According to Natural News, magnesium plays the same important role that calcium or iron does for the body, but very few Americans are aware of it. Nonetheless, adequate magnesium levels are crucial for brain, cardiac and muscle function, and it is needed, along with silica and vitamins D and K, to promote bone health. Magnesium deficiency is more common than many people suspect, and below are five warning signs that could indicate a deficiency in this important mineral.
- Ringing in the Ears or Hearing Loss: Tinnitus or a constant, high-pitched ringing in the ears is a common symptom of magnesium deficiency, as is hearing loss. There are a number of studies that have been done on the relationship between ear health and sufficient magnesium levels. In one Chinese study, it was found that magnesium in sufficient quantities will prevent the formation of the free radicals that can lead to hearing loss.
- Muscle Cramps or Tremors: Magnesium is crucial to optimum muscle function. Without it, the body would be in a state of convulsion, because it is this mineral that allows the muscles to relax.
- Depression: The link between low magnesium levels and depression was understood over a century ago, when doctors would use it to treat this mental health disorder. Modern science has backed this up, with a study at a psychiatric hospital in Croatia finding that many attempted suicide patients had severely low levels of this important mineral.
- Abnormal Heart Function: Low magnesium levels can have an effect on muscles throughout the body, and this includes the heart muscles. Insufficient magnesium can induce a condition known as a cardiac arrhythmia, in which the heart fails to beat regularly, and this, in turn, can cause a greater risk for complications like heart attacks and strokes.
- Kidney Stones: Many people believe that kidney stones are caused by an excess of calcium, but in fact it is a lack of magnesium that is the culprit. Magnesium prevents the formation of these stones by inhibiting the binding of calcium with oxalate, the two compounds which make up these stones.

Non-smokers have no sympathy for smokers, but half of all smokers would quit – if they only knew how! There are roughly 45 million smokers just in the United States and nobody seems to feel sorry for them, at all. Research reveals that half of all smokers would quit, if they knew how, but more than 95% of smokers who try to quit without help will return to smoking within six months.
People who don’t smoke all say the same thing about smokers: “They know how bad it is for their health, so they should quit.” But quitting cold turkey is for only the super-strong willed, because if you want to climb a “mountain,” you need the right shoes, some gear and a good guide. But most cessation programs are very BAD guides, in fact, they’re not guides at all, but just gimmicks. Most quit smoking programs are sold to…

According to Natural News, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Agriculture (USDA) are preparing to approve a powerful new herbicide, as well as three genetically modified organisms (GMOs) engineered to resist it, that has not been adequately examined for either safety or effectiveness. And at least 50 members of Congress have written a letter to the two agencies, urging them to reject the chemical concoction, known as Enlist Duo, which threatens to increase 2, 4-D usage by as much as 700 percent, leading to massive environmental and human health destruction.
Final approval for Enlist Duo and the three GMOs has yet to be granted, but the two agencies have made clear their intent to ignore the more than 300,000 public comments they’ve received so far, most of which are in opposition to the chemical products, by approving them anyway. The EPA and USDA are also ignoring the complete lack of science behind the products, which will only increase chemical usage and further the spread of weeds and pests that are resistant to both glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, and 2,4-D, a component of the chemical weapon Agent Orange.
The 50 members of Congress who oppose Enlist Duo and the three GMOs expressed their “grave concern” about “the multiple adverse human health, environmental, agronomic and socioeconomic harms that approval of 2,4-D crops will likely cause” in a letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, the founder and former chair of the Governor’s Biotechnology Partnership. The letter also noted that the USDA’s own Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) projects a massive increase in 2,4-D usage by 2020 as a result of Enlist Duo approval.

Agent Orange Food Disorder, AOFD, is an ongoing mutation of cells from consuming pesticide regularly. In other words, it is the cumulative effect of consuming toxins over time. This type of cancer is not contagious and is not inherited; rather, it is created inside the body and perpetuated, until it’s often too late to defeat, or so “chronic care management” would want us to believe.

How trustworthy is the CDC? Another government institution that failed to live up to its reputation!
According to Natural News, a Florida congressman known for taking on corruption in the political establishment is calling for a full investigation of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which was recently exposed for concealing data linking the MMR vaccine with autism. Congressman Bill Posey from Florida’s 8th District says the CDC simply can’t be trusted to honestly investigate vaccine safety, because the agency has an “incestuous relationship” with the vaccine industry.
Known as “Mr. Accountability,” Rep. Posey told vaccine industry watchdog Dr. Brian Hooker, Ph.D., during a recent interview that the CDC has an extensive history of vaccine industry infiltration. From scam artist Dr. Poul Thorsen, the CDC researcher who was indicted for stealing grant money awarded by the agency for autism research, to Dr. Julie Gerberding, the current president of Merck’s vaccine division who used to be a director at the CDC, this agency that is supposed to be looking out for the interests of the American people is nothing but a gatekeeper for vaccine industry interests.
Concerning Thorsen’s role in supposedly vetting the safety of vaccines, Rep. Posey says this corrupt Danish researcher collaborated with the CDC on some 36 papers claiming that vaccines are safe, as opposed to just the one claimed by current CDC Director of the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD), Dr. Coleen A. Boyle. This means that the entire repository of studies claimed by the CDC as evidence that vaccines do not cause autism was manipulated and distorted to protect the vaccine industry.

The closest thing was a 2004 study published in the journal Pediatrics, which was recently exposed as a fraud since the original sample size was altered to change the study’s results. A CDC whistleblower came forward to confess this fraud, revealing in the process that the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine, which the CDC claims has been proven safe, actually does increase a child’s risk of autism.
“The CDC can’t be trusted regarding investigating vaccine safety. Huge conflict of interest. I think the CDC should be investigated,” concluded Rep. Posey.

Why did the nine justices cancel President Obama’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board!?
According to Western Journalism, in a rare unanimous decision, all nine justices of the U.S. Supreme Court agreed with the outcome in NLRB v. Canning. The Supreme Court found that President Obama’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) were unconstitutional.
The facts of the case involved a soft drink distributor, Noel Canning Company, which had been found by the NLRB to have committed certain unfair labor practices. The finding of unfair practices, however, was rendered by an NLRB that contained three appointees who had been placed on the labor board by President Obama using what he claimed was his recess appointment power. His claim of this power has now been found to have no lawful basis; the appointments have been nullified.
Besides agreeing that Obama’s appointments were unconstitutional, the justices also agree that the normal method of appointment requires Senate approval of the president’s nominations. Principal offices in the government should not be filled by executive action alone but instead with the concurrence of the Senate. Moreover, all nine justices agree that the Constitution does provide for the president to “fill up all Vacancies that may have happened during the Recess of the Senate…” [Article II, Sec. 2, clause 3]—the recess appointment power.

Obama, the man who promised free and affordable healthcare, has crippled the masses with “careless” healthcare and a system which you can’t even log onto and get forthright information and secure real healthcare.

According to The Atlantic, there are currently 84 bills on GMO labeling in 29 states, as well as dueling bills in Congress.Vermont State Senator Bobby Starr, a Democrat, represents a remote, rural district on the Canadian border. For the past couple of years, everywhere he went, everyone from villagers at their annual town meeting to children at a school assembly wanted to talk about genetically modified organisms in their food.
The people bringing it up weren’t outside agitators or stereotypical Vermont hippies. “They were just ordinary citizens,” Starr told The Atlantic recently. “I’ve lived here all my life basically to this point, so I know them.” Though Starr, a farmer and former truck driver, had previously chaired the senate’s agriculture committee for more than a decade, he had no strong feelings one way or the other about the idea of requiring labeling of genetically modified, or GM, ingredients. He’d always looked out for farmers, and they were mostly against labeling. But it was clear what his constituents wanted. “I’ve always been pretty good at remembering who I represent,” he said.

Traditional healers often use ginger to treat ailments ranging from nausea to arthritis pain. Recent studies highlight another use for ginger, the amelioration of the impact of parabens, a chemical widely used in the food and beverage industry and as a preservative in personal care products, drugs, and cosmetics. Parabens have been in the news recently thanks to studies which indicate that the vast majority of Americans show signs of exposure. If ginger does indeed reduce parabens’ impact, that gives it increased importance as a significant natural health therapy.
In a 2010 study in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, scientists evaluated over 2,500 urine samples from Americans over the age of six and found exposure to methyl parabens in over 99% of the sample and propyl parabens in over 92%.

According to Natural News, the best article yet written on this subject was penned by none other than Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury and former associate editor of The Wall Street Journal.
As Roberts explains (http://www.infowars.com/?p=62008):
“The US government creates whatever new bogeymen and incidents are necessary to further the neoconservative agenda of world hegemony and higher profits for the armaments industry.”
He goes on to provide details:
“If we look around for the terror that the police state and a decade of war has allegedly protected us from, the terror is hard to find. Except for 9/11 itself, assuming we accept the government’s improbable conspiracy theory explanation, there have been no terror attacks on the US. Indeed, as RT pointed out on August 23, 2011, an investigative program at the University of California discovered that the domestic ‘terror plots’ hyped in the media were plotted by FBI agents.
“As there apparently are no real terror plots for this huge workforce to uncover, the FBI justifies its budget, terror alerts, and invasive searches of American citizens by thinking up ‘terror plots’ and finding some deranged individuals to ensnare. For example, the Washington DC Metro bombing plot, the New York city subway plot, the plot to blow up the Sears Tower in Chicago was all FBI brainchilds organized and managed by FBI agents.”
Robert goes on to explain the real motivation behind the war on terror. It’s not to fight terrorism, as has been publicly claimed, but rather to scare Americans into a state of blind obedience to a police state government:
“When I observe the gullibility of my fellow citizens at the absurd ‘terror plots’ that the US government manufactures, it causes me to realize that fear is the most powerful weapon any government has for advancing an undeclared agenda.”
“Apparently, Americans, or most of them, are so ruled by fear that they suffer no remorse from ‘their’ government’s murder and dislocation of millions of innocent people. In the American mind, one billion ‘towel-heads’ have been reduced to terrorists who deserve to be exterminated.”

Guess what’s coming soon to a “theatre” near you? Staged news, crisis, higher priced food and gas, and possibly metro city riots. When the FOOD STAMPS are cut off, there will be chaos in every big city in America, guaranteed. Obama will be the Villian, or the next commander in greed, and the people who are lazy and starving will be looting stores everywhere. Run for the hills! If you’re stuck in city life, you must be prepared for this. This is not doom and gloom news, this is realism. Have plenty of stored organic food. Have plenty of filtered potable water, and even a good water filter that needs NO electricity. Computers and smart phones may be rendered useless. Gas stations will all be dry instantaneously, like during Super Storm Sandy of the Northeast USA recently.
Have registered, legal weapons for self defense in your home, because the NDAA and DHS may send their FEMA cops to your home to confiscate (or try to) your food, as if to help the “war on terror” which we all know is fake. The social engineers of mass paranoia have succeeded in fooling the sheeple, but the health enthusiasts and Natural News enthusiasts all know better:

My neighbors smoke. They seem to have a lot going on in their front yard and driveway every day and they do most of it with a cigarette in their mouth, whether lit or not, doesn’t matter to them. The excitement, it seems, of smoking “soon” is enough to rile them up into activity, and with the cigarette, they buzz around, doing a little in the garden, cleaning their car out, or just playing ball with the dog. This man and woman behave in the same exact manner with a cigarette, going through lots of ritualistic movements, getting ready to smoke or getting stuff done before the nicotine stick is fully smoked. I notice all of this because I want to understand how to help them quit, if there is a way.
There is a famous saying that goes, “Where there is a will, there is a way.” I wonder. How many smokers have the will to quit, when it seems to me that will power is generated by nutrition, and how many smokers in the world practice a lick of it? Most will tell you that they know “good and well” that cigarettes are bad for them, and might even kill them early, but they don’t want to address their eating habits either. So what then? How can the ritual of smoking be rightfully given up if smokers love it, and it’s what gets them motivated, or feeling normal enough to function? Certainly their diet or “lack thereof” isn’t motivating them or driving them to function. Let’s talk about the rituals and how a smoker can simply replace and replenish in order to quit cigarettes.
Replace and replenish – the secret to quitting the smoking ritual
You’ve seen some, you were one, or you are one now – a smoker playing with a cigarette, packing it, moving it from hand to mouth and back to hand, tapping the ashes, flicking them, taking long puffs, long holds, short puffs, short inhales, and blowing tubes of smoke up towards the sky, or in smoke rings, or even out of their nose. You see smokers packing the pack of cigarettes against their palm or a table top. You hear smokers talk funny with lungs full of smoke. You see them think deeply with the smoke in their lungs, waiting to exhale and feel the nicotine kick. You see smokers with a new, unlit cigarette hanging from their lips, or lip, somehow sometimes stuck to the corner of their mouth, like some treat that’s just waiting in the wings for them to partake. But it’s no treat. This is serious. This is “business” as usual for a smoker, who loves the ritual and nurtures it – the very ritual that is crippling their natural motivation, natural will and worst of all, their organic being.
The beginning of quitting is realizing how deep the ritual runs, and then addressing every moment of it. Sounds difficult, but it is rather simple. If you or someone you know smokes a pack a day, that’s about 250 times they repeat their hand to mouth habit, not to mention all the other rituals. Two packs a day means 500 rituals including a change of breathing patterns. Think about that. How do you breathe while smoking? Take the smoke away and start stretching and you might call it yoga.
Now take organic snacks like diced up celery or carrots, raw nuts, dark organic chocolate, dried organic fruits and some spring water, and put that to your mouth and nibble, 250 to 500 times a day, then stretch and breathe and we are NO LONGER DEPENDENT on nicotine to feel good or to feel motivation. There is no “come down,” no let down, and no running to the store for nicotine cancer sticks. The habit ends. The ritual is changed forever, and the negative feelings that come from the 7,000 chemicals in commercial cigarettes just wither away like weeds you stopped watering! Do it. Release yourself from the nicotine prison. It’s time to replace and replenish every little “bad” ritual with a good one, and experience longevity that you inherently “long for” and have since before you ever picked up your first cigarette.
Health is the only wealth – just ask a sick rich person!
