Rachel Parent is a young Canadian activist and founder of the nonprofit Kids Right To Know organization. She was 14 years old when her activism around labelling genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food caught the eye of pro-GMO corporations and lobby groups.
“According to emails and thousands of other pages of documents released in a freedom of information request by U.S. Right to Know (USRTK), a non-profit advocacy group funded by the Organic Consumers Association, these industry forces conspired to think of ways to discredit Parent and counter her message…
Tal Golesworthy is a boiler engineer — he knows piping and plumbing. When he needed surgery to repair a life-threatening problem with his aorta, he mixed his engineering skills with his doctors’ medical knowledge to design a better repair job.
In July 2015, Tal Golesworthy received one of the first six Patient Innovation Awards at a ceremony in Lisbon, and in November 2015, Mr Golesworthy spoke at the Scottish Completing the Picture in Cumbernauld. The conference is an annual educational symposium for healthcare professionals who use, manage, maintain or purchase medical devices.
This well respected event is a recognised professional development opportunity and helps to improve knowledge and awareness of medical device topics that affect the industry both today and in the future. Read More
Dr Suzanne Humphries is a conventionally educated medical doctor from the USA. She is board certified in Nephrology and specialises in adult internal medicine, nephrology, vaccination and vitamin C treatments. This lecture gives a background of vitamin C, what it is, and why it is more than just a vitamin. Dr Humphries reviews the uses, benefits and practical aspects of vitamin C that everyone should know whether you are a doctor or not.
Dr Humphries provides extensive references in support of her arguments, and answers her detractors with clear evidence that they are wrong.
I am so pleased The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir’s song, ‘A Bridge Over You’, topped the UK singles chart to reach Christmas number one today. All the proceeds from the song are going to health-related charities.
Doctors and nurses, and their colleagues, from this area of London were the first to look after me when I came to England. They were the first people I met in our precious National Health Service.
It’s all to easy to think of the NHS as a system, but in fact, it is a group of remarkably dedicated people, working under incredible pressure, to bring healing, and comfort to millions in the UK, day and night, all year round. Read More
Traditional prosthetics can cost thousands of dollars and need to be replaced as children grow. A group of volunteers is using open-source technology and 3-D printers to provide free prosthetic hands for children and adults who need them. In this short from film-maker Charlie Nordstrom, learn about e-NABLE, the organization behind the idea. Hear from Kieran, a child whose life has been improved by the device, and see the whole process unfold at Autodesk, a creative workshop in San Francisco.
Raymond Wang is only 17 years old, but he’s already helping to build a healthier future. Using fluid dynamics, he created computational simulations of how air moves on aeroplanes, and what he found is disturbing — when a person sneezes on a plane, the airflow actually helps to spread pathogens to other passengers.
Wang shares an unforgettable animation of how a sneeze travels inside a plane cabin as well as his prize-winning solution: a small, fin-shaped device that increases fresh airflow in aeroplanes and redirects pathogen-laden air out of circulation.
Watch Dr Andrew Wakefield discuss the widely controversial topic of vaccine health in his “CDC Whistleblower” presentation at The Leadership And Longevity (November 14th) 2015 Conference.
Please, please, listen carefully as Dr Wakefield clearly states the actual conclusion of The Lancet paper (1998), which has been misrepresented, worldwide, ever since its publication. Furthermore, Dr Wakefield summarises the English High Court’s judgement, upon the General Medical Council’s ruling against one of his colleagues. The court’s judgement was rendered upon the appeal of Professor Walker-Smith’s appeal. Read More
Jack is a fifteen year old freshman in high school. He developed a paper sensor that could detect pancreatic, ovarian and lung cancer in five minutes for as little as 3 cents. He conducted his research at John Hopkins University. This research could change the face of cancer and promote early detection. He has been selected as the Intel 2012 ISEF winner and has won awards at multiple national and international mathematics competitions.
In preliminary tests, Andraka’s invention has shown 100 percent accuracy. It also finds cancers earlier than current methods, costs a mere 3 cents and earned the high school student the 2012 Intel Science Fair grand prize. Read More
Join Howard Straus (author, scientist, son of Charlotte Gerson and grandson of Dr. Max Gerson) for an in-depth examination of the Gerson Therapy — how it works, the science behind it and why it works. Heal Yourself, Heal The World is a new review of the Gerson Therapy and for this retelling of the story, we created an attention-grabbing script and intertwined the best parts from the other films with new interviews, updated scientific information, modern graphics and even media from Dr. Gerson’s time. Heal Yourself, Heal The World includes:
Historical information on Dr. Max Gerson never before presented on film
In-depth explanations from scientists, researchers, and nutritional experts on the science behind the Gerson Therapy
Reports from doctors who use the Gerson Therapy to heal their patients
Personal stories from Gerson patients who healed themselves of cancer and other diseases using the Gerson Therapy And More…
