The Codex Alimentarius Scaremongers - NewsGrabs Tuesday, 5 January 2010Welcome to 2010. I won't bother you with the 10 worst scandals of the past year or the 10 best trends projected for the future. Life will go on without that and - hopefully - we will be more and more in control of our own destiny. But remember, we can't control anything unless we take a keen interest in what is happening and actually find out what's really going on...
Codex Alimentarius - Scaremongers and false experts
Well, December 31, 2009 has come and gone and there is no enactment of Codex “regulations” on dietary supplements into law in the United States. Yes, the European Union’s Food Supplements Directive has come into full effect; but that is a far different beast, not to be confused – as so many have – with Codex Alimentarius.
Is Codex Alimentarius, as its standards are currently being developed, a danger? Absolutely. But were the Codex Vitamin and Mineral Food Supplement Guidelines going to be made into “law” as of December 31st? Absolutely not.
The Food and Drug Administration is in charge of regulating medical devices just as it does drugs, including the machines used to give Electroshock. But it's not doing its job. It has allowed these machines to be used on millions of patients over the past generation without requiring any evidence whatsoever that shock treatment is safe or effective. This is so even though shock machines are Class III -- high risk -- devices, which by law are required to be subjected to thorough clinical trials as thoroughly as new drugs and devices just coming onto the market. But because of intense lobbying by the American Psychiatric Association -- which claims the devices are safe but opposes an investigation -- the FDA has disregarded its own law.
Wikipedia Doesn't Like Me ...
by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen
Everybody in advanced health care knows that Wikipedia articles about health are manipulated by a secret group with an agenda designed to keep the health care status quo. No studies have yet been conducted to determine how much death and damage this group has caused to Earth's population. But I'd guess that it is considerable ... a common thing in the Wikipedia health care world is the "badmouthing" of what are called Alternative Medicine health care paradigms, professionals and activists. Another word for "badmouthing" is defamation, and defamation is actionable in the Courts.
DHEA and Magnesium levels determine state of health
(link from stephentvedten.blogspot.com - blog censored by Blogger. Check out his other site at http://www.stephentvedten.com/ )
According to Dr. Norman Shealy, every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency and low levels of the hormone DHEA ... the health and youth hormone. If your magnesium is low, your DHEA is low. Even a 10% increase in magnesium and DHEA levels is associated with a 48% decrease in death from cardiovascular disease and a 36% decrease in mortality: from all causes. Sadly most soils/foods in the USA virtually have no magnesium.
Council of Europe to Investigate WHO and “Pandemic” Scandal
The Council of Europe member states will launch an inquiry in January 2010 on the influence of the pharmaceutical companies on the global swine flu campaign, focusing especially on extent of the pharma‘s industry’s influence on WHO.
The text of the resolution just passed by a sufficient number in the Council of Europe Parliament says among other things, “In order to promote their patented drugs and vaccines against flu, pharmaceutical companies influenced scientists and official agencies, responsible for public health standards to alarm governments worldwide and make them squander tight health resources for inefficient vaccine strategies and needlessly expose millions of healthy people to the risk of an unknown amount of side-effects of insufficiently tested vaccines. The "bird-flu"-campaign (2005/06) combined with the "swine-flu"-campaign seem to have caused a great deal of damage not only to some vaccinated patients and to public health-budgets, but to the credibility and accountability of important international health-agencies.”
Japan Health Ministry to probe post H1N1 vaccine deaths
Kyodo News - Thursday, Dec. 31, 2009
H1N1 vaccine death probe set
The health ministry will conduct an epidemiologic investigation into whether H1N1 influenza vaccinations can increase the death risk for people with serious chronic diseases, ministry officials said Wednesday.
The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare plans to begin the study next spring amid an increasing number of reports of deaths and serious side effects among the people who have received shots of domestically produced vaccines against the virus.
The ministry said postvaccination deaths have totaled 104, roughly 80 percent of whom are people aged 70 or older who had chronic diseases or disorders, while nearly 1,900 cases of side effects had been reported from medical institutions.
It estimates 14.92 million people have been vaccinated so far nationwide.

Bitter pill - Prozac and Suicides
David Healy claims that Prozac, the bestselling drug of all time, can drive people to suicide - even if they aren't depressed. The company that makes the drug (and earns £1.8bn a year from it) says that's rubbish.
[Healy] calculates that a quarter of a million people worldwide have tried to commit suicide because of Prozac and that 25,000 have succeeded. For the manufacturers of the SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors as this class of drug is called) Healy's work is enormously damaging.

Patients lose themselves in the psychopharmaceutical-industrial complex
The psychopharmaceutical industrial complex (PPIC) and its adherence to the disease model pervades mainstream culture and greatly impacts psychotherapy. Consequently, the effects of the PPIC may have resulted in some psychiatric consumers adopting disease-model messages in ways similar to cult indoctrination. Consumer adoption of the disease model can create obstacles to treatment when hope is fundamental. In this article, I draw parallels between cult indoctrination and PPIC techniques and note similarities between cult members and consumers who are vulnerable to losing their identities to the PPIC. Suggestions for the profession of mental health counseling and those working with these consumers conclude the article.
Vaccines’ Dark Inferno
by Richard Gale and Dr Gary Null
The vast majority of scientists, physicians, nurses and public health educators’ trust that the ingredients in a vaccine have been individually and synergistically proven safe and effective. The public believes these vaccines, aside from their specified virus(es), are sterile solutions, free from undesirable contaminants not listed on the manufacturer’s package inserts.
The story begins with the vaccine industrial complex’s attempt to reduce vaccine manufacturing costs by seeking government approval to use cancerous cell lines in the development of vaccines. Vaccine industry’s rationale is that cancerous cells are “immortal.” Current vaccine methodology relies on animal cells, such as fertilized hen embryos and monkey kidneys, that die quickly in culture. Using cancerous cell lines are also much cheaper than relying on the purchase of animals, especially monkeys, that need to be sacrificed for vaccine substrates...
A Heretic’s View of Influenza’s Role in Health & Disease
By Dr Sherri Tenpenny
A quote from Dr. Rudolf Virchow, the Father of Modern Pathology: “If I could live my life over again, I would devote it to proving that germs seek their natural habitat—diseased tissue—rather than being the cause of dead tissue. In other words, mosquitoes seek the stagnant water, but do not cause the pool to become stagnant.”

EU/IMF REVOLT: GREECE, ICELAND, LATVIA MAY LEAD THE WAY
by Web-of-Debt author Ellen Brown
Total financial collapse, once a problem only for developing countries, has now come to Europe. The International Monetary Fund is imposing its “austerity measures” on the outer circle of the European Union, with Greece, Iceland and Latvia the hardest hit. But these are not your ordinary third world debtor supplicants. Historically, Iceland was settled by the Vikings, who successfully invaded Britain; Latvian tribes repulsed even the Vikings; and the Greeks conquered the whole Persian empire. If anyone can stand up to the IMF, these stalwart European warriors can.
A Serious Resistance

1. We have to build our own personal capacities and competencies, and those of our communities
2. We have to undermine the industrial growth economy that is destroying our world
3. We have to create new natural structures and models that are sustainable, responsible and resilient

Just where does that dollar in your pocket originate? The answer is that all money enters the economy as bank debt. So what? You may ask. This seemingly innocuous detail is actually at the core of many of the social and environmental problems of today.
No Rise of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Fraction in Past 160 Years, New Research Finds
To assess whether the airborne fraction [of CO2] is indeed increasing, Wolfgang Knorr of the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol reanalyzed available atmospheric carbon dioxide and emissions data since 1850 and considers the uncertainties in the data.
In contradiction to some recent studies, he finds that the airborne fraction of carbon dioxide has not increased either during the past 150 years or during the most recent five decades.
