It's often used as a quick weight loss method - but fasting could also help the body to fight off disease. Refraining from food for as little as two days can regenerate the immune system, helping the body to fight infection, according to a new study.

Scientists at the University of Southern California said the findings could have major implications for the elderly and people suffering from damaged immune systems, such as cancer patients. Researchers tested the effects of fasting for two to four day periods over the course of six months on both mice and humans. In both cases, long periods of not eating significantly lowered white blood cell counts. And in mice, each cycle of fasting then "flipped a regenerative switch" that triggered stem cell-based regeneration of new white blood cells, thereby renewing the body's defence system.

As if there were not already enough concern about the impact of GMO crops on agriculture and the environment, a new international study raises the worry that a diet including genetically modified ingredients may be contributing to obesity.

The effect of GM foods on rats, mice, pig and salmon is being studied by an international team from Hungary, Austria, Ireland, Turkey, Australia and Norway. In March they reported preliminary findings that found no negative metabolic changes in the pigs, salmon or mice they tested. The results released in July link GM corn with modest weight gain in rats. The animals were fed corn with an insect-resistant gene. The control group ate unmodified corn. During the course of the 90-day study, the gm-fed rats gained more weight than the others.

As mainstream society inches increasingly further away from the natural order of things, some scientists are busy hatching new methods of human reproduction that employ the same gene-altering techniques used by biotechnology companies like Monsanto.

And according to new reports, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is fully on board with this brave new agenda, having recently met to discuss the future of what the mainstream media is now referring to as genetically modified (GM) human beings. A chilling report by The New York Times explains that a special FDA advisory committee recently met to discuss the approval of "radical biological procedures" that involve splicing and dicing the genetic blueprint of the human form.

Federal investigators have found that a Harvard University psychology professor who resigned after being accused of scientific misconduct fabricated data and manipulated results in experiments.

The Boston Globe reports that the findings about Marc Hauser were contained in a report by the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Research Integrity released Wednesday. Hauser resigned last summer, ten months after a faculty investigation found him "solely responsible" for eight instances of scientific misconduct at the Ivy League school.

The guy is Vernon Johnston, and his story was first reported as a Natural News citizen journalism article in 2009.

That was around one year after being informed he was cancer-free from stage IV prostate cancer that had metastasized into the bone matter of his pelvic area in June of 2008. Now here it is, over five years later, and apparently Vernon's still going strong, according to his website reports, videos and announcements. The last known blog posting from Vernon was in August of 2013. That's five years and two months after being pronounced cancer-free at a Veterans Administration hospital. The mainstream medical standard for considering cancer cured is five years in remission or cancer-free. That self-imposed standard is rarely met with surgeries, radiation treatments and chemotherapy sessions. Many die from those treatments within five years!

The British Medical Journal (BMJ), one of the world's most highly revered scientific medical publications, has published an article that condemns influenza vaccines and their marketing.

Influenza vaccines are killers, life destroyers, and provide little or no benefit. The evidence is clear. A report published in the BMJ clarifies how these facts are ignored by health agencies. To get around them, they simply push fear of disease well past the point of absurdity. But the CDC and other health agencies have no other way to sell the unsellable. The last sentence reads: "It's no wonder so many people feel that flu shots don't work: for most flus, they can't."

Why juries hear-and trust-so much biased, unreliable, inaccurate evidence.

Nine days before death row inmate Earl Washington's scheduled execution, his lawyers informed the state of Virginia that it was about to murder an innocent man. Forensic analysis of semen introduced at trial had convinced the jury that Washington, whose mental abilities matched those of a 10-year-old, had brutally raped and murdered a young woman in 1982. Washington's lawyers uncovered evidence that the analysis was faulty. The state halted the impending execution, and following a gubernatorial pardon, Washington was released from prison in 2001. He had been there for 17 years. How could forensic evidence, widely seen as factual and unbiased, nearly send an innocent person to his death? The answer is profoundly disturbing-and suggests that for every Earl Washington freed, untold more are sent to their deaths.

As Assistant District Attorney Jack McCoy said to his boss, 'It isn't easy to prove a negative.' Real-life prosecutors, on whom the U.S. Constitution places the burden of proof in criminal court cases, would concur with their television counterpart.

Generally, it is far easier to prove that something exists than that it does not. Proving the former requires looking only until a thing is found; proving the latter requires looking everywhere a thing could possibly be found.<br><br>Nonetheless, one finds research reporting replete with statements like 'there is no research on...' or 'little research evidence exists that would support...' 'my study is the first to....' Statements of this sort beg the question: have they really looked everywhere they could- Or, as is often appropriate, have they done anything more than a perfunctory keyword search-

Spending time in the foster care system may up a child's chances of having at least one laboratory-confirmed STD by young adulthood.

Results also showed that girls who had been in foster care were more likely to report engaging in risky sexual behaviors, such as having sex with a casual partner, having sex for money or having vaginal intercourse. They were also more likely to report having their first sexual intercourse at a younger age and a higher number of lifetime partners than their peers.
