The Genome Project–Write

Although sequencing, analyzing, and editing DNA continue to advance at breakneck pace, the capability to construct DNA sequences in cells is mostly limited to a small number of short segments, restricting the ability to manipulate and understand biological systems. Further understanding of genetic blueprints could come from construction of large, gigabase (Gb)–sized animal and plant genomes, including the human genome, which would in turn drive development of tools and methods to facilitate large-scale synthesis and editing of genomes. To this end, we propose the Human Genome Project–Write (HGP-write)...

FLASHBACK - The Ringworm Scandal: When Israeli Doctors Killed Tens of Thousands of Arab Children

But unlike here, Israel allowed one senior health official, Dr. Chaim Sheba, to conduct a massive program of unnecessary medical treatments, at enormous expense, which actually killed many of the victims. At that time, many children developed ringworm, a non-lethal condition of fungal origin which affected the scalp. Unlike in other countries, 100,000 Jewish (and Palestinian) Arab children were irradiated in order to treat the condition. While medical protocol of the day directed that no technician receive a dose higher than .5 Roentgen, those treated could received a higher dose. A lethal dose was considered 200 Roentgen (R). The children treated received individual doses of 350R. Sometimes they received two doses (for a total of 600R). 6,000 of the victims died within the first year or so after treatment. To this day, many of the remaining victims suffer cancers, epilepsy, infertility and other brain disorders.

Stephen Hawking Knows How To Find Things Lost In Black Holes

If you suspect that a black hole has consumed all of those stray items that you just can’t find, don’t give up: Stephen Hawking thinks he knows how to retrieve them. He says black holes’ “soft hair” captures data about all that has disappeared into them.

When the black hole evaporates – a possibility Hawking first mentioned in 1975 – this “soft hair” would release the information that had been stored inside, according to a paper cowritten by Hawking, Malcolm Perry of the University of Cambridge and Andrew Strominger of Harvard University.

New chemical elements to be named after Moscow City, Russian academician

The Mendeleev periodic table will be appended with four new elements. The element with the index 113 will get the symbol Nh and will be named nihonium after Japan (Nihon), while the element with the index 115 will have the symbol Ts and the name tennessine after Tennessee State. "For the element with atomic number 115 the name proposed is moscovium with the symbol Mc," the press release said. "Moscovium is in recognition of the Moscow region and honors the ancient Russian land that is the home of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, where the discovery experiments were conducted using the Dubna Gas-Filled Recoil Separator in combination with the heavy ion accelerator capabilities of the Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions. "For the element with atomic number 118 the collaborating teams of discoverers at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Dubna (Russia) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (USA) proposed the name oganesson and symbol Og," IUPAC said.

Over 80 percent of popular bread brands contain cancer-causing chemicals

Before you make that next sandwich, you may want to read the list of ingredients on your bread bag label – because there's a very good chance that it may contain carcinogens.

A food additive used in bread called potassium bromate has been in the international news lately. Indian health officials have recently called for a ban on the use of the additive, which has been shown to cause cancer in laboratory animals.

A testing of products in India found potassium bromate in 84 percent of 38 popular brands of bread, buns, pizza crusts and other baked goods.

Potassium bromate has already been banned in numerous countries, including the entire EU, the UK, Canada, China and Brazil.

Bad news for Quaker Oats. After a random inspection from Taiwan’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA), glyphosate (the compound deemed to be “probably carcinogenic by the WHO last year) was detected in 10 out of 36 oatmeal products, exceeding the country’s legal limit. As a result, the country recalled nearly 62,000 kilograms of oatmeal...

ven after my heart attack I had problems since I had damaged 35% of my heart, I was walking every day and changed my diet to try to improve my health. It was not working, I could not carry any weight and had problems doing my job. Then my wife while at a tofu cooking class found out about a Garlic, cayenne combo and I started to take it every day. Seven months after starting these herbs, I had some chest pain. It was different then angina, so my doctor did some tests and my damaged heart had rebuilt itself. That was the turning point of my life. That was when I knew I had to tell everyone who will listen to my story hoping that soon, they have a story to tell me.

Seattle-Caught Salmon Found To Contain Cocaine, Antidepressants, And Pain Relievers

By Amanda Froelich

Salmon is purported to be one of the healthiest foods due to its high omega-3 content, protein, and essential fatty acids; but if the fish is obtained from the Puget Sound, it is anything but healthy.

According to a recent study, up to 81 drugs and personal-care products were detected in the flesh of salmon caught in the Puget Sound. Some of the drugs include Prozac, Advil, Benadryl, Lipitor, and even cocaine. The Seattle Times reports that the levels are believed to be so high because either people in the area use more of the drugs detected, or because waste water plants are unable to fully remove the chemicals during treatment. Another theory is that leaky septic tanks are contributing to the problem, as high fecal coliform counts were detected...

Zika: Message to Purveyors of Medical Fraud

By Jon Rappoport

The Zika-microcephaly connection is scientific nonsense. Let me run it down for you.

My analysis is beyond, “But Expert A says…” I am not dealing in appeals to authority, but instead the standards of evidence anyone can see if he opens his eyes.

First of all, the latest figures out of Brazil, the so-called epicenter of the microcephaly tragedy, reveal the following: 854 confirmed cases of microcephaly; and of those, 97 cases show the presence of the Zika virus.

Inference? Zika is not the cause of microcephaly. If it were, researchers would be able to detect it in all, or the overwhelming percentage of, microcephaly cases...

We Can’t Afford To Cure Cancer

Someone has said there are just too many jobs in the pursuit of a cancer cure to allow any therapy to be proven and put into practice. Recognize the nation is dotted with cancer research centers that hold billions of dollars of debt. For example, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington holds $176 million of debt. [Moody’s Investor Service] Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, the nation’s cancer research center, holds $1.9 billion of debt. [Moody’s Investor Service] A cancer cure would leave research centers like these on the hook for loans that could not possibly be paid back.

Better for cancer research centers to live off the $4.95 billion of research grants that get divvied out by the National Institutes of Health each year than to find a cure.

In light of this revelation, the public may be better served by private enterprise that is not reliant on public funding to find a cure for cancer.

'Minivan-sized' sea creature discovered off Hawaii

Two Hawaii scientists believe they've come across one of them, and it's a jaw-dropping wonder.
A "minivan-sized" sea sponge was discovered deep in the ocean near Hawaii, according to findings published this week in the scientific journal Marine Biodiversity.
Scientists aboard the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer spotted the massive sea creature at a depth of 7,000 feet within the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument, a protected U.S. National Monument spanning 140,000 square miles of ocean, during a month-long expedition from July to August of 2015.

This is how a professor of neuroscience and business at Northwestern University opened his TED talk back in February. His presentation, posted by TED in March, is titled “Moran Cerf: This scientist can hack your dreams.”

“I am a neuroscientist,” Dr. Cerf continues, “and I study how thinking works inside the brain.”

By the time he was 24, Moran Cerf had received a B.S. in Physics and an M.A. in Philosophy from Tel Aviv University. He went on to earn a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Caltech by age 31, in 2009...

Startup Proposes to Land Payload of Scientific Gear on Lunar Surface Some Time Next Year

U.S. officials appear poised to make history by approving the first private space mission to go beyond Earth’s orbit, according to people familiar with the details.

The government’s endorsement would eliminate the largest regulatory hurdle to plans by Moon Express, a relatively obscure space startup, to land a roughly 20-pound package of scientific hardware on the Moon sometime next year.

It also would provide the biggest federal boost yet for unmanned commercial space exploration and, potentially, the first in an array of for-profit ventures throughout the solar system.

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...

Turmeric vs. Tuberculosis: This superfood can supercharge your immune system for robust protection

Dr. Xiyuan Bai and his team found curcumin to be a potent apoptosis inducer. This is a mechanism used by macrophages, a special kind of white blood cells involved in the immune response, to clear out foreign substances such as bacteria, viruses, cancer cells or cellular waste.

In their experiments, they used an in vitro human macrophage infection model to study the effects of curcumin extracts on Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Curcumin was able to boost the macrophages' ability to kill and eliminate the tuberculosis bacteria. The process relies on the inhibition of a cellular molecule, called nuclear factor-kappa B.

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.

IS world getting more volcanic? Huge magma build-up under town with NO volcano

Molten rock has been quiet building up underneath the town of Matata, New Zealand, enough to push up the surface by 40cm

Scientists have confirmed discovering the magma buildup near the town with a population of 650 people, which they fear signals the beginnings of a new volcano.

Geophysicist Ian Hamling said enough magma to fill 80,000 Olympic-size swimming pools has pushed up beneath the land near the coastal town, which is 120 miles south-east of Auckland, since the 1950s.

Its discovery helps explains a spate of earthquakes in the area between 2004 and 2011.

Fukushima and Nuclear Power: Does the Advertising Giant Dentsu Pull the Strings of Japan’s Media?

French journalist Mathieu Gaulène describes the business practices of Dentsu and its competitor Hakuhodo, the biggest and the second biggest advertising companies of Japan respectively. Specifically, it examines how their close relations to the media and the nuclear industry play out in the wake of the 3.11 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster. Focusing Dentsu, Gaulène discusses how the marketing and public relations (PR) giant has dominated major media which large advertising contracts from the nuclear industry. The article is particularly timely as Dentsu unveils its deep ties to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic bid and the Panama Papers. Regrettably, however, with rare exceptions, there is little media coverage of the influence of Dentsu in mainstream Japanese newspapers and magazines.

"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.

Who are the Syrian Desert Hawks?

The Syrians have their own proxy army.

In a matter of two years, the Syrian Desert Hawks (var. Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra) have become one of the most effective fighting forces in the Syrian War; however, very little is known about this paramilitary group.
Often described as a unit from the pro-government “National Defense Forces” (var. NDF), the Desert Hawks actually have no affiliation with the latter or the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

The man behind the Desert Hawks:
The Desert Hawks were originally started by a retired Syrian Army officer, General Mohammad Jaber, in early 2013.

The Desert Hawks are now leading the charge to the provincial capital of Al-Raqqa, where they are looking to expel the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham before the U.S. backed rebels reach the city.

Biological Meltdown: The Loss of Agricultural Biodiversity

Agricultural biodiversity refers to that part of biodiversity that feeds and nurtures people--whether it is derived from the genetic resources of plants, animals, fish or forests. We are losing genetic resources for food and agriculture at an unprecedented rate. It can best be described as a biological meltdown. The statistics are numbing:

Crop genetic resources are being wiped out at the rate of 1-2% every year. Since the beginning of this century, about 75% of the genetic diversity of agricultural crops has been lost.

Livestock breeds are disappearing at an annual rate of 5%, or 6 breeds per month. In Europe, half of all breeds of domestic animals that existed at the turn of the century have become extinct, and 43% of the remaining breeds are endangered.

They were told that in order to prevent “complete and utter chaos” from a banking collapse they must give the banking cartels hundreds of billions of dollars to “bail them out.” Despite an overwhelming majority of the public opposing this action, it was passed with bipartisan support in a matter of hours...

Dead drop

Hillary's server is just a modern,high tech,dead drop!

A dead drop or dead letter box is a method of espionage tradecraft used to pass items or information between two individuals (e.g., a case officer and agent, or two agents) using a secret location, thus not requiring them to meet directly and thereby maintaining operational security. The method stands in contrast to the live drop, so called because two persons meet to exchange items or information.

So-called 'Trillion Meal Study' of GMO safety is junk

A new study about the purported safety of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, was released to the public this month by former Monsanto employee Dr. Alison Van Eenennaam. The Monsanto Company is best known for creating and marketing genetically modified seeds that contain their own pesticides or which are designed to withstand applications of the company’s flagship herbicide Roundup (active ingredient: glyphosate).

Dr. Van Eenennaam’s study has been loudly touted by pro-GMO talking-heads, who claim it has “ended the debate” about the safety of GMOs in the food chain. The claim is impressive: over 100 billion animals consuming a total exceeding 1 trillion meals of genetically modified grain over a 19-year period show no statistical difference in health when compared with livestock fed a conventional diet.

Unfortunately for Van Eenennaam (and the circus of biotech industry bloggers promoting her), the claim is not supported by the evidence in her meta-analysis of livestock data.

Genetically modified Golden Rice falls short on lifesaving promises – new study

The article below appears just a couple of weeks after GMO zealot Matt Ridley published an Opinion piece in The Times titled, “Time to embrace GM crops... and reap the rewards”.

Ridley wrote: ”It is a disgrace that Greenpeace still campaigns against golden rice, a vitamin-enhanced variety that could save hundreds of thousands of lives a year."

But a study published in April (abstract at the foot of this post) by Glenn Davis Stone, professor of anthropology and environmental studies at Washington University in St Louis, and Dominic Glover, a rice researcher at the Institute for Development Studies at the University of Sussex, shows that anti-GMO activists are not to blame for Golden Rice’s unfulfilled promises. The fact is that the rice still isn’t ready, after 24 years of research and millions of dollars in funding.

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

Snow falls on first summer day in Russia

Snow fell in quite a few Russian cities on the first summer day of 2016.
People posted photos of snow-covered blooming trees and green grass in social media. In the town of Noyabrsk and Muravlenko of the Tyumen region of Russia, residents woke up on Wednesday morning to see a thin layer of fluffy snow on pavements and trees. The snow did not melt, and one could make a small snowman, a local newspaper wrote. Snow fell in Surgut and Novy Urengoy and Noyabrsk as snow fell. Residents of Russian northern regions had to wear sweaters and coats to go out on the first summer day. Meteorologists say that snowfalls in Russia's northern territories may continue till the end of this week.

Who Runs Washington? The Long Reach of Big Pharma

Like a mythical sea monster, the true nature of a Wall Street-London centered global corporatocracy is often talked about but rarely seen. However, on rare occasions, a tentacle breaks the surface and affords the public an opportunity to examine and assess its true, gargantuan dimensions.

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.

Trump's Most Bitter Enemies

Donald Trump may be underestimating his neocon enemies, who are now grouped around Bill Kristol, and working relentlessly to upend Trump’s bid for the presidency. Contrary to what Trump tells us about Kristol as a “loser” and “lightweight,” the GOP’s presumptive nominee’s opponents are not to be treated as inconsequential. For all their ethnic hang-ups and lack of any recognizable conservative principle, Trump’s neocon enemies have an extremely strong hand. Their control over the conservative movement is much more formidable than he suggests; and their public presence, which stretches from the Murdoch media empire into the national press, is still a thing to behold. I am pulling for the Donald in this fight but am still not willing to bet on his victory over those who deserve to be defeated.

The Republican Party’s presidential nominee, Donald Trump, has made his short-list of vice presidential choices. The news is out that former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is top on the list. This is great news for billionaire Jewish money-men, but it is very sad news for patriotic Americans.

The billionaire Jews who own the Republican Party establishment are eager to see their long-time puppet, Gingrich, sitting just a heartbeat away from the Oval Office. Then, at the crack of an assassin’s bullet, the President could be slain and—ka-ching!—the cash registers would be rung as President Gingrich, an ardent Zionist and Israel-firster, is sworn in.

BOOM: Blue Cross Blue Shield Requests Whopping 60% Rate Hike in 2017 Thanks to Obamacare

It’s a domino effect. Obamacare is imploding the nation’s health care system.

As more and more private health insurance companies complain of profit losses and pull out of states who refuse to hike rates to unaffordable levels, it is highly likely the situation will become unsustainable and ultimately used as an excuse for the government to take control over all healthcare, moving the US to a national system just like in the UK or Canada.

In fact, this is exactly what Senator Harry Reid said that Obamacare was a step towards when it was first rolled out: a single-payer national health care system. Now we’re watching it happen.

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.

The research is being led by Molecular Geneticist Dr. Michael Antoniou with King's College in London, and Cellular and Molecular Biologist Dr. Robin Mesnage, who successfully reverse-engineered the co-formulants in Roundup.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You need to avoid this product like the plague.

Genius Concept: This Village Is Made Entirely Of Plastic Bottles

On beautiful Isla Colón in Bocas Del Toro, Panama, the world’s first-ever village constructed out of recycled plastic bottles is underway.

Robert Bezeau, the founder of the project, is in the process of building 120 houses to complete the village. Each house will have a steel frame filled with plastic bottles and coated in concrete.

Though steel and concrete are not ideal building materials, plastic bottles surprisingly are. Besides the fact that each house uses at least 10,000 recycled plastic bottles, which is great for the environment, the air in the bottles acts as an insulator and keeps the house at a cool 62 degrees Fahrenheit without any extra energy...

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.

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.

Kid Scientist, 12, Trolls Anti-Vaxxers In Hilarious Viral Video

Marco Arturo has no time for anti-vaxxers.

In a Facebook video that’s gone viral, the 12-year-old from Mexico hilariously trolled parents who refuse to vaccinate their children.

Marco set up the clip by claiming everyone had “been lied to by doctors and pharmaceutical companies about vaccines.”

“After a lot of research I realized that vaccines do and will cause autism,” he said, holding up what he claimed was a damning dossier of his findings.

But when he opened the folder, titled “Evidence That Vaccines Cause Autism,” all of the pages were blank.

“I think it might be because there is absolutely no evidence to support the statement that vaccines are linked to autism in any way whatsoever,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, neither Marco Arturo nor Ariana Huffington got the memo: last week, the CDC was forced to admit that Thimerosal, a preservative used in at least 60 vaccines currently being administered to children, increases the risk of Autism over 7-fold.

And I know this is cynical, but I have to wonder; just how much of Ms. Huffington's and Marco Arturo's family's portfolios are invested in pharmaceutical companies which manufacture some of these vaccines?

Over 100 Freedom of Records Act (FOIA) requests have finally forced the euphemist US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to admit a widely used vaccine preservative is the equivalent of a neurological armageddon. With help from PhD Scientist and Biochemist, Brian Hooker, the agency has finally had to reveal that they have known for years that thimerosal, which was banned in 1999, but still used in over 60 vaccines, causes autism. Robert F. Kennedy has been trying to alert the public of the same troublesome findings that Hooker has unveiled, but he is often dismissed, or worse, made into a media fool by the pharmaceutical industry. “When the results of the Verstraeten study were first reported outside the CDC in 2005, there was no evidence that anyone but Dr. Verstraeten within the CDC had known of the very high 7.6-fold elevated relative risk of autism from exposure to Thimerosal during infancy. But now, clear evidence exists. A newly-acquired abstract from 1999 titled, “Increased risk of developmental neurologic impairment after high exposure to Thimerosal containing vaccine in first month of life” required the approval of top CDC officials prior to its presentation at the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) conference. Thimerosal, which is 50% mercury by weight, was used in most childhood vaccines and in the RhoGAM shot for pregnant women prior to the early 2000s.The CDC maintains there is “no relationship between Thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism rates in children,” even though the data from the CDC’s own Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) database shows a very high risk. There are a number of public records to back this up, including this Congressional Record from May 1, 2003. The CDC’s refusal to acknowledge thimerosal’s risks is exemplified by a leaked statement from Dr. Marie McCormick, chair of the CDC/NIH-sponsored Immunization Safety Review at IOM. Regarding vaccination, she said in 2001, “…we are not ever going to come down that it [autism] is a true side effect…” Also of note, the former director of the CDC, which purchases $4 billion worth of vaccines annually, is now president of Merck’s vaccine division.” [Source]

Please don't get me wrong: I am not an anti-vaxxer. That having been said, however, I truly believe that parents of very young children need to do the due dilligence about which of the vaccines which are scheduled for their children contain this chemical, and asked for a signed statement from their physician, every time their children are to be vaccinated, that the vaccine they are giving their child does not contain thimerosal. This has got to go viral, and put the leadership of the pharmaceutical companies still using this chemical in their vaccines publicly to shame.

And yes, there is such a thing as a "Vaccine Court" to address compensation for families. But the burden of proof is astronomically high, for broken-hearted parents whose kids are now autistic. As reported at thedailysheeple.com pm 4 February, 2015:

The CDC and FDA co-sponsor a national vaccine safety surveillance program called Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). It serves to collect information about adverse events (possible side effects) that occur after the administration of vaccines licensed for use in the United States. People can report reactions that may be related to vaccinations there, and the data is open and available for anyone to access. If a case makes it to vaccine court and an award is granted to a family, the money comes from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program: Since the first National Vaccine Injury Compensation (VICP) claims were filed in 1989, 3,887 compensation awards have been made. More than $3.0 billion in compensation awards has been paid to petitioners and more than $120.4 million has been paid to cover attorneys’ fees and other legal costs. To date, 9,860 claims have been dismissed. Of those, 4,912 claimants were paid more than $64.8 million to cover attorneys’ fees and other legal costs.

If vaccines were all so completely safe, how has the burden of proof been met to the tune of 3 billion dollars in compensation awards?!?

And one last little factoid on this issue. As reported at activistpost.com on 1 April, 2016:

A HUGE hat tip and shout out goes to Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, for finding pharmacological admittance and written proof that at least one vaccine causes autism as an adverse reaction. According to the U.S. FDA’s online Biologics Blood Vaccines publication, Sanofi Pasteur’s Diphtheria, Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis Vaccine Adsorbed (DTaP) package insert information under the section for Adverse Reactions, which runs from page 6 to page 11, we find the following declared admission that DTaP caused autism “during post-approval use of Tripedia vaccine.” See the copy and paste information below. So, why all the denials that a vaccine hasn’t or can’t cause autism?

WHY IT’S EASIER TO BE PRESCRIBED AN OPIOID PAINKILLER THAN THE TREATMENT FOR OPIOID ADDICTION

Prescription opioid abuse and its downstream effects have reached epidemic proportions in the United States. On May 26, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) moved a step closer to providing help to those addicted to opioids by approving a new implant containing buprenorphine, an opioid replacement that can reduce the cravings of addiction. Still, thousands of people who could benefit from the drug may not have access to it. If the implantable form is regulated in the same way as its oral counterpart – and there is no reason to believe it will not be – only certain doctors will be allowed to prescribe the drug.

THESE JUSTIFICATIONS ARE NO LONGER VALID OR ACCEPTABLE… AN AGRICULTURE DRIVEN BY ECONOMICS FAILED TO PROVIDE FOR THE HEALTH OF THE SOIL OR THE HEALTH OF PEOPLE.
