Spiritism in Brazil: A Vision of Change for the New Medical Paradigm

Cristo_Redentor_-_Rio

By HUW GRIFFITHS— There was an article in a New Dawn Special Issue No. 5 (published in June 2008) which happened to mention the word ‘Spiritism’. I was unfamiliar with the term except that I’d heard it before in the context of a character called John of God, a spiritual therapist who lives in a remote part of central Brazil. He’s extremely well known in his home country for the fact that he performs operations on up to one thousand patients a day, sometimes using nothing more than an … [Read more...]

By DOUG MARSH — One, two, buckle my shoe Three, four, knock at the door Five, six, pick up sticks …And so the nursery rhyme goes. Preschool kids learn to count in many fun ways to give them a head start in arithmetic. Once they enter the formalised school system, the subject matter eventually takes on a more serious “measure.” As the grades advance, the material progresses into more complex and diverse subjects, such as geometry, trigonometry, algebra and calculus.The focus of formalised … [Read more...]

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

centenarian

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...]

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.

Water Fluoridation: Facts & Fallacies

Copy of waterglass

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

How-DU-enters-body

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...]
