What does the California Drought and Forced Vaccination have in Common?

 Thursday, 18 June 2015

Today I received a message from a friend of mine that pulled a bunch of dots together for me.   Gotta love those dots, hiding right out in the open for us to see!

A mom who is following the SB 277 vax bill in CA told another mom I know that the reason that the bill is inexplicably steamrollering through the CA legislature right now is that the Feds are offering CA some huge drought relief $$$$ if CA passes the vax bill.

The main stream media have been pounding us with “drought in California” stories for a LONG time.  Continuously pushing onto the public the extreme “dire nature” of the drought for farms and cities.   Water rationing is announced for the public…. yet Nestle and Starbucks can continue to pull as much water from the system that they like?  Certain “cash crops” – like almond farms- are also being left out of the rationing equation.  Yet orange farms have been abandoned to die?  Very strange, don’t you think?   (my first question:  who owns the almond farms?).  Last night on Transpicuous News I talked about about this, as an article came by that really was an oddball for the site that it appeared on.  The article was about the California drought, but focused on the financial ramifications, the sale of houses as people flee, etc….

Then this message I just received arrived in my skype…..

Ahhhhh!  That actually makes a lot of sense now!   They (“THEY”) need to fast track their forced vaccination bill through.  So They (“THEY”), are blackmailing the public AND the local government.  Build up the fear porn to epic levels- you know, that horrific drought, and the terrifying measles outbreak that took….. zero lives- pump it through the media like shock and awe tactics use in any psyop program……  Then place the legislation on the table.

Forced vaccinations, or you don’t get any “drought relief”.

Same ol’ template.

For now, I’m searching for more information on this- so far, it’s just rumour…. hearsay.   But thta doesn’t mean that it’s not true.   We’ve seen this all happen before, and know the lines by heart.

Below is another story that I came across while looking for further info.  Again, an old hat.  They (“THEY”) have been perfecting this method of mass sterilisation for decades.   Started off small if far away countries, where the people are very poor and will gladly line up for some free health care….. where communities are cut off from the outside world by lack of basic communications…..

This isn’t new…. but it’s TIME for people stand up and take notice!!!

Fast and Furious, fast tracking SB 277, forced sterilization and the death of Paul Walker

A former official with the Philippine government’s population control organization has released an official medical report affirming that Filipina women were injected with sterilizing agents without their knowledge or consent.
Antonio (Sonny) de los Reyes served from 1978 to 1982 in a number of Philipino population control agencies. He was in Toronto recently to attend meetings of a Catholic charismatic prayer group.
Mr. De los Reyes, 52, served as executive director of the Commission on Population, the body coordinating the Philippine government’s population policy. He was forced out after criticizing the government for targeting the poor in its population control efforts.
Although reinstated in 1986, De los Reyes refused to go back to his old position and instead devoted his life to speaking out against anti-population schemes. Today, de los Reyes is national president of the Council of Philippine Laity. The council came to international attention when it uncovered evidence of a widespread sterilization program aimed at young Filipina women.
Advertised as a national vaccination effort, the program involved the lacing of anti-tetanus toxoids with a sterilizing chemical known as HCG. Thousands of Filipino women between the ages of 15 and 45 were inoculated by the tainted vaccines. Only through the efforts of Catholic church organizations was the tainted vaccine brought to public attention”
AP40590256290-1-632x450 (1)
Paul Walker carried out charitable acts and he made a point to do them under the radar. He was the founder of Reach Out Worldwide, a disaster-relief nonprofit. He had first hand information about something huge and as nefarious as all hell. Paul Walker and his friend were killed shortly after they discovered a conspiracy to supply victims of Typhon Haiyan with a prototype permanent birth control drug hidden in the vaccines being distributed as medicinal supplies along with food aid. They had a damning recording and they were on their way to rendezvous with an ally who would have helped them get in touch with the right people. Turns out they were betrayed and someone either rigged the car with the “Boston Brakes”, the car was hit by a drone strike or rigged with a bomb. Flames would typically be expected where the engine is in the rear of the car, but the fire in the front reinforces the theory of a fluid leak. However, officials later said that there was no evidence of a fluid leak.
In 1990 Fr. Anthony Fontegh was murdered in cold blood for allegedly speaking out against similar questionable vaccines on young girls masterminded from abroad. Similar claims were made in 2004 during a Nigerian polio vaccine programme. We know too well that these blatant evils are being sponsored and launched by some Western agents, companies and states that care very little about human life in Africa.
The trouble began in Kenya when the Catholic hierarchy became suspicious of a vaccine targeting women between 14 and 49 years that excluded boys and men. The bishops wondered why the campaign was being done clandestinely and in questionable phases.
Kenyan women were injected with a tetanus vaccine corded with Beta–HCG to cause infertility and miscarriages. The Bishops of Kenya issued a courageous statement exposing this secret sterilization program disguised as a tetanus vaccine.
The Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops ended up calling upon all Kenyans to avoid the tetanus vaccination campaign laced with Beta-HCG, because they were convinced that it was indeed a disguised population control program. As a result, they were locked in a heated battle with the Kenyan Health Ministry  over the safety of a tetanus vaccine that was being administered to women in the country. Although the government, UNICEF and the World Health Organization have all said that the vaccine is safe, the country’s Catholic leaders say they have proof that the doses given to Kenyan women were”laced” with a fertility-inhibiting hormone.
Now fast forward to California present day where most being completely acquiescent to tyrannical edicts that defy logic, question not why Tetanus, although not a communicable disease, still remains a required component of the immunization battery for 7th grade school entry.
It is precisely because the tetanus toxoid is the ideal carrier for beta HCG-the sterilant. We all know what happens to 7th graders before the 8th grade year, it is the onset of sexual maturity. California’s SB 277, forced vaccinations, is merely setting up the framework for clandestine forced sterilization. This has been done before, tested thoroughly and will be implemented unless people wake up and get mad as hell.
Your children are slated for a future that involves medically induced illness as well as having no children of their own. Well that is of course the case unless you simply refuse to go along with this eugenics agenda by simply refusing all vaccines.
The real reason that none of this makes any sense is because there is an agenda, and to those involved, it makes perfect sense. The vaccine inserts clearly state that none of these vaccines have been tested for impairment of fertility, none of them.
 “Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility”-
Tripedia vaccine has not been evaluated for its carcinogenic or mutagenic potentials or impairment of fertility. 
Tetanus is not a communicable disease. The average 20th century annual morbidity for Tetanus was 580.The average 20th century annual morbidity for smallpox was 29,000. Ironically, The reality is that oral exposure to C. tetani has been found to build resistance to tetanus without carrying the risk of disease. The tetanus toxin, called tetanospasmin, is produced by numerous C. tetani bacterial strains. C. tetaninormally live in animal intestines, notably in horses, without causing tetanus to their intestinal carriers. These bacteria require anaerobic (no oxygen) conditions to be active, whereas in the presence of oxygen they turn into resilient but inactive spores, which do not produce the toxin. It has been recognized that inactive tetanus spores are ubiquitous in the soil. We breathe and eat them. We have natural immunity if we are properly nourished and spend plenty of time outdoors. That is precisely why the annual morbidity figures for tetanus have been so low, that it has no business being a required vaccine.
It has been demonstrated that serum antitoxin has failed to prevent severe tetanus even in the amounts 2,500 times higher than what is considered sufficient for tetanus prevention in adults. TETANUS VACCINATIONS MAKE NO SENSE UNLESS THERE IS ANOTHER REASON FOR THEM.
How did smallpox disappear in the US without the smallpox vaccine remaining in the current schedule? Why do we require a tetanus vaccine which, by the way, is not EVEN A COMMUNICABLE DISEASE for school entry and not a smallpox vaccine? Why do we administer Diptheria, Tetanus and Pertussis at the same time?
Tetanus vaccine is part of the DTap vaccine given to children. Tetanus vaccine is part of the Tdap vaccine given to junior high students. Tetanus vaccine contains the tetanus toxoid. This is extremely important as you will see at the end of the article.
These people are simply not human. They are utilitarian and knowingly or unknowingly serving the eugenicists interests.

The behavior of our elected representatives with a handful of exceptions, is Orwellian to the core. Invoking The parens patriae doctrine, we have Senate Judiciary testimony taking parental rights down to the mat in a choke hold. This law is clearing hurdles faster that you can keep up with it. SB 277 is on a fast track and your children will be sterilized unless you wake up. 
No matter how you feel about vaccinations, the words of CA senator Wieckowski from the SB277 judiciary committee hearing seem surreal and are cause for alarm if you value civil liberties. To quote him talking about various court cases: “The police power of the state..has absolute authority to force that person (even adults) to get the vaccination….We undervalue our power–the state police power. If we believe that children are being harmed, we go into this domain of family rights, which are not absolute, and my question is: maybe we are not going far enough?”
These people are not ignorant, or uninformed. To the contrary, they have pledged an allegiance to a power structure, which is satanic to the core. SB 277 is not about public health. There is no communicable disease public health crisis ladies and gentlemen. SB 277 is about eugenics.
SB 277 is not about big pharma’s balance sheets or medical system’s profit taking although it will be a tremendous boon to the industries.
SB 277 is not about mere political payback for campaign contributions. It is not about doing what is best for the young, the old or the most vulnerable among us.
SB 277 IS ABOUT STERILIZING CHILDREN AND ESTABLISHING PRECEDENT AND SETTING UP THE FRAMEWORK TO INJECT US ALL WITH STERILANTS, CANCER VIRUSES, CHEMICALS, AND HORMONES IN ORDER TO CONTROL AND CULL THE POPULATION.
HERE IS THE TRUTH ABOUT OVERPOPULATION. Census Bureau: 94.6 Percent of U.S. Is Rural Open Space-
images (100)
SO WHY ALL THIS TALK ABOUT OVERPOPULATION?
WHY THE PUSH TO CULL US WHEN THERE IS EMPTY LAND FROM HERE TO KINGDOM COME?

-BECAUSE THE MOAT AROUND THE CASTLE DOESN’T WORK WITH 6 BILLION PEOPLE ANYMORE.

images
HERE IS THE TRUTH ABOUT SB 277-
IT IS ALL ABOUT FORCED VACCINATIONS AND FORCED STERILIZATION
WHY IS A TETANUS SHOT REQUIRED FOR SCHOOL ENTRY WHEN IT IS NOT A COMMUNICABLE DISEASE? BECAUSE THE TETANUS TOXOID IS ONE OF THE BEST CARRIER COMPOUNDS FOR THE STERILIZING HORMONES! WHY DO THEY REQUIRE PUBESCENT CHILDREN TO RECEIVE THE Tdap SHOT BEFORE ENTERING JUNIOR HIGH? GEE I WONDER. BY THE WAY, PERTUSSIS TOXOID AND DIPTHERIA VACCINE WORK PRETTY WELL AS A CARRIER FOR BETA HCG AS WELL. IT IS NO ACCIDENT THESE THREE ARE ALL TOGETHER IN ONE JAB.

EPA Allows Monsanto’s Glyphosate Herbicide At Levels 60 Times Higher Above Toxic Exposure For Canola, Soy, Sunflower, Flax and Peanuts

http://ifttt.com/images/no_image_card.png

Are we starting to come full circle to the reality that we can no longer trust big agriculture or our food industry for responsible policies and procurement? Last month the EPA let Monsanto raise the allowable concentrations of glyphosate on food crops, animal feed, and edible oils. The new regulation lets farmers use more of the chemical, which is the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup. Oilseed crops such as canola, soy, sunflower, flax and peanuts can now contain up to 40,000 parts per billion (ppb) glyphosate which is almost 60 times the minimum containment level for drinking water which even the EPA admits causes organ damage and reproductive effects.

Silver makes antibiotics thousands of times more effective

Ancient antimicrobial treatment could help to solve modern bacterial resistance.

http://www.nature.com/news/silver-makes-antibiotics-thousands-of-times-more-effective-1.13232
19 June 2013
Silver may help in the fight against drug-resistant bacteria such as Stenotrophomonas maltophilia by easing large antibiotic molecules through the microbes’ outer coating.Coloured transmission electron micrograph by CFI/PHE/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY

Like werewolves and vampires, bacteria have a weakness: silver. The precious metal has been used to fight infection for thousands of years — Hippocrates first described its antimicrobial properties in 400 bc — but how it works has been a mystery. Now, a team led by James Collins, a biomedical engineer at Boston University in Massachusetts, has described how silver can disrupt bacteria, and shown that the ancient treatment could help to deal with the thoroughly modern scourge of antibiotic resistance. The work is published today in Science Translational Medicine1.

“Resistance is growing, while the number of new antibiotics in development is dropping,” says Collins. “We wanted to find a way to make what we have work better.”

Collins and his team found that silver — in the form of dissolved ions — attacks bacterial cells in two main ways: it makes the cell membrane more permeable, and it interferes with the cell’s metabolism, leading to the overproduction of reactive, and often toxic, oxygen compounds. Both mechanisms could potentially be harnessed to make today’s antibiotics more effective against resistant bacteria, Collins says.

Resistance is futile

More related stories

Many antibiotics are thought to kill their targets by producing reactive oxygen compounds, and Collins and his team showed that when boosted with a small amount of silver these drugs could kill between 10 and 1,000 times as many bacteria. The increased membrane permeability also allows more antibiotics to enter the bacterial cells, which may overwhelm the resistance mechanisms that rely on shuttling the drug back out.

That disruption to the cell membrane also increased the effectiveness of vancomycin, a large-molecule antibiotic, on Gram-negative bacteria — which have a protective outer coating. Gram-negative bacterial cells can often be impenetrable to antibiotics made of larger molecules.

“It’s not so much a silver bullet; more a silver spoon to help the Gram-negative bacteria take their medicine,” says Collins.

Toxic assets

Vance Fowler, an infectious-disease physician at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, says the work is “really cool” but sounds a note of caution about the potential toxicity of silver. “It has had a chequered past,” he says.

In the 1990s, for example, a heart valve made by St. Jude Medical, based in St. Paul, Minnesota, included parts covered with a silver coating called Silzone to fight infection. “It did a fine job of preventing infection,” says Fowler. “The problem was that the silver was also toxic to heart tissue.” As a result the valves often leaked2.

Before adding silver to antibiotics, “we’ll have to address the toxicity very carefully”, says Fowler. Ingesting too much silver can also cause argyria, a condition in which the skin turns a blue-grey colour — and the effect is permanent.

Collins says that he and his colleagues saw good results in mice using non-toxic amounts of silver. But, he adds, there are ways to reduce the risk even further. “We’re also encouraging people to look at what features of silver caused the helpful effects, so they can look for non-toxic versions,” he says.

Smart phone app ‘Fooducate’ could be the beginning of the end of GMO | It’s “kill or be killed” when it comes to GMO

foodFriday, April 19, 2013 by: S. D. Wells

(NaturalNews) One of the biggest obstacles holding people back from eating healthy is easy access to resourceful information, about chemicals in foods, or natural remedies and supplements, and about new choices to make right at the store. If only technology made something for your phone, so you could scan every product’s barcode and get a quick, reliable summary of what you’re really getting. For instance, is it GMO? Does it contain gluten? Am I allergic to the ingredients? Guess what? The smart phone app already exists, and has been around for a few years, but hardly anyone knows about it. That’s all about to change. (http://www.fooducate.com/).

Planet Earth is chock full of natural resources, foods that heal the body, herbs and mushrooms that build immunity, extracts and seed oils that cure diseases, and if no food scientists ever took any of it into a lab and cooked it with chemicals, there would be far less disease and disorder, far less obesity and cancer, and far less of a need need to put a HUGE filter on everything you consider purchasing. (http://store.naturalnews.com/Superfoods_c_4.html)

Not everyone has a smart phone, but millions now do. If you are not one of those fortunate owners of a smart phone, you may want to bring a friend or loved one along with you who has one, and bring them with you to every store where you buy food. You see, most people (besides NaturalNewsenthusiasts) do not read articles every day about chemicals in foods and food ”agents” that destroy your health. Most people do not do any research at all about what they ingest; they just ask a few questions here and there and maybe look it up on the dreaded WebMD or even worse, they watch The Doctors show or Doctor Oz on TV and believe everything they see and hear. But consider this: if a TV show, or an on-line allopathic reference, or some magazine runs pharmaceutical advertising for their revenue, then they will lie to you about food and nutrition, or they face consequences of losing all their “sponsors” and their “big bucks” from advertising toxic medications. (http://www.naturalnews.com)

You see, those “resources” can only dabble in actual “good health advice” because they want you to believe everything else they print or cover is the truth, but it is not. It’s just the opposite. (http://www.seedsofdeception.com/)

Remember the old saying, “Let your fingers do the walking?” In other words, let your fingers do the research, if you don’t have the time or energy. The smart phone app will uncover the lies, the food toxins, the food criminals, and expose them, right on the spot! If you read labels at all, you can read the Fooducate app even easier. Now you don’t have to try to figure out what all those long crazy words or ingredients mean that you can’t even pronounce, and you will know whether they include GMOs, pesticide, insecticide, herbicide, or toxic food coloring, aluminum (heavy metals), gluten, MSG, Aspartame, or other cancer-causing, heart attack-breeding junk that’s put in our “natural” food. Even organic foods can be checked for a rating, so you can make a fast judgment call as to whether or not you want the ingredients of a particular product to get past your “body guards” and enter the temple of your soul.

Scan the bar codes of everything you consider buying and eating!

• Find out what is GMO or is Non-GMO in seconds!
• Find out if something is vegan, vegetarian and organic – instantly!
• Filter out wheat, gluten, food colorings and food allergens!
• Get a quick calorie count and fat content (the good and bad fats)!

Just go to the “play store” on your smart phone under applications and search for Fooducate or click on the link in this article. No more excuses. It’s time to heal your body and launch yourself into the natural and organic world of energy, vitality and longevity. Educate yourself. “Fooducate” yourself right now! Realize that because of huge corporations, the United States sells the most toxic food in the world. You can put guards at your gates by getting the FREE smart phone food app. Don’t waste time wondering what you’re eating ever again, just scan the bar code, read a short description and look at the rating it gets. Fooducate grades (rates) foods and beverages on a scale from A to D. There are 10 distinct grades: A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+ and D. These grades are based on nutrition, ingredients, and processing (if any). Fooducate also accepts feedback if you disagree with their rating.

It’s “kill or be killed” when it comes to GMO

Take the “die” out of your diet right now! Get the bug killer and weed killer out of your food. Do not buy PESTICIDE FOOD. You can “kill” disease before it starts killing you. Never let it into your system in the first place. Protect your cells so they won’t mutate. Basically, if you filter out GMO from every shopping experience, you will be filtering the chemicals Big Food is putting in vegetable seeds and on weeds, all which cause cancer in humans. The long-term research is in, so it is reliable and scary. Pay attention. Get the app and scan the bar codes. It’s that simple. You can search for bleach, ammonia, MSG, Aspartame, and lots of other major food criminals! Fooducate is getting 5 star reviews! (http://www.seedsofdeception.com/)

The best part of the Fooducate app is that it gives concise explanations along with a grading systemdeveloped by scientists, dietitians and concerned parents. I believe that if everyone started scanning bar codes with the Fooducate app and used the GMO/non-GMO indicator, there could be a wave of millions of people who avoid GMO entirely in the near future, and maybe, just maybe, we could put an end to GMO altogether (http://www.fooducate.com/).

Common Sense Solutions – Starting Now

America’s Free Health Clinic



The Circus Comes To Town

Get ready to hear some truly great news you won’t hear on the nightly news.

We have been induced to believe that we individual citizens don’t stand a chance against vast corporate interests, especially when it comes to things like “health care.”

Two men, both very dedicated visionaries–Paul Glover and Patch Adams–are hoping to prove that wrong, with the formation of a new community based clinic, founded as a charity.

Bringing together all of their shared experiences in changing the world their own way, against all rules, Glover and Adams have designed America’s first FREE health clinic, now in the planning stages. It is extremely unique. Modeled on Adams Gesundheit Institute in rural West Virginia, he and Glover have developed “The Patch Adams Free Clinic at Philadelphia,” which will offer basic primary care to everybody–even dental, and even veterinary care–for a nominal members fee, which can also be paid in volunteer work. The clinic is owned and run by its members, in cooperation with Glover and Adams.

“We’re more than a free clinic,” says Glover, the legendary founder of Ithaca HOURS local currency, Citizen Planners of Los Angeles, and a dozen more organizations. Never accepting the common wisdom that Americans are not legally allowed to create independent health insurance systems, Glover, who did just that in Philadelphia in recent years, says, “There are practical alternatives to corporate style health systems.”

The new venture will be more than just a free clinic; Glover call it an “economic development force,” creating thousands of “green jobs,” training, organic gardening, fresh food and farmers markets, community trading and barter, beautiful outdoor settings, and their most central feature, “love, fun and justice,” which they consider to be “partners in healing.”

“We’re funny and healthy,” says Glover. “We are the circus come to town.”

In the Matter of Daniel Smith, MMS, and the FDA: Let Freedom Ring

March 12, 2013 — phaelosopher
See original post here: http://phaelosopher.com/2013/03/12/in-the-matter-of-daniel-smith-mms-and-the-fda-let-freedom-ring/

Lately I’ve been taking my time before saying what’s on my mind, but I am pleased to report that Daniel Smith, who the FDA and Department of Justice chose to make an example of in their campaign to protect the pharmaceutical oligarchy by discouraging the sale and use of MMS, is no longer being held in custody. He and his wife Karis were released on bail last week. However, while he is in a better position to prepare their legal defense, they are not free citizens yet as far as the law is concerned.

Let’s be clear that they are, and always will be free human beings, but the actual realm where true slavery, or freedom rings is, is in the mind and heart. Daniel and Karis are free citizens where it counts. I am confident that the world around them will reflect this truth in due time.

I spoke to Daniel a couple days ago. He and Karis were incarcerated for 31 days. Away from their children, callously stripped of their ability to support them by zealous and ambitious prosecutors seeking to build their own reputations as public ass kickers. Except for the grace of friends and well-wishers, they might still be behind bars, which is where the prosecution wanted them. One friend put his house up as collateral, another guaranteed notes on each, to help them make bail and post bond.

Unlike the way you see things on TV and in the movies, where the presumed innocent but guilty defendant is cleaned up, shaved, and gets a haircut in order to look like a right and upstanding citizen while his “mouthpiece” (an officer of the court, mind you) tries to convince the judge that he is ready to return to society, the presumed guilty but innocent Daniel was unkempt, unshaven, and had been forcibly drugged (some “vaccine”) a week or so earlier, when he stood before the judge and spoke for himself.

This is NOT Daniel Smith, but the DOJ would like you to fear him.

The government continues to try the case in the court of public opinion through the media. A recent article, published February 28, 2013 by the Medford (Oregon) Mail Tribune, but picked up on the Oregon Public Broadcasting web site, reports how Federal prosecutors attempted to keep Daniel and Karis in jail, claiming they were a flight risk.

The prosecutors actually sought to maintain the perception that Smith is a menace to society, making him an example for anyone else who dares try to mess with their policies, irrespective of whether or not they are intelligent. The bureaucrats continue to underestimate the intelligence and power of each human citizen that seeks, embraces, embodies, knows, and therefore speaks truth.

The government pleads its case to the public in the article, angling to get an “aware” jury pool if the case goes to trial. They’re not even claiming that MMS does any harm, in spite of its danger being THEIR ORIGINAL CONTENTION. My guess is that since the real science doesn’t support their claim, they’re steering clear.

According to the article, prosecutors claim that government agents made “numerous” undercover purchases of MMS through the PGL web site after PGL became a private membership association. What they didn’t say, and the writer probably didn’t know, was that each “member” signed a waiver, essentially taking responsibility for their action, as it is their right to do. Even with that waiver, Daniel was aware of the “undercover” purchases.

The article continues to paint the chlorine dioxide anion (ClO2-), which mixing MMS and a light acid together produces, in broad brush strokes. If they bothered to do a modicum of homework – including the writer who wrote the Medford Mail Tribune article – they might realize that the chlorine dioxide (ClO2) that is produced to bleach textiles and disinfect wastewater, is a very different chemical animal than the product that Daniel Smith sold.

Even vaccinated 7th graders can figure that out if they care to look!

Sadly, MMS proponents don’t make the distinction either. While interest in MMS continues, some vendors are scrambling to minimize their potential risk. A new one, MMSGREENLIFE.COM has the gall to include “Green Life” in its name, then say that while it “feels bad about the posistion of Project Green Life, MMSGREENLIFE is OPEN as USUAL!” Lacking any real evidence of harm, I wouldn’t be surprised if this site was run by government operatives, distributing chemicals labeled as “MMS” so that they can get some “reliable” harmful data. The choice of that name is that incongruent with respect or common sense.

I can’t see any other reason how, or why the operators of the site, which appeared out the blue, (registered in November, 2011 while the government was actively trying to build a case against Smith), or anyone within the MMS community wouldn’t strongly suggest that there is a large ocean to choose names from, and that it’s a pretty salacious move to try to capitalize on any recognition that might yet be associated with the name. They had to know it might happen since they were aware enough to deny any connection with Smith’s Project Green Life. Just my opinion, but I’d steer clear of it. Even their description of chlorine dioxide is as vague and misleading as the FDA’s. This is another reason that the MMS community should lead the understanding about the chlorine dioxide anion (ClO2-), which is not a bleaching agent for textiles or wood pulp, has an oxidation potential of 0.95V, and has been scientifically proven to be harmless inside the body.

I’m not speaking as a proponent of MMS. I prefer to drink my own urine now, as it has everything MMS contains, and more, and the body knows how to mix it to serve its specific needs. Yet, I know that MMS is better than 90+ percent of all the medications that the FDA has approved for doctors, medical personnel, and hospitals to use, which is the real reason why they’re trying to shut it down.

But shame on them for doing harm to people who have done none. The FDA’s “laws” aren’t above humanity. They’re not even based on truth, as no “drug” can, or will ever cure any disease. The public is being brainwashed by the brainwashed. It’s time to wake up, and stand up.

If MMSGREENLIFE.COM isn’t a front for an undercover government operation, it is a mere annoyance compared to the bigger problem of bullying of citizens by government agencies. Yet, a government that would openly consider “droning” its own citizens would certainly not be above other forms of blatant disregard for human life. What else do we need to see?

While such behavior is reprehensible, it’s easy to see how it evolved, now that government officials have begun describing and rationalizing the circumstances they might see fit to use drones to kill Americans on American soil. I comment about it more at the beginning of last week’s Talk For Food (click here to download mp3).

The last people who should be running a “war on terror” are the terrified. I’m suggesting that the policy makers are the terrified ones. They don’t appear to understand that the “do unto others rule applies to them too.”

“What you do unto others, you do unto yourself.”

I’m not afraid of a drone attack, as I would never wish it on anyone. I am not afraid of an assassin, as I would never even wish it on anyone. It’s not that I’m not capable making such wishes; I simply know that my thoughts have power, and I choose to use my thoughts and intention on events that I am serious about, which is RESTORING HARMONY, not propagating more harm.

The United States Corporation, under the guise of representing The People, is propagating more HARM around the world by remote control, “secure” not only in the idea that they represent “good,” but that they can get away with their crimes against humanity. The people who have salivated at the specter of “bringing down” Daniel Smith, are just as controlled as are drones, and equally mindless and heartless.

Daniel Smith has an active mind and heart. It is his best protection from harm, as it is for each of us.

The Justice Department is devoting a great amount of money, time, and human resources in order to make the public think that Daniel Smith, an intelligent, sincere, human loving and respecting American, is a criminal, while they, and their related agencies, FACILITATE countless INHUMANE, and thereby criminal acts against individuals, both foreign and domestic. The only “sin” for many of these people, was uncovering and advancing solutions to social problems that billions and trillions of research dollars have yet to produce. The government’s “War on MMS” is but one of many campaigns that have been run by various alphabet agencies in an effort to squelch real progress while advancing imaginary perceptions of gain.

We are led to believe that the “terror” threat is abroad, when much of their activity is instigated by individuals located in the city-state of Washington, DC. They themselves have been puppets to other manipulators who have long saw themselves as “above the law.”

They weren’t, and aren’t.

All human beings are subject to the same Universal Laws. There’s no getting around that. There’s no way, or place to hide. What you do unto others, you WILL do to yourself.

Since when did innocence stop being "presumed?"

THIS is Daniel Smith.

Daniel Smith will be okay, whatever the verdict. He remains himself, having shed the web of fear that the DOJ tried to snare him in.

They just don’t seem to know what they’re doing to themselves.

Gotta love ‘em…

Guns v Vioxx: Murder is ok if you are big pharma

January 29, 2013 by ppjg

Where is your outrage over the hundreds of thousands of deaths each year that result from FDA approved and declared safe, pharmaceuticals?  Where is your outrage and your demand for change regarding the drugging of our children and the elderly: many to the point of death.  Why are you not outraged over the use of psychotropic medications that cause suicidal and/or homicidal ideation in children deemed too young to be forced onto these drugs, and what is referred to as brainstorms that cause aggressive, violent and psychotic behavior?  Why are you not outraged and demanding change over the hundreds of thousands of deaths each year from the use of known toxic pharmaceuticals?

__________________________________________________________

With sheriff’s across the country lining up, drawing a constitutional line in the proverbial sand, this will be an all out power struggle to retain the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.   Homeland Security Terrorism Department is arming itself to the teeth in preparation for what can only be a potential attack on America; we need to preserve our 2nd Amendment.

What is missing from the gun debate?

Just imagine for a moment, that congress and the president and all his czars and UN buddies had to drugs_deespublicly acknowledge the hundreds and hundreds of thousands of deaths and injuries caused by toxic pharmaceuticals each year!  All approved safe and effective by the FDA!

Gun deaths accounted for in the FBI Uniform Crime Report, between 2006 and 2010 ,856 people were murdered in the U.S. by firearms.  Its unfortunate that we cannot get the FBI to do a Uniform Deadly Medication Report.

Total 2006-2010 deaths: 270,827 and, 1,702,973 serious injuries from toxic pharmaceuticals as reported on DrugWarFact.org , taken from the AERS [FDA’s Adverse Events Reporting System] Patient Outcomes by Year Causes of Death   (See graph below)

Guns vs Vioxx !!

In the period between 2001 and 2004, Vioxx, manufactured by Merck killed a hundred thousand individuals.  Actually the death toll from Vioxx is still rolling.

Conservative writer and activist Ron Unz  has concluded that data indicate that the death toll from Vioxx was closer to 500,000 just in 2004.

What?  No fake public polls saying the public was in favor of Vioxx control?

Did no one think to print up t-shirts with the slogan “I don’t want to be Vioxx’ed”?

Did the (then) president shed crocodile tears for these half million people?  Did he mount a public campaign to outlaw Vioxx?  Did he promise swift action on making Vioxx illegal or harder to obtain? Has our current president?   No? What’s up with that?

Did any activist groups appear on the streets decrying the deaths from Vioxx and demanding that the marketing of numerous pharmaceuticals known to be deadly, be outlawed?  After all, we have an estimated half million people dead from this one drug in just one year.  Don’t they count?

Did any big global banks seize the accounts of Merck and refuse to do business with them?  No, again?  That’s strange…….that’s what they are doing to gun manufacturers.

Has the United Nations begun any negotiations for a UN Global Vioxx Banning  Treaty?  Declaring the manufacture of even small doses of Vioxx to be banned unless owned and in the possession of the “state”?

Now I get it!

If you are a big pharmaceutical company with thousands of lobbyists crawling like maggots on the corpse that is the District of Criminals, you can kill all the people you like with what you know to be deadly and lethal medications.

No banks will refuse to do business with you, the UN won’t be colluding with our government to end your right to manufacturer and sell Vioxx.  There will not be one MSM talking potato head who will even mention shutting down the operations of Merck and holding the corporate leaders and scientists accountable for all these deaths for no other reason than, profit.  These privilged S.O.B’s will never be charged with even one murder and hundreds will continue to die as a result of known lethal medications.

If anything horrible should result from the use of these killer drugs, you can always point the finger somewhere else as to the cause.  Just keep those “campaign contributions” amounting to millions upon millions rolling in to the coffers of those political whores in the District, and you can get away with murder….for real.

Health Notes

MERCURY is HAZARDOUS!

Do you currently have heavy metal toxins damaging the inside of your body?
The answer is unfortunately “yes” for over 99% of us!

http://iaomt.org/wp-content/uploads/article_2012%20IAOMTpositionstatement%20ondentalmercuryamalgam.pdf

International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT)
October 10, 2012 published their position statement on Dental Amalgam in response to the “call for information” by the Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (“SCENIHR”).


II. Summary of the IAOMT Position on the Use of Dental Amalgam
“The IAOMT seeks a ban on the use of encapsulated mercury fillings as a dental restorative material. The risk of illness or injury associated with the use of dental mercury presents an unreasonable, direct and substantial danger to the health of dental patients as well as dental personnel. Mercury fillings potentially endangers the health of individuals who have been or will be exposed to dental mercury, The weight of the published scientific evidence decidedly supports the position of the IAOMT”

Now what about mercury in vaccines…

Treaty on mercury would not affect vaccines with thimerosal

Mercury Treaty Falls Short of Tough Measures and ‘Indigenous Peoples’

from the Washington Times, Saturday, January 19, 2013

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jan/19/treaty-on-mercury-would-not-affect-vaccines-with-t/

By Cheryl Wetzstein

A global treaty to reduce toxic mercury in the environment has been completed and will be presented to countries for their agreement to control and reduce ways in which mercury is used, released or emitted.

Negotiations on the Minamata Convention on Mercury, named for the Japanese city that suffered severe mercury poisoning in the 1950s, finished in Switzerland on Saturday.

“Everyone in the world stands to benefit from the decisions take this week in Geneva — in particular, the workers and families of small-scale gold miners, the peoples of the Arctic, and this generation of mothers and babies and the generations to come,” said Achim Steiner, United Nations undersecretary-general and executive director of the United Nations Environment Program, which facilitated the meeting of delegates from 140 member states.

The treaty says that certain mercury-added products, such as batteries, lamps, switches, skin-lightening cosmetics, pesticides and thermometers, may not be manufactured, imported or exported no later than 2020.

Mercury-added dental amalgams are also to be phased out.

However, certain mercury-added products are to be exempted from the ban, including those used for military and civil protection, products with no mercury-free alternative, products used in religious or traditional practices and vaccines containing thimerosal, an ethylmercury preservative.

The omission of thimerosal-containing vaccines from the ban disappointed advocates who believe the preservative plays a role in sickening some children.

“Children’s health took a backseat to special interests. The only major purposeful exposure to mercury that didn’t get addressed was thimerosal,” said Eric Uram, executive director at SafeMinds, which seeks to eradicate autism and other health disorders caused by mercury and man-made toxicants.

However, use of thimerosal vaccines was supported by specialists who advise the World Health Organization, and groups like the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

Fifteen years of research “has failed to yield any evidence of significant harm” — including disorders such as autism — from using thimerosal in vaccines, Dr. Walter Orenstein, associate director of the Emory Vaccine Center at Emory University in Georgia, wrote in AAP’s Dec. 17, 2012, Pediatrics journal.

Millions of children in the developing world depend on multidose vaccines that can be stored without refrigeration; thimerosal prevents bacteria or pathogens from growing in these vaccines, added researchers Katherine King and colleagues in Pediatrics. “Banning thimerosal would amount to banning such multidose vaccines” that currently protect children from tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough and hepatitis B, they wrote.

The United States uses thimerosal-free vaccines, except in some flu shots, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Mercury is highly toxic to humans and animals when inhaled or ingested, and is particularly harmful to developing brains and nervous systems in children and fetuses.

Global mercury pollution, which will be curtailed under the new treaty, occurs through emissions from mining, power plants, smelters and cement production. Mercury has entered the global food chain, especially via fish and shellfish; shark, swordfish, tilefish and King Mackerel should not be eaten because of their high mercury concentrations, the Food and Drug Administration advises.

The signing of the global mercury ban will occur in October in Minamata, where thousands of Japanese citizens suffered death and injury from eating methylmercury-contaminated seafood from their local waters. It was later discovered that a local chemical factory had released its industrial wastewater into the surrounding waterways.

But, we the people of Earth can heal ourselves and remove heavy metal toxins from our bodies.

How to Remove Heavy Metal Toxins
with Oral Chelation

Do you currently have heavy metal toxins damaging the inside of your body?
The answer is unfortunately “yes” for over 99% of us!

So what is a “heavy metal” and what do I need to know? If you’re thinking of Ozzy Osbourne, KISS, or Ted Nugent, you’re not alone. The truth is that most people do not fully understand the real dangers of heavy metal poisons and just how common they are in our modern world. Fortunately, you can take steps to understand and minimize such threats through simple acts of education, prevention, and treatment that will help to lessen any negative impact on you and your family’s health.

Remember chemistry class? Heavy metals are simply a certain class of metallic elements. Our bodies require trace amounts of some heavy metals, including copper, zinc, and others, but even these can be dangerous at high levels. Other heavy metals such as mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium have no known benefits, and their accumulation over time can cause serious illness and even premature death. The industrialization of our world has dramatically increased the overall environmental ‘load’ of heavy metal toxins. Today, heavy metals are abundant in our air, soil, and even drinking water. They are present in virtually every area of modern life from construction materials to cosmetics, medicines, processed foods, fuel, appliances, and even personal care products. It is very difficult for anyone to avoid exposure. However, you can take steps to understand and minimize this threat through acts of prevention and treatment that will help to lessen their negative impact on you and your family’s health.

Heavy metal toxins contribute to a variety of adverse health effects. There are over 20 different known heavy metal toxins that can impact human health. Accumulation within the body can lead to a decline in the mental, cognitive, and physical health of the individual. The following paragraphs discuss three of the most common and dangerous heavy metal toxins:

How to Remove Heavy Metal Toxins

Arsenic
The use of this toxic element in numerous industrial processes has resulted in its presence in many biological and ecological systems. Ground, surface, and drinking water are susceptible to arsenic poisoning from the use of arsenic in smelting, refining, galvanizing, and power plants; environmental contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, desiccants, wood preservatives, and animal feed additives; and human made hazardous waste sites, chemical wastes, and antibiotics. After the absorption of arsenic compounds, the primary areas of distribution are the liver, kidneys, lung, spleen, aorta, and skin. Arsenic compounds are also readily deposited in the hair and nails.

Arsenic is a highly toxic element that has been used historically for purposes of suicide and homicide. Its health effects are well known and documented. Acute exposure to arsenic compounds can cause nausea, anorexia, vomiting, abdominal pain, muscle cramps, diarrhea, and burning of the mouth and throat. Garlic-like breath, malaise, and fatigue have also been seen while contact dermatitis, skin lesions, and skin irritation, are seen in individuals who come into direct tactile contact with arsenic compounds. Studies have shown close associations between both inhaled and ingested arsenic and cancer rates. Cancers of the skin, liver, respiratory tract, and gastrointestinal tract are well documented in regards to arsenic exposure. Several arsenic compounds have been classified by the US Environmental Protection Agency as a Class A – Human Carcinogen (IARC 1987).

How to Remove Heavy Metal Toxins

Lead
Lead is the 5th most utilized metal in the U.S. Human exposure to lead occurs primarily through drinking water, airborne lead-containing particulates, and lead-based paints. The primary source of lead in drinking water is from lead-based plumbing materials. The corrosion of such materials will continue to increase concentrations of lead in municipal drinking water. The EPA actually allows small amounts of lead to be present in our tap water due to this insurmountable problem. Lead from water and airborne sources have been shown to accumulate in agricultural areas leading to increased concentrations in agricultural produce and farm animals. Cigarette smoke is also a significant source of lead exposure.

Lead is one of the most toxic elements naturally occurring on Earth. High concentrations of lead can cause irreversible brain damage, seizure, coma, and death if not treated immediately. Evidence suggests that lead may cause fatigue, irritability, memory problems, reduction in sensory and motor reaction times, decision making impairment, and lapses in concentration. In adults, lead is very detrimental to the cardiovascular system. Occupationally exposed individuals tend to have higher blood pressure and are at an increased risk for cardiovascular disease, myocardial infarction, and stroke. The kidneys are targets of lead toxicity and prone to impairment at moderate to high levels of lead concentrations. Other signs/symptoms of lead toxicity include gastrointestinal disturbances, abdominal pain, cramps, constipation, anorexia and weight loss, immunosuppression, and some liver impairment.

Children absorb lead much more efficiently than adults do after exposure and are susceptible to the most damaging effects of lead toxicity. Lead not only appears to affect cognitive development of young children but also other areas of neuropsychological function. Young children exposed to lead may exhibit mental retardation, learning difficulties, shortened attention spans (ADHD), increased behavioral problems (aggressive behaviors) and reduced physical growth. Lead has been determined by many health experts to be the #1 threat to developing children in our industrial societies.

How to Remove Heavy Metal Toxins

Mercury
Mercury occurs primarily in two forms: organic mercury and inorganic mercury. Inorganic mercury and elemental mercury are both toxins that can produce a wide range of adverse health affects. Inorganic mercury is used in thermometers, barometers, dental fillings, batteries, electrical wiring and switches, fluorescent light bulbs, pesticides, fungicides, vaccines, paint, skin-tightening creams, antiseptic creams, pharmaceutical drugs, and other ointments. Humans have the ability to convert this inorganic mercury to an organic form once it has become absorbed into the bloodstream. Organic mercury is known to bio-accumulate due they body’s inability to process and eliminate it. Organic mercury is found primarily in marine life (fish) and can often be found in produce, farm animals, processed grains, dairy products, and surface water sources.

Occupational exposure to mercury containing compounds presents a significant health risk to individuals. Dentists, painters, fishermen, electricians, pharmaceutical/laboratories workers, farmers, factory workers, miners, chemists, and beauticians are just some of the professions chronically exposed to mercury compounds.

Our understanding of the effects of methyl mercury poisoning comes primarily from epidemic poisonings in Iraq and Japan. In Iraq more than 6,000 individuals were hospitalized and 459 died as a result of methyl mercury poisoning. Adults experienced symptoms including parasthesia visual disorders, ataxia, fatigue, tremor, hearing disorders (deafness), and coma. Observations of exposed individuals have shown irreversible brain damage. Iraqi children poisoned through the consumption of mercury containing food products (grains treated with mercury containing fungicides) exhibited nervous system impairment, visual and auditory disorders, weakness, motor and cognitive impairment, and emotional disturbances. Individuals in Japan experienced many of these same symptoms after the ingestion of fish containing large amounts of methyl mercury.

Mercury has recently been implicated as being a contributing factor to the increasing prevalence of autism in American children. The Autism Research Institute has focused on mercury containing vaccines (TMS) and their relationship to autism. Over 2 million individuals are affected with autism, a neurodevelopment syndrome that typically produces impairment in sociality, communication, and sensory/perceptual processes. Recent evidence has found a positive correlation between complications seen in autistics and complications seen in mercury poisoned individuals (Bernard et al. 2000). Mercury poisoning has been implicated in the development of many other human dysfunctional states for many years. Among these are cerebral palsy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s disease, psychosis, and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

Other heavy metal toxins include Aluminum, Antimony, Barium, Bismuth, Cadmium, Cesium, Nickel, Platinum, Rubidium, Thorium, Tin, Tungsten, and Uranium.

How to Safely Remove Heavy Metal Toxins:
We are just now beginning to understand the threat of long-term exposure to heavy metal toxins. However heavy metal toxicity is a condition that often goes overlooked in traditional medical diagnoses. Heavy metal toxins have the ability to impair not just a single cell or tissue but many of the body’s systems that are responsible for our behavior, mental health, and proper physiological functioning. If undetected, these agents can cause immeasurable pain and suffering for any afflicted individual. Fortunately, there are avenues that we can pursue to detoxify heavy metals already in our system and to prevent additional exposures.

Testing Options:
Various forms of testing include urine, stool, hair, and blood analysis. Each method has different pros and cons and applications.

Blood tests are useful for identifying ongoing chronic exposures. However, blood testing is not a good method for identifying past exposures stored in the body’s tissues.

Hair testing measures the body’s excretion of toxic metals over a long period of time. The length of hair determines what time period is being averaged.

Urine and Stool testing also measures the body’s excretion of toxic metals, but is primarily a measure of recent exposure, usually during the last few days.

Provocation Testing is widely considered the most conclusive method. This testing involves the use of a detoxification agent, followed by a collection of urine. This test tells you two important facts: 1.) The metal was present in the body, and 2) It demonstrates that the detoxification agent can remove it. It is best to first take a baseline urine sample, followed by the provoked sample. This allows one to directly compare the effects of a provocation agent.

Removal Options:
Traditional Chelation: Popular therapies known as “chelation” often rely on intravenous (IV) solutions to help eliminate heavy metal toxins. EDTA, DMSA, and DMPS are three compounds that have traditionally been used for the removal of heavy metals. These therapies have been shown to be effective, but also potentially harmful due to their side-effects that compromise the body’s nutritional status via mineral depletion. These therapies can also be very expensive, very time consuming, and extremely difficult for young children.

All Natural Zeolite: An exciting, newly patented oral chelation option utilizes a purified form of the zeolite mineral, clinoptilite. Zeolite is a natural mineral formed over thousands of years from the combination of volcanic ash and sea water. Due to its negatively charged 3-D honeycomb-like structure, it acts as a ‘cage’ that allows it to trap a variety of harmful toxins and heavy metals. It has been shown to be incredibly effective in the removal of heavy metal toxins, but without the dangers of removing critical minerals. In fact, in animal studies it has been shown to actually improve their overall nutritional status. It is also conveniently administered in the form of liquid drops that can be added to water or any other liquid, and it does not require prescription or oversight by a physician.

Purified zeolite also offers other health benefits as a pH buffering agent as well as its ability to remove some allergens and viral components from the body. Anecdotal evidence and ongoing clinical studies also support the use of purified zeolite in preventing and treating most forms of cancer.

It is important to note that not all zeolite products are created equal. Only one product carries a United States Patent which protects the process used to purify the mineral. Because zeolite attracts heavy metals and toxins literally like a magnet, it is already “dirty” from exposure to environmental toxins while in its natural state. The patented purification process cleans the zeolite structure resulting in a much more powerful and inherently safe form of the mineral.

Prevention Steps:
The best solution for combating heavy metal toxins is to avoid them in the first place. Today’s modern world makes this task almost impossible, but significant improvements can be accomplished using the following guidelines:

1. Avoid mercury-silver dental amalgams: Mercury based amalgams are the major source of mercury in most Americans. Consider extraction and replacement, but only through a qualified and experienced dentist.

2. Avoid fish and some shellfish: Fish and seafood are a common source for mercury and even arsenic, especially the largest fish (shark, swordfish, tuna), which are highest in mercury. Buy organic, tested, and certified mercury-free fish and seafood.

3. Clean Water: Use a high quality water filtration unit for all drinking water. A high quality shower filter also helps to avoid inhalation of heavy metals, chlorine, and other contaminants.

4. Clean Air: Outdoor air pollution is hard to avoid, but indoor air pollution is often much worse due to our energy efficient, air-tight buildings. High quality air filtration and purification systems have quickly become an important part of any healthy lifestyle.

5. Clean Food: Buying Organic foods (preferred) or extensive washing of the surfaces of fruits and vegetables is a very important step as well as avoiding virtually all processed foods. Nutrition is a vital component to helping the body detoxify itself.

6. Natural Products: Household cleaners as well as many personal care products such as skin creams and make-up have been found to carry heavy metals and other toxic elements. Buy all natural products whenever possible.

7. Thimerosal-free vaccines: Thimerosal has NOT been removed from all vaccines. Many adult vaccines, including the common flu-shot, still contain Thimerosal, a mercury based preservative.

8. Avoid Industrial Areas: As much as possible, avoid areas of industry especially in choosing where to live. Air, water, and food contamination is typically worse in these areas.

Gardasil license should be revoked on safety violation – Indian Supreme Court Case

Posted on January 8, 2013 by The Refusers
Bookmark and Share

The Economic Times of India  Jan 8, 2013

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has issued a notice to the government on a plea that licences for sale and marketing of Gardasil and Crevarix, vaccines for prevention of cervical cancer, should be revoked as the drugs are “unsafe” and the permits were granted without adequate research.

Gardasil and Crevarix, both human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines, are being marketed in India by MSD Pharmaceutical, a subsidiary of MerckBSE 0.29 %, and GlaxoSmithKline, respectively.

“Both vaccines were licensed in India without sufficient clinical trials in appropriate age groups to determine their safety and efficacy,” the public interest litigation (PIL), filed on behalf of an Andhra Pradesh-based women’s organisation, said.

Seeking a ban on their sale and use, petitioners Kalpana Mehta, Nalini Bhanot and V Rukmini Rao alleged that the drugmakers were “conducting trials” on unsuspecting women from vulnerable sections of the society without follow-up treatment or monitoring, resulting in fatalities.

The drugs have been used on thousands of adolescent girls in Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh, they said. “These vaccines had not been assessed with respect to safety and efficacy for the Indian population, where adolescent girls are overwhelmingly anemic and malnourished. No steps were taken to ensure the health and safety of the girls,” the petitioners said.

The PIL claimed that the Parliamentary Standing Committee for Health and Welfare had sought a probe into the approval for marketing of these vaccines but “this was not done”. According to the PIL, the Indian Council for Medical Research had entered into an MOU with a US-based NGO to execute a project to test the drugs.

Doctors’ group blasts flu vaccine firings as the inquisition of a ‘secular religion’

Nurses Fired; Flu Vaccine Exemptions Denied on Dubious Pretext, Doctors’ Group Says

TUCSON, Ariz., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Eight employees, including at least three veteran nurses, have been fired by Goshen Hospital, in Goshen, Indiana, for refusing the flu vaccine. A religious exemption is available, but was denied because these employees did not meet the criteria for religious protection established by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

“What gives the EEOC the authority to define what constitutes an acceptable religious belief?” asks Jane M. Orient, M.D., executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS).

AAPS opposes vaccine mandates, believing that patients and healthcare workers have the right to refuse medical treatment.

Hospitals may agree with the right to refuse treatment, but assert the right to determine conditions for employment. They cite concerns about protecting patients from transmission of influenza by unvaccinated staff.

“The scientific and religious concerns are in a sense backward,” Dr. Orient stated. “Advocates of the mandate are full of evangelical zeal and are quick to portray skeptics as wicked and selfish. It’s like a secular religion, based on faith in vaccine efficacy and safety.”

In fact, the scientific case for flu vaccine mandates is very weak, Dr. Orient points out in an article in the winter issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. A handful of studies show slight benefit in long-term care facilities. Hospitals have not been studied. Safety data are limited, and there are no long-term studies of the effects of annual vaccination. Serious, lifelong disability occasionally occurs. There is no evidence showing that vaccinated workers are less likely to transmit virus.

Studies and advisory committees are compromised by conflicts of interest, and some researchers cite “evidence of widespread manipulation of conclusions.”

Do hospitals have a financial incentive from the government to force workers to be vaccinated? There should be greater transparency for the real reasons behind such heavy-handedness by hospitals.

“When allowed freedom to decide, more than half of medical workers decline annual flu vaccine,” Dr. Orient pointed out. Unconvinced by pharmaceutical companies and public health authorities, these workers apparently decide that benefit doesn’t outweigh risk.

“If people can’t reject the product, where’s the incentive to develop better, more extensively tested products?” Dr. Orient asks.

Many of the risks in vaccines derive from animal products they contain. Interestingly, vegans are generally granted an exemption without questions.

“Forcing workers to choose between their employment and vaccine is not only disrespectful of individual rights,” said Dr. Orient. “It represents the triumph of authority over evidence in medicine.”

Pesticides and Parkinson’s: Further Proof of a Link Uncovered

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/01/130104101427.htm?utm_source=fee
Jan. 3, 2013 — For several years, neurologists at UCLA have been building a case that a link exists between pesticides and Parkinson’s disease. To date, paraquat, maneb and ziram — common chemicals sprayed in California’s Central Valley and elsewhere — have been tied to increases in the disease, not only among farmworkers but in individuals who simply lived or worked near fields and likely inhaled drifting particles.

Now, UCLA researchers have discovered a link between Parkinson’s and another pesticide, benomyl, whose toxicological effects still linger some 10 years after the chemical was banned by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Even more significantly, the research suggests that the damaging series of events set in motion by benomyl may also occur in people with Parkinson’s disease who were never exposed to the pesticide, according to Jeff Bronstein, senior author of the study and a professor of neurology at UCLA, and his colleagues.

Benomyl exposure, they say, starts a cascade of cellular events that may lead to Parkinson’s. The pesticide prevents an enzyme called ALDH (aldehyde dehydrogenase) from keeping a lid on DOPAL, a toxin that naturally occurs in the brain. When left unchecked by ALDH, DOPAL accumulates, damages neurons and increases an individual’s risk of developing Parkinson’s.

The investigators believe their findings concerning benomyl may be generalized to all Parkinson’s patients. Developing new drugs to protect ALDH activity, they say, may eventually help slow the progression of the disease, whether or not an individual has been exposed to pesticides.

The research is published in the current online edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Parkinson’s disease is a debilitating neurodegenerative disorder that affects millions worldwide. Its symptoms — including tremor, rigidity, and slowed movements and speech — increase with the progressive degeneration of neurons, primarily in a part of the mid-brain called the substantia nigra. This area normally produces dopamine, a neurotransmitter that allows cells to communicate, and damage to the mid-brain has been linked to the disease. Usually, by the time Parkinson’s symptoms manifest themselves, more than half of these neurons, known as dopaminergic neurons, have already been lost.

While researchers have identified certain genetic variations that cause an inherited form of Parkinson’s, only a small fraction of the disease can be blamed on genes, said the study’s first author, Arthur G. Fitzmaurice, a postdoctoral scholar in Bronstein’s laboratory.

“As a result, environmental factors almost certainly play an important role in this disorder,” Fitzmaurice said. “Understanding the relevant mechanisms — particularly what causes the selective loss of dopaminergic neurons — may provide important clues to explain how the disease develops.”

Benomyl was widely used in the U.S. for three decades until toxicological evidence revealed it could potentially lead to liver tumors, brain malformations, reproductive effects and carcinogenesis. It was banned in 2001.

The researchers wanted to explore whether there was a relationship between benomyl and Parkinson’s, which would demonstrate the possibility of long-lasting toxicological effects from pesticide use, even a decade after chronic exposure. But because a direct causal relationship between the pesticide and Parkinson’s can’t be established by testing humans, the investigators sought to determine if exposure in experimental models could duplicate some of the pathologic features of the disease.

They first tested the effects of benomyl in cell cultures and confirmed that the pesticide damaged or destroyed dopaminergic neurons.

Next, they tested the pesticide in a zebrafish model of the disease. This freshwater fish is commonly used in research because it is easy to manipulate genetically, it develops rapidly and it is transparent, making the observation and measurement of biological processes much easier. By using a fluorescent dye and counting the neurons, the researchers discovered there was significant neuron loss in the fish — but only to the dopaminergic neurons. The other neurons were left unaffected.

Until now, evidence had pointed to one particular culprit — a protein called α-synuclein — in the development of Parkinson’s. This protein, common to all Parkinson’s patients, is thought to create a pathway to the disease when it binds together in “clumps” and becomes toxic, killing the brain’s neurons.

The identification of ALDH activity now gives researchers another target to focus on in trying to stop this disease.

“We’ve known that in animal models and cell cultures, agricultural pesticides trigger a neurodegenerative process that leads to Parkinson’s,” said Bronstein, who directs the UCLA Movement Disorders Program. “And epidemiologic studies have consistently shown the disease occurs at high rates among farmers and in rural populations. Our work reinforces the hypothesis that pesticides may be partially responsible, and the discovery of this new pathway may be a new avenue for developing therapeutic drugs.”

Other authors of the study included Lisa Barnhill, Hoa A. Lam, Aaron Lulla, Nigel T. Maidment, Niall P. Murphy, Kelley C. O’Donnell, Shannon L. Rhodes, Beate Ritz, Alvaro Sagastig and Mark C. Stahl, all of UCLA; John E. Casida of UC Berkeley; and Myles Cockburn of the University of Southern California. The authors declare no conflict of interest.

MB Comment: This makes perfect sense. Since the only major childhood epidemics in America are the plagues of neurological damage caused by medical textbook cases of vaccine adverse reactions (aka brain inflammation) and autoimmune dysfunction caused by vaccination (asthma, etc.) – what kids need is more enforced vaccines – in case any have escaped the carnage.

And who is more qualified to shoot kids up with vaccines and keep them sedated on psychotropic drugs than gold ol’ pediatricians?  So let’s legislate mandatory needle nut doctors and nurses in schools, to keep their self-induced epidemics going and (not incidentally) offer employment to American Academy of Pediatric members – and (don’t forget) vaccine and drug revenue streams to their pharmaceutical company overlords.

Florida scientists prepare to release hundreds of thousands of genetically modified mosquitoes — RT http://rt.com/usa/news/florida-mosquitos-disease-fever-472/
Published: 07 December, 2012, 01:21

Hundreds of thousands of mutated mosquitoes could soon be unleashed in Florida, but don’t worry: scientists say they have a plan.

It might sound like something out of a low-budget horror film, but the US Food and Drug Administration really is considering whether or not they should allow scientists to send thousands upon thousands of genetically altered insects into the wild.

If all goes as planned, mosquitos modified by some serious Frankenstein treatment will be introduced into the Florida Keys and ideally mate with skeeters that carry the deadly dengue fever, passing along in the process a fatal birth defect that will hopefully eradicate the offspring before birth. From there, scientists say they expect the population of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes infected with the dangerous disease will be decimated in only a few generations without causing any major implications for the native ecosystem.

“The science of it, I think, looks fine. It’s straight from setting up experiments and collecting data,” Michael Doyle of the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District tells the Associated Press.

Two new drugs tied to colossal meningitis outbreak

Published: 16 October, 2012, 01:24
http://rt.com/usa/news/two-new-meningitis-outbreak-513/

“The meningitis outbreak ravaging the US may not end up under control anytime soon: now health officials have found two new drugs that they think may have exposed even more patients to the potentially lethal virus.

The New England Compounding Center (NECC) in Massachusetts has already recalled all of its products from store shelves after tainted vaccines produced in their labs were linked to a recent meningitis outbreak that has so far claimed 15 deaths across the US and infected around 14,000 patients. Now authorities fear that two other drugs manufactured by NECC could be tarnished, opening up even more Americans to possible infection.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is now expediting their outreach to physicians and patients across the country who could have come into contact with two new drugs being linked to the epidemic.

“At this point in FDA’s investigation, the sterility of any injectable drugs… and cardioplegic solutions” produced by NECC are “of significant concern,” the FDA says in a statement this week.

Previously a steroid injection used for back pain produced by NECC, methylprednisolone acetate, was believed to be the only culprit behind the outbreak. Now, however, the FDA believes doses of triamcinolone acetonide and cardioplegic solution could be causing causes as well. Those drugs are often administered to patients undergoing organ transplants or eye surgery, Fox News reports.

So far the FDA has refrained from putting a number on their estimate of how many additional patients may have been exposed to the tainted drugs, and for now cannot confirm for certain if the two new drugs are to blame. In the meantime, though, they are cautioning all persons who have received injectable drugs produced by the New England factory to investigate with their physician.

Just last week, Dr. Todd Weber of the Centers for Disease Control told USA Today, “We are not out of the woods yet” in terms of tackling the epidemic.”

http://rt.com/usa/news/obesity-pill-belviq-fda-912/print/
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved an all new obesity pill.

Published: 27 June, 2012, 23:21

Obesity drug approved by FDA after originally being rejected

The FDA gave the go-ahead on Wednesday for doctors to start dishing out prescriptions for Belviq, the brand name for the weight-loss drug lorcaserin developed by Switzerland-based Arena Pharmaceuticals.

For now the federal agency says the drug is safe enough to be served to patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above, the standard used by physicians to establish the lower end of obesity. Additionally, Americans with a BMI of 27 or greater who also suffer from at least one weight-related health problem could be prescribed Belviq by physicians.

“Obesity threatens the overall wellbeing of patients and is a major public health concern,” Dr. Janet Woodcock, director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, explains in a written statement released this week. “The approval of this drug, used responsibly in combination with a healthy diet and lifestyle, provides a treatment option for Americans who are obese or are overweight and have at least one weight-related comorbid condition.”

Arena Pharmaceuticals originally pitched their pill to the FDA in 2009, but it was rejected a year later over concerns of possible side-effects. When the company’s New Drug Application was dismissed the following year, Duke University Professor Dr. Pamela S. Douglas explained to the New York Times, “The argument that there is an urgent need I don’t think really mitigates the concern of putting a drug that doesn’t do much and may do harm on the market.”

Two years later, however, the FDA has changed their stance after combing over the latest studies sent in by Arena. Even still, side-effects of Belviq in its current form include serotonin syndrome, a condition the US National Library of Medicine agrees can be “potentially life-threatening” and can cause reactions that include, but are not limited to, diarrhea, hallucinations and overactive reflexes.

Last month, a panel of expert advisers to the FDA voted with few dissenters to approve the pill, siding that the drug’s benefits “outweigh the potential risks when used long term,” reports CBS News.

Coincidentally, the results of a University of Iowa study released last week reveal that another compound can aid in America’s obesity epidemic if administered correctly: apples. Researchers there discovered that ursolic acid, a compound found commonly on the skin of apples, reduces total body weight and increases muscle mass.

That, however, is a pill that many Americans might find hard to swallow. One-in-three Americans is currently considered obese, with that statistic ringing true for more than 44 percent of non-Hispanic black adults in the United States.

With this week’s approval, Belviq will be the first obesity drug to be given the federal go-ahead in more than a decade.”

The Fight for Real Organic Food Continues

Alex Pietrowski, Contributor
Activist Post
http://truth11.com/2012/12/05/the-fight-for-real-organic-food-continues/

Greed and power in the food industry is turning a trip to the grocery store into an objectionable experience, as processed and factory foods are further pushed onto the unwitting public.

On the positive side, however, most of us now have plenty of organic options, providing we know where to shop and how to find the good stuff. From fresh organic produce, to organic and compassionately farmed animal products, to a variety of delicious organic packaged foods, it is now easier than ever to eat healthy and stay away from unwanted pesticides, antibiotics, GMO ingredients, and synthetic additives in our food.

And now that Proposition 37 in California to label GMO foods has been defeated by the food industry and a sleeping populace, it is more important then ever to know how how to access and support the organic food movement. In a big way, your life depends on it.

Consumers must be prepared to demand and fight for high-quality organic options in our supermarkets, or we will be faced with a further degradation of production standards, questionable business practices, and conflict of interest matters.

Big Agra Conflict of Interest 

A recent issue raised by various organic food industry watchdogs has been the presence of conflict of interest that has influenced decisions on what food additives are approved for use in organic packaged products. US organizations, such as the Cornucopia Institute and Center for Food Safety, have recently raised the issue of Big Agra business encroaching on the independent oversight that the US National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) has over what synthetic items can be added to the approved National List. This list includes processed synthetic items and processes that are approved for use in organic packaged products. The following video from Cornucopia Institute provides a thorough overview regarding this issue:

A conflict of interest question has been raised regarding who makes the decisions about what contractors and consultants conduct technical or TAB reviews of materials on the National List of approved organic ingredients. Currently, the NOSB does not hold the final decision in this; instead, the USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP), the designated federal officer that participates in NOSB meetings, and the USDA Office of Ethics are said to carry an unethical influence over these decisions.

The decisions of the NOSB significantly affect the direction of the organic industry and what synthetic items are actually considered acceptable organic food components. Questionable items are already approved, such as the food additive Carrageenan, which was re-approved for use in organic food processing as of the Spring 2012 NOSB meeting.

“Degraded carrageenan,” which is present in all food-grade carrageenan, is classified as a “possible human carcinogen” by the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Academy of Science in United States. –Cornucopia Institute

Who Owns Organic 

It can be quite shocking to realize that we’re at a stage of having a “possible human carcinogen” approved as an ingredient in our organic products. Perhaps as awareness of this grows, concerned industry players, consumers and government officials will implement new checks and balances to ensure that less conflict of interest exists in the NOSB in the US, and in similar organic industry authorities worldwide. Industry oversight will grow in importance now that most non-organic, all-American brands, many of which are supporting Monsanto’s no GMO labeling efforts, are the same companies that have been heavily investing in the organic industry over the last 15+ years.

Some of the big food companies that have given money to the [GMO] anti-labeling cause also own organic brands, such as Kellogg Co., which owns the Kashi cereal brand, Dean Foods Co., owner of the Horizon organic dairy line and J.M. Smucker Co., which owns several organic brands. – Wall Street Journal

Here’s a PDF of the top food companies in the US and their ownership ties to well-known organic brands (as of June 2009): http://www.cornucopia.org/wp-content/themes/Cornucopia/downloads/OrganicT30J09.pdf

Click here to download a short video created by Dr. Phil Howard, Assistant Professor at Michigan State University about who owns some of the more well-known organic brands.

How to Shop Organic 

Let’s agree that buying food is much more complicated than it used to be, especially for the aware, health-conscious individual. There are more choices than ever, but these choices come from fewer companies. For shoppers, it is vitally important to understand the labeling process currently employed in the organic food industry. This is why people who want to label GMO foods are so passionate about this cause: labels are one of a few ways, if not the only way, that consumers can make informed decisions about what food they buy.

The USDA’s NOP offers some insight on its website about the labeling requirements of organic products, which can be viewed in the Labeling Organic Products PDF. Here’s a quick video with Anne Lappe, author of Grub: Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen, offering an overview of how to identify organic foods in stores:

In the video, Lappe mentions that buying organic produce is easy – it’s either organic or not. But what if your organic produce selection is limited? Or you’re on a budget, and shopping all organic is breaking the bank. Here’s a quick review of what fresh produce is typically most heavily treated with pesticides and which is not:http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/summary/

Here is another article with some insight regarding organic dairy, meat and seafood.http://www.motherearthliving.com/food-for-health/what-we-eat.aspx

Think Local 

If you already buy organic products or just want to eat healthier, don’t get discouraged by this article. It is a resource. Take this opportunity to learn from the wealth of information available here, and start making even better food choices. In our world, it is difficult to be 100% organic. But there are ways you can move closer toward this goal. Support smaller organic food producers and local farms. Eat fresh and raw foods. Start an organic garden or become involved in a community urban farming project. And stay informed and educated, so YOU are the one who decides on what food ends up on your dinner table.

I barely survived wearing a “Toe Tag” from Acute Aspartame and Sucrolose Poisonings.

This home made web site is now 36 months old and  has surpassed 116,017 Unique Visits  by word of mouth and my spreading the word via any and all mediums. In fact this site breached the 100,000 Unique Visit mark on July 4th 2012. I thank you all for so eagerly passing along these vital health warnings. For every person you tell about this you could exponentially save a thousand lives. Hopefully, together we can get these poisons banned.

Sad Birthday.
This month Nov 17, 2012 is the third birthday of this site.
I say sad as it was born out of tregedy.

                            
Methanol is the 
 base chemical used to make paint remover, carburetor cleaner, motor vehicle fuel, Sterno, Formaldehyde and others chemical nasties. During the Roaring 20s there was a bootleg alcohol drink known as “Bathtub Gin”.   Bathtub Gin was made from Wood Alcohol  and it hospitalized many people with just one drink. “Bathtub Gin” caused people to go blind and some people died. Methanol is made from “Wood Alcohol”. The chemical family tree goes on and millions continue to suffer.

In short Wood Alcohol (Bathtub Gin)=Methanol=Aspartame = self embalming

Methanol is the base chemical used to manufacture the most caustic and harmful of products such as:

PAINT REMOVER
CARBURETOR CLEANER
WINDSHIELD WASHING FLUID
DE-ICING FLUIDS
VEHICULAR FUELS
EMBALMING FLUIDS – extremely tacky, takes an extremely long time to purge residues from a body, it is designed to preserve all animal forms for Eternity.

This site deals primarily with Aspartic Acid Poisoning. Sucrolose (Splenda) is the new kid on the block of just a few lustrums. Part of the manufacturing processes in the manufacture of Splenda is Chlorine which adheres to the finished product. Putting a packet of Splenda in your coffee is comparable to your making that cup of Coffee out of swimming pool water.

Many postings on this site have been copied and then  pasted from other formats and cannot be altered.  Please excuse typos. I am not trained in  web site work. I am posting alerts to educate innocent, uninformed human beings about the many ways Aspartame has adversely affected, is adversely affecting and those it will continue affecting until it’s Banishment from the shelves as a food additive and returned to the Ant Poison Market it was originally designed for.

 I have been going through detoxification and withdrawals for 42 months from artificial sweetener food poisoning and I still feel horrible, lingering side effects; very, very slowly diminishing; of artificial sweetener poisoning some of which are:

burred vision, drunken dizziness, disorientation, brain washing, loss of equilibrium, abdominal bloating, Flame Thrower Bowel Movements,  loss of equilibrium, cramps, headaches, lethargic, burning eyes, forgetfulness, Acute Gingivitis, cold sweats, hot chills, aches, pains, irritability, ringing in the ears, decreased ability to correctly, verbally communicate what I thought and meant to say, dysfunction, overall pain, depression, suicidal tendencies, numbness, miscarriages, birth defects, seizures, itching, hyper sensitivity to cold and more.

Aspartame has a crippling effect. There are 92 symptoms plus listed on the FDA’s list. Aspartame is the most complained about product in FDA history. My life since 2003 has been and still lingers in poor health and a llot of wasted time out of my living.

I’m a career musician, 66 years old. Aspartame & Sucrolose disabled me to the point I had to roll my Guitars and Basses and amp heads on a dolley, had to play sitting on a foot stool and finally languished out of the scene (gigs, recordings, jams, etc) into a vegatative state. 12 years of my life went to waste. I excelled at operating a TV Remote. The only thing I have to brag about for this time period is the remarkable success I have achieved in alerting and educating the populace about processed food additives/toxins.

                                   Aspartame is made from Methanol

III. Major Uses and Sources * Exert from FDA Web Site

Originally distilled from wood, methanol is now manufactured synthetically from carbon oxides and hydrogen. Methanol is used primarily for the manufacture of other chemicals and as a solvent. It is also added to a variety of commercial and consumer products such as windshield washing fluid and De-icing solution, duplicating fluids, solid canned fuels, paint remover, model airplane fuels, embalming fluids, lacquers, and inks. Methanol is also used as an alternative motor fuel (HSDB, 1999). The annual statewide industrial emissions from facilities reporting under the Air Toxic Hot Spots Act in California based on the most recent inventory were estimated to be 3,009,776 pounds of methanol (CARB, 1999b).

Because Methanol is so highly flammable and caustic these  chemicals cause what I  have coined the phrase as “Constant Flame Thrower Bowel movements still languishing. I awake early on fire all over until I have relieved myself several times.

Another relative phrase I have coined is “ASPARTIC CONFUSION” because of the brain washing, confusion and disorientation caused to a  semi-embalmed mind.

Uses

      The majority of the potassium chloride produced is used for making fertilizer, since the growth of many plants is limited by their potassium intake. As a chemical feedstock, it is used for the manufacture of potassium hydroxide and potassium metal. It is also used in medicine (including lethal injection), scientific applications, food processing, and as a sodium-free substitute for table salt (sodium chloride). (c) 2011 Wikipedia

How Aspartame Became
Legal – The Timeline

From Rich Murray
rmforall@att.net
12-24-2
From Norfolk Genetic Information Network (Taken from Welcome to the Spin Machine by Michael Manville http://www.freezerbox.com/archive/2001/04/biotech/ http://www.freezerbox.com/ )
 
In 1985 Monsanto purchased G.D. Searle, the chemical company that held the patent to aspartame, the active ingredient in NutraSweet. Monsanto was apparently untroubled by aspartame’s clouded past, including a 1980 FDA Board of Inquiry, comprised of three independent scientists, which confirmed that it “might induce brain tumors.”
 
The FDA had actually banned aspartame based on this finding, only to have Searle Chairman Donald Rumsfeld (currently the Secretary of Defense) vow to “call in his markers,” to get it approved.
 
On January 21, 1981, the day after Ronald Reagan’s inauguration, Searle re-applied to the FDA for approval to use aspartame in food sweetener, and Reagan’s new FDA commissioner, Arthur Hayes Hull, Jr., appointed a 5-person Scientific Commission to review the board of inquiry’s decision.
 
It soon became clear that the panel would uphold the ban by a 3-2 decision, but Hull then installed a sixth member on the commission, and the vote became deadlocked. He then personally broke the tie in aspartame’s favor. Hull later left the FDA under allegations of impropriety, served briefly as Provost at New York Medical College, and then took a position with Burston-Marsteller, the chief public relations firm for both Monsanto and GD Searle. Since that time he has never spoken publicly about aspartame.

Timeline
 
December 1965– While working on an ulcer drug, James Schlatter, a chemist at G.D. Searle, accidentally discovers aspartame, a substance that is 180 times sweeter than sugar yet has no calories.
 
Spring 1967– Searle begins the safety tests on aspartame that are necessary for applying for FDA approval of food additives.
 
Fall 1967– Dr. Harold Waisman, a biochemist at the University of Wisconsin, conducts aspartame safety tests on infant monkeys on behalf of the Searle Company. Of the seven monkeys that were being fed aspartame mixed with milk, one dies and five others have grand mal seizures.
 
November 1970– Cyclamate, the reigning low-calorie artificial sweetener — is pulled off the market after some scientists associate it with cancer. Questions are also raised about safety of saccharin, the only other artificial sweetener on the market, leaving the field wide open for aspartame.
 
December 18, 1970– Searle Company executives lay out a “Food and Drug Sweetener Strategy’ that they feel will put the FDA into a positive frame of mind about aspartame. An internal policy memo describes psychological tactics the company should use to bring the FDA into a subconscious spirit of participation” with them on aspartame and get FDA regulators into the “habit of saying, “Yes”.”
 
Spring 1971– Neuroscientist Dr. John Olney (whose pioneering work with monosodium glutamate was responsible for having it removed from baby foods) informs Searle that his studies show that aspartic acid (one of the ingredients of aspartame) caused holes in the brains of infant mice. One of Searle’s own researchers confirmed Dr. Olney’s findings in a similar study.
 
February 1973– After spending tens of millions of dollars conducting safety tests, the G.D. Searle Company applies for FDA approval and submits over 100 studies they claim support aspartame’s safety.
 
March 5, 1973– One of the first FDA scientists to review the aspartame safety data states that “the information provided (by Searle) is inadequate to permit an evaluation of the potential toxicity of aspartame”. She says in her report that in order to be certain that aspartame is safe, further clinical tests are needed.
 
May 1974– Attorney, Jim Turner (consumer advocate who was instrumental in getting cyclamate taken off the market) meets with Searle representatives to discuss Dr. Olney’s 1971 study which showed that aspartic acid caused holes in the brains of infant mice.
 
July 26, 1974– The FDA grants aspartame its first approval for restricted use in dry foods.
 
August 1974– Jim Turner and Dr. John Olney file the first objections against aspartame’s approval.
 
March 24, 1976– Turner and Olney’s petition triggers an FDA investigation of the laboratory practices of aspartame’s manufacturer, G.D. Searle. The investigation finds Searle’s testing procedures shoddy, full of inaccuracies and “manipulated” test data. The investigators report they “had never seen anything as bad as Searle’s testing.”
 
January 10, 1977– The FDA formally requests the U.S. Attorney’s office to begin grand jury proceedings to investigate whether indictments should be filed against Searle for knowingly misrepresenting findings and “concealing material facts and making false statements” in aspartame safety tests. This is the first time in the FDA’s history that they request a criminal investigation of a manufacturer.
 
January 26, 1977– While the grand jury probe is underway, Sidley & Austin, the law firm representing Searle, begins job negotiations with the U.S. Attorney in charge of the investigation, Samuel Skinner.
 
March 8, 1977– G. D. Searle hires prominent Washington insider Donald Rumsfeld as the new CEO to try to turn the beleaguered company around. A former Member of Congress and Secretary of Defense in the Ford Administration, Rumsfeld brings in several of his Washington cronies as top management.
 
July 1, 1977– Samuel Skinner leaves the U.S. Attorney’s office and takes a job with Searle’s law firm. (see Jan. 26th)
 
August 1, 1977– The Bressler Report, compiled by FDA investigators and headed by Jerome Bressler, is released. The report finds that 98 of the 196 animals died during one of Searle’s studies and weren’t autopsied until later dates, in some cases over one year after death. Many other errors and inconsistencies are noted. For example, a rat was reported alive, then dead, then alive, then dead again; a mass, a uterine polyp, and ovarian neoplasms were found in animals but not reported or diagnosed in Searle’s reports.
 
December 8, 1977– U.S. Attorney Skinner’s withdrawal and resignation stalls the Searle grand jury investigation for so long that the statue of limitations on the aspartame charges runs out. The grand jury investigation is dropped.
 
June 1, 1979– The FDA established a Public Board of Inquiry (PBOI) to rule on safety issues surrounding NutraSweet.
 
September 30, 1980– The Public Board of Inquiry concludes NutraSweet should not be approved pending further investigations of brain tumors in animals. The board states it “has not been presented with proof of reasonable certainty that aspartame is safe for use as a food additive.”
 
January 1981– Donald Rumsfeld, CEO of Searle, states in a sales meeting that he is going to make a big push to get aspartame approved within the year. Rumsfeld says he will use his political pull in Washington, rather than scientific means, to make sure it gets approved.
 
January 21, 1981– Ronald Reagan is sworn in as President of the United States. Reagan’s transition team, which includes Donald Rumsfeld, CEO of G. D. Searle, hand picks Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes Jr. to be the new FDA Commissioner.
 
March, 1981– An FDA commissioner’s panel is established to review issues raised by the Public Board of Inquiry.
 
May 19, 1981– Three of six in-house FDA scientists who were responsible for reviewing the brain tumor issues, Dr. Robert Condon, Dr. Satya Dubey, and Dr. Douglas Park, advise against approval of NutraSweet, stating on the record that the Searle tests are unreliable and not adequate to determine the safety of aspartame.
 
July 15, 1981– In one of his first official acts, Dr. Arthur Hayes Jr., the new FDA commissioner, overrules the Public Board of Inquiry, ignores the recommendations of his own internal FDA team and approves NutraSweet for dry products. Hayes says that aspartame has been shown to be safe for its’ proposed uses and says few compounds have withstood such detailed testing and repeated close scrutiny.
 
October 15, 1982– The FDA announces that Searle has filed a petition that aspartame be approved as a sweetener in carbonated beverages and other liquids.
 
July 1, 1983– The National Soft Drink Association (NSDA) urges the FDA to delay approval of aspartame for carbonated beverages pending further testing because aspartame is very unstable in liquid form. When liquid aspartame is stored in temperatures above 85 degrees Fahrenheit, it breaks down into DKP and formaldehyde, both of which are known toxins.
 
July 8, 1983– The National Soft Drink Association drafts an objection to the final ruling which permits the use of aspartame in carbonated beverages and syrup bases and requests a hearing on the objections. The association says that Searle has not provided responsible certainty that aspartame and its’ degradation products are safe for use in soft drinks.
 
August 8, 1983– Consumer Attorney, Jim Turner of the Community Nutrition Institute and Dr. Woodrow Monte, Arizona State University’s Director of Food Science and Nutritional Laboratories, file suit with the FDA objecting to aspartame approval based on unresolved safety issues.
 
September, 1983– FDA Commissioner Hayes resigns under a cloud of controversy about his taking unauthorized rides aboard a General Foods jet. (General foods is a major customer of NutraSweet) Burson-Marsteller, Searle’s public relation firm (which also represented several of NutraSweet’s major users), immediately hires Hayes as senior scientific consultant.
 
Fall 1983– The first carbonated beverages containing aspartame are sold for public consumption.
 
November 1984– Center for Disease Control (CDC) “Evaluation of consumer complaints related to aspartame use.” (summary by B. Mullarkey)
 
November 3, 1987– U.S. hearing, “NutraSweet: Health and Safety Concerns,” Committee on Labor and Human Resources, Senator Howard Metzenbaum, chairman.

Banning Aspartame – A
Common Sense Precaution

By Senator Jerry Ortiz y Pino
New Mexico
1-5-7

When many of my constituents hear that I plan to introduce a bill to ban the artificial sweetener aspartame in the upcoming legislative session, I get a lot of very strange looks. Or worse.
 
The American Diabetes Foundation, for example, considers aspartame almost sacramental for persons with the disease they battle, one that makes consumption of sugar very dangerous. To hear their lobbyists tell it, aspartame is the modern scientific equivalent of Lourdes water for diabetics: “If you take away my soft drinks with aspartame, what am I supposed to drink, then, huh? ” (On each occasion that sentiment is expressed to me, I have to bite my tongue not to gently, but sarcastically, suggest cold water, unsugared ice tea or skim milk all perfectly drinkable alternatives, but not acceptable solutions for carbonation-crazed Coke or Pepsi devotees.)
 
Aspartame is currently used in over 6,000 processed foods in this country, practically everything that passes itself off as a “lite” or “nonfat” food or drink. Banning it, I am scolded, will create a massive economic depression, leading to factory closures, layoffs of thousands of workers, bank failures and rioting in the streets. Even the Coca-Cola corporation, which looks at a casual glance like a fairly prosperous company even an incredibly profitable one, I would think will be, I am assured, destroyed by such a ban a very heavy burden to lay on my shoulders.
 
Meanwhile, dozens of corporate lobbyists (the world’s second-oldest profession) are praying that I introduce the measure again, as it would occasion a windfall profit of extravagant expenditures for their services when every soda pop manufacturer in the country rushes to hire clever mouthpieces to protect their interests from our attack. It is a veritable full-employment-for-lobbyists initiative.
 
To be candid, the chances of our efforts succeeding in the face of the phalanx of three-piece suits and slick leather briefcases that will be arrayed against our tiny cadre of concerned health advocates is extremely slim. Still, it is absolutely worth doing, I am convinced, if it furthers the awareness-expanding process and builds on the excellent work that is being done by the aspartame whistle-blowers like Santa Feans Stephen Fox and Dr. Kenneth Stoller, and the remarkable Dr. Betty Martini from Atlanta whose tireless advocacy is slowly turning the tide of public opinion against this absolutely worthless and extremely dangerous substance. It is even worth risking the destruction of the Coca- Cola empire, apparently much more fragile than any of us ever imagined.
 
For those wishing to become more familiar with the aspartame menace, a good starting point would be the two hour-long documentary films (available as DVDs) produced by Cori Brackett: Sweet Misery and Sweet Remedy, available through Sound and Fury Productions at http://www.soundandfury.tv. What you see in these two films is a frightening case study of how corporate greed can completely overwhelm the supposed protections of our governmental watchdogs, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Environmental Protection Agency, and the state and federal departments of Health.
 
It is worth taking a moment here to review the history of how a true poison like this might be passed on to us as “food” over the protests of the scientists who tried to say “No!” but who were, and who continue to be, subverted by corporate money spent to influence politicians. And it may be instructional to consider as well how this same process of erosion in public protections could actually be going on with ever-growing sophistication and success in many other public health areas of concern, such as mad cow disease and E. coli outbreaks at meatpacking plants.
 
Coca-Cola has changed 180 degrees from its position on aspartame in 1980. At that time it testified in opposition to aspartame ‘s approval at FDA hearings looking into the safety of it. Now they help finance its defense. Of course, the FDA itself has flipped. Its initial denial was reversed a few years later in 1983, when Donald Rumsfeld (ring a bell?) persuaded the Reagan administration that denial was not bad chemistry but bad politics. At that time Rumsfeld headed Searle, the pharmaceutical firm that helped develop aspartame.
 
When concerns over the product’s safety seemed likely to produce lawsuits, Searle sold the manufacturing rights to Monsanto, which in turn peddled them to its current primary producer, the Japanese chemical giant Ajinomoto. That outfit has made billions on the production of this artificial sweetener, a significant percentage of which has gone into shoring up the political fortunes of the company ‘s reputation with American congressional figures.
 
Brilliantly too, the company has consistently made the American Diabetes Foundation one of the chief beneficiaries of its charitable giving largesse that has created vast gratitude and easy acceptance of whatever “scientific” rationales the company chooses to feed the diabetes advocacy community.
 
Many more studies of the medical effects of aspartame consumption have been undertaken with financing from the industry than by independent researchers. Their findings that the formaldehyde-laced artificial sweetener is perfectly safe are, therefore, of questionable objectivity.
 
Last year, however, a truly independent assessment was published by an Italian academic researcher, Dr. Morando Soffritti. His findings substantiate the links between aspartame and cancer, calling it a “neurotoxin” with serious other health consequences and concluding it has major negative impacts on those who ingest it. Soffitti ‘s study has been repeatedly attacked by industry spokespeople and their paid researchers, but its conclusions stand substantially intact. In Europe and in India, its impact is already producing governmental action to restrict or remove aspartame.
 
Efforts to act similarly in this country have been solely at state levels so far, though the recent congressional changes may open the door to much more active oversight by the Feds than was possible under the previous leadership. Nevertheless, I would like to proceed with our state initiative. It will, win or lose, further the effort to draw attention to the serious medical dangers that aspartame represents. It would serve as a precaution and could save lives.

Note From Dr. Betty Martini, D.Hum, Mission Possible International:
 
With regard to Senator Ortiz y Pino’s remarks about aspartame and diabetes, in another article he mentions it seems aspartame makes it worse. He is right. According to H. J. Roberts, M.D., diabetic and aspartame expert, aspartame can not only precipitate diabetes, but also aggravates and simulates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, destroys the optic nerve, causes diabetics to go into convulsions and even interacts with insulin.

There are safe alternatives for diabetics, stevia, which you can get in any health food store, and Just Like Sugar made of chicory and orange peel, which you can get in Whole Foods and Wild Oats, etc. There is a large study now on Just Like Sugar and the American Diabetes Assn has asked to add their seal. Splenda should be avoided as its a chlorocarbon poison, and James Turner, Atty, and Citizens for Health have petitioned for recall.
 
Below my signature is a Canadian Study showing aspartame produces the same effect as sugar.
 
Let’s set a precedent in New Mexico and get it banned. We can if everyone will help. All members of the legislature should get a copy of the post FDA COMMISSIONER LIED TO NEW MEXICO LEGISLATURE: http://www.thenhf.com/articles_417.htm The lobbyists will be preventing some of this same propaganda and more.

Aspartame is a GM product as written by the Independent in the UK. The amino acids are grown on E.coli bacteria, a toxic sludge according to the words of Dr. Bill Deagle. The free methyl alcohol converts to formaldehyde and embalms living tissue as proven by the Trocho Study in Barcelona in 1998. This study also showed it damages DNA, and this means it can destroy humanity.

CANADIAN STUDY – ASPARTAME PRODUCES THE SAME EFFECT AS SUGAR
 
The aspartame produces the same effect as sugar in the diabetics who devote themselves to a physical activity
 
By Jean Hamann
fil@scom.ulaval.ca
 
Even if it is not a sugar, the aspartame does not put the people diabetics who practise a physical activity with the shelter of the variations of the rate of blood glucose which can lead to hypoglycemia. In fact, this product imitates so much well the sugar of table which it arrives to berner not only the taste buds, but also the system which controls the rate of blood glucose (glycemia). It is what work shows that coed-enquiring Annie Ferland realized with Paul Poirier, Simone Lemieux, Jean Bergeron, Ginette Turbide, Lison Fournier and Josée Bergeron. The study undertaken by this team on the aspartame was the presentation on May 13 object at the time of the Scientific workshop of the Research center of the Laval Hospital.
 
The researchers have known for several years that, in the diabetics of the type 2, the practice of a physical activity after an induced meal of stronger variations of the glycemia than a meeting of exercises carried out with jeun. In the first two hours which follow a meal, the glycemia of the diabetics rises – especially if the consumed food is rich in sugars – and it goes down again quickly if there is physical activity. “More the glycemia reaches a raised level, plus the subsequent risks of hypoglycemia induced by the exercise increase”, explains Annie Ferland.
 
Does the food which contains substitutes of sugar as the aspartame cause them also these glycemic Russian mountains? To have the cur Net of it, the researchers invited ten subjects diabetics with a training session 60 minutes on ergocycle. This meeting proceeded at jeun or two hours after a meal sweetened with sucrose (sugar of table) or aspartame. Even if the calorific contents of the dish containing of the aspartame were 20% weaker than that sweetened with the sucrose, the two meals caused a similar rise of the glycemia, followed by a fast fall coinciding with the beginning of the meeting of exercises. On their side, the subjects with jeun did not undergo significant variations of glycemia. “We were surprised by our own results, admits Annie Ferland. As the aspartame is not a sugar and like the dish containing of the aspartame had an index glycemic less raised, we did not think of causing a reaction similar to the sucrose at our subjects.”
 
The brain reacts to a meal containing of the aspartame as if it were about sugar, coed-enquiring Faculty of pharmacy notes. However, the aspartame is a small protein made up of two amino acids. One needs from 160 to 220 times less aspartame that of sugar to produce a taste sweetened equivalent, so that the contribution of this sweetening substance to the calories contained in drinks and food is about null. One of the nutritional recommendations made to the diabetics precisely consists in replacing sugar by a substitute like the aspartame; approximately 65% of the diabetics respect this instruction besides.
 
Which lessons is necessary to draw from this study? “Our results reaffirm the effectiveness of the regular practice of the physical activity like method of control of the glycemia, notes initially Annie Ferland. They also show that the practice of the physical activity with jeun does not pose a problem for the control of the glycemia. As regards the exercise after a meal, the people diabetics must know that their glycemia is likely to drop quickly, especially if it is high at the beginning, if the exercise is vigorous and if the diabetes is severe. The important thing is to anticipate what can occur and not to believe that the aspartame can secure important variations of glycemia.” The researchers are unaware of for the moment if the other substitutes of sugar produce the same effect as the aspartame at the subjects active diabetics.

Warning from European Commission on IGF-1

  • rBGH adds cancer risks to American milk
  • No labeling of rBGH required on U. S. milk containers

European Scientific Committee Warns of Serious Risks of Breast and Prostate Cancer from Monsanto’s Hormonal Milk.

Press Release March 21, 99

The European Commission (EC) has just released a report by its authoritative international 16-member scientific committee, based on meticulous scientific documentation, confirming excess levels of the naturally occurring Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) in milk of cows injected with Monsanto’s biotech hormone (rBGH). The report concludes that the excess levels of IGF-1 pose serious risks of breast and prostate cancer. “Experimental evidence for an association between IGF-1 and breast and prostate cancer is supported by epidemiological — evidence arising from recently published cohort studies — .” The report also warns that excess levels of IGF-1 may promote the growth and invasiveness of any cancer by inhibiting programmed self-destruction of cancer cells (apoptosis), and that contamination of milk with residues of antibiotics used to treat mastitis in rBGH cows is likely to spread antibiotic resistant infections in the general population. The EC human health report finally emphasized the need for additional investigation of several other potential risks of rBGH milk. A parallel EC report also warns of serious veterinary risks of rBGH. It may be noted that FDA has ignored such evidence reported in detail by the author in peer reviewed scientific publications over the last decade. The EC warnings are in sharp conflict with the policies of the Food and Drug Administration, largely based on unpublished and confidential Monsanto claims, that hormonal milk is safe. As seriously, the report raises serious questions on the competence and conflicts of interest of Codex, the WHO organization responsible for setting international food safety standards, which has given an unqualified clean bill of health to rBGH milk. It should further be emphasized that senior FDA officials and industry consultants are members of Codex, which meets in secrecy and relies on unpublished industry assurances of safety. Interlocking relationships between U.S. and Canadian regulatory officials and Codex are matters of critical concern to U.S. consumers and global food safety.

Faced with escalating rates of breast and prostate cancers, besides other avoidable public health hazards, FDA should immediately withdraw its approval of rBGH milk whose sale benefits only Monsanto while posing major public health risks for the entire U.S. population. A Congressional investigation of
FDA’s abdication of responsibility and of its reliance on Codex authority for food safety, analogous to that recently conducted on rBGH milk by the Canadian Parliament, is well overdue.

HORMONES IN MEAT Fact Sheet

jump to links

Most U. S. beef cattle are implanted with synthetic hormones in feedlots prior to slaughter.   On January 1, 1989 the European Economic Community (EEC) placed a ban on hormone-treated U. S. meat, preventing U. S. meat products from being sold in any European nations. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has challenged the ban and accused the EEC of unfair trade practices, but the action of European governments raises some important questions about American meat.

Q. Why did the Europeans (EEC) place a ban on hormone-raised meat?

A. The European Economic Community banned hormone-raised meat because of questions on the dangers of meat that has been treated with synthetic sex hormones. European consumers pressured the EEC to take this action to protect their health.

More than a decade ago, Roy Hertz, then director of endocrinology at the National Cancer Institute and a leading authority on hormonal cancers, warned of the carcinogenic risks of estrogenic additives which can cause imbalances and increases in natural hormone levels. Hertz warned against the uncontrolled use of these potent carcinogens. No dietary levels of hormones are safe and a dime-sized piece of meat contains-billions of millions of molecules.

Breast cancer has been raised as a primary concern in light of associations between breast cancer and oral contraceptives, whose estrogen dosage is known and controlled. The risk of breast and other cancers only increases with the uncontrolled use of hormones in meat.

Q. During the seven years after the EEC ban on hormone-raised meat, the U.S. beef industry has continued to use sex hormones in meat. Why?

A. Hormones can be used to stimulate growth in cattle. Because farmers are paid based on the weight of the animals they sell for slaughter, the use of hormones has been seen as a way to boost profits.

Q. Which hormones are used on feedlots?

A. Diethylstilbestrol (DES) was one of the first hormones used to fatten feedlots. It was banned in 1979 after forty years of evidence that DES was cancer-causing. In its place, sex hormones, such as estradiol and progestins (synthetic forms of the naturally occurring hormone progesterone) have been implanted to virtually all feedlot cattle. The least hazardous way to administer hormones to animals is through an implant near the animals ear. Unfortunately, many farmers inject hormones directly into the muscle tissue that will be later used to make meat products. The only USDA-imposed requirement is that residue levels in meat must be less than one percent of the daily hormone production of children. This requirement is unenforceable because there is no USDA testing for hormone residues in meat. Furthermore, hormonal residues are not practically differentiable from natural hormones created by the cow’s body. As a result, the use of hormones to boost meat production is completely unregulated.

Q. What kind of policies should be in place in the U.S. to address this problem?

A. Hormonal and other carcinogenic additives (pesticides from food fed to animals, some antibiotics, etc.) should be banned immediately, as should be all additives that are not proven effective and safe. Additive use and residue levels in animal products, including milk and eggs, should be subject to explicit labeling requirements. Until then, state initiatives that establish hormone-free certification for European shipments, should be applauded and extended domestically.

Q. What can consumers do to protect themselves?

A. Consumers can boycott chemical treated meat in favor of organic meat and insist on the fight to know which additives have been used and what residues might exist. Consumers should speak with their butchers or grocers about hormone-free meat product availability.

“Sugary sodas and sweet snacks are out along with potato chips and other vending machine cuisine under Massachusetts’ new school nutrition standards approved Wednesday.

The rules, approved unanimously by the state Public Health Council, ban foods with artificial sweeteners, trans fats, and caffeine from schools’ a la carte lines, vending machines, stores, events and fundraisers. They also ban fried foods and limit the amount of fat, sodium, and sugar that can be in school foods.

In addition, the regulations require schools to offer unsweetened fruits and vegetables wherever food is sold besides in vending machines, and provide water for free at all times.
Breads must be made with whole grain, juices must be 100 percent fruit juice, and flavored milk cannot have more sugar than plain low-fat milk.
Most of the changes go into effect in the 2012-2013 school year.”

China bans Coca-Cola’s soft drink and Pringles potato chips

FBR Staff Writer Published 14 May 2008

China has banned berry-flavored soft drink Fanta, manufactured by Coca-Cola, and ‘spicy salad sauce’ and ‘crispy baked’ flavors of Pringles potato chips, produced by Procter and Gamble, for containing harmful ingredients, reported Agence France-Presse.

Cancer-causing chemical, potassium bromate, has been reportedly found in the samples of Pringles potato chips while Fanta contained an overdose of benzoic acid, which could affect the liver and the kidneys. Pringles chips have been imported from the US by Kangrui Trade while Fanta has been imported from South Korea by Xiaolong Information Trade. Chinese quality control agency, The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of China, has said that harmful substances were found in 593 food items imported in January and February 2008. It said that coffee beans of Nestle’s Dongguan Branch, imported from Vietnam, contained beetles while some companies have used unqualified trademarks. The faulty companies will be fined at least $7,140 and banned from selling the products, the regulator said.

Recall on Proctor and Gamble Pringles Potato Chips

Tuesday July 17 8:54 AM ET
P&G in Japan Recall Chips

TOKYO (AP) – The Japanese unit of Procter & Gamble said Tuesday it
is recalling 800,000 cans of Pringles potato chips after some were found
to contain genetically modified potatoes that are banned in Japan.

The gene-altered NewLeaf Plus and NewLeaf Y, developed by Monsanto
Co.(NYSE:MON – news), based in Creve Coeur, Missouri, are approved
for consumption in the United States but not in Japan.

The potato chips were produced between August and April, and most of
the 8 million cans have already been sold, said Shigeyuki Matsui,
spokesman for Procter & Gamble Far East.

Biotech crops have been developed to increase their resistance to
herbicides or pests and are a growing industry in the United States.

But opposition to biotech foods is strong in Japan, where many people
are worried about the health effects.

In April, a law went into effect in Japan requiring tests for biotech
products. The biotech potatoes were not recalled earlier because the
tests for detecting NewLeaf Plus and NewLeaf Y were not available
until late May, Matsui said.

Procter & Gamble will begin tests to prevent the biotech potatoes from
entering Japan again, he said. He refused to say how much the recall
would cost.

Last month, two Japanese companies recalled potato snacks that
contained NewLeaf Plus and NewLeaf Y. Thirty-five biotech crops have
been approved for food in Japan.

Importer halts unsafe potato chips from the US

By Chen Hong (China Daily)
Updated: 2007-12-07 07:15

SHENZHEN: Potato chip imports containing the banned carcinogenic additive potassium bromate were halted after failing to pass quarantine in July, the importer in Zhuhai told China Daily on Thursday.

If such chips from the United States make their way to store shelves, they were probably brought in from unauthorized importers, a producer representative said.

The Department of Import and Export Food Safety under the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine recently published a list of unqualified food and cosmetic products imported by China in July and August. The list includes three batches of potato chips imported by Zhuhai Duty Free Enterprises Group.

A 95-kg shipment of Pringles potato chips made by US-based Procter & Gamble (P&G) and two batches of potato chips from Japan-based Bourbon were found to contain the additive on July 10 and July 27, respectively.

“We destroyed all the potato chips in stock and immediately stopped their importation in July, when we were notified the products were unsafe,” a company spokesman surnamed Gu said.

The products were sold in duty-free shops run by the company in Zhuhai before the notification and were quickly pulled from shelves, he said. But sales figures prior to the products’ removal from shelves were unavailable.

P&G China also expressed regret over the incident and reiterated that Pringles potato chips sold in mainland markets – solely produced by the only authorized factory, based in Fujian Province – are safe.

It has stopped importing potato chips through its sole authorized importer, a Guangzhou-based trade company, since March, external relations manger of P&G China Charles Zhang told China Daily Thursday.

“We have strictly abided by the Chinese authorities’ guidelines against the use of potassium bromate in our mainland factory,” Zhang said. “What we imported before did not contain the substance, because they were sourced from a P&G factory in Belgium, and EU food safety criteria are quite similar to China’s.”

China banned the use of potassium bromate in flour in 2005, as did several Western countries, including the European Union, Australia and New Zealand. It is still permitted in the US and Japan.

Zhang explained that Pringles potato chips imported from the US and sold in some mainland markets have nothing to do with his company, which could be supplied by parallel importers the company never authorized.

Potassium bromate is an additive usually used in bread to enhance taste. Studies show excessive potassium bromate could harm human’s central nervous systems, blood and kidneys, in addition to being carcinogenic.

In the Matter of Daniel Smith, MMS, and the FDA: Let Freedom Ring

Lately I’ve been taking my time before saying what’s on my mind, but I am pleased to report that Daniel Smith, who the FDA and Department of Justice chose to make an example of in their campaign to protect the pharmaceutical oligarchy by discouraging the sale and use of MMS, is no longer being held in custody. He and his wife Karis were released on bail last week. However, while he is in a better position to prepare their legal defense, they are not free citizens yet as far as the law is concerned.

Let’s be clear that they are, and always will be free human beings, but the actual realm where true slavery, or freedom rings is, is in the mind and heart. Daniel and Karis are free citizens where it counts. I am confident that the world around them will reflect this truth in due time.

I spoke to Daniel a couple days ago. He and Karis were incarcerated for 31 days. Away from their children, callously stripped of their ability to support them by zealous and ambitious prosecutors seeking to build their own reputations as public ass kickers. Except for the grace of friends and well-wishers, they might still be behind bars, which is where the prosecution wanted them. One friend put his house up as collateral, another guaranteed notes on each, to help them make bail and post bond.

Unlike the way you see things on TV and in the movies, where the presumed innocent but guilty defendant is cleaned up, shaved, and gets a haircut in order to look like a right and upstanding citizen while his “mouthpiece” (an officer of the court, mind you) tries to convince the judge that he is ready to return to society, the presumed guilty but innocent Daniel was unkempt, unshaven, and had been forcibly drugged (some “vaccine”) a week or so earlier, when he stood before the judge and spoke for himself.

This is NOT Daniel Smith, but the DOJ would like you to fear him.

The government continues to try the case in the court of public opinion through the media. A recent article, published February 28, 2013 by the Medford (Oregon) Mail Tribune, but picked up on the Oregon Public Broadcasting web site, reports how Federal prosecutors attempted to keep Daniel and Karis in jail, claiming they were a flight risk.

The prosecutors actually sought to maintain the perception that Smith is a menace to society, making him an example for anyone else who dares try to mess with their policies, irrespective of whether or not they are intelligent. The bureaucrats continue to underestimate the intelligence and power of each human citizen that seeks, embraces, embodies, knows, and therefore speaks truth.

The government pleads its case to the public in the article, angling to get an “aware” jury pool if the case goes to trial. They’re not even claiming that MMS does any harm, in spite of its danger being THEIR ORIGINAL CONTENTION. My guess is that since the real science doesn’t support their claim, they’re steering clear.

According to the article, prosecutors claim that government agents made “numerous” undercover purchases of MMS through the PGL web site after PGL became a private membership association. What they didn’t say, and the writer probably didn’t know, was that each “member” signed a waiver, essentially taking responsibility for their action, as it is their right to do. Even with that waiver, Daniel was aware of the “undercover” purchases.

The article continues to paint the chlorine dioxide anion (ClO2-), which mixing MMS and a light acid together produces, in broad brush strokes. If they bothered to do a modicum of homework – including the writer who wrote the Medford Mail Tribune article – they might realize that the chlorine dioxide (ClO2) that is produced to bleach textiles and disinfect wastewater, is a very different chemical animal than the product that Daniel Smith sold.

Even vaccinated 7th graders can figure that out if they care to look!

Sadly, MMS proponents don’t make the distinction either. While interest in MMS continues, some vendors are scrambling to minimize their potential risk. A new one, MMSGREENLIFE.COM has the gall to include “Green Life” in its name, then say that while it “feels bad about the posistion of Project Green Life, MMSGREENLIFE is OPEN as USUAL!” Lacking any real evidence of harm, I wouldn’t be surprised if this site was run by government operatives, distributing chemicals labeled as “MMS” so that they can get some “reliable” harmful data. The choice of that name is that incongruent with respect or common sense.

I can’t see any other reason how, or why the operators of the site, which appeared out the blue, (registered in November, 2011 while the government was actively trying to build a case against Smith), or anyone within the MMS community wouldn’t strongly suggest that there is a large ocean to choose names from, and that it’s a pretty salacious move to try to capitalize on any recognition that might yet be associated with the name. They had to know it might happen since they were aware enough to deny any connection with Smith’s Project Green Life. Just my opinion, but I’d steer clear of it. Even their description of chlorine dioxide is as vague and misleading as the FDA’s. This is another reason that the MMS community should lead the understanding about the chlorine dioxide anion (ClO2-), which is not a bleaching agent for textiles or wood pulp, has an oxidation potential of 0.95V, and has been scientifically proven to be harmless inside the body.

I’m not speaking as a proponent of MMS. I prefer to drink my own urine now, as it has everything MMS contains, and more, and the body knows how to mix it to serve its specific needs. Yet, I know that MMS is better than 90+ percent of all the medications that the FDA has approved for doctors, medical personnel, and hospitals to use, which is the real reason why they’re trying to shut it down.

But shame on them for doing harm to people who have done none. The FDA’s “laws” aren’t above humanity. They’re not even based on truth, as no “drug” can, or will ever cure any disease. The public is being brainwashed by the brainwashed. It’s time to wake up, and stand up.

If MMSGREENLIFE.COM isn’t a front for an undercover government operation, it is a mere annoyance compared to the bigger problem of bullying of citizens by government agencies. Yet, a government that would openly consider “droning” its own citizens would certainly not be above other forms of blatant disregard for human life. What else do we need to see?

While such behavior is reprehensible, it’s easy to see how it evolved, now that government officials have begun describing and rationalizing the circumstances they might see fit to use drones to kill Americans on American soil. I comment about it more at the beginning of last week’s Talk For Food (click here to download mp3).

The last people who should be running a “war on terror” are the terrified. I’m suggesting that the policy makers are the terrified ones. They don’t appear to understand that the “do unto others rule applies to them too.”

“What you do unto others, you do unto yourself.”

I’m not afraid of a drone attack, as I would never wish it on anyone. I am not afraid of an assassin, as I would never even wish it on anyone. It’s not that I’m not capable making such wishes; I simply know that my thoughts have power, and I choose to use my thoughts and intention on events that I am serious about, which is RESTORING HARMONY, not propagating more harm.

The United States Corporation, under the guise of representing The People, is propagating more HARM around the world by remote control, “secure” not only in the idea that they represent “good,” but that they can get away with their crimes against humanity. The people who have salivated at the specter of “bringing down” Daniel Smith, are just as controlled as are drones, and equally mindless and heartless.

Daniel Smith has an active mind and heart. It is his best protection from harm, as it is for each of us.

The Justice Department is devoting a great amount of money, time, and human resources in order to make the public think that Daniel Smith, an intelligent, sincere, human loving and respecting American, is a criminal, while they, and their related agencies, FACILITATE countless INHUMANE, and thereby criminal acts against individuals, both foreign and domestic. The only “sin” for many of these people, was uncovering and advancing solutions to social problems that billions and trillions of research dollars have yet to produce. The government’s “War on MMS” is but one of many campaigns that have been run by various alphabet agencies in an effort to squelch real progress while advancing imaginary perceptions of gain.

We are led to believe that the “terror” threat is abroad, when much of their activity is instigated by individuals located in the city-state of Washington, DC. They themselves have been puppets to other manipulators who have long saw themselves as “above the law.”

They weren’t, and aren’t.

All human beings are subject to the same Universal Laws. There’s no getting around that. There’s no way, or place to hide. What you do unto others, you WILL do to yourself.

Since when did innocence stop being "presumed?"

Daniel Smith will be okay, whatever the verdict. He remains himself, having shed the web of fear that the DOJ tried to snare him in.

They just don’t seem to know what they’re doing to themselves.

Gotta love ‘em…

McDonald’s closing all restaurants in Bolivia as nation rejects fast food

Lance Devon June 13, 2013
http://www.infowars.com/mcdonalds-closing-all-restaurants-in-bolivia-as-nation-rejects-fast-food/

McDonald’s happy image and its golden arches aren’t the gateway to bliss in Bolivia. This South American country isn’t falling for the barrage of advertising and fast food cooking methods that so easily engulf countries like the United States. Bolivians simply don’t trust food prepared in such little time. The quick and easy, mass production method of fast food actually turns Bolivians off altogether. Sixty percent of Bolivians are an indigenous population who generally don’t find it worth their health or money to step foot in a McDonald’s. Despite its economically friendly fast food prices, McDonald’s couldn’t coax enough of the indigenous population of Bolivia to eat their BigMacs, McNuggets or McRibs.

One indigenous woman, Esther Choque, waiting for a bus to arrive outside a McDonald’s restaurant, said, “The closest I ever came was one day when a rain shower fell and I climbed the steps to keep dry by the door. Then they came out and shooed me away. They said I was dirtying the place. Why would I care if McDonald’s leaves [Bolivia]?”

Fast food chain remained for a decade, despite losses every year

The eight remaining McDonald’s fast food shops that stuck it out in the Bolivian city’s of La Paz, Cochabamba, and Santa Cruz de la Sierra, had reportedly operated on losses every year for a decade. The McDonald’s franchise had been persistent over that time, flexing its franchise’s deep pockets to continue business in Bolivia.

Any small business operating in the red for that long would have folded and left the area in less than half that time. Even as persistent as McDonald’s was in gaining influence there, it couldn’t continue operating in the red. After 14 years of presence in the country, their extensive network couldn’t hold up the Bolivian chain. Store after store shut down as Bolivia rejected the McDonald’s fast food agenda. Soon enough, they kissed the last McDonald’s goodbye.

Deep cultural rejection

The McDonald’s impact and its departure from Bolivia was so lasting and important, that marketing managers immediately filmed a documentary called, “Why McDonalds’s went broke in Bolivia.”

Featuring, cooks, nutritionist, historians, and educators, this documentary breaks down the disgusting reality of how McDonald’s food is prepared and why Bolivians reject the whole fast food philosophy of eating.

The rejection isn’t necessarily based on the taste or the type of food McDonald’s prepared. The rejection of the fast food system stemmed from Bolivian’s mindset of how meals are to be properly prepared. Bolivians more so respect their bodies, valuing the quality of what goes into their stomach. The time it takes for fast food to be prepared throws up a warning flag in their minds. Where other cultures see no risk, eating McDonald’s every week; Bolivians feel that it just isn’t worth the health risk. Bolivians seek well prepared, local meals, and want to know that their food was prepared the right way.

This self respect helps Bolivians avoid processed “restructured meat technology,” often used by fast food joints like McDonald’s.

The McRib: 70 ingredients all restructured into one

Did you know that the McRib is processed with 70 different ingredients which include azodicarbonamide, a flour-bleaching agent often used in producing foamed plastics? McRib’s are basically “restructured meat technology” containing a mixture of tripe, heart, and scalded stomach. Proteins are extracted from this muscle mixture and they bind the pork trimmings together so they can be molded in a factory. The McRib is really just a molded blob of restructured meat, advertised and sold like fresh ribs. There’s nothing real about it, the preparation or the substance. In fact, McRibs really came about because of a chicken shortage. The restructured meat technology approach kept the McRib on the menu, despite the shortage, and the profits continued rolling in.

This is the very disgusting idea that the Bolivians have rejected in their country.

The Bolivian rejection of McDonald’s has set a proper example for the rest of the world to follow.

Health Victory: McDonalds finally removes pink slime from hamburgers

Monday, April 09, 2012 by: Alexander Frantzis

http://www.naturalnews.com/035508_pink_slime_hamburgers_McDonalds.html

(NaturalNews) Following years of hard-hitting journalism highlighting the adulteration of hamburger meat with ammonia, McDonalds recently announced it had at last stopped doing so late last year.

Numerous activists including celebrity chef Oliver Stone, and health ranger Mike Adams had spoken out against the practice. By sanitizing discarded disease ridden meat with ammonium hydroxide (also used in glass cleaners, explosives and fertilizers) inedible meat can reenter the marketplace.

In Stone’s own words “Basically we’re taking a product that would be sold in the cheapest form for dogs and making it ‘fit’ for humans.”

Due to the widespread unsanitary conditions within the meat industry, preventing severe bacterial contamination of meats is nearly impossible, especially for any discarded scraps. Food poisoning during bacterial outbreaks is the most visible symptom of this problem, and in turn the sole focus.

To quote Adams: “This is all fine with the USDA, which endorses the procedure as a way to make the hamburger beef “safe” enough to eat. Ammonia kills e.coli, you see, and the USDA doesn’t seem to be concerned with the fact that people are eating ammonia in their hamburgers.”

Ammonium Hydroxide’s questionable safety

To address this conundrum, the USDA has classified ammonium hydroxide as “generally regarded as safe,” meaning, like GMOs, its assumed lack of toxicity is not up for debate. A cursory Google search however shows otherwise, listing issues including permanent eye damage, carcinogenic properties and increasing the size of hormonally sensitive organs .

McDonalds however was quick to distance themselves from any negative PR prompting their decision, simply stating, “At the beginning of 2011, we made a decision to discontinue the use of ammonia-treated beef in our hamburgers. This product has been out of our supply chain since August of last year. This decision was a result of our efforts to align our global standards for how we source beef around the world.”

These global standards do however include many other toxic additives

Investigators across the Atlantic in England found a wide range of other equally dubious additives still included in McDonalds food, identifying 78 from the most recent ingredient list McDonalds provides. Here are a few examples:

• MSG: An excitotoxin (labeled as yeast extract)

• Propylene Glycol: the less toxic version of ethylene glycol (antifreeze)

• Ammonium sulfate: similar to ammonium hydroxide, but used for dough consistency instead of meat decontamination.

• Sodium Benzoate: A preservative — linked to a variety of ailments — that becomes benzene, a highly toxic carcinogen when in the presence of heat or acid.

McDonalds choice to finally remove one additive, presumably on account of the bad publicity garnished from both its grotesque appearance and ability to conceal fecal matter contamination (the primary source of e-coli) in it’s meat, is admirable. Yet, it is not the only factor to address and by no means a clean bill of health for these burgers. These other contaminants deserve just as much consumer attention and government regulation.

Worse still, the pink slime hasn’t gone away either. As the USDA considers ammonium hydroxide a component in a production procedure, it is not a listed ingredient, and there is no way to easily discern if processed meat contains it. This may partially account for its widespread presence in other discount markets including school lunches. Even with this chemical “protection,” salmonella and e-coli incidents have repeatedly occurred in ammonia treated junk meat.

Eating real, natural meat might just be the way to go!
