U.S. Air Force Is Spraying 6 Million Acres With Chemicals In Response To Harvey "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Whitney Webb for Eco Watch - While the Pentagon has framed its efforts to "assist" as seeking to eliminate a potential human health risk, the particular chemical it is using to control insect populations is likely to do more harm than good. According to the Air Force, the mosquito control protocol involves spraying the "Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved and regulated material, Naled," which the Air Force insists will not be used in amounts large enough to "cause any concern for human health." However, the insecticide Naled, manufactured and sold by a strategic partner of Monsanto, is currently banned in the European Union due to the "unacceptable risk" it presents to human health. Naled is a known neurotoxin in animals and humans, as it inhibits acetylcholinesterasean enzyme essential to nerve function and communicationand has even been known to have caused paralysis. Mounting scientific evidence, including a recent Harvard study, has also pointed to Naled's responsibility for the mass die-off of North American bees. Just one day of Naled spraying in South Carolina killed more than 2.5 million bees last year. Yet, the most concerning consequence Naled poses for human health is the chemical's ability to cross the placental barriermeaning that Naled freely crosses from mother to fetus.

PCOS and Endometrial Cancer Risk: The Dilemma of Weight Loss and Weight Cycling The Well-Rounded Mama


September is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) Awareness Month. As part of our ongoing series on PCOS, today we are going to talk about endometrial cancer.

PCOS is a hormonal disorder usually characterized by very strong insulin resistance. This insulin resistance causes many problems in the body, including irregular menstrual cycles, strong susceptibility towards weight gain, unwanted hair growth on the face and body (hirsutism), hair loss on the head (alopecia), cystic acne, body tags, a strong tendency towards diabetes, infertility, and many other symptoms.

Among other risks, PCOS is associated with a high risk for endometrial cancer (cancer in the lining of the uterus). Because PCOS tends to cause an irregular menstrual cycle, a woman's uterine lining may not get sloughed off each month. Some women with PCOS have extra long cycles (35 or more days), while others go months or even years without a menstrual cycle. This causes the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) to build up excessively; in time, atypical cells may develop. This is called endometrial hyperplasia, or overgrowth of the uterine lining. This hyperplasia can eventually turn into endometrial cancer.

This is why it is so important that women with PCOS get treatment. They need to have regular periods so that this overgrowth does not occur. There are many options for this, including progesterone treatmentsbirth control pills; insulin sensitizers like...

10 Ways You Know You're In Your First Trimester

One day, my husband came home from work and looked surprised when he saw my bump. Oh! he said casually, Id forgotten you were pregnant! I looked down at the bulging mass I once called a stomach and imagined how he could possibly have forgotten such a huge thing. It must be so easy to be the non-pregnant partner. Life continues pretty much as normal, aside from the odd 11pm dash to the supermarket for mint chocolate chip ice-cream. Hes not the one who has to worry about stretch marks, taking time off work or gee, I dont know, pushing a person out of her vagina. During the first trimester, while the pregnancy is new and still feels almost mythical, you might forgive your partner for occasionally letting the pregnancy slip his mind. You wont make any such allowances during the third trimester. Thats when you're the size of an elephant with a temper to match. Meanwhile, on planet You, the pregnancy will be at the forefront of your mind.

10 Ways You Know You're In Your First Trimester

After all, how could you possibly forget the baby when its growing inside you? There might not be much to see just yet, but the pregnancy has already taken over your entire body. In fact, at times you might even wonder whether its even your body any more. Everything feels so damn different now. Here are 10 unforgettable ways you know youre in your first trimester:

#1: You Feel Like Mrs Doubtfire

Your breasts are so hot they feel like theyre on fire. You keep double checking they havent been set alight, like in that famous scene from Mrs Doubtfire. Your boobs seem to be celebrating the pregnancy with a constant eruption of red hot fireworks in your nipples.

#2: Youve Got Dried Food Stuck To Your Face

Every evening is spent exhaustingly trying to remove all the dried food from your chin. You have a full beard made from your dinner an occupational hazard of being so tired you keep falling asleep in your plate. Your nightly facial now consists of peeling dried baked beans from your face and hoping your partner didnt notice the imprint of your face in the mashed potato, where you flopped face down in utter exhaustion.

#3: You Decide What To Eat Based On How Gross It I...

Finding Yourself With Creativity Blog - Newborn Mothers

Many mothers feel like they lose themselves a little in the journey to motherhood. Perhaps its an important stage so that you can rise, like a phoenix from the ashes, as a new and improved YOU!

NM - Blog Thumbnails.png

But in that moment, when you are lost, it can be overwhelming. It can be easy to keep putting your children first and to stay lost for too long. Sometimes you keep sacrificing your own desires until you dont even know what your desire anymore.

Until you almost feel as though you dont exist.

You dont even know who you are.

As safe and comfy as it can be in that chrysalis, at some point you will need to emerge. Your children want to see your beautiful butterfly wings. Your wings will inspire your children to grow wings too!

So how do you find yourself? Where do you even start?

I personally love the idea of nurturing your spirit with creativity. Mothers are intrinsically creative. Creation is the ultimate act that defines us as mothers.

Most of us think of creativity as sewing or crocheting or knitting. But creativity is much broader. It can also be cooking or music or writing. Playing cards or board games or even video games are creative. Maybe you want to dance or sing or go on an adventure in nature. Maybe you want to go ice-skating or join a team sport.

It matters less how you indulge your creativity and more that you do it. When you dont know what you want any more you might have to practice wanting. You might need to try something on for size. It might not work, you might not like it. But each time you try something new you are exercising your desire muscle again until you find yourself.

I took drastic action and, quite literally, joined the circus! And guess what? Nothing bad happened.

In fact, my kids loved it! And they wanted to see videos of me climbing the silks and doing tricks on the trapeze.

Once I got a taste of it I couldnt stop. I had to quit circus whilst I was pregnant but I didnt want to lose touch with my creativity. So I started piano lessons, with my daughter, and now my son hears us play and he wants to start lessons too.

Your creativity nourishes you AND it nourishes your children. You dont have to sacrifice your desires for your childrens. There is enough for everyone to be happy and fulfilled.

Indian Doctors Talk Aspartame in Soda and Infertility in Men and Women "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Heather CallaghanEditor

While a sedentary lifestyle is the new modern scapegoat for all that ails us, Indian doctors are pointing fingers at ingredients commonly found in sodas: ingredients in both diet and regular.

At the beginning of summer, Indias biggest independent news network reach out to fertility and gynecological doctors to get their input on carbonated beverages and their effects on fertility in men and women.

Arvind Vaid, an IVF expert said:

Almost all of the soft drinks and sodas contain aspartame which is linked to many health problems including infertility, malformations and miscarriages.

He added that, Excess consumption leads to hormonal imbalance and fluctuation that causes ovulatory disorders and even worsens PMS.

The experts said that the problem was the isolation of two amino acids: phenylalanine and aspartic acid. When not with other amino acids, they say that...

Top 10 Books for Empowering Yourself as a Mother. Earth Based Mom Blog





Yesterday I wrote a post outlining five of the ways we tend to give away our power as mothers. It is easy to read about what not to do, but given how most of us were brought up, what *to do* instead can feel confusing and like we are at a loss. With that said, there is no destination and there is no arriving. We are always learning and growing and doing our best to stretch ourselves where we can.

Once I realized so many of the messages I recieved as a young girl and teenager didnt serve me or make sense as an adult, I dove deep into books that rocked my world. I love books for this reason. They can offer a fresh new perspective and change the way you view and approach reality. One book can be a total paradigm shift for you. I have read several such books, and that is what I want to offer you here.

The books I list below are books that I believe would greatly shift the lives of mothers and women for the better if we had them as some sort of required reading. They offer radical changes in the way we view things such as the way we birth babies, parent, take care of ourselves and our families, have sex, and ultimately live our lives. I put Mothers in the title, but really these books are for all women.

Here are my favorite books that will definitely have you feeling empowered and confident as a woman and a mother:

Study: Flu Shot Associated with Spontaneous Abortion in Pregnant Women "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Comments by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

The annual flu vaccine is the most dangerous vaccine in the market today, a fact that is not in dispute.

The most recent report from the Department of Justice submitted at this years Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) meeting revealed that the U.S. Government had settled 275 lawsuits for flu vaccine injuries and deaths, while all other vaccine injury and death settlements were 57 combined. See:

Government Issues First Report in 2017 on Vaccine Injuries and Deaths: 275 Injured 4 Dead from Flu Shot

A new study published this month and actually making news in the corporate-sponsored mainstream media reveals a clear association between the flu vaccine given to pregnant women every year and spontaneous abortion. The study was funded by the CDC with American tax payer funds, so the results had to be published somewhere. Private studies exposing anything negative about vaccines are routinely censored in the U.S.

In spite of the dangers revealed in this study and a call for further research, there was no change to the CDC recommendation that all pregnant women be vaccinated with the flu shot every year in terms of public policy.

Pot Smokers Beware of Killer Pesticides and Poison "IndyWatch Feed World"

Jon Rappoport, Guest
Waking Times

Pot smokers, environmentalists, and just plain humans: take notice.

A recent article in The Atlantic reveals highly toxic pesticides are being used on illegal pot farms in California, and the runoff is poisoning forests.

Ill quote extensively from the article and then make comments:

Secret growers are taking advantage of the states remote stretches of public landand the environmental impact is severe.

this past November, [California] residents voted yes on Proposition 64, making California the fifth state to legalize recreational pot. Almost two-thirds of the countrys total legal harvest comes from the Golden State [poisoned pot shipped everywhere]

The lethal poisons growers use to protect their crops and campsites from pests are annihilating wildlife, polluting pristine public lands, and maybe even turning up in your next bong hit.

grow sites tested positive for carbofuran, a neurotoxic insecticide that is so nasty it has been banned in the U.S., Canada and the EU. Farmers in Kenya have used it to kill lions. Symptoms of exposure range from nausea and blurred vision to convulsions, spontaneous abortions, and death.

Some 50 different toxicants have turned up at grow sites Growers use the poisons to keep rodents and other animals from eating the sugar-rich sprouting plants, from gnawing on irrigation tubing, and from invading their campsites in search of food. Acute rodenticides cause neurological damage and internal bleeding. Animals literally drown in their own blood or stumble around until theyre eaten themselves, passing the poison up the food chain to predators like owls and fishers.

Its a massive problem, says Craig Thompson, a wildlife ecologist with the U.S. Forest Service. People dont tend to grasp the industrial scale of whats going on. There are thousands of these sites in places the public thinks are pristine, with obscene amounts of chemicals at each one....

New study linking miscarriages to vaccines goes mainstream "IndyWatch Feed World"

A puzzling study of U.S. pregnancies found that women who had miscarriages between 2010 and 2012 were more likely to have had back-to-back annual flu shots that included protection against swine flu. Vaccine experts think the results may reflect the older age and other miscarriage risks for the women, and not the flu shots. Health officials say there is no reason to change the government recommendation that all pregnant women be vaccinated against the flu. They say the flu itself is a much greater danger to women and their fetuses. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reached out to a doctor's group, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, to warn them the study is coming out and help them prepare for a potential wave of worry from expectant moms, CDC officials said.

HPV Vaccines: The Pharmaceutical Menace Promoted As Prophylactic Medicine "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Catherine J. Frompovich

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization generated some information in 2014, subsequently republished online by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, which was titled Disclosures of interestsPrimary End-points for Prophylactic HPV Vaccine Trials.

Several entries sort of stand out for various reasons:

Dr Douglas Lowy reports that as part of his United States government-supported research at the National Cancer Institute (NCI)/National Institutes of Health (NIH), he is an inventor of technology that underlies the L1-based prophylactic virus-like particle (VLP) HPV vaccine and technology that underlies an L2-based candidate prophylactic HPV vaccine. The NIH has licensed the technology for the L1 VLP vaccine to Merck, the manufacturer of Gardasil, to GlaxoSmithKline, the manufacturer of Cervarix, and to Indian Immunologicals Ltd. The L2-based vaccine technology is the subject of a cooperative research and development agreement between the NCI, Johns Hopkins University, and Shantha Biotech, and has been licensed to Shantha, PanVax, Acambis Inc., and GlaxoSmithKline. United States Federal law entitles Dr Lowy to a limited share of royalties the NIH receives for these technologies.

Cuttlefish Love! "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Katja Novitskova, Earth Potential (Cuttlefish Love, Earth) (2017), digital print on aluminum, cut out display, steel and aluminum armature (all photos by the author for Hyperallergic).

Oh, these are all so dynamic and wonderful!

This fuzzy zone of magical looking is where Estonian artist Katja Novitskova operates, and her current exhibition in New Yorks City Hall Park is a wonderfully incongruous reminder that all our photos are manipulated.

EARTH POTENTIAL, a Public Art Fund exhibition, is that rare outdoor photography show that actually works. Instead of the usual billboards or placards clumsily affixed to a wall or fence, Novitskovas photographs are printed on freestanding aluminum panels between six and eight feet in diameter, lending them sculptural dimensionality. Most combine two elements one astronomic, the other microscopic printed on separate, custom-cut supports.

[]

Two of the seven pieces in EARTH POTENTIAL feature just one scientific image rather than a pair one is a bulbous cluster of orange stem cell embryos, the other a towering, pale pink strand of E. coli bacteria and they are the shows most abstract and ambiguous. Without the humor of juxtaposition and jarring shifts of scale of the other pieces, they confront us with the enormous power of scientific imagery and the frontiers of microscopic photography. They also hint at places where the boundaries of human knowledge are butting up against the limitations of human morality.
