Science Confirms that Nearly Half of the Human Body is Made of Intergalactic Stardust

Buck Rogers, Staff Writer
Waking Times

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” ~Carl Sagan, Star Stuff

Have you ever felt as though some part of you was not from our galaxy, that somehow you had a physical connection with the cosmos?

A dramatic new study into the origins of galaxies simulated the process by which galaxies are formed and when stars within them explode. The finding offer strong evidence that nearly half of the atoms found in the Milky Way are made from residual particles ejected when far away galaxies go supernova and explode. This includes half of the atoms that make up the human body.

5 Foods with the Same Beneficial Cannabinoids as Found in Cannabis - Waking Times

Anna Hunt, Staff Writer
Waking Times

You can still benefit from the same cannabinoids that give the cannabis plant its medicinal properties, without consuming cannabis. There are several foods rich in cannabinoids that benefit the body’s endocannabinoid system. This system is responsible for helping the body maintain internal balance, also called homeostasis.

Foods that support the function of the endocannabinoid system are pivotal to overall health and well-being. Here are five foods that contain healing cannabinoids and offer therapeutic benefits similar to cannabis.

1. Black Pepper – Piper nigrum

Canadian Study Gives More Evidence Cancer is a Lifestyle Disease Largely Caused by Food - Waking Times

Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Shockingly, worldwide cancer rates are predicted to rise even further, and that by the year 2020, 1-in-2 women and 1-in-3 men will be diagnosed with some form of cancer. It is so common already, in fact, that it getting cancer is more common than getting married or having a first baby.

The cancer industrial complex is negligent in warning people who chemotherapy is now known to actually make some cancers spread and make some tumors more aggressive. Government and its myriad regulatory agencies work diligently to prevent access to natural or alternative cancer treatments, and doctors and the mainstream media give the impression that the causes of cancer are a mystery.

What 5 Great Spiritual Leaders Have to Say About the Deadly Sickness of Loneliness

Dylan Charles, Editor
Waking Times

Loneliness, when accepted, becomes a gift that will lead us to find a purpose in life. ~Paulo Coelho

Loneliness is the illness of our time. Even medical research is warning us that it may be a bigger health risk than smoking or obesity. A stark warning which oddly contradicts the perception of cultural advancement in a technology driven world. After all, we can communicate with far more people and in far more ways than ever before, and we’re connected twenty-four seven. Yet we can still feel desperately alone when together with others in a crowd of people.

Technological communication and connection isn’t giving us what we need. Something is missing. We’re overlooking something critical to the human experience, and loneliness has become the dark plague that torments the human soul.

Artificial Sweeteners Again Linked to Weight Gain, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure - Waking Times

Phillip Schneider, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Artificial sweeteners are promoted as a healthy way to cut down on sugar and lose weight. Common sweeteners such as aspartame, saccharin, and sucralose are used in “diet” products as a way to market toward those who wish to cut down on calories. However, new research is showing us that these artificial sugar substitutes are not as healthy as big food brands would like us to believe. According to new research from the Canadian Medical Association Journal, they are actually linked to weight gain, not loss.

Consumption of nonnutritive sweeteners was associated with increases in weight and waist circumference, and higher incidence of obesity, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular events. – Meghan B. Azad, PhD

Cerberus Capital - The Diabolical Purveyors of Cheap Food and Expensive Pharmaceuticals - Waking Times

Cameron S. Bigger, Contributor
Waking Times

What if I told you the people creating, pricing and selling us our groceries are the same people in-charge of researching, developing, dispensing, and promoting our most popular prescription medications?

Is it just bad luck or coincidence that in 2017 an American has a heart attack every single 34 seconds, while another has a stroke every 40 seconds? Is it just dumb-luck that over 37.7% of the U.S. population is currently obese, while 34% of the U.S. population has high blood pressure, with over 23.4 million Americans now suffering from diabetes?

Well, these are most likely not coincidences, as the heart disease sector of the U.S. healthcare market is already extremely lucrative—raking in over $318 billion in 2016—while currently rapidly expanding into the global marketplace. In fact, worldwide in 2010, the estimated cost of cardiovascular disease was $863 billion, and it’s estimated to rise to $1044 billion by 2030.

With numbers of this magnitude, it shouldn’t take long to understand why a group of greedy investors might want a piece of this tremendous growth. So badly, that it might even outweigh their moral burdens pertaining to how many people would have to die for them to do so.

Let me explain how this ingenious deception works.

Unleashing Your Unique Talents and Gifts in Service of a World in Need

Caroline Ryan, Contributor
Waking Times 

So you have probably noticed things aren’t going so well on planet earth right now. Nothing and no-one remains untouched by our unprecedented global upheaval as it’s impact takes its toll on our feelings, thoughts, perspectives and experiences and much else besides.

It’s unequivocally all change and unfortunately, the destructive type.

When you unleash a Phoenix however, it’s natural that its devastation precedes any subsequent resurrection and that, I would propose, is the true reason behind the wholesale worldly chaos we’re all experiencing right now.

Imagine, however, the potential: all the planetary possibilities that could arise from said destruction, if we individually and collectively choose to step up and instigate a better way.

10 Secrets About America that Will Make You Wonder Where All the Freedom Went

Isaac Davis, Staff Writer
Waking Times

It’s no secret the definition of ‘freedom’ in America has changed a great deal in recent decades. While 9/11 was a major turning point, setting in motion a slew of changes to the American mindset and to the legal framework which governs the contract between the State and the people, our natural rights have been under assault for generations.

Couple this with the dumbing down of the American citizenry, and ‘We the People’ simply no longer know or understand our rights. The fallout of this being we no longer protest or even notice when evermore egregious violations occur.

Where has all the freedom gone?

The following 10 secret truths about America are critical in understanding the state of the state today.

1.) The United States is one of only two countries in the world which taxes nonresident citizens for income earned elsewhere. If you reside in another country, as millions of U.S. citizens do, you’ll have to pay income taxes to two nations, or face prosecution by the IRS.

What the Beef Industry Does to Bring You Cheap Burgers

Michael Parkes, Staff Writer
Waking Times

We all know something is not quite right with our food system when organizations can sell burgers for under 2 bucks. Whether it is euros, dollars or pounds the idea that the cows grow to produce these beef burgers is reduced to a value only, means nutrition, sustainability and systemic wellness have all gone out the window.

Take a moment to watch this Vice feature on the beef industry, and you’ll get the message that the priority of this industry is to produce the cheapest cow patties as possible. Involved here are not just global corporations (even though they may be the driving forces), but also governments, food associations, and academic institutions, which work together to validate the force feeding of animals for human food.

Beef has been rolled out across the emerging world as foundational part of the diets of the everyday man, women and child. Now the research is pointing to the issues of how making beef available on such a scale is having not only on the environment, but also we humans who are meant to be nourished by its consumption. So the challenge now, if one chooses to enjoy a steak or homemade burger, is to identify where the beef has come from and what has the cow been fed?
