A recent study from University of Canterbury in New Zealand shows that glyphosate (Roundup) and other commonly used herbicides can make bacteria quickly adapt and resist antibiotics like ampicillin and tetracycline. Glyphosate, 2,4-D (dioxin) and dicamba (recently approved by the FDA) appear to disable the antibiotics and trigger bacterial resistance to them.
Researchers tested E. coli and Salmonella, two of the most deadly and widespread bacteria in the world, and consistently replicated their results
The dosage required to induce antibiotic resistance was small, comparable to the concentration found in household use or agriculture, but higher than the concentration of incidental residue found in food. However researchers cautioned that people could easily reach this threshold by consuming large quantities of food with small amounts of residue, through children and pets exposed to weed killers used on lawns or via livestock pastured in spray drift zones.
Growing antibiotic resistance is already increasing…

2014 Clinton Foundation tax return. They took in $177 million, donated $5 million, spent $86 million doing it, and kept the $86 million change
The truth about the Clinton foundations
‘Before reading this, find a big, strong clothespin. Check that. Find a large steel industrial clamp. Clamp both nostrils shut before you begin reading, as a stench is going to fill the room the likes of which you have never experienced before and will never want to experience.
I’m not an accountant, but how the hell do you receive $177 million in contributions and spend $86 million in expenses to donate a measly $5 million in actual charity donations? The uber-corrupt Clinton Foundation managed to that in 2014. And they kept the $86 million change! WTF!?
From Thomas Ventimiglia
This should be investigated: Spent $86 million in salaries and expense to donate $5.1 million.
Read it again!
And when she didn’t win, the donations completely stopped and they closed the business.’

New information on Polio Cure
Smoke, Mirrors and the Disappearance of Polio
Dr Suzanne Humphries (2011)
In this presentation, board certified nephrologist Dr Suzanne Humphries traces the real reasons for the decline of poliomyelitis (aka infantile paralysis) in the US. She begins by describing the natural course of polio virus infection. Ninety-five percent of infected patients have no symptoms whatsoever, 4% have fever, headache and flu-like symptoms and 1% develop poliomyelitis (paralysis). The reason paralysis develops is because a defect in cell mediated immunity (CMI)* allows the virus to enter the central nervous system.
Humphries has spent years tracking down toxic environmental exposures known to impede cell mediated immunity. She has identified four that closely correlate with increased rates of polio infection in the 1940s and 1950s.
The first was increased use of infant formula contaminated with high levels of DDT and arsenic (in the forties and fifties, dairy cows were heavily treated with…

Proper storage of your harvest is essential
Proper storage of fruits and vegetables will insure you get the most usage from your garden and orchard crops.
Hint: Always remove any tight bands from your vegetables or at least loosen them to allow them to breathe.
Artichokes – Place in an airtight container sealed, with light moisture.
Asparagus – Place them loosely in a glass or bowl upright with water at room temperature. (Will keep for a week outside the fridge)
Avocados – Place in a paper bag at room temp. To speed up their ripening, place an apple in the bag with them.
Arugula – Like lettuce, should not stay wet! Dunk in cold water and spin or lay flat to dry. Place dry arugula in an open container, wrapped with a dry towel to absorb any extra moisture.
Basil – Is difficult to store well. Basil does not like the cold, or to be wet for…

I made lard for the first time last fall. We bought our yearly half a pig and saved the fat and rendered it in to Lard. I am hooked on cooking and baking with Lard. It was easy and inexpensive to make. Lactose free butter is very expensive here. I think it will be worth trying to make home made butter with this recipe. I will let you know later how it turned out.
Pumpkin Puree is not available in Sweden. I have been searching on the web how to make it for years. I am lactose intolerant, which makes it difficult to make pumpkin pie, because the recipe requires evaporated milk. I have found a recipe to make evaporated milk with lactose free milk, which I will post later. I can’t wait to try this.
