EU and US administrations use pharmaceutical standards on foods: Abridging fundamental freedom of speech

EU and US administrations use pharmaceutical standards on foods: Abridging fundamental freedom of speech | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

In the US, POM Wonderful, in its case against the Federal Trade Commission, seeks to convince the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia that the FTC “failed to prove that Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) are in fact necessary to substantiate the health claims it [FTC] believed were implied in POM’s advertisements.”

 

According to POM, the standard that must be applied is that of “competent and reliable scientific evidence,” a standard that the FTC itself had defined as “tests, analyses, research, studies, or other evidence based on the expertise of professionals in the relevant area, that [have] been conducted and evaluated in an objective manner … using procedures generally accepted in the profession to yield accurate and reliable results.” 

 In Europe, the EU Convention subjects the Freedom of Expression to the laws prescribed by “Public Authority” on the basis of “what is necessary” in practically all fields of life. The European Nutrition and Health Claims Regulation (NHCR) constitutes a serious prohibition of the freedom of speech “prescribed by law.” 
Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

The standard of randomized, controlled clinical trials is a pharmaceutical standard, invented to test the efficacy of pharmaceutical medicines. it was never intended to test the health properties of foods.  

 

How can a pharmaceutical standard be applied to determine what can and cannot be said about healthy foods?

Too Little Salt in the Diet, NOT Too Much, Associated with Higher Risk of Heart Disease

Too Little Salt in the Diet, NOT Too Much, Associated with Higher Risk of Heart Disease | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Salt is the second major constituent in our body, next to water. We need adequate amounts of good salt in our diet to run hundreds of different biochemical pathways. We have been conditioned to think that we should eat less salt.

 

My patients always give me quizzical looks when I tell them they need to increase their salt intake.  You see, I have been checking salt levels on nearly every patient that has ever seen me.  My experience has clearly shown that most patients do not consume enough salt.  I know you are probably thinking that you read that last sentence incorrectly...

HIV+ cured by CANNABIS TEA

HIV+ cured by CANNABIS TEA | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Hi All! And greetings from South African Farm once again! This morning -22 September 2013 - I collected Henry Ngomezulu from Umkomaas Train Station. He has come donw from Johannesburg to join in the ONE LOVE CANNABIS PEACE MARCH happening in West Street, Durban, South Africa on Heritage Day. 

 

In 2002 he was diagnosed by the Zola Polyhealth Clinic in Soweto, Gauteng as being HIV +. He also had TB. 

 

He was devastated beyond belief. In thos days you had to have a blood count of under 300 to qualify for ARV's. 


So he remembered the stories of his African heritage from his grandmother, and obtained some marijuana - which of course is illegal in South Africa. 

Over the next few years he started brewing an infusion in hot water of cannabis which he would then breathe. Later he started drinking marijuana infused tea. In 2008 he went back to be tested and he was shown to be HIV-. He had himself tested three more times - and still he was negative. 


He ran his first marathon in 2010.

Have All Your Staff Vaccinated and We Will Give You £1.4 Million Extra Funding, Says UK Government

Have All Your Staff Vaccinated and We Will Give You £1.4 Million Extra Funding, Says UK Government | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

The UK government is offering £1.4 million in extra funding to financially dependent hospitals, if they vaccinate all their staff with this year’s flu vaccine.

 

“Figures have revealed that less than half of all frontline NHS staff are vaccinated against flu, and at some hospitals, this can fall as low as one in five.

 

But in order to give hospitals an incentive for extra cash, the funds will only be released to them if they meet a robust target of vaccinating 75 percent of staff against flu.

 

And while the figures will not affect the hospitals’ £1.4m funding this year, if they do not meet the figures, it will affect the amount they are given next year.”

Why would a government bribe hospitals into forcing their staff to take a vaccine? One might ask who's in charge there...

Amy Rayward's comment, September 23, 2013 9:51 PM
I may have forgotten a question mark. Sorry. I was trying to show that by sacking un-vaccinated or non vaccinating staff, it would look like the staff is fully vaccinated. I feel sad that they will jeopardise the health of their staff by enforcing vaccination to garner money.

Mammograms 'see' three cancers that aren’t there for every one that is, UK government admits

Mammograms 'see' three cancers that aren’t there for every one that is, UK government admits | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Women are finally being told the truth about the limitations and dangers of routine mammography screening for breast cancer. A new NHS (National Health Service) leaflet warns that the technology is three times more likely to pick up a benign abnormality—which may result in chemotherapy or a mastectomy—than an actual life-threatening tumour.

The Power of Addiction and The Addiction of Power: Gabor Maté at TEDxRio+20 (Video 20min)

Canadian physician Gabor Maté is a specialist in terminal illnesses, chemical dependents, and HIV positive patients. Dr. Maté is a renowned author of books and columnist known for his knowledge about attention deficit disorder, stress, chronic illness and parental relations.

 

His theme at TEDxRio+20 was addiction -- from drugs to power.

 

From the lack of love to the desire to escape oneself, from susceptibility of the being to interior power -- nothing escapes.

GMO Dangers - FDA scientists warned but were ignored...

GMO Dangers - FDA scientists warned but were ignored... | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Genetically modified foods… Are they safe? The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) doesn’t think so.

 

The Academy reported that “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. The AAEM asked physicians to advise patients to avoid GM foods.

 

Before the FDA decided to allow GMOs into food without labeling, FDA scientists had repeatedly warned that GM foods can create unpredictable, hard-to-detect side effects, including allergies, toxins, new diseases, and nutritional problems. 


They urged long-term safety studies, but were ignored.

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

This seems like a repeat of the Aspartame story. FDA scientists warned about Aspartame safety as well, and were ignored when Rumsfeld brought his political weight to bear. 

It seems that science is only given attention when it's convenient and is ignored when there are business interests to protect.

Is the Pharmaceutical Industry Like the Mafia? Former BMJ Editor Speaks Out

Is the Pharmaceutical Industry Like the Mafia? Former BMJ Editor Speaks Out | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

By Richard Smith – editor of the BMJ until 2004

 

The piece that follows is my foreword to a new and fascinating book by Peter  Gøtzsche, the head of the Nordic Cochrane Centre, entitled “Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare.”

 

The characteristics of organised crime, racketeering, is defined in US law as the act of engaging repeatedly in certain types of offence, including extortion, fraud, federal drug offences, bribery, embezzlement, obstruction of justice, obstruction of law enforcement, tampering with witnesses, and political corruption. Peter produces evidence, most of it detailed, to support his case that pharmaceutical companies are guilty of most of these offences.

 

And he is not the first to compare the industry with the Mafia or mob. He quotes a former vice-president of Pfizer, who has said: “It is scary how many similarities there are between this industry and the mob. The mob makes obscene amounts of money, as does this industry. The side effects of organized crime are killings and deaths, and the side effects are the same in this industry. The mob bribes politicians and others, and so does the drug industry …”

 

Systematic corruption


Most of Peter’s book is devoted to building up the case that the drug industry has systematically corrupted science to play up the benefits and play down the harms of their drugs...

Major Pharmaceutical Company Wants To Block Access To Clinical Trial Data Of Their Drugs In Fear Of Profit Loss

Major Pharmaceutical Company Wants To Block Access To Clinical Trial Data Of Their Drugs In Fear Of Profit Loss | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

AbbVie (recently split off from Abbott Laboratories), maker of Humira, and InterMune, maker of Esbriet, have filed a lawsuit against the European Medicines Agency (the European equivalent of the FDA) to block access to clinical trial data on the benefits and harms of their drugs, claiming that these vital facts are “trade secrets” whose release would harm their profits. Medical researches have been denied to clinical trial information.

 

Of course, when a drug causes cancer, release of clinical data information could potentially harm the profits of the company that makes it. Humira, a drug that is quickly becoming one of the best-selling drugs in the world, mainly because of the marketing techniques used by AbbVie, causes cancer.

 

The FDA warning label on Humira warns of increased risk of “Lymphoma and other malignancies” including “a rare type of cancer called hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma” that “often results in death,” along with “increased risk of serious infections leading to hospitalization or death, including tuberculosis (TB), bacterial sepsis, invasive fungal infections (such as histoplasmosis) and infections due to other opportunistic pathogens.”

Robin Good's curator insight, September 15, 2013 12:44 PM



Though you may have not heard about "bibliotherapy" before,"lovers of literature have been using novels as salves – either consciously or subconsciously – for centuries."


Bibliotherapists, are expert book curators, who can, depending on your ailment or pain, suggest a specific set of books to read. And in 2008 an official Bibliotherapy Service was born.

 

"When the School of Life opened its doors in 2008, we began to see clients – in person, by skype, in London, in Bognor Regis, Barcelona, Bangkok – for individual 40-minute sessions, after which we sent them a tailor-made eight-book prescription.


We became so busy we took on a third bibliotherapist, ex bookshop-manager, Simona Lyons.


Five years on, having tried and tested our cures, we have written an alternative medical reference book, The Novel Cure: An A-Z of Literary Remedies*


Whether you are "...moving house, looking for Mr/Mrs Right, or having a midlife crisis...  ...losing a loved one or becoming a single parent... ...Whether you’ve got the hiccups or a hangover, a fear of commitment or a sense of humour failure..." in The Novel Cure there is a selected novel or book that can help you. 


The Novel Cure is not a medical reference book but a curated selection of what to read to heal any pain: physical or psychological without ever suggesting any traditional remedy or medicine. 


The suggested readings include anything from Apuleius to the contemporary Ali Smith embracing over two thousand years of world literature. 


Thanks to Ella Berthoud and Susan Elderkin, for having shared their wonderful story and for providing such an inspiring and useful resource for many. 



Quite an inspiring story. 8/10

HARVARD EXPERTS: The Myth of Safe & Effective Drugs: Why The FDA Cannot Be Trusted

HARVARD EXPERTS: The Myth of Safe & Effective Drugs: Why The FDA Cannot Be Trusted | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

The article first alerting us to this new research comes from the Harvard Ethics blog of one of the three authors of the paper and is titled “Risky Drugs: Why The FDA Cannot Be Trusted” by Donald W. Light. He begins this article with some important points about this 35 page paper:

 

“A forthcoming article … presents evidence that about 90 percent of all new drugs approved by the FDA over the past 30 years are little or no more effective for patients than existing drugs.


“The bar for “safe” is equally low, and over the past 30 years, approved drugs have caused an epidemic of harmful side effects, even when properly prescribed. 


Every week, about 53,000 excess hospitalizations and about 2400 excess deaths occur in the United States among people taking properly prescribed drugs to be healthier. 


One in every five drugs approved ends up causing serious harm,1 while one in ten provide substantial benefit compared to existing, established drugs.

 

This is the opposite of what people want or expect from the FDA.”

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

From the abstract:

“Over the past 35 years, patients have suffered from a largely hidden epidemic of side effects from drugs that usually have few offsetting benefits.

 

The pharmaceutical industry has corrupted the practice of medicine through its influence over what drugs are developed, how they are tested, and how medical knowledge is created.

 

Since 1906, heavy commercial influence has compromised Congressional legislation to protect the public from unsafe drugs.

 

The authorization of user fees in 1992 has turned drug companies into the FDA’s prime clients, deepening the regulatory and cultural capture of the agency. Industry has demanded shorter average review times and, with less time to thoroughly review evidence, increased hospitalizations and deaths have resulted.

 

Meeting the needs of the drug companies has taken priority over meeting the needs of patients. Unless this corruption of regulatory intent is reversed, the situation will continue to deteriorate."

The Life Story of the Sun and Earth

The Life Story of the Sun and Earth | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

For an international online cooperative web project for education on the Edx platform (https://www.edx.org/). Do you want to help?

 

I am going to start putting together a lecture on chemistry, ethics, genetics, and a protein that is important for life on earth and game theoretic approaches to understanding how it can be imagined as a place of balance of power on earth as I did during a lecture at Princeton Theological Seminary.

 

The protein, found in the genomes of all plants and some bacteria, is called photosystem II and uses light to make food for all life on earth in what is called photosynthesis.

 

The idea is to explain life on earth as a system and that this protein is an important “river” of energy. It, with the exception of life that lives in deep sea vents, is the source of how solar energy enters into all kinds of life. Animals, bacteria, fungi, and plants all rely on this protein. So, the idea is to build a foundation lecture to explain about the science of this protein.

 

Then, I will explain how ethics links to this protein. I will talk about sharing and cooperation to facilitate a balance of energy on earth between those life forms who have power and those who do not. We will encourage the evolution a scientific foundation and approach for good ethics in humanity.

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

The importance of being informed regarding chronic, prolonged EMF/EMR (electromagnetic radiation/electromagnetic fields) exposures, particularly nighttime exposures, can not be over-emphasized.

 

Sleeping with an electric clock on a nightstand or the headboard of one's bed, or sleeping close to the powerwall (inside wall opposite electric or gas meter),  can significantly lower immune function, which may predispose persons to every health problem from poor sleep to cancer.

Sugar is 'addictive and the most dangerous drug of the times'

Sugar is 'addictive and the most dangerous drug of the times' | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Soft drinks should carry tobacco-style warnings that sugar is highly addictive and dangerous, a senior Dutch health official has warned.

 

Paul van der Velpen, the head of Amsterdam's health service, the Dutch capital city where the sale of cannabis is legalised, wants to see sugar tightly regulated.

 

"Just like alcohol and tobacco, sugar is actually a drug. There is an important role for government. The use of sugar should be discouraged. And users should be made aware of the dangers," he wrote on an official public health website.

 

"This may seem exaggerated and far-fetched, but sugar is the most dangerous drug of the times and can still be easily acquired everywhere."

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

Sugar is a drug. Just like coffee, alcohol, nicotine. All of them 'legal', by the way... and all of them more damaging to health than other drugs that are 'illegal'.

 

Drugs are a moral issue and their consumption should be left to individual choice. Prohibition of one or the other (making it illegal) does not help, nor do those warning Labels. 

 

Let governments stay out of our personal choices.

The Ugly Side of Statins: An Honest Look at the Research of Cholesterol-lowering Drugs | Health Impact News

The Ugly Side of Statins: An Honest Look at the Research of Cholesterol-lowering Drugs | Health Impact News | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Lipitor, the blockbuster cholesterol-lowering statin drug produced by Pfizer, was the world’s most successful drug during the time its patent was active. Its total sales exceeded $140 billion, more than twice its nearest competitor.

 

When its patent expired at the end of 2011, the FDA issued its first warning statements on cholesterol-lowering drugs at the beginning of 2012, which included memory loss, diabetes, and liver damage. But how many people had already suffered these effects, and many others, before the FDA issued any warnings?

 

Still, the class of cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins continues to earn major revenues for drug companies today, especially among generic brands now.

 

With almost 1 out of every 4 Americans over the age of 55 currently taking a statin drug, we may just be seeing the tip of the iceberg on how damaging these drugs have been, as they are now being linked to Alzheimer’s and other neurological diseases as well.

Health Claims and the false flag "problem" at the bottom of the European claims regulation

Health Claims and the false flag "problem" at the bottom of the European claims regulation | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

In Article 4 of the Nutrition and Health Claims Regulation (NHCR), the European legislature entrusted to the European Commission the task of establishing “Nutrient Profiles.”

 

These profiles should separate politically desirable from politically “undesirable” foods, so that no health claims should ever appear on foods profiled as “undesirable” by the consumer advocates that seek to prevent that consumers shall get “desirable” nutrients via ice cream, candies, salty and fatty snacks, sweet biscuits.

 

This is the ascetic ideology that has grown out of the unproven allegation that “many consumers that are eating them [“undesirable” foods] in moderation would consume them in greater quantities” when manufacturers would be permitted to allude to the fact that “undesirable” foods contain “desirable” nutrients that do “desirable” things...

Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

Claims are things companies say on product labels. "Health claims" are things they say or rather write about the product (a food, a supplement, a herb) that explains what it's good for in terms of staying healthy.

 

The European Union has issued a regulation, applicable in all member countries, that all such statements must be centrally approved.

"Anthropogenic noise activities off West African Coast, includes seismic surveys and naval exercises (rockets, hazardous operations, etc). Ghana reports increase in dead whales washing ashore coinciding with extensive oil exploration activities in this area."
"Stranded whales are not soulless blobs of fat, they are individuals and they often have
 families and friends waiting desperately for them near by only to never see them again 
because lousy rescues refuse to help and kill them."

"On King Island, Tasmania in November 2012 a several day, multi-species stranding event occurred simultaneously with the testing of a new torpedo in the same basic area. The strandings began within approximately 24 hours of the weapons tests."

 

"The source level of this sonar is 240 decibels (equivalent to the intensity of a Saturn rocket). But, because low frequency underwater sound can travel hundreds of miles with little loss of power, it will actually create a 'kill zone' several hundred miles in diameter. NATO naval exercises using low frequency sonar conducted off Greece in 1996 killed whales that were more than 100 km away."

 
Sepp Hasslberger's insight:

What the hell are we doing to dolphins and whales who live in the sea? As Jeff says ... they are not soulless blobs of fat. 

If anyone is soulless here, it's us!
