6 Scientifically Proven Features Men Find Attractive In Women… But…

Published

on

It’s funny — just the other day I wrote about how we should pay less attention to our physical appearance and work toward letting go of its power to affect our mood and lives. Then I come across this interesting video about how science has discovered links between certain female characteristics and male attraction. It made me think for a second that perhaps there’s no hope; that maybe we are just programmed to like certain things. I was glad to find that’s not quite the case.

Part of the reason why I wanted to write this is that I figured a lot of people will be exposed to this video without the benefit of hearing an important perspective along with it. I share that perspective below.

One of the best things to come out of the video below has to do with makeup and cosmetics. One thing I always find interesting is our culture’s obsession with cosmetics. It’s an industry created entirely for the purpose of profits with absolutely no necessity involved, and yet it is one of the largest industries out there. Why? Is it because we are programmed as beings to want to be attractive in those ways? Or is it because we have been sold on an idea?

A Programmed Industry?

Oddly enough, these studies revealed that men actually prefer women who wear less or no makeup. It’s interesting because here we have an industry telling us what is attractive and what we need to be of worth, and yet the opposite sex doesn’t even find that to be true in the majority. But women go on spending money, applying toxic chemicals to their faces and becoming less healthy, all the while becoming less attractive to men in the process. I thought it was a fascinating set of realizations that show the amazing power of marketing to manipulate our psyche.

I’ve always been a proponent of just being yourself. I grew up finding people who were themselves, genuine, and friendly as attractive people. When it comes to women, I’ve always preferred the no-makeup look because it not only lets me see the real person, it lets me see how comfortable they are in their own skin, which to me has always been very appealing.

Important to Note

The final thing to realize before watching this is that the word “science” does not mean conclusive and irrefutable fact. Nor does it mean we suddenly have to shift our focus onto these attributes in order to look good. At the end of the day, what people will find most attractive is your ability to be a good, honest, and loving person. If we could focus on that as much as we do our appearance, the world would be a very different place.

These types of videos can circulate and suddenly create stigma against people who look (or don’t look) a certain way, which again promotes feelings of negative self worth. What about people who don’t naturally have some of these features? Should they feel bad because science told them they may not be good enough? Absolutely not. Owning who you are and being a good person will always trump looks in meaningful relationships.

It’s also important to do a reality check; you may notice that you disagree with some or all of the characteristics below, which suggests that these ideas are subjective, even though they have been promoted as objective.

The List

1. Specific waist to hip ratios, which suggest favourable child birthing bodies

2. Higher pitched voices

3. Long, healthy hair

4. Smiling

5. Wearing less makeup

6. Wearing the colour red

European Union Approval of Glyphosate Found To Be Based On Plagiarized Science From Monsanto

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Glyphosate, an active ingredient within Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, was recently re-licensed and approved by the European Parliament. However, MEPs found the science given to them was plagiarized, full of industry science written by Monsanto.

  • Reflect On:

    With so much science showing it's harmful to humans and the environment, and the fact that several dozen countries have made it illegal, why is it still approved in the UK, Canada, and US? Among a few other places.

It’s hard to know where to begin when it comes to glyphosate, an active ingredient used in Monsanto’s infamous ‘Roundup herbicide,’ a product that’s illegal in many countries (not including Canada and the United States). For a number of years, these countries have been citing the devastating health and environmental effects of Roundup herbicide, namely regarding glyphosate. Sri Lanka, for example, completely banned the product because of it’s link to deadly kidney disease, whereas many other countries have cited its carcinogenic effects. The science is quite clear, and it’s been coming out for decades. Fernando Manas, Ph.D. at the National University of Rio Cuarto in Argentina, outlines how “There is evidence of high levels of genetic damage in people of Marcos Juarez (Argentina), which may result from unintentional exposure to pesticides.” (source)

Nobody can really argue against why glyphosate shouldn’t be approved anywhere in the world, especially when you take a look at the science. Glyphosate recently made headlines, as the case regarding school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson was the first lawsuit claiming that glyphosate causes cancer to go to trial. There are thousands upon thousands of similar pending cases. Any jury that reviews all of the scientific evidence will not be able to rule otherwise, and Johnson’s case was a great example that showed glyphosate caused his cancer.

How are these products approved? It comes as a result of corrupt regulatory agencies here in Canada as well as within the US, specifically the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centres for Disease Control  and Prevention (CDC). The list of examples is very long when it comes to corruption and government connections to corporations like Monsanto. This is the only way these products get approved, it’s not science, it’s simply lobbying efforts and shady politics.

“It is commonly believed that Roundup is among the safest pesticides… Despite its reputation, Roundup was by far the most toxic among the herbicides and insecticides tested. This inconsistency between scientific fact and industrial claim may be attributed to huge economic interests, which have been found to falsify health risk assessments and delay health policy decisions.” – R. Mesnage et al., Biomed Research International, Volume 2014 (2014), article ID 179691

EU regulators recently decided to relicense glyphosate, and it came based on an assessment that was plagiarized from industry reports. It’s quite backwards that for years, health regulators have been relying on the scientific reports from the company that manufactures these products, instead of seeking out independent scientific studies.

A group of MEPs decides to commission an investigation into claims that Germany’s Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (bFr) copy-and-pasted tracts from Monsanto studies.

As the Guardian points out:

The study’s findings have been released hours before a parliamentary vote on tightening independent scrutiny of the pesticides approvals process. The authors said they found “clear evidence of BfR’s deliberate pretence of an independent assessment, whereas in reality the authority was only echoing the industry applicant’s assessment. Molly ScottCato, a Green MEP, said the scale of alleged plagiarism by the BfR authors shown by the new paper was “extremely alarming.”

Molly Scott Cato, a member of European Parliament, went on to tell the Guardian:

“This helps explain why the World Health Organization assessment on glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen was so at odds with EU assessors, who awarded this toxic pesticide a clean bill of health, brushing off warnings of its dangers.”

The study found plagiarism in half of the chapters assessing published studies on the health risk, which means that half of the science came directly from Monsanto themselves, because the plagiarism was of industry science.  And what does the industry do? Jane Goodall, although referencing GMOs, hammers home the point:

As part of the process, they portrayed the various concerns as merely the ignorant opinions of misinformed individuals – and derided them as not only unscientific, but anti-science. They then set to work to convince the public and government officials, through the dissemination of false information, that there was an overwhelming expert consensus, based on solid evidence, that GMOs were safe. (source)

This quote came from a book written by Lawyer Steven Druker, who sued the FDA and uncovered documents showing how the agency manipulated the science and corrupted scientists in order to get GMOs approved. You can read more about that in detail here.

The same thing goes for glyphosate.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) based its recommendation that glyphosate was safe for public use on the BfR’s assessment.

According to the EFSA, “The report does not provide any new scientific information that calls into question the assessment and conclusions of glyphosate. EFSA stands firmly behind the integrity of its risk assessment process and its conclusions on glyphosate.”

Jo Lewis, the Soil Associations policy director told the Guardian:

“It is unacceptable that pesticide-industry studies receive greater recognition than scientific peer-reviewed open literature in regulatory decision-making. Whilst this paper focuses on the US EPA, similar criticisms have been made of EU decisions and we fear that outside the EU, pressure to approve pesticides will increase.”

Again, it’s weird how this is even a debate. This has been known for a very long time, and we’ve seen similar happenings with DDT in the past.

“Children today are sicker than they were a generation ago. From childhood cancers to autism, birth defects and asthma, a wide range of childhood diseases and disorders are on the rise. Our assessment of the latest science leaves little room for doubt; pesticides are one key driver of this sobering trend.” – October 2012 report by Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) (source)(source)

Keep in mind that the use of glyphosate has skyrocketed, a 1500% increase from 1995 to 2005 was seen, and 100 million pounds of this stuff is used every year on more than a billion acres in the United States alone.

It’s found in our food, our beverages, our favourite snacks, etc.

It’s even been found in the breast milk of mothers, and in urine samples of people across Europe. (source)

The main toxic effects of glyphosate as identified by MIT’s Dr. Stephanie Seneff include:

  • Kills beneficial gut bacteria and allows pathogens to overgrow
  • Interferes with function of cytochrome p450 (CYP enzymes)
  • Chelates important minerals (iron, cobalt, manganese, etc)
  • Interferes with synthesis of aromatic amino acids and methionine – leads to shortages in critical neurotransmitters and folate
  • Disrupts sulfate synthesis and sulfate transport

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, despite the power these corporations hold over government regulatory agencies, it’s human beings that are actually spraying this stuff. This is why change needs to occur at an individual level. One day, no human will agree to spray or use Roundup herbicide, because our lives literally depend on it. We’re simply being used as tools by these corporations, and they profit off our ignorance. Our own consciousness is being used against us. The lies and the scientific fraud that occur in order to get these products on the market actually convince people that they are safe. It’s still hard for some people to accept let alone entertain the idea that our regulatory agencies would ever knowingly do something to harm us.

This is why awareness is so important, and why we must do our own research.

Ex US Dept. Of State Official Says Existence Of Elite Pedophile Rings Are “NOT Shocking!”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A former long time US government insider, Steve Pieczenik, recently tweeted about elite level pedophilia, hashtagging it on twitter and emphasizing that it's "NOT! Surprising."

  • Reflect On:

    With so many people like Steve speaking out, why do many of us still believe this is a conspiracy when there is evidence that women and children are actually suffering?

Steve Pieczenik is a former United States Department of State official and a Harvard trained psychiatrist with a doctorate in international relations from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He held many roles within the US political system, including as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Henry Kissinger, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Regan and George H.W. Bush.

Now, if you’ve done research into US politics, being associated with names like Kissinger and Bush automatically raise a red flag. What’s even more concerning is that he was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, a group many consider to be ‘wicked’ while hiding behind good deeds. However, he was removed from the membership as early as October 2012, which was around the same time he started to “blow the whistle.”

Not everyone from ‘within’ is part of this strange clique that many people are becoming aware of today. The clique that Donald Trump doesn’t seem to be part of, which is a huge step, and is something we haven’t seen for a long time. That’s not to say we support his presidency whatsoever, we’re just stating that he doesn’t seem to be part of the Deep State. Nevertheless, many from within are starting to have a shift in consciousness, and feel a deep need to let the public know what’s really going on.

Despite his credentials, Pieczenik’s statements have gone completely ignored by mainstream media. In 1982, Pieczenik was mentioned in a New York Times article as “a psychiatrist who has treated C.I.A. employees.” In 2001, he operated as chief executive officer of Strategic Intelligence Associates, a consulting firm.

He’s been an insider for years and is one of many from within who have a much clearer idea of what is going on behind the scenes, despite the narrative that’s controlled and televised by the establishment’s media mouthpieces.

Pieczenik is a legend for speaking his truth, and he deserves to at least be listened to.

It’s interesting to review how ‘elite level pedophilia’ hit the mainstream over the past couple years, bringing up Pizzagate at first, which was quickly labelled a ‘conspiracy theory,’ and then again when the ‘Q anon’ phenomenon began to surface, which mainstream media brushed off as a ‘conspiracy’ yet again.

You don’t have to look far to see that this kind of thing isn’t a conspiracy theory. The victims are starting to come forward, and people like Pieczenik are speaking up about it. Not long ago, an MSNBC news report even implicated Hillary Clinton in covering up a pedophile ring within the state department.

A lot of this is simply labelled as ‘fake news’ by the establishment because it implicates many of its members. It’s also easy to label it as such because some of it is so unbelievable that it’s hard for the mind to accept.

Register to watch our exclusive 4-part interview series with Anneke.

The truth is that we have more than enough information to at least warrant a proper investigation.

The more we continue to refer to this type of thing as a conspiracy theory, the more we allow those who are involved to continue hurting and abusing innocent women and children who have no way out.

We are talking about ritual abuse, and it seems to start at the Vatican, bleeding down into the government and other power structures. It’s a big club, and we’re obviously not in it. Let’s not forget Jeffrey Epstein, a convicted pedophile of the Royal Family, similar to the relationship Jimmy Savile had with the Royals as well.

Even foreign politicians have suggested that western politics is associated with pedophilia and Satanism, Vladimir Putin being one of the latest examples.

This is why I wasn’t shocked when I came across the tweet below, discussing the news that came out at the end of last year stating that celebrity Sacha Baron Cohen found a potential pedophile ring while taping the show “Who is America.”  Cohan was quoted as saying, “We immediately turned over the footage to the FBI because we thought, perhaps there’s a pedophile ring in Las Vegas that’s operating for these very wealthy men.”

You may be asking: Why hasn’t the FBI done anything? (Ted Gunderson, former FBI special agent and head of their L.A office did a lot of work in this area).  If you want the answer to that question, retired police detective Jon Wedger, with over 25 years of service in the investigation of child abuse, explains who is involved in this ring and how it operates continually without ever being taken down. It’s because, for the most part, when you take this information to your superior, they are already aware of these activities and fail to act on any information. The ones we go to solve this problem may actually be condoning it.

Pieczenik has also implicated the Clintons, stating that“We know that both of them have been a major part and participant of what’s called The Lolita Express, which is a plane owned by Mr. Jeff Epstein, a wealthy multi-millionaire who flies down to the Bahamas and allows Bill Clinton and Hillary to engage in sex with minors, that is called Pedophilia.”

It’s important to note that Trump’s name was found once on the flight ledger to Lolita Island but not repeatedly as with many other people, like Bill Clinton who appeared 26 times for example. It is often believed that Trump appears to be working so hard to stop sex trafficking because of what he saw when visiting Lolita Island.

Again, given his background, and all of the evidence that’s already been put out to the public, why should anybody deem this a conspiracy theory? Why have there been no investigations? Why were Australian media outlets forced into silence when Cardinal George Pell was recently convicted on five counts of child sexual abuse? He is now the most senior official ever to be found guilty, serving as an advisor to Pope Benedict as well as Pope Francis. He’s one of the Vatican’s most powerful officials.

Children are being subjected to torture, murder, and a life full of trauma. We must understand that pedophilia within the realm of politics goes far beyond just that, it goes into ritual abuse and Satanism as well. And it’s not just politics, it’s Hollywood too. You can find it in many institutions that have amassed massive amounts of power.

Weird connections have always been observed from within, take the Obama administration for example. He appointed Kevin Jennings as Assistant Deputy Secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools at the US Department of Education. He’s a member of NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association) and supports Harry Hay, who is also in support of NAMBLA. This was more than a decade ago, but these strange connections exist all over the political system.

Another example of institutional pedophilia support can be found within the UK government and the Catholic Church, which have come under public scrutiny for claiming that victims of child sexual abuse can “consent” to their rapes. They did this in order to avoid compensating victims. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) establishes which victims get compensated, and they do so by determining whether or not the victim gave consent, even if that victim is a child. You can read more about that here.

A lot has happened since Former U.S. representative Cynthia McKinney blew the whistle about pedophilia within the government in 2005. She grilled Donald Rumsfeld on DynCorp’s child trafficking business of selling women and children. (source)

Not long after that, retired Army General James Grazioplene, who worked in the Pentagon and as the Vice President of DynCorp, faced six rape charges against minors.

There are so many connections, whistleblowers and investigations that have uncovered examples of institutional pedophilia — we just aren’t aware of them because the mainstream media often fails to report on them.

The Takeaway

What does this tell us about who we are electing as our leaders? Are they that two-faced? Many of these people are powerful members of the elite, and some of them have been made for us to idolize and almost worship. They hide behind philanthropy and good deeds, masking some very disturbing things taking place behind the scenes.

We’ve been turning a blind eye to this topic for too long and it’s time to pay attention. A big issue here is the fact that many of the people involved have also experienced the same type of trauma as a child. It’s considered normal to them, and it’s normal to many of the children who are involved today. If we as a society are going to bring this out into the open, a discussion has to happen from a place of compassion, not judgement. This is still something the human race needs to work on, because if we continue to punish and ostracize people for their wrongdoings, we will never address the root causes of the issues we wish to rid the planet of.

Watch: 9/11 Survivors & Firefighters Explain How Bombs Were Going Off In The Buildings

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A video with a father of a 9/11 victim, as well as footage from those who were inside the building on that tragic day is one of many reasons the citizenry has been calling for another investigation into 9/11, for nearly 20 years now.

  • Reflect On:

    How did 9/11 change the perception of Americans with regards to the actions of their government? The idea that it may have been an 'inside' job has many implications that may be hard for some peoples minds to accept.

We recently published an article about the fact that a Federal Grand Jury will be tasked to listen to and deliberate on evidence of a controlled demolition of all three towers on September 11th, 2001. This is exciting news, and it’s one of multiple examples that illustrate how America is far from being a democracy. Millions of Americans (well over 50 percent) have expressed their concerns over what really happened that day, and have been demanding an investigation into the events for nearly 20 years. If Americans lived in a real democracy, the voice of the people would have been heard already and an investigation would be taking place. But there have been no further investigations, and our cries continue to be ignored, which is why it’s great to see citizens standing up and taking action for themselves instead of relying solely on the government.

There is more than enough evidence to prove that foul play occurred on 9/11, and much of it comes from US intelligence agencies. For example, General Albert Stubblebine, who is credited with redesigning the U.S. Army intelligence architecture during his time as commanding general of the U.S. Army Intelligence & Security Command, has been very outspoken about 9/11, claiming that a plane did not actually hit the Pentagon. We also have peer-reviewed studies published in physics and engineering journals concluding that all three towers were brought down by a controlled demolition, a president of the United States (Donald Trump) stating that there is no way planes brought down the towers, and thousands upon thousands of architects and engineers alluding to the same thing.

You can see these articles and access those studies further down within this article, as they’re linked below the video.

And how about the fact that George H. W. Bush met with the Bin Laden family the morning of 9/11?

Regardless of what you believe, all of this information warrants an investigation, and the fact that this hasn’t been done yet simply isn’t right. Why has the US government refused to publicly investigate 9/11 for this long?

Perhaps some of the most shocking revelations regarding 9/11 come from the people who were actually there. Unfortunately, many of the people passed away during the event,  but some managed to escape the building and many firefighters on site survived as well. (See video below).

Below is a picture taken in 1997 of Robert McIlvaine (far left) and his family, including his son Bobby (far right) who died in the north tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. McIlvaine has become a vocal 9/11 truth activist, along with countless other family members of the victims of 9/11.

Bobby McIlvaine was the inspiration behind The Bobby McIlvaine World Trade Center Investigation Act, which is a draft legislation aimed at investigating the destruction of all three WTC towers. Bobby lost his life at the age of 26 when he entered the north tower, and his father has been a leading advocate for a new investigation.  You can contact your members of Congress through their website at http://AE911Truth.org/Justice or directly on your own to help with this cause.

Below is a video of Bobby’s father and a compilation of multiple clips of survivors and firefighters who were actually in the building that day. It’s really something else to watch a video of people who actually experienced this event and heard the explosions go off inside.

The Takeaway

Despite how tragic 9/11 was, it ultimately served a purpose. It ‘woke up’ millions of people to the fact that “the war on terror” is a complete sham, and that events like 9/11 are often used as justification for the infiltration of other countries to serve ulterior motives. However, 9/11 is not the only example of this. For example, the chemical gas attacks in Syria were another false-flag terrorist attack, and for the first time in history, multiple politicians actually used the term “false flag.”

But again, it’s a narrative that’s been emphasized forever. “The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaeda. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the ‘TV watcher’ to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US and the lobbyists for the US war on terrorism are only interested in making money.” – former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook (This quote was given at the House of Commons, I retrieved it from Pierre-Henri Bunel)

9/11 and other events that followed have created a massive shift in consciousness, and this change in perception is still gaining momentum.

Tragedies like 9/11 serve as a reminder that we must strive not to repeat history. We need to question the truth of these events and conduct our own research in order to prevent further corruption from occurring. These events provide us with the opportunity to see through the veils that have been blinding the masses for decades.

Take a moment to compare the narrative we were told on that day to the research we’ve uncovered nearly 20 years later. We’ve gone from thinking it’s a terrorist attack to amassing tons of studies, research, and witness testimonies in support of 9/11 being an inside job.

More and more people are waking up to the reality of what happened on 9/11, and the Fawcett will not stop dripping.
