Hungary Destroys All Monsanto GMO Corn Fields

Hungary has taken a stand against Monsanto and GMO corn by destroying around 1000 acres of  GMO corn - said Hungary deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development - Lajos Bognar. 

In Hungary genetically modified (GM) seeds are banned. There is no certainty that the GM crops they burned didn't spread any seeds or pollen before destroyed so checks will continue despite the law that states traders are supposed to make sure their products are GMO free! I know right?! During the investigation, they found Pioneer Monsanto products among the seeds planted. Once discovered they burned and wrote the years harvest off. They are that serious.

Most of the local farmers have complained since they discovered they were using GMO seeds. With the season already under way, it was too late to sow new seeds, so this years harvest was lost. The company that sold the seeds in Baranya county is now being liquided... so, if any compensation is paid, the money will be paid mainly to that company’s creditors, rather than the farmers. 

Just another country you can add to the list of conscious and awake. Is yours next?

Anti-Depressants Could Make You Drop Dead

This is just a report and warning that anti-depressants could make you drop dead with no warning. We don't do this to scare you. We do this to empower you. 

Feel free to share and read on.

The list of anti-depressants that can cause sudden death is growing... add citalopram - also known as Celexa and Cipramil - the latest such drug to be added to the list, according to a new study.

Find Natural Anti-Depressants
Research published recently in the British Medical Journal, revealed that citalopram tends to cause a lengthening of the Q-T interval.

Indeed, a number of drugs are known for creating this phenomenon, the most notable among them being methadone, which has been documented as causing sudden death in some patients, especially when dosages are increased too rapidly. "There are no symptoms indicating a risk. A perfectly normal person will literally drop dead," writes Heidi Stevenson at 

The heartbeat is regulated by a series of electrical pulses, and key points of the pattern printed on an EKG are labeled P, Q, R, S, T. If the time between the Q and T waves is lengthened, it is referred to as "Q-T elongation," or a prolonged Q-T segment; the only way to know if it is occurring; however, is with an EKG. "There are generally no external clues, so outside of testing, you would have no way of knowing that you've been affected," Stevenson writes. Researchers, in their report, were specific about the risk of sudden death associated with Celexa; the larger the dose and the greater the risk. Also, they noted that the FDA said, "Citalopram causes dose-dependent QT interval prolongation. Citalopram should no longer be prescribed at doses greater than 40 mg per day." That claim is supported in Medscape's drug reference for citalopram. "Doses above 40 mg/day are not recommended because of risk for QT prolongation without additional benefit for treating depression," says the reference. In performing their study, researchers examined 38,397 adults who were either taking an antidepressant or methadone at some time between February 1990 and August 2011, a period of more than two decades. Antidepressants taken during that period by the patients involved in the study include citalopram (Celexa), escitalopram (Lexapro), fluoxetine (Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil), sertraline (Zoloft), amitriptyline, bupropion (Zyban), duloxetine (Cymbalta), mirtazapine (Remeron), nortriptyline, and venlafaxine (Effexor). Each participant received an EKG 14-90 days after they had taken their prescribed medication. Researchers found that all antidepressants affect the A-T interval in some manner, though methadone affected it more significantly by a greater amount. In one drug, however - bupropion (Zyban) - had the opposite effect. The Q-T interval was shortened. But a shorter Q-T interval, by comparison, can also cause heart arrhythmias and fainting, conditions which can also lead to sudden death. Earlier research found a similar connection The worst antidepressants - those which lengthened the Q-T interval the most, on average - were citalopram (Celexa), escitalopram (Lexapro), and amitriptyline, researchers said. Overall, one in five subjects taking these drugs experienced abnormal EKGs, and specifically longer Q-T intervals. Researchers said the clinical significance of these findings; however, is as yet unknown. Writes Stevenson: We do know that an extended QT interval can result in sudden death. In reality, this doesn't happen often - though no one can quantify the frequency of death. So, it seems that the only ethical approach is to inform people of the potential risk of sudden death by taking these drugs. But we already know that genuine informed consent almost never happens. People are routinely told that the risk is minimal and the specifics are not stated. Ultimately, though, the only one who lives the results are the person inside your own skin. Earlier research also found that antidepressants caused a lengthening of the Q-T interval. 

In 2004, Dr. Dan M. Roden, from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, wrote in The New England Journal of Medicine, and said, "the single most common cause of the withdrawal or restriction of the use of drugs that have already been marketed has been the prolongation of the QT interval," which can be "fatal."

The Water Hyssop Medicinal Uses

The water hyssop. There is some debate as to the native status of this little herb but, despite having a Sanskrit name (Brahmi), it has been in North America as long as anyone can remember so it's probably pan-tropical. This little plant has a phenomenal variety of medicinal uses and has been utilized from ancient times right up to the present. I can't begin to list them all but uses including a natural way to improve memory, antioxidant properties, tranquillizer, muscle relaxant, anti-anxiety and a natural anti-depressant.

Monsanto has been found guilty of chemical poisoning

A French farmer who is now disabled and unable to continue his farming duties because of pesticide poisoning has won in court against Monsanto! 

Monsanto has been found guilty of chemical poisoning! A court in Lyon ruled that Monsanto’s Lasso weedkiller formula, (containing alachlor) caused Paul Francois to develop neurological damage as persistent memory loss, headaches, and stuttering during speech.

Reports say that the 47 year old farmer sued Monsanto in 2004 after inhaling the Lasso product while cleaning his sprayer tank equipment. Soon after, Francois had symptoms that prevented him from working. The reason Monsanto is getting caught out this time is because the Lasso’s packaging did not have adequate warnings about the dangers of exposure. The French court agreed with the claims and evidence presented, declaring earlier this year that “Monsanto is responsible for Paul Francois’ suffering and must entirely compensate him.” The court is said to be looking for expert opinions on how to gauge Francois’ losses in order to determine how much Monsanto should be required to pay. 

“It is a historic decision in so far as it is the first time that a (pesticide) maker is found guilty of such a poisoning,” said Francois Lafforgue, Paul Francois’ lawyer, to Reuters. 

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), exposure to alachlor can cause damage to the liver, kidneys, spleen, eyes, and could lead to the development of anemia or even cancer. (

In 2007, France banned Lasso in the country in accordance with a European Union (EU) directive enacted in 2006 prohibiting the chemical from further use on crops in any member countries. Despite the evidence shows alachlor can disrupt hormonal balance, reproductive or developmental problems, cancer, and still the chemical is still being used on crops throughout the U.S. to this very day.

So... Who's going to the march May 25th -?

Foods That Fight Candida

Candida albicans is the most common form of fungal yeast infection. 

This type of infection is called candidiasis, or more commonly known as thrush. The risk of developing thrush is greatly increased if you are pregnant, have diabetes, take antibiotics or have a weakened immune system. 
Fortunately there are a number of great foods that have anti-fungal and anti bacterial properties to treat candida naturally. Many are great staple ingredients that can be added to any meal, or eaten on their own.
Antifungal foods:
Garlic, Coconut Oil, Rutabaga, Onions, Pumpkin Seeds and Olive Oil all in their own right contain anti-fungal  properties. 
Detox foods:
Seaweed, Lemon and Lime Juice and Ginger all have the ability to remove toxins from the body and can help with pain and inflammation associated with candida. 
The best way to have these foods is to use them in cooking, although it is possible to buy them in supplement form.
