NYT reports more Pharma scams...breast cancer propaganda

These so called scientific studies and expert articles are being controlled by the drug is wide spread and includes lead Harvard doctors(Biederman), NPR radio show drug make goes on and on. The level of crap that we are bombarded with from drud TV ads to our confused family doctors is obscene. More than ever you must be pro-active to protect your family...especially since the FDA is caught up in this growing scandal. Here is a good place to start...go there after you read the TIMES article. Citizens for Health
Wyeth, the pharmaceutical company, paid ghostwriters to produce medical journal articles favorable to its female hormone replacement therapy Prempro, according to Congressional letters seeking more information about the company’s involvement in medical ghostwriting. At least one article was published even after a federal study found the drug raised the risk of breast cancer.

Western Lifestyle a real killer! HPV scare again!

Dec. 9, 2008 -- Cancer deaths are projected to more than double worldwide over the next two decades, largely from a dramatic increase in cancer incidence in low- and middle-income countries driven by tobacco use and increasingly Westernized lifestyles.

Global Cancer Deaths to Double by 2030
Report Predicts Poor Nations Will See Biggest Increases in Cancer

I did notice a flaw/propaganda in this says.....

"Roughly one in three cancers in low-income countries are caused by chronic infections like hepatitis B, human papilloma virus (HPV), and HIV. These cancers are increasingly preventable or treatable, but vaccination, screening, and treatment are not widely available in these countries. "

The hpv vaccine doesnt fully prevent or cure is only effective against a few of the 30 strains of HPV...and death may occur from the Vaccine alone.

this vaccine is a sham and a huge Money maker for Big pharma. It will not help you!

How to cure cancer??

Full articleScientists tell us that if we give our bodies the nutrition, water, sunlight, exercise and rest they’re designed to use, they should be good for 150 years. We’re only averaging half that, so we’re really screwing up. Most of us are screwing up on all five requirements.

How often do you sleep for eight hours, and in total darkness and quiet?

How often to you get out for at least a couple miles of fast walking?

Is it a news flash to you that your skin and eyes need to be exposed to the sun...and not through your car windows?

There’s no way you’re drinking the six to eight glasses of pure water every day that your body needs. Nutrition is where we are really doing a job on our bodies. We happily stuff in poisons like sugar, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, aspartame, and, by far the most insidious, cooked food.

When our body design was firmed up we were eating raw food. And that includes meat. I learned about that when I read Dr. Bruno Comby´s Maximize Immunity . He points out that in dog and cat research, those fed cooked food only lived about half as long as those eating raw food. Not being stupid, Dr. Comby started putting his patients on raw food diets...and curing them of cancer, AIDS, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and so on, He could find NO incurable illnesses.

Then I heard Dr. Lorraine Day on the radio explaining that she was days from death from cancer when she changed to raw food and totally cured herself. She, too, now says, "There are NO incurable illnesses." You can read all about it, plus many details, in my Secret Guide to Health.

Once you change over to a raw food diet, drink enough pure water, exercise out in the sun, and get enough sleep, any illness you have, no matter how supposedly incurable, will go away and you’ll never get sick again. The gift of health. There is no greater gift.

The downside is that if we can start convincing others to go raw, we could put the pharmaceutical industry out of business, and need doctors and hospitals mainly for emergencies. You see, medical schools don’t teach doctors about what makes us sick, only how to treat the symptoms. Oh, check Dr. Mercola, too. He’s eating 90% raw now.

If a solar flare, pole shift, a few nukes lobbed at us, or terrorists take down the power grid, its lights out. The gas pumps will stop working, and so will cars and trucks...and our food supply will stop. That’s when you’re going to be thankful you’ve a garden growing your food.

And doing it organically, plus remineralizing it with rock dust. And it won’t hurt to have some solar and/or wind power to keep your fridge and freezer going.

Even more likely is a stock market crash, with bread lines and soup kitchens as millions of people are out of work and their families hungry.

I was only seven in 1929, but I still remember the panic. And that depression kept going until World War II pulled us out of it. Now, with nuclear weapons, we can’t do that again. Luckily, my dad was in the airline business, which was just getting started, so he did okay.

That’s how I happened to be a passenger on the first airline flight between Philadelphia and New York in 1928. Newark airport had a cinder landing strip and a terminal the size of a mobile home.

It’s your choice. You can continue to eat the standard American diet, with a 50% chance of giving yourself cancer, and find yourself unprepared when things crash. Remember, we’ve moved most of our manufacturing to Asia, so as a country we are not making many products.

We’re buying Japanese cars and electronics, and Chinese melamine...and everything else. We really can’t continue to make money as a country just by printing it. Maybe it’s time for you to invest in some gardening books and a whole bunch of non-GMO heritage seeds. I’d like to see our schools encourage the students to start gardens, and if the families don’t have any garden space, for the communities or schools to help the kids find some land within bicycling distance.

If the government crashes, there goes welfare, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, subsidies, bail-outs, a thousand or so earmarks, the war on drugs, the war on poverty, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and millions of government workers (I’m using the term workers loosely). The only main survivor will be Congress´ generous retirement plan for themselves.

Safe food to eat could be hard to find, with so much of America’s farmland now devoted to growing GMO corn to make alcohol and the rest to factory-feed beef. The mineral-depleted, chemical fertilizer-poisoned farms aren’t going to be able to raise edible cabbages and spinach for us. With the dollar defunct, we won’t be able import much food either. What a terrible time to live in a city!

On the other hand, I’m sure Obama will fix everything, so no real need to worry. We can keep eating burgers and fries, and budgeting $7,350 per household member for so-called health care per year.

Yeah, make it a diet cola with that.

Movie to watch

Im watching this movie tonight, ill let you know if its any good tomorrow...

Why be choosey when shopping??

I remember when I lived in Santiago Chile and going shopping at we refer to as the "Farmer's Market". There were at least bi-weekly markets in all neighbor hoods. There were very few grocery stores, people bought what they ate fresh, had very little garbage, supported local economy, and didn't need to have a giant refrigerator and massive storage for food.

We can only afford to do this now because of the artificially low energy prices that we currently enjoy, and by externalizing the environmental costs of such a wasteful food system. We do this also to the detriment of small farmers by subsidizing large scale, agribusiness-oriented agriculture with government handouts and artificially cheap energy.

I reflect on those experiences when I shop here in Missoula or go to the store. At Costco or other stores like Walmart you can see people leave with a massive bounty of food stuff and other goods. My attitude has shifted from being a box store addict to, well lets see...ill describe it!! (its hard)

Cheap energy and agricultural subsidies facilitate a type of agriculture that is destroying and polluting our soils and water, weakening our communities, and concentrating wealth and power into a few hands. It is also threatening the security of our food systems, as demonstrated by the continued e-Coli, GMO-contamination, and other health scares that are often seen nowadays on the news.

We joined a co-op, Trying to ween my better half off Walmart, we buy much less processed and packaged food. We dint buy too much from the co-op yet and I cant bring myself to brave the Local farmer's market scene...and it is a scene. over all it takes discipline and quite a bit more effort to eat healthy and shop responsibly.

Why do it? It is not just about eating organic, as a matter of fact I don't really focus on organic as much as locally grown. We have some excellent local farmers who don't jump through the USDA hoop of red tape, bureaucracy and fees and actually have higher standards. So I can buy stuff where I know the grower, know where it was grown. Also it wasn't shipped 1500 miles and harvested prematurely to adjust for shelf life at the super market.

Most produce in the US is picked 4 to 7 days before being placed on supermarket shelves, and is shipped for an average of 1500 miles before being sold. And this is when taking into account only US grown products! Those distances are substantially longer when we take into consideration produce imported from Mexico, Asia, Canada, South America, and other places.

What is becoming an even more significant reason is that the money we spend supports a local economy, a local family, a local school. It doesnt go to a corporate farmer or some other agri-giant that has found a way to manipulate the system and is only socially responsible and organic on the nifty packaging.

These large-scale, agribusiness-oriented food systems are bound to fail on the long term, sunk by their own unsustainability. But why wait until we're forced by circumstance to abandon our destructive patterns of consumption? We can start now by buying locally grown food whenever possible. By doing so you'll be helping preserve the environment, and you'll be strengthening your community by investing your food dollar close to home. Only 18 cents of every dollar, when buying at a large supermarket, go to the grower. 82 cents go to various unnecessary middlemen. Cut them out of the picture and buy your food directly from your local farmer.

Family farms are an important part of the American tradition of self-sufficiency, forming the bedrock for communities across the U.S.

Since 1935, the U.S. has lost 4.7 million farms. Fewer than one million Americans now claim farming as a primary occupation.

Halliburton accused of supplying rotten food to U.S. forces
Birmingham Star
Monday 8th December, 2008

U.S military contractor KBR, a former subisidary of Halliburton, is facing a number of lawsuits over its activities in Iraq, and elsewhere.

KBR is the largest contractor for the United States Army and a top-ten contractor for the U.S. Department of Defense.

In one class-action suit Joshua Eller, a civilian who worked for the U.S. Air Force in 2006 at the Balad air force base northeast of Baghdad, alleges KBR 'knowingly and intentionally supplied to U.S. forces and other individuals food that was expired, spoiled, rotten, or that may have been contaminated with shrapnel, or other materials'.

KBR 'supplied water which was contaminated, untreated, and unsafe', Eller charged, detailing a number of examples.

He said Halliburton and KBR 'shipped ice served to U.S. forces in trucks that had been used to carry human remains and that still had traces of body fluids and putrefied remains.....................'READ THE REST HERE at the Birminghamstar

Asthma Drugs Controversy

FDA Safety Scientists Warn About Deaths - 4 Asthma Drugs

Full article here

Published: December 5, 2008
WASHINGTON — Two federal drug officials have concluded that asthma sufferers risk death if they continue to use four hugely popular asthma drugs — Advair, Symbicort, Serevent and Foradil. But the officials’ views are not universally shared within the government.

The two officials, who work in the safety division of the Food and Drug Administration, wrote in an assessment on the agency’s Web site on Friday that asthma sufferers of all ages should no longer take the medicines. A third drug-safety official concluded that Advair and Symbicort could be used by adults but that all four drugs should no longer be used by people age 17 and under.

Dr. Badrul A. Chowdhury, director of the division of pulmonary and allergy products at the agency, cautioned in his own assessment that the risk of death associated with the drugs was small and that banning their use “would be an extreme approach” that could lead asthmatics to rely on other risky medications.

Once unheard of, public disagreements among agency experts have occurred on occasion in recent years. The agency is convening a committee of experts on Wednesday and Thursday to sort out the disagreement, which has divided not only the F.D.A. but also clinicians and experts for more than a decade.

Sudden deaths among asthmatics still clutching their inhalers have fed the debate. But trying to determine whether the deaths were caused by patients’ breathing problems or the inhalers has proved difficult.

The stakes for drug makers are high. Advair sales last year were $6.9 billion and may approach $8 billion this year, making the medication GlaxoSmithKline’s biggest seller and one of the biggest-selling drugs in the world. Glaxo also sells Serevent, which had $538 million in sales last year

Top Five Ways to Avoid GMOs in Your Food
by Dr. Gregory Damato, Ph.D., citizen journalist
See all articles by this author

(NaturalNews) Recent polls across the world have consistently shown that, if they had a choice, 90% of people would actively seek to avoid GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in their food. The large multinational corporations of the world have gone through extensive measures to ensure the citizens of most nations have no possible way of knowing whether the food they and their children are eating contain contaminants of GMOs. The labelling of GMOs on the packaging of any foods in the US for example, is illegal. For example, if a company like Kellogs decided to include a full disclosure label on their cereal box that stated, "contains genetically modified corn" they could be sued by the manufacturer and then face possible prison time.

This is a very important issue because the democratic process of many nations has been surreptitiously supplanted by the corporatocracy of the seed company juggernauts. America has one of the highest levels of GMOs in their food chain in the western world with up to 85% of its pre-packaged and processed foods coming from genetic engineering. The people have never asked for GMOs- but got them anyway. The people then asked that they be properly labeled so they could avoid them- they were ignored. Therefore, seeing how our health freedom and well-being is consistently under attack from large multi-national corporations only seeking to increase profits at the expense of our health, what are we to do?

What we can do is simply try to avoid the GMO contaminants altogether and be extremely vigilant of how we spend our money and which companies we are choosing to support. Here are five simple and effective ways to decrease your contact with untested, toxic and dangerous GMOs.

1.) Buy Locally Produced Food

For now, GMOs are only used by large multinational corporations who buy direct from large farms. Produce from local mom and pop farmers have yet to become genetically modified. Purchasing locally grown food supports your local farmers and your health. Not to worry about GMO tomatoes and potatoes as they have all been pulled from the market.

2.) Buy Organically Grown Food

For now, the organic certification process is a relatively safe bet to ensure your food is free of GMOs, although this may not be the case in the future. Help support global sustainability by purchasing certified organically grown food.

3.) Avoid the Top Four GMO Crops of Soy, Corn, Canola and Cottonseed

This is a bit tricky as most blended oils in North America contain canola and cottonseed. Whenever you go out to dinner and receive anything fried, you are most likely consuming GMOs from the oil, not to mention transfat. A way around this would be to purchase 100% extra virgin olive oil, but be sure to avoid the term olive oil as most of it is blended with some GMO cottonseed or canola. Unless it specifically states "Non-GMO" or some derivation on the label, it most likely contains GMOs.

Likewise, any time you go you consume corn chips, tacos or soy milk, you are eating GMOs, again unless it specifically states Non-GMO or is organic.

4.) Avoid Artificial Additives and Sweeteners

Most of use are aware of the dangers behind the artificial sweetener and excitotoxin, aspartame (known as preservative E951), but may not be aware that it is created using genetic modification. Even the majority of vitamin C (asorbic Acid) and many B vitamins have been created via genetic modification. A Japanese company was forced to pull GMO L-Tryptophan off the market in 1989 after thousands of people became severely ill with many developing an extremely rare blood disorder called, Esinophilia-Myalgia Syndrome (EMS), although the FDA never publicly mentioned that GMO contamination was the true cause of the recall.

5.) Look For the Non-GMO Label

This includes all animals used for food because most are typically fed GMO feed. If it does not state Non-GMO on the label, then email the manufacturer and ask if they use GMO feed. It is best to attempt to contact all of the manufacturers of the foods you generally eat on a daily or even weekly basis and determine whether GMOs ingredients are utilized in the food. You have a fundamental right to know whether the foods you are consuming have been contaminated with GMOs. When in doubt always look for the Non-GMO label, and unfortunately assume that it has been genetically modified unless the opposite have been explicitly stated.


Monday Morning News tips

5 misconceptions about health care (published Sunday, 07 December 2008 22:47)

1. America has the best health care in the world.

Let's bury this one once and for all. The United States is No. 1 in only one sense: the amount we shell out for health care. We have the most expensive system in the world per capita, but we lag behind many developed countries on virtually every health statistic you can name.

How to Avoid "made in China"Poison??...not so easy!

Looking to avoid food products made in China? I don't blame you: The country has become the world capitol of contaminated foods.

A circulating email claims that UPC barcodes reveal the country of origin for food products. Anything made in China, the email informs us, will begin with three digits in the range of 690 to 695.

Products made in the U.S. begin with 00 to 13, says the email.

This information is false. NaturalNews looked into the barcode issue to determine the reliability of this advice and found it to be pure fiction.

Many nutritional supplements made in the U.S., for example, actually begin with 85, and there is no correlation between the country in which a UPC symbol is registered and where a particular product is actually manufactured.

It's far better to look for the phrase, "Made in USA" (or whatever country you're in). Definitely avoid food products that say, "Made in China."


Big Pharma and the war on drugs
Many ADHD drugs are DEA-controlled amphetamines, for example. Selling these drugs on the street is a felony, but prescribing them to children is "treatment."

In the early 1900's, the Bayer company actually developed and marketed Bayer Heroin for Kids. It was marketed as a cough medicine. Guess what? Heroin stops you from coughing. (You're so high that you forget to cough.) They also said it was non-addictive. Just like cigarettes.

Revolution: From Fear to Truth
(NaturalNews) The western world has purposely been misled, intimidated and hypnotized by fear from nearly all established institutions of civilization. The best way to wire an individual's brain for fear is to consistently state the exact same premise over and over again regardless of the veracity of such statements. As neuroscientists predict, individuals will unconsciously begin to believe such statements and the more often these ideas are reinforced, the stronger the hard wiring becomes.

We live in a semi-conscious state of terrorism where our minds have ostensibly been pre-programmed for fear. As history has consistently shown mankind, the best way to control a population is through the institutionalization of fear. Cancer, debt, disease, terrorism, sleeper cells, war, Al Qaeda, and death are just some of the key words promulgated throughout our daily lives

The American Medical Association, by the way, endorsed both Bayer Heroin for kids AND cigarettes.
