Quackbusters, Skeptics and the Web of Trust - Health Supreme

Quackbusters, Skeptics and the Web of Trust - Health Supreme | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

The quackbusters, as the health oriented skeptics like to call themselves in the USA, are, according to Tim Bolen "a conspiracy."

 

"It is a propaganda enterprise, one part crackpot, two parts evil. It's sole purpose is to discredit, and suppress, in an "anything goes" attack mode, what is wrongfully named "Alternative Medicine." It has declared war on reality."

 

"The conspirators are acting in the interests of, and are being paid, directly and indirectly, by the "conventional" medical-industrial complex."

Boy shocked 31 times in school for disabled: Punishment for not removing his coat [Video]

Boy shocked 31 times in school for disabled: Punishment for not removing his coat [Video] | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

"Ten years ago, an 18-year-old disabled boy was tortured with electric shocks 31 times in a Massachusetts residential school for disturbed and autistic children. His crime? He had refused to take his coat off when ordered! Hard to believe? Then watch the video at the end of this article."

 

"The video is hard to watch. Andre McCollins is strapped face down and spread-eagled, screaming for them to stop and then screeching when he’s shocked. It’s horrific. Afterwards, they left him without care, in a catatonic state, unable to eat or even take in adequate fluids. The school is lucky he didn’t die, or they’d be getting sued for murder instead of torture."

 

"Perhaps even worse is to learn that the school, the Judge Rotenberg Center in Canton, Massachusetts, has managed to keep this from being seen in court before now, ten years later."

New study shows marijuana users are safer drivers than non-marijuana users

New study shows marijuana users are safer drivers than non-marijuana users | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

"... the only significant effect that marijuana has on operating a motor vehicle is slower driving."

 

"4AutoInsuranceQuote.org says, while referencing a study by the US National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), that driving slower “is arguably a positive thing” and that driving under the influence of marijuana “might even make you a safer driver.”

 

"A similar study by the NHTSA shows that drivers with THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) in their system have accident responsibility rates below that of drug free drivers."

 

“The hypocrisy of it all is that if you get caught driving under the influence of marijuana, you will be fined and perhaps thrown into jail. What's worse is that your insurance rates will definitely increase due to the traffic violation,” says Mr. Shaffer, “What law enforcement agencies and insurers do not understand is that driving while high is actually a safe activity."

Cancer Treatment: Scientists Find a Single Antibody that Shrinks Seven Types of Tumors

Cancer Treatment: Scientists Find a Single Antibody that Shrinks Seven Types of Tumors | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
A single treatment to cure all cancers? Scientists may be one step closer.

 

(via www.WantToKnow.info):

 

"Scientists may be one step closer."

 

"In a recent study, scientists reported that they successfully tested an antibody treatment that shrank human breast, ovary, colon, bladder, brain, liver and prostate tumors transplanted into mice."

 

"The antibody blocks a protein called CD47, which normally sits on the cell surface and issues a “don’t eat me” signal that prevents the body’s immune system from attacking it."

 

"About a decade ago, scientists at Stanford University School of Medicine, led by professor of pathology Irving Weissman, discovered that using an antibody to block CD47 cured some cases of leukemia and lymphoma in mice by allowing macrophages to seek and destroy the cancerous cells. In the new study, Weissman’s Stanford team showed that the CD47-blocking antibodies may also work against a number of other cancers."

 

"The researchers found that CD47 existed on nearly every cell, which suggests that the protein may be common to all cancers. Cancer cells expressed about three times more CD47 than healthy cells. “If the tumor was highly aggressive, the antibody also blocked metastasis. It’s becoming very clear that, in order for a cancer to survive in the body, it has to find some way to evade the cells of the innate immune system,” said Weissman in a statement."

Wellcome Trust joins 'academic spring' to open up science

Wellcome Trust joins 'academic spring' to open up science | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

This in in the "politics of science" category. Researchers are getting tired of heavy publication costs imposed by scientific journals, who often not only charge authors for publishing, but who then hide the articles behind a pay-wall restricting public access to the data. 

 

"Nearly 9,000 researchers have already signed up to a boycott of journals that restrict free sharing as part of a campaign dubbed the "academic spring" by supporters due to its potential for revolutionising the spread of knowledge."

 

"But the intervention of the Wellcome Trust, the largest non-governmental funder of medical research after the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is likely to galvanise the movement by forcing academics it funds to publish in open online journals."

 

(My comment:) 

 

Don't know quite what to think of this.

 

Neither the Wellcome Trust (established by the Wellcome pharmaceutical company) nor the Gates Foundation are usually present when free access to scientific data is needed. Perhaps they are thinking to ride the coattails of a popular movement...

A Higher Level of Freedom: The Benefits of Cannabis To Healh

A Higher Level of Freedom: The Benefits of Cannabis To Healh | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
While this article is not focused on the recreational use of cannabis, Terence McKenna's quote speaks directly to a sacred right, increasingly being legislated against in our society, namely, the ability to choose and use substances that grow freely on this Earth as our medicine.

 

"In a day and age where possession of an herb like cannabis is an offense punishable by incarceration, it is important for us to reflect on how we arrived at this dark point in time."

 

"Herbs, after all, were put here by God. If you prefer the word Nature, the point is the same, and it was put best by Bob Marley when he said: "you can't tell God it [cannabis] is illegal."

 

"And yet authorities are telling God, and you and me, that is is illegal, despite a growing body of scientific evidence that it has profound potential as a medicine. Does this not in some way call into question the very legitimacy and authority of those who would lay claim to the right to decide what a human can or can not use a natural substance to improve their health, or enliven their spirit?"

Manipulating Evolution - How deep does it go? | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Jon Rappoport on human genetic engineering:

 

"On the one hand we are fed “highly positive” assurances that designer genetics will enable the creation of smarter, more talented, stronger, healthier people of the future. On the other hand, we are told that the exigencies of “public health care” make it necessary to differentiate between “viable and non-viable” patients."

 

"These two threads are woven together, and in the confusion people are giving in, more and more, to the idea of a New Eugenics."

 

"And if by chance, they discover a reliable way to utilize gene insertion to produce sterility and infertility, they will see a path to quiet depopulation. And then who will control the technology? Wide-eyed futurists who teach at universities, or calculating operatives who work for the hardest-line Globalists?"

Monsanto ‘Knowingly Poisoned Workers’ Causing Devastating Birth Defects

Monsanto ‘Knowingly Poisoned Workers’ Causing Devastating Birth Defects | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
Monsanto is being brought to court by dozens of Argentinean tobacco farmers who say that the biotech giant knowingly poisoned them with herbicides and pesticides and subsequently caused ”devastating birth defects” in their children.

 

"The farmers are now suing not only Monsanto on behalf of their children, but many big tobacco giants as well. The birth defects that the farmers say occurred as a result are many, and include cerebral palsy, down syndrome, psychomotor retardation, missing fingers, and blindness."

 

"The farmers come from small family-owned farms in Misiones Province and sell their tobacco to many United States distributors. The family farmers say that major tobacco companies like the Philip Morris company asked them to use Monsanto’s herbicides and pesticides, assuring them that the products were safe."

University of Arizona biomedical engineers find new test for effectiveness of baking soda cancer therapy

University of Arizona biomedical engineers find new test for effectiveness of baking soda cancer therapy | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

"Drinking baking soda has been proven to reduce or eliminate the spread of breast cancer to the lungs, brain and bone, but too much baking soda can also damage normal organs."

 

"In other words, this test is designed to lead to personalized medicine for cancer patients, by optimizing the therapy to each individual," said Mark "Marty" Pagel, associate professor of biomedical engineering at the University of Arizona and lead researcher on the project."

 

"Just as people feel the burn from lactic acid produced in their muscles during rigorous exercise, tumors also produce lactic acid when they are actively growing, Pagel said. This acid destroys surrounding tissue, which allows the tumor to grow, invade surrounding areas, and metastasize to other organs in the body."

"Findings showed that infant monkeys given vaccines officially recommended by the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) exhibited autism-like symptoms. Safety studies of medicines are typically conducted in monkeys prior to use in humans, yet such basic research on the current childhood vaccination regimen has never before been done."

 

"The abstracts presented at IMFAR, the world’s top autism science conference, describe biological changes and altered behavior in vaccinated macaques that are similar to those observed in children with autism. Unvaccinated animals showed no such adverse outcomes. The vaccines given were those recommended for U.S. infants in the 1990s, including several with the mercury preservative thimerosal and the Measles-Mumps-Rubella vaccine."

"The “safety” of using Thimerosal as a preservative in vaccines is a proverbial “house of cards” that lacks a scientifically sound toxicological foundation."

 

"As with any such unstable structure, if one of the key “cards” that are propping up this foundationless claim of Thimerosal’s “safety” is proven false, the entire structure is doomed to collapse."

 

The article goes on to explain that the oft-cited study 'proving' that mercury in vaccines is not related to autism is faulty and that the authors knew that Danish autism rates fell after thimerosal was dropped as a vaccine ingredient in Denmark.

 

It compares the situation with the US, where mercury is still widely contained in vaccines, and where autism rates are skyrocketing.

Alert: 300+ Health Problems Linked To Statin Drugs

Alert: 300+ Health Problems Linked To Statin Drugs | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
A growing body of clinical research now indicates that the cholesterol-lowering class of drugs known as statins, are associated with over 300 adverse health effects -- research boldly flying in the face of national health policy, medical insurance premium guidelines, statin drug manufacturer advertising claims, and the general sentiment of the public, with approximately 1 in every 4 adult Americans over 45 currently using these drugs to "prevent heart disease."

 

The Cholesterol Myth

 

For well over 40 years, statin drugs have successfully concretized a century old myth about the primary cause of heart disease: namely, that cholesterol "causes" plaque build up in the arteries, ultimately leading to obstruction of blood flow, and subsequent morbidity and mortality.

 

Indeed, the medical establishment and drug companies have been singing the praises of this "cholesterol myth," to the tune of 25 billion dollars in statin drug sales, annually.

"Microbiologists at New York University have published a new study that says the overprescribing of antibiotics could be making us fat! Researchers fed infant mice low doses of penicillin; after 30 weeks, penicillin-fed mice were between 10 and 15 per cent bigger and twice as fat as drug-free mice."

 

"This affirms research from Copenhagen which found that infants given antibiotics within the first six months of life were more likely to be overweight at age 7, even if their mother was of a healthy weight."

 

"The study also showed that low doses of antibiotics shifted the balance of certain gut microbes, reducing the numbers of Lactobacillus, a “good” bacterium linked to a lower risk of cancer recurrence. A healthy gut that contains a great variety of good bacteria is our best protection against cancer; after all, our intestines are a powerhouse of our body’s immune system."
