Monsanto’s Roundup raises cancer risk 41%, EPA-linked scientists find

Monsanto’s Roundup raises the risk of certain cancers in heavily-exposed individuals by an eye-popping 41 percent, according to a study by former EPA advisors that may influence a coming wave of legal actions against the company.

Exposure to glyphosate-based herbicides like Roundup dramatically increases a person’s risk of developing non-Hodgkins lymphoma, a new review of studies found, adding to the mounting pile of evidence against Monsanto’s popular weed killer, now owned by Bayer. The meta-analysis, published in Mutation Research, analyzed the results of six earlier studies to find individuals with heavy exposure to the herbicide had a 41 percent higher risk of developing non-Hodgkins lymphoma than those not exposed.

Mom sues NY school district for ejecting unvaccinated teens: School is ‘Asking me to go against everything I believe in’

New York mother Marina Williams has taken the Orchard Park School District to court after her two children were removed from class because their vaccines were not up to date. According to Williams, her 13 and 15-year-olds are exempt from vaccinations for religious reasons. They have now been out of school for two months since moving from West Seneca to Orchard Park, a Buffalo suburb, in October. Although her children were granted a religious exemption when they attended West Seneca School District for some reason Orchard Park has denied it.

Williams said her religion prohibits putting foreign substances into the body (including drugs, alcohol, and vaccines) and that The Orchard Park school system is essentially asking her to go against her faith and everything she believes in.

The deeper reason for drug ads on television by Jon Rappoport

Have you ever heard of these drugs? Otezla, Xeljanz, Namzaric, Keytruda, Breo, Cosentyz? Not likely. If you have, do you know what conditions they treat? Highly unlikely. But there they are, splashed in commercials.

Why? Who is going to remember to ask their doctor whether these and other obscure meds are right for them?

What’s going on here?

The answer is: IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT DRUGS ARE BEING ADVERTISED.

If Pharma can pay enough TOTAL money for ads, for ALL drugs, and dominate the allotted TV time for commercials, it can control the news—and that is exactly what it wants to do.

USDA rules that 'pink slime' can officially be called ground beef

Lean Finely Textured Beef, dubbed 'pink slime', has been officially classified as 'ground beef' by the USDA.

On December 21, 2018, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service reclassified the the controversial pink slime as simply ground beef.

Pink slime is a food additive made from beef trimmings exposed to ammonia gas that in 2012 was reported to be found in 70 per cent of American burgers.

When the news of the additive first broke in 2012, McDonald's pledged to stop using it and many campaigned against the substance, which led to a $1.9billion lawsuit against ABC News for reporting about South Dakota-based Beef Products Inc's beef.

ZERO U.S. Measles Deaths in 10 Years, but Over 100 Measles Vaccine Deaths Reported

With the measles and measles vaccine debate reaching a near frenzy on the Internet, it is always nice to throw some cold hard facts on the firestorm currently raging in the measles debate.

So here are some easily verifiable facts regarding deaths associated with measles in the United States for the past 10 years, and deaths associated with measles vaccines during the same 10 year period.

First, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) keeps a weekly tally of disease outbreaks, including deaths. According to a statement made by Dr. Anne Schuchat, the director of CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, in an Associated Press story picked up by Fox News on April 25, 2014:

There has been no measles deaths (sic) reported in the U.S. since 2003 [1]

The weekly CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports (MMWR) since that date have not revealed any measles deaths either. (*See edit below.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Following the timeline of this article, there has been one reported death from measles in Washington state; a woman ... who had just received the measles vaccination.

$32,500 for CBD Oil?

If we don’t change a key FDA policy, that’s how much you may be forced to pay if you want to purchase CBD oil. Action Alert!

For years, consumers have benefitted from access to cheap, safe, and effective CBD oil supplements. But now the FDA says that CBD is a drug, not a supplement—a drug which will be sold for $32,500 a year. Legally the FDA could at any time remove all CBD supplements from the market, on its own volition, or if the drug company which holds drug market exclusivity requests FDA do so. Unless we change the rules, we may see a government-sponsored monopoly on CBD oil, and in the near future, additional monopolies on other cheap, safe, and effective supplements.

This is happening because of a back-channel that allows natural supplements to be turned into drugs by the FDA. It works like this: if a company is investigating a substance as a drug, FDA rules give the company market exclusivity on that substance—even if it is currently being sold as a supplement.

Woman dies months after doctors reportedly removed both of her healthy kidneys by mistake

A 73-year-old woman in Colorado died on Friday, nine months after doctors wrongly removed her kidneys. The surgery followed a mistaken diagnosis of cancer two months prior.

Prior to her death, Linda Woolley told Denver news station KDVR that her “life was totally changed” after she underwent the needless surgery in May, which doctors at the University of Colorado Hospital ordered after telling her in March that they’d found cancer in both of her kidneys based on pathology reports. But she later discovered that the reports actually showed “no evidence of malignancy” from results “consistent with a benign process.”

Woolley had been leading an active life before the surgery, riding horses and swimming in her free time. But the medical mix-up put an end to all that, leading the grandmother to undergo four-hour dialysis treatments three times a week.

FDA Admits That Government Is Recommending Untested, Unlicensed Vaccines for Pregnant Women

In response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, the FDA has admitted, for the first time, that government agencies, including the CDC, are recommending vaccines for pregnant women that have neither been licensed for pregnant mothers by FDA nor tested for safety in clinical trials. The lawsuit, filed by Children’s Health Defense (CHD) attorney, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on behalf of Informed Consent Action Network(ICAN), a vaccine safety advocacy group, sought all clinical trial data used by FDA to approve influenza vaccines for pregnant women.

Medical Expenses Contribute To Two-Thirds Of Bankruptcy Filings In U.S.

For many Americans, putting one’s health first can mean putting one’s financial status at risk. A study of bankruptcy filings in the United States showed that 66.5% were due, at least in part, to medical expenses.

The study, led by Dr. David Himmelstein, Distinguished Professor at the City University of New York’s (CUNY) Hunter College and Lecturer at Harvard Medical School, indicates that about 530,000 families each year are financially ruined by medical bills and sicknesses. It’s the first research of its kind to link medical expenses and bankruptcy since the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010.

“Unless you’re Bill Gates, you’re just one serious illness away from bankruptcy,” Himmelstein says in a release by the Physicians for a National Health Program. “For middle-class Americans, health insurance offers little protection. Most of us have policies with so many loopholes, copayments and deductibles that illness can put you in the poorhouse.”

Contract signings run roughly one or two months ahead of when the sales close and are reported as sales. The measure of pending home sales for December projects actual home sales in January and February. To that tune, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) said that its Pending Home Sales Index for December fell to the lowest level since April 2014:“It’s been dripping down, down, down,” NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun said in the interview. “Frustrating that the housing market is not recovering.”

Half Of Parents Worry Flu Shot Makes Children Sick, Third Believe It Doesn’t Work At All

Millions of parents in America have reservations about their child getting the flu shot, but it has nothing to do with developing autism. A recent survey shows that more than a half of parents believe their child can get the flu from the vaccine itself, while a third simply believes it doesn’t work.

The 2017 flu season was one of the most severe on record in the United States, with 180 child deaths blamed on influenza. The consensus in the medical community is that flu shots are safe for use in adults and children, and that — hands down — it is the best way to prevent infection and combat the spread of the virus.

But this survey, conducted by medical researchers at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, shows that many parents still feel nervous about the vaccine despite its overwhelming support by doctors.

The Vaccination Debate

Today we investigate one of the biggest medical controversies of our time: vaccines. There’s little dispute about this much-- vaccines save many lives, and rarely, they injure or kill. A special federal vaccine court has paid out billions for injuries from brain damage to death. But not for the form of brain injury we call autism. Now—we have remarkable new information: a respected pro-vaccine medical expert used by the federal government to debunk the vaccine-autism link, says vaccines can cause autism after all. He claims he told that to government officials long ago, but they kept it secret.

Yates Hazlehurst was born February 11, 2000. Everything was normal, according to his medical records, until he suffered a severe reaction to vaccinations. Rolf Hazlehurst is Yates’ dad.

Rolf Hazlehurst: And at first, I didn't believe it. I did not think that, I did not believe that vaccines could cause autism. I didn't believe it.

Apple iPhone shipments plunge in China with Huawei gaining ground against wider industry slump

Huawei racks up 23 per cent gain in shipments in fourth quarter against 9.7 per cent slump in industry shipments

Apple and Xiaomi have both encountered a slump in shipments in China in the December quarter, the worst performers among the top five vendors in the country amid an overall shrinking of demand in the world’s largest smartphone market.

Apple reported a 19.9 per cent decline in shipments in China in the fourth quarter, but climbed one place to No 4 in smartphone shipments after Xiaomi did even worse, tumbling 34.9 per cent during the same period, according to a report by research firm IDC published on Monday. Overall industry shipments for China fell 9.7 per cent to 103 million units.

Bucking the trend, Huawei Technologies registered a 23.3 per cent gain, while second- and third-placed Oppo and Vivo eked out modest gains of 1.5 per cent and 3.1 per cent, respectively.

Venezuela moves to replace US executives on Citgo board

Venezuela's state-run oil company Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) is taking steps to remove at least two American executives from the board of directors of its United States's refining subsidiary, Citgo Petroleum Corp, according to people close to the matter.

Citgo is facing unprecedented challenges to its finances and management after the US government last week imposed tough sanctions on PDVSA designed to prevent oil revenue from going to leftist President Nicolas Maduro.

The US and dozens of other nations have refused to recognise Maduro, viewing his re-election last year to another six-year term as fraudulent.

In 60 Seconds, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Exposes How Big Pharma Grifts US Taxpayers

Prescription drug prices in the United States are insane. It’s such an endemic problem that both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump have vowed to address it, albeit in different ways. And as illustrated by Congressional superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York), those drug prices are paired with cheating taxpayers on research investments.

Ocasio-Cortez likened taxpayers to an early investor in pharmaceutical research through grants from the National Institutes of Health.

Aaron Kesselheim, associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, explained responded to that comparison by explaining the NIH does not receive any licensing fees that would act as a “return” on that investment. Instead, the product of NIH research is just handed off to for-profit companies that then produce high-profit prescription medicine.

'It's immoral exploitation': Bernie Sanders rips into pharmaceutical company that now charges $375k for a drug that was FREE for years

Synthetic Shock – From Dirty Electricity to 5G

We are by nature electric; but the man-made ‘synthetic’ variety, that apes nature’s version, is not helping us to live a full and healthy life, but is rather stultifying that condition. In fact Edison, Tesla et al. were not really doing the world a favour when they invented and put to use ‘synthetic electricity’ on this planet.

Pharma drug cartel just changed the definition of “high blood pressure” to trick HALF of U.S. adults into “treatment” with high-profit prescription drugs

The pharma drug cartel has become not just a total joke to medicine and science, but increasingly a threat to the health and safety of the American people. In the latest medical hoax to generate profit from the mass medication of nearly everyone, the American Heart Association — a quack medicine front group for the pharmaceutical industry — announced a new definition of “high blood pressure” that means half of U.S. adults suddenly have a “disease” requiring “treatment” with high-profit pharmaceuticals.

Addicted to profit? Oxycontin dynasty pushed high doses of addictive painkiller as sales earned them $4BILLION - and wanted to cash in on NARCAN while 235,000 died of overdoses, claims lawsuit

Oxycontin dynasty the Sacklers allegedly pushed high doses of the painkiller and hoped to cash in on anti-overdose drug NARCAN while 235,000 Americans died from the opoid epidemic, according to an unredacted complaint filed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The lawsuit claims that Purdue Pharma and members of the Sackler family knew that patients on higher dosages of OxyContin for long periods were at an increased risk of serious side effects, including addiction, yet they continued to promote the high doses as they yielded the most profit.

A copy of the filing obtained by DailyMail.com shows that from 2008 to 2016, the Sackler family added $4.2 billion to their already massive fortune in profits derived just from the sale of prescription opioids.

Government to Facebook Pipeline Reveals a Corrupt Mix of Social Media and the State

It is a telltale sign of a corrupt industry or company when they create a revolving door between themselves and the state. Just like Monsanto has former employees on the Supreme Court and Pharmaceutical industry insiders move back and forth from the FDA to their companies, we found that Facebook is doing the same thing. -- So there you have it. Facebook, who claims to be a private entity, is quite literally made up of and advised by dozens of members of government. We’re ready for a change, are you?

The End is Near for Monsanto as Lawyers Everywhere Gear Up for Massive Class Action

In August of 2018 stock prices for Bayer, the company that now owns Monsanto, took a nosedive after a California judge awarded defendant DeWayne Johnson $289 million in damages. Bayer is facing a potential $800 billion in settlements for thousands of other similar cases pending against Monsanto. Since then, Bayer’s stock has continued to fall significantly.

TV news anchor announces over 90 out of 124 cases of measles in NY “epidemic” are vaccinated

When we report on what a news anchor states or a news source says, it’s always risky. Hence the reason we always put in the headline we are quoting from; you never know, things could change- it’s a chance all journalists take.

Case in point: we couldn’t believe our eyes today when the famous TV anchor, who used to be with CNN then CBS and now has a show on ABC to millions, posted about this story. That’s right, two-time, Emmy Award-winning Sharyl Attkisson posted this report.

Then we saw one of the oldest vaccine non-profits in the country, the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), from Washington, DC share this news as well. It had nearly 700 likes in a few minutes (it appears they shared it from the famous news anchor’s page). So we did an article about her reporting this news on her page and it went viral (no pun intended).

Robert F. Kennedy Jr Explains How Big Pharma Completely Owns Congress

Those of you who have been involved in the past in the battle to protect our children from poorly made vaccines or toxic chemicals in our food or in our water know the power of these industries and how they’ve undermined every institution in our democracy that is supposed to protect little children from powerful, greedy corporations. Even the pharmaceutical companies have been able to purchase congress. They’re the largest lobbying entity in Washington D.C.. They have more lobbyists in Washington D.C. than there are congressman and senators combined. They give twice to congress what the next largest lobbying entity is, which is oil and gas… Imagine the power they exercise over both republicans and democrats. They’ve captured them (our regulatory agencies) and turned them into sock puppets. They’ve compromised the press… and they destroy the publications that publish real science. (Robert F. Kennedy Jr, from the video below)

Childhood Vaccination Schedules Are Completely Out of Control and Dangerous!

Up, up and away!

This pretty much describes the CDC Childhood Immunization Schedule since 1950.

On February 1, 2016, the insanity continued as the CDC hiked the childhood immunization schedule even further by adding another 3 vaccinations and lowering the age for the first HPV jab (Gardasil) to 9 years old. The total is now an outrageous 74 doses (53 injections) by age 17, an increase of 24X since 1950.

Have our children become pin cushions of profit for the drug companies? Here’s the breakdown. You decide.

In 1950, there were 3 childhood vaccines typically given when a child entered school.

In 1983, there were 10 recommended vaccines by the age of 6 years old (24 doses, 7 injections, 4 oral doses for polio).

In 2010, the CDC vax schedule totaled 68 doses with more than half given by the time a child was only a year and a half old.

In 2016, the schedule has increased to 74 doses by age 17 with 53 injections and 3 oral doses of rotavirus.
