[MedicalConspiracies] Can Sunshine Be A Natural Cancer Cure for Melanoma, Prostate and Lymph Cancer, or non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma?

Can Sunshine Be A Natural Cancer Cure for Melanoma,
Prostate and Lymph Cancer, or non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma?

Sunshine may indeed be a natural cancer cure according to recent research. After decades of using sun screen, hats and worrying about sunburns, we can relax a little.
Ironically, sun exposure may even be a natural cancer cure adjunct for a variety of cancers, including the feared melanoma, according to findings published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

Good News For Surviving Cancer

New research is showing that sunlight exposure, a major risk factor for the potentially deadly melanoma, may also help victims survive that disease as a natural cancer cure adjunct.
Surprisingly, although increased sun exposure is a risk, it also seems to lead to increased survivability!

According to the study led by Marianne Berwick of the department of internal medicine at the University of New Mexico, who looked at 528 melanoma victims over five years, found that increased sun exposure led to increased survivability.

Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma & Sun

Researchers in Scandinavia also found that increased sun resulted in a lower rate of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, helping as a natural cancer cure.
In this study, a research team led by Karin Ekstrom Smedby of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, studied 3,000 with, and a similar number of people without lymph cancer, in Denmark and Sweden.

To their surprise, they found that increased exposure to ultraviolet radiation through both sunbathing -- and even getting sunburns -- resulted in a reduced incidence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma!

Evidently in the northern latitudes sunshine is important as a natural cancer cure adjunct.

Sunlight Reduces Prostate Cancer Risk

Another study suggests that men exposed to a lot of sunlight may have a lower risk of prostate cancer "because the body manufactures the active form of vitamin D from exposure to sunlight," says Dr. Ester John of the Northern California Cancer Center.
The study, published in the journal Cancer Research, involved 450 white men, and suggests that vitamin D promotes normal growth of prostate cells and inhibits the spread of any cancerous cells beyond the gland.

The protective effect of sunlight did vary, and was strongest for men who had inherited a variation of a gene that helps regulate the body's use of vitamin D.

Researchers are not ready to abandon warnings about the dangers of too much sun, pointing out that there are other sources of vitamin D, but they do suggest that vitamin D should be part of an alternative cancer treatment.

Too Little Sun Causes Harm, Say Specialists

Prostate Cancer has also been related to lack of sunshine, and with less exposure to sun, men in northern latitudes have higher cancer death rates. Researchers have definitely found levels of the “sunshine vitamin D” to be lower in older men, who are most prone to prostate cancer.
A very large study found that men with higher levels of vitamin D in their blood were half as likely to develop aggressive forms of tumors than those with lower amounts.

These findings were presented by Dr. Haojie Li, and involved nearly 15,000 men in the Physicians' Health Study at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. Their research emphasizes the importance of nutrition with cancer treatment, and of naturally healthy lifestyles with moderate sunshine.

Go Outside And Play!

The tendency to keep children out of the sun is also limiting their vitamin D, causing low bone mass.
Surprisingly, today's younger adults may have inadequate stores of this nutrient. In one study involving almost 300 patients of varying ages who were hospitalized for different types of ailments, 57% were found to have low levels of vitamin D.

This insufficiency occurred in a full one-third of the people who were getting the recommended amounts of vitamin D from their diet or supplements.

“When you were little and your mother said, ‘Go outside and play,’ it wasn’t just to get you out of her hair,” a prostate specialist from the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Eric Klein advises, suggesting sunshine to be needed with naturally healthy lifestyles.

Why Sunshine for Breast and Colon Cancer?

Scientists are still trying to figure out what it is exactly about sunshine that is good as part of a natural cancer cure.
New research is showing that vitamin D has more functions than it than was originally thought, and important for the immune system. Vitamin D, they are also saying, helps regulate cell growth and helps cells stop unneeded growth through a process called apoptosis.

Inadequate levels of vitamin D have definitely been associated with breast and colon or colorectal cancer, and vitamin D should definitely be a natural cancer cure adjunct to treatment.

“Tan Ban” Still On -- for Teens and Sun Beds!

There is still a ban on the use of tanning beds for teenager, because research has proven there to be a direct link between the use of sun beds and cancer.
In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned against the use of sun beds. They particularly recommend teenagers avoid sun bed use, because “It is known that young people who get burnt from exposure to ultraviolet will have a greater risk of developing melanoma (the most dangerous form) later in life.”

The reason that sunbeds are harmful, the WHO warns, is that “some sun beds have the capacity to emit levels of ultraviolet (UV) radiation many times stronger than the mid-day summer sun”.

Go Outside - Just Don’t Overdo It!

Doctors are not going to suggest that you go and bake in the sun as a natural cancer cure, but they may soon be recommending 20 minutes a day of sunshine, because we need vitamin D.
Research in Canada revealed that almost half of new mothers and one-third of their babies suffer from vitamin D deficiency. Even sunny Australia is revising its warnings about the risks of sun exposure because of fears about vitamin D deficiency. The reason for this change of heart is that a new problem has emerged in Australia - vitamin D deficiency.

There is a concern about vitamin D deficiency because it increases the risk of a range of diseases from cancer to osteoporosis -- and that vitamin D be used as nutrition with cancer and nutrition with cancer treatments.

The Cancer Council of Australia has said that: "A balance is required between avoiding an increase in risk while achieving enough ultraviolet radiation exposure to achieve adequate vitamin D levels" for naturally healthy lifestyles.

Spelling out exactly what this means, in Sydney and southern parts of Australia, people should expose their unprotected face, hands and arms to the sun for five to 10 minutes before 10 am. And of course, check the UV rating before going out unprotected!

Cheer Up In The Sun!

Intuitively, we know that sunshine cheers us up, and that too little of it is harmful to us. Even cats will find just that little spot of sunshine in the corner of the room and curl up!
Sunlight also triggers the production of endorphins in the brain, those amazing chemical compounds that produce a wonderful feeling of well being!

It has been found to be good for you rather than bad, and a good natural cancer cure adjunct if you have: melanoma, lymph, or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, prostate, breast or colorectal cancer. Also make sure you get enough vitamin D and sunshine, if not as a natural cancer cure, then as part of a naturally healthy lifestyle!

When To Cover Up?

Dermatologists suggest paying attention to the UV index which predicts the strength of the sun's ultra violet rays.
As the index approaches 3, start to cover up -- wear a hat, sunglasses and put on sunscreen.

When the index passes the 6 mark, UV rays have to be taken very seriously -- start planning activities in the shade.

By level 8, take full precautions!

Speeding Recovery With Anti Tumor Nutraceuticals

Many people are successfully speeding their recovery and reducing their side effects by adding a nutraceutical to their diet as a natural cancer cure adjunct.
Doctors prefer that you use a natural cancer cure adjunct that has been clinically tested, such as a nutraceutical that has improves glutathione,(GSH) -- the body’s OWN protective mechanism.

This approach has been found to be especially protective during treatment, by speeding recovery and reducing fears of metastases.

By Dr. Bernarr, D.C. D.D.



Sunbathing helps heal skin cancer and does not cause skin cancer. Sunbathing does not cause wrinkling of the skin. Sunbathing helps heal wrinkles. Unfortunately those who develop skin cancer and/or wrinkles and also coincidentally sunbathe, have many bad habits that cause their skin cancer and wrinkles. Those who have wrinkling of the skin have poor skin tone. This poor skin tone causes the skin to wrinkle.

I have sunbathed nude almost every day, for many, many years, for several hours, and I have never developed skin cancer nor wrinkles.

Sunbathing helped heal the skin cancer of Dr. Harland G. Call. His "skin cancer was diagnosed by two M.D.1s, one of whom was a surgeon who recommended surgical removal". Call employed "sunbathing of the affected area. Within a short time, the skin cancer disappeared," after which he reported back to the M.D. who had recommended surgical removal. When the local M.D. "examined" him, "he confirmed that the skin cancer had disappeared without surgical removal."

A man had recurrent skin cancer. His cancer doctor recommended surgery. The cancerous man rejected undergoing surgery. Dr. John Ott wrote that he advised the man to begin spending time in the sun without his glasses or anything else between his eyes and the sunlight. After 5 months, his skin cancer completely disappeared.

Cancer is helped by sunbathing, writes Dr. Zane R. Kime. Kime writes that those who get more sunlight have less cancer. Sunbathing heals cancer by building up the immune system and increasing the oxygen in the tissues. Sunlight does not cause skin cancer. Healthy people do not get cancer and -unhealthy people do get it. Chronic sunburn combines with free radicals to cause skin cancer. Sunlight may change free radicals, dietary fat, cholesterol and deranged antioxidants via cooked foods into skin cancer. Under the influence of sunlight, these toxic foods are brought to the skin. Cooked foods have had their antioxidants, particularly vitamins C and E, reduced or deranged by cooking. The sources of free radicals are mainly dietary fat, especially polyunsaturated fats, but also fats and oils applied to the skin in suntan lotion and other cosmetics. Suppression of the 'immune system by drugs may be involved in skin cancer that is stimulated by sunlight. X-rays and chemotherapy cause cancer.

"We may be able to reduce our cancer deaths by inducing a partial or complete immunity by exposure of suitable skin areas to sunlight," writes Dr. Frank Apperly.

Exposing U.S. Navy personnel to strong sunlight may have saved them from dying from cancer, writes S. Peller.

Sunlight treatments reduced malignant cancer growths 50% in experimental animals in Russia, writes A.P. Zabaluyeva.

Repeated sunburning, not suntanning in itself, causes skin cancer, writes Dr. Michael Gray. Gray writes that skin cancer is caused in those who smoked tobacco and marijuana and expose themselves to sunlight. Marijuana contains adverse toxins that induce skin cells to mutate in the presence of sunlight, causing skin cancer.

Skin cancer is caused in those who over consume coffee and tea, which contain toxic caffeine and tannic acid, and expose themselves to sunlight, write Dr. Becker and D. Alexander.

Dr. Zane R. Kime writes, "Tuberculosis patients being treated by sunbathing have been observed to have well-developed muscles with very little fat, even though they have not exercised for months."

"The Romans made use of the sun in training their Gladiators, for they knew that sunlight seemed to strengthen and enlarge the muscles."

"A study of the results of combined sunlight an exercise, showed that a group that was getting the sunlight treatments with exercise, had improved almost twice as much as shown by their electrocardiograms, as had those who only exercised, even though both groups were on a general health resort treatment program."


Why winter makes you depressed? Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) hits around 100,000 people and develops into severe depression as daylight decreases in the winter. If SAD sufferers get out and get some sunlight during winter, they will relieve their depression, writes Dr. Keki R. Sidhwa.


Using sunlight instead of light from surgical lamps, healed soldiers undergoing surgery faster during World War II, writes Dr. Carl Hoffminster. Injured soldiers healed and survived much, much better when their open wounds and broken bones were exposed to sunlight.


"Animals who live out their lives in a complete absence of light are commonly blind, even eyeless," writes Harvey Diamond.

"Those who live in dungeons, cellars, prisons, mines, and similar places denied sunlight, grow weak, pale and sick. The eyeless -5- fish of sunless caves constitute but one example of the baneful influence of the denial of sunlight. Mules kept in mines also become blind. Horses kept in dark stables and denied sunlight become blind. Darkness is better for sleep, light for waking activities," wrote Dr. Herbert Shelton.


"Gazing directly into the sun actually improves sight and aids in overcoming disease,," wrote Dr. Herbert Shelton.

WITHOUT SUNLIGHT YOU WILL DIE"Without sunshine, there would be no life possible on earth," writes Dr. Edwin Flatto. The sun provides the basis for all life on earth.

The sun is the source of energy for all plants, and indirectly, for all animals. Sunlight purifies water, air and the surfaces of objects.

"Shut up the strongest man in a dark dungeon, and he becomes pale like a corpse, his blood loses its vitality, and he is liable to scrofulous disease. He loses the power of resisting disease influences," wrote Dr. Thomas Low Nichols.

"Take away the sunlight and all life on earth would soon perish. Deprived of sunlight, man loses physical vigor and strength and will develop a disinclination for activity," wrote Dr. Herbert Shelton. Shelton wrote that the "jailbird" who has been locked in his cell for sometime with a lack of sunlight, is in line for disease and will waste away.

Feed two animals the same diet but keep one in a dark closet and allow the other to be out in the sunshine. The animal that's kept in the closet will be weak, stunted and die prematurely.


Eyeglasses and contact lenses rob you of energy by blocking some of the ultra violet rays that travel through the eyes to the pineal gland, writes Patricia McCormac.

After discontinuing wearing his eyeglasses, Dr. John Ott writes that he exposed his eyes to the sunlight without lenses. His vision was much improved. He recommended similar therapy to his friends and they received similar improvement in their vision. Ott writes that nothing should block out the full spectrum of sunlight, no glasses of any kind to block the ultra violet rays, and especially, no dark glasses.

Sunglasses block healing ultra-violet light and thus contribute to the increased incidence of blindness and eye disease in this country, writes Dr. Jacob Liberman.

Suntan lotions should not be used because they can cause cancer, writes Dr. Zane R. Kime.

"Artificial sun-lamps can do irreparable damage. None of the lamps, regardless of the price, contain more than a few of the rays found in the sun. The ultra-violet rays, because of their short length in artificial lamps, can be very harmful," writes Dr. William Esser.

Sunscreen may actually increase the risk of cancer, so proposed California researchers in a paper published in January, 1993, in the Annals of Epidemiology. The researchers contended that UVB- blocking sunscreens had contributed to increasing skin-cancer rates, by disabling the body's natural alarm mechanism: sunburn. The researchers also posited that because UVB rays are the main source of vitamin D, and because vitamin D may inhibit the progression of melanoma, and because sunscreens block UVB rays- sunscreens might promote vitamin D deficiencies and cause melanomas. (UVB is the shorter wavelength of ultraviolet light that damages the skin. UVA is the longer of the two types of ultraviolet light that reaches the earth. UVA is responsible for tanning.)

In a study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in January,1993, researchers from the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center applied three common types of sunscreen to mice and then exposed most of them to sunlamps twice a week for three weeks. Melanoma cells were then injected into all the mice. The mice exposed to the ultraviolet (UV) rays, even if they were treated with sunscreen, had a higher incidence of melanoma than those not exposed to UV rays. The researchers theorized that sunscreens may allow enough UV to penetrate the skin to suppress the immune response and/or damage DNA, thus allowing tumors to develop.

UVA can cause skin cancer, particularly melanoma, according to the Texas researchers. The sunscreens used in the mouse study blocked little or no UVA.

Tanning pills are unsafe, writes Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports write that Canthaxanthin, a dye, used in tanning pills, builds up in the retina and liver, causes skin reactions and itching, and leads to a type of hepatitis.

If we choose to expose our nude skins to the sunshine, all we need do is pay attention to our bodies. Our bodies are always talking to us and we must learn to listen. If the sunshine is going to be harmful to us, our bodies will feel uncomfortable in the sunshine. This will force us to withdraw our bodies from the sunshine before the sunshine can injure us. DON'T BLOCK THE SUN OR YOU MAY DEVELOP CANCER BY REDUCING VITAMIN D ABSORPTION

Anything that blocks sunshine from penetrating the skin will reduce the amount of vitamin D that the body makes.

People with lower levels of activated vitamin D are at greater risk for colon cancer, writes the Lancet.

Vitamin D "in man, absorption is through the skin," by the influence of sunlight, writes Dr. Viviana Virginia Vetrano.


"Sun-baths must, of course, be taken in the nude because clothing prevents passage of the sun's rays to the body and the result is only heat and sweat," writes Dr. William Esser.

"A full sunbath in the nude is ideal. This is not a mere cosmetic measure, but a health requirement for greatest value," wrote Dr. Herbert Shelton.

"Wild animal life spends the cool portions of the day in the sun and seeks the shade and rest when it is hottest," wrote Dr. Shelton.

"Absorb the sun's rays during the early morning or just before sunset, when the sun's rays are slanting, and when your shadow is longer than you are," writes Dr. Edwin Flatto.

"Rooms which are poorly ventilated, into which the sunshine is not permitted to shine and which are damp and not dried by your home heating system are destructive of both life and health," writes Rise Rafferty. Rafferty also writes, shutters and heavy curtains block the life-giving rays of sunlight from the chamber. This should not be so.

A sunny exposure, plenty of large windows, and no blinds or curtains, wrote Dr. Thomas Low Nichols.


Unfortunately we are forced in our "un-civilization to constantly keep covered with tight, restrictive garments and undergarments, brassieres, panties, underpants,& bathing suits, our breasts, prostates, reproductive organs and colons.

"No skin can be maintained in any thing like a clean condition if it 'does not come in contact with the sun and air," wrote Dr. -8- Herbert Shelton.

Shelton also wrote "Complete organs may be removed from the body, not only the arms and legs, but some of the internal organs, and life will continue as before, but if the function of the skin is suspended for only a few minutes, death is the result" ... "The resistant powers of Elie-normal skin counteracts in a marvelous way those changes of temperature to which the body is so frequently subjected.

The skin weakened by clothing is unable to do this very effectively." "The skin that has become weakened by clothing serves as a less effective barrier to infectious matter from the outside."

"Man also breathes through his skin and it is vitally necessary that a constant supply of fresh pure air reach the skin if it is to carry on its respiratory function normally. A healthy skin is essential to normal health and can be had only by giving it the advantage of those agencies which are intended by nature to come in contact with and affect the skin."

"Anyone who ever had his feet to sweat knows how disagreeable is the odor that exudes from them when his or her shoes are removed. Every one is acquainted with the fact that the feet of the 'bare foot boy with cheeks of tan' may sweat the whole day through without producing such a condition. Why the difference? It is because the sun and air disintegrate and carry away the excretions from the skin of the feet. If they are tightly sealed up in those leather sweat boxes called shoes they are not only denied the benefits of light and air but are forced to remain in their own filthy exudations. Someday man will substitute the sun and air bath for the present water bath."

"The manual laborer goes to work on a hot summer day and sweats profusely throughout the day. His clothes become saturated with sweat. It gives off a very disagreeable odor. The hands and face which have been exposed to the sun and air do not give off such an odor. If one examines he finds the space between the man's body and his clothes occupied by foul hot air and gases which are very repugnant to the olfactory sense. The man is literally wallowing in his own excretions, he has them bound to him by his clothing so that they escape slowly. This is filthy. This same thing is true of every one who wears clothes whether they are 'high collared' financiers or just plain folks. It is not true of those who work without clothing. This condition caused by the clothing weakens the skin. In many cases it is almost dead."

"Man's resistance to atmospheric changes is also lowered to such an extent that every time he meets a sudden change in temperature he suffers. The Indian could travel all day in a blinding snowstorm or swim frozen streams but if his 'pale face' brother attempted this he died a few days later of pneumonia. A skin debilitated by the hot house conditions produced by clothing is not an adequate protection for its owner. The sooner he begins to harden and revive it the better it will be for his health."

"This attitude toward clothes will have to pass away if man is again to enjoy the health and vigor that is his by right. In this we have said nothing about the evils of corsets and high heeled shoes worn by women and the worse styles in men's clothing, as we were dealing with clothes as they exclude the light and air from the body. The effects of these two things are indeed bad."

"So prone are we to regard those conditions under which we are born and reared as natural and to look upon those things which the majority of mankind do as an average as the best for us to do as a whole that almost everyone regards clothing as both natural and best for man.

The fact is, clothing is both artificial and harmful." "In truth man was designed by the Creator to enjoy the direct rays of the sun and the soothing and strengthening influence of the winds over the whole surface of his body. He is by nature a nude animal."

Dr. C. W. Saleeby, wrote in, "Sunlight and Health", " ... this most beautiful, versatile and wonderful organ (skin) is, for the most part, smothered, blanched and blinded in clothes, and can only gradually be restored to the air and light which are its natural surroundings. Then, and only then, we learn what it is capable of."

Arnold Rickli, whose sun and air institution in Switzerland attracted patients from all over the world in the 19th century, wrote: "Man is made to live in the open air; therefore when exposed to the action of light, air and sun, he is in his real element. As a natural agent, water takes only an inferior place, above it comes air, whilst light takes precedence of every other natural agent, and is the greatest essential wherever organic life exists. The nervous system, which is an inherent principle of our organism is acted upon by light, especially through the skin. The purpose of the air treatment is the strengthening of the skin by restoring its natural functions and vitality and elasticity it has absorbed from its primitive state when directly in contact with the skin."

Sylvester Graham, wrote in "Lectures on The Science of Human Life": "If man were always to go entirely naked, the external skin, the anatomical structure and functional character and relations of which we have fully contemplated, would be preserved in a more healthy and vigorous state, And perform its functions more perfectly, and thereby the whole human system in all its properties, powers and interests, would be benefitted; the circulation, and particularly the venous circulation which is near the surface, would be more free, full and perfect; respiration or breathing would also be more free, full and perfect; voluntary action would be more u~restrained and easy; the bones would be less liable to disease and distortion; all the muscles of voluntary motion would be better developed and more powerful; in short, the anatomical development and symmetrical proportion, and the physiological power, and functions of every part in the whole system, would be more perfect; and, as a natural consequence, the sensual appetites would be more purely instinctive, and exert a less energetic and despotic influence on the mental and moral faculties, and imagination would be deprived of its greatest power to do evil".


Fruits and plants have the ability to trap and store sun energy. We get our energy from eating fruits and plants. When we eat fruits & green leafy vegetables, we are eating stored sun power.


"For untold centuries the sun has been worshiped as the visible symbol of the creative power," wrote Bernarr McFadden.

"From the dawn of history the sun has been utilized specifically as an aid to the restoration of health and as a means of maintaining and increasing it. The ancient, Greeks and Romans, Egyptians and Assyrians, Arabians, Babylonians and Cretans, the Aztecs, and the early Chinese and Japanese, the inhabitants of India and most of the other nations that were glorious in their day, derived their superb health partly from their contact with the rays of the sun, and healed their ailments by their aid."


Hippocrates, "the Father of Medicine", practiced the sun-cure in the temple of Esculapius on the island of Cos, in ancient Greece.

Hippocrates used "medicine (drugs) very little but relied upon sunlight, hydrotherapy, diet and water drinking, rest, and gymnastic exercise," wrote Bernarr McFadden. SUNBATHING HELPS EVERYONE LOOK, FEEL, GET AND FUNCTION BETTER

Sunlight and Health in the 21st Century 

News and Views

As more scientific evidence of the benefits of sunlight exposure and of getting sunlight into buildings becomes available it will be examined and discussed here. 

Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D deficiency is common across all age groups. There is even a resurgence of the bone disease rickets amongst children, half a century after it was thought to have been eliminated.

For the last 20 years medical experts have been telling us that ultraviolet radiation is harmful and that anyone who goes out in the sun should cover up or put on sunscreen. As soon as summer approaches this message is repeated throughout the media, with little regard to the fact that sunlight is the most important source of vitamin D in the body.

Very few foods are natural sources of vitamin D, and clothing and sunscreens can prevent the synthesis of it in the skin. So, do health campaigns that promote sun avoidance add to the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency? This was one of the subjects discussed at a meeting on Sunlight, Vitamin D and Health chaired by Dr Ian Gibson MP at the House of Commons, London, on the 2nd November 2005.

UV Advantage 


Medical opinion on sunbathing is divided. Anyone wishing to check this should go to the British Medical Journal website and call up from the archives a paper entitled 'Are We Really Dying for a Tan' by Ness, A.R., Frankel, S.J., et al from volume 319, 1999, pages 114-116. 

This paper attracted considerable attention from the media when it was published because the authors suggest that moderate exposure to the sun could be beneficial. As you will see, the correspondence which followed was both lively and informative. 


The Healing Sun also examines the relationship between sunlight and health in buildings. When sunlight has been valued as a medicine, architects have often produced buildings which admitted the sun's rays. But when sunlight is out of favour with doctors, as is the case at present, there is little incentive for architects to make provision for it in their buildings - other than to save energy.

The idea that buildings which admit sunlight are in some way healthier than those that exclude it is a very ancient one. As the old Italian proverb points out 'Dove no va il sole, va il medico' or 'Where the sun does not go, the doctor does' . This saying may well have been coined during the early days of Imperial Rome, when solar architecture, sun-worship, and sunlight therapy went hand in hand. The Romans put great faith in the healing powers of their sun-gods and dedicated temples to them. They were also firm believers in preventive medicine, and relied on sanitation, good water supplies, hygiene, exercise and sunbathing to keep themselves healthy. Also, from about the first century AD, they were designing their villas and public-baths to capture the sun's rays, and so reduce their heating costs. To the Romans, passive solar design would have been entirely compatible with their ideas about medicine, and their religious beliefs.

However, with the Fall of Rome, and then the Dark Ages, the principles of solar architecture were largely ignored, or forgotten. The advantages of getting solar radiation into buildings to prevent disease were not appreciated for more than a thousand years. Indeed, it was not until the latter part of the 19th century that sunlight again came to be regarded as important to health, thanks to a series of scientific discoveries.

The first, and most significant breakthrough was made in 1877, when two English scientists found that light, and especially sunlight, has a bactericidal effect - even when it has passed through glass. Their work prompted other scientists to investigate the effects of exposing bacteria to the sun's rays, and it was not long before sunlight was being hailed as 'Nature's Disinfectant', and an important weapon in the fight against infectious disease.

It has recently been discovered that clinically depressed patients recover more quickly in sunlit wards than dark wards. In another recent study, deaths were found to be more frequent amongst heart attack patients who were put in the sunless north-facing rooms of a cardiac intensive care unit than those fortunate enough to be in sunny rooms.

Admitting sunlight into hospital wards seems justified in that it improves the morale and recovery of patients; but there may be an even more fundamental reason for doing so. An increasing number of bacteria becoming resistant to drugs, and there are dire warnings that we are on the threshold of a post-antibiotic era. If this proves to be the case, and the diseases of the past cannot be controlled by antibiotics, there will have to be changes in medical practice, and ward design. In these circumstances there will be a far greater incentive to produce sunlit buildings than is the case at present.

[MedicalConspiracies] Healing with the SUN

Welcome to Solar Healing Center

The Solar Healing Center is focused on helping humanity to develop a better understanding of how the sun can be used to heal the mind, body and spirit as demonstrated by Hira Ratan Manek, who, as a result of sungazing, has claimed better physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

Hira Ratan Manek (HRM), among others, have proven that a person can live just on solar energy for very long periods without eating any food.  This has come to be known as the HRM phenomenon.  The method is used for curing all kinds of psychosomatic, mental and physical illnesses as well as increasing memory power and mental strength by using sunlight.  One can get rid of any kind of psychological problems, and develop confidence to face any problem in life and can overcome any kind of fear including that of death within 3 months after starting to practice this method.  As a result, one will be free from mental disturbances and fear, which will result in a perfect balance of mind.  If one continues to apply the proper sungazing practice for 6 months, they will be free from physical illnesses.  Furthermore, after 9 months, one can eventually win a victory over hunger, which disappears by itself thereafter.

This is a straight-forward yet effective method based on solar energy, which enables one to harmonize and recharge the body with life energy and also invoke the unlimited powers of the mind very easily. Additionally, it allows one to easily liberate from threefold sufferings of humanity such as mental illnesses, physical illnesses and spiritual ignorance.  

We welcome you to explore and empower yourself with HRM's teachings on how the sun can heal you!


Sun Gazing Process

We have a super computer in our bodies given to us by the nature, which is our brain. HRM (Hira Ratan Manek) calls it the “brainutor”. The brain is more powerful than the most advanced super computer. Each and every human being is gifted with innumerable talents, and infinite inherent powers by nature. Individuals should never underestimate themselves. Everyone is gifted. If we make use of these powers we can take ourselves to great levels. Unfortunately, these infinite inherent powers are programmed in that part of the brain that is largely dormant and goes unused. Even medical science agrees we hardly make use of the brain but about 5-7% – the most brilliant of humans like Albert Einstein is reported to have used only about 32% of their brains.


If we can activate the human brain and awaken these infinite powers inherent in ourselves then we can raise ourselves to higher levels.  We can achieve any results we want.  In order to operate the brain effectively, it needs to be activated.  Being a holistic entity it needs a holistic power supply.  Sun energy is the source that powers the brain, which can enter and leave the human body or the brain only through one organ that is the human eye.  Eyes are the Sun Energy’s entry door to the human brain. They are also known as the windows of the soul.  Recent research has found out that the eye has many functions other than vision.  And more information is continuing to be revealed about the functions of the eye.  The eyes are complex organs and they have 5 billion parts much more than a spacecraft that has about 6-7 million parts.  By this, you can see the immense capacity of the human eye.

HRM asserts that the rainbow is in the eye not in the sky. The seven colors of the sun is only the reflection of what is in the eye.  We can create a rainbow anytime we want – go to the garden, just observe below a source of flowing water as the sun moves above.  There you will see the rainbow.  Eye can receive the entire spectrum of the sunlight.  It’s like having a glass window.  Eye is the perfect instrument to receive all the colors of the rainbow. Since eyes are delicate parts of the body, we have to use them in such a way that they serve our purposes without getting damaged. Present day teachings and ideas such as don’t look at the sunlight at all --you will damage your eyesight; never go out in the sun as you will get cancer, are causing needless hysteria and paranoia. The more you are away from the nature, the more there is a cause for illness and you will automatically support global corporations. There are definite foolproof ways of getting the benefits of the nature without exposing ourselves to its adverse effects.  It is also as intuitive as when the  clouds gather we become gloomy.  When we see the sun, we feel energetic.

The Hex Hollow Murder

Posted: 21 Aug 2010 01:39 PM PDT

In Webster's dictionary, witchcraft is defined as the act or instance of employing sorcery, especially with malevolent intent: a magical rite or technique. The religious will say if you believe in God, and believe in what the Bible says, then you must believe in the powers of evil as well. You cannot take one side and then completely discount the other side...basically, evil power is real and witchcraft is the use of it. In reality, though, there is a very fine line between good and evil.

When it came to folk magic or witchcraft in my neck of the woods, Pow-wow was the preferred mystic art. Pow-wow is a unique combination of Christian theology and shamanistic belief. Shamanism is the oldest form of religion and the belief is that there is one Supreme Being...that all is derived from this and is interrelated. In Europe, Shamanic practitioners were persecuted as witches in the name of orthodox religion. It is still practiced in some rural areas of Pennsylvania, though it has been outlawed for several generations. In spite of the name, it is not of Native American derivation. The name comes from the book Pow-wows, or, The Long Lost Friend, written by John George Hohman and first published in German as Der Lange Verborgene Freund in 1820. The subtitle of the booklet hints at the breadth of its contents...a collection of mysterious and invaluable arts and remedies for man as well as animals with many proofs of their virtue and efficacy in healing diseases, etc. It was recognized mainly by Pennsylvania Dutch hex-meisters but after the translation to English in 1846, it had a tremendous influence on the commoner folk magicians of the Appalachians. This little book includes healing spells, binding spells, protective spells, wards and benedictions. Though I'm not a religious person, I am spiritual (and a bit superstitious...I'll cover that later) and always have my copy of 'The Long Lost Friend' near's my personal talisman.

All religions have an upside and a downside. The downside of the Judeo-Christian tradition is Satanism. The downside of Pow-wow was corruption by practitioners, the hex-meisters, who would cast spells or hexes on anyone for a price. Hex-meisters were deeply feared by most people from all walks of life. These German immigrants came to Pennsylvania during the late 1800s and unlike the regular practitioners of Pow-wow, who were mainly of lower class and came here for religious freedom, these newcomers were of the middle and upper classes. There was, at the time, a revival of occultism in Europe, some of which was Satanic. This first wave of immigrant Germans brought this influence with them and became better known as the Pennsylvania Dutch.

In 1895, John Blymire was born in York County, Pa...into the world of witchcraft, magick and superstition. His father and grandfather were Pow-wows and he inherited their healing abilities, but not the strength of their skills. When Blymire was five, he suffered from opnema, a wasting away of the body that was believed to be caused by hexes, but was usually caused by poor diet and malnutrition. Neither his grandfather nor father could cure him, so they took him to a powerful Pow-wow healer named Nelson Rehmeyer who eventually cured him. (Note: Nelson D. Rehmeyer was a distant relative through marriage on my father's maternal side. Several generations of the Rehmeyer family and my grandmother's family attended the same church)

John Blymire

At age seven, Blymire attempted his first cure and was successful. He was of limited intelligence, homely and only modestly successful as a Pow-wow. People avoided him, except when they needed his Pow-wow skills. Because of this, Blymire was very lonely.

When he was thirteen, he quit school and worked in a cigar factory in York, Pa. He kept to himself, but word got out that he could heal. He supplemented his cigar factory earnings by accepting voluntary offerings for his work as a Pow-wow.

One day, there was an incident that should have made his reputation as a powerful Pow-wow. When work was done, Blymire and the other workers were leaving the factory when someone screamed that a "mad" dog was approaching. A collie, foaming at the mouth, was coming toward them. People tried to go inside the factory, but those leaving blocked their way. Blymire stood between them and the rabid dog, uttered an incantation and made the sign of the cross over the dog's head. The dog's mouth stopped foaming and it seemed to be cured of rabies. Blymire patted it on the head and the dog, tail wagging, followed him as he walked down the street.

Shortly after this incident, Blymire suffered from the opnema again. He was convinced someone had put a hex on him, possibly a jealous Pow-wow who did not want him to be successful. He quit his job in order to discover who had hexed him. He worked in odd jobs and practiced Pow-wow for financial survival and lived in rooming houses. It was at a rooming house where he met Lily, the woman who would become his wife. His health gradually improved and he found a regular job. His Pow-wow clientele steadily increased and it appeared the hex was removed or no longer worked.

Then disaster struck...Blymire's first child died within a few weeks after birth. Then a second child passed away three days after birth. In the meantime, his health declined and he lost his job.

Again, Blymire consulted with other witches to find out who had hexed him. One was Andrew C. Lenhart, a powerful witch who was feared by many police and city officials. Lenhart stated that he was hexed by someone close to him and Blymire was convinced it was Lily. She began to fear him and her father hired a lawyer who had Blymire evaluated by a psychiatrist. The diagnosis was borderline psychoneurosis. Blymire was committed to a state mental hospital from which he escaped by walking out of the door. There was no effort to recommit him.

In 1928, Blymire returned to work at the cigar factory where he met 14-year-old John Curry who had a cruel childhood due to abuse and believed he was hexed. Shortly after this, they met a farmer, Milton J. Hess who believed he was hexed. He and his wife were of Pennsylvania Dutch stock. They obeyed all of the regulations and rules hex-meisters gave them. Milton had been a successful farmer...crops flourished, chickens laid the right amount of eggs and the cows' milk was plentiful. His wife, Alice had a stand at the farmer's market, where she sold vegetables, flowers and fruit.

Hess explained that in 1926, for no apparent reason, things took a downward spiral. Crops began to fail, chickens were stolen and those that weren't did not lay eggs, cows would not eat and no longer produced milk. Milton's health was also severely affected. Wilbert, his 17-year-old son was also affected, psychologically, by hearing his father complain about the failures and lack of money and his mother changing from an energetic cheerful woman into a sad and silent one who withdrew from communicating with family. The family was convinced they were hexed. Hess got a job as a truck driver and Alice still had her stand, now, out of financial necessity.

In June, 1928, Hess met Blymire who lived in the Widow Detwiler's boarding house in an alley. They would talk daily and the conversation, eventually, turned to hexes. About this time, Blymire consulted Nellie Noll, who was known as the 'Witch of Marietta', also as the 'River Witch' in the attempt to discover who had hexed him. She told him that it was the 'Witch of Rehmeyer Hollow'…after much coaxing from Blymire, she named Nelson D. Rehmeyer.

Hess invited Blymire, as a 'Pow-wower' or 'Braucher', to his farm where the witch could see its condition for himself. He asked Blymire who had hexed the family, but he could not remember the name, so he visited Nellie Noll again. Again, she named Nelson D. Rehmeyer and added that Rehmeyer had also hexed Curry. She told him that all they had to do was to get Rehmeyer's copy of John George Hohman's 'Pow-wows or Long Lost Friend' and burn it. If they could not do that, they must get a lock of his hair and bury it 6 to 8 feet underground.

Once Blymire, Curry and the Hesses knew who had hexed them and what had to be done, there was a conference. Attending this meeting were Blymire, Curry and Milton, older brother Clayton and Wilbert Hess. Soon, plans were made for Blymire, Curry and Wilbert Hess to visit Rehmeyer and get a lock of hair or the book, do as they were directed and the hex would be removed. Clayton, the only family member who had a car, would drive them to the hollow. As events happened, Wilbert said he did not feel well and did not want to go. Blymire said it was OK if he did not. He and Curry would get the book or the lock of hair and would do what they had to.

The following information was taken from trial transcripts and records:

Nelson D. Rehmeyer, the 'Witch of Rehmeyer Hollow'

When they got to Rehmeyer's house, they discovered he was not home. They walked to the witch's ex-wife's house and saw a light through the window, so they knocked on the door. The duo was told that Rehmeyer was probably at his lady friend's house. They walked back to the witch's house and noticed a light on the second floor.

Blymire knocked on the door. Rehmeyer opened the door...he was much larger than Blymire remembered and was mean looking. Blymire asked if they could come in and Rehmeyer led them to the parlor where they sat and started to talk.

Blymire asked Rehmeyer if he had seen the book. The response was yes. The next question was if he had one. Again, the answer was affirmative. Blymire was satisfied with the answers. The conversation, then, turned to more mundane topics. Finally, Rehmeyer asked them why they had stopped by. Blymire told him that he had cured him of the opnema when he was a child and he had worked by picking potatoes for him.

Blymire, while they talked, try to mentally will Rehmeyer to hand over the book, but this was not effective. After a while, Rehmeyer said he was going to bed and they could sleep downstairs if they wanted to.

Curry quickly fell asleep while Blymire stayed awake trying to will the old witch to give them the book. Finally, he woke Curry and told him that he could not control Rehmeyer's mind. Should they try to use force and make him give them the book or a lock of hair? Blymire decided against this because the old witch was a big man and could easily overpower them. He decided they needed help.

That morning, Rehmeyer got up early and made the duo breakfast before they left. At some point, they bought a 25 foot length of strong rope and cut it into lengths of about 14 inches.

On Wednesday, November 27th, 1928, the night of the full moon and eve before Thanksgiving, Clayton drove the trio to Rehmeyer's Hollow. The three walked to Rehmeyer's house.

They demanded that he give them the book. He threw his wallet at them. Then, the three attacked Rehmeyer. Blymire wrapped a length of rope around Rehmeyer's neck. The trio fought savagely with the old man…Curry got a block of wood and hit Rehmeyer in the head. The old man was kicked in the head and the stomach and his face was battered. Blymire said he groaned, took a few breaths, then died.

They ransacked the house and found a small amount of money. The trio decided they had to get rid of the evidence that would tie them into the murder. Curry thought setting fire to the house would achieve this. They lit matches and dropped them in the house to set the fire. The house was smoldering when they left.

The house did not burn as they thought it would. A neighbor, Oscar Glatfelter, was passing by Rehmeyer's house on November 30th and heard his mule braying. When the man checked on the animal, he saw it had not been fed. Glatfelter knocked on the door and there was no answer, but the door was unlocked. After the neighbor entered the house, he saw Rehmeyer's corpse lying on the floor.

The Rehmeyer House during the murder investigation

It did not take the police long to arrest Blymire, Curry and Wilbert for the murder of Rehmeyer. All three confessed and Blymire said he was at peace now that he had killed the witch. The newswire services informed the public that a practicing witch had been killed in York County, Pa.

The trials began on January 9th, 1929. Judge Sherwood presided. District Attorney Amos W. Herrmann represented the commonwealth. Public defenders Walter W. VanBaman represented Curry and Herbert B. Cohen, Blymire. The Hess family could afford to hire Harvey A. Gross, the best criminal defense attorney in the area.

Judge Sherwood decreed that all mention of hexes and witchcraft in the confessions be edited out before they were admitted to records. The attempts of the defense attorneys to make hexes and witchcraft a matter of record via testimony were quashed.

Herrmann made his opening statements, avoiding all mention of witchcraft and hexes and forgot to mention the motive for the murder that the judge wanted. He was sharply reminded of this. The decreed motive was robbery and, then, was stated.

When Cohen tried to bring out testimony about witchcraft, the judge thwarted his efforts.

The trials were the some of the speediest in Pennsylvania history. By obstruction of justice, the judge got what he wanted, guilty verdicts, Blymire and Curry, murder in the first degree and Hess, murder in the second degree.

The sentences were handed down on January 14th. Blymire and Curry were given life in prison and Wilbert was given 10 to 20 years. In 1934, Hess and Curry were paroled and lived quiet lives in the York area. Curry became an artist and died in 1962. Blymire was finally paroled in 1953, returned to York and worked as a janitor.


The Hex House in Rehmeyer Hollow, East Hopewell Township, York County, Pa.

This case has always intrigued me...especially after I read Arthur Lewis' account of the incident in his book 'Hex'. I also remember the tales of paranormal activity in Rehmeyer Hollow and the reports of strange apparitions, said to be Nelson Rehmeyer's spirit, roaming the property nightly.

During my senior year in high school, I decided to make a short trip to Rehmeyer Hollow to see what all the fuss was. I had found a copy of 'The Long Lost Friend' and decided to carry it with me. Like I said earlier, I'm a bit superstitious and thought the book may protect me in some way.

I made the journey alone in mid October was late afternoon when I arrived at a locked gate that was suspended over the access road that had a 'No Trespassing' sign attached to it. At that time, the sparse open areas were overgrown with briers and high weeds. The woods were very thick and dark and as I started walking on the road I could make out the roof of the small house jutting over the trees. As I approached, I noticed what looked like an older man in dark pants and a jacket standing on the road near the bend that led to the house….I estimated he was about 150 feet in front of me. It looked like he was searching for something because he was looking face down in a peculiar manner.

I stopped walking and stood for a few seconds watching this person go back and forth across the road, never raising their head. So I decided it was time to find out if this was a caretaker or if it was OK for me proceed any further even though I knew was trespassing.

I shouted "hello...sir". No response. So I was about to shout again thinking this person was hard of hearing or possibly ignoring me. Just as I began to open my mouth to shout, this person quickly looked up and....

Now, I realize that I was a fair distance away but this 'person' that, I swear to this day, had no facial features. No eyes, no mouth, no nose...just a head. I spun around and hauled my butt back to the car. The ghost hunt was over. I wheeled my Mustang out of that hollow onto the main road in record time. Honestly, I don't remember the drive home. I was absolutely stunned by the experience.

A few days later, my girlfriend and I were in my room and she found 'The Long Lost Friend' on my desk. I was lying on the bed with headphones on when I looked over and saw that she was looking in the book. As I watched her, I noticed that there was writing on the book cover. I had purchased the book as new, had never written in it or had it anywhere other than when I was at Rehmeyer Hollow. As I looked closer, there was an "NR" written in pencil.

The next day, I lit the grill in the backyard and promptly burned the book and buried the ashes. I wasn't leaving anything to 'chance'. A few weeks later, I purchase a new copy of 'The Long Lost Friend' and it's been with me since.



The following is a description of how the Pow-wower applied their skills in 20th-century York County, as noted by Arthur H. Lewis in his 1969 book "Hex":

Except for two days a month, the Rohrbaugh Convalescent Home in rural Spring Grove, York County, Pennsylvania, is about as quiet a spot as you're likely to find anywhere in the Keystone State. But on the first and sixteenth, it becomes a mecca for scores of ailing men, women and children who flock to this tiny village, there to be powwowed back to health by Mrs. Leah Frank.

Mistakenly, I assumed there was some significance in the choice of the two days on which Mrs. Frank practices her profession.

"When I reached ninety, and that was four years ago," Mrs. Frank explained, "I thought maybe I'd better quit altogether; it's so hard on a body. But my people wouldn't let me, tole me they needed me. So, instead of workin' every day, I tole 'em I'd 'try for' two days a month and I picked the first and the sixteenth. Then people will know when to come and not be disappointed in between. That's all there is to it."

Through the windows of the second-floor bedroom she seldom leaves, Mrs. Frank can view the soft hills of York County where she has lived all her years. As a matter of fact, the aged powwower spends most of her daylight hours in an old-fashioned Morris chair facing the east. "I'd rather see the sun come up than go down," she says gently.

Except for a slight diminution in hearing and arthritis, only lately beginning to cripple the long, tapered fingers she needs for "laying on" ill or otherwise troubled patients, Mrs. Frank remains in excellent health. Her cheeks, though wrinkled, have a healthy glow; her teeth are her own, and her sharp blue eyes still regard with abiding interest that small portion of the world she sees.

"Prettiest part of the world, though I wouldn't know much about the rest of it," Mr. Frank said in a clear voice with a strong Pennsylvania Dutch inflection. "Born and raised ten miles from here and never been no further away than forty. But you don't have to travel to learn things and how to take care of 'em that needs you, do you?"

She smiled and went on.

"I've been tryin' for people for a long, long time. I always know'd I had the power but I learned how to use it from a veterinarian who practiced powwowin' too. That was back in 1904; I've been doin' it ever since.

"Course that's not all I ever done. I just used to try for people on the side like most of us faith healers do. From the time I was a little girl 'till I was seventy-seven years I worked in a mill and I worked hard, too. Anymore I don't work so hard. Now I'm so old I only powwow."

What troubles Mrs. Frank is the current shortage of apprentices willing to undergo the rigors of training in order to become worthy practitioners.

"I don't mean those that don't have the power inside 'em 'cause they'll never learn no matter how much they want to. Some of 'em try but I always say to 'em, 'If you can't stop blood, you'll never be a powwower, so don't waste your time.'"

"What I'm referrin' to is those that got the power but don't want to use it. It ain't easy; you have to work hard and it makes you mighty tired to try for people.

Mrs. Frank did not elaborate upon the curriculum required before the neophyte can become a full-fledged practitioner. She did say, however, that after "blood stopping," which, incidentally, she claims can never be taught and must be known congenitally, the next training step is wart removal. After that come the many other branches of the discipline concluding with cures for the opnema, St. Anthony's fire and finally tumors.

Mrs. Frank also holds to the orthodox belief, one shared by the majority of her colleagues, that an instructor in powwowism or witchcraft may impart his knowledge only to members of the opposite sex.

"A man shouldn't teach another man or boy and a woman can't teach another woman or girl," claims this nonagenarian necromancer. "I'm helpin' train a young man who lives 'round here and he's doin' all right. But I sure wish I could teach my granddaughter. She was born with the power but she don't know how to use it. She could do wonderful good."

I asked Mrs. Frank what would happen if she attempted to teach the profession to her granddaughter. She shuddered.

"Oh, my goodness! That would be terrible. I'd suffer for it the rest of my days and maybe lose my own power if I tried."

Like the Willow Street powwower, to whom she is not related, Mrs. Frank is aware of the present of evil area witches. However, she does not subscribe to Clair Frank's depressing theory that practitioners of the black art are getting smarter as well as increasingly numerous.

"Not many of 'em 'round as there used to be," Mrs. Frank said cheerfully. "And they're getting dumber and dumber all the time. But when I was a girl!"

NOTE: In 1988, the film Apprentice to Murder was released and starred Donald Sutherland, Chad Lowe and Mia Sara. The story was based on the Rehmeyer Hollow Murder...Lon

The Hex Hollow Murder

Fortean / Oddball News - 8/21/2010

The Incredible Shrinking Moon

AP - The moon may be shrinking.

Not to worry though, lovers and crooners, it won't be disappearing any time soon.

New research indicates cracks in the moon's crust that have formed as the interior has cooled and shrunk over the last billion years or so. That means the surface has shrunk, too, though not so you'd notice just from gazing at it.

Scientists have identified 14 landforms called lobate scarps scattered over the surface of the moon, explained Thomas R. Watters of the Center for Earth and Planetary Studies at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum.

Watters and colleagues describe their find in Friday's edition of the journal Science.

The scarps had previously been noted at the moon's equator, but this is the first evidence in other areas, indicating they result from a global process.

The study calls the scarps "evidence of recent thrust faulting on the moon." But this is planetary science, where "recent" can mean a billion years ago.

The scarps, or cliffs, extend across some small craters, and small craters tend to be obliterated over time, Watters explained in a telephone interview. In addition, there are no large craters imposed on top of the scarps, another indication they are relatively recent, in planetary terms, he said.

"One of the really cool parts of this ... the faults are so young-looking that you can't escape the possibility that this contraction occurred recently, and could indicate that the moon is still active," Watters said.

The size of the scarps indicates a shrinkage in the size of the moon of about 100 meters (328 feet), which wouldn't be nearly enough to be noticed with the naked eye. The moon is about one-fourth the size of the Earth in diameter.

The scarps range up to 10 meters (a little over 30 feet) high and a few kilometers long, he said. By comparison, the planet Mercury has much larger scarps indicating considerably more shrinkage over time.

The moon's not going to disappear and its shrinkage won't affect the Earth in any way, Watters stressed.


Kissing Bugs...Nasty Little Insects That Bite Your Lips

fishinsects - Triatoma infestans is one of the Kissing Bugs. Like the ticks, these bugs can carry human diseases. T.infestans is the most important carrier of Chaga's disease in South America.

What happens is that the bug gets infected with the parasite (Trypanosoma cruzi) when he sucks blood from an infected person, and then passes it on when he bites a new victim. The parasite is actually passed out with the bug's faeces, and then it creeps into the wound which is usually on the lips. Soon after infection there is a chronic reaction, typically with swelling around the lips, and then the disease lays dormant for several years. The later, chronic, stage of the disease is very serious. There is often severe heart damage, and while the disease can be treated just after infection, the chronic disease remains incurable. Even heart transplants don't seem to work because the parasite just takes advantage of the lowered immune system, reproduces like mad, and then starts doing damage all over again!

Charles Darwin ( famous for his views on evolution ) probably caught Chaga's Disease when he was bitten by "a great black bug of the pampas" while on his famous voyage round the world in the 'Beagle'. It is possible to get a vaccination before going to places where the disease is endemic (parts of South America), and you can also use mosquito nets. The worrying thing is that for every one adult flying down to 'get' you there will be five young ones crawling up! And that's not all one has young that camouflage themselves, so that you can end up carrying them into the house with the firewood.

Kissing Bugs are members of the Assassin Bug and Wheel Bug family of insects (Reduviidae). They have been found preserved in Amber - (Assassin Bug in Colombian Amber). Most Assassin Bugs kill insects so they can be very helpful to man, often killing agricultural and garden pests, and sometimes more directly (such as the 'Masked Hunter' who kills bedbugs!). Wheel Bugs are among the many bugs kept as pets by some people who feed them mealworms. They look very unusual but they can give a very nasty bite, so I don't think I'll go any further than keeping Silverfish myself!


India Couple Sacrifices 4-Year-Old Daughter To 'Attain Wealth'

indiatimes - A poverty-stricken couple in an Uttar Pradesh village allegedly killed their four-year-old daughter after a self-proclaimed godman assured them that the act would attain them affluence, police said Wednesday.

Shri Krishna and his wife Rama Devi are absconding. The body of their daughter Kanni was recovered late Tuesday evening from their house in Sitapur district's Dahelikushepa village, some 80 km from Lucknow.

"Investigations reveal it is a case of human sacrifice. Flowers, packets of sindoor (vermillion), incense sticks and other 'puja' items were recovered from near the girl's body," police inspector Rajveer Singh told reporters in Sitapur.

"The body, which was found buried in the courtyard, had multiple burn injuries. It appeared that the girl was attacked with a sharp-edged weapon. The body has been sent for post-mortem examination," he added.

The couple killed their daughter under the influence of a 'tantrik', Shiv Kumar, who too is absconding.

Villagers, who noticed Shiv Kumar entering the couple's house Tuesday morning, informed the police after they heard Kanni's screams.

"They managed to escape. The same 'tantrik' had also suggested other families to go for a child sacrifice in order to get rid of their poverty," the police inspector said.

"Locals said Shri Krishna and his wife believed they would attain affluence overnight with the ways suggested by Shiv Kumar," he added.


Raelians' 'Go Topless' Day

myfoxspokane - Sunday is "Go Topless" Day, with women (and men) gathering in U.S. cities to advance a woman's right to go shirtless, just like men.

"As long as men can be topless, constitutionally women should have the same right, or men should also be forced to wear something hiding their chest," Maitreya, Rael, "spiritual leader" and founder of Go Topless , the group behind Sunday's annual event, says on the group's website.

In case you are wondering:

• No, there is no PG version of Sunday's event.

• Women do wear nipple covers that look like actual nipples.

• They also wear little more than strategically placed stickers.

• And guys? Male supporters wear bras and bikinis.

The annual event is held on the Sunday nearest to Aug. 26, the date in 1920 when the U.S. Constitution was amended to grant women the right to vote. Also, Congress in 1970 declared Aug. 26 "Women's Equality Day."

Major cities taking part include: San Francisco; New York; Austin, Texas ; Los Angeles; Denver; Seattle; Miami, and Chicago .

Go Topless was founded by the Raelian Movement, which believes that life on Earth was created by advanced extraterrestrial scientists, states the group's website.

For supporters of the topless cause, a woman's breasts should not be treated any different than her legs, belly button or other body parts than can be exposed without hassle.

"It's a matter of fairness," Go Topless director Nadine Gary told AOL News . "We want equal topless rights for all or none."

Gary, a native of France, which tolerates topless women in public, wants the issue to become law, guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

She said the goal is also to establish clarity in what's allowed. Gary noted that a woman arrested in New York for going topless in public was later awarded $29,000 for wrongful arrest.


Japanese Man Kept Dead Mother in a Backpack

BBC - The remains of a Japanese woman have been found in a backpack, in the latest gruesome discovery by investigators searching for missing old people.

The woman's son told police his mother died in 2001 but he had not been able to pay for a burial.

A similar discovery weeks ago sparked a search for people who are registered as being more than 100 years old.

According to Japanese media, the audit has so far identified 281 centenarians who are missing or have already died.

The inquiry followed the discovery last month of the mummified remains of a man registered as being 111 years old. He had died 30 years earlier.

Those unaccounted for include a 125-year-old woman whose registered address was turned into a park in 1981, according to media reports.

In the latest find, a 64-year-old man told officials that his mother had died at home in Tokyo in "about June 2001".

"Because I didn't have money for a funeral, I didn't report her death," the Sankei Shimbun newspaper quoted him as saying.

The AFP news agency reported that he told police: "I laid out her body for a while, washed it in the bath, then broke up the bones and put them into a backpack."

But the woman's pension continued to be paid and police are now investigating the son on suspicion of fraud.

There are more than 40,000 registered centenarians in Japan, according to government data, but the number of missing has raised concerns that the welfare system is being exploited by dishonest relatives.

Analysts say there is dismay in Japan that a rich, efficient society could have lost track of its senior citizens to such a degree.

Voracious Self-Cloning Crayfish Invades Ecologically Sensitive Madagascar

Posted: 21 Aug 2010 08:26 AM PDT

sci-tech-today - Alarm is mounting on the Indian Ocean island of Madagascar over an invasion of voracious self-cloning crayfish, which are gobbling their way through rice paddies and threatening endemic crayfish species.

The marbled crayfish, or marmorkrebs, is color mottled brown-green with light and dark spots and can grow up to 10 centimeters in length.

It is not clear how or when the shrimp-like crustacean, which is believed to originate in North America, came to this vast island, which lies 400 kilometers off the coast of Mozambique.

Experts believe it arrived via Europe, where German scientists already warned in 2003 about the proliferation of the crayfish as aquarium fish.

Professor Olga Ramilijaona, a biologist at the capital's Universite d'Antananarivo, said the first specimens were discovered in a rice paddy near the capital in 2003.

But the first "invasion" of the Procambarus species came only four years later during the 2007 summer rainy season, when the crayfish, which are sold to impoverished locals as a cheap source of protein, began cropping up for sale on markets.

Today they are found in rice paddies, rivers, lakes and swamps in eight of the country's 22 regions, mainly in the central high plains, where Antananarivo, the capital, is situated.

"Our seven indigenous crayfish species are directly threatened by these voracious non-endemic species," Professor Noromalala Raminosoa, also of the capital's university, told a press conference last week.

Raminsoa said all types of Procambarus are carriers of the crayfish disease, which nearly wiped out European crayfish in former times.

"If nothing is done to stop them these crayfish will become a national threat," she warned.

Apart from the threat to biodiversity, the crayfish are also devouring young rice plants and attacking small fish bred in rice paddies.

Madagascar's rice farmers use their paddies as mini-fish farms to supplement their diet -- and their income -- with small carp and tilapia.

Local daily Midi Madagasikara quoted a farmer from a small village on the outskirts of Antananarivo as saying his catch of tilapia had fallen by about 75 per cent since the crayfish appeared.

The crayfish "will eat any plant matter, including rice. In fact, they'll eat any biological matter," the biologists warned.

They also reproduce at an explosive rate, producing up to 400 eggs in 40 days during the warm rainy season.

In 2003, German scientists proved that the marmorkrebs could clone itself. Although the crayfish also reproduced sexually, females were able to lay eggs which hatched without being fertilized.

Known as parthenogenisis, this type of unisex reproduction is effectively a form of natural cloning.

Biologists here fear that if the crayfish continue to gain new ground the impact on the environment of this ecologically sensitive island, which is home to tens of thousands of plants and animals found nowhere else, could be disastrous.

Working with Conservation International, the university has launched a campaign across areas within a 200-kilometer radius of the capital. Using pictorial placards, they warn people against the dangers of the pest, known locally as orana vahiny.

"We get diarrhea after eating them," one farmer said. "Even the pigs won't eat them."

Rice farmers have also grouped together and have began fishing out and burning the crayfish en masse.

Meanwhile, at bush taxi ranks on roads leading out of the capital, volunteers are checking passengers' baggage to ensure that plateau dwellers are not carrying the crayfish to give as presents to relatives in other regions.
