Study Shows Stevia Kills Lyme Disease Pathogen Better Than Antibiotics

By Sayer Ji

Lyme disease is exceedingly difficult to treat, due to its well-known shape-shifting (pleomorphic) abilities, with conventional antibiotics often failing to produce a long-term cure. Could the commonly used natural plant Stevia provide a safer, and more effective means to combat this increasingly prevalent infection? Continue reading

German Supreme Court Upholds Biologist’s Claim that Measles Virus Does Not Exist (So Why the MMR Vaccine?)

Could There Be Something Wrong with the Germ Theory?

by Paul Fassa
Health Impact News

Our modern medicine’s paradigm is based mostly on the germ theory of microbes invading our bodies and causing disease, thus creating the need for a war against microbes to eliminate them all and conquer all diseases. Fear is the motivation for creating the weapons of antibiotics, antivirals, and vaccines befitting this concept, but our modern populations are sicker than ever.

Are the weapons creating chronic debilitating diseases in exchange for acute illnesses considered infectious that most manage to get over with a renewed resilience to the dreaded pathogenic microbes blamed for all illness? Are we actually destroying our immune systems with our war on microbes? Continue reading

Antibiotics Linked to Heart Attacks

by: Lori Alton

(NaturalHealth365) Which is more shocking, the revelation that a popular class of antibiotics has been linked to life-threatening complications, or the fact that drug companies knew about these risks, but covered them up? Unfortunately, when profits come above patient welfare, neither reality comes as a surprise. (especially when you consider the ‘untested’ drugs on the market)

Fluoroquinolone antibiotics [Cipro, Levaquin, Floxin, Ocuflox, Avelox, Vitgamox] are Continue reading

Antibiotic Resistance Will Kill 300 Million People by 2050

By Dr. Mercola

Three problems with the US food supply that is making food a source of disease rather than optimal health include: the way our food is raised; the way it’s processed; and the routine use of hazardous drugs and chemicals.

The United States is one of the few countries in the world that produces and processes food in a way that defies both science and common sense.

As noted in the featured TED lecture, 86 percent of every dollar you spend at the grocery store goes toward paying for processing and marketing of the food. A mere 14 percent goes to the farmer that actually grows the food ingredients in question.

This alone should tell you that that inexpensive processed food item you buy is hardly a bargain. Not only are you getting very little real food, as there are so many fillers and additives tossed in, you’re also getting very little in terms of healthy nutrition.

This is important, as your body is not designed to process and thrive on a base of disease causing ingredients like high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated vegetable oil.

Three Sources of Antibiotics That Threaten Human Health

By Dr. Mercola

Antibiotic resistance is a serious threat facing all of us today, and there’s plenty of blame to go around. Overall, modern science, especially veterinary medicine, has done a miserable job when it comes to predicting the outcome of its actions. According to Dr. Cyril Gay,1 the senior national program leader at the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agricultural Research Service:

“The loss of antibiotics due to antimicrobial resistance is potentially one of the most important challenges the medical and animal-health communities will face in the 21st century.”

Antibiotic resistance has also been declared “an increasingly serious threat to global public health that requires action across all government sectors and society” by the World Health Organization (WHO).2 Continue reading

Do Antibiotics Contribute to Mercury Poisoning?

Posted By ANH-USA 

Scientists are no longer even sure how antibiotics work.  

According to Dr. David Williams, antibiotics may prevent the body from excreting mercury, which is found in fish and in many vaccines. This was documented in a study  by Boyd Haley, PhD, from the University of Connecticut Medical Center. Mercury is highly toxic. In animals studies, researchers can mimic the exact same physiological changes to the brain along with the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease by simply adding mercury to the system.

Bitter Pill: The Dangerous Side Effects of Fluoridated Antibiotics

By Dr. Mercola

Fluoroquinolones are among the most dangerous drugs on the market and should be avoided unless your life depends on it. Despite their dangers, they’re the most commonly prescribed class of antibiotics in the United States… In 2010, Bayer’s top two fluoroquinolones (Cipro and Avalox) brought in $1 billion in sales.

That same year, Johnson & Johnson sold $1.3 billion-worth of its drug, Levaquin. All antibiotics carry a risk of side effects, but fluoroquinolones are in a class by themselves when it comes to potential health risks.

No other antibiotic carries as high a potential to cause serious, permanent injuries and even death, as the fluoroquinolones do. Despite their higher than normal risks, doctors frequently prescribe them as a first line of treatment even for mild infections. Always ask your doctor if there is a safer alternative.

And, adding insult to injury, most victims claim they were never warned that there are dire adverse effects associated with these antibiotics. I strongly advise you to educate yourself about the risks of fluoroquinolones, and refuse any prescription for these drugs unless absolutely necessary.

Warning: Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics May Cause Permanent Nerve Damage

By Dr. Mercola

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued a warning that fluoroquinolone antibiotics, taken by mouth or injection, carry a risk for permanent peripheral neuropathy. The safety announcement states:

“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has required the drug labels and Medication Guides for all fluoroquinolone antibacterial drugs be updated to better describe the serious side effect of peripheral neuropathy.

This serious nerve damage potentially caused by fluoroquinolones may occur soon after these drugs are taken and may be permanent… The topical formulations of fluoroquinolones, applied to the ears or eyes, are not known to be associated with this risk. Continue reading

Probiotics Taken During Pregnancy Decrease Risk of Allergies in Kids

Monday, September 09, 2013 by: L.J. Devon

(NaturalNews) Probiotics stimulate the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the intestines and the gut. A new analysis encourages pregnant mothers to take probiotics during pregnancy to help lower the risk of allergies in their kids. The good bacteria balance in a mother’s gut is passed to their baby through the placenta and the colustrum of breast milk. Probiotics are a great way to nurture the child even before they are born.

How to kill flesh-eating bacteria fast

You may have heard about the recent tragedy of Aimee Copeland. This beautifulGeorgiagraduate student recently went on a zip line adventure.
