Dear NaturalNews readers,


NaturalNews Tip of the day (from Mike):

Do you have a family member who is considering conventional cancer therapies like chemo? Here's a strategy to help them reconsider: Ask them if they would enter into an important business partnership with someone -- or hire someone -- without checking at least three references. Most people will agree references are a good idea. Then suggest they ask their cancer doc for three references: The names and phone numbers of three people who have been cured of cancer by the same treatment. They will discoverthere are no references because chemotherapy cures no one!



Patrick Swayze's death following chemotherapy reminds us yet again how deadly conventional cancer treatments can be.

Today, I ask the question: Could Patrick Swayze's life have been saved through natural anti-cancer remedies? Find the answer here:

Contributing author Tony Isaacs explains more today in a timely piece about why chemotherapy spreads cancer:


Almost the whole medical system is upside down and backwards. in Allopathy, prevention is worth almost nothing and only 1% of the total disease care budget is spent in this direction. Natural health modalities are mostly ignored, suppressed or covered up. Expensive, harmful drugs and treatments that generate huge profits but address only symptoms are the PRIMARY focus... In other words, very little of what they verbally promise, is to be found in this Allopathic system of drugs, radiation and surgery. 

What would a sustainable health caring system look like? Turn Allopathy right side up and towards prevention. Train doctors to use holistic natural health modalities that are cheap or free. The natural health modalities actually focus on causes and reversal of causes, rather than just addressing symptoms. If this is done, then we have a chance long term to really fix what is wrong in our civilization.. 

We need to start incorporating natural health modalities such as herbs, juicing, organic foods, homeopathy, and many more into our health system, and have INSURANCE pay for it. If not, we can say goodbye to everything and everyone over the next couple of all of the rest is just destruction, poison and toxic. Allopathy and doctors are not God, and it is not sustainable all by itself. 

Check around... do you know of any adult over the age of forty that does NOT have a health issue of some kind, and is using 'modern' medicine exclusively? Odds are that you will find by doing a survey of your friends and co workers as well as family, that just about everyone around you is 'sick' and dependent on 'modern' medicine drugs, treatment, but only addressing symptoms, not the root cause, right? So if drugs and allopathic treatments are addressing nothing but the symptoms, where are the real solutions, that address the causes and then reverse them sustainably?

The only truly 'healthy' people I know are using natural health modalities exclusively, or as much as possible, with small add ons, when needed, from allopathy, such as testing, to monitor progress. Even with that kind of focus, we still have a toxic indoor and outdoor environment to deal with, but then we have a chance and some hope.

Blue green algae toxicity *crosspost*

It is with a very heavy heart that I write this and I apologize for
its length. Please, PLEASE pass this around.

On Monday, June 25, 2007 I took my healthy 9 month old Border Collie
Vita swimming at approximately 6:30 p.m. Vita and two other BC's spent
about an hour and a half diving off the dock, chasing the Water Kong, and running

The temperature that day was just over 90 degrees, but none of the
dogs looked particularly winded or hot.

Vita emerged from the water and looked as if she was going to vomit.
She threw up lake water three times. I wasn't particularly concerned as
she took in a lot of water from retrieving and swimming so much and had seen
other dogs do that in the past without complications.

After the third time throwing up, she lay down and closed her eyes.
Her tongue was hanging out of her mouth and I began to suspect she may
have heat stroke. I immediately placed ice on her stomach and checked her
gums. They were pink. I took her temperature which was 101.9, still normal. I then
called my Vet who said these conditions did not indicate heat stroke and said
I needed to get emergency medical attention right away.

Vita was not responsive and when I picked her up to put her in the
car she was limp and her eyes were still closed. Her breathing was slow and
her heart was racing. I arrived at the emergency clinic only a half hour from
the time she showed signs of distress. The ER Vet asked me what sorts of
things Vita had been doing all day. I explained that she was crated as I was
gone for the latter part of the afternoon and that upon coming home, the only
other place she went was to the lake.

Vita's eyes were fixed and dilated and the Vet suggested there was
already brain damage. After administering an IV and oxygen, the Vet called
me in and said Vita was not responding and that it appeared that she was
suffering from some kind of toxic poisoning. Her heart rate was 200. He mentioned
that he had recently seen a couple of dogs who died from Blue Green Algae
Toxicity. I told him that the lake had what appeared to be algae blooms on the
surface of the water. Neither of the other two dogs showed any of the signs
that Vita had and that neither dog took in as much water as Vita apparently did. We
decided to put her on a ventilator overnight and give her a "chance" to pull

When I got home I did a search of "Blue Green Algae
Toxicity in Dogs" and found some very disturbing information.

-Blooms can occur at any time, but most often occur in late summer
or early fall. They can occur in marine, estuarine, and fresh waters, but the
blooms of greatest concern are the ones that occur in fresh water, such as
drinking water reservoirs or recreational waters.

-Some cyanobacterial blooms can look like foam, scum, or mats on the
surface of fresh water lakes and ponds. The blooms can be blue, bright
green, brown, or red and may look like paint floating on the water. Some blooms
may not  affect the appearance of the water. As algae in a cyanobacterial
bloom die, the water may smell bad.

-Some cyanobacteria that can form CyanoHABs (Harmful Algal Blooms)
produce toxins that are among the most powerful natural poisons known. These
toxins have no known antidotes.

-Swallowing water that has cyanobacterial toxins in it can cause
acute, severe gastroenteritis (including diarrhea and vomiting).

-Liver toxicity (i.e., increased serum levels of liver enzymes).
Symptoms of liver poisoning may takes hours or days to show up in people or
animals. Symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea, and vomiting.

-Kidney toxicity.

-Neurotoxicity. These symptoms can appear within 15 to 20 minutes
after exposure. In dogs, the neurotoxins can cause salivation and other
neurologic symptoms, including weakness, staggering, difficulty breathing,
convulsions, and  death. People may have numb lips, tingling fingers and toes, or they
may feel dizzy.

Vita had indeed exhibited salivation and signs of weakness,
staggering, difficulty breathing and vomiting.

At 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 26, 2007 I called the Vet and was told
that they took Vita off the ventilator a couple of times during the night
and that she was not breathing on her own. I told him to discontinue the
procedure and to let her go.

I called the DNR here in Michigan and was told that Blue Green Algae
didn't  usually appear this time of year and I told the agent that the
conditions were that of late summer in Michigan, very hot for the last two days and
reminded him that Blue Green Algae can appear at any time. He told me not to
panic or to alarm other people. I told him that had someone else panicked, we
wouldn't  be having this conversation right now.

Later that morning I found out from a neighbor that her two young
boys had vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps last week and her Doctor
suggested she bring in a water sample. I do not know if she did or not.

I also talked to a woman from a neighboring county whose neighbor's
dog ingested a lot of water from a pond and died suddenly a couple weeks

As of this writing, Wednesday, June 27th, I have not heard anything
from Michigan State where I took Vita for a necropsy and toxoligical

For the time being, I would strongly suggest you watch your dogs
when swimming in small lakes and ponds as the potential threat of toxic
poisoning from Blue Green Algae is prevalent. Had I known that algae of any kind was
toxic, you can be sure my dogs wouldn't be swimming anywhere and that Vita,
whose name quite ironically meant "life" in Latin, would be alive today.

Missing you more than you can imagine.
May you rest in peace, Red Top Vita
