Professor Paul Connett & Dr Bill Hirzy on the Danger of Fluoride - Interviewed by Lisa Er. (Ultimo)
posted Thu February 26th 2015 @ 1:21 PM
As of February 2015, a total of 50 studies have investigated the relationship between fluoride and human intelligence, and a total of 32 studies have investigated the relationship fluoride and learning/memory in animals.
Of these investigations, 43 of the 50 human studies have found that elevated fluoride exposure is associated with reduced IQ, while 30 of the 32 animal studies have found that fluoride exposure impairs the learning and/or memory capacity of animals.
The human studies, which are based on IQ examinations of over 11,000 children, also provide compelling evidence that fluoride exposure during the early years of life can damage a child’s developing brain. One study shows it damages the IQ on average by a shocking 7 points. This is of particular concern in poorer areas where children are already disadvantaged, and will ultimately even affect their financial wellbeing in their future.
After reviewing 27 of the human IQ studies, a team of Harvard scientists have concluded that fluoride’s effect on the young brain should now be a high research priority.
It is interesting to note that before any of the studies finding reduced IQ in humans were known in the western world, a team of U.S. scientists at a Harvard-affiliated research centre predicted, based on behavioural effects they observed in fluoride-treated animals, that fluoride might be capable of reducing IQ in humans.
So why are we having a neurotoxin that contains arsenic added to our water? Read More »
Bruce Lipton on Love and 'The Honeymoon Effect' (Ultimo)
posted Thu February 19th 2015 @ 11:39 AM
From the Prime Ministers Office down to Bart Simpson to Confucius to Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh including the Holy Breath. This also encompasses values and virtues to pleasure and pain, oxytocin and sin and the 6th great extinction. The way forward through this, is to see humanity as one colossal super organism and awakening to a greater consciousness on earth is going to be the great decider! This is an informative as well as entertaining interview that takes a seriously light-hearted journey through the honeymoon effect, out to the other side … and back.
With the emergence of his book the Biology of Belief and its equally radical sequel, Spontaneous Evolution, where Bruce awakens us to the realisation that we humans in most circumstances are the governor of both our own health and ultimately our destiny too, he also delves deeper into the essence of the great unknown force - that is Love.
Where his most recent book, the Honeymoon Effect ask the question, that when we at first become sooooo in love that we will do anything for our partner for over 6 months to a year to 2-3 years or longer, the joy and the euphoria falls away …until the mundane becomes the default setting … Where is the Love? What happened? … Ouch! How can we fall back into Love again?
In this interview Bruce covers some clearly articulated pointers that allow us to realise that basically from our first in-breath, we are programmed by our environment at a very subtle level by our parents and whoever is closely associated with us as a baby, 95% of it subconsciously being so indistinct that it will only show up later in life. This 95% now being backed by science is what governs out regular day to day existence, it’s our subconscious that is the director. Read More »
Jon Carapiet on our future with GE and GMO's, plus the NZ Food Matters Conference (Ultimo)
posted Thu February 12th 2015 @ 10:48 AM
Most New Zealanders have no idea that our country is under a continuous, insidious assault from Corporate and monetarist forces intent on circumventing our moratorium that expired in 2003 of refraining from growing GE and GMO food nationwide.
This is being done whilst our Government and elected servants turn the other way, abandoning the moral imperative and leaving virtually everything to neo-liberal market forces and a compliant mainstream media that also manipulates our minds through unconscious talk show hosts who will never look at the deeper levels of what we are leaving our children and grandchildren.
So this is a warning that New Zealand has gone backwards in terms of regulatory systems and strategic planning. This is as a result of the loss of safeguards established after the Royal Commission on Genetic Modification, including the abolition of the Bio Ethics Council, the termination of the MORST Futurewatch programme, and the failure to update the national biotechnology strategy since 2003.
So what we have now is a deceitful and unethical commercial scheme to erode our supposed clean green image by importing GE food stuffs like soya beans, maize etc so as to feed it to our cows, chickens and possibly pigs, under the guise that in a world of cut throat commercial concerns it is just far more economical to use genetically modified food. Money and profit being the bottom line. Read More »

Lisa Er & John Coombs End Of Year Overview with Tim Lynch (Ultimo)
posted Fri December 19th 2014 @ 10:54 AM
This was a extremely interesting finale to GreenplanetFM’s year of broadcasting. Showing that innovation and intuitive insights are still pushing the boundaries here in NZ, and that as NZ is the closest large country to the international dateline, it can be said that we in NZ see tomorrow first.
From this discussion we still recognise that grass roots organising is the only way we can initiate change, being that which has localised support.
Lisa, laying down a new framework so as to guide us in self governance at a community to national level that is guided by a conscious blue print that takes human governance to a level never before envisaged and John, talking to quantum biology adding that for people to not be limited from lack of energy, we must ensure we operate at optimum health. With the use of new cutting edge health technology have our hormones in balance, eating preferably organic sustenance, to empower us to co-create our day, and contribute in the community as part of a far larger dynamic whole.

Keith Locke speaks about the Countering Terrorist Fighters Bill (Ultimo)

Ex Green Member of Parliament Keith Locke speaks about the Countering Terrorist Fighters Bill with Lisa Er.
The Government is legislating at breakneck speed to pass a Bill it calls "Countering Terrorist Fighters Legislation". It will allow the SIS to conduct video surveillance on private property, for a specific period of time without a warrant, and will enable New Zealand passports to be suspended for 10 days or even cancelled for up to three years.
All this, in case we harbour aspirant fighters for a fundamentalist Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. But experts like Richard Jackson of Otago University say the evidence shows that it is extremely rare for returning jihadists to commit terrorist acts in their home country. Is it wrong to create law, which offends our human rights, just to cover some very unlikely or exceptional future event?
And as Miky Savage said in an article, the claimed urgency of the measure is dubious.
You wonder why the Bill was introduced so late. And you have to question why a full select committee process cannot occur. The case for change has not been made out and the current system for issuing warrants can, if properly resourced, work perfectly adequately. Read More »

Matt Robson - Former Minister for Disarmament & Chair of the Parliamentary Privileges Committee (Ultimo)

Matt states that for New Zealand to be happy as a country and be respected in the world, you need to know what your place is and to be seen as a country that makes its own mind up for its people and for their interests.
This does not mean that you are selfish or isolated, in fact quite the opposite, because if you make your own decisions, you are not told which countries that you can deal with and which you can't. Which was certainly a factor when we were tied to our mother United Kingdom’s apron strings and later becoming a close ally to the United States which of course is reoccurring to this day.
This then opens out to how do we remain/become independent which is inclusive of indigenous people and being independent sets the framework of this interview. The question of independence is central to many New Zealanders.
As an Australian, Matt was very interested in independence, for as the Australia Labour Government of Gough Whitlam in 1972 was closely followed by the Norman Kirk Labour Government here in NZ in the same year, there was a keen interest in charting a more independent course, away from being maneuvered by the interests of the larger Western powers. So that brought about an enormous wellspring of a desire for so many people here to become more independent and these was exciting times.

Ben Bell - Inventor and CEO of Hungry Bins, on worm farms & sustainability (Ultimo)
posted Thu November 13th 2014 @ 9:11 AM
Compost worms and earth worms are the unsung heroes of the composting world and the ecological world - generally. Aristotle called them the intestines of the soil, and Charles Darwin's last book was dedicated to covering the role of earthworm on our planet. Even in his day he was aware that many cultures in the 19th century were very conscious of the role that earthworms played in the creation of high quality soil and fertility.
When we understand the complexity and the relationships within the web of life and when we take the time to understand the grandeur in a fork full of compost, we realise that trillions of microflora, spiralling DNA, decaying leaf matter plus minerals and life force can be enabled to journey up through a young tree, to eventually manifest a juicy fresh golden peach in our hands - as undeniable ripe-full fruition.
From dark dirt of the earth to fleshy, succulence and juicy sweetness - the transmutation of minerals into food, nobly assisted by the humble earth worm.
Ben started off young, with grandparents having incredible gardens and his grandmother having bees so they were constantly embedding themselves in high quality food and the enthusiasm of growing food for themselves and that his parents were also into sustainability. So his upbringing was very focused on growing food by organic means in which he terms his kaupapa - respect for growing food and eating it being always present. Read More »
