Study Shows BPA Substitutes May Cause Same Health Issues As The Original

By Patricia Hunt, Washington State University and Tegan Horan, Washington State University

The credibility of scientific findings hinges on their reproducibility. As a scientist, it is therefore disastrous when you are unable to replicate your own findings. Our laboratory has found itself in just this situation several times; in each instance, unintended environmental exposure distorted our data. Our first accidental foray into toxicology 20 years ago convinced us of the need to understand the reproductive effects of environmental chemical contaminants. The latest twist in our journey down that road adds a new dimension to an old concern, BPA...

Iran WARNING: US tells airlines not to fly through airspace as WW3 fears rise

The advisory also warns military activities linked to the bloody conflict in Syria have been ramped across Iran's airspace.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington are running high following Donald Trump’s controversial decision to pull out of the landmark Iran nuclear deal re-introduce economic sanctions last month.

Flight Service Bureau, which provides safety information on airspace to airlines, said "without seeming alarmist", the deteriorating relationship between the US and Iran must be taken into account when planning flights in Iran's airspace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is getting just about as serious as is a heart attack: I find myself very alarmed at these developments.

Dave Murphy: Will Monsanto's Loss Result In Less Poison In Our Food?

In November 2016, a very concerning report -- Glyphosate: Unsafe On Any Plate -- was released by The Detox Project and Food Democracy Now!, raising the alarm of the high levels of glyphosate in the US food supply and the (deliberate?) low levels of awareness of its associated health risks.

Soon after its release, we brought Dave Murphy, executive director of Food Democracy Now!, on the podcast to explain the explosive findings within this report on the world's most-used herbicide (more commonly known by its retail brand: Roundup). We asked: Are we being poisoned in the pursuit of profit?

As happened in past decades with the alcohol and tobacco industries, the glyphosate report added compelling evidence that profits have indeed taken a priority over consumer safety in our food production system -- and as public health concerns mounted, Big Ag started circling its wagons and attacking the questioners rather than embracing open scrutiny.

Report: Pharma exec says he had 'moral requirement' to raise drug price 400%

A pharmaceutical company executive defended his company's recent 400% drug price increase, telling the Financial Times that his company had a "moral requirement to sell the product at the highest price." The head of the US Food and Drug Administration blasted the executive in a response on Twitter.

Nirmal Mulye, founder and president of Nostrum Pharmaceuticals, commented in a story Tuesday about the decision to raise the price of an antibiotic mixture called nitrofurantoin from about $500 per bottle to more than $2,300.

The drug is listed by the World Health Organization as an "essential" medicine for lower urinary tract infections.

"I think it is a moral requirement to make money when you can," Mulye told the Financial Times, "to sell the product for the highest price."

WANTING IT BADLY IS NOT ENOUGH: REAL PROBLEMS FOR CREATORS DESERVE REAL SOLUTIONS

As the European Parliament prepares for tomorrow's vote on the new Copyright Directive with its provisions requiring mass-scale filtering of all public communications to check for copyright infringement (Article 13) and its provisions requiring paid permission to link to the news if you include as little as two words from the headline in your link text (Article 11), a dismaying number of "creators groups" are supporting it, telling their members that this will be good for them and their flagging financial fortunes.

The real incomes of real creators are really important (disclosure: my primary income source comes from writing science fiction novels for Tor Books, a division of Macmillan). Improving the incomes of the creators who enliven our days, inform, shock, delight and frighten us is a genuine Good Thing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This law means more money for the really big corporations, and more opportunity to sway public opinion their way, while translating into less and less compensation for smaller players, who may have alternative opinions than the bigger guys, and be absolutely correct in their assessments.

Commonly-prescribed antidepressant Prozac may be driving the antibiotic-resistance crisis

The commonly-prescribed antidepressant fluoxetine, which appears under the brand name Prozac, may be driving the antibiotic-resistance crisis, new research suggests.

When E.coli, which can cause food poisoning, is exposed to fluoxetine, the bacteria undergoes genetic mutations that stop it responding to common antibiotics, a study found. E.coli leads to life-threatening kidney damage in up to 10 per cent of cases.

Record class action launched against Australia's banks, Aussies owed up to $3000 each

Up to five million Australians could get thousands of dollars back from the big banks under what is set to be the largest class action in the nation's history.

Law firm Slater and Gordon will today launch an unprecedented wave of legal action on behalf of around one in three Australian workers believed to have their super invested as cash with the banks, according to a News.com.au report.

TheHerald that New Zealand is not being investigated at this stage because the systems here are different.

It is estimated the landmark lawsuits could get some account holders as much as AU$3000 (NZ$3270) back and end up costing the banks more than AU$1 billion.

Roundup Weedkiller - Weeds-R-Us

We're serving up weedkiller in Cheerios, sandwiches, corn chips and everything soy. We were sold a bill of goods. Not to worry; totally harmless. First successful lawsuit has challenged Monsanto's in-house research assurances. A few million in litigation pain, and a jolly good start.

My cousin lost her life, leaving two little kids, via a Glyphosate-infiltrated well--Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma thirty years ago, age 27. Many neighbors had the same issue and were ailing. I attended her funeral; she was the first to die.

They lived in rural, flat Virginia--hot, humid. They were not farmers but plenty Roundup-based farming in her area. Sprays tended to settle and not disperse.

Have often thought with pity of the American Midwest, former breadbasket of the world--now laid waste by GMO corn and soy mega-plantings, mega-sprayed. (Also those who spend big bucks to live alongside heavily-sprayed--at night--golf courses)

The Feds Propose More Vaccine Dangers For Pregnant Females And Their Fetuses But Guarantee Complete Legal Liability Protection To Vaccine Makers—What?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

This information is taken directly from Autism Action Network’s “Take Action” online campaign, which everyone ought to be fed up enough with vaccine mandates to participate in. Congress sold out U.S. citizens on their rights to self-determination and healthcare when it passed the 1986 Vaccine Law, which must be rescinded NOW...

Feds Charge a Russian With Hack of 80 Million JP Morgan Customers

The Department of Justice announced the indictment of a Russian citizen. He is the fifth man to be charged for targeting several US financial institutions between 2012 and 2015.

The Department of Justice announced the indictment and extradition of a Russian hacker accused of being part of the group who stole around 80 million customers data from JP Morgan Chase in 2014.

On Friday, the feds announced the indictment of Andrei Tyurin, 35. Tyurin was extradited from Georgia and arrived in New York City on Friday, according to the authorities.

“Tyurin’s alleged hacking activities were so prolific, they lay claim to the largest theft of U.S. customer data from a single financial institution in history, accounting for a staggering 80 million-plus victims,” Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of these indictments, for events which allegedly happened in 2012, 2014, and 2015, is just too cute.

What the Feds are most probably going to do, is have the guys cop plea deals, so that they can be "turned" so that they can be doing this hacking on behalf of the Federal Government.

But the announcement on the Friday before a weekend after which the US military may well be engaging with both the Syrian and Russian military in Syria?!?

More Russian demonization ahead of this military conflict, is what its timing of these indictments is all about, unfortunately.

DARPA’s New Brain Chip Enables Telepathic Control of Drone Swarms

The US military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has created a brain-computer interface that enables a person to control everything from a swarm of drones to an advanced fighter jet using nothing but their thoughts and a special brain chip.

Life imitates art, in defense tech no less than in society. In the 1982 techno-thriller film "Firefox," Clint Eastwood steals a fictional Soviet fighter jet called the "MiG-31 Firefox," a Mach 6-capable stealth fighter he piloted with his thoughts. But now in 2018, the US military has gone even further: you can control a whole group of drones or fighter jets with your thoughts.

It is terrifying, just how quickly science fiction translates into science fact.

AMAZON IS FAR MORE DANGEROUS AND POWERFUL THAN YOU WANT TO ADMIT

The sneaky thing about Amazon’s increased dominance in so many key aspects of our lives is that much of the perniciousness is hidden. No one’s going to tell you about all the retailers who have gotten pressured or destroyed via its tactics while you’re happily clicking “add to cart” and smiling about 2-day free shipping. In this sense, it can be best compared to the evils of factory farming. Most people just simply have no idea about the immense damage going on behind the scenes as they indulge in incredible convenience and what looks like a good deal.

Today’s post should be seen as an update to last year’s article referenced above. In the months that have followed, I’ve been consistently frustrated by the lack of interest when it comes to the dangers presented by Amazon and its richest man in the world ($165 billion as of last count) CEO Jeff Bezos. The following Twitter exchange is a good example of what I mean:

Major opioid maker to pay for overdose-antidote development

A company whose prescription opioid marketing practices are being blamed for sparking the addiction and overdose crisis says it's helping to fund an effort to make a lower-cost overdose antidote.

OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma announced Wednesday that it's making a $3.4 million grant to Harm Reduction Therapeutics, a Pittsburgh-based nonprofit, to help develop a low-cost naloxone nasal spray.

The announcement comes as lawsuits from local governments blaming Purdue, based in Stamford, Connecticut, and other companies in the drug industry for using deceptive marketing practices to encourage heavy prescribing of the powerful and addictive painkillers. Last week, the number of lawsuits against the industry being overseen by a federal judge topped 1,000.

'Do not eat or sell any Honey Smacks': CDC issues nationwide warning after 30 more contract Salmonella from the Kellogg's cereal

Thirty more people have contracted Salmonella from eating Kellogg Co's Honey Smacks cereal, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has revealed.

That brings the total number to 130 cases in 36 states - 34 of whom have been hospitalized.

Health officials had thought the outbreak, which started in March, was brought under control in June when they recalled 1.3 million cases of the cereal in affected states.

But now they are warning Americans, again, to avoid the product nationwide.

How Many People are on Psychiatric Drugs?

“Antidepressants are neurotoxic, that is, they harm the brain and disrupt its functions. As a result, they cause innumerable kinds of abnormal thinking and behaviors, including mania, suicide and violence. In the process, they cause detectable damage to the brain of the child or adult, and also to the fetus of pregnant mothers who take the drug.” (Peter Breggin, MD and psychiatrist, author of Toxic Psychiatry, St. Martin’s Press)

FLASHBACK - The third-leading cause of death in US most doctors don't want you to know about

On the morning of her final day of treatment, a pharmacy technician prepared the intravenous bag, filling it with more than 20 times the recommended dose of sodium chloride. Within hours Emily was on life support and declared brain dead.

Three days later she was gone.

Sadly, Emily's case is not unique. According to a recent study by Johns Hopkins, more than 250,000 people in the United States die every year because of medical mistakes, making it the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer.

Other studies report much higher figures, claiming the number of deaths from medical error to be as high as 440,000. The reason for the discrepancy is that physicians, funeral directors, coroners and medical examiners rarely note on death certificates the human errors and system failures involved. Yet death certificates are what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention rely on to post statistics for deaths nationwide.

Canola oil is the margarine of yesteryear for uneducated health enthusiasts who have no idea it clogs blood and promotes dementia

What kind of food never spoils? You get one guess. That’s right – the kind you should never eat. So then why do you think most health food stores use canola oil mixed into nearly every packaged and jarred food on their shelves? The honest answer is they’re trying to make more money. Insects won’t go near canola oil – there’s a sign not to eat it right there. Its shelf life runs close to forever. Mix canola oil into salad dressings, mayonnaise, potato salad, macaroni salad, hummus, cereal, or corn chips and their shelf life extends almost indefinitely.

Plus canola oil is the cheapest “food” oil on the planet. Canola oil gets fancy, appealing labels too, like “expeller pressed” or even “certified organic,” but it wouldn’t really matter if you painted rapeseed hot pink and stamped it “grade A,” because it is what it is. Now let’s talk about what it does to the health of human beings who eat it regularly.

An Arizona developer who owes Iowa millions turned nursing homes and apartments into his cash cows, court filings allege

Alan Israel owes the people of Iowa $2 million but lives in a $1.3 million home in Paradise Valley, Arizona, the wealthiest suburb of Phoenix.

He has lived in Arizona for at least 30 years, though many of his business dealings — encompassing nursing homes, apartments and housing development — have been in Iowa.

His story, based on hundreds of filings in state and federal court, is about the intersection of commerce and health care in Iowa, and the profits that nursing homes can generate for owners whose primary business is real estate, not health care.

There are the two Keokuk nursing homes he allegedly used as a money-laundering operation, collecting $3 million in Medicaid overpayments while elderly residents complained they had been left to lay in their own urine.

Waymo's self driving minivans 'don't understand basic road features' and struggle to turn left

Waymo is still struggling to teach its self driving cars basic driving manoeuvres as it prepares to launch its self driving taxi service.

'The Waymo vans have trouble with many unprotected left turns and with merging into heavy traffic in the Phoenix area, especially on highways,' according to The Information, which says the cars have a 'Zoolander' problem similar to the Ben Stiller character in the hit film, who struggled to turn left on a catwalk.

It also says the vans 'don't understand basic road features, such as metered red and green lights that regulate the pace of cars merging onto freeways.'

Missouri becomes first state in U.S. to regulate use of the word 'meat'

On Tuesday, Missouri becomes the first state in the country to have a law on the books that prohibits food makers to use the word “meat” to refer to anything other than animal flesh.

This takes aim at manufacturers of what has been dubbed fake or non-traditional meat.

Clean meat -- also known as lab-grown meat -- is made of cultured animal tissue cells, while plant-based meat is generally from ingredients such as soy, tempeh and seitan.

The state law forbids "misrepresenting a product as meat that is not derived from harvested production livestock or poultry." Violators may be fined $1,000 and imprisoned for a year.

Vietnam Wants Monsanto to Pay for Chemical Warfare Waged by US Troops - Reports

A landmark court ruling in the United States prompted the Vietnamese government to demand compensations from Monsanto for the suffering caused by one of the company’s most notorious products.

Vietnamese authorities demand that agrochemical giant Monsanto provide compensation to the victims of Agent Orange, a harmful toxic defoliant employed by the US military during Vietnam War.

According to Vietnam News, Hanoi made its move after a jury in the US ordered Monsanto, which was purchased by Bayer earlier this year, to pay $289 million in compensation to a school groundskeeper named Dewayne Johnson, who claimed that the company’s Roundup weed-killer caused his terminal cancer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Agent Orange is most definitely NOT harmless. It is based on Dioxyn; one of the most toxic and long-lasting chemicals known. Testing of Agent Orange was done here in Hawaii and a couple students died in a lab accident at UH Manoa. There are still parts of the Big Island where testing was done that are fenced off because of the lingering toxicity.

Bayer’s Monsanto faces thousands of glyphosate cancer-risk lawsuits

The number of lawsuits against Monsanto has surged from 5,200 to 8,000 and may cost its new owner Bayer billions of dollars in damages in the coming years.

The surge in lawsuits followed the $289-million California court verdict when Monsanto was ordered to pay damages to a man who alleged the company’s glyphosate-based weed-killers, including Roundup, caused his cancer. Bayer’s shares lost more than 10 percent since then.

When asked whether Bayer would consider settling cases out of court, the company’s Chief Executive Werner Baumann said: “We will vigorously defend this case and all upcoming cases.”

Welcome To The Minority Report: Thousands Of Stores Plan Facial Recognition Use For Anti-Theft

By Aaron Kesel

Hundreds of retail stores and soon thousands are investigating using biometric facial recognition software FaceFirst to build a database of shoplifters to aid in the fight against theft, Peter Trepp CEO of FaceFirst told BuzzFeed News.

The software is called FaceFirst and is designed to scan faces as far as 50 to 100 feet away. As customers walk through a store entrance, the video camera captures repetitious images of each shopper and chooses the clearest one to store. The software then analyzes that image and compares it to a database of “bad customers” that the retailer has compiled; if there is a match, the software sends an alert to store employees that a “high risk” customer has entered the door...

THE LIST OF PRODUCTS AND FOODS THAT HAVE TESTED POSITIVE FOR MONSANTO’S CARCINOGENIC GLYPHOSATE

Glyphosate is so prevalent in our environment that trace amounts of it is now found in a wide variety of consumer products, including foods and personal hygiene products, in the human body, and in water supplies.

To some scientists and related officials, none of these products individually contain high enough levels of glyphosate to pose a health risk, however, others argue that consuming trace amounts leads to dangerous accumulations within the body, as it is known to bio-accumulate in major organs and bones.

10 MAJOR CONFLICTS OF INTEREST BETWEEN BIG PHARMA AND CONSUMER GOODS CORPORATIONS

One of the most popular ways of achieving a passive income is by creating and selling high-quality inexpensive products with the hope of eventually hooking consumers to expensive long-term subscriptions and services. For example, cell phone and cable companies promote unbeatable front-end deals but ultimately leave the consumer feeling frustrated with contracts they didn’t even realize they were getting themselves into. Big Pharma and other large consumer goods corporations use a similar strategy. Unassuming consumer products serve as cheap front-end items, eventually leading to chronic diseases which require future prescriptions as their expensive long-term passive income streams. Documented below are 10 harmful conflicts of interest between Big Pharma and a few of our most popular consumer goods corporations, all of which should be made illegal immediately.
