Things you don't know about the air you're breathing today



I made this video to grow awareness for the dangers of ultrafine particle air-pollution from traffic and industry. Especially the exhaust from unleaded fuel. Because of my sensitivity of ultrafine particles and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) i have noticed many things healthy people don't feel but still effects everybody living near roads, pesticide spraying and industrial chimneys.

The purpose of this video to show the health and environmental damage done by this kind of air-pollution and to get ultrafine particles and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (better) regulated by all governments worldwide.

I also like to come in contact with people that hold more information about filtering these ultrafine particles and PAH's, so we can protect ourselves better against these life threatening chemicals.

Endocrination


Documentary by Stéphane Horel, France, 2014 | French title: Endoc(t)rinement

A countdown has begun in Brussels. Europe is considering a ban on endocrine disruptors, ubiquitous chemicals that hijack children’s hormonal systems and impair their health. But the potential regulation is a threat for a vast array of economic interests. The future generations mandate an astute baby to lead a behind the scenes investigation of European democracy where industry, scientists and NGOs fight for influence.

The result of an 18-month investigation, Endocrination exposes the indulgence and sensitivity of the European institutions towards corporate influence. Attack of independent researchers, instrumentalisation of science, conflicts of interest: the film also lifts the veil on the various strategies used by the chemical and pesticides lobbies, borrowed from the tobacco industry’s tool-box, to short-circuit the forthcoming regulation.

ISIS War Is Peace: Obama Vs. Orwell



This is what our Nobel Peace Prize Winning President said in front of the UN General Assembly on September 24, 2014 — the same day U.S. military weapons hit some 168 targets including a dozen oil refineries in Syria...
“We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace.”
It's as if Obama is trying to reconcile his peace prize with his legacy of war by arguing that the U.S. is not at a traditional war (because the U.S. is always at war) but just as we go to yet another war, we're actually at a war against war in the name of peace.

So...war is peace. Ever read a book called *1984* by George Orwell?

“Just you wait; I'm coming” president Maduro tells US main newspapers

Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro has said he will travel to New York this week for his debut appearance as president at the United Nations General Assembly despite “racist” editorials against him in major US newspapers.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's trip to Washington was actually a waste of time. His meeting with US counterpart Barack Obama did not go as expected.

During the NATO summit in Wales, the head of the White House took the side of Kiev in talking about a possibility of adopting a special status for Ukraine as an ally outside the North Atlantic Alliance. However, this has not been confirmed, despite the active position of the Ukrainian diaspora in the United States.

Isis Bombshell Exposed



ISIS is acronym for the Official Israeli Mossad Intelligence: Israeli Secret Intelligence Service

The jews zionists are yet behind another terrorism plot to sell to the american public for their greater israel agenda of genocide, using jewish pro-zionist actors to pawn off as muslim terrorist leaders.


Critical Note: The commentator speaks consequently about 'the jews' in this video. This is a misconception!!! Please change the word 'Jews' into 'Zionists'. The religious Jews are not the real problem, the political and capitalist Zionists are indeed.

Zionism is also not especially related to the Ashkenazim jews because there are some millions of Ashkenazim and other jews who rejects zionism. From the 13.7 million religious jews worldwide and besides the unkown number of the non-organized anti-zionist jews, an estimated 1.5-2 million jews are organized in several anti-zionist organisations like Neturei Karta, IJAN and more.

De primaire oorzaak van kanker, celademhaling

Er zijn miljarden euro´s naar kankeronderzoek gegaan. Voornamelijk naar de secundaire oorzaken. De primaire oorzaak van kanker wordt vergeten. Sinds 1925 is deze primaire oorzaak van alle kankers in duizenden experimenten aangetoond: een verstoorde celademhaling waardoor glycolyse ontstaat. Daarbij is de hoge inname van koolhydraten en het tekort aan onbewerkte basisvetten direct de aanleiding voor dit zuurstoftekort.

Dit blijkt tevens de oorzaak van vele chronische en dodelijke ziekten te zijn. Het is vaak in oncologische vakbladen geschreven. Ondanks dit feit zijn maar heel weinig medici, laat staan gewone mensen, op de hoogte. Onlangs werd wederom een bevestigend onderzoek gepubliceerd. Lees meer.
