10 Questions to Ask Prior to Accepting Radiation (Video)

(N.Morgan) Radiation treatment is often utilized in the treatment of cancer.

Radiation uses high-powered X-rays with the intention to kill cancer cells.

But radiation is inherently damaging to DNA. Radiation therapy actually works by damaging the genes (DNA) in cells.

Genes control how cells grow and divide.

When radiation damages the genes of cancer cells, they can’t grow and divide any more. Over a period of time, the cells die.

This means radiation can be used to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors… or so the theory goes.

Radiologists are aware that DNA damage is one of the detrimental effects of ionizing radiation.

When something like that is added into your DNA (or most anything), it is definitely going to do some damage.

Damage Caused by Radiation Therapy 

Radiation therapy for cancer causes nerve damage (resulting in numbness and pain).

Radiation to the head and neck area can damage the glands, causing throat and mouth sores.

Radiation to the stomach or pelvis can damage the intestines.

Radiation also limits reconstructive options for breast cancer and can cause significant damage to the heart, lungs or any of the other organs nearby.

It also causes second cancers.

However radiologists believe that these side effects are insignificant as compared to the benefits of radiation as an effective cancer treatment.

They are incorrect, the theory itself is flawed.

Radiation Creates More Cancer

In the past researchers held the belief that radiation could actually kill cancer cells, however, researchers are now discovering that radiation treatment is actually responsible for creating more cancer.

UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center’s recent study found that radiation actually encourages breast cancer cells to produce more tumors.

Also it was uncovered that malignancy in radiation treated breast cells was likely to be 30 times more probable.

Radiation actually promotes malignancy in cancer cells instead of killing them, and it allows cancers to grow back with even greater severity.

The researchers noted that radiation treatment mutates cancer cells into treatment-resistant breast cancer stem cells (CSCs), even as it kills some of the cancerous cells within a tumor.

While radiation appears to target cancer cells and can regress tumors, this is only temporary, then the tumors regrow with a vengeance.

Further research has indicated that cancer stem cells are involved with treatment failure.

In fact, awareness of CSCs goes way back to around 1910, though the term wasn’t used then.

As with chemotherapy, numerous researchers have found that radiation does not kill all of the cancerous cells within the tumor.

The cancer stem cells are still there.

Also, radiation actually turns normal cells into cancer stem cells.

Thus creating cells that are resistant to treatment and which can go on to produce more tumors.

When is Radiation Treatment Beneficial?

Radiation therapy can be helpful in palliative care.

For example, it is often used as a method to control pain or manage other quality of life symptoms.

But the theory that radiation is curative has clearly been challenged.

Besides the obvious questions, such as does radiation therapy harm surrounding organs? (yes, it does), or will I suffer from fatigue? (likely so), and does it contribute to lymphedema? (it does), there are important questions you need to ask your radiation oncologist before you accept treatment.

10 Questions to Ask Your Oncologist Before Accepting Radiation Treatments

Before scheduling any radiation therapy appointments to treat cancer, here are some very important questions you need to ask your doctor.

These questions are meant to empower you to take control of your health and have a clear understanding of the cancer treatment being offered.

What is the goal of the radiation for my cancer? Is this a cure or a short term solution?

What will your proposed treatment do to my cancer stem cells?

How will you support my immune system during treatment?

How will you protect my heart, lungs, and/or other organs from the radiation?

How will this treatment change the cancer environment: will it only kill some of the cancer cells and leave me vulnerable when the cancer stem cells go on to create more cancer?

What is your opinion on taking antioxidants and other supplements during treatment?

How will radiation affect my risk of distant relapse, which has a much higher rate of recurrence (30%) than the 10-15 percent of patients with stage I or II who will develop a local recurrence? In light of the risk of the radiation creating more cancer, how will this radiation treatment benefit me?

What lifestyle changes will I need to make to improve the outcome of the radiation treatment and protect my body during treatments?

Will a planning CT (CAT scan) be required to determine the area to be treated? Will I require more than one of these scans which inherently subject me to even more radiation?

Would you give this same treatment to your wife or children, and if not, what would you recommend for them?

Would you do it yourself?

Many people are intimidated when it comes to questioning a doctor. Part of this is the unwillingness to put up with potential arrogance.

However, more often it is because when we hear the words “you have cancer” we often begin to operate out of fear. We can be bullied into thinking we will die if we don’t follow the good doctor’s orders.

It is nearly to impossible to make clear, educated decisions when allowing fear to control your thinking. it is your right to know that by law, physicians must inform patients of the significant risks and serious harm associated with proposed treatments as well as alternatives to their suggested treatment.

It is much easier to promote the healing process once you become an empowered patient. Find out what causes cancer, what caused your cancer, and what stops it from growing.

It can not be stressed enough to ask questions.

The old adage “No question is a dumb question” should become your mantra while determining the proper course of treatment.

Washington Defies DEA – Will Conduct Cannabis Research (Video)

(N.Morgan) At the beginning of this month, the DEA revealed its complete ignorance and enslavement to Big Pharma, by refusing to reclassify marijuana, which will stand at a Schedule 1 drug. This means, according to their classification system marijuana has “no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.”

The decision came as a shock to many who had expected the agency to recognize the 21st century body of scientific evidence on cannabis’ medicinal value, and the real-life stories of people cured with this plant.

It has been widely documented online and by the Free Thought Project  the various examples of children suffering from constant epileptic seizures, who, after receiving CBD treatment (an extract of cannabis), experience a dramatic reduction in seizures and gain a quality of life like never before.

The DEA’s continual denial of the infinite potential of medical cannabis is cruel and borderlines criminal.

In a review of the evidence, U.S. government’s own National Institutes of Health, researchers concluded:

Based on evidence currently available the Schedule I classification is not tenable; it is not accurate that cannabis has no medical value, or that Information on safety is lacking.

As Justin Gardner reported: The good news is, hardly anyone really cares what the DEA thinks. Civil disobedience is happening all over the country as individuals and even state governments recognize the injustice of cannabis prohibition. In a heartening example, one brave Georgia lawmaker admitted that he goes to Colorado to secure medical grade cannabis and brings it back to treat sick children in his own state.

Shortly after the DEA’s decision was released, Washington state – which legalized the recreational and medicinal use of cannabis – announced perhaps the boldest act of defiance yet.

The News Tribune reported:

Washington state is moving ahead with its plans to allow scientific research of marijuana, sidestepping federal rules that critics say have hampered study of the drug for decades.

The state has a new marijuana research license that will allow laboratories to grow marijuana for scientific study. State officials expect to start accepting applications for the new license by January.

The DEA claims they “don’t have enough research” to say cannabis has medicinal value, but their own impossibly strict regulations have smothered research for decades. So Washington has taken the lead and is directly addressing this disingenuous claim by paving the way for more research to be conducted.

Sam Méndez, the executive director of the Cannabis Law & Policy Project at the University of Washington School of Law, states: “It can take up to two years just to get the federal licenses in the first place, because the process is so long and onerous.”

And, when a researcher finally does get a federal license, the only place they can get research-grade cannabis is from the University of Mississippi. Further, when discoveries are made about the medicinal properties of cannabis, they cannot be applied to state-level systems.

Washington’s state licensing program will bypass these ridiculous road blocks, and will make pave the way for private research facilities to conduct research as well as state universities. Research-grade cannabis can be sourced from within the state from a variety of qualified producers.

“The state Liquor and Cannabis Board is now setting up a scientific review panel to scrutinize applications for the new marijuana research license, a first step toward opening the door to applicants”, said board spokesman Brian Smith.

The scientific review panel — made up of officials from Washington State University and the University of Washington — will evaluate the quality of proposed research projects, as well as whether applicants have the expertise and facilities to carry out the work.

After developing rules to govern the application process, the LCB expects to start soliciting applications at the start of 2017, with the first licenses to be issued sometime after that.

On the issue of cannabis, Washington gets full commendations for the rare act of “legislating” freedom by allowing recreational use of cannabis, and for breaking tyrannical barriers to a research on a plant with such medical promise.

It will soon join Israel as one of the world’s leading areas of medical cannabis research, and open the door for a thriving multi-million dollar industry which also serves the benefit of humanity.

12 Tornadoes Slam Indiana and Ohio (Videos and Photos)

 

(N.Morgan) A wave of severe storms spawned at least a dozen tornadoes in Indiana and Ohio. Homes and businesses were damaged, but there were no serious injuries reported by authorities on Thursday, as crews worked to restore power and remove fallen trees.

The National Weather Service reported an EF3 tornado hit the south side of Kokomo, Indiana, packing winds of up to 165 mph.

That tornado toppled a Starbucks coffee shop and damaged numerous homes and businesses in the city about 40 miles north of Indianapolis.

Howard County Sheriff Steve Rogers said the 10 to 15 Kokomo residents who were hurt suffered only minor injuries.

Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight divulged Thursday that about 220 people stayed overnight in a temporary shelter.

Police were restricting access to storm-damaged neighborhoods, saying residents must show identification to be able to enter.

A tornado is seen here in Komoko, Indiana, Aug. 24, 2016.

“The areas that have been hit the hardest, we’re asking people to stay away unless they absolutely have to be in those areas,” Goodnight said at a news conference, adding that he’s thankful and relieved no one was killed or seriously injured.

Tornadoes were also observed across the border in northwest Ohio.

Emergency Management Agency spokesman Jay Carey said damage was reported in Defiance, Henry, Paulding and Van Wert counties and that one person was reportedly hurt.

The worst damage appeared to be at a mobile home park in Defiance. The roads around the site were blocked late Wednesday.

Damage from storms and tornadoes are seen here in Komoko, Indiana, Aug. 24, 2016.

Is the Stage Being Set for a Major Terror Attack? (Videos)

(N.Morgan) In a discussion recently, someone pointed out some very interesting observations they’d made and the final piece to this puzzle brings together could very possibly be a False Flag op in the making.

In mid-July, there was that huge glitch at Southwest Airlines that delayed flights leaving thousands of travelers stranded for hours, the cause was blamed on a widespread computer outrage and almost all flights out of its Chicago hub were grounded because of a technical glitch.

Yesterday, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration briefly suspended flights at Miami Internationaland nearby airports around noon on Thursday following a power outage at Miami’s Terminal Radar Approach Control.

With this outage all communications were down as well, so no contact between the pilots and runway were possible.

The list of these sort of glitches goes on and on and it seems all of the airlines have expereinced these issues.

Why has mainstream media remained silent about these technical difficulties?

Check out this Google Search for many more examples.

A techinical issue that occurred at LAX in which a regional air traffic control computer system misinterpreted a U-2 spy plane’s flight plan last week, grounding hundreds of planes at airports across the southwest.

The FAA halted flights into Los Angeles airspace for about 90 minutes because of “technical issues” at its air traffic control center in Palmdale.

Officials stated that the malfunction occurred when a computer system incorrectly processed a flight plan for a nearby U-2 aircraft that was flying around 60,000 feet.

The software interpreted that plan’s route as below 10,000 feet, where it conflicted with hundreds of other flight plans.

The U-2 plane was in the area for a training exercise.

Apparently, the spy plane’s programs screw with the airlines software, causing major interference and throwing the system off.

Given these factors it would appear something weird is going on.

The source I spoke to said they hadn’t given much thought to these airline events until last night, as they were gazing up at the stars, they’d almost witnessed a mid air collision between 2 airplanes.

The last statement made by this person is the one that gives one pause.

“Seems to me that someone is testing the system to do something.”

Is it possible that The “Powers That Be” are setting us up for another 911 scenario?

If contact is lost and if the Control Tower was unable to locate the airplanes it would be a perfect time to hijack a plane.

Or could it be for a total chaos factor in the air, either for a distraction or to put more fear in peoples’ hearts?

The result of such an event would then give the government the ability to pass more Orwellian laws so they gain more control.

Hence tighten the chains on our freedoms even more, just as it happened with 9/11.

We were warned over a year ago when the Washington Examiner reported,” The next terrorist attacks are most likely to be against U.S. power grids, dams, air traffic control centers and other areas of vital infrastructure, said the co-author of a controversial cyber security bill in recent days.”

Are these glitches part of a larger conspiracy or are these normal events that just happen once in a while?

Former Big Pharma Rep: The Drugs Are Dangerous- We’re Trained to Lie (Video)

(N.Morgan) Whistle-blower and former pharmaceutical sales representative Gwen Olsen exposes Big Pharma’s lie, they know these drugs they are approve are dangerous and the pharmaceutical reps are trained to flat out lie and misinform the public.

Gwen Olsen spent fifteen years as a sales rep in the pharmaceutical industry working for health care giants including Johnson & Johnson, Syntex Labs, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Abbott Laboratories and Forest Laboratories.

In Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher, Gwen Olsen brings together the knowledge of an “insider” trained to sell doctors on the merits of pills; the personal experience of having taken psychiatric medications and seen how they altered her life; and the deep grief of having lost her niece—following her treatment with psychiatric medications—to suicide. This book has both an intellectual and emotional punch that readers will long remember.

In the video below, Ms.Olsen reveals the truth behind the pharmaceutical industry.

Dentists Hid That This Toothpaste Can Cause Cancer (Video)

(N.Morgan) A vast majority of consumers have heard about Fluoride in many toothpaste commercials, touting that Fluoride is paramount in dental care.

A recent study has revealed there is another dangerous chemical lurking in toothpaste and it is even more dangerous and damaging than Fluoride and has already been linked to Cancer.

Toothpaste Health Risks

The chemical discovered can be found in only one major toothpaste brand, and it goes by the name of triclosan.

Colgate is the only major toothpaste brand known to use triclosan and it is one of the most mainstream toothpastes used by Americans and is exposing many of them to the health risks of triclosan.

It is added to the toothpaste to supposedly reduce the risk of bacterial infection, however, studies have found that the health risks associated with it may cancel out any benefits that it can provide.

Various animal studies conducted on triclosan uncovered that it has a extreme affect on the hormone balance of mammals.

This means that it has an impact on male and female hormones such as testosterone and estrogen as well as our thyroid system.

Disrupting the balance of certain hormones, specifically estrogen, has been linked to various diseases, most notably breast cancer.

This is because breast cancer cells are generally receptive to estrogen, meaning that having an excess amount of estrogen can cause them to grow.

If triclosan exposure really does increase the amount of estrogen in our bodies, which many studies show that it is a reasonable possibility, then it is safe to conclude that exposure to triclosan can greatly increase our risk of breast cancer.

Apart from being linked to cancer, triclosan’s antimicrobial properties have also caused concerne among experts due to the possibility of “super-bugs”.

These are bacterial strains that have become resistant to triclosan’s antimicrobial properties and will eventually spread without any form of medication able to stop it.

Natural Toothpastes

There are a variety of options for natural toothpastes or homemade toothpastes, here are a few examples.

 

Organic Toothpaste- How to make DIY Easy [V IDEO]

Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide

Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide both have natural whitening and antimicrobial properties.

To use them, all you have to do is mix them together and apply them to your toothbrush the same way you would any normal toothpaste.

In order to properly make baking soda-hydrogen peroxide toothpaste, make sure to use less baking soda than hydrogen peroxide.

Mix about two tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide with one tablespoon of baking soda. Make sure that it isn’t gritty.

After brushing with the paste, let it sit on your teeth for about a minute to get the full whitening effects of both ingredients.

Coconut Oil and Peppermint Leaf

Coconut oil is another great, all-natural bacteria killer.

Although you can use coconut oil on its own, add peppermint leaf for that distinctive fresh, minty flavor.

Simply mash up some peppermint leaf (mixing in peppermint extract instead works as well) and brush your teeth with the mixture.

Unlike other antibacterials, coconut oil is not an immediate solution, instead, it breaks down bacteria and plaque over time.

This means that it may take prolonged use before you notice any noticeable effects.

Oil pulling

Oil pulling is an ancient technique has been used for centuries to keep the teeth and gums healthy.

It uses oil to cleanse infected areas and help the gums heal.

Take a tablespoon of sesame, coconut, or sunflower oil and swish it around your mouth for a couple minutes, focusing on the infected gum.

Spit out (do not swallow!) and rinse immediately with warm water.

Not Just Windows to the Soul: 14 Things the Eyes Reveal About Health (Video)

 

(N.Morgan) This may come as a surprise, but your eyes can reveal a lot about your health. There are conditions and diseases that present signs in the eyes. Here are 14 illnesses that can be seen in the eyes.

1. Disappearing Eyebrows

Thyroid dysfunction can be detected by thinning eyebrows. Up to 1/3 of the brow can fall out.

2. Styes That Won’t Go Away

An indication of a rare cancer called sebaceous gland carcinoma, is a stye that won’t go away or continues to appear in the same spot.

3. Burning Eyes, Blurry Vision While Using A Computer

‘Computer vision syndrome’ (CVS) is a condition that develops as a result of excessive eye strain due to lack of contrast on a computer screen combined with too much work.

4. A Small Blind Spot In Your Vision, With Shimmering Lights Or A Wavy Line

Disrupted vision is frequently the result of a migraine aura and may be followed by a headache.

5. Whites Of The Eye Have Yellowish Hue

Jaundice in this case is the culprit, which is typical of newborns with immature liver function, but also of those suffering from bile ducts, gallbladder, and liver issues.

6. Eyes That Bulge

Bulging eyes are typically a symptom of an overactive thyroid gland, a condition known as hyperthyroidism.

7. Sudden Double Vision, Dim Vision, Or Loss Of Vision

Dim vision, loss of vision and double vision have been identified as the warning signs of a stroke.

8. Blurred Vision and Diabetes 

Eye issues such as diabetic retinopathy – a condition in which the circulatory system of the eye is affected by the disease and is quite common in diabetics. This is the leading cause of blindness in American adults suffering from diabetes.

Research confirms that nearly 1 in 4 Americans are either pre-diabetic or diabetic.

 

Is Poor Vision Inevitable As You Age?

Not necessarily, there are lifestyle changes you can make to help preserve your eye sight and all around eye health.

Modern lifestyles often contribute to poor vision. Several studies that have concluded that people who are over 60, apart from glasses, may also need high-quality supplements in order to support their vision.

You may also need additional vision support if:

You smoke
You’reobese
You’re diabetic
You spend a lot of time staring at a computer

The video below discusses more symptoms the eyes reveal.
