(NaturalNews) More microscopic photos of the "mysterious fibers" found in McDonald's Chicken McNuggets have been released by the Natural News Forensic Food Lab. The forensic microscopy investigation was conducted by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, using clean laboratory protocols.

These new photos, shown below, appear to depict microscopic hairs, fibers or strands of varying colors and shades throughout the McDonald's Chicken McNugget samples. All the following photos were taken at 200X magnification. The hair-like fibers you see here are much smaller than a human hair or animal hair (see comparison below). The Chicken McNuggets were purchased on August 15, 2013 at a McDonald's restaurant in Austin, Texas.

Natural News broke the story yesterday about mysterious fibers found in Chicken McNuggets, and the story has been covered by and thousands of other websites across the 'net.

"These microscopic images of strange fibers in Chicken McNuggets do not mean they are unsafe to consume," reiterates Mike Adams, who led the microscopy research project. "But they do raise many questions about the origin of the ingredients used in Chicken McNuggets, and they possibly raise red flags about quality control procedures used in the manufacture of this popular fast food."

There has been a wave of public speculation (see comments, below) about whether these fibers are related to a mysterious condition known as "Morgellon's," which also appears to involve the presence of strange, unexplained fibers in humans. You can see examples of Morgellon's morphology at:

Here are the new images just released by the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, with notations:

This black strand appears to be a multi-fibrous "tangle" of unknown origin:

This is one of the more mysterious fibers we've found. Notice that the semi-transparent fiber appears to have a "sheath" surrounding the center portion of the fiber. This seems to indicate the likelihood of a biological origin:

Here's another black fiber "tangle." We found these frequently as we searched through several Chicken McNuggets:

Here is yet another "tangle" we located:

For comparison, we added a dog hair fiber to this slide so that you can see the size difference. The large brown hair arcing across the entire frame is a dog hair. The much smaller black hair-like fiber is what we found in a Chicken McNugget:

Here is an extreme close-up of a black fiber we managed to remove from a Chicken McNugget. Notice that it appears to be segmented. This may indicate it could be made of biological cells connected end to end:

Here are some additional fibers and hair-like structures we found in McDonald's Chicken McNuggets. All images are at 200X magnification:

Sacred herb turmeric may make at least 14 pharmaceutical drugs utterly obsolete

(NaturalNews) You may have already heard about the many amazing healing properties of the spice turmeric, which is also sometimes referred to as curcumin. But did you know that literally thousands of published, peer-reviewed studies conducted and compiled over the years lend credence to the notion that turmeric works the same as, or even better than, at least 14 pharmaceutical drugs currently on the market?

It is true, and thanks to the diligent work of's Sayer Ji in compiling this valuable information, it is now available publicly for the benefit of your and your family's health. Many of the most commonly prevalent chronic illnesses, it turns out, can be prevented, treated, and even cured using turmeric, so you will want to pay attention. Here are seven drugs and classes of drugs that science shows can be effectively replaced with turmeric:

1) Statin drugs for cholesterol. Popular cholesterol drugs like Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) and Crestor (rosuvastatin) are completely unnecessary when taking standardized doses of curcuminoids extracted from turmeric, according to a 2008 study published in the journal Drugs in R & D. Researchers found that in patients with endothelial dysfunction, the underlying blood vessel pathology that leads to atherosclerosis, turmeric extract worked at least as good as the drugs at reducing inflammation and relieving oxidative stress in type 2 diabetics.

2) Corticosteroid drugs. Millions of people receive steroid injections every year to treat the inflammation associated with conditions like arthritis and even cancer. But a 1999 study published in the journal Phytotherapy Research found that turmeric's primary antioxidant, curcumin, works just as well as steroid medications in the treatment of inflammatory eye disease. Several studies released in the years following found similar benefits for other inflammatory diseases commonly treated with steroids.

3) Antidepressants. Besides their copious side effects, antidepressant drugs like Prozac (fluoxetine) and Paxil (paroxetine) are extremely risky, as they can actually make depression symptoms worse for some people. But why even bother to use them when turmeric has been shown to effectively reduce depressive behavior the same or even better than these dangerous drugs?

4) Blood thinners. People at high risk of heart attack or stroke, or who require blood-thinning drugs to avoid these and other cardiovascular events, may simply be able to take turmeric instead. This suggestion is based on a 1986 study published in the journal Arzneimittelforschung, which found that curcumin has similar anti-platelet and prostacyclin modulating effects as aspirin, the blood-thinning drug of choice for many conventional doctors.

5) Anti-inflammatory drugs. Aspirin is also commonly prescribed for other inflammatory conditions, as is ibuprofen, naproxen sodium, and a number of other pain pills. But these may be unnecessary as turmeric was shown in a 2004 study published in the journal Oncogene to exert similar anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative activity, particularly against cancer cells, as these drugs.

6) Chemotherapy drugs. The cancer industry would have us all believe that chemotherapy drugs are one of the few methods we have at our disposal to treat cancer. But a 2007 study published in the International Journal of Cancer found that curcumin works just as well as oxaliplatin (Eloxatin) at treating colorectal cancer.

7) Diabetes drugs. Not only is turmeric a viable contender in treating diabetes, a 2009 study published in the journal Biochemistry and Biophysical Research Community found that it works up to 100,000 times better than the popular diabetes drug Metformin at increasing glucose uptake. Turmeric also helps suppress glucose production in the liver at least as well as the most popular diabetes drugs on the market today.

Beyond this, turmeric is a powerful cancer-fighting herb as well, which Ji expounds upon further in his turmeric review. Be sure to check it out at:

Healthy Meals on a Budget – How to Eat Healthy While Saving Money Tags: Health Food

food shopping 263x164 Healthy Meals on a Budget   How to Eat Healthy While Saving MoneyWith our economy declining while food prices continue rising, you might feel compelled to not eat as healthily as you’d prefer. Or if you’re a meat eater, you may be discouraged by the higher prices of humanely treated organic grass fed meat sources. Have no fear, though – a few tips on eating healthy meals on a budget is just under your nose.

Choosing the Right Stuff

One tip for consuming meals that are satisfying while packing in the nutrition is to redefine certain ‘low-life’ food. This is about quality rice and beans’ merits; hopefully deconstructing this combination’s negative reputation as low-life food can lead to countless tasteful, quality meals to your dinner table.

Firstly, avoid all canned beans, even if they are organic. By now you probably know about the dangers of the linings in cans and their toxic BPA content. Besides, canned beans are more expensive than bagged dry beans and have been precooked, heavily compromising their nutritional value.


Don’t bother with any packaged rices either. You’ll spend more for less and probably not get the best quality rice.

Go to the bulk sections of your health food store where there are organic beans and rice. For optimum nutrition, buy mostly organic brown rice of any variety. White rice is okay too, if you select organic basmati white rice, especially if it’s “parbroiled”. (Parbroiling is an Indian technique for removing the bran from rice while ensuring most of the nutrients remain intact. Parbroiled basmati rice is used in virtually all Ayurvedic (ancient medicine of India) recipes because it is easy to digest is boosts basic health.)

But you may have to go to a store that specializes in Eastern or Indian foods to get parbroiled basmati white rice.

A Fast Start Mini-Course for Cooking Beans and Rice

Dry bulk beans need to be soaked in good quality water before being cooked. This releases the phytate in them, making them easier to digest. Black beans need to be soaked for longer than most other beans.

Make sure you put 2-3 times more water than beans in the container. The beans will absorb the water and swell considerably. Let them soak overnight so they’ll be ready to cook the next day. If you start soaking the same day you plan on cooking, you’ll be able to tell the beans are ready to cook when you can easily bite through them.

Lentils, another member of the legume family, don’t need to be soaked before they are cooked, but it’s a good idea to sort through them in a shallow pan or dish to get rid of those pesky tiny rocks that sometimes come along with the lentils.


Lentils cook in around a half hour or less, with a 2:1 ratio of water to lentils. They go well with brown rice for dinner on a budget. Most brown rice usually needs very little rinsing.

Basmati white rice requires a thorough rinse to get rid of the oil coatings used to protect the rice during storage and shipping. Rinse in a fine mesh strainer under with high pressure water from the sink faucet until the milky quality from the oil coatings vanishes. Rapidly shaking the strainer back and forth sideways while the water flows through speeds this process up.

If you don’t have a ricer or rice cooker that’s not aluminum, you might want to browse the internet for cooking advice.

Then it’s ready to serve. Cooking lentils can be synchronized along with this 40 minute rice cooking period. But other beans, especially nutrient-rich black beans, need more time and should be started earlier.

Time to Eat

You can use a variety of combinations to dress up beans and rice, such as premium organic cold pressed extra virgin olive oil and lime or lemon, or a fermented soy sauce (tamari) or liquid amino sauce such as Braggs along with chopped cilantro, onions, tomatoes or some finely chopped nuts or seeds.

Brown rice with lentils or garbanzos is great too. Peas and chopped nuts can be used with either brown or white rice as well. Instead of oil, organic butter or ghee is terrific, especially with white rice combos. A dash of real sea salt and whatever herbs you favor tops it all off. All yummy, filling, and nutritious.

Trial and error with various combinations will be inexpensive, fulfilling, and healthy. Many people find they have a problem with a budget type dinner that has only veggies on the menu. But adding high fiber bulky foods like beans and rice makes all the difference.
