Can Water Cure Disease?

Can Water Cure Disease? | Health Supreme |

Can water cure disease?


Throughout history and across all cultures, there are stories of water that can heal. We have identified a possible basis.


Through a decade of research at the University of Washington, we have uncovered evidence for a fourth phase of water, beyond the commonly known solid, liquid, and vapor. This fourth phase could be the root of water’s purported healing properties.


Many drinking waters contain some fourth-phase water. Those with the most may produce the most health benefits. Testing this hypothesis constitutes a major thrust of this scientific effort. We will evaluate the benefits of pure fourth-phase water (produced by the filterless filter), as well as various other waters deemed likely to have health benefits.


Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

We are seeing some mainstream scientific research here that has the potential of reducing our dependency on pharmaceutical (chemical) medicine.


Something that's well worth supporting, I would say.

If you want to dig deeper, there is a series of videos on a presentation Pollack gave at the Electric Universe conference about his discovery of electrically structured water... ;

Fourth state of water, and a few months ago I posted a scientific demonstration on water having memory. In Ayurved, there is a line of treatment called 'hydro-therapy." In Sanskrit it is called "USHA PAANA CHIKITSA" and is known as powerful remedy for restoring health.

Consumer Self-Defense: 12 Ways to Drive GMOs and Roundup off the Market

Consumer Self-Defense: 12 Ways to Drive GMOs and Roundup off the Market | Health Supreme |

Monsanto and the genetic engineering lobby have incessantly proclaimed, with little or no evidence whatsoever, that these controversial crops and foods will reduce pesticide use, eliminate world hunger, cure disease, mitigate climate change and vastly improve public health.

However, a close look at their actual business practices, sales figures, political lobbying and bullying in court (suing hundreds of farmers for the “crime” of saving seeds) reveal Monsanto’s true goals: to monopolize the global market for seeds, foods and fiber, and to sell as many toxic herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides as possible.

An increasing number of scientists and consumer advocates warn that current gene-splicing techniques are crude, inexact and unpredictable, and that the toxic chemicals, especially Monsanto’s Roundup, sprayed on these genetically engineered seeds and plants are incredibly dangerous.

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

It's not that we want labels for GMOs for the sake of labels...  

 "Certainly we want mandatory labeling of GMOs at the state level (the feds are obviously too corrupt to trust on GMO labeling). But the main reason we want labeling is to defend ourselves, our families and the environment from further assault—by boycotting and driving GMO food, animal feed (most GMOs go into animal feed and biofuels, not human food), and Roundup off the market."

Russell Roberts's curator insight, January 23, 11:44 PM

Thanks to reporter Wes Thomas for this basic tutorial on the dangers of GMOs (genetically modified organisms).  Among the ways to stop the use of GMOs:

Ask Congress to stop pro GMO measures.

Require mandatory labeling of all GMO foods.

Encourage GMO bans on a local and county level.

Adopt a massive education campaign to inform the public on the dangers of GMOs.

Aloha, Russ.

Why are so Many Healthy People Dying from the Flu After Receiving the Flu Shot?

Why are so Many Healthy People Dying from the Flu After Receiving the Flu Shot? | Health Supreme |
Another flu death of an otherwise healthy person after receiving the flu vaccine has been reported in Wisconsin.

WISN in Wisconsin is reporting that 26-year-old Katherine McQuestion has died from flu complications, after she received the flu shot. Katherine was reportedly a newlywed, and was required to receive the flu shot as part of her employment. She was a radiology technician and worked at St. Catherine's Medical Center in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin according to WISN.

McQuestion’s mother said her daughter was healthy, beautiful and smart. She married in September, and her funeral was held on Tuesday.

A health official interviewed by WISN stated that this is “rare”, and that everyone should get their flu shot.

A review of the quarterly reports issued by the Department of Justice showing cases in which the government has paid out damages for vaccine injuries and deaths clearly shows that the majority of cases are awarded to flu vaccine victims.

You can read the most recent report from December 2014 in which the government paid out damages to 80 people who were injured or killed by the flu vaccine: Government Pays Compensation to 80 Flu Vaccine Injuries and Deaths.

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

Italy withdrew the flu vaccine some months ago because of several deaths after vaccination. Apparently the vaccine is still being pushed in the US, although now, reports of deaths after flu vaccination start to accumulate...

EuroParl votes in new era of GMO farming

EuroParl votes in new era of GMO farming | Health Supreme |
Following a disgraceful EU stitch-up, the European Parliament today passed a law permitting EU-wide GMO crop cultivation. With regulation and safeguards devolved to member states, and only limited 'opt-out' rights, it is a recipe for chaos that GM corporations will ruthlessly exploit.

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

It was bound to happen... the EU bureaucracy, including what laughingly passes for a parliament,  just can't find a way to justify doing what most Europeans want - keep GMOs out of our fields and off our plates. International food industry including Big Ag are formidable players and governments bend to them.

Arun Shrivastava's curator insight, January 15, 1:59 AM

EU approves GMOs, leaves decisions to implement to individual countries. England is going GMO while Wales and Scotland will remain GMO free. Note that Indian Basmati rice was recently rejected by EU on grounds of contamination. Is this double standard? Or is there something more sinister going on?

Study Suggests Wi-Fi Exposure More Dangerous To Kids Than Previously Thought

Study Suggests Wi-Fi Exposure More Dangerous To Kids Than Previously Thought | Health Supreme |

Wi-Fi and cellular devices, and their associated electromagnetic fields, are everywhere these days. Even if we want to, we can’t eliminate our exposure to electromagnetic radiation.

But, a new study suggests that we may need to limit our children's exposure, when possible. The report, published in the Journal of Microscopy and Ultrastructure is titled “Why children absorb more microwave radiation than adults: The consequences.” 

From an analysis of others studies, the authors argue that children and adolescents are at considerable risk from devices that radiate microwaves (and that adults are at a lower, but still significant, risk).  The following points were offered:

  • Children absorb a greater amount of microwave radiation than adults.
  • Fetuses are even more vulnerable than children.  Therefore pregnant women should avoid exposing their fetus to microwave radiation.
  • Adolescent girls and women should not place cellphones in their bras or in hijabs (headscarf).
  • Cellphone manual warnings make clear an overexposure problem exists.
  • Government warnings have been issued but most of the public are unaware of such warnings.
  • Current exposure limits are inadequate and should be revised.
  • Wireless devices are radio transmitters, not toys.  Selling toys that use them should be monitored more closely.

Sleeping pills increase risk of death, study suggests

Sleeping pills increase risk of death, study suggests | Health Supreme |

Doctors call for rethink after large study finds prescribed pills could be associated with up to half a million extra deaths a year in US.

Doctors are calling for a rethink of the use of sleeping pills after a large study showed that the drugs carry a substantially increased risk of death for those who are prescribed them.

Commonly used sleeping pills, or "hypnotics", such as temazepam and zolpidem, which is prescribed for short-term insomnia, are associated with more than a fourfold risk of death, according to the study published in the BMJ Open journal.

The study was carried out in the US, where up to 10% of the adult population took sleeping pills in 2010. The authors estimate that sleeping pills may have been associated with 320,000 to 507,000 extra deaths in the US that year.

Coca-Cola Facing Major Financial Challenges As Sales Steadily Decline | Health Supreme |

In recent years, consumers have been slowly cutting back on things like soda, junk food, and GMOs, in favor of a more healthy diet.

Companies like Monsanto are losing millions as a result, and are struggling to maintain the long-term stability of their businesses.

Very soon, these businesses may be forced to either change with market demand, or risk bankruptcy.

Stop America's testing of viruses in Africa and use free Ozone Gas to combat Ebola - petition at

Stop America's testing of viruses in Africa and use free Ozone Gas to combat Ebola - petition at | Health Supreme |

Since 1989, to counteract bio-terrorism, the U.S. has been testing live viruses including Ebola, Lasser Fever, at designated sites in Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Monrovia.During World War II, Anthrax was tested on an uninhabited island off Scotland where human lives would not be in jeopardy.

Now that Ebola has been spreading, these test labs in Africa should be forced to close with full accountability of their activities documented.

In addition, free Ozone Gas therapy should be used IMMEDIATELY to combat Ebola. Ozone is 99% effective against viruses and is FREE.

Research and Development, Clinical trials for an Ebola vaccine are not needed. Vaccinating will put more people at risk of disease while pharmaceutical companies stand to make billions of dollars at the expense of human lives.

Want to double world food production? Return the land to small farmers!

Want to double world food production? Return the land to small farmers! | Health Supreme |

All over the world, small farmers are being forced off their land to make way for corporate agriculture, writes GRAIN - and it's justified by the need to 'feed the world'.

But it's the small farmers that are the most productive, and the more their land is grabbed, the more global hunger increases. We must give them their land back! 

A recent comprehensive survey by GRAIN, examining data from around the world, finds that while small farmers feed the world, they are doing so with just 24% of the world's farmland - or 17% if you leave out China and India. 

If the yields achieved by Kenya's small farmers were matched by the country's large-scale operations, the country's agricultural output would double. In Central America, the region's food production would triple. If Russia's big farms were as productive as its small ones, output would increase by a factor of six...

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

If we broke up the mega farm operations and parcelled out the land to small farmers all over the world, hunger would soon be a thing of the past.

Oops, we forgot to study that

Oops, we forgot to study that | Health Supreme |

Ractopamine isn’t new to livestock farming in the U.S. The FDA first approved the drug for commercially raised pigs in 1999, and later permitted its use for cattle and turkeys. The drug mimics stress hormones, causing animals to gain lean muscle weight rather than fat in the final weeks before slaughter.

In July 2012, the Codex Alimentarius Commission, the foodstandards body for the United Nations, narrowly voted to adopt a limit for ractopamine residues found in meat products — the vote was 69 to 67. The vote marks a huge trade victory for meat-exporting countries that use ractopamine, such as the U.S. With a global standard set by the U.N., the World Health Organization is now poised to rule against countries with zero tolerance policies.

Consumers International, which represents 220 consumer organizations in 110 countries, has observer status at Codex meetings. CI representative Michael Hansen told Bottlemiller that with this vote, some international organizations worry that the Codex is becoming “another politicized global body, rather than the science-based consensus body it has managed to be so far.”

“In the past, Codex has avoided adopting standards where scientists disagree, or where the scientific data is lacking or insufficient,” Hansen said in a statement to Bottemiller. “We now see a situation where trade concerns are trumping science. This does not bode well for the credibility of Codex standards in the future.”

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

Animals are given ractopamine drugs to make their meat "more lean". Human health implications have not been studied, nor has impact on the environment or on the animals themselves...

The Most Popular Drug in America Is an Antipsychotic and No One Really Knows How It Works

The Most Popular Drug in America Is an Antipsychotic and No One Really Knows How It Works | Health Supreme |

The pharmaceutical industry has flooded America with antipsychotics.

Thorazine and similar drugs became close to obsolete in 1993 when a second generation of antipsychotics which included Risperdal, Zyprexa, Seroquel, Geodon and Abilify came online.
Called "atypical" antipsychotics, the drugs seemed to have fewer side effects than their predecessors like dry mouth, constipation and the stigmatizing and permanent facial tics known as TD or tardive dyskinesia. (In actuality, they were similar.)
More importantly, the drugs were obscenely expensive: 100 tablets of Seroquel cost as much as $2,000, Zyprexa, $1,680 and Abilify $1,644.
One drug that is a close cousin of Thorazine, Abilify, is currently the top-selling of all prescription drugs in the U.S. marketed as a supplement to antidepressant drugs, reports the Daily Beast
Not only is it amazing that an antipsychotic is outselling all other drugs, no one even knows how it works to relieve depression, writes Jay Michaelson.

‘A mass sterilization exercise’? - Kenyan doctors find anti-fertility agent in UN tetanus vaccine

‘A mass sterilization exercise’? - Kenyan doctors find anti-fertility agent in UN tetanus vaccine | Health Supreme |

'This WHO campaign is not about eradicating neonatal tetanus but a well-coordinated forceful population control mass sterilization exercise using a proven fertility regulating vaccine.'

Kenya’s Catholic bishops are charging two United Nations organizations with sterilizing millions of girls and women under cover of an anti-tetanus inoculation program sponsored by the Kenyan government.

According to a statement released Tuesday by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, the organization has found an antigen that causes miscarriages in a vaccine being administered to 2.3 million girls and women by the World Health Organization and UNICEF.

Priests throughout Kenya reportedly are advising their congregations to refuse the vaccine.

Was the Ebola virus ever purified and isolated from a human?

Here is what Rasnick wrote, after his search of the published literature: 

“I have examined in detail the literature on isolation and Ems [EM: electron microscope pictures] of both Ebola and Marburg viruses. I have not found any convincing evidence that Ebola virus (and for that matter Marburg) has been isolated from humans. There is certainly no confirmatory evidence of human isolation. 

“I searched the CDC’s website and came up dry. 

“The CDC claims 7728 Ebola virus cases have been ‘laboratory-confirmed’. 

“I asked the CDC what constitutes isolation of Ebola virus from human specimens. I also asked for the protocol for isolating Ebola virus. [No reply from the CDC as of this date.]

Team publishes evidence for natural alternative to antibiotic use in livestock

Team publishes evidence for natural alternative to antibiotic use in livestock | Health Supreme |
Today the leading journal PLOS ONE published research that provides underlying scientific support for a fundamentally new type of natural alternative to the use of antibiotics in livestock feeds for growth promotion and disease prevention.

The discovery that the product formed by full, spontaneous oxidation of beta-carotene, termed OxC-Beta, can beneficially support immune function comes at a time when stakeholders across the globe, including national health regulators, are looking to avoid usage of antibiotics in livestock due to concerns they pose threats to public health.

In-feed trials of OxC-beta appear to be gaining attention from the livestock industry due to emerging evidence that this natural product may be a safe, effective and affordable alternative to antibiotics.

How to Outwit the Global Domination Plans of Agribusiness - expose their great lie: "we need to feed the world"

How to Outwit the Global Domination Plans of Agribusiness - expose their great lie: "we need to feed the world" | Health Supreme |
The strategic centerpiece of Monsanto PR is to focus on the promotion of one single compelling idea. The idea that they want you to believe in is that only they can produce enough for the future population.

They wish you to therefore believe that non-industrial systems of farming, such as all those which use agroecological methods, or SRI, or are localised and family-oriented, or which use organic methods, or non-GMO seeds, cannot feed the world.

What industry understands, and the food movement does not, is that what prevents total rejection of bland, industrialised, pesticide-laden, GMO food is the standard acceptance, especially in Western countries, of the overarching agribusiness argument that such food is necessary. It is necessary to feed the world.

So, if the food movement could show that famine is an empty threat then it would also have shown, by clear implication, that the chemical health risks and the ecological devastation that these technologies represent are what is unnecessary.

The movement would have shown that pesticides and GMOs exist solely to extract profit from the food chain. 

They have no other purpose

Genetically Modifying Humans Via Antibiotics? Something You Need To Know

Genetically Modifying Humans Via Antibiotics? Something You Need To Know | Health Supreme |

A new kind of antibiotic has been developed by researchers at Oregon State University. 

The new antibiotics are called PPMOs, which stand for peptide-conjugated phosphorodiamidate morpholino oligomers.  They are “a synthetic analog of DNA or RNA that has the ability to silence the expression of specific genes.”

The way that PPMO antibiotics will work is to, “specifically target the underlying genes of a bacterium.”  In plain English, PPMOs will genetically modify bacteria.

One of many things to consider is that mitochondria, the energy centers of our cells, are very similar in structure and design to bacteria.

Could PPMOs (or other drugs that genetically modify bacteria) modify human mitochondria?  If so, what are the consequences of having genetically modified mitochondria? 

One consequence is that humans truly would be genetically modified.  Perhaps that should be taken into consideration before developing drugs that genetically modify bacteria.

You need to read this article before taking antibiotics the next time... make sure they are not the DNA-modifying types the author describes.

je suis Food Business Operator... there's no freedom of speech for food and its possible health effects in Europe

je suis Food Business Operator... there's no freedom of speech for food and its possible health effects in Europe | Health Supreme |

On Sunday, millions of French protesters took the streets, insisting that freedom, especially the freedom of expression and the freedom to communicate, are part and parcel of our Western civilization.

In the European Union, the business operators who, every single day, year in year out, tirelessly bring food to the millions of Charlies and their leaders must do without that treasured freedom of speech. Their speech is prohibited before they say a word.

Their right to communicate freely was taken from them not because of what they said or intended to say, but because of what they are. They were Charlie long before everyone was Charlie.

Here is what the European legislators have to say about the freedom of speech when it comes to food business operators: 

“Health claims shall be prohibited unless they comply with the general requirements in Chapter II and the specific requirements in this Chapter and are authorised in accordance with this Regulation and included in the lists of authorised claims ...”

Dr. Andrew Moulden: Every Vaccine Produces Harm | Health Supreme |

Canadian physician Dr. Andrew Moulden provided clear scientific evidence to prove that every dose of vaccine given to a child or an adult produces harm.

The truth that he uncovered was rejected by the conventional medical system and the pharmaceutical industry. Nevertheless, his warning and his message to America remains as a solid legacy of the man who stood up against big pharma and their program to vaccinate every person on the Earth.

Dr. Moulden died unexpectedly in November of 2013 at age 49.

Dr. Moulden stated:

What we have done to each other [with vaccines] has produced the most profound damage to humankind by humankind in the history of humanity.

And the reason why we got here is partly because of:

  1. Our arrogance in thinking that we know everything. In physiology and medicine we do not know everything!
  2. [Our greed] to advance our own self-interest to make money, to sell products and to advance corporate alliances. Commercialization has overtaken the fundamental human value ...

U.S. is Responsible for the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa: Liberian Scientist

U.S. is Responsible for the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa: Liberian Scientist | Health Supreme |

Dr. Cyril Broderick, A Liberian scientist and a former professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Liberia’s College of Agriculture and Forestry says the West, particularly the U.S. is responsible for the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

Dr. Broderick claims the following in an exclusive article published in the Daily Observer based in Monrovia, Liberia. He wrote the following:

The US Department of Defense (DoD) is funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone.

The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research.

This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March.
