The MRI scans revealed that when observing animal or human suffering, the “empathy-related” areas of the brain are more active among vegetarians and vegans. The researchers also found that there are certain brain areas that only vegans and vegetarians seem to activate when witnessing suffering. So, could it be that your deer-hunting cousin or that woman at the store with the fur-trimmed jacket is just not smart enough to see that animals feel pain every bit as acutely, love their young every bit as deeply and long for freedom every bit as intensely as we do?
Maybe. But I like to think that such people just haven’t been given the tools they need to make a compassionate choice. As celebrated astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson says, perhaps “part of our formal education should be training in empathy. Imagine how different the world would be if, in fact, it were ‘reading, writing, arithmetic, empathy.”’
Gene Baur is the president and co-founder of Farm Sanctuary, an organization whose mission is to promote compassionate living through the rescue of farm animals, education and advocacy. A vegan since 1985, Baur has been called “the conscience of the food movement.
“Farm animals, like all animals, have feelings,” Baur says. “They have complex cognitive abilities… and they deserve to be treated with respect and compassion.”
Jewish folklore defines Lilith as the first wife of Adam, made of dust exactly as Adam was. When she refused to be submissive to him, she was banished from the Garden of Eden, and Adam was give Eve, who was created from his rib to guarantee obedience to Adam’s will. When she was cast out of the Garden of Eden, Lilith took up residence in a cave, where she set up her favorite belongings, most particularly a mirror that she proudly displayed ...
The intranasal route of exposure makes spraying of massive amounts of nanoaluminum into the skies especially hazardous, as it will be inhaled by people of all ages, including babies and small children for many hours. We know that older people have the greatest reaction to this airborne aluminum.
Because of the nanosizing of the aluminum particles being used, home filtering system will not remove the aluminum, thus prolonging exposure, even indoors.
In addition to inhaling nanoaluminum, such spraying will saturate the ground, water and vegetation with high levels of aluminum. Normally, aluminum is poorly absorbed from the GI tract, but nanoaluminum is absorbed in much higher amounts. This absorbed aluminum has been shown to be distributed to a number of organs and tissues including the brain and spinal cord.
Inhaling this environmentally suspended nanoaluminum will also produce tremendous inflammatory reaction within the lungs, which will pose a significant hazard to children and adults with asthma and pulmonary diseases.
"The idea that putting noxious substances under the skin will prevent disease is based on a false premise, the premise that cowpox prevented smallpox. Despite the huge volume of contrary evidence, this myth is still believed."
"The growing numbers of parents with vaccine-damaged children are the only ones likely to alter the current state of affairs. As consumers they can exert their power and refuse the product and thus allow the practice to abandon the vaccine makers."
I believe it is time for a HONEST re-assessment of the effects, both good and bad, of vaccination. Let's look at all the data in a new unit of time, freshly, acknowledging the (possible) damage vaccines are doing, and assessing the ratio of positive and negative effects.
Why does such a course of action seem to be the last thing modern medicine would undertake?
A grand illusion is accepted because people can’t believe Reality is fundamentally different than it appears to be.
"Even when people are able to accept the truth, they tend toward silence. They don’t pass the truth on."
"Retired propaganda master, Ellis Medavoy, whom I interview in THE MATRIX REVEALED, once explained it to me this way:"
“You’ve taken them out of a state of hypnosis, a state of trance, but the truth you’re giving them puts them in another trance. In that part of their mind where they’ve been asleep for so long, they’re used to that narcosis. So even though they see truth now, they respond with new sleep. It’s not really an awakening at all. It’s as if they’ve walked out of one war zone into another, dazed.”
The researchers seemed determined to prove that the nurses’ lack of trust in vaccines was based primarily on the H1N1 (swine flu) fiasco just a year earlier. They stated:
"A major theme that emerged from our qualitative data was the feeling of mistrust the nurses expressed towards the health authorities. … This mistrust is similar to the mistrust described by the antivaccinationists."
Notice the negative tone. The researchers had no interest in considering whether the role played by nurses as the primary contacts with patients might give them a valuable perspective on the issue.
Do they really believe that the nurses don’t know what they’re speaking about?
Children can learn so many valuable lessons by caring for a pet.
Having pets also teaches children that animals are not expendable items. If children are involved in the daily care of animals, it can help to make them a more compassionate person later in life. Over the years I have been able to follow kids who first owned pets in elementary school as they grow up through high school, and I have seen them grow up to be compassionate young adults.
On the other hand, kids that don’t get the experience of having a pet early may become afraid of animals, especially if their parents don’t particularly care for animals. But even parents who aren’t crazy about pets or did not own them as kids can help change this trend.
Your inner voice is not a personal one, but is instead your private connection to the Divine Spirit we all share. It is available to guide you at all times. To connect to its wisdom, simply focus on your heart and listen.
The greatest obstacle to experiencing enlightenment is identification with your mind, which causes thought to become compulsive. Not being able to stop thinking is a dreadful affliction, but we don’t realize this because almost everybody is suffering from it, so it is considered normal. This incessant mental noise prevents you from finding that realm of inner stillness that is inseparable from Being. It also creates a false mind-made self that casts a shadow of fear and suffering.
The Cochrane reviews are supposed to be the last word in evidence-based medicine. They are reviews of previous clinical trials, hand picked for their "relevance" by the reviewers themselves.
The 100 trillion (Zimbabwe) Dollars prize is being offered in a tongue-in-cheek way to anyone who can prove how
1. non-random selection of the "best" data can be achieved without censorship, without bias, and without having determined the answer in advance and
2. how the results of significant large-scale clinical studies can be applied validly to specify treatment for an individual.
The initiators of the action also suggest that, until those points have been properly proven, reviews of medical studies be issued with the following warning:
"CAUTION: This review is a selective interpretation of the available data and incorporates the bias and prejudice of the reviewers. The effects it describes are only valid as aggregate statistics of large groups and should not be used by doctors or members of the public for making decisions about individuals."
The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) today issued a position paper on “Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Fields Effect on Human Health”, including wireless technologies and smart meters.
In its new report, AAEM is calling for:
1. An immediate caution on Smart Meter installation due to potentially harmful RF exposure.
2. Accommodation for health considerations regarding EMF and RF exposure, including exposure to wireless Smart Meter technology.
3. Independent studies to further understand the health effects from EMF and RF exposure.
4. Recognition that electromagnetic hypersensitivity is a growing problem worldwide.
5. Understanding and control of this electrical environmental bombardment for the protection of society.
6. Consideration and independent research regarding the quantum effects of EMF and RF on human health.
7. Use of safer technology, including for Smart Meters, such as hard-wiring, fiber optics or other non-harmful methods of data transmission.
Some of today’s vaccines are cultivated on cell lines from aborted human fetuses.
This itself promotes ethical questions, which is further reinforced by the fact that few people have knowledge of this fact. Few parents are aware of this when they vaccinate their children, and it is unlikely that the topic is well-known among health professionals.
It is reasonable to think that some people based on ethical education and religious reasons will be uncomfortable about this fact. One can question whether this issue is controversial to such a degree that it would be prudent to disclose the circumstances to the patients – in this respect their parents.
(My comment:) Apart from the obvious ethical and religious implications, there are also serious possible health consequences. such as auto-immune reactions and the recombination of DNA from those cell lines with the DNA of the vaccinated.
(from the vaccinequestions article:) “How could the contaminating aborted fetal DNA create problems? It creates the potential for autoimmune responses and/or inappropriate insertion into our own genomes through a process called recombination. There are groups researching the potential link between this DNA and autoimmune diseases such as juvenile (type I) diabetes, multiple sclerosis and lupus. Our organization,  Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute (SCPI), is focused on studying the quantity, characteristics and genomic recombination of the aborted fetal DNA found in many of our vaccines.”
