Henrietta Lacks was a sharecropper from the deep South who developed cervical cancer in the 1950s.Her very aggressive tumor was harvested and the cells were cultured, revealing themselves to be "immortal" -- meaning they did not die in a glass container and were able to continue to replicate.Thus the first immortal human cell line was born. "The Way of All Flesh" is an Adam Curtiss documentary about HeLa cells -- used throughout the scientific world today and a component of modern vaccines. One woman's cancer has found its way into eternity.
It rained a strange kind of silvery material, the "authorities" barraged residents with alert messages, including one for Thursday of the same week! ... Transformers on utility poles burning, as well as junction boxes. The fires took homes and people along with them; no natural warning whatsoever.
This is a very informative video. Slow it down to .75 speed (see gear icon at bottom of YouTube panel, but you might have to go to YouTube to do this) and you will be able to follow more comfortably. The information is not comforting, though!
A British study (though a bit dated) compares/details nutrient loss in foods from the 1940s to 1991. Just an example: You would have to eat 10 tomatoes grown in 1991 for the copper content of one tomato grown in 1940. Imagine what the difference is today! No wonder the world is seeing staggering obesity, as this is also thought to be a micronutrient problem -- people eat more quantity because the body is really looking for nutrients. Go through the study here; it contains a lot of great information! Quote: Minerals are what we are made of ... an amalgam of "stuff" of the earth and a quality often understood as "life force."It is improbable that we can function at our optimum on a physical, mental and emotional level if the foods we have available to us are deficient in vital minerals and trace elements.
We know that micronutrient deficiency leads to degenerative disease as well as obesity, but our mental/emotional health appears to suffer as well. Naturally, all this dysfunction sends us in the direction of modern innovative solutions (new markets and industries): the doctor's office, energy drinks, even fast food outlets. If we could only get our real food back!
Sadly, a new innovation in commercial fishing is to use electric shocks to force fish to jump into nets. Called pulse fishing, it is already banned by many countries but is being nonetheless pushed by commercial fishing interests. Quote from Dr. Mercola's newsletter:Electric pulse fishing has already been banned in China, Vietnam, Brazil, the U.S. and Uruguay because of concerns that it harms or kills most fish while degrading habitat. Again, proponents paint pulse fishing as using weak electric pulses to gently startle fish into nets.
The reality, however, is much more severe; the current used is the same as that used by electroshock weapons like Tasers ... "This type of current causes such violent, uncontrolled convulsions that 50 to 70 percent of large cods are left with a fractured spine and internal bleedingafter the shock." Reportedly favorable research supporting pulse fishing has focused on the economic performance of fishing vessels(i.e., reduced fuel costs) while ignoring the potentially devastating consequences on ecosystems.
