Westford Farmers Market to Return to Town Common This Spring

After a year’s hiatus, Westford’s farmers market will return in the spring, organized by a new market manager and overseen by the Agricultural Commission.

The market will return to the town Common on Tuesday afternoons, but it will likely run for only eight weeks, starting in July and ending in late August. The original market, coordinated by manager Gloria Tu Gilbert, began in June each year, and ended in October.

This Is U.S.: Just 12 Percent of American Adults Are Metabolically Healthy, Study Finds

12/1/18, Ben Renner, Chapel Hill, NC

The prevalence of what doctors consider good metabolic health is shockingly low in American adults, a new study finds. Researchers from the University of North Carolina’s Gillings School of Global Public Health say that just 12 percent of the country’s adult population is considered metabolically healthy. That means a vast portion of the population is at greater risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, or other dangerous health conditions over time.

Government Study Finds ‘Clear Evidence’ for Heart Tumors From Cellphone Radiation

11/14/18 by Dr. Joseph Mercola

Cellphones were classified as a Group 2B “possible carcinogen”1 in 2011 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), an arm of the World Health Organization and the global gold standard for the classification of toxins.

This classification was based on evidence showing that nonionizing electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation from cellphones can trigger abnormal cell growth and tumors.2,3 In my view, this is a mistake and, just like smoking, I am confident it will be recategorized in the future to a 1A carcinogen.

Earlier this year, preliminary findings of two government-funded animal studies4 were published that further support the notion that cellphone radiation has carcinogenic potential.

When Autism Grows Up

August 4, 2018
When we were told that there was some behavior problems that he had and he might be autistic, I never felt that he was going to be someone that couldn’t grow and be on his own. I’m a bagger. I bag groceries for customers. Sometimes I help take them out to the car. I was hoping they’d give me more stuff to do… like stock shelves, cause you could get paid more. I wrote a letter to ask if they have any new positions open, but I didn’t get any, so it’s a disappointment. 

The Dark Side of LED Lightbulbs

by Scientific American

A study published in late 2010 in the journal Environmental Science and Technology found that LEDs contain lead, arsenic and a dozen other potentially dangerous substances. LEDs are touted as the next generation of lighting,” says Oladele Ogunseitan, one of the researchers behind the study and chair of the University of California (UC)-Irvine’s Department of Population Health & Disease Prevention. “But as we try to find better products that do not deplete energy resources or contribute to global warming, we have to be vigilant [about] toxicity hazards….” Read complete article here.

Fluoridation is mass medication, NZ Supreme Court rules

Water fluoridation is compulsory mass medication, in breach of human rights, the Supreme Court has ruled by a majority vote. It confirmed that fluoridation is a medical treatment as claimed by opponents for over 60 years. It is not a supplement “just topping up natural levels”, as claimed by the Ministry of Health.

Fluoridation on Trial

Rutland Herald | May 21, 2018

Largely unseen, a lawsuit that aims to outlaw public water fluoridation is moving forward in the federal District Court of Northern California. In earthquake-prone California, this suit could eventually shake a pillar of U.S. public health policy.Hundreds of studies showing fluoride’s detrimental effects on the human brain constitute the heart of the lawsuit. They are like the tremors that foreshadow a future quake, signs that a bigger shift is coming. Amid these clear warning signs of a flawed policy with large impacts, the news media are largely silent. Meanwhile, virtually every American ingests fluoride via the water supply or foods prepared with fluoridated water.What constitutes the “critical mass” for a news story worthy of national attention? Presumably it is the heft of newsworthiness weighed on the scale of editorial judgment. Why, then, does the amply documented evidence of public water fluoridation’s adverse effects come up light on the editorial scale? What prevents it from being the ongoing story of lackadaisical science and violation of the public trust that it has been for nearly 70 years?The suit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency seeks to establish that the fluoridation of public water supplies poses an unacceptable risk.

Westford Farmers Market Closes

“It is with great sadness that the Board of Directors of Sustainable Westford announces that we will not be producing the Westford Farmers Market this upcoming season.  After running the Farmers Market for 12 successful years, it has become increasingly difficult to produce a high quality, sustainable market with the vendors and services that will attract a large enough customer base to keep the market viable. This is a very difficult decision for us because we love the Farmers Market and all that it represents – locally produced foods and crafts, children playing and laughing on the Town Common, the education about sustainability and the friendships and sense of community.   While we are fortunate to have fresh, organic local food available at supermarkets in Westford, it is difficult to run a successful farmers market when many of the products our market offered are also available 7 days a week just down the street.  Going forward, we will be re-focusing our energies on the areas that we believe can bring the biggest benefit in sustainability to our community – the Healthy Kids Coalition Rainbow Snack Program, UpCycleIt!, Community Composting and community educational programs.  We invite you to join us as we continue the hard work that needs to be done to move the needle on sustainability.”

Western Dental Care Does Not Address the Cause of Your Tooth Problems…

Excerpt: “The oral cavity functions as a type of billboard in displaying the health of the body at large, it’s important to remember. If a person is suffering from constant bleeding gums or gingivitis, for instance, this likely suggests that he or she has systemic oxidative stress that needs to be addressed through dietary and lifestyle changes. A high rate of cavities is another indicator that one’s body isn’t healthy – though the average dentist simply isn’t educated in making this connection and informing patients about it.”

The Disappearing Male

The Disappearing Male is about one of the most important, and least publicized, issues facing the human species: the toxic threat to the male reproductive system.

The last few decades have seen steady and dramatic increases in the incidence of boys and young men suffering from genital deformities, low sperm count, sperm abnormalities and testicular cancer.

At the same time, boys are now far more at risk of suffering from ADHD, autism, Tourette’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, and dyslexia.

The Disappearing Male takes a close and disturbing look at what many doctors and researchers now suspect are responsible for many of these problems: a class of common chemicals that are ubiquitous in our world.

Found in everything from shampoo, sunglasses, meat and dairy products, carpet, cosmetics and baby bottles, they are called “hormone mimicking” or “endocrine disrupting” chemicals and they may be starting to damage the most basic building blocks of human development.

Big Gaps in Toxicity Testing for Vaccine Safety

“[T]here are legitimate questions and concerns about the methodology used in standard toxicity testing to arrive at conclusions about safety…. Most standardized tests use three routes of exposure to the substance: inhalation, ingestion and dermal (skin) routes of exposure. Exposure via injection is not part of standard toxicity testing….

The use of standardized endpoint categories poses another problem with toxicity testing. Current testing paradigms are missing sensitive and functional endpoints such as destruction of gut microbiota, autoimmunity, encephalitis, chronic immune and brain dysfunction—all of which are adverse health effects observed in vaccine-injured patients….

Standard toxicity tests technically only assess acute, short-term toxicity of a substance. Although chronic studies examine adverse effects over a slightly longer period of time than sub-chronic and acute studies, a maximum observation period of twelve months is not adequate to be considered a long-term study given that children in the United States are repeatedly exposed to ingredients in vaccines during the first six years of life starting on the day of birth….

[T]here is also a lack of basic scientific research on the synergistic negative effects on the human body when vaccine ingredients interact with each other. In toxicology, synergism refers to the effect caused when exposure to two or more chemicals at as time leads to detrimental health effects that are greater than the sum of the effects of the individual chemicals.”

Tim Boyd Reviews Frankenskies Documentary

“This video is full of history on the subject of attempts to modify weather since at least the 1940s. Fascinating old black-and-white clips show details of Project Cirrus, Project Cumulus, Project Skyfire and Project Skywater—all weather modification projects. Frankenskies also treats us to video footage of Lyndon Johnson talking in some detail about weather control.

There are many more recent clips from CNN, Fox News and other local news reports covering officials who are talking about geoengineering or chemtrails. Skeptics will argue that no such thing is going on or ever has been. The history in this video shows otherwise.”

ANOTHER study confirms the detrimental effects of water fluoridation on the IQs of children

(Natural News) Another study has added to the growing body of evidence that links the fluoride found in water with lowered intelligence quotients (IQ) in children.

A study, which was published last year, confirmed the dangers that water fluoridation has when it is consumed by children, particularly on their IQ. Not only that, fluoridated water was also shown to adversely affect the cognitive ability of babies when this is consumed by their mothers during pregnancy.

13 states suing MA over “The Act To Prevent Cruelty To Farm Animals”

Excerpt from the Westford Patch: “The ballot question overwhelmingly passed with 77.7 percent of the vote. Wendell, Erving, and Colrain – which cast less than 3,000 votes combined – were the only towns in the state to vote against it. Which makes sense: Only one Massachusetts farm, the one in Wendell, would be affected by the law. … It turns out, however, there are many more farms outside of Massachusetts that would essentially either have to change their practice or just not sell their meat to businesses inside the state when the law is implemented.

Why are America’s farmers killing themselves in record numbers?

The suicide rate for farmers is more than double that of veterans. Former farmer Debbie Weingarten gives an insider’s perspective on farm life – and how to help.

Excerpt: John Blaske . . . craves conversation with farmers who know what he’s experiencing. “I would really give about anything to go and talk to people,” he says. “If any one person thinks they are the only one in this boat, they are badly mistaken. It’s like Noah’s Ark. It’s running over.” See the full article at here.

Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs)

“Cellphones are the tip of the radiation iceberg. Powerful Wi-Fi routers in offices, cell towers atop buildings beaming into apartments, and towers in many other places including church steeples, are a threat to the health of those in their paths and especially children and seniors….

Public Discussion on Tap in Mass.

An extensive public discussion of charges that Wi-Fi, cellphones, etc., are dangerous will take place starting Nov. 28 in the Massachusetts Legislature….

The Dept. of Public Health has written public health fact sheets on the man-made electromagnetic fields (EMFs) of radiation emitted by high voltage power lines, cell towers, cell phones and other wireless technology.

They are under final review with DPH Commissioner Monica Bharel’s office at present. Robert Knorr, Ph.D., is Director, Bureau of Environmental Health.
