In one year, nearly 1.3 million Americans needed hospital care for opioid-related issues

The coast-to-coast opioid epidemic is swamping hospitals, with government data published Tuesday showing 1.27 million emergency room visits or inpatient stays for opioid-related issues in a single year.

The 2014 numbers, the latest available for every state and the District of Columbia, reflect a 64 percent increase for inpatient care and a 99 percent jump for emergency room treatment compared to figures from 2005. Their trajectory likely will keep climbing if the epidemic continues unabated. Continue reading

No evidence that $40,000 ‘miracle’ drug cures hepatitis C

The $40,000 medicine may rid the blood of the virus but experts weren’t convinced it could prevent deaths

A medicine hailed as a ‘miracle’ drug that could eliminate hepatitis C may not actually cure the disease, a study claims.

Sick patients were offered hope with a new $40,000 direct-acting antiviral drug, which boasted it could clear the virus from the blood within 12 weeks.

The staggering price of the medicine was worth it to some because the contagious liver disease can lead to cancer and death. Continue reading

Holistic Doctor, Working Against Big Pharma, Shot Dead In Boulder

Holistic doctor, researcher and writer Christopher Bayley King, was shot dead outside an organic restaurant in Boulder, Colorado on Memorial Day, as the community of physicians seeking to operate outside the confines of Big Pharma continues to be decimated.

Patient safety is our highest concern

Part IV:Please don’t forget about me”: Antidepressants and birth defects

Last February, Dr. Bérard and her colleagues published an updated analysis of the Quebec Pregnancy Cohort data. Between 1998 and 2009, the rate of antidepressant use during pregnancy for the study population doubled, from 2.1% to 4.3%. During that same period, the rate of major congenital malformations increased by more than 50%, and the rate of maternal depression went up slightly as well.

In addition, the study once again confirmed the link between paroxetine and heart defects, finding that the drug was associated with a nearly 50% rise in the rate of major cardiac malformations. The study also showed that venlafaxine, the active ingredient in Effexor (the drug that Christiane took during her pregnancies) more than doubled the incidence of major respiratory defects (which two of Christiane and Amery’s children suffered from).

Part I: “Please don’t forget about me”: Antidepressants and birth defects

Life was amazing.That is how Amery Schultz recalls life with his wife Christiane – before she began taking Wyeth’s blockbuster drug Effexor while pregnant. Since then, their lives have changed in ways they never could have imagined.

Amery and Christiane were born in the same hospital, just a month apart. They weren’t childhood sweethearts, but they grew up together in the same small town in British Columbia. Christiane remembers her adolescence as a rocky time. “At school I was being bullied really bad, and my parents weren’t helping.” At 14 she left home and moved in with her older sister. “She wanted me to have fun, so she pushed me to go partying. I was drugged and assaulted a couple of times, and she wouldn’t help me.” Christiane turned to her old friend Amery for consolation, and when she got married for the first time at the age of 21, Amery was the best man at the wedding – at Christiane’s behest.

A gigantic uncontrolled experiment

Part II: Please don’t forget about me“: Antidepressants and birth defects

Since the beginning of the modern psychopharmaceutical era, the proportion of the population diagnosed with depression has skyrocketed. A condition that once affected fewer than one person out of a thousand now afflicts more than one out of twenty. Today major depression is the leading cause of disability for adults between the ages of 15 and 43.

During that same period, consumption of antidepressants also has skyrocketed. Continue reading

“I was absolutely distraught”

Part III: Please don’t forget about me“: Antidepressants and birth defects

Show me de monee!

Lyam David-Kilker was born on 24 October 2005, the second son of Michelle David and Miles Kilker of Bensalem, Pennsylvania. At birth he seemed like a normal, happy, healthy infant, but all that soon changed. His breathing was labored, and he became lethargic and lost his appetite. His parents took him to the doctors, who delivered devastating news. Lyam was born with multiple cardiac defects: a hole in his atrial septum, a hole in his ventricular septum, along with transposition of the great arteries—the same condition which afflicted Christiane and Amery’s son Daniel. Lyam required two open-heart surgeries and spent the first six months of his life in the hospital. Continue reading

Ohio Sues 5 Major Drug Companies For ‘Fueling Opioid Epidemic

The state of Ohio has sued five major drug manufacturers for their role in the opioid epidemic. In the lawsuit filed Wednesday, state Attorney General Mike DeWine alleges these five companies “helped unleash a health care crisis that has had far-reaching financial, social, and deadly consequences in the State of Ohio.”

Named in the suit are:

* Purdue Pharma

* Endo Health Solutions

* Teva Pharmaceutical Industries and subsidiary Cephalon

* Johnson & Johnson and subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals

* Allergan

The lawsuit — only the second such suit filed by a state, after Mississippi did so earlier this year — accuses the companies of engaging in a sustained marketing campaign to downplay the addiction risks of the prescription opioid drugs they sell and to exaggerate the benefits of their use for health problems such as chronic pain.

Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated: Guess who is Sicker?

It’s never been done before. The first-of-its-kind study of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated American homeschooled children shows who is really ailing…and parents should be worried

Something is wrong with America’s children. They are sick – allergic, asthmatic, anxious, autoimmune, autistic, hyperactive, distracted and learning disabled. Thirty-two million American children – a full 43% of them – suffer from at least one of 20 chronic illnesses not including obesity. Across the board, once rare pediatric disorders from autism and ADD to Type 1 diabetes and Tourette’s syndrome are soaring, though few studies pool the data. Continue reading

Lead Developer Of HPV Vaccines Comes Clean

Warns Parents & Young Girls It’s All A Giant Deadly Scam

The HPV vaccine controversy has got many people confused. Here’s what you need to know. The human papillomavirus (HPV) is a very common virus that is transmitted via sexual contact. Symptoms aren’t always apparent and someone can be a carrier without knowing it. The virus, like influenza, will usually go away on its own. If the immune system is not working optimally, however, the virus can linger, causing genital warts. There is also evidence that extended exposure to the virus can cause cancer of the cervix, vagina, anus, rectum, mouth, throat, penis, and vulva. Continue reading

The Green House That Almost Killed Me

If you’ve been following my health story here you know that I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2006. After that initial MS attack I was fairly symptom free until 2014. That’s when things began to get weird.

Non-Toxic Green Building Materials, Check!
We had renovated a 100 year old house in historic Mapleton Hill and moved in during the summer of 2014. I believed we had done a totally green renovation. That’s because I knew nothing about wireless technology. Every single thing in the house from lighting to thermostats to the sound system and more was wireless and ran on electromagnetic radiation. It was the equivalent of living with 300 cell phones in my home buzzing constantly. Continue reading

Doctors Confessing to Intentionally Diagnosing Healthy People With Cancer to Make Money

It happens more often than you can imagine, but more Doctors are finally getting caught in the act of misrepresenting their oath and fraudulently diagnosing healthy patients with cancer to turn a quick buck from kickbacks on chemotherapy poisons.

Why shouldn’t Doctors lie when the entire cancer industry is one gigantic fabrication from start to finish?

Is it any wonder that cancer societies worldwide put a far greater financial initiative on chemotherapy and radiation research than disease prevention techniques? Preventing disease doesn’t make money, but treating disease certainly does. Continue reading

When Patient Rights Do Not Exist

American health care is in a truly deplorable state. Along with virtually everything else in our collapsing society, the American people are increasingly held captive to the barbaric whims and dictates of a ruling establishment, which holds nothing sacred, and which has acquired unprecedented amounts of wealth and power. Consequently, it was inevitable that in our health care system, the patient would become a mere commodity, to be used solely for purposes of research and profit maximization. Continue reading

When Patient Rights Do Not Exist

American health care is in a truly deplorable state. Along with virtually everything else in our collapsing society, the American people are increasingly held captive to the barbaric whims and dictates of a ruling establishment, which holds nothing sacred, and which has acquired unprecedented amounts of wealth and power. Consequently, it was inevitable that in our health care system, the patient would become a mere commodity, to be used solely for purposes of research and profit maximization.

In any discussion regarding the current state of health care in America, it is illustrative to use as benchmarks, two of the most prestigious medical institutions in New York City: Memorial Sloan Kettering and Weill Cornell Medical Center… Continue reading

The Truth About Vaccines

If you’re in your 50s or younger, then you have grown up in the “era of mass vaccines.” Since the 1950s, the number of recommended and required vaccine shots has gone up by close to 414 percent. Now there is dozens of shots per year on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) vaccine schedule — not just for children but for adults as well.

But how did the current CDC vaccine schedule come into existence in the first place? Here is a basic rundown of how U.S. vaccine policy has developed during the past 60 years. Continue reading

Merck’s Former Doctor Predicts Gardasil to Become the Greatest Medical Scandal of All Time

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine” – (Source) Marica Angell. She is a physician and author, along with being the first woman to serve as editor-in-chief of The New England Journal of Medicine – regarded as one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world.

The Man Who “Discovered” ADHD Made a Startling Deathbed Confession

“ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease.” These were the words of Leon Eisenberg, the “scientific father of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder),” in his last interview he gave before his death at age 87 in 2009.

(While some have described Dr. Eisenberg’s statement as an “exaggeration,” many doctors are coming to the belated conclusion that ADHD is often “over diagnosed” by the use of “fuzzy diagnostic practices.” Harvard psychologist Jerome Kagan, who is one of the world’s leading experts in child development, states: Continue reading

Government Mandatory Health Care Is Still Tyranny

The failure of the GOP to repeal Obamacare proves once again that the establishment power structure maintains their grip on political policy. The incompetence of Paul Ryan is more closely described as a propensity to be a faithful stooge for the corporatist agenda. It is because of this assessment, which reflects the current state of conduct where nothing ever changes or actually improves society that keeps the malevolent system in place. Regretfully, Big Government is now the GOP Platform. Continue reading

Two thirds of cancers are unavoidable even if you live a healthy life, study finds

Artist’s illustration of a DNA double helix CREDIT: NATIONAL HUMAN GENOME RESEARCH INSTITUTE

Two thirds of cancers are unavoidable even if you live a healthy life, a study has shown.

Scientists in the US found cancers are caused by random mistakes in the genetic code that occur when cells divide. The findings challenge the widespread view that cancer mutations are generally inherited or triggered by environmental factors. Continue reading

Death on the Prescription Plan

The ‘White Plague’ of the 21st Century

Introduction
Over the past two decades hundreds of thousands of Americans have died prematurely because of irresponsibly prescribed narcotic ‘pain killers’ and other central nervous system depressants, like tranquillizers and their deadly interactions. The undeniable fact is that they have been mostly from the white working and lower middle class from rural and deindustrialized regions. The governing elite and oligarch macro-decision makers have quietly dismissed this sector of the country as ‘surplus’. The victims or their surviving family members have no chance of redress for the widespread malpractice and greed that led to their addiction or death. The government as a whole and the oligarch-controlled mass media have deliberately failed to document and investigate the deep causes for the epidemic, except to spout the usual superficial ‘clichéd explanations’.

We will proceed to discuss the scope and depth of the epidemic and to identify the primary causes. We will then proceed to offer alternatives. Continue reading

Prescription opioid deaths surpass gun-related deaths…

Big Pharma literally killing more people than GUNS

The opioid epidemic in America is killing more people than guns and the blame rests squarely on Big Pharma. Until 2007, the number of deaths by firearm was five times greater than those caused by overdoses, but in 2015 overdose deaths surpassed gun deaths for the first time – and it looks like the trend will continue. Continue reading

Govt. Still Pushing HPV Vaccine on Kids a Decade after JW Exposed Deadly Side Effects

This dangerous and Japan and Germany have banned it. More New World Order bullshit to diminish our population: global warming; vaccines; lab creates illnesses i.e. EBola; AIDS and now this. Stay awake and aware!

A decade after Judicial Watch exposed the dangers of a government-backed cervical cancer vaccine, a federal lawsuit highlights its perilous side effects including paralysis, seizures, nausea and death. Litigation was initiated by disgruntled parents because the government is still pushing the hazardous vaccine, manufactured by pharmaceutical giant Merck, on children as young as nine years old to treat a sexually transmitted disease.

CDC Admits 98 Million Americans Were Given Cancer Virus Via The Polio Shot

The CDC has admitted that between 1955–1963 over 98 million Americans received one or more doses of a polio shot which was contaminated with a cancer-causing virus called Simian vacuolating virus 40 (SV40). The CDC quickly took down the page, along with Google, but the site was luckily cached and saved to symbolize this grand admission.

To further confirm this unbelievable admission, Assistant Professor of Pathology at Loyola University in Chicago Dr. Michele Carbone has been able to independently verify the presence of the SV40 virus in tissue and bone samples from patients who died during that era. He found that 33% of the samples with osteosarcoma bone cancers, 40% of other bone cancers, and 60% of the mesothelioma’s lung cancers all contained this obscure virus. This leaves the postulation that upwards of 10–30 million actually contracted and were adversely affected by this virus, to be deadly accurate.

Disease GOUGERS: New Big Pharma SCANDAL

FDA approves drug for terminal muscular dystrophy – but manufacturer hikes the price from $1,000 to $89,000 a year

A pharmaceutical company has been forced to ‘pause’ the launch of a crucial muscular dystrophy drug amid outrage over its $88,000 price-hike.

Emflaza, a steroid, is one of the only drugs believed to slow the effects of Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy (DMD), a terminal disease that disproportionately affects boys. Continue reading

Active TB Diagnosed at High School in Washington State Where 15 Percent of Students are ‘English Language Learners’

~ Forewords ~
I wonder how many others have thought about the increase in DISEASES here in America – DISEASES that were pretty much eliminated over the years. Then all of the sudden the RETURN of those childhood and other diseases have made a big comeback.. In spite of all the massive promotions to force our children to be injected with chemical poisons called *VACCINATIONS*. Here in Western Washington we have had large numbers on children come down with MUMPS – a good many of those who developed MUMPS had been vaccinated with that MMR vaccines but they still got those DISEASES they were supposed to be vaccinated against getting. So much for those Poison Injections protecting those who got them. Continue reading
