Deformed Fish being found in area contaminated by nuclear waste

Deformed Fish being found in area contaminated by nuclear waste

Health, Latest News
Murmansk, Russia  is home to 20,000 fuel rods, 12,000 cubic meters (about 333,360 cubic feet) of nuclear waste and 11,000 containers that the Russian navy has simply dumped into the Barents Sea and the Kara Sea, both in the Arctic Ocean. The Barents Sea sea is where a majority of commercial fish and crabs are fished for the world, especially for Northern Europe. During the Cold War, up to 150 nuclear submarines were stationed in the Murmansk region at any given time. Each sub had two reactors, and contained between 248 and 252 nuclear fuel rods. Most of these giants, some as long as 170 meters (558 feet), have been decommissioned in the past 15 years. But at least 40 still contain their reactors, complete with radioactive fuel rods. Like rusted whales, these floating potential environmenta

No recall for glass found in vaccines made in Monroe County – The Morning Call

Health, Latest News
Sanofi Pasteur, one the world's leading vaccine makers, had a potentially serious and costly problem on its hands: Its Monroe County plant discovered tiny pieces of glass in batches of a vaccine intended for babies. The glass was first detected in April 2013 in samples of a vaccine that had already been distributed to customers and which would not expire until September 2014. Sanofi sent the samples to an outside laboratory for analysis. The lab found evidence of delamination — which occurs when vaccine vials shed flakes of glass called lamellae. The health risks posed to any individual by vaccine vial delamination are widely believed to be minuscule. None has been documented. Nonetheless, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has warned that lamellae could cause serious health

Life Expectancy in U.S. Drops For First Time in Decades

Health, Latest News
For the first time in decades, life expectancy in the U.S. has dropped. While scientists aren’t exactly sure why- and many factors could be at play- this is still worrisome news. Released just yesterday from the federal government, the overall U.S. death rate has increased for the first time in a decade which led to a drop in overall life expectancy for the first time since 1993, particularly among people younger than 65. There is a chance that the latest data, from 2015, could be a one-time blip so government analysts are waiting on more data before reaching any definitive conclusions, “On average, the overall life expectancy, for someone born in 2015, fell from 78.9 years to 78.8 years. The life expectancy for the average American man fell two-tenths of a year — from 76.5 to 76.3. For

PCB pollution is in “every waterway in the state,” Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson said as he announced a lawsuit against Monsanto. It is the first time the agricultural biotech giant has ever been sued by a state. Polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, have been at the heart of multiple lawsuits brought against the multinational agrochemical corporation Monsanto by Seattle and Spokane, Washington, as well as cities in California and Oregon. However, this Thursday marked the first time a state government has sued the company over the potentially carcinogenic chemicals. The lawsuit, which seeks monetary restitution for damages and cleanup caused by the use of PCBs, was filed in King County Superior Court. Washington Governor Jay Inslee (D) and the state’s Attorney General Bo

Fukushima nuclear plant RADIOACTIVE FISH found on west coast of US

Health, Latest News, Mainstream Headline News
Highly toxic Cesium-134 – the "fingerprint" of Fukushima – was found in Tillamook Bay and Gold Beach, Oregon. The terrifying discovery was reported by researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The 2011 Fukushima nuclear meltdown was sparked by a massive tsunami off the coast of Japan caused by a 9.0-magnitude earthquake. Since then, the entire area has been a dangerous no-go zone. As giant waves crashed into the plant, huge quantities of contaminated water were leaked. Cesium-124 has also been detected in Canadian salmon for the first time, reported chemical oceanographer Jay Cullen, who is leading the Fukushima InFORM team at the University off Victoria. But researchers were quick to point out that the risk to human health is low because of the relatively small quant

‘Meat Glue’ & Other Ingredients in California Roll Sushi, Gummy Bears & Salad Dressings Are Now Implicated in Leaky Gut & Mysterious Autoimmune Diseases

If you are dedicated and serious about healing leaky gut and autoimmune disease, I need you to know about a recent study that IDs seven food additives that trigger leaky gut, or at the very least contribute to the condition. So what, exactly, is leaky gut? Known in the medical literature for more than a 100 years as “intestinal permeability,” in my opinion, many modern doctors don’t know how to ID and treat leaky gut. That’s a shame because it’s believed to be at the root of  which is at the root of many diseases. Signs and symptoms you have leaky gut include inflammation, joint pain, inflammatory skin disorders and rashes, food allergies and sensitivities and all sorts of other health problems. According to a study published in a Norwegian medical journal this process “is implicated in th
