Ebola Vaccine

There is a lot of talk right now about developing a vaccine for Ebola. Would you like to be one of the test subjects? Would you purposely expose yourself to a deadly virus to see if some chemical compound would keep you safe?

There are some things about vaccines that are not widely known.
  • In 1955 Polio vaccines were found to be infected with a virus, but administered anyway. In 1985 there was a huge increase in breast cancer. Many studies point to that virus.
  • Vaccines are grown in animal by-products. These can even be aborted babies, or aborted animals. They are not screened for diseases.
  • Vaccines have been shown to weaken the immune system.
  • Every vaccine has tissue from aborted babies.
  • Vaccines don’t last, but they do prevent natural immunity.
  • Someone recently vaccinated can spread that disease.
  • Vaccines increase the risk of autism.
  • Doctors and manufacturers are exempt from lawsuits for harm caused by vaccines.
  • Brain inflammation has been recognized as a very serious complication of vaccination since the first vaccine for smallpox.
  • Vaccines have been linked to an increase in peanut allergies. Peanut oil is used in the making of vaccines.
  • Vaccines contain mercury, formaldehyde and aluminum.
 These are just a few of the known facts about vaccines. Knowing this, would you really want to subject yourself or a loved one to any vaccination, much less one that is being rushed through development, manufacturing and testing? Every time we rush anything, but especially something that has to do with health care, we later find an unknown consequence that could have been avoided. Let’s use some common sense in avoiding people that are sick, or have been around sick people. Take extra precautions with cleanliness every time you touch something that a sick person may have touched. 

These steps will go a lot farther in protecting us from viruses of all types better than a vaccine.

Mammogram Myths

October is ‘Breast Cancer Awareness Month’.  During October we hear a lot of different people encouraging women to get mammograms. Have you ever wondered why men aren’t pushed to get mammograms? They are just as susceptible to breast cancer as women are.  I think the industry realize that they aren’t going to be able to manipulate them into getting their chest tissue mashed and twisted the way women are.

Are mammograms a good idea for men or women? Let’s take a look at the technology. Mammograms are basically x-rays. X-rays are radiation. Radiation accumulates in the body. Radiation causes cancer. You get enough radiation in the body you will get cancer, unless you die of radiation poisoning first. It is estimated that 75% of all breast cancers are caused by radiation. 

Advertisements claim that mammograms save lives. Studies are showing that there are equal amounts of false negatives as there are false positives. A false negative would convince someone they are safe. They would then be less concerned about other symptoms of breast cancer such as lumps, heat or redness. Even dimpling of the breast could be a sign that something is wrong, but if you are told it is nothing you will ignore it.

A false positive mean someone would seek treatment when they don’t need to. Breast cancer treatment usually includes surgery, chemotherapy and possibly radiation. All leave lasting impacts, sometimes deadly, on the body. The fear of having cancer causes extreme stress that can have lasting effects on the person and their loved ones. There is evidence that the stress and further testing from a false positive greatly increases your risk of future breast cancer.

Half of women have breast tissue that is too dense for a mammogram to show anything useful. Yet, these women are still encouraged to get regular mammograms to ‘protect’ them from cancer. There are some states that are trying to legislate that these women be informed that the mammograms will not do them any good, and may cause eventual harm.

Mammograms, if they worked, do not prevent breast cancer. At best they inform the person that they have the disease. There are other, less harmful, ways to detect breast cancer. Self-exams are the least invasive, followed by thermography. Self-exams can detect a lump at half the size that a mammogram can. Thermography can detect it as small as a few cells. Cancer cells give off a lot of heat. Thermography is a simple heat sensitive picture from the outside of the body. The biggest problem with thermography is that insurance companies don’t cover it.

Preventing cancer of any type comes down to lifestyle. Sugar, whether artificial or natural is a known cancer causing agent. So are artificial food colors and preservatives. Eating an all-natural, organic diet is the best known prevention. So is getting some form of mild exercise every day. More intense exercise is even better, unless you overdo it. Including some fermented foods is also very helpful.  So is getting sunshine on a regular basis. In short, everything you ought to do to live an active and healthy lifestyle is going to decrease your chances of developing cancer. Isn’t that what prevention is all about?

Ebola is now in the United States

Ebola is now in the United States. There is very little happening to prevent its spread to the general population. So what is the average person to do?

First of all we need to remember that Ebola is a virus. Antibiotics are not going to do anything. We have to look at ways to combat viruses. Secondly it is spread like a virus. The news says it is only with contact with body fluids of an infected person. What we forget is that viruses can linger on surfaces for a long time before they die. This means tables, doors, bathroom faucets, countertops. If a sick person sneezes in a room all the surfaces in the room now have a coating of virus on them. This includes the clothing of anyone in the room. They leave that room they take that virus with them.

Unless we are able to move our families out into the boonies where we never have to come in contact with another human being there is no sure fire way to prevent exposure.

Our first defense is a strong immune system.  If your family catches every illness that comes around that is a pretty good indication that the family members have weak immune systems. There are several things that we need to have strong immunesystems.
·         Hydration! We each need half our body weight in ounces per day. Anything less and we weaken our immune systems.
·         Eliminate sugars! Sugar in any form weakens the immune system.
·         Eliminate Stress! Stress weakens the immune system.
·         Get enough sleep! Lack of sleep weakens the immune system.
·         Eat your vegetables! Organic, raw foods are great for strengthening the immune system.
·         Exercise! Even gentle movement helps!

Our second area of defense is cleanliness. The anti-bacterial soaps are not going to do any good, and may even lower the immune system. Most of the bacteria in and on our bodies are beneficial. When we kill all bacteria we kill the good ones as well. We need to find ways to kill the virus rather than bacteria.  One way to do it is to wash your hands with warm water in the bathroom, then outside the bathroom door spray your hands with a diluted form of colloidal silver. Then rub them together and let them air dry. This will kill the majority of viruses. It may not take care of a full-fledged infection, but then again it just might. Nobody has done any research on it. Shipments of colloidal silver have been turned back, which doesn’t make sense to the majority of us. If it isn’t going to do any harm why not give it a try?

Vitamin C is another way to fight viruses. There are different forms of it, so look for a high potency natural product. I keep some wild rose hips on hand for emergency use.

Can we depend on the government to protect us? So far they aren’t doing a very good job.

Can we depend on big pharma to protect us? So far they seem to be chasing their tails.

Can we depend on ourselves? As long as we use common sense and keep things in perspective it is the best plan out there, but we have to start now. We need to prepare to isolate ourselves from the rest of the world if someone in our family becomes ill. This means having some high quality food in the house, enough to last for weeks or more. It also means having protective gear on hand so that we can clean up after a sick person without exposing other family members or the garbage man. Will the sewage treatment plant be able to clean the water flushed down the toilet, or will that just spread it to the municipal water sources? Those boonies are looking better and better.
