2013 Dirty Dozen and Clean 15

2013 Dirty Dozen and Clean 15

About this time every year the Environmental Working Group releases their latest list of foods highest and lowest in pesticide residue. This week I want to share with you their updated lists for 2013. They have again expanded the Dirty Dozen with a Plus category to highlight two crops -- kale and collard greens. 

According to the EWG, these vegetables "did not meet traditional Dirty Dozen criteria but were commonly contaminated with highly toxic organophosphate insecticides. These insecticides are toxic to the nervous system and have been largely removed from agriculture over the past decade. But they are not banned and still show up on some food crops."

Here are EWG's updated lists for 2013:

Dirty Dozen:
  1. Apples
  2. Celery
  3. Cherry Tomatoes
  4. Cucmbers
  5. Hot Peppers
  6. Nectarines
  7. Peaches
  8. Potatoes
  9. Spinach
  10. Strawberries
  11. Bell Peppers
  12. Kale/Collard Green
  13. Summer Squash
Clean 15:
  1. Asparagus
  2. Avocados
  3. Cabbage
  4. Cantaloupe
  5. Corn
  6. Eggplant
  7. Grapefruit
  8. Kiwi
  9. Mangoes
  10. Mushrooms
  11. Onions
  12. Papayas
  13. Pineapples
  14. Sweet Peas - frozen
  15. Sweet Potatoes

Health Care Adrift

I rarely if ever add guest posts to my blog.  In a way this may be seen as snobbish, however I don't see it that way.  As Natural Health News is the original an earliest source for quality good natural news.  Natural Health News led by example and sites that get more readers stealthily spied on our web sites, copied our writing without attribution, used our original format, and began selling their souls to the same banter you find on mainstream media sites.  But then there are many more lemmings than I'd care to document.

Because Natural Health News has high standards I have chosen an article very similar to an issue I was discussing at a recent Socrates Cafe gathering.  The ideas written in this post are much the same as I tried to espouse to other skeptical group members.  But do remember that the "death panel" remains in the Affordable Care Act , section 3403.  It is rationing of care by fiat.

Of course this is an old practice by Big Insurance.  It certainly continues and will explode once 2014 arrives.

My best advice is to learn to be better able to take care of your health.

And I do hope you think about what this writer has to say -
Rescuing Medicaid and Medicare Patients The pain we feel in life is going to get worse though it is possible to go against the flow and rise above it all. Specifically the pain of poverty is going to continue to rise in the United States as Greek-style International Monetary Fund oriented austerity is being imposed on the US. Taxes and regulations are increasing and public benefits and services are going down. The US is now starting to be hollowed out as efficiently as Greece and that will be the death of the western medical system and the economy built around it.
Pharmaceutical multinationals have halted shipments to Greece because of the economic crisis. Even the Swiss Red Cross slashed its supply of donor blood to Greece because it has not paid its bills. Pharmacies in Greece describe chaotic scenes as clients desperately search from shop to shop for much-needed drugs. Greece’s Pharmaceutical Association said "around 300 drugs are in very short supply," adding that "It’s a disgrace.
Congress needs to cut the debt, or that’s what the budget experts are saying. They say the government needs to rein in the mushrooming cost of the biggest budget-busting programs: Social Security, Medicaid and especially Medicare. The American administration is now wanting to make some administrative changes in the Medicare program that might lower payments to healthcare providers, while also reducing benefits or raising premiums for wealthier Medicare patients. These tinkering tactics don’t come anywhere close to addressing the monstrous programs that the country nor the people can afford anymore.
The paradigm of western medicine has led to the creation of a very expensive ineffective medical system that is bankrupting the government as well as its citizens. Mainstream medicine prefers that people endure its treatments no matter what the cost. Even if its principles and practices break the nation it would rather civilization ends as long as they can continue to build proton beam radiation machines at the cost of hundreds of millions of dollars each.
We all know, even doctors know, how dangerous allopathic medicine is. It is as dangerous as it is expensive. The point is that we do not need nor can we afford this form of medicine that is going to be wiped out in the next great depression as it is now being wiped out in Greece.

Bernanke at the Helm

Though Bernanke seems to believe that we should all go down with the ship it does not have to be that way. Bernanke knows nothing about medicine and seems to be blind to the future because as everyone also knows he is stuck in the past. He is what I call a true blue level consciousness person, someone stuck in the levels of ideas and concepts that only exist in memory and thus the past. His high speed printing presses might be leading the bullet train to a crash at the end of the tracks but he is not looking forward only back.
It’s always the Great Depression for him, the early thirties unless that is all a lie and he is just the message-boy of the people who own him, the Federal Reserve System and the rest or most of the central banks around the world.
In the world of medicine the train wreck has arrived. Community-based cancer care, where until recently four out of five Americans with cancer were treated, is in serious crisis. The April 1 payment cut to Medicare mandated by sequestration will make cancer clinics go broke if they give Medicare patients the chemotherapy they need, oncologists claim. “A lot of us can’t believe this is happening,” said Jeff Vacirca, chief executive of North Shore Hematology Oncology Associates on Long Island.
Cancer clinics are turning away thousands of patients due to fears that treating them could jeopardize the bottom line. Oncologists across the country are finding it impossible to administer chemotherapy drugs while keeping their clinics afloat, let alone turn a profit.
This video is about people dying because of Obama care. But the conclusions are wrong. Everything is wrong when they start talking about expensive chemotherapy. Some think we should take water from a stone (money from a bankrupt government) and keep feeding the medical paradigm that does not allow for safer, less expensive and even more effective cancer treatments. Or we can save a few hundred billion and trillions through the next decade by learning to treat cancer differently.
For most people that is just too big of an idea to swallow but I have published a complete form of treatment that can be administered to cancer patients at home for a cost of four to five thousand dollars for a three month program. I believe my Natural Allopathic Medicine protocol approach is safer and more effective than their miserable system of cancer treatments that have hardly changed at all through the decades.
When the financial system finally splits at the seams and the economy goes down hard survival skills will include learning how to take care of oneself whether one has cancer or not. Might as well start learning unless you think you have all the time in the world and that we can magically print our way to heaven like Bernanke believes.
Let him pay for the ridiculously expensive cancer treatments with his digital money. All they have to decide is to do it and presto money can fall from heaven into oncology clinics across the country. They do it for the banks why not for the cancer patients? It is time to stop thinking of just the price of gold and start thinking about how we are going to take care of our families when the system completely collapses around us as it is already doing in Greece, Spain and many other countries.

Consider this when thinking of vaccines

While I am terribly busy with so many details too numerous to mention following a recent move and the fall out from this change I find it very important to share this information with you.
Being one of the first bloggers to report the issue of vaccination boys with the terrible solution following on reports of extreme adverse reactions in girls, the damage continues to rise.  And what is even worse little or no information on this issue is published in US mainstream media.  It is certainly not what you are getting from your doctor.  But in all cases of any vaccine make sure you ask first.
From Vaccination is Not Immunization

Let’s start with the ones cited by Merck:
fever, nausea, pharyngitis, dizziness, NVD, bronchospasm and Gastroenteritis, appendicitis, PID, upper respiratory infection
- 2007 Physicians Desk Reference [227] p 1987

Additional side effects discovered later include loss of consciousness, loss of vision and seizures.  (Lopes, [87]) And oh yes, paralysis.

Then the British media began to report still other effects of Gardasil, like the deaths of 30 young girls, which American media never mentioned.  [94]
 A frequent consequence of the HPV shot is Guillain Barre syndrome, an autoimmune condition resulting in paralysis.  There have been several such cases both in the UK and the US, including a high profile case in Oct 2008 of a 12 year old British girl who collapsed 2 days after the HPV shot and was subsequently paralyzed from the waist down.  [94] Her first symptoms came on within 30 minutes.  Again, no US media.

 Newer 2012 intel from the VAERS database - the government tracking system for vaccine injuries since 1991 - this data makes public the 26 American girls who died from the Gardasil shot in 2011.  [11] The story has never been in any mainstream media source.  But you can easily find these government documents [1], although scrolling through them to find the 26 deaths will require that you do a search for the word death.
 Diligent research came from Judicial Watch, a group that recently unearthed the data through Freedom of Information.  [11]
 In the US and UK combined more than 100 girls died from the HPV vaccine between 2010 and 2012.  See that anywhere on FOX News?

 Can the vaccine itself cause cancer? That’s a fair question - we’re talking about a vaccine that they’re claiming prevents cancer by imitating a pathogen that itself causes cancer, right? So wouldn’t we want to be fairly secure that this vaccine wouldn’t cause cancer? Here’s what the manufacturer states: 
    “Gardasil ...  not been evaluated for carcinogenicity or impairment of fertility.”  (2007 [227] p1986 )
 Wonderful.  They want to vaccinate all American 12 year olds with a new vaccine for cancer and they don’t even know whether or not it causes cancer, or makes the recipients infertile.

Gardasil is a 3 shot series at $360.  [86]
    “The vaccine is expected to reach $1 billion in sales next year, ... could make Gardasil ...within five years, sales of more than $4 billion, according to Wall Street analysts.” [88]

 Again, the whole story of HPV vaccine is much more invidious than we’re representing here.  For those readers seeking the real extent of the science behind the HPV vaccine industry, the IARC Monographs is your ticket.  [59] The vigilant reader is also invited to follow up these sources:  [11], [22], [87]

 Rarely has such a calculated, systematic misrepresentation of fact been attempted in which data is so obviously manipulated, issues so deliberately obscured, and financial interests so obsequiously served.

 With the uncertainty about the safety and efficacy of the HPV vaccine, the certainty of the side effects, the prodigious economic upside to global dissemination irrespective of its scientific merits, the absence of long-term studies, and the ludicrous religious/ethical/equality media controversy smokescreen designed to distract us from the underlying scientific issues, is this really a vaccine you want to try out on your innocent little 9 yr old?  Source
