Beyond plaques: New Alzheimer's treatment pathway discovered

i do noty know if this alters disease progress, but it does appear to impact symptoms andvthat may be just good enough for most.

Recall that chess master who played almost to the bitter end who autopsied out with an advanced case.

So this obviously matters a lot.  still a death sentance but preserving mental integrety.

Beyond plaques: New Alzheimer's treatment pathway discovered

March 27, 2024

New pathways to combating and treating Alzheimer's disease are emerging as researchers look for mechanisms beyond brain plaques

Researchers have discovered that limiting a certain enzyme can have a dramatic impact in protecting against the effects of Alzheimer's disease. The finding could lead to a new class of drugs that fight the disease.

Much of the historical research into Alzheimer's disease has focused on plaques that form in the brain thanks to the accumulation of too much amyloid proteins. Recently, though, scientists have begun looking beyond the role of these proteins (which one study suggests may form in the liver) into other probable causes of the disease and its advancement. That's largely because amyloid-based plaques, while certainly a hallmark of the disease, don't seem to be a direct cause of it, as evidenced by the failure of drugs that try to target them.

In seeking another way forward, researchers at the University of Leeds (UL) and Lancaster University (LU) in the UK, turned to an Australian study that showed that having the gene for the production of an enzyme known as PDE4B was identified as a risk factor for developing Alzheimer's.

The enzyme is found in cells and is responsible for breaking down a molecule known as cyclic AMP, which is linked to many metabolic roles including the regulation of immune function and neurotransmitter synthesis. Interestingly, a 2015 study showed that limiting PDE4B expression gave mice a brainpower boost.

Once again looking at how suppressing PDE4B might affect the brain, the UK team genetically modified mice with Alzheimer's and amyloid plaques in the brain to have reduced PDE4B activity. The researchers found startling results on a number of fronts.

First, the mice with Alzheimer's and normal PDE4B expression showed memory loss when navigating a maze. But those who had the genetic modification to have less PDE4B activity showed no impairment at all. Second, the modified mice showed a normal level of glucose metabolism in their brains even though they had Alzheimer's disease (AD) and that function is usually diminished. Finally, the team observed that mice with less PDE4B activity had less inflammation in their brains than those with more of the enzyme – another hallmark of AD.

Real hope

Because all of these effects were found in mice that already had Alzheimer's – and the accompanying amyloid plaques – but had significant improvement in symptoms, the researchers say that further investigation into how to limit PDE4B in human patients with the condition could lead to new treatment pathways.

"These results offer real hope for the development of new treatments that will benefit patients with Alzheimer's disease in the future," said LU's Neil Dawson, a co-author of the study. "It was intriguing to find that reducing PDE4B activity by just 27% could dramatically rescue memory, brain function and inflammation in the AD mice. The next stage is to test whether PDE4B-inhibiting drugs have similar beneficial effects in the AD mouse model, to test their potential efficacy in Alzheimer's disease."

Study co-author Steven Clapcote from LU, says he believes the findings might also help treat dementia beyond Alzheimer's.

"Reducing the activity of the PDE4B enzyme had a profound protective effect on memory and glucose metabolism in the AD mouse model, despite these mice showing no decrease in the number of amyloid plaques in the brain," he said. "This raises the prospect that reducing PDE4B activity may protect against cognitive impairment not only in Alzheimer's disease but also in other forms of dementia, such as Huntington's disease." Huntington's is also marked by a build-up of plaques in the brain.

Hair-loss treatment found in cinnamon

We sort of knew that this effect was out  there with a number of plants.  All pointing toward an effective treatment protocol that actually stimulates hair growth.

Maybe we can get there with this.

this should express as a sound hair treatment ,sort of like the body shop and their shea nut butter which is the major ingredient in all their creams, if you look closely at the label.  Maybe the body shop should pick up on this.

shea butter actually ends chronic skin cracking on your feet.

Hair-loss treatment found in cinnamon

March 27, 2024

Cinnamic acid, a component of Chinese cinnamon, promoted hair growth in the lab

A component of the aromatic spice cinnamon caused hair follicles to sprout in the lab, with researchers now set on developing a novel treatment to reverse hair loss through the use of natural compounds.

Our hair is a marker of beauty, pride, and health integral to our identity and how others perceive us. Conversely, hair loss can cause a great deal of emotional strain and reduce our quality of life.

Hair restoration treatments are limited to either surgical (hair transplantation) or non-surgical (drugs) methods. So, finding a novel – preferably non-invasive – hair loss treatment is understandably high on some researchers’ lists. Researchers from the Yokohama National University (YNU) in Japan hope that cinnamon is that sought-after novel treatment.

They’d previously found that the so-called ‘love hormone’ oxytocin promoted hair growth by upregulating genes in the dermal papilla cells that are pivotal in hair formation, growth, and cycling. However, an issue with administering oxytocin through the skin so that it activates this hair-growth pathway is that it’s a relatively large molecule, so absorption is prevented.

Enter cinnamon or, more precisely, cinnamic acid from Chinese cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia). Cinnamon is already known to possess wide-ranging health benefits, including skin-anti-aging effects and was recently discovered to enhance skin elasticity through its effect on oxytocin receptors. Cinnamic acid, which is widely used in cosmetics, is a fraction of the molecular weight of oxytocin.

The researchers evaluated the effects of cinnamic acid on the expression of oxytocin and hair growth-related genes. Dermal papilla cells were cultured with different acid cinnamic concentrations, ranging from 0 to 2,000 µg/mL. Concentrations of 1,000 and 2,000 µg/mL were observed to cause cell damage and, above 500 µg/mL, considerably inhibited cell proliferation. However, at concentrations below 500 µg/mL, there was an observable dose-dependent increase in the expression of oxytocin and genes associated with hair growth.

Treating hair follicle organoids with cinnamic acid treatment increased their sprouting length, suggesting that the treatment promoted hair growth
Kageyama et al.

A human hair follicle organoid (‘hair follicloid’) was developed that could regenerate hair shafts. Using an organoid, essentially a miniaturized organ, allowed the researchers to simultaneously expose diverse cells to the cinnamic acid treatment, providing larger, more dependable data. They tested 0, 50, 100 and 500 µg/mL concentrations on the follicloids for up to 10 days. Results showed a considerable increase in hair sprouting length by the eighth day at 100 and 500 µg/mL concentrations, suggesting that the optimal concentration fell somewhere in that range.

Compared with oxytocin’s effect on hair growth, which produced a 1.3-fold increase, cinnamic acid produced a comparable 1.25-fold increase.

“The identification of cinnamic acid as a specific component with hair growth-promoting properties holds great promise for enhancing the effectiveness of hair growth products,” said Tatsuto Kageyama, associate professor at YNU’s Faculty of Engineering and the study’s lead author. “In addition, the new understanding of the mechanism of hair growth-promoting effects mediated by oxytocin signaling will provide new insights [for] hair care science and help accelerate the search for new drugs targeting oxytocin receptor expression in the field of drug discovery.”

There’s no benefit to buying Chinese cinnamon in bulk at this stage. Further research will focus on experiments on mice with hair loss to determine the effectiveness of administering cinnamic acid through the skin, the dosage required, and whether it produces any side effects.

However, if you want to conduct your own at-home tests, cinnamic acid can also be found in citrus fruits, grapes, cocoa, spinach, celery and brassica vegetables, which include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collard greens, kale, and turnips.

Doomed Dali ship's audio black box reveals multiple alarms were blaring in moments

I have read an engineers report as well and it is plausible that the control system for the power system was hacked along with the GPS which would blind the bridge.  That is actually the most likely scenario and triggering all alarms conforms to this type of attack.

The ship rotated out of harbor opening up a wide arc of potential impacts.  engine failure coincided with shooting a bulls eye which the ship then slammed into.  this also made the bulls eye not so obvious to the pilot.  All way too lucky folks and looks carefully simulated before launched.

Any other explanation produces a near miss at best.  So someone wanted this to happen.

A lot is been said about the economic impact, but i suggest we wait and see.  ports have ample surplus capacity all about and folks will now earn their pay.  It was not a nuclear strike taking out Baltimore.


Doomed Dali ship's audio black box reveals multiple alarms were blaring in moments..

.03-28-2024 •, By WILL POTTER

Multiple alarms sounded on board the doomed Dali cargo ship in the minutes before it smashed into Baltimore's Key Bridge, new black box audio data revealed.

The NTSB said it received six hours of audio from the ship's voyage data stretching from midnight until 6am. The vessel impacted moments before 1.30am.

Marcel Muise, the NTSB lead investigator in the case, said Wednesday that alarms began blaring on the ship at 1.24am.

At 1.26am, the ship's pilot requested urgent help from nearby tug boats, and at 1.27am he ordered the ship's anchor be dropped.

The exact cause of the catastrophe that has left at least six people dead is still under investigation, with some form of mechanical failure speculated as footage also showed the ship's lights turning on and off several times in the moments before.

The new data was revealed at a press conference on Wednesday, where NTSB Chief Jennifer Homendy confirmed all 23 crewmembers - including two temporary pilots intended to only safely steer the vessel out of port - were safe.

Over 4,600 cargo units were on board the ship, 56 of which contained hazardous materials. Homendy said some of the hazardous cargo was breached, but did not indicate it posed a public safety threat.

After Muise offered details of alarms sounding off in the moments before impact, Honendy said the data falls short of what investigators would expect if they were investigating a similar catastrophe involving an aircraft.

Is it accurate to say that Germany's victory in France in 1940 was lucky and could be blamed on France?

Turns out that the only advantage enjoyed by the German army was a fully operational radio based comm system achieving comms that meet todays standards.  I have seen those big clumsy boxes ,but the surely worked.

The French had none of this and had a four day turn around between their main headquarters and the frront. sound ridiculous, but way more damaging  was no local comms to their tanks.  not good.

It is noteworthy that this failure has remained almost secrete to this day.  

They had the trained men and better hardware just not talking to each other.  Strategic failure certainly gave the Germans victory but it was reversable by swift mobalization of corps to change direection.  Swift was not an option.

Is it accurate to say that Germany's victory in France in 1940 was lucky and could be blamed on France?

It was exclusively on France.

Panzers at Sedan

See, in 1940, French army was superior to the Wehrmacht. It had two tanks to each German tank, and French tanks were substantially better than German tanks on average. The only credible tanks Germans had were Czech Pz38(t) and their own Panzer III and IV tanks, these combined represented perhaps one fifth of the German tanks. The French had several times that number of competitive models - Char B1 was fearsome in 1940, the S35 tank as good or better as Panzer III/IV and outnumbering both. The R35 was larger, more powerful and more numerous that Panzer IIs in the image above. The French also had an advantage in artillery, approximately two guns to each German gun. The British expeditionary corps were no slouches either.

Germans only had two advantages. The smaller advantage was the air power, Luftwaffe was twice as large as their adversaries, had better pilots and flew better planes. This would have made an impact, you would expect serious French and British losses due to that. The Allied air forces would be able to interfere, but not stop Luftwaffe operations no matter what happened. The big advantage however was communications.

In a way, the Fall of France was the first war decided by flow of information. French messages were sent by curier or pigeon, to a headquarters outside Paris, then the same way back. It took approximately 48 hours for news from the front line to reach the high command and another 48 hours back. By contrast, Germans used radio, it took minutes for information to reach the decision-makers, and minutes back. In some instances, air support was called in and bombs delivered on target within 20 minutes - good by modern standards. This was what doomed France and yes, stupidity is a good name for it. The French willingly sabotaged their own war effort, believing information security was more important than delivering information to intended recipient. The French believed the greatest threat was Germans knowing of their plans, but it turns out Germans knowing their own plans was far more important.

This plus the lack of strategic depth between Paris and German border is why France fell so quickly. A combination of luck and French stupidity would be a good way to describe it.

World’s fastest camera shoots at 156.3 trillion frames per second

Recall that we pass through TIME. one frame at a time or tick.  this may well allow us to approach that frame rate in TIME and pick up some interesting new science.  We will approach real extremes here.

This may surprise us in terms of importance. could we manipulate things?

just asking ,but we may be able to look closely and measure things.

World’s fastest camera shoots at 156.3 trillion frames per second

March 26, 2024
The new camera can reportedly capture events that occur in the realm of femtoseconds

Engineers at INRS Énergie Matériaux Télécommunications Research Centre in Canada have developed the world’s fastest camera, which can shoot at an astonishing 156.3 trillion frames per second (fps).

The best slow-mo cameras in phones are usually working with a few hundred fps. Professional cinematic cameras might use a few thousand, to achieve a smoother effect. But if you want to see what’s going on at the nanoscale, you’ll need to slow things way down, to the billions or even trillions of frames per second.

The new camera can reportedly capture events that occur in the realm of femtoseconds – quadrillionths of a second. For reference, there’s about as many of those in one second as there are seconds in 32 million years.

The researchers built on technology they developed as far back as 2014, known as compressed ultrafast photography (CUP) which could capture a now paltry-seeming 100 billion fps. The next stage was called T-CUP, with the T standing for “Trillion-frame-per-second” – which was, true to its word, capable of up to 10 trillion fps. And then in 2020, the team bumped it up to 70 trillion fps with a version called compressed ultrafast spectral photography (CUSP).

Now, the researchers have more than doubled it again, to a mind-boggling 156.3 trillion frames per second. The new camera system is called “swept-coded aperture real-time femtophotography” (SCARF), which can capture events that happen too fast for even the previous versions of the tech to see. That includes things like shock waves moving through matter or living cells.

The SCARF system, the world's fastest camera, in the lab

SCARF works by first firing off a “chirped” ultrashort pulse of laser light, which passes through the event or object being imaged. If you picture the light as a rainbow, the red wavelengths will capture the event first, followed by orange, yellow, and down the spectrum to violet. Because the event is happening so quickly, by the time each successive “color” reaches it, it looks different, allowing the pulse to capture the whole thing changing over an incredibly short period of time.

This light pulse is then run through a gauntlet of components that focus, reflect, diffract and encode it, until it finally reaches the sensor of a charge-coupled device (CCD) camera. This then converts into data that can be reconstructed by a computer into the final image.

While it’s unlikely us regular Joes will be watching high-speed videos of balloons popping that have been captured by SCARF systems, the researchers say capturing new ultrafast phenomena could help improve fields like physics, biology, chemistry, materials science and engineering.

Trump Win Validated by Quantum Blockchain System Recount of Votes

This is off course the boot we have been waiting four years to drop.  during all this the silence has steadily increased with occasional glimpses of enforcement action here and there. most recently we see P Diddy been searched.

what makes it so hard is that we only have the silences.  at least the DEEP STATE  war in the Ukraine and Gaza are winding down although we may see a crushing Ukrainian defeat before it is all over.

Again understand this is a global WAR and leaders are cooperating to demolish the Global NWO.  We are watching them go down.  Gitmo is busy.  nothing has slowed down at all..

It was rumored that the Supreme Court has ruled on three cases concerning 2020 Voter Fraud brought by the Brunson Brothers, Sidney Powell and the State of Florida. 46 out of the 50 States have now recounted the 2020 Presidential Election vote and confirmed that Biden lost the election, with Trump winning by over 80% in every state but one. A positive ruling by the Supreme Court on any, or all of the above cases would automatically dissolve the Biden Administration and all of Congress, plus bring in Martial Law until a new election could be held. The SCOTUS announcement was expected at any time.

Trump Win Validated by Quantum Blockchain System Recount of Votes

Sunday, November 8, 2020 15:01

By Judy Byington

A recount of voting ballots nationwide was being done by elite units of the National Guard by early Sun. morning 8 Nov. To prevent fraud official ballots had been printed with an invisible, unbreakable code watermark and registered on a Quantum Blockchain System.

As of this writing, in five states 14 million ballots had been put through a laser scanner – 78% of which failed because there was no watermark to verify the ballot. Of those that failed 100% had checked for Biden.

An initial test showed that according to water marks on validated ballots fed into the Quantum Computer, Trump won re-election by over 80% of the legal ballot cast. The final validated vote tallied in that test: Trump 73.5 million votes to Biden’s 25.9 million – and that didn’t even account for Trump votes that people observed being tossed and never accounted for.

Interesting enough, those figures corresponded with the two men’s Twitter accounts: Trump had 88.8 million followers to Biden’s 16.6 million.

Using ‘infra red’ equipment that read which ballots were real, or fake the elite National Guardsmen had been deployed to the twelve targeted states of Alabama, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Texas, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Washington, Virginia, Delaware, Illinois and Kentucky. In all nationwide, over 500 National Guardsmen were on guard over all ballot counting units.

There was much more to the tests for fraudulent voting. In addition to the watermark these official ballots also contained ink made of corn, which created an electronic radiation circuit ID that could trace the location of that ballot through GPS transmission. In other words, they could trace if the ballot was filled out by the person named on the ballot.

The Trump team would be filing a number of lawsuits on Mon. 9 Nov. They had been preparing for this for a long time under an election fraud investigation called Project Veritas.

Judicial Watch: “Our new study shows 1.8M excess, or ‘ghost’ voters in 353 counties across 29 states. The data highlights the recklessness of mailing blindly ballots/ballot applications to voter registration lists,”

Compound Found in Broccoli Could Help Dissolve Blood Clots and Prevent Stroke

Interesting and what is indicated is that the chemistry supports our known therapies.  All good and supports making broccoli more present in our meals.

all these cabbage based vegetables respond well to fine processing with a food processor.  The natural sugars are well released and i sort of wonder why we do not add lemon juice as well and make it an important part of a bowl of sashimi or are we doing this by accident already?

.then of course we have fermentation which we are also finally rediscovering.

Compound Found in Broccoli Could Help Dissolve Blood Clots and Prevent Stroke

Sulforaphane, a natural chemical found in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, could potentially revolutionize the treatment of stroke.

Researchers from the Heart Research Institute (HRI) in Australia have found that a common vegetable eaten by millions every day may be able to prevent and treat a leading cause of death worldwide.

The study, published in the journal ACS Central Science, shows results from a three-year investigation into how a natural chemical found in broccoli can help dissolve blood clots and improve the action of a common clot-busting drug used to treat an acute ischemic stroke.

Current Stroke TreatmentEvery 40 seconds, someone in the United States suffers a stroke. In 2021, strokes accounted for one in every six deaths from cardiovascular disease.

There are two types of strokes: ischemic and hemorrhagic. An ischemic stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain is obstructed by a clot, while a hemorrhagic stroke results when a weakened vessel in the brain ruptures and causes bleeding inside the brain. According to the American Heart Association, ischemic stroke accounts for 87 percent of all strokes.

The only drug currently available to treat an acute ischemic stroke is tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), a thrombolytic agent that breaks up blood clots and restores adequate blood flow to the brain. Unfortunately, tPA comes with severe limitations and potential dangers, including bleeding into the brain with up to a 45 percent fatality rate when this occurs.

Xuyu Liu, the study’s lead researcher, who holds a doctorate in chemical biology, stated on the HRI website in 2022: “Current treatments are a double-edged sword—by clearing blood clots, it also means a patient has an increased risk of bleeding in the brain should they need emergency surgery. We are looking for clues in nature to find this magic anti-clotting drug which can work where it’s needed but also still allow patients to have antithrombotic treatments.”

HRI researchers discovered that the natural chemical in broccoli, sulforaphane, may improve the performance of tPA and could lead to newer, safer, and more effective medications for acute stroke.

“We know eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and foods low in saturated fats can help prevent heart disease and stroke, but can some of these same vegetables treat and reverse stroke? I think it can and my team is working to prove it at the molecular level,” Mr. Liu said in the 2022 HRI interview.

Sulforaphane’s Protective PropertiesIn an Australian radio interview, Mr. Liu said his team began investigating broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables three years ago by screening a library of over 100 natural products from healthy diets to find something with properties that would prevent blood clots in the brain.

Mr. Liu’s background included finding ways to prevent cancer with a healthy diet, but when he transitioned into his current role at the HRI, he decided to study sulforaphane derived from cruciferous vegetables and how it could potentially treat blood clots in the circulatory system.

According to Mr. Liu, sulforaphane isn’t limited to broccoli. In the radio interview, he said that cruciferous vegetables produce sulforaphane as a protective mechanism against insects or other types of destruction.

For instance, an intact piece of broccoli doesn’t contain sulforaphane. It isn’t until it’s chopped or chewed that it undergoes a chemical reaction that produces sulforaphane. Sulforaphane’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are designed to protect the plant, but when ingested by humans, studies have found sulforaphane has numerous anti-cancer and health-protective qualities.

Results and Next Steps“What we found in a preclinical trial is that the tPA success rate increases to 60 per cent [sic] when the medication is given with the broccoli-derived [sulforaphane],” Mr. Liu said in an HRI interview. “Excitingly, this naturally occurring compound does not cause any signs of bleeding, which is a common side effect associated with blood-thinning agents tested in stroke treatment.”

Preclinical testing showed that administering sulforaphane reduced the formation of blood clots while improving the action of tPA. Initial testing also found that sulforaphane could slow the onset of stroke.

“Not only is the broccoli compound effective in improving the performance of clot-busting medication after a stroke, it could be used as a preventative agent for patients who are at a high risk of stroke,” said Mr. Liu.

Mr. Liu’s next step is to raise funding for human clinical trials with the hope of developing a new preventative and anti-clotting treatment within five years. “This natural product has been used to prevent cancer before, so I think we have a strong rationale in terms of safety and other pharmacological properties,” he said in the radio interview.



this has been talked about and it has been held out as a key goal of meditation.  Yet again, why bother? Ascend to what or anything at all?  in fact it is obvious that no one actually knows. Yet meditation has been on our minds now for thousands of years.

I have been shown the physically impossible and that is  the INNER SUN.  Many others have been shown the stars and fed answers to questions by way of their spirit guides.  all this is soft ball.  Accessing the INNER SUN empowers your spirit body now operating your body.  This conveys effective youthful immortality and is a proper goal of meditation and is most likely what is meant by ascension.  Ascension means tapping the INNER SUN to sustain the body in ideal form for working on and experiencing our physical life on Earth.  This is suddenly important.

If we are going to Terraform Terra, we actually need all hands on deck.  That means over one hundred billion souls working to optimize the land, year after year.  this includes close animal husbandry and tight planned cropping as well with integrated forest grooming.

What Ascension is not is a return to the other side as we go there anyway whenever we want.  those so called examples we know about was likely a return to the future by an inserted agency.  The depiction of the ascension by Yesua is no different than his walking on water as it entails shedding gravity and rising up out of sight.

It is now clear that the greek Pantheon is a group of Atlantean masters who also ascended or mastered the Inner Sun.  all reported miracles by them or Yesua conform to what the INNER SUN implies.

we will ultimately operate in an heightened moduality like a working god of the Greek pantheon.  And live as long as we wish.

Liver Disease Patients Could See Promising Results With Baby Aspirin

This is unexpected and points also to a larger picture as well.  we already know that by the whole issue around circulatory disease is likely low level scurvy and we also add vitimin D and those aspirins.  We likely need to throw in vitimin E as well.

The good news is that it counteracts fatty liver and so does vitimin e. Again get enough.

I realized that iam sympthomatic for low vitimin E from reading all this and that should be a hint to do have a full workup done by a naturapath.

Liver Disease Patients Could See Promising Results With Baby Aspirin

A new clinical trial found that baby aspirin could reduce the amount of liver fat in patients with metabolic dysfunction-associated steatotic liver disease.


Patients suffering from metabolic-associated liver disease could benefit from low-dose aspirin.

A new clinical trial out of Boston found that baby aspirin could reduce the amount of liver fat in patients with metabolic dysfunction-associated steatotic liver disease (MASLD). The results were recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

In the small study, 80 participants between 18 and 70 were given either 81-milligram aspirin or a placebo pill. They took one pill daily for six continuous months. At the end of the trial, the participants given the low-dose aspirin experienced a 6.6 percent reduction in relative liver fat versus 3.6 percent with a placebo.

What Is MASLD?MASLD, which used to be known as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, is the most common chronic liver disease around the globe, affecting more than 30 percent of the world’s population. Steatotic liver disease happens when the body begins to store fat in the liver. Some fat in the liver is normal, but the organ may become damaged when more than 10 percent of its weight is fat. Often, excessive alcohol use is a common cause of steatotic liver disease, but MASLD occurs without overusing alcohol.

MASLD is thought to be caused by a group of related metabolic disorders involving high body mass index, high blood lipid levels, high blood pressure, and diabetes. These health markers influence one another and often change how the body metabolizes nutrients and stores fats.

An individual’s diet and nutrition likely influence liver disease that develops without excessive alcohol use. According to the Cleveland Clinic, diets high in fructose may increase a person’s chance of developing MASLD. The reason? High fructose consumption is linked to metabolic syndrome, a cluster of conditions that raises a person’s risk of developing heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, stroke, and more.

Genetics may also have a role in why a person develops MASLD.

While the condition is common, MASLD doesn’t usually present with symptoms. Symptoms typically don’t begin to arise until MASLD progresses to metabolic dysfunction-associated steatohepatitis (MASH). With MASH, patients often experience inflammation in the upper right abdomen, swelling, and pain in the liver’s location.

Steatohepatitis is the main complication of MASLD. One in five people with MASLD develop MASH, in which the liver is chronically inflamed. When the liver is in a state of constant inflammation, it puts a person at risk of developing cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver.

Additionally, women with MASLD who are trying to get pregnant may experience complications. MASLD in pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of complications for both the mother and the fetus. For example, pregnant women with MASLD are between three and four times more likely to experience hypertensive complications, such as preeclampsia.

Baby Aspirin Potentially a Simple SolutionThere is no treatment to reverse fatty liver disease, though the U.S. Food and Drug Administration just approved the first-ever drug to treat MASLD alongside lifestyle changes on March 14. Typically, physicians prescribe a change in diet and activity levels to combat the condition. According to the Cleveland Clinic, patients can often slow or reverse the accumulation of fat in the liver by managing other metabolic factors, including weight, cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure. People must lose at least 3 percent to 5 percent of their body weight before seeing results in the liver.

Unfortunately, once MASH becomes cirrhosis of the liver and scarring occurs, the damage becomes permanent. Certain medications are available to control the progression of certain types of cirrhosis.

Taking a low dose of aspirin could be key to reducing fat in the liver and, thus, discouraging the progression of liver disease, according to the new research. Aspirin is inexpensive, and study participants experienced few adverse events.

“Compared with placebo, aspirin treatment significantly reduced relative hepatic fat content,” the researchers wrote.

The research team did note that a larger clinical trial is warranted for additional information on the medication’s efficacy, as this was only a preliminary trial

Claims that All Satellites Are Merely at High-Altitude’

This is a really good question. compact devices can easily be lofted into the lower stratosphere using the wrll known balloon tech, Best of all though is that the wind is strong and constant and as observed, a train of satelites could easily circle the globe over around two days and then do it vall over again.

It is certainly super practical today and doable even back in the day.  Certainly way cheaper and reliable simply because you keep replacing them as the battery winds down.  Recall how we share cellhone tasks today and then imagine that happening fifteen miles up.

and you can see nothing.

Understand that this is now doable.  Was it doable when?

practically launching material into near earth space orbit is difficult and costly as well.  we are only now getting the tonnage needed.

Unless we do have gravity ships.

Space Is a Lucrative Business – Satellite Programs (NASA, Google, SpaceX). Who Owns the Sky?

Claims that All Satellites Are Merely at High-Altitude’

Global Research, March 26, 2024
Region: USA

In a recent article Evidence Relating to NASA Moon Landings, Unexplained Flaws: What Is Reality? What Is Illusion? I referred to evidences relating to unexplained flaws in NASA’s moon landings. Many people worldwide assert that the NASA moon landings were a fabricated hoax, and these evidences appear to support the conclusion that is was a hoax.

These topics are also detailed in my book Fake Moon Landings and the Lies of NASA.

Are the moon landings the only thing that NASA has lied about? ‘Space’ is certainly a lucrative business, as exemplified by this headline from the journal Nature The $93-billion plan to put astronauts back on the Moon[1]. As we have seen with the worldwide climate CO2 hoax science itself has been corrupted by fakery and money scams.

In this article, I examine the satellite programs of government space agencies and companies; including the subject of satellite-balloon launches.

There are 74 different government space agencies in existence worldwide.

It appears that space agencies have received hundreds of billions, actually trillions of dollars, of taxpayer’s money over the decades.

Based on the cost per kilogram listed below, a space agency satellite launch over the past decades could typically cost (the taxpayer) over €50 million, and up to, and well in excess of, €500 million per launch, depending on the project. Given that thousands of satellites have been launched, and the expense to the taxpayers of the US and the world, let us take closer look at the subject.
The Satellite Communication System

It is commonly believed that modern-day data, internet, and voice communications utilise thousands of satellites that supposedly exist hundreds of miles, even thousands of miles, in orbit above the Earth. It is claimed that geo-stationary satellites are about 20,000 miles above the earth. The image below is typical of the images of satellites that we are presented with on TV and by space agencies worldwide.

Government space agencies include the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) of the United States, the European Space Agency (ESA) which coordinates for more than 20 constituent countries, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the Roscosmos State Corporation for Space Activities (Roscosmos) of Russia, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), and the China National Space Agency (CNSA).

“As of 2024, 74 different government space agencies are in existence… Government space agencies are established by governments of countries or regional groupings of countries to establish a means for advocating for and/or engaging in activities related to outer space, exploitation of space systems, and space exploration. Initial competencies demonstrated include funding and nomination of a candidate to serve as astronaut, cosmonaut, or taikonaut with the countries/organizations executing human spaceflight solutions. Other demonstrated capabilities include operation of a satellite (e.g. a communications or remote sensing system) largely developed and/or delivered by a third party, domestic development of a satellite system, and capacity to recover a science payload from a sub-orbital or orbital mission.”

We are told that space communication takes place between these numerous satellites. For example, see the image below is sourced from the European Space Agency (ESA). The image is titled ESA – EDRS-C SpaceData Highway. The image portrays data being transmitted through space by satellites that are purported to be orbiting the earth.

In addition, there are supposed to be so many satellites, and so much debris from rockets, orbiting the Earth that we are told there is even a problem of space junk akin to the image below.

Claims that satellites are not at the altitude we have been told, and that lucrative satellite launches by government space agencies have been a money scam?

Okay, it all looks good and communication systems work worldwide, so what is there to investigate about these satellites one might ask?

Why do some people say that satellites are a hoax? It should be relatively easy to prove the existence of satellites orbiting the Earth surely?

After all, we are told satellites take many detailed photos of the earth, so surely, satellites can take pictures of the other satellites?

NASA and the network of space agencies claim that satellites are hundreds, or even thousands of miles, above us in space, orbiting the Earth. On the other hand, the so-called conspiracy theorists claim that no satellites are actually in space, but all have been launched via satellite balloon programs are merely in high altitude of 60,000 to around 200,000 feet, i.e., between 11 to about 40 miles above the Earth. In this article I take a closer look at this claim. (We are told that space begins about 100 km above the Earth, about 62 miles or about 328,000 feet).

The so-called conspiracy theorists claim that ‘satellites in space’ is a lie that has been taught to you without a single piece of proof; and that NASA and its military programs, and other space agencies worldwide, are at the heart of this hoax. These space agencies receive billions of our tax monies so, surely, it should be relatively easy for these agencies to prove that ‘satellites are in space’. On the other hand, could it possibly be that ‘satellites in space’ (like the fake NASA moon landings described in this article) are just another hoax of modern scientism? A hoax in which hundreds of billions of funds has been channelled to the liars?

First, let us take a look at one of the many videos in circulation online that claim ‘satellites in space’ is a hoax. This video is rather entertaining and is in the form of a song.

We are meant to believe that man-made satellites have existed in space (in Earth orbit) for decades.

A NASA article updated in 2017, describes that the Soviet Union developed the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, and launched it into Earth’s orbit in 1957.

Let us take a closer look at whether what we have been presented with by space agencies, reflects the reality on the ground – or in this case ‘the reality in space’.

1. These images of satellites in space orbiting the Earth that we are presented with by space agencies all appear to be computer generated images (CGI), i.e., they are not real pictures. If satellites are really in space there should be thousands of ‘actual’ pictures of satellites in space taken by other satellites, however, all such pictures appear to be CGI. For example, this 2022 illustration depicts the Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) satellite with solar arrays fully deployed, but where is a real picture of this satellite? According to NASA/JPL-Caltech it is designed to provide high-resolution measurements of the water on Earth’s surface.

[Aside: On a related topic, I note that NASA have actually admitted that all images of the Earth itself supposedly taken from space are actually composites of multiple images, see this article for more information.]

2. The technical capabilities of satellites were in existence using ground-based low technology methods, and high-altitude air balloons, decades before any space program.

As detailed below in this article, the US government used high altitude air balloons before, and during, World War II to implement all the functions that are now attributed to satellites; and also had a satellite-balloon program in the 1950s. Why would you spend billions of dollars on launching thousands of satellites when the exact same function can be adequately achieved with much less expense using arrays of ground-based towers, and high-altitude helium balloons (or high-altitude planes and drones) that are hundreds of miles closer to the earth?

3. For decades data was transported by radio towers and submarine cables, and still is.

Now let is take a look at a system called LORAN, short for long range navigation. LORAN was a hyperbolic radio navigation system developed in the United States during World War II.

See also a description of LORAN on Wikipedia. Wikipedia states:

“By the 1970s, the cost, weight and size of electronics needed to implement Loran-C had been dramatically reduced because of the introduction of solid-state electronics and, from the mid-1970s, early microcontrollers to process the signal. Low-cost and easy-to-use Loran-C units became common from the late 1970s, especially in the early 1980s, and the earlier LORAN[a] system was discontinued in favor of installing more Loran-C stations around the world. Loran-C became one of the most common and widely-used navigation systems for large areas of North America, Europe, Japan and the entire Atlantic and Pacific areas. The Soviet Union operated a nearly identical system, CHAYKA. The introduction of civilian satellite navigation in the 1990s led to a rapid drop-off in Loran-C use.”

4. If ground-based LORAN was inexpensive as stated on Wikipedia then why would you go to the huge expense of launching thousands of communications satellites hundreds of miles into space?

Wikipedia states that “The introduction of civilian satellite navigation in the 1990s led to a rapid drop-off in Loran-C use.” We are meant to believe that one of the main advantages of the move to launch satellites into orbit in the first place in the 1990s was expense. However, it appears this reason of expense does not add up.

However, if ground-based LORAN was inexpensive as Wikipedia admits then why ‘on Earth’ would you go to the expense of launching thousands of communications satellites, which are heavy objects about the size of a car, to an altitude over 100 km above the Earth? Is that really what has taken place? Where is the evidence that this ever actually occurred? Where are the photos of satellites in space that are not CGI?

According to an article on the subject of the aerospace business published by McKinsey and Company[3]:

“To serve an expanding space economy, nearly 7,500 active satellites orbit Earth and about 50 on average are taking to the skies every week. Many operate as part of multi-satellite constellations—serving commercial applications from remote sensing to communications to navigation. Governments are also expanding their satellite fleets for multiple missions. The price of heavy launches to low-Earth orbit (LEO) has fallen from $65,000 per kilogram to $1,500 per kilogram—more than a 95 percent decrease.”

How can the cost of a satellite launch have decreased by 95% in recent times? Could it be that the cost of satellite launches were never that expensive in the first place? and that 95% of the satellite launch price has been a money scam for decades?

5. High-altitude satellite balloons are relatively inexpensive in comparison to launching a satellite hundreds of miles above the Earth.

Another fact-checking website would have us believe that satellites in Earth orbit are real, yet admits “satellites can cost hundreds of millions of dollars to launch”, but that “high-altitude balloons can be relatively inexpensive”[4]. The website states:

“High-altitude surveillance balloons have been used since World War II. Modern surveillance balloons typically hover around 80,000 to 120,000 feet above ground, according to Reuters. The majority of satellites orbiting Earth do so at altitudes between roughly 100 and 1,243 miles, although some satellites are as far as 22,370 miles away… Thousands of satellites orbit Earth, according to NASA… While satellites can cost hundreds of millions of dollars to launch, high-altitude balloons can be relatively inexpensive.”

Could it be that all satellites launched into ‘outer space’ and Earth orbit were actually only launched into high-altitude as high-altitude satellite balloons? Where is the evidence to say otherwise? A video of a satellite launch is not evidence that the satellite orbits the Earth. Where are the images of the satellites in space that are not CGI?

Also to be considered is that there are massive problems related to aerodynamic stability the higher up you go, and that the rockets used to launch satellites are very heavy objects. I note that various analysts have asserted that anything over about one tonne weight cannot stay in the sky and retain its aerodynamic stability without quickly spinning out of control, unless it is being powered by an engine, or being harnessed on a balloon.

6. Google’s project Loon – satellites on high-altitude helium balloons

According to National Geographic[5]:

Google’s Project Loon aims to bring remote parts of the globe online with a ring of floating balloons. The balloons will drift through the stratosphere—which is about twice as high as commercial planes fly—to deliver 3G service to off-the-grid areas… Coverage with a network of stratospheric platforms may be cheaper than satellites and more flexible as well—the better to be deployed quickly where and when the platforms are needed… In October 2012, the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command tested the Combat SkySat military retransmission platform in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Balloons floating at 80,000 and 30,000 feet established a handheld radio communications link from 150 miles away.”

The article describes that Google’s LOON balloons, which appear to be floating at over 30,000 feet powered by some type of solar array, “may be cheaper than launching satellites” into orbit hundreds of miles above the Earth. Logically, then one asks why would anyone launch, or even attempt to launch, thousands of satellites hundreds of miles above the Earth in the first place? where is the evidence that this ever actually took place?

7. SpaceX Starlink satellites seen below the clouds – not in Earth orbit

It has been reported that SpaceX, a company owned by Elon Musk, launched 52 satellites into orbit on September 24, 2022. A video on SpaceX’s website shows footage of the satellite launch. We are meant to believe that these SpaceX satellites are in Earth orbit at 550 km above the Earth. According to Wikipedia[6]:

“Starlink is a satellite internet constellation operated by American aerospace company SpaceX, providing coverage to over 70 countries… SpaceX started launching Starlink satellites in 2019. As of early March 2024, it consists of over 6,000 mass-produced small satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO)[5] that communicate with designated ground transceivers. Nearly 12,000 satellites are planned to be deployed, with a possible later extension to 42,000… The Internet communication satellites were expected to be in the smallsat-class of 100 to 500 kg (220 to 1,100 lb)-mass, and were intended to be in low Earth orbit (LEO) at an altitude of approximately 1,100 km (680 mi), according to early public releases of information in 2015. In the event, the first large deployment of 60 satellites in May 2019 were 227 kg (500 lb)[46] and SpaceX decided to place the satellites at a relatively low 550 km (340 mi), due to concerns about the space environment.”

A friend and I witnessed what appeared to be one of the Starlink ‘satellite trains’ travelling across the evening/early night sky in Ireland in 2020. These satellites appeared to be at high altitude similar to, or not much higher than, an aircraft, perhaps at around 60,000 feet altitude. Certainly not hundreds, or thousands of miles, in outer space. The following is a video of a Starlink satellite train travelling across the night sky in the UK – note that you can clearly see (two minutes into the video) that the satellite train is below the clouds and therefore not in space.

8. Declassified documents describe NASA’s satellite balloon program of the 1950s (satellites harnessed to helium balloons) – claims that all satellite programs have actually been balloon programs (satelloons) since the 1940s.

It has been asserted in various video presentations that the entire satellite program worldwide has always been a balloon program, and was in existence prior to NASA’s rocket program. The video below is an example of the many videos dedicated to this subject, just don’t depend on your google algorithm to find such videos. The main internet platforms all use algorithms and AI to present you with the government space agency narrative you are expected to accept.

The researcher in this presentation goes on to describe a document indicating that numerous satellite projects and NASA projects, including the MIR ‘space station’, were all actually launched via balloon from the Esrange space center in Sweden, i.e., not launched via a rocket as NASA claim. If this is true then there was nothing in the nose cone of those NASA rockets that were launched.

The following video shows some instances of satellite ballon crashes, and a satellite-ballon passing in front of the moon[7]:

9. Many of us have experienced being in a remote location without a mobile phone signal due to being a long distance from a cell phone tower, or, perhaps, due to the signal being blocked by a hill or a mountain. Satellite phones can be used in such instances. We are told the satellite phone gets its signal from a satellite constellation in space; and are connected to an outer space network of satellites, and can get continuous coverage even in the most remote places on Earth where cell networks don’t reach[8]. Satellite phones are more powerful phones that significantly boost the power of the signal. Does it not make more sense logically and financially that a satellite phone, rather than communicating with a satellite that is hundreds of miles away in space, is simply communicating with a high-altitude satellite ballon that is at around 60,000 feet (only about 6 to 12 miles above you); or indeed, managing to communicate with the nearest cell-phone tower due to emitting a more powerful signal?

10. Satellites, NASA and the connection with freemasonry

Satellites were first conceived by the science-fiction writer, and freemason, Arthur C. Clarke in 1945. Soon after this the ‘scientific dictatorship’ told us that satellites had become science-fact. I further detail this scientific dictatorship in my book Godless Fake Science.

Is it just an amazing co-incidence that all the NASA astronauts that we are told landed on the moon were all freemasons too?

The NASA moon landings have been widely exposed as a hoax – nothing more than an elaborate TV show, see the book Fake Moon Landings and the Lies of NASA. According to an article[9], the faked Apollo missions were influenced by the desires of high-level freemasons and masonic lodges; and many senior officers at NASA are freemasons. In the photo below we actually see astronaut Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin holding the freemasonry flag.

It is asserted in the above referenced article that:Aldrin belonged to the Montclair Lodge. No 1444 of New Jersey, and was a 32nd Grade freemason, having received that same year the Knight Templar’s Cross;
that the Commemoration Medal of the Supreme Council of the 33rd Degree South Jurisdiction of the USA states “Our Flags on the Moon”.
that 21 of the Apollo astronauts were affiliated with freemasonry – they were freemasons or had parents who were freemasons.
and the head of NASA during the Apollo Program C, Fred Kleinknecht, was a freemason – Sovereign Grand Commander of the 33rd Grade Supreme Council of the Old and Accepted Scottish Rite – Southern District of the US – for 18 years.

It appears that even the masons admit most of the NASA astronauts are freemasons. According to the website of the freemasonry Grand Lodge of British Columbia and Yukon[10]:

“Freemasons have always been at the forefront of the scientific community; from the founding of the British Royal Society to today’s NASA programme in the United States.”

The freemason website referenced above also provides an incomplete list of freemasons “who have contributed to the exploration of outer space”. This list includes the following NASA administrators, astronauts, and scientists. Edwin E. “Buzz” Aldrin, Jr. — Gemini XII, Apollo 11
Leroy Gordon Cooper, Jr. — Mercury 9, “Faith 7”, Gemini V
Donn F. Eisele — Apollo 7
John H. Glenn, Jr. — Mercury 6, “Friendship 7”
Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom — Mercury 4 “Liberty Bell 7”, Gemini 3, Apollo 1
James Irwin — Apollo 15
Edgar D. Mitchell — Apollo 14
Walter M. Schirra, Jr. — Mercury 8 “Sigma 7”, Gemini VI, Apollo 7
Thomas P. Stafford — Gemini VII, Gemini IX-A, Apollo 10, Apollo 18
Paul J. Weitz — Skylab 2, Challenger (STS-6)
Clark C. McClelland — ScO, Space Shuttle Fleet
James Edwin Webb — NASA University 1961-68
Kenneth S. Kleinknecht — Apollo Program, Gemini Program, Project Mercury.

It is also asserted in the above referenced article that Aldrin sent the letter below to the freemasonry Sovereign Grand Commander, Luther A. Smith:

In addition, I note that various authors over the decades maintain there is a connection between elements of the Jewish banking, political, and mega-corporate power structure, and the top-levels of freemasonry. Could this be true? More information on this subject is available in the historical archives[11]. Is it just a co-incidence the Jewish Hebrew word ‘nāšā’ means ‘to deceive’?[12].

“Masonry is based on Judaism. Eliminate the teachings of Judaism [Jewish Talmudism] from the masonic ritual and what is left?” – Jewish Tribune of New York newspaper, October 28th 1927

“It has ever been universally admitted by the order, that to part Masonry and Judaism is impossible; in fact, to use a well known axiom amongst is, “Judaism is Masonry, and Masonry is Judaism”.” – Excerpt from The Jewish Chronicle, the world’s oldest Jewish newspaper.

A separate, but related issue is commercialisation of the airwaves – who own the sky?

The USA, like almost all countries, licences parts of the radio spectrum for domestic use, and it reserved chunks for television, satellites, cellular telephones, digital radio and the like. Governments worldwide typically auction licences to the highest bidder. However, many people assert[13] that the airwaves should be free for all users and the government cannot sell what it does not own.

Governments are supposed to protect the public interest. However, it is obvious that governments are not ensuring that local broadcasters are not ousted by national ones or mega-corporate ones; and it clear that a mega-corporate monopoly has control of the airwaves, with most radio, TV, and internet platforms parroting the same globalist mantras and ideologies. Any one that challenges the (often fake and fabricated) corporate news is apparently extremely dangerous to our democracy – translation “extremely dangerous to this corporate-communist totalitarian monopoly”.


Corporate-funded factchecking websites will tell you that satellites exist in space, and that the assertion that all satellites are on high-altitude balloons is false.

However, who factchecks the factcheckers? If satellites are merely harnessed to high-altitude balloons and are not in outer space as we have been led to believe, then the vast amount of taxpayers funding that has been channelled to space agencies is based on lie; and these organisations have been operating a hugely profitable scam in which the real cost of launching satellites is much less than they claim.

Along with the fake moon landings, the fake Covid pandemic, fake manmade climate change etc., can we add ‘satellites in space’ to the list of scams of the world scientific dictatorship?

A dictatorship that has been in operation, in particular, since the Federal Reserve coup of 1913, and involves selective funding and the subversion of real science.

See also my book Demonic Economics and the Tricks of the Bankers. It appears we are living through a scientific dictatorship of lies – yet, faced with the spirit of truth this matrix is crumbling.
