Top 10 medical treatments that can make you SICKER than before you took them

What medical doctor has ever asked their patient at consultation whether they’re consuming genetically modified organisms (GMOs)? Why not? That refers to produce that contains chemical insecticides and chemical herbicides that can interact dangerously with chemical medications. What medical doctor analyzes the adverse affects of mixing mercury and formaldehyde with blood thinners or anxiety medications? Why not? Flu shots are often loaded with those toxic ingredients, and heavy metal toxins can certainly interfere with neurons in the brain and the central nervous system. Even the toxins in tap water can affect the central nervous system, so what happens when you wash down those anxiety medications with tap water, consume an artificial sweetener like aspartame, eat some food containing MSG, and then get a flu shot?

Autistic children given sex change drugs by the NHS: Up to 150 youngsters treated with puberty-blocking jabs 'might not even be transgender'

Autistic teenagers are being given powerful drugs which pave the way for a sex change, despite experts’ fears that they might not be transgender at all.

Up to 150 youngsters have been given ‘puberty blocker’ drugs, which stop the body maturing, after being seen at Britain’s only NHS transgender clinic for children.

These drugs, which can permanently weaken bones, are often the first step to changing sex.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are getting into "Mad Scientist" territory here.

Hurting bad!

I am very embarrassed to have to write this. I have had Crohn's disease
for 44 years and it hasn't been easy. I have had several run ins with the feds over my choice of medicine. Since 2014 I have been in continues flares. From 2004 to 2014 I had a remission,a little over 1 flare a year.Since April of 2014 it has been one continuous flare after another.
A couple of years ago my wife canceled my medical insurance and I haven't been to the doctors since. Should have seen the handwriting on the wall.
Wife told me in early July she was moving on because of my disease which the lady knew about before we were married.
If anybody needs a good internet researcher and would employ me so I can
get on with my life I would appreciate it Big Time and so would my cats.
HELP!!!

CONFIRMED: Chemical giants have been colluding with regulators to suppress information on the deadly effects of pesticides

The pesticide industry is widely viewed as being just as toxic as the chemicals themselves, but now new evidence unearthed by the Poison Papers has shown that toxicity extends all the way up to government regulatory agencies. Corruption and collusion in government is a disease — and its spreading at the behest of chemical manufacturers looking to make profits at any cost, even at the expense of human life. Internal documents from a number of agencies show that officials from administrative agencies like the EPA have been taking action to cover up the dangers of pesticides and the faulty science behind their “safety” studies for decades.

Remember the ZIKA virus mass hysteria pushed by the media? Where are all the shrunken-headed babies we were warned would sweep across America?

So how can we explain the surge in brain deformities that was seen in some parts of Brazil a few years ago? Interestingly, the problem coincided with the dumping of a larvicide in the Brazilian water supply by the government known as pyriproxyfen. Shortly thereafter, a big increase in congenital malformations including microcephaly in newborn babies was detected.

This larvicide is known for producing malformations in mosquitoes. In fact, the way it works is by stunting the growth of mosquito larvae, altering their development process as they go from larva to pupa to adults, and it’s essentially engineered to cause malformations that prevent mosquitoes from developing fully.

It’s classified as “very toxic to aquatic life with long-lasting effects,” and the product’s warnings specifically say to “avoid release to the environment”.

Do you really want to use that? Artificial sweeteners linked to unwanted weight gain

The researchers carried out an investigation of abdominal fat biopsy samples from four obese and four healthy subjects who regularly consumed low-calorie sweeteners. Through this analysis, researchers found that these subjects had increased expression of fat-producing genes. The subjects also exhibited increased sugar transport into their cells in comparison to biopsies from subjects who do not consume artificial sweeteners.

Furthermore, since a lot of artificial sweeteners are much sweeter than actual sugar, these chemicals increase the expression of taste receptors, triggering high blood sugar. In the study, those who consume artificial sweeteners had their expression of taste receptors increase by up to 2.5 times. In addition to promoting fat storage, the artificial sweetener aspartame accounts for 75 percent of all reported negative food reactions, such as headaches, dizziness, vision loss, loss of memory, seizures, fatigue, cancer, and sudden death.

Remarkable footage of sole survivor of Amazon tribe emerges

Remarkable footage has been released of an uncontacted indigenous man who has lived alone in an Amazon forest for at least 22 years.

Semi-naked and swinging an axe vigorously as he fells a tree, the man, believed to be in his 50s, has never been filmed so clearly before and appears to be in excellent condition.

“He is very well, hunting, maintaining some plantations of papaya, corn,” said Altair Algayer, a regional co-ordinator for the Brazilian government indigenous agency Funai in the Amazon state of Rondônia, who was with a team who filmed the footage from a distance. “He has good health and a good physical shape doing all those exercises.”

Known as the “indigenous man in the hole”, he is believed to be the only survivor of an isolated tribe. He hunts forest pigs, birds and monkeys with a bow and arrow and traps prey in hidden holes filled with sharpened staves of wood. He and his group were known for building holes and his hammock is strung over one in his house.

Notes of nuclear? Fukushima radioactivity found in California wine

Radioactive levels are increasing in wine from California's Napa Valley, thanks to the radioactive cloud that drifted from the Fukushima disaster in 2011.
Researchers from the University of Bordeaux Centre d'Études Nucléaires de Bordeaux-Gradignan (CNRS) in France tested California wine from before and after the Fukushima disaster and found there was double the amount of cesium-137 in its Cabernet Sauvignon after the 2011 tsunami caused the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactors to leak.

The radioactive cloud released by the plant drifted all the way to California’s Napa Valley. There, trace amounts of cesium-137 made its way into the vineyard grapes.

The levels varied depending on the wine, researchers found, with Cabernet Sauvignon reds having a higher amount and rosé having the least.

Xanax could be driving America's next drug epidemic: Top psychiatrist warns addictive anti-anxiety meds are being dished out like opioids were in the 90s - and patients are struggling to quit

With the nation's attention on prescription painkillers, there has been scant conversation about the climbing rate of people being prescribed benzodiazepines, potent drugs like Xanax and Valium designed to alleviate anxiety and panic attacks on a short term basis.

Dr Anna Lembke, a psychiatry professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine and author of Drug Dealer MD, warns 'benzos' are being consumed and distributed in a way that eerily echoes the lead-up to the opioid epidemic.

Crucially, she warns, more and more patients are finding it impossible to reduce their dose or quit the drugs even after one prescription, paving the way to either an excruciating battle with withdrawal symptoms or a lifetime of addiction.

CITY MAKES PLASTIC STRAWS FROM RESTAURANTS ILLEGAL, VIOLATORS WILL FACE JAIL AND $1,000 FINE

Santa Barbara, CA – Illustrating the growing American police state, the city of Santa Barbara has passed a law that prohibits bars, restaurants, and other food service businesses from distributing plastic straws to their patrons under penalty of jail time and hefty fines. The Santa Barbara City Council on Tuesday unanimously passed what is likely the most punitive ban on plastic straws in the country—but restaurants will still be able to legally give out straws to customers that request them.

The secret behind fake bipolar disease in children

Columbia University researchers found a 40-fold rise in office visits among youth diagnosed with bipolar disorder between 1994-95 and 2002-3.”

In 1995, a new wind began blowing across the psychiatric landscape. The public wasn’t aware of it. But among professionals, it was big, very big:

Children, including the very young, could, for the first time, legitimately be diagnosed with bipolar disease (aka manic depression).

The impetus for this “revelation” was a 1995 report, “Is Your Child Bipolar?” written by two doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital, Janet Wozniak and Joseph Biederman.

Biederman would go on to become the target of internal investigations at Harvard and Mass General—did the pharmaceutical money he took influence his judgment in deciding bipolar was a real disorder among children? The charges against him were ultimately reduced to a few light slaps on the wrist; he retained his prestigious position.

Claim: WiFi radiation from Fitbits can cause rashes, illnesses, and blood sugar fluctuations

These fitness trackers are worn as bracelets to keep track of the number of steps that people take in a day, how much sleep they get, how many calories they burn and other metrics depending on the model.

However, they accomplish this using Wi-Fi radiation, which may have very serious health effects such as disfiguring rashes and blood sugar fluctuations that promote weight gain. Making matters worse is the fact that the devices are worn directly against the skin. Cell phone instruction manuals warn people to keep their phones at least an inch away from their bodies at all times because of the radiation dangers, so it’s easy to imagine why wearing these trackers against your wrist at all hours is a bad idea.

More Evidence: Cancer “Commits Suicide By Eating Itself” After Exposure to Cannabis

Christina Sanchez, a molecular biologist from Compultense University in Madrid, first reported in 1998 that TetraHydroCannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive component of cannabis, induces tumor cell suicide while leaving healthy non-tumor cells alone.

She discovered that when exposed to THC, tumor cells not only ceased to multiply and proliferate but also destroyed themselves, both in lab tests and animal trials.

A Harvard study from 2007, which remains the most comprehensive ever released on THC’s potential to combat tumors, also found that in just three weeks, doses of THC were able to cut lung cancer tumor growth in half in mice subjects and were able to reduce cancer lesions by even more.

Cannabis may boost the immune system and fight cancer, scientists claim

Studies suggest chemicals called phytocannabinoids could stop cancer cells multiplying and spreading, block the blood supply to tumours, and reduce cancer's ability to survive chemotherapy.

THC – the chemical which gives people a high when they smoke the drug – and others like it could be beneficial, researchers say.

The new research review admits cannabis has 'anti-cancer effects' and says more research needs to be done in real patients to confirm the findings.

Research finds that MSG is dangerous to liver health

MSG is a common flavor enhancer, and many people swear that certain foods simply don’t taste the same without it. That better taste, however, comes with a price as MSG is known to cause a variety of health problems. Research shows it’s particularly dangerous for the health of your liver.

In a study published in the Journal of Autoimmunity, Japanese researchers found a connection between this toxic ingredient and liver inflammation. They found that MSG induces obesity and diabetes by causing liver inflammation and the accumulation of fats in mice. Another study involving some of the same researchers that was published in the Journal of Medicinal Food found that MSG was a critical factor in obesity, even among people who ate a calorie-restricted diet.

What Happened To Informed Consent?

By Rosanne Lindsay

Can people live in a free society without informed consent?

Most people would say no. Informed consent infers that at every fork in the road you have a choice. Most Americans want choice, right?

Wrong.

In 2010, Obamacare forced American citizens to purchase medical insurance–a federal mandate under the Affordable Care Act. The law requires that every American who does not buy health insurance pay a penalty. By law, decisions have been taken away from patients, such as choosing a doctor, with other decisions being forced upon them. Did the people revolt?

No...

Commodities trading giant Vitol strikes deal to turn coal waste into oil, that could lower costs to $10 a barrel

Vitol and coal company Peabody are putting about £8million each into London-based start-up Arq fuels, which has discovered how to extract particles of hydrocarbons from waste at coal mines and convert them into a liquid that can be combined with fuel or crude oil.

The coal industry throws away more than a billion tons of waste each year, equivalent to about 5million barrels of oil per day.

As well as investing in Arq, Vitol will blend the result, called Arq Fuel, into its products.

The first Arq Fuel is due to be available in 2019.

Witnesses warned about ASBESTOS after massive steam pipe explosion in rush hour Manhattan leaves a gaping CRATER in the middle of Fifth Avenue

A steam pipe exploded in Manhattan on Thursday morning as millions of commuters made their way to work, leaving an enormous hole on Fifth Avenue and sparking concerns of asbestos exposure.

The blast happened at 6.40am between 21st and 22nd street outside the retailer Club Monaco. It was first categorized as a 2 alarm incident but it rose to being a 3 alarm within an hour of the explosion.

There were no injuries as a result of the blast but it sent dirty water, steam and smoke spewing into the air and pouring down the busy street.

Con Edison, which looks after the steam pipe system across New York City, is now testing the air and steam for asbestos or other contaminant and anyone who may have been exposed is being told to shower immediately and bag their clothing.

The FDNY has set up a red decontamination tent in the area to hose down anyone who was showered with debris.

They expect to know whether there is asbestos in the air by noon.

Gardasil Vaccine in Denmark: Serious Adverse Reactions Now Number 1 in 500 Girls

Health Rapporteur Liselott Blixt of the Danish People’s Party was one of the people who led the effort to get the HPV vaccine Gardasil introduced in Denmark in 2008. She now wants it abolished. She states:

The fact that we have so many, perhaps up to 5,000 young women who suddenly become so sick must have the consequence that we simply stop the vaccine. I was the first who said a big ‘yes’ to it, but now I will also be the first to abolish it, because we politicians must take responsibility for ensuring that we have adopted it. Not least in light of the fact that we do not actually have any treatment options to offer the most sick.

Common blood pressure drug banned over fears it raises cancer risk: US regulators recall Chinese product which may have been contaminated since 2012

An investigation has shown that, due to a change in manufacturing techniques, an organic chemical called N-Nitrosodimethylamine - also used in rocket fuel - has trickled into the supply.

Long-term exposure is known to drastically increase the risk of cancer, as well as inducing symptoms like headaches and fevers.

The move by the US Food and Drug Administration comes two weeks after the UK recalled the drug, valsartan, which has been widely prescribed across the world for 15 years.

HEALTH INSURERS ARE VACUUMING UP DETAILS ABOUT YOU — AND IT COULD RAISE YOUR RATES

To an outsider, the fancy booths at last month’s health insurance industry gathering in San Diego aren’t very compelling. A handful of companies pitching “lifestyle” data and salespeople touting jargony phrases like “social determinants of health.” But dig deeper and the implications of what they’re selling might give many patients pause: A future in which everything you do — the things you buy, the food you eat, the time you spend watching TV — may help determine how much you pay for health insurance.

Newly-discovered plastic that HEALS cracks when exposed to certain light could extend the life cycle of satellites

A new type of plastic that can heal itself when damaged could mean satellites will be able to stay in orbit for longer, scientists have revealed.

The polymer heals cracks when exposed to certain light by converting from a rigid structure to a much softer, malleable substance.

Under certain conditions, the plastic used by researchers could become up to ten times softer and more dynamic.

Such plastics could also be used to coat vehicles on Earth, including cars, giving them the ability to heal after being involved in crashes.

Rock fissure sparks URGENT closure at Grand Teton National Park, just 60 miles from Yellowstone supervolcano

A fissure has opened up in Grand Teton National Park just 60 miles (100km) from the Yellowstone volcano, prompting officials to immediately close the area.

Experts have detected expanding cracks in the rock buttress, which is being closely monitored by geologists for movement.

It is not known how the fissure opened but the area, which sits over the Yellowstone supervolcano, has been urgently shut down due to 'elevated potential for rockfall'.

While it hasn't blown its top for more than 600,000 years, scientists are working to better understand Yellowstone in the hopes of predicting the next eruption.

How the sun's rotation affects lightning activity: Records dating back to the 1700s reveal new clues on the nature of storms

Researchers in Japan have turned to detailed logs kept by farm families and government officials hundreds of years ago, looking for mentions of thunder and lightning events.

The study shows this activity lined up with the time it takes sunspots to make a complete rotation, suggesting the cycle plays a ‘very important role,’ in daily weather.

‘It is well known that long-term – centennial to millennial-scale – variations of solar activity influences terrestrial climate,’ said Hiroko Miyahara, first author on the paper and an associate professor of Humanities and Sciences/Museum Careers.

‘However, it is not well established whether the sun influences the daily or monthly weather.’

In the race for world dominance in advanced technology, Chinese artificial intelligence is also taking on its own doctors, with a new system claiming to diagnose brain tumors faster and more accurately than human physicians.

BioMind, developed by Beijing’s Tiantan Hospital and its AI research center for neurological disorders, has told Chinese media that the new system has correctly diagnosed 87 percent of 225 cases in only 15 minutes. That compares to only a 66-percent accuracy rate for the same by a team of 15 senior physicians.

WATTS: ANOTHER FLINT?

The whole world knows the story of Flint by now. The famously depressed city in Michigan, where the majority of residents are African American, shifted its drinking-water source to a local river in 2014 in order to save money. Residents’ complaints about the terrible-smelling murky water that began spewing from their taps were largely ignored. As it turned out, they were being poisoned by lead contamination from years of industrial-waste dumping. Eventually, a state of emergency was declared.

But Flint is not alone. Across the country, for example, there’s another impoverished community you might have heard of — this one near the golden shores of Southern California. Watts, located on a mere 2.1 square miles in South Central Los Angeles, isn’t suffering the immediate effects observed in Flint. Not yet. But the causes of pollution recently detected under a 58-year-old housing project — and the reluctance of officials to address the situation — are much the same.

Humans reached North America 6,500 years EARLIER than first thought: Discovery of 150,000 'unique' stone tools suggest humans already lived on the continent 20,000 years ago

For decades, researchers believed early humans first settled in the Western Hemisphere around 13,500 years ago.

However, the discovery of 150,000 'unique' stone tools northwest of Austin, Texas, now suggests humans were living on the continent as far back as 20,000 years ago.

The latest research pushes back the earliest human habitation of North America back by almost 6,500 years.

It also suggests the previously-discovered 'Clovis artefacts' were not the first prehistoric tools on the continent.

NZ scientist calls out 'unnecessary' US skeleton study

A New Zealand scientist has joined criticism of a US analysis of human remains that had become famous for their alien-like appearance.

A skeleton, nicknamed Ata, was discovered more than a decade ago in an abandoned town in the Atacama Desert of Chile, and began drawing headlines after it found a permanent home in Spain.

That owed to its angular, elongated skull and sunken, slanted eye sockets - something the internet predictably suggested could be other-worldly.

Misguided conspiracy theorists went as far as claiming Ata was evidence of a UFO cover-up.

In fact, analysis of the six-inch specimen pointed to a mother's tragedy in the recent past.

Official Canadian Data Show That There Is More Autism in Regions Where Vaccine Coverage Is Highest

Rates of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) continue to soar worldwide, with average prevalence estimated to be around 1.5% in developed countries. This estimate appears to be spot-on for Canada, which reported in March 2018 that autism (as of 2015) affected 1 in 66 children and youth (1.52%). These numbers place Canada among the “top ten” for autism among North American, European and Asian countries.

New Fissure Near Yellowstone Supervolcano Causes Teton National Park Closure

A 100-foot-long fissure near the Yellowstone supervolcano has prompted the closure of parts of Teton National Park. Coupled with the Steamboat geyser’s newly active status, fears of an eruption at the Yellowstone caldera are increasing.

Teton National Park has issued a statement regarding the newly opened up fissure, according to WoodTV. “The Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point areas are currently closed due to elevated potential for rockfall. The area was closed to protect human safety on July 10 after expanding cracks in a rock buttress were detected. It is unknown how long the closure will be in effect. Geologists are monitoring the buttress for movement and have initiated a risk assessment for the area.”

Robert Kennedy Jr. launches first lawsuit of thousands against Monsanto alleging herbicide Roundup causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma

Environmental attorney Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has filed the first of what he termed “several thousand” lawsuits against agri-giant Monsanto, alleging that its widely-used herbicide Roundup causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Jurors in San Francisco heard hours of scientific data about the chemical’s link to the disease, which has a high survival rate after five years, but which can cause others to become terminally ill.

Kennedy, who is also the chairman of the World Mercury Project, said in a recent interview with Del Bigtree, host of The HighWire show, said gardeners, agricultural workers, farmers and others who are exposed regularly to Roundup are most at risk.

US government exposed: for 30 years, it broke the law on vaccine safety Jul16

For 30 years, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) broke the law regarding vaccine safety, and no one noticed or cared.

Then two men came along and discovered the scandal: Robert F Kennedy, Jr. (twitter), head of the World Mercury Project, and Del Bigtree (twitter 1, twitter 2, FB, web), the producer of the film Vaxxed. They filed papers in court, and they won their case.

Here is the issue in a nutshell: In 1986, a law, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, was passed. It insanely excused vaccine makers from legal liability stemming from unsafe vaccines and the injuries they cause. Buried in the law was a provision ordering the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to update Congress, every two years, on its efforts to improve vaccine safety.

Kennedy and Bigtree thought it would be very interesting to read these HHS reports—all 16 of them. So they filed a Freedom of Information Act request, and then…nothing. No replies.

Scientists Think NASA Caused A Mars ‘Proof Of Life’ Anomaly 40 Years Ago

To conduct the study, published in the Journal of Geophysical Research on June 20, the team reviewed the data from Viking landers to check if anything was overlooked. After all, the team also strongly believed that all terrestrial living things should contain organic material, meaning the Viking landers should have discovered something in 1976.

In 2008, the spacecraft Phoenix found a salt in the Martian soil. This salt, called perchlorate, is rare on Earth but is used to make fireworks because it explodes when exposed to high temperatures.

In 2014, Mars Curiosity found organic molecules on Mars. One of the materials discovered was chlorobenzene: a molecule that is created when carbon materials are burned with perchlorate.

Company Hikes Price Of "Cadillac" Ambien Nasal Spray By 800% As Drug Companies Defy Trump

While Pfizer and several drugmakers have loudly touted their decision to roll back some price hikes on popular drugs following pressure from President Trump and the rollout of a new California law designed to discourage drug companies from raising prices, others have continued hiking prices of thousands of drugs. According to Raymond James & Associates drug companies have raised prices 3,653 times on 1,045 different drugs so far this year (drug companies often do one round of price hikes in January and another in the early summer). And according to the Wall Street Journal, the biggest price increases have been reserved for so-called "Cadillac" drugs like a new spray form of the sleeping medication Ambien.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Drug companies do this

a: Because they can, and

b: Drug companies spend a lot of money on Presidential campaigns, so they know that the final "slap", once they have raised prices through the roof, will generally be quite mild.

An Associated Press investigation finds that even as Hollywood moguls, elite journalists and politicians have been pushed out of their jobs or resigned amid allegations of sexual misconduct, the world of medicine is more forgiving.

Even when doctors are disciplined, their punishment often consists of a short suspension paired with therapy that treats sexually abusive behavior as a symptom of an illness or addiction.

The investigation finds that decades of complaints that the physician disciplinary system is too lenient have led to little change in the practices of state medical boards.

911: The impossible Cell Phone calls

I chat to Frederick C. Blackburn (also known as blackbird9) who studied engineering and then became an electrical engineer and had a career in IT. He had a Top Secret clearance in the USA. He gave lectures to: Military and Naval Intelligence personnel as well as NSA, CIA and FBI personnel about cell phone and other technology.

We discuss his specialist knowledge with regard to cell phones and why the cell phone technology of 911 did not allow cell phone calls to be received from people in planes. On 911 there were between 15-40 alleged cell phone calls from people on aircraft before the planes crashed into the Twin Towers or elsewhere. Frederick explains why those phone calls were impossible. 911 changed his life because he realised immediately that the collapsing towers as well as the cell phone calls were utterly impossible.

Safety fears over revolutionary gene-editing tool: Crispr causes unwanted mutations in DNA that may prove dangerous and have been 'seriously underestimated', warn researchers

Scientists have warned the genetic damage caused by the Crispr/Cas9 technology - known as Crispr - have been 'seriously underestimated before now'.

They have uncovered evidence the gene-editing tool causes unwanted mutations that may prove dangerous - and is 'much less safe' than once thought.

Critics fear Crispr may be used to 'snip' damaging genes from children before they are born, such as those that cause Huntington's disease or blindness.

Others remain concerned it could create 'designer babies' by allowing parents to choose their hair colour, height or even traits such as intelligence.

The study adds to the worries, as scientists found Crispr can introduce hundreds of potentially harmful mutations that standard tests may not spot.

Some trials have made similar findings, with a study last month claiming the tool could cause cancer by making cells less able to repair DNA damage.

WHO recognises 'compulsive sexual behaviour' as mental disorder

The World Health Organization has recognised "compulsive sexual behaviour" as a mental disorder, but said Saturday it remained unclear if it was an addiction on a par with gambling or drug abuse.

The contentious term "sex addiction" has been around for decades but experts disagree over whether the condition exists.

In the latest update of its catalogue of diseases and injuries around the world, the WHO takes a step towards legitimising the concept, by acknowledging "compulsive sexual behaviour disorder", or CSBD, as a mental illness.

But the UN health body stops short of lumping the condition together with addictive behaviours like substance abuse or gambling, insisting more research is needed before describing the disorder as an addiction.
