People of CA to vote against Big Pharma

This is really good new, if California follows throuogh.

From the desk of Jenny Thompson:

Dear Reader,

He’s being called a “Pharmatrician.”

I’m talking about pediatrician and California Senator Richard Pan, who authored the state’s dictatorial SB 277 law mandating vaccines for school kids. 

The bill, which was ironically signed into law a few days before the 4th of July, strips California parents and grandparents of one of their most basic rights. That’s the right to refuse having the CDC vaccine schedule forced on their children, or else. 

No shots, no school. No more personal or religious exemptions allowed

But California residents have said “enough.” They’ve joined together to boot Pan out of office by having him unseated with a statewide vote. 

And they’re not taking SB 277 lying down, either. 

A referendum is in the works to get the vaccine law on the ballot next year. That would put it directly in the hands of the voters and let them decide its fate, rather than politicians bought and paid for by the drug companies. 

“This is we, the people, exercising the people’s veto.” 

That’s what former assemblyman Tim Donnelly told the press when he started the referendum against SB 277. He said it’s not about the safety of vaccinations, but the “freedom of a parent to make an informed decision” without being punished by the state. 

As it stands now, even if one shot is missed, a child in California will be barred from school. For example, if parents opt to skip the hepatitis B vaccine — a risky shot for a sexually transmitted disease — but have allowed their child to have every other shot, the child would still be denied an education. 

Donnelly’s referendum will need to gather 366,000 signatures in the coming months, and he’s recruited several thousand volunteers to help collect them. He said the effort has galvanized state residents to the point where “we’ve got hardcore Christian conservatives working side by side with people on the far left.” 

Now where Pan is concerned, all that’s needed is close to 36,000 signatures from voters in his district to trigger what’s called a “recall election.” Once they reach that goal, an election for Pan’s seat would take place within six months. 

Pan originally said that he wasn’t at all concerned — but if he thought this was a joke, he’s in for a rude awakening. 

Organizers have already jumped through several legal hoops with the state to start the recall, and volunteers are out collecting signatures. 

And what Pan needs to worry about most is that this election is going to draw even more attention to his cozy and suspicious relationship with Big Pharma. 

The Sacramento Bee reported that Pan received more than $95,000 from drug companies, making him the top recipient of pharma dollars among California lawmakers. And the drugmakers who donated, and helped push SB 277 into law, reads like a who’s who of the pharma world. Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline, Eli Lilly and AstraZeneca were among the 20 leading names who threw more than $3 million into the hat. 

No child in America should be denied an education. But what Pan and his political colleagues are pushing is a type of government-backed discrimination — one that allows politicians to decide who can attend school based on nothing but a vaccination history. 

And hopefully the citizens of California won’t let this new brand of prejudice — and this attack on our freedoms — to take root. 

To Your Good Health,

More on Amalgam

 

Amalgam faultsFrom the Desk of Jenny Thompson:

Dear Reader,

They’ve been shaped, packed and crammed into millions of molars for decades.

But those dental amalgams — also known as silver fillings — are carrying a dark and dangerous secret that you probably won’t hear about at your local dentist’s office.

They’re up to 50 percent mercury — one of the most toxic substances on the planet.

For years the American Dental Association has asked us to ignore the science on dental amalgams. They’ve argued that if these fillings could really cause everything from developmental delays to Alzheimer’s, the FDA never would have allowed them on the market.

But now, thanks to pressure from three consumer groups, the FDA is finally admitting something it should have come clean about 39 years ago. It approved dental amalgams without a shred of proof that they’re safe.

It took five long years for the FDA to respond to three consumer groups that petitioned the agency asking for a ban on dental amalgams. And now we know why — the FDA was in no rush to admit a dangerous and embarrassing mistake.

According to Leslie Kux, associate commissioner for policy, the FDA has “very limited to no clinical information available” on whether dental amalgams are harmful for pregnant women, their unborn children, infants, and kids under the age of six.

Basically, Kux wrote, the FDA didn’t have enough information to act on the serious concerns raised by the petitions — one way or the other.

And if it sounds like the FDA is admitting that it allowed dental amalgams onto the market — and into millions of our mouths — without any safety data, well, that’s exactly what happened.

In 1976, under pressure from dental groups like the ADA, the FDA gave dental amalgams a “grandfathered” approval. They’d been used in America for so long, the FDA reasoned, that they must be safe.

How’s that for logic?

Of course, even the dental industry used to agree that amalgams were dangerous. Even as far back as 1840, the American Society of Dental Surgeons banned its members from using the fillings.

And for good reason. Studies have shown that constant chewing and grinding causes toxic mercury vapors to be released and absorbed by the lungs and oral mucous membranes. Especially for unborn babies and kids, that mercury can increase the chances of brain damage, hearing loss, and vision problems.

Mercury exposure has also been linked to Alzheimer’s and MS, as well as kidney disease. And according to the European Commission, “the largest source of mercury exposure for most people in developed countries is inhalation of mercury vapor from dental amalgams.”

That’s why amalgams are even banned in Scandinavia.

Even our government — when it doesn’t have a lobbyist from the ADA whispering in its ear — admits that mercury is incredibly toxic.

This is the same government that banned mercury thermometers, and when a compact fluorescent light bulb breaks the EPA recommends leaving the room to protect yourself from the mercury vapors.

So when it was considering the petitions to ban amalgams, the FDA made a few small concessions. They agreed to finally explain on the FDA website that mercury is the primary component of so-called “silver fillings” and that fetuses and young kids may be more sensitive to the vapors.

Of course, how many of us consult the FDA’s website before heading off for a dental appointment?

At the end of the day, the FDA is allowing these poisonous fillings to stay on the market, even though it admits it can’t vouch for their safety.

Fortunately, lots of dentists have now abandoned amalgams in favor of safer fillings. So you’re free to “just say no” to the idea of either you or your kids being stuck with toxic teeth.

Even if the FDA refuses to stop saying yes.

Polio

autism vaccinesFrom the desk of Jenny Thompson on Polio

You’ve read the stories. Maybe you’ve seen the terrible pictures.

American children were perfectly healthy one day, and paralyzed the next. Many were placed on ventilators to save their lives.

It’s been months since a mysterious virus struck more than 1,100 children across America — and many of the kids still aren’t better. They use crutches and walkers to stand. They’ve lost the use of their arms and hands.

Parents say they’re being kept in the dark. The CDC claims its hunting for answers.

But these children aren’t victims of some terrible new disease. They’re just the latest casualties of what might be the greatest cover-up in medical history.

———————————————————————-
It’s all in the name
———————————————————————-

The CDC declared the U.S. “polio free” in 1979. But the story that polio is gone, vanished by a wonder vaccine, is just that — a story.

Because polio — or at least what we all used to agree was polio — is still very much with us. And I’m not talking about in Third World countries, but right here in places like Colorado, Connecticut and New York.

Right now, there are well over 100 (the true number is unknown) paralyzed children in the U.S., struck down by what’s now being called EV-D68 or Enterovirus 68.

But Dr. Suzanne Humphries has another name for it — polio.

Humphries, a currently practicing medical doctor and author, says that EV-D68 as well as a host of other viruses and paralytic diseases, “would have been called polio in the 1950s and before.”

And why they’re not today is one of the most sinister vaccine secrets of all. One that health officials will never, ever admit to.

It’s been about 60 years since mainstream medicine and government scientists changed the definition of polio — all to make the vaccine appear more effective.

Before the vaccine came out, Dr. Humphries says, health-care workers were “vigilantly programmed” to always be on the lookout for polio. But after the polio vaccine trials were underway in the 1950s, what health care workers started looking for changed dramatically.

When someone exhibited symptoms of polio, the goal was to note who was vaccinated and who wasn’t. If you were vaccinated, doctors no longer would diagnose you with polio — because acknowledging you had polio would expose the shortcomings and limitations of the vaccine.

Instead of admitting patients had polio, doctors would stubbornly diagnose them with a mysterious non-polio virus — the exact same diagnosis many children are being given today.

That’s how we “eradicated” polio in America — by changing the definition of the disease to include only the viruses the vaccine was effective against.

“The face of polio may have changed,” writes Dr. Humphries in her book Dissolving Illusions, “but it was mostly due to the power of the pen…”

And there are plenty of conditions other than EV-D68 that would have previously been called polio. Transverse Myelitis, is one. It’s an inflammation of the spinal cord that can affect babies as young as five months old.

And it hasn’t exactly been eradicated. There are around 1,400 new cases of it each year that can cause permanent paralysis and can force children onto ventilators (the modern-day equivalent of the iron lung).

Dr. Humphries may be the latest to speak out against the great polio lie, but she wasn’t the first.

In 1962, Dr. Bernard Greenberg, the widely respected head of the biostatistics department at the University of North Carolina School of Public Health, testified before Congress that polio statistics were being muddled to “inappropriately” establish how effective the vaccine really was.

Dr. Greenberg said that by simply changing the “diagnostic criteria,” the cases of those paralyzed by polio were bound to drop, “whether or not any vaccine was used.”

The CDC claims it is still investigating the current EV-D68 outbreak, and that there are “a lot of different reasons” kids can become suddenly paralyzed.

But admitting the real reason is polio…that looks like something it will never do.

As Dr. Humphries says in her book, “By now it should be obvious that there was more to the ‘polio’ story than a crippling virus and a world that was saved by a vaccine.”

The Goodness in Coffee

From the desk of Jenny Thompson:

By now you’ve no doubt heard the news that has gladdened the hearts of coffee lovers everywhere.

A new study out of South Korea has found that people who drink three to five cups of Joe a day are least likely to have coronary calcium deposits in their arteries — or what’s more commonly known as “hardening of the arteries.”

Coffee's Good

That means that moderate coffee consumption can significantly lower your risk of heart disease.

And this isn’t the first time that coffee has been found to have health benefits.

A couple years ago, the National Institutes of Health concluded a 14-year survey of more than 400,000 AARP members. That study found that drinking from two to six or more cups daily, whether regular or decaf, makes you less likely to die prematurely from all sorts of causes — including diabetes, heart and lung disease, stroke and infection.

Drinking coffee even lessened the risk of fatal accidents (perhaps because coffee makes people more alert).

But there was one small exception to that earlier report.

The study found that male coffee drinkers had a slightly higher chance of dying from cancer. And while the cancer death rate in women did not seem to be affected, more research is planned to see if there’s any link between coffee and various types of cancer.

So might coffee have a dark side?

Well, that could depend on the kind you drink.

There are things in coffee that could conceivably cause cancer: residues of toxic chemicals. In fact, it’s one of the most heavily sprayed crops in the world.

And because coffee is imported, there’s no U.S. oversight of the type and amount of pesticides used.

Fortunately, there is a way to eliminate that risk. By switching to an organic brew, you can be assured that the healthy compounds your coffee contains don’t include these poisons.

And you don’t have to be Donald Trump to be able to afford organic coffee, either.

There are numerous brands out there that you can get at a relatively modest price. And you can find organic coffee these days in Walmart and Target, as well as at most supermarkets.

Monsanto & our Children

From the desk of Jenny Thompson:

Monsanto-bannedMonsanto doesn’t want to be thought of as the evil company that brought its genetically modified monster to our dinner table anymore.

No, now it’s going to be hip and cool and in with the “in” crowd.

To do that it hired Vance Crow, a smooth-talking 32-year-old whose job it is to fool millennials (kids born from the 1980s to the early 2000s) that GMOs are safe, and Monsanto is their friend.

He’s the new “director of millennial engagement” (yes, that’s an actual job title!) for Monsanto, a hip young foodie who’s out to save the company.

Vance started his gig by riding along with Monsanto seed salesmen. That’s the farming version of a drug rep. And Vance is out to convince the kids and grandkids of farmers that Monsanto’s new technology is the next iPhone.

He’s also traveling the country to try and trick his non-farming peers into believing Monsanto is the neatest thing to come along since sliced bread.

He says that he’s looking for kids in their 20s and 30s to talk to about understanding “the sciences behind what we do” and “our impact on people.”

Well, Vance, it looks like millions of people, of all ages, already know what Monsanto’s “impact on people” has been.

I mean when marches against Monsanto have become regular events, and locales all over the country are enacting legislation to label GM foods, I think it’s Monsanto that isn’t getting the message.

To vaccinate or not to vaccinate.

To vaccinate or not to vaccinate. Don’t do it, do a little research first.

From the desk of Jenny Thompson: Sometimes I wonder if the CDC is just the government’s version of “Let’s Make a Deal.”

And in this case our “deal” is Vaccines Whya real Zonk — you know, that worthless prize behind one of the curtains.

But instead of getting a goat, we’re getting Tamiflu, something about as useless in treating the flu as that goat would be.

And the CDC is trying as hard as it can to keep the Tamiflu myth going, despite researchers, doctors and nurses who keep yelling “Pick the other curtain!”

Its latest scheme was announced in a big press conference last week. CDC Director Tom Frieden said that not only should doctors keep on giving out Tamiflu by the boatload, they should do it before they’re even sure patients have the flu.

And to top off that “expert” advice, Frieden threw in an insult to docs everywhere, saying they aren’t prescribing the drug as “recommended.”

Well, thank goodness for that. Because Tamiflu, as just about everyone seems to know by now, doesn’t work.

Even the FDA knows it! The agency’s expert committee voted not to approve Tamiflu back 16 years ago. It said the drug had never been shown to reduce rates of pneumonia or death.

The FDA approved it anyway, but later made Roche issue a statement saying the drug “has not been proven to have a positive impact on the potential consequences” of the flu.

In other words, it doesn’t work.

So why in the world does the CDC keep running these Tamiflu reruns over and over again?

Some doctors are wondering if the CDC is getting kickbacks from Big Pharma to sell it. Others are calling the agency a bunch of “Keystone cops,” pitching us a worthless drug that causes hallucinations, delirium and a host of other scary side effects.

Legal Drugs third cause of Death, are you a user?

drugsI know a few people in their 70’s and I contribute there life to the fact they just won’t go to a doctor.  People ask me what I do for health problems, I suggest learning everything you can about the problem and take charge of your life by finding the natural way to treat the problem.  One big natural way is to find a doctor that doesn’t use pharmaceutical drugs, find a holistic doctor.

From the desk of Jenny Thompson:

Heart disease and cancer are the first and second leading causes of death in the United States, according to the latest statistics. 

Care to guess what comes in a close third? 

That would be errors made by healthcare providers, which account for about a half million deaths a year, says a top expert. 

I want to make sure you hear that again. Over 500,000 people a year die from medical mistakes. 

Medical author Joe Graedon, who’s also a pharmacy professor, calls such errors “the equivalent of three jumbo jets crashing every day of the year and killing everyone aboard.” 

In fact, Graedon and his wife Terry, who co-host a public radio program called The People’s Pharmacy, have just come out with a new book on the subject. It’s called Top Screwups Doctors Make—and How to Avoid Them. 

But with Graedon, it’s personal. His own mother died as the result of such an error, committed by a nurse. 

As he points out, “No one is counting the bodies. There is no outrage, no plan to change a system that allows too many to die unnecessarily. The medical profession seems largely immune to the consequences of its errors.” 

And the most common one, he says, is a wrong diagnosis. 

It’s most often the result of doctors not wanting to take time to consider alternative explanations for symptoms. Patient overload and an unwillingness to seek help from other doctors are also contributing factors. 

All of which is why it’s so important for you to “take charge” if you or a loved one is ill. 

Because asking the right question could be the only thing that can save your life — or theirs.

Ebola

Are you concerned about Ebola?  Look at Colloidal Silver.

From Jenny Thompson:

Colloidal silver is a treatment that consists of submicroscopic silver particals that are dispersed in water and taken orally to treat infections.

And to hear the FDA and WHO talk about it, you would think it’s some kind of newfangled crazy witchdoctor scheme.

But nothing could be further from the truth.

It’s been used for hundreds of years. And it may fight Ebola the same way it’s been shown to stop a similar kind of virus in its tracks.

And even those super bugs, the drug resistant kind, don’t seem to stand a chance against colloidal silver. It’s like David throwing a silver stone against a microbe Goliath.

Colloidal silver was used intravenously by doctors until around 1940, and it saved many people from life-threatening infections. Then the Big Pharma era began, and penicillin and other drugs took over.

But there’s no doubt that colloidal silver works at killing microbes. And it’s still very much in use — only not in Africa, where it could quite possibly be saving lives.

Over half of the EPA-registered “biocidal” materials — substances that can kill off harmful microbes — contain these super-tiny silver partials. It’s also used on burn victims topically to fight infection.

So you would think with what we already know about colloidal silver, the FDA and WHO would be rushing it into Africa.

But when you hear what a big shot at the WHO said, it sounds like Big Pharma, as usual, may be pulling the strings.

WHO’s assistant director general, Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny, called colloidal silver a “crazy idea” that has “barely been tested in anything” and that using it in Africa was “absolutely out of the question.”

I think she should try telling that to someone who sits alone and scared in one of those ramshackle “hospitals” in Sierra Leone.

Colloidal silver can be found online, in big drug store chains and stores like GNC. The dose, and the strength, of the product you take depends on the severity of the illness you’re fighting. Doses can range from 1 teaspoon of the 10 ppm strength up to 2 times a day, to 1 tablespoon of a 40 ppm concentration taken at the first sign of infection, then reduced to 1 -2 teaspoons up to four times a day.

Low Fat Milk? NOT

Since my last cancer 24 years ago I was taken off milk because there wasn’t enough fat in it.  That’s right, “not enough fat,” however, I could drink half and half.   Low fat milk is one of the worst things you can drink and this is the first article that I have had sent to me explaining it.

From the desk of Jenny Thompson:    
and another thing 

If you have Type 2 diabetes, everybody has an opinion about what you should and shouldn’t eat. And I mean everybody! 

But some of that advice is just plain wrong and dangerous.

And the low-fat milk myth is exactly that. 

So let’s be clear: Low-fat milk is NOT a “healthy” drink. And that’s especially true for diabetics. 

And finally, some experts are starting to see the light. 

Diabetes expert Linda Delahanty, assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, recently called low-fat milk a “culprit” in raising the blood sugar of diabetics. 

She tells those with type 2 that whole milk is a “better choice” because the fat actually slows digestion, which in turn, helps your body to absorb the sugar in milk more slowly. 

That’s why you’ll find that low-fat milk has a higher glycemic index rating than whole milk. 

And if you’re worried about putting on pounds with whole milk, well, toss that milk myth in the round file too. 

Because research has been showing for years that the exact opposite is true. 

There has also never been any real evidence showing that the saturated fat in whole milk is bad for your heart, either. 

So if you like milk, that’s fine. Just drink it the way Mother Nature intended.

This could be the biggest scandal in American healthcare.

Diabetes Statin

From the desk of Jenny Thompson:

This could be the biggest scandal in American healthcare. And if there ever was any doubt that this “non-profit” organization is nothing more than a shill for Big Pharma, this should shatter that illusion once and for all. Because these new “guidelines” from the American Heart Association put the lives of millions of diabetics at risk.

And they can put your doctor between a rock and a hard place. The AHA now says that everyone who has type 1 or 2 diabetes and is 40 or over should be taking a statin drug! All we need are some pretty pictures and music and we’ve got a commercial for Pfizer to put on TV.

So now what will your doctor do? What can he do? After all, this is the “official” word of the great and powerful AHA. If he doesn’t give you an Rx for a statin drug he could be told that he’s not doing his job. He could even get in trouble.

But this is more than just a sales pitch, it’s absolute insanity. That’s because we KNOW — and research PROVES — that statin drugs can trigger diabetes. So you can just imagine what it will do for those who already have the disease!

And just a short time after the AHA released these insane guidelines, yet another study came out showing how statin use can result in a diabetes diagnosis. It turns out that one in five new cases of diabetes can be caused by these drugs. One in five!

So let’s see if I’m understanding this correctly. Study after study has shown that statin use is linked to developing diabetes. So the AHA issues official guidelines saying that just about everyone with diabetes needs to get on the drug — and right away!

Now doctors will be pressured to write even more and more statin prescriptions. But there’s something else that makes this news so disturbing.
Regular exercise is known to be especially important for people with diabetes. It can help control blood sugar as well as cholesterol levels.
And one of the big side effects from taking statin drugs can be excruciating muscle pain and weakness. And that can stop any kind of exercise plan right in its tracks.

Some people have had such severe reactions that they can’t even a walk around the house. It’s just too painful and tiring. Think how easy controlling your diabetes will be if you can’t even get out of a chair! But the AHA has even bigger plans than just targeting those with diabetes. It looks like the group wants everyone to take statins, even those without diabetes or heart disease!

One of the AHA “experts” from the committee that came up with these deadly guidelines said that doctors have “been undertreating people who need statin therapy in this country.” Undertreating — seriously! If the AHA has its way, anyone over 40 will be in the statin cross hairs. And even kids aren’t immune from its statins-for-everyone plan. The group has recommended that those as young as 10 be started on the drug as well!

While we can’t stop these statin-pushing crazies at the AHA from issuing insane and dangerous guidelines, we can stop giving them our hard-earned dollars to do it with. So if you or anyone you know is donating to the AHA, please choose another, more worthy, real charity to support.
Because the AHA already gets enough “donations” already from Pfizer, Merck and AstraZeneca.
