OIL COMPANY CHEMICALLY LADEN FRACKING WATER USED ON YOUR CALIFORNIA VEGGIES...

Abby Auffant, spokeswoman for oil giant Chevron, explained that crude comes out of the ground mixed with water, from which it must be separated.

Separating the water from the crude is a process that actually benefits oil firms, according to Stano.

"It's hard for the oil industry to get rid of, so it's a win-win for the oil companies" when they are able to sell the water, she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That may be one reason cancer rates are increasing in California as the process by which oil is separated from water is to create clean oil, not necessarily clean water, and exposure to petroleum compounds is a known cause of cancer.

The other day we ran a story about rampant food fraud enabled by the fact that the FDA only inspects 1% of all food imports.

So how does government react to foreign food imports that contain dangerous chemicals, or California produce soaked with oil well runoff? We are already seeing growing efforts to ban labels on food identifying their place of origin, so that consumers cannot avoid foods from known problem sources! After all, profits are far more important than people, and if you get sick, that stimulates the economy by forcing you to go to the hospital!

We blame the sick for being expensive': The mother whose baby cost AOL $1 million

After AOL’s CEO told employees he was cutting retirement benefits partly because of the cost of Deanna Fei’s ‘distressed baby’, the mother fought back

Deanna Fei is not a healthcare expert. She is also not a privacy expert. According to her, she is just a mom – a mom forced to defend the decision to save her daughter’s life.

Fei came into national spotlight in February 2014 when Tim Armstrong, AOL’s CEO, sparked an nationwide debate about healthcare and privacy when he told employees that he was cutting their retirement benefits because of Obamacare and costs associated with two “distressed babies” born to the tech company’s employees. One of those babies was Fei’s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What we are most probably going to see as a legal requirement for women who want to work in large corporate structures, in the not too distant future, is a doctor's signed statement that they have been sterilized before they are permitted to work for those large corporations, so as not to be a strain on the bottom line.

Liberia works hard to contain Ebola, determine source of new cases

Liberia is working hard to contain Ebola and find the source of the latest infections of the deadly virus recorded this week.

The West African country previously succeeded in containing the outbreak, despite being initially the hardest hit with more than 4,800 deaths. The last recorded case before this latest emergence was on March 20, according to the World Health Organization.

U.S. Jails Lone Vaccine Researcher, While Fraud Remains Epidemic: “Perhaps Half May Simply Be Untrue”

The seriousness of fraudulent science research is indeed on a grand scale, and could cost lives... but most science fraud goes unpublished:

Rare is the scientist who goes to prison on research misconduct charges. But on 1 July, Dong-Pyou Han, a former biomedical scientist at Iowa State University in Ames, was sentenced to 57 months for fabricating and falsifying data in HIV vaccine trials.

Schools Implant IUDs in Girls as Young as 6th Grade Without Their Parents Knowing

Earlier this month, LifeNews.com reported on a high school in Seattle, Washington that is now implanting intrauterine devices (IUD), as well as other forms of birth control and doing so without parental knowledge or permission.

The IUD is known as a long acting reversible contraception, and may even act as an abortifacient. So, a young teen in Seattle can’t get a coke at her high school, but she can have a device implanted into her uterus, which can unknowingly kill her unborn child immediately after conception.

3rd “Alternative” Prominent Doctor From Florida Found Dead in 2 weeks. Authorities say MD was murdered

From the breaking news article about Dr Siever’s death:

The killing of a popular Estero doctor has left family and friends puzzled and saddened.

The body of Dr. Teresa Ann Sievers, 46, was found Monday morning at her Jarvis Road home after she didn’t arrive at work.

“We don’t know anything but that she was murdered,” said Sievers’ sister, Annie Lisa, 52. She said Sievers, her husband and children had come to Connecticut for a gathering and her sister flew home alone Sunday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These three doctors were rising stars in non-corporate approaches to health at a time when the public has started to develop a healthy skepticism about corporate-produced and government mandated medicines. Pharmaceuticals is a $300 billion a year industry, and doctors refusing to act as sales reps for that industry are a major threat, especially at a time when Obama's affordable Care Act has driven medical costs so high that people are avoiding treatment as being too expensive.

Washington Woman's Measles Death Is First in US Since 2003

A Washington woman died from measles in the spring — the first measles death in the U.S. since 2003 and the first in the state since 1990, health officials said Thursday.

The woman lacked some of the measles' common symptoms, such as a rash, so the infection was not discovered until an autopsy, Washington State Department of Health spokesman Donn Moyer said.

This is the 11th case of measles in Washington — and the sixth in Clallam County — this year, Moyer said.

Measles is highly contagious and spreads when an infected person breathes, coughs or sneezes. However, dying from it is extremely rare, Moyer said.

Officials didn't say whether the woman was vaccinated, but they did note she had a compromised immune system. They withheld her age to protect her identity but said she was not elderly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The part they are not mentioning is that the US Vaccine Court, which compensates victims of vaccine injury, acknowledged over 100 deaths from the measles vaccine last year alone!

Federal judge erases Maui voters, bows to Monsanto

Federal Judge Susan Oki Mollway just told Maui voters: you’re canceled.

Last November, Maui County passed a ballot measure that would put a stop to all local Monsanto/Dow GMO experiments, until an independent investigation could assess the harm to health.

Promptly, Monsanto and Dow sued, the result of the vote was put on hold and never enforced…and now, all these months later, the ruling has come down.

Judge Mollway decided that state and federal laws governing agriculture trump county laws.

In other words, the people have no voice.

VA: Worker's response to vet is unacceptable

Iraq war veteran Chris Dorsey figured that no one would believe he had been turned away from a VA clinic when he sought an appointment for post-traumatic stress disorder.

So when he went on Tuesday to another facility, the VA Oakwood, Georgia, Community Based Outpatient Clinic, he flipped on his smartphone camera.

On the video, Dorsey is heard waiting patiently in line for more than 5 minutes. When he reaches the check-in counter, he informs the desk he needs a transfer from the Athens, Georgia, VA system and an appointment.

The response?

"We're not accepting any new patients — not this clinic," the VA employee behind the desk says, without providing any extra information, assistance or follow-on guidance for treatment.

According to Dorsey, his previous experience, getting turned away at the VA clinic in Lawrenceville, Georgia, prompted him to bring his camera to the Oakwood facility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an outrage against our Vets.

As much as I detest wars, because I understand that they are primarily for corporate profit, our Vets need to be taken care of with the best standard of medical care possible, and I mean, Dick Cheney-level care.

This should have NEVER happened to this Vet or any other.

Fracking could hurt house prices, health and environment, official report says

Fracking operations to extract shale gas in Britain could cause nearby house prices to fall by up to 7% and create a risk of environmental damage, according to a government report that has been published in full for the first time.

Entitled Shale Gas Rural Economy Impacts, the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) document was released on Wednesday after a freedom of information battle.

An official assessment of the impact of fracking, it warned that leakage of waste fluids could affect human health through polluted water or the consumption of contaminated agricultural products.

SB277 signed into law by Governor, California to deny vaccine exemptions for school children

The vaccine discussion issue just got more complicated as California governor Jerry Brown signed SB 277. Just one day after lawmakers sent him the bill, Brown signed it into law, eliminating all personal and religious exemptions for vaccines for California's schoolchildren.

It defies common sense. It negates basic human rights. But Governor Brown has chosen to take away the right to exempt children from vaccinations for religious and personal (philosophical ) reasons for anyone who wants their child to attend school.

U.S. Congress considers mandating vaccinations for all school children

Your God-given right as a parent to choose the best and safest medical interventions for your children is under attack by a Democratic congresswoman from Florida. Representative Frederica S. Wilson from Florida's 24th District (North Miami) recently introduced the "Vaccinate All Children Act of 2015," which in a nutshell would force vaccinations on all children as a requirement to attend public school.

No longer would parents have the freedom to opt out of this form of medical assault using personal or philosophical exemptions. States would be required under Rep. Wilson's bill to basically scrap these exemptions in order to continue receiving federal funding, which amounts to the same kind of tyranny our nation's founders sacrificed their lives to escape.

Austin Regional Clinic, the largest healthcare provider network in the Central Texas region serving close to half a million residents, announced today they will begin prohibiting children who are not up to date on vaccine requirements from being seen by doctors starting tomorrow.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Those children will probably turn out to be healthier in the long run than the vaccinated ones allowed to be "treated."

Journal Verifies That the Vaccinated Are Transmitting Disease

Officials at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say the best way to prevent pertussis is to get vaccinated. However, more data continues to present itself suggesting that may be completely false. A new study published in BMC Medicine by Santa Fe Institute Omidyar Fellows Ben Althouse and Sam Scarpino points to a different, but related, source of the outbreak — vaccinated people who are infectious but who do not display the symptoms of whooping cough, suggesting that the number of people transmitting without symptoms may be many times greater than those transmitting with symptoms.

In 2012, whooping cough, or pertussis, is spread across the entire US at rates at least twice as high as those recorded in 2011 and epidemiologists and health officials were even admitting that the vaccines may be the cause.

Mandatory Vaccination: California is Ordering Genetic Alteration

Waking Times

Governor Jerry Brown just signed SB277 into law in California. No more religious or philosophical exemption from vaccination.

Oklahoma Court Rules Homeowners Can Sue Oil Companies Over Quakes

The Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that homeowners who have sustained injuries or property damage from rampant earthquakes they say are caused by oil and gas operations can sue for damages in state trial courts, rejecting efforts by the industry to block such lawsuits from being decided by juries and judges.

The case has been closely watched both by the energy industry and by fracking opponents across the United States, and the 7-to-0 ruling opens the door for homeowners in a state racked by earthquakes to pursue oil and gas companies for temblor-related damage.

It is the first time the court has specifically addressed whether plaintiffs could sue for damage that experts believe is typically caused by massive amounts of wastewater generated by oil and gas drilling — often involving hydraulic fracturing, or fracking — that are ultimately injected into underground disposal reservoirs near fault zones.

California Is Now the Perfect Test Lab for Vaccine Laws

This morning, Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into law that will ban the use of religious and personal belief exemptions—ways that parents can opt out of certain vaccines for their kids before attending public or private school. California now joins only two other states, Mississippi and West Virginia, that have no exemptions in place (though students can still opt out if a doctor says they shouldn’t get vaccinated for medical reasons). The hotly-contested law was passed in the hopes that increased vaccination rates will help stave off the spread of vaccine-preventable diseases like the measles, which broke out earlier this year in a cluster that started in Anaheim’s Disneyland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, this bill was signed to increase the profits of the big pharmaceutical corporations.

In a series of tweets, the actor accused the Centers for Disease Control of being "corrupt" and painted Brown as a "corporate fascist that must be stopped."

"California Gov says yes to poisoning more children with mercury and aluminum in manditory [sic] vaccines," Carrey tweeted. "They say mercury in fish is dangerous but forcing all of our children to be injected with mercury in Thimerosol is no risk. Make sense?"

Washington man given less than 2 gallons of water while jailed 13 days over bad check — and now he’s dead

ashington man starved to death while jailed 13 days over a bad check.

An autopsy showed that Keaton Farris died April 7 of dehydration and malnutrition after nearly two weeks in the Island County Jail, reported Natives in America.

Relatives hired a detective to investigate his death, and they learned two months later that jail employees refused to offer medical treatment to Farris or provide medication for his bipolar disorder.

They also found the 25-year-old Farris was denied even the minimum amount of water needed for human survival after guards shut it off to prevent him from flooding his cell.

The investigation revealed Farris had been given just 185 ounces of water, or about a gallon and a half, while incarcerated – far below the 1,563 ounces recommended under National Institute of Health guidelines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is what happens to mentally ill people in the US; rather than being places in a psychiatric hospital where he really belonged, he was thrown in jail, and died there.

Had he received proper treatment, he might have survived. But of course, public funds for psychiatric hospitals are nearly non-existent in this country; so people who desperately need psychiatric services are considered completely expendable by the local and federal authorities.

Mr. Farris was, obviously, one of those people.

GOV. BROWN HAS 12 DAYS TO SIGN CALIF. SCHOOL VACCINE BILL

California's contentious school vaccine bill is now on Governor Jerry Brown's desk. On Monday, the state senate passed the bill that would require vaccinations for every student.

At the heart of the debate is a personal belief exemption that, until now, allowed parents to not have their kids immunized.

Such was the decision by Mill Valley residents Alex Gatsis and Tim Lundeen, who worry that their son Jace might suffer a bad reaction based on an auto-immune condition.

"Do we move? Do we leave California, maybe?" Gatsis asked.

"I think the whole purpose of the bill is to increase the number of vaccines that are on the mandatory schedule, which is going to generate hundreds of millions of dollars. There is no public benefit to this bill but there is a benefit to Merck, and there is a benefit to the politicians who are getting campaign contributions from the pharmaceutical business," Lundee said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This bill, if signed, will witness the ushering in of an entire generation of young moms and dads who will either home school their children, rather than vaccinate, or leave the state.

If you are a California resident who has to make the tough decisions about vaccinating your kids, please do your due diligence.

But the worst offenders, in terms of vaccines leaving kids permanently damaged,seem to be the combination shots. Please do your research wisely, and remember; home schooled kids tend to do extraordinarily well on college entrance exams.

Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants: Another Reason to Shun Vaccines

Why are autoimmune disorders on the rise in a big way? For several years, researchers have been sifting through evidence that might answer that question, and recently the pieces started coming together with the discovery of a condition known as autoimmune syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA). Adjuvants are substances added to vaccines to increase the body’s immune response to them, but they may end up tipping the scale in favor of autoimmunity.

Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka breaks world record in orbit time

Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka, who is on board the International Space Station (ISS), at about 02:00 a.m. Monday Moscow Time [23:00 Sunday UTC] set a world record in the overall orbit time, set by his colleague Sergey Krikalyov 10 years ago - 803 days.
Padalka is currently making his fifth spaceflight, which he embarked on March 27. The cosmonaut is expected to return to Earth September 11. In this way, the overall time spent by him in space will reach some 880 days.
The rocket and space industry told TASS that in order for Padalka’s new record to be recognized officially, the cosmonaut has to spend five percent more time in orbit than the previous record holder. Thus, the new achievement will only be taken into account in the first ten days of August.

When rich companies with politically-connected lobbyists and seats on public bodies bend policies for their own ends, we are in serious trouble. It is then that public institutions become hijacked and our choices, freedoms and rights are destroyed. Corporate interests have too often used their dubious ‘science’, lobbyists, political connections and presence within the heart of governments to subvert institutions set up to supposedly protect the public interest for their own commercial benefit. Once their power has been established, anyone who questions them or who stands in their way can expect a very bumpy ride.

Stupidity and Intelligence: Science, GMOs and Our Food

“Science” is derived from the scire – “to know”.

Each of us should know what we are eating, how it was produced, what impact it has on our health.

“Agroecology, not the mechanistic and blind paradigm of industrial agriculture, is the truly scientific approach to food production.”

Fraudulent Big Pharma science leads to half a million psych drug deaths every year

Psychiatric drugs kill an estimated 500,000 people per year, looking only at people over age 65 living in Western countries, according to an analysis conducted by a world-renowned Danish researcher.

Peter Gotzsche, research director at the Nordic Cochrane Centre, cited the figure in an article published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), in which he argues that psychiatric drugs have only "minimal" benefits but very severe side effects. Most use of these drugs could be halted without doing any harm, he says.

California Drought So Bad, Neighbors Stealing Water From Each Other

There is simply no commodity on the planet more precious than water. Without it, life as we know it cannot exist. The human body can go without water for only three days at the most before death occurs.

Aside from the essential survival aspects, we also depend on water for many other things, such as bathing, watering our lawns and gardens, washing our clothes, and a number of other daily activities. Everyone knows this, but access to clean water is something most of us have taken for granted.

However, that is beginning to change, particularly in the Southwest region of the United States, where a drought period that has lasted for more than a decade has become a massive problem. In California, Nevada and Arizona in particular, millions of people are being affected. Experts say that the problem will only worsen over the coming years.

Anti-depressant use during menopause 'raises risk of broken bones'

Women who take common anti-depressants to counter the impact of menopause may have a 76 per cent higher risk of broken bones, scientists warn.

The risk appears to last for several years after women take the drugs, leading to calls for doctors to reduce the period for which they are prescribed.

Postage for Pluto: A 29-cent stamp pissed off scientists so much they tacked it to New Horizons

“It was my idea to send it. For many years, people had waved that stamp around as sort of a call to arms — as a motivating graphic — ‘Not yet explored,'” Stern said in a recent interview with Astronomy magazine. “That stamp had been in so many presentations by that point, I knew it would please people to have it go along.”

Hillary Clinton now fleeing the public and reporters after being outed as Bride of Frankenfoods

But there's an even bigger issue, one that may be the real reason why she hasn't been answering any questions from journalists in more than a month and is now going to great lengths to hide from reporters.

Hillary has been outed as the "Bride of Frankenfoods" -- her cozy relationship with Monsanto, a company widely regarded (and rightly so) as "the most evil corporation on the planet."

Monstrous vampires: Cameron and friends about to bleed the NHS dry

With previous Conservative governments, as bad as they were, essential state services such as Health and Education weren’t privatised. How things now look set to change as David Cameron is setting the stage of the privatization of the National Health Service.

The biggest risk to the NHS is the introduction of an American model in Britain, where citizens need to have a private healthcare plan to have access to medical care. This system is absolutely dangerous and classist, because it doesn’t allow to low income households to have a decent and free healthcare. Moreover the American model is often subject to insurance frauds and the influence of very rich lobbies.

10,000 Sue Syngenta Over Unapproved GMO Corn Shipped to China – U.S. Farmers Lose $5 Billion in Sales

Town hall meetings have been taking place recently regarding corn litigation with the Syngenta company.

The lawsuit is regarding claims that Syngenta sold genetically modified corn with a strain called MIR-162 to China without their approval of the modification.

“The first shipment that tested positive for MIR-162,” Hecker Law Group attorney Jacob Hecker said, “was destroyed by the Chinese in 2013. Afterwards all other shipments with trace amounts of the strain were sent back to where they came from.”

Due to the strain, China, who at the time was the third largest importer of US corn, boycotted all corn from being imported from the US.

America’s health care system is still broken: Why single-payer is the only thing that will ever fix it

Now, in other news yesterday, health care stocks were spiking on Wall Street: Insurers (UnitedHealth and Aetna) and corporate hospital networks (Hospital Corporation of America) were seeing strong gains. The link between these events is, of course, obvious: The Affordable Care Act’s premium subsidies are funneled through private health insurance companies, who take a cut. Corporate hospital chains, meanwhile, prefer a well-paying customer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Enlightened countries in Europe have figured out how to make this work, contain costs, and give patients good care; why can't this country?!?

Several years ago, I had a really nasty cramp in my neck that would not let go.

My doctor, whose background was Spanish and Argentinian, had a talk about the fact that in Europe, I would most probably be seen by a nurse/practitioner, who would have diagnose me, and prescribed something to alleviate the cramp without the need to actually see a doctor.

The cost would have been substantially lower than it was.

We’re At The Tipping Point

Sure, I’ve got diet on my mind. I write about diet, I think often about diet, I hang out in social media sites where the subject is diet. But I don’t believe I’m experiencing the Red Toyota Effect. I think there’s a real shift happening out there.

For starters, I keep seeing more mainstream media articles declaring that – surprise! — saturated fat doesn’t cause heart disease after all. Here are some quotes from an article in the U.K. Telegraph with the headline No link found between saturated fat and heart disease:

Protesters block construction of massive telescope on sacred Hawaiian mountain

Builders pulled back from Mauna Kea as hundreds of protesters set up roadblocks to oppose construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope on top of Hawaii’s sacred mountain. State and local police arrested a dozen demonstrators.

Construction vehicles and their police escorts "were stopped repeatedly by more than 300 protesters who set up about two dozen 'lines of defense' across the Mauna Kea access road," reported West Hawaii Today.

GM wheat crop fails to repel bugs, £3m trial branded ‘a waste’

A controversial trial of genetically modified (GM) wheat has failed to repel pests any more effectively than ordinary crops, scientists have found.

Researchers attempted to engineer a variety of wheat to emit an odor that deters aphids in the hope of reducing the amount of pesticides required by plants.

The crops, nicknamed “whiffy wheat,” were successful in lab tests, but succumbed to aphids when trialed in the field.

McCain Blows His Top Over US Inability to Abandon Russian Rocket Engines

US Senator John McCain is blowing a gasket over America's inability to find a suitable substitution for Russia's RD-180 engines, accusing his Republican fellows of playing into Moscow's hands, US journalist Tim Mak notes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. McCain, the problem is that you and your associates in the Congress, that grand and benevolent asylum for the helpless and infirm, looked the other way while American corporations boosted their profits by abandoning domestic manufacturing and buying products from cheaper suppliers located in nations with lower taxes and regulatory burdens. And this is the result. The United States can't do what it used to so. We can't make good rocket engines. We can't go back to the Moon. Hell, we can't even get our own astronauts up to the space station an earlier generation of Americans built! Hell, we can't even make an automobile ignition switch that won't shut off while driving!

You members of Congress made this mess, going back forty years. Stop trying to blame Russia for this. Russia knows what you all forgot. A nation's eocnomy must have manufactured products and agricultural produce to sell to other nations in order to prosper, or at least avoid a billion and a half dollar a day trade deficit such as the US now suffers.

This is all your fault, John. You and your cronies in Congress. Stop trying to find a scapegoat, man up, admit your mistakes, and start rebuilding our technology and manufacturing sectors!
