Big Pharma's Legacy of Corruption: Natural Substances Turned Into Pharmaceuticals Sold for Massive Profit

Big Pharma's Legacy of Corruption: Natural Substances Turned Into Pharmaceuticals Sold for Massive Profit | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

Wrong business model: "Tweak" those natural foods and herbs to make them patentable, lose some or all of the beneficial effects, and add undesirable "side" effects. Good for profit, but not good for health. 

Who's going to win, the pharmaceutical companies and their profits, or the people and our health?

This article was contributed by Lisa Spaulding.

I am posting it on Resource Plundering section but do please visit Local Health Traditions where I have posted Dr Mathias Rath's series of lectures on how the big pharma has been systematically manipulating natural molecules into a patented molecule. This has been going on for over 130-150 years. We really don't need these patented medicines. If these sorts of medicines were really required to keep in good health, humans would be extinct long before the pharmaceutical firms came on the scene.

The Direction of Medicine: A good assessment of drug patenting for profit, without concern or compassion for the safety and health of the patient; that includes financial health and the ability of citizens to find affordable supplements.

Researchers: Medical errors now third leading cause of death in United States

Researchers: Medical errors now third leading cause of death in United States | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

A new analysis shows that more than 250,000 deaths each year are due to these mistakes. 

 

The CDC should update its vital statistics reporting requirements so that physicians must report whether there was any error that led to a preventable death, Makary said. 

 

"We all know how common it is," he said. "We also know how infrequently it’s openly discussed." 

 

"When a plane crashes, we don’t say this is confidential proprietary information the airline company owns. We consider this part of public safety. Hospitals should be held to the same standards," Makary said.

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

Death and serious harm by medicine is a big problem ... and much of the data to determine how serious the problem is are buried, never to be reported.

CBD Relieves Depression Faster than Any Other Anti-Depressant

CBD Relieves Depression Faster than Any Other Anti-Depressant | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

“Our findings indicate that CBD could represent a novel fast antidepressant drug, via enhancing both serotonergic and glutamate cortical signaling through a 5-HT1A receptor-dependent mechanism,” researchers wrote

 

Unfortunately, due to the schedule I status of cannabis it has been difficult to do studies on the subject of CBD and depression until recently. However, this could soon change if congress were to pass the CARERS Act, which would successfully remove cannabidiol from the controlled substances act all together, while also rescheduling cannabis from Schedule I to Schedule II – which is something scientists, doctors, and advocates of reform have been hoping to see for years now. 

 

The fact that CBD could be used as an effective treatment for depression – and that it could start helping patients feel better within an hour of starting treatment – is simply incredible in and of itself. There are millions of people suffering from depression in the United States alone – antidepressants can be dangerous, addictive and expensive for life-long treatment...

How Plumbing (Not Vaccines) Eradicated Disease

How Plumbing (Not Vaccines) Eradicated Disease | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Vaccines get all the glory, but most plumbers will tell you that it was water infrastructure – sewage systems and clean water - that eradicated disease, and they’re right. 

 

Sanitation prevents disease by removing the cause of disease transmission, but this is not new information. Moses taught sanitation. He made many rules for encampments. The Greeks and the Romans created elaborate systems of aqueducts, baths, and drainage. When the Roman Empire crumbled, sanitation became a lost art. Civilization paid the price: plague after plague struck areas of dense population. 

 

Smallpox continued to infect Europe’s population until plumbing infrastructure became commonplace. Although, sanitation ended this disease, the smallpox vaccine takes the credit...

The Real Reason Wheat is Toxic (it’s not the gluten)

The Real Reason Wheat is Toxic (it’s not the gluten) | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

You’re going to want to sit down for this one. I’ve had some folks burst into tears in horror when I passed along this information before. 

 

Wheat harvest protocol in the United States is to drench the wheat fields with Roundup several days before the combine harvesters work through the fields as withered, dead wheat plants are less taxing on the farm equipment and allows for an earlier, easier and bigger harvest  

 

Pre-harvest application of the herbicide Roundup or other herbicides containing the deadly active ingredient glyphosate to wheat and barley as a desiccant was suggested as early as 1980.  It has since become routine over the past 15 years and is used as a drying agent 7-10 days before harvest within the conventional farming community.

Naomie Mullins's comment, April 10, 7:13 PM
Fructose inhibits the stimulation of insulin by glucose, so this means that eating ordinary sugar, sucrose (a disaccharide, consisting of glucose and fructose), in place of starch, will reduce the tendency to store fat. Eating “complex carbohydrates,” rather than sugars, is a reasonable way to promote obesity. Eating starch, by increasing insulin and lowering the blood sugar, stimulates the appetite, causing a person to eat more, so the effect on fat production becomes much larger than when equal amounts of sugar and starch are eaten. The obesity itself then becomes an additional physiological factor; the fat cells create something analogous to an inflammatory state. There isn't anything wrong with a high carbohydrate diet, and even a high starch diet isn't necessarily incompatible with good health, but when better foods are available they should be used instead of starches. For example, fruits have many advantages over grains, besides the difference between sugar and starch. Bread and pasta consumption are strongly associated with the occurrence of diabetes, fruit consumption has a strong inverse association.
http://raypeat.com/articles/articles/glycemia.shtml
Naomie Mullins's comment, April 10, 7:24 PM
Dr Ray Peat also says...
After decades of “education” to promote eating starchy foods, obesity is a bigger problem than ever, and more people are dying of diabetes than previously. The age-specific incidence of most cancers is increasing, too, and there is evidence that starch, such as pasta, contributes to breast cancer, and possibly other types of cancer.

The epidemiology would appear to suggest that complex carbohydrates cause diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. If the glycemic index is viewed in terms of the theory that hyperglycemia, by way of “glucotoxicity,” causes the destruction of proteins by glycation, which is seen in diabetes and old age, that might seem simple and obvious.

The Seas Will Save Us: How an Army of Ocean Farmers Is Starting an Economic Revolution

The Seas Will Save Us: How an Army of Ocean Farmers Is Starting an Economic Revolution | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Ocean farming isn’t just about food, it’s about transforming a workforce and restoring the sea. 

 

As ocean farmers, we reject aquaculture’s obsession with monoculture, an obsession similar to that of modern land farming. Our goal is diversity. It’s a sea-basket approach: We grow two types of seaweeds, four kinds of shellfish, and we harvest salt. But with more than 10,000 edible plants in the ocean, we’ve barely scratched the surface. We eat only a few species, and we grow basically none in the United States. We intend to de-sushify seaweed and invent a new native cuisine, not around our industrial palate of salmon and tuna but around the thousands of undiscovered ocean vegetables that are right outside our back door. 

 

Native seaweeds are an excellent source of vitamin C, calcium and iron. It might surprise those of you on the hunt for Omega-3s to learn that many fish do not create these heart-healthy nutrients by themselves—they consume them. By eating the plants fish eat, we get the same benefits while reducing pressure on fish stocks. So it’s time that we eat like fish. 

 

This is our opportunity to rearrange the seafood plate by moving ocean plants and bivalves to the center and wild fish to the edges. Ocean greens such as kelp are not small boutique crops. We can grow incredible amounts of food in small areas: 25 tons of greens and 250,000 shellfish per acre in five months. If you were to create a network of our ocean farms totaling the size of Washington state, you could feed the planet.

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

Ocean farming as described in this article could feed the world ... without external inputs and without degrading the environment.

5 Million Nigerians Oppose Monsanto's Plans to Introduce GMO Cotton and Corn

5 Million Nigerians Oppose Monsanto's Plans to Introduce GMO Cotton and Corn | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

One-hundred organizations representing more than 5 million Nigerians, including farmers, faith-based organisations, civil society groups, students and local community groups, have submitted a joint objection to the country’s National Biosafety Management Agency (NABMA) expressing serious concerns about human health and environmental risks of genetically altered crops. 

 

The groups’ petition follows Monsanto Agricultural Nigeria Limited’s own application to NAMBA that seeks to release GMO cotton (Bt cotton, event MON 15985) into the city of Zaria as well as surrounding towns.

 

Another application seeks confined field trials of two GMO corn varieties (NK603 and stacked event MON 89034 x NK603) in multiple locations in Nigeria. 

 

In a press release, the groups said they are particularly alarmed about the commercial release of Bt cotton into Nigeria, which is being phased out in Burkina Faso due to the “inferior lint quality” of the GMO cultivars.

Hyperbaric treatment for children with autism: a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, controlled trial

Hyperbaric treatment for children with autism: a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, controlled trial | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Background 

Several uncontrolled studies of hyperbaric treatment in children with autism have reported clinical improvements; however, this treatment has not been evaluated to date with a controlled study. We performed a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, controlled trial to assess the efficacy of hyperbaric treatment in children with autism. 

 

Methods 

62 children with autism recruited from 6 centers, ages 2-7 years (mean 4.92±1.21), were randomly assigned to 40 hourly treatments of either hyperbaric treatment at 1.3 atmosphere (atm) and 24% oxygen (“treatment group”, n=33) or slightly pressurized room air at 1.03 atm and 21% oxygen (“control group”, n=29). Outcome measures included Clinical Global Impression (CGI) scale, Aberrant Behavior Checklist (ABC), and Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC). 

 

Conclusions 

Given the positive findings of this study, and the shortage of proven treatments for individuals with autism, parents who pursue hyperbaric treatment for their child with autism can be assured that it is a safe treatment modality at the pressure used in this study (1.3 atm), and that it may improve certain autistic behaviors. Further studies are needed by other investigators to confirm these findings; we are aware of several other planned or ongoing studies of hyperbaric treatment in children with autism. However, in light of the positive results of this study and those of several previous studies [7, 17, 21, 22, 35], the use of hyperbaric treatment appears to be a promising treatment for children with autism.

Drug Abuse Deaths and the Associated Press

Drug Abuse Deaths and the Associated Press | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

According to a January 2016 CDC report, over 47,000 Americans fatally overdosed on prescription opioid pain killers in 2014.

 

This is a stunning fact. But almost as stunning is the apparent lack of concern expressed by the world's media when reporting it. The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, for example, thought it worth a mere 214 words. NBC News was obviously more excited and pushed their coverage to a hefty 223 words. And even those who pushed their word totals up slightly higher ignored the real stories hidden behind the headlines. 

 

With that in mind, let's take a look at the CDC report in detail--which virtually no news service did--and then explore the backstory that was pretty much ignored outside of a couple of surprising journalistic players. And finally, I want to take a look a stunning twist to the story that absolutely no one looked at but that to my mind is really the most important takeaway from the whole debacle.

Vaccine Researcher Dr. Andrew Wakefield Set For Full Exoneration, Sues British Medical Journal

Vaccine Researcher Dr. Andrew Wakefield Set For Full Exoneration, Sues British Medical Journal | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

British Court Throws Out Conviction of Autism/Vaccine MD: Andrew Wakefield’s Co-Author John Walker-Smith Completely Exonerated 


In a stunning reversal, world renowned pediatric gastroenterologist Prof. John Walker-Smith won his appeal against the United Kingdom’s General Medical Council regulatory board that had ruled against both him and Andrew Wakefield for their roles in the 1998 Lancet MMR paper, which raised questions about a link to autism. The complete victory means that Walker-Smith has been returned to the status of a fully licensed physician in the UK, although he had already retired in 2001 — six years before the GMC trial even began. 


Justice John Mitting ruled on the appeal by Walker-Smith, saying that the GMC “panel’s determination cannot stand. I therefore quash it.” He said that its conclusions were based on “inadequate and superficial reasoning and, in a number of instances, a wrong conclusion.”


Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

Slowly grind the mills of justice ... 

It is now more than ten years ago that the vaccine establishment came after Andrew Wakefield and John Walker Smith and raked them over hot coals for saying that perhaps the MMR vaccine had something to do with the intestinal trouble many kids seemed to be having. 

The court decision to exonerate John Walker Smith should, in my view, invalidate the whole case before the UK's medical board.

So vindication it is, although a legal action that is mentioned in the article was not successful. Andrew Wakefield could not start a case in the US as intended.

RIO DE JANEIRO:  Health officials in Brazil have dismissed claims that a larvicide used in drinking water could be responsible for a rise in cases of microcephaly, instead of Zika virus, after one state suspended use of the chemical.

Meet the doctor who says medications are killing you - Peter Gotzsche, founder of the Cochrane Collaboration

Meet the doctor who says medications are killing you - Peter Gotzsche, founder of the Cochrane Collaboration | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Many of our most commonly used drugs, from painkillers to antidepressants, are dangerous and are killing us off in large numbers, says a  leading researcher visiting Australia next week. 


Peter Gotzsche, a co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration, the world's foremost body in assessing medical evidence, arrives in Australia on Monday for a whirlwind speaking tour warning Australians about their use of prescription medications. 


He estimates that 100,000 people in the United States alone die each year from the side-effects of correctly used drugs. Similar figures are not available in Australia, although the Australian Bureau of Statistics estimates that 3000 people died after complications with medical and surgical care in 2012. 


"It's remarkable that nobody raises an eyebrow when we kill so many of our own citizens with drugs," Professor Gotzsche, who heads the Nordic Cochrane Centre, told Fairfax Media ahead of his visit.


Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

We might become complacent at times and think that our doctors must know what they are doing, that what they are prescribing is gong to help us.

Scary but so true - as a registered nurse I have seen the negative effects of prescription drugs on health over and over and over again...of course they have their place sometimes, and in emergencies they can save lives. For most long term prescription drugs there is a price somewhere else in the body. I lost my father last year, and I know in my heart of hearts that his total compliance with medication prescribed for him by his well intentioned doctor, finally led to the complications which ended his life.

 

A doctor once told me a true story about a woman he knew in a nursing home that was dying - the whole family were called to be with her, and medication was ceased while they waited for her to die. For a few days she got worse each day and then better, and better, and better. So much so that she was able to leave the nursing home and go to live with family!!

Infectious Myth – Joan Shenton and Babette Babich on Scientific Censorship  | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

When the documentary, ‘Positive Hell’, was accepted by the London Independent Film Festival, it seemed like a crack in the wall of censorship imposed on critics of the HIV=AIDS dogma. It tells the story of 5 Spaniards who have been HIV-positive since the 1980s and have not taken AIDS drugs, or only for a short time, yet have retained excellent health.

 

But after four complaints from unnamed AIDS charities (that probably receive money from pharmaceutical companies) the film was unanimously withdrawn by the same committee that earlier approved it.

 

Film maker Joan Shenton talks to David about her experiences, joined by philosophy professor Babette Babich who has written on the censorship of science from within.

Ibuprofen Kills Thousands Each Year, So What Is The Alternative? | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Pain and unhealthy levels of inflammation are fast becoming default bodily states in the industrialized world.

 

While in most cases we can adjust the underlying pro-inflammatory conditions by altering our diet, and reducing stress and environmental chemical exposures, these approaches take time, discipline and energy, and sometimes we just want the pain to stop now. In those often compulsive moments we find ourselves popping an over-the-counter pill to kill the pain. 

 

The problem with this approach is that, if we do it often enough, we may kill ourselves along with the pain...

Controversial HIV/AIDS film screens at London Independent Film Festival

Controversial HIV/AIDS film screens at London Independent Film Festival | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

The 2016 London International Film Festival is to screen a controversial 30 minute documentary that questions the world's orthodox views of HIV and AIDS. 

 

Positive Hell, written and narrated by journalist Joan Shenton and directed by Andi Reiss of Yellow Entertainment, will be shown on Sunday April 17 at the Shortwave Cinema, Bermondsey, in a double bill with Sillhouette Secrets, also directed by Andi Reiss.

 

Positive Hell - made to complement last year's re-publication of Shenton's equally controversial 1998 HIV and AIDS book, Positively False - tells the personal stories of five people who lived their lives in fear of their HIV-positive diagnoses but who did not receive the standard HIV treatments. All went on to live entirely normally for decades, not least having children - the outcome of unprotected sex which has always been the ultimate taboo - who themselves are now healthy adults and HIV negative.

 

Joan Shenton said: "Positively False and Positive Hell together present a damning indictment of the orthodox approach to HIV and AIDS, in which a relatively quick, questionable diagnosis can lead to a lifetime of mental and physical anguish. Had people not taken that test, so many would have gone on to live utterly normal lives.

"We have been saying this for 18 years and science has still not produced any vaccine or other cure, nor proven that a retrovirus called HIV is the cause of the various old, known diseases lumped together under the name AIDS."

Review of the Film “Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe”

Review of the Film “Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe” | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Back in 2013, William Thompson, PhD, a senior scientist at the CDC was so wracked with guilt about his participation in a CDC study on the timing of the MMR vaccine and autism that he finally picked up the phone and called Brian Hooker, PhD, biologist and autism dad, to tell him where to look for the evidence of CDC deception. Vaxxed is the story of what followed, revealing evidence of collusion, corruption, and fraud at the very agency charged with protecting the public health. 

 

The film was accepted by and then unceremoniously ejected from the Tribeca Film Festival after a firestorm of media attention which almost unanimously condemned the film even though not a single reporter had seen it. The media attention may have turned out to be a blessing in disguise, however, as it has many people who haven’t investigated the topic before asking, Why? What is so special about this film that so many people wanted to kill it? 

 

And so it was that the film opened last night to a packed house at Angelika Film Center in New York City. As a long-time New Yorker, there was a particular thrill to seeing this film at this theater. Angelika is my very favorite theater in New York. I have many vivid memories of terrific and thought-provoking films seen there, while surprisingly I have no clear recollection of any films screened at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

Shaken Baby Syndrome is a medical diagnosis used to accuse parents of killing a baby by violently shaking it, because we know that "vaccines are safe" and cannot cause injury.

 

It turns out the diagnosis is non-scientific, the injuries are not consistent with shaking. Neuropathologist Dr. Squier, who is blowing the whistle on this, is being attacked by the medical establishment. Scientific discussion? No way.

How Big Pharma greed is killing tens of thousands around the world: Patients are over-medicated...

How Big Pharma greed is killing tens of thousands around the world: Patients are over-medicated... | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

A group of eminent UK experts - including the Queen's former doctor - have warned that many medicines - such as statins - are less effective than thought. 


Sir Richard said: ‘The time has come for a full and open public enquiry into the way evidence of the efficacy of drugs is obtained and revealed. 


'There is real danger that some current drug treatments are much less effective than had previously been thought.’

He said the campaign highlights the ‘often weak and sometimes murky basis on which the efficacy and use of drugs, particularly in the elderly, are judged’. 


Writing for MailOnline, Dr Malhotra says commercial conflicts of interest are contributing to an ‘epidemic of misinformed doctors and misinformed patients in the UK and beyond’.

Study Proves Electromagnetic Fields from Cell Towers Can Amplify Pain

Study Proves Electromagnetic Fields from Cell Towers Can Amplify Pain | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

First of its kind study proves that cell tower signals can stimulate damaged human nerve tissue. 

 

If you’ve ever wondered if the thousands of cell phone towers and electromagnetic signals permeating society nowadays could be potentially harmful to your body, mind and to the natural environment, you’re not alone.

 

A small minority of people are so sensitive to electromagnetic radiation they’ve even been forced to move into cave-like domiciles designed to insulate them from such signals. We are, after all, energetic beings, as are all lifeforms, and although something may lie outside of our ordinary perception does not imply that it is harmless. 

 

It turns out that electromagnetic signals from cell phone towers do in fact directly affect the human body in physical ways, and surprisingly, for amputees, common cellular signals can amplify sensations of pain in the body, when in the presence of such emissions. 

 

The University of Texas at Dallas gives concrete evidence that these types of now ubiquitous signals can actually amplify pain in amputees by immediately stimulating nerve tissue that had suffered traumatic damage. 

 

There are more studies out there. Here is a list of more than thirty studies compiled two years ago...

It's just a study ... with the limitations that are inherent in such things.

Amputees are especially sensitive, and they are one way to prove that there IS an effect.

Of course what that says is "we should look into that some more - how does what affects amputees affect other people?

It basically is a step in forcing proper studies to be done, which so far are sadly missing.
