Real science: Almost half the population may be infected with a mysterious virus that makes people stupid Tags: stupid virus cognitive function gene expression

(NaturalNews) Scientists at Johns Hopkins Medical School have identified a mysterious virus that literally makes people stupid, and it has so far been found in about 45% of the people tested.

The discovery of the "stupid" virus, normally found in algae, was revealed at the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The study, entitled "Chlorovirus ATCV-1 is part of the human oropharyngeal virome and is associated with changes in cognitive functions in humans and mice" is found at this link on the PNAS.org website.

The rather shocking take away from the study is that the virus alters the gene expression of brain cells, literally making people perform more poorly on cognitive tests, visual processing and spatial awareness.

So far, 90 people have been tested for the presence of the virus, and 40 tested positive, according to The Independent. [2] "Those who tested positive performed worse on tests designed to measure the speed and accuracy of visual processing. They also achieved lower scores in tasks designed to measure attention," reports the paper.

According to the study abstract, the virus alters gene expression relating to "...synaptic plasticity, learning, memory formation, and the immune response to viral exposure."

This virus, in other words, can truly suppress your brain function, memories and immune response. And it is apparently quite common in humans.
 

Stupid virus commentary

Fascinatingly, this discovery makes tremendous sense. Have you ever looked at the world around you and wondered why so many people seem intellectually challenged? Now we know that a virus really can alter the function and expression of your brain cells.

At last, there is a scientific explanation that backs up our observations of other people. Half the population may indeed be infected with the "stupid" virus, altering their cognition, memories and awareness. And if this virus alone isn't enough to get the job done, there's always fluoride in the water, brain-damaging mercury in the flu shots, and reality TV shows that are so dumbed down they actually suck your brain cells into the plasma screen vortex.

This virus, in fact, may be crucial to powering the U.S. economy because people infected with it create economic activity by spending money on lottery tickets, cell phone insurance and synthetic children's vitamins laced with aspartame. Without the aid of this virus, much of the economy would grind to a halt and sales of popular sports drinks would collapse to almost nothing.

The next time someone accuses you of doing something stupid, just reply with, "Hey, I got infected with the stupid virus. But what's YOUR excuse?"

Patient Googles His Way Out of Bypass Surgery Tags: Empowerment Health

TRFW News

Imagine lying in the hospital bed in your gown feeling like there is no hope. You’re a “healthy” individual and have been active for most of your life. You love to exercise, and spend two to three hours a day doing moderate activity. That sounds pretty good right?

Well, for ‘Mr. J,’ this was the case. In fact, he thought he took great care of himself and watched what he ate. He avoided his family’s dietary habits and consumed only chicken, fish, low-fat dairy, with a few fruits and vegetables. One day he was rushed to the hospital after experiencing tightness in his neck. (1)

Mr. J was diagnosed with coronary heart disease and needed coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) immediately. (1)

Lying in his hospital bed, Mr. J googled for another approach.

CABG is the most common open heart surgery in America.  The surgical procedure works to improve the blood flow of the heart. (2) Coronary heart disease (CHD) is one of the leading causes of death; approximately 1 in every 4 people die from it. (3) CHD is preventable through diet and lifestyle choices.

While Mr. J was in bed, he sensed there must be a way out of surgery. Pre-surgery, he googled and discovered the impact of a whole-foods, plant-based diet on heart disease, and immediately decided that was the route he wanted to take. (1)

 

He startled the medical team by giving back his hospital gown and signing himself out of the hospital. Despite pleas from the medical team, he left. The nurse that cared for him was so concerned that she called Mr. J’s wife to have her convince him to stay. Mr. J would not have it, and he politely declined. (1)

Mr. J experienced a remarkable turn-around when following whole-foods, plant-based diet.

Mr. J enrolled into the Cardiac Wellness Center in Montefiore that focuses on reversing heart disease by following whole-foods, plant-based diet along with some appropriate medications. His health turn-around was so remarkable that the medical team was astonished! (1)

Before his hospital visit, walking one block triggered Mr. J’s neck tightness.  Within a week, he could walk 25 blocks without any symptoms! Three months later, he was back to exercising two to three hours daily without incident! (1)

The funny part of this story is that when Mr. J’s previous nurse was diagnosed with cholesterol blockages in her heart, she ignored her own medical doctor’s advice and turned to Mr. J to learn what he had done. The nurse did exactly what he did by embracing a whole-foods, plant-based diet! (1)

Mr. J is not the only person that experiences tremendous turn-around; another patient with multiple sclerosis improved her health tremendously despite the doctor’s prediction that she would end up in a wheelchair.

These are just a few stories of how powerful eating a whole-foods, plant-based diet can be! There are many more!

This Drug Has Sickened Thousands of Animals – Will It Be At Your Holiday Feast? Tags: Drugged Animals Food Helth

This Drug Has Sickened Thousands of Animals – Will It Be At Your Holiday Feast?

Food Babe

I have been to countless holiday meals when I had no control over the ingredients. Of course, I ate what was offered and was polite but knowing what I know now about what’s really in food – it’s hard for me to just shut up and take it. The more we shut up and take it, the more disgusting things like what I am about to share with you continue to happen. That’s why I am sharing these important facts about how to avoid drugged up turkeys this holiday season.

I know it’s tempting this time of year when you get coupons from the grocery store offering a whole turkey for FREE in exchange for shopping in their store. These “FREE” store-brand turkeys generally aren’t free of antibiotics and are raised on a diet of GMOs. Most conventionally raised (non-organic) turkeys are pumped full of antibiotics, and this overuse of antibiotics is creating a major human health issue. Thankfully, because so many of us have raised concerns, including government agencies like the CDC, meat companies are beginning to transition away from using antibiotics. Hopefully in a few years the abusive use of unnecessary growth-promoting antibiotics will be a thing of the past!

But, there’s something else that deserves your full attention.

There is another drug that is permitted to be fed to turkeys in the U.S. that is banned in dozens of countries due to health issues. You won’t find it on the label, it’s been shown to leave residues in the meat, and the meat companies are not required to tell you whether they use it.

 

 This Drug Has Sickened Thousands of Animals – Will It Be At Your Holiday Feast

I’m talking about Topmax (otherwise known as Ractopamine).

Ractopamine is a growth enhancing drug that’s fed to some turkeys to increase their muscle mass. Basically, it’s used to make big turkeys look perfect for a big Holiday feast. We’ve been conditioned to think that “bigger is better” - but when it comes to turkey, its not!

This drug has been shown to cause horrible health problems (and even the death of) animals, as can be witnessed by it’s rampant use on pigs during the last decade. As reported by NBC News, “Since it was introduced, ractopamine had sickened or killed more than 218,000 pigs as of March 2011, more than any other animal drug on the market, a review of FDA veterinary records shows. Pigs suffered from hyperactivity, trembling, broken limbs, inability to walk and death, according to FDA reports released under a Freedom of Information Act request.”
