7 Famous Brands That Use Child Slaves To Make Your Chocolate
By: Vandita via anonhq.com
Children younger than 15 – some as young as 5 – work from 6 am till evening in West Africa at cocoa farms connected to Nestlé, Hershey, Mars, Kraft, ADM Cocoa, Godiva, and Fowler’s Chocolate to produce your favorite chocolates including Reese’s, Kit Kat, M&M’s, MilkyWay and Butterfinger.
In September 2015, three class action lawsuits brought in California accused Nestlé, Hershey, and Mars of turning a blind eye to human rights abuses by cocoa suppliers in West Africa while falsely portraying themselves as socially and ethically responsible. Nestlé, Cargill and ADM are currently facing a separate lawsuit brought by three Malian former child slaves in 2005 that accuses the companies of aiding and abetting child slavery in Côte d’Ivoire’s cocoa market.
The shocking 2000 documentary titled Slavery: A Global Investigation exposes the chocolate industry’s deep, dark connection to cocoa harvested by child slaves. The guardian of 19 children freed from slavery by the Ivorian authorities told the makers how they worked from dawn until dusk each day, locked in a shed at night where they were given a tin cup in which to urinate, stripped naked, tied up and routinely beaten. And how thousands of children were being purchased from their parents come from countries such as Mali, Burkina Faso, and Togo for a pittance, or in some cases outright stolen, and then shipped to Ivory Coast, where they are enslaved on cocoa farms.

Millions of Muslims take part in mass pilgrimage of Arbaeen – in spite of Isis
Isis has attacked the nearby city of Karbala using suicide bombers

Millions of Shia Muslims have taken part in one of the biggest marches in the world, as they travel through Iraq in celebration of a famous Muslim martyr.
The marchers made their way to the city of Karbala, 62 miles south west of Baghdad, on Sunday and Monday for the holy day of Arbaeen, which marks the end of a 40-day mourning period following Ashura, the religious ritual that commemorates the death of the Prophet Mohammad’s grandson Imam Hussein in 680 AD.
Large crowds visit the shrines of Imam Hussein and his half-brother Abbas in Karbala, where they were killed in a revolt against the Umayyad ruler Yazeed in the 7th century AD when they refused to pledge allegiance to Yazeed’s Umayyad caliphate.
Nusayyef al-Khattabi, who heads the Karbala provincial council, said he expected the total number of visitors over several days to range “between 17 million and 20 million”. Among them are an estimated three million foreigners, the majority Iranians who started crossing the border days ago.
Many choose to make the journey on foot, despite travelling near Isis-controlled areas in the country and the extremist group having made frequent deadly attacks on the pilgrimage.

Saga of 5-year-old Idaho girl raped by Muslim migrants gets worse
by PAMELA GELLER (PamelaGeller.com ad WND.com)
Last summer, a 5-year-old girl was orally, anally and vaginally raped and urinated upon by three Muslim migrant boys in Twin Falls, Idaho. Since then, instead of getting justice, the victim’s family has been abused by law enforcement and governing authorities as if they were the criminals – because what happened to their little girl contradicts the politically correct narrative about Muslim migrants.
And it just keeps getting worse. The victim’s mother has now informed me that, despite the huge medical expenses for their daughter that this attack has necessitated, the state of Idaho has told her the maximum assistance that her family can get is $4,500.

Fasting for three days can regenerate entire immune system, study finds
Researchers say fasting “flips a regenerative switch” which prompts stem cells to create brand new white blood cells Credit:  PEGAZ/Alamy

Fasting for as little as three days can regenerate the entire immune system, even in the elderly, scientists have found in a breakthrough described as “remarkable”.
Although fasting diets have been criticised by nutritionists for being unhealthy, new research suggests starving the body kick-starts stem cells into producing new white blood cells, which fight off infection.
Scientists at the University of Southern California say the discovery could be particularly beneficial for people suffering from damaged immune systems, such as cancer patients on chemotherapy.

10 radiation-emitting cell phone brands you need to throw out immediately

10 radiation-emitting cell phone brands you need to throw out immediately

There are two types of electromagnetic radiation:

  • Ionizing – high frequency and high energy (x-rays, cosmic rays, etc.

  • Non-ionizing – low frequency and low energy (radio frequency, power frequency, etc.)

Cell phones transmit a form of non-ionizing radiation from their antennas. This transmittance is how wireless calls and WiFi connections occur. Body tissues close to it absorb this energy. (1)
The radiation is increased during active phone calls, but the exposure continues long afterward. A study was published in 2009 that measured the pelvic bone density in 150 men, all of whom wore their phones attached to their belt for 15 hours a day for about six years. The scientists found the bone mineral density was decreased on the side of the pelvis where the cell was carried.
In one case, a woman with no predisposition for cancer became afflicted with multi-focal breast cancer. Her cancer specialists connected the dots, and the pattern and distribution of the cancerous cells outlined the shape of her cell phone. This seemed peculiar enough; then the woman explained that she is continuously tucking her phone into her bra.

Most Popular Tea Bags Contain Illegal Amounts of Deadly Pesticides (avoid these brands at all costs)

Most Popular Tea Bags Contain Illegal Amounts of Deadly Pesticides (avoid these brands at all costs)
Most  conventional tea brands  such as  Lipton, Allegro, Celestial Seasonings, Tazo, Teavana, Bigelow, Republic of Tea, Twinings, Yogi, Tea Forte, Mighty Leaf, Trader Joe’s, Tetley  contain really high levels of toxic substances such as fluoride and pesticides. We are not talking about calcium fluoride which is a natural element, but about the synthetic fluoride which is a toxic by product.  These levels are dangerously high to the point of being considered unsafe. So drinking cheap tea can be as bad as eating junk food.

Coke and Pepsi Among Major Soda Brands Hiding Alcohol Content

Coke and Pepsi Among Major Soda Brands Hiding Alcohol Content

Every can of Coke contains about 10 teaspoons of sugar—an inflammatory, an  energy sapper, and a leading cause of tooth decay—but it’s the 10mg of  alcohol in every liter that might concern consumers the most. A new  report reveals that many leading soda brands — including Coke and  Pepsi — contain a small amount of alcohol per bottle. The findings are  particularly startling for those who object alcohol for religious or  spiritual reasons and may be unknowingly consuming it through Coke and  Pepsi beverages.

French Scientists Find  Alcohol Hiding in Coke and Pepsi

On June 27, Paris-based National Institute of Consumption (INC) revealed that  half of the most popular sodas contain minute traces of alcohol  – including incredibly popular Coke and Pepsi. In addition to Coca-Cola  and Pepsi Cola, Coca-Cola Classic Light, and Coke Zero also contain the minute  alcohol content. Many cheaper supermarket versions are actually  alcohol-free.

Admittedly, 10mg per liter isn’t much (it’s about 0.001 percent alcohol).  Because the Qur’an forbids consumption of alcoholic beverages, though, some  Muslims may take issue with that small percent, even if the Committee of the  Mosque of Paris deems it still in line with their religious beliefs. Others who  have decided to abstain from alcohol may also be outraged.

So, what is alcohol doing in soda? Michel Pepin, the scientific director for  Coca-Cola France, says that traces of alcohol come from the process of making  soda rather than the initial ingredients of its secret recipe. The amount is,  however, legal. In fact, even orange juice has some alcohol because  ethanol occurs naturally in many citrus fruits, particularly toward the end of  harvest season, when the yeasts have had more time to convert sugar into  alcohol.

Massive Sugar Content Spikes  Disease Rates

Meanwhile, sugar and artificial sweetener consumption has been linked  repeatedly with obesity, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. A 2009 study even  found that almost half of high-fructose corn syrup (usually in the top two  ingredients of soda) contained toxic mercury.  So no matter how you look at it, soda is definitely a health destroyer.
