Hospital drugs routinely get flushed down drains where they pollute water systemsBy Julie Wilson , September 2 2014
(NaturalNews) Over the last decade, larger amounts of pharmaceutical drugs have been detected in the public's water supply; although the concentrations are low, the long-term effects are unknown.
Pharmaceuticals are entering the water system primarily through disposal via flushing, or people's urine. The body breaks down medications, passing the drug's remnants when a person uses the restroom. Livestock farms can also be responsible for polluting the water when antibiotic-treated animals discharge...

Animals are able to judge whether something is fair or notBy David Gutierrez, September 2 2014
(NaturalNews) Humans aren't the only animals that understand the concept of fairness, according to research presented recently at the 122nd Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association.
Fairness is a topic of particular interest to researchers who study the evolution of social behavior and the extent to which cooperation is built into the genes of various animals, including humans. While selfishness might often appear to grant an individual the best chance of propagating its genes...
California water infrastructure on verge of historic collapseBy Jonathan Benson, September 1 2014
(NaturalNews) Water is increasingly hard to come by in drought-stricken California, where many farmers are struggling to get enough water just to pay the bills. But the situation in the Golden State is far worse than many people realize, according to new reports, as underground aquifers that take decades to recharge are being sucked dry, and water infrastructure that has long sustained the agricultural growing regions of the state continue their collapse.

Drought in Spain means massive olive oil shortage in months aheadBy Ethan A. Huff, September 1 2014
(NaturalNews) Futures investors are making an already difficult situation worse in Spain, where unrelenting drought conditions in the world's largest olive-producing country threaten to spike the price of olive oil globally. Reports indicate that this year's olive crop could be down by as much as 40 percent due to a lack of steady rains, which means higher prices at the grocery store for this popular "good" fat.
According to reports, olive trees throughout Spain's Andalusia growing region suffered...
Ground beef prices hit all-time high in USBy Ethan A. Huff, September 1 2014
(NaturalNews) Disingenuous claims by the Obama Administration of widespread economic recovery are blighted by new data recently put forth by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). According to the latest figures, the average price of ground beef in the U.S. has now reached $3.884 per pound, the highest amount ever recorded.
Over the course of just one year, the average price of ground beef has jumped by more than 12 percent, based on the figures, up from $3.459 per pound last July. This represents...
Pope Francis lists 10 ways to lead a happier lifeBy PF Louis, September 1 2014
(NaturalNews) While being interviewed by primarily Catholic Argentina's Viva weekly magazine, Pope Francis listed 10 ways to lead a happier life. Prior to being selected as the Catholic pope in 2013, Pope Francis was going by his birth name, Jorge Maria Bergoglio, while he was a cardinal and the archbishop of Buenos Aires.
As such, he sometimes clashed with Argentina's political leaders. But his selection to Rome's papal seat has inspired the almost 77 percent Catholic population of Argentina...
Gum disease - three ingredient natural home remedyBy Jeanette Padilla, September 1 2014
(NaturalNews) Gum disease affects many people worldwide but most individuals don't know they have some type of gum disease. Swollen gums that are deep red, sensitive to brushing, and easily bleed have a mild form of gum disease, also known as gingivitis. If left untreated, gingivitis can manifest into periodontitis, which is inflammation around the teeth that cause the gums to pull away from the teeth. This creates pockets between the teeth and the gums that is the perfect environment for bacteria...
Babies smell their mothers' fear to learn what to be afraid ofBy David Gutierrez, September 1 2014
(NaturalNews) Mothers may emit odors that teach their babies what to be afraid of, even if the fearful experience is one that the baby has never been exposed to, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Michigan and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The research may help explain a phenomenon that has perplexed scientists for generations: Children may have intense trauma reactions to events that they never experienced, but that their parents...
Prevent skin cancer by avoiding the sun? Not necessarilyBy Reuben Chow, September 1 2014
(NaturalNews) The sun is out for most of us, and exposure to sunlight typically brings with it fears of skin cancer. Many people avoid the sun totally to prevent this fate, but is that a wise choice? The research on how sun exposure, sunburn and skin cancer are linked could surprise many.
Let's examine some facts behind this argument.
First and foremost, you need to be aware that there are different types of skin cancer, and melanoma is the most deadly one, as it tends to spread quickly to...
Study shows shocking rates of undiagnosed malnutrition in older adultsBy L.J. Devon, Staff Writer, September 1 2014
(NaturalNews) A new study investigating seniors' ER visits and corresponding nutrition levels reveals that physician care in the US is out of touch with reality, that there are gaping holes in the nutritional quality of the American food supply and that modern day health insurance plans are an illusion of healthcare.
In the study, practically every elderly patient visited a primary care physician regularly (95 percent), and almost all had a health insurance payment plan (96 percent). But according...
Health Ranger launches 'A Blueprint for Safer Vaccines' - calls for reforming 'barbaric' immunization technologyBy Mike Adams, August 31 2014
(NaturalNews) When CDC scientist Dr. William Thompson recently confessed to scientific fraud for the purpose of hiding links between MMR vaccines and autism, members of the public were outraged. People everywhere are now asking, "Why does the CDC insist in hiding the truth about vaccine side effects?" Why can't they just tell the truth?
The reason is because present-day vaccines are based on a barbaric, outmoded manufacturing technology which subjects all our children to unnecessary risks. But...
U.S. Court rules that biotech corporations can't force grain elevator companies to accept GMOsBy J. D. Heyes, August 31 2014
(NaturalNews) A federal appeals court has ruled that a biotech giant cannot force a grain elevator firm to store a strain of genetically modified corn.
As reported by agriculture website Capital Press, Syngenta attempted to employ a 100-plus-year-old warehouse law to force the elevator company, Bunge, to accept the GM corn. The ruling may preempt other makers of GM seeds and crops from using the same litigation tactic against grain elevators that have refused to harbor crops with altered transgenic...
Despite California's drought, residents are promised access to several times more water than is actually availableBy Ethan A. Huff, August 31 2014
(NaturalNews) There is a major water crisis currently sweeping California, and experts say outdated water allocation data is making the problem even worse. In many areas of the state, say experts, water control measures, many of which were established back in the 1920s and 1930s, have over-promised water that doesn't actually exist, and water regulators are scrambling to make things right as the Golden State limps through one of the worst droughts in recorded history.

Are these familiar foods poisoning you with cadmium?By Carolanne Wright, August 31 2014
(NaturalNews) We normally try our best on a day-to-day basis to make sound food choices and live a clean lifestyle. But sometimes an edible that we think encourages health can actually cause harm. Due to an affinity with heavy metals in the environment, some plants and animals absorb toxins like cadmium more readily than others. In light of this, steering clear of these common foods can help prevent serious problems down the road.
Over the last decade, flax has been embraced as...

(NaturalNews) In 2014 alone, an estimated 233,000 men will receive a prostate cancer diagnosis, and nearly 30,000 of them will die from the disease. Prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer among men worldwide, after lung or bronchial cancer, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American men, according to Cancer.org.
Prostate cancer occurs due to a growth in the prostate gland, which is involved...
The amazing health benefits of fennelBy Sandeep Godiyal, August 31 2014
(NaturalNews) Many Americans today are very health conscious. However, the use of food to help ensure proper health is not as widely known to many Americans. In many countries in Europe and the Far East, the use of food for medicinal purposes is quite common practice. For example, fennel is widely used throughout Greece and Italy in many Mediterranean dishes for its varied health properties.
Fennel and its many uses The fennel plant including the bulb, stalks, leaves and seeds are all edible....
40% of Americans now expected to develop type 2 diabetes during lifetimeBy Mike Bundrant, August 31 2014

The accelerated rate of the disease's occurrence suggests that two out of five average adults in the United States can expect to have type 2 diabetes at some point in their lives.
Over the lengthy course of the research, the lifetime risk...
Use of experimental ebola serum shrouded in veil of government secrecyBy J. D. Heyes, August 31 2014
(NaturalNews) According to the federal government, it had no significant involvement in assisting a pair of American aid workers in West Africa who had managed to obtain an unapproved drug to treat Ebola from a U.S. company, but the stories coming out of the relevant agencies are at best inconsistent.
That's according to Jonathan Easley, writing at the Morning Consult blog, who also said that experts noted that the "non-transparent, strained telling of the government's involvement, and the passive...
It is Illegal to add fluoride to food or salt in the U.SBy Doug Cragoe, August 31 2014
(NaturalNews) In 1909 the Pennsylvania General Assembly passed a law that prohibited the addition of any fluoride chemical to food. By then fluoride was well known as an industrial pollutant that harmed plants, animals, and humans. This was known long before skeletal and dental fluorosis were described in the scientific literature.
In 1945 a brewing company was discovered to be adding a small amount of fluoride to their beer. The FDA had the company prosecuted. The owner got a suspended jail sentence...

Ebola victim who received experimental ZMapp drug dies of EbolaBy Jonathan Benson, August 30 2014
(NaturalNews) An experimental drug for Ebola known as ZMapp has failed, according to new reports, after a top Liberian doctor who was given the untested medication recently died. According to Lewis Brown, Liberia's Information Minister, Dr. Abraham Borbor seemed to be improving after being given ZMapp but suddenly "took a turn for the worse," calling into question the effectiveness of the experimental drug.
Borbor was among three Liberian doctors who were given ZMapp, which initially appeared...
Russian government instates fines for violating GMO labeling regulationsBy L.J. Devon, Staff Writer, August 30 2014
(NaturalNews) The Russian government doesn't buy into America's genetically modified seed hype so easily. In fact, the Russian government takes a hard stance against the patented seeds, since some are spliced with bacteria to produce insecticide from within. When this kind of lab-manipulated food finds its way into the Russian marketplace, it must be evaluated, scrutinized and labeled appropriately. Current Russian laws require that foodstuffs with 0.9 percent GMO ingredients by weight be labeled...
Common holiday foods that are worse for you than you thinkBy Jeanette Padilla, August 30 2014
(NaturalNews) While holidays provide us with time to relax and eat a bit of junk food it's still important to know what's in the food we're eating. It may seem harmless to have a small slice of pie until you learn just how much fat that one small slice contains. One common apple pie many people reach for is Wal-Mart's double crust apple pie. Just one slice contains 420 calories and 11 grams, or 55 percent, of your daily saturated fat intake. This is an alarmingly high level of saturated fat for just...
Political myths that are destroying freedom: The myth of a limited-government Republican Party (Part 1)By Phil Pepin, August 30 2014
(NaturalNews) I will be doing a series of articles exposing commonly held political myths that many Americans have come to accept as historic fact. These myths were intentionally created by those directly involved in government and by its admirers who benefit from the expansion of state power. Over time, these relatively small groups, compared to the general population, have learned that controlling the public perception of government is essential to achieve their agenda. History teaches that, when...
Phthalates in plastic products decrease testosterone levels in men, women and childrenBy L.J. Devon, Staff Writer, August 30 2014
(NaturalNews) Testosterone is the driving force in men, determining physical structure, brain function, and reproductive health. This hormone is declining in virtually all populations today, giving rise to health conditions including infertility, reduced semen quality and genital malformations in newborns. A certain, balanced amount is even needed for proper development of female anatomy.
For those who struggle internally with conflicting sexual urges, they may wonder if they were born that way...
The power of I AM in healing, forgiving and moving through difficult situationsBy Lance Johnson, August 30 2014
(NaturalNews) Humans are a gifted, blessed species with a level of spiritual free will that often goes unused in modern day society. It's easy to feel doubt, to feel less than capable, letting time pass us by.
But humans have more power than they are led to believe. The great I AM pulsates through everything with confident divinity. Every passing moment, a person's reality is created by a magical and synergistic blend of beliefs, intentions, thoughts and actions. Negative experiences from the...

5 ways to save water in a drought-stricken worldBy Julie Wilson , August 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Water is the essence of life. Humans are bound to this universal mandate as is any other form of life, but how we differ is our ability to control consumption and preserve what is perhaps the most precious gift that the universe has given us.
If consumption continues as is, many predict that by 2020 water will be more valuable than gold. Even though 70 percent of the planet is covered in water, just 3 percent of it is fresh, and only 1 percent of that freshwater is readily accessible...
Solar energy plants ignite birds in mid-air; thousands killed by intense light beamsBy PF Louis, August 29 2014
(NaturalNews) This type of solar energy plant differs from the normal solar panels that convert the sun's energy directly into electrical energy by light-sensitive semiconductors to be used immediately or stored in large batteries.
The solar energy plant that's accused of killing too many birds magnifies the sun's heat with many mirrors and focuses the intensified heat beams onto water tanks to create steam for turbine-driven electric energy generators. Problem is, the tanks are on raised towers...
Glyphosate - The silent danger causing lead poisoning in pregnant womenBy L.J. Devon, Staff Writer, August 29 2014
(NaturalNews) The fight taking place doesn't always involve guns on the battlefield. Sometimes the battlefield is something quiet and innocent like a field of crops. The gun is sometimes the chemical pesticides and herbicides soaking into the plants, loading up in the soil. The pesticides and herbacides fire back silently through the water, bonding to heavy metals like lead in the process, while transporting the toxins more readily into the blood of humans.
It's as if tiny lead bullets are being...
Three superfoods that nourish and rejuvenate the skinBy Michael Ravensthorpe, August 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Many health researchers now understand that our skin is a reflection of our internal health. A body that is fed nutritious whole foods, for instance, is more likely to enjoy clear and radiant skin, while a body that is fed processed foods is more likely to suffer from greasy and affliction-prone skin. Therefore, a change in diet should always be the priority among people seeking to improve their skin's long-term health.
That said, nature has provided us with a number of foods which...
GM mosquitoes increase spread of dengue fever in Brazilian town, causing state of emergency to be renewedBy Jonathan Benson, August 29 2014

Genetically modified (GM) mosquitoes developed by Oxitec have sparked an outbreak of dengue fever in Brazil so severe that officials have had to renew a state of emergency declaring the situation to be a "biological disaster."
The GM mosquitoes were released by Oxitec under commercial approval by...
Phosphoric acid causes kidney disease, lowers bone density, is in Coca-Cola, despite label 'no artificial flavors, no preservatives'By L.J. Devon, Staff Writer, August 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Coca-Cola's global sales have dropped for the third straight year. For the first time in 15 years, Coca-Cola's global soda sales volumes fell in the first quarter of the year. The excitement of the fizzy drinks is begging to fizzle out. Consumers are growing concerned with their waistlines, their diabetes and their overall health, as they gradually shift away from all the sugar, the calories, the caramel colors, the artificial flavors and the preservatives.
That's why Coca-Cola is...
Is your deodorant drugging you through the armpits daily with this neurotoxin?By Lance Johnson, August 29 2014
(NaturalNews) As the temperature rises in the body, thousands of sweat glands begin to bead up, preparing to cool the body down. The average person possesses about 2.6 millions sweat glands -- a built in thermostat. This system is made up of eccrine glands and apocrine glands.
Eccrine glands are the most numerous, harbored in places like the forehead, hands, and feet. These glands are activated at birth and do not secrete proteins or fatty acids.
Apocrine glands, on the other hand, do secrete...
DDT compounds found at deadly levels in Michigan birds and eggsBy Julie Wilson , August 29 2014
(NaturalNews) The people and wildlife of St. Louis, Michigan, continue to suffer from pollution left behind from Velsicol Chemical Corp., a DDT-producing chemical company.
The 54-acre plant shut down decades ago and is now under control of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), but the damages caused by the plant's operations are significantly stifling the area's ecosystem, particularly song-singing birds like robins.
In the 19th century, St. Louis served as a destination hotspot for...
Antibiotic use in infants could cause obesity, study showsBy PF Louis, August 29 2014
(NaturalNews) As if there aren't enough issues with antibiotics, medical researchers have found more. Both an epidemiological and an in vivo (animal) study have determined a plausible connection between antibiotic use for infants and toddlers and child obesity from metabolic syndrome, which usually leads to diabetes type 2 and other even more severe complications.
Of course, both studies are full of "maybes" and "warrants further studies" (for more funding of course) to dilute anything that might...
The many important roles of protein in the bodyBy Michael Ravensthorpe, August 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Proteins are large, complex molecules constructed from a set of 20 amino acids, 8 of which must be obtained through diet and are not produced naturally by the body. Each protein's specific function is determined by its amino acid arrangement, and these arrangements can vary considerably.
While most people understand that protein plays a role in the growth and repair of cells, in reality it performs far more functions. This article contains a distillation of protein's main roles in...

Europe continues paying farmers for food that's now being wasted due to Russian sanctionsBy J. D. Heyes, August 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Officials with the European Union have implemented "emergency" support measures aimed at providing cash to farmers hit hard by Russia's ban on imports of fruit and vegetables from the continent.
As reported by The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and other media, the newly passed measures call for expenditures of as much as €125 million ($167.5 million) in EU (read EU taxpayer) funds to "compensate farmers of perishable fruits and vegetables that are now in the growing season."
