U.S. farmers may stop planting GMOs after horrific crop yields

Some farmers across the United States may stop planting genetically modified crops after poor yields are increasing costs beyond what they can absorb.
According to Farmers Weekly, those farmers are considering returning to conventional seed after increased pest resistance and crop failures have meant smaller GM crop yields over non-GM counterparts.


Bhutan To Be First Country to Go 100% Organic

The Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan is known for a high level of citizen happiness, but it is doing something even more noteworthy in the near future. With Prime Minister Jigmi Thinley making a major announcement regarding the organic farming project at the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development which took place last month, the move has made national headlines. It’s called the National Organic Policy, and it is fueled by the simple concept that working ‘in harmony with nature’ will yield the most powerful results — all without sacrificing human health or the environment.
What this comes down to is no GMO, no pesticides, no herbicides, no fluoride-based spray products, no Monsanto intrusion at all, and a whole lot of high quality food available for the 700,000 citizens of Bhutan. Food that, at one time, was simply called ‘food’.

New technology can detect as little as 0.1 percent GMO contamination in crops, food

(NaturalNews) Identifying the presence of genetically-modified (GM) contaminants in food and food crops could soon become a whole lot easier and more accurate. Researchers from Lumora, a molecular diagnostics specialist company originating out of Cambridge University, have developed a unique method of illuminating and analyzing DNA strands that allows them to detect GM contaminants at levels as low as 0.1 percent, which is an astoundingly accurate rate.
Published in the journal BMC Biotechnology, a breakthrough new study explains how a combination of bioluminescence and isothermal amplification technology allows analysts to amplify DNA strands at a constant temperature, and generate real-time readouts of GM contamination levels in food and food crops. And the best part is that mobile devices equipped with the technology can essentially perform these scans and analyses on the fly.


Prostate cases treble in 20 years: But as more are diagnosed with cancer, fewer men die

Earlier this week American researchers claimed that surgery to remove prostate cancer is often ineffective. A study involving 731 patients found that those who had operations were only 3 per cent more likely still to be alive 12 years later compared to those who didn't have treatment.

Vitamin D Emerges as Treatment for Prostate Cancer - Cuts PSA Levels by Half

In 1992, researchers also suggested that higher vitamin D consumption in Japan might account for lower rates of prostate cancer there, relative to the United States. Japanese men consume more fatty fish, which is high in both vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids that increase the vitamin's stability in the body, and soy, which slows the rate at which bodily vitamin D breaks down.
Since then, studies have found that many prostate cancer cells contain vitamin D receptors, and that vitamin D can inhibit the growth of some of these cells.
Researchers also hypothesize that vitamin D might inhibit the action of the androgen receptor, which produces male sex hormones that have been linked to the disease.


Indian Government Acknowledges Cell Phone Risks United States Doesn’t

It is well know amongst well researched individuals that cell phones emit radiation.
However, the FCC and the US Government continue to do everything in their powers to not let this issue come to light claiming tests are flawed (therefore we don’t know the truth).
ABC reports;
A government test used to measure the radiation people absorb from their cellphones might underestimate the levels to which most adults and children are exposed, according to a group of doctors and researchers whose stated mission is to promote awareness of environmental health risks they believe may be linked to cancer.
Researchers from the Environmental Health Trust released a report this morning noting that the Federal Communications Commission test to determine radiation exposure is flawed.
The reason for the discrepancy, the group says, is that the process to determine radiation exposure from cellphones involves the use of a mannequin model that they say approximates a 6-foot-2, 220-pound person. Because the model represents only about 3 percent of the population, the authors report, the test will not accurately predict the radiation exposure of the other 97 percent of the population, including children. The group is pushing for a new testing system to measure radiation exposure in a wider range of consumers.
Apparently the government of India gets it. India is issuing a mandatory requirement to cell phone manufactures requiring them to document the dangers of radiation emissions from mobile devices.
A ZD Net article reports;
The debate on whether cell phones and cell towers are injurious to health has no decisive winner. The companies say it’s all good; the skeptics say these companies have deep pockets that make it appear all good. The role of a government in this discussion therefore becomes more important and the Indian government has decided not to sit quiet on this topic. The government has directed cell phone manufacturers to display radiation information on the cell phones.
Earlier this year, the government came out strong on the topic of cell phone radiation and instructed all phone manufacturers to limit the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) to 1.6 Watt/Kg. SAR is the rate at which a human body absorbs energy due to an electromagnetic field. The rate set by the government of India is 1.6 Watt/Kg per 1 g of human tissue. The Federal Communications Commission in the US has prescribed the same levels for cell phone manufacturers in the US; the EU, however, is different.The new SAR levels will be in effect starting September of this year and OEMs are expected to have the SAR mentioned on the handsets going forward. The rule applies to all handsets sold in India irrespective of where they are manufactured.


Harvard Medical School to Face Trial for Research Fraud

Dr. Kenneth Jones, the chief statistician for the NIH grant, blew the whistle after realizing that measurements used to demonstrate the reliability of the study had been secretly altered. Without these alterations, Dr. Jones explained, there was no statistical significance to the major findings of the study. After Dr. Jones insisted that the altered measurements be subjected to a reliability study and that the results could not be presented as part of a $15 million federal grant extension application, he was terminated and his career came to an end.
The First Circuit overturned a lower court decision finding that the court had failed to consider substantial evidence of fraud. This evidence established that Harvard knew of the falsifications and failed to take action to correct or disavow the data.


UK aid helps to fund forced sterilisation of India's poor

Yet a working paper published by the UK's Department for International Development in 2010 cited the need to fight climate change as one of the key reasons for pressing ahead with such programmes. The document argued that reducing population numbers would cut greenhouse gases, although it warned that there were "complex human rights and ethical issues" involved in forced population control.

Scientists Who Created Mutant Bird Flu Speak at Royal Society Conference

Yoshihiro Kawaoka, professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison revealed in a conference at the Royal Society last month how he created a hybrid bird flu that could spread by exposure to coughing and sneezing.
Kawaoka created the hybrid flu strain by integrating the H5N1 bird flu with swine flu. The same swine flu that caused the pandemic in 2009.
Foucher remarked that he was interested in the ability to control a virus and its ability to infect people.
Both Kawaoka and Foucher spoke at a conference at the Royal Society. This is the same globalist group that came forward to endorse depopulation worldwide as an answer to environmental stability.

According to the Royal Society:
the world’s human population, coupled with unprecedented levels of consumption present profound challenges to human health and well-being, and the natural environment.


The patients prescribed up to 25 different drugs a day with devastating results

The annual number of prescriptions per head of population has increased from 11.9 in 2001 to 18.3 per person in 2011.
Most of this increase has been in prescribing for the elderly. Almost half the over-65s have three chronic health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and arthritis. It’s quite common for this age group to be taking eight to 12 different types of medication daily.
Taking lots of different prescription pills and medicines — known as polypharmacy — is a major issue for this age group, says Dr Chris Fox, consultant old age psychiatrist at the Norfolk and Suffolk Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and a senior lecturer at the University of East Anglia.


Ritalin use soars fourfold in U.K. as psychologists warn of untested drug cocktails

Prescriptions of Ritalin for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder have quadrupled in a decade, prompting fears it is being pushed on children at the expense of alternative treatments and without appreciation of long-term effects.

Big Ag, Monsanto take over research universities and turn them into pro-industry propaganda machines

(NaturalNews) Back in the old days before food and agricultural corporations consolidated into the behemoths we know them as today, agricultural institutions of higher learning were dedicated to conducting unbiased research into cutting-edge food production and crop systems that benefited society as a whole. But today, these former "land-grant" universities have largely mutated into pro-industry, propaganda machines funded and controlled by corporate agro-giants like Monsanto that steer research efforts in favor of genetically-modified (GMOs) and chemical-based crop systems.

Vaccine bombshell: Baby monkeys given standard doses of popular vaccines develop autism symptoms

If vaccines play absolutely no role in the development of childhood autism, a claim made by many medical authorities today, then why are some of the most popular vaccines commonly administered to children demonstrably causing autism in animal primates? This is the question many people are now asking after a recent study conducted by scientists at the University of Pittsburgh (UP) in Pennsylvania revealed that many of the infant monkeys given standard doses of childhood vaccines as part of the new research developed autism symptoms.
For their analysis, Laura Hewitson and her colleagues at UP conducted the type of proper safety research on typical childhood vaccination schedules that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) should have conducted -- but never has -- for such regimens. And what this brave team discovered was groundbreaking, as it completely deconstructs the mainstream myth that vaccines are safe and pose no risk of autism.
This is why yesterday's story about a "school" in Boston that "treats" autistic children with electric shocks (one was strapped to a gurney and shocked for hours, resulting in permanent damage) angered me. Our medical establishment made those kids autistic, then locked them up and tortured them to protect their dirty little secret and their profits.

Swine flu vaccine 'linked to' sleeping disorder

The pandemic swine flu vaccine has been linked to narcolepsy after a study found children who had been vaccinated with 13 times more likely to suffer from the condition.

Teen dies from flu after receiving flu shot

A second Minnesota teenager has reportedly died from complications of infection with influenza Type A during this current flu season, prompting health officials across the state to urge the public to get flu shots for their own protection. But missing from many of the news reports on this tragedy is the fact that the child in question, 14-year-old Carly Christenson, had already been vaccinated for influenza before flu season even started, proving the utter failure of flu shots to protect against the flu.

Two vaccine study participants die during trials of the first GMO flu vaccine

Flublok, a new vaccine for influenza, is now available and is the first vaccine ever to contain genetically-modified (GM) proteins derived from insect cells. Flublok is trivalent, which means it contains GM proteins from three different influenza strains. According to clinical data provided in the vaccine’s package insert by its manufacturer, the Protein Sciences Corporation (PSC), two study participants actually died during trials of the vaccine.
The nerve disease Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GSB) is listed on the shot as a potential side effect. The “Warnings and Precautions,” section of the vaccine’s literature states, “If Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) has occurred within six weeks of receipt of a prior influenza vaccine, the decision to give Flublock should be based on careful consideration of the potential benefits and risks.” Other possible side effects include allergic reactions, respiratory infections, headaches, fatigue, altered immunocompetence, rhinorrhea, and myalgia.

Government tyranny: Illinois Department of Agriculture secretly destroys beekeeper's bees and 15 years of research proving Monsanto's Roundup kills bees

(NaturalNews) An Illinois beekeeper with more than a decade's worth of expertise about how to successfully raise organic, chemical-free bees is the latest victim of flagrant government tyranny. According to the Prairie Advocate, Terrence "Terry" Ingram of Apple River, Ill., owner of Apple Creek Apiaries, recently had his bees and beehives stolen from him by the Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDofA), as well as more than 15 years' worth of research proving Monsanto's Roundup to be the cause of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) destroyed.

Gates, GAVI, and WHO Administered Fake Malaria Vaccines to Asia, India and Africa

Susanne Posel, Contributor
Activist Post

A new report released found that the majority pharmaceutical drugs used to combat malaria are bogus or of poor quality .
The Fogarty International Center at the US national Institutes of Health (NH) funded a study that found a shocking 20 to 42% of the malaria vaccines used in Southeast Asia and sub-Saharan Africa are of substandard quality or absolutely fake.
By researching studies and publications, the report explains that, according to the Southeast Asian countries, 36% of the 1,437 samples of malaria vaccines were counterfeit.
Another 30% of samples could not test positive for the pharmaceutical compounds that would be in a malaria vaccine...

Stoned To Death: Calcium Supplements Proven To Kill

Activist Post

New research published this week in the journal Heart has confirmed the findings of two controversial studies on calcium supplementation and heart attack risk published in the British Medical Journal last year, and which found a 24-27% increased risk of heart attack for those who took 500 mg of elemental calcium a day.[1] [2]
The results of this newest review, involving 24,000 people between the ages of 35 and 64, were even more alarming. Those participants who took a regular calcium supplement increased their risk of having a heart attack by 86% versus those who took no calcium supplements at all...

Pot Legalization Foe Getting Rich off the Drug War

The lobbyist who helped kill California's Proposition 19, the 2010 ballot measure that would have legalized recreational marijuana, has constructed an entire business model around keeping pot illegal. While fighting against the proposed law, lobbyist John Lovell accepted nearly $400,000 from a wide array of police unions, some of which he also represented in attempting to steer millions of federal dollars toward California's marijuana suppression programs.

Flu Vaccine Causes Death Of 7 Year Old Kaylynne Matten

Even though many of studies link the disease that killed little Kaylynne Matten to the Flu vaccine, information about her death is being suppressed.

FDA admits mercury in cosmetic products is extremely toxic - so how is it safe in dental fillings, vaccines?

he U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued an updated warning about skin care products that may contain mercury, including many anti-aging, smoothing, skin-lightening, and beauty lotions and creams sold at ethnic beauty shops and online. Some of the tainted personal care products, most of which are imported, have been found to contain mercury levels far higher than acceptable limits, including one product that reportedly contained 131,000 times the acceptable limit of mercury.

Monsanto’s Roundup is Killing Human Kidney Cells

Anthony Gucciardi
Activist Post

Monsanto’s ‘biopesticide’ known as Bt is not only developing mutated insects and requiring excessive pesticide use, but new findings show that it is also killing human kidney cells — even in low doses.
Amazingly, Monsanto’s superweed-breeding Roundup also has the same effect. Scientists have demonstrated in new research that the Bt pesticide, in addition to Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Roundup, exhibit direct toxicity to human cells. The findings add to the long list of hazardous effects presented by Monsanto’s genetically modified creations...

The Vermont Senate recently passed a bill that is now on its way to the state House, which, if signed into law, would end the ability for parents to avoid getting their children vaccinated based on philosophical grounds.
This means that children will not be able to go to school if their parents refuse the vaccines, as they can no longer be exempt from the requirement based on parents' philosophical opposition...

World Renown Heart Surgeon Speaks Out On What Really Causes Heart Disease

March 1, 2012
We physicians with all our training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is. I freely admit to being wrong.. As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries,today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact.
I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol.
The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.
It Is Not Working!
These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible. The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated.
The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences.
Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before.
Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 75 million Americans currently suffer from heart disease, 20 million have diabetes and 57 million have pre-diabetes. These disorders are affecting younger and younger people in greater numbers every year.
Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.
Inflammation is not complicated -- it is quite simply your body's natural defence to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body from these bacterial and viral invaders. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins or foods the human body was never designed to process,a condition occurs called chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is beneficial.
What thoughtful person would willfully expose himself repeatedly to foods or other substances that are known to cause injury to the body? Well,smokers perhaps, but at least they made that choice willfully.
The rest of us have simply followed the recommended mainstream dietthat is low in fat and high in polyunsaturated fats and carbohydrates, not knowing we were causing repeated injury to our blood vessels. This repeated injury creates chronic inflammation leading to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity.
Let me repeat that: The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine.
What are the biggest culprits of chronic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flour and all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods.
Take a moment to visualize rubbing a stiff brush repeatedly over soft skin until it becomes quite red and nearly bleeding. you kept this up several times a day, every day for five years. If you could tolerate this painful brushing, you would have a bleeding, swollen infected area that became worse with each repeated injury. This is a good way to visualize the inflammatory process that could be going on in your body right now.
Regardless of where the inflammatory process occurs, externally or internally, it is the same. I have peered inside thousands upon thousands of arteries. A diseased artery looks as if someone took a brush and scrubbed repeatedly against its wall. Several times a day, every day, the foods we eat create small injuries compounding into more injuries, causing the body to respond continuously and appropriately with inflammation.
While we savor the tantalizing taste of a sweet roll, our bodies respond alarmingly as if a foreign invader arrived declaring war. Foods loaded with sugars and simple carbohydrates, or processed withomega-6 oils for long shelf life have been the mainstay of the American diet for six decades. These foods have been slowly poisoning everyone.
How does eating a simple sweet roll create a cascade of inflammation to make you sick?
Imagine spilling syrup on your keyboard and you have a visual of what occurs inside the cell. When we consume simple carbohydrates such as sugar, blood sugar rises rapidly. In response, your pancreas secretes insulin whose primary purpose is to drive sugar into each cell where it is stored for energy. If the cell is full and does not need glucose, it is rejected to avoid extra sugar gumming up the works.
When your full cells reject the extra glucose, blood sugar rises producing more insulin and the glucose converts to stored fat.
What does all this have to do with inflammation? Blood sugar is controlled in a very narrow range. Extra sugar molecules attach to a variety of proteins that in turn injure the blood vessel wall. This repeated injury to the blood vessel wall sets off inflammation. When you spike your blood sugar level several times a day, every day, it is exactly like taking sandpaper to the inside of your delicate blood vessels.
While you may not be able to see it, rest assured it is there. I saw it in over 5,000 surgical patients spanning 25 years who all shared one common denominator -- inflammation in their arteries.
Let’s get back to the sweet roll. That innocent looking goody not only contains sugars, it is baked in one of many omega-6 oils such as soybean. Chips and fries are soaked in soybean oil; processed foods are manufactured with omega-6 oils for longer shelf life. While omega-6’s are essential -they are part of every cell membrane controlling what goes in and out of the cell -- they must be in the correct balance with omega-3’s.
If the balance shifts by consuming excessive omega-6, the cell membrane produces chemicals called cytokines that directly cause inflammation.
Today’s mainstream American diet has produced an extreme imbalance of these two fats. The ratio of imbalance ranges from 15:1 to as high as 30:1 in favor of omega-6. That’s a tremendous amount of cytokines causing inflammation. In today’s food environment, a 3:1 ratio would be optimal and healthy.
To make matters worse, the excess weight you are carrying from eating these foods creates overloaded fat cells that pour out large quantities of pro-inflammatory chemicals that add to the injury caused by having high blood sugar. The process that began with a sweet roll turns into a vicious cycle over time that creates heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and finally, Alzheimer’s disease, as the inflammatory process continues unabated.
There is no escaping the fact that the more we consume prepared and processed foods, the more we trip the inflammation switch little by little each day. The human body cannot process, nor was it designed to consume, foods packed with sugars and soaked in omega-6 oils.
There is but one answer to quieting inflammation, and that is returning to foods closer to their natural state. To build muscle, eat more protein. Choose carbohydrates that are very complex such as colorful fruits and vegetables. Cut down on or eliminate inflammation- causing omega-6 fats like corn and soybean oil and the processed foods that are made from them.
One tablespoon of corn oil contains 7,280 mg of omega-6; soybean contains 6,940 mg. Instead, use olive oil or butter from grass-fed beef.
Animal fats contain less than 20% omega-6 and are much less likely to cause inflammation than the supposedly healthy oils labelled polyunsaturated. Forget the “science” that has been drummed into your head for decades. The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent. The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat is even more absurd today.
The cholesterol theory led to the no-fat, low-fat recommendations that in turn created the very foods now causing an epidemic of inflammation. Mainstream medicine made a terrible mistake when it advised people to avoid saturated fat in favor of foods high in omega-6 fats. We now have an epidemic of arterial inflammation leading to heart disease and other silent killers.
What you can do is choose whole foods your grandmother served and not those your mom turned to as grocery store aisles filled with manufactured foods. By eliminating inflammatory foods and adding essential nutrients from fresh unprocessed food, you will reverse years of damage in your arteries and throughout your body from consuming the typical American diet.

Mystery virus kills thousands of lambs

Thousands of lambs have been killed by a new virus that is threatening the survival of many British farms
The Schmallenberg virus causes lambs to be born dead or with serious deformities such as fused limbs and twisted necks, which mean they cannot survive. Scientists are urgently trying to find out how the disease, which also affects cattle, spreads and how to fight it, as the number of farms affected increases by the day. So far, 74 farms across southern and eastern England have been hit by the virus, which arrived in this country in January.

Sleeping pills increase risk of death: study

DOCTORS are calling for a rethink of the use of sleeping pills after a large study showed that the drugs carry a substantially increased risk of death for those who are prescribed them.
Commonly used sleeping pills, or “hypnotics”, such as temazepam and zolpidem, which is prescribed for short-term insomnia, are associated with more than a fourfold risk of death, according to the study published in the BMJ Open journal.
The study was carried out in the US, where up to 10 per cent of the adult population took sleeping pills in 2010. The authors estimate that sleeping pills may have been associated with 320,000 to 507,000 extra deaths in the US that year.

Detroit teen given four vaccinations, including Gardasil, by her school without mother's permission

Marcus Garvey Academy in Detroit, Mich., and St. John Providence Health System are in hot water after a student was forcibly administered four vaccinations recently without her mother's permission.

BMJ admits antipsychotic drugs kill far more people than terrorism

Based on the facts, U.S. Transportation Security Administration pat-downs and naked body scans belong at drug company factories, doctors' offices, and drug stores, rather than at American airports. A new report published in the British Medical Journal has found that dangerous antipsychotic drugs are responsible for killing at least 1,800 dementia patients a year, which means that more people are killed by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved dementia drugs every two years than died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Toxic rapeseed and other low-grade oils with additives are being passed off as olive oil

Most imported extra-virgin olive oil appears questionable in authenticity
The University of California, Davis published a report on olive oil back in 2010 entitled Tests indicate that imported 'extra virgin' olive oil often fails international and USDA standards. In this report, researchers found that 69 percent of imported and ten percent of California-based oils labeled as olive oil did not pass International Olive Council (IOC) and US Department of Agriculture sensory standards for extra virgin olive oil.

Of those brands tested, the following failed to meet extra-virgin olive oil standards:
• Bertolli
• Carapelli
• Filippo Berio
• Mazzola
• Mezzetta
• Newman's Own
• Pompeian
• Rachel Ray
• Safeway
• Star

Monsanto's Roundup herbicide found to destroy testosterone, male fertility

A recent study published in the Journal of Toxicology in Vitro has found that, even at very low levels, Monsanto's herbicide formula Roundup destroys testosterone and ultimately leads to male infertility. The findings add to the more than 25 other diseases known to be linked to Roundup, which include DNA damage, birth defects, liver dysfunction, and cancer.

Toxic BPA Now Linked to Leading Killer Heart Disease

Although BPA’s ubiquitous use in today’s world makes it difficult to pinpoint it for causing many health and environmental complications, research gives reason to believe it is indeed a cause of health many complications.
Just recently, research has potentially tied the chemical, often used in plastics and food can linings, to an increased risk of heart disease. Researchers also found that individuals who have heart disease were more likely to have higher urinary concentrations of BPA, which has been shown to spike by 1,200 percent after ingesting soup from canned goods. ..

Sorry Gates: GMO Crops Proven to be Ineffective at Fighting World Hunger

Anthony Gucciardi
Activist Post

Monsanto shareholder Bill Gates has argued that GMOs are the solution to world hunger, going as far as to say that they are actually needed to fight worldwide starvation. Unfortunately for Gates, who back in 2010 bought 500,000 shares of the company he is now promoting in mainstream media as the solution to the world’s problems, a team of 900 scientists have found that GMO crops are actually not effective at fighting world hunger. In fact, the massive team found that Monsanto’s seeds, which have lead to thousands of farmer suicides due to excessive costs and failure to yield crops, were outperformed by traditional “agro-ecological” farming practices.
he same GMOs that have been linked to organ damage, mutated insects, and a host of other issues. 

Bill Gates Knew of These Findings Beforehand

The findings of the IAASTD regarding the ineffectiveness of GMO crops were published on April 15, 2008. That is long before Bill Gates’ address to the public in late January of this year. Did Monsanto stockholder Gates ignore this information, or does he believe the 900 scientists to be incorrect?

Perhaps the evidence generated from the expert team is not enough. In that case, then Gates should look no farther than the Union of Concerned Scientists.

Another massive research organization, the Union of Concerned Scientists also examined the true yield of GMO crops, only to find that the altered crops do not produce increased yields over the long run — despite their excessive cost and extreme danger to health and environment. The lack of scientific support behind the GMO crops was so startling to the Union that they documented all the details in a 2009 report entitled ”Failure to Yield.”

GMO crops are not only ineffective at fighting world hunger, but are a genuine threat to public health. Even if they were effective at feeding more individuals than traditional farming practices, would they really want to consume it?

Bill Gates appears to have the interests of massive corporations in mind when perpetuating the myth that GMOs are the answer to fighting starvation.

The vaccine-pushing, disease scare-mongering agency known as the CDC has put out a stunning piece of propaganda attacking fresh milk (raw dairy), claiming it is “150 times more dangerous” than pasteurized milk. This is all part of their anti-American agenda to crush food freedom and criminalize fundamental farming practices upon which this very nation was founded. (Yes, George Washington and the founding fathers drank raw milk, grew hemp and even smoked a little weed as medicine.)
But what the CDC won’t dare reveal to the public is the far more horrifying truth: Pasteurized dairy is produced in the dirtiest milk factories imaginable, where blood, pus, e.coli and other truly dangerous pathogens are routinely bottled into milk containers and fed to consumers.

Monsanto's GMO Corn Linked To Organ Failure, Study Reveals

In a study released by the International Journal of Biological Sciences, analyzing the effects of genetically modified foods on mammalian health, researchers found that agricultural giant Monsanto's GM corn is linked to organ damage in rats.
Monsanto gathered its own crude statistical data after conducting a 90-day study, even though chronic problems can rarely be found after 90 days, and concluded that the corn was safe for consumption. The stamp of approval may have been premature, however.
Which tends to happen when money-junkies are allowed to make those kinds of decisions.

Millions of Pounds of Toxic Poison to Flood US Farmland

The EPA says that air emissions of dioxin have decreased by 90% since the 1980?s, but dioxin is dangerous at any level. The study appears to omit any analysis of dioxin transmission in water and land. The danger is growing because Dow AgroScience has received preliminary USDA approval for its 2,4-D herbicide resistant GMO corn. This means that dioxin contaminated 2,4-D herbicide will drench US farm land and pollute water supplies if the crops are widely planted.
We cannot take it for granted that food sources are safe anymore.
The only remedy is to tell places where we normally buy our food that we will not accept GMO foods, or foods which are tainted with dioxin-contaminated herbicides. Try, as much as possible, to go with locally sources, natural foods.
Remember: corporations are entities through which money is made, which have no conscience or morality whatsoever.
It is interesting to note that at the MONSANTO corporate offices in the UK, no GMO foods are served in their cafeteria, and this ban goes back to 2007!
The staff cafeteria at biotech-crop Monsanto’s UK headquarters reportedly banned GM foods from the menu back in 1999. The private catering company running the canteen, Sutcliffe Catering, owned by Granada Food Services, told its clients, including Monsanto, that it would no longer use foods containing GM soya or maize because of “customer concerns” about the technology. “We have taken the steps to ensure that you, the customer, can feel confident in the food we serve,” Granada told its customers.

Common Aspirin Can Cause Intestinal Bleeding, Deadly Stroke

Most people have taken an aspirin at one point or another in their life. Whether it was for a headache, a fever or any other pain, its typical use as a popular drug is something almost pervasive in the modern West.
Aspirin is also recommended to older patients as a daily use treatment for inflammation and heart health, but there are a number of considerations that should be pointed out when accepting or advocating the use of aspirin in general...

New FDA analysis finds lead in all 400 lipstick products tested

An analysis commissioned by the FDA of 400 popular lipstick products has alarmingly found at least some lead in every single product. The amount of lead found in 380 of the lipstick products tested was greater than the maximum 0.1 parts per million (ppm) allowed in candy bars - in some instances as much as 70 times greater. However, the FDA stated that it did not consider the lead content to represent any danger because lipstick is not intended to be ingested.

Study: Combination tetanus, whooping cough vaccine linked to seizures in babies

If you choose to have your baby vaccinated with the combination diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough (pertussis), polio and Haemophilus influenzae type 2 vaccine, a mega-jab collectively known as the DTap-IPV-Hib, your child may be at an increased risk of having a vaccine-induced seizure. A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association has identified a clear link between the vaccine and the onset of fever-related seizures, which the authors claim will not cause long-term damage.

Years Ago, The Military Sprayed Germs on U.S. Cities
2001-10-22, Wall Street Journal

Much of what the Pentagon knows about the effects of bacterial attacks on cities came from ... secret tests conducted on San Francisco and other American cities from the 1940s through the 1960s, experts say. In the 1950s, Army researchers dispersed Serratia on Panama City, Fla., and Key West, Fla., with no known illnesses resulting. They also released fluorescent compounds over Minnesota and other Midwestern states to see how far they would spread in the atmosphere. The particles of zinc-cadmium-sulfide -- now a known cancer-causing agent -- were detected more than 1,000 miles away in New York state, the Army told the Senate hearings. In New York, military researchers in 1966 spread Bacillus subtilis variant Niger, also believed to be harmless, in the subway system by dropping lightbulbs filled with the bacteria onto tracks in stations in midtown Manhattan. The bacteria were carried for miles throughout the subway system. The Army kept the biological-warfare tests secret until word of them was leaked to the press in the 1970s. Between 1949 and 1969 ... open-air tests of biological agents were conducted 239 times, according to the Army's testimony in 1977 before the Senate's subcommittee on health. In 80 of those experiments, the Army said it used live bacteria that its researchers at the time thought were harmless. Several medical experts have since claimed that an untold number of people may have gotten sick as a result of the germ tests. These researchers say even benign agents can mutate into unpredictable pathogens once exposed to the elements.

BPA Blood Levels Spike by 1,200 Percent After Eating Canned Foods

Anthony Gucciardi
Activist Post

Une récente étude américaine a révélé des taux de bisphénol A supérieurs de 1.200% chez des consommateurs de soupe en conserve. C'est la première fois que la concentration de BPA est quantifiée après ingestion de nourriture en conserve.

A l'heure où l'interdiction du bisphénol A dans tous les contenants alimentaires suscite le débat, cette découverte pourrait bien conforter les autorités à rapidement éliminer ce composé des circuits de production. Des chercheurs de l'université de Harvard aux Etats-Unis se sont en effet intéressés aux taux de bisphénol A que peut engendrer la consommation d'aliments en conserve. Pour cela, ils ont demandé à 75 personnes de boire pendant cinq jours, soit de la soupe en conserve, soit de la soupe fraiche et ce, sans changer leurs autres habitudes alimentaires. Ils ont ensuite prélevé pour chaque participant des échantillons d'urine dans lesquels ils ont mesuré les taux de BPA.

Les scientifiques ont ainsi constaté que la concentration de ce composé soupçonné d'être un perturbateur endocrinien, était supérieure de 1.221% chez les consommateurs de soupe en conserve. "Nous savons depuis un moment que consommer des boissons qui sont restées longtemps dans certains récipients en plastique dur accroissait la présence de bisphénol A dans votre corps", explique Jenny Carwile, l'un des co-auteurs de l'étude publiée dans la revue Journal of the American Medical Association. Mais c'est la première fois que des chercheurs quantifient "le taux de bisphénol A dans le corps humain après ingestion de nourriture en conserve".

"Notre étude suggère que la nourriture en conserve pourrait être un sujet d'inquiétude plus important encore, surtout en raison de son usage très répandu", ajoute la spécialiste citée par l'AFP. Toutefois, les recherches montrent que le bisphénol A est éliminé dans les urines et donc que tout pic reste temporaire. Et les chercheurs n'ont pas déterminé quelle quantité du composant restait plus longuement dans le corps après la consommation de ces conserves. Ils soulignent ainsi que d'autres études seraient nécessaires pour évaluer le taux de BPA issu de la nourriture en conserve et qui reste réellement dans l'organisme.

New research from Harvard University has found that eating canned soup can spike your urinary bisphenol A (BPA) levels by 1,200 percent compared to fresh soup. Described as “one of the first to quantify BPA levels in humans after ingestion of canned foods,” the study examines the volume in which cancer-causing BPA contaminates canned goods across the world.

The research appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association November issue. BPA of course has been linked to countless diseases,
including breast cancer and fertility defects that can lead to infertility. In fact 130 studies have been conducted on the link between BPA and breast cancer alone — all of which confirmed the relationship. 

BPA Content of Canned Foods may Surpass Plastic Products

Harvard researchers not only identified the massive amount of BPA present in canned foods, but they also compared the content to BPA levels present in water bottles and other plastic containers.

What they found was quite shocking: it appears that canned foods may be presenting an even greater risk to your health than many plastics due to the extremely high BPA content. This is also particularly true due to the widespread usage of canned goods, which are a staple in the diet of many individuals worldwide.
'We’ve known for a while that drinking beverages that have been stored in certain hard plastics can increase the amount of BPA in your body,' said lead author Jenny Carwile, a doctoral student in the Department of Epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health. 'This study suggests that canned foods may be an even greater concern, especially given their wide use.'
The study examined 75 participants, eating a 12-ounce serving of either fresh or canned soup for 5 days in a row. They were instructed to keep the rest of their nutritional habits the same. After a 2-day break, the groups switched and ate the opposite type of canned soup. A urine analysis then showed that the canned soup eaters have 1,221 percent higher levels of BPA than the individuals who ate the fresh soup.

In order to avoid exposing yourself to such high levels of BPA, preparing your own meals with fresh ingredients and avoiding food cans altogether is the best option. However, you can also contact individual brands and ask if their cans contain or are lined with BPA.

If you have been eating from cans or plastic containers like the majority of consumers, there is also a natural solution. There exists a number of effective and free ways to
rid the presence of BPA from your body, using health-promoting substances.

Now doctors want to ban smoking in cars... even if you're on your own

True fact: A common ingredient in commercial breads is derived from human hair harvested in China

(NaturalNews) If you read the ingredients label on a loaf of bread, you will usually find an ingredient listed there as L-cysteine. This is a non-essential amino acid added to many baked goods as a dough conditioner in order to speed industrial processing. It's usually not added directly to flour intended for home use, but you'll find it throughout commercial breads such as pizza dough, bread rolls and pastries.
While some L-cysteine is directly synthesized in laboratories, most of it is extracted from a cheap and abundant natural protein source: human hair. The hair is dissolved in acid and L-cysteine is isolated through a chemical process, then packaged and shipped off to commercial bread producers. Besides human hair, other sources of L-cysteine include chicken feathers, duck feathers, cow horns and petroleum byproducts.

Asthma Drugs Kill More than Asthma, FDA Ignores Risk

Anthony Gucciardi
Activist Post

Following a long line of reports finding pharmaceutical drugs to be deadlier than traffic accidents and many illegal drugs, it has now come out that many asthma drugs are actually killing more patients than asthma itself.

It may be hard for you to believe, but many popular asthma drugs like Symbicort, Advair Diskus, Serevent Diskus, Dulera and Foradil actually warn customers on their labels that they cause an increased “risk of death from asthma problems.”

Killing around 4,000 per year conservatively, the drugs are killing more people than the disease itself.

It may sound outlandish, but so is the fact that the FDA has known this information for years.
Of course the FDA has failed to pull the drugs from the market, while doctors are calling for a complete ban of the pharmaceuticals.

Instead of listening to the warnings of many doctors and recalling or even just ending the production of these products, the FDA has simply forced the makers to include heightened warning labels on the drugs while holding several hearings over the possibility of a ban yet following through with nothing.

For an organization that is supposed to protect your health, the FDA seems to be allowing deadly pharmaceuticals to run rampant.

The insane history of pharmaceutical death statistics

The history of pharmaceutical-induced fatalities is quite extensive, and truly tragic. Most shocking is the fact that legal drugs like painkillers have actually killed more individuals than illegal drugs like cocaine and heroin combined.

With 3 million deaths from pharmaceuticals and 0 from vitamins over the past 27 years, it is clear that the media campaign intended to demonize high-quality, organic-based multivitamins and supplements is absolutely ludicrous. Instead, the media should be focused on the needless deaths of many individuals taking deadly legal drugs who unknowingly trust the well-intended advice of their doctor.

With painkillers now more deadly than cocaine and heroin, shouldn’t we change the direction of our ‘war on drugs’?

How Big Pharmaceutical Companies "Legally" Experiment On Humans

A pharmaceutical company has a new miracle drug with doubtful results when tried on rats and chimps.
The only way the company can learn if the drug works is by trying it out on humans.
The company doctors-up the trial results and applies to their friendly FDA for approval. The FDA approves it.
Thousands of humans are told this is a miracle drug for a currently incurable disease. Doctors are handsomely paid to push the new drug on their unsuspecting guinea pig patients. These humans rush to get the new drug.
A short time later, ten humans die and many more are permanently disabled.
The FDA investigates and finds the new miracle drug is the problem. They pull the drug from the market.

U.S. Government Considers Testing Anthrax Vaccine On Children

American children set to be used as Big Pharma guinea pigs.
http://theintelhub.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/anthrax.jpgThe Intel Hub
October 26, 2011

The U.S. government is now considering the possibility of testing the anthrax vaccine on American school children. The tests would be done to determine if the vaccine causes adverse reactions in children.
That’s right, our children are now in line to be test guinea pigs for the Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex and their continuous vaccine soft kill operation.
Homeland Security Newswire
The government’s anthrax vaccine has only been tested on adults and members of the board argued that there had been no tests to determine the effectiveness of the vaccine on children.
According to Dr. Nicole Lurie, the assistant secretary for preparedness and response at the Department of Health and Human Services, waiting until a national crisis to use the vaccine for the first time would be problematic as it presents “an array of logistical, clinical and communication challenges during a public health crisis.”

No anthrax vaccine testing on children for now

Should the anthrax vaccine be tested in children? It will be a while longer before the government decides.
An advisory board said Friday that ethical issues need to be resolved — but if that can be accomplished the vaccine can be tested in children to be sure it's safe and to learn the proper dose in case it's needed in a terrorist attack.
Because of concerns that terrorists might use the potentially deadly bacteria, the government has stockpiled the vaccine. It has been widely tested on adults but never on children.

Study: Lifespan Declined In Hundreds Of U.S. Counties

The U.S. estimate actually dropped from 2004 to 2005, noted Bob Anderson of the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics. Given that downward blip - and the fact that statistics fluctuate more when you're dealing with smaller populations - it's not unexpected to see some declines at the local level, he said.
The study found that life expectancy for women fell significantly in 702 of the nation's more than 3,100 counties. The largest declines - by nearly 2 years - were in Mississippi's Madison County, near Jackson, and the adjacent Hughes and Okfuskee counties in eastern Oklahoma.
Life expectancy dropped for men in 251 counties, by more than 2 years in Kentucky's Perry County in Appalachia and Mississippi's Madison.

Is this mass psychological drugging the reason most Americans cannot find their rage at how madly the US Government has screwed them over?


Mass Psychosis in the US

It is anything but a coincidence that the explosion in antipsychotic use coincides with the pharmaceutical industry's development of a new class of medications known as "atypical antipsychotics." Beginning with Zyprexa, Risperdal, and Seroquel in the 1990s, followed by Abilify in the early 2000s, these drugs were touted as being more effective than older antipsychotics like Haldol and Thorazine. More importantly, they lacked the most noxious side effects of the older drugs - in particular, the tremors and other motor control problems.

God gene

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The God gene hypothesis proposes that human beings inherit a set of genes that predisposes them towards spiritual or mystic experiences. The idea has been postulated by geneticist Dean Hamer, the director of the Gene Structure and Regulation Unit at the U.S. National Cancer Institute, who has written a book on the subject titled, The God Gene: How Faith is Hardwired into our Genes.

Eugenic Nation: Faults and Frontiers of Better Breeding in Modern America (American Crossroads)

The God Gene: How Faith Is Hardwired into Our Genes
The God gene hypothesis is based on a combination of behavioral genetic, neurobiological and psychological studies. The major arguments of the theory are: (1) spirituality can be quantified by psychometric measurements; (2) the underlying tendency to spirituality is partially heritable; (3) part of this heritability can be attributed to the gene VMAT2;[1] (4) this gene acts by altering monoamine levels; and (5) spiritual individuals are favored by natural selection because they are provided with an innate sense of optimism, the latter producing positive effects at either a physical and psychological level.


Liquid Medicine

For decades, it's been the gold-standard treatment for the most distressing of mental health disorders: mania, schizophrenia, and major depression.
But now, lithium - the third element of of the periodic table and an essential constituent of soil, oceans, and every living organism - is being heralded by some experts as the next fluoride; an additive with such therapeutic potential, it should be ingested by millions of Americans every time they pour a glass of drinking water.
It's a provocative prospect that research suggests might reduce rates of suicide, violent crime, and hard drug use.
As reported at:
"John Cade accidentally discovered the effect of lithium while injecting it into guinea pigs in his laboratory in Australia. Serendipitously he noticed that the guinea pigs became sedated and even flaccid. As he explained in the 1949 Medical Journal of Australia, "A noteworthy result was that after a latent period of about two hours the animals, although fully conscious, became extremely lethargic and nonresponsive to stimuli for one to two hours before once again becoming normally active and timid."
Notice that the animals became "extremely lethargic and unresponsive to stimuli." Does this sound like the discovery of a treatment specific for "biochemical imbalance" in manic patients? It is, in fact, the now-familiar brain-disabling effect we first saw described in regard to the lobotomizing impact of the neuroleptics. Because this is so disillusioning, the typical textbook of psychiatry makes no mention of the many studies of lithium effects on animals, and the average psychiatrist knows little or nothing about it.
After this unexpected finding in guinea pigs, did Cade then set up a series of scientifically controlled studies in animals? No need for that, when he had ready access to human guinea pigs in the local state mental hospital. He quickly discovered that he could subdue hospital inmates as easily as he did the guinea pigs, making them into more docile inmates. He himself admitted in his pioneering report that the drug produced a nonspecific leveling effect:
An important feature was that, although there was no fundamental improvement in any of them, three who were usually restless, noisy and shouting nonsensical abuse ... lost their excitement and restlessness and became quiet and amenable for the first time in years. (italics added)
So, my response to this proposal to put lithium into the public drinking water in this country? A hearty "hell no!", thank you very much!
While its prescription, carefully monitored by medical professionals, may be of help to a few people, the last thing Americans need right now is to be more unaware of what is going on around them than they already are.

Government ready to openly put drugs in the water to keep you from rebelling.

"Experts" are pushing to add lithium to the entire USA's drinking water supply, as they claim that research indicates this will:- Reduce suicide rates, events of violent crime and hard drug use.

Chlorine, fluoride, and the various other chemical poisons already added to the nation’s drinking water supplies are apparently not enough for the self-appointed experts whose insatiable lust to force-medicate the world is never satisfied. A recent report in The Daily offers credence to the insane notion that adding lithium, a drug currently used to treat mental disorders, to drinking water will be beneficial in helping to reduce suicide and violent crime rates...

Psychiatrist calls for lithium to be added to water

Lithium: Suppressing "Manic-Depressive" Overwhelm and The Dangers of this Toxic Heavy Metal Substance

A Magic Bullet? Or Russian Roulette?
The promotional campaign for lithium began in 1970, the year the FDA approved it for psychiatric uses. The opening salvo was fired by NIMH in a booklet aimed at the media and the general public. Entitled Lithium in the Treatment of Mood Disorders, it called lithium "the first specific chemical treatment for a mental illness" and claimed that "it rarely produces any undesirable effects on emotional and intellectual functioning."

Lithium in Tap Water already being tested in Japan - 1 year ago!


Lithium in Drinking Water in Andean Villages Could Affect Thyroid Function, Research Suggests

Lithium is an element used in batteries and also for medication, as an established and common treatment for bipolar disorder. Swedish researchers have now found that women in four mountain villages in Argentinean Andes Mountains ingest so much lithium via the groundwater that this could affect thyroid function, causing so-called hypothyroidism. This is a metabolic disorder which gives rise to weight gain, fatigue, depression, sensitivity to cold and memory loss.
That the thyroid can be affected and that the kidneys in rare cases can be damaged are known side-effects of medication with lithium. Female patients who become pregnant are also advised against taking medicine containing lithium, as the substance can affect the fetus.


Fluor: le gouv veut modifier la loi pour forcer la fluoration...

Wednesday, September 14, 2011 6:10 AM
Qu'ils le fassent! Qu'ils forcent les villes! Comme disent les anglos: "All hell will break loose"! Ça va faire capoter pas mal de monde! Ça va réveiller ceux qui croient qu'on est libre de choisir. Au point que ça pourrait carrément avoir l'effet inverse de ce que veulent le gouvernement, ça pourrait leur nuire, car si trop de gens sont contre, si tout le Québec (ou du moins les villes les plus importantes) disent non à cette loi et envoient promener le gouvernement, ça va aller mal pour la fluoration...

Fluoration de l'eau
Le gouvernement pourrait forcer la main des municipalités Agence QMI

QUÉBEC - Le gouvernement du Québec s’est donné les coudées franches pour imposer la fluoration de l’eau potable aux municipalités. Malgré la vive opposition, il a obtenu un avis voulant qu’il serait légitimé de leur forcer la main.
L’avis que vient de publier le comité d’éthique de l’Institut national de santé publique risque de raviver les passions entourant la possibilité d’inclure une norme obligatoire de fluorure dans l’eau des villes de plus de 5 000 habitants.
Le comité conclut que les bénéfices de la fluoration sont plus importants que ses potentiels effets négatifs sur la santé et l’environnement et qu’ils justifient l’accroc à la liberté de choix.
«Il y a une légitimité à prioriser le souci de bienfaisance et permettre d’améliorer la santé du plus grand nombre», a expliqué le président du comité, André Lacroix.
Depuis plusieurs années, les autorités de santé publique présentent la fluoration de l’eau comme l’un des moyens les plus sécuritaires et efficaces de réduire la carie dentaire, alors que les enfants québécois ont 40 % plus de caries que ceux de l’Ontario et des États-Unis.
D’un autre côté, les opposants brandissent le spectre de risques accrus de développer des cancers associés, selon eux, à cette pratique.
Pour aller de l’avant, le gouvernement devrait modifier le Règlement sur la qualité de l’eau potable du ministère du Développement durable.
L’attachée de presse du ministre de la Santé Yves Bolduc, Natacha Joncas-Boudreau, a toutefois indiqué mardi qu’il est trop tôt pour spéculer sur les intentions du ministère à ce sujet. [!!]


En tout cas il semble qu'il est pas trop tôt pour écrire un article qui annonce déjà leur intention et nous habitue à l'idée que le gouvernement peut changer la loi s'il le désire. Ils nous habituent progressivement à l'idée qu'ils peuvent faire ça et qu'ils vont le faire de toute façon, qu'on le veuille ou non. Vont-ils vraiment le faire? Juste à nous dire qu'ils peuvent le faire, c'est comme s'ils s'arrangeaient pour que leur prophétie s'autoréalise. On implante une idée et l'idée devient une réalité concrète quand suffisamment de gens y croient...



5 Facts About Fluoride to Give Your Water District

It is imperative that YOU contact your local water district employees and city representatives to let them know the game is up, you will no longer tolerate toxic sodium fluoride being added to the water supply, forcibly medicating the population of your community. When you call, write, email or make presentations, five key points must be made clear:


(NaturalNews) The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) today issued a startling report that admits 2 in 5 children in America show signs of fluoride poisoning (streaking, spotting or pitting of teeth due to dental fluorosis). The agency concluded...


New Study: Fluoride Can Damage the Brain - Avoid Use in Children

NEW YORK, June 21, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "The prolonged ingestion of fluoride may cause significant damage to health and particularly to the nervous system," concludes a review of studies by researchers Valdez-Jimenez, et al. published in Neurologia (June 2011), reports New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF).
The research team reports, "It is important to be aware of this serious problem and avoid the use of toothpaste and items that contain fluoride, particularly in children as they are more susceptible to the toxic effects of fluoride." (1)
"Fluoride can be toxic by ingesting one part per million (ppm), and the effects are not immediate, as they can take 20 years or more to become evident," they write.
Most fluoridating U.S. public drinking water suppliers add fluoride chemicals to deliver 1 ppm fluoride (equal to about 1 milligram per quart) intending to benefit teeth and not to purify the water.
"Fluoridation clearly jeopardizes our children and must be stopped," says attorney Paul Beeber, President, NYSCOF.  "We can actually see how fluoride has damaged children's teeth with dental fluorosis; but we can't see the harm it's doing to their brains and other organs. No U.S. researcher is even looking," says Beeber.
Valdez-Jimenez, et al. describe studies that show fluoride induces changes in the brain's physical structure and biochemistry which affects the neurological  and mental development of individuals including cognitive processes, such as learning and memory.
"Fluoride is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, which may cause biochemical and functional changes in the nervous system during pregnancy, since the fluoride accumulates in brain tissue before birth," they write.*
Animal studies show fluoride's toxic brain effects include classic brain abnormalities found in patients with Alzheimer's disease, Valdez-Jimenez's team reports.
A different research team (Tang et al.) reported in 2008 that "A qualitative review of the studies found a consistent and strong association between the exposure to fluoride and low IQ." (Biological Trace Element Research)  (2)
In 2006, the U.S. National Research Council's (NRC) expert fluoride panel reviewed fluoride toxicology and concluded, "It's apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain." And, "Fluorides also increase the production of free radicals in the brain through several different biological pathways. These changes have a bearing on the possibility that fluorides act to increase the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease." (3)
On April 12, 2010, Time magazine listed fluoride as one of the "Top Ten Common Household Toxins" and described fluoride as both "neurotoxic and potentially tumorigenic if swallowed." (4)
Phyllis Mullenix, Ph.D., was the first U.S. scientist to find evidence that fluoride damages the brain. She published her animal study in a respected peer-reviewed scientific journal in 1995 (5) and then was fired for doing so.(6)
Vyvyan Howard, M.D., Ph.D., a prominent fetal toxicologist and past-President of the International Society of Doctors for the Environment, said that current brain/fluoride research convinces him that we should stop water fluoridation.
Many communities have stopped or rejected fluoridation in the past several years  – the most recent is Fairbanks, Alaska.  This year, seven New York City Council Members co-sponsored legislation to stop fluoridation in NYC.

Fluoride consumption leads to brain damage, says study

It is becoming increasingly difficult for fluoride fanatics to defend the practice of artificial water fluoridation, thanks to a plethora of new reports highlighting its many dangers. A new study published in the journal Neurologia reveals that chronic exposure to, and ingestion of, the synthetic fluoride chemicals added to water supplies can cause serious brain and neurological damage. Confirming several others recently published, the study further exposes the lunacy of deliberately adding toxic chemicals to the water supply in the name of saving teeth


USDA reviews birth control pill safety over clot risk

The US Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday it is reviewing recently published studies which have pointed to an increased blood clot risk associated with a certain type of birth control pill.
The studies involve pills that contain drospirenone, as opposed to another type of progestin known as levonorgestrel. Some brand names include Yaz, Yasmin, Beyaz, Ocella, Loryna, Gianvi, Safyral, Syeda and Zarah.
The bigger question is, why are contraceptive drugs allowed on the market which can be fatal to young women?!?

I cannot believe that, at this point in the 21st century, that the pharmaceutical industry is incapable of making a birth control product which doesn't include these horrendous side effects.

As reported at:
"Along with the minor symptoms it can cause, drospirenone is also responsible for serious side effects in some patients. One of the most serious risks of using drospirenone contraceptives is an increased chance of heart attack, especially in women over the age of 30. This risk more than triples in women who smoke. Stroke is another major risk of taking drospirenone, and studies show that women who utilize the drug are more than twice as likely to have certain types of strokes as those who do not. Drospirenone also has the potential to cause the appearance of benign tumors on the liver."
"Though there has been no conclusive study to prove a precise relationship, the use of drospirenone and oral contraceptives is sometimes linked to the formation of breast, uterine, ovarian and cervical cancers. For this reason, doctors typically avoid prescribing drospirenone for women who are undergoing treatment for cancer or who are cancer survivors."

Drop in U.S. birth rate is the biggest in 30 years

The maternity business has experienced a recession, too, it appears. Births fell 4% from 2007 to 2009, the biggest drop for any two-year period since the mid-1970s, according to federal government data released Thursday.
Historically, birth rates tend to increase during times of social stress, as the instinct to perpetuate the species kicks into overdrive and resources to sublimate the sex drive into other hobbies are unavailable.
So why the dramatic drop?
Here are two possible clues!
Children of the Corn
Hein explained that they had taken antibodies from women with a rare condition known as immune infertility, isolated the genes that regulated the manufacture of those infertility antibodies, and, using genetic engineering techniques, had inserted the genes into ordinary corn seeds used to produce corn plants. In this manner, in reality they produced a concealed contraceptive embedded in corn meant for human consumption. “Essentially, the antibodies are attracted to surface receptors on the sperm,” said Hein. “They latch on and make each sperm so heavy it cannot move forward. It just shakes about as if it was doing the lambada.”15 Hein claimed it was a possible solution to world “over-population.” The moral and ethical issues of feeding it to humans in Third World poor countries without their knowing it he left out of his remarks.
This "sterilizing" corn was developed more than ten years ago!
Scientists have created the ultimate GM crop: contraceptive corn. Waiving fields of maize may one day save the world from overpopulation.
The pregnancy prevention plants are the handiwork of the San Diego biotechnology company Epicyte, where researchers have discovered a rare class of human antibodies that attack sperm.
So, we take this development of GM corn designed to prevent pregnancy, couple it with a rigidly enforced policy in the United States that GM foods are not labeled as such, and then look at the sudden drop on birth rate....
Need I say more?
The record is filled with instances where natural varieties of plants have been contaminated with pollen from GM plants. The "Roundup-Ready" gene has broken into the wild leading to the spontaneous emergence of weeds immune to Glyphosate weed killers. Farmers convinced to buy GM seeds and use Roundup weed killers are now stuck with crops that produce less food, are unable to reproduce themselves, and now have a worse weed problem than before they started. Farmers in India are committing suicide by the thousands as GM seeds purchased on credit fail to produce crops to pay back the loans.
As Fukushima has shown, man is not always in control of his dangerous technologies, and genetic engineering is the most dangerous technology yet tinkered with.
If that gene that makes the corn produce anti-sperm antibodies escapes into the wild, as the Roundup Ready gene did, then humankind's doom is sealed.

Près de 300 000 agriculteurs bio attaquent le géant de l’agro-business Monsanto, qui a ces dernières années, écrasé les agriculteurs bio indépendants de la côte Ouest à la côte Est des Etats-Unis. 270 000 d’entr’eux ont déposé plainte le 30 Mars dans une tentative de maintenir bio une certaine portion des récoltes mondiales. Les plaignants dans cette affaire sont des membres d’environ 60 associations agricoles représentant des fermes familiales, des grainetiers et des associations agricoles bio.
Menée par l’association des grainetiers bio, la procédure s’en prend à Monsanto afin que l’entreprise maintienne ses créations de graines de colza Genuity® et Roundup Ready® en dehors de leurs fermes.. Les agriculteurs bio disent que leur maïs, coton, betteraves à sucre et autres cultures, ont été contaminées par les graines Monsanto et même si la contamination a été largement d’origine naturelle et non intentionelle, Monsanto quant à eux ont attaqué en justice des centaines de fermiers pour avoir déroger à leurs conditions de patentes en ayant même incidemment utilisé leur produit.
Non seulement les agriculteurs bio essaient de garder leurs culturees… bio, mais dorénavant beaucoup d’entr’eux sont obligés de jeter l’éponge alors que Monsanto continue malheureusement une guerre contre la compétition en attaquant en justice les fermiers qui cultivent bio. Ces dernières années, Monsanto a acquit plus de 20 des plus importants grainetiers de détails et de vente en gros du pays et The Street rapporte qu’ils ont instauré une politique avec laquelle leurs client sont obligés d’utiliser les graines génétiquement modifiées, de les acheter tous les ans; à défaut les fauteurs sont mis sur une lise noire à tout jamais. La Commission de la Sécurité en Bourse (NdT: la SEC) a lancé une enquête au sujet du “programme clientèle de motivation” de Monsanto l’an dernier et le département de la justice a indiqué la possibilité d’une violation de la loi anti-trust en regard de la mise en liste noire de clients depuis 2009.
Alors que Monsanto achète sa compétition et attaque en justice ceux qui résistent, ses profits ont augmenté l’an dernier de 77% à 680 millions de dollars.

Unfortunately, some GMO seeds made it to the farmers without them knowing it...

Nations finally agree on GM food labelling

Post Media News

OTTAWA — The countries of the world ended two decades of bickering Tuesday when they agreed to guidelines for genetically modified food labelling.

The United Nations summit of food safety regulators from more than 100 countries, including Health Canada, produced the first-ever consensus document when the United States dropped its long-standing objection to the labelling guidance document at the Geneva summit after debating the issue for 20 years.

Canada had objected to GM labelling guidelines until last year, when the international group met in Quebec City.

The new Codex agreement to which Canada signed on now means that any country that wants to bring in mandatory GM food labelling rules will no longer face the threat of a legal challenge from the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Genetically modified foods have become so ubiquitous in the US that even the grocery store 'Whole Foods' now admits it cannot keep biotech foods off its shelves. A representative for the corporation acknowledged in May of 2011 that the realities of the marketplace have forced a shift in the company's previous no-GMO's policy.

Nouvelle étude sur une possible toxicité des OGM pour les animaux

ven., 08 juil. 2011 13:16 CDT
CAEN - Une étude portant sur 19 OGM autorisés à l'importation pour l'alimentation en Europe relève des signes de toxicité sur les foies et les reins des animaux qui en ont consommé, ont affirmé vendredi ses auteurs.

Les scientifiques ont travaillé à partir de données fournies par les entreprises qui produisent ces 19 organismes génétiquement modifiés. Mais ils les ont compilées de façon plus poussée que les industriels, a expliqué Gilles-Eric Séralini, professeur à l'université de Caen et président du Conseil Scientifique du Comité de recherche et d'information indépendantes sur le génie génétique (CRIIGEN).

Ces 19 OGM représentent plus de 80% de tous les OGM cultivés à travers le monde, précise le CRIIGEN dans un communiqué.

Les tests ne prouvent pas une toxicité chronique des OGM puisqu'ils se limitent à une durée trop courte, choisie par les industriels, de 90 jours, mais les résultats observés dans les reins et les foies pourraient signifier l'apparition de maladies chroniques, selon le communiqué.

Pour ces chercheurs il faut donc que des études prolongées et plus détaillées soient menées.

L'étude a été publiée dans la revue internationale Environmental Sciences Europe (

Gilles-Eric Séralini a déjà publié une étude similaire en 2009 mais elle ne portait que sur trois OGM. A la suite de cette publication dans l'International Journal of Biological Sciences, le Haut Conseil des biotechnologies (HCB) avait estimé qu'elle n'apportait pas d'élément susceptible d'imputer une quelconque toxicité.

Le HCB a été créé en 2008 pour éclairer le gouvernement sur toute question intéressant les OGM ou toute autre biotechnologie.

Le HCB ne publie pas dans des revues scientifiques internationales, et n'a pas travaillé sur la compilation des effets de tous les OGM, argumente M. Séralini.

En janvier, le chercheur Marc Fellous (qui a présidé la commission du génie biomoléculaire (CGB), ancêtre du HCB), a été condamné à Paris pour avoir diffamé M. Séralini en affirmant que ses recherches étaient financées par Greenpeace. M. Séralini a en outre depuis lors porté plainte pour faux et usage de faux.

La culture d'OGM est interdite en Europe sauf le maïs Mon 810, qui fait toutefois l'objet d'un moratoire en France. Mais l'importation d'OGM ne l'est pas.


Ethical rules needed to curb 'Frankenstein-like experiments' on animals
July 22, 2011, The Telegraph (One of the UK's leading newspapers)
Scientists are in danger of turning animals into monsters unless an ethical watchdog is appointed to prevent Frankenstein-like experiments, the Academy of Medical Sciences has warned. A new report into experiments which transplant human cells into animals for medical purposes said scientists may not be far from giving apes the ability to think and talk like humans. Concerns about the creation of talking apes should be taken seriously along with "what one might call the 'Frankenstein fear' that the medical research which creates 'humanised' animals is going to generate monsters", it was claimed. A regulatory body is needed to closely monitor any experiments that risk creating animals with human-like consciousness, spawning hybrid human-animal embryos, or giving animals any appearance or behavioural traits that too closely resemble humans, the report said. Scientists would, for example, be prevented from replacing a large number of an ape's brain [cells] with human cells – as has already been done in simpler animals like mice – until much more is known about the potential results.

Dog's glow-in-the-dark effect can be turned on or off
July 27, 2011, MSNBC
Scientists say they have bred a dog that glows under ultraviolet light when an antibiotic is added to its food. Scientists started cloning glow-in-the-dark puppies two years ago by inserting genes from other species that produce fluorescent proteins, such as jellyfish and coral. In the journal Genesis, researchers from Seoul National University report that they produced a dog that expresses the green fluorescent protein gene when it eats food containing a doxycycline antibiotic. When the drug is no longer added to the food, the glow-in-the-dark effect fades away. The technique could be used to help find cures for human diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported. The genetically modified female beagle, named Tegon, was born in 2009. Other methods can produce dogs that glow, but "the uncontrollable expression often results in unwanted outcomes," they said.
Note: Though this may have some beneficial applications, why doesn't the article raise any of the serious ethical considerations?

Study: GMO Food Causes Organ Disruption In Animals

It seem as if those who are vehemently opposed to genetically modified (GM) food aren’t crazy after all.

According to Natural News, the paper - which is based on 19 separate studies - concludes the disruptions occur primarily in the liver and kidney.

Alarm on Gene GM Crops: A Previously Unrecognised Effect on GM Plant Development

Indian scientists have discovered that the genetic modification of plants with a gene already used in crops worldwide may severely damage the plants, a surprising finding that may stir a debate on current crop biotechnology science.
The scientists at the University of Delhi have shown that inserting a bacterial gene that makes a protein named Cry1Ac into genomes of plants appears to cause developmental defects, growth retardation and sterility in the plants.
Several experimental and commercial genetically-modified plants, including GM cotton cultivated in India and other countries, make the Cry1Ac protein which is toxic to some insects. The insects die when they try to eat parts of these GM crops.

Children of the Corn: GMOs Don’t Qualify As Food

One long-standing project of the US Government has been to perfect a genetically-modified variety of corn, the diet staple in Mexico and many other Latin American countries. The corn has been field tested in tests financed by the US Department of Agriculture along with a small California bio-tech company named Epicyte. Announcing his success at a 2001 press conference, the president of Epicyte, Mitch Hein, pointing to his GMO corn plants, announced, “We have a hothouse filled with corn plants that make anti-sperm antibodies.”
Hein explained that they had taken antibodies from women with a rare condition known as immune infertility, isolated the genes that regulated the manufacture of those infertility antibodies, and, using genetic engineering techniques, had inserted the genes into ordinary corn seeds used to produce corn plants.

Please, know where your food comes from, to the best of your ability.
I understand it is more expensive, but you may be better off buying food from a health food store with an excellent reputation for never carrying GMO foods.
But even that might not keep you safe. Under US law, GM crops do not have to be labeled as such, so even health food stores cannot be certain. The record is filled with instances where natural varieties of plants have been contaminated with pollen from GM plants. The "Roundup-Ready" gene has broken into the wild leading to the spontaneous emergence of weeds immune to Glyphosate weed killers.

In the Grip of Mad Scientists: Business as Usual for Monsanto and Military

"In the Grip of Mad Scientists" is a review of Monsanto's history of alliance with the military to carry out secret experiments on US citizens.
In what should amount to a wildly imaginative narrative created by an overzealous science fiction aficionado, the following agencies, their connections, and past actions are real, none-the-less.
Imagine, if you will, a world in which health sciences, disease control, cancer research, bio-weapons research, vaccine development, biotechnology, food and agriculture, national defense, and chemical companies all work together under the military. Then imagine, if you will, that a certain chemical company under the guise of a life sciences operation, produces an herbicide/defoliant for military use so destructive and highly toxic that contact with it causes cancer, diabetes and birth defects. And then that same chemical/life sciences company partners with a funding corporation whose team members include the ex-partner of the inventor of the world’s first completely synthetic organism, which was recently unleashed in the ocean and has since turned its ever-hungry sites on human flesh. Then imagine that same company with a monopoly on our food supply…
Sound like an episode out of the Twilight Zone or Dr. Who? Well, it’s not. It’s real, and it’s documented. 


Michigan sterilized more than 3,000 people from early 1900s to 1970s

Michigan was among the 35 states that allowed sterilization of people considered unfit to reproduce.
Most Americans are unaware that Hitler's ideas on race hygiene in the 1940s were inspired by the American Eugenics Movement of the 1930s. In 1932, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, wrote in "A Plan For Peace" that her aims were, "To give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation [concentration camps] or sterilization". Between 2000-4000 forced sterilizations per year were taking place in the United States. The following year, when Ernst Rudin established the Nazi system for forced sterilization of those it deemed unfit to reproduce, Rassenhygiene (Race hygiene), he chose as his inspiration and model the writings of William H. Tucker, associate professor of psychology at Rutgers University, Camden, New Jersey, USA. When Rudin's forced sterilization of Jews by irradiation with X-rays was revealed, Margaret Sanger refused to denounce him. During the Nuremberg trials for forced sterilization the Nazis defend themselves by citing US law as the legal precedent. In 1934, Leon Whitley, of the American Eugenics Society, received a request for a copy of his book,"The Case for Sterilization". He sent it, and soon after received a personal letter of thanks from Adolph Hitler. In his letter of thanks for American writer Madison Grant, Hitler declared Grant's book, "The Great Race" to be his "bible".


NC works on compensation for sterilization victims

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — About 1,500 people in North Carolina who were forced to undergo sterilizations decades ago should get compensation from the state, a task force said Monday, though the panel was unsure of exactly how much money to recommend.
Victims blasted report, saying the state has procrastinated too long on a decision.


When Peru Practiced Mass Sterilization With IMF Blessings

Original Source in French: Le Monde
The French media have said little in favor of the victory by leftist-nationalist candidate Ollanta Humala over Keiko Fujimori, daughter of former President Alberto Fujimori, in Sunday’s Peruvian presidential elections. The elections revived a scandal about a forced-sterilization program led by Alberto Fujimori from 1995 to 2000 with blessings from the IMF, financial support from NGOs including the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA), and few questions about the approaches used.


Scientist: GM food safety testing is “woefully inadequate”

According to Judy Carman, Ph.D., very little safety testing is done on genetically modified foods, and when it is done, biotechnology companies conduct minimal testing.
Dr. Carmen says that more extensive independent testing of GM foods is needed to ensure they are safe. Her recommendations seem prophetic in light of a recent Austrian government study that found reduced fertility in mice fed GM corn.
Dr. Carman is director of the Institute of Health and Environmental Research, Inc., a non-profit research institute based in Australia focusing on the safety of genetically modified food. She earned a doctorate degree in medicine from the University of Adelaide in the areas of metabolic regulation, nutritional biochemistry, and cancer. She has investigated outbreaks of disease for an Australian state government.


Dangerous new plant disease linked to genetically engineered crops and pesticides

Source: abc.net.au
US scientists claim to have discovered a dangerous new plant disease linked to genetically modified crops and the pesticides used on them.
The research, which is yet to be completed, suggests the pathogen could be the cause of recent widespread crop failure and miscarriages in livestock.
Emeritus Professor Don Huber from Perdue University says his research shows that animals fed on GM corn or soybeans may suffer serious health problems due the pathogen.
“They’re finding anywhere from 20 per cent to as much as 55 per cent of those [animals] will miscarriage or spontaneously abort,” he said.
“It will kill a chicken embryo for instance in 24-48 hours.”
Professor Huber says it isn’t clear yet whether it is the GM crops or the use of the pesticide glyphosate that causes the pathogen. But he says his research shows both the pesticide and the GM crops also reduce the ability of plants to absorb nutrients from the soil that are necessary for animal health.
“If you have the [GM] gene present there is a reduced efficiency for the plant to use those nutrients.
“When you put the glyphosate out then you have an additional factor to reduce the nutrient availability to the crop,” he said.

Most Americans remain blissfully unaware (or don’t care) they are eating genetically-modified (GM) organisms every day. Passivity and blind faith in the USDA, FDA and EPA have largely contributed to this attitude. Perhaps that will change now that a new study reveals an insecticide produced in GM corn actually gets absorbed into the human body. 
If you haven’t been paying attention to your food lately, biotechnology giants such as Monsanto thank you for that. Because behind your back, they’ve succeeded in replacing 86% of US corn with their patented insecticide-producing “frankencorn”.
The industry name for this is “Bt corn” and the insecticide is actually produced inside the plant, so it is impossible to wash it off. This is accomplished by inserting genes from the bacteria Bacillus Thuringiensis into the corn.
Up until now, scientists and multinational corporations such as Monsanto and DuPont have spent billions in lobbying, campaign donations and “testing” in an attempt to convince world governments that GMOs are safe. In the case of Bt corn, they stated the insecticide produced within the corn posed no danger to human health because it was broken down in the digestive system.
Despite corporate assurances, many have been skeptical. Non-GMO advocates such as Jeffrey Smith from The Institute For Responsible Technology and the Organic Consumers Association have long been concerned about the potential impact this Bt toxin could have on human health.
Scientists from the University of Sherbrooke, Canada, proved the validity of these concerns when they detected the insecticidal protein, Cry1Ab, circulating in the blood of both pregnant and non-pregnant women. They also detected the toxin in fetal blood, suggesting that the toxin can be passed on to the fetus. The research paper has been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication in the journal Reproductive Toxicology.
Neither the women studied or their spouses worked in agriculture. All reported to be consuming a typical Canadian diet that is virtually identical to the American diet.
Are you pissed? You should be. We’ve let corporate interests turn us into poison-fed lab rats. It doesn’t end at corn either. 93% of both soy and canola are also genetically-modified. On top of that, Monsanto has acres of laboratories containing new mutant species awaiting to slip into your pantry. You’re probably wearing some of their Bt cotton right now. It comprises 93% of US cotton and 68% of Chinese cotton.
Perhaps you’ve heard of the uproar around Bt brinjal, a GM variety of eggplant, in India. When it was approved in 2009, a country-wide protest began and the Indian government applied a moratorium on its release.


GMO created foods may be used as a biological weapon

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) which are used to create new food seeds and crops, are being tied to use as a potential biological weapon in creating infertility in places around the world.
A report published on May 28th tied together that the international organization Codex, which is seeking to regulate every food, mineral, and herb in the world used for consumption, does not consider GMO created products as food, and thus they are being placed in a separate sphere of attributes that can be used for alternative functions.
Including birth control and creating infertility in a nation or population.

Genetic Modification Gone Wild: 10 Signs That Our World May Be Destined To Resemble A Really Bad Science Fiction Movie

Did you know that today scientists are actually producing mice that tweet like birds, cats that glow in the dark, "monster salmon", "spider goats", cow/human hybrids, pig/human hybrids and even mouse/human hybrids? The very definition of life on earth is changing right before our eyes. Many scientists believe that genetic modification holds the key to feeding the entire planet and healing all of our diseases, but others are warning that genetic modification could literally transform our environment into a desolate wasteland and cause our world to resemble a really bad science fiction movie.
Sadly, most people have no idea what is going on out there.  Most people believe that scientists only have our best interests at heart and that they would never do anything "weird" or "dangerous".
Well, read the following examples of genetic modification below and decide for yourself whether or not things have gotten out of control.
The following are 10 signs that our world may be destined to resemble a really bad science fiction movie....
#1 In China, scientists have inserted human genes into the DNA of dairy cow embryos.  At this point, approximately 200 hybrid cows have been successfully produced.  These cows can produce milk that is virtually identical to human breast milk.  The scientists hope to have huge herds of these cows producing an alternative to human breast milk soon, and they hope to have this "milk" sold in global supermarkets within 3 years.
#2 In Canada, scientists at the University of Guelph in the province of Ontario have produced what they are calling "enviropigs".  These "enviropigs" have had genes from mice spliced into them, and according to the scientists they produce less phosphorous in their poop so they are being touted as environmentally friendly.  Authorities in both the U.S. and Canada are evaluating whether or not to allow these "enviropigs" into the food supply.
#3 Scientists in Japan have created a genetically modified mouse that tweets like a bird.
#4 One U.S. corporation can now produce a very muscular "monster salmon" which can grow up to three times as fast as normal salmon do.
#5 Science can now produce cats that glow in the dark.  A genetically modified cat created by scientists named Mr. Green Genes was the very first fluorescent cat in the United States.  But Mr. Green Genes was not the first "glow in the dark cat" in the world.  That honor went to a cat created by a team of scientists in South Korea.
#6 In Japan, scientists have discovered that they can grow rat organs inside of mice.  The researchers hope to use the same technology to grow human organs inside of pigs.
#7 But Japan is not the only one doing this kind of research.  In Missouri, entities that are part pig and part human are being grown with the goal of providing organs for human transplants.
#8 Scientists at Rockefeller University have injected human genes into mice.  These "humanized mice" are being used to study the spread of the hepatitis C virus.
#9 U.S. scientists have discovered that they can actually "grow" new human organs from scratch.  The following is a quote from a recent Newsweek article....
It might sound like science fiction, but growing new organs from scratch has already become reality. In addition to bladders, scientists have engineered new skin, bone, cartilage, corneas, windpipes, arteries, and urethras.
#10 Believe it or not, a company in Canada known as Nexia has actually taken goats and has genetically modified them to be part spider. The genetic modification process causes these "spider goats" to produce spider silk protein in their milk.  This spider silk protein is collected, purified and spun into incredibly strong fibers. These fibers are apparently more durable than Kevlar, more flexible than nylon, and much stronger than steel.
As frightening as all of those examples may sound, the truth is that the genetic modification of plants has gone even farther than the genetic modification of animals has gone.
Today, approximately 93 percent of all soybeans and approximately 80 percent of all corn in the United States have been genetically modified.
Considering the fact that corn is literally in thousands upon thousands of our food products, there is a really good chance that you consumed some genetically modified food today.
Are you certain that it was safe?
Genetically modified crops have been linked to organ disruption in at least 19 different studies.
In addition, there is also an increasing body of evidence that suggests that genetically modified food actually alters our digestive systems.
Do we really know everything that we need to know about genetically modified food?
Perhaps we should have investigated all of this sooner.  The truth is that once genetically modified crops get out into the wild it is just about impossible to put the genie back into the bottle.
A while back, a genetically modified strain of maize that was banned in the EU was accidentally sown all across Germany.
But once it got out there was no way of totally eliminating it.  In fact, in many areas of the world genetically modified crop strains are breeding natural crop strains out of existence.
We are permanently changing the natural order of things.
Is that really a great idea?
Sadly, things are only going to become much more bizarre in future years.
DARPA's current budget actually includes money that is allocated for the development of this kind of technology.  Apparently the goal is to someday produce "super soldiers" with "edited DNA" and implantable microchips.
In this article I have only talked about the stuff that we know about and that is admitted in the mainstream media.
So what is going on out there that we don't know about and that the mainstream media is not admitting?
In past decades, genetic engineering was extremely expensive and it was only done by top scientists.
Today, even college students are transplanting genes and creating new lifeforms.  There seems to no longer be any taboo on monkeying around with the fabric of life.  The field of "synthetic biology" is extremely hot right now and very small companies are "creating" new plants, new animals and even new microorganisms in garages and basements all over the globe.
So what will the future bring?
Will genetic modification enable us to feed the entire world and will it enable us to heal all of the horrible diseases which afflict us?
Or will genetic modification result in a nightmarish world where "man-made life" and twisted human-animal hybrid creatures are free to roam and breed?
Will our bizarre experimentation destroy the environment and turn this planet into a bizarre wasteland?
Only time will tell.


Food from the Gulf contaminated with oil? Food from the Pacific radioactive? Farms wrecked by flooding, toxic waste and GM seeds? No problem! Have we got a new source of food for you!!!!!!!!

It's being called the "poop burger". Japanese scientists have found a way to create artificial meat from sewage containing human feces.
Somehow this feels like a Vonnegut plotline: population boom equals food shortage. Solution? Synthesize food from human waste matter. Absurd yes, but Japanese scientists have actually discovered a way to create edible steaks from human feces.
Mitsuyuki Ikeda, a researcher from the Okayama Laboratory, has developed steaks based on proteins from human excrement. Tokyo Sewage approached the scientist because of an overabundance of sewage mud. They asked him to explore the possible uses of the sewage and Ikeda found that the mud contained a great deal of protein because of all the bacteria.
The researchers then extracted those proteins, combined them with a reaction enhancer and put it in an exploder which created the artificial steak. The “meat” is 63% proteins, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids and 9% minerals. The researchers color the poop meat red with food coloring and enhance the flavor with soy protein. Initial tests have people saying it even tastes like beef.

And just WAIT until you see what they want to feed you now!


Evolution machine: Genetic engineering on fast forward

The first "evolution machine" was built by Harris Wang, a graduate student in Church's lab. To prove it worked, he started with a strain of the E. coli bacterium that produced small quantities of lycopene, the pigment that makes tomatoes red. The strain was also modified to produce some viral enzymes. Next, he synthesised 50,000 DNA strands with sequences that almost matched parts of the 24 genes involved in lycopene production, but with a range of variations that he hoped would affect the amount of lycopene produced. The DNA and the bacteria were then put into the evolution machine.
This "shake and bake" approach to creating new organisms scares the crap out of me! We still do not fully understand the full implications of designed organisms, and these guys want to create new life using a turbo-charged roulette wheel?


Who Owns Your Genes? The Case Continues…

Today, a divided appellate court upheld patents on two human genes associated with hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. The ruling partially reverses a landmark decision by a federal district court in March 2010 that concluded that human genes cannot be patented. The appellate court did affirm the district court’s invalidation of several claims on methods for comparing two genetic sequences.

The decision today allows companies like Myriad Genetics, which controls the patents on the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, to exclude others from testing and conducting research on patented genes. Patients who want to obtain genetic testing to determine whether they are at risk for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer have only one option for full genetic sequencing: Myriad Genetics. Myriad decides what tests are offered, which mutations are included, at what cost, and what research can be conducted without fear of patent infringement liability.

The Supreme Court, the court that would hear any appeal, has long held that products of nature are not patentable subject matter. A gene, even once removed from the cell, remains a product of nature. The patentholder did not “invent” the genetic information it embodies, and we will continue to fight for that principle.


Bolivian President Fights GMOs

Bolivian President Evo Morales signed a groundbreaking law in June which would effectively increase the nation’s food security for generations to come. A large component of the plan is the establishment of state-owned companies to produce seeds and fertilizers.
The creation of a a state seed bank for native plants, which would preserve the rich biodiversity of region is also planned. This is an exciting prospect for Bolivia, not only because it is a blow for sustainability and heritage breeds in the face of current food engineering trends, but because Bolivia has some of the greatest remaining biodiversity on the planet.


Selon l'association Inf'OGM, le Parlement péruvien aurait voté le 7 juin un moratoire de dix ans ''pour empêcher l'entrée sur le territoire national d'organismes vivants modifiés (OVM) à des fins de culture, d'élevage ou d'autres objectifs''.
Le 28 avril 2011, la ville de Lima s'était même déclarée « zone sans OGM » au nom du principe de précaution, rejoignant d'autres régions du pays : Cusco, Lambayeque, Huanuco, Ayacucho, San Martin et Cajamarca. Le 13 mai dernier, le ministre de l'Agriculture, Rafael Quevedo, ''favorable à l'introduction des OGM au Pérou avait démissionné'', suite à une affaire de conflits d'intérêts, d'après Inf'OGM.

Adoption of Genetically Engineered Crops in the U.S.




U.S. farmers have adopted genetically engineered (GE) crops widely since their introduction in 1996, notwithstanding uncertainty about consumer acceptance and economic and environmental impacts. Soybeans and cotton genetically engineered with herbicide-tolerant traits have been the most widely and rapidly adopted GE crops in the U.S., followed by insect-resistant cotton and corn. This data product summarizes the extent of adoption of herbicide-tolerant and insect–resistant crops since their introduction in 1996. Three tables devoted to corn, cotton, and soybeans cover the 2000-10 period by State. See more on the extent of adoption...
Adoption of GE crops has grown steadilty in the United States since their introduction in 1996.


The following tables provide the data obtained by USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) in the June Agricultural Survey annually for 2000 through 2010. Randomly selected farmers across the United States were asked if they planted corn, soybeans, or upland cotton seed that, through biotechnology, is resistant to herbicides, insects, or both. Conventionally bred herbicide-tolerant varieties were excluded. "Stacked" gene varieties are those containing GE traits for both herbicide tolerance (HT) and insect resistance (Bt).
According to NASS, the States published in these tables represent 81-86 percent of all corn planted acres, 87-90 percent of all soybean planted acres, and 81-93 percent of all upland cotton planted acres (depending on the year). See more on the extent of adoption.
The acreage estimates are subject to sampling variability because all operations planting GE varieties are not included in the sample. The variability for the 48 corn States, calculated by NASS using the relative standard error at the U.S. level, is 0.4-1.8 percent for all GE varieties (depending on the year), 1.6-2.5 percent for insect-resistant (Bt)-only varieties, 1.6-3.8 percent for herbicide-tolerant-only varieties, and 1.0-10.8 percent for stacked gene varieties. Variability for the 31 soybean States is 0.3-0.8 percent for herbicide-tolerant varieties, depending on the year. Variability for the 17 upland cotton States is 0.8-2.2 percent for all GE varieties, 4.6-6.6 percent for insect-resistant (Bt)-only varieties, 2.6-6.6 percent for herbicide-tolerant-only varieties, and 2.1-4.2 percent for stacked gene varieties.


These tables will be updated with 2011 GE adoption figures in July 2011 once the survey data become available at the end of June 2011.

WASHINGTON - Selon un nouveau rapport publié mardi, les autorités de réglementation de l'industrie savaient depuis des années que le Roundup, l'herbicide le plus vendu dans monde, produit par la compagnie Monsanto, provoque des anomalies congénitales.

Le rapport, « Roundup and birth defects: Is the public being kept in the dark? » (Roundup et anomalies congénitales : Le public est-il gardé dans l'ignorance ?) découvre que les autorités de réglementation savaient déjà en 1980 que le glyphosate, le produit chimique de base du Roundup, a le pouvoir de créer des anomalies congénitales chez les animaux de laboratoire.

Mais, en dépit de ces alertes, et bien que la Commission européenne savait que le glyphosate provoque des anomalies depuis au moins 2002, cette information n'a pas été rendue publique.


Report Finds Regulators Knew Monsanto's Roundup Caused Birth Defects

Huffington Post

WASHINGTON -- Industry regulators have known for years that Roundup, the world's best-selling herbicide produced by U.S. company Monsanto, causes birth defects, according to a new report released Tuesday.
The report, "Roundup and birth defects: Is the public being kept in the dark?" found regulators knew as long ago as 1980 that glyphosate, the chemical on which Roundup is based, can cause birth defects in laboratory animals.

But despite such warnings, and although the European Commission has known that glyphosate causes malformations since at least 2002, the information was not made public.

Instead regulators misled the public about glyphosate's safety, according to the report, and as recently as last year, the German Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety, the German government body dealing with the glyphosate review, told the European Commission that there was no evidence glyphosate causes birth defects.

Roundup: Birth Defects Caused By World's Top-Selling Weedkiller, Scientists Say

Farmers and others in Argentina used the weedkiller primarily on genetically modified Roundup Ready soy, which covers nearly 50 million acres, or half of the country's cultivated land area. In 2009 farmers sprayed that acreage with an estimated 200 million liters of glyphosate.
The Argentine government helped pull the country out of a recession in the 1990s in part by promoting genetically modified soy. Though it was something of a miracle for poor farmers, several years after the first big harvests residents near where the soy cop grew began reporting health problems, including high rates of birth defects and cancers, as well as the losses of crops and livestock as the herbicide spray drifted across the countryside.
One has to wonder just how much horrendous damage this chemical has already done to people and the enviornment before someone started paying attention to what has happened here.

Monsanto's Agent Orange Being Used to Clear Amazon Forest

Agent Orange is one of the most devastating weapons of modern warfare, a chemical which killed or injured an estimated 400,000 people during the Vietnam War -- and now it's being used against the Amazon rainforest. According to officials, ranchers in Brazil have begun spraying the highly toxic herbicide over patches of forest as a covert method to illegally clear foliage, more difficult to detect that chainsaws and tractors. In recent weeks, an aerial survey detected some 440 acres of rainforest that had been sprayed with the compound -- poisoning thousands of trees and an untold number of animals, potentially for generations...

Pesticide-laden produce: Apples and celery top the list


They may be red and shiny, but apples are the most pesticide-laden fruit, according to the "2011 Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce" released Monday by the Washington-based Environmental Working Group. Of 700 apple samples tested by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 98% contained pesticides, moving the fruit to the top of the group’s “dirty dozen” list, it said.
The guide was the seventh annual report by the nonprofit organization, which compares pesticide loads on 53 fruits and vegetables. It lists the 12 fruits and vegetables with the highest levels, and also publishes a “clean 15” list of the least affected produce.
After apples, the fruits and vegetables with the most pesticides were celery, strawberries, peaches, spinach, imported nectarines, imported grapes,  sweet bell peppers, potatoes, domestic blueberries, lettuce and kale/collard greens.
Fruits and vegetables with the lowest pesticide levels include onions, sweet corn, pineapples, avocados and asparagus.
"A growing body of scientific evidence shows that pesticide consumption can cause lasting harm to children's brain development," wrote the group, which included USC pediatrician Harvey Karp, Stanford University pediatrician  Aida Greene and Philip J. Landrigan, dean for global health at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
“Three recently published studies have all shown that early life exposure of children to pesticides can cause persistent problems in learning, memory and behavior. One of these studies, led by Brenda Eskenazi of the University of California, Berkeley, found that children born to mothers with the most intense exposures to pesticides demonstrate IQ deficits of up to seven points.”

Food Freedom has deliberately refrained from posting any suggestion that Germany’s superbug is related to biowarfare, until further evidence emerged. Various sources now corroborate this story, including The Atlantic:
“On Tuesday [May 31], the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung reported that [leading German E. coli researcher Helge] Karch had discovered that the O104:H4 bacteria responsible for the current outbreak is a so-called chimera that contains genetic materia from various E. coli bacteria. It also contains DNA sequences from plague bacteria, which makes it particularly pathogenic.”
Though he emphasized “There is no risk, however, that it could cause a form of plague,” Karch added that plague DNA sequences make the superbug “particularly pathogenic.”

Also, it is interesting timing to note that the European Union banned herbal remedies on May 1, 2011. Below is Dr Rima Laibow’s summary of this developing story. ~ Ed.

Health Official Says E. Coli Strain Was Previously Unknown

In Geneva, Gregory Hartl, a spokesman for the World Health Organization, said: “What we understand is this is a strain which has never been detected in an outbreak situation before.” He said scientists at “many laboratories” were working to gather more information about the strain. The origins of the outbreak, which has killed at least 17 people — 16 in Germany and a Swede who visited there recently — remains unknown.

Bactérie E. coli: plus d'aliments pourraient être irradiés au Canada

De Pat Hewitt, La Presse Canadienne – Il y a 3 jours
TORONTO — L'idée d'irradier davantage d'aliments au Canada a été émise, jeudi, par des représentants fédéraux du secteur de l'agriculture réunis pendant deux jours à Ottawa pour discuter de sécurité alimentaire, alors que l'éclosion de la bactérie E. coli en Europe a déjà fait plusieurs morts.
L'Association des consommateurs du Canada ont lancé le débat sur cette question lors d'une rencontre à laquelle assistait le ministre fédéral de l'Agriculture, Gerry Ritz, et des représentants de l'Agence canadienne d'inspection des aliments.
La question de l'irradiation et de certains problèmes qui ont mené à la crise en Allemagne ont été abordés, a rapporté le président de l'association, Bruce Cran.
L'éclosion de la bactérie Escherichia coli entérohémorragique (ECEH), en Europe, a tué au moins 29 personnes et en a infecté plus de 2900 jusqu'à présent. Les autorités allemandes conseillent toujours aux consommateurs de ne pas manger de concombres, tomates, laitue et pousses même si elles n'ont toujours pas trouvé la cause de la crise. Les fermiers européens ont perdu environ 611 millions $ US, alors que les consommateurs boudent leurs produits.
Des gens sont tombés malades dans une dizaine de pays européens, au Canada et aux États-Unis.
M. Cran a de son côté déclaré qu'il était satisfait que l'idée d'irradier davantage d'aliments soit considérée et ce, même si on ne rapporte aucun aliment contaminé par la bactérie au Canada.
L'irradiation, qui est utilisée à divers degrés dans 40 pays, expose brièvement la nourriture à des rayons gamma ou des faisceaux d'électrons et tue l'E. coli et la salmonelle dans les aliments.
Le Canada autorise l'irradiation des oignons, des pommes de terre et de la farine, notamment.
Santé Canada avait voulu allonger la liste des aliments irradiés, en 2002, mais avait dû faire marche arrière en raison du peu de demandes en ce sens et de l'impopularité de la méthode auprès de la population.
Le boeuf et la volaille peuvent être irradiés aux États-Unis et la U.S. Food and Drug Administration a approuvé la procédure pour les épinards crus et la laitue, il y a trois ans, affirmant que cela tuait efficacement les germes.

Vaccines and autism: a new scientific review

The article in the Journal of Immunotoxicology is entitled "Theoretical aspects of autism: Causes--A review." The author is Helen Ratajczak, surprisingly herself a former senior scientist at a pharmaceutical firm. Ratajczak did what nobody else apparently has bothered to do: she reviewed the body of published science since autism was first described in 1943. Not just one theory suggested by research such as the role of MMR shots, or the mercury preservative thimerosal; but all of them.
Ratajczak's article states, in part, that "Documented causes of autism include genetic mutations and/or deletions, viral infections, and encephalitis [brain damage] following vaccination [emphasis added]. Therefore, autism is the result of genetic defects and/or inflammation of the brain."

Vaccines and autism: a new scientific review
March 31, 2011, CBS News
For all those who've declared the autism-vaccine debate over - a new scientific review begs to differ. It considers a host of peer-reviewed, published theories that show possible connections between vaccines and autism. The article in the Journal of Immunotoxicology is entitled "Theoretical aspects of autism: Causes--A review." The author is Helen Ratajczak, surprisingly herself a former senior scientist at a pharmaceutical firm. Ratajczak did what nobody else apparently has bothered to do: she reviewed the body of published science since autism was first described in 1943. Not just one theory suggested by research such as the role of MMR shots, or the mercury preservative thimerosal; but all of them. Ratajczak's article states, in part, that "Documented causes of autism include genetic mutations and/or deletions, viral infections, and encephalitis following vaccination. Therefore, autism is the result of genetic defects and/or inflammation of the brain." The article goes on to discuss many potential vaccine-related culprits, including the increasing number of vaccines given in a short period of time. Ratajczak also looks at a factor that hasn't been widely discussed: human DNA contained in vaccines. Ratajczak reports that about the same time vaccine makers took most thimerosal out of most vaccines (with the exception of flu shots which still widely contain thimerosal), they began making some vaccines using human tissue.

E.coli superbug outbreak in Germany due to abuse of antibiotics in meat production

(NaturalNews) The e.coli outbreak in Germany is raising alarm worldwide as scientists are now describing this particular strain of e.coli as "extremely aggressive and toxic." Even worse, the strain is resistant to antibiotics, making it one of the world's first widespread superbug food infections that's racking up a noticeable body count while sickening thousands.

Of course, virtually every report you'll read on this in the mainstream media has the facts wrong. This isn't about cucumbers being dangerous, because e.coli does not grow on cucumbers. E.coli is an intestinal strain of bacteria that only grows inside the guts of animals (and people). Thus, the source of all this e.coli is ANIMAL, not vegetable.

But the media won't admit that. Because the whole agenda here is to kill your vegetables but protect the atrocious practices of the factory animal meat industries. The FDA, in particular, loves all these outbreaks because it gives them more moral authority to clamp down on gardens and farms. They've been trying to irradiate and fumigate fresh veggies in the USA for years. (http://www.naturalnews.com/023015_f...)

Meanwhile, scientists have been cracking the code of this particular lethal strain of e.coli. Microbiologists from the University Clinic Hamburg-Eppendorf now say "A preliminary analysis pointed to possible reasons for this strain of E. coli's extreme aggressiveness and resistance to antibiotics. In addition, it can now be researched how this new type of E. coli strain developed, why the strain can spread at great speed and why the illness it unleashes is so serious." (http://sg.finance.yahoo.com/news/Ki...)

Complete blackout of the obvious source of this new strain

The mainstream media is predictably pretending it has no idea where this new strain came from. They're all scratching their heads and just focusing on the "killer cucumbers" which is of course a particularly lame bit of disinfo.

Want to know where this e.coli really came from? The abuse of antibiotics in factory animal farms.

What the press says about this outbreak - wow!

Some astonishing quotes from the press:

Chinese and German scientists analyzed the DNA of the E. coli bacteria and determined that the outbreak was caused by "an entirely new, super-toxic" strain that contains several antibiotic-resistant genes, according to a statement from the Shenzhen, China-based laboratory BGI. It said the strain appeared to be a combination of two types of E. coli.

"This is a unique strain that has never been isolated from patients before," Hilde Kruse, a food safety expert at the World Health Organization, told The Associated Press. The new strain has "various characteristics that make it more virulent and toxin-producing" than the many E. coli strains people naturally carry in their intestines. Preliminary genetic sequencing suggests the strain is a never before seen combination of two different E. coli bacteria, with aggressive genes that could explain why the outbreak appears to be so massive and dangerous, the agency said.


Multiple Sources of E-Coli Outbreak Attributed – Spreading Faster Than H1N1

The “e coli” outbreak (if that is really what it is) is now spreading faster than the Swine Flu of 2009 now reaching over 1800 cases worldwide, meanwhile governments are unsure of the source of the outbreak.
Governments are now questioning the official source of the outbreak claiming they have had people infected that have not attended Germany, although the official UN statement reads different.
Are we looking at another World Heath Organization scam or something different this time?
Right now top scientists are working around the clock to understand the strain better. One professor was quoted saying the following;


Mystery deepens over E. coli poisoning

An outbreak of killer E. coli that has spread to 12 countries and killed 19 people may be linked to a Hamburg festival in May and could have caused a 20th death.
As authorities continued on Saturday to hunt the source of the killer bug, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), Germany's national disease centre, is looking closely at a harbour festival that took place in Hamburg on May 6-8.


4 in US now linked to German E. coli outbreak

The United States has "one of the safest food supplies in the world," said Don Kraemer, deputy director of the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.
Not counting seafood from the Gulf of Mexico or Alaska (which the FDA is not even testing for radiation), and not to mention all the farmlands flooded with industrial waste from the neglected and decayed flood control system along the Mississippi River.
The only really safe food in the United States is whatever is being served in the White House, the Congress, and the Pentagon.


Ont. man has E. coli, Cda's first case linked to outbreak


Forensic evidence emerges that European e.coli superbug was bioengineered to produce human fatalities

When scientists at Germany's Robert Koch Institute decoded the genetic makeup of the O104 strain, they found it to be resistant to all the following classes and combinations of antibiotics:
• penicillins
• tetracycline
• nalidixic acid
• trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazol
• cephalosporins
• amoxicillin / clavulanic acid
• piperacillin-sulbactam
• piperacillin-tazobactam

In addition, this O104 strain posses an ability to produce special enzymes that give it what might be called "bacteria superpowers" known technically as ESBLs:


The E.coli outbreak in Europe is BioWar

Europe Blog
Waterboarding The World, Part 1:

Out of nowhere a strange new deadly disease has sprung up in Europe, causing an explosion of over 3,500 serious illnesses and 35 or more deaths in at least 10 European nations (and now 4 suspected cases in the U.S. - Ed.).  There are four scientific indications that this is a case of man-engineered Advanced Biowar, as well as strong circumstantial indications that this is a part of something much larger politically.

Scientifically, the four strong indications of an Advanced Biowar (genetically engineered recombination DNA) basis for this new outbreak are as follows: 

(1) Multipoint release.  That is the disease has quickly come from nowhere and is in multiple locations almost overnight.  It is now in at least ten European nations.  In writing this article, I have had to change the numbers twice (total illnesses and deaths and nations involved) as the numbers are increasing almost hourly.

(2) Multi-drug resistance.   Chinese scientists, at the Shenzhen, China laboratory BGI (working with scientists at the University Medical Center of Hamberg-Eppendorf)  have confirmed that the new bacterium carries genes that make it resistant to several classes of antibiotics!  Patients often have bloody diarrhea, and many require intensive care including kidney dialysis.

(3) No cross contaminations.  There is no contamination with fecal matter (or possible related infections) as one might expect from a E.coli infection.  In fact, Germany, which has a large number of cases, has one of the best food safety and inspection programs on Earth.  Normally E.coli infections are spread by feces contaminating food and can also be spread from person to person via the faecal-oral route due to poor hygiene.  So far these do not appear to be primary vectors for the disease and in fact the primary vector is unknown at present.

(4)  Recombination of multiple strains/DNA found.  World Health Organization scientists have confirmed that genetic sequencing tests suggest the strain, E. coli O104:H4, is a never seen before combination/hybrid of two different E. coli bacteria.  Scientists at China's Beijing Genomics Institute say that the new strain is both highly infectious and toxic and that it is similar, but not the same as, a strain (EAEC 55989) isolated in the Central African Republic known to cause serious diarrhea.  The new O104:H4 E.coli strain contains the Shiga-like biotoxin from Enterohaemorrhagic E. coli which binds to and damages kidney cells and can cause potentially fatal HUS (haemolytic uraemic syndrome) disease, which causes serious liver damage.

This is the largest E.coli outbreak and the most deadly in known human history.  This new   enterohemorrhagic strain of the bacterium Escherichia coli (EHEC) can attack the blood, kidneys, liver and brain.  Close to one-third of the cases have developed full-blown HUS (haemolytic uraemic syndrome) disease which is very unusual.  Normally in E.coli outbreaks only10% of the cases develop HUS.  Also unusual is that most victims are adult women, where normally HUS affects more children then adults. The severe bloody diarrhea, with often related kidney, liver, brain and blood damage is somewhat similar to a HEMORRHAGIC fever such as Ebola.  

The circumstantial indications that this is part of something much larger politically is that it fits into a pattern of political/economic/currency/medical/military/disaster/food shortages events and circumstances that are spreading an ever increasing level of chaos throughout the world.  I will be covering these interrelated topics in later posts.

E. coli: first tests from German farm negative


German scientists were working on Monday to confirm an organic vegetable farm as the source of an outbreak of E. coli bacteria that has killed 22 people and caused a food scare across Europe, but the first tests proved negative.
E. coli tests on 23 of the 40 samples of beansprouts from the farm in north Germany have proved negative, and the tests are not expected to be completed in the short term, the ministry said in a statement.
The manager of the farm said he could not understand how it could be the source of an infection that is usually transmitted through faeces, or food or water contaminated with faecal bacteria.
The attempt to demonize organic farming has cratered!


E.coli: Russia is right. Stick it, Brussels!

E.coli: Russia is right. Stick it, Brussels!
Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey
The World Health Organization has issued a statement claiming that "The strain of enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) isolated from cases in the EHEC infection outbreak in Germany is a rare one, seen in humans before but never in an EHEC outbreak."
. . In Germany itself there have been 520 reported cases of HUS and 1,213 of EHEC. Globally there have been a further 32 cases of HUS and 58 cases of EHEC, in the UK, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, the Czech republic, France and the USA. 21 deaths have occurred in Germany and one in Spain.

Russia is right. Stick it, Brussels!
The first thing the Russian authorities did was to ban the import of all vegetables from the European Union until the source of the infection is identified, a measure criticised by Brussels as being contrary to the World Trade Organization rules. Well, here is a message for Brussels: stick it!
Firstly, Russia is not in the WTO and secondly, who wants to buy dangerous products infected with substances which provoke extremely serious illness or even death? As Vladimir Putin said "We do not want our citizens poisoned".
So, if it isn't Spanish cucumbers, then who is going to compensate Spain for the 200 million Euro a week they lost and for the thousands of jobs destroyed? And if it isn't German bean sprouts, then is it from some other product that Germany imported or from something grown in Germany itself?
Germany? Israel? Does it matter?
Andreas Hensel, Director of the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment, quoted in TheLocal site, stated that "It doesn't matter where the products are from. They could be from Germany, Israel or wherever. At the moment we cannot narrow down the search".
One thing is obvious: the country which is found to be the culprit in this can say goodbye to its agricultural exports in the near future. Yes, it does matter. That much is certain. One hopes that this will not spark a cover-up attempt. If it is not cucumbers or bean sprouts, then what is it?
Was it a terrorist attack, as we have stated previously in this column? Or is the E.coli contained in some other substance such as bottled water?
Another point to be included in this debate is precisely what farming methods are being used in the production of meat and in the use of fertilisers in the production of vegetables. What antibiotics or growth hormones are being fed to animals? What is the effect of these antibiotics on bacteria? Are we creating superbugs and passing these onto the food we eat?
And isn't this, then, the epitome of a globalised food market such as the EU, where chickens which in their natural state take three months to rear need only a few weeks in battery farms, where the need to produce for a market of 500 million people means God alone knows what methods are employed.
Is this what the people of Europe wanted? Or did they only ever want the trade barriers for their national products to be broken down to allow for the free movement of goods... and full stop?


Genetic engineering is regularly used to produce lethal bacteria

Genetic engineering is regularly used to produce lethal bacteria
"It sounds like science fiction, but it is a deadly reality: lethal microbes, with no cure,
"Example 2: Transferring a lethal factor to harmless human gut bacteria
Genetic engineering could make previously harmless bacteria lethal biological weapons by introducing deadly genes from a highly pathogenic organism. This was done by US researchers as early as 1986. They isolated the gene for the lethal factor of Bacillus anthracis, the causative agent of anthrax, and introduced into Escherichia coli, a normally harmless gut bacteria. The US team reported that the lethal factor protein was active in E. coli and displayed the same deadly effects as it did when in its native B. anthracis. (4)"


European E-coli outbreak likely caused by Genetic Engineering run amok…

We’ve seen this story before – only a short two years ago in the Salinas Valley of Central California – the vegetable basket of the United States, hundreds of individuals seriously ill(and some deaths) from consuming vegetables tainted in some fashion by variations of the highly virulent e-coli bacterium.
In the end, in order to protect the sacred cow of the GMO industry, the Salinas Valley episode was conveniently blamed on cattle and wild pig droppings which were claimed to have occurred several miles from the apparent contamination area.
This is sound science?

So, US scientists were weaponizing E. Coli back in 1986. Having failed to convince the world that Iran is a nuclear threat justifying conquest, is Iran about to be framed for a biological false-flag attack?

Amid health fears, Diet Coke sweetener in safety spotlight

An artificial sweetener used in Diet Coke is to undergo an urgent EU safety review.
Aspartame is ingested every day by millions of people around the world in more than 6,000 well-known brands of food, drink and medicine.
However, it has been the subject of a number of studies that appear to show harmful effects on human health.
One recent study linked diet drinks containing aspartame to premature births, while another suggested it could cause cancer.


Is Your Sunscreen More Harmful Than Being in the Sun?

Most people have enough fear of skin cancer and photo-aging to give tanning salons wide berth, pun intended. But how safe are sunscreens themselves? Weeks after the New York Times exposed the caprice in assignment of sun protection factors (SPF) last year, Sen. Charles Schumer (D- New York) called on the FDA to investigate reports that an ingredient in most sunscreens — retinyl palmitate – actually causes cancer.
In one FDA study on animals, dismissed by a dermatologist consultant to sunscreen companies as “very premature to even cast doubt about the safety of this chemical,” retinyl palmitate accelerated tumors and lesions in the sun by 21 percent! (Similar studies on humans not animals would be “unethical” say scientists).
Now, some are hoping the Institute of Medicine will address the sunscreen ingredients retinyl palmitate and oxybenzone.


Top court rules feds not liable in smoking lawsuits

Just because they openly take bribes from the industry and allow it to be sold openly and freely profit from the addictive substances in it apparently doesn’t mean they have any liability at all!
By the same logic, why isn’t pot legal with the same caveats?


C’est un virage à 180°C que les « experts » officiels viennent d’opérer concernant les ondes électro-magnétiques délivrées notamment par les téléphones mobiles et les antennes relais, mais pas seulement :
L’OMS vient en effet de classifier ces ondes dans en 2B sur une échelle de 5 échelons de dangerosité, ce qui les place comme des agents cancérigènes et nocifs pour la santé humaine…

THE World Health Organization (WHO) is now admitting that mobile phones do cause cancer.

Another report issued in 2010 by the International Electromagnetic Field Cooperative (IEFC) also found a link between mobile phone usage and increased rates of brain tumors. Included in this report is a Swedish study that found a 420 percent increase in brain cancer rates among children who began using mobile and cordless phones as teenagers, as opposed to those that did not (http://www.naturalnews.com/028078_c...).
WHO is now admitting that low-energy radio waves, although lacking the energy to break chemical bonds in molecules, are still energetic enough to induce "resonance" in molecules which can lead to damage. This is the same mechanism that led MIT and John Hopkins to conclude that terahertz "Naked" scanners at the airport can damage skin DNA (despite the TSA's rigged tests claiming otherwise).
So let me go you one better.
If a cell phone putting out 2 watts next to your head can cause cancer, then what about that 50,000 watt radio or TV transmitter nearby? What about the accumulated and overlapping radio energy from millions of commercial radio and TV stations saturating the planet, and billions more small transmitters in government radios and high powered military radars?
Have we finally found the source of the plaque of the 20th and 21st centuries? Or was it already known all along, but never mentioned by the major TV news networks, for fear of losing their own livelihood?


Study downplaying cellphone risks funded by manufacturers

The World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer classified radio frequency emitted by wireless devices as possibly carcinogenic, but a panel of international scientists recently published a study challenging these findings.
The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection - composed of scientists from Britain, the United States and Sweden - said evidence is mounting against the hypothesis cellphones may cause cancer despite the findings of IARC.
But in the study's conflict of interest disclaimer, the panel acknowledged it received support from the wireless industry to conduct the research.
The Golden Rule of Science: whoever has the gold, decides the science. Keep that in mind when the Carbonazis come back with their next lie about how you are destroying the world with your empty pop bottles and need to give them your money to atone.


The United Nations’ health agency, the World Health Organization, now lists mobile phone use in the same “carcinogenic hazard” category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.
But no adverse health effects have been established, the agency explains.
The decision to list cell phones as a cancer hazard came after a team of 31 scientists from 14 countries examined peer-reviewed studies on cell phone safety.

LONDON - An international panel of experts says cellphones are possibly carcinogenic to humans after reviewing details from dozens of published studies.
The statement was issued in Lyon, France, on Tuesday by the International Agency for Research on Cancer after a weeklong meeting of experts. They reviewed possible links between cancer and the type of electromagnetic radiation found in cellphones, microwaves and radar.
The agency is the cancer arm of the World Health Organization and the assessment now goes to WHO and national health agencies for possible guidance on cellphone use.
The group classified cellphones in category 2B, meaning they are possibly carcinogenic to humans. Other substances in that category include the pesticide DDT and gasoline engine exhaust.
Last year, results of a large study found no clear link between cellphones and cancer. But some advocacy groups contend the study raised serious concerns because it showed a hint of a possible connection between very heavy phone use and glioma, a rare but often deadly form of brain tumour. However, the numbers in that subgroup weren't sufficient to make the case.
The study was controversial because it began with people who already had cancer and asked them to recall how often they used their cellphones more than a decade ago.
In about 30 other studies done in Europe, New Zealand and the U.S., patients with brain tumors have not reported using their cellphones more often than unaffected people.
Because cellphones are so popular, it may be impossible for experts to compare cellphone users who develop brain tumors with people who don't use the devices. According to a survey last year, the number of cellphone subscribers worldwide has hit 5 billion, or nearly three-quarters of the global population.
People's cellphone habits have also changed dramatically since the first studies began years ago and it's unclear if the results of previous research would still apply today.
Since many cancerous tumors take decades to develop, experts say it's impossible to conclude cellphones have no long-term health risks. The studies conducted so far haven't tracked people for longer than about a decade.
Cellphones send signals to nearby towers via radio frequency waves, a form of energy similar to FM radio waves and microwaves. But the radiation produced by cellphones cannot directly damage DNA and is different from stronger types of radiation like X-rays or ultraviolet light. At very high levels, radio frequency waves from cellphones can heat up body tissue, but that is not believed to damage human cells.
According to Cancer Research U.K., the only health danger firmly connected to cellphones is a higher risk of car accidents. The group recommends children under 16 only use cellphones for essential calls because their brains and nervous systems are still developing.
Also, a recent U.S. National Institutes of Health study found that cellphone use can speed up brain activity, but it is unknown whether that has any dangerous health effects.


High fructose corn syrup contaminated with mercury and made using a toxic chemical catalyst that can burn a hole in your stomach

Smoking-pill suicides overlooked in missing reports

Hundreds of reports of suicides, psychotic reactions and other serious problems tied to the popular stop-smoking drug Chantix were left out of a crucial government safety review because Pfizer Inc., the drug’s manufacturer, submitted years of data through “improper channels.”
Some 150 suicides — more than doubling those previously known — were among 589 delayed reports of severe issues turned up in a new analysis by the non-profit Institute for Safe Medication Practices.
“We’ve had a major breakdown in safety surveillance,” said Thomas J. Moore, the ISMP senior scientist who analyzed the data.
In this governmental climate, corporate profits must be protected at all costs, while ordinary citizens are completely expendable.


Glaxo to pay Idaho $600K over faulty drugs

British drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline PLC will pay the state of Idaho more than $600,000 for selling substandard antidepressants and other medicines produced at its former factory in Puerto Rico.
Idaho was among 37 states that filed complaints against the company under their consumer protection laws following a $750 million settlement with the federal government last October. The states reached a $40.75 million settlement with the company.


High Court limits generic companies’ duty to warn


The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that patients who are harmed by generic drugs cannot recover damages from the drug manufacturer because generic drug manufacturers have a limited duty to warn patients of adverse effects and other safety issues with their products.

More Kids Accidentally Poisoned by Prescription Medications, Study Finds

More children are coming to the emergency room after accidentally overdosing on medication, according to a study from the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
The Centers for Disease Control attributes more than 70,000 emergency room visits each year to accidental child overdoses, and the number is increasing at an alarming rate. In response, the CDC launched an initiative called PROTECT, in which public health agencies, private companies, professional organizations, health advocates and academic experts work together to prevent accidental overdoses.


FDA finally admits chicken meat contains cancer-causing arsenic (but keep eating it, yo!)

(NaturalNews) After years of sweeping the issue under the rug and hoping no one would notice, the FDA has now finally admitted that chicken meat sold in the USA contains arsenic, a cancer-causing toxic chemical that's fatal in high doses. But the real story is where this arsenic comes from: It's added to the chicken feed on purpose!

Even worse, the FDA says its own research shows that the arsenic added to the chicken feed ends up in the chicken meat where it is consumed by humans. So for the last sixty years, American consumers who eat conventional chicken have been swallowing arsenic, a known cancer-causing chemical. (http://www.phillyburbs.com/news/loc...)

Until this new study, both the poultry industry and the FDA denied that arsenic fed to chickens ended up in their meat. The fairytale excuse story we've all been fed for sixty years is that "the arsenic is excreted in the chicken feces." There's no scientific basis for making such a claim... it's just what the poultry industry wanted everybody to believe.

But now the evidence is so undeniable that the manufacturer of the chicken feed product known as Roxarsone has decided to pull the product off the shelves (http://www.grist.org/food-safety/20...). And what's the name of this manufacturer that has been putting arsenic in the chicken feed for all these years? Pfizer, of course -- the very same company that makes vaccines containing chemical adjuvants that are injected into children.

Technically, the company making the Roxarsone chicken feed is a subsidiary of Pfizer, called Alpharma LLC. Even though Alpharma now has agreed to pull this toxic feed chemical off the shelves in the United States, it says it won't necessarily remove it from feed products in other countries unless it is forced by regulators to do so. As reported by AP:


New Bill to Modernize 1938 Regulations that Allow Harmful Chemicals in Shampoos, Cosmetics

Today, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Rep. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wisc., introduced the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2011 (HR 2359), which would update the 1938 federal cosmetics laws that allow chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, learning disabilities and other illnesses into the personal care products we use daily on our bodies.
"The growing number of reports of serious health problems arising from the use of dangerous chemicals in personal care products shows a need to update our laws and protect men, women, and children from harmful exposure," said Rep. Schakowsky. "Currently, manufacturers are not required to disclose all their ingredients on labels and the FDA has no power to supervise the use of toxic chemicals in cosmetics."
The cosmetics companies claim that because their products are applied externally, that they do not come under the jurisdiction of the FDA, and cosmetics companies tithe congresscritters to make sure they can operate free of oversight. But anyone who has done the garlic-in-feet experiment knows that chemicals on the skin do penetrate into the body, and common sense has to tell you that every fragrance you smell is by default already inside your sinuses and lungs and able to enter the bloodstream as readily as, for example. snorted cocaine.
Long time readers will recall the years of pain suffered by my wife (and the thousands of dollars wasted on failed conventional medical care) before we figured out that formaldehyde precursors in cosmetics were the problem.


Studies confirm link between cholesterol drugs and higher rates of diabetes

Seven years after the American Diabetes Association urged all diabetics, regardless of whether or not they had high cholesterol, to take statin drugs because they "may have some other qualities that have not been tested," a new analysis published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that statin drugs actually cause diabetes.
The findings also confirm the general ineptitude of American disease and medical groups that continually push dangerous drugs on the public that have never been adequately verified for safety or effectiveness.


Reduced Brain Function, Early Death in Elderly Linked to Common Drugs

According to the findings of a new study, some commonly used antihistamines, antidepressants, epilepsy drugs and painkillers could reduce brain function among the elderly and lead to an early death.
Researchers from the University of East Anglia in the U.K. found that drugs affecting certain types of brain function, known as anticholinergic activity, appeared to be linked to a higher mortality rate in people over the age of 65. The findings were published last week in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.


MSG linked to weight gain


Researchers found that people who eat more MSG are more likely to be overweight or obese. And the increased risk wasn't simply because people were stuffing themselves with MSG-rich foods. The link between high MSG intake and being overweight held even after accounting for the total number of calories people ate.
Ka He, a nutrition expert at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, who led the study, said that although the risk of weight gain attributable to MSG was modest, the implications for public health are substantial. "Everybody eats it," He told Reuters Health.

“Shocking” Mass Media News About Big Pharma Drugs & Alzheimer’s

Short version: Pectin used in the canning process releases methyl alcohol (wood alcohol) into the canned food. After eating the canned food, the methyl alcohol crosses the blood-brain barrier and poisons brain cells, both directly and by the formation of formaldehyde, which normally would be kept away from the brain by the blood-brain barrier. But the canning and pectin corporations don't want to change what they sell just because it fries peoples' brains, and the pharmaceutical industry sees this as an opportunity to market new Alzheimer's drugs (even if they do not actually work).


It's not all white: The cocktail of up to 20 chemicals in a glass of milk


A glass of milk can contain a cocktail of up to 20 painkillers, antibiotics and growth hormones, scientists have shown.
Using a highly sensitive test, they found a host of chemicals used to treat illnesses in animals and people in samples of cow, goat and human breast milk.
The doses of drugs were far too small to have an effect on anyone drinking them, but the results highlight how man-made chemicals are now found throughout the food chain.


Mystery Virus Kills 2 In South Korea

According to news reports, eight patients from different parts of the country have been hospitalized in recent months with similar cold or flu-like symptoms, including cough and difficulty breathing. Seven of the eight had recently given birth or were expecting. The first victim to die was nine months pregnant; the second was also due to deliver before her death. Doctors were able to save both babies. The expectant women died of multiple organ failure triggered by severe scarring and thickening of the lung tissue.
The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said all patients have been transferred to a hospital in the country's capital city of Seoul, and are receiving treatment in intensive care. Two were released after receiving lung transplants.
Even though the number of cases is small, whether this is bacterial or viral, the fact that it seems to be hitting primarily expectant women or women who have given birth is absolutely a cause for concern, particularly if the causative factor turns out to be air borne.


Fleas test positive for plague near Flagstaff, — No Need to Freak Out, Health Officials Say

FLAGSTAFF, AZ - Fleas collected from a remote area of Coconino County have tested positive for plague.
Coconino County health officials said Tuesday the fleas were collected from burrows that were being monitored due to a die off of prairie dogs around Doney Park, northeast of Flagstaff.
Area residents have been notified and the burrows have been treated.
Plague is a disease carried by rodents and rabbits, and sometimes of the predators that feed on them. The disease can be transmitted to humans and other animals by the bite of an infected flea, or by direct contact with an infected animal.
Symptoms include fever, chills, headache, weakness, muscle pain, and swollen lymph glands.

The deadly fungus that could be festering in your dishwasher

Ironically, the lower water temperatures and less acidic detergents in modern dishwashers introduced because of environmental concerns are letting the fungi breed, fed by the organic detritus left over from meals, she said.
This is another example of the environmentalists not thinking things all the way through. They demanded dish soaps that were friendly to nature, but forgot that fungus and bacteria that pose a threat to human health are part of nature. So now we have dishwashers that do not really clean the dishes and worse, have become "environmentally friendly" breeding grounds for deadly pathogens.

Herbal medicines banned as EU directive comes into force

Daily Mail
Patients have lost access to hundreds of herbal medicines today, after European regulations came into force.
Sales of all herbal remedies, except for a small number of popular products for 'mild' illness such as echinacea for colds and St John's Wort for depression have been banned...
For the first time traditional products must be licensed or prescribed by a registered herbal practitioner.

Both herbal remedy practitioners and manufacturers fear they could be forced out of business as a result.

Some of the most  commonly used products were saved after the Health Secretary Andrew Lansley approved a plan for the Health Professions Council to establish a register of practitioners supplying unlicensed herbal medicines.

However, many remedies were lost as it was only open to those who could afford the licensing process which costs between £80,000 to £120,000.

Not enough sunshine is putting millions of us at risk from diabetes

A lack of sunshine is putting millions of people at risk of diabetes because they don't have enough vitamin D, researchers have said.
A large study found that people with plenty of it in their system were less likely to develop type 2 diabetes.
The research, carried out in Australia, could play a major role in combating the condition which has been increasing in recent years.


Conventional medicine finally admits MS caused by vitamin D deficiency

Is it true that those who suffer from Multiple sclerosis (MS) just need a little sun? Researchers at the University of Oxford seem to think so. In 2006, a study by the Journal of the American Medical Association suggested higher levels of vitamin D might decrease overall risk of developing MS. Now researchers at the University of Oxford are backing that study with further evidence while also suggesting a link between lack of sunlight and how the body responds when faced with an infection. The research concludes that MS is caused by several factors working in combination but clearly correlates to a lack of vitamin D.


Marijuana might cause new cell growth in the brain


Ever wonder why booze is legal and pot isn't!
A synthetic chemical similar to the active ingredient in marijuana makes new cells grow in rat brains. What is more, in rats this cell growth appears to be linked with reducing anxiety and depression. The results suggest that marijuana, or its derivatives, could actually be good for the brain.
In mammals, new nerve cells are constantly being produced in a part of the brain called the hippocampus, which is associated with learning, memory, anxiety and depression. Other recreational drugs, such as alcohol, nicotine and cocaine, have been shown to suppress this new growth.


Indian farmers commit suicide due to devastation caused by GM crops

Foundational changes that have taken place in the agriculture sector of India have led to a epidemic of farmer suicides over the past 16 years, according to a new report. Released by the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at New York University's (NYU) Law School, the report explains that, on average, one Indian farmer commits suicide every 30 minutes in response to the devastation caused by the effects of globalization on agriculture, and genetically-modified organisms (GMO) in particular.
If ever this was an indictment of GMO crops, this is it.
Of course, most of the corporate media will simply ignore this, and tell you just how wonderful genetically modified crops are for you to eat.
You might want to empower yourself by doing your own research about the safety of GMO foods, and I would recommend that you might want to start here:


Half of children unnecessarily receiving scans for head injuries

Doctors say that simply observing the condition of young patients in emergency wards is equally safe, particularly as severe brain injuries are rare.
They claim that in many cases children are only given CT scans, which expose them to potentially dangerous doses of radiation, in order to ease their parents’ fears after they suffer an accident.


Pharmacists give themselves cancer from dispensing toxic chemotherapy chemicals

Chemotherapy drugs are extremely toxic to the human body, and they are readily absorbed through the skin. The very idea that they are even used in modern medicine is almost laughable if it weren't so downright disturbing and sad that hundreds of thousands of people are killed each year around the world by chemotherapy drugs.
Now you can add pharmacists to that statistic. For decades, they simply looked the other way, pretending they were playing a valuable role in our system of "modern" medicine, not admitting they were actually doling out chemicals that killed people. Now, the sobering truth has struck them hard: They are in the business of death, and it is killing them off, one by one.
The Seattle Times now reports the story of Sue Crump, a veteran pharmacist of two decades who spent much of her time dispensing chemotherapy drugs. Sue died last September of pancreatic cancer, and one of her dying wishes was that the truth would be told about how her on-the-job exposure to chemotherapy chemicals contributed to her own cancer.


The Vaccine Machine: A Look Inside The Immunization Dilemma

“Selling vaccines is extremely profitable and the process of mandating vaccines is fraught with conflicts of interest,” Michael Belkin, father of a child who died post-vaccination, told health officials. “The business model of having the government mandate [that] everyone must buy your product is a monopolist’s delight.
“My 5-week-old daughter, Lyla Rose, died within 16 hours of her hepatitis B vaccination, which she received because of the universal vaccination policy this Committee instituted."


78 percent of Pakistani children with polio were given polio vaccines

In the last year, as Pakistan has lost favor with the US and UNICEF, polio virus has paralyzed increasing numbers of Pakistani youth, casting doubt on the good intentions of those who fight polio. To make matters worse, most of the new cases have occurred in children already vaccinated.
The type of polio vaccine administered may be a significant cause of the problem.
I would like to hope that this has simply been a terrible error in judgement, and not deliberate.

Study shows that 'more than half' of measles outbreak cases had been vaccinated

The Sovereign Independent
According to the Irish independent this week, the Health Service Executive in Ireland is warning of a measles outbreak whereby the blame is laid on visits to Europe by children.
They claim that 1 in 5 cases, that they ‘had visited Europe or been in contact with someone who had traveled here from the continent in the weeks before they fell ill.'
They go on to state that apparently 42 cases were reported in Ireland this year. Of these, 8 were too young for ‘vaccination’ with ‘almost half’ of the remainder of cases, ‘almost’ half of 34, in children who were ‘unvaccinated’ with the MMR ‘vaccine’.


Gardasil Ingredient caused sterility in lab rats

An ingredient of the Gardasil HPV vaccination has known carcinogenic and sterility affects in lab rats
Know as Polysorbrate 80 or Tween 80 it is a food additive that enables solubility of flavoring oils with water and is used widely - however few know the effects of this chemical when injected directly into the body.
“Polysorbate 80 injected into prepubescent rats caused a rapid growth of reproductive organs, but growth was abnormal and the rats were sterile, unable to have children. When used intravenously with vitamins it has been known to cause anaphylactic shock. According to the Polysorbate 80 MSDS, it may be a carcinogenic, (cause cancer), as well as a mutagenic, (birth defects).”


Useless Studies, Real Harm

LAST month, the Archives of Internal Medicine published a scathing reassessment of a 12-year-old research study of Neurontin, a seizure drug made by Pfizer. The study, which had included more than 2,700 subjects and was carried out by Parke-Davis (now part of Pfizer), was notable for how poorly it was conducted. The investigators were inexperienced and untrained, and the design of the study was so flawed it generated few if any useful conclusions. Even more alarming, 11 patients in the study died and 73 more experienced “serious adverse events.” Yet there have been few headlines, no demands for sanctions or apologies, no national bioethics commissions pledging to investigate. Why not?


Gardasil Researcher Speaks Out

Dr. Scott Ratner and his wife, who's also a physician, expressed similar concerns as Dr. Harper in an interview with CBS News last year. One of their teenage daughters became severely ill after her first dose of Gardasil. Dr. Ratner says she'd have been better off getting cervical cancer than the vaccination. "My daughter went from a varsity lacrosse player at Choate to a chronically ill, steroid-dependent patient with autoimmune myofasciitis. I've had to ask myself why I let my eldest of three daughters get an unproven vaccine against a few strains of a nonlethal virus that can be dealt with in more effective ways."


Gardasil Warnings

One major aspect of the Gardasil I neglected to mention, the vaccine also causes sterility in young women - based on Dr. Leonard Horowitz's findings.


Stealth Vaccine Laws Allow Children to Consent to Vaccines

Natural News
A current California bill, AB 499, would "allow a minor who is 12 years of age or older to consent to medical care related to the prevention of a sexually transmitted disease."[1] That is, children as young as 12 will be able to get a Gardasil or other STD vaccine without their parents' knowledge or consent if this bill passes...

USDA Moves to Let Monsanto Perform Its Own Environmental Impact Studies on GMOs

In early April, the USDA made what I’m reading as a second response to Judge White, this one even more craven. To satisfy the legal system’s pesky demand for environmental impact studies of novel GMO crops, the USDA has settled upon a brilliant solution: let the GMO industry conduct its own environmental impact studies, or pay other researchers to.


Drinking water in thousands of homes 'contaminated with harmful levels of methane'

A controversial natural gas production technique is contaminating drinking water in tens of thousands of homes, according to a study.
Scientists collected 68 drinking water samples from near gas drilling sites in Pennsylvania and New York.
They found potentially harmful levels of methane in the water due to its proximity to the process of hydraulic-fracturing, or fracking.


CDC admits flu vaccines don't work (which is why you need a new one every year)

Do the math, folks. This is not rocket science. If flu shots worked as well as your own immune response to a natural infection, then you would only need one shot in your entire life for any given viral flu strain. But that, of course, would be bad for vaccine profits. They need suckers to believe in annual flu shots so they can keep raking in the big bucks year after year.
Well, according to the CDC, "Vaccines wear off."

Vaccines wear off, they say

Yep, that's their cover story. The vaccines "wear off."

But hold on a minute. There's something fishy about this. Because human antibodies normally last a lifetime, remember? That's why you don't get the chicken pox over and over again; because the first time you got the chicken pox as a kid, your body created chicken pox antibodies and those antibodies last a lifetime.

Thus, your immune system offers you lifetime immunity from the chicken pox.

The vaccine industry false tries to claim its vaccines work exactly the same way: They cause the body to produce antibodies against a certain viral strain. But there's something you're not being told about vaccines: They don't really produce the same quality and strength of antibodies that your own body would produce from a natural infection and recovery. That's why the vaccines "wear off" and leave you with zero protection from the very strains they inoculate you against.

In other words, vaccines don't work as advertised. And that's why the vaccine industry has to keep pushing the same vaccine strains year after year. Because, think about it: If vaccines actually worked as intended, they would give you lifetime immunity against whatever strains you were injected with, right? And yet the CDC now openly admits vaccines don't offer that at all:

"This year's flu shot will be a duplicate of last year's because the same flu strains are still circulating," reports the Associated Press in an article about the CDC. "Government health officials are urging nearly everyone to get this fall's flu shot. They say a vaccine's protection can fade significantly after several months." (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110527...)

Vaccine protection fades after a few months? Well then, vaccines must not actually cause the body to react with producing its own antibodies, because those antibodies, we're told, offer lifetime immunity.


New book reveals why childhood vaccines, flu shots and other kinds of inoculations have contributed to the dramatic decline of natural immunity

(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 12, 2011 ) Landrum, SC – Andreas Moritz, bestselling author of over a dozen health books, including the bestselling Cancer is Not a Disease and Timeless Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation, announces the release of a new book that questions the benefits of vaccination.
In Vaccine-nation, Poisoning the Population, One Shot at a Time, Moritz provides the scientific evidence that shows vaccination suppresses the primary immune system located in the gut, also called
cellular immune system.

Vaccines bypass this essential part of the immune system and merely provoke the secondary immune response, called the anti-body response. However, while activating the anti-body response, vaccines automatically shut down the primary immune system, which poses a long-term health risk.

A normal exposure to pathogens always begins in the nasal, ear, throat, and respiratory passages, never through injection. Once primary immunity has been established by going though an infection, the antibody response follows. This allows the immune system to grow stronger and learn to bestow natural and permanent immunity to an ever-increasing number of pathogens.

Just evoking an antibody response without establishing primary immunity first has serious consequences. That’s also why the vaccinated population has a much higher rate of infections than the non-vaccinated population. For example, research shows that vaccinated versus unvaccinated children suffer:

- five times more asthma
- nearly three times more allergies
- over three times more ear infections
- over four times more apnea and near miss cot death
- nearly four times more bouts of recurring tonsillitis
- ten times more hyperactivity

Vaccinated children also have 317% more ADHD, 185% more neurologic disorders and 146% more autism than non-vaccinated children.



New study: Nations requiring the most vaccines tend to have the worst infant mortality rates

A new study, published in Human and Experimental Toxicology, a peer-reviewed journal indexed by the National Library of Medicine, found that nations with higher (worse) infant mortality rates tend to give their infants more vaccine doses. For example, the United States requires infants to receive 26 vaccines -- the most in the world -- yet more than six U.S. infants die per every 1000 live births. In contrast, Sweden and Japan administer 12 vaccines to infants, the least amount, and report less than three deaths per 1000 live births.


Merck-Backed Rick Perry Tried To Mandate HPV Vaccines For All Young Girls In Texas

Texas Governor Rick Perry can try all he wants to mimic the liberty-oriented language of honest presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul, but it will never erase the fact that he signed an executive order in 2007 mandating that all teenage girls in the Lone Star State, starting at age 12, receive the dangerous HPV vaccine.
Worse, lobbyist Mike Toomey — Merck & Co., the maker of the Gardasil, hired Toomey back in 2005 to promote the vaccine in Texas — is now running Mr. Perry’s presidential candidacy “super pac.”


New concerns over swine flu jab after children given it 'hit by sudden sleep syndrome'

Caroline Hadfield, of Frome, Somerset, believes her five-year-old son Joshua contracted narcolepsy after being vaccinated with Pandemrix last January.
Within weeks of having the jab, Joshua began sleeping 18 hours a day and Mrs Hadfield says his personality completely changed.
Mrs Hadfield, 40, said: ‘I believe this link will eventually be confirmed. I’m very angry about it.
‘I researched the vaccine carefully before agreeing to let Joshua have it and thought I was protecting him. Now he’s saddled with this for life.'


Prominent Doctor Agrees Vaccination May Increase Autism Risk

Autism, a neurological condition that affects children’s social and communicative abilities, is becoming increasingly common. In the United States today, one of out every 150 babies is affected by autism or another similar brain development disorder.
Dr. Russell Blaylock has attributed this rise in brain development disorders to the inclusion of harmful preservatives in today’s most common vaccines. Since most children receive 12 or more injections before their first birthday, according to Dr. Blaylock, the preservatives in vaccines must be playing a role in affecting the brain development of babies.


Gates Foundation Partner in Malawi Vaccinates 131 Children At Gunpoint

The Gates Foundation has long been in an aggressive effort to vaccinate the world and often targets poor Africans. The Gates’ web site showcases Melinda Gates applauding Malawi for enforcing vaccine programs with its helpful “health surveillance assistants.”
She calls Malawi one of the few countries “on track to reach the UN Millennium Development Goal.” And who are those assistants meeting the goal? Hyper-vigilant medics with help from police.
Malawi Voice recently reported that about 131 children from Nsanje were vaccinated with anti-measles at gunpoint last week. They had fled from previous vaccine mandates into nearby towns, but after officials learned they had returned, medics along with police escorts tracked the children and forced them to vaccinate.
The children belonged to Zion and Atumwi Churches and parents took them into Mozambique to hide from officials with vaccines.
It is unclear if those churches prohibit the use of vaccines, but a Malawi man with a Seventh Day Apostolic faith found himself sentenced to two year’s imprisonment for refusing to let his three children receive the measles vaccine.
He did not believe in going to doctors or receiving vaccinations. Police said that they believed one of his children died from measles and he was charged for “endangering life by failing to supply necessities of life to a person under one’s care without lawful excuse.” According to a penal code. He pleaded for a light sentence because he cares for orphans, but the charges stand.

Rick Perry's HPV Vaccine Law Sparks Political Fight That Ignores Health Issues

As the Republican presidential field continues to attack Texas Gov. Rick Perry's executive order mandating the HPV vaccine for young girls, health advocates are growing worried that the vaccine itself is being stigmatized.
Health care advocates are worried that all the negative rhetoric could cause the public to sour on the HPV vaccine itself, which has been proven to dramatically reduce the risk of contracting the particular strains of the virus that cause cervical cancer.
Webmaster's Commentary: 
First, please remember: vaccine manufacturers are indemnified and held harmless for any injury or death any vaccine causes, courtesy of the Patriot Act.
As to those "health care advocates", warbling the praises of this product, one has to wonder just how much of their personal portfolios are heavily invested in MERCK & COMPANY. The testing time for this product was exceptionally short, before it was approved by the FDA. However, here is what we know so far:
1. Gardasil implicated in outbreaks of Genital Warts
3. Since its approval, there have been at least 3,461 filed complaints of adverse reactions to the Gardasil vaccine. According to the "Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System," as of January 31, 2010, there have been 49 U.S. reports of death among females who have received Gardasil. According to Judicial Watch, several instances of blood clots were reported to have occurred after the administration of Gardasil. Other side effects including paralysis, Bells Palsy, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, and seizures were also reported.
4. Why is HPV recombinant DNA showing up in Gardasil-vaccinated women?
5. Between May 2009 and September 2010 alone, Gardasil was linked to 3,589 harmful reactions and 16 deaths. Of the 3,589 adverse reactions, many were debilitating
6. Texas' Governor Perry was a recipient of generous donations from MERCK before mandating middle school girls in his state be vaccinated with Gardasil. That $5,000 figure isn’t the whole picture. While Perry was indeed the recipient of that amount during his 2006 gubernatorial reelection bid, on the same day Perry’s staff met for a briefing on the vaccine, Merck PAC has donated nearly $30,000 to the Perry campaign since 2000, according to Texas Ethics Commission reports. The largest sum from Merck came in October 2004, when the major pharmaceutical group donated $10,000 to Perry’s coffers. The company has given $7,500 to the governor’s campaign since Perry’s ill-fated executive order.
7. MERCK buys legislation in California
The pattern here is very clear: MERCK is "buying" US state government approval to "mandate"/suggest the use of their product, Gardasil, which has a history of maiming and killing young girls and women.
Of course, in the making of millions from this dubious product, MERCK executives are laughing all the way to the bank, no matter how many are made ill, or die from its use.

Perry lies again about Texas Gardasil scandal, claims woman he met after signing executive order lobbied him to pass it

"I got lobbied on this issue," said a calm and composed Perry. "I got lobbied by a 31 year old young lady who had stage-four cervical cancer. I spent a lot of time with her. She came by my office. She talked to me about this program. I readily admitted we should have had an opt-in (for the mandate) but I don't know what part of opt out most parents don't get. The fact is I was on the side of life and I will always be on the side of life as a governor and as president of the United States."
Webmaster's Commentary: 
On this one issue alone, Perry needs to be thrown out of all public office. Three days after receiving a huge campaign contribution from Merck, maker of Gardasil (and Vioxx), Governor Rick Perry issued an executive order mandating Gardasil shots for all 11-year old Texas schoolgirls.
Why is this mass vaccination of 11-year old girls a problem? Well, for one thing, the illness the vaccine is claimed to protect against, human papillomavirus, only affects 1/100th of one percent of the human population. For another, women tend to contract the virus in their 30s, and even Merck estimates (guesses) the vaccination is only good for 5 years. That means this vaccination, costing $360 for the three shot series, will have faded completely away by the time these young girls are likely to be exposed to the virus!
The vaccine only protects (supposedly) against four of the 100 strains of human papillomavirus and because the incubation period of the virus leading to cancer is 20 years, Merck cannot actually prove that the vaccine actually works. During the clinical trials, Mercy pointed proudly to the fact that none of the test subjects came down with cervical cancer. Left unsaid is that neither did anyone in the control placebo group.
But this gets even better. The Gardasil vaccine contains Polysorbate 80 (also known as Tween 80), a known carcinogen. Given the extreme rarity of the cancer this vaccine is supposed to protect against, it may well be that Gardasil will cause more cancers than it actually prevents.
Moreover, Polysorbate 80 is known to disrupt the reproductive cycle and cause infertility in live animal tests. But because this vaccine is being mandated for 11 year old girls, reproductive damage will take years, possibly more than a decade, to become apparent.
According to the World Intellectual Property Organization, which is part of the United Nations, scientists from the organization are developing vaccines specifically to damage fertility as a method of contraception. A suggested ingredient for the vaccine is tween 80 (polysorbate 80)
And Rick Perry made it mandatory for your little girls to be shot full of this crap!

Vaccine Lobby Launches Gardasil Safety Hoax

In the aftermath of Rep. Michele Bachmann’s comments about the Gardasil shot causing mental retardation, vaccine lobbyists and the pharmaceutical-friendly establishment media have launched a new hoax claiming the vaccine is completely safe, despite the CDC’s own figures confirming over 18,000 cases of adverse reactions.
ToiletThe HPV vaccine has become a presidential campaign talking point, after Ron Paul slammed rival Rick Perry when he pointed out that the Texas Governor’s former chief of staff was a lobbyist for Merck at the same time Perry mandated all girls in Texas receive the shot with an executive order.

California Passes Vaccinations Without Parental Consent

Dr. Mercola
The state of California has just passed bill AB499, which will permit minor children as young as 12 years old to be vaccinated with sexually transmitted disease vaccines like Gardasil without parental knowledge or parental consent. This means that if you live in California, school or medical personnel would be allowed to vaccinate your child against an STD without your ever knowing it.

At issue, of course, is whether 12-year-olds are mature enough to fully analyze the benefits versus risks of vaccination (or any medical treatment for that matter), or recognize the alternatives to STD prevention, such as abstinence. Meanwhile, a child could suffer a vaccine reaction and the parent, not knowing the child had been vaccinated, could mistake it for the flu or another condition, delaying getting help until it is too late.

But, perhaps the greatest issue of all is whether this law violates your basic right to be involved in important decisions regarding your child's health.

Narcolepsy cases rising after swine flu vaccine


Ninety-three people in Sweden, most of them children, have been diagnosed with narcolepsy since taking the swine flu vaccine Pandemrix last winter, according to figures from the Swedish Medical Products Agency (Läkemedelsverket).
In 88 of the 93 cases, the agency has identified a direct correlation between the vaccine and the onset of narcolepsy, a sleep disorder causing extreme drowsiness and daytime sleep attacks.

According to the Swedish Association of Persons with Neurological Disabilities (Neurologiskt handikappades riksförbund - NHR), the agency is examining a further 135 cases involving children and will present its full findings later this summer.


Autism and vaccines, a surprising connection.

"The article in the Journal of Immunotoxicology is entitled 'Theoretical aspects of autism: Causes--A review.' The author is Helen Ratajczak, surprisingly herself a former senior scientist at a pharmaceutical firm. Ratajczak did what nobody else apparently has bothered to do: she reviewed the body of published science since autism was first described in 1943. Not just one theory suggested by research such as the role of MMR shots, or the mercury preservative thimerosal; but all of them.
Ratajczak's article states, in part, that "Documented causes of autism include genetic mutations and/or deletions, viral infections, and encephalitis [brain damage] following vaccination [emphasis added]. Therefore, autism is the result of genetic defects and/or inflammation of the brain." ...

Analysis Finds Evidence of Autism in Many Vaccine Injury Cases

For years, government health officials and most other medical authorities have dismissed the idea that autism might be linked to childhood vaccines. And the special court set up by Congress to compensate people hurt by vaccines has denied thousands of claims over the past decade by parents who have contended that their children developed autism because of their inoculations.
But a new report in a New York law school journal, the Pace Environmental Law Review, could reignite the often-inflammatory debate over the issue. Based on a sampling of cases in which plaintiffs won settlements or awards in vaccine court, the authors found that many of the victims demonstrated evidence of autism – even though, perhaps as a legal tactic, their lawsuits emphasized other injuries.

83 Cases of Autism Associated with Childhood Vaccine Injury Compensated in Federal Vaccine Court

For over 20 years, the federal government has publicly denied a vaccine-autism link, while at the same time its Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has been awarding damages for vaccine injury to children with brain damage, seizures and autism. A new investigation, based on verifiable government data, breaks ground in the controversial vaccine-autism debate. The investigation found that a substantial number of children compensated for vaccine injury also have autism and that such cases have existed since 1989, the year after the VICP was formed.


More than 2,000 vaccinated babies died: The cost of doing business

(NaturalNews) Earlier this month (March 2011), Japanese authorities ordered doctors to stop using pneumococcal and Hib vaccines because four children died after receiving the shots. However, the real news was never reported: more than 2,000 babies died in the United States after receiving vaccines for these very same diseases, yet authorities refuse to warn parents and halt production. A safety review is vital to determine whether a recall of the dangerous shots may be necessary to protect additional American babies from disability and death.
According to Shelly Burgess, an FDA spokesperson, the FDA and CDC "have not detected new safety concerns or unusual reporting patterns." That's odd, because the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), jointly operated by the FDA and CDC, has received more than 59,000 reports of adverse reactions to pneumococcal and Hib vaccines during the past several years. More than half of these cases - 30,094 - required hospitalization, with 2,169 deaths. About 95 percent of these deaths were in children under three years of age.

Young people should not take flu vaccine, watchdog says

Children should no longer be given a widely-used flu vaccine over concerns it is linked to a rare sleep disorder, the European drug regulator has recommended.

The European Medicine Agency said that Pandemrix should only be given to the under-20s if they are at risk of contracting swine flu and alternative jabs are not available.
Its announcement comes after studies showed that young people who were given the vaccine were at increased risk of developing narcolepsy, which causes sufferers to fall asleep unexpectedly...

This reaction results in the formation of 2-methylimidazole and 4-methylimidazole, both of which are chemicals documented by the U.S. government to cause cancer in mammals.


Why guzzling diet drinks could make you FATTER - they can trigger the appetite

Diet soft drinks can actually make people fatter, say scientists.
Reaching for the Diet cola is a bad idea for those trying to cut calories - because it may make you want to eat more, according to two studies.
Artificial sweeteners could be to blame, as they were shown to increase blood sugar levels over time, and researchers believe they could also actually trigger the appetite.
In one study that followed nearly 500 people, those who drank any amount of the soft drinks each day had 70 per cent bigger waists after a decade than those who drank none.


Original post - hat tip to Mr. Corporanon.
That's the same rare mutation for which the historical record shows an increase in frequency, suddenly, from around one in 40,000 to one in five. That was no typo: CCR5-delta32 went from one quarter of a thousandth of a per cent to 20 per cent. When? Why the middle ages of course. Where? Northern Europe. Why? Natural selection. Everyone without the mutation died.
From the Black Death.
The mutation that confers immunity to the plague just so happens to protect against AIDS.
What a coincidence! Which reminds me (and this ought to really cook your noodle):
It protects against H1N1 as well.


THREE Melbourne oncologists say cancer treatment research published in one of the world's most prestigious medical journals may have been compromised by a drug company that funded the study.
Publication of the research in The Lancet may have boosted the drug's perceived value to doctors and patients around the world, helping its manufacturer, Roche, make billions of dollars from the product, they said.

100 Compiled Studies on Vaccine Dangers

Activist Post
There is no shortage of research regarding the negative effects of a wide variety of vaccines. From Gardasil to the seasonal flu shot, studies have proven that the extreme risks associated with vaccinating oftentimes outweigh the minor benefits. Here is a fraction of the research (over 100 studies) tying vaccines to a host of health conditions, broken down by category...


The author of a study linking vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella to an increased risk of autism said the research was “not a hoax,” contrary to reports in the British Medical Journal calling the findings a fraud.
Andrew Wakefield, who led the study published in the Lancet in 1998 and retracted last year, said he stands by the paper’s methodology and results, which have been duplicated in five other countries, according to a statement released today.
“My research and the serious medical problems found in those children were not a hoax and there was no fraud whatsoever,” Wakefield said. “Nor did I seek to profit from our findings.”

Dear NaturalNews readers,
In the dark of night, the US Senate passed S.510 last night with a unanimous consent voice vote (not a single US Senator opposed it).
It's now headed back to the House for a possible vote on Tuesday.
The U.S. House of Representatives has now passed HR 2751, the Food Safety Modernization Act. The bill is now headed to the White House to be signed into law.
Today, I write about the Law of Unintended Consequences and why this food safety act, although perhaps well-intentioned, will actually cause our food to be far more dangerous and more highly contaminated with pesticides.
It will also destroy U.S. farming jobs and cause the price of fresh produce to skyrocket. How could this happen? Read on:

Leaked cables from Wikileaks reveal that
the Pope strongly supports GMOs!

(NaturalNews) In arguing for S.510, the "Food Safety Modernization Act," there are all sorts of attorneys, legislators and internet commentators who keep claiming, "The government won't try to control the food production of small farms." They say, "Your backyard garden is safe" and that the feds won't come knocking on your door to control your seeds or foods.
As usual, these pushers of Big Government are utterly ignorant of the history in their own country. Because as you'll learn right here, not only CAN the U.S. government control and dictate to single-family farms what they can grow in their own backyards; the government has already blatantly done so!


Hexane may be lurking in the soy protein found in popular food bars

Protein bars, breakfast bars, really anything in bar form just makes sense in our dine while dashing society. The question is, what is it you're really eating? Most of these bars claim to offer healthy, wholesome energy, but what you may not have realized is that the process to create "soy protein isolate," which is often a primary ingredient in protein bars, utilizes a toxic solvent called Hexane.
Hexane is an industrial waste by-product of gasoline that, according to the EPA, can cause polyneuropathy in humans.


Cancer Society spends more on fundraising than research


CBC's Marketplace analyzed the Canadian Cancer Society’s financial reports dating back a dozen years. It discovered that each year, as the society raised more dollars, the proportion of money it spent on research dropped dramatically — from 40.3 per cent in 2000 to under 22 per cent in 2011.
Hardly a unique situation. Many large-scale charities that advertise on TV have been hit with scandals over how little of the money donated actually goes to help the supposed beneficiaries.


Johnson & Johnson, the world’s largest maker of health-care products, expanded its recall of over-the-counter drugs made at a shuttered Pennsylvania plant after records showed equipment wasn’t cleaned properly.

Stanford faculty still taking drug firms' money
December 20, 2010, San Francisco Chronicle/ProPublica
Last year, Stanford banned its physicians from giving paid promotional talks for pharmaceutical companies. One thing it didn't do was make sure its faculty followed that rule. A ProPublica investigation ["Dollars for Docs"] found that more than a dozen of the school's doctors were paid speakers in apparent violation of Stanford policy - two of them were paid six figures since last year. Conflict-of-interest policies have become increasingly important as academic medical centers worry that promotional talks undermine the credibility not only of the physicians giving them, but also of the institutions they represent. Yet when it comes to enforcing the policies, universities have allowed permissive interpretations and relied on the honor system. That approach isn't working. Many physicians are in apparent violation, and ignorance or confusion about the rules is widespread. As a result, some faculty physicians stay on the industry lecture circuit, where they can net tens of thousands of dollars in additional income. Critics of the practice say delivering talks for drug companies is incompatible with teaching future generations of physicians. That's because drug firms typically pick the topic of the lecture, train the speakers and require them to use company-provided presentation slides.
Note: "Dollars for Docs" is an ongoing investigation into the influence of drug company marketing payments on medical providers. To search for a doctor in the database, click here.


A new Consumer Reports survey has found that the vast majority of patients on prescription drug medications believe that drug companies have too much influence over their doctors. Roughly half of those interviewed believe that their doctors are so influenced by Big Pharma that they would deliberately write a drug prescription even if a better, safer, non-drug option was available.


Mixing commonly used antibiotics with common blood pressure medications may cause hypotension (abnormally low blood pressure) and induce shock in older patients, requiring hospitalization, according to a study published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal) (pre-embargo link only) http://www.cmaj.ca/embargo/cmaj100702.pdf.
This study was conducted among Ontarians 66 years and older who were treated with a calcium-channel blocker (drugs often used to treat high blood pressure) between 1994 and 2009. The researchers then identified those who were hospitalized for low blood pressure and, in that group, whether or not a macrolide antibiotic had been prescribed shortly beforehand.
Webmaster's Commentary: 
Please, if you are on any medication, and your doctor puts you on an antibiotic, please ask that doctor to check that combination against the PDR (physician's desk reference) to see if there can be any side-effects from that combination.
Remember: physicians generally only know about the drugs they prescribe from those very slick pamphlets they get from the drug company sales people, and next to nothing about nutrition.

Much of what medical researchers conclude in their studies is misleading, exaggerated, or flat-out wrong. So why are doctors—to a striking extent—still drawing upon misinformation in their everyday practice? Dr. John Ioannidis has spent his career challenging his peers by exposing their bad science.

A 'miracle' slimming pill may have killed thousands of people in France and could become the worst health scandal in the nation's history.

And for 30 years it was also used as an appetite-suppressing drug by thousands of healthy men and women, with its cost even subsidised by the French healthcare system.
But a forthcoming official report is now warning that it may be linked to the deaths of up to 2,000 people and caused heart problems in 3,500 more.

The badge and a steroid-filled syringe -- it's not the typical image most have for the abuse of performance-enhancing drugs. But as more within law enforcement get nabbed in steroid investigations nationwide, observers say that usage levels among police officers could rival the seediest patches of the pro sports landscape.
"It's a big problem, and from the number of cases, it's something we shouldn't ignore," Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman Lawrence Payne told AOL News. "It's not that we set out to target cops, but when we're in the middle of an active investigation into steroids, there have been quite a few cases that have led back to police officers."

The pace of investigations into steroid use in the police ranks has picked up in recent months:
  • A former police officer in Canby, Ore., who allegedly took delivery of some steroids while on duty pleaded guilty in February to purchasing steroids.
  • An officer in South Bend, Ind., pleaded no contest in March to selling steroids.
  • A Cleveland police officer was sentenced to a year in prison and five years of supervised release in April after he was found guilty of illegally purchasing steroids.
  • A dealer in Paw Paw, Mich., allegedly told authorities that he supplied "several police officers" with steroids, which led one Kalamazoo officer to resign in May.

U.S. apologizes for 1940s medical experiments on Guatemalans injected with STDs

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today apologized for "abhorrent" and "clearly unethical" medical experiments in the 1940s in which U.S. Public Health Service doctors injected Guatemalan patients with syphilis and gonorrhea without their knowledge to study the effect of venereal disease.
Webmaster's Commentary: 
So how do you know what is on those vaccinations being handed out free of charge? The US birth rate is way down, the lowest in a decade. It is being blamed on the recession by ABCNNBBCBS, but don't forget that the recent round of "When Pigs Fly" vaccinations contained polysorbate 80, which is known to interfere with reproduction.

Horrific medical tests of past raise concerns for today
October 1, 2010, MSNBC
The astounding revelation that U.S. medical researchers intentionally gave Guatemalans gonorrhea and syphilis more than 60 years ago is so horrifying that we want to believe that what happened then could never happen today. A report from the United States Department of Health and Human Services noted that roughly 80 percent of drug approvals in 2008 were based in part on data from outside the U.S. Susan Reverby, a distinguished historian at Wellesley College in Massachusetts, has ... long researched the infamous Tuskegee Syphilis Study, the experiment where poor, black men in rural Alabama were deliberately left untreated for syphilis by government researchers. The study, somehow, was allowed to run from 1932 to 1972. More recently, Reverby came across documents that showed that Dr. John C. Cutler, a physician who would later be one of the researchers involved in the Tuskegee study, was involved in a completely unethical research study much earlier in Guatemala. Cutler, who went to his grave defending the Tuskegee experiment, directly inoculated unknowing prisoners in Guatemala with syphilis and also encouraged them to have sex with diseased prostitutes for his research from 1946-48. His work was sponsored by lauded organizations such as the United States Public Health Service, the National Institutes of Health with collaboration of the Pan American Health Sanitary Bureau (now the Pan American Health Organization), and the Guatemalan government.

U.S. Law Allows Testing of Chemicals and Biological Agents on "Civilian Population"


(a) PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES.—The Secretary of Defense may not conduct (directly or by contract)
(1) any test or experiment involving the use of a chemical agent or biological agent on a civilian population; or
(2) any other testing of a chemical agent or biological agent on human subjects.

(b) EXCEPTIONS.—Subject to subsections (c), (d), and (e), the prohibition in subsection (a) does not apply to a test or experiment carried out for any of the following purposes:

Radiation Experiments on Black People Left Holes in their Heads – Warning Graphic Video

In this unbelievable video, an elderly man tells a story about unknown radiation experiments that started when he was five-years old. As a result, he has a hole in his head to this day. In a Smith Leonard Production, the story is going to be told about what happened to these people and why most of us never knew anything about it.
Source: This video shows the shocking experimentation on African-Americans with radiation.

Shocking as it may seem, U.S. government doctors once thought it was fine to experiment on disabled people and prison inmates. Such experiments included a Yale University giving hepatitis to mental patients in Connecticut, squirting a pandemic flu virus up the noses of prisoners in Maryland, and injecting cancer cells into chronically ill people at a New York hospital.
Much of this horrific history is 40 to 80 years old, but it is the backdrop for a meeting in Washington this week by a presidential bioethics commission. The meeting was triggered by the government's apology last fall for federal doctors infecting prisoners and mental patients in Guatemala with syphilis 65 years ago.

Guatemalan STD medical experiments were just one crime in a long history of medical-government collusion to use humans as guinea pigs

This wasn't some bizarre, rare event. It was a reflection of the way the U.S. government has consistently conspired with the medical industry to test drugs on innocent victims and find out what happens.

A timeline of medical experiments on humans

Below, I've reprinted a timeline of human medical experiments that we first put together here on NaturalNews several years ago. This is just a partial list, by the way: There are more experiments that were conducted in secret and were never documented.

As you'll see here, the experiment on Guatemalans just barely begins to paint the full picture of just how many human beings have been killed, poisoned, maimed or otherwise had their lives destroyed by criminal medical experiments carried out in the name of "medical science."

Many of these experiments involve organizations whose names you would instantly recognize: Merck, the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, the Sloan-Kettering Institute, the National Institutes of Health, Massachusetts General Hospital and many more. This is like a Who's Who of the pharmaceutical industry, and they were all involved in using human beings as guinea pigs to conduct medical experiments.

And as you'll see below, the Guatemalan experiment isn't even the most grotesque or disturbing.

Note: Below is only a partial list of human medical experiments we've documented here on NaturalNews. See the full list here: http://www.naturalnews.com/022383_r...

(1845 - 1849)

J. Marion Sims, later hailed as the "father of gynecology," performs medical experiments on enslaved African women without anesthesia. These women would usually die of infection soon after surgery. Based on his belief that the movement of newborns' skull bones during protracted births causes trismus, he also uses a shoemaker's awl, a pointed tool shoemakers use to make holes in leather, to practice moving the skull bones of babies born to enslaved mothers (Brinker).


New York pediatrician Henry Heiman infects a 4-year-old boy whom he calls "an idiot with chronic epilepsy" with gonorrhea as part of a medical experiment ("Human Experimentation: Before the Nazi Era and After").


Dr. Arthur Wentworth turns 29 children at Boston's Children's Hospital into human guinea pigs when he performs spinal taps on them, just to test whether the procedure is harmful (Sharav).


Harvard professor Dr. Richard Strong infects prisoners in the Philippines with cholera to study the disease; 13 of them die. He compensates survivors with cigars and cigarettes. During the Nuremberg Trials, Nazi doctors cite this study to justify their own medical experiments (Greger, Sharav).


Dr. Hideyo Noguchi of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research publishes data on injecting an inactive syphilis preparation into the skin of 146 hospital patients and normal children in an attempt to develop a skin test for syphilis. Later, in 1913, several of these children's parents sue Dr. Noguchi for allegedly infecting their children with syphilis ("Reviews and Notes: History of Medicine: Subjected to Science: Human Experimentation in America before the Second World War").


Medical experimenters "test" 15 children at the children's home St. Vincent's House in Philadelphia with tuberculin, resulting in permanent blindness in some of the children. Though the Pennsylvania House of Representatives records the incident, the researchers are not punished for the experiments ("Human Experimentation: Before the Nazi Era and After").


Dr. Joseph Goldberger, under order of the U.S. Public Health Office, produces Pellagra, a debilitating disease that affects the central nervous system, in 12 Mississippi inmates to try to find a cure for the disease. One test subject later says that he had been through "a thousand hells." In 1935, after millions die from the disease, the director of the U.S Public Health Office would finally admit that officials had known that it was caused by a niacin deficiency for some time, but did nothing about it because it mostly affected poor African-Americans. During the Nuremberg Trials, Nazi doctors used this study to try to justify their medical experiments on concentration camp inmates (Greger; Cockburn and St. Clair, eds.).


(1932-1972) The U.S. Public Health Service in Tuskegee, Ala. diagnoses 400 poor, black sharecroppers with syphilis but never tells them of their illness nor treats them; instead researchers use the men as human guinea pigs to follow the symptoms and progression of the disease. They all eventually die from syphilis and their families are never told that they could have been treated (Goliszek, University of Virginia Health System Health Sciences Library).


In order to test his theory on the roots of stuttering, prominent speech pathologist Dr. Wendell Johnson performs his famous "Monster Experiment" on 22 children at the Iowa Soldiers' Orphans' Home in Davenport. Dr. Johnson and his graduate students put the children under intense psychological pressure, causing them to switch from speaking normally to stuttering heavily. At the time, some of the students reportedly warn Dr. Johnson that, "in the aftermath of World War II, observers might draw comparisons to Nazi experiments on human subjects, which could destroy his career" (Alliance for Human Research Protection).


Dr. William C. Black infects a 12-month-old baby with herpes as part of a medical experiment. At the time, the editor of the Journal of Experimental Medicine, Francis Payton Rous, calls it "an abuse of power, an infringement of the rights of an individual, and not excusable because the illness which followed had implications for science" (Sharav).

An article in a 1941 issue of Archives of Pediatrics describes medical studies of the severe gum disease Vincent's angina in which doctors transmit the disease from sick children to healthy children with oral swabs (Goliszek).

Researchers give 800 poverty-stricken pregnant women at a Vanderbilt University prenatal clinic "cocktails" including radioactive iron in order to determine the iron requirements of pregnant women (Pacchioli).


The Chemical Warfare Service begins mustard gas and lewisite experiments on 4,000 members of the U.S. military. Some test subjects don't realize they are volunteering for chemical exposure experiments, like 17-year-old Nathan Schnurman, who in 1944 thinks he is only volunteering to test "U.S. Navy summer clothes" (Goliszek).

Merck Pharmaceuticals President George Merck is named director of the War Research Service (WRS), an agency designed to oversee the establishment of a biological warfare program (Goliszek).

(1944 - 1946) A captain in the medical corps addresses an April 1944 memo to Col. Stanford Warren, head of the Manhattan Project's Medical Section, expressing his concerns about atom bomb component fluoride's central nervous system (CNS) effects and asking for animal research to be done to determine the extent of these effects: "Clinical evidence suggests that uranium hexafluoride may have a rather marked central nervous system effect ... It seems most likely that the F [code for fluoride] component rather than the T [code for uranium] is the causative factor ... Since work with these compounds is essential, it will be necessary to know in advance what mental effects may occur after exposure." The following year, the Manhattan Project would begin human-based studies on fluoride's effects (Griffiths and Bryson).

The Manhattan Project medical team, led by the now infamous University of Rochester radiologist Col. Safford Warren, injects plutonium into patients at the University's teaching hospital, Strong Memorial (Burton Report).


Continuing the Manhattan Project, researchers inject plutonium into three patients at the University of Chicago's Billings Hospital (Sharav).

The U.S. State Department, Army intelligence and the CIA begin Operation Paperclip, offering Nazi scientists immunity and secret identities in exchange for work on top-secret government projects on aerodynamics and chemical warfare medicine in the United States ("Project Paperclip").

(1945 - 1955) In Newburgh, N.Y., researchers linked to the Manhattan Project begin the most extensive American study ever done on the health effects of fluoridating public drinking water (Griffiths and Bryson).


Continuing the Newburg study of 1945, the Manhattan Project commissions the University of Rochester to study fluoride's effects on animals and humans in a project codenamed "Program F." With the help of the New York State Health Department, Program F researchers secretly collect and analyze blood and tissue samples from Newburg residents. The studies are sponsored by the Atomic Energy Commission and take place at the University of Rochester Medical Center's Strong Memorial Hospital (Griffiths and Bryson).

(1946 - 1947) University of Rochester researchers inject four male and two female human test subjects with uranium-234 and uranium-235 in dosages ranging from 6.4 to 70.7 micrograms per one kilogram of body weight in order to study how much uranium they could tolerate before their kidneys become damaged (Goliszek).

Six male employees of a Chicago metallurgical laboratory are given water contaminated with plutonium-239 to drink so that researchers can learn how plutonium is absorbed into the digestive tract (Goliszek).

Researchers begin using patients in VA hospitals as test subjects for human medical experiments, cleverly worded as "investigations" or "observations" in medical study reports to avoid negative connotations and bad publicity (Sharav).

The American public finally learns of the biowarfare experiments being done at Fort Detrick from a report released by the War Department (Goliszek).


Col. E.E. Kirkpatrick of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) issues a top-secret document (707075) dated Jan. 8. In it, he writes that "certain radioactive substances are being prepared for intravenous administration to human subjects as a part of the work of the contract" (Goliszek).

A secret AEC document dated April 17 reads, "It is desired that no document be released which refers to experiments with humans that might have an adverse reaction on public opinion or result in legal suits," revealing that the U.S. government was aware of the health risks its nuclear tests posed to military personnel conducting the tests or nearby civilians (Goliszek).

The CIA begins studying LSD's potential as a weapon by using military and civilian test subjects for experiments without their consent or even knowledge. Eventually, these LSD studies will evolve into the MKULTRA program in 1953 (Sharav).

(1947 - 1953) The U.S. Navy begins Project Chatter to identify and test so-called "truth serums," such as those used by the Soviet Union to interrogate spies. Mescaline and the central nervous system depressant scopolamine are among the many drugs tested on human subjects (Goliszek).


Based on the secret studies performed on Newburgh, N.Y. residents beginning in 1945, Project F researchers publish a report in the August 1948 edition of the Journal of the American Dental Association, detailing fluoride's health dangers. The U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) quickly censors it for "national security" reasons (Griffiths and Bryson).


(1950 - 1953) The U.S. Army releases chemical clouds over six American and Canadian cities. Residents in Winnipeg, Canada, where a highly toxic chemical called cadmium is dropped, subsequently experience high rates of respiratory illnesses (Cockburn and St. Clair, eds.).

In order to determine how susceptible an American city could be to biological attack, the U.S. Navy sprays a cloud of Bacillus globigii bacteria from ships over the San Francisco shoreline. According to monitoring devices situated throughout the city to test the extent of infection, the eight thousand residents of San Francisco inhale five thousand or more bacteria particles, many becoming sick with pneumonia-like symptoms (Goliszek).

Dr. Joseph Strokes of the University of Pennsylvania infects 200 female prisoners with viral hepatitis to study the disease (Sharav).

Doctors at the Cleveland City Hospital study changes in cerebral blood flow by injecting test subjects with spinal anesthesia, inserting needles in their jugular veins and brachial arteries, tilting their heads down and, after massive blood loss causes paralysis and fainting, measuring their blood pressure. They often perform this experiment multiple times on the same subject (Goliszek).

Dr. D. Ewen Cameron, later of MKULTRA infamy due to his 1957 to1964 experiments on Canadians, publishes an article in the British Journal of Physical Medicine, in which he describes experiments that entail forcing schizophrenic patients at Manitoba's Brandon Mental Hospital to lie naked under 15- to 200-watt red lamps for up to eight hours per day. His other experiments include placing mental patients in an electric cage that overheats their internal body temperatures to 103 degrees Fahrenheit, and inducing comas by giving patients large injections of insulin (Goliszek).


The U.S. Army secretly contaminates the Norfolk Naval Supply Center in Virginia and Washington, D.C.'s National Airport with a strain of bacteria chosen because African-Americans were believed to be more susceptible to it than Caucasians. The experiment causes food poisoning, respiratory problems and blood poisoning (Cockburn and St. Clair, eds.).

(1951 - 1956) Under contract with the Air Force's School of Aviation Medicine (SAM), the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston begins studying the effects of radiation on cancer patients -- many of them members of minority groups or indigents, according to sources -- in order to determine both radiation's ability to treat cancer and the possible long-term radiation effects of pilots flying nuclear-powered planes. The study lasts until 1956, involving 263 cancer patients. Beginning in 1953, the subjects are required to sign a waiver form, but it still does not meet the informed consent guidelines established by the Wilson memo released that year. The TBI studies themselves would continue at four different institutions -- Baylor University College of Medicine, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research, the U.S. Naval Hospital in Bethesda and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine -- until 1971 (U.S. Department of Energy, Goliszek).

American, Canadian and British military and intelligence officials gather a small group of eminent psychologists to a secret meeting at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Montreal about Communist "thought-control techniques." They proposed a top-secret research program on behavior modification -- involving testing drugs, hypnosis, electroshock and lobotomies on humans (Barker).


At the famous Sloan-Kettering Institute, Chester M. Southam injects live cancer cells into prisoners at the Ohio State Prison to study the progression of the disease. Half of the prisoners in this National Institutes of Health-sponsored (NIH) study are black, awakening racial suspicions stemming from Tuskegee, which was also an NIH-sponsored study (Merritte, et al.).

(1953 - 1974) The U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) sponsors iodine studies at the University of Iowa. In the first study, researchers give pregnant women 100 to 200 microcuries of iodine-131 and then study the women's aborted embryos in order to learn at what stage and to what extent radioactive iodine crosses the placental barrier. In the second study, researchers give 12 male and 13 female newborns under 36 hours old and weighing between 5.5 and 8.5 pounds iodine-131 either orally or via intramuscular injection, later measuring the concentration of iodine in the newborns' thyroid glands (Goliszek).

As part of an AEC study, researchers feed 28 healthy infants at the University of Nebraska College of Medicine iodine-131 through a gastric tube and then test concentration of iodine in the infants' thyroid glands 24 hours later (Goliszek).

(1953 - 1957) Eleven patients at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston are injected with uranium as part of the Manhattan Project (Sharav).

In an AEC-sponsored study at the University of Tennessee, researchers inject healthy two- to three-day-old newborns with approximately 60 rads of iodine-131 (Goliszek).

Newborn Daniel Burton becomes blind when physicians at Brooklyn Doctors Hospital perform an experimental high oxygen treatment for Retrolental Fibroplasia, a retinal disorder affecting premature infants, on him and other premature babies. The physicians perform the experimental treatment despite earlier studies showing that high oxygen levels cause blindness. Testimony in Burton v. Brooklyn Doctors Hospital (452 N.Y.S.2d875) later reveals that researchers continued to give Burton and other infants excess oxygen even after their eyes had swelled to dangerous levels (Goliszek, Sharav).

A 1953 article in Clinical Science describes a medical experiment in which researchers purposely blister the abdomens of 41 children, ranging in age from eight to 14, with cantharide in order to study how severely the substance irritates the skin (Goliszek).

The AEC performs a series of field tests known as "Green Run," dropping radiodine 131 and xenon 133 over the Hanford, Wash. site -- 500,000 acres encompassing three small towns (Hanford, White Bluffs and Richland) along the Columbia River (Sharav).

In an AEC-sponsored study to learn whether radioactive iodine affects premature babies differently from full-term babies, researchers at Harper Hospital in Detroit give oral doses of iodine-131 to 65 premature and full-term infants weighing between 2.1 and 5.5 pounds (Goliszek).

(1955 - 1957) In order to learn how cold weather affects human physiology, researchers give a total of 200 doses of iodine-131, a radioactive tracer that concentrates almost immediately in the thyroid gland, to 85 healthy Eskimos and 17 Athapascan Indians living in Alaska. They study the tracer within the body by blood, thyroid tissue, urine and saliva samples from the test subjects. Due to the language barrier, no one tells the test subjects what is being done to them, so there is no informed consent (Goliszek).

(1956 - 1957) U.S. Army covert biological weapons researchers release mosquitoes infected with yellow fever and dengue fever over Savannah, Ga., and Avon Park, Fla., to test the insects' ability to carry disease. After each test, Army agents pose as public health officials to test victims for effects and take pictures of the unwitting test subjects. These experiments result in a high incidence of fevers, respiratory distress, stillbirths, encephalitis and typhoid among the two cities' residents, as well as several deaths (Cockburn and St. Clair, eds.).


The U.S. military conducts Operation Plumbbob at the Nevada Test Site, 65 miles northwest of Las Vegas. Operation Pumbbob consists of 29 nuclear detonations, eventually creating radiation expected to result in a total 32,000 cases of thyroid cancer among civilians in the area. Around 18,000 members of the U.S. military participate in Operation Pumbbob's Desert Rock VII and VIII, which are designed to see how the average foot soldier physiologically and mentally responds to a nuclear battlefield ("Operation Plumbbob", Goliszek).

(1957 - 1964) As part of MKULTRA, the CIA pays McGill University Department of Psychiatry founder Dr. D. Ewen Cameron $69,000 to perform LSD studies and potentially lethal experiments on Canadians being treated for minor disorders like post-partum depression and anxiety at the Allan Memorial Institute, which houses the Psychiatry Department of the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal. The CIA encourages Dr. Cameron to fully explore his "psychic driving" concept of correcting madness through completely erasing one's memory and rewriting the psyche. These "driving" experiments involve putting human test subjects into drug-, electroshock- and sensory deprivation-induced vegetative states for up to three months, and then playing tape loops of noise or simple repetitive statements for weeks or months in order to "rewrite" the "erased" psyche. Dr. Cameron also gives human test subjects paralytic drugs and electroconvulsive therapy 30 to 40 times, as part of his experiments. Most of Dr. Cameron's test subjects suffer permanent damage as a result of his work (Goliszek, "Donald Ewan Cameron").

In order to study how blood flows through children's brains, researchers at Children's Hospital in Philadelphia perform the following experiment on healthy children, ranging in age from three to 11: They insert needles into each child's femoral artery (thigh) and jugular vein (neck), bringing the blood down from the brain. Then, they force each child to inhale a special gas through a facemask. In their subsequent Journal of Clinical Investigation article on this study, the researchers note that, in order to perform the experiment, they had to restrain some of the child test subjects by bandaging them to boards (Goliszek).


The U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) drops radioactive materials over Point Hope, Alaska, home to the Inupiats, in a field test known under the codename "Project Chariot" (Sharav).


In response to the Nuremberg Trials, Yale psychologist Stanley Milgram begins his famous Obedience to Authority Study in order to answer his question "Could it be that (Adolf) Eichmann and his million accomplices in the Holocaust were just following orders? Could we call them all accomplices?" Male test subjects, ranging in age from 20 to 40 and coming from all education backgrounds, are told to give "learners" electric shocks for every wrong answer the learners give in response to word pair questions. In reality, the learners are actors and are not receiving electric shocks, but what matters is that the test subjects do not know that. Astoundingly, they keep on following orders and continue to administer increasingly high levels of "shocks," even after the actor learners show obvious physical pain ("Milgram Experiment").


Researchers at the Laurel Children's Center in Maryland test experimental acne antibiotics on children and continue their tests even after half of the young test subjects develop severe liver damage because of the experimental medication (Goliszek).

The FDA begins requiring that a new pharmaceutical undergo three human clinical trials before it will approve it. From 1962 to 1980, pharmaceutical companies satisfy this requirement by running Phase I trials, which determine a drug's toxicity, on prison inmates, giving them small amounts of cash for compensation (Sharav).


Chester M. Southam, who injected Ohio State Prison inmates with live cancer cells in 1952, performs the same procedure on 22 senile, African-American female patients at the Brooklyn Jewish Chronic Disease Hospital in order to watch their immunological response. Southam tells the patients that they are receiving "some cells," but leaves out the fact that they are cancer cells. He claims he doesn't obtain informed consent from the patients because he does not want to frighten them by telling them what he is doing, but he nevertheless temporarily loses his medical license because of it. Ironically, he eventually becomes president of the American Cancer Society (Greger, Merritte, et al.).

Researchers at the University of Washington directly irradiate the testes of 232 prison inmates in order to determine radiation's effects on testicular function. When these inmates later leave prison and have children, at least four have babies born with birth defects. The exact number is unknown because researchers never follow up on the men to see the long-term effects of their experiment (Goliszek).

(1963 - 1966) New York University researcher Saul Krugman promises parents with mentally disabled children definite enrollment into the Willowbrook State School in Staten Island, N.Y., a resident mental institution for mentally retarded children, in exchange for their signatures on a consent form for procedures presented as "vaccinations." In reality, the procedures involve deliberately infecting children with viral hepatitis by feeding them an extract made from the feces of infected patients, so that Krugman can study the course of viral hepatitis as well the effectiveness of a hepatitis vaccine (Hammer Breslow).

(1963 - 1971) Leading endocrinologist Dr. Carl Heller gives 67 prison inmates at Oregon State Prison in Salem $5 per month and $25 per testicular tissue biopsy in compensation for allowing him to perform irradiation experiments on their testes. If they receive vasectomies at the end of the study, the prisoners are given an extra $100 (Sharav, Goliszek).

Researchers inject a genetic compound called radioactive thymidine into the testicles of more than 100 Oregon State Penitentiary inmates to learn whether sperm production is affected by exposure to steroid hormones (Greger).

In a study published in Pediatrics, researchers at the University of California's Department of Pediatrics use 113 newborns ranging in age from one hour to three days old in a series of experiments used to study changes in blood pressure and blood flow. In one study, doctors insert a catheter through the newborns' umbilical arteries and into their aortas and then immerse the newborns' feet in ice water while recording aortic pressure. In another experiment, doctors strap 50 newborns to a circumcision board, tilt the table so that all the blood rushes to their heads and then measure their blood pressure (Goliszek).

(1964 - 1967) The Dow Chemical Company pays Professor Kligman $10,000 to learn how dioxin -- a highly toxic, carcinogenic component of Agent Orange -- and other herbicides affect human skin because workers at the chemical plant have been developing an acne-like condition called Chloracne and the company would like to know whether the chemicals they are handling are to blame. As part of the study, Professor Kligman applies roughly the amount of dioxin Dow employees are exposed to on the skin 60 prisoners, and is disappointed when the prisoners show no symptoms of Chloracne. In 1980 and 1981, the human guinea pigs used in this study would begin suing Professor Kligman for complications including lupus and psychological damage (Kaye).

The U.S. Government has been caught conducting an insane amount of vile, inhumane and grisly experiments on humans without their consent and often without their knowledge.

No Regard for Human Life D.C. Court Rules That U.S. Officials Can Torture and Murder “Enemy Combatants,” Cover It Up, and Get Away With It


Until those living in this country can find a way to stop the government and the courts from committing and rationalizing torture and killings, and until we can turn popular feeling firmly towards supporting accountability for the grave abuses committed by the state, the admiral’s phrase should be applied to us: "They have no regard for human life."
On September 28, Judge Ellen Huvelle affirmed the D.C. District Court’s decision to dismiss Al-Zahrani v. Rumsfeld, a civil lawsuit brought by the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) and co-counsel concerning three men who died in detention at Guantánamo in June 2006. Her decision came despite new evidence from four soldiers stationed at the base, which strongly suggests the three men were murdered at a secret site at Guantánamo and that the government worked hard to cover up the true cause and circumstances of the deaths. The government reported the three men committed suicide by hanging themselves in their cells.
The court acknowledged that the allegations were "disturbing," but dismissed the case by citing national security considerations and possible "embarrassment" to the government. It also made the incredible assertion that even if every allegation of torture and homicide against U.S. officials is entirely true, the defendants’ conduct was within their permissible scope of employment. The court also said that only Congress can judge whether a mechanism for accountability should exist for the families of the deceased, and that the Military Commissions Act of 2006 still deprives the courts of jurisdiction over the treatment of any foreigners designated as "enemy combatants." In other words, after the government arbitrarily labels a foreign citizen as an "enemy combatant," it can torture or kill that individual, and then cover it up, without any legal accountability. If this weren’t callous enough, note that the court also held that "qualified immunity" protects government officials from accountability for the deaths because in 2006 it was not clear whether the Constitution applied in the island-prison of Guantánamo (where the U.S. is the only governing authority), and government officials could therefore not have known whether or not torture and killings violated the law.

Concerns Continue to Mount on U.S. Bioweapons Violations

The Center for Disease Control has declined to confirm or deny allegations that the United States government is stockpiling biological and/or chemical weapons at Sierra Army Depot, a military base in Northern California.

The Department of Homeland Security is openly admitting that there is a 70% chance that a disease will escape their new infectious disease research laboratory. This is outrageous! What is being done to decrease the chance?
Homeland Securities stated mission is the protection of the American homeland yet they are creating a center that has a 70% chance of unleashing a deadly disease on the American people!
The facility’s construction is expected to cost between $500 million and $700 million. The 520,000-square-foot center, slated to begin construction in 2012, would study highly infectious animal-borne pathogens, some of which could pose a threat to humans. It would replace the Plum Island Disease Center located near Long Island, New York, which was established in 1937.
The new site would also be the world’s third Biosafety-Level 4 Pathogen laboratory to work with large animals. The other two such facilities are in Australia and Canada.
The council calculated that based on estimates in the DHSassessment, which wrapped up in June, that there is a nearly 70 percent chance a disease would escape the laboratory during its planned 50-year operational lifespan. The DHS report estimated the economic losses from a postulated foot-and-mouth disease outbreak at $9 billion to $50 billion.

(NaturalNews) Scientists at British biotechnology giant Oxitec recently developed a genetically-modified (GM) mosquito that, apart from a specific chemical antibiotic, is unable to successfully repopulate. And the company recently released millions of these GM mosquitoes in the Cayman Islands to see what would happen -- and they did so without proper approval or announcement -- prompting outrage by experts and the public over the unknown consequences of conducting such an irresponsible experiment.

PETALING JAYA: Some 22 Malaysian and regional non-governmental organisations (NGO) doubtful about the safety and effectiveness of the genetically modified (GM) male mosquitoes are urging the government to have a public debate before releasing the insect into the environment.
In its letter to the Health Ministry, Natural Resources and Environment Ministry, National Biosafety Board (NBB), the Institute of Medical Research (IMR) and Genetic Modification Advisory Committee (GMAC), the NGOs said it was vital to engage the public on the field experiment first as it affects public health and environment.

While it is generally clear, even to the relatively uninformed, that government and corporations have become one and the same, the extent to which this is the case is still largely unknown amongst the general public.
Likewise, the extent to which this merger is affecting public health is also not widely known. In recent years (aside from their other horrific projects) government agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), think tanks, and corporations have all banded together to combine two of the biggest scourges on the environment and human health -- genetic modification and vaccines -- into one entity . . .

The more I think about this, the less I like it. What happens if these frankosquitos are loaded up with the modern equivalent of the 1976 Swine Flu vaccine that killed 50 times as many people as the flu itself? I 1976 you can tell the doctors to put away their needles, but there is no way to recall those flying hypodermics once they are released, and worse, breeding.
What a terrible de-population weapon this would make!

Chitra Chauhan, 33, of Tampa was pronounced dead at University Community Hospital about 10:30 p.m., Temple Terrace police reported.
The discovery of the toxic substance also prompted evacuation of 75 to 100 guests at the Extended Stay America hotel on Morris Bridge Road, where Chauhan had taken a room.

I have to wonder if our "suicided" mosquito expert was linked to this little experiment, in which genetically modified mosquitoes able to carry Dengue Fever were intentionally released . It seems the mosquitoes able to carry Dengue in the Caymans can also carry Cholera!
It is rather odd that after all the money that was donated to help the Haitians, that as soon as they start asking where that money actually is, they get hit with a cholera epidemic!
As for Chitra Chauhan, this was a young woman with a great career, a husband, and a three-year old daughter. Nobody seems to have a reason why she would go to a hotel and commit suicide with cynanide. Moreover, as a molecular biologist, she would have to know that death by cyanide is extremely painful. Even with the massive dose administered for prison executions, it can take anywhere from 2 to 9 minutes merely to lose consciousness.

Webmaster's Commentary: 
Does the woman at the top look like a potential suicide to you?

Chitra Chauhan, 33. Died Nov. 15 was found dead in an apparent suicide by cyanide at a Temple Terrace hotel, police said. Chauhan left a suicide note saying she used cyanide. Hazmat team officials said the cyanide was found only in granular form, meaning it was not considered dangerous outside of the room it was found in. The chemical is considered more dangerous in a liquid or gas form. Potassium Cyanide, the apparent cause of death, is a chemical commonly used by universities in teaching chemistry and conducting research, but it was not used in the research projects she was working on. Chauhan, a molecular biologist, was a post-doctoral researcher in the Global Health department in the College of Public Health. She earned her doctorate from the Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology in New Delhi, India, in 2005, then studied mosquitoes and disease transmission at the University of Notre Dame.


On the 20th of January 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said there have been 36 confirmed reports of seizures this flu season in children ages 6 months through 2 years in the United States.

The vaccine’s manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, issued a statement emphasizing that no clear link has been established between the flu shot and the seizures and that the cases may be coincidental...


New British Medical Journal Report Questions Legitimacy of H1N1 Pandemic


WHO director Margaret Chan admitting last year's flu pandemic was "not as serious as anticipated"
I can't read anything about these sudden flu outbreaks without thinking they're staged. Good thing is I'm not alone. Last year's hoax was fully exposed, including documented links to big Pharma collusion, and overall flu levels were reportedly even lower than normal.
The situation now is, they blew this whole scam so badly last year, I'm afraid they're going to come out with much more deadly strains to make their point and push their program through.

They still have the sleeping majority of the world's masses under their pathetic mind control scheme so they know it will eventually work. And what better time than during what's projected to be the most severe winter Europe's had in centuries.

Here's from today's UK Independent:
Doctors shocked by spread of swine flu – and its severity
H1N1 virus returns, already claiming lives of 10 British adults with early signs that illness has spread to other European countries
Starts in pretty strong, wouldn't you say? And "oh my God, not only are doctors shocked, but the health editor is reporting this! Oh my! It must be true! If he's alarmed, we should ALL be alarmed!"

Health officials have ordered doctors to shelve a vaccination programme which was under way to protect children from swine flu.
Laura Donnelly
Doctors in north-west England began giving jabs to healthy schoolchildren earlier this month, after senior medics decided that stocks of vaccine should be used to prevent the spread of disease among the young...

A swine flu pandemic is sweeping through Britain despite the fact that 70 percent of Britain's over-65 population was vaccinated against swine flu last year. This year, that number is nearly the same -- 68.5% -- but flu vaccine proponents insist that until everyone is vaccinated, the flu will continue to infect people.
What these vaccine advocates absolutely will not admit, however, is how many of those who are sick with the flu this year also got vaccinated last year. This little detail is left out of every mainstream media report on vaccines and the flu. They simply refuse to mention this all-important number, leaving readers to leap to the incorrect conclusion that only those who were not vaccinated get sick with the flu.

A 68-year-old UK grandmother named Eleanor Carruthers has died from the swine flu. Importantly, she was given the swine flu vaccine shot several months ago and was told the shot would offer her absolute protection from the flu...

Swine flu vaccine left over from the winter 2009/2010 vacination campaign expires these days and therefore has to be disposed. Due to the content of mercury added as Thimerosal (also known as Thiomersal) to most of the vaccines that depending on the manufacturer can reach 25-50 ppm in the vaccine, the left overs have to be handled as "hazardous waste".

The government is considering using leftover vaccine from the swine flu pandemic to plug the shortfall in jabs this winter, the prime minister says.

Like a medical house of cards in an earthquake, the seasonal flu vaccine mythology is collapsing right before our eyes. After months of urging everyone to get vaccinated (and blaming non-vaccinated people for skipping out on their "public health obligation"), UK health authorities announced last week that "healthy people" were to blame for causing a vaccine shortage that they claim now threatens the lives of sick children (http://www.naturalnews.com/030977_v...).
As part of this ruse, they even suggested that pharmacies should be banned from selling flu vaccines to healthy people, explaining that healthy people didn't really need them anyway.

Myths and Facts: Study Verifies That There Is No Value In Any Flu Vaccine
A remarkable study published in the Cochrane Library found no evidence of benefit for influenza vaccinations and also noted that the vast majority of trials were inadequate.
The authors stated that the only ones showing benefit were industry-funded. They also pointed out that the industry-funded studies were more likely to be published in the most prestigious journals...and one more thing: They found cases of severe harm caused by the vaccines, in spite of inadequate reporting of adverse effects.
The study, "Vaccines for preventing influenza in healthy adults", is damning of the entire pharmaceutical industry and its minions, the drug testing industry and the medical system that relies on them.

They found no evidence that vaccination prevents viral transmission! (There goes the whole herd immunity argument!) They also found no evidence that they prevent complications, either.


A child of twelve was charged with ‘threatening behaviour’ at his school in Bowmanville, East of Toronto last week. The arrest happened when the boy (who cannot be named for legal reasons) threw a tantrum refusing the Hepatitis B vaccine. The National Post reported (http://news.nationalpost.com/2010…) that police were brought into Ross Tilley Public School because the boy had threatened to damage the school. Unfortunately, the report failed to give the reason why the child was refusing the vaccine or what made him so angry.
Webmaster's Commentary: 
The mandated 1976 Swine Flu Vaccination killed more people than the flu did. Frankly, everyone involved with that program should have been charged with murder. But at the very least, people have an inherent right to decide what to do with their own bodies. The global dictatorship wants you to think otherwise (which is one reason for the TSA grope and STD fest at the airports), but really; do you trust the government with a needle stuck in your arm?

Among those who recently died while taking AstraZeneca's blockbuster drug Seroquel are Marine corporals Andrew White and Chad Oligschlaeger. Both were being given multiple drugs, including Seroquel, for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Both died in their sleep.

Harvard scientists reverse the ageing process in mice – now for humans
November 28, 2010, The Guardian (One of the UK's leading newspapers)
Scientists claim to be a step closer to reversing the ageing process after rejuvenating worn out organs in elderly mice. The experimental treatment developed by researchers at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, turned weak and feeble old mice into healthy animals by regenerating their aged bodies. The surprise recovery of the animals has raised hopes among scientists that it may be possible to achieve a similar feat in humans – or at least to slow down the ageing process. "What we saw in these animals was not a slowing down or stabilisation of the ageing process. We saw a dramatic reversal – and that was unexpected," said Ronald DePinho, who led the study, which was published in the journal Nature. The Harvard group focused on a process called telomere shortening. Most cells in the body contain 23 pairs of chromosomes, which carry our DNA. At the ends of each chromosome is a protective cap called a telomere. Each time a cell divides, the telomeres are snipped shorter, until eventually they stop working and the cell dies or goes into a suspended state called "senescence". The process is behind much of the wear and tear associated with ageing. At Harvard, they bred genetically manipulated mice that lacked an enzyme called telomerase that stops telomeres getting shorter. When DePinho gave the mice injections to reactivate the enzyme, it repaired the damaged tissues and reversed the signs of ageing.

Prop. 19, Monsanto, and GMO Terminator Cannabis

The object is to patent up every possible combination of cannabinoids with efficacy for every possible disease they can treat, and every possible genetic sequence! Once ready to make the move, they will shut down every medical cannabis grower for patent fraud”
“Monsanto terminator technology is being applied to Cannabis by (David Watson) at Hortapharm in Holland.”
Monsanto and the Drug Policy Alliance are not the only entities leading the charge to regulate Cannabis through genetic engineering. As published in the September 2009 issue of the Journal of Experimental Botany, Researchers from the College of Biological Science of the University of Minnesota have identified the genes in the Cannabis plant that produce tetra-hydro-cannabinol (THC), claiming in a press release that it is “a first step toward engineering a drug-free Cannabis plant”. George Weiblen, an associate professor of plant biology and a co-author of the study, said “Cannabis genetics can contribute to better agriculture, medicine, and drug enforcement”.
George Weiblen conducts his research under a permit granted by the DEA to import Cannabis from outside of the U.S. The two sources from which these imports come from are the Kenex corporation based in Ontario Canada and the HortaPharm corporation based in Amsterdam. These two corporations are two of the very few entities which have acquired a DEA permit to import Cannabis into the United States. The history and role of these corporations illustrate the potential of Genetic Engineering in the global Cannabis market.

Kenex corporation initiated its research program on industrial hemp in 1995 in cooperation with Ridgetown College of University of Guelph in Ontario. A research license was granted by Health Canada to proceed with the program. The scope of the project was expanded in 1996 making it the largest hemp research project in Canada.

It is interesting to note that Kenex’s research program on hemp was initiated at the University of Guelph, which is also home to 24 ag-biotech research facilities, and is heavily funded by the ag-biotech industry, including research funds from Monsanto corporation, Bayor Incorporated, Dupont, Syngenta and Dow Chemical corporation to name a few.

The University of Guelph Impact Study in 2007 states:
“Multi-national companies like Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayor Crop Science, and Semex have set up in Guelph because of the ability to closely interact with research and the ease of access to human, capital, and government resources, as well as the ability to attract investment.”

The University of Guelph has recently genetically engineered and patented the genome of a pig, which they have trademarked the EnviroPig.

“The license gave Watson control over what researchers are allowed access to pedigreed seeds of predictable quality! The object is to patent up every possible combination of cannabinoids with efficacy for every possible disease they can treat, and every possible genetic sequence! Once ready to make the move, they will shut down every medical cannabis grower for patent fraud”

“Monsanto terminator technology is being applied to Cannabis by (David Watson) at Hortapharm in Holland.”

David Watson has stated “HortaPharm has built up over many years the most extensive ‘Living Library’ of Medicinal Cannabis varieties in the world”.
In July 1998, Speaking at the International Cannabinoid Research Society conference in Montpellier, Dr Geoffrey W Guy, Chairman of GW Pharmaceuticals, said that HortaPharm will provide GW with exclusive access to its entire range of cannabis varieties for the development of medicines. The worldwide rights acquired by GW for an undisclosed sum cover varieties grown to date with certain exceptions and all varieties to be bred in the future. Plant registrations arising from the Dutch breeding program will be owned by GW pharmaceutical.
Under the agreement GW Pharma will be responsible for the development of specific drug delivery technologies to administer the pharmaceutical grade medicinal cannabis. This work will include a vaporizer for which HortaPharm has a patent pending.

An article published by Cannabis Culture Magazine in May 2002, states:
“GW’s miracle pot may soon be among the first cannabis plants ever patented. Although some industrial hemp genetics have been copyrighted as intellectual property, Guy is seeking to register marijuana varietals distinguished by specific morphological characteristics, such as color, leaf size and shape, and smell.”

In an interview with Cannabis Culture Magazine, the Chairman of GW Pharma Dr. Geoffrey Guy said “We deserve to make a fair return on our investment, and that’s why we pursued patents for our plants, extracts, processes, and delivery devices.”
In 2009 in Canada, GW Pharma has succeeded in “artificially manipulating” and Patenting a “Novel Reference Cannabis Plant” with a “knock out gene” that uses “monogenic mutation” to “block the cannabinoid biosynthesis in Cannabis sativa”. This technology is being used to artificially engineer the levels of medicinal compounds in the plant.

In May of 2003, GW Pharma and Bayer Incorporated had reached a Marketing Agreement on Pioneering a New cannabis-based medicinal extract product called Sativex.
Bayer reportedly paid $60 Million to GW Pharma to obtain exclusive rights to market Sativex in the UK, And reportedly paid $14 Million for the marketing rights in Canada.

While corporations like Bayer and GW Pharma are building patent monopolies over Cannabis strains, processes and medicinal compounds, an ongoing propaganda campaign in the U.S. continues to serve their Cannabis monopoly interests.
For example, there are 60 different cannabinoids in the Cannabis plant. Many of which have been identified, genetically isolated and patented by both the U.S. government and other international companies for their medicinal properties.

According to newly released documents from GlaxoSmithKline, the pharmaceutical company often paid ghostwriters to pen medical studies, editorials and even a textbook that listed physicians as the authors.
The documents—some of which date back to late 1990s—were recently unsealed in litigation over a GlaxoSmithKline product. We saw them after they were attached to a letter released this week by a nonprofit watchdog group urging the National Institutes of Health to crack down on ghostwriting in medical academia. The documents and the letter by Project on Government Oversight together outline several examples of how a major drug company contributed to the funding, writing and approval of material published in medical journals and elsewhere.
Webmaster's Commentary: 
Unflipping believable, but this clearly demonstrates how the drug companies have acted to skirt regulations in such a way that everyone, from physician to patient, is convinced that prescription drugs are both safe and efficacious.


FDA now admits breast implants only last 10 years and have to be removed in all women

Reversing earlier statements that breast implants are completely safe and never have to be replaced, the Food and Drug Administration now says many women who have implants must have them removed or replaced within a decade.
According to the agency, new research data from a long-term study found that the implants should be examined every 10 years because they were at risk of rupturing, and that some are linked to a rare form of cancer.


Push to secretly approve GM corn in Pakistan leads to resignation of chief GM regulator

Attempts by biotechnology giant Monsanto to thwart the proper approval process for its GM corn in Pakistan have led to massive outcry by various stakeholders who recognize they have been deliberately ignored and betrayed by their own government. And the uproar against this high-level corruption has been so strong in recent days that Dr. Iftikhar Ahmad, head of a government subcommittee that tried to secretly aid Monsanto's efforts to push through its GM corn, recently resigned from his position.


Monsanto GMO Crops Ordered Destroyed By Federal Judge


(Reuters) - A federal judge on Tuesday ordered the destruction of plantings of genetically modified sugar beets developed by Monsanto Co after ruling previously the U.S. Agriculture Department illegally approved the biotech crop.
U.S. District Court Judge Jeffrey White in August banned the planting and sales of Monsanto's "Roundup Ready" biotech sugar beets after determining that their approval in 2005 by the USDA was illegal. He said the government must conduct a thorough environmental review before approving the crop to comply with the law.
But shortly after the ruling, the USDA issued permits allowing companies to plant seedlings to produce seed for future GMO sugar beet crops.
In his ruling Tuesday Judge White said those seedlings "shall be removed from the ground."

Cayenne Pepper - Stop a heart attack fast

Did you know that you can actually stop a heart attack in its tracts with the simple but amazing and awesome power of cayenne pepper? It's true. Cayenne pepper can actually stop a heart attack in about 60 seconds flat!

How To Use Cayenne Pepper To Stop A Heart Attack Fast!

Famed healers such as Dr. John Christopher, N.D., and Dr. Richard Schulze, N.D., sang the praises of Cayenne pepper. For instance Dr. John Christopher declared: "In 35 years of practice, and working with the people and teaching, I have never on house calls lost one
heart attack patient and the reason is, whenever I go in--if they are still breathing--I pour down them a cup of cayenne tea (a teaspoon of cayenne in a cup of hot water, and within minutes they are up and around)."

First the Cayenne pepper must be at least 90,000 heat units or 90,000(H.U.) to be able to stop a heart attack. If the cayenne is at least 90,000 H.U. and the person is still conscious, the recommendation is to mix 1 teaspoon of cayenne powder in a glass of warm water (this is essentially a "cayenne tea"), and give it to the person to drink.

If the person is unconscious then the recommendation is to use a cayenne tincture or extract, again of at least 90,000 H.U., and put a couple of full droppers underneath their tongue full strength. As noted above by Dr. Christopher, in 35 years of practice he never lost even 1 heart attack case if the person was still breathing when he arrived, and he attributed this to the prudent use of the
cayenne pepper.


'Magic Mushrooms' Can Improve Psychological Health Long Term


McDonald's and PepsiCo to help write UK health policy
November 12, 2010, The Guardian (One of the UK's leading newspapers)
The Department of Health is putting the fast food companies McDonald's and KFC and processed food and drink manufacturers such as PepsiCo, Kellogg's, Unilever, Mars and Diageo at the heart of writing government policy on obesity, alcohol and diet-related disease. In an overhaul of public health, said by [critics] to be the equivalent of handing smoking policy over to the tobacco industry, health secretary Andrew Lansley has set up five "responsibility deal" networks with business, co-chaired by ministers, to come up with policies. The groups are dominated by food and alcohol industry members, who have been invited to suggest measures to tackle public health crises. The alcohol responsibility deal network is chaired by the head of the lobby group the Wine and Spirit Trade Association. The food network to tackle diet and health problems includes processed food manufacturers, fast food companies, and Compass, the catering company. The food deal's sub-group on calories is chaired by PepsiCo, owner of Walkers crisps. The leading supermarkets are an equally strong presence. In early meetings, these commercial partners have been invited to draft priorities and identify barriers, such as EU legislation, that they would like removed. They have been assured by Lansley that he wants to explore voluntary not regulatory approaches, and to support them in removing obstacles.

Disciplined doctors receiving pharmaceutical funds
November 18, 2010, San Francisco Chronicle (San Francisco's leading newspaper)
About 48 of the more than 1,730 California doctors who received money from pharmaceutical companies over the past 21 months have been the subject of disciplinary action, a database compiled by the investigative news organization ProPublica found. While that represents less than 3 percent of the California doctors who take pharmaceutical money, the fact that drug companies are paying those doctors - some of whom have multiple disciplinary actions - for their expertise calls into question how closely these companies vet the physicians who serve as the spokespeople for their drugs. California doctors have received $28.6 million from top pharmaceutical companies since 2009, with at least three physicians collecting more than $200,000 and 36 others making more than $100,000 for promoting drug firm products. That cash flowing from drug companies to doctors has raised ethical concerns from some observers. "If they're getting as much money from pharmaceutical companies as they do for being a doctor, what are they really? Are they working for a pharmaceutical company, or are they being a doctor?" asked Lisa Bero, a pharmacy professor at UCSF who studies conflicts of interest in medicine and research.

Should You Be Snuggling With Your Cellphone?
November 14, 2010, New York Times
WARNING: Holding a cellphone against your ear may be hazardous to your health. So may stuffing it in a pocket against your body. The legal departments of cellphone manufacturers slip a warning about holding the phone against your head or body into the fine print of the little slip that you toss aside when unpacking your phone. The warnings may be missed by an awful lot of customers. The United States has 292 million wireless numbers in use, approaching one for every adult and child. Devra Davis, an epidemiologist who has worked for the University of Pittsburgh ... has published a book about cellphone radiation, Disconnect: The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Has Done to Hide It, and How to Protect Your Family. Her book ... surveys the scientific investigations and concludes that brain cancer is a concern. Children are more vulnerable to radiation than adults, Ms. Davis and other scientists point out. No field studies have been completed to date on cellphone radiation and children, she says. 28 percent of studies with cellphone industry funding showed some sort of effect, while 67 percent of studies without such funding did so. Ms. Davis recommends keeping a phone out of close proximity to the head or body, by using wired headsets or the phone’s speaker. Children should text rather than call, she said, and pregnant women should keep phones away from the abdomen. The best way to avoid exposure [is] by holding the cellphone away from the head or body.

Could simultaneous vaccines cause autism?
October 2, 2010, Fox News
[Excerpts from transcript of video] Is there a connection between vaccines and autism? Thousands of families with autistic kids think there is. But the Centers for Disease Control has always maintained that no research supports a link. Now one famous pediatrician, who has written a book about vaccines, charges the government's studies on vaccines are woefully inadequate. Dr. Bob Sears is the author of The Vaccine Book: Making the Right Decision for Your Child: [Q]: The government says they have studied vaccines and they do not cause autism. But has the government ever studied the amount of vaccines that our children get in one sitting? [Sears]: There is a CDC report that says that ... simultaneous vaccination has not been completely studied for safety and that's what we're worried about. Babies get as many as six or seven vaccines altogether ... and the CDC is admitting that they aren't always researched that way. The prime example is the flu vaccine. They've researched the flu vaccine in great detail when given alone, but the CDC has never researched it when given in conjunction with all the other shots. I think the CDC is just assuming that they are safe. But I want to know that these large combinations are safe. And what I do as a pediatrician, is I spread the vaccines out. I give no more than two vaccines at a time to any babies in my office. It takes longer to vaccinate them that way but I think it's a safer way to go.
Note: For key reports from major media sources on the risks of autism due to vaccines, click here.


Toddlers are to be inoculated against six diseases at once in a bid to boost vaccination rates, the Government revealed yesterday.
The chief medical officer has told GPs to give the vaccines – including the MMR jab – during a single surgery visit once a baby has passed his or her first birthday.
The ‘super-vaccination’ day will involve three injections to protect against measles, mumps, rubella, two forms of meningitis and bacteria that can cause pneumonia.
Under the existing NHS timetable, a month normally separates the two meningitis jabs from the other vaccinations. The official advice was sent out to GPs in England and Wales last week.

What's really in the food? The A to Z of the food industry's most evil ingredients

(NaturalNews) Ever wonder what's really in the food sold at grocery stores around the world? People keep asking me, "What ingredients should I avoid?" So I put together a short list that covers all the most toxic and disease-promoting ingredients in the food supply. These are the substances causing cancer, diabetes, heart disease and leading to tens of billions of dollars in unnecessary health care costs across America (and around the world).
If you want to stay healthy and out of the hospital, read ingredients labels and make sure you avoid all these ingredients:

FDA admits heart drug doubles risk of death

Regulators with the Food and Drug Administration have warned that Multaq, a cardiac drug Sanofi, has been linked with fatal heart problems in a clinical trial the company recently ended.
In the study involving 3,000 patients, 32 who were taking Multaq died from cardiac-related problems compared with 14 who were taking a placebo. In all, nearly twice as many people suffered heart attacks, strokes and death than those in the placebo control group.

Breast cancer screening has little impact on saving women's lives say scientists

Breast cancer screening has had ‘little’ impact on  saving women’s lives, claim researchers.
Improvements in survival of the disease in recent years are more likely due to advances in treatment rather than regular X-ray checks, they say.
Experts compared data from three pairs of neighbouring European countries and found the ones within each pair experienced a similar fall in death rates.

Radiation from Wi-Fi networks may be damaging trees, according to a new study.
Research in Holland showed that trees that were planted in close proximity to a wireless router suffered from damaged bark and dying leaves.
The alarming study will raise fears that Wi-Fi radiation may also be having an effect on the human body and will lend weight to parents and teachers who have campaigned to stop wireless routers being installed in schools.

Pfizer Drug Tests Kills 11 Children In Nigeria

Busted! Big Pharma epilepsy study rigged to push drug gabapentin

Let's be blunt here: the new report in the Archives of Internal Medicine shows that Big Pharma's research results cannot always be trusted and may place more importance of skewing data to promote and push drugs on the public than in coming up with true scientifically sound data.
Specifically, the article shows how drug pushing - not science - appears to have been the motivation behind a study that supposedly was testing the drug Neurontin (gabapentin), currently widely used to treat nerve pain. The test was allegedly designed to document how various doses could treat epilepsy. But it turns out the trial was set up to "seed" the results in order to sell the drug, much like a card shark might stack a deck of cards in order to cheat at a game of poker.

According to the just published article, when researchers are involved in so-called seeding research, they are conducting clinical trials primarily as marketing tools so the drug can be promoted and sales pushed by doctors. Bottom line: these are promotional trials used for selling drugs and research subjects and physicians may not be told the true purpose of the studies.

Surely, promoting a study as true scientific research when it is really a ploy used to market drugs must be illegal, right? According to the new report, Big Pharma is allowed to get away with seeding studies under the current law. However, the authors (Samuel D. Krumholz, B.A., David S. Egilman, M.D., M.P.H., and Joseph S. Ross, M.D., M.H.S., who are consultants at the request of plaintiffs currently suing Pfizer Inc. over the gabapentin seeding study in the U.S.), report the practice is clearly unethical.

The Ohio medical board concluded [1] that pain physician William D. Leak had performed “unnecessary” nerve tests on 20 patients and subjected some to “an excessive number of invasive procedures,” including injections of agents that destroy nerve tissue.
Yet the finding, posted on the board’s public website, didn’t prevent Eli Lilly and Co. from using him as a promotional speaker and adviser. The company has paid him $85,450 since 2009.
In 2001, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ordered [2] Pennsylvania doctor James I. McMillen to stop “false or misleading” promotions of the painkiller Celebrex, saying he minimized risks and touted it for unapproved uses.


17,000 doctors cash in drug company money, report finds
October 19, 2010, MSNBC/Reuters
More than 17,000 doctors and other health care providers have taken money from seven major drug companies to talk to other doctors about their products, a joint investigation by news organizations and non-profit groups found. More than 380 of the doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other professionals took in more than $100,000 in 2009 and 2010, according to the investigation. The report said far more doctors are likely to have taken such payments, but it documented these based on information from seven drugmakers. The investigation by journalism group ProPublica, Consumer Reports magazine, NPR radio and [other] publications showed doctors were sometimes urged to recommend "off-label" prescriptions of drugs, meaning using them for conditions they are not approved for. "Tens of thousands of U.S. physicians are paid to spread the word about pharma's favored pills and to advise the companies about research and marketing," the group says in its report. "This investigation begins to pull back the shroud on these activities," Dr. John Santa, director of the Consumer Reports Health Ratings Center, said in a statement. "The amount of money involved is astounding, and the ProPublica report's account of the background of some of the physicians is disturbing."

Secret documents reveal that government-funded experts were warned nearly 30 years ago that tranquillisers that were later prescribed to millions of people could cause brain damage.
The Medical Research Council (MRC) agreed in 1982 that there should be large-scale studies to examine the long-term impact of benzodiazepines after research by a leading psychiatrist showed brain shrinkage in some patients similar to the effects of long-term alcohol abuse.


(NaturalNews) Educated Americans with private insurance plans are becoming increasingly less prone to vaccinate their children, according to this year's annual State of Health Care Quality report released by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). The report states that there was a four percentage point drop in vaccination rates among middle- and upper-class families between 2008 and 2009.


New U.S. Gov't Study Shows NO Damage from Vaccines, Court Cases and Foreign Countries Prove Otherwise

The U.S. corporate-government seems desperate to tamp down the discussion about the link between vaccines and neurological disorders such as autism. The corporate-government, with seemingly impeccable timing, released a study reported on by Reuters basically saying "nothing to see here, move along and keep taking your inoculations:"

Fox News Doctor Gets Schooled By Mother Of Child With Autism

Family to Receive $1.5M+ in First-Ever Vaccine-Autism Court Award


Hannah was described as normal, happy and precocious in her first 18 months.
Then, in July 2000, she was vaccinated against nine diseases in one doctor's visit: measles, mumps, rubella, polio, varicella, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, and Haemophilus influenzae.
Afterward, her health declined rapidly. She developed high fevers, stopped eating, didn't respond when spoken to, began showing signs of autism, and began having screaming fits. In 2002, Hannah's parents filed an autism claim in federal vaccine court. Five years later, the government settled the case before trial and had it sealed. It's taken more than two years for both sides to agree on how much Hannah will be compensated for her injuries.

Newly published research in leading journals AGAINST fluoride and vaccines

Excerpts below, articles here and here. To understand that Big Pharma and "health care" companies do not act for the public benefit, continue reading the excerpt from this. Explanation, documentation and proof that US corporate media makes the choice to keep Americans ignorant of these game-changing stories is here, with an excerpt of one game-changing examples.
"The prolonged ingestion of fluoride may cause significant damage to health and particularly to the nervous system," concludes a review of studies by researchers Valdez-Jimenez, et al. published in Neurologia (June 2011), reports New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc.

New Study Finds Direct Link Between Vaccines and Infant Mortality

A shocking new study published in a prestigious medical journal has found a direct statistical link between higher vaccine doses and infant mortality rates in the developed world, suggesting that the increasing number of inoculations being forced upon children by medical authorities, particularly in the United States which administers the highest number of vaccines and also has the highest number of infant deaths, is in fact having a detrimental impact on health.

New Study: Fluoride Can Damage the Brain - Avoid Use in Children

NEW YORK, June 21, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "The prolonged ingestion of fluoride may cause significant damage to health and particularly to the nervous system," concludes a review of studies by researchers Valdez-Jimenez, et al. published in Neurologia (June 2011), reports New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF).
The research team reports, "It is important to be aware of this serious problem and avoid the use of toothpaste and items that contain fluoride, particularly in children as they are more susceptible to the toxic effects of fluoride."

Researchers at the Department of Pharmacology and Physiology of the Nervous System, Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology, Warsaw, Poland, published the results of their study, Neonatal administration of a vaccine preservative, thimerosal, produces lasting impairment of nociception [pain sense] and apparent activation of opioid system [controls pain, reward and addictive behaviors] in rats in Brain Research, Volume 1301, 16 November 2009, Pages 143-151. The authors are Mieszko Olczak, Michalina Duszczyk, Pawel Mierzejewski and Maria Dorota Majewska.

Warning to parents: Vaccination increases the risk of contracting diseases

It's now clear that the information the government has been giving out on vaccination is misleading at best. They are in fact urging parents to expose their children to risks they could easily avoid while unconstitutionally trying to stop parents from knowing about safe means of keeping their families well. In addition, the FDA, with its own scientists have warned about its corruption, is now arguing in court that people have no fundamental right to their health.

Nine-month-old twins in Ghaziabad, India reportedly died within minutes of receiving a measles vaccine.
Avika and Anika Sharma were given the vaccinations at a private nursing home by Dr. Satyaveer Singh. Within about 15 minutes, both little girls were dead.

Doctors and patients are being misled about the effectiveness of some drugs because negative trial results are not published, experts have warned.
Writing in the British Medical Journal, they say that pharmaceutical companies should be forced to publish all data, not just positive findings.

India has seen three vaccine disasters in 2010, resulting in four deaths after the measles vaccine and six deaths after the HPV vaccine, so is it any wonder that the citizens of India are wary of having the H1N1 vaccine? The Indian public is not alone in refusing the vaccine, as Finland and Sweden have suspended the H1N1 vaccine by Glaxo Smith Kline, Pandermix, linking it to the sudden rise in the numbers of cases of the sleep disorder, narcolepsy. Finland reported that they have seen a staggering 300 percent rise in the cases of this extremely rare disorder in children who have had the vaccine.

New Study Shows Vaccines Cause Brain Changes Found in Autism

Abnormal brain growth and function are features of autism, an increasingly common developmental disorder that now affects 1 in 60 boys in the US. Now researchers from the University of Pittsburgh and Thoughtful House Center for Children in Austin, Texas, have found remarkably similar brain changes to those seen in autism in infant monkeys receiving the vaccine schedule used in the 1990’s that contained the mercury-based preservative thimerosal.
Webmaster's Commentary: 
The US Government officially declared there was no link between Thimerasol and Autism, but then these are the same bozos who told you that Saddam had nukes and that the Gulf OIl Disaster has "gone away", so it's not like anyone should listen to them anyway. However, just to make sure the big pharma campaign bucks keep rolling in, Congress added a rider to the Homeland Security Act to make sure nobody could sue the pharmaceutical companies!

CDC considering adding meningococcal vaccine to childhood vaccine schedule

Public health officials in Washington and Atlanta, the home of the CDC, seem to be reconsidering their position, however, based, at least in part, on an analysis of the cost-effectiveness of the vaccine.

CBS's Sharyl Attkisson discusses the conflicts of interest is those supposedly 'independent' sources that back the government's assertion that vaccines are safe and effective.

Le DCA, efficace contre le cancer, mais pas lucratif

Le Dr Michhelakis de l'université de l'Alberta a découvert que le DCA (acide dichloro-acétique) réduit la taille des tumeurs cancéreuses (poumons, sein, cerveau) chez les souris, et cela en juste quelques semaines et sans effet secondaire!  De plus, la substance ne coûte presque rien et, selon des tests, ne cause pas d'effets secondaires chez les êtres humains non plus.  Bref, c'est un médicament idéal.

Seul petit problème, aucune compagnie pharmaceutique ne détient de brevet pour ce médicament et donc aucune n'est intéressée à le mettre en marché ni à l'étudier.  Et avec les coûts astronomiques exigés par les législations actuelles pour franchir toutes les étapes de test et homologations (env. 100 millions $), il n'y a qu'elles qui ont les moyens et qui peuvent se permettre de le vendre aux malades. 

Ce n'est pas la première fois que les grandes compagnies transnationales pharmaceutiques ne font rien devant la découverte de médicaments efficaces, mais non lucratifs. C'est en fait devenu la norme. Une nouvelle indication du fait que ces compagnies (avec la bénédiction des agences gouvernementales) ne travaillent pas pour rétablir la santé, mais bien pour ''gérer la maladie'' des patients, devenus dépendants de leurs produits.

Voir le reportage sur le réseau canadien CTV:

Scientists at the University of Oxford conducted a trial on 168 people and found that taking high doses of three vitamin B supplements every day reduced brain shrinkage associated with dementia by up to 53 per cent.
Webmaster's Commentary: 
This is a very small trial number, and you can bet that the pharmaceutical companies are going to try their best to spin these results negatively.
However, if further tests are run and the results are consistently positive, this may well change the way mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease are treated, providing real relief for both patients and their families.

Study shows Roundup link to birth defects


FORGET penicillin, space travel and the silicon chip. Science is on the verge of its greatest discovery - chocolate that's good for you.
DNA experts are working with sweet giants Mars to create genetically modified chocolate that fights heart disease and diabetes and won't make you fat.
They've already been at it for two years. And they claim that in another five, they could unlock the secret of how to make chocolate healthy.
The scientists say the secret lies in the genetic code of the cocoa bean.
The beans contain chemicals called flavonols which lower blood pressure and help keep the heart healthy.
And the scientists believe they can change the DNA of the cocoa tree so it produces beans with far higher levels of flavonols.
They also hope to produce beans that fight diabetes, as well as making the fat in cocoa much healthier.
Dr Howard-Yana Shapiro, global director of plant science and research at Mars, said: "The idea is that this is something that wi l l become the norm - healthy fats, high levels of flavonols.
"Chocolate will become something quite different in 10, 15, 20 years, and we are on that track now.
"It is not something we can deliver tomorrow, but maybe in f ive years we can."
Side note, chocolate doesn't make you fat, the sugar added to chocolate does.


On ne connait pas les effets à long terme, on ne peut garantir qu’il ne causeront pas de problèmes et selon les évidences déjà disponibles, ont sait que les OGM sont néfastes. Et puis ils veulent faire du chocolat qui va nous guérir de tout???


‘Stoner Stupid’ Myth Goes Up In Smoke

Paul Armentano, Deputy Director

The consumption of cannabis, even long-term, poses few adverse effects on cognitive performance, according to clinical trial data to be published in the scientific journal Addiction...
Additionally, studies have also implied that cannabis may be neuroprotective against alcohol-induced cognitive deficits. A 2009 study by investigators at the University of California and San Diego reported that binge drinkers who also used cannabis experienced significantly less white matter damage to the brain as compared to subjects who consumed alcohol alone.


Dad Gives Toddler Battling Brain Cancer Medical Marijuana
April 28, 2011, KXLY-TV (Spokane, WA)
To call what the Hyde family has been through a "parent's worst nightmare" sounds like a horrible cliche. But, it's hard to imagine what else you could call it. Their two-year-old son Cash was diagnosed last year with a stage 4 brain tumor; he nearly died more times than they can count. He was miserable from the chemotherapy coursing through his body until his dad made a controversial decision to give cannabis to his young son. The doctors had no answers, so Mike found his own. It was relief for Cashy in the form of cannabis oil. It's illegal to possess without authorization from a medical professional. It's something doctors wouldn't even discuss. Mike got authorization to give Cashy the oil and, without telling them why, told the doctors to wean Cashy off the anti-nausea cocktail. Inserted through Cashy's feeding tube, a tiny amount of oil replaced all those drugs. The result, Mike said, was almost immediate. Mike Hyde, though, doesn't care about the controversy or the political battle over this drug. He cares that his son survived and is convinced not only did the cannabis help Cashy feel better, it prevented long-term damage to his organs. For Mike, the proof is in his vibrant two-year old boy. "It's very controversial, it's very scary. But, there's nothing more scary than losing your child." A few weeks ago, Cashy was back in Salt Lake City for scans and found out he's cancer-free.


Cannabinoid-1 Receptor Protects Brain from Rapid Degeneration

Professor Dr. Andreas Zimmer, team leader at the Institut für Molekulare Psychiatrie at the University of Bonn, along with Dr. Andras Bilkei-Gorzo, study leader on Zimmer's team, Önder Albayram, principal author on Zimmer's team, and a group of researchers, have discovered that a certain receptor can play a large role in preventing degeneration of the brain.
A receptor is a protein that is capable of binding to other substances which leads to a chain of signals. One receptor in particular, called the cannabinoid-1 (CB1) receptor, allow cannabinoids like THC bind to it, which causes a person to feel the effect of marijuana for example. Now, researchers have found that this receptor plays a role in brain degeneration.


GM marijuana problem growing in Colombia

CALI, Colombia (AFP) – Greenhouses lined with genetically modified marijuana sit on a mountainside just an hour ride from Cali, Colombia, where farmers say the enhanced plants are more powerful and profitable.
One greenhouse owner said she can sell the modified marijuana for 100,000 pesos ($54) per kilo (2.2 pounds), which is nearly 10 times more than the price she can get for ordinary marijuana.
Local authorities said the arrival of genetically modified seeds, which are imported from Europe and the United States have allowed "a bigger production and better quality at the same time".
Okay, so maybe GM isn't all bad...


DEA: Pot has no accepted medical use

Marijuana has been approved by many states and the nation's capital to treat a range of illnesses, but the federal government has ruled that it has no accepted medical use and should remain classified as a dangerous drug like heroin.
"Look, you morons; lemme explain things to you!
We made drugs illegal to make them expensive, okay? Like how prohibition made alcohol worth ten times what it had been while legal.
With me so far?
Making drugs illegal makes them more profitable.
Write that down; it's important.
Now, since I got into office, I have been sending guns down to Mexico to the Zeta gang so that they can establish a monopoly on the importation of Pakalolo, I mean Marijuana, while I got the DEA shutting down anyone impudent enough to grow Pakalolo, I mean Marijuana, for themselves, see?
Me and my homies'; we're getting rich off of the weed and if you think I am gonna let you slaves legalize Pakalolo, I mean Marijuana, and undermine the profits after all the work we put into setting this up, then you must be high!
Medical uses my ass! If you want to smoke Pakalolo, I mean Marijuana, THEN YOU WILL PAY MY FUCKING PRICE AND YOU WILL FUCKING LIKE IT!!!!!!!!" -- Official White Horse Souse

GM maize 'has polluted rivers across the United States'

An insecticide used in genetically modified (GM) crops grown extensively in the United States and other parts of the world has leached into the water of the surrounding environment.
The insecticide is the product of a bacterial gene inserted into GM maize and other cereal crops to protect them against insects such as the European corn borer beetle. Scientists have detected the insecticide in a significant number of streams draining the great corn belt of the American mid-West.
Webmaster's Commentary: 
This is another classic example of a new technology sold to the public without thinking it all the way through. The maize plants had a gene added that forced them to produce an insecticide in the entire plant. When the non-crop portion of the plants decompose after harvest, the toxin drains off into streams and rivers where it accumulates, poisoning the environment, including benign and necessary insects which aid pollination of food crops.
And again, we expect corporations to stop all thinking once the product is paid for, but the US Government justifies its control over our lives and the pillaging of our wealth with thew promise that it will exercise oversight on potentially dangerous behaviors of corporations, such as when the SEC was supposed to keep an eye on Bernie Madoff (but didn't), the Bureau of Mine Safety was supposed to keep the mines from caving in (they didn't) and the MMS was supposed to make sure oil drilling didn't pose a hazard to the nation (they didn't do that either). In this case, with genetic engineering being the most dangerous technology to be allowed into the wild, proper oversight should have been exercised to consider what happens to the environment when the product ends its useful life and breaks free into the wild, such as the transfer of the "Roundup Ready" gene from food crops into Pigweed. Once again we are looking at a total failure of the US Government to protect the interests of ordinary Americans.


Formaldehyde derived from dietary aspartame binds to tissue components in vivo

The administration of labelled aspartame to a group of cirrhotic rats resulted in comparable label retention by tissue components, which suggests that liver function (or its defect) has little effect on formaldehyde formation from aspartame and binding to biological components. The chronic treatment of a series of rats with 200 mg/kg of non-labelled aspartame during 10 days resulted in the accumulation of even more label when given the radioactive bolus, suggesting that the amount of formaldehyde adducts coming from aspartame in tissue proteins and nucleic acids may be cumulative. It is concluded that aspartame consumption may constitute a hazard because of its contribution to the formation of formaldehyde adducts.


Government Says 2 Common Materials Pose Risk of Cancer

WASHINGTON — The government issued warnings on Friday about two materials used daily by millions of Americans, saying that one causes cancer and the other might.
Government scientists listed formaldehyde as a carcinogen, and said it is found in worrisome quantities in plywood, particle board, mortuaries and hair salons. They also said that styrene, which is used in boats, bathtubs and in disposable foam plastic cups and plates, may cause cancer but is generally found in such low levels in consumer products that risks are low.


Banned in Europe for Causing 83,000 Heart Attacks - Are You Taking Avandia?


A September 23, 2010 article in the New England Journal of Medicine announced that, finally, the FDA has stepped forward and decided on regulatory action for Avandia, a diabetes drug that last year claimed 1,354 lives as a result of cardiac-associated problems.
The FDA is restricting access to Avandia by requiring GSK to submit a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy, or REMS.
Evidence linking Avandia to an increased risk of a heart attack or stroke has been building since 2007, and GSK has agreed to pay $460 million in damages to settle about 10,000 lawsuits in America linking its use to patients suffering serious medical setbacks. But the US FDA has chosen only to monitor the drug, rather than ask for a recall.


Big Pharma Scores Big Win: Medicinal Herbs Will Disappear in EU

It's almost a done deal. We are about to see herbal preparations disappear, and the ability of herbalists to prescribe them will also be lost.
Big Pharma has almost reached the finish line of its decades-long battle to wipe out all competition. As of 1 April 2011—less than eight months from now—virtually all medicinal herbs will become illegal in the European Union. The approach in the United States is a bit different, but it's having the same devastating effect. The people have become nothing more than sinks for whatever swill Big Pharma and Agribusiness choose to send our way, and we have no option but to pay whatever rates they want.
Big Pharma and Agribusiness have almost completed their march to take over every aspect of health, from the food we eat to the way we care for ourselves when we're ill. Have no doubt about it: this takeover will steal what health remains to us.


Viagra linked to hearing loss

Pardon? :)
(NaturalNews) Erectile dysfunction drugs such as viagra appear to double the risk of long-term hearing loss, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Alabama-Birmingham and published in the journal Archives of Otolaryngology -- Head & Neck Surgery.

Viagra, generically known as sildenafil, is a drug in the phosphodiesterase type five inhibitor (PDE-5i) family. The FDA requires that the labels of all PDE-5is, including Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, carry a prominent "black box" warning about the risk of sudden hearing loss. In addition, prior studies have shown that PDE-5is can increase the risk of hearing loss in mice.

Meat tainted with deadly bacteria is being sold to consumers; government forms 'work group'

Meat contaminated by a potentially lethal infection is being sold to consumers -- creating a public health threat that has largely flown under the the radar due to powerful industry interests and lax accountability at the federal agency in charge of ensuring food safety, according to recent studies and a prominent investigative journalist.

GI’s Brains Fried by Military Dispensed Nose Candy

(San Francisco) – Now it is official. Researchers have shown that uranium oxide, or DU, “travels the nerves from the nose to the brain,” in the words of a University of Chicago doc and researcher.
A tiny amount (a milligram) of this radioactive poison quick marches up your smelling nerves right into your brain and keeps firing 1.2 Million bullets a day – forever. That’s a bunch.

Hidden health risk in mobiles: Phone giants accused of burying warnings in small print


Mobile phone firms have been accused of concealing warnings about the health risks of using their handsets.
A warning that Apple’s popular iPhone should be kept at least 15mm away from the body is buried deep inside the manual.
BlackBerry goes even further, saying customers should use their devices hands-free or keep them an inch from the body ‘including the abdomen of pregnant women and the lower abdomen of teenagers’. Again, this advice is hidden in the instruction booklet.</
