There are many reasons more people are buying seeds and planting their own gardens. One of the main reasons is that you have control over growing your food organically and you can enjoy some of the freshest produce available.

Posted by on Apr 16, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Pandemic Bill Mandate Accelerated 5G Rollout

In March 2020, with the U.S. reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Secure 5G and Beyond Act (S. 893) and the Broadband Deployment Accuracy and Technological Availability Act (S. 1822) were signed into law.

The 5G act requires the president to develop a...

Posted by on Apr 15, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on How One Food Causes Sweeping Damage and Cell Death

The history of trans fats dates to 1903 when Wilhelm Normann applied for and was awarded a patent after he discovered how to make liquid oil thicker and firmer through hydrogenation.1 These fats had a longer shelf life and were cheaper to produce. In 1911 Procter & Gamble introduced Crisco, a vegetable shortening advertised as “an economical alternative to animal fats and butter.” During World War II, when the government rationed butter, that led to a gain in popularity for margarine, a trans fatty acid product.

British American Tobacco (BAT) has joined the race to develop a vaccine for COVID-19, with plans to potentially manufacture 1 million to 3 million doses of vaccine per week.

Posted by on Apr 14, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Coronavirus — What Are the Best Alternatives for Self-Care?

In the meantime, doctors and other practitioners are, to a large extent, improvising. They are employing best-care practices for the very sick in hospital and providing best-guess advice for those with mild symptoms who are self-isolating, and for those who have no symptoms and would like to keep it that way.

In Italy, however — the “new” epicenter for COVID-19 — the number of deaths reportedly overtook those in China by mid- to...
