The War Against Your Health
Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.
– Charles Darwin, English naturalist and geologist (1809 – 1882)
I hate conspiracy theories. The odd one has sufficient evidence that needs to be addressed (what and who really caused 9/11?) but most are created by people who know far too little and have too great a desire to stand in the public spotlight. And who can make money or gain recognition by spreading their theories widely. Money’s the big reason behind most.
The war against your health is not a conspiracy theory. Nor is it unwinnable as is the case with the War on Terror or the War on Drugs, where the warriors stand to gain by continuing the war rather than solving and ending it.
Be assured that the war against your health is generating obscene fortunes for those responsible for it, just as is the case for the wars on drugs and terror.
The war against your health is based on your ignorance of the basic truths about the health of your body, your gullibility in believing lies about what is good for you, or your reluctance to change your habits to healthy ones even if you know the truths.
Let’s begin with the basic assumption that your immune system is the foundation on which your health is based. Your well-being depends on your not being ill or getting a debilitating disease. For that you need a healthy immune system.
But what is your immune system? Has anyone ever explained to you what it is or where it’s located in your body? For most the answer would be NO. Why? Because your ignorance about your own immune system makes you vulnerable to forces that stand to make huge profits by feeding you stuff that will harm your health and impair your well-being.
First–here is what may be the most shocking part for you–your immune system is only comprised about two percent of your own body’s cells. The rest of your immune system is made up of bacteria. These are good bacteria that work with your body to make your body healthy as they survive and thrive themselves in and on you.
These good bacteria are everywhere. On your skin, around your organs, in your mouth, in your bloodstream. The biggest majority of them are in your gut, your intestines, the small intestine and the colon. They live in symbiosis with you. You are, as the Star Trek series used to call them, a symbiont.
The bacteria in your immune system can’t live without you and you can’t possibly survive for long without them. Yet all kinds of products on the market want to kill them. Even your own family doctor may prescribe medicines that will kill your immune system.
Cancer, the most common disease in the western world, is treated–sometimes by law only using these treatments–by chemo drugs and radiation. Chemo drugs are all poisons. No doctor will deny this. They won’t tell you that unless you ask. Radiation is another form of poison. Aren’t you told to fear radiation from broken nuclear generating stations such as Fukushima and Chernobyl? Same stuff as doctors use on many cancer patients. Chemo and radiation make money for the medical community and for the industries that support it.
There are proven cures for cancer. Most are illegal. Ask yourself why. Marijuana is but one example. The United States government has a patent on the only cure for cancer accepted by that government. The patent is for marijuana. And it’s illegal in most of the United States. Other cures receive zero publicity from major media that survive on advertising from the companies that make the stuff that could kill you. Yes, it’s that bad.
Antibiotics are prescribed for people who get sick. Antibiotics kill bacteria and your immune system is their major victim. Mouthwashes claim to kill all the microbes in your mouth. Your immune system again. Your first line of defence against pathogens you put into your mouth. It’s that bad.
Many people in North America consider a daily shower (or two) to be normal. They wash off the good bacteria of their immune system that live on their skin.
Many of the foods you eat contain preservatives. Preservatives are designed to kill bacteria that can make food spoil. They also kill the bacteria that comprise the major part of your immune system once they reach your gut. Check ingredient lists on packaged and canned foods. Those words you can’t pronounce are preservatives, the enemies of your immune system. Preservatives are immune system killers.
Fresh produce, that’s good, right? Actually, most of it has been sprayed with poisons before it reaches your market. Apples, for example, are sprayed with poisons (pesticides and herbicides) from the time the apple blossom first comes out until just before it gets trucked to your market. Every two weeks they get sprayed. Apples. They won’t keep the doctor away if they are infused with poisons right from the seeds on out.
Potatoes are almost as bad. Other fruits and vegetables are not sprayed quite so often. All herbicides and pesticides–anything that ends in “…ide”–are poisons. Poisons kill the good bacteria that are your immune system.
Glyphosate, the major component in Roundup by Monsanto, and its kin by other chemical manufacturers, kills every living thing in the soil it touches. The microbes in soil that make it healthy–the very reason people have grown food in dirt for thousands of years–are killed by these chemicals. Chemical companies sell industrial farms more chemicals, such as fertilizers, to grow the crops you buy as food. That kind of food could be grown in crushed rock or sand.
Fluoride is put into municipal water in many communities. While there is no truth to the rumour that Hitler put fluoride in drinking water he gave to his Jewish prisoners to keep them from rioting, it is still true that fluoride is a poison and it does affect the brain. It is claimed that fluoridation of water prevents major tooth decay in children. So poison them rather than teaching kids how to brush their teeth properly twice a day. In business, anything can be justified if the objective is profit.
Municipal water treatment systems already put chlorine in water to kill off microbes in the raw water they take in. How much poison is acceptable in drinking water?
Does water really need poison? Your mouth’s saliva is already an acid that contains microbe killers secretory IgA and lysozyme.
Where do kids learn how to brush their teeth? Or adults for that matter. Mostly from TV commercials. Every TV commercial I have seen for decades teaches the wrong way to brush teeth. They teach people to brush the parts of their teeth that do not need to be brushed because food doesn’t stick there, such as on the bare open area of teeth. That just makes those teeth extra sensitive as the enamel is worn off. So the manufacturers get to sell you toothpaste for sensitive teeth. And dentists do more work on the teeth you damaged yourself by brushing wrong.
As a general piece of advice, you should be cautious about putting anything in your mouth or on your body that is advertised on TV. Dig deep enough and you will find scientific evidence to show that every one of those products are bad for your health.
There is more, too much more to report here. But you get the idea.
Why is this all allowed? Too many people are employed (and pay taxes) for governments to risk putting controls on these products. So it’s up to you how much risk you are prepared to take with your health. Will you be a victim of the war on your health or will you step aside from it and treat your body with the care it needs.
A major study just came out that shows that the life span of Americans is now lower than it was in the recent past. This is the first time ever that life span has been reduced in America. Now you know why.
If you want to pursue this subject you may want to research the evidence around the deaths of over five dozen naturopath and holistic doctors and nutrition specialists in the USA over the past year and a bit. Most–all healthy and none beyond middle age–were ruled as suicides by the police, thus excusing themselves from further investigation and problems with big pharmaceutical companies that wanted these natural cure people “disappeared.”
No matter what you think of any of the above, of this you may be certain. You are the only person who cares deeply about your health and has the ability to do something about it. Neglecting your health or planning to “eat healthy” in your future plays right into the hands of the medical community and the drug makers.
Act now. Your future depends on it.
