Cell phones and privacy protection

November 30, 2008

Cell phones and privacy protection

Indianapolis – After 13 Investigates aired its report “Tapping your cell phone,” viewers wrote in with questions.

The latest spy technology for cell phones is easy to find on the internet. 13 Investigates bought some spy software and, with the permission of a WTHR producer, downloaded it onto her cell phone.

What happened next is pretty spooky. I was able to listen in to her phone conversations, read her text messages, and no matter where she went with her cell phone, I got constant satellite updates on her location. I could literally track her movements anywhere she went.

Right after our investigation aired, emails started pouring in with lots of questions and concerns like this one from Bridget. She writes, “If I have the cell phone spyware on my cell phone, how would I find that out? How do I get rid of it?”

Richard Mislan is a cyber forensics specialist at Purdue University, and he’s pulled lots of hidden information off of cell phones. But he says even for a cyber detective, spy software is almost impossible to detect.

“We can get the phone and look at it and it’s not there so it’s hidden,” he said.

You can look for subtle signs yourself. For example, if your phone lights up for no apparent reason, or if it feels warm to the touch when you’re not using it, that could mean the phone is actually in use and being tapped.

As far as how you get rid of spy software, you don’t. You need a secret pass code to deactivate the program. If you don’t have it, you’re out of luck. At that point, you need a new phone.

Mandy sent this question: To tap your phone, “Is all a person needs is your cell phone number or does the person actually need your cell phone?”

The software used by 13 Investigates for our demonstration did require that we have physical possession of the cell phone. It took about ten minutes to download the spy program. But someone can tap your phone without ever laying hands on it, according to private investigator Tim Wilcox.

“There’s more sophisticated devices where you can do it remotely where you don’t have to have possession of the phone to do it,” said Wilcox.

Here’s a question from Robert. He says, “I have a friend that suspects her cell phone has been tapped. Her phone often has strange background noises when in use. How can she find out if her phone is tapped?”

In that situation, get ready to play detective. Tim Wilcox says it’s time for something called disinformation.

“The person who suspects their cell phone is bugged would carry on a conversation they’ve already pre-scripted with somebody else that has information so sensational, it would drive the third party, the bad guy, crazy and then they would make some contact or say something or get back to them so they’d know they third party is actually monitoring them,” said Wilcox.

The last question comes from Laurie who said, “Tell me which software you purchased that actually worked. My girlfriend has purchased two and they don’t seem to be working for her.”

Sorry, Laurie. We’re not telling you because anyone who wants spy software is probably up to no good.

“A lot of this is totally illegal,” said Mislan.

Rick Mislan says if you spy on someone’s cell phone without their permission, you can go to jail. “You’re giving up all of your privacy by someone tapping into your phone so this is totally illegal.”

One more thing you should know, the fancier your phone, the more you may be at risk. Some spy software won’t work on basic cell phones. But if you have a phone that connects you to the internet, it’s much easier to tap into.

IBM Predicts Talking Web, Solar-Powered Cell Phones, More

November 29, 2008

IBM Predicts Talking Web, Solar-Powered Cell Phones, More
A talking Web, solar technology embedded in windows and cell phones, and the end of forgetting will all come in the next five years, IBM predicts in its third annual Next Five in Five list.
Here, IBM detailed innovations that could change our lives in the next half-decade.
The other predictions: We will all have digital shopping assistants and, separately, “crystal balls” to predict our future health.

“The Next Five in Five is based on market and societal trends expected to transform our lives, as well as emerging technologies from IBM’s Labs around the world that can make these innovations possible,” IBM says.
Here’s a look at IBM’s five predictions announced this week:

1. Solar power will be built into asphalt sidewalks, driveways, siding, paint, rooftops and windows. New thin-film solar cells will be cost-effective and incredibly thin, allowing them to be applied just about anywhere.

“Until now, the materials and the process of producing solar cells to convert into solar energy have been too costly for widespread adoption,” IBM says. “These new thin-film solar cells can be ‘printed’ and arranged on a flexible backing, suitable for not only the tops but also the sides of buildings, tinted windows, cell phones, notebook computers, cars and even clothing.”

2. You will have a crystal ball for your health — not a real crystal ball, but sophisticated analyses of your own DNA will tell you what types of health risks you face in your lifetime and the specific steps you can take to prevent them. DNA analyses will cost less than $200 (about Rs. 9000), IBM says, making them affordable for many. In addition to predicting health risks, IBM says the technology will tell us what we’re not at risk for, perhaps enabling certain people to enjoy foods like French fries and potato chips without guilt. Besides personal health profiles, DNA mapping will help drug companies design new, more effective medicine.

“Ever since scientists discovered how to map the entire human genome, it has opened new doors in helping to unlock the secrets our genes hold to predicting health traits and conditions we may be predisposed to,” IBM says.

3. “You will talk to the Web . . . and the Web will talk back.” Someday soon you will surf the Internet using just your voice, a development that will make the Web more widely accessible worldwide, particularly for those who cannot read or write.

“In places like India, where the spoken word is more prominent than the written word in education, government and culture, ‘talking’ to the Web is leapfrogging all other interfaces, and the mobile phone is outpacing the PC,” IBM says. “Imagine being within a phone call’s reach from the ability to post, scan and respond to e-mails and instant messages — without typing. You will be able to sort through the Web verbally to find what you are looking for and have the information read back to you — as if you are having a conversation with the Web.”

4. Digital technology will enhance your in-store shopping experience, with “digital shopping assistants” inside fitting rooms, touchscreen and voice-activated kiosks that will help you choose clothing items to complement or replace what you’ve already chosen. Store employees will be automatically notified and bring you the items you’ve requested. With rapidly improving mobile technology, shoppers will also read product ratings from other consumers, download coupons and take photos of themselves to send to friends and family and instantly get their opinions.

5. “Forgetting will become a distant memory,” IBM says in its final prediction. Remembering all the little things you forget will become easier because everyday details will be recorded, analyzed and “provided at the appropriate time and place by both portable and stationary smart appliances.” IBM predicts that microphones and video cameras will record everyday activities and conversations, whether those conversations happen with family members or doctors. GPS-enabled smartphones can then remind us, for example, to pick up groceries or prescriptions if we pass by the supermarket or pharmacy.

IBM makes no mention of laws that in some states forbid recording of conversations without the consent of all parties, so we’ll have to see how the legality of this one plays out.

6 Ways to Save More Than $12,000 on Taxes in 2009 A look at the new renewable energy and energy efficient incentives for individuals

6 Ways to Save More Than $12,000 on Taxes in 2009
A look at the new renewable energy and energy efficient incentives for individuals

By Dan Shapley

TheDailyGreen.com

It’s been widely noted that the passage of the financial bailout bill included $150 billion in additional “sweeteners” to gain passage in the House of Representatives. It’s true that only in Washington could the solution to an overly expensive bill be an even more expensive bill, but it’s also true that one of the provisions – energy efficiency and renewable energy tax credits – was among the important sweeteners to win passage.

The tax bill is filled with important incentives that will keep the solar and wind power industries competitive, and that means they should continue to innovate, producing more power at ever more affordable prices. That’s critical for the U.S., and the world, as we confront the challenge of global warming.

But what about homeowners and other regular taxpayers? There are several important provisions anyone can take advantage of:

1. $500 for energy efficiency
If you can, wait until Jan. 1 to install new insulation, energy-efficient windows or an energy-efficient furnace, boiler or air conditioner.

– Drive Smart: 10 Ways to Save Gas and Money
– Energy costs killing you? Conduct a home energy audit
– Which Green Upgrades Are Worth the Extra Expense?

A tax credit of up to $500 that expired in 2007 has been renewed for 2009. It covers up to 10% of the cost of a range of projects that meet certain specifications. Do $5,000 worth of qualifying work, and you not only get a $500 rebate, but also savings on energy bills for years to come.

Why wait? Of course, the heating season begins before Jan. 1, giving homeowners facing a northern winter reason to invest now – but because Congress let the tax credit lapse, work done in 2008 doesn’t qualify.

Also note these important limits, which cap the amount you can claim for any particular project:
– Windows: $200
– Exterior doors, roofing or insulation: $500
– Most heating, ventilation and air-conditioning improvements: $300
– Furnaces or hot water heaters: $150

Remember, your overall tax credit is capped at $500, so if you install $5,000 worth of exterior doors and $2,000 worth of new windows, for a total of $7,000, you can still only claim $500 – even though 10 percent of all qualifying work equals $700. Also, the tax credit applies only to equipment, not labor.

Find more information at the Alliance to Save Energy or Energy Star or Department of Energy Web sites. Note that much of this information reflects the tax incentives in place in 2006 and 2007; for the most part, the 2009 tax credits are identical, but updated criteria for which products qualify, for instance, will be published soon.

Do Cell Phones Cause Cancer? Scientific American Answers
Nov. 24, 2008, 4:55 pm

News

The answer is, nobody really knows. Caution has been advised by some experts.

Scientific American

“There is plenty of anecdotal evidence out there claiming a link between cell phone use and cancer: Keith Black, chairman of neurosurgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, says that the brain cancer (malignant glioma) that killed O. J. Simpson’s attorney, Johnnie Cochran, was the result of frequent cell phone use, based on the fact that the tumor developed on the side of the head against which he held his phone. And in May, a week after Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy was diagnosed with a glioma, The EMR Policy Institute, a Marshfield, Vt.–based nonprofit organization that supports research on the effects of electromagnetic radiation, released a statement linking his tumor to heavy cell phone use. But the NCI maintains that there is no definitive evidence that cell phones increase cancer risk.

“In other words, the verdict is still out. “We can’t rule out the possibility of risk,” Nottingham’s Challis says. “There hadn’t been as much work in this area as is now demanded.”

The Healing Power of Sunlight and Vitamin D: an exclusive interview with Dr. Michael Holick
Dr. Michael Holick is the world’s foremost authority on vitamin D and the healing power of natural sunlight. He’s the author of The UV Advantage, and in this interview, Dr. Holick reveals fascinating facts on how vitamin D is created and used in the human body to ward off chronic diseases like cancer, osteoporosis, mental disorders and more. This is one of the most eye-opening interviews you’ll ever read on health.

Here’s some of what you’ll find inside:

* Why and how your body manufactures vitamin D.
* How your body automatically regulates proper levels of vitamin D, even with excessive sunlight exposure.
* Why vitamin D deficiencies are now epidemic in the American population (and what it means to their health).
* How vitamin D deficiencies cause prostate cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, osteoporosis, rickets and other diseases.
* The true cause of asthma and why antihistamines only conceal the symptoms of the disease rather than treating its cause.
* Why African Americans and Hispanics are especially susceptible to vitamin D deficiencies due to skin pigmentation.
* Why the sunscreen industry doesn’t want you to read this information and has tried to discredit Dr. Holick.
* Why milk and orange juice are poor sources for vitamin D. Revealed: a much better nutritional supplement that provides a vitamin D boost!

Microwave Oven Radiation Destroys Food!

November 24, 2008

Microwave Oven Radiation Destroys Food!
Microwave oven radiation doesn’t cook your food-it destroys it!

This excerpt from Tom Valentine’s Search For Health describes just what happens to food when it gets zapped in a microwave oven.

“…The same violent friction and athermic deformations that can occur in our bodies when we are subjected to radar or microwaves happens to the molecules in the food cooked in a microwave oven. In fact, when anyone microwaves food the oven exerts a power input of about 1000 watts or more. This radiation results in destruction and deformation of molecules of food and in the formation of new compounds(called radiolytic compounds) unknown to man and nature. Today’s established science and technology argues forcefully that microwaved food, an irradiated foods, do not have any significantly high “radiolytic compounds” than do broiled, baked or other conventionally cooked foods-but microwaving does produce more of these critters. Curiously, neither established science nor our ever protective government has conducted any tests of the effects of eating the various kinds of cooked foods on the blood of eaters…something is amiss and larger studies should be funded.”

While we don’t recommend using a microwave oven to cook your food, if you do have one-or your office or roommate uses one- we recommend using a Star 3-Hole to neutralize the microwave radiation that it emits.

Bush signs bill to extend jobless benefits
WASHINGTON (CNN) — President Bush on Friday morning signed a measure to extend unemployment benefits by at least seven weeks in every state, White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said.
The Senate passed a bill Thursday that extends unemployment benefits.

The Senate passed a bill Thursday that extends unemployment benefits.

The Senate on Thursday overwhelmingly approved the bill, which also calls for benefits to be extended by 13 weeks in states with an unemployment rate of at least 6 percent.

The bill was approved by the House in October.

Perino said in a statement that Bush will sign the legislation “because of the tight job market.”

In September, Bush threatened to veto a broader stimulus bill that included the extension of jobless benefits.

In most states, unemployment benefits are paid for a maximum of 26 weeks.

The Senate vote came on the same day the U.S. Department of Labor reported that the number of people filing for unemployment insurance had reached a 16-year high.

* CNNMoney: Auto bailout: Not now, maybe later
* New Congress members meet big-money donors

Initial filings for state jobless benefits increased by 27,000 to 542,000 for the week ended November 15. This marks the third time since 1992 that initial claims have exceeded 500,000.

Claims reached the highest total since the week ending July 25, 1992, when 564,000 initial claims were filed.

Bob Brusca, an economist at FAO Economics, said the week’s sharp uptick in claims and the fact that claims have held above 500,000 indicate that the figures are in worse shape than those of the most recent recessions of 1991 and 2001.

“The level itself is very disturbing,” he said. “I would guess that the job market will get worse.”

Economists surveyed by Briefing.com expected 503,000 claims. Last year, the figure stood at 333,000.

The number of people continuing to collect benefits for one week or more neared a 26-year high. The number surged by 109,000 to 4,012,000 for the week ended November 8, the most recent data available. The last time the figure was this high was for the week of December 12, 1982, when it reached 4,381,000.

The four-week moving average of unemployment claims, used to smooth fluctuations in the data, increased by 15,750 to 506,500 from 490,750 the week before. During the past two recessions, the four-week moving average has held above 400,000. This is the 18th week the four-week moving average has exceeded that benchmark.

U.S. job losses have been mounting for months. This month, the Department of Labor reported that the economy lost 240,000 jobs in October, bringing the total number of jobs shed in 2008 to nearly 1.2 million. The unemployment rate rose to 6.5 percent, a 14-year high, last month.

Companies reporting layoffs in the past week include Citigroup, which slashed 20 percent of its work force, or 50,000 jobs, the biggest cut by a corporation in 15 years. Financial services firm Fidelity Investments announced that it will cut 1,700 jobs, and Sun Microsystems reported that it would lay off 6,000 people, or 18 percent of its work force.

Breast Cancer Industry A Scam? Support Education, Not Medication

November 22, 2008

Breast Cancer Industry A Scam? Support Education, Not Medication
This is the second annual publication of NaturalNews’s “Education, Not Medication” program designed to teach women the truth about how to prevent and even cure breast cancer. This disease is 90 percent preventable, mostly using completely free therapies. The breast cancer industry does not want women to be made aware of these free therapies because most of the better-known non-profits in the area of breast cancer are, themselves, dependant on revenues from the companies that profit from the disease.

The breast cancer industry is now run by corporations that profit from women who receive breast cancer treatments. With nearly all breast cancer nonprofits being subjugated by drug companies, the FDA censoring alternative cancer solutions, and the mainstream media wildly exaggerating the benefits of near-useless cancer drugs like Herceptin, there’s hardly a message heard about breast cancer today that doesn’t have a profit motive behind it.

“Breast cancer has been transformed into a market-driven industry. It has become more about making money for corporate sponsors than funding innovative ways to treat breast cancer.” – Health Studies researcher Samantha King, author of Pink Ribbons Inc.

The emphasis on breast cancer “screening,” and the circus of holding breast cancer awareness months is, of course, all about recruiting more women into a system of treatment that generates profits for drug companies. Using fear-based tactics of recruitment (like telling women, “You’ll die in six months if you don’t undergo chemotherapy…”), the breast cancer industry manages to corral women of all races and ages into treatments that actually harm far more women than they help. New research, for example, shows that certain classes of chemotherapy drugs are so dangerous to human health that they cause heart failure in many women who use them. The drugs are called anthracyclines, and the research was published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (October, 2007).

Chemotherapy is so dangerous to the heart, liver, kidneys and brain that the very act of screening for cancer tumors with mammography machines ultimately causes harm to most patients. Find that hard to believe? Researchers at the Nordic Cochrane Center in Denmark studied 500,000 women to determine the results of breast cancer screening programs. They found that for every one woman helped by breast cancer screening, ten were harmed through false diagnosis or unnecessary treatments that devastated their health.

“What seems like good and obvious advice in everyday life is not always scientifically or medically sound”, said Peter Gotzsche, MD, director of the center. “So we might say there is a benefit of one but a harm of 10 from screening for breast cancer.” You can read more about that story at http://www.NaturalNews.com/020829.html

In other words, breast cancer screening is surprisingly harmful to women. That’s partly because the procedure itself irradiates the breast tissue and actually causes cancer, but also because practically any screening result producing a questionable blur on the final image may result in a woman being manipulated through fear into undergoing aggressive, toxic cancer treatments even when they never had breast cancer in the first place. (False positives are extremely common in breast cancer screening, and in some cases, the machinery is incorrectly calibrated and doesn’t even meet radiology standards.)

Preventing prevention
And yet breast cancer screening is the only form of “prevention” offered by the cancer industry. But it isn’t prevention, it’s detection. Breast cancer screening does nothing to educate women how to really prevent breast cancer, nor does it teach women how to change their diets and lifestyles so that breast cancer never develops in the first place. In fact, the strategy of the cancer industry today can be best described as waiting for women to get cancer, then treating it with toxic drugs that just happen to generate huge profits for pharmaceutical companies.

While tens of millions of women are developing undetectable, early-stage breast cancer right now, the cancer industry does nothing. They will not tell these women how to halt the growth of cancer tumors; they will only wait until the cancer becomes large enough to see on a screening test, and then they will scare the women to death with harmful, authoritative medical demands and toss them into chemotherapy — a treatment that causes permanent, irreversible harm to the brain, heart, liver, kidneys and other organs.

Yet even the World Health Organization admits that 70 percent of all cancers can be prevented through simple changes in food and lifestyle. That number is probably conservative, though. My own opinion is that 90 percent of all cancers can be prevented through simple food and lifestyle changes. Yet no one in the cancer industry seems interested in teaching any of these strategies to women. In the cancer industry, there is no incentive to teach women how to avoid breast cancer, because to do so would eliminate a future customer! Billions of dollars in revenue are at stake here, and the cancer industry is banking on the continuation of this disease among the population.

That’s why I started the Education Not Medication program. It is a humble effort to teach women how to prevent their own breast cancer through scientifically-supported natural health strategies that are easy to understand and simple to follow. They include things like eating more broccoli and garlic, getting more natural sunlight on your skin (to generate the anti-cancer nutrient Vitamin D, which has recently been shown to prevent an astonishing 77 percent of ALL cancers!) and avoiding cancer-causing chemicals in manufactured foods (such as sodium nitrite, found in bacon, sausage and virtually all packaged meats). A more detailed list is offered below.

The cancer industry depends on more cancer
The cancer industry remains silent about these cancer prevention solutions. Ever wonder why? It’s because the livelihood of the industry depends on more cancer! If cancer rates plummeted by 70 percent or more, the industry would be devastated. The incomes, egos and power positions of cancer industry operators depend entirely on the continued spread of cancer among the population.

Ever notice that cancer centers are not called, “Anti-Cancer Centers?” You see them in virtually every city and state across the country: The Washington Cancer Center, or the San Francisco Cancer Center. Here in Arizona, we have a massive, new building being constructed, and it’s named the Arizona Cancer Center. These are all monuments to cancer, and they are usually for-profit businesses constructed for the purpose of making money from a woman’s disease. They turn cancer into profit, and they depend on the continuation of cancer to stay in business.

That’s why there’s no real effort underway to teach women how to prevent breast cancer. There’s no program in place to teach women about the anti-cancer effects of sunlight and vitamin D (in fact, cancer industry groups like the American Cancer Society run public service ads warning people about sunlight!), there’s no honest effort to teach women about the natural anti-cancer medicine founds in certain foods, and no one is telling women the truth about the cancer-causing chemicals in perfumes, laundry detergent, cosmetics and personal care products. Recent research shows that even air fresheners are contaminated with phthalates, and new details about cancer-causing chemicals in household products seem to emerge every week.

But when it comes to preventing cancer, the cancer industry is silent. Why should they say anything, anyway? If they teach women how to prevent breast cancer, they lose customers. Besides, the scheme they’re running right now is working brilliantly. They maximize revenues and profits by preventing prevention and waiting for women to get cancer, then treating them with high-profit pharmaceuticals, radiation and surgical procedures. They have the easiest business model in the world: All they have to do is keep their mouths shut about what causes cancer, and wait for new customers to fill the cancer centers. And to help them out, corporations, media organizations and volunteers (many are women!) actually help them raise more money!

Women raising money for cancer industry non-profit groups makes about as much sense as Jews raising money for Hitler. The cancer industry is exploiting these women, using their bodies to generate profits!

It’s time to teach genuine cancer prevention to women
The cancer industry has been getting away with this scam for years, but I say enough is enough. It’s time to declare, “The Emperor has no clothes!” and that the best way to help protect the lives of women is to teach them how to avoid breast cancer rather than waiting for them to get it.

And doing so is surprisingly simple. All you have to do is raise awareness about the things that cause breast cancer vs. the things that prevent breast cancer. This can be done through public service announcements, information handouts, or even internet campaigns like this one.

I also suggest that all these cancer treatment centers donate 100 percent of their profits to cancer prevention campaigns. It’s wrong to profit from a woman’s cancer, is it not? If these businesses really cared about stopping cancer, they’d refuse to profit from the disease and, instead, use the money to help stop cancer in future generations of women (and men, for that matter).

What an idea, huh? That these ultra-wealthy non-profits and billion-dollar corporations might spend some money on teaching women how to prevent cancer…

If it ever really happens, of course, it will only be as a cover-your-ass reaction to public awareness about the corporatization of the breast cancer industry. As word spreads, these non-profits will have to do something to save their reputation, so they’ll start running tiny “prevention” campaigns to save face. But underneath the facade, make no mistake: cancer is big, big business, and the cancer industry is driven by profiting from a woman’s body, not protecting it from cancer.

“[The cancer industry is] a market-driven industry that feeds off breast cancer survivors.” – Health Studies researcher Samantha King, author of Pink Ribbons Inc.

The real answers to breast cancer prevention
Here, for the benefit of women everywhere, is a partial list of the things that cause cancer and things that don’t. You’re not going to find full descriptions and citations here, as that would require an entire book all by itself, but this is a very useful reference list that tells the truth about what causes or prevents cancer in the human body.

18 things that CAUSE cancer: (in no particular order)

* Smoking cigarettes
* Mammography radiation – see articles on mammograms
* Chemotherapy and radiation
* Perfumes and fragrance products
* Cosmetics and personal care products – see articles on personal care products
* Home cleaning products, including laundry detergent, dryer sheets, etc.
* Drinking non-organic milk or eating non-organic dairy products
* Hydrogenated oils and trans fatty acids – See Poison In the Food or articles on hydrogenated oils
* Plastic food containers – includes plastic lining inside food cans
* Sodium nitrite – found in most processed meats, see articles on sodium nitrite
* Pesticides, PCBs, chlorine and other chemicals
* Acrylamides (formed during high-heat food processing such as frying)
* Watching television / lack of exercise
* Severe emotional distress or relationship stress
* Refined sugars / refined grains
* Dry cleaning chemicals
* Hair color chemicals
* Nail polish remover

22 things that PREVENT cancer:

* Vitamin D and sunshine – see the Healing Power of Sunlight and Vitamin D
* Anti-cancer foods – see articles about anti-cancer foods
* Medicinal mushrooms – reishi, shiitake, agaricus blazei, etc. See http://www.MushroomScience.com or http://www.DragonHerbs.com
* Green tea – see articles about green tea
* Broccoli and cruciferous vegetables – see articles about broccoli
* Lycopene and tomatoes
* Infra-red saunas and sweat lodges – because sweating expels toxins
* Chlorella – see articles on chlorella, or check out a recommended chlorella product: Rejuvenate! From IntegratedHealth.com (product to be launched soon)
* Pomegranate seeds – see artiles on pomegranate or http://www.ats.org/news.php?id=32
* Omega-3 oils / chia seeds – available from GoodCauseWellness.com
* Rainforest herbs – There are many anti-cancer rainforest herbs, including graviola and Cat’s Claw (Una de Gato). Recommended sources is Terry Pezzi of the high-integrity Amazon Herb Company (also helping to preserve the Amazon rainforest) – Another great source of rainforest herbs is Rain Tree with Leslie Taylor
* Juice detoxification – Read books by Dr. Gabriel Cousens or visit his retreat in Southern Arizona
* Acupuncture – helps move blood and chi (body’s energy)
* Sprouts – ALL sprouts are anti-cancer. Best sprouting machine is the EasyGreen Automatic Sprouter (use any search engine to find resellers)
* Red clover – Helps cleanse the blood. Find from any supplement maker.
* Deep breathing / oxygenation / stress reduction – Best product is called Stress Eraser (highly recommended)
* Yoga, Tai Chi or Pilates – These all boost lymph circulation
* Cacao – (real chocolate) – Good sources are NavitasNaturals.com or Superfoods.com
* Therapeutic massage – helps move lymph, boost circulation
* Mint – grow your own (the easiest plant to grow)
* Apricot pits / laetrile / vitamin B17 – View this World Without Cancer video featuring G. Edward Griffin
* Blackberries – Most berries contain some form of anti-cancer medicine

The cancer industry attacks nearly all genuine cancer solutions
After examining this list, it’s not difficult to notice something quite curious: The cancer industry promotes many things that cause cancer while attacking most things that prevent cancer. Naturopathic doctors who once prescribed laetrile for cancer patients, for example, have been run out of the country or arrested. Herbal product companies have been censored to such a degree that none dare tell the truth about the anti-cancer effects of their own products, and even broccoli growers and marketers are scared into remaining silent about the remarkable, scientifically-proven anti-cancer effects of broccoli.

In other words, if you want to know what the cancer industry supports or attacks, just check to see which list it’s on. If it’s on the list of things that prevent cancer, the cancer industry (including most of its doctors, oncologists, non-profits and government regulators) will be against it. If it’s on the list of things that cause cancer, they will likely promote it. The cancer industry, you see, isn’t interested in stopping cancer. It depends on the disease!

The exception to this is, of course, tobacco. That’s a substance that doctors once gladly promoted in magazine advertisements, claiming that smoking was good for your health and even improved your teeth! But today, the tobacco scam has long since been revealed, and even conventional medicine is now squarely against this substance that they once strongly promoted.

The American Medical Association, by the way, used to actually run ads for cigarettes in its flagship medical journal, JAMA. Doctors can always be bought off and made to promote whatever poison is making the most money this decade (these people have no shame). In the 1950’s, it was cigarettes. Today, it’s pharmaceuticals and chemotherapy. Different drugs, same scam. But money was always — and IS always — the bottom line for conventional medicine. Today, doctors promote chemotherapy, which is far more toxic than smoking!

Cell Phone Use Endangers Boneheads

November 21, 2008

Cell Phone Use Endangers Boneheads
he jury is still out on the relationship between cell phone use and brain tumors. But the American Association of Neurological Surgeons has issued a statement to remind people that cell phones present lots of other risks to your brain. Of course, we all know about yapping while driving. A Harvard study finds that 2,600 people die each year in accidents related to cell distraction and 12,000 more are injured. Canadian research shows that you’re four times more likely to be in an accident while on the phone.

But here are some other emergency room cases that show the dangers of talking or texting while on the move: Guy talking on cell phone on an escalator falls backward, lacerating his head, where his brain lives. Guy talking on cell phone walks into street sign, also lacerating his head. Guy texting while bicycling crashes into a tree and suffers head injury. Guy texting walks right into a telephone poll and knocks himself cold. Sir, back away from the phone. It could save your life. Or at least your dignity.
