Colorado healthcare workers to be fired if they refuse mandatory flu shots
The noose is rapidly closing in on the collective neck of health freedom in America, as illustrated by a new state mandate in Colorado that unconstitutionally forces hospital employees to submit to flu vaccinations or else lose their jobs. As reported by CBS 4 News in Denver, workers at hospitals across the state no longer have the option to choose for themselves whether or not to get jabbed with the untested annual flu vaccine -- their only choice in the matter is to either take the shot by the end of the year or else get fired....[full story]

Child interrogated, suspended from public school for having kombucha tea in lunchbox
A Southern California mother was shocked to learn recently that her elementary-age son was pulled out of school, interrogated by police, and threatened with five days of suspension for bringing into the school's cafeteria the kombucha tea she packed for him in his lunch box. Sarah Pope of the Healthy Home Economist reports that the young boy was ultimately vindicated of his non-crime of bringing kombucha to school, but only after the boy's mother contacted Pope to explain the issue, which she brought attention to recently on her blog....[full story]

Americans eat more than their body weight in GMOs every year, study shows
The consumer advocacy organization Environmental Working Group (EWG) has put out a new paper that estimates the average person's yearly consumption of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs). And based on the figures, which EWG admits are very likely understated, the average person consumes more than their own body weight's worth of GMOs every single year, a shocking reality with unknown, long-term health consequences....[full story]

Scientists 'confident' they have effective vegetable-based treatment for breast cancer
Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is one of the most aggressive and deadly forms of breast cancer. It is harder to detect, grows the fastest, spreads earlier to other parts of the body and recurs more often. What's more, the arsenal of drugs and chemicals currently used by mainstream medicine to treat TNBC are so toxic that patients often can't tolerate the treatment -- and chemotherapy is often ineffective anyway....[full story]

Vitamin D insufficiency promotes chronic disease and increases risk of early death by 50 percent
Medical researchers have been sounding the alarm about the importance of maintaining optimal vitamin D levels from childhood through to the adult years, but millions of aging adults remain grossly deficient in this critical hormone-based nutrient. Vitamin D has demonstrated efficacy in preventing diseases from cancer to cardiovascular disease and dementia. Every cell in the body is now known to have vitamin D receptors where the nutrient provides an essential key to accurate DNA and cellular replication....[full story]

Three compelling reasons not to wear synthetic perfumes
Three compelling reasons not to wear synthetic perfumes by Danna Norek (NaturalNews) Our cultural fascination with fragrance has spanned back thousands of years. Our ancestors did not spray a multitude of new-era chemicals on their body to achieve an appealing scent though. Instead, they often used plant materials to achieve desirable scents. Modern times have spawned literally thousands of chemicals for use in fragrance.When you apply anything labeled with a "fragrance" ingredient today, you can be assured you are subjecting yourself to anywhere from tens to hundreds of various chemicals. This includes lotions, which you may apply to your entire body, facial skin care products and other beauty and self care items that you may use every single day, multiplying your exposure exponentially. None of these chemicals need to be directly disclosed in labeling since they are considered proprietary in nature.Today, the perfume industry is worth an estimated 5.1 billion dollars as consumers continue to buy fragrances and perfumed products. Why should you not partake in using these synthetic fragrance products? 1. At least 900 of the 3,000 fragrance chemicals used are toxic There are somewhere around 3,000 chemicals that have been identified as being used in today's modern fragrances. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has identified at least 900 of these chemicals that are known toxins.This means that these chemicals can cause problems at the cellular levels once your body absorbs them transdermally (through the skin). Some popular brands of perfume have been found to be toxic to the respiratory tract when inhaled and the nervous system which occurs both through inhalation of airborne particles and transdermal absorption. 2. Perfume linked to depressive disorder in chemically sensitive individuals More and more people are being diagnosed with chemical sensitivity these days. This is likely due to our near-constant exposure. Chemically sensitive individuals may have more than allergic reactions and toxicity at stake. Studies have linked perfume use with severe depressive disorder and anxiety in individuals who exhibit sensitivities to chemical fragrances.Since these chemicals can have varying effects on the nerve cells, it is no surprise that they also may impair brain function. Scents evoke emotions since our emotional center is closely tied to our olfactory sense. Those who are chemically intolerant may have extreme reactions to the multitude of scents they are bombarded with every day. 3. Thyroid and hormone disruption, respiratory toxicity and headaches Many of the top selling fragrances on the market today, used by literally millions of women worldwide, contain unregulated and largely unstudied chemicals. The most recent study was commissioned by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.It found several chemicals in the top selling perfumes that can cause damage to the thyroid gland. The thyroid regulates several important metabolic processes in the body. Thyroid disorders can cause obesity, problems losing or maintaining a healthy weight, serious hair loss, mood disorders and feelings of lethargy.Chemicals that interfere with healthy thyroid activity may also promote cancer of this important gland. Since it is the largest of the endocrine glands, it has some very important processes to control and therefore, it is utterly important that we keep this gland healthy and in top operating condition.The thyroid is responsible for controlling how fast our body goes through our energy stores. It also plays an important role in producing much-needed proteins and controls how sensitive our bodies are to the plethora of other hormones that are present at any given time.Many of the chemicals in perfumes present a dual problem for the thyroid in that they can add more synthetic hormones (in the form of synthetic and harmful estrogens) to our system. In addition, they often can cause damage to the very gland that helps control our sensitivity to these excessive hormones which only compounds the problem.Sources for this article include:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_perfumehttp://www.preventcancer.com/consumers/cosmetics/fragrances.htmhttp://safecosmetics.org/article.php?id=644...[full story]

Finding a holistic dentist to safely remove mercury amalgam fillings
Most people looking for a holistic dentist are searching for someone specializing in mercury amalgam removal, or looking for a practitioner who uses non-toxic products for routine dental care. The presence of mercury in the body causes a wide range of serious health problems, and removing amalgams is important for helping individuals reclaim good health. Many dentists still don't agree that amalgam fillings cause health problems for people. For those dentists that are proponents of mercury amalgam removal, there are a variety of specific protocols that should be followed for optimal safety during filling removal. Interviewing the dentist and his staff beforehand is important for a better understanding of what to expect during your procedure....[full story]

Probiotics help bolster immunity, repair intestinal health, and support healthy pregnancy
The microflora in the gut is intimately linked with the health and immunity of individuals of all ages, health statuses, and environments. Hundreds of different species (both beneficial and pathogenic) live symbiotically in the colons of humans. The beneficial microbiota are known to produce vitamin K and B vitamins, aid in digesting foods, help neutralize toxins, and preventing the pathogenic bacteria from dominating. Now, researchers are showing how supplementing with probiotics can bolster immunity, improve intestinal health, and support a healthy pregnancy....[full story]

And one of the best ways to avoid getting cancer is to fortify your body with a robust nutritional profile rich in cancer-fighting "superfoods."...[full story]
