US-Created System In Iraq Is Collapsing: Protesters Storm Parliament, State of Emergency Declared - Live Webcast

Less than two years ago, the US set up another puppet government in the mid-east this time in the state of Iraq when following substantial US pressure, on August 14, 2014 then prime minister al-Maliki agreed to stepped down and be replaced with Haider al-Abadi. Today, the regime is in chaos and the system set up in Iraq by the US is collapsing when protesters loyal to popular Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr breached the heavily fortified Green Zone, home to government buildings and foreign embassies, and stormed the Iraqi parliament forcing MPs to flee and unleashing a state of emergency for all of Baghdad.
As can be seen in the photo (and live webcast below), hundreds of demonstrators occupied the country's parliament. Video from inside the building showed jubilant crowds waving Iraqi flags and shouting "peaceful, peaceful." Supporters of Sadr, whose fighters once controlled swaths of Baghdad and helped defend the capital from ISIS, have been demonstrating for weeks at the gates of the Green Zone, responding to their leader's call to pressure the government to reform.
Cited by NBC, Brig. Gen. Saad Mann, a spokesman for the Iraqi military, said that Iraq security authorities have declared a state of emergency in Baghdad. "All gates that lead to Baghdad are closed. No one is allowed to enter into Baghdad, only those who want to leave Baghdad can do so." "There is no evacuation for the American staff inside the American embassy," he said. A U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity said the American Embassy in Baghdad was not being evacuated, contrary to local reports. We expect that should the pro-US government fall, this will promptly change.
Security forces responsible for guarding the entrance to the area were not able to stop the demonstrators without opening fire so they let them in, the security source told NBC News. As a result, the protest is mostly peaceful for now even thought Saturday was the first time the protesters breached the compound's walls.

Capricorn TV - Nassim Haramein - New Discovery in Physics !

Nassim Haramein was born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1962. As early as 9 years old, Nassim was already discovering the universal dynamics of matter and energy, which led him on a journey toward pioneering a new approach to quantum gravity and continual developments in unified field theory. He grew up in Eastern Canada with an innate reverence for the design of nature and a determination to discover the basic building-blocks of creation. Nassim dedicated most of his time to his independent investigation into physics, geometry, chemistry, biology, consciousness, archeology, and various world religions. Haramein’s dedication to scientific exploration combined with his keen observation of the behavior of nature led him to a specific geometric pattern which is at the core of his approach and new perspective in unified field theory.

Fluent in both French and English, Haramein has been delivering lectures and seminars on unification theory for over 20 years worldwide. In 2003 he founded The Resonance Project Foundation, and as its Director of Research leads teams of physicists, electrical engineers, mathematicians and other scientists to explore the frontier of unification principles and their implications. Haramein’s lifelong vision of applied unified physics to create positive change in the world today is reflected in the mission of The Resonance Project Foundation. He shares the developments of his research through scientific publications and educational offerings through the Resonance Academy.

Currently Nassim is focused on his most recent developments in quantum gravity and their applications to technology, new energy research, applied resonance, life sciences, permaculture, and consciousness studies. Nassim currently resides in Kauai compassionately raising his two young sons, and surfing the sunlit swells on the shores of the magnificent Hawaiian islands.

CERN Hadron Collider Revealed! The Interview You Must See!
Join Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt as he welcomes back Oxford Scholar and author of the popular Giza Death Star book series Dr. Joseph P. Farrell. His latest book, The Third Way: The Nazi International, European Union and Corporate Fascism, explores the deep political roots and global dangers of the controversial particle physics experiment by CERN called The Hadron Collider, which was set up in Geneva, Switzerland with a massive military style budget of over six billion dollars!

Dr. Farrell's research exposes CERN's official story of the so-called "Atom Smasher" Hadron Collider Project, as being ostensibly created for peaceful scientific experiments in particle physics, and reveals that it is actually a dangerous advanced technology project set up for secret military purposes and is seeking the ability to manipulate matter on a galactic scale and possibly even open dimensional doorways.

Strangelets Danger
He cites the massive disturbances in the magnetosphere of the earth when the Hadron Collider is turned on and outlines that it may have serious consequences for physical life on earth and a major impact on the rotation of the planet itself. We also will discover that voices in the scientific community have raised objections that CERN is unsafe due to the potential development of "Strangelets" a distorted potential byproduct of the matter smashing experiments that have been compared to mini black holes that suck in all dense matter and energy. He also shows the undeniable similarity between the CERN Hadron Collider and a Nazi Physics project called The Bell" that was an underground Torsion Physics project built by slave labor and overseen by the top Nazi Scientists to give them a master weapon to rule the world!

Deep State Nazi Connections
Dark Journalist and Dr. Farrell investigate the history of CERN and demonstrate clear links of a post-war Nazi International through the figure of John J. McCloy , lawyer for notorious German corporate conglomerate IG Farben. McCloy was also the Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations and became the American High Commissioner for post World War II Germany. In a controversial action, McCloy helped clear and vet over 70,000 Nazis (yes, 70,000!) helping to utilize their intelligence networks to set up the CIA. 

One of the major figures that he cleared was top Nazi legal theorist and prisoner of war Dr. Walter Hallstein who was eventually responsible for helping to set up CERN and who was also a key architect for developing the the Nazi plan for a European Federation that was eventually adopted as the blueprint for the European Union. McCloy, in a strange twist, also served on the Warren Commission to whitewash any Deep State connections to the JFK Assassination. JFK was famously committed to "Smashing the CIA into a thousand pieces" as a way to root out the Nazi infiltration of the agency and regain control over the government from suspected Nazi collaborators like CIA director Allen Dulles. 

Revealing, groundbreaking, shocking, unnerving, and rife with controversial, staggering implications of a massive covert military project hiding in plain sight, don't miss this cutting- edge Dark Journalist Episode!

Couple Proves Nature Can be Healed by Transforming Barren Land into Sanctuary

In the Southwest Indian state of Karnataka, a beautiful 300-acre forest serves as a sanctuary for animals such as Bengal Tigers, Asian Elephants, Hyena, Wild Boar, Leopards, and Sambha, as well as hundreds of varieties of native trees, thanks to the work of Pamela and Anil Malhotra.
Driven by their passion for wildlife and nature conservation, the couple has worked diligently over the last 25 years to transform barren land into what is known as the SAI Sanctuary. Unlike most people, Anil and Pamela believe that the challenge of conserving wildlife and the bio-diversity of the land should be faced by all like-minded people, including individuals, NGOs and conservation agencies, and not left to governments alone, whose interests are often not environmentally friendly.
One of the biggest motivations behind the creation of the SAI Sanctuary is Pamela and Anil’s realization that one of the biggest crises facing the world is the lack of fresh water. They have used the land as a project to show that Mother Nature has the ability to regenerate itself, if only given the chance. They have followed three important rules:
  • No chopping down of any tree
  • No human interference
  • No poachers
A river housing many aquatic fish and snake species crosses the 300 acre SAI Sanctuary.
This bio-diverse sanctuary is now rich in plant and animal life, with thick trees, expansive green cover, a river housing several aquatic fish and snake species, and over 305 species of birds. Responding to the devastation of the planet’s lands through monoculture, deforestation and excavation of natural resources, SAI has become a living example of the possibility in reestablishing some of the balance essential for nature to thrive.
People think that animals need the forest. But the truth is, the forest needs the animals equally. While the forest helps animals in providing shelter and food, animals help forests in regeneration – they are both inter-dependent and we should make efforts to preserve both,” says Anil.
Pamela gives a unique example of this co-dependancy between plants and animals:
Elephants are very important for regeneration of the forests as they swallow the seed completely without breaking it, unlike other species. Around 30 species of trees totally depend upon elephants for regeneration.
SAI serves as a sanctuary for animals such as Bengal Tigers, Asian Elephants, Hyena, Wild Boar, Leopards, and Sambha, as well as hundreds of varieties of native trees
Deforestation in the equatorial region is believed to be one of the main reasons for the water crisis facing the world. It is contributing to higher temperatures and a quicker evaporation process and has thus impaired the hydrological cycle – the rainfall cycle – of the planet. It is one of the main causes of the spiraling loss of plant, animal and insect species, which threatens the overall balance of the planet.
In vast areas of equatorial deforested land, natural water sources, which use to provide water to animals and crops on local lands, have dried up or offer very little water, especially during the dry season that lasts about half of the year in most tropical regions. With little shade and decreasing animal activity, the soil is dying, and thus it is increasingly difficult for farmers to grow food. They turn to fertilizers and herbicides, which are toxic to the environment and have further harmed all living things, including people.
The problem of barren land, no longer fit for crop cultivation, is exactly what created the opportunity for Anil and Pamela to purchase the lands that now make up the SAI Sanctuary. They purchased unused and abandoned land from farmers who were faced with debt as their land stood idle because they were not able to grow crops. What started with 55 acres in 1991 has grown into the only private wildlife sanctuary in India extending over 300 acres.
The sanctuary won the “Wildlife and Tourism Initiative Of The Year” award by Sanctuary Asia in 2014. It offers a unique experience to the visitors and includes an organic farm and nearly 12 acres of coffee and around 15 acres of cardamom on the land. The sanctuary runs completely on solar and alternate energy.
Below is a short documentary about SAI, Rooted Truth, during which the passionate couple shares their great message on how a small group can make a tremendous impact on nature conservation.

Eating Black Raspberries Significantly Lowers Cardiovascular Disease

Black raspberry (Rubus occidentalis) has long been used in traditional alternative medicine in Korea because of its potential to improve vascular function. An extract found in black raspberries can significantly lower arterial stiffness, a key measure of cardiovascular disease, according to data from a Korean study.

Previous research has shows that Black raspberries are highly effective in preventing colorectal tumors and esophageal cancer.

Current findings establish a link between the consumption of this fruit and circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs), which help repair and regenerate damaged arteries.
Arterial stiffness is considered a key indicator of metabolic syndrome, a cluster of cardiovascular (CV) risk factors, especially in obese andinsulin-resistant patients.

Korean trials
Researchers from Korea University Anam Hospital (Seoul) and Gochang Black Raspberry Research Institute (Korea) carried out the trial.
The results of a randomised controlled trial saw two groups of patients with metabolic syndrome receive either 750 mg/day of black raspberry extract or a placebo for 12 weeks.
Here, blood pressure, degree of vascular stiffness, circulating number of EPCs and various markers of inflammation were recorded at the start of the study and at a 12-week follow-up.
The team of researchers from Korea University Anam Hospital and Gochang Black Raspberry Research Institute in South Korea found vascular stiffness values were significantly decreased in the black raspberry group compared to the placebo group (--5% vs. 3%).
In addition, EPCs at the 12-week follow-up were significantly higher in the black raspberry group compared to the placebo group (19 microlitres vs. --28micro-L).
Indicators of inflammation, such as interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF), were significantly greater in the black raspberry group compared to the placebo group (--0.5 picogram per millilitre vs. --0.1 pg/ml, and --5.4 pg/ml vs. --0.8 pg/ml, respectively).
Adiponectin levels, a hormone involved in regulating metabolic processes, were significantly higher in the black raspberry group when compared to the baseline (2.9 micro-g/ml vs.-- 0.2 micro-g/ml).
"The use of black raspberry significantly lowered the augmentation index and increased circulating EPCs, thereby improving CV risks in patients with metabolic syndrome during the 12-week follow-up,"

Black raspberry benefits

The health benefits of anthocyanidins such as those found in purple potatoes and its derivatives have been well-documented and add to an ever growing body of science to support the potential heart health benefits of black raspberries, with the bioactives proposed to be anthocyanins, flavonols, resveratrol, ellagitannin and tannins.

Check out this comparison graph that uses ORAC (a way of measuring antioxidant capacity) of different caneberries from Oregon State University Food Science: 

Antioxidant compounds of black raspberry, in particular are effective in reducing blood pressure.
Black raspberry has long been used in traditional alternative medicine in Korea because of its potential to improve vascular function.
These components have already been well-documented for their anti-inflammatory, antioxidative and anti-atherosclerotic effects.
Studies have shown antioxidant compounds of black raspberry, in particular as especially effective in reducing blood pressure andimproving arterial stiffness.
Some studies have demonstrated black raspberries improve blood pressure, lipid profiles and vascular function.
The researchers pointed towards the fruit's flavonoid content as primarily responsible for the improvement of vascular function in the subjects.
Flavonoids are known to increase bioavailability of nitric oxide (NO) and the enzyme endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), two known factors that contribute to the relaxation of coronary arteries.
Anthocyanins too were highlighted as factors that possess an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant capacity, further improving vascular function by up-regulating NO and eNOS.
Meanwhile, the researchers hypothesised that the degree of vascular stiffness was lessened due to the increased circulating number of EPCs.
EPCs are believed to home into the injury site to replicate endothelial cells and activate the endogenous repair system.
"The number of circulating EPCs inversely correlates with CV risk factors, suggesting that the circulating number of EPCs is lower in patients with CV diseases," the study noted.
"Increases in circulating EPCs during the 12-week follow-up in this study suggest rapid restoration to the damaged endothelium, thereby contributing to the improvement of arterial stiffness and the augmentation index."

Rebellion gegen die GEZ erreicht eine kritische Größe


Kurz nachdem die Inhaftierung der GEZ-Rebellin Sieglinde Baumert publik wurde, zog der MDR den Antrag auf Erlass des Haftbefehls zurück. Der Sender hatte wegen gerade einmal 191,82 Euro die erste politische Gefangene seit dem Fall der Mauer auf seiner Kappe. Außerdem ist jetzt klar: Das Zwangsfernsehen wird nicht bis zum Äußersten gehen, wenn die Proteste gegen die Zwangsgebühr weiter zunehmen. Und das werden sie: denn vier starke Gründe sprechen dafür: Sieglinde Baumert ist einer davon. Der zweite ist die Pfändung des Kontos der AfD-Vizechefin Beatrix von Storch, die sich zu den GEZ-Rebellen gesellt hat. Der dritte sind jene 4,5 Millionen Deutsche, die der GEZ schon das Leben schwermachen. Und der vierte ist das Papier des Wissenschaftlichen Beirats beim Finanzministerium. Dort wird eine Reform des ÖR Rundfunks gefordert. Torben Grombery hat die wachsende Rebellion gegen die GEZ für die Webseite von Kopp aufgeschrieben. Der Beitrag hat wie eine Bombe eingeschlagen.

Amid Rising Fears Of Nuclear Terrorism, Belgium Hands Out Iodine Pills To Entire Population

One month after we learned that the Brussels suicide bombers had planted hidden camerasat the home of the top Belgian nuclear official, we now learn that in a disturbing continuation of this story, the entire population of Belgium will be receiving iodine tablets, which helps to limit the effects of radiation on the body, as fears increase around the security of its nuclear power plants.
Iodine pills, which can help block radioactive iodine from being absorbed by the thyroid gland, had previously only been given to people living within 20km (14 miles) of the Tihange and Doel nuclear plants, but Health Minister Maggie De Block said that coverage was extended to 100km. The extended coverage area now encompasses essentially the entire country of 11 million people. "We will provide iodine pills in the whole country."
She added: "It is not linked with the safety of our nuclear plants. The recommendation came after Fukushima … because obviously after Fukushima, we have more information regarding nuclear risks."
The pills will be sent to pharmacies, and the public would be ordered to collect their ration in the event of a meltdown, with children, pregnant women, and those breast-feeding being given top priority.

Family "freaks out" while witnessing a semi-invisible alien flying machine | "Out of this world"


EXCLUSIVE: After taking multiple photos a Colorado family is still in shock after witnessing something so bizarre that words nor pictures can barely describe what they saw in the sky while driving eastbound at 2:16pm on highway 24 outside of Flagler, Colorado....the sky was clear and sunny when all of the sudden...out of nowhere came a huge, nearly invisible ship in the sky, flying at never before seen speed, nearly 2 football fields long!
One eyewitness is a retired military man and he had never seen anything even remotely close to what they saw that day...was so stunned he removed his sidearm because he wasn't sure what to expect!!!!!

7 Inspirational Stories of People Who Beat Their Cancer with Cannabis Oil

cannabis oil cure
Sherrie Hurd, Contributor
Waking Times
After several decades of stigma and criminalization, the image of cannabis is finally being reconsidered.Myths and prejudices are now giving way to the recognition of this ancient plant’s incredible medicinal properties. Indeed, if we had to make a full list of the positive effects marijuana has on one’s mental and physical health, that would be a huge one.
If you don’t want to take my word for it, make your decision after reading these amazing stories of survival thanks to the use of cannabis oil. It’s true, this miracle herb has saved the lives of many people!

Rick Simpson

Okay, it all started here. Rick Simpson invented hemp oil medicine which supposedly cured his own cancer. Because of routine cancer treatments, Rick had become a “zombie”. When he discovered how well the oil worked, he decided to present his cure to the Canadian authorities, where they attempted to prosecute him. However, he is still considered a hero.

David Triplett

Stricken with cancerous lesions, David decided to give up his chemo cream. He was frightened of the results of the skin cream on other cancer patients. Instead of following doctor’s orders, David decided to use cannabis oil on the lesions. After four weeks, the cancerous lesions were gone.

Dennis Hill

Six months is all it took for Dennis Hill to rid his body of Cancer. He proudly proclaims, “Cannabis Kills Cancer!” And do you know why? Hill, biochemist, claims to have treated his own Cancer with Rick Simpson’s Cannabis oil. Along with healthy eating and exercise, Hill’s tumor disappeared completely.

Shona Banda

Shona may not have battled Cancer, but her eight year war with Chron’s disease had her bedridden most of the time and walking with a cane. While looking for alternative remedies, Shona came across Rick Simpson’s Cannabis oil video. Since investing in this miracle oil, Shona is cured. She wrote a book called, Live Free or Die.

Cheryl Shuman

Beverly Hill’s Celebrity, Cheryl Shuman was tired of taking a cocktail of various medications, including 27 morphine tablets in a day. After discovering cannabis oil, Shuman started treating herself. After 90 days, she is in remission from cancer.

Peter Germain

Type 2 Diabetes can be more dangerous and debilitation than you think. This disease had greatly affected Peter Germain’s quality of life. When he decided to try something new, the results were amazing. In six weeks of trying cannabis oil, Peter lost 50 lbs. and his blood sugar levels reduced drastically.


Nine year old cancer patient, Mykayla, was headed toward full body radiation and a bone marrow transplant. Her parents refused to let her endure this suffering and instead opted to use cannabis oil. After six days of use, Mykayla was in remission. How astounding is that!
More and more people come to the understanding that the medical industry provides treatments and no cures. If we can all be cured from cancer or some other horrific illnesses, why shouldn’t we give it a try? Let’s get rid of the marijuana stigma and keep working toward the final answer!
Hope triumphs again!

Breakthrough Discovery!
Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt and Pyramid Expert Dr. Carmen Boulter explore her shocking and exciting new discoveries of ancient sites using a new Space Archaeology Satellite Scan technique that suggest the Atlantean Hall of Records may have been found! 

Complete Archaeological Blackout
Renowned early 20th century psychic,Edgar Cayce, known as the "Sleeping Prophet" predicted that evidence for Atlantis and its advanced technology would one day be found beneath the pyramids at Giza, through a hidden passageway underneath the right paw of the Sphinx.

Egyptology, of course scoffs at the very idea of the "Lost Civilization", let alone one possessing highly-advanced technology. Concerned with controlling the narrative of Ancient Egypt, investigations running counter to that narrative have been derided by or even blocked by Egypt's Minister of Antiquities, Zahi Hawass (now retired) in what some call an "Archaeological Blackout".

This interview looks at the story of two leading Egyptologists whose early digs were sponsored by the Edgar Cayce Foundation's Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE). One had previously written a book on Cayce's readings, describing how Ancient Egypt was founded by the survivors of Atlantis. 

Were these archaeologists secretly looking for the Ancient Hall of Records, using the Cayce readings, while publicly disavowing their former sponsor, to stay in line with official Egyptology?

Queen Nefertiti and The Pharaoh Akhenaten
The story of Pharaoh Akhenaten and his wife, Nefertiti has been framed by Egyptologists in a way to suggest that the Amun Priesthood was heroic, in deposing the heretically monotheistic "mad king", says Boulter. According to her, the real story is much more intriguing and it relates to Akhenaten's esoteric knowledge about the founding of Ancient Egypt.

Why did the Priesthood attempt to strip Akhenaten and Nefertiti from history? Was Nefertiti able to escape, to conceal ancient knowledge of Egypt's Atlantean past and off-world origins in a sacred tomb? Will Boulter's latest archaeological find finally bring closure to this ancient 
mystery, once and for all?

Shocking, enlightening, bizarre, unnerving, strange and compelling. You don't want to miss this unique Dark Journalist episode!

Oops! Universe Expanding "Too Quickly" | Space News


As Wal Thornhill explains, the standard cosmology’s increasingly strange interpretations and conjectures become unnecessary in an Electric Universe. Conventional science tell us that mysterious dark energy makes up 73% of the total mass and energy in the Universe. The concept of dark energy was invented in the 1990’s, when scientists studying type 1A supernovae discovered that the supernovae appeared to be accelerating faster the farther away they were from the observer. Today, cosmologists say that the mysterious force of dark energy is responsible for increasing the expansion of the Universe since the hypothetical Big Bang explosion. However, they admit that they have no understanding of what dark energy is nor how it really works. A new scientific study has only made the hypothetical dark energy more mysterious. Scientists attempting to measure the so-called cosmic expansion rate have discovered that the Universe again appears to be expanding much too quickly, even taking into account the invention of dark energy’s influence.

CIA-Backed Artificial Intelligence Firm To Spy on Wall Street Traders

Jake Anderson
April 27, 2016
(ANTIMEDIA)  Swiss multinational bank, Credit Suisse, will collaborate with data analysis firm, Palantir, to launch a trader surveillance program. According to Bloomberg’s Jeffrey Voegeli, the joint venture, called Signac, aims to catch rogue Wall Streeters engaged in illegal trading. It comes in the wake of a number of trading scandals in recent years that have cost banks billions of dollars.
Palantir was co-founded by Peter Thiel and seed-funded by the CIA. The company was funded in part by In-Q-Tel Inc., the venture capital investment arm of the CIA that has a long, symbiotic history with startups, the NSA, the FBI, and DARPA. In fact, In-Q-Tel specifically funds tech start-ups “to advance ‘priority’ technologies of value” in the intelligence community. The group has ties to Donald Rumsfeld’s Total Information Awareness initiative and is believed by some to have worked closely with Google in its earliest years.
Palantir itself has lived in the shadows since its 2004 inception, working primarily to create a proprietary data mining system used by law enforcement agencies, finance firms, and security companies to isolate criminality. For example, Palantir’s software was used to analyze the troves of millions of documents related to the Bernie Madoff scandal.
Palantir has an extensive relationship with the U.S. government, and includes among its clients the CIA, DHS, NSA, FBI, the CDC, the Marine Corps, the Air Force, Special Operations Command, West Point, the Joint IED-defeat organization and Allies, the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Another client is the Los Angeles Police Department. A leaked document from 2013 included a quote fromSergeant Peter Jackson, who said Palantir’s technology is allowing the LAPD to become more efficient.
The new trader surveillance co-venture comes at a time when Credit Suisse finds itself in dire straits. After adhering to a so-called Pursuit of Revenue “At All Costs” policy, the company now finds itself facing $90 billion of distressed debt and rampant illiquidity.
Now bank executives view the problem as stemming largely from rogue traders, and believe Signac will help them turn things around. Signac will use algorithmic artificial intelligence to monitor unauthorized trades.
It is perhaps worth noting that Signac will monitor internal transactions that harm Credit Suisse – not any of the myriad transgressions made by the financial industry at large, such as the kinds of predatory lending we saw prior to the Great Recession. We may have to wait for a larger, more aggressive artificial intelligence presence for that kind of oversight.

Those Little Laundry Detergent Packets Cause Serious Medical Outcomes Over Other Types of Detergent

One day we will all wonder why we ever made detergents so toxic--after all they are going on the clothes we put on our backs. A new study conducted by the Center for Injury Research and Policy of the Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital and the Central Ohio Poison Center found that exposure to laundry detergent packets is more dangerous to young children than exposure to other types of laundry and dishwasher detergent.

David Steinman, an environmental health consumer advocate with the Green Patriot Working Group (GPWG) and former representative at the National Academy of Sciences, has been on a mission since 2007 to organize product testing for the petrochemical 1,4-dioxane in your personal care and household cleaning products. They found about two-thirds of the laundry detergents tested contained 1,4-dioxane. 

Besides 1,4-dioxane, the average detergent has a long list of chemical ingredients, none of which are good for you or the environment. Anything in such a product can potentially be absorbed through your skin, or evaporate into the air you breathe.

The study published online in Pediatrics, found that from January 2013 through December 2014 Poison Control Centers in the U.S. received 62,254 calls related to laundry and dishwasher detergent exposures among children younger than 6 years old. The study included calls about both traditional detergent and detergent packets and found that detergent packets accounted for 60 percent of all calls. Almost half (45 percent) of the calls for exposure to laundry detergent packets were referred to a health care facility for evaluation and treatment, significantly more than calls related to exposures to traditional laundry detergent (17 percent), traditional dishwasher detergent (four percent), or dishwasher detergent packets (five percent).

Incidents related to laundry detergent packets saw the biggest rise -- increasing 17 percent over the two year study period. Poison control centers received more than 30 calls a day about children who had been exposed to a laundry detergent packet, which is about one call every 45 minutes.

"We can’t watch our children every second of every day, no matter how vigilant we are," she said. "Kids move quickly and can slip out from under our watchful eyes in a matter of seconds, and that’s all it takes for something bad to happen."
In addition, the most serious clinical effects such as coma, trouble breathing, heart problems, and death, were only seen in children exposed to the chemicals in laundry detergent packets. The risks of having a clinical effect, a serious medical outcome, hospitalization, or intubation were significantly higher for children who had been exposed to the chemicals in a laundry detergent packet than for those exposed to any other type of laundry or dishwasher detergent. At least one child a day in the U.S. was admitted to the hospital due to a laundry detergent packet exposure. The two child deaths in this study were both associated with exposure to laundry detergent packets.
In an effort to reduce unintentional exposures to the contents of laundry detergent packets, ASTM published a voluntary Standard Safety Specification for Liquid Laundry Packets in 2015, but some experts feel it did not go far enough.
"This voluntary standard is a good first step, but it needs to be strengthened," said Gary Smith, MD, DrPH, the senior author of the study and director of the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. "Unless this unacceptably high number of exposures declines dramatically, manufacturers need to continue to find ways to make this product and its packaging safer for children."
Experts recommend that families with children younger than 6 years old use traditional detergent instead of packets. "Many families don’t realize how toxic these highly concentrated laundry detergent packets are," says Marcel J. Casavant, MD a co-author of the study, chief of toxicology at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and medical director of the Central Ohio Poison Center. "Use traditional laundry detergent when you have young kids in your home. It isn’t worth the risk when there is a safer and effective alternative available."

There are many ways to make your own laundry detergent but not all formulas are non-toxic
How To Make Your Own Natural, Non-Toxic Laundry Detergent
2 1/4 cups of castile liquid soap (use dr. bronner's)
1/4 cup of distilled white vinegar
3/4 cup water
* Optional 1 tablespoon glycerin (if you require thickening agent) 
* Optional - 15 drops essential oil (i.e. lavender or any anti-bacterial/anti-fungal)

Whisk solution and it's ready to go. Use 1/4 cup for a regular load or 1/2 cup for an extra large load.
