  1. Nanoparticles kill 80% of human cells

    Nasty nanoparticles destroy human cells on contact

    Everything is getting smaller these days. You used to need a bodybuilder and a crane to move a television set, but now you can download Bonanza reruns right to your wristwatch.

    And while Corporate America is asking you to swallow the whole miniaturization trend hook, line and sinker, you'd better make sure you don't breathe it. Because the same chemicals these fat cats are using to sell you pocket-sized computers may be tearing your lungs to shreds.

    Missouri researchers just wrapped up a study where they exposed human lung cells to the metal oxide nanoparticles found in electronics, cosmetics, and even Big Pharma pills. And the end result was a biological apocalypse that ought to be a four-alarm wakeup call to every consumer in America.

    Turns out a jaw-dropping 80% of the cells that came into contact with copper oxide and zinc oxide nanoparticles were killed on contact! That's right. When it came to killing your cells, nanoparticles were only 20% less effective than boiling yourself alive!

    And these nasty nanoparticles don't stop there. As I've told you before, nanoparticles have been linked to chromosome damage that could trigger everything from heart disease to cancer. It's all because these tiny particles can slip right past your cell membranes and run amok like an angry bull in a china shop.

    Nanoparticle use is exploding like a powder keg in a volcano, and the industry is one of the most grossly under-regulated in the entire world. Make sure you use this database to find out which products are made with nanotechnology, and do your best to avoid them. Because when it comes to keeping you safe, once again Uncle Sam is coming up small.

  2. You can't get rid of nanoparticles

    Nanoparticles can't be washed off

    My friend, there's no nice way to put this: You're taking part in a massive experiment straight out of a sci-fi/horror flick... and there's no opting out.

    Right now, tiny particles are being dumped into your food and water. They're being unleashed into the air you're breathing. Dumped into medications, cosmetics, furniture, clothing and more.

    This is not a paranoid conspiracy theory. This is the reality of nanoparticles, the untested and unregulated secret ingredients being added to practically everything.

    And as one new study shows, once these particles get onto -- or INTO -- something, there's no getting rid of them.

    In a series of experiments on pears, researchers soaked the fruit in a solution of silver nanoparticles -- a nanoparticle commonly used to fight pests, inhibit microbial growth and extend shelf life of fruit and vegetables.

    The pear was given a very typical level of exposure -- the same levels that were probably in the last pear you ate.

    And after four days of washing and rinsing, the silver nanoparticles were still there.

    Not only that, but some of the particles soaked through the skin and into the flesh of the fruit.

    That means even if you wash the pear... even if you scrub the pear... even if you PEEL the pear, you're still getting dosed with those nanoparticles -- and once inside your body, these particles can run amok.

    We know from studies that nanoparticles don't simply go into the stomach and out with the waste. They circulate in your blood and may damage vital organs such as the liver and heart.

    They even have the power to pass through the blood-brain barrier!

    One study on fish found they can poke enough holes in the brain to make it look like a piece of Swiss cheese. Other studies have found DNA damage. (You can read more about those and other risks here and here.)

    Since nanoparticles are completely unregulated and don't even have to be listed on food labels, there's no surefire way to avoid them -- so it's on you to take action to protect yourself and your family.

    Contact the makers of the foods you eat and let them know you're not spending a dime on their products until they take a stand against nanoparticles.

    Hit 'em in the wallet, my friend... that's the only way they'll listen.

  3. The dangerous new ingredients hidden in your cosmetics

    Ladies, you know those new, improved makeup brands that are easier to apply, less visible, and that makes you look 10 years younger? If these "latest and greatest" in makeup brands seemed too good to be true, that's because THEY ARE.
