Costa Rica is has been running on 100% renewable energy for the past 3 months this will give great benefits to soil and population
Costa Rica in the Caribbean with a population of less than 5 million has for the last 75 days provided energy to its population entirely from renewable sources. This is excellent in terms of the environmental cost, as coal fired stations fill the air with pollution and the run off from the process of producing the energy included heavy metals, which leach into the waterways and will have a detrimental effect on human consumption.
The country doesn’t have massive industry and relies on tourism and agriculture to support its economy. Also the geography of the area means it’s covered with dense forest and lots of volcanoes, which lend itself to geothermal energy.
The country pledged in 2011 to be carbon neutral by 2021. And with much of its energy being provided by renewable sources it is set to reach this target. So far Costa Rica provides 88% of its energy through sources like solar, geothermal form the volcanoes and hydroelectricity.
In 2014 the government pledged $958 million to further developing Geothermal energy.
The recent heavy downpours have been the source of the ‘ clean energy’ where this has enabled four hydroelectric power facilities recently to switch to renewable sources rather than burn fossil fuels to generate electricity, from the months of January, February and March.
Without coal and pollution, it will be interesting to see the effect on the national health of the population in Costa Rica over the next few years as a result of food and crops not being subject to excess air pollution and also the run off into rivers and waterways causing a build up of heavy metals in people who consume fruit and veg from areas where power stations are.
The Doctor who beat the GMC against Vaccines
A 3 year court case involving a UK GP and the British General Medical Council resulted in surprising results.
Dr. Jayne Donegan, a UK GP began her medical career being strong advocate for vaccinations. However after looking into the details and doing her own research she now speaks out against the dangers of vaccinations. This resulted in her being taken to court regarding her opinions by the General Medical Council.
Dr Donegan trained as a conventional medical doctor, qualifying from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School, University of London, in 1983, during this time she took postgraduate training in Obstetrics & Gynecology, Family Planning, Child Health, Orthopedics, Emergency Medicine and General Practice.
At the time she had the view that parents who didn’t want to vaccinate their children were irresponsible, as she was taught at medical school that people who used to die in their thousands or hundreds of thousands from diseases like diphtheria, whooping cough and measles – diseases for which there are vaccines – stopped dying because of the introduction of vaccines. She was also taught that diseases like typhus, cholera, rheumatic and scarlet fever, stopped causing issues as social and economic conditions improved as did the disease prevalence and at the time didn’t make the connection.
Through a chance encounter with a nurse and her own child being vaccinated with an out of date BCG jab, which gave her child a reaction, as well as scare mongering about measles ‘epidemics’ from her own profession, she began to question vaccinations. When she was told that children needed 3 shots of the vaccination for Measles, Mumps and Rubella, the MMR, in 1994, alarm bells started to ring. She started to look at the data for disease deaths from the Department of Health and Office for National Statistics (ONS) from the middle of the nineteenth century, when we started keeping records, until now and made a link between improving living conditions and reducing disease deaths. She studied graphs featured in the Department of Health Green Book and concluded that they were not a good or clear way of showing the changes in mortality (death) and incidence of disease that occurred before and after vaccination was introduced against these diseases.
She found a similar situation with Measles: the Department of Health Green Book features a graph that does not start until the 1940s. There appears to be great drop in the number of cases after the measles vaccine was introduced in 1968, but looking at a graph which goes back to the 1800s you can see that the death rate – death being the worst-case complication of a disease – had dropped by 99 percent by the time the vaccine was put on the schedule.
Armed with this information and her views, 2 parents sought her out in 2002 where she was involved in the High Court, where two mothers were fighting their ex-partners about their children’s vaccinations. The mothers did not want them to be given to their children – under any circumstances – for fear of causing irreversible harm, but the fathers did, so a controversial court case ensued.
Dr. Donegan gave her professional opinion that the safety and efficacy of vaccines has not been well studied and that there were other ways of achieving health than vaccination for these children.
Dr. Donegan ended up being accused of “serious professional misconduct” which could have had a detrimental effect on her medical career. They served her official papers in 2004, but it took three long years of writing reports and going through hundreds of medical documents and studies before the case was finally heard in 2007.
After almost three years of legal issues the GMC panel in Manchester came to this conclusion:
“The Panel were sure that at no stage did you allow any views that you held to overrule your duty to the court and to the litigants.”
“You demonstrated to the Panel that your reports did not derive from your deeply held views and your evidence supported this. You explained to the Panel that your approach in your report was to provide the court with an alternative view based on the material you produced in your references. That material was largely drawn from publications that were in fact in favor of immunisation.”
“It was clear from your evidence and the evidence of your witness that your aim is to direct parents to sources of information about immunisation and child health safety to help them to make informed choices.”
“You told us that there are many books by doctors and others in this and other countries who seriously question vaccination and they cite a lot of history, proofs, and medical papers to support their arguments. You did not use any of those publications because you did not think that the GMC would regard those as satisfactory support or references for your recommendations. You largely used what was available in refereed medical journals.
The Panel is sure that in the reports you provided you did not fail to be objective, independent, and unbiased.”
“Accordingly, the Panel found that you are not guilty of serious professional misconduct.”
Like the issue of the recent CDC whistle-blower in regards to fraud and fudging figures as so to not show that African American boys are more susceptibility to Autism, you won’t have seen this information in the mainstream press as there tends to be a ‘Whitewash’ in this area!
Dr Jayne Donegan is one of the few doctors who now uses Natural Medicine to complement her work. She is a Homeopathic Physician and also give lectures around the country.

Seeking all Therapists – Practitioners wanted throughout the UK for Freedom4Health day on 3rd June
Freedom4Health is launching a Natural Health Care Day on 3rd June to give the broad public an opportunity to learn more about different natural health possibilities and to promote the many benefits of natural health.

We believe that anyone should have the right to readily available information on a wide range of natural health modalities and to choose his or her own method of health care which should, as a broad principle, be supported by the NHS.
Not only are they mostly non-intrusive, do not use pharmaceutical drugs or have harmful side-effects, they will also save our failing healthcare system, the NHS, millions if not billions of pounds when used in the appropriate circumstances.
As it is, information on natural health choices is often put down or repressed by vested interests. On Fredom4Health Day, as a practitioner, if you would like to participate you will agree to give a free introductory consultation (length of time is up to you) to members of the public that request this. You’ll be able to maintain contact with the person thereafter, should they wish you to do so, and provide any further service they request.
We will promote this through our newsletter and social media as well as endeavour to promote this widely in national media and in a variety of other ways.
All we ask is that you sign up to become a member of Freedom4Health, which you can do on our website or by sending an email.
Who is the healthiest and most unhealthy in the world according o recent studies.
African countries have some of the best diets in the world, according to a new study
A study recently puts African countries such as Chad and Mali as one of the world healthiest in terms of the diets they eat, The flip side of that is the worst diets in the world are from the people in European countries including Belgium, Latvia and Hungary.
This information comes from a study commissioned and recorded by The lancet global health journal. It looked at over 4.5 billion adults in over 187 countries across the world.
Overall healthy diets have increased worldwide, however countries in the west were seen to be increasingly eating unhealthy items of food like processed meat and sugary sweetened drinks. Places such as Canada, Australia, Western Europe, and the US, have some of the poorest quality diets in the world, because they have the highest levels of unhealthy food consumption.
Researcher Dariush Mozaffarian said: “There is a particularly urgent need to focus on improving diet quality among poorer populations. If we do nothing, undernutrition will be rapidly eclipsed by obesity and non-communicable diseases, as is already been seen in India, China, and other middle income countries.”
