New Research: CBC Cannabinoid Sparks Brain Cell Growth

This is just another in a long line of studies that invalidate the arguments that the mind control propagandists have used to put fear in people about drugs in general and Cannabis in particular.

Hallmark now distributing vaccine shot compliance cards targeting newborns across America

Friday, December 09, 2011
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
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:
http://www.naturalnews.com/images/Flu-Vaccine-HallmarkCard-Inside.jpg

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.


More Evidence that Cannabis Cures or Mitigates Many Diseases-From IMVA

Multiple Sclerosis

Marijuana-Magnesium-Iodine-Mercury Exposure

An estimated 350,000 people in the United States are living with multiple sclerosis (MS), a painful, debilitating, and sometimes fatal disorder of the central nervous system, and the United States government could care less and would doom this population to more suffering than can be imagined. A long list of ugly words comes to mind when one thinks of any person, organization or institution that would keep helpful and safe medicines away from MS sufferers.

MS is the most common debilitating neurological disease of young people, often appearing between the ages of 20 and 40, and affecting more women than men. Symptoms vary considerably from person to person; however, the one most frequently noted is spasticity, which causes pain, spasms, loss of function, and difficulties in nursing care.

MS exacerbations appear to be caused by abnormal immune activity that causes inflammation and the destruction of myelin, the protective covering of nerve fibers, in the brain or spinal cord. MS most frequently presents at onset as a relapsing and remitting disorder, where symptoms come and go. Current treatment of MS is primarily based on symptoms, focusing on such problems as spasticity, pain, fatigue, bladder problems and depression.

Anecdotal reports and a small controlled study have reported that cannabis improved spasticity and, to some extent, improved tremor in MS patients. Many studies of the pharmacology of cannabis have identified effects on motor systems of the central nervous system that have the potential of affecting tremor and spasticity. A recent carefully controlled study of the efficacy of THC in experimental allergic encephalomyelitis, the animal model of MS, demonstrated significant amelioration of these two MS symptoms. Moreover, cannabis has demonstrated effects on immune function that also have the potential ofreducing the autoimmune attack that is thought to be the underlying pathogenic process in MS.[1]

MS patients report that cannabis has a startling and profound effect on muscle spasms, tremors, balance, bladder control, speech and eyesight. Many wheelchair-bound patients report that they can walk unaided when they have smoked cannabis.

A House of Lords report states that the British Multiple Sclerosis Society (consisting of some 35,000 MS-suffering patients) estimates that as many as 4% of their population already use cannabis for the relief of their symptoms despite the considerable legal risks associated with prohibition. The chairman of the committee went on to state that, “We have seen enough evidence to convince us that a doctor might legitimately want to prescribe cannabis to relieve… the symptoms of multiple sclerosis and that the criminal law ought not to stand in the way.”

Numerous case studies, surveys and double-blind studies have reported improvement in patients treated with cannabinoids for symptoms including spasticity,[2],[3],[4] chronic pain, tremor, sexual dysfunction, bowel and bladder dysfunctions, vision dimness, dysfunctions of walking and balance (ataxia), and memory loss.[5],[6],[7]Cannabinoids have been shown in animal models to measurably lessen MS symptoms and may also halt the progression of the disease.[8]

A recent British survey of MS patients found that 43 percent of respondents used cannabis therapeutically. Among them, nearly three quarters said that cannabis mitigated their spasms, and more than half said it alleviated their pain. A survey published in August 2003 in the Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences reported that 96 percent of Canadian MS patients believe that cannabis is therapeutically useful for treating the disease. Of those who admitted using cannabis medicinally, the majority found it to be beneficial, particularly in the treatment of chronic pain, spasticity, and depression.[9]

A U.K. study published recently in the journal Lancet looked at 630 multiple sclerosis patients after 15 weeks of orally delivered treatment. Fifty-seven percent of the patients taking a whole cannabis extract said their pain had eased compared with 50% who took capsules containing THC and 37% who were given placebo capsules.

Scientists have long been exploring the potential of cannabinoids to inhibit neurodegeneration. A 2003 study that the American MS Society calls “interesting and potentially exciting” demonstrated that cannabinoids were able to slow the disease process in mice by offering neuroprotection against EAE.[10] After analyzing the findings, authors at London’s Institute of Neurology concluded, “In addition to symptom management,cannabis may also slow down the neurodegenerative processes that ultimately lead to chronic disability in multiple sclerosis and probably other diseases.” [11]

Over 40 medicines are listed by the Multiple Sclerosis Society as commonly used by MS patients. Drugs commonly prescribed for muscle spasticity and tremor include Klonopin, Dantrium, Baclofen (Medtronic), Zanaflex and Valium. Klonopin (Clonazepam) and Valium (diazepam) are both benzodiazepines, central nervous system (CNS) depressants manufactured by Roche. Overdoses of these medications, especially when taken with alcohol, may lead to unconsciousness and death.

These drugs frequently cause people to become drowsy, dizzy, lightheaded, clumsy, or unsteady. Other common side effects include slurred speech, abdominal cramps or pain, blurred vision or other changes in vision, changes in sexual drive or performance, gastrointestinal changes, including constipation or diarrhea, dryness of mouth, fast or pounding heartbeat, muscle spasm, trouble with urination, and trembling. Studies in animals have shown that clonazepam and diazepam can cause birth defects or other problems, including death of the animal fetus. Overuse of clonazepam during pregnancy may cause the baby to become dependent on it and it may pass into breast milk and cause drowsiness, slow heartbeat, shortness of breath, or troubled breathing in nursing babies. By comparison, the side effects associated with cannabis are typically mild and are classified as “low risk.” Euphoric mood changes are among the most frequent side effects.

Some doctors are exceptionally dense when it comes to using medical marijuana. Dr. Jacqueline Friedman would rather inject botulinum toxin injections instead.[12] In 2009 the National Multiple Sclerosis Society released recommendations on marijuana as a treatment for MS, stating, “Although it is clear that cannabinoids have a potential for both management of MS symptoms such as pain and spasticity, as well as for neuroprotection, it cannot yet be recommended because … studies to date do not demonstrate a clear benefit compared to existing symptomatic therapies and… issues of side effects, systemic effects and long-term effects are not yet clear.”

Magnesium and MS

Although the cause remains officially unknown, multiple sclerosis is widely thought to begin as an autoimmuneinflammation with magnesium deficiency at the core. In studies it’s been shown that there was a significantly lower value of magnesium than that seen in control cases. The most marked reduction of magnesium content was observed in CNS white matter including demyelinated plaques of MS samples.[13]

Magnesium protects the cells from aluminum, mercury, lead, cadmium, beryllium and nickel. Evidence is mounting that low levels of magnesium contribute to the heavy metal deposition in the brain that precedes Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s. Research has shown that the symptoms of MS are very similar to mercury poisoning.[14] Mercury contamination is one major cause of inflammation in our bodies.

The rate of relapse in multiple sclerosis was found to be
decreased with dietary magnesium supplementation.[15]

Magnesium deficiency causes and underpins chronic inflammatory syndrome. Inflammation is the missing link to explain the role of magnesium in many pathological conditions. Dr. Mazur says, “Magnesium deficiency contributes to an exaggerated response to immune stress and oxidative stress is the consequence of the inflammatory response.” Magnesium deficiencies feed the fires of inflammation and pain and it is magnesium that modulates cellular events involved in inflammation. Increases in extracellular magnesium concentration cause a decrease in the inflammatory response while reduction in the extracellular magnesium results in cell activation.

Magnesium is central to immunocompetence and
plays a crucial role in natural and adaptive immunity.
[16]

MS sufferers have a wide variety of symptoms that often begin rather abruptly and proceed at a highly variable and unpredictable pace. Common early symptoms include numbness, pins and needles sensations, incoordination, weakness especially in the legs, painful loss of vision in one eye, double vision, dizziness, pain at various sites, urinary symptoms and impotence. Symptoms of MS that are also symptoms of magnesium deficiency include muscle spasms, weakness, twitching, muscle atrophy, an inability to control the bladder, nystagmus (rapid eye movements), hearing loss, and osteoporosis.

What is essential to remember about treating pain with
magnesium is it treats both the symptom and the cause of pain.

Researchers have found oral magnesium therapy effective on patients with multiple sclerosis. In one formally reported case a 35-year-old woman suffered with severe spastic paraplegia resulting from multiple sclerosis (MS). A significant improvement in the spasticity was found after only one week from the onset of the treatment on the modified Ashworth scale, an improvement in the range of motion and in the measures of angles at resting position in the lower limbs.[17]

Nystagmus is characterized by an involuntary movement of the eyes, often noted as a shaky or wiggly movement and has been directly tied to magnesium deficiencies. People with MS also have higher rates of epilepsy than controls. Epilepsy has also been linked to magnesium deficiencies. Without doubt magnesium supplementation accompanied by pH control via diet and the use of sodium bicarbonate will do wonders for not only multiple sclerosis patients but also Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease sufferers.

Iodine

The relatively low prevalence of multiple sclerosis in Japan, despite its temperate latitude, has puzzled many researchers. We know though that their soils have some of the world’s highest known levels of iodine caused by the use of seaweed as a fertilizer. Deficiencies of this essential trace element appear to be associated with many diseases, or birth defects, including goiter, cretinism, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and cancer of the thyroid and nervous system. People with MS may also have low levels of selenium or of glutathione peroxidase, an enzyme produced from selenium. A theory explaining the pathogenesis of MS concerns an increased stickiness of cellular plasma membranes, hampering normal vascular function of the brain. In agreement with that theory researchers have found significantly lowered selenium values and lowered glutathione peroxidase activities.[18]

MS and Mercury Exposure

The central nervous system is extremely sensitive and reacts to a combination of factors that allopathic doctors don’t normally consider or address. Toxic exposures, nutritional deficiencies and emotional anguish converge most pointedly on the nervous system with often catastrophic results. Toxic substances such as mercury, which the body is chronically exposed to, accumulates in the brain, pituitary gland, CNS, liver, kidneys, etc. and can damage, inhibit, and cause imbalances at very low levels of exposure. Heavy metals can cause major neurological, immunological, and metabolic damage.

Each individual will be seen to have their own unique combination of neurological, endocrine, and enzymatic imbalances along with autoimmunities that result from the above factors. Symptoms will vary resulting in different diagnoses: multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer’s disease (AD), or Parkinson’s disease (PD), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and even rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

Dental amalgam is documented by medical studies and medical lab tests to be the largest source of both inorganic and methyl mercury in most people who have several mercury amalgam fillings. Very low levels of exposure have been found to seriously affect individuals who are immune sensitive to toxic metals, or have an inability to detoxify metals due to deficient sulfoxidation or metallothionein function or other inhibited enzymatic processes related to detoxification or excretion of metals.

Amalgam exposures are commonly above government health guidelines. This is due to continuous vaporization of mercury from amalgam in the mouth, along with galvanic currents from mixed metals in the mouth that deposit the mercury in the gums and oral cavity. Mercury is one of the most toxic substances in existence and is known to bioaccumulate in the body of people and animals that have chronic exposure.

A large epidemiological study of 35,000 Americans by the National Institutes of Health, the nation’s principal health statistics agency, found that there was a significant correlation between having a greater than average number of dental amalgam surfaces and having chronic conditions such as epilepsy, MS, or migraine headaches. MS clusters in areas with high metals emissions from facilities such as metal smelters have been documented.

Mercury has been found to accumulate preferentially in the brain, major organs, hormone glands, and primary motor function related areas involved in ALS—such as the brain stem, cerebellum, rhombencephalon, dorsal root ganglia, and anterior horn motor neurons, which enervate the skeletal muscles.

Exposure to mercury and magnesium deficiencies are at the root of inflammation. Chelation of mercury will relieve many of the problems caused by it and restoring magnesium levels will protect our cells from the inflammation that mercury causes. Magnesium is a necessary factor in chelation, for without it chelation will not be successful.[19] Heavy metals like cadmium, lead, and mercury compete with nutritional magnesium, keeping it from availability to protect our cells. The healthy cell wall favors intake of nutrients and elimination of waste products and this is one of the reasons magnesium is so important in detoxification and chelation.

MS Seen through a Vascular Surgeon’s Eyes

Dr. Paolo Zamboni, a former vascular surgeon and professor at the University of Ferrara in northern Italy, has come upon an entirely new idea about what causes MS and how to treat it. He found that scientists who had studied the brains of MS patients had noticed higher levels of iron in their brain, not accounted for by age. The iron deposits had a unique pattern, often forming in the core of the brain, clustered around the veins that normally drain blood from the head. No one had ever fully explained this phenomenon, considering the excess iron a toxic byproduct of the MS itself. Using Doppler ultrasound, Dr. Zamboni began examining the necks of MS patients and found that almost 100 percent of the patients had a narrowing, twisting or outright blockage of the veins that are supposed to flush blood from the brain. He then checked these veins in healthy people, and found none of these malformations. Nor did he find these blockages in those with other neurological conditions.

What was astounding was that not only was the blood not flowing out of the brain, it was “refluxing” or reversing and flowing back upwards. Zamboni dubbed the vein disorder he discovered CCSVI, or chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency, and began publishing his preliminary research in neurology journals. He soon found that the severity of the vein blockages corresponded to the severity of the patient’s symptoms. Patients with only one vein blocked usually had milder forms of the disease; those with two or more damaged veins had more severe illness.

If key veins of MS patients are blocked, perhaps we can open them and restore normal blood flow? Yes doctors use balloons to open up blocked arteries that feed blood from the heart but there are many natural treatments that can help, such as using niacin and different enzymes as well as removing the heavy-metal buildups with chelation.


[1] Cannabinoids are chemicals that are found naturally in Marijuana. Researchers believe that these naturally found cannabinoids could create immune suppression. Much like steroids, but with fewer side effects, cannabinoids can “switch off” a portion of the immune response and bring down inflammation and hyperactivity of immune cells, possibly preventing or slowing some of the damage caused to the myelin by immune cells. The cannabinoids do this by interacting with the receptors on specific immune cells.http://ms.about.com/b/2009/05/19/chemical-in-marijuana-to-slow-multiple-sclerosis.htm

[19] Magnesium ions constitute the physiologically active magnesium in the body; they are not attached to other substances and are free to join in biochemical body processes.5 This is one basic reason magnesium helps to detoxify toxic chemicals and helps eliminate heavy metals from the body. Another reason would be the part it plays in glutathione production but undoubtedly, as Dr. Haley indicates, the Mg-ATP provides the crucial energy to remove each toxicant. A magnesium ion is an atom that is missing two electrons, which makes it search to attach to something that will replace its missing electrons so it is actively and directly involved in diminishing heavy metal toxicity. Magnesium appears to be a competitive inhibitor of lead and cadmium. An increased level of magnesium has been shown to eliminate lead and cadmium through the urine and has also been reported to reduce the toxic effects of aluminum.

Cannabis Heals-And The Government Knows It!

Jack Herer

Jack Herer

The Truth About Hemp

(regardless of what this lying government says) 

In 1974, Virginia Medical College in Richmond, Virginia did research on tumors of the lung, brain, liver and kidney using mice and rats. Incredible things were done. The cancer stopped growing and in most cases even reversed itself 100 percent. Some of the mice who were given cancer and treated with cannabis actually lived longer than some of the control mice who were not even given cancer! It was found that marijuana is the best thing to treat cancer of the lungs, brain, etc. After that they were stopped from doing any more research at all, by first Nixon and then Ford. No research with positive results could be done, only research with negative results. That’s the way it’s been since 1975 until now, even though a 1999 marijuana study turned out to be positive also.

The Cholesterol Lie

Thank you to my friend Henry. He has a Health newsletter that he publishes by email. If you send a request he will probably add you to his email list if you ask nicely Let him know Ephraiyim from Iowa sent you…

HenryYahweh@aol.com

 This tidbit was in a recent one.

In 1913, two Russian researchers fed large amounts of cholesterol to a group of hungry rabbits. When they saw yellow gunk clogging the rabbits arteries, they leap to the conclusion that cholesterol must be responsible for coronary artery disease.

 

Robert Ford, as long ago as 1969, called the cholesterol theory of heart disease a tragic blunder. In a book called Stale Food vs. Fresh Food, he gave us some important information about the Russian experiment that had been overlooked. He wrote, ‘Their finding was one of those unfortunate half-truths which only served to mislead.’ In his commonsense way of looking at the cholesterol theory of heart disease, Ford said, ‘It is absurd to say that something we are largely made of would be harmful for us to eat.’

 

Ford explained that dietary cholesterol is harmful only if it is stale or rancid. When he read the original article by the Russians he was amazed to discover that they had fed their rabbits ‘pure crystalline cholesterol dissolved in vegetable oil’ to produce the cholesterol buildup in arteries. They didn’t stop to think that crystalline cholesterol is not something the body can use but is ‘an unnatural stale substance now known as oxycholesterol, which is not found in fresh food or in the healthy human body.’ Ford said the cholesterol theory is untrue and has served to deceive us by delaying discovery of the true causes and cures.

 

Udo Erasmus wrote an enlightening book about fats and oils called Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill. From his decades-long research he concludes, ‘The cholesterol scare is big business for doctors, laboratories, and drug companies. It is also a powerful marketing gimmick for vegetable oil and margarine manufacturers. In the end, cholesterol will be exonerated from its role as primary villain in cardiovascular disease. The accusing finger points at ‘experts’ who concocted the cholesterol theory to drum up business by spreading fear.’

Detroit SWAT team assaults African American mom

Detroit SWAT team assaults African American mom who refused to medicate her daughter with antipsychotic drugs

Friday, April 15, 2011
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com

(NaturalNews) The medical police state is alive and well in Detroit today, whereChild Protective Services(CPS) called in the police to aid in their kidnapping of a 13-year-old daughter from an African American mother who refused to medicate her with dangerous psychiatric drugs. As this case is clearly showing, refusing to medicate your children with Big Pharma‘s mind-altering drugs is now being treated as a felony crime.

Here are the facts of the case:

• Maryanne Godboldo is an African American mother of a teenager daughter. She lives in Detroit. (http://www.prisonplanet.com/swat-at…)

• Child Protective Services (CPS) personnel attempted to kidnap Maryanne’s 13-year-old daughter. They accused her of not giving her childpsychiatric medicationprescribed by her doctor.

• Maryanne says the medication causedside effectsin her daughter and made her condition worse, which is why she refused to give her daughter the medication.

• The medication wasRisperdal, a neuroleptic antipsychotic medication known for causing serious side effects such as abdominal pain, vomiting, aggression, anxiety, dizziness and lack of coordination (http://www.risperdalsideeffects.com).

Watch the true video of the shocking side effects of Risperdal here:http://www.naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=3…

See a complete list of side effects of psychiatric medications from CCHR:
http://www.cchr.org/sites/default/f…

• When Maryanne refused to let CPS take her daughter away, CPS personnel then called the police, who then smashed down her front door and attempted to raid her home to kidnap her daughter by force.

• The police did NOT have a warrant or any court documents whatsoever granting them any right to enter Maryanne’s home, according to Godboldo’s attorneys.

• Police say that after they smashed in the front door, Maryanne opened fire on them. (Who wouldn’t open fire on a group of armed assailants trying to kidnap their daughter, by the way?)

• A SWAT team was then called in, carrying semiautomatic rifles and sniper gear. A 12-hour standoff ensued.

• Maryanne eventually surrendered to the SWAT team, and the state took her daughter to a psychiatric hospital where she is now being molested by the staff there, her mother says.

• Maryanne Godboldo now faces multiple felony charges: firing a weapon in a dwelling, felonious assault, resisting and obstructing an officer, and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

• CPS lied about the child’s father’s ability to take care of her as a tactic to kidnap her from her mother.

• Community groups in Detroit are now rallying on behalf of the family there, shouting “Free Arianna” (the daughter).

Why Health Freedom is more important now than ever

What you are witnessing here with Maryanne Godboldo isthe tyranny of the medical police stateand the wicked criminality of Child Protective Services workers who are now front-line enforcers of Big Pharma’s deadly agenda to drug our children.

Make no mistake: What’s happening today is thatthe state is now breaking down the doors, assaulting, arresting and imprisoning parents who refuse to medicate their children. This is being accomplished with the use of armed force against innocent victims.

This unholy alliance between Big Pharma, CPS and the police has gone too far. It has becomethe weapon of medication compliance.

When medicine has become so dangerous, so forceful and so utterly harmful to the People that the state must use bullets and guns to force people to take it,you know it’s all gone way too far.

It makes you wonder: What kind of system of medicine is so bad that prescriptions have to beenforced at gunpoint?

That this is happening is not just an assault on Maryann Godboldo, butan assault on our rights and freedoms as sovereign human beings. Do we not have the right to say NO to a medication we don’t want our children to take? Do we not have the right to protect our children from kidnappers? Do we not have the right to use firearms in the defense and protection of our homes from armed invaders who are conspiring to kidnap our children?

The real criminals in this case are the CPS workers. They should be brought up on attempting kidnapping charges as well as a criminal conspiracy to commit kidnapping. The gun-toting cops who broke into Maryanne’s home and attempted to kidnap her daughter should be arrested and brought up on charges ofarmed robbery, breaking and entering and conspiracyto commit the felony crime of kidnapping.

And yet, instead, Maryanne is now facing multiple felony charges while the CPS criminals and cops who raided her home are charged with nothing.

Where is the justice in America today?How did medication become something to be enforced with bullets and SWAT teams? And more importantly,how far will this gobefore this tyranny ends?

Next, will they just line everybody up against a brick wall, and those who can’t produce a receipt for medication get a bullet in their heads?

Resistance is necessary to achieve freedom

I hope you see where this is headed. I’ve been warning you about this for years, urging you to resist the rise of the medical police state… warning you about what I called “gunpoint medicine” back in 2006 (http://www.naturalnews.com/019512.html).

Read about Daniel Hauser (http://www.naturalnews.com/026305.html), the gunpoint vaccinations in Maryland (http://www.naturalnews.com/022267.html), the jailing of Francisco Santos (http://www.naturalnews.com/021997.html) and the forced poisoning of Abraham Cherrix (http://www.naturalnews.com/019617.html) with toxic chemotherapy.

Learn the truth or you will surely be crushed by it. Big Pharma will stop at nothing to force their drugs onto your children. They will use guns, SWAT teams, kidnapping, the breaking down of your front door… anything it takes!

Researchers argue ‘addiction’ a poor way to understand the normal use of drugs

April 12th, 2011 in Medicine & Health / Other

A new review from UK and German researchers claims that the vast majority of people who routinely use drugs are using them to achieve their goals and cope better with the stresses of modern life.

Christian Muller and Gunter Schumann suggest that drugs, from and through to and even cocaine, can have ‘beneficial effects for an individual in modern environments’. They argue for an acknowledgment that typical, non-addicted use of drugs by many people improves their experience, behavior, or performance in various contexts such as career or social life. By accepting this reality, they suggest, drugs advice in schools and clinical settings can be made more realistic and effective.

Muller and Schumann acknowledge the risk that a fraction of users will become addicted or engage in risky drug related behavior but they advocate that giving realistic advice based on how the majority of people are using drugs would actually help to cut rates:

“A better understanding of the mechanisms of drug use in non-addicts might serve to better prevent the transition to drug addiction in the future.”

In the journal of Behavioral and Brain Sciences published by Cambridge University Press, Muller and Schumann’s article, ‘Drugs as instruments – a new framework for non-addictive psychoactive drug use’, introduces the concept that drugs are being routinely used by many as helpful ‘instruments’ in their lives.

After an exhaustive trawl of scores of studies into drug use, they claim that most regular consumers of drugs are not, and will never become, addicts. While considerable research effort has been made to understand drug addiction and how it develops, they write, there has been no similar attempt to research the beneficial effects of drugs on non-addicted users.

Presenting a new framework for non-addictive drug use, they list the advantages reported by people engaged in this behavior, including beneficial effects on mood enhancement, stress reduction, sociability, mental health, long-term cognitive functioning and work performance.

Muller and Schumann write: “We propose that the majority of non-addicted humans, who consume psychoactive drugs as a normal part of their life take drugs because their effects are useful for their personal goals. When it comes to using drugs or other stimulants as instruments, for example, most adults can drive a car un-drugged. However, after a long working day, having a last coffee to awake and refresh the mind may enable the driver to drive home more safely. In this case, caffeine is the instrument that improves the mental state.”

Muller and Schumann go on to suggest that a non-addictive use of drugs may have evolved to help the human race adapt to different aspects of life, and that we have learned to use drugs in ways that enhance our chances for survival and reproduction. Examples include alcohol helping a shy person overcome their shyness and initiate a sexual encounter, or amphetamines helping a tired student stay awake and study for crucial exams that will determine success in their professional life.

They also suggest that our modern environment demands that we constantly move between ‘microenvironments’ which require stressful rapid transitions:

“In fast-changing microenvironments, short transition times between mental states may be advantageous. We suggest [that] psychoactive drug use facilitates the transition between different mental states.”

For instance, drugs like alcohol, , amphetamine and ecstasy help us make the rapid transition from a work microenvironment to a social one: “alcohol reduces social inhibition, social anxiety, and increases talkativeness”. Similarly the demands of modern work microenvironments cause fatigue and declines in cognitive performance: “having the means to ‘artificially’ prolong performance may be a benefit”.

Acknowledging that their thesis has implications for drug policy, they suggest three new approaches:

a. For ‘drug naïve’ individuals, usually adolescent to early adult age, provide information not only on the adverse effects of addiction but also on how drugs are being successfully ‘instrumentalized’: “the goal should not be to prevent drug use in general, but to foster control over it by the individual.”

b. For people who have already integrated drugs in their life’s routines, emphasize the need to stay in control of drug use. In particular, during stressful periods of transition in life, there is an increased danger of developing new forms of drug instrumentalization. Education programms “should aim to train young people to self-analyze their drug instrumentalization”.

c. For people who are at risk of a transition to drug addiction, over-instrumentalization of drugs, and a dependence on the drug to achieve major goals in life, needs to be prevented. A drug-use ‘biography’ should be created predicting whether the user is likely to be able to maintain use of drugs to help with goals or lose control of their use.

Muller and Schumann admit that their ideas will be seen as controversial: “Although we argue for evolutionary benefits of non-addictive use, it has to be emphasized that the instrumentalization of psychoactive drugs comes at a price, which ultimately qualifies it as a risky behavior.”

With electronic contact lenses, bionic eyesight could become reality

Source: http://www.smartplanet.com/business/blog/smart-takes/with-electronic-contact-lenses-bionic-eyesight-could-become-reality/566/

By Andrew Nusca | Sep 2, 2009 |

A new generation ofcontact lenses built with tiny circuits and LEDs could make bionic eyesight a reality.

Researchers at the University of Washington in Seattle have created contact lenses with built-in electronics and an LED, powered wirelessly by RF.

“These lenses don’t give us the vision of an eagle or the benefit of running subtitles on our surroundings yet,” University of Washington professor Babak Parviz writes in IEEE Spectrum. “What we’ve done so far barely hints at what will soon be possible with this technology.”

While conventional contact lenses are polymers formed in various shapes to correct faulty vision, electronic contact lenses are far more “engineered.”

Parviz writes:

To turn such a lens into a functional system, we integrate control circuits, communication circuits, and miniature antennas into the lens using custom-built optoelectronic components. Those components will eventually include hundreds of LEDs, which will form images in front of the eye, such as words, charts, and photographs. Much of the hardware is semitransparent so that wearers can navigate their surroundings without crashing into them or becoming disoriented. In all likelihood, a separate, portable device will relay displayable information to the lens’s control circuit, which will operate the optoelectronics in the lens.

The potential for the development is far-reaching, from healthcare (noninvasive health indicators, such as reportingblood sugar levels for diabetic users) to computer gaming, translation to navigation.

Even the Internet is possible, Parviz writes:

“With basic image processing and Internet access, a contact-lens display could unlock whole new worlds of visual information, unfettered by the constraints of a physical display.”

But the initial road is for health purposes, such as the aformentioned biosensors:

Contact lenses are worn daily by more than a hundred million people, and they are one of the only disposable, mass-market products that remain in contact, through fluids, with the interior of the body for an extended period of time. When you get a blood test, your doctor is probably measuring many of the same biomarkers that are found in the live cells on the surface of your eye—and in concentrations that correlate closely with the levels in your bloodstream. An appropriately configured contact lens could monitor cholesterol, sodium, and potassium levels, to name a few potential targets. Coupled with a wireless data transmitter, the lens could relay information to medics or nurses instantly, without needles or laboratory chemistry, and with a much lower chance of mix-ups.

There are still hurdles. First, mass production has proved difficult, since the processes for building individual systems for the electronic contact lens are incompatible — they can’t be manufactured directly on the lens.

Second, all the key components of the lens need to be miniaturized and integrated onto just 1.5 square centimeters of a flexible, transparent polymer.

Finally, the entire device needs to be safe for the eye — difficult, since most red LEDs are made of a toxic material.

The team has produced lenses that can accommodate an 8-by-8 array of LED, but Parviz writes that the team is already looking into using passive pixels, which would significantly reduce power draw.

 


Chocolate Lovers Rejoice! Cocoa-Rich Treat Is HEALTHIER Than Fruit, Say Scientists

Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1354426/Chocolate-lovers-rejoice-Cocoa-treat-healthy-fruit-claim-scientists.html#ixzz1DZ2ypp1k

Last updated at 1:16 AM on 8th February 2011

It is the news that chocoholics have been waiting for: chocolate has been classed as a superfood.

Research shows that dark chocolate is richer in health-boosting antioxidants than juices made from blueberries, cranberries and other so-called  ‘superfruits’.

And although strictly speaking cocoa comes from a seed rather than a fruit, the  researchers say that should not stop one of our favourite sweet treats from  joining the legions of superfruits.

A study has found chocolate can contain as many antioxidants as fruit. However, adding sugar and milk to a bar will dilute the benefits 

British experts said that while US chocolate company Hershey may have ulterior  motives for doing the study, a little of what we fancy is unlikely to do us too much harm.

Scientists at Hershey’s centre for health and nutrition compared the amount of  antioxidants in a blueberry, cranberry, pomegranate and acai fruit juices.

Levels in 40g bars of dark chocolate and in mugs of cocoa and drinking  chocolate were also analysed.

The small bars of dark chocolate came out top in all the tests, the Chemistry  Central Journal reports.

Cocoa and dark chocolate triumphed in tests for flavanols, an antioxidant  family credited with feats from preventing wrinkles to cutting the risk of  heart disease.

Drinking chocolate, however, came last in all the tests, likely due to the  antioxidants being stripped out during processing.

Dr Debra Miller, the study’s senior author, said that we need to look  past ‘macronutrients’ like fat and protein when assessing the nutritional value of chocolate.

She said: ‘Cocoa powder provides nutritive value beyond that derived from its  macronutrient composition.

‘Cocoa seeds should be considered a “superfruit” and products derived from  cocoa seed extracts, such as natural cocoa powder and dark chocolate as  “superfoods”.’

Other recent research has shown that just a chunk of dark chocolate a day could  cut the risk of heart disease by up to a third.

Just 6.7g a day, or a quarter of an ounce, proved optimum for heart health.

Researchers have even gone as far as to claim that the smell of chocolate alone  can protect against colds.

But, sadly for chocolate lovers, the treat’s high fat and sugar content means  dieticians recommend it is eaten as part of a balanced diet, rich in less  appealing foods such a brown rice, pulses and fruit and vegetables.

Tam Fry, of the National Obesity Forum, described the latest research as  ‘a bit of fun’.

He added: ‘It may be that dark chocolate does have more antioxidants than some  terrific-sounding fruits.

‘It is a case of everything in moderation.’

Underreported hospital delirium is on the rise

Saturday, January 29, 2011 by: Lindsay Chimileski , citizen journalist

(NaturalNews) Although malpractice and missing sponges have become somewhat silently accepted by the medical community there is a new alarming risk on the rise, Hospital Delirium. Hospital Delirium results from the combination of an unnatural environment, sleep deprivation and medications. It poses a silent threat to the health of all hospital patients, especially the elderly. Patients report experiencing zombie attacks, alien invasion, and other paranoid hallucinations. It may sound like a strange science fiction nightmare but in reality it occurs in up to 1/3 of the hospitalized geriatric population.

Hospital delirium is marked by an inability to think clearly, disorientation, alertness fluctuations, hallucinations, and paranoia. It is usually sudden and can progress over hours or days. Hospital delirium is more prevalent and poses a greater risk for the geriatric population. In the allopathic medical system, the elderly are expected to be senile and disoriented. Because of this false expectation, patients experiencing hospital delirium are often dismissed as “normal aging” and ignored. Delirium and disorientation are not a part of the natural healing process and should always be observed as a warning sign. Mental status changes often indicate serious turns in medical conditions and should not be overlooked.

The official cause of hospital delirium is undefined but the triggers are everywhere in the hospital atmosphere. Patients are placed in an unfamiliar and uncomfortable environment. They are usually suffering from dehydration, malnutrition, infection and/or anxiety. Patients can also be left feeling vulnerable due to the removal of their glasses or dentures. On top of that, add Pandora’s Box of drugs and medications, especially sedatives.

Hospital delirium is the consequence of violating the simplest of nature’s laws and preventing the body from getting real, good ol’ fashioned sleep. Studies prove that disruption of sleep may contribute to delirium and cognitive dysfunction in ICU patients. Staff monitoring and unnatural lighting prevent proper rest. This is especially true when deprived of sensory stimulation in units without windows, such as Intensive Care Units. Hospitals are now beginning to recognize the importance of adjusting light cycles to sync with the body’s innate circadian rhythm and sleep wake cycle.

Sleep allows the body to repair and restores the brain. It primes the brain for all the new knowledge it will acquire in the following day. Sleep distribution and sedation are linked as important factors because of their shared effects on memory. Interruption of this process, in combination with baseline vulnerability and other hospital triggers, provides the perfect cocktail for delirium.

Hospital delirium is now found to have some lasting effects. Due to complications and postponed surgeries, hospital stays are on average six days longer when patients experienced delirium. Delirium patients have a three times higher risk of death in six months. Hospital delirium can also be responsible for the premature placement of patients in short or long term care, such as nursing homes.

Hospital delirium is finally being recognized but the current statistics are still vastly under estimated. Most practitioners avoid the use of the term delirium and use synonyms like confusion or agitation instead. Although hospital delirium can cause outbursts and aggressive behavior, it can also silently occur in patients who appear to be resting quietly. Patients can become too paranoid to speak or share their hallucinations, so they suffer in silence and their experience goes unreported.

Although the public knows little of the issue, many hospitals are acknowledging the problem and initiating new natural protocols including massage and meditation. When hospital stays are unavoidable, awareness and familial support are the best ways to protect yourself and loved ones.

Bill Gates wants to register all new babies on the planet for vaccines

SOURCE: http://www.naturalnews.com/031031_Bill_Gates_vaccines.html#ixzz1BLCRv3Ym

vaccines Monday, January 17, 2011 by: David Gutierrez, staff writer
(NaturalNews) Bill Gates is promoting a plan to use wireless technology to register every newborn on the planet in a vaccine database. 

In a keynote address to the mHealth Summit, which focuses on using mobile technology to improve health care, Gates said that improving survival rates among children under the age of 5 would benefit not just individual families, but societies and the planet as a whole.

“The key thing, the most important fact that people should know and make sure other people know: As you save children under 5, that is the thing that reduces population growth,” he said. “That sounds paradoxical. The fact is that within a decade of improving health outcomes, parents decide to have less children.”

The number of children who die before their fifth birthday has already dropped from 20 million in 1960 to 8.5 million today, a statistic Gates attributes mostly to vaccination.

“About one-third [of that improvement] is by increasing income,” Gates said. “The majority has been through vaccines. Vaccines will be the key. If you could register every birth on a cell phone— get fingerprints, get a location — then you could [set up] systems to make sure the immunizations happen.”

Gates suggested using cell phones to record each birth and send the information, including biometric identifiers, to a central database. This database would then send reminders to parents’ phones when it was time to come in for vaccines or other treatments. He said a prime location to implement such programs would be northern Nigeria or northern India, where vaccination rates are less than 50 percent.

Acknowledging that registering every single birth has never been done before, Gates called for “1,000 new ideas” to “blossom” in order to make it happen.

Such ideas could conceivably involve using the GPS devices inside phones to physically track parents who do not bring their children in for vaccines.

Gates also called for use of mobile technology to implement more continuous monitoring of vaccine supply chains.

(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.

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.
