Fracking water causes Cancer: Here’s the proof

fracking causes cancer

Here’s The New Study The Fracking Industry Doesn’t Want You to See

Though fracking industry proponents scoff at any intimation their so-called vital industry poses even scant risks to the public, a new study published in Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology just proved those critics right — fracking wastewater causes cancer.

Using human bronchial epithelial cells, which are commonly used to measure the carcinogenesis of toxicants, researchers confirmed fracking flowback water from the Marcellus Shale caused the formation of malignancies. Continue reading Fracking water causes Cancer: Here’s the proof

One hour a Day on this Bike can Power your Home.

powerby Amanda Froelich on True Activist

People often complain about the high costs of energy and the fact that they “never have time to workout.” This invention certainly solves both conundrums.

And, most importantly, this free power invention has the potential to lift the 1.3 billion people who presently live without electricity out of poverty.

As Manoj Bhargava, the founder of the Free Electric hybrid bike, shares in the video above, it is possible to generate electricity at home while simply doing a daily workout routine. Continue reading One hour a Day on this Bike can Power your Home.

Kropotkin was Right: Cooperation beats Competition

New studies are proving false whole libraries that claim humans are innately selfish and cruel. Starting with a false view of Darwin’s theory of Evolution right wing leaders of opinion have built a tower of lies to justify their crimes against humanity, as argued from the beginning by the anarchist Peter Kropotkin. Humans are innately cooperative and empathetic, and this gives us the basis for a new kind of non-capitalist system. We reprint below a new article by the influential science journalist George Monbiot on these themes.

Human Kindmutual aid

new evidence shows human cooperation and empathy predominate

Fascinating new lines of research suggest that we are good people, tolerating bad things.

By  George Monbiot,

Do you find yourself thrashing against the tide of human indifference and selfishness? Are you oppressed by the sense that while you care, others don’t? That because of humankind’s callousness, civilisation and the rest of life on earth are basically stuffed? If so, you are not alone. But neither are you right.

A study by the Common Cause Foundation, due to be published next month, reveals two transformative findings. The first is that a large majority of the 1000 people they surveyed – 74% – identify more strongly with unselfish values than with selfish values. This means that they are more interested in helpfulness, honesty, forgiveness and justice than in money, fame, status and power. The second is that a similar majority – 78% – believes others to be more selfish than they really are. In other words, we have made a terrible mistake about other people’s minds.

These aren’t just ‘Crimes’…It’s Patriarchy

5 deaths from Macho Violence in Spain in a Single Day

These are not ordinary events or isolated facts, it is a system that perpetuates domination over women. It’s patriarchy.strong womenPatriarchy is…. giving the boys balls and dolls to us girls to educate us to be submissive and silent, to teach that there are things for women and men.. it’s just to look at the body of a woman when she doesn’t want it, then to treat you as exaggerated or hysterical, to harass verbally, to insist on violence and ultimately death. This and much more is all patriarchy. That men have more leisure time than women, that men don’t help at home, as we are delegated to the care of children and elderly, that women are paid less for doing the same job, that we are afraid to walk down the street, having been harassed since childhood … Continue reading These aren’t just ‘Crimes’…It’s Patriarchy
