Why focus on health freedom Because our future is worth protecting says Health Ranger

We've been covering health freedom topics with great intensity lately, and that has taken away from our typical coverage of natural cures, herbal remedies, medicinal foods and so on.

Some people are asking why we've shifted our focus, and I want to answer those questions with clarity and determination.It's one thing to know HOW to use herbs and superfoods, and there's a wealth of knowledge to be gained in that area. But it's another thing entirely to have ACCESS to those herbs and superfoods without being criminalized or harassed by the government in the process. I would say that...

Swine flu pandemic outbreak sweeping through Britain even though 70 percent were vaccinated last year

Swine flu pandemic outbreak sweeping through Britain even though 70 percent were vaccinated last year

A swine flu pandemic is sweeping through Britain despite the fact that 70 percent of Britain's over-65 population was vaccinated against swine flu last year.

This little detail is left out of every mainstream media report on vaccines and the flu. They simply refuse to...

There are at least five labels out there letting consumers know which meat comes from humanely raised livestock.

And thanks to a new report (.pdf) released this week by Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC), each organization's standards have been categorized in a comparison chart so we know exactly what conditions are factored in to warrant certification for cattle, chickens and pigs.
