Nuclear waste piles up at hospitals and research centers

Does this warm your heart and make you feel comfy?

In BARNWELL, S.C. for years used radioactive materials from across the country have been trucked into the landfills in this poor rural town for permanent disposal!  Truckloads of low-level nuclear waste like rice-size radioactive seeds for treating cancer and pencil-thin nuclear tubes used in industrial gauges from most of the U.S. were taken to a rural South Carolina landfill sealed in concrete and buried.

I guess someone had to do it.

This all changed July 1 when the state of South Caroline finally cried Injun and stopped  this practice.

Now across America spent radioactive materials are piling up in hospital and research facility basements and locked closets.

Immune system replacement or death by own cells

Why does the immune systems of some middle aged women suddenly turn against turn against them? Why are middle-aged women most vulnerable?

One woman Bari Martz began gasping for breath, her fingers turned blue and her hands became clentched with her joints so stiffened that she couldn’t even open her hands.  Death could be a consequence if something radical did not happen quickly
Doctors stored her own stem cells from her blood.  They destroyed her original misguided immune system and infused her own cultured stem cells.

Now two years later Bari rejuvenated immune system is helping her lungs and joints continue to heal; their functioning is greatly improved.

Scleroderma was the diagnosis. It is one of a family of autoimmune disorders that causes the body’s immune system to begin destroying its own cells causing thickening skin, stiffening joints, destroying blood vessels, and sometimes causing death through kidney and lung failure.

“The notion that more immuno-suppression is better is somewhat logical,” says Dr. Ellen Goldmuntz of the National Institutes of Health, which is funding some of the research. “The question’s how best to do it.”

MSG -excitotoxins in kids food

“MSG is a cheap flavor enhancer found in almost all commercially prepared food. MSG excites your brain into thinking the food you’re eating tastes really great. The brain over produces dopamine, creating a drug rush that increases a sense of well being. MSG is highly addictiveso it stimulates appetitie and end up overeating. there it destroys brain cells.
MSG is derived from an amino acid, it can be added to foods and labeled ‘natural’ or ‘organic’. It’s very hard to find any canned or packaged soup, dried soup mixes, prepared meals, fast food, junk food, or Chinese food that does not contain MSG. It’s in prepared gravy, salad dressing, seasoning blends and mixes, canned beans, bullion cubes, broths, chili and stews. Stores that cater to the health conscious carry many of these MSG containing items.

Because the food buying public does not want to consume MSG, food processors have gone to extremes to be sure that you don’t know it is in their products, and this has been allowed by the FDA.

MSG listed on the label, because it is disguised. MSG is also called:

Hydrolyzed vegetable protein, autolyzed vegetable protein, textured vegetable protein, hydrolyzed yeast extract, autolyzed yeast extract, plant protein extract, sodium caseinate, calcium caseinate, yeast extract, textured whey protein, natural flavor.

Most processed food for children also contains high levels of MSG, such as canned or packaged spaghetti, alphabet soup and chicken noodle soup, microwavable cups, packaged dinners and much more.

A processed meal can raise the blood level of excitotoxins to a value proven in primates to destroy brain cells. A child’s brain is four times more sensitive to damage by excitotoxins than is the brain of an adult.

Use olives for beauty leave sharks in the sea

“Dr. Susan Lark, a popular Internet physician, promotes squalane – an ingredient found in shark liver oil – for its ability to help skin “maintain its moisture and elasticity.” But squalane can be obtained from a much more abundant source: olives.

Deep-sea sharks are some of the most vulnerable sharks in the world. They typically grow slowly, mature late in life and have only a few young during their long lives. As a result, deep-sea shark populations are at extreme risk from exploitation and recover very slowly.

Tell Dr. Lark she ought to leave deep-sea sharks alone. The health – and beauty – of our oceans depends on it.”

FTC sues herbal therapy companies

“The Federal Trade Commission charged five companies with making false and misleading claims for cancer cures and said Thursday that it has reached settlements with six others.

She said the agency, along with the Food and Drug Administration and Canadian authorities, is launching a consumer education campaign warning about bogus claims for cures.

The products the companies marketed include essiac teas and other herbal mixtures, laetrile, black salve — a corrosive ointment — and mushroom extracts.

In addition the agency wants to block reports on trials in other parts of the world, he said, because they might imply a claim

Of the complaints resolved by settlements, she said companies paid restitution ranging from $9,000 to $250,000.

The remaining five complaints of false and deceptive advertising will go before administrative law judges, she said.

Those cases are Omega Supply, San Diego, Calif.; Native Essence Herb Company, El Prado, N.M.; Daniel Chapter One, Portsmouth, R.I.; Gemtronics, Inc., Franklin, N.C., and Herbs for Cancer, Surprise, Ariz.”

Selling GMO animal +plants maybe soon

“GMO Super Chicken strutted a step closer to the dinner table. The government will start considering proposals to sell genetically engineered animals as food, a move that could lead to faster-growing fish, cattle that can resist mad cow disease or perhaps heart-healthier eggs laid by a new breed of chickens.

The rules will also apply to drugs and other medical materials from genetically engineered animals, a field with explosive potential.

U.S. supermarkets currently sell no meat from genetically engineered animals. But a Boston-area company called Aqua Bounty Technologies hopes to win approval next year for its faster-growing salmon and make the fish available by 2011. “It tastes just like any other farm-raised salmon,” said vice chairman Elliot Entis, who has sampled it”

Comment: Just because it looks like a chicken and just because it tastes like chicken does not mean the body with be healthy because it has been feed GMO chicken.The effects of GMO meats, plants and other products have not be tested on humans.”

"The Mother's Act" -Big Pharm is at it again!

“Big Pharma is pushing hard for passage of The Mothers Act, a bill that would require all pregnant women to be “screened” for depression and then drugged with patented antidepressant drugs. The bill is being reintroduced by Sen. Harry Reid, who is reportedly attempting to include it in a legislative package called the “Coburn Omnibus Bill.”

Antidepressants are linked to violent thoughts and suicidal behavior in expectant mothers and new moms. Rather than treating the root cause of maternal depression — nutritional deficiencies — the medical industry wants to put expectant mothers on dangerous psychotropic drugs that may impact the health of their newborns.

NaturalNews interviewed one mother who, after being forcefully put on antidepressant drugs, began to hallucinate murdering her newborn. When she sought help at the local hospital, they doubled her dose of SSRIs and had her arrested and held against her will. Later, once she realized the drugs were causing her violent thoughts, she stopped taking the drugs and her violent hallucinations vanished within days.

This woman, Amy Philo, founded UNITE (www.UniteForLife.org) and is organizing grassroots opposition to The Mothers Act in order to protect women (and their children) from mandatory medications with psych drugs.
Contact your Senators in Washington  and voice their opposition to The Mothers Act.

Letter of opposition to the Mothers Act

DON’T LET THE 110th CONGRESS BE RESPONSIBLE FOR INCREASING ANTIDEPRESSANT-RELATED BIRTH DEFECTS AND INFANT DEATHS.

DO NOT PASS THE MOTHERS ACT AS PART OF AN OMNIBUS PACKAGE.

The MOTHERS Act is a highly controversial bill, considering the growing public awareness that antidepressants have serious and even deadly side effects. This bill, if passed, will assuredly increase the number of pregnant women and new mothers being put on antidepressant drugs. There are already too many pregnant women being put on antidepressants evidenced by the FDA’s adverse reaction reports (MedWatch) listed below. This bill will assuredly increase the number of pregnant women and new mothers being prescribed antidepressants documented by the U.S. FDA to cause suicidal ideation, mania, worsening depression and birth defects. FDA’s MedWatch System (Adverse Drug Reactions) Already Has Overwhelming Evidence of Spontaneous Abortions, Premature Babies and Birth Defects from SSRI Antidepressants:

Doctors, other health care providers, pharmacists, lawyers and consumers filed the following adverse drug reaction reports with the FDA’s MedWatch system during 2004-2007 concerning pregnant women taking antidepressants (the most common and recommended treatment for women diagnosed with postpartum depression). In all the reports below, antidepressants were cited as the primary suspected drug to have caused the adverse reaction in pregnant women:

145 spontaneous abortions
150 premature babies
208 babies born with heart disease
218 babies born with defects

The FDA states that only 1-10% of side effects are even reported to their MedWatch database. Using a median range of 5% being reported, the actual number of pregnant women experiencing adverse reactions to antidepressant drugs is estimated as follows:

2,900 spontaneous abortions
3,000 premature births
4,160 babies born with heart disease
4,360 babies born with birth defects

The “Melanie Blocker-Stokes Postpartum Depression Research and Care Act,” also known as “The MOTHERS Act” was named after Melanie Stokes, a new mother who was subjected to a cocktail of psychiatric drugs and electroshock after being diagnosed with post-partum depression. It was only after she had been administered drugs documented by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to cause suicidal ideation that she committed suicide.

Do not allow the pharmaceutical interests to put new mothers and their unborn children at risk.

Do not pass the MOTHERS Act.
