Collapsing foodchain: Germany’s ecosystem is threatened as scientists discover a 75% decline in insects — is industrial agriculture to blame?
(Natural News) German researchers are now warning of a future “ecological Armageddon and a collapse of the food chain” after discovering a steep drop-off in flying insect populations. Over the last thirty years, scientists say insect numbers have declined by nearly 80 percent in Germany alone. Their studies of the rapidly dwindling insect populations within nature reserves have sparked fears that the entire ecosystem will collapse — and the food chain as we know it would fall, as well. Indeed, if the population of insects in protected areas has declined at such a disturbing pace, it’s hard to imagine how insects across the rest of the world have fared. At least one member of the research team believes that pesticides are driving down insect numbers, according to theDaily Mail. Caspar Hallmann from Radboud University, located in The Netherlands,…

Papaya leaf juice successfully used for anemia, viral infections and overall good blood health

Papaya leaf juice successfully used for anemia, viral infections and overall good blood health(NaturalHealth365) For thousands of years, herbal medicine extracted from herbs and plants (like papaya) has beena key pillar of Ayurvedic(Indian), Chinese, European and Native American medicine – not to mention a host of other traditional medicine systems. And while medicine as a field has evolved and many of these herbal remedies have gone mainstream – extracted, processed, packaged, patented and marketed as drugs – ‘alternative medicine’ is certainly still alive and well. One plant that has served as a popular source of herbal medicine over the centuries is theCaricapapaya. Different parts of the papaya plant have long been used as ingredients in folk medicine, including the fruit itself, the dried version of it, seeds, leaves, dried leaves, as well as the roots. These have all been used as treatment for a wide range of diseases, and now there appears to be another breakthrough. Is papaya …

Old fashioned baking soda found to be the most effective at removing pesticide residue

Fresh produce such as fruits and vegetables may require more than the traditional under-the-faucet rinsing as toxic pesticides may linger. However, a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistryhas revealed that the humble baking soda might just be the perfect solution to rid the produce of harmful pesticides. A team of researchers at the University of Massachusetts has carried out a study on gala apples in order to assess baking soda’s efficacy in cleaning the fruits.
As part of the study, the research team has applied two common pesticides thiabendazole and phosmet to organic gala apples. Thiabendazole is a fungicide that has been previously noted for its capacity to penetrate apple peels. Phosmet is a popular insecticide, the experts say. The scientists have then washed the contaminated apples with three different liquids, which include: tap water, a one percent baking soda/water solution, and a commercial bleach solution approved by the United States Environmen…

India tosses out Gates Foundation due to conflicts of interest with Big Pharma In the U.S., many look to him as a benevolent humanitarian simply trying to save the world from communicable disease. But in India, billionaire software guru Bill Gates has basically been told to get the hell out the country now that he and his wife Melinda’s infamous foundation has been exposed as nothing more than avaccine-pushing frauddirectly tied to Big Pharma. India’s National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) announced recently that it is officially cutting ties with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. This announcement comes after it was shown that so-called vaccine “campaigns” conducted on tens of thousands of young girls throughout India back in 2009-2010 that were meant to help protect them from cervical cancer were actuallycloaked vaccinetrialsinvolving two highly controversial vaccines known to injure and kill. The vaccines in question are Cervarix by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) …

Vitamin C deficient stem cells more likely to turn into leukemia

Vitamin C deficient stem cells more likely to turn into leukemia(NaturalHealth365) According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 23,564 people lost their lives to leukemia in 2014 alone. The most common form of cancer among children and teens, leukemia also strikes adults – especially as they age. Unfortunately, to make matters worse, none of these patients probably heard about how vitamin C could help in the healing process. For example,new researchshows thatinsufficient levels of vitamin C can make you more susceptible to leukemia. The good news: boosting your dietary intake of the nutrient can help prevent it. Plus, this type of strategy offers no (negative) side effects and the cost is minimal. How vitamin C “puts the brakes on” leukemia In a study conducted at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and published in the peer-reviewed scientific journalNature, researchers found that vitamin C helped to slow the development of leukemia by re-activa…
