STUDY: Restroom hand dryers blow microscopic feces particles all over the place… but it’s called "green technology"


Image: STUDY: Restroom hand dryers blow microscopic feces particles all over the place… but it’s called “green technology”

(Natural News)
Hand dryers are supposed to help you clean up after using a public restroom, but a new study has shown that they actually make you dirtier thanks to their ability to blow particles of feces through the air.

In a finding that is sure to make you think twice before you push that big silver button the next time you’re in a bathroom, researchers from the University of Connecticut discovered that hot air hand dryers actually draw microbes in from the air and then blow them back out again.

In the study, researchers placed plates beneath hand dryers that collected the bacteria that was blown out of the devices for around 30 seconds at a time. They found as many as 200 individual bacteria colonies in the plates, with different shapes, colors and smells. When they placed the plates in still bathrooms, they caught no more than one bacterial landing per plate on average. Repeated tests across dozens of bathrooms yielded similar results. Their findings were published in the Applied and Environmental Microbiology Journal.

They checked inside the hand dryers to determine whether they had microbes building up inside of them, but there weren’t nearly enough bacteria to account for the amounts the dryers were distributing, leading to the conclusion that they were coming from the air in the bathroom.

A perfect storm… of fecal particles

Every time you flush a toilet without a lid, the flush’s force sends fecal particles flying into the air as high as 15 feet, and they stay there, suspended like an aerosol. When the hand dryers are used, their intake pulls these particles inside, where they are heated up and then sprayed onto your hands as well as other moist surfaces where bacteria then thrive. Some of the pathogens that were spread included Staphylococcus aureus and Clostridium difficile.

The authors wrote in the study’s conclusions: “This suggests another means of C. difficile transmission and one that may not be interrupted by either hand washing or traditional surface decontamination methods. The role of this potential mode of C. difficile transmission is worthy of future study.”

While the researchers noted that HEPA filters can help to reduce the number of these bacteria, they cannot eliminate them entirely. At the university where the study was carried out, paper towels are now also offered in bathrooms. Lead author Peter Setlow said that the elderly and those who have weak immune systems should avoid using these dryers altogether.

These studies are in line with previous ones showing that hand dryers move bacteria from people’s hands into the air and can contaminate freshly washed hands with deposits of bacteria.

It’s a shame that something that is meant to be “green technology” that helps the environment can actually make you sick. If you don’t want to use paper towels, how can you dry your hands in public restrooms without coming into contact with all that extra human waste bacteria? Some suggest waving your hands around quickly and then patting them dry on your clothing. It’s not ideal, but it does carry fewer risks than using hand dryers.

This study is a good reminder that although a solution may be “green”, it is not necessarily good for you.

Study shows 22% of American millennials haven’t heard of the Holocaust

concentration camps

    

More than one-fifth of millennials in the U.S. — 22 percent — haven’t heard of, or aren’t sure if they’ve heard of, the Holocaust, according to a study published Thursday, on Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day. The study, which was commissioned by The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany and conducted by Schoen Consulting, also found that 11 percent of U.S. adults overall haven’t heard of the Holocaust or aren’t sure if they did.

Additionally, 41 percent of millennials believe two million Jews or fewer were killed during the Holocaust, the study found. Six million Jews were killed in World War II by Nazi Germany and its accomplices.

Two-thirds of millennials could not identify in the survey what Auschwitz was.

“The survey found there are critical gaps both in awareness of basic facts as well as detailed knowledge of the Holocaust,” said a news release on the findings.

A majority of American adults surveyed — 70 percent — agreed with a statement reading: “Fewer people seem to care about the Holocaust as much as they used to.” And 58 percent of Americans believe that something like the Holocaust could happen again, the survey found.

The study on Holocaust awareness and knowledge in the U.S. was conducted between February 23 and 27 and involved 1,350 interviews with American adults 18 and older.

“This study underscores the importance of Holocaust education in our schools,” Greg Schneider, executive vice president of the Claims Conference said in a statement. “There remain troubling gaps in Holocaust awareness while survivors are still with us; imagine when there are no longer survivors here to tell their stories.”

Israelis stood still on Thursday for a nationwide moment of silence in remembrance of the Jewish victims, as a two-minute siren wailed across the country and the nation paid respects to those systematically killed. As every year on Holocaust Remembrance Day, buses and cars halted on streets and highways and Israelis stepped out of their vehicles, standing with heads bowed in solemn remembrance.

The somber day is also marked by ceremonies and memorials at schools and community centers. Restaurants and cafes in the ordinarily bustling streets of Tel Aviv shutter, and TV and radio stations play Holocaust-themed programs. Dignitaries laid wreaths at Yad Vashem, the national Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem.

A third of the world’s Jews were murdered in the Holocaust. Israel was established afterward in 1948, and hundreds of thousands of survivors fled to the Jewish state.

Study: Consuming foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids cuts your risk of death by 33%


Image: Study: Consuming foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids cuts your risk of death by 33%

(Natural News)
Consumption of foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids reduces the risk of death from any cause by approximately 33 percent, according to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology. The study also found that blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids are a better indicator of death risk from any cause than cholesterol.

The researchers of the study measured the serum cholesterol levels and blood levels of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3 fatty acids in 2,500 people in order to determine a person’s risk of developing certain diseases. All of the participants in the current study did not have any cardiovascular disease when the study started.

Although the researchers mainly concentrated on total mortality or death from any cause as an endpoint, they also observed deaths due to cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other causes. Moreover, they reported the associations between levels of omega-3 fatty acids and the risk for any cardiovascular disease occurrence. The participants of the study were 66 years of age, and they were followed the researchers for disease outcomes until around the age of 73. Other factors that could influence the outcomes were also taken into consideration.

The findings of the study showed that higher EPA and DHA levels were linked to a lower risk for total cardiovascular disease events, total coronary heart disease events, and total strokes. Furthermore, this was most evident in deaths from all other causes, indicating that the beneficial health effects of EPA and DHA in the body are not limited to one pathological process, such as plaque accumulation in the arteries.

“When baseline serum cholesterol levels were substituted for the Omega-3 Index in the same multi-variable models, the former was not significantly associated with any of the tracked outcomes whereas the latter was related to 4 of the 5 outcomes assessed,” explained William Harris, lead author of the study.

Other health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fats that can only be obtained from the diet since the body cannot produce them. There are three most important types of omega-3s: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), DHA, and EPA. ALA is primarily found in plants, while DHA and EPA are primarily obtained from animal foods and algae. Some of the foods that are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids include fatty fish, fish oils, flax seeds, chia seeds, flaxseed oil, and walnuts. Omega-3 fatty acids provide many health benefits. Listed below are some of the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids.

  • Improves mental health – Studies found that consumption of omega 3-s may help prevent depression and anxiety, with EPA being the most effective. They can also help prevent age-related mental decline and Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Enhances eye health – DHA may help fight macular degeneration, which can cause vision impairment and blindness.
  • Promotes brain growth and development in infants – Omega-3 fatty acids consumption during pregnancy causes the child to have higher intelligence, better communication and social skills, less behavioral problems, reduced risk of development delay, and reduced risk of ADHD, autism, and cerebral palsy.
  • Fights inflammation – Omega-3s can lessen chronic inflammation, which can contribute to heart disease, cancer, and other diseases, by reducing the production of molecules and substances linked to inflammation. (Related: The Powerful Role of Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Preventing Diseases of Inflammation: The Experts Speak.)
  • Supports skin health – Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA can help keep skin healthy. DHA contributes to the health of cell membranes which make up a large part of skin, and a healthy cell membrane leads to a soft, moist, supple, and wrinkle-free. On the other hand, EPA hydrates the skin, prevents premature aging of the skin, and fights acne.

Your sense of wellbeing may be connected to how secure you feel about your home, fascinating study explains


Image: Your sense of wellbeing may be connected to how secure you feel about your home, fascinating study explains

(Natural News)
Your sense of wellbeing is linked to how secure you feel about your home, according to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Birmingham and University of Manchester. The study was built on the initial findings of a study in 2017 which suggested that social housing plays a role in preventing anxiety in people.

In the study, the researchers looked at a mix of social renters compared to shared owners and owner-occupiers. They interviewed different types of tenants, which included owner-occupiers and social renters. The interviews revealed that one of the most important features of a good home is a sense of security, no matter what the tenure or ownership status of an individual’s home is. Furthermore, good neighbors, good design, and good management are all as significant for wellbeing as a person’s tenure or tenancy. Wellbeing is also influenced by other factors, such as financial pressures like debt, and the stress of raising children.

“There’s an affordability crisis in the housing system and financial challenges are driven by government policy (the loss of grant and changes to how developers can discharge their Section 106 obligations), as well as the cost of land in the ever-rising housing market,” explained Andy Lymer, of Centre on Household Assets and Savings Management at the University of Birmingham.

“But, it’s more vital than ever that housing associations shape the future delivery for the wellbeing of its customers and society as a whole,” Lymer said.

How neighborhood affects health and well-being

Built environments, particularly at the neighborhood level, influence health and wellness. A study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health revealed that residents of traditional neighborhoods walk the most, while residents of suburban developments have the best mental health. (Related: Perceived neighborhood safety linked to overweight status among urban adolescents.)

Adriana Zuniga-Teran, a researcher of the study at the University of Arizona, analyzed how four common neighborhood designs affected the physical activity and overall wellbeing of the residents. In the study, she used a “walkability model” that measured nine different areas: neighborhood connectivity, land use, density, traffic safety, surveillance, parking, resident experience, green space, and community. The residents also answered surveys about neighborhood design elements, their walking habits and motivations for walking, their interactions with neighbors, their perceptions of crime in their neighborhoods, and the presence of trees in their communities.

The results of the study revealed that the residents who walked the most, both for recreational and transportation purposes, were those who lived in traditional neighborhoods, or those who lived near stores and restaurants. However, they also reported the lowest levels of mental wellbeing and the highest perceptions of crime in their neighborhood.

On the other hand, residents of low-density suburban neighborhoods reported higher levels of mental health. Zuniga-Teran said that this could be due to suburban neighborhoods having large lots and trees, and nature providing many mental health benefits.

Those who lived in cluster-housing communities reported that they felt safe from crime. This may be due to the fact that they have the most social interaction with their neighbors. In contrast, residents who lived in enclosed communities did not feel safer from crime, despite the security suggested by the design of their neighborhood.

“Most people in the world live in cities, and that’s the way it’s going to be in the future. Cities are going to grow more than rural areas, and we are going to become an urbanized world, so understanding how to improve life in cities is very important,” she said.

Loneliness: A Health Problem That Could Be Deadlier Than Obesity, Study Says



Next Story

Loneliness can reliably be linked to a significant increase in the risk of early mortality, according to a study at Brigham Young University. Head author, Julianne Holt-Lunstad, notes that “substantial evidence now indicates that individuals lacking social connections (both objective and subjective social isolation) are at risk for premature mortality.”

Holt-Lunstad believes the risks associated with loneliness are already greater than such established dangers as obesity:

Several decades ago scientists who observed widespread dietary and behavior changes raised warnings about obesity and related health problems. The present obesity epidemic had been predicted. Obesity now receives constant coverage in the media and in public health policy. The current status of research on the risks of loneliness and social isolation is similar to that of research on obesity 3 decades ago… Current evidence indicates that heightened risk for mortality from a lack of social relationships is greater than that from obesity.

Furthermore, she warns that “researchers have predicted that loneliness will reach epidemic proportions by 2030 unless action is taken.”

Why Are We So Isolated From Each Other?

From the long view, it can be said that Western civilization as a whole has fostered a gradual disintegration of our physical and social ties. With an emphasis on individual goals and an almost fanatical regard for personal achievement, the traditional institutions of family and community and their capacity to provide their members with a sense of belonging and shared purpose have become significantly fragmented.

The family unit has gone from large generations-linked mutual support systems to small and immediate units, sometimes involving single parents whose necessities make it very difficult to create a stable home environment for their children. Add to that the fact that more and more people are not even building families, and our society has more people living alone than at any other time in history. This includes the elderly, who are less likely to find a ‘fit’ living within their children’s families than ever before.

The decline of the ‘community’ is perhaps as significant as the disintegration of the family unit. In Western-style communities, people work as a collection of individual units interacting by specific functions rather than as an interrelated whole with a significant shared identity. Naturally, attempts are made today to join or build ‘communities’ all the time, but like the Meetup model, they are founded on the gathering of select people with similar interests and purposes, rather than a shared embrace of all people within a certain geographical area.

The Rise of Social Media

I believe the rise in prominence of social media has in part been fuelled by the sense of alienation we have long felt within our modern society. I don’t believe social media is the root cause of our loneliness, as some speculate, but rather a symptom of this much longer-standing social problem. Connecting via chats and web pages is just something that we have gotten into the habit of reaching for since it is so immediately accessible. But like any quick fix, it does not end up fulfilling our deeper needs, either individually or as a society.

If we see that our society has been slowly disintegrating over hundreds of years, then it becomes incumbent upon us as a society (if we can still even identify ourselves with our ‘society’) to take measures to remedy this situation. What those measures might be, though, given how things seem to be trending, is a matter of great conjecture.

On Being Alone  

One approach is to first acknowledge that Western society’s emphasis on the individual is not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, I believe that the development of personal integrity, creativity, and autonomy is a critical step in the evolution of human consciousness. Learning how to be alone with oneself is a part of that process. In his work entitled Pensées, French philosopher Blaise Pascal observed that “All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”

As evidenced by Eastern gurus and mystics, one can be perfectly content in isolation. This can be greatly facilitated by the practice of meditation and other such methods that give us a direct perception of our energetic connectedness not only with other people, but with all things. In this higher state, the damaging emotional impact of loneliness and social isolation are not experienced.

Our Next Step

Still, the life of the yogi remains for the few. The rest of us, it seems, have come to this planet to interact, share, and love. And we have not incarnated into this dense physical world to get better at virtual relationships. At this stage, we have perhaps gotten a bit too accustomed to social isolation for our own good.

Holt-Lunstad notes that “although living alone can offer conveniences and advantages for an individual, this meta-analysis indicates that physical health is not among them.” She also cites another study that “has demonstrated higher survival rates for those who are more socially connected.” And then there is the seminal 75-Year Harvard University study, where “it was universally clear that without loving and supportive relationships, men in the study were not happy.” The message is becoming clear: we need to come together.

We are perhaps at a larger turning point in our development than most of us realize. It seems that we have reached the extreme edge of the exploration of individualism, and we are readying to move into greater balance with a collective identity. This is not a return to traditional ways, but rather a synthesis of our growth as individuals with the shared experience we are now hungering for. This synthesis signifies the next stage of our evolution.

Say what? Smoking found to increase risk of hearing loss, according to study


Image: Say what? Smoking found to increase risk of hearing loss, according to study

(Natural News)
Still dying for a smoke? Besides, emphysema, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, blindness and of course cancer, here’s one more reason to stop smoking  — hearing loss.

A recently-published study published by Oxford University Press showed that the more than 50,000 participants of the over eight year-study showed that “smoking is an independent risk factor of hearing loss.”

Lead author Dr. Huanhuan Hu of Japan’s National Center for Global Health and Medicine added that this makes it even more important to control tobacco use to stem or delay hearing loss. He and his colleagues made the conclusion on the heels of research that took more than eight years to complete. Besides the prolonged time frame, the researchers’ confidence in their findings stems from the study’s large sample size of over 50,000 participants.

They studied data from yearly health checkups, including audio testing and a health-related lifestyle questionnaire per participant. They also analyzed the effects of smoking status (current, former, and never smokers), number of cigarettes consumed a day, and the relationship between length of smoking cessation and the extent of hearing loss. They found a higher risk of hearing loss among smokers compared with non-smokers. (Related: Smoking causes up to 40% of cancer deaths in the US… so why are cigarettes still sold by pharmacies?)

Fortunately, the effects are reversible. The higher risk to hearing loss went down within five years after the person stopped smoking.

Can’t bear the prospect of losing your sense of hearing due to cigarette smoke? Try these simple steps.

  • List down what you like and dislike about smoking. Dr. Daniel Z. Lieberman, director of the Clinical Psychiatric Research Center at George Washington University Medical Center in Washington, D.C. suggests writing down the reasons why you like smoking on one side of the paper, and why you (or your friends and loved ones) dislike it (e.g. it adds years to your face) on the other side. Then mull over the list. Better yet, get your family and friends’ honest opinion. You’re ready to quit when the negative items outnumber the positive ones. Draw another list on why quitting isn’t easy and write other forms of action to take.  Make the list thorough.
  • Set a deadline. Make a “quit date contract”, sign it and get a family member or friend as witness. Include all the reasons you’re quitting. Keep the list with you all the time.
  • Stop buying cigarette cartons. Try buying a pack each time. Carry two or three packs with you at a time. You’ll end up not having a cigarette to puff when you want to. Gaylene Mooney, chair of the American Association for Respiratory Care’s Subcommittee on Smoking and Tobacco-Related Issues suggests taking note of what you’re doing at the time you wanted to smoke and how badly you want to puff a cigarette to see if certain times of the day or if activities promote your cravings.
  • Quit when you’re in high spirits. Studies show that you’re less likely to quit smoking if you’re depressed or under stress.
  • Snack on healthy food. Replace cigarettes with sunflower seeds, nuts, carrots, or celery sticks. This keeps your hands and your mouth busy while giving you the same physical and oral sensations you get from smoking.
  • Store all the money you’re saving on cigarettes in a large glass jar. Watch how that jar fills up and how you’re saving along the way. Set aside that money for something you’ve been wanting to buy but never thought you can afford, like a beach vacation in Florida or a cruise in Alaska.
  • Make yourself some herbal tea. Brewing tea and slowing sipping it as it cools off gives the same stress relief as inhaling nicotine. You may also carry cinnamon-flavored toothpicks and suck on one when you crave for a cigarette.
  • Imagine  playing tennis or go play the game. British researchers discovered that volunteers who want to quit smoking succeeded more if they visualized themselves in a tennis match. It’s good exercise, too.

Life is great when you hear a loved one’s sweet whispers or the soothing sound of your favorite music. Don’t rob yourself of these simple joys by smoking. It’s not worth it at all.

Men are to blame after all, according to study, White Men are more likely to Mix than Women



 


According to one of the most revealing studies we have ever come across, MEN are actually to blame, not women. A study conducted in 2013 by Facebook’s dating app AYI (Are You Interested), reveals that MEN are more likely to mix than women. White men are more likely to be naturally attracted to non-white women than white women.

So all those butthurt MGTOWs like Andrew Anglin for example are bitching and yelling that the evil white women are out there mixing with blacks and sh*t, are 100% WRONG! The MAJORITY of White MEN are more likely to mix than white women. White women are in fact naturally attracted in white men but white men as bastards as they are, are mostly attracted to Asian women instead.

We have tried to analyze this before in our previous articles and we did reach a conclusion before stumbling upon this 2013 study, that White men seem to have a biological attraction to Asian women and vice versa and no don’t jump to conclusions yet. We’re not saying that this is necessarily bad, even though it might be when it happens on a large scale, but we’re saying that it is time to totally discredit those men who claim that they have no fault and that its only the white woman’s fault. Ohh really? Well according to this study, its more of a white man’s fault than anything. If mixing really is happening is happening because white men are into Asian girls and at the same time they ridicule white women, call them names, humiliate them, cheat on them and push them away towards blacks.

Look at what happened to Lauren Southern for example. They shamed her and pushed her away with their purity nonsense saying words like “you were blacked, we don’t want you”. Jesus Christ, she was young she made a mistake and now she has awaken and she would no longer do such a thing, hopefully… besides, isn’t the movement all about CONVERSION of normie people towards Nationalism? Well when you convert these normies, all of them will have some kind of sins due to living in this modern debauched world. So you gotta be prepared to forgive and baptize them and if from the point of conversion forward they’re gonna sin again, then you can say “we don’t want you” but until then we want everybody, even people like Heidi Klum who did the ultimate sin of not only mixing but producing mixed offspring. If she repents, asks for forgiveness and wants to straighten up, we welcome everybody with open arms. Even a tranny like Blair White for example, if says that she/he realizes her sin and wants to straighten up and become a man again, you are welcomed. All is forgiven! Remember when Jesus said in John 8:7: “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” This Bible verse PERFECTLY applies in this case! There is no one without sin and if these people ask for forgiveness and want to join us, we should welcome them with open arms.

If anything, after this study, we think women should lead the freaking movement! I am super serious about this, think as you want, laugh as much as you want, our men are not fit anymore to lead the movement.

We do not have any grudge against Asians, if anything we have the highest possible respect for them, they are high IQ intelligent people, hard working, devoted and racially speaking they just seem to be like a different branch of white people. They are definitely their own separate race but then again so is the white brunette a different branch, the white blonde and the white redhead. Asians have white skin, they can easily carry European genes without totally destroying them likes blacks do, especially countries like Japan, Korea, China, Vietnam, Mongolia. Can’t say the same thing about the Thais and the Filipino people though. So we just wanted to point that this is not a Asian bashing article. We have the highest respect for Asians. In fact according to this study, all races are attracted towards Asian women except Asian men. Asian men are into Latinos which are also some kind of Asian-mixed with whites as the Native Americans are some kind of Southern Asian (like Thais and Filipino). Asian men are also not interested in Asian women probably because their women get so much competition and offers from all races that they feel like they have no chance.

So as you can see in both blacks and whites, women are NOT THE ISSUE. Black women are mostly attracted to black men. Black men however are the problem as they are NOT attracted in their women and prefer Asian women instead. White women tell the exact same story, as they are interested in their own men but their own men are also traitors who go for Asian women instead.

Research examining the preferences of Facebook dating app, Are You Interested (AYI) found black men and women receive fewer responses to their messages. As you can see here, black women reject white men and white women reject black men while all men generally reject black women.

Poor black women… nobody wants them….. while Asian women on the other hand must be in paradise with so many options being courted by males of all races. What is it so special about those Asian women that everybody, including black men wants them so badly? They however reject black men at the highest rate. Some say that Asian women are attracted into white men because they have higher testosterone and are generally more manly than Asian men. This is not the reason Asian women are into white men because black men have even more testosterone than white men yet they get rejected by Asian women. So this white man-Asian woman attraction must be biological as normies who are not racially aware and into identity politics most likely do not perceive a racial difference between Europeans and Asians and quite frankly speaking while yes there are differences obviously, the differences are not that big and Asians may very well just be a different branch within the white race. Its as if all blondes separate and never mix with brunettes or redheads for 1000-2000 years until they become a somewhat different race but still within the same race of whites. Like a subgroup. This is on a subconscious level, because on a conscious level they try to tell themselves that there is no difference between blacks and whites also but however subconscious tells them that there is one and that’s why they reject each other.

We previously said that we noticed a vice-versa attracting between Asian women and White men and this isn’t social, cultural or whatever. The explanation given to this is usually that Asian women are more submissive and feminine and that’s why white men prefer them but no that’s not it because the attraction is reciprocal and it seems more biological than anything, even though that is true, Asian women are usually more submissive but that might not be the only reason. Some also say that this attraction is caused by constant Hollywood propaganda and stuff. It may be true to some extent but then again thousands of American soldiers mixed with Japanese women during WW2 and after it was over and the same happened during the Vietnam war and there were no propaganda movies back then to brainwash men into doing this. And at the same time why did those Asian women gave in to mix with the White men? So you see, its as if they are programmed to be attracted in each other. White men are naturally attracted in Asian facial features and Asian women are attracted in white men. This biological attracting is mostly caused by modern cosmetics because all that an Asian woman would have to do is to dye her hair blonde, wear blue contact lenses, a few red lipstick and bam White males are drooling like crazy because their subconsciousness tells them that they are white women perfectly fit for reproducing within the same racial group. If those Asian women wouldn’t wear Western makeup and dress sexy perhaps there wouldn’t be so many cases of Eur-Asian mixings. You can’t really blame them, its normal for women to want to be as attractive as possible for their future mates.

As we previously reported, white men are so much into Asian women that Thailand which had millions of white men annually visiting the country to sleep with their women, was going through a deep whitening on a large scale. It took the Thai government to finally push for a complete ban on sex tourism. If this would have continued, within 2 or 3 more generations you would have had a complete white Caucasian country in the middle of Asia. And guess what, it took a WHITE WOMAN to put an end to this white male obsession with Thai women as she allegedly built a modified Super-Gonerrhoea virus and threw it in Thailand in order to discourage white men from visiting Thailand and sleeping with Thai women in mass.

With this, men have lost the moral authority to criticize white women and label them as traitors, race mixers and destroyers of civilizations. As you can clearly see here, this is not the case as women seem to be more conservative when it comes to dating, than men are and in fact this shouldn’t shock you at all because the first married interracial couple in America was a white MAN who married a black woman! And not only that but this white MAN is responsible for legalization of interracial marriages. Most nationalists and civic nationalists who are married interracially are also men, Mike Cernovich has a Indian wife, Paul Nehlen has a Latino wife (or something like that), Alex Jones had a Jewish wife, Paul Joseph Watson is gay and is rumored to have had a Chinese gf, Andrew Anglin had many Thai girlfriends and so on. Mixing is indeed more often seen in men than in women.

According to voting patterns women are also more conservative than men but only after a certain age. When they are young, they are naive and stupid, as they age, they become more conservative than men. For example during the Brexit vote, 80% of young women aged between 18-24 wanted to remain in the EU while only 61% of men wanted to remain, as they aged, 38% of men wanted to remain while 34% of women wanted to remain with women outnumber men! Hah surprise surprise!

Our women are only going crazy because our men are going crazy first. Our men should have a leading role who set great examples, yet our men are out there doing stupid child sports such as riding skateboards, bicycles, breaking their bones and their testicles, becoming infertile, playing video games, and other childish stuff and when they wanna mate, they wanna mate with Asians… then they blame our women for their freaking problems! Is this what we call men now?

So its over, it is the white man who is the destroyer of the West, not the white woman! Men are cucking out and proposing to their white women to watch while they get screwed by black men, not the other way around. You almost NEVER see a white woman cucking her husband, watching while he is screwing a black chick. Women are in fact more conservative and more possessive. They usually view their men as their property which is not for lending. Men are more open to lend their women to other men and they often go through enormous heights in order to convince their partners to agree.

So perhaps it would be best if we give a little more credit and room to white women in our movement. Push for our women to become activists. Yes its hard because as conservative as they are in dating relationships, they aren’t really into politics, preferring mostly fashion, social, fitness, entertainment stuff and usually just how they look. Its normal for women to be interested in looks before everything else. Its a great discovery that we’ve just made. Our women are interested in our men but our men are…. gone with the wind…. Women however are also institutionally interested in social acceptance so when you’re hunting for a white woman OR if you’re being hunted by a white woman, if you’re a nationalist, don’t tell her right away, just give her small red pills and in time as months pass and maybe even years you will be able to convert her, don’t tell her “Hey I’m a WN! 14/88!” because she’s gonna leave you in a instant. You will be able to convert her, success rates are 100% IF you take it easy and slow as time passes and she bonds with you, she will tolerate almost anything you put out. Thats how those pathetic white male cucks get their women to get gang banged by blacks as they watch… What they are doing is basically abusing the natural biological bonding of their women, for their selfish disgusting fantasizes!

What is profoundly interesting about all of this, is why are Asian women so obsessed with white men white white women have little to no interest whatsoever in Asian men. Perhaps its because white women do not dye their hair black and wear black contact lenses to appear more Asian, as Asians women do to our white men. White women also have independent and warrior-like characters a thing which does not appeal to Asian men at all as they are into their submissive women. Our women when they wear makeup they usually lighten their hair not darken it, also, this whole mixing is happening within our countries where we are the majority but don’t fool yourself white women would also rather date Asian men than black men anytime.

This article has had a major impact on us and from this day forward we are going to appreciate and target a women audience more than men. 1 single woman can convert thousands of men to nationalism. 1000 single men can barely convince 1 person of any sex to nationalism. We need more women more than anything. If anyone tells you otherwise, unsubscribe! White men need to fight for their white women and white women need to fight for their white men. This whole Yellow fever has gone too far and it needs to stop because its destroying both Europeans and Asians. We are extremely similar races yet different at the same time. We are only similar and closely related but NOT the same! Lets maintain those differences. Perhaps the solution is to separate all white races into different branches when it comes to dating and actively seek to dates such as white blondes only with blondes, white brunettes only with brunettes, white redhead only with redheads, white Asians only with white Asians and finally brown Asians such as Thais only with brown Asians. Perhaps this would be the best solution to prevent a disaster.

So, in conclusion, the solution to this is that there might not be a solution until our men change first, stop being childish, actively seek white women and see beyond those gorgeous makeups Asian women wear. Yes Asian chicks are gorgeous but if you are dating a Asian woman, ask her to see her natural without any makeup, you might have a surprise…

A different makeup by the same woman from above…

Many now go into plastic surgeries so even though genetically they may be ugly, they may be beautiful without makeup. This does not mean however that no one can be beautiful naturally, just open your eyes, start paying attention to details and stop drooling like a fool. You are being fooled!

Study Finds That Fasting For 72 Hours Can Regenerate The Entire Immune System

There has long been controversy surrounding the potential benefits or hazards of fasting. On one hand, supporters of fasting point to the many benefits that they claim fasting provides. This includes promoting weight loss, normalizing insulin sensitivity, lowering triglyceride levels in the body and slowing the signs of aging. There are a number of different ‘fasting plans’ ranging from intermittent fasting lasting, on average, 14 to 18 hours to longer-term plans abstaining from solid foods for 2 to 3 days. Each is said to carry their own benefits and challenges, offering options for everyone.

Many nutritionists and medical professionals argue that fasting is nothing more than an unsupported trend, and carries with it a number of health risks that should be considered. They point to the loss of nutrients during the time spent fasting, as it limits not only the intake of unhealthy foods but also those that our bodies require including fruits, vegetables, lean protein and healthy fats. Furthermore, they argue that fasting often leads to rebound eating, which results in an overall weight gain as opposed to the sought-after weight loss.

New research out of the University of Southern California presents a fascinating discovery, once again bringing the debate to the forefront. The team gathered a group of participants and asked them, in the initial stages, to fast for 2-4 days on a regular basis over a 6-month period. During this time, they witnessed some incredible changes. The participants saw a noticeable decrease in the production of the enzyme PKA, a hormone which has been associated with an increased risk of cancer and tumor growth. Furthermore, the immune system of the participants appeared to get a complete overhaul.

Professor Valter Longo, PhD, the researcher of the study expressed his surprise with the study’s findings, stating, “What we started noticing in both our human work and animal work is that the white blood cell count goes down with prolonged fasting. Then when you re-feed, the blood cells come back. So, we started thinking, well, where does it come from?”

The findings may provide considerable promise for those that are susceptible to disease, currently receiving chemotherapy treatments or simply for our aging population. The research showed that the act of fasting triggered a switch to flip in the body, signalling it to begin a “stem-cell based regeneration of the hematopoietic system.” It forced the body to use up its stores of glucose, fat and ketones, and also started to break down a large number of white blood cells. The loss of white blood cells flagged the body to, in turn, regenerate new immune system cells.

Professor Longo explained, “When you starve, the system tries to save energy, and one of the things it can do to save energy is to recycle a lot of the immune cells that are not needed, especially those that may be damaged.” This would mean that according to the study’s findings the process of fasting for a 72-hour period of time followed by re-feeding with a healthy, nutritionally focused diet can, essentially, provide those who are struggling with a new immune system.

While the possible benefits are definitely worth further review, medical professionals warn that further study is required before it will be seen as a definitive medical option. The study’s co-author Tanya Dorff, MD, assistant professor of clinical medicine at the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Hospital advised, “While chemotherapy saves lives, it causes significant collateral damage to the immune system. The results of this study suggest that fasting may mitigate some of the harmful effects of chemotherapy. More clinical studies are needed, and any such dietary intervention should be undertaken only under the guidance of a physician.”
