It is extremely essential that one knows about the different components of chlorella!



According to Natural News, every brand of chlorella tested at the Natural News Forensic Food Lab captures at least 93% of dietary mercury in a gastric acid digestion simulator. Most brands of chlorella captured mercury at 98% - 99% efficiency.

Here are the results that Natural News has documented across several brands and manufacturers:

·        Clean Chlorella: 99%

·        Dr. Mercola Chlorella: 99%

·        NOW Foods Chlorella: 99%

·        Source Naturals Chlorella: 98%

·        Jarrow Formulas Chlorella: 98%

·        Sun Chlorella: 98%

·        Earth Circle Foods Chlorella: 98%

·        Swanson Chlorella: 93%

Chlorella manufacturers and importers:                                   

·        RFI chlorella: 97%

·        Taiwan Chlorella (TCMC): 98%

·        Febico Chlorella (Taiwan): 98%

Looking at these numbers, you may wonder why Swanson Chlorella is considerably lower at 93%. That's because Swanson adds calcium to their chlorella, reducing the chlorella concentration in the final product. Their tablets are not actually 100% chlorella. But overall, every brand of chlorella tested was very effective at binding with mercury in the human digestion simulator running at the lab.

Arsenic- and cadmium-capturing capacity is very low for chlorella. The laboratory tests showed that arsenic was only reduced by a maximum of 6% across the different brands of chlorella. Because the range of error in these measurements is closer to plus or minus 10%, these low numbers for arsenic are insignificant.

It seems that chlorella has little or no ability to bind with arsenic. Chlorella's binding and capturing potential may be slightly better against cadmium, a toxic heavy metal that contributes to kidney failure. My tests showed cadmium being captured at anywhere from 0% to nearly 9%. But again, as this is all within the range of error, we cannot conclude that chlorella has any validated potential to capture cadmium.

The real shocker in all this is that chlorella shows very high affinity for binding with and capturing dietary uranium.

 

The laboratory tests via ICP-MS show chlorella's uranium capturing capacity from a low of 88% to a high of 97%. Uranium, by the way, does not have the same sort of toxic profile as lead, cadmium or mercury. It's not normally a high priority element to avoid except in the context of nuclear fallout or for people living in regions which have been hit by depleted uranium weapons.

In a fallout scenario, radioactive uranium isotopes can make their way into food, water and air. From there, they can easily poison anyone living in the area. In that context, dietary protection from radioactive uranium isotopes can be extremely valuable, and chlorella may play a significant role in saving lives in such a scenario. But in day-to-day living, uranium isotopes are normally not a significant threat in the food supply.

Monsanto’s radio advertisement banned from transmission due to the efforts of Mariam Mayet and the African Centre for Biosafety!


 
 
According to Natural News, Mariam Mayet and the African Centre for Biosafety (ACB), for which she is the executive director, lodged a formal complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority of South Africa, reporting that Monsanto's radio ads are unsubstantiated.

The Monsanto ad on Radio 702 basically claimed that their institution knows what's best for the growing world population. They are the ones who can feed the 8 billion people by 2025, if only South Africans would accept their GMO seeds. Lying straight up, the ad claims that GM crops use fewer resources and have been "strictly regulated and have been extensively researched and tested for safety." The ad touts increasing crop yields, decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and less pesticide use -- all unproven.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) investigated the case and ultimately ruled against Monsanto's false advertisement claims, pulling their radio ad.

The ASA ruling reads, "Aside from submitting links to documents on its website, the respondent [Monsanto] has submitted nothing from an independent and credible expert to confirm that the various studies relied on and referred to on its website are applicable to the respondent's product, or that they support the advertising claims."

With no evidence to back up their claims, Monsanto has been ordered by the ASA to abstain from further fraud and has been warned to provide "proper substantiation for its advertising claims" or risk attracting further sanctions.

Chemical pesticides are used in abundance across America, and studies have shown that exposure to these chemicals, even at low levels from just being in the vicinity, can cause life-threatening conditions, chronic disease and developmental disorders in children and unborn infants.

As noted by Deirdre Imus, founder of environmental health site dienviro.org, in an article for Fox News:

The EPA acknowledges that pesticide exposure causes problems, "that may occur over a long period of time," which basically means that any health problem experienced now or in the future by you or your kids could be caused by pesticides, or not. You'll never know for sure, and neither will I.

Despite this, pesticide use continues, increasingly, nationwide, especially on genetically modified crops that have been manipulated to resist herbicidal chemicals like glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup, which contains a number of other chemicals that make the formula even more deadly.

The agricultural industry relies on pesticides and herbicides to protect their crops, and their profits, from infestations of pests and weeds, but there is nothing in place to protect consumers from those toxic chemicals. "For now, that responsibility falls to organic farmers, whose integrative practices, like using compost on crops, help avoid injections of carcinogenic chemicals into our food supply," Imus concludes.

Industrial food oil processing is very scary - take a look


In just 80 years, consumption of soybean oil increased a thousand-fold in the United States. When Monsanto figured this out, in came pesticide food for the masses. Using industrial chemicals and highly toxic solvents, most vegetable oils are processed until useless and sold as food. The omega-6 overload messes up the fatty acid composition of the body. Currently, most Americans' ratios of omega-6 to omega-3 is around 16 to 1. This ratio basically cripples your immune system, and Big Food and Big Pharma both know it. This is the number one reason why eating out at restaurants is bad news. The excess of these fatty acids sits in cell membranes and increases harmful oxidative reactions. Typical body fat stores of linoleic acid have increased three-fold in just a few decades

“Common Core” curriculum in U.S. bent on crafting idiots, Feds spear-head the “Neanderthals” with stupid problems to solve


 

 

How can a child ever learn to think on his/her feet when all you give them are multiple choice questions? Sometimes the answers to life are designed on the spot, they’re not all presented as A, B, C, D or all or none of the above.

 

How can a child develop his/her brain when all you give them to solve are fill-in-the-blank questions? Again, this does not require the child to figure anything out, only to recall rote memory skills and dates and names.

 

How can a child ever make split decisions, and not stress out about them, if they learn math that has nothing to do with the real world? Business math should be core curriculum, not confusing word problems that don’t even have any relevancy to the real world, and real application to modern day life.

 

Kids are brilliant and technical, but they are also organic beings that like challenges and creative “thinking.” You can’t keep kids in a box all day, serving them boxed food, and asking them “boxed” questions that have only 5 boxed answers.

 

What happened to creative writing? What happened to essay questions? Are they just TOO HARD to grade, to quantify? The teachers certainly are NOT dumb. They could challenge the kids, but their arms are tied. No kids are allowed to sit in a circle and intelligently discuss the interesting stories of history or science, without some principal entering the room and shutting that teacher and that lesson plan down. “There will be no thinking done here that is not gradable! No student will be “left behind!”

 

Kids should be sitting at round tables having round table discussions about what REALLY matters, like how to run a business, how to pay your own bills on line or with a check and how to balance a checkbook. Kids should be taught how to be smart with money, and not fall for scams and stock market liars. Hollywood teaches just the opposite. Hollywood teaches you that you can be stupid if you act well, and you can do cocaine and go to jail, and when you get out, go right back to being a lying business man or woman and “leave the past behind.” Disney teaches girls they need to be rescued by a man to be happy. The core curriculum is cannon fodder in schools. It’s nearly useless. Kids who just spit back senseless facts (and lies) will get nowhere in life, and that seems to be the way the American core curriculum was written to be. Cannons (textbooks) need fundamental changes made to them to challenge today’s youth, with intelligence, morals, respect and infinite thinking and creativity.

 

Mike Adams the Health Ranger explains the predicament in laymen’s terms:

 

If you look around America today, mathematical mental illness is found everywhere. It's found in the federal budget, where numbers only mean what we are told they mean, not what they really mean. Mental illness is also found in medicine, where mentally ill victims of mercury in vaccines viciously attack parents who seek to protect their children from those very same vaccines. It's also found in the new "Common Core" curriculum, spearheaded by the federal government, which seems intentionally designed to make children mentally ill and as confused as possible.

McDonald’s extended breakfast hours a ploy to cover REAL REASON for declining sales all over the globe


 
According to Natural News, McDonald's has announced that it had at last stopped adulterating their hamburger meat with ammonia in late 2011. Numerous activists, including celebrity chef Oliver Stone and Health Ranger Mike Adams had spoken out against the practice. By sanitizing discarded, disease-ridden meat with ammonium hydroxide (also used in glass cleaners, explosives and fertilizers), inedible meat can reenter the marketplace.

In Stone's own words, "Basically we're taking a product that would be sold in the cheapest form for dogs and making it 'fit' for humans."

Due to the widespread unsanitary conditions within the meat industry, preventing severe bacterial contamination of meats is nearly impossible, especially for any discarded scraps. Food poisoning during bacterial outbreaks is the most visible symptom of this problem, and in turn the sole focus.

According to Adams: "This is all fine with the USDA, which endorses the procedure as a way to make the hamburger beef 'safe' enough to eat. Ammonia kills [E. coli], you see, and the USDA doesn't seem to be concerned with the fact that people are eating ammonia in their hamburgers."

For more information, log onto:


Due to a decline in company sales and an attempt to remain "relevant," McDonald's CEO Don Thompson announced plans to provide speedier service, extend breakfast hours and prepare more "high quality," healthier food.

In order to keep up with the "trends," McDonald's has added several new items to their menu, including chicken wraps and breakfast sandwiches made with egg whites. Unsurprisingly, the changes have failed, most likely because people interested in eating healthier food just simply aren't going to look for it at a fast-food chain, especially McDonald's.

According to the Oak Brook, Illl.-based McDonald's, guest counts fell 2 percent globally and 1.6 percent in the U.S. last year. Earnings for the number one fast-food chain reached $1.4 billion for three months ending on Dec. 31, with earnings per share totaling $1.40, just one cent more than Wall Street expected.

"McDonald's edged up 44 cents to close at $95.32. Since peaking at an all-time high of $103.70 last April, the stock has zigzagged lower and is trending closer to its 52-week low of $92.25 hit last January," reported CBS Chicago.

The fact that the world's largest fast-food chain is considering extending their breakfast hours shows just how badly the company is hurting. Despite persistent consumer requests to extend breakfast past 10:30 a.m. in the past, the chain refused, blaming limited kitchen space and the "logistically impossible" task of offering both the breakfast and lunch menu simultaneously. The real reason sales are declining is that people are waking up to how nutrient void those meals really are.

Big Pharma spends $1 billion on advertising instead of clinical trials of dangerous meds!


Big Pharma would much rather spend its $1 billion on advertising than on clinical trials designed to protect consumers' health. The drug industry, also referred to as the patent medicine industry, devotes its time to developing man-made drugs in the lab, as opposed to utilizing naturally occurring molecules, because anything naturally occurring in the environment cannot be patented, and therefore not profited from.

This prevents Americans from learning about natural supplements, or other forms of alternative medicine that can be far more effective, inexpensive and overall safer than prescription drugs.

No pink slime burgers and extended breakfast (pig slop) hours at McDonald’s on the way! “May I take your order?”


 

Where do you go if you’re really hungry in the morning, and you’re in your car driving, and you just want something hot, cheap and fast? You go anywhere but fast food. And you go anywhere but convenient stores. You find healthy food or you don’t eat. You drink spring water or the organic smoothie you remembered to make yourself and bring in the car. 

 

Where do you go to get meat that doesn’t contain pink slime, or processed GMO soy? Please look this up. It doesn’t matter if breakfast hours are extended at the dumpster behind the grocery store - you’re not going, right?

 

It doesn’t matter if a gelatin factory decides not to use road kill anymore, you’re still not going to eat gelatin, are you? - It’s animal hooves and hides and cartilage.

 

Fast food chains in America are famous (or infamous) for selling little “dead” salads so they look like they care, with their pesticide sprayed, tasteless and nutrient dead lettuce, tomato, and other by product food bits. The dressing is pure GMO canola, so they get you there anyway.

 

Don’t be fooled America, by toxic companies that remove ONE or TWO of their 50 toxins and claim to be “healthy”, “a little more healthy” or “trying to do the right thing.” They’re really bad liars and you need the truth. Natural News is tracking the unfolding STORY of McDonald’s trying to convince their clients for life that they care about health and well being. Read this:

McDonalds can’t make enough FUNK burgers fast enough without keeping all those cows in CAFOs locked up, fat, sick and miserable. Plus, they don’t want to dampen their investment in “healthcare” you now HAVE to buy. Don't get caught "hook, line and sinker" by junk science, junk food, and food not even fit for pests.....

Robots will outsmart humans by 2029 – If predictions are to be believed.


 
According to Natural News, AI expert Ray Kurzweil predicted that robots would "outsmart humans" by 2029. It is probably going to be much sooner, given that humans are currently suffering a rapid cognitive decline due to widespread water fluoridation (which even Harvard experts say causes lowered IQs), heavy metals contamination of the food supply and of course the IQ-cannibalizing broadcasts of MSNBC and CNN.

"By 2029, computers will be able to do all the things that humans do. Only better," reports The Guardian in an interview with Kurzweil.

Kurzweil is a top executive at Google, the very same company which has been on a robotics buying spree, purchasing top military-level robotics companies for billions of dollars.

Recently, for example, Google purchased Boston Dynamics, the company whose creepy, Terminator-style robots already have "human stalking" algorithms which are politely described as "follow the leader" games.

Some people believe there is a very small fraternity of groups of elites that really pull all the strings and have all the power, and one such group is called the Bilderbergs, who met recently in the United States.

So powerful is the group, according to some people, that its members actually decide who will become the U.S. president. They point out that the last time the Bilderbergs met in the United States was 2008, the year that Barack Obama became president. And the group met back in the U.S. again in 2012.

It isn't as if the Bilderberg Group is trying to keep the organization a secret. It has its own Web site -- http://www.bilderbergmeetings.org/index.php -- and publicly divulges its leadership here – http://www.bilderbergmeetings.org/governance.html.

The group publicizes its conferences -- http://www.bilderbergmeetings.org/conferences-10s.html -- and even lists the topics of discussion at each conference, of which there are many. For example, at a Bilderberg conference June 9-12 in Switzerland, members discussed "Economic and National Security in a Digital Age," "The Middle East: What Does Democracy Mean?" and "The Appetite for Reform: Can Governments Deliver?" among other topics.

Recent conferences have included discussion about economic changes in China, how sustainable the euro can be, current areas of conflict, how the influence of cyber technology is growing, and so on.

A similar organization, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), does much the same thing -- bring powerful people from a number of industries and politics together to discuss issues, problems and, presumably, what some solutions might be to those problems.

The CFR has been described as America's foremost non-profit, non-partisan think tank that specializes in -- you guessed it -- foreign policy and international affairs.

Thermograms – A better and safer alternative to mammograms!



According to Natural News, various researchers and experts have highlighted several issues and limitations with using mammograms as the main method of breast cancer diagnosis. A viable alternative is thermography. Thermograms are safe, nontoxic, highly accurate and inexpensive.

What is thermography?

Thermography is carried out based on infrared heat emission by the body's tissues. As bodily cells go about their usual metabolic processes, they give out heat. Cancerous tumors tend to emit more infrared heat than their healthy counterparts, i.e. they are hotter.

Using information on varying heat emissions, thermography is able to produce images that provide insight into the functional status of a specific area of the human body, in this case the breasts.

Further, as compared to normal tissue, cancer growths are also regulated to a much lower extent by the autonomic nervous system. For example, when cool air is blown over the breasts, the autonomic nervous system lowers the amount of blood flow to normal breast tissue as a means of temperature regulation. The blood and blood vessels at the tumor site, however, are not under autonomic control and do not become cooler -- thermography would thus show the abnormal tissues as "hot spots".

Dr. Russell Blaylock, an oncologist, brain surgeon and neuroscientist, endorsed thermography. "Thermogram is also good because we know tumors are hot and benign lesions tend to be cool." He also criticized mammograms.

While thermography sounds rather new and unconventional, progressive physicians in Europe and the United States have actually already been using this technology since 1962. Once more women demand other screening protocols, the availability of techniques such as thermography should slowly increase.

It's 2014, and one can't sit around playing a guessing game with what they eat, drink and put on their skin. One needs to know what chemicals the FDA is allowing in the food, what the latest names for them are and how they can affect one’s immune system and vitality. Make informed decisions. There is a cumulative effect from consuming "just a little bit" of toxins every day. There are over 70,000 chemical agents allowed in our food supply which cause your cells to mutate, divide and multiply.

Stay calm and quiet, listen to YOURSELF think for once, instead of the Media



 
 

What’s your poison? Do you drink a lot of coffee? Do you smoke cigarettes? Do you drink alcohol often? Maybe you smoke pot. Tell me you didn’t used to party, like with the white stuff? Okay George W. Bush and Obama, tell us ‘bout them college days. Have you ever, or are you currently smoking crystal meth? What about smack? Do you shoot up or did you not see the movie “Trainspotting?” Where is this all going, you’re probably asking. It’s going in one ear and out the other. You aren’t listening, hearing, or even thinking clearly, if you’re on drugs, or “on” media, meaning TV and newspaper addiction. Where are you getting your news, and worse, for how long has that been your source? Please, don’t say the New York Times or the “Post.” Don’t say some acronym you claim is the fulcrum of all information, telling you what you’ve already decided is news. Check out the commercials and the ads, if you want to know what news you are buying into. It’s that simple.

 

Ask yourself right now: Are there ads for dangerous medications? Are there ads to treat all the manmade diseases? Is there never a cure for anything? There’s a cure for your bad news. Turn off the TV, burn the newspapers in your fire pit, and for God’s sake, put the drugs down and use your brain. Natural News enthusiasts know exactly what I’m talking about: Personal freedom. Individuality. Creativity. Life. Spirit and Energy. Natural Health. http://www.naturalnews.com/035429_intelligent_life_universe_planets.html

So, do you mainly believe what your best friends or significant other believes? Do you mainly believe in what you’ve heard for years? Did you choose what you believe or did someone else do that for you? Did you know most of the news on TV is edited and scripted based on fictional events, and some newscasters are the best actors, reading the script they also believe is a lie, they are just good at communicating the message to you, in that “familiar” way. They earn their living and they could care less about you or me. Get it? If you think abortion should be illegal, or automatic guns legal, do you think that because you saw some horrific story on TV that persuaded you, or some activists getting maced and beaten by cops on the front page of the paper? What was the official story there? What about guys who serve only two years in prison for raping a woman but the guy in the next cell is serving 10 to 15 years for possessing a bag of pot?


Mike Adams brings you the hard line truths about illegal and “legal” drugs. Consider this:


Question everything, starting with your own mind. It's important to understand that most beliefs are shaped by social pressure, not by a personal examination of philosophy and ethics. Most of your own beliefs, in other words, were handed to you by someone else, and you chose to believe them because it was consistent with the social influences you experienced at the time.

Here’s more from the Health Ranger:

“What if I told you there is an incredibly simple way to tell not only who's good and who's bad, but also how to tell who is pushing absolute evil onto our world? This method is remarkably accurate, and you can use it right now to assess almost anyone. It all starts with understanding the spectrum of control vs. empowerment.”

Pork-barrel politics in Washington DC helps factory food with the new monster Farm Bill.



 


Yes, the “Big Ag” monster is on the loose again, wreaking havoc on the food supply. The ZERO nutrition Bill almost ensures Americans eat food that contains ZERO nutrition, including factory made synthetic food and what most SNAP recipients buy at major grocery stores (conventional dead food).

 

S.N.A.P. - The “Stay Needy Always Program”

 

SNAP really stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, but you wouldn’t know it. The only way it works out that SNAP buys food which contains nutrition is if those SAME people are researching organic food, non-fluoridated water, and organic supplements, and have the will power to walk into the right stores and buy food that prevents disease rather than causes it. Now, thanks to both sides of Congress GMO crops will be subsidized, which in turn will spike cancer statistics over the next 3 years. I guess the Republicans didn’t lose the “Big Pharma” and “Big Ag” election that everyone thought they did a couple Novembers ago. Yep, from Monsanto to plate, the Government of America now gives you free food money and fake food for your plate, and the rest the country that doesn’t have free cancer food can buy their cancer food subsidized, to the tune of ONE TRILLION DOLLARS. It’s cash crop insurance for genetically mutated food and a codependent, uneducated country that needs a nanny and handouts. The Tsunami is on the way, and these people are most vulnerable when the bottom falls out of the economy for real. People thought 2007/2008 housing market crash was bad, that was just one facet of what this is leading to. The new FARM BILL should have been called the Laboratory Bill, because that’s where the damage is really getting done from.

 

Check out the new budget for the BAD BOYS of Washington DC and Monsanto now on Natural News:

 

“CBS Evening News recently ran a short segment on the legislation, which one government watchdog correspondent recently referred to as "the ultimate in pork-barrel politics," highlighting how its nearly $1 trillion in funding will be allocated. Most of it will go toward the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), more commonly known as food stamps, while the rest will cover expensive and unjustly distributed subsidies for cash crops and crop insurance.”

"The farm bill is a disaster for taxpayers," stated Tom Schatz from Citizens Against Government Waste”

Lose your tummy fat with healthy Coconut Oil! - Natural News Blogs are sharing the SECRETS!



According to Natural News, coconut oil, which is produced from the flesh of coconuts, has been shown to possess amazing antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties, improve blood cholesterol levels, boost energy and much more. However, a peer-reviewed Brazilian study has also found that consuming just 30 millimeters (1 ounce) of coconut oil a day can help treat abdominal obesity - providing yet more evidence that healthy saturated fats are essential for long-term weight loss.

For the study, which was published in the medical journal Lipids, the researchers assembled 40 female volunteers between the ages of 20 and 40 who suffered from abdominal obesity. Over a 12-week period, the women were given 30 millimeters of either soybean oil or coconut oil on a daily basis. During this time, the volunteers were instructed to follow their regular diet and walk for 50 minutes per day. At the end of the 12-week period, the researchers found that the women who were given the coconut oil experienced a significant reduction in both BMI and waist circumference, as well as an increase in "good" HDL cholesterol. These results were not found in the group that was given soybean oil.

"It appears that dietetic supplementation with coconut oil does not cause dyslipidemia and seems to promote a reduction in abdominal obesity," the researchers concluded.
