September 1 2020 Monthly Message

Did God use Facebook to send a message - or - was it just a coincidence?

Milwaukee WI.  (26th and National Ave) Living across from Walgreens on a street frequented by homeless people, Paul was reading his Facebook messages and talking to a friend in the evening of July 19, 2020, when he looked out his window and noticed a homeless person sitting on his front porch. He thought that the man looked like he might be hungry so he made a sandwich for him and brought it to him. The homeless man thanked him when he handed him the sandwich. When Paul returned to his living room, his laptop computer had on it the following message.

"Remember whenever you're in a position to help someone, be glad and always do it because that's God answering someone else's prayers through you."   

 Note that the message was not on his computer when he went outside and gave the homeless person the sandwich. What appeared on his computer screen is as shown in this photo. Later that day, when Paul told me what happened, I asked him to save the message and I took the photo above two days later on 7/21 directly from his computer. I am not sure what the bright light at the top of the photo is but it could have been the flash on my camera.

    The message speaks for itself and paraphrases what Jesus told his disciples more than 2000 years ago when he stated: "whatever you do unto the least of mine, you do unto me."  He also told his followers: "love one another as I have loved you."

Dr Ron Peters MD comments on the latest issue of the journal article on remedies for Covid-19

Conrad, I like your article.  It is highly informative and reassuring to patients to help them strengthen your immune system and general defense against the disease.

I believe the virus is produced in a lab by the Dark State in order to “thin the population.”  But it was too weak and ended up being highly transmissible but asymptomatic in 84% of infected patients.

The immune system is the key feature, as you say.  People need to be empowered to strengthen their immune defenses, which begins with stop the fear and worry which are immunosuppressive.  Then follow your guidelines to bolster immunity.

The corporate media is fanning the fires of fear with non-stop fearsome articles and data.  It is similar to psychological warfare.

I have a question. How did you arrive at these percentages for this quote?

“Of the more than 110,000 deaths in the United States blamed on the coronavirus as of June 10th, immune suppressive drugs may be a contributing factor for 25 to 50% of these virus related deaths.”

The following article summarizes the work of Dr Browenstein who has treated 85 Covid patients with no progression, hospitalizations, or death.

He recommends nebulizing hydrogen peroxide 3% which I have also been recommending to patients with cough and upper airway symptoms.

Good job.  Thank you for the article.

Ronald Peters, MD

Vol 18 N0 2 - The latest issue of the Keep Hope Alive Journal

Conrad LeBeau
The March report on the Corona virus Vol18 N1has been revised three times since then. The first quarterly report on the Coronavirus of Keep Hope Alive was published March 25th. The 2nd revision and printing was April 15th and the third revison and printing was June 10 2020 distributed by The latest issue of our keep hope alive journal (Volume 18 No 2) contains updated revisions since 3 weeks ago. You could say the newsletter now in the printers is the 4th revision.

These rapid fire revisons reflects just how fast new information in flowing in response to the worldwide pandemic. The final touches and changes were made two days ago on June 29th. Here is a brief summary of leading articles and subtitles, new information and changes from our last newsletter of March 25th.

1. Coronavirus fatalities (estimated up to 60,000) in the elderly are linked to the use of immuno-suppressive drugs given to patients with Covid-19.

2. Seventeen Immune -suppressive drugs are named that are widely advertised on Television not to be used if you have an infection. (There is no mention of Covid-19 in the Ads. Why not?)

3. Why the silence from the FDA and Anthony Fauci on the use of these drugs?

4. N-95 Mask Hypoxic hazards - linked to strokes and heart attacks. A local priest faints wearing the N-95 mask while giving an eulogy. N-95 masks are the hardest to breathe through and reduce oxygen intake into the lungs while causing the wearer to inhale carbon dioxide that they just exhaled.

5. Lifestyle, Diet and Other Factors that impact recovery

6. Immune Responses to produce antibodies require a fever

7. lists 38 products with Hydrogen Peroxide for disinfecting Covid-19 on surfaces

8. How to use Hydrogen Peroxide (foot absorpion method and the oral use method ) for internal cleansing of the Covid-19 virus.

9. Oral Hydrogen Peroxide for Self-Immunization- a Vaccine Alternative

10. lists 3 products with Thymol for disinfecting surfaces contaminated with Covid-19. Thymol is also an active dis-infectant ingredient in Listerine.

11. Thyme (This spice and herb is a potent natural source of Thymol). Available OTC are these herbal remedies for bronchial and lung infections 1. Bronchial Clear and 2. Olbas Cough Syrup. The natural thymol in both these products should work as well inside the body as the EPA thymol products work externally for safely killing the Covid-19 virus.

12. Quinine found in Cinchona bark is an anti-inflammatory

13.Case Report - Treating Pneumonia with Glutathione credited with rapid recovery

14. Test Protocol for Covid-19 (covers a range of treatment options)

15. Foods to eat to speed recovery from Covid-19 and foods to avoid.

16. Messages from the Virgin Mary at Medjugorje- 1981 to 2021

17. G4 and G5- Protect yourself the dangers of Laptop Computers, Routers, and Smart Phones.

May 15 2020 - Emphysema, chest colds - results of experiences using hydrogen peroxide absorbed through the feet.

Will this also work on Covid-19?

Hello everyone.
I have used hydrogen peroxide occasionally since 1989 in different ways. They are 1 Oral - low dose - diluted with plenty of water. 2. Skin absorption in bath water and 3. absorption through the bottom of your feet and 4. by adding some to a humidifier. Around 1990, I recall 3 people with Emphysema telling me at the time that they applied a hydrogen peroxide gel to their feet each day and it healed their Emphysema.

Recently, I had a chronic low level sinus and lung infection that has lasted for over 6 months that I blame on my addiction to ice cream. I decided to apply regular 3% H2O2 solution to a large wash cloth and stand on it with my bare feet for 5 minutes. Specifically, I used a 10 or 12 inch square piece of aluminum foil and set it on the floor (a cookie sheet would also work). I then take a large wash cloth - about 10 inches square and rise it out with warm tap water. I place the warm wet cloth on top of the metal foil or pan and pour about 1/4 cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide over the wash cloth. Then, I either sit on a chair and place both my bare feet on the wash cloth or I stand it. I look at my watch and wait 5 minutes. When done, I lift my feet away and let them air dry.

The result is that the hydrogen peroxide that is absorbed through my feet travels up to my lungs and throughout my body. It breaks up the mucus in the lungs and it is easily spit out. The benefits last for 12 to 24 hours or more. I believe this method is not only safe but reduces the need to use the H2O2 in a nebulizer or even taking it orally.

My breathing improves very quickly. Chest tightness goes away and I am able to take deep breaths without straining. I think this method of using hydrogen peroxide topically by absorption through the bottom of the feet would benefit anyone with pneumonia, Covid 19, chest colds, TB, sinus infections, and COPD. I would like to hear what others think after trying this simple method. I find normal breathing and clear lungs after treatment once a day for 5 days. Disclaimer Note- I am not a doctor, but I would like to hear from others who tries this method of absorbing H2O2. Send your comments to Thanks.

May 5, 2020 Covid-19 Origin - Two Theories

Conrad LeBeau
            Today is Cinco de Mayo or the 5th of May when Mexican and Latino folks celebrate the Mexican army's military victory against the French in the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862. Today's battle is different. It is against an invisible enemy, a virus that has somehow managed to circle the globe and infect people in 184 countries in a span of about 3 months. The lightning speed of the pandemic has advanced on mankind like a bat out of hell.
            Two theories now emerge as to the origin of this Covid-19 virus. One is that it was derived from nature in marketplaces in Wuhan, China, where under unsanitary conditions, birds and wild animals inter-react with each other and with people.  The other theory is that (read more here)

Two local reports on the use of Grapefruit seeds that are credited with helping speed recovery from the seasonal flu

C LeBeau
            West Allis, WI.  In February, 2020, a neighbor stopped by. I could tell something was wrong, He told me he had a cold sweat and that he had been vomiting for the past 2 days. I offered to take him to a local hospital. He declined my offer. I told him he might have the flu. He then said: “you know I am an atheist and don’t believe in God.” Then, he said he was afraid of dying and asked me to pray for him……
            A short time later, I told him of a friend who had recovered from the flu about 5 years ago by eating one or two raw grapefruit seeds. He said he had heard of a product made from grapefruit seed extract that had antibiotic and antiviral properties. At the time, he did not have this product but he did have fresh grapefruit. He cut one grapefruit in half and removed a seed. He proceeded to chew the seed and then swallowed it with water. He said within a short amount of time, he fully recovered.
            I shared this story with my neighbor and asked him if he wanted try the grapefruit seed extract as I had an old bottle of the extract I had obtained about 10 years ago and it was still dated for use. He agreed to try it. I opened one capsule and added it to 4 ounces of water. He drank it and waited. About 30 minutes went by and he said he was holding it down. I then offered to give him a fresh grapefruit seed from one I had in the kitchen and he agreed to try it.
            Since my neighbor had no teeth to chew the seed, he swallowed the seed whole with water.  I wasn’t sure what a whole seed would do – it might not break down in his stomach. However, an hour went and the vomiting stopped. The cold sweats began to diminish. With his symptoms going away, he went home. Amazingly, the next day he felt good enough to go to work. A week has passed since these events and none of his symptoms have returned.
            Skeptics may say this was all a coincidence yet God did answer his prayers. The public and government health officials should keep an open mind to the value of natural remedies derived from herbs and medicinal foods like garlic and grapefruit seeds. In the worldwide health crisis now unfolding with the corona-virus, government officials can ill afford to tell the public to wait a year of two for a vaccine to be ready while millions of people might die from this pandemic. 

Editor's Note: The use of grapefrujti seeds or extract for treating seasonal and intestinal flu's and other infections is discussed in my home remedies handbook along with 12 other traditional and herbal remedies for infection defense.

Feb 1 2010 update

Where do the 2020 Presidential candidates stand on GMO's?

An article published by the Organic Consumers Assn answers the question about which candidates are accepting money from Big Agriculture, Monsanto and Dow Chemical and who has refused these donations of bribery and has placed the publics interest above their personal political ambitions. Not surprisingly, there are sell out politicians in both political parties. Here is an excerpt from their latest findings:


Truth Be Told Want to know where all the 2020 presidential candidates stand on GMOs? You’re in luck.

We investigated the candidates’ positions based on who’s funding their campaigns, how they voted as elected officials and what they’ve said in their platforms and public statements. And we're ready to share.

Using data compiled by and we dug up the dirt on who’s taken campaign contributions from the biggest companies in the food system, including the four multinational corporations, Bayer-Monsanto, Syngenta, BASF, and DowDuPont (now Corteva).

Of course we know where several of the candidates stand on GMOs because they were in the House or Senate in 2016. That was the year Congress ended our fight for GMO labels on genetically engineered foods by passing a federal bill that took away states’ rights to label GMOs and instituted a federal “bioengineered disclosure” standard that has yet to result in any GMOs being labeled.

Truth be told, only Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) came out “GMO-Free” based on our research.

About half of all American adults have one or more preventable, chronic, diet-related diseases. Whether it’s factory-farm foods from animals raised on GMO feed, or sugary foods and drinks made with GMO sweeteners or foods fried in GMO fats, nearly all the foods making Americans fat and sick contain genetically engineered ingredients. This is how genetic engineers are “feeding the world,” as they like to say.

But what the genetic engineering industry is really interested in is how many billions of dollars they can make selling pesticides.

Fact: Genetic engineering has been used almost exclusively as a means to sell pesticides, especially the carcinogenic glyphosate-based Roundup herbicide that Monsanto created its genetically engineered crops to withstand. Today, 99 percent of GMOs grown around the world are engineered to withstand massive applications of glyphosate, an herbicide classified as “probably carcinogenic to humans” the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer. 

There’s no reason our food should be produced from crops that are genetically engineered to be soaked in carcinogens.

More than 14,000 certified organic farms and 3,900 producers finishing grassfed cattle in the U.S. today are proving that another food system is possible.

And they’re doing it with virtually no federal assistance compared with the massive subsidies lavished on the producers of GMO crops and factory farm animal products.

Through a Green New Deal, we could turn this situation around by supporting family farmers; by investing in regenerative organic farming and land use practices that sequester carbon; and by building a food system that ensures universal access to healthy food.

We’ve investigated each of the 2020 Presidential candidates to learn where they stand on GMOs by looking into who is funding their campaigns, what their records are as elected officials and what the candidates have said in their platforms and public statements.

We know where several of the Presidential candidates stand on GMOs because they were in the House or Senate in 2016. That was the year Congress removed labels from genetically engineered foods by passing a federal bill that took away states’ rights to label GMOs and instituted a federal “bioengineered disclosure” standard that has yet to result in any GMOs being labeled.

We’ve combed through data compiled by and to find out who’s taken campaign contributions from the biggest companies in the food system, including the four multinational corporations, Bayer-Monsanto, Syngenta, BASF, and DowDuPont (now Corteva). These four companies control 75 percent of GMO plant breeding research, 60 percent of the commercial GMO seed market and 76 percent of pesticide sales globally. 

Here’s what we know about where each of the presidential candidates stand on GMOs. We’ve listed every candidate currently in the race, beginning with the incumbent and his Republic challengers, followed by the Democratic hopefuls, in alphabetical order.

Our exhaustive research wasn’t able to uncover everything we’d like to know about every candidate. To learn how you can help get every presidential candidate on record, join Citizens Regeneration Lobby.

Donald Trump took $1 million from DowDuPont, then reversed Obama’s plan to ban chlorpyrifos, a pesticide linked to neurodevelopmental problemsreduced birth sizes and weightslower I.Q.sattention deficit and autism

As President, Trump also issued an executive order to exempt GMOs from federal regulations. GMOs aren’t safety tested, labeled or monitored for impacts on human health or the environment. But GMOs are currently regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service as potential plant pests when they are herbicide-tolerant crops, by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency when they are crops or organisms that produce pesticides and by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration as “new animal drugs” when they are genetically engineered animals.

It’s not much, but these regulations have done two important things: 1) alerted the public to the existence of new GMOs; and 2) provided an opportunity for public comment before new GMOs enter our food system. Trump’s executive order threatens to wipe away our right to know if GMOs even exist! If that were to happen, companies like Monsanto could create new GMOs and release them into the environment and our food system without notifying anyone. The consequences could be disastrous and irreversible and it would be even more difficult than it is now to figure out what impact GMOs are having on our health.

Joe Walsh, when he was a Congressman, counted among his top contributors McDonald’s, a company with a huge carbon footprint (29 percent from factory farmed beef) that makes its money from child obesity and animal cruelty

Bill Weld, former Governor of Massachusetts, between 2007 – 2011 worked as a registered lobbyist for international law firm McDermott, Will & Emery. He’s listed on reports for defense contractor Raytheon, CNX Gas Corporation, Sony Electronics and shoemaker New Balance. Weld is currently a member of lobbying firm ML Strategies. Weld is a corporate lobbyist, but there is no evidence that he has worked for Big Ag. 

Michael Bennet, as a Senator, has taken money from the political action committees of BASF, Bayer, DowDuPont, Syngenta and CropLife (the GMO/pesticide companies’ trade association). His voting record reflects these campaign contributions. He voted for the 2016 Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law, which took away states’ rights to label GMOs but has yet to result in any federally required labels on genetically engineered food.

Joe Biden’s presidential campaign has taken campaign contributions from Erik Fyrwald, CEO of Syngenta, a Chinese-owned manufacturer of neonicotinoid pesticides blamed for the insect apocalypse hitting bees, butterflies and other pollinators. While in Congress, Biden never had the opportunity to vote on GMOs, but he made his views clear by refusing to cosponsor any of bills introduced by colleague Dennis Kucinich that would have required safety testing, labeling and contamination prevention for GMOs.

Mike Bloomberg, a billionaire businessman, has not made his views on genetic engineering known. In 2011, while he was Mayor of New York City, his Department of Health’s report on city pesticide use revealed that Monsanto’s glyphosate-based Roundup weed-killer was the city’s most heavily used liquid herbicide, but Bloomberg made no effort to reduce its use. [New York City is currently considering a bill that would make all of its parks pesticide-free.] That said, Bloomberg is a well-known anti-obesity crusader who has taken on the soda industry. Nearly all sodas are made with high-fructose corn syrup made from GMO corn, though his campaigns have never mentioned this. 

Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign has taken campaign contributions from James Travis, Senior Director of International Government Affairs at Bayer, the company fighting thousands of cancer victims who claim Monsanto (now Bayer)’s Roundup weedkiller gave them non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

John Delaney, as a Congressman, voted for the 2016 Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law, which took away states’ rights to label GMOs but has yet to result in any labels on genetically engineered food.

Tulsi Gabbard, a Congresswoman from Hawaii where GMOs and related pesticides are field tested with disastrous consequences, has always been very vocal in her calls for common sense regulations of this industry, including labels on genetically engineered food.

Amy Klobuchar, as a Senator, has taken money from the political action committees of BASF, Bayer, DowDuPont, Monsanto, Syngenta and CropLife (the GMO/pesticide companies’ trade association). Her voting record reflects these campaign contributions. She voted for the 2016 Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law, which took away states’ rights to label GMOs but has yet to result in any federally required labels on genetically engineered food.

Deval Patrick has not made his views on genetic engineering known. He is a former governor of Massachusetts and a current executive at the investment firm Bain Capital. In his early career, he was a lawyer for the NAACP, but was later recruited to serve as general counsel for Texaco, a corporation he was monitoring for racial discrimination. He has also been corporate counsel to Coca-Cola, a company that has lobbied government regulators to shift the blame for obesity away from its GMO high-fructose-corn-syrup-sweetened beverages.

Bernie Sanders, a Senator from Vermont, the first state to require labels on genetically engineered food, has been one of Congress’s top advocates for GMO labels, forcing a floor vote on states’ rights to label GMOs in 2013, and fighting until the very end to prevent passage of the 2016 Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law, which took away states’ rights to label GMOs but has yet to result in any federally required labels on genetically engineered food.

Tom Steyer, a billionaire businessman, has not made his views on genetic engineering known. In 2018, his tweet celebrating the first Roundup-exposed cancer victim’s win against Bayer/Monsanto, was met with jeers raising the fact that his hedge fund Farallon Capital Management had $776 million invested in Monsanto.

Elizabeth Warren, as a Senator, has flip-flopped on GMO labeling. She voted against the 2013 Sanders amendment for states’ rights to label GMOs. She then supported a Food and Drug Administration guidance on voluntary GMO labels.  Finally, she voted against the 2016 Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law, which took away states’ rights to label GMOs but has yet to result in any federally required labels on genetically engineered food.

Andrew Yang, an attorney and entrepreneur, has not made his views on genetic engineering known.

Support Freedom of Choice in Medicine

Stop Wisconsin bills S492! and A546!

Note - the is promoting this bill. They wrote earlier today "We Need You at the Wisconsin Capitol for the Senate Hearing Jan. 23, on S492/A546" Sorry, but this is not a safe harbor bill as it is being promoted. It is more like the iceberg that sank the Titanic. Read the bill here

NO - STOP THIS BILL! This bill S492 or A546 is very bad and has too many restrictions. A bill with similar language and endless restrictions has been in effect in Colorado since 2013 and has been used to drive hundreds of alternative health care professionals out of business. Unless language is added that gives Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) professionals the right to advise their clients on the use of natural remedies for the prevention of disease, the only thing this bill will do is create a regulated monopoly for the big drug companies to market their patented drugs and eliminate all low-cost competition from food-based, herbal and holistic remedies.

No bill would be preferred to this regulatory mess. The bill is deceptive and creates without justification an expensive regulatory nightmare costing each CAM practitioner tens of thousands of dollars without providing any benefit to either the consumer or the CAM practitioner. The only beneficiaries are to line the pockets of the biggest drug compnaies with more profits, drive more consumers into bankruptcy, and continue to leave overpriced patented drugs as the only legal choices available. Also, this bill does nothing to protect the rights of licensed medical doctors who want to add and use integrative and CAM remedies in their existing medical practices. S492 and A546 as writen violates the Ninth Amendment** rights of all Americans to Freedom of Choice in Medicine.

A new bill needs to be written by CAM professionals and integrative doctors to protect Freedom of choice in medicine and define exactly what parameters of CAM* service a holistic professional may provide to their clients. The present bill has a long list of things you cannot do and none protecting the consumer rights to CAM and/or to protect the rights of complementary and integrative health care professionals to offer services that promote health, well being and help to prevent disease. The present bill will prohibit complementary and alternative medicine from being practiced in Wisconsin and needs to be voted down. Click here to email your personal legislators to oppose S492 and A546. 

*CAM is complementary and Alternative Medicine

**The 9th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states:

"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

Jan 11 - War with Iran? Why?

An Opinion article from Senator Bernie Sanders

In January of 1991, one of the first votes I cast in Congress was against the war in Iraq. I remember it well. Almost all Republicans supported the war effort, as did a number of Democrats. I didn’t, and I walked off the floor thinking “well, I’ll probably be a one-term congressman now.”

But I will repeat something today that I said back then, because I think it is still applicable:

And that is that the challenge of our time is not simply to begin a war that will result in the deaths of many people — young Americans and innocent families overseas — but the real challenge of our time is to see how we can use our power in a different way to stop aggression and keep our people safe. Because if we are not successful right now, then I think all this world has to look forward to in the future for our children is war, and more war, and more war... as if we haven’t had enough war already.

A decade after that first war in Iraq, I voted against yet another war in the same country. That was the right vote. And it is almost beyond impossible to imagine that after nearly 17 years of that war in Iraq — a war that upended the regional order of the Middle East and resulted in untold loss of life — that this administration is putting us on such a dangerous path toward more war.

This time with Iran.

Apparently for some, decades of constant war is not enough. Let us not forget that when Trump took office, we had a nuclear agreement with Iran, negotiated by the Obama administration along with our closest allies. Countries from all over the world came together to negotiate that agreement, which put a lid on Iran’s nuclear program.

The wise course would have been to stick with that nuclear agreement, enforce its provisions, and use that diplomatic channel with Iran to address our other concerns with Iran, including their support of terrorism.

Unfortunately, Trump followed his reckless instincts and listened to right-wing extremists, some of whom were exactly the same people that got us into the war in Iraq in the first place.

Now, as you all know, last week President Trump ordered the assassination of a top Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani in Iraq, along with the leader of an Iraqi militia. Trump justified the assassination of Soleimani by claiming that it was necessary to prevent 'imminent' attacks on U.S. forces, but his administration has offered no evidence to back that claim up, even in a classified setting.

Then he claimed that there were plans to attack U.S. embassies, again offering no evidence. And now, unbelievably, we find out that Trump himself told people he was under pressure to deal with Soleimani from GOP senators he views as important supporters in his coming impeachment trial in the Senate.

Once again, we see Trump making enormously consequential national security decisions for selfish reasons and without regard for the Constitution. As a United States senator, I will do everything I can to rein in this reckless president and prevent a war with Iran.

As president, I will offer a different vision for how we exercise American power: one that is not demonstrated by our ability to blow things up, but by our ability to bring countries together and forge international consensus around shared challenges.

A test of a great nation is not how many wars we can fight or how many governments we can overthrow, but how we can use our strength to resolve international conflicts in a peaceful way. I cannot do it alone. But maybe, just maybe, instead of spending $1.8 trillion a year globally on weapons of destruction, we can lead the world to address the issues that affect us all, like the existential threat of climate change.

So our job is to offer a different vision — a vision that one day human beings on this planet will live in a world where international conflicts are resolved peacefully, not by mass murder.

Thank you for your continued support of that vision.

The latest printed quarterly issue of our Keep Hope Alive journal is in the mail and should arrive either tomorrow or in a few days. The lead story is :

Roundup News - Week Killers in your bread and pasta.

The newsletter discusses a new shocking discovery - that Monsanto's Roundup weed killer (glyphosate) is a herbicide that not only is used to kill weeds in GMO corn and GMO soybean fields but is also used at harvest time as a drying agent (desiccant) by spraying it on more than a dozen crops just before harvest. This results in a wide assortment of grains from wheat to corn and soybeans being contaminated with the weed killer and then the contaminated seeds are sent to market for public consumption.

Responsible farmers harvest their seeds and send them to drying centers where hot air is used to remove the moisture. The problem is that while many farmers do not use Monsanto's weed killers to dry their crops, many do, and the end products are all mixed together and sent to market. The Dept of Agriculture and the EPA have both failed to protect the public from unknowingly consuming the toxic chemical - glyphosate.

While there is plenty of research that supports expert opinion that Monsanto's glyphosate causes non-Hodgkin lymphoma, other research has found this weed killer is responsible for many other types of cancer as well. In addition, this latest newsletter also reports on a lab study in rats that glyphosate damages the liver and causes fatty liver disease.

Also equally shocking is a report that Trump's EPA has filed a friend of the court brief claiming that Roundup is safe and asking the court to throw out a jury awarded $25 million dollar award to Edwin Hardeman against Monsanto. Apparently the President has forgotten his 2016 pledge to drain the swamp.

Another study covered was published in 2014 from the Indian Journal of Cancer that found that aged garlic both increases cd4/cd8 ratios and natural killer cells in mice with implanted cancer. Other articles are on C - Reactive Protein; two Centurions who used psyllium husk powder all their life and lived to a ripe old age of 102 and 104 respectively. a case report for Europe on the two month use of Kyolic Aged Garlic extract on the cd4/cd8 ratio and tryglyceride level of a 25 yr HIV patient; also a report on the declining cd4/cd8 ratio in people (who do not have HIV) as they age and how it affects their life span.
