Children today are bombarded with so much harmful advertising through television, magazines, movies, billboards, and even books.

As any parent knows, children are like sponges, and subtle messages can impact a child’s self esteem and beliefs far too easily. Quite literally, they believe nearly everything they see and read, and this undeveloped critical thinking ability can be exploited to further any number of agendas.

Constant advertising of unhealthy foods, medications, and the latest gadgets and toys doesn’t do our children any good at all. In fact, there is evidence to show that it is most definitely harming them. To learn more about this trend, you may want to read the following article: 7 Highly Disturbing Trends in Junk Food Advertising to Children.

Just look at how many obese and overweight children there are today and how many of them don’t make the connection between what they are eating and the state of their health. They have been conned into thinking that junk food makes up a large part of a normal, healthy diet. 

Many children also lack the ability to identify common fruits and vegetables, and certainly don’t understand the connection between eating these things and having a healthy body. Nor do they know that a healthy body is one which does not get sick often, is (generally) within a normal weight range, and maintains stable moods.

Kids are often prone to ADD or ADHD these days and for many, it can be triggered by too much sugar and too many chemicals added to these foods.

This photo was taken in Australia at a hospital that was raising money for cancer. They are doing this by selling junk foods which are, of course, linked to disease.

What is most concerning these days is that through the media, pharmaceutical drugs are also being advertised incessantly, and our children are being exposed to these ads as much as we are.

Then, without the correct guidance from parents, they are more likely to grow up and take a pill for every ill, instead of understanding how to achieve holistic health.

They will be more likely to grow up giving the responsibility for their own health to others —  namely doctors and drug companies — who do not treat people in a way that decreases the need for their services.

Vegetarian Muscles debunks the myth that vegetarians are weak and also gives children great reasons to be vegetarian, including environmental and health reasons

We must ask ourselves, do we really want our kids to end up on medication from a young age, which will generally mean they are on them for life? Do we really want our kids to suffer from diabetes or depression and other generally food related illnesses because we didn’t instill these good messages when they were young?

Sure, it must be said that it’s also the parents’ responsibility to keep their children healthy, and they indeed need education too, but we also need to focus on our children and encourage them to develop a broader understanding about health and good living.

There is a multibillion dollar global industry that simply does not want this to happen. If we collectively stop buying their unhealthy foods and products, these companies will collapse (hence the extreme and incessant advertisements we see everywhere). But they won’t go down without a fight.

So what can we do about this? Well, we can start by educating ourselves and our children. I’m very pleased to tell you about a wonderful children’s book author from Australia, Stephanie Messenger, who is on a mission to get our children healthier and also to help the parents and adults who read these books to think much more deeply about how to create health naturally.

Educates both child and parent about measles, the risks of vaccinations, how they often spread the disease, and how to treat if measles is caught. A powerful book that will allow your child to have a better understanding of how diseases are contracted and how junk foods and a lack of sun, exercise, and clean water will cause the disease to be much worse. Click the cover to read a review by an immunologist.

Stephanie has written a series of glossy bright and beautiful books on all sorts of different health and well-being topics that children and adults will enjoy reading together.

I asked her why she wrote this series:

I wrote the books because it is important to break the cycle of ignorance and fear around health and childhood disease, so educating children about natural health is important.

This book exposes children to the idea that they create most of their ill health by the choices they make. It encourages them to listen to the messages their bodies give them. Sarah visits a naturopath with her mother to get advice on staying well according to nature’s laws.

Sarah visiting her Naturopath

My almost 4 year old absolutely loves reading these books with me. I have even heard her talking to her friends about some of the messages in the books! When I say to her, “Lets eat this because it’s good for us,” she understands and actually eats the fruit/veggie I put in front of her. When you tell children they can become ill if they don’t eat the right things, they tend to take it on board. I mean, what kid wants to be sick?

You can also listen to a fascinating interview by the UK’s radio host Richie Allen with Stephanie about what happened to her son Jason.

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

Avatar

CE Staff Writer 4 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The PGA Tour has announced that it will stop testing players every week, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

  • Reflect On:

    Are PCR tests appropriate to identify infectious people? Should people who are healthy and not sick be tested at all, anywhere?

Before you begin...

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

The picture you see above is of John Rahm, a professional golfer on the PGA tour being carted off the golf course after tournament officials told him he had COVID. He was healthy and had no symptoms, yet was forced to withdraw from the tournament. He was told in front of the camera’s, and a big scene was made out of the event. You would think something like that, especially when you are a big time sports figure, would be done behind closed doors with some privacy.

Earlier on in June a spokesperson for the PGA Tour said that more than 50 percent of players on the PGA tour have been vaccinated. Although it seems that the majority of players on the tour will be fully vaccinated judging by this statement, it does leave a fairly large minority who won’t be, and that’s something we’re seeing across the globe as COVID vaccine hesitancy remains high for multiple reasons.

We are pleased to announce, after consultation with PGA Tour medical advisors, that due to the high rate of vaccination among all constituents on the PGA Tour, as well as other positively trending factors across the country, testing for COVID-19 will no longer be required as a condition of competition beginning with the 3M Open. – PGA tour Senior VP Tyler Dennis

The tour recently announced that the testing of players every week will stop starting in July for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This was an unexpected announcement given the fact that, at least it seems in some countries, vaccinated individuals will enjoy previous rights and freedoms that everyone did before the pandemic. Travelling without need to quarantine and possibly in the future not having to be tested could be a few of those privileges. Others may include attending concerts, sporting events, or perhaps even keeping their job depending on whether or not their employer deems it to be mandatory, if that’s even legally possible. We will see what happens.

Luckily for professional golfers, regardless of their vaccination status they won’t have to worry about testing positive for COVID, especially if they’re not sick. This is the appropriate move by the PGA tour, who is represented by their players and it’s a move that the players themselves may have had a say in. It’s important because PCR tests are not designed nor are they appropriate for identifying infectious people. A number of scientists have been emphasizing this since the beginning of the pandemic. More recently, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of infection explain why more than half of al “positive” PCR tests are likely to have been people who are not infectious, otherwise known as “false positives.”

This is why the Swedish Public Health agency has a notice on their website explaining how and why polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are not useful for determining if someone is infected with COVID or if someone can transmit it to others, and it’s better to use someone who is actually showing symptoms as a judgement call of whether or not they could be infected or free from infection.

PCR tests using a high cycle threshold are extremely sensitive. An article published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that among positive PCR samples with a cycle count over 35, only 3 percent of the samples showed viral replication. This can be interpreted as, if someone tests positive via PCR when a Ct of 35 or higher is used, the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97 percent. This begs the question, why has Manitoba, Canada, for example, using cycle thresholds of up to 45 to identify “positive” people?

When it comes to golf, the fact that spread occurring in an outdoor setting is highly unlikely could have been a factor, but it’s also important to mention that asymptomatic spread within one’s own household is also considerably rare. It really makes you wonder what’s going on here, doesn’t it?
