EU parliament votes to re-approve glyphosate despite ‘concerns about carcinogenicity’

The European Parliament has backed a re-authorization of a pesticide believed to be carcinogenic for another 7 years, despite a widespread protest campaign calling for a full ban instead of a downsized “compromise” deal.
The weedkiller glyphosate is to be given market approval for another seven years, instead of 15 as originally requested, while its use should be limited to professionals only, the European Parliament said in a non-binding resolution approved on Wednesday. The body also advised the chemical shouldn’t be used in public locations, such as parks and playgrounds.

Despite coming up with the approval, the resolution, passed by 374 votes to 225, with 102 abstentions, still noted “concerns about the carcinogenicity and endocrine disruptive properties of the herbicide glyphosate, used in many farm and garden applications.”

The Green Party rioting for a ban said European governments and the European Commission are obliged to take into account the concerns raised by MEPs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congratulations, EU Parliament, for the record number of cancer cases we will see in Europe from this approval going forward.

Monsanto must have met their price; knowing that this product has been incontrovertably proven to be carcinogenic, yet allowing its use for another 7 years?!?

This is pure madness, driven by occult money, or blackmail.

Glyphosate’s carcinogenic potential has been known to Monsanto and the US EPA from long term animal experiments since the early 1980s but repeatedly dismissed. This has resulted in two decades of people and planet being poisoned by glyphosate herbicides on a misclassification of ‘noncarcinogenic’ that has allowed the manufacturer to claim it is ‘safe’ and perpetrating many other falsehoods to promote its ubiquitous and liberal use Dr Mae-Wan Ho and Prof Peter T. Saunders A fully referenced version will be available in an updated version of Banishing Glyphosate Sign the Independent Scientists Manifesto on Glyphosate here: http://www.i-sis.org.uk/Independent_Scientists_Manifesto_on_Glyphosate.php Introduction The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of the World Health Organization (WHO), has released the results of its year-long assessment of five organophosphate insecticides and herbicides. In this, the 112th study into potentially carcinogenic agents, it has reclassified glyphosate in Group 2A ‘probably carcinogenic to humans’ [1, 2]. This category is used [1] “when there is limited evidence of carcinogenicity in humans and sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals.” Previously, the US Environment Protection Agency (EPA), which last reviewed glyphosate in 1993, classified glyphosate in Group E ‘noncarcinogenic’ [3]. Similarly, a 2013 review by the German Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) conducted on behalf of the European Union did not recommend a carcinogen classification of either 2A or 2B (‘possibly carcinogenic’); though that review is mired in controversy, having been largely conducted by a consortium of chemical companies including Monsanto [4] (Scandal of Glyphosate Re-assessment in Europe, SiS 63). Monsanto has called on IARC to retract its assessment [5]. But Aaron Blair, scientist emeritus at the National Cancer Institute who chaired the 17 member Working Group of the IARC that carried out the assessment, robustly defended the decision, saying it is “appropriately based on current science” [6]. The IARC experts in the Working Group were selected for their expertise and most importantly, the absence of real or apparent conflicts of interest. Following the protocol required by the IARC, the Working Group considered only “reports that have been published or accepted for publication in the openly available scientific literature” as well as “data from governmental reports that are publicly available”. Notably, Blair told a journalist there were good grounds to declare that glyphosate definitely causes cancer [7]. But “the epidemiologic data was a little noisy.” While several studies suggested a link, another study in the US of farmers in Iowa and North Carolina did not. There had been a similar inconsistency in epidemiological studies of benzene now universally acknowledged as a carcinogen, Blair added. What Blair did not mention, for example, was that crucial evidence of carcinogenicity in animal experiments had existed at least since 1981 but successively dismissed as documented in EPA’s own archives (see below). In the meantime, US government data show steep rise in dozens of chronic diseases including cancers closely tracking the rapid increase in glyphosate use and the adoption of genetically modified (GM) crops, of which USA is the top producer by far [8]. In Argentina, the third producer of GM crops, where the use of pesticides including glyphosate has increased more than 8.5-fold since the introduction of GM crops 20 years ago, non-government organizations and doctors have been documenting rising incidences of cancers and birth defects among farmers and their families and others exposed to glyphosate spraying (see Chapter 3 of [9] Banishing Glyphosate, ISIS special report). Taking these and other additional findings into proper account would surely have been sufficient to classify glyphosate as a carcinogen. Asked to comment on the IARC’s reclassification, Fernando Manas, a member of the Genetics and Environmental Mutagenesis (GEMA) Group at the National University of Río Cuarto in Cordoba, Argentina, who has investigated the effect of agrochemicals for the past 9 years, confirmed the link between glyphosate and genetic damage, which leads to cancer and a higher risk of spontaneous abortions and birth defects in the new born, and said that the classification by IARC-WHO is a consequence of the growing scientific evidence generated by independent investigators. Furthermore, he pointed out that [10] this evidence, which has been deliberately ignored until now, means that “millions of gallons of herbicide with carcinogenic potential have been used according to regulations designed for a virtually harmless substance.” For two decades, entire populations were “subjected” to chronic pesticide exposures “based on criteria developed by the same companies that produce and market” agrochemicals.

NAVY VET MAKES THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE — SETS HIMSELF ON FIRE TO PROTEST THE VA’S LACK OF HEALTHCARE

Doused in gasoline, a former chief petty officer stood outside a Veterans Affairs (VA) outpatient clinic when he lit himself on fire and eventually died nine hours later. His wife recently confirmed that her husband was upset with the inadequate care that he had been receiving at the VA facility shortly before his suicide. A seven-year veteran of the U.S. Navy, Charles Ingram III walked nine miles from his home, past an American Legion park and a military veteran memorial, before arriving at the parking lot of the VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic around 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 19. While standing on a grass lawn near the clinic, the 51-year-old poured several gallons of gasoline on himself before committing self-immolation.

Quantum Extremeophiles Discovered Thriving on Radiation

"Life finds a way." Thanks to a research time involving Princeton, Indiana University, and others, that isn't just a sappy Disney quote - it's an incredible fact. They found extremophile bacteria buried over two miles into solid rock, where the life-giving energy of the sun never reaches - the energy every other species on Earth depends on. Instead they found their own power source - radiation!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the search for extraterrestrial life, scientists are often blinded by a certain species chauvinism. They assume (probably because of science fiction movies and TV shows) that life means life as we know it, water and carbon based. But as the extremophiles on our own world prove, life evolves to fit the environment.

I keep hearing and reading about how "lucky" we are that Earth is in the perfect place for life to evolve, but they have it backwards. We are comfortable on Earth because we evolved here. Searching for Earth-like planets on which to search for life is limiting. Life will be found in conditions we would consider lethal, based on chemistry we would consider toxic. We may not even recognize it as life at first glance. See VIKING, LIFE ON MARS, AND DR. GILBERT LEVIN

Fluoride Officially Classified as a Neurotoxin in World’s Most Prestigious Medical Journal

The movement to remove industrial sodium fluoride from the world’s water supply has been growing in recent years, with evidence coming out against the additive from several sources.

Now, a report from the world’s oldest and most prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, has officially classified fluoride as a neurotoxin — in the same category as arsenic, lead and mercury.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember when the fluoride issue first came up, and the government propagandists handled it the way they always handle public opposition to policy, by trying to make anyone who was concerned look like a kook, as seen in films of the day such as "In like Flint", and "Doctor Strangelove."

And here we are, years later, finding out that the people concerned about what was coming out of their faucets, the people the establishment media made such fun of, were right all along.

Just keep that in mind when you see people being ridiculed for doubting human-caused global warming, or the official story about .... anything.

Colorado GOP Chairman Steve House is getting threats from Donald Trump supporters

This was predictable.

Emails obtained by ABC News sent to Colorado GOP Chairman Steve House tell him to “quit whining” about all the threatening calls and emails he’s receiving. Another email tells him to “pray” he makes it to Cleveland, and instructs him to support Trump or “you are done.” One email provided to ABC News tells House to hide his family members.

“This does not have to do with Trump. This has everything to do with “the people” having a chance to vote,” one email sent today read. “Stop being a j-----f and admit that the residents of Colorado SHOUT [to] have the chance to vote rather than a slim minority telling the residents of CO who they have to vote for. That is the real story here. Quit whining about all the calls and email you’re getting. It’s your job. If you don’t want it – RESIGN.”

The Incredibly Sexist Ads Big Pharma Has Used Peddle Pills to Women

Ads hawking hormone replacement therapy to spare women the living decay of old age and failed ovaries did not end until fairly recently. Wyeth (who made the most popular hormone drugs) ran high-budget TV ads in the early 2000s, with model Lauren Hutton telling the viewer that aging and loss of hormones was terrible—and voluntary. Menopause, said the Hutton ads, “contributes” to heart disease and other “age-related diseases,” but hormone replacement therapy would prevent diminished memory, loss of sight and even tooth-loss. According to these ads, women didn’t lose hormones because they aged; they aged because they lost hormones.

If hormone replacement therapy was mostly hype or barely worked, that would be one thing. But more then ten years ago, hormone replacement therapy was found to cause most of the age-related afflictions it was supposed to prevent.

The toxic takeaway containers: Fast food lovers are exposed to 40% higher levels of chemicals that are known to disrupt hormones and have been linked to autism

The study showed that fast food lovers are at greater risk from phthalates - a group of chemicals used to soften and increase the flexibility of plastic and vinyl - often found in packaging.

Phthalates have been banned from children's toys and products such as teething rings and soft books because of their potential toxic effects.

The chemicals are known to disrupt hormones and have been implicated in several illnesses and condition including asthma to autism.

The new study, published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, is one of the first to look at fast-food consumption and exposure to phthalates.

Lead author Assistant Professor Ami Zota, of Milken Institute School of Public Health in the United States, said: 'People who ate the most fast food had phthalate levels that were as much as 40 per cent higher.

'Statins DO cause muscle pain - I've seen it first hand': Physiotherapist says the drugs affect some of her patients so much they're barely able to move

In the UK, seven million people now take the drug, which lowers 'bad' LDL cholesterol in the body, reducing the risk of heart disease, heart attacks and stroke.

And on the ground I see the direct effects - including patients suffering muscle pains so severe it stops them being able to move.

I'd estimate around 40 per cent of people I see who are taking statins have aches and pains that might be partly due to their medication.

And when they complain to their GP, their concerns are often ignored or dismissed.

Censorship of medical truth reaches fever pitch as corrupt medical establishment attempts to silence growing number of films and books about cancer and vaccines

The censorship of medical truth has reached a fever pitch as books, films and documentaries are now being maliciously attacked and censored in a desperate ploy to prevent the public from learning the truth about cancer, vaccines, antidepressant drugs and more.

In this podcast, I explain why censorship of medical truth has reached a level of insanity and criminality that we've never seen before in modern society. The entire medical establishment -- just like the political establishment -- is totally rigged against the People. And censorship is just one of the weapons the medical establishment uses to prevent people from getting well by making sure they stay sick, diseased and "revenue generating" for Big Pharma.

LONDON FILM FESTIVAL PULLS FILM ABOUT LONG TERM SURVIVORS AFTER PHARMA-AIDS CHARITIES THREATEN PROTEST

London, UK. LIFF, the London Independent Film Festival (http://www.liff.org/), has controversially axed its screening of the film Positive Hell, scheduled for April 17, in a move described by the film’s writer and narrator, Joan Shenton, as “blatant censorship” and “the latest case of ‘no platforming'”.

This morning, Ms Shenton announced that she had been contacted by LIFF director, Erich Schultz, to say that he had “pulled” the film after four HIV/AIDS charities had threatened protests at the screening venue and at festival sponsors’ premises “if we [LIFF] don’t comply”. Schultz also said he had received “over twenty protest letters”.

The axing has some echoes of Robert De Niro’s decision to remove the anti-vaccinaton documentary Vaxxed from the Tribeca film festival in New York at the end of March (http://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/mar/27/robert-de-niro-pulls-vacci...), though there is no suggestion that the two films are in any way similar.

That's three out of four.

And do you know why? Because they know of its devastating effects on the body and the immune system, and they are well aware that chemotherapy generally has a low overall success rate. And yet, this ineffective treatment is prescribed for just about every cancer there is.

A “perfect storm” of conditions during the 2014-15 flu season may have contributed to the lowest effectiveness of the annual influenza vaccine that Canadian researchers have observed in more than a decade of monitoring.

Generally, getting inoculated reduces the risk of contracting influenza by about 40 to 60 per cent. But last year’s vaccine was found over all to be less than 10 per cent effective in preventing cases of flu – and in some people may have actually helped increase the risk of getting sick.

Atrocious State of Cancer Treatment in the U.S.

Being diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a type of brain tumor, is considered a death sentence by modern medicine.

Despite a decades-long war on cancer, and the “most advanced” treatments known to 21st century oncologists, people who develop this aggressive, fast-growing cancer are given a prognosis of about 15 months to live — if they’re lucky.

Aggressive treatment, including surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, is often started, even though oncologists know it won’t cure the disease.

In a statement, UnitedHealth said that "the company is evaluating the viability of the insurance exchange product segment and will determine during the first half of 2016 to what extent it can continue to serve the public exchange markets in 2017."

Needless to say, the implications for Obamacare - which had seen a surge in problems over the past year - were dire: As Bloomberg reported at the time, "a pull-back would deal a significant blow to President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement. While UnitedHealth has been slower than some of its rivals to sell Obamacare policies since new government-run marketplaces for the plans opened in late 2013, the announcement may indicate that other insurers are struggling."

Rise Of The Independent Microfactory Could Decentralize Multinational Conglomerates

By Brian Berletic

General Electric (GE) in cooperation with opensource distributed automaker LocalMotors, MakerBot, and several other names in digital fabrication, opened FirstBuild, a microfactory that crowd-sourced design ideas, prototyped and manufactured them in small batches, before using GE’s mass production and marketing power to bring them to the international market.

As of 2016, over 1,000 ideas have been created there.

One potential advantage of this business model is that it allows large conglomerates struggling against growing competition worldwide to cut down on R&D and marketing.

Why Did Houston’s Mayor Prevent VAXXED From Being Screened?

By Derrick Broze

...Activist Post contacted Janice Evans at the Mayor's Office and was able to confirm that the Mayor did not directly stop the film from being shown, but did ask that it not be screened at the Houston International Film Festival. “The mayor did not halt the showing of the movie. He asked that it not be included in the lineup because the film festival has received city grant funding,” Janice Evans told AP. “It is contradictory for the city to provide financial assistance to an event that is disseminating an anti-vaccination message that is counter to the work our health department does.” I pressed the Mayor’s Office further...

“Good People Don’t Smoke Marijuana” — Clueless Senator Just Vilified 50% of All Americans

By Justin Gardner

As cannabis legalization sweeps the nation, a small group of U.S. senators held a desperate anti-pot circus show this week where they showcased the absurdity of cannabis prohibition. The hearing was dubbed “Is the Department of Justice Adequately Protecting the Public From the Impact of State Recreational Marijuana Legalization?”

Chuck Grassley and Dianne Feinstein, the two oldest members of the Senate, hosted the event and invited other prohibition crusaders such as Nebraska attorney general Doug Peterson, who attempted to sue Colorado for being a drug cartel. Sen. Jeff Sessions also attended and provided perhaps the most laughable statement of the hearing when he said, “good people don’t smoke marijuana.”...

Keep Your Eyes On Africa’s Latest Virus Outbreak

By Maggie Martin

Mosquitoes are once again in the news … and so are vaccines. Angola, Africa is the site of the latest “outbreak,” this time yellow fever. So far, at least 225 people have died, with over 1,600 reported cases. The outbreak is of particular concern as it first took hold in the nation’s capital of 6 million people, Luanda, in December of last year.

Yellow fever – similar to Zika, chikunguya and dengue – is carried by the now globally dreaded Aedes aegypti mosquito. Unlike the knowingly inflated numbers of the mass hysteria that surrounded Zika, yellow fever has long been recognized as a source of mass casualties in the 40+ countries where it has appeared, resulting in tens of thousands of deaths annually.

While the illness and deaths unfolding across Angola are horrific for those currently in yellow fever’s path, it is notable that the mainstream media is pushing the apparently much larger question: Could yellow fever return to the USA? ...

'Why cannabis SHOULD be prescribed to patients': Drug can help with conditions from chronic pain to cancer - with few side effects, leading doctor argues

There is considerable evidence for cannabis being effective to treat a variety of conditions.

Certainly quite good evidence exists showing it is effective in helping patients with spasticity.

Indeed a cannabis product – Sativex – is prescribed legally to patients with multiple sclerosis if their spasticity has become resistant to other drugs.

It has also been shown to reduce the number of times they need to empty their bladder.

However, cannabis has also shown to be useful in chronic pain, particularly non-cancer pain and neuropathic pain, which is caused by damage to the brain or nervous system.

There are a whole variety of other conditions in which evidence shows it can be useful, for example managing the nausea that comes with chemotherapy and improving sleep.

It can be used as an appetite stimulant for patients in debilitating conditions, such as those with HIV.

Capitalism vs. Free Enterprise

Capitalism gives special government-supported benefits to capital and those with capital (wealthy individuals, families and business entities).
This is the opposite of socialism, which promotes special government-supported benefits to those without capital—the proletariat, as Karl Marx put it.
In contrast to both capitalism and socialism, free enterprise establishes good laws and government policies that treat the rich, middle and poor the same.
Some people may believe that this is the system we live under in the United States today—that the law treats all the same.
Such an assumption is incorrect.

Little Known Fact: Police Drug Kits Test Positive With Just About Anything

If you’ve ever found yourself on the wrong side of the law, there’s a good chance that you’ve encountered a field drug test before. It’s what the police use to test any suspicious looking substances you might have in your possession to see if they’re illegal drugs. And they are of course admissible in a court of law. What the cops won’t tell you however, is that these drug test kits are incredibly fallible, and there are plenty of innocent substances that can cause them to produce a false positive.

Several years ago the U.S. Marijuana Policy Project did a demonstration with the kits that the police use to put people in jail. The results were both enlightening and horrifying.

FLASHBACK - SSRI Stories

SSRI Stories is a collection of over 6,000 stories that have appeared in the media (newspapers, TV, scientific journals) in which prescription drugs were mentioned and in which the drugs may be linked to a variety of adverse outcomes including violence.

This updated site includes the stories from the previous site and new ones from 2011 to date. We have used a new “category” classification system on the new stories. We are working back through previously SSRI Stories to bring them into the new classification system. In the meantime use the search box in the upper right column to search through both the old and the new stories.

SSRI Stories focuses primarily on problems caused by selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), of which Prozac (fluoxetine) was the first. For more see About SSRIs. Other medications prescribed as antidepressants that fit the “nightmares” theme of the collected stories are sometimes included.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But every time one of these medications sends someone into a murderous rage, they never mention the medication; they blame the guns.

The first blood tests were done on Jan and Ineke, a couple whose been living next to the plant for 32 years. The high concentration of C8 – a toxic substance used to produce Teflon, banned after being classified as very dangerous in 2012 – means that the two and thousands of other residents in the area face significant health risks due to the factory’s emissions.

It has been cancelled, and there was no press release about the film…that was scheduled for today, but after very threatening calls late yesterday (Monday) from high Houston Government officials (the first and only time they have ever called in 49 years) – we had no choice but to drop the film,” states Todd’s email to Diaz.

Keystone Pipeline Shut Down After it Begins Leaking in South Dakota

Gov. Snyder faces racketeering suit over Flint water crisis

The lawsuit accuses Snyder and others of hatching a “wrongful scheme” to reduce Flint’s indebtedness by stopping the impoverished city from buying treated Lake Huron water from Detroit, instead of “invoking time tested, well-honed federal bankruptcy protections for restructuring the debts of municipalities.”

Snyder spokesman Ari Adler declined comment on the suit.

State officials have acknowledged erroneously advising Flint officials not to treat the river water with anti-corrosive chemicals, and that this enabled lead to leach from aging pipes and reach some homes, businesses and schools. Testing last fall showed that levels of lead in the blood of some children in the city rose after the water systems were switched.

Monsanto's Willing Executioners

Bt-infused crops have the Bacillus thuringiensis toxin built directly into the plant. That toxic protein kills hungry insects. But, like Roundup-doused weeds, insects are developing resistance to Bt crops. Whether it's lice in Texas, bacteria in India or superweeds choking American farms, resistance to human-made poison is literally a textbook response by Mother Nature.

Now this predictable evolutionary response is casting a pall over the agribusiness model.

The Union of Concerned Scientists pointed out that the superweed "plague" overshadows "60 million acres of U.S. cropland" and is "wreaking environmental havoc, driving up farmers' costs and prompting them to resort to more toxic weed-killers." Even worse, scientists at the International Survey of Herbicide Resistant Weeds found "467 unique cases of herbicide resistant weeds globally" and that weeds evolved resistance to "160 different herbicides" in "86 crops in 66 countries."

Southern California braces for summer blackouts due to Porter Ranch gas leak

ate officials warn that Southern California could face as many as 14 days of scheduled blackouts this summer because of depleted reserves of natural gas caused by the massive leak in Aliso Canyon.

The canyon in the hills above Porter Ranch is a crucial gas storage facility, supplying 17 power plants in the Los Angeles Basin. But the four-month leak that began in October left the facility at one-fifth of its capacity and new injections of gas have been prohibited until all of its wells have passed comprehensive tests.

Officials estimate the storage facility won’t be back on line for months, leaving local power plants without a key source of natural gas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a classic example of what happens when infrastructure maintenance is ignored over a long period of time; the ensuing problems become far harder, and far more costly to fix.

NASA Nearly Crashed the Vomit Comet on a Reckless Trip to Greenland

In the first instance, NASA officials pressured the crew to transport a giant wooden engine from Houston to Costa Rica as a favor to a former astronaut, according to two of the crew members. Although the mission was successful, NASA seemed to deliberately avoid publicizing the flight.

On another occasion that year, the crew was asked to deliver Navy cargo to Greenland even though members of the crew said the trip was unsafe, resulting in a “near fatal crash,” according to documents from a NASA Inspector General investigation. Despite conducting an investigation, the agency says it never reviewed a video that was taken of the incident, and never contacted one of the crew members who was deemed the "principal witness."

But Tuesday’s result was not predestined—and it wasn’t just a series of unforced errors that made the Trump Train sputter. The Cruz team pulled off a singular organizing feat, corralling a sizable number of Christian pastors for last-minute endorsements that helped shore up his support among evangelical Christians.

Chemical added to hot dogs, sausage and bacon now being developed by USDA as deadly bait that poisons wild hogs to death... and you're EATING it for breakfast!

The chemical, known as sodium nitrite, is a cancer-causing "color fixer" and meat preservative added to processed meat products to give them a pink hue that consumers mistake for being "fresh." When sodium nitrite combines with the hydrochloric acid (HCl) found in stomach acid, it forms cancer-causing nitrosamines. These nitrosamines go on to directly promote pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer, leukemia, brain tumors and other cancers throughout the body -- facts that I have been warning readers about for over a decade. Sodium nitrite is the reason why processed meats drastically raise the risks of cancer, heart disease and diabetes.

The Pertussis Vaccine Lists Autism and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome as Serious Adverse Events on the Package Insert

I previously ran an article discrediting that argument. The pertussis vaccine by definition is not bactericidal — it does not kill bacteria. Therefore, vaccinated individuals can carry and transmit pertussis bacteria just the same as the unvaccinated. Public health officials either don’t know this or are being dishonest when they blame minor pertussis outbreaks on the unvaccinated. They could be carrying the germ themselves and personally transmitting it to the reporter when they plant these pseudo-scientific stories.

What else are they not telling you? I took a close look at the Sanofi Pasteur DTaP vaccine (Diphtheria and Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis Vaccine Adsorbed) which is licensed by the FDA as the primary series in infants and children.

Fashionable Algae Water Bottle Maintains Shape Until Empty, Then It Breaks Down

By Amanda Froelich

This innovative solution to plastic pollution will reduce the amount of waste piling up in landfills and swirling around in the oceans.

To say that plastic is a burden to the environment is an understatement. Every year, enough plastic is thrown “away” to circle the globe four times; however, the material takes approximately 1,000 years to break down. This means that while one might throw it in the trash, it’s either piling up in landfills, being swallowed by unsuspecting wildlife, or swirling in one of the huge garbage patches in the oceans...

My analysis of how a conformist film critic operates, starting with the basics, which of course involve mind control.

The World Wide Choice for Immunity Against Communicable Diseases: Homeoprophylaxis

By Catherine J Frompovich

Every day children and their families experience—plus suffer from, often for a lifetime—the adverse effects produced by vaccines, especially from multiple dose vaccinations received at two, four, and six months of age. That is neither an inflammatory nor a pejorative remark; it’s a bold face fact as confirmed by the CDC’s VAERS reporting system and over three BILLION U.S. dollars paid to complainants who filed vaccine damage claims that were adjudicated in favor of damaged vaccinees, or the families of decedents, by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.

Now, contrast the above with the effectiveness of Homeoprophylaxis...

Drug War is Crumbling: Town Converts Prison into Cannabis Grow Facility

By Justin Gardner

In our fight to end the drug war, there may be no greater symbolism than a prison being turned into a cannabis grow facility. That is likely to happen in Coalinga, where the city council voted 4-1 in favor of an ordinance to allow commercial cannabis cultivation at the empty Claremont Custody Center.

They also voted for ballot initiatives to let the citizens decide if the town should host cannabis dispensaries, and if all these operations should be taxed. Coalinga stands to join its fellow California town, Adelanto, in restoring freedom and medical advancement, as well as generating revenue...

Are Vaccines Such “Holy Cows” That They Can’t Be Condemned?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Vaccines cause the very diseases they are supposed to ‘immunize’ against. How’s that efficacious? It certainly is efficacious for vaccine makers’ financial interests, but certainly not for those who contract vaccine-induced polio or experience the adverse events associated with many vaccines, particularly the HPV ‘anti-cervical cancer’ vaccines, which are now given to young boys, who don’t have cervixes.

Before you cry “foul ball,” I know why they’re mandated for young boys. Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!

HEALTHCARE CEO TOLD NURSES TO FATALLY OVERDOSE PATIENTS TO INCREASE PROFIT

The investigation began in 2014, when Novus was facing allegations of offering services to patients who did not apply for them. Novus was also accused of collecting funds for “unnecessary” services and procedures. During the investigation, Harris’ underlying scheme was discovered. Text messages the CEO sent to employees revealed he regularly instructed nurses to overdose patients with medication, often morphine, to hasten people’s deaths.

“You need to make this patient go bye-bye,” read one text from the executive. “Find patients who would die within 24 hours,” Harris reportedly told other healthcare executives, according to the FBI’s affidavit.

The FBI alleges Harris “instructed a nurse to administer overdoses to three patients and directed another employee to increase a patient’s medication to four-times the maximum allowed.” Both the nurse and the other employee refused to carry out the orders.

Beware the tooth whitening kits that promise a Hollywood smile - it's like brushing your teeth with BLEACH

Trying for that Hollywood smile? Then beware – some teeth whitening kits contain dangerous levels of bleach.

The high prices charged by dentists mean many people are turning to kits supplied over the internet or are using untrained staff in beauty salons.

But trading standards officers warn the bleach levels are up to 300 per cent higher than the maximum legal limit for kits sold to the public.
