How and why Disney and other corporations hide billions in Luxembourg to avoid excessive taxesBy J. D. Heyes, January 25 2015
(NaturalNews) Corporations are under assault in the court of public opinion in the United States, brought on, in large part, by politicians who seek to use class warfare as a means to maintain their own power and influence.
But that said, some of the activities undertaken by many American multinational corporations makes them ripe for criticism and even condemnation -- criticism that can be amplified unnecessarily when the full breadth of the story is not reported in the media.
Mythical metal alloy discovered in 2,600-year-old shipwreck: Was Atlantis real?By PF Louis, January 25 2015
(NaturalNews) A recent discovery of strange reddish metal ingots on a shipwreck 2,600 years old near Sicily has reignited interest in the historical existence of Atlantis. According to legend, Atlantis was a large landmass, placed by some in the middle of the Atlantic, that met geophysical misfortune and sunk beneath the sea.
And according to this mythology, its people mined and used a rare reddish metal called orichalcum so much that the Greek philosopher Plato described how Atlantis glowed ...
Giving up gluten - How I found health after multiple sclerosisBy Julie Wahlers, January 25 2015
(NaturalNews) Learning how to become healthy again after being diagnosed with a chronic, debilitating illness (of which the medical community says there is "no cure") is like putting a puzzle together when you don't have all of the pieces. I've actually learned a few things in the last 11 months since my MS diagnosis. I realized that I either have celiac disease (which is a disease that causes intestinal damage upon the consumption of gluten) or at the very least, I have gluten intolerance. Either...
Cancer doctors 'fess up to making false diagnoses just to make more moneyBy Ethan A. Huff, January 25 2015
(NaturalNews) The cytoxic effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments for cancer are well-established, and increasingly more people are waking up to the fact that this conventional treatment model is a sure death sentence for most critically ill cancer patients. But a whole new level of evil is creeping its way into the conversation, with cancer doctors now administering these deadly treatments to healthy people who don't even have a legitimate cancer diagnosis.
One of these agents of death...
Shadow Stats tells the real story on unemployment, inflation and GDPBy J. D. Heyes, January 25 2015
(NaturalNews) The government's latest jobs report which noted a decline in the unemployment rate, as well as additional economic data, was largely bogus -- filled with distortions, misrepresentations and, if not outright lies, then the next closest thing to it.
That's according to a pair of economic experts, one of whom served in that capacity during the Reagan Administration -- Paul Craig Roberts.
In a column penned after the early January release of December's job figures and the fourth quarter...
The suppression of knowledge by establishment academicsBy Natural News Editors, January 25 2015
(NaturalNews) One of the reasons I criticize academics has been my experience in their suppression of knowledge. I used to fund important archaeological excavations that could further our knowledge of history. The First Gulf War bombing uncovered a ancient city nobody had known about in the desert of Iraq. Ancient cities contained libraries where everything was stored including court cases and disputes.
Over the years, I was a known collector of ancient economic texts. Thousands of these clay...
CDC lies: Measles outbreaks confirmed among children already vaccinatedBy Jonathan Benson, January 13 2015
(NaturalNews) Maybe Mickey Mouse is responsible for spreading measles to children at Disneyland? This is a more likely hypothesis than health department claims that unvaccinated children are to blame for a recent outbreak that occurred at "the happiest place on Earth," in which 39 people -- and counting -- from at least four states, according to the latest reports, have been confirmed as having contracted the disease while visiting the park.
Official reports are claiming that unvaccinated children...
Baby formula is loaded with GMOs - Avoid these brandsBy Jonathan Benson, January 24 2015
(NaturalNews) A petition is circulating to persuade three of the top infant formula brands in the U.S. -- Abbott Laboratories (Similac), Mead Johnson Nutrition (Enfamil) and Nestle (Gerber Good Start) -- to stop using genetically modified (GM) ingredients in their baby products. Each of these powdered formulas is loaded with corn and soy byproducts, along with sugar, which means they are more than likely GM in nature and harming children.
Several years ago, Natural News warned our readers about...
Nearly 50 million Americans now on food stamps as middle class plummets into povertyBy J. D. Heyes, January 24 2015
(NaturalNews) Fifty years after President Lyndon B. Johnson declared a "war on poverty," and five years after President Obama's administration declared the "Great Recession" over, a record number of Americans remain on taxpayer-supported federal and state assistance programs.
According to the most recent government figures, as reported by CNSNews.com, more than 46 million Americans are not only currently receiving some level of food stamp assistance but have been receiving that assistance for...
Man trapped in 12-year vegetative state was aware all alongBy Jennifer Lilley, January 24 2015
(NaturalNews) If ever there was an answer about whether or not those in a vegetative state possess awareness, it's found in the story of Martin Pistorius. He fell into a coma likely brought on by cryptococcal meningitis in the 1980s. However, after 12 years in a vegetative state, Pistorius has shocked not only his family -- but the world -- by recently coming out of his coma, and by also informing them of something that's often wondered by people, but not necessarily confirmed: He was aware of his...
The true price of plasma donationBy Prof. Karl West, January 24 2015
(NaturalNews) Millions of people seem too easily satisfied with the regurgitated mantras of assumed consensus (based merely on a bias in favor of perceived authority) to gain assurance that donating plasma on a frequent and long-term basis is without significant detrimental effects.
Most "donors," incentivized by a little extra cash, "donate" on a frequent and regular basis, and many continue for a pittance in spite of becoming aware of complications to their own health. Yet, when the roles of...
Report highlights how natural gas "fracking" is causing earthquakesBy Jonathan Benson, January 24 2015
(NaturalNews) North-central Texas is experiencing a surge in earthquakes like never before, and a recent study says the cause could be natural gas hydraulic fracturing, a process more popularly known as "fracking."
The liquid waste left over from pumping natural gas out of the ground is apparently greasing little-known fault lines in the region near Dallas-Fort Worth, triggering waves of earthquakes that, in some cases, are damaging buildings and people's homes.

What your poop says about the status of your healthBy Ethan A. Huff, January 24 2015
(NaturalNews) It's not exactly the most appropriate subject for your next dinner party, but poop has a lot to say about the status of your health if you're willing to listen. If you can get over the gross factor, analyzing the consistency, appearance and frequency of your bowel movements might help you identify underlying health problems of which you may not even be aware.
A healthy stool is composed of about 75 percent water, with the rest constituting a mildly malodorous mixture of fiber, live...
Maryland cops profile gun owners in traffic stops and searchesBy J. D. Heyes, January 24 2015
(NaturalNews) A rising number of gun owners in Maryland believe that law enforcement officers may be singling them out for an inordinate number of traffic stops, thereby infringing on their rights to keep and bear arms, among other constitutional protections.
The Washington Times, in a recent report, described a typical incident involving gun owners:
A year ago this New Year's Eve, John Filippidis of Florida was driving south with his family on Interstate 95 when the Maryland Transportation...
Afraid of the Disneyland measles outbreak? Don't be fooled by Mickey Mouse science - READ THIS FIRSTBy Mike Adams, January 23 2015
(NaturalNews) The Disneyland measles outbreak has America in a panic -- a fact that's totally out of proportion to reality given that so far only 644 people have even caught the measles across the country during the entire year of 2014 vs. the 100,000+ Americans who die every year from the side effects of prescription medications. (The Disneyland outbreak, at least count, was just 39 people.)
Nevertheless, lots of parents are asking the question, "Should I get my children vaccinated against the...

One cup of blueberries per day helps relieve high blood pressure and hardened arteriesBy Julie Wilson staff writer, January 23 2015
(NaturalNews) With ancient ties to North America, its no wonder that blueberries are one of America's favorite foods. Called "star berries" by the Native Americans for their five-point star shape, blueberries were an abundant resource, acting as a food and a medicine. The berries were dried to create a type of jerky that could be taken on long trips, similar to today's version of fruit leather. Natives also made dye from blueberry juice, using it to paint textiles and baskets.

Nutritional education can help breast cancer patients prevent recurrencesBy Jennifer Lilley, January 23 2015
(NaturalNews) It's been said that knowledge is power.
For many breast cancer patients in Brazil, such words ring true, as researchers discovered that providing them with nutritional information may play a role in preventing a recurrence of the disease. In Brazil, where the five-year survival rate is only 58.4 percent, the finding is considered an especially important way of raising health awareness and, ultimately, helping to keep the cancer at bay.(1)

(NaturalNews) What's the number one most difficult obstacle to losing weight?
The hardest part - the real kicker - is sticking to your plan, right?
It's the patience, perseverance and self-discipline. It's the wanting and the commitment to losing weight and becoming as healthy as you know you can be. For most people, losing the proper amount of weight will take weeks, months or even years.

Anyone suffering from poor health needs to do these three thingsBy Michael Edwards, January 22 2015
(NaturalNews) In every case I've ever seen where unhealthy people with disease riddled bodies later became vibrantly healthy, they all had to do three things:
They all had to completely get off of all drugs, including marijuana, caffeine, alcohol, any and all prescription drugs, and over the counter medications.
They had to fix their gut.They had to totally change their diet, eliminating processed foods and eating lots of produce for the rest of their lives.Eliminate drugsYou cannot be...
Brazil, mega-city of 20 million, to run out of water in one monthBy J. D. Heyes, January 23 2015
(NaturalNews) The Western United States is not the only region of the world that is currently suffering under chronic drought conditions. The largest country in South America -- Brazil -- is also experiencing drought, and its biggest city is two months away from running out of water entirely.
As reported by Reuters, the Brazilian mega-city of Sao Paulo, where 20 million people reside, has about one month's worth of a guaranteed water supply, as city officials have begun tapping into the second...
Fast food meal remains unchanged after two years sitting on counter; bugs and fungi avoid toxic, junk foodBy Jennifer Lilley, January 23 2015
(NaturalNews) Here's a story to file in the "gross" category.
For two years, a McDonald's cheeseburger and fries, along with a Taco Bell soft shell chicken taco, have sat on display, unwrapped and uneaten. That's not the big deal. The eye-opening shocker is that 24 months later, they still look as fresh-from-the-kitchen as they did the day they were served. Even more disturbing, bugs won't even go near the junk food.
Wayne State University Assistant professor of food science Yafan Zhang says...
Four ways to easily tell what your poop says about your healthBy Derek Henry, January 23 2015
(NaturalNews) It's not something discussed in most social circles, but one of the most important topics when it comes down to you being able to evaluate your health, is your poop. The frequency, form, fumes, and color are all you need to evaluate your stool and to be able to make a reasonable assessment of how different areas of your body are functioning.
So, if you are ready to get down and dirty with your bowel movements, be sure to use this handy guide to measure your results.
How the UN is confiscating American homes and controlling all food and energyBy Natural News Editors, January 13 2015
(NaturalNews) In times of crises, the government has proven, time and time again, that it cannot be counted on to adequately protect the American people. As the American people have not prepared for the coming dark days, they will be vulnerable to starvation, dehydration, cholera, pandemics and attacks from resource-deficient looters. Will the government be there to save them? History has already answered this question in the negative. Events such as Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, L.A. riots...
Tyranny grows in America as FBI insists no warrant needed to snoop on private citizens' cell phone callsBy J. D. Heyes, January 23 2015
(NaturalNews) The Fourth and Fifth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution have taken new hits recently, as the Federal Bureau of Investigation now asserts that it does not need a court-issued warrant when deploying cell-tower simulators in public places.
The devices, which are nicknamed "stingrays," are essentially nothing more than cell phone tower decoys that are capable of capturing locations and identities of mobile phone users. In addition, the decoy towers can intercep calls and text messages...

Suddenly 2015 feels a whole lot like the delusional financial euphoria we saw before the dot-com crashBy Mike Adams, January 22 2015
(NaturalNews) To fully understand the insanity of modern-day delusional "everything is awesome!" thinking, you have to rewind to the years of 1998 - 2001. Back then, both the mainstream media and citizen masses were all riding the delusional mind game train that supposed we could all get rich by trading each other pieces of paper with larger and larger numbers written on them. It was called the "dot-com boom" and it was a wildly popular mass delusion that swept up nearly everyone.
Hungry Venezuelans sleep in endless grocery lines as food shortage crisis worsensBy J. D. Heyes, January 22 2015
(NaturalNews) As socialist government deepens in Venezuela, economic conditions continue to worsen for the Venezuelan people -- and the government leaders continue to deny that their policies are to blame.
So bad, now, is the economy that the government has deployed the military -- the military -- to ensure that anxious, hungry and needy citizens don't over-indulge at stores (when they actually have merchandise and food, which is increasingly rare).
As reported by Bloomberg News recently, shoppers...
Cure sinus infections naturally using these herbsBy Julie Wilson staff writer, January 22 2015
(NaturalNews) This time of year, nearly everyone is suffering from some type of sinus irritation, whether it be a respiratory infection, head cold or agitated allergies caused by wintertime allergens (most likely cedar if you're living in central Texas). If you're like me, you avoid over-the-counter allergy pills like a plague. For one, they don't always work, and secondly, they're usually accompanied by a range of side effects including drowsiness, headache, dry mouth and nervousness.
Three lies Big Biotech uses to justify GMOsBy PF Louis, January 22 2015
(NaturalNews) An international conference, the "Oxford Real Farming Conference," was held in England's historic, massive Oxford Town Hall on January 6-7, 2014. It was reported on by an excellent paper, "Oxford Real Farming Conference: power, lies, and agrarian resistance" by Colin Tudge, one of the conference's co-founders

The widely unknown danger of the flu epidemicBy Jonathan Landsman, January 22 2015
(NaturalNews) According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), "the best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year." The CDC continues its 'educational campaign' by telling the public that "influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses." But, if you want to avoid being a flu epidemic statistic, you'll need to get past the lies and deceptive marketing tactics of vaccine manufacturers - which prove to be far more dangerous than the flu itself.
Infrared saunas - the easiest way to look and feel betterBy Derek Henry, January 22 2015

Whole Foods employees caught on video beating veteran outside retail storeBy Daniel Barker, January 22 2015
(NaturalNews) A video that appears to show a man being beaten by several employees at Manhattan's Union Square Whole Foods Market has gone viral after being featured on the LiveLeak website.
In the five-minute video, a man identified only as "Adam" can be seen repeatedly trying to enter the Whole Foods Market on the night of Dec. 30, apparently after hours, while employees and security personnel forcibly prevent him from doing so. The employees can also be seen beating him up, even after he has...
Smartphones will begin categorizing users' mental health; gun seizures will followBy J. D. Heyes, January 22 2015
(NaturalNews) The Digital Age has produced some remarkable technology and will continue to do so, but as each new innovation springs forth, more of us are finding that we are not as comfortable with it as we once thought we might be.
One of the latest examples comes from a new iPhone app that appears capable of gauging one's mental health -- though how accurately it can do so remains questionable, as does what authorities might do with such information.

Avocados can reduce the risk of heart disease, study findsBy Michael Ravensthorpe, January 22 2015
(NaturalNews) It's not difficult to find research exposing the many health benefits of avocados. Studies show that these pear-shaped fruits, which are native to Mexico and Central America, are packed with essential nutrients that can aid weight loss, boost vision and guard us from cancer. Moreover, avocados are rich in antiestrogenic sterols, such as beta-sisterol, that can increase testosterone levels in men and progesterone levels in women.
However, a new study published in the January 2015...

Diesel exhaust can mutate your genes, study findsBy Jennifer Lilley, January 22 2015
(NaturalNews) Researchers from the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Vancouver Coastal Health have discovered that not only can exposure to diesel exhaust give asthmatics headaches and itchy eyes, but -- more poignant to their study -- it can alter genes on a micro level. After just two hours of exposure to diesel exhaust fumes, study participants exhibited changes in their genes linked to oxidative stress and inflammation.(1)

The twisted medicine of immoral America: Killing your baby is a choice; protecting your baby is a crimeBy Mike Adams, January 21 2015
(NaturalNews) Throughout the history of collapsed civilizations, nearly all of them experienced a phase of rapid morality decline that preceded their ultimate implosion. The Nazi regime promoted the "science" of genetically-selected eugenics and mass death to "cleanse" the human race, for example, and then went on to commit heinous crimes against humanity, many of which were carried out by chemical companies that later became today's best-known pharmaceutical giants such as Bayer.

Washington state threatens to seize baby unless entire family gets flu shotBy L.J. Devon, Staff Writer, January 21 2015
(NaturalNews) One of the worst diseases infecting the very heart of America is the use of force. The use of force allows one group or person control over another. Force is one group taking from another person because they think they have the power to do so. It's a law mandating what everyone must buy while threatening non-compliance with an escalating yearly fine (Obamacare).
Force allows authority to dictate what you can and cannot put into your body. It tells you exactly what you must put into...
CDC caught inflating flu deaths to sell more vaccinesBy Jonathan Benson, January 21 2015
(NaturalNews) You know that "36,000" number the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) is constantly throwing around as the number of people in the U.S. who supposedly die every year from influenza? It's completely made up, and its purpose is to sell more flu vaccines, as evidenced by actual mortality data showing that only a few hundred people at most die from influenza annually.
As highlighted by the American Society of Registered Nurses (ASRN), government claims that tens or even...
Why the next financial crash will cascade quickly: Most Americans have no savings for any emergencyBy J. D. Heyes, January 21 2015
(NaturalNews) As a growing number of pundits and financial analysts claim that the United States economy is finally taking off and that nothing but quarterly growth is projected for the foreseeable future, they either are ignorant of one basic fact about Americans' personal economic well-being or are being willfully misleading.
As noted by global financial analyst website Zero Hedge, one underlying sign that "the growing U.S. economy" is having little effect on the most basic levels is the fact...
High fructose corn syrup, fructose, corn syrup - Poison by any other nameBy Julie Wahlers, January 21 2015
(NaturalNews) When chemicals added to processed foods earn a bad rep for causing disease and disability, one would hope the food manufacturers would remove them from their products or the FDA would protect the American people by banning them, but neither seems to be the case - not when big money is at stake. Instead the food manufacturers either launch dis-information campaigns claiming their additives are either healthy or benign, or they confuse and deceive the consumer by using a different name...
Did you know pine trees can be used as food, medicine and survival equipment?By Daniel Barker, January 21 2015
(NaturalNews) The pine is one of the most useful trees on the planet, providing food, shelter, medicine and fuel. Knowing how to utilize this versatile resource could someday be the key to your very survival if you find yourself alone in the wilderness.

Reading food labels more important than ever after FDA admits it isn't doing its jobBy Jonathan Benson, January 21 2015
(NaturalNews) The regulatory process that governs the safety of the foods that we eat isn't nearly as stringent as many people believe it is. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is on record admitting that it doesn't even know what many food manufacturers are putting in their products, let alone whether or not these additives are safe for human consumption.
Just because an ingredient or additive is "approved" by the FDA doesn't necessarily mean the agency ever evaluated its safety through the...
Radishes - their health benefits may surprise youBy Kali Sinclair, January 21 2015
(NaturalNews) I remember the days when the typical American salad was a bowl full of torn, crisp, iceberg lettuce with a few tiny pieces of red cabbage and carrot, a wedge or two of tomato, a slice of onion, a slice of cucumber, and several slices of red radish.
The only other time I ate radishes was when I was trying to lose weight. Radishes and salt along with celery and carrot sticks were the favored, low-calorie option. I knew little about the health benefits from this noble plant until later...
Global pattern of vaccine injury, death and deception haunts humanityBy Jonathan Benson, January 21 2015
(NaturalNews) When it comes to the risks associated with vaccinations, the vaccine brigade is quick to claim that injuries and deaths are extremely rare, and that the benefits of vaccines far outweigh any perceived dangers. But this simply isn't the case, as reports continue to pour in showing that vaccines have a solid track record of causing serious harm and death in children all around the world, despite media lies to the contrary.
Back in September, for instance, it was reported that dozens...
Radiation contamination discovered in fresh produce, dairy, meat, and fishBy Ethan A. Huff, January 21 2015
(NaturalNews) The inherent dangers of nuclear radiation are once again on display after officials in Scotland found contaminated fish some 80 miles away from the closest nuclear plant. Scotland's Daily Record paper reports that nuclear waste released from a Cumbrian reprocessing site made its way into fish swimming off the coast of Dumfriesshire, located several driving hours away.
Even though the Sellafield nuclear station is located a considerable distance to the south of Dumfriesshire, and...
List of medical kidnappings happening now in AmericaBy Mike Adams, January 20 2015
(NaturalNews) Where has America gone? President Obama is about to give a State of the Union address this evening, but the real state of the Union is that under Presidents Bush and Obama, America has descended into a runaway police state where citizens are considered "subjects" who must kow-tow to corporate-sponsored agendas or face the wrath of the state.
Those independent-thinking Americans who do not surrender to the twisted demands of the State are deemed criminals by default, even if they...
