Fasten Your Financial Seat Belt: Wall Street's Bailout Hustle -Part Two

'Goldman Sachs and other big banks aren't just pocketing the trillions we gave them to rescue the economy - they're re-creating the conditions for another crash'

by MATT TAIBBI

'The only reason such apathy exists, however, is because there's still a widespread misunderstanding of how exactly Wall Street "earns" its money, with emphasis on the quotation marks around "earns." The question everyone should be asking, as one bailout recipient after another posts massive profits — Goldman reported $13.4 billion in profits last year, after paying out that $16.2 billion in bonuses and compensation — is this:

In an economy as horrible as ours, with every factory town between New York and Los Angeles looking like those hollowed-out ghost ships we see on History Channel documentaries like Shipwrecks of the Great Lakes, where in the hell did Wall Street's eye-popping profits come from, exactly? Did Goldman go from bailout city to $13.4 billion in the black because, as Blankfein suggests, its "performance" was just that awesome? A year and a half after they were minutes away from bankruptcy, how are these assholes not only back on their feet again, but hauling in bonuses at the same rate they were during the bubble?

The answer to that question is basically twofold: They raped the taxpayer, and they raped their clients.

The bottom line is that banks like Goldman have learned absolutely nothing from the global economic meltdown. In fact, they're back conniving and playing speculative long shots in force — only this time with the full financial support of the U.S. government. In the process, they're rapidly re-creating the conditions for another crash, with the same actors once again playing the same crazy games of financial chicken with the same toxic assets as before.'

Don't Worry, Be Happy! Positive Emotions Protect Against Heart Disease



'People who are usually happy, enthusiastic and content are less likely to develop heart disease than those who tend not to be happy, according to a major new study published February 17.

The authors believe that the study, published in the Europe's leading cardiology journal, the European Heart Journal [1], is the first to show such an independent relationship between positive emotions and coronary heart disease.'

Michael Pollan: Forget Nutrition Charts, Eat What Grandma Said Is Good for You


'One grandmother is worth two M.D.s.'
Robert Mendelsohn, M.D


'Michael Pollan: Forget Nutrition Charts, Eat What Grandma Said Is Good for You
The author of 'The Omnivore's Dilemma' says science [think corporate 'Big Agribusiness' fake science] has supplanted cultural wisdom as a guide in telling us what to eat'.

Harry Kreisler (HK): In understanding food and agribusiness, politics is very important.

'Michael Pollan (MP): We're not aware of it, but food, like everything, is political. It is the biggest industry in the country; it's the most essential thing. We've had the luxury of not having to think about it for the last thirty years, thanks to Earl Butz and having all this cheap food around. But you know, if we as a society have to live without gasoline, which is unimaginable, we will figure out how to do it. We did it for millions of years. We've never lived without food. Food is really essential, and when you have anything that's essential, there is enormous political and economic forces that contend about how it will be organized.'

David Rasnick: Do ARVs Save Lives? The raw data Oakland, CA, Rethinking AIDS Conference, November 6-8, 2009




Yes, WHO Faked a Swine Flu Pandemic and is Now Lying About It



'The World Health Organization has suddenly gone from crying “The sky is falling!” like a cackling Chicken Little to squealing like a stuck pig. The reason: charges that the agency deliberately fomented swine flu hysteria. “The world is going through a real pandemic. The description of it as a fake is wrong and irresponsible,” the agency claims on its Web site.

But I’ve been documenting the hoax since before a pandemic was declared, back when the WHO was just posturing about a proclamation.'

New Evidence That Green Tea Helps Fight Eye Diseases


'Scientists have confirmed that the healthful substances found in green tea -- renowned for their powerful antioxidant and disease-fighting properties — do penetrate into tissues of the eye. Their new report, the first documenting how the lens, retina, and other eye tissues absorb these substances, raises the possibility that green tea may protect against glaucoma and other common eye diseases. It appears in ACS's bi-weekly Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

Chi Pui Pang and colleagues point out that so-called green tea "catechins" have been among a number of antioxidants thought capable of protecting the eye. Those include vitamin C, vitamin E, lutein, and zeaxanthin. Until now, however, nobody knew if the catechins in green tea actually passed from the stomach and gastrointestinal tract into the tissues of the eye.

Pang and his colleagues resolved that uncertainty in experiments with laboratory rats that drank green tea. Analysis of eye tissues showed beyond a doubt that eye structures absorbed significant amounts of individual catechins. The retina, for example, absorbed the highest levels of gallocatechin, while the aqueous humor tended to absorb epigallocatechin. The effects of green tea catechins in reducing harmful oxidative stress in the eye lasted for up to 20 hours. "Our results indicate that green tea consumption could benefit the eye against oxidative stress," the report concludes.'

Changing Our Disease Care System To A Health Care System




'Now that health care reform has been put on the back burner, maybe it is time to discuss what health care reform should really look like. Although we talk about a "health care" system and health care reform, what we're actually talking about is a "disease care" system and disease care reform. Doctors of modern western medicine are trained to treat disease with drugs and surgery. They are not trained to keep people healthy.'

Side Effects: Death: A Former Lilly Insider Explains How the Big Pharma Criminal Cartel Operates






Background


'John Virapen is now retired, after working more than 30 years in the pharma industry internationally. He has worked at the executive level for some major companies such as Eli Lilly and Novo Nordisk. His career started in Sweden where he was Managing Director for Eli Lilly Sweden AB. Virapen now lives in Germany.

Last year Virapen published a fictional novel (written in German) about corruption in the pharma industry, which created some debate. He was urged by the public to tell the true story and has now written a book of memoirs primarily outlining the criminal activities he was involved in during his active years.

The Big Fish here is Eli Lilly. A few months ago Virapen was invited by Andy Vickery, a prominent US attorney, as a fact witness in an ongoing case regarding Prozac. Virapen claims to have "damning evidence" exposing Eli Lilly bribing the regulatory board in Sweden to attain marketing approval for Prozac.

In this podcast, Virapen will reveal some of the details of this ongoing expose that few in the US are aware of.'

Note: "Side Effects: Death" is available in English at Amazon.

What Big Pharma Knows – “Side Effects: Death”

'Many of the horrific school, workplace and mass shootings that have plagued parts of the world over the years may not have occurred if the pharmaceutical industry had been completely honest about the side effects of psychotropic medication, according to the new book Side Effects: Death – Confessions of a Pharma Insider by former executive director of the Swedish Branch of Eli Lilly & Company John Virapen.

Virapen claims that anti-depressants and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) were known to have suicidal and homicidal side effects, even during clinical trials. Thanks to spin marketing and paid, positive articles in scientific journals, he points out, the adverse reactions were often ignored or given little thought by prescribing physicians and patients.

Virapen also asserts the pharmaceutical industry has engaged in bribery and other major forms of corruption to gain approval for and in the marketing of many drugs used to treat such conditions as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), schizophrenia, arthritis, pain, diabetes and many others. The industry also “makes up” illnesses to enhance sales and market shares, he says.

To boost sales, Virapen writes, large pharmaceutical corporations spend about $35,000–$40,000 per year and per practicing doctor to persuade them to prescribe their products. In addition to covering or “massaging”
the negative effects of drugs, many of the companies engage in “off-label marketing,” which encourages physicians to prescribe the medicines for conditions for which they haven’t been approved, Virapen reveals.

Born in British Guyana, John Virapen went from a door-to-door conman to a pop star, to a pharmaceutical representative to executive director of one of the largest drug companies in the world. He admits to participating in bribery, false information and deception to help launch and market some of the most popularly prescribed (and most dangerous) drugs. In an effort to exorcise his demons and expose the tactics and dangers of the pharmaceutical industry, he wrote this expose.

The book has been published in four languages around the world and is a best-seller in Europe.'

Pharmagate: Big Pharma Researcher Admits to Faking Dozens of Research Studies for Pfizer, Merck

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

'It's being called the largest research fraud in medical history. Dr. Scott Reuben, a former member of Pfizer's speakers' bureau, has agreed to plead guilty to faking dozens of research studies that were published in medical journals.

Now being reported across the mainstream media is the fact that Dr. Reuben accepted a $75,000 grant from Pfizer to study Celebrex in 2005. His research, which was published in a medical journal, has since been quoted by hundreds of other doctors and researchers as "proof" that Celebrex helped reduce pain during post-surgical recovery. There's only one problem with all this: No patients were ever enrolled in the study!

Dr. Scott Reuben, it turns out, faked the entire study and got it published anyway.'

New Research Reveals Conventional Wisdom about Balancing Blood Sugar is Wrong



'If you’re concerned about your blood sugar, you need to know that new research now proves conventional blood sugar solutions could be putting your health at great risk.'

'Conventional wisdom says if you’re not having symptoms, your blood sugar problems are not such a big deal.

In reality, foggy thinking, memory lapses, low energy levels, kidney problems and high blood pressure and cholesterol levels are just a few of the symptoms you might not be attributing to unbalanced blood sugar… but should be.'

How To Become A Great Cook Without Being A Chef

Chefs with Wine I by Shari Warren


'What I really love is food.

I love to shop for ingredients and envision the delicious dishes I can make with them. I love the taste of fresh, ripe, seasonal produce from the farmers market. I love the way good food makes me feel. I love the knowledge that what I eat helps me thrive.

But cutting stuff up and putting it in a pan isn't particularly fun for me. Though I certainly enjoy the fruits of my labor!

For me cooking is a means to an end. I cook for my own health and happiness, and for whomever I happen to be sharing my time with at the moment.

The Beginning of the End of Marijuana Prohibition

It's only a matter of time before marijuana is taxed, controlled, and regulated in the United States.


'There's been steady progress on medical marijuana -- as evidenced by the Obama administration's new guidelines directing federal drug agents not to arrest legitimate patients and suppliers in medical marijuana states. Then there's the recent victories in Maine, New Jersey, Rhode Island and Washington D.C., -- not to mention the medical marijuana bills making progress in numerous other states around the country. Last month's ABC News/Washington Post poll reported a record 81 percent support for medical marijuana. If ballot initiatives could be held in all 50 states, voters would approve it in all but a small handful.'

Acupuncture for Arthritis


'Millions of Americans report that they cannot perform simple everyday tasks such as tying a tie or opening a jar, because of the debilitating pain of arthritis. Twenty percent of all Americans say that their arthritis symptoms are so severe that it has affected their job performance and their general ability to enjoy life.

Despite what one may think, arthritis is not just an "old persons" disease. In fact, almost two-thirds of those with some form of arthritis are younger than age 65. There are two main forms of arthritis: rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. In recent studies, acupuncture has been shown to be effective in reducing the symptoms of both.'

H1N1 Vaccine is NOT Safe -Toronto Sun: Paralyses following H1N1 inoculation are underreported


'These numbers mean absolutely nothing when your child is lying in intensive care fighting for his life,” says Cathy, whose son asked that their last name not be used. “Then the odds are more like one in one.” Her son Michael was a strapping, fit 26-year-old hospital worker who began complaining of tingling in his feet four weeks after his H1N1 shot. On Dec. 5, as he was losing feeling in his legs, his mom rushed him to St. Joseph’s hospital. A spinal tap confirmed GBS. And then he deteriorated so quickly that he spent four days in intensive care, completely paralyzed'


'“It was brutal,” Michael recalls, back at his Etobicoke home. “You’re trapped inside your brain. I couldn’t move. I couldn’t even swallow my own spit. It was hell and there was a time I just wanted to die.” He’s one of the lucky ones. His recovery has been almost as stunningly quick as his descent into paralysis. After a month in hospital and two weeks at
West Park rehab, he’s weak, but walking again. “It feels like a bad dream,” he says. But not for his mother.

'She wrote a scathing letter to several health officials, including Dr. David Butler-Jones,
Canada’s chief medical officer of health who has spent months urging everyone to get their H1N1 shot. “I look forward to your replies as to how you can compensate Michael for his pain and suffering since all health officials promise over and over again that the H1N1 vaccine is safe,” she wrote. “What will you do for unlucky people such as Michael?” A month later, and no one has even had the decency to reply.'

Health Insurers More Grotesquely Greedy Than Wall Street Bankers

The great thing about Corporate America is that competition is always fierce for the national title of greediest.


'During the past several months, the Barons of Wall Street had established themselves as the vilest and most reviled corporate team in the land. They've been lavishing bonuses on themselves even as their firms continue to benefit from government bailout measures and even as ordinary Americans continue to struggle with the economic collapse caused by the bankers' arrogance and avarice. Wall Streeters were widely considered a shoo-in to take the coveted Corporate Greedhead Trophy this year -- but, holy cow, what a comeback bid we're now seeing from the Giants of Insurance!

Let's recap their amazing charge: Last week, the news broke that America's five largest health insurance companies (United Health, Wellpoint, Aetna, Humana and Cigna) had scored record profits in 2009, totaling $12.2 billion. This was a stunning 56 percent hike over the previous year, a drive made all the more impressive by the fact that these gains came during the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.'

The Economic Elite Have Engineered an Extraordinary Coup, Threatening the Very Existence of the Middle Class

The economic elite have robbed us all. The amount of suffering in the United States of America is literally a crime against humanity.



"The American oligarchy spares no pains in promoting the belief that it does not exist, but the success of its disappearing act depends on equally strenuous efforts on the part of an American public anxious to believe in egalitarian fictions and unwilling to see what is hidden in plain sight."

-- Michael Lind


'Current statistical societal indicators clearly demonstrate that a strategic attack has been launched and an analysis of current governmental policies prove that conditions for 99 percent of Americans will continue to deteriorate. The Economic Elite have engineered a financial coup and have brought war to our doorstep...and make no mistake, they have launched a war to eliminate the U.S. middle class.'

The Bankers Manifesto of 1892: History Repeated

Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr. revealed the Bankers Manifesto of 1892 to the U.S. Congress somewhere between 1907 and 1917.

We (the bankers) must proceed with caution and guard every move made, for the lower order of people are already showing signs of restless commotion. Prudence will therefore show a policy of apparently yielding to the popular will until our plans are so far consummated that we can declare our designs without fear of any organized resistance.

Organizations in the United States should be carefully watched by our trusted men, and we must take immediate steps to control these organizations in our interest or disrupt them.

At the coming Omaha convention to be held July 4, 1892, our men must attend and direct its movement or else there will be set on foot such antagonism to our designs as may require force to overcome.

This at the present time would be premature. We are not yet ready for such a crisis. Capital must protect itself in every possible manner through combination (conspiracy) and legislation.

The courts must be called to our aid, debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.

When, through the process of law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of the government applied to a central power of imperial wealth under the control of the leading financiers.

People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. History repeats itself in regular cycles. This truth is well known among our principal men who are engaged in forming an imperialism of the world. While they are doing this, the people must be kept in a state of political antagonism.

The question of tariff reform must be urged through the organization known as the Democratic Party, and the question of protection with the reciprocity must be forced to view through the Republican Party.

By thus dividing voters, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us, except as teachers to the common herd. Thus, by discrete actions, we can secure all that has been so generously planned and successfully accomplished.

Sounds kind of familiar doesn’t it?

Drinking Clay Helps to Restore Normal Sleep Patterns

Healing Clay

Featured: Did You Know...?

Researchers at the University of New England in Australia claim to have made a surprising discovery. While searching for means to combat a serious stomach disorder common to Australian sheep, they found that "small quantities of a naturally occurring clay, called bentonite, mixed into a sheep's drinking water" not only improved the animal's digestion but increased wool growth, reports The Australian. One of the researchers, Professor Ron Leng, said that a daily dose of a half ounce of bentonite mixed into their drinking water had resulted in increase of up to about one tenth of an ounce a day in a sheep's growth. It is hoped that use of this mixture on sheep nationwide will bring increases in wool production worth millions of dollars.

-AWAKE! 6/22/88


The Clay Disciples Synopsis: Ruth tells her story about how drinking clay relieved a long-term sleeping pattern problem. Eytons' Earth comments about the homeostatic nature of healing clays, and how this can relate to different experiences for individuals based on the individual's state of health. A guide is presented showing how clay can be used according to an individual's state of health.


'So I began drinking the clay, then going right to bed, shutting off the light, and seeing what would happen. I would not do this until I was truly sleepy and ready for bed. I started this in February and for the first two nights I did this, it worked! I was amazed. Then a lot of things were happening and going on in my mind, and I was afraid I wouldn’t sleep so I went back to the pills again. I was just afraid to trust it, and couldn’t believe it was really going to help me.

On Sunday night February 18th, I started drinking the clay again at bedtime. For the next 12 nights I did this, and I slept wonderfully all 12 nights. At first, I only slept 5 hours but as time went on, my sleep time became longer.

Then once again because of things on my mind that I did not believe would let the clay work, I got back on pills again. I did this about a week, but then the pills didn’t work either.

So, I went back to the clay last week and now for almost a week, I have drank the clay water and slept like a baby. And the best part is that once again I dream! Taking the pills, I never dreamed. It is healthy to dream. I am now sleeping at least 7 hours each night, and I never wake up at all. Now I am waking up around 7:00-7:30 am, and suddenly I have more DAY TIME and I am getting more done and have more energy. The longer I take the clay, the more energy I have, because I am getting –finally-the rest that I need and getting it in a natural, safe and healing way.'

Mexican herbal steam baths (temazcal)

Traditional construction of a Temazcal


A modern update on the Temazcal


'During her thirty years working as a nurse in an Oaxacan hospital, Mariana Emilia Arroyo Cabrera witnessed Western medicine’s neglect of the whole patient. In fact, she saw it from several perspectives—in the operating room, as a hospital administrator, and at the Universidad Benito Juarez, where she trained nurses.

“There were thousands of beds in the hospital and only a few doctors,” she says. “Their consultations were short; they didn’t have time to ask about the patient’s problems. The doctors filled out lots of prescriptions, but many illnesses are caused by the heart and the mind, and those were not being addressed.”

'About six years ago, she decided that Western medical treatments left many patients incompletely healed. Consequently, she began to heal others holistically, using a centuries-old traditional herbal steam bath called a temazcal.'

The Traditonal Mexican Sweat Bath

'Some twenty years or so ago, a renewed interest in the ancient sweat bath, still called by the same name used by the Aztecs, the Temazcal, sprang up in Mexico. It's a part of the movement, now so widespread in this country, to return to the healing practices preserved in indigenous medicine. These sweat baths, still a living tradition in many parts of the country, are usually small round stone or mud structures looking rather like old fashioned bee-hives. Many more began to be constructed everywhere, and more and more often, people who are ailing will turn to them for relief from their complaints.

Sweat baths, of course, are used in many cultures of the world, both ancient and modern. The sauna of Scandinavia is famous, as is the hamem of north Africa and Turkey. In the ruins of Pompeii there are the remains of sweat baths, and in India, people lay in the sun, covered with leaves to protect themselves from the burning rays of the sun, to bring on sweating. It is, of course, a well-known part of the culture of our own Indians, and in this form the sweat lodge is enjoying renewed popularity.'

Dirt Cheap Eats -- Your Own Victory Garden


'A few generations ago the kitchen garden was a necessity. In recent times it has become more of a hobby, a source of fun and outdoor exercise that carries a few bonuses. No salad is fresher than the one you pick minutes before a meal; no dish gives more pride than the one you produce literally from the ground up. Today, with the economy sputtering, we may see the kitchen garden make a comeback.

'Remember victory gardens? Eleanor Roosevelt spurred 20 million home gardens by planting one on the White House grounds in 1943. A Maine neighbor's petition drive at eattheview.org asks the Obamas to renew the example. All you need to start your kitchen garden is a bit of basic information about plot size and soil, guarding your garden from wildlife, and which crops to grow.'

Rye Beats Laxatives for Constipation Relief

Consumption of fibre-rich rye bread may ease constipation and [out] performs commercial laxatives, according to a new study from Finland.

“To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first to evaluate the effects of rye bread in treating constipation as compared with laxatives and to simultaneously investigate the changes in the colonic metabolism,” wrote the researchers, led by Reetta Holma.

Fluoridation Issue Escalates Into Rage in California Town


'The editorial in the Watsonville Register-Pajaronian offered local voters some blunt advice: "Shield your eyes," it said, "because the City Council is preparing to spit in your face."

That was this month, as the council inched toward finally fluoridating the city's water -- a state-mandated action that has been bitterly debated since city residents narrowly voted to block it in 2002. At a council meeting in January, an anti-fluoridation activist held up a sign alluding to Nazis. When speakers threatened to boycott local businesses if fluoridation goes through, a council member told them to jump off the parking-garage roof.'

Bread and Circuses: The Art of Corporate Mind Control




'Television is the most powerful weapon of psychological warfare in history and yet it is a member of the family in most households. The programming that we are constantly assaulted with conditions us to a particular worldview. This fake reality changes our behavior making us less active and more compliant with society's shortcomings.

Since television is controlled by a small handful of powerful corporations, viewers will never witness informing, truthful news and entertainment. As political and corporate power unite at an ever increasing rate, being informed is more important than ever.

People need to seek out independent and alternative unbiased sources on the internet for their information or we will continue to be manipulated by the corporate controlled media.'



TRANSCRIPT

Most of humanity is in an absolute hypnotic trance that they're put in from cradle to grave by constant repetition of a fake reality and when we wake up from this we will not be subservient.

Jordan Maxwell: The bottom line is that the government is getting what they ordered. They do not want your children to be educated. They do not want you to think too much. That is why our country and our world has become so proliferated with entertainments, mass media, television shows, amusement parks, drugs, alcohol, and every kind of entertainment to keep the human mind entertained so that you don't get in the way of important people by doing too much thinking. You better wake up and understand that there are people who are guiding your life and you don't even know it.

Steven Jacobson: Television is the most powerful weapon of psychological warfare in history. The programming that we are constantly assaulted by throughout our lives conditions us. It programs us to a particular worldview. Now, we may consider it normal because we were born into this system of lies and deception. And because we were born into this situation and our parents were born into it and have suffered from it, we don't know any better.

Aldous Huxley: What I may call the messages of Brave New World, but it is possible to make people contented with their servitude. I think this can be done. I think it has been done in the past. I think it could be done even more effectively now because you can provide them with bread and circuses and you can provide them with endless amounts of distractions and propaganda.

George Carlin: But there's a reason, there's a reason. There's a reason for this. There's a reason education sucks and its the same reason it will never ever ever be fixed. Its never gonna get any better, don't look for it. Be happy with what you got, because the owners of this country don't want that. They don't want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that.

Howard Beale: We know things are bad, worse than bad. They're crazy. Its like everything everywhere is going crazy so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house and slowly the world were living in is getting smaller and all we say is please at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel belted radios and I wont say anything, just leave us alone. Well I'm not going to leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it and stick your head out and yell, I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore! You've got to say, Im a human being God damn it, my life has value!

Government Tracks Your DNA Without Your Consent

Parental approval is not required—nor are parents informed. Our children are being born into a Brave New World.

'Although the baby's name is not supposed to be kept with the DNA samples, that begs the question of how parents are informed when their children are found to have genetic diseases. And who really believes that such information is kept private?'

Stop Making Cancer

'It also seems too simple: In order to achieve lasting health, simply stop making disease. But the concept is foreign to most people: Making disease? Why would I be making disease?'

'Mainstream consumers, you see, have been trained by the medical industry to believe that disease strikes spontaneously, without any real cause. One day you have nothing wrong with you, and then suddenly the next day you're diagnosed with a breast cancer tumor. Shazam! It happens just like being struck by lightning... (and it's not your fault, you're told -- there's nothing you could have done about it...)'

'In 2006, Professor Ames published a key article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS), entitled ‘Low micronutrient intake may accelerate the degenerative diseases of aging through allocation of scarce micronutrients by triage’. Ames had become well aware that many micronutrient (vitamins and minerals) deficiencies are associated with chromosome breaks and cancer in humans, such deficiencies having caused DNA damage in rodents or human cells in culture. It had also been established that chromosomal breaks cause early aging. As a result Professor Ames proposed that DNA damage and late onset disease are consequences of a ‘triage allocation mechanism’ developed during evolution to cope with periods of micronutrient shortage.'

Happy Valentine's Day: Chocolate Tantric Tart

A Care2 favorite by Annie B. Bond

Adapted from Esalen Cookbook, by Charlie Cascio (Gibbs Smith Publisher, 2006).

This luscious chocolate pie is guaranteed to add some sweet heat to your Valentine’s meal. Of its six ingredients, four of them are thought to be aphrodisiacal: Chocolate, almonds, ginger and chile. Powers of attraction aside, this recipe for Chocolate Tantric Pie is unusual and delicious, and is as easy as pie to prepare.

This is a sweet chocolate pie with the spicy bite of ginger and cayenne pepper. It’s guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth, internally warm your belly, and give you that unmistakable tantric glow. There is very little work to creating this dessert. For a gluten-free version, omit the pie shell for a no-bake flourless torte. You can also pour the pie mixture into a baking dish, just cool before cutting into squares and serve like fudge.

INGREDIENTS


1½ cups organic half-and-half or whipping cream
3 cups semisweet organic chocolate chips
1 cup chopped almonds
1 cup chopped candied ginger
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
9-inch [organic, whole wheat] pie crust


METHOD

1. Over medium heat, bring half-and half or whipping cream to a simmer in a 1-quart saucepan, stirring to prevent scorching on the bottom.

2. Whisk as you slowly pour the chocolate chips into the cream and continue to stir until the chocolate has melted. Stir in half the almonds and half the ginger. Stir in cayenne if using.

3. Pour mixture into a pre-baked 9-inch pie shell. Sprinkle any remaining almonds and ginger on top. Cool until firm, slice, and serve.

Serves 8.

Big Pharma: Stop Maiming 'Our' Children!






'The Thinktwice Global Vaccine Institute receives numerous emails every day. Here is a small sample of typical questions, comments, concerns, and unsolicited personal stories of vaccine damage. To read even more personal stories of vaccine damage, visit these links: personal stories and multiple vaccines administered simultaneously. For the most comprehensive information available about vaccines and the diseases they're meant to protect against, be sure to read our newest publication: Vaccine Safety Manual.'


'My daughter Julia had her MMR two days before her 1st birthday. Nine days later she was found unresponsive in her crib, covered in vomit and feces and unable to move on her left side. She was hospitalized for over three weeks (10 days in PICU) with encephalitis. All tests for an etiology came back negative. Her MRIs showed demyelination in the left and right frontal lobes of her brain. When she left the hospital, she was operating at the level of a 2-month-old baby -- unable to sit up, severely weak on the left side of her body, unable to drink liquids unless they were thickened because she would aspirate.'

'It has been over a year now. She is two years and two months old, and is operating at the level of a 12-month-old in most aspects. She is beginning to walk again, though very unsteady, and falls after about 10 steps. She still doesn't use her left arm or hand very much. She has no words. I have had several different opinions on her potential for recovery, varying from never talking again to going to college. I know in my heart that this was an MMR reaction and am devastated that I allowed this to happen to my baby girl. My son was due for his MMR (second one at 4 years old) two months after Julia got out of the hospital. This is not going to happen, ever.'

Think Twice: We're sorry to hear that your daughter was seriously damaged after receiving the MMR vaccine. Although this is a common experience that is devastating to many families, the medical industry refuses to accept responsibility and will not acknowledge -- let alone change -- the failings of their "preventive" health practices. As a result, a new generation of children is being lost to neurological and immunological disabilities, developmental disorders, autism, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), and other serious ailments. Best wishes toward a full recovery.
