Deadly Chemo-Drug Costs 4,000x More Than Gold

One of the oldest marketing tricks in the book is to dramatically overprice something in order to increase its perceived value. Ironically, the less intrinsic value the commodity holds, the more effective such a tactic can be. This could explain what’s going on with one of the highest priced and most useless chemotherapy drugs on the market today.

The chemotherapy agent is known as ipilimumab (trade name YERVOY®), and costs about $120,000 for a full course of treatment. While the manufacturer advertises YERVOY® as providing tangible hope to those with non-resectable or metastatic melanoma, it also boldly warns on its website that the effects of this drug can be quite deadly:

The Myth of Authority

18th June 2016

By Ryan Cristian

Guest writer for Wake Up World

People should not be afraid of their governments; governments should be afraid of their people.

Contrary to what many people assume, most of the suffering, injustice and conflict in the world is not the result of greed, hatred or intolerance. Instead… Most of man’s inhumanity to man is the result of one particular belief; one irrational superstition which is shared by almost everyone, namely, the belief in authority.

History has taught us that trying to fix the world by way of government always ends in disaster. That in the end the political process empowers the ruling class and no one else. Constitutions don’t fix it. Elections don’t fix it.

Humans Crave Connection: Why Loneliness is Dangerous to Health

18th June 2016

By Razi Berry

Humans are social animals. We naturally bond and pair as couples in partnerships and marriage. We live together as families and tribes, and we gather as communities. No doubt this is a manifestation of our spiritual selves which are never alone. This concept has many forms of dress. We call it our connection to God, or with our higher Self, or our oneness with Nature. In some religious traditions, we are all spiritual children of the Creator, or the Great Spirit. In others, as in Kabbalistic traditions, we originate from sparks of one light.

This tradition offers a beautiful illustration of how we are connected to one Source. It tells of a Godhead, an infinite, all permeating light with no beginning or end that filled the entire universe with no empty space. Out of a divine will, the Infinite, contracted Itself unto Itself to create a space where there was only fullness. Ten vessels (Sefirot) were then formed to hold this light. These vessels are said to be filled with the light of ten attributes of how God reveals himself to us, and to Himself. The attributes are:

Antibiotics and Intestinal Health: Balancing Our Internal Ecosystem

17th June 2016

The discovery of penicillin in 1928 is considered one of the most important developments in the history of modern medicine. Since their inception antibiotics have without a doubt saved many lives by helping people to overcome serious infections. However, today according to health authorities they are being overprescribed, with estimates ranging from 20% to 50% being deemed as inappropriate. This is a worrying trend because the overuse of antibiotics for non-life threatening conditions, and their use as growth promoters for conventionally farmed livestock, has contributed greatly to gut dysbiosis (microbial imbalance that detrimentally impacts on normal bodily function), pathogen colonization of the gut, pathogen evolution, and the downward spiral of general human health in ways that are as yet not fully understood.

How a “No-Till” Method Can Grow Vegetable and Fruit Gardens Without Irrigation, Fertilizer or Grueling Labor

17th June 2016

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Food self-sufficiency is a hot topic in the U.S. and beyond as our industrial agricultural system begins to crumble, poisonous conventional farming methods are brought to light and the crisis of our depleted topsoil looms ominously. In response to these threats, homesteading and community gardens are on the rise across the nation as people take control of both the quality and cost of their food. It’s a modern spin on the classic Victory Gardens of the past.

And yet, for anyone who has tilled, weeded and prepared their little patch of vegetable paradise, one aspect quickly becomes clear: growing your own food is work. Of the back-breaking kind. Truth be told, there’s quite a bit of maintenance involved once your green darlings begin to grow — insect and weed control, fertilizing to encourage healthy plants. I’ve also found that, unless you begin your plants from seed, growing your own food can be an expensive venture.

But what if we had a system in place that mimicked nature to such a degree that irrigation, fertilizer, farming equipment and hard labor were rendered obsolete? Where we could enjoy the most nutrient dense, succulent and flavorful produce for pennies on the dollar with minimal effort? This vision isn’t a pipe dream — it’s here now and simple to learn.

Beauty and Fashion ‘Gurus’ – Promoting Consumerism is Harming Our World

16th June 2016

By Sabrina Milazzo

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Let me be honest with you: Something that has been ‘going on’ online, has been bugging me to-the-extreme for quite a while now. I’m not one of those people who has a habit of commenting negatively on blog posts and videos in order to have my say and feel better about myself. No, I’m normally one of those who choose not to speak up and get on with my day.

But a little while back I watched a documentary that hit a raw nerve, and I cannot be silent any longer. What has me so riled up? I’m talking about YouTubes’ so-called ‘beauty and fashion gurus’, their mindless behavior, and the garbage they’re putting out there for the world to see…

How the War on Drugs Has Caused More Harm Than Good

16th June 2016

By Dr. Joseph Mercola

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Prescriptions for opioids have risen by 300 percent over the past 10 years — a trend that has fueled, if not created a whole new heroin epidemic.[1] Americans use the most opioids of any nation — twice the amount used by Canadians, who come in second place in terms of prescriptions.

So many Americans are on opioids, there’s now a huge market for drugs to treat opioid-induced constipation (OIC). A major TV spot for OIC even ran during the televising of the 2016 Super Bowl.[2]

Meanwhile, the war on (illicit) drugs, which exacts particularly harsh punishment for minor marijuana offenses, has proven itself a miserable failure that actually contributes to the current drug abuse epidemic.

Orlando Mass Shooting: A False Flag Attack?

15th June 2016

By Makia Freeman

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Was the recent mass shooting at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, a false flag attack? Early signs indicate so…

False flag attacks happen in the US with a certain and predictable regularity. It has been 6 months since the last major false flag attack on US soil (San Bernardino), interspersed with one in Europe (Brussels). In recent years, the NWO manipulators throw a false flag operation into the mix every so often for numerous reasons. A first is to ensure the public doesn’t forget about being scared of being attacked anywhere at any time in their home towns. A second is to ensure the public doesn’t forget to continue being afraid of the bogeyman du jour (in this case ISIS or Islamic terrorism, better named Zio-Islamic terrorism in deference to the real force [Zionism] behind it). A third is to target different places (schools, movie theaters, nightclubs, etc.) and different segments (gays, teachers, etc.) in and of society, so that everyone starts to feel personally threatened by the specter of a mass shooting or bombing, because they identify more with that type of place or segment. A fourth is gun control: the continuing agenda which has been greatly accelerated under Obama for the US to override the 2nd Amendment, forbid gun ownership and bring US laws into “harmonization” with those of the Rockefeller-influenced UN. A fifth is distraction: the NWO social engineers time these events to keep other important topics out of the news (such as the ongoing and nefarious efforts to pass the TPP, TTIP, TISA, CETA and other giant “free-trade” agreements to further enslave the average citizen). There are other reasons, but that’s a brief summary.

With all that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the specifics of the Orlando mass shooting case. Here are some salient points indicating that the Orlando mass shooting may be a false flag operation:

Collective Awareness and Spiritual Evolution – Why a Rewrite of History is Needed

15th June 2016

By Peter Van Els

Guest writer for Wake Up World

An evolved future for mankind will only be possible if wise men would rewrite history, based upon newfound truths. Otherwise history keeps repeating itself, because mankind did not or will not learn from its recidivist mistakes.

True change is achieved with the realization that history is/was written by the victor, or the ones who hold on to a position of power, and the realization that history is twisted and biased. Every holy book has been manipulated, kept secret (i.e. the women’s status in holy books) to control the people.

There is no truth in lies and human beings are still lost, still roaming, being blind in the land of the blind. Large and ancient, cultivated civilizations like the Inca’s, the Aztecs, the Greek, the Romans, Spain and France’s world empires, these rich cultures were frequently destroyed by delusions of grandeur. As in the Renaissance en the enlightenment period thereafter, which was a very clarifying period where there was a latency to want to change in favor of the human race and for the inner well being of the latter.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Turmeric – Nature’s Powerhouse of Wellbeing

15th June 2016

By Katrin Geist

If there has ever been one plant that “does it all”, turmeric (Curcuma longa), seems the perfect candidate. Its many health benefits and applications fill entire libraries: a search for “turmeric” on Web of Science returned 6.681 hits, and a search for “curcumin”, turmeric’s best known constituent, yielded a whopping 28.122 papers. At point of writing, the Cochrane Library holds 94 publications of controlled clinical trials involving turmeric: whoever says that knowledge of its health benefits is ficticious or anecdotal at best, has accomplished a high degree of ignorance. Even more so since turmeric has been used for culinary and medicinal purposes in Asia for over 6000 years (Hutchins-Wolfbrandt & Mistry 2011) – Western science today only confirms what people have naturally known and practiced for millennia (Goel et al. 2008). In the past two decades, turmeric and curcumin have been extensively studied for their therapeutic benefits as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective, renoprotective, immunomodulatory, cancer chemopreventive, antidepressant, and neuroprotective agent (Pakfetrat et al. 2014, Chuengsamarn et al. 2012).
