Science has poo-pooed the effect of environmental toxins for years citing that the miniscule concentrations of toxins couldn’t possibly cause harm to the human body. Everything from GMOs to toxins in vaccines were ignored based on this premise. New science reveals though that the environment can not only effect the human body but it can change DNA and contribute to diseases. Now that there’s proof, it’s time to get the crap out of our lives. -David Granovsky HOW ENVIRONMENT CONTRIBUTES TO SEVERAL HUMAN DISEASES National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Using a new imaging technique, researchers have found that the biological machinery that builds DNA can insert molecules into the DNA strand that are damaged as a result of environmental exposures. These damaged molecules trigger cell death that produces some human diseases, according to the researchers. The work provides a possible explanation for how one type of DNA damage may lead to cancer, diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular and lung disease, and Alzheimer’s disease… Samuel Wilson, M.D., senior NIEHS researcher on the team, explained that the damage is caused by oxidative stress, or the generation of free oxygen molecules, in response to environmental factors, such as ultraviolet exposure, diet, and chemical compounds in paints, plastics, and other consumer products… “When one of these oxidized nucleotides is placed into the DNA strand, it can’t pair with the opposing nucleotide as usual, which leaves a gap in the DNA,” Wilson said. “Until this paper, no one had actually seen how the polymerase did it or understood the downstream implications.” http://www.niehs.nih.gov/news/newsroom/releases/2014/november25/index.cfm http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/11/141125101703.htm

“Beginning in about 1990, the treatment of cardiovascular disease experienced major conceptual expansions through the application of new therapeutic paradigms targeted to angiogenesis and tissue healing. Initial strategies involved administering proteins involved in healing processes, then the genes that encoded them, and then, by the end of the decade, the use of stem cells to better achieve these objectives.” -‘Stem Cell Therapy in Cardiovascular Disease: Past Obstacles and Promising New Directions‘, genengnews.com
Adult Stem Cell Evolution At A Glance
Author: Sarah Hoffman
I know many people think that what we know about stem cells is all we have ever known. This is a misconception arising from the fact that people in the United States do not discuss the topic because it could be considered a political no-no-topic. In reality, many scientists from all over the earth research adult stem cells and are finding ways to use them that was never before imaginable. They are also perfecting ways in which we use them to treat patience with varying ailments. This article focuses on cardiovascular diseases.
Scientists began by trying varying methods of stem cell treatment, from utilizing many different types of cells at a time to using very specific cells. Through many studies and trial and error, scientists found that intravenous injection of stem cells to treat many cardiac ailments was effective, efficient, and affordable.
So it seems to me that a routine stem cell treatment may soon be available to cardiac patients.
Take a gander at the whole article and I know some more of your questions are sure to be answered!

Real Life Fight Club… Kind Of
Author: Sarah Hoffman
“Many patients with heart problems – such as heart disease or angina – may need to undergo cardiac surgery in order to restore or improve blood flow. But a new study suggests that the procedure may offer so much more; stem cells in fat discarded during cardiac surgery could be injected back into the patient’s heart to further improve its function.” – Beyond the Dish ‘Heart Function Improved by Injecting Discarded Surgery Fat’
So it looks like Tyler Durden (from Fight Club) was right… kind of. There is a better use for that unwanted, liposuctioned belly fat than just being toxic waste. Scientists have discovered that the belly fat that many of us have (that we really don’t want or need) can be used to improve the functionality of our hearts. This procedure would require liposuction pre-cardiac-surgery, however, scientists are looking into the possibility of using similar fat that builds up around the heart that, conveniently, is removed during the surgery anyway. Wam-Bam-Thank you ma’am
This seems only too fitting, as many young people experiencing cardiac distress may be experiencing it because they have a good amount of this fat to spare. Well, fret no more, because what doesn’t kill us does make us stronger.
All jokes aside this does seem like the circle of life modernized. The fat that could be killing us can be used to save us once it has already begun to kill us. Make sense? No? Well think of it this way… While surgeons are inside of someone’s chest trying to save them from a heart attack, they are also removing excess fat from around the heart– which is part of the reason this person is in this situation to begin with. In the near future doctors may be able to, in one surgery, remove this fat, isolate the stem cells, and inject them back into the heart to have a positive effect post surgery. This could increase blood flow out of the left ventricle and result in “greater ventricular movement”. So the fat that is hurting our heart can now be removed and the stem cells in it put back with basically the opposite effect it had originally. But in the mean time, it seems very likely that we will be able to save some of that liposuctioned fat and use it during cardiac surgery to improve heart function.
Pretty futuristic if you ask me. It’s also nice to know that Tyler Durden wasn’t completely crazy… kind of.

“Researchers have grown part of an eye in a lab dish, using a type of stem cell made from a piece of skin.
They said the little retina started growing and developing on its own — an important step towards creating custom-tailored organs in the lab.”
Earlier this month scientists successfully created a functioning human retina using iPSCs (induced pluripotent stem cells). But that’s not the cool part. What’s actually amazing is that they did very little to make this happen.
Wait what?! Ok let me explain. These researchers took some of these cells from a tiny little piece of human skin, basically rewound time as far as these cells are concerned and pushed them back to a more-or-less embryonic state, sent signals to some genes manipulating them to form a retina, and then let it do it’s thing. And it was a success! This little retina is living in a dish just sensing light and being a badass little organ. Even the scientists didn’t realize this would happen so naturally
For Best Results: Increase Gut Bacteria
“A healthy and balanced diet, as well as probiotics, have been known to be helpful in preserving gastrointestinal health for quite a long time. But it is only recently that the underlying mechanisms have become somewhat clearer. A rapidly increasing body of knowledge promises to further clarify the effects of our daily food on the gut microbiota and to indicate more targeted applications of probiotics in the near future. This was one of the topics presented at the Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit in Miami, FL, USA. On March 8-9, 2014, internationally leading experts discussed the latest advances in gut microbiota research and its impact on health.” -‘Feeding gut microbiota: Nutrition, probiotics key factors for digestive health.’ ScienceDaily
We’ve all heard of probiotics and their dietary benefits. Now let’s use that knowledge and put it to good use when it comes to stem cell transplantation. According to the article we posted earlier, increased gut microbiota can increase the success and survival rate of patients post transplant. Now here’s the big question… ‘how do we increase these helpful suckers early and get them working ASAP?!’ Well, you probably guessed it– eating foods rich in probiotics (such as yogurt) is one way to do this! Click the links and find out why you should be feeding the little helpers alive in your gut and how to increase their diversity– and increase your chances of success!!
Gut Bacteria= Stronger Stem Cell Response
“The diversity of bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract of patients receiving stem cell transplants may be an important predictor of their post-transplant survival, researchers report. Researchers found a strong connection between post-transplant gut microbiota diversity and outcomes, observing overall survival rates of 36 percent, 60 percent, and 67 percent among the low, intermediate, and high diversity groups, respectively.” – ‘Gut bacteria predict survival after stem cell transplant, study shows.’ ScienceDaily
I always believed it, now there’s proof!
WHY? Maybe because…
Stem cells are a natural healing system in the body that regenerate dead and damaged tissue and create new tissue– they require nutrients to do so. Gut bacteria helps digest food and derive nutrients for the entire body. More gut bacteria means a stronger immune system which means a greater ability to fight infection; more nutrients available for use as building blocks, to repair nutrients, etc. This results in increased potential benefits from stem cell therapy.
15 years ago, modern science was confronted with the premise that HEART type cells could regenerate, overturning hundreds of years of empirical knowledge including over 400 years of clinical trial results (The first clinical trial of a novel therapy was conducted unintentionally by the Renaissance surgeon Ambroise Parè in 1537). Ask your doctor if heart cells can regenerate. There is still ENORMOUS resistance.
10 years ago, modern science was confronted with the premise that BRAIN type cells could regenerate, overturning hundreds of years of empirical knowledge including over 400 years of clinical trial results. Ask your doctor if brain cells can regenerate. There is still ENORMOUS resistance.
3 days ago Duke researchers published a study in the peer reviewed journal Nature about how they “found a new type of neuron in the adult brain that is capable of telling stem cells to make more new neurons.”
While this is incredible news, science is still moving too slowly for those suffering from chronic and terminal diseases, dementia, TBI and other neurological disorders. Is it time to revamp the system? Is it time to approach healing and science with the premise that the human body has regenerative capabilities and we should tap into those systems to heal disorders instead of treating symptoms far removed from the original disorders? What other premises are in place which are blocking medical advancements?
A story from Zen Buddhism:
Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor’s cup full, and then kept on pouring. The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. “It is overfull. No more will go in!” “Like this cup,” Nan-in said, “you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?”
Regenerative medicine is a new frontier. Already around for decades, most have yet to recognize it as the huge paradigm shift which necessitates our emptier our cups and approaching medicine from a completely new perspective. A new perspective which includes an empty cup.
Is your thinking, holding you back?
Let’s be careful out there guys. While every word in the below article MAY be true, there is no association whatsoever between this list and John Hopkins. The first clue is that there are no references, no footnotes, no backlinks. Then you go to Hopkins and see they have called it a hoax – http://m.hopkinsmedicine.org/kimmel_cancer_center/news_events/featured/cancer_update_email_it_is_a_hoax.html and finally, Snopes shoots it down -
What’s very frustrating to me is that the dissemination of unreferenced data damages the hard work of “non-traditional” healers and healing techniques and makes anything with “alternative”, “holistic”, “natural”, etc seem to be a scam via guilt by association. Is there truth in the above? Maybe, but finding it out just got set back significantly as the baby gets thrown out with the bathwater.
Science is a tool. It’s neither good nor evil. And there are many, many studies showing huge benefits from “alternative”, “holistic”, “natural”, therapies. Science is also slow and there typically needs to be a huge $ sign and a mass producible and patentable pill at the end of the road (7-10 yrs and $250 million) for a study/trial to happen. These are some of the reasons stem cell treatments are taking so long to get into mainstream Western medicine. http://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/why-no-stem-cells-in-the-us Part1/
Techniques described as “alternative”, “holistic” and “natural” are essentially working with a huge handicap on many levels. I am all for ‘changing the system’ as it is fundamentally broken. http://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/why-are-there-still-no-stem-cells-in-the-us Part2/ but this is not the way. Ultimately, sharing this info without references damages those looking for real healing options.
Big Hospital Finally telling the truth about Cancer, Johns Hopkins
LATEST CANCER INFORMATION
from Johns Hopkins
AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY …
1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.
3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.
What cancer cells feed on:
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note:Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.
b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.
To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water–best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.
14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.
Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.
Why the FDA should be charged with murder
By Jon Rappoport
May 16, 2014
If you worked for a federal agency that was killing people at the rate of 100,000 a year, every year, like clockwork, and if you knew it, wouldn’t you feel compelled to say or do something about it?
At the FDA, which is, in fact, killing Americans at that rate, no one has ever felt the need to step forward and speak up.
Let’s shift the venue and ask the same question. If you were a medical reporter for a major media outlet in the US, and you knew the above fact, wouldn’t you make it a priority to say something, write something, do something?
I’m talking about people like Sanjay Gupta (CNN, CBS), Gina Kolata (NY Times), Tim Johnson (ABC News), and Thomas Maugh II (LA Times).
And with that, let’s go to the smoking guns. The citation is: BMJ June 7, 2012 (BMJ 2012:344:e3989). Author, Jeanne Lenzer.
Lenzer refers to a report by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices: “It calculated that in 2011 prescription drugs were associated with two to four million people in the US experiencing ‘serious, disabling, or fatal injuries, including 128,000 deaths.'”
The report called this “one of the most significant perils to humans resulting from human activity.”
And here is the final dagger. The report was compiled by outside researchers who went into the FDA’s own database of “serious adverse [medical-drug] events.”
Therefore, to say the FDA isn’t aware of this finding would be absurd. The FDA knows. The FDA knows and it isn’t saying anything about it, because the FDA certifies, as safe and effective, all the medical drugs that are routinely maiming and killing Americans.
Previously, I have documented that the FDA knows; because the FDA has a page on its own website that admits 100,000 people are killed every year by medical drugs, and two million more people are severely injured by the drugs. (Google “FDA Why Learn About Adverse Drug Reactions”)
And for the past five years or so, I have been writing about and citing a published report by the late Dr. Barbara Starfield that indicates 106,000 people in the US are killed by medical drugs every year. Until her death in 2011, Dr. Starfield worked at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Her report, “Is US health really the best in the world?”, was published in the Journal of American Medical Association on July 26, 2000.
Since the Department of Homeland Security is working its way into every nook and corner of American life, hyper-extending its mandate to protect all of us from everything, why shouldn’t I go along with Janet Napolitano’s advice: see something, say something.
This is what I see and this is what I’m saying. Maybe DHS would like to investigate the FDA as a terrorist organization.
How many smoking guns do we need before a sitting president shuts down the FDA buildings, fumigates the place, and prosecutes very large numbers of FDA employees?
Do we need 100,000 smoking guns every year? Do we need relatives of the people who’ve all died in the span of merely a year, from the poisonous effects of FDA-approved medical drugs, to bring their corpses to the doors of FDA headquarters?
And let me ask another question. If instead of drugs like warfarin, dabigatran, levofloxacin, carboplatin, and lisinopril (the five leading killers in the FDA database), the 100,000 deaths per year were led by gingko, ginseng, vitamin D, niacin, and raw milk, what do you think would happen?
I’ll tell you what would happen. SEALS, Delta Force, SWAT teams, snipers, predator drones, tanks, and infantry would be attacking every health-food store in America. The resulting fatalities would be written off as necessary collateral damage in the fight to keep America safe and healthy.
All those phony stories in the press, reported dutifully by so-called medical reporters? The stories about maybe-could-be-possible-miracle breakthroughs just over the horizon of state-of-the-art medical research? Those stories are there to obscure the very, very hard facts of medically-caused death on the ground.
The buck stops at the FDA.
Except in the real world, it doesn’t. Which tells you something about the so-called real world and how much of it is composed of propaganda.
Here is the situation. No medical drug in the US can be released for public use unless and until the FDA says it is safe and effective. That’s the rule. The FDA is spitting out drug approvals month after month and year after year, and the drugs are routinely killing 100,000 people a year and maiming two million more, which adds up to a million deaths per decade and 20 million maimings per decade. The FDA and the federal government are doing nothing about it, even though they know what’s going on. This is mass murder. Not accidental death. Murder. A holocaust.
