Mercola Save Money on Groceries

•Try lining your refrigerator's crisper drawer with paper towels; they'll absorb excess moisture and keep your vegetables from rotting

•A bay leaf in a container of flour, pasta, or rice will repel bugs

•Bananas spoil less quickly in a bunch -- keep them together until you eat them

•To make cottage cheese or sour cream last longer, turn the container upside down -- this creates a vacuum that inhibits the growth of bacteria

•If you're unsure of an egg's freshness, put it in a cup of water; fresh eggs sink, while bad ones float

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

Becoming a savvy grocery shopper is a skill well worth learning, as you will need to invest some high-quality time shopping for, and preparing, your food if you want to stay healthy.

You may be tempted to "save money" on food using the dollar menu at your local fast-food restaurant, but this will cost you dearly in the long-run as the food is virtually guaranteed to:

•Zap your energy

•Sour your mood

•Ultimately cause weight gain and disease

Grocery shopping takes more time and effort, true. But it's also the only way you'll have control over what types of food you feed your family. Learning to be a savvy food shopper is not only about the price tag (looking for freshness and food quality are also important), but, that being said, the more you can keep your grocery bill down, the better.

Money-Saving Grocery Tips

Rebecca DiLiberto shares some great tips in the Yahoo Shine article above. Among those not listed above:

•Store fresh herbs (washed and sealed in plastic bags) in your freezer. They'll stay fresh for a month and defrost instantly when you want to use them for cooking.

•Make limp celery, carrots and radishes crunchy again by placing them in a bowl of ice water with a slice of raw potato.

•Spread butter on the cut side of hard cheeses to keep them from drying out in the fridge.

•Put rice in your salt shaker to absorb condensation and keep salt from hardening.

•Store your butter in the freezer; it will keep fresh for up to six months.

What you'll notice is that many of these tips involve ways to keep your foods fresher, longer, to avoid food waste.

Americans waste an estimated 1,400 calories of food per person, each and every day, according to a study published in the journal PloS One. These wasted calories represent not only 39 percent of the available U.S. food supply, but also account for approximately 300 million barrels of oil annually, with all of the environmental implications that go along with fossil fuel consumption.

Of course, wasted food equals wasted resources of all kinds, including the hard-earned money you spend on groceries that never actually reach your plate.

If you're eating healthy, fresh produce and other foods that spoil easily will be a large part of your diet. So part of being a savvy grocery shopper is knowing how to properly store your fresh foods so you actually get the chance to eat them before they spoil.

Tips for Keeping Your Groceries Fresher, Longer

First, you'll want to make sure your fridge is kept cold enough -- below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, or 4 degrees Celsius. This will ensure food safety. Also leave enough space in your fridge for cold air to circulate. If your refrigerator is too tightly packed, your food will spoil faster.

Next, you'll want to properly store each individual food.

To best preserve beets, for example, you would remove the green tops and refrigerate the beets and the greens in separate plastic bags, while corn should be refrigerated while still in the husk to stay fresh the longest.

Citrus fruits, on the other hand, can last up to two weeks right on the counter, while garlic and onions need to be stored in a dark, cool pantry, where they will stay fresh for up to four months. Berries keep the best when refrigerated unwashed in their original container.

Herbs can also be notoriously tricky to keep from wilting, but if you keep them in an air-tight container wrapped in a moistened paper towel, they'll maintain their freshness for up to 10 days in your fridge (or you can use the freezer trick mentioned earlier).

The life of leafy greens can also be extended by as much as three extra days if you don't wash them before putting them in your fridge, while bunches of asparagus should be stored upright in the refrigerator in a plastic bag in an inch of water, or with a damp towel wrapped around the base.

One of my all-time favorite tricks, which works for most produce, is to create a "vacuum pack" to help protect it from oxygen that will accelerate its decay. Leave the produce in the bag it came in from the grocery store, place it against your chest and use your arm to squeeze the excess air out of the bag.

Once the air is removed you can seal it with a twist tie and thus minimize exposure to oxygen. This simple technique can easily double or triple the normal shelf life of your vegetables by keeping oxygen away from them.

Keep in mind, too, that surface imperfections -- like small "bruises" on fruits, a minute speck of mold on a piece of cheese, or a bit of wilting -- are typically not going to make you sick. They can be cut off and the food will still be fine to eat.

The Best Place to Buy Your Groceries May Not be Your Grocery Store …

It's worth mentioning that conventional grocery stores are not really the best places to get your food. They're convenient, yes, and they may be the only option for some of you, particularly during the winter months.

But in the long run, and as much as possible, you're better off getting your food from a farmer's market or community-supported agriculture program (CSA). The food will be local, which means that it will be fresher and also will help preserve the environment by preventing the wasteful use of fossil fuels in transportation.

This winter I am in South Florida and every Sunday morning I purchase my week's supply of vegetables at Josh's Organic Garden as it really has some of the healthiest and best looking vibrant vegetables I have ever seen -- and most are grown locally.

Food grown on a smaller scale, and especially locally grown organic food, is generally safer and more nutritious than the factory-farmed food typically sold in grocery stores. And, the fresher your foods are to start with, the longer they will be safe to eat, which means you'll probably have less waste when you buy your foods from local sources as opposed to at the grocery store.

If you really want to save on groceries and get the freshest produce available, you can even consider starting your own vegetable garden this spring. When factoring in startup and maintenance costs, a well-maintained food garden yields a $500 average return each year compared to the market price of produce, according to the National Gardening Association (NGA). So there is a definite financial incentive there.

But beyond the financial reasons, starting a garden and seeing it through to harvest is very rewarding. You'll feel a great sense of accomplishment as you sit down to feast, quite literally, on the fruits of your labor.

Keep Your Focus on Nutrition, No Matter Where You Shop

The best "bargains" at your grocery store may not always be one in the same with the best choices for your health. Watch out for sales and low prices on cheap, processed pseudo-foods and realize that even if you can get a can of processed ravioli or a bag of chips for under $1, that money is being essentially wasted because the food is doing absolutely nothing beneficial for your health.

You're better off spending that dollar on a pound of string beans or zucchini, or putting it toward a pound of grass-fed meat, than you are throwing it away on processed junk food.

Fortunately, you can still find many affordable, nutritious foods at your farmer's market or local health food store, or even at the corner grocery. For ideas, here are 10 of the healthiest foods you can buy for typically less than $1. If you want to save money, also steer clear of those precut, ready-to-use fruits and veggies, as they can cost twice as much as the uncut and unprepared versions.

Finally, you can help tweak your food purchases to get the most health "bang for your buck" by focusing on those that are right for your nutritional type. The nutritional typing assessment is now absolutely free, and will give you an idea of which foods you should eat for optimal health and nutrition.

Oil Prices Skyrocket After Williams’ Latest Revelations

Oil Prices Skyrocket After Williams’ Latest Revelations

Kurt Nimmo

February 23, 2011

On the day after pastor Lindsey Williams went on the Alex Jones Show and talked about the globalist plan to destroy the dollar and jack up oil prices through the stratosphere in an effort to wreck the economy, the price of oil went up to just short of $100 per barrel. Sources inside the oil industry told Williams the price will ultimately reach between $150 and $200 per barrel. Williams also told Alex Jones the oil producers Saudi Arabia and Iran will be targeted.

Watch part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5.

Analaysts are predicting that the situation unfolding in Libya may spread to Saudi Arabia and other oil producers in the region and this will result in radical price fluctuations as sharp as those in the 1970s when an OPEC embargo produced serious gasoline shortages in the United States.

In Europe, benchmark crude for April delivery went up 74 cents at $96.16 a barrel, the highest since October 2008. The contract skyrocketed to $5.71, or 6.4 percent, and settled at $95.42 on Tuesday.

Reports indicate Gaddafi’s security forces may sabotage the country’s oil industry. “Among other things, Gaddafi has ordered security services to start sabotaging oil facilities. They will start by blowing up several oil pipelines, cutting off flow to Mediterranean ports. The sabotage, according to the insider, is meant to serve as a message to Libya’s rebellious tribes: It’s either me or chaos,” writes Ismail Zitouny for Reuters.

Libya has the largest oil reserves in Africa. It is the world’s 15th-largest crude exporter at 1.2 million barrels per day, according to the Energy Information Administration.

The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that a federal law bars lawsuits against drug makers over serious side effects from childhood vaccines.

IMVAMedical Specialties

Posted by Mark Sircus on 22 February 2011
Filed under Medicine

The Supreme Court showed the world today that there is nothing supreme or noble about it and that it is as corrupt and cruel as most other governmental institutions. In a 6-3 vote, the high court ruled for Wyeth, saying they could not be sued for vaccine damages. Wyeth is now owned by Pfizer Inc. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that federal law shields vaccine makers from product-liability lawsuits in state courts seeking damages for a child’s injuries or death from a vaccine’s side effects.

The trial case was a lawsuit by the parents of Hannah Bruesewitz, who suffered seizures as an infant after her third dose of a diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) vaccine in 1992. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday the 22nd of February 2011 sustaining the federal law that shielded vaccine manufacturers from desperate parents who seek damages for serious health problems suffered by their children.

Today’s children are hit with more shots in a day then most of us were hit with in our entire childhood. No doubt certain pharmaceutical madmen fantasize having a permanent tubular hookup with every child receiving constant (24/7) chemical injection and the Supreme Court would obviously go along with that. Pharmaceutical terrorism and medical madness is alive and well in this world of ours and is part of the backbone of our modern civilization and the legal system has totally bought into it even though they understand nothing about medicine and the consequence of supporting the madness of pharmaceutical companies.

The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 is a law that was adopted by Congress that created a special program to handle disputes in an effort to ensure a stable vaccine supply—by shielding companies from most lawsuits. The federal program, involving what is known as the vaccine court, has awarded more than $1.8 billion for vaccine injury claims in nearly 2,500 cases since 1989. It is funded by a tax on vaccines. The 1.8 billion dollars awarded is proof positive that vaccines are not safe. And everyone knows that the government employs an army of lawyers to make it as difficult as possible for parents and their lawyers to win their cases.

A careful study of pharmaceutical terrorism entails taking a trip into the darkest places that exist in humanity and it is no accident that when we make the journey we find ourselves in places where doctors and scientists work together as they did in Nazi Germany. This subject takes us to the bottom cellars of hell, into the deepest and darkest dungeon, into a place and into a type of person that defiles the very nature of beauty and love, a place where all human heart is lost. The Nazi doctors offer us a view of monsters that have remained invisible, dressed as they are eternally in three-piece suits or white lab coats. And now we have the Supreme Court of the United States in on the terror supporting laws that support and protect vaccine companies.

Let’s face it, our children’s lives have been ruined.

Have you ever lived with a family that has a child

with thimerosal-induced autism? It’s not pretty.

Not only do many of these children have no lives but they also

live in a daily hell that many cannot even begin to imagine.

They can’t sleep. They can’t communicate.

They bang their heads and roll up in pain.

Many have eating disorders or cannot tolerate most foods.

And many are easy targets of sexual predators.

Lori McIlwain

There is a direct line of continuity that can be traced between a group of men and companies that arose to the heights of industrial power years before Hitler, men and companies who existed and supported the rise of Nazi Germany and who continued on to the present day in comfortable corporate luxury and power. (The personnel, infrastructure and technology of companies like Bayer, for example, have flowed on continuously through three incarnations of corporate name and structure.)

Bayer experimental drugs were tested on Auschwitz prisoners.

One of the SS doctors at Auschwitz, Dr. Helmut Vetter, a longtime Bayer

employee, was involved in the testing of Bayer experimental vaccines and

medicines on inmates. He was later executed for giving inmates fatal

injections. “I have thrown myself into my work wholeheartedly,” he

wrote to his bosses at Bayer headquarters, “especially as I have the

opportunity to test our new preparations. I feel like I am in paradise.”

When John D. Rockefeller interlocked his American-based international empire with that of I.G. Farben in 1928 “there was created the largest and most powerful cartel the world has ever known.” Not only has that cartel survived through the years, it has grown and prospered. Eustace Mullins described very well the roots of this nightmare and how John D. Rockefeller, with the help of the American Medical Association and government officials, gained control of America’s “health” care industry in the early part of this century. “Educating” medical students was instrumental in their plan. Mullins writes: “Rockefeller’s Education Board has spent more than $100 million to gain control of the nation’s medical schools and turn our physicians to physicians of the allopathic school, dedicated to surgery and the heavy use of drugs.”

Heroin, originally created by I.G. Farben, is outlawed

in 1924 as a prescription drug in the United States.

On the day of our birth doctors and nurses, with the willing acceptance and surrender of our parents, plunge cold steel into our flesh and inject a foreign fluid laced with poison and other modified genetic materials that assaults our immune and other critical systems of our bodies. Babies cry when their basic needs are frustrated, they cry when they are in need and when they are attacked and hurt.

According to the records of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company,

from 1911 to 1935 the four leading causes of childhood deaths

from infectious diseases in the U.S.A. were diphtheria, pertussis,

scarlet fever, and measles. However, by 1945 the combined

death rates from these causes had declined by 95 percent

before the implementation of mass vaccine programs.

Harold Buttram MD

The Nuremberg War Criminal Tribunal convicted 24 I.G. Farben board members and executives on the basis of mass murder, slavery and other crimes against humanity. Amazingly however, by 1951 all of them had already been released, continuing to consult with German corporations. The Nuremberg Tribunal dissolved the I.G. Farben into Bayer, Hoechst, and BASF. Today each of the three daughters of the I.G. Farben is 20 times as big as the I.G. Farben mother was at its height in 1944, the last year of the Second World War. More importantly, for almost three decades after the Second World War, BASF, Bayer and Hoechst (now Aventis) each filled its highest position, chairman of the board, with former members of the Nazi regime.

In 1998, the pharmaceutical giant, Bayer, conducted pesticide experiments on humans in what was called the Inveresk trials. Three years later the company behind the tests stands accused of breaking the Nuremberg Code. The Sunday Herald in England reported that subjects were given a single dose of a substance called azinphos-methyl (AM) and then observed for seven days.

Mandatory vaccine programs are “A violation of the Nuremberg Code

in that they force individuals to have medical treatment

against their will, or to participate in the functional equivalent

of a vast experiment without fully informed consent.”

School Choice: No Choice (Limited Learning for Lifelong Labor)

“What is so mind boggling is that all of this is being financed by the American people themselves through their own taxes. In other words, the American people are underwriting the destruction of their own freedom and way of life by lavishly financing through federal grants the very social scientists who are undermining our national sovereignty and preparing our children to become the dumbed-down vassals of the new world order. It reminds one of how the Nazis charged their victims train fare to their own doom.” – Samuel L. Blumenfeld [1]

The significance of the charter school/school choice issue is NOT related strictly to educational choice. It is related to acceptance of a communist system of governance where decisions are made by appointed, not elected officials. Appointed officials cannot be removed from office by voters/taxpayers.

Widespread acceptance of this aspect of communist governance -- as it relates to education (U.S.A. has 17,817 operational school districts [2] that could well come under this non-elective system) -- will make it easier to usher in the unelected system across the board at the local level to the county, to the state, to the Congress, to the White House level. That will spell the end of elected representation and our freedoms established under the Constitution of the United States of America. We will be a totalitarian state.

The trashing of the schools as centers of academic learning has been planned since Carnegie Corporation in 1934 published its Conclusions and Recommendations for the Social Studies.[3] The report called for moving the United States from a free market system to a planned economy (socialism) necessary for U.S. participation in the “new world” (p.11-12), and “new order” (p.35, 36).

With our schools and our children successfully dumbed-down, “they” (identified later in this article) can count on public outcry for “change” in how schools are operated, as well as parental acceptance of charter schools. Parents will accept any solution to the tragic situation facing their children today -- including charter schools with unelected representation. But how many realize that the purpose of charter schools is not academic, but to establish a replacement structure that will focus on training for the workforce (or more simply put: limited learning for lifelong labor)? [4]

Changing governance

“Mr. Dodd, all of us who have a hand in the making of policies here have had experience operating under directives, the substance of which is that we shall use our grant-making power so to alter life in the United States that it can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.” – Norman Dodd (in a meeting with Rowan Gaither, President of the Ford Foundation, during Congressional Hearings to Investigate the Tax-Exempt Foundations, 1953)

What we are looking at is the carrying out of what Gaither explained to Dodd. Our constitutional elective representative form of government is being replaced with a communist/regional/unelective/appointive system of government.

In a speech to the Soviet Central Committee on November 2, 1987 (published by Novosti Press Agency Publishing House), Mikhail Gorbachev, then General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, said:

“We are moving toward a new world, the world of communism. We shall never turn off that road.”

What more evidence do we need of the global slide into communism than the remark made by Mikhail Gorbachev in London, England on March 23, 2000 [5] that referred to the European Union (EU) as "the New European Soviet.”[6] If Gorbachev views the EU in that way, it only stands to reason that the North American Union (NAU) -- modeled on the EU, and being implemented as I write – would be the “New American Soviet.”

In order to understand what is happening in the United States, think of our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and way of life as a three-legged stool. All three legs are being removed from this stool in order to complete the “merger of the United States with the Soviet Union” (now known as global governance, regionalism, international socialism, sustainable development, New World Order, etc.)


The three legs of the stool can be described as follows.

Traditional United States Constitutional Form of Government as it relates to education (Taxation WITH Representation):

First leg: Under unhindered, old-fashioned Free Market Capitalism all children have access to a K-12 academic public school education -- overseen by elected school board members whose decisions represent the wishes of the taxpayers who elected them. K-12 education is followed by vocational training or higher education, if desired. This classical academic education has nothing to do with school-to-work training. It allows students to become literate in the so-called ABCs and exposes them to history, art, music, sports, literature, and the world around them.

Second leg: All government (taxpayer-supported) entities including those at local, county, state, and federal levels are managed by elected, repeat elected, not appointed boards, officials. If enough voters are unhappy with elected officials’ decisions, they can vote them out of office to be replaced by citizens who hopefully will represent their wishes.

(On the other hand, the regional appointive system of governance is being used with charter schools. The appointive system does not allow voters -- who pay the taxes that support public-funded charter schools -- to remove persons whose decisions do not represent the majority of voters. Charter schools are “taxation without representation” and the concept should undergo a constitutional challenge in the courts.)

Third leg: Classical Education allows for free will. Your children, with the help of teachers, are allowed to think creatively and figure things out for themselves. Students are not subjected to the behavior modification techniques used in totalitarian societies.

Communist (Regional) Governance

First leg: Communist Pavlovian workforce training education in which government/corporation partnerships determine how many welders, doctors, ballet dancers, etc. are required for the planned economy. In addition to President Reagan signing the U.S.-Soviet cultural, educational, and scientific exchanges agreement [7] with Soviet Communist Party General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev during the 1985 Geneva Summit [8] (which began to merge the two educational systems), the Reagan administration also initiated the public/private partnership concept (which commenced the school-to-work agenda) by establishing the White House Task Force on Private Sector Initiatives. I served as a liaison from the U.S. Department of Education to the White House Task Force. I asked if this new arrangement was not “corporate fascism?” The response was: “Well, I guess nobody has looked at it that way.”

Under this partnership arrangement between schools and business, occupations are determined by around the seventh grade, and in some cases during elementary school. Students are “trained” for particular jobs or career paths, as well as attitudes and values necessary for life in the “brave new world of communism”. These schools are gradeless (no K-12) and non-competitive (no A, B, C, D, E, F grading system), and use Pavlovian-Skinnerian Outcomes/Performance/Results-based education in conjunction with the computer and its values-changing software to train, not educate.

The aforementioned restructured system is being implemented right now in the United States. This type of education/training is promoted by The Reinventing Schools Coalition (RISC) -- "a nonprofit foundation established to transform education systems around the world” – using the “RISC Approach to Schooling.”[9]

Second leg: Out with the old and highly successful representative (elective) form of government; in with the failed unelected communist/regional form of government. Implement “charter schools” (with their unelected/appointed boards) on a massive scale (17,817 school districts!). Thirty-nine states plus the District of Columbia have passed charter school legislation. There are eleven holdouts. God bless them. With charter schools there is NO accountability to taxpayer! You have NO say in how your money is spent.

Don’t forget: regionalism, which does away with elected boards, is communism. In his 1975 article “Planning is Socialism’s Trademark,” Morris Zeitlin, a communist writer for The Daily World (newspaper of the Communist Party USA), wrote how well regionalism has worked in the Soviet Union! [10]

Once citizens are accustomed to schools being managed in this way -- in order to change from academics to workforce training -- citizens will not be concerned when ALL entities/agencies at the town, city, county, state and federal levels of government are run by appointed councils (soviets). Start with the schools nationwide and then spread the communist regional, unelected council (soviet) form of governance into every area of our lives.

How long will it be before we have an unelected commissar in the White House?

Much of the regional governance system is already in place and has been operating on a second track, parallel to our Constitutional track, for at least 50 years. The internationalist termites, in and out of Congress, have been waiting to push the button for the regional system to jump track and to replace the constitutional system. This latest neocon/Obama-supported charter school move is probably the pushing of that button to move our whole country into the unelected board system. It may well be the final blow to our constitutional form of government for which millions of Americans have fought and died for during the history of the United States.

(Major communist change agent, the late Paul Mort, New York City, said in the late sixties that it takes 50 years to bring about major change.” He certainly was on target.)

Third leg: Citizens are considered human resources (animals to be trained from birth to death: UNESCO’s lifelong education under the umbrella of the unelected community commissar) using Skinnerian/Pavlovian operant conditioning. Bells and whistles used in the classroom and rewards and punishments for use in classroom and community are the wave of the future. Such manipulation has already been inflicted on my town where the Community Oriented Police System (COPS) has the local police handing out medals to citizens who do good deeds! The police determine if the deed merits a medal. Since the schools will use computers to teach and train, our children will be captive to what B.F. Skinner referred to as his “box” and totally conditioned as robots to serve the international state. For part two click below.

Breast cancer will claim the lives of 40,000 people this year.

By Dr. Mercola

According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, 200,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed each year in the US, making it three times more common than other gynecological cancers.

Breast cancer will claim the lives of 40,000 people this year.

What is really disturbing is the speed at which breast cancer rates have risen over the past 5 decades. In 1960, one in twenty women were diagnosed—but today, it is one in seven.

The following are some important facts about this type of cancer:

•One woman in eight who lives to age 85 will develop breast cancer.

•Breast cancer is the leading cause of death for women age 40 to 55.

•Fifteen percent of all breast cancers occur in women under age 45; in this age group, breast cancers are more aggressive and have lower recovery rates.

•Eighty percent of breast lumps are NON-cancerous.

•Seventy percent of breast cancers are found through breast self-exams.

•About 80 percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of breast cancer.

Unfortunately, the current medical paradigm is relatively clueless about what causes breast cancer and how to effectively treat it. Most conventional cancer treatments actually add insult to injury by doing more harm than good—a fact that up to this point has been swept under the rug by the medical industry.

Fortunately, we're beginning to see the initial stirrings of change, as you will see from the latest research I'll be presenting later.

In the largest review of research into lifestyle and breast cancer, the American Institute of Cancer Research estimated that about 40 percent of U.S. breast cancer cases could be prevented if people make wiser lifestyle choices. I believe these estimates are seriously LOW, and it is more likely that 75 to 90 percent of breast cancers could be avoided by strictly applying the recommendations I will review below.

In fact, the latest paleoanthropological research shows that cancer was virtually nonexistent in humans before poor diet and pollution appeared, finally proving that cancer is a man-made disease.

My aim for this article is to provide you with a broad understanding of the factors that lead to the development of this deadly disease—as we now understand them—and what you can do preventatively to avoid becoming the next victim..If you happen to be a man, please read on since it actually does apply to you as well.

Men are NOT Immune to Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is not a disease exclusive to women. For every 100 women with breast cancer, one man will develop the disease. The National Breast Cancer Foundation estimates approximately 1,700 men will develop breast cancer and 450 will die from it each year.

The average age men are diagnosed with breast cancer is 67, versus 62 for women, meaning male cancers are often caught in a more advanced stage. If you work around petrochemicals, your risk is much higher. Men who work around gasoline and combustion products have a significantly higher risk of developing breast cancer.

Males and their doctors may be diverted from an accurate diagnosis due to enlargement of the breasts or gynecomastia, a common and benign condition, plus the fact that men are generally less vigilant about checking for breast lumps.

Types of Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is classified into two types, based on whether or not it is invasive:

•Noninvasive (in situ) breast cancer: Cancer cells have not spread to adjacent areas of your breast—they have remained in their place of origin. The most common type is ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), which occurs in the lining of the milk ducts. Noninvasive breast cancer is sometimes called "stage 0" cancer.

•Invasive breast cancer. Cancer cells infiltrate or spread outside the membrane that lines a duct or lobule, into surrounding tissues. The cancer cells can then travel to other parts of your body. Invasive breast cancer can be stage I, II, III, or IV, depending on how advanced it is.

Breast cancer can be further classified according to what type of tissue it arises from:

•Milk ducts: Ductal carcinoma is the most common type of breast cancer.

•Milk-producing lobules: Lobular carcinoma originates in the lobules, where breast milk is produced.

•Connective tissues (muscles, fat and blood vessels): Rarely, breast cancer can originate from these breast tissues; in this case, it's called sarcoma

Inflammatory Breast Cancer: The Rarest and Most Aggressive Form

Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is a rare form of breast cancer of sudden onset (weeks to months) and can easily be confused with a breast infection (mastitis). The affected breast is red, swollen, warm and tender because cancer cells have blocked the lymphatic vessels in your breast.

You might or might not have a lump.

IBC accounts for between 1 and 5 percent of all breast cancer cases in the U.S., and is more common among younger women and African American women. There have been some cases documented in men. IBC is the most aggressive form of breast cancer, and survival rates are worse than for other types of breast cancer.

You should seek medical attention immediately if you have the above symptoms—or if you are being treated for mastitis but your symptoms are not resolving as expected.

Signs and Symptoms to Watch For

The most common signs and symptoms of breast cancer include the following:

•A breast lump or thickening that feels different from the surrounding tissue

•Bloody discharge, or other unusual discharge, from your nipple

•A change in your breast's size or shape

•Changes in the skin on your breast, such as dimpling or indentation

•Redness or pitting of your breast skin—kind of like the skin of an orange

•Pain or tenderness in your breast

•An inverted nipple

•Peeling or flaking of the nipple

•Enlarged lymph nodes or swelling in your armpit

If you have any of these changes, you should consult your healthcare provider immediately. But don't panic—remember, the majority of breast tumors are benign. Many of the above signs can indicate other issues besides cancer, and your healthcare provider can help you sort it out.

What Causes Breast Cancer?

We now know that breast inflammation is KEY to the development and progression of breast cancer. Inflammation is not the cause, but rather is a key process that sets the stage for breast cancer to occur. There are certainly many aggravating factors, from foods to chemicals in the environment to lifestyle patterns and genetics—but it is the INFLAMMATION that these things cause that starts the wheel turning.

Scientists have shown that an inflammatory process within the breast itself promotes growth of breast cancer stem cells. That's the bad news.

The good news?

Researchers were able to inactivate this inflammation selectively, which reduced the activity of these stem cells and stopped breast cancer from forming. Although your genes are a factor in your breast cancer risk, it is not your genes that dictate your health but rather the expression of them, and that depends on what genes you "turn on and off" with your lifestyle and emotional state (epigenetic factors).

In other words, you have more power over your health than your genetics does!

Breast Cancer is Closely Tied to Estrogen Exposure

There are a number of studies that have given us clues about the factors contributing to breast cancer. But one of the most significant factors is synthetic hormone replacement therapy (HRT). According to a study published online in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, breast cancer rates for women dropped in tandem with decreased use of HRT. In Canada, between 2002 and 2004, HRT use dropped by 7.8 percent. During that same time, breast cancer rates also fell by 9.6 percent.

This further supports existing evidence that HRT is linked with breast cancer, which is an estrogen-related cancer. So it is no surprise that giving women potent synthetic estrogens will increase their risk.

However, there's a twist.

After remaining stable at around five percent between 2004 and 2006, breast cancer rates then began to rise again, even though HRT use remained low. The researchers claim this is an indication that HRT simply speeds up tumor growth, as opposed to directly causing it.

It's also important to remember that you are exposed to a large number of estrogen-like compounds daily, called xenoestrogens. Estrogen pollution is increasingly present all around you, from plastics to canned food and drinks, food additives, household cleaning products, and pesticides. And estrogen levels are rising in our waterways as a result of the runoff from factory animal farms.

Still, whether it's a promoter or a causative factor, there's good reason to be wary of using HRT to address natural menopause. There is no reason to subject yourself to synthetic hormones when you reach menopause—the risk is simply too great.

If you are experiencing excessive menopausal symptoms, you may want to consider bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which uses hormones that are molecularly identical to the ones your body produces and does not wreak havoc on your system, which is a much safer alternative.

There are similar risks for younger women who use oral contraceptives—birth control pills, which are also comprised of synthetic hormones—have been linked to cervical and breast cancers. Another aggravating factor in breast cancer is, unfortunately, the breast cancer screening tool itself.

Are Mammograms Fueling Breast Cancer Rates?

Mammography is a great example of a stubborn head-in-the-sand approach to cancer screening. Americans are already exposed to seven times more radiation from diagnostic scans than they were in 1980. It is well known that ionizing radiation increases the cellular mutations that lead to cancer—and mammograms aim a highly focused dose directly at your breasts, thereby increasing your cancer risk!

WHY would you want to do this?

Mammograms expose your body to radiation that can be 1,000 times greater than a chest x-ray, which we know poses a cancer risk. Mammography also compresses your breasts tightly, and often painfully, which could lead to a lethal spread of cancerous cells, should they exist. Dr. Charles B. Simone, a former clinical associate in immunology and pharmacology at the National Cancer Institute, said:

"Mammograms increase the risk for developing breast cancer and raise the risk of spreading or metastasizing an existing growth."

Others have spoken out against mammography. Dr. Samuel Epstein, a top cancer expert who has been warning people for years about the dangers of mammography, explains:

"The premenopausal breast is highly sensitive to radiation, each 1 rad exposure increasing breast cancer risk by about 1 percent, with a cumulative 10 percent increased risk for each breast over a decade's screening..."

"The high sensitivity of the breast, especially in young women, to radiation-induced cancer was known by 1970. Nevertheless, the establishment then screened some 300,000 women with X-ray dosages so high as to increase breast cancer risk by up to 20 percent in women aged 40 to 50 who were mammogramed annually."

In July 1995, an article in The Lancet about mammograms read:

"The benefit is marginal, the harm caused is substantial, and the costs incurred are enormous."

There is no solid evidence that mammograms save lives, in spite of the propaganda some organizations constantly parrot to the press. Mammograms are often touted as a "life-saving" form of cancer screening, responsible for reducing breast cancer death rates by 15 to 25 percent. But this reported benefit is based on outdated studies done decades ago.

In September 2010, the New England Journal of Medicine, one of the most prestigious medical journals, published the first recent study in years to look at the effectiveness of mammograms, and their findings are a far cry from what most public health officials and physicians would have you believe.

Their bottom line was that mammograms might have only reduced cancer death rates by 0.4 deaths per 1,000 women—an amount so small it may as well be zero. Put another way, 2,500 women would have to be screened over 10 years for a single breast cancer death to be avoided.

So, not only are mammograms unsafe, but they are NOT saving lives as many professionals believed they were.

Past research has also demonstrated that adding an annual mammogram to a careful physical examination of the breasts does not improve breast cancer survival rates over a physical examination alone.

False Positives are Alarmingly Common in Mammography

Another glaring problem with mammography is its unacceptably high rate of false positives. If a mammogram detects an abnormal spot in a woman's breast, the next step is typically a biopsy. This involves taking a small amount of tissue from the breast, which is then looked at by a pathologist under a microscope to determine if cancer is present. Estimates are that 17 percent of DCIS cases found through needle biopsy are misdiagnosed.

Mammograms carry a first-time false positive rate of up to 6 percent.

The problem is that early stage cancer like DCIS can be very hard to diagnose, and pathologists have a wide range of experience and expertise. There are no diagnostic standards for DCIS, and there are no requirements that the pathologists doing the readings have specialized expertise.

Dr. Shahla Masood, the head of pathology at the University of Florida College of Medicine in Jacksonville, told the New York Times:

"There are studies that show that diagnosing these borderline breast lesions occasionally comes down to the flip of a coin."

Unnecessary Mastectomies are More Common than You Might Think

False positives can lead to unnecessary emotional stress and expensive repeat screenings, exposing you to even more radiation, chemotherapy, and unnecessary invasive procedures including biopsies and major surgery. Women have actually undergone unnecessary mastectomies after receiving a false positive mammogram report.

After receiving a breast cancer diagnosis, most women are afraid and even frantic to do whatever it takes, as soon as possible, to fight and remove the cancer. And usually, that involves the "slash and burn" approach. Can you imagine what it would be like to go through surgery, having one or both of your breasts removed along with receiving debilitating radiation treatments and toxic drugs, only to later be told that you never had cancer?

This scenario happens more often than you might think; you can read about several women's terrifying ordeals with false breast cancer diagnoses here.

And there is new evidence that breast cancer might go away on its own a fair amount of the time. Yes—WITHOUT intervention. A group of researchers who track breast cancer rates found evidence to suggest that some tumors found by mammograms might naturally disappear on their own.

Mammograms will not prevent you from getting breast cancer, and the latest study shows they offer very little benefit in improving your chances of survival. Effective cancer screening methods are important, but mammography is simply NOT the answer.

But then, what is the answer?

The screening tool I recommend is breast thermography.

Thermography: Cancer's Best Kept Secret

By measuring the radiation of infrared heat from your body, thermographic screening can detect signs of breast cancer as much as 10 years earlier than either mammography or a physical exam—all without any ionizing radiation or mechanical pressure.

And thermography has NO damaging side effects.

Thermographic breast screening is able to predict the likelihood of breast cancer, before any tumors have formed, because it provides a snapshot of the early stages of angiogenesis—the formation of a direct supply of blood to cancer cells, which is a necessary step before they can grow into sizeable tumors.

This is the classic use of "preventative medicine" because you can detect negative changes before you develop the disease—while you still have time to turn things around.

Annual thermograms allow you to map changes in your body's heat patterns over time. If you would like to learn more about thermography, I invite you to download my FREE thermography report.

What About Breast Self-Exams?

Breast self-exams have long been recommended as a simple way for women to keep track of anything unusual in their breasts. Now, after studies have found that such exams do not reduce breast cancer death rates and actually increase the rate of unnecessary biopsies, many experts are recommending a more relaxed approach known as "breast awareness."

Breast awareness is really self-explanatory. It means you should regularly check your breasts for changes, but can do so in a way that feels natural to you. In other words, you don't have to do it on the same day each month, or using any particular pattern.

Simply be aware of what's normal for you so you can recognize anything out of the ordinary. Although breast cancer is much less common in men, it certainly wouldn't hurt for men to practice "breast awareness" as well.

One of the BEST Supplements for Breast Cancer

Dr. William LaValley from Austin Texas, is one of the top natural medicine cancer physicians I know and he recently shared this important information on curcumin which has the most evidence based literature for as a cancer support than any other nutrient. There are over 100 different pathways that curcumin has an effect on once it gets into the cell. Interestingly this also includes the metabolite of curcumin and its derivatives which are also anti-cancer. Curcumin appears to be safe in the treatment of all cancers.

In India where turmeric is widely used, the prevalence of four common U.S. cancers -- colon, breast, prostate and lung -- is 10 times lower. In fact, prostate cancer, which is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in U.S. men, is rare in India and this is attributed, in part, to the curcumin in turmeric.

Numerous studies have looked into this potential cancer-fighting link, with promising results. For instance, curcumin has been found to:

•Inhibit the proliferation of tumor cells

•Inhibit the transformation of cells from normal to tumor

•Help your body destroy mutated cancer cells so they cannot spread throughout your body

•Decrease inflammation

•Enhance liver function

•Inhibit the synthesis of a protein thought to be instrumental in tumor formation

•Prevent the development of additional blood supply necessary for cancer cell growth

And according to researchers from the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, curcumin blocks a key biological pathway needed for development of melanoma and other cancers.

The spice actually stops laboratory strains of melanoma from proliferating and pushes the cancer cells to commit suicide by shutting down nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB), a powerful protein known to induce abnormal inflammatory response that leads to an assortment of disorders such as arthritis and cancer.

To get the full benefits that curcumin has to offer, you will want to look for a turmeric extract with at least 95% curcuminoids that contains only 100% certified organic ingredients.

The formula should be free of fillers, additives and excipients (a substance added to the supplement as a processing or stability aid), and the manufacturer should use safe production practices at all stages: planting, cultivation, selective harvesting, and then producing and packaging the final product.

Details on How to Use Curcumin

The unfortunate challenge as this time is that there are not really any very good formulations of curcumin available to use in cancer. This is because relatively high doses are required and curcumin is not absorbed that well. Typical anticancer doses are up to three grams of good bioavailable curcmin extract, three to four times daily.

One work around for this is to use the curcumin powder and make a microemulsion of it by combining a tablespoon of the powder and mixing it into 1-2 egg yolks and a teaspoon or two of melted coconut oil. Then using a high speed hand blender to emulsify the powder.

Another strategy you can use to increase absorption is to put one tablespoon of the curcumin powder into a quart of boiling water. It must be boiling when you add the powder as it will not work as well if you put it in room temperature water and heat the water and curcumin. After boiling it for ten minutes you will have created a 12% solution and you can drink this once it has cooled down. The curcumin will gradually fall out of solution over time and in about six hours it will be a 6% solution so it is best to drink the water within four hours. It does have a woody taste.

One caution to know is that you want to avoid the "yellow kitchen" syndrome. Curcumin is a very potent yellow pigment and can permanently discolor surfaces if you aren't careful. So you can perform the mixing under the hood of your stove with the blower on to make sure no powder gets into your kitchen.

Keeping Abreast of the Research

I mentioned earlier that we are beginning to see the stirrings of change. Let me clarify what I meant by that. New scientific research on old methodologies is challenging some of the long-held notions about conventional cancer treatments, and some of this research is making it into mainstream medical journals.

Cancer screening is finally getting some long-awaited scrutiny, as it should be. And that process has found some of the conventional breast cancer treatment methods to be significantly flawed and in need of revision. It's about time!

Here are some of the more significant recent findings related to conventional breast cancer treatment:

1.Needle biopsies

Needle biopsies are widely used as part of the traditional allopathic approach to diagnosing breast cancer. But they may accidentally cause malignant cells to break away from a tumor, allowing it to spread to other areas of your body.

According to a study from the John Wayne Cancer Institute, it appears that a needle biopsy may increase the spread of cancer by 50 percent compared to patients who receive excisional biopsies, also known as lumpectomies.


A 2010 study found, for certain women, a lumpectomy might not be necessary. The procedure was found to not prolong survival or prevent recurrence of breast cancer.

3.Lymph Node Removal

Lymph node removal might not be necessary after all. Today, the standard treatment for breast cancer patients whose cancer has spread to the sentinel lymph node is to surgically remove the other nodes as well—a procedure called axillary node dissection. (The "sentinel node" refers to the node closest to the tumor, or the lymph node that can be reached by metastasizing cancer cells first.)

However, according to this latest study, lymph node removal has virtually no impact on survival or disease recurrence, while it causes additional pain and debilitation. After five years, 82.2 percent of the women who had the axillary nodes removed were still alive and in remission, compared to 83.8 percent of the women who did not get the operation.

And, interestingly enough, the cancer recurrence was actually slightly higher in the group who had the operation, compared to those who didn't.

4.Chemotherapy and Radiation

In addition to the removal of lymph nodes, current conventional treatment also typically includes chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Chemo is a standard recommendation for women whose cancer has spread to their lymph nodes, despite its magnificent failure rate and oftentimes lethal side effects. One study concluded that as many as 18,000 of the 45,000 women each year who undergo chemo for breast cancer could safely skip it.

Similarly, six or more weeks of radiation are also part of the standard treatment for most women with breast cancer. However, according to another recent study, just ONE dose of radiation, delivered with precision to the affected site directly after her lumpectomy, had the same rate of effectiveness as the extended radiation treatment.

Breast Cancer Prevention Musts

A healthful diet, regular physical exercise, appropriate sun exposure or oral supplements to optimize your vitamin D levels, and an effective means of managing your emotional health are the cornerstones of just about any cancer prevention program, including breast cancer.

Regular physical activity has been shown to decrease the likelihood of developing breast cancer, as well as decreasing your chances of dying from it by 50 percent, once diagnosed.

It is also important to watch out for excessive iron levels. Elevated iron is actually quite common once women stop menstruating. The extra iron works as a powerful oxidant, increasing free radicals in your body and thereby increasing your risk of cancer.

The best way to monitor your iron is to have your ferritin level drawn. Ferritin is the iron transport protein and should not be above 80. If yours is elevated, you can reduce it simply by donating your blood.

The following lifestyle strategies will help you to further lower your breast cancer risk:

•Optimize your vitamin D. Vitamin D influences virtually every cell in your body and is one of nature's most potent cancer fighters. This is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself from cancer.

Vitamin D is actually able to enter cancer cells and trigger apoptosis (cell death). When JoEllen Welsh, a researcher with the State University of New York at Albany, injected a potent form of vitamin D into human breast cancer cells, half of them shriveled up and died within days! The vitamin D worked as well at killing cancer cells as the toxic breast cancer drug Tamoxifen, without any of the detrimental side effects and at a tiny fraction of the cost.

If you have cancer, your vitamin D level should be between 70 and 100 ng/ml. Vitamin D works synergistically with every cancer treatment I'm aware of, with no adverse effects.

I invite you to watch my one-hour free lecture on vitamin D to find out what your optimal vitamin D levels should be and how to optimize them.

•Get plenty of natural vitamin A. There is evidence that vitamin A also plays a roll in preventing breast cancer. It's best to obtain it from vitamin A rich foods, rather than a supplement. Your best sources are organic egg yolks, raw butter, raw whole milk, and beef or chicken liver.

However, beware of supplementing as there's some evidence that vitamin A can negate the benefits of vitamin D. Since appropriate vitamin D levels are crucial for your health in general, not to mention cancer prevention, this means that it's essential to have the proper ratio of vitamin D to vitamin A in your body.

Ideally, you'll want to provide all the vitamin A and vitamin D substrate your body needs in such a way that your body can regulate both systems naturally. This is best done by eating colorful vegetables (for vitamin A) and by exposing your skin to sun every day (for vitamin D).

•Avoid charring your meats. Charcoal or flame broiled meat is linked with increased breast cancer risk. Acrylamide—a carcinogen created when starchy foods are baked, roasted or fried—has been found to increase breast cancer risk as well.

•Avoid unfermented soy products. Unfermented soy is high in plant estrogens, or phytoestrogens, also known as isoflavones. In some studies, soy appears to work in concert with human estrogen to increase breast cell proliferation, which increases the chances for mutations and cancerous cells.

•Improve Your Insulin Receptor Sensitivity. The best way to do this is with exercise and a diet comprised of foods appropriate for your nutritional type.

•Maintain a healthy body weight. This will come naturally when you begin eating right for your nutritional type and exercising. It's important to lose excess body fat because fat produces estrogen.

•Drink a quart of organic green vegetable juice daily. Please review my juicing instructions for more detailed information

•Get plenty of high quality animal-based omega-3 fats, such as krill oil. Omega-3 deficiency is a common underlying factor for cancer.

•Curcumin. This is the active ingredient in turmeric and in high concentrations can be very useful in the treatment of breast cancer. Concern must be addressed with the solubility though as it is not well absorbed. However it does show great therapeutic potential in preventing breast cancer metastasis.

•Avoid drinking alcohol, or at least limit your alcoholic drinks to one per day.

•Breastfeed exclusively for up to six months. Research shows this will reduce your breast cancer risk.

•Avoid wearing underwire bras. There is a good deal of data that metal underwire bras increase your breast cancer risk.

•Avoid electromagnetic fields as much as possible. Even electric blankets can increase your cancer risk.

Other Research-Based "Dos and Don'ts"

The following is a list of various factors that have been scientifically found to impact breast cancer in one way or another. Many are isolated studies that offer food for thought and open up potential avenues for future research. For more information on each, simply click on the links provided.

•Depression can influence breast cancer survival. Women whose depression lifts in the first year after being told they have advanced breast cancer outlive by more than two years those whose depression symptoms worsened.

•SSRIs (a category of antidepressant drug) are associated with increased breast cancer risk.

•CoQ10 appears to be another useful tool. Ubiquinol would be the preferred form as it works better than the oxidized CoQ10.

•Black cohosh shows promise in fighting breast cancer by inducing apoptosis in human breast cancer cells.

•Artemisinin (a compound in wormwood) has been shown to be toxic to human breast cancer cells.

•A high carbohydrate diet may increase your breast cancer risk.

•Foods that have a scientific basis for fighting breast cancer include kelp, spicy foods, cruciferous vegetables (especially broccoli), and evening primrose oil.

•Three cups of tea daily may slash your breast cancer risk by 50 percent.

•If you eat a poor diet, it can cause DNA changes that may increase your daughters' and granddaughters' risk of breast cancer.

•Antiperspirants can increase your breast cancer risk due to their toxic metals, such as aluminum, which influence estrogen activity.

•Too much light at night was found to increase breast cancer by inhibiting melatonin in a study by the American National Cancer Institute.

•Women who have had an abortion are up to twice as likely to develop breast cancer, according to a British study.

If You're Diagnosed With Early Stage Breast Cancer

In the event that you are diagnosed with DCIS or another form of early stage breast cancer, always get a second—and possibly third and fourth—opinion. I cannot stress this enough, since the false positive rates are just too high and the diagnostic criteria too subjective.

Before you make any decision on treatment—and definitely before you decide to have surgery or chemotherapy—make sure your biopsy results have been reviewed by a breast specialist who is knowledgeable and experienced in that field.

The majority of breast cancer is preventable. But if you are hit with that diagnosis, don't lose hope! There is a great deal you can do to harness your body's own powerful healing abilities.

The Illuminati Vow of Silence

February 17, 2011

Har-Poor-Kraat - The Egyptian god-form of Horus, the god of the sun.

by William Ramsey


To understand the New World Order, we must examine the secretive culture that gave rise to it. Forged in the occult and socialized in elite clubs, the doctrine of secrecy is essential to the exercise and preservation of power and influence. This doctrine of silence is not a recent invention; its provenance reaches back into past civilizations.

The Egyptians had their own God of Silence: Haar-Poor-Kraat, a god-form of Horus. This god-form has always been depicted with the right hand placed toward the mouth with one finger over the lips in a gesture of silence.

The Greeks had their own God of Silence as well: Harpocrates, a version of the Egyptian God of Silence. This god-form was similarly depicted as his Egyptian counterpart, with the right hand placed toward the mouth and one finger over the lips in a gesture of silence.

Harpocrates, the Greek god of silence.


In the late 18th Century, Sir Francis Dashwood organized an elite group of English Lords and other elites for drink and debauchery in the English countryside. Sir Francis's club was never originally known as a Hellfire Club; it was given this name much later.

His club used a number of other names, such as the Brotherhood of St. Francis of Wycombe, Order of Knights of West Wycombe, The Order of the Friars of St Francis of Wycombe and later, after moving their meetings to Medmenham Abbey, they became the Monks or Friars of Medmenham.

The first meeting at Sir Francis's family home in West Wycombe was held on Walpurgisnacht, an important day for occultists. In 1751, Dashwood leased Medmenham Abbey on the Thames River.

Underneath the Abbey, Dashwood had an intricate series of caves carved out from the soft chalk hill. At night, disguised revelers journeyed by boat up the Thames to the Hellfire caverns.

The Club was decorated with mythological themes, phallic symbols and other items of a sexual nature. The motto "fait ce que voudras, or "do what thou wilt" was placed above a doorway in stained glass.

The axiom "do what thou wilt was derived from the French playwright Rabelais, who defined a community of individuals who dedicated their lives to personal freedom:

All their life was regulated not by laws, statutes or rules, but according to their free will and pleasure. They rose from bed when they pleased, and drank, ate, worked and slept when the fancy seized them. Nobody woke them; nobody compelled them either to eat or to drink, or to do anything else whatever... In their rules there was only one clause: do what thou wilt.[1]

The doctrine of silence was emphasized at the Hellfire Club: Dashwood definitely created an ancient Egyptian-Graeco-Roman theme for the club. The visitor to Medmenham was welcomed by a statue of Harpocrates, as well as of his female equivalent, the goddess Angerona. They seem to be there to remind the members that they are required to be silent about what goes on inside.[2]


The black magician Aleister Crowley (1875-1947), the foremost occultist of the early 20th century, adapted the theme of "do what thou wilt" and the doctrine of silence into the structure of a new religion.

A wealthy, Cambridge-educated world traveler, Crowley (rhymes with holy) associated with the artistic and cultural luminaries of his era, including such noted figures as Ernest Hemingway, W. B. Yeats and H. L. Mencken.

Fully committed to the transformation and illumination of the entire world, Crowley wrote books detailing his vision of the ideal society: the strong over the weak, the maintenance of a patriarchal aristocracy ruling over a slave state, and the Darwinian killing of the unfit.

According to the Beast, a small elite must rule over the masses: "You will observe that I am advocating an aristocratic revolution. And so I am!"[3] Most of Crowley's evil doctrines have been kept secret in the past through initiation requirements in satanic lodges. Crowley emphasized the doctrine of silence, as seen below in full magical garb making the stance and gesture of silence.


In the middle of the Yale University campus rests a nearly windowless Greco-Egyptian building with imposing iron doors. This is the home of America's infamous secret society---Skull and Bones, founded in 1832. In the interior atrium of the building is a font with two skeletons with their hands over their lips in the gesture of silence. Thus, the theme of silence has continued through generations of initiated Bonesmen.

Inside of the Atrium of the Skull and Bones Tomb, Two skeletons over a ceremonial font make the Sign of Silence.


A modern "Hellfire Club" exists in the United States, called the Bohemian Club. Located in San Francisco, California, the club convenes an annual all-male gathering in the Bohemian Grove redwoods of Sonoma County, located north of San Francisco. Drunkenness and debauchery similar to the 18th Century Hellfire Clubs take place there for two weeks every year.

The patron saint of the gathering is St. John of Nepomuk, (left) who was reputedly thrown into a river and drowned because he would not reveal the secret confessions of his parishioners to the Bohemian queen. A prominent statue of the Eastern European saint is located in Prague (see below).

The Bohemian Club members have distorted the saintliness of John of Nepomuk for their own purposes. The perverted statue of John of Nepomuk making the sign of silence guards the library room in the Bohemian Club building in San Francisco.

During Bohemian Grove meetings in the woods, the statue of John of Nepomuk making the occult gesture of silence is carefully transported from the Club in San Francisco to a hallowed tree near the center of the wooded Grove. Apparently, meetings are held around the statue and attendees are reminded of the need for discretion while attending Grove revelries.


As this article demonstrates, the doctrine of silence pervades Western occult groups and their practices. The importance of silence in the elite stretches from ancient Egypt to current pagan and occult influenced secret societies. Members of these furtive groups emphasize silence to prevent curious individuals excluded from these secret societies from easily determining their agendas.

Furthermore, important personal and business connections remain undisclosed to the public by individuals committed to a code of silence. This silence ensures the preservation of power and influence by individuals involved in these secret societies and secret arrangements. This code of silence operates as a hidden cancer in any society, and must be exposed to ensure transparent and equitable political and business arrangements.

Question: Why would Government Corporations publish CAFR reports if they are trying to mislead the public? Wouldn't it be easier for them to keep this type of information from the public instead of making it so easily available on the internet?






That is a no brain-er. By putting it out there they can say: "Look, we are not hiding anything, it can be found on our website or at the reference desk of the library for the last thirty years."

REALITY NOW SPEAKING: If I stole a million dollars from you and created the Walter - Peter property management corp. that required two-million to start, and listed you as half owner but never told you over the next 20 years as I moved; spent; invested the wealth generated therefrom, but when you stumbled upon the partnership by accident one day, saw that a million dollars was used by me to start the company the day after it was stolen from you and you confronted me. What would you think and do if I replied back:

"What are you talking about, I used your million dollars to benefit you in our partnership, I hid nothing from you, your name is on the company, and it was registered with the state and in fact I did all of the annual reports for you and took care of everything.

Milkweed sap cures common skin cancers

Milkweed sap cures common skin cancers

Tuesday, February 15, 2011 by: S. L. Baker, features writer

(NaturalNews) If you talk about herbs, plants and other totally natural substances having the potential to actually cure cancer, odds are you'll be greeted with eye-rolling and disbelief -- especially from the mainstream medical establishment. But research just published in the Journal of British Dermatology provides compelling evidence that the sap from a common weed known as milkweed or petty surge can literally cure certain types of cancers.

Although regarded as a nuisance weed by most gardeners, the plant (whose botanical name is Euphorbia peplus) has been valued for centuries in many folk medicine traditions as a treatment for asthma, warts and several types of cancer. Now a group of Australian scientists from a number of medical institutions in Brisbane have tested milkweed sap on humans and found that it works remarkably well on non-melanoma skin cancers. The researchers believe the plant substance is effective due to a compound it contains called ingenol mebutate which destroys cancer cells.

Non-melanoma skin cancers, which affect hundreds of thousands of people world-wide, are rarely fatal. However, they can be disfiguring without treatment -- which can involve extensive and repeated surgery. These malignant lesions usually appear on the areas of the body most often exposed to the sun, including the head, neck, ears, and back of the hands.

For the new study, the researchers recruited 36 patients with a total of 48 non-melanoma lesions included basal cell carcinomas (BCC), squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) and intraepidermal carcinomas (IEC), a growth of cancerous cells confined to the outer layer of the skin. Some of these people had skin cancers that had failed to respond to conventional treatment including surgery. The rest had refused surgery or had been told surgery was not an option for them due to advanced age.

The research participants were treated once a day for three consecutive days by an oncologist who used a cotton applicator to simply cover the surface of each cancerous lesion with milkweed sap. One month later, 41 out of 48 cancers had complete disappeared.

Patients who had some of lesions remaining after four weeks were given a second course of milkweed sap treatment. And about 15 months following treatment, two thirds of all the 48 skin cancer lesions were still showing a complete cure. The final outcome was a 75 per cent total response for IEC lesions, 57 per cent for BCC and 50 per cent for SCC lesions. What's more, when the lesions disappeared, the skin was left soft and clear.

Discover the cancer-fighting power of raspberries

Discover the cancer-fighting power of raspberries

Thursday, February 10, 2011 by: Jonathan Benson, staff writer

(NaturalNews) A preliminary study out of Clemson University (CU) in South Carolina has found that raspberries are a powerful weapon against cancer. Researchers there say that, in tests, raspberry extracts successfully destroyed about 90 percent of stomach, colon, and breast cancer cells.

Raspberries are rich in powerful antioxidants, which are known to be powerful cancer fighters. But the research team from the CU Department of Nursing believe that some other substance in raspberries is also responsible for their anti-cancer effect.

For their study, the team tested the effects of an extract of Meeker red raspberries, a popular U.S. variety of the fruit. Compared to an ascorbic acid (vitamin C) solution with more antioxidants, the raspberry extract proved to be eight times more effective, clearly indicating that some other substance is responsible for the destruction of cancer cells.

For breast cancer cells, however, the team found that common antioxidants are about half as effective as raspberries at eliminating cancer cells. But in all cases, the combination of the raspberries' antioxidants and other cancer-fighting substances proved to be the most effective of any other substance tested.

A 2009 study published in the American Association for Cancer Research journal Cancer Prevention Research found that specific antioxidants in black raspberries known as anthocyanins effectively inhibit esophageal cancer cell growth and trigger apoptosis, the death of existing cancer cells (

"[Raspberries] contain ellagic acid that laboratory studies have shown may help prevent cancers of the skin, bladder, lung, esophagus, and breast," writes Elaine Magee in her book Food Synergy: Unleash Hundreds of Powerful Healing Food Combinations to Fight Disease and Live Well.

Raspberries are also known to fight leukemia, oral cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stomach ulcers, and high cholesterol (

A report surfaced on the Internet saying the FDA was banning intravenous vitamin C treatments. While the report proved to be a hoax

Volume 4, Issue 6 February 10, 2011

Have you seen this

vitamin C hoax?

You may have heard the news about vitamin C a couple weeks ago. A report surfaced on the Internet saying the FDA was banning intravenous vitamin C treatments. While the report proved to be a hoax, it did increase the awareness of the treatment. Let me show you just how important this treatment is — and why a ban would be disastrous.

I talked to a colleague of mine a few weeks ago. He told me that he was giving up his hospital affiliation. This means that he will no longer be able to treat any of his patients who are in the hospital. This is the same thing I did 30 years ago, only one year after I first began to devote my career to natural healing.

Why I call this "natural

body armor" against

inflammatory fires...

Not only does it contain 9 of the best nutrients for taming inflammation, it includes them at levels up to three times higher than other supplements.

Plus, it's the only one to include a remarkable discovery that quenches the fire in every part of your body-so you get fast relief.

When I asked him why he decided to no longer work in the hospital, he cited the same reason that I had. There is just no use knowing all about natural healing when the hospitals won't let you do it. The patient really has no choice but to have drug-oriented physicians treat them. So when a patient of mine or his needs hospitalization, we can't care for them, we just pray for them. And vitamin C is one of those natural treatments that really belongs in the hospital.

Why? Because vitamin C is so instrumental in helping the body in times of a trauma (such as surgery) that your body uses it up quickly. In fact, it often uses it up in only a matter of minutes. Then after surgery, the levels remain low. But not to worry, surgeons and nutritionists say, hospitals routinely give post operative patients vitamin C in their IVs. But here's the problem. According to the authors of a recent study, "To normalize plasma vitamin C concentration, much higher doses than the recommended daily allowance or doses recommended in parenteral [intravenous] nutrition guidelines are needed in these patients."

And that's what makes me crazy.

We knew this 30 years ago! Thirty years ago, I told the nutrition committee in my hospital that I wanted to give my surgical patients doses of vitamin C much larger than the RDA in order to prevent complications. They told me categorically: "No!" It was too dangerous, they said.

Now, 30 years later, vitamin C has suddenly become much safer.

The researchers in this study now recommend: "In uncomplicated surgical patients, more than 500 mg/day of vitamin C may be required, with much higher doses in surgical intensive care unit patients." That's seven times the RDA!

They go on, "In uncomplicated gastrointestinal surgery, continuous parenteral [intravenous] administration of 500 mg/day of vitamin C reduced postoperative oxidative stress." And, "Postoperative atrial fibrillation was prevented after cardiac surgery by perioperative vitamin C supplementation."

While this is a move in the right direction, it's not enough. The amount of vitamin C that's really needed in many post-surgical and critically ill patients is closer to 100 times what these researchers recommend. I and many other doctors treating patients with cancer routinely give patients 120,000 mg of intravenous vitamin C (in the form of ascorbate) in only three hours. That's 24 times the dose recommended by this study!

Vitamin C at these levels is not only safe, it's often very effective. I can't prove it (because no one has tested it; in fact, no one is allowed to test it), but I can almost guarantee that if hospitals used these higher doses in surgical patients, it would save many lives and a ton of money. But don't despair, the odds are good that we will see these kinds of doses in only another 30-40 years.

If you must have surgery, whenever possible have your integrative physician give you an IV of vitamin C the day before. And have him do it again the day after you get out of the hospital. It will significantly improve your recovery.

In recent years vitamin D has emerged as a star of the "vitamin" world. For example, there are currently over 800 studies showing vitamin D's effectiveness against cancer. Optimizing your vitamin D levels can literally cut your risk of several cancers by 50 percent!

Further, middle aged and elderly people with high levels of vitamin D could reduce their chances of developing heart disease or diabetes by 43 percent.

Scientists have actually identified a total of nearly 3,000 genes that are upregulated by vitamin D. Because vitamin D is actually a "prohormone," which your body produces from cholesterol, it influences your entire body -- receptors that respond to the vitamin have been found in almost every type of human cell, from your brain to your bones.

So what modern science has now realized is that vitamin D does more than just aid in the absorption of calcium and bone formation, it is also involved in multiple repair and maintenance functions, touches thousands of different genes, regulates your immune system, and much, much more.

Just one example of an important gene that vitamin D up-regulates is your ability to fight infections, as well as chronic inflammation. It produces over 200 antimicrobial peptides, the most important of which is cathelicidin, a naturally occurring broad-spectrum antibiotic.

This is one of the explanations for why it's so effective against colds and influenza.

In addition, since vitamin D also modulates (balances) your immune response, it can prevent an overreaction in the form of inflammation, which can lead to a variety of autoimmune disorders, such as Crohn's disease for example. Research has even uncovered that vitamin D may be an effective therapeutic agent to treat or prevent allergy to a common mold.

Among the many other benefits that research is revealing, low levels of vitamin D also double your risk of stroke, which is the third leading cause of death in the United States.

This adds to research that also found vitamin D deficiency is associated with arterial stiffness, a risk factor for heart disease and stroke. A separate study from Finland also found that those with the lowest vitamin D levels had a 25 percent higher risk of dying from heart disease or stroke, and when only stroke was looked at, those with the lowest levels had twice the risk as those with the highest.

So you can see that optimizing your vitamin D levels is easily one of the best ways to help prevent a myriad of diseases and conditions, ranging from heart disease, diabetes and cancer to autoimmune disorders, stroke, colds and flu.

What is the Best Form of Vitamin D?

Ideally, the best place to get vitamin D is from your skin being exposed to the UV-B that is in normal sunlight. Vitamin D from sunlight acts as a pro-hormone, rapidly converting into 25-hydroxyvitamin D, or vitamin D3. A common myth is that occasional exposure of your face and hands to sunlight is "sufficient" for vitamin D nutrition. For most of us, this is an absolutely inadequate exposure to move vitamin D levels to the healthy range.

To optimize your levels, you need to expose large portions of your skin to the sun, and you need to do it for more than a few minutes. And, contrary to popular belief, the best time to be in the sun for vitamin D production is actually as near to solar noon as possible.

If you want to get out in the sun to maximize your vitamin D production, and minimize your risk of malignant melanoma, the middle of the day (roughly between 10:00am and 2:00pm) is the best and safest time to go.During this time you need the shortest exposure time to produce vitamin D because UVB rays are most intense at this time. Plus, when the sun goes down toward the horizon, the UVB is filtered out much more than the dangerous UVA.

You just need to be cautious about the length of your exposure. You only need enough exposure to have your skin turn the lightest shade of pink. This may only be a few minutes for some if you have a very pale skin.

Once you reach this point your body will not make any additional vitamin D and any additional exposure will only cause harm and damage to your skin.

Most people with fair skin will max out their vitamin D production in just 10-20 minutes, or, again, when your skin starts turning the lightest shade of pink. Some will need less, others more. The darker your skin, the longer exposure you will need to optimize your vitamin D production.

Unfortunately, the amount of sun reaching most of the U.S. is only sufficient to generate a healthy vitamin D response for far less than half the year -- and that's only if you take the time to go out in it.

So, for those times of the year when access to the proper amount of sun is not possible, you will want to consider an oral form of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Make sure, if you supplement, that you are using vitamin D3 and not the far inferior vitamin D2. As the latest research shows, D3 is approximately 87% more potent in raising and maintaining vitamin D concentrations and produces 2- to 3-fold greater storage of vitamin D than does D2. Another option is to use a safe tanning bed, paying careful attention to not getting burned
