Jab that could put a stop to stress without slowing us down
Vaccines: Dr Robert Sapolsky, professor of neuroscience at Stanford University in California, believes it is possible to alter brain chemistry to create a state of 'focused calm'.
A Possible Vaccine Has Sparked a Debate Across the Health Establishment and Conspiracy Theorists
Vaccines: The theory, as described by Paul Joseph Watson at Prison Planet (Establishment Media Pushes Brain Eating Vaccines), is that the "media establishment", in conjunction with various world governments is planning to promote a vaccine that reduce stress and produce a state of calm...The vaccine, whether accurately described as 'brain eating vaccines' or not, is merely the latest instance of the ethical dilemmas that increasingly appear as medicine and technology race ahead of people's ability to process and understand the unintended consequences.
Talking to Friends About Vaccines - Dangerous?
Vaccines/Propaganda: According to WebMD, it’s likely. The site recently quoted the chief of the California Department of Health’s infectious disease center as saying that the pattern of outbreaks matches with counties – for example Marin County north of San Francisco – where more parents refuse vaccines.
Being Healthy is Becoming a Recognized Mental Illness
Medical Establishment: "Refusing to touch sugar, salt, caffeine, alcohol, wheat, gluten, yeast, soya, corn and dairy foods is just the start of their diet restrictions. Any foods that have come into contact with pesticides, herbicides or contain artificial additives are also out." There is an increasing number of such 'mentally ill' people, who do not wish to consume pesticides and artificial additives, and other food items which have been shown to be damaging to health. Yes, we're all crazy.
"Second Hand" Chemo?
Medical Establishment: The toxicity of chemotherapy has long been ignored by virtually everyone in medicine and the federal government. It has always been assumed to be “safe” just because it’s used as a kind of far-fetched “medicine” to treat cancer. This is a lie. The truth is that chemo is toxic, carcinogenic (causes cancer), destroys erythrocytes (red blood cells), devastates the immune system, and kills vital organs...There’s nothing like cancer-causing chemotherapy to boost repeat business, huh?
Urgent - SB 510 Will Allow Government to Put You in Jail for Growing,Sharing, Trading and Sharing Homegrown Food
Tainted Food: S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010
http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s111-510, may be the
most dangerous bill in the history of the US...Monsanto's Michael Taylor who gave us rBGH and unregulated genetically modified (GM) organisms, appears to have designed it and is waiting as an appointed Food Czar to the FDA (a position unapproved by Congress) to administer the agency it would create -- without judicial review -- if it passes. S 510 would give Monsanto unlimited power over all US seed, food supplements, food AND FARMING.
My Bologna Has a First Name, It's C-A-N-C-E-R
Tainted Food: The World Cancer Research fund already found nitrate consumption may lead to colon cancer, but a new US study shows a "positive nonlinear association for red meat cold cuts" and bladder cancer.

Government Wants Your Individual Obesity Rating By 2014
Medical Establishment: All Americans, by 2014 will be required to have an individual obesity rating electronically recorded. It has been determined that under the new health stimulus law passed by President Barack Obama recently, that all Americans, by 2014, will be required to have electronic health records which will include their height, weight and body mass index (BMI).
Soy Protein Used in "Natural" Foods Bathed in Toxic Solvent Hexane
Tainted Food: Virtually all “protein bars” on the market today are made with soy protein. Many infant formula products are also made with soy protein, and thousands of vegetarian products (veggie burgers, veggie cheese, “natural” food bars, etc.) are made with soy protein. That soy protein is almost always described as safe and “natural” by the companies using it. But there’s a dirty little secret the soy product industry doesn’t want you to know: Much of the “natural” soy protein used in foods today is bathed in a toxic, explosive chemical solvent known as hexane.
Two-step vaccine may offer "universal" flu jab
Eugenics: A two-step flu vaccine using DNA to "prime" the immune system and then a traditional seasonal influenza vaccine may be able to protect against all strains of the virus -- providing a long-sought "universal" flu vaccine, U.S. researchers said on Thursday. Just shut your eyes and ignore the documented link between vaccines, inflammation, and neurologic injury...
Antidepressant drug linked to increase in breast cancer deaths
Big Pharma: Women who take the antidepressant Paxil (paroxetine) while undergoing some breast cancer treatments are significantly more likely to die than women who do not take the antidepressant, according to a study...
Calls growing for the removal of a common poison put in Irish drinking water
Ecohazards: Published in the peer-reviewed journal Toxicology, Dr. Robert Verkerk said "mass fluoridation of the public water supply must be stopped immediately. This is borne out by actual data from Ireland which shows that every third child is affected by a high risk of dental fluorosis."

Avandia: A Case Study in Big Pharma-FDA Collusion
Big Pharma: Pharmaceutical manufacturer SmithKline Beecham, now GlaxoSmithKline, found in a 1999 study that its diabetes medicine, Avandia, posed serious heart attack risks — then buried the study for the next 11 years, according to the New York Times, which recently obtained documents related to the study and the cover-up. The reason for the cover-up was simple: Had the risks of the drug become public, it could have cost the company “$600 million from 2002 to 2004 alone.”
California Department of Public Health now recommending Pertussis vaccine during pregnancy
Vaccines: Marin county has been disproportionated affected by the pertussis epidemic, most likely due to the high rate of vaccine refusal [sic]. Sanofi Pasteur, the manufacturer of the booster (ADACEL), often called the Tdap (it provides a booster against three different bacteria: tetanus, diptheria, and pertussis) have always stated the vaccine is safe in pregnancy. Smells like propaganda...
Sanofi Pasteur Wants Liability Protection for Vaccinating Pregnant Women
Vaccines: 2008 Redux - Sanofi Pasteur is concerned about the “legal issue of vaccinating while pregnant” and feels it is “important to keep non-negligence issues” out of the tort system. You don't say.

Dr. Joseph Mercola Stresses Artificial Sweetener Killing Americans
Tainted Food: Aspartame: The Pentagon listed it as a biochemical warfare agent, and the FDA gave its approval as a sweetener used in over 6,000 foods. Its producers, Ajinomoto, have rebranded the artificial sweetener several times (most recently dubbed “AminoSweet”) in an effort to advertise it as a natural, harmless substance. Nonetheless there have been over 10,000 official complaints to the FDA about aspartame reactions.
Bioidentical Hormones and Medical Ghostwriting, the Latest Scandal
Medical Establishment: Linda cheerfully made an appointment to see her OB Gyne doctor thinking he would gladly prescribe bioidentical hormones. To her dismay, Linda's doctor was not at all pleased when she raised the topic. Her doctor scowled and said, "those aren't any good", and besides, "there is no evidence that bioidentical hormones are any safer than synthetics"...A few days later, Linda was sitting in my office asking, "Why is my doctor opposed to bioidentical hormones?"
Cancer survivors have higher death risk for decades
Medical Establishment: People who survive cancer in childhood have a heightened risk of dying of a heart attack, stroke or another cancer decades later -- a risk that is likely to be due to the original treatment, scientists said on Tuesday.

Water Bottles Can Kill
Ecohazards: Women should not drink bottled water that has been left out in a car or in extreme heat. The heat reacts with the chemicals in the plastic which releases dioxin into the water. Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue. Why has the FDA not required companies to put warning labels on their bottles? Or better yet, make a mandatory change to discontinue plastic?
Toxicologist: Oil/Corexit mix caused heart trouble, organ damage, rectal bleeding
Ecohazards: Shrimpers who were exposed to a mixture of oil and Corexit dispersant in the Gulf of Mexico suffered severe symptoms such as muscle spasms, heart palpitations, headaches that last for weeks and bleeding from the rectum, according to a marine toxicologist who issued the warning Friday on a cable news network.
A truly toxic issue
Ecohazards: Modern life is saturated with carcinogenic chemicals. But without regulation, just how are we supposed to avoid them?
Cooling the Brain for its Own Good
Medical Establishment: Doctors have known for centuries that controlled cooling can save certain patients from death or brain damage -- during heart operations, after strokes, even after spinal injuries. German surgeons have found success in cooling some at-risk patients to alarmingly low temperatures. For some pharmaceutical companies, though, it's too low-tech.

Madhouse Medical Tyranny: When Health Becomes Sickness
Medical Establishment: Dictatorships know that the battle for complete control is ultimately won or lost in the minds of the target population. As the oppression advances, it tends to move from propaganda mind control to the direct intervention into the mind via pharmaceuticals. We are now seeing the overt global coordination of the psychiatry profession to convince every resident of planet Earth that all clear thinking, healthy living, and wholesome innocence is some kind of disorder that needs to be corrected (suppressed) with drugs to render zombie-like those whose instincts afford them the ability of discernment.
Toxicologists: Corexit "Ruptures Red Blood Cells, Causes Internal Bleeding", Allows Crude Oil To Penetrate "Into the Cells" and "Every Organ System"
Ecohazards: Corexit is toxic, is less effective than other dispersants, and is actually worsening the damage caused by the oil spill. Now, two toxicologists are saying that Corexit is much more harmful to human health and marine life than we've been told.
Gardasil May Increase Risk of Cervical Cancer
Vaccines: If you have been exposed to HPV 16 or 18 prior to injection and take the vaccine, you increase your risk of precancerous lesions, or worse, by 44.6%...This information is especially timely as Gardasil is now being promoted for older women.
Canada Knocks Out Flu, U.S. Public Kept In The Dark
Vaccines: Canada the last four years totaled sixteen "flu-associated" fatalities for their paediatric age category, defined as everybody under 18, and this included all H1N1 and seasonal cases. Three-quarters of these deaths had severe and chronic underlying health conditions, as did the mortality of a similar percentage of adults over 18...Importantly, this has taken place with 60% (or more) of their paediatric group remaining unvaccinated.

Choosing healthy foods now called a mental disorder
Medical Establishment: In its never-ending attempt to fabricate “mental disorders” out of every human activity, the psychiatric industry is now pushing the most ridiculous disease they’ve invented yet: Healthy eating disorder, "orthorexia". "Orthorexics commonly have rigid rules around eating. Refusing to touch sugar, salt, caffeine, alcohol, wheat, gluten, yeast, soya, corn and dairy foods is just the start of their diet restrictions. Any foods that have come into contact with pesticides, herbicides or contain artificial additives are also out."
Toxins Found in Whales Bode Ill for Humans
Ecohazards: Sperm whales feeding even in the most remote reaches of Earth’s oceans have built up stunningly high levels of toxic and heavy metals, according to American scientists who say the findings spell danger not only for marine life but for the millions of humans who depend on seafood.
UK Doctors call for total NHS ban on homoeopathy
Alternative Health: The increasingly vocal dissent follows a report from MPs on the influential science and technology select committee earlier this year, which also urged the NHS to cease funding homoeopathic treatments due to "a clear absence of scientific proof about its efficacy" Patient Helen Llewelyn: "To say that funding for homoeopathy on the NHS is a waste is extremely short-sighted. It will save thousands on useless medicines. More importantly, it saved my life."
Parents seek answers after children sickened by vaccines
Vaccines: "We want the ministry to find out exactly who is responsible for these dead and sick children," said Yi Wenlong, the father of 15-year-old Yi Lingling, who was diagnosed with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis after receiving the A and C groups of the meningitis vaccine at her school in Linfen, Shanxi Province in December 2006.

New GMO Food Additives To Be Introduced Without Full Safety Appraisal
GMO: The two GMO food additives FSC Expert Committee judged as safe are L-Glutamic Acid Sodium (GLU-No. 2 strain) and Aspartame-L-Fenylalanin (PHA-No. 2 strain). In the current food-labelling legislation, the former would be labelled only as “amino acid, and others” and would be used as a food additive in many foods. The latter would be labelled only as Aspartame which is classified as an artificial sweetener. None of these will need to be labelled as GMO or otherwise identified as genetically modified under the current rules.
Artificial Sweeteners are Continually Found to be Unsafe and Toxic
Tainted Food: A recent study presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Nephrology in San Diego found that adult women who drink at least two diet sodas a day experience a 30 percent drop in kidney function over the course of a decade. Findings indicate that artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose are the culprits in the rapid degeneration of glomerular filtration rates in the kidneys of those consuming excessive amounts of artificially-sweetened diet sodas.
FDA, mercury not affected by Obama's 'change'
Ecohazards: While Obama's FDA under Hamburg and Sharfstein defend a 19th-century mercury product, the rest the world took another step forward this week in Geneva. The World Health Organization committed to a worldwide "phase down" of amalgam. So now we have the specter of an internationalist president pledging to reduce all mercury, the world's leading health body supporting the reduction of amalgam in particular - and the FDA granting carte blanche to Schein and other mercury sellers to market amalgam to American families without even disclosing that it's mainly mercury, not mainly silver.

Gardasil Researcher Drops A Bombshell
Vaccines: Dr. Harper explained that 70 percent of all HPV infections resolve themselves without treatment within a year. Within two years, the number climbs to 90 percent. Of the remaining 10 percent of HPV infections, only half will develop into cervical cancer, which leaves little need for the vaccine...“It is silly to mandate vaccination of 11 to 12 year old girls,” she said at the time. “There also is not enough evidence gathered on side effects to know that safety is not an issue.”
Health study links mobile phone use to four kinds of cancer
Ecohazards: The research, which has taken 10 years and cost £20million, found that heavy mobile users suffered up to 50 per cent more tumours. Scientists now say there is a "significantly increased risk" of people developing three different kinds of brain tumour and one of the salivary gland.

A War is against Your Immune System, Part I
Vaccines: Is it a stretch to speculate that the coming swine flu vaccinations will be the actual trigger for the mother of all flu pandemics? Could we have a chain reaction that would be falsely attributed as part of the swine flu pandemic, justifying more forced vaccinations? Using live attenuated viruses from infected monkey and other mammalian organs, in addition to other toxic vaccine ingredients, presents this disturbing possibility.

Social Utility: How Much Are Grandpa and Grandma Worth? – Dr. Russell Blaylock
Medical Industry: The American gnostic elite have chosen negative euthanasia as the system that will be most accepted by the people, the masses. The mechanism for this mode of killing is rationing of health care. It is ironic that during this debate on national socialist health care many vocal defenders deny that the administration wants to kill anyone, yet if we read the words of those who designed this plan, that is exactly what they say.
Children Who Get the Flu Vaccine Have Three Times Risk Of Hospitalization For Flu, Study Suggests

Doctors on lookout for Guillain-Barré symptoms in swine flu patients
Vaccines: Doctors treating swine flu patients have been instructed to monitor the incidence of a rare nerve disease that has been linked to the body’s immune response to flu-like illnesses. Neurologists will study the occurence of Guillain-Barré syndrome, which affects the nervous system and can cause temporary paralysis, during the swine flu pandemic and vaccination programme.
Is Aspartame About to Be Banned?
Tainted Food: One of the most worrying of these studies was published in 2006. Performed by the European Ramazzini Foundation in Italy, it discovered that long-term ingestion of aspartame in rats increased their risk of several different forms of cancer...In the light of this sort of evidence, how is it still OK for aspartame to be sold and therefore eaten by men, women, pregnant women, children, and developing fetuses? Because our regulatory authorities say it’s OK, that’s why.
Sugar and sugar substitutes are making us sick
Tainted Food: Alternative sweeteners have been in and out of our grocery stores for decades, many creating deleterious effects worse than sugar itself.

Americans are Victims of Undeclared War that Makes Universal Healthcare Unaffordable
Medical Industry: most Americans are currently nowhere near a state of vibrant health. This is partly their fault in failing to take responsibility for keeping themselves healthy. But the greater fault lies in the fact that Americans have been victims of an ongoing undeclared war by their government and corporate leaders who have conspired to keep them in a state of disease.
Tricked by grilled chicken - MSG linked to obesity
Tainted Food: Studies on animals have long indicated that the use of glutamates leads directly to weight gain. Since in the industrialized world MSG use goes hand-in-hand with the consumption of processed food, it has been problematic to isolate the effects of MSG from that of starch, sugar, trans-fats, and HFCS.

Top 6 Ways to Identify Genetically Modified Foods
GMO's: Look at the stickers on fruit – there is a PLU code with either 4 or 5 numbers. If your fruit’s label has 4 numbers, it is conventionally grown. 5 numbers starting with a 9 means it was organically grown, and 5 numbers starting with an 8 means GMO.
GMO Scandal: The Long Term Effects of Genetically Modified Food on Humans
GMO's: One of the great mysteries surrounding the spread of GMO plants around the world since the first commercial crops were released in the early 1990’s in the USA and Argentina has been the absence of independent scientific studies of possible long-term effects of a diet of GMO plants on humans or even rats. Now it has come to light the real reason. The GMO agribusiness companies like Monsanto, BASF, Pioneer, Syngenta and others prohibit independent research.
