Radiation as a medical cure has valid uses and definite dangers to the human body. We use radiation for diagnosis (as in x-rays) and for therapy (as in cancer treatment), but the benefits must be carefully weighed against the costs. Once upon a time, radiation in different forms was new and wondrous and had a million uses -medications, cosmetics, industrial applications, and even entertainment. It was only later that the danger became evident.
Such ’wonders’ consisted of radioactive toothpaste, elixirs, children’s toys with radioactive materials, "dozens of devices produced to add radiation to water", and most dismaying of all - radium suppositories!
The list of horrifying ways that radiation was used in everyday life in the 1940s and 1950s is a good wake-up call. It hopefully makes a modern consumer wonder at the items and methods we use today which we are assured are ’safe’ and ’normal’, but may be seen as wildly dangerous and incredible 60 years from now!
One item that springs to mind is the ’green’ compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) bulb which contains mercury but is sold as an energy-saving ’moral’ product to conserve energy and thus the environment. Just don’t break one, or everyone must flee the contaminated room for their safety!
Other products or concepts that are deemed ’safe’ by interested corporations and agencies are things such as: genetically modified foods, cellphones and wireless tech, geoengineering, TSA Backscatter x-ray scanners, ’green’ products, cosmetics, chemicals like BPA, aspartame, high-fructose corn syrup, fluoride, and more.
In all these cases, studies suggest these items are not as safe as we’re lead to believe. (See related articles below)
History has shown that it’s not always in a consumers best interest to implicitly trust the scientists, corporations, advertisers and other professionals who profess that things are ’safe’, even good for you!
There’s little difference between the above commercial for Camel cigarettes, and the following ad recommending diet drinks containing sugar-replacement chemicals:
The best way to avoid things like radioactive dirt on your face and radium suppositories up your butt is to be aware - search for answers, and stay informed.
The Aeon of Horus is Ending and the Elites are Nervous as their Icons are Dying 2014 04 18
I predict there is going to be a huge resurgence of interest in European indigenous spiritual traditions from Norse to Celtic/Gaelic to Slavic and so on. Millions of Europeans are going to realise that we are the victims of Christianity and New Age garbage. Their bastardised Kabbalah, the psychic force used by Crowley and the elites to cement his Aeon ...
Easter - Christian or Pagan? 2014 04 18
Contrary to popular belief, Easter does not represent the "historical" crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In reality, the gospel tale reflects the annual "crossification" of the sun through the vernal equinox (Spring), at which time the sun is "resurrected," as the day begins to become longer than the night.
Rather than being a "Christian" holiday, Easter celebrations date back ...

The Trials of the Cherokee Were Reflected In Their Skulls 2014 04 18
Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of Tennessee have found that environmental stressors – from the Trail of Tears to the Civil War – led to significant changes in the shape of skulls in the eastern and western bands of the Cherokee people.
The findings highlight the role of environmental factors in shaping our physical characteristics.
Our Fears May Be Shaped by Ancestral Trauma 2014 04 18
Last December, an unsettling Nature Neuroscience study found that mice who were taught to associate the smell of cherry blossoms with pain produced offspring who feared the smell of cherry blossoms, even if they had never been exposed to it before. We knew that the process was epigenetic—that it was not hard-wired in the permanent genetic structure of the mouse—but ...
