Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our
nation was the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest
middleclass in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What happened? Can you spell 'politicians?'

And I still have to 'press 1' for English?

Herbicide Proves Deadly to Human Cells Also

Round-up is what is being used heavily on all Genetically Modified Food which can take high levels without killing the plant. Meanwhile it is still heavily contanminating the food that is then eaten.
Weed-Whacking Herbicide Proves Deadly to Human Cells
Used in gardens, farms, and parks around the world, the weed killer Roundup contains an ingredient that can suffocate human cells in a laboratory, researchers say

WEED KILLER: New research has found that an 'inert' ingredient in the herbicide Roundup can kill human embryonic, placental, and umbilical cord cells
Used in yards, farms and parks throughout the world, Roundup has long been a top-selling weed killer. But now researchers have found that one of Roundup’s inert ingredients can kill human cells, particularly embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells.
The new findings intensify a debate about so-called “inerts” — the solvents, preservatives, surfactants and other substances that manufacturers add to pesticides. Nearly 4,000 inert ingredients are approved for use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Glyphosate, Roundup’s active ingredient, is the most widely used herbicide in the United States. About 100 million pounds are applied to U.S. farms and lawns every year, according to the EPA.
Until now, most health studies have focused on the safety of glyphosate, rather than the mixture of ingredients found in Roundup. But in the new study, scientists found that Roundup’s inert ingredients amplified the toxic effect on human cells—even at concentrations much more diluted than those used on farms and lawns.
One specific inert ingredient, polyethoxylated tallowamine, or POEA, was more deadly to human embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells than the herbicide itself – a finding the researchers call “astonishing.”
“This clearly confirms that the [inert ingredients] in Roundup formulations are not inert,” wrote the study authors from France’s University of Caen. “Moreover, the proprietary mixtures available on the market could cause cell damage and even death [at the] residual levels” found on Roundup-treated crops, such as soybeans, alfalfa and corn, or lawns and gardens.
The research team suspects that Roundup might cause pregnancy problems by interfering with hormone production, possibly leading to abnormal fetal development, low birth weights or miscarriages.
Monsanto, Roundup’s manufacturer, contends that the methods used in the study don’t reflect realistic conditions and that their product, which has been sold since the 1970s, is safe when used as directed. Hundreds of studies over the past 35 years have addressed the safety of glyphosate.
“Roundup has one of the most extensive human health safety and environmental data packages of any pesticide that's out there,” said Monsanto spokesman John Combest. “It's used in public parks, it's used to protect schools. There's been a great deal of study on Roundup, and we're very proud of its performance.”
The EPA considers glyphosate to have low toxicity when used at the recommended doses.
“Risk estimates for glyphosate were well below the level of concern,” said EPA spokesman Dale Kemery. The EPA classifies glyphosate as a Group E chemical, which means there is strong evidence that it does not cause cancer in humans.
In addition, the EPA and the U.S. Department of Agriculture both recognize POEA as an inert ingredient. Derived from animal fat, POEA is allowed in products certified organic by the USDA. The EPA has concluded that it is not dangerous to public health or the environment.
The French team, led by Gilles-Eric Seralini, a University of Caen molecular biologist, said its results highlight the need for health agencies to reconsider the safety of Roundup.
“The authorizations for using these Roundup herbicides must now clearly be revised since their toxic effects depend on, and are multiplied by, other compounds used in the mixtures,” Seralini’s team wrote.

The best defense against this type of thing is a strong immune system and taking lots of antioxidants for protection. Glyco nutritionals are important part also.

How much water should we drink?

Having lived in Phoenix, Arizona, for much of my life, I know what ‘hot’ feels like. Summer temperatures routinely exceeded 115 degrees Fahrenheit. This didn’t stop us from taking long hikes, even during the summer. The trick, we knew, was to avoid exertion during the hottest part of the day (noon to 4 p.m.) and remaining well hydrated. Hydration is not just drinking when you feel thirsty. By the time your body feels thirsty, it is already significantly water deficient. Hydration is an around-the-clock process, especially during summer. It takes some advance planning. Failure to do so could lead to dehydration, which causes muscle cramping, heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends that people maintain a balanced diet and drink plenty of fluids in the 24 hours prior to physical activity. (Actually, this seems like a common-sense recommendation for everyone, everyday!) According to ACSM, two hours prior to exercise or physical activity, individuals should consume around 16 ounces of water and continue drinking water thereafter to replace fluids lost by sweating. The amount of fluid lost from sweating will obviously depend on the individual’s weight, metabolism and the physical environment but will generally be between 16 and 56 ounces of water per hour. ACSM recommends that runners, for example, should drink around 18 to 33 ounces (0.8 to 1.0 liters) per hour of water to stay well hydrated. This means that a couple of water bottles that hold a quart 32 oz of water each will be enough to keep you going strong for at least two hours. The ACSM also recommends that pure water is the best source of hydration for activities lasting one hour or less. After that point, “sports drinks” (I'm not talking about “Gatorade”) (contact me if you want to know the best sports drink proven by the lab test ) that help replace lost electrolytes and provide energy may give additional benefits. Following exercise, individuals can fully rehydrate by drinking around 1 1/2 quarts of water for each 2 1/2 pounds (kilogram) of body weight lost. This should not be consumed all at once but preferably over the course of several hours with natural foods or snacks with no white or processed sugar added.
Health authorities also generally agree that consumption of caffeine and alcohol should be avoided since both of these substances act as diuretics and will increase the amount of fluid loss by urination. Also, advancing age, certain drugs or medical conditions may make certain individuals more prone to dehydration. And I have found that by adding sea water concentrate in the form of 50 to 1 concentrate in half the water you drink per day and in the other half put a few drops 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Each can be purchased at the small independent health food stores all over United States but not generally found in a large chain health food stores.
I have found that when most people drink enough water they have much less health challenges in one of the most common success stories is how their pains go away. That's it if you have any kind of pain and try drinking more water.

How do you respond after a challenge? It's the KEY!

There is a Champion in each of you & your children “clawing” and “screaming” trying to get out… This short 3 minute movie is just for you.

We find this is true throughout the Bible also.
