VITAMIN C FOUNDATION RELEASES ITS LIST OF THE TOP TEN WEBSITES THAT DISSEMINATE MISINFORMATION ABOUT VITAMIN C
HOUSTON, TX- The Vitamin C Foundation released a list of the Top Ten Websites That Disseminate Misinformation About Vitamin C today. Topping the list are websites hosted by prestigious organizations such as the National Library of Medicine's "Medline Plus," the National Institutes of Health, the Mayo Clinic, Quackwatch, Consumerlab.com, WebMD and the Merck Manual.
The most often published misinformation about vitamin C is that mega-doses of this vitamin are washed away in the urine and produce nothing more than expensive urine. A recent study published by National Institutes of Health researchers dispels this belief. High oral doses of vitamin C have now been demonstrated to produce three times higher concentration in the blood plasma than previously thought possible. [Annals Internal Medicine 2004 Apr 6 ;140(7):533-7] Since 1996 the National Institutes of Health and the Institutes of Medicine have published spurious information that blood plasma saturation for vitamin C is achieved with a 200 milligram of oral dose and additional amounts are worthless.
Another mistaken but widely distributed fabrication regarding vitamin C is that 5 servings of fruits and vegetables are sufficient to provide the 200 milligrams of vitamin C recommended by the Institutes of Medicine. In fact, the most commonly consumed plant foods (iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, French fries, orange juice and onions) provide only about 110 milligrams of vitamin C, which is the typical consumption level for American adults. Furthermore, the National Cancer Institute concedes five servings of plant foods have not reduced the risk for cancer or heart disease and now recommend nine servings.
Yet another widely held misconception disseminated by various health organizations is that the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA = 75 milligrams for adult males, 90 milligrams for females and an additional 35 milligrams for smokers) is sufficient for 98 percent of the population. In fact, more than 4 in 10 Americans do not even consume the RDA levels of vitamin C. Furthermore, the RDA is misleading since it is established for healthy people only, not millions of Americans who have increased need for vitamin C (example s are smokers, pregnant women, diabetics, athletes, users of aspirin, steroids, birth control pills or estrogen, anemic and hospitalized individuals).
Among other commonly published falsehoods about vitamin C is the assertion that high-dose vitamin C causes kidney stones, that high-dose vitamin C induces iron overload, or that mega doses of vitamin C may cause DNA damage and increase the risk of cancer. These widely held beliefs and not backed by scientific investigation.

Cancer fighting nutrients become deadly when combined with chlorinated tap water
Some of nature's most valuable and essential anti-cancer and anti-disease phytochemical nutrients which are commonly found in food have been discovered to form deadly cancer causing substances when consumed or combined with chlorinated tap water. This discovery includes familiar foods including soy, fruits, vegetables, tea, many health products, and even some vitamins. Research has proven that these essential nutrients are the exact same families of compounds, that even in infinitesimal amounts have been tormenting the water treatment and chlorine industries for years.
Recently, a joint study was undertaken in Japan by research scientists at the National Institute of Health Sciences and Shizuoka Prefectural University. They determined that natural organic substances originating from foods, including fruits, soy, and green or black tea, react when tap water is chlorinated, forming dangerous cancer causing compounds. These deadly compounds have been named MX, which stands for "unknown mutagen", and are similar to the already well-known and more easily detected cancer causing THMs (trihalomethanes).
The Japanese scientists specifically mentioned that their studies showed that MX is created by the reaction of chlorine with natural organic plant phytochemicals such as catechins, which are contained in tea, and flavonoids which are found in fruit. Since Japan has an extremely high consumption of tea, fruits, and soy products, it is easy to see how high amounts of residues from these foods would end up in their wastewater treatment and water recycling systems.
Earlier studies by scientists in Finland in 1997 determined that MX is 170 times more deadly than other known toxic byproducts of chlorination, and was shown in laboratory studies to damage the thyroid gland as well as cause cancerous tumors.
THMs are known to be created by the reaction of chlorine with humic and fulvic acids, which are the final breakdown products of vegetation, including decayed leaves and organic matter. Humic substances are the same as soil humus, of which the fulvic fraction is water soluble and readily transported into streams and waterways, as well as utilized nutritionally by plants.
Very recent scientific discoveries have identified and clarified the composition of fulvic and humic acids as containing a significant amount of nutritional phytochemical groups including hormones, sterols, fatty acids, polyphenols, and ketones, which subgroups include but are not limited to: flavins, flavonoids, flavones, tannins, catechins, quinones, isoflavones, tocopherols, etc.
These compounds are some of the most valuable and promising anti-cancer nutrients found in our foods and health supplements. Coenzyme Q10 is a quinone, vitamin B-2 is a flavin, vitamin E is a tocopherol, citrus bioflavonoids including hesperidin, quercetin, and rutin are all flavonoids, green tea contains catechins, phenols, tannins, and isoflavones. Potentially all of these substances, and many more, are implicated by chlorination.
Amazingly, is has been discovered that these phytochemicals remain intact, concentrated, and intricately combined within humic substances; which are valuable remnants of nature's protective substances contained within fruits, flowers, pollen, nuts and seeds, as well as vegetative parts including roots, stems, bark, and leaves. Even the plant nucleic acids, RNA and DNA remain intact.
To comply with EPA rulings, water treatment plants have had to develop special techniques to scrub the seemingly dubious organic residues from water prior to treatment with chlorine. There is nothing wrong with the organic substances themselves, it is chlorine that is at fault for turning them into the deadly THM and MX cancer cocktail. Reality is that the organic substances have been shown to be highly beneficial combined with pure drinking water in trace amounts.
The bottom line is this: when water treatment facilities remove these substances, they are throwing the precious baby out with the bath water, and the remnants that remain are turned into cancer causing agents by chlorination. To make things worse, it is certain that the fresh plant foods we eat similarly react with the chlorinated tap water we drink with our meals, creating toxins. This means that fresh fruits and vegetables, green salads, green tea, black tea, herb teas, soy products, vitamin pills and various health supplements, and even some pharmaceutical drugs, all can be implicated in combination with chlorinated water.
The deadly cancer causing agents which are produced are extremely toxic in infinitesimal amounts, so small and obscure that they are extremely difficult to detect. Very little chlorine is required. When the concentrations of phytochemicals are high, such as in concentrated health supplements, or even fruits and vegetables coming from more fertile soils, the deadly combination with chlorination intensifies.
It has been known by the water treatment and chemical industries for many years that chlorine reacts negatively with natural organic compounds. These industries call these compounds DBPs (disinfection by-products) which are known to cause cancer in populations whose drinking water contains them. THM, the most commonly known DBP, is known to cause a high incidence of bladder cancer and also to cause spontaneous abortion of fetuses.
The Environmental Protection Agency has continually tightened their restrictions on THMs in drinking water, and even tighter restrictions are just around the bend. Yet it is interesting to note that the many government agencies and chlorine industries have conveniently neglected to take a serious look at food, health supplement, and pharmaceutical drug consumption, preparation, and production relating to use of chlorinated tap water.
There is good reason for the public to seriously examine and question this entire issue. Many years ago laws were passed making chlorination of water mandatory. Now, the chlorine industry and government agencies must continue their existing policies, because if sudden or drastic changes are made, the legal liabilities would be staggering. Certainly some government or industry personnel have known or theorized about these problems and have been covering them up for many years. However, if anyone were to admit to it, the consequences could be disastrous. This predicament could make the tobacco industry scandal seem insignificant in comparison.
Another area needing thorough scrutiny relates to pharmaceutical drug safety studies normally performed on animals in the laboratory. It would be reasonable to surmise that good laboratory practices and procedures would require that such studies be performed using highly purified drinking water for animals. It would be reasonable to believe that drug companies would not take the chance of jeopardizing clinical studies using chlorinated tap water. Of course chlorinated tap water is a common denominator within the human environment. Educating people to the dangers of chlorine would be admitting to knowledge of the problem, which could invalidate past studies and certainly raise serious legal problems.
This whole chlorine issue should come as no real surprise to any biochemist. During the last century, chlorine has been combined with many other normally safe organic substances to form some of the most powerful deadly toxins known, such as dioxin, DDT, PCBs, etc. The bottom line is that the real culprit is chlorine, not the substances with which it reacts.
Although chlorine has essentially eliminated the risks of waterborne diseases such as typhoid fever, cholera and dysentery, there are many pathogens that are not controlled by chlorine. Other and better methods of water treatment exist. Many alternatives are already used throughout the world. Ever tightening EPA regulations have forced the water supply industry in the USA to look into alternative methods for disinfecting water.
For years, environmentalists have battled the water treatment industry and large chemical companies in an effort to ban the use of chlorine in drinking water. This ongoing battle has been a big source of revenue for both sides. As word of the problem spreads to the general public, something might actually be done about it.
As this message spreads, it will no doubt shake the very foundations of the chlorine and water treatment industries, let alone the government agencies that are implicated along with them. There certainly should be cause for serious alarm within the nutritional supplement and food industries, as well as those segments of the medical industry that might awaken to the dilemma.
This message is of utmost importance to the general public, because chlorine will one day, in the near future, be exposed as a major cause and contributor to cancer and degenerative disease. Chlorine will also be found to be responsible for damaging the body's immune and hormonal systems by mutating the food-based plant estrogens and phytochemicals that support those systems. A healthy immune system should be your first and best line of defense against waterborne disease.

MICROWAVED WATER WON'T SPROUT SEEDS
Nuked In Your Kitchen
by William Thomas
Our culture of convenience is killing us. If the stress of buying and replacing an endless array of gadgets isnt harsh enough, our addiction to appliances unheard of only a few decades ago is propelling us toward mass misery, death and health care cost calamity on a scale not seen since cars and cigarettes became as personally essential as all the consumer crazes that followed.
But the electrochemical exchanges that enable cells to function and communicate in human brains and bodies are so subtle, and so delicately attuned to Earths own quietly humming electromagnetics, the inaudible "noise" from so many clever devices threatens to drown the very signals on which all life depends. And there is nothing convenient about cancer.
Already we are seeing unfolding epidemics of cancers, brain damage and immune dysfunction that threaten the "best and the brightest" students and executives among technologically advanced and emerging nations. Particularly hard hit will be the next generation on which so much depends. For this is our "Last Chance Century" to stop abusing ourselves and the planet on which we depend - and it is the young who are most vulnerable to the most pervasive human-made pollution ever unleashed: electromagnetic smog.
Whether portable phone or microwave wonder, exposing your three million year-old hominid self to energy levels never before encountered in primate evolution is a spectacularly bad idea. It turns out that the microwaves messing up your cells from your aptly named "cell phone", neighborhood cell phone tower, or newly acquired long-range cordless phone are radiating at the same 2.45 Gigahertz frequency emitted by your microwave oven.
Studies of plant, animal and human susceptibility to electromagnetic fields show that the higher the frequency the more damage results. Instead of talking on your cell phone while eating a microwaved meal, you might as well go live next to Chernobyls leaky containment dome.
The Russians call the symptoms of this new radiation hazard, "Microwave Sickness". After capturing the first karmically-compromised microwave ovens from their Nazi inventors, the Soviets expanded on the Reichs initial two-year research in Berlin by looking hard at microwave maladies from 1957 until nearly the end of the Cold War - when the Kremlin banned these infernal machines. As Anthony Wayne and Lawrence Newell point out in "The Hidden Hazards Of Microwave Cooking", Russian researchers also found decreased nutritional value - or significant dimming of their "vital energy field" - in up to 90% in all microwaved foods.
In addition, the B complex, C and E vitamins linked with stress-reduction and the prevention of cancer and heart disease - as well as the essential trace minerals needed for optimum brain and body functioning - were rendered useless by microwaves, even at short cooking durations.
Not only is microwaved food reduced to the nutritional equivalent of cardboard, lymphatic disorders leading to an inability to prevent certain cancers were also observed, along with increased rates of cancer cell formation in the blood of people eating microwaved meals. The Russians reported increased rates of stomach and intestinal cancers, as well as digestive and excretive disorders - plus a higher percentage of cell tumors, including sarcoma - in people exposed to food molecularly ripped apart by these dangerous devices.
It turns out that eating over-energized food "zapped" in a microwave imparts that energy to the human nervous system. The resulting stress causes a high blood pressure response, with such characteristic symptoms as migraines, dizziness, stomach pain and anxiety.
Higher incidences of hair loss, appendicitis, cataracts and reproductive problems have also been found among constant consumers of microwaved food - with womens more complex hormones and plumbing proving particularly vulnerable. Regardless of gender, adrenal exhaustion and heart disease caused by microwave food stress, the Russian researchers stressed, can be fatal.
They also found that regularly consuming food "nuked" in a microwave also leads to memory loss and attention disorders - as well as increased crankiness, depression, disconnected thoughts and sleep interruption.
Recent research confirms that the spikes of violently oscillating energy pulsed into microwaved meals and transferred to the blood stream by eating these foods can cause permanent brain damage by "shorting out" intercellular signals and "de-polarizing" brain tissue which depends on natural +/- electrical polarities to function.
in 1976, the same corporate-controlled US media that later failed to flag Americans on glaring 911 anomalies and the manufactured "threat" from a shattered Iraq, also neglected to report the Soviet governments ban on "microwaves" - which were by then taking over cooking chores in nine out of ten American homes.
Unlike the direct radiant heat from regular ovens and toaster ovens - which cook food like a Paleolithic campfire from the outside in - space age microwave ovens hurl high-frequency microwaves that boil the moisture within food and its packaging by whipsawing water molecules dizzyingly back-and-forth at more than a billion reversals per second.. This frenetic friction fractures food molecules, rearranging their chemical composition into weird new configurations unrecognizable as food by human bodies - which tend to react as if confronted by terrorists wearing grotesque masks.
Eating molecularly-molested foods alters your blood chemistry, too.
Hows this for microwave magic: Eat your organic veggies zapped by microwaves and send your cholesterol soaring! As noted in my previous article, "Cooked", Swiss scientist Hertel harrumphs: "Blood cholesterol levels are less influenced by cholesterol content of the food than by stress factors" in non-fat microwaved foods.
Reporting for the Forensic Research Document of AREC Research, William P. Kopp now states: "The effects of microwaved food by-products are long term, permanent within the human body. Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down."
Dr. Mercola concurs: "Recent research shows that microwave oven-cooked food suffers severe molecular damage. When eaten, it causes abnormal changes in human blood and immune systems. Not surprisingly the public has been denied details on these significant health dangers " [www.mercola.com]
Here's a fun experiment you can do at home: Plant seeds in two pots. Water one pot with water nuked in a microwave; the other with "normal" filtered tap water. Surprise! The seeds soaking up microwaved water won't sprout.
Everything you wanted to know about the fluoride in our food:
Soy: Is it Healthy or is it Harmful?
By Dr. Joseph Mercola with Rachael Droege
In recent years soy has emerged as a near perfect food, with supporters claiming it can provide an ideal source of protein, lower cholesterol, protect against cancer and heart disease, reduce menopause symptoms, and prevent osteoporosis, among other things. But how did such a perfect food emerge from a product that in 1913 was listed in the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) handbook not as a food but as an industrial product?
According to lipid specialist and nutritionist Mary Enig, PhD, "The reason theres so much soy in America is because they [the soy industry] started to plant soy to extract the oil from it and soy oil became a very large industry. Once they had as much oil as they did in the food supply they had a lot of soy protein residue left over, and since they cant feed it to animals, except in small amounts, they had to find another market."
And another market was what they found. To put it simply, after multi-million dollar figures spent on advertising and intense lobbying to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), about 74 percent of U.S. consumers now believe soy products are healthy.
If youre thinking the health claims surrounding soy sound too good to be true you just may be right. Soy has become another misunderstood food category, to be added to the ranks of coconut oil, saturated fats and vegetable oils. The two former have gained a negative reputation where a good one actually applies, but vegetable oil, along with soy, have emerged with sparkling reputations that cover up the truth.
For just a brief look at whats really going on, consider that numerous studies have found that soy products may:
Increase the risk of breast cancer in women, brain damage in both men and women, and abnormalities in infants
Contribute to thyroid disorders, especially in women
Promote kidney stones
Weaken the immune system
Cause severe, potentially fatal food allergies
Soy products also contain:
Phytoestrogens (isoflavones) genistein and daidzein, which mimic and sometimes block the hormone estrogen
Phytates, which block the body's uptake of minerals
Enzyme Inhibitors, which hinder protein digestion
Haemaggluttin, which causes red blood cells to clump together and inhibits oxygen take-up and growth
Further, most soybeans are grown on farms that use toxic pesticides and herbicides, and many are from genetically engineered plants. When you consider that two-thirds of all manufactured food products contain some form of soy, it becomes clear just how many Americans are consuming GM products, whose long-term effects are completely unknown.
Perhaps the most disturbing of soys ill effects on health has to do with its phytoestrogens that can mimic the effects of the female hormone estrogen. These phytoestrogens have been found to have adverse effects on various human tissues, and drinking even two glasses of soy milk daily for one month has enough of the chemical to alter a womans menstrual cycle. The FDA regulates estrogen-containing products, however no warnings exist on soy. Two senior toxicologists with the FDA. Daniel Sheehan and Daniel Doerge, have even come out saying "The public will be put at potential risk from soy isoflavones in soy protein isolate without adequate warning and information." Soy is particularly problematic for infants, and soy infant formulas should be avoided. It has been estimated that infants who are fed soy formula exclusively receive five birth control pills worth of estrogen every day.
There are some redeeming qualities to soy, however these are found primarily in fermented soy products like tempeh, miso and natto and soybean sprouts. If you want to get some health benefits from soy, stick to these four forms and pass up the processed soy milks, soy burgers, soy ice cream, soy cheese, and the myriad of other soy junk foods that are so readily disguised as health foods.
ExxonMobil a Graver Threat Than Terrorism
By David Swanson
t r u t h o u t | Perspective
Thursday 08 April 2004
Global warming is a far bigger threat than global terrorism, according to Tony Blair's chief scientific advisor, David King. Global warming is likely to lead to economic catastrophe and wars over diminished resources according to a report commissioned by that group of flaming liberals, the U.S. Department of Defense.
The unelected president of the United States, following the lead of ExxonMobil, denies the danger of global warming - just as disgruntled insiders say he did with al Qaeda. The vast majority of Americans think corporations have too much influence in their government and that the environment should be a bigger priority. This issue is hot and not going away. Are you listening, Senator Kerry?
Those of us who want to slow global warming should have two goals right now. One is to pressure Kerry to make shifting toward renewable energies a prominent focus and to help Kerry get elected. Protecting the environment should not be presented in political discussion as a side benefit of reducing dependence on foreign oil or of an initiative to create new jobs and develop new technologies, though it can be both. Rather, the goal of ending global warming should be given the priority that, in retrospect, preventing an attack by al Qaeda should have had in the presidential election of 2000. This threat is far more serious and far better known, and the incumbent's position on it is clearly opposed to that of most Americans. And I see no reason why Kerry cannot make standing up to the agenda of ExxonMobil look sufficiently macho to fit the image his advisors believe he must maintain.
Our second goal should, in fact, be hurting and influencing the ExxonMobil corporation. This company does not just represent the worst in the history of American monopolies. It is not just the company responsible for the largest oil spill in history, which it has neither cleaned up nor paid for - as documented in a recent Nation magazine article. ExxonMobil is not just the largest oil company on the planet, doing more than any other to create global warming through the burning of fossil fuels. ExxonMobil is not just a company dedicated to continuing its exclusive focus on oil, steadfastly resisting any diversification into less harmful energy sources.
More importantly, ExxonMobil is the leading funder of bogus science and disingenuous lobbying aimed at convincing government officials, if not the public, that global warming - like evolution - is "only a theory." ExxonMobil spends millions on misleading propaganda every year and has led the way in sabotaging international attempts to address this crisis. ExxonMobil was one of George W. Bush's chief contributors, and he announced that the US would abandon international agreements to address global warming as soon as, although not before, he was in office.
The leading public interest group pressuring ExxonMobil to change its ways is, of course, not our government. It's Greenpeace. Greenpeace, like ExxonMobil, is international, and the activist group has been putting pressure on ExxonMobil around the world through a variety of creative strategies. In May 2002, Greenpeace released this devastating report on ExxonMobil's junk science and political influence.
Greenpeace began campaigning with the goal of forcing ExxonMobil to support the Kyoto treaty aimed at reducing fossil fuel emissions. In May of 2003, Greenpeace volunteers staged a colorful protest at ExxonMobil headquarters in Irving, Texas, that included several tiger costumes, a poster displayed from the roof, and blocked entrances preventing employees from reporting to work. The protesters believed they were engaged in nonviolent civil disobedience for the sake of the planet their children and grandchildren would live on.
Things turned ugly when police assaulted and pepper sprayed the activists before arresting them and holding them for two days in jail. Things turned surprisingly worse when they charged 36 people with felony counts of rioting and/or engaging in criminal activity. And just in case that didn't deter people who care about the future of their world from speaking out, a Texas judge granted ExxonMobil a nationwide temporary injunction against Greenpeace, preventing Greenpeace activists from demonstrating near any property in the United States with the ExxonMobil logo on it.
This case, which is still pending, is part of a disturbing trend of heightened criminalization of free speech and public protest, which also includes the U.S. Justice Department's prosecution of the entire Greenpeace organization in retaliation for a peaceful protest by two Greenpeace activists who boarded a ship smuggling illegal mahogany from Brazil's Amazon rainforest. The statute being used by John Ashcroft's agency in that case had previously not been heard of for more than a century.
While Greenpeace's hands are tied, I'd like to propose that the rest of us help out. Go to www.dontbuyexxonmobil.org and sign up for the newsletter and download the activist kit. Stop buying gas or anything else from ExxonMobil. Hold teach-ins, and stage demonstrations at Exxon gas stations encouraging people not to stop there for gas. Do so now, because ExxonMobil is looking around for a new CEO. Whether the company decides it needs a CEO willing to join the 21st century may depend on whether we make our voices heard. Whether ExxonMobil changes its ways may significantly impact what the Earth looks like at the end of the 21st century.
NANOFIBERS BEING MISUSED IN CHEMTRAILS
Posted By: EarthGrid <Send E-Mail
Date: Sunday, 28 March 2004, 7:13 p.m.
Something has gone terribly wrong with the technology of nanofibers. Normally, nanofibers are the used for all sorts of good products, such as Nanogen, to make hair look thicker (http://www.nanogen.co.uk/nanofibres.htm).
However, someone has decided to make highly-static nanoscale fibers as thin as 1 micron,
and blow chunks of 'em all over your kids at school. Take a look at these:
Please take a full day to check all the "dots" above (i.e. links), and there is no other conclusion than: these nanofibers are a bioengineered weapon being sprayed on us against our will. If this is legal, can you tell me WHY it is legal to kill us and call it "collateral damage"? Better yet, let's make a commercial like the ones that thetruth.org do, with the mannequins on the street, and blowing the air horn every 8 seconds. Except this time, maybe use some spray string as a visual aid.
Now how in the world are these nanofibers made? Good question!
Someone please explain the physical objects involving these phrases?
"ENCAPSULATED ADVANCED CONTROLLED DELIVERY SYSTEMS" "ADVANCED MONOLITHIC DISPERSION DIFFUSION SYSTEMS"
Let's see, let's keep spouting off scientific phrases to people in charge until we get the phrase right. Let's
catalytic chemical vapor deposition (CCVD)?
A-HA! Electrospinning! Why didn't we think of that before? It's only been around since it was invented back around 1930.
Let's see: we're gonna need an example of a company making nanofibers: http://www.espintechnologies.com/products.htm
See those fibers? They can be made at least as small as 300nm. Let's add nanofibers to the 100X magnification photos at carnicom.com's site. Wanna bet those same kind of fibers can be added to chemtrails?
Now "they"... (you know how people ask: "who's THEY?" anyway...) when THEY get up in those KC-135s or flying, morphing cube sprayers, what do you say they incorporated a mobile electrospinning process that creates highly static nanofibers, and adds it to the extra-fat contrails?
But you say, "how do you know this electrospinning process can be mobile?"
Simple: look at this report from NASA itself:
"The electrospinning set-up was completely self-contained and MOBILE."
See? Imagine that you're a commander in the military. What better weapon to use than a mobile electrospinning process? The vapor deposition process (CCVD) appears to use too-large a machine, so that's probably not used. The laser ablation idea is kind of neat, too... You could always outfit a flying craft with THAT...
No we're not crazy. We're angry. People out there have rashes with fibers in their lips, arms, and legs. No, doctor! Don't call it "scabies". Not this time pal. Let's talk electrospinning and polymer nanofibers first. Don't call it excessive tire wear on the roads. Wrong answer, man. What's wrong, doctor? Cat got your tongue? Can't talk about electrospinning and nanofibers now? Please, doctor, don't lie to me when you tell me what it is that you pulled from my lip.
We're getting closer to the answer, and the people with the "stupid" fibers in their lips are getting closer to the truth. Believe me, they're calling them more than just "stupid". Even if you are a skeptic, once you take a look at these links and look at the fibers, there's no way any human can deny that these fibers are being used as a weapon against us. If you think that's wrong, please tell it to the people with fibers fish-hooked into their lips. Please, do that first before yelling at the messenger. And don't use the phrase "collateral damage" with them.
I'm looking forward to a "Morgellons" commercial on TV. You won't soon forget it.
The Weather Liars
By Diane Harvey
It has been an astonishing transformation, of the utmost significance. But we never, ever, hear or read about it in the news. Over the last few years, the skies over the American southwest have changed beyond recognition. The famous dazzling blue sky of yesteryear has become, as often as not, sickly pale ugly sludge. This is as shocking a difference as if the surrounding landscape had slowly turned black, while the human inhabitants remained bizarrely oblivious.
There are still clear days, but these are numerically becoming the exception. And this has happened nearly without public comment, in a part of the world where sunny bright blue skies most of the year have been the rule for centuries. But the slow sure rip in the elemental fabric of our lives has not gone entirely unsung. Our so-called weather reports have been carefully rewritten, as ever more strained variations on the theme of Partly Cloudy. Day after day, we are treated to absurd contortions along the lines of partly cloudy, mostly cloudy, mostly sunny, partly sunny, and probably-mostly-partly-sort-of-sunny-and-cloudy. And how is it that the meteorologists can confidently predict this same once highly unlikely forecast for weeks ahead of time? The answer is obvious: because these particular partly cloudy clouds are not clouds at all.
As I write this, normal air traffic is coming and going as always, leaving no distinguishing characteristics in its wake, as usual. But in addition, closely laid out bands of fake contrails are slithering inexorably up from the south. Easily seen with good binoculars, several large unmarked planes methodically plow back and forth, depositing greasy white streams of toxic chemicals across the face of the morning. Giant X,s appear here and there, oozing fatly outward in slow motion. Before my eyes, each of these trails swells and expands, until they begin to merge in the sky-wide stew of chemtrail brew. Another fresh beautiful day has been successfully murdered: suffocated under the clandestine chemical shroud.
The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, but no information is forthcoming as to the factual nature of the secret swill that makes it nearly always only mostly sunny. And as usual lately, the weather forecast is already miraculously perfectly predicted for the next couple of weeks. We are forewarned and know exactly what to expect in the days to come. Here is the typical grimly ironic twaddle promising extensive spraying ahead: "mostly sunny, mostly clear, mostly sunny, mostly clear, mostly sunny, mostly clear, mostly sunny, partly cloudy, partly cloudy, partly cloudy, mostly sunny, partly cloudy and- wait for it- partly cloudy. Such is the ever-repeating litany of sky-lies masquerading as the local weather report.
Meteorologists and weather forecasters have always enjoyed the absolute confidence of the public. We would never have imagined that such respected authorities would offer preposterous fabrications to the public on a daily basis. Who could ever have thought that those we innocently entrust with accurately reporting our weather would become hardened liars as a matter of routine? Such a betrayal of our belief was practically inconceivable. Of course, many people had a hard time believing that a large number of priests were routinely abusing children and lying about it too. Many people have trouble with imagining all sorts of horrendous activities that turn out to be going on all around us all the time. Our credulity, intellectual inertia and blind faith in authorities have allowed the rise of a culture of professionally networked liars on all fronts. The profound failings of an intrinsically unethical civilization have generated innumerable painful awakenings, and we,re not done yet.
Meteorologists consider themselves members in good standing of the secular priesthood of science. Their obedient mouth organs, the media,s weather forecasters, also do not seem to lack self-esteem. Yet none of these self-regarding professionals see any problem in refusing to mention the most visible anomalous activity in our skies. If the seas turned bright red, we might suppose that oceanographers would notice, and immediately report the astounding fact to the public. But no professionally trained eye ever mentions the alarming and frequent spectacle of aerosol operations going on in our atmosphere. Are the so-called priests of science so terrified of truth that they manage to subconsciously blind themselves to the blatantly obvious?
Such a widespread perceptual failure on the part of the paid, impossible at it seems, has at least to be briefly considered. Because a fascinating study some years ago from the University of Southern California concluded that most individuals would indeed refuse to so much as entertain a fact, no matter how self-evidently true that fact was, if believing it would directly affect their income. And from rude experience we may extrapolate to include among the deniers of reality: all those whose self-image and belief system is fanatically welded to the prevailing social fabric of cheap tricks, fake standards, and prevailing prevarications.
The only other possibility for the increasing predilection for fantasy forecasting is that the so-called professionals know perfectly well what is happening in our atmosphere, and are deliberately peddling stupendous lies. There are only two equally deplorable possibilities here. However unlikely it seems, perhaps the paid professionals and amateur weather aficionados are actually a group mysteriously composed only of those people unaccountably devoid of normal perceptual faculties. Maybe they really do manage to believe their own blithering blathercasts, although this seems preposterous on the face of it, even for them. The other, far more rational assumption is that they all know exactly what they are doing and tell these terrible untruths consciously and by design. Either way, the ritual abuse of public trust in honest weather reporting is now absolute.
Compulsive weather liars only have a couple of ways to try to maintain their specious nonsense. The favored ploy is to categorically refuse to address the issue of shockingly obvious atmospheric operations at all. The very people who pride themselves on being scientists, pledged to examine evidence impartially on behalf of the human race- will never, under any circumstances whatsoever, go anywhere near the tell-tale evidence. Neither will any other of the weather professionals in our society. This should not surprise us unduly however, since upholding a lie as big as all outdoors must be quite a draining occupation. Maintaining industrial-strength levels of hypocrisy throughout the length and breadth of once-respectable professions might very well be causing serious wear and tear. Many of the less aggressive types would naturally prefer not talk about it at all, under the humiliating circumstances.
Although liars come in many colors, a basic yellow streak always shows through. The average garden-variety weather reporter or meteorologist uses the affable brick wall technique, applying a cement-like paste of stultifying faux-scientific stupidity to all rational inquiry. Many other weather liars avoid dealing with actively concerned members of the breathing public by sneering automatically and maniacally at any incoming questions. The vicious sort of weather liar believes that the force of sheer personality ugliness ought to impress concerned citizens in lieu of reasoning. But this type, given to hysterical and disfiguring antics in order to avoid discussing anything even resembling reality, needn,t expect to generate real confusion. Informed people simply observe the moral self-mutilation of weather authorities with pity and amazement. Some of the more determined citizens even wait patiently for the froth of sputtering spittle to dry, and then once again politely offer to discuss the facts of atmospheric life. But dancing with frightened, well-schooled and determined liars is a sophisticated sport, not for everyone, and most of us will never wish for practice to make us perfect. Those who sweat it out slinging lies for a living know this about us, and therefore will never stop lying. Lying is by far the easiest way out of dealing with uncomfortable facts for those whose conscience is as yet but a feeble thing, easily disposed of. The unprincipled therefore readily become practiced liars, as a substitute for the more arduous path of becoming practicing humans.
We live in a culture where power precariously supports itself by relying on a tissue of denial and lies, so closely interwoven that the intellectually lazy never even see it. Just as most people still don,t even notice that the sky above has gone from a heavenly blue to a hell of anemic whitish-gray. One has to wonder what magnitude of extreme alteration in the natural environment the average consumer will require, in order to perceive any change in the surroundings at all. And within the network of hypocrisy, those who do honestly admit to themselves what is going on carefully examine on which side their bread is buttered- before bravely declining all comment. When it comes to so-called authorities, the relationship between abject cowardice, absence of all ethics, and perpetual lying is a very straight line connecting three shabby dots.
In any healthy and wholesome society, the habitual liar is rightly looked on as an embarrassment to humanity. While constant lying has never been criminalized per se, since being pathetic is its own punishment, lies that adversely affect other people,s lives are another story. History books are replete with gruesome examples of groups of social liars, their inevitable exposure, and the scathing commentary of subsequent generations. It is true that history excels in revealing past injustice in great and satisfying detail. Yet eventual unmasking of the forgers of sky lies is cold comfort for those whose well being is adversely affected in the present. Neither can the appearance of revealing truth at a later time do any good whatsoever to parents helplessly watching their children suffer in the here and now.
The great glaring fact about the weather is that our atmosphere is being chemically reconditioned right before our eyes, in broad daylight, and each and every one of our weather forecasters is resolutely lying about it. Of course, despite wholesale obfuscation, we are still perfectly free to look outside and investigate what is going on over our heads for ourselves. So should we really mind then that weather reports have become purpose-built acts of science fiction? Why should we care that professional weather forecasters have defaulted on their public duty? We can see the reality for ourselves, in this case as in so many others. In this business of lying whenever their lips are moving, the weather mongers have merely caught up to politicians, military spokespersons, major media sewer outlets, and other full-time enthusiastic cheerleaders for infinite secrecy, world-class lies, and the demise of our Republic.
The truth is that we should all care very much about the truth. It is a primary responsibility to care about being lied to, by any kind of authority, no matter who is doing it or why. We should mind a great deal whenever anyone with any degree of responsibility for the welfare of the public, and the welfare of our Republic, consistently, remorselessly and interminably lies to us. We should certainly never blandly accept the ongoing dark comedy act called a weather report these days, as if it is simply another new form of misapplied creativity. It is not. Lying about what is happening to and in our atmosphere is an unprecedented assault on the entire body politic, and a violent violation of the public trust that must not go unchallenged.
Throughout human history, calling anyone a liar has always been a serious indictment. Civilized human beings have never employed this brutal epithet causally. Lying is, and has always been considered, such a vile act that the average person was careful not to accuse anyone of it without just cause. Logically, there must be many people in different groups and professions involved in trying to confuse the populace about what is really happening to our atmosphere. Ongoing propaganda has been carefully constructed for maximum impact on several fronts. Moreover, disguising the abysmal fact of continuing toxic aerosol operations in our skies is only one of many grotesque deceptions underway. But let us never forget the uniquely disgraceful role meteorologists and weather reporters play in all this, as the middlemen and midwives of deliberate fundamental confusion. Our ridiculous weather cartoons are delivered to us in cold blood, precisely in order to mislead as many of us as possible. And lying to the public about something as crucial to our existence as what we are all breathing constitutes a pathological misuse of power. These wretched examples of authority have willingly traded all vestiges of honor for the sake of regular paychecks. They live for now by means of lying through their teeth to the very people who have trusted them absolutely. But then perhaps they have not yet understood that the sure and certain result of their betrayal will be their undying shame.
Rapid growth of "dead zones" in oceans threatens planet
Mon Mar 29,12:04 AM ET
JEJU, South Korea, (AFP) - The spread of oxygen-starved "dead zones" in the oceans, a graveyard for fish and plant life, is emerging as a threat to the health of the planet, experts say.
For hundreds of millions of people who depend on seas and oceans for their livelihoods, and for many more who rely on a diet of fish and seafood to survive, the problem is acute.
Some of the oxygen-deprived zones are relatively small, less than one square kilometre (0.4 square miles) in size. Others are vast, measuring more than 70,000 square kilometres.
Pollution, particularly the overuse of nitrogen in fertilizers, is responsible for the spread of dead zones, environment ministers and experts from more than 100 countries were told.
The number of known oxygen-starved areas has doubled since 1990 to nearly 150, according to the UN Environmental Program (UNEP), holding is annual conference here.
"What is clear is that unless urgent action is taken to tackle the sources of the problem, it is likely to escalate rapidly," UNEP executive director Klaus Toepfer said.
"Hundreds of millions of people depend on the marine environment for food, for their livelihoods and for their cultural fulfilment."
The world at present gets 17 percent of its animal protein from fish, UN figures show.
That supply is now endangered on at least two fronts: overfishing that has depleted stocks in recent decades and now the challenge of widening dead zones.
The issue was identified as a key emerging problem in the Global Environment Year Book 2003, a health report on the planet released at the start of the UNEP's three-day conference that concludes Wednesday.
The spread of low-level oxygen zones in seas and oceans, identified as early as in the1960s, is closely related to the overuse of fertilizers in agriculture, whose main ingredient is nitrogen.
On land, nitrogen boosts plant growth. But when it washes into the sea in rivers and rainwater overrun, it triggers an explosive bloom of algae.
When these tiny plants growing on the ocean surface sink to the bottom and decompose, they use up all the oxygen and suffocate other marine life.
Fossil fuel waste from motor vehicles and power plants increases nitrogen content in oceans.
With oxygen depletion, fish, oysters and other marine life eventually die out along with important habitats such as sea grass beds.
Relatively large zones are found in the Gulf of Mexico, the Chesapeake Bay off the US East Coast, the Baltic and Black seas, and parts of the Adriatic.
Others have appeared off South America, Japan, China, Australia and New Zealand. Some zones are permanent, while other occur annually or intermittently.
Most of the 160 million tonnes of nitrogen used as fertiliser annually ends up in the sea.
UNEP said efforts should focus on cutting back on overuse of nitrogen to bring the seas back to life.
With a joint accord, European states within the Rhine River basin successfully cut the amount of nitrogen entering the North Sea by 37 percent between 1985 and 2000, it said.
The UNEP advocates planting of more forests and grasslands to soak up excess nitrogen and better sewage treatment.
Its conference is the first ever held in Asia with more than 100 ministers and high-level officials attending from 155 countries.
The dangers of Grains and Sugars
How to Stay Healthy While Working in an Office--Six Important Tips
By Dr. Joseph Mercola with Rachael Droege
Its no secret that Americans are working long hours, many of them spent in offices and in front of computers. While these long hours may pay off in a business sense, you may find that the strain is taking a toll on your health.
You may not be able to avoid spending more than one-third of your day in the office, but you can certainly make an effort to stay healthy while youre there. Here are some quick tips that will not only improve your day, but also they will protect your body and mind from long-term damage that can accumulate from those long hours at work.
Even if its for a quick walk at lunch or a stroll around the building during a break, taking some time to get outside is an important part of the day. This activity will keep your body from becoming fatigued and will give you a brief change of scenery. It is also an excellent way to make sure you are getting some vitamin D from the sun.
Make Sure You Have a Decent Chair
Ideally, your chair should be ergonomic and adjustable for height, back angle and height, seat angle and have adjustable arms. This will help you to control your posture and will put you at a proper distance from your desk without your having to strain or stretch to reach your computer keyboard. Unfortunately, ergonomically designed chairs can be expensive--they typically start at around $200.
Another option is to use an exercise ball for a chair. While this may sound strange at first, it is actually an excellent way to strengthen your muscles and keep you active while you work. An exercise ball (in an appropriate size that allows your thighs to be parallel with the floor) will help you to maintain proper posture and give you freedom of movement. Plus, the small movements that your body will continually make while sitting on a ball can improve circulation and help relieve some of the pressures of gravity.
But no matter what your chair, dont cross your legs and dont slouch.
Protect Your Eyes
Eye strain is a major concern among many computer users. Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) is the term used to describe eye and vision problems linked to extended computer use. Symptoms range from dry, irritated or sore eyes to headaches and blurred vision.
The best way to combat this is to take frequent breaks from looking at your screen. You should look away from your screen and focus on a distant object for at least 20 seconds once an hour. And dont wait until your eyes are fatigued to start. The idea is to give your eyes enough rest so that they dont become strained in the first place.
To best protect your eyes your computer monitor should be about an arms length away--and be sure there is no glare on your screen that makes you squint to see the words. The monitor should be at eye level or slightly below so that you are looking just slightly down at the screen.
Finally, if possible invest in a flat screen monitor. The higher quality and sharper images of these screens is easier on the eyes.
Add Plants to Your Workspace
Offices are typically stuffy with little fresh or flowing air. Adding plants can actually improve the air quality in your office. Studies have shown that indoor plants reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as benzene and hexane, which are known to be toxic to humans at high levels, by up to 100 percent over 24 hours in a closed environment.
Not only that, but having a bit of nature indoors will likely do a great deal for your sense of overall well-being, and adding plants is an inexpensive way to brighten your workspace.
The lighting in your office can influence everything from your mood to the glare on your computer screen. If possible, try to have some natural light from a window. If this is not possible, and even if it is, you may want to install some full-spectrum light bulbs.
It is VERY important to know that the only valid full-spectrum lights are fluorescent lights. Incandescent neodymium bulbs frequently advertised for under $10 are NOT full spectrum. They are color corrected and will NOT provide the same benefits.
The newer full spectrum bulbs are compact fluorescents and can screw in a normal fixture. They have an electronic ballast and have much less electromagnetic field radiation. They are costly though and typically run about $30 to $40 a bulb. Over the years though they do return on the investment as they consume about 80 percent less electricity for the same amount of light.
Full-spectrum lights are beneficial because they will help to compensate for the loss of sun on your skin, which can boost your mood and your health--especially during the darker days of winter.
Correct Your Keyboard Setup
Using a computer involves frequent repetitive movements that can lead to repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome. If you type 60 words a minute, youll be making 21,600 key strokes an hour so its easy to see how the stress can add up. Symptoms can range from mild stiffness to severe pain.
To minimize the risk of such injuries, make sure that your hands and wrists are in a neutral position at the keyboard and try to keep your wrists straight and your elbows at right angles. Also make a point to type lightly. Theres no need to press the keys with much force, and this will reduce the strain on your hands, fingers and wrists.
Compulsive Computer Use Growing
Compulsive computer use is becoming more common, US researchers report. And people who spend excessive amounts of time glued to computer screens surfing the Web, talking in chat rooms and playing games often show signs of personality disorders.
There is a growing number who have a problem with excessive and problematic computer use. These people have a hard time controlling their computer use and give the impression of being 'addicted' to their computer, causing all types of problems in their work, personal and social life.
Researchers believe the condition is widespread since they had no trouble finding such people, and most of them had other emotional problems -- identifiable mood or anxiety disorders, substance abuse or personality disorders. In a study of 16 men and 5 women who spent an average of 27 hours a week of their free time in front of a computer, Black and his colleagues found that many compulsive computer users feel happy, excited or powerful when using computers. Most admitted, however, that their screen time had interfered with family, friends, work or school.
About one third of compulsive users who had tried to cut back at one time or another said that spending less time in front of the computer made them feel anxious. The typical subject of our study was a 32-year old man with a college degree and an average income of about $27,000, who had been compulsively using his computer for 3 years. According to the results of several different types of psychological tests, the compulsive computer users had a high rate of mental disorders, especially mood and personality disorders, and drug and alcohol problems. For example, 52% of the people in the study had at least one personality disorder, the investigators found.
In contrast, just 12% of subjects in a community-wide survey had at least one personality disorder. The impact of compulsive computer use is not readily apparent, however, since many of its consequences (e.g., social isolation, marital discord, and financial problems) remain out of the public's view. More work will help pin down its risk factors, psychiatric comorbidity, family history, psychosocial consequences, and natural history.
13 pesticides in body of average American
By MARTIN MITTELSTAEDT
From Friday's Globe and Mail
POSTED AT 7:33 AM EDT
A comprehensive survey of more than 1,300 Americans has found traces of weed- and bug-killers in the bodies of everyone tested, leading environmentalists in both Canada and the United States to call for far tighter controls on pesticides.
The survey, conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, found that the body of the average American contained 13 of these chemicals.
A surprising finding was that 99 per cent of Americans, including virtually all children born in recent years, had DDT residues. The use of the insecticide has been subject to controls and outright bans since the late 1960s, and its presence indicates how persistent it is in the general environment.
More than half of those tested also had residues of 2,4-D. The lawn herbicide is controversial in Canada, where its use has been targeted by dozens of municipal bans on the cosmetic use of herbicides.
The finding of widespread pesticide exposure suggests that, despite the trend to the increased consumption of organic food and intense regulation of the pesticide industry, the U.S. public is routinely coming into contact with these substances through the environment and food.
"The fact that Americans are carrying a mixture of toxic pesticides suggests a dramatic failure of government efforts in the U.S. to protect public health and safety," contended Andrea Peart, a spokesperson for the Sierra Club of Canada.
Health authorities in Canada have done no comparable survey on the amount of pesticides in Canadians. A spokeswoman for Health Canada, Catherine Saunders, says the agency relies on the U.S. data to estimate what Canadians may have in their bodies.
She said Health Canada is currently proposing to have some pesticide measurements done as part of a Statistics Canada survey on the health of Canadians, but that research won't be available until 2006-2007.
Without detailed studies, there is no way of knowing if Canadians are as heavily contaminated as Americans, or have lower amounts of pesticides in their bodies. "I think the logical question . . . is are we going to find these same results in Canada?" said Ms. Peart.
The levels of pesticides found in Americans were generally small. The DDT residues were detected in parts per billion, with the highest readings in women. Women generally have more fatty tissue than men and DDT is stored in fat.
But environmentalists have raised concerns that some residues exceed safety standards. Pesticide Action Network North America analyzed the U.S. exposure data and determined that for two insecticides -- chlorpyrifos and methyl parathion -- exposures exceeded acceptable thresholds, in one case, by more than four times the amount recommended for children.
Canadian health authorities believe Canadians may have smaller amounts of the two compounds in their bodies.
Health Canada has been concerned by chlorpyrifos exposure in children, and banned residential uses of the insecticide in 2001 for this reason, according to Chris Krepski, a spokesman for Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency. However, the pesticide is still in widespread use on food crops.
Chlorpyrifos is in a class of pesticides known as organophosphates, over which there is considerable concern about potential health effects. Organophosphates disrupt nerve impulses and some research suggests they may harm brain development.
Although the PMRA has banned the use of the product around homes, Canadians could still have exposures because chlorpyrifos can be used on 30 crops, including wheat, peaches and strawberries. The crop list in Canada is generally the same as in the United States.
Methyl parathion is used heavily in the United States to kill insects on cotton crops, but is not licensed for use in Canada.
A recent study of over 1,300 Americans found widespread evidence of pesticides in their systems. Below are some pesticides and the percentage of those tested in whom they were found.
TCP or chlorpyrifos
Licensed for agricultural use in Canada, but was recently banned for use around homes: 93%
Active ingredient in most lawn herbicides; subject to bans in many Canadian municipalities: 55%
A breakdown product of DDT; persists in people's bodies despite having been banned for decades: 99%
Accordingly to declassified documents secured during the invasion of Germany, the idea and first implementation of the microwave frequencies to be considered as a useful tool for cooking came about in Nazi Germany prior to the beginning of the second world war. It was being investigated as a quick alternative to more conventional methods in use for cooking to large contingents of mobile troops. Their research pointed out with the models they constructed, that several undesirable things occurred. The test subjects, both human and animal quickly became wrought with a number of physical ailments. Small animals such as the rats they used had considerably shortened life spans and very frequently developed a number of cancers. The humans had more damage to their internal organs noticed during the autopsies that those of other people of similar size and characteristics. Because these early ovens were very high powered units in comparison to those in use today the effects became much more accentuated in a shorter time due to the increased amount of microwaves being directed into the food.
Their conclusion was that microwaves would be useful for weapons, communications and other applications but for cooking it would substantially reduce the effectiveness and strength of their troops in the field in a short time. And they decided not to use them for cooking on their own troops. Curiously, this same information was also gathered by the Russians during the invasion. They did similar experiments and their reaction........they were banned form being sold or used in the Soviet Union until 1977. Now the government there at that time was not as considerate of the people's health in general from an outsiders observation yet they still were fully cognizant of the German research and would not allow the disastrous effects from their widespread use to take place in their country.
Yet in America, they were just starting to gain a foothold in the cooking appliance industry and slowly became more prevalent as people were brainwashed to accept them without question as for their safety and quickness. Coincidentally, some of the major companies involved in the early American models being produced, noticed within a short time the trend this was taking place. Statistics began to show in less than 10 years from when the observations were being made, there was a large rise in the cancer rate, abdominal, intestinal, stomach, liver, kidney disorders, diminished hearing capacities, and disruptions with the optic nerves resulting in an many vision related problems. This was not overlooked by the profit motive that drives the medical industry who quickly gave their endorsements for their safety and use in studies entirely sponsored by the equipment manufacturers. Who in turn began investing heavily in the medical industry as they saw that the number of infirmities and disorders was increasing substantially with the exponential rise in the use of microwaves. Ever wonder why cell phone use is being so heavily promoted now? There are a number of very similar underlying reasons as to why.
So we have two seemingly unrelated industries who own a lot of stock with each other. And why? Because one makes a piece of equipment that effectively erodes a persons health over time which generates more and more sick people. And these sick individuals are then given various pharmaceuticals, operated on, etc. from disease conditions caused by or boosted from the microwave influx. It is a circular system of mutual profit built upon the demise of the populace's health.
In Switzerland, a brilliant researcher conducted many carefully controlled tests of the before and after effects of using microwave ovens for cooking. Without exception, every person and animal used showed varying degrees of damage to their health when they began eating exclusively microwaved food. When he published his results with much substantiation to back up his claims he was sued by companies who made and promoted the use of these ovens. The case went all the way the Swiss Supreme Court equivalent..........They upheld his claims finding that he presented a significant amount of proof to back up what he was saying as being valid and ruled in his favor much to the displeasure of the microwave manufacturers and promoters. His research included careful studies which showed numerous instances of cellular damage and other imbalances caused by the ingestion of microwaved foods. MICROWAVES CREATE LARGE AMOUNTS OF FREE RADICALS IN ALL FOODS SUBJECTED TO THEIR INFLUENCE. As a consequence, they quickly hasten the malfunctioning of ones health due to the detrimental waveforms that occur as a result of being oscillated by microwaves.
Russian researchers used various techniques and Kirlian type aura photographic equipment. Rapid pulse imaging devices employing lasers to be responsive to wide range infrared and short to long range ultraviolet waves were also utilized. These would produce an image on a CRT screen of what form and characteristic the ultraviolet or infrared appeared around an object or living being. Different kinds of foods were selected in repeated tests. Pulse imaging showed considerable reductions in ultraviolet emissions in foods after being microwaved. The remaining emissions of UV in comparison to before, contained various sharp spikes in the UV image which weren't present previously. This caused the images to appear out of proportion from the spikes that showed up.
While certain bandwidths remained in the infrared range afterwards because of heating from microwave agitation, many vanished completely which didn't happen in conventionally cooked foods in comparison. The findings were that with increased microwave influences on foods the more pronounced these patterns of spikes, distortions emanating from various portions of the occurred. Their conclusions were that various bandwidths in the infrared and ultraviolet spectrum regions correspond to the vitality or life field equivalent in living things. Microwaves diminished or eliminated large portions of the parts of the spectrum in UV and IF that indicated vitality or life force. sugars were altered, enzymes were destroyed, minerals in foods didn't assimilate or absorb as well in people tested.
Vitamins were rendered useless or minimally effective from the disruptions caused by microwave exposures. And last but not least...........Kirlian type photos showed grungy looking brown and blackish auras around foods permeating and surrounding the food. I gave one the distinct impression that the food would not be very good for one's health to ingest and could contribute to and accentuate health problems considerably.
Just a few years ago an independent researcher in Japan, Mr. Emoto, began taking pictures of water crystals from water subjected to different influences including certain words or statements. These would alter the structure of the water which was evidenced by the varying crystals being produced. When water was microwaved, then flash frozen and examined under a microscope, they looked for the ice crystals that formed and what shape they took. In comparison to many other influences which showed well formed distinctly defined water crystals after being exposed, froze and then photographed, microwaved water made highly distorted, very poorly defined, imbalanced looking crystals and this happened repeatedly. And if you consider this alone it has got to make you wonder about how detrimental such distorted water would be to your health.
Unfortunately, many people don't know this and probably wouldn't believe it because they've bought the controlled viewpoint which is bought and paid for propaganda. This propaganda was generated by those who make large profits from equipment sales and in the medical health industry. It tells them to relay to the public that microwaves are safe to use or they would have heard different on the news or somewhere by now that they were bad and since they haven't they won't believe anything to the contrary. And so they drink dead and distorted microwaved water daily not knowing how constantly devitalizing and life reducing it is to do so. This information is not widely disseminated over the major media and made enthusiastically available for reading of students in schools. Instead, the oh, they're okay and safe to use bull is fed to the students.
Curiously, many hospitals now will no longer allow milk to be heated in microwave ovens and given to babies as it caused many different severe reactions. It considerably compromised the babies health and in a number of instances death occurred as a result of drinking this milk. Finally, they opted to stop heating the milk in this manner after such incidents were repeatedly occurring with frequent deaths. So if microwaves alter milk in such a harmful manner that it is very bad to give to babies what makes it okay for a persons health to heat milk and other things in just because they're older????? Didn't know if you were aware of these factors so I thought I would share them.
As for them being quick no one can deny that.
In their stunning new book, THE VIRUS AND THE VACCINE (St. Martin's Press; May 2004), Debbie Bookchin and Jim Schumacher uncover a frightening and largely untold government secret that affects almost every American over age 40 and some of their children and grandchildren as well: In the 1950s and 1960s, the polio vaccine used to inoculate millions of Americans carried within it a monkey virus called SV40, one of the deadliest carcinogens known to man. Even worse, Bookchin and Schumacher discover that the U.S. government - fearful of the public's reaction - systematically covered up and disregarded the danger that SV40 poses to humans.
The revelation that this medical blunder occurred, and that a cover-up has been in place for decades, marks a huge breach of trust between the public and the government-sponsored medical agencies that are supposed to be looking out for our welfare. It also asks the question: Just what kind of safeguards are in place to prevent similar mishaps from occurring in the many other inoculations that are routinely administered to Americans?
In THE VIRUS AND THE VACCINE, Bookchin and Schumacher reveal that SV40 has been linked to such cancers as mesothelioma, lymphoma and a variety of brain and bone tumors. They also unearth some startling facts, including:
The U.S. government used its influence to try to thwart the work of researchers who attempted to expose the link between SV40 and cancer.
In the 1960s, the U.S. government knowingly allowed SV40-contaminated
polio vaccine to be administered and maintained that SV40 was harmless to humans, even as the evidence pointed to the contrary. There is evidence that SV40 is present in some blood samples taken from children today, indicating that the virus is spreading even beyond the original 100 million Americans who received widely contaminated vaccine back in the 1950s and 1960s. There is evidence that more modern polio vaccine may, at times, have been contaminated right through the 1990s, decades after it was supposedly cleaned up. Consumer fact-sheets prepared by the Centers for Disease Control and other government agencies contain misleading and inaccurate information downplaying the dangers of SV40 despite the substantial data to the contrary.
The Virus and the Vaccine follows the dramatic story of how SV40 came to taint America's most famous vaccine - from the early search for a polio cure in the 1950s - to the heartbreak of family members watching loved ones dies of cancer caused by the virus 40 years later. In a book that critics have hailed as "meticulously researched, levelheaded, and well-written" and a "gripping," "page-turning narrative," that "reads like a novel," Bookchin and Schumacher present a meticulous, well-documented investigation into this largely unknown story in medical history, detailing the disturbing government efforts to keep the link between SV40, cancer and the polio vaccine quiet.
Likewise, they follow the recent struggles of a group of prominent cancer researchers led by an enterprising doctor named Michele Carbone, whose persistence in linking SV40 to cancer has finally brought this issue to light. Carbone and other scientists familiar with SV40 maintain that it is imperative to understand how the virus may spread among humans, how to prevent it from causing cancer, and what therapies might be available for those who already have SV40-related cancers. This is especially true because SV40 is now showing up in pediatric brain and bone tumors, not just in tumors of the elderly and Baby Boom generation.
In the era of SARS, Avian Flu virus, West Nile virus and other animal-to-human transmitted viral diseases, the story of how a carcinogenic monkey virus contaminated America's "miracle" vaccine offers important lessons, especially when parents across the country are looking for reassurance that their government is doing its best to guarantee the safety of vaccines used today.
Debbie Bookchin is a prize-winning journalist who has written for numerous newspapers and magazines including the New York Times and The Boston Globe. Jim Schumacher has written science articles for periodicals including the Atlantic Monthly and Boston Magazine.

New Studies on Pesticide Residues Alarm Consumers & Farmers
Anti-Pesticide Campaigns Get Boost from Worrisome New Studies
Katherine Stapp 5/14/04
New data proving that an array of pesticides have reached alarming levels in the general population are galvanising calls for a ban on the most harmful chemicals and greater investment in sustainable farming strategies.
NEW YORK, May 14 (IPS) - This week, the San Francisco-based Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) released an analysis of data on 34 pesticides collected from more than 9,000 people by the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a U.S. government agency that monitors public health.
Their report found that among people who had both their blood and urine tested, 100 percent showed pesticide residues. Two insecticides -- chlorpyrifos and methyl parathion -- were found at levels up to 4.5 times greater than what the U.S. government deems 2acceptable2.
Chlorpyrifos, manufactured under the trade name Dursban by Dow Chemical, was especially pervasive, according to the study, titled 2Chemical Trespass: Pesticides in Our Bodies and Corporate Accountability2.
PANNA estimates that Dow is the source for some 80 percent of the chlorpyrifos found in those tested.
In fact, Dursban has been controversial for years. In 1999, the CDC announced that 82 percent of U.S. citizens had the chemical in their bodies. As a result, Dow agreed to phase out most household uses of Dursban, although it is still widely sold both in the United States and abroad.
The chemical is used in products ranging from flea collars for pets to garden and lawn care products. It is also a component in insect control products, both in agriculture and for household use.
Under a 1994 agreement, Dow also promised to stop advertising its product as 2safe2. After the company continued to claim that Dursban had no 2long term (health) effects2 and posed 2no evidence of significant risk to the environment,2 it was slapped with a two-million-dollar fine last December, the largest of its kind in U.S. history.
PANNA says the company reacted predictably to the most recent study.
2Dow's response has been to say that these pesticides don't last very long (in human tissue and the environment), but the CDC data directly contradicts that,2 Monica Moore, co-director of PANNA, told IPS. 2This really needs to be a wake-up call.2
PANNA gained access to CDC data broken down by gender, age and ethnicity, but not by geographic area or occupation. However, Moore said that the particularly high pesticide levels seen in Mexican-Americans, for example, were suggestive of exposure during farm labour.
2What this study shows is that it's not just an individual solution,2 she said. 2We need to adopt sustainable agriculture techniques. Even if you only eat organic produce, these chemicals are in the air, the water, the stuff you touch. That's why we're calling for removal of these pesticides from the environment.2
The PANNA analysis came on the heels of another study by the Ontario College of Family Physicians that found linkages between pesticide exposure and a host of cancers, as well as birth defects and foetal death.
The Canadian researchers sifted through some 12,000 studies conducted from 1990 to 2003 around the world, and concluded that there is no evidence that some pesticides are less dangerous than others, rather that they have different effects on health that take different periods to appear.
While women often register higher exposures then men because their body fat traps the toxins from pesticides, experts note that children are consistently the most vulnerable group.
In India, a study released by Greenpeace at the end of April titled 2Arrested Development2 determined that exposure to even small doses of pesticides impairs children's analytical abilities, motor skills and memory.
2When we started on this study, we knew we were likely to find unsettling evidence of children damaged by pesticides,2 said Kavitha Kuruganti, lead investigator of the study, in a statement.
2But the results of a systematic, nationwide study were far more shocking than we'd expected: 898 children from backgrounds as diverse as Tamil Nadu and Punjab who have nothing in common but their exposure to pesticides also share the inability to perform simple play-based exercises -- like catching a ball or assembling a jigsaw puzzle -- simply because they've been exposed to pesticides over a period of time,2 she said.
Among four- and five-year-olds in the country's pesticide-intensive cotton belts, the exposed children performed worse than the control group in 86 percent of the tests. Among older children, ages nine to 13, the figure was 84.2 percent.
2North-eastern states like Sikkim and Mizoram have already recognised the risks of using pesticides and declared themselves 'organic states',2 said K. A. Chandrasekar, director of the Social Initiative for Rural People's Integration, a local partner in the project.
2This study will show farmers the real price they have been forced to pay for succumbing to the marketing tactics of pesticides manufacturers.2
On May 17, the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) will take effect. It targets an initial 12 chemicals -- known as 2the dirty dozen2 -- for elimination, nine of them pesticides. The accord, just ratified by the necessary 50 countries, bans the use of POPs, and also focuses on eliminating obsolete stockpiles of pesticides and toxic chemicals that contain POPs.
The George W. Bush administration has so far refused to ratify the treaty. But some anti-pesticide campaigners are not waiting for the federal government to act. In the western state of California, a coalition of local organisations, including an indigenous group, has filed a lawsuit against the state's environmental protection agency for failing to meet goals on reducing pesticide use and smog-causing pollutants. Farm workers in Washington state, in the northwest, are suing the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for allowing the use of two toxic pesticides, azinphos-methyl and phosmet, despite research showing the dangers of exposure to such chemicals.
Just last week, 13 people working in a California peach orchard were rushed to the hospital after being exposed to the deadly nerve gas pesticide Monitor 4 and the pesticide Penncozeb 75 DM, when the wind shifted from a nearby potato field that was being sprayed.
Activists hope the new PANNA report will galvanise public opinion against pesticide use the way research documenting the health effects of smoking turned the tide against cigarette companies in the 1990s.
2The pesticides we carry in our bodies are made and aggressively promoted by agrochemical companies,2 said Skip Spitzer of PANNA. 2These companies also spend millions on political influence to block or undermine regulatory measures designed to protect public health and the environment.2
A Toxic Cover-Up?
By Bob Simon
Sunday 04 April 2004
(CBS) Who is Jack Spadaro? He's a man who's devoted his life to the safety of miners and the safety of people who live near mines.
He's an engineer, who until recently was head of the National Mine Health and Safety Academy (MSHA), a branch of the Department of Labor, which trains mining inspectors.
But he lost that job last year, after he blew the whistle on what he called a whitewash by the Bush administration of an investigation into a major environmental disaster.
"I had never seen anything so corrupt and lawless in my entire career, what I saw regarding interference with a federal investigation of the most serious environmental disaster in the history of the Eastern United States," says Spadaro.
"I've been in government since Richard Nixon. I've been through the Reagan administration, Carter and Clinton. I've never seen anything like this."
What he's talking about is what he calls a government cover-up of an investigation into a disaster 25 times the size of the Exxon Valdez spill.
It happened in October of 2000, when 300 million gallons of coal slurry - thick pudding-like waste from mining operations - flooded land, polluted rivers and destroyed property in Eastern Kentucky and West Virginia. The slurry contained hazardous chemicals, including arsenic and mercury.
"It polluted 100 miles of stream, killed everything in the streams, all the way to the Ohio River," says Spadaro, who was second in command of the team investigating the accident.
The slurry had been contained in an enormous reservoir, called an impoundment, which is owned by the Massey Energy Company. One night, the heavy liquid broke through the bottom of the reservoir, flooded the abandoned coalmines below it and roared out into the streams.
Spadaro says the investigators discovered the spill was more than an accident -- it was an accident waiting to happen.
During the investigation carried out by Spadaro and his colleagues, it came out that there had been a previous spill in 1994 at the same impoundment. The mining company claimed it had taken measures to make sure it wouldn't happen again, but an engineer working for the company said the problem had not been fixed, and that both he and the company knew another spill was virtually inevitable.
"He said, We knew there would be another breakthrough," says Spadaro. "We knew. And I asked him how many people in the company knew and he said, Well, at least five people."
So why didnt they fix it? "It would have been expensive to find another site. And I think they were willing to take the risk - It was a certainty," says Spadaro.
He says it was a certainty because there was only a very thin layer of rock at the bottom of the reservoir. But that's not what the mining company had told the government.
"They told the government that there was a solid coal barrier, at least 70 to 80 feet wide between the mine workings and the bottom of the reservoir," says Spadaro of the barrier, which is less than 20 feet. "They were misrepresenting the facts - and they knew that. The company knew that and I'm sorry to say I believe some people within the government knew that."
Davitt McAteer was Spadaro's boss when the disaster happened, and head of the MSHA. He says Spadaro is right, that his own regulators hadn't done their job: "I know they didn't do enough in terms of enforcement because the thing failed. That's the proof."
"This was a catastrophic failure. By the grace of God only did we avoid fatalities," says McAteer, who expected the report to be harsh. The investigators were going to cite the coal company for serious violations that would probably have led to large fines and even criminal charges.
But all that changed when the Bush administration took over and decided that the country needed more energy -- and less regulation of energy companies. The investigation into Massey Energy, a generous contributor to the Republican Party, was cut short.
"The Bush administration came in and the scope of our investigation was considerably shortened, and we were told to wrap it up in a few weeks," says Spadaro.
"They cut it off. They did," says Ellen Smith, who publishes the countrys only newsletter devoted entirely to mine safety and health. She's been writing about the mining industry for 16 years.
"People I spoke with, who were on the investigation team, told me that they believed it was absolutely cut short, that they had more work to do and they were told to wrap it up," says Smith.
"It appeared to me they thought we were getting too close to issuing serious violations to the mining company," says Spadaro.
The new head of MSHA, a Bush appointee named Dave Lauriski, was a former mining industry mining executive, and so were his top deputies.
Spadaro says Lauriski came into his office one day, and insisted he sign a watered down version of the report -- a version that virtually let the coal company and MSHA off the hook.
"He said , I'm in a hard spot here and I need you to sign this report," recalls Spadaro. "I said, You'd best take my name off that report because I'm never going to sign that report."
Originally, Spadaro says his investigating team wanted to cite the company for eight violations. But in the end, Massey Energy was only cited for two violations, and had to pay approximately $110,000 in fines - not a lot for the fifth largest mining company in America.
Massey Energy, declined to talk to 60 Minutes. And Lauriski declined to be interviewed. So did his boss, Elaine Chao, the secretary of labor. The Department of Labor has consistently stood behind the report.
But Linc Chapman, who lives in the path of that black slurry which flooded his property and terrified his 13-year-old daughter, insists the investigation was a whitewash: "I have absolutely no confidence anymore in any of our regulatory agencies."
Hes added a second floor to his home, so his family wouldn't worry about being buried alive if there were another spill. Its a possibility that he believes may happen as long as there are hundreds of slurry impoundments in the mountains of Appalachia.
"Its a terrible thing as a father when your kids lay down at night and you tuck 'em in, and they ask you, Dad, the slurry's
not gonna come out tonight is it," says Chapman. "And you have to tell them, I don't know that the slurry's not gonna come out tonight."
Three years after the spill, there's still slurry on the Chapman's property, and you don't have to dig deep to find it. Now, the Chapmans want to sell their house, but because of the slurry on the property, there aren't any buyers.
"No one wants it. Basically its cost me everything that I have invested here, everything I've ever worked for all my life," says Chapman.
All Spadaro has worked for in his life has been mine safety. So when he felt his new bosses were trying to sabotage the investigation by trying to get him to go along with a cover-up, he complained to the Labor Department's inspector general.
The inspector general looked into the matter and released a report, saying: "None of the allegations brought forward by Mr. Spadaro were substantiated."
"That statement is a lie, is a flat out lie," says Spadaro.
"I do not trust the IG report. So much information was withheld from the public," adds Smith, who was shocked to see that about half of the report had been blanked out by the government. "If you look through this report, you will see huge black marks. They were withholding information that may or may not have proved Spadaro's allegations. And we will never know what that report says."
Spadaro also says that when the new administration came in, they doled out lucrative contracts for work at the academy to their friends. One contract, for a training program, was worth nearly $200,000. "It wasnt put out for bid at all," says Spadaro. "They violated the law and they knew it."
MSHA denies violating the law, but Spadaro says they pulled it off with some clever bookkeeping, by dividing it into smaller contracts. "They thought no one would notice," says Spadaro.
They were wrong. Smith looked into this and says she found no-bid contracts: "I found that contracts went out to the two deputy assistant secretaries for MSHA to former business associates and friends. They did not go out for bid."
So what will happen to Spadaro? "He is absolutely getting his life ruined," says Smith.
Last year, government agents entered Spadaro's office, went through his files, and locked him out. "They changed the locks on my door and still have not allowed me to return to my work place," says Spadaro, who spends his days at home.
The government says he was removed from his job primarily for abusing his authority, failing to follow procedures, and also for using his government credit card without authorization. Spadaro denies all the charges.
"There are cases upon cases of people who have had far more egregious charges than Jack Spadaro," says Smith.
"You have a guy in one of the regulatory agencies that actually wants to stand up for what's right," adds Chapman. "And because he rocks their boat, he gets thrown overboard."
Residents of Appalachia gathered in Charleston, W.Va., to demand that Spadaro get his job back. Without Spadaro, they say they're afraid there's no one left in government who will stand up for the residents instead of for the coal companies.
Spadaro is now back -- sort of. MSHA officials recently told Spadaro that he's not being fired. Instead, he's being demoted and taking about a $35,000 pay cut. He's also being transferred to the agency's Pittsburgh office, far from his family in West Virginia. But Spadaro says he has no plans to go anywhere, except perhaps to court -- to sue the government.
"I think that they thought they could simply roll over me, and I would be gone and out of their way," says Spadaro. "But I'm gonna fight them forever if it takes it."
Spadaro has asked the Office of Special Counsel for Whistleblower Protection for help, and they've agreed to investigate whether he was a victim of retaliation by MSHA officials. The Labor Department's inspector general is also looking into whether or not MSHA officials broke the law in awarding government contracts
MSG & EXCITOTOXINS

MSG - Slowly Poisoning America
Author Unknown 5-1-04
I wondered if there could be an actual chemical causing the massive obesity epidemic, so did a friend of mine, John Erb. He was a research assistant at the University of Waterloo, and spent years working for the government. He made an amazing discovery while going through scientific journals for a book he was writing called The Slow Poisoning of America. In hundreds of studies around the world, scientists were creating obese mice and rats to use in diet or diabetes test studies. No strain of rat or mice is naturally obese, so the scientists have to create them. They make these morbidly obese creatures by injecting them with a chemical when they are first born. The MSG triples the amount of insulin the pancreas creates, causing rats (and humans?) to become obese They even have a title for the race of fat rodents they create: "MSG-Treated Rats" . MSG?
I was shocked too. I went to my kitchen, checking the cupboards and the fridge. MSG was in everything! The Campbell's soups, the Hostess Doritos, the Lays flavored potato chips, Top Ramen, Betty Crocker Hamburger Helper, Heinz canned gravy, Swanson frozen prepared meals, Kraft salad dressings, especially the 'healthy low fat' ones. The items that didn't have MSG had something called Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, which is just another name for Monosodium Glutamate. It was shocking to see just how many of the foods we feed our children everyday are filled with this stuff. They hide MSG under many different names in order to fool those who catch on.
But it didn't stop there. When our family went out to eat, we started asking at the restaurants what menu items had MSG. Many employees, even the managers, swore they didn't use MSG. But when we ask for the ingredient list, which they grudgingly provided, sure enough MSG and Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein were everywhere. Burger King, McDonalds, Wendy's, Taco Bell, every restaurant, even the sit down ones like TGIF, Chilis', Applebees and Denny's use MSG in abundance. Kentucky Fried Chicken seemed to be the WORST offender: MSG was in every chicken dish, salad dressing and gravy. No wonder I loved to eat that coating on the skin, their secret spice was MSG!
So why is MSG in so may of the foods we eat? Is it a preservative or a vitamin? Not according to my friend John. In the book he wrote, an expose of the food additive industry called The Slow Poisoning of America, (www.spofamerica.com ), he said that MSG is added to food for the addictive effect it has on the human body. Even the propaganda website sponsored by the food manufacturers lobby group supporting MSG at http://www.msgfacts.com/facts/msgfact12.html explains that the reason they add it to food is to make people eat more. A study of elderly people showed that people eat more of the foods that it is added to. The Glutamate Association lobby group says eating more benefits the elderly, but what does it do to the rest of us? 'Betcha can't eat just one', takes on a whole new meaning where MSG is concerned!
And we wonder why the nation is overweight? The MSG manufacturers themselves admit that it addicts people to their products. It makes people choose their product over others, and makes people eat more of it than they would if MSG wasn't added. Not only is MSG scientifically proven
to cause obesity, it is an addictive substance: NICOTINE for FOOD! Since its introduction into the American food supply fifty years ago, MSG has been added in larger and larger doses to the prepackaged meals, soups, snacks and fast foods we are tempted to eat everyday. The FDA has set no limits on how much of it can be added to food. They claim it's safe to eat in any amount. How can they claim it is safe when there are hundreds of scientific studies with titles like these?
The monosodium glutamate (MSG) obese rat as a model for the study of exercise in obesity. Gobatto CA, Mello MA, Souza CT, Ribeiro IA. Res Commun Mol Pathol Pharmacol. 2002 Adrenalectomy abolishes the food-induced hypothalamic serotonin release in both normal and monosodium glutamate-obese rats. Guimaraes RB, Telles MM, Coelho VB, Mori RC, Nascimento CM, Ribeiro Brain Res Bull. 2002 August. Obesity induced by neonatal monosodium glutamate treatment in spontaneously hypertensive rats: an animal model of multiple risk factors. Iwase M, Yamamoto M, Iino K, Ichikawa K, Shinohara N, Yoshinari Fujishima Hypertens Res. 1998 March. Hypothalamic lesion induced by injection of monosodium glutamate in suckling period and subsequent development of obesity. Tanaka K, Shimada M, Nakao K, Kusunoki Exp Neurol. 1978 October. Yes, that last study was not a typo, it WAS written in 1978. Both the medical research community and food "manufaturers" have known MSG's side effects for decades!
Many more studies mentioned in John Erb's book link MSG to Diabetes, Migraines and headaches, Autism, ADHD and even Alzheimer's. But what can we do to stop the food manufactures from dumping fattening and addictive MSG into our food supply and causing the obesity epidemic we now see?
Even as you read this, George W. Bush and his corporate supporters are pushing a Bill through Congress. Called the "Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act" also known as the "Cheeseburger Bill", this sweeping law bans anyone from suing food manufacturers, sellers and distributors. Even if it comes out that they purposely added an addictive chemical to their foods. Read about it for yourself at: http://www.yahoo.com.http://story.news.yahoo.com/news ?
The Bill has already been rushed through the House of Representatives, and is due for the same rubber stamp at Senate level. It is important that Bush and his corporate supporters get it through before the media lets everyone know about MSG, the intentional Nicotine for food. Several months ago, John Erb took his book and his concerns to one of the highest government health officials in Canada. While sitting in the Government office, the official told him, "Sure I know how bad MSG is, I wouldn't touch the stuff!" But this top level government official refused to tell the public what he knew. The big media doesn't want to tell the public either, fearing legal issues with their advertisers. It seems that the fallout on the fast food industry may hurt their profit margin.
So what do we do? The food producers and restaurants have been addicting us to their products for years, and now we are paying the price for it. Our children should not be cursed with obesity caused by an addictive food additive. But what can I do about it? I'm just one voice, what can I do to stop the poisoning of our children, while guys like Bush are insuring financial protection for the industry that is poisoning us. I for one am doing something about it. I am sending this email out to everyone I know in an attempt to show you the truth that the corporate owned politicians and media won't tell you.
The best way you can help save yourself and your children from this drug-induced epidemic, is to forward this email to everyone. With any luck, it will circle the globe before Bush can pass the Bill protecting those who poisoned us. The food industry learned a lot from the tobacco industry. Imagine if big tobacco had a bill like this in place before someone blew the whistle on Nicotine? Blow the whistle on MSG.
If you are one of the few who can still believe that MSG is good for us, and you don't believe what John Erb has to say, see for yourself. Go to the National Library of Medicine, at www.pubmed.com http://www.pubmed.com. Type in the words "MSG Obese", and read a few of the 115 medicalstudies that appear. We do not want to be rats in one giant experiment, and we do not approve of food that makes us into a nation of obese, lethargic, addicted sheep, waiting for the slaughter. With your help we can put an end to this, and stop the Slow Poisoning of America. Let's save our children http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/FluoridePoisoning/message/1908
Hidden Sources Of MSG In Foods
>From the book 'Excitotoxins - The Taste That Kills'
By Dr. Russell Blaylock, MD
What if someone were to tell you that a chemical (MSG) added to food could cause brain damage in your children, and that this chemical could effect how your children's nervous systems formed during development so that in later years they may have learning or emotional difficulties? What if there was scientific evidence that these chemicals could permanently damage a critical part of the brain known to control hormones so that later in life your child might have endocrine problems? How would you feel?
Suppose evidence was presented to you strongly suggesting that the artificial sweetener in your diet soft drink may cause brain tumors to develop, and that the number of brain tumors reported since the introduction of this widespread introduction of this artificial sweetener has risen dramatically? Would that affect your decision to drink these products and especially to allow your children to drink them? What if you could be shown overwhelming evidence that one of the main ingredients in this sweetener (aspartate) could cause the same brain lesions as MSG? Would that affect your buying decisions? And finally, what if it could be demonstrated that all of these types of chemicals, called excitotoxins, could possibly aggravate or even precipitate many of today's epidemic neurodegenerative brain diseases such as Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, ALS, and Alzheimer's disease?
Would you be concerned if you knew that these excitotoxin food additives are a particular risk if you have diabetes, or have ever had a stroke, brain injury, brain tumor, seizure, or have suffered from hypertension, meningitis, or viral encephalitis? Would you also be upset to learn that many of the brain lesions caused by these products in your children are irreversible and can result from a SINGLE exposure of these products in sufficient concentration? How would you feel when you learn the food industry hides and disguises these excitotoxin additives (MSG and Aspartate) so they can't be recognized? Incredulous? Enraged? The fact is many foods are labeled as having "No MSG" but in fact not only contain MSG but also are laced with other excitotoxins of equal potency and danger.
All of the above are true. And all of these well known brain toxins are poured into our food and drink by the thousands of tons to boost sales. These additives have NO OTHER purpose other than to enhance to TASTE of food and the SWEETNESS of various diet products.
Hidden Sources Of MSG
As discussed previously, the glutamate (MSG) manufacturers and the processed food industries are always on a quest to disguise the MSG added to food. Below is a partial list of the most common names for disguised MSG. Remember also that the powerful excitotoxins, aspartate and L-cystine, are frequently added to foods and according to FDA rules require NO LABELING AT ALL.
Food Additives that ALWAYS contain MSG *
Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
Hydrolyzed Plant Protein
Plant Protein Extract
Textured Protein (Including TVP)
Hydrolyzed Oat Flour
* Food Additives That FREQUENTLY Contain MSG *
Natural Beef Or Chicken Flavoring
* Food Additives That MAY Contain MSG Or Excitotoxins *
Soy Protein Concentrate
Soy Protein Isolate
Whey Protein Concentrate
Also: Protease Enzymes of various sources can release excitotoxin amino acids from food proteins.
Aspartame - An Intense Source Of Excitotoxins:
Aspartame is a sweetener made from two amino acids, phenylalanine and the excitotoxin aspartate. It should be avoided at all costs. Aspartame complaints accounts for approximately 70% of ALL complaints to the FDA. It is implicated in everything from blindness to headaches to convulsions. Sold under dozens of brand names such as NutraSweet and Equal, aspartame breaks down within 20 minutes at room temperature into several primary toxic and dangerous ingredients:
1. DKP (diketopiperazine) (When ingested, converts to a near duplicate of a powerful brain tumor causing agent)
2. Formic Acid (ant venom)
3. Formaldehyde (embalming fluid)
4. Methanol (causes blindness...extremely dangerous substance)
Diet soft drinks, sugar free gums, sugar free Kool Aid, Crystal Light, childrens' medications, and thousands of other products claiming to be 'low calorie', 'diet', or 'sugar free'.
A Final Note...
Dr. Blaylock recounted a meeting with a senior executive in the food additive industry who told him point blank that these excitotoxins are going to be in our food no matter how many name changes are necessary
Does milk really look good on you?
What happens to a baby cow within 60 days if it's fed processed milk?
by Ingri Cassel
Pasteurized, homogenized cow's milk has been promoted as the perfect food for humans, especially for our children. This multi-generational advertising campaign has been so successful that the industry has a $multi-million advertising budget and a legislative lobbying influence in congress so powerful that every child in a public school receives a pint of milk each day -- whether he or she can pay for it or not.
In 1999 the Department of Agriculture donated $200 million to America's dairy farmers despite the fact that the wholesale price for milk had reached the highest levels in history.
Most people have been so conditioned to believe that the healthy growth of their children's bones is dependent upon receiving calcium from processed cow's milk that they view milk commercials as more of a public service announcement than an attempt by businessmen to sell a product.
Several well-footnoted books and countless articles on the subject show that processed cow's milk is not healthy for humans and, to the contrary, has been linked to a wide range of physiological complications. The list of problems that have been associated with the consumption of milk and dairy products includes iron deficiency anemia, allergies, diarrhea, heart disease, colic, cramps, gastrointestinal bleeding, sinusitis, skin rashes, acne, arthritis, diabetes, ear infections, osteoporosis, asthma, autoimmune diseases and possibly even lung cancer, multiple sclerosis and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Milk and dairy products are acid-forming and mucus-producing substances that provide the ideal bodily environment for many children and adults to experience increased frequency of colds and flus.
The milk of mammals is species-specific and cow's milk is a species-specific food for calves. Dr. Frank Oski explains in his book Don't Drink Your Milk!, "The milk of each species appears to have been specifically designed to protect the young of that species.....Heating, sterilization, or modification of the milk in any way destroys the protection."
There is a tremendous difference between human babies and baby calves and a corresponding difference between the milk intended to nourish human babies and baby calves. It takes about 180 days for a human infant to double its birth weight, and human milk is five to seven percent protein. It takes only 45 days for a calf to double its birth weight and cow's milk is 15 percent protein. This protein in cow's milk is of a different composition than that of human milk and is poorly assimilated in the human body. The primary type of protein in cow's milk is casein. According to Dr. John R. Christopher, N.D., M.H., there is up to 20 times more casein in cow's milk than human milk which makes the nutrients in cow's milk difficult (if not impossible) for humans to assimilate.
Lost in the process
Pasteurizing milk destroys enzymes and reduces the vitamin content by over 50 percent. Raw milk contains beneficial bacteria such as lactobacillus acidophilus which holds the putrefactive bacteria in check. This is why raw milk will eventually curdle and sour if allowed to sit at room temperature. Pasteurized milk, not having any beneficial bacteria or enzymes, eventually rots.
The irony of pasteurization is that it destroys the germicidal properties of milk. Experimental animals deteriorate rapidly on pasteurized milk. For instance, calves fed pasteurized milk die within 60 days, as shown by numerous experiments. So why do we pasteurize milk? 1) It extends the shelf life of milk from five days to several weeks and 2) It enables the farmer to have lower standards of cleanliness. The standards for certified dairy herds and milk handlers of raw milk are considerably higher than for herds whose milk is to be pasteurized.
Homogenizing milk has been linked to the rise in arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and heart disease. The culprit is an enzyme in milk called xanthine oxidase (XO) which partly survives pasteurization (40 percent). When the cream in milk is in it's natural state, the fat globules are too large to go through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream. Homogenization changes that by straining the fat through tiny pores under great pressure. XO attaches to the fat molecules (now reduced in size but increased in amount a hundred times) which are now small enough to get into the bloodstream and do its damage.
Scientists have discovered that a significant amount of XO is present in areas of hardened and blocked arteries. XO is not present in human milk. In clean, raw cow's milk. XO is not absorbed by the intestines.
Your bones are a mineral bank for your body storing 99 percent calcium, 85 percent phosphorus and 60 percent magnesium. When mineral levels are low in the blood, osteoclasts break down bone to free up these minerals and deposit them in the blood. Excessive animal protein intake increases the need for calcium to neutralize the acid formed from digesting animal protein. This indicates that the drinking of processed milk destroys bone in the process of digestion -- the opposite of what the Dairy Farmer's Association of America, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration has been telling the American public for generations.
Conditioning the American public to believe that processed cow's milk is beneficial, if not critical to growing healthy bodies is not unlike conditioning the American public to believe that fluoride prevents tooth decay.
Jethro Kloss, author of the internationally recognized and revered herbalist resource guide "Back to Eden" stated in 1939 that, "Cow's milk is unfit for human consumption" and causes the symptoms of "intestinal auto-intoxication."
The Monsanto connection
In 1994 the FDA approved the use of recombinant bovine somatotropin (rBST -- better known as bovine growth hormone -- BGH), a genetically-engineered hormone manufactured by Monsanto that increases milk production in cows by 10 percent to 25 percent. The milk from cows treated with BGH contains elevated levels insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), one of the most powerful growth factors ever identified. While IGF-1 doesn't cause cancer, it definitely stimulates its growth. Recent studies have found a seven-fold increase in the risk of breast cancer in women with the highest IGF-1 levels, and a four-fold increase in prostate cancer in men with the highest levels of IGF-1.
BGH is banned in both Canada and Europe.
BGH-treated cows are also more likely to contract mastitis, a persistent infection of the cows' udders. These cows are then treated with a myriad of antibiotics and sulfa drugs. Trace amounts of these drugs as well as pus and bacteria from the infected udders are also found in their milk. Many of these antibiotics, even in trace amounts, can cause allergic reactions -- from mild reactions such as hives to anaphylactic shock.
The role of Monsanto, one of the world's largest chemical corporations and developer of the terminator gene for seed crops, in the willful adulteration and contamination of milk must be considered. Monsanto, also one of the world's most prolific polluters, intends to control the world's food supply by making sure that farmers must come back and purchase its seed year after year because terminator gene-containing plants will not produce viable seed. Monsanto also developed the FDA-approved bovine growth hormone that increases production at the expense of the cow and the health of the adults and children who drink the milk.
Kloss' statement, which cannot be interpreted as "vague" or confusing, was published long before Monsanto was able to further contaminate milk with bovine growth hormone. If cow's milk was "unfit for human consumption" in 1939, has Monsanto and the FDA, with the introduction and approval of BGH, made it more or less fit than it was before WWII?
Dietary alternatives to cow calcium
Our nutritional education in school (funded in part by the dairy industry) taught us that dairy products are one of the four basic food groups we ALL need for proper nutrition. Largely as a result of this K-12 conditioning, the average American consumes 375 pounds of dairy products a year. One out of every seven dollars spent on groceries in the U.S. goes to buy dairy products.
There is no question that cow's milk contains calcium. What is in question is how much of that calcium is made available to the body through the digestive process.
We have been told all of our lives to drink plenty of milk in order to build strong teeth and bones. Curiously, the U.S. as a whole records the highest consumption of dairy products in the world and also boasts the highest incidence of bone fractures and osteoporosis in the world. In the January 1988 Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, scientists reported that calcium excretion and bone loss increase in proportion to the amount of animal protein ingested. Animal proteins, due to their high sulfur content, alter the kidney's reabsorption of calcium, so that more calcium is excreted on a diet based upon meats, eggs and dairy products. People on high protein diets excrete between 90 to 100 mg. of calcium a day.
The difference in health between consumers of milk and those who choose to abstain are astounding. Dr. John R. Christopher tells the story of a woman who came to his office with her three grown daughters. All three daughters were encouraged by their mother to drink lots of milk but one of the daughters had rebelled. The two daughters who dutifully drank their milk and lots of it wore false teeth whereas the third daughter who abstained still had all her teeth intact.
Being a former La Leche League leader, I have heard numerous stories told by mothers of the trials and tribulations of raising children. The most frequent success stories I have heard about resolving chronic ear infections and frequent trips to the doctor's office is the elimination of dairy products. Over and over again these women relate how surprised they were to have healthy kids at last. Others have found that milk, being quite addictive, was more difficult to eliminate totally. These families would go on a dairy binge periodically. The following week they would pay for it with a flare up of symptoms from the build up of mucus.
Dr. J.Dan Baggert, a pediatrician in Alabama, describes his experience after recommending that ALL his patient's eliminate cow's milk from their diets:
In Don't Drink Your Milk, Dr. Baggert was quoted as stating, "During the years from 1963 through 1967, I referred an average of four appendectomy cases per year. During the past five and a half years, I have referred only two patients for appendectomy, the last one being three years ago. Both of these children were professed milk guzzlers.... I do not have a single case of asthma. In fact, I have nearly forgotten how to prescribe for them....
"Perhaps the most significant thing I have learned is that Group A beta-hemolytic streptococcus germ will not, under ordinary circumstances, establish an infection in a child kept on an absolutely no-milk-protein dietary regimen. I have been aware of this for the past two and a half years and, so far, there have been no exceptions. Anytime a patient of mine is found to have streptococcal pharyngitis or pyoderma, we can establish by history that he ingested milk protein within five days prior to onset of symptoms or signs bringing him to the office....
"I now admit an average of 12-14 patients per year to the hospital. Their average hospital stay is three days. Between 1963 and 1967, I admitted an average of 100+ patients to the hospital per year. Their average stay was five days."
Considering all this evidence, it would be difficult to still buy into the media hype that cow's milk is the perfect food and natural for humans to consume. So what do you drink instead? Distilled water, herbal teas and fresh-extracted fruit and vegetable juices. And if you are a newborn infant, there are two obvious alternatives -- the right and left breast of your healthy mother.
To increase dietary calcium, consider increasing your consumption of green leafy vegetables such as collards, kale and spinach. Adding these greens to soups, stews and even chili is a more appetizing way to incorporate them into your diet. Carrots and their juice are also an excellent source of highly assimilable calcium.
Study: Major Changes from Warming
By Edie Lau and Stuart Leavenworth
Tuesday 17 August 2004
By the end of the century, continued buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will sour wine grape production, distress dairy cows and bring summer temperatures to many inland cities that match Death Valley's today, according to scientists who have conducted the most detailed study yet of global climate change's effects in California.
The study, released Monday, lays out two main scenarios for the state. One is "business as usual," with carbon-dioxide emissions continuing to rise steeply through the rest of the century. The other presumes greater reliance in the near future on energy sources other than fossil fuels.
"We found substantial differences in the consequence of climate change - (that) depend on future emissions," said Katharine Hayhoe of ATMOS Research and Consulting in Indiana, lead author of the study appearing this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Hayhoe said that finding sets apart this study from previous ones, which considered simply how the future might look under climate change. The latest study, conducted by a team of 19 scientists, "asks a striking new question," she said: "How do these impacts depend upon the choices that we make?"
In both scenarios, average temperatures rise, snowpack diminishes and agriculture and quality of life suffer noticeably. That's because the existing emissions - about 24.5 billion metric tons of heat-trapping carbon dioxide per year worldwide from burning fossil fuels - will continue to influence climate for years to come.
The number of days when the temperature reaches 90 degrees or higher in Sacramento more than doubles under the business-as-usual scenario, from 58 days on average historically to 138 days before the end of the century.
Under the lower-carbon-emissions scenario, the number of days of 90 degrees or hotter also nearly - but not quite - doubles, to 115.
Maurice Roos, the state hydrologist, said higher temperatures may not be that difficult to cope with, at least for most people. "There are many other big cities in the world that are hotter - not that it's pleasant," he said.
A one-time skeptic of global warming who is now concerned about its effects on water supply in California, Roos said he tends to believe its manifestation will not be as terrible as some models show.
By contrast, at a telephone news briefing Monday, four of the scientists who produced the study spoke passionately of the need for action.
"The way forward is clear," said Christopher Field, an ecologist and director of the Carnegie Institution's Department of Global Ecology based at Stanford University. "We (in California) need to take a leadership position on putting the world on course to lower emissions."
California has taken a maverick step in controlling "greenhouse gas" emissions from cars, becoming the first in the country to propose mandatory reductions in such pollutants from automobiles beginning with the 2009 model year.
The state also has joined seven other states and New York City in a lawsuit seeking big cuts in greenhouse gases from the nation's five largest power suppliers.
The scientists said they selected California to study in detail because of its diverse environment - mountains, deserts, coast and valleys - its diverse human cultures, its diversity of wildlife and plants and the fact that its economy consistently ranks among the world's largest.
The study was based upon two computer global climate models, one developed by a team in Britain, the other by the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Colorado. The team "downscaled" the global model to California size, using a statistical method that other researchers in the field said is scientifically sound.
Then they ran two scenarios under each model. The first assumed no changes in the carbon-dioxide emissions rate. The amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has risen from 315 parts per million in 1958 to about 370 ppm today. If unabated, it will reach nearly 1,000 ppm by the end of the century.
The lower-emissions scenario assumed that the emissions rate would slow in coming decades, bringing the atmospheric concentration to 550 ppm by the 22nd century.
Among the projections:
· The April 1 snowpack declines from between 26 percent to 89 percent across all elevations.
· The heat-wave season - the period during which temperatures reach 90 degrees or higher for three or more consecutive days - lengthens to between 132 days a year and 204 days a year. Historically, the heat-wave season has lasted 115 days.
· Heat-related deaths in Los Angeles jump from 165 to 1,182 a year.
· The average annual temperatures rises to 69 degrees from 59 degrees.
A change of even 4 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit on average is notable, Hayhoe said. "It's the difference between spending the summer in Yosemite (National) Park as opposed to spending it in downtown Sacramento," she said.
A change of 15 degrees on average would make coastal cities feel like many inland cities today, she added, "and make summers in many inland cities feel like Death Valley today."
The scientists said agriculture could be severely affected. For example, dairy cows' milk production drops off as the temperature rises.
In the state's top 10 dairy-producing counties - which account for most of California's dairy output - production could drop between 7 percent and 22 percent.
Similarly, wine grapes would ripen sooner, with a consequent drop in quality.
Michael Marsh, CEO of Western United Dairymen in Modesto, said his industry group is keenly interested in environmental issues, including climate change. One avenue the industry is pursuing is capturing methane, a greenhouse gas produced by cattle manure, and burning it for energy.
Karen Ross, president of the California Association of Winegrape Growers, said her group has not tackled global warming. She said making broad statements about how it could affect the state wine industry is difficult because California has such a variety of microclimates.
"It could potentially have an impact on some of our wine-growing regions," she said.
The ski industry, which stands to be devastated by the loss of snowpack, is very active on the issue.
The National Ski Areas Association, based in Colorado, advocates a national reduction of greenhouse-gas emissions. "We don't have our heads in the snowbank on this," association President Michael Berry said.

8000 numbers are non-gmo and 9000 numbers are organic
Also, a good site on the non-GMO-front (they have a free e-newsletter once a month) is: www.organicconsumers.org
Nearly 90% of the wheat, corn, canola oil (watch for this at Trader Joe's, they load their products with canola oil and falsely advertise they have no GMO products. There was a group suing them for this false advertising.) The next biggest group is soy, tomatoes and papaya. If you ever eat tofu, look for non-GMO on the label. If there's not a label--it's modified. The only 100% "pure tomatoes" are Roma, unless you grew them yourself and got the seeds from a non-GMO seed company. Romas are a sure thing. You can check with a conscientious, throughly scrupulous manager at your local healthy grocery store and ask about the tomatoes. Lots of store managers just do what the health magazines promote---and those aren't all valid---they are selling product.
As one U.S. corporate attorney said, "Why would we put a GMO label on a product? That's like putting a skull and crossbones sign on it!" That was off the record of course.. although someone caught it.
The more people become aware of it-- the sooner they'll stop screwing around with the food just to made it last 5 days longer and look more attractive. I don't believe people are concerned or even know about the risk. Remember the tryptophan recall? Tryptophan is natural, in turkey, milk, etc. That was genetically engineered in Japan. Those people died. The results they're finding now are immune disorders slowly developing. They are not pre-testing ANY of the products (i.e fruits, vegetables, oils, boxed and bottled products, etc.) to see what probable side effects may build up.
It's like eating plastic, with a toxic twist.
CELL PHONES AND SATELLITE DISHES: BEWARE
Subject: Satellite Dishes
For a fee, an electrical engineer has about five different types of meters,including very effective gaussmeters, to measure these fields. The most expensive meters have the most accurate measurements. These can cost thousands of dollars, so it is best to hire an engineer who has them already.
We returned our new laptop*, as the field with 18" of the screen was horrendous. The fields from satellites-cellphones and satellites-computers have been causing documented brain tumors for 20 years.
The Q-links don't pan out as far as any significant reduction, plus it isn't really the best thing to hang something metallic in front of your heart chakra, a stone would be more helpful (with no metal back). LP
Laptops fields can be measured; there's a significant difference between models. Don't ever stick your face within 10 inches of the screen for longer than a couple minutes, the field does start to substantially diminish about 20 inches from the screen on some models....for others the field is a thick, heavy, and three feet deep of detrimental EMF, so that would drape your head and chest in the field.

The aptness of Russia for a launch of "World Without Waves"
We and many scientists believe digital phones are far more dangerous than analog phones because the signals are pulsed at much higher Mirowave Frequencies and laboratory studies have shown that pulsed radiation is more damaging to biological tissue than steady state radiation (Analog). as found with the Dr. Henry Lai reports of DNA single and double strand breaks, at lower then most cell phone power levels, using the RF frequencies of newer digital cell phones. The Lai Studies results were or are repeatable as done in DNA
Think Twice Before You Place That Call
by William Thomas
Though intended for renovations, Chris Anderson would like all visitors to deposit their cellular phones in the cement mixer by his front door. This sounds excessive - until you step into Anderson1s orchard, where the pegged needle of a shrieking electromagnetic radiation (EMR) meter placed beside a connected cellphone still shows significant exposure 100 feet away.
Much to the chagrin of this certified EMR-mitigation specialist, every day some 300 million cellphone users are 3reaching out and touching someone you love. Yourself, and anyone else within range of the microwaves emitted by your phone.2
Mesmerized by magical gadgets, we have yet to count the costs of miniature radio transmitters that are transforming Marconi1s invention into new possibilities for portable personal pollution. As entire nations reach for pocket communicators, the explosively emergent $40 billion a year mobile phone industry is poised to deliver a 3Wireless Revolution2 that over the next five years is expected to double the one-billion people connected by telephone lines over the past century.
Silicon sensors are already calling to each other. Soon, countless communicating microchips embedded in everything from bumpers to brooms will be sending streams of encoded electrical energy through glass, steel, concrete, bone and flesh.
Exquisitely sensitive to subtle electromagnetic harmonies, human brains and bodies as intricate as galaxies depend on tiny electrical impulses to conduct complex life-processes - including the ability to read, recall and respond to these words. Acting as antennas, our anatomies just as easily tune into spurious signals from radio and microwave transmissions. Blake Levitt, author of Electromagnetic Fields, says that when it comes to cellphones, 3a worse frequency could not have been chosen for the human anatomy.2
As cellphones conquer consumer minds and markets, researcher Carolanne Patton notes that 3the brain reaches peak absorption in the UHF bands, right where cellular telecommunications operate.2 British military scientists have discovered that cellphone transmissions disrupt the brain sites for memory and learning, causing forgetfulness and sudden confusion.
Other studies show that electromagnetic signals from cellular phones reduce the ability to concentrate, calculate and coordinate complicated activities such as driving a car. Startled by $4 billion a year in extra claims among cellphone-wielding drivers, North American insurers did a double-take that found simply juggling Ophones is not causing a 600% increase in accidents.'
3Hands-free2 mobile speaker-phones cause even more crashes because they typically emit 10-times more brainwave interference than handheld units.
For all drivers dialing out, University of Toronto investigators report that the heightened probability of cracking up your car persists for up to 15-minutes after completing a call. That1s comparable to the risk of crashing while driving dead drunk exclaims Dr. Chris Runball, chairman of the B.C. Medical Association1s emergency medical services committee. Reeling from 3dial-a-collision2 costs, the government of British Columbia may join England, Spain, Israel, Switzerland and Brazil in banning the use of cellphones by drivers.
In New Zealand, cellphone towers are prohibited on school property because of possible health effects. But Health Canada regulations ignore the hidden hazards of cell-wrenching cellphones, which send pulsed signals through the skull in a process one expert likens to 3jackhammers on the brain.2
One of a handful of licensed electricians who understand electromagnetic fields well enough to eliminate them from household wiring, McGinnis has been testing EMFs and collaborating with fellow testers and researchers for nearly a decade. In Victoria, where he has helped residents defeat six cellphone towers, there was dancing in the streets after Microcell Connexions withdrew its application to erect a microwave transmission tower against the Wishart Elementary School fence in the spring of 1998.
The cellphone1s 3second-hand2 microwave and radio-frequency (RF) pollution pose invisible but significant risks to bystanders - particularly children riding in cars that transmit amplified cellphone signals through their steel structure. Reporting the conclusions of a 12-person British study team, scientist Sir William Stewart told London1s Financial Times that 3children may be more vulnerable because of their developing nervous system, the greater absorption of energy in the tissues of the head and a longer lifetime of exposure.2
Roger Coghill became a long-standing advocate for health warnings to be affixed to mobile phones after this biologist found that cellphone transmissions damage the ability of white blood cells to ward off infectious disease by disrupting the immune system1s electromagnetic communications.
Dr. Neil Cherry has measured accelerated aging, increased cell death and cancers caused by radio frequency microwaves from cellphones and their relay towers. With the brain1s electro-chemical communications repeatedly zapped by lightning-like cellphone pulses, this Ph.D. biophysicist warns that headaches, fatigue, lethargy, nausea, dizziness, depression, arteriosclerosis and even Alzheimer1s can result from frequent or prolonged calls.
3There is also a higher incidence of cardiac problems,2 Cherry comments, 3in terms of the timing function in hearts. You get more heart attacks and more heart disease - it has now been shown in many studies.2
The biophysicist from Lincoln University in Christ Church, New Zealand has also found that cellphones can murderously modify moods. In brains and bodies seriously derailed by tiny imbalances in trace minerals and hormones, depression, suicide, anger, rage and violence can result when calcium and serotonin levels are disrupted by cellphone transmissions.
In 1995, mobile phone sales in North America exceeded the birth rate. Hired by the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association to condone cellphones, public health scientist George Carlo found that tumors on the outside of the brain are more than doubled among cellphone callers - particularly on the right side of the head where Ophones are usually held. Carlo told ABC1s 320/202 that cell phone causes genetic damage that leads to cancer.
Warning of 3the potential for a global health disaster,2 ABC recommended 3prudent avoidance2 of cellphones after finding that every cellphone they lab-tested exceeded the Federal Communication Commission1s standards for EMF absorption rates. EMF researcher Dave Ashton cautioned 20/20 viewers that because cellphones constantly search for the nearest repeating tower, 3long-term damage comes from cell phones in the stand-by mode.2 Cellphone 3shields2 and headsets 3cannot adequately address these problems,2 Ashton added.
Dr. Carlo later told London1s Express newspaper that cellphones cause genetic damage following a dose-response curve. That is, the more a person uses a cellphone, the more cellular destruction and health risks they incur. Cellphone-confused cells can go crazy, Carlo cautioned. Experiments on captive animals show that this cumulative DNA damage is passed on to succeeding generations.
Addicted as we are to a culture of convenience, we forget how inconvenient it is to contract cancer. An Adelaide Hospital study confirmed Carlo1s conclusions after finding B-cell lymphomas doubled in mice within 18 months of one-hour daily exposure to power densities experienced by a cellphone user. B-cell lymphomas are implicated in 85% of all cancers.
READY OR NOT
As magazine-size 3cellular2 relay antennas hidden in church steeples and rooflines keep popping up just about everywhere, more and more communities are declaring their airspace a 3No Fry Zone2. But in Canada, where cellphone towers come under federal jurisdiction, municipalities are only 3advisers1 to a process in which no permits are required to erect transmitter towers deemed necessary for 3national security.2
Many more lives are involuntarily imperiled by non-emergency calls. Pat Irwin was working in a Colwood health food store when she noticed a truck unloading metal framework. The next morning, a new cellphone tower was ready to add its emissions to another BC Tel tower already operating down the street. There had been no announcement, no public hearings - just a quiet notification to the municipality that a tower was going up, literally overnight.
The intruder radiated for a month when Irwin felt her immunity dropping. She wondered if other changes in her energy and menstrual cycle were 3not from the moon or something that I ate.2
Irwin also seemed more irritable after her central nervous switchboard began receiving round-the-clock cellphone calls. With cellular relay towers in Kansas and Oklahoma being shut down because they interfered with passing aircraft, Irwin sensed how the same transmissions plucked her own electrical circuitry, inflicting a 3chronic edginess2 that 3twangs human nerves.2 Sleep disorders, she learned, are common among people exposed to high levels of electromagnetic pollution.
After several other women in the same business centre reported similar symptoms, Irwin quit her job. 3I saw it as something that was there to stay and I1d be daily exposed to it over a long period of time,2 she told Alive. 3All this stuff is what we1re playing with on a daily basis.2
There is nothing 3safe2 about the new 1.9 gigahertz broadcasting frequency. Much like a boxer taking repeated blows to the head, rapidly pulsing cellphones signal permanent brain damage. A study by Dr. Peter Franch found unequivocally that 3cells are permanently damaged by cellular phone frequencies.2 This cellular damage, Franch noted, is maximized at low dosage - and 3inherited unchanged, from generation to generation.2
Katharina Gustavss, a certified Building Biology consultant with 25 years experience, explains that CDMA1s 217 Hz spikes are very close to the frequencies of human cell membranes. Gustavss accompanied a Microcell technician to the Colwood microwave relay tower Irwin and others had complained about. When he waved a spectrum analyzer, Gustavss checked the display and saw 3pretty scary2 energy spikes.
3What1s that?2 she asked the tech.
3I1ve never seen that before,2 he told her. It turned out that this cellphone tower tester only set his meter to an averaging mode. Switching to 3real time2 froze the readings at 3scary2 maximum output levels.
How dangerous are cellphones? 3The risk is extremely high,2 declares Dr. Cherry. 3There are 66 epidemiological studies showing that electromagnetic radiation across the spectrum increase brain tumors in human populations."
Cherry says that because cancer takes a decade to develop, it will be another 10 years before 3mobiles2 manifest a big bonanza in brain tumors. But he adds, we1re already seeing 3acute effects that are noticed within minutes of using a cellphone.2 After two minutes1 conversation, a cellphone1s digitized impulses disable the safety barrier that isolates the brain from destructive proteins and poisons in the blood. Professor Leif Salford, the neurologist who carried out the research for this finding, informed the Daily Mail: 3It seems that molecules such as proteins and toxins can pass out of the blood, while the phone is switched on, and enter the brain. We need to bear in mind diseases such as MS and Alzheimer1s which are linked to proteins being found in the brain.2
DANCING WITH THE TELECOMONSTER
If you must pack a cellphone, treat it like a loaded pistol. Keep it turned off. Don1t carry it near ovaries, testicles, or the heart. For partial protection, buy an antenna shield. Limit calls to one-minute, six to 10 minutes a month. Never fire off a cellphone with children anywhere in sight.
When it comes to cells, consciousness and cellphones, every call is collect. How can convenience count more than cancer? What is gained by being in constant contact with disembodied voices, while being 3out of touch2 with the friends and neighbours around us? Are we comfortable having our location traced by monitoring authorities?
Unless we start voting with our wallets, consumer complacency could prove as species-limiting as corporate cynicism. 3Microwave frequencies are the same as those used in radar and your microwave oven,2 says Florida cellphone tower opponent Joe Chwick. 3You wouldn1t think of sticking your head in the oven, but there is no hesitation to putting the cellphone to your ear.2
Having somehow survived three-million years of evolution without them, many contemporary hominids claim they cannot live without them. But can exquisitely sensitive electromagnetic beings live with cellphones - and the towers their signals ride in on? Like polyethylene food and water containers, plastic cookers and coffee-makers, microwave ovens and petroleum-powered vehicles, cellphones could be one of those brilliantly beguiling inventions we have to let go. Would hanging up on such an intrusive and hazardous addiction be so terrible?

When medical science abandons safe medical practices for highly dangerous ones we have a serious situation that we need to look at under a microscope. When the law protects organizations, people and corporations that inject, for example, mercury containing vaccines into newborn infants and children in the first years of life, a substance that burns their brain[i], sometimes kills[ii], or more frequently causes autism and many other neurological disorders[iii], we have a huge catastrophic problem that casts a serious doubt on the sanity of those involved. When we contrast this horror with another one that puts people in jail for using a drug fantastically safer,[iv] we have a psychological wind shear that highlights, in no uncertain terms, an until now hidden mass insanity creating enormous problems for society.
Kids who received 100 micrograms of thimerosal were over ten times more likely to have autism than the kids who received no mercury containing vaccines.
Dr. Mark Geier
The United States government and most medical organizations will defend to the bitter end the safety of injecting mercury into little children while spending vast resources[v] to arrest and imprison up to 700,000 people a year in the United States alone for the use of one of the safest drug in existence[vi] in their war on drugs.[vii] According to House of Lords (UK) Report on Cannabis for Medical Purposes, "no-one has ever died as a direct and immediate consequence of recreational or medical use."[viii] That makes marijuana the safest drug in the world, safer than Bayer Aspirin when you look at the fact that somewhere between five hundred to one thousand people die each year in the United States from aspirin,[ix] (and thousands more from other similar nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). In the United States, more than 100,000 people with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis are hospitalized every year for gastrointestinal problems caused by NSAIDs--and at least 16,500 of them die from internal bleeding.[x]
Marijuana is the safest therapeutically active substance known to man, safer than many foods we commonly consume.
Francis L. Young.[xi]
In contrast we have thimerosal which is fifty percent mercury by weight. In what was perhaps the best-kept secret of the 20th century a highly toxic mercury-based chemical named thimerosal, originally developed by the Eli Lilly Company, has been used widely as a preservative in vaccines. "Thimerosal is one of the most toxic compounds I know of, I can't think of anything that I know of that is more lethal," says Dr. Boyd Haley, Chemistry Chairman Kentucky University.[xii][xii]
This essay is not pro-marijuana. It is about better medicine and better outcomes for patients, better quality of life and perhaps the saving of lives that would otherwise be lost. Marijuana use is a complex subject and presently there are circulating highly dangerous forms of it. For example, part of the current marijuana in the US is nitrogen based - extremely hallucinogenic and not organic, certainly not medical grade. This and other highly altered types of drugs are very addictive, ravage peoples homes and destroy peoples lives.[xiii][xiii] Many people can use drugs recreationally without much of a problem, some even gain conscious insights and grow. But many more use them to mask and hide feelings and avoid reality. When you include Television as an electronic drug we can begin to see the huge dimension of our present civilizations need for diversion. What is wrong with modern society and why people take flight in drugs is an important subject but one thing should be clear:
The 'drug war' is one of the most insane irrationalities ever prosecuted by medical and other authorities in the civilized world.
Insanity is an interesting word. The greatest thing to understand about insanity is that to the naked eye insanity seems normal. That father who is abusing his daughter or the priest one of his choirboys seems normal in almost all other regards. The rapist or child molester can be president of a firm, a lawyer, normal college student, or the garbage man from down the street. It is rare the direct perception of insanity. You cannot look at a person and see their insanity. Insane people usually seem and appear normal. And then they do something that is not normal at all. Dictionaries basically define insanity as being a deranged state or unsoundness of mind, lack of understanding, extreme folly, or something utterly foolish or unreasonable. Medical insanity is a psychological disorder that needs definition, needs to be brought into clear focus to insure that medicine does not destroy humanity as it is now doing, in ever increasing numbers, through iatrogenic death and disease.[xiv][xiv]
Many of the practices of modern medicine fall under the shadow of such descriptions but the most profound and intolerable is the use of mercury in vaccines and in dental products.[xv][xv] To the vast majority doctors, nurses and dentists, the use of the most deadly substance known to man is perfectly normal and not regarded with appropriate fear or caution. Only the smallest minority of people is aware of the clear and present dangers of mercury. Thus the masses think nothing of protecting their kids from grave danger, from something unreasonable, foolish, stupid and cruel; in short, from medical and dental insanity.[xvi][xvi] The phenomena of making safer drugs illegal while promoting the use of poisonous and deadly substances represents something strange, indecent, certainly its not a scientific or medically sound idea. Insanity is a strong word that does not bring up comforting feelings, but it is a word that serves us well in talking about a subject that on one end poisons kids and on the other criminalizes society. Instead of institutions working to better humanity and resolve some of the deeper problems and conflicts so many people face; instead of dealing with public health in a multidimensional creative and productive way, government and medical institutions are sponsoring pharmaceutical terrorism and an insane war on drugs.
Our principal reason for recommending that the law be changed, to
make legal the use of cannabis for medical purposes, is compassionate.
The House of Lords
Yet the United States Government throws out all wisdom and compassion and would rather build the worlds biggest jail system and fill them up with victims and prisoners in its war against drugs. The U.S. currently houses over 2 million people in its prisons, more per capita than any other country on the globe. Up to 60% of those are incarcerated for non-violent drug offences and an estimated 750,000 children in this country have a parent in prison, largely as a result of long sentences for drug crimes. Judges in the United States have dished out millions of years in prison time to non-violent drug law violators during this war on drugs. Each inmate costs the taxpayer about 25,000 dollars a year; thus more than $30 billion is squandered annually by the government to fight a drug war that can never be won. So instead of looking logically at the totally inappropriate, criminal and cruel use of compounds like mercury, governments around the world become obsessed with something incredibly more safe and put unknown scores in jail for using it. Notable exceptions are countries like Canada, which is the first country to legalize the use of medical marijuana.[xvii][xvii]
It is difficult to believe that the possession of an ounce of cocaine or a "street sale" is a more dangerous or serious offence than the rape of a ten year old, the burning down of a building occupied by people, or the killing of another human being while intending to cause him serious injury.
Judge James L. Oakes
United States Court of Appeals
In November 1996 the people of California approved Proposition 215. Under the state law, patients or their primary caregivers who possess or cultivate marijuana for medical treatment recommended by a physician are exempted from federal criminal prosecution, or so it was hoped. Marijuana has a wide variety of therapeutic applications that includes relief from nausea and increase of appetite, reduction of inner eye pressure in Glaucoma patients, reduction of muscle spasms; and relief from chronic pain. In AIDS marijuana can reduce the nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite caused by the ailment itself and by various AIDS medications. In Cancer it can stimulate the appetite and alleviate nausea and vomiting, which are common side effects of chemotherapy treatment. And in Multiple Sclerosis marijuana can limit the muscle pain and spasticity caused by the disease, as well as relieving tremor and unsteadiness of gait. It has also been suggested that Cannabis could be very effective in treating anorexia.[xviii][xviii]
Scientific evidence overwhelmingly indicates that cannabis is substantially less harmful than alcohol and should be treated not as a criminal issue but as a social and public health issue.

Recently a government report about the negative effects of antidepressants in childrensuppressed by the US Food and Drug Administrationhas surfaced indicating that children taking antidepressants were twice as likely to become suicidal as children taking placebo. An expert with the FDA's Office of Drug Safety, Dr Andrew Mosholder, reportedly urged the FDA to follow the lead of British health authorities by warning doctors that the risks of the newer antidepressants might outweigh the benefits when used in children.[xix][xix] A whole case can be made for substituting a relatively safe drug like marijuana for the more toxic drugs offered by doctors and pharmaceutical giants when it comes to many mental and emotional problems in adults and children. There is only one great problem in this. There is no money to be made from a common weed that anybody with two thumbs can grow themselves.
In June 2001, a jury ordered GlaxoSmithKline, the maker of Paxil, to pay $6.5 million to the relatives of Donald Schell, who, two days after starting on the drug, murdered his wife, his daughter and his granddaughter before killing himself. Christopher Pittman, who at 12 years of age killed both his grandparents, is said to have done so for a reason beyond the boy's control - a reaction to the antidepressant Zoloft, a drug he had started taking for depression not long before the slayings.[xx][xx]
Christopher committed the murders while in a psychotic state induced by Zoloft.

"It seems to me if one is going to need to use drugs, one ought to consider a relatively safe drug, like marijuana," said Bernard Rimland, Ph.D. of the Autism Research Institute.[xxi][xxi] Marijuana, the forbidden medicine, seems to be useful for some people with adult attention deficit disorder, impulse disorders and bipolar disorder. Some families have found marijuana to be nothing short of miraculous. Some of the symptoms marijuana has ameliorated include anxiety--even severe anxiety--aggression, panic disorder, generalized rage, tantrums, property destruction and self-injurious behavior.[xxii][xxii] One mother commenting on using marijuana for her autistic child said, "I know it's not the end all answer but it's been the best answer for the longest time for us in regards to ALL the other medications. I cannot tell you how many months we would go on a medication wondering if it was doing anything, anything at all. Here we can see the difference in 30-60 minutes guaranteed."
It boggles my mind to think that our government officials are spending so much time and money to obstruct the use of a medication that might actually help cancer patients tolerate their chemotherapy, AIDS patients gain a little weight, glaucoma patients suffer less.
Dr. Kate Scannell
According to Dr. Rimland, "Clearly, medical marijuana is not a drug to be administered lightly. But compare its side effects to the known effects of Risperdal,[xxiii][xxiii] which include massive weight gain, a dramatically increased risk of diabetes, and an elevated risk of deadly heart problems, as well as a host of other major and minor problems. Other psychotropic drugs are no safer, causing symptoms ranging from debilitating tardive dyskinesia to life-threatening malignant hyperthermia or sudden cardiac arrest. Of all drugs, the psychotropic drugs are among the least useful and most dangerous, and the benefit/risk profile of medical marijuana seems fairly benign in comparison." He continues, "The reports we are seeing from parents indicate that medical marijuana often works when no other treatments, drug or non-drug, have helped".
According to Dr. Lester Grinspoon, "A recent poll conducted by Medscape, a website directed at health care providers, 76 percent of physicians and 89 percent of nurses said they thought marijuana should be available as a medicine. The dramatic change of view is the result of clinical experience. Doctors and nurses have seen that for many patients Cannabis is more useful, less toxic, and less expensive than the conventional medicines prescribed for diverse syndromes and symptoms, including multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, migraine headaches, severe nausea and vomiting, convulsive disorders, the AIDS wasting syndrome, chronic pain, and many others."[xxiv][xxiv]
High-ranking government officials in the United States have referred to the concept of medical marijuana as a hoax. One might ask why the government of the United States, the leading oppositional force to its legalization, clings so tenaciously to its insular and harmful policy? Dr. Kate Scannell writes passionately about this issue saying, "I've seen one too many old men spend their final hours nauseated and vomiting while their distressed and helpless families watched. One too many women with cancer who linger, bone-thin and languid, as their loved ones beg for "something" to make them feel better. And I, like so many doctors, have witnessed the therapeutic relief that many such patients experience after using marijuana. Their illnesses become less miserable, their difficult deaths are made more tolerable. And those reasons explain precisely why the federal government's relentless attempts to bar patients from access to medical marijuana constitute both cruel and unusual crimes against us all. They are wrong-headed and politically driven obsessions, not compassionate advisements intended to relieve human suffering." [xxv][xxv]
"I live very close to the Clements Unit prison farm that houses nonviolent drug offenders. On a daily basis I see these young men, most of them my age and younger, spending their days working in the fields harvesting cotton and corn. These men were convicted of selling drugs to their peers or perhaps caught bringing drugs across the border from Mexico. Yet the man that administered my son a lethal cocktail of vaccinations then refused to pay any attention to the symptoms of the reaction is still in practice. This man in essence murdered my son, yet he goes to work in the morning and sleeps well every night," wrote Jennifer Johnson. And she continued with, "My mother is also a breast cancer survivor. As her daughter I suffered watching her fight the medication given to her to combat the disease. Days would go by that she would cry because of the effects of the chemo. Years after the cancer has gone into remission the flashbacks of the chemotherapy is what haunts her. She remembers the taste in her mouth and the feeling in the pit of her stomach. I firmly believe that marijuana would have benefited her in so many ways and perhaps spared her a lot of the discomfort she had to deal with."[xxvi][xxvi]
So why is it people like Bush and Ashcroft and many others defend criminal laws which are cruel in their inception? The answer is really simple. They are defenders of pharmaceutical terrorism, defenders of companies like Eli Lilly Company which is responsible for decades of injecting thimerosal/mercury into infants. Why? Just look at the facts reported recently by the CBS Sixty Minutes show. "Since 1999, these legislators have accepted more than a million and a half dollars in campaign contributions from people working in the pharmaceutical industry. President Bush alone has received more than half a million dollars."[xxvii][xxvii]
There is a whole group of men who are guilty of insanity, a crime or great ignorance the world is blind to. And they will continue to remain culpable because, like most insane people, the last thing they will ever become aware of and admit is their own insanity of purpose, thought, deed and being. Just look at the fact that the present Secretary of Defense is responsible almost single-handedly for driving through the approval of aspartame into the worlds food chain and you will begin to see the dimension of an inclination toward the chemical rape of humanity. What you see is a vast madness that has the FDA approving the most harmful toxic substances and drugs for public use while holding back and making illegal the safest most benign and useful substances like marijuana. And now even vitamins and other health products are under attack.
But this is not the real insanity, not really, not by a long shot. What is infinitely sadder is the fact that those who profit, those who drink in the power, those who are deceiving parents are using the love that parents have for their children against them. They are using and manipulating parents love to scare them into injecting their precious children with the most dangerous substances known to man while thinking they are practically saints for doing so. They are lying to parents and deceiving the world making a mockery of medical science and modern civilization. They are conditioning a generation of doctors, nurses and dentists in a way Rev. Moon could never hope to. The real madness is that 90 percent or more of the human race is with them, true believers, caught up in the madness hook, line and sinker. It does not take a long stretch of the imagination to see where the inspiration for the movie the Matrix came from.

[i] Haley, Boyd. Thimerosal exposure results in toxic biochemical effects that fit very well with the biochemical observations seen in autistics. These are (1) truncated neurons (ethylmercury inhibition of tubulin polymerization) in brain tissue and (2) inability to make methyl-B12 (Dr. Deth's work on thimerosal inhibition of the enzyme methionine synthetase) and (3) the subsequent decrease in methylation of cellular constitutents that require methylation to operate properly.

As of the end of 2002, the VAERS system contained 244,424 total reports of possible reactions to vaccines, including 99,145 emergency room visits, 5,149 life-threatening reactions, 27,925 hospitalizations, 5,775 disabilities, and 5,309 deaths[ii], according to data compiled by Dr. Mark Geier, a vaccine researcher in Silver Spring, Md. The data represents roughly 1 billion doses of vaccines, according to Geier. Dr. J. Anthony Morris, former Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the US Federal Drug Administration agrees that such evidence has great bearing on the entire vaccination question saying, "There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children does more harm than good"
[iii] Children's brain development is being impaired by some of the more than 70,000 human-made chemicals on the market, says a new report from the World Wildlife Fund. The report, which surveyed current research in the field, charges chemicals with such neurological effects as poor memory, reduced visual recognition and motor skills, and lower IQ, and cites U.S. research that ties 10 percent of all neurobehavioral disorders to chemical exposure. While it singles out some chemicals by name -- particularly brominated flame-retardants, PCBs, and dioxins -- the report laments that there is little to no safety information available on most chemicals floating about in the environment and in households. "In effect, we are all living in a global chemical experiment of which we don't know the outcome," said WWF's Helen McDade. According to the National Academy of Sciences, many American children are born every year with brains damaged by prenatal exposure to methyl mercury compounds from fossil-fuel and industrial air pollution. Yet vaccines are of special concern for their toxic chemicals are injected directly into the body and some of its components pass directly through the blood brain barrier to affect the nervous system especially the brains own immune system cells, the microglia. Dr. Russell Blaylock, a prominent neurosurgeon, tells us that, "several things can activate microglia, including pesticides, MSG, viruses, mycroplasma, bacteria, stress, aluminum, mercury, and immune adjuvants."

[vii] The War on Drugs has so changed societal conditions that rural counties, which were once places so safe that people left their doors unlocked, are now quite dangerous. This war has been nothing short of disastrous for civilization; its a war not based on any kind of sane rationality, no logical reason, no lines to differentiate between legal and illegal, between alcohol and lighter drugs like Marijuana. But in essence, no rationalization justifies what America is doing to people and their families in the name of fighting drugs. The U.S. government propaganda about the "war on drugs" disguises the fact that this is a war on people. In a civilized society, war is a response by the government to a military attack from a hostile power. In a civilized society, the government does not make war upon its own people.

[ix] Kimmey, Michael B. Examining the Risk/Benefit Ratio of Long-term Aspirin Therapy.
[x] New England Journal of Medicine: "It has been estimated conservatively that 16,500 NSAID-related deaths occur among patients with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis every year in the United States. This figure is similar to the number of deaths from the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and considerably greater than the number of deaths from multiple myeloma, asthma, cervical cancer, or Hodgkin's disease. If deaths from gastrointestinal toxic effects from NSAIDs were tabulated separately in the National Vital Statistics reports, these effects would constitute the 15th most common cause of death in the United States. Yet these toxic effects remain mainly a "silent epidemic," with many physicians and most patients unaware of the magnitude of the problem. Furthermore the mortality statistics do not include deaths ascribed to the use of over-the-counter NSAIDS."
[xi] Source: US Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Agency, "In the Matter of Marijuana Rescheduling Petition," [Docket #86-22] (September 6, 1988), p. 57. On September 6, 1988, the Drug Enforcement Administration's Chief Administrative Law Judge, Francis L. Young, ruled: "Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known....[T]he provisions of the [Controlled Substances] Act permit and require the transfer of marijuana from Schedule I to Schedule II. It would be unreasonable, arbitrary and capricious for the DEA to continue to stand between those sufferers and the benefits of this substance." The DEA's Administrative Law Judge, Francis Young concluded: "In strict medical terms marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume. For example, eating 10 raw potatoes can result in a toxic response. By comparison, it is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death. Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man. By any measure of rational analysis marijuana can be safely used within the supervised routine of medical care."

[xiii][xiii] Claudia French RN. - "Marijuana in the US today has greater potency than it used to. I can confirm this from what I see of the many people admitted to the hospital where I work. Some of the people we see in severe depression test positive for THC, and smoke marijuana on a daily basis. They can't work, have lost motivation to do anything but smoke MJ, and it doesn't help their depression. Most have no desire whatsoever to stop using it or live without it, and many feel they cannot function on a daily basis without it. It is very difficult to help someone who uses it at this level, to stop doing it. Drug agencies all over the country show very low rates of success in stopping addictions, to any illegal drug. And it is frequent that MJ is used in combination with many other substances. Illegal substance abuse seems to have become a way of life, and our hospital unit is frequently filled with at least half of our census of 30 with people needing to detox off drugs or alcohol. In the past year I have seen this increase tremendously. It feels like we are becoming a substance abuse treatment program. But now I'm talking about any kind of substances, THC, ETOH, crack cocaine, heroin, opiods (real high admissions on this one). And these people are the very most violent when brought in high, and most difficult to help gain control of themselves. Or many of them are half dead, for all that they've taken in combination. These are not statistics, just personal observations over the years."
[xiv][xiv] The number of people in the United States who die iatrogenic deaths is estimated by Dr. Barbara Starfield to be approximately 225,000 to 284,000 a year, which included 106,000 deaths from properly prescribed medicine. These are considered avoidable deaths occurring at the hands of doctors in hospitals. Gary Null Ph.D. and his medical colleagues estimate the iatrogenic death figures much higher 786,000 by including outpatient deaths estimated at 199,000 (noted but not included by Starfield), and other categories of iatrogenic deaths like malnutrition perpetuated in hospitals, bedsores and infections - 108,000, 115,000, and 88,000 respectively. The high end of these numbers represents 6 jumbo jets falling out of the sky each and every day and that is just for the population in America.
[xv][xv] The dental profession use of mercury based amalgam dental fillings and the serious damage that comes from constantly leaking amalgam that spill vaporous mercury into the oral cavity. We will find dentists contributing greatly to the mercury poisoning of the human race through the use of materials, that when removed from the mouth, are considered highly dangerous toxic waste by the Environmental Protection Agency and must be handled in a certain way to protect dental office personnel from mercury poisoning. Many dentists know of the dangers of removal and recommend leaving the amalgams in, believing it is healthier to maintain toxic waste dumps in human mouths.
[xvi][xvi] A careful reading of the published medical research clearly demonstrates that all sensible concern for published scientific research regarding the toxicity of mercury has been cast aside exposing the entire worlds population to grave unwarranted harm. Mercury is a cumulative poison, and used with other toxic substances in medicine, like aluminum, antibiotics, and formaldehyde, create lethal and semi-lethal cocktails that damage human life. As each year passes scientists in laboratories around the world are showing that mercury poisoning is creating a wide swath of iatrogenic disease.
[xvii][xvii] The Ontario Court of Appeal decided in July 2000 to strike down a federal law prohibiting the possession of less than 30 grams of marijuana. The court ruled that banning marijuana for medicinal purposes violates the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. One year later, Canada became the first country to adopt a system regulating the medicinal use of marijuana.

ACID OR ALKALINE?
Acid or Alkaline?
Forget cholesterol counts. Forget calories and fat grams. Forget blood pressure, blood sugar, hormone levels, or any of the other markers of health youre used to at the doctors office. The single measurement most important to your health is the pH of your blood and tissues how acid or alkaline they are. Different areas of the body have different ideal pH levels, but blood pH is the most telling. Just as your body temperature is rigidly regulated, your blood must be kept in a very narrow pH range close to 7.365. The body will go to great lengths (its "survival!") to preserve that, including wreaking havoc on other tissues or systems.
This is what biochemist Dr. Robert O. Young says. His theory is that the over-acidification of the body is the single underlying cause of all disease. In contrast, modern Western medicine, based on the work of Louis Pasteur in the late 1800s, stems from the idea that disease comes from germs, infectious agents and other kinds of parasites which invade the body from the outside. Dr. Young suggests that Pasteur confused the symptoms with the disease itself and that this misconception still distorts medical thinking today.
A researcher and contemporary of Louis Pasteur, Dr. Antoine Bechamp (1816 1908), was able to show that when our bodies are over-acidic, we create the environment to support germs and infectious agents and can even manufacture them (microforms) out of our very own blood cells! This theory is known as "Pleomorphism." It means that, given the correct environment, cells in our body can change form and even DNA patterns so as to help stabilize and balance our inner chemical terrain. A blood cell can mutate into a bacterium which then can mutate into a fungus which can eventually mutate into mold (last stage of cellular decay and death). The Pleomorphism concept was ignored by the medical establishment which flocked to Pasteur. Better for getting research monies and find simple solutions to every problem!
Have you noticed that some people get colds easily or tire out quickly whereas others never "catch" anything and keep going all day? Intestinal parasites or any environmental germs that enter our body can only stay and thrive if we provide an acidic environment to support them. And our bodies wont create bacteria out of blood cells if we have the correct pH terrain.
Health and pH; How Your Body Responds
If you eat the standard American diet (SAD), youll undoubtedly be acid. Meat and pasta (refined flour) are some of the worst offenders. But you can get overacid from eating even the so-called healthy diets diets that include fresh fruit, chicken, peanut butter, and even bottled water! Theres not one fad diet today that alkalizes people. We can get acidic from being emotionally stressed too, and not breathing in enough oxygen. Then there are environmental pollutants that create physical stress. Whats a body to do?
A healthy body has reserves of alkaline minerals the most alkaline of which is Calcium. When the blood starts to get too acid, the body releases a sufficient amount of ionic Calcium into the blood to balance the body and slough off the acid. However, with a poor diet or prolonged physical and/or emotional stress, the reserves get depleted. The population of microforms such as candida explode, taking over the digestive tract and expanding from there into other body systems. The irony of this is that the microforms get our food first and feed themselves. They then dump their digestive byproducts acid (could you guess?) into our system. As we try to cope with the acid overload, we dont get the energy or nutrition we could from our food. This depletes us even more, and fatigue can set in. Overloaded, the body will respond by storing or stashing the excess acid and buffering it, usually with fat/overweight. Our body is protecting our organs this way, but if the overload is even worse, the body will breakdown into dis-eases and painful conditions.
Here are some conditions related to excess acid:
Overweight? The fat cells swell up to store excess acid. That "beer belly" is really an "acid belly." Skin eruptions? Acid coming out. Osteoporosis? The blood "borrowing" the highly alkaline mineral Calcium from the bones to balance acid blood and restore it to proper pH balance. Pain? Acid stuck in the tissues. You know that achy ness you get with exercise? Lactic acid dumping into the lymph system for removal. Any and all digestive problems? Acid-alkaline imbalance in stomach, small and large intestines. Inflammations and infections? Acid once again, supporting the in-house creation of microforms leading to bacteria, strep, staph, candida, yeasts, viruses, and mold. Arthritis? Acid in the joints. Panic attacks, depression and emotional disturbances? Acid from microforms (such as candida or bacteria) hitting the central nervous system and glands. Cancer? Ultimate acid destruction of tissues such long term acidity and lack of oxygen, as well as the resources to clear acidity that the microforms morph into molds, creating pits of necrotic (dead) tissue. The list goes on and on all conditions can be shown in one way or another to be acid damage.
The bad news is that you cant heal these conditions if you stay on an acid-producing diet and/or suffer prolonged stress. The good news is that acidic conditions are easily reversible with a proper alkaline-producing diet and nutritional supplements. People with the so-called "serious" diseases - cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease have been able to reverse and sometimes heal these conditions within months. If you wanted the ultimate weight loss diet, here it is! Pounds seem to melt off overweight people and underweight people are able to gain again! When your pH is balanced, so are you!
Educating Yourself about Acid and Alkaline
Ive given you the concept in a nutshell. To learn more about this topic, I recommend three excellent resources.
First, The book "Sick and Tired" by Robert O. Young. In this book, youll actually see snapshots from the video that Dr. Young took of a bacterium changing into a red blood cell! Pleomorphism demonstrated! The book explains a lot of conditions and the acid causes. Theres only one drawback I have found. Dr. Young can get a bit fanatic in his mostly-vegan enthusiasm as he discourages the reader from eating peanut butter, chicken, etc. with long lists of ugly fungi and bacteria found in these foods. Keep the positive stuff and ignore the extra negativity and youll find this book a wonderful resource.
I bought my copy at the local health food supermarket, but if you dont see it there or decide not to order it from your retailer, you can always find it on the internet at your favorite book shopping site. If you decide to do neither, call me and Ill look up a phone number for you to call.
Secondly, the "Perfect Health Made Simple" Course from James LeBeau. If you enjoy biochemical study and wish to apply the acid-alkaline understandings you have to your own unique situation/diet/body, there is a "course" of study that is excellent. In it youll discover your metabolic type determined by your pH values of urine and saliva at different times of the day. You can take charge of your healing process this way. There are lots of amazing details in this extremely informative program. I highly recommend this option for those who like to manage their health in a very responsible way and/or who have symptoms that may not be the "regular" problems "most" people have.
The first book in the course is entitled "Perfect Health Made Simple I; Balance Your PH." The second book "Perfect Health Made Simple II; Balance Your Digestion" builds on the first one so that you can literally change and heal anything you may have out of balance in your body chemistry. Again, many details. The downside of these books is that author James LeBeau can get preachy for Christianity here and there and there is no index in the back. If you forget where you read a wonderfully important detail, it may take from here to Christmas to find it again! You wont find this at your local store. Check out the site http://www.stopcancer.com/2.htm with info on pH and questions to ask about your own bodys system. Youll need to order the books from this website or go directly to LeBeaus website; http://www.perfecthealthfoundation.org You can also order them by contacting The Perfect Health Foundation, P.O. Box 395, Thiensville, WI 53092 (send 2 first class stamps and youll receive info package), or just call # 262-242-9970.
Thirdly, the book "The PH Miracle" also by Dr. Robert O. Young, with Shelley Young. This book differs from "Sick and Tired" in that there is much less biochemistry in it. It has helpful lists of the most acid to the most alkaline foods and teaches you how to transition into and embrace an alkaline producing diet. The second half of the book has recipes for juicing, alternatives to the usual diets/foods, various meal plans, and food dehydration instructions (with recipes of course). Again, buy this at your local health food supermarket or order online. A recent book released from Dr. Young recaps this general information but with a focus on Diabetes.
How to become more alkaline and balance your body
Okay, lets say you dont want to start out studying educational materials. You want to get going fast. In that case, I recommend you try some products that help the body in its alkalizing process. Some of these products are not found in your health food store because they come from Dr. Youngs Multi-Level-Marketing company. He formulated a whole slew of helpful products for different foci, but the basic products are the most profound. If you do NOTHING else or make ANY changes, Dr. Young estimates that taking these next two products, Super Greens and Prime pH will give you a 40% or more benefit. So, heres a great place to start. Ive been on this easy program of the 2 products for 2 months now and can tell that benefits are starting to show. If youre overweight, youll find these products begin taking off pounds right away. The fellow who signed me up lost almost a pound a day for close to 3 months. He also did the whole dietary regime along with the two products, but now that his weight and blood pressure are nicely down, HE is very convinced of the benefits of going more alkaline!
Now I am not into making big MLM money any more (been there, done that). If these products were in a supermarket, I'd still tell you about them. So don't feel at all pressured by me to get these products or sell them. I just think this is the easiest place to start without having to go through a lot of change really fast. For other dietary info, regimes and possibilities, check out "PH Miracle" and "Balance Your Metabolism" by James LeBeau and Dr. Peschek - info given above.
Heres more detail on the two products:
Alkalizing Water; Prime pH
The most important thing you must learn is to hydrate the body with alkalizing water. Like the earth on which we live, our bodies are 70% water. Food cravings are often the body's cry for water. Alkaline water has a pH between 9 and 11, and will neutralize harmful stored acid wastes and gently remove them from the tissues. Alkaline water oxygenates the blood as well, similar to the action of hydrogen peroxide (without the taste or liabilities). Taking Prime pH gets alkalinity past the stomach acid (which is produced in the presence of acid-producing foods such as sugars, meats etc.) and into the bloodstream quickly via water. In a one-liter or quart bottle, put 10 15 drops of Prime pH. Drink at least a gallon of water a day to get the cleansing and alkalizing going.
SuperGreens Powder contains 49 organically-grown grasses, sprouted grains and green vegetables and leaves which infuse the body with more than 125 easily absorbed vitamins, minerals and amino acids (and no mushroom or yeast-grown sources). SuperGreens are also super concentrated in a 20 to 1 ratio (it takes 20 parts of alkaline to neutralize one part of acid) to immediately go to work eliminating acid wastes from the body.
Take the SuperGreens with the Prime pH together for an amazing "energy in a bottle." When I first drank this stuff, I felt that light was flowing into my veins. Yes, the lights go "on!" I do this at least two times a day the Greens and Prime pH together. It is easiest to keep your SuperGreens drink in a quart bottle so you can shake it up to keep the greens well mixed. Mix up a bottle at a time and drink it at room temperature within an hour (after that, the benefits of the activation by Prime pH is reduced a LOT).
What I do is two quarts with Super Greens and Prime pH first thing upon arising. Hydrates the body and keeps me more regular. Then I have two more quarts with just the Prime pH. Its recommended to do at least 4 quarts a day with at least the Prime pH. For one person, a months supply is the * pound SuperGreens and the 1 or 2 oz Prime pH. Its called "The Cornerstone Pack." See below for details.
The "Soft Calcium" Soak
Finally, this product isnt one Ive tried as yet, but from what Ive heard its going to be THE cincher in my quest for alkalinity and healing. Another MLM is putting this one out, available by late September 2004. This one has bioavailable Calcium and other minerals in a bath soak you use once a week. That will keep your Calcium reserves high and your ionic Calcium in your blood ready and available to neutralize acids. And your body wont have to "borrow" your alkaline minerals from your bones just to stay alive! This may be the easiest way to build alkaline reserves and reverse bone loss! I am just salivating over this I can hardly wait.
This company, Alliance The Next Generation, also has other products that have a profound effect on the body. A cream (called "The Gift") can take away moles, warts, acne, age spots, and other skin imperfections. People claim they have healed skin cancers with it. "Liquid Life" in a cellular reprogrammer, helping balance your cells inner chemical terrain. Lots more good stories on this one. And the company has a weight loss product that seems to melt off pounds just by adding this one product to your daily program, no other changes required.
Write me at email@example.com if you want more information. Right now, the Alliance website is undergoing a transformation and so you cant find detailed information onsite about these products. If you wish to go ahead and sign up anyway, youll have to do it by phone. Call Sid Michael at 814-836-2720 to sign up and order. Since Alliance is also a MLM, your sponsor is me; Ginger Metraux, Distributor # GM1357. Have your credit card handy.
Heres more basic/extra info and my ideas/personal experiences with pH.
Our bodies were designed to be co-participants with our Souls and Spirits in the fulfillment of our spiritual lives. As is the nature of duality, we must find balance between all our various "pieces" of self. When we are in balance and harmony, our lives are filled with magic, purpose, love and joy. When we are out of balance, we are being given "messages" that enable us to grow and learn our way back into the divine balance and ultimately, transcend duality and move into Oneness with All (including God/Goddess/All That Is).
The body must find balance too, just as our consciousnesses do. We have been given bodies with the ability to heal themselves of imbalances and injury so as to find and maintain their balance, comfort, and pleasure. Both body chemistry and body mechanics function this way. As you may know, Ive had a considerable amount of physical challenges. Ive worked diligently on my mechanics (TMJ, sacrum-lumbar alignment, etc.) and have amassed a wealth of information about that.
My chemistry was another experience. Doctors and even most alternative practitioners were clueless about how my body worked, as it seemed to have too many "exceptions" to the rules, and didnt function or respond like "regular" bodies. So I studied nutrition and biochemistry myself. Over the years, there were just too many details to figure out and no theories or methods seemed to cover all the different symptoms my body would manifest at any given time.
Two years ago, as I seemed to be getting much better, I had a severe allergic reaction to an injection a doctor gave me. My health plummeted, and I went through tremendous despair over ever being able to live a normal (for me) life. Finally, I looked at a two-volume set of books (by James LeBeau, see above) that had sat on my health resource shelves for almost 10 years. I guess I wasnt willing before now! With this information, along with two other books on nutrition I read, I realized that there IS a concept/theory that covers ALL my symptoms at once! Elegance!
As I apply this theory, I am now finding my way back out of the pit. As I mentioned before, living in duality is a balancing act. Chemically speaking, the body must balance many substances. You are probably familiar with supplements that show certain proportions on the label of Calcium with Magnesium, Sodium with Potassium, Copper with Zinc, etc. If you get too much of one and not enough of the other, you go out of balance. Then your body has to kick in one of its systems to "correct" the imbalance. The systems themselves can go out of balance. When youre hit with an infection, you can bet youre out of balance and the body is trying to correct itself.
The most basic aspect of body chemistry, if youre ever taken chemistry in school, is the acid-alkaline balance. It is referred to as pH. In the range of pH from 1 to 14, 7 is neutral. Anything lower is acid and higher is alkaline. Our stomach cannot process our food if it doesnt have enough acid to break down stuff. Our blood will "borrow" minerals from our bones if we dont have enough ionic Calcium and other alkaline minerals to keep the blood at close to 7.365 pH.
A diet high in acid foods such as meat, dairy grains, high sugar fruits and bread, causes acid wastes to build up in the body. When acid wastes enter our blood stream, the blood system will attempt to dispose of these wastes in liquid form through the lungs or the kidneys. If there are too many wastes to handle, they are deposited in various organ systems like the heart, pancreas, liver, colon, and other locations. The breakdown of this disposal process of acid waste could also be called "the aging process". To slow down and reverse this process, one must begin by removing this over-acidification of the blood and tissues by including liberal amounts of alkaline water in the diet.

Menu Suggestions for Quick Alkaline Eating
NOTE: A host of rejuvenating recipes to alkalize and energize for life are now available in Shelley Young's wonderful recipe book Back to the House of Health.
BREAKFAST: Hot Millet Salad is a delicious and satisfying hot and cold combination. Millet is an ancient, more alkaline grain. For each serving bring * cup millet and 1 cup water to a boil. Cover; turn to simmer for 25 minutes. Place cook millet in a soup plate. Drizzle some flax oil over the top and spray lightly with Bragg's Aminos for flavor. Cut over the top * avocado and * tomato. Break a handful of sunflower sprouts over the top and toss on a handful off sliced, raw almonds. Spray lightly again with Bragg's Aminos. This will hold you until two or three in the afternoon!
Vegetable Soup is satisfying and can be used for any meal for the next few days. Lightly stir fry some cut up vegetables such as green beans, celery, zucchini, yellow squash, red peppers, leeks, onions, garlic, shredded cabbage, etc., in a little vegetable broth or water. Put in a pot of heated vegetable broth. Flavor with spices such as herbs de Province, oregano, basil, parsley, etc. Add some Bragg's Aminos/Real Salt for flavor. Sprinkle with flax, sunflower seeds or sliced almonds. You may desire an unsalted brown rice cake with almond butter to go with the soup or some sprouted wheat tortilla chips dipped in humus or almond butter. Cut up a package of Alvarado Street Sprouted Wheat Tortillas into pie-shaped pieces and place on two baking sheets. Lightly toast at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Buckwheat cereal with almond milk is quick and filling on a cold morning. Buckwheat groats, cracked or cream of buckwheat are available in most health food stores.
Steamed broccoli is an excellent choice for breakfast. Lightly steam broccoli for 5 minutes. You may add chopped onion and/or another green vegetable. Lightly stir in some Basic Salad Dressing and top with soaked almonds or hazelnuts. To soak nuts, place enough for the day in a container and cover with water. Place in the refrigerator overnight. Drain the next morning and enjoy. Rinse twice a day.
Basic Salad Dressing

1 cup cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
* teaspoon ground oregano
* teaspoon ground cumin
* teaspoon garlic powder
* teaspoon Zip, by Spice Hunter (or a dash of cayenne pepper) 1-Tablespoon Bragg's Aminos
LUNCH: Salads are great for any meal. Keep spinach and darker, leafy lettuces cleaned (use a salad spinner to remove excess water) and place in a covered container, with a paper towel in the bottom, in the refrigerator. This way it feels like a salad is almost ready to serve. Then build a salad fit for a king or queen with your choice of the following: fresh avocado, tomato, sprouts, green or purple onion, cucumber, celery, peppers, etc.. Cut over the top some chunks of White Wave Italian Baked Tofu or fresh, firm tofu. If desired, add a few spoonfuls of humus/salsa. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds or sliced almonds. Toss with Basic Salad Dressing.
Wrap It Up! Start with an Alvarado Street Sprouted Wheat Tortilla, burrito-size. Spread on some humus, cut on some avocado and tomatoes. Add some alfalfa spouts, black beans or garbanzo bean, and spray with Bragg's Amino and top with fresh salsa/pesto. Then wrap it up!
Madrid Gazpacho Soup is an easy, raw, blender soup. Blend 3 large tomatoes, 2 cucumbers, 1 red pepper, and 1 small jalapeno pepper. Add 1 quart of distilled water, 3 tablespoons olive oil, the juice of 2 lemons, 1-teaspoon ground cumin, and 2 teaspoons Real Salt. Add garlic to taste. Blend in blender in portions a second time to emulsify oil. Chill in the refrigerator. Place in bowls and garnish with chopped tomatoes, celery green onions, cucumbers, red peppers, and avocados.
DINNER: An Alkalarian Stir Fry can be completed in about 20 minutes from start to finish.
Bring water to a boil and break one package of Buckwheat Soba Noodles by Eden into fourths into the boiling water. Cook for allotted time and drain. While noodles are cooking, sauté 1/2 package of cubed extra firm tofu in a little Braggs Aminos and vegetable broth for about 5 minutes in a large frying pan. Remove from pan and set aside.

IODINE AND BREAST CANCER
The Iodine-Thyroid fix
by Candis McLean
A B. C. doctor's new treatment for breast cancer is being promoted in a Web site that was opened in February. The organization behind the Web site, http://www bites-medical.org, is the Breast Iodine Thyroid Effectiveness Society, incorporated in October to promote research and debate on the little known connection between breast cancer, iodine and thyroid.
The group is made up primarily of patients of Victoria, B. C., physician David Derry, 63, author of the 2001 book, Breast Cancer and Iodine [Trafford Publishing 1-888-232-4444 or firstname.lastname@example.org] In it, he points out that breast cancer mortality rates are unchanged since records were first kept in the 1920s; today, one in eight Canadian women can expect to develop breast cancer during her lifetime.
Dr. Derry's radical new thesis suggests a specific dose of the old fashioned antiseptic, iodine, prevents many diseases, including breast, prostate, ovarian and colon cancer.
"I propose that, iodine and thyroid hormone act as a team to provide a constant surveillance against abnormal cell development, chemicals that are carcinogenic, and the spread of cancer cells within the body," writes Dr. Derry, who, in addition to holding an M. D., has a PhD in neurochemistry and is a former University of Toronto Medical Research Council Scholar. "Cancer grows so slowly when using iodine and thyroid hormone therapy that the cancer will not affect the lives of the patients who have it. The treatment is non-invasive, inexpensive and safe."
Dr. Derry also credits iodine with several other roles in the body:
It protects against abnormal growth of bacteria in the stomach. It detoxifies chemicals, food poisoning, snake venom, etc. It coats incoming allergic proteins to make them non-allergic, and probably defuses autoimmune disease mechanisms in the same way.
The problem, according to Dr. Derry, is the low dietary intake of iodine in the Canadian diet, particularly with iodized salt intake being generally reduced since the 1950s, depriving people of "the most important element in the human diet." What little iodine is consumed, is captured first by the "master gland," the thyroid, to produce thyroid hormone, leaving little or none for other functions such as fighting cancer.
"I believe that if the iodine intake of the nations were raised to levels above the saturation point of the thyroid," Dr. Derry writes, "there would be a precipitous drop in the cancer rate of the nation to levels similar to those of Japan. There, rates of breast, prostate and thyroid cancer are among the lowest in the world, and iodine intake is the highest due to consumption of seaweed."
"These levels of five to 10 mg. of iodine daily can be easily reached with Lugol's [iodine] solution," he explains, "one drop per day." Dr. Derry recommends the drop of iodine each day be taken in a glass of juice to cover the mild taste.
One who champions the treatment is 62-year-old RN Frankie Staples of Victoria. Diagnosed with breast cancer six years ago, she had a lump surgically removed, followed by radiation therapy. Dr. Derry then placed her on natural thyroid hormone plus iodine: 10 drops per day. "I used to have cystic lumps of the worst kind, known to turn to cancer at over 10 times the normal rate; now I have no lumps at all. None. I'm very healthy and have known many others who have had good results with the iodine treatment."
Dr. Derry argues that his practice is not revolutionary; he is merely returning to the traditional practice used between 1892 and 1973, before a "hoax" hit. A huge shipment of the natural desiccated thyroid made from pigs' thyroids was found to be mysteriously lacking in thyroid. As a result of this scandal, patients got sick, and the use of dessicated thyroid was largely discontinued in favour of the new, man made chemical, Synthroid.
Suspicions about Synthroid have been growing ever since its arrival. Last week its manufacturer privately settled a class action lawsuit in the Ontario Superior Court, reportedly offering the litigants $2.25 million. They had claimed the manufacturer suppressed a negative study to maintain control of the thyroid market in Canada.
At the same time Synthroid was introduced, Dr. Derry says, "for no reason at all," dosages were dropped to one third their previous levels, and, rather than listening to patients' descriptions of their symptoms, doctors were taught to rely instead on a lab test. As a result, he says, the approximately 10% of the population who require thyroid according to lab tests are being under treated, while the many more who should be started on thyroid medication are not.
"This was all done with no scrap of evidence and no comparison studies being done, one of the biggest changes in the history of medicine, and it was never checked, causing the biggest disaster medically of all time," storms Dr. Derry. "The numbers are staggering, the diseases and deficiencies they have caused--including an epidemic of low IQs, learning disabilities and dyslexia among their children--are unbelievable, and the arrogance in their opinions and teaching has led to many unnecessary deaths."
Dr. Derry associates these dramatic medical changes in the mid 1970s with the number of new diseases that were either first noticed or that suddenly increased in the 1980s, including AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, autism, ADHD, sleep apnea, hepatitis C and Alzheimer's disease. He has found all of these ailments respond to thyroid treatment, including Alzheimer's caught in the early stages: "Brains sharpen within two weeks, although if Alzheimer's gets beyond me I can usually slow it, but can't reverse it," he says. After conducting his own successful informal study on AIDS and thyroid, he attempted to do a large scale double blind study, but found AIDS organizations uninterested.
"There's a great deal of ignorance about the fact that natural dessicated thyroid, a natural hormone, is the safest drug discovered in the last two centuries," he states.
Aerosol and Electromagnetic Weapons In The Age Of Nuclear War
By Amy Worthington
North America is now suffering its seventh year of conspicuous and dangerous aerosol and electromagnetic operations conducted by the U.S. government under the guise of national security. Concerned citizens watch in fear as military tankers discolor the skies with toxic chemicals that morph into synthetic clouds.
We continually witness bizarre meteorological occurrences as powerful electromagnetic devices manipulate both the jet stream and individual storm fronts to create artificial weather and climatic conditions. Black operations projects embedded within these aerosol missions are documented to sicken and disorient select populations with biological test agents and psychotronic mind/mood control technologies.
Part of what is happening in the atmosphere above us involves the Pentagon's secret space weapons program, designed for strategic, operational and tactical levels of war. NASA missions will soon be transferred to Pentagon control.1 The Air Force Space Command declares that, in order to monitor and shape world events, it must fight intense, decisive wars with great precision from space.2 Air Force Secretary James G. Roche has stated: "Space capabilities are integrated with, and affect every link in the kill chain."3
A glimpse into new death technologies under construction is in legislation introduced by Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinch. His unsuccessful Space Preservation Act of 2001 was intended to ban space deployment of:4
* electronic, psychotronic and information weaponry
* high altitude ultra low frequency weapons
* plasma, electromagnetic, sonic and ultrasonic weapons
* laser weapons
* strategic, theater, tactical or extraterrestrial weapons
* chemical biological, environmental climate or tectonic weapons
* chemtrails (this item was stricken from a later version, suggesting duress)
In their quest to remain top dog in the kill chain, the purveyors of perpetual war have deliberately dimmed earth's life-giving sunlight,5 and reduced atmospheric visibility with lung-clogging particulates and polymers.6 This ecological terrorism has severely compromised public health, according to thousands of testimonials. Years of mass appeals to legislators, media and military officials for information, and for cessation of catastrophic atmospheric degradation, have fallen on deaf bureaucratic ears. Public awareness of what befalls us remains as murky as our skies because those "in the know" are muzzled by national secrecy laws and Americans have no authority to challenge matters of national security. Left to gather clues, we know this much so far:
1. At least part of the aerosol project has been dubbed Operation Cloverleaf,7 probably due to its multi-faceted operations, which include: weather modification, military communications, space weapons development, ozone and global warming research plus biological weaponry and detection testing.
2. Dumping tons of particulate matter from aircraft has geo-engineered our planetary atmosphere into a highly charged, electrically-conductive plasma useful for military projects.8 The air we breathe is laden with asbestos-sized synthetic fibers and toxic metals, including barium salts, aluminum, and reportedly, radioactive thorium.9 These materials act as electrolytes to enhance conductivity of military radar and radio waves.10 Poisonous on par with arsenic and a proven suppressant of the human immune system,11 atmospheric barium weakens human muscles, including those of the heart.12 Inhaled aluminum goes directly to the brain and medical specialists confirm that it causes oxidative stress within brain tissue, leading to formation of Alzheimer's like neurofibrillary tangles.13 Radioactive thorium is known to cause leukemia and other cancers.14
3. Only a small percentage of the military's atmospheric modification projects are visibly obvious. What we can't see is equally dangerous. The ionosphere, the earth and its inhabitants are continually bombarded with high frequency microwaves used to manipulate the charged atmosphere for weather modification, information gathering and for tectonic (earthquake-producing) weaponry.15 Independent chemtrail researcher Clifford Carnicom confirms that we are also continuously subjected to extremely low electromagnetic frequencies (ELF) pulsing at 4 hertz multiples, frequencies known to profoundly affect human biological and mental functioning.16
4. There is a well-documented biological component to continuously ongoing atmospheric studies in which nations and regions are furtively inoculated via specially designed delivery systems with combinations of viruses, bacteria, fungi, mycoplasma, desiccated blood cells and exotic biological markers so that testmasters can assess human, animal and plant response.17
5. The multi-organizational megalith perpetrating these bio-chem projects against humanity includes the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and its research arm DARPA, plus the Department of Energy (DOE) with its huge network of national labs and universities. Private defense contractors and pharmaceutical companies are heavily involved.18 Cooperating governments of other nations and probably some United Nations agencies are complicit, since the aerosol projects are global in scope.
Gross chemical and electromagnetic pollution is only part of the horrific realities we endure. The sociopaths who brazenly pervert skies, climate and weather for power and profit are the same madmen who have waged four limited nuclear wars since 1991. Radioactive weaponry, declared both illegal and immoral by the entire civilized world, has been used by the Pentagon in Desert Storm, the Balkans campaign and the on-going occupation-wars against Afghanistan and Iraq. Few Americans understand the extent of carnage inflicted in their name across the planet.
By scientific definition, the missiles, tank penetrators and bunker busting bombs unleashed against Iraq and Afghanistan by U.S. and British forces in the so-called war on terror are nuclear weapons.19 Refuse from radioactive weaponry does not disperse, but remains in the atmosphere organotoxic, mutagenic and carcinogenic to all living flesh for 4.5 billion years.
Inhabitants of the Pentagon's two newly "liberated" nations are now slowly dying of radiation and heavy metal poisoning. Victims of U.S. weaponry used in Afghanistan have a concentration of non-depleted uranium isotopes in their bodies never before seen in civilian populations.20 Tons of depleted and non-depleted uranium contaminating their land, air, food and water guarantee their painful demise. Using data from the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA), nuclear scientist Leuren Moret calculates that the estimated 2,500+ tons of depleted uranium used against Iraq in 1991 and 2003 is sufficient to cause 25 million new cancers.21 Is it a coincidence that the population of Iraq, according to the CIA, is 25 million?
The quarter million U.S. and British fighting forces who have helped the Pentagon deliver this holocaust also face inevitable radiological death by slow burn. Rotated into atomic war zones since 2001, coalition troops have inhaled and ingested millions of tiny invisible ceramic uranium particles which emit alpha, beta and gamma radiation as they embed in lungs, kidneys, blood, lymph and bone.22 Radiation exposure to a single internalized U-238 (uranium) alpha particle is 50 times the allowable whole body dose for one year under international standards.23 As U-238 decays into daughter isotopes, it becomes ever more radioactive, causing cell and organ destruction to escalate over time.24 Uranium contamination leads to incapacitating, multi-organ system disorders identical to illnesses suffered by thousands of Gulf War I vets. Bodily fluids poisoned with uranium isotopes sicken spouses and visit upon offspring a genetic Armageddon.25
Who knows what a disabled and prematurely dying military population will mean to future stability and safety of USA? Yet Senator Chuck Hagel (R- Neb.) now demands that America provide more fodder for its atomic battlefields by reinstating the military draft so that "all of our citizens...bear some responsibility and pay some price" in order to "understand the intensity of the challenges we face."26
Despite disingenuous denials that biological harm will result from atomic warfare,27 the Pentagon knows full well the gruesome realities of uranium weaponry by virtue of its own voluminous studies spanning 60 years. Pentagon documents confirm that America's war establishment knowingly exposes its own troops to dangerous levels of radiation.28 The resulting illness of those now returning from the war zones is already making headlines.29
Because our military-industrial overlords brazenly poison the very grunts who make their war games possible, we must logically conclude there is virtually nothing they would not secretly and sadistically do to the rest of us. Military officials lie as perniciously about chemtrail operations30 as they do about effects of DU weaponry. If people were to consider the published science regarding chemtrails and DU, they would understand that we are all in mortal jeopardy.
Both the Pentagon's aerosol operations and its limited nuclear wars are deeply interconnected. We can trace the beginnings of Operation Cloverleaf right to the Strangelove brain of Dr. Edward Teller, father of the hydrogen bomb and proponent of nuking inhabited coast lines to rearrange them for economic projects.31 Before he died in 2003, Teller was director emeritus of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where plans for nuclear, biological and directed energy weapons are crafted. In 1997, Teller publicly outlined his proposal to use aircraft to scatter in the stratosphere millions of tons of electrically-conductive metallic materials, ostensibly to reduce global warming.32
Shortly after Teller's presentation, the public began seeing frenetic chemtrailing. In 2000, CBS News admitted that scientists were "looking at drastic solutions for global warming, including manipulating the atmosphere on a massive scale." CBS confirmed that the plan to load the air with tiny particles would "deflect enough sunlight to trigger global cooling."33
Teller estimated that commercial aircraft could be used to spew these particles at a cost of 33 cents a pound.34 This gives credence to a report by an airline manager, forced by a compulsory non-disclosure agreement to remain anonymous, that commercial aircraft have been co-opted to assist the military in consummating Project Cloverleaf.35 A 1991 Hughes aircraft patent confirms that sunscreen particulate materials can be run through jet engines.36 A science textbook now used in some public schools discusses the sunscreen project by showing a large orange-red jet with the caption, "Jet engines running on richer fuel would add particles to the atmosphere to create a sunscreen." The logo on the plane says "Particle Air."37 The implications of this crucial information should not be understated. A program to make America's millions of annual jet flights a source of specially designed particulate pollution is serious business.
Cloverleaf particles and polymers saturating the air we breathe are smaller than 10 microns (PM 10) and are invisible to the human eye. By comparison, a human hair is 60 to 100 microns in thickness. Scientists and the EPA report that because PM10 and sub-micron pollution particles bypass lung filters and enter the blood stream, they cause radical changes in the endocrine and nervous systems. 38 They can trigger high blood pressure and cause heart attack within two hours of inhalation.39 They cause the blood to become sticky, making it tougher for the heart to pump and increasing the risk of blood clots and vessel damage.40 Now researchers in Taiwan document "a significant increase" in the number of stroke victims when PM10 pollutant levels rise.41 The American Lung Association confirms that we are breathing more toxic air than ever.42 No wonder nationwide asthma rates have been soaring in recent years.43
Tiny synthetic filaments called polymers are part of the brew. In 1990, a NATO report detailed how high-flying aircraft can modify the atmosphere by spraying polymers to absorb electromagnetic radiation.44 U.S. patent number 6315213 describes how cross-linked aqueous polymers dispersed into a storm diminish rain.45
Polymer chemist Dr. R. Michael Castle has studied atmospheric polymers for years. He has found that some of them contain bioactive materials, which can cause "serious skin lesions and diseases when absorbed into the skin."46 He has identified microscopic polymers comprised of genetically-engineered fungal forms mutated with viruses. He says that trillions of fusarium (fungus)/virus mutated spores, which secrete a powerful mico-toxin, are part of the air we breathe.47 Allergies anyone?
We can safely bet that into our particle-enriched air, experimenters are also dumping nanoparticles, developed for a variety of military and industrial uses. These engineered carbon molecules, as small as one-thousandth the diameter of human hair, display bizarre chemical properties and are known to trigger organ damage.48 A recent study at Southern Methodist University found that fish exposed to one type of nanoparticle suffered severe brain damage after only 48 hours.49
The military's aerosol operations have been climate altering to the extreme. Air traffic is a huge source of greenhouse pollution. Increasing that traffic exponentially in order to scatter tons of heat-trapping metallic particulates and heat-liberating barium salts have undoubtedly led to accelerated global warming. Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, including carbon dioxide, have reached a record high this year.50 As carbon dioxide levels rise, oxygen levels decrease.
In 1996, Scientists for Global Responsibility compiled a report contending that dangerous geoengineering, as proposed by Teller and the Global Change Research Coordination Office, would be absolutely ineffective in mitigating global warming. The report noted that climate engineering research is funded by industry with a vested interest in continued high consumption of fossil fuels.51 The hair-brained scheme of particle engineering was contrived to ensure that industry polluters will never be forced to decrease their greenhouse gas emissions. But because warming and pollution trends have worsened drastically since the aerosol projects began, we must suspect that the warming mitigation program is a hoax and that chemtrailing is really intended, among other things, to create a series of "hobgoblins."
The establishment's modus operandi for maintaining a fierce and lucrative hold upon the collective American mind has been defined precisely by satirist H.L. Mencken (1880-1956) who wrote: "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed, and thus clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."
In The Report from Iron Mountain published in 1967, just as the Pentagon's lucrative Vietnam War was being revved into high gear, establishment braintrusters confirmed that perpetual war is absolutely vital for controlling and manipulating the masses. The document even suggested a number of options for creating fictitious enemies, noting that perpetual war induces populations to give blind allegiance to political authority.52
Since the 1930s, when the Eastern Establishment, including the Bush family, used its New York banks and oil companies to secretly fund Hitler's German Nazi party,53 our controllers have employed FEAR, the concept of ENEMY and WAR to keep us in bondage. Chemtrailing is a manifestation of the Fourth Reich, an era of corporate fascism ushered in by a powerful military juggernaut, which manufactures enemies and unleashes fake terror attacks to scare us into voiceless submission.
Both Saddam Hussein and the al Queda networks have long been nourished with U.S. government and corporate funding and groomed by U.S. military and corporate advisors to play useful roles as "enemies."54 Former German Technology Minister Andreas von Bulow recently confirmed on U.S. radio that hijacked planes were able to fly around the eastern U.S. on 9/11 unimpeded by military interdiction because those attacks were part of a carefully-orchestrated "covert operation" designed to coerce America into perpetual conflict with the Muslim world.55
Now, a "secret" Pentagon report has been conveniently leaked to the media. It contends that abrupt climate change is the most fearful hobgoblin yet.56 Authored by change agents with ties to the CIA and the Royal Dutch/Shell Group, the report contends that abrupt climate change will lead to a global catastrophe of monumental proportions, including nuclear war and natural disasters, as whole nations disappear beneath the encroaching sea and survivors fight for dwindling food, water and energy supplies.
Yet the Pentagon has been involved for decades in the drastic manipulation of weather, climate and atmospheric conditions. The U.S. used a chemical agent dubbed Olive Oil during Operation Popeye to induce heavy rains in Vietnam 40 years ago.57 The Air Force document titled "Weather As a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025" lists its weaponized agenda for creating abrupt climate change including: Storm creation and modification, fog and cloud creation, precipitation enhancement, precipitation denial, drought inducement and artificial creation of "space weather." This document also states that the military's radical weather modification agenda will "become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications."58
Weather weapons are now routinely used in war zones. A citizen reporting from Serbia noted that during NATO operations in the Balkans, black clouds suddenly materialized out of blue skies, hailstones were the size of eggs, and surreal thunder and lightening terrified the people. He reported that scientists found that the electromagnetic field over Serbia had been punctured, causing rain systems to circumvent the region.59 In addition to manufactured drought, scientists also predict that Serbia will suffer 10,000 cancer deaths from DU weaponry used there.60
According to University of Ottawa Professor Michael Chossudovsky, the military's High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), operating in Alaska as part of the Strategic Defense Initiative, is a powerful tool for weather and climate modification.61 Operated jointly by the U.S. Navy and Air Force, HAARP antennas bombard and heat the ionosphere, causing electromagnetic frequencies to bounce back to earth, penetrating everything living and dead.62
HAARP transmissions make holes in the ozone,63 creating yet another hobgoblin. HAARP inventor Bernard Eastlund described in his original patent how antenna energy can interact with plumes of atmospheric particles, used as a lens or focusing device, to modify weather.64 HAARP is capable of triggering floods, droughts and hurricanes, much to the chagrin of both the European Parliament and the Russian Duma.65
HAARP also generates sweeping pulses through the ULF/ELF range.66 In 2000, independent researchers monitored HAARP transmissions of 14 hertz. They found that when these signals were broadcast at high output levels, wind speeds topped 70 miles per hour. They watched as these same transmissions dispersed a huge weather front approaching the west coast from California to British Columbia. Although precipitation had been originally forecast, the front was seen shredding apart on satellite photos and rain did not materialize.67 The hobgoblin drought can be an enriching and empowering tool for certain corporate and governing entities.
HAARP is not only capable of destabilizing agricultural and ecological systems anywhere on the planet, but its effects can target select regions to affect human physical, mental and emotional responses during non-lethal warfare projects.68 HAARP frequencies beamed at specific targets can generate catastrophic earthquakes,69 exactly like the quake last December which killed thousands of people in Iran, a nemesis nation according to the Bush administration.
The Pentagon's warning about climate catastrophe is surely nothing more than a thinly-veiled attempt to prepare the masses for the bizarre atmospheric upheavals we can expect as the military continues to brutalize our planet and near space with its grotesque toys. And we ain't seen nothing yet. Dr. Eastlund and his ilk have developed plans for solar power satellites designed to modify the weather with electromagnetic beam output that dwarfs the present HAARP system.70 As abrupt climate change is increasingly orchestrated, we will surely need additional fascist agencies, an ever-growing military budget and more poison-particle projects that just happen to ensure population reduction as a side benefit.
Despite visual evidence that every aspect of our physical environment is being manipulated and damaged for war games, some Americans cannot accept that dangerous covert operations are being conducted by a government they still believe to be a virtuous defender of freedom. Their stumbling block is a numbing belief that their own officials would never perpetrate dangerous experimentation on humanity since "they have families too." History and the release of declassified government documents disprove such naiveté.
Although "they" had families too, the U.S. government and its defense contractors exposed citizens of the northwest U.S. to huge and deliberate releases of radioactive iodine 131 from the Hanford Nuclear Reservation where plutonium was produced for nuclear bombs.71 Those Cold War releases unleashed radiation illnesses upon thousands of downwinders, some of whom received up to 350 rads of radiation when a maximum safety dose is set at .025 rads annually.72 Between 1949 and 1952, radioactive pellets, dust and particles were tested on the hapless citizens of Utah and New Mexico.73
By 1963, 1,200 nuclear weapons tests conducted at the Nevada test site had exposed every person in the U.S. to deadly radioactive fallout, causing millions of fetal deaths, spontaneous abortions, stillbirths and birth defects.74 The U.S. government also conducted over 4,000 radiation experiments on individual human test subjects without their informed consent.75 The delayed effects of decades of radiation exposure from weapons testing are today demonstrated by a U.S. population plagued with epidemic cancer and heart disease, neurological disorders, low fertility, chronic fatigue, obesity (thyroid involvement), immune system dysfunction and learning disabilities. Approximately half of all pregnancies in the U.S. result in prenatal or postnatal death or an otherwise less than healthy baby.76 As military tankers spew white chemical plumes across America at a cost of $3,448 per hour per tanker,77 we are reminded of Dr. Leonard Cole's 1994 testimony before a Senate Committee regarding 45 years of open air testing during which military aircraft sprayed American cities with bacteria, fungus and carcinogenic chemicals.78 Between 1962-1973, the U.S. Navy conducted hundreds of bio-chem tests known as Operation SHAD (Shipboard Hazard and Defense). SHAD projects like Autumn Gold and Copper Head exposed 10,000 navy personnel to aircraft spray laden with biological and chemical warfare agents, including sarin nerve gas.79 The cocktails used in those genocidal "tests" are now linked to cancer, heart and lung problems suffered by surviving guinea pigs.
We are told that defense officials perpetrated these atrocities so that scientists could learn about how to "protect" Americans from attack. So why, in the late 80s, would our "protectors" fall all over themselves to supply Saddam Hussein's war machine with 90 shipments of chemical and biological weaponry, including sarin, anthrax, botulism, brucella and West Nile Virus?80
It will likely be years before Americans are told what is being tested upon them during our present chemtrail/space wars era. The Hanford downwinders did not learn until 1986 what had been unleashed upon them some 30 years earlier; SHAD victims filed suit in 2003 to learn the extent to which they were intentionally exposed to dangerous substances in the 60s.
To understand how our nation has arrived at this doomsday corruption, we must recall that immediately after WWII ended, the U.S. government initiated Operation Paperclip through which a large number of German Nazi scientists were imported to the United States. Once issued new identities, these death industry pros were employed in U.S. military laboratories to develop a dazzling array of secret weaponry projects.81 With congressional funding, the crowning achievement of this nexus was the creation of ghastly new bioweapons, including the AIDS virus82 and an incapacitating chronic fatigue agent engineered from mycoplasma and brucella.83
The military is empowered to continue lethal experimentation by devious wording of Section 1520a Chapter 32 of U.S. Code Title 50. The law states that the Secretary of Defense may NOT conduct any chemical or biological test or experiment on civilian populations, unless such tests are for medical, therapeutic, pharmaceutical, agricultural, industrial purposes or for research in general or for protection against weapons or for law enforcement purposes, including riot control. So DOD may not use us for guinea pigs, unless it is for any "good" reason under the sun! The law states that human subjects must give informed consent. But a nasty loophole in Section 1515 of Chapter 32 allows informed consent to be suspended by executive order during a period of national emergency, a situation under which this nation perpetually labors by deliberate hobgoblin design.
Few American test rats realize that the Pentagon's boys in Congress have now:
* appropriated millions of dollars for the manufacture and testing of new "mini nukes" and bunker buster bombs.84
* authorized the DOE to resume nuclear testing in Nevada.85
* exempted DOD and DOE from landmark environmental laws in the development of these new weapons.86
America's 70,000 nuclear weapons manufactured since 1945 are not sufficient! As DOE gears up to develop and test fourth-generation nukes, numerous reports continue to surface about the agency's sordid corruption and mismanagement. DOE's habitual cover-up of site contamination and its devious efforts to downplay serious illnesses suffered by many of its nuclear workers are among recent scandals.87
When new "low yield" nuclear weapons (defined as being smaller than 5 kilotons) are tested in Nevada, downwinders might like to know that a mini .5 kiloton nuclear warhead would have to burrow 150 feet to eliminate atmospheric fallout. No weapon yet developed can penetrate more than 40 feet into the earth. A tested nuclear warhead that burrows to only 40 feet will throw a million cubic feet of radioactive debris into the atmosphere.88
The Pentagon's new nuke era is in the capable hands of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who has so ably presided over the pre-emptive nuclear incineration of Middle Eastern Muslims. Rumsfeld has never adequately explained why his Department was unable to defend the Pentagon building despite a full hour's notice that hijacked planes were in the air. Should Rumsfeld be replaced due to the Pentagon's Iraqi torture scandal, we are assured that his Bush-appointed successor will share his have-nuke-will-travel ideology.
Working closely with Rumsfeld is a coven of pro-nukers, including his advisor Keith Payne, a vocal advocate of pre-emptive nuclear war. Payne has written that an "intelligent" nuclear offensive launched by the U.S. would result in only 20 million U.S. casualties, "a level compatible with national survival and recovery."89
Now that we have tied together the historical and political realities for which we mindlessly wave our flags, we still hope that sufficient numbers of American lab rats will miraculously awaken from their collective stupor and take stock of our appalling situation. After all, rodents have a notoriously short life span and are always killed when no longer useful to those conducting research. The irony of this horror story is that we rats are being plundered to finance our own demise. Our national debt of 7.2 trillion grows by $1.8 billion a day.90 The Pentagon cannot account for $2.3 trillion of its shadowy transactions.91 The radioactive operations in Iraq are costing $3.7 billion a month, those in Afghanistan $900 million a month.92 No one knows how many $billions are being flushed into Operation Cloverleaf and other hobgoblin projects. The U.S. spends $11,000 per second on weapons, according to calculations of celebrated author William Thomas.93
So, while we await the great awakening, have a wonderful, barium-dried summer under a synthetic tarpaulin of aluminum-white, particle-laden, electrically-charged aviation scum that passes for sky. Endure well your respiratory and ocular difficulties while staring at huge oily sun rings and smeary sundogs, the patent signature of chemical assault. Don't forget to salute and click your heels when you see tanker formations patriotically saturating the atmosphere with such a dense, micro-particulate brew that they cast black shadows alongside or ahead of themselves.
As you witness the noxious drama in the skies, remember, it's all just part of the "kill chain."

The government reps then stated that if the general public knew that the aircraft they were flying on were releasing chemicals into the air, environmentalist groups would raise hell and demand the spraying stop."
