Titanium dioxide banned in the EU is sold freely in the U.S.

Titanium dioxide, a food additive in chewing gum, cakes, candies, breads and ice cream, is linked to a wide range of adverse health effects, particularly genotoxicity (a precursor to cancer) and intestinal inflammation. It is banned in the European Union but found all over grocery shelves in the U.S.

Cancer causing weed killer on U.S. crops

Atrazine is the second-most widely used weed killer in the United States, with more than 70 million pounds are applied across the nation each year, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It is linked to various cancers, premature birth and birth defects. In the U.S., it is one of the most commonly reported contaminants in groundwater and public drinking water, according to the EPA. The herbicide has been banned for use in the European Union since 2004.

An Interesting Acute from Susan Sahota

The most significant case I can think of was a neighbour who had been in hospital. He had blood coming from his rear, his right lung had collapsed and although normally an extremely fit, athletic young man (more of that later) he could barely hold his body upright and could not control the movement in his eyes. It was very difficult to witness how a man could change.

He had been in hospital but as is the state of the health services in this country, he was ‘allowed’ to go home. I checked all the remedies in my kit then. The last one I noticed was Crotalus Horridus. I remembered from a Robin Murphy lecture, that   he described it as an ‘end of life remedy’.

I read aloud through the rubrics for Crotalus in Boericke and the young man could not believe how it covered the symptoms he was experiencing.  Anthrax was mentioned under skin and the house went quiet. I mentioned above that he was a very fit athletic type, he is a sheep shearer and travels across the globe, Australia, NZ, Chile, USA, Italy etc. His face dropped and he reported that prior to becoming ill he had worked in the worst conditions of his life.

My first thought was ‘I have a child in the house’.  He had palpitations as he had a collapsed lung. I found some 200c and administered it. His lungs returned to normal function the following day, and he recovered quickly. He continued travelling the globe with his work.

This experience really made me question the disease/ bacteria or terrain theory. I still see it as my greatest achievement and undoubtedly saved his life. I know he is grateful along with his family.
