'Tis Highly Processed Food That Is Killing Us

HEALTHBIT: It's important to realize that processed foods and sugar almost exclusively feed pathogens in your digestive system, allowing them to proliferate.

Iron Filings In Cereals

Following on from the above story, when you read "fortified with iron" on the cereal box, does it mean they put iron filings in it? Yes it does!

Professional Perspectives on Fluoride

Fluoride is a toxic substance. The only drug added to water to alter the functioning of the body, regardless of individual water consumption.

Fluoride is Classified as a Neurotoxin

While the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) would have us all believe that fluoride is perfectly innocuous and safe, scientists from the EPA's National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory have classified fluoride as a "chemical having substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity".2 Consistent with the EPA's conclusion, a continually growing body of human and animal research strongly suggests that fluoride can damage the developing brain.

Consider for example:

24 studies have now reported an association between fluoride exposure and reduced IQ in children
Three studies have reported an association between fluoride exposure and impaired neurobehavioral development
Three studies have reported damage to the brain of aborted fetuses in high fluoride areas, and
Over 100 laboratory studies have reported damage to the brain and/or cognitive function among fluoride-exposed animals.

Alzheimer's Is Such A Bitch!

Three mischievous old Grannies were sitting on a bench outside a nursing home when an old Grandpa walked by.

One of the old Grandmas yelled out, "We bet we can tell exactly how old you are."

The old man said, "There is no way you can guess it, you old fools."

One of the old Grandmas said, "Sure we can! - Just drop your pants and under shorts and we can tell your exact age."

More anxious to prove they couldn't do it than embarrassed, he dropped his drawers.

The Grandmas asked him to first turn around a couple of times and to jump up and down several times.

Then they all piped up and said, "You're 87 years old!"

Standing with his pants down around his ankles the old gent asked, "How in the world did you guess?"

Slapping their knees and grinning from ear to ear, the three old ladies happily yelled in unison... "We were at your birthday party yesterday!"

Act Now To Help Save the Amazon Jungle

The Amazon is in serious danger: Brazil is on the verge of gutting its forest protection laws -- unless we act now, vast tracts of our planet’s lungs could be opened up to clear-cutting devastation.

This threat to the Amazon has sparked widespread anger and protests across the country and tensions are rising. In an effort to stifle criticism, armed thugs, allegedly hired by loggers, have murdered environmental advocates. But the movement is fighting back -- in four days, brave indigenous people are leading massive marches across Brazil to demand action and inside sources say President Dilma is considering vetoing the changes.

79% of Brazilians support a veto of the forest law changes and this internal pressure is leading some in Dilma's administration to back a veto. But we need a global cry of solidarity with the Brazilian people to really force Dilma's hand. Our global petition will be boldly displayed on banners at the front of the massive marches for Amazon protection. Let's reach one million to SAVE THE AMAZON! Sign the urgent petition below and send this on to everyone:

The Time Is Now!

If there were ever a time to dare,
to make a difference,
to embark on something worth doing,
it is now.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily-
but for something that tugs at your heart,
something that's your aspiration,
something that's your dream.

You owe it to yourself
to make your days here count.
Have fun.
Dig deep.
Dream big.

A Petition For You

Reports indicate that networking giant Cisco Systems, Inc., an American company based in Silicon Valley, has been knowingly selling Internet surveillance and censorship tools to the Chinese government for years. The Chinese government's "Great Firewall" prevents Internet users in China from accessing much of the Internet, including online references to Tiananmen Square and the Jasmine Revolution, as well as social media sites like Facebook. In addition to blocking access to information, these tools have enabled the Chinese government to spy on its citizens and may include special customization to target individuals who are working to protect human rights and build democracy in China.

Du Daobin, a dissident writer in China, was reportedly detained and interrogated by the Chinese government specifically about a lawsuit he and other Chinese dissidents brought against Cisco. In June 2011, the activists sued Cisco and a number of Cisco executives in the United States District Court in Maryland for their "knowing and willful aiding and abetting of the Chinese government's harassment, arrest, and torture of Chinese political activists."

We believe Mr. Du has since been released, but he still faces the possibility of more imprisonment and torture for challenging an American company's policies and speaking out against censorship. Help us defend this political activist, and call on American companies to defend human rights rather than selling the tools of repression! Sign our petition to tell Cisco to intervene on behalf of Mr. Du and to commit to standing up for human rights.

Axe the Tax with FACTS

Malcolm Roberts, our voluntary Project Manager frequently contacts politicians and journalists to hold them accountable for the barrage of misinformation being propagated in the media and parliament.

Here is a copy of Malcolm’s latest email. If you feel so inclined, please copy and demand answers to these questions from your Federal MP as well.

Subject: Professor's work confirms Gillard-Brown-Combet-Milne-Plibersek-Wong lies

To all federal MP's, reputable journalists, friends:

Professor Murry Salby's lecture recorded by the Sydney Institute confirms again that global CO2 levels are a result of temperature, not a cause. Claims by Gillard-Brown-Combet-Milne-Plibersek-Wong are lies.

The Galileo Movement last month provided two short pages of Basic Facts on carbon dioxide (CO2): pages 1 & 2

Salby's work reinforces this summary. The material though has been known by scientists for decades.

Examining the Gillard-Brown message below reveals why Australians comprehensively reject Julia Gillard. She has fabricated a situation that is irretrievable.

Measurements of global CO2 levels used by the UN reveal that CO2 levels are a result of temperature, not a cause. CO2 does not drive temperature. Temperature determines CO2 levels. Yet the government and Greens tells us the opposite. Saying CO2 drives temperature is the biggest … lie.

Each molecule of carbon dioxide combines an atom of carbon with two atoms of oxygen. Calling Nature’s invisible gas 'carbon pollution'—a black solid—is a … lie.

CO2 is less than 0.04% of Earth’s air. Less than 4 x 1/100th’s of one percent. Scientifically, it’s called a trace gas because there’s bugger-all of it. Calling it pollution is a … lie.

Of Earth’s annual production of carbon dioxide human activity (industry, transport, farming) produces just 3%, Nature 32 times more, 97%. Calling it pollution is a … lie.

Of that 3% from humans, Aussie activity produces just 1.0-1.3%. Saying Aussies affect global climate is a … lie.

The variation alone in Nature’s production of CO2 is estimated to be four times the entire human production. We are not affecting the balance. We cannot. Calling it pollution is a … lie.

When Nature’s 97% is known to be essential for all life on Earth, how can 3% be catastrophic? It cannot. It’s insane, crooked. Calling it pollution is a ... lie.

CO2 stays in the air only 5-7 years, sometimes just months. Nature rapidly cycles it back into plants, animals and oceans. Calling it pollution is a … lie.

71% of Earth’s surface is ocean. Ours is a blue planet. It’s not the Greens. It’s ours.

Oceans contain, in dissolved form, 50 times the CO2 in Earth’s entire atmosphere. CO2 is released from and absorbed into the oceans according to temperature.

Annually, Nature overwhelmingly produces most of Earth’s CO2 and Nature alone determines the amount in air.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is Nature’s colourless, odourless, tasteless gas. Essential for all life on Earth—including us. Trees need CO2 to live. Crops need CO2 to live. We need trees and crops. You’re exhaling CO2 now. It’s not poisonous. Calling it pollution is a … lie*.

For a short yet comprehensive assessment of CO2 against criteria characterising pollutants, please refer pages 3 & 4 of The Galileo Movement document.

*Lie: knowingly or recklessly stating something that is not true creating a false or inaccurate impression.
