Double mastectomies offer almost no survival benefit for breast cancer patients, 20-year study provesBy L.J. Devon, Staff Writer, July 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Western medicine is so aggressive and cut-throat that even the idea of prevention has been skewed to the point of chopping off and cutting out body parts for "preventing" cancer that isn't even there.
Fear and self-mutilation are not the answer. Today in American mainstream medicine, women are given the option to remove healthy breasts, ovaries and other female parts so cancer won't get a hold of them in the future. This is like preventing house fires by first burning out important...
Scientific fraud? DuPont study deliberately hid toxic effects of GMOs fed to ratsBy David Gutierrez, July 29 2014
(NaturalNews) A pair of studies recently published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) reveals the double standard used in evaluating the safety of genetically modified (GM) foods, says Claire Robinson, in a July 11 editorial on the website GM Watch.
Editorial double standardIn November 2013, FCT editor A. Wallace Hayes forcibly retracted a study led by researcher Gilles-Eric Seralini. The long-term study had found organ damage, hormone disruption and increased tumor and mortality...

These are your first steps toward better health. But, what if there were foods that had very targeted effects on blood sugar and type 2 diabetes? Here are 10 foods that lower blood sugar, support pancreatic health and may lessen your need for insulin...
Studies show that broccoli can treat cancer, respiratory diseases and moreBy Michael Ravensthorpe, July 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Along with spinach and kale, broccoli is one of the most nutritious "regular" vegetables in existence. Indeed, this cruciferous, cabbage-like vegetable, which was first grown in the Italian province of Campania, was seen as uniquely valuable among the Ancient Romans due to its significant healing properties.
When Italian immigrants introduced broccoli to the United States at the beginning of the 20th century, it became a favorite vegetable among the settlers, and its popularity continues...
Dentists in shock as Indian teen has 232 teeth removed in one appointmentBy L.J. Devon, Staff Writer, July 29 2014
(NaturalNews) What was going on in the mouth of 17-year-old Ashik Gavai of India?
How were 232 teeth growing inside his jaw and what was causing such an abnormal flowering of teeth?
According to International Business Times, when doctors at Sir J.J. Hospital in Mumbai, India, took the boy in to have a look, they discovered a world record set of teeth blooming in the teen's jaw line. Strangely, the explosion of teeth stemmed from a single molar.

Cannabis reverses late-stage Alzheimer'sBy Paul Fassa, July 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Alzheimer's disease has become the third-leading disease cause of death, behind heart disease and cancer. Its rate has risen almost exponentially over the past few decades, and the numbers are expected to triple by 2050. 
Meanwhile, Big Pharma is clueless, which is a blessing in disguise, as some more effective, less expensive and less toxic remedies are slipping through the cracks.
You've probably read about the positive effects of coconut oil's medium-chain triglycerides...
North India gangs enforce 'water tax' on defenseless villagers: is this the future of the American West?By J. D. Heyes, July 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Much of the western United States is currently mired in a devastating drought, one that could eventually see the relocation of tens of thousands of people out of Las Vegas, as well as massive food shortages caused by the lack of production in California's once-fertile fields.
And the lack of water is causing definite changes in behavior among the civil society. Cities have levied new fines on residents who are caught using too much water or using water in an unapproved manner (such...
Half the United States under increased threat of earthquakes, warns USGSBy David Gutierrez, July 29 2014
(NaturalNews) According to the most recent federal earthquake map from the U.S. Geologic Survey (USGS), roughly half of the United States is at a higher risk of quakes than previously thought.
The actual risk is probably even higher, as the map does not take into account increased risk due to oil and gas extraction techniques such as hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") and carbon dioxide injection.
The federal report, published July 17, is the first update to the earthquake map since 2008. It...
Detoxing from the outside inBy Alex Du Toit, Earthie Mama, July 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Our bodies are subject to many harsh chemicals in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the body care products some of us lather on our skin. If the toxins remain in the body it is possible for our organs to become increasingly toxic leading to all kinds of possible illness. It is possible to recognize when your body might be needing to detox. If you are feeling sluggish, bloated, achy in the joints, having brain fog or just need to relax, a detox bath might be just what you need...
BuzzFeed editor fired for repeat plagiarism: stole text from NYT, Yahoo Answers and moreBy PF Louis, July 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Maybe you haven't heard of or seen hyper mixed media website BuzzFeed in its entirety, but if you use Twitter and/or Facebook, then you may have seen bits and pieces of it. According to New York Magazine, "BuzzFeed's articles only nominally live on the website, spending most of their time out of the house as links on social networks like Facebook and Twitter." 
That seems to be part of co-founder Jonah Peretti's cleverness for creating viral surges that have put BuzzFeed's online...
Latest study finds that interrupted sleep akin to getting virtually no sleep at allBy Antonia, July 29 2014

Population not getting sufficient sleep It's recommended that adults get seven to...
Malaysia Flight 17: Another air incident in a long history of cover-ups, but what is the motive?By J. D. Heyes, July 29 2014
(NaturalNews) It has not been a good year for air travelers, Boeing or, especially, Malaysia Airlines. It's also not been a good year for peace and justice, or reasonable, believable explanations for some pretty bizarre incidents.
The most recent "bizarre" incident -- the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH-17, which (according to available evidence) was likely brought down by a surface-to-air missile from a highly sophisticated air defense weapon in eastern Ukraine -- is suspicious for a number...
NYC paramedics stood by and did nothing while police choked man to death on the sidewalkBy J. D. Heyes, July 29 2014

NASA sounds red alert over solar flare that nearly wiped out human civilization two summers agoBy Mike Adams, July 28 2014
(NaturalNews) The news you are about to read should be front page news everywhere. There is arguably nothing more important to humanity's survival than the alarming facts presented in this report from NASA, yet most of the world pretends this event never happened in 2012, and they falsely assume it won't happen again.
They are wrong. According to shocking new research published by NASA, each decade there is roughly a 12% chance of a near-wipeout of humanity's high-tech civilization. In fact, one...
How Monsanto and biotech companies violate the Nuremberg Code with inhumane experiments on humansBy Jonathan Benson, July 28 2014
(NaturalNews) The basic human rights protections established by the Nuremberg Code, which was adopted immediately after the end of World War II, continue to serve as a global template for how human beings are to be treated by the scientific community. But the modern equivalent of the Holocaust is now taking form under the guise of feeding the world and saving the planet, with Monsanto and others in the biotech industry routinely testing their chemicals and faux foods on the public without informed...
Computer models: Even a small nuclear war would cause global famine and wipe out billions of peopleBy J. D. Heyes, July 28 2014
(NaturalNews) While millions of people around the world have an innate fear of nuclear weapons and think that every country that has them should dismantle them, many foreign policy experts who have adopted a "realist" worldview maintain that those mighty weapons of mass destruction have actually kept the world safer since they were developed at the close of World War II.
While that sounds odd given their destructive power, these experts point out that without them -- and when there was relative...

Ocean acidification is causing sea snails' shells to dissolve, threatening species with extinctionBy L.J. Devon, Staff Writer, July 28 2014
(NaturalNews) Every time the foot hits the pedal, a blast of smoke billows out the rear cannon of the vehicle. The rush is on, to go further, faster. Pure oxygen from a forest breeze is replaced with rising carbon dioxide levels, blowing out the exhaust pipes. More roads are paved, cutting through the landscape. The trees fall, one after the other, as the green is erased for a sky of grey.
Can the earth sustain such abuse -- an exhausted atmosphere choking on the exhaust of relentless human pursuits...

(NaturalNews) In today's America, you will be hard-pressed to find any institutional media organization being critical of Left-wing politicians, and in particular, uber-liberal presidents. But in what many are calling unprecedented, some 38 journalism groups have lambasted President Obama's inner circle for censoring media coverage, limiting access to top officials and overall "politically-driven suppression of the news."
In a letter to Obama, the group of 38, led by the Society of Professional...
CDC calls insufficient sleep a public health epidemic: Learn to sleep like a babyBy Mike Bundrant, July 28 2014
(NaturalNews) The CDC has it right in declaring lack of sleep a public health epidemic.
Lack of sleep has been linked to a number of public issues such as industrial disasters, medical and occupational errors, and motor vehicle accidents.
In addition to these well-known consequences, however, new studies have shown that people who receive insufficient sleep are at increased risk for chronic disease such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and even cancer.

Hoped-for 'AIDS cure' drug fails miserably in monkey experiments; HIV outwits Big Pharma yet againBy J. D. Heyes, July 28 2014
(NaturalNews) A monkey version of the HIV virus can outwit anti-AIDS drugs just days after entering the body, according to researchers who were disappointed that Big Pharma still cannot produce a human cure for the disease.
If the same thing is true for humans, treatment for HIV would have to begin "extremely early" after someone is infected with the virus that eventually causes AIDS, said researchers who published findings recently in the journal Nature.

Dangerous effects of vitamin A deficiency and what foods to eat to prevent itBy Reuben Chow, July 28 2014
(NaturalNews) Vitamin A is an essential nutrient which plays numerous important roles in the human body, most notably in eye health, proper growth and immune function.
This vitamin was discovered sometime in 1913 by two groups of researchers, who found that young animals which consumed a diet lacking in natural fats suffered from inhibited growth and poor immunity. Their eyes also became badly infected and inflamed. However, the addition of either butterfat or cod-liver oil to their diets - both...

Grass-fed organ meat described by some as a micronutrient powerhouse for maximum nutritionBy Ethan A. Huff, July 28 2014
(NaturalNews) Fruits and vegetables often take the spotlight when it comes to nutrition and health, with meat products typically being relegated to the unhealthy category. But meat from pasture-raised animals, and particularly organ meat derived from animals fed a diet of grass, water and sunshine, is one of the most nutrient-dense "superfoods" available, say proponents.
The idea of consuming organ meat may seem unappealing to some who are unfamiliar with its extensive history of use in traditional...

Nearly 300,000 suicides in India so far from GMO crop failuresBy Ethan A. Huff, July 27 2014
(NaturalNews) The Western media is steeped in denial about the true damage being caused by genetically modified (GM) crops, especially in the developing Third World. But despite the lies you may have heard from mainstream news sources, nearly 300,000 Indian farmers have committed suicide since 1995 as a direct result of mounting debt and crop failures associated with GMO crops, and mainly cotton crops that were forcibly converted to patented, transgenic varieties owned by Big Biotech.

3 common ways nutrients are being destroyed in your foodBy Derek Henry, July 27 2014
(NaturalNews) One of the greatest concerns with the food supply today is the toxicity and lack of nutrients. This begins with the seed, then the soil it is planted in, followed by the treatment it receives during its growth phase. But if that wasn't enough, a further degradation of food takes place between the harvest and the plate. These are the three most prominent ways.
Processing The most commonly eaten and most processed food category is arguably the grains. They often undergo a process that...

Type 2 diabetes is best left untreated in many cases, researchers sayBy PF Louis, July 27 2014
(NaturalNews) Of course, the treatments referred to are those of mainstream medicine, the pushers of toxic pharmaceuticals. As poet/physician Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., once said, "If we doctors threw all our medicines into the sea, it would be that much better for our patients and that much worse for the fishes." It seems a handful of medical experts are catching onto this a little regarding diabetes type 2.

Recognizing severity behind the plight of bees, state goverments step in with funding to help protect this beneficial insectBy Antonia, July 26 2014
(NaturalNews) Enjoy eating healthy foods like cherries, broccoli, almonds and strawberries? Consuming them is possible in large part due to bee pollination, but since their population is severely dwindling because of pesticide use and disease, many states are now paying people to help save and raise the beneficial insect. (1,2) Considering that they help keep excellent food choices in diets and that they play a role in contributing over $15 billion to U.S. crop production, it's a smart move.(2)
