  • Deconstructing 6 Major Marijuana Myths

    Author: Paul Fassa - NaturalNews.com
     

    (NaturalNews) Over the recent past few decades, the social stigma from the over-the-top absurdities of 1938's Reefer Madness have mostly evaporated. Millions have asserted they have at least tried marijuana without going insane and looking for stronger drugs to get "higher." Yet, today cannabis, a.k.a. marijuana, remains a DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) Schedule I drug, dangerous, addictive and without any medical merit.

    Let's examine and refute some of the propaganda that puts users in prison and holds this plant as a Schedule I drug.

    (1) No medical merit

    In 1974, the NIH (National Institutes of Health) funded the Virginia Medical College to do studies that would determine the damaging effects of marijuana, such as immune system damage. Instead, they found that marijuana reduced brain tumor growth in lab rats. The DEA stepped in and canceled the study and forced destruction of the study documents.

    Since then, there have been countless studies and testimonies proving cannabis efficacy at curing many diseases and maladies, including several cancers, effectively and without side effects.

  • The Clean Food Movement explained: huge victory for consumers vs. corporate collusion and secrecy

    Author: Mike Adams - NaturalNews.com

    (NaturalNews) While Natural News is one of the best-known voices of the Clean Food Movement, there are actually many millions of voices across the movement. But what is the Clean Food Movement exactly? In this article, I explain what it means and where it came from.
     
      The Clean Food Movement is decentralized, grassroots movement that calls for total transparency about:
     
      * What's in the food (including honest labeling)
      * How it was grown or raised
      * Where it came from (geographically)
      * Whether it's genetically engineered
      * What chemicals it contains (such as MSG and aspartame)
     
      These days, food consumers are more sophisticated than ever, and they want to know what they're eating. They want to know what farming methods were used to produce the food, too, and in the case of meat production, they even want to know how those meat animals were raised and treated.
     
      Advocates of the Clean Food Movement believe in honest labeling of GMOs in foods, and they believe in "food democracy" in the sense that consumers should have full access to accurate information about foods on the shelf so they can make informed decisions about what to buy or what to avoid.

  • Natural News launches Labs reference website with heavy metals results for foods, organics, supplements and more

    (NaturalNews) In conjunction with the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (ConsumerWellness.org), Natural News (NaturalNews.com) has begun publishing heavy metals lab reports for off-the-shelf food products. With industrial pollution worsening and many "organic" foods now imported from China, heavy metals and toxic elements are increasingly being found in foods purchased by consumers, including some certified organic foods.

    Through NaturalNews.com, heavy metals lab results are available free to the public and include parts per billion (ppb) concentrations of Aluminum, Arsenic, Cadmium, Mercury, Lead and Copper. Due to concerns about foods absorbing radioactive fallout from the Fukushima catastrophe, results for Cesium and Uranium are also included. Toxic elements are linked to diseases like cancer, Alzheimer's, schizophrenia, kidney failure, cognitive impairment, birth defects, hardening of the arteries and more.
