In this article, I examine the five biggest insanely stupid health lies still being pushed by the mainstream media, almost as if these organizations think the world is flat or that mercury vapors can chase away evil spirits that cause disease.
You might even think this article is a joke. Although the content of this article is absolutely true, it really is a joke on the mainstream media which continues to lose readers and viewers by the minute. Where are all the readers and viewers going? To "alternative" news organizations like Natural News, where readership and social media numbers continue to grow by leaps and bounds. (Maybe it's because we tell the truth and aren't a bunch of pathetic sellouts to the corrupt, criminally-operated medical establishment, GMO poison pushers and drug companies.)
Insanely stupid health lie #1: Mercury in lobster is bad for you, but mercury in flu shots is good for young children!
When small amounts of mercury were recently found in Maine lobster, health authorities shut down the harvesting and the media reports on the "Mercury contamination from decades-old industrial pollution." (SOURCE)
Mercury is toxic, after all, and you shouldn't be eating it. Nearly everyone agrees on that point.
Yet, magically, when far higher concentrations of mercury are injected into children in the form of flu shots, suddenly all that mercury is completely safe and harmless, according to the mainstream media. Heck, the mercury even enhances the health of children, the media claims! Just watch this media clip which claims that mercury causes "improved behavior and mental performance" in children.
Yeah, seriously. I wasn't joking when I used the phrase "insanely stupid" in the title of this article.
How, exactly, is mercury harmful when eaten in lobster but completely safe when injected into the body's muscle tissue at far higher concentrations? To arrive at that conclusion, you have to be insanely stupid, of course. Or brain damaged by mercury in vaccines...
Yet this is the story you will continue to hear across the mainstream media: Mercury in vaccines is harmless, they say. Or better yet, some media outlets claim there is no mercury in vaccines at all, essentially claiming that mercury is a "conspiracy theory."
The most astonishing thing in all this is the surprising fact that brain damage can be so selective. Apparently, mercury in vaccines can destroy all rational thinking centers in the brain of a mainstream journalist, yet keep alive just enough circuitry to allow them to copy and paste corporate press releases distributed by vaccine manufacturers. Fascinating how that "selective lobotomy" operates, isn't it?
Insanely stupid health lie #2: There's no such thing as a food that helps prevent cancer
Here's another insanely stupid lie pushed by the media, and this one gets people killed. The lie is that "there is no such thing as any food which can prevent cancer."
This lie is engineered and circulated for the most insidious of motivations: to keep cancer rates high and enrich the cancer industry by attacking the very sources of information the American people desperately need to prevent cancer, reduce health care costs, reduce suffering and increase longevity.
The fact that a multitude of foods have anti-cancer properties is simply not debatable by any rational person who is sufficiently educated on the subject. Blueberries, red grapes, broccoli, onions, garlic, pumpkin seeds, almonds and all sorts of foods have well-documented, scientifically-validated anti-cancer properties. Any journalist who publicly denies this in an article only admits their own complete ignorance on the subject of anti-cancer foods and nutrition. This is what I mean when I describe mainstream media journalists as "nutritionally illiterate." They truly are!
Anyone interested in actually finding science that talks about anti-cancer foods only need visit Science.NaturalNews.com where over 11 million scientific studies are organized, keyword-linked and republished from the National Library of Medicine. A person intent on learning something can spend days on the site learning about anti-cancer foods and dietary supplements.
There are also, of course, extremely helpful books written by doctors and PhDs who are experts on the subject of anti-cancer foods. One of my favorites is called Foods to Fight Cancer: Essential foods to help prevent cancer. It describes all the scientifically-validated anti-cancer benefits of certain food groups such as citrus fruits (the white layer inside the peeling is anti-cancer) and cruciferous vegetables.
People who still think there's no such thing as anti-cancer foods must be living in the Stone Age, or are willfully ignorant.
Insanely stupid health lie #3: Fluoride improves public health
It's interesting that now even a notable professor at the Harvard School of Public Health agrees that fluoride consumption lowers IQs in children.
According to the published study, researchers "found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride's impact on the developing brain is warranted."
But hold on: the mainstream media says that anyone who asks intelligent scientific questions on fluoride toxicity is a nut case. Fluoride is ASSUMED to magically be safe, regardless of the evidence, and this myth is obediently repeated by nearly every mainstream media outlet as if it were established fact. When "fluoride" is ever mentioned, media journalists like up like toy soldiers and salute to the chemical industry's desire to eliminate toxic chemical waste by labeling it "fluoride" and dumping it into the public water supply.
The reality is far different from what we are told: Fluoride makes the population stupid. It lowers IQ points in children. It dumbs down the adult population, too, and keeps people cognitively suppressed. "Fluoride" isn't just fluoride, either: it's loaded with toxic chemicals and heavy metals.
But that's the whole point. Fluoride is a huge success at its intended mission: to keep people so incredibly stupid that they will actually believe the mainstream media, or the White House, or even -- gasp! -- CNN. To watch Piers Morgan and believe anything he says, you almost have to deliberately drink gallons of fluoride to eliminate all higher reasoning function in your brain.
Insanely stupid health lie #4: Nutrition is a waste of money
Don't waste your money on vitamin pills! Didn't you hear? Nutrition will only give you "expensive urine!"
It is with this particularly insidious lie that the American public is encouraged to stop buying vitamins and instead buy prescription drugs which are 10,000% more expensive and thereby create the world's most expensive urine of all. In fact, the average American's urine contains more dollars worth of prescription drugs than the entire day's salary of a factory worker in China.
According to the mainstream media -- which is largely supported by junk foods, fast food and prescription drugs advertising -- all you need to be truly healthy is junk foods, fast food and prescription drugs. All those silly "organics" and "dietary supplements" and "superfoods" are just a waste of time and money, didn't ya know? Only crazy people buy healthy food. Real Americans go to the pharmacy!
Oh, and don't worry about the fact that everybody around you who actually pursues a lifestyle of junk food, fast food and prescription drugs is dying from cancer, diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer's. That's just bad luck, we're told. It has nothing to do with their diets, because if you believe the mainstream media's health hacks, diet has nothing to do with health outcomes!
Astonishingly, many journalists actually believe in such lunacy.
Insanely stupid health lie #5: Disease outbreaks are caused by a lack of vaccinations
Every time you hear about an outbreak of whooping cough, or measles, or the flu, the entire national media lines up to declare, in obedient unison, "It's all due to a lack of vaccines!"
It's almost magical -- or possibly tragic -- to see the knee-jerk reaction play out across the bought-and-paid-for media. Didn't you know? Disease is actually CAUSED by a lack of vaccines?
When vaccines are not injected into children in high enough numbers, diseases spontaneously erupt from nothing!
This was, of course, the very theory of disease before the Germ Theory. Diseases were thought to spontaneously appear without cause, and mercury was one of the "treatments" given to patients by doctors of the day to make diseases go away.
Not much has changed in 250 years, it turns out. Today, the mysticism of vaccinations remains just as irrational and faith-based as the medical voodoo of the 1700's, and the lack of reasoning among those who write the news for the masses is just as pathetic today as it was back then. The technology may have changed in a couple of centuries, but human brains haven't changed at all, and they've always been easy for the establishment to manipulate.
Nowhere along the line has anyone bothered to look at the importance of nutritionally supporting the immune system so that it can fight off infectious disease without breaking down into symptomatic sickness. If you believe the mainstream media, your immune function has no purpose whatsoever and it was a mistake that you were ever born with one. Instead, you should let interventionist medicine run your immune system through the injection of viral strains, aluminum, mercury, MSG, formaldehyde and other deadly chemicals routinely used in vaccines.
You were, in other words, born an "incomplete" human who can only achieve completeness through multiple vaccine injections which then somehow make your failed immune system suddenly whole.
Except that in nearly every breakout of measles, mumps and flu, it's the vaccinated kids who get sick the most! Don't expect the mainstream media to ever report this fact. They don't even ask the question! (Why bother asking if you don't want to know the answer, right?)
If vaccines actually worked, then logically all the sick kids would be those who were never vaccinated. But that's almost never the case, it turns out. In most cases, vaccines increase susceptibility to infectious disease rather than decreasing it.
Yet more media lies...
Just to wrap up this collection of eye-opening observations, don't forget all the following lies which were also endlessly repeated by the media (and then proven to be outrageous lies):
• Obamacare would LOWER your health insurance costs and be readily available to everyone! And you could keep your job, too!
• GMOs are perfectly safe to eat in unlimited quantities, and without GMOs, half the world might starve to death.
• Drug companies need to charge monopoly prices only so they can raise enough money to develop cures for humanity. Because they care! And the only reason the FDA enforces a U.S. monopoly on drug prices while seizing importations of prescription drugs from Canadian pharmacies is because the FDA cares, too!
• All the money donated to pink ribbon cancer fundraisers goes to help find cures for cancer. (Total lie. Most of the money goes to fund mobile mammogram trucks that go into low-income neighborhoods to falsely diagnose poor women with cancer so the cancer centers can rack up huge Medicare billings. Ka-ching!)
• The government isn't listening to your phone calls, no way! That's just a crazy "conspiracy theory." And no, your credit card records and bank records aren't being tracked, either... stop being so paranoid!
