In Aaryn Belfer’s article [“A (mostly) satirical look at an alternate gun universe,” Oct. 14] she mentioned that, “20 first graders were gunned down in their Connecticut classroom in 2012.” That is incorrect. Please investigate. It was a false flag hoax, the whole thing was a sham. Sandy Hook was a lie! The evidence for this is overwhelming, but rather than dish it out to you, I encourage you to research and come to your own conclusions. A good place to start is the work of Wolfgang Halbig, a former school administrator. Mainstream media and the government are the worst sources to ascertain truth about anything related to shootings or terrorist events. Internet and some books are the keys, but one must use discernment and intelligence. Check out Halbig’s appearances on the Internet talk show with John B. Wells, “Caravan To Midnight.” And, do a Google search on the truth about Sandy Hook.

The Boston Marathon bombing was also a hoax. Before the race, the area where the “bomb” occurred was cordoned off. The actors were in their position, and the blast was a harmless explosion. The people shown having injuries were fake; they were crisis actors playing their part. One guy shown with a blownoff leg—it was laughably fake. He was already an amputee and the injury was totally bogus. You can research and even see all the photos and proofs of fakery on YouTube.

After both events there was the predictable call for gun control. I’m not in the National Rifle Association and I do not like guns, but this mendacious approach to gun control is unconscionable. And it’s just the tip of the iceberg. The Aurora, Colorado Batman theater shootings did not occur as described. There were at least two other guys, and the one guy was set up as the patsy. I encourage you and [editor] Ron Donoho [“Gun background checks, please,” Oct. 21] to step outside the box, research, investigate and do not be bamboozled by mainstream media, government and corporate lies. Millions of parents are filled with fear now because of the Sandy Hook lie. Turn off CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, etc., and wisely use the Internet, before it is controlled.

You know what they say, “If you keep doing the same thing, don’t expect a different result.” There is an elephant in the room when discussing gun control and the mass shootings since Sandy Hook: mental health. President Reagan, when he was governor of California, closed down many mental health facilities and funding for mental health and continued this into his presidency. Gun control will not prevent a mentally ill person from harming others. Let’s open our eyes to this pressing problem, now, before too many other lives are lost, including the mentally ill that are, by the way, somebody’s son or daughter.

A new study just out of Loma Linda University funded by the National Cancer Institute reported that vegans have lower rates of cancer than both meat-eaters and vegetarians [“Men, women, cancer,” Oct. 28]. Vegan women, for example, had 34 percent lower rates of female-specific cancers such as breast, cervical and ovarian cancer. And this was compared to a group of healthy omnivores who ate substantially less meat than the general population (two servings a week or more), as well as after controlling for non-dietary factors such as smoking, alcohol and a family history of cancer.

Why do vegans have such lower cancer risk? This is fascinating stuff: An elegant series of experiments was performed in which people were placed on different diets and their blood was then dripped on human cancer cells growing in a petri dish to see whose diet kicked more cancer butt. Women placed on plantbased diets for just two weeks, for example, were found to suppress the growth of three different types of breast cancer. The same blood coursing through these women’s bodies gained the power to significantly slow down and stop breast cancer cell growth thanks to just two weeks of eating a healthy plant-based diet! (Two weeks! Imagine what’s going on in your body after a year!) Similar results were found for men against prostate cancer (as well as against prostate enlargement).

Shame on the Susan G. Komen Foundation and other large groups that claim to be fighting these cancers for failing to mention this study and many other similar ones.
