Why celebrities are smarter than scientists on health advice (plus other news)

NaturalNews Insider Alert ( newsletter

Dear NaturalNews readers,


I hope you had a great Christmas break! Here at NaturalNews, we've been on a scaled-down news publishing schedule that will continue through January 2nd. But there are still some fascinating stories that have surfaced over the last few days you'll want to know about anyway...


Nobel Payola Prize? Were you aware that the Nobel Prize Foundation may be strongly influenced by Big Pharma? No wonder the latest prize for medicine financially benefits the drug companies. Read the full story here:


In other news, psychiatric doctor Nemeroff has just been caught -- again! -- with secret financial ties to Big Pharma, and he's resigning -- again! -- from a chairmanship at Emory University. Read about this repeating scandal here:


Meanwhile, celebrities are under attack once again by "skeptical scientists" who claim you should never follow the health advice of people like Kate Moss, Tom Cruise, Demi Moore or Oprah. They tell you to do silly things like drink fresh vegetable juices, avoid toxic vaccines, take nutritional supplements or stop poisoning your skin with cancer-causing chemicals in personal care products.


All this "bad" advice is nothing more than scientific illiteracy, say Skeptical Scientists (SS), and many in the mainstream media agree with them. But in today's feature story, I open the mouths of all those Skeptical Scientists and shovel in their own feet! Read my humorous rebuttal to the attack on celebrity health advice here:


Oh yes, by the way, Facebook has banned photos of babies breastfeeding. Because, you know, an image of a human baby drinking human breastmilk is apparently obscene. 70,000+ mothers have joined the online protest to school Facebook in the facts about raising human babies on something other than melamine-contaminated infant formula dripped through plastic bottles contaminated with Bisphenol-A. Check out that story here:
