Measles poses no risk to healthy children, says doctor

(NaturalNews) The scripted media is being used to scare and divide the public over new measles outbreaks. It’s always the same unintelligent narrative being pushed: The unvaccinated are putting everyone in danger. Obviously, the push to sell more vaccines is on as fear is used to prey on the population.

Contrary to popular scare tactics, measles is not making a comeback. It is mostly a benign childhood illness, and the unvaccinated are not the ones to worry about. This advice comes from a well-learned pediatrician practicing in Santa Monica, California — Dr. Jay Gordon.

It’s obvious that the media is so scripted to the vaccine agenda because no one is educating the public on nutrition’s role in creating healthy immune systems in children. A healthy immune system, with a strong arsenal of commensal bacteria species, can effectively ward off pathogens, encouraging rapid reproduction of antibodies. A healthy immune system, absorbing vitamins C and A, circulating with vitamin D is a fortress ready to overcome any pathogenic bacteria or virus. Still, we are told that we are deficient in vaccines. The public becomes dependent on this philosophy of immunity, neglecting their inherent, intelligent immune system.

Healthy children need not worry about measlesWith a better understanding of children’s immune system health, a pediatrician practicing in Santa Monica, California, isn’t too worried about the scare of measles. In fact, half the parents who come to see Dr. Jay Gordon either decide to delay vaccinating their children or choose not to vaccinate them in full, according to the CDC’s up-to-date recommendations. Some of his clients do not vaccinate their children at all, opting instead to work with the child’s natural immune system. Dr. Jay Gordon supports parents’ personal decisions and says that measles poses no risk to healthy children anyway.

In a recent interview, Dr. Gordon was told that 90 percent of the unvaccinated children coming from his office were at risk of catching the measles if someone with the measles came into contact with them. While this is possible, Dr. Gordon replied, “You just said it, they’d get measles. Not meningitis, not the plague, not Ebola, they’d get measles. Measles is almost an always a benign childhood illness.”

“This measles outbreak does not pose a great risk to a healthy child,” said Dr. Gordon. “And quite frankly I don’t think it poses any risk to a healthy child.”

Dr. Gordon now signs hundreds of “personal belief exemptions,” reassuring parents that they are not breaking any forced vaccination laws.

In the interview, Dr. Gordon was also asked why these anti-vaccine parents have the right to bring back a disease that had largely been eradicated from the population. Dr. Gordon then set the record straight: “Individual parents making that decision are not the ones bringing back measles. Measles isn’t coming back. We have 70 cases of measles right now, and we have 30 million Californians.”

Some vaccines viruses actually shed and put the population at risk for days, weeksDr. Gordon understands common sense — that viruses don’t originate from a child’s healthy immune system. Those who don’t get the measles vaccine aren’t putting the general population at any greater risk. The vaccinated shouldn’t even have to worry about the unvaccinated anyway. If vaccine-induced immunology is so effective, what do the vaccinated have to worry about? They are worried because they know deep down that vaccine-induced immunity wears off. Why are people recommended to get multiple shots of the same virus?

No one, vaccinated or un-vaccinated, should be blamed for the spread of viruses, unless the vaccine insert and the FDA warn that the actual vaccine may cause the virus to shed, putting the population at risk for days or weeks following vaccination. That’s right, some vaccines, like this live rotavirus vaccine, can shed viruses several days after vaccination, making them capable of infecting the most vulnerable in society. Yes, it’s the vaccinated who put the population at risk! Should they be quarantined and jailed for putting others in harm’s way?

The FDA warns about the ROTARIX vaccine here: “One clinical trial demonstrated that vaccinees transmit vaccine virus to healthy seronegative contacts. The potential for transmission of vaccine virus following vaccination should be weighed against the possibility of acquiring and transmitting natural rotavirus. Caution is advised when considering whether to administer ROTARIX to individuals with immunodeficient close contacts, such as individuals with malignancies, primary immunodeficiency or receiving immunosuppressive therapy.”

California Senator Dr. Pan bribed by Big Pharma to push elimination of vaccine exemptions

(NaturalNews) A California state senator and pediatrician who is lending his support for a new bill that would take away a parent’s right to refuse to have their children vaccinated for any reason is backed, in part, by Big Pharma.

Sen. Richard Pan, a Democrat, helped steer the legislation he co-authored through the Senate’s health committee on a vote of 6-2. The measure, if passed, would remove all parental objections to vaccinations for their school-aged children.

“I’ve personally witnessed the suffering caused by vaccine-preventable diseases, and all children deserve to be safe at school,” Pan said, as reported by Reuters.

“The personal belief exemption is now putting other school children and people in our community in danger.”

But is Pan’s “concern” his own? Or are other (monetary) interests at stake? Who can be sure, given his ties to Big Pharma? As reported earlier by TruthStream Media:

Predictably, but unfortunately, California’s bill to force vaccinations despite religious and philosophical beliefs — ostensibly guaranteed by the 1st Amendment — has been introduced by a pediatrician and state senator with ties to the vaccine industry.

Dr. Pan was among more than two dozen California lawmakers who received campaign donations on record from Merck in the 2010 election cycle, ahead of supporting a 2011 law allowing girls as young as 12 years old to receive Gardasil vaccinations for HPV (manufactured by Merck) without parental consent.

Pan was a member of the state Assembly during the 2010 cycle; as documented by Health Impact News, he reportedly received $1,000 in campaign contributions from Merck.

Ties to Big Pharma

According to ElectionTrack.com, which tracks campaign contributions, Pan has also received money from Genentech, a company that develops drugs “to address significant unmet medical needs” ($1,500); Tenet Healthcare, a Dallas-based corporation providing “leading healthcare services” around the country such as vaccinations ($4,100); Gilead Sciences, a “research-based biopharmaceutical company” ($1,500); mega-health care corporation Johnson & Johnson ($4,100); BioMarin Pharmaceuticals, which “develops and commercializes innovative biopharmaceuticals for serious diseases and medical conditions” ($1,000); Eli Lilly, a global Big Pharma corporation which developed a number of vaccines including the SARS vaccine and which won protection from autism lawsuits shortly after the turn of the century ($4,100); biopharmaceutical firm AmGen ($1,000); McKesson Corporation, a pharmaceutical distributor ($1,000); drugstore chain Rite Aid ($1,000); and others.

As to who will be forced to pay for the added vaccinations, if parents are unable, it appears that, according to Health Impact News, the burden will be shifted to California taxpayers.

“The bill says parents are not financially viable, so taxpayers will have to pay for it,” Paulo Sibaja, director of legislation at the Capitol Resource Institute, told the health news site. “We’re still trying to calculate the cost. But the cost will be 50 percent from the state, 50 percent from the federal government.”

He added that the legislation raises additional issues, such as “who will be legally liable for medical liability, the state or the parents.”

“The bill undermines the parents, who are totally out of the decision affecting their child,” he said.

Bill still has a ways to go

As for Pan’s anti-parental rights legislation, the bill is being proposed after 150 people in several states were diagnosed with measles in recent months; 126 were from California (the “outbreak” began at Disneyland, according to reports).

It has been called an “emergency,” an “epidemic,” a “crisis” — but all told, the number of people affected was infinitesimal given the population of California alone (nearly 39 million).

Reuters noted that the measure has a long way to go before it becomes law:

The proposal, which must clear several other legislative hurdles before a possible Senate floor vote, prompted roughly four hours of heated discussion that saw several people removed for shouting down lawmakers….

Clearly, there are a number of California parents who are not ready to let their state government make this decision for them.

Avoid hypothyroidism by avoiding the causes

(NaturalNews) There are many pathways available for the regulation of the production and conversion of thyroid hormones. Consequently, there are a lot of opportunities for things to go wrong. A healthy thyroid relies on many factors, including, but not limited to, a healthy endocrine system, stable hormone levels, healthy and balanced gut flora, a healthy liver, properly functioning adrenals, healthy kidneys, and clean, healthy blood.

CandidaCandida overgrowth leads to a host of problems and eventually causes autoimmune disease. It also inhibits the body’s ability to properly digest and assimilate nutrition. An overabundance of Candida toxifies the blood in many different ways, which inhibits all gland activity.

Autoimmune diseaseHashimoto’s disease is a condition where the immune system attacks the thyroid. Autoimmune disorders occur when your immune system produces antibodies that attack your own tissues. This is typically due to a leaky gut as a result of an overabundance of Candida due to poor diet and/or antibiotic use.

Conventional Hypothyroidism Treatments People with overactive thyroids are often treated with radioactive iodine or anti-thyroid medications intended to normalize thyroid function. Often these treatments result in permanent hypothyroidism (permanent by conventional medical standards).

Thyroid SurgeryRemoving a portion of your thyroid gland will diminish or halt hormone production. A person who wants to balance their hormones after thyroid removal surgery (or partial removal) needs to either take hormones for life or grow back their thyroid.

Radiation TherapyRadiation used to treat cancers of the head and neck can do serious long-term damage to the thyroid gland.

MedicationsMany medications contribute to hypothyroidism, including, but not limited to, medications for mental health, sleep medications, painkillers, and allergy medications.

Other Drugs (nicotine, caffeine, marijuana)Any stimulant will wear out the thyroid and the adrenals. Many people consume a lot of caffeine over a period of time, eventually leading to adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism.

Marijuana disrupts the entire endocrine system, affecting all glandular hormone production. THC, in particular, lowers the immune system’s ability to fight infection, and can, with heavy use, lower thyroid hormonal output. Also, smoking anything causes the blood to become thick and toxic with free radicals and carcinogens that clog glands and hinder hormone production.

Iodine DeficiencyThe thyroid gland converts iodine into thyroid hormones. Iodine is a trace mineral found primarily in seafood, seaweed, plants grown in iodine-rich soil, unrefined sea salt, and iodized table salt. Many people do not get enough iodine, and contrary to popular belief, this includes many people in developed countries.

Iodine from iodized salt is poorly absorbed and is not a healthy choice for raising iodine levels in the diet as refined table salt contributes to a host of health problems. Iodine is absolutely necessary for thyroid function, but too much iodine (especially iodine outside of food) can impair thyroid function as well.

Genetically Modified FoodsEating genetically modified foods can trigger autoimmune conditions like Graves’ Disease or Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. GMOs destroy the gut lining and lead to a host of problems.

VaccinesVaccines can wreck havoc on the endocrine system and cause autoimmune issues that can end up attacking the thyroid. Formaldehyde and heavy metal toxins such as mercury and aluminum are huge contributors to the hypothyroidism epidemic. Many studies have concluded that the ingredients in vaccines harm thyroid function.

Mercury Amalgam Fillings A mouth full of mercury is usually synonymous with a problematic thyroid. Mercury wrecks havoc on the endocrine system, the nervous system, the brain, and well, the whole body. Amalgam fillings absolutely must be removed to restore normal, healthy thyroid function. See the first two sources for more oral health and this issue.

FluorideEven small amounts of fluoride lessen the pituitary gland’s ability to function, which in turn slows thyroid production. Larger amounts of fluoride, which most people do consume from tap water, disrupt the whole endocrine system and wreck havoc on hormone production. Fluoride consumption over time essentially slows the whole body down, including the brain.

Environmental ToxinsThe thyroid is quite vulnerable to environmental toxins including, but not limited to, pesticides, herbicides, BPAs, jet fuel, perchlorates, thiocyanates, PCBs, lead, chlorine, fluorine, bromine, and many other chemicals we come in contact with that have been proven to cause hypothyroidism. We are bombarded with these chemicals due to the way we construct buildings, the way we produce products, the way we travel, and the way we grow food. Our only defense is high quality nutrition and avoiding toxin exposure through diet, chemical exposure in our environment, and absorption through the products we use for personal care.

Less Often…Less often, hypothyroidism may result from congenital disease, a pituitary disorder, or pregnancy (due to lack of nutrition while pregnant).

Thyroid, Adrenals, and the Body’s HormonesWeakened adrenal glands lead to the development of thyroid disorders. Adrenal fatigue is often, perhaps usually, the root cause of hypothyroidism.

What causes adrenal fatigue? Pretty much the same things that cause low thyroid output. When the adrenals are constantly being worked (due to stress, stimulants, and lack of sleep), an overabundance of cortisol produced by the adrenals will cause a host of problems and completely unbalance the hormone levels of the body. For instance, cortisol can also inhibit proper T3 utilization. When the adrenal glands are performing poorly for a long enough period of time, the body ends up in a state of catabolism; the body begins to break down. Eventually, the adrenals will “crash” and cortisol levels fall well below optimum levels. This is adrenal fatigue.

Truly healing the thyroid typically requires healing the adrenals or the entire endocrine system.

Be sure to read Kill Candida, because an unbalanced ecosystem is the most common precursor to disease, including hypothyroidism. The thyroid will not heal unless the digestive system is healed.

Foods that promote Candida overgrowth and lead to a leaky gut

(NaturalNews) Obviously, there’s sugars. Most everyone who has studied Candida knows that any and all sugars feed yeast. On the other hand, all whole foods contain sugars, and every creature needs sugar to survive, including us. The trick is to eat the unrefined sugars in whole foods that have other nutrients bound to them, like fruit instead of fruit juices.

Most everyone is looking for a healthy sweetener. If you’re suffering from an overgrowth of Candida, no sugar is good sugar. Stevia can be used as a sweetener if the pancreas is working well, but stevia can cause problems to those who have blood sugar issues.

Believe it or not, these “healthy” sugars are not so healthy:
Agave nectar Coconut sugar Maple syrup Brown rice syrup Sugar cane juice Sugar in the rawThat’s the short list. In order to heal the gut, sugars need to go.

But other foods either promote Candida by disrupting healthy gut flora, or they directly feed Candida.

These foods include:

Refined FoodsBreads, pastas, chips, flours, and other refined foods are out. Whole foods are in.

JuicesSweet juices are just another form of refined sugar. Fresh pressed juice has lots of nutrition, but they don’t have fiber. All sweet juices feed yeast including beet and carrot juice.? Vegetables that are not sweet, lemons, limes, and herbs like ginger and turmeric, make juices that do not feed yeast. Instead, they kill yeast.

Grains and Glutinous FoodsGluten cannot be properly digested if you have an overabundance of Candida. Gluten sets up perfect conditions for parasites to thrive in the gut. Even worse, when the gut is permeated by Candida, gluten protein molecules can enter the bloodstream and cause an antihistamine, inflammation response.

When the gut is not healthy, any and all grains are more difficult to digest. This is why the Paleo diet that’s been so popular lately is known for healing the gut.

FruitsGrapes, dates, figs, pineapple, and other very sweet fruits have lots of terrific health benefits, but they are so high in sugars they need to be avoided until the gut heals. With very bad Candida overgrowth, all sweet fruits should be avoided or severely limited for a week or two.

Processed Meats and PorkProcessed meats contain nitrates and other preservatives and artificial colors that kill beneficial flora, which allows Candida to flourish. They also typically contain dextrose or other sugars.

Pork contains retroviruses that survive cooking and may be harmful to those with a weakened digestive system. In addition, conventionally raised animals (non-organic) are typically feed genetically modified foods that should be avoided as well.

GMOsGMOs kill beneficial flora, just like many of them destroy the gut in insects. But Candida doesn’t mind, and neither do other parasites or very opportunistic and dangerous viruses and bacteria. GMOs slowly destroy the whole digestive system.

Dairy ProductsDairy is high in sugar and, therefore, should be avoided by Candida sufferers unless it has powerful probiotics that pass through stomach acid. Incidentally, when a baby has diaper rash, it is almost always Candida, due to formula or because the mother has Candida overgrowth, and the baby is drinking her milk. With healthy mother’s milk, the probiotics in the milk easily pass the baby’s weaker stomach acid and reach the intestinal tract. With adults, while raw milk from healthy animals or humans is better for us, is easier to digest, and does not feed infection to the same degree as pasteurized milk, it still feeds Candida in adults due to the fact that our stomach acid kills the weaker probiotics found in milk.

AlcoholAlcohol destroys healthy gut flora and damages gut tissue, leaving behind the perfect home for Candida.

ChemicalsChemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, artificial colors, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners, and preservatives all at least hinder, if not destroy, healthy gut bacteria.

Peanuts, Pistachios, CashewsPeanuts, pistachios, and cashews are often contaminated with fungi. It is best to avoid them while ridding your body of Candida.

ConclusionBasically, your diet needs to be as healthy as possible while omitting sweet fruits and vegetables until your Candida overgrowth is gone. The healthiest diet is the 80% Raw Food Diet. Just withhold the foods listed above until your gut is healed. And to learn more about natural means to kill Candida and heal your gut, read How to Kill Candida and Balance Your Inner Ecosystem.

Fluoride causes hypothyroidism leading to depression, weight gain

(NaturalNews) The tables are finally starting to turn in regard to the perception that the world has of water fluoridation following the release of at least two reputable studies over the past three years documenting the adverse health effects caused by the chemical.

Researchers from the University of Kent, a public research university based in the United Kingdom, conducted the latest and considerably groundbreaking study on the health effects potentially caused by adding fluoride to the public’s water.

After studying data obtained from nearly every medical practice in England, scientists found that fluoride may be increasing the risk for hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid, a condition in which the thyroid gland fails to produce enough hormones, resulting in symptoms such as fatigue, obesity and depression.

Published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, the study included the largest population ever analyzed in relation to the adverse health effects caused by water fluoridation.

Recent UK study includes the “largest population ever studied in regard to adverse effects of elevated fluoride exposure”

After collecting data from 99 percent of England’s 8,020 general medical practices, researchers found that the locations with fluoridated water were 30 percent more likely to have high levels of hypothyroidism, compared to areas with low, natural levels of the chemical in the water.

This means that up to 15,000 people could be suffering from depression, weight gain, fatigue and aching muscles, all of which could theoretically be prevented if fluoride were removed from the water, according to The Telegraph.

“Overall, there were 9 percent more cases of underactive thyroid in fluoridated places,” reports Newsweek, which also notes that 10 percent of England’s water is fluoridated compared with nearly 70 percent of America’s.

The science paper also compared the fluoridated city of Birmingham with the city of Manchester, which refrains from fluoridating, and found that doctor’s offices in Birmingham were nearly twice as likely to report high levels of hypothyroidism.

The new report has some experts questioning their stance on water fluoridation.

“The study is an important one because it is large enough to detect differences of potential significance to the health of the population,” said Trevor Sheldon, a medical researcher and dean of the Hill York Medical School who has published numerous studies in this field.

Sheldon, who in the past supported fluoride, admits that the “case for general water fluoridation” is no longer clear.

New fluoride study contradicts last year’s report by Public Health England that states fluoride is “safe and effective” for improving dental health

Released in March of last year, Public Health England’s report states that “there is no evidence of harm to health in fluoridated areas,” and no differences were found between fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas in regard to rates of hip fractures, osteosarcoma (a form of bone cancer), cancers overall, Down’s syndrome births and all other recorded causes of death.

New research, however, suggests that the spike in the number of cases of hypothyroidism in areas such as the West Midlands and the North East of England is “concerning for people living in those areas.”

“The difference between the West Midlands, which fluoridates, and Manchester, which doesn’t was particularly striking. There were nearly double the number of cases in Manchester,” said the study’s lead author Stephen Peckham.

Women 15 times more likely to develop underactive thyroid

“Underactive thyroid is a particularly nasty thing to have and it can lead to other long term health problems. I do think councils need to think again about putting fluoride in the water. There are far safer ways to improve dental health.”

Hypothyroidism is particularly a cause for concern for women, as they’re 15 times more likely than men to develop the condition. Previous studies suggest that fluoride inhibits the thyroid’s ability to use iodine, which is an essential mineral for a healthy thyroid, the master gland in the human body.

Gardasil vaccine: Spain joins growing list of countries to file criminal complaints against manufacturer

(NaturalNews) Attorney Don Manuel Saez Ochoa filed a criminal complaint against Merck-Sanofi Pasteur Laboratories, Spanish National Health authorities, and the regional health authorities of the La Rioja province on behalf of Zuriñe Jimenez Guereño and her mother Doña Maria del Carmen Jimenez Guereño for injuries and disabilities suffered by Zuriñe after the administration of Gardasil. (Story by Norma Erickson, republished from SaneVac.org)

The complaint states that Merck Laboratories failed to use an inert placebo during clinical trials, thereby manipulating data and marketing Gardasil under false pretences. Despite complaints of several young women with similar new medical conditions after Gardasil injections, the Spanish health authorities ignored calls for a moratorium on the use of Gardasil until the safety issues were resolved.

Both regional and national health authorities made no attempt to verify the accuracy of the safety data Merck submitted to gain approval for the widespread administration of Gardasil as a cancer preventative; nor did they make any attempt to inform the public that an already proven safe and effective means of controlling cervical cancer was already in existence.

The complaint goes on to say both national and local health authorities had adequate knowledge regarding the potential harmful effects of Gardasil and chose to recommend administration of the HPV vaccine anyway. The complaint alleges this showed an absolute disregard for the health and well-being of young Spanish girls.

According to the complaint, the attitude of the Merck pharmaceutical company and Spanish health authorities (both national and regional) before, during and after the administration of Gardasil shows they care nothing about the risk to which medical consumers expose themselves whenever Gardasil is used.

The complaint states, prior to administration, no one was concerned about possible adverse reactions to the vaccine. When adverse reactions did occur, those who experienced them were treated with contempt leaving them in a state of helplessness. There was allegedly not one single official inquiry about the girls’ post-Gardasil conditions even though they were healthy prior to being injected with Gardasil.

An outcry from the public calling for a moratorium on the use of Gardasil until safety issues were resolved was ignored by Spanish health authorities. Injections of Gardasil continued despite the damage left behind.

According to Attorney Don Manuel Saez Ochoa,

(claiming) a possible exemption arguing that they did not know at the time of processing, the dangers of the vaccine (Gardasil) is laughable……Frankly this attitude seems clearly malicious and constitutes the offense of injury as per Artile 149.1 of the Criminal Code that states: To cause another, by any means or process, the loss or worthlessness of an organ or principal member, or a sense, impotence, sterility, severe deformity, or severe somatic or mental illness, shall be punished with imprisonment of six to twelve years.

Charges contained in the official criminal complaint

Merck-Sanofi Pasteur, Spain’s National and Regional (La Rioja) health authorities are charged with the following:

fraudulent marketing and/or administration of an inadequately tested vaccine;failure to inform the public about the potential risks of using Gardasil;clear infringement of the right to informed consent;ignoring new medical conditions in those who used Gardasil despite the similarity of their symptoms and the relatively short period of time between vaccine administration and the onset of symptoms;ignoring established and new scientific evidence illustrating the potential harmful effects of Gardasil ingredients and manufacturing methods;callous disregard for those suffering new medical conditions post-Gardasil;failure to inform the public that HPV infections are simply one of the risk factors involved in the development of cervical cancer;failure to inform the public that 90% of all HPV infections clear on their own without medical intervention;failure to inform the publlic about alternative methods of controlling cervical cancer; andcriminal liability for the injuries resulting from the administration of Gardasil
Even if one assumes that Merck-Sanofi Pasteur and all of the government health officials were not aware of the potential risks and lack of proven benefit of Gardasil, there has been plenty of scientific and medical evidence provided since 2007 when the vaccine was approved for use in Spain.

Given their expertise, all of these people were aware of the fact that there are several methods to control cervical cancer that have already been proven safe and effective.

Zuriñe was a healthy, athletic and academically gifted girl until she received the recommended three doses of Gardasil via an immunization program at her school when she was 13 years old. Three weeks later, she was admitted to the emergency room of her local hospital suffering from a multitude of symptoms including dizziness, fatigue and convulsions.

After receiving no answers from her doctors, the conversations began to include hints of conversion disorder. Her parents decided to take her to a private specialist.

According to this specialist, Dr. Mark Mazzuca:

Zuriñe suffers severe cell disease, oxidative stress linked to a demineralization of her body. To put it graphically, she is an 18 year old girl locked in a cell body of a person over sixty years old. Zuriñe also suffers from hard infield Ortostatiaco Postural Syndrome polyneuropathy revealing a central character. It also presents as liver and bladder inflammation.

Five years after her last Gardasil shot, Zuriñe’s life bears little resemblance to anything she once considered normal. In and out of hospitals dealing with ‘mysterious’ new medical conditions every day. No one knows how much of her normal life she will be able to regain.

Thousands of young women around the world are finding themselves in the same position as Zuriñe. They have gone from being happy, active, and healthy to facing a multitude of autoimmune problems and neurological disorders. For them, the ‘possible’ adverse effects of Gardasil have become an all too harsh and brutal reality.

It is time for those responsible to be held accountable for their actions. Criminal prosecution is quite possibly the only way to accomplish that goal.

Perhaps six to twelve years in prison would remind those responsible what it means to conduct yourself in an ethical manner. Perhaps they would remember that their first duty is to maintain the public health, not destroy it.

On July 30, the Judge decided to open criminal proceedings and investigation of the facts. The first criminal case in Spain regarding Gardasil injuries and potential criminal liability begins.

Junk food companies buy off health professionals to boost sales of diabetes-causing soda

(NaturalNews) In an era where more Americans are discovering that sugary soda and other junk foods are some of the leading contributors to a range of health problems, desperate beverage conglomerates are co-opting health professionals as a means of boosting sales.

As reported by The Associated Press, Coca-Cola officials are now partnering with nutrition and fitness experts who are in turn suggesting that Coke products can be treats, even as the nation has finally gotten a handle on its epidemic of junk-food-related obesity, diabetes, cancer and cardiac problems.

The AP further noted:

In February, several of the experts wrote online posts for American Heart Month, with each including a mini-can of Coke or soda as a snack idea. The pieces – which appeared on nutrition blogs and other sites including those of major newspapers – offer a window into the many ways food companies work behind the scenes to cast their products in a positive light, often with the help of third parties who are seen as trusted authorities.

A spokesman for the soda maker, Ben Sheidler, compared those posts to product placement arrangements between companies and television programs.

“We have a network of dietitians we work with,” Sheidler, who declined to say how much the company pays experts, told AP. “Every big brand works with bloggers or has paid talent.”

The ‘everybody does it’ defense There are other companies, too, that use similar strategies, including Kellogg and General Mills, each of whom produce GMO-filled sugary breakfast cereals. The campaigns include providing dieticians with continuing education courses, funding studies that tout supposedly nutritional facets of their products and by offering health experts newsletters geared to them.

“PepsiCo Inc. has also worked with dietitians who suggest its Frito-Lay and Tostito chips in local TV segments on healthy eating. Others use nutrition experts in sponsored content; the American Pistachio Growers has quoted a dietitian for the New England Patriots in a piece on healthy snacks and recipes and Nestle has quoted its own executive in a post about infant nutrition,” AP noted.

In one Coke-related post in February, the entry referred to a “refreshing beverage option such as a mini can of Coca-Cola.” Another recommended “portion-controlled versions of your favorites, like Coca-Cola mini cans, packs of almonds or pre-portioned desserts for a meal.”

In a statement to the AP, Coca-Cola said the company wants to “help people make decisions that are right for them” and, like everyone else in the industry, Coke works with health experts “to help bring context to the latest facts and science around our products and ingredients.” The company further stated that any communications by the experts it partners with always contain the appropriate disclosures (and quite probably in small print).

But at best, the effort by dieticians to tout sugary drinks as somehow healthy in any portion is disingenuous; at worst it is diabolical.

How can unhealthy foods be healthy? In 2013, for example, NaturalNews reported that “a study of 4,000 ethnically diverse individuals aged 45 to 84 who did not have cardiovascular disease, researcher Christina Shay, PhD found that women who drank two or more sugar sweetened beverages daily were four times as likely to develop higher than average levels of triglycerides compared to those who drank less than one of these beverages per day.” The same study found that the women also had more belly fat and higher cholesterol.

Earlier studies, we noted, also found that men were at higher risk of heart attacks if they drank sugary sodas every day; the risk went up with each serving.

A range of studies, for the last decade certainly, have shown time and again that sugary soft drinks boost obesity, especially in children, which in turn leads to higher rates of diabetes and, eventually, heart disease.

Still, there are shill stories like this one and this one that attempt to convince consumers that unhealthy sodas and snacks are – healthy.

It’s unconscionable.

Ebola-infected health worker being treated at NIH hospital now in “critical” condition

(NaturalNews) The health status of the 11th U.S. patient to be treated for Ebola has worsened from serious to critical condition, according to new reports. The unnamed patient, a health worker who was admitted to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, on March 13, had initially been admitted to the hospital in serious condition, only to quickly degenerate to critical status.

The identity of the patient, and whether or not it’s a male or female, has not been publicly disclosed. But reports indicate that the patient is being held in a special isolation unit similar to the one in which nurse Nina Pham of Dallas, Texas, was treated. Officials at NIH say that no other suspected or confirmed Ebola patients are currently being treated at the hospital.

The patient had reportedly traveled to Ebola-stricken areas of Africa prior to catching Ebola and was later brought back to the U.S. by charter plane for treatment at the NIH. The only information about the patient being made publicly available is the fact that he or she had been volunteering in an Ebola treatment unit in Sierra Leone before contracting the virus.

“We knew that Sierra Leone was still simmering and people were still getting infected in Sierra Leone,” stated Bobby Gborgar Joe, an educational specialist at Maryland’s Department of Human Resources, to CBS Baltimore about the developments. Joe has already lost 16 family members in Liberia to Ebola. “[B]ecause of the close proximity,” he added, “we knew that sooner or later somebody was going to show up.”

This latest U.S. Ebola patient represents the second one to be treated at the NIH for the disease since the current outbreak was identified more than a year ago. Since that time, 10 others besides the new patient have been treated for Ebola at various U.S. hospitals.

Ebola false flag sparks mass vaccination push for measles? Reluctant to let a good crisis go to waste, several major industries are eagerly trying to capitalize on the Ebola outbreak, including the vaccine industry. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently made an announcement urging mass vaccinations for measles, pertussis and other so-called “vaccine-preventable” diseases throughout West Africa in response to the continued fallout.

“We are calling for the intensification of routine immunization services in all areas, and for mass measles vaccination campaigns in areas that are free of Ebola transmission,” stated Dr. Jean-Marie Okwo-Bele, Director of Immunization, Vaccines and Biologicals at WHO.

The organization noted: “Any disruption of immunization services, even for short periods, will result in an increase in the number of susceptible individuals, and will increase the likelihood of vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks.”

What a convenient and utterly unscientific bit of propaganda from WHO on behalf of the vaccine industry, which is chomping at the bit to expand its market in impoverished Africa. Somehow, injecting African babies with aluminum adjuvants, live viruses, aborted human fetal tissue and chemical preservatives will magically make Ebola go away, according to WHO.

Not to be outdone in exploiting Africa for financial gain, internet search giant Google also announced that it has designed a special “Ebola-proof tablet” capable of withstanding chlorine dousing, high humidity, storms and other elements that would destroy an Apple iPad in a matter of seconds.

“The Android device, based in a waterproof Sony Xperia with an extra protective casing, allows medics to safely record and share patient temperatures and symptoms over days and weeks,” wrote Aislinn Laing for The Telegraph. “Its manufacturers say it can withstand the storms and high humidity that are commonplace in the Ebola zone of West Africa.”

Factory farming and modern food production dangers exposed

(NaturalNews) Today, obesity and chronic disease is out of control around the world – especially in the United States – with no end in sight. Food allergies, chronic fatigue, heart disease and cancer have many people concerned about their future. So, let’s think about this, could our current food production system and conventional farming techniques be causing all this pain?

GMO food producers, like Monsanto, are very upset. They know the general public is waking up to the dangers of our ‘modern’ food production techniques – especially genetically manipulated food ingredients. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, find out why GMO seeds, conventional farming and corporate-run food production systems fail to feed the world safely and effectively. This is real ‘insider’ information – rarely discussed anywhere in the world about the future of our food supply.

The truth is getting out: Food corporations have been lying to the public for yearsThe uneducated public – which continues to be victimized by mainstream news – never get to hear the truth about why so many people suffer today – due to chronic disease conditions. Today, we intend to change all of that – with a little dose of ‘reality’. (Just don’t shoot the messenger)

Conventional medicine will NEVER cure disease and government-run health agencies don’t have the nerve to do the right thing – because they are completely controlled by the pharmaceutical industry – which profits greatly from all these chronic disease conditions.

Simply put, our food supply has changed dramatically over the years and its nutritional value has gone downhill – year after year. To make matters worse, our current food system is throwing more and more toxic chemicals into the growing process – adding to the health threats we face on a daily basis. Conventionally-trained physicians are brainwashed into believing – from their first days in medical school – that the ‘only way’ to treat disease is with pharmaceutical medications.

This is why Western medicine will never fix the problem. If you’re looking for solutions … you’ve come to the right place. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman offers an exclusive interview with Dr. John Ikerd, an expert in food growing systems and agricultural sustainability issues. This program will clearly outline a way out of this mess and its truths are undeniable.

Proof: The government and corporations care little about public safety or healthJust a quick look at independent scientific research reveals that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) cause cancer, sterility, miscarriages, seizures and even death! Of course, ‘industry experts’ from companies like Monsanto and DuPont want us to believe that GMOs will feed the world (safely). But, you and I both know that’s a bold face lie – since its invention has only added more chemicals to our food; sickened farmers and poisoned the environment.

Shocking (true) facts: Monsanto really does NOT care about public health:

1. They are opposed to GMO labeling laws. I guess they want to keep everyone in the dark.
2. Their GMO seeds lack adequate FDA / USDA safety testing. In fact, the FDA just decides to trust Monsanto to ‘do the right thing.’ (How reassuring is that?)
3. Through consolidation efforts, the actions of Monsanto put small farmers out of business.
4. After GMO crops fail, farmers are committing suicide because of massive debt issues.
5. Glyphosate, the active (toxic) herbicide ingredient – created by Monsanto contributes to massive pollution around the world.
6. There are 500,000 Agent Orange babies – need I say more? (Monsanto created Agent Orange)
7. Monsanto actively blocks any government regulations on GMOs. They’ll stop at nothing to force the public to consume these genetically engineered foods.
8. Monsanto has been found to be guilty of false advertising and scientific fraud.
9. GMO crops do NOT increase yields.
10. GMO foods trigger digestive disorders and food allergies.

In order to protect our health – we must be well-educated about the dangers within our food supply. What could be more important? Join us for a valuable program about health and family.

This week’s guest: Dr. John Ikerd, Ph.D., a leading expert in food security and sustainability issues

Learn how can we feed the world safely and effectively without harming the planet – Sun. Apr. 26

Dr. John Ikerd, Professor Emeritus of Agricultural Economics, was raised on a small dairy farm in southwest Missouri and received his BS, MS, and Ph.D. degrees in agricultural economics from the University of Missouri. He worked in private industry for a time and spent thirty years in various professorial positions at four different state universities before retiring in early 2000.

Since retiring, he spends most of his time speaking and writing about issues related to sustainability with an emphasis on economics and agriculture. His passion is to support the growing popularity of the small family farm; illustrate the significance of sustaining people, not just agriculture; and, most importantly, emphasize why the world needs small farms for food security.

Discover the hidden (ugly) truth about conventional farming techniques. Today, our ‘modern’ food production system is a real threat to human health and the environment. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, you will learn what the mainstream media has been ignoring and why you should be very concerned about our food supply. Don’t miss this important health program.

Why this mattersChildren in America today are growing up on processed junk food and chemical-laced agriculture products that are making them sick and diseased.

Cancer, diabetes, heart disease, kidney stones, asthma and literally hundreds of other chronic degenerative diseases are all fundamentally caused by horrendous dietary habits that keep the population nutritionally deficient while heavily contaminated with synthetic chemical pesticides, herbicides and fungicides.

At the same time, most children today are disconnected from their food, having no direct experience of growing food themselves. Food self-reliance is at an all-time low for America, even while other countries like Russia and Cuba have far greater food security thanks to a network of home gardens and small farms.

In America, farming has been hijacked by corporate interests which rely on the heavy deployment of GMOs and cancer-causing chemicals that pollute the environment, harm animal life and contaminate the food consumed by the public. Instead of food being produced for nourishment for a better society, it’s grown for profit to produce dollars for greed-driven corporations. The higher the profit of almost any food, the more nutritionally depleted it is, which explains why the interests of the corporations utterly contradict the long-term interests of a healthy society.

I believe the future of America quite literally depends on finding new ways to produce healthy, nutritious food that’s affordable, easy to grow and locally produced. Without healthy children, no nation has a sustainable future because it will be driven into bankruptcy by health care costs that spiral out of control from treating preventable disease. Healthy, nutritious food — that citizens can grow themselves for pennies on the dollar — is the answer.

Help support the Food Rising food system donation waveYou can help make this happen!

For the next 7 days, make any purchase at www.BokuSuperfood.com and 20% of net proceeds will be donated to the Food Rising project to fund grow systems for children and schools across America.
