Microplastics in the environment produced by decomposition of globally increasing waste plastics have become a dominant component of both water and air pollution. To examine the potential toxicological effects of microplastics on human cells, the cultured human alveolar A549 cells were exposed to polystyrene microplastics (PS-MPs) of 1 and 10 μm diameter as a model of the environmental contaminants. Both sizes caused a significant reduction in cell proliferation but exhibited little cytotoxicity, as measured by the maintenance of cell viabilities determined by trypan blue staining and by Calcein-AM staining. The cell viabilities did not drop below 93% even at concentrations of PS-MPs as high as 100 μg/mL. Despite these high viabilities, further assays revealed a population level decrease in metabolic activity parallel in time with a dramatic decrease in proliferation rate in PS-MP exposed cells. Furthermore, phase contrast imaging of live cells at 72 h revealed major changes in the morphology of cells exposed to microplastics, as well as the uptake of multiple 1 μm PS-MPs into the cells. Confocal fluorescent microscopy at 24 h of exposure confirmed the incorporation of 1 μm PS-MPs. These disturbances at the proliferative and cytoskeletal levels of human cells lead us to propose that airborne polystyrene microplastics may have toxicologic consequences. This is the first report of exposure of human cells to an environmental contaminant resulting in the dual effects of inhibition of cell proliferation and major changes in cell morphology. Our results make clear that human exposure to microplastic pollution has significant consequence and potential for harm to humans.
The Alex Jones Channel – Trumps Orb Is Nothing More Than A TV Remote For Giant Threat Fusion Center
Donald Trump touches glowing orb to open anti-terrorism centre – video
The US president, Donald Trump, and a number of Saudi Arabian regional leaders visit the new Global Centre for Combating Extremist Ideology in Riyadh on Sunday. The heart of the centre is a giant wall filled with screens displaying real-time online extremist activity. Trump, the Saudi king, Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, the Egyptian president, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, and Melania Trump placed their hands on a miniature globe, officially activating the centre and launching a futuristic welcome video

Israeli News Live – Did Isaiah Prophesy of World Leaders Contacting Aliens? www.IsraeliNewsLive.org
This is beyond provocative it seems the demons as many believe to be Aliens will try one last effort to find mercy from the Creator, Our eternal father. This may be what causes the showing of the Antichrist, the man of sin to be revealed. But Isaiah goes much deeper, he even speaks about how these demons have tried to alter humans to prevent us from having our own relationship with Yeshua. As Isaiah says their rivers have spolied the land. Jeremiah ask why have we forsaken the fountains of living water. Now the Demons will come up on Mount Zion with a gift hoping God will receive them

Israeli News Live – Norwegian Special Forces Enter Syria
Norwegian troops have entered Syria via Iraq’s western border with Syria. The special forces will be joining US and British forces already supporting the Free Syrian Army fighting against the Syrian forces. Germany eyes a Jordanian military base to move forces to claiming Turkey obstructing access to the Incirlik airbase. No doubt a good excuse while NATO prepares to take down Damascus.
The Official Hagmann & Hagmann Report – Revisionist Investigation: Liz Crokin, Diamond & Silk, Steve Quayle and Dr Michael Lake
Steve is the former editor and publisher of Survival Quest and Security and Survival Chronicles – monthly newsletters which dealt with perilous events and how to prepare for them.
For the past seven years, Quayle has articulated the need for Americans to be aware of bioterrorism and weapons of mass destruction. Upon publication of Breathe No Evil, Quayle upstaged mainstream media by years spelling out detailed effects of bioterrorism. Prior to publication of Breathe No Evil, Quayle went on record predicting a major chemical or biological attack in a large world city. Three weeks later, the Aum Shinrikyo cult released nerve gas in the Tokyo subway.
Steve continues to shout from the rooftops, his concern for the massive loss of life due to lack of civil defense and preparation in the public and private sectors. Breathe No Evil was written as an antidote for fear informing people of the necessary steps to take prior to biological and chemical terrorism.

The Schumann resonances (SR) are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth’s electromagnetic field spectrum. Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, generated and excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere.

Scientists Discover That Fasting Triggers Stem Cell Regeneration & Fights Cancer
A study published in Cell Stem Cell shows that cycles of prolonged fasting not only protect against immune system damage — a major side effect of chemotherapy — but also induce immune system regeneration, shifting stem cells from a dormant state to a state of self-renewal.
In both mice and a Phase 1 human clinical trial involving patients receiving chemotherapy, long periods of not eating significantly lowered white blood cell counts. In mice, fasting cycles then “flipped a regenerative switch,” changing the signaling pathways for hematopoietic stem cells, which are responsible for the generation of blood and immune systems, the research showed.
“We could not predict that prolonged fasting would have such a remarkable effect in promoting stem cell-based regeneration of the hematopoietic system.”
The study has major implications for healthier aging, in which immune system decline contributes to increased susceptibility to disease as people age. By outlining how prolonged fasting cycles — periods of no food for two to four days at a time over the course of six months — kill older and damaged immune cells and generate new ones, the research also has implications for chemotherapy tolerance and for those with a wide range of immune system deficiencies, including autoimmunity disorders.
