The Problem with Interventional Drug Therapy for Coronary Heart Disease

 


By Caldwell B.Esselstyn, Jr., MD

'For the minority of heart patients, specifically those in the midst of heart attacks or acute coronary syndromes, stents or coronary artery bypass may be lifesaving. For the rest, none of the present therapies targets the cause: the Western diet. As a consequence, the disease marches on in all patients, which leads to more drugs, stents and bypasses, increasing heart damage, heart failure and, too often, death. 

In 1985, I initiated a study that treated seriously ill patients with coronary artery disease with plant-based nutrition and succeeded in the arrest and reversal of their disease. This program has been published at 5, 12 and 16 years, and most recently summarized at 20 years in my book, "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease," making it one of the longest investigations of its type in medical research. The duration of the study is testimony that patients with coronary disease will adhere to these food changes for decades and beyond.'

Thievery 101




By Dr. Mark Sircus



' “Law-abiding middle-class citizens are deciding that playing by the rules is nothing but a sucker’s game. Just like the poker player who’s been fleeced by all the other players and gets one mean attitude once he finally wakes up to the con. I’m betting that more and more of the solid American middle-class will begin saying what Brian and Ilsa said: Fuckit. Fuck the rules. Fuck playing the game the banksters want you to play. Fuck being the good citizen. Fuck filling out every form, fuck paying every tax. Fuck the government, fuck the banks who own them. Fuck the free-loaders living rent-free while we pay. Fuck the legal process, a game that only works if you’ve got the money to pay for the parasite lawyers. Fuck being a chump. Fuck being a stooge. Fuck trying to do the right thing—what good does that get you? What good is coming your way? Fuckit. When the backbone of a country starts thinking that laws and rules are not worth following, it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump to anarchy.” '

'Since the mid-1990s just five biotech giants - Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, Dow and DuPont - have bought up more than 200 other companies between them to dominate our access to seeds.

Philip Howard from Michigan State university, who has produced a unique visual to illustrate this growing concentration of power in the hands of a few companies, says the takeover of the seed market has been 'dramatic' and that it is getting harder for farmers to find alternatives.

In the US for example, where 90 per cent of the soybeans grown are genetically-modified varieties, many conventional farmers have had difficulty obtaining non-genetically modified seeds to plant.'

Walking Just 1 Mile a Day Helps Save Your Memory

http://www.sciencedaily.com/images/2007/07/070711134426-large.jpg



 'Walking an average of just one mile a day appears to protect against brain shrinkage in old age, which in turn helps stem the onset of memory problems and cognitive decline, new research reveals.
"We have always been in search of the drug or the magic pill to help treat brain disorders," noted Kirk I. Erickson, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Pittsburgh and the study's lead author.

"But really what we are after may be, at least partially, even simpler than that. Just by walking regularly, and so maintaining a little bit of moderate physical activity, you can reduce your likelihood of developing Alzheimer's disease and [can] spare brain tissue."
A report on the research, which was supported by the U.S. National Institute on Aging, is published online Oct. 13 in Neurology.'

Merck Sued Over 'HomeAgain' Pet Chip Cancer

Bulkin


'Pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co. has been served with a lawsuit over claims its HomeAgain® pet microchip induced cancer in a cat. Animal rights attorney Steven Wise seeks "reasonable compensatory
damages" for a malignant tumor "likely" induced by a HomeAgain® ID chip implanted in his client's cat, Bulkin.

"Based on the alarming number of microchip-linked cancers we're discovering, I predict this lawsuit will be just the tip of the iceberg," said Dr. Katherine Albrecht, a consumer advocate and expert on adverse reactions associated with implantable microchips.'

Supreme Court Weighs Whether Vaccine Makers Can Be Sued




"We want the profits, not the responsibility"


SOURCE: BRASSCHECK


Propaganda for the drug companies

'This is a very important case.

Drug companies want to be free from any and all liability for injuries created by their products.

If you want justice in these cases, you have to go to a special "vaccination court."

The government, including the Obama administration, backs the drug companies against the public.

"These cases are hard to prove."

Autism rates have sky-rocketed since the US mandated vaccination rates that are more than double what they were 30 years ago. Obvious cause and effect.

"Who polices these vaccines?"

The FDA? The CDC? Note that not even the Supreme Court could get a straight answer to this very simple question.

Bottom line:

1. Avoid all vaccines, especially patent nonsense like "flu shots." Realize that if there is a problem with a vaccination, YOU will bear ALL the costs and responsibilities yourself without recourse.

2. Never allow doctors to shoot up young children with multiple vaccines on the same day

3. Never bring a child for so-called vaccination when he or she is obviously sick or run down.

Prevention & Treatment of Vaccine Damages

'Cruelty toward babies starts at birth. It really starts before birth but that is another tale. Many parents have heard horror stories, and have serious doubts about vaccinating. Even that first injection of vitamin K is not without risk and danger. This chapter is for parents in the situation where they are forced into a corner for one of many reasons and feel like they have to vaccinate their children. Often one parent is against and the other for vaccination. In the context of Humane Pediatrics it is strongly advised to avoid vaccines altogether so as to avoid the threatening edifice of medical and health complications that can stem from them. 

It should be obvious to the humane among us that it is also to avoid a type of suffering we should not wish on our dearest enemies – that of having to deal with a vaccine-damaged child. This chapter is also for adults who might have to take a vaccination to travel or for healthcare workers in hospitals and others in the military who are given little to no choice. You could find yourself someday with the army at the door and you better roll up your sleeve real quick and try to smile while you are freaking out.'

Anti-Inflammatory and Metabolic Benefits of Resveratrol

http://prospect.rsc.org/blogs/cw/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/red-wine.jpg



'Writing in the International Journal of Obesity, researchers from Aarhus University report that resveratrol changed the production of certain compounds called adipokines from human fat cells, and produced an anti-inflammatory effect. The study is reported to be the first to in vitro suggest resveratrol has anti-inflammatory effects on adipokine expression and secretion in human fat tissue. “Small interfering molecules such as resveratrol are in this matter hypothesized to possess beneficial effects and might improve the metabolic profile in human obesity,” wrote the researchers, before adding that the results need to be replicated in vivo.'

Got Thyroid Problems? Then Stop Consuming This "Healthy" Food




By Dr. Mercola


How Soy Became Known as a "Health Food"


'But first, let's review a bit of the history behind soy that created this misperception in the public's mind.

Years ago, tropical oils, such as palm and coconut oil, were commonly used in American food production. However, these are obviously not grown in the US. With the exception of Hawaii, our climate isn't tropical enough.

Spurred on by financial incentives, the industry devised a plan to shift the market from tropical oils to something more "home grown." As a result, a movement was created to demonize and vilify tropical oils in order to replace them with domestically grown oils such as corn and, primarily, soy.

For the most part, they've been very successful in their campaign to paint soy in a healthy light. So, the information I have to share with you may disappoint and challenge many of you, especially vegetarians, because vegetarians and vegans use soy as one of their primary sources of protein.

But I'm here to tell you that after studying this issue very carefully, I'm convinced that unless the soy you're consuming is fermented, you're putting your health at risk.'

Huge New Screening (and Drug Treatment) Push for Alzheimer's Disease




'Experts on Alzheimer's disease are proposing new criteria for diagnosing the dementia which would pick it up at an earlier stage and should get more patients onto treatment or into trials of new drugs. An international expert group said the new guidelines would revise the definition of Alzheimer's to take into account recent scientific developments - including the use of so-called biomarkers, or biological signals, which can show if a person is at risk of the disease before they have any symptoms. 

This pre-clinical stage, which can be about 10 years before dementia sets in, is widely seen as the best time to intervene in Alzheimer's. Recent studies have shown that brain scans, spinal fluid analyses and other tests can help predict who will develop Alzheimer's and they are becoming crucial to researchers and drug firms trying to develop new treatments.'

Vaccine Damages Are No One’s Illusion

 Description: Ukraine Vaccine Scare
 Sergei Chuzavkov / AP



By Dr. Mark Sircus


'Associated Press doesn’t miss a beat feigning their puzzlement over the Ukrainians’ refusal to roll up their sleeves for Ted Turner’s vaccines, pretending, as all the mass media does, that vaccines are the best and safest thing since mother’s chicken soup. “The people of Ukraine though didn’t wait for their government and elected officials to take action to protect them from these dangerous vaccines. They took action themselves by boycotting the globalists’ agenda en-mass and forcing the destruction of whatever Ted Turner had filled those nine million injections with by simply not consuming what was placed in the trough by the globalists.There is a great lesson to be learned here: Boycotts work, and perhaps the only vote you have that really counts is how you choose to spend your money, who you pay your attention to, and who you place your trust in, be it food, water, medicine, education, or the news.”
 
We know that vaccines are dangerous and many are literally forced to take them and give them to their children through many subtle and not so subtle pressures and manipulations. Vaccine damages can be life-long and cost a fortune to family and state. Medical officials still say there is nothing to worry about but a looking under the hood of vaccine dangers and damages tells a completely different story.'

The Best Breast Test: The Promise of Thermography

http://www.creativewellnesscenter.com/images/thermography1.jpg

By Dr. Christiane Northrup 


'Every year when Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) comes around I am a saddened and surprised that thermography hasn't become more popular. Part of this is my mindset. I'd rather focus on breast health and ways to prevent breast cancer at the cellular level than put the emphasis on testing and retesting until you finally do find something to poke, prod, cut out or radiate. That's why I call October Breast Health Awareness Month, not Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I understand that mammography has been the gold standard for years.

'Doctors are the most familiar with this test, and many believe that a mammogram is the best test for detecting breast cancer early. But it's not. Studies show that a thermogram identifies precancerous or cancerous cells earlier, and produces unambiguous results, which cuts down on additional testing--and it doesn't hurt the body. Isn't this what women really want?'

Recent Barbaric Experiments in Medicine




 By Dr. Mercola
'The scientific experiments detailed in the links above are mind-twistingly, jaw-droppingly shocking. They make you wonder, "How could anyone ever conceive of doing something like these experiments?"

Well, that question may never be answered, as human experimentation not only existed well into the 20th century, it’s still going on today.

Right now, virtually everyone reading this is taking part in any number of unethical experiments you are not being told about, involving substances and technologies that stand to seriously harm your health.'

Lead Researcher and Bayer Exposed in Biased Study on Bee Colony Collapse Disorder


 http://www.sciencemediacentre.co.nz/wp-content/upload/2009/03/bees.jpg


'Few ecological disasters have been as confounding as the massive and devastating die-off of the world's honeybees. The phenomenon of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) -- in which disoriented honeybees die far from their hives -- has kept scientists, beekeepers, and regulators desperately seeking the cause. After all, the honeybee, nature's ultimate utility player, pollinates a third of all the food we eat and contributes an estimated $15 billion in annual agriculture revenue to the U.S. economy. 

The long list of possible suspects has included pests, viruses, fungi, and also pesticides, particularly so-called neonicotinoids, a class of neurotoxins that kills insects by attacking their nervous systems. For years, their leading manufacturer, Bayer Crop Science, a subsidiary of the German pharmaceutical giant Bayer AG, has tangled with regulators and fended off lawsuits from angry beekeepers who allege that the pesticides have disoriented and ultimately killed their bees. The company has countered that, when used correctly, the pesticides pose little risk.'

Fall Feasting: A Guide to Winter Squashes

 

 'As warm air turns decidedly crisper, and we trade sandals and short sleeves for breezy scarves and cardigans, thoughts invariably turn away from cool, light summer dishes toward fall’s gastronomic bounty: hearty soups, casseroles, and roasts. And at the base of many of these favorite autumn dishes are winter squashes, which, despite their descriptive name, actually come into season around October. 

So what better time to explore the different varietals popping up at markets all over the country? All winter squashes are nutritional powerhouses, boasting iron, fiber, beta carotene, and a plethora of other beneficial components. What’s more, they’re delicious and can suit a variety of tastes—once you learn the flavor and texture differences between them.'

Food Firms Spend Millions to Block Food Health Warning Labels

 http://www.ncpad.org/get/images/home/healthpromotion/nutrition/food_label/foodlabel.gif

 'The food industry spent more than a billion dollars in its successful campaign to defeat a European labeling plan designed to make it easy for consumers to identify healthy and less healthy food options.

Under the proposed "traffic light" plan, which has already been adopted by some European supermarkets, foods would be marked with a series of prominent green, yellow or red circles representing different key nutrients. A red light would mean that the product should be consumed only occasionally, a yellow light would mean the product could safely be consumed in moderation, and a green light would mean the product was good to consume in quantity.

Concerned that such a plan would turn consumers away from sugary drinks, salty snacks and other foods labeled with a number of "red lights," the food industry poured €1 billion ($1.2 billion) into lobbying the European Parliament to reject the scheme.'

Shadows of the Future


 


Filmmaker Kevin P. Miller examines the possibilities of a future where international government bureaucracies like the WTO and Codex Alimentarius — working in league with multinational corporations, control the food and medicine supply worldwide.

FROM INT'L AWARD-WINNING FILMMAKER KEVIN P. MILLER:

"SHADOWS OF THE FUTURE was produced to help consumers understand the threat Codex regulations present to them. People need to know how 'Free Trade' deals with the WTO have tied us into a this strange bureaucratic alliance, and how it imposes on our lives and freedoms."

"But they also need to know that there is something they can do about it. By supporting the vital work being performed by the National Health Federation at the actual Codex meetings, you can aid the NHF as they can truly speak to power. NHF is the only health freedom organization at Codex that is promoting medical freedom of choice, all the while they combat the deceitful agendas Big Food and Big Pharma are pursuing through Codex Alimentarius. And they are doing so in clear public view before the world."

Founded in 1955, the NHF is the world's oldest health freedom organization. They are the ONLY health freedom group to be accredited and allowed to speak and present evidence at Codex meetings. Since Codex is where the political and economic battles are being waged for the future of the food and medicine supply, NHF is playing an increasingly vital role in fighting for those who demand access to safe water, non-GMO foods, dietary supplements and alternative medicines of all kinds.

"I felt it was important to produce this update about Codex and feature NHFs role in fighting for millions of consumers because it's important for people to know that we have a powerful, true voice standing against the international bureaucracies and their multinational corporate partners that want to usurp our freedoms. More people need to be aware of the threats—and realize that if they pitch in and support the NHFs work at Codex meetings, it will benefit all of us — now and in the future."

The Allan Smith Story, a TV Documentary from New Zealand

 

'Allan Smith, a New Zealand Dairy farmer, contracted Swine Flu while away on vacation in Fiji.  When he returned home, the flu quickly evolved into severe pneumonia which left him in a coma on Life Support in the Intensive Care Unit.  


'Chest Xrays showed the lungs were completely filled with fluid with an "opaque" appearance called "white out".  After three weeks of this, Allan's doctors asked the family permission to turn off the machines and let him die.  

'Allan's wife Sonia had a brother with some medical knowledge, so he stepped in and said, "you haven't tried everything, You have got to try high dose IV vitamin C on Allan".  At first, the doctors resisted, saying it was useless. Next, the three sons weighed in with a persuasive argument to try the IV vitamin C, saying there was nothing to lose.'

Is There a Cure for Autoimmune Disease?

 



2010-10-09-IsabelFacialRash.jpg


By Dr. Mark Hyman

'Isabel, a cute 10-year-old girl from Texas who loved riding horses, walked into my office a year and a half ago with one of the most severe cases of autoimmune disease I had ever seen. Her face was swollen, her skin was inflamed, her joints were swollen, her immune system was attacking her entire body--her muscles, her skin, her joints, her blood vessels, her liver, and her white and red blood cells. Isabel couldn't squeeze her hand or make a fist. The tips of her fingers and toes were always cold from Raynaud's disease that inflammed her blood vessels. She was tired and miserable and was losing her hair. Isabel was on elephant doses of intravenous steroids every three weeks just to keep her alive, and she was taking prednisone, aspirin, acid blockers, and methotrexate, a chemotherapy drug used to shut down the immune system daily.'

There are many home remedies out there that are difficult to make, full of expensive and exotic ingredients, or that have questionable results or even safety concerns. Happily, there are also many that consist of one or two simple and readily available ingredients, can be put together in minutes, and work safely and effectively.
These are tried and true recipes and remedies from our own family, and among my first forays into the world of herbal healing. Safe, simple, effective. What more could a mama want?'

October is Non-GMO Month




By Dr. Mercola


'Together we CAN get GMOs banned from the US. Europe was able to do it over a decade ago without any government assistance. All they did was educate the consumers, and that was enough pressure on the food industry to drop their ploys.

If we band together as an effective army we will be able to do this. Please understand that the VAST majority of people in the US do not want GM foods, so this is an EASY battle to win. All we have to do is a bit of organizational work.

So let me tell you how we are going to achieve the removal of GMOs in the US.

October is Non-GMO Month, and you've been receiving a lot of important information about genetically engineered foods this week.
Tomorrow, October 10th (10/10/10) is Non-GMO Day, so I'm pleased to bring back Jeffrey Smith, the real leader behind this movement to eliminate GM foods from the US market, for another interview.

This month, Jeffrey's organization, Institute for Responsible Technology, is launching a plan to bring their message to the necessary numbers of people to create a tipping point that can effectively drive GM foods off the market. Nearly 400 retail stores selling natural products around the country are already actively promoting the information about choosing healthier non-GMO products.

I'm thrilled to be part of this movement, and I strongly urge you join us.'

Argentina's Roundup Human Tragedy



 'Argentina has become a giant experiment in farming genetically modified (GM) Roundup Ready (RR) soy, engineered to be tolerant to Roundup, Monsanto’s formulation of the herbicide glyphosate. The Argentine government, eager to pull the country out of a deep economic recession in the 1990s, restructured its economy around GM soy grown for export, most of which goes to feed livestock in Europe. In 2009, GM soy was planted on 19 million hectares - over half of Argentina’s cultivated land - and sprayed with 200 million litres of glyphosate herbicide. Spraying is often carried out from the air, causing problems of drift. 

'In 2002, two years after the first big harvests of RR soy in the country, residents and doctors in soy producing areas began reporting serious health effects from glyphosate spraying, including high rates of birth defects as well as infertility, stillbirths, miscarriages, and cancers. Environmental effects include killed food crops and livestock and streams strewn with dead fish. 

'One of the first medical doctors to report problems from glyphosate spraying of GM soy was Dr Darío Gianfelici, from Cerrito, Entre Ríos, Argentina. According to Gianfelici, there are two levels of toxic effects from glyphosate: acute effects, such as vomiting, diarrhoea, respiratory problems, and skin rashes; and chronic effects, which take 10–20 years to show up. These include infertility and cancer.'
