42. Then here’s what I want to say about neonicotinoids:
43. These are mainly used as seed dressings and for foliar and soil treatment, where they correspond to a group of highly effective insecticides, which all correspond to synthetically produced toxic substances and are fatal to all living beings depending on the amount, including humans.

44. The best known three neonicotinoids are called clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam.

Controversial insecticides shown to threaten survival of wild birds

New research at the University of Saskatchewan (USask) shows how the world’s most widely used insecticides could be partly responsible for a dramatic decline in songbird populations.

A study published in the journal Science on Sept. 13 is the first experiment to track the effects of a neonicotinoid pesticide on birds in the wild.

The study found that white-crowned sparrows who consumed small doses of an insecticide called imidacloprid suffered weight loss and delays to their migration—effects that could severely harm the birds’ chances of surviving and reproducing.

“We saw these effects using doses well within the range of what a bird could realistically consume in the wild—equivalent to eating just a few treated seeds,” said Margaret Eng, a post-doctoral fellow in the USask Toxicology Centre and lead author on the study.

Although the toxic effects of neonicotinoids were once thought to affect only insects, most notably pollinators such as bees, there is growing evidence that birds are routinely exposed to the pesticides with significant negative consequences.

Our study shows that this is bigger than the bees—birds can also be harmed by modern neonicotinoid pesticides which should worry us all,” said Stutchbury.

You’ve Already Been Biochipped

August 18, 2019

I’ve just received my new card in the mail.  It must be better because they are telling me it’s better (even though it only does the exact same thing as my current card).  Back in the stone age, a few years ago, you actually had to swipe your debit or credit card though a little slot in order to use it.  Then they chipped almost all the cards, so now you have to stick it in a little pocket and wait an eternity for the transaction to process.  But no more!  Without me even asking for it, the company who owns Marshall’s / TJ Maxx, sent me a “contactless” card.  All you have to do is wave it like a magic wand, and you get a bill in the mail a few weeks later.  The weird thing is, I don’t want anything to do with wireless devices or radio waves near my body.  Another thing that struck me as odd:  My current card doesn’t expire for more than 2 years from now.  So I cut up the new card and they can track where my plastic garbage goes.  Maybe it will end up here.  Make no mistake.  We’ve already been biochipped, just on the outside.

Baby shark doo doo do do do do

August 6, 2019

A team of researchers, led by international conservation charity ZSL (Zoological Society of London), has discovered that sharks are much rarer in habitats nearer large human populations and fish markets. The team also found that the average body size of sharks and other marine predators fell dramatically in these areas, where sharks are caught and killed intensively for their meat and fins.

It can’t BEE worse for Bugs and Insects

July 2, 2019

For almost 30 years they passed as quirky eccentrics, diligently setting up their insect traps in the Rhine countryside to collect tens of millions of bugs and creepy crawlers.

Now the group of German entomology enthusiasts can boast a world-class scientific treasure: evidence of what is described as one of Earth’s worst extinction phases since the dinosaurs vanished.

Insects, which comprise two thirds of all terrestrial species, have been dying off at alarming rates, with disastrous impacts on food chains and habitats, researchers say.

“…the total biomass of flying insects here has plummeted by 76 percent.”

“We only became aware of the seriousness of this decline in 2011, and every year since then we have seen it get worse,” says Sorg, the man who sounded the alarm.

On one side of the road lies a protected nature reserve. On the other, a sugar beet field is being sprayed with pesticides by an agricultural machine.

“You see, protected reserves are not so protected,” says Sorg.

Across the border, Kroon says, “we must realise that here in western Europe our nature is getting smaller, the agriculture fields are very hostile to insects. There is no food, they get poisoned.

“And nature areas are also more and more isolated. Insects can’t move from one place to another, it’s too far away.”

They calculated that over 40 percent of insect species are threatened with extinction, and each year about one percent is added to the list.

This is equivalent, they noted, to “the most massive extinction episode” since the dinosaurs disappeared.

The main drivers appeared to be habitat loss and land conversion to intensive agriculture and urbanisation, followed by pollution, mainly from pesticides and fertilisers, invasive species and climate change.

“The conclusion is clear,” they wrote.

“Unless we change our ways of producing food, insects as a whole will go down the path of extinction in a few decades.”

A potential therapeutic strategy to treat viral infection and boost immunity against cancer is reported in the May 30 online issue of the journal Cell.  The work, conducted by scientists at Wake Forest School of Medicine, found that boosting the body’s production of type 1 interferon helped clear viral infection and increased immunity against cancer by identifying a sensor involved in suppressing interferon production in an animal model.

Interferons are a group of signaling proteins made and released by host cells in response to the presence of several viruses. In a typical scenario, a virus-infected cell will release interferons causing nearby cells to heighten their anti-viral defenses.

Interferons also help the immune system fight cancer and may slow the growth of cancer cells.

Question: Do you know if there is anything that we can do in our daily lives to prevent cancer?  This is the last I ask about this topic.  There are theories that say that it is possibly triggered by the environment, foods, habits. Thank you,

Answer: Various factors play a role in this: nourishment, constitution, heredity, environmental influences, radioactivity (like radon seeping up from the ground and flowing into houses), etc.

You can use gamma interferon, eat yogurt, vitamin C, nourishment additions (minerals etc.), move your body, refrain from smoking and drinking and using drugs, etc. etc.
However, there is no 100%-proof way of preventing cancer.

Nature declining at unprecedented rate

May 6, 2019

Wildlife and habitats are declining at an “unprecedented” rate worldwide which directly threatens human beings, a major new study has warned.

Up to a million species of plants and animals are at risk of extinction, a greater number than ever before in human history.

The three-year global assessment on the state of nature from the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) has involved more than 450 experts from 50 countries.

The biggest cause of wildlife losses is change to the way land or marine environments are used, followed by direct exploitation of animals and plants, climate change, pollution and invasive species.

Three-quarters of the world’s land has been “significantly altered” by human activity, with forests cut down and grassland ploughed up for crops or livestock and the spread of cities, industry and infrastructure such as roads.

Plastic pollution has increased 10-fold in the seas since 1980, harming turtles, seabirds and mammals, fertiliser run-off has caused “dead zones” in the oceans, land is becoming less productive, and the loss of pollinators puts crops at risk.

“This loss is a direct result of human activity and constitutes a direct threat to human well-being in all regions of the world.”

“…Earth’s atmosphere being unsuitable for human beings, and the fact that it contributes greatly to their rapid aging process. Furthermore, no mention is made about scientific discoveries which will, supposedly, lead to the imminent production of air that is more healthful and beneficial to the human body than before. This air will be a different yet more suitable composition and will be available for purchase both in bottles for personal consumption and as “little life extenders”. Currently the oxygen-nitrogen proportion of terrestrial air is not only unsuitable, but its oxygen content is much too low and it also contains a variety of dangerous gases inhaled by humans.”

Meier Corroboration #188- Infrasound

Low-intensity ultrasound can change decision-making process in the brain, research shows

New research in primates has shown for the first time that counterfactual thinking is causally related to a frontal part of the brain, called the anterior cingulate cortex. And scientists have proven that the process can be changed by targeting neurons (nerve cells) in this region using low-intensity ultrasound.

The study showed for the first time how low-intensity ultrasonic waves can be used to non-invasively, and with pinpoint accuracy, modulate normal brain functionaffecting counterfactual thinking and the ability to switch to better alternative.

If neurons in the anterior cingulate cortex are not working properly, then it would not be possible to switch to alternative options, even when these alternatives are the best available. Scientists believe that this is what happens in some psychiatric conditions where people are stuck in dysfunctional habits.

The research, conducted in macaques monkeys, follows previous work highlighting the safeness of the non-invasive ultrasound technique and its effect on the brain.

Extremely low-pitched sounds from electronic devices and other things as well as from nature, which cannot be perceived by the human ear – so-called infrasound – can cause strong vibrations, in the case of objects and with the human body and all its organs, such as, for instance, also in the eyes.
The consequences of that are hallucinations and panic attacks as well as depression, discord and negative moral states, because the thoughts and feelings as well as the consciousness succumb to confusion as a result of the vibrations.
In the said form, there is a connection among infra-sound, electromagnetism, and ghostly apparitions.
Infrasound and electromagnetism can trigger the internal attack-and-escape mechanism of the human being as well as panic attacks and hallucinations, and so forth, and it is especially the case if one is in a spooky or weird-looking place, in a depressed mood or in a mystical situation, and so forth.
That which is decisive in this regard is that the sense of the human beings is under great tension, whereby he perceives the environment and his situation, and so forth, as a threat.
In this state, then “ghostly apparitions” can be seen or strange, ghostly sounds can be heard, or unreal touches can be felt, and so forth.
Strong electromagnetic fields have effects on the human body and its organs, which therefore also includes the brain and consciousness as well as the thoughts, emotions and the psyche, which lead to hallucinations, whereby the human being sees, hears and feels things which are not real.
Electromagnetism and infrasound produce an effect on the human brain in such a way, that, for example, the feeling is created that someone strange is present – a ghost, and so forth, because he cannot be seen, or can be dimly seen as a result of the imagination.
Faces and figures can also be seen and sounds as well as unreal breathing, and so forth can be heard, or, in the same way, unreal touches can be felt.
Thereby the human being can become increasingly insecure and anxious, because the activity of fantasy and the imagination increases and everything is considered absolutely real, as for example in a similar manner to the way human beings appear who believe that they have been abducted and examined or impregnated by extraterrestrials and later have their foetuses stolen, which, in regard to pregnancy, naturally, only applies to women.
With all of these human beings, fantasy and the imagination – so to speak – go mad, whereby everything is of such a strong nature that the fantasy images and the imagination appear absolutely real – all caused by infrasound, or by strong electromagnetic fields.


Airborne plastic particles blanket remote mountains

April 16, 2019

A secluded mountain region thought to be free of plastic pollution is in fact blanketed by airborne microplastics on a scale comparable to a major city such as Paris, alarmed researchers reported Monday.

Over a five-month period in 2017-2018, an average of 365 tiny bits of plastic settled every day on each square metre of an uninhabited, high-altitude area in the Pyrenees straddling France and Spain, they reported in the journal Nature Geoscience.

“It is astounding and worrying that so many particles were found in the Pyrenees field site,” said lead author Steve Allen, a doctoral student at the University of Strathclyde in Scotland.

The study focused on microplastics mostly between 10 and 150 micrometres across, including fragments, fibres and sheet-like pieces of film.

By comparison, a human hair is, on average, about 70 micrometres in width.

“We would never have anticipated that this study would reveal such high levels of microplastic deposits,” added co-author Gael Le Roux, a researcher at EcoLab in Toulouse, in southwestern France.

Plastic litter has emerged in the last few years as a major environmental problem.

Up to 12 million tonnes of plastics are thought to enter the world’s oceans every year, and millions more clog inland waterways and landfills.
