EXPOSED: Secret Vax Court

To protect Big Pharma from being overwhelmed with lawsuits over vaccine damage, the federal government gave THEM immunity and created “Office of Special Masters of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims”. It’s commonly known as “The Vaccine Court” but they don’t want you to know it exists, don’t want you to even know vaccines the harm, and the court is a kangaroo sham. Jeffrey Jaxen explains how the public is nevertheless awakening to the harm done by vaccines, especially HPV & Flu.

Some Thoughts for Vegetarian/Vegans Regarding Bone Broth - Bone Broth Benefits for Digestion, Arthritis and Cellulite

Update/something to consider: 'InfoWars' Pitchman Alex Jones Pushes Supplements With Dangerous Levels Of Lead - Lead Contamination in Bone Broth

First off, know that I am a bone broth drinking vegetarian (see also: Confessions of a bone broth drinking vegan) who very often points out that You Don't Need Meat to Be Big and Strong. Now some thoughts for all those compassionate vegans/vegetarians out there...

There are supposed bone broth substitutes for vegetarians and vegans, but please consider that those arguing that these options are the same or better, may very well be doing so because of their bias and cognitive dissonance. As can be seen in this reply to someone on a message board people get testy rather easily on this topic and put their feelings over facts...

Posted 02/07/2016
She's looking for options that fit her lifestyle, not a conversion.

She asked if there was a vegan substitute. There isn't really a good one. Veggie broth just isn't the same as a bone-based broth.

It is optimal to reassess your diet when you're experiencing health issues, regardless of where that leads her (for example, incorporating fermented veggies, water kefir, kombucha, and the vegan glutamine-rich foods may be something someone could consider in a situation with leaky gut who is vegan).

There are lots of aspects to healing a leaky gut, organ meats, fatty fish, bone broths, marrow and eggs are part of that process along with cooking veggies with fats, eating fermented foods and using probiotics and bitter herbs. Eliminating grains, legumes, dairy, sugar, food dyes, stress, etc is also important for healing the gut. No one is claiming this one aspect (bone broth)is the only thing to help leaky gut, but it's part of the picture. :)

Meat markets will often sell animal bones that they call cooking bones. If you buy these and make your own bone broth you can rest easy knowing that no animals were killed just to make your bone broth.
Even Ethical Vegans & Vegetarians Should Consider Drinking Bone Broth

Sam says he has a ton of respect for people who are vegan and vegetarian, especially due to consideration for animal rights. There are two things he thinks vegetarians and vegans should think about when considering bone broth. "Ninety-nine percent of America's meat is raised and killed in a way that's morally reprehensible, so the first thing is thinking about where you get your meat from — ideally, local farms where you know the way they're raised, and the conditions are humane," he says. "Secondly, most of the time if these bones aren't going to be used by someone like us in bone broth, they'll be discarded. Before bone broth was widely consumed, a lot of these parts just went to landfill and was wasted, so I like to think we're not contributing to significantly higher amounts of animals being killed."

Bone Broth Benefits for Digestion, Arthritis and Cellulite

Bone Broth Benefits - Dr.Axe
For thousands of years, there have been traditional foods like fermented vegetables and cultured dairy that have been touted for their health benefits. But one common healing food that is now being recognized for its incredible health benefits is bone broth. Why? Because bone broth benefits are numerous and extensive.
With that in mind, let me share a few ancient secrets with you on what makes bone broth benefits so remarkable.
Learn the healing powers of bone broth with this printable guide.

Bone Broth Benefits

I have found bone broth to be the No. 1 thing you can consume to:
  • Treat leaky gut syndrome
  • Overcome food intolerances and allergies
  • Improve joint health
  • Reduce cellulite
  • Boost immune system
Chicken soup isn’t just good for the soul: There’s a reason that it’s prescribed by doctors and mothers alike when you’re feeling under the weather. All bone broths — beef, chicken, fish, lamb and more — are staples in the traditional diets of every culture and the basis of all fine cuisine. That’s because bone broths are nutrient-dense, easy to digest, rich in flavor and they boost healing.
Bone broth or stock was a way our ancestors made use of every part of an animal. Bones and marrow, skin and feet, tendons and ligaments that you can’t eat directly can be boiled and then simmered over a period of days. This simmering causes the bones and ligaments to release healing compounds like collagen, proline, glycine and glutamine that have the power to transform your health.
Nutrition researchers Sally Fallon and Kaayla Daniel of the Weston A. Price Foundation explain that bone broths contain minerals in forms that your body can easily absorb: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and others. They contain chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine, the compounds sold as pricey supplements to reduce inflammation, arthritis and joint pain. (1)
A study of chicken soup (broth) conducted by the University of Nebraska Medical Center wondered what it was in the soup that made it so beneficial for colds and flu. Researchers found that the amino acids that were produced when making chicken stock reduced inflammation in the respiratory system and improved digestion. Also, research is proving it can also boost the immune system and heal disorders like allergies, asthma and arthritis. (2)
Fallon explains that most store-bought “stock and “broth” today aren’t “REAL.” Instead, companies use lab-produced meat flavors in bouillon cubes, soup and sauce mixes. Also, manufacturers began using monosodium glutamate (MSG), which is recognized as a meat flavor but in reality is a neurotoxin.
If you want real bone broth and real bone broth benefits, you can make it yourself at home, which I explain at the end of this article. You need to get grass-fed bones from your local farmers market or from a online health food store like Wise Choice Market.
Bone broth is a great place to find all of the valuable amino acids, collagen, gelatin and trace minerals. In fact, there are dozens of different nutrients found within bone broth, many of which can’t be obtained easily from other commonly eaten foods. That’s partly why there are so many incredible bone broth benefits.
By regularly drinking bone broth or using it in recipes, you can help promote healthy gut integrity while reducing  permeability and inflammation. Here are the six major bone broth benefits.
1. Protects Joints
Bone broth is one of world’s best sources of natural collagen, the protein found in vertebrae animals — in their bones, skin, cartilage, ligaments, tendons and bone marrow. As we get older, our joints naturally experience wear and tear, and we become less flexible.
Why does that matter? As we age, cartilage diminishes as it gets attacked by antibodies (age-related degradation of joint cartilage). As bone broth simmers, collagen from the animal parts leaches into the broth and becomes readily absorbable to help restore cartilage.
One of the most valuable components of bone broth is gelatin, which acts like a soft cushion between bones that helps them “glide” without friction. Gelatin also provides us with building blocks that are needed to form and maintain strong bones, helping take pressure off of aging joints and supporting heathy bone mineral density.
Research done by the Department of Nutrition and Sports Nutrition for Athletics at Penn State University found that when athletes supplemented with collagen over the course of 24 weeks, the majority showed significant improvements in joint comfort and a decrease in factors that negatively impacted athletic performance. (3)

2. Good for the Gut
Studies show that gelatin is beneficial for restoring strength of the gut lining and fighting food sensitivities (such as to wheat or dairy), helping with the growth of probiotics (good bacteria) in the gut, and supporting healthy inflammation levels in the digestive tract. A report published in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology found that gelatin effectively supports intestinal health and integrity. (4)
Bone broth is easily digested and soothing to the digestive system, unlike many other foods, which can be difficult to fully break down. After all, a food is really only useful if we have the means of absorbing its nutrients.
Studies have found that in individuals with digestive imbalances, serum concentrations of collagen are decreased. (5) Because the amino acids in collagen build the tissue that lines the colon and entire GI tract, supplementing with collagen can support healthy digestive function.
3. Maintains Healthy Skin
Collagen helps form elastin and other compounds within skin that are responsible for maintaining skin’s youthful tone, texture and appearance. Collagen integrity is accredited with helping reduce the visible signs of wrinkles, decreasing puffiness and fighting various other signs of aging. Many people report a decrease in cellulite when consuming foods and supplements containing collagen, since cellulite forms due to a lack of connective tissue, allowing skin to lose its firm tone.
Double-blind, placebo-controlled studies investigating the age-defending properties of collagen have found that 2.5–5 grams of collagen hydrolysate (CH) used among women aged 35–55 once daily for eight weeks supports skin elasticity, skin moisture, transepidermal water loss (dryness) and skin roughness. At the end of only four weeks, those using collagen showed a statistically significant improvement in comparison to those using a placebo with regard to skin moisture and skin evaporation, plus noticeable decreases in signs of accelerated aging, all with little to no side effects. (6)
4. Supports Immune System Function
One of the most remarkable things about bone broth is its gut-supportive benefits, which as described above actually have a holistic effect on the body and support healthy immune system function.
Leaky gut occurs when undigested particles from foods seep through tiny openings in the weakened intestinal lining and enter the bloodstream, where the immune system detects them and becomes hyperactive. This increases inflammation and leads to dysfunctions all over, as the immune system releases high levels of antibodies that cause an autoimmune-like response and attack healthy tissue.
Bone broth is one of the most beneficial foods to consume to restore gut health and therefore support immune system function and healthy inflammation response. Collagen/gelatin and the amino acids proline, glutamine and arginine help seal these openings in the gut lining and support gut integrity. Traditionally made bone broths are believed to support healthy inflammatory response and normal immune system function. (78) Bone broth can even promote healthy sleep, boost energy during the day and support a healthy mood.
5. Boosts Detoxification
Today in the Western world, the average person is exposed to an array of environmental toxins, pesticides, artificial ingredients and chemicals of all sorts. While the human body has its own means of detoxifying itself from heavy metals and other toxic exposures, it often has a hard time keeping up when flooded with an overwhelming amount of chemicals. Bone broth is considered a powerful detoxification agent since it helps the digestive system expel waste and promotes the liver’s ability to remove toxins, helps maintain tissue integrity, and improves the body’s use of antioxidants.
Bone broth contains potassium and glycine, which support both cellular and liver detoxification.
Some of the ways in which bone broth boosts detoxification is by supplying sulfur (especially when you add veggies, garlic and herbs to your broth) and glutathione, which is a phase II detoxification agent that lowers oxidative stress. Stanford University’s Medicine Preventative Research Center has found that glutathione helps with elimination of fat-soluble compounds, especially heavy metals like mercury and lead. It also helps with the absorption of various nutrients, the use of antioxidants and with liver-cleansing functions. (9) Bone broth also increases intake of essential minerals, which act like chelators to remove toxins by stopping heavy metals from attaching to mineral receptor sites.
6. Aids the Metabolism and Promotes Anabolism
Bone broth is a great way to obtain more glutathione, which studies show plays important roles in antioxidant defense, nutrient metabolism and regulation of cellular events. A 2004 study published in the Journal of Nutrition states that glutathione’s roles and benefits include regulating gene expressions, DNA and protein synthesis, cell proliferation and apoptosis, signal transduction, cytokine production, and immune responses. (10)
Amino acids found in bone broth have numerous metabolic roles, including building and repairing muscle tissue, supporting bone mineral density, boosting nutrient absorption and synthesis, and maintaining muscle and connective tissue health. Glycine found within collagen helps form muscle tissue by converting glucose into useable energy, plus it slows cartilage, tissue and muscle loss associated with aging by improving the body’s use of antioxidants. Studies have revealed that glycine protects skeletal muscle loss and stops the expression of genes associated with age-related muscle protein breakdown. (11)
Glutamine is another amino acid that’s important for a healthy metabolism, since it helps us maintain energy by sending nutrients, including nitrogen, to our cells. Arginine also has the role of breaking down nitric oxide that helps improve circulation and sends blood and nutrients to cells throughout the body, improving muscle and tissue integrity and promoting normal wound healing.

Bone Broth Nutrition

Bone broth could be called “nature’s multivitamin.” How so exactly? It’s packed with:
  • over 19 easy-to-absorb, essential and non-essential amino acids (the building blocks of proteins)
  • collagen/gelatin, which help form connective tissue
  • nutrients that support digestive functions, immunity and brain health
Did you get that? Bone broth benefits literally every part of your body, from your gut to your brain, from your muscles to your ligaments.
It’s also relatively low in calories yet very high in minerals and other chemical compounds that many people are lacking. There’s no doubt that bone broth makes a great everyday addition to your diet.
Here are six of the key nutritional compounds found in bone broth that help provide all these wonderful bone broth benefits.
1. Glycosaminoglycans (GAG)
Glycosaminoglycans have the primary role of maintaining and supporting collagen and elastin that take up the spaces between bones and various fibers. GAGs are supportive for digestive health since they help restore the intestinal lining, which is why a deficiency in these nutrients has been linked to digestive challenges. (12)
Several important GAGs are found in bone broth, including glucosamine, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate.
2. Glucosamine
There are two main types of naturally occurring glucosamine: hydrochloride and sulfate. Both help keep up the integrity of cartilage, which is the rubbery substance within joints that acts like a natural cushion. Studies show that glucosamine can become depleted as we get older, so supplements are often used to support joint health.
An easy and relatively inexpensive way to obtain glucosamine naturally is from drinking more bone broth, which helps support the loss of cartilage health, acting as an alternative to pricey glucosamine supplements. (13) Consuming more glucosamine can help support joint health, flexibility and comfort.
3. Hyaluronic Acid
Found throughout connective, epithelial (skin) and neural tissues, hyaluronic acid contributes to cell proliferation, differentiation and mitigation, allowing our cells to perform various functions throughout the body as needed. It offers support for multiple skin types and promotes healthy aging, cell rejuvenation and skin firmness. (14)
4. Chondroitin Sulfate
Chondroitin sulfate is a beneficial glycosaminoglycan found in the cartilage within the joints of all animals. It’s often used to support joint health and comfort, especially in combination with glucosamines.
Studies have found that supplementing with chondroitin supports healthy inflammation response as well as cardiovascular health, bone health, skin health and healthy cholesterol levels. (15)
5. Minerals and Electrolytes
Bone broth provides essential minerals, including electrolytes, all provided in an easy-to-absorb form. Electrolytes found within bone broth include calcium, magnesium and potassium (not to mention many other minerals, such as phosphorus), which are important for supporting healthy circulation, bone density, nerve signaling functions, heart health and digestive health. When added sodium levels are kept low, bone broth contains an ideal balance of sodium and potassium to support cellular health and efficiency.
6. Collagen
Collagen is the main structural protein found within the human body that helps form connective tissue and “seals” the protective lining of the gastrointestinal tract. It’s also the gel-like, smooth structure that covers and holds our bones together, allowing us to glide and move freely.
Irritation within the gut that impairs normal digestive functions and causes permeability, allowing particles to pass into the bloodstream, known as leaky gut.
As a rich source of gelatin, bone broth protects and seals the mucosal lining of the GI tract, which means it improves nutrient absorption and also helps keep particles from leaching out where they shouldn’t be.

Bone Broth Benefits: The Magic of Collagen and Gelatin

Real collagen is the source of stock’s immune-boosting properties. You’ve probably seen this jiggling layer atop the broth in your cooling roasting pan and discarded it, but think again next time — this is the good stuff that provides many of the bone broth benefits available.
Collagen is the protein found in connective tissue of vertebrate animals. It’s abundant in bone, marrow, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. The breakdown of collagen in bone broths is what produces gelatin.
Gelatin (the breakdown of collagen) was one of the first functional foods used as a medical treatment in ancient China. Dr. Francis Pottenger and other world-class researches have found gelatin and collagen to have the listed benefits:
  • Gelatin helps people with food allergies and sensitivities tolerate those foods, including cow’s milk and gluten.
  • Collagen protects and soothes the lining of the digestive tract and can aid in healing IBS, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis and acid reflux symptoms.
  • Gelatin promotes probiotic balance and growth.
  • Bone broth increases collagen, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and banishing cellulite.
  • Because gelatin helps break down proteins and soothes the gut lining, it may prove useful for leaky gut syndrome and the autoimmune disorders that accompany it.
  • Gelatin provides bone-building minerals in easily absorbable ways, preventing bone loss and reducing join pain. (16)
Here is another incredible benefit from the collagen found in bone broth: It can make your skin look amazing! According to Donna Gates, author of “Body Ecology,” bone broth benefits you skin because it makes it supple and can decrease cellulite!
She says cellulite comes from a lack of connective tissue, and if someone has very smooth skin, it’s because the skin is high in connective tissue. Gates explains that consuming collagen-rich bone broth can reduce cellulite and tighten your skin, making you look younger — adding it to the long list of bone broth benefits.

Bone Broth Benefits: Healing Amino Acids

Gelatin in bone broths contains “conditional” amino acidsarginine, glycine, glutamine and proline. These amino acids also contribute to stock’s healing properties.
Conditional amino acids are those classified as nonessential amino acids that are essential under some conditions. You don’t produce them very well if you are ill or stressed. Kaayla Daniel points out that unhealthy Western diets, heavy on processed carbohydrates, low in quality grass-fed animal products, and devoid of homemade soups and broths, make it likely that these amino acids are chronically essential.
What do these conditional amino acids do? (17)
  • Necessary for immune system function and wound healing
  • Needed for the production and release of growth hormone
  • Helps regenerate damaged liver cells
  • Needed for the production of sperm
  • Prevents breakdown of protein tissue like muscle
  • Used to make bile salts and glutathione
  • Helps detoxify the body of chemicals and acts as antioxidant (18)
  • Is a neurotransmitter that improves sleep and improves memory and performance
  • Helps regenerate cartilage and heal joints
  • Reduces cellulite and makes skin more supple
  • Helps repair leaky gut
  • Protects gut lining
  • Metabolic fuel for cells in small intestine
  • Improves metabolism and muscle building
Talk about some incredible bone broth benefits! For these reasons, I have most of my patients consume bone broth as a partial fast, detox or during meals to help heal their guts and detoxify their cells, gut and liver.

How to Make Bone Broth

There are a few important basics to consider when making good stock. You can make bone broth with animal components alone, but in his chicken soup study, Dr. Rennard found that the combination of animal products and vegetables seemed to have synergistic effects, working together to be more beneficial than either alone.
Cup of Fresh BrothFallon says that it’s important to use body parts that aren’t commonly found in the meat department of your grocery store, things like chicken feet and neck.
You also want to buy animal products that you know are pasture-fed and free of antibiotics and hormones in order to truly unlock all the bone broth benefits.
Fallon describes the essentials as bones, fat, meat, vegetables and water. If you’re making beef broth or lamb broth, you should brown the meat before putting it into a stock pot. Fish and poultry are fine to put in a pot without browning first. Add a bit of apple cider vinegar to your pot to help draw the minerals from the bones.
Cooking Suggestions
  1. Place bones into a large stock pot and cover with water.
  2. Add two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to water prior to cooking. This helps to pull out important nutrients from the bones.
  3. Fill stock pot with filtered water. Leave plenty of room for water to boil.
  4. Heat slowly. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer for at least six hours. Remove scum as it arises.
  5. Cook slow and at low heat. Chicken bones can cook for 24 hours. Beef bones can cook for 48 hours. A low and slow cook time is necessary in order to fully extract the nutrients in and around the bone.
  6. You can also add in vegetables, such as onions, garlic, carrots and celery, for added nutrient value.
After cooking, the broth will cool and a layer of fat will harden on top. This layer protects the broth beneath. Discard this layer only when you are about to eat the broth.
Check out my recipes on how to make Chicken Bone Brothand Beef Bone Broth.

Final Thoughts on Bone Broth Benefits

Remember, bone broth is rich in minerals that support the immune system and contains healing compounds like collagen, glutamine, glycine and proline.
The collagen in bone broth heals your gut lining and reduces intestinal inflammation. In addition, collagen supports healthy skin and can reduce the appearance of cellulite. Also, the glycine in bone broth can detoxify your cells from chemicals and improve brain function.
I recommend consuming eight ounces one to two times daily as a soup, a plain beverage or doing a bone broth fast to get all these wonderful bone broth benefits. I typically drink eight ounces upon waking every morning.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson publicly endorses core philosophy of Natural News: Follow the evidence; question everything

Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of (See all articles...)

(NaturalNews) As a long-time fan of the sciences, I was thrilled to see the re-launch of the Cosmos series this past week, starring Neil DeGrasse Tyson as the host. I was an enthusiastic fan of the original 1980 Cosmos series starring Carl Sagan, and I grew up steeped in the study of the natural sciences.

Perhaps that's why I was especially delighted to hear Neil DeGrasse Tyson announce -- in the first few minutes of the new Cosmosseries -- "Follow the evidence wherever it leads, and question everything."

That is, of course, the core philosophy of Natural News. It has been the driving force behind this organization's informed skepticism of mercury in vaccines, mercury in dentistry, fluoride in public water and the ecological safety of genetically engineered food crops. It turns out that if you really "follow the evidence wherever it leads," as Tyson rightly encourages us to do, you inevitably come to find that much of what is promoted and propagandized as "scientific" in the modern world is actually based on distorted, corporate-funded anti-science profit agendas rather than genuine science.

Copernicus and Natural News both fight anti-science dogmas

My work here at Natural News is steeped in cutting-edge science. Today, I run an atomic spectroscopy laboratory conducting elemental analysis as part of my food science research. The instrumentation here rivals that of many universities, and I personally conduct all the research myself, operating ICP-MS instrumentation and practicing high-level analytical chemistry.

As Natural News fans already know, I am the first person to have discovered and published findings of the heavy metal tungsten in popular rice protein dietary supplements. I've also conducted popular physics demonstrations in the interests of public education such as this video showing how you can lift Wheaties cereal flakes with ordinary magnets due to the metal fragments (iron oxides) intentionally added to Wheaties cereals under the bizarre explanation that iron shavings "fortify" the cereal with nutrition.

Continuing in these scientific endeavors, I am in the process of authoring numerous scientific papers on breakthrough food science research, and I will soon be publishing truly pioneering information about heavy metals in popular herbal supplements. I'm also the first person to have announced the discovery and formulation of a dietary supplement formula which can selectively bind with radioactive cesium-137 isotopes in the gastrointestinal tract.

During this entire process of conducting scientific investigations into natural products and "superfoods," I have come face to face with many dogmas of the natural products industry, where many people believe bizarre myths about nutrition and detox which simply have no rational basis in fact. Part of my mission as a food science researcher, in fact, is to educate people to think more clearly and rationally about nutrition, superfoods and dietary supplements. Like Tyson, I am an opponent of "fuzzy thinking" and a strong advocate of clear, informed thinking.

But as a rare person who is willing to ask the really big questions -- and follow the evidence wherever it leads, as Tyson says -- I also from time to time run into dogmatic vaccine zealots who are no less anti-scientific than some of the more bizarre "voodoo science" detox supplement proponents.

As such, in much the same way that Galileo fought against the faith-based dogma of the Church and its heliocentric mythology of the universe, today Natural News fights against dangerous dogmas and false "scientific" delusions perpetrated under the distorted label of "science." If you really follow the evidence on mercury in vaccines, for example, there is no scientifically justifiable rationale for injecting pregnant women with mercury at any dose. Yet this action is precisely what is currently -- and aggressively -- demanded by the "scientific" community, in what history will ultimately be forced to admit is a great betrayal of the People by delusional science conducted primarily in the interests of corporate power rather than public health.

Mercury fillings harm children in the name of science

If you follow the evidence on mercury fillings -- deceptively called "silver amalgams" in order to disguise their elemental composition -- you cannot help but conclude that mercury has no place in the mouths of children. Not only do mercury fillings release mercury vapor during and immediately following chewing; they are also made of a vastly inferior material which causes routine fracturing and cracking of teeth, necessitating the frequent restoration of those teeth to the financial benefit of the same dentists who installed the faulty mercury fillings in the first place.

While mercury fillings are terrible for the patient and contribute a huge toxic burden to children, they are amazing revenue generators for dentists who operate on the "drill, fill and bill" philosophy of medicine. If it makes money, it must be good for you.

Click here to listen to my important interview with Dr. Chris Shade, a top mercury detox scientist, who explains the toxicity of mercury in all its chemical and elemental forms.

The ultimate science skeptics

As someone who is rationally skeptical about the bizarre claims of promoters of mercury in vaccines and mercury in dentistry, I am part of a growing group of true science skeptics who embody the real meaning of the term "skepticism."

I am skeptical of the bizarre idea once explained to me by a dentist who said that when mercury is found on the table of elements, it is extremely toxic and deadly to biology, but that once it is installed in the mouth of a child, it is magically and suddenly biologically inert and poses no heath risks whatsoever. This explanation smacks of some sort of irrational "voodoo science" or a self-deluded belief system rather than valid fact.

According to modern dentists, mercury fillings are harmless solely because they wish them to be harmless. Much the same is true for those promoting vaccines. Mercury in vaccines is good for you because they hope that mercury is harmless and has no links to autism. They hope this so much that their defense of their own distortions has become the very sort of dogma that discredits real science. They have become, in effect, the "Church of Scientism" which dismisses all those who question their beliefs and which disregards all evidence contrary to their fundamentalist beliefs.

As such, modern-day "science" has, in many ways, become the very same Church that Galileo fought against in the 1600's. Modern "science" is a dogmatic, unforgiving Church which allows no dissent, no intelligent discourse and no questioning of its core beliefs about vaccines, mercury, fluoride, GMOs or pharmaceuticals. Anyone who dares to stand up like Galileo and state a simple, undeniable truth is immediately and forever branded a heretic on websites like Wikipedia, the modern-day thought police of the 'net and a site which is essentially run by scientific fundamentalists who practice precisely the same sort of ruthless censorship and oppression carried out by the Catholic Church during the Middle Ages.

My public challenge to Neil DeGrasse Tyson

All this helps explain why I have decided to politely but firmly issue a public challenge to Neil DeGrasse Tyson. I am curious to find out whether Tyson is a genuine scientist or a "scientific fundamentalist."

For the record, I like Tyson. I think he's incredibly well educated and a fantastic communicator. In fact, I'm a fan of his interviews on programs like NOVA, and looking back over the years, I've always enjoyed Tyson's ability to explain complex concepts of astrophysics to a mainstream audience. His recent work in Cosmos, although clearly scripted word for word, is nonetheless commendable and I truly honor his dedication to his quest for the expansion of human knowledge.

This is why I am not attacking Tyson but rather challenging him to take a closer look at the issue of mercury in modern medicine. My challenge is thus:

Neil DeGrasse Tyson, will you publicly denounce the use of mercury in medicine and join the growing call for mercury-free medicine?

Click here to learn more about mercury-free medicine at CoMeD.

Importantly, note that such a position does not require any sort of denouncement of the theory of immunization, nor any denouncement of the practice of modern dentistry. It only calls for the elimination of an extremely toxic substance and its replacement with safer substances.

Why mercury-free medicine is the sanity test for modern scientists

Mercury-free medicine, you see, is the "sanity litmus test" for all present-day scientists. There is no debate whatsoever about the toxicity of mercury in mammalian biology. Every form of mercury -- ethyl, methyl, organic, inorganic and elemental -- is toxic to humans, and in truth, even the ethyl mercury used in vaccines is far more toxic than methyl mercury once it passes through cell walls, as is explained by Dr. Chris Shade in our interview, above.

Any scientists who openly endorses the practice of injecting pregnant women and children with mercury at any dose is, of course, a "scientific fundamentalist" and a fraud. Such a position is practically an announcement that the person is a stooge for the vaccine industry and the commercial interests of the American Dental Association, which owns patents on -- and continues to collect royalties from -- the manufacture of mercury fillings which poison tens of millions of Americans.

Genuinely stated, I really want to know whether Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a true man of science or a scientific fundamentalist. As a person who now presents the story of those who stood up to the Church to denounce the heliocentric view of the universe, Tyson occupies a unique position -- with unique responsibilities -- to practice what he preaches. In Cosmos, he encourages us all to "Follow the evidence wherever it leads, and question everything." Yet we must ask: Is Neil DeGrasse Tyson willing to do that himself? Will he follow the trail of evidence of significant harm linked to mercury in vaccines (and mercury in dentistry) and honor the laws of biochemistry and physics by publicly endorsing mercury-free medicine? Or will he sell his soul to the fundamentalist zealots of modern "scientific" medicine who poison children with mercury and attack all those who question the safety of such a toxin?

How will history remember Tyson? As a dogmatic zealot, or a true man of science?

If Tyson dismisses this issue or announces he is in favor of mercury injections of pregnant women and children, then he will of course go down in history as a betrayer of the very scientific principles he claims to espouse. The era of mercury in vaccines and mercury in dentistry is fast coming to a close, and history will look upon all those "scientists" who promoted mercury in much the same way we currently look upon bumbling doctors of the 1800's who encouraged people to inhale mercury vapors or consume mercury salts as "treatments" for disease.

They were quacks, we now know. And it is an undeniable scientific truth that every scientist who today promotes mercury in vaccines and mercury in dentistry is also a quack. I state this undeniable truth with the same confidence and courage that Copernicus once exhibited as he wrote that the Earth orbited the sun and not the other way around. Even if the entire modern "scientific" community attempts to claim that mercury is harmless when injected into pregnant women, they remain wholly wrong despite their numbers, and their distortions contradict physical and biological reality. Just as much as the Church was wrong to imprison early astronomers, modern-day "science" is wrong to promote the injection of pregnant women and children with mercury.

The very nature of the table of elements, in fact, supports my position of mercury-free medicine, meaning I do not even have to be "right" myself because I have the full power of the laws of physics and chemistry to back me up. For some misguided scientist to claim that "mercury is harmless" is no less foolish than a person following "The Secret" to sit in a room and wish for material wealth to magically appear simply because they believe the so-called "Law of Attraction" will bring them whatever material items they choose to focus upon. Both beliefs are purely delusional. One is steeped in "science" and the other in distortions of popularized (but distorted) New Age thinking. Yet they are both false. Mercury is harmful to human biology at almost any dose -- even at just a few micrograms injected into the tissue of a child -- and there is no rational basis from which to argue otherwise.

Those who irrationally argue that mercury is safe are genuinely delusional, regardless of their scientific training or academic credentials. A PhD does not confer magic powers to a vaccine promoter to nullify the biochemical effects of mercury, it turns out. And as much as Richard Dawkins asks whether you "believe in magic" on various philosophical questions, very nearly the entire scientific community really does believe in magic when it comes to mercury in vaccines and dentistry. They believe their magical thinking casts a "spell of nullification" upon all mercury, rendering it inert.

That's why it is time that we, the growing members of the mercury-free medicine movement began to lay down the historical record of which modern-day scientists support mercury-free medicine and which ones wish to destroy their own historical credibility by endorsing mercury injections of pregnant women.

Help Natural News pose this genuine challenge to Neil DeGrasse Tyson

I would ask for your help in posing this question to Tyson by politely asking for an answer on his facebook page:

Note, by the way, that his Facebook page has 970,000 likes, while Natural News has over 1.1 million likes. We are both very popular figures, and we both have enormous followings. There is truth to be found in both our philosophies, and we are both well-meaning people who only seek to help humanity gain understanding and expand our knowledge of the universe. This is why I can admire Tyson as an individual even if he has yet to fully awaken to the scientific truth about mercury in medicine. I will admire him even more once he publicly endorses mercury-free medicine and thereby cements his reputation as a true critical thinker and not a fundamentalist stooge.

You may also help bring attention to this issue by linking to the new Natural News page on Tyson, using the words "Neil DeGrasse Tyson" in your link, while linking to this page on

Finally, please proceed with civility and professionalism in any interactions with Tyson's fans. Please understand that many who promote vaccines are, themselves, damaged by mercury in vaccines and thus their cognitive faculties are not fully intact. As heavy metals poisoning is well known to cause insanity and violent tendencies, we must proceed with compassion, understanding that many of these people are victims of mercury in vaccines and in many ways they cannot help their own violent outbursts. At all times, conduct yourself with professionalism and compassion for those harmed by vaccines. Remember, we are the good guys who are saving humanity from the grave mistakes of science gone awry. As such, we must adhere to core ethics and values which honor life and treat people with dignity, even if they are brain damaged by vaccines.

Why we should polite invite Neil DeGrasse Tyson to join the call for mercury-free medicine in the interests of protecting humanity

Keep in mind that Neil DeGrasse Tyson is not a rude person, and he is not the enemy of the mercury-free medicine movement. He is a bright person who simply needs to be awakened to this issue of mercury-free medicine. I am optimistic that he may very well endorse this very position and possibly even thank us for bringing it to his attention.

Even if he does not, I wish him no harm and only hope that his ever-expanding mind will one day be expansive enough to grasp the idea that injecting mercury into human bodies is, in every way, a genuine crime against children and a crime against humanity. History will not treat him kindly if he does not sooner or later denounce mercury as a harmful ingredient in vaccines and dentistry, especially now that this issue has been brought to his attention in such a public manner.

Finally, as a personal note to Tyson, the next time you are in Austin, I would be happy to interview you in person for a polite, in-depth conversation or even a debate on these points.

Do not accept fuzzy thinking about mercury in vaccines

"I'm optimistic. I see no longer people accepting fuzzy thinking in the world. The change is not that people aren't still saying under-informed things. The change is that if you're in power and you say something under-informed, there are people out there with a voice who will take you to task for having done so," -- Neil DeGrasse Tyson, "A Conversation about Communicating Science". (The Science Network) January 20, 2011.

Indeed, Mr. Tyson, we are that voice to which you refer, and we will politely but firmly take you to task if you remain under-informed on this issue of mercury in medicine. While various isotopes of mercury may have indeed been created in the explosions of stars, such elements have no place in the bodies of the very children we both hope will carry humanity to the stars. Indeed, if we hope to protect their brains, their fertility and their futures, we must eliminate toxic mercury from their medicine.

Anything less is a betrayal of humanity and an abandonment of scientific principles.
