A lot of people trust the website Snopes.com and use it to fact-check things they hear on the internet. For no reason whatsoever, this mom-and-pop website has been put on a pedestal as if they are the be-all and end-all of truth on the internet.
So, is Snopes really a credible and authoritative source of information? Let's look at the facts: -
Snopes is now 50% owned by an ad agency (Proper Media) and they make money by generating millions of views on the 3rd-party advertisements on their website. It simply makes sense for them to seek out articles that are viral to “debunk”, so that they can piggy-back on that traffic and generate more advertising revenue. .
Snopes was founded by a husband and wife team who are now in the middle of a contentious divorce in which founder David Mikkelsen has been accused of embezzling $98,000 of company money to spend on “himself and prostitutes”. -
Snopes now has a hired team of suspect fact checkers who collaborate to debunk falsehoods that are trending on the internet. -
These fact checkers reportedly have no editorial oversight and do not follow standard journalistic procedures such as interviewing the authors of articles they are trying to debunk to get all sides of the story. -
Snopes doesn’t have a formal screening process for hiring fact checkers and for evaluating applicants for any potential conflicts of interest. Without such standards, it is very easy for them to be infiltrated by those who work with the industry and who have a hidden agenda.
Moral of the story? Follow the money if you want the answers. Oh yeah.... and don't trust Snopes.com from @organic_ag_solutions
Most people have heard of a chemical called THC, which is the ingredient in #marijuana that gets users high. But recently, attention has shifted to another compound in marijuana called #CBD and for good reason. Because while doctors can’t seem to look past certain side effects of #THC , CBD doesn’t appear to present that problem. On the other hand, evidence of CBD’s medical benefits continues to grow. -----
Here are 3 facts that you should know about this unique compound
1. CBD is non-psychoactive
Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high. While this makes CBD a poor choice for recreational users, it gives the chemical a significant advantage as a medicine, since health professionals prefer treatments with minimal side effects. CBD is non-psychoactive because it does notact on the same pathways as THC. These pathways, called CB1 receptors, are highly concentrated in the brain and are responsible for the mind-altering effects of THC.
2. CBD has a wide range of medical benefits
Although CBD and THC act on different pathways of the body, they seem to have many of the same #medicalbenefits. -----
According to a 2013 review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, studies have found CBD to possess the following medical properties: Antiemetic, Anticonvulsant, Antipsychotic, Anti-inflammatory, Anti-oxidant, Anti-tumoral/Anti-cancer, Anxiolytic/Anti-depressant.
3. CBD reduces the negative effects of THC
CBD seems to offer natural protection against the marijuana high. Numerous studies suggest that CBD acts to reduce the intoxicating effects of THC, such as memory impairment and paranoia.CBD also appears to counteract the sleep-inducing effects of THC, which may explain why some strains of cannabis are known to increase alertness.Both CBD and THC have been found to present no risk of lethal overdose. However, to reduce potential side effects, medical users may be better off using cannabis with higher levels of CBD.

Hempcrete is one of the most amazing building products made from #industrialhemp All it is, is #hemp hurds, or the center of the stalk, water, and #lime (which is powdered limestone). Mix it together in a slurry and form it in to the wall of a building and over time the chemical reactions between the water, lime and Hemp will #petrify the hemp and turn the lime back into stone.
Why use hempcrete instead of concrete?
Modern day building materials are either mined from the #earth or harvested from centuries old #forests. Hemp crops can be harvested annually in perpetuity.
One acre of hemp provides as much paper as 4.1 acres of trees. Considering the trees take decades to grow and hemp takes about 4 months, the advantages become clear. In some areas of the US, you can grow more than one crop of hemp a year.
One ton of manufactured cement (1400–1450 °C) releases 850kg of #carbondioxide into the atmosphere! This is a consequence of the #chemical reaction and cannot be reduced by energy saving. The use of lime instead of #cement will save approximately 80% of the #CO2 release compared to ordinary cement. One single residence will save between 5,000 and 10,000 lbs of CO2 emissions.

The one drawback is that #hempcrete takes a long time to cure, so is not good to use for load bearing walls. To make up for this, companies started making hempcrete bricks.
Halloween, harvest festivals, and general autumnal celebrations lead to an abundance of everyone’s fall favorite: #pumpkins. While you partake in #pumpkinspice lattes and #jackolantern carvings, why not share some #gourd indulgences with the #birds? This bird feeder is the perfect use of an extra or post-trick-or-treat pumpkin.
Materials: • Small to medium sized pumpkin, up to 10 pounds • Small sticks • Twine or rope • Birdseed
1. Cut the pumpkin in half.
2. Scoop out the seeds, leaving a hollow inside with 1/2-inch thick shell wall.
3. Insert two sticks across the open pumpkin to create perches for the birds.
4. Knot two lengths of rope together at the center and tack the knot to the bottom of the pumpkin feeder. Hang the other ends of the rope in your chosen feeder location.
5. Fill with birdseed of your choice. .
6. Hang in a tree
The federal agency noted that Young Living voluntarily disclosed its #rosewood oil violations and has been coordinating with the authorities. Under the terms of the plea agreement, the company is to settle $500,000 in fines and $135,000 in restitution.
The essential oils firm was also sentenced to a community service payment of $125,000, which was intended for the conservation of protected species of #plants used in their manufacturing processes.

He's came back at the perfect time for nostalgic older #Millennials and Gen X who used to love and watch his #science show and who now have #children to gravitate towards his message to then #indoctrinate our young children with this bullshit #propaganda. They selected Billy Nye on purpose to do this.
On November 12, 2013, Anthony Samsel and Dr. Stephanie Seneff published a report with 270 references in Toxicology entitled, “#Glyphosate, pathways to modern diseases 11: Celiac sprue and #glutenintolerance”.
The opening paragraph is as follows: “#Celiacdisease, and, more generally, gluten intolerance, is a growing problem worldwide, but especially in North America and Europe, where an estimated 5 percent of the population now suffers from it. Symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, skin rashes, macrocytic anemia and depression.
It is a manufactured disease associated with numerous #nutritional deficiencies as well as reproductive issues and increased risk to thyroid disease, kidney failure and cancer. Here, we propose that glyphosate, the active ingredient if the herbicide #Roundup (made by @monsantoco), is the most important causal factor in this epidemic.
Characteristics of celiac disease point to impairment in many cytochrome P450 enzymes, which are involved with detoxifying #environmentaltoxins, activating vitamin D3, catabolizing vitamin a, and maintaining bile acid production and sulfate supplies to the gut.
Glyphosate is known to inhibit cytochrome P450 enzymes. Deficiencies in iron, cobalt, molybdenum, copper and other rare metals associated with celiac disease can be attributed to glyphosate’s strong ability to chelate these elements.
Deficiencies in trypophan, tyrosine, methionine, and selenomethionine associated with celiac disease match glyphosate’s known depletion of these #aminoacids. Celiac disease patients have an increased risk to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which has also been implicated in glyphosate’s exposure.
Reproductive issues associated with celiac disease, such as infertility, miscarriages, and birth defects, can also be explained by glyphosate. Glyphosate residues in :wheat and other crops are likely increasing recently due to the growing practice of crop desiccation just prior to the #harvest. #GlutenFreeDiet#GlutenFree www.gmoevidence.com

8-10 pieces rice paper
2 Tbsp #oliveoil
3 Tbsp #tamari (or soy sauce if you don't have tamari)
½ Tbsp #garlic powder
¼ tsp liquid smoke (you can also sub
1 Tbsp bbq sauce if you do not have access to liquid smoke)
½ Tbsp #maplesyrup
¼ tsp ground black pepper
¼ tsp of Hungarian paprika or regular.
Cut #ricepaper into thick strips, by laying two sheets on top of one another. Use a large, very sharp knife to cut the sheets into strips
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Prepare 2 baking sheets with sheets of parchment paper.
In a bowl, whisk together all the ingredients except the rice paper. This will become your #marinade.
Prepare a second wide bowl filled partway with water.
Take two strips with similar length and shape and lay them side by side. Using a pastry brush, brush each sheet with water and stack them one on top of the other. They should start to stick together.
Brush water along the side facing you and, holding them together, flip the paper over and brush that side with water.
Lay on a piece of parchment or a cutting board and do this with as many pieces as you can until you run out of space.
Once you've run our of space or rice paper- whichever comes first- using dry pastry brush (do not using the one you used for water- it will dilute the marinade) and brush the marinade onto one side of the now fused rice paper strip, and lay marinade side down onto the baking pan.
Now brush the marinade onto the strip facing you, coat generously. Both side should now have marinade on them.
Repeat technique with remaining rice paper strips until the baking sheet is filled, whisking the marinade every so often to prevent separation.
Bake for about 7 to 8 minutes, until crisp.
The strips burn easily, so keep an eye on the baking sheet and remove from sheet right away. #ThingsVegansEat#VeganRecipies

(Zoom in and read both pics) The #CodexAlimentarius agenda, which has long metastasized in the recesses of closed board rooms and governmental chambers, is now coming to light. This is the paramount issue of our times, yet few know about it. If Codex standards ever replace the current laws in the U.S. governing #food and #dietarysupplements, it will affect not just Americans' right to choose supplements, but our right to #growcrops with untampered seeds, to buy pure #organicfood, and to live free of the tyranny of Big Agro-Chem-Pharma-Med, through health-destructive #FDA rules enacted and enforced by a pro-corporate government that cares nothing about our health freedom. In other words, the "#naturalhealth" industry will perish.
Modern Codex regulations are prepared by the #CodexAlimentariusCommission (herein referred to as "Codex"), which works with the #EU and #UN in an attempt to regulate every aspect of food production, packaging, preparation, preservation, and presentation of food "from #farmtofork." Codex also attempts to regulate supplemental nutrients. It even goes so far as to eliminate "#organicproduce" standards (through dilution)! Because the U.S. is a member of the #WorldTradeOrganization (WTO), and because the WTO and other treaty agreements require the United States to adhere to Codex standards, any changes approved in Europe, and implemented in the EU-dominated Codex meetings, could subject the United States to WTO-enforced trade sanctions.
The plan is to suppress all beneficial, high-potency nutrients, and to allow only those and a few other vitamins and minerals that will be high-priced, low-dosage, and synthetically-made by drug companies.
Codex regulations will become binding internationally. Any nation that has entered into trade agreements through the WTO and its adjunctive treaties will eventually be forced to adopt Codex standards.

from @vintage_vegan_ - It’s already here. This is why I say get off cheese period.
Be careful of some of these so called #vegan accounts on IG that endorse all these #fakefood#fakecheese and #yeast#mockmeat
Get back to momma nature.
Yeast in any form rather it’s nutritional yeast is NOT vegan and not good for you.
Interestingly, they have dubbed the product ‘Real Vegan Cheese’ because they claim that other vegan cheese-like foods are merely substitutes.
Genetically engineered bakers yeast is inserted with DNA strands, some of them human to cut down on allergies they said to make the yeast into a “milk” protein creating factory.
But no actual mammal DNA is used. The yeast stays behind for the end product.
They say: “To create our proteins, we study animal genomes, choose milk-protein genetic sequences, and synthesize those genes.”

from @streetwearaddicts714 - The fuckery is real, so when people tell me "it's the end of times" I remind them the Government is not God. However the Zionist #JewWorldOrder who owns your Government and created your Religions could probably make their esoteric and nefarious agendas play out in real time. Info taxed from @truthisstrangerthanfiction if you want "sources" it's on the fuckin document. Go look it up on your .Gov websites.
St. Andrews Church was used as location for a black mass fashion show.
A troupe of models pranced the runway inside of a #Catholicchurch while rocking #Turkish fashion designer @DilaraFindikoglu’s #Illuminati-inspired line for “Fashion Week.” The controversial pieces make up Dilara’s “Spring/Summer 2018 collection,” and are likely to attract the attention of deep-pocketed fashion goers from around the globe, such as #Rihanna who’s previously been spotted in the designer’s exotic rags.
One of the show’s highlights was when Dilara utilized dragqueen Violet Chachki to sport a devilishly red hot outfit which showcased Chachi’s hair as proverbial horns, while Illuminati-esque imagery filled the background. #Killuminati from @freedom_faction
All the more reason to shop local!!!! Farmers market, CSA program. Growing your own.
from @the_boycott_movement - "The “USDA Organic” label on your #produce aisle might not be as advertised. The inspector general released an audit yesterday that lights into agency officials tasked with overseeing organic standards. It investigated how good a job they’re doing with ostensibly “organic” #imports, and found that it’s way too lax. The report checked to see if imports sold domestically as organic were in fact compliant with the USDA’s clear-cut standard.
Unfortunately, it turns out, the agency’s #Agricultural#Marketing Service (the office that monitors compliance) can’t “provide reasonable assurance” that those items from abroad are actually “from #certified organic #foreign#farms and #business,” the report notes. The #inspector general’s office decided it should look into this mess after alarming reports surfacedback in May that some 21 million pounds of conventional soybeans, plus a few million more of #corn, had somehow entered American grocery stores carrying a #bogus certified-organic label. Results from this audit suggest that the USDA should find a way to wake its #food-monitoring department up.
The report says the AMS can’t, simply put, prove that foreign products are from suppliers that follow the USDA’s organic standards. In fact, monitoring is such a joke that auditors learned, in a bonus surprise, that there’s not even an effective procedure in place to prevent shipments of legit organic food from sometimes getting sprayed with extremely nonorganic #insecticides like aluminum phosphide upon arrival, alongside the conventional produce. The report acknowledges that these failures increase “the risk that non-organic products may be imported as organic into the United States,” before adding that it can also “create an unfair #economic#environment for U.S. organic producers."
Several members of #Congress wasted no time in blasting the agency. The USDA failed to say in its report how widespread it thinks this problem is."
Over 31,000 scientists have united against the political agenda of global warming. The scientific consensus, which includes over 9,000 scientists with Ph.D.s, supports the necessity of carbon dioxide and sheds light on the agenda of global warming, which includes industrial energy rationing, central economic planning, and global taxation schemes. These scientists are now speaking out against the hoax of global warming and how global agreements to limit greenhouse gases are actually destructive to all plant and animal life on the planet.
The petition, which includes important peer-reviewed research, is backed by various scientists with a wide spectrum of expertise. The petition warns the United States about signing international treaties that only put a financial burden on the citizens of the country, steal national sovereignty, and restrict its energy production. The global warming alarmism, in other words, is pseudo-warfare designed to take down a country.
A letter from Frederick Seitz, President of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, is also being circulated with the petition. The letter warns about the flawed science against carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is essentially a miracle molecule of life, not a dangerous pollutant that needs to be eradicated from the atmosphere. His letter also shines a light on the dangers of the U.S. entering global treaties which will ration energy and confiscate the Nation’s wealth.
Just because climate alarmist Al Gore can walk a stage, point to a graph, and correlate rising temperatures over oceans with a rise in greenhouse gases, does not make global warming a real issue or some kind of “settled science” that is going to destroy the planet. As the scientists point out, the vapor pressure of CO2 over sea water is temperature dependent. It’s natural for the two data sets to go up together. It’s not something to be alarmed about.
The petition urges elected leaders to reject the global warming agreement that was written in Kyoto, Japan in December 1997 and all other proposals similar in nature. from @anon4lif3
A study commissioned by the Plant Based Foods Association and The Good Food Institute revealed that the plant-based foods market topped $3.1 billion in sales.
Collected by the market research company Nielsen, the data includes sales information from mass merchandisers & grocery, drug, club, dollar, & military stores.
The results showed an overall growth in plant-based foods of 8.1 percent from last year.
Some of the highlights from the study include a 20 percent increase in sales of plant-based dairy alternatives, such as #vegancheese, #veganicecream, and #veganyogurt, which together topped $700 million in sales.
The plant-based milk category increased 3.1 percent from last year, whereas sales of #cow’s #milk dropped about 5 percent.
As for plant-based meat, sales grew 6 percent compared to a year ago, with refrigerated products selling at a higher rate than frozen. #Plantbasedmeat accounted for 2.1 percent of refrigerated & frozen meat products sold at retailers.
Bruce Friedrich, executive director of GFI, discussed the findings:
There is a revolution going on in the plant-based meat space. Right now, the sector is small, but growing, & we are working hard to create a viable market sector.
It is especially impressive to see that all the plant-based companies are working cooperatively, because a rising tide will lift all boats.
The rise in #veganism isn’t a niche trend, but rather part of a global dietary shift away from animal products.
Over the past decade, veganism has seen consistent growth as millennials—the world’s largest generation—purchase their own food.
Concerned about the #environment, #animalwelfare, and their health, this generation boasts more self-identifying #vegetarians than any other, according to The New York Times.
NBC reported earlier this year that Google searches for "vegan" increased by 33 percent from 2015 to 2016. This is slightly higher than the increase from 2014 to 2015.
Lux Research expects #plantbased#proteins to make up a third of the global protein market by 2054.

Here are 10 benefits you’ll experience when you eat #pumpkinseeds. 1. Better immune system
The #zinc in pumpkin seeds will boost your immune system. Zinc also has other #healthbenefits like better sleep, improved #skinhealth, better male sexual function, #insulin regulation and cell growth. There’s a high chance you have #zincdeficiency due to drugs, #plantbaseddiets and #lackofminerals in the #soil.
2. Eliminate #magnesium deficiency
You only need to eat half a cup of magnesium to get the recommended daily amount of magnesium. Magnesium has shown many health benefits like improving heart health, lowering cholesterol and reducing risk of stroke.
3. Improve #prostate health
Studies show that zinc improves prostate health. Eating pumpkin seeds or pumpkin seed oil will benefit your prostate health.
4. Get more #omega3s
Pumpkin seeds are one of the best sources of #plantbased omega 3s (ALA). As you may know, omega 3 fatty acids fight inflammation, lower risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and so on.
5. Reduce risk of #diabetes #Pumpkin seeds lower risk diabetes and improves health of #diabetics. They do this by regulating insulin levels. These seeds also lower oxidative stress which reduces diabetic problems.
6. Better health for #postmenopausal#women
Pumpkin seeds contain natural #phytoestrogens which lower bad cholesterol, reduce headaches, joint pain and most of the health problems experienced by menopausal women, according to research.
7. Fight inflammation
Pumpkin seeds have anti-inflammatory effects. In one study, researchers found that pumpkin seeds were as effective as indomethacin (a drug used to treat arthritis).
8. Better #heart and #liver health
Pumpkin seeds contain fiber, fats, and antioxidants – all these contribute to a healthy liver and heart.
9. #Sleep better
Pumpkin seeds increase the production of the sleep hormone, melatonin. Eat them a few hours before bedtime to sleep like a baby.
10. Reduced risk of #cancer
Research shows that pumpkin seeds can lower risk of #breast, prostate, colon, stomach and lung cancer.
Coconut oil is said to make marijuana more ‘bio-available”, meaning the degree to which food #nutrients are available for absorption and utilization in the body. #Coconutoil is especially effective when it comes to extracting #THC due to its saturated fat content.
It is capable of absorbing much more #cannabinoids than #butter or other #oils. The fact that #marijuana is a potent #medicine is no longer a secret, and the #medicalmarijuana movement is gaining. For centuries humans have used the #cannabisplant to treat an array of conditions.
One of the easiest, safest and #healthiest ways of consuming medical marijuana is to infuse it into coconut oil.
Like marijuana, coconut oil has a multitude of benefits and is used as a #natural skin care and hair care product. Pure, #organiccoconutoil boosts the #immune system and aids with digestion among other things. This is because of the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid. These acids work as anti-microbal, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agents.
When marijuana is combined with coconut oil, it results in a cannabinoid intense #medicine that can either be taken in capsule form, added to food or applied topically.
Even just taking a half a teaspoon of coconut oil along with your drop of #medicalmarijuanaoil can increase the bio-availability of the medicine.
To make #infusedcoconutoil, use 1 gram of decarboxylated cannabis for every ounce of coconut oil. Coarsely crumble the cannabis, put it in a jar and add the #coconut oil. Put the lid on the jar and place it in a pan of water. Heat the water to just below boiling for 1 hour. This prevents the oil from overheating.
Strain the oil to remove the #plant material. Be sure to press all of the liquid out of the cannabis. Strain it through cheesecloth if you wish.
At this point the coconut oil can be eaten as is, used as an ingredient when #cooking, or used as a topical (#salve#lotions etc.). You can cook with the oil as long as the temperature is less than the boiling point of THC, that is, 315° F. #natureheals
