BULLET POINT HEALTH BRIEFS: The ‘cat study’ and more


What does a ‘cat study’ have to do with our health? Apparently a lot.

Francis Pottenger’s class cat study, or the modern recap in the book Pottenger’s Prophecy, shows what the Standard American Diet has done to us in three generations.

In his study using cats, after three generations of nutrient-deficient feeding  skeletal and dental deformities, reproduction difficulties and immune system problems began multiplying.

These are signs of the modern nutrient-deficient times in human health.

Each of these problems is big business for the food and medical-industrial complex.


About three generations ago two false premises swept through our land grant universities charged with public benefit for agriculture.

The first promoted partial and imbalanced crop nutrition focused on only primary nutrients fed via salt fertilizers; the second was the use of toxic chemistry with gene-damaging abilities.

On top of these agricultural falsehoods was thrown the insult of industrial farming methods, food processing and modern packaged foods.


GMOs were publicized as ‘feeding the world’ and eliminating hunger in the poorest countries. The world trade figures tell a different story, according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG).

Eighty-six percent of U.S. agricultural exports in 2015 went to 20 of the world’s wealthiest and most developed export destinations such as China, Canada, Mexico and the EU.

“We are mostly sending meat products and animal feed to wealthy countries, says EWG spokesperson Anne Weir Schechinger. “We are not sending much food at all to countries struggling to feed their people.”


President-Elect Trump’s final pick for head of the Environmental Protection Agency is Scott Pruitt, not Myron Ebell as had been considered earlier. Pruitt was the Oklahoma Attorney General who has gone head to head with the EPA for years.

Is that good or bad? More about that later.


Ladies, protect your lymphatic system. Avoid constrictive clothing, especially underwire bras.

The lymphatic system is responsible for neutralizing toxins and purifying the body. Underwire bras interfere with lymphatic flow and drainage from the lymph nodes located in armpits and the upper chest.

According to NaturalHealth365.com, long-term constriction impairs the lymph function and can result in damage to the fibrocystic breast tissue and even breast cancer.


Congress passed a bill in November (mis)labeled 21st Century Cures, according to Alliance for Natural Health.

It has gone to the Senate (S-2742), which broke the bill into 12 separate pieces. One doubles up on the vaccine schedule, increasing vaccines for pregnant women, babies in the womb and newborns.


Other news from the 21st Century Cures bill, explained by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International, drastically broadens criteria for forced psychiatric tests. This draconian proposal undermines existing FDA regulations essential for making sure medical and drug research is conducted ethically, scientifically and safely.


The FDA, with the go-ahead from Congress, is fast-tracking all new vaccines, named the ‘Christmas Tree Bill,’ by opponents, according to the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC).

Barbara Loe Fisher of the NVIC says, “Making experimental drugs quickly available to the sick and dying who request them is one thing. But Congress should not be greasing the skids to license experimental vaccines that government will recommend and legally require for healthy children and adults.”


“I think that the biological case against thimerosal (mercury in vaccines) is so dramatically overwhelming anymore that only a very foolish or a very dishonest person with the credentials to understand the research, would say that thimerosal wasn’t most likely the cause of autism.” Boyd Haley, Ph.D (2006)

“I am no longer trying to dig up evidence to prove vaccines cause autism. There is already abundant evidence….this debate is not scientific, but political.” David Ayoub, M.D.
