Alternative Health:

In the first half of Tuesday's show, Dr. Joel Wallach , discussed the human body's innate ability to heal itself through natural means and supplementation. The mainstream medical system has failed Americans terribly-- according to one report medical doctors kill, injure, or infect 15 million patients annually at hospitals and clinics, he cited. The problem of over-prescribing medications is rampant, and patients with a chronic issue are on the average given 27 different pharmaceutical prescriptions, he continued. "I think insurance has been one of the most terrible things for human health," as with this kind of system, patients don't get second opinions, he added.

Wallach believes that most diseases and medical problems are the result of mineral or dietary deficiencies. One study he cited showed that the ingredients in commercially available baby formulas didn't meet the nutritional needs of growing infants. It takes minerals to maintain the health of connective tissue, and a number of conditions such as peripheral neuropathy (pain in the hands and feet) can be improved with the right supplementation, he said. Wallach also suggested that the real cause of obesity is nutritional deficiencies, rather than poor diet and lack of exercise.
Education Failure:

In the latter half, international journalist and educator Alex Newman, addressed his work with veteran educator Samuel L. Blumenfeld on disturbing trends in public schools, which he claims are dumbing down a generation of American youth. The problems in American education began with the adoption of practices introduced by John Dewey early in the 20th century, which included a whole-word method of teaching reading, Newman stated, adding that Dewey was a progressive who studied teaching in Europe and Russia, and wanted to turn America into a socialist utopia.

The Dewey approach has been incorporated into "Common Core," a set of national standards used in public schools of what each student should know in English and Mathematics at the end of each grade. Such a system impedes innovation and competition, and ends up lowering the quality of education, victimizing both students and teachers, Newman contended. Further, the federal government is collecting data, and forming dossiers on all these students through the Common Core program, he cautioned. Instead of the compromised public school system, Newman advised enrolling kids in private schools, or home schooling them if possible.
Blast from the Past:

This week, our two free audio clips are from eight years ago, May 2007, when mystic, author and speaker Robert Bruce discussed methods of astral projection and energy work, and author Charlie Carlson spoke about paranormal and strange events in Florida, including sightings of the Skunk Ape.

Today in Strangeness:

On this date, The Great Comet of 1861 was discovered by John Tebbutt of New South Wales, Australia. It was visible to the naked eye for approximately three months. On May 13, 1917, three shepherd children first reported seeing an apparition of the Virgin Mary in Fatima, Portugal. The date is celebrated as a holiday.

Tonight's Show, Wednesday, May 13th:

Researcher of ancient mythology and paranormal phenomena, Tom Horn, will be joined by prophecy expert Cris Putnam to discuss a recent Harvard paper showing evidence of another world beneath earth crust that was "pushed" there during a catastrophic impact 4.5 billion years ago. They'll also cover the implications of CERN, their trip to the Vatican observatory, legends from Native Americans of a "time before time," as well as an update on giants and transhumanism. First hour guest, private investigator Roger Tolces, who specializes in electronic countermeasures, reports on a new potentially invasive radar technology that allows law enforcement to peer inside homes.
