Avoid This Beverage to Reduce Risk of a Heart Attack

When feeling tired and low on energy, many people’s first reaction is to reach for a cup of coffee. Energy drinks are the other popular ‘solution’. One of the most famous energy drinks, Red Bull, created a name for itself as a beverage that ‘gives you wings’. Sponsoring many extreme sport events, Red Bull’s marketing motto states that they support daring people and innovative ideas. They don’t mention the potential health dangers of their signature drink.

Why This Popular Health Food Should be Avoided Like Plague

by BARBARA MINTON

Avoid SoyWhether you call it soybeans or edamame, the bottom line is the same: soy should not be eaten by anyone pursuing good health. By now, it’s well known in the natural health community that almost all soy is genetically modified, but what is not so well known is that instead of contributing to nutrition, soybeans and most of the products made from them may actually rob the body of nutrients, destroy thyroid function, and cause developmental problems in infants and children.

David Swanson
NationofChange / News Analysis

 
Clearly, an investigation of large-scale government corruption by this singularly destructive corporation is long overdue. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has been taken over by an outside organization.  RootsAction has launched a campaign demanding a Congressional investigation.

The organization is called Monsanto.

Does your Bottled Water Contain Nicotine?

First, they deliberately contaminate the municipal water supply. Then, they create and sell products that tend to provide solution, bottled water.

Interestingly, bottled water is more expensive than soda drinks, and it can be addictive, too. It doesn’t really quench your thirst.

Here’s why…

Fast Food: A Fast Break to Expensive Healthcare

I had the privilege of having access to the backend of the most trusted fastfood chain in my country, and I have witnessed several times that their practices do not conform to the image they project on their TV commercials.

This fastfood chain is the favorite of the families of those who have the privilege of working abroad as seafarers. caregivers and domestic helpers, and these believe that bringing their children to these outlets enhances their social status without knowing they are putting their families health in grave danger.

Those who prepare the meals are not necessarily concern about providing you the best service they can. To illustrate this point: early in the morning, these people don’t care where they put the trays why assembling everybody’s breakfast. They just stack them up, on top of the other, while our sunny side ups and steamed hot dogs are already in these trays. This is the very recipe by which we accumulate molds and parasites that would someday manifest as tumors and obesity.

You can’t expect anything better because these people are constantly overworked, e.g. working students trying to finish college, middle managers trying to climb the corporate ladder.

If our breakfast meals are prepared in such a slipshod manner, come back during peak hours…

The Red Cross Scam

The Red Cross is a disaster ‘racket’ in the business of making money from people’s misery, especially with totally engineered disasters such as 9/11.

So-called ‘charities’  are nothing more than a means of extracting even more money from the masses to swell the already overflowing coffers of the mega-rich.

Healthcare Insurance Cost Just Doubled

From a reader

ZH:

My wife and I own a small business and we had previously (in 2013)  been buying health insurance on our own for ourselves and our two kids.  The cost was about six hundred per month with a $5200 deductible, $6800 total out of pocket exposure for the family of four.

After spending months trying to register for the ACA in late 2013 and early 2014 my kids got put on our state’s insurance (at “no cost”) and my wife and I bagged an ACA policy at a subsidized cost of $281 per month with a total out of pocket of about $6500 (just for the two of us).

Attached is the ACA notification of next year’s price increase.  As you can see the cost goes from $281 to $555, a monthly increase of $274, a percentage increase of 97%. 

Basically we are now paying the same amount for the two of us that we paid for all four of us one year ago.

How can that increase occur in a “free market” economy?  Did I miss something? Has some input cost leaped exponentially in order to double the price I pay? Or has private industry colluded with government to rig the markets (again) in their favor?

How much longer will the American people allow corporations to rip them off in collusion with the government?  Fuck this bogus economy and government captured by corporations.  Where is the leader who will rise up from the masses and snuff out the corp/govt nexus before it imprisons us all in debt serfdom police state?

Do you think for one minute that freaking Mitch McConnell, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner or anyone newly elected or previously elected cares one shit about my wife and kids or what we pay for crappy health care that we cannot afford to access due to high deductibles?  Those fucks cannot see beyond the next donor phone call, and only come clucking out of the hen house in order to give voice to the latest party certified political meme, be it ‘freedom’, ‘liberty’, ‘security” or some other hollowed out focus group tested bullshit sound bite.
