Investigations in Belgian hospitals revealed that about 60% of doctors and medical personnel in hospitals are NOT vaccinated against the flu (source: VTM-news). What does that mean? That the very staff vaccinating the people don’t believe in it themselves or find it dangerous for their own health, right? Don’t tell us that they are not “aware” of the “necessity”. Of course the government want this to change. So does the big pharma industry, as we can imagine …
The world is full of “cases” where people got proved health damage from vaccinations. Why are governments never mentioning this? They call it safe and promote it indefinitely to the people. Besides, there is a lot of doubt about efficiency of vaccinations also.

As more and more studies confirm, the gut is of the utmost importance to our overall health and immune system. And there is a lot of work to do, because millions of people suffer from gut diseases like candida, Crohn’s disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), diarrhea, ulcerative colitis and more. And how many other diseases will eventually prove to have their starting point in the problematic gut? I guess this will be one of the most important health issues of the coming decennia.
At the same time we do know and most doctors will agree that the use of antibiotics is destroying the health (good bacteria) of the gut lining.
Probiotics become more accepted to help repair problematic gut conditions. The most natural way to heal the gut appears to be by diet. There are fermented foods like organic sauerkraut, miso, tempeh, lassi, etc., containing a lot of natural probiotics.
A remarkable person who went literally through this whole problem field and cured herself the natural way is Jini Patel, who wrote a complete program to cure gut diseases. She figured out specific diets for well defined gut conditions including sample menus and reference guides. A lot of real life examples are featured. The program consists of a book, a DVD with all the information you need to take action and get your gut back on track, like treatment plans, candida test, a food diary, printable charts, diets, etc. If you suffer from any gut related illness, this is a must read as far as I’m concerned. I went through it and found it really worthwhile. So, I became an affiliate of them. If you like getting more information, click this link to the official site of the Listen To Your Gut Program.
Please let me know by your comments below (no need to login) what you think of it and what your experiences are on the road to good gut health, the natural way.
Actually it’s probably less than 10% but we’ll never know exactly.
The problem with most science is that it is based on these ideas that we consider false:
- that one can only be sure of facts that are measurable
- that one can measure everything with existing equipment
- that one can only be sure of facts that are repeatable
- that ultimate truth exists
- that material and spirit are two different things
- that one gets objective, genuine results from industry sponsored research
- that something is impossible if it doesn’t fit in known theories
- that one can fool nature without understanding holistic laws
- that making disappear symptoms is curing desease
- that the doctor knows best and the patient be patient, shut their mouth and just obey
- that food should be different from medication
- that using chemicals that are isolated from their natural context will not destroy the body and health
I’ll never forget the argument of a philosopher, called Etienne Vermeersch, in a discussion about metaphysics on a national TV channel. He stated:
It cannot be true because it is impossible.
That is how a lot of scientists think. Isn’t this arrogant? It is costing a lot of lives, because therefore many good therapies are banned from hospitals and insurance, while they have proved to work. Read the rest of this entry »
Many years ago I used to deal a lot with the macrobiotic diet, once introduced by Georges Ohsawa from Japan, who died of a heart attack. The big question is whether it is beneficial for our health. Nowadays a lot of these points turned out to be not so healthy in my opinion. The main points that are at least food for discussion:
- Drink less and drink only when you are thirsty <— recent studies show that a lot of people don’t drink enough, elderly in particular, and drinking more (good) water is beneficial in general.
- Eat mostly grains <— it turns out that these grains, and particularly wheat, have foodstuffs in them as a defense by nature, to slow down digestion and lots of people have difficulties digesting the gluten in the grains.
- Use a lot of sea salt <— sea salt contains much more minerals than “kitchen salt”, but at the same time it is important to keep the work of the kidneys within moderate levels, without too much sea salt.
- Every kind of food can be put on a scale of yin and yang and used accordingly <— well, the world appears to be much more complicated than yin and yang. You can’t say this condition or that food is more yin or yang, because they are very complicated combinations and this simplistic yin-yang taxonomy just isn’t enough to be useful.
So after all, we learned a lot about healthy diets and personally dismissed this macrobiotic diet. Judge for yourself though. Nevertheless it’s quite possible that people increased their health with macrobiotics, because if you are living the average way of life with heaps of refined sugar, unhealthy fats, coke, beer, additives, meat, non-organic food, etc., any change in diet will be an improvement.
What are your experiences with macrobiotics? Your comments are much appreciated.
After investigations, it is now clear that a lot of barrels from a nuclear plant in Belgium, are leaking nuclear waste.
No problem, the officials from Niras (official nuclear waste organization) say. It is low-activity radioactive waste. But the parliament of Belgium is not pleased with this situation.
The nuclear plant at Doel in the North of Belgium, is not allowed to send these barrels to anywhere anymore, until the problem is solved. And there doesn’t seem to be a solution at this moment. Many of these barrels have a gel leaking out.
And also, in the eighties, these kind of barrels were just dumped into the ocean(!) and now questions arise about what the conditions of them could be at this moment.
Avastin®, used with breast cancer chemotherapy, is now finally banned in Belgium too, by the College for Oncology. Apparently this poisonous drug has no beneficial results but causes side effects, like bleedings, blood clots, stomach and intestine perforations.
On top of that, it costs the patient about 50.000 €. That said Mattias Neyt (KCE) on Belgium Television VRT.
In the US, this drug was banned already in 2011.
So one can ask if this is normal. Using a drug that is poisoning already sick people, while it doesn’t help and even makes them more sick. A known fact for two years. While there are so many natural therapies, that go after the source of cancer.
That seems to be a real demonstration of how things work in mainstream medicine.
As a side-note: this news was read out on national TV by the news anchor Martine Tanghe, who herself suffered from that disease in 2012. What are you thinking now, Martine?

On May 30th 2011, a group of activists destroyed a field with genetically modified potatoes in Belgium. The university of Ghent was testing modified plants with permission of the Belgian government.
A few days later a scientist of another university K.U.L. was fired, just for explaining motives of the action to the press. This triggered a new protest action and petition against these university measures.
One can ask the question though if this is the best way to try to stop GMO experiments, because the university now has decided to go on and to even take measurements for doing these experiments in secret in the future. Of course some farmers Read the rest of this entry »
This map on the Safecast site is not meant as a replacement for government or nuclear agencies.
Their hope is that data sets from various places can provide additional context to the official statements in these rapidly changing events.
They are open for improvement and for input from anywhere to make their maps more accurate.
We are looking for something similar for the whole world. If you know about a good crowd sourced radiation world map, please let us know in the comments. Thanks.
Although clicking the map doesn’t seem to work at this time, we couldn’t keep this interesting map of Japan radiation levels from you. Blue circles are bigger for more inhabitants, red is more radiation. Purple is unavailable.
This map is for information only, not for safety measures!
Watch the big version of Japan radiation map in a new window.
Realtime radiation data (but NOT UPDATED regularly! – watch the date!) collected via the System for Prediction of Environment Emergency Dose Information(SPEEDI). These results are maximum values made available by local government on the latest updated date and time.
What do you think about the accuracy of these data?
Please leave your comments. No login required.
Although this interesting chart made for the rest of us, can seem to be complicated at first sight, you should give it a try. It’s actually very easy to understand. Just start reading on top left at the blue squares, then to the greens on top right and then the red ones. It’s giving us a very good idea of how much radiation is coming from everything, from a banana to a nuclear reactor meltdown. Thanks to Randall Munroe & co, this can serve the health of humanity.
This radiation dose chart is for general education use only, not for safety procedures!
The picture is in the public domain, so you can republish it without restriction.
Wishing all the best and strong health to the people of Japan

Aspartame (brands: Nutrasweet®, Aminosweet®) or neotame? Several names for artificial sweeteners, but what difference does the name make, since they are all based on the same aspartic acid. Some are even more poisonous than others though.
But after so many bad reports about neurotoxic and immunotoxic health problems with aspartame (E951), they needed another name. Well, Neotame (E961) appears to be even more toxic because it’s “enhanced aspartame”. We can think that easily because it’s between 7.000 and 13.000 times sweeter than table sugar. My sweetness. Sounds healthy? Moreover, the problem with reports is that they are mostly funded by the industry and in case of negative results, funds are often retracted.
Neotame is also used (as Sweetos) to camouflage the taste of “less fresh” animal food, so that cattle is eating it nevertheless. Read the rest of this entry »
Olivier De Schutter, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, found out that the best way to solve global hunger is the agroecological approach.
That means agroforestry, mixed crop-livestock, biological pest control, intercropping, etc.
This is totally against the domination of food production by Monsanto and the likes, who are trying to force agriculture using their GMO seeds (claimed as intellectual property) and having about 50% of this market in their pocket already.
As Olivier De Schutter sees it, on the long run, agroecological farming techniques outperform modern mass production farming schemes, which are about genetically improved seeds, chemical fertilizers and extended use of machinery.
He brings together scientists, policymakers and farmers organizations to figure recommendations to the Committee on World Food Security.
How to get a HPV vaccination score from ± 40 % coverage to ± 90 % of the twelve year old girls? Make it free and bring it to the schools. This is what is being announced in Flanders, the North part of Belgium. While there are a lot of adverse reports on the long term risks and even those immediately after vaccination. From Guillian-Barre-syndrome and loss of consciousness to permanent disability. It’s all there. But as always, no questions asked and focus is on the battle against cervical cancer instead of how to be healthy without pharmaceuticals.
Let’s hope parents inform themselves seriously before they act as the big pharma industry dictates.
This is good journalism. Thanks ITV. How is it possible that millions of people get this poison into their mouth? Poison? Yes. Amalgam fillings are about 50% mercury, which is one of the most poisonous things in the world. You can’t put mercury into the environment, but you can put it in your mouth? What a world. In some countries it is perfectly legal, while in other countries (Sweden, …) amalgam fillings are completely banned. Not everyone gets problems immediately after placement of silver fillings, but how many proof do we need, to know that mercury comes out of the fillings, sooner or later damaging our health?

“Twelve hundred years ago the people of Tibet developed a comprehensive medical system. They understood how the mind affects the body. They knew subtle ways of changing the body’s chemistry with medicines made from plants and minerals. They blessed their medicines in lengthy rituals. And they encoded this knowledge in a series of elaborate paintings called thangkas. Blue Buddha: Lost Secrets of Tibetan Medicine traces the odyssey of traditional Tibetan medicine from it’s roots in ancient Tibet, to a worldwide interest in it’s traditional medical wisdom.
