Ongoing Food Crisis Thread

Given that 1 in every 3 bites of food you eat is do to the pollination of bees, the Australian government is implementing a plan to destroy all beekeeper hives and feral bees in areas they designate, in the name of eradicating a parasite called varroa mites. This is really sad for the bees, their keepers, and for anyone that eats food that requires pollination.


BEEKEEPERS SOUND ALARM: Aussie Govt MASS KILLING Pollinating Bees: "The Govt Doesn't Want Us To Eat"



NSW Australia Deploys Fipronil BEE KILLING Traps: PLUS Killed 500 MILLION Hive Bees (Est)



Stop The Bee Poisoning! More Beekeepers Speak Out Against Fipronil & NSW's Senseless Bee Genocide



The bees will naturally fend off the parasites in their own time, they don’t need a nannying government intervention. How many hundreds of thousands of years have they survived on their own?

Aussie gov is crazy man. Bees are our best friends.

According to the globalists, we are one crop failure away from ‘food system meltdown’ – new consumables added to the shortage and/or inflation list

Natural News) Food costs are still rising, as we see the food-at-home  in February 2023 were 10.2 percent higher than in February 2022, and we feel it at the grocery store every day.

(Article by Susan Duclos republished from AllNewsPipeline.com)

Yesterday Stefan came home from the store with four full plastic bags and a gallon of milk, and spent more than $200.

It is  good thing we have emergency survival food we bought almost nine years ago, because it looks like we will be using it unless we win the lottery……..then again we don’t play the lottery, so there goes that idea.

With food inflation still topping overall inflation, and for some items, like cereals, we are talking 11%-12% increase from last year at this time.

Some key points from the USDA Economic Research Service’s March 2023 forecasts, which incorporate the February 2023 Consumer Price Index and Producer Price Index numbers.

• The food-at-home (grocery store or supermarket food purchases) CPI increased 0.3 percent from January 2023 to February 2023 and was 10.2 percent higher than February 2022

• In 2023, all food prices are predicted to increase 7.5 percent, with a prediction interval of 5.5 to 9.6 percent. Food-at-home prices are predicted to increase 7.8 percent, with a prediction interval of 5.3 to 10.5 percent. Food-away-from-home prices are predicted to increase 8.3 percent, with a prediction interval of 7.2 to 9.3 percent.

• Prices increased for 13 food-at-home categories between January 2023 and February 2023. Prices increased for all categories except fresh vegetables and eggs.


• In 2023, prices are predicted to increase for other meats (4.5 percent), poultry (3.4 percent), dairy products (6.4 percent), fats and oils (15.4 percent), processed fruits and vegetables (11.4 percent), sugar and sweets (11.1 percent), cereals and bakery products (11.7 percent), nonalcoholic beverages (10.7 percent), and other foods (8.5 percent).

• Retail egg prices decreased 6.7 percent in February 2023 but remained 55.4 percent above February 2022 prices. Egg prices are predicted to increase 29.6 percent in 2023, with a prediction interval of 13.4 to 48.9 percent. This wide prediction interval reflects the volatility in retail egg prices.

These are not numbers the MSM push at the people, as they prefer to focus on the lower “overall” inflation, yet food and water are the two items Americans cannot live without.

According to Foreign Policy, while we averted a “collapse of the global food system” in 2022, we are “one major crop failure or natural disaster away from a food system meltdown,” right now.


“China is the largest rice and wheat producer in the world and is currently experiencing the highest level of drought in its rice growing regions in over two decades,” according to CNBC.

Another “major price driver” for rice is India, which has put restrictions on their rice exports

The key point in that report states “The global rice market is set to log its largest shortfall in two decades in 2023.”

While this doesn’t affect Americans as severely as those in other countries, rice is still one of the staple foods for Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck, and with the increased prices due to global shortages, buying in bulk ends up being cheaper in the long run.

Rice is not something we have focused on as much as meats and vegetables in the past, but for households that can barely make ends meet, rice is a staple used often.

Again, lucky for us, we prepared in advance, back when we actually had some money in the bank, so our buckets/pails of rice will last us a while.

I see a lot of rice and beans in my future.

         LastOneLeft’s Organic Potting Soil recipe: Tips on how to produce a large amount of quality compost for next to nothing.

(We’re talking tons here, So you can grow as much fruit and veg as you like) 


Worm Castings: If you’ve started you’re own mini worm farm as I mentioned earlier in the thread then more power to you, we’ll be using worm castings in the mix. 

A good nitrogen base: We’ll be using old composted cattle manure from small independent farmers. I bought 6 tons for £15, but I had to pick it up myself. You probably won’t need this much. Have an ask around. 


Composted grass clippings, sawdust and wood chips or normal garden waste. You may be able to pick up this material from your local council dump, or you might have some yourself.

Stinging Nettles: these act in the same way as seaweed and deliver a punch of trace minerals amino’s and nutrients plus feed beneficial microbiology. They are free and can be collected anywhere, compost them first! 


Gravel: instead of spending a lot of money on perlite or hydro clay, gravel is an inexpensive way of creating the same effect in the soil mix: air pockets and spaces for the plant roots to grow around, increasing nute and oxygen uptake and therefore increased yield. A ton was £36 back a couple of years ago, although now I’m sure it’s gone up. Wash gravel before use.

Charcoal: If you’ve had a bonfire recently save the charcoal and ash leftover. Charcoal sweetens the soil making it more alkaline in balance with the acidic manure, and contains potassium and carbon. Soak the charcoal in a bucket of water for a day to remove the excess materials. 


The mix: 


Mix the cattle manure compost with the garden waste compost 50/50. 

Add 10% of the mix’s quantity of worm castings. 


Add as much nettles compost as you can. 

Add 30% of the mix’s quantity of gravel. 

Then add 10% of the mix’s quantity of charcoal. 

Turn over by hand with a spade, making sure all the ingredients are evenly distributed. 

Bingo! There should be enough nutrients in the mix to feed to halfway through flowering. Use some charcoal water, sugar water and worm castings liquid to boost after this. 
To make the sugar water, dissolve one flat teaspoon of normal sugar or molasses in two litres of water. Add sparingly.

Happy gardening

Good news from our American cousins, let’s hope it sets a precedent for king Charlie and his WEF precision breeding agenda, not in our food chain thank you very much


States Consider Legislation to Restrict Use of mRNA Technology in Livestock

APRIL 27, 2023

By Neil Radimaker

At least five states are considering legislation to restrict the use of mRNA technology or gene therapies in livestock, or demand full disclosure to consumers on product packaging. The states considering such bills include North Dakota, Tennessee, Arizona, Idaho, and Missouri.

North Dakota – SB2384

  • Seeks to ban the use of mRNA vaccines in humans
  • Introduces a penalty for anyone breaking the prohibition

Tennessee – House Bill 0099

  • Amends existing law to prohibit the manufacture or sale of livestock or meat that contains mRNA “vaccine of vaccines materials” without a conspicuous label that there are such ingredients in the product

Arizona – House Bill 2762

  • Requires conspicuous labeling of all aquatic, livestock, or poultry products that received mRNA vaccines
  • Prohibits these products from being labeled as organic

Idaho – House Bill 154

  • Makes it a misdemeanor offense for anyone who provides or administers a vaccine using mRNA technology “for use in an individual or any other mammal in this state”

Missouri – HB1169

  • Requires product labeling of all livestock meat containing “potential gene therapy products”
  • Requires informed consent from consumers for the use of mRNA technology in livestock

Potassium for flowering and ethylene to hasten ripening, free fertiliser, I’ll have some that! Good work the Sun!



WHILE the summer sun may inspire you to start a veggie garden fit for al fresco dining, many people don’t know where to begin.

One expert said her simple hack will keep your plot strong and fruitful.

A South African gardening and DIY lover named Noma (@gardentopot) is committed to home growing fresh ingredients to nourish herself, her husband, and her three children.

She uses TikTok as a space to inspire others to grow their own gardens by removing the expenses and complications from the process.

In one clip, she revealed a cheap way to fertilize the green: with banana peels.

Rather than toss them out after eating the inside, she said to store them in a jar filled with water.


These banana peels have been sitting in water for about five days now,” she revealed, adding that she threw a tea bag in there for extra nitrogen.

Once the soaked water is brown and murky, you will pour the solution into your watering can and add water.

“Make sure the water is about five times the amount of the solution itself. This is to ensure that you don’t attract any unwanted bugs with the strong smell of banana.”

Mix it all together in the can, and pour over your plants.

“Today, I’m fertilizing my potatoes because banana peels are filled with potassium, which is great for the overall health of potatoes and their root system.”

Noma said this solution will be especially helpful for young plants in your garden.

“They’ll thank you for it.”

In the comments, she clarified that you should do this every two weeks to make the most of your plot.

As for other natural fertilizers that won’t cost you extra spending, viewers added that they’ve used orange peels, onion peels, and egg shells.



(Onion peels- sulphur and selenium, egg shells- calcium)

Eating meat is essential for our health and well-being, leading scientists say


With the continued push to move people towards ever more plant-based diets it’s important to recognise that meat is essential for our health and well-being.  A special issue of Animal Frontierspublished last month did just that. 

The societal debate around the value of meat is neither new nor has it been dispassionate. So, Animal Frontiers set out to answer the question: Should eating meat in sufficient portions be a common and important part of the standard human diet?  To do so, they invited a broad group of leading international scientists to give their interpretations of the current scientific evidence.

Thirty-six co-authors, and many more unnamed researchers who provided the groundwork for evidence and insights, contributed to the special issue.  It includes several reports and studies supporting the nutritional value of animal foods for humans. Although the issue covers other related topics, below is a brief description of the articles which discuss the nutritional aspects of meat. For ease of reference, we have used as our subtitles the article titles as shown in Animal Frontiers.  You can view a list of all the articles HERE and read an introduction, which has a synopsis of each article, HERE.


The Role of Meat in The Human Diet: Evolutionary Aspects and Nutritional Value

The first article seeks to address the questions:

  • Is meat indeed to be considered as a meaningful part of the species-adapted diet of humans?
  • Are there nutrients that can become compromised when abstaining from meat?
  • How does meat contribute to the supply of these nutrients globally?
  • Which risks may be created by a large reduction in meat consumption?

The article demonstrates that Homo sapiens evolved to be persistent and frequent meat eaters and that regular meat consumption appears to bestow multiple and important nutritional benefits.  The article abstract states:

Aspects of human anatomy, digestion, and metabolism diverged from other primates, indicating evolutionary reliance on, and compatibility with, substantial meat intake. Implications of a disconnect from evolutionary dietary patterns may contribute to today’s burden of disease, increasing the risk for both nutrient deficiencies and chronic diseases.

Meat supplies high-quality protein and various nutrients, some of which are not always easily obtained with meat-free diets and are often already suboptimal or deficient in global populations. Removal of meat comes with implications for a broad spectrum of nutrients that need to be accounted for, whereas compensatory dietary strategies must factor in physiological and practical constraints.

Although meat makes up a small part (<10%) of global food mass and energy, it delivers most of the global vitamin B12 intake and plays a substantial role in the supply of other B vitamins, retinol, long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, several minerals in bioavailable forms (e.g., iron and zinc), and a variety of bioactive compounds with health-improving potential (e.g., taurine, creatine, and carnosine).

As a food matrix, meat is more than the sum of its individual nutrients. Moreover, within the diet matrix, it can serve as a keystone food in food-based dietary interventions to improve nutritional status, especially in regions that rely heavily on cereal staples.

Efforts to lower global meat intake for environmental or other reasons beyond a critical threshold may hinder progress towards reducing undernutrition and the effects this has on both physical and cognitive outcomes, and thereby stifle economic development. This is particularly a concern for populations with increased needs and in regions where current meat intake levels are low, which is not only pertinent for the Global South but also of relevance in high-income countries.

Non-Communicable Disease Risk Associated with Red and Processed Meat Consumption – Magnitude, Certainty, And Contextuality of Risk

In the second article, experts examined whether there are health risks in eating meat – particularly red and processed meats and their impact on non-communicable diseases – and at what dosages such risks may be incurred.  The article abstract states:

Mean global intakes per person of red and processed meats are 51 and 17 g/day respectively. Consumption is lowest in South Asia (7 and 3 g/d), and highest in Central Europe/Asia (114 and 54 g/d).

While some researchers claim that red meat consumption is intrinsically harmful, the evidence does not support this being the case where intakes are below 75 and 20 g/d, respectively.

Even beyond these intake levels, only small increases in relative risks are reported (<25%), there is little to no effect on absolute risk, and the certainty of evidence remains low to very low based on the best available summary evidence.

Importantly the relationship is not necessarily causal – when meat consumption is part of healthy dietary patterns, harmful associations tend to disappear, suggesting that risk is more likely to be contingent on the dietary context rather than meat itself.

Livestock and Socioeconomics

One of the topics this article explores is all the long-term health and productivity harms that undernourishment causes. It is not only an avoidable human tragedy but also a huge loss in economic opportunity. Expanding animal production output is the most readily available way to nourish the world sufficiently in the future. To achieve this, today’s livestock production processes must become more efficient, leading to more affordable consumer prices of meat, milk, and eggs, which would be a key contribution to making sufficiently nutritious food universally available.

The Dublin Declaration

The Dublin Declaration has garnered the support of over 1,000 scientists globally.  The Declaration’s authors invite all scientists from around the world to sign and, the authors write, “thus give our science a voice that too often is silenced.”

The Declaration includes the statement:

Livestock-derived foods provide a variety of essential nutrients and other health-promoting compounds, many of which are lacking in diets globally, even among those populations with higher incomes. Well-resourced individuals may be able to achieve adequate diets while heavily restricting meat, dairy and eggs. However, this approach should not be recommended for general populations, particularly not those with elevated needs, such as young children and adolescents, pregnant and lactating women, women of reproductive age, older adults, and the chronically ill.

The Dublin Declaration

For the scientific evidence that supports their stance, the Dublin Declaration refers interested parties to the presentation recordings from the International Summit on the Societal Role of Meat that took place in Dublin, Ireland on 19-20 October 2022.

STARVE FOR THE CLIMATE: European Union partners with Dutch government to shut down dairy, cattle, pig, and poultry farms across the country

Friday, May 05, 2023 by: Lance D Johnson 

Natural News) The “Climate Shutdowns” are here. The European Union is partnering with the Dutch government to permanently shut down dairy, cattle, pig, and poultry farms across the Netherlands. Just a year ago, the Dutch government announced a plan to reduce nitrogen emissions across the country by more than 50 percent by 2030.
On May 2, the European Commission approved a plan that would pay livestock farmers to shut down indefinitely in designated conservation areas if they agree to never start the same breeding activity elsewhere. The EU’s environmental regulations are a threat to basic economic freedoms and the repercussions will impact human rights and the food supply itself.

European Green Deal bribing small farmers to shut down permanently

Under the European Green Deal, governments are bribing small and mid-sized farmers to shut down their operations permanently because their facilities produce high levels of nitrogen. The nitrogen is now labeled a “pollutant” that should be cut by 50% across Europe. Under the Green Deal, it is “necessary and appropriate” to “improve the environmental conditions of the targeted areas and to allow a high quality, sustainable and environmentally friendly production,” and that involves shutting down hundreds of small farms. The Dutch government has budgeted roughly €1.47 billion ($1.62 billion) to pay off the farmers and shut them down for good.

The funds will be used to compensate the farmers “up to 100 percent” of the losses they incur after “voluntarily” agreeing to shutdown dairy, cattle, pig, and poultry breeding sites. The EU Commission is calling these buyouts “direct grants.”

Under the government’s plan, these new buy-outs of small and mid-sized farms are called “schemes.” The Dutch government will keep the schemes running until February of 2028, until most farming operations are consolidated into the hands of the few. The EU Commission claims that the schemes are “proportionate” and the compensation “brings about positive effects that outweigh any potential distortion of competition and trade in the European Union.”

Farmers are only eligible for the buy-outs if they can prove that they have produced for five consecutive years. The WEF globalists behind the new plan know that the Netherlands is a top exporter of meat and agricultural products around the world. According to the National Statistics Office, Dutch agricultural exports were worth €122.3 billion last year. Farmers are fighting back against the new environmental rules that threaten their very existence, but the Dutch government is conspiring with the WEF.

The EU is destroying fundamental freedoms and restricting food production, all for the “greater good”

Robbin Voorend is one such farmer who has spoken out about the European Green Deal. The government’s nitrogen emission schemes have already cut his livestock production by 90-95%. Dairy farmer Martin Neppelenbroek attests that the government culled 95% of his herd.

These schemes will not be enough to convince every farmer to shut down, so additional bribes and payouts will be included in the bigger plan. Under the €975 million ($1.77 billion) LBV-plus scheme, some farmers who shut down high-level nitrogen operations will receive up to 120% in compensation from the lost production capacity. Under the European Green Deal, member states may grant some farmers an additional 20% “green bonus”  — if they shutdown their farms for “environmental” reasons.

Dutch political commentator Eva Vlaardingerbroek estimates that the EU buyouts could permanently shutdown 3,000 or more Dutch farms.

“This is how they do it: they put a knife to the farmers’ throats. They make sure they don’t get their licenses renewed, they’re plaguing them with new rules and restrictions every day and then offer them a bribe, knowing many will take it out of pure desperation. It’s all so vile,” Vlaardingerbroek wrote, while questioning the legality of the government prohibiting farmers from starting over again.

“The whole idea of the EU was supposed to be about freedom of movement and freedom of workers. This is some next-level USSR stuff,” Vlaardingerbroek warned.

I’m sure this applies to the Uk market too, although it doesn’t bother me, havnt been to a fast food chain for decades. Bloody good job ‘n all…


Fast-food chains are pulling a fast one on customers, selling chicken products that are only about 60% real meat

Natural News) Real, organic meat is getting harder and harder to come by. A closer look at 13 popular fast-food chains finds that most of these restaurants sell chicken products that are only about 60 percent real meat.

These corporations are selling “premium” and “all-white meat” products that are just watered down, fake food patties and spongy fake meat nuggets that are riddled with fake fibers, artificial powders, and flavorings. These fake products are full of water, thickeners, preservatives, and various other ingredients that dilute the nutritional quality of real meat. Some of these filler ingredients include soy, carrageenan, protein powders and wood pulp.

A closer look at 13 fast food chicken products

McDonald’s: The iconic McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets are not 100% chicken. These products are full of yeast and dextrose, lemon juice solids, flours, artificial flavors, acid, and spices.

Wendy’s: The Wendy’s grilled chicken sandwich is only 56% real chicken! The rest of the patty contains a generous portion of chicken powder, soybean oil, wheat flour, starch, acids, spices, and flavor powders. The patty is also watered down to cut costs.

Whataburger: Whataburger bulks up its chicken products with soy protein. Their chicken tenders contain up to 12% water, sodium phosphate, and isolated soy protein. Some people are allergic to soy protein, but many people allergic to soy do not know that chicken strips are partly a soy-based product.

Carl’s Jr: Surprisingly, the star shaped chicken nuggets served at Carl’s Jr. contain beef fat and beef flavor that is taken from three different types of protein: hydrolyzed soy, wheat, and corn protein. Just as strange, the Carl’s Jr. chicken sandwich contains a bun that is made from wood pulp (microcrystalline cellulose). Their spicy chicken sandwich suspiciously contains “isolated oat product.”


Subway: Subway has faced criticism in the past. In some countries, the corporation offers bread made with yoga mat chemicals (azodicarbonamide). Subway isn’t the only fast-food chain to use this chemical. Today, Subway serves oven roasted chicken” that is nothing close to 100 percent white meat chicken, as they claim. Their chicken product contains various flavorings, potato starch, and a thickening chemical that is void of nutrition and unfit for consumption – carrageenan.

Jack in the Box: Jack in the Box serves a chicken product that is diluted with oats, water, rib meat, and potato starch, among other ingredients that dilute the nutritional quality of real meat.

Burger King: At Burger King, they offer chicken nuggets full of autolyzed yeast extract. This chemical is unsuitable for anyone who cannot eat eggs, milk, wheat, gluten, or celery. These nuggets contain flavor enhancers that are designed to addict the consumer to the food. These flavor enhancers include disodium guanylate.

Arby’s: Arby’s uses a unique filler in their buttermilk chicken fillet. They bulk up the fillets with protein concentrates that are typically used by athletes and bodybuilders. These chicken fillets are full of whey protein, which gives the product more texture and taste.

Culver’s: The Culver’s original chicken tenders are far from real meat. They contain a bunch of water and starch and a special chemical (sodium tripolyphosphate) to help the product retain moisture during cooking.

White Castle: The White Castle chicken rings are full of carrageenan and powdered cooked chicken.

Domino’s: The chicken on a Domino’s pizza is full of lipolyzed butter oil and thickening agents like modified food starch and modified corn starch. These are used to make the food last longer on the shelf and to stabilize it.

Dairy Queen: At Dairy Queen, they offer chicken strips that are watered down with a solution that consists of 18% water, hydrolyzed soy protein, salt, and sodium phosphates which are used to improve the product’s texture and make it last longer.

Most people don’t realize that real organic meat is slowly being restricted and made less accessible in diets around the world. As real, organic meat is restricted across human diets and replaced with chemicals and fillers, it will only deepen the malnutrition crisis throughout the global population.

The Vegan Backfire: The Truth Behind The Antimeat Agenda

Posted on: 
Thursday, May 11th 2023 at 11:00 am
Written By: 

Jan Wellmann


Our dinner table will be void of high-density, natural, animal-sourced foods within a decade or two. A deeper look behind the agenda explains why it's necessary to start planning for self-sustenance.

Tell Me What You Eat

"Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you who you are," wrote the French gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin in his 1825 book Physiology of Taste.1

Friedrich Nietzsche agreed with the notion in Ecce Homo almost a century later. Nietsche tried vegetarianism but concluded that moderation and balance in everything were for the best, just like Brillat-Savarin, who also emphasized enjoyment and quality of food. 

Another century later, it's time again to remember that yes, indeed, "we are what we eat," as the social engineers aim to eliminate high-density, animal-sourced nutrition - such as meat, dairy, and eggs - and replace it with plant-synthesized foods. 

With "plants," we don't mean the living, growing things from nature but laboratory-sourced and factory-made variants.

Take, for example, plant seed oils, aka vegetable oils, which are almost entirely synthetic, and represent one of the most damaging, widely propagated nutrients available, damaging the gastrointestinal tract, undermining the microbial balance, and perforating the gut lining - cornerstones of our digestive, immune, and endocrine systems.2

Whether we like the idea of low-density, genetically manipulated, and chemically construed nutrients doesn't matter. What matters is to optimize the CO2 impact of our future calories in a way that doesn't destroy the planet. 

This emotional, psychologically calibrated story consists of 50 percent cosmetics and 50 percent bullshit. 

The real agenda is control. 

As Henry Kissinger, Klaus Schwab's grand old tutor and spokesperson of the World Government clan, supposedly said, "Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world."3

It doesn't take a conspiracy theorist to realize that these tangents are now fully engaged. We're on our way to a human paddock system. Once inside, the exit will be tricky. 

We will focus on the food aspect below because it will have the most immediate and profound impact on what the human species will become tomorrow. If we fail to stop the present vector, we will face a catastrophically sicker and weaker constituency that relies on pharmaceuticals, boosters, and an AI-driven nanny. 

Large swaths of the population have already been brainwashed to believe that the next meatless upgrade of the SAD (Standard American Diet) will be good for humans and the planet. 

Once you're Clockwork Oranged into the benefits of vegan synthetic burgers, a single image of a steak dinner may activate the words "cholesterol," "ICU," and "defibrillator" in your subconscious, along with a GIF animation of yourself writhing on a TV couch from a coronary attack.

You may also witness cows on pastel pastures farting methane clouds, responsible for sinking Bangkok, New Orleans, Miami, and Venice under the rising sea. Don't forget the ice caps melting, polar bears drowning, their cubs starving, and your dreams of ever visiting Rome, Italy, vaporizing because southern Europe is becoming a part of the Sahara.

Terrible things happen when you lack the moral courage to refuse a steak. 

It takes decades of engineered narratives to get to this level of mindfuckery. It takes a century's worth of psyops to swallow the anti-meat narrative as if it was a series of scientific arguments. 

Unfortunately, it's not the first or the last time we got taken for a ride.

Historic Forerunner: The Cholesterol Con

Phasing out meat will likely overshadow the harm done by phasing out saturated fat, which began with the 1980s "low-fat" craze, aka the "saturated fat-clogs-arteries" myth.

What happened within a few low-fat decades is historical, as evidenced by the explosion of obesity rates in industrialized countries.

The low-fat disinformation campaign used cholesterol as the patsy. Eating fat leads to excess cholesterol leads to heart disease -story. Today, we know it was a fabrication from beginning to end. 

According to the latest peer-reviewed research, "consuming a diet consisting of a high percentage of natural fats, a moderate amount of protein, and a low ratio of carbohydrates will help us lose weight, prevent disease, satisfy our appetite, reduce food cravings, and promote longevity."4

Consuming good fats (coconut oil, olive oil, organic meat fats, avocado, fish oils, etc.) is a reliable way to gain high-density calories while losing weight healthily without affecting our cholesterol level. 

Besides, uncorrupted science has known for a long time that cholesterol is vital for life. "It is a critical building block for hormones, a crucial part of the immune system, and central to the body's tissue-repair apparatus. Without cholesterol, there would be no cell renewal and no life," writes Dr. Jeffry Gerber in Eat Rich Live Long.

If you have stress and inflammation in the body, as most people do nowadays, your survival relies on increased cholesterol levels, as it helps heal and repair the damaged cells. Unless you pop a Lipitor, of course, and prevent the body from healing itself. 

Due to the multibillion-dollar market for cholesterol-lowering pills, Big Pharma - assisted by Big Media and Big Healthcare - first demonized cholesterol and second manipulated the threshold for diagnosing "high cholesterol" until almost every human on the planet met the criteria to pop a statin. By 2011, Pfizer was making $11 billion on Lipitor alone. By 2021, Lipitor had aggregated lifetime sales of over $163 billion.5 6 7 8

That's quite a performance for a pill with serious side effects (including rapid memory loss, balance issues, and acute muscle pain) and a near-zero impact on longevity or well-being.9 10

The Grand Cholesterol Con will live in infamy and can probably only be surpassed by the legacy of the MRNA shots11, but that's another (developing) story. 

Now we're entering the next level of harm potential for humanity. As we shall see from objective nutritional data, going meatless will be a turbo accelerator for the already failing collective physical and mental health. Or let's just say "health" since "mental" and "physical" are both aspects of metabolic health, driven by our standard of nutrition and lifestyle.12 13

The new nutritional reality will also do nothing to climate change while compromising efficient land management to the point of planetary self-sabotage. 

The Arguments Against Meat

The chief arguments against meat - according to the engineered narrative - are the following:

1) Ethical: the modern meat industry is evil.

2) Efficiency: meat production is inefficient and can't nourish the global population.

3) Health: Meat is bad for you and correlates with cancer, coronary disease, etc.

4) CO2: Meat production drives climate change.

5) Better Alternatives: The new synthetic meat alternatives are healthier, more cost-effective, and more eco-friendly. 

6) Spiritual / Religious: why should humans have the right to kill and eat other life forms? 

There are probably more, but let's tackle these first. 

"The Meat Industry is Evil & Ecologically Inefficient"

Yes, it's true. The processed meat industry is one of the great evils of our time. In the last century, we've normalized wholesale animal suffering in exchange for vacuum-packed protein slices and corporate profits. We can taste the nightmare in the end product if our conscience is still attached to our taste buds. We're not just getting a piece of a cadaver that's imprinted with a lifetime of torture; we're also getting a carcinogenic cocktail of chemicals intended to preserve the animal long enough to be sold and digested (Table 1).

This is why vegans have such a powerful, convincing argument. "Please, just stop this insanity! It's the crime of the century!" And they're right. The offense is so bad that future alien societies will probably singe us (similar to Tim Burton's Mars Attacks) based on what we did to animals in the 20th and 21st centuries.

However, the holocaust argument ignores the fact that we could also work with animals without subjecting them to, err, a holocaust. We could replace the concentration camps with animal- and eco-friendly environments, where the animals graze free, fertilize the ground naturally without oil-based derivatives, and thrive without a cocktail of hormones because they are free and content.14

This brilliant strategy, designed by nature, can be imitated by regenerative agriculture with crop diversity, free-grazing livestock, and natural fertilization by letting animals and vegetation mingle.15

The modern slaughterhouse is an example of what happens when we second-guess nature, then blame meat for all the ills - including contamination (methane, nitrous oxide) and animal disease (necessitating antibiotics and hormones) - when the problems only concern the method of execution.

"During the past century, agriculture declared fossil-fuel-based warfare on land mechanically (plowing soil), chemically (herbicides and pesticides), and biologically (GMO technology). By separating rearing livestock from growing crops, we de-coupled bio-and geochemical cycling of carbon, water, nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur, and increased emissions of methane and nitrous oxide, as well as eutrophication and contamination of water sources," write the authors of an extensive study into sustainable food systems.16

The gut reaction to these arguments is usually strictly emotional. "You can't feed billions of people with free-grazing meat!" The truth is that the present system - chemically induced mono-crops that serial produce arid land and separate animals from nature - is the unsustainable equation. 

Pro-vegan ambassadors forget that most agricultural land cannot be leveraged for crops anyway - due to unsuitable terrain, poor soil, lack of water, et cetera. Two-thirds of the world's two billion hectares of grassland (as opposed to agricultural land) globally cannot be used as cropland, which makes them ideal for grazing happy livestock.17 18 19

Take Alan Savory, a land management expert who studied the herds in his native Zimbabwe. When the animals were allowed to roam in a way that left enough resting time for the soil to recover (nature's way), magic happened, with a triple bonus:

The herd lives healthy and free.

The herd helps revitalize arid land to the point of transforming desertified areas into fertile land (the only known technique that does this successfully today)

The herd produces exceptionally high-nutrition meat sans hormones, antibiotics, and chemicals. 

Alan's TED talk about the Holistic Planned Grazing method is worth a listen. You will wonder why it hasn't been widely adopted yet in other parts of the world. It is the answer to one of the most pressing problems of our planet: arid lands.20 21

Arid lands make up nearly 30% to 41% of the world's land surface and are home to one in three people today. The degradation in the land quality of arid regions is responsible for a reduction in the national domestic product of up to eight percent every year. 

"We can avoid the common fate of ancient societies as long as we do not repeat their grand folly of stripping off fertile topsoil at an unsustainable rate. Unfortunately, that is exactly what we are doing, only this time on a global scale," writes David Montgomery in his book Dirt, The Erosion of Civilizations. 

Why doesn't the media talk about this story? 

The answer is that the social engineers would have to give up on argument against the possibility of ethical meat production. 

The vegan narrative sidelines the fact that we can work with animals as equals. It wants us to focus on an ethical crime because it's the perfect recruitment campaign for anti-meat movements.

The ethical recruitment effort is working, but surprisingly, it hasn't produced enough foot soldiers for a revolution. Although the narrative in the last two decades has drastically increased the number of vegans, the total is still hovering below 3 percent of the US and EU population.22 23 24

This is why the social engineers have long ago recognized that they need to spice up the story beyond the ethical.

Meat needs to also be bad for humans and the planet.

"Meat Is Bad For Humans"

Even if all "plant-based" foods were, in fact, natural, made from clean vegetables, fruit, and seeds, a purely vegan diet would be insufficient to keep most people healthy.

"I'm writing this book as a cautionary tale. A vegetarian diet--especially a low-fat version, and most especially a vegan one--is not sufficient nutrition for long-term maintenance and repair of the human body. To put it bluntly, it will damage you. I know. Two years into my veganhood, my health failed, and it failed catastrophically. I developed a degenerative joint disease that I will have for the rest of my life. It started that spring as a strange, dull ache deep in a place I didn't know could have sensation. By the end of the summer, it felt like shrapnel in my spine," writes Lierre Keith in her book The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice, and Sustainability. Lierre is a former vegan who devoted her life to understanding the science of nutrition (full quote25).

At first, the awakened vegans - often young girls - who give up meat for ethical reasons feel uplifted, lighter, awakened, and more energetic - self-ascertained. As years pass by, chronic issues accrue slowly. Just like frogs in simmering water fail to notice the temperature increase, vegans fail to notice the gradual energy loss, the fatigue, and the rise of chronic issues. They have to hit a wall, often after the second decade, before they realize something is genuinely wrong. 

We often need an ambulance trip to allow for a change in thinking. I did. And even the ICU is usually not enough to restart the brain. We also need exposure to the right, uncorrupted data. These two factors rarely coincide. 

I first came across the vegan downside via metabolomic blood studies that examine cellular ATP production, the so-called citric cycle, with molecular blood scans. Although I was already eating meat, my blood values told me to focus on more meat intake to improve my amino acid balance. The metabolomic expert told me that my nutritional profile was that of a caveman. My new meat- and fat-rich diet became a game changer for me. After years of fatigue, I thrived. I decided to pass on the favor and introduce more people to metabolomic scans, to help them identify their unique nutritional profile, and get healthier. I learned from a history of over 15,000 metabolomic scans that the chronic issue incidence is significantly higher for women in their late 40s and 50s who had been on a vegan diet for at least 15-20 years.26

Later, I began to work with biophysical scans27 28 that take only 12 minutes to measure the energetic level of the human body and noticed a common theme in over a thousand measurements. Women avoiding meat for over a decade had more chronic issues and exhibited lower energy, higher incidence of depression, gut issues, and a weaker immune system. 

Convincing a vegan to change tact is tricky because the arguments - especially the ethical and spiritual - are deeply embedded in the emotional narrative. Out of the handful - dozen or so - individuals whom I had the honor of convincing enough to complement their diet with organic meat - "at least a tiny bit of organic beef or chicken liver a couple of times per week" - 95 percent changed their tune within a few weeks and stuck with animal products.

"Moderation and balance," remember?

It's important to stress that diet is always highly individual. Not everyone needs meat as others. But it is safe to say that almost everyone needs some animal-derived products in their diet. The reason is simple. Meat can deliver certain critical nutrients that no vegan product can with the same metabolic efficiency. 

"Although the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) is quoted as having said that 'all of the major dietetics societies have published papers stating that a vegan diet is nutritionally adequate for all stages of human health,' accompanying this statement is a list of all the nutrients that need to be obtained via fortification and supplements, an admission that a vegan diet is not, in and of itself, safe or complete," writes Jayne Buxton in The Great Plant-Based Con.

"Nutrients that are only found in animal foods include preformed vitamin A, B12, D3 and K2 (MK4 subtype), heme iron, taurine, carnosine, creatine, CLA, EPA, and DHA. Nutrients low in plants include zinc, iodine, methionine, leucine, choline, and glycine. Furthermore, plants often have different forms of the same nutrient that are less bioavailable and are metabolized differently."29

Let's take a quick look at the Top 5.

Vitamin A is key for protein and calcium assimilation, bone growth, eyesight, immune system function, thyroid function, and the production of stress and sex hormones. Vegetarian and vegan diets suffer from a near-total lack of vitamin A.30

Vitamin D promotes strong bones, a healthy immune system, reduced inflammation, mineral metabolism, calcium absorption, muscle tone, healthy glucose metabolism, cell function, and longevity. The body naturally wants D3, which the body makes when exposed to the sun. Still, the body needs animal foods (including shellfish, fish liver oils, egg yolks, organ meats, butterfat, and the fat of birds and pigs) because D2 from plants is vastly inferior, and the D3 from animal foods is significantly more bioavailable and potent.31

Vitamin B12 plays a role in DNA synthesis, myelin formation, red cell production, and central nervous system maintenance. There are no reliable plant sources of B12, which is why vegetarians and vegans exhibit high levels of B12 deficiency. Symptoms include fatigue, depression, anxiety, poor memory, balance problems, vision deterioration, mental confusion or memory loss, and depression.32 33

Similar data applies to Omega 3 fatty acids, which are crucial for cell membranes. It isn't easy to get omega-3s from flax or chia seeds. Oily fish or grass-fed meat would be a vastly better alternative for maintaining cellular health.

What about minerals? Getting all the 17 essential minerals from plant-based sources exclusively is extremely difficult. We would need to eat unsustainable amounts of plant equivalents to get to minimum acceptable levels if we had to avoid animal-based foods.34 35

The list goes on.

It's good to remember the history of indigenous tribes. Before Western colonialism got to them, they were thriving on high-fat, meat-centric diets, sans chronic disease.

Two missionary physicians who arrived in Kenya in the 1920s wrote that "hypertension and diabetes were absent… the native population was as thin as ancient Egyptians."

It took forty years of British high-carb diets to convert the slim Kenyans into obese Africans with a host of health issues, starting with tooth decay and leading to "gout, obesity, diabetes, and hypertension, and eventually encompassing all of them," the missionaries observed.36

India was similarly transformed into the "Diabetes Capital Of The World," with British-introduced nutrition habits. Western diets literally wiped out the perfectly healthy Inuit, the Native Americans, the Zulus, the Natal Indians, Polynesian cultures, Yanomamo and Xingu Indians of Brazil, and whoever else was either forcibly or willingly acculturated to our lifestyle. 

"Red Meat Causes Cancer"

What about all the "endless" studies "proving" that meat eaters are sicker and more prone to chronic disease? What about the correlation between red meat and cancer? 

Well, it's a bit like the "99 percent of scientists agree..." angle used in so many fairy tales today, from MRNA to climate change. When you lift the curtain, you witness a different reality. Often, the rare scientists who disagree with the "consensus" are independent scientists with integrity, untainted by corporate paychecks or research grants. Call it the Copernicus Syndrome. 

The two studies linking cancer to red meat consumption, for example, compare consumers of processed meats (see Table 1 below for the list of chemicals and carcinogens in modern processed meats) with vegetarian diets and fail to also adjust for lifestyle differences (meat eaters are also more often smokers and drinkers), and other variables. In short, the research is "cooked" to look bad for meat. The faulty studies are then propagated by WHO and quoted by mainstream media as if they represented axiomatic truths.37


  1. Bisphenols, such as BPA, can act like the hormone estrogen, interfere with puberty and fertility, increase body fat, and cause problems with the immune and nervous systems.
  2. Nitrates/nitrites are used to extend shelf life, preserve foods, and enhance color in cured meats. When heated or mixed with stomach acid, nitrites can produce nitrosamines, linked to an increased risk of colon and pancreatic cancer.
  3. Tert-butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ), a preservative in many processed foods, may harm the immune system.
  4. Per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of chemicals that can accumulate in the body and have been linked to health issues such as hormone disruption, immune system problems, and cancer.
  5. Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), which some people may be sensitive or allergic to, causes symptoms such as headaches, nausea, and chest pain.
  6. Sulfites, which are used as a preservative and can trigger asthma.
  7. Phosphates are sometimes added to processed meats and, when consumed in excessive amounts, can increase the risk of heart disease.
  8. Hormones may be used in animal production to promote growth and potentially disrupt hormonal balance in humans.

No doubt, consuming these chemicals, even without red meat, will probably make you sick. 

"Epidemiological studies that find inverse associations between eating red meat and health do not distinguish between meat from livestock fed high-grain diets in feedlots and livestock foraging on phytochemically rich mixtures of plants. Nor do they address how herbs, spices, vegetables, and fruits eaten in a meal with meat can enhance health," writes Fred Provenza in Frontiers in Nutrition.38

You are hard-pressed to find a single, uncooked study proving that organic meats negatively affect health. 

"The benefits to humans of eating phytochemically/ biochemically rich meat accrue as livestock assimilate some phytochemicals and convert others into metabolites that become muscle and fat, which become the phytochemicals/biochemicals that promote health. That is similar to but distinct from, the benefits realized by eating phytochemically rich herbs, spices, vegetables, and fruits. This expanded pool of compounds--phytochemicals and metabolites produced by animals from plants--should be considered in attempts to understand benefits to humans, such as damping oxidative stress and inflammation linked with cancer, cardiovascular disease, and metabolic syndrome," continues Fred Provenza.

The cognitive dissonance ride that comes with digging into the truth of meat is akin to hanging on to a raging bull with your cowboy hat on. It just gets crazier rapidly. But hang on just a little bit longer.

"Cow Burbs And Farts Cause Climate Change"

Cows are responsible for the coming apocalypse if we trust the tale. But there is a catch. 

The original story of how cow burbs and farts contribute catastrophically to our methane levels comes from an Oxford University study39 that was referenced in a public UK broadcast in 2020. The media hijacked the story as proof that humans could reduce their carbon footprint by 61-73 percent if they went vegan. However, the actual Oxford study refers to different foods' footprints, not people's. Big difference.

Estimates for an individual's food footprint is at most 16 percent, which means that the theoretical maximum for reducing individual footprint by going vegan is 16 percent out of 73 percent, or about 10 percent. 

However, even this 10 percent maximum is messed because the entire argumentation is lopsided. 

Let's take an example of exactly how lopsided. 

If you lock in a thousand bunny rabbits in a small shed, and they wreck the place with poopoo, do you blame the bunnies for destroying the shed, or do you take responsibility for locking them in the shed in the first place? 

As long as we keep billions of farm animals separated from the nitrogen cycle, producing waste that's not cycled effectively back into nature's bosom, incalculable damage will continue to animals and planet, including vast amounts of unnecessary methane release.40

If we, on the other hand, follow the natural cycle of the Earth, integrate free-grazing animals into our future eco-plans, there is another narrative-reversing boon, which is namely sequestration, the way in which natural land management captures CO2. This can be further accelerated with silvopasture, which is a way to integrate trees into working landscapes.41 42

Sequestration-conscious land management policies have the power to reverse climate change, desertification, and methane production, but are rarely if ever discussed by scientists or the media. Wonder why?

Instead, mainstream media propagates absurd allegations made by publicity stunts like the Cowspiracy documentary, which alleges that animal agriculture accounts for 51 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions. Although the producers were later forced to retract these allegations, the story stuck with the public, because it abides with the engineered narrative. 

The reality is that in the US, where the per capita meat consumption is highest in the world, agriculture accounts for 9 percent, transportation 29 percent, and industry 22 percent of total emissions. 


Emissions from animal agriculture are around 4 percent of the total for agriculture, whereas those from non-animal agriculture are 5 percent.

There you go. Animal agriculture, even in it's incredibly evil shape today, isn't worse than non-animal agriculture in terms of emissions.

These numbers represent the current, highly inefficient, non-sequestration, non-nitrogen-cycled reality. The one we should reform instead of castrating our food supply.

"New Synthetic Meat Alternatives Are Better"

Processed, low-fat, plant-based foods began the obesity epidemic in the 1980s, yet we are expected to believe that the new ultra-processed (Frankenstein) foods (UPFs) are going to be great for us. 

The fake meat industry is already taking leaps and bounds. According to Bloomberg, the plant-based meat market could reach $450 billion by 2040 and grow at least $70 billion over the next decade.43 44

UPFs present a formidable threat to global health. Pediatric endocrinologist Dr Robert Lustig details in his book45 how UPFs have already helped to fuel non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and dementia. UPFs are also addictive, obesogenic (contributing to obesity), and tend to mess with the immune system, according to Dr. Joan Ifland.46

Most people who will likely confuse plant-based diets with healthy, vegan nutrition are in for a deadly ride with ultra-processed synthetic proteins, additives, preservatives, stabilizers, GMO concoctions, emulsifiers, seed oils, sugars, acidity regulators and thickeners regurgitated in a matrix of test tubes in a way that gets them hooked for a lifetime. 

UPFs are not just going to replace natural meat products but also dairy, eggs, and grain. 

We are what we eat.

One day, we may believe that delicious tasting and smelling silicon wafers are good for us with a side of tofu, while an AI program decides where to haul our wheelchair next. 

"Why Should Humans Be Allowed To Kill Animals?"

This ethical argument drives more vegan converts than any other argument for understandable reasons. It's commendable to be shocked about the slaughterhouse conditions of suffering animals, but blaming meat consumption for the evil is an engineered, simplified response to the problem, since we already know how easily the problem could be fixed with regenerative farming models. 

There is also another aspect that the main narrative is burying in this context: the amount of suffering and killing of animals due to modern agriculture per se. Mono-crop agriculture is not possible without the wholesale slaughter of diversified lifeforms.

Few farmers consider the math.

"For me to grow 214 acres of stone fruit and avocados on this farm requires me to kill at least thirty-five to forty thousand gophers a year, thousands of ground squirrels, thousands of bees, thousands of butterflies, thousands of hummingbirds, those last three things completely by accident, the other two are predators or pests that I would kill intentionally," calculates Californian farmer John Chester.47

To grow 400 tonnes of peas on a single farm will kill 1,500 animals every year, from deer to ducks. A billion mice are killed in Australia to protect meat. Forty thousand ducks are killed to protect rice production. An average apple grower will kill 120 possums in a year to protect an orchard.

In 2013, rice farmers in New South Wales killed 200,000 native ducks. US Department of Agriculture estimates 1.3 million native animal deaths per year to protect non-animal agriculture. In total, at least twenty-five times more sentient animals are getting killed per kilo of useable protein when compared to meat production.48

However, the math is irrelevant here. There is a deeper argument that has to do with nature of life that we should consider.

Every form of life depends on the consumption of other life forms. Even vegetables are meat eaters if you observe a carcass that's left in the forest or pasture, as the cycle of life and energy grinds its inevitable destiny of forever transmuting from one form to another. 

Lierre Keith recounts the story of an apple tree near the graves of Roger Williams, the founder of Rhode Island.

"The roots of the tree were found to have grown into the graves and assumed the shape of human skeletons while the graves were emptied of every particle of human dust. Not a trace of anything was left."

The apple tree ate a human. Is the apple tree bad?

"Now, one of the main problems of mythology is reconciling the mind to this brutal precondition of all life, which lives by the killing and eating of lives. You don't kid yourself by eating only vegetables, either, for they, too, are alive. So the essence of life is this eating of itself! Life lives on lives, and the reconciliation of the human mind and sensibilities to that fundamental fact." Writes Joseph Campbell, the penultimate authority on ancient civilizations.

Even when we stick to the purest principles of nature, where we safeguard animals, the planet, and human interests with equal balance, we'll still be eating each other.

Undoubtedly, we'll have to do it while being nicer to each other.

Epilogue: Shortcutting The "Scientific Consensus"

As we've already learned, any claim leveraging "scientific consensus" should be considered investigation-worthy if used to justify the engineered agenda.

If a naysayer, such as a "climate denier," gets demolished by the media or their professional circles, we should look deeper into their data models.

A few years ago, I was sold on sea-level rise, collapsing icebergs, and the sixth extinction. Today, I believe we should look at the "manmade" part of the "consensus."49

If any story aligns with the envisioned future of nutrition, we should take our magnifying glasses out and dig in with hellish dedication.

The pursuit of truth is a critical determinant of the future shape of our species. There is nothing more important than preserving our health and energy. For that to happen, we need to once again integrate with nature, eat in a healthy, natural, and balanced way, and get busy with things we are passionate about.

Cranberries Can Reduce Risk for Urinary Tract Infections

Posted on: 
Monday, May 15th 2023 at 3:00 pm
Written By: 
Dr. Joseph Mercola



  • Polyphenols found in cranberries may help reduce the risk of developing urinary tract infections (UTIs) and reduce the risk of symptomatic, culture-verified UTIs in women with recurrent UTIs
  • Cranberry products had little to no benefit in elderly men and women in residential facilities, in pregnant women or adults with incomplete bladder emptying
  • Data have conclusively demonstrated that a majority of the rising number of UTIs are caused by exposure to contaminated chicken. A close genetic match has been found between drug-resistant E. coli in humans and bacteria found in poultry
  • Cranberries are rich in iodine, and a diet high in flavonoids, also found in cranberries, can lower the risk of heart disease, cancer and all-cause mortality, and have a sustained benefit on the cardiovascular system of healthy individuals
  • Several preventive practices can reduce the risk of a UTI, including staying well-hydrated, taking showers instead of baths, urinating when you feel the need and avoiding feminine hygiene sprays; consider starting a UTI treatment at home

Cranberries are rich in polyphenols, which are metabolites that scientists believe are involved in plant defense. One group of polyphenols are proanthocyanidins, which are the compounds that give fruits or flowers a distinctive purple, blue or red coloring and belong to a subclass called flavonoids.1

Flavonoids are found in some fruits, vegetables, tea, wine and dark chocolate. These compounds have long been studied for their beneficial effects on health and are now an indispensable part of applications in the cosmetics, pharmaceutical, medicinal and nutraceutical industries.2 Nearly every group of flavonoids acts as an antioxidant to protect the body against reactive oxygen species (ROS).

Proanthocyanidins found in cranberries are unique to the fruit and have very distinctive properties.3 This distinction may, in part, be responsible for the results of a Cochrane Library systematic review of the literature4 which continues to demonstrate that cranberries are effective in the effort to reduce urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Cochrane Review Finds Cranberries Help Prevent UTIs

Cranberries are native to North America and were used as a staple by Native Americans for centuries. The berries have a natural preservative, allowing sailors to keep them on board to prevent scurvy.5 Native Americans once used them to draw poison from wounds, calm nerves and ward off indigestion. The berries have also been commonly used as a treatment for UTIs.

The berries are also known as bearberries since bears enjoy eating them, or bounce berries, since they bounce after being dropped when they are fresh. Although the fruit is little, they pack a nutritional punch, including a good source of fiber, vitamin C and a variety of antioxidants. Unlike other berries, they're naturally low in sugar, which is why many commercially prepared cranberry products contain added sweeteners.

The most recent Cochrane systematic review of the literature6 included an additional 26 studies more than the last review, bringing the total number to 50 studies with 8,857 randomized participants. The results of this review showed cranberry products reduce both the risk of developing UTIs and the risk of symptomatic, culture-verified urinary tract infections in women with recurrent UTIs.

The review concluded that the data supported the "use of cranberry products to reduce the risk of symptomatic, culture-verified UTIs in women with recurrent UTIs, in children, and in people susceptible to UTIs following interventions. The evidence currently available does not support its use in the elderly, patients with bladder emptying problems, or pregnant women."7

The review also included studies that compared cranberry products with probiotics and antibiotics. When compared to preventive antibiotic use, cranberry products had little or no difference in the risk of a UTI, but when compared against probiotics, cranberry appeared to lower the risk of symptomatic, culture-verified UTIs.

Gastrointestinal side effects were the most reported in the studies and the number of participants who reported GI upset did not differ between those taking the placebo and those taking cranberry products.

Epidemiologist Jonathan Craig from Flinders University, commented on the results, "This is a review of the totality of the evidence, and as new evidence emerges, new findings might occur. In this case, the new evidence shows a very positive finding that cranberry juice can prevent UTI in susceptible people."8

UTI Prevalence Rises With Increasing Antimicrobial Resistance

You may have learned that UTIs are primarily caused by the transfer of Escherichia coli (E. coli) during sexual contact with an infected individual or by transferring fecal bacteria from your anus to your urethra. However, more recent studies have conclusively demonstrated that a majority of the rising number of UTIs9 are caused by exposure to contaminated chicken.10

Factory-farmed chickens are a source of most antibiotic-resistant UTIs. This can be traced back to the routine use of antibiotics for growth promotion and infection prevention for animals kept in close quarters, which has increased antibiotic resistance. Data11 gathered from 2005 to 2007 matched drug-resistant E. coli strains from supermarket meat to human E. coli infections.

Research12,13 has since confirmed humans can develop antibiotic resistance by eating poultry treated with antibiotics. Bacteria from conventionally raised chicken, and in those who ate the chicken, were found to be more prone to developing resistance against Synercid, a strong antibiotic used to treat Vancomycin-resistant enterococcus faecium.

Researchers have also found a close genetic match between drug-resistant E. coli in human patients and bacteria found in poultry. In a 2018 study,14 79.8% of chicken, pork and turkey samples from stores in Flagstaff, Arizona, were contaminated with E. coli.

Blood and urine samples from patients at a major medical center in the area revealed E. coli in 72.4% of those who were diagnosed with a UTI. A strain of E. coli known as E. coli ST131 showed up in the meat samples and the human UTI samples.

"Our results suggest that one ST131 sublineage -- ST131-H22 -- has become established in poultry populations around the world and that meat may serve as a vehicle for human exposure and infection," the researchers noted,15 adding that this E. coli lineage is just one of many that may be transmitted from poultry and other meat sources to people.

In essence, the research showed that eating chicken treated with antibiotics can cause you to develop resistance to the last known line of defense against bacterial pathogens, which is a steep price to pay for inexpensive meat. By 2023, multidrug-resistant E. coliwas found in 68.3% of meat samples in Spain.16

Factory Farmed Chicken Linked to UTI Mechanism of Infection

The featured study found that cranberry products had a significant impact on preventing UTIs in women. Women are also more prone to urinary tract infections, in part because of a shorter urethra. This is the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body. The prostate gland in adult men17 produces a bacterial growth inhibitor secreted directly into the urinary system, which may help prevent urinary tract infections.

Research in 201518 demonstrated that while several pathogens can trigger a UTI, the most common are E. coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Enterococcus faecalis and Staphylococcus saprophyticus. Of these, about 90% of UTIs are caused by E. coli,19 which is normally found in the intestinal tract.

E. coli only triggers an infection when it's present in high numbers in areas of the body where it should not be, like the urinary tract system. The usual signs and symptoms of a UTI20 include frequent urges to urinate and burning with urination, lower abdominal pain, blood in the urine and or cloudy or foul-smelling urine.

Your body cannot flush E. coli out of the body with urine because the bacteria are covered with finger-like projections called fimbria.21 These are made of an amino acid sugar complex that makes them sticky. The stickiness allows the bacteria to adhere to the wall of the bladder and increases the potential for the bacteria to work its way up to the kidneys. At this point, the situation can become serious.

A complication of untreated or unsuccessfully treated UTIs is sepsis. When the infection is caused by a drug-resistant bacterium, sepsis becomes more likely. An infusion of vitamin C, hydrocortisone and thiamine has been shown to impressively reduce mortality from sepsis, but many health care professionals are still unaware of this revolutionary treatment.22

A UTI in an older individual can trigger behavioral changes, such as agitation, social withdrawal, mental confusion and even hallucinations. According to Dr. Amanda Smith, medical director at the Byrd Alzheimer's Institute at the University of South Florida, symptoms of UTI in the elderly actually tend to be primarily behavioral,23 which can result in delayed diagnosis and treatment.

Flavonoids Each Day Help Keep the Doctor Away

After many years of research, scientists have found that the nutrient value in cranberries is associated with more than preventing urinary tract infections. Since your body cannot produce iodine, you must consume it from your food. While an iodine deficiency is reemerging as a public health threat,24 it is also completely preventable in the Western world.

Scientists are only just beginning to understand the relationship that iodine has with more than the thyroid gland. Cranberries are a rich source of iodine. I suggest consuming fresh, organic cranberries or 100% cranberry juice with no added sugar. If you have urinary tract stones25 or take blood thinning medication like warfarin,26 it's important to avoid cranberries.

Research data27 have also determined that cranberries can have a sustained benefit on the cardiovascular system of healthy individuals. In an initial pilot study with five young men, the data showed cranberry powder improved flow mediated dilation,28 which is a noninvasive assessment of endothelial function proven to be an effective prognostic indicator of future cardiovascular events.29

Following the pilot study, 45 healthy men consumed cranberry powder equivalent to 100 grams of fresh cranberries for one month. In just two hours after the first dose, researchers measured a significant Improvement in flow mediated dilation,30 which was duplicated at the end of the study. They also identified cranberry metabolites that could be used to predict the positive effects they found in the flow mediated dilation measurements.


A 23-year study31 published in 2019 also demonstrated that a diet high in flavonoids can lower the risk of heart disease, cancer and all-cause mortality. The researchers studied the diet of 56,048 Danish people and found even moderate consumption of foods high in flavonoids was inversely associated with all-cause, cardiovascular and cancer mortality. After reaching 500 mg per day, the association between intake and lower risk plateaued.

In 2015,32 researchers observed that the more flavonoid-rich foods people ate, the less apt they were to develop heart disease, experience a nonfatal heart problem or die from heart disease. A 2013 meta-analysis33 demonstrated the incidence of breast cancer was "significantly decreased" in women who reported high intake.

Among the nutrients packed into cranberries is resveratrol. This is another phytochemical that has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic properties. Resveratrol helps protect against age-related diseases, including improving blood flow to the brain, suppressing inflammatory effects in microglia and astrocytes34 and protecting against vascular dementia.35

Preventing and Treating a UTI at Home

Prevention is, of course, your best option. Fermented foods such as kefir, sauerkraut and other fermented vegetables are great for your overall health, including your urinary system. Women can take some specific hygiene steps to maintain a healthy urinary tract:

Drink plenty of pure, filtered water every day

Urinate when you feel the need; don't put off going to the bathroom

Wipe from front to back to prevent bacteria from entering your urethra

Take showers instead of tub baths; avoid hot tubs/Jacuzzis

Cleanse male and female genital areas prior to sexual intercourse

Avoid using feminine hygiene sprays, which may irritate your urethra

Use a bidet


As mentioned earlier, the fimbria (fingerlike projections) of E. coli is made of a sticky glycoprotein called lectin, which is why the bacteria are so hard to flush out. It's not impossible, however, even without an antibiotic. While antibiotics are typically the go-to treatment, you may want to start with a D-mannose supplement.36

Mannose is produced by your cells and covers the internal lining of your urinary organs. The lectin on the bacteria's fimbria binds to mannose. This is why the bacteria adhere to the walls of your urinary system. When you take D-mannose, the E. coli adheres to the mannose in your urine and is then flushed out when you urinate. As the bacterial load is reduced, they're more easily overtaken by agents of your immune system.

According to Dr. Jonathan Wright, medical director of Tahoma Clinic in Tukwila, Washington, infections caused by a bacterium other than E. coli may be eliminated by taking a saturated solution of potassium iodide (SSKI). Both treatments are recommended by Wright, who is also author of the book, "D-Mannose and Bladder Infection: The Natural Alternative to Antibiotics."

For UTIs caused by bacteria or fungi other than E. coli, Wright suggests taking 15 drops of SSKI in water every three to four hours for two days (three days maximum). In order to know which of these treatments would work best, you'd need to perform a culture test to identify the bacteria responsible for your infection.

Alternatively, Wright suggests taking D-mannose first, and if significant improvement doesn't occur, move on to SSKI. A culture test is also advisable when symptoms do not quickly abate to rule out a drug-resistant infection, as this will require close medical supervision to avoid serious complications.

FOOD COLLAPSE INCOMING: Ongoing drought forces farmers to abandon wheat crops

This article may contain statements that reflect the opinion of the author

Natural News) The ongoing drought in large parts of the United States is forcing wheat farmers to abandon a portion of their crop at rates not seen in over a century.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture(USDA), producers, especially in the U.S. Plains region, are expected to harvest only about 67 percent of their planted acres, the lowest harvest ratio since 1917. (Related: Food collapse incoming: Globalist war on nitrogen emissions putting entire global food supply at risk.)

The high rate of abandonment stemmed from years of freak weather patterns in the Great Plains that took their toll on American grainfields. Many wheat plants planted this winter were stunted by a lack of moisture, making many unable to produce the heads of grain that are harvested for their nutrients.

Farmers who are leaving many of their acres unharvested are filing crop insurance claims for failed acres or abandoning wheat altogether to plant something else.

Justin Gilpin, chief executive officer of the trade group Kansas Wheat, announced that his organization is about to take a tour of Kansas, the country’s top wheat-growing state, to allow analysts to take surveys of fields and make production estimates.

“We’ll see short wheat, thin strands, some wheat that looks really good and a lot of fields that aren’t going to be harvested,” he said.

Kansas, Texas wheat suffering greatly

All told, some 37.5 million acres were planted last fall, either with soft red or hard red winter wheat. The Agriculture Department’s estimate suggests that just 25.3 million of those planted acres of wheat have grown anything worth harvesting.

Of the 67 percent of wheat that can be harvested, the USDA noted that just 28 percent of that crop has been rated to be in good-to-excellent condition.

The soft red winter wheat crop is used mainly as animal feed and for processed foods, while hard red winter wheat is used in baked goods. Hard red wheat also represents about 40 percent of total U.S. wheat production and can be grown either as a cash crop or a cover crop.

In Kansas, the top producer of hard red winter wheat, around 10 percent of the crop was abandoned. Meanwhile, in Texas, a whopping 65 percent of hard red wheat acres were abandoned.

Both abandonment rates are well above the historical averages of six percent for Kansas and 55 percent in Texas over the past 10 years. They are also well above the rate of abandonment predicted by agriculture analytics firm Gro Intelligence of eight percent in Kansas and 60 percent in Texas.

The punishing conditions the country’s hard red winter wheat have been in are underlined by the USDA’s crop conditions report. In Kansas, only 11 percent of the crop is in good-to-excellent condition, far below the 38 percent five-year average. Hard red winter wheat in Texas, Nebraska and Oklahoma aren’t much better at 20 percent, 12 percent and seven percent, respectively.

Wheat futures rising as analysts predict more trouble for crops

The USDA warned that the high rate of abandonment will drag American wheat supplies to levels lower than analysts were expecting. Levels are expected to fall to their lowest in 16 years.

This will keep domestic prices elevated and lead to more wheat imports from rival producers in countries like Canada and Argentina.

Concerns about tight U.S. wheat supplies and ongoing troubles in the Black Sea caused by the Russian special military operation in Ukraine are causing wheat futures to rise.

Futures for hard red winter wheat, the staple variety grown in drought-stricken states like Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas, surged by nearly seven percent following the release of the USDA’s data. This is the biggest intraday gain for the most-active contract since October 2022.

Reduce your toxic load & improve skin health

Did you know that synthetic fibres commonly used in clothing production, such as polyester and nylon, are manufactured using harmful chemicals and toxic substances? By wearing garments made with these fibres, you expose yourself to potential health risks.

Clothes are like a second skin on the body; therefore, the fabrics you wear matter. Your skin is the largest organ of the body. Its pores absorb everything you put on. In other words, anything you place on the skin can find its way inside your body – the skin is non-selective, so it absorbs both the toxic and non-toxic components of what is applied to the skin. For example, herbal creams or natural essential oils have a therapeutic effect; however, aluminium-based deodorants are toxic and are a burden on your health.

Wearing synthetic fibres exposes you to poisonous chemicals that leach into the skin and may wreak havoc on your health. These fibres can also irritate the skin, clog up pores and increase your toxic load. Natural fibres don’t damage your skin and body as they are non-toxic, breathable and hypoallergenic.

To decrease your exposure to toxins and enhance your body’s well-being, it’s a good idea to wear garments that are made from natural, non-GMO organic fibres. Discover the dangers of synthetic chemicals, how these toxins may affect your health and the alternative clothing options available.


What’s wrong with synthetic fibres?

Despite their popularity, synthetic fibres present a range of health and environmental risks.

In addition to being made from petroleum-based chemicals, synthetic fibres also contain other hazardous chemicals, heavy metals and plasticsthat can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin and cause serious health problems, including:

      • Cadmium and antimony – carcinogens that are toxic to the heart, lungs, liver and skin.
      • Formaldehyde and benzene are linked to cancer, reproductive problems, lung disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
      • Perfluorochemicals (PFCs) accumulate in the body and have shown to cause cancer, reproductive issues and liver and kidney damage.
      • PET (polyethylene terephthalate) and PCDT (poly-1, 4-cyclohexylene-dimethylene terephthalate) – when heated, these chemicals can leach antimony, phthalates and bisphenol A (BPA) which are associated with endocrine disruption, reproductive toxicity, neurological damage and cancer.
      • Dyes and bleaches are commonly used to create vibrant colours or lighten clothes. Azo dyes are made from petroleum-based chemicals and contain high levels of carcinogens that are known to cause cancer. Bleaches (chlorine and peroxide) can irritate the eyes, nose, throat and skin and cause respiratory problems.

Can negatively affect the pH of the skin and damage the skin’s acid mantle which may make you more prone to allergies, rashes, breakouts and skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis and eczema. Synthetic fibres are not as breathable as natural fibres so they tend to trap sweat, dirt and oil more easily on the skin which can imbalance the pH level of the skin causing it to become dry, cracked, irritated and inflamed.

Hinders skin thermoregulation. Synthetic fibres can create a barrier between the body and the environment, trapping the body’s heat and reducing its ability to regulate temperature. This can cause the body to become overheated and lead to fatigue, irritability and reduced energy. The chemicals in the fibres can also dysregulate hormones which can affect energy levels.

May trigger allergies as synthetic fibres release tiny particles of dust and lint when washed that can irritate the eyes and lungs. These particles are especially dangerous to those with asthma. 

Damages to the environment and eco-system – synthetic fibres are not biodegradable (they don’t break down naturally) and therefore remain in the environment for a very long time after disposal. The build-up of synthetic fibres in the environment can harm wildlife and disrupt the natural balance of ecosystems.

Contributes to air and water pollution. During the production process, petroleum substances and other chemicals are released into the air and water. Synthetic fibres can also be difficult to recycle because they are made from a mix of materials. This results in most synthetic fibres being sent to landfills which can lead to the release of hazardous chemicals into the environment.

Increases greenhouse gas emissions and carbon dioxide into the air due the large amount of energy and water required to make synthetic fibres. These emissions contribute to global warming which is one of the main causes of climate change.

Unethical production processes. Most mass-produced clothing is made in third world countries where factory employees work in appalling conditions for a pittance (whilst clothing brands make huge profits). Workers are also subjected to dangerous chemicals and other hazardous materials without proper safety precautions.

What are natural fibres?

Natural fibres are fibres made from materials found in nature such as cotton, wool, silk, linen and bamboo – they offer superior comfort, breathability and durability. Natural fibres are more environmentally friendly than synthetic fabrics as they are biodegradable and require less energy and water to produce. They are also more durable, so they last longer and retain their shape and colour.

Cotton is one of the most popular natural fibres used in clothing as it’s highly durable and lightweight, making it a great choice for everyday wear. It is a renewable resource that comes from the cotton plant. When harvested, the cotton plant produces a fluffy white fibre that is used to make fabrics. Cotton is known for its therapeutic health benefits – it is 100% hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites and mildew. It doesn’t irritate or damage the skin or cause allergic reactions, making it ideal for those with allergies or asthma. Additionally, cotton is very breathable and can absorb and wick away moisture, helping to keep skin cool, dry and comfortable and preventing sweat and bacteria from accumulating (which can lead to skin infections). Cotton naturally absorbs and traps toxins such as pollutants (smog and pesticides) which can help reduce your toxic load.

Be aware that most cotton is GMO (genetically modified organism), made using biotechnology. The genetic material of cotton has been altered to make it resistant to pests, diseases and other environmental factors. It is a different type of cotton and therefore does not have the same properties as non-GMO organic cotton. Genetic engineering of cotton involves using toxic chemicals such as growth regulators, antibiotics, herbicides, insecticides and pesticides. When you buy GMO-free cotton, you can rest assured that no harmful chemicals are used during the manufacturing process. 75% of the cotton manufactured worldwide is GMO, and only 1% of cotton production is organic cotton.


Health benefits of wearing natural fibres

Heat regulation – less overheating and sweating. Natural fibres are porous, highly breathable and excellent at wicking moisture away from the skin and out of the fabric. This can help regulate body temperature and keep the skin dry and comfortable, even in humid climates.

Hypoallergic – the dense fabric structure of natural fibres prevents the build-up of soil and dirt which can trigger allergies and skin reactions.

Non-toxic and free from harmful chemicals so they are healthier for your body and the environment. 

Improve skin health and prevent premature skin ageing. Natural fibres are gentle on the skin, reducing skin irritation and rashes.

The Amazing Healing Properties of 13 Common Fruits

MAY 29, 2023

By Sayer Ji

Crouching Produce Stand, Hidden Medicine Cabinet

Fruit is not only enjoyable to eat — as it should be, considering the very word fruit stems from the Latin word frui, meaning “to enjoy, use” — but it also nourishes and protects the body with powerful, built-in medicinal activity. Fruits are by design a “perfect food,” intended to entice animals to consume them in order to help disseminate their seeds, for instance. This means that unlike grains, and other lectin- and anti-nutrient-rich organisms, e.g. wheat, tomato, beans, we humans have chosen to make into our food, fruits are less likely to come equipped with “invisible thorns,” as they benefit as much in being eaten as we do in eating them. Also, like our now hardwired biological dependence on obtaining vitamin Cfrom external sources (unlike most animals we can not produce it from glucose), countless millennia of fruit consumption has left our genetic infrastructure in need of continual resupply of many of the key vitamins and phytocompounds they contain copious quantities of.

With this symbiotic relationship between fruit-bearing plant and seed-disseminating animal in mind, the following healing fruit facts won’t seem so unbelievable…


Grapefruit – Infection: The seeds of this fruit, at a dose of 5 to 6 every 8 hours for two weeks, have been shown effective in eradicating urinary tract infections, including drug-resistant strains.[i]

Pineapple – Cancer: The enzyme bromelain, extracted from pineapple, has been shown to be more potent that the chemotoxic agent 5-fluorouracil in killing cancer, in the animal model.[ii]

Watermelon – Hypertension: Watermelon contains amino acids, such as L-citrulline, which help the blood vessels dilate naturally, countermanding endothelial dysfunction and reducing blood pressure. [iii] [iv]

Cherry – Inflammation/Pain: Compounds within cherries known as anthrocyanins have been shown to be as effective as NSAID drugs in reducing pain and inflammation.[v] [vi]

Lemon – Kidney Stones: Lemonade therapy has been shown to be a reasonable alternative for patients with kidney stones.[vii]

Papaya – Skin Ulcers: Used in Jamaica as a traditional medicine, new research indicates that topical application of unripe papaya fruit on chronic skin ulcers generates a positive response rate 72% of the time.[viii]

Pomegranate – Hormones: Pomegranate is the fruiting ovary of the pomegranate plant, contains potent plant estrogens which do not stimulate unregulated cell proliferation, and may function as an ideal “back up” ovary for women’s hormone health.[ix]

Kiwifruit – Cholesterol – When used with hawthorn, kiwifruit extract was found to be superior to simvastatin (trade name Zocor) in lowering cholesterol in mice fed a high cholesterol diet.[x]

Cranberries – Cranberry: The extract of this berry has been shown as effective as the drug trimethoprim in the prevention of recurrent urinary tract infections in older women, without increasing the risk of antibiotic resistance/super-infection and/or fungal infection.[xi]

Elderberry – Flu: If you are lucky enough to find elderberry on your produce stand, you will find that it has been used as a natural anti-respiratory infection remedy since ancient times. New research confirms that it contains flavonoids which compare favorably with the antiviral drug Tamiflu at binding to and preventing H1N1 infection. [xii]

Coconut – Gastric Ulcers: both the milk and the water of the coconut have been shown to have anti-ulcerogenic properties against NSAID drug-induced mucosal erosion.[xiii]

Plantain – Diarrhea: Plantain has been used to treat diarrhea by traditional cultures as a folk medicine, but clinical research now confirms its value in the dietary management of persistent diarrhea in hospitalized children, in relation to diarrheal duration, weight gain and costs.[xiv]

Strawberries – Heart Disease: Many red fruits and berries have now been shown to be valuable for heart health, but strawberry is beginning to emerge as uniquely beneficial to cardiovascular health. Strawberry powder has been shown to improve the lipid profile and oxidative stress markers, and markers of atherosclerosis, in women with metabolic syndrome.[xv] [xvi] Strawberry extract has also been shown to relax the lining of the blood vessels, which may reduce high blood pressure and disburden the heart muscle from over-exertion.[xvii] Even the strawberry leaf extract has been shown to increase coronary artery blood flow in a manner similar to hawthorn extract.[xviii]

Story at a glance:

  • Pairwise, an agricultural biotechnology company, created Conscious Greens Purple Power Baby Greens Blend, the first CRISPR-edited food available to U.S. consumers.
  • The company used CRISPR, or clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat, to edit mustard greens’ DNA, removing a gene that gives them their pungent flavor.
  • The greens are first being rolled out in restaurants in St. Louis, Springfield, Massachusetts, and the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, before heading to U.S. grocery stores — beginning in the Pacific Northwest.
  • In 2022, researchers with Boston Children’s Hospital revealed that using CRISPR in human cell lines increased the risk of large rearrangements of DNA, which could increase cancer risk.
  • Because regulators don’t consider gene-edited foods to be genetically modified organisms (GMOs), they don’t have to be labeled.

Great Reset: Dutch Government To Buy Farms As Thousands Face Shutdown

JUNE 13, 2023

The Dutch government is unrelenting in shutting down “pollution-emitting” farmers and forcing them to sell to the government. The lever is a severe cutback in nitrogen-based fertilizers that are essential to profitable food production. This is the epitome of the WEF’s Great Reset where “By 2030 you will own nothing and be happy.”

The farmers are about to own nothing and they are far from happy. — Technocracy News & Trends Editor Patrick Wood

By: Kurt Zindulka via Breitbart

The Dutch government launched its long-anticipated Great Reset-style farmer buyout scheme on Monday, which could potentially see upwards of ten thousand farms shut down forever to fall in line with the green agenda of the European Union.


Following years of political wrangling, the government of The Netherlands has launched its programme for buying out farms that do not comply with the EU’s Natura 2000 scheme supposedly meant to protect environmentally sensitive areas. The buyout programme will initially impact approximately 3,000 privately-owned farms which are deemed to emit too much nitrogen.

Starting next month, farmers will be able to apply for a buyout, which will be set at 120 per cent of the farm’s value. In addition to the top nitrogen emitters, the government will also offer buyouts for dairy, pig and poultry farmers to shut down in exchange for a payout of 100 per cent of their farm’s value. It is expected that some 8,000 farmers will be eligible for the second scheme, Dutch public broadcaster NOS reports.

In total, the government has allocated 1.4 billion euros to cover the two programmes. The buyout scheme, which will last until next April, will remain voluntary for now; however, the Dutch government has previously suggested that if uptake is not high enough it may be forced to impose mandatory buyouts.

The farmers’ group Agractie expressed concern over the launch, saying that while a website has been opened to allow farmers to see if they are eligible for a buyout, the other options, such as reducing emissions, are not currently explained, meaning that farmers cannot accurately judge which direction to take.

The move to shut down potentially thousands of farms in The Netherlands, despite the ongoing food crisis, could have a significant impact further afield given the country’s status as Europe’s largest exporter of meat and one of the largest dairy exporters in the world.

There has been widespread rejection of the government’s green agenda; however, with farmers launching large-scale tractor protests across the country over the past two years, which have shut down highways and critical infrastructure.

The resentment against the globalist government also saw the populist Farmer-Citizen Movement (BBB) sweep to victory in the Senate and local elections earlier this year, becoming the largest party in the country after previously holding zero seats. Yet, the neo-liberal coalition government of Prime Minister Mark Rutte was able to cobble together enough support to remain in power for the time being.

Some farmers have already expressed that they have no intention of participating in the buyout scheme and plan to hold on to their property. One dairy and poultry farmer Elton van Ginkel told the Nieuwsuur current affairs programme: “Over my dead body. I’ll move on, even if it’s with two cows.”

Another farmer, from the Gelderland province — the chief target of the scheme — Kalverboer Ben Apeldoorn said:

The sector itself has already reduced 8 per cent nitrogen in recent years despite the lack of policy. We are afraid it will never be enough. Even if we were to reduce nitrogen by half, it’s not good enough.

He said that the political elites in The Hague will only be satisfied “when the last farmer is gone”, adding: “While the rest of the economy can continue to grow. Why should we participate in this process? We just have to be offered the right to exist.”

We really must start practising to be a breathrens by this rate. First it was attack on meat, now even vegans are in danger from eating.

All these gene edited foods will cause more obesity, inflammation and unable to remove toxins etc.

I feel ill just by looking fat explosion on the high streets. Everywhere I look......

Luckily, I am fasting. 😁

How long do you fast for?

If the Netherlands are anything to go by we’ll all be forced to start fasting. 

I used to be able to fast for days back when I smoked green, not anymore though. I’m lucky if I make it a day, more because I do a lot of physical work outdoors and if you ain’t got the calories in you, you literally can’t work. 

Drove past a Maccy Ds yesterday, nearly retched, it smelt so fatty, sickly and artificial. 
Drove past a Pub restaurant, smelt caramelised beef and charcoal grills that had never been cleaned, now THAT made me hungry!

         LastOneLeft’s Organic Potting Soil recipe: Tips on how to produce a large amount of quality compost for next to nothing.

(We’re talking tons here, So you can grow as much fruit and veg as you like) 


Worm Castings: If you’ve started you’re own mini worm farm as I mentioned earlier in the thread then more power to you, we’ll be using worm castings in the mix. 

A good nitrogen base: We’ll be using old composted cattle manure from small independent farmers. I bought 6 tons for £15, but I had to pick it up myself. You probably won’t need this much. Have an ask around. 


Composted grass clippings, sawdust and wood chips or normal garden waste. You may be able to pick up this material from your local council dump, or you might have some yourself.

Stinging Nettles: these act in the same way as seaweed and deliver a punch of trace minerals amino’s and nutrients plus feed beneficial microbiology. They are free and can be collected anywhere, compost them first! 


Gravel: instead of spending a lot of money on perlite or hydro clay, gravel is an inexpensive way of creating the same effect in the soil mix: air pockets and spaces for the plant roots to grow around, increasing nute and oxygen uptake and therefore increased yield. A ton was £36 back a couple of years ago, although now I’m sure it’s gone up. Wash gravel before use.

Charcoal: If you’ve had a bonfire recently save the charcoal and ash leftover. Charcoal sweetens the soil making it more alkaline in balance with the acidic manure, and contains potassium and carbon. Soak the charcoal in a bucket of water for a day to remove the excess materials. 


The mix: 


Mix the cattle manure compost with the garden waste compost 50/50. 

Add 10% of the mix’s quantity of worm castings. 


Add as much nettles compost as you can. 

Add 30% of the mix’s quantity of gravel. 

Then add 10% of the mix’s quantity of charcoal. 

Turn over by hand with a spade, making sure all the ingredients are evenly distributed. 

Bingo! There should be enough nutrients in the mix to feed to halfway through flowering. Use some charcoal water, sugar water and worm castings liquid to boost after this. 
To make the sugar water, dissolve one flat teaspoon of normal sugar or molasses in two litres of water. Add sparingly.

Happy gardening


Glad I bought a compost bin a couple of months ago! It's full of nettles and other wilted "weeds" from the back yard, plus my veg peelings.
