Peanut Allergy Associated With Vaccinations Leads To Profit For Patch-Peddling Pharmaceutical Company

A French pharmaceutical company is hoping to reap massive profits from a new drug patch that it says treats a common food allergy caused by vaccines. The DBV Technologies SA Viaskin Peanut patch for peanut allergy currently holds a market value of $1 billion, according to reports, which represents yet another major profit stream for an industry that creates many of the diseases it treats.

Use of Term “FDA” Should Always Trigger a Warning

By Jon Rappoport

“In 1957, the FDA burned all the books of dissident physician Wilhelm Reich, M.D., smashed his laboratory equipment with axes, and threw him in jail, where he died.”—Robert Anton Wilson, High Times, March 2001.

Unless you’ve been living in cave on a remote mountain, you know the FDA has been coming down harder on nutritional companies that publish health claims for their products. Such claims trigger investigations and harassment.

But you see, this arrangement is backwards.

The use of the term “FDA” should be the trigger for immediate investigation, whenever it appears. For example, “The FDA has ruled (name of drug) is safe and effective.” Boom. Probe.

Why? Obviously, the FDA is a rogue criminal organization, which is guilty of massive RICO felonies. That’s why...

Chemical Contamination Leaves 100,000 Alabama Residents Without Drinking Water

As the Flint water crisis has shown us, sometimes the quality of America’s water infrastructure is not what you’d expect in a developed nation. However, the problems with our tap water are not just found in a few impoverished municipalities. In fact, dangerous chemicals and pathogens can be found in faucets all over America.

Case in point, the West Morgan-East Lawrence Water Authority in Alabama just advised 100,000 of their customers to stop using their tap water for drinking or cooking. According to the general manager of the Water Authority, who spoke at a press conference on Friday, “I recommend that all our customers do not drink our water, until we are able to bring the temporary system our engineer is designing online.” That includes water that has been boiled or cleaned with Brita-style filters, neither of which can remove the contaminants.

New fruit-flavored ADHD drug latest ploy to get our kids hooked

It’s chewable, fruit-flavored and OK’d for children as young as six.

And experts are calling it a recipe for disaster.

I’m talking about Adzenys, the latest attempt by Big Pharma to get young kids hooked on ADHD meds.

The company behind Adzenys is getting ready to roll it out to thousands of doctors across the country.

But before Adzenys shows up at your pediatrician’s office, there are some serious risks that every parent and grandparent needs to know about.

And one of those risks includes sudden death.

Offbeat: Men raid vegan café, pelt patrons with meat

In Georgia – the country, not the state – men raided a vegan café and pelted patrons with meat. "Some of them," the story says, " . . . were wearing sausage necklaces," which seems to be a bold and possibly odoriferous, bacteria-prone fashion choice. Then a brawl broke out and the assailants escaped into the night. The whole episode, the café owners say, shows just how intolerant people are. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, owners of a vegan café say they've been getting death threats since they decided to start eating meat again. Talk about your food fights.

"One of the most intriguing might-have-beens in American History"

Jefferson's Tardy Constitution
by Jack Lynch

Americans are so accustomed to associating Thomas Jefferson with the nation's founding documents that they easily overlook that he played no hands-on role in composing the United States Constitution.

He recorded his first impressions November 13, 1787, in a letter to William S. Smith: "There are very good articles in it: & very bad. I do not know which preponderate."

Disturbing for Jefferson was "the abandonment in every instance of the necessity of rotation in office." Experience had convinced him that, without term limits, every elected official will be "an officer for life." That Constitution's neglect of this problem was for him a nearly fatal flaw.

On World Environment Day, Profiting From Death, Devastation And Destruction Is The Norm

The scaly anteater is considered to be the most trafficked mammal on earth. Over a million of these have been taken from the wild in the past decade alone. The illegal trade in live apes, including chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans, is also rife, and many other species across the planet are being trafficked. It is estimated that rhino poaching in South Africa increased by as much as 8,000% between 2007 and 2014. For every live animal illegally taken from the wild, there are many more killed during capture and transport.

US Taxpayers Forced to Pay $3 Billion for Damages in Vaccine Lawsuits — Not the Drug Companies

Why You Should Avoid Palm Oil Like The Plague

Waking Times Media

Palm oil is used in many things from chips and baked goods to shampoo and cleaning products to an oil used for cooking. It is the most widely used vegetable oil in the world. It even sounds healthier because it’s different from GMO vegetable oil like canola. It comes from a palm fruit grown on an African oil palm tree so what could be unhealthy, harmful, or unsustainable about that? Well it’s contributing to the death of thousands of orangutans and many other animals who live in the forests. Not to mention, it’s affecting the indigenous people and the environment

Who Runs Washington? The Long Reach of Big Pharma

Houston, We Have a Glyphosate Problem

By Makia Freeman

We all have a massive glyphosate problem on our hands, even if you have eaten 100% organic food all your life. The pesticide chemical glyphosate, Monsanto’s gift to mankind, is totally out of control – not just in the US, but also in Europe, Australia and many other nations that use it. Glyphosate is almost constantly in the news, as study after study reveal just how widespread, toxic and carcinogenic it is. It’s the most used pesticide in the world. Meanwhile, the US, EU, UN and others all argue over how this lethal chemical killer should be classified and labeled – despite the fact it’s showing up in people’s urine, breast milk and blood (yes – even those avoiding GMOs), and despite the fact that it has been found to be, in the words of an MIT scientist, “the most destructive chemical in our environment.”...

Saudis rooting for Clinton to win White House: Oil analyst

“It is no secret that the Saudis and other [Persian] Gulf Sunni powers are rooting for Mrs. Clinton,” Bob McNally, president of Washington-based consulting firm Rapidan Group, told CNBC from Vienna on Thursday.

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) holds its semiannual meeting Thursday in Vienna, but is unlikely to announce any strategy changes.

McNally said that there is “a lot of concern and anxiety” about what a Donald Trump presidency would mean for the oil market.

Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, has questioned the protective nature of the US relationship with Saudi Arabia.

He has suggested that the United States should consider ditching Riyadh because Washington is increasingly getting less dependent on overseas oil.

Countering Pro-GMO Deceptions In The British Press

In his recent piece for The Times newspaper in the UK, Viscount Matt Ridley argues that a new report from the American National Academies of Sciences (NAS) leaves no room for doubt that genetically engineered crops are as safe or safer, and are certainly better for the environment, than conventionally bred crops.

Ridley adheres to the belief that GM technology reduces insecticide use and speculates that future GM crops will be even safer, better for the environment and better for human health. He says that it is a disgrace that Greenpeace still campaigns against Golden Rice, a vitamin-enhanced variety that its backers claim could save hundreds of thousands of lives a year.

STUDY: Ultra-low doses of Monsanto's Roundup cause massive gene alterations in lab rats, leading to other health problems

New research shows that ultra-low dose exposure to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup, causes massive gene alterations in lab rats, according to a study published in the journal Environmental Health.

The report is the first in a series of studies observing the effects ultra-low doses of glyphosate have on gene expression profiles and the subsequent epigenetic changes, or changes that become inherited patterns of gene function, which can lead to other health problems down the road.

CDC forced to release documents showing they Knew Vaccine Preservative Causes Autism

Dr. Hooker, a PhD scientist, worked with two members of Congress to craft the letter to the CDC that recently resulted in his obtaining long-awaited data from the CDC, the significance of which is historic. According to Hooker, the data on over 400,000 infants born between 1991 and 1997, which was analyzed by CDC epidemiologist Thomas Verstraeten, MD, "proves unequivocally that in 2000, CDC officials were informed internally of the very high risk of autism, non-organic sleep disorder and speech disorder associated with Thimerosal exposure."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Further on down the article reveals how vaccine makers, although asked to eliminate Thimerosal from their products, refused to do so.

California Assembly Passes “Right to Try” Act Rejecting Some FDA Restrictions on Terminally-Ill

A massive bipartisan coalition of 29 Assembly members introduced Assembly Bill 1668 (AB1668) on Jan. 15. The legislation would give terminally ill patients access to medicines not yet given final approval for use by the FDA.

The Senate Ways and Means Committee created Senate Bill 2286 (S.2286) to incorporate several measures relating to agriculture. It replaced S.2171, which was created by a joint committee on Environment Natural Resources and Agriculture. The bill number has changed several times.

The Unique Risks Of GM Crops: Science Trumps PR, Fraud And Smear Campaigns

The purpose of this piece is to draw readers’ attention to an important chapter from a document by Aruna Rodrigues that discusses the unique risks associated with GM crops. Contrary to what supporters of GM often claim, it shows that criticisms of this technology are based on credible concerns, sound logic and solid science.

However, some background information and context might first be useful to indicate that, while critics rely on science, the pro-GMO lobby is mired in duplicity and engages in the debasement of science.

What Big Pharma Does Not Want You To Know About The Opioid Epidemic

The prescription opioid epidemic is not new. It began when Pharma rolled out and aggressively marketed time-released opioids like Oxycontin, driving “pill mills” that distributed as many as 9 million Oxys in a six-month span. What is new is the media finally calling Pharma out on the many cagey ways it got people hooked on opioids and heroin (and continues to do so), how the FDA unabashedly helps Pharma with shocking new approvals, and how people in real pain, especially the poor and African Americans, are some of the hidden victims of the epidemic. When all the reports are in, the Pharma-driven opioid epidemic may be one of the biggest and deadliest cons in recent history.

The impact isn't going to be limited just to customers buying new Samsung televisions, either, as the company reportedly plans to use software updates to retroactively bring the ads to older models that people already have in their homes.

Utility Smart Meters – A Probable Terrorist Connection Unveiled?

Mainstream Media and Government Remain Silent as Activists From All Over the US Deliver Aid to Flint

Lead contaminates the water in Flint, Michigan, and as you’ve probably heard, the state government in conjunction with emergency managers needlessly endangered the lives of every resident in the city by poisoning its water supply with toxic lead — for a savings amounting to about $80 to $100 per day. And while the Flint Water Crisis has largely disappeared from headlines in both mainstream and alternative media, residents are no closer to receiving the most basic human right with any consistency.

In fact, the situation, in many ways, continues to worsen as the government not only originally failed to keep informed residents of the economically-depressed city what’s being done to solve their crisis, but failed to provide adequate supply for their daily lives.

Pharmacist Speaks Out: Get Off Prescription Drugs, Avoid Vaccines

Margaret is a pharmacist. With a Pharmacy (PharmD) degree, and over two decades working in the field of pharmacy, she’s seen firsthand how “guideline-driven” medicine has artificially forced every patient into the same clinical box, thereby hooking them on drugs. The result is that “Doctors don’t THINK anymore — they just do what they’re told, which is to put people on meds. So many people in medicine (doctors, nurses, pharmacists) don’t really question anything,” says Margaret. “They’re so busy that they just do what the ‘guidelines’ say to do, rather than look at individuals and what makes sense.”

A former employee of a major pharmaceutical company, Margaret left her job so she could spend more time with her family. At the time, she questioned her former employer’s “huge marketing budget” and now believes the marketing of drugs to the general public — along with guidelines-driven medicine — needs to stop.

Experts Warn How Artificial Sweeteners Cause Diabetes

By Brandon Turbeville

According to a new study, research is increasingly demonstrating what many natural health advocates and critics of artificial sweeteners have been saying for years. That sugar replacements like sucralose, aspartame, and saccharin are actually causing diabetes as opposed to preventing it.

While the medical industry continues to promote artificial sweeteners as a healthy alternative to sugar, and while major food corporations insert these alternatives into food products unnecessarily, research by Professor Jennifer Kuk of York University in Toronto suggests that artificial sweeteners may actually be responsible for increased levels of type 2 diabetes and that people who consume them may have worse glucose management...

CDC forced to reveal documents proving Thimerosal vaccine preservative causes autism

Factually speaking, the CDC is a malicious, criminally-run anti-science quackery front group for the vaccine industry. As part of its criminal activity, it has long insisted that the vaccine preservative thimerosal is not tied to autism. But once-secret documents, now forced to be revealed by the CDC, prove the agency knew that thimerosal causes autism but deliberately hid that evidence from the public in exactly the same way the EPA hid the truth about lead poisoning of the public water supply in Flint, Michigan.

Why the Chicken Pox Vaccine Makes NO Sense

The chicken pox vaccine, formally known as the varicella vaccination, was added to the recommended childhood vaccination schedule in 1995. Prior to this vaccine’s creation, it was a common practice for families to expose children to others who had the chicken pox. The disease was considered a normal part of childhood and it was widely known that chicken pox in childhood posed little to no risk of serious harm. Risks associated with chicken pox are more common in adults and those with compromised immune systems.

Empathy loss: Tylenol makes you care less about other people’s pain – study

Drugs that feature acetaminophen, such as Tylenol, may be quite good at helping people get through aches and pains, but they might also make them less sensitive to the pain or suffering of others.

In a new study, researchers from Ohio State University found that individuals who took painkillers featuring acetaminophen – an ingredient found in popular over-the-counter drugs such as Tylenol, Sudafed, Vicks and hundreds of others – were less likely to empathize with other people’s pain than those who did not take the drug.

“These findings suggest other people’s pain doesn’t seem as big of a deal to you when you’ve taken acetaminophen,” Dominik Mischkowski of the National Institutes of Health, a co-author of the study, said in a statement. “Acetaminophen can reduce empathy as well as serve as a painkiller.”

Albuquerque, New Mexico Will NOT Be Adding Fluoride To Water Supply

By Derrick Broze

Albuquerque, New Mexico will continue to maintain a fluoride-free water supply after the local water authority voted to remove funding for water fluoridation for the fiscal year 2017.

On Wednesday May 18, the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority voted to remove proposed funding for water fluoridation from the utility’s 2017 budget. The Water Utility Authority had originally recommended spending $250,000 to add extra fluoride into the water supply to help the county reach federally recommended levels of fluoride. Bernalillo County’s supply is at 0.3 parts per million while the federal government recommends .7 parts per million.

Only weeks ago Hart Stebbins, a Bernalillo County commissioner, introduced a measure that would have required the water authority to add fluoride to the water supply to a level of 0.7 parts per million. However, on May 18, the board opted not to vote on the measure, effectively ending the bid for water fluoridation...

There is an absolutely amazing international revolt against the most deadly and most widely used weed killer in world agriculture–glyphosate. Those of you who have followed my earlier writings can detect my feeling of pessimism that mere “democratic” grass-roots protest, combined with a scientific assessment from an agency of WHO that glyphosate was a “probable carcinogen” would be enough to stop the pending, twice-postponed EU Commission renewal of the expiring license for glyphosate in the EU. It almost doesn’t matter at this point what the ultimate vote is when the next EU Commission glyphosate meeting is convened. The genie is out of the bottle. One of the world’s most important eugenics projects to maim and ultimately reduce human population is on the brink of being banned much as DDT decades ago.

The BlackRock Dilemma: To End Short-Termism, Reform CEO Pay

In April, Gretchen Morgenson boldly called out the hypocrisy of BlackRock pillorying corporate short-termism while the investment giant simultaneously approved more than 96 percent of executive pay packages last fiscal year. She also described one BlackRock investor’s intrepid campaign to better align the company’s supposed philosophy with its executive pay practices: Stephen Silberstein, a retired software company founder, wrote a shareholder proposal for reform, and BlackRock investors and shareholders in general (including anyone with a pension or college savings) should take heed.

Here’s Why You Should Never Use Aluminum Foil to Cook Your Food

By James Holbrooks

According to a study published by the International Journal of Electrochemical Science, you may want to think twice before wrapping your food in aluminum foil to cook it — because some of that foil will leach into your meal.

“Aluminum foil used in cooking provides an easy channel for the metal to enter the human body,” concludes the study, which examined the effect foil has on a variety of different foods when used to prepare them...

Sorry, But We’re About To Ruin Diet Soda For You

• This study http://www.livescience.com/35464-diet-soda-salt-increase-stroke-risk.html found that people who drank diet soda every day had a 61 percent higher risk of stroke and heart attack than those who drank none at all.

• And this one http://time.com/3746047/diet-soda-bad-belly-fat/ showed that older people who drank diet soda over nine years picked up about triple thewaist circumference and belly fat as their non-soda counterparts. (That’s the body circumference you least want to increase.)

• Overweight or obese people who drink diet sodas eat significantly more calories http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24432876 .

• Oh, and people who drink diet sodas are more apt to eat like crap http://www.livescience.com/52183-diet-soda-extra-calories.html .

• Diet soda tastes like aluminum foil. We have no science for that, but we stand by it.

FINRA Cracks Down On Annuity Sales

Earlier this month, MetLife Inc. (MET) broke a record, though not the type businesses hope for: The company settled allegations with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority for $25 million, the second-largest penalty the regulatory body has levied in its history.

What sort of allegations could generate such a hefty price tag? In MetLife’s case, the core of the problem was the way the company handled variable annuities. According to FINRA, MetLife’s sales force allegedly provided customers with incomplete or misleading information when encouraging them to replace their variable annuities with newer products. The insurer neither admitted nor denied wrongdoing in the settlement.

Variable annuities are complicated products, often pitched as a key component of a retirement plan.>>>

"Our Water, Our Future": Voters in Oregon Defeat Nestlé's Attempt to Privatize Their Water

In Hood River County, Oregon, voters recently passed a precedent-setting ballot initiative that will protect the community's water from industrial bottling operations. Organizers say they built a bipartisan campaign, resulting in nearly 70 percent of voters supporting the ban on commercial bottling in the county. Blue yard signs bearing the words "Yes on 14-55: Our Water, Our Future" dotted lawns throughout Hood River County, Oregon, in the run-up to the primary election held on May 17. Just as many of these signs appeared to share a lawn with a Cruz or Trump yard sign as with a Clinton or Sanders sign. The issue that brought conservatives and progressives together in this way was clear-cut: keeping Nestlé Waters North America from building a water bottling plant and extracting over 118 million gallons annually from a spring in a small, rural community 45 miles east of Portland.

Glyphosate testing in Portugal detects highest levels ever recorded in people with no professional exposure

Worldwide, glyphosate contamination is rampant. Around 650,000 tons of the chemical, the primary ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup, were applied globally in 2011. Unsurprisingly, the widely used weed killer is in our water supplies, soil and conventionally grown crops. Now, thanks to independent testing, we're beginning to understand how glyphosate, a probable carcinogen, accumulates in people.

Testing conducted by the Portuguese No GMO Coalition and the Detox Project is the latest to discover the presence of glyphosate in human urine. However, their results are unique in that they detected substantially higher levels of the weed killer than any other tests performed in Europe in people with no professional exposure to glyphosate.

So. California Hospital on hot seat

Hospital in Secret Video Drama Offers Apology

A large Southern California hospital is now on the hot seat for releasing video clips of women undergoing obstetric surgery to an outside attorney, an error it said constituted a breach of medical privacy and has led to state and federal breach notification.

"We are very sorry that this error occurred and that the privacy of these patients was breached," said the statement from Sharp Grossmont Hospital, a 528-bed facility located just east of downtown San Diego, part of the network of Sharp's five hospital system and the second largest hospital in San Diego County.

The hospital said it mistakenly released the clips to Duane Admire, the lawyer defending Adam Dorin, MD, an anesthesiologist whom the hospital has accused of stealing propofol and who is now facing disciplinary action from the California state medical board.

Maui Completely Stops Spraying Roundup, Switches to Organic Herbicides

All purchases of the glyphosate-based, carcinogenic weed killer have been halted, according to Maui Mama. What’s more, the department is about to change the signs on all of their spray trucks to say “Certified Organic Herbicide.”

Beyond Pesticides has also agreed to teach county workers how to make the switch from the health-damaging Roundup chemical applications to a non-toxic solution, FREE OF CHARGE.

United Nations Review Claims Monsanto’s Glyphosate Not Carcinogenic

By Derrick Broze

In the ongoing battle over whether or not Monsanto’s pesticides are a cancer risk to humans, the United Nations has found that glyphosate, an ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer, is not a cancer risk to humans.

Experts with the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) have released a statement claiming that glyphosate is “unlikely to pose a carcinogenic risk to humans” exposed to it through food. The World Health Organization (WHO) co-signed the statement with the FAO. The organizations also found that glyphosate is not likely to be genotoxic, destructive to cell’s genetic material, in humans. The groups met last week and published their conclusions on Monday...
