NaturalNews – David Gutierrez – Roundup Hars Human Endocrine System At Levels Allowed In Drinking Water, Study Shows – 6 April 2015

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) The blockbuster herbicide Roundup causes damage to the human endocrine system at levels that people could easily — and legally — be exposed to, according to a new study conducted by researchers from Flinders University in Australia. The researchers found that, in a laboratory study, Roundup killed cells responsible for producing progesterone in women, leading to a drop in levels of that hormone. The effects were seen at Roundup levels currently permitted in Australian drinking water, which 1 mg/L. The US Environmental Protection Agency’s drinking water limit for glyphosate is 0.7 mg/L; however, that does not take into account the other ingredients of Roundup.

Notably, the researchers found that Roundup was even more toxic than its active ingredient (glyphosate) alone, suggesting that other ingredients in Roundup work synergistically with glyphosate and pointing to a problem with current chemical regulatory frameworks.

NaturalNews – Jennifer Lilley – Mandatory Chickenpox Vaccination Increases Disease Rates, Study Shows – 12 January 2015

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) Once again, the completely illogical debacle concerning the world of vaccinations has surfaced.

By now, you know they’ve come under fire by those who are adamant that they do more harm than good. Countless people have developed irreversible health problems and even died shortly after receiving a vaccination, which the medical community chalks up to “coincidence” or cleverly crafted wording that a patient should have known about.

Take, for example, the young Florida girl who made headlines last year when she received the flu vaccine. Marysue Grivna, now 10 years old, experienced paralysis and vision loss within a few short days of receiving the shot. She was ultimately diagnosed with a debilitating brain disease called acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM). Today, she’s confined to a wheelchair or bed and is almost entirely nonverbal.(1) Continue reading

Insecticides Cause Honeybee Colony Collapse, Study Shows – 10 May 2014

RT logoScientists are closer to pinpointing the cause of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), the disease killing off honeybees and threatening pollination of the world’s crops. Their research is blaming two popular insecticides.

Researchers at Harvard University’s School of Public Health looked at the effect of two neonicotinoid insecticides on 18 colonies in central Massachusetts. They divided the colonies into three groups: an untreated control group, a group treated with imidacloprid and a group treated with clothianidin. It was a continuation of 2012 research by the same group that showed that “sub-lethal exposure of imidacloprid and clothianidin affected the winterization of healthy honey bee colonies that subsequently leads to CCD,” the study says.

Honeybee hives are generally inactive during the winter, when the colony survives by creating a winter cluster. The bees bundle together for warmth, which self-regulates the internal temperature in the cluster’s center, according to the Back Yard Beekeepers Association. Because of this cycle of inactivity, researchers focused on how well the 18 colonies rebounded from their winter cluster.
