Forgotten Knowledge: Natural Skin Care for Your Baby

By Marie Be

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

The largest organ of the body, the skin, begins its complex process of development about a week after conception, and continues to evolve throughout pregnancy and following birth. Proper skin care during the first year of an infant can positively affect the full term development of the skin, as well as enhance a child’s overall developmental health. Sadly, with the propaganda from the cosmetic industry, we’ve lost fundamental knowledge on how to properly take care of the skin of a baby.

Many baby products have been associated with systemic toxicity. This is in part due to the fact that the cosmetic industry created the misconception that the skin is impervious, and regulations misleadingly classify skin care products as ‘external’ products (1) – ignoring the effects of dermal chemical absorption. Baby products do not escape this lack of safety and therefore contain a smogboard of toxic chemicals.

The Dirty War On Syria

By Dr. Tim Anderson

Although every war makes ample use of lies and deception, the dirty war on Syria has relied on a level of mass disinformation not seen in living memory. The British-Australian journalist Philip Knightley pointed out that war propaganda typically involves ‘a depressingly predictable pattern’ of demonising the enemy leader, then demonising the enemy people through atrocity stories, real or imagined (Knightley 2001). Accordingly, a mild-mannered eye doctor called Bashar al Assad became the new evil in the world and, according to consistent western media reports, the Syrian Army did nothing but kill civilians for more than four years.

To this day, many imagine the Syrian conflict is a ‘civil war’, a ‘popular revolt’ or some sort of internal sectarian conflict. These myths are, in many respects, a substantial achievement for the big powers which have driven a series of ‘regime change’ operations in the Middle East region, all on false pretexts, over the past 15 years.

The Eco-Modernist Manifesto: a Program of Genocide and Ecocide

By Derrick Jensen BSc.

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

The idea that anthropocene — the human alteration of natural ecosystems — can be good or even great, as promised in the recently released Ecomodernist Manifesto, is purely delusional. Worse, it underlies a narrative in which the wholesale destruction of nature and of sustainable indigenous societies is repackaged as a noble mission — one whose ultimate purpose is the complete alienation of humans from the planet that spawned us.

Robert Jay Lifton noted that before you can commit any mass atrocity, you must convince yourself and others that what you’re doing is not atrocious, but rather beneficial. You must have what he called a “claim to virtue”. Thus the Nazis weren’t, from their perspective, committing mass murder and genocide, but were ‘purifying the Aryan Race’. They weren’t waging aggressive war but gaining necessary Lebensraum (territory). The United States has never committed genocide, but rather has fulfilled its Manifest Destiny. It has never waged aggressive war, but rather has ‘defended its national interest’ and ‘promoted freedom and democracy’.

Today, the dominant culture isn’t killing the planet, but rather ‘developing natural resources’.

Synchrony and Creativity – How You Can Effortlessly Create Terrific Ideas

By Tomasz Kopec, MD

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

I am sure everyone has had an ‘aha’ moment. It is when something becomes obvious and we know this is the best way forward or the best solution to a problem. These moments often happen suddenly when we do not expect them. For example, when we drive, walk, shower and daydream not thinking about anything in particular.

On the other hand, many people say that the harder they try the less likely they come up with a new, fresh idea. Say, in a meeting at work when you want to impress others and suggest something particularly clever, and you just can’t.

In this article I will explain you what creativity really is, how it works in the brain, and how you can let it happen to you.

The Conspiracy of War — Power, Profit, Propaganda and Imperialism

By Ethan Indigo Smith

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

“Since armies are legal, we feel that war is acceptable; in general, nobody feels that war is criminal or that accepting it is criminal attitude. In fact, we have been brainwashed…War and the large military establishments are the greatest sources of violence in the world. Whether their purpose is defensive or offensive, these vast powerful organizations exist solely to kill human beings… We should all be horrified… but we are too confused.” (source)

Power, Profit, Propaganda and Imperialism 

With all the wisdom and knowledge we have access to, I simply cannot believe that the governments of the world are once again positioning our armed forces in a war stance. I cannot believe that individuals are allowing it, and even pushing for it, and volunteering to take part in its violent uselessness. It’s as if there has been a breakout of some terrible disease that wrings out moral essences, removes our impetus for self-preservation and instills a self-destructive hatred of one’s fellow man. There is no sound logic to war, unless there is something more we are not being told…

Exceptional Botanical Kills 98% of Cancer Cells in Under 24 Hours

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

The same herb frequently eaten as salad in Asia has been shown to destroy cancer cells — without harming healthy tissue. Researchers at the University of Washington have created a compound based on traditional Chinese medicine that is 1,200 times more effective in killing malignant cells than chemotherapy drugs. Combined with iron, the herb selectively targets cancerous cells and has proven to be a powerful tool in combating the disease. Tomikazu Sasaki, senior author of the study and chemistry professor at the University of Washington, describes the compound as “… a special agent planting a bomb inside the [cancer] cell.”

Since traditional chemotherapy is rife with severe side-effects and kills healthy cells, researchers are encouraged by the findings. Standard chemotherapy destroys as many as 1 normal cell for every 5 cancer cells. The compound developed by Sasaki and his team is far more specific, killing 12,000 cancer cells for each healthy cell affected, which minimizes adverse side-effects. Because of this, the effectiveness of the treatment is increased as higher doses can be tolerated.

Common Nature, Common Origins – The Philosophy and Practice of Oneness

By Giovanni Dienstmann

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

“He who, in pursuit of his own happiness, hurts others that are also seeking happiness, will not find it, either in this world or the next.” ~ Buddha

Our society is morally sick. Due to exaggerated value placed on individualism and materialism, most people are driven to pursue their own desires at whatever cost. Needless to say, this causes conflict and suffering to others, and to the planet — and yet many people are not even aware that this is not an intelligent strategy in the pursuit of their own personal happiness, much less the success of a society.

This situation is like if every cell in your body decides to act on its own, and consume as much nutrients and energy as it can – even more than it needs. Soon some parts of your body will get sick, and that will damage the health of the whole body – including that of those greedy cells.

Manifest-ology: The 7 Steps to Manifestation! (Which One Are You Missing?)

By Nanice Ellis

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Did you know that manifestation is actually a powerful technology that was taught in all the ancient mystery schools, including those of Egypt? This knowledge has since been suppressed and intentionally hidden, for many reasons. The good news is, we are finally awakening, and this powerful knowledge is being restored.

Many will say that the law of attraction doesn’t work, and this is very true — if you don’t possess all the key components necessary for success. But, when all the pieces of this technology come together, and you consciously use them properly, you have the makings of a Super Power.

With Everything at Stake, What Really Matters?

By Zen Gardner

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

It’s amazing how the big questions in life are pushed to the end of the line. Sure everyone wonders about the “big stuff” on and off, but their lives are too preoccupied with other issues that they’ve been told are more pressing and important – when it’s nothing of the sort.

This applies directly to the ongoing awakening and how to put our best foot forward in times like these. How best can we effect change? What is the most productive and effective course of action in our personal lives?

With everything at stake at this crucial juncture in history, these questions become profoundly important. And the answers just may surprise each of us.

Study Shows Exposure to Animals in Early Childhood Supports Immune Development

By Christina Lavers

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Is Urban Living Making Us Sick? 

The last century, especially the last several decades, has seen a steep rise in levels of allergies, asthma and auto-immune disorders. What is interesting is that statistical analysis shows that typically these conditions are more prevalent in developed nations than in developing countries, and when families migrate from a developing country with a low incidence rate to a developed one with a high incidence rate, it only takes one generation for the conditions to present.

A recent study from the University of Eastern Finland suggests that exposure to farm animals in early childhood may play an important role in the development of a healthy immune system, specifically in regards to the role of dendritic cells and cytokine production. Dendritic cells are messengers that present antigens to other cells to elicit an immunological response. Via this mechanism they regulate cytokine (messenger protein) production, adaptive immune system response, and are essential for the establishment of immunological memory.
