The Brain-Shrinking Effects of a Junk Food Diet*

The Brain-Shrinking Effects of a Junk Food Diet*

By Amanda Froelich

Indulging in sugary drinks, fatty takeaway and processed meat might seem like a good idea at the time, but a new study has found that these habits will shrink a part of the brain responsible for memory, learning, and mental health.

 

Nearly everyone is guilty of indulging in junk food now and again, but research has found that those who frequently snack sugary drinks, high-sodium snacks, and processed meat are likely to shrink a portion of their brains in the long-term.

The study, published in BMC Medicine, compared MRI scans of approximately 250 people who were in their early 60’s during the year of 2001. Two dietary questionnaires informed the researchers whether or not participants in the group ate a “Western” diet (high in processed foods, fats, salt, and sugar) or a “prudent” diet (largely composed of fruits, vegetables, and fish), reports Vice.

Researchers from Deakin University and the Australian National University discovered that those who subscribed to the healthier “prudent” diet had larger hippocampi – the portion of the brain responsible for memory, learning and mental health – than those who indulge in Western diets.

In essence, a low-quality diet consisting of sugar, refined foods may be to blame for those ‘senile moments’ more and more people are experiencing, despite perhaps being young in age.

Other factors that might affect hippocampal volume were also taken into account by the authors of the study, such as medications, gender, and mental health issues. It was still concluded that a poor diet is a strong indicator of a shrunken hippocampus. Associate professor Felice Jacka, the lead researcher, commented in a press release:

“We’ve known for some time that components of diet, both healthy and unhealthy, have a rapid impact on aspects of the brain that affect hippocampal size and function, but up until now these studies have only been done in rats and mice. This is the first study to show that this also appears to be the case for humans.”

Food which is high in sugar has been found to be just as addictive as cocaine to some individuals. By slowly implementing healthier dietary choices, one can find long-term success in sticking to a regime which is good for their mind and body, as well as the planet. Click here for more information.

Flint to get New Pipes after $87mn Settlement*

Flint to get New Pipes after $87mn Settlement*

A deal between the state of Michigan, the city of Flint, several Flint-based pastors, and the American Civil Liberties Union, has resulted in the state paying $87 million to replace lead-tainted pipelines with galvanized steel pipes.

The state of Michigan will provide Flint up to $87 million to upgrade water pipes and set up water bottle distribution centres so that residents can have clean drinking water under the terms of the settlement proposed on Monday.

The deal requires that $47 million of the $87 million not come from the same sources approved last year by Congress and President Barack Obama for $40 million, Booth Michigan reported.

The settlement will not become legally binding until Tuesday when it will be reviewed by U.S. District Judge David Lawson. It includes much of what a coalition of civil rights activists, religious leaders, and the National Resources Defense Council initially sought and would force Flint and Michigan to commit to long-term plans for rectifying the lead crisis.

It also includes, however, a few concessions from the coalition. Instead of having water delivered door-to-door to homes not be verified to have water filters while roughly 18,000 pipelines were replaced, the state will be required to operate nine water distribution centres where Flint residents may pick up bottled water.

Michigan will be allowed to close up to three of them after May 1, if 20 or fewer people pick up from them, the Detroit News reported.

The state will also be required to reserve another $10 million of federal funds in case repairs are more expensive than expected. In addition, the state will be responsible for appointing a third party to monitor the lead levels of 100 homes for at least three years. Michigan will also expand Community Outreach and Resident Education programs in order to provide education, installation, and expansion of water filters.

Those involved in the litigation cannot comment on the matter until after the deal is formally accepted.

Terminally Ill Father Finds Cure in Cannabis Oil but Now on Death Bed After Complying with CPS to Get Children Back*

Terminally Ill Father Finds Cure in Cannabis Oil but Now on Death Bed After Complying with CPS to Get Children Back*

For nearly three years, Michael Brooks of Northwestern Tennessee has been fighting for his children and for his life. Faced with terminal Hepatitis C, he finally found a treatment that saved his life and brought him into remission.

However, Child Protective Services of Tennessee is using the very thing that brought him from the brink of death – cannabis oil – as grounds to take his children and place them into foster care.  He has been forced to choose between staying in Tennessee and accelerate towards his death or leaving to continue treatment in Colorado and risk being accused of abandoning his children.

In the summer of 2015, Michael, Jamie, and their young son Damon were recovering from lead poisoning that they had acquired from living in an old house.  Jamie was still pregnant with their second son, Elijah.

The couple was horrified to learn that Damon’s blood had high levels of lead, and the poisoning had affected more than 30% of his cognitive abilities.  Damon’s parents had noticed subtle behavioral changes like less eye contact, less social interaction, loss of affection, and the baby banging his head on the wall. They suspected that the baby had autism, but they never expected lead poisoning to be the culprit.

Damon started receiving some therapy, but Michael felt that it wasn’t enough and that he needed more help.  He decided to contact the Department of Children’s Services (DCS) to voice his concerns about his son not receiving sufficient help. He told Health Impact News that he had been under the impression that, when you need help with your family, you call DCS and they will help. In the beginning, it appeared that he might have been correct. DCS sent a therapist to their home.

However, once they were in the home, social workers from Child Protective Services (CPS) got involved and ultimately took Damon.  Michael said that DCS “reverse-engineered” the couple’s past domestic conflicts, which stemmed from the stress of dealing with terminal illness, and they took the baby.  Then, mandatory drug screenings ensued, showing Michael testing positive for THC, a psychoactive chemical in cannabis that alters brain function.  Michael said that CPS began to “run through my life with a fine-tooth comb.”

Traditional Medicine Had No Cure as Michael was Dying

Michael has advanced Hepatitis C that he acquired from a shared tattoo kit that he and his friends used to tattoo crosses on their arms in high school.  He is the only survivor of that group.  He had lived half of his life without knowing that he had the disease.  According to Michael:

They call it the silent killer, and for years it went undetected.  When it affects your internal organs is when you know you have it.

Michael had overlooked signs until he was in excruciating pain.  By the time he sought treatment, he was in the advanced stages.  He said:

I was prescribed life-destroying, addictive substances, over 20 different medicines, like oxycodone, morphine, and benzodiazepines.

He said that the medications were not only “harmful to the body and alters your personality,” but also “cost taxpayers a million dollars” in the past decade.  Additionally, he said that they offered little relief with regard to the pain, and they significantly decreased his quality of life.  He did not like the way the pain medications kept him from being present, in the moment, for his children.

As the disease progressed, Michael arrived at the point where traditional medicine could no longer help him.  His pancreas was so badly damaged that he had to go on diabetes medication, and he was developing cirrhosis of the liver.  He developed acquired haemophilia, and his blood platelet count was so low, that he was no longer eligible for traditional Hepatitis C treatment.  Michael is 6’2”, and at his lowest point weighed 123 lbs.  He was bleeding out of his eye sockets and pores of his skin. He said:

I crawled in my deathbed.  It was hell.  It scared me so much.  I just knew I was going to die.  I prayed for death.  It was the most intense suffering.  I didn’t think a human being could endure what I did.  Now, I know what to be afraid of.

Medical Cannabis Proves to be “Miracle” Cure

When he had his health, Michael was well-known for his talent for restoring antiques and building custom furniture.  He made a name for himself doing custom work for the stars, people like Hank Williams Jr. and Kid Rock.  Michael is bright and has an impeccable eye for detail.

So, when faced with the challenge of beating Hepatitis C, he took to the internet, researching alternative treatments for his condition.

When you’re desperate, you leave no stone unturned.

He was somewhat surprised when his research led him to medical cannabis.  He learned that it slowed down the progression of Hepatitis C.  For the first time since his diagnosis, he had hope.  The possibility that he might have more time to be a father to one-year-old Damon was exhilarating.  Being a good father to his son motivated him more than anything to seek to heal.

Michael contacted Phoenix Tears in Littleton, Colorado, where he learned that he could benefit greatly from cannabis oil.

I had not heard of medical cannabis.  I didn’t know about its medicinal properties.  But, I prayed about it and took it on good faith.  I thought, it could buy me some time.

He later discovered that “a guardian angel” had offered to pay for his treatment including travel and accommodations.  Ideally, he and his family would have moved to Colorado.  But, with an income of $800 a month for disability, it was not financially feasible.  Michael said:

We’re not wealthy enough to relocate.  It’s expensive to relocate to Colorado.

In time, cannabis oil proved to be a miracle medication that exceeded all of Michael’s expectations.  In seven months, the disease was completely eradicated from his body, and all of his internal organs were healing.  His blood platelet count was up, and he gained 50 lbs. He was off all of his other medications.

My viral load was undetectable.  My doctor cried! I had no idea what it was like to be healthy.  I was doing cartwheels at 47 years old!

Michael’s Health Declines after Ceasing Cannabis to Satisfy CPS Demands

If Michael chooses to stay in Tennessee and cease cannabis treatment in Colorado, he will have a clean drug screening.  If he chooses to leave the state for cannabis treatment in Colorado, CPS will view this as abandoning his children.  With the heart of a loving, nurturing father, Michael has chosen not to leave Tennessee.

My health is going downhill pretty fast.  I was the picture of health before they took my children.

Since he has been forced into mandatory drug testing by Tennessee CPS, he has relapsed back into the disease.  He understands the repercussions of his decision.  He said:

I’m literally dying.  I’m cooperating with this because I love my children.  I don’t count my life as worthy as their lives.  I choose to stay here and be run through the gauntlet.

The Children Suffer in DCS Care

Recently, Michael was told that Damon was having night terrors after visitation with him.  He said that DCS is saying that it is a result of the child seeing his father.  But, Michael disagrees.  He believes that it is because of the trauma of the child being separated from the people who love him. When their visits are over, Michael reports the heartbreak:

I have to pull my son off of my leg.

Michael fears that they will start putting his son on psychiatric drugs.  He longs to be more of a part of his children’s lives.  A while back, when he learned that his son had to have some testing done at Vanderbilt Hospital, Michael begged to be with him.  He said:

I wanted to be there, to love and comfort my son while he goes through such an atrocious event.  I wanted to crawl up in the bed with my son, comfort him where everybody is stabbing him under florescent lights.

Michael was devastated when his request was denied.

Michael said that his kids are being neglected while in DCS custody.  He spoke of a recently supervised visitation at a facility where the kids were playing with toys that had corrosive battery panels.

It was to the point that they were leaking acid—the bin was soaking wet.  I poured the bin out with battery acid.

He said that this was while a caseworker was on her phone “Facebooking” the whole time.  That day Michael had an employee sign a document stating that he witnessed the incident.

Supportive Case Workers Removed from Case

Michael said that there have been many caseworkers, about a dozen since his family’s involvement with CPS, who were supportive of him.  However, they have all been removed.  He said that two caseworkers quit their job because of his family’s situation.  In fact, he said that the first social worker quit three days into his case.

Note: This is very common in most of the Medical Kidnap stories that Health Impact News has reported. At least 75% of the parents who have shared their stories with us have told us that at least one social worker quit or was fired specifically because of their case.

Michael’s Biggest Regret – Calling DCS

Although it was done out of the desire to advocate for his son, the biggest regret of Michael’s life is that fateful phone call to DCS.  He says that at the time he thought, “these are the people we need in our lives.”  Of all of the resources in their area, he felt that DCS could offer the most help.  Laden with guilt, he now continually apologizes to his family:

I’m so sorry for what I’ve put you through … I was so honest with them [DCS].  Honest to a fault.

Despite having one of his doctors offer to testify as an expert witness to the benefit and necessity of cannabis, Judge Mark Johnson has not changed his stance on the issue.

Michael said that, in the beginning, the children were being kept in custody on the basis of his use of “an illicit substance” despite being “warned about the dangers of cannabis around children and disregarding it.”  Now that he has stopped cannabis treatment, their reasons have changed.

They’re saying I’m too sick to take care of my children.

A Dying Father’s Message for His Children

Michael told Health Impact News:

I will continue to decline in health, and will die unless I take my health into my own hands.  I can’t take Hepatitis C medication—it will wipe me out.  There’s nothing that they could do.

Michael said that his local doctor is a Christian who prays with him and wants him to go back to Colorado for treatment.  The doctor told him:

You need to go do what you gotta do.  You’ve got a lot of organ damage.  You were well on your way to recovery [before ceasing cannabis use].

The heart of the matter, however, is that Michael does not want to do anything that could be viewed as abandoning his children.  He wants his boys to know that he would never abandon them and that he is fighting for them—even at the expense of his own life.  He loves his children more than anything, and he just wants to hold them and love on them, like a good father would.

On April 7, Judge Clayburn Peeples is scheduled to terminate Michael’s parental rights, which will make way for the boys’ foster parents to finalize the adoption.

The news comes after Ivanka Trump received her own office in the White House along with access to classified information and a government-issued phone.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday is set to announce his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, will take on a White House role to oversee a broad effort to overhaul the federal government, The Washington Post reported, citing statements from both men.

Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and currently serves as a senior adviser, will lead the newly formed White House Office of American Innovation with an eye on leveraging business ideas and potentially privatizing some government functions, the Post said.

“The government should be run like a great American company. Our hope is that we can achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers, who are the citizens,” Kushner told the Post in an interview.

Some of the areas he will focus on are veterans’ care, opioid addiction, technology and data infrastructure, workforce training and infrastructure, according to the report.

In a statement to the Post, Trump said: “I promised the American people I would produce results, and apply my ‘ahead of schedule, under budget’ mentality to the government.”

The move comes just days after Trump suffered his first major political setback. Fellow Republicans pulled their healthcare plan after years of promising to undo former President Barack Obama’s 2010 health law.

Protesters gathered under the banner, “Jews won’t be free until Palestinians are, reject AIPAC, reject occupation.”

Jewish protesters marched Sunday outside the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, APICAC, conference in Washington as they slammed the lobbying firm for supporting policies of the right-wing Israeli government.

Protesters held a banner saying, “Jews won’t be free until Palestinians are, reject AIPAC, reject occupation.” IfNotNow, a group of young, left-wing U.S. Jews organized the action, which was billed as a “Reclaim, Resist, and Reimagine” rally. Almost 700 people said they would attend on the event’s Facebook page, Haaretz reported.

The outlet also said that it was the first time that a protest against the organization had drawn such big numbers and so many Jewish people.

The protesters carried signs against the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands as well as the increasing abuses against Palestinians.

“How can we have a sustained Jewish community in this country and a democratic Jewish community in Israel” as long as an occupation persists, Jeremy Zelinger, one of the protesters, told the Times of Israel. “AIPAC does not represent us.”

The Israeli lobbying arm blames Palestinians entirely for the absence of peace talks and refrains from criticizing any Israeli policies, including its illegal settlement building in the occupied West Bank.

The right-wing Israeli government, as well as AIPAC, welcomed the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president as they see him as a “true ally” to Israel who will not criticize settlement building and will not push for a two-state solution with the Palestinians allowing far-right factions to push for tShe annexation of the West Bank.

Trump has also said he would move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to the contested city of Jerusalem. Speaking at the AIPAC conference, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday revived talk of the possibility the U.S. may move its embassy, saying Trump was seriously considering the matter.

“After decades of simply talking about it, the president of the United States is giving serious consideration to moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.”

The Ministry of Defence’s former cyber security chief has accused the Government of trying to “use” the devastating Westminster attack to grab unnecessary and intrusive surveillance powers.

Major General Jonathan Shaw said ministers were attempting to “use the moment” to push for security services having more control, despite there being only a weak case for it.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd has turned up the heat on internet firms, saying it is “completely unacceptable” that authorities cannot look at encrypted social media messages of attacker Khalid Masood, but her words come as debate continues over allowing spy agencies further intrusive powers – only last year Parliament granted them sweeping new capabilities.

Government must be able to spy on Whatsapp users, Home Secretary says

After Ms Rudd demanded access to encrypted messages on sites like WhatsApp, Major General Shaw said unlocking the data would also allow other parties – like criminals and foreign spies – to access it, and said legislating for such a move would not necessarily make it easier to stop future terror attacks.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, he said: “I think there’s a lot of politics at play here.

“There’s a debate in Parliament about the whole Snooper’s Charter and the rights of the state and I think what they are trying to do is use this moment to nudge the debate more in their line.”

Major General Shaw argued that if the Government does push through laws to decode messages on sites like Whatsapp, terrorists would quickly use other secure methods of communicating.

Amber Rudd says WhatsApp’s encryption of messaging may come to an end after Westminster terror attack

He added: “The problem will mutate and move on. We are aiming at a very fluid environment here. We are in real trouble if we apply blunt weapons to this, absolutist solutions.”

Ms Rudd said on Sunday that there must be “no place for terrorists to hide”, following reports that the Westminster attacker Masood was on chat platform WhatsApp before his deadly assault on the streets surrounding Parliament.

Speaking on the Andrew Marr show, she said: “We need to make sure organisations like WhatsApp, and there are plenty of others like that, don’t provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other.

“In this situation we need to make sure our intelligence services have the ability to get into situations like encrypted WhatsApp.”

She hinted that the Government could be prepared to create new laws on the matter, and speaking to Sky News later said: “I’m calling time on terrorists using social media as their platform…I’m giving them more than a ticking off.”

But Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn told ITV’s Peston on Sunday he did not necessarily back Ms Rudd’s proposal for greater access for security services.

He said: “There is a question of always balancing the right to know, the need to know with the right to privacy.

“I think it probably is [broadly right at the moment]. I’ve been concerned about giving too much unaccountable power to anybody in our society.”

The Investigatory Powers Act gained Royal Assent last year, granting new surveillance powers to agencies including rules that force internet providers to keep complete records of every website that all of their customers visit.

Those are available to a wide range of agencies, which includes the Department for Work and Pensions as well as the Food Standards Agency.

Surveillance agencies can also force companies to help hack into phones and to collect more information than ever before on anyone in Britain.

No Force on Earth can Compete with NATO and U.S.’ Drug Trafficking Business in Afghanistan*

No Force on Earth can Compete with NATO and U.S.’ Drug Trafficking Business in Afghanistan*

By Jonas E. Alexis

“In country after country, from Mexico and Honduras to Panama and Peru, the CIA helped set up or consolidate intelligence agencies that became forces of repression, and whose intelligence connections to other countries greased the way for illicit drug shipments.”

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has done it again. He has recently grabbed the New World Order establishment by the horn and cut them to pieces with a chainsaw when he said that the establishment has done covert and illegal operations in places like Afghanistan. Lavrov did not mince words:

The U.S. operation against the Taliban and al-Qaeda was supported by all countries. It’s another matter that after receiving the international approval, the United States and its NATO allies, which took over in Afghanistan, started acting rather inconsistently, to put it mildly.

“During their operation in Afghanistan, the terrorist threat has not been rooted out, while the drug threat has increased many times over. The drug industry prospered. There is factual evidence that some of the NATO contingents in Afghanistan turned a blind eye to the illegal drug trafficking, even if they were not directly involved in these criminal schemes.

“Afghanistan is a separate case, although the current developments there, which are a result of the NATO operation’s failure, despite the carte blanche the bloc received from the international community, can be considered an unintended cause of managed chaos. In Iraq, Syria and Libya, this chaos was created intentionally.”

Lavrov is right in line with the scholarly world. Peter Dale Scott of the University of California writes:

“In country after country, from Mexico and Honduras to Panama and Peru, the CIA helped set up or consolidate intelligence agencies that became forces of repression, and whose intelligence connections to other countries greased the way for illicit drug shipments.”

Noted historian Alfred W. McCoy of the University of Wisconsin has reported the same thing. McCoy began to work on this issue while he was a Ph.D. candidate in Southeast Asian history at Yale back in 1972. He accused American officials “of condoning and even cooperating with corrupt elements in Southeast Asia’s illegal drug trade out of political and military considerations.” McCoy’s

“major charges was that South Vietnam’s President Nguyễn Văn Thiệu, Vice President Nguyễn Cao Kỳ, and Prime Minister Trần Thiện Khiêm led a narcotics ring with ties to the Corsican mafia, the Trafficante crime family in Florida, and other high level military officials in South Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand. Those implicated by McCoy included Laotian Generals Ouane Rattikone and Vang Pao and South Vietnamese Generals Đăng Văn Quang and Ngô Dzu.”

McCoy produced enough evidence which indicated that the CIA used “tribal mercenaries” in places like Laos in order to maintain their criminal and drug trafficking business.

In short, Lavrov was essentially deconstructing the CIA when he said that they have been spreading corruption throughout the world for decades. Whenever they take a break from spreading opium, they start perpetuating wars and creating false flags in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and now in Syria.

The CIA is certainly not happy about what Lavrov has said. This is one reason why they hate Russia and all that it represents.
