THE CORONA VIRUS VS SO-CALLED CONSPIRACY THEORY

This is probably the first time in history that a pandemic has caused so much widespread conflicting theories and remedies based largely on guess work, spewing from all corners of the world. This verbal diarrhea and the ensuing confusion, fear and hysteria, were further driven by videos coming from all corners of the earth through social media, which played no small part in bringing many to the brink of anxiety attacks. The world should know by now that the Coronavirus which was alleged to have started in a “wet market” in Wuhan, China, actually came from a laboratory testing that the United States government has been funding for years, and though at the outset America played ignorance and denial, there is undeniable evidence that at least two former presidents stressed the importance of preparation for a pandemic. One cannot help but wonder if their knowledge of the experiments spurred their fears. Now that the world has gone into a tailspin, medical professionals and even government officials are inching their way forward with the truth. Yes, American tax payers’ money has been funding these experiments at The Wuhan Institute of Virology, confirmed Senator Ted Cruz, and this, according to him, was not just involving one lab in Wuhan, but two, within close proximity. He further stated that the US administration was concerned about the safety of the labs. These experiments were being conducted to study viral diversities in bat’s reservoirs, and the laboratory experiments were being conducted to determine which new

SYNOPSIS OF A PHENOMENAL WOMAN – JAMAICA’S DR. ANNETTE RILEY

In my time of solitude I often reflect on my life from my simple abode in Rose’s Valley, a small rural district in St. Elizabeth, to where I am today. My beginning mirrors the life of young, innocent, happy children, so unaware of the trappings that they do not have. My parents, Laura and Headley Mitchell were two very humble people. Although both had no secondary education, they were both brilliant. My father was a farmer and my mother a housewife. She later developed the skill to become the district midwife and continues to boast of the number of babies that she delivered. She helped us with all our homework, regardless of the subject area. She helped me to write the compositions that were recognized for excellence. To this day I still stand in awe of the wealth of knowledge that she possesses. My father read many books and he would always have us read the Bible to him at night. I was told that he followed the teaching of Haile Selassie and even wore dreadlocks at one time. He was a great father and provided for us. He did not believe in corporal punishment and I can still hear him saying to my mother, “Laura, never hit the children when you are angry.” My dad died on November 28th, 1966. It was a dark day for me as I watched him die at home. My father was never sick. He was only ill for one day and that was

Antioxidants: Finding Ways for Health Protection

Antioxidants: Finding Ways for Health Protection

Antioxidants have become so popular that it’s one of the new buzzwords today. Take careful note of food labels in grocery stores because colorful fruits and vegetables are packed with them, even cosmetics – skin care, hair care are now on the bandwagon singing its praises. Hallelujah! In an article From the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) the grant review panelist; Dr. A. N. Tony Kong talks about his most recent findings. He wanted to know how antioxidants in plant foods affect genes that turn the cancer process on and off. He said, “It’s a balancing act. A little inflammation reaction in a healthy immune system is a good thing, but too much is harmful. Too much oxidative stress and too few antioxidant vitamins like C, D and E, along with not consuming enough phytochemicals – like sulforaphane in broccoli, EGCG in green tea and dozens more in all kinds of plant foods, leads to ill health.” How does this happen? It has to do with the way our immune system responds to infections by fighting the virus or bacteria that is causing them. The site that is inflamed is where the battle is fought. The longer the inflammation persists, the likelihood of increased risk for certain cancers. Some cancers cited are liver cancer and the risk increases, due to having hepatitis or H. pylori, the bacteria that is responsible for stomach ulcers or in extreme cases, stomach cancer. Inflammatory bowel disease can increase the risk for colon cancer also. Versatility of
