NASA time-lapse shows Opportunity rover's 11yr Mars journey in 8 minutes (VIDEO)

NASA's Opportunity rover has roamed more than 26 miles across Mars over the past 11 years – and now you can watch its epic journey in just eight minutes, thanks to a time-lapse video released by the space agency.

The time-lapse documents Opportunity's marathon across the Red Planet with a series of images captured by its cameras between January 2004 and April 2015.

The footage allows viewers to feel like they're in the driver's seat, as the rover bumps along the rough terrain and explores its surroundings.

The video even has its own soundtrack, created from vibration measurements taken on its journey. Loud noises indicate the ground was rough beneath its wheels. Quiet sounds mean the terrain was smooth.

One year on – Marijuana legalization has actually improved Washington State

As several states consider marijuana legalization initiatives, all eyes are on the initial outcomes of Washington’s marijuana law. In 2012, Washington and Colorado became the first two states to pass laws taxing and regulating marijuana. Wednesday will mark the one-year anniversary of retail marijuana sales in Washington. Adult possession of marijuana became legal on December 6, 2012, 30 days after the passage of I-502, the voter-approved initiative legalizing marijuana for adults 21 and older. A year-and-a-half later, the first retail marijuana store opened its doors on July 8, 2014.

Patients lash out at 'monster' cancer doctor in fraud case

Telling stories of deep anguish, patients and their relatives described Tuesday how a Detroit-area cancer doctor wrecked their lives through excessive treatments and intentional misdiagnoses while he collected millions of dollars from insurers.

A judge set aside nearly four hours to hear from victims of Dr. Farid Fata, who faces sentencing this week for fraud and other crimes. Some entered court with canes. Others wore elastic sleeves on their wrists, their joints weakened by years of unnecessary chemotherapy. They said they were betrayed by a soft-spoken doctor who won their trust but left them devastated.

Antidepressants May be Worsening Depression, Not Treating It

Waking Times

Could it all be based on a myth? For years we’ve been told that depression is caused by low serotonin levels in the brain. Now, a leading professor of psychiatry is warning that belief is little more than a dangerous miscommunication, saying the marketing of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) drugs is “based on a myth.”

Pesticide exposure during pregnancy linked to higher autism risk

Pregnant women in California who live close to areas where chemical pesticides are used are more likely to have a child with autism, says a study released by UC Davis researchers Monday.

Autism boom: an epidemic of disease or of discovery?
Women living within about a mile of fields, farms or other sites that use agricultural pesticides have a 60% higher risk of delivering a child with autism spectrum disorder or other developmental delays. Women in their second and third trimesters appear to be at the highest risk, according to the study.

The study, published Monday in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, strengthens the evidence linking developmental disorders with exposure to pesticides during gestation, researchers said.

VIDEO: PFIZER VICE PRESIDENT BLOWS THE WHISTLE & TELLS THE TRUTH ABOUT THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.” – Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) (source) “The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” – Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world.

Hawaii Becomes First State in The Nation to Ban Plastic Bags

In the past couple of years, cities and towns across the nation have started to ban plastic bags. Less than one percent of plastic bags are recycled, and it costs more to recycle a plastic bag that create a new one. That’s why Oahu, the most populated Hawaiian island, decided to join the other Hawaiian islands and officially ban plastic and other non-compostable bags from their stores. Beginning Wednesday, Hawaii will become the first state in the nation to ban plastic bags.

Webmaster addition: Actually, I like the return to paper bags which are stiff and hold their shape, as opposed to those limp plastic bags that let your groceries fall out and roll all over the trunk of your car!

Why Oncologists Don’t Like Baking Soda Cancer Treatment

Even the most aggressive cancers which have metastasized have been reversed with baking soda cancer treatments. Although chemotherapy is toxic to all cells, it represents the only measure that oncologists employ in their practice to almost all cancer patients. In fact, 9 out of 10 cancer patients agree to chemotherapy first without investigating other less invasive options.

Doctors and pharmaceutical companies make money from it. That’s the only reason chemotherapy is still used. Not because it’s effective, decreases morbidity, mortality or diminishes any specific cancer rates. In fact, it does the opposite. Chemotherapy boosts cancer growth and long-term mortality rates and oncologists know it.

Wilderness Corridors: Agenda 21 Under A New Name

When it comes to people the government fears the most, those who live in rural areas must be somewhere near the top of the list. Not that there’s anything wrong with this particular group of people. It’s just that they’re a demographic that the government often struggles to contend with.

They usually have the resources to take care of themselves, and often by necessity, which makes it difficult to corral this population. When you have no choice but to take care of yourself because government services are too far away, they don’t have any good excuses for telling you what to do. They know that if they tried to micromanage your life, they would utterly fail (at least more than they do already).

Newsweek (Controlled Media) Finally Admits Water Fluoridation Does Not Prevent Cavities, But Does Retard Children

A new and highly-needed scientific review has found that there’s no real evidence linking water fluoridation with cavity prevention, further proving that the IQ-damaging substance known as sodium fluoride truly does not have a place in our water supply. BY ANTHONY GUCCIARDI It was back in 2012 that I shared with you the results from a major Harvard study that revealed the dark relationship between IQ levels and sodium fluoride consumption. Specifically, the Harvard researchers detailed the fact that children who lived in areas with high sodium fluoride content had ‘significantly lower’ IQ than those in areas with less added fluoride content. What’s more, this research was published in a federal government medical journal known as Environmental Health Perspectives.

NEW EVIDENCE LINKS FLUORIDE TO INCREASING CASES OF ADHD MORE WATER FLUORIDATION = MORE ADHD

The evidence from a new scientific research study shows that children who live in water districts where the water supply is systematically fluoridated suffer with ADHD at a significantly higher rate.

“A multivariate regression analysis showed that after socioeconomic status was controlled each 1 percent increase in artificial fluoridation prevalence in 1992 was associated with approximately 67,000 to 131,000 additional ADHD diagnoses from 2003 to 2011.” [1]

For those who are not initiated in the realm of medical statistics, the number of additional diagnoses cited above is extraordinary by any standard of measurement. This study conclusively demonstrates that fluoride exposure among children and adolescents has significant consequences, primarily because of their formative stage of growth and development.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at consumerhealth.org:

THE ADDITION OF FLUORIDE, A POTENTIALLY TOXIC SUBSTANCE, TO THE PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY IS COMPULSORY MASS MEDICATION. IT VIOLATES ALL ETHICAL PRINCIPLES. Many of the speakers at the Total Health 81 conference referred to the problem we have with our fluoridated drinking water: DR. JAN DE VRIES, Dr. H.Med., Ph.D., D.Ac., D.O., N.D. "I was very shocked that you poor people in Toronto have to drink this water. We have had a tremendous fight in Holland, which we won. This fluoride water is a chemical soft-working tranquilizer. Hitler put fluoride in the water to keep his prisoners quiet, and the same thing happens in other parts of the world. If I put a homeopathic remedy in this water, the remedy is destroyed. If you can work at getting this out of your water in any way at all, I would be very happy." DR. WILLIAM ELLIS, D.O. "The environmental protective agency in the United States has shown that the water in the 90 largest cities in the United States' all cause cancer. It's been proven in U.S. federal court that fluoridation of the inorganic form, which is the end product of aluminum manufacturing, is a cancer causative agent." DR. WILLIAM MORRIS, D.C., N.D. "Fluoride hardens the arteries and it does a lot more damage. It's toxic, but it happens to be a waste product of a very influential type of industry. We don't need the fluoride in our water. It's an infringement on our freedom. That's what Consumer Health is all about. We must make our rights known, and we must fight for it. Air and water are our first two needs, and they are being politically polluted. I think you should get behind Consumer Health and let's put some pressure and lobby to get better air and water." DISEASES CONNECTED WITH FLUORIDE Diseases connected with fluoride ingestion are cancer (of the mouth, esophagus, stomach, large intestine, rectum, kidney, bladder, urinary organs, breast, ovary), goiter, mongolism, kidney disease & osteoporosis. Additional problems are caused by fluoride in anaesthetics, gases and aerosol propellants. Symptoms can appear as long as 20 to 30 years later, as fluoride is so very prone to accumulate, not only in the bones and teeth, but also in the soft tissues of the body. Physiologically, the fluoride ion is an avid bone seeker and a potent enzyme inhibitor according to Dr. Albert Burgstahler, University of Kansas. He states that fluoride depresses growth rate of human cells, causes dermatitis, affects thyroid and heart function, circulation and reproduction, is more potent than cyanide as an inhibitor of respiration, disturbs hormonal balance, and increases the incidence of mongolism by 15%. Upon its accumulation in tissues, fluoride may incorporate itself into naturally occurring compounds to form, for example, fluorouracil, capable of producing cancer or giving rise to deformed babies. Symptoms associated with low-grade fluoride poisoning include excessive thirst, headaches, blurred vision, arthritis, gastrointestinal disturbances and excess urination. These will usually disappear if fluoridated water is replaced by distilled or spring water with a low fluoride level. CANCER AND FLUORIDATION In 1971, Dr. Dean Burke, Ph.D., began a study of the effects of fluoridation in drinking water in the United States. Dr. Burke was for 35 years, head of the cytochemistry section, and was co-founder of the National Cancer Institute, U.S.A. He has received many awards for cancer research and biochemistry, including the Domagh Prize, 1965, for cancer research. He has been involved in cancer research for 50 years. Results of his studies show that a large increase in human cancer mortality in the U.S. is associated with public water fluoridation. "One-tenth of the 350,000 cancer deaths per year in the U.S. are linked with artificial public water fluoridation." (See graph on last page) "We took the ten largest cities that had been fluoridated and compared them with the ten largest cities that had not been fluoridated. The fluoridation didn't start until 1952 to 1956, and has been continued ever since in the fluoridated group. Between 1940 and 1952 these two groups were identical, could not be distinguished on this curve. But from 1952 on, the curves have been continually widening to the point that there's now a difference of approximately 35,000 a year. There's no question about the data or our particular arrangement of it. The data is from government sources, which any high school student can look up and confirm. Nearly all of the fluoridation-linked cancer deaths are found to begin at the age of about 45 and then steadily increase with age. This situation is sharply different from the increased cancer deaths resulting from cigarette smoking, asbestos or hormones given to expectant mothers. Here a lag of 15 to 30 years is common. Increased death rates due to fluoridated water commence within a few years after initiation of fluoridation with marked continued increase thereafter."

Study shows vaccines harm underweight newborns; researchers conclusively deny their own science

A recent study published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics found that extremely low-birth-weight infants (ELBW) -- that is, babies who are born with a birth weight of less than two pounds, three ounces -- have a significantly higher risk of suffering severe adverse events or dying after being vaccinated. But curiously, the same paper that admits this also claims that it doesn't admit this, encouraging doctors to jab underweight babies as normal!

The CDC Made These Two Radical Changes and 30,000 Diagnoses of Polio Instantly Disappeared

By Shawn Siegel

The polio vaccine was licensed in the U.S. in 1954. Cases were automatically eliminated by two radical changes the CDC made to the diagnostic parameters and labeling protocol of the disease as soon as the vaccine was licensed – 30,000 cases a year we were subsequently told were eliminated by the vaccine.

That success, held aloft as a banner of the industry, is an illusion...

New Horizons space probe suffers glitch on approach to Pluto

NASA scientists were working on Sunday to revive the New Horizons spacecraft after it suffered a computer malfunction just nine days before it was due to fly past Pluto.

The probe has been barreling toward the dwarf planet and its primary moon, Charon, since January 2006.

On Saturday, an unknown glitch caused New Horizons to switch to a backup computer, which triggered an 81-minute break in radio communications with mission controllers at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Md., NASA said in a status report.

"Full recovery is expected to take from one to several days," NASA said. "New Horizons will be temporarily unable to collect science data during that time."

MONSANTO INVESTS BILLIONS IN NEW CARCINOGENIC HERBICIDE TO REPLACE ROUNDUP

It was reported last week that Monsanto will be replacing their controversial herbicide RoundUp with another dangerous substance known as Dicamba.

In a statement released last month, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced that glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide “RoundUp”, is “probably carcinogenic.”

The report indicated studies that “sufficiently demonstrated” that this substance caused cancer in animals. According to multiple reports, Monsanto was well aware that this chemical caused cancer for decades yet still continued to sell it.

As we have been reporting over the past several months, glyphosate is now even banned in many areas as a result of these studies.

According to Reuters, Monsanto is now dumping more than a billion dollars into a production facility that will distribute dicamba, the new chemical that will likely be replacing glyphosate.

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.

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.

Texas Clinics Turning Away Unvaccinated Children

A network of clinics in Texas has issued new guidelines asserting their facilities will no longer take children as patients if they have not been vaccinated.

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

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

Now only a medical doctor’s note stating a person should not be vaccinated will provide an exemption — and you can be sure doctors who sign a number of these notes will be tracked, scrutinized, harassed, and attacked by the State.

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.

"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?"

Major Geologic movement in Ontario Canada — Methane Gas Geyser bursts from the ground

Officials are saying this is a ‘natural’ burst of gas from the ground, and have issued a local state of emergency – warning people to keep away from the area.

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.

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.

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.

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.
