An opportunity for humanity suppressed
1 acre of hemp that takes less than six months to grow can be used to produce as much paper as it takes 4 acres of trees which takes 50 years to grow
For tens of thousands of years, hemp has been used all around the world in a wide range of products from foods, medicines, rope, clothing and even plastics. It is a very versatile crop that grows almost anywhere and it even improves the soil in which it grows.
It was widely used throughout the world to the 1930s when the oil industry was beginning to boom and they discovered that they could make plastics from oil. But hemp oil is also

Or what’s killing us
What future do our children have?
The toxic residues produced by industry over the past 2000 years have been conveniently overlooked. The Romans infamously used lead pipes and the lead drove them insane. More recently we switched to copper pipes but then it was discovered that as copper ages, the oxidised copper is harmful to our health and these were replaced with galvanised steel which were too expensive and today most people use plastic which presents another set of problems.
Modern society is driven by desires and some of them like access to clean water are vitally important whereas the desire for profits or to have the same stuff as one’s neighbours is totally

The mechanics of energy in nature
By Gauri Mataji Devi
The word karma has entered the vocabulary of all the modern languages and has become a household word, but often its meaning is trivialized and distorted due to cultural superimpositions and lack of proper information. It is generally used with the meaning of destiny, retribution or punishment, ie. what goes around comes around, as you sow, so shall you reap, or what you put out comes back.
In Abrahamic ideologies, this destiny is the “lot in life” incomprehensibly and unquestionably assigned by a tyrannical God to each individual at birth, and that must be accepted without discussion and without attempting to improve one’s situation.
To this fatalistic

DNA or Deoxyribonucleic acid
DNA symbol circa 5000 BC which became a medical symbol
DNA is often thought of as the blueprint of our body inherited from our parents and then passed in through our genes to our children. What is little known however is that there has been a knowledge of DNA for thousands of years across India and Persia, and this was used to prevent inbreeding within the population. This is known as ‘gotra‘ and families were able to trace their lineage back for many thousands of years.
The way it was practised could also be described as eugenics because it kept the population healthy. In another aspect, it is referred to as karma or memory.

The tip of a growing wedge into Asia
The topic of genetic engineering, only occurs in the mainstream media when groups like Greenpeace and other concerned citizens take action by destroying genetically modified crops. Yet most of our mainstream media has not bothered to look into the genetic modifications of food and its reporting mostly supports the corporate bias.
In the United States of America, it is estimated that genetically modified food can be found in about 80% of all processed food products and meat. Within the USA, the public has no right to know what foods are or are not geneticly modified and the genetics industry there has government endorsement and protection.
The primary reasons for growing genetically modified

And a nail in the coffin of life on earth
The news over the past week carried the story of the agrochemical giant Bayer’s announcement that it’s impending merger with Monsanto, the most hated company on the planet.
These two companies joining into one mega-corporation is truly the stuff of nightmares. Together they would be the biggest seed company AND the biggest pesticide company in the world with control over almost everything we eat and grow. It would mean more bee-killing neonics in our fields, more toxic glyphosate in our food, and more corporate control over our food supply.
This is not yet a done deal as Bayer and Monsanto must get this merger past regulators in the U.S. and

An electric wheelchair becomes a necessity as MS advances
Multiple sclerosis which is often referred to as ‘MS’ is a disease that damages or strips away the insulating covers of nerve cells (myelin sheath) in the brain and spinal cord. This damage in essence creates a short circuit (as in an electrical system) which disrupts the ability of the nervous system to communicate. This causes a wide range of symptoms from a lack of coordination and loss of motor function which leads to an inability to walk or perform simple tasks, mental problems. Over time the affected person becomes confined to a wheel chair and eventually requires 24/7 care.

Do you want to live and be happy?
Were it not for our technology, the knowledge of the world at War and all the atrocities that go on would be a distant rumour that would have taken months to circle the globe. But last week when a naive and excited young girl went on a date with a Muslim man she thought charming and safe, images of her dismembered corpse appeared in the world media the next day.
While our media is full of horror stories and it seems like Doomsday is fast approaching, how do we make sense or even retain any semblance of sanity? Our politicians are playing games with our lives for the betterment of their

And it’s impact on civilisation
It’s a well established fact that alcohol dulls the senses and over a long-term period destroys brain tissue. Yet we are sensory beings and we rely on our senses to perceive the world around us as well as to make sense of that world. Therefore alcohol in effect is destroying sensitivity to life; in other words, making drinkers stupid.
Civilisation is a recognition that one belongs to a collective. So if we look at ants, each colony is a unique civilisation in a similar way to us. As human beings we all share common traits, but our sense of civilisation depends on our language and upbringing.
When we look at human civilisation, in the West

Pure white and deadly
Natural sugar cane
The phrase ‘pure white and deadly’ has been around for a long time and few people seemed to care until it’s too late, but others are awakening and dropping it from their diet.
We instinctively know that sweet things are safe to eat as in nature sweet foods are safe to eat and mothers may notice that babies will readily eat sweets, but it takes about 15 attempts before the baby will eat savoury foods. This is because we instinctively trust sweet foods, but in nature we eat them with the fibre.
Sugar is a modern food additive that has no nutritional value and is not required for our survival.
