In the featured video, professor Matthew Walker, Ph.D., founder and director of the University of California Berkeley’s Center for Human Sleep Science and author of the book “Why We Sleep: The New Science of Sleep and Dreams,” shares the latest discoveries about sleep and how it impacts virtually every area of your physical and mental health.

I read Walker’s book last fall, and share his view that sleep is profoundly important — even more important than diet and exercise. I say this because diet and exercise will have minimal effects on your body if you are constantly exhausted and it is unlikely you will have the energy to eat well or exercise if you are always tired. Beyond that, sleeplessness has been shown to contribute to chronic illnesses such as dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, diabetesheart disease and obesity.

In his book, Walker suggests insomnia is “one of the most pressing and prevalent medical issues facing modern society,” yet it is rarely acted on in ways reflecting its importance. He notes the “sleep aid” industry, encompassing prescription sleeping pills and over-the-counter sleep medications, is a $30 billion-a-year industry in the U.S.

Sadly, desperate people are putting money toward drugs that have not only been shown to be ineffective for solving sleep problems, but also are known to increase your risk of cancer, heart disease and stroke. Most adults need at least eight hours of high-quality sleep a night, and children and teenagers even more. The reality is about 1 in 3 Americans gets less than seven hours of sleep a night and more than 83 million adults in the U.S. are sleep-deprived.1,……………

 

Sleep-Deprived Drivers More Dangerous Than Those Under the Influence

……With respect to sleep deprivation and auto accidents, Walker speaks passionately about this subject in his book. He says one person dies every hour in the U.S. due to a fatigue-related error, and vehicular accidents caused by drowsy driving exceed those caused by alcohol and drugs combined. If you drink alcohol or take medications that make you sleepy and then drive, you are exponentially increasing your risk of suffering a crash, injury or death due to drowsy driving. States Walker

Brain-damaging neurotoxic pesticide found in hundreds of foods: EPA allows pesticide lobby to dictate policy

If you thought that buying organic fruits and vegetables was a waste of money, you might want to think again. Test results released by the FDA have shown the presence of a neurotoxic pesticide known as chlorpyrifos in samples taken from more than 300 different foods.

This alarming data comes from a series of tests carried out from late 2014 to late 2015 by the FDA’s Pesticide Residue Monitoring Program, which tests thousands of foods both domestic and imported for pesticides each year. More than 50 different food crops were found to contain chlorpyrifos.

The FDA tested more than 5,500 human foods in total. Their testing is very comprehensive, and it even looks at some of the less popular varieties of produce not used in USDA tests. Overall, they found that around half of domestic foodand 43 percent of the food we import contained pesticide residues. This is a rise over the figures noted in 2010 and 2005.

Chlorpyrifos was the fourth most commonly detected pesticide of the 207 different pesticides detected in the foods. They found the dangerous substance on foods like limes, rice, and hot chili peppers that are regularly consumed by Americans and Mexicans, for example. EPA analysis has previously found that the average American consumes far more chlorpyrifos than the levels that are considered safe, and those who eat certain foods have a higher risk….. Read More

The Murder of Frank Olson and the Beginning on Germ Warfare on the American People (Chemtrails)

The protagonist of the X-Files Fox Mulder, would say, “The truth is out there.” The truth about what? The truth about the night the CIA murdred bacteriologist, Frank Olson, because he could not be trusted to keep the CIA’s dirty little secret.

Russia and China Accuse the US of Waging a Biowar on North Korea In 1953

In 1953, the Soviet Union and China accued the United States of waging a biowar against North Korea in which millions died. The communist super-powers alleged that the US biowar actions against NK were conducted during the Korean war. Much to my surprise there are several consistent accounts of the secret biowar against North Korea….. Read More

Does the US have a Free Market Medical System?

By Hunter Lewis

In this Fox article, Edward K. Glassman, my long ago Harvard classmate, author of Dow 36,000 (predicting Dow at that level by 2005), and current director of the George W. Bush Institute, extolls our free market medical system. The first reader to comment agrees that we have a “ free market” system, but thinks that “ profit based healthcare” should be “outlawed.” Another reader thinks that we actually have “socialized medicine.”

So what do we have? I think the most apt description would be crony capitalist medicine, one in which powerful special interests conspire with government officials to create legally mandated monopolies, with the specific goal of thwarting free market competition.

Here is how it actually works:…. Read More

ROAD RAGE EXPLAINED? CELL PHONE RADIATION LOWERS IMPULSE CONTROL, DISRUPTS BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER

Drivers exposed to high radiation levels when phones try to stay connected to towers. Mind blown yet?

Cell phone radiation adversely affecting the brain (and everything else) is not breaking news. There has been credible U.S. military research that has proven this since 1972.

Warnings in regard to drivers being exposed to higher levels of radiation while using cell phones is not breaking news either. See November 9, 2009: Dr. Oz on Good Morning America.

“… don’t talk when you’re driving. In addition to the dangers of being distracted, people who are behind the wheel while they’re on their cell phones may face an increased RF exposure risk. That’s because the phone signal must move to several wireless towers. Those waves have to boost up from your cell phone to find the towers,” Oz explained. “If you’re in an elevator, same thing.”….

Researchers Incredulous Over Study That Finds Statin Drugs Negate Mortality Reduction Achieved By Taking Multivitamins

By Bill Sardi:

 

Incredulity: unwilling or unable to believe something.

Saying the results of their study are “implausible” and should be “viewed with appropriate skepticism,” researchers are in frank denial over a study which shows a so-called “high-dose” multivitamin formula drastically reduces mortality rates among post-heart attack patients, a beneficial effect that was completely negated by concomitant use of statin cholesterol-lowering drugs.

The study, published in the American Heart Journal, was conducted among adults who had experienced a prior heart attack and had undergone intravenous chelation therapy.  Vitamin and mineral replacement is customarily prescribed after chelation therapy.

A six-tablets-a-day amped-up multivitamin regimen produced a 38% reduction in risk for death or other mortal cardiovascular events like stroke.  Unexpectedly, this beneficial effect was completely abolished by simultaneous use of statin drugs + multivitamin.

An even more demonstrable reduction in non-mortal cardiovascular events (heart attack, stroke) was tabulated (54% risk reduction) when the high-dose multivitamin was compared against inactive placebo use.

A prior study that employed so-called “high-dose” vitamins and minerals among post-heart attack patients only showed a modest “non-significant” reduction in the risk for death, recurrent heart attack, stroke or re-hospitalization of 3% (27% for multivitamin group, 30% for placebo group), 11% relative risk reduction).

The study is contrary to an earlier report that concluded dietary supplements do not produce clear evidence of a beneficial effect on all-cause mortality or cardiovascular disease.  The results from that study caused cardiologists to advise the public to stop wasting money on vitamin supplements.  That statement may have been premature.

The multivitamin was characterized as a “high-dose” dietary supplement because the provision of nutrients exceeded the Daily Value (DV).  However, the Daily Value is intended for healthy individuals and amounts that exceed the Daily Value (DV) should be considered inadequate for individuals who face health challenges such as repair of scarred heart tissue.

Furthermore, post-heart attack patients are often placed on medications that deplete essential nutrients and require greater-than-dietary intake of selected nutrients such as zinc (depleted by blood pressure medicines), coenzyme Q10 (depleted by statin cholesterol-lowering and beta blocker drugs), and minerals such as magnesium (depleted by diuretics).

The mega-dose multivitamin regimen provided 1200 milligrams of vitamin C (2000% of the DV); 100 milligrams of vitamin B1 (6667% of DV); 200 mg niacin (1000% of DV); 100 micrograms of vitamin B12 (1667% of DV); 400 milligrams of vitamin B5 pantothenic acid (4000% of DV); 50 mg of vitamin B6 (2500% of DV) and 20 milligrams of zinc (133% of DV).

The high-dose multivitamin was iron-free, possibly an important factor given iron overload is linked with acute heart attacks (as measured by ferritin iron storage protein levels).

Cholesterol levels were obviously far lower among multivitamin users taking statin drugs, yet the mortality reduction was erased when both drug and dietary supplement were combined.

Researchers recommend that physicians and their heart attack patients wait until a more definitive study is completed in 2021 before altering drug and supplement regimens…. Read Original Story

Are You Magnesium Deficient? The 9 signs low levels of this key mineral could be ruining your life


MFP Commentary:
 
This should be in the class of “things that they don’t teach in medical school”
 

AMA monopoly doctors will almost certainly hand you an SSRI  (here) to correct a mineral deficiency. AMA medicine can often be dangerous to your health after all is it the 3rd leading cause of death in the US.

(The 70%  figure below is taken from a sick population a more accurate number would be more like 95%  of us are deficient in this mineral.)

 Daily Mail Article:

(Research suggests 70% of us have low levels of the essential mineral)

 

Insomnia, depression, cravings and tiredness are the bane of many of our lives. But they could be signs of a simple problem: magnesium deficiency.

The Daily Mail’s Dr Michael Moseley addressed the issue recently when he appeared on BBC Radio Two’s Breakfast Show with Chris Evans – exploring how the humble mineral could treat a range of common ailments including migraines, PMT and constipation.

Yet it doesn’t get a lot of attention. Although magnesium is found in brown rice, green leafy vegetables, beans, avocados, almonds and dark chocolate, most of us don’t get enough of the amount we need.

One study of 8,000 Britons by Mineral Check discovered around 70 per cent had low levels, Healthista reports.

Likewise, the Government’s most recent National Diet and Nutrition Survey revealed that most children and adolescents fail to get the recommended daily allowance with 53 per cent of teenage girls showing levels of gross deficiency.

Yet magnesium is an essential mineral which plays a crucial role in more than 300 different enzymatic reactions in the body each day. Research suggests it can help achieve a restful night’s sleep and reduce the symptoms of restless leg syndrome as well as improve chronic pain, tiredness, mood swings and migraines.

Here are some key signs of magnesium deficiency not to miss… Read More

This information has the potential to save millions of lives: Diet Against Disease

MFP commentary:
This is an 8 series documentary  on the obvious: That the body is a self repairing  entity. If given the raw materials to do so.

The AMA medical monopoly does not address the cause of disease, instead it makes money for big pharma by pushing it’s poison that does nothing, but cover up symptoms. They work by shutting down chemical pathways and causing tons of collateral damage downstream in the body.  These “standards of care”  are causing the deaths of millions, yet no one is being held culpable much less being prosecuted.

Dr Mercola has outdone himself with this film.

Before, or even after after watching this documentary  you will want to go to our Health Resources  page and among other resources check out the Weston A Price Brochure entitled, “Principles of Healthy Diets”. It is literally worth it’s weight in gold.

Busting Open the Chemtrail Denial Subterfuge

Anonymous by name, but no doubt to be found within the ranks of military industrial proponents and psychopathic secret society hegemons: those who hide behind the 1991 Hughes Aircraft atmospheric aerosol patent. The patent that formalized an engineering technique which alters the climate and sickens the planetary population with its debilitating fall-out.
 
There is a red line test that almost instantly reveals people’s awareness about these, and related, military activities. Just put the question “What do you think about 9/11? And how do you feel about chemtrails?” You might be surprised to find that those who you consider reasonably intelligent and quite thoughtful individuals, appear to be neither when asked to think about these two actualities.
 
This response to the first question would be quite typical “It’s obvious, 9/11 was an al-Qaeda mission led by bin Laden. There’s nothing suspicious about it.” And on chemtrails “They don’t exist”.
 
What one runs into when confronted with such an unquestioning response, creates a genuine human dilemma. Where can one turn if fellow human beings are unwilling to examine, in any detail, incriminating evidence that stands behind such crime’s against humanity? …READ MORE:
