Scientists have found a new bacteria, Borrelia mayonii, that triggers Lyme disease in humans, according to CDC. Until now, Borrelia burgdorferi was the only species believed to cause Lyme disease in North America.

The bacteria is called Borrelia mayonii, and was found by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with the Mayo Clinic and health officials from Minnesota, Wisconsin, and North Dakota, the official statement said.

Researchers from Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, first suspected the chance a new strand of bacteria might exist after they had carried out lab tests on 9,000 people with Lyme disease, and six results were unusual, according to the study published in Lancet Infectious Diseases.

Previously, only one bacterium was known to trigger the disease in North America: B. Burgdorferi. The newly-discovered strand causes similar symptoms, but with several differences.

Both bacteria cause fever, headache, rash, and neck pain in the early stages of infection (days after exposure) and arthritis in later stages of infection (weeks after exposure).

Borrelia mayonii, however, adds nausea and vomiting to the picture, as well as triggers diffuse rashes (as compared with a single rash caused by Borrelia burgdorferi, the so-called bull’s eye).

Plus, the findings suggest that Borrelia mayonii triggers higher concentration of bacteria in the blood, and it has only been found in the US upper Midwest.

“This discovery adds another important piece of information to the complex picture of tickborne diseases in the United States,”Dr. Jeannine Petersen, microbiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in the press release.

There are some 300,000 cases of Lyme disease in the US yearly, CDC stated. It is transmitted via bites by the blacklegged ‘deer’ tick, and is rarely fatal: normally, the patients get well after a course of oral antibiotics.

The patients infected with the new bacteria could use the same antibiotics as those with Borrelia burgdorferi.

However, it’s too early to tell if the newly-discovered bacterium is more or less dangerous than the earlier-known one, researchers said.

“We have fairly limited information in that our study described six patients. We need more patients in order to capture the full spectrum of those who might have less severe symptoms and those who might have more severe ones,” Petersen told Reuters.

Most people have strong opinions on vaccines, and even stronger opinions about whether or not vaccines are linked to autism.

But this film isn’t about vaccines. And it isn’t about autism. It’s about cover-up and corruption in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a government agency, funded by your taxes, and entrusted with your health.

Journalist Ben Swann has poured over the thousands of pages of documents relating to a 2004 CDC study on autism and vaccines. The documents were originally obtained by Dr. William Thompson, a CDC scientist—and whistleblower—who hired an attorney to force the CDC to hand the documents over to Congress. In December 2015, Swann was the first journalist to obtain the documents from Congressman Bill Posey.

Swann examines Thompson’s claims and documents, with the assistance of doctors, journalists, authors and former CDC specialists. Watch the documentary to hear from the experts on whether or not the CDC manipulated scientific findings and deceived the public.

Biowarfare? Genetically Modified Mosquitos Spreading The Zika Virus

The Zika virus is related to dengue fever, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis and West Nile viruses.

So far, drugs aren’t effective against it. A vaccine if developed will do more harm than good. Most infected individuals suffer mild illness, called Zika disease.

Potentially deadly Guillain-Barre syndrome at times occurs. Fetuses are at risk for microcephaly, an abnormally small head in relation to the rest of the body and underdeveloped brain, permanent damage.

Zika has been around for decades, occasional outbreaks occurring in Africa and Asia – currently in Central and South America, Brazil its epicenter.

It’s being spread by genetically engineered mosquitos. Is it the latest example of US biowarfare? America’s sordid history suggests it.

In 1931, Dr. Cornelius Rhoads infected human subjects with cancer cells – under the auspices of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Investigations. He later conducted radiation exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patients.

In 1932, the Tuskegee Syphilis Study infected 200 unwitting Black men, using them as human guinea pigs, denying them treatment, following the progression of their disease, deliberately letting them suffer and die.

In 1940, 400 Chicago prisoners were infected with malaria to study the effects of new and experimental drugs.

At least since the 1940s, America had an active biological warfare program, using controversial methods to test bioweapons.

VA hospital patients have been used as human guinea pigs for medical experiments. Biological agents were released in US cities (including New York and San Francisco) to test the effects of germ warfare.

America’s deplorable history at home and abroad includes numerous other examples. Washington uses biological, chemical, radiological and other banned weapons in all its wars.

Are US-unleashed genetically modified mosquitos being used to wage biological warfare in Central and South America?

The Zika virus outbreak is linked to GM mosquitos released in field trials funded by Bill Gates.

The corporate-controlled World Health Organization (WHO) said Zika “is now spreading explosively” in the Americas, hyping an estimated three to four million people at risk over the next year.

Central and South American nations urged women to avoid pregnancy for at least two years. Is Zika being used as an attempted population control scheme?

GM mosquitos allegedly released to keep dengue fever, yellow fever, chikungunga (a crippling mosquito-borne virus) and zika from spreading are facilitating its outbreaks in numerous Central and South American countries – notably Brazil and Colombia.

The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) warned of potential small Zika outbreaks in southern Florida and Texas.

UK biotech company Oxford Insect Technologies developed GM mosquitos with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation funding – a profit-making enterprise, masquerading as a charitable one.

One critic called its operations “vulture philanthropy,” investing in companies causing health problems they claim to be combatting.

Not coincidentally, Zika’s outbreak occurred where GM mosquitos were released last year in Brazil, now affecting about 20 Central and South American countries.

Maybe areas in southern US states will follow. What’s happening has the earmarks of state-sponsored biowarfare.

First Sexually-Transmitted Case Of Zika Virus Reported In Texas

Health officials in Dallas County, Texas have confirmed a case of the Zika virus being transmitted sexually. The patient had sexual contact with a person who recently returned from a country where widespread Zika infections have been reported.

Officials did not release the name, age or sex of the patient. Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCCHS) said that it received confirmation of the infection from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Infection (CDC). However, the CDC said that it did not investigate how the transmission occurred, according to Reuters.

“Now that we know Zika virus can be transmitted through sex, this increases our awareness campaign in educating the public about protecting themselves and others,” said DCHHS director Zachary Thompson. “Next to abstinence, condoms are the best prevention method against any sexually-transmitted infections.”

Symptoms of the virus include rash, rash, joint pain and red eyes. Usually these symptoms are mild and only last several days. However, pregnant women who contact Zika are at risk of bearing children with underdeveloped brains and heads.

There is currently no cure or vaccine for the disease.

Zika is most commonly spread by after being bitten by a virus-carrying mosquito, but doctors are only now discovering that it can be spread from person to person through sexual contact. Reuters reports that there has been only one case in medical literature of the disease being transmitted sexually.

There have been six confirmed travel-related cases of Zika in Texas, all among residents of Harris County, where Houston is located, the Department of State Health Services said.

There have been over 40 cases of the Zika virus across 12 US states and the District of Columbia. Until now, all cases involved travelers returning to the country, with no reports of the virus being transmitted locally.

Is The Zika Virus A Smokescreen For Vaccine Induced Birth Defects?

(The Real Agenda) In the digital age of fast-travelling information, news simply flies. It is almost impossible to keep up with every little detail at once, which is why news needs constant updates to add unknown details which provide better perspective and context. These two characteristics are what ultimately provide readers a change to understand reality.

For the past six months, we have followed as many developments as possible about the scary Zika virus, which health authorities have identified as the culprit of a growing number of cases of microcephaly in South and Central America. In the last few weeks, people allegedly infected with Zika have appeared elsewhere.

As we reported yesterday, Brazil is one of the countries with the largest number of unborn and born children with smaller than normal heads, which causes them to die early or to develop physical problems later in life. After our reporting yesterday, two important details have come to our attention which we found necessary to share with readers.

The first new detail is that, as suspected, Zika virus was ‘collected’ by Rockefeller-funded scientists some 70 years ago. Those scientists conducted laboratory experiments with the virus, including injecting animals with it. In 1947, disease hunters from the Rockefeller Foundation were in Uganda, studying yellow fever, when they found Zika.

On April 18, 1947, one of the Asian Rhesus monkeys took ill with a previously unknown virus, which the researchers dubbed Zika. In a lab in Entebbe, the Rockefeller scientists injected the new virus into mice, which then developed the feverish illness, thereby proving the virus they had discovered was the cause of the disease.

It is not known whether the Rockefeller-backed researchers weaponized the virus or not, but it is well-known that the Rockefeller Foundation, the Ford Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are pioneers in conducting experiments with pathogens, viruses, bacteria, vaccines and, lately, genetically engineered organisms.

Both the Rockefeller and Ford foundations are behind what we know as modern medicine. They took over research organizations, university medical programs and private enterprises and for a long time have dictated what is taught and what is omitted in medical schools in the United States and many other places around the world.

The second detail that has come to our attention is perhaps the most important of the two. While most of the world follows the news about mosquitoes being responsible for infecting women and children with the Zika virus, there is one fact that has been left out.

Right around the same time when Zika seemed to enter the news cycle over six months ago, governments in Latin America, including Brazil, pushed strongly through nation-wide propaganda campaigns to request that all pregnant mothers injected a dose of the new Tetanus, Diptheria and Pertussis (TDaP) vaccine.

In the same way that the release of GM mosquitoes coincided with the appearance of thousands of cases of microcephaly in Latin America, so did the start of a massive vaccination campaign of pregnant women. This new development has been brought to light by journalist Jim Stone. “This shrunken brain problem directly coincides with the introduction of a new TDaP vaccine in Brazil, which was announced in December 2014 and went into use in 2015,” relates Stone.

According to him, the vaccine was adopted in a number of countries worldwide, which would explain the rapid spread of microcephaly cases not only in Latin America, but also in North America and Europe. This argument does not necessarily leave out the possibility that GM mosquitoes were released in all hot spots and that those mosquitoes could have began the transmission of a weaponized version of Zika virus, which is why we are keeping our eyes and ears open to more developments.

What has not changed since our last is both the culprits and the intention of the latest boogieman in the form of a serious disease whose aim seems to be to sicken or kill unborn babies.

Stone argues that the flow of mainstream media reports seems to have been planed ahead of time, as in predicting that the Zika virus would appear as the culprit of the microcephaly cases. “Additionally, and even more important is that some of the news releases related to this “disease” were originally dated weeks into the future, which means that someone is doing it and the media release was pre-planned,” says Stone.

“Something else is causing the brain destroyed babies, it is not any “zika disease”, something else is causing it and I guess they figured “zika” sounded spooky enough to blame it all on while they proceed to blow baby brains out with pre-natal pregnancy vaccinations. In many Latin American countries, women are strongly encouraged to get the Tdap vaccine no more than 22 weeks into a pregnancy,” concludes Stone in his report.

If Mr. Stone’s reporting turns out to be confirmed, and it will, with time, it would not be the first case of a psy-op being used to launch a grand propaganda campaign to distract the population while the real culprit of a disease is right in front of all, hiding in plane sight.

Is The Zika Virus A Genetically Engineered Disease?

(The Real Agenda) In 1947, disease hunters from the Rockefeller Foundation were in Uganda, studying yellow fever using rhesus macaque monkeys. The animals were placed in cages that were perched in trees in the Zika Forest (meaning “overgrown” in the Luganda language). On April 18, 1947, one of the Asian Rhesus monkeys took ill with a previously unknown virus, which the researchers dubbed Zika. In a lab in Entebbe, the Rockefeller scientists injected the new virus into mice, which then developed the feverish illness, thereby proving the virus they had discovered was the cause of the disease. The first human case of Zika fever was identified in Nigeria in 1954. 

How would globalists who favor mass depopulation go about decimating a country’s fertility rate? Normally they do it through two methods. One of them is loud, bloody and generally unwanted, although often used. That method is war.

One can see the application of this technique in the Middle East, Africa and Asia, where western organizations and governments spend billions of dollars a year to promote and maintain the destabilization of nations by financing opposition groups that carry out civil wars.

The second method is stealthy, silent, and consequently more effective in achieving its goal. This second method is spreading bio-weapons over a determined population to affect their reproductive health.

War as method of depopulation is very effective, but it is not very popular. The sounds of war can be heard loudly, way before the first bomb is dropped. People usually have some time to prepare or run away.

In the case of a bio-weapon it is quite the contrary. There is usually no escape, unless you are in the know. The malignant beauty of a bio-weapon is that it achieves its goal of reducing fertility quietly and over a long period of time.

A bio-weapon may not be the choice in many occasions because it takes longer to achieve its end goal. In this respect, war is more effective, because it destroys property and human lives instantly.

The release of bio-weapons in the form of experimental trials with viruses, bacteria and other pathogens is not new, but it continues to be used by private entities funded by philanthropic organizations and government agencies.

Experiments are conducted in highly secured labs which follow standard protocols, but scientists who cozy up to their funding partners find it difficult not to deploy a bio-weapon outside their labs in an attempt to make it perfect. Of course, this is not spoken of publicly. The excuse is always ‘research’, ‘general well-being’ and other things of the sort.

Recently, philanthropists from all origins have advocated strongly for carrying out depopulation campaigns in order to ‘save the planet’ from humanity. The same people are also involved in efforts to reduce carbon emissions by banning certain cars from circulating or imposing high taxes on what they publicly allege are the greatest environmental offenders. Privately, though, these philanthropists believe that the greatest offenders are humans, which is why they have been working for decades to eradicate a big segment of the world’s population. These same people are behind genetically engineered products, such as food, animals and insects.

As we have widely reported, independently conducted experiments show that GMOs are responsible for serious health complications which are irreversible by the second or third generation. This means that if a person is chemically castrated, for example, his or her offspring or those of their children may be born infertile.

Due to the growing body of evidence about the dangers of GMOs, those who seek to drastically reduce the world’s population have already moved to the next phase of their plan: creating genetically engineered diseases whose cure is not available yet; at least not for the wide majority of the population.

Their modus operandi includes deploying those diseases via vectors such as mosquitoes, viruses and bacteria. During one of his speeches, Bill Gates, who has stakes in Monsanto and experiments with GM mosquitos, spoke of his idea to turn these insects into vectors to help improve vaccination rates.

The mosquito would allegedly “carry the vaccine” which would be injected into people via the traditional mosquito bite. Sounds like science fiction? Well, this technology is already being worked on.

The world has witnessed the appearance of diseases that are far from being naturally occurring or that have naturally mutated from older strains of viruses, for example. The H1N1 scare is one of those examples. The Ebola outbreak is another case of a laboratory made disease that was later released or let out of a lab to better understand how the affected population would react to it. And now, some countries seem to be facing another open-air experiment: The Zika Virus.

Generally speaking, the Zika virus is explained as a mild form of dengue. Its victims suffer from the same symptoms than a patient who contracts a flu, which is what dengue used to be confused with before being studied in depth.

Today, dengue is understood as a completely different disease and Zika is in the process of going through the same process. The Zika virus has been connected to the Tiger mosquito, which is said to be the transmitter. The question is, where and how do mosquitoes acquire the virus?

Zika has gone from appearing in a few Brazilian states and Caribbean islands to spreading fast in the South American country, the United States and even Europe in just a couple of months. Right now, 22 different countries have reported cases of Zika.

In Brazil, which seems to be one of the origins of the disease, the government has deployed the army in some states in an attempt to help stop the contagion. An immediate question people ask is, why didn’t the governments in Brazil and elsewhere prevent the appearance of Zika? Why did the virus spread so widely before governments reacted to it? But perhaps a more important question is, how did Zika appear on the face of the Earth?

The Zika virus can affect anyone who is bitten by a transmitting mosquito, but it is pregnant women and their unborn children who are most affected by the disease. This is surely not a coincidence if we take into account the ongoing depopulation campaign.

The consequences for fetuses are devastating, as children are born, if they make it, with severe brain damage. Health authorities have identified Zika as the cause of microcephaly, a condition that causes a child to “be born with a smaller-than-normal sized head which results in impaired brain development.”

It turns out that previous to the Zika virus appearing in Brazil, an experiment was conducted by a group of Brazilian and foreign entities. Such experiment consisted in releasing genetically engineered mosquitoes which would allegedly reduce native mosquitoes’ ability to transmit dengue fever.

The GE mosquitoes were released in the state of Bahia, in the Northeast of Brazil. That state along with Recife, a neighbor state, became ground zero for the outbreak of Zika in the country. Along with Brazil, entities like a company known as Oxitec, also conducted similar experiments in the Cayman Islands, where another outbreak of Zika was detected.

The experiment carried out with Oxitec mosquitoes was supported by the University of Sao Paulo (USP). According to Oxitec, the desired outcome of its experiment was to measure how effective their GM mosquito proved to be in eliminating Aedes aegypti, the mosquito that transmits dengue fever. Apparently, the experiment was a success and the GM mosquito eliminated between 90 and 95 percent of the adult population of Aedes aegypti.

The experiment by Oxitec and USP was also aided by Moscamed, a company that specializes in “environmentally friendly pest control”. At least 1,800 people were exposed to the GM mosquitoes in the city of Itaberaba, in the state of Bahia. Since the experiment started, Brazil alone has reported 3,893 cases of microcephaly, while countries with fewer cases are warning women not to travel to any of the 22 nations where Zika has become a national health threat for pregnant women and their fetuses.

The suspicion that the GM mosquitoes are responsible for the spread of Zika has not stopped the World Health Organization (WHO) from recommending that more experiments like the one conducted in Brazil and the Caribbean be replicated in other countries. “According to published mathematical models reviewed and recommended by the World Health Organization working group on dengue, it would also reduce the number of biting mosquitoes below the disease transmission threshold. The next step is to scale up to even larger studies and run mosquito control projects on an operational basis,” reports Genetic Literacy Project.

The WHO’s plan to carry out more open-air experiments with GM mosquitoes is also supported by Brazilian health and academic authorities. “This invasive mosquito and the diseases it carries is a real challenge,” said Professor Margareth Capurro of São Paulo University.

Aedes aegypti is developing resistance to insecticides, and even when we remove breeding sites they continue to reproduce and transmit diseases because they live in areas that are difficult to treat. This is why we need new tools. We knew that the Oxitec mosquito was a promising tool, so we wanted to independently evaluate its effectiveness here in Brazil.”

As of right now, there isn’t an effective treatment against Zika and it is estimated that it will take between three and four years for some kind of treatment to be developed. Potential treatments undoubtedly include vaccines, which are now being worked on by the same people who are behind the push to use mosquitoes as delivery tools for ‘pest control’.

There seems to be a neatly closing circle behind every single health scare that we have seen in the last decade. Prominent people express their desire to force mass depopulation in order to ‘save us from ourselves’, then, all of a sudden, plagues such as H1N1, Ebola, Chikungunya, and Zika vírus appear from nowhere just right after an open-air experiment is conducted among vulnerable populations, which by the way, were not warned about it. Mass disease breaks out and the solution is always a new vaccine, which will be produced by the same people who advocate depopulation, reduction in carbon emissions, limits to standards of living and so on.

As of today, Brazilian health authorities expect to have some 4 million cases of Zika virus by the end of 2016.

Is Zika Virus The Next Tool For Forced Sterilization, Vaccination And Depopulation? (VIDEO)

zika

There is a new pathogen getting lots of attention from the mass media and the rest of the control system, and those awakened to the globalist plans may want to pay very close attention. It isn’t quite the Ebola-style scare, but it brings with it a much more focused and sinister agenda, and it’s already underway in 2016. It’s called the Zika virus scare.

In perfect timing with the current attempted rise of the new world order we’ve been witnessing over the past several months, the Zika virus scare agenda is focused on fulfilling the global elite’s depopulation agenda as we’ll see in a minute. But first let’s consider some of the history of the depopulation agenda itself.

The global elite have been clear about their goals of depopulation. Depopulation is deeply embedded into all the global plans of the new world order. It’s all part of the Malthusian belief or theory that the earth only has limited resources and therefore it is up to humanity (or it’s ruling elite) to limit its growth. The ruling elite have been selling this ideology for decades.

In 1958, author of ‘Brave New World’ Aldous Huxley appeared on National TV interviewing with Mike Wallace about his gloomy view of humanity. In his interview he admits at the time that humanity is being manipulated and destroyed by many forces. Huxley almost sounds like a prophet or a wise messenger for humanity with his unique smart sounding slow speaking technique. But it doesn’t take a wizard to listen in to the first 3 minutes to see that Huxley’s TV appearance ultimately is about selling the Malthusian dogma of scarcity and the need for depopulation as a solution. Huxley cleverly ties “less freedom” with “overpopulation” due to scarcity of resources thus painting “depopulation” with the same virtuous brush you would paint things like “freedom”, “liberty” or “justice” with.

Depopulation is also clearly outlined in the Georgia Guidestones, a monument (by the way) whose history is fully protected by the establishment media and Wikipedia. In case you didn’t know, the identity of the person who actually paid for the monument to this day is concealed. Wikipedia states:

In June 1979, an unknown person or persons under the pseudonym R. C. Christian hired Elberton Granite Finishing Company to build the structure.

Wikipedia also states:

The structure is sometimes referred to as an “American Stonehenge”

So let’s get this straight. It’s an American “Stonehenge” of historic proportion, it was built in modern times, yet mysteriously no one knows who paid for it?? Let that sink in for a minute.

I bring up the Georgia Guidestones because not only is it a listing of ten commandment for the new world order, but the first two commandments have clear implications of the goals of depopulation. The first two commandments in the stones state:

1- Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.

2- Guide reproduction wisely— improving fitness and diversity.

Clearly the Luciferian elites who paid for these stones believe the Malthusian theory of population, and they feel population needs to be controlled. The second commandment demonstrates that controlling population is clearly something they feel needs to be done by controlling fertility and reproduction. Despite this outrage, there isn’t any criticism of this idea in Wikipedia or any establishment platform. Instead these ideas are seemingly accepted.

There is no greater control of humanity than taking control of someone’s body and their reproductive rights and with the globalists going for it all in 2016 no one should be surprised that an effect that wasn’t traditionally there before is being attached to a virus that has been around potentially hundreds if not thousands of years.

Enter the coming Zika virus scare of 2016. The virus was first described in 1952 as a virus that causes mild symptoms that pose no real threat to humanity and that has been the story… until now that is. The establishment medical authorities are now saying that Zika virus is directly responsible for over 3000 cases of in utero (in the womb) cases of microcephaly in Brazil alone. Microcephaly is when a newborn is born with a small sized head and it is often associated with other brain abnormalities.

This is where the story gets a little stranger. And this is where independent researchers are beginning to ask questions that could potentially expose the entire Zika virus scare as a nefarious staged agenda to stop or even force women to become sterilized in the name of stopping this “epidemic”.

Questions researchers are asking are questions like- why is the virus now being linked to microcephaly when it never was before? And, why is this explosion of microcephaly coinciding with regions of the earth (Brazil, Mexico) that have a high incidence of a disease known as phenylketonuria, which is a genetic disease where the patient has a missing enzyme that doesn’t allow them to break down an amino acid called phenylalanine. This is significant because phenylketonuria is well known to cause microcephaly not Zika virus. This is significant if not disturbing because we are being told that Brazilian medical authorities are claiming the link between the virus and microcephaly without any real scientific and medical evidence to rule out other much more common causes of microcephaly.

We should be asking questions like what if the microcephaly is being caused by something other than the Zika virus which has always been a mild virus? And, how can a virus change its infective behavior suddenly without any other cause to explain the change? And, what if the vaccines the pregnant women are being given are chemically causing the microcephaly? How about, where is the direct evidence claimed by medical authorities that the virus is the cause?

The fact is that viruses generally don’t suddenly cause things they never caused before. And more than ever we should be vigilant and knowledgeable about these things because whether you are ready or not, the mainstream media hype and scare has already begun. The latest CNN psyop Zika virus commercial attempts to link microcephaly to Zika virus without any actual facts or science. Strikingly, the “solution” is presented as “delay getting pregnant”! And according to the World Health Organization (WHO) the Zika virus (like ISIS) is coming to your town soon, so you better be ready.

With the Olympics planned in Brazil this year, we should at least be paying attention to see how the establishment tries to spin this in terms of a global pandemic that must be dealt with by forced sterilization, force vaccination or both. Either way it will likely be something out of the Aldous Huxley or Bill Gates new world order playbook to promote depopulation.

If nothing else, it’s about time we stop thinking that these global crises that all fit in perfectly with the new world order plans are by coincidence. And it’s time to take notice of how all the huge crises that are presented by the mass media, all seem to fit into the new world order plans in a very neat and increasingly perfect way. In light of the overall picture, we would be foolish to ignore these patterns.

Population 2.0: Poor And Unhealthy Into The 21st Century

Over 40 million Children Reach Extreme Levels of Obesity.

(The Real Agenda) Childhood obesity is not just a problem of rich countries. In fact, it is much less so in wealthy nations. According to the World Health Organization, of the 42 million children under five who are overweight in the world, 35 million, or 83%, are part of middle and low income families.

“It’s an explosive nightmare,” says the World Health Organization (WHO), which has advanced data from the Commission to End Childhood Obesity; a body that was established two years ago.

Apart from the figures, the WHO is concerned about childhood development. For example, in Africa, the number of obese and overweight children under five years of age has nearly doubled since 1990, according to this study.

Obesity problems go beyond the scale and into degenerative diseases that are the result of being overweight, obese and morbidly obese. The consequences of these diseases are now much more prevalent in so-called developed countries, where the crisis is not one of undernutrition due to lack of food, but of malnutrition due to the consumption of fast food.

In poor countries, malnutrition is not the only problem. There are more cases of diseases such as dengue, cholera, tuberculosis and AIDS, to name but a few. It is also important to remember that the third world also suffers from high incidence of cancers, cardiovascular diseases and traffic accidents, not to mention other causes of death that were once characteristic of rich countries.

The report, whose data are not yet completed, has drawn a first conclusion: “It is not the child’s fault,” said Monday at a press conference the co-chair of the commission, Peter Gluckman.

According to the data from the WHO, in 2014, 48% of all obese and overweight children lived in Asia, and 25% in Africa. “The region where the problem is so alarming and where t is fast growing is Asia,” warned Gluckman.

Among the factors behind the increase in childhood obesity figures include biological factors, the environment and, of course, food intake. The report also includes other issues such as inadequate access to health services, decreased physical activity in schools and the deregulation of fattening foods. Any solution to the exploding obesity epidemic requires a comprehensive and coordinated response, the report indicates.

Gluckman has explained that it has been detected that Asian children have a specific metabolism that makes them retain fat in the abdominal part of the body, the area surrounding vital organs, exactly where it is most harmful to health.

“We are studying why, but it is a very dangerous development because that fat is installed long before the external and the child shows signs of overweight and obesity on the outside,” he explained.

With regard to Latin America, it is estimated that the prevalence of overweight children in the region stands at 8% in children under five.

Gluckman has pointed out that Latin American leaders are well aware of the problem and are seriously responding, and noted that many countries are directing their policies in the right direction.

“Keep in mind that obesity impacts the quality of life of children, affecting their physical, psychological state, their ability to study, to relate, and will put many barriers in life, so we must urgently deal with this matter,” said Sania Sishtar, the co-chair of the commission.

In addition, Sishtar has warned that childhood obesity is a major factor in the possibility of developing obesity during adulthood and, consequently, major noncommunicable diseases, including cardiovascular disease.

In this situation, the study’s authors expect the WHO Executive Board, meeting this week in Geneva at its 138 edition, to note and suggest to the World Health Assembly to adopt a resolution urging countries to implement measures to fight obesity.

Among them, the report recommends to educate children, parents, teachers and leaders about the importance of eating healthy food and reducing the intake of sugars and fats. It is also necessary to promote physical activity and reduce sedentarism.

In extreme cases of adult obesity in women, the report suggests that they enter into programs that help prevent diabetes for them and their future children, since many cases of obesity may be related to what happened during the months of pregnancy.

New “Tech Tattoos” Will Be Tied To Medical And Banking Information

Tech-Tats-title-1024x576

By: Nicholas West, Activist Post |

Apparently a tech company called Chaotic Moon is looking to take advantage of the 20% of humans who already have a proclivity toward tattoos. For the rest? An appeal to safety and security, of course, and an assurance that a future offering could be a “Band-Aid-like package.”

Chaotic Moon’s dual-purpose tattoo is comprised of electro conductive ink embedded with sensors and microchips. Here is the reasoning why this product is so desirable according to one of the developers, Eric Schneider, who mentions the banking aspect to CBSNewYork:

“We carry wallets around and they are so vulnerable (more vulnerable than millions of people getting hacked at once? – N.W.). With the tech tattoo you can carry all your information on your skin and when you want your credit card information or your ID, you can pull that up automatically through the system,” he said.

And the medical:

“Rather than going to the doctor once a year for your physical, this tech tattoo can be something you put on your body once a year and it monitors everything that they would do in a physical and it sends that to your doctor, and if there’s an issue they can call you,” Schneider said. “So the tech tattoos can really tie in everything into one package. It can look at early signs of fever, your vital signs, heart rate, everything it needs to look at to notify you that you’re getting sick or your child is getting sick.”

We already have seen an uptick in new biometric security measures being rolled out for policing, travel and banking. Much of these measures – as well as what is being planned by Chaotic Moon – are tied to a smartphone, which we have learned ad nauseum is anything but secure.

At the heart of developments like this is the concept of predictive modeling and, more specifically, the move toward predictive healthcare – either through chip implants or through smartphone/app connections that can monitor vital signs as well as mental health and transfer warnings to medical professionals.  The tech tattoo, according to Chaotic Moon, is “total integration.”

For those who may doubt that this will ever become more than a novelty for tech-heads, Jon Rappoport has documented that Obamacare offers the framework to bring predictive medicine into a wider reality that very well could become a requirement.

Managed Care has published an article, “More Data in Health Care Will Enable Predictive Modeling Advances.”

Here are two key quotes:

“Predictive modeling (PM) has grown to be a linchpin of care management. Health plans, integrated delivery systems, and other health care organizations (HCOs) increasingly channel their patients to interventions based in part on what they deduce from predictive models that have traditionally been run against databases of administrative claims. In this arena, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) [Obamacare] is likely to exert a profound effect.”

“…a growing number of health care experts, including the Care Continuum Alliance, see predictive modeling as an opportunity to prevent [disease] complications, control [hospital] readmissions, generate more precise diagnoses and treatments, predict risk, and control costs for a more diverse array of population segments than previously attempted.”

It becomes an irresistible justification to cut costs and track enrollees in the new authoritarian healthcare system that is truly (micro)managed.

Our tech-driven world has also trained the mass majority of us to elect convenience while ignoring the potential privacy risks. In fact, we ignore the privacy risks which are already documented. Each day brings a wave of stories about identity theft, hacks of software and hardware (like vehicles), government intrusion upon our personal data and security breaches of the promised unbreakable type.

We’ve also been sold the concept that tracking=security in our personal lives, with features like chip implants for pets and a range of tracking apps to ensure you never lose your children, as well as a range of wearables for entertainment and fitness tracking.

However, what at first seems sensible is moving down the slipperiest of slopes into areas most couldn’t have imagined. This is no longer the personal choice about how to apply tech to one’s own body or family, but is now becoming a system where government agencies take the role of parent, and we-the-people become children. Most troubling of all is that it likely will be mandated unless there is mass opposition.

New Gov’t Task Force Calls For Screening Every Adult, Pregnant Women For Depression

mind control

By: Brandon Turbeville, Activist Post |

A new recommendation has been released by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, a government advisory group that is now recommending all adults be routinely screened for depression as part of their healthcare.

The first part of the recommendation suggests that all adults be screened, but singles out pregnant women and new mothers as a target population. The second part of the recommendation mentions the need to ensure that systems are in place that will allow for the proper diagnosis and treatment of people who are singled out through this screening. The guidelines, which were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, did not specify how often adults should be screened.

In regards to the implementation of these guidelines, the Task Force states:

The USPSTF recommends that screening be implemented with adequate systems in place. “Adequate systems in place” refers to having systems and clinical staff to ensure that patients are screened and, if they screen positive, are appropriately diagnosed and treated with evidence-based care or referred to a setting that can provide the necessary care. These essential functions can be provided through a wide range of different arrangements of clinician types and settings. In the available evidence, the lowest effective level of support consisted of a designated nurse who advised resident physicians of positive screening results and provided a protocol that facilitated referral to evidence-based behavioral treatment.1 At the highest level, support included screening; staff and clinician training (1- or 2-day workshops); clinician manuals; monthly training lectures; academic detailing; materials for clinicians, staff, and patients; an initial visit with a nurse specialist for assessment, education, and discussion of patient preferences and goals; a visit with a trained nurse specialist for follow-up assessment and ongoing support for medication adherence; a visit with a trained therapist for CBT; and a reduced copayment for patients referred for psychotherapy.2, 3

Multidisciplinary team–based primary care that includes self management support and care coordination has been shown to be effective in management of depression. These components of primary care are detailed in recommendations from the Community Preventive Services Task Force.4 It recommends collaborative care for the treatment of major depression in adults 18 years and older on the basis of strong evidence of effectiveness in improving short-term treatment outcomes. As defined, collaborative care and disease management of depressive disorders include a systematic, multicomponent, and team-based approach that “strengthens and supports self-care, while assuring that effective medical, preventive, and health maintenance interventions take place” to improve the quality and outcome of patient care.4

While attempting to develop a system in which individuals suffering from mental illness and mental disorders including depression are able to receive adequate treatment is a laudable goal in and of itself, there is a very fine line between assisting in an individual’s recovery, prying into their personal business, and violating their rights.

Notice, for instance, that nowhere in the recommendations is there the acknowledgement or discussion about whether or not these individuals suffering from depression have a choice to seek or continue treatment. The discussion centers only around identification and the implementation of a treatment plan.

What about individuals who don’t want to seek counseling, take antidepressants, or otherwise engage in a “treatment policy?” In addition, what about those individuals who are diagnosed as depressed for legitimate reasons or as a natural reaction to a specific event? What about the over-diagnosing of individuals as depressed when that is simply not the case at all?

Read for instance the U.S. News and World Report article by Lauran Neergaard which reads more as a press release than anything else. Neergaard attempts to explain the need for screening in the following way.

She writes:

Depression can go unrecognized, especially if patients don’t seek a diagnosis. Updating 2009 guidelines, the task force reviewed years of research and said Tuesday that screening for depression remains an important part of primary care for adults of all ages. This time around, the guideline separately addresses pregnant and postpartum women, concluding they, too, benefit from screening.

A variety of screening questionnaires are available, such as one that asks how often, over the last two weeks, patients have felt bad about themselves or felt like they’re a failure, had little interest in doing things or experienced problems sleeping, sleeping or concentrating.

Still undetermined, the task force said, is how often to screen, given that a person’s circumstances and risk could change over time.

Those aren’t new recommendations; several other health groups also have long urged depression screening, although there’s no data on how often it’s done. But the task force says one key is that appropriate follow-up be available to accurately diagnose those flagged by screening — and then to choose treatments that best address each person’s symptoms with the fewest possible side effects.

While examining the possibility that a medical issue or symptoms being suffered by a patient can be linked to depression, the idea that catch-all screenings should be in place is not only reminiscent of Brave New World, but is taken directly from the book. So are, I might add, the solutions to it.

Still, the constant screening of adults without a shred of concern for their own choices and decisions, cannot help but remind us of Scotland’s horrific practice and program called GIRFEC (Getting It Right For Every Child). Based on the idea of “supporting the wellbeing of children,” Scotland is now witnessing an approach in which every child is now given their own caseworker and every action, reaction, behavior and feeling of both the child and the parents is literally scrutinized by government. The result is that children are being ripped from loving homes. In homes where children do reside, parents are often so terrified of having them taken that anything resembling a normal family life brings the fear of a government social worker to the forefront of a parent’s concern.

Notice also how Neergaard describes the screening process and the questionnaires that are available. Some questionnaires ask questions like how often patients have felt bad about themselves or how often they have felt like they are a failure over the last two weeks. Others ask if the patient has little interest in doing things while others want to know if the patient has had trouble sleeping or concentrating. These are legitimate questions, but the answers to these questions, particularly if they are given to a medical doctor, psychiatrist or social worker, whose views of the world are dangerously narrow, could have far reaching and long lasting ramifications for the unsuspecting patient.

Parents may be visited by a child services agent, who generally is more than eager to confiscate their children. Some patients may be visited by a law enforcement agent, demanding they turn over their guns. Others may be forcibly hospitalized. All this because they made the mistake of trusting their physician or answering a question honestly.

Not only that, but look at the nature of the questions. In a country with massive unemployment yet still a notoriously consumerist and money-obsessed society, how could one who spends hours a day staring at a box that reinforces their own inadequacy not feel bad about themselves? And how bad is bad? Is bad feeling like you’re worth absolutely nothing or is bad feeling like the jogging suit you’re wearing makes you look ridiculous in front of people who are better dressed?

How often have you felt like a failure? Try asking this question to an individual who has lost his job because it has been sent to China so big corporations can reap bigger profits. Or perhaps to someone who is in the process of losing their home because they could not pay their mortgage after they lost their job. Or perhaps their wife became ill and, in the freest country in the world, they went bankrupt in order to save her life? Suppose if one asked that question of a man who had recently been released from prison for the hardened crime of possessing a plant, knowing his youth and any ability for his future are now virtually gone. Is it conceivable that these people may feel like failures?

Of course, the recommendations also suggests going after other easy targets such as pregnant women and those who have just given birth. These two population groups are notoriously in flux in terms of their emotions due to the fact that they are carrying a living human being in their bodies or have just given birth to one. Both exhibit a number of blips on the radar screen for any fanatical mental health professional to seize upon if they so desire.

As already mentioned, one of the most concerning aspects of these recommendations is the utter lack of concern or even acknowledgement of the patient’s right to refuse treatment or even refuse to be screened.

Allowing doctors, social workers or any other authority figure to violate rights based upon their conclusion that a person is suffering from a mental disorder is a slippery slope indeed.

In fact, it is such a slippery slope, that it would be best to stay far away from the edge. Scientific and mental health dictatorship has been experimented with in the past – we would be wise not to allow ourselves to repeat it.

Being Health Conscious Now The New “Conspiracy Theorist”!!

conspiracy-theory-caution_0

Remember when the fictitious notion of “conspiracy theorist” was supposed to represent the lone wolf weird lunatic in a dark basement? Believe it or not, this stereotype character never actually existed. That’s right, the basement lunatic conspiracy theorist was a fictional character invented by government, media and Hollywood (X-Files). The propaganda began at least a century ago, accelerated after the creation of the CIA and became more pronounced targeting American people after the JFK assassination as described in CIA document 1035-960. Specifically the techniques, which we see employed today all the time by mainstream media and CIA assets/online trolls, include:

*No significant new evidence has emerged which the [Warren] Commission did not consider.
*Critics usually overvalue particular items and ignore others.
*Conspiracy on the large scale often suggested would be impossible to conceal in the United States.
*Critics have often been enticed by a form of intellectual pride: they light on some theory and fall in love with it.
*Oswald would not have been any sensible person’s choice for a co-conspirator.
*Such vague accusations as that “more than ten people have died mysteriously” [during the Warren Commission’s inquiry] can always be explained in some natural way e.g.: the individuals concerned have for the most part died of natural causes.

Today of course, we need only to remove the references to JFK in this document and insert the current issue of the time and this document comes to life nicely. Remember, government and it’s globalist masters sit around and have meetings to decide what topics will fall under the banner of “conspiracy theory” and which will not. To anyone wide awake it’s much simpler to understand it this way: If a story or accusation interferes with the final new world order plans then it’s a “conspiracy”, if it doesn’t then it’s a different point of view or a debate.

The first thing everyone should understand about conspiracy theories is that you don’t get to decide what topics fall under this category, they do. And because they (government) decide, we’ve now seen the subjective, fictitious, propaganda based definition of “conspiracy theorist” morph dramatically over the last few decades. As mentioned before, we were first led to believe that conspiracy theorists were lunatics in basements separated from society, claiming things that were not proven while actually being wrong about everything. These people were supposed to have been essentially mentally diseased.

The conspiracy theorist then evolved into anyone who questioned 9/11 or any other new world order related false flag event. For years CIA’s mainstream media had worked hard to give the perception that “conspiracy theorist” represented a tiny percentage of Americans. But as the years went by, millions all over the U.S. and the world started waking up and now the government and its media mouthpiece started feeling the pressure. The dilemma was and still is, how to portray this growing number of awakened individuals/”conspiracy theorists” as an insignificant small group of people while at the same time adding more and more people to the group by deliberately expanding the topics that make you a conspiracy theorist.

The dilemma of this situation was finally addressed by CIA’s Newsweek in a desperate article by Kurt Eichenwald May of 2014 entitled “The Plots to Destroy America“. In the article, Eichenwald, with seeming foreknowledge of the Measles vaccine dilemma that was coming later in the year as a result of CDC whistleblower Dr William W Thompson’s testimony admitting the Measles vaccine link to autism in African American children, had this to say about the measles (exposed) vaccine:

In 2008, no one in America caught measles and 13,278 people contracted whooping cough. By 2013, measles infected at least 276 people in the U.S. and there were more than 24,000 cases of whooping cough. Medical experts attribute this trend to declining numbers of people being vaccinated, in large part fueled by a belief that doctors and pharmaceutical companies are hiding the dangers of immunizations to protect profits, even though earnings in this niche are so comparatively small that six out of seven companies have dropped out of the business in the past 35 years. Now, because of this false belief advanced by scientific frauds and celebrities, vaccine-preventable diseases that were once on the brink of extinction are roaring back.

Eichenwald rolls on explaining:

George W. Bush murdered thousands by orchestrating 9/11. Barack Obama is a Kenyan national and holds the presidency illegally. Education standards developed by state governors are part of an anti-Christian communist plot that will turn children gay. Unemployment rates and the reported numbers for Obamacare sign-ups are lies engineered by the White House. Water fluoridation doesn’t prevent cavities in children and has been adopted for a range of nefarious purposes. And on and on they go.

Conspiracy theories have been woven into the fabric of American society since before the signing of the Constitution. But what was once dismissed as the amusing ravings of the tin-foil-hat crowd has in recent years crossed a threshold, experts say, with delusions, fictions and lunacy now strangling government policies and creating national health risks. “These kinds of theories have the effect of completely distorting any rational discussion we can have in this country,’’ says Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center who recently wrote a report on the impact of what is known as the Agenda 21 conspiracy. “They are having a real impact now.”

Experts say the number and significance of conspiracy theories are reaching levels unheard-of in recent times, in part because of ubiquitous and faster communications offered by Internet chat rooms, Twitter and other social media. “Conspiracy narratives are more common in public discourse than they were previously,’’ says Eric Oliver, a professor of political science at the University of Chicago who has published research on the phenomenon. “We seem to have crossed a threshold.”

The fears about Agenda 21 are a prime example. The name refers to a nonbinding statement of intent signed in 1992 by President George H.W. Bush and 177 other world leaders. The idea was simple: Under the auspices of the U.N., those countries expressed their interest in managing urban development and land-use policies in ways that minimized the impact on the environment. At the time, mainstream conservative and liberal politicians considered the concept to be fairly inconsequential.

As can be seen, the article identifies such a wide spectrum of beliefs under the new “conspiracy theory” umbrella that one might suspect this could arguably represent 75-99% of Americans. The list is long and includes anyone who doesn’t agree with Agenda 21, Common Core, the Bin Laden death hoax, the dangers of cell phones and more. So many are the topics that the average American could and would potentially find at least one belief to agree with on the list, thus officially making them a “conspiracy theorist”.

The only strategy Eichenwald and CIA fall back on is the notion that- yes, we admit a lot of people are suffering from the mental disease of conspiracy theories (translation: waking up), and because this large amount of people (who are waking up) are starting to represent a possible majority, they are a “danger” to America (translation: The new world order plans). Thus in this article the globalist and their CIA approved writer are on the one hand admitting that everyone is waking up, while at the same time still appealing to their audience that essentially everyone is crazy and dangerous but you can still be “normal” by obeying.

This is proof that a lot more people are awake than the media is willing to admit. Sadly, the ongoing agenda of CIA’s mainstream media and government is not letting up by any means in 2015 and beyond as can be seen by the media almost psychopathic attack on those who want to seek a healthy lifestyle.

We are regularly now seeing those who DON’T want to ingest Fluoride into their bodies accused of being conspiracy nuts. Anyone who understands the compounds in vaccines admitted by the CDC and doesn’t want those toxins to go into their body is now a conspiracy theorist nut. Anyone who doesn’t want to eat genetically modified organisms and damage their own DNA, or even take the chance of damaging their own DNA is now a conspiracy theorist. Just the element of not having faith in corporate cronies and dirty lying corrupt politicians is enough to get you on the conspiracy theorist list.

The definition of conspiracy theorist has in fact reached new levels never imagined by the average person. Simply wanting to eat only natural food and not take in any known toxins into your body of any kind (above and beyond vaccines), according to CIA’s mainstream media and government is enough to get you labeled as a conspiracy theorist nut.

Yes, we are finally reaching a point in history where it is almost officially impossible to not be a conspiracy theorist unless you agree to being poisoned! This is what happens when a state who has open plans for a new world order and massive stated depopulation goals can control reality with their ministry of truth propaganda media.

If there is anything good to take from all this it is that with stupid moves like this the corporate media will hopefully turn more and more people against it. Obviously everyone wants to live a happy healthy life. Why would we not? If there is even a tiny chance that genetically modified foods and vaccines with known toxins in them could harm you, why would we not want to exercise our own personal judgment on whether we want this for our kids, our loved ones and ourselves??

Reason for hope

The pure insanity of the new world order psychopaths is truly upon us and we are seeing them in action in real-time. So many of us are awake and we all know we will never go along with any of this monkey business. Our duty is therefore to continue waking up as many people as possible. Our voices are strong and getting stronger every day while their voices (the mainstream media) are dying. Spread the word, tell your family and friends they are all “conspiracy theorists” if they believe in health. Let’s make sure this is the (hopefully) final Intelligence blunder of the globalist. The blunder of thinking they could take over our own bodies, tell us what to eat and even what to inject in our own bodies. Hopefully the magnitude of this personal psychological insult will be the final straw to break the new world orders’ back.

Hopefully humanity is observing, reading, learning and taking notes. We are all now getting a blueprint for tyranny. We’ve seen all the steps in slow motion. We now know all their moves. Let’s take advantage of this bold yet ridiculous expansion of “conspiracy theorist” and see how far we can take the awakening process this time. Most important of all, let’s not forget that this battle of information does have an ending date. Perhaps this is the beginning of the end for the Orwellian empire of deceit that seeks permanent world power.

WebMD And Monsanto Propaganda

medicine

If you’re one of the nearly 12 million people who visit WebMD.com every month, you’re getting a healthy dose of Monsanto propaganda along with your “health research.”

Monsanto is one of the many corporate “sponsors” of WebMD. That means Monsanto pays WebMD in order to pepper WebMD’s website with advertisements and advertorials, disguised as legitimate journalism.

WebMD Health Corp. (NASDAQ: WBMD) is a publicly held corporation that answers first and foremost to its shareholders. The company, with its long history of deceiving consumers and partnering up with drug, junk food and biotech companies, is not, and never was, in the business of caring about consumers—a fact meticulously documented in an article published this week (January 19, 2016) by Mercola.com.

Why bother to ask one corrupt corporation, WebMD, to cut ties with another, equally or exceedingly corrupt corporation (Monsanto)?

Because Monsanto’s WebMD propaganda is cleverly disguised as legitimate health advice. So cleverly, that millions of visitors to the site probably have no idea that they’re being duped.

TAKE ACTION: Tell WebMD CEO David Schlanger to Stop Promoting Monsanto!

No Poison Is Good For You In Small Doses

poison

(The Real Agenda) A not so recent practice and talk point from mainstream media and conventional medicine says that inventions such as vaccines or other products manufactured by large corporate multinationals are safe, or that they are not as dangerous for people because the doses of life-threatening chemicals in them is very low.

It is important to raise the point here that no toxic chemical has ever been proven to be safe for human use via ingestion, injection, inhalation, spray or spreading it over someone’s body.

Ingesting, inhaling, injecting or spreading toxic chemicals on someone, just because the amount of one or a number of chemicals is low is not only illogical, but also equally dangerous for those who use the products.

The danger of getting sick or dying due to exposure to toxic chemicals in food, cleaning products or those used in vaccines, for example, is magnified when the product combines several hundreds of toxic chemicals which are rarely written on labels.

Let’s take vaccines as an example. The average flu vaccine contains 25,000 times more mercury than it is legally allowed in drinking water. Yet, these vaccines are provided as ‘safe’ tools to fight disease. Many vaccine inserts alert people that the vaccines have not been tested for potential carcinogenic effects.

It is not uncommon to find hundreds of websites kept by researchers and parents of children or relatives who were severely damaged by vaccines, but very few have been able to succinctly explain why it is not a good idea to inject poisonous chemicals in a child or an adult. The best top-ten reasons not to vaccinate were recently presented by Michelle Goldstein, on Vactruth.com.

“Once vaccinated, the potential side-effects cannot be easily undone, if at all. These include death, sudden infant death syndrome, auto-immune disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, allergies, asthma, ADHD, autism, Guillian-Barré Syndrome and other neurological damage,” explains Goldstein, a mental health therapist who also works with holistic medicine.

Goldstein provides ten key reasons that all parents and adults should consider and research before deciding to vaccinate:

Vaccines have never been proven safe or effective. This alone should raise enough questions for anyone who desires to use so-called immunizations.

Vaccines do NOT work. If the first reason was not enough to make you question vaccines, this one should. As explained by many health practitioners, vaccines inhibit the body’s natural immune reaction to cope with disease on top of polluting a child’s body with often unknown amounts of dangerous chemicals.

The very first vaccine was a disaster. As many other accepted myths, vaccine effectiveness and safety come from the minds of hijacked modern medicine establishments that were taken over by organizations such as the Rockefeller, Ford and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundations. By the way, these organizations are creations of the oil industry whose byproducts are found in drinking water and of course vaccines.

Vaccines are highly profitable for pharmaceutical companies and the healthcare industry. This means that, even if vaccines were effective, which they are not, profit most likely overcomes safety, which is why pandemics such as the H1N1 and Ebola usually result in billions of dollars in profits for the farmaceutical industry, which is also favored by Rockefeller, and other ‘philanthropic’  organizations.

All vaccines contain a number of toxic poisons and chemicals that are linked to serious neurological damage including aluminum, thimerosal (methyl mercury), antibiotics, monosodium glutamate (MSG) and formaldehyde. How many times have you thought about ingesting or injecting yourself or your kids with anti-freeze, lead, cadmium, glycerine or acetone? Well, those ingredients are also found in vaccines.

Every -independently conducted- study comparing unvaccinated to vaccinated children demonstrates that unvaccinated children enjoy far superior health. This is one of the points that is not understood by the pro-vaccine crowd. They want to mandate that all children and adults be vaccinated, even though unvaccinated children fair better than those whose immune systems have been tainted with vaccines.

Vaccines cause a host of “chronic, incurable, and life-threatening diseases,” including autism, asthma, ADHD, auto-immune disorders, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, food allergies and brain damage. By the way, if you don’t believe this, ask yourself why do countries create “vaccine court”? Vaccine courts are entities created by the pharmaceutical industry and government agencies to deal with lawsuits brought up by the parents of children who have been damaged by vaccines. Even though the existence of these courts is widely unknown, the truth is that they have paid millions of dollars in compensation to families who were affected by vaccine poisoning.

Scientifically speaking, the only way to create true life-long immunity to a disease is through natural exposure to the disease in which the body creates true antibodies and immunity on many levels.

Vaccines kill infants, children and adults. No matter how safe pharmaceutical companies say their products are or how their safety has been reviewed by health authorities. Any study conducted by the pharmaceutical industry which is later submitted to government health organization will ever be performed objectively. Remember that pharmaceutical companies write their own rules and conduct their own safety and effectiveness studies. What can you expect from that?

Perhaps the top reason that explains why vaccines are untrustworthy is the fact that if you or a loved one suffers from a vaccine injury, pharmaceutical companies and physicians hold no medical liability. Do you know any other industry in which companies are not liable for defects or damages that result from the poor performance of their products? How about an industry who has zero responsibility for damages caused by their products? There are not any. This privilege is reserved to the pharmaceutical industry alone.

Another case of alleged “small, insignificant exposure” to dangerous chemicals is food products, which are laden with synthetically made conservatives, colors and flavors.

In case you need to see it on mainstream media to believe it, here is a report from CNN in which it is explained how 7 chemicals that are understood as safe for human consumption by health authorities, are actually poisonous for those who ingest them. Among them are: Azodicarbonamide, which is used in bread. Tartrazine, an artificial color that is used in thousands of food products. It is better known as Yellow No. 5 and No. 6.

Another toxic combination is that of Propyl gallate and butylated hydroxytoluene. Both are used as preservatives to keep manufactured food products from going bad and lasting longer on the shelf. Along with these two is Sodium nitrite, which is used for preservation and coloring of packaged meats.

Next comes tert-Butylhydroquinone, which is a form of butane. It is added to crackers, potato chips and some fast food. Similarly, Silicon dioxide is also added to food products such as “dry coffee creamer, dried soups and other powdery foods. It is also used as an insect repellent, removing the oily film that covers an insect’s body, causing them to dry out and die.”

This article concentrated on vaccines and some unknown chemicals added to foods, and leaves out some traditional offenders, such as BPA, MSG, hydrogenated oils, aspartame and hormone-bending chemicals, because we have already written about them before. Also, because both vaccines and food products are popularly exempted from scrutiny under the excuse that the small amounts of disease-causing chemicals they contain are easily disposed of by the human body, which is also a lie. It is important to remember that even if our bodies had the ability to get rid of some chemicals, the damage caused by them takes place before they are excreted out.

With so much land available to plant clean food and so much science available to create medicines that actually benefit our health, it is more than shocking to learn that there are people out there who still believe in 19th-century “snake oil” style solutions to their health problems or that people prefer consuming food products which are contaminated with hundreds of toxic substances put in them on purpose, despite the well-known dangers posed by them.

Knowing what to do about the chemicals in vaccines and food products is as simple as asking yourself the following question: Would I voluntarily ingest mercury, formaldehyde, anti-freeze, lead or cadmium? If the answer is NO, it would be necessary to ask why then would I ingest these and other chemicals in food or inject them into a child or an adult? If the answer YES, by all means knock yourself out. Inject away and eat away without remorse.

Birth Trauma And The Dark Side Of Modern Medicine (VIDEO)

Birth-Trauma

On this week’s Real Politik we speak with Jeanice Barcelo on modern medicine’s theft and brutalization of the human birthing process. Barcelo is a transformational teacher in the movement to expose the violence of hospital birth and to return birthing to the home. She is also the author of the 2014 book, Birth Trauma and the Dark Side of Modern Medicine: Exposing Systematic Violence During Hospital Childbirth and the Hijacking of Human Love, a work that examines the horrors of technologically-managed pregnancy and childbirth, and how we as a society have come to accept this as a substitute for what was once a truly divine and spiritual event.

Barcelo has spent the last 15 years uncovering the long-term and inter-generational impact of primal trauma on the human body-mind-spirit system. She views the ever-escalating amount of violence being inflicted on babies and pregnant mothers as part of a social agenda. Barcelo has lectured extensively on this and has created an important curriculum to help end the lineage on abuse, violence and trauma, and restore humanity’s capacity to love. More information on Jeanice Barcelo and her work is available at BirthofaNewEarth.com.

Interview Highlights

Barcelo began to investigate the industrialization of the birth process as a result of her own life and personal experiences of birth trauma and how that has impacted personal relations with loved ones. “[There was] extreme pain and anguish that I felt about what happened to my children, and also the ongoing pain of never really properly bonding with my mother. There’s been a lineage of disturbed love in my family line–a breakdown in human love.

When I sought healing for my birth trauma I began to discover that the roots of this breakdown in love are actually a result of what happens to us when we’re in the womb and while we’re being born. What is happening and being done to us through the medical system is really causing severe brain damage and an alteration in our ability to love, and to be loved. It’s enormously important for us to understand what’s happening so that we can break the bonds that are holding us to this system [that is] having us pass on the trauma to our children.

Barcelo argues that in the early twentieth century the paradigm of Western medicine was transformed, largely to the detriment of those it purports to serve. “What people need to understand,” Barcelo begins, “is that for millennia the medicine that our race used was created by the creator. And so the use of plants, the use of what we find in nature to heal any ailments is absolutely and infinitely more powerful than anything the medical people can conjure up. They’re using toxic chemicals to make what they call medicine.”

The people behind the medical system are those like the Rockefellers and the Rothchilds and the Carnegies and the Morgans. These are people that have an agenda that is not beneficial to all of humanity. It’s an agenda to create a race of slaves that will be in service to think of themselves as ‘elite.’ The medical was hijacked in the early 1900s by these people. They sort of finagled their way in by offering money to the medical schools, so that medical schools could pay for new equipment, research, and that sort of thing. And then they insisted on being on the boards of these medical schools. Before too long they had taken over the medical schools, and they have devised a system of what’s called prenatal care and technologically-managed childbirth that is nothing less than trauma-based mind control. Every single thing that they’re inflicting on babies while they’re in the womb, and on pregnant mothers and babies during hospital birth, is specifically to undermine the development of the human brain, to alter the development of the nervous system, and to break down the bonds of human love.

Barcelo notes that modern medicine’s intervention in parenthood, the birthing process, and child development begins while the baby is in the womb with, for example, repeated ultrasounds that impeded fetal development and impair fertility of male children, and continues with artificial inducement labor and the infant’s immediate entry to the world.  “When you interfere with the ability of the mother and child and father and child to make a strong connection in love during the first hour after birth, you are setting the stage for extreme violence later in life,” Barcelo contends. “There are certain windows of neurological opportunity that happen during the birth process and in the first hour after birth. If they are missed, for whatever reason, brain damage ensues. The further removed this child is from being able to bond, the more dangerous that child can become. The child can also be totally removed from reality through things such as autism–the whole capacity to be able to function in the way the creator intended us to function is completely cut off though the breaking of the bonds and the disruption of the nervous system and the brain.”

Among the most traumatic, unnecessary, and mind-altering aspects of the birth process experienced by mothers and infants in modern hospitals is circumcision. “This is happening regularly in American hospitals, and it’s happening to babies every single day,” Barcelo points out.

We’ve got more than a million babies a year being strapped to circumstraint boards and having the most sensitive parts of their penis cut off. The operation takes anywhere from ten minutes to up to thirty minutes when [doctors] are demonstrating how to do it to the medical students. That baby is screaming sounds that you’ll never hear from any person ever as it’s being tortured. And the doctors are saying the baby’s not feeling any pain while the baby’s screaming!

Something is deeply psychologically wrong with these doctors who are willing to do this repeatedly. They’re probably all circumcised themselves, and just carrying on trauma by inflicting it on other innocent children. They’re not all there. There’s something else going on. Their humanity is not present during a circumcision. Anybody that can hurt a child in that way is not in their right mind.

Barcelo argues that both circumcision and swaddling are procedures advocated by modern medicine that have long-lasting consequences in the psyches of individuals. Circumcision “causes permanent brain damage. The same with swaddling. If you take the blood of a swaddled infant the cortisol levels are off the charts. That infant is not sleeping. That infant is in parasympathetic shock. It’s the same exact thing that happens to an infant that’s being circumcised. If they can’t flee and they can’t fight, they freeze. They go in to a form of paralysis in order to survive the torture or the threat to their lives. Parasympathetic shock is the goal of trauma-based mind control–to cause parasympathetic shock. To get these children to dissociate, meaning to get the soul to leave the body, so that altered personality can be called forth. That altered personality will be much more willing to be in service to the dark side.”

Zika Virus Spreads To North America

Photo: www.ticotimes.net

The virus transmitted by mosquitoes can cause microcephaly in fetuses and newborns.

(The Real Agenda) The Zika virus is phylogenetically similar to those of dengue and yellow fever. It was first discovered in the Zika forest in Uganda, in 1947.

Apparently observers found that monkeys who were being monitored to control yellow fever were also infected with the virus.

The Zika virus was relatively unknown until 2007 when there was a large outbreak on the island of Yap and other islands off the Federated States of Micronesia. The result of the outbreak was a total of 8,187 people infected.

Between October 2013 and February 2014 a new outbreak arrived in French Polynesia, where it is believed that 8,264 new cases of Zika were detected.

According to scientists, Zika’s main mode of transmission is through the same insect that transmits dengue: the Aedes aegypti mosquito. But there are cases of sexual transmission as well, as the virus may remain alive in sperm for longer periods of time.

Sika can also survive and be transmitted during the perinatal period and be transmitted from mother to fetus via blood. The virus is not transmitted through breastfeeding.

The vast majority of infected people do not develop clinical symptoms right away, but when they do, they are characterized by red spots on the skin, intermittent fever, spots on the eyes and pains in muscles, joints and head.

Less frequently, doctors have detected edema, sore throat, cough, vomiting and blood in the semen. Symptoms generally disappear spontaneously after a period that can range from three to seven days. However, joint pains may persist for up to a month.

Up until now, scientists say there is no treatment for the Zika virus. Some symptoms can be controlled with the use of acetaminophen or dipyrone, to manage the fever and pain.

In the case of itchy rashes, patients can consider the use of anti-histamines. It is not a good idea to use aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs, due to an increased risk of bleeding complications.

In late November, after a high incidence of microcephaly in some states of Brazil, where there was also an increase in the number of cases of Zika, the Ministry of Health confirmed the relationship between both diseases.

Evidence emerged after a study that detected the virus in blood samples collected from a baby born with microcephaly in Ceará. The baby died eventually.

It is not yet known how the virus operates once it is inside the human body or what mechanisms lead to microcephaly, but cases are being investigated.

In Brazil, the latest epidemiological bulletin recorded 3,530 cases of microcephaly related to Zika virus infections between October 2015 and early 2016. Health authorities are investigating 46 deaths of babies with microcephaly, that are being regarded as consequences of Zika virus infections.

Last week, the United States recorded the first case of microcephaly related to Zika virus in Hawaii. According to The New York Times, the baby’s mother would have been infected when she traveled to Brazil in May last year.

In the United States, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recommends that pregnant women not to travel to 14 countries in Latin America; including Brazil, Puerto Rico and Colombia.

In Brazil, the Ministry of Health recommends that pregnant women protect themselves from insect bites. To this end, it suggests avoiding the times and places where there is presence of mosquitoes, wear clothing that protects most of the body and use repellents.

As so now, the prime suspect of causing the Zika virus is the mosquito Aedes aegypti, which makes it difficult to prevent its spread.

This mosquito also transmits four types of dengue and chikungunya, a disease that attacks the joints and causes severe pain.

The mosquito thrives in clean standing water, so it is important to prevent this buildup in tires, potted plants and other open containers. To avoid bites, use repellant and put screens on the windows and doors.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), only in 2015, Zika cases were confirmed in nine American countries: Brazil, Chile -in the Easter Island, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Paraguay, Suriname and Venezuela.

This week, US authorities confirmed the first case of Zika in the country: a man who lives in Texas and recently visited El Salvador.

In Brazil, last year 1.6 million suspected cases of dengue were reported.

Because Zika is considered a mild type of dengue its cases are often accounted for as that disease instead of Zika.

Colombia is another country with a high number of infected patients: at least 11,000 cases have been confirmed according to the latest information obtained in that country.

In Brazil, so far, the Ministry of Health has confirmed three deaths that may have been related to Zika virus: a baby, a man who also had lupus and a girl of 16 years of age.

‘Cancer Screening Has Never Saved Lives’ – BMJ Study Concludes

breast cancer awareness march

Millions have marched for “cancer causes.” Millions more have been diagnosed “early” and now believe screening saved their lives. But a new study confirms something we have been reporting on since our inception: In most cases, screening not only has not “saved lives,” but actually increases your risk of dying.

An extremely important new study published in the British Medical Journal titled, “Why cancer screening has never been shown to “save lives”—and what we can do about it,” confirms something we have been reporting upon at GreenMedInfo.com since our inception, namely, cancer screening has not lived up to its long held promise of “saving lives” because disease-specific reductions in mortality do not equate to reductions in overall mortality. Worse, in some cases overall mortality actually increased because of screening. 

In the new study, Vinay Prasad and colleagues, argue that the real benchmark for the success of any cancer screening program is if the “early stage” cancers being diagnosed and treated actually result in a reduction in the overall mortality.

For instance, we have reported extensively on the widespread misclassification of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) as a bono fide malignant cancer, as well as its epidemic level overdiagnosis and overtreatment. Tens of fhousands of women are diagnosed each year with these so-called “early stage breast cancers,” even though the National Cancer Institute itself acknowledges it should be classified as a benign or indolent lesions of epithelial origin. The New England Journal of Medicine published a study in 2012 shows that approximately 1.3 million women were diagnosed with DCIS in the past 30 years, with most receiving either mastectomy, lumpectomy, radiation, chemotherapy, or some combination thereof. Ironically, many of these women ardently believe that their lives were “saved” by the screening and treatment, succumbing to the biomedical equivalent of Stockholm syndrome where identifying with the ‘aggressor’ becomes palliative. In reality, most suffered irreparable harm not from the “cancer,” but from both the psychological and physical effects of being wrongly diagnosed and treated. If the end point were not breast cancer specific mortality (‘invasive’ breast cancer has not declined but increased with screening, indicating overdiagnosis), but overall mortality, it is likely that these DCIS diagnosed women’s lives were significantly truncated because of screening programs; at the very least, the quality of their lives would have been significantly negatively impacted.

mammograms

Much of the damage, pain, and suffering associated with over-medicalization could have been avoided if public health advocates and private industry promoters of screening programs had realized that reducing the risk of cancer in one bodily location — the breast, the colon, the lung, the thyroid — does not necessarily translate into a reduction in mortality risk everywhere else. It is this meme-plex of medically-reinforced ignorance which drives the many disease-specific, multi-billion dollar, cause-marketing campaigns, like the heavily pinkwashed “Breast Cancer Awareness” campaign, which increasingly the public is acknowledging to be a highly unethical money-making scheme.

The article summarizes the problem associated with confusing disease specific with overall mortality reduction, succinctly:

Despite growing appreciation of the harms of cancer screening,1 2 3 advocates still claim that it “saves lives.”4 This assertion rests, however, on reductions in disease specific mortality rather than overall mortality.

Using disease specific mortality as a proxy for overall mortality deprives people of information about their chief concern: reducing their risk of dying.5 6 Although some people may have personal reasons for wanting to avoid a specific diagnosis, the burden falls on providers to provide clear information about both disease specific and overall mortality and to ensure that the overall goal of healthcare—to improve quantity and quality of life—is not undermined.7

In this article we argue that overall mortality should be the benchmark against which screening is judged and discuss how to improve the evidence upon which screening rests.”

And so, without the proper benchmark or end point, all the educational and fund-raising efforts going towards “reducing deaths” or “saving lives” from breast, prostate, lung, skin, brain, [insert body part], become misleading, if not overtly propagandist in nature.

Indeed, the extant scientific evidence itself reveals that at best the present disease specific agenda for “cancer prevention” is pseudo-scientific. In the section of the study subtitled, “Why cancer screening might not reduce overall mortality,” the authors summarize what the literature reveals on the topic:

Discrepancies between disease specific and overall mortality were found in direction or magnitude in seven of 12 randomised trials of cancer screening.8 Despite reductions in disease specific mortality in the majority of studies, overall mortality was unchanged or increased. In cases where both mortality rates were reduced the improvement was larger in overall mortality than in disease specific mortality. This suggests an imbalance in non-disease specific deaths, which warrants examination and explanation. A systematic review of meta-analyses of cancer screening trials found that three of 10 (33%) showed reductions in disease specific mortality and that none showed reductions in overall mortality.9

The implications of this are profound.

As we reported previously with Anjelina Jolie’s decision to have her breasts and ovaries prophylactically removed, ostensibly to “reduce her risk of dying,” removing healthy body parts to prevent disease-specific mortality is unlikely to reduce the overall risk of dying. And yet, the “Jolie effect” is a well established phenomena. Her decision was lauded the world over as courageous and  an “evidence-based” precautionary step, with tens of thousands of women (and some men) following suit. We hope the new BMJ study raises a flag of true caution for those who may habitually and uncritically follow the celebrity-centric herd mentality.

The significant harms of screening overdiagnosis and overtreatment extend to men as well. For instance, aggressive prostate screening programs over the past few decades have resulted in the removal and/or irradiation of millions of men’s prostates. A 2004 study found that an astounding 200,000 men are being diagnosed annually with prostate cancer.1 Tragically, the 2013 National Cancer Institute report referenced above also found that so-called “early stage prostate cancer,” high grade intraepithelial prostatic neoplasia (HGPIN), is also essentially a benign lesion within prostatic epithelial tissue, not unlike DCIS in women’s breasts. In other words, millions of men were diagnosed with a potentially lethal “pre-cancer” or “early stage cancer” they never had.

As an aside, it should be noted that even in the case of lesions of true concern for malignancy, there is always hope. Cancer is not an inexorably lethal, genetic mutation-driven process that happens in an environmental, nutritional, and psycho-spiritual/emotional vacuum. Instead of viewing it as the biological equivalent of a terrorist, and cutting, burning, and poisoning the target tissue (and, collaterally, the entire body of the host), we need to abandon the warfare model of allopathic medicine and adopt one that focuses on targeting cancer stem cells in non-toxic ways, looking at carcinogenesis through the lens of the informational dysregulation of genetic and epigenetic pathways in the cell; informational “disease” in contradistinction to physiochemically-based disease is, of course, more prone to being reversed. Cancer, in this view, can be halted in its tracks, and even regressed, assuming that, along with informational corrections (e.g. “nanopharmacological” approaches like homeopathy, “energy healing,” high quality food (which is also information-containing)), the tumor microenvironment can be adjusted back to healthier conditions through detoxification, lifestyle modifications, mind-body interventions, and targeted, “high dose” nutritional support.

The new study explained how prostate screening programs have created “off target” deaths, primarily through the high rate of false positives, overdiagnosis of non-harmful cancers (e.g. HGPIN), and detection of incidental findings (i.e. unintentionally discovered conditions):

For example, prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing yields numerous false positive results, which contribute to over one million prostate biopsies a year.12Prostate biopsies are associated with serious harms, including admission to hospital and death.12 13 Moreover, men diagnosed with prostate cancer are more likely to have a heart attack or commit suicide in the year after diagnosis or to die of complications of treatment for cancers that may never have caused symptoms.12 13

Shockingly, PSA-based prostate screening has been found to have a false positive rate of about 75%.2 Obviously, given this finding, there is nothing specific at all about the prostate “specific” antigen test, which is why the United States Preventive Services Task Force now strongly recommends against it.

How the Public Is Misled Into Believing “Screening Saves Lives”

As we have explored in previous writings, such as “The Dark Side of Breast Cancer Awareness Month” and “A DIRE WARNING: The Cancer Industry Owns The Media And Your Mind,” the public is intentionally misled into believing a priori cancer screening saves lives even when no real, independent scientific evidence exists to support it.

breast cancer

The new study reveals just how truly inflated the public’s expectations have become:

A systematic review has shown that the public has an inflated sense of the benefits and discounted sense of the harms of mammography screening, the cervical smear test, and PSA screening.  In one study 68% of women thought that mammography would lower their risk of getting breast cancer, 62% thought that screening at least halved the rate of breast cancer, and 75% thought that 10 years of screening would prevent 10 breast cancer deaths per 1000 women. Even the most optimistic estimates of screening do not approach these numbers. The most recent Cochrane review of randomised controlled trials of PSA screening failed to show a reduction in disease specific death. The Cochrane review of mammography did not show reduced breast cancer deaths when adequately randomised trials were analysed. 

Advocates of screening have emphasised its benefits, sometimes verging on fear mongering.  Others, including us, think that shared decision making should be the focus. But as long as we are unsure of the mortality benefits of screening we cannot provide people with the information they need to make an informed choice. We must be honest about this uncertainty.

A summary of the Swiss medical board’s decision not to recommend mammography shows that for every 1000 women who undergo screening one breast cancer death is averted (from five to four), while non-breast cancer deaths either remain at 39 or may increase to 40.  If non-breast cancer deaths remain the same, a woman must weigh net benefit against harms. If screening increases non-breast cancer deaths to 40, women would simply be trading one type of death for another, at the cost of serious morbidity, anxiety, and expense. Women should be told that to date, with over 600 000 women studied, there is no clear evidence of a reduction in overall mortality with mammography screening.”

The public’s uncritical trust in screening programs help keep hidden the significant harm they produce; harms that are further obfuscated by industry-sponsored research. The study cites the fact that, “of 57 studies [reviewed] only 7% quantified overdiagnosis and just 4% reported the rate of false positive results.” They also found that, “When researchers do examine the harms of screening the results are typically sobering”:

False positive results on breast cancer screening have been associated with psychosocial distress as great as a breast cancer diagnosis 6 months after the event. False positive results affect over 60% of women undergoing screening mammography for a decade or more, and 12-13% of all men who have undergone three or four screening rounds with PSA. In the NLST [National Lung Screening Trial] 39.1% of people had at least one positive test result, of which 96.4% were false positives.

Overdiagnosis affected 18% of people diagnosed with lung cancer on low dose CT in the NLST, and researchers have found that as many as one in three diagnoses of invasive breast cancer (or one in two for invasive cancer and carcinoma in situ) by mammography constitute overdiagnosis. These numbers are broadly equivalent to those found with most major screening tests.”

There are also well-known, though rarely acknowledged, harms associated with the screening technologies themselves. For instance, x-ray mammography uses a particular type of gamma radiation that has been found to have as much as a six fold increased carcinogenicity. Another example is CT scans. It has been estimated that .4% of all cancers in the U.S. are caused by them. Clearly cancer screening programs that rely on intrinsically carcinogenic diagnostic technologies (as well as carcinogenic treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy) must be halted if they can not actually be proven to “save lives,” which, I believe, the study clearly demonstrates.

The study concludes, powerfully:

We encourage healthcare providers to be frank about the limitations of screening—the harms of screening are certain, but the benefits in overall mortality are not. Declining screening may be a reasonable and prudent choice for many people. Providers should also encourage participation in open studies.

We call for higher standards of evidence, not to satisfy an esoteric standard, but to enable rational, shared decision making between doctors and patients. As Otis Brawley, chief scientific and medical officer of the American Cancer Society, often states: “We must be honest about what we know, what we don’t know, and what we simply believe.”
