Cure for Cancer

Cure for Cancer - The Rick Simpson Protocol - (Sections related HERE, HERE)

"They let the genie out of the bottle with this one, and the big money can't put it back in."

After a serious head injury in 1997, Rick Simpson sought relief from his medical condition through the use of medicinal hemp oil.

When Rick discovered that the hemp oil (with its high concentration of T.H.C.) cured cancers and other illnesses, he tried to share it with as many people as he could free of charge - curing and controlling literally hundreds of people's illnesses... but when the story went public, the long arm of the law snatched the medicine - leaving potentially thousands of people without their cancer treatments - and leaving Rick with unconstitutional charges of possessing and trafficking marijuana!

Canada is in the middle of a CANCER EPIDEMIC!

Meet the people who were not allowed to testify on Rick's behalf at the Supreme Court of Canada's Infamous Rick Simpson Trial on September 10, 2007... INCLUDING A MAN WHO WAS CURED OF TERMINAL CANCER USING HEMP OIL!

Why Culture and Society Banned Psychedelic Plants

Each individual has the power to become great, to become special by understanding the core of his or her existence. However, society and culture have taken some of that power away through actions such as prohibition of the use of psychedelic plants. The powers that be aren’t concerned about whether or not people jump out of windows or that public health is deteriorating. They just don’t want people to take back their own minds.

“You have to take seriously the notion that understanding the universe is your responsibility, because the only understanding of the universe that will be useful to you is your own understanding.”

How Hemp Threatens the Corporatocracy

Abby Martin takes a look at the real reason why hemp is illegal in the US, the truth might surprise you.

02 December 2012


Dear President Obama,

Industrial hemp can repair our economy, if you will let it. We might be too young to vote, but we’re the ones getting stuck with a trillion-dollar debt we didn’t sign for. We have to try and help you correct some seriously wrong information that’s stalling you on including hemp in the recovery plan. Every other developed nation already grows industrial hemp.

No other crop can provide so much fuel, food, fiber, medicine and building material. Anything made from petroleum can also be made from hemp. That’s why owners of corporate monopolies on basic resources arranged since 1937 not to have to compete with hemp, preventing local communities from providing for their own needs, forcing everyone into their customer base. Smothering competition by suppressing alternatives is an old ploy.

Hemp can provide more useable biomass than any other crop, for alcohol (up to 1200 gallons an acre) or simply raw fuel. It has such a long taproot, spring rains are usually enough to get it going. And it’ll grow on marginal lands, or even lands recovering from logging, which the government has like millions of acres of, right?

Depending on the strain, we can get 100–300 gallons of seed oil an acre. This was the standard fuel, lubricant and paint base, before petroleum took over. But right now all hemp seed oil is imported, and it’s in such high demand for body-care products and as food, it’s selling for ten to twenty times what gas costs, so no one’s using it for fuel right away. At current prices, hemp seed oil alone can bring in several thousand dollars per acre, until volume finally brings prices down.

Hemp has the longest, strongest natural fiber, and the yield is at least three times that from cotton, and it doesn’t need chemicals. The leftover stalk fragments make four or five times as much paper per acre per year as trees, with no toxic waste, and the paper lasts centuries. Or they can be mixed with cement to form hempcrete, much lighter and stronger than concrete. Or the stalks can be heat-pressed into boards, beams and panels that are twice as strong and light and fireproof as those made from trees. No one has to keep cutting down trees older than people.

Canceling hemp prohibition helps solve a bunch of other big problems, including prison overcrowding, law enforcement spread too thin, winter fuel shortages, food banks running low (a couple tons an acre of high-protein seed should help), and overpriced pharmaceuticals (a hundred years ago, hemp bud tincture was the most-prescribed remedy, and no one ever died from its side effects).

Sixteen-foot forests growing in four months can provide huge areas of cooling shade for people or tree seedlings, suppressing weeds without any herbicides, replenishing soil, preventing erosion, absorbing megatons of CO2 and restoring oxygen lost through deforestation, so public health improves and health care costs come down.

Thousands of small family farms went under because of chemical debts and an economy skewed by the ban on hemp, which requires no chemicals. Legal hemp makes small-scale farming much more viable.

When Lincoln said, “To get a bad law repealed, enforce it strictly”, he maybe didn’t anticipate asset forfeiture laws, self-serve bribery for police forces forced to play along with hemp suppression when their other funding was slashed.

George Washington said, “Plant hemp everywhere.” Thomas Jefferson urged farmers to grow hemp, instead of tobacco for export. But today we can’t, just because some long-dead petrochemical and timber barons said so, back in 1937. Work through the numbers, you’ll see hemp prohibition was the most destructive special-interest law ever. The monopolists who inherited that advantage, still profiting by making everyone else poorer, don’t need any worse punishment than being what they are, but they don’t need to keep getting rewarded either.

In school they had us all read “The Grapes of Wrath”. Steinbeck nails it with that scene where the men with guns burn a truckload of oranges to keep prices up, instead of just giving them to the starving people watching. How are the endless taxpayer-funded bonfires of hemp any different?

Again, there was never any actual proven “public menace” from marijuana; public anxiety was created entirely by Hearst’s newspaper stories, written to protect the value of his timber holdings, and the Dupont patents on wood-pulp paper and synthetic textiles. (It was no coincidence that the head of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics at that time, Harry Anslinger, was the nephew-in-law of DuPont’s banker Andrew Mellon.) Congress got conned; hemp was never even mentioned in the law that effectively outlawed it. That insane law has drastically lowered citizens’ respect for our whole legal system, while diverting vital police resources from protecting the public to protecting robber barons from competition. And now the War on Drugs kills more young people than any other cause.

Legal hemp won’t make people abuse it any more than they do now, but it’ll be a whole lot cheaper, and so will everything else. Localizing production makes it less necessary to spend so much energy transporting fuel, food, fiber and industrial feedstock over great distances. Cheap raw material with no toxic by-products allows manufacturers to pay workers more. Costs, workloads, and motivation for crime all come down. As the quality of our lives improves, there’s less reason for anyone to want to “escape from reality”.

As more citizens learn that each acre of hemp can produce enough seeds to feed a dozen or more people for a year, public compliance with its prohibition will reach all-time lows. And if the ban on importing viable hempseed into the US is still in place, what they plant won’t be the low-THC industry-approved varieties. Repealing our most unscientific law could head off massive civil disobedience.

As you verify all this, it’d be best to rely on advisors who aren’t heavily invested in oil, pharmaceuticals, timber or scarcity.

Thanks for being so patient. Are you grasping the enormity of what’s been taken from America, and what’s now in your power to give us back?

We realize it’s not easy to admit that a long-standing policy was horribly wrong. Now we have to change the hardest thing of all, our minds. It’s time for the audacity of hemp.

Yours truly,
America’s Youth

(A lot of people teamed up to gather this information.)

OK kids, it’s up to us now. The adults are all too slammed coping with the plundered economy. You can use this letter as raw material, add your own research, or if there’s not enough time just add your name to this letter and send it on to the white house ( Also call 202-456-1111 and pass on your ideas to the volunteers there. And most of all ask your friends to write and call the white house, and to ask all their friends, until kids in DC are writing about it, and when the President’s daughters start talking about it, maybe he’ll listen to them.

If you’ve read this far and knew all this, you must already be helping, so thank you! If any of it sounds too good to be true, hit the net and see what you find out. Just watch out for innocently repeated misinformation, since there’s a lot of it, generated at great taxpayer expense.

A big example is the discrepancy between current oil production figures from the permitted low-THC varieties, and the pre-prohibition oil yields which ran at least three times higher per acre. Out of over a thousand strains of cannabis hemp, only about twenty-four are 0.3% THC or less, and now approved for industrial use, under an international compromise with the energy industry. Though it’s widely repeated that industrial hemp has to be low-THC, obviously people weren’t smoking that kind back before prohibition, why bother? Whatever they had was strong enough to come up with jazz and art nouveau, and it’s no surprise that higher oil, resin and THC levels go together. Industrial hemp and medicinal hemp co-existed for thousands of years, so all efforts to pit them against each other are just trying to prolong prohibition. Since the ban on hemp was based on false charges in the first place, there is zero excuse for any further restrictions. Work toward full legalization, even if it can only be reached incrementally.

Another common misconception is that hemp is invasive. If that were so, hemp would already cover the globe. Instead it is an ideal companion plant.

Since the original 1937 Marijuana Tax Act already put a $200 an ounce tax on hemp, until that is repealed, proposals to add new taxes are short-sighted. Letting people simply grow hemp freely will expand the economy much faster, and help avoid the food shortages many have predicted.

Legalizing hemp should also open the floodgates on other suppressed alternatives. See for an encyclopedic sample and a detailed hemp section. And “The Emperor Wears No Clothes” by the late Jack Herer is still the most thorough account of exactly how and why hemp was outlawed.

If anyone tells you it’s too late or it won’t matter, politely ignore them.

This President has said he wants to do the right thing, but that we have to make him do it. His job is not to solve all our problems, but to buy us time while we solve them. It doesn’t help that some of his advisers are in mathematical denial, and can’t think outside the box they helped build.

And we can’t tell yet how much he knows about the unelected shadow government he’s up against.

There’s a lot of noise on the net about him being just another insider, one of the “Illuminati”. Yeah, they were only pretending to be desperately trying to block his election. So now they’re hoping to peel away his public support by accusing him of being one of them. The name “Illuminati” makes it sound like they must be really bright, but no, they’re still playing old zero-sum games while the rest of the world is trying to move forward. So don’t let fear hold you back; they might have money, weapons and media, but they have no imagination, and Nature is on our side.

Except for the Digital Age, which is pretty cool, the 21st century really hasn’t delivered yet. Let’s fix that. Thanks!

The 18 Most Suppressed Inventions Ever

August 31, 2012
from USAHitman Website

Here is a list of 18 inspiring inventions that never had the chance…  
Perhaps the most notorious suppressed invention is the General Motors EV1, subject of the 2006 documentary, Who Killed the Electric Car?

The EV1 was the world’s first mass-produced electric car, with 800 of them up for lease from GM in the late ’90s. GM ended the EV1 line in 1999, stating that consumers weren’t happy with the limited driving range of the car’s batteries, making it unprofitable to continue production.

Many skeptics, however, believe GM killed the EV1 under pressure from oil companies, who stand to lose the most if high-efficiency vehicles conquer the market. It didn’t help that GM hunted down and destroyed every last EV1, ensuring the technology would die out.
In 1921, if the streetcar industry wasn’t actually naming streetcars Desire, it was certainly desiring more streetcars.

They netted $1 billion, causing General Motors to hemorrhage $65 million in the face of a thriving industry. GM retaliated by buying and closing hundreds of independent railway companies, boosting the market for gas-guzzling GM buses and cars.

While a recent urban movement to rescue mass transit has been underway, it is unlikely we’ll ever see streetcars return to their former glory.
The holy grail of automotive technology is the 99-mpg car. Although the technology has been available for years, automakers have deliberately withheld it from the U.S. market.
In 2000, the New York Times reported a little-known fact, at least to most:
A diesel-powered dynamo called the Volkswagen Lupo had driven around the world averaging higher than 99 mpg.
The Lupo was sold in Europe from 1998 to 2005 but, once again, automakers prevented it from coming to market; they claimed Americans had no interest in small, fuel-efficient cars. 
Nikola Tesla was more than just the inspiration for a hair metal band, he was also an undisputed genius.

In 1899, he figured out a way to bypass fossil-fuel-burning power plants and power lines, proving that “free energy” could be harnessed using ionization in the upper atmosphere to produce electrical vibrations.
J.P. Morgan, who had been funding Tesla’s research, had a bit of buyer’s remorse when he realized that free energy for all wasn’t as profitable as, say, actually charging people for every watt of energy use.

Morgan then drove another nail in free energy’s coffin by chasing away other investors, ensuring Tesla’s dream would die.
In 2001, Nova Scotian Rick Simpson discovered that a cancerous spot on his skin disappeared within a few days of applying an essential oil made from marijuana.

Since then, Simpson and others have treated thousands of cancer patients with incredible success.
Researchers in Spain have confirmed that THC, an active compound in marijuana, kills brain-tumor cells in human subjects and shows promise with breast, pancreatic and liver tumors.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, however, classifies marijuana as a Schedule I drug, meaning that it has no accepted medical use, unlike Schedule II drugs, like cocaine and methamphetamine, which may provide medical benefits.
What a buzzkill...
Despite how silly it sounds, water-fueled vehicles do exist.

The most famous is Stan Meyer’s dune buggy, which achieved 100 miles per gallon and might have become more commonplace had Meyer not succumbed to a suspicious brain aneurysm at 57.

Insiders have loudly claimed that Meyer was poisoned after he refused to sell his patents or end his research. Fearing a conspiracy, his partners have all but gone underground (or should we say underwater?) and taken his famed water-powered dune buggy with them.

We just hope someone finally brings back the amphibious car.
What if you had a device that could see into the future and revisit the past? And what if you didn’t need Christopher Lloyd to help you?

Father Pellegrino Maria Ernetti, an Italian priest, claimed in the 1960s to have invented what he called a Chronovisor, something that allowed him to witness Christ’s crucifixion.
The device supposedly enabled viewers to watch any event in human history by tuning in to remnant vibrations that are caused by every action. (His team of researchers and builders included Enrico Fermi, who also worked on the first atomic bomb).

On his deathbed, Fermi admitted that he had faked viewings of ancient Greece and Christ’s demise, but insisted the Chronovisor, which had by then vanished, still worked.

Unsurprisingly, conspiracy theorists say the Vatican is now the likely owner of the original Chronovisor. 

American inventor Royal Rife (his real name), in 1934, cured 14 “terminal” cancer patients and hundreds of animal cancers by aiming his “beam ray” at what he called the “cancer virus.”

So why isn’t the Rife Ray in use today?

A 1986 book, The Cancer Cure That Worked, Fifty Years of Suppression, by Barry Lynes and John Crane, revived the Rife device affair.

The book, written in a style typical of conspiratorial theorists, cites names, dates, events and places, giving the appearance of authenticity to a mixture of historical documents and speculations selectively spun into a web far too complex to permit verification by any thing short of a army of investigators with unlimited resources.

The authors claim that Rife successfully demonstrated his device’s cancer curing ability in 1934, but that,
“all reports describing the cure were censored by the head of the AMA from the major medical journals.”
A 1953 U.S. Senate special investigation concluded that Fishbein and the AMA had conspired with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to suppress various alternative cancer treatments that conflicted with the AMA’s pre-determined view that,
“radium, x-ray therapy and surgery are the only recognized treatments for cancer.”

In 1953, a drought threatened Maine’s blueberry crop, and several farmers offered to pay Wilhelm Reich if he could make it rain.

The weather bureau had reportedly forecast no rain for several days when Reich began the experiment at 10 a.m. on July 6, 1953.
The Bangor Daily News reported on July 24:
Dr. Reich and three assistants set up their “rain-making” device off the shore of Grand Lake. The device, a set of hollow tubes, suspended over a small cylinder, connected by a cable, conducted a “drawing” operation for about an hour and ten minutes.

According to a reliable source in Ellsworth the following climatic changes took place in that city on the night of July 6 and the early morning of July 7:
“Rain began to fall shortly after ten o’clock Monday evening, first as a drizzle and then by midnight as a gentle, steady rain. Rain continued throughout the night, and a rainfall of 0.24 inches was recorded in Ellsworth the following morning.”
A puzzled witness to the “rain-making” process said:
“The queerest looking clouds you ever saw began to form soon after they got the thing rolling.”
And later the same witness said the scientists were able to change the course of the wind by manipulation of the device.

The blueberry crop survived, the farmers declared themselves satisfied, and Reich received his fee
A number of overunity generators, which produce more energy than they take to run, have surfaced in the past century.

Ironically, they have been more trouble than they were worth. In nearly all cases, a supposedly working prototype has been unable to make it to commercial production as a result of various corporate or government forces working against the technology.
Recently, the Lutec 1000, an “electricity amplifier,” has been making steady progress toward a final commercial version.

Will consumers soon be able to buy it, or will it too be suppressed?

Billions of dollars have been spent researching how to create energy using controlled “hot fusion,” a risky and unpredictable line of experimentation.

Meanwhile, garage scientists and a fringe group of university researchers have been getting closer to harnessing the power of “cold fusion,” which is much more stable and controllable, but far less supported by government and foundation money.

In 1989, Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons announced that they had made a breakthrough and had observed cold fusion in a glass jar on their lab bench. To say the reaction they received was chilly would be an understatement.

CBS’s 60 Minutes described how the resulting backlash from the well-funded hot-fusion crowd sent the researchers underground and overseas, where within a few years their funding dried up, forcing them to drop their pursuit of clean energy.
Cold fusion isn’t the only technology to get buried by hot-headed scientists.

When two physicists who were working on the decades-long Tokamak Hot Fusion project at Los Alamos Laboratory stumbled across a cheaper, safer method of creating energy from colliding atoms, they were allegedly forced to repudiate their own discoveries or be fired; the lab feared losing the torrent of government money for Tokamak.

In retaliation, the lead researchers created the Focus Fusion Society, which raises private money to fund their research outside of government interference.
Nazi scientists spent much of World War II hidden in a covert military base somewhere in the arctic, creating the Magnetofunk.

This alleged invention was designed to deflect the compasses of Allied aircraft that might be searching for Point 103, as the base was known. The aircraft pilots would think they were flying in a straight line, but would gradually curve around Point 103 without ever knowing they were deceived.

The Himmelkompass allowed German navigators to orient themselves to the position of the sun, rather than magnetic forces, so they could find Point 103 despite the effects of the Magnetofunk.
According to Wilhelm Landig, a former SS officer, these two devices were closely guarded secrets of the Third Reich.

So closely guarded were they that neither device apparently survived the collapse of Hitler’s Germany, although the real tragedy is that no one has ever named their band Magnetofunk.
In the 1960s, the Liggett & Myers tobacco company created a product called the XA, a cigarette in which most of the stick’s carcinogens had been eliminated.

Dr. James Mold, Liggett’s Research Director, reported in court documents in the case of “The City and County of San Francisco vs. Phillip Morris, Inc.,” that Phillip Morris threatened to “clobber” Liggett if they did not adhere to an industry agreement never to reveal information about the negative health effects of smoking.

By advertising a “safer” alternative, they would be admitting the dangers of tobacco use. The lawsuit was dismissed on a technicality and Phillip Morris never addressed the accusations.

Despite their own scientists’ publication of research that showed less cancer in mice exposed to smoke from the XA, Liggett & Myers issued a press released denying evidence of cancer in humans as a result of tobacco use, and the XA never saw the light of day. 
The Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation (TENS) device was created to alleviate pain impulses from the body without the use of drugs.

In 1974, Johnson & Johnson bought StimTech, one of the first companies to sell the machine, and proceeded to starve the TENS division of money, causing it to flounder. StimTech sued, alleging that Johnson & Johnson purposely stifled the TENS technology to protect sales of its flagship drug, Tylenol.

Johnson & Johnson responded that the device never performed as well as was claimed and that it was not profitable. StimTech’s founders won $170 Million, although the ruling was appealed and overturned on a technicality.

The court’s finding that the corporation suppressed the TENS device was never overturned.
Phillips, GE and Osram engaged in a conspiracy from 1924 to 1939 with the goal of controlling the fledgling light-bulb industry, according to a report published in Time magazine six years later.

The alleged cartel set prices and suppressed competing technologies that would have produced longer-lasting and more efficient light bulbs.
By the time the cabal dissolved, the industry-standard incandescent bulb was established as the dominant source of artificial light across Europe and North America.

Not until the late 1990s did compact fluorescent bulbs begin to edge into the worldwide lighting market as an alternative.
How did Ed Leedskalnin build the massive Coral Castle in Homestead, Florida, out of giant chunks of coral weighing up to 30 tons each with no heavy equipment and no outside help?

Theories abound, including anti-gravity devices, magnetic resonance and alien technology, but the answer may never be known.
Leedskalnin died in 1951 without any written plans or clues as to his techniques. The centerpiece of the castle, which is now a museum open to the public, is a nine-ton gate that used to move with light pressure from one finger.

After the gate’s bearings wore out in the 1980s, a crew of five took more than two weeks to fix it, although they never did get it to work as effortlessly as Leedskalnin’s original masterpiece.
The father of our country, George Washington, who is rumored to have said “I cannot tell a lie,” was a proud supporter of the hemp seed.

Of course, the only thing more suppressed in this country than an honest politician is hemp, which is often mistakenly for marijuana and therefore unfairly maligned.

Governmental roadblocks, meanwhile, prevent hemp from becoming the leader in extracting ethanol, allowing environmentally damaging sources like corn to take over the ethanol industry. Despite the fact that it requires fewer chemicals, less water and less processing to do the same job, hemp has never caught on.

Experts also lay the blame at the feet of (who else?) Presidential candidates, who kiss up to Iowa corn growers for votes.

Marijuana Heals Cancer

BBC special on Cannabinoid Receptors... A new study published in Nature Reviews-Cancer provides an historic and detailed explanation about how THC and natural cannabinoids counteract cancer, but preserve normal cells. It is hard to believe that the knowledge that cannabis can be used to fight cancer has been suppressed for almost thirty years, yet it seems likely that it will continue to be suppressed. Why? According to Cowan, the answer is because it is a threat to cannabis prohibition. Millions of people have died horrible deaths and in many cases, families exhausted their savings on dangerous, toxic and expensive drugs. Now we are just beginning to realize that while marijuana has never killed anyone, marijuana prohibition has killed millions.

Clearing the Smoke: The Science of Cannabis

Clearing the Smoke, reveals how cannabis acts on the brain and in the body to treat nausea, pain, epilepsy and potentially even cancer.

Extensive interviews with patients, doctors, researchers and skeptics detail the promises and the limitations of medicinal cannabis. Even though the video has an American perspective, marijuana use is illegal throughout many countries of the world for reasons that are not clear.

This video is important because it mainly investigates the scientific basis underlying the medical benefits of marijuana use instead of focusing on the social, political and legal hysteria that have been attached to it.

The paper mentioned in this video, Marihuana Reconsidered, was published in book form. The author, Dr Lester Grinspoon, is the world's leading authority on marijuana. In this book, Dr Grinspoon examines — and debunks — many of the common misconceptions about marijuana.

Staying Young Forever

Our culture places great value on staying and looking young and a huge industry is in place to give people the opportunity to live longer. Anti-aging enthusiasts contend that life spans can be prolonged. Advice from the National Institute on Aging is to be a skeptical consumer on guard for possible scams involving purported anti-aging products. “Our culture places great value on staying young, but aging is normal,” the Institute says. “Despite claims about pills or treatments that lead to endless youth, no treatments have been proven to slow or reverse the aging process.”

The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine’s mission statement includes: “The disabilities associated with normal aging are caused by physiological dysfunction which in many cases are ameliorable to medical treatment, such that the human lifespan can be increased.” Dr. Robert Goldman, a cofounder of the academy and a doctor of osteopathic medicine says that anti-aging products can be very expensive and that people on tight budgets still can take useful steps such as drinking purified water, taking vitamins and using sunscreen.

Yes just take a little poison with your outdoor fun in the sun and hide from the center of the solar system blocking vitamin D generation with chemical sunscreens. These people just seem not to know much about basic physiology and nutrition. Starve a person and see how far they get in life!

The New York Times printed, “In 1965, in an impoverished rural county in the Mississippi Delta, the pioneering physician Dr. Jack Geiger helped found one of the nation’s first community health centers. Many of the children Geiger treated were seriously malnourished, so he began writing “prescriptions” for food — stipulating quantities of milk, vegetables, meat, and fruit that could be “filled” at grocery stores, which were instructed to send the bills to the health center, where they were paid out of the pharmacy budget. When word of this reached the Office of Economic Opportunity in Washington, which financed the center, an official was dispatched to Mississippi to reprimand Geiger and make sure he understood that the center’s money could be used only for medical purposes. Geiger replied: “The last time I looked in my textbooks, the specific therapy for malnutrition was food.” The official had nothing to say and returned to Washington.”

The National Institute on Aging should know and celebrate the fact that there are treatments that definitely, beyond all doubt, extend life and health. Food extends our lives and when we look closely, as we shall do below, when we concentrate nutritional substances and make them into non-pharmaceutical medicines, we can extend life over the long haul.


Because bicarbonate deficiencies become more prevalent as we age, taking sodium bicarbonate, simple aluminum-free Arm & Hammer® baking soda, will help ensure you don’t age so fast. Bicarbonate deficiency is the most unrecognized medical condition on earth even though it is extraordinarily common.Problems revolving around elevated acid pH levels (relative deficiency in bicarbonate ions) take a large toll on human physiology and the more acidic a person becomes, the larger the problem for their cell physiology. Every biochemical reaction is pH sensitive, with enzymes being especially sensitive.

Parhatsathid Napatalung from Thailand writes, “The pancreas is harmed if the body is metabolically acid as it tries to maintain bicarbonates. Without sufficient bicarbonates, the pancreas is slowly destroyed, insulin becomes a problem and hence diabetes becomes an issue. Without sufficient bicarbonate buffer, the effect of disease is far reaching as the body becomes acid.” In conjunction with this is an inability to produce enough bicarbonate essential for the pancreatic enzymes to function properly.

Sang Whang reminds us that, “The body’s bicarbonate level remains fairly constant until the age of 45 and linearly decreases about 18% by the time one reaches 90 years of age. In general, adult degenerative diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure start to appear at the age of 45 and up, and gradually worsen approaching the age of 90 and up. It is this reduction of bicarbonates in the blood that affects blood flow and makes it difficult to manage the continuous outpour of acid, making it difficult to eliminate acid waste from the body and thereby developing many acid-induced degenerative diseases such as blood clots, acid reflux, heart disease, osteoporosis, gout, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease, cancer, strokes, etc. Alzheimer’s disease is nothing but a slow acidification of the brain. All these diseases are caused by systemic acidosis, which means insufficient bicarbonates in the blood.”

When the body is bicarbonate-sufficient, it is more capable of resisting the toxicity of chemical insults and this is of course incredibly important with all the chemicals, heavy metals and the now-increasing radiation in our environment.



Because magnesium deficiency causes all kinds of havoc with our cell physiology and worsens as we age, appropriate magnesium supplementation will help ensure you don’t age so fast. When magnesium is deficient, things begin to die, but when our body’s magnesium levels are topped off, our body physiology tends to hum along like a racecar yielding higher performance along many physiological parameters. Most doctors do not want to acknowledge that magnesium deficiency can lead directly to cancer, thus to a great shortening of life. Same goes for diabetes and heart disease—magnesium deficiency brings on these diseases.

Magnesium is a vital mineral whose lack leaves us open to not only radioactive damages but also those from heavy metals and thousands of chemicals to which we are commonly exposed. Without sufficient magnesium, the body accumulates toxins and acid residues, degenerates rapidly, and ages prematurely.

Magnesium is the “lamp of life”—it operates at the core of physiology offering us what can only be called scientific miracles in medicine. All of life collapses around its loss. The realization that magnesium is at the center of life in chlorophyll should help us place magnesium in the temple where it deserves to be.

Other Minerals and Nutrients

Because iodine and selenium deficiencies track disease prevalence across the board, supplementing with them will also contribute to making sure you don’t age so fast. Deficiencies in basic minerals can make all the difference between health and disease, between a long life and a short one. In low-selenium geographic areas, three times as many people died from cancer as in the high-selenium areas. If one does not die of cancer one’s life is naturally extended!

In the second edition of my Transdermal Magnesium Therapy book, I cover in great detail the reality of how magnesium deficiencies lead directly to inflammation conditions and why magnesium chloride would be a primary substance to use as an anti-inflammatory. This book has a chapter called “Magnesium Bicarbonate” and it highlights the usefulness of almost always using sodium bicarbonate with magnesium chloride for greatest effect. Together they team up to supercharge everything from the mitochondria to vanquishing inflammation in a way that does no harm to the body. There are no side effects with such medicinals when they are used with any kind of prudence. Add iodine and one has the formula for control of infectious diseases in the 21st century, the age of toxicity and antibiotic-resistant infections. Low grade chronic inflammation is one of the key factors that wear out our cells leading to early premature death.

Open Radiating Heart

Description: image

I have already written that those with open and radiating hearts stay young forever. The spiritual heart, when wide open, represents a fountain of youth and a force that helps us resist environmental insults, infections and disease. There is nothing like love and an unselfish disposition to sustain a person through the decades.

Dr. Norman Shealy and Dr. Caroline Myss both clearly believe that love of others and being loved are key factors in improving the immune system, adding to life expectancy and creating overall happiness. What does love have to do with stress-free living? “Everything!” says Dr. Brenda Schaeffer.

Don’t Tell Anyone


Don’t tell Dr. Goldman of The National Institute on Aging that Fulla Nayak, a 125-year-old woman said to be one of the oldest women in India, who lived in a small mud-walled thatched house in Kanarpur, was known for her love of smoking ganja, another name for medical marijuana. It was said upon her recent death (August of 2011) that she had never suffered any debilitating ailment throughout her life. Except for her weak eyesight, Fulla maintained good health and walked without support. There is plenty of evidence and scientific reasoning to sustain her belief that it was the marijuana that sustained her beyond the lifespan of most people’s dreams.

Now marijuana is the least expensive substance on the planet if the government would simply leave everyone alone and let them grow the weed in their backyards or living rooms. In fact we find that it is usually the least expensive substances that provide the maximum kick into a long life.


It almost feels funny to be writing about staying young forever when the real challenge is going to be staying alive over the short term. But my readers will not be surprised to read that staying healthy and strong over the short term entails exactly the same protocol as staying young forever. Adding iodine and Rejuvenate to all the above medicinal medicines and some organic sulfur would create a strong mixture that would be like feeding organic rocket fuel to the cells. Taken all together one can definitely expect to feel stronger, have more energy during the day, have a sharper mind and emotional center at deeper peace, and recover from any disease much more easily.

There are extraordinarily simple, safe and effective ways of treating the diseases of our times that are affordable to most if not all of humanity. These treatments can be organized into a new form of medicine, which can be mainstreamed because they are backed by medical research and science. This is not to say that patients do not have to resolve crucial, difficult and complex issues of mind, emotion and spirit, but it does mean that the physical body does not have to be surrendered to an expensive and unnatural form of medicine that hurts more than it helps.

Time To Put Marijuana In Every Home

Dr Christopher Fichtner MD is a psychiatrist and the former mental health director for the state of Illinois.
In his new book, Cannabinomics: The Marijuana Policy Tipping Point, Fichtner predicts that marijuana policy is about to change radically.
Dr Fichtner points out three public policy trajectories converging; The medical marijuana movement is gaining momentum. People are increasingly waking up to the fact that drug prohibition creates more public health problems than it solves. And, in the same way that the Great Depression caused people to reprioritize how we spend our public dollars, the current economic crisis has got people thinking that bringing the biggest cash crop in the US back into the open might not be such a bad idea.

Marijuana cuts lung cancer tumor growth in half, Harvard study shows

The active ingredient in marijuana cuts tumor growth in common lung cancer in half and significantly reduces the ability of the cancer to spread, say researchers at Harvard University who tested the chemical in both lab and mouse studies.

They say this is the first set of experiments to show that the compound, Delta-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), inhibits EGF-induced growth and migration in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expressing non-small cell lung cancer cell lines. Lung cancers that over-express EGFR are usually highly aggressive and resistant to chemotherapy.

THC that targets cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 is similar in function to endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the body and activate these receptors. The researchers suggest that THC or other designer agents that activate these receptors might be used in a targeted fashion to treat lung cancer.

Politics vs Science: Understanding Cannabis Therapeutics Before It Is Censored

by Kris Hermes
April 03, 2011
from NaturalNews Website
There's major breaking news on medical marijuana:
Now the National Cancer Institute has officially recognized the medicinal properties of medical marijuana for cancer sufferers. 
About the author
Kris Hermes, Media Specialist Americans for Safe Access

A milestone quietly occurred last month, and one the federal government would prefer to ignore.
Yet, it could mean a step in the right direction for hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people who use a centuries-old botanical medicine: cannabis, otherwise know as marijuana.

According to the Washington Independent, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) changed its website on March 17th and for the first time listed cannabis as a Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM).
At that time, the NCI website read:
"The potential benefits of medicinal Cannabis for people living with cancer include antiemetic effects, appetite stimulation, pain relief, and improved sleep. In the practice of integrative oncology, the health care provider may recommend medicinal Cannabis not only for symptom management but also for its possible direct antitumor effect."
And just in case the issue of medical efficacy was in question, NCI further stated that:
"Cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years prior to its current status as an illegal substance."
Besides the obvious "It's about time" retort to the inclusion of cannabis in the CAM listing, there is definitely more here to this decades-long story of the struggle between politics and science.
If the symptoms of cancer and the side effects from treatment can be ameliorated or fought-off with medical cannabis,
  • Wouldn't that be worth significant research investment?
  • And, wouldn't the value of that research increase considerably if cannabis therapeutically benefited people with an array of other medical conditions?
  • What if science showed that cannabis could halt or diminish the growth of tumors?
Unfortunately, despite promising studies on the effects of cannabis on tumor growth and a host of other scientific investigations into the therapeutic benefits of cannabis - mostly conducted outside of the United States - we have failed to rise to the occasion.
Cannabis used for research in the U.S. is tightly controlled by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the National Institutes on Drug Abuse (NIDA). The research that does occur is narrowly focused by NIDA on the supposed abuse potential of cannabis, bypassing vast areas of efficacy ripe for investigation.

In 2007, DEA Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Mary Ellen Bittner ruled in a case attempting to expand and diversify the production of research cannabis in the U.S. that such research was "in the public interest."
However, DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart ignored her own ALJ's recommendations and denied the petition that would have broken a 40-year old monopoly on federal research cannabis production, housed at the University of Mississippi. The federal monopoly on cannabis cultivation is complemented by a Byzantine approval process that would have made Franz Kafka proud.

With these tactics, the government has held a pretty tight lid on cannabis research over the years - an obstructionist's approach really. But prioritizing politics over science is a tenuous affair, full of contradictions and hypocrisy.

Take for instance the revisions NCI made to its website not two weeks after it listed cannabis as a Complementary Alternative Medicine.
Just to make sure its readers didn't think it was endorsing the use of medical cannabis, NCI reminded us that,
"The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved the use of Cannabis as a treatment for any medical condition..."
However, more importantly, NCI removed reference to a "possible direct antitumor effect."
They wouldn't want to give the impression that cannabis should be further researched, would they? After feeling some heat from mainstream media outlets, NCI offered an explanation for its apparent shiftiness around cannabis.
Craftily, NCI distanced itself from the Physician Data Query (PDQ) Editorial Boards, which are responsible for the website content (i.e. the content on cannabis).
"PDQ Editorial Boards review current evidence," and "do not make recommendations," said NCI in a written response.

"Their work is editorially independent of [NCI]," and "The summary on Cannabis and cannabinoids does not represent a policy statement of NCI or NIH (National Institutes of Health)."
Okay, this is where it gets interesting.

All of the government double-speak aside, the NCI website still states that cannabis has been used medicinally for millennia and that oncologists may recommend it for cancer "symptom management."
Pretty bold statements for a website, whether from an editorial department or not. Now, NCI happens to be one of 11 agencies within the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which is under the authority of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The problem is that HHS has consistently maintained that cannabis is a 'dangerous drug' with no medical value.
Specifically, HHS has publicly stated that cannabis,
"has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States."
The contradictions don't stop there.
The same production facility at the University of Mississippi that selectively disburses research cannabis also mails out literally pounds of the dried plant each year to the remaining four patients who qualified for the federal Investigational New Drug program.

The NCI website recognition also comes as a petition to reclassify medical cannabis has nearly reached its 10th anniversary with no response from the federal government.
Since the Coalition for Rescheduling Cannabis (CRC) filed its petition in 2002, dozens more studies have been conducted recognizing the therapeutic effects of cannabis, eight more states passed medical marijuana laws (bringing the total to 15), and the country's two largest physician groups - American Medical Association and American College of Physicians - have both called for a review of marijuana's status as a Schedule I substance.

Here is the chance for the federal government to come clean, recognize the evidence and reclassify cannabis so that patients in the U.S. can use it without fear of reprisal no matter where they live.
Yet, based on historical precedent, the cards are stacked against patients. In 1988, the DEA denied a rescheduling petition despite strong judicial condemnation of marijuana's Schedule I classification.
The DEA's own Administrative Law Judge Francis L. Young ruled on the petition, commenting that,
"Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man."
Although final determinations on rescheduling petitions are made by DEA, the review process relies heavily on recommendations from HHS, the federal department that oversees NCI.

Another lesser-known contradiction of federal cannabis policies has to do with the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) pill Marinol.
Though ineffective for many medical cannabis patients, Marinol will go off patent this year and a number of companies are vying for generic licenses. Companies are asking the government to allow them to grow cannabis in order to extract the natural form of THC, the primary active chemical in the plant used in the pill.
Marinol is currently made with synthetic THC, but it is cheaper to extract the chemical from the plant.

The hypocrisy will soon be too much for even the federal government to bear. The science on cannabis will eventually prevail over politics. It's just not acceptable to hold millions of sick Americans hostage to such a political double standard.
It's time for the Obama Administration to recognize the science, act with integrity, and reschedule cannabis.
