Do antidepressants increase serotonin?
One in six American adults takes an antidepressant, a 400 percent increase since the early 1990s. Most of these drugs, including Prozac, fall into the category of SSRIs—selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors—based on the theory that low levels of serotonin (a neurotransmitter in the brain) lead to depression. But researchers at University College London analyzed tens of thousands of patients suffering from depression and found “no convincing evidence” of a link with serotonin. The review, published in Molecular Psychiatry (July 2022), concluded that there is no difference in serotonin levels between healthy and depressed people. According to Professor Joanna Moncrieff, a consultant psychiatrist who led the study, “After a vast amount of research over several decades, there is no convincing evidence depression is caused by serotonin abnormalities, particularly by lower levels or reduced activity of serotonin.” The study demolishes the rationale for prescribing Prozac and similar drugs, which have numerous side effects including nausea, headaches, anxiety, insomnia, drowsiness, sexual dysfunction, loss of appetite, rashes, increased blood pressure, seizures, increased risk of suicidal thinking and severe addiction. What a deal! SSRIs don’t work, cause terrible side effects and are based on a false premise. Here’s our prescription for depression: a good breakfast of bacon and eggs, lots of butter, cod liver oil, raw milk, adequate unrefined salt, grassfed meats and liver, plenty of sunshine and exercise in the out of doors.
Worst pesticide foods
The Environmental Working Group has issued its new list of fruits and vegetables containing the highest levels of pesticides (www.ewg.org/foodnews/dirty-dozen.php). Strawberries top the list, followed by spinach and kale (major ingredients in popular smoothies), then nectarines, apples, grapes, peppers, cherries, peaches, pears, celery (watch out, you celery juice fans!) and tomatoes. Potatoes come in at number thirteen. According to the USDA, thirty-five different pesticides and herbicides have been found on conventional potatoes: six are known or probable carcinogens; twelve are suspected hormone disrupters; seven are neurotoxins; and six are developmental or reproductive toxins (livingmaxwell.com/health-risks-conventional-potatoes). Many of these chemicals are systemic, meaning they cannot be washed off. Parents, please protect your children! Buy organic and don’t let them eat processed food!
BAD FOR BABIES
Covid vaccine breast milk research
Dr. James Thorp, a maternal-fetal medicine expert, has analyzed data in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) to compare outcomes of Covid-19 vaccines with influenza vaccines. “Covid-19 vaccines compared to the influenza vaccines are associated with increases in menstrual disorders, miscarriage, fetal chromosomal abnormalities, fetal cystic hygroma, fetal malformations, fetal cardiac arrest, fetal cardiac arrhythmias, fetal cardiac disorders, fetal vascular mal-perfusion abnormalities, abnormal fetal surveillance testing, abnormal fetal growth patterns, placental thrombosis and fetal death,” Thorp reported to the Epoch Times (July 1,. 2022). Fetal malformations were fifty-fold greater for the Covid-19 vaccine and abnormal uterine bleeding was one thousand-fold greater. That’s a lot of heartbreak and suffering for a vaccine that doesn’t work and doesn’t “stop the spread.” While U.S. health authorities continue to urge pregnant and breastfeeding women to get the Covid jab, British officials insist that pregnant or breastfeeding women should not get vaccinated for coronavirus because “sufficient reassurance of safe use of the vaccine” for this demographic “cannot be provided at this time.”
ANTENNAS AND COWS
Frédéric Salgues, a French dairy farmer in the department of Haute-Loire, recently won a court injunction to turn off a 4G antenna installed about two hundred meters from his farm. According to Salgues, about forty of his two hundred cows died mysteriously after the antenna was switched on; moreover, milk production dropped 15-20 percent. But the Salgues victory was short-lived. After a three-month stay, the telecom companies have turned the antenna on again. All this drama has occurred against a background of intense debate about mobile phone antennas in France, especially with the rollout of 5G replacing 4G—for example, two Catholic monks were arrested for setting fire to a 5G antenna near Lyon. According to the French health and safety agency (ANSES), the 5G antennas “do not present any notable risks to health because they use frequencies very close to the previous generations of connectivity” (uncensored.com, May 25, 2022).
HIGH VOLTAGE AND COWS
In a similar case, a French court has awarded almost half a million euros to a dairy farmer in the Manche, France, after the local power company installed a high-tension power line near the farm, after which his cows suffered a loss in milk production. The farmer was compensated for a reduction in value of his farm (Le Figaro, June 3, 2022). The recognition that proximity to high-voltage power lines can affect milk production in cows raises the question of what powerful magnetic fields do to milk production in human mothers.
VICTORY FOR EHS CHILD
Areas without 5G
Meanwhile, parents of an electromagnetic hypersensitive (EHS) child in the U.K. have won a five-year legal battle against two local authorities to have their child accommodated in school for EHS. The victory opens the door for other children. According to the girl’s parents, “We are aware that currently other children with EHS in the UK are unable to access school and some of them are profoundly isolated given that even homeschooling groups can be inaccessible to them due to prolific use of Wi-Fi and mobile phones in the community.” Their daughter suffered headaches, insomnia and other symptoms when exposed to Wi-Fi or other kinds of EMF (phiremedical.org, August 2022). When enough children win the right to an EMF-free environment in school, authorities will have no choice but to hard-wire computers and forbid cell phones in the classroom.
Fake meat burger brands
The publicity campaign for artificial meat patties was extensive and intense; it included articles in the major newspapers, Internet advertisements and talk show hype. Beyond Meat burgers appeared on the McDonald’s menu, in restaurants and in the meat cases at local supermarkets. But McDonald’s soon discovered that Americans still prefer to eat all-beef patties, not laboratory-concocted substitutes. McDonald’s has discontinued the McPlant burger; KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Panda Express, Dunkin’, Hardee’s and A&W are also throwing out the fake meat. Beyond Meat’s stock price peaked in July 2019 at over two hundred thirty-four dollars per share, and now trades at around thirty-two, a 74 percent fall in the last year. One independent analysis predicted that Beyond Meat would soon become a “zombie stock” hitting zero dollars per share. “You’re not going to change cultural tastes overnight,” said John Baumgartner, an analyst for the Japanese bank Mizuho, who still believes that people might accept lab meat if goaded with more propaganda. But in spite of all the propaganda that launched the product, Beyond Meat has failed to generate any positive cash flow since it introduced the Beyond burger in 2019. Realists are accepting the obvious: fake meat is McDone (naturalnews.com, August 11, 2022)!
TREMORS AND CONVULSIONS
Effects of vitamin B12 deficiency
A 2022 Norwegian study published in Pediatric Neurology (131 (2022) 4-12) has found that of eighty-five cases of infants aged three to seven months diagnosed with vitamin B12 deficiency, 80 percent presented with apneas, motor seizures, absences, tremor or irritability within the first two months of life. Although none of the mothers was a vegetarian, 25 percent reported a previous history of vitamin B12 deficiency and 7 percent had celiac disease. The researchers proposed doses of nitrous oxide given during labor as a possible risk factor for infant vitamin B12 deficiency. Possibly related is a Florida University study that has linked exposure to glyphosate (the main ingredient in the weed killer Roundup) to convulsions in animals. Published in Scientific Reports (July 13, 2022), the results showed that glyphosate and Roundup increased seizure-like behavior in soil-dwelling roundworms. From worms to human babies may be a stretch but it should give us pause to consider all the neurotoxins to which our infants are exposed—both in the womb and after birth. Poisons like glyphosate not only have direct effects but also cause the body to use up vitamin B12, a combination that can result in neurologic abnormalities.
ADVERSE EFFECTS COVID-19 VACCINATIONS
Reports of adverse effects from the Covid-19 vaccinations continue to mount up. Informed Choice Australia has published a list of over one thousand studies on health problems following the shots. Cardiac disease (myocarditis and pericarditis) tops the list with three hundred thirty-six mentions in peer-reviewed journals, followed by vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia, and arterial and venous thromboembolism. Other common reactions include anaphylaxis, neurological injury, Guillain-Barré syndrome, lymphadenopathy and skin reactions (informedchoiceaustralia.com, January 20, 2022). Other startling statistics include data from the British government showing that one out of every two hundred forty-six Covid-vaccinated people dies within sixty days (naturalnews.com, August 12, 2022); unpublished observations indicating that you are twenty-five times more likely to be injured and twenty times more likely to die if you get the Covid shot (firstname.lastname@example.org. August 10, 2022); and U.S. government data indicating a 143,233 percent increase in cancer cases due to Covid vaccination (truthll.com, August 16, 2022).
NOT FOR US!
What is the r number in Spain today
Spain has one of the highest Covid vaccination rates in Europe. As of August 24, 2022, almost 86 percent of the population was “fully vaccinated” with the Covid jab. But not everyone. While tracking Islamic extremists, a Spanish undercover agent infiltrated Telegram channels and uncovered a scheme supplying fake vaccination certificates for up to two thousand euros. Eventually, authorities found over two thousand names, including actors, artists, athletes, entertainers and millionaires. One of the most prominent names on the list was that of José Maria Fernández Sousa- Faro, president of the pharmaceutical giant PharmaMar, who paid a “VIP fee” to obtain a certificate showing that he had taken a third dose, enabling him to evade governmental strictures on travel (europeanconservative.com, June 5, 2022). All of which leads to the question: how many world leaders who claim to have received the Covid vaccines are actually unvaccinated?
LOW CHOLESTEROL AND CANCER
Statin pushers claim that treatment with cholesterol-lowering drugs helps prevent cancer, but in a recent commentary by Uffe Ravnskov and Kilmer McCully, published in Frontiers in Oncology (May 2022), the authors argue that statin treatment may cause cancer. They cite a paper published in Circulation Journal ((2002) 66(12):1087–95), which followed almost fifty thousand patients taking low-dose simvastatin. Six years later, the number of cancer deaths was more than three times higher among those whose total cholesterol was less than 160 mg/dl compared with those whose cholesterol was normal or high. Another study measured LDL-cholesterol levels of over two hundred patients requiring prostate biopsy. Those diagnosed with prostate cancer had LDL-cholesterol levels that were significantly lower than that of those without cancer. The situation is complicated by contradictory studies but why take a chance, especially since statin treatment causes a lot of other unpleasant side effects and doesn’t even lower your risk of heart disease!🖨️ Print post
