Fecal bacteria found at UK branches of McDonald’s, KFC & Burger King

Experts from the program “Watchdog” tested ten samples at each of the chains for traces of “fecal coliform” that is found in human and animal feces and carry a number of diseases.

The coliforms were discovered in three samples of McDonald’s drinks, six from Burger King and in seven samples taken at KFC food outlets. Four of the samples collected from Burger King and five from KFC reportedly had “significant” levels of the bacteria.

The fast food chains were quick to respond to the findings.

“We are shocked and extremely disappointed by these results. We have strict procedures for the management and handling of ice, including daily and weekly inspections and cleaning of the ice machine and storage holds, as well as the routine testing of ice quality across our business,” a KFC spokesman said in response.

“Cleanliness and hygiene are a top priority for the Burger King brand. The strict procedures we have in place are designed to ensure all guests have a positive experience each time they visit our restaurants,” according to Burger King.

“We have robust procedures in place with regard to the production, storage, and handling of ice in our UK restaurants. Nothing is more important than the safety of our customers and people, and we will continue to review our procedures and training, working closely with our restaurant teams to ensure those procedures are adhered to at all times,” a McDonald’s spokesman told CNBC.

The Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA), a UK government body responsible for control of water standards, says coliform bacteria should not be present in any water used by people.

The findings are worrying, the experts say.

“You have to look at the people making the ice, handling the ice, which they then transfer into customers’ drinks. And then you also have to look at hygiene failure with potentially the machines themselves: are they being kept clean?” said Tony Lewis, head of policy and education at the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

Green tea nutrients found to successfully treat scars when used in a cream

Image: Green tea nutrients found to successfully treat scars when used in a cream

(Natural News)
It’s time to go green — and spread all that loving goodness on your skin. A new study conducted by the University of Manchester found that cream infused with green tea extract significantly reduced the appearance and thickness of newly formed scars. The topical agent, which contained the tea compound epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), was already shown to be effective for old, keloid scars. This new study suggests that a cream infused with EGCG can be used to treat recent injuries. These results, while still in their initial stages, could have profound implications with how medical treatment and management plans are designed.

Scars are formed when the skin is injured and there is an overproduction of collagen which forms scar tissues. As these tissues heal, they release histamin which causes the injured area to become red and itchy. Most everyone knows not to scratch the inflamed area, as further damage to the area can deepen the scar. However, researchers of this study indicated that EGCG disrupted the skin’s natural response, effectively soothing the area and making the scar appear less red and thick and making the area less itchy.

Green tea helps skin heal

This small study is just one of the numerous studies which prove the health benefits of green tea — especially its efficacy in skin cell rejuvenation. A 2003 study by the Medical College of Georgia found that polyphenols found in green tea eliminated free radicals in the body while safeguarding healthy cells. The most abundant polyphenol in green tea — the same EGCG mentioned earlier — was noted to reactivate dying cells. Dr. Stephen Hsu, the lead author of this study wrote that, “cells that migrate toward the surface of the skin normally live about 28 days, and by day 20, they basically sit on the upper layer of the skin getting ready to die. But EGCG reactivates them. I was so surprised.”

Dr. Hsu and his team also noted that EGCG somehow manipulated basic cell behavior, so that instead of cells dying normally, they reverted back to the dividing stage. Somehow — their team was unable to establish the exact mechanisms involved — EGCG reacted with cell DNA to make them produce more energy. The most obvious result of this interaction is an improved skin condition. This not only has aesthetic value, but practical purposes as well. Dr. Hsu reasoned that if skin healed faster, the injured area would be less at risk of getting infected.

“If skin cells surrounding wounds or infections don’t heal in time, fibroblasts in the connective tissue may rush in to fill the void and cause scar tissue formation,” Dr. Hsu said. “If we can spur the skin cells to differentiate and proliferate, we can potentially accelerate the wound-healing process and prevent scarring.”

Likewise, another study in 2013, published in the International Journal of Surgery concluded that green tea extract dramatically improved the healing process of surgical wounds in rats. Green tea extract was compared to other plant-based derivatives such as  grape seed, lemon, rosemary, and jojoba. While all of these extracts improved wound healing, green tea extract, with its high concentrations of EGCG, proved to be the most effective.

Green tea extract is not limited to severe skin lesions, however. The alternative treatment can be used to reduce the appearance of pimples, nodules, and cysts found in body. Dermatologists are now recommending EGCG-infused products to their patients to reduce the swelling and scarring of acne. Accordingly, these natural treatments are more easily accepted by the body, producing fewer side effects. For the best results, medical professionals recommend both ingesting the compound and topically applying a green tea-infused cream to the affected area.

Testimony of eyewitnesses found to be easily altered by peer pressure … conformity outweighs memory

Image: Testimony of eyewitnesses found to be easily altered by peer pressure … conformity outweighs memory

(Natural News)
Groundbreaking research by forensic psychologist Dara Mojtahedi has found that eyewitness recollection can be distorted easily by other people’s views, and he is calling on courts and police to keep this in mind when considering the testimony of witnesses.

In one study, he showed groups of volunteers, who would serve as “witnesses,” footage of a real-life violent incident. Afterward, some people were allowed to talk amongst themselves. He found that these people’s recollection of what happened in the video was easily distorted by those they conversed with, including eyewitnesses who the researcher enlisted to suggest that the wrong man was the instigator of the fight seen in the video. This influence led many of the “witnesses” to make inaccurate statements.

Mojtahedi has now taken the research one step further to explore what he calls “co-witness familiarity on statement similarity.” He placed 420 participants in groups that included people who were relatives or who had known one another for a period of three months or longer. These people viewed fight footage and then had a group conversation before providing private individual statements. He found that the post-event discussions had a significant impact on the degree of similarity between the individual statements when the co-witnesses had pre-established relationships.

This is particularly important to bear in mind when one considers the fact that 86 percent of eyewitnesses know one another, which means there is a shocking amount of potential for misleading statements – and these are the type of statements that could lead to wrongful convictions.

Mojtahedi attributes this to the fact that when people encounter information that comes from someone they don’t know, they don’t have any way of knowing if the person is more likely to be right about a situation than themselves. On the other hand, people are less likely to question the reliability or accuracy of people who they know and like.

He believes that lawyers, police officers and jurors alike should be making a bigger point of asking eyewitnesses if they witnessed the event in question in the company of strangers or friends and considering their statements accordingly. The Innocence Project reports that 71 percent of the 350 exonerations based on DNA that have taken place to date involved eyewitness misidentification.

Stress and other factors can also influence eyewitness reliability

Another factor that can significantly impact eyewitness reliability is stress, and violent crimes are often stressful to those who witness them. Studies have shown that people perform poorly on all types of cognitive tasks when they are stressed, including memory recall. The presence of weapons at a crime can also distract witnesses.

False memories easier to create than you might think

Researchers have even been able to create false memories in people’s minds, and many of them are convinced these memories are real. Criminal psychologist Julia Shaw says that implanting false memories into people’s minds is a lot easier than most people believe. She says that the same process in the brain that allows people to learn new tasks and solve problems can be manipulated to create false memories.

Shaw says that each time someone recounts a story, they make small changes to it, adding in new details they might have heard elsewhere or leaving out some other details, which eventually creates new accounts that could have very little connection to the reality of what transpired. In fact, Shaw sometimes hacks people’s memories with the aim of illustrating just how the process of interrogation can alter people’s memories.

It’s frightening to think of the ramifications of this type of manipulation. Not only can wrongful convictions devastate families and leave criminals free to offend again, but purposeful memory manipulation can help authorities find a believable reason to put those they disagree with or who speak out against them behind bars.

Haiti Official Who Exposed The Clinton Foundation Is Found Dead

[7/17/17  MAC SLAVO]  The mainstream media’s silence over Klaus Eberwein’s death is deafening. Eberwein was a former Haitian government official who was expected to expose the extent of Clinton Foundation corruption and malpractice next week. He has been found dead in Miami at the age of 50.

The circumstances surrounding Eberwein’s death are also nothing less than unpalatable. According to Miami-Dade’s medical examiner records supervisor, the official cause of death is “gunshot to the head.“ Eberwein’s death has been registered as “suicide” by the government. But not long before his death, he acknowledged that his life was in danger because he was outspoken on the criminal activities of the Clinton Foundation. 

Eberwein was a fierce critic of the Clinton Foundation’s activities in the Caribbean island, where he served as director general of the government’s economic development agency, Fonds d’assistance économique et social, for three years. “The Clinton Foundation, they are criminals, they are thieves, they are liars, they are a disgrace,” Eberwein said at a protest outside the Clinton Foundation headquarters in Manhattan last year. Eberwein was due to appear on Tuesday before the Haitian Senate Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission where he was widely expected to testify that the Clinton Foundation misappropriated Haiti earthquake donations from international donors. But this “suicide” gets even more disturbing…

Eberwein was only 50-years-old and reportedly told acquaintances he feared for his life because of his fierce criticism of the Clinton Foundation.  His close friends and business partners were taken aback by the idea he may have committed suicide. “It’s really shocking,” said friend Gilbert Bailly. “We grew up together; he was like family.”

During and after his government tenure, Eberwein faced allegations of fraud and corruption on how the agency he headed administered funds. Among the issues was FAES’ oversight of the shoddy construction of several schools built after Haiti’s devastating Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake.  But, according to Eberwein, it was the Clinton Foundation who was deeply in the wrong – and he intended to testify and prove it on Tuesday.

According to Eberwein, a paltry 0.6 percent of donations granted by international donors to the Clinton Foundation with the express purpose of directly assisting Haitians actually ended up in the hands of Haitian organizations. A further 9.6 percent ended up with the Haitian government. The remaining 89.8 percent – or $5.4 billion – was funneled to non-Haitian organizations. –WND

RELATED: Doctors HATE this…eliminate Heartburn pain with NO DRUGS

Eberwein was expected to testify against the Clinton Foundation in court and ends up committing suicide shortly before.  Where have we heard this before?  Untimely deaths seem to follow the Clinton’s around, and this one especially is probably something – considering since the mainstream media is silent about this death.

Strawberry nutrients found to prevent dementia and age-related cognitive decline

Image: Strawberry nutrients found to prevent dementia and age-related cognitive decline

(Natural News)
An animal study published online in the Journals of Gerontology Series A revealed that eating strawberries may well prevent memory decline and subsequent onset of Alzheimer’s disease. To carry out the study, a team of researchers from the Cellular Neurobiology Laboratory at the Salk Institute examined a strain of laboratory mice that were genetically modified to develop premature aging and Alzheimer’s disease. This strain was found to exhibit physical and cognitive decline in as early as 10 months, something that normal mice do not show.

The research team also assessed the effects of fisetin, a compound found in strawberries, on the cognitive status of the animal models. One group of three-month-old prematurely-aging mice were given daily fisetin doses with their food for seven months, while another group received the same food but without the compound. The animals models were then subjected to a variety of activity and memory tests. In addition, the experts studied the levels of specific proteins in the animals. These proteins were associated with inflammation, brain function, and stress response.

“At 10 months, the differences between these two groups were striking. Mice not treated with fisetin had difficulties with all the cognitive tests as well as elevated markers of stress and inflammation. Brain cells called astrocytes and microglia, which are normally anti-inflammatory, were now driving rampant inflammation. Mice treated with fisetin, on the other hand, were not noticeably different in behavior, cognitive ability or inflammatory markers at 10 months than a group of untreated 3-month-old mice with the same condition,”  lead researcher Dr. Pamela Maher told Sci-News.com.

“Mice are not people, of course. But there are enough similarities that we think fisetin warrants a closer look, not only for potentially treating sporadic AD but also for reducing some of the cognitive effects associated with aging, generally…Based on our ongoing work, we think fisetin might be helpful as a preventative for many age-associated neurodegenerative diseases, not just AD, and we’d like to encourage more rigorous study of it,” Dr. Maher added.

Previous studies confirm that strawberries are beneficial to brain health

The recent findings were reflective of previous research linking the strawberry compound to reduced odds of Alzheimer’s disease. A 2015 study carried out by researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies showed that fisetin was beneficial in maintaining the cognitive health of animals predisposed to AD. As part of the study, the research team pooled two groups of genetically predisposed mice and divided them into two groups. One group was given a fisetin-enriched diet, while the other served as the control group. (Related: Strawberry nutrient protects against Alzheimer’s, study finds.)

The experts found that the control group exhibited difficulties in basic memory function. In contrast, those who were given a fisetin-enriched diet performed just as well as mice that were otherwise not predisposed to the disease. The compound was also notably effective in warding off the disease, even if it would have been continuously progressing, a researcher said.

On the other hand, a 2012 study revealed that eating strawberries may help prevent memory decline in human subjects. To carry out the study, a team of researchers at the Harvard Medical School examined nearly 122,000 registered nurses aged 30 to 55 years. According to the researchers, the participants who ate two servings of strawberries per week were able to delay memory decline by more than two years, compared with those who did not eat the berries.

Health expert Dr. Holly Phillips said the flavonoids in strawberries greatly contributed to the fruit’s brain-boosting properties. The doctor noted that stress and inflammation are major risk factors for cognitive decline, and that flavonoids contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help counter these adverse effects.

Nearly all "warming" evidence found to be based on temperature "adjustments" rigged by people

Image: Nearly all “warming” evidence found to be based on temperature “adjustments” rigged by people

(Natural News)
Recently, a controversy over temperature adjustments has spiraled out of control — with proof of records being changed to support Obama’s climate policies and the global warming narrative.

A new research report — published June 27, 2017, by two scientists and a veteran statistician — found adjustments made to global surface temperature readings by scientists in recent years are totally inconsistent with published and credible temperature data.

“The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST [global average surface temperature] data sets are not a valid representation of reality,” the study authors explained. “In fact, the magnitude of their historical data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data.”

Despite the fact that these data sets show that the recent years have been the warmest ever, the results cannot be trusted, noted the authors of the study. The astonishing evidence they found may change the entire idea of global warming and how to address the threats posed by the climate change hoax.

Adjustments in favor of the global warming narrative

The aim of the peer-reviewed study was to validate the adjustments made to raw thermometer readings by NASA, NOAA (U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), and the U.K.’s Met Office. Climate researchers often apply adjustments to surface temperature thermometers to account for “biases” in the data, The Daily Caller explained.

Though the study didn’t question the changes to the data, they reported that nearly all the adjustments were in favor of the increasing global warming trend. In an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation, Meteorologist Joe D’Aleo — who co-authored the study with statistician James Wallace and Cato Institute climate scientist Craig Idso — explained that nearly all the warming they are now showing is found in the adjustments, adding that each data set pushed down the 1940s warming trend and pushed up the current warming.

“You would think that when you make adjustments you’d sometimes get warming and sometimes get cooling. That’s almost never happened,” said D’Aleo.

Furthermore, the team of researchers concluded that the measurements used to fortify the global warming narrative “nearly always exhibited a steeper warming linear trend over its entire history” by “systematically removing the previously existing cyclical temperature pattern.”

In 2009, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was given legal authority to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to tackle climate change issues. Based on these new findings, the study authors noted that the EPA’s authority to regulate greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide or CO2, based on the global warming trend is invalidated.

Sam Kazman, an attorney with the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), noted that this study is yet another important piece to add weight to the climate change debate, noting that this alone should give the EPA enough reason to reevaluate the endangerment finding.

Since the evidence used by the EPA to come to their conclusion and put a halt on CO2 emissions does not exist, D’Aleo and Wallace already filed a petition with EPA on behalf of their research group, the Concerned Household Electricity Consumers Council (CHECC).

“In sum, all three of the lines of evidence relied upon by EPA to attribute warming to human GHG emissions are invalid,” reads CHCC’s petition. “The Endangerment Finding itself is therefore invalid and should be reconsidered.”

During the Obama-era, we have repeatedly been told that rising CO2-emmisons are destroying the planet. Let’s hope President Donald Trump orders the EPA to reopen the endangerment finding to new scrutiny. Just as he ordered the EPA’s Administrator Scott Pruitt to review the Clean Power Plan. Though Pruitt said that he was spearheading a red team exercise to tackle climate science, he didn’t say a word whether or not he will reopen the case.

Chemicals Banned in Kids’ Toys Found in Mac and Cheese

Boxed macaroni and cheese is often a favorite food among youngsters, but a recent study suggests the packaged food contains dangerous, endocrine-disrupting chemicals that have been banned in toys: phthalates. [1]

Phthalates are a group of toxic additives in plastics. They’re used to make plastics soft and flexible, and are commonly found in artificial fragrances, inks, coatings, adhesives, and other consumer and industrial products, the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) explains.

These chemicals are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in equipment and materials for food handling, processing, and packaging. Because of this, phthalates often wind up in high-fat, highly-processed foods.

The Coalition for Safer Food Processing & Packaging – which includes the NRDC – recently sent a small sample of mac and cheese and other popular cheese-food items for laboratory testing, and received some unsettling results.

Phthalates were found in 10 varieties of macaroni and cheese, including 8 out of 9 Kraft products. [2]

It’s Time to Remove Phthalates from Food Products

The coalition believes the federal government should step in to regulate and ultimately ban phthalates, but since that is unlikely to happen anytime soon, the onus is on Kraft Heinz to remove phthalates from its food products.

Kraft not only has the largest market for powdered cheese in the industry, but the company has taken action in the past to remove unsafe ingredients from its products (largely due to increasing consumer pressure). For example, in 2016, the company quietly removed artificial dyes from its Mac & Cheese recipe and replaced them with paprika, annatto, and turmeric.

In total, the coalition tested 30 samples – 10 cheese powder, 5 sliced cheese, and 15 natural cheese samples – and 29 of them were found to contain phthalates. Some of the products tested were labeled organic. The highest levels of phthalates were found in the powdered macaroni and cheese samples.

Mike Belliveau, the executive director of the Environmental Health Strategy Center, said:

“The phthalates concentrations in powder from mac and cheese mixes were more than 4 times higher than in block cheese and other natural cheeses like shredded cheese, string cheese, and cottage cheese.” [3]

These chemicals are accidentally making their way into the food system, via processing and packaging. It’s not that Kraft workers are standing over giant vats of powdered cheese, dumping phthalates into them. The key to keeping dangerous substances out of the bellies of hungry kiddos is to ensure safer food processing and packaging methods are in place. [2]

The European Union (EU) has already taken the crucial step of banning phthalates in food contact materials.

Coalition member Peter Lehner said in a statement:

“Parents and their children should not have to wait longer to know that their food does not contain toxic chemicals. We are asking manufacturers to act now.”

No word from Kraft Heinz just yet.

Tom Neltner, the chemicals policy director for the Environmental Defense Fund, said:

“A chemical is not allowed in food unless there is a reasonable certainty it will cause no harm. We don’t think the FDA can say there is a reasonable certainty of no harm.” [3]

Phthalate Dangers

Once you consume phthalates, they can travel through your bloodstream to your organs. Prenatal phthalate exposure is especially concerning, since the chemicals can easily cross from the mother’s body into the placenta. Phthalates can also wind up in breast milk. [1]

Researchers have linked prenatal phthalate exposure to impaired neurological development in children, lower IQ, learning and memory impairment, and antisocial behavior. Boys that are exposed to phthalates in-utero run the risk of genital defects.

In 2008, Congress prohibited the use of DEHP, a chemical known to negatively affect the development of the testicles and the production of normal sperm in young animals, in toys and childcare products. It is considered a “gender-bending” chemical because it can cause males of all species to adopt more female traits.

In 2015, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) proposed a ban on several additional phthalates used in toys and other children’s products, but the proposal has yet to be finalized.

A report released in late 2015 showed that more than 81% of 164 dollar-store products tested contained concerning levels of at least 1 toxic chemical. Everything from toys to jewelry, to personal care products contained chemicals that were carcinogenic, or otherwise hazardous.

Intelligent mind-controlling squids found in Antarctica’s Lake Vostok revealed by Russian scientist




Home » Breaking News, Europe, Nature, Science » Intelligent mind-controlling squids found in Antarctica’s Lake Vostok revealed by Russian scientist













 







Russian scientists have made a new borehole into Lake Vostok, the prehistoric Antarctic water mass, which has been sealed for millions of years – three years after a previous mission was prematurely ended by an accident resulting in sample contamination.

He and his colleagues went missing for five days. Now a defecting Russian scientist had surfaced with a mind-bending account of what REALLY occurred when he and his colleagues went missing for five days in a mysterious lake 12,366 feet beneath the Antarctic ice.

Dr. Anton Padalka told authorities in Switzerland that the researchers discovered a bizarre and deadly life form dubbed Organism 46-B – a highly intelligent octopus-like creature that claimed the lives of three of the team members. Lake Vostok is the largest of Antarctica’s almost 400 known subglacial lakes.

Lake Vostok is located at the southern Pole of Cold, beneath Russia’s Vostok Station under the surface of the central East Antarctic Ice Sheet, which is at 3,488 m (11,444 ft) above mean sea level. The surface of this fresh water lake is approximately 4,000 m (13,100 ft) under the surface of the ice, which places it at approximately 500 m (1,600 ft) below sea level.
