Mitochondrial DNA Mutations Cause Degenerative Disease - NewsGrabs 17 February 2008

Health Supreme's NewsGrabs - a selection of contrary and underprivileged news in health and related sectors. Find what you may have missed - watch out for NewsGrabs.

Here is this week's selection:

New Way to Kill Viruses: Shake Them to Death
Scientists may one day be able to destroy viruses in the same way that opera singers presumably shatter wine glasses. New research mathematically determined the frequencies at which simple viruses could be shaken to death.

"The capsid of a virus is something like the shell of a turtle," said physicist Otto Sankey of Arizona State University. "If the shell can be compromised [by mechanical vibrations], the virus can be inactivated."

Recent experimental evidence has shown that laser pulses tuned to the right frequency can kill certain viruses. However, locating these so-called resonant frequencies is a bit of trial and error.

Where have I heard this before? Oh yes, there was Royal Raymond Rife, who developed a technology that could make any virus visible by using certain frequency light and he also developed the technology to destroy these microorganisms by tuning to a frequency that was deadly for them. His work was sabotaged, publications refused his papers, as happened to many others.

"Rife ignored the debate, preferring to concentrate on refining his method of destroying these tiny killer viruses. He used the same principle to kill them, which made them visible: resonance.

This principle can be illustrated by using an intense musical note to shatter a wine glass: the molecules of the glass are already oscillating at some harmonic (multiple) of that musical note; they are in resonance with it. Because everything else has a different resonant frequency, nothing but the glass is destroyed. There are literally hundreds of trillions of different resonant frequencies, and every species and molecule has its very own.

It took Rife many years, working 48 hours at a time, until he discovered the frequencies which specifically destroyed herpes, polio, spinal meningitis, tetanus, influenza, and an immense number of other dangerous disease organisms."

So what else is new?

EU stakeholder group aims for ‘syncing’ of nutrient levels
The European Commission has established a group called EURRECA (which stands for European micronutrient recommendations Aligned) to set standards and procedures on how to determine nutrient intake recommendations. The goal is to align the divergent recommendations for consumption of vitamins and minerals that exist in the different EU member states. Website:

Fatigue may be caused by calcium leak
A Columbia University team found fatigue following exercise is caused by calcium leaking inside muscle cells.

This is interesting in that it may be applicable to fatigue that is not connected with exercise, such as increasingly common 'chronic fatigue'. Finding what causes a leak of calcium from the cells in those cases might lead to an effective preventive strategy.

Mitochondrial DNA mutations can cause degenerative heart and muscle disease
A single change in the DNA of mitochondria – the cellular power plants that generate energy in all human cells – has been found to cause degenerative heart and muscle disease, according to University of California, Irvine researchers.

“While these diseases traditionally have been assumed to result from mutations in the genes encoded by DNA in the cell’s nucleus,” he said, “most common degenerative diseases frequently do not exhibit inheritance patterns wholly consistent with our understanding of these nuclear DNA genetics. Our demonstration that mutations in the mitochondrial DNA can also cause the same diseases means that both nuclear and mitochondrial DNA genes that affect mitochondrial function can contribute to disease risk.”

As the mitochondrial DNA of our cells accumulates damage with age, the blueprints required to sustain energy production are lost, the body’s equivalent of a brownout. The resulting age-related decline in cellular energy production ultimately leads to tissue and organ failure and the development of clinical disease or illness. Thus the accumulation of mtDNA damage may explain aging and the delayed-onset and progressive course of age-related diseases and aging.

This is another piece of corroborating evidence for the emerging view, advanced by Heinrich Kremer, that cancer is connected with a functional breakdown of ATP synthesis in the mitochondria of our cells.

Natural Hormone Group Protests FDA Crackdown
Last week, the HOME (Hands Off My Estrogens!) Coalition, a group based in Edinburg, Va., placed a full-page ad in five newspapers, including USA Today and the Wall Street Journal, accusing the agency of being hostile to “natural” hormonal medicines made according to a doctor’s prescription by a compounding pharmacy. The ads urge women and their physicians to e-mail the White House and members of Congress asking them to protect patient access to meds they claim are “bio-identical” to those found in the body, the Post reports.

Hot Flash? Wyeth And A Vexing HRT Ingredient
The FDA explained that the drugs made by the compounding pharmacies contain hormones such as estrogen, progesterone and estriol, which the agency made a point of noting isn’t a component of any approved drug and hasn’t been proven safe and effective for any use. And this makes for a little bit of irony. In its petition, Wyeth harps on the presence of estriol in these BHRTs as a prime reason the FDA ought to yank the compounded drugs from the market.

At the same time the petition was filed, however, Wyeth was selling Cyclo-Menorette, a menopausal drug in four European countries - Estonia, Germany, Latvia and Poland - that contained, yes, estriol.

Legislators consider aspartame ban
Proponents of the bill were told after a public hearing last week that a ban would be hard to push through. Those who want aspartame taken out of Hawai'i's food supply call it a neurotoxin, a carcinogen and the source of headaches, heart spasms and a host of other ills.

Artificial Sweeteners Increase Weight Gain Odds
A Purdue University study released Sunday in the journal Behavioral Neuroscience reported that rats on diets containing the artificial sweetener saccharin gained more weight than rats given sugary food, casting doubt on the benefits of low-calorie sweeteners. "There's something about diet foods that changes your metabolic limit, your brain chemistry," said ABC News' medical contributor Dr. Marie Savard.

Prenatal Exposure to Household Pesticides May Increase Cancer Risk in Children
(link from - blog censored by Blogger)
Researchers conducted the study in France in 2004 and 2005. They found that when mothers and fathers used pesticides during the mother’s pregnancy, children were at significantly greater risk of developing acute leukemia, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and certain types of Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The association was especially strong with household insecticides.

ACLU Launches Campaign to Decriminalize Marijuana
Travel writer Rick Steves and the American Civil Liberties Union of Washington have formed a partnership to tackle a topic they call the equivalent of the prohibition of alcohol in the 1920s: the criminalization of marijuana. Steves, the Edmonds-based travel guru who five years ago openly acknowledged that he uses marijuana while visiting Europe, says he's not "pro-marijuana," but in favor of discussing the laws that affect the 830,000 Americans who are arrested annually under existing marijuana laws.

Legal drugs aren't necessarily safe drugs
"Heath Ledger had six prescriptions, but no illegal drugs" proclaimed the Appeal (1/14/2008) reporting on the death of the young actor. When are people going to wake up to the "other" drug problem washing over America, that of prescription drugs? Because they are legal, they are believed to be safe. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Time To End Profit Driven Mandatory Vaccination Racket
The push to keep adding more vaccines to the mandatory schedules comes directly from a purely profit motivated industry and a recent investor report estimates that the world-wide market will quadruple from about $4.3 billion in 2006 to more than $16 billion in 2016, with the biggest boost coming from kids in the US.

The crucial factor for success in the pediatric market, the report notes, is the introduction of a product into national vaccination schedules. "Along with reimbursement, this virtually guarantees the rapid uptake and continuously high coverage rates in the target population..."

Datamonitor sees a huge commercial opportunity in HPV vaccines, with annual sales of $1.4 billion in teenage girls for the seven major markets by 2016 and a cumulative catch-up opportunity in women aged 13-26 that could add up to over $17 billion until 2016.

Paxil Suicide Data: The Glenmullen Report
The New Scientist reports that unsealed court documents - including an expert report by Harvard psychiatrist, Joseph Glenmullen, MD - reveal that GlaxoSmithKline knew as early as 1989 that there was an 8-fold increased risk of suicide for patients taking Paxil. Yet, the company did not acknowledge the risk to the public until 2006.

Did GSK trial data mask Paxil suicide risk?
An inappropriate analysis of clinical trial data by researchers at GlaxoSmithKline obscured suicide risks associated with paroxetine, a profitable antidepressant, for 15 years, suggest court documents released last month. Not until 2006 did GSK alert people to raised suicide risks associated with the drug, marketed as Paxil and Seroxat.

Lawmakers Catch Glaxo Hiding Paxil Suicide Risks - Again
Apparently, GlaxoSmithKline is still trying to hide damaging information about Paxil, because 9 pages of a report released from under a court order last month, are not available to the public. However, Senator Charles Grassley has instructed Glaxo to provide him with the full report by February 14, 2008.

This article is in two parts. Part II is here.

On February 7, 2008 the government halted an arm of its ACCORD trial (Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes) because drug treatments in type II diabetics to aggressively lower blood sugar, combined with drugs to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, resulted in a 20% increased risk of death. The ACCORD trial represents all that is wrong with medicine in America today...

British Politician Calls For End To "Prozac Nation"
"Clegg, who is putting mental health at the top of his party's public services agenda, said it was time that the issue was put at the centre of the political debate. He said: 'It is time to break the silence - we must take the issues around mental health out of the shadows.'

He accused the Labour government of under investment in mental health services and failing to provide alternatives to drug therapies, branding Britain as the 'Prozac nation' after revealing that 31 million prescriptions were issued for anti-depressants in 2006, including 631,000 for children."

The latter, a meta-analysis (quantitative assessment) of a dozen studies had concluded, “Among those who reported never using condoms, the summary estimate of HIV/AIDS incidence from the seven studies was 6.7 seroconversions per 100 person years”. Now: if there are 67 acts of intercourse per year, that corresponds to a transmission rate of a mere 1 per 1000 unprotected acts; at more than 67 acts per year, it corresponds to an even lower rate of apparent transmission. As often pointed out, such rates are far too low to bring about an epidemic.

One can hardly ask for better grounded reasons for recognizing that “HIV-positive” does not signify permanent infection; and that consequently all the claims of mother-to-child transmission of a virus — be it perinatally or as a result of breastfeeding — cannot be taken as valid, based as they are on the most dubious grounds. Given these facts, how could anyone recommend the administering of toxic anti-retroviral drugs to pregnant women and babies?

Hiv Testing - Know your rights

Liam Scheff has compiled a series of articles, linked from this page, that discuss the nature of HIV tests. Anyone considering to take a test should document themselves before doing so. Informed consent should really be promoted by the medical authorities, but it is not. Here is the information all in one place to study.

HIV vaccine research hits impasse
"I believe that HIV has found ways to totally fool the immune system," he said. "So we have to do one better than nature."

What if, rather than ascribing supernatural powers to a simple virus that isn't even present in many Aids patients, we started to look into the original hypotheses of Aids as a viral disease? Perhaps we could discover what really causes Aids and could start supplying the nutrients these people are so deficient in.

Heavy cell phone use tied to poor sperm quality
In a study of 361 men seen at their infertility clinic, researchers at the Cleveland Clinic found an association between the patients’ cell phone use and their sperm quality. On average, the more hours the men spent on their cell phones each day, the lower their sperm count and the greater their percentage of abnormal sperm.

Neurological effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation
by Henry Lai
This paper is not new but it summarizes much research into the effects that radiofrequency radiation has on biological function, even at very low intensities. The conclusion: "At this point, little is known about the biological effects of mobile telephone use, but since there are indications that the radiation from these phones can cause biological effects that could be detrimental to health, prudent usage should be taken as a logical guideline."

New Crop of Ranchers Buck Cattle Industry to Go Green
Nitschke, 31, who makes his living herding heifers through pastures near Yosemite National Park, would never call himself an environmental activist, though he's planting saplings to protect nearby streams and runs a light herd to let his pastures breathe. Unlike some of his conservative counterparts in traditional livestock production, he and a new crop of cattlemen are quietly working to minimize their industry's ecological footprint, and are forging unlikely alliances with environmental groups.

Monsanto's False Advertising in India: Aggressive, Unscrupulous, & False
Posters appeared in many places in Madhya Pradesh before sowing time, featuring a person who claimed to have gained great benefits from using Bt Cotton seed. These advertisements urged other farmers to benefit similarly from the use of Bt Cotton. Investigations revealed that this "farmer" was actually a paan dabbahwala (the owner of a little shop selling betel leaves and cigarettes) who is not even a farmer, let alone a Bt Cotton farmer!!!

Corporations Given ‘Human Rights,’ Humans Are Denied Them
In evaluating allegations that U.S. military forces deprived four British men of human rights during two years they were held captive in Guantanamo Bay prison, a U.S. appeals court found an innovative way to let the Bush administration off the hook. Two of three judges ruled the men — because they are not U.S. citizens and, technically, were not imprisoned in the U.S. — were not legally “persons” and, therefore, had no rights to violate...

Recommended Video of the Week: Zeitgeist
The film has 3 segments: Part I is about the origin of Judeo-Christian Religions; Part II is about 9/11; and Part III is about the history of the Federal Reserve Bank. The theories and facts presented may be distasteful to some ... or mind-blowing and eye-opening to others ... as it was for me. It's certainly not for those do not want to subject themselves to other schools of thought or to those who wish to keep their belief systems in tact ... in fact ... it may destroy your beliefs altogether.

The North American Union and the Larger Plan
A friend sent the link to this article saying it was "interesting and thought provoking". My comment was this:

... they must have learned a great deal from the European experience on how to integrate a whole region.

I like this admission:

in 1995, Brzezinski revealed: "We cannot leap into world government through one quick step....The precondition for eventual and genuine globalization is progressive regionalization because by that we move toward larger, more stable, more cooperative units."

and the piece of the "Amero" as the perfect solution to take over from the (purposely?) weakened dollar is in line with what I have been thinking. Also, looking at the "North America" situation from a purely economic perspective and leaving aside issues of patriotism, a union does make eminent sense.

Of course entirely similar scenarios are playing out at the same time, in the other regions that are preparing for integration, only that we hear less about them.

"Resistance is futile" comes to mind when reading things like this, but then - all we need to do is ride the wave. Globalization is being pushed with a lot of momentum, and rather than resist with all our might, exhausting ourselves in the process, we should be figuring out how to turn that momentum to our advantage ...
