically every meal, what do you think your health condition would be like in 15 years? One British girl, 17-year-old Stacey Irvine, recently found out the hard way that such a diet severely destroyed her health when she was rushed to the hospital after collapsing and having severe difficulty breathing.
Yahoo! News reports that the young factory worker had been eating practically nothing else besides McDonald’s chicken McNuggets since she was about two years old. Shockingly, Stacey has also never once eaten a single fruit or vegetable, according to the same report, which has left her grossly deficient in practically every single vitamin and mineral in existence.
This horrific diet finally caught up with Stacey, however, when she fell over at work and had to be rushed to the emergency room. Doctors discovered severely-swelled veins on the young girl’s tongue, and quickly diagnosed her with anemia. They subsequently put her on an “emergency vitamin regimen,” according to reports, and warned her that if she does not change her dietary habits, she will soon die.
But Stacey’s addiction to fast food nuggets is so severe that she still apparently refuses to eat anything else besides them, except for the occasional piece of toast or potato chips. And Stacey’s mom, Evonne, has apparently tried everything to get her daughter to eat other foods, including starving the girl at one point, but to no avail.
“She’s been told in no uncertain terms that she’ll die if she carries on like this,” Evonne is quoted as saying by CBS News. “But she says she can’t eat anything else. I’m at my wit’s end. I’m praying she can be helped before it’s too late.”
McDonald’s chicken McNuggets, of course, are made from a so-called food product called “mechanically separated chicken,” which is created from chickens that have been “stripped down to the bone, and then ‘ground up’ into a chicken mash, then combined with a variety of stabilizers and preservatives, pressed into familiar shapes, breaded and deep fried, freeze dried, and then shipped to a McDonald’s near you.”
You can see a horrifying picture of mechanically separated chicken at the following link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com
McDonald’s chicken McNuggets also contain dimethylpolysiloxane, an antifoaming agent composed of the same silicone chemicals used in cosmetic products (http://www.naturalnews.com/032820_Chicken_McNuggets_ingredients.html). A federal judge put it well back in 2003 when he called McNuggets a “McFrankenstein creation of various elements not utilized by the home cook.”

TSA Help Wanted comedy animation video causes ROFL pandemic across the internet, warns CDC (satire)

A dangerous new disease known as ROFL has stricken internet users, and scientists are alarmed that it may spread through ethernet and wi-fi. The disease started with the release of the new “TSA Help Wanted” video created by the Health Ranger at NaturalNews.com, and it has since spread across Facebook, Twitter and independent websites, infecting millions.

 

 

 

 

The CDC has urged parents to have their children vaccinated against ROFL disease in order to “protect them from the internet,” which is dangerous because it allows the free flow of ideas criticizing tyrannical government. Vaccines are expected to help quell the fast-spreading pandemic by causing widespread brain damage thanks to their chemical adjuvants and aluminum content.
Bill Gates is reportedly working with Merck to develop an even more powerful ROFL vaccine that will soon be made available at CVS pharmacies in the form of Valentine’s Day cards featuring the slogan, “Nothing says LOVE better than a needle.”

Beware of “TSA Help Wanted” video – it’s contagious!

The Health Ranger’s “TSA Help Wanted” satire video portrays a TSA help wanted ad that appeals to the “pathetic losers” of America who can’t find employment anywhere else. It reveals comedic, hilarious and perverted scenes of TSA agents drooling over naked body scanner images and molesting little children — which is, of course, what they do every single day at airports across America.
Watch it now at: http://tv.naturalnews.com/v.asp?v=979D7B9F44BA6EAE0DF65B3DE6E4EE33
Given that the TSA actually placed help wanted ads on pizza boxes, this satire ad isn’t too far from the truth, explained Mike Adams, the activist creator of the satire video. “It is an established fact that TSA employees distribute child porn, steal electronics from the bags of passengers, plant fake cocaine in their luggage, sell stolen items on eBay and exhibit a kind of pathetic ego-driven tyranny that you might typically find acted out by a schoolyard bully,” said Adams. “Our satire video simply portrays these factual characteristics of TSA employees in a comedic fashion as a way of exercising free expression in criticizing a known criminal operation.”
Adams hopes that his video will encourage discussion about de-funding the TSA and eliminating the entire department from the federal government. He does not intend for the video to infect anyone else with ROFL disease, however.
“The TSA operates in total violation of the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution’s Bill of Rights,” explains Adams. “The actions taken by its employees, such as reaching into the pants and touching the genitals of travelers, are felony crimes that should be prosecuted as such.” Accordingly, the TSA remains a gang of unindicted criminals committing human rights violations crimes every single day across America, says Adams.

Proof that the cancer industry doesn’t want a cure – even if it’s a pharmaceutical

A safe and effective cure for cancer has been discovered with a drug that was once used for unusual metabolic problems. Yet, the cancer industry shows no interest with following up on dichloroacetate (DCA) research from University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, reported in 2007. That’s because DCA is no longer patented. (1)
That research also confirmed cancer as a metabolic malfunction, not a weird mutation of cells often explained away as a genetic issue. But the medical mafia doesn’t want you to hear about it. But it confirms what most alternative cancer therapists already know.
Since Nixon declared the “war on cancer” in the 1970s, the cancer industry has succeeded with raising money for researching very expensive chemo substances at $50,000 to $100,000 per round or more for toxic therapies that rarely work. (2)
Chemo drugs usually lead to demanding more business with drugs to ease terrible side effects (http://www.naturalnews.com/034761_cancer_drugs_toxicity_Voraxaze.html). Meanwhile, more are getting cancer and more are dying from it, mostly because of the toxic treatments.

Explaining DCA research results

Evangelos Michelakis and the Alberta University research team tested DCA on human cancer cells outside the body and in cancerous mice with profound success. DCA was once used for unusual metabolic disorders. The worst side effects, which rarely occur, include some numbness and an affected gait.
The mice were fed DCA in water, and in weeks they had remarkable tumor shrinkage. This indicates DCA can be taken orally. DCA works by restoring the cells’ mitochondria. Michelakis and his team had discovered that the mitochondria in cancer cells are not permanently damaged and irreparable. This is what mainstream medicine thinks.
With mitochondria malfunctioning, cancer cells use glucose fermentation for survival energy. This fermentation occurs when glycolysis (glucose conversion) occurs in an anaerobic cellular environment, which can be created by benign tumor masses, toxins, and low pH levels.
DCA restores mitochondria in cells to make them function properly. Another function of normal mitochondria is signaling apoptosis, or cellular self destruction. Normal cells die and become replaced constantly. But with cancer cells, the apoptosis signal is nullified, making cancer cells “immortal.” (3)
The Alberta University researchers also realized that glycolysis fermentation in cancer cells produces lactic acid. The lactic acid breaks down the collagen holding those cells together in a tumor. This allows cancer cells to easily break away from a tumor shrinking with mainstream therapies.
The researchers reasoned this is why cancer metastasizes or spreads to different parts of the body or reappears after remission from chemo.

Tragic hypocrisy

Alternative cancer therapies have little or no problem with metastatic cancer or even cancer reoccurring after remission. Most alternative cancers simply cure cancers completely.
DCA offers the cancer industry an opportunity to come up with a pharmaceutical cure that is much cheaper and safer than their current standard of care. Yet the cancer industry is ignoring this opportunity. Instead, DCA is a homeless orphan begging for research funds to avoid legal issues with off label use on cancer. (4)
Alternative cancer practitioners have always simply tried out and when they succeeded shared them with others who cared more about healing than money and power.
The medical mafia has created a matrix that demands big bucks to make big bucks for sick care instead of curing. Everyone in on the scam makes out financially. The cancer industry accuses alternative cancer therapists of quackery and taking advantage of the desperately ill for financial gain. Accusing others of your motives and crimes is called projection.
The medical/pharmaceutical complex is crony capitalism that doesn’t want a cure for cancer from anywhere.

Marketing of fast foods (and all other marketing also)

We are bombarded with advertising all day, and if thats not bad enough we often get the catchy tunes stuck in our heads and most probably even dream adverts.
Most advertising bases itself on your own unhappyness and always promises to bring you happyness, make you more atractive, make people notice you etc etc etc. It basicly makes you feel incomplete and worthless untill you buy the item being pushed upon you.
Not only this but they also even employ psychologists to better manipulate the masses into buying their products.

In short there is nothing you can’t do for yourself, you don’t need a “profesional” to do it for you, they use big words to sound like they know more but anyone can learn these words, you are not inadequate you can do anything you just have to believe in yourself!!

New Zealand (NZ) continues to be saturated by research documenting the presence of overweight and obesity in adults and children, and by research looking at the serious impacts of these conditions on individual and population health.

Fast Food Advertising – What’s Wrong WIth it?

Fast Food and QSR Advertising Are missing ONE key element…

Fast Food Advertising Leverage - Your TrafficSince the beginning, all fast food locations and QSR establishments are missing the single most powerful lever available to them: They fail to marketing optimally to the tens of thousands of people who pass the front door. Now, I didn’t say they don’t try, and I didn’t say they don’t marketing to them. I just said ‘not optimally’.
Stop and think about it: What is the biggest cost of ANY fast food location: traffic. Wait a sec, you say! No, there are so many other costs… Listen and think: When you list all of the investments you make on a monthly basis, they ALL come down to you having all of those ‘things’ (food, tables, utensils, condiments, ovens, shake machines, etc..) IN FRONT OF TRAFFIC!!
What is the ONE THING that makes any QSR location great? It’s traffic. It’s the tens of thousands of people passing the front door every 24 hours. So my question is ‘What is the best way to capitalize on THAT TRAFFIC’? In fact, I’m saying that this is the most important question you’ll ever ask. Watch the QSR Marketing video below. (You’re about to see the most effective of all fast food marketing ideas in history…)
_____________________________________________________________________________
In a discussion paper, Waikato District Health Board’s Population Health service has accused exhausting marketing gimmicks of fast foods for triggering type 2 diabetes and obesity in a large number of people.In the discussion paper entitled “Obesity, diabetes and fast food – the impact of marketing to children”, the authorities concerned looked over the issues like sedentary lifestyle and lack of physical exercise, which has triggered obesogenic environments.

The author of the paper, Nick Chester, said that the aim of the paper to make the authorities think as to how they can turn obesogenic environment into healthy environment. It has been found that the marketing firms are targeting children by exposing them to luxurious ads of soft drinks and fast food.

Previously, the advertisement firms were criticized for using internet for attracting kids. Daily intake of fast foods and energy drinks leads to higher chances or risk of developing type 2 diabetes and obesity. A survey conducted in 2006-2007 found that about 70% of the kids in the age group of 2 to 14 years consume fast food at least for once in a weak.

However, 7% of the children consume fast food frequently in a week. The figures clearly show that in the New Zealand, consumption of fast food is quite frequent. It has been informed that there are a large number of fast food chains located at places like Waikato.

Although the number of fast food chains is high in number, the promotional ads further contribute in attracting children to fast food. It is not feasible to ask fast food chain to close down the production of fast foods. But a control over the advertisement gimmicks chosen by the manufacturer can play vital role in reducing obesity cases.
