Big Pharma is the Number One Defrauder of the US government!

by Dr. Jonathan B Wright

'It’s the end of the year, and you know what we like at the end of the year — lists.

From the top albums to the highest grossing movies to the biggest news stories — nothing wraps up a year quite like a good list.

Well, here’s a list on which you wouldn’t want to be. Unless you’re a Big Pharma company…then you probably just don’t care. Because this “honor” has been almost 20 years in the making, and absolutely nothing’s been done to curb the bad behavior that’s earned them their spot at the top.'

Top 10 Health Stories of 2010


'2010 is a year marked by an explosion in gene-related nutritional science, with significant findings to improve the health of one and all.  In contrast, the same type of gene science applied to the function of commonly used drugs is showing their true colors – toxic poisons that should be avoided for all but the most desperate use in true medical situations – and absolutely never for preventive health or the management of symptoms or numbers.

Last year I wrote the Top 10 Health Stories of 2009.  In 2009 gene exploration tools really caught on and all of the stories in 2009 are still valuable in 2010 and well worth a read in the context of the amazing explosion of nutritional science in support of health.  In 2010 I have focused on other stories which when taken along with the 2009 stories portray a major leap forward in our understanding of what you can do to stay healthy or recover your health.  And you can expect more of the same in 2011 – as the toxic bubble of Big Pharma prepares to burst and be replaced by common sense.'


The Chemtrail Conditioning Program

' "Those are normal, Mom. I even saw them on the ceiling of the Las Vegas Paris hotel!" How clever. Just like how we're seeing chemtrails more and more in advertisements, TV shows, movies....and now artwork. Like every other social engineering project, introduce it without any fanfare and work it into the fabric of the collective consciousness. That, or popularize it as a new trend.' 


More Than 25% of Kids and Teens in the U.S. Take Prescription Drugs on a Regular Basis

'Gage Martindale, who is 8 years old, has been taking a blood-pressure drug since he was a toddler. "I want to be healthy, and I don't want things in my heart to go wrong," he says. And, of course, his mom is always there to check Gage's blood pressure regularly with a home monitor, and to make sure the second-grader doesn't skip a dose of his once-a-day enalapril. These days, the medicine cabinet is truly a family affair. 

More than a quarter of U.S. kids and teens are taking a medication on a chronic basis, according to Medco Health Solutions Inc., the biggest U.S. pharmacy-benefit manager with around 65 million members. Nearly 7% are on two or more such drugs, based on the company's database figures for 2009. 


Supermarkets: What Price Cheap Food?


by Dr. Carolyn Dean, MD, ND and
Elissa Meininger

'In America and in the West, the public is conditioned to believe that modern (allopathic) medicine is the supreme healing modality. Propaganda machines that rely on media in need of content and not necessarily truth eagerly spread this notion. Scientific journal articles promoting drugs are little more than press releases by pharmaceutical companies signed by doctors for hire. 

In the midst of the recent “outing” of unsafe drugs by whistleblowers; the thousands of law suits against drug companies for drug damage; and a plethora of books and articles enumerating the side effects of drugs and the hundreds of thousands of lives lost we see drug companies and the WTO determined to control of dietary supplements through Codex and international trade agreements in their global quest for power.'


Melissa Breyer Which Plastics to Never Use with Food

'Although the apron-wearing, martini-bearing, housewife-in-heels with her rainbow of Tupperware may be a thing of the past, the quest for a well-organized kitchen persists. To see tidy stacks of food-filled plastic containers in the fridge and freezer is comforting in a primal kind of way. But then comes the procession of warnings about storing and cooking food in plastic, and leaching chemicals, and hormone disruption, and ACK! So here it is: The lowdown on plastic food containers.

Flip over your favorite plastic food storage container and check the recycling code number. If you spy a number 3 or 7, well, those containers should probably go to the craft room or garage to store buttons or screws rather than food. If there is no number listed, contact the manufacturer. (And to be fair to Tupperware, they do manufacture products that are not made of these plastic types.)'


The Lethal Medical Failure That's Still Recommended by Your Doctor

by Dr. Mercola

'Even India has put a stop to this deadly experiment. But doctors and U.S. governmental agencies still insist it's essential for every adolescent girl. The death toll in the U.S. from this uncontrolled 'medical experiment' now stands at 89 with 20,575 reported adverse affects. The newest victims on the list? Nursing infants. '

Documentary Reveals The Unhealthy Profits of the Pharmaceutical Industry

'The United States healthcare industry is the world’s biggest – with $300 billion a year spent on prescription drugs alone, and rising. But recent months have seen health scandal after health scandal, with some of the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies fined billions of dollars.
These cases are beginning to reveal vast corruption in the drug industry, with revelations of fraud, of cover-ups of fatal side effects and huge kickbacks paid to doctors. Our investigation reveals the story of how healthcare became unhealthy profit.'

European Commission reneges on assistance to European herbal practitioners


  'Pressure from European Union (EU) citizens forced a recent meeting between Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) and the European Commission (EC) to discuss the impact of the EC’s directive on herbal medicines which will be fully implemented EU-wide as of 1 May 2011. Unfortunately, the meeting, held at the European Parliament on the 29th November 2010, showed how unwilling the EC is to follow through on a pledge it made back in 2008. The pledge was made in the Commission’s report (COM(2008) 584 final) on its first four years of experience with the herbal directive, known as the Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive. In the report, the Commission specifically recognised that the directive was not suitable for holistic traditions, such as Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Crucially, it also indicated it would consider the feasibility of an entirely new regulatory framework for such traditions.'


For disease-fighting foods, think purple


'Beyond its pleasing appearance on the plate, the purple color is a cue for nutritional power.

The dark pigments responsible for the purplish tones are called anthocyanins, a type of phytonutrient, or plant compound, hailed for its potential disease-fighting benefits. Studies suggest anthocyanins may help reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer. Some evidence indicates these purple pigments may protect our brain as we age.

Anthocyanins belong to the flavonoids family of plant compounds. They are among the most potent of all phytonutrients and have gained the attention of scientists worldwide.'


India recognises risks to Ayurveda from Europe


'The word Ayurveda is made up from two Sanskrit words—‘ayus’ meaning life and ‘veda’ meaning knowledge or science.  Simply put, Ayurveda can be described as the ‘science or knowledge of life’, which the early scholars understood to comprise the mind, body, senses and soul.  A view which is little changed today.  Professor Savrikar from Podar Medical College in Mumbai agreed that “unless a person is very happy mentally we can’t say he’s healthy”.

Hence it is not simply a traditional system of medicine, but more a complete philosophy for life.  Ayurveda encompasses a wide range of modalities including yoga, meditation, nutrition, detoxification, massage and the use of herb and mineral preparations.  The fundamentals of Ayurveda were laid down in Vedic scripts, the earliest of which, the Rig Veda, dates back 6,000 years and contains a number of ‘prescriptions’ to help overcome various ailments.  

The aim of Ayurveda is to promote health and prolong life and in so doing eliminate disease and dysfunction.  The key to success involves focusing more on prevention, rather than cure, and by restoring and maintaining balance of body, mind and spirit.'


Emergency Food: Millions of Americans Are Heading to Foodbanks for the First Time in Their Lives


'The good news is there's no reason anyone should ever starve to death in America. The bad news is more and more working 

Americans, many earning what were once middle class incomes, are spending their time and scarce money to find their next meal. 

Emergency Food: More and More It's What's for Dinner
Val Traore, the radiant and gregarious CEO of the Food Bank of South Jersey (FBSJ), wanted to make one thing perfectly clear in our discussion of hunger in America today. "We do not have starvation here in the United States. In Mali," she says, referring to the West African country where about half the population lives below the international poverty lineof $1.25 a day, "if you live in poverty you risk starvation and death. That doesn't happen here in America." It's an important point worth dwelling on.

So what is happening here?'


Blueberries Reverse Rodents' Brain Decline


'Early in 2010, research teams from the U.S. and the UK published positive results from the first-ever controlled clinical trials to test the effects of blueberries on brain function in older adults.
In both trials, people who drank blueberry juice or smoothies showed significant improvements in learning and memory, compared with the control groups.'

Spice slashes blood sugar in just 12 weeks


'If you're diabetic, there's one simple change you can make to your routine to improve your blood sugar control: Eat more cinnamon. That alone could make the difference in how well you manage your blood sugar. In fact, a recent study published in the journal Diabetic Medicine found that cinnamon significantly improves blood sugar in just 12 weeks...plus, it even improves blood pressure in diabetics who take it every day!'

GlaxosmithKline implicated in systemic clinical drug trial deception & insider fraud

‘A psychiatrist on the payroll of GlaxoSmithKline has been sentenced to 13 months in prison after pleading guilty to committing research fraud in clinical trials for antidepressant Paxil. Palazzo enrolled children who did not actually suffer from major depressive or obsessive compulsive disorder, then falsified records & psychiatric diagnoses. GlaxoSmithKline (manuf. of Paxil) paid Palazzo $5,000 for every child she enrolled in the study.

'The case’s significance goes beyond simple research fraud, as Glaxo is now defending itself against charges that for 15 years it deliberately concealed evidence that Paxil increases the risk of suicide in children. Glaxo is also defending itself against accusations that it manipulated data to conceal the risks of its diabetes blockbuster Avandia, and that it failed to warn parents that Paxil may cause birth defects if taken by pregnant women. The company has already agreed to pay more than $1 billion to settle roughly 700 birth defect lawsuits; another 100 or so suits pending.’


Swine flu pandemic outbreak sweeping through Britain even though 70 percent were vaccinated last year

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

 The question you are not allowed to ask vaccine quacks

'The vaccine-pushing quack medical community believes that if they could magically convince 100 percent of the people to get vaccinated, they would have this problem licked. In their own minds, they have unscientifically convinced themselves that a vaccine equals automatic and full protection against a flu virus.

And yet even they won't dare ask this simple question: Of all the people sick from the flu who are right now lying in Britain's hospital beds, what percentage were vaccinated against the flu last year or this year?'


Top 5 Most Overlooked Superfoods

'In the US and the EU most of us get to eat pretty much whatever we want. We have supermarkets full to the brim with every kind of food imaginable, but increasingly people are moving away from  the simple and healthy options in favor of prepackaged meals or processed delights. Whilst these modern marvels may taste good, most of them couldn’t be considered healthy, they might get the job done (just about), but in the long-term a lot of processed foods can actually cause health problems.

It’s amazing really that people don’t stop to consider they could actually get long-term health benefits from eating the right kinds of food, instead choosing to roll the dice on future heart disease and liver failure because of a gluttonous appetite for a poor diet.

Just take a look at some of the amazing benefits you can get by regularly eating the right kind of cheap and healthy superfoods:'


Food Rebels, Guerrilla Gardeners, and Smart-Cookin’ Mamas


'With the advent of industrialism and its widespread application to our food supply – factory farms, genetic engineering, and agricultural chemicals – the struggle between human freedom and authority has reached a critical juncture. In spite of the rapid growth of an alternative food system – local and sustainable food production, farmers’ markets, the public’s rising food consciousness – we become more dependent everyday on industrial agriculture whose representatives insist that it is the only way to feed a hungry world.'


You Are Being Warned


by Dr. Mark Sircus

'Prices are expected to increase due to inclement weather patterns influencing international commodity production and demand. Extreme cold snaps and heavy snowfall in Europe and the United States are increasing demand for oil and destroying or hurting crops; droughts and deluges in Australia are wreaking havoc on sugar and wheat production; Argentinean corn production is being threatened by weather patterns; and parts of China are expected to run short of oil and even coal in the coming winter months. “Things” are getting more expensive. 

'That is a fact. Energy, metals, and the ‘softs’ (grains and cotton) are all headed higher both in the US and elsewhere across the world. In India food inflation is taking off like a plane off a runway, and China is not far behind. India’s annual food inflation went up again for another week on the back of rising prices of fruits, vegetables, and milk and stood at 9.46 percent for the week ending 4 December. Food inflation was 8.60 percent in the previous week. 

'This is the second consecutive week of rise in food inflation. While prices of rice rose by 1.47 percent, vegetables went up by one percent, milk by 17.76 percent, and fruits by 19.75 percent on an annual basis. Pulses and wheat prices declined by 4.24 percent and 11.46 percent, respectively. Onions became costlier by 29.93 Readpercent on an annual basis.'

Wading through the anti-herb coverage

by Dr. Jonathan Wright 

Question: 'I'm a big believer in natural medicine, but I can't help but wonder about the reports that come out saying herbal supplements are useless or dangerous. They always seem to have so much clinical research behind them -- how do I know what's true?'

Dr. Wright: 'Not necessarily. I checked in with my friend and regular “Nutrition & Healing” columnist Kerry Bone to get his take on all the negative hype on herbal supplements. Here's what Kerry had to say:'
