Leading Journals Agree That Big Pharma Manipulates Medical Research

Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Corruption in the medical industry can no longer be ignored. There’s no doubt that much of what is told to the masses, including medical schools and physicians, is simply untrue. Even Dr. Richard Horton, editor of the world’s most respected medical journal, The Lancet, agrees

EPA Knew EMFs Were a Carcinogenic Decades Ago and Covered It Up

Waking Times

Did you know that back in 1990, the Environmental Protection Agency was all set to release a report that admitted electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are dangerous to our health, including that EMFs have been linked with “the development of various cancers” but stopped short of straight up admitting they are “probable carcinogens”?

Whether or not Americans have a right to free speech increasingly depends on what the purveyors of political correctness on the Left sanction as "proper" or "improper," no matter how hypocritical, insane or outrageously insensitive.

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:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You were TOLD that saturated fats caused heart disease by the people selling low-saturated fat products! See how it works?

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.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Claire and I have been to that mountain top (before the new construction started). I do not recall seeing any of these Hawaiians concerned for the sacred mountain up there picking up all the trash alongside the road.

Common Chemicals May Trigger Cancer

A global taskforce of 174 scientists from leading research centers across 28 countries studied the link between mixtures of commonly encountered chemicals and the development of cancer.

The study selected 85 chemicals not considered carcinogenic to humans and found 50 supported key cancer-related mechanisms at exposures found in the environment 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!

Vaccines and autism: Epidemic accelerates as cases in young vaccinated children explode unabated

The UK is facing an unprecedented number of new autism cases, according to new research. Figures in Scotland, which are among the most comprehensive available in the British isles, reveal that the autism rate among students at Scottish schools is up 1,360% percent since 1998, with no perceivable end in sight.

This amounts to a one-in-68 children rate of autism, which the London School of Economics projects is costing taxpayers around $54 billion annually. This is up from about $2 billion in 2001, demonstrating the immense toll this harrowing disease is costing the public.

Scabies and lice treatment's link to cancer

A scabies cream's active ingredient has been linked to causing cancer and will be withdrawn from sale in New Zealand - but not until August.

Benhex contains lindane, which the International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organisation, this week classified as "carcinogenic for humans".

In a report in the Lancet Oncology journal, the agency said large observational studies in the United States and Canada had found a 60 per cent increased risk of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system, among those exposed to lindane used in agriculture.

However, no studies had been done to quantify the cancer risk from exposure to lindane in scabies and head lice treatments or from residues in food, the agency's head, Dr Kurt Straif, told British media.

World Health Organization Determines That Major Herbicide, 2,4-D, May Cause Cancer

On Tuesday, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization (WHO) determined that the widely used herbicide 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) is “possibly carcinogenic to humans” (Group 2B). The determination comes as Dow Chemical begins a limited roll-out of its “Enlist Weed Control System,” a package of “Enlist” corn or soybean seeds, which are genetically engineered to withstand 2,4-D and glyphosate, and a premix formulation of the two herbicides called “Enlist Duo.” Dow and USDA project these crops will increase agricultural use of 2,4-D by a massive three to seven times over current levels by 2020, depending on how widely Enlist crops are planted [1].

How the Great Food War Will Be Won

By conventional wisdom it is excellent news. Researchers from Iowa have shown that organic farming methods can yield almost as highly as pesticide-intensive methods. Other researchers, from Berkeley, California, have reached a similar conclusion. Indeed, both findings met with a very enthusiastic reception. The enthusiasm is appropriate, but only if one misses a deep and fundamental point: that even to participate in such a conversation is to fall into a carefully laid trap.

Cops bought Burger King for Dylann Roof following his arrest

New details are emerging about what happened to Dylann Roof, the man who allegedly killed nine people at a Charleston church, in the hours that followed his arrest.

Gardasil Firestorm in Denmark

In March 2015, a Danish national television station (TV2) aired a documentary focusing on girls who suspected they had been injured by the HPV vaccine Gardasil. Immediately after the airing of the show, girls with similar experiences started coming out of the woodwork. Virtually all of the girls had the same story to tell.

They began to have serious new medical conditions shortly after using Gardasil so they would go to the doctor. According to Luise Juellund, the vast majority of doctors would tell them the HPV vaccine has no serious side effects and offer psychological problems as an alternative reason for the new symptoms.

'Pointless' £3m GM wheat trial fails

The so-called "whiffy wheat" project to create a genetically engineered crop that wards off aphids by releasing an alarm signal scent cost £732,000.

But this was dwarfed by the extra £2,238,439 spent on fencing and other security measures for the field trial after threats of destructive attacks by anti-GM activists.

Campaign group GM Freeze claimed the scientists had wasted taxpayers' money in a pointless bid to "outwit nature".

Both the the trial itself and the steps taken to keep out the vandals, as well as earlier laboratory work, were wholly Government-funded through the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.

After success in the lab, the genetically modified wheat turned out to be ineffective at repelling aphids in the outdoor trial conducted at the Rothamsted Research institute in Harpenden, Herts.

Ebola cases reported in Guinea as people travel, worries increase with election campaigns

Despite hopes that the deadly Ebola outbreak could soon be contained in West Africa, it shows no signs of abating in Guinea and may be flaring up once more in Sierra Leone as people are flouting rules limiting travel meant to stop it.

The election in Guinea in October adds a new layer of worry for Guineans and health workers, with some residents saying that campaign events, in which people crowd together, shouldn't be held yet.

The deadly virus, which has killed over 11,100 people mostly in West Africa in its worst outbreak ever, has been stamped out in neighboring Liberia, but is hanging on stubbornly in Guinea, where the Ebola outbreak was first reported in March 2014. Impending presidential elections could make it even worse.

Supreme Court approves Obamacare subsidies on HealthCare.gov

Obamacare just survived a potentially fatal heart attack.

In a major decision, the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday ruled in a 6-3 decision that the federal subsidies that help nearly 6.4 million people pay for their Obamacare health plans are legal under the Affordable Care Act.

The ruling avoids what many analysts predicted would be a nightmare scenario if the plaintiffs had won: individual plan insurance prices skyrocketing in two-thirds of the United States, and the loss of health coverage for upwards of 8 million people in states served by the federal insurance marketplace HealthCare.gov by next year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The plan prices are already skyrocketing. All the argument is about is over who gets stuck with the bill!

Grocery Lobby Sends B.S. Letter to Vermont Governor Whining GMO Labels Will Cost $10M a Day

Apparently we can have labels on our food. In fact, we already do. A great variety of them, in fact.

Apparently those labels can have lots and lots of words on them. Words like “quality” and “all natural” which don’t really mean anything in a legal sense as defined by the Food and Drug Administration. Apparently those words can be comprised of the 26 letters of our standard English alphabet. Apparently those letters can include “G,” “M,” and even “O”.

However, according to the giant lobbying group Grocery Manufacturer Association, for some reason it’ll cost a whopping $10 million dollars a day in fines if those letters are put together on a label in that order to alert customers to the fact that they might be buying and eating a genetically modified organism.

If any one of these terms raised a hair on the back of your neck, left a sour taste in your mouth, or made your lips purse with disdain, you are part of Big Food’s multibillion-dollar problem. In fact, you may even belong to a growing consumer class that has some of the world’s biggest and best-known companies scrambling to change their businesses.

The American Medical Association Wants to Limit Your Health Freedom (Again)

With this, the AMA will have the right to do everything in their power to silence integrative medical practitioners against voicing their opinions in the media. While trying to reduce the accumulation of misinformation in the public is noble, it is widely misguided, particularly when it groups all natural health practitioners into the single “quack” category. The terms “quack” and “pseudoscience” are terms that the AMA uses to describe any medical professional who diverts from their own view of the medical paradigm in an attempt to reduce their credibility and silence their voice.

Samsung's 'see-through' trucks aim to reduce risk of passing on highway

Navigating busy two-lane highways can mean drivers often can't see the road for the cars and take a risk that can prove fatal when they attempt to overtake large vehicles like transport trucks.

The Korean technology giant Samsung wants to reduce that risk with the help of technology that allows drivers to virtually see "through" the vehicles ahead of them. Using monitors mounted on the back of a truck or other large vehicle and connected wirelessly to a camera in front, Samsung's Safety Truck technology shows drivers what's ahead of the 18-wheeled obstruction they're driving behind — day or night.

Nasa's Dawn Probe Takes More Photos of Mysterious Bright Spots on Ceres

New images of Ceres from Nasa's Dawn spacecraft has provided more visible images of mysterious bright spots and also revealed a pyramid-shaped peak towering over a relatively flat landscape.

Dawn has been studying the dwarf planet Ceres, the largest object in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, in detail from its second mapping orbit, which is 4,400 km above Ceres.

A new view of its intriguing bright spots, located in a crater 90km across, shows even more small spots in the crater than were previously visible, the US space agency said.

At least eight spots can be seen next to the largest bright area, which scientists think is approximately nine kilometres wide.

Flashback: How Beijing used rockets to keep opening ceremony dry

China's cunning multimillion-pound plan to manipulate the Olympic weather seems to be yielding results. While rain drenched the capital yesterday, the downpour that should have fallen on Friday night was averted; Olympic organisers fired a barrage of 1,110 rockets into the evening sky to make sure the 2008 Olympic opening ceremony was precipitation-free.

It has become a tradition in Beijing to seed the clouds before public holidays, such as National Day on 1 October, to make rain, disperse pollution and ensure clear skies on the day. But for the opening ceremony, the purpose was simply rain dispersal – bringing on a downpour but not on the Olympic stadium.

The 1 Percent’s Vile New War

Rich people rarely tell you how they really feel about poor people. Occasionally, though, you get a glimpse. Earlier this week, the Washington Post published a story about Rancho Santa Fe, a small but extremely wealthy enclave in Southern California. Like the rest of California, the people of Rancho Santa Fe are dealing with a drought.
As you might imagine, that means water is scarce and conservation is critical. For the denizens of Rancho Santa Fe, however, conservation is someone else’s problem, namely poor people.

According to Steve Yuhas, who lives in the area and hosts a conservative talk-radio show, privileged people “should not be forced to live on property with brown lawns, golf on brown courses or apologize for wanting their gardens to be beautiful.” Oh, the humanity! In case it wasn’t clear, Yuhas added that the right to water ought to scale with income: “No, we’re not all equal when it comes to water.”

NEW JAMA STUDY CONFIRMS NURSE WHISTLEBLOWING: ROUTINE HOSPITAL VACCINE DAMAGE HAPPENING TO INFANTS

It was not long ago that headlines were made by Michelle Rowton of Nurses Against Mandatory Vaccines during a live interview with David Knight of infowars.com. The nurse turned whistleblower spoke of the callous, daily operating procedure she witnessed happening in the hospital she worked at. Her admissions were yet another log on a fire lit long ago burning for people’s right to have medical freedom and choice. In that viral interview, Rowton went on record to state:

“I think what a lot of people don’t realize in a closed space like NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) is that they’ve decided that we need to vaccinate these babies on-time. Two months after they’re born…bam, there it goes. This baby could be four months early and still supposed to be inside their mother, weighting three or four pounds and getting the same amount of vaccines as a 200 pound man.”

Rowton then went further to break bombshell news at the time by saying:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

If any one of our readers knows someone who might be delivering a baby early, please be sure to share this with them, so that there is some statement in the file that indicates if the hospital vaccinates a baby in the NICU in a way that threatens its life, the doctor who has given the order, and the hospital, will be sued out of existence by the parents of that infant.

Drug Company Chief: Our Drugs Do Not Work on Most Patients

A senior executive with Britain's biggest drugs company has admitted that most prescription medicines do not work on most people who take them.

Allen Roses, worldwide vice-president of genetics at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), said fewer than half of the patients prescribed some of the most expensive drugs actually derived any benefit from them.

It is an open secret within the drugs industry that most of its products are ineffective in most patients but this is the first time that such a senior drugs boss has gone public. His comments come days after it emerged that the NHS drugs bill has soared by nearly 50 per cent in three years, rising by £2.3bn a year to an annual cost to the taxpayer of £7.2bn. GSK announced last week that it had 20 or more new drugs under development that could each earn the company up to $1bn (£600m) a year.

?Sanctions create favorable conditions for Russian industry – trade minister

The sanctions have multiple advantages for Russia, as they motivate companies to turn to domestically produced goods and boost the economy, Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov told RT.

“I don’t want to sound cynical, but since I’m in charge of the real sector of the economy, in charge of the Russian industry, I can say we’ve actually benefited in more ways than one from sanctions imposed last year,” said Manturov at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum (SPIEF), adding that before the sanctions were put into effect Russian companies paid less attention to domestic products.

"...now sanctions provided them [companies and consumers - Ed.] with additional motivation, and they are turning to Russian companies. This generates demand for the Russian industry. So, to me, this was an advantage, in a sense," he added.

American Medical Association Supports the Elimination of Parents’ Right to Make Vaccine Choices, and California Takes Another Step Toward Medical Tyranny

In 2012, then California Assemblyman Dr. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento)1 assured Californians that a bill he sponsored (AB2107) to increase child vaccination rates in the state would not remove parental rights to make vaccine choices for their children.

Now a state Senator, he's singing a different tune. This year he worked with attorney Senator Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica) to fast track a bill (SB277) through the state legislature

The bill would make it virtually impossible for California children to attend daycare or get a school education without receiving more than 40 doses of 10 federally recommended vaccines or filing a medical vaccine exemption granted by a medical doctor.

Gaza's amazing dinosaur attraction takes you back millions of years

J G Ballard needed environmental change to bring the dinosaurs back to life in his 1962 novel The Drowned World. At Gaza's DinoZoo, though, Palestinian engineers, with German support, have used animatronic technology to do just that.

Owner Iskander Abu-Karam has spent a lot of money on the attraction, not least because of the shortage of the resources needed. "I wanted to challenge the siege on Gaza and offer something new for my guests," he explained. "DinoZoo is a very popular attraction that takes take our guests on a journey that started and ended millions of years ago."

Sperm count: Fertility in men on the decline due to everyday plastics say scientists

Men are suffering a sharp decline in fertility because of the prevalence of every-day plastics, say scientists.

And Niels Jørgensen, associate professor at Rigshospital, Copenhagen, has told the European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology's conference in Lisbon that only one in four men have "good" sperm.

According to The Times, phthalates, chemicals that are found in shower curtains, car dashboards and cleaning materials, "can be breathed in, consumed or absorbed through the skin of pregnant women, inhibiting testosterone production in male foetuses, leading to sons with low sperm counts".

Jørgensen said that society should be "very worried" by these studies, and advised women to try to avoid cosmetics.

Herbicide-Resistant Insects Are Destroying GMO Crops Like Never Before

The authors also found that not only did the rootworm thrive in Bt corn fields, but the pest had the potential to “develop resistance rapidly” when Bt crops don’t produce a high enough level of Bt toxin, and therefore would require farmers to use more pesticides to eradicate the pest.

In short, Bt corn didn’t eradicate the pest it was meant to destroy; it only made it stronger, thereby causing even more pesticide use. Sounds like a perfect biotech creation made in cahoots with companies that sell chemicals for a living – and yet we trust them to make our food?

Feds bust four fake cancer charities that defrauded $187 million from Americans

A string of cancer charities -- the Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, the Breast Cancer Society and the Children's Cancer Fund of America -- have turned out to be manipulative frauds run by a family of con artists. The money they raised for cancer patients actually went to pay for personal luxuries instead -- Disney World trips, jet ski outings, new cars, college tuition and luxury travel.

WHY ARE WE BUILDING A RESEARCH CENTER FULL OF DEADLY DISEASES IN THE TORNADO CAPITAL OF THE WORLD?

If the foot-and-mouth virus—or any other airborne danger—escaped from the lab, the air currents would likely carry it beyond where it could cause harm. An out-of-the-way location makes sense because no lab is risk free. In 2007, for instance, the foot-and-mouth virus escaped from Great Britain’s Pirbright Institute, one of the world’s leading laboratories studying animal disease, and set off an outbreak at a nearby farm.

MONSANTO PROTECTION ACT PART 2? NEW BILL INTRODUCED SPELLS BAD NEWS FOR GMO ACTIVISTS

A couple of years ago, a bill was introduced (H.R. 933) allowing big biotech corporations, like Monsanto, to override United States federal courts on the issue of planting experimental genetically engineered crops all across the US. This rendered the government powerless when it came to stopping other biotechnology corporations from planting and harvesting. The measure shields sellers of genetically modified seeds from lawsuits, even if the resulting crops cause harm. As a result, the public labelled this bill “The Monsanto Protection Act.”

Merck, Other Pharma Companies Helped Fund Activist Groups Who Petitioned the EPA to Regulate Nano-Silver as a Pesticide

Last year it was revealed that a handful of the activist agencies behind the petition to the EPA to regulate nano-silver as a pesticide received funding from pharmaceutical giant Merck, which annually has hundreds of billions of dollars in profits from patented antibioics which many believe are less effective, less safe and far more expensive than colloidal nano-silver products.

Further investigation by this reporter discovered that the initial revelations were just the tip of the iceberg when it came Merck and other pharmaceutical companies' funding of the groups who supported the EPA's regulation of nano-silver.

Why Governments Promote Deadly Nuclear Energy & Ban Beneficial Hemp

It is incredibly difficult to encapsulate lies, spin and omitted truths into a single idea that can be understood by those who are systemically compelled to ingest the results of those lies. But here goes…. Societal fraud, whether outright lies or omitted truths (which are just clever lies), requires a whole series of resolute paradigm insistence and institutional dictum. Societal fraud essentially says that 2 + 2 = 5, or that what you are seeing clearly is something else entirely. And it is done in such a way that you believe it – or are ostracized for not believing it. Societal lies are so many and so multi-faceted that the truth can be obscured (nearly) completely by specific bogus intricacies – and, as was the intention of those intricacies, most of us are lost in the fog.

Senator Pan's Outrageous Vaccine Lies

Nothing is more disappointing, and even disgusting, than to see someone who obviously should know better, especially a duly-licensed professional, make a verifiable dumb ass out of himself. That’s one thing, but when it cascades back on to others, well that’s a totally different story.

That happened to none other than the propellant for California’s vaccination bill SB277, California State Senator and Pediatrician Richard Pan...
