Forgiveness is easy to WANT to do.

Of course we “should” forgive them…but…

There’s often a part of us that says, “No Way” I was wronged, and if I forgive them, I’m condoning the behavior. Continue reading

After detecting life on Mars in 1976 and sweeping it under the rug, NASA banned life-detection experiments to hide the truth from the world

http://

Yes, there is life on Mars, and NASA has known about it for four decades. Their own Viking lander experiment confirmed the presence of life on Mars, but instead of sharing this groundbreaking discovery with the world, NASA chose to bury the truth and hide the science for decades. Continue reading

Latinos Finally Have Access to Telemedicine

(Detroit) – The nurse at the hospital assured Jose Aquila that if he returns tomorrow, they will have a Spanish speaking interpreter or maybe even a Latin care provider. With Spanish as the second most spoken language in the country, it’s not hard to understand Mr. Aguila’s confusion and frustration at being turned away from health care because of language.

What Is Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome?

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a rare condition that appears in at least 1 in 5,000 people worldwide, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Genetics Home Reference. More people became aware of the syndrome in October 2019 when famous singer-songwriter Sia revealed in a series of tweets that she has EDS. Others with EDS responded in droves online, often referring to those in their community as “zebras.” Continue reading

Is a Colonoscopy Worth the Risk?

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Based on the evidence, an international team of experts is recommending routine colonoscopies only if you have a 3% potential of developing a growth in the next 15 years. If it is less, then the pitfalls associated with the procedure are not worth the risks
  • One study found a 17% risk of a missed cancer diagnosis with a colonoscopy. Other risks include perforation of the colon, which is raised when you have anesthesia with the procedure, gut microbial imbalance from preparation for the procedure, equipment contamination from improper sterilization between patients and death from complications
  • David Lewis, Ph.D., states that up to 80% of hospitals sterilize their endoscopes with glutaraldehyde (Cidex), which exacerbates the issue by preserving human tissue in the endoscope picked up during the procedure. The best method of sterilizing the equipment to date is peracetic acid, which will dissolve protein tissue and clear the endoscope
  • You may significantly reduce your risk of colorectal cancer by making lifestyle changes, including reducing or eliminating alcohol and smoking, maintaining a normal weight, eating a high fiber diet and exercising consistently

Vitamin C Lowers Mortality in Severe Sepsis

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Sepsis is a last-ditch effort by your immune system to fight an infection in your body; it can lead to multiple organ failure and death unless promptly treated
  • While viruses, fungi and parasites all have the ability to trigger sepsis, bacterial infections are the most common cause. The most common types of infection triggering sepsis are respiratory and urinary tract infections
  • Each year, an estimated 1 million Americans get sepsis and up to half of them die as a result. The reason for its high mortality rate is because sepsis is often overlooked; many are unfamiliar with its signs and symptoms. It’s also notoriously difficult to treat
  • In 2017, a critical care physician announced the discovery of a simple and inexpensive way to treat sepsis using an intravenous cocktail of vitamin C and thiamine in combination with hydrocortisone
  • A 2019 study using vitamin C only found it lowered mortality risk in patients with severe sepsis, and reduced the number of days spent in intensive care and overall hospital stay

Washing Machines Spreading Deadly Superbugs

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Thirteen newborns in Germany were colonized with a dangerous bacterium after the washing machine used for their personal items began growing Klebsiella oxytoca, a bacterium normally found in the intestines, which may trigger life-threatening lung infections and damage
  • The authors caution those doing laundry for people who are prone to infection, such as those who are immune compromised or the elderly, should take precautions with their machines at home. There are pros and cons to high efficiency top- and front-loaders and to standard top-loading machines
  • Although front-loading washing machines are more prone to the development of toxic mold growth along the rubber gasket seal, even top-loading machines should be cleaned and sanitized routinely to reduce the growth of bacteria and mold, and to prolong the life of the machine
  • While not implicated in the featured study, it bears noting that your dishwasher has the same type of rubber gasket to keep water in the machine and therefore the potential to grow mold and bacteria. Consider cleaning your dishwasher at least every two months to reduce your potential risk of exposure to mold spores

Telling the Truth is a Crime

Sweden has the first feminist government in the world. This means that gender equality is central to the Government’s priorities – in decision-making and resource allocation. Or that is what they pretend. The reality is their policies have made Sweden the rape capital of the world. Feministic policies and decision making has led to a reality where almost a quarter of Swedish women are afraid to leave their homes over fears they will be attacked or sexually assaulted. After a string of four sexual assaults and rapes in the span of five nights, Swedish police in numerous cities advised women to not walk alone at night and to go home early. Continue reading

Children Taken From Parents Who Refuse Vitamin K Shot

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Since 1961, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has recommended that all newborns receive a vitamin K1 injection to prevent vitamin K deficiency bleeding (VKDB), which can be life-threatening
  • Parental refusal of the vitamin K1 injection for their newborn is on the rise, and one study found a correlation between vitamin K1 shot refusal and subsequent vaccine avoidance
  • Children who did not receive the vitamin K shot at birth were also 14.6 times more likely to be unvaccinated at the age of 15 months. The findings were said to offer a means to identify “high-risk” parents that will be prone to not vaccinating their children
  • Parents have had their newborn babies taken from them simply because they declined the vitamin K injection. Several Illinois families have filed a class-action lawsuit against local hospitals, the AAP, the DCFS and several pediatricians
  • The vitamin K1 injection presents unnecessary and avoidable risks. A safe and effective noninvasive way to avoid VKDB is to administer multiple doses of oral vitamin K1
