World is losing battle against Ebola, medics say

The international group Doctor Without Borders has warned that the world is losing the battle against Ebola and lamented that treatment centres in West Africa have been "reduced to places where people go to die alone."

In separate remarks after a United Nations meeting on the crisis, the World Health Organisation chief said everyone involved had underestimated the outbreak, which has now killed more than 1,500 people in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. UN officials implored governments worldwide to send medical workers and material contributions.

Meanwhile in Liberia, a missionary organisation announced that another American doctor has become infected.

Doctors Without Borders, which has treated more than 1,000 Ebola patients in West Africa since March, is completely overwhelmed by the disease, said Joanne Liu, the organization's president.

30 Million Americans On Antidepressants And 21 Other Facts About America’s Endless Pharmaceutical Nightmare

Has there ever been a nation more hooked on drugs than the United States? And I am not just talking about illegal drugs – the truth is that the number of Americans addicted to legal drugs is far greater than the number of Americans addicted to illegal drugs. As you will read about below, more than 30 million Americans are currently on antidepressants and doctors in the U.S. wrote more than 250 million prescriptions for painkillers last year. Sadly, most people got hooked on these drugs very innocently.

There she blows! Incredible photographs capture Bardarbunga spewing lava 30 metres into the air during dramatic eruption

This is the moment molten lava spews more than 30 metres into the air during a dramatic volcanic eruption.

Scientists who are monitoring the latest eruption in the 200-year-old Holuhraun lava field, near the Bardarbunga volcano in southeast Iceland, have been treated to quite a show since it began Sunday.

They say the eruption from a fissure just north of the rumbling volcano has not created any ash fall and the seismic activity decreased by almost half on Tuesday, with 300 earthquakes reported over a 12-hour period.

American male doctor contracts Ebola while working in Liberia as experts warn the world is losing the battle against deadly disease

An American male doctor has contracted the Ebola virus while working at a hospital in Liberia, it was confirmed today, as experts warned the world is losing the battle against the deadly disease.

The organization, Serving In Mission, said the unnamed doctor had been treating women in the obstetrics ward of a hospital in the Liberian capital.

The group doesn't know how the doctor contracted Ebola since the ward is separate from the area where Ebola patients are being treated.

California water infrastructure on verge of historic collapse

Writing for The Washington Post (WP), journalist Joby Warrick draws attention to what many scientists say is an unprecedented collapse of California's vast water infrastructure, which is marked by an elaborate system of canals, reservoirs and wells that transfer water from the mountains and other areas to the Central Valley. Altogether, the state contains some 27 million acres of cropland. This system is now failing, say experts, and the consequences will more than likely be unparalleled in California's history.

According to the report, many of California's underground aquifers, which are typically drawn upon as a last resort when all else fails, are now the go-to for watering food crops throughout the state. In some areas, these aquifers have dropped by as much as 100 feet, an unprecedented decline that, even if the drought suddenly ended, would likely take several decades or longer to fully recharge.

But the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has released new guidelines urging pregnant women to get their seasonal flu shots, even though these vaccines often contain up to 25,000 times more inorganic mercury in the form of thimerosal than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) maximum contaminant levels for drinking water.

Pesticide exposure can cause disease across four generations

A single person's exposure to pesticides may affect not just the person exposed but also three or more generations of their descendents, according to a study conducted by researchers from Washington State University and published in the journal PLOS ONE.

The study looked at the effects of exposure to methoxychlor, a formerly widespread insecticide banned in the United States just over a decade ago.

"What your great-grandmother was exposed to during pregnancy, like the pesticide methoxychlor, may promote a dramatic increase in your susceptibility to develop disease, and you will pass this on to your grandchildren in the absence of any continued exposures," researcher Michael Skinner said.

The Server Needs To Die To Save The Internet

Do we have the Internet we deserve? There’s an argument to say that yes, we absolutely do. Given web users’ general reluctance to pay for content. We are of course, paying. Just not with cold hard cash, but with our privacy — as digital business models rely on gathering and selling intel on their users to make the money to pay (the investors who paid) for the free service.

A UK startup called MaidSafe, based in the small town of Troon in Scotland, reckons the myriad problems with today’s Internet can be linked to a design quirk of its underlying architecture. And that the answer to solving the web’s most perennial issues, such as finding sustainable digital business models for content, safeguarding user data and privacy, and thwarting hacking, malware and overreaching surveillance, is to begin again — with a whole new re-architected Internet.

NAVY Nurse Who Refused To Force Feed Guantanamo Inmates Is Facing Court Martial

Detainees at Guantanamo Bay have been protesting their imprisonment and cruel treatment with ongoing hunger strikes for the past several months, and have been attacked and force fed by guards as a result. These actions were condemned by more that 250 doctors from the UK, the US, Ireland, Germany, Australia, Italy and the Netherlands.

One nurse that was responsible for force feeding the prisoners, recently made news by refusing to do so. For a length of time this nurse obeyed the orders that he was given, but eventually began to regret his actions, and became a conscientious objector. A spokesperson for the NAVY would not release the name of the nurse, nor the details of their case. They only revealed that the nurse was sent home early and that he is currently “pending court martial”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone who has ever had a doctor recommend NG feeding for a period of time understands that, even when done by the gentlest, and most competent medical professionals, the procedure is still rough on the system.

To have this done as punishment for being on a hunger fast, against inhumane conditions, when one has never been convicted of any wrong doing, is reprehensible, immoral, and brutal, and should never be carried out at all.

CDC Responds to Allegation it Omitted Vaccine-Autism Study Link

It is highly unusual, if not unprecedented, for a sitting CDC senior scientist to blow the whistle on alleged scientific misconduct involving a study article that he co-authored. In this instance, the impact of the charge is magnified by more than a decade of allegations from autism advocates who say the federal government and pharmaceutical interests have worked to downplay or hide associations between vaccines and autism.

A spokesman for the journal Pediatrics today said the publication stands by the study despite the news. “There’s a standard process that journals follow when an article is questioned,” said the spokesman. “Those discussions took place between the editors of Pediatrics and the authors of this study, and the editors concluded the research was appropriately conducted.” Pediatrics is published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which accepts vaccine industry funding.

Monsanto has sued farmers for 16 years, never lost a case

Where is the justice? Since 1997, Monsanto has filed 145 lawsuits, or on average about 9 lawsuits every year for 16 straight years, against farmers who have “improperly reused their patented seeds.”

The biotech giant hasn’t lost a single case, either. Not one. This includes when farmers tried to sue Monsanto over cross-pollination of their organic crops with GMO seed. For example, a federal court dismissed one of those cases, saying that it couldn’t protect Monsanto against unfair lawsuits should they side in the farmers’ favor.

What about unfair business practices? What about 92% of people saying they want their food labeled if it contains genetically modified ingredients? What about the right of farmers to grow food from seed that hasn’t been altered to turn it into a DNA freak show?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just how many congressional representatives Monsanto owns, and how many judges (through sweet stock options)it owns as well.

Myth of arctic meltdown: Stunning satellite images show summer ice cap is thicker and covers 1.7million square kilometres MORE than 2 years ago...despite Al Gore's prediction it would be ICE-FREE by now

Those comments came in 2007 as Mr Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaigning on climate change.

But seven years after his warning, The Mail on Sunday can reveal that, far from vanishing, the Arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in succession – with a surge, depending on how you measure it, of between 43 and 63 per cent since 2012.

Australian Meteo Bureau Caught Fudging Numbers To 'Prove' Global Warming

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has been caught red-handed manipulating temperature data to show "global warming" where none actually exists.

At Amberley, Queensland, for example, the data at a weather station showing 1 degree Celsius cooling per century was "homogenized" (adjusted) by the Bureau so that it instead showed a 2.5 degrees warming per century.

At Rutherglen, Victoria, a cooling trend of -0.35 degrees C per century was magically transformed at the stroke of an Australian meteorologist's pen into a warming trend of 1.73 degrees C per century.

Monsanto in Ukraine: IMF loan for Ukraine may give GMO giant a backdoor into EU

Ukraine’s bid for closer ties with the west could come at a cost. With the IMF set to loan the country $17 billion, the deal could also see GMO crops grown in some of the most fertile lands on the continent, warns Frederic Mousseau.

Very few, not least the Ukrainian population are aware of these details, but according to Mousseau, who is a Policy Director at The Oakland Institute, in return for the cash, Ukraine could very well become a test ground for GMO crops in Europe, something the rest of the European Union has been looking to prevent.

NASA to reformat Opportunity rover's memory from 125 million miles away

Opportunity's computer systems are powered by a radiation-hardened IBM 20 MHz RAD6000 RISC processor and it stores data to upload to Earth on 256 MB of flash memory. Individual cells in each section of its flash memory have now been overwritten so many times that Opportunity is resetting itself dozens of times a month.

"Worn-out cells in the flash memory are the leading suspect in causing these resets," said JPL's John Callas, project manager for NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Project.

"The flash reformatting is a low-risk process, as critical sequences and flight software are stored elsewhere in other non-volatile memory on the rover."

Research Reveals How Sugar CAUSES Cancer

Sayer Ji
Activist Post

Hospitals feed cancer patients sugar and high carbohydrate diets for a reason: they are abysmally ignorant of the role of nutrition in health and disease -- hence their burgeoning growth and packed rooms.

Even though the science itself shows – at least since the mid-'20s with Otto Warburg's cancer hypothesis -- that tumors prefer to utilize sugar fermentation to produce energy rather than the much more efficient oxygen-based phosphorylation* – hospitals have actually invited corporations like McDonald's to move into their facilities to 'enhance' their patient's gustatory experience, presumably to provide comfort and take the edge off of the painful surgery, radiation and chemo treatments erroneously proffered to them as the only reasonable 'standard of care.'

Science | Windowless Planes Offer Spectacular Panorama | +VIDEO

Technicon Design’s idea is not to ruin your views while cruising through the air, but to enhance them. This would be achieved by filming the exterior environment and displaying it on inside surfaces throughout the cabin. Rather than being restricted to a small window, passengers would experience a spectacular panoramic view of the world. Of course, it would also be possible to display other things on the screen besides the sky, such as movies.

While this may sound gimmicky, removing windows has the added benefit of weight reduction and would also simplify plane construction. It would also allow greater flexibility when designing the interior of the plane.
“The ethos of the project is simple, to challenge current thinking, and propose something a little different, but not just a fantasy,” Technicon’s Design Director Gareth Davies said in a news-release. “It has to be credible and relevant, yet provoke discussion.”

How Badly Is Fukushima Radiation Damaging the Pacific Ocean?

Richard Wilcox, PhD
Activist Post

I watched some wonderful movies over the summer with “ocean” themes and one was with Robert Redford called All is Lost. The entertainment value was good but it also made a statement about Man's interference with Nature and how nature can strike back. I love films like All is Lost, Master and Commander, in which the imperial navy visits the Galapagos Islands and “Kon Tiki,” a story about a 4,000 mile trek across the ocean, because they show the unspeakable beauty and power of the world's great oceans. Can humans actually destroy them?

Over the past year we've read many news stories about mass die-offs of marine species in the Pacific Ocean and other regions. One hypothesis in the alternative media is that the massive radiation released from the Fukushima nuclear disaster is the cause. Others blame over-fishing, pollution or climatic events...

Bill Gates gives Cornell $6.1 million to "depolarize" the GMO debate

Supported by a $5.6 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Cornell Alliance for Science will help inform decision-makers and consumers through an online information portal and training programs to help researchers and stakeholders effectively communicate the potential impacts of agricultural technology and how such technology works.

The project will involve developing multimedia resources, including videos of farmers from around the world documenting their struggles to deal with pests, diseases, crop failure and the limited resources available in the face of poverty and climate change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Depolarize" ?!?!? Please, Bill, don't you understand how pathetically transparent you look through this move?!?

You are trying to buy consent, through this university program, to the widespread ownership, by corporations, of GMO seed stock, to the point where naturally occurring seed stock ceases to exist. And why?

The answer is very simple. As reported at infowars.com on Feb 12th, 2013:

Bill Gates is primarily known as the multi-billionaire who Microsoft, the company behind the most popular computer operating system known as Windows. With this massive wealth, he has retired from leading Microsoft and now instead focuses his money and time on furthering genetically modified technology, geoengineering, experimental vaccinations, and preaching about how Monsanto is the answer to world hunger. It should come as no surprise, then, that Gates owns 500,000 shares worth 23 million US dollars (or more) of Monsanto stock. The very same company that has been caught running slave rings in Argentina in which workers were forced to work 14+ hours a day while withholding payment, has used their massive finances to fund organizations that literally fake FDA quotes to support GMOs, and of course peddling through GMOs that have been linked to numerous health concerns. This is not even taking into account the farmer suicides that occur around every 30 minutes due to Monsanto’s failing GMO crop yield bankrupting small-time farmers in India’s notorious ‘suicide belt‘. Bill Gates Funding Corporations Caught in Child Slave Rings And if that’s not enough, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has even teamed up with Cargill to pump GMO soy into the third world. Cargill, of course, is the the 133 billion dollar corporation that also has been found in direct violation of human rights laws. Cargill was sued by the International Labor Rights Fund for trafficking children from Mali and forcing them to work on cocoa bean plantations for around 12 to 14 hours each day without pay, food, or sleep. The company even continues to purchase cotton from Uzbekistan, where it is well known that child slave labor is used in the cultivation.

It is all very simple. GMOS are in and of themself a population control device, because they can sicken, and kill, people who eat them. And then, let's not forget the epicyte genes, which contains anti-sperm antibodies, and cause the women who eat them to become sterile.

The very rich are very particular that the very poor die as quickly as possible, or at best, not be born.

I would suggest that Bill and Melinda Gates eat nothing but GMO foods for at least two years, then have their medical records published after that point in time, to promote GMO safety at the risk of their own, person health.

Of course, that will happen when pigs fly.

Easier to buy a university program to obtain compliance to your Monsanto-produced GMOs, right, Bill?!?

25% Drop In Prescription Drug Fatalities Thanks To Medicinal Marijuana

A new study reveals that states where medical marijuana is legal experience around one-quarter fewer deaths from prescription drug overdoses, signaling perhaps a small victory for proponents of pot’s alleged pain-alleviating powers.

According to the study published in the latest installment of JAMA Internal Medicine, the 13 states in America that have legalized the use of medical marijuana for patients with valid prescriptions see a 24.8 percent lower annual opioid overdose rate that those where weed can’t legally be offered to treat ailments.

Study: Junk food may trap people in a cycle of unhealthy eating by making them less likely to try a variety of new foods and more likely to respond to visual cues for junk food in the future

Junk food may trap people in a cycle of unhealthy eating by making them less likely to try new foods and more likely to respond to cues for junk food in the future.

It’s no secret that high-fat and calorie-rich foods are a major contributor to weight gain and obesity. But a junk food diet doesn’t just pack on the pounds — it may actually reduce a person's desire to eat a more diverse diet.

Fissure Eruption Begins In Iceland As Bardarbunga Magma Breaches The Surface

Over the weekend, we reported that Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano, located under Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull, has started to erupt with the Iceland met service warning of yet another possible pyroclastic cloud, one which will likely snarl transatlantic air traffic as happened after the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajokull and the 2011 smaller but just as damaging Grimsvotn volcano eruption.

Well, as Icenews reports, a fissure eruption has started in the Holuhraun lavafield north of Dyngjujökull. Newly formed crevasses were spotted in surveillance flyovers by scientists yesterday and at that time geophysicist Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson estimated that the magma intrusion which had been monitored for the previous week was moving only 2 kilometres under the surface.

3 Vaccines That Should Be Banned And Never Administered To Any Child

Waking Times

Before following the advice of your medical doctor on immunization (which is not synonymous with vaccination), you may want to reconsider giving any vaccines to your child until you have completed sufficient research on the risks, side effects and actual causes of the diseases you are vaccinating against. The following are three highly controversial vaccines that many experts now believe should be banned from all vaccination practices in children.

Respected Medical Journal Sold To Scammers Willing To Publish Anything... For A Fee

We've talked in the past about the ridiculous nature of the academic publishing world these days, which involve a variety of questionable tactics mostly focused on (1) predatorily preying on those who "need" to be published, (2) enabling researchers (and sometimes large companies) to whitewash shoddy research by "publishing" it for a fee, and (3) making the "publishers" filthy stinking rich despite doing no actual work. The problem is that, while much of this is scammy, the line between fraudulent practices and more "legitimate" practices are pretty damn blurry.

Heroin’s Death Toll Rising in New York, Amid a Shift in Who Uses It

A heroin crisis gripping communities across the country deepened in New York last year, with more people in the city dying in overdoses from the drug than in any year since 2003.

In all, 420 people fatally overdosed on heroin in 2013 out of a total of 782 drug overdoses, rising to a level not seen in a decade in both absolute numbers and as a population-adjusted rate, according to preliminary year-end data from the city’s health department.

80% of Grocery Food in US Contain Ingredients Banned In Other Countries

According to the new book Rich Food, Poor Food, ingredients commonly found in up to 80 percent of all pre-packaged foods on grocers shelves in the U.S. have been banned in other countries. As alarming as such information is, food safety outlook becomes even bleaker when we consider other banned and toxic food items.

In the book, authors Mira and Jason Calton provide a list of banned ingredients which they term "Banned Bad Boys" as well as the countries which have banned them. Among the items is Olestra - commonly used in low/no-fat snack foods and known to cause serious gastrointestinal issues - which has been banned in the United Kingdom and Canada.

Worse is brominated vegetable oil, a substance found in Mountain Dew and Fresca which has been banned in more than 100 countries. As the authors state, brominated vegetable oil "has been linked to basically every form of thyroid disease - from cancer to autoimmune diseases - known to man."

Breaking: CDC whistleblower’s contact censored

The journal Translational Neurodegeneration has removed Brian Hooker’s analysis of the vaccine-autism connection from its website—after having published it.

CDC whistleblower William Thompson contacted Hooker months ago to tell him that yes, the CDC had committed egregious fraud in 2004, when it gave the MMR vaccine a free pass.

Based on information Thompson sent him, plus FOIA requests, Hooker put together a re-analysis of the 2004 CDC data and concluded: the vaccine causes great harm; there is a connection between the vaccine and autism; and African-American male babies are at a 300% increased risk of autism from the vaccine.

This is what the journal Translational Neurodegeneration published—and this is what it took down and censored this morning.

Measles-mumps-rubella vaccination timing and autism among young african american boys: a reanalysis of CDC data

A significant number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder suffer a loss of previously-acquired skills, suggesting neurodegeneration or a type of progressive encephalopathy with an etiological basis occurring after birth. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectof the age at which children got their first Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine on autism incidence. This is a reanalysis of the data set, obtained from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC), used for the Destefano et al. 2004 publication on the timing of the first MMR vaccine and autism diagnoses.

Mercury/vaccines/autism: more fraud at the CDC

Tommy’s thrust, of course, was to exonerate mercury in vaccines and give these vaccines a free pass. Which he eventually did, in the final version of a study published three times.

In the Simpsonwood transcript, the real explosion comes on page 43. No one, to my knowledge, has emphasized this enough.

On page 43, a Dr. Rapin asks Tommy a basic question:

“How did they make these diagnoses [of neuro-developmental delay, aka neurological damage, in the children you’re tracking]?”

Tommy replies: “What I am presenting to you now is just the results of the automated data. That means I don’t know anything about how these diagnoses were made…[but later in my presentation we’ll be in a] better position, at least for some of the outcomes [of neuro-developmental delay] to tell you how they were diagnosed.”

Translation. The whole presentation has just fallen apart.

On a Budget? Pink Slime is Back to Save You Money!

Remember how horrified people were to learn of the ammonia-soaked pink slime in their ground beef and fast-food burgers?

It was so bad that one company, Beef Products Inc., was forced to close several plants and file for bankruptcy after the backlash in 2012. Incidentally, BPI filed a 1.2 billion dollar lawsuit is pending against ABC for breaking the story that more than 70% of grocery store ground beef contained pink slime.

Well, in response to rising meat costs, it’s back. (Did it ever actually leave?) BPI will be manufacturing the slaughterhouse remnant product at a new plant in Kansas, and Cargill Inc. is also producing the slime.

Of course, neither company is marketing the product under the name “pink slime.” BPI calls it “lean finely textured beef” (LFTB) and Cargill calls it “finely textured beef.” That makes it sound almost fancy, doesn’t it?

CDC scientific fraud: an update on Dr. Poul Thorsen who authored fraudulent study 'disproving' vaccine-autism connection and stole millions of dollars

The very legitimacy of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a trustworthy safeguard of public health hangs in the balance as evidence continues to emerge about rampant deception, fraud and even money laundering within the agency. Specifically with regard to vaccines and autism, key players involved in the propaganda campaign to deny this link are now being exposed as liars working on behalf of the vaccine industry.

One such liar is Dr. Poul Thorsen, a Danish scientist who was indicted for stealing millions of dollars from the CDC and using it to cover up vaccine dangers. Thorsen, as you may recall, was heavily involved in producing a stream of fraudulent studies that supposedly "disproved" the now-evident link between vaccines and autism. The CDC has also continually cited Thorsen's studies as "evidence" that vaccines are safe, declaring the debate to be over in light of their findings.

The proposed submarine design would work by applying the concept of supercavitation – a method of speedy underwater travel that was first developed by the Soviets in the 60s, but that has only previously been fitted to torpedoes.

The tiny, pea sized pineal gland located in the center of the human brain has for ages been thought to be the seat of the soul, or the third eye, the organ which makes spiritual connection and spiritual experience possible. Prone to calcification from fluoridated water and other toxins in our food supply, many people are actively interested in detoxifying and de-calcifying their pineal gland, because they feel it helps bring them closer to spirit, contributing to an awakening of consciousness. Exercises and meditations aimed at activating the third eye do work, and for people who have experienced the rush of cosmic energy that is available when the mind’s eye is wide open, there is no other spiritual experience that compares to it.

But when you really think about it, cravings are an interesting thing that can be quite dangerous. Cravings have thrown people off of their diets, have made it difficult to eat and live healthily, and have helped to propel the obesity epidemic. Giving into a craving now and then might not seem like a lot, but it can add up!

Ebola Devastates West Africa: Revenues Down; Markets Not Functioning; Projects Canceled; GDP Plunges 4%

The market, in its infinitely rigged wisdom, has concluded that the worst Ebola outbreak in history is a non-event, even though it has put virtually all of western Africa on indefinite lockdown, and as Reuters reports, is "causing enormous damage to West African economies and draining budgetary resources." In fact the damage from Ebola to Africa is already so acute, it is expected that economic growth in the region will plunge by up to 4 percent as foreign businessmen leave and projects are canceled, according to the African Development Bank president said. Revenues are down, foreign exchange levels are down, markets are not functioning, airlines are not coming in, projects are being canceled, business people have left - that is very, very damaging," African Development Bank (AfDB) chief Donald Kaberuka said in an interview late on Tuesday.

Monsanto and Ukraine

Finally, a little-known aspect of the crisis in Ukraine is receiving some international attention. On July 28, the California-based Oakland Institute released a report revealing that the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), under terms of their $17 billion loan to Ukraine, would open that country to genetically-modified (GM) crops and genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) in agriculture. The report is entitled “Walking on the West Side: the World Bank and the IMF in the Ukraine Conflict.” [1]

In late 2013, the then president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, rejected a European Union association agreement tied to the $17 billion IMF loan, whose terms are only now being revealed. Instead, Yanukovych chose a Russian aid package worth $15 billion plus a discount on Russian natural gas. His decision was a major factor in the ensuing deadly protests that led to his ouster from office in February 2014 and the ongoing crisis.

This Is Outrageous — Toxic Decayed Meat Being Sold As “Fresh”

This toxic practice makes seriously decayed meat look fresh for weeks and is banned in many countries including the European Union and Japan.

Many consumers are unaware that over 70% of beef and chicken in the United States and Canada is treated with poisonous carbon monoxide gas and the FDA allows it, despite the known public health risks.

A bill was introduced in Congress that would require the labeling of meat that has been treated with carbon monoxide but it was never enacted and the topic was swept under the rug entirely. [Bill: H.R. 3115 (110th) introduced on July 19, 2007; never enacted.]

And, as reported by The Washington Post, in hundreds of cases the FDA is not even aware of the existence of new additives, which can include chemical preservatives, thickening agents and flavorings, interviews and records have shown.

"We simply do not have the information to vouch for the safety of many of these chemicals," said Michael Taylor, the FDA's deputy commissioner for food, in an interview with the Post.

CDC scientists who conspired to commit scientific fraud in order to obscure the link between the MMR vaccine and autism knew that they might have been engaged in criminal acts as far back as 2002, documents now show. (Journalists and bloggers, please cite Natural News as the source for this investigative story which the mainstream media has utterly refused to cover. Alternative media is now the only remaining free press operating in America that isn't controlled by corporate or government interests.)

Media conspiracy to bury CDC whistleblower story protects vaccine makers at the expense of human life

One of the most extraordinary stories in American history is unfolding before our eyes today as the entire mainstream media conspires to suppress and bury the true story of a CDC scientist blowing the whistle on runaway scientific fraud at the agency. To date, not a single mainstream media source has published even one article on this historic turning point in medical history, where Americans learned that the CDC had been deliberately lying to them about the supposed safety of MMR vaccines.

One media source, CNN, has gone to tremendous lengths to censor citizen journalists who attempted to bring this story to light.

CDC whistleblower is just the tip of the iceberg

On January 15, 2009, the NY Review of Books published Dr. Angell’s devastating assessment of medical literature:

“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.” —(Marcia Angell, MD, “Drug Companies and Doctors: A story of Corruption.” NY Review of Books, Jan. 15, 2009.)

Here is another quote of a similar nature, also published in the NY Review of Books (May 12, 2001, Helen Epstein, “Flu Warning: Beware of Drug Companies”):

“Six years ago, John Ioannidis, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Ioannina School of Medicine in Greece, found that nearly half of published articles in scientific journals contained findings that were false.”

CDC whistleblower is just the tip of the iceberg

Jon Rappoport
Activist Post

William Thompson, the CDC whistleblower, has yet to step into the light and make a full and definitive statement about the CDC concealing MMR-vaccine dangers.

Mothers of autistic children are now preparing a class-action suit against the CDC for covering up the MMR vaccine-autism connection. They will undoubtedly want Thompson as a witness.

He can talk now or talk later.

The public at large still has blind faith in “medical experts” and the truth of published studies.

Fraud at the CDC? A study that was intentionally distorted to give a pass to a toxic and highly dangerous vaccine? What? How could that be?

Well, here’s a medical expert. For 20 years, she had a front-row seat that very few doctors or researchers ever occupy. Thousands of medical studies arrived at her desk. She was a “queen of judgment.”...

Medical Marijuana Laws Correlate with Fewer Prescription Drug Deaths

A study published Aug. 25th in JAMA Internal Medicine suggests that in states where medical marijuana laws are in place, there are 25 percent fewer deaths from overdoses of painkillers.

“We think that people with chronic pain may be choosing to treat their pain with marijuana rather than with prescription painkillers, in states where this is legal,” said lead author Dr. Marcus Bachhuber, a researcher with the Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion at the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was used to look, state by state, at the prescription painkiller overdose death rate between 1999 and 2010. (Deaths from prescription painkiller overdoses have risen over the past two decades, including a 118 percent increase between 1999 and 2011.) These findings were then correlated against 13 states that had medical marijuana laws at that time.

States with medical pot see nearly 25 percent fewer fatal prescription drug overdoses

A new study reveals that states where medical marijuana is legal experience around one-quarter fewer deaths from prescription drug overdoses, signaling perhaps a small victory for proponents of pot’s alleged pain-alleviating powers.

According to the study published in the latest installment of JAMA Internal Medicine, the 13 states in America that have legalized the use of medical marijuana for patients with valid prescriptions see a 24.8 percent lower annual opioid overdose rate that those where weed can’t legally be offered to treat ailments.

Toxic Decayed Meat Being Sold As “Fresh

After reading this you may never trust Congress or the FDA again, let alone corporate chain grocery stores. This toxic practice makes seriously decayed meat look fresh for weeks and is banned in many countries including the European Union and Japan. Many consumers are unaware that over 70% of beef and chicken in the United States and Canada is treated with poisonous carbon monoxide gas and the FDA allows it, despite the known public health risks.

A bill was introduced in Congress that would require the labeling of meat that has been treated with carbon monoxide but it was never enacted and the topic was swept under the rug entirely. [Bill: H.R. 3115 (110th) introduced on July 19, 2007; never enacted.]

This practice makes meat appear and smell fresh even when contaminated with harmful bacteria such as Clostridium botulinum, Salmonella, Campylobacter, and E-coli 0157:H7

U.S. Government to Grow Over 1,400 Pounds of Cannabis in 2014

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced Tuesday that it is drastically increasing the amount of cannabis the federal government plans to grow this year for research purposes; from 46.3 pounds, to 1,433 pounds.

Yeah . . . for pure research (because they really need to do more of that).

Yellowstone Super Volcano Even Bigger Than Previously Thought

Smith and his students use seismographs to map the magma pool underneath Yellowstone’s volcano, and satellites to determine how much the land swells, or bulges. They found that the magma is much larger than they originally believed.

As he sits on his porch in Moose, underneath the towering beauty of the Grand Tetons, Smith explains just how big the magma body is.

“Before we thought it was 20 kilometers long. We discovered just this year that it’s two and a half times bigger. Two point five times. It’s 90 kilometers long.”

Next stop Pluto! Nasa spacecraft crosses Neptune's orbit in record time on trip to the outer edges of solar system

The piano-sized spacecraft, which launched in January 2006, reached Neptune’s orbit in just eight years and eight months.

That beats the previous time to travel this distance of nearly 2.75 billion miles (4.4 billion km) taken by Voyager 2 by nearly four years.

And in a rather fitting tribute to its predecessor, the milestone comes on the 25th anniversary of Voyager 2’s encounter with Neptune on 25 August 1989.

What is the Difference Between the Democrat NationalCommitee and the Communist Party USA?

In America, conservatives have always been acutely aware of Communism, but the 47% who still approve of Barack Obama and those who are members of the Democratic Party are the dupes of those whose quest for tyrannical power permits them to tell the most appalling lies, particularly about Republicans.

The Democratic Party is so politically corrupt and devoid of moral standards that it is currently engaged in seeking to harm potential Republican presidential candidates with an utterly bogus indictment of Texas Governor Perry and the slanders leveled against New Jersey Governor Christie. It is a tactic of those who fear a loss at the ballot box.
