Amino acid imbalance may be cause of Autism
A New Jersey based think tank, The Center for Modeling Optimal Outcomes, LLC made an inadvertent and amazing discovery.
According to The Center's founder, William McFaul, a retired business person and not a member of the scientific community, "Because of its universal applicability, our Life Sciences group has already used the model as a tool to identify highly probable causal paths for several illnesses and disease entities. Autism was one of most difficult illnesses The Center had attempted to analyze. If it hadn't been for so many parents insisting that vaccines were responsible for the condition, we might never have found the fact that the stabilizer in MMR and a few other vaccines is hydrolyzed gelatin; a substance that is approximately 21% glycine. It appears that, based on readily verifiable science, the use of that form of glycine triggers an imbalance between the amino acid neurotransmitters responsible for the absorption rate of certain classes of cells throughout the body. It is that wide-spread disruption that apparently results in the systemic problems that encompass the mind and the body characterized in today's 'classic' autism."
Sudden infant death syndrome linked to low levels of serotonin
The researchers theorize that this newly discovered serotonin abnormality may reduce infants' capacity to respond to breathing challenges, such as low oxygen levels or high levels of carbon dioxide. These high levels may result from re-breathing exhaled carbon dioxide that accumulates in bedding while sleeping face down. The findings appear in the Feb. 3 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association.
Malaria study to test iron, folic acid supplementation
A new study led by the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) will investigate whether long-term weekly iron and folic acid supplementation can reduce anaemia without increasing the risk of contracting malaria.
Professor Bernard Brabin, Head of LSTM's Child and Reproductive Health department, has secured a £0.5 million grant from the US National Institutes of Health, through support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to test the hypothesis that iron supplementation in young women prior to conception and during early pregnancy results in reduced iron deficiency and anaemia in pregnancy without increasing malaria risk.
Alternative chemicals ease safety concerns about nonstick, repellent coatings
Amid concern about the potential toxic effects of the fluorochemicals used in nonstick cookware, water-repellent clothing, and other consumer products, manufacturers are using new versions of these chemicals that may be safer.
Although these new ingredients are considered sound replacements, they may only be a temporary fix, pending development of a new generation of less toxic substitutes.
Iraq to sue US, Britain over depleted uranium bombs
Iraq's Ministry for Human Rights will file a lawsuit against Britain and the US over their use of depleted uranium bombs in Iraq, an Iraqi minister says.
According to Iraqi military experts, the US and Britain bombed the country with nearly 2,000 tons of depleted uranium bombs during the early years of the Iraq war.
Atomic radiation has increased the number of babies born with defects in the southern provinces of Iraq.
Iraqi doctors say they' have been struggling to cope with the rise in the number of cancer cases —especially in cities subjected to heavy U-S and British bombardment.
GM Crops Face Meltdown in the USA
Major crops genetically modified for just two traits - herbicide tolerance and insect resistance are ravaged by super weeds and secondary pests in the heartland of GMOs as farmers fight a losing battle with more of the same; a fundamental shift to organic farming practices may be the only salvation.
HT crops encouraged the use of herbicides, resulting in herbicide-resistant weeds that demand yet more herbicides. But the increasing use of deadly herbicide and herbicide mixtures has failed to stall the advance of the palmer super weed in HT crops. At the same time, secondary pests such as the tarnished plant bug, against which Bt toxin is powerless, became the single most damaging insect for US cotton.
It is disappointing though predictable that the only official academic advice given to farmers is more of the same conventional practices that created the problems in the first place, spraying more and spraying mixtures of different kinds of pesticides, including those banned for being too toxic. Industry, meanwhile, is ready to sell varieties with more stacked GM traits; up to eight at double the seed price.

Would the world be getting along any better without this outfit, which is in theory such a good idea? Would we be in better health?
The question is as serious as it is relevant.
Ghostwriting at Elite Academic Medical Centers in the United States
Medical ghostwriting, the practice of pharmaceutical companies secretly authoring journal articles published under the byline of academic researchers, is a troubling phenomenon because it is dangerous to public health. For example, ghostwritten articles on rofecoxib [also known as Vioxx] probably contributed to “…lasting injury and even deaths as a result of prescribers and patients being misinformed about risks”. Study 329, a randomized controlled trial of paroxetine [traded as Seroxat, Paxil] in adolescents, was ghostwritten to claim that paroxetine is “generally well tolerated and effective for major depression in adolescents”, although data made available through legal proceedings show that “Study 329 was negative for efficacy on all 8 protocol specified outcomes and positive for harm”. Even beyond frank misrepresentation of data, commercially driven ghostwritten articles shape the medical literature in subtler but important ways, affecting how health conditions and treatments are perceived by clinicians. The ability of industry to exercise clandestine influence over the peer-reviewed medical literature is thus a serious threat to public health.
ISIS: Swine Flu a Faked Pandemic
The truth is out. More than half of the experts advising the World Health Organisation (WHO) to declare swine flu a pandemic are linked to drug-makers that have reaped huge profits from untested vaccines and flu drugs. Eleven of the 20 members of the WHO Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) have profited from work done for the pharmaceutical industry or are linked to it through their universities. Many have declared interests in GlaxoSmithKline, the vaccine maker that stands to benefit the most from the pandemic.
Shameful Medical Silence - Two Canadians Paralysed By Swine Flu Vaccine
Until five weeks ago, she was a perfectly healthy woman spending Christmas with her family in Nova Scotia. And then on Dec. 29 she was rushed to an emergency room in Halifax, suddenly unable to stand on feet.
The doctors diagnosed her with Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare neurological condition characterized by sudden weakness or paralysis. And while no one seems willing to discuss the likely cause, the 39-year-old knows exactly where the fault lies.
She blames the H1N1 flu shot she received on Dec. 13 - two weeks before her symptoms suddenly appeared.
UK Doctor's Receptionist Paralysed By Swine Flu Vaccine
When she had the vaccination in December, the mother of two said she felt ‘full of energy’. Six weeks later she started feeling stabbing pains in her legs, which quickly intensified. Almost overnight the condition spread to her face, paralysing one side and causing her eyelids to become puffy and droopy.
Thailand: Miscarriage prompts halt to flu jabs
H1N1 flu vaccinations among pregnant women have been suspended after a woman who received a jab lost her baby to miscarriage a day later.
The Public Health Ministry yesterday denied any link between the vaccinations and the foetal death, but as a precaution suspended flu shots among pregnant women pending an investigation into the miscarriage in the southern province of Satun.
New Zealand: Grieving mother blames Gardasil for daughter's death
Rhonda Renata is in no doubt about what caused the death of her daughter Jasmine. The 18-year-old died last September 22 at her family home in Upper Hutt, apparently in her sleep. It was six months since she had received the last of the three injections of the cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil.
New Zealand: Gardasil Vaccine Warnings Ignored Says Researcher
Julie Smith, researcher and founder of a NZ website set up specifically to give information about the HPV vaccine, Gardasil, www.offtheradar.co.nz says concerned parents have been contacting her wanting to know how they can help to have the vaccine withdrawn from NZ.
"Many more parents are making the connection to their child's sudden onset of deteriorating health since receiving the Gardasil vaccine. What is now happening to our girls here in New Zealand is replicating what has already happened overseas. It was only a matter of time before girls here were going to die from this vaccine," said Ms Smith.
HIV testing: Grabbing a monster by the tail
“Dubula also questioned the accuracy of home testing kits, saying there was no confirmation. ‘All HIV tests must be confirmed. The worry with self-testing is that it’s not always possible to confirm the results. Some people may not be able to afford to buy a second kit to confirm their results,’ she said, urging people to get free tests at public health facilities.”
But there’s no such thing as a confirming HIV test, according to “Laboratory detection of human retroviral infection” by Stanley H. Weiss and Elliott P. Cowan, Chapter 8 in AIDS and Other Manifestations of HIV Infection, ed. Gary P. Wormser, 4th ed. (2004). None of the tests are capable of establishing the presence of HIV infection; all results should be expressed as probabilities...
Colorado proclaims May 2010 as Electromagnetic Sensitivity Awareness Month
For the second year in a row, Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, Jr. signed a proclamation declaring May 2010 as Electromagnetic Sensitivity (EMS) Awareness Month in Colorado. As stated in the proclamation, people of all ages in Colorado and throughout the world have developed the illness of Electromagnetic Sensitivity (EMS) as a result of global electromagnetic pollution.
