Why Has the Flu Disappeared?

Posted by on Dec 23, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Why Has the Flu Disappeared?

With COVID-19 still dominating headlines, influenza (flu) has been conspicuous in its absence, especially during what is typically peak flu season. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) tracks influenza (flu) and pneumonia deaths weekly through the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) Mortality Reporting System. It also creates a preliminary estimate of the burden of seasonal flu, based on crude rates of lab-confirmed flu hospitalizations. Such estimates are intended to give an idea of how many people have been...

Will You Eat Cultured Meat Grown From Human Cells?

Posted by on Dec 23, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Will You Eat Cultured Meat Grown From Human Cells?

According to the World Economic Forum — the private, technocratic group leading the global economic “reset” agenda — lab-grown, cultured meat is a more sustainable alternative to conventional livestock. As noted on its website:1 “As the world looks to reset its economy, along with food systems, in a cleaner way post-pandemic, one more sustainable solution coming to fruition is cultured meat … Cultured meat takes much less time to grow, uses fewer of the planet’s resources, and no animals are slaughtered.” Fake Meat Is a Catastrophe for Your...

Where Did Eggnog Come From?

Posted by on Dec 23, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Where Did Eggnog Come From?

“Oh, the weather outside is frightful …” or at least that’s how it’s depicted in song in the weeks before Christmas when many envision sitting before a roaring fire with a cup of eggnog. In the U.S., the traditional drink is passed around from October through December, when sales of the store-bought variety fall precipitously after Christmas.1 In the last 50 years, sales in grocery stores have quadrupled. Although it’s impossible to measure the popularity of the homemade version, it’s estimated people in the U.S. drink more than 135 million...

Benefits of Cocoa Flavanols

Posted by on Dec 23, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Benefits of Cocoa Flavanols

Although they sound the same, and some people use the terms interchangeably, flavonoids and flavanols are different. Flavonoids are a family of plant compounds, of which flavanols are one subclass. You can find flavonoids in fruits, vegetables, tea, chocolate and wine. Evidence shows it’s flavanol-rich dark chocolate that improves cognitive performance and mood. The chemical properties of flavanols impact the bioavailability of the compounds and help determine their biological activity. As a family, flavonoids have antidiabetic,...

Study Feeding Pigs Human Food Canceled for Cruelty

Posted by on Dec 19, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Study Feeding Pigs Human Food Canceled for Cruelty

The process by which your cereals, salads and meats reach your table has dramatically altered the overall nutrition in most people’s diets. The addition of vegetable oil and the growing popularity of fast-food restaurants have also contributed. When this same diet was fed to pigs as discussed in this short video, researchers stopped the study because it was deemed cruel to the animals.1 Survey data published in 2016 showed the average person got 57.9% of their energy from ultraprocessed foods and 89.7% from added sugars.2 A rigorous...

Leucine Is Crucial to Prevent Muscle Depletion

Posted by on Dec 17, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Leucine Is Crucial to Prevent Muscle Depletion

Muscle mass decreases with age, a phenomenon known as sarcopenia. After the age of 30, most people experience muscle mass decreases of about 3% to 8% per decade, with the rate of decline increasing further after age 60.1 This isn’t set in stone, however, and you can influence muscle loss, slowing down its progress significantly, via lifestyle factors like diet and exercise. Luc van Loon, a professor of exercise physiology and nutrition at Maastricht University in The Netherlands, has been studying muscle loss for years, revealing the...

Posted by on Dec 17, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on COVID-19 Destroys the Weakest and Poorest

COVID-19 has been called the great equalizer, but nothing could be further from the truth. The disease clearly affects certain groups far worse than others, and the countermeasures implemented to quell the outbreak have been a phenomenal boon for wealthy globalists while decimating the livelihood, and perhaps even the will to live, of the average person. As reported by IPS News:1 “According to the latest ILO reports,2 as job losses escalate due to lockdowns, nearly half of the global workforce is at risk of losing livelihoods, access to food...

Another Way to Kill Small U.S. Farmers: Seize Their Bank Accounts on Phony Charges

Posted by on Dec 16, 2020 in Dr. Becker | Comments Off on Another Way to Kill Small U.S. Farmers: Seize Their Bank Accounts on Phony Charges

By Dr. Mercola In its latest move against small farmers who dare to operate outside the umbrella of CAFOs (confined animal feeding operations) and Monsanto-dominated crops, the U.S. government has seized $70,000 from a small dairy farmer in Maryland. The feds did this under the “Bank Secrecy Act,” which requires that paperwork be filled out for any cash deposit in excess of $10,000. The farmers, Randy Sowers and his wife Karen, made deposits totaling more than $295,000 from May 2011 to February 2012, but each transaction was less...

What Biotech Company Blamed for Bee Collapse Just Bought Leading Bee Research Firm?

Posted by on Dec 16, 2020 in Dr. Becker | Comments Off on What Biotech Company Blamed for Bee Collapse Just Bought Leading Bee Research Firm?

By Dr. Mercola Bee colonies around the globe are mysteriously disappearing, a phenomenon known as colony collapse disorder (CCD). Since 2006, it’s estimated that close to one-third of all honey bee colonies have simply vanished into thin air. Where are the bees going? What’s causing their devastating demise? One forerunning theory is that genetic engineering of crops is involved, either through the genetically modified crops themselves or the pesticides and herbicides that go with them. Monsanto, which is the world leader in this...

Several COVID-19 Vaccines Are Made Using Aborted Fetal Cells

Posted by on Dec 16, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Several COVID-19 Vaccines Are Made Using Aborted Fetal Cells

In addition to standard concerns over the safety of COVID-19 vaccines is the moral dilemma of taking vaccines made with aborted fetal cells. For many, this alone is a cause for objection. Several of the vaccine candidates, including AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine, are made using aborted fetal cell lines.1,2 Several fact checkers — including Politifact,3 The Associated Press4 and Snopes5 — have labeled the claim as “false,” but is it? As it turns out, fact checkers are relying on semantics to “debunk” this claim....

Remdesivir Is a Scam Like Tamiflu

Posted by on Dec 16, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Remdesivir Is a Scam Like Tamiflu

The most recent large-scale study from the World Health Organization shows remdesivir does not produce promised results. As I’ve covered in the past, there are numerous scientists who question the official story about the COVID-19 pandemic and the baseless fearmongering driving changes to worldwide behavior. Recently I shared a video interview in which British journalist Anna Brees spoke with Michael Yeadon, Ph.D., who is a past vice-president and chief scientific adviser of the drug company Pfizer and founder and CEO of the biotech...

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Reverses Signs of Aging

Posted by on Dec 14, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Reverses Signs of Aging

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment may be a practical method for slowing down the hands of time. At its foundation, aging represents a progressive loss of physiological capacity, researchers from Tel Aviv University and the Shamir Medical Center in Israel explained in the journal Aging.1 The biological deterioration leads to impaired functions and increased vulnerability to diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and others. Hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT), the Aging study suggests, may target two cellular...
