Studies on brain tumors in the past 10 or more years have shown an increase in the incidence of brain tumors in the general population. Can you guess why this is so? Extensive research during last two decades has revealed the mechanism by which continued oxidative stress leads to chronic inflammation, which in turn mediates most chronic diseases including cancer.
A Japanese study of broccoli sprouts and liver function has found the sulforaphane-rich food to be highly beneficial. An extract from broccoli sprouts given to male participants was shown to improve hepatic abnormalities and overall liver function significantly.
For the study, the researchers conducted a double blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial of males with fatty liver disease. The subjects received either extract of broccoli sprouts in capsule form, or a placebo. The capsules contained glucoraphanin, a precursor for the sulforaphane in broccoli sprouts.

(OMNS Oct 11, 2017) Whether or not to vaccinate their children is a big question for parents to ponder. Instead of encompassing a one-size-fits-all attitude, there needs to be the realization of individuality on both sides of the needle---the vaccine itself and the target patient. Some vaccines are ineffective, and may in fact be harmful. [1-4] In my experience as a pediatrician, no drug or vaccine can be effective 100% of the time for 100% of children.

“The defense of one’s self, justly called the primary law of nature, is not, nor can it be abrogated by any regulation of municipal law. This principle of defense is not confined merely to the person; it extends to the liberty and the property of a man … it extends to the person of every one, who is in danger; perhaps, to the liberty of every one, whose liberty is unjustly and forcibly attacked.” —James Wilson (1791)
The world of medicine is changing and with it, the way we are going to be diagnosing people’s conditions. The first step toward helping ourselves and our children recover from disease and reaching our highest states of health is getting a clear diagnosis you can trust when we get sick.
You’re certainly well aware by now that being overweight or obese can put you at risk for developing many diseases including diabetes, heart problems, and cancer. But what you might not think about is how it can impact your life in other ways, from shortness of breath just trying to climb a flight of stairs to experiencing joint pain on a regular basis. And now there is research that suggests another negative outcome for heavier men, which is lower sperm quality that could affect fertility significantly.

Reversing Creeping “Cultural Marxism.”
We “Populists” Have a Lot of Things To Fix In America… We Have Only Just Begun…
By Sharon Anshaw
In the wake of the worst mass shooting in US history, I have heard quite a lot of statements like “how could someone do this?” “How could someone even think of something like that.” “How can something like that happen?’
A Facebook group is calling for people to not watch or listen to NFL games on Veterans Day in a counterprotest to the players’ national anthem demonstrations.
How many are supporting this group?
The “Boycott the NFL” Facebook page has been “liked” by nearly 120,000, and is being followed by more than 122,000 people. The open community group simply explains, “Until millionaire football players stop protesting the National Anthem of the United States, we’ll be here.”
“We love football, but we love our flag more,” it concludes.

I decided that after I visit Australia (?) in December, I should go to China.
By Kent Heckenlively, JD
My recent banning from Australia was covered by the usual media suspects, the Australian-owned Murdoch papers, The Guardian in England, BuzzFeed in the United States, but I was surprised to find China carrying the news of my banning, specifically the South China Morning Post and Xinhua news.
“If God hadn’t meant for us to eat sugar, he wouldn’t have invented dentists,” said Ralph Nader. Certainly, love of sweets seems to be embedded in the DNA of most humans, which is why bakeries in the US gross about $39 billion annually.1 Add to that the multi-billion dollar revenue from 80,000 ice-cream joints.2 Even dogs love ice cream. But sugar and delicious fried foods and carbohydrate meals all add up to health problems when consumed in excess, which is exactly what a good percentage of the US population has been doing—eating unhealthy foods in excess.
