Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity From Microwave Technology Finally Medically Proven


By: Catherine J. Frompovich, Activist Post |

Finally, there’s documented medical proof that electromagnetic hypersensitivity is a real-time health issue that actually can be verified using standard medical procedures and testing capabilities.

An international group of researchers aced it when they published their findings from the clinical study “Metabolic and Genetic Screening of Electromagnetic Hypersensitive Subjects as a Feasible Tool for Diagnostics and Intervention” in the November 2014 issue of Mediators of Inflammation.

So, the million-dollar-question has to be, “When will utility companies get up to speed on the latest in microwave technology damage to the human body?” Also, “When will public utility commissions nationwide institute proper procedures to protect consumers from such damage?”

Pennsylvanians currently are being bombarded by non-thermal health problems from public utility companies’ electric, natural gas and water Smart Meters, which operate using microwave technology.

Furthermore, the PA House Consumer Affairs Committee Chair Robert Godshall sits on Opt-Out Bills that will permit electrosensitive consumers and others to keep safe analog meters, which have been in use for decades.

Below is the Press Release Pennsylvania Smart Meter Awareness (PASMA) released November 19, 2015, which discusses pertinent issues to EHS and Smart Meters.



Electromagnetic hypersensitivity, or electrosensitivity (EHS), is a condition affecting more and more individuals who are exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and radiofrequencies (RFs) from radios, televisions, Wi-Fi, “dirty electricity” coming over household wires from utility companies smart meters (SMs), microwaves, photocopiers, plus cell phones and towers. Worldwide, the numbers of people affected by EMFs and RFs increase exponentially, and add to other environmentally sensitivity-related illnesses such as multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), sick building syndrome, Persian Gulf War veteran syndrome, and amalgam disease.

In Pennsylvania, children’s and adults’ health is being harmed by electric, natural gas, and water utility companies’ smart meters!

The World Health Organization (WHO), in a December 2005 Background paper, stated:

EHS is characterized by a variety of non-specific symptoms that differ from individual to individual. The symptoms are certainly real and can vary widely in their severity. Whatever its cause, EHS can be a disabling problem for the affected individual. [….] For EHS individuals with long lasting symptoms and severe handicaps, therapy should be directed principally at reducing symptoms and functional handicaps. This should be done in close co-operation with a qualified medical specialist (to address the medical and psychological aspects of the symptoms) and a hygienist (to identify and, if necessary, control factors in the environment that are known to have adverse health effects of relevance to the patient).

Treatment should aim to establish an effective physician-patient relationship, help develop strategies for coping with the situation and encourage patients to return to work and lead a normal social life.

WHO published online information about that workshop on electromagnetic hypersensitivity in 2004 here

PASMA wants to remind the Pennsylvania state legislature and the PA Public Utility Commission (PUC) that EHS is a harmful health—and even-life-threatening—issue for those affected, which utility companies are remiss about, in understanding that harm, by denying that such effects are medically proven and that SM-caused EHS cannot—and will not—be mediated by replacing AMI SMs with EMF-free analog meters, which were used safely for decades, and which other states’ utility companies are allowing. The control factor in the environment relevant to many EHS problems is traceable to the installation of smart meters on home properties.

PASMA further wants to point out what the WHO stated at the EMF workshop, which utilities, the PA legislature and PA PUC need to implement: help develop strategies for coping with the situation and encourage patients to return to work and lead a normal social life.

For those EHS individuals impacted by SMs, legal opt-outs from SMs are a necessary ethical and medical exception to PA 129, and must be granted. SM-induced health issues are serious matters, which need to be addressed intelligently by state officials, and very soon, as too many Pennsylvanians cannot lead normal lives due to Smart Meters.

PASMA respectfully directs PA legislators and the PA PUC to clinical studies in the journal Mediators of Inflammation Volume 2014, Article ID 924184, where researchers published their results regarding EHS.

In their clinical study “Metabolic and Genetic Screening of Electromagnetic Hypersensitive Subjects as a Feasible Tool for Diagnostics and Intervention” published as an open access article, they say,

Till now, no causal relationship between electromagnetic fields exposure and onset of clinical symptoms has been clearly proven. [….]

The profiles of metabolic parameters’ alteration observed in EHS subjects were comparable to those of the “pure MCS” group, though generally less pronounced (Figures 58). Similarly to those MCS patients self-reportedly nonelectrosensitive, the EHS cohort showed a highly significant-versus-control decrease in the erythrocyte GST activity and an increase in GPX activity levels (Figure 5), coupled with a marked decrease of GSH levels (Figure 6). [….]

A second parameter proved to be significantly different () between EHS and MCS groups that is the ratio omega-6/omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in the erythrocyte membrane phospholipid fraction (Figure 7(c)). [….]

Further developments must necessarily include a more objective and standardized classification of individual electromagnetic sensitivity scores, to conclusively assess the proposed parameters as a distinctive and specific panel of disease biomarkers for EHS. Our findings will hopefully contribute, in combination with the so-far putative genetic-risk factors, a better molecular definition of environmental-borne sensitivity-related illnesses and a tool to discriminate single SRI comorbidities, based on sufficiently proven molecular evidences able to gain clinical consensus.

Smart Meter technology is based on microwaves, which is damaging the health of Pennsylvanians; has to be corrected by the PA legislature and PA PUC, since it’s counter to and, undoubtedly, violates the Nuremberg Code, including the Third Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which states: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons…shall not be violated.”

Certainly, Pennsylvania’s children’s and adults’ health status is being compromised and violated 24/7/365 from EMFs, RFs, and the dirty electricity produced by Smart Meters.

Trans-Human Technologies: Plastic Antibodies, Organ Printing


An article was published in the interdisciplinary journal Langmuir titled, “Patterning of Antibodies Using Flexographic Printing,” which read like a chapter out of a science fiction novel:

Antibodies were patterned onto flexible plastic films using the flexographic printing process…Printing antibody features such as dots, squares, text, and fine lines were reproduced effectively. Furthermore, this process could be easily adapted for printing of other biological materials, including, but not limited to, enzymes, DNA, proteins, aptamers, and cells.[1]

This concept – and now reality – of creating plastic antibodies and associated (pseudo)biological components, to be used for “medicinal purposes” within the human organism, is technically a form of cybernetics; that is, the combining of artificial technologies and biological systems to create human-machine hybrids (i.e. cyborgs) with enhanced abilities.  While the trans-humanistic ethos which subtends this sort of cybernetic technology is, for lack of a better word, creepy, the successes of synthetic antibodies have recently been lauded in both the experimental literature and mainstream media, alike.

A 2010 study published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society titled, “Recognition, neutralization, and clearance of target peptides in the bloodstream of living mice by molecularly imprinted polymer nanoparticles: a plastic antibody,” reported on the ability of plastic antibodies to effectively neutralize a toxic peptide in the bloodstream of mice:

We report that simple, synthetic organic polymer nanoparticles (NPs) can capture and clear a target peptide toxin in the bloodstream of living mice. The protein-sized polymer nanoparticles, with a binding affinity and selectivity comparable to those of natural antibodies, were prepared by combining a functional monomer optimization strategy with molecular-imprinting nanoparticle synthesis. As a result of binding and removal of melittin by NPs in vivo, the mortality and peripheral toxic symptoms due to melittin [bee venom compound] were significantly diminished. In vivo imaging of the polymer nanoparticles (or”plastic antibodies”) established that the NPs accelerate clearance of the peptide from blood and accumulate in the liver. Coupled with their biocompatibility and nontoxic characteristics, plastic antibodies offer the potential for neutralizing a wide range of biomacromolecules in vivo.[2]

The unintended, adverse effects of injecting plastic antibodies into animals or humans in order to improve on, optimize or replace natural immune processes, are likely beyond our present ability to comprehend, but nonetheless immense. Plastic, after all, is a derivative of crude oil, and despite these exuberent researchers’ claim to the contrary lacks biocompatibility with most living systems (being xenobiotic), excluding rare forms of bacteria and fungi. Nevertheless, it is likely that if we continue to see positive reports such as this in the animal model, it will only be a matter of time until human clinical trials begin, and FDA approval becomes a very real possibility.

With the anticipated future adoption of artificial body parts and cellular components into mainstream medicine, we will also begin to see widespread implementation of organ printing. The technology uses modified inkjet printers, capable of rendering 3-dimensional living biological structures.

In 2011, a review published in the journal Current Opinion and Biotechnology titled, “Organic printing: from bioprinter to organ biofabrication line,” discussed the Frankenstein-like technology already in the developmental pipeline:

Organ printing, or the layer by layer additive robotic biofabrication of functional three-dimensional tissue and organ constructs using self-assembling tissue spheroid building blocks, is a rapidly emerging technology that promises to transform tissue engineering into a commercially successful biomedical industry. It is increasingly obvious that similar well-established industries implement automated robotic systems on the path to commercial translation and economic success. The use of robotic bioprinters alone however is not sufficient for the development of large industrial scale organ biofabrication. The design and development of a fully integrated organ biofabrication line is imperative for the commercial translation of organ printing technology. This paper presents recent progress and challenges in the development of the essential components of an organ biofabrication line.

Organ biofabrication is only one aspect of the increasingly God-like power the biotechnology industry is assuming for itself. We have already seen this industry unleash upon a good portion of the arable surface of the earth the irrevocable juggernaut of genetically modified organisms. Things did not seem like they could get much worse, until in 2010, the journal Science reported on the “Creation of a bacterial cell controlled by a chemically synthesized genome“:

We report the design, synthesis, and assembly of the 1.08-mega-base pair Mycoplasma mycoides JCVI-syn1.0 genome starting from digitized genome sequence information and its transplantation into a M. capricolum recipient cell to create new M. mycoides cells that are controlled only by the synthetic chromosome. The only DNA in the cells is the designed synthetic DNA sequence, including “watermark” sequences and other designed gene deletions and polymorphisms, and mutations acquired during the building process. The new cells have expected phenotypic properties and are capable of continuous self-replication.[3]

If cells themselves are now being created through the insertion of synthetic genomes, and these cells are capable of self-replication, and can be manipulated into forming tissue intended to be implanted into human beings, there is little doubt remaining that the myth of Frankenstein has found living and breathing expression in the form of today’s no less horrific incipient technologies. At what point do we call technology which intends to blend plastic and human systems together into a more perfect union by its proper name: trans-human, or dare we say, post-human?

The reality is that there are a wide array of natural methods to stimulate bodily regeneration, which are foods, spices and nutrients [view our recent article on the topic: 6 Bodily Tissues That Can Be Regenerated Through Nutrition] but which do not lend themselves to proprietary commodification within a medical system governed by economic forces and motives far more powerful than intellectual or moral ones.

America Is Charlie Sheen: The CDC Says There Are 20,000,000 New STD Cases In America Each Year


Charlie Sheen’s announcement that he is HIV positive has created a huge uproar as critics attack him from every direction, but the truth is that Charlie Sheen is simply a reflection of our society as a whole.  You see, the truth is that it isn’t just big Hollywood stars that are engaged in insanely risky sexual behavior.  According to the CDC, there are 110 million cases of sexually-transmitted disease in America today, and another 20 million STD cases are added to that total every year.  The United States has the highest STD infection rate in the entire industrialized world, and more than half of all Americans will have a sexually-transmitted disease at some point during their lives.  Approximately one out of every four teen girls in the U.S. has at least one sexually transmitted disease, and our nation spends $16,000,000,000 a year treating STDs.  So go ahead and point a finger at Charlie Sheen if you want, but just remember that he is only a very small part of a raging national epidemic.

Now don’t get me wrong – I am certainly not defending Charlie Sheen.  I am simply pointing out our hypocrisy.  We love to tear others down while not realizing our own faults.

On Tuesday morning, Charlie Sheen told the world that he is HIV positive.  The following is how USA Today announced the story…

Charlie Sheen is HIV positive, he told Matt Lauer during a much-touted exclusive Today show interview Tuesday morning.

The actor, whose drug use, rehab stints, legal issues, outbursts, on-set antics and many romantic entanglements have shaped his bad-boy image, confirmed the news, which had been swirling since Monday.

Of course Charlie Sheen is not being criticized for being HIV positive.  Rather, the reason why so many people are jumping on him is because he continued to have unprotected sex even after he learned that he had HIV

When Lauer asked Sheen if he had engaged in unprotected sex since his diagnosis, the actor responded in the affirmative. “The two people I did that with were under the care of my doctor and they were completely warned ahead of time.”

Talk about stupid.

And yet millions of other Americans are also running around having casual sex with people even after becoming infected with a sexually-transmitted disease.

For example, let’s take a look at chlamydia.  According to the CDC, last year we broke the all-time record for the number of new chlamydia cases reported…

Chlamydia cases had dipped in 2013, but last year’s total of more than 1.4 million — or 456 cases per 100,000 — was the highest number of annual cases of any condition ever reported to the CDC.

The chlamydia rate was up almost three percent from 2013, new figures revealed.

The CDC is also reporting that cases of gonorrhea and syphilis are rising as well

The CDC report revealed gonorrhea cases totaled 350,062, up five percent from 2013, and the most contagious forms of syphilis jumped 15 per cent to 20,000 cases.

What makes these numbers even more heartbreaking is the fact that our young people are being disproportionately hit by these diseases.

Of the 20 million new STD cases each year, Americans from the age of 15 to 24 account for about half of them.

This should not be happening.  We have dramatically failed our young people, and the numbers just keep getting worse.

But instead of changing course and trying to do things differently, our entire culture continues to promote casual sex.  As I wrote about just recently, the average American spends an average of 293 minutes a day watching television.  And these days it is hard to find any show on television that is not talking about sex, and sometimes the commercials are the worst.  I get so disgusted when I am trying to watch a football game and a Viagra commercial comes on.  The reason I get so disgusted is that I know that millions of little boys are watching the games along with their fathers, and these commercials are communicating things to them that they do not need to know yet.

We need to teach our young people that there are rules, and that there can be very serious consequences for breaking those rules.

Above, I wrote about the latest numbers for chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis, but there are other STDs that are raging out of control as well.  The following statistics for HBV, genital herpes and HPV come from the American Sexual Health Association

  • One out of 20 people in the United States will get infected with hepatitis B (HBV) some time during their lives. Hepatitis B is 100 times more infectious than HIV.
  • Approximately half of HBV infections are transmitted sexually. HBV is linked to chronic liver disease, including cirrhosis and liver cancer.
  • It is estimated that as many as one in five Americans have genital herpes, a lifelong (but manageable) infection, yet up to 90 percent of those with herpes are unaware they have it.
  • With more than 50 million adults in the US with genital herpes and up to 776,000 new infections each year, some estimates suggest that by 2025 up to 40% of all men and half of all women could be infected.
  • Over 14 million people acquire HPV each year, and by age 50, at least 80 percent of women will have acquired genital HPV infection. Most people with HPV do not develop symptoms.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that we have a massive problem in this country.

But we certainly don’t want to hear about “morality”, do we?

We don’t want it anywhere in our schools, in our courts, in our government or in our entertainment.

We just want to do whatever we want to do, but then we are shocked when we learn that there are very serious consequences for being so reckless.

This STD epidemic is going to continue to rage out of control until we find a solution.

So how do we solve this problem?

Is there any hope that things can be turned around?

Astounding Number Of Medical Procedures Have No Benefit, Even Harm – JAMA Study


medical procedure

What if millions of medical diagnoses, procedures, and treatments were based on, at best, questionable scientific evidence, but still performed daily, the world over, in the name of saving patients lives or reducing their suffering? A new JAMA review indicates this may be exactly what is happening. 

A concerning new review published in the Journal of the American Medical Association online ahead of print on the topic of overuse of medical care, i.e., health care for which “risk of harm exceeds its potential for benefit,” finds that many commonly employed medical procedures, to which millions are subjected to each year, are based on questionable if not also, in some cases, non-existent evidence.

According to the review, which was co-authored by researchers from some of the country’s most esteemed medical institutions, medical overuse can also be defined as a health care practice that patients would forego consenting to if fully informed. They elaborate further on the definition of medical overuse:

[Medical] Overuse encompasses overdiagnosis, which occurs when “individuals are diagnosed with conditions that will never cause symptoms,” and overtreatment, which is treatment targeting overdiagnosed disease or from which there is minimal or no benefit.”

Clearly, when information is lacking or withheld concerning the true risks and benefits of a medical procedure, the principle of informed consent is violated. And this is, no doubt, a far too common occurrence in today’s medical landscape where market forces rather than scientific evidence drive the medical consensus that determines the standard of care. In fact, there is reason to believe that the published biomedical literature is so corrupted by industry influence, and publication bias, that the entire ivory tower of ‘Evidence-Based Medicine,’ which Kelly Brogan, MD, recently described as a House of Cards, is actually based on nothing more than a coin’s flip worth of certainty.

But there is also the far more insidious problem of the misclassification and/or misunderstanding of disease which can mislead researchers, health care professionals, and their patients into performing and undergoing harmful procedures without anyone realizing the harmful and sometimes deadly consequences they have wrought.

For example, over the past eight years, we have identified what is essentially a vast, submerged iceberg of overdiagnosed and overtreated medical conditions, with the worst examples being common forms of breast, prostate, thyroid, and ovarian cancer. It was not until 2013 that the issue broke wide open, when a National Cancer Institute commissioned expert panel acknowledged that early-stage or ‘stage zero’ breast (DCIS) and prostate (HGPIN) “cancers” are actually benign or indolent lesions of epithelial origin and should never have been, and should never be, termed “carcinomas.” Essentially, the NCI report revealed that millions have been wrongly diagnosed and treated for breast and prostate cancers over the past few decades that they never had. In the case of DCIS, about 1.3 million U.S. women were subjected to some combination of either mastectomy, lumpectomy, radiation, and chemotherapy over the past 30 years, even though their screen-detected condition had no symptoms, and left untreated would likely never have caused them any harm. And this does not even account for the radiobiological harms caused by x-ray mammography, which may have planted the seeds of malignancy into the healthy breasts of millions of women in the name of “prevention through early detection.”

The new study, titled “Update on Medical Practices That Should Be Questioned in 2015,” reviewed 910 articles published in 2014, of which 440 directly addressed medical overuse. 104 of these were selected as “most relevant,” with the 10 most influential articles selected by author consensus, and forming the basis for their 10-topic critique, which is divided into three sections: overdiagnosis, overtreatment, and methods to avoid medical overuse.


  • Asymptomatic Carotid Stenosis: Colloquially known as “blocked or restricted arteries in the neck,” carotid artery stenosis often presents with no symptoms (asymptomatic), and yet is routinely treated with carotid angioplasty and stenting (placing a balloon or stent within the artery to open it) or surgical endarterectomy (removal of the inner lining of the artery and obstructive deposits found there) as “precautionary measures.” The review referenced a systematic review and meta-analysis by the US Preventive Services Task Force that found no studies providing data on whether screening for carotid stenosis reduced stroke. What was found is that carotid ultrasonography screening leads to many false-positives; a finding that I believe, contributes to increased morbidity and mortality in screened populations.

  • Screening Pelvic Examinations Are Inaccurate in Asymptomatic Women and Are Associated With Harms That Exceed Clinical Benefits. Pelvic examination is often included in annual preventive visits for women and usually consists of both visual examination and the insertion of the hand and instruments like a speculum in the vagina. This soft-tissue evaluation includes the upper genital tracts, as well as urethra, bladder, and rectum. Amazingly, a cited review found no studies assessing the effect of pelvic examinations on morbidity or mortality from cancers (including ovarian cancers) or benign gynecological conditions. Moreover, it was found that the harms of screening include “discomfort, anxiety, psychological effects, embarrassment, and unnecessary procedures, including surgery (1.4% [29 of 2000] of women in one study).”  The review opined strongly about the study implications: “Do not perform screening pelvic examinations. Clinicians should educate female patients about the low value of the examination. This review informed a new guideline from the American College of Physicians recommending against routine pelvic examinations for screening asymptomatic women.” Given the lack of evidence supporting pelvic examinations, could the practice be considered just another form of the violation of women by medical care providers, not unlike unnecessary C-sections?


  • Head Computed Tomography Is Often Ordered but Is Rarely Helpful: Computer tomography uses ionizing radiation and sometimes a contrasting agent in diagnosis, both of which have significant potential to cause adverse health effects. Often CT scans produce incidental, and clinically unimportant findings, and will lead to additional CT scans being ordered. The review concluded, “A second head CT scan rarely affects patient management. Clinicians should be judicious in ordering multiple CT scans in the same patient.” Consider also, that a study published in the NEJM in 2007 estimated that .4% of all cancers in the US may be attributable to CT scans!


  • Thyroid Cancer Is Massively Overdiagnosed, Leading to Concrete Harms: In the past 30 years, there has been a global increase in the implementation of thyroid cancer screening programs which have lead to dramatically increased rates of diagnosis of “thyroid cancer,” mostly due to papillary carcinomas, which are non-fatal.  Thyroid cancer mortality rates remained the same throughout this period, a clear indication of overdiagnosis, i.e. the thyroid lesions were non-cancerous insofar as they would have never caused harm if left untreated. The review cited a new study that reviewed the 15-fold increase in thyroid cancer in South Korean, from 1993 to 2011, concluding that, “Overdiagnosis of thyroid cancer is extremely common. The harms associated with this overtreatment include lifelong thyroid replacement, hypoparathyroidism, and vocal cord paralysis.” Learn more by reading my article, “Thyroid Cancer Epidemic Caused by Misinformation, Not Cancer.”

  • There Is No Benefit to Paracetamol or Acetaminophen for Acute Low Back Pain: Low back pain is one of the most common reasons why people seek medical attention, and acetaminophen/paracetamol (Tylenol) one of the most common treatments, but the study pointed out that in the first large double-blind RCT of Tylenol for back pain in patients without serious spinal pathology, the drug was not observed to be more beneficial the placebo group. The review concluded: “There is no benefit to acetaminophen or paracetamol use for acute back pain. Reassurance with advice on likely resolution may be the primary treatment for acute low back pain.” Also, consider that Tylenol has recently been found to have psychiatric adverse effects, such as the dulling of emotions, and is one of the most toxic chemicals to the liver known.


  • Postoperative Opioid Use Continues Past the Postoperative Period: Opioid drugs are often used for post-operative pain control. The review referenced a study that found 3% of patients continue to take opioid prescriptions beyond 90 days after the procedure. The review opined: “Clinicians should diligently reassess patients receiving postoperative opioids to ensure that these medications are used safely and appropriately because opioid overuse is associated with obvious psychological and physical harm. Given the millions of patients undergoing surgery each year, it is essential that postoperative opioid use does not become a gateway to long-term opioid use.”

  • The Harms of Perioperative Aspirin Outweigh the Benefits in Patients Undergoing Noncardiac Surgery: Aspirin use is common in the period before and after non-cardiac surgeries, even though its role in cardiovascular complications is not fully understood. According to a randomized, blinded trial comparing 200 mg/d of aspirin with a placebo during the 30-day periooperative peroid in 10,010 patients undergoing noncardiac surgery, one third of whom had vascular disease, that when the primary outcome of death or nonfatal heart attack were evaluated, there was no difference between groups (although the frequency of major bleeding was higher in the aspirin group). The study’s implications were described: “Do not treat patients undergoing noncardiac surgery with aspirin during the perioperative period unless they have had stent implantation in the past year because harms may occur and there is no benefit. In patients with an indication for aspirin independent of surgery, restart aspirin use after the perioperative period, although optimal timing is not clear.” Learn more about aspirin’s harmful nature by reading, “The Evidence Against Aspirin and For Natural Alternatives.”

  • Renal Artery Revascularization for Renal Artery Stenosis (RAS) Has No Clinical Benefit: a common occurrence in aging population are vascular disease including stenosis of the renal artery. A meta-analysis of 8 studies on the topic found renal artery stenting in combination with medical therapy was not superior to medical therapy alone in reducing mortality, congestive heart failure, stroke, or worsening renal function. The implications of this research were summarized as follows: “Do not perform renal artery revascularization in patients with clinically relevant RAS. Furthermore, testing for RAS has little benefit. Consistent randomized evidence shows that optimizing medical therapy is the best approach to management of hypertension and chronic kidney disease, with or without RAS.”

  • Medications to Raise High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol Level Do Not Improve Cardiovascular Outcomes: There is some evidence that low HDL-C levels are associated with an increase risk of cardiovascular events. A meta-analysis of drug interventions for raising HDL< which included niacin, fibrates, and cholesteryl ester transfer protein inhibitors, found none of these drug classes improved cardiovascular morltaity, all-cause mortality, or stroke compared with controls.  The study’s implications were summarized as follows: “In patients with low HDL-C levels who are treated with statins, there is no clinical benefit to HDL-C–targeted therapies.”

Methods to Avoid Overuse

  • Most Diagnoses Are Based on History and Physical Examination, and Conservative Management Is Valuable: There are 400 million annual office visits in the U.S. alone. At least 50% of the time, people go to see their doctor for physical symptoms (a symptom-based paradigm). In juxtaposition, the era of screening has lead many physicians to take a disease-based view, diagnosing patients without symptoms with problems because of suspicious laboratory findings or lesions (a disease-based paradigm). The review discovered that about one-third of patient symptoms don’t match up with identifiable disease, and that “Approximately 73% (range, 56%-94%) of diagnoses are based on the history and an additional 4% to 17% on the physical examination. There is considerable overlap between physical and psychological symptoms, and approximately 75% (range, 71%-79%) of symptoms improved in weeks to months.” They stated their finding’s implications as follows: “Be cautious in using diagnostic tests to identify disease without high pretest probability because most disease can be diagnosed with a thoughtful history and skillful physical examination. Clinicians managing patient symptoms without obvious cause should be aware that physical and psychological symptoms co-occur, should recognize that most symptoms resolve within a few weeks to months, and should consider that serious causes of symptoms rarely emerge during long-term follow-up.”

The review concluded that based on research emerging in 2014 alone, there are a diverse number of practices from various areas of medicine that indicate medical overuse is rampant, where the harms of diagnosis or treatment clearly outweigh the benefits.

They commented further on the implications of their research:

Published literature documenting overuse may benefit patients and populations if it stimulates decisions to avoid overused diagnostics and therapeutics. It is difficult to stop using commonly used tests and treatments.20 Explicit recognition that practices shown to be ineffective often continue to be performed has resulted in a focus on methods of deadoption or deimplemention. These approaches incorporate strategies from behavioral economics, such as framing patient discussions around what is available and having guarded enthusiasm about new medical care that is at risk for later being deadopted because of ineffectiveness.20 Health care professionals are well suited to improve these practices at multiple steps when providing patient care, as described by Kroenke.19

Clinicians and patients share the consequences and responsibility for medical overuse. With improved awareness, caution around new tests and treatments, and deimplementation of ineffective practices, there should be improvement in patient outcomes, safety, and satisfaction along with reductions in health care spending. With thoughtful questioning, many current practices that seem logical but are without evidence may be reconsidered and incorporated into a less dogmatic and more patient-centered approach to care.

Reviews like this indicate that many of the most commonly accepted and proffered procedures in modern medicine may be causing more harm than good. Perhaps we need to heed the sage advice of Samuel Shem, who once wrote: “The delivery of good medical care is to do as much nothing as possible.” To learn more, read my recent article on the topic, “Good Medicine: Do As Much Nothing As Possible.”

True Healing: Beyond “Managing”, “Treating” And “Curing” A Disease

true healing

True healing and true health are deep concepts which by their very definition imply oneness and unity (the word heal is etymologically derived from various words such as the Old English hælan meaning “to make whole”). True healing includes the many levels within you beyond just the physical – the integration of the emotional, sexual, mental, spiritual and other selves or layers. True healing is far beyond just “managing”, “treating” and “curing” disease, which Big Pharma and its lapdog the FDA like to focus so exclusively upon. Western medicine has its place in society as an excellent tool for specialized surgical or other emergency interventions – however it came into being from the Rockefeller-Big Pharma cartel, whose business model thrives on repeat customers who can’t get off the hamster wheel of drug after drug after drug. On a deeper level, is it really any wonder that Western medicine can’t deliver true healing, when its approach is narrow and materialistic, rather than broad and holistic – when it’s fixated on managing, treating and curing, rather than healing?

Big Pharma and Western Medicine: Hooked on “Treating” Disease

Hooked on “treating” disease, but not going any further.

Hooked on “treating” disease, but not going any further.

If you’re wondering where the notion of “treating” come from, look no further than the FDA-mandated disclaimer that many natural health and holistic practitioners and companies are forced to use on their products. It states that “this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease” because only a drug can legally make such a claim. And, in a great example of FDA circular logic, if a substance does have an effect on the human body such as preventing or curing a disease – then it must be drug and not a food!

Guess what? The moment something becomes a drug and not a food, it’s regulated differently. If you’re a producer of a food that wants to state its natural effects on the body, now you have to jump through all sorts of expensive hoops just to state the truth. This is despite the fact that scientific studies have shown, for instance, that cherries have a positive effect on gout and arthritis, coconut oil on Alzheimer’s, and turmeric, spirulinagraviola/soursop on cancer. It is an upside-down, outrageous situation where people are being silent about the clear and scientifically provable effects of foods and other natural medicines out of fear of being sued into poverty, taken down or taken out. Ignorant people defend the Big Pharma system by claiming it’s backed by “science”; meanwhile, insiders and experts state categorically that most scientific research is fraudulent, and most science is actually corporate junk science that is paid to produce the results its funders want.

Managing Disease: A Big Pharma Specialty

True healing has nothing to do with disease management, Big Pharma style.

True healing has nothing to do with disease management, Big Pharma style.

The truth is that managing disease is a Big Pharma specialty. The most profitable customers are those patients who are going to be reliant on prescription drugs – just to exist – for the rest of their lives. In those cases it’s all about managing disease. How interesting that the word itself management is a very corporate word. Another aspect of the managing of disease is all the unnecessary (but very fancy and impressive sounding) testing that is done to people, under the guise of “early detection”. In his revealing book Confessions of a Medical Heretic, Dr. Robert Mendolsohn quotes an article entitled “Cleveland’s Marvelous Medical Factory” which boasted of the Cleveland Clinic’s “accomplishments last year: 2,980 open-heart operations, 1.3 million laboratory tests, 73,320 electrocardiograms, 7,770 full-body x-ray scans, 24,368 surgical procedures.”

Seems wonderful … except for the very obvious point that none of these procedures has been proven to have anything to do with restoring health or true healing. When people get screened for a disease, they are being subjected to dangerous radiation (more money for the Rockefellers) which harms tissue and can end up causing the exact disease it is supposed to be protecting against – as happens daily with the mammogram scam, designed to drum up new breast cancer clients.

Healing vs. Curing

Healing vs curing: there is a difference. Healing takes into account the energetic and holographic nature of our body and reality.

Healing vs curing: there is a difference. Healing takes into account the energetic and holographic nature of our body and reality.

At this stage you may be thinking: well, Big Pharma and Western medicine do a lot of “managing” and “treating”, but aren’t they also in the business of “curing”? Yes – but even in this case, Western medicine is falling short of the ultimate goal of healing. Curing a disease and healing a disease are different things. As this website Healing Through The Arts states:

Curing is what medical science attempts to do through medication, treatment and external intervention. It usually is the result of a series of treatments that hopefully lead to an event – the absence of disease.

Healing is an internal process you do for yourself. Healing restores the balance and harmony to the body, mind and spirit. It can be done without a cure. Healing activities are essential when the negative influences of illness, loss or life changes encompass your life.”

The website MindBodyGreen states:

Curing is a restoration of health, an absence of symptoms, and a remedy of disease. Healing, on the other hand, is a restoration of wholeness — not the level of wholeness before the diagnosis, but a restoration of wholeness that is new, different, and comparatively better than before the onset of disease. Healing is not the removal or cessation of symptoms, but rather an integrative process that transcends the physical and includes mental, emotional, and spiritual vitality and wellness.”

Others have defined curing as the “elimination of all evidence of disease” and healing as “becoming whole”. There are many ways to conceive and verbalize the difference between curing and healing, but the overall point is that healing is a deeper concept which includes the understanding that we are not just physical beings. If we want to attain true health, we must address all the levels of our being. Often a “disease” is merely an outer physical manifestation of a psychological, energetic or spiritual blockage which is taking place at a much deeper level.

Deep down, we all want true healing.

Deep down, we all want true healing.

Big Pharma has (rightly) been accused of making drugs that just mask symptoms without healing the underling cause. In many cases, they transfer the disease or imbalance from one part of the body to another. From a holistic perspective, this is only minorly helpful or not helpful at all, because as long as you have some imbalance, you’ve still got a health problem you have to deal with. So, even if Big Pharma actually cures your disease, rather than just treating it or managing it, you still aren’t really at a place of true healing, or real health and balance. If the cause of your disease is happening on an energetic level, how can drugs, surgery or radiation ever address it?

Towards True Healing

In conclusion, if you want true healing, look at all aspects of your entire life. Are you indulging in negative thought patterns? Are you involved in toxic relationships? Are you getting the right type, frequency and duration of exercise? Are you sleeping well? Is your lifestyle too sedentary? Are you allowing questionable food items into your diet? How are you dealing with stress? Even if you are doing a good job on most of these, being weak in one of these areas may be enough to throw your system off balance and lead to disease. We’re all on a journey of remembering our true selves, and reclaiming our wholeness through true healing is an inseparable part of it.

Florida Health Freedom Under Attack: New Bill (SB 646) Threatens Vaccine Exemptions; Forces Gov. Tracking Of Records

 florida health freedom

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) just released critically important information on Florida bill SB 646, which aggressively undermines health freedom by greatly restricting medical and religious vaccine exemptions, as well as expanding forced government tracking of private citizen’s confidential vaccination records.

Please share this news release with others and act now to send a clear message that we will not support unconstitutional restrictions against our health freedom.

It will only take a few minutes of your time to make a call to express your opposition, and each such effort could make a world of difference! 

Join the Facebook group, formerly “Floridians Opposed to SB 646,” now Floridians for Health Freedom, to organize with other activists. 

Latest Update (11/05/15) : The Bill Has Been WITHDRAWN by Senator Alan Hays!


Effective Date: 7/1/2016
Last Action: 11/6/2015 Senate – Withdrawn prior to introduction
Location: Withdrawn from consideration

NVIC Press Release (Updated: 11/05/15) Dear Florida NVIC Advocacy Team Members,

We are requesting your communication with your state legislators as soon as possible to OPPOSE SB 646 sponsored by Senator Hays (R) District 11.

This terrible bill has just been filed and it significantly restricts medical and religious vaccine exemptions, it expands and forces participation in a vaccine tracking system, and it requires public posting of vaccination exemption rates for individual schools.  It is a major attack on families who don’t agree with all doses of all required vaccines. SB 646 needs to be strongly opposed.

The Florida legislature is in attendance in a special session on redistricting until this Friday November 6th so there is a small window of opportunity where legislators are in their offices for you to show strong opposition to this bill to prevent the bill from getting co-sponsors and eventual committee hearings once session starts on January 12th.  This bill needs to be killed and we need to come out strong with everyone in Florida contacting their legislators IMMEDIATELY to tell them to oppose SB 646 and do NOT become a co-sponsor.


1)  CALL, EMAIL, and FAX your Florida State Senator and Representative and ask them to OPPOSE SB 646.  Tell them DO NOT become a co-sponsor (see talking points below)If you do not know who your Florida State Senator and Representative are or their contact information, you can login to the NVIC Advocacy Portal, click on the “State Teams” tab and then “My State,” and your elected officials are automatically posted on the right hand side of the page You can also use this search engines below tofind your Florida legislators.

2)  Contact Governor Rick Scott and ask him to OPPOSE SB 646. Tell him you need his support to maintaining religious belief and medical exemptions to mandatory vaccinations as they are and to oppose any effort, like SB 646 to restrict these exemptions. Governor Scottcall (850) 717-9337.

3)  Contact Senator Alan Hays, primary author of SB 646 by email, phone, fax, or Facebook at ask him to withdraw SB 646!  You can refer to the talking points below.

4)  Login to the NVIC Advocacy Portal often to check for updates. Bills can change many times over the legislative process. Please forward this email to family and friends and ask them to register for the NVIC Advocacy Portal and share their concerns with their legislators as well.

Talking Points:

[Include your return address so they can see you are in their district, and start by introducing yourself and identifying yourself as a constituent] 

I urge you to OPPOSE SB 646 which significantly restricts religious belief and medical exemptions to vaccine requirements and expands forced government tracking of private citizens’ confidential medical vaccination records.  It is very important to my family that you do NOT co-sponsor this bill.

[Explain PERSONALLY why it is important to your family to be able to delay or decline vaccination using the religious belief or medical exemption.  Incorporate any stories of vaccine reactions, harassment, or vaccine failure to personalize your communication.]

SB 646,, should be opposed because it:

Adds new forced vaccine tracking requirements for all children including those with vaccine exemptions:

Page 2, lines 48-53: Before the 2017-2018 school year, each child must have a vaccine record on file of their vaccination status for all required vaccines with the State Health Online Tracking System, or Florida SHOTS. The Department of Health has free reign in their rules how to implement this should it pass. 

Page 3, lines 65-66: SB 646 requires the Religious Exemption to be recorded in the vaccine tracking system SHOTS by Department of Health personnel.

Nobody should be forced to have their private confidential medical vaccination records or exemptions tracked by their government.  This should be an OPT-IN system for those families wanting this service.  Families who are capable of keeping track of their own children’s records with their doctor or who claim a vaccine exemption should NOT be forced to be in a centralized government surveillance and enforcement database.

Forces new restrictions on the religious exemption:

Page 2, line 58 – Page 3 line 66: Before receiving a religious exemption, SB 646 adds the additional requirement that the parent or guardian must review a video provided by the Department of Health on vaccines and diseases. The video will be made by the Department of Health in collaboration with the Florida Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Neither of these organizations are religious organizations nor do they adequately acknowledge legitimate vaccine risks and contraindications. Their forced insertion into personal religious decisions would be an inappropriate action of the Florida legislature. This is not about vaccine education, it is about harassment, discrimination and hurdles placed in front of someone with different religious beliefs not agreeable to those who push forced vaccination. The AAP has a policy statement against religious and other non-medical exemptions, and pediatricians profit from giving vaccines so this creates a complete conflict of interest.

Page 5, lines120-123. Religious exemptions are further restricted by creating the new requirement that they expire after only two years.

This is harassment and unnecessary.  People don’t change their religious beliefs every two years and vaccines are always available to those who want them.

Restricts the medical exemption:

Page 3, lines 69-80:  Restricts the permanent medical exemption to: “A child who has been diagnosed with T cell or combined T and B cell immunodeficiency, has been diagnosed with any other immunodeficiency for which live virus vaccines are contraindicated, or is undergoing a solid organ or bone marrow transplant and should be permanently exempt from the required immunization” or a reason determined by The Department of Health.

Current law allows a physician to write a permanent medical exemption. Instead of allowing a physician to decide what is best for his/her patient, the bill author is attempting to limit medical exemptions to this narrow window along with arbitrary determinations by the Department of Health. There are many valid reasons why an individual patient is medically contraindicated to receive one or more vaccines that will fall outside of these limited reasons.  The legislature should not stand between the patient and their personal doctor to decide what is best for the patient – one size does NOT fit all.

Page 2, line 87 – Page 3, line 92:Before receiving any medical exemption, SB 646 adds the additional requirement that the parent or guardian must review a video while in the physician’s office provided by the Department of Health on vaccines and diseases.

If a doctor and their patient have determined a person should be medically exempt from vaccination, having to watch a video made with the input of a trade association whose members profit from and support forced vaccination is nothing but harassment and discrimination.

Page 5, lines120-123: All medical exemptions are further restricted by creating the new requirement that they expire after only two years.

This is bureaucratic harassment wasting parents’ time and money.  The doctor and the child’s parents should be the only ones deciding how long the medical exemption applies, not the legislature.

Requires the exemption rates of all individual schools to be disclosed online

Page 5, lines 124-130: Requires the Health Department and all public and private schools to post the school’s vaccine exemption rates on their websites.

This is not about health.  It is a documented political strategy to instigate a HOSTILE community environment against those using vaccine exemptions.  SB 656 provides useless information in schools because overall vaccine exemption numbers don’t tell what type of vaccine the exemption is for. An exemption form is used whether it is for one dose of one shot or all doses.  This bill perpetuates the myth that high vaccination rates guarantee immunity. Vaccines fail and wane, and people vaccinated with live viral vaccines shed the virus and can spread disease.  This bill gives parents of immune compromised kids the false sense of security that a school with high vaccination rates and low exemption rates is a safe environment for their kids.  This is not only FALSE, it is dangerous.

Drugged Into Oblivion: Nearly 60 Percent Of All U.S. Adults Are On Prescription Drugs


If you have a health problem, even if it is just an imaginary one, some giant pharmaceutical company out there is probably making a pill for it.  According to shocking new research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, 59 percent of all U.S. adults are on at least one prescription drug, and 15 percent of all U.S. adults are on at least five prescription drugs.  These numbers have never been higher, and they tell us that the United States is the most drugged nation on the entire planet.  And it turns out that pushing these drugs on the American people is extremely profitable.  For instance, Americans spent 100 billion dollars on cancer drugs alone last year.  That isn’t “million” with an “m” – that is “billion” with a “b”.  The profits that some of these pharmaceutical companies are making are absolutely obscene, and it is our pain and suffering that is making them rich.

So why is prescription drug use rising so rapidly?  As noted above, 15 percent of us are now taking 5 or more of these drugs on a regular basis, but back in 1999 that number was sitting at just 8.2 percent.

This newly released report blames much of the problem on obesity

The population is getting older, but that doesn’t explain it, Kantor said. The pattern looks more related to obesity, which is steadily rising, More than two-thirds of the adult U.S. population is overweight or obese, and many suffer the heart disease, diabetes and other metabolic disorders that go along with being too heavy.

And without a doubt, we have an epidemic of obesity in the United States.  The following facts on American obesity come from from my recent article entitled “America #1? 36 Facts That Prove That The United States Is An ‘Exceptional’ Nation“…

#1 According to a brand new report that was just released by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the United States has the fattest population in the entire industrialized world by a wide margin.

#2 That same report from the OECD also found that we are number one in child obesity.  In fact, at 38 percent our rate of childhood obesity is even higher than our overall rate of obesity.

#3 According to USA Today, the obesity rate in the United States has more than doubled over the past 25 years.

But the truth is that obesity is only part of the story.  Drug use of all types is soaring, and commercials for the latest and greatest drugs seem to run around the clock on virtually every television network.  Here are some more specific numbers from this newly released report

In the study, blood pressure drugs were among the most prescribed, increasing from 20% of adults in 1999-2000 to 27% in 2011-2012.

Statins increased from 6.9% to 17%; antidepressants increased from 6.8% 13%; antidiabetic drugs increased from 4.6% to 8.2%;and tranquilizers and sedatives increased from 4.2% to 6.1%.

The increase in the use of antidepressants really disturbs me.  They are often prescribed needlessly, and they can have some extremely negative side effects.

In particular, I think that it is important to mention that nearly every single mass shooter in the United States in recent years has been on antidepressants.  The mainstream media never talks about this connection because the pharmaceutical companies purchase gobs of advertising time from them.  But the reality of the matter is that these drugs can cause people to behave in extremely irrational ways.  Even the Mayo Clinic admits this

Most antidepressants are generally safe, but the Food and Drug Administration requires that all antidepressants carry black box warnings, the strictest warnings for prescriptions. In some cases, children, teenagers and young adults under 25 may have an increase in suicidal thoughts or behavior when taking antidepressants, especially in the first few weeks after starting or when the dose is changed.

Of course that is a very watered down version of the truth, and if you start seriously digging into this you will soon discover a whole host of absolutely horrifying stories.

But the pharmaceutical companies are never going to stop what they are doing, because it is making them exceedingly wealthy.  As I mentioned above, Americans spent 100 billion dollars on cancer drugs last year, and the big drug firms love milking cancer patients for all that they are worth.  According to NBC News, two of the latest cancer drugs that have been developed “are priced at $12,500 a month“.

How do executives at those companies sleep at night?

They are getting rich from price gouging cancer patients.

How disgraceful is that?

Here are some more statistics about the drugging of America that come from one of my previous articles

According to the CDC, approximately 9 out of every 10 Americans that are at least 60 years old say that they have taken at least one prescription drug within the last month.

There is an unintentional drug overdose death in the United States every 19 minutes.

In the United States today, prescription painkillers kill more Americans than heroin and cocaine combined.

According to the CDC, approximately three quarters of a million people a year are rushed to emergency rooms in the United States because of adverse reactions to pharmaceutical drugs.

The percentage of women taking antidepressants in America is higher than in any other country in the world.

Children in the United States are three times more likely to be prescribed antidepressants as children in Europe are.

A shocking Government Accountability Office report discovered that approximately one-third of all foster children in the United States are on at least one psychiatric drug.

A survey conducted for the National Institute on Drug Abuse found that more than 15 percent of all U.S. high school seniors abuse prescription drugs.

Many of these antidepressants contain warnings that “suicidal thoughts” are one of the side effects that should be expected.  The suicide rate for Americans between the ages of 35 and 64 rose by close to 30 percent between 1999 and 2010.  The number of Americans that are killed by suicide now exceeds the number of Americans that die as a result of car accidents every year.

So what is your take on all of this?

Do you have any prescription drug horror stories to share?

The Modern Physician: A Glorified Applied Phamacologist?


I snapped this picture on the way to the grocery store the other day, and was struck by how perfectly the ‘thousand words’ it spoke matched up with my opinion on what people should do if ever they are tempted to visit a pharmacy for anything other than necessary items, such as a nail file or diapers, namely: STOP!

Why am I so repugnant to the concept of frequenting these dispensary institutions? The fact that they not only sell cigarettes, but feature them at the front counter, forcing those who may actually need a pill or two to hobble all the way to the back to fetch them, figures somewhere into my sentiment.  The fact that they are proliferating like metastatic nodules in any area with a population sufficiently sick and/or over-medicated enough to support one (and sometimes two!) on each and every block, has something to do with the way I feel as well.

But are the pharmacies really to blame? They largely fill orders placed by…

The Modern Day Physician: A Glorified, Applied Pharmacologist

Ok, so we have billions of pounds of synthetic chemicals consumed every year as patented drugs, with an army of degreed, licensed and doctored foot soldiers prescribing them recklessly under the once great banner of “medicine,” in an ongoing war against the body’s virtually infinite capability to generate symptoms, most of which are – ironically – attempts to heal from acute or chronic exposure to synthetic chemicals.

This situation didn’t happen overnight, mind you. Over 250 years ago, Voltaire penned these words, which still ring so true today:

Doctors are men who prescribe medicines of which they know little, to cure diseases of which they know less, in human beings of whom they know nothing. — Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire (1760)

Really, the modern day physician has transmogrified into a technician of the body-as-machine (a 500 year old, dead “Cartesian” concept, mind you), and is practicing what can best be described as a glorified form of applied pharmacology.

While administering xenobiotic chemicals to people is a valid discipline, with life-saving potential in extreme cases where a poison is needed to whack an over-stimulated system back away from the edge of self-destruction (which is why mercury and lead were used as medicines in ancient times, as well), applied pharmacology is not medicine, which is to say a discipline concerned with the healing of the body, or better yet, facilitating bodily self-healing; nor is the doctor any longer an educator, rather, more a well-paid appendage of the global fine chemicals, biologics and pharmaceuticals industries, directing the secretion of their product in such a way as to maximize profit, limit liability, and suppress the patient symptoms without (hopefully) killing them in the process.

So, where does that leave us? The amorphous, unlicensed, non-expert, mass of lay-persons, who by virtue of bodily incarnation will at some point or another need to address and/or resolve a symptom of disease, but who do not have the wherewithal, or even a legal right to make treatment decisions for themselves, (e.g. medical marijuana) or their loved ones (e.g. mandatory vaccines & chemotherapy).

The Physician As The Priest of the Body

Most of us, either from the moment of birth (usually in a hospital, and not the ideal way: at home with a midwife), or from infanthood onward, are enculturated to perceive the medical doctor as the “priest of the body,” solely capable and legally empowered to determine the course of life and death, both in times of health and mortal illness. Indeed, the original meaning of the word doctor comes from “Church father” (medieval French) or “religious teacher” (Latin), and still today, they elicit an unquestioning faith in their authority that defies reason, especially considering how many patients they kill from correctly prescribed medicine each year — 106,000 a year, according to a 1998 meta-analysis published in JAMA.

The modern-day drug-based medical dictatorship and its overarching power structure has a cult-like hold on those who take its two most lauded sacraments: the pharmakeia (Greek word behind pharmaceutical meaning “pill, potion, charm, sorcery, sacrifice, poison”), and ritual vaccinations.

I believe the best way to break the spell is by using the holy grail of the conventional medical model itself, namely: the peer-reviewed, published “scientific evidence,” and particularly those studies which support natural approaches to disease prevention and treatment; and by using that information, both to inform our choices, as well as defend them when they are under intellectual or regulatory assault., we can continue to choose foods, spices, herbs, fresh air, exercise, good company, laughter, etc. as our health care without the specter of scientism or medical monotheism forcing us into its drug- and injection-based model of compulsory treatment.

Utilize The Research You’ve Already Paid For exists primarily in order to index, aggregate and disseminate the positive findings on natural – farm-acological – substances that can be found within the ocean of research produced by the biomedical research and publishing industries, whose primary funding sources are Big Pharma, and its handmaiden, world governments, who are increasingly co-opted by billions of dollars of lobbying money, and who are now populated by an army of their former executives, business employees and partners.

World governments, in fact, have even underwritten the risks associated with the countless vaccine-associated injuries that occur every year by virtually eliminating the liabilities of the manufacturers, and those public and private organizations that aggressively promote their use; this, despite the glaring lack of evidence for their purported effectiveness. Private insurers know the epidemic of vaccine-associated injuries is so extensive (e.g. autism) that they stand to lose everything for betting on that horse.

So, considering that YOU have paid for the research, both through government taxation, and the exorbitantly high drug mark-ups (cancer drugs may be as high as 500,000% from cost) that increasingly defraud the public both of their health and their wealth, it is only fitting that you take ownership of it.  In the mad rush to find “lead compounds” from natural sources in order to develop patented, synthetic analogues, Big Pharma has generated – inadvertently – a mountain of evidence supporting the value, if not also the superiority of natural substances vis-à-vis their would-be drug equivalents.

Take our cancer research page, as an example. We have indexed 2600 studies straight from the public domain (NLM’s Medline) on the anti-cancer activity of over 600 natural substances. Remarkably, some of these have potent activity against drug and multi-drug resistant cancers and cancer stem-cells, which are at the root of why modern chemotherapy and radiation treatments not only fail but cause greater malignancy post-treatment.

Were any of these compounds patentable, they would likely have received attention, and some the requisite 800+ million dollars of funding needed to produce the multi-phased human clinical trials the FDA requires before considering drug approval. The fact that the MONEY, and not the intrinsic potential of  a substance to heal, determines whether it will be brought to market, that is, be used to alleviate the suffering of the sick, is a disturbing fact.

Ultimately, it is to our gardens, our spice racks and local markets that we must go to obtain, maintain and sustain our health. We hope that the 19,000 study abstracts on our site, which are available for everyone to view in their entirety, will encourage people to see that farmaceuticals and not (p)harmaceuticals are the future of medicine, if there is to be a future to medicine. Please share the research housed on with others in need, so our work will not have been performed in vain. Also, if you have not already, please take a look at our turmeric research below for a better understanding of what our project is all about…

Who Has More Rights . . . Dogs or People? (VIDEO)

People or Dogs?

You would think that the answer to the question “Who has more rights . . . Dogs or People?” would be an easy one.  Perhaps, in the not so distant past, it was . . . yet not today.  As of this hour, the two seem to have equal rights . . . perhaps even the dog having greater . . . after all, we have all been outraged over a report, once every ten years or so, of a sack full of puppies being drowned in a lake, yet what about the 110,000 human babies thrown into medical waste bins throughout the world each and every day ?

Though this article is not about this subject, my point is that a dog is an animal and a piece of property.  As such, when it comes to getting its vaccinations, it has no choice.  It is FORCED to receive these inoculations, as it has no choice as an animal and a piece of property.  In this week’s episode of CONSPIRACY CORNER NEWS, I have forced myself to write, yet again, about the surprisingly accepted practice of treating human beings as animals and property of the government, which obviously, is no longer “OF the People, BY the People, and FOR the People.

Do You Believe In “Medical Conspiracy Theories”?

medical secrets

Do you believe in “medical conspiracy theories”? If so you are in good company.

According to a survey undertaken by professors at the University of Chicago, more than half of all Americans believe in one or more so-called “medical conspiracy theories”. Of course, most of us know that the derogatory term “conspiracy theory” is simply a way to marginalize those who think critically instead of blithely accepting the word of those who stand to make money off of our compliance.

The survey was a series of statements. The respondents could choose from the following answers: Heard Before, Agree, Neither Agree nor Disagree, or Disagree.

  • The Food and Drug Administration is deliberately preventing the public from getting natural cures for cancer and other diseases because of pressure from drug companies.
  • Health officials know that cell phones cause cancer but are doing nothing to stop it because large corporations won’t let them.
  • The CIA deliberately infected large numbers of African-Americans with HIV under the guise of a hepatitis inoculation program.
  • The global dissemination of genetically modified food by Monsanto is part of a secret program, called Agenda 21, launched by the Rockefeller and Ford foundations to shrink the world’s population.
  • Doctors and the government still want to vaccinate children even though they know these vaccines cause autism and other psychological disorders.
  • Public water fluoridation is really just a secret way for chemical companies to dump the dangerous byproducts of phosphate mines into the environment.

If you are anything like me, you probably read those statements and nodded, while adding your own mental notes about how most of them don’t go far enough…for example, there is no mention of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation in that depopulation statement.  Water is fluoridated to dumb down and sedate the population.  Each of those statements by themselves could be the basis of an entire research project.

According to J. Eric Oliver, the lead author, the belief in these theories shows that people who can’t grasp the science find these theories easier to comprehend. (Bless their poor ignorant hearts.)

“Science in general – medicine in particular – is complicated and cognitively challenging because you have to carry around a lot of uncertainty,” Oliver said.

“To talk about epidemiology and probability theories is difficult to understand as opposed to ‘if you put this substance in your body, it’s going to be bad,’” he said. (source)

An article on Reuters Health breaks down the findings.

For the new study, he and his colleague used data from 1,351 adults who answered an online survey between August and September 2013. The data were then weighted to represent the U.S. population.

The participants read six popular medical conspiracy theories and then indicated whether they had heard of them and whether they agreed or disagreed with them.

Like the theories about conspiracies to infect African Americans with HIV and to prevent citizens from accessing alternative medicines, the other theories on the list had mistrust of government and large organizations as themes.

They include the theory that the government knows cell phones cause cancer but does nothing about it, that genetically modified organisms are being used to shrink the world’s population, that routine vaccinations cause autism and that water fluoridation is a way for companies to dump dangerous chemicals into the environment.

Some 49 percent of the survey participants agreed with at least one of the conspiracies.

In fact, in addition to the 37 percent of respondents who fully agreed that U.S. regulators are suppressing access to natural cures, less than a third were willing to say they actively disagreed with the theory.

With regard to the theory that childhood vaccines cause psychological disorders like autism and the government knows it, 69 percent had heard the idea, 20 percent agreed with it and 44 percent disagreed.

The only conspiracy theory with which more than half of the respondents disagreed was that a U.S. spy agency infected a large number of African Americans with HIV. (source)

The researchers used the results of the survey to predict health behaviors on the part of the “conspiracy theory” believers. Rightfully, those of us who believe that the government, Big Pharma, and the AMA don’t have our best interests at heart are far more likely to seek natural options, question treatment protocols, and not fall into line, bleating in compliance. In one example, of those who did not believe in any of the so-called “conspiracy theories”, only 13% used herbal supplements. Of those who believed in three or more of the statements, 35% took herbal supplements.

The author of the study believes these findings can be used by doctors to aid in communication (i.e., approach these types of ignorant patients with a different type of propaganda.)

Instead of viewing patients who believe in conspiracy theories as crazy, he said doctors should realize those patients may be less likely to follow a prescription regimen.

“It’s important to increase information about health and science to the public,” he said. “I think scientific thinking is not a very intuitive way to see the world. For people who don’t have a lot of education, it’s relatively easy to reject the scientific way of thinking about things.”  (source)

By referring to these beliefs as “conspiracy theories,” this survey starts out with a bias against those who look at the medical establishment critically, instead of embracing every golden word that drips from the doctor’s mouth. The so-called results paint those who regard the establishment with suspicion as ignorant, superstitious fools that need to be carefully handled and manipulated by the doctors. This only serves to boost the “God complex” that many physicians already have.

The next time you find yourself in a medical waiting room, it’s important to understand that if you have an anti-establishment point of view some physicians will see your outlook as a problem to be managed.  Patients may find themselves subjected to pressure regarding anything from a flu shot to a course of treatment for mental health that might reliably be dealt with via good nutrition.

  • Be alert to attempts to manipulate you into accepting a course of treatment you might otherwise disagree with.
  • Take the time to do your own research before having things injected into your body or before swallowing pills just because the doctor said so.
  • Don’t be afraid to seek a second opinion.
  • Before it even gets to this point, establish a relationship with a naturopath or other holistic practitioner.  He or she may be able to recommend a doctor who is receptive to this point of view in the event you need a prescription for antibiotics, etc.
  • Be confident in decisions you have already made, such as the choice not to vaccinate your children.
  • If the doctor is trying to persuade you to agree to a specific course of action, ask for something to read over so that you can make your decision without being pressured.
  • There is no reason in the course of a standard office visit you need to agree with something on the spot.

You have the ultimate right to make decisions for yourself and your family. Members of the medical establishment only have the authority you allow them to have.

4th Grader Paralyzed After The Flu Shot – But You Should Still Get One


In what the medical system is treating as a mystery, a 4th-grade student in Texas has suddenly become paralyzed, incontinent, and is losing her vision. Formerly a perfectly healthy child, 9 year old Breanna Browning has been a frequent flyer in the emergency room over the past few weeks.

The potential triggering event? On October 15th,  she was given the flu shot at school.

Her mother, Brenda Faulk, said, “Eight hours later she was profusely vomiting and again Friday morning. Saturday, she was paralyzed from the waist down, blind and seemed like she had a seizure.”

The doctors claim to be stymied, but have finally provided the family with a diagnosis: Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM). The National Institute of Health says, “Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is characterized by a brief but widespread attack of inflammation in the brain and spinal cord that damages myelin – the protective covering of nerve fibers.”

While no medical personnel have confirmed the cause of Breanna’s ADEM, the causes listed by the NIH are as follows:

ADEM often follows viral or bacterial infections, or less often, vaccination for measles, mumps, or rubella.

Breanna is not expected to make a full recovery. On a GoFundMe page set up for the family, her aunt wrote:

Breanna received a Flu vaccine Thursday October 15th 2015. This vaccine attacked her body to the point that she was transported by Ambulance to John Sealy Hospital in Galveston, Texas Saturday October 17th in critical condition.

ADEM has attacked 2 areas of her spinal cord, brain and neurological system. This has left Breanna paralyzed from the waist down, poor vision/blindness, & incontinence. She remains in Pediatric ICU.

This will require Breanna to be in a very extensive Rehabilitation Therapy. Doctors say her recovery could take up to one year and will not completely recover. Her Dad & Mom were also told, that this disease will more than likely attack again….  Several test were ran and her white blood count was/is very high.  Her MRI was confirmed that it is definitely ADEM. This little girl was full of life and very active. And just to think that a simple vaccination that is required did this to her.

This family will suffer enormous medical costs and will probably never get confirmation from the system that the shot Breanna was required to receive is what caused the little girl to become paralyzed, partially blind, and incontinent. If you are in a position to help, go HERE to make a donation.

But you’re still advised to get a flu shot

In a stroke of incredible audacity, articles in the mainstream media about Breanna’s case still strongly recommend that people be sure to get their flu shots. That’s right. In the same article about a child who was “mysteriously” paralyzed after the flu shot, the media and medical system collude to tell you it’s perfectly safe. If you believe that it’s perfectly safe, you need to go back and reread the story about what happened to this child.

Here’s some of the doubletalk.


Annual flu shots are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control for anyone over the age of 6-months. The only people who should not receive a shot are those with egg allergies or who have had adverse reactions before.

Dr. Umair Shah advises that flu shots are usually extremely safe. Although reactions do happen, they are usually mild.

“There are a lot of myths that are out there,” the Executive Director of Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services stated to KTRK.


The Centers for Disease Control recommends people over the age of 6 months get a flu shot every year. Only those with egg allergies or who have had a previous reaction should not.

“There are a lot of myths that are out there,” said Dr. Umair Shah, the Executive Director of Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services.

He says flu shots are extremely safe. There can be reactions but he stresses they are mostly mild.

“There are some cases, very rare, that a flu shot has a more severe reaction and those reactions are minor in terms of the number of people who are going to get those,” Shah added.

On Fox:

Dr. Umair Shah, the executive director of Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services, has not treated Brianna, but says flu shots are extremely safe and encourages those over 6 months to get the vaccine. Reactions can occur, but they are mostly mild. There have been cases of more severe reactions, but those are rare.

How does this guy even have a license? How can someone see stories like this (which the medical system refuses to confirm) and think getting their child injected is worth the risk?

This isn’t a tiny bit of discomfort we’re talking about.

This little girl is paralyzed from the waist down. She’s incontinent. She’s partially blind. And before the shot, she was fine.

But…Isn’t the Shot the Best Way to Prevent Catching the Flu?

You will hear in about 10,971 variations that “The best way to prevent catching the flu is to receive your annual flu shot.”

This is actually untrue. In fact, last year, the CDC admitted that it hardly worked.

Influenza viral characterization data indicates that 48% of the influenza A (H3N2) viruses collected and analyzed in the United States from October 1 through November 22, 2014 were antigenically “like” the 2014-2015 influenza A (H3N2) vaccine component, but that 52% were antigenically different (drifted) from the H3N2 vaccine virus . In past seasons during which predominant circulating influenza viruses have been antigenically drifted, decreased vaccine effectiveness has been observed. However, vaccination has been found to provide some protection against drifted viruses. Though reduced, this cross-protection might reduce the likelihood of severe outcomes such as hospitalization and death. In addition, vaccination will offer protection against circulating influenza strains that have not undergone significant antigenic drift from the vaccine viruses (such as influenza A (H1N1) and B viruses). (source)

The absolute, number one way to avoid catching the flu is through the exercise of good personal hygiene.

  1. Wash your hands frequently when you are out.
  2. In public restrooms, use a paper towel to open bathroom doors and turn on taps.
  3. Although I’m normally not a big fan of hand sanitizer, I always carry it with me in my purse during flu season. I use it generously when I’m out, before and after touching things that everyone else has been touching, like the handle of the shopping cart, door knobs, and debit machines.
  4. Use sanitizing wipes or at least baby wipes) to wash your hands and wipe the steering wheel when you get back into your vehicle.
  5. Avoid touching your face – this welcomes germs that are on your hands into your body.
  6. During the height of flu season, consider taking a quick shower and changing clothes when you return home, particularly if you have been in a germ-ridden place like a doctor’s office or pharmacy. Or Wal-Mart – every time I go there, I see loads of sick people sneezing and coughing into their hands, then touching items on the shelves.
  7. Make sure the kids change clothes and  thoroughly wash their hands when they return home from school.
  8. I shouldn’t really have to say this, but….remember to wash your hands after using the bathroom and before preparing or eating food.

If your local area is being hit hard by the flu, practice avoidance measures to keep your family healthy.

9.  Stay home as much as possible. (Obviously, if you have work and school outside the home, this become more difficult, but you can still avoid malls, movie theaters, and sporting events for the duration of the epidemic.)
10.  Stay away from sick people if you can.
11.  Avoid eating at restaurants – you don’t know the health or hygiene habits of the kitchen staff.

If someone in your family gets sick, take steps to minimize the spread of the illness.

12.  If you or a family member become sick, stay home from work or school to prevent passing it on to others.

13.  If a family member is sick, keep them isolated from the rest of the family.

14.  Use disinfecting wipes to clean surfaces that the sick person touches – doorknobs, TV remotes, keyboards, toilet handles, and phones.

15. Immediately place dishes and flatware used by the sick person into hot, soapy dishwater with a drop of bleach in it.

16.  Teach children to cough into the crook of their arm instead of covering their mouth with their hands. This prevents their hands from being germ catchalls that transfer contagious matter to everything they touch.

17.  Have the sick person wash their hands frequently with soap and water to help prevent spreading germs through physical contact. If soap and water are unavailable, have them use hand sanitizer.

Some other ways to stay healthy are to use natural strategies to maximize your immune system.

18.  Drink lots of water to keep your system hydrated and efficient.

19.  Take a high quality, organic multi-vitamin. (I like this one)

20.  Take at least 3000-5000 IUs of Vitamin D3 daily – research has shown a link between a Vitamin D deficit and susceptibility to the flu. (This one has 5000 IUs)

21. Other important immune-boosting vitamins are Vitamin C and Zinc. Most vitamin C is genetically modified, so be especially carefully to find a non-GMO vitamin C. TheseZinc Lozenges are good tasting and high quality.

21.  Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables (preferably organic and pesticide free).

22.  Get 7-9 hours of sleep per day – a tired body has a weaker immunity against viruses.

23.  Don’t smoke – this weakens your resistance against respiratory illnesses and worsens the effect on your body if you do become ill.

24.  Avoid or limit alcoholic beverages.

25.  Avoid or limit processed foods. Your body doesn’t recognize these as food and they do nothing to nourish you.

26. Get fresh air and sunshine as often as possible – your body absorbs Vitamin D from the sun’s rays.

27. Get at least 20 minutes of exercise a day. You don’t have to be training for a marathon – simply take the dog for a quick walk and you’ll improve your cardiac function, your circulation, and your respiratory function.

28. Choose personal care and cleaning products that don’t contain harmful chemicals. When you inhale the toxins into your lungs or absorb them through your skin, they can break down mucosal surfaces, making you more susceptible to germs and viruses.

29. Maintain a healthy body weight.

30. Try to reduce the stress in your life. When we are highly stressed,we’re far more likely to succumb to illness. This is because adrenaline and cortisol, in the long term, can drain your immune system, making it unable to fight off a cold or flu efficiently. Check out this natural product to help with stress and anxiety

If Cannabis Can Kill “Incurable” Brain Cancer, Why Is It Criminalized? (VIDEO)


Cannabis contains a compound that may kill brain cancers that chemotherapy and radiation can’t touch, so why isn’t it being used today? 

In recent years, we’ve focused heavily on educating our readers about the still relatively unknown role that cancer stem cells play in cancer, both in terms of conventional cancer treatment failure and the exceptionally promising role that natural interventions play in targeting these highly malignant cells.

It is encouraging to witness a growing awareness that cancer has been completely misunderstood, and that in order to make progress against the global epidemic we will have to go back to the wisdom of the ancients by using foods and spices instead of toxic chemicals and radiation to fight a disease that should be classified more as a survival mechanism unmasked than an inexorably lethal, genetically-driven condition. Even the National Cancer Institute now admits that it had been wrong for decades about “early stage” breast (DCIS) and prostate (HGPIN) “cancers,” and that they should be reclassified as indolent or benign lesions of epithelial origin, i.e. not “cancer” at all! Essentially, therefore, millions were overdiagnosed and overtreated for cancers they never had. Even now, despite this admission, the vast majority of conventional doctors have yet to account for, acknowledge, or integrate this radically different definition of cancer and its implications for treatment into their “standard of care.”

Only last week, we featured a new review on natural therapies that target cancer stem cells, many of which included common foods and spices. You can view it here. But one substance conspicuously absent from the list was cannabis, which is the herb we now turn to to give it a fair representation in the context of this topic.


A recent article published in the Journal Neuroimmune Pharmacology titled, “The Antitumor Activity of Plant-Derived Non-Psychoactive Cannabinoids,” reviewed the therapeutic potential of a non-psychoactive class of phytochemicals found in cannabis known as cannabinoids. Unlike THC, cannabinoids do not activate the cannabinoid 1 and cannabinoid 2 receptors in the central nervous system in any significant way, making their activity less controversial as they do not produce changes in perception and sensation associated with “recreational” and/or “psychedelic” drugs. There are actually over 60 cannabinoids in cannabis, but the second most abundant one, cannabidiol (CBD), has been found to inhibit and/or kill a wide range of cancers in the animal model, including gliobastoma (a difficult-to-treat type of brain cancer), breast, lung, prostate, and colon cancer. There have been a wide range of mechanisms identified behind these observed anti-tumor activities, including anti-angiogenic (preventing new blood vessel formation), anti-metastatic, anti-cell viability, but the one we wish to focus on in this report is its ability to to inhibit the stem-like potential of cancer cells.

Stem cells are unique within the body as they are capable of continual self-renewal, theoretically making them immortal relative to regular body cells (somatic cells), which die after a fixed number or replication cycles. In their normal state of function they are essential for healing and bodily regeneration, as they are capable of differentiating into the wide range of cells that make up the body and need to be regularly replaced when damaged.


This so-called pluripotent property of stem cells is also observed in tumor formation and maintenance, as cancer stem cells are capable of producing the entire range of different cells that make up a tumor colony. Unlike regular tumor cells, cancer stem cells are uniquely tumorigenic because they are capable of breaking off from an existing lesion or tumor and forming a new tumor colony of cells. In this sense, they are “mother cells” at the heart of cancer malignancy, whose ability to colonize other tissues by producing all the “daughter cells” necessary to form a new tumor make their existence highly concerning from the perspective of cancer prevention and treatment. Radiation and chemotherapy, while capable of reducing the size of a tumor, actually enrich the post-treatment residual lesion or tumor with higher levels of cancer stem cells, and in some cases transform non-cancer stem cells into cancer stem cells, ultimately making the post-treatment state of the treated tissue far worse than its pre-treatment condition. This is why identifying and using natural, safe, effective and affordable ways to target cancer stem cells versus the non-tumorigenic tumor cells in a lesion or tumor is the only rational way to treat cancer, and should be the primary focus of present day cancer treatment approaches.

The new review discussed the way that cannabidiol targets and/or inhibits the cancer stem cell subpopulation in cancers such as the highly treatment-resistant form of brain cancer known as glioblastoma, which is widely considered by conventional medicine as “incurable.” A 2013 study,1 mentioned in the review, found that patient-derived glioblastoma cells when exposed to cannabidiol saw a significant down-regulation of the genetic tumor marker Id-1, which has been closely correlated with brain cancer cell invasiveness. They also found that cannabidiol was capable of inhibiting neurosphere formation (a sign of cancer stem cell tumor formation), as well as was capable of inhibiting glioblastoma tumor invasiveness in an animal model.

The results of this preclinical study were so compelling that the researchers concluded cannibidiol might make an ideal adjunct treatment:

With its lack of systemic toxicity and psychoactivity, cannabidiol is an ideal candidate agent in this regard and may prove useful in combination with front-line agents for the treatment of patients with aggressive and high-grade glioblastoma tumors.

Integrative approaches often focus on using natural interventions as “adjuncts” to conventional, inherently toxic approaches like chemotherapy and radiation, we believe that another possibility exists, namely, that cannabidiol in combination with a wide range of other natural substances studied for targeting glioblastoma is more effective (and certainly far safer) than a combination approach. To view other anti-glioblastoma substances, view our database on the subject.

Another highly relevant study published in 2007 titled, “Cannabinoids induce glioma stem-like cell differentiation and inhibit gliomagenesis,”2 found that cannabinoids target the stem-like properties of glioma cells, encouraging their differentiation into functioning, non-tumorigenic cells, and inhibiting the dysregulated increased production of glioma cells.

A more recent 2015 study,3 found that glioblastoma cells treated with cannabidiol inhibited their self-renewal by down-regulating “critical stem cell maintenance and growth regulators.”

Another study, published last month, found that cannabidiol inhibits glioma stem-like proliferation by inducing autophagy, a natural form of programmed cell death.4

Consider, finally, that the cancer stem cell targeting and killing properties of cannabidiol are only one of a wide range of potential mechanisms through which cannabis as a whole plant, comprised of hundreds of different phytochemicals and phytonutrients, can treat cancer. We have indexed hundreds of studies on cannabis’ therapeutic properties, a good subset concerning its ability to prevent, kill, or regress a wide range of different cancer types. You can view them all on our cannabis research database.

Research on cannabis and brain cancer has only just begun, but considering the abject failure if not also sheer violence of conventional approaches, waiting for sufficient quantities of Pharma or government capital to flow in the direction of a non-patentable substance already saddled with archaic laws in some cases criminalizing its possession is a no win proposition. Anecdotes of healing with cannabis are not uncommon. One such report can be viewed on our colleague Dr. Jeffrey Dach’s website, titled, “Cannabis Oil Brain Tumor Remission,” demonstrating just how powerful cannabis and its cannabinoids may be for accomplishing what conventional approaches can not. Last year, we reported on a similar case of temporary remission in childhood leukemia using cannabis extract. Also, consider reports like this one, where a woman clearly being victimized by conventional medicine was able to replace 40 different medications through using raw cannabis juice.

The short of it is that the future of medicine, if it is to continue to advertise itself to be concerned with alleviating human suffering and being guided by “evidence,” must incorporate this safe, time-tested, affordable and effective healing agent into its standard of care. Failing to do so will not de-validate cannabis, rather, but the medical system itself. One might ask, if cannabis can treat “incurable” brain cancers, and is safer and more effective than chemotherapy and radiation, shouldn’t withholding it or information about its healing properties be considered criminal? Instead we still live in a time and age where simply possessing it or using it is in some jurisdictions classified as a criminal offense of dire if not irreparable consequence to our civil liberties. Perhaps we are at a critical turning point now and the aforementioned research will lead us all forward to a more enlightened medical ethos that respects the right of a patient to choose his or her treatment as long as it does no harm to others.

Drug Industry Banditry


US drug and biotech companies are licensed to steal, bottom line priorities their sole interest, public welfare be damned.

Big Pharma is hated for good reason. Its member companies charge the way MBA students are taught – according to what the market will bear. Grab all you can – with full government support, profits over people. It’s the American way.

Illicit drug traffickers look good by comparison. Big Pharma rips off every dollar possible. Their practices are unrestrained unless or until consumers vote with their pocket books, choose alternate products whenever possible or none when they’re not needed, many times the case.

Pill-popping is a national addiction. Got an ache, pain or emotional distress? Get a prescription. Use freely. Consumers know little or nothing about potential harmful drug side effects, especially when taken longterm. Whenever possible avoid them. Use only as prescribed as needed, when alternate remedies won’t work.

The American Medical Association and likeminded groups are hugely anti-consumer. They deplore natural/alternative choices – challenging their monopoly grip on US medical practice. The corporate run FDA operates the same way.

In 1987, US District Court Judge Susan Getzendanner ruled against the AMA and 10 co-defendants for participating in a conspiracy against chiropractors, finding them guilty of violating federal anti-trust laws.

Western medicine is hooked on drugs – heavily influenced by Big Pharma funding. The AMA and other medical associations depend on it. Medical education features drug use.

Some products advertised in medical journals, consumer publications and television are potentially extremely harmful to health. Solve one problem. Create a greater one. Yet these drugs are frequently prescribed – why patients always need to use their own best judgment.

Sometimes the best treatment is none at all. Good nutritional practices, avoiding GMOs and junk foods, along with daily exercise comprise a marvelous prescription for good health.

When illness strikes, drugs often are essential. Then there’s no choice. Still, good judgment  always applies. Doctors prioritizing patients’ health, with their best interest in mind, are crucially important.

In my senior years, I’m grateful for wonderful medical providers I’d be lost without – competent, caring and thorough professionals, prescribing only what’s needed in minimum doses for effectiveness, monitoring for results and potential problems, adjusting treatments accordingly.

Seniors are most vulnerable to health problems. Aging takes its toll. Medicare is extremely important, worker/employer funded insurance, enacted in July 1965 to provide retirees, the disabled, and end-stage renal disease patients with free healthcare.

Things didn’t work out this way. Costs are rising, benefits declining. My so-called “free” healthcare is enormously expensive – out-of-pocket expenses rising annually, increasingly unaffordable for millions of retirees.

Medicare Part D drug coverage is a kafkaesque scheme scamming seniors – passed by Congress in the middle of the night after members initially rejected it. Heavy Big Pharma and AARP lobby pressure along with bribes made the difference, costing consumers billions of dollars annually.

Enactment showed the industry’s enormous clout, empowering drug companies to charge top dollar because Washington won’t negotiate lower prices the way many other societies operate.

Healthcare is a fundamental human right. In 1996, addressing the Medical Committee for Human Rights convention, Martin Luther King said “(o)f all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhuman.” Universal coverage alone works equitably for everyone.

Americans are forced to pay more than double per capita for healthcare, compared to consumers in other developed countries, a national disgrace because Washington is beholden to Big Pharma, insurers and large hospital chains.

Their interests alone matter, public welfare be damned, why Ralph Nader calls Obamacare mandated healthcare “a pay or die system.”

The World Health Organization ranks America 37th in delivering healthcare for its people – behind EU countries, Japan, Singapore, Iceland, several Middle East nations, Canada and Costa Rica, among many others – a shocking indictment of a failed system in the world’s richest country, proper healthcare unaffordable for growing millions, low income households harmed most.

Contrast Cuba’s system to America’s. Article 50 of its Constitution mandates universal coverage for all its citizens, guaranteed by the state. Everything related to healthcare is free, a model program, caring for sick and injured people in need.

Venezuela operates the same way, what all just societies should do. Healthcare isn’t a commodity. It’s a fundamental human right. The same holds for education. Not in America, a nation run on the ability to pay, affordability be damned.

Public Citizen exposed the scam of Big Pharma R & D costs. The industry claims it needs high prices to fund research for new drugs. Actual costs are a small fraction of hyped higher figures.

Taxpayer funded research covers most costs for many leading drugs. The industry is America’s most profitable – as a percent of sales, around threefold higher than other businesses.

Far more is spent on advertising and marketing than R & D. Price gouging is scandalous. In 2014, spending for medications in America was an astonishing $374 billion.

Turing Pharmaceuticals is Exhibit A – overnight increasing the price of its Daraprim malaria/AIDS associated opportunistic infection medication from $12.50 to $750 per pill, a 5,000% hike.

Other industry bandits operate the same way. Rodelis Therapeutics raised the cost of its Cycloserine med from $15 to $360 a pill. Mass outrage forced it to rescind the hike, a rare exception proving the rule. A topical med I need is about 500% more expensive than a few years ago. Thankfully, my dermatologist found a much less expensive substitute.

Drug bandits do what they please, fully supported by Washington, doing nothing to curb their abuses.

Big Pharma leads all other industries in price gouging. Grand theft is prioritized. Unaffordability for growing millions means needless pain and suffering – for some, early death.

A Handy Solution To Every Pending Mandatory Vaccination Program


Mandatory vaccination bills are sweeping the US right now, with this HealthImpactNews report that 15 US states are trying in one way or another to force vaccines on the public and squash people’s right to decide what kind of medical treatment they want – and to have sole domain and authority over what goes into their bodies. The mandatory vaccination program is really an assault on bodily sovereignty. It is the State saying,” You don’t know what’s best for you – we do. You don’t own your body – we do.” It is completely unacceptable from a purely rights-and-freedom-based perspective, even if vaccines were the greatest medical intervention ever – and they are a long, long, long way from this, as can be seen by their inclusion of toxic adjuvants, fetal tissue from aborted cells lines and their propensity to lead to viral shedding and contagion in those who take them.

The Mandatory Vaccination Agenda – Full Steam Ahead

Mandatory vaccination is being pushed harder than ever right now.

Mandatory vaccination is being pushed harder than ever right now.

The mandatory vaccination agenda is well underway in the US (it is also happening in other first world countries like Australia, since this is a global agenda). California became the first state in the US to introduce mandatory vaccinations for both children and adults with bills SB277 and SB792. The scheme to impose mandatory vaccination is attacking the individual’s right to medical freedom from all angles – with attempts to limit both philosophical exemptions and religious exemptions. The following states are trying to restrict or eliminate philosophical objections to vaccines, as HealthImpactNews reports:

“Hearings to remove philosophical/conscientious exemptions to vaccine mandates have already taken place in Washington and Oregon.  California, Maine, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Vermont all have bills already filed or press announcements of bills about to be filed to remove philosophical/conscientious exemptions.  Maine, Minnesota and Texas have bills to substantially restrict philosophical/conscientious exemptions.”

The following states are trying to restrict or eliminate religious objections to vaccines:

“Religious exemptions are also under attack. Maryland, New Jersey, Texas and Vermont have bills filed or announced to eliminate religious exemptions, and Illinois, New Mexico and Texas have bills filed or announced to unconstitutionally restrict religious exemptions.”

All in all, there are 15 states trying to push mandatory vaccination!:

“Fifteen states have bills filed to expand vaccine mandates. These include Connecticut, Florida, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia.”

A Mandatory Vaccine Solution: Have Your Doctor Sign This

Dealing with mandatory vaccination? Have your doctor sign a letter vouching for the safety of the vaccine – and taking legal responsibility if the vaccine damages you in any way. If he or she refuses to sign, refuse the vaccine and make the story public.

Dealing with mandatory vaccination? Have your doctor sign a letter vouching for the safety of the vaccine – and taking legal responsibility if the vaccine damages you in any way. If he or she refuses to sign, refuse the vaccine and make the story public.

One way to defeat this kind of outrageous medical tyranny is to assert your rights in a non-violent, yet lawful and effective way – by ensuring that the purveyors of the system take individual responsibility for their actions. Yes, we know the Rockefeller-controlled Big Pharma cartel has bribed and blackmailed its way to getting a fair amount of legal immunity against its toxic products; however that doesn’t mean that you can’t demand legal accountability from your individual doctor, nurse or any other administering healthcare practitioner trying to inject you with a vaccine. Here is a sample form you could present:

“By signing this form below, I, __(insert name of healthcare practitioner)__, do hereby affirm and attest all of the following:

a. that I have fully researched the ingredients and effects of this vaccine that I am about to administer;

b. that I am aware that vaccines generally contain numerous scientifically proven carcinogens and toxins, including but not limited to aluminum, ammonium sulfate, animal cells, antibiotics (made from GMOs), formaldehyde, human diploid cells (originating from human aborted fetal tissue), MSG, peanut oil #65, phenoxyethanol (antifreeze), squalene and thimerosal (mercury);

c. that I have taken the following steps to ensure my patient’s safety in the light of said toxic adjuvants:

List of Steps Taken  _____________________________________




d. that I am aware that in the past many people were infected with cancer from the polio vaccines which were spiked with SV-40 (Simian Virus 40);

e. that I am aware that vaccines have been proven to have been used as a method of sterilizing people in 3rd world nations, as well as poor or disadvantaged citizens in 1st world nations;

f. that I am sufficiently confident in the safety of this vaccine that I am willing to professionally, ethically and legally vouch for it;

g. that if any bodily damage or injury arises in the patient due to him/her taking this vaccine, I will personally assume full legal liability for this, including but not limited to coverage of the financial costs of providing healthcare to manage, treat and cure this damage or injury, plus any punitive legal damages.

Signed:   _________________

Date:       _________________”

What are the chances you will get ANY healthcare practitioner to sign it?

Conclusion: If They Don’t Sign the Form, What is That Saying?

Regardless of the threat of these types of state-wide or nation-wide mandatory vaccination legislation, there is still power at the local level. You still have the power in your individual situation to make the doctor to take full legal liability – or else stop unethically forcing you to accept a mandatory vaccination. If they won’t sign it then that suggests that they are unwilling to personally stand behind something they are injecting into your body – which obviously leads to the conclusion that the vaccine is not so safe after all.

If you are in a situation where you are being penalized by this (e.g. not being admitted into school), you could threaten to go public about this fact and cause all the “authorities” concerned a PR nightmare. Chances are they will drop the mandatory vaccination requirement in your case, quietly admit you into school and hope you never bring it up again.

70% Of Patients Using Antidepressants Do Not Meet Criteria


(The Real Agenda) A new study published in the Journals of Clinical Psychiatry has concluded that, among sampled patients, almost 70% of them make unnecessary use of antidepressant medications.

According to the publication, “many individuals who are prescribed and use antidepressant medications may not have met criteria for mental disorders.” The study explains that data collected during the study show that antidepressant medication are used often without having clear evidence that the patient presents symptoms of depression.

The study says that among antidepressant users two-thirds never met the criteria that must be fulfilled during diagnosis for them to be using such pharmaceuticals.

Additionally, 38% of those people who participated in the study never met criteria for “Major Depressive Disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, social phobia, or generalized anxiety disorder in their lifetime.”

The study states that facts such as being female, Caucasian, recently suffering from physical problems and recent visits to mental health facilities were some of the reasons why two-thirds of patients began using medications to treat depression and other alleged mental health disorders.

“Using data from the Baltimore Epidemiologic Catchment Area (ECA) Study Wave 1 (1981) through Wave 4 (2004–2005) (N = 1,071), we assessed lifetime prevalence of common mood and anxiety disorders according to DSM-III and DSM-III-R criteria, based on 4 interviews, among participants who reported current antidepressant use. Furthermore, we examined factors associated with current antidepressant use.”

Along with this new study, earlier examination of antidepression medication use showed not only that patients do not present any sign of depression, but also that they never had such signs in the past. “We examined the prevalence of mental disorders, assessed prospectively over multiple interviews, among individuals currently using antidepressants in a community sample,” explains the author of the study.

An Ignored Document Reveals Whats About To Hit U.S. Shores. You’ll Be Floored! (VIDEO)

healthcare system

“The burden of the uninsured immigrant is huge. It’s exploded the amount of work [hospitals] have to do.” Jeff Spade, vice president of the North Carolina Hospital Association says

We don’t have to look very far to see the effects mass immigration has had on our health care system. We only have to look to Germany and a report put out in 2009 that reveals some shocking information about what’s about to happen here in America.

In the video below I delve through a report from 2009 titled The Sinking Lifeguard Report on Uncontrolled Immigration and the US Health Care System and how it proves we’re about to embark on some major problems at our local hospitals. Furthermore I look to Europe and specifically Germany, where they have allowed tens of thousands of refugees in their borders and prove the massive devastation now impacting the country. Plus a shocking letter from a German physician surfaces that will floor even the non-believer! If truth be told this is a MAJOR, MAJOR ALERT for all people living in America, the globalists are implementing their plan and it starts with immigration explosion and leads to depopulation.

Here is the IMPERATIVE report you can not afford to miss….

“Because emergency rooms must treat patients regardless of their ability to pay, high rates of uninsured patients can spell financial disaster for hospitals. The cost of caring for these patients is absorbed by the counties or hospitals obligated to provide treatment, and some is passed on to insured patients. The average added cost an insured individual pays to cover treatment of the uninsured has been put at $370 a year, while for a family it is an additional $1,000 a year.” (The Sinking Lifeboat Report pg. 8)

If those where the results of Immigration influx in 2009, imagine what they will be going forward… We’re in Big TROUBLE!!!!

Laughing Abortionists ‘Pull Out Baby Hearts After Abortion, Just For Fun. It’s Cute’ (VIDEOS)

Planned Parenthood Video
By: Steve Watson, |

Admits they “strive” to extract “intact” heads to sell.

An eleventh undercover video was released Tuesday by the Center For Medical Progress, again capturing officials at Planned Parenthood admitting to selling aborted body parts, and laughing about it.

This time an abortion doctor for Planned Parenthood in Austin, Texas, discusses harvesting the “intact” heads of late term aborted babies for research.

“My aim is usually to get the specimens out pretty intact,” the doctor, Amna Dermish, tells the actors posing as potential fetal tissue buyers.

Dermish also admits that she sometimes alters the abortion procedure in an effort to preserve the fetus for harvesting.

She states that she sometimes uses ultrasound guidance to convert a 2nd-trimester fetus to a feet-first breech presentation: “Especially the 20-weekers are a lot harder versus the 18-weekers, so at that point I’ll switch to breech.” Dermish states.

The use of the technique means that the fetus is in many cases still living when extracted. It is identical to partial-birth abortion procedures, which were banned by Congress years ago.

When asked by the reporters about harvesting fetal brains, Dermish laughs and tells them “I haven’t been able to do that yet… This will give me something to strive for!”

Dermish also discusses the value of fetal body parts, affirming the reporter’s declaration that the usual price is $50 or $60 per specimen. Again, it is illegal to buy or sell human fetal tissue.

Dermish also describes the brutal technicalities of carrying out the abortion while attempting to keep the fetus intact in order to sell it on to researchers.

“It was trunk intact, so usually what I do, if it’s a breech presentation, I’ll remove the extremities first, the lower extremities, and then go for the spine and sort of bring it down that way,” Dermish notes.

“I always try to keep the trunk intact,” she continues. “Always trying to aim for the spine to bring it down. It just makes the procedure easier.”

“One of our POC persons is really into organ development,” she adds, noting “She’ll pull out kidneys, and heart and like heart we frequently see at nine weeks and she always looks for it… just for fun.”

Again laughing about the gory procedure for some bizarre reason, the Whole Woman’s Health official with Dermish states “It’s cute.”

Pro-life advocates reacted to the latest video with horror.

“Less than 4 miles away from the Texas state capitol, Planned Parenthood routinely practices barbaric partial-birth abortions on living, late-term fetuses,” CMP head David Daleiden said of the video.

“Planned Parenthood’s crimes are not just the result of local bad actors, but are tolerated and even encouraged at the highest levels of the national organization. State-level criminal investigations must press charges, and Congress’ new select committee must pursue a deep and comprehensive accounting of Planned Parenthood’s atrocities against humanity.” Daleiden added.

Also commenting on the new video, Representative Marsha Blackburn, who is leading the panel investigating Planned Parenthood, expressed disbelief and disgust.

“Is this how babies should be treated? To be harvested for their heads?” said Blackburn. “As a grandmother, each video absolutely breaks my heart. But we now have a select panel that will examine the sale of baby body parts. As I’ve said before, this is going to be an information based, fact-finding endeavor to bring all the facts into the light of day as we work to protect the dignity of human life.”
