Junk food restaurants don't want you to know what's in the stuff they sell you. Here's a clear example of just how true that is. McDonald's does a good job of, first, implying that one of their products is 100% meat, and then, if you decide that might not be true, kinda sorta letting you know that it isn't, but then making it more than a..
Rix and friend sing "The Placebo Song".
"The skeptics cry with one kneejerk ... It's rubbish and it doesn't work. Well, I wonder why they sneer and smirk, if it only is placebo?"
In delightful contrast to the self-righteousness of skeptics, these two ladies don't take themselves too seriously as they sing about how they're happy..
Pam Warhurst tells how she and her community decided to start a revolution by growing food in public spaces. They didn't consult. They didn't write reports. They didn't ask for permission. They just did it.
In just a short time, their town became a lush garden, full of food-growing plants. Almost everyone can be involved, and after..
One congressional member won't quit in the march to steal our rights. The natural health community stopped previous efforts to destroy access to supplements. Yet, Durbin has reintroduced his measure to put supplement companies out of business, leaving us prey to Big Pharma. Here's what you can do.
Since good soil takes effort and money to maintain, Agribusiness hasn't bothered. As a result, basics required for all life, including phosphorus, are now supplied by mining instead of soil. It's resulted in inferior food, but the situation is even worse. Phosphorus reserves are running low, leaving us to face starvation.
A study claiming that fish oil provides no benefit in heart disease is being hyped as the final word on the issue. But is it? No, it is not. In fact, the study is absurdly blatant pseudo science, with two errors so glaring it's hard to believe they were made. Why do the researchers do it? Why do they care so little about the truth and..
Turkeys are taking revenge for the horrendous treatment by Agribusiness. Most ground turkey tested by Consumer Reports was contaminated with drug-resistant bacteria. But if you want to solve the problem, you'll need to ignore their advice. There's no solution within a system that treats food as nothing but a commodity.
Salt reduction is a third rail of medicine. There is simply too much money to be made on blood pressure drugs, and Big Pharma must not be crossed. But the reality is that reducing salt intake provides no benefit for heart health. Nonetheless, the official stance doesn't change.
Organic food isn't cheap, and the real thing never will be. The concept of mass-produced organics is fraudulent. It runs counter to both the ethos & reality. They cannot be produced by Agribusiness-style farmers who keep producing the same crop year-on-year. As long as food is treated as a commodity, then we have degraded the basic..
One of the most frequent epithets tossed at people who make claims of alternative medicine is that it's just the placebo effect. But that is based on the myth that placebos can cure. The reality, as clearly documented by science, is that they don't. So the skeptics base their favorite claim on a myth, not reality, and most assuredly not..
The UK's Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) is trying to put alternative medicine practitioners out of business. They've started putting out letters to practitioners telling them, basically, that they can't say what they do on their websites. They can't say they treat anything. That's because the monopolistic powers of conventional..

In today's world, what are a girl's rights to have clean, hygienic toilets in school? In India, far too many girls don't have that right. Girls are dropping out of schools due to a lack of toilet facilities. Video, 10 minutes.
Permitting corporations to genetically modify, synthetically process and artificially preserve substances for you to ingest, and then calling it "food" insults our health and well-being. The claim that starving masses must be given cheap alternatives is a fabrication to let them trod upon our garden.
