Tap Water In California Shown To Cause Cancer

indexBy Sara Middleton

Uranium. Radium. Arsenic. These chemicals are known to cause cancer. Now, thanks to a shocking study from the Environmental Working Group (EWG), we now know that these and other harmful contaminants are found in California’s public tap water.

The study was just published in the latest edition of the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Health. EWG’s findings are also consistent with at least one other study out of North Carolina. The major takeaway? Consumption of this tap water is tied to a stunning number of cancer cases over the course of a typical generation.

Drinking contaminated tap water puts your health at risk, increases the chances of this major disease

In their study, the EWG team evaluated tap water samples from over 2,700 public water systems in California, which provide at least 98% of the west coast state’s drinking water. As mentioned, these samples contained harmful, carcinogenic chemicals, such as chloroform, tetrachloroethylene, and hexavalent chromium (in addition to the ones listed above).

The study’s authors were then were able to determine the risk of getting cancer as a result of drinking this contaminated water by taking yearly average contamination levels between the years of 2011 and 2015.

As the authors state: “This results in an estimated number of 221 annual cancer cases due to drinking water contaminants in California,” or about 15,500 cases of cancer over the course of about 70 years (the average lifetime).

You’re reading this right: 15,500+ cases of cancer in California directly caused by drinking contaminated tap water. It’s frightening.

The EWG also state that 495 public water systems in California are considered “high risk.”  What they mean by this is that the tap water from these areas will cause cancer in about 1 in 1,000 people over the course of a lifetime.

They also state that 43 public water systems have a relative cancer risk a high as 4 in 1,000. The EWG does not specify which communities are at highest risk, however they do indicate that they include “communities of less than a thousand residents and one water system serving a population of 19,000.”

The American Cancer Society estimates that as many as 40% of Americans will receive a cancer diagnosis at some point in their lifetime. Based on the recent revelations from the EWG, we can’t help but surmise that the chemicals in our public tap water has something to do with this sobering statistic.

Bayer Admits That Monsanto Had a Shady Agenda Toward ‘Influential’ People


By Sara Middleton

Ahhhh – there’s nothing like the smell of propaganda early in the morning. At least this must be what the higher-ups at the Bayer company think as they start their days trying to figure out how to spin pesticide data and influence the public.

Now, in breaking news, this Big Agra conglomerate – who in 2016 bought Monsanto for a cool $63 billion – is being forced to address some shady behavior exhibited by its newest acquisition. Turns out that Monsanto’s recently-revealed actions indicate a highly plausible attempt to inaccurately change the conversation about pesticide “safety.”

Pesticide secrets: A big company with nothing to hide wouldn’t do this – right?

A team of French prosecutors can be credited with blowing the lid open on a major snafu for the beleaguered Monsanto corporation and its parent company Bayer. Earlier this month, they filed a complaint alleging that Monsanto kept dossiers – let’s call them “cheat sheets” for people – on approximately 200 French journalists, lawmakers, and other folks deemed “influential” by the pesticide business.

These dossiers contained non-public information about private citizens!

Monsanto’s intent?  Simple: to access these people, influence their thoughts on pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals of their ilk – and in turn change the global public’s view on these known harmful environmental toxins.

Sounds a bit desperate, right?  Think about it: the World Health Organization officially recognizes glyphosate (the prime ingredient in the weed killer Roundup, a Monsanto superstar) as a “probable carcinogenic.”  And, this happened four years ago.

Yet, despite this, Monsanto has still been trying to propagandize their enormously head-in-the-sand message that glyphosate has a “40-year history of safe use.”

Now Bayer has to act like the chagrined parent playing clean-up in the wake of this PR nightmare. We’ll at least give them some credit for owning up to the reality of these dossiers’ existence, as well as acknowledging that these are probably just the tip of the iceberg.

Bayer’s very own head of public affairs and sustainability, Matthias Berninger, made this eyebrow-raising statement to journalists: “It’s safe to say that other countries in Europe were affected by lists…I assume that all [European Union] member states could potentially be affected.”

He went on to indicate that while there weren’t signs of overt illegal activity, Monsanto was likely guilty of unfair access and use of private data.  Even so, French public-sector research institutes including Inra and CNRS are reportedly planning to file criminal complaints regarding mishandling of their employees’ personal data.

As if questionably obtained and disseminated private data about public citizens wasn’t bad enough, there’s even more damning evidence against Monsanto coming out:

The company alleged paid off well-known cancer researcher, Sir Richard Doll, for over two decades. The bribery alleged included a “consultancy fee” of $1,500 per day back in the mid-1980s – right around the time when Sir Doll miraculously concluded that Monsanto’s “Agent Orange” chemical didn’t cause cancer. Hmmm.

This despite the fact that the International Agency for Research on Cancer and the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) both report that Agent Orange contains chemicals known to be cancer-causing.

That this scientist and researcher failed to disclose this financial information is damnable. But even more damnable is the fact that Monsanto allowed for (encouraged) this kind of biased research – something which has likely contributed to the harm, ill-health, and death of thousands of people.

Here’s the takeaway: major companies will go to extreme lengths to protect their profits and reputation. Beware of the hype and propaganda. https://www.naturalhealth365.com/monsanto-bayer-2994.html

Catastrophic Season for U.S. & Australian Farmers

Wet_Field_Public_DomainBy Ice Age Farmer

It’s Official: Catastrophic Season for US / Australia Starts Importing Wheat

USDA data confirms a record poor planting of corn, as Australia imports wheat for the first time in 12 years, Italy declares natural disasters due to flooding, and Switzerland encounters frosts later than in 70 years. As crop losses intensify, food prices are rising, and you must start growing your own food!

“The worst ever that we’ve seen” – Wettest Since 1895 – Grand Solar Minimum

An inflection point has been reached with respect to the collapse of modern agriculture as we enter the Grand Solar Minimum and the climate changes — and the system is responding by clamping down on truth. As the US experiences its worst planting on record, China is facing a one-two punch from African Swine Fever and Armyworm. Food prices are rising. Canada officially reports a 14-year high of arctic sea ice levels. Will ASF come to US, and inspire forced vaccines for livestock?

TECHNO-DICTATORSHIP: APPLE Bans Publishing Climate Truth Instead of Carbon Lies

Satellite-Gps-Space-Earth-Planet-1By Mike Adams

Apple now disallows all dissenting views that collide with whatever lies the quack science pushers are floating on any given day, including all the transgender lies that now routinely claim that men can give birth. (Seriously, that’s now a thing in the main stream media.) Attempting to educate people about the benefits of carbon dioxide is now a “crime” in the Apple-verse.

As part of the accelerating techno-dictatorship sweeping across the online world, Apple News has banned Natural News for expressing views which Apple claims are “rejected by the scientific community.”

This ban was received shortly after Natural News published a rebuttal to the junk science climate change narrative which falsely claims that carbon dioxide is a poison that will destroy the planet. (Only someone who is scientifically illiterate or completely brainwashed could believe such a falsehood.)

Natural News dares to state the simple scientific fact — now confirmed by NASA — that carbon dioxide boosts the growth of green plants all across the Earth. This is not allowed by the techno-fascists of the Left who run Apple and insist that CO2 is somehow a poison that’s responsible for “climate change.”

Here’s the world map showing the increase in reforestation and greening, as cited by NASA and published the journal Nature: Climate Change:

Note that this image shows an increase in “greening” across every continent, which NASA confirms is due to rising carbon dioxide, a fertilizer for plants.

Apple censors disagree with scientific reality and ban anyone who speaks the truth

Even though NASA has also admitted that CO2 is greening the Earth, Apple says that Natural News stories are diverging from the “scientific community,” somehow justifying Apple’s censorship of all news from Natural News, including the hundreds of articles each month that cite scientific journals.

Twitter Bans Quotes From Mother Teresa To Silence Pro-life Voices and Promote the Continued MASS MURDER of Human Babies

Texas Senator Ted Cruz ripped Twitter a new one during a recent Senate hearing, calling the social media giant to task for censoring a quote by Mother Teresa, of all people, which it dubbed as spreading the “hateful” message that abortion harms children and women.

A pro-life organization had originally tweeted a photo of Mother Teresa, along with the famous quote:

“Abortion is profoundly anti-women. Three quarters of its victims are women: Half the babies and all the mothers.”

And that’s it. There was no jab at Planned Parenthood; no statement of opposition to women who get abortions. Heck, the quote itself even refers to women who get abortions as “victims” rather than baby-murderers. And yet, neither the quote nor the image passed the “acceptable speech” parameters imposed by Twitter executives.

Openly advocating for baby murder is just fine with Twitter and Facebook, but standing up for women and children is not.

Quotes from Mother Theresa

When accepting her Nobel Peace Prize in 1979, she said:

“And I feel one thing I want to share with you all, the greatest destroyer of peace today is the cry of the innocent unborn child. For if a mother can murder her own child in her womb, what is left for you and for me to kill each other?”

She reiterated the sentiment at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C, on February 5, 1994:

“But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.”

Quotes fro Mother Teresa’s 5 Lessons:

It isn’t just those women and those babies that are affected, but all of us. Abortion certainly affects the fathers: “…that father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. The father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion.” It also affects the entire country where abortion is permitted: “Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.”

“Many people are very, very concerned with the children of India, with the children of Africa where quite a few die of hunger, and so on. Many people are also concerned about all the violence in this great country of the United States. These concerns are very good. But often these same people are not concerned with the millions who are being killed by the deliberate decision of their own mothers. And this is what is the greatest destroyer of peace today — abortion which brings people to such blindness.”

How Coca-Cola Controls and Manipulates Research

coca-cola-controls-researchBy Dr. Mercola

They’ve set up contracts with researchers allowing them to bury research they fund that might detract from their image or profits. With the ability to trumpet positive findings and bury negative ones, science has now become more like an exercise in public relations.

I’ve written about the collusion between industry and the U.S. federal regulatory agencies on many occasions throughout the years, and how industry-funded research simply tends to promote and support the industry agenda rather than shed truthful light on the benefits or risks of any given product.

In recent years, the hidden influence of The Coca-Cola Company over health and sugar science has been highlighted several times and, according to recent findings, it appears the company has not changed its secretive and deceptive ways, despite public assurances of transparency.

Documents obtained via Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests reveal Coca-Cola’s research agreements with certain universities give the company questionable rights over the research process, while other FOIA documents show Coca-Cola has an unreasonable amount of influence over the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Truly, having a public health organization that protects and supports industry rather than looking out for public health is worse than having no public health protection agency at all, and making health decisions on Coca-Cola funded research is bound to lead public health in the wrong direction — which is exactly what’s been happening.

Harmful Effects of Fluoride Continue to Mount

harmful-effects-of-fluoride-continue-to-mountResearch linking water fluoridation to lower IQ, ADHD and thyroid problems continues to grow, and a Fluoride Action Network campaign is building momentum to warn moms-to-be of the dangers of fluoride exposure during pregnancy.


By Stuart Cooper, Campaign Director, Fluoride Action Network

Ending the addition of hazardous fluoridation chemicals — primarily hydrofluorosilicic acid — to the public’s drinking water will be one of the greatest public health achievements of the 21st century.

With each passing month, the case against artificial fluoridation builds as new research showing harm is published, legal action advances, overfeeds and spills are exposed and local fluoride-free campaigns spread throughout the world.

Mounting Evidence of Harm

A number of significant studies — two of which were funded by the U.S. government (the National Institutes of Health, or NIH) — have been published in the last eight months linking fluoride exposure to lowered IQ, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and thyroid problems, and showing that pregnant women and infants in “optimally” fluoridated communities are exposed to significantly more fluoride than those in non-fluoridated communities.

In February 2019, a string of news stories — triggered by a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report admitting that at least 40% of children are overexposed to fluoride — focused on kids swallowing too much toothpaste and neglected the significant exposure from fluoridated tap water.

Regardless, the defenders of water fluoridation are missing the real story. Dental fluorosis is a biomarker of overexposure to fluoride and the “elephant in the room” is what damage fluoride is doing to other tissues.

Recent scientific research indicates that exposure to fluoridated water may lower thyroid function, particularly in those with an iodine deficiency. A new study also found that significantly more infants, particularly those under 6 months of age, will exceed the upper limit set by the Institute of Medicine for fluoride when consuming formula reconstituted with the “optimal” 0.7 parts per million (ppm), greatly increasing their risk of side effects.

There are now over 350 published studies on fluoride’s effect on the brain: 130 human studies, over 200 animal studies and 33 cell studies. This includes a major U.S.-government funded mother-offspring study conducted in Mexico City. This rigorous study — which controlled for many possible confounders — found a very strong association between fluoride levels in mothers’ urine and lowered IQ for their offspring.

The fluoride levels in this study also correspond to levels in pregnant women living in “optimally” fluoridated areas in Canada according to an October 2018 paper.

The same research team at University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health has since released additional findings that confirm and strengthen their 2017 fetus/IQ study. Very young children, aged 1 to 3 years, also show loss of IQ. In other words, their study now covers the ages of the offspring from 1 to 12 years.

For the ages of 1 to 3 years, for every 1 mg/L increase in the urine fluoride level of their pregnant mothers, the children averaged 2.4-point lower IQ scores. The finding was statistically significant and accounted for potential confounding factors.

They concluded, “Our findings add to our team’s recently published report on prenatal fluoride and cognition at ages 4 and 6–12 years by suggesting that higher in utero exposure to F has an adverse impact on offspring cognitive development that can be detected earlier, in the first three years of life.”

This was followed up by another published paper that linked higher levels of urinary fluoride during pregnancy with more symptoms of ADHD — the second study to do so.

Glyphosate: A Trajectory of Human Misery

unnamedBy Heidi Stevenson
Glyphosate has likely caused more damage to human health than any other chemical ever produced. Indeed, it is probably a cause of the explosion in chronic diseases. Surely civilization cannot be maintained when the average person is irrevocably ill. This trajectory of human misery must come to an end.

Roundup Ready GM crops have become the mainstay of Agribusiness. These include soy, beet sugar, and corn—which supply the bulk of the processed food industry. High fructose corn syrup, implicated in the diabetes epidemic, is produced mostly with GM corn. Cotton is genetically engineered and its oil has entered the food supply.

Glyphosate is systemic in plants, so it cannot be washed off. If it’s used on a crop, it will be in the food produced from it. All the soy, sugar, cotton, and corn that ends up in packaged foods is carrying glyphosate into our bodies.

Food and dairy animals are raised in concentrated animal feed operations (CAFOs). The bulk of their diets consists of GM grain crops. Grain and sugar crops take up higher levels of glyphosate than other crops. Therefore, the flesh, eggs, and milk of CAFO-raised animals are contaminated with glyphosate, which enters the food pipeline.

Glyphosate is used not only on Roundup Ready crops, but also on glyphosate-sensitive sugar cane and wheat shortly before harvest, when it acts as a dessicant. It’s also used as a dessicant on Roundup Ready sugar beets, canola, and cottonseed for oils, among others.

The perception that glyphosate is not toxic in humans results in difficulty obtaining figures on how much glyphosate ends up in the food supply. The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) Pesticide Data Program is voluntary. Searching for information on residues for the year 2010, the most recent year for which data is provided, shows residue levels for all pesticides except glyphosate and another organophosphate, glufosinate. The USDA has simply not monitored residue levels for either of these herbicides, though they will this year (2013), but only for a small sampling of glyphosate residues in soy.

NASA Declares Carbon Dioxide Is GREENING The Earth…Huge Gains Since 1982


By Natural News

A satellite study spanning three decades confirms that carbon dioxide is re-greening the Earth, spurring huge gains in green plant mass across the globe since 1982.

If we want to “green” the Earth, we should support CO2. But the climate change alarmists want to eliminate CO2 — a move that would annihilate plant life and collapse nearly every ecosystem planet-wide.

In direct contradiction to the scare stories about carbon dioxide being relentlessly pushed by the climate change alarmists, a scientific study published in Nature Climate Change and highlighted by NASA reveals that rising carbon dioxide levels are having a tremendously positive impact on the re-greening of planet Earth over the last three decades, with some regions experiencing over a 50% increase in plant life.
