The CDC has quickly removed a page from their website, which is now cached, ( but now has been removed) admitting that more than 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine within an 8-year span when a proportion of the vaccine was contaminated with a cancer causing polyomavirus called SV40. It has been estimated that 10-30 million Americans could have received an SV40 contaminated dose of the vaccine.
V40 is an abbreviation for Simian vacuolating virus 40 or Simian virus 40, a polyomavirus that is found in both monkeys and humans. Like other polyomaviruses, SV40 is a DNA virus that has been found to cause tumors and cancer.
SV40 is believed to suppress the transcriptional properties of the tumor-suppressing genes in humans through the SV40 Large T-antigen and SV40 Small T-antigen. Mutated genes may contribute to uncontrolled cellular proliferation, leading to cancer. Continue reading
Little Hunter Alford needs chemotherapy to treat the rare and deadly cancer he was born with but has lost his health insurance under an administrative blunder seemingly caused by Obamacare.
While the president’s signature policy promised that no one with a pre-existing condition would not be covered, the Affordable Care Act has seemingly caused the seven-year-old Gainesville, Texas, boy to face an agonizing wait for treatment as his parents battle to get him back on his insurance plan.
‘Why would you cancel a kid?’ asked his mother Krista Alford. ‘I really want to send Obama and all of them pictures of my son. He has scars all over his head. He doesn’t want to leave the house because he’s afraid people are going to make fun of him because he’s bald.’
While mom Krista and dad Ron go out their minds with worry, Hunter – who was born with an extremely rare form of cancer called Plexiform Hishocyne Neoplasm – is battling the disease which has now spread to his brain. Continue reading
UPDATE to two previous columns posted HERE and HERE. The State and the lawyers now know what’s “best” for the patient. “The operation was a success, but the patient died!“
PUBLISHER’s NOTE: The general direction of the lies told in the following – in addition to the final sentence of the column is just as misleading as the title of same. Tell this story to the parents of the many children in the United States and around the world who have lost their children in 2013 alone – who were subjected to this poisonous death. We have posted far too many of these stories on this site in the past six months.
FACT: Chemo NEVER cured a single case of cancer!
Better to have dies of natural causes, than to have been murdered by your caretakers – just to set a legal precedent.
Our heartfelt prayers go out to this child and her family. May the Lord provide the cure that this child deserves. (JB)
Maria Schimer, Hospital Administrator, Lawyer
The family of a 10-year-old Amish girl with leukemia have fled the country with her as they seek to avoid their child being forced to resume chemotherapy treatments.
Attorney Maurice Thompson confirmed today that Anna and Andy Hershberger have disappeared along with their daughter, Sarah from their Homer Township, Ohio home and he doesn’t know if they have returned to the United States.
The family has been fighting a hospital in court for months after the parents decided to halt the treatments because they couldn’t continue to watch their child undergo the arduous radiation treatment.
It has emerged they left their home in rural northeast Ohio just days before a state appeals court appointed a guardian in October to take over medical decisions for the Sarah Hershberger, said Thompson – and have not been seen since. Continue reading
Recently our government went into a shutdown when a portion of the Republican Party fought to block funding for the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. Many people I spoke to said that the government did have the authority to enact Obamacare and that affordable medical insurance is a right that all people have. My point in writing this article is not to argue the legality of Congress having enacted Obamacare, but rather to discuss health and the medical and pharmaceutical industry in general.
The human body is an amazing creation. First of all if you consider that upwards of half our body is comprised of water, it is simply amazing that it can perform all the functions that it does. But then we have different systems within our bodies, all designed to perform specific functions.
We all know, or at least have heard about, DNA, that genetic blueprint which identifies each of us individually. Well our body is comprised of millions, if not billions, of cells and each of them is identified by its own characteristics to perform certain functions within the body. Continue reading
The bereaved mother of Utah teen is convinced her otherwise healthy son’s death was caused by a flu-shot he was given the day before he fell ill – in a case which baffled doctors.
In the obituary for her son, Chandler, 19, Lori Webb said that her son was given his first ever shot on October 15th after agreeing to travel on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
However, the day after receiving the flu and tuberculosis shots, the Brighton High School graduate began suffering sever vomiting and was admitted to hospital in Salt Lake City where he fell into a coma 24-hours later. Continue reading
Italian Auction – only 44 seconds long!
You don’t have to understand Italian to follow the auctioneer:
A Chinese Ming Vase is up for auction. The bidding opens at a half-million Euros.
Bidding is brisk and each bidder is clearly identified as each raises the bid by 100,000 Euros. (The exchange rate at auction time was 1 Euro = $1.43.) Within seconds, the bid stalls at one million Euros, and the gasp from the crowd identifies the excitement that prevails in the room. The successful bidder is the last one who bid one million , and the auctioneer counts down the bid, “Going once, going twice, and sold to the gentleman sitting in front of me for one million Euros.”
Now, you are going to have to see the video for yourself. The auctioneer is exuberant. The pace is fast. This is how an auction should be run. Please note the excitement on the auctioneer’s face after the final bid. Turn your speaker volume on, then view the video on the next page (click on the red arrow to start). I guarantee you have never seen an auction like this one. Continue reading
The nation’s first new guidelines in a decade for preventing heart attacks and strokes call for twice as many Americans — one-third of all adults — to consider taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs.
The guidelines, issued Tuesday by the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology, are a big change. They offer doctors a new formula for estimating a patient’s risk that includes many factors besides a high cholesterol level, the main focus now. The formula includes age, gender, race and factors such as whether someone smokes.
The guidelines for the first time take aim at strokes, not just heart attacks. Partly because of that, they set a lower threshold for using medicines to reduce risk. Continue reading
One of the keys to maintaining optimal health is discovering the correct way to eat food in order to maximize your alkaline potential, and in turn prevent chronic disease from developing in your body. But in order to do this, you have to first learn which foods are alkaline-forming, and which are acid-forming, as well as how to eat them in balance.
The continuous onslaught of chemicals, additives, and genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) throughout the common food supply, not to mention modern society’s heavy reliance on processed, nutrient-stripped foods, is no doubt taking a huge toll on human health. Most people also eat copious amounts of food that promote acidity, which in turn makes them more prone to disease. Continue reading
The number of people in America who died from taking prescription pain killers quadrupled between 1999 and 2010, a new report from the Trust for America’s Health says.
These fatalities now outnumber deaths from heroin and cocaine combined, that same report found. More than 12 million people said they abused prescription drugs in 2010. The only other drug people abuse more is marijuana, the White House noted in a 2011 report. Continue reading
The areas of nutrition and disease prevention are full of incompetence.
We have been wrongly advised to avoid saturated fat and cholesterol, despite no evidence of harm.
Here are the top 9 biggest lies, myths and misconceptions about dietary fat and cholesterol.
1. A Low-Fat, High-Carb Diet is The Optimal Human Diet
Back in 60s and 70s, many prominent scientists believed that saturated fat was the main cause of heart disease, by raising the “bad” cholesterol in the blood.
This idea was the cornerstone of the low-fat diet. Because of a few bad studies and misguided political decisions, this diet was recommended to all Americans in the year 1977.
However, there wasn’t a single study on this diet at the time. The American public became participants in the largest uncontrolled experiment in history. Continue reading
The “wonder drugs” that we have been using since the middle of the last century are rapidly losing their effectiveness, and medical authorities are warning that the emergence of very powerful antibiotic-resistant superbugs represents “one of the gravest threats in the history of medicine“. Of course the “wonder drugs” that I am talking about are known today as antibiotics. These drugs attack bacteria, and when they first began to be developed back in the 1950s and 1960s they were hailed as “miracles” that would save countless numbers of lives. Well, it turns out that nature is having the last laugh.
All over the planet bacteria are developing resistance to these drugs, and scientists are warning that they can’t really do anything to stop these superbugs. With each passing year these superbugs are gaining ground, and there appears to be not much hope on the horizon of being able to fight them. In fact, no new classes of antibiotics have been invented since 1987, and none are being developed right now. Meanwhile, scientists are telling us that many current antibiotic treatments will be completely obsolete by the year 2030. Are you starting to understand why so many high profile members of the scientific community are using the words “catastrophic threat” to describe this crisis? Continue reading
In October of 2012 Heidi went in for her annual routine mammogram. After awhile we got a phone call saying that she would need to come in for another mammogram because they found something suspicious in the images. This had happened before as her breast tissue had been classified as being dense so we were not overly concerned at this point.
After her second mammogram they told us that they wanted to see her in six months as there was definitely something they wanted to monitor. In the past she had undergone two lumpectomies for cysts that were both benign, so still we were not overly concerned at this point.
Prior to her six month follow up, in February of 2013, Heidi noticed a lump in her left breast. We waited until the six month follow up because we believed they would be able to tell us more then. When she went in for her follow up they said they were only going to take an image of her right breast. She told them she felt a lump in her left breast but they told her “…it’s not what you feel, it’s what the mammogram shows.” She argued with them until they relented and took mammograms of both breasts. The results concurred with what Heidi had said; there was a mass in her left breast. Continue reading
A bowl of wild blueberries a day could protect against a range of health problems including obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
Regular consumption of the berries over an eight-week period can improve or prevent metabolic syndrome, researchers say.
Metabolic syndrome is the medical term for a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity.
It increases the risk of heart disease, stroke and other conditions affecting blood vessels.
On their own, diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity can potentially damage the blood vessels, but having all three together is particularly dangerous.
Berries are rich in polyphenols – antioxidants that protect cells in the heart and help lower blood pressure. Continue reading
Infections, bladder problems, even cancer – those aches and twinges in your back could be trying to tell you something
- Sometimes organs send pain signals to other body parts – notably the back
- For instance, kidney and bladder problems are easily mistaken as back pain
- GPs can’t fully explain why this happens, though they have some theories
Frighteningly common: Back pain often masks the symptoms of other potentially serious health conditions
Here, we examine some of the other causes of back pain
Michelle Law’s childhood was blighted by back pain. Her mother took her to the GP many times, only to be told that the constant gnawing ache in Michelle’s back was growing pains or a pulled muscle.
She’d be sent home with painkillers or muscle relaxants – none of which helped.
The pain between her lowest rib and pelvic bone on the right-hand side of her back dogged Michelle into adulthood.
When she was 35, a new GP referred her for investigations on her kidneys because of the site of the pain.
‘I had dozens of scans and tests over four years, but they couldn’t find anything wrong,’ says Michelle, who lives in Hastings, East Sussex, with her four children and is studying to be a veterinary nurse. ‘By that time I was relying on morphine for pain relief and had become house-bound.’ Continue reading
Cancer, the most feared disease in America, just got scarier thanks to Obamacare. Despite the barrage of propganada claiming our health care system is in “crisis,” the fact is that if you are diagnosed with cancer, the best country in the world to receive treatment is the United States, by a fairly substantial margin. Our technology and our physicians are the best in the world. Period, as the president so often says.
But from now on, if you are covered by Obamacare, your options for cancer treatment are diminishing. Continue reading
Doctors sounded a warning Tuesday over a rise in ADHD diagnoses, saying some children may be needlessly taking powerful drugs intended to correct a poorly understood disorder.
Writing in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), the researchers noted treatment for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) had risen massively in recent years, even though its causes are unclear and drugs can have adverse effects.
ADHD is a disorder blamed for severe and frequent bouts of inattention, hyperactivity or impulsivity. Children and young adolescents are those who are most diagnosed with it.
But some experts fear the term ADHD may “medicalise” problems related to a child’s personality or maturity level, the effects of poor parenting or other home problems. Continue reading
I’ve written several articles on this subject. As vaccine supporters, enthusiasts, liars, and poisoners keep showing up, I’m sure I’ll write several more.
Here’s the drill. If a parent believes her child has developed autism as the result of a vaccine(s), she must enter the maze of the US government compensation system. Why? Because she can no longer go to court and sue the vaccine manufacturer directly. That’s out.
The manufacturers and the federal government have conspired to erect a wall against those lawsuits, to protect the manufacturers from high-priced judgments.
The government maze the parent enters and suffers through is called the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). It’s a nightmare. Continue reading
Worked undercover at Johnson & Johnson
For nine years, Judith Doetterl kept a secret.
She never said boo about the drug she was selling or the allegations that her employer, a pharmaceutical giant, was wining and dining doctors to boost sales.
She never told anyone she was working undercover with federal investigators or that she was one of five employees at the center of one of the biggest pharmaceutical whistle-blower cases ever.
Monday, the Buffalo woman went public with her tale of intrigue, risk and great reward.
“They wanted to right a wrong,” Daniel C. Oliverio, Doetterl’s lawyer, said of the five former employees in the case. “To this day, their primary goal was, ‘This must end.’ ”
Overnight, Doetterl and the others – including Camille McGowan, Oliverio’s other client in the case – went from little-known former sales representatives for Johnson & Johnson to whistle-blowers now credited with exposing one of the biggest pharmaceutical scams in years. Continue reading
Health plans are sending hundreds of thousands of cancellation letters to people who buy their own coverage, frustrating some consumers who want to keep what they have and forcing others to buy more costly policies.
The main reason insurers offer is that the policies fall short of what the Affordable Care Act requires starting Jan. 1. Most are ending policies sold after the law passed in March 2010. At least a few are cancelling plans sold to people with pre-existing medical conditions. Continue reading
A new animal study has documented a precise mechanism by which disturbances to the ear’s hearing and balance systems cause hyperactive behavior. Since such damage can occur in humans from infections, especially recurring ear infections, the study sheds light on the importance of helping children not get too many ear infections as well as fully recovering from them.
The correlation between ear infections and subsequent behavioral issues such as ADHD has been noted in the literature for some time. A 1990 study of 138 children found that ear infections and consequent middle ear disease was associated with hyperactivity and inattention. Continue reading
