Clinically Indistinguishable From Polio Paralysis, But Twice as Deadly

Posted in General Science on February 28th, 2014 by dhawkinsmo

“Furthermore, while India has been polio-free [wild type] for a year, there has been a huge increase in non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP). In 2011, there were an extra 47500 new cases of NPAFP. Clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly, the incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received. Though this data was collected within the polio surveillance system, it was not investigated. The principle of primum-non-nocere [first, do no harm] was violated.” LINK HERE [emphasis mine]

I had never heard about AFP before, had you? Credit Dr. Kelly Brogan for informing me via a Facebook friend. In turn, Dr. Brogan informed me about Dr. Suzanne Humphries, who does an excellent job explaining the polio vaccine smoke and mirror job in her 2011 article ‘Smoke, Mirrors, and the “Disappearance” Of Polio.’ Pictured above is Dr. Humphries’ graph showing that AFP (what would have been called polio in 1955) is continuing to increase. From Dr. Humphries’ article …

When people ask me where all the children on iron lungs are, I would answer that they should ask Dr. Douglas Kerr from Johns Hopkins, who stated on pg. xv in the Forward to Donna Jackson Nakazawa’s book “The Autoimmune Epidemic”…

Infants as young as five months old can get Transverse Myelitis, and some are left permanently paralyzed and dependent upon a ventilator to breathe… my colleagues at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and I hear about or treat hundreds of new cases every year.

Does the public have any idea that there are hundreds of cases of something that would once have been called polio, and some of those children will be dependent on a modern version of the iron lung? No. Parents today think that the Salk vaccine eliminated any need for ventilators, because the pictures of all these children on iron lungs are no longer paraded in front of people in order to create fear. Besides which, today’s “iron lungs” don’t look like a prototype submarine. They are barely recognizable as today’s “ventilators.”

Folks, “polio” – or if you please, the symptoms clinically indistinguishable from polio symptoms – is not being eradicated by vaccinations. That’s a lie repeated by many well intentioned people, including medical people who do not even realize it’s a lie that they have been fed.

How to Beat Mineral Depletion in Grocery Store Produce

Posted in Healthy Food & Agriculture on February 21st, 2014 by dhawkinsmo

Many people today are aware that our topsoils are not only being washed away by tillage, but also that they are depleted of minerals compared to what they used to be 100 years ago. Here’a an article that discusses this problem. LINK HERE. What to do about the problem? Well, this article is promoting ocean based fertilizers – which, I am sure, are great. But how much do they cost? Probably a lot. But hold on. Most people don’t realize that there is a solution available to this problem which can often be obtained for free. Yes, it’s possible to turn dirt, water, sunshine, minerals from deep in the ground, air and just a little bit of fun, healthful labor – nothing more – into the most nutrient dense, mineral rich fruits and vegetables on the planet. Purchase my $1 eBook to find out the solution. Yes, that’s right. Just $1. I absolutely guarantee that you will save many times more than the $1 you spend or your money back. If you implement this system, you will also have vegetables that are much better than grocery store vegetables and better than traditional home garden vegetables, full of the proper minerals to give you and your family the best health possible. My eBook tells you everything you need to know and tells my story as well. I’m not asking you to try something that I have not done successfully myself. Try it. You’ll like it! CLICK HERE to purchase “The Lazy Gardener” eBook for only $1.  Something else you should know – “Organic” doesn’t necessarily solve the mineral problem if by “organic” they simply mean “pesticide free.”  If “organic” produce is fertilized with fertilizers which contain the proper mix of minerals – such as (presumably) the ocean fertilizers referenced above – then great.  But not all “organic” produce is grown this way.

This system is SOOOOO easy too. Jesus said “Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” For years, I labored and labored trying to get healthy produce from my garden. Then I discovered the natural (God’s) system and my gardening has been sooooo easy ever since! One more Scripture I want to share with you is found in Psalm 127 where it says “In vain you rise early and stay up late toiling for food to eat, for He grants sleep to those He loves.” Enjoy!

Global Warming, Gaia Hypothesis and Permaculture

Posted in Healthy Food & Agriculture on February 17th, 2014 by dhawkinsmo

I hear a lot of my friends say things like “global warming, schlobal warming! … that’s nonsense … look how cold this winter is” and “the global warming myth is just being used to control our lives more” and so on. Well, I have studied this a lot now and I would ask you to consider some points …

(1) Joel Salatin – America’s most influential farmer – recently wrote “History will vindicate Allan Savory as one of the greatest ecologists of all time.” “Folks This Ain’t Normal” (2011), p. 175 … OK, so what does Allan Savory have to say?

(2) Allan Savory wrote the following … “Simplistic and counter intuitive as it may be the fate of civilization today hangs on two slender threads – the correct management of livestock [WHAT??!!] and the rapid development of benign energy to sustain cities and mass transport. Excessive emissions of carbon and other gases from fossil fuels are not the only causes of global climate change, nor are they the greatest cause of climate change, as popularly espoused. … To avert disaster on a scale almost unimaginable a global strategy is required that addresses carbon emissions while effectively dealing with biodiversity loss and biomass burning to reverse desertification that is not caused by atmospheric carbon buildup.”

(3) N. Africa was once lush and fertile. Now it is a desert. What happened? Archaeological evidence indicates that it was improper agriculture – that is, agriculture that degrades soil, such as tillage and improper livestock management. See my article HERE for some science papers on this topic.

(4) Gaia Hypothesis. Lovelock and Margulis. No, this is not just New Age crap. It’s real science. One major part of it basically states that the earth’s Hydrologic Cycle is heavily influenced by terrestrial vegetative cover. In the recent book from MIT Press, “Scientists Debate Gaia” (2008), on page 303, we read “The results here are consistent with the results of other studies which demonstrate that the replacement of higher albedo desert with lower albedo vegetation in North Africa increases the regional rainfall by increasing the intensity of the summer monsoon.” Google it for yourself. In other words, overgraze N. Africa and/or till it to death by planting wheat, corn, soybeans, etc., thereby removing vegetative cover and guess what happens? Less rain. This in turns makes even less vegetative cover and before you know it … you’ve got DESERT, precisely what we have now in N. Africa – the Sahara Desert. I first learned about this mechanism from Joel Salatin in his book “Salad Bar Beef” and later confirmed it by Googling science papers like this one.

(5) Have a look at Google Earth and notice how many areas of the world are now desert or are quickly becoming desert. It’s scary. Allan Savory is right.

(6) If you do more reading along these lines, you find out that droughts and floods (and presumably ice storms and snowstorms) will become more severe and more frequent, the more we strip our land surfaces of vegetative cover.

What to do about this?

(1) Google Allan Savory’s TED Talk and watch it.  Allan Savory is one of the keynote speakers at the largest Permaculture event ever, next month.  Go if you can.  You can hear Allan, Joel and many other Permaculture leaders.

(2) Oppose tillage and support proper grazing management with your food choices as best you can.

(3) Realize that Jesus is coming back and will make a New Heavens and a New Earth (thank God!) but until that happens, the Genesis Stewardship Mandate has not been revoked. Let’s be good stewards!

Regina Dugan, Google, DARPA and the Mark of the Beast

Posted in Biblical on February 16th, 2014 by dhawkinsmo

I used to read a lot of Tim LaHaye books a few years back, but it’s been awhile. But this looks interesting again. Former DARPA head Regina Dugan joins Google and is pushing electronic tattoos, prompting the Examiner.com (a secular publication) to write this rather interesting article entitled “The Mark of the Beast on Steroids: The SMART Pill.” Enjoy!

Calories Per Acre of Various Foods – Potatoes Win!

Posted in Healthy Food & Agriculture on February 15th, 2014 by dhawkinsmo

[CORRECTED POST] In the Permaculture Movement, we are interested in Feeding People Sustainably. So we are interested in producing the most calories possible in a given land area. But not just any calories. You would not be very healthy if, for example, you got all your calories from refined sugar! But, interestingly, you COULD get all your calories from potatoes if you had to and you would survive. That is fascinating to me, which is why I started growing potatoes last year. So how may people could you feed from an acre of potatoes? Well, considering that you need about 1 million calories per year per person (using the adult male number of about 3000 calories per day), according to THIS ARTICLE, you could feed 17 people from one acre!! Wow. Has anyone ever tried eating a “potato only” diet? Yes, actually. His name is Chris Voigt and you can read about his experiment HERE. Chris says “My doctor is interested to see the final results, and he suspected I would be just fine at the end of 60 days.” Hmm. You’d have to get really creative with your recipes I guess. Ok so now my wheels are really turning … 17 million calories per acre from potatoes. And here’s the “100 lbs of Potatoes from 4 Square Feet” article I linked on Facebook earlier. But both systems need compost.  Stay tuned for compost calculations.

Tree Leaf Composting Calculations

Posted in Healthy Food & Agriculture on February 15th, 2014 by dhawkinsmo

[CORRECTED POST] For a BackToEdenFilm.com gardening enthusiast geek like me, this post by Bev Walker entitled “The Numbers of Leaves” is truly Geek Heaven. I am now in my second year of successful gardening with the BTE (wood chip) method and I am studying ways to collect leaves and twigs more reliably so this is a great article for me.

[PREVIOUS ERRONEOUS VERSION OF POST - DISREGARD - I should have checked this author's calcs with the scientific literature before posting.  72 tons of leaf fall per year is way, way, way too high.  According to this paper it's 5400 kg/hectare (4752 lbs/acre)]

For a BackToEdenFilm.com gardening enthusiast geek like me, this post by Bev Walker entitled “The Numbers of Leaves” is truly Geek Heaven. I am now in my second year of successful gardening with the BTE (wood chip) method and I am studying ways to collect leaves and twigs more reliably so this is a great article for me. One big take away I get from this article is that the four neighbors participating in this leaf composting project collecting from their own yards totaling about 1.5 acres of area, end up every Fall with a volume of 7263 cubic yards of leaves every year. They reduce this down with a shredder by a 10:1 ratio giving a pre-compost volume of 726 CY. This calculates out to 109 tons(!) of leaf fall weight every year! This is further reduced during the natural composting process to yield an estimated 98 tons of compost every year. From 1.5 acres. So 72 tons of leaves per acre => 65 tons compost per acre. Wow!
