Mike Adams: New photos from the Health Ranger ranch: Snake capture, roosters, goats, donkeys, wildflowers and more
Because most people who read Natural News live in cities, I like to share photos from the ranch in Texas, where life is rugged, rural and self-reliant.
A string of cancer charities: the Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, the Breast Cancer Society and the Children’s Cancer Fund of America have turned out to be manipulative frauds run by a family of con artists. The money they raised for cancer patients actually went to pay for personal luxuries instead: Disney World trips, jet ski outings, new cars, college tuition and luxury travel.
“This is as about as bad as it can get: taking money away from cancer victims,” said Jessica Rich, chief of the Federal Trade Commission Bureau of Consumer Protection. The FTC was joined by the attorney general and law enforcement officials from all 50 states in the case against the fake cancer charities.
Their benevolence doesn’t end there. The con artists also gave junk food and bad drugs to cancer patients. Some children were given out-of-date antibiotics that made their condition worse. One federal complaint revealed that the charities gave breast cancer patients certain drugs that “are not typically used for the treatment of breast cancer and, in some instances, are not recommended for use by persons who have had cancer.”
The hidden details of a treasonous new “trade” agreement currently being negotiated between the U.S. and 11 other countries in secret continue to be leaked, with new evidence pointing to the further erosion of national food sovereignty under the sinister plan. The so-called “Trans-Pacific Partnership,” or TPP, threatens to eliminate the freedom of farmers to save seeds while forcing signatory nations to allow multinational biotechnology companies to patent whole plants as intellectual property.
Despite continued efforts by the Obama administration to conceal this stealth agricultural takeover, the provisions of TPP continue to make headlines, at least across the alternative media spectrum. As part of the infamous Codex Alimentarius scam to “harmonize” international trade laws to accommodate corporate interests, TPP’s implementation will lead to the further unraveling of national sovereignty, forcing member nations into an international tribunal setup where corporations essentially call all the shots.
If you care about the quality of your food, and want to be able to identify genetically engineered (GE) foods, then this interview is of great importance. In it, Ben Beachy reveals important details about the imminent legislative threats that can seriously impair your ability to purchase healthy food.
You also need to be aware of an important and devastating development in the so-called Pompeo “DARK” Act that requires your immediate involvement.
Today, at 10 a.m., Reps. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) and their band of pro-GMO, anti-consumer, stomp-all-over-statesâ€™-rights outlaws will stand before the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health and ask the Committee to support H.R. 1599.
Weâ€™ve been calling H.R. 1599 the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act, because thatâ€™s what the bill is intended to doâ€”keep you in the dark about the toxic chemical-drenched GMOs in your food.
But thatâ€™s only half the story. Since Pompeo introduced his bill-to-kill GMO labeling laws earlier this year, heâ€™s been tinkering with the language. Now, the latest version of the DARK Act is than the original.
In fact, if you thought the was bad (and it was), the new-and-improved DARK Act is the Mother of all Monsanto Protection Acts.
Jerry Brown pushing depopulation in California: Too many people, not enough water, something has to go!
Californians might want to pay a bit more attention to the governor of their state, as he is openly musing about a draconian idea to deal with the ongoing drought: depopulation.
As reported by The Daily Caller, Brown recently stated before the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California board that, at some point, if more water does not flow into the Golden State, it could eventually mean that there will be too many people for the available water to support. He also hinted that so-called “global warming” was only making California’s drought worse.
Monsanto is trying to buy Syngenta, move to London and change its name. Monsanto can run. But we can’t let two of the world’s worst corporate criminals hide out while they continue to poison our food and environment.
Three residents of Los Angeles have filed a class action lawsuit against the Monsanto Company for false and misleading advertising. Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide currently bears the claim “Glyphosate targets an enzyme found in plants but not in people or pets” (italics added for emphasis) that is patently false, and plaintiffs are seeking both monetary damages and a preliminary and permanent injunction against Monsanto’s continued use of this false claim.
How great would it be if organic farming were recognized as a way to feed the world? Of course, it has been acknowledged as a good idea by many people around the globe, including the folks involved with the popular magazine National Geographic. That’s the good news. The bad? They’re on board with it, so long as it’s done with GMOs.
How else to explain the extraordinary, coordinated attack on Chipotle for going GMO-free? Action Alert! (Story by the Alliance for Natural Health USA, republished from .)
After announcing that Chipotle would make the switch to using exclusively non-GMO ingredients in their food, the restaurant chain was slammed hard by major news media outlets. Here’s a sampling of some of the headlines: “Why Chipotle Mexican Grill Going GMO-Free is Terrible News” (Time); “Chipotle’s GMO Gimmick Is Hard to Swallow” (Washington Post); “Why We Can’t Take Chipotle’s GMO Announcement All That Seriously” (NPR).
We’ve come to expect a complete and utter lack of balanced reporting and journalistic integrity when it comes to some of the issues the natural health community cares about, but this sort of vindictive screed against a company for simply trying to satisfy its customers strikes us as particularly egregious and appalling.
The shocking truth conveyed by this articleâ€™s headline is that â€œnearly 52 percent of the deaths were related to prescription drugs.â€ The unfortunate circumstance around so many prescription drug overdoses is that most victims never even knew they ODâ€™d.
There is now a pervasive pharmaceutical drug culture across America. If you were to look inside the medicine cabinet of many homes you would find a panoply of prescription bottles of every size. Some full, some half full; others empty and awaiting a refill. This predicament is becoming all too common for those who place so much faith on their daily drug ritual.
Famous for her natural beauty and superb acting skills that have allowed her to star in a multitude of diverse roles, native Californian Jessica Alba is anything but ordinary. While you might recognize her from a number of popular films including Sin City, Fantastic Four, Machete and Into the Blue, Alba is much more than just an actress with a pretty face.
In fact, she’s become so successful in selling nontoxic household essentials that experts predict she could soon earn a spot on Forbes’ list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women, joining contenders such as Oprah Winfrey, Judge Judy and Beyonce.
While Alba is mostly known for her films, it’s her impeccable business sense that has helped her build an empire selling nontoxic household goods ranging from all-natural diapers to organic formula and other chemical-free cosmetics such as deodorant, toothpaste, lotions and bubble bath.

Cleverly branded as , Alba first launched the project in 2012 after struggling to find products that were safe and chemical-free when she was concerned that her new baby girl might experience some of the harsh reactions Alba did as a child. â€¦
Today, The Honest Company, which Alba holds a 15 to 20 percent stake in, is valued at a whopping $1 billion dollars, which makes her worth a reported $200 million. Some predict revenues could reach $250 million this year. In late May, the company even launched a product line in South Korea, meeting the demand for safe and there.

Greek yogurt has a big waste problem. To make it thick and creamy, producers strain out all of its liquid. They end up with .
Which brings us to an even more pressing problem: the water.
Making one small container, a single serving, of Greek yogurt requires 90 gallons of water, .
So while Greek yogurt might be a delicious, protein-rich snack, it’s probably not your best bet in the middle of the drought.
