African Babies As Guinea Pigs? Malaria, Bill Gate$, Big Drug$ and Big Buck$

African Babies As Guinea Pigs? Malaria, Bill Gate$, Big Drug$ and Big Buck$ | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
When it comes to the new malaria vaccine developed by Glaxo, Smith and Kline (GSK) now being tested on infants in the east African country of Tanzania I will let the words of an industry insider tell it best:

 

There is not much profit to be made by big pharma from a highly effective malaria vaccine of practical use for African sufferers…. [T]hey are fiendishly clever at exploiting any and all opportunities to reap big benefits.

 

The poorly performing malaria vaccine RTS,S, created by GSK with a healthy infusion of funds from the Gates Foundation, is being tested in Phase III trials in Africa now. Including many thousands of African infants.

 

GSK will not profit from RTS,S. However, RTS,S is injected along with a new GSK adjuvant called AS01.

 

GSK will make vast sums from the new adjuvant, the testing of which is being piggybacked on their altruistic malaria vaccine (which, incidentally, is virtually entirely ineffective without AS01).

 

Interestingly, RTS,S (or should I say, AS01) testing in African infants began before AS01 trials in children were permitted in the United States.

 

GSK physician-scientists also held positions of significance in the Gates Foundation…conflict-of-interest issues notwithstanding.

Soda Consumption Linked To Asthma, COPD, Study Says

Soda Consumption Linked To Asthma, COPD, Study Says | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
If obesity and heart disease haven't stopped you from over-consuming soda, the increased risk of developing a chronic breathing condition just might do the trick.

 

Australian researchers analyzed the health and soda drinking habits of 16,907 people age 16 or older in southern Australia between 2008 and 2010, according to the Guardian.

 

Their findings revealed that people who consumed at least a half a liter of soft drinks a day were more than twice as likely to develop either breathing condition compared with those who refrained from the drink altogether, Med Page Today reports.

 

"The amount of soft drink consumption is associated with an increased chance of asthma and or COPD. There exists a dose-response relationship, which means the more soft drink one consumes, the higher the chance of having these diseases,

Who Killed Lard? - The story of how a perfectly good fat fell out of favor

Who Killed Lard? - The story of how a perfectly good fat fell out of favor | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
Lard didn't just fall out of favor. It was pushed. It was a casualty of a battle between giant business and corporate interests.

 

Procter & Gamble perfected the modern art of branding with Crisco. It sent out cookbooks touting how good Crisco made you feel. It shipped samples to hospitals and schools, then bragged about how those institutions trusted Crisco. It rushed onto the newly invented radio waves, sponsoring cooking programs, that featured, what else, Crisco.

 

Poor lard didn't stand a chance.

 

In the 1950s, scientists piled on, saying that saturated fats in lard caused heart disease. Restaurants and food manufacturers started to shun lard.

GMOs in Europe - The Anglerfish deception... - La Leva di Archimede

GMOs in Europe - The Anglerfish deception... - La Leva di Archimede | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Consumers in Europe have been vocal in rejecting genetically modified foods. This opposition has led to member states adopting similar positions, in defiance of the EU Commission, which sees genetic modification as a triumph of industry and a potential way of increasing crop yields and agricultural profits.

 

The situation has now become so serious that the EU Commission is looking for ways to change the laws that govern the acceptance of such technologies, recognizing that a common EU stance on genetic modification is becoming an ever more distant dream. It proposed to let countries decide for themselves whether to accept genetic modification on their territory, but there is a hidden intent behind the proposed changes. No longer should, according to the EU bureaucrats, the member states have the possibility to challenge a decision regarding GMOs on scientific grounds. The reason: The European Food Safety Authority is the highest and indeed the unchallengeable authority on such scientific matters.

 

That is the same EU scientific body that treats vital nutrients (vitamins and minerals) as if they were a threat to human health, in need of "toxicological" assessment, while considering toxic fluoride to be a nutrient to be sold alongside vitamins and minerals in food supplements...

Formaldehyde in Vaccines: Does injected form induce changes in DNA and stimulate cancer cells to grow?

Formaldehyde in Vaccines: Does injected form induce changes in DNA and stimulate cancer cells to grow? | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
Formaldehyde in vaccines is injected into your child. Before you consider another vaccine for your child, consider this important information...

 

Granted, there was much detail given to inhalation of formaldehyde gas with some studies documenting the effects of adding formaldehyde to the animals drinking water. However, there were no studies performed on injecting formaldehyde into the animals, as often occurs when vaccines containing formaldehyde are injected into infants, toddlers, teens, adults, and senior citizens.

 

Question: Why no injection studies on formaldehyde? Since formaldehyde or Formalin are excipients used in the manufacture of the following vaccines...

[Videos] Vaccine Safety - Evaluating the Science | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

This is a series of videos of talks given at the Vaccine Safety Conference that was held in Jamaica from 3 to 8 January 2011.

Speakers include Beatrice Golomb, PhD, MD;  Yehuda Shoenfeld, MD, FRCP; Dr Andrew Wakefield; Dr. Russell Blaylock, MD, CCN; Vicky Debold, PhD, RN; Barbara Loe Fisher, President and Co-Founder of National Vaccine Information Center; Micheal Vonn, Lawyer; Christpher Exley, Ph.D, Professor, Researcher; Christopher Shaw, Ph.D, Professor; Richard Deth, Ph.D, Professor; Romain Gherardi, Professor.

 

You can re-live the vaccine conference on this page. Talks are somewhere between 30 and 50 minutes each. This is a resource page for anyone who wants to get deeper into the subject of vaccines and I would be happy if someone working in a national health authority would visit the conference and get this important "other" view on the vaccine issue, so we can start thinking about changing national vaccine policies...

David Swaddle's curator insight, August 19, 2013 7:22 PM

OK, the content might be slightly controvertial at times, but the reason I'm posting is that it's a good example of taking a conference and sharing the learning afterwards.

 

I don't believe that this is valid for American physicians' CPD points, as there is no test or evaluatin of knowledge, but it would be allowed under current Australian rules.

 

Simple filming and packaging on a web page can still be an effective method for spreading learning further.

Time to Stop Talking About Low-Fat, Say HSPH Nutrition Experts

Time to Stop Talking About Low-Fat, Say HSPH Nutrition Experts | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
It is time to end the low-fat myth, Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) nutrition experts told food industry leaders at the seventh annual World of Healthy Flavors Conference held in Napa, CA, from January 19 to 21, 2011.

 

They encouraged audience members to avoid “low-fat” terminology and thinking, since diets low in fat are often high in sodium and carbohydrates from sources such as white flour and rice, refined snacks, and sugary drinks. Instead, the panelists said, chefs should focus on cutting trans fats from their menus and educating consumers about seeking out healthy fats.

HUNDREDS of public sector workers who claim their lives have been wrecked by vaccines say the Government has abandoned them.

 

Up to 200 doctors, nurses, firefighters, prison officers, police officers, forensic scientists and binmen say they have developed serious physical and mental health problems after injections essential for their work over the past 10 years. All have given up their jobs and some are now 60 per cent disabled.


Last night it emerged they are to miss out on payouts, prompting furore among campaigners. More than 150 MPs have lent their support to demands for a better deal for the victims.

Vaccines: 30 cases of narcolepsy identified by Irish Health Services | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
A group representing families who believe their children developed narcolepsy after the Pandemrix swine flu vaccine met officials from the HSE and Department of Education.

 

The Health Service Executive has said that it has identified 30 cases of the sleeping disorder narcolepsy as part of an investigation into a possible link between the condition and the swine flu vaccine, Pandemrix.


However, the body has said that this figure includes those who have not had a final clinical diagnosis and a small number of patients who did not receive the vaccine.


The HSE has said that it is working to identify any potential cases as part of ongoing clinical research into any possible link and its Health Protection Surveillance Centre is leading this research.

Why is a Monsanto lobbyist serving as the FDA's Food Safety Czar?

Why is a Monsanto lobbyist serving as the FDA's Food Safety Czar? | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
Why is a former Monsanto lobbyist currently serving as the FDA's food safety czar waging war on small dairy farms that produce fresh milk?

 

While factory farm operators are getting away with serious food safety violations, raw milk dairy farmers and distributors across the country have been subjected to armed raids and hauled away in handcuffs.

 

The Food and Drug Administration is running sting operations followed by "guns-drawn raids usually reserved for terrorists and drug lords" as part of a crackdown on unpasteurized milk.1 Meanwhile, the FDA is letting the highly consolidated industrial meat and factory farm industry off the hook despite growing problems.

 

Not surprisingly, the person responsible for prioritizing armed raids on small dairies over holding agribusiness accountable is a former Monsanto attorney and chief super lobbyist.

Modern Wheat Really Isn't Wheat At All

Modern Wheat Really Isn't Wheat At All | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
Today's "wheat," he says, isn't even wheat, thanks to some of the most intense crossbreeding efforts ever seen. "The wheat products sold to you today are nothing like the wheat products of our grandmother's age, very different from the wheat of the early 20th Century, and completely transformed from the wheat of the Bible and earlier," he says.

 

Plant breeders changed wheat in dramatic ways. Once more than four feet tall, modern wheat--the type grown in 99 percent of wheat fields around the world--is now a stocky two-foot-tall plant with an unusually large seed head. Dr. Davis says accomplishing this involved crossing wheat with non-wheat grasses to introduce altogether new genes, using techniques like irradiation of wheat seeds and embryos with chemicals, gamma rays, and high-dose X-rays to induce mutations.

Young children exposed to anesthesia multiple times show elevated rates of ADHD | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
Mayo Clinic researchers have found that multiple exposures to anesthesia at a young age are associated with higher rates of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

 

When basic science studies in the medical literature began to suggest anesthesia used in surgery causes changes in the brains of young animals, Dr. Warner and a group of researchers at Mayo Clinic took note.


"Those studies piqued our interest," Dr. Warner says. "We were skeptical that the findings in animals would correlate with kids, but it appears that it does."

Transgene insects: Scientists call for more open data

Transgene insects: Scientists call for more open data | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
While genetically modified plants have already been introduced into the wild on a large scale in some parts of the world, the release of genetically modified animals is still at a relatively early stage.

 

A team of scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön, Germany has now published a study examining the free release of genetically modified insects in Malaysia, USA, and Cayman Islands. Their findings suggest deficits in the scientific quality of regulatory documents and a general absence of accurate experimental descriptions available to the public before releases start. The researchers call for clear and accurate descriptions of releases to be very widely circulated before insects are released in a trial - particularly if mosquito species that bite humans are involved. They also provide an innovative checklist to assist journalists and the public in assessing the scientific credibility of regulatory release authorizations.

New research shows vitamin D slashes risk of cancers by 77 percent; cancer industry refuses to support cancer prevention

New research shows vitamin D slashes risk of cancers by 77 percent; cancer industry refuses to support cancer prevention | Health Supreme | Scoop.it
Exciting new research conducted at the Creighton University School of Medicine in Nebraska has revealed that supplementing with vitamin D and calcium can reduce your risk of cancer by an astonishing 77 percent. This includes breast cancer, colon cancer, skin cancer and other forms of cancer. This research provides strong new evidence that vitamin D is the single most effective medicine against cancer, far outpacing the benefits of any cancer drug known to modern science.

 

The study involved 1,179 healthy women from rural Nebraska. One group of women was given calcium(around 1500 mg daily) and vitamin D (1100 IU daily) while another group was given placebo. Over four year, the group receiving the calcium and vitamin Dsupplements showed a 60 percent decrease incancers. Considering just the last three years of the study reveals an impressive 77 percent reduction incancer due to supplementation.

USA: Why H.R.3380 is our only means now to stop the FDA's Vitamin Grab - National Health Federation

If the Food and Drug Administration has its way, thousands of supplements will be removed from store shelves. We’ve heard this cry before, but this time it is very true. Supplements that you and I might take for granted – like resveratrol, L-GABA, curcumin, bioperine, and many more – which have not hurt a soul but only helped the health of millions, are slated for oblivion because the outlaw FDA thinks that it alone can decide whether they are safe or not. It might seem like a joke, but the FDA is dead serious.


Ignoring the law passed by Congress back in 1994, the FDA wants all new dietary ingredients (i.e., those on the market from October 15, 1994 on) to jump through regulatory hoops that Congress never intended for them. More specifically, the FDA’s draft Guidance for Industry on New Dietary Ingredients (issued last July) would subject these “new” supplements to expensive, drug-like testing requirements for safety that will effectively eliminate thousands of supplements because it simply will not be cost-effective for companies to spend the millions of dollars on each dietary-supplement ingredient. Sales will not justify the expense and the products will be dropped like hot potatoes.

Effectiveness of vaccine against pandemic influenza A/H1N1 among people with underlying chronic diseases

One thing is developing and measuring antibodies against influenza virus H1N1, and another thing is to actually obtain clinical benefit after vaccination.

 

Hundreds of thousands were vaccinated in this Danish study, but hospital admissions due to H1N1 influenza virus did not diminish!

 

There results come with some interesting legal consequences: no one can actually declare anymore that after vaccination the patient’s overall health is protected.

Pneumococcal vaccine exposed as breeding ground for staphylococcus aureus | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

Often overlooked as a major catalyst in vaccine related trauma (typically in deference to the Measles, Mumps, Rubella shots), it turns out the hidden dangers of the PCV Vaccine may, in fact, supersede those of the MMR series – for a number of critical reasons; a combination of factors, chiefly timing & the extreme nature of bacterial build-up impinging on the under-developed Immune system in babies.

 

All vaccinated children in the Western hemisphere are now carriers of what is known as MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus/anti-biotic resistant super-bug), due to cross-infection primarily from the routine administering of the Pneumococcal (PCV) Vaccine – in combination with post vaccination anti-biotic & anti-viral drug treatment, an accumulative assault which strips a child of his/her natural anti-biotic resistance whilst infecting them with a host of bacterial serotypes...

Thank you Sepp, for your outstanding job on curating the news in the areas that I care for. Outstanding.

I take the opportunity of this new story to highlight a small area of improvement: titles.

In this story you have used a very hard to understand title.
You could have used PCV Vaccine Hidden Dangers as opening keywords, making this more intelligible for non experts and more SEO friendly in terms of indexing according to primary keywords.

Hope you can improve on this front to make your content reach more people and become more visible through search engines.
