ST HELIER, JERSEY (21st September)


Dear All

I’m pleased to say our web­site is now fully restored after its recent assault by pet­ti­fog­ging Inter­net offi­cial­dom. My apolo­gies to those affected.

Boy am I look­ing for­ward to get­ting out on the road again next week to con­tinue my 2013 UK What’s News? tour! Next week­end, it’s Taunton and Torquay, so grab your dis­counted tick­ets now before pre-orders are closed at 5pm on Thurs­day, 31st Jan­u­ary. Door tick­ets, of course, will be avail­able on the day at the reg­u­lar price.

Right, on to this week’s hot news top­ics. My com­ments are in italics:

More good news on Vit­a­min D:

VITAMIN D TREATMENT FOR DEADLIEST FORM OF BREAST CANCER: (Nat­u­ral­News) Research just pub­lished in The Jour­nal of Cell Biol­ogy reveals two impor­tant dis­cov­er­ies about one of the most aggres­sive and dif­fi­cult to treat forms of breast can­cer. Inves­ti­ga­tors led by Susana Gon­zalo, Ph.D., assis­tant professor…


Yet more evi­dence that the immune sys­tem is depen­dent on an ade­quate D-3 serum con­cen­tra­tion for opti­mal oper­a­tion. For those want­ing to test their vit­a­min D-3, RAPID VITAMIN D TESTING IS AVAILABLE BY MAIL WHEREVER YOU ARE ON THE PLANET: If you are fed up with GPs and their end­less test­ing delays, Birm­ing­ham City Hospital’s Pathol­ogy Depart­ment will send you a test kit wher­ever you are and process your sam­ple in a hurry.

TAKING ASPIRIN DOUBLES RISK OF BLINDNESS: STUDY LINKS REGULAR USE WITH AGE-RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION: A new study found a link between reg­u­lar use of aspirin and age-related mac­u­lar degen­er­a­tion (AMD) — the most com­mon cause of sight loss in peo­ple over 50.

Here is a fab­u­lous vic­tory: CASE DISMISSED! TEXAS ENDS 15-YEAR FIGHT AGAINST CANCER DOCTOR BURZYNSKI: After a gru­el­ing 15-year long bat­tle, the Texas Med­ical Board has offi­cially ended its cru­sade to revoke Dr. Stanis­law Burzynski’s med­ical licence in an effort to end his use of Anti­neo­plas­tons, as well as his com­bi­na­tion gene-targeted ther­apy for cancer.

After last week’s Horse­burg­er­gate ‘scan­dal’, the world awak­ens to an ugly truth:THE REALLY BAD NEWS? HORSE BURGERS AREN’T THE ONLY NASTY SECRET IN THE CHILL CABINETS: The fact is that our trust in the big super­mar­ket chains is badly mis­placed, writes JOANNA BLYTHMAN. The sheer mas­sive­ness of the scale of their oper­a­tions is a cen­tral part of the problem.

Next: WOMEN MORE LIKELY TO DIE FROM SMOKING THAN 40 YEARS AGO, STUDY FINDS: The increased risk greatly out­weighs improve­ments in med­i­cine that have cut death rates among the major­ity of the pop­u­la­tion in the last 50 years. In the 1960s, smok­ing raised a woman’s chances of dying from lung can­cer 2.7 times. By the period 2000 to 2010 this had surged to 25.7-fold higher level of risk.



SURVEY: VACCINATED CHILDREN FIVE TIMES MORE PRONE TO DISEASE THAN UNVACCINATED CHILDREN: (Nat­u­ral­News) An ongo­ing study out of Ger­many com­par­ing dis­ease rates among vac­ci­nated and unvac­ci­nated chil­dren points to a pretty clear dis­par­ity between the two groups as far as ill­ness rates are con­cerned. As reported by the group Health Freedom…

FLU EPIDEMIC STRIKES MILLIONS OF AMERICANS ALREADY VACCINATED AGAINST THE FLU: (Nat­u­ral­News) The USA is in an offi­cial flu pan­demic panic right now, with Boston declar­ing a …

90 PERCENT OF WHOOPING COUGH OUTBREAK VICTIMS ARE ALREADY VACCINATED AGAINST WHOOPING COUGH: (Nat­u­ral­News) The utter fail­ure of the whoop­ing cough (per­tus­sis) vac­cine to pro­vide any real pro­tec­tion against dis­ease is once again on dis­play for the world to see, as yet another major out­break of the con­di­tion has spread pri­mar­ily through­out the…

AT LEAST 50 AFRICAN CHILDREN PARALYZED AFTER RECEIVING BILL GATES-BACKED MENINGITIS VACCINE: (Nat­u­ral­News) Bill and Melinda Gates have been on a cru­sade for at least the past decade to vac­ci­nate every sin­gle child on the planet. And one of their pri­mary geo­graph­i­cal tar­gets has been the con­ti­nent of Africa, where poor san­i­ta­tions and lack of…

MULTIPLE VACCINE DOSES HAVE RESULTED IN UP TO 145,000 CHILD DEATHS IN PAST 20 YEARS: (Nat­u­ral­News) The rec­om­mended child­hood vac­ci­na­tion sched­ule has changed dra­mat­i­cally over the years, with chil­dren now receiv­ing upwards of 30 vac­cines, includ­ing mul­ti­ple com­bi­na­tion vac­cines, before the age of six. And in many cases, doc­tors and nurses…

Next: FIGHTING MICROBES WITH MICROBES: Your body actu­ally con­tains about 100 tril­lion cells, but amaz­ingly only one in 10 is ‘human’. The oth­ers are made up of bac­te­ria and other micro-organisms. What may also sur­prise you is that soil has a microflora of its own, shar­ing many sim­i­lar­i­ties with the microflora in the human body.

The sub­ject of bowel flora and a patient’s poten­tial rad­i­cally to alter the out­come of pre­vi­ously intractable con­di­tions will be a major focus for the Cre­dence team in 2013.

Next: UNCOVERED, THETOXICGENE HIDING IN GM CROPS: REVELATION THROWS NEW DOUBT OVER SAFETY OF FOODS: A new study by the EU’s offi­cial food watch­dog, the Euro­pean Food Safety Author­ity (EFSA), has revealed that the inter­na­tional approval process for GM crops failed to iden­tify a virus gene.

Finally, two arti­cles from me: One on GLAUCOMA , a sur­pris­ingly com­mon con­di­tion affect­ing eye­sight, and one on LAUGHTER, why we need more in our lives, not only because laugh­ter is funny, but also an excel­lent stress­buster and boon to our health.

That’s it! Have a great week!
