Military servicemen call for an end to the Pentagon's vaccine mandate

(Natural News) A group of military servicemen has called for an end to the Pentagon’s Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine mandate. It expressed concern about the COVID-19 shot’s harms through a 100-page report addressed to Congress.

The report featured statements from pilots and other military service members injured by the vaccine, including multiple anecdotes. It also included an aviation safety officer’s discovery of vaccine injuries that were not reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

“This is just a small sample of many vaccine-injured service members who have decided to come forward and share their heartbreaking stories,” the report stated.

An officer who went by the pseudonym Lt. Col. William P. Anton, who has served more than 20 years in the military, spearheaded the report to Congress. However, he was “shocked and frustrated to have only received lukewarm responses from a couple of senators and their staffers.”

“Injuries to my fellow service members are happening right before our eyes and we know the solution [stopping the mandate], but no one is doing anything about it,” he said.

Anton also expressed disappointment over the senior military and civilian leadership.

“They are each in their own way aware of the ill health effects on our service members or the negative impact on our military’s readiness, and yet they remain silent,” he stated. “They justify their silence as obedience to military orders because that is easier than to acknowledge their own lack of moral courage.”

Anton believes that the senior management would not want to risk their next promotion so they have not “heard” their call to halt the vaccine mandate.

“In the military, people are willing to die for their country and the men and women standing right next to them,” but he is concerned that the management “are not willing to lay down their careers to speak out on what is going on.” (Related: Cover up: DOD silent after whistleblowers expose COVID ‘vaccine’ injuries in military.)

COVID-19 shots injure pilots, rendering them unable to fly

In a tell-all with the Epoch Times, Chief Warrant Officer (CW4) Aaron Murphy, not his real name, said that when the defense secretary made the vaccines mandatory, he took it like the other vaccines in the past. Murphy is a command pilot of the Boeing AH-64 Apache, the Army’s most advanced multi-role combat helicopter, and has over 15 years of flying service.

On Aug. 24, 2021, he chose to take Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine. Within four minutes, he felt a tingle go up his arm, into the neck and into his head, and felt like he was about to pass out. His blood pressure also plummeted, he said.

After some time, he was able to recover but decided to not finish the remainder of the workday and go home. The next day, he had a fever, a sore back and significant fatigue, but he thought these were all normal symptoms after taking the vaccine.

On the third day he had stroke-like symptoms, struggled to reach work and again decided to head home to rest. He was sick for a few days until one Sunday morning while at the church, it happened again. “I was short of breath, dizzy and turning pale, so my wife took me home,” he recounted. “For the next several months, I felt like I was on a boat.”

Due to this, he had been grounded from flight since August 2021. And without a medical diagnosis for the problem, he just thought he had vertigo.

He showed improvement after three months of physical therapy. By March 2022, Murphy was medically cleared for flight.

However, a second consultation in August 2022 led a doctor to diagnose him with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST). The neurologist in the diagnosis wrote that the thrombosis could have resulted from the Janssen vaccine.

Since then, Murphy has been grounded and non-deployable because of the blood-thinning medication prescribed to him. He has been directed to continue the medication in the months ahead, and schedule an additional MRV in December for analysis.

School district in Maryland reports almost 600% increase in students who identify as NON-BINARY

Image: School district in Maryland reports almost 600% increase in students who identify as NON-BINARY

(Natural News) A school district (SD) in Maryland reported an almost 600 percent increase in the number of students who identify as “non-binary.”

A survey conducted by the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) in Old Line State’s Montgomery County brought this alarming increase to light. The SD made students from elementary through high school fill out a form that asks for their “identified name,” “identified gender” and “preferred pronouns.”

Based on the survey’s 2019 edition, only 35 students throughout the entire MCPS system identified as non-binary – i.e. identifying as a gender outside the normal male-female dichotomy. The 2021 edition, however, saw this number rise to 239 students – equating to a 582 percent increase in a span of two years.

A breakdown of the 239 students who identified as non-binary showed that the majority of them were middle schoolers, children aged between 11 and 14. Ninety-two were in high school, while 18 children were in elementary. (Related: ‘Openly queer teacher’ admits to socially transitioning 3rd grade students.)

Over the last four years from 2019 to 2022, a total of 423 intake forms have been submitted to the MCPS. Forms from that period showed that almost half of the SD’s population – 45 percent – identify as non-binary.

According to KUTV 2, principals in MCPS are instructed to work with non-binary students and their families to develop a plan to ensure that the students have equal access and equal opportunity and will be protected from gender-based discrimination at school.

Brighteon.TV

The TV station also noted that the form asks if parents are aware of their children’s non-binary identification, and ranks their level of support on a scale of one to 10. The MCPS form emphasized that parents and guardians should only be involved in the completion of the form if they are aware and supportive of the child’s gender identity. More than half of MCPS students identifying as non-binary – 55 percent – gave high scores ranging from between eight and 10.

Transgenderism, other gender identities are a social contagion that threatens children

In a piece for Harbingers Daily, Answers in Genesis (AiG) CEO Ken Ham blasted the survey’s findings.

“This confusion and rejection of God’s created order of male and female is not biological. It’s the direct result of public schools and the media grooming children for gender confusion from the time they are very young,” he wrote.

“Introducing the idea of pronouns, the gender spectrum and transgender ideology to very young children is confusing them and sending the numbers skyrocketing.”

Ham, whose organization AiG operates the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter theme park in Kentucky, slammed transgenderism “and the host of other gender identities” as a new “social contagion” that threatens children.

“These young kids, believing they are something other than male or female, are ripe for the sexual abuse that is ‘gender-affirming’ hormones and surgeries. These procedures can cause permanent sterility and mutilate bodies, not to mention the health complications we don’t even know about yet, [alongside] the never-ending medical visits.”

The AiG CEO also zeroed in on how MCPS made non-binary students involve their parents in filling up the forms only if they were aware of their children’s gender identity. According to Ham, this was a clear example of “how schools are increasingly portraying parents as the enemy, but the school and the government as having the child’s best interests in mind.”

He warned that parents themselves “will now have to support and help their children through the painful and lifelong consequences of this gender madness long after they’ve moved on from the school, teachers, and media that have planted the seeds of confusion in their minds.”

“This is the largest social and medical experiment on children,” Ham said. “It’s evil and disgusting – and the teachers, school boards, media personalities and others who are pushing this on children need to repent of the irreparable harm they are causing.”

“What is happening in U.S. public schools is horrifying, and we must be aware of it and stand boldly against it for the sake of precious children, made male or female in God’s image, who are being sacrificed on the altar of a twisted ideology.”

Pfizer Increases Price of COVID Jab by 400%

  • October 20, 2022, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) unanimously (15-0) voted to add unlicensed COVID-19 shots to the U.S. childhood, adolescent and adult vaccine schedules

October 20, 2022, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) unanimously (15-0) voted to add unlicensed COVID-19 shots to the U.S. childhood, adolescent and adult vaccine schedules.1

By adding the shots to the vaccine schedule, the CDC is securing Pfizer’s and Moderna’s permanent liability shield so that no one can sue them for damages for injuries and deaths occurring as a result of the shots. It also opens the door for states to mandate the jab for school children.

The very same day, Pfizer announced it will raise the price on its COVID jab by about 400%,2 from $303 per jab to somewhere between $110 and $130 once the current U.S. purchase program expires.

While in direct opposition to how capitalism normally works, Reuters4 claims significant price hikes were predicted5 by Wall Street analysts “due to weak demand for COVID vaccines, which meant vaccine makers would need to hike prices to meet revenue forecasts for 2023 and beyond.”

As noted by comedian Jimmy Dore in the video above, normally, in a free market economy, when demand goes down, prices are reduced. Not so in this case, though.

Pfizer has already forecasted expected revenues into the foreseeable future, and they’re not going to let real-world market demands dictate its revenue stream. No, they’re simply going to make up the difference through price hikes which, ultimately, will be paid by government and insurance companies.

By increasing their price by 400%, Pfizer is tipping its hand that its projections for vaccine uptake will decrease by the inverse or 75% as this would allow them to continue to earn their obscene profits. In other words Pfizer believes that COVID jab uptake will only be 25% of what is was under the emergency use authorization (EUA).

Indeed, to help ensure profits keep rolling into Big Pharma’s pockets as forecasted before public demand fell off a cliff, ACIP has also added to the shots to the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program,6 which provides vaccines to children at no or low cost using federal funding.7

Pfizer revenue is expected to reach $101.3 billion in 2022,8 thanks to the COVID jab and Paxlovid, and with that kind of revenue stream, you can be sure they’ll lobby states to mandate the shot for school children like they’ve never lobbied before.

Meanwhile, a judge is about to rule whether Pfizer and other COVID jab makers can be held accountable for fraud. As reported by Becker News:9

“The last shred of hope for holding Big Pharma accountable for fraud now rests on a lawsuit against vaccine manufacturer Pfizer. In an update provided to Becker News, a judge is soon expected to issue his ruling on whether or not the ‘Pfizergate’ fraud case proceeds to trial.

‘The judge is deciding … whether we go to discovery or the case is dismissed,’ Pfizer whistleblower Brook Jackson tells Becker News. After the CDC this week voted to add the COVID shots to its Childhood Vaccines Schedule, under the PREP Act, it has effectively been granted legal immunity to lawsuits.

There is no legal immunity if Pfizer committed fraud, however. In September, Pfizer whistleblower Brook Jackson came forward with her explosive report about the company’s alleged malfeasance, citing ‘falsified data’ and manipulated clinical trials.10

In January, she filed a lawsuit against Pfizer for committing fraud against the American people. In February, the judge ruled that the lawsuit, being led by attorney Robert Barnes, can proceed to pre-trial discovery phase. It is now on the verge of potentially going to trial.”

Pfizer has filed a motion to dismiss, which the U.S. government supports. As explained by legal analyst Katherine Watt:11

“Pfizer’s core argument in its Motion to Dismiss, which the US Government has now endorsed in its Oct. 4 statement of interest, is that clinical trials and clinical data from all of the sites, including the serious adverse event reports from the very start of the trials in Summer 2020, were not ‘material’ or ‘necessary’ to the FDA’s decisions to grant Emergency Use Authorization (Dec. 11, 2020) and approval (Aug. 23, 2021) to Pfizer’s product.”

Just how can clinical trial data, including adverse event reports, be immaterial and unnecessary to the FDA’s EUA decision? Is this not an admission — both by Pfizer and the U.S. government — that the FDA colluded with Pfizer to get the shots to market without regard for safety? That’s what it sounds like to me.

As you may have heard, CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky tested positive for COVID October 21, 2022, despite being up to date on her boosters. She received her fifth shot, the latest bivalent booster which has only been tested on mice, on September 22.12

Exactly one month later, she’s “experiencing mild symptoms” and is “isolating at home.”13 14 So, not only did the bivalent shot fail to protect Walensky, it failed in just four weeks.

Back in March 2021, Walensky went on record stating that CDC data “suggest that vaccinated people do not carry the virus.”15 Four months later, a CDC investigation of an outbreak in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, which occurred July 6 through July 25, 2021, found 74% of those who received a diagnosis of COVID-19, and 80% of hospitalizations, were among the fully vaccinated.16 17

The CDC also found that fully vaccinated individuals who contracted the infection had just as high a viral load in their nasal passages as unvaccinated individuals who got infected.18 In other words, the jabbed were determined to be just as infectious as the unjabbed. At this point, the list of instances where Walensky has been proven wrong is a long one.

To those actually analyzing and paying attention to the data — which Walensky apparently must not be doing, or else she wouldn’t be going to a public pharmacy to get injected for the fifth time — her COVID diagnosis is no surprise.

As noted by Dr. Charles Hoffe in a September 15, 2022, interview with Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson, “The more shots you get, the more likely you will die from COVID-19.” An excerpt from the interview is included above. You can find the full interview on Bitchute.19

According to the latest data from Canada, summarized by Hoffe, 85% of Canadians have received at least two COVID shots, and in June 2022, 92% of all COVID deaths were in fully jabbed individuals. And, while only 34% of Canadians had received three or four doses, they made up 81% of all COVID deaths in the month of June:

“This is the clearest evidence that the more shots you have, the more likely you will die of COVID,” Hoffe said. “These [shots] are severely damaging the immune system. And so, the discrimination against those who have chosen to be vaxx free is absolutely absurd because those are the people who are going to survive.”

In closing, many of us have wondered just how the FDA, CDC and other governmental agencies can act with impunity and get away with what is essentially murder.

Well, in a June 2022 interview20 with Dr. Jane Ruby of “The Jane Ruby Show,” Watt, the paralegal whom I quoted earlier, explained how the U.S. Congress has, over the past 30 years, slowly but surely paved the way for legalized tyranny and even genocide.

“According to Watt, the reason the Food and Drug Administration is not protecting the public from what is clearly the most dangerous ‘vaccine’ the world has ever seen is because it’s part of a biowarfare program run jointly by the FDA, Health and Human Services, the Defense Department, the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, Pfizer, Moderna and the World Health Organization.”

In short, what were once state and/or federal crimes or human rights violations have been legalized through statutory revisions. Watt also describes in an April 28, 2022, Substack article how this regulatory framework grew into being.21 As noted in that article:

“The basic goal of the architects, which has been achieved, was to set up legal conditions in which all governing power in the United States could be automatically transferred from the citizens and the three Constitutional branches into the two hands of the Health and Human Services Secretary, effective at the moment the HHS Secretary himself declared a public health emergency, legally transforming free citizens into enslaved subjects …

Congress and US Presidents legalized and funded the overthrow of the U.S. Constitution, the U.S. government and the American people, through a massive domestic bioterrorism program relabeled as a public health program, conducted by the HHS Secretary and Secretary of Defense on behalf of the World Health Organization and its financial backers.”

In another article titled “COVID-19 Injectable Bioweapons as Case Study in Legalized, Government-Operated Domestic Bioterrorism,” Watt explains why the FDA is not protecting the public from what is clearly the most dangerous “vaccine” the world has ever seen, by any metric whatsoever:22

“FDA is not pulling the EUA products from the market or stopping the ‘vaccination’ campaign because Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra and FDA Commissioner Robert Califf are running the US government’s bioterrorism program jointly with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Department of Justice Attorney General Merrick Garland, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Majorkas, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel, and World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.”

In her April 28 article,23 Watt lays out a plan for how to build a case “to prosecute members of Congress, presidents, HHS secretaries and federal judges for treason under 18 USC 2381.” Less drastic measures presented by Watt during her interview with Ruby include:24

  • Speaking out against and educating other about how the tyranny is being implemented to prevent it from getting worse — something professor Mattias Desmet has been recommending

  • Getting the U.S. out of the WHO and not funding it anymore

  • Congress could repeal the statutes that put this framework into place, or implement oversight to rein in the HHS, which is the institutional structure that is running this overthrow scheme, or dissolve the HHS altogether

  • Given enough political pressure the HHS could also voluntarily roll back the regulations that form the framework for legalized tyranny and bring back Nuremberg Code principles. For example, informed consent principles have been nullified, which is what has enabled mask and vaccine mandates. Those regulations need to be reversed and informed consent principles reinstated

  • Federal judges also need to start hearing Constitutional cases, which they’ve so far rejected

  • State legislatures can also consider secession to protect the Constitutional rights of their residents

If They Win: A Very Ordinary Genocide

By: Tessa Lena

  • Due to confusion, fragmentation, and abuse, atrocities that are obvious in the retrospect can feel “ordinary” and almost “rational” in real time

  • It is possible that we are living through what the Native intellectual Steven Newcomb calls “a view from the shore, referring to the original people of this land looking at the ships and not knowing that they will soon experience a “Great Reset” and a genocide”

  • Many of our ancestors in different parts of the world have lived through war and violent abuse, and the need for honest, difficult healing is vast

  • There is hope; but in order for that hope to come true, we need to act

When we look back at “successful” atrocities of the past, we often scratch our heads and wonder how come the people living at that time allowed it and didn’t see the obvious at all. But what if the atrocities that are so obvious in the retrospect felt “ordinary” and “logical” to the contemporaries?

And what if the thought of unimaginable cruelty was just too unbearable to them — just like it is “unthinkable” today to those who look at the obvious signs of an obvious totalitarian regime and tell themselves a fairy tale about a possibly incompetent but loving and caring bureaucrats?

What if just like today, when atrocities happened in the past, it felt all too confusing, all too fragmented, with each separate fragment of the plot explainable by rational words — and so, each new bizarre development of the grand atrocity felt like a separate, sudden and unexpected event?

And what if every time in history there is an atrocity perpetrated by the predators, it feels very ordinary to the contemporaries because on a sensory level, big words like “genocide” apply to horrible things from another time or place — but when it’s here and now, it feels like an unfortunate but rational circumstance?

A personal note: I think a lot about my family and the entire generation of my great grandparents who lived through the Bolshevik takeover of the vast land that became known as the Soviet Union — and its people. This must have felt so abusive and unnatural, I think — but then I look outside the window, and what I see also feels so abusive and unnatural — and yet it’s happening in broad daylight.

Is it “ordinary?” An ordinary abusive religious reform? An ordinary “stealth genocide” custom-designed for people whose noses are buried in their iPhones?

Are we experiencing what the brilliant Native intellectual Steven Newcomb calls “a view from the shore,” referring to the original people of this land who are looking at the weird ships for the first time and — as they are looking at the ships — they have no way of knowing that their free and independent existence has come to an end, and that they are about to live through an unthinkable sicko genocide?

And they don’t have a “genocide” on their minds at all? Because, see, in order to say “it’s a genocide,” enough time has to pass to do the body count … And the time has not passed yet? Are we the people looking at the proverbial ships from the shore? And what can we do to heal the atrocity that was done to the guardians of this land — and to prevent ours?

This story is not about isms at all, it’s about something much bigger than isms — as most of them have been used for good and for bad — but subjectively, I have special grudge against the “ism” that my own family had to live through in the not so distant part – the “commun-ism.”

The Soviet “new normal” ended up upending the lives of millions. It dictated the law, the relationships, the way of life and the worldview of millions for at least seventy years. But at the onset of it, was it possible for anyone to accept as reality the fact that a tiny group of terrorists would pull it off and maintain the lie for generations to come?

I often think about what it felt like to live through it all. The rumors, the fragmented news, the uncertainty … the sudden new commissar “boss” showing up in flesh, with a revolver in his hand … The shock, the grief, the excitement, the hope, the disappointment, the acceptance of feels inevitable now … The psychological adjustment, the new school curriculum, the gradual then sudden expropriation of the property one had to work for …

The change in language, the kids coming home from school with “new correct ideas,” telling you that you an ideological fossil at best and an enemy at worst … The dynamic of envy and rivalry in small communities leading to violent deaths … And more shock, grief, hope, disappointment, and acceptance of what seems to be here to stay.

Perhaps even some internal explaining away of the “new normal” as something possibly positive because … well, it’s here, and so what do you do? You adjust or die, right?

And then the “post-revolution babies” finally growing up — having learned and internalized the language and the thinking given to them by the Bolsheviks. Years later, they will be betrayed again — in a new way — and told by the children of the communist leaders come post-Soviet oligarchs that they can toss that language and thinking given to them by the Bolsheviks in the trash.

But that has happened yet and, as young adults, all they know was that it’s a new day, a new dawn … Their dawn and the only dawn they know.

The harsh slogans, the “progressive” language of Pravda, the commissars, the local meetings … the electricity … the “progress,” the factory chimney smoke, the war on farmers, the chemical fertilizers, the steel, the new medicine … the city folks coming to the village and telling the peasants how to farm … and so, if you have not emigrated and were still alive and saw through the abusive nature of all this, you still dealt with it because, what else do you do? You deal with it or die.

And then another war, more adversity, the need to die for Stalin and for the Motherland … the devastation, the bombings, the deaths, the suffering … the widows, the orphans, the tears, the howling from here to the sky, the forever sexlessness because the men are all gone and many will not return … the infrequent letters from the front for the lucky ones from their loved ones who are still alive … then the cold, and the hunger, and the hungry relative orphans at your doorstep asking for food, and more tears, and more howling — day after day — and day after day — and day after day — and then suddenly, it all ends, and the victory comes.

Then, the tears of joy, and more howling for the dead, and a new life … And by that time, who could even think about the lies of the Bolsheviks that lead to their terroristic coup? By that time, it had been only twenty eight years after their coup, but did it feel that way?

And then a new dawn, a new day … the hard work, and the post-war babies whose parents had been raised on “victory of communism” and Stalin and so on, and had sacrificed so much for that … Pravda headlines … local communist meetings … post-war poverty and occasional bright spots like finally owning one dress (that you don’t even want to wear so as not to accidentally ruin it), or an expensive family gramophone that someone had brought as a trophy from the war …

Summer camps for children, school essays on, what else, the victory of communism, DDT = spraying planes just like in the U.S. … “march of science,” reversing rivers and poisoning the land … but also time with the family, and the first love … and the new glitter of the city life … and following your dream, studying hard, being accepted to a good school …

Then the dorm, the side gig scrubbing hospital floors, studying like a maniac all day and all night … and finally, after being on the waitlist for several years, being assigned an apartment of your own and making it as a respectable well-off Soviet adult. And if somewhere down the lines you also managed to make “connections” at a local grocery store so that you know who to talk to in order to and buy the “good stuff” — or any stuff — then you truly made it in the Soviet world.

And then, new babies … babies like me who, while far from rich by the standards of the West, none the less knew nothing about the extreme hardship of the olden days. And by the time I was around, the “new Soviet normal” was on average not that bad, especially if you lived in Moscow and never had one dissident thought in your head because you had never been exposed to even one dissident thought.

Is it how all atrocities go? And what do I do with finding out not so long ago that my family has lost members to the Bolsheviks, but I didn’t know about it until I grew up? What I do with the fact that the rosy story of “progress” that I learned at school was a lie — and that there had been a major ongoing injustice, and a bloodshed? And that the communist lie was just a building block on top of many earlier abuses and lies that my ancestors had to go through? What do I do with that?

I would like to end with a nod at a sci-fi story about the loss of “cognitive autonomy” and “Interplanetary Holy Tech” that I wrote in 2019, without any intention to turn it into an instruction manual of an sort. But first, an excerpt from an interview with Google’s Eric Schmidt:

And now my sci-fi:

“By the time lawyers, doctors, bankers, and government officials were personally impacted and practically enslaved on a massive scale, it was too late. Big Tech controlled every aspect of life, tracked everything, and funded every industry. It became the default law enforcement agency and the default news publisher, and thus it had the power to make or break any pundit, academic, or politician.

Everyone — from governments to low-level assistants-to-robots — depended on technology for every life function. Sex and baby permits required impeccable Digital Citizen Scores. No one could even get a low-level job without abiding by algorithms — and most jobs were automated anyway. Municipal councils owed money for smart city maintenance. The grip was total.

And while many felt instinctively uneasy about giving up privacy and cognitive autonomy, they also felt alone and helpless. Jobs outside of tech were scarce, competition was harsh, and very few had the luxury to even ponder the big picture. So people kept their heads low and did what they had to do to feed their families — complied, wore mandatory smart masks, and learned how to code if they were allowed.

Developers and other high-level tech industry workers preserved their financial independence and cognitive autonomy the longest — gated coder communities became a fixture on every smart urban hub — but eventually they, too, became obsolete, as AI grew sophisticated enough to produce itself.

Shortly after the institution of biologically compromised governance was deprecated, Big Tech became Interplanetary Holy Tech, and you know the rest.”

Higher Daily Fiber Intake, Less Risk for Disease

  • Scientists in New Zealand perused thousands of studies spanning more than 40 years and identified fiber as a potential game-changer in the alleviation and prevention of many diseases

  • Eating foods containing lots of fiber was associated with as much as a 24% lower incidence of stroke, Type 2 diabetes and heart disease, and more

  • According to the study, consuming 25 to 29 grams of fiber every day is merely adequate; the data indicated that higher intakes would be more protective, and therefore advised

  • When you eat fiber-rich foods that require extra chewing and retain their basic structure in your gut, it can satisfy food cravings and positively impact your lipid and glucose levels, along with a number of additional benefits

Doctors have a lot to say about how people can avoid catastrophic health events like strokes and heart attacks, but scientists in New Zealand recently perused thousands of studies spanning more than 40 years and identified a nutrient that can be a genuine game-changer in the alleviation and prevention of many diseases: fiber.

Researchers from the University of Otago conducted their review to verify why fiber has such a stellar reputation in helping to maintain overall health. They scrutinized 185 observational studies, which involved 135 million person-years and 58 clinical trials, comprising 4,635 adult participants.

Results of the study, published in The Lancet, revealed that people who make a habit of eating high amounts of dietary fiber are 15 to 30% less likely to die prematurely from any cause compared to people who include the least amounts of fiber.1

The researchers also disclosed that eating foods containing lots of fiber is directly correlated to a 16% to 24% lower incidence of stroke, Type 2 diabetes and heart disease, as well as colorectal cancer.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the authors noted that the impact could translate to 13 fewer deaths and six fewer cases of coronary heart disease per 1,000 participants, and that eating plenty of high-fiber foods is also linked to decreased weight and optimized cholesterol levels.2

The Lancet study wasn’t the first to show how important fiber consumption is. A 2014 study published by the American Journal of Epidemiology showed much the same thing: that a 10% reduced risk for all-cause mortality was observed for every 10 grams of fiber participants added to their overall fiber intake.3

The scientists in New Zealand used only healthy participants so their findings couldn’t be applied to people with existing chronic diseases. Jim Mann, a professor at the university and corresponding study author, noted several significant findings in regard to increased fiber consumption and the reduced risk of disease and death. According to Mann:

“The health benefits of fiber are supported by over 100 years of research into its chemistry, physical properties, physiology and effects on metabolism. Fiber-rich whole foods that require chewing and retain much of their structure in the gut increase satiety and help weight control and can favorably influence lipid and glucose levels.

The breakdown of fiber in the large bowel by the resident bacteria has additional wide-ranging effects including protection from colorectal cancer.”4

Besides looking at the causes of premature deaths from certain cancers, the researchers focused specifically on cancers associated with obesity, such as endometrial, esophageal, breast and prostate cancers, the study stated.

In recommending a healthy amount of fiber to consume, the authors noted that for every 8 grams of increased fiber intake per day, the study subjects showed a 5 to 27% decrease in incidences of Type 2 diabetes and colorectal cancer. Protection against stroke and breast cancer also increased.

So how much fiber is recommended to optimize your health? According to the study, consuming 25 to 29 grams every day is merely adequate; their data indicated that higher intakes would be more protective, and therefore advised. Further, diets stressing a low glycemic index and low glycemic load, besides allowing added sugars, were shown to provide limited protection against Type 2 diabetes and stroke.

Mann emphasized that findings from the study point to a dire need for a change in nutrition guidelines to focus on an overall increase of fiber intake, not just because it’s “good for you,” but because it’s shown to literally change the dynamics of disease.

One thing to note is the mention that bacteria in your gut impacts so much of your overall health, not to mention your ability to maintain a healthy weight and fight off disease. It’s no secret that I believe gut bacteria to be a huge key to health, and maintaining a good balance of bacteria to ensure a healthy microbiome is crucial to many aspects of health, particularly for those fighting cancer.

There are two different types of fiber, and both are important. Soluble fiber easily dissolves in water and becomes gel-like in your system, acting as a sponge in some respects, as it moves into every crevice of your colon and helps to slow your digestion while also slowing the rate at which other nutrients are digested. The positive effects of soluble fiber come from actions that it both fosters and prevents.

Insoluble fiber, which does not dissolve, stays basically intact as it moves through your colon. Besides being completely devoid of calories, it helps prevent constipation because it “gathers” the byproducts and fluids you don’t want; it forms the waste that will eventually — and optimally — leave your body in the form of waste.

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics,5 25 grams of fiber per day is sufficient for women, while 38 grams is recommended for men. However, in my opinion, this is one case where more really is better: My recommendation for daily fiber intake is 25 to 50 grams per 1,000 calories consumed.

Offering a synopsis of how fiber works in your body, Mann noted that when you eat fiber-rich foods that require extra chewing, and which also retain their basic structure in your gut, it can accomplish several goals. It satisfies food cravings and contributes to weight control, while positively impacting your lipid and glucose levels.

As bacteria break down fiber in your large intestine, they impart a number of additional benefits, not the least of which is protection from colorectal cancer. There are a number of ways to increase your fiber intake.

According to Mann’s team, “Foods rich in fiber include whole grains, vegetables, fruit and pulses, such as peas, beans, lentils and chickpeas.”6 Vegetables and fruits are whole foods that should be the backbone of your diet, but there are issues with both grain, including whole grain, and beans, such as those listed.

Yes, lentils are an example of a highly nutritious legume as they contain high amounts of folate, protein, manganese, iron, thiamin and phosphorus. But beans, lentils and chickpeas are also examples of foods that contain lectins that bind to carbohydrates and attach to cells that allow them to wreak havoc as part of the plant’s self-defense mechanism against pests, and have the potential to harm humans.

Steven Gundry, the doctor and author who in recent years has called widespread attention to the problems you can experience when you eat foods with lectins, notes that lectins can trigger uncomfortable physical symptoms similar to those caused by gluten, although in both cases, it depends on your system, and everyone’s system is different.

In addition, beans are high in net carbs, and therefore best avoided due to their toxic or allergenic effects. And that brings us to wheat, which also contains lectins.7 In fact, wheat and other seeds of the grass family, including soy, soy products, peanuts and some nightshade foods such as potatoes, bell peppers, eggplant and tomatoes, are among foods that contain the highest amounts of lectins.

One of the reasons wheat ends up being toxic is that it’s attracted to glucosamine, a monosaccharide found in your joints.8 (You may know that glucosamine, a compound your body produces, is a common supplement many people take to alleviate joint pain, although how glucosamine works should be researched by individuals before beginning a regimen.)9

Anyone with autoimmune conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, obesity, diabetes or thyroid dysfunction, among others, is advised to be careful when eating foods containing lectins. You should at least curtail your intake of lectin-containing foods, Gundry advises.10

Cooking them correctly — read: thoroughly, such as with a pressure cooker, and with lots of water to help rid them of the toxicity — is important to avoid what can result in painful symptoms.

Fortunately, it’s easy to get plenty of fiber in your diet without focusing on grains. Healthy foods with high amounts of fiber include green peas, artichoke, baked sweet potato with the peel intact, spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and many other vegetables.

Additional foods that are also excellent in providing fiber include pears, raspberries, stewed prunes, dried figs or dates (eaten in moderation due to high sugar content), pumpkin, almonds, apples with the skin intact, bananas (also eaten in moderation) and oranges. Organic psyllium seed husk (nonorganic psyllium is typically loaded with pesticides) is another excellent way to optimize your fiber intake.

When food gets “stuck” in your colon and refuses to leave, it causes a number of issues, not the least of which is pain. Eating a high-fiber diet has been shown to help prevent and alleviate leaky gut, suffered by as much as 80% of the population in the U.S.11 It starts in your small intestine and involves toxins caused by undigested foods, leading to allergies and worse.

Fortunately, few risks are associated with a high intake of fiber, although the featured study noted that people who have low iron or mineral levels who consume fiber in the form of bread, pasta and/or processed foods may further deplete their iron stores. In addition, “the study mainly relates to naturally-occurring fiber rich foods rather than synthetic and extracted fiber, such as powders, that can be added to foods.”12

Image: Why we are donating MORE money to health freedom warriors (plus other breaking news)

(Natural News) Over the weekend, we visited Andy Wakefield on the set of his new film which is due to be released in 2023. There, we handed the film company a donation check for $7500 to help support the costs of the film (which are no doubt substantial), initiating our new round of donations to health freedom champions.

Thanks to the generosity of Gary Heavin, we have been tasked with distributing $100K in donations to various health freedom warriors and champions who we believe are doing extraordinary work for humanity. This is on top of the $50K in donations we made ourselves earlier this year, and in fact it was that original $50K donation that spurred Mr. Heavin to hand us the $100K for distribution to health freedom champions.

Here’s a photo from this weekend (taken by Robert Scott Bell, by the way), of myself with Andy Wakefield, on the set of his new movie coming out in 2023:

Some of the recipients of this $100K include the following (not a complete list yet, but gives you an idea of who is receiving donations)

We believe that all these individuals, organizations and channels are doing outstanding work for humanity and deserve our support.

We thank Gary Heavin for this gift, and we are humbled by the trust placed in us by Mr. Heavin in deciding how to distribute these funds.

For the record, these donations do not mean that Gary Heavin nor this publisher wholly endorses every statement made by every individual on this list. Rather, they are judged by their overall contributions to the critical debate about health freedom — something we believe is crucial for the survival of human civilization.

We plan to publish a complete, final list once the donations are finished. If you see your name on this list, expect to see a donation soon via whatever method your website specifies (mailed check, online credit card donations or wire transfer). Please have patience with the accounting process because this takes time to get fully accomplished.

Gary Heavin also made a smaller (but still substantial) donation to Brighteon which is helping support Brighteon.com new features and the Brighteon.TV broadcast (including BrighteonRadio.com). We thank Mr. Heavin for his generous support and we pledge to put these funds to their intended use, helping to empower and uplift humanity so that we may survive the covid tyranny and vaccine tyranny that has been inflicted upon our species.

I discuss these donations and much more in today’s Situation Update podcast which also covers the diesel shortage and many other world events, including the bizarre new game invented by Paul Pelosi (played while standing in underwear) called Rock, Paper, Scissors, HAMMER.

US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.
