Infectious Myth – Jim West on Ultrasound – 05.26.15

In Episode 60 David discusses the dangers of ultrasound with Jim West, author of an annotated bibliography of research from China. Once Western countries, in particular the US, moved past the evidence that ultrasound was neither safe nor effective, research shut down, and the negative findings were forgotten. But in China, starting in the 1980s, and continuing until recently, research on the biological effects of ultrasound on the fetus was quite common, performing ultrasound on fetuses that were about to be aborted, to avoid ethical issues. This research lends evidence that the extremely high frequencies of ultrasound, and the ever increasing power, can cause cellular changes at the microscopic level. And there is some epidemiological evidence to suggest that there are increased risks of diseases like autism in babies that had the most ultrasounds while in the womb.

Keeping Democracy Alive – 05.24.15


Did you know the US has some 300 troops on the ground there? That makes Moscow very nervous. Did you know about waves of political assassinations by the government we support? And that the European Union is not happy with our policy there either? Veteran international reporter Patrick L. Smith reveals what is behind the official, and of course misleading, narrative.

Love Lust And Laughter – 05.26.15

Dr. Lori Buckley – – returned to the program. Her book is “21 Decisions for Great Sex & a Happy Relationship” and can be purchased on AMAZON. Dr. Diana and Dr. Lori co-narrated GREAT SEX for A LIFETIME, volumes 1 & 2 available on For this edition of “Love, Lust & Laughter,” the focus was on performance and pleasure anxiety. We explored why folks resist sexual pleasure. Overwhelmed by sexual excitement, they may have difficulty relaxing and giving up control. They may be performance driven rather than experience drawn. Being in control may help folks feel safer, less vulnerable; yet, surrendering to sex can create so much more emotional and physical intimacy (as well as more orgasms)! Listen to this show for illumination around these issues!


Solartopia Green Power And Wellness Hour – 05.26.15



We talk with BECCA CLAUSSEN and DR. JERRY BROWN of the World Business Academy in Santa Barbara about the latest catastrophe from King CONG (Coal, Oil, Nukes, Gas) as tens of thousands of gallons of oil spill onto pristine California beaches.

For years the region’s citizens fought off shore drilling there. Now, exactly what they predicted has happened—a pipeline company has spewed its crude all over the beaches and into the ocean, killing marine life and harming our planet with still more poisons.

Meanwhile, the company’s owners go scott-free.

At the same time new revelations about earthquake faults surrounding Diablo Canyon have upped the ante on those shaky reactors’ license. Amidst chaos and death, we grow ever closer to shutting that horrific power plant.

Listen how from these two great activists, as we struggle to save the eco-systems without which we cannot survive.

Why the Justice Department Deserves A No-Confidence Vote

The U.S. Department of Justice—an agency specializing in recent years in negotiated settlements with criminal enterprises, including several police departments—has chalked up yet another “victory” for “police reform.”

The DOJ is expected to announce today that the City of Cleveland has agreed to remedy a pattern of civil rights violations and use of excessive force long associated with its police department. The settlement comes after the contentious acquittal Saturday (May 23) of Officer Michael Brelo, who fired 49 of 137 shots at Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams on Nov. 29, 2012. Russell’s car had backfired as he drove past a police station and as many as 62 police vehicles chased after him for 22 miles, ending in the carnage in which Brelo fired the final 15 shots.
