Vaccines: Legal child endangerment

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, like all states in the USA, has a child endangerment statute. Currently, that statute is being invoked in a legal rehash of the Jerry Sandusky 'pedophile' allegations for several Penn State University higher-ups.

Allegedly, one of the current defendants saw Mr. Sandusky with a minor boy in a shower and did not report that to authorities. Now, for that omission, he faces up to five years imprisonment under "child endangerment" charges.

What's child endangerment per the statue?
Pennsylvania child abuse laws, like the abuse laws found in other states, fall under the criminal or penal code. The crime is broadly defined to include any type of cruelty inflicted on a child, such as mental abuse, physical abuse, sexual assault or exploitation, and neglect. Charges for physical child abuse often include assault and battery. Additionally, child abuse laws include provisions requiring certain adults with access to children (such as teachers and doctors) to report signs of abuse. [1]
What happens when the abusers are teachers and doctors? Teachers and doctors, who commit sexual abuse, when reported, are tried, convicted and sentenced.


Germ scientists prove '5-sec rule' for dropping food on the floor is true

You can safely eat food dropped on the floor as long as you pick it up within five seconds, according to a germ expert, thus proving the so-called 'five-second rule.'

Professor Anthony Hilton of Aston University said that although eating food off the floor can never be totally without risk, the often-cited five-second rule is a pretty safe bet.

Hilton will demonstrate his theory at the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham as part of a series of national science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) events held across the country.

"Obviously, food covered in visible dirt shouldn't be eaten, but as long as it's not obviously contaminated, the science shows that food is unlikely to have picked up harmful bacteria from a few seconds spent on an indoor floor," he told the Independent. "Our research has shown that the nature of the floor surface, the type of food dropped on the floor and the length of time it spends on the floor can all have an impact on the number that can transfer."

Commenting on the forthcoming experiment, Paul Jackson, head of the fair organizers EngineeringUK, told the paper: "This is a simple example of how science is present in everyday life. From testing how safe food is to inventing new food and drink, the limits of how we can apply science and engineering are endless," Jackson added.

Comment: And...there is probably a nifty mandatory vaccine for this, just in case. One person's perceived immunity can be another's doom. Given the unlimited number of icky things of which your sandwich could potentially come into contact, the finding is unlimitedly suspect. Your choice what to believe, clumsy or not.


Why the war on salt is misguided and dangerous

The theory that salt is bad for you and contributes to high blood pressure and heart disease is an idea that has become more or less cemented as dogma. Alas, the war on salt has had a number of drawbacks and unintended consequences.

For starters, evidence shows having the correct potassium to sodium balance influences your risk for hypertension and heart disease to a far greater extent than high sodium alone, and the Western diet tends to be lacking in potassium.

Moreover, when lowering salt in processed foods, many manufacturers took to adding monosodium glutamate (MSG) instead — a flavor enhancer associated with a number of health problems, including obesity, headaches, fatigue and depression.

Due to its ability to overexcite neurons, MSG may even raise your risk for neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Lou Gehrig's disease

So-called 'harmless' NSAID's linked to increased risk of cardiac arrest

Use of any NSAID was associated with a 31% increased risk of cardiac arrest.
Painkillers considered harmless by the general public are associated with increased risk of cardiac arrest, according to research published today in the March issue of European Heart Journal - Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are among the most commonly used drugs worldwide and some, including ibuprofen, are available over the counter.

"Allowing these drugs to be purchased without a prescription, and without any advice or restrictions, sends a message to the public that they must be safe," said author Professor Gunnar H. Gislason, professor of cardiology at Copenhagen University Hospital Gentofte, Denmark. "Previous studies have shown that NSAIDs are related to increased cardiovascular risk which is a concern because they are widely used."

The current study investigated the link between NSAID use and cardiac arrest. All patients who had an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in Denmark between 2001 and 2010 were identified from the nationwide Danish Cardiac Arrest Registry. Data was collected on all redeemed prescriptions for NSAIDs from Danish pharmacies since 1995. These included the non-selective NSAIDs (diclofenac, naproxen, ibuprofen), and COX-2 selective inhibitors (rofecoxib, celecoxib).



Is the dark really making me sad?

How do Scandinavians deal with long, dark winters? And what might this teach us about the relationship between our moods and sunlight? By Linda Geddes.

The inhabitants of Rjukan in southern Norway have a complex relationship with the sun. "More than other places I've lived, they like to talk about the sun: when it's coming back, if it's a long time since they've seen the sun," says artist Martin Andersen. "They're a little obsessed with it." Possibly, he speculates, it's because for approximately half the year, you can see the sunlight shining high up on the north wall of the valley: "It is very close, but you can't touch it," he says. As autumn wears on, the light moves higher up the wall each day, like a calendar marking off the dates to the winter solstice. And then as January, February and March progress, the sunlight slowly starts to inch its way back down again.



Got sleep? What a bad night's sleep really does to your body

Dr Sara Gottfried is, in her own words, an "under sleeper". In our over-caffeinated, over-worked and gadget-addicted society, she's far from alone: researchers from Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Manchester and Surrey universities have found people are sleeping almost two fewer hours a night than they were in the 1960s - and our health is deteriorating as a result.

"We are the supremely arrogant species; we feel we can abandon four billion years of evolution and ignore the fact that we have evolved under a light-dark cycle," says Oxford University's Professor Russell Foster, who worked on the study. "What we do as a species, perhaps uniquely, is override the clock. And long-term acting against the clock can lead to serious health problems." These problems include an increased risk of cancer, heart disease, type-2 diabetes and obesity.


Mercury: The Quintessential Anti-Nutrient

Mercury has many negative biological effects on humans. When methylmercury is either absorbed or ingested it eventually reaches the blood-brain barrier.
  • The chronic effects of cumulative, low-dose mercury exposure are underrecognized by both mainstream and alternative health authorities and, consequently, by the public. Mercury can cause or contribute to most chronic illnesses, including neurological disorders, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, adrenal and thyroid problems, autoimmunity, digestive disorders, allergies, chemical sensitivities, mental illness, sleep disorders, and chronic infections such as Lyme and Candida. Mercury toxicity should be suspected in individuals experiencing multiple health problems.
  • Diagnosis of chronic mercury toxicity is often difficult because the body's natural defenses may mask or delay symptoms. Natural defenses are a function of genetic susceptibility, epigenetic factors, micronutrient status, and allostatic load (cumulative wear and tear on the body). Furthermore, individuals who retain mercury may counterintuitively show low levels in blood, urine, and hair.
  • The developmental window from conception through early childhood is one of extreme vulnerability to mercury. Mercury is an epigenetic toxicant (affecting future gene expression) as well as a neurotoxicant. Damage may be permanent; therefore, prevention is key.
  • For most people mercury is the most significant toxicant in the body. By promoting oxidative stress and depleting antioxidant defenses, including the glutathione system, mercury impairs the body's response to toxicants in general including mercury itself.
  • Mercury toxicity creates a need for extra nutrition, both to repair damage and to provide ample enzyme cofactors that can push blocked enzymes. Carbohydrate intolerance can be a symptom of mercury toxicity, and fat can be a preferred fuel. Many people with chronic mercury toxicity have found a nutrient-dense diet to be a useful starting point for symptom relief. Individualized supplementation may also be helpful to overcome the extreme nutritional depletion and unnatural toxic state.

Mumps vaccine fails, so CDC recommends...more vaccines!

© USA Today
Recent mumps outbreaks in the U.S. have health officials and regulators considering the addition of a third MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine to the recommended childhood vaccine schedule.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently recommends that children get two doses of MMR vaccine; the first dose is recommended between the ages of 12 and 15 months, and the second dose between 4 and 6 years.1

In the U.S., vaccination rates for MMR are high, with more than 91 percent of 19- to 35-month-olds having received one or more doses.2 However, the mumps portion of the vaccine is not 100 percent effective.

According to the CDC, even after two doses the mumps component is only about 88 percent effective, with a range of 66 percent to 95 percent. Effectiveness after one dose is about 78 percent, with a range of 49 percent to 92 percent.3

As the CDC explained, "Mumps outbreaks can still occur in highly vaccinated U.S. communities, particularly in close-contact settings such as schools, colleges and camps," and that's precisely what we're seeing with the most recent outbreaks.



CDC document bombshell reveals list of vaccine excipients

Almost no one has any real idea what's found in vaccines. When they allow themselves to be injected with vaccines, they're oblivious to the fact that they are being injected with aborted human fetus cell lines or African Green Monkey kidney pus cells harvested from infected, disease primates. (See proof from the CDC, below.)

Yet, astonishingly, the CDC openly admits to all this (and more). In a PDF posted on the CDC website entitled "Vaccine Excipient & Media Summary," the CDC lists all the excipients currently used in vaccines being injected into adults and children across the United States. The CDC's list, current as of January 6, 2017, was "extracted from manufacturers' package inserts," according to the CDC.

The complete list is found in this CDC document (PDF). In case the CDC removes it — because they've been known to suddenly "memory hole" documents they don't want the public to see — we've also posted a copy at the Natural News servers (PDF).

The WI-38 cell line is widely known to be "derived from lung tissue of an aborted white (caucasian) female fetus," as even the pro-vaccine Wikipedia website admits. As the Coriell Institute for Medical Research explains about the MRC-5 cell line / WI-38:
The MRC-5 cell line was developed in September 1966 from lung tissue taken from a 14 week fetus aborted for psychiatric reason from a 27 year old physically healthy woman. The cell morphology is fibroblast-like. The karyotype is 46,XY; normal diploid male. Cumulative population doublings to senescence is 42-48. G6PD isoenzyme is type B.

Comment: Vaccines' dark inferno: What's not on the insert labels?
The vast majority of scientists, physicians, nurses, and public health educators trust that the ingredients in a vaccine have been individually and synergistically proven safe and ef­fective. The public believes that these vaccines, aside from their specified virus(es), are sterile solutions, free from undesirable contaminants not listed on the manufacturers' package inserts. When the pediatrician injects a vaccine into the muscle of a child, the parents' unquestioning faith is that this is the case. In other words, we want to believe that vaccines have been generated under perfect conditions for the safety of children and ourselves.

Our investigation shows that most people do not know what is actually in a vaccine: the active ingredients listed on product labels, the inert ingredients, and, most important, the hidden ingredients. Even more remote is taking the time to actually study the subject matter, review the scientific literature, and discover the truth for oneself. To our amazement, that truth was easy to find. But it is a truth that will scare the hell out of you...

Roberts's account of conversations between high-level members from the World Health Organization (WHO), federal health agencies, and expert vaccine scientists who determine whether a certain vaccine will be approved, is horrid. Her investigations are based on official meeting documents and her attendance at emergency vaccine meetings, and confirm that our world's vaccine and health experts agree that there is no solution in sight to resolve the potential threats posed by these hidden ingredients.1

The story begins with the vaccine industrial complex's attempt to reduce manufacturing costs by seeking government approval to use cancerous cell lines in the development of vaccines. The industry's rationale is that cancerous cells are "immortal." Current vaccine methodology relies on animal cells, such as fertilized hen embryos and monkey kidneys, that die quickly in culture. Using cancerous cell lines is also much cheaper than relying on the purchase of animals, especially monkeys, that need to be sacrificed for vaccine substrates.
