Virginia Livingston, M.D.: Cancer Quack Or Medical Genius?

By ALAN CANTWELL, MD Cancer is the most frightening human disease and its cause remains elusive. Therefore, it seems inconceivable that the discovery of a germ cause of cancer would provoke such hostility among the cancer establishment. But, in truth, the belief in a cancer germ has always been the ultimate scientific heresy. In the long history of cancer research there was never a physician more outspoken and controversial than Virginia Wuerthele-Caspe Livingston (1906-1990). For more than … [Read more...]

Microwave Towers & Faster Downloads: The Hidden Health Impact of Wireless Communications

By BENJAMIN NOWLAND Imagine you arrive home after work to discover a new microwave antenna tower stationed at the edge of your backyard fence? How would you respond? If you’d had non-existent mobile phone reception for years prior (or if you were a techie ‘hooked on faster downloads’) then you might find reason to celebrate! You might respond as an ambivalent disempowered citizen, “I really wonder about those things but there isn’t much I can do about this anyway.” You may be in the … [Read more...]

Revisiting the Work of Dr. Linus Pauling

By HUW GRIFFITHS A few months ago a very good friend of mine, who also happens to be a naturopath, learned that her mother had been diagnosed with breast cancer. As is frequently the case with any type of cancer diagnosis, there followed an intense period of fear, tension and anguish as everyone involved tried to sort out exactly what to do next. Typically there would be a tendency to rely wholly, and often desperately, on the advice of doctors and their staff, those who we respect as, not … [Read more...]

Nikola Tesla: Maverick, Visionary & Master of Light

By RIXON STEWART— It’s almost a cliché. Working alone, an inventive genius pioneers new devices that ultimately change the world but his genius is barely recognised and he goes on to die in relative poverty; and whilst he dies, virtually alone and unrecognised, his inventions eventually transform life across the planet. Unfortunately it’s pretty much the story of Nikola Tesla, the scientific visionary whose inventions shaped much of the 20th century, whilst the man himself has been all but … [Read more...]

Morsels of Knowledge Banquets of Ignorance: Scientific Fallacies Exposed

By RICHARD HEINBERG— [Humankind] approaches the unattainable truth through a succession of errors.  - Aldous Huxley, Wordsworth in the Tropics A state of thoroughly conscious ignorance is the prelude to every real advance of knowledge. - James Clerk Maxwell Culture consists, in large measure, of commonly shared sets of assumptions and expectations about reality. It is a kind of lens through which we look at the world, one that is implanted in us in infancy and childhood and that is … [Read more...]

Science Was Wrong: An Interview With Stanton Friedman

Stanton Friedman is one of the world’s most famous ufologists, and a man who understands the workings of mainstream science and academia. Employed for 14 years as a nuclear physicist for companies like General Electric, General Motors, Westinghouse and Aerojet General Nucleonics, he worked on highly classified US programs involving nuclear aircraft, fission and fusion rockets. In 1958, UFOs caught his attention, and Friedman has since lectured about this subject at more than 600 colleges and … [Read more...]

Increasing Your Life Expectancy: Modern Medicine’s Impact on the Extension of Life

By Dr. PETER DINGLE — All too often, we hear that the reason life expectancy has been increased is thanks to the marvellous developments in modern medicine. This is a message that is repeated many times and promoted by the medical industry – with little or no evidence. In fact, the opposite may be the truth. A combination of not understanding the concept of life expectancy, ignoring scientific facts, plus a willingness to take credit when it is not due has seen the medical industry promote … [Read more...]

The Great Cholesterol Deception

By Dr. PETER DINGLE — Millions of Australians are prescribed cholesterol-lowering drugs – statins like Pravachol®, Zocor® and Lipitor® – each year at a cost of more than $1 billion dollars with very little, if any, benefit. In the US, some 40 million people currently take statins at a cost of more than $3.00 per pill, more than $1,000 per year, totalling more than $40 billion a year. While there are many exaggerated claims and a lot of hype about the benefits of statins, there are also many … [Read more...]

Water Fluoridation: Facts & Fallacies

BY HUW GRIFFITHS — Water fluoridation has been around for just over 60 years and whilst the practice has become widespread, particularly in Western nations, it’s always been a controversial and often passionately argued one. My formative moment in the fluoride ‘debate’, one that cathartically shunted me into the anti-fluoride lobby’s arms, came many years ago when I was sitting in a dentist’s chair in Cambridge, UK. I knew very little about fluoride at the time, so it was with an open … [Read more...]

Depleted Uranium, Diabetes, Cancer And You

By ALAN CANTWELL, MD — Recently I received an intriguing email claiming that the rapidly increasing worldwide epidemic of diabetes was caused by depleted uranium (DU). As a medical doctor I never heard of such an idea. Every physician knows that radiation can lead to cancer, but the DU and diabetes connection seemed ludicrous. Nevertheless, I thought it would be interesting to check it out on the Internet. The best tool for medical research on the Net is the PubMed website sponsored by the … [Read more...]
