One Third of US Honey Bees lost this winter - Health Supreme NewsGrabs Thursday 6 May 2010Mites, infections, pesticides and poor nutrition ... none of them alone are sufficient cause and none of them had a great increase in these last years. So no single cause has been identified, yet the hypothesis, brought forward by several researchers, that the growing electromagnetic pollution brought by an explosion of cell phone networks, could be the culprit is not even mentioned much less investigated.

Honey Bees - Fears for crops as shock figures from America show scale of catastrophe
The number of managed honeybee colonies in the US fell by 33.8% last winter, according to the annual survey by the Apiary Inspectors of America and the US government's Agricultural Research Service (ARS).
The collapse in the global honeybee population is a major threat to crops. It is estimated that a third of everything we eat depends upon honeybee pollination, which means that bees contribute some £26bn to the global economy.
Potential causes range from parasites, such as the bloodsucking varroa mite, to viral and bacterial infections, pesticides and poor nutrition stemming from intensive farming methods. The disappearance of so many colonies has also been dubbed "Mary Celeste syndrome" due to the absence of dead bees in many of the empty hives.
Submission to EFSA: Your Aspartame Review is Unacceptable
Betty Martini of Mission Possible World Health International writes to the EU's Food Safety Authority who decided to keep artificial sweetener aspartame on the market despite overwhelming evidence of foul play in its approval and widespread side effects - effectively denied by the FDA and other health authorities - in aspartame use.
200 deputies urge EU parliament to investigate H1N1 outbreak
The members, who come from across the political divide, said one of its aims would be to evaluate the EU's dependence on the World Health Organisation.
Speaking at a news conference in parliament on Wednesday, Belgian Greens MEP Isabelle Durant said the management of the outbreak had "seriously undermined the credibility of, and confidence in our institutions".
Two Videos: Unfriendly skies - toxins in airplane cabins
Ever smell petroleum on airliner?
I have and I've never given it much thought.
Now I do.
This is NOT just a European airline problem and as, is too often the case, corrupt government agencies are permitting corrupt corporations to mislead and injure the public.
New Airport scanners tear up human DNA
The Backscatter doesn't actually emit X-rays, but little tested T-rays, or THz waves (terahertz waves), which is radiation that is positioned between microwaves and infrared rays on the electromagnetic spectrum. And as would be expected, the Cartel's scientists and corporate media have ensured that whether or not T-rays severely damage biological systems is to be a controversial subject: this is the usual Cartel stratagem whenever their agenda is on shaky grounds.
Boian Alexandrov, of the Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los alamos National Laboratory, however, has a very decided opinion regarding the dangers of T-rays: He tells us that T-rays tear apart human DNA.
Alexandrov, and his team at Los alamos, say that although the forces that T-rays exert are small, their resonant effects can "unzip" DNA strands, tearing them apart, thus creating bubbles in the strands that significantly interfere with gene expression and DNA replication. And whatever that means, it doesn't sound good.
In Monsanto's Ag Empire Patents Trump Public Interest
A common complaint is that the U.S. government conducts no independent testing of these biotech crops before they are approved, and does little to track their consequences after.
The developers of these crop technologies, including Monsanto and its chief rival DuPont, tightly curtail independent scientists from conducting their own studies. Because the companies patent their genetic alterations, outsiders are barred from testing the biotech seeds without company approvals.
The Silent War on the People of India
No bombs have been dropped in this war. Instead, the aggressors have chosen two weapons that kill silently, slowly. Those weapons are deliberate contamination of India’s seeds with genetically engineered organisms and radioactive contamination of around 400 million people in India. The aggressors are: the United States Government and the multinational seeds companies [chiefly Monsanto and its Indian partners]. Other Ag-biotech firms are not far behind.India is getting back at the European Union for having sequestered, about a year ago, several shipments of pharmaceutical drugs for "violation of European pharma patents", while neither in India nor in the countries of destination, they violated any patent laws. EU pharma industry asked for the sequesters, but now the action is backfiring, with India demanding guarantees that such action will not repeat and actually filing a free trade complaint with the World Trade Organization.
Depleted Uranium In India, Spreading Worldwide
Depleted uranium has been used in at least the last four wars by the United States and its allies: Gulf War 1, Bosnia and Kosovo in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Gulf War 2. The last two of the four wars, all illegal, took place in 2001 (Afghanistan) and 2003 (Iraq). Effects of the contamination can manifest from within a few hours to five years.
Evidences clearly indicate that depleted uranium is blowing in the wind all over the world. Its effects on health are showing up in distant lands. Earlier, gulf war veterans and local civilians were affected; now, of all the places, the US is showing six-fold increase in just lung cancer cases.
Orthomolecular Medicine Proponents Condemn Wikipedia Bias
"The Wikipedia account of Orthomolecular Medicine is quite misleading. Dr. Roger J. Williams found there to be a wide range of variations in human biochemistry and need for nutrients, work which has never been refuted. Mainstream medical scientists and doctors do not take such variability into account when considering the nutritional requirements of patients. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of the individual nutrients only provides enough to prevent the deficiency diseases in healthy people but offers nothing about the requirements of people who are ill. Orthomolecular physicians take the specialized nutritional needs of sick patients into account. Drugs, best described as deadly poisons given in sublethal doses, cannot be considered safe, since, in the USA alone, well over 100,000 patients per year die from the toxic effects of drugs given according to the manufacturers' recommendations. By contrast, deaths due to vitamins given in doses far higher than the RDA is zero."
Gary Null deconstructs electroconvulsive 'therapy'
If you thought shock treatment was a thing of the past, you’re wrong. ECT is making a comeback, with its supporters saying it helps depression and prevents suicide. There are three things you should know, though: It doesn’t help depression. It doesn’t prevent suicide. And patients coming out of this treatment can have more problems than they did going in ...
WHO Issues Warning About Corruption of Pharmaceutical Industry
The World Health Organization (WHO) recently issued a fact sheet warning about the corruption and unethical practices that are endemic to every step of the pharmaceuticals business.
"Corruption in the pharmaceutical sector occurs throughout all stages of the medicine chain, from research and development to dispensing and promotion," the fact sheet reads.
Off-label use of Ritalin and Concerta in Sweden
Report by independent investigator Janne Larsson
"I want to put in question the actions taken by the concerned pharmaceutical
companies and by the Swedish medical authorities (mainly the Medical Products
Agency, MPA). I want to put in question their willingness to find out and to know, and
I want to claim that the total ineffectiveness shown, in actual fact should be seen as
obstructions of the important safety actions decided by the Commission."
How to Stop Epidemic Antipsychotic Drug Prescribing
Any FDA-approved drug, whose manufacturer has been found by a court of law or the Department of Justice--to have illegally marketed the drug by concealing risks or incidence of adverse effects, or making unsupported claims of clinical benefit--should be denied coverage by taxpayer funded insurance programs--including Medicaid, Medicare, Veterans' Affairs.
Vaccine Exposures to Thimerosal (Mercury) & Premature Puberty
A new study, "Thimerosal Exposure & Increasing Trends of Premature Puberty in the Vaccine Safety Datalink", published in the most recent issue of the peer-reviewed Indian Journal of Medical Research, confirms a significant association in American children between an increasing rates of premature puberty and increasing exposure to mercury from Thimerosal-containing childhood vaccines.
Well Educated Parents Refuse To Get Their Children Vaccinated
The finding of the study, published Tuesday in the journal PLoS Medicine, adds to a growing body of evidence that suggests vaccination efforts are being eroded not by people who are under-educated, but by upper-middle class folks with degrees.
