How Safe Are the Nanoparticles in Moderna’s Vaccine?

Both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are made with messenger RNA (mRNA) technology, which works by turning your body’s cells into veritable drug factories. The mRNA vaccines teach your cells to produce a protein, or piece of protein, that triggers an immune response, including the production of antibodies.1

However, because natural mRNA is easily broken down, this means the experimental gene therapy needs a special delivery system to make it to the body’s cells.

Moderna and Pfizer are using lipid nanoparticles that contain polyethylene glycol (PEG)2 for this purpose. The mRNA is wrapped in lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) that carry it to your cells, and the LNPs are “PEGylated” — that is, chemically attached to PEG molecules to increase stability.3

This experimental mRNA gene therapy and its lipid nanoparticle-based delivery system have never been approved for use in a vaccine or drug.4 This includes Pfizer’s and Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccines, which were only “authorized” for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration — not “approved.”5

Significant concerns have been raised over the technology, including the lipid nanoparticles, and Moderna actually abandoned it in 2017 after studies revealed a high rate of adverse effects.

Moderna Abandoned mRNA Project in 2017

Moderna partnered with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci to create its COVID-19 vaccine. In February 2020, its stock price increased 78.1% when it announced that its messenger RNA vaccine was ready for clinical trials,6 propelling its CEO Stéphane Bancel into the billionaire’s club.

In 2016, Bancel had talked up another of the company’s up-and-coming products, a drug treatment for a rare disease called Crigler-Najjar syndrome. Those with Crigler-Najjar syndrome are missing a liver enzyme needed to break down bilirubin. Moderna’s experimental treatment used mRNA to encode for the missing enzyme, and was encased in LNPs as the delivery agent.

But, as STAT reported in 2017, the treatment was “indefinitely delayed” because it “never proved safe enough to test in humans.”7 According to STAT:8

“… mRNA is a tricky technology. Several major pharmaceutical companies have tried and abandoned the idea, struggling to get mRNA into cells without triggering nasty side effects … The indefinite delay on the Crigler-Najjar project signals persistent and troubling safety concerns for any mRNA treatment that needs to be delivered in multiple doses …

… And for its chemists, those nanoparticles created a daunting challenge: Dose too little, and you don’t get enough enzyme to affect the disease; dose too much, and the drug is too toxic for patients … Moderna could not make its therapy work, former employees and collaborators said. The safe dose was too weak, and repeat injections of a dose strong enough to be effective had troubling effects on the liver in animal studies.”

Moderna Says LNPs Could Trigger ‘Significant Adverse Events’

In their corporate prospectus9 released in 2018 at the time of their stock market launch, Moderna acknowledged that their LNPs carried risks.10 They stated:11

“No mRNA drug has been approved in this new potential category of medicines, and may never be approved as a result of efforts by others or us. mRNA drug development has substantial clinical development and regulatory risks due to the novel and unprecedented nature of this new category of medicines.”

They also laid out the many potential risks related to mRNA or its LNP delivery system. Among them:

  • “Gene therapies and mRNA based medicines may activate one or more immune responses against any and all components of the drug product (e.g., the mRNA or the delivery vehicle, such as a lipid nanoparticle (LNP)) as well as against the encoded protein, giving rise to potential immune reaction related adverse events.”12
  • “Most of our investigational medicines are formulated and administered in an LNP which may lead to systemic side effects related to the components of the LNP which may not have ever been tested in humans.”13
  • “While we have continued to optimize our LNPs, there can be no assurance that our LNPs will not have undesired effects. Our LNPs could contribute, in whole or in part, to one or more of the following: immune reactions, infusion reactions, complement reactions, opsonation reactions, antibody reactions including IgA, IgM, IgE or IgG or some combination thereof, or reactions to the PEG from some lipids or PEG otherwise associated with the LNP.”14
  • “Certain aspects of our investigational medicines may induce immune reactions from either the mRNA or the lipid as well as adverse reactions within liver pathways or degradation of the mRNA or the LNP, any of which could lead to significant adverse events in one or more of our clinical trials.”15

LNPs May Enter Your Brain

In a letter to Dr. Peter Marks,16 director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) questioned whether LNPs are safe, as research shows they readily enter the brain:

“A 2018 study titled Lipid Nanoparticles: A Novel Approach for Brain Targeting17 states, ‘… lipid nanoparticles are taken up readily by the brain because of their lipophilic nature. The bioacceptable and biodegradable nature of lipid nanoparticles makes them less toxic and suited for brain targeting.’ The article also states, ‘these nanostructures need to be investigated intensively to successfully reach the clinical trials stage.'”

The study’s authors suggested lipid nanoparticles like those in COVID-19 vaccines may be ideal for drug delivery systems because of their ability to bypass the blood brain barrier and “reach the target site due to their small size and ability to dodge the reticular endothelial system.”18

I recently interviewed Judy Mikovits, Ph.D., a cellular and molecular biologist, and she agreed that LNPs can enter the brain can contribute to pathologic neuroinflammation, possibly leading to adverse effects like multiple sclerosis or ALS. Additionally, these LNPs carrying the mRNA last for long periods of time, forcing your cells to continuously produce the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. I encourage you to review my article and interview with Judy.

The mRNA vaccine triggers your body to produce antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, and spike proteins in turn contain syncytin-homologous proteins that are essential for various functions in your body, including the formation of the placenta in pregnant women.

“Syncytin is the name given to the endogenous gamma retrovirus envelope,” Mikovits said, “and we know if it’s expressed overtly in the body in different places … for instance, in the brain, where these lipid nanoparticles will go, then you’ve got multiple sclerosis.” She continued:

“So the expression of that gene alone enrages microglia, literally inflames, and dysregulates the communication between the brain microglia, which are critical for clearing toxins and pathogens in the brain, and the communication with the astrocytes that dysregulates not only the immune system but the endocannabinoid system …

We’ve already seen in the clinical trials … multiple sclerosis as an adverse event, and we’re being lied to. ‘Oh, those people had that.’ No, they didn’t. And we also see myalgic encephalomyelitis, inflammation of the brain and the spinal cord.”

A petition to the European Medicine Agency also called for a halt to Phase 3 clinical trials of Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine, in part due to the concern that if a woman’s immune system starts reacting against syncytin-1, there is the possibility she could become infertile.19

Immune Reactions Are Another Key Concern

According to ICAN in their letter to the FDA,20 the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine may prime the body to have an immune reaction to LNPs, such that when the second dose is received, a stronger likelihood for adverse events exists:

“An article titled Side Effects and COVID-19 Vaccines: What to Expect, published by Johns Hopkins states, ‘Side effects were more frequent after the second dose in the vaccine trials.’21

This event is demonstrated in Exogenous nanoparticles and endogenous crystalline molecules as danger signals for the NLRP3 inflammasomes, which provides support that increasingly inflammatory side-effects observed in the vaccine arm of the trial are attributable to LNPs and that they get worse with repeated injection.

This increased reactogenicity is clearly illustrated in COVID-19 Clinical Trials for both the Pfizer22 and Moderna.”23

Moderna’s report of clinical safety to the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee also noted, “In Study 301, solicited local and systemic ARs [adverse reactions] were more common in participants who received mRNA-1273 compared with placebo, and systemic ARs were more common after the second injection.”24

Their data show that Grade 3 systemic adverse reactions, which are severe enough to prevent daily activities, rose from 2.9% after the first dose to 15.7% after the second dose. Grade 4 reactions, which require emergency room visits or hospitalizations, also increased, from five cases after the first injection to 14 cases after the second.25

At least eight people have also had severe allergy-like reactions to Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, prompting NIAID to convene several meetings to discuss the adverse events with officials from Pfizer and Moderna, along with the FDA and independent scientists.26

Many suspect the PEG found in both Pfizer’s and Moderna’s vaccines might be the culprit causing allergic reactions and anaphylaxis. PEG has never been used in an approved vaccine, but is used in certain drugs known to cause anaphylaxis.27 According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., “studies show that 1 in 7 Americans28 may unknowingly be at risk of experiencing an allergic reaction to PEG.”29

He believes “everyone should be screened for anti-PEG antibodies before getting the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines,” adding that “It is unconscionable that, instead, the FDA and CDC are encouraging people to go ahead and risk a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction and just assume that someone will be on hand to save them.”30

Moderna’s Vaccine Facing Legal Troubles?

It’s also worth noting that Moderna has no legal rights to a key patent for its vaccine delivery system, and company executives are among those who have dumped their stock. Both Moderna and the NIH are essentially engaged in patent infringement, as a core part of the technology — the LNP technology that is part of the vaccine delivery system — belongs to a small Canadian biotech company called Arbutus.31

Moderna sought to invalidate the patent owned by Arbutus Biopharma, but lost the challenge at the end of July 2020.32 After losing the challenge, Moderna said their LNP technology is actually far more advanced than Arbutus’ and claimed “the LNP used to make mRNA-1273, its Covid-19 vaccine candidate, is not covered by the Arbutus patent.”33

“Whatever happens on the intellectual property front, it is highly unlikely that a patent issue will get in the way of the development or distribution of a Covid-19 vaccine,” Forbes noted in July 2020.34

Indeed the vaccine has already been rolled out, but before making your decision on whether or not to receive it, be sure you’re informed about the many unanswered questions and risks surrounding it, including not only those related to LNPs but also another significant issue known as antibody?dependent enhancement (ADE).

What to Do if You or Someone You Know Received the Vaccine

The primary reason why I wanted to interview Mikovits was to find out her recommendations for those who chose to get the vaccine and now regret it. Interestingly, what I learned is that you would use the same strategies that you would use to treat the actual SARS-CoV-2 infection.

I’ve written many articles over the past year detailing simple strategies to improve your immune system, and with a healthy immune system, you’ll get through it without incident even if you end up getting sick. Below, I’ll summarize some of the strategies you can use both to prevent COVID-19 and address any side effects you may encounter from the vaccine.

First of all, you’ll want to eat a “clean,” ideally organic diet. Avoid processed foods of all kinds, as they are loaded with damaging omega-6 linoleic acid that wrecks your mitochondrial function. Also consider nutritional ketosis and time-restricted eating, both of which will help you optimize your metabolic machinery and mitochondrial function. As noted by Mikovits:

“We have to think about detoxing metal, we have to think about glyphosate … We have to prevent inflammation in all tissue sites and we have to keep our immune system healthy … You’re going to want to be burning ketones instead [of sugar] for the neuroinflammation, so you’re going to want to get into ketosis and take the stress off the mTOR pathway.”

With regard to glyphosate, a simple way to block glyphosate uptake is to take glycine. Approximately 3 grams, about half a teaspoon, a few times a day should be sufficient, along with an organic diet, so that you’re not adding more glyphosate with each meal.

To improve detoxification, I recommend activating your natural glutathione production with molecular hydrogen tablets. All of these strategies should help improve your resilience against SARS-CoV-2, and may even help your body detoxify if you’ve made the mistake of getting this experimental gene therapy.

Another helpful strategy is to maintain a neutral pH. You want your pH to be right around 7, which you can measure with an inexpensive urine strip.

The lower your pH, the more acidic you are. A simple way to raise your pH if it’s too acidic (and most people are) is to take one-fourth teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) or potassium bicarbonate in water a few times a day. Improving your pH will improve the resiliency of your immune system and reduce the mineral loss from your bones, thereby reducing your risk of osteoporosis.

Helpful Supplements

Nutritional supplementation can also be helpful. Among the most important are:

Vitamin D Vitamin D supplements are readily available and one of the least expensive supplements on the market. All things considered, vitamin D optimization is likely the easiest and most beneficial strategy that anyone can do to minimize their risk of COVID-19 and other infections, and can strengthen your immune system in a matter of a few weeks.

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) NAC is a precursor to reduced glutathione, which appears to play a crucial role in COVID-19. According to one literature analysis,35 glutathione deficiency may actually be associated with COVID-19 severity, leading the author to conclude that NAC may be useful both for its prevention and treatment.

Zinc Zinc plays a very important role in your immune system’s ability to ward off viral infections. Like vitamin D, zinc helps regulate your immune function36 — and a combination of zinc with a zinc ionophore, like hydroxychloroquine or quercetin, was in 2010 shown to inhibit SARS coronavirus in vitro. In cell culture, it also blocked viral replication within minutes.37 Importantly, zinc deficiency has been shown to impair immune function.38

Melatonin Boosts immune function in a variety of ways and helps quell inflammation. Melatonin may also prevent SARS-CoV-2 infection by recharging glutathione39 and enhancing vitamin D synthesis, among other things.

Vitamin C A number of studies have shown vitamin C can be very helpful in the treatment of viral illnesses, sepsis and ARDS,40 all of which are applicable to COVID-19. Its basic properties include anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, antioxidant, antithrombotic and antiviral activities. At high doses, it actually acts as an antiviral drug, actively inactivating viruses. Vitamin C also works synergistically with quercetin.41

Quercetin A powerful immune booster and broad-spectrum antiviral, quercetin was initially found to provide broad-spectrum protection against SARS coronavirus in the aftermath of the 2003 SARS epidemic,42,43,44 and evidence suggests it may be useful for the prevention and treatment of SARS-CoV-2 as well.

B vitamins B vitamins can also influence several COVID-19-specific disease processes, including45 viral replication and invasion, cytokine storm induction, adaptive immunity and hypercoagulability.

Mikovits also recommends Type 1 interferons.

“The type 1 [interferon] — the primary source of interferon, alpha and beta — is the plasmacyte dendritic cell. We know that’s dysregulated in people with HIV, with XMRVs, with aberrant retroviral expression. Those people can’t make interferon.

Type 1 interferons can be provided in a spray that you can spray directly into your throat, your nose, and that will give you the protection you need so that the virus doesn’t [replicate]. It degrades it right away … Should you feel cough or fever, headache, immediately up your Type 1 interferon. Take a couple of sprays of that per day prophylactically as well, and that will keep the viral load down.

We know [SARS-CoV-2] isn’t a natural virus, we know this is lab-created, but it’ll calm the expression, it’ll degrade the RNA for those who can’t degrade the RNA, and that’s the job of Type 1 interferon — to have your macrophages be these little Pac-Men that simply degrade the RNA.”

Nebulized Peroxide — My Favorite Treatment Choice

My personal choice for the treatment of COVID-19 symptoms is nebulized peroxide. It’s a home remedy I recommend everyone familiarize themselves with, as in many cases it can improve symptoms in mere hours. You can also use it as a preventive strategy if you know you’ve been exposed to someone who is ill.

Nebulizing hydrogen peroxide into your sinuses, throat and lungs is a simple, straightforward way to augment your body’s natural expression of hydrogen peroxide to combat infections and can be used both prophylactically after known exposure to COVID-19 and as a treatment for mild, moderate and even severe illness.

Dr. David Brownstein, who has successfully treated over 100 COVID-19 patients with nebulized peroxide, published a case paper46 about this treatment in the July 2020 issue of Science, Public Health Policy and The Law. He also reviews its benefits in “How Nebulized Peroxide Helps Against Respiratory Infections.”

Nebulized hydrogen peroxide is extremely safe, and all you need is a desktop nebulizer and food-grade hydrogen peroxide, which you’ll need to dilute with saline to 0.1% strength. I recommend buying these items beforehand so that you have everything you need and can begin treatment at home at the first signs of a respiratory infection.

peroxide dilution charts

In the video above, I go over the basics of this treatment. Be sure to buy a nebulizer that plugs into an electrical outlet, as battery-driven ones are too low-powered to be truly effective. Also make sure your nebulizer comes with a face mask, not just a mouth piece. If it doesn’t come with a face mask, you can pick one up separately. Just search Amazon for “nebulizer face mask for adults.”

Eight Different Plasticizers Found in 90% of People

The Norwegian Institute of Public Health found that 90% of those tested from 2016 to 2017 had eight different plasticizers in their urine.1 Plasticizers are colorless, odorless chemicals composed mostly of phthalates.2 They are used to change the elasticity of materials in the manufacturing process.

Plastic products and components have been integrated into most people’s daily lives. You can find them in shower curtains, take-out containers and storage bags — but did you know that clothing, paper coffee cups, tea bags, chewing gum and cigarette butts also contain plastic?3

Oceana International describes plastic material a little bit like a curious cat, finding places in the environment where it shouldn’t fit and being able to sneak in.4 Plastics can be found in seawater, sea salt, shellfish and whale stomachs and in your drinking water. One study in 2014 found 24 brands of beer all tested positive for plastic.5

In 2010, as evidence of the negative health effects of bisphenol-A (BPA) was being published and becoming accepted in the science community,6 Karin Michels, Harvard associate professor of epidemiology, was quoted in Harvard News, saying:7

“The nightmare scenario is that we one day find out that a lot more of our current disorders, including infertility and cancer, may be due to bisphenol A and only show up after cumulative exposure. But by then, we all have accumulated so much exposure that it’s too late to reverse the effects. You could say that about other substances just as much, but right now, bisphenol A is a top concern.”

According to the recent research data, the first rung of the nightmare scenario may be here, as the ubiquitous use of plastic chemicals and plasticizers has, in turn, allowed them to accumulate in people, including children.8

Plasticizer Chemicals Found in 90% of People Tested

The data released by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health were part of EuroMix, a European project focused on identifying risk assessment for exposure to multiple chemicals using techniques proposed by The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission.9

Their aim is to provide data to refine risk assessment relevant to food safety and public health and provide information to industry and regulatory bodies. In one recent study,10 a team analyzed urine from 44 men and 100 women residing In Norway.11

The early findings show the presence of the chemicals, but further assessment is needed to define the quantity found in individuals. The scientists measured three groups of chemicals including plasticizers, bisphenols and parabens. The data revealed eight different plasticizers in 90% of those tested.

Plasticizers are found in plastic products and can leak out of product packaging. They are also found in personal care products, such as hand cream, toothpaste, shaving products and shower gel. In addition to phthalates, 90% of the participants’ urine tested positive for bisphenol-A and triclosan. Interestingly, the researchers found the level of bisphenol in the urine was positively related to the participant’s consumption of bread, edible fats and a variety of drinks.

Nearly 50% had parabens in their urine, though it was found more often in women than in men. While parabens are used as preservatives in food, they’re also commonly found in personal care products and cosmetics.

The scientists believe the number of chemicals found was lower than would be measured in the general population as the participants were not representative of the Norwegian general public — for instance, no one in the survey smoked and all of the participants had higher education. Trine Husøy led the research project for EuroMix and spoke with a Norwegian news agency about the findings:12

“Finding so many different chemicals in people’s urine is worrying. In contrast to natural substances, some synthetic substances can accumulate in the food chain, and many of these are particularly dangerous to our health. We will investigate this further.

Products that remain on the skin often contribute more than products that are washed off. Foods packed in plastic packaging will contain more plasticizers.”

Have a Bite of Phthalates With Your Meal

Since the chemicals are not strongly bound to the product, with use they leach out and dissipate into the surrounding environment, including your drinking water and food. Have you noticed how flexible plastics can get hard and more brittle over time?

That’s because the plasticizers are continuously released and eventually change the chemical composition of the product you’re using. Although phthalates are “reasonably considered to be a human carcinogen” by the National Toxicology Program,13 the politics of plastics and regulation have allowed them to remain in many of the products you use every day.

One study sought to evaluate your risk of exposure to phthalates from food.14 Researchers analyzed the habits and urinary metabolites of 8,877 participants who were age 6 and older and discovered those who ate at fast-food restaurants had a greater excretion of di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) and diisononyl phthalate (DiNP) than those who did not eat fast food.

This study evaluated the participants’ exposure and not the potential health effects, finding there was a dose-dependent relationship between the amount of fast food eaten and the level of phthalates in urinary metabolites.

Interestingly, when the scientists evaluated the type of phthalates absorbed, they found the participants who ate more condiments, potatoes and vegetables from fast food had a higher level of DEHP, and those who ate more meat and grains had higher levels of DiNP metabolites.

If plasticizers and other plastic chemicals leaching into your food isn’t enough, maybe you would like to consider eating food made from plastic? The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) awarded Iowa State University and partners a $2.7 million grant to develop a process that makes food from plastic and paper waste.15 They intend to feed U.S. military men and women this “nourishment” to improve military logistics for extended missions.

They estimate the total grant award may reach $7.8 million before the project ends. Although the initial intent is to feed military personnel, it may not be long before such a system would be proposed as a means of providing inexpensive foodstuffs for others.

A press release from Iowa State University even suggested the process could “go a long way toward solving looming problems of plastic disposal and ensuring a viable global food chain.”16 

Ingestion of Plastic Particles May Start in Infancy

Around the world, the baby bottle industry was valued at $2.6 billion in 2018 and the plastic segment accounted for 44.1% of the overall share.17 If you are currently using plastic bottles for your baby, consider switching to glass since research has shown microplastics may be released from the bottle into the contents.18

To collect the data, the scientists used new, cleaned and sterilized polypropylene bottles filled with water.19 After shaking the bottles for one minute, they analyzed the contents and discovered microplastics were being released into the water, sometimes at a level of up to 16 million plastic particles per liter.

The average bottle tested reached 4 million particles for every liter of water. These are microplastic particles that end up in your baby’s food. Researchers predict that worldwide, infants up to 12 months may be exposed to 14,600 to 4.55 million microplastic particles every day.20

In the study, researchers use purified water and not standard drinking water.21 Since standard drinking water also contains microplastics,22 this means the number may have been significantly underestimated.

In one literature review that calculated the amount of plastic the average person consumes, researchers estimated the average person drinks 1,769 plastic particles from tap water every day.23 In the U.S., 94.4% of all tap water samples contained plastic fibers, as did 82.4% of samples from India and 72.2% of samples from Europe.

Health Issues Linked to Heavyweight Hormone Disrupters

Scientists recognize that the health effects of plastics and the chemicals that create them are both direct and indirect.24 Many of the health effects attributed to BPA — hundreds of animal studies have linked BPA to abnormal development of the brain, breast and prostate — are likely related to the fact it is a synthetic hormone that mimics estrogen,25 much like phthalates.26

Phthalates are remarkably powerful hormone disruptors capable of causing males in many species to develop feminine characteristics.27 This conclusion was reached after an evaluation of the damage to the reproductive health of wildlife, but the results are relevant to humans as well, due to similar sex hormone receptors.

By disrupting the endocrine system, phthalates may cause testicular cancer, low sperm count, genital malformation and infertility found in animal species including whales, deer, otters and bears to name a few.

One study published by the American Chemical Society found pregnant women exposed to phthalates in food packaging, personal care items and other products had an increased risk of miscarriage between Weeks 5 and 13 of pregnancy.28

A research team from Columbia University found women with high levels had babies who had higher risk of developing asthma between ages 5 and 11.29 Researchers were forced to compare women with the highest level against those with the lowest level of phthalates as they did not find anyone with a zero level.

Exposure during pregnancy can also alter the production of thyroid hormones in the unborn child, which are critical for proper development in the first trimester.30 Women with high levels of DEHP during pregnancy had double the risk a male child would develop a hydrocele, a buildup of fluid in the scrotum that increases the size of the scrotum and causes discomfort.31

Adults also experience the negative effects of phthalates in the body including lower vitamin D levels with a higher intake of phthalates.32 Low levels of vitamin D are linked to a variety of different health conditions, including depression,33 cognitive decline in older adults,34 chronic migraine headaches35 and poor outcomes from COVID-19 infections.36

Tips to Reduce Your Use of Toxic Chemical Products

Considering research confirms that environmental estrogens have multigenerational effects,37 it is wise to take proactive steps to limit your exposure. This is particularly important for younger people who have more years to accumulate plastic pollution and may be more vulnerable to its effects during development.

While it’s virtually impossible to steer clear of all sources, you can minimize your exposure by keeping some key principles in mind. Start the process slowly and make the changes a habit in your life so they stick.

Avoid plastic containers and plastic wrap for food and personal care products. Store food and drinks in glass containers instead.

Avoid plastic children’s toys. Use toys made of natural substances, such as wood and organic materials.

Read labels on your cosmetics and avoid those containing phthalates.

Avoid products labeled with “fragrance,” including air fresheners, as this catch-all term may include phthalates commonly used to stabilize the scent and extend the life of the product.

Read labels looking for PVC-free products, including children’s lunch boxes, backpacks and storage containers.

Do not microwave food in plastic containers or covered in plastic wrap.

Frequently vacuum and dust rooms with vinyl blinds, wallpaper, flooring and furniture that may contain phthalates, as the chemical collects in dust and is easily ingested by children and can settle on your food plates.

Ask your pharmacist if your prescription pills are coated to control when they dissolve as the coating may contain phthalates.

Eat mostly fresh, raw whole foods. Packaging is often a source of phthalates.

Use glass baby bottles instead of plastic. Breastfeed exclusively for the first year if you can, to avoid plastic nipples and bottles altogether.

Remove your fruit and vegetables from plastic bags immediately after coming home from the grocery store and wash before storing them; alternatively, use cloth bags to bring home your produce.

Cash register receipts are heat printed and often contain BPA. Handle the receipt as little as possible and ask the store to switch to BPA-free receipts.

Use natural cleaning products or make your own.

Replace feminine hygiene products with safer alternatives.

Avoid fabric softeners and dryer sheets; make your own to reduce static cling.

Check your home’s tap water for contaminants and filter the water if necessary.

Teach your children not to drink from the garden hose, as many contain plasticizers such as phthalates.

Use reusable shopping bags for groceries.

Take your own leftovers container to restaurants. Avoid disposable utensils and straws.

Bring your own mug for coffee and bring drinking water from home in glass water bottles instead of buying bottled water.

Consider switching to bamboo toothbrushes and brushing your teeth with coconut oil and baking soda to avoid plastic toothpaste tubes.

But, But (Splutter!) I’m An American!

 By Anna Von Reitz

I am getting a lot of Newbie-Push-Back of the aforementioned kind — people who are just now waking up and who are distressed and confused enough already, being offended by the idea that they are not Americans.

Well, they should be upset. I know I was hopping mad, maybe beyond hopping mad when I found out that I’d been listed as a British Territorial Citizen and as a Municipal citizen of the United States, that is, just about everything and anything but what I am.

Instead of being recognized as Americans, we’ve been registered as Dual Federal Citizens, instead.

Say what? I explain it….. say what?

It takes a while to sink in and then, the anger and incredulity starts.

How could anyone mistake me for anything but an American? I was born here, went to school here….. but, the fact is, that most of us have been misidentified throughout our lives as a result of Unconscionable Citizenship Contracts established “for” us while we were still babes in our cradles.

We never knew that we were identified as Federal Citizens. Most of us never knew (and we weren’t taught) what a federal citizen is. We were too young to pick up on anything about that, and our parents weren’t given any disclosure, so they couldn’t tell us, either.

Pop Quiz: What’s the one contract you can’t break?

Answer: The one you don’t know exists.

That’s why it comes as a great, and for many Americans, unpleasant surprise, to learn that they have spent most of their lives as a presumed loyal Subject of Queen Elizabeth II.

It’s okay for the Tories, but for the rest of us, it’s like living your life as a dog, and then finding out that so far as the rest of the world knows, you’re a cat.

Of course, it’s disorienting.

But always remember— there are people who really are Dual Federal Citizens, and there’s no point in being offended because you are not. Consider it a Big Mistake made a long time ago, and correct it.

Declare your choice to be recognized as an American, and join your State Assembly. Go to:

Where’s the Hope Newsletter #13: “Do not mistake SILENCE for inaction”, Super Bowl Half Time Show, Arrest of Pedo Politician

(Justin Deschamps) “Do not mistake SILENCE for inaction.” It seems like nothing’s happening, and yet, a great deal is happening if you know where and how to look. While Biden and his deep state allies in big tech and business push their globalist agenda, freedom-craving people the world over seem them for what they are. Like God, the truth works ceaselessly.

The post Where’s the Hope Newsletter #13: “Do not mistake SILENCE for inaction”, Super Bowl Half Time Show, Arrest of Pedo Politician appeared on Stillness in the Storm.
