How Old Is Your Heart?

A study from Public Health England found that one in 10 men over the age of 50 have a heart that is 10 years older than their actual age. In the U.S., one in three deaths is attributed to cardiovascular disease. Every 40 seconds, one American dies as a result of cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease claims more lives than all forms of cancer and chronic lower respiratory disease combined. The unfortunate part is that cardiovascular disease can be prevented by adhering to a healthy lifestyle, yet many Americans are still falling victim to heart disease. In response to the alarming number … Continue reading

Puerto Rican Catastrophe

Puerto Rico, You lovely island, Island of tropical breezes….             — West Side Story Welcome to America’s first experiment in the World Made By Hand lifestyle. Where else is it going? Watch closely. Ricardo Ramos, the director of the beleaguered, government-owned Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, told CNN Thursday that the island’s power infrastructure had been basically “destroyed” and will take months to come back “Basically destroyed.” That’s about as basic as it gets civilization-wise. Residents, Mr. Ramos said, would need to change the way they cook and cool off. For entertainment, old-school would be the best … Continue reading

Is Your Shampoo Making You Sick?

By Dr. Mercola You may be mistakenly comforted by the perceived oversight by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) over chemicals used in the manufacture of everyday products. For instance, the FDA prohibits the use of mercury, chloroform and nine other substances in your personal care products. However, once you know the European Union (EU) prohibits the use of more than 1,300 chemicals in their personal care products, you may not feel as protected — and you would be right. The number of chemicals restricted by the FDA is even more ridiculous when you consider there are over 84,000 different chemicals in … Continue reading

I Got Snarnled in the Massive Equifax Crime

There has been a lot in the news lately about a huge security breach that happened at credit reporting agency Equifax.  In fact, the odds are good your identity has been compromised since there were 143 million people affected.  So what should you do to give yourself the best chance of protection? What Happened? The breach started in mid-May of this year and lasted through July.  Of course, we consumers did not find out about it until this month, which to me is criminal, but I digress.  The hackers got names, addresses, Social Security numbers, and in certain cases, driver’s license numbers.  Scarier is that … Continue reading

The Worst Airports in the US

New York City‘s LaGuardia Airport has been ranked the worst large airport in the United States, according to a new survey. The notoriously unpopular facility, which is located in Queens, came in last among 21 airports in its category. Even more surprising is that LaGuardia came in last despite this year having an all-time high traveler satisfaction rating. The ranking was conducted by JD Power and asked about customer experiences. New York’s other major airport also scored noticeably low – it was ranked fourth worst among the country’s mega airports. Among those that also received a poor score were Newark Liberty International … Continue reading

A Blast Heard 1,200 Miles Away

It has been over 200 years since Mount Tambora in Indonesia erupted violently, resulting in death and disorder on a global scale. According to The Guinness Book of World Records it is the deadliest volcano in history. Here MailOnline Travel reveals the horrifying – but fascinating – history of the blast and how tourists today can take a peek at its incredible crater. Mount Tambora is an active stratovolcano – meaning it is made up of layers of ash and lava – on the island of Sumbawa in Indonesia, once known as the Dutch East Indies. Its eruption in 1815 killed around … Continue reading

Alzheimer’s Disease

No, the substance of this report doesn’t emanate from Harvard Medical School and is being ignored and will predictably be dismissed by uninformed physicians whose livelihood is threatened by such a discovery. Denial and ridicule is the first phase of any scientific discovery, followed strong opposition and finally self-evident acceptance.  This discovery hasn’t even reached the first stage as it goes ignored. The acronym for the National Institutes of Health — NIH – more accurately means: “not invented here.”  The covert mission of the NIH is to block any remedy outside of synthetic molecules from gaining FDA approval. News of … Continue reading

Are Chickenhawks Afraid of Ron and Lew?

Buried deep inside the just-passed defense budget is a small amendment, which could lead to a ban on broadcasting RT in America. The architects of the provision, Senators Graham and McCain, may recall that in their youth such practices formed what was known as the ‘Iron Curtain’. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the fiscal year 2018, which was passed by the US Senate earlier this week, is stuffed with provisions that have little to do with US national defense. This is a tactic that US lawmakers have traditionally used to ‘piggy-back’ legislation which would have little hope of adoption as … Continue reading

How the US Became a Warmonger Police State

Professor David Ray Griffin is a tenacious person. He has written a number of carefully researched books that demonstrate the extraordinary shortcomings in the official account of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon and the subsequent anthrax attack. He has provided the mountains of evidence completely ignored by the US government’s account and the presstitute media. In his recently published latest book, Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World , Professor Griffin demonstrates how 9/11 was used by the Zionist Neoconservatives, the Cheney/Bush regime, and the military/security complex with the complicity of Congress and the … Continue reading

Genghis Trump

NEW YORK – Not since Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev banged his fists and waved his shoe at the UN in 1960 has a world leader made such a spectacle of himself as President Donald Trump did this past week at the world organization. Trump vowed to ‘totally destroy’ North Korea, a nation of 25 million, if it dared threaten the US or its allies.   To do so, the US would have to use numerous nuclear weapons. The president’s Genghis Khan behavior seemed to take no account that a US nuclear strike against North Korea would cause huge destruction to neighboring … Continue reading

Everything You Were Taught About It the Civil War Is Wrong

Review by Dutch Michael Gilson: All stories have two sides, and The War for Southern Independence is no exception. This volume by Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook presents the Southern view. I was riveted as I was reading each page. This volume should be required reading throughout the country. Colonel Seabrook cuts his way through Yankee myths and fabrications with expert skill (evidence of his many years of writing on Southern history). This volume is well researched and gives much food for thought and cause for reflection. Finally a work that sets the record straight on the War for Sothern Independence and … Continue reading

Gov’t Crackdown Backfires

Spain will deploy police reinforcements to the northeastern region of Catalonia to maintain order and take action if a referendum on independence pledged by the Catalan government but deemed illegal by Spain should take place, officials said Friday. AP reports that an Interior Ministry statement said the extra agents would provide backing for the Catalan regional police who are also under orders to prevent the staging of the referendum. But protests continue to grow and Rajoy’s actions only seem to solidify opposition… “I feel the way people used to feel during Franco regime. Nothing less. Because Francoism is still alive,” said protester Josep Selva, referring to … Continue reading
