Hallmark now distributing vaccine shot compliance cards targeting newborns across America

Editor of NaturalNews.com

This is a reprint of an article that Mike Adams did back in December of 2011 that ought to rile most people up. Vaccines kill more children than the diseases they are meant to cure every year. Take your annual Flu shot do ya? You are at higher risk of dying or having a major complication from that vaccine than if you actually got the flu. That is according to CDC reports which by the way are made public but very hard to find every year.

A recent report came out that there is an epidemic of paralysis caused by polio vaccine in India. This is becoming a major drain on their medical system. Vaccines are dangerous and the Pharmaceutical companies, the FDA, CDC and even many in Congress know it. So do many physicians. So, why do they continue to insist on giving them…BILLIONS and BILLIONS of dollars in profits thats why. they could care less about you or your children as long as they make their money.

By the Way this aplies to the Cancer Industry as well. They are not looking for cures their are already cures available and they have kept them off the market and arrested and imprisoned Doctors who have tried to use them again because if they cure you they can’t make any money off of the millions it cost in treatment  for chemo and radiation. E.      Now here is Mike’s article originally found here: http://www.naturalnews.com/034365_Hallmark_vaccines_newborns.html

(NaturalNews) The Arizona Department of Health Services wants to remind parents to inject their newborn babies with neurologically-damaging chemical adjuvants found in vaccines, and to aid in this effort, they’ve teamed up with Hallmark, the famous greeting card company.

Hallmark has designed and provided a special “vaccine shot tracking” card — an “Immunization Record” — that features the following vaccine propaganda:

Bet you’re as proud
as you can be
of that new little branch
on your family tree!

One of the most important roles as a parent is to make sure your baby is immunized.

Keeping your little one healthy mean starting immunizations by two months of age.

…The following immunizations are recommended before the age of 2…

See the inside of the card yourself at:

And the outside of the card here:
http://www.naturalnews.com/images/Flu-Vaccine-HallmarkCard-Outside.jp…

The outside also adds:

Hallmark is committed to encouraging childhood immunizations… for additional information on the program, go to www.Hallmark.com and search “for America’s babies”

For America’s babies?

Maybe you should instead search for “deathfor America’s babies.” That’s what these vaccines often cause, of course: Death, seizures, neurological damage, autism, fevers, vomiting and much more (http://www.naturalnews.com/029586_Australia_vaccines.html)

I find it fascinating that Hallmark, a greeting card company that usually churns out feel-good blessings and warm fuzzy limericks is now openly advocating chemicals that kill babies.

And they can’t even claim to be “saving” more children than the vaccines are killing, either. Because it turns out thatunvaccinated childrenare overall far healthier than vaccinated children! (http://www.naturalnews.com/033858_unvaccinated_children_health.html)

Targeting Latino newborns? Si! Se puede!

But of course, we know the real agenda of pushing vaccines to new moms in Arizona. I lived in Tucson for many years and I’ve seen the local politics at work. Arizona is a state that’s overrun by the financial costs of providing medical care to so-called “illegals” — undocumented residents who pay little or no taxes but often burden the state’s coffers for hospital expenditures.

What I see in this Hallmark vaccine shot propaganda card is an effort to promote widespread infertility across the Latino population of Arizona. That’s what vaccines do best, of course — induce infertility in both men and women. That’s why Bill Gates, the ultra-wealthy globalist behind the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, specifically stated that vaccines and health care services could be used to “reduce population by 10 – 15 percent.” (http://www.naturalnews.com/029911_vaccines_Bill_Gates.html)

Perhaps Arizona Governor Jan Brewer agrees with that assessment. What better way to reduce Arizona’s financial burden on the Latino community than to make sure as many as possible get sterilized at the earliest available opportunity?

All the better that the entire campaign can be shrouded in the language of “caring for your precious little baby.” You mean the baby that cost the state of Arizona a hundred thousand dollars in emergency childbirth expenses that will never be repaid? That’s the kind of baby the state wants to prevent from ever happening again, it turns out. That’s what the state politicians are saying behind closed doors, in reality.

They figure you can’t just force all the Latinos to be sterilized by injection. So instead, you have to trick them into sterilizing their own little children. Nothing halts the family tree as quickly as a few rounds of voluntary vaccine shots for momma and daughter. And heck, even if the shots don’t kill ’em, the child will have a weakened immune system which translates into a lifetime of Big Pharma revenue from sickness and disease.

Everyone AROUND your baby should get vaccinated, too!

Continuing the propaganda push, the AZ Department of Health Services includes yet another piece of printed propaganda, claiming that everyonearound your babymust also get vaccinated with multiple vaccine shots.

See that insert here:
http://www.naturalnews.com/images/AZDHS-ProvideProtection-Insert.jpg

So now you’re supposed to push every member of the family to go get vaccinatedfor the benefit of the baby!

See how this works? So cousin Jorge, who is about to impregnate another Latino teen, can get sterilized too. It’s sort of like a viral form of socially-enforced sterilization, brought to you by the wonderful people at the state of Arizona and Hallmark, headquartered in Kansas City.

Newborns targeted in Colorado, too

NaturalNews has learned that Hallmark is also conspiring with Colorado officials to push vaccine shot compliance cards onto new moms across that state, too.

In a recent press release, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment proclaimed it would:

“…distribute custom-made Hallmark greeting cards statewide to welcome newborns and inform new parents about the importance of childhood immunizations.”(http://www.cdphe.state.co.us/release/2011/042511.pdf)

No doubt other states are also working on similar programs to distribute Hallmark’s vaccine compliance propaganda to the new moms in their own states.

The great medical IQ test

What’s most interesting about all this is that people who choose to receive vaccine shots are allwinning the Darwin awardby effectively removing their own future generations from the gene pool. These vaccines create a trans-generational sterilization burden that increases with each successive generation until it brings newborns to the point of genetic extinction (http://www.naturalnews.com/033406_vaccines_polysorbate_80.html). That’s why I’ve called flu shots a “great IQ test” to see who is stupid enough to actually take them. In a way, the globalists are actually trying to reverse the “moronification” of the human race by eliminating low-IQ people from the future of human fertility.

And it turns out that gullible people who inject their own children with toxic vaccines come from all races and nationalities: White, black, Latino, Asian, you name it! That’s why vaccines, as they are irresponsibly pushed on children today with the use of brain-damaging chemical adjuvants, are really a crime against humanity.

You can surround these crimes with warm and fuzzy language in a Hallmark card, but that doesn’t make it any less of a crime, of course. It’s still a chemical assault on an innocent child, and that’s a crime no matter how many fuzzy bears and cuddly cartoons you slap on the front of a greeting card.

In the mean time, I recommend we all boycott Hallmark for their role in pushing dangerous and oftendeadly vaccinesonto newborns in Arizona. It’s yet another example of shameful corporate behavior that betrays the trust of the people while serving the selfish interests of the State.

10 reasons why even democrats, liberals and progressives are choosing Ron Paul over Obama

Thursday, January 12, 2012
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com

`

(NaturalNews) It’s a seemingly absurd idea on the surface: Why would democrats and liberals want to vote for Ron Paul (a Republican) over President Obama? Maybe because they want freedom instead of tyranny, it turns out. Because if you’re a total slave to the police state, it doesn’t really matter whether you’re on the left or the right, does it?
Here, I give you ten solid reasons why even liberals and progressives are supporting Ron Paul. And by the way, I don’t worship Ron Paul or any individual. What I honor is the principles that Ron Paul stands for — the very same principles President Obama has outright abandoned in his broken promises and disturbing reversals against the American people. Out of all the candidates, only Ron Paul has the ethical and moral strength to carry out his office from a place of principle rather than betrayal.

#1) Ron Paul supports decriminalizing marijuana and ending the War on Drugs. Obama does not.

Remember when Obamapromisedhe would decriminalize marijuana, but now his own administration continues to raid legal drug dispensaries in California? That’s a classic Obama lie: Say one thing to get elected, then turn around and do the exact opposite.

Ron Paul, on the other hand, openly supports decriminalizing marijuana and ending the failed War on Drugs. Although he doesn’tpromoterecreational drug use (and neither do I), he understands that treating weed smokers as hard-core criminals is ethical, morally and economically wrong. See my related article on Snoop Dogg and his recent drug bust in Texas: http://www.naturalnews.com/034612_Snoop_Dogg_marijuana_War_on_Drugs.html

#2) Ron Paul supports the freedom to choose what you eat and drink, including raw milk, but the Obama administration continues to run armed raids on raw milk farmers

Under Ron Paul, the FDA would be forced to end its vicious armed raids on Amish farmers and raw dairy producers. Obama has openly allowed such armed raids to continue under his watch, refusing to even take a stand for food freedom in America.

Ron Paul understands that liberty is the most important component of abundance. If you are not free to choose what you want to eat, smoke what you want to smoke, and choose your own type of medicine and health care, then you are a slave, not a citizen. Ron Paul seeks to get Big Government out of your life, away from your kitchen, out of your medicine cabinet and away from your children.

#3) Ron Paul would seek to eliminate FDA censorship of the scientifically-validated health claims for herbs, nutritional supplements and natural remedies

Under Bush and Obama, the FDA’s continued censorship of truthful statements about medicinal herbs, homeopathy and nutritional supplements has been fully supported by the White House. Obama is just a corporate puppet, of course, and that means he does whatever the powerful corporations tell him to do — especially the Wall Street and Big Pharma corporations. So it’s no surprise he hasn’t taken a stand to support health freedom for foods and supplements.

But Ron Paul has pushed the Health Freedom Protection Act year after year (http://www.naturalnews.com/019382_Health_Freedom_Protection_Act.html), tirelessly working tolegalize nutrition in Americaand restore Free Speech for Chinese Medicine herbs, Western medicine herbs and dietary supplements. Where Obama wants people to remain ignorant and malnourished, Ron Paul wants to restore your right to know the truth about supplements and natural medicine. As Ron Paul said in late 2005:

“The Health Freedom Protection Act will force the FDA to at last comply with the commands of Congress, the First Amendment, and the American people by codifying the First Amendment standards adopted by the federal courts. Specifically, the Health Freedom Protection Act stops the FDA from censoring truthful claims about the curative, mitigative, or preventative effects of dietary supplements, and adopts the federal court’s suggested use of disclaimers as an alternative to censorship. The Health Freedom Protection Act also stops the FDA from prohibiting the distribution of scientific articles and publications regarding the role of nutrients in protecting against disease.”

#4) Ron Paul would shut down secret military prisons like Gitmo, but Obama wants to expand those prisons and fill them with Americans!

It is now common knowledge that Obama lied when he said he would shut down Guantanamo Bay. As it turns out, Obama actually signed the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) on New Year‘s Eve (when no one would notice). The NDAA grants the U.S. government the claimed “legal” right to “indefinitely detain” U.S. citizens, throw them in secret military prisons, interrogate them and even kill them with no due process. All this can now take place without a person even beingchargedwith a crime, much less given their day in court. (http://www.naturalnews.com/034537_NDAA_Bill_of_Rights_Obama.html)

Obama quietly signed this bill on New Year’s Eve, hoping no one would notice. This is how low his morals have stooped, by the way — to signing traitorous bills in the dark of night, on the evening before a major holiday where half the nation is hung over from alcohol. Why no signing ceremony with full coverage by CNN, huh? Maybe it’s because nationaltraitorsdon’t want their crimes against the United States Constitution to be filmed on camera.

In signing this, Obama violated his own oath of office, nullified the U.S. Bill of Rights, and essentially committed an act of mass civil rights violations against the People of America. Rep. Ron Paul, on the other hand, is one of the very few people who has openly and sternly opposed this unlawful NDAA which blatantly and arrogantly violates the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights.

This single point alone outweighs everything else you might think about Ron Paul. Even if you disagree with Ron Paul on other issues, none of that really matters if you’re rotting away in a secret military prison for daring to protest in a public park, for example. Without the Bill of Rights, nothing else really matters because tyranny takes over. The Bill of Rights must be defended first and at all costs. It is the only thing limiting the power of government and protecting the People from tyranny. Without it, we are all little more than slaves to a military dictatorship.

#5) Ron Paul is anti-war, Obama is pro-war.

Remember when Bush was the President, and everybody on the left was screaming about getting us out of all those wars in the Middle East? Funny how they suddenly fell silent when Obama took over the reins from Bush and continued running those same wars, isn’t it?

Ron Paul is solidly anti-war. Although he agrees with the need to “defend our shores,” he also believes that the United States has no moral authority (nor financial stability) from which to engage in running around the world as some sort of global police force, intervening in the business of nations,especially in the Middle East.

He is solidly against a war with Iran even as all the other candidates seem to be almost desperate to throwother people’s sons and daughtersonto the front lines of violent conflict. Only Ron Paul truly honors the troops by bringing them home. All the other war-mongers who say “support our troops” are really screaming, “Let our troops get killed overseas!” And unlike Gingrich, Ron Paul actually served his country as a military man, even with a child to care for:
http://www.prisonplanet.com/ron-paul-i-went-photo-going-viral-on-internet.html

#6) Ron Paul’s wants to end the Fed and stop bailing out wealthy banksters, while Obama is a Wall Street sellout

Don’t you find it astonishing that, under the Obama administration, wall street crooks like Jon Corzine have been involved in the theft of billions of dollars from American farmers and investors, yetno one has been indicted, prosecuted or criminally chargedfor those crimes?

Under the Obama administration, white-collar crime gets a wink and a nod. That’s because people like Vice President Joe Biden actually worship Jon Corzine

Wall Street crooks were some of the largest contributors to the Obama election campaign, and they continue to promote both Obama and Mitt Romney.

Ron Paul, on the other hand, gets no support from the criminal banksters. That’s because he pledges to reign in the Fed, end the disastrous trillion-dollar bailouts and halt the theft of money from U.S. taxpayers by the wealthy elite.

Once again, this reason alone is enough of a reason to vote for Ron Paul. He’s the only candidate who doesn’t support the financial criminals on Wall Street. Maybe that’s why the crooked corporate media keeps smearing him in the news… they’re all tied in with the same crooks who run Wall Street.

#7) Ron Paul does not need a teleprompter to tell you what he believes, and his message has remained consistent for over 25 years

Obama needs a teleprompter to figure out what to say. That’s because he’s mainly a puppet who says what he’s told to say and signs what he’s told to sign (like the NDAA, which he of course promised he wouldn’t sign but did anyway).

Ron Paul needs no teleprompter. He doesn’t have to keep track of which lies he told in which speech to which group. That’s because Ron Paul tells the truth every time, and his message is the same whether he’s in Iowa, New Hampshire or Texas.

Ron Paul isn’t sexy, trendy or hip. Instead, he’s honest, reliable and ethical. Gee, those might be good qualities for leaders to possess, ya think?

#8) Ron Paul is not really a Republican loyalist

This should come as quite a relief to the Democrats out there. Ron Paul is really aLibertarianwho is running on the Republican ticket thanks to the necessary mechanisms of our two-party system. Most of today’s Republicans are just as corrupt as status quo democrats. They start wars, stage false flag terror events and hand out trillions of dollars in bailouts and government contracts to their corrupt buddies.

Ron Paul is none of that. He’s a humble, highly intelligent and principled individual who often votesagainsthis fellow Republicans on bills that run counter to the United States Constitution.

If Ron Paul wins as a Republican, that would of course give Republicans some additional power in Congress, but Ron Paul answers to no one other than God and the People. As all the corrupt corporate lobbyists realized long ago, Ron Paul thinks for himself and cannot be bought off, no matter how high the offer. He sticks to principles, he honors the Constitution, and he is dedicated to improving the future of our nation, period!

#9) Ron Paul wants to legalize Free Speech (again)

Isn’t it interesting how many of the OWS protesters are now being forced to pay daily fees for the “privilege” of protesting? Gee, I thought America was a free country, and I thought you could peaceably assemble anytime you wanted and shout your grievances to your government. Guess not: http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=FF2F1E3B23AEACE48AB3559AB17B857F

Now the police state pepper spraying has begun, all under Obama of course, who now wants to send Americans into secret military prisons and deprive them of their due process rights. If you believe in the First Amendment and freedom of speech, youcan’tbelieve in Obama! He is the polar opposite of freedom (plus, he flat out lies a lot).

Ron Paul has fought for the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution fordecades, and he has a PERFECT voting record in defending it. He does not waver. He does not bend. He fights for your freedoms in a way that no other Democrat or Republican has ever done.

If you want Free Speech to be legal again in America, vote for Ron Paul.

#10) Ron Paul wants to criminally investigate the crooks in Washington

Most Democrats and Republicans are all crooks who just cover each other’s backs. Yeah, you raped a little kid, but I stole a billion dollars from the taxpayers, and we’ll just agree to both remain silent. Sound familiar? That’s what happens in Washington D.C. almost daily.

Ron Paul thinks elected officials should follow the law. Shock! What a concept! Along with that, he also believes that Attorney General Eric Holder should not run guns into Mexico as part of a staged scam to blame the Second Amendment. Gasp!

Who else dares to say the bureaucrats in Washington are crooks who should be criminally investigated for their crimes against the People? You won’t find status quo officials pursuing any of this, of course, becausethey’re all corrupt!

Only Ron Paul stands out above the lawless corruption and criminal-mindedness of the status quo in Washington D.C. He is the “anti-insider,” the one man who actually threatens the entire corrupt system (which is why the press smears him every single day). This is why the recent voting in Iowa was falsified and rigged to make sure Ron Paul wouldn’t win (this was openly admitted by the Republican leaders on local radio). The crooks in Washington absolutely do not want Ron Paul to become President, and that alone should be sufficient reason to put Ron Paul into office!

You want real hope? Real change? Support Ron Paul

If you love the way things are today — unemployment on the rise, a government drowning in debt, soldiers coming home in body bags, your friends and neighbors rotting in prison after getting caught with a little weed — then vote for Obama! He’s happy to carry on the insane policies that have led us to this point in history.

But if you wantreal changein America, support Ron Paul.Make a donation today, so that he can raise the necessary funds to clobber “Mittens” Romney and win the Republican nomination. Then we’ll have a faceoff between Barack Obama and Ron Paul, and there’s no question Paul would win that contest if the voters still have a couple of brain cells functioning when they go to vote.

FDA uses KGB-style techniques to infiltrate raw dairy networks

FDA

NaturalNews exclusive: FDA wages secret war on raw milk farmers using KGB-style spying and infiltration techniques

Thursday, August 25, 2011
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com(See all articles…)

(NaturalNews) After weeks of investigation, NaturalNews can now reveal that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is waging a clandestine war on raw milk dairy farmers through a network of government spies who are coached on infiltration and social engineering techniques. Resembling the Stasi East German police or KGB of the former Soviet Union, these undercover FDA agents meet each month for a “spying roundtable”phone conferencecalled theRaw Milk Callduring which techniques of infiltration are openly discussed and encouraged.

NaturalNews can now reveal that the majority of these undercover FDA agents are women, who are more easily able to infiltrate the raw dairy community with techniques ofsocial engineering(see below).

The existence of this elaborate spying operation has been confirmed by NaturalNews through three different sources, all of which demanded anonymity as they fear being targeted by the FDA with armed raids, false arrest and destruction of their property, as we recently witnessed with the Rawesome Foods raid. One source told NaturalNews they feared the FDA would stage a Waco-style siege of their farm and invent some justification to assault their farmhouse and shoot them and their family. Yes, this is how much freedom has been lost in America today, wherefarmers are afraid to speak out for fear they might be killed.And yet, it’s not paranoia: They have legitimate reason to fear their own government is targeting them for termination.

Through these sources, NaturalNews has learned the FDA coaches its network of spies to engage in KGB-style social engineering techniques in order to win the trust of the very people it then targets for armed raids and arrest. Those techniques include:

• FDA agents visiting local farmers’ markets and gathering names of possible raw milk providers to be targeted.

• FDA agents calling those targets and trying to convince them to sell raw dairy products by telling “sob stories” of how they have a baby that can’t breastfeed, and they need raw goat’s milk to keep the baby alive. (This is why most undercover FDA agents are women — they make more convincing social engineers when it comes to issues like finding goat’s milk to feed babies.)

• FDA agents engage in name-dropping of others in the raw dairy community in order to imply trust. In California, for example, they might say, “I spoke with Mark McAfee at Organic Pastures, and he told me to talk to you.” This technique impresses the target, thinking they have been recommended by a big name in the raw dairy industry. In reality, the whole story is fiction and is just used by FDA spies to try to ensnare other raw dairy producers.

• FDA is building a secret government database of raw dairy customers. This is accomplished by training its spies and agents todemand the confiscation of customer listsfrom raw dairy farmers. Such lists are then delivered to FDA headquarters in Washington D.C. where they are added to a growing database of names,email addressesand sometimes even home addresses. It is not known what the FDA ultimately plans to do with this list.

• FDA pays huge sums of cash each month to various state agriculture departments, then sends top-level FDA infiltration agents to those states to train state-level agents in these same clandestine techniques. As one example, NaturalNews has learned the FDA currently pays the Wisconsin Dept. of Agriculture more than $80,000 a month for it to spend on these raw dairy spying and infiltration schemes. Shortly after the program was launched, FDA flew several of its top agents to Wisconsin to walk the local farmers’ markets with spies-in-training agents, teaching them spying and infiltration techniques in what was essentially a “Raw milk spy camp.”

• FDA agents have been well trained and schooled on runningelaborate entrapment schemeswhich are operated with the sole purpose of persuading small, local raw dairy farmers to break the law or violate FDA regulations so that the FDA can justify an armed raid on their farm operation.

• Many millions of dollars (NaturalNews could not get accurate numbers on the total expenditures) are being spent by the FDA on these spying and infiltration programs. None of these programs are reported to Congress. None are reported to the press. These are entirely “dark operations” conducted behind the scenes, with no official announcements, and with no desire to attract publicity of any kind. They are, essentially,secret warsbeing conducted against America’s farmers, with no congressional approval whatsoever.

• NaturalNews was told that FDA head Margaret Hamburg is not only authorizing these secret spying operations, but that she tooka personal rolein structuring the operations so that they would not be made public. NaturalNews has not yet been able to confirm this allegation, since obviously the FDA outright refuses to return our phone calls, insisting on operating entirely in secret.

• As part of its secret spying and social engineering effort, the FDA also runs anational farmer intimidation programwhere FDA agents dressed in what look like FBI or “agency” uniforms just show up at farmers’ homes and engage inverbal intimidationin order to dissuade farmers from producing or marketing raw dairy products. This is done without a warrant and completely outside the law. Farmers are routinely told thatif they talk about this, they will be targeted with armed raids.

• One farmer was told, “If you go public with this, we will come back and have your entire herd destroyed by claiming your cows are infected with mad cow disease.” This is a classic secret police-style intimidation technique, and it explains why so few raw dairy farmers have been willing to step forward and go public with their stories. One sheep farmer was already targeted and had his entire flock of sheepmurdered by the FDAworking in conspiracy with state agriculture officials, under the false pretense that the sheep were infected. This particular instance is covered in the film Farmageddon, at http://www.FarmageddonMovie.com

• FDA officials have stated, during these monthly “Raw Milk Calls,” that their goal is the complete destruction of the raw dairy industry in the United States, and that achieving this goal was a top priority of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

• FDA has also stated that it plans to use the increased funding provided to it under the Food Safety Modernization Act toexpand its secret spying and infiltration networkand train even more spies to entrap and intimidate raw dairy farmers.

• Many of the people now attempting to join raw milk buying clubs and meet-up groups are actuallyundercover FDA agentswho are gathering names, emails, addresses and other “evidence” to be used to justify future armed FDA raids. National lists are being drawn up and prioritized to create “hit lists” of farms to raid under the Food Safety Modernization Act.

• Salaries and bonuses of clandestine FDA employees are raised based on the “performance” of how many raw dairy operations are shut down, how many customer names are confiscated, successful raw milk “buys” and other key milestones of oppression and tyranny that are set by the FDA. In this way, FDA agents are financially rewarded based on the number of American farmers they crush.

The FDA’s secret war reveals how the U.S. government is headed toward total police state tyranny

That this situation exists in the United States today is a disturbing and powerful commentary onthe runaway power of regulatory agencieswhich have essentially built their ownlawless kingdomsof power, subject to no law and no checks or balances.

The FDA, in particular, simplywrites its own lawwithout any congressional approval whatsoever. It wages its own secret wars, runs its own spy network and is essentially rising up to become its ownsecret police organization(or terrorist group). None of this has ever been approved by Congress. The head of the FDA is not elected by the voters. And President Obama is either unaware that all this is going on or refuses to do anything about it. (President Bush did nothing about it, either, and you can bet that unless the next President is Ron Paul, this same look-the-other-way attitude will continue at the White House).

The FDA, notably, far from protecting Americans from dangerous foods and drugs, now seesthe people as the enemyand spends an inordinate amount of its time and money waging secret spying campaigns and plotting armed raids against innocents. If this rise to power continues, the FDA will effectively becomethe KGB of agriculture, eventually wielding its own firearms and running terror-style hit-and-run assaults on people engaged in small-scale organic farming, gardening or raw dairy production. This is, essentially,all-out war against the American people, and it’s all being funded by your taxpayer dollars and carried out with the full tolerance of the President himself.

President Obama could put a stop to this if he wanted to. The FDA could be reeled in and de-funded. It could be split into two separate agencies: Foods, and then Drugs as a separate agency. Congress could pass a “food freedom rights” law that guarantees the protection of farmers (of course, the FDA would probably just ignore it, as the agency respects absolutely no law whatsoever).

The growing revolt against the FDA’s war on innocents

NaturalNews has learned, through its own network of informants, that the most likely outcome of all this is agrowing citizens’ revolt against FDA tyranny. While this revolt is so far focused on peaceful protest and non-violent resistance against the FDA’s secret war on Americans, it is my personal belief that at some point we will witness an escalation where FDA agents who are discovered and “outed” wind up shot in the head, or farmers begin to fight back and defend their farms against FDA raids through the use of firearms — which is, of course, their right.

That’s the whole point of the Second Amendment, of course: To give the citizens of America a fighting chance against oppressive government. This is why the right to own firearms was specifically placed in the Bill of Rights, just after the right to Free Speech. It was not put there as a right to go hunting or to engage in “sport” shooting. It was written there specifically as a way for the citizens to protect themselves from government tyrants who, throughout history, have always — always! — overstepped their bounds to become tyrannical, oppressive regimes that end up using guns against innocent citizens.

It is only the mass armament of the People that creates the ultimate “balance” of keeping government power in check. When the FDA enforces its criminal agenda through the threat of guns, it is up to the People to invoke their own Second Amendment protections in response and present an armed, lawful, protective resistance against tyranny that tells the FDA, “If you continue down this path, you will be fired upon.”

I believe we are very close to entering the age ofa shooting warbetween farmers and the FDA. I would encourage the FDA agents who are no doubt reading this to strongly consider: Is your war against raw milk worthrisking your life?

Here at NaturalNews, we do not want to see this situation devolve into a shooting war, and yet, asPresident John F. Kennedy famously said: “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

Unless the FDA backs off from these secret police tactics, in other words, the agency can expect to be dealing with a whole new problem: Lead poisoning. This is the FDA’s own fault, of course. When farmers are stripped of their God-given right to produce honest food and sell it to their neighbors, and when they are treated like criminals and terrorists by an out-of-control, rogue federal agency that respects no law and no rights, it is only a matter of time before some of these farmers are driven to the point of shooting back. And I dare say, farmers are far better shots than FDA agents.

Help us end this insanity by leaking intel

NaturalNews has already received information hinting that even many agents within the FDA are fed up with the agency’s illegal war on farmers. If you work for the FDA, or with the FDA, or participated in FDA raids in any way, and if you have intelligence that needs to be made public to help end this secret war, NaturalNews will protect your anonymity, just as we have the other sources who provided intelligence for this story.

You may submit tips to us at: http://www.naturalnews.com/newstips/NewsTips.asp

Our goal is to see the FDA’s war exposed, to see Congress take action to halt the FDA’s actions, and to see the rights of farmers protected under law. We do not wish to see this escalate into the violence that now seems likely.

Obviously, do not submit tips to us from your work computer, because that can be tracked. Use an internet cafe so that your IP address cannot be tracked by anyone.

Remember: The government is also tracking and reading your emails, so take all necessary steps to protect your privacy and safety. We are, after all, dealing with a terrorist organization in the FDA. The FDA may stop at nothing to protect its power and continue waging its war on American farmers.

NaturalNews is actively gathering and distributing intelligence on this situation, publicizing the truth that the FDA wants to keep secret — that it is waging a clandestine, illegal war against America’s farmers, using Stasi-style, or KGB-inspired secret police tactics combined with the threat of violence to crush resistance. This isa campaign of terrorismbeing waged against innocent farmers in America, and it is a sign of a government out of control… a government which, in many ways, has becomean enemy of the Peopleand an enemy of freedom.

The FDA wants MORE power

And the FDA is just getting warmed up. Once the new funding from the Food Safety Modernization Act kicks in, this agency promises to unleash an army of new agents to sweep across the countryside, detaining gardeners and small farmers, demanding “show me your papers!” Meanwhile, its agents will be terrorizing, intimidating and threatening everyone except the big agriculture giants which are always exempt from government scrutiny (even though they are the ones causing all the food safety problems in the first place).

If the FDA is not stopped, it is positioned to rise up as the most dangerous government-run terrorist organization America has ever seen. Already responsible for the death of at least 100,000 Americans each year who die from taking FDA-approved medications, this agency is now hell bent ondestroying an entire food-producing industrywhile exploiting the most insidious tactics of intimidation and oppression that have ever been used throughout the world’s most criminal regimes: Stalin, Pol Pot, Hitler and others.

We are watching the history of tyrannical government oppression repeat itself here, and just as Mao murdered hundreds of thousands of intellectuals, and Hitler gassed millions of Jews, the FDA is determined to silence and destroy the livelihoods of countless American farmers who are only guilty of “weapons of mass nutrition.” (http://counterthink.com/Rawesome_Foods.asp)

May God help us all. What we need to see right now is the Dept. of Justice conducting anarmed raid on the FDA, arresting all the top FDA officials and charging them withcriminal conspiracyto deprive American farmers of their rights.

Only then can we see justice served in America… and the rights of a free people protected under law.

Government agents target food distribution centers for destruction

The animation follows on the heels of the recent Rawesome Foods raids conducted by the FDA and the California Dept. of Agriculture, where government agents conducted an armed, SWAT-style raid on a food distribution center in Venice, California (http://www.naturalnews.com/033220_R…).

To help educate the public about the accelerating frequency of acts of intimidation and terrorism being pursued by the United States government, NaturalNews has also published a detailed timeline of the history of FDA armed raids:
http://www.naturalnews.com/033280_F…

“The FDA unabashedly functions as a domestic terrorist organization,” says Mike Adams, editor of NaturalNews and creator of the “Raw Milk Rover” animation. “The U.S. Food and Drug Administration routinely uses intimidation tactics, the threat of violence, the destruction of business property, theft of business records, false search warrants, false imprisonment and fabricated research data to achieve its political goal of protecting the processed dairy industry from competition.”

Videos recorded during the Rawesome Foods raid fully support these claims, revealing how the FDA conspired by California government agents to pillage the Rawesome Foods distribution center and destroy tens of thousands of dollars worth of fresh milk, cheese, watermelons and mangos (http://www.naturalnews.com/033258_R…) while stealing computers and cash.

The FDA’s terrorism tactics have backfired on the rogue agency, of course, causing distrust of government to spread like wildfire throughout the progressive community which has traditionally supported a larger government role in so-called “food safety.” Now, huge numbers of people are realizing that granting the FDA expanded powers over food safety is sort of like handing a flamethrower to an arsonist. The FDA consistently uses its powers to attack and intimidate dietary supplement manufacturers, advanced medicine pioneers (http://www.naturalnews.com/032998_B…) and destroy the businesses of farmers and small health food operations.

Why Aren’t G.M.O. Foods Labeled?

February 15, 2011, 9:00 PM

By MARK BITTMAN

Mark Bittman Mark Bittman on food and all things related.

If you want to avoid sugar, aspartame, trans-fats, MSG, or just about anything else, you read the label. If you want to avoid G.M.O.’s — genetically modified organisms — you’re out of luck. They’re not listed. You could, until now, simply buy organic foods, which by law can’t contain more than 5 percent G.M.O.’s. Now, however, even that may not work.

In the last three weeks, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has approved three new kinds of genetically engineered (G.E.) foods: alfalfa (which becomes hay), a type of corn grown to produce ethanol), and  sugar beets. And the approval by the Food and Drug Administration of a super-fast-growing salmon — the first genetically modified animal to be sold in the U.S., but probably not the last — may not be far behind.
It’s unlikely that these products’ potential  benefits could possibly outweigh their potential for harm. But even more unbelievable is that the F.D.A.and the U.S.D.A. will not require any of these products, or foods containing them, to be labeled as genetically engineered, because they don’t want to “suggest or imply” that these foods are “different.” (Labels with half-truths about health benefits appear to be O.K., but that’s another story.)

They are arguably different, but more important, people are leery of them. Nearly an entire continent — it’s called Europe — is so wary that G.E. crops are barely grown there and there are strict bans on imports (that policy is in danger). Furthermore, most foods containing more than 0.9 percent G.M.O.’s must be labeled.

G.E. products may grow faster, require fewer pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides, and reduce stress on land, water and other resources; they may be more profitable to farmers. But many of these claims are in dispute, and advances in conventional agriculture, some as simple as drip irrigation, may achieve these same goals more simply. Certainly conventional agriculture is more affordable for poor farmers, and most of the worlds’ farmers are poor. (The surge in suicides among Indian farmers has been attributed by some, at least in part, to G.E. crops, and it’s entirely possible that what’s needed to feed the world’s hungry is not new technology but a better distribution system and a reduction of waste.)

To be fair, two of the biggest fears about G.E. crops and animals — their potential to provoke allergic reactions and the transfer to humans of antibiotic-resistant properties of G.M.O.’s — have not come to pass. (As far as I can tell, though, they remain real dangers.) But there has been cross-breeding of natural crops and species with those that have been genetically engineered, and when ethanol corn cross-pollinates feed corn, the results could degrade the feed corn; when G.E. alfalfa cross-pollinates organic alfalfa, that alfalfa is no longer organic; if a G.E. salmon egg is fertilized by a wild salmon, or a transgenic fish escapes into the wild and breeds with a wild fish … it’s not clear what will happen.

This last scenario is impossible, say the creators of the G.E. salmon — a biotech company called AquaBounty — whose interest in approval makes their judgment all but useless. (One Fish and Wildlife Service scientist wrote in material obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, “Maybe they should watch ‘Jurassic Park.’ “)

But the testing process is suspect: the F.D.A. relied on data submitted by AquaBounty (that data is for fish raised in Prince Edward Island, even though the company plans to raise the fish in Panama, which is possibly illegal).

Also curious is that the salmon is being categorized as a “new animal drug” which means that the advisory committee in charge of evaluating it is composed mostly of veterinarians and animal scientists, instead of, say, fish ecologists or experts in food safety. Not surprisingly, the biotech industry has spent over half a billion dollars on G.M.O. lobbyists in the last decade, and Michael Taylor, the F.D.A. deputy commissioner for foods, was once vice president for public policy at Monsanto. Numerous groups of consumers, farmers, environmental advocates, scientists, supporters of organic food and now even congressmen — last week, a bill was introduced to ban G.E. salmon — believe that the approval process demonstrated a bias towards the industry.

Cross-breeding is guaranteed with alfalfa and likely with corn. (The U.S.D.A. claims to be figuring out ways to avoid this happening, but by then the damage may already be done.) And the organic dairy industry is going to suffer immediate and frightening losses when G.E. alfalfa is widely grown, since many dairy cows eat dried alfalfa (hay), and the contamination of organic alfalfa means the milk of animals fed with that hay can no longer be called organic. Likewise, when feed corn is contaminated by G.E. ethanol corn, the products produced from it won’t be organic. (On the one hand, U.S.D.A. joins the F.D.A. in not seeing G.E. foods as materially different; on the other it limits the amount found in organic foods. Hello? Guys? Could you at least pretend to be consistent?)

The subject is unquestionably complex. Few people outside of scientists working in the field — self included — understand much of anything about gene altering. Still, an older ABC poll found that a majority of Americans believe that G.M.O.’s are unsafe, even more say they’re less likely to buy them, and a more recent CBS/NYT poll found a whopping 87 percent — you don’t see a poll number like that too often — wants them labeled.

In the long run, genetic engineering may prove to be useful. Or not. The science is adolescent at best; not even its strongest advocates can guarantee that there aren’t hidden dangers. So consumers are understandably cautious, and whether that’s justified or paranoid, it would seem we have a right to know as much as Europeans do.

Even more than questionable approvals, it’s the unwillingness to label these products as such — even the G.E. salmon will be sold without distinction — that is demeaning and undemocratic, and the real reason is clear: producers and producer-friendly agencies correctly suspect that consumers will steer clear of G.E. products if they can identify them. Which may make them unprofitable. Where is the free market when we need it?

A majority of our food already contains G.M.O.’s, and there’s little reason to think more isn’t on the way. It seems our “regulators” are using us and the environment as guinea pigs, rather than demanding conclusive tests. And without labeling, we have no say in the matter whatsoever.

‘One More Girl’ unveils truth behind HPV vaccine travesty

Thursday, February 10, 2011 by: Rosemary Mathis, Director of SANE VAX, INC.

Email this article to a friend Printable Version FREE Email Newsletter from Natural News

(NaturalNews) Ryan Richardson and brother, David, announce the debut of a special preview of their new documentary, One More Girl.

This provocative film documents the stories of the numerous girls adversely affected by the HPV vaccines – giving these young women and their families a chance to speak out – share their dismay and sense of betrayal for simply believing the pharmaceutical and medical industries were protecting them when marketing HPV vaccines for the prevention of cervical cancer. Filled with stories of anguish, loss of innocence, guilt on the part of mothers who encouraged their daughter’s to get the vaccine– and financial devastation as families use their hard-earned savings to find a cure for their daughter’s illness, leaving no viewer untouched. Interviews with mothers whose daughters lost their lives after receiving the vaccine bring tears to your eyes – raising the question of how the marketing of a medical experiment got by the world’s health regulatory agencies.

Donielle Richardson, 18 year old sister of the Richardson brothers was also adversely injured by Gardasil and it was her adverse reaction and long road to recovery that motivated the Richardson family to research other Gardasil injured girls. Their discoveries compelled them to create a documentary powerful enough to prevent this type of travesty from happening to any medical consumer – ever again.

ThinkExist Productions is working in conjunction with two advocacy groups, TruthAboutGardasil.org (http://truthaboutgardasil.org) and S.A.N.E.Vax, Inc. (http://sanevax.org) to include the history, research, and data both organizations have compiled over the last four years. Combined, the organization’s global networks include concerned activists in 120 countries and every state in the U.S. In addition to telling the stories of adverse reactions and death, the documentary will also cover the social/political trail of deception over the global mass marketing of the HPV vaccines.

Updated VAERS Reports – HPV Vaccines
Description Total Female Male Unknown
Reports 21,292 20,377 309 447
Deaths 93 73 2 14
Abnormal Pap Smear 372 372 N/A N/A

The preview of One More Girl can also be found on http://www.kickstarter.com/projects… Kick Starter – Fund & Follow Creativity is a unique site for film producers and aficionados to preview documentary concepts and donate funds for the completion of the films. This is a new and exciting concept that puts film production back into the hands of the people who appreciate the power of documentary story telling instead of allowing the film industry to determine the nature and content of the message.

One More Girl anticipates the necessary funding will be raised in 90 days and has plans to go into full production the second quarter of 2011. The documentary release date is tentatively scheduled for the summer of 2012. ThinkExist Productions, TruthAboutGardasil.org, and S.A.N.E.Vax, Inc. plan to market One More Girl globally – and will enter the film into various film festivals. One More Girl promises to be a powerful documentary exposing the truth about HPV vaccines.

THE SANE VAX MISSION is to promote Safe, Affordable, Necessary & Effective vaccines and vaccination practices through education and information. We believe in science-based medicine.

It’s All Just Coincidental

I’ve been receiving Mark Sircus’ Newsletter for sometime now. Recently I wrote and got permission to add some of his articles here. He has some very insightful thoughts on a number of health related topics. Please check out his site and if you feel led purchase some of his materials. (E)

It’s All Just Coincidental

image

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 seizures occurred within one day after they were vaccinated with Fluzone, the only flu shot recommended in America for infants and very young children. Ten of the children were hospitalized. 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.
Only vaccine manufacturers have the gall to say something like that but they get away with it. We have been had on a grand scale by the pharmaceutical industry just as we have been had by medical officials around the globe who treat the rest of us like idiots every time they even open up their mouths about anything to do with vaccines.
Way back at the end of July of 2010 Mike Adams was shouting, “Vaccine pushers have always sworn their vaccines caused no seizures whatsoever. No neurological problems. No spontaneous abortions in pregnant women. No increased rates of autism. Vaccines are all perfectly safe, they say, and no children are ever harmed by them. That’s the mythology, at least, behind vaccines. But the reality is far different: Vaccines do cause seizures in children, and this year’s vaccines look like they’re going to cause a significantly higher rate of seizures than usual.”
And now we read in the papers that Adams was correct. Children have been hurt and it’s out in the papers for everyone to see. Governmental medical and health officials, the American Academy of Pediatricians, and doctors around the country only had to listen but this is too much for their minds to handle. They would rather inject than listen and that makes them awful doctors. They prove to be Neanderthals when it comes to listening to anything other than the propaganda and false hype that surrounds the world of childhood immunization. It does not take much intelligence to follow the herd in lockstep believing only what we are supposed to believe. We don’t expect religious leaders to listen to anything but their own religious doctrine and we shouldn’t expect anything better from orthodox baby doctors either. They are that dogmatic. They are that closed, blind and arrogant.
Most of us are too numb to feel much about these kids and their families and the hordes of autism and other developmentally-impaired children. We are too numb to feel for the homeless and the people we pass on the streets who have lost everything. We are also too numb about the constant wars and the absolutely retarded reasons for them. So we become so weak that most of us cannot even protect our children from medical terrorists who feel like all terrorists do—their cause is right; their reasoning is sound. So they stock their cabinets with chemically dangerous vaccines and charge right into herds of kids no matter what is reported, even in the mainstream press.
We have become cruel in our coldness and indifference. Life has conspired against us leaving us feeling helpless and defenseless. Some though fight with words and scream against the terrorism of the system and the people that run it. We point our fingers, but are we willing to fundamentally change ourselves? That’s really tough, as everyone knows —it has been said that it is easier to conquer the world than oneself. Certainly mainstream pediatricians find it easier to scare parents and attack babies than it is for them to listen to other doctors, medical researchers, chemists and even parents who are crying for the madness to stop.
It really is hard to buck the system so most people still allow their children to be vaccinated and then they cry later kicking themselves for allowing their children to be hurt. Heartless and spineless pediatricians continue their onslaught and drive home in their Mercedes. It really is no contest who is worse—the thieves on Wall Street who are destroying life as we know it or the pediatricians in their white coats who attack children with their arrogance. People are rallying against the banksters, but who is rallying directly against the field of pediatrics?
I saw a movie tonight that was the strangest I have ever seen. The main character lived a totally psychotic lie rather than facing his reality. Even with the help of psychiatrists who were really trying to help him, and even when he did see what he had done, he chose the lie even if it meant having a frontal lobotomy.
Orthodox card-carrying American Pediatric Association physicians are much the same. They refuse to look, they refuse to pay attention, they refuse to understand the hurt, damage and misery they are creating as they continue to attack children with their sometimes-deadly vaccines.
It takes extraordinary courage today to have children and to protect them from the harm that is intentionally directed at them. It takes courage to even read this book because one has to bear the pain of what is happening and what is being done to the children. One cannot talk about Humane Pediatrics without learning and studying inhumane pediatrics. It is really a very bad mirror on our humanity that we have allowed the worst kind of arrogance to take over the field of pediatrics and let them roam free amongst our children. Catholics have learned the hard way, having allowed way too many children to be sexually abused by celibate sexually-repressed priests. And the rest of us have allowed an exponentially greater number of children to be chemically abused by the “priests” we find everywhere in the field of pediatrics.
In the next week I will race like mad to finish my book Humane Pediatrics and I will pray that it gets into enough hands to make a difference. Pediatricians can learn from it and pediatrics can evolve into a form of medicine that cares more for the children than for the medical ideas born out of arrogance and pharmaceutical terrorism. I hope many will join with me in the fight to bring humaneness back to the medical treatment of our young.
humane-pedriaticcover
Today is a sad day for parents because under the care of modern pediatrics, children have never been sicker emotionally, mentally and physically. Is there a humane pediatrician in the house?
People who are new to my work should not wait for the month it will take to actually get the book finished and formatted first into e-book form and then as quickly as possible into print. I suggest that parents and doctors read my important books: Sodium Bicarbonate, which is a full medical review as well as a cancer treatment book, Transdermal Magnesium Therapy (second edition due out in paperback in a few weeks), my book on Iodine as well as my book, Natural Allopathic Medicine. Each one contains information essential for the practice of Humane Pediatrics.

Study reveals top ten violence-inducing prescription drugs

As most who read this know-I would tend toward a more conspiratorial view of this. Our government has often experimented on us with drugs and I suspect they have known about this.  http://www.naturalnews.com/029946_government_conspiracy_medical_experiments.html

Notice that the smoking cessation drug Chantix is # 1 and that the US and local governments have been HEAVILY pushing people to stop smoking through their heavy handed criminalization of smoking everywhere even in people’s own homes. http://www.mercurynews.com/bay-area-news/ci_16417771?source=rss&nclick_check=1

Don’t think for 1 minute that they do not want an increase in violence as an excuse to further restrict your rights and freedoms. (E) http://www.truthandliberty.com/ProblemReactionSolution.html and https://ephraiyim.wordpress.com/the-problem-reaction-solution-paradigm-why-911-happened/

Saturday, January 15, 2011 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

 

(NaturalNews) The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) recently published a study in the journalPLoS Onehighlighting the worst prescription drug offenders that cause patients to become violent. Among the top-ten most dangerous are the antidepressants Pristiq (desvenlafaxine), Paxil (paroxetine) and Prozac (fluoxetine).

Concerns about the extreme negative side effects of many popular antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs have been on the rise, as these drugs not only cause severe health problems to users, but also pose a significant threat to society. The ISMP report indicates that, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration‘s (FDA) Adverse Event Reporting System, many popular drugs are linked even to homicides.

Most of the drugs in the top ten most dangerous are antidepressants, but also included are an insomnia medication, an attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) drug, a malaria drug and an anti-smoking medication.

As reported inTime, the top ten list is as follows:

10. Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq) – An antidepressant that affects serotonin and noradrenaline. The drug is        7.9 times more likely to be associated withviolencethan other drugs.

9. Venlafaxine (Effexor) – An antidepressant that treats anxiety disorders. The drug is 8.3 times more     likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

8. Fluvoxamine (Luvox) – A selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) drug that is 8.4 times more       likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

7. Triazolam (Halcion) – A benzodiazepine drug for insomnia that is 8.7 times more likely to be                   associated with violence than other drugs.

6. Atomoxetine (Strattera) – An ADHD drug that is 9 times more likely to be associated with violence       than other drugs.

5. Mefoquine (Lariam) – A malaria drug that is 9.5 times more likely to be associated with violence           than other drugs.

4. Amphetamines – This general class of ADHD drug is 9.6 times more likely to be associated with             violence than other drugs.

3. Paroxetine (Paxil) – An SSRI antidepressant drug that is 10.3 times more likely to be associated            with violence than other drugs. It is also linked to severe withdrawal symptoms and birth defects.

2. Fluoxetine (Prozac) – A popular SSRI antidepressant drug that is 10.9 times more likely to be               associated with violence than other drugs.

1. Varenicline (Chantix) – An anti-smoking drug that is a shocking 18 times more likely to be                       associated with violence than other drugs.

Recent Research on Medical Marijuana

Emerging Clinical Applications For Cannabis & Cannabinoids
A Review of the Recent Scientific Literature, 2000 — 2011

 

Despite the ongoing political debate regarding the legality of medicinal marijuana, clinical investigations of the therapeutic use of cannabinoids are now more prevalent than at any time in history.

For example, in February 2010 investigators at the University of California Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research publicly announced thefindings of a series of randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials on the medical utility of inhaled cannabis. The studies, which utilized the so-called ‘gold standard’ FDA clinical trail design, concluded that marijuana ought to be a “first line treatment” for patients with neuropathy and other serious illnesses.

Among the studies conducted by the Center, four assessed smoked marijuana’s ability to alleviate neuropathic pain, a notoriously difficult to treat type of nerve-pain associated with cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, spinal cord injury, and many other debilitating conditions. Each of the trials found that cannabis consistently reduced patients’ pain levels to a degree that was as good or better than currently available medications.

Another study conducted by the Center’s investigators assessed the use of marijuana as a treatment for patients suffering frommultiple sclerosis. That study determined that “smoked cannabis was superior to placebo in reducing spasticity and pain in patients with MS, and provided some benefit beyond currently prescribed treatments.”

Around the globe similarly controlled trials are also taking place. A 2010 review by researchers in Germany reports that since 2005 there have been 37 controlled studies assessing the safety and efficacy of marijuana and its naturally occurring compounds, involved a total of 2,563 subjects. By contrast, most FDA-approved drugs go through far fewer trials involving far fewer subjects.

While much of the renewed interest in cannabinoid therapeutics is a result of the discovery of the endocannabinoid regulatory system (which we describe in detail later in this booklet), some of this increased attention is also due to the growing body of testimonials from medicinal cannabis patients and their physicians. Nevertheless, despite this influx of anecdotal reports, much of the modern investigation of medicinal cannabis remains limited to preclinical (animal) studies of individual cannabinoids (e.g. THC or cannabidiol) and/or synthetic cannabinoid agonists (e.g., dronabinol or WIN 55,212-2) rather than clinical trial investigations involving whole plant material. Predictably, because of the US government’s strong public policy stance against any use of cannabis, the bulk of this modern cannabinoid research is taking place outside the United States.

As clinical research into the therapeutic value of cannabinoids has proliferated – there are now an estimated 20,000 published papers in the scientific literature analyzing marijuana and its constituents — so too has investigators’ understanding of cannabis’ remarkable capability to combat disease. Whereas researchers in the 1970s, 80s, and 90s primarily assessed cannabis’ ability to temporarily alleviate various disease symptoms — such as the nausea associated with cancer chemotherapy — scientists today are exploring the potential role of cannabinoids tomodify disease.

Of particular interest, scientists are investigating cannabinoids’ capacity to moderate autoimmune disorders such as multiple sclerosis,rheumatoid arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease, as well as their role in the treatment of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (a.k.a. Lou Gehrig’s disease.) In fact, in 2009 the American Medical Association (AMA) resolved for the first time in the organization’s history “that marijuana’s status as a federal Schedule I controlled substance be reviewed with the goal of facilitating the conduct of clinical research and development of cannabinoid-based medicines.”

Investigators are also studying the anti-cancer activities of cannabis, as a growing body of preclinical and clinical data concludes that cannabinoids can reduce the spread of specific cancer cells via apoptosis (programmed cell death) and by the inhibition of angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels). Arguably, these latter trends represent far broader and more significant applications for cannabinoid therapeutics than researchers could have imagined some thirty or even twenty years ago.

THE SAFETY PROFILE OF MEDICAL CANNABIS

Cannabinoids have a remarkable safety record, particularly when compared to other therapeutically active substances. Most significantly, the consumption of marijuana – regardless of quantity or potency — cannot induce a fatal overdose. According to a 1995 review prepared for the World Health Organization, “There are no recorded cases of overdose fatalities attributed to cannabis, and the estimated lethal dose for humans extrapolated from animal studies is so high that it cannot be achieved by … users.”

In 2008, investigators at McGill University Health Centre and McGill University in Montreal and the University of British Columbia in Vancouverreviewed 23 clinical investigations of medicinal cannabinoid drugs (typically oral THC or liquid cannabis extracts) and eight observational studies conducted between 1966 and 2007. Investigators “did not find a higher incidence rate of serious adverse events associated with medical cannabinoid use” compared to non-using controls over these four decades.

That said, cannabis should not necessarily be viewed as a ‘harmless’ substance. Its active constituents may produce a variety of physiological and euphoric effects. As a result, there may be some populations that are susceptible to increased risks from the use of cannabis, such asadolescentspregnant or nursing mothers, and patients who have a family history of mental illness. Patients with Hepatitis C, decreased lung function (such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), or who have a history of heart disease or stroke may also be at a greater risk of experiencing adverse side effects from marijuana. As with any medication, patients should consult thoroughly with their physician before deciding whether the medicinal use of cannabis is safe and appropriate.

HOW TO USE THIS REPORT

As states continue to approve legislation enabling the physician-supervised use of medicinal marijuana, more patients with varying disease types are exploring the use of therapeutic cannabis. Many of these patients and their physicians are now discussing this issue for the first time, and are seeking guidance on whether the therapeutic use of cannabis may or may not be advisable. This report seeks to provide this guidance by summarizing the most recently published scientific research (2000-2010) on the therapeutic use of cannabis and cannabinoids for 19 clinical indications:

Alzheimer’s disease
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Chronic Pain
Diabetes mellitus
Dystonia
Fibromyalgia
Gastrointestinal disorders
Gliomas
Hepatitis C
Human Immunodeficiency Virus
Hypertension
Incontinence
Methicillin-resistant Staphyloccus aureus (MRSA)
Multiple sclerosis
Osteoporosis
Pruritus
Rheumatoid arthritis
Sleep apnea
Tourette’s syndrome

In some of these cases, modern science is now affirming longtime anecdotal reports of medicinal cannabis users (e.g., the use of cannabis to alleviate GI disorders). In other cases, this research is highlighting entirely new potential clinical utilities for cannabinoids (e.g., the use of cannabinoids to modify the progression of diabetes.)

The conditions profiled in this report were chosen because patients frequently inquire about the therapeutic use of cannabis to treat these disorders. In addition, many of the indications included in this report may be moderated by cannabis therapy. In several cases, preclinical data and clinical data indicate that cannabinoids may halt the progression of these diseases in a more efficacious manner than available pharmaceuticals.

For patients and their physicians, let this report serve as a primer for those who are considering using or recommending medicinal cannabis. For others, let this report serve as an introduction to the broad range of emerging clinical applications for cannabis and its various compounds.

‘Gold Standard’ Studies Show That Inhaled Marijuana Is Medically Safe And Effective

State-Funded Clinical Trials Show Cannabis Eases Neuropathic Pain And Spasticity, Landmark Report Says

February 18, 2010 – Sacramento, CA, USA

Sacramento, CA: The results of a series of randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials assessing the efficacy of inhaled marijuana consistently show that cannabis holds therapeutic value comparable to conventional medications, according to the findings of a 24-page report issued Wednesday to the California state legislature by the California Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research (CMCR).

Four of the five placebo-controlled trials demonstrated that marijuana significantly alleviated neuropathy, a difficult to treat type of pain resulting from nerve damage.

“There is good evidence now that cannabinoids (the active compounds in the marijuana plant) may be either an adjunct or a first-line treatment for … neuropathy,” said Dr. Igor Grant, Director of the CMCR, at a news conference at the state Capitol. He added that the efficacy of smoked marijuana was “very consistent,” and that its pain-relieving effects were “comparable to the better existing treatments” presently available by prescription.

A fifth study showed that smoked cannabis reduced the spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis. A separate study conducted by the CMCR established that the vaporization of cannabis – a process that heats the substance to a temperature where active cannabinoid vapors form, but below the point of combustion – is a “safe and effective” delivery mode for patients who desire the rapid onset of action associated with inhalation while avoiding the respiratory risks of smoking.

Two additional clinical trials remain ongoing.

The CMCR program was founded in 2000 following an $8.7 million appropriation from the California state legislature. The studies are some of the first placebo-controlled clinical trials to assess the safety and efficacy of inhaled cannabis as a medicine to take place in over two decades.

Placebo-controlled clinical crossover trials are considered to be the ‘gold standard’ method for assessing the efficacy of drugs under the US FDA-approval process.

“These scientists created an unparalleled program of systematic research, focused on science-based answers rather than political or social beliefs,” said former California Senator John Vasconcellos, who sponsored the legislation in 1999 to launch the CMCR. Vasconcellos called the studies’ design “state of art,” and suggested that the CMCR’s findings “ought to settle the issue” of whether or not medical marijuana is a safe and effective medical treatment for patients.

“This (report) confirms all of the anecdotal evidence – how lives have been saved and pain has been eased,” said California Democrat Sen. Mark Leno at the press conference. “Now we have the science to prove it.”

Food safety bill invokes Codex harmonization and grants FDA authority to police food safety of foreign nations

food
Wednesday, December 29, 2010
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com
(NaturalNews) Of all the talk about S.510, virtually no one has actually read the language in the bill — especially not those lawmakers who voted for it. The more you read from this bill, the more surreal it all becomes. For example, did you know there’s a global FDA power grab agenda hidden in the Food Safety Modernization Act? Keep reading and I’ll quote text straight out of the bill itself. 

Section 305 is entitled “BUILDING CAPACITY OF FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS WITH RESPECT TO FOOD SAFETY” and it gives the FDA authority to set up offices in foreign countries and then dictate the food safety plans of foreign governments. It says, specifically, on page 217 of the bill (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-…):

SEC. 308. FOREIGN OFFICES OF THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION.
(a) IN GENERAL. – The Secretary shall establish offices of the Food and Drug Administration in foreign countries selected by the Secretary.

It then goes on to say:

(a) The Secretary shall, not later than 2 years of the date of enactment of this Act, develop a comprehensive plan to expand the technical, scientific, and regulatory food safety capacity of foreign governments, and their respective food industries, from which foods are exported to the United States.

Huh? The FDA is now going to run the food safety programs of foreign governments? Look out, world: I’m from the FDA and I’m here to help!

Homeland Security and U.S. Treasury also involved

So who is involved in creating this? Believe it or not, the global “food safety” plan is to be developed under consultation to the Department of Homeland Security as well as the U.S. Treasury. As the bill states:

(b) Consultation – In developing the plan under subsection (a), the Secretary shall consult with the Secretary of Agriculture, Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the United States Trade Representative, and the Secretary of Commerce, representatives of the food industry, appropriate foreign government officials, nongovernmental organizations that represent the interests of consumers, and other stakeholders.

You might reasonably wonder “What does the Department of Homeland Security have to do with the FDA’s food safety plan?” Or “Why is the U.S. Treasury involved in the food supply?” Learn more about the Federal Reserve and you’ll have the answers to these questions. I don’t have space for all the details here, but read Ed Griffin’s book and visit http://www.realityzone.com if you really want to know what’s behind a lot of this.

Codex harmonization, data sharing and more

So what does this global food safety plan actually entail? It’s all spelled out right in the language of the law. You can view this yourself on page 195 of the bill text in the PDF file at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-…

(c) Plan – The plan developed under subsection (a) shall include, as appropriate, the following:

• “Provisions for secure electronic data sharing.”

This is so that the FDA can electronically track and monitor the food production activities of foreign nations. That way, if somebody in Spain tries to sell raw almonds to the USA, the FDA can make sure those almonds get irradiated or fumigated with chemicals first. Because raw almonds are so dangerous they have actually been outlawed in America (http://www.naturalnews.com/021776.html).

• “Training of foreign governments and food producers on United States requirements for safe food.”

This is designed to shove the FDA’s “dead food” agenda down the throats of other nations. The FDA, you see, believes thatthe only safe food is dead food— that’s why, along with the USDA, they have declared war on raw milk, raw almonds and many raw vegetables (http://www.naturalnews.com/023015_f…).

Now, with this law, the FDA will begin pushing its dead foods agenda globally, essentially exporting the FDA’s agenda of death and disease by making sure other nations destroy the nutritive qualities of their food supply in the same way the U.S. is doing. It’s all great for the global Big Pharma profiteers, of course. The more disease they can spread around the world, the more money they’ll make from selling medications.

Codex Alimentarius is also promoted in the bill

The “Plan” described in this bill continues with the following:

• “Recommendations on whether and how to harmonize requirements under the Codex Alimentarius.”

This is included so that the FDA will “harmonize” the U.S. food and dietary supplement industries with global Codex requirements which outlaw virtually all healthy doses of vitamins and minerals. Under full Codex “harmonization, “America will be left with a dead food supply and the health food stores will be virtually stripped bare of dietary supplements. Selling vitamin D at a reasonable dose such as 4,000 IU per capsule will be criminalized and products will be seized and destroyed by FDA agents who recruit local law enforcement to bring in the firepower.

All this will, of course, ensure a diseased, nutritionally-deficient U.S. population. This actually seems to be the goal the FDA has been trying to achieve all along because the more diseased the population, the more money gets collected by Big Pharma for “treating” sick people with medication and chemotherapy.

It’s all right in the bill!

The text mentioned in this article is taken straight from the bill itself. You can search for it at http://thomas.loc.gov by searching for “S.510” as the bill number.

It makes me wonder why some food book authors so wholeheartedly supported this bill. Why were so many progressives on the left so enamored with this law? Didn’t they realize this was a huge FDA power expansion that would destroy many small farms and put farmers out of business while subjecting the USA to possible Codex harmonization?

Did they even know the FDA is now on a global food-killing agenda that will seek to pasteurize, fumigate, cook or kill virtually every piece of food that enters the United States?

Did they not know that the bill does absolutely nothing to limit the use of chemical pesticides on imported food? According to the FDA’s stance on all this, foods laced with DDT and other pesticides are perfectly “safe” for human consumption, but foods teeming with probiotics — such as raw milk— are deadly and dangerous! (Seriously…)

How is it that popular food book authors and food documentary producers could possibly support this bill? Do they also think small dairy farmers who sell raw milk should be criminalized? Do they agree with the Codex harmonization agenda? Do they think the FDA should run the world’s food safety systems and that the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Treasury should be shaping our global food safety agenda?

You really just have to shake your head and wonder about the true intentions of some people. I just have to ask: Were the supporters of this bill really so naive that they could somehow believe the FDA would actually seek to protect small, local organic farms? What about raw milk producers? What about the single-family farms that must now apply to the FDA for exemption status by authoring research reports, collecting tax returns and producing a pile of documentation the FDA will soon require?

Let me just say it bluntly: The Food Safety Modernization Act is the destroyer of local organic farming. It will gut small farms and local farms, greatly increasing the price of local organic food while decreasing America’s food security. Farmers’ Markets will be targeted by FDA agents who raid the operations of local farmers and imprison them for not having the right paperwork. Families will be destroyed, and those who have been successful at local food production will scale back their operations in a desperate effort to duck under the $500,000 / year rule (which can easily be surpassed by producing just ten acres of organic carrots, by the way).

The real agenda behind the bill

From another point of view, however, this bill is doing exactly what it was supposed to do: Destroy small farms, wipe out family farm operations, imprison raw milk producers and centralize food production in the hands of the big corporate food producers whose operations are steeped in pesticides and soil degradation.

This bill should have been called the “Big Agriculture Monopoly Act” because that’s what it does. It will ensure that America’s food supply will be controlled by Monsanto, DuPont and other agricultural giants who have been at odds with small organic farms for years.

The global food control agenda is a conspiracy, not a theory

It’s all part of the global food control agenda that we now know to be 100% true based on the leaked Wikileaks cables which revealed that the U.S. government conspired to push GMOs into Europe and “create a retaliatory target list” for any nation that resisted GMOs (such as France). Read that full report right here on NaturalNews: http://www.naturalnews.com/030828_G…

Thanks to Wikileaks, we now know that the global GMO conspiracy is quite real. It’s something that U.S. diplomats and government officials scheme on in order to appease their corporate masters in the agriculture industry. Now, with the Food Safety Modernization Act, this global conspiracy extends beyond GMOs and encompasses the global food supply, too.

It has become clear that U.S. lawmakers and bureaucrats will not stop until they have killed the entire global food supply, rendering living foods, raw foods and dietary supplements illegal or impossibly difficult to grow. You can thank your U.S. Congresspeople and Senators for all this, of course. In the end, every Senator in office today caved in and voted to pass this bill. You can also thank those who publicly promoted this bill even while having no real idea of the horrors they were supporting.

Such begins a new era of global food destruction headed by what can only be called the most dangerous government agency in North America: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration. If they do to your food what they’ve done to prescription drugs, annual food deaths will increase to over 100,000 a year.

Watch for the FDA to now set up enforcement offices in nations all around the world and start outlawing living foods on a global scale (if they can get away with it).

Also, watch for a new push for Codex harmonization which is a truly evil agenda to criminalize healing foods and nutritional supplements that prevent and evenreversechronic disease.

US GOVERNMENT KNEW ABOUT HUMAN EXPERIMENTS-Pfizer Tested Drugs On Children!

Please Read the Update posted below this Article (E)

THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN BY SIMON

Pfizer - fail! THE LOGO OF PFIZER (SYMBOLIC PICTURE)

In April 2009, Pfizer reportedly reached a tentative agreement on lawsuits regarding the vaccine trials it had conducted in 1996. Pfizer tested Trovan, an oral antibiotic, on children of Nigeria’s Kano state. To avoid the lengthy clinical trial process required by the Food and Drug Administration, Pfizer decided to expedite the production of Trovan.

It tested its efficacy on Kano children during a meningitis epidemic, with the aid of the non-profit, Doctors Without Borders. This bypasses national and international standards on medical ethics and put the lives of the Kano children in danger.

Since the testing, there has been one civil suit and one criminal case in both the Kano State and Federal High Courts. The Pfizer lawyers have worked closely with a former Nigerian Head of State on a $75 million settlement. The breakdown of the settlement would provide $10 million for legal fees; $30 million to the Kano State government; and $35 million to participants and families.

The US government was fully aware of the cases against Pfizer in Nigeria and helped Pfizer develop a new framework to conduct future testing in Nigeria. Pfizer considers Nigeria to be a major growth market and is working hard to restore its image there.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Update:

Thanks to Nicole at Doctors Without Borders for bring this to my attention. (E)

This article contains misleading statements and factual inaccuracies about Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF). MSF spoke out against Pfizer conducting a clinical trial of the drug Trovan during a meningitis epidemic in 1996. MSF staff were present in the hospital where Pfizer conducted this clinical trial on children suffering from meningitis. MSF the first raise public attention to this incident and in no way participated in the clinical trial conducted by Pfizer in Kano state, Nigeria.

Dr. Jean-Hervé Bradol, former president of MSF France, recently told the Guardian newspaper following false allegations made by Pfizer executives that were published in US diplomatic cable released by Wikileaks website: “We have never worked with this family of antibiotic. We don’t use it for meningitis. That is the reason why we were shocked to see this trial in the hospital.”

Fraudulent herbal immune supplement fails to reduce flu symptoms for 99 percent of people

Monday, December 20, 2010
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com

(NaturalNews) In an independent review published in a peer-reviewed medical journal (see below), a popular herbal immune supplement called “ImmunoFlu Remedy” was found to fraudulently marketed as a “flu prevention supplement.” Its makers claim that if you take the supplement, you won’t get the flu and won’t miss a day of work during the flu season (a silly claim, eh?). But clinical testing recently revealed that ImmunoFlu Remedy only works to reduce flu symptoms on 1 out of every 100 people who take the supplement, meaning it is 99 percent ineffective.

An FTC spokesperson, commenting on the study results, characterized the marketing of ImmunoFlu Remedy as “obviously fraudulent” and a top FDA official has publicly promised to launch a criminal investigation into the makers of ImmunoFlu Remedy in order to “protect the public from misleading health claims.” Evidence has also surfaced that ImmunoFlu Remedy may contain trace levels of heavy metals linked to neurological disorders. Over a dozen children admitted to emergency rooms at hospitals across the country have been identified as consumers of ImmunoFlu Remedy, and two of those children died. The makers of ImmunoFlu Remedy are being ordered to remove the product from their website and recall the product from distributors and retailers.

As shocking as all this sounds, there’s something you need to know as you continue reading this story here on  NaturalNewsThere is no such thing as ImmunoFlu Remedy. This story is actually about seasonal flu vaccines.

Most of the details mentioned above, you see, are actually the true story about seasonal flu vaccines.

Flu vaccines don’t work on 99 out of 100 people

Seasonal flu vaccines have been scientifically shown to reduce flu symptoms in only 1 out of every 100 people (they are ineffective on 99% of those receiving the shots) (http://www.naturalnews.com/029641_v…). Flu vaccines also contain chemical ingredients linked to neurological disorders, which is why so many children in Australia and around the world have been admitted to hospital emergency rooms suffering from seizures and convulsions following flu shot injections (http://www.naturalnews.com/029586_A…).

Seasonal flu vaccines are also fraudulently marketed with blatantly false claims that they prevent the flu in everyone who receives a shot. “Get the shot and you won’t miss work” is one of the common claims made in flu shot promotions. Or, as Walgreens implies, “Get the shot and you won’t infect your family members.” That claim is blatantly misleading and scientifically false.

And yet, despite this fraudulent marketing of a product that doesn’t work on 99% of those who take it, neither the FTC nor the FDA has taken any action against it. Marketers of flu vaccines, it turns out, can make any claims they wish, even if such claims are laughable in the face of scientific scrutiny.

Forget the science… we’ve got vaccines to sell!

Flu vaccines, you see, are immune from any real scientific scrutiny — even by the scientific community. The  mythology of season flu vaccines has been so pervasive and so widely described as “scientific” that the truth of whether it’s really scientific no longer matters. Flu vaccines are simply assumed to work even without testing; without scientific evidence and without any legitimate application of skeptical thinking.

There’s a word for that, of course. It’s the word used to describe a system of belief that requires no evidence… a system in which truths are materialized out of lies through the mere act of enough authoritative people uttering falsehoods until they all begin to believe each other. That word, of course, is a four-letter word: Cult.

A cult need not answer to statistical scrutiny. It need not subject its own internal beliefs to outside review because everyone inside the cult already agrees on the answer — and why ask questions when we already know the truth, right?

Such is the nature of the cult of flu vaccines. It’s a large cult, of course, but the sheer size of the cult in no way detracts from the fact that it is a cult nonetheless. In other words, just because millions of doctors believe the propaganda of a cult does not make it any less of a cult. Even if all the doctors, pharmacists and drug pushers in the world fall for a fictitious belief and put their faith and professional reputations on the line in order to back that belief, it’s still fiction. And it’s still a cult.

Doctors once prescribed mercury and other poisons

There was a time in western medicine when doctors routinely prescribed mercury as a remedy to treat various afflictions. For example, mercury was frequently prescribed to treat syphilis.

In fact, one study describing the treatment of syphilis with “mercury inhalations” was presented at theForty-Fourth Annual Session of the American Dermatological Associationin Swampscott, Mass., June 2-4 in the year 1921. That study was entitled:

THE TREATMENT OF SYPHILIS BY MERCURY INHALATIONS
by H. N. COLE, M.D.; A. J. GERICKE, M.D.; TORALD SOLLMANN, M.D.
Arch Derm Syphilol. 1922;5(1):18-33.

Notice that the three authors were all MDs? That’s because doctors have historically been some of the most persistent promoters of poisonous concoctions that today we would call “quackery.” They even sought to destroy the careers and reputations of their own colleagues who pointed out that perhaps mercury should not be used as a medicine— or even the idea that surgeons should wash their hands!

It is an historical fact that western doctors promoted the heavy metal mercury, highly addictive heroin, and other extremely toxic substances as “miracle cures” for all sorts of diseases and conditions. They also advocated cigarettes as being good for your health and even improving your teeth! (http://www.naturalnews.com/021949.html)

In fact, the term “quack” comes from the use of mercury by western doctors. Mercury, of course, was once called “quicksilver,” and the term was bastardized into the derogatory “quack” to refer to physicians who continued to use dangerous substances that harmed patients. Under that definition, today’s quacks are not homeopaths or herbalists but rather oncologists who poison their patients with chemotherapy in almost exactly the same way the quack doctors once poisoned their patients with mercury.

Flu vaccines are modern medicine’s form of quackery

Based nothing more than wishful thinking and physicians quoting each other as reliable sources of expert opinion, the whole of evidence supporting flu vaccines today amounts to little more than an intellectual circle jerk of truly bad science.

Today’s flu vaccine-pushing physicians, you see, are no smarter than their colleagues from the 1800’s who prescribed mercury inhalations for patients. And they are arguably less wise, too. The only real difference is that todaythere are more of themand so their voices seem to take on the illusion of authority and consensus.

Consensus is not always fact. More often than not, it is merely the mass infection of many minds with official foolishness. At one time, after all, it was an established, consensus “fact” that the Earth was flat. More recently, even in 1847, a Hungarian obstetrician named Ignaz Semmelweis was viciously attacked by his colleagues for insisting that doctors should wash their hands before delivering babies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ignaz_…).

What Semmelweis discovered then is what every person who speaks out against the insanities of western medicine knows today: Western medicine is an arrogant, misinformed and dangerously ignorant system of control in which truth-tellers are routinely exterminated in order to maintain the mythologies upon which the medical industrial complex is based.

The truth about flu vaccines would destroy much of western medicine

Semmelweis was much like the Wikileaks of the 1840’s in the sense that he revealed “uncomfortable truths” that challenged the status quo and made a whole lot of really important-sounding people look like fools. Since really important-sounding people don’t enjoy looking like fools, they simply attack the messenger and increase their resolve to defend their ridiculous falsehoods and mythologies… even in the face of clear evidence that shows them to be wrong. Such is precisely the situation happening today with flu vaccines.

To challenge the sanctity of seasonal flu vaccines and the regimen of annual shots (which just happen to coincide with steady profits for the drug companies) is to question the very foundation of western medicine. Without the mythology of vaccines firmly imprinted in the minds of the people, western medicine would no longer appear to have authority over the flu. If flu vaccines were halted for just one year — forcing people to turn to vitamin D instead —the illusion of flu vaccines would be forever shattered and the people would realize that taking seasonal flu vaccines hots is just as ludicrous as inhaling mercury vapor.

That’s why flu vaccines have to be incessantly pushed, each and every year, without any gaps in the “treatment.”

The real quackery of vaccines

The evil genius in all this is that people have been tricked into believing in vaccineswhether they work or not. When someone receives a vaccine shot, they consider themselves “protected” from the flu. So what happens if they get the flu anyway? They simply reason in their own heads that if they hadn’t been vaccinated, they might have experienced far worse flu symptoms.

And if they don’t get the flu at all? Then they reason that the vaccinepreventedthe flu! Thus, with the right programming, flu vaccines can be thought of as useful and effectiveregardless of the actual health outcome.

This is a classic red flag for a system of quackery. It’s one of the most common complaints leveled against energy medicine conventional scientists, in fact. They rightly point out that determining whether energy medicine really works for you is a guessing game: If you still get sick, you might think the energy medicine worked a little bit but not enough. If you don’t get sick, then you might think the energy medicine worked like a miracle.

Such a logic matrix is prone to misinterpretation by patients and doctors alike. In both cases — energy medicine as well as flu vaccines — patients are likely to convince themselves that it’s working, even if there is no real evidence that their belief is accurate. Belief itself, of course, is perhaps the best medicine of all, and it is a distinct possibility that the small number of patients who seem to be helped by flu vaccines (one percent) may be experiencing the benefit of theplacebo effect.

Nevertheless, the way out of this puzzle is to subject flu vaccines (or energy medicine, similarly) to rigorous clinical trial sin which a serious attempt is made to tease out some statistically significant answers such as “what percentage of people are actually helped by this treatment?”

What’s really amazing about all this is that such clinical trials have already been done on flu vaccines, and the results are in: Seasonal flu vaccines prevent flu symptoms in about one percent of the people who receive vaccine jabs. And that’s if you believe the more optimistic conclusions of the vaccine manufacturers themselves, by the way (http://www.naturalnews.com/029641_v…).

How would this quackery be viewed if it were an herbal remedy?

From a scientific perspective, then, seasonal flu vaccines have roughly a one percent effectiveness rate, which means they have no apparent effect on 99 out of 100 people.

What’s interesting about this is that if homeopathy, or energy medicine, or an herbal formula produced such poor results, it would be widely ridiculed as a quack remedy promoted via fraudulent marketing. A one percent effectiveness rate proves any “natural” remedy to be quackery, you see, and yet the same one percent effectiveness rate is more than sufficient to support the mythology of vaccines to those who believe the vaccine cult.

What it all comes down to is really this: Seasonal flu vaccines are really 1% science and 99% wishful thinking. And yet, apparently, that’s more than enough reason for virtually the entire medical and scientific establishments to back seasonal flu vaccines as if they were scientifically proven while touting highly exaggerated marketing claims that imply one hundred percent effectiveness.

In any other industry, marketing a product that didn’t work 99 percent of the time would be considered fraud. But in the vaccine industry? It’s just business as usual.

How to make money selling a product that almost never works as advertised

The seasonal flu vaccine is a great money-making con, too. Imagine how much money you could make if you could convince hundreds of millions of people to buy a product that didn’t work on 99 percent of your customers, and yet 100 percent of them were convinced that they were receiving benefits from it!

It’s a pretty clever con, and it all depends on promoting the mythology — or “catapulting the propaganda” as President George Bush famously said — in order to make sure that 99 percent of the wishful thinking that powers the flu vaccine industry remains in place.

Because, let’s face it: If flu vaccines actually worked, the industry really wouldn’t need to advertise them so heavily, would they? If these vaccines really stopped flu infections with 100 percent effectiveness, word of mouth about flu vaccines would spread even faster than the flu itself, and virtually everyone would line up to get their “flu protection” shots out of sheer necessity.

The only reason the industry needs to engage in such aggressive flu vaccine promotion is because flu vaccines are only based on 1% science, and the other 99% of the marketing formula depends on keeping people brainwashed into believing the false mythology of flu vaccines.

Flu shots as placebo

Flu vaccines, in effect, are largely just placebo shots. If you think they’re going to work for you, then you’ll remain convinced of that regardless of whether you get sick or not. There wouldn’t really be any harm in that except for the inconvenient fact that vaccine shots contain harmful chemical ingredients that pose a health risk to those who take them.

Thus, even while a flu vaccine may be providing as much as a 1% protection against the flu, it may simultaneously subject a person to a significantly smaller risk of a far more serious detrimental outcome: Neurological damage, convulsions, learning disabilities or even the accelerated development of Alzheimer’s disease.

Are these risks really worth a 1-in-100 chance of preventing the flu? A rational answer seems to be no, they aren’t. Especially when the available evidence says that vitamin D supplements work far better at preventing flu infections. And vitamin D can be taken with virtually no health risks whatsoever. Even better, vitamin D supplements are not formulated with mercury preservatives, chemical adjuvants or other questionable chemicals that are typically added to vaccines.

But don’t expect this sort of rational, clear-thinking discussion of flu vaccines and vitamin D to be undertaken by your physician. Doctors have already drank the flu vaccine Kool-Aid, and as a result the science no longer matters to them. Even if Wikileaks released definitive documents showing the entire flu vaccine industry to be a complete scam based on fraudulent science, most doctors would no doubt continue to push flu vaccines anyway because that’s what they’ve always done.

Doctors don’t change course very often… especially not if they’ve participated as active members of the vaccine cult for several years (or decades). The likelihood of a doctor actually changing his mind on this issue of flu vaccines is even less than the likelihood of a flu vaccine preventing you from getting the flu this winter. And that likelihood is ridiculously low to begin with. So don’t hold your breath. And don’t hold out any faith for the idea that doctors will suddenly embrace scientific thinking, either. Because there’s no room for truly scientific thought in the membership ranks of the vaccine cult.

Let Me See…Die quickly at the hand of a Terrorist or Die Slowly From Radiation

Airport body scanners are ‘just as likely to kill you as terrorist bombs’

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 10:46 AM on 19th November 2010

The airport X-ray scanner has been touted as one of the best ways to prevent a future terrorist attack.

But now a leading scientist has come forward to say it is just as likely to kill you as a terrorist’s bomb blowing your plane out of the sky.

The bizarre warning stems from a statistical coincidence which apparently shows that you are just as likely to die from radiation allegedly emitted by the scanners as you are to die due to a terrorist bob on your flight.

No worries: A US scientist has claimed that the risk of getting cancer from a single airport body scanner is about 1 in 30 million

Peter Rez, from Arizona State University, said the probability of dying from radiation from a body scanner and that of being killed in a terror attack are both about one in 30 million, making body scanners redundant.He said: ‘The thing that worries me the most, is not what happens if the machine works as advertised, but what happens if it doesn’t.

A potential malfunction could increase the radiation dose, he said. Rez has studied the radiation doses of backscatter scanners using the images produced by the machines. He discovered that the radiation dose was often higher than the manufacturers claimed.

Rez suggested that the statistical coincidence means that there is really no case to be made for deploying any kind of body-scanning machine – the risk is identical.But he added: ‘They’re both incredibly unlikely events. These are still a factor of 10 lower than the probability of dying in any one year from being struck by lightning in the United States.

‘Critics say the low level beam used delivers a small dose of radiation to the body but because the beam concentrates on the skin – one of the most radiation-sensitive organs of the human body – that dose may be up to 20 times higher than first estimated.

A number of scientists have already written to to the Food and Drug Administration to complain that the safety aspects have not been properly addressed before the nationwide rollout of the scanners.

Biochemist John Sedat from the University of California and his colleagues said that most of the energy from the scanners is delivered to the skin and underlying tissue. ‘While the dose would be safe if it were distributed throughout the volume of the entire body, the dose to the skin may be dangerously high,’ they wrote.

The Office of Science and Technology responded this week and said the scanners have been ‘tested extensively’ and meet safety standards. Dr David Brenner, head of Columbia University’s centre for radiological research, said children and passengers with gene mutations – around one in 20 of the population – are more at risk as they are less able to repair X-ray damage to their DNA.

Dr Brenner, who is originally from Liverpool but now works at New York University, said: ‘The individual risks associated with X-ray backscatter scanners are probably extremely small. ‘If all 800 million people who use airports every year were screened with  X-rays then the very small individual risk multiplied by the large number of  screened people might imply a potential public health or societal risk.

The population risk has the potential to be significant.’The controversial technology creates a full-body image which is fed to a computer in a private room. It picks up all natural curves and bumps as well any potential weapons which may normally be missed by the traditional patdown.

The Civil Aviation Authority, Department for Transport and Health Protection Agency insist that the technology is safe and say their tests show it would take 5,000 trips through the scanner to equal the dose of a single chest X-ray. They said in the climate of high security, it is essential that security staff use ‘all means possible’ to minimise risks to airline security.

The CAA said: ‘The device has been approved for use within the UK by the Department for Transport and has been subjected to risk  assessments from the Health Protection Agency. ‘To put the issue in perspective, the radiation received from the scanning process is the equivalent to two minutes radiation received on a Transatlantic flight. ‘Recent press publications have been a little alarmist and may have heightened concern in frequent travellers who may worry about their repeated exposure. ‘Under current regulations, up to 5,000 scans per person per year can be conducted safely.
