Monday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Contemplate Memorial Day!
The surprisingly partisan history of Memorial Day This week marks the 150th anniversary of Memorial Day, but even those who stopped to remember the fallen may be surprised by the fascinating history of the occasion. “It was partisan. It was divisive. It was a long time before the country celebrated as one and that really took until 100 years ago – and World War I,” historian and bestselling author Kenneth C. Davis said on “CBS This Morning” Monday. Memorial Day, which was first called Decoration Day for the flowers placed on the graves of fallen soldiers, began in 1868. But even that date is disputed. “Some towns say they were doing it earlier than 1868. But this year, 1868, was important because a former Union general, a very prominent man named John Logan, said we should do this on May 30, 1868,” Davis explained. An important point to remember, according to Davis, is that Logan was strictly referring to Union soldiers when he made the proclamation.
The Shocking Health Effects Of Agent Orange Now A Legacy Of Military Death While honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice during war, Memorial Day also presents an opportunity for Americans to reflect upon the loss of life because of war. Memorial Day (unlike Veteran’s Day which honors those who served) pays tribute to those who died on the battlefield for our country. Sadly though, as time goes by we are finding that those who made it home oftentimes brought the deadly echoes of war home with them. This is particularly true for soldiers of the Vietnam War. And, the repercussions of war-time actions in Vietnam are still being felt, more than four decades later, as the decedents of those brave men and women battle health issues related to a frightening ghost of their ancestor’s past: Agent Orange. The Vietnam Memorial lists the names of more than 58,000 Americans who died overseas. However, the wall does not document any names of the estimated 2.8 million U.S. vets who were exposed to the poisonous chemical while serving and later died.
Special Guest – Roger Martin!
In March of 2013, the HeroGrown journey began with an informal gift of a few bags of cannabis to a handful of Colorado veterans. Five years later, we’ve given away over $2,000,000 worth of cannabis to American Heroes. Our founder, Roger Martin — a proud U.S. Army veteran and former law enforcement officer — reluctantly tried cannabis to overcome a 10-year dependency on dangerous opioids prescribed for chronic pain. Despite his initial reservations about cannabis, Roger used edibles to detox from opioids in 2010. And in 2013, he devoted his newfound lease on life to sharing the gift of cannabis with his millions of fellow veterans suffering from PTSD, pain, and addiction. In 2014, Grow for Vets was officially launched and held the world’s first veteran cannabis giveaway in Denver, Colorado.
The journey hasn’t been easy. In 2015, Roger’s vision for Grow for Vets expanded from holding local giveaways to helping ten’s of thousands of veterans across the nation. The legal status of cannabis, illegal federally and varying widely state-to-state, presented logistical speed bumps at every turn. Since cannabis can’t cross state-lines, Grow for Vets expanded into state chapters charged with distributing cannabis to local members. Unfortunately, due to the difficultly of finding leaders sharing Roger’s devotion to the mission, the chapter model was not sustainable. After several cases of theft and fraud, the decision was made to close all state chapters in favor of a nationwide CBD shipment program.
We’ve developed thousands of wonderful friendships and picked up our share of “haters” along the way. When he set out on his humble mission to share cannabis with veterans, Roger couldn’t have predicted the challenges he would face. From pharmaceutical companies getting rich killing Americans, to individuals more interested in getting high than in helping their brothers and sisters.
To this day, some opposed to our mission continue their attempts to discredit us — even stooping so low as to claim that Roger never served in the military. These attacks have only strengthened our resolve — we are winning the fight to change the status quo, and soon we will end the war on veterans and first responders who choose cannabis as a safe alternative to the deadly prescription drugs killing more than fifty heroes a day.
PTSD & Pot: Veterans making Memorial Day push for legal marijuana Veterans from across the country will be gathering in our nation’s capital on Memorial Day this year to not only honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice, but to advocate for a cause that isn’t typically associated with our nation’s heroes — the legalization of marijuana. The veterans and advocates taking part in the Memorial Day Veterans Rally DC hope to change the stigma that surrounds cannabis, the preferred term for marijuana among advocates, by arguing that this alternative medicine is already helping some vets treat issues like PTSD, chronic pain and depression — all without the use of dangerous & addictive prescription drugs like opioids. One of their rallying cries is “plants over pills,” and they’re not just coming from the usual legal pot hot-spots like Colorado. The speakers are traveling from places as far west as Alaska, as far south as Texas, and as far north as New England to support the cause, and to share their stories of how legal marijuana helped ease their pain, alleviate symptoms of PTSD, and even get back into the workforce. Among those scheduled to speak are one of the first responders to the 2009 Fort Hood shooting, the mother of a 24-year-old Marine who took his own life after battling PTSD, and the owner of a veteran-operated cannabis company dedicated to “medical cannabis for military veterans.”
Did You See The Future Coming Back Then?
8 Times Science Fiction Movies Predicted The Future Just like Jules Verne conceptualising the submarine, science fiction movies also came up with some pretty impressive predictions for the future. How did Stanley Kubrick know about computer tablets or how did Robert Zemeckis know about VR? It seems that the limit to human invention is our own imagination. Here, we present 8 times science-fiction movies predicted the future in some very stylish way that we can only get up and applaud. What do you think? What science-fiction movies of the present will come to be in the future? I hope not the “Avengers: Infinity War“!
Hour 2 – Advanced Medicine with Dr. Rashid Buttar!
Dr. Buttar is back to talk about what’s happening in the world of health news. Here’s what we have in store for you today:
Vaccinated versus Unvaccinated Study of Mice Links Hepatitis B Vaccine to Autism Sun Yat-sen University’s (a Top 10 university in China) Dr. Zhibin Yao is not a household name in the American autism community, but perhaps he should be. Not only is he American-educated (University of Pittsburgh) and the author of 33 peer-reviewed studies, but he’s also the lead author of two of the most important biological studies ever done analyzing how, exactly, a vaccine can cause autism. n 2015, Dr. Yao was the lead author of “Neonatal vaccination with bacillus Calmette–Guérin and hepatitis B vaccines modulates hippocampal synaptic plasticity in rats,” the first study that ever looked at the impact ANY vaccine might have on the brains of rats. I discussed this study in detail in an extensive article I wrote in April titled, “International scientists have found autism’s cause. What will Americans do?.”
Aluminum Vaccine Adjuvants Linked to Autism Behavior in Mice Study Vaccine Nazis and Big Pharma arehaving a bad science year. As more and more non-industry-funded studies are conducted regarding the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, Big Pharma and its storm troopers are proven more and more to have been bullying and propagandizing the general public to inject harmful and largely useless substances into their bodies for decades. Recently, I wrote an article regarding a study that was conducted in 2016 demonstrating that aluminum adjuvants in vaccines caused neuroinflammation and autoimmune reactions as well as subsequent behavioral changes in mice. Now, however, a study conducted in April, 2018 entitled “Is exposure to aluminium adjuvants associated with social impairments in mice? A pilot study,” and published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, has demonstrated a link between aluminum adjuvants and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Most popular vitamin and mineral supplements provide no health benefit, study finds The most commonly consumed vitamin and mineral supplements provide no consistent health benefit or harm, suggests a new study led by researchers at St. Michael’s Hospital and the University of Toronto. Published today in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, the systematic review of existing data and single randomized control trials published in English from January 2012 to October 2017 found that multivitamins, vitamin D, calcium and vitamin C—the most common supplements—showed no advantage or added risk in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, heart attack, stroke or premature death. Generally, vitamin and mineral supplements are taken to add to nutrients that are found in food. “We were surprised to find so few positive effects of the most common supplements that people consume,” said Dr. David Jenkins, the study’s lead author. “Our review found that if you want to use multivitamins, vitamin D, calcium or vitamin C, it does no harm—but there is no apparent advantage either.”
