'Disastrous adverse effects' of HPV vaccine exposed in court testimony, the horrors of this industry can no longer be censored

A woman is suing the Irish government to compel it to withdraw the license for Merck's Gardasil brand HPV vaccine, alleging that her daughter suffered "horrendous adverse effects" after receiving the vaccine as recommended under the Irish school vaccination program.

Cancer is not unique -- It's the end stage of oxidative stress and inflammation

Diseases display a variety of symptoms, but curiously enough, there is a common denominator!
The Truth About "All Disease"

A recent series presented via GreenMedInfo, "The Truth About Cancer" could have been more accurately titled, "The Truth about All Disease." The elements of cancer protocols: nutrient/mineral correction, detoxification, helpful supplements, various energy therapies and lifestyle choices, really apply to healing all chronic disease. The idea of personal empowerment applies to all disease as well. Survivors emerged from the shock of a cancer diagnosis, stepped away from conventional treatments and "willed" their healing, which proves once again the critical importance of mental states and the reality of placebo-nocebo effects. Yes, it can be done!

We get misdirected by complex medical studies and lose sight of the common denominator in chronic disease; all are symptoms of oxidative stress and inflammation. Every symptom that ever occurs starts with a shortage of cellular bio-energy: electrons. Colds, bronchitis, indigestion, high blood pressure, bleeding gums or depression are first signs of inflammation and a progression toward heart disease, arthritis and cancers that arrive decades later. The fooler is that symptoms may appear in different locations in the body, yet reflect a predictable correlation with a range of specific insults. So cut to the cure, identify the root causes that come from toxins, wrong nutrition, poor lifestyle choices and negative personality traits/emotional stress/fear of death. Take appropriate steps at this seed level.


The whooping cough-vaccine connection

Pertussis (whooping cough) has re-emerged in countries with high vaccination coverage and low mortality. Although it is listed as one of the top causes of vaccine preventable deaths, reports of a global resurgence originated in countries with low mortality and high vaccination coverage. Priorities are to decrease infant mortality by improving coverage and timeliness of vaccination and implementing pertussis surveillance, but vaccinations don't seem to be working and this is of great concern.

More recently some countries with sustained high vaccine coverage have experienced increases in pertussis, especially in older children and adults, the reasons for which are complex. The issue may stem from under diagnosis or missed diagnosis and under-reporting, which hinder surveillance, as well as gaps in our knowledge of levels of herd immunity generated by the vaccination programs.

Whooping cough is a relatively new infectious disease afflicting human beings, compared with other infectious diseases, and is undergoing a resurgence despite decades of vaccination.

Comment: The whooping cough vaccine is just as flawed and ineffective as all the rest. It purports to offer protection, yet contributes to the spread of the disease itself.


The whole toxic enchilada: Monsanto's Roundup

Last week, while we waited for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to announce whether or not the agency will give Monsanto's Roundup a free pass by green lighting the use of glyphosate for another 15 years, the EPA's counterpart in the EU made its own big announcement.

Glyphosate is "unlikely to cause cancer" said the authors of the new report by the European Union Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

That headline, music to Monsanto's ears, seemed to fly in the face of the findings published earlier this year by the World Health Organization (WHO). After extensive review of the evidence, all 17 of WHO's leading cancer experts said glyphosate is a "probable human carcinogen?"

Sustainable Pulse (SP), publisher of global news on GMOs and other food-related issues, quickly reported the glaring omission made by the majority of news sources reporting on EFSA's findings.

FDA finally approves 'Frankenfish' - the first genetically modified animal you can eat

© AquaBounty Technologies
A fast-growing salmon has become the first genetically modified species in the world to be approved for human consumption and it will not have to be labelled as "GM food".

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) yesterday ended 20 years of tortuous negotiations by approving the GM Atlantic salmon, which grows twice as fast as ordinary salmon and can be grown in fish tanks in warehouses on land.

FDA approval in the US raises the prospect that the GM salmon could also eventually be approved in other parts of the world, including Europe, despite fierce public opposition to GM food.

The so-called "Frankenfish" has been bitterly opposed by a coalition of more than 20 anti-GM organisations but their attempts to prevent it from reaching American supermarkets and eventually the global market appear now to have failed.

Comment: Read the following articles for a more in depth look at the Genetically Modified 'Frankenfish:

EMF hypersensitivity has finally been medically proven

Finally, there's documented medical proof that electromagnetic hypersensitivity is a real-time health issue that actually can be verified using standard medical procedures and testing capabilities.

An international group of researchers aced it when they published their findings from the clinical study "Metabolic and Genetic Screening of Electromagnetic Hypersensitive Subjects as a Feasible Tool for Diagnostics and Intervention" in the November 2014 issue of Mediators of Inflammation.

So, the million-dollar-question has to be, "When will utility companies get up to speed on the latest in microwave technology damage to the human body?" Also, "When will public utility commissions nationwide institute proper procedures to protect consumers from such damage?"

Pennsylvanians currently are being bombarded by non-thermal health problems from public utility companies' electric, natural gas and water Smart Meters, which operate using microwave technology.

Furthermore, the PA House Consumer Affairs Committee Chair Robert Godshall sits on Opt-Out Bills that will permit electrosensitive consumers and others to keep safe analog meters, which have been in use for decades.

Class action lawsuit filed against McDonald's: 1,000 customers exposed to Hepatitis A

An employee at a McDonald's location in Waterloo, New York, was diagnosed with hepatitis A. Now the branch's owner, Jascor Inc., is being sued by a customer for potentially exposing people to the virus, which causes liver infections.

McDonald's customer Christopher Welch, filed a class-action status lawsuit on Nov. 18, which could impact more than 1,000 customers, Reuters and Eater reported.


Breaking Big Pharma: Doctors call for immediate drug advertising ban

According to a major U.S. doctor group, drug companies should stop advertising to consumers directly. The doctors claim that the ads push patients to pursue expensive treatments and inflate the demand for extra therapies.
"It's a disgusting, dishonorable way to generate sales - but it works. In 2008, the House Commerce Committee found that every $1,000 spent on drug ads produces 24 new patients,1 and a 2003 research report found that prescription rates for drugs promoted with DTC ads were nearly seven times greater than those without such promos.2 Ethics aside, these consumer hustles have proven to be profit bonanzas." -Dr. Mercola
During a recent vote at the annual meeting in Atlanta, the nation's American Medical Association decided that they were going to call for a ban on consumer drug commercials in magazines and television commercials.

Comment: Warning: drug ads are harmful to your health:
In his excellent book, Generation RX, Greg Critser traces the history of direct-to-consumer advertising and unveils early concerns from major drug companies that it would raise fears of disease, sell unnecessary pills and corrupt the doctor/patient relationship. That's exactly what has happened and Pharma is lamenting it all the way to the bank.


Monsanto desperate to stop GMO labeling and glyphosate carcinogen warnings as GMO chickens come home to roost

© Lucy Nicholson / Reuters
The seven hundred years-old expression, "curses are like chickens; they always come home to roost," rarely has been more appropriate than to describe what is happening to the world's largest purveyor of gene-manipulated or GMO seeds and paired chemical toxins. It couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of genocidal eugenicists. Monsanto Corporation of St Louis is apparently in a deep decline.

Ever since 1992 when that nasty US President George H. W. Bush conspired - yes, Virginia, conspiracies exist - with the leadership of Monsanto to unleash GMOs on an unwitting American population, Monsanto seemed unstoppable.

With the help of Bush, who made a decree that no US Government agency be allowed to independently test GMO seeds or their chemicals for health and safety - the fraudulent and totally unscientific Doctrine of Substantial Equivalence - Monsanto could make its own fraudulent doctored tests and give them to US or EU agencies as valid. As a result, GMO seeds took over American agriculture, based on a pack of lies to farmers that they would raise yields and decrease chemical use. Monsanto spread its GMO far around the world, through bribery as in Indonesia, and through the unusual machinations of the Government of the United States. Monsanto paid scientists to lie about its products safety.

It used the corrupt Brussels European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to back its position, even when alarming studies such as the famous September 2012 Food and Chemical Toxicology peer-reviewed study by Prof. Gilles-Eric Seralini created shock waves around the world. The Seralini study, the first ever long term, two year study of GMO diet with a group of 200 rats found shocking effects. Among them that,"female rats fed Monsanto GMO maize died 2 - 3 times more than controls, and more rapidly... Females developed large mammary tumors almost always more often than, and before, controls; the pituitary was the second most disabled organ; the sex hormonal balance was modified by GMO and Roundup treatments."

Monsanto then set about to kill the messenger by pressuring the Food & Chemical Toxicology journal to hire a former Monsanto employee, Richard E. Goodman, who promptly declared Seralini's study "unscientific" and deleted it, an act almost without precedent in science journals. A year later both Goodman and the journal's editor-in-chief were forced to step down and Seralini's article was republished in another scientific journal. But the scientific character assassination against Seralini had a chilling effect as Monsanto wanted.

Comment: As people are becoming more aware of the dangers of GMOs and the chemicals used to grow them, Monsanto is desperately struggling to hold on to its dwindling profit margins. As the author rightfully states, this couldn't happen to a more deserving bunch of psychopathic, genocidal eugenicists.
