5G is a new technology currently being implemented and continually going through the process of implementation in many areas. It will bring wireless data and internet connections to the world. But, recent research has shown great cause for concern with regards to our electromagnetic radiation exposure, not just 5G, but all sources of this radiation that surround us, from our wireless devices, our wireless routers, cell phone towers and more.

Research has also shown that the same frequencies used by the Department of Defense in crowd control weapons actually form the foundation of the 5G network. Not only that, we are seeing strong links to cancer, brain abnormalities, and a number of other health concerns related to these new technologies.

These health reasons are exactly why this type of technology is completely banned in hospital nurseries and an elementary school across several countries in Europe.

A Veteran MD Puts It Bluntly

Below is a video from Dr. Sharon Goldberg, an internal medicine physician, professor, and academic with more than two decades in the field. She gives her testimony regarding electromagnetic radiation, as well as 5G and makes it quite clear that there is a serious issue here. Industry-sponsored 5G wireless infrastructure legislation recently passed through the Michigan House Energy Policy Committee with a vote of 15 to 4.

Wireless radiation has biological effects. Period. This is no longer a subject for debate when you look at PubMed and the peer-review literature. These effects are seen in all life forms; plants, animals, insects, microbes. In humans, we have clear evidence of cancer now: there is no question We have evidence of DNA damage, cardiomyopathy, which is the precursor of congestive heart failure, neuropsychiatric effects…5G is an untested application of a technology that we know is harmful; we know it from the science. In academics, this is called human subjects research.” – Goldberg

Awareness Being Created

It’s encouraging to see the massive amounts of awareness being created around this issue. Aside from all of the scientists stepping up and putting out peer-reviewed research on the topic, we also need doctors to start raising their voice and to continue their education beyond their medical education with regards to EMF dangers.

Dr. Martin Blank, Ph.D., from the Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics at Colombia University, has joined a group of scientists from around the world who are making an international appeal to the United Nations regarding the dangers associated with the use of electromagnetic emitting devices like cell phones and Wi-Fi. He and hundreds of other scientists around the world are currently petitioning the UN, and have been for quite some time, regarding the dangers associated with these devices.

“Putting it bluntly they are damaging the living cells in our bodies and killing many of us prematurely” (source)

Dr. Aseem Malhotra, for example, a well-known Doctor in Britain who had some choice words to say in front of the European Parliment recently about modern-day education and the overall knowledge doctors possess. He’s one of many who continues to emerge and speak out. He believes that medical education is in a state of “complete system failure,” causing “an epidemic of misinformed doctors.”

So we have to ask ourselves, with known health impacts, why and how are these companies allowed roll out these technologies without any appropriate safety concerns being addressed? It’s almost like we’re part of one massive experiment when it comes to how these techs will affect us. Experts in this field are comparing it to tobacco, once thought to be perfectly safe, despite companies knowing that it wasn’t. Do we want to repeat that process?

We’ve written multiple articles on this topic that go into far greater detail and cite all the science. You can access these here. You can access hundreds of these scientific papers and read more here, just click on the science section and under each heading, there are links directly to the research.  If you click on the drop-down tab, a list of scientific references as documentation appear.

The Solutions

There are multiple solutions for reducing your exposure to EMF radiation. You could have a wired internet connection at home, which is actually faster. You could unplug your devices before bed, you can purchase electromagnetic radiation shielded clothing from multiple providers. You can also purchase small devices that go right on your phone that help protect against this radiation. Do your research on ‘EMF protection devices’ to find what works for you.

You could also mitigate some effects by living a more healthy lifestyle. This includes diet, nature exposure, limiting screen and phone time and other wellness practices.

The Takeaway

It’s important to remember that there are solutions, there is nothing to fear here, and given the information mentioned above, as well as mind-body consciousness, there are always changes you can make to lower your EMF exposure. That being said, we should still be speaking up, and speaking out about this issue whenever, and wherever can. Awareness never hurts.

The Children’s Health Defense team has pulled together the following resources to help you make informed decisions about the flu vaccine in order to protect you and your family from harm.

For instance, mercury is a neurotoxin and contained in some flu vaccines. It has been linked to neurodevelopmental disorders and many diseases. Please download and copy or print the brochure below to share with your family, friends, doctors and community leaders.

Flu Shots During Pregnancy: Cause for Concern –  Cathy Isaacs was pregnant with twins when against her better judgement her doctor convinced her to get a flu vaccine. Immediately after receiving the vaccine Cathy began miscarrying.  She lost her son. Her daughter was vaccine-injured and subsequently diagnosed with Autism. Watch Cathy tell her story.

Flu vaccine supply is produced by private manufacturers, so the supply depends on them. The vaccine manufacturers originally projected that as many as 163 million to 168 million doses of injectable flu vaccine (i.e., inactivated and recombinant flu vaccines.) Approximately 33- 34 million of those vaccines will contain thimerosal. ( CDC Vaccine Supply and Distribution)

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns pregnant women and young children not to eat fish containing high levels of methylmercury. Yet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends pregnant women and infants get influenza vaccines, many of which contain ethylmercury from the preservative thimerosal. Receiving them may result in mercury exposures exceeding the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommended maximum levels.

FDA/EPA 2017 Advice

CDC Recommendations

The research on fetal exposure to mercury from maternal flu shots has never been done.

For a 6-month-old infant, the calculation is as follows:  The average 50th percentile weight for a 6-month-old is 7.6kg, the maximum recommended daily exposure to methylmercury per the EPA is 0.1 mcg/kg/day (or .76155 mcg for this weight) and an infant flu shot may contain 12.5 mcg of mercury. This yields an exposure 16 times the EPA limit from a single flu shot.

Children’s Health Defense is deeply concerned that the risks of getting mercury-containing seasonal influenza vaccines may outweigh the benefits for pregnant women, infants and children.  Mercury is known to be highly toxic to brain tissue and can impact critical stages of brain development.

Millions of pages of declassified documents, witness testimony from thousands of credible people from all branches of global militaries, intelligence agencies and more, not to mention electrooptical data (radar trackings, videos etc), have ‘outed’ the UFO phenomenon within the mainstream world. The topic is also becoming less taboo within academia; some universities even offer courses related to the study of these mysterious objects. The extraterrestrial hypothesis, which represents one explanation for the UFO phenomenon, has enormous amounts of credibility behind it. According to many–astronauts, military personnel, and high ranking politicians–we are not alone, and never have been.

There are unidentified flying objects. That is, there are a hard core of cases–perhaps 20 to 30 percent in different studies–for which there is no explanation. We can only imagine what purpose lies behind the activities of these quiet, harmlessly cruising objects that time and again approach the Earth. The most likely explanation, it seems to me, is that they are simply watching what we are up to. (Mead)

A recently retired professor and historian, Dr. David M. Jacobs, makes a great point when it comes to these things. He muses that if this is all false, and there are no such things, then “we have found the most important thing ever in the history of neurology, brain function, cognition…” In other words, he is saying that this is real, and many people who have been labelled as “crazy” aren’t so crazy after all. He made these comments in a video embedded in this article I published about him earlier.

With the amount of credibility that comes from previous statements of established people within the military, witness testimony has taken on more importance. There are those out there who refuse to acknowledge witness testimony as anything significant, which at this point is borderline crazy. We have a verified phenomenon here, and a lot of testimony comes from those who have been involved in many of the incidents that have already been established via official documentation.

Examples Of Witness Testimony

This document from the Project Bluebook files is quite extraordinary, but what is more extraordinary is the live testimony given by one of the people mentioned in that document, Navy commander pilot Graham Bethune. You can watch his testimony of this incident here, where he says he learned that a certain object was extraterrestrial from “the boys upstairs.”

When it comes to extraterrestrial incidents, one common theme is the crash retrieval of UFOs.  It’s been discussed within UFO lore for decades, and stories from ‘credible’ people tell of multiple downed UFOs. It’s certinly not just limited to the Roswell incident. Dr. David Clarke is an investigative journalist, reader and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in England. He was also the curator for The National Archives UFO project from 2008–13, and regularly comments in national and international media on UFOs.

He pointed out some of the latest examples, using documents from the national archives that reveal how the Royal Air Force (RAF) expressed great interest in finding UFOs to help come up with new and innovative ways to combat their enemies.  Apparently, they were gathering evidence that other nations had collected this technology. Having been an avid researcher into the field myself for more than a decade, I can say that stories of multiple retrievals and crash retrievals of unknown aerial objects are abundant. Dr. Clark told The Daily Mail,

Even though they have been partly censored they can’t conceal the fact the UK military were interested in capturing UFO technology or what they coyly refer to as ‘novel weapon technology’…And the files reveal they were desperate to capture this technology – wherever it came from – before the Russians or the Chinese got hold of it first….Although this was 1997, Russia was still regarded as an undefeated enemy with a weapons programme regarded as a threat to the West.

Here’s a great quote from former Candian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer, which gives us an idea regarding the protocol to deal with these unknown objects:

“Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about where we were headed and offered to help. But instead, we, or at least some of us, interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after.” (source)

Another classic example would be the CIA keeping tabs on developments in Germany, as explained by this document, which looked into “a German newspaper” that “recently published an interview with George Klein, famous engineer and aircraft expert, describing the experimental construction of ‘flying saucers’ carried out by him from 1941 to 1945.” How did they study these flying saucers? Were they from crashes?

You might be saying to yourself, “a civilization travelling through a sea of stars would not be susceptible to human interference.” I would say that’s incorrect, if you’ve studied anything at all about the black budget, you would know that we ourselves are pretty advanced. Perhaps some civilizations have never experienced such violence and are not prepared? Perhaps the concept of “military” doesn’t exist within some civilizations, or perhaps some civilizations have weaponry that’s on par with ours. Perhaps some of our weaponry is alien technology?

We have, indeed, been contacted — perhaps even visited — by extraterrestrial beings, and the US government, in collusion with the other national powers of the Earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public.” Victor Marchetti, former special assistant to the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency
(Second Look, Volume 1, No 7, Washington, DC, May, 1979)

Below is a video of Lance Corporal Jonathan Weygandt, one of hunderds of verified military personnel that have been interviewed by Dr. Steve Greer, the man behind the release of the recent documentary “Unacknowledged.” He tells of a situation regarding a UFO crash retrieval in Peru, with extraterrestrial beings who were telepathically asking him to help them get out of there. Eventually, black ops stepped in, reprimanded him, and did whatever it is they do with these crafts and bodies.

Based on my research and reading of the lore, they are studied for scientific purposes and, in some cases, kept ‘prisoner’ for communication (Interfacing) purposes. But going that deep is simply speculation.

“Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered” – Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut.

The Takeaway

There are many rabbit holes you can go down, but the point is, it’s ok to listen to these stories with an open mind, given who these people are, the consistency of their stories and the number of stories that are coming from people with similar backgrounds. The movement is growing and eventually, we will all experience something that will change humanity forever. The implications of this are huge, and it’s great that it’s no longer taboo.

There are huge lessons here, from technology to metaphysical and spiritual implications and more. It’s a lot for humanity to handle, and perhaps that’s why we’re seeing a slow and gradual process of disclosure. Sure, special powerful interest groups may be benefiting from the secrecy, and are possibly looking to capitalize on disclosure as well, but contact goes beyond us. It’s a lesson that can expand our consciousness, and ultimately, the human population is in charge of when we choose to ‘make contact’ in an open way, because right now, it seems everything is so secretive and behind the scenes, when really what we need is full-blown transparency.

A message to those “within”: quit using ‘national security’ to justify secrecy. We need to become an open and connected global community, not one like the New World Order proposes, but one based on the interests of all of humanity and our planet. We can thrive together in cooperation, not competition. We do not need to label or demonize extraterrestrials. As Margaret Mead said,

We should not bracket UFOs with angels, archangels, devils and demons. But this is just what we’re doing when we ask whether people believe in UFOs; as if their existence were an article of faith. Do people believe in the sun or the moon, or the changing seasons, or the chairs they’re sitting on? When we want to understand something strange, something previously unknown to anyone, we have to begin with an entirely different set of questions. What is it? How does it work? Are their recurrent regularities? Beginning in this way, with an open mind, people can take a hard look at all the evidence.

New state energy goals and innovative utility program offerings have been making headlines in recent months. These types of regional policies and incentives are important, especially as we face challenges ranging from grid constraints and fluctuating electricity prices to environmental concerns, but significant portions of the country are outside of the direct influence of energy use mandates and incentives.

While the Tao Te Ching is not one of the world’s most discussed religious texts, at least relative to the amount of attention the Bible, Quran, and Buddhist and Hindu doctrines receive, Laozi’s slim volume of instructions has massively influenced how we think about Eastern philosophy. The basis of Taoism is embedded in his series of short and punchy ideas that are rooted in, at times, paradoxical thinking.

Consider one of his most famous aphorisms: “The Tao does nothing, and yet nothing is left undone.” The ‘nothing’ is wu-wei, often translated as ‘non-action.’ One translation of Taoist ideas, Tao: The Watercourse Way, written by British philosopher Alan Watts and Chinese philosopher Chungliang Al Huang in 1975, state that the concept should not “be considered inertia, laziness, laissez-faire, or mere passivity.”

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The Fine Art of Non-Doing

As with those who believe meditation is ‘doing nothing,’ wu-wei is not an easily graspable concept when approached from a mindset of constant action, i.e. the perpetual distraction our brains (and by extension, technology) afford us. Rather, the idea is to not battle yourself to, at times, let the course of life have its way with us. As the authors put it:

Wu-wei as ‘not forcing’ is what we mean by going with the grain, rolling with the punch, swimming with the current, trimming sails to the wind, taking the tide at its flood, and stooping to conquer.

They compare the practice to judo and aikido, two martial arts that teach seasoned practitioners to use their opponent’s force against themselves. By waiting for the challenger to overextend himself, you exploit their exertion and use his body weight to overthrow him. To accomplish this, you need to maintain calm and composure in the midst of potential violence and chaos.

Obsession with Overthinking

Which is why Nick Hobson, a research psychologist and lecturer at the University of Toronto, recently suggested implementing wu-wei as an antidote to our rising rates of anxiety and depression. Instead of pinpointing a singular cause for our growing dissatisfaction with our lives, he points out the reasons are myriad: smartphones, sleep deprivation, a lack of meaningful social connection, and not enough movement. He doesn’t mention diet, though plenty of research implicates bad eating habits as well.

While the causes are many, Hobson points to our penchant for overanalyzing every situation as the elephant in the mind. Instead of holism, a cognitive trait he associates with Eastern psychology, we choose the trees over the forest, leading to an obsession with overthinking.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This stark cultural difference has been confirmed by thinkers like social psychologist Richard Nisbett, who devoted an entire book to the topic. One of the most revealing instances involves the ways in which Easterners and Westerners—these terms are generic and broad, but serve to supply a bit of yin to our yang, at least as a metaphor–view art. Americans seek out a subject, an overarching detail that exemplifies the ‘purpose’ of the painting. Asians, by contrast, seek to understand the relationship between everything in the scene. Their focus is more on interdependence than independence.

Triad Test

Hobson uses the ‘triad test’ to make this point:

Suppose you’re presented with a dog, a rabbit, and a carrot, and then asked which two belong together. The analytic thinker chooses the dog and rabbit because both satisfy the internally held rule of ‘animal category.’ The holistic thinker, on the other hand, chooses the rabbit and carrot because of the interconnected and functional relationship between the two: A rabbit eats carrots.

Western ‘rule-based reasoning’ leads us to believe every problem has a solution. Research in cognition and narrative has shown that when we aren’t offered a resolution to a story, we’ll invent one, often to our detriment—your partner is cheating on you if they haven’t texted, while the reality is anything but. When we’re not provided an answer, we tend to overanalyze the situation, heaping anxiety upon anxiety.

Two Ways to Find Calm in the Chaos

Which is why Hobson suggests two Laozi-era practices to calm our overactive imaginations. Wu-wei is the first, which he says means “we shouldn’t hurry to action.” While he prescribes “to not do anything at all,” which is slightly different from Watts’s and Al Huang’s translation, Hobson recommends an “intuitive style of thinking” to chill our over-analyzing minds. Meditation and visualization exercises are two ways of rerouting our mental habits.

(function(w,d,s,i){w.ldAdInit=w.ldAdInit||[];w.ldAdInit.push({slot:10162674340441958,size:[0, 0],id:"ld-8962-3608"});if(!d.getElementById(i)){var j=d.createElement(s),p=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];j.async=true;j.src="//cdn2.lockerdomecdn.com/_js/ajs.js";j.id=i;p.parentNode.insertBefore(j,p);}})(window,document,"script","ld-ajs");

The second involves dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), an evidence-based therapy created by Dr. Marsha Linehan. Among its many applications, it is designed to promote skills for cultivating “mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness.”

To make this connection, Hobson points to Taoism’s great export, the yin-yang symbol, which denotes mutual dependence exists in everything. Hobson continues:

Two things can be mutually opposed, and at the same time, mutually connected. You can be, for example, in an anxious state and still have perfect control of your situation and your life. Thinking in this way allows a person to tolerate contradictions and to accept the uncertainties that inevitably present themselves.

Hobson writes that DBT has proven more effective than cognitive behavioral therapy (Linehan considers DBT a form of CBT) and pharmacological interventions. The goal is to make incremental changes by admitting that:

a) not everything is going to be exactly how you want it, and that’s okay, b) certain changes will have to be implemented, so practice those changes, and c) recognize that life is worth living. In the balance between states that afflict those suffering from psychological disorders—complete control and lack of control—an emotionally salient mindset can be achieved.

Breaking Free

Not that any of this is easy, but as Hobson mentions, neuroplasticity is a real phenomenon. Seeing the landscape instead of the singular figure walking through it is essential for breaking free of isolationism and the overwhelming burden of anxiety. As Watts and Al Huang phrased it:

Is a long life such a good thing if it is lived in daily dread or in constant search for satisfaction in a tomorrow which never comes?

We all intuitively know the answer. Putting that intuition into action, ironically through a bit of non-action, might just be an important key to healing our anxious minds.

This is article number two in a series about 5G. We have no choice but to cover this because our friends and family in the Sacramento area are suffering from symptoms now, according to their firsthand accounts of nausea, headaches, and chest pains, from Natomas to downtown Sacramento.

If we’re going to understand Verizon’s 4-city rollout of 5G and the 23 city AT&T deployment, we have to understand what frequency WiFi currently operates at, and the consequences we’ve already been suffering from that.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

One correction must be issued to the last article: most 4G, WiFi these days operates at a frequency of 2.45 GHz, or at maximum 5 GHz.

Verizon’s 5G, just installed in Sacramento, Houston, Indianapolis, and Los Angeles operates at between 28 GHz and 39 GHz. The headline of this article said 35 GHz in particular because that’s in the middle of their spectrum, and studies have shown 35 GHz frequencies seem to cause immune system problems in rats.

The last article said WiFi usually operates below 1 GHz, because we paraphrased the misleading info provided by Verizon. The truth is more complicated: “4G LTE,” the phone data we use, is supposed to be between under 1 GHz and 3.8 GHz. But what happens if someone uses a WiFi hotspot on their 4G phone, does that make the frequency 2.45 GHz?

The question gets complicated, but regardless of the answer, this entire frequency band we’re currently being exposed to seems to be fueling a global infertility crisis.

That’s actually not an exaggeration, we’re living through a global infertility crisis. That’s another topic and one we’ll cover in the future: just type “infertility crisis” into your search engine, set it to “news” and watch what comes up.

There are a lot, and I mean a lot of studies linking the current WiFi that operates around 2.4 GHz to infertility and other immediately noticeable symptoms.

For this article however, we’ve chosen one study performed in Iran, published in the journal Cell in 2015.

The study is titled “Effects of Wi-Fi (2.45 GHz) Exposure on Apoptosis, Sperm Parameters and Testicular Histomorphometry in Rats: A Time Course Study.”

(Image credit: PubMed)

It’s an excellent, straightforward and rich but not too complicated paper, explaining that we need to know the consequences of being saturated in 2.45 GHz radio-frequency radiation.

It was conducted at the Zanjan University of Medical Sciences, in Zanjan, Iran, from June to August 2014.

In the study, three-month old Wistar rats were exposed to the 2.45 GHz radiation, sadly, in a chamber that contained two Wi-Fi antennas on opposite walls.

The animals were divided into three categories: a control group with healthy, non Wi-Fi exposed animals, a group exposed to the Wi-Fi for 1 hour a day for two months, and a third group that was exposed to Wi-Fi for 7 hours a day for 2 months.

All the animals were studied, for their sperm parameters, capase-3 concentrations, and histomorphometric changes in their testicles, as well as the apoptotic indexes of the animals.

The study concluded that both the 1 hour exposed and 7 hour a day exposed animals showed a decrease in sperm parameters.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Even a small amount of Wi-Fi exposure per day on a regular basis damages the sperm of mice, the study proved.

It concluded, very clearly:

“Regarding to the progressive privilege of 2.45 GHz wireless networks in our environment, we concluded that there should be a major concern regarding the time dependent exposure of whole-body to the higher frequencies of Wi-Fi networks existing in the vicinity of our living places.”

The paper went as far as to say:

 “Decline in male fertility, as one of parameters in this study, is considered as a major concern during the past several decades. It has been suggested that direct or indirect exposure to RF-EMW as the main environmental factor plays a dominant role in the observed decline (28). The 2400-2500 GHz radio frequency emitting from Wi-Fi-enabled devices has a long exposure time over a very wide area (21921). Hence, this transmitted energy can be absorbed by human body (829).”

Decline in male fertility has been considered a major concern during the past several decades, they said.

They found that direct or indirect exposure to these frequencies, as a main environmental factor, plays a dominant role in the decline of fertility, that has been concretely observed.

WiFi is influencing a global infertility crisis, and the frequencies are being raised, with cell units closer to our heads and bodies.

Now here’s where modern Wi-Fi gets completely insane: 2.4 GHz is the exact frequency a microwave oven uses to cook things.

Our Wi-Fi is currently the exact same frequency microwaves cook our food with, there is absolutely no difference between the two except for the concentrated power in a microwave oven to focus the frequencies.

(Image credit: Physics-Stack Exchange)

What does it mean that our current Wi-Fi is already literally cooking us, like low power microwave ovens, on the exact same 2.4 GHz frequency? What does it mean that it’s about to be raised to the millimeter wave band?

This is a model of where a 5G unit will be placed in Houston, but it’s unrealistic because those little cells are going to be installed much closer to our heads, on small buildings and poles.

Breaking: Let’s go right to this report from most trusted name in news, to find out what we are supposed to be paying attention to today:

Authorities have intercepted bombs intended for former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and several other top political figures were targeted in what authorities are investigating as a connected series of incidents. Also, CNN’s New York bureau in the Time Warner Center was evacuated after a package containing a bomb, addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, was discovered, city and local law enforcement officials said.

In addition, sources told CNN that a suspicious package intended for California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters was intercepted at a congressional mail screening facility in Maryland; New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo received what he said was a device at his Manhattan office; and the San Diego Union-Tribune evacuated its building after “suspicious looking packages” were spotted outside.

The developments, which unfolded rapidly and continued steadily into the afternoon, touched off fear and confusion and immediately invited questions about the motives of those responsible. The recipients of the packages are all prominent targets of right-wing criticism and, in many cases, of President Donald Trump himself.–CNN

Framing The Narrative

What fear and confusion? Even early reports demonstrated that everything was under control. Who exactly was fearful and confused? The average joe on the street? I don’t think so. The targeted politicians? Seemingly not, if Hillary Clinton’s calm analysis of the situation is any indication. And you gotta love the lead-in to that last line in the CNN report: the recipients of the packages were not called ‘Left-Leaning Liberals’ or even ‘Democrats,’ they were ‘prominent targets of right-wing criticism and, in many cases, of President Donald Trump himself.’ What a beautiful frame. It must have cost them a fortune.

This article in Vanity Fair goes deeper, as it is put under the heading ‘fake news’ and tried to relegate to right-wing conspiracy theory nuttery the logical idea that the bomb ‘threats’ are an attempt by the Deep State to control the narrative.

The attempted bombing of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, CNN, and other high-profile political targets feels as predictable as it is horrific, following a month of steadily darkening passions: bloody clashes between white nationalists and Antifa on the Upper East Side, angry diners chasing Republicans out of restaurants, children in cages on the southern border, and Donald Trump’s incitements to violence against journalists and conspiratorial ravings about Soros, leftist agitators, and a “caravan” of criminal migrants winding its way up through Central America. Equally predictable was the response on the far-right, which quickly divined a more sinister purpose behind what appeared to be a coordinated act of terrorism.

Whether this more ‘sinister’ purpose makes more sense than the idea being promoted by Vanity Fair–that these attempted bombings were perpetrated by Trump supporters amidst the ‘steadily darkening passions’ that have been caused by Donald Trump himself–can be determined with a bit of objective observation. Certainly, the fact that the ‘children in cages’ narrative is still in the list of Trump faux-pas when it has been founded on Obama-era pictures does not speak well of VF’s case.

Questioning The Motive

Again, as I’ve previously discussed regarding false flags and other forms of deception, I like to focus on motivation as a key component for helping me discern who might be responsible for a certain event, especially if the event doesn’t make a lot of sense on the face of it.

Really, there are only two possibilities. Nobody is foolish enough to try to claim the Trump administration is responsible for this. But the narrative that the Deep State is trying to build, as we’ve seen above, is that Trump has created all the rage, hatred, and divisiveness the country is currently experiencing, and this has somehow ‘motivated’ one of his supporters to target many of the people Trump has been critical of.

Does this motivation seem reasonable? This person would need to be smart enough to pull off such a well-timed execution of several of these devices being discovered on the same day (not sure why it would be important for this person to have so many occur on the same day) but dumb enough to actually think they would reach their intended targets, and out-of-touch enough to feel that he is actually doing something positive for Donald Trump by these efforts.

The other possibility is that this is a soft ‘false flag’ stunt orchestrated by the Deep State in order to build the very narrative described above that Trump has caused great hatred and division in the country, with the implication that the Democrats are the ones who will be able to heal this divide, if they are supported in the mid-term elections to gain majorities in the House and Senate.

Not sure if this is their ploy? Let’s listen to the tone of some initial reactions by Democrats to the mail bombs:

“Every day, we are grateful for [the secret service], and obviously never more than today. But it is a troubling time, isn’t it? And it’s a time of deep divisions, and we have to do everything we can to bring our country together.”–Hillary Clinton

“This appalling attack on our democracy must be vigorously prosecuted, and I am deeply disturbed by the way my name was used. Today, my staff and I will hug each other and our loved ones tightly, and tomorrow get back to work serving the people I was elected to represent.”–Debbie Wasserman Schultz

“We listened with great interest to the President’s remarks this afternoon. We all take an oath to support and defend the constitution and protect the American people, and that is our first responsibility. However, President Trump’s words ring hollow until he reverses his statements that condone acts of violence.Time and time again, the President has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions. Expressing support for the Congressman who body-slammed a reporter, the neo-Nazis who killed a young woman in Charlottesville, his supporters at rallies who get violent with protesters, dictators around the world who murder their own citizens, and referring to the free press as the enemy of the people.”–Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer

Seems to me like they are really running with this narrative, and it is all founded on the highly coordinated appearance of all these crude mail bombs. False flag gets my vote.

Playing The Game

Of course, even if the Trump administration knew it was a false flag, it would be political suicide to be publicizing this view. Instead, they have to play the game, so as not to disenchant the vast amount of half-asleep voters whose decisions whether or not to go to the midterm election voting stations hold the balance of power.

Donald Trump roundly condemned the attacks in predictable fashion, as did Vice President Mike Pence. In fact, here’s an experiment. If you were playing the game, what would you tell Pence to say in a press conference about the mail bombs? You’d probably suggest he reassure the voters about how seriously this is being taken, and you might even tell him to ‘really give us a look like you mean business at the end.’ Now watch the video see if it plays out exactly as you had scripted it, as if you were directing him yourself.

Plastered In The Mainstream

The ubiquity of mainstream coverage on these mail bombs only reinforces the notion that this is absolutely the only thing the mainstream media wants people to pay attention to. And usually when mainstream media wants you to pay attention to one thing, it’s because they don’t want you to pay attention to another thing. Sleight of hand. Bait and switch. We should be well used to it by now.

What do they not want us to pay attention to? Probably a long list of things. But I’m particularly interested in why mainstream media was absolutely stone cold silent on a recent Federal Court hearing brought about through a FOIA lawsuit seeking information about Hillary Clinton’s involvement in the Benghazi murders, and more particularly the attempted coverup and obstruction of justice on the part of the State Department. From the Judicial Watch site:

In his opening remarks during a hearing last Friday (October 12), Judge Lamberth strongly criticized the U.S. Department of State: “The information that I was provided was clearly false regarding the adequacy of the [Clinton email] search and… what we now know turned out to be the Secretary’s email system.”

Turning his attention to the Department of Justice, Judge Lamberth said that he was “dumbfounded” by the agency’s Inspector General report revealing that Cheryl Mills had been given immunity and was allowed to accompany former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to her FBI interview:

“I had myself found that Cheryl Mills had committed perjury and lied under oath in a published opinion I had issued in a Judicial Watch case where I found her unworthy of belief, and I was quite shocked to find out she had been given immunity in — by the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case. So I did not know that until I read the IG report and learned that and that she had accompanied the Secretary to her interview.”

Certainly the fact that there is legal proof that perjury, lies, intentional omissions and obfuscations have been revealed as the reasons the Benghazi investigation did not lead to the indictment and conviction of Hillary Clinton might be of interest to the general public, no? It’s pretty hard to miss what’s actually happening here with mainstream media.

The Takeaway

The veils of deception that orchestrate the mainstream media’s desire to control the narrative have become virtually transparent, which bodes well for an awakening community hungry for the truth behind the deception. Let’s all keep using our growing discernment of publicized events to lead us to that truth.

Earlier this month, the world’s largest meatpacker, JBS Tolleson, recalled1 more than 6.9 million pounds of raw beef processed in its Arizona facility due to possible contamination with Salmonella enterica of the serotype Newport, a more unusual strain of Salmonella.2 The recalled products were processed between July 26 and September 7, 2018.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), “The products subject to recall bear establishment number ‘EST. 267’ inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations and institutions nationwide.” In all, the recall affects 49 different JBS product lines, including its grass fed beef sold under the Grass Run Farms name.3

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The first reported illness linked to this Salmonella outbreak was reported September 19. Between August 5 and September 6, another 56 individuals in 16 states fell ill from eating the contaminated products. As noted by USDA:4

“Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product.

The illness usually lasts four to seven days. Most people recover without treatment. In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider …

FSIS [U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service] is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.”

According to former USDA food safety specialist Carl Custer, this is the largest recall of ground beef related to Salmonella contamination ever recorded.5 But just how does the meat of 13,000 animals get contaminated with a pathogen like Salmonella in the first place?

Why Contamination Affects Such Large Amounts of Meat

The answer is quite simple. While many think of a pack of ground beef as being the meat from an individual cow, it’s actually an amalgam of meat from many different cows — a single fast food hamburger can contain meat from more than 1,000 animals,6 and all you need is one sick animal to contaminate nearly unlimited amounts of meat as it all runs through the same processing equipment and gets mixed together in gigantic batches.

It’s also important to realize that contamination is far more common than you might suspect — not just from potentially harmful bacteria but also drugs, including banned ones. As recently reported by Consumer Reports,7 drugs such as ketamine (a hallucinogenic anesthetic), phenylbutazone (an anti-inflammatory pain reliever) and chloramphenicol (a potent and dangerous antibiotic), are all found in the U.S. meat supply.

A recent Environmental Working Group (EWG) analysis of food testing done by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2015 reveals 83 percent of all supermarket meats — including turkey, pork, beef and chicken products — were contaminated with Enterococcus faecalis, i.e., fecal bacteria, and a high percentage had antibiotic-resistant bacteria.8,9

Sixty-two percent of ground beef samples were contaminated with drug-resistant Enterococcus faecalis, 26 percent of which were resistant to tetracyclines. Considering the high contamination rate, the fact that more people aren’t sickened and/or killed on a routine basis is likely a testament to the efficacy of the human immune system.

Dairy Farm Identified as Source of Origin of Salmonella Infection

Knowing that it takes just one sick animal to contaminate enormous amounts of meat, the next question would probably be: Where did the sick animal come from and why was it allowed into the meat supply? According to a report by New Food Economy,10 the outbreak appears to have originated at a concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) for dairy cows. Joe Fassler writes:

“That’s important, because dairy cows processed for meat turn out to be a kind of food safety blind spot … [D]airy cows sickened by Salmonella are more likely than healthy ones to be sent to meat plants for slaughter.

Once there, they’re likely to be ground up and used as filler in thousands of pounds of beef, dramatically increasing their risk potential. Perhaps most surprisingly, there’s no system in place to track or disarm this risk.

In fact, thanks to a quirk in food safety law, meatpackers aren’t required to test for Salmonella. And even when it is present, the government can’t really do anything about it — not even if millions of pounds of tainted product are at stake.

While we may never know the exact details of this outbreak, we can look to previous recalls for clues — and established facts point to a massive, ongoing food safety crisis hidden in plain sight.”

Indeed, the Newport serotype of Salmonella implicated in this outbreak is strongly linked to dairy cows.11 They’re a primary carrier of this rarer strain, and as early as 2002 the CDC warned drug-resistant Salmonella Newport in dairy cattle was a growing threat to public health.12 At that time, the agency said S. Newport accounted for about 140,000 cases of salmonellosis each year, or about 10 percent of all cases.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

An outbreak of S. Newport in ground beef that occurred between October 2016 and July 2017 has also been traced back to dairy cows.13 “But how does Salmonella Newport get into dairy cows in the first place, and why is that strain so likely to end up in our hamburgers? This part of the story that has to do with biology, economics and regulation — and it’s where things start to get very interesting,” Fassler writes.

Sick Dairy Cows Get Sold for Meat

As explained by Fassler in his New Food Economy article, dairy farming is all about productivity. Each cow must be as productive as possible to make it worth keeping. Once a cow’s ability to produce milk goes down, she will be culled,14 meaning sold for meat. However, while this is standard practice, it’s an unfortunate one that significantly raises public health risks.

The reason why a cow’s milk production goes down is typically due either to old age or illness — including Salmonella infection, and S. Newport infection in particular.

As noted in a promotional pamphlet15 by veterinary drugmaker Zoetis, one of the primary symptoms of subclinical Salmonella infection in cows is a drop in milk production, typically by about 2.5 pounds of milk per day. And, since only low producers are sold for meat, this means the ground beef you buy is far more likely to contain the meat of old or sick cows than healthy ones.

The reason dairy cows are typically used for ground beef specifically is because they’re bred for milking and not for juicy steaks. Hence at least 20 percent of the ground beef on the U.S. market comes from culled dairy cows.16

“In this way, a strange kind of logic plays out across the industry: The sicker an animal is, the more likely it is to enter the food supply. Because when cows stop producing milk for any reason — whether it’s due to age, stress or disease — we usually end up eating them,”Fassler writes.

What’s more, while Salmonella only poses a mild risk in milk, thanks to required pasteurization, meat is not pasteurized in the same manner. Many also enjoy their hamburgers on the rare side, which further magnifies the risk of infection.

Inadequate Sanitation Poses Severe Infection Risk

Unfortunately, infected dairy cow meat can even affect grass fed products, as evidenced in this recall. While CAFO meat really should not be used as filler in certified grass fed products, the infection may still spread via contaminated processing equipment, which by law must take place only once every 24 hours. As noted by Angela Anandappa, founding director of the Alliance for Advanced Sanitation:17

“When you have a six-week window where you have many, many different types of products implicated, it appears to be a sanitation issue. If equipment wasn’t adequately cleaned, Salmonella could have taken up residence. That’s very possible here.”

Safety risks are further magnified by the fact that 80 percent of U.S. beef products are processed by just four slaughtering companies: Tyson Foods, Cargill, JBS USA and National Beef.18,19

With so much meat being processed by so few companies, any given outbreak is capable of affecting enormous amounts of product. As noted by Albert Foer, president of the American Antitrust Institute, “As you become more and more consolidated, with fewer and fewer redundancies, the opportunities for catastrophic breakdowns expand.”20

Salmonella-Tainted Meat Is Not Considered Hazardous to Human Health

Another point of interest is the fact that Salmonella (unlike E. coli) is not considered a hazardous adulterant in meat, and processors are therefore not required to test for it. So, while rigorous cleaning and disinfection of processing equipment combined with testing for Salmonella could prevent many of these kinds of outbreaks, that simply isn’t happening.

The reason for this is because Salmonella is typically destroyed during cooking, so if the raw meat contains the pathogen, it’s not considered hazardous to human health.21

“Even if Salmonella-tainted product actually starts making people sick, the government has no legal recourse to force a company to recall it, or to punish a company for distributing it in the first place,” Fassler notes. Indeed, meat recalls for Salmonella contamination are voluntary, and not required by force of law.

This is in sharp contrast to E. coli, which is legally considered an adulterant and must be tested for. Meat found to be contaminated with E. coli is illegal to sell. As a result, food poisoning resulting from E.coli have dropped by 40 percent since 1994, the year it became an adulterant under the Federal Meat Inspection Act.22

All of these factors are reasons to buy meat certified grass fed by the American Grassfed Association(AGA). By virtue of how the animals are raised, AGA-certified meats are far less likely to be contaminated with hazardous pathogens in the first place. AGA grass fed certification is also the only label able to guarantee that the meat comes from animals that:

  • Have been fed a 100 percent forage diet
  • Have never been confined in a feedlot
  • Have never received antibiotics or hormones
  • Were born and raised on American family farms (a vast majority of the grass fed meats sold in grocery stores are imported, and without COOL labeling, there’s no telling where it came from or what standards were followed)
Two Pending Bills That Could Prevent Food Poisoning Outbreaks

Clearly, there’s plenty of room for improvement when it comes to food safety. At present, there are two pending bills that could help American grass fed farmers and lower the risk of food poisoning that need your support:

•The New Markets for State-Inspected Meat and Poultry Act,23,24 introduced by U.S. Sens. Mike Rounds (R-SD) and Angus King (I-ME). This bipartisan bill would allow meat and poultry that have been inspected through state meat and poultry Inspection programs to be sold across state lines.

At present, 27 states have inspection programs certified by FSIS that meet or exceed federal inspection standards, but federal law still does not permit products processed at these facilities to be sold across state lines.

“It makes no sense that a local farmer should have to jump through extra federal hoops to compete … if they have proven the quality of their product at a federally-approved state facility. This commonsense legislation gives our state’s agricultural sector more flexibility to expand its customer base …” King says.25

•The Processing Revival and Intrastate Meat Exemption (PRIME) Act,26 which would authorize states to allow sale of custom-slaughtered meat in-state. At present, small livestock producers are forced to drive long distances to have their animals slaughtered at slaughterhouses that meet federal inspection standards.

Small, custom slaughterhouses are not permitted to sell any of their meat. These facilities can only be used by the owner of the animal and their family members, employees, nonpaying guests and customers who have purchased an entire animal prior to slaughter through a share program.

The PRIME Act would allow farmers to sell meat processed at these smaller slaughtering facilities. While critics warn the bill might endanger consumers by permitting the sale of uninspected meat, advocates say it would make sustainably raised local meat far more affordable, as transportation of animals to slaughter is a significant expense when there are so few slaughterhouses available.

USDA meat inspection also has far from a blemish-free history. Meanwhile, sustainably raised grass fed animals are far less prone to disease in the first place, and since the animals would be processed in extremely small batches — perhaps just a few animals per week — any risk of infection would be contained to a very limited number of individuals buying meat from that specific animal.

The town of Chipman, New Brunswick, a village of some 1,100 people about 60 kilometers east of Fredericton, was host to the latest dustup on gender and sexual preference. It provides an interesting context for a deeper discussion about how to promote acceptance, equal rights, and freedom of expression for all human beings in our communities. Here is the story from this CBC article in a nutshell.

On Sunday, October 21, a ‘straight pride’ flag was raised in the heart of the village of Chipman, NB. For those who have never heard of a ‘straight pride’ flag, like myself before I had read this article, the flag has a background of black and white horizontal lines which may or may not depict interlinked male and female symbols on top of them. It has been raised by some conservative groups in the U.S. in response to gay pride events.

In June, the village council had gone ahead for the first time to raise an LGBT pride flag in support of the LGBT community. A group of 11 Chipman residents headed by Glenn Bishop had met since to find ways to show support for straight people. Bishop had gone to the mayor about two months ago and asked to fly the flag. According to Bishop, the mayor said, ‘Sure we represent all groups of people.’ Subsequently, the council voted unanimously to raise the flag on October 21.

Resident Outrage

The appearance of the flag was met with outrage from some residents. When Margaret Clark first saw pictures on Facebook of the flag waving in the heart of the village, she said she felt as if she’d been kicked in the stomach. Her son is a gay man who was bullied when he was at the local high school:

“It’s just like they created a time machine and they put us back 10 years. To put up a straight pride flag is almost like putting up a swastika. It’s scary in this day and age — it’s 2018… It represents hatred: ‘We’re going to show them that us white, straight people are better.” –Margaret Clark

Less than half an hour after it was taken down, Bishop arrived and asked “Who took down my flag?” Members of the LGBT community who were standing there said, “We did,” and an altercation ensued. Bishop argued that he never meant to offend anyone and that they were being “sensitive.” Bishop maintains that “We are not against the gay pride people at all. I’m not against gay people; anybody’s sexual preference is their choice.”

But resident Mat Miller (seen holding an LGBT pride flag while arguing with Glenn Bishop, right) saw things differently. He and others said Bishop didn’t understand how the flag makes light of the struggle of being gay or non-binary.

“You’re against them by putting the flag up,” Miller told Bishop. “There’s no such thing as straight pride.” Miller said he’s happy to see the flag is down, but he still expects an apology from the mayor and council.

Council’s Statement

The council said later that the backlash against the raising of the straight pride flag included “personal attacks and threats” against councilors. The village council said Sunday’s flag raising was meant as a show of support to “all groups in our municipality and to respect everyone’s right to freedom of speech.”

“No harm or hate was intended in any way as we pride ourselves on Chipman being a diverse and vibrant community. This flag distraction is a lesson for us and for other rural communities such as our own.”–Council statement

What’s The Lesson?

If there is one thing in all this that I’m in full agreement with, it is that last statement that ‘This flag distraction is a lesson for us.’ The question is, how many have actually gleaned the true lesson contained therein?

Here’s an idea, some have mused. Those who are straight, and would like to show support for straight people but in so doing want to make it clear that they hold nothing against members of the LGBT community, like Bishop claims, can combine the two flags together and identify as a straight person who is an ‘ally’ of the LGBT community. Problem solved, right?

Alas, not exactly. As well-meaning as this effort may be, it still ultimately causes division, because it discriminates between heterosexuals who self-identify as ‘allies’ of the LGBT community and those heterosexuals who don’t. And anything that continues to subdivide us is not a lasting and all-inclusive solution.

The Trouble With Flags

The root of the problem here stems from what the action of flying a flag actually means. A flag is a representation of something: an idea, a nation, or in this case, a segment of the population. But because the LGBT flag and the straight pride flag each represent one part of the population at the exclusion of the other, the flying of these flags can be divisive when they are supposedly being ‘endorsed’ by representatives of a whole population (i.e. a village council).

The village council of Chipman, who seem well-meaning, missed the mark by agreeing to hoist either flag in the heart of the village. Firstly, because it is not necessary for the council to endorse a group which represents a segment of the population in order to safeguard their freedom of speech; freedom of speech is an individual right, as only one individual can speak at a time. So members of the LGBT community each have the right to speak freely. A group literally cannot ‘speak,’ and even a representative who speaks on behalf of a group, is still exercising their individual right to free speech.

Secondly, neither flag actually embodied the town’s desire to be seen as diverse and inclusive. In fact, when the representatives of the people (the council) endorse a flag as a community, they are essentially excluding one segment while making the other one special. But members of the LGBT community are not special, in the same way that non-members are not special. We are all equal.

When the LGBT community raises their flag within their own community, then it becomes a symbol of unity through diversity, an inspiration for people of different orientations to come together and feel accepted and welcome. But this flag will not go very far in bringing whole communities together, unless it is changed so that ALL people are represented on it. And the same is obviously true for the ‘straight pride’ flag.

The Takeaway

The ultimate destination of human evolution is for us to come together as one. While any particular group’s struggle for acceptance and equality in society may be a noble one, their is always the danger that it solidifies into a permanent identity founded on victimhood. It is only once this identity is fully transcended, the group’s collective ethos embodies the love and acceptance towards all of society that they want the rest of society to provide them with, do they become agents of change that actually helps to bring the entire collective together.

With these notions in your mind, locating the correct posting business for your own college should actually be a reasonably easy and fun job. If children do not pick up the abilities they’ve to understand and use within the first […]

First of all, I’d like to start off by emphasizing that billions of animals are raised for slaughter every single year, and that’s in America alone. It’s a horrid industry, full of torture, where animals are kept in heart-breaking conditions, stripped from their children, tortured, and made to live in fear for the entirety of their short miserable lives. This is no way to treat another being that shares this Earth with us, and we have no right to ‘grow’ them to feed ourselves, especially in an age where there are other options. Our actions with regards to eating animals is playing a big part in destroying the Earth.

What makes us think we are above them, or better than them, or have any right to do what we do to them?

Secondly, I’d like to point out that, although morality, ethics and empathy take precedence as a reason not to eat animals, so does health and the fact that it just doesn’t seem normal nor natural. Take milk for example, we are the only animal on the planet that drinks the milk of another animal, and the only species to continue drinking milk after weaning. Science is now confirming the benefits of a plant-based diet and their ability to reverse, heal, and prevent multiple diseases.

Plant-based protein is also thought, by many, to be a far better option than protein from meat, at least that’s what the science is showing. Not to mention the antibiotics that are pumped into these poor animals, as well as GMO animal feed which is laced with pesticides that are destroying the guts of these animals. It’s a dirty and unethical business, one that has proven just how far we’ve strayed from morality and the spiritual foundations that once allowed for others and ourselves to live harmoniously.

Arguments for eating animals tend to range, the most common seems to be that this is the diet of those who roamed the Earth before us. I published an article regarding that belief which you can read here. It’s not known that many of those groups were vegetarian based. There is so much information pointing to the idea that we are more suited and adapted towards eating a plant-based diet. The idea that meat is needed is simply not true, it reminds me of the clever marketing used by big food and big pharmaceutical corporations. We are only learning now that our food guides have been a recipe for disease. Perhaps eating meat is the same thing? Some that see enormous amounts of profits for a select few. Have we been made to believe that we ‘need’ to eat meat and that it’s ‘natural’?

When you actually look at the way our digestive systems are constructed, we have the anatomy and the physiology of a strict plant eater or herbivore.  We don’t have any adaptations in our digestive system or in our physiology that is adapted to eating or consuming animal flesh. And that’s why we can’t consume animal flesh without the aid of technology. But when you look at the jaw structure, jaw mechanics, our esophagus, our stomach and the length of our intestines, it’s clear that we have the anatomy of a committed herbivore.
Dr. Milton Mills

The world is no doubt changing, the consciousness of the planet is shifting and can be seen in multiple areas that completely surround all aspects of human life. Health is clearly one of them, vegan and vegetarian options are booming and more doctors, like this one, are using food to help reverse disease instead of prescribing prescription medications, something that kills 100,000 people alone every single year.

Many athletes are also going vegan and create a lot of awareness regarding the protein/muscle myth.

It is my understanding that veganism is an umbrella term which celebrates the daily practice of compassion, sustainability, health, and global/personal examination. It is a reference point for living a life that closely parallels these values. It is never about perfection or particulars, but incremental and exponential ripples of personal change for humanity.

The rewards of living consciously and collectively are not exclusive to any particular person and their dietary lifestyle. We all play an integral role in creating positive shifts on this planet, and all have different pieces of the pie where our gifts and strengths lie.

A Deeper Look At Veganism

If you had to experience the pain and fear an animal goes through during transport, being pushed into the slaughterhouse and the gas chamber or slaughter itself, you wouldn’t eat them. It’s only because you’re ignorant to reality—and their reality—that you do.
– Erin Janus

There are a lot of vegan activists out there that can make one feel guilty for eating meat, vegan activism can also create separation, fear and division, it’s usually what labels do. If you’re a vegan activist, it’s important to be conscious in the way you go about your activism, so you can reach more people. You never want to make someone feel guilty, or at fault, or like they are a bad human being that lacks compassion and empathy. I haven’t eaten meat for approximately 10 years now, and all though I do identify as a vegan today, I can tell you that 10-15 years ago, my love for animals was just the same as it is now.

That being said, it’s hard to watch a mass genocide take place on a daily basis and try and go about your activism with peace and understanding, but it’s of utmost importance.

On one hand, many vegan activists are asking people to have empathy for animals and what they are suffering through. At the same time they are not having empathy for people who may not be aware of the harm we’re causing to animals, and the lengthy journey it can be to make changes to our habits. We often forget that we once were not in ‘the know..’
Joe Martino

If you’ve been a long time reader of Collective Evolution, you’ll know that our unique style of conscious media incorporates neutrality and empathy into what we report and discuss. Why? Let’s explore with questions: where does it lead us, to always be fighting about issues? Where does it lead us, to bash other people about where they are at in their life and what they are doing? Can we not approach these situations with love? In fact, is it not clear that we HAVE to approach these situations with love if we want to see things change?

Plants Have Feelings…

Being a vegan activist myself, there is no shortage of a lack of understanding and backlash from the meat-eating community. There are those who claim that plants have feelings and emotions too, just like animals, but vegans disregard them…

The truth is, I agree, I am completely convinced through my research into the subject that plants do indeed have thoughts, feelings, and emotions, but ultimately, it feels much different eating them. It’s just not the same, and I don’t think I have to explain why… When you look into the eyes of an animal, it’s different. That being said, perhaps it’s not, and we just perceive it as different?

Grover Cleveland Backster Jr., was an interrogation specialist for the Central Intelligence Agency, who became well known for his experiments with plants using a lie-detector machine. Through his research, he believed that plants feel pain and have extrasensory perception (ESP). His work became quite popular, only to be rejected by the mainstream scientific community in the same way that parapsychology is today, despite statistically significant results that rival that of hard sciences. Human intention experiments have been taking place for decades. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of peer-reviewed publications that have examined the mind-matter connection with some very interesting results. His work on this was published in the International Journal of Parapsychology. 

One fairly recent example comes from a study conducted by scientists at National Kaohsiung Normal University, National Taiwan University, and the Institute of Noetic Sciences. They reference a previous experiment which suggested that “consumption of intentionally treated tea influenced subjective mood under double-blind, controlled conditions.” The study used Arabidopsis thaliana seeds (a commonly used wild type of seed that belongs to the Brassica family, which includes cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower), and measured differences in hypocotyl length, anthocyanin, and chlorophyll between seeds hydrated with intentionally treated vs. untreated water. You can read more about that here.

A study published in the American Journal of Chinese Medicine demonstrated that a woman with special abilities was able to significantly accelerate the germination of specific seeds for the purposes of developing a more robust seed stock. You can read more about that and access the study here.

According to Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma and The Botany of Desire:

They (plants) have ways of taking all the sensory data they gather in their everyday lives, integrate it and then behave in an appropriate way in response. And they do this without brains, which, in a way, is what’s incredible about it, because we automatically assume you need a brain to process information.

It’s interesting because for consciousness to thrive and exist, based on my research, a brain or any type of biology for that matter is not needed. I believe all life forms possess consciousness, regardless of their biological make-up.

Here’s a TED talk on how trees talk to each-other.

How I Deal With This Realization

I take a spiritual perspective because to be honest, I don’t want to hurt anything I perceive as a living, sentient, feeling, or experiential. Ultimately, at certain levels of existence, I believe any type of nourishment from ‘food’ sources is not really required. I’m not the only one, there are real live examples of this and scholars like Nikola Tesla who believed the same thing. You can read more about that here.

To deal with this conundrum I found myself in, I referred to indigenous spiritual wisdom, something that has always resonated deeply with me, and at the same time, corroborate with much of my research. Rita Laws, Ph.D., explains the tremendous amount of respect these communities had towards animals, explaining how her own people, the Choctaw Indians of Mississippi and Oklahoma, vegetables were the traditional diet, and all homes were constructed of wood, mud, bark, and cane – not skins. She explains how they, among many other tribes, had a predominantly vegetarian diet prior to European colonization.

Perhaps one of the most interesting revelations shared by her experience and research is the fact that “more than one tribe has creation legends which describe people as a vegetarian, living in a kind of Garden of Eden. A Cherokee legend describes humans, plants, and animals as having lived in the beginning in ‘equality and mutual helpfulness.’”

She describes how the world changed and goes on to explain how “the needs of all were met without killing one another. When man became aggressive and ate some of the animals, the animals invented diseases to keep the human population in check. The plants remained friendly, however, and offered themselves not only as food to man but also as medicine, to combat the new diseases.”

She spoke of a kind of soul contract that exists today, where some animals are providing themselves, and sacrificing themselves for humanity in order to teach us a lesson…

“In the past, and in more than a few tribes, meat-eating was a rare activity, certainly not a daily event. Since the introduction of European meat-eating customs, the introduction of the horse and the gun, and the proliferation of alcoholic beverages and white traders, a lot has changed.”

You can watch that full lecture and read more about it here, it’s where the quotes come from.

Today, animals are raised and killed for slaughter, they are not thanked for their sacrifice, the eldest of the herd is not taken, and they are clearly not volunteering themselves.

When it comes to animals, it’s no different to torturing, killing and depriving a human of their family and loved ones. This is what we are doing today, and in no way does this represent what it means to be a human being but instead shows a complete lack of empathy, love and morality. Plants, for now, I take the perspective that they are offering themselves, quite advanced souls who are playing a role for humanity.

There is a giant holocaust happening on the planet.

I want to stay away from ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ here, and simply convey that at the deepest, most spiritual and metaphysical levels of existence, all is serving, all those who are suffering (animals) are actually benefiting humanity at this time, they are opening our eyes to what we no longer want to experience.

Currently, as a vegan, I can definitely say that with the awareness that plants are also sentient beings, there is a MUCH different feeling eating them compared to animals. It doesn’t feel heavy, the vibe doesn’t seem unhealthy, but rather nourishing. There is a far different energy, and a far greater impact on the planet when you eat animals.


The idea that plants have feelings and emotions too, does in no way justify meat-eating. This does not mean meat-eating is wrong, and labelling it as wrong is perhaps the incorrect approach when it comes to advocating change in human lifestyle that serves the individual, as well as the collective. Our job is to step outside of our current Earth experience, and observe it from a neutral standpoint and feel what intuitively resonates with our hearts. We’ve been subject to so much programming that most of the time, our thoughts, feelings and actions are influenced by outside entities. To truly know how we feel, we have to eliminate concepts of the mind like ‘right’ and ‘wrong.’ That being said, these are simple, most of the time, great descriptions on how to describe what resonates with our heart, and what doesn’t.

You’re not a bad person, or a terrible human if you eat meat, so don’t let anybody ever make you feel that way. At the same time, if you do eat meat, can you understand the perspective of the Vegan activist? There is a reason our planet is shifting towards a more plant-based lifestyle and perhaps that’s because this is what’s natural, and that what we’ve been taught by big food is not…

The pineal gland has been known as the ‘seat of soul’ for hundreds of years. Could fluoride, a ubiquitous vector of toxicity in the modern world, actually be calcifying this gland and literally turning it to stone? Research published in 2001 showed that fluoride (F) deposits in the pineal gland with age and is associated with enhanced gland calcification. Eleven aged cadavares were dissected and their pineal glands assayed:

 “There was a positive correlation between pineal F[luoride] and pineal Ca[lcium] (r = 0.73, p<0.02) but no correlation between pineal F and bone F. By old age, the pineal gland has readily accumulated F and its F/Ca ratio is higher than bone.”

This is the not the first research to implicate fluoride in contributing to so-called ectopic calcification, or the calcification of soft tissue. We address this in a previous report on the potential for fluoride to calcifiy the arteries.

The Discovery

Research published in 2001 showed that fluoride (F) deposits in the pineal gland with age and is associated with enhanced gland calcification. Eleven aged cadavares were dissected and their pineal glands assayed:

 “There was a positive correlation between pineal F[luoride] and pineal Ca[lcium] (r = 0.73, p<0.02) but no correlation between pineal F and bone F. By old age, the pineal gland has readily accumulated F and its F/Ca ratio is higher than bone.”

This is the not the first research to implicate fluoride in contributing to so-called ectopic calcification, or the calcification of soft tissue. We address this in a previous report on the potential for fluoride to calcifiy the arteries.

What Is The Pineal Gland?

The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain, and is sometimes called the “third eye” as it is a light-sensitive, centrally-located organ with cellular features resembling the human retina.

One article describes the role of the pineal gland in more technical terms here:

“The role of the nonvisual photoreception is to synchronise periodic functions of living organisms to the environmental light periods in order to help survival of various species in different biotopes.” [Source]

The pineal gland is best known for its role in producing the hormone melatonin from serotonin (triggered by the absence of light) and affects wake/sleep patterns and seasonal/circadian rhythms. Like a tiny pea-sized pine cone it is located near the center of the brain, between the two hemispheres and is a unique brain structure insofar as it is not protected by the blood-brain-barrier. This may also explain why it is uniquely sensitive to calcification via fluoride exposure.

More Than An Endocrine Gland

Technically the mammalian pineal gland is neural tissue, and the cells within the pineal gland – the pinealocytes – have characteristics that resemble the photorecetpor cells in the retina.

This has given rise to the opinion that it should be reclassified:

“In our opinion, the main trend of today’s literature on pineal functions–only considering the organ as a common endocrine gland–deviates from this structural and histochemical basis.” [Source]

The pineal gland has been a subject of much interest since ancient times. Galen described it in the 3rd century, and the philosopher René Descartes (1596-1650) identified the pineal gland as the “seat of the soul.” His explanation for this conclusion is quite interesting:

My view is that this gland is the principal seat of the soul, and the place in which all our thoughts are formed. The reason I believe this is that I cannot find any part of the brain, except this, which is not double. Since we see only one thing with two eyes, and hear only one voice with two ears, and in short have never more than one thought at a time, it must necessarily be the case that the impressions which enter by the two eyes or by the two ears, and so on, unite with each other in some part of the body before being considered by the soul. Now it is impossible to find any such place in the whole head except this gland; moreover it is situated in the most suitable possible place for this purpose, in the middle of all the concavities; and it is supported and surrounded by the little branches of the carotid arteries which bring the spirits into the brain.”[Source]

Descartes was one of the few philosophers who was experienced in vivisection and anatomy, and who rightly pointed out the unique nature of the pineal gland’s location in the brain and blood supply.

The “third eye” is also a well-known symbol in Eastern literature, and may be concretely grounded in the anatomical structure and function of the pineal gland.

Calcium Stones In the Brain

Pineal gland calcifications upon dissection resemble gravel, and are composed of calcite (calcium carbonate) and/or calcium hydroxylapatite, the latter of which is not unlike dentin or bone. [Source]

Pineal gland calcification is associated with a number of diseases in the medical literature:

  1. Alzheimer Disease
  2. Bipolar Disease
  3. Circadian Dysregulation
  4. Hormone Imbalances: Low Melatonin
  5. Insomnia
  6. Low Back Pain
  7. Parkinson Disease
  8. Schizophrenia
  9. Sleep Disorders
  10. Stroke

Fluoride As A “Therapeutic” Neurotoxin?

Now that it has been established that fluoride (F) exposure contributes to the calcification of the pineal gland, the question remains: what are the subjective affects of these tissue changes to those who undergo them?

Prozac may represent an archetypal example of how fluoride affects the personality/soul. This drug (chemical name fluoxetine) is approximately 30% fluoride by weight and marketed as an “antidepressant,” even while a major side effect of its use and/or withdrawal is suicidal depression.  Modern psychiatry often treats depressive disorders – the “dark night of the soul” – as an organic disorder of the brain, targeting serotonin reuptake by any chemical means necessary. Fluoride and fluoxetine, in fact,  may accomplish their intended “therapeutic effects” by poisoning the pineal gland.  Animal studies confirm that when mice have their pineal glands removed they no longer respond to fluoxetine.  [Source]

Perhaps the primary reason why Prozac causes a favorable reaction in those who are treated (poisoned) with it, is that it disassociates that person from the psychospiritual conflicts that they must normally suppress in order to maintain the appearance of sanity and functionality in society, i.e. it is control and not health that is the goal of such “treatment.”

If Prozac and other sources of fluoride in our environment deposits within the pineal gland, accelerating the transformation of functional pineal tissue into calcification, is it possible that it works by dehumanizing and flattening the effect of those who are under its influence?

How Do We Prevent Pineal Gland Calcification?

Eliminating exposure to fluoride is the #1 priority.  We can start by being careful about surreptitious forms of fluoride in Teflon, foods and beverages produced with municipal water, tap water, infant formula, fluoride containing drugs like Prozac, toothpaste, etc. We have collected a number of studies from the US National Library of Medicine on natural substances which mitigate fluoride toxicity.  We also have a section on our database dedicated to finding substances which prevent or reverse other forms of pathological calcification which may have relevance for pineal gland calcification, such as ectopic calcification. Lastly, there is research on the potential value of magnesium and phytate in reducing pineal gland calcification.

Flouride has a wide range of adverse effects. We have indexed over 60 diseases linked to this ubiquitious toxicant on the GreenMedInfo database. But based on the research presented here one new way of describing it’s adverse effects is as a “calcifier of the soul.”
