The Farmers’ Almanac, which correctly predicted last winter’s frigid conditions, has predicted that this year will be just as miserable. Here are a few places to escape the cold this winter.
Obesity and Toxic Environmental Chemicals: Two Sides of Same Coin?
There is mounting scientific evidence that environmental contaminants have hormone-mimicking properties that may play a role in premature sexual development. However, it is difficult to measure these effects, as strong as their theoretical basis may be. In terms of research, it’s much easier to correlate a child’s age of onset of puberty with her body mass index (BMI) than with her level of exposure to plastics or pesticides.
However, the obesity and contamination factors are likely two sides of the same coin, having been linked in multiple scientific studies.
The same chemicals that contribute to precocious puberty are in fact also significant players in obesity, such as phthalates.10, 11, 12, 13 Even low levels of toxic chemicals (dioxins, PCBs, BPA, and phthalates) have been shown to cause metabolic changes in mice.
Perhaps the relationship between endocrine-disrupting chemicals and precocious puberty will be clearer in the near future, as the researchers in this latest longitudinal study plan to tackle the chemical exposure issue next.14 For a list of the top 10 chemicals that can potentially cause early puberty in your child, please refer to my previous article on this topic.

What is the real reason for the dramatic drop in teen birth rates? The mainstream media would have you believe that it’s because teens are having less sex and using birth control. While this explains a small percentage of the drop, the large reason is do to inequity, chemical and biological warfare aka population control on the poor by the Global Elite aka International Bankers.
The mystery of the falling teen birth rate
U.S. teen birth rates fell dramatically during the past two decades, plummeting 57 percent and saving taxpayers billions of dollars, a new government report shows.An estimated 4 million fewer births occurred among teenagers as a result of the decline, according to researchers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
That “eye-opening” reduction in births “leapt out at me from the report,” said Bill Albert, chief program officer of The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. Read more… http://dlvr.it/6jMsjX
San Francisco, California Area Rocked by Strong Earthquake
— Lyall Davenport (@Lyalldavenport) August 24, 2014
A preliminary 6.0-magnitude earthquake rocked the San Francisco Bay area early Sunday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
The earthquake struck 4 miles northwest of American Canyon, California in Napa County at around 3:20 a.m. local time. The quake was felt over a large portion of northern California, including San Francisco, with the strongest shaking experienced in Napa, Solano and Sonoma Counties.
According to NBC News, the earthquake knocked out power to more than 50,000 people early Sunday. According to the San Francisco Chronicle there were reports of minor damage to westbound Highway 37, but so far there have been no reports of major damage to infrastructure or reports of injuries. - weather.com
A preliminary magnitude 6.0 earthquake rocked the San Francisco Bay Area early Sunday morning, centered in the Napa County town of American Canyon, but felt across Northern California.

In 2011, a study by the University of Chile showed the probability that the chemicals in tear gas can damage a fetus in the last trimester of pregnancy and cause miscarriages. In 2012, the group, Physicians for Human Rights, was studying the effects of tear gas as it was being used on civilians in Bahrain, and they also found that CS gas can cause clinical spontaneous abortions just weeks after exposure. They also found this effect isn’t limited to just the last trimester and can affect fetuses at any stage of development. And in 1988, a UN report linked dozens of miscarriages to the use of tear gas by Israelis against Palestinians. That was almost 30 years ago, and the same thing is still happening today. Israelis are still lobbing tear gas, made in the USA, at Palestinians. And American police in Ferguson are now lobbing canisters of this gas, which has been linked to spontaneous abortions.
