NOTHING says summer holidays quite like ice cream. On a hot afternoon by the sea, there's little to beat the simple pleasure of a cooling scoop of your favourite flavour. Can food get much more satisfying than this?
Vic Morris thinks it can, with the help of nanotechnology. He is part of a team tweaking foods to trick the body into feeling pleasantly full long after the final mouthful - and without overeating.
AUSTRALIAN-MADE flu vaccine Fluvax, found to trigger a nine times higher than expected rate of convulsions in babies, will remain available for use but subject to precautionary measures.
Fluvax, made by CSL, has been identified as being the most likely trigger of 59 convulsion cases in Western Australia and about 20 cases elsewhere, including six in Victoria. All babies fully recovered.
Despite investigations over the past month, experts hav... (more)
To many people, Barbara Harris is a dangerous woman. A maverick "do-gooder" from California, she has been accused of effectively promoting eugenics via the back door by paying for drug addicts to be sterilised.
Despite being lambasted in the media and condemned by health experts in the UK, Harris is visiting cities around Britain looking to launch pilot projects that will help her achieve her goal of reducing "the number of substance-exposed births to zero".
If City Council members Luis Alejo and Manuel Bersamin believe that they can forcibly turn a falsehood into reality, they are mistaken.
Tuesday’s City Council meeting was another romp through Never Never Land for the two as they vehemently denied the public’s accusations that they are trying to fluoridate Watsonville’s water against the wishes of the voters.
Sure, Bersamin can read a letter from the state that calls on the city to fluoridate and Alejo can say the is... (more)
OPINION: The practice of adding a chemical - sodiumsilicofluoride or hydrofluorosilicic acid - to everybody's drinking water is nothing short of fanatical.
What rational person takes a substance captured in a factory smoke-stack because it's too toxic to be discharged into the air, and then cannot be got rid of in the sea or a river because it's not allowed by international marine law, and decides to put into every man, woman and child's drinking water?
Among the 78 research projects to receive $100,000 grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation earlier this week as part of the Grand Challenges in Global Health initiative, is an effort by researchers at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, to develop a non-invasive, reversible form of birth control for men -- using ultrasound. Based on preliminary trials in rats, researchers James Tsuruta and Paul Dayton hope to deve... (more)
(SALEM, Ore.) - Today Salem-News reports that a joint experiment by Russia's National Association for Gene Security and the Institute of Ecological and Evolutional Problems has revealed that hamsters fed genetically modified (GM) foods produce grandchildren that are unable to produce fourth generation offspring.
Scientist Alexei Surov described the experiment, in which they monitored the behavior, weight gain and birthrate of several groups of hamsters. Upon birth of the second ge... (more)
Statistics from a study conducted by the New Zealand Ministry of Health suggest that there are no advantages derived from fluoridation. These statistics actually match similar arguments set forth by the American Dental Association.
The latter organization conducted a large study on some 39000 American children and found that they did not derive any advantages from the use of fluoride.
The process of fluoridation is the practice of adding fluoride minerals to a wate... (more)
A DEPARTMENT OF Human Services caseworker pressured a pregnant Mayfair teenager to undergo a late-term abortion by threatening to take away either her toddler or her unborn baby if she had the child, according to the teen's foster mother.
The alleged strong-arm tactic happened one day after DHS learned of the pregnancy, when the girl was about 22 weeks pregnant, according to her foster mother and the girl's social worker, Marisol Rivera.
If scientists from Mars were to study the human male's reproductive system they would probably conclude that he is destined for rapid extinction. Compared to other mammals, humans produce relatively low numbers of viable sperm – sperm capable of making that long competitive swim to penetrate an unfertilised egg.
As many as one in five healthy young men between the ages of 18 and 25 produce abnormal sperm counts. Even the sperm they do produce is often of poor quality. In fact... (more)
It's not a mystery, it's due to sterilizing genetically engineered foods and plastics, population reduction is part of the globalist agenda though so they won't ever tell you that. No, you're supposed to be scared of Co2 which is the basic building block of all life.
WHEN her baby died soon after delivery, Gulbahor Zavidova, 28, a poor farmer’s wife, longed to be pregnant again. After months of trying she and her husband visited a doctor who told her she could never have another child because she had been sterilised.
The procedure had been performed immediately after she gave birth, by doctors who did not ask her consent. On learning she could not bear children, her husband left her.
“Not a day passes without me crying,” she sai... (more)

Thousands of people in one county of southern China have been sterilized in just days as part of a crackdown on violations of the country’s controversial one-child policy.
A 20-day campaign was begun on 7 April to sterilize 9,559 adults in Puning county, which with a population of 2.24 million is the most populous area of Guangdong Province. On 12 April local officials said they had already achieved about half their goal.
Doctors have been working 20 hour days to co... (more)
The United States has become the psychiatric drugging capital of the world for kids with children being medicated at a younger and younger age. Medicaid records in some states show infants less than a year old on drugs for mental disorders.
The use of powerful antipsychotics with privately insured children, aged 2 through 5 in the US, doubled between 1999 and 2007, according to a study of data on more than one million children with private health insurance in the January, 20... (more)
A Senate committee in Baton Rouge on April 13 advanced legislation that would require water companies to inform their customers of plans to fluoridate their water supplies and forbid the purchase of the chemical additive from China.
How can we afford to spend money on one more poison for drinking water?
"Fluoride" is actually a toxic waste taken from the scrubbers in smoke stacks of industry and phosphate fertilizer companies. It contains five chemicals, none of whi... (more)
Local campaigners wanting to keep fluoride out of Far North water supplies have lodged complaints about five of the Northland DHB's fluoridation advertisements.
"The DHB has spent thousands of taxpayer dollars to tell us we should have toxic waste in our water" says complainant Cliff Royal. "These ads are false and misleading in the most blatant ways" he says.
"Not only did the DHB's sham trial show no benefit from fluoridation, the Ministry of Health's national fig... (more)
The city of Bolivar may discontinue fluoridation of the city’s public water system due to rising costs, but members of the Board of Aldermen said Tuesday, March 30, they want to hear from the public before making a decision.
Discontinuing fluoridation could save the city about $40,000 this year and $17,000 in subsequent years, according to City Administrator Ron Mersch.
A Report of Sanitary Survey from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources sent to the... (more)
In what is being hailed as a major victory for workers in the biotech and nanotech fields, a former scientist with pharmaceutical firm Pfizer has been awarded $1.37 million for being fired after raising the alarm over researchers being infected with a genetically engineered "AIDS-like" virus.
Becky McClain, a molecular biologist from Deep River, Connecticut, filed a lawsuit against Pfizer in 2007, claiming she had been wrongly terminated for complaining about faulty safety equipme... (more)
Iowa City's water superintendent, backed by public health officials, is recommending that the city continue its practice of fluoridating the water supply.
A group of residents who oppose water fluoridation have urged the Iowa City Council to rethink the practice because of health and cost concerns. The council agreed earlier this year to examine the issue and will discuss water fluoridation at its work session at 6:30 p.m. Monday at City Hall.
