Hacking Your Body's Bacteria for Better Health
Clinical trial data on probiotics is incomplete, but there are many indications that hacking the body's bacteria is beneficial. In sheer numbers, bacterial cells in the body outnumber our own by a factor of 10, with 50 trillion bacteria living in the digestive system alone, where they've remained largely unstudied until the last decade. As scientists learn more about them, they're beginning to chart the complex symbiosis between the tiny bugs and our health.

Codex Alimentarius Wrangles over Food Labels
The Codex Committee on Food Labeling met in Ottawa from 30 April to 4 May. The National Health Federation reports. Countries influenced by strong pharmaceutical industries vote to keep important information on nutrition-based disease prevention off food labels, while GM grain producing countries press to make sure consumers are not told whether the grain products they eat are genetically modified or not.

Leading Alternative Health Group Speaks Out on FDA Suppression of Complementary & Alternative Medicine
In December 2006 the FDA finalised a draft guidance document entitled "Draft Guidance for Industry on Complementary and Alternaternative Medicine Products ...". The document seeks to provide "industry" -­ practitioners and suppliers of products -­ the FDA's current thinking on the relationship between existing laws and the practice of 'complementary and alternative medicine'. The document has generated everything from internet hysteria, much of it triggered by a misinformed take circulated in early April by the Natural Solutions Foundation through to a non-plussed 'this guidance document changes nothing' approach, which is keeping the heads of others firmly planted in the sand...

SENATE HAS PASSED S. 1082 - Durbin Food Agency Idea Dropped
When the Senate started its consideration of S.1082, Senator Dick Durbin wanted to amend this bill and add his Food Safety Bill, S.645, to this bill. Acting on Durbin's intentions, the NHF's lobbyist contacted Senators and their staff members on the Senate HELP committee to register our objections to allowing this to occur. Subsequent pressure on Durbin by Democratic and Republican members led to Durbin having to withdraw this attempt. In its place, Durbin had to settle for a substantially reduced scope of change. This prevented yet another attempt by Durbin to have the FDA regulate supplements more like it regulates over-the-counter and prescription drugs. This victory, by the way, had absolutely nothing to do with comments sent in to the FDA over its CAM Guidance document – a separate issue.

Senators who weakened drug bill got millions from industry
The bill's chief sponsors — Sens. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., and Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., — agreed after consultations with industry officials and others to modify a proposal that all clinical drug studies be made public, said Craig Orfield, Enzi's spokesman. Under the change, only those studies submitted to the FDA would be available. Enzi took in $174,000 from drug interests since 2001; Kennedy, $78,000. Their spokesmen said the money did not influence them.

IADSA’s action to retain additives yields positive results
Efforts to retain nine additives at IADSA’s proposed levels in the Codex General Standard for Food Additives list bore fruit last week, with all being recommended for adoption. Castor Oil, Polysorbates, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Acesulfame Potassium, Aspartame, Cyclamates, Neotame, Saccharin, Sucralose were endorsed at levels proposed by the International Alliance of Dietary/Food Supplement Associations (IADSA) during the Codex Committee on Food Additives meeting in Beijing last week.

Some of those additives should really never be used in anything that calls itself a health food. I am talking specifically about the artificial sweeteners Acesulfame Potassium, Aspartame, Neotame and Sucralose. IADSA being the Industry Alliance of Dietary Supplement Associations, I can only ask myself where their heads are at.

Does Aspartame multiply female MS? - New Study Report at Neurology Conference...
At the American Academy of Neurology’s annual meeting, Dr. Gary Cutter, professor of Biostatistics at the University of Alabama, said women are now four times as likely as men to get multiple sclerosis: “It started at two-to-one and is now four-to-one.” Researchers found the ratio of women-to-men is increasing by about 50 percent each decade...

FDA Flooded with 130,000 Letters from OCA & Public Interest Groups Opposing Cloned Animals in Food Chain
"More than 130,000 people have said 'No' to unlabeled food from clones," said Ronnie Cummins of the Organic Consumers Association. "People are tired of the biotech industry meddling in the food system, tired of government rubber-stamping approvals, and tired of not having the right to choose what they eat and feed to their families."

An American Court Bans Genetically Modified Alfalfa
In a harsh decision, Judge Charles Breyer reaffirmed that the GM seed can harm the environment and contaminate naturally planted alfalfa. He also stated that the U.S. Department of Agriculture failed to discharge its responsibilities by ignoring the fact that there were doubts surrounding the likelihood of contamination by the GM seed. The ruling requires companies to reveal the locations of all their Monsanto Roundup Ready GM alfalfa fields in the U.S. within 30 days. Judge Breyer has also asked the companies to make the information public as soon as possible to enable conventional and GM alfalfa producers to determine whether their crops have been contaminated. In pronouncing the ban, Judge Breyer noted that contamination of natural alfalfa by its GM counterpart has already occurred, stating, "Such contamination is irreparable environmental harm. The contamination cannot be undone."

Genetically Engineered Crops May Produce Herbicide Inside Our Intestines
Pioneer Hi-Bred's website boasts that their genetically modified (GM) Liberty Link corn survives doses of Liberty herbicide, which would normally kill corn. The reason, they say, is that the herbicide becomes "inactive in the corn plant." They fail to reveal, however, that after you eat the GM corn, some inactive herbicide may become reactivated inside your gut and cause a toxic reaction. In addition, a gene that was inserted into the corn might transfer into the DNA of your gut bacteria, producing long-term effects. These are just a couple of the many potential side-effects of GM crops that critics say put the public at risk.

Canada's Tenth Mad Cow Rouses Concern South of the Border
Mad cow disease has been found in a dairy cow on a farm in Delta, British Columbia, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency confirmed on Wednesday, the tenth Canadian cow to be found with the fatal disease since 2003. South of the border in the United States, only two cases of mad cow disease have been reported. American legislators and cattle producers are urging the placement of country of origin labels on meat so consumers can distinguish U.S. from Canadian beef products.

This would seem very much like the pot calling the kettle black, when the USDA has sharply limited its own testing for BSE. Even Korea says US beef isn't safe. But then - the U.S. press has never been very forthcoming on matters affecting US industry, and beef is big money...

Organic Beekeepers Report No Losses While Conventional Operations Report Massive Colony Losses
Who should be surprised that the major media reports forget to tell us that the dying bees are actually hyper-bred varieties that we coax into a larger than normal body size? It sounds just like the beef industry. And, have we here a solution to the vanishing bee problem? Is it one that the CCD Working Group, or indeed, the scientific world at large, will support? Will media coverage affect government action in dealing with this issue?"

U.N.: Food prices could offset biofuels benefits
Biofuels like ethanol can help reduce global warming and create jobs for the rural poor, but the benefits may be offset by serious environmental problems and increased food prices for the hungry, the United Nations concluded in its first major report on bioenergy.

The Mushroom Cloud that Caused Autism

The official position is a lie that is being used to convince the American public that mercury-containing vaccines haven’t affected a generation of children. This is being done illegally, because it is illegal for a federal agency to propagandize the American public.

As the evidence continues to mount on what may be the largest iatrogenic (physician caused) public health disaster to affect this nation, so too does it appear that the apparent justification for deliberately allowing this to continue was about protecting the vaccine program’s viability (or profitability).

“Ground zero was the nation's capital, in particular the Maryland suburbs where cutting-edge government research in the 1930s and 1940s exposed families to the chemical that first triggered the baffling disorder.”

The U.S. Agriculture Department’s Beltsville research center in suburban Maryland, just outside the nation’s capital, was experimenting with plant fungi and ways to kill them using ethyl mercury fungicide -- the exact kind also used in the vaccine preservative Thimerosal.

The policy of the vaccine division of the CDC is to promote the safety of Thimerosal and to keep it in the vaccine schedule no matter what - to “stay the course.” To do so, more than one law has been broken and the public trust violated.

WHO Criticized for Neglecting Evidence
When developing "evidence-based" guidelines, the World Health Organization routinely forgets one key ingredient: evidence. That is the verdict from a study published in The Lancet online Tuesday.
The study was conducted by Dr. Andrew Oxman and Dr. Atle Fretheim, of the Norwegian Knowledge Centre for Health Services, and Dr. John Lavis at McMaster University in Canada. They interviewed senior WHO officials and analyzed various guidelines to determine how they were produced. What they found was a distinctly non-transparent process. "It's difficult to judge how much confidence you can have in WHO guidelines if you're not told how they were developed," Oxman said. "In that case, you're left with blind trust."

When a child is diagnosed with depression the child is often placed on a potent SSRI drug. The manufacturer of one of the leading SSRI drug knew for many years that the drug caused loss of the ability to control violent behavior thus increasing violence toward self (suicide) and others (mass murders). This information was covered up because it would have hurt sales of the drug. Nearly every teen involved in the Columbine and Red Lake mass murders was taking an SSRI drug.

Major Media Pound Psychiatric Drugging of USA Kids
In May 2007 both The New York Times and USA Today have run major investigations of the rapidly increasing prescriptions of powerful psychiatric drugs, such as the "neuroleptics," to USA children. MindFreedom asks, "Then why is the State of New York still recommending neuroleptics for three-year-old children?"

Doctors reaping millions for use of anemia drugs
Two of the world's largest drug companies are paying hundreds of millions of dollars to doctors every year in return for giving their patients anemia medicines, which regulators now say may be unsafe at commonly used doses. The payments are legal, but very few people outside of the doctors who receive them are aware of their size. Critics, including prominent cancer and kidney doctors, say the payments give physicians an incentive to prescribe the medicines at levels that might increase patients' risks of heart attacks or strokes.

Antiretroviral Therapy (A.R.T.) causes AIDS syndrome, "IRIS"
IRIS is a new syndrome, caused by the drugs used to treat another syndrome, the famously named Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, purported all these years to be caused by yet another fabrication, the 'Human Immuno-deficiency Virus' or HIV. Creatively devising a way of identifying what is rather more than likely the deleterious side effects of antiretroviral (ARV) therapy (ART), the self-titled AIDS research scientists have outdone themselves.

Find One Study, Save Countless Lives - HIV Fact Finder Award
Alive & Well will present a cash award of $25,000 to the first person to locate a study that provides us with missing evidence about the accuracy of HIV tests, and in celebration of this important finding, will donate an additional $25,000 to Heifer International, a unique charity working to end hunger in the developing world using a holistic approach to building sustainable communities. The missing evidence we’re looking for is a study published in a peer reviewed medical journal that shows the validation of any HIV test by the direct isolation of HIV from the fresh, uncultured fluids or tissues of positive testing persons...

No difference between HIV positive and negative?
If you are HIV negative, and you, like the other millions on this planet, have one of these afflictions, you better be prepared to explain yourself. In some parts of the world, it doesnt' matter if you test negative, they'll say you have AIDS, and shove meds down your throat until you get the other 29 infections. If you don't take the meds they will say another one bit the dust because of AIDS. If you take the meds, they'll say it was IRIS. Do not be surprised if you find yourself wondering whether the only difference to be acknowledged is between the victims of DNA altering AIDS drugs and the non-victims.

A recently released book:

The Origin, Persistence and Failings of HIV/AIDS Theory


Thanks to enormous funding for educational programs, the whole world "knows" that HIV causes AIDS. But is what we know compatible with the facts? This book challenges the conventional wisdom on this issue. Collating and analyzing, for the first time, the results of more than two decades of HIV testing, it reveals that the common assumptions about HIV and AIDS are incompatible with the published data. Among the many topics explored are the failings of HIV testing, statistical evidence that HIV is neither sexually transmitted nor increasingly prevalent, and problems caused by the differing diagnostic criteria for AIDS around the world.

But how could everyone have been wrong for so long? This vital question, unaddressed in previous works questioning the HIV - AIDS connection, is central to this book. The author considers comparable missteps of modern science, and discusses how funding influences discovery in today's scientific circles.

Henry H. Bauer is Professor Emeritus of Chemistry & Science Studies and Dean Emeritus of Arts & Sciences at Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University (Virginia Tech). He lives in Blacksburg, Virginia.
The book is available from McFarland and Amazon

Cell Phones - More Damning Evidence
The effects of the radiation can produce a wide range of physical symptoms. Some symptoms may take years to show up. Some of the effects can be short-term while other effects can be long-term or permanent. Opening the blood-brain barrier allows toxins into the brain that cause a wide range of ailments - many of which are currently unknown or poorly understood.

Venezuela to quit World Bank, IMF
Chavez said he wanted to formalize Venezuela's exit from the lending institutions which he said are to blame for continued poverty throughout Latin America. He reportedly plans to create a lending bank run by nations in the region. Venezuela has recently repaid its debts to the World Bank five years ahead of schedule, which saved the country eight million dollars. The OPEC country also paid off all its debts to the IMF shortly after Chavez first took office in 1999.

The American Empire and 9/11 (PDF)
David Ray Griffin
After the attacks of 9/11, I accepted the blowback thesis, according to which the attacks were revenge for U.S. foreign policy. This view led me to undertake an extensive study of the American empire, the very reality of which had been an embattled issue.

Readers' Comments

Dear Sepp:

There are many research papers on autism and autoimmune disorders and other research papers that are interesting to people confused by what is causing more autism.

Posted by: Leslie Feldman on May 15, 2007 01:38 AM


Dear Leslie,

I favor the hypothesis that a rise in autism is connected with our overuse of a poison known to damage nerve tissues: mercury.

We inject it into children in ever increasing quantities with vaccines, we concentrate and then release it into the environment to the degree where foods contain appreciable amounts of it, and we close our eyes to that.

The older-father-and-altered-genes hypothesis does not, in my view, adequately explain the huge increase that is seen in the number of autistic children.
