---------------------------- (NaturalNews) Israeli researchers have discovered an amazing plant native to their region that apparently helps treat type-2 diabetes naturally without the need for drugs or injections. But rather than promote the actual plant as a therapeutic option for patients, the team is instead working with drug companies to isolate the plant's "active ingredient" so it can be synthesized and turned into a patented, corporate-owned pharmaceutical drug.

The plant is known as Chiliadenus iphionoides, or sharp varthemia, and it has a stocky, furry-looking stem that produces spiny yellow flowers. In both cellular and animal models, extracts from this aromatic shrub have been shown to exhibit antidiabetic activity, helping to improve sugar absorption into muscle and fat cells, as well as reduce blood sugar levels.

Based on these powerful outcomes, as reported in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, sharp varthemia appears to be a godsend for people who suffer from diabetes mellitus, which the American Diabetes Association says is the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S. today. But you won't find the plant at your local CVS or Walgreens pharmacy, and you likely never will.

Whole-plant sharp varthemia can't be patented, so drug companies will steal one component in order to capitalize on it
It's not that sharp varthemia isn't effective at treating diabetes; it is, otherwise the researchers who discovered it wouldn't have stated the following in their study:

"Chiliadenus iphionoides extract increased insulin secretion in s cells as well as glucose uptake in adipocytes and skeletal myotubes. The extract also displayed hypoglycemic activity in the diabetic sand rat. ... Chiliadenus iphionoides exhibits considerable anti-diabetic activity, although the mechanism of action remains to be determined."

This is quite clearly a positive clinical outcome, but it doesn't do much to fatten the wallets of drug industry CEOs and executives who only profit when medicinal components are isolated and synthesized. Since natural plants can't be patented (at least not yet), there's no money to be made from selling sharp varthemia in whole-plant form.

Instead, scientists will have to figure out a way to steal the plant's "active ingredient," which in and of itself is a misnomer, since plants contain a host of bioactive components that work synergistically to promote healing. The complexity of this synergy is far beyond what any human scientist could ever comprehend, of course, hence the mysteries of the natural healing arts. But none of this matters when there's profits to be made.

Bio-piracy is the essence of the pharmaceutical industry; natural plants and herbs work better, but they don't generate billions in profits!
In the case of sharp varthemia, scientists working on behalf of drug industry moguls will identify what they believe to be the plant's "active ingredient," which they will then use to develop a drug that can be patented and sold for billions of dollars. And if anyone tries to sell the plant in whole form as medicine, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will surely swoop in and declare sharp varthemia to be an "unapproved drug."

Such a scenario is bio-piracy at its finest, robbing nature of her lifeblood in order to turn pieces of it into a for-profit, "sick care" health management pill or vaccine, and it's the foundation upon which the pharmaceutical industry is built.

It's exactly what drug companies did with the Madagascar periwinkle, a traditional medicine native to Africa that works as a natural appetite suppressant. It's also been shown effective in the treatment of leukemia which, once drug companies found out about this, resulted in components of the plant being bio-pirated and sold for huge profit.

"We need to do more in developing countries regarding informing people about biopiracy," said Yoke Ling Chee of the Third World Network, as quoted by DW.de. "But we also need to create more awareness among consumers so when they use products they know that biopiracy might be involved."

7 Takeaways about Grains From Mark Hyman's Book Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?

7 Takeaways about Grains from My Book Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?

For many years, we have been told by experts to eat lots of grains. In the infamous 1992 Food Pyramid, we were told to eat 6 to 11 servings of bread rice, cereal, and pasta every day! And we listened… and turned America into the “Fat Nation” with 70% of us now overweight.
Even the Bible says that bread is the “staff of life.” But, it’s important to note, a completely different type of wheat was used in those times. On top of the traditional assumption that grains are good, brilliant marketers have been able to twist our view of grain products using phrases like “whole wheat goodness,” leading us to believe it must be a healthy choice.
As much as anything else, grains made America. The evidence is in the sheer acreage of farmland we devote to wheat, corn, barley, and sorghum and the excessive amount of grain we consume and export to the rest of the world. Grain-based foods are by far the number one source of calories in the American diet.
The grains that go into those foods— mainly wheat, corn, rice, and sorghum—are among the crops that receive billions in federal farm subsidies annually.  So, even our tax dollars are devoted to keeping grain-based foods like bread, pasta, rice, cereals, cookies, cake, pizza, oatmeal, and crackers on top.
Most of these federally subsidized crops are also fed to livestock, which means that Americans are getting grains indirectly, too, from all the grain-fed beef, chicken, and dairy we consume.
The average American consumes 133 pounds of flour a year in their food (down from 146.8 pounds in  1995); that’s more than a third of a pound per person per day, and some of us consume much more. And that doesn’t include all the other grains and potatoes.
As I discuss in Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?, whole grains can be a great source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber.While they taste pretty good, the toxic amounts we eat contribute to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and dementia. And most of the grains we eat, even whole wheat, are turned into flour products which have a higher glycemic index than table sugar.
In in my new book, you’ll learn all the pros and cons about grains to determine whether you can occasionally indulge in them, as well as which are the best grains and which are the worst. Here are 7 takeaways from that chapter of Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?
  • You don’t have to eat grains to be healthy. In fact, you might be healthier if you didn’t. For nearly all of our history, humans consumed no grains, and our bodies are designed to work very well without them. Yes, there are plenty of vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and fiber contained in whole grains, but you can easily get all those things from other sources including vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, and other foods that don’t have the baggage that comes with grains. There are essential amino acids from protein and essential fatty acids from fats, but no such thing as essential carbohydrates. Our bodies are perfectly designed to thrive without them. A small amount of a few specific whole grains is okay if you are not diabetic or obese.
  • “Whole grain” is a marketing term. When we eat food with labels touting “whole-grain flour,” we automatically assume that we’re eating whole grains. We’re not. In Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?, I’ll tell you how to read a label so you can determine whether what you’re buying is marketing hype or actually healthy. Whole grain Cookie Crisp cereal with 22 grams of sugar is not a health food. Any whole grain flour is just like sugar.
  •  Starch and sugar are essentially the same thing. Flour acts more like sugar in your body than a whole unprocessed grain. In fact, eating 2 slices of whole wheat bread raises your blood sugar more than eating 2 tablespoons of table sugar does! Whenever you eat something containing wheat flour, you might as well be mainlining sugar.
  • You’re not eating the same grains your grandparents ate. New hybrids have been developed that are much starchier than their predecessors and have a greater impact on our blood sugar than the traditional kinds of starch. (It actually promotes insulin resistance or prediabetes.) The new varieties also have more gluten, which is not doing us any favors. And while most wheat isn’t genetically modified, it is dosed with a chemical herbicide called glyphosate just before harvest, which increases its yield.
  • Be careful, even with “healthy” grain products. I’ve seen bread from a major commercial bakery boasting not one, but several “ancient healthful grains,” like amaranth. But when you read the ingredients (in small print on the back), you see that that these grains are way down at the end of the list, meaning they are the smallest part of the mix. Chances are, you’re not going to get a whole lot of unrefined grain nutrition in that loaf.
  • Oatmeal isn’t good for you. You probably know most breakfast cereals—even those with health claims on the front—aren’t healthy. But oatmeal? How could a food so boring also be unhealthy? The major problem with oatmeal is the same problem with every other grain: It spikes your blood sugar and makes you hungrier.
  • Not all grains are bad. In Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?, I take aim at cereal, oatmeal, corn, wheat (because yes, gluten is a real issue for millions of people, which I explain in detail in the book) and other forms of grains. But there are some healthy grains. Whole grains like quinoa and amaranth that contain no gluten, have not been turned into highly refined, industrialized products, and will never be found in Twinkies, cookies, or pizza crust, are nutritious and delicious. They also won’t send your blood sugar soaring.

In general, we need to recognize grains for what they are—a recreational treat, not a staple. In Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?, I go in-depth about the history of grains and discuss how for most of our existence they weren’t part of our diets. I’ll reveal the best and worst grain sources, why going gluten-free isn’t always a great idea, and answer whether you really need to give up bread entirely. Armed with this information, you’ll have everything you need to make an informed decision about this confusing, contentious food.
In my book out February 27, 2018, Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?, I uncover the truth about the food we actually eat—what is healthy and not in each group of foods we eat—meat, poultry and eggs, dairy, beans, grains, veggies, fruit, nuts and seeds, beverages, and more, and guide to you to a science-based, sensible way of eating for life that keeps you, our planet and our society healthy. I also address the environmental and social impact of the food we eat.
Plus, I take the guesswork out of how to eat food that has the best information for your body, the best quality to make you feel good now and prevent and even reverse illness.
If you have ever woken up wondering what the heck you should eat, this book is for you. Check out the trailer and place an order at Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, or get it at your local bookstore. You’ll also get a free video of the 4 biggest food lies out there!

Story at-a-glance

  • February is National Pet Dental Health Month, the focus of which is to raise awareness and remind pet parents of the importance of maintaining their animal companion’s oral health
  • By age 3, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats have some degree of gum disease
  • Every pet parent should stay alert for the 10 signs of dental disease, and the five signs of dental pain in dogs and cats
  • Plaque allowed to build up on your pet’s teeth can ultimately damage not only his oral health, but his heart health as well
  • Areas of focus to keep your pet’s mouth healthy include diet, raw bones, daily brushing, and regular at-home and veterinary oral exams
By Dr. Karen Shaw Becker
February is National Pet Dental Health Month, which means it’s time for a reminder to pet parents about the importance of staying on top of your dog’s or cat’s oral health. Here’s a quick quiz to test your knowledge of the condition of your pet’s teeth and gums:
Question No. 1: Most dental disease in dogs and cats occurs below the gum line, where you can't see it. True or False?
If you answered true, you’re correct. Bacteria that can't be seen can damage the tissues connecting the teeth and jaw. That’s why it’s important to have your veterinarian examine your pet’s mouth at each wellness checkup.
Question No. 2: Of the four choices below, which is the most important in maintaining your pet's dental health in between professional cleanings?
  1. Feed him crunchy kibble
  2. Brush his teeth
  3. Use pet-safe mouthwash to control stinky breath
  4. Give him dental chews
If you chose number 2, you’re correct. Regularly brushing your pet's teeth is the single most effective thing you can do to keep your pet’s teeth and gums in good condition. Daily brushing is ideal, but if that’s not workable, set a goal of four to five times a week.
Question No. 3: What percentage of dogs and cats have periodontal disease by the age of 3?
  1. Less than 10 percent
  2. 20 to 30 percent
  3. 50 to 60 percent
  4. 70 to 80 percent
  5. 90 to 100 percent
Believe it or not, the correct answer is number 4 — 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats have some form of periodontal diseaseby the age of 3.

Signs of Possible Dental Disease in Your Pet

Redness of the gums
Tenderness around the mouth and/or teeth
Bad breath
Drooling or dropping food
Loose teeth
Bleeding from the mouth
Discolored teeth
Loss of appetite/poor appetite
Broken teeth
Weight loss
Obviously, if you notice any of these problems with your pet, it’s time to make an appointment with your veterinarian to prevent a dental problem from negatively impacting your dog’s or cat’s health and quality of life.

Top 5 Signs of Dental Pain in Pets

Since our animal companions can’t talk to us and are stoic even in the face of significant discomfort, it’s important to learn to look for other clues. There are five primary signs of dental pain in pets:1
1.No signs at all
Dogs, cats and other companion animals rarely show signs of dental pain. This is a survival mechanism, an instinctual behavior that our domesticated animals have in common with their wild ancestors.
2.Bad breath
The odor is a byproduct of the bacterial metabolic process. In pets with periodontal disease, there are more bacteria in the mouth, and so the odor increases. “Doggy breath” or “tuna breath” is not normal and needs to be evaluated.
3.Altered behavior
Chewing on one side of the mouth, dropping food, running away from the food dish, crying when yawning, hiding, not grooming themselves and acting “grumpy” are all signs of dental pain. You know your pet better than anyone, so look for abnormal behaviors.
Bleeding from the mouth is usually due to periodontal disease, but it could also be evidence of fractured teeth, lacerations or ulcers on the tongue or gum tissue or the presence of an oral mass. Look for thick, ropey saliva, spots of blood found on toys or beds or drops of blood in the water or food dish. If the periodontal disease is severe enough, you may notice bleeding from the nose or bloody discharge when your pet sneezes.
5.Return to normal
Once your veterinarian addresses your pet’s oral issues, your pooch may show he’s feeling better by acting like a puppy again or your kitty might seek extra attention.
I would add that if you can see red, inflamed gums in your pet’s mouth, or teeth with an obvious buildup of brown or greenish plaque and tartar, you can assume that if your dog or cat isn’t already in pain, he will be soon without intervention.

Plaque on Your Pet’s Teeth Can Cause Irreversible Gum Disease and Other Serious Health Problems

When plaque is allowed to build up on your dog’s or cat’s teeth, within a few days it hardens into tartar. Tartar adheres to the teeth and irritates the gums. Irritated gums result in an inflammatory condition called gingivitis. Pets with gingivitis have red rather than pink gums, and they often also have stinky breath.
If the tartar isn’t removed from your pet’s teeth, it builds up under the gums, eventually causing them to pull away from the teeth. This creates small pockets in the gum tissue that trap additional bacteria in the mouth. At this stage, your pet has developed an irreversible condition called periodontal disease, which not only causes considerable pain, but can also result in abscesses, infections, loose teeth and bone loss.
How quickly this process takes place in your pet’s mouth depends on a number of factors, including her age, overall health, diet, breed, genetics, and the frequency and quality of dental care she receives. Your pet’s oral health affects more than just her mouth. Studies have proved a conclusive link between gum disease and heart disease in humans and dogs (studies on cats are sparse, but it’s reasonable to assume a similar link exists for felines).
Researchers also suspect certain strains of oral bacteria may lead to heart problems. Some types of bacteria found in the mouths of dogs produce sticky proteins that can adhere to artery walls, causing them to thicken. Mouth bacteria are also known to promote the formation of blood clots that can damage the heart.

5 Tips to Help Keep Your Pet’s Teeth and Gums in Great Shape

1.Diet. Your pet’s diet plays a significant role in the amount of tartar she collects on her teeth. Raw diets — even prepared, ground raw diets — help control tartar. Raw ground bone is a gentle dental abrasive that acts like fine sandpaper when chewed, which helps remove debris stuck on teeth.
The meat contains natural enzymes, and in addition, raw food doesn’t stick to teeth, unlike starchy kibble. It's a complete myth that kibble helps keep your pet's teeth clean. Kibble is no better for your pet’s teeth than crunchy human food is for your teeth. That being said, even raw fed pets acquire plaque and tartar, so don’t assume food alone will save your pet from dental disease.
Additionally, there are a few supplements that research shows improves gum health and the oral microbiome, including ubiquinol and probiotics. Adding these supplements to your pet’s protocol can improve his oral defenses and reduce the rate at which degeneration occurs.
2.Raw bones. For dogs and cats, chewing plays an important role in removing plaque and tartar from teeth. Even though there are plenty of toys and food products on the market that can be of some help, raw bones are really the best option, and few dogs, at least, will turn them down.
It's important the bones are raw, because cooked bones can splinter and damage your pet's gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The size depends on the size of your pet and whether she’s such an eager chewer that she risks injuring herself or even breaking teeth. Your dog should always be supervised when she’s working on a bone to minimize the risk of choking or tooth damage, and raw bones should be refrigerated between chewing sessions.
3.Daily brushing. Brush your pet’s teeth, preferably every day. A little time spent each day brushing your dog’s or cat’s teeth can reap tremendous rewards in terms of his oral health and overall well-being.
4.Regular at-home mouth inspections. Your pet should allow you to open his mouth, look inside and feel around for loose teeth or unusual lumps or bumps on the tongue, under the tongue, along the gum line and across the roof. After you do this a few times, you’ll become aware of any changes that occur from one inspection to the next. You should also make note of any difference in the smell of your pet’s breath that isn’t diet-related.
5.Veterinary checkups. Arrange for regular oral exams performed by your veterinarian. He or she will alert you to any existing or potential problems in your pet’s mouth, and recommend professional teeth cleaning, if necessary.
If you’re conscientious about your pet’s dental home care and she doesn’t have any special situations that predispose her to tartar build-up or other dental issues, she may never need a professional cleaning by a veterinarian. However, pets with extreme tartar build-up, badly inflamed gums or oral infections need extra help.

7 Ways Ozone Therapy Can STOP Disease In Its Tracks [Q&A]

Call to Action to Stop Mandatory HPV of Children in Florida by opposing SB 1558 HB 1343

Call to action in Florida: Stop mandatory HPV vaccination of children by opposing SB 1558, HB 1343


(Natural News) Natural News is issuing a call to action in Florida, where two bills are being fast-tracked to force all schoolchildren to take mandatory HPV vaccinations.
Your help is needed to stop the vaccine industry from using state power to claim ownership over children’s bodies across Florida.
The mandatory Florida HPV vaccine bills are SB 1558 and HB 1343. Please take the time to call your representative in Florida and ask them to oppose these two bills. Parents have the right to say NO to vaccines for their children.
If you are not from Florida, you can take action by contacting the sponsors of the bills.
Contact Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez, sponsor of SB 1558 and ask him to withdraw the bill.  Also contact Representative Amy Mercado, sponsor of HB 1343 and ask her to withdraw her bill.
Kindly tell them you don’t think they should be forcing your child to get this vaccine and why you feel that way.
If you are from Florida, call and email your Florida State Senator and Representative and ask them to OPPOSE SB 1558 and HB 1343. Tell them DO NOT become a co-sponsor. Lookup your Florida state representative here for Senate and here for House of Representatives.
HPV Vaccine is an unnecessary, dangerous scam
All medical evidence suggests that HPV vaccines are not necessary. The Human papillomavirus that causes cervical cancer can only be transmitted sexually; therefore, a vaccine intervention is unnecessary for schoolchildren.
Notwithstanding, HPV vaccines contain one of the most dangerous aluminum salts as an adjuvant. These aluminum cations are absorbed into immune-responsive cells after injection. This aluminum travels through the immune system, concentrating in brain tissue, and breaking free to inflict unpredictable damage to surrounding cells. The aluminum toxicity of HPV vaccines is an issue that lawmakers should address; no state should be mandating dangerous aluminum-based vaccines.
To date, 57,520 vaccine reactions reports have been made to the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System regarding Gardasil HPV vaccinations. These reports include 271 deaths by Gardasil. There are an additional 3,579 adverse reaction reports submitted following Cervarix HPV vaccinations, including 17 deaths. This is a small portion of the damages caused by this vaccine, for not all adverse reactions are recorded and reported to VAERS.
This is not a matter to take lightly, for HPV vaccines are proven to be dangerous vectors of neurological damage. Some of the most common adverse events include: Muscle pain and weakness, disabling fatigue, paralysis, brain inflammation, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, optic neuritis, blood clots, spontaneous abortions seizures, convulsions, and cardiac events.
A lead developer of the HPV vaccine has even admitted that the science behind it and the pressure to mandate it is a fraud. Cervical cancer rates are significantly higher for certain elective behaviors.
In 98 percent of cases of HPV transmission, the problem clears up on its own. There are forty different HPV viruses studied, but only four of them have the ability to cause cervical cancer. Behaviors and other factors of immune system health play a role in getting cervical cancer, too. There is no medical necessity to inject Gardasil, Cervarix, or any other hoax HPV vaccine.
The HPV vaccine is already available for those who want to take the risk and get it. It should not be forced by law on every child. The state does not own the children. Legislators should respect the families who have lost children and suffered through vaccine reactions. Legislators should be holding vaccine industry accountable instead of shoving their scam products on the general population. Every family has the right to opt out of unnecessary, experimental, and dangerous medical intervention. (For more, visit Vaccines.News.)

Can we ever believe what our government tells us about airport security devices? 

Apparently not. First they told us those X-ray scanners (that showed way too many naked body parts) were perfectly safe.

Even the manufacturer of the device, Rapidscan, openly admitted the scanners had not been adequately tested. The truth was later revealed that the safety tests turned out to be totally rigged, as reported by Natural News.

With fabricated results, the technology was quickly rushed into every airport worldwide.  No one listened to what the scientists in the field of radiation were trying to tell them – it’s not safe.

It wasn’t until the backscatter radiation levels the scanners were putting off began showing an increased incidence of cancer in TSA agents (along with the lawsuits that quickly followed), that the devices were finally yanked. The TSA quickly scrambled for another solution.

Now they also want us to believe that the replacement technology, millimeter wave “digital strip search” scanners, are also “perfectly safe”.

Don’t believe it for a second. The TSA failed to adequately test these devices for health and safety factors as well. Unfortunately, in today’s world, security trumps human safety.

These millimeter wave technologies are designed to bombard innocent travelers with high frequency energy particles known as terahertz photons.

A study conducted by Boian S. Alexandrov et.al. at the Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, revealed that these terahertz waves could “…unzip double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles that could significantly interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication.”

In other words, this study is the smoking gun that raises serious concerns about the impact of terahertz radiation upon fertility, fetal development, and cancer.

Now think about the thousands of people who are subjected to these levels of untested energy particles every day in the name of “National Security”.

The military’s Active Denial weapon uses millimeter wave technology to create an intense burning sensation on the skin’s surface using a 95 GHz (3.2mm wavelength) beam.

But the TSA tells us not to worry about their millimeter waves because:
“Millimeter wave technology bounces harmless electromagnetic waves off the body to create the same generic image for all passengers.” 
This is completely inaccurate because the nature of millimeter waves is that our bodies and water are excellent absorbers of these waves. Millimeter waves do penetrate and absorb into our skin.

At the microwave technology center in Malaysia, health subjects were exposed to microwave radiation between 20 — 38 GHz, the range in which the TSA scanners operate.

They found that millimeter waves penetrated the subject’s skin at depths of between 1.05 mm at 20 GHz to 0.78 mm at 38 GHz. This is enough to penetrate below the epidermal layer of the skin.

Millimeter waves have been reported to produce a variety of bioeffects, many of which are quite unexpected from radiation penetrated less than 1 mm into biological tissues.

Of particular concern is the citing of studies that show there is an irreversible water memory effect by millimeter waves operating in the 36GHz frequency, and that the millimeter wave effects on blood plasma vary greatly from one person to the next.

Does this information make you extremely uncomfortable? Well, it should. And it should also make every one of us mad as hell.

Since the day they first rolled out these human violation technologies in 2007, I have always chosen to “opt out”. I would rather endure the intrusive body pat down any day than subject myself to covert DNA alteration.

So what if it takes an additional 5-15 minutes of your time getting to your gate? It’s time to exercise your own personal body health consciousness, since the US government has clearly demonstrated they don’t possess any qualms about not protecting you.

Alternation of DNA can be subtle and deadly down the line. Who would ever make the connection that a TSA scanning machine might have contributed to any negative health effects you eventually experience.

If you are a frequent air traveler, like myself, you should be concerned about your levels of exposure. If you’re a TSA agent, you should find another job.

This past weekend as I was trying to make a flight back to Los Angeles from the Columbia, South Carolina Airport, I did my usual “opt out” thing. The TSA agents from this little backwater airport tried to feed me the propaganda line about “minimal risk.”

I told them I’d read the studies and they needed to be better informed. They looked at me blankly trying to tell me it was just like using a cell phone. Not true.

The millimeter wave scanners the TSA operates put out more than 20 billion times more oscillations per second in smaller terahertz waves, so the cellular effects will be different from cell phones.

I’m sure no one ever told TSA agents this, but they feed the same lies back to the people that they’ve been told, so I tried to be more forgiving.

I’m sure no one had requested an opt out for some time in this South Carolina airport, which is why I got the pat down of all pat downs.

The female agent made sure to give me karate chops straight up to my private parts twice in the back and then another two times in the front. Totally unnecessary. She kneaded my waist in a strange manner, grabbing hold of any loose skin she could find.

I have had hundreds of pat downs over the years, and no one, I mean no one, has ever been as intrusive as this TSA agent.

My first instinct was to tell her how inappropriate she was being, then I remembered how I would most likely be punished for my non-sheep-like behavior and not be allowed to make my flight.

During the procedure she also sniffled and sneezed, spreading her germ warfare all over me through out the entire security grope session.

I think we have all had enough of this undignified treatment in the name of security. It’s already been proven that these scanner devices and intrusive pat downs have not made our world any safer from terrorists.

Airport security testers have snuck through everything from guns to explosives, clearly proving their ineffectiveness. Metal detectors should be sufficient enough.

If everyone opted out of the scanner, the whole program would eventually fall apart. The lines of opt outs would be so long it would bring the air travel industry to a standstill.

It would also send a clear message that unsafe devices are not going to be tolerated. Take the extra time and just do it — opt out. If you love yourself, than you owe it to yourself.

Now I’m already ahead of you on what you’re thinking — that they’ll just suspend all our civil liberties and make it mandatory to go through the scanners whether we want to or not.

Well, I would like to believe that they would be flooded with lawsuits if they did, but there’s an even easier solution. Go to a medical supply store and buy a cheap inexpensive arm sling and put it on before going through TSA.

If you can’t hold both arms up over your head while in their scanner, it renders the results totally unusable. They know this and have to let you opt out for medical reasons. The sheeple are getting smarter. Afterall, life is all about how you handle Plan B.

Not only is quartz incredibly useful, but it’s also pretty easy to find. Quartz is one of the most common minerals on the planet — if not the most common. This means that you can find it in almost any geologic setting. Mines, rock hunting fields, sandstone, and limestone are great places to start, but you can find quartz in just about any patch of dirt if you look hard enough. Stream beds, creeks, the soil surrounding fallen trees, and the rocky sides of streams will often contain quartz.
To be sure, your best bet would be none other than Arkansas. The Natural State, and part of Oklahoma, are home to the Ouachita Mountains. This mountain range has some of the world’s finest quartz and is the location of Mount Ida, a city known for being the quartz capital of the world. So if you just happen to be in the area, you’ll come across quartz at one point or another.
How will you know if that mineral you dug up is quartz? According to ThoughtCo.com, quartz will have the following identifiers:
  • A milky or milky-white color, or clear or frosted appearance
  • A glassy or vitreous luster
  • Able to scratch ordinary glass and all kinds of steel
  • When broken, the rough-surfaced fragment exhibits a swirl pattern
How to use quartz
  • For fire starting: In addition to quartz, you’ll need a piece of steel, a spark catcher (like a char cloth or chunk of charred wood), and tinder (a nest of dried grass will suffice). Hold the steel in your dominant hand and strike it against the quartz. It will take a few strikes, but you will see a spark land on the spark catcher. When you see a faint glow, place the spark catcher in the tinder. Fan air over the tinder and gently blow on it to stoke the flame. (Related: Char cloth makes starting fires quick and easy – here’s how to make it.)
  • For survival knives: For this, you’ll have to find a larger stone (this will be the hammer) and an even bigger stone (this will be the anvil). Place your quartz on top of the anvil stone then break it apart by swinging the hammer stone vertically onto the quartz. Aim for controlled swings; bringing the hammer stone down too hard will pulverize your quartz into powder. After several minutes, you’ll find yourself with several flakes of quartz. These flakes have a variety of applications depending on the edge:
    • Acute and even-edged quartz flakes are good for cutting cord, soft wood, and hardwood.
    • Jagged-edged quartz flakes can serve as a saw. Notably, a saw to help you break sticks in half.
    • Sharp but obtuse-edged quartz flakes are ideal for scraping.
  • For weapons: After doing the above, you may find some quartz flakes that looks just like arrowheads. That’s exactly what you can use them for. Find some strong, sturdy tree branches for your arrow shafts. Trim them down with your knife to make them as streamlined as possible. You can straighten your arrow shafts further by introducing heat to any curved parts and pushing against them. Cut a nock on one end of the arrows and fit the quartz flake into it, securing it in place with bark or string.
  • For drilling: Need a drill for your wood or leather? Then fine-pointed quartz flakes are what you need. You can either utilize it as is or make a primitive hand drill. Hollow out one end of a branch or piece of river cane then harden it over fire. Glue the quartz flake in place with hide glue or pitch glue. This is a type of natural glue made by melting dried pine tree sap and combining it with equal parts ground charcoal.
For survivalists and preppers, quartz is an amazing mineral and a solid addition to your arsenal of survival supplies. You can’t go wrong with a material that you can fashion into all sorts of useful instruments.
