 - Did you know that the air you breathe on a commercial airliner comes directly from the engine, complete with engine oil, lubricants and hydraulic fluid? A new study confirms the link between contaminated cabin air and aerotoxic syndrome. Learn what you can do to protect yourself and your family.

If you don’t feel well after air travel, it might be more than simple jet lag. From the parking garage to the baggage carousel, your body undergoes a fusillade of toxic assaults. You may eat toxic food, drink toxic water, and touch contaminated surfaces—and then your body is bombarded by body scanners, Wi-Fi and cosmic radiation.

On top of all that, the air in the airplane is toxic.

For six decades, the airline industry has turned a blind eye to the adverse health effects of contaminated cabin air. Since warm air is needed for both engine propulsion and human respiration, aircraft manufacturers decided decades ago to combine the two by bringing air through the engine to heat it, then bleeding it directly into the cabin—unfiltered. This air brings with it a toxic mix of engine oil, lubricants, and various hydrocarbons. As noted by US Attorney Alisa Brodkowitz, the only air filters are the lungs of passengers and crew.

 - The cause of your physical pain and disease is you...

Yes, you. Not the environment, your mother’s genes or your junk food diet. Everything in your body that you see manifested as form and phenomena comes from the vibrations within your body which then give rise to either health or disease. What we feel–our emotions coordinate our biochemical, cellular and complete physiological states our entire lives. In other words, the cause of all disease is not tangible at all. Our outlook on life and how we feel about ourselves may be the most relevant health predictor of all.

Many people are already familiar with the fact that emotional stress can lead to digestive issues, irritable bowel syndrome, tension and headaches, but many may not be aware that can also cause other physical illnesses such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and even symptoms of severe chronic pain.

More subtly, one might develop psychosomatic symptoms or stress-related symptoms because of unresolved emotional issues. These are not new discoveries; researchers have studied the mind/body interrelationship for several decades because of the importance of this link.

 - Lately, I have been beginning to understand crystals in a whole new way. While I always knew they were powerful healers and carried a pure energy, it seems that crystals are so much more than just this.

In fact, it almost seems like each crystal carries its own personality and perhaps even its own consciousness. Could it be possible that a crystal has a mind of its own?

If you had asked me this question a few months ago, I probably would have struggled to wrap my head around it, but now I really wouldn’t be surprised if crystals did carry their own sort of consciousness.

As I have been grieving the loss of my sister, crystals have become a good ally to me, and working with them during this period of grief has helped me to understand them on a whole new level.

Here are 5 magical abilities of crystals that I have come to observe...

 - According to one expert, we are the aliens we’ve we been looking for all along.

A new theory proposed by Dr. Ellis Silver states that there are several tell-tale signs present in the human race that suggest human beings did not evolve ALONGSIDE other lifeforms on Earth.

Mankind is supposedly the most highly developed species on the planet, yet is surprisingly unsuited and ill-equipped for Earth’s environment: harmed by sunlight, a strong dislike for naturally occurring foods, ridiculously high rates of chronic disease, and more said Dr. Ellis in an interview.

According to Dr. Ellis, humans might suffer from back pain because our species initially evolved on another planet with a lower gravity, adding to the mysteries, Dr. Ellis also indicates that it is strange that newborns have large heads and make it difficult for mothers to give birth, which can result in fatalities for both mother and child.

So where do we come from? According to Dr. Ellis, Neanderthals were most likely crossbred with another species, perhaps from the star system Alpha Centauri –which is one of the closest solar systems to Earth— in the distant past, giving birth to modern humans.

 - We live in a post-Fukushima world and it’s about to get worse…

Sometimes it’s easy to blot out from our minds that the March 2011 Fukushima catastrophe that occurred when a major tsunami flooded Tepco’s nuclear cooling reactors following an earthquake was the worst radioactive disaster since the Chernobyl meltdown of 1986. Similar to Chernobyl, radiation was released across the globe, but the invisibility of it and the media’s lack of fervor, fades the devastating implications from public view.

That’s about to change with Tepco’s recent decision to release radioactive material from the Fukushima plant into the ocean, according to its owners who had been delaying a decision about the wastewater for quite some time.

The plan is to dump the radioactive material tritium which is used to cool reactors whose cooling systems were damaged in the tsunami.

 - Do you know that Tesla has a contemporary in Europe who was involved in equally revolutionary work? Though few have heard it before, the man’s name is Viktor Schauberger, and Viktor worked with water.

Schauberger was born in Holzschlag, Upper Austria in 1885. His father and grandfather were both foresters, and Viktor too followed the path and became the head forest warden for Prince Adolph van Schaumburg-Lippe in 1920. As Viktor roamed remote unspoiled mountainsides, through observation, intuition and heritage, he grew to understand how energy flows through the hydraulic vortexes of alpine lakes and streams.

Viktor used this knowledge to build a series of log flumes to enable efficient access to the high-mountain timber for the first time, but soon realized, due to industrial forest and water management practices, the energy of these systems was being quickly diminished. He foresaw the catastrophic environmental emergency that we face today in the 1920s.

mercury autism - The international journal Science of the Total Environment has just published a compelling study from the Republic of Korea, where autism prevalence is high. The study identifies a strong relationship between prenatal and early childhood exposure to mercury and autistic behaviors in five-year-olds.

The ongoing MOCEH study examines environmental exposures during pregnancy and childhood and their effects on children’s growth and development. A unique feature is that it includes five different blood samples: maternal blood from early and late pregnancy; cord blood; and samples from children at two and three years of age. In addition, the study asks mothers to complete three follow-up surveys and—when their child reaches age five—the 65-item Social Responsiveness Scale (SRS), which assesses autistic behaviors.

The researchers report a significant linear relationship between mercury exposure and autistic behaviors...

 - When was the last time you tasted the sublime?

When did you last feel wonder?

Can you remember feeling awed by something?

These are things we need, if we are to thrive. They are fuel for the higher human abilities. If we lack them, as is currently endemic throughout the West, our higher abilities will lag.

For lack of better terms we can call these feelings “upward movements of the heart,” and we are diminished when there is a lack of them. Without them we fail to develop our higher capacities and insights. We slide more and more toward becoming, in one critic’s words, “mere trousered apes.”

 - Many people recognize personally, and research has demonstrated that collectively, meditation, prayer, and intention can and does affect the world.

Below are some examples along with a very inspiring video that shares some remarkable insights.

In 1993 a successful experiment was performed in Washington DC in America to demonstrate the effect of a large group of transcendental meditators on crime levels. Researchers predicted in advance that the calming influence of group meditation practice could reduce violent crime by over 20 percent in Washington, D.C., during an 8-week period in the summer of 1993.

In fact, the findings later showed that the rate of violent crime decreased by 23 percent during the June 7 to July 30 experimental period. The odds of this result occurring by chance are less than 2 in 1 billion.

 - More than 350 million people on our planet suffer from depression, and it also has a profound effect on their loved ones. One of the most popular treatments, SSRI antidepressants, is risky, expensive, and not terribly effective. This has prompted some scientists to look for alternatives, and it appears they may have found a good solution in the form of magnesium.

This mineral is vital for many of our body’s functions, including our blood pressure, heart rhythm and bone strength. It also helps fight inflammation in the body. Now, scientists from the University of Vermont’s Larner College of Medicine have found promising results after a clinical trial involving the use of over-the-counter magnesium tablets in depressed patients.

In the blocked and randomized crossover trial of 126 adults using outpatient primary care clinics, participants with mild to moderate depression were studied over the course of 12 weeks. Some participants were given 248 milligrams of magnesium each day for the course of six weeks followed by six weeks without it, whereas those in the control group received no treatment for six weeks followed by six weeks of magnesium. All participants were given biweekly assessments of their depression symptoms.

 - Without much more than a whisper from the mainstream media, Monsanto’s newest Frankenfood has received full EPA approval and will be arriving on dinner plates by the end of the decade. The implications of this are harrowing, to say the least.

While you may not have made up your mind on the dangers of GMOs, you likely feel entitled to know when you’re consuming a food that is the product of laboratory research. For this reason, I am reporting on Monsanto’s latest food technology, unfortunately, already in the pipeline. And quite silently so. Both the dangers and the breakneck speed of development of this technology have gone largely ignored, even among activists deep in the non-GMO movement.

In order to truly appreciate the gravity of the situation, and why the EPA's approval of RNAi corn intended for human consumption, is so concerning, it will first require a little background information on the fascinating topic of non-coding small RNAs, and their formidable relevance to our health.

 - “No-one will ever silence me, and I will speak my mind,” says 16-year-old Leanne Mohamad, a British-Palestinian activist, to enthusiastic applause at the Palestine Expo.

“At school, when I was studying geography of the Middle East, Palestine was never mentioned. In history it was never mentioned, in religious studies, it was never mentioned. That’s why Palestinians describe themselves often as the forgotten people.”

“I stand before you today as evidence that children will never forget.”

Mohamad’s speech on Saturday summed up the passion, sumud and strength of the rising generations in both the UK and Palestine during Europe’s largest cultural event on Palestine.

The event that Britain’s Israel lobby tried to ban attracted some 16,000 people over two days. Coordinated by the UK non-profit organization Friends of Al-Aqsa, the event was located within Britain’s political hub, Westminster, in the publicly owned Queen Elizabeth II Centre.

Held on five floors, activities included traditional Palestinian dabke, Palestinian cooking demonstrations, spoken word, film, interactive installations, a large market-place, a food hall and other events.
