Tension Increases - Federal Judge Orders CDC to Produce Secret Documents... The CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous Vaccines Are - And Has Covered It Up...

"In late 2004 Biochemist Scientist Brian Hooker PhD had had enough. He'd been looking, carefully, through the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s so-called "Evidence" that Thimerosal was "Safe and Effective" as a preservative in vaccines. Having read all of the then available CDC studies making that claim, he, as a PhD Scientist, couldn't help but shake his head "NO." To him, none of the purported proof was anywhere near being scientifically adequate. Far from it.

 

So, like any math teacher would do to a student he began to communicate to the CDC his questions. In essence he was saying "Show me your work. Show me how you came up with these answers" - a reasonable question series among scientists, teachers and students, and frankly, the population of Planet Earth.

What was CDC's response? STONEWALL - a six year knock-down, drag-out brawl to get that information. Brian Hooker would not let up. Neither would the CDC...

Australia: Nutritional medicine could save hundreds of millions of lives, but vested interests actively pursue the opposite

Australia: Nutritional medicine could save hundreds of millions of lives, but vested interests actively pursue the opposite | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Health practice in Australia is still focused on treatment of disease as opposed to its prevention and the optimization of health.

 

Although the scientific literature has recently shown an increasing awareness of the importance of lifestyle factors in preventing disease, mainstream medical professionals continue to be trained to react to disease and pursue drug treatment.

 

This "drug and disease" paradigm is costly, not only in monetary terms but also the human toll of pain and suffering and its impact on productivity and quality of life, and widespread illness and death caused by medical treatment.

Vaccine to genetically engineer people against smoking: Planned for children

Vaccine to genetically engineer people against smoking: Planned for children | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

An upcoming vaccine contains a genetically engineered virus designed to infect the liver, forcing it to make antibodies against nicotine. In other words, its purpose is to genetically engineer humans to control behavior.

 

They’re already talking about giving it to children.

 

Sepp's comment: This sounds like an extremely bad idea. If the vaccine works, are those antibodies also going to affect biochemical pathways involving  nicotine's close cousins, nicotinic acid and nicotinamide, also known as vitamin B3 ???

USDOJ: GlaxoSmithKline to Plead Guilty and Pay $3 Billion to Resolve Fraud Allegations and Failure to Report Safety Data | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Global health care giant GlaxoSmithKline LLC (GSK) agreed to plead guilty and to pay $3 billion to resolve its criminal and civil liability arising from the company’s unlawful promotion of certain prescription drugs, its failure to report certain safety data, and its civil liability for alleged false price reporting practices, the Justice Department announced today.

 

The resolution is the largest health care fraud settlement in U.S. history and the largest payment ever by a drug company.

ANH-Intl e-Alert: Risk is better rewarded than precaution

ANH-Intl e-Alert: Risk is better rewarded than precaution | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Taking vitamins and herbs, according to over-zealous, risk-focused European regulators, is apparently a risky business. Isn’t it odd that those of us who take them have rarely experienced any ill effects, and instead focus on the benefits we have experienced?

 

But just how risky are they?

 

On the basis of available data, it looks very much like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, herbal products and other so-called food supplements are the safest group of products we put in our mouths. They are certainly many times safer than the processed foods that now form the bulk of most Western diets and are on average, thousands of times safer than even correctly prescribed drugs.

Suicide rates fall when states legalize medical marijuana, says new study

Suicide rates fall when states legalize medical marijuana, says new study | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
A University of Colorado economics professor has co-authored a study, just released by the Institute for the Study of Labor in Bonn, Germany that concludes that suicide rates among young males declines markedly after states legalize medical marijuana. Professors at Montana State University and San Diego State University were also involved in the study. The study is titled “High on Life: Medical Marijuana Laws and Suicide.”

 

CU Denver professor Daniel Rees and his coauthors don’t say conclusively why suicide rates fall. They offer evidence that marijuana acts as an antidepressant when used moderately, but also note that using marijuana in larger amounts can actually lead to depression.

 

They also note that the sale of alcohol to young males declines in states that legalize medical marijuana and note that alcohol is a known depressant the use of which can lead to suicidal thoughts.

 

My comment: Anyone using marijuana should take care of their intake of B vitamins. They get burned up more rapidly in smokers.

Statins Prevent Vitamin D Formation, Causing Muscle Pain & Worse | Gaia Health | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Inadequate Vitamin D causes muscle pain. The purpose of statin drugs is to lower cholesterol. Is there a connection between the muscle pain that results from statins and inadequate Vitamin D?

 

There can, in fact, be little doubt. The connection is obvious if you know one fact: Cholesterol is required to make Vitamin D. Therefore, anyone taking statins can be expected to have a deficiency in it.

Alkaline pH Prevents Cancer

Alkaline pH Prevents Cancer | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

"Thus, in accordance with the fundamental rule of nutrition, a healthy body also requires that the bacteria in the intestines be at least 80 percent healthy aerobic bacteria and not more than 20 percent potentially unhealthy anaerobic bacteria. As a matter of fact, many health practitioners are of the opinion that a predominance of more than 20 percent anaerobic bacteria in the intestines constitutes the common denominator underlying every form of disease."

 

"The reason for this is that anaerobic bacteria thrive in an acidic environment and produce acidic wastes which compound the acidic condition, thereby resulting in the acidic toxicity that gives rise to a wide variety of disease symptoms."

"Gene sequencing has confirmed what educated parents of unvaccinated children have long maintained – the human body is incredibly more complex than pediatricians, public health officials and drug company vaccine salesmen insist.

 

A new study reported by the NY Times (from the Human Microbiome Project) had found as many as a thousand strains of 100 trillion beneficial bacteria live in or on the human body. This is only a first look at a unbelievably complex ecosystem of bacteria. Scientists have zero understanding of how it all works together.

 

Critically, they found ‘genetic signatures of disease-causing bacteria lurking in everyone’s microbiome. But instead of making people ill, or even infectious, these disease-causing microbes simply live peacefully among their neighbors.’"

Brazilian farmers win $2 billion judgment against Monsanto | QW Magazine

Brazilian farmers win $2 billion judgment against Monsanto | QW Magazine | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Five million Brazilian farmers have taken on US based biotech company Monsanto through a lawsuit demanding return of about 6.2 billion euros taken as royalties from them. The farmers are claiming that the powerful company has unfairly extracted these royalties from poor farmers because they were using seeds produced from crops grown from Monsanto’s genetically engineered seeds, reports Merco Press.

 

In April this year, a judge in the southern Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, ruled in favor of the farmers and ordered Monsanto to return royalties paid since 2004 or a minimum of $2 billion. The ruling said that the business practices of seed multinational Monsanto violate the rules of the Brazilian Cultivars Act...

Genetically modified soy linked to illnesses in farm pigs

Genetically modified soy linked to illnesses in farm pigs | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

A Danish farmer has gained huge public recognition for publishing his simple method for ridding his pigs of illness - removing genetically modified ingredients from their diet.

 

Published in the farming magazine Effektivt Landbrug on 13 April 2012, the farmer Ib Borup Perderson describes how his pigs suffered from symptoms including chronic diarrhoea, birth defects, reproductive problems, reduced appetite, bloating, stomach ulcers, weaker and smaller piglets, and reduced litter sizes.

 

This was not just a problem for the animals themselves but also the profitability of the farm, with fewer healthy animals, mounting costs of medicines and added labour costs.

 

After researching the health hazards of GM foods and associated herbicides, Pederson decided to stop feeding his 450 sows with GM soybean, replacing them with fishmeal and non-GM soybean instead. He began to notice health benefits after two days of a GM-free diet...

Codex decides to adopt ractopamine standard against consumer objections - Health Supreme

Codex decides to adopt ractopamine standard against consumer objections - Health Supreme | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Ractopamine is a drug given to pigs and cows in the last months of their lives to "make the meat more lean". Taiwan has been blocking imports of meat from the US over concerns that the drug's residues that stay in the meat are less than healthy.

 

At a recent Codex Alimentarius Commission meeting, the meat producing and exporting countries, and those heavily lobbied and pressured by US diplomats prevailed in a close vote to make the agency adopt a standard for residues of ractopamine in meat. That means that the countries that resist meat from doped animals will have a harder time to justify why they don't want to subject their citizens to yet another experiment for the sake of the economy of large-scale animal-to-meat operations.

Mercury in Vaccine PUSHERS Not Doing Well at UNEP (4) - Despite Desperate Moves...

On June 1st, 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics, Big Pharma's tip-of-the-spear Vaccine Front, began to almost beg its allies around the world to come to the assistance of the Vaccine Industry at the UNEP Mercury (4) meeting.

 

Why? Because UNEP (4) has on its agenda the permanent banning of Thimerosal (deadly mercury) in vaccines - for all time. The AAP issued a "Breaking News" report, whining, and whimpering even in the article's title "Ban on all mercury-based products would risk global immunization efforts, says AAP, WHO" They called upon all of their health agencies world wide to disseminate their message.

 

It is not readily known why the Vaccine Industry, and its connected US government agencies, want to keep DEADLY mercury in vaccines - but there are some strong suspicions along racial and ethnic lines. When mercury was banned in US/Canadian childhood vaccines back in 2003/2004 all those heavily mercury laden pustule packages were dumped on the African continent, Arabia, and in Latin Central and South America.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Study Proves Defective Cellular Energy Function | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

For years, sufferers of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), have been subjected to the abuse of modern medicine, which has claimed that it’s a mental disorder, that it’s all in their heads.

 

Now, a clinical study clearly documents that these people, mostly women, suffer from a dysfunction of mitochondria, the cells’ energy production centers.

 

Sufferers of CFS/ME can now state unequivocally to their doctors that their symptoms are not in their heads, that they suffer from a mitochondrial dysfunction. They can refer their doctors to this study & ask them to do the proper testing.

Vaccination – The Religious Science :

Vaccination – The Religious Science : | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
Vaccination comes from the word “vacca.” We could call it cow-injection, to be true to history, because, and we’re never really told this, but the vaccine that made it all famous – smallpox – came from the sores on the underbellies and legs of cows and horses. Pus and blood were scraped off, put on the ends of small, sharp pronged forks or lancets and jabbed into people’s arms. Yes, “vacca” means “cow.” Does that surprise you? Do we generally think that animal blood and pus is good thing to put into our bodies? Probably not, but we’ll get into that in a minute.

 

Vaccines are regarded as a nearly magical process, like a totem or a crucible, a station of the cross in the Western world; it has replaced baptism as a holy right. Those who are opposed are mistrusted and feared, almost as witches; certainly as troubled heretics. But no one ever asks the question:

Brit Scientists Show HPV Vaccine Is Not Justified Anywhere | Gaia Health | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Just as it is in the west, the HPV vaccine is being heavily marketed in India.

 

The heavy pressure to roll it out has resulted in tragic deaths of girls given the vaccines.

 

Now, a report by the British Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine has come out with a study demonstrating that the HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, cannot be justified in India.

 

More scandalous, though, is that their results clearly reflect that these vaccines are even less justified in the western world, including the USA, UK, Europe, Canada, and Australia.

 

That, though, is never mentioned in their report.

“Prescription drug therapy stands as one of the most significant perils to health resulting from human activity.” What's the FDA doing to stem the tide of this preventable epidemic?

 

Prescription drugs are the 4th leading cause of death in the US. In any given month, 48% of US consumers ingested a prescription drug, and 11% ingested five or more prescription drugs. Americans suffer from an estimated 45-50 million adverse effects, from prescription drugs--of which 2.5 million to 4 million are serious, disabling or fatal.

So what is the FDA--the agency that licenses these drugs--doing to stem the rising tide of this preventable deadly epidemic? NOTHING.

 

Question at the end of the article: "How long are Americans willing to subsidize a system that rewards the prescription drug industry for developing hazardous drugs that pose life-threatening risks rather than life-saving benefits?

Why genetically engineered food is dangerous: New report by genetic engineers

Why genetically engineered food is dangerous: New report by genetic engineers | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Dr Antoniou said: “GM crops are promoted on the basis of ambitious claims – that they are safe to eat, environmentally beneficial, increase yields, reduce reliance on pesticides, and can help solve world hunger.


“I felt what was needed was a collation of the evidence that addresses the technology from a scientific point of view.


“Research studies show that genetically modified crops have harmful effects on laboratory animals in feeding trials and on the environment during cultivation. They have increased the use of pesticides and have failed to increase yields. Our report concludes that there are safer and more effective alternatives to meeting the world’s food needs.”

Intestinal bacteria produce neurotransmitter, could play role in inflammation

Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital have identified commensal bacteria in the human intestine that produce a neurotransmitter that may play a role in preventing or treating inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease.

 

"We identified, to our knowledge, the first bifidobacterial strain, Bifidobacterium dentium, that is capable of secreting large amounts of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). 

 

GABA is one of the chief inhibitory neurotransmitters in the human central nervous system. It plays a role in regulating pain and some pain relieving drugs currently on the market act by targeting GABA receptors on neural cells.
