“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 →
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 →
One of the world’s leading drug companies considered destroying its stockpiles of life-saving cancer medicines and allegedly created artificial shortages in its attempts to profit from price hikes, the Times reports. Continue reading →
The FDA has acknowledged a clear link between breast implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) after nine women with implants died of the same cancer
Breast implants can cause a rare and hard-to-treat form of cancer, the FDA has confirmed in a landmark update to its guidelines.
It comes after the federal agency received reports from 359 women claiming a link between their implants and their diagnosis of anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), a rare form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

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 →
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 →
Monsanto ghostwrote studies on the herbicide Roundup for the Environmental Protection Agency, documents unsealed in a federal court case seem to show.
Farmers and others are suing chemical company Monsanto, alleging that the company failed to warn them that its glyphosate-based weed killer can cause non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
In company emails made public Tuesday in federal court in San Francisco, Monsanto executives discuss ghostwriting research papers on Roundup, the company’s best-selling product, that would be signed by scientists. Two papers on Roundup were eventually published, one in 2000 and one in 2013. Continue reading →
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 →
It’s no secret that the United States government often imposes seemingly insurmountable regulations and rules, while also failing to appropriately regulate key areas of industries that serve the public. The FDA is a great example of these two extremes. On the one hand, the FDA is known for doling out life-destroying penalties for relatively innocuous crimes. On the other hand, the same federal agency has created an enormous loophole that allows food manufacturers to use ingredients without government review or approval, provided that the food industry has deemed it “safe.” And we all know how good industries are at self-regulation.

Conventional methods of treating cancer generate approximately $200 billion dollars each year, and that’s just in the U.S.! Most of this money goes to Big Pharma and a large majority is generated through the sale and use of chemotherapy drugs.
The debate about whether vaccines cause severe damage and harm to children is over. Anyone claiming vaccines cause no harm is willfully ignorant of reality, as U.S. courts have concluded, over and over again, that vaccines provably cause serious and permanent damage to children. Continue reading →
California can require Monsanto to label Roundup, its popular weed-killer, as a possible cancer threat, a judge tentatively ruled Friday.
If it carries out the proposal, California would be the first state to order such labeling for the weed-killer, which is used by farmers and home gardeners worldwide.
Monsanto had sued the nation’s leading agricultural state, saying California officials illegally based their decision for carrying the warnings on an international health organization based in France. Continue reading →
While today’s pharmaceuticals are often touted as game-changers and the product of a medically advanced society, there most definitely is a dark side to having our country flooded with prescription medications. And American youth are being particularly abused by Big Pharma and the traditional medical community.
The more studies are conducted on mood-and-mind-altering medications for conditions like ADHD—perhaps one of the most over-diagnosed ‘illnesses’ among early school-aged children—the more we find they are doing lasting damage. Continue reading →
A new Orwellian bill is being proposed in California that will make it illegal for parents to make medical decisions for their own children.
The new SB-18 bill will allow the State to seize children away from their parents and their homes if parents make medical decisions that the State deems not to be in the child’s best interests. Continue reading →
Dow Chemical Wants Farmers to Keep Using a Pesticide Linked to Autism and ADHD
On Mondays, Magda and Amilcar Galindo take their daughter Eva to self-defense class. Eva is 12 but her trusting smile and arching pigtails make her look younger. Diagnosed with autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, Eva doesn’t learn or behave like the typical 12-year-old. She struggles to make change, and she needs help with reading and social situations. Eva’s classmates are sometimes unkind to her, and Magda worries for her daughter’s feelings and her safety. So once a week, after they drive her from her middle school in Modesto, California, to her tutor in nearby Riverbank, the Galindos rush off to the gym where they cheer Eva on as she wrestles with a heavy bag and punches the air with her skinny arms. Continue reading →
What’s the “Agent Orange curse?” True story: As veterans of the Vietnam war die off from cancer and other diseases and disorders they got from the incredibly toxic defoliant Agent Orange, the nightmare is not over, because research is revealing their children and grandchildren, who were never exposed to the pesticide, have birth defects that were passed on through their parents and grandparent’s affected genes. That’s the Agent Orange curse, and it can cause much more detriment than cancer, as if that weren’t enough, including heart disease, fibromyalgia, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, spinal problems, autism, and birth defects like missing limbs, extra limbs, malformed limbs, speech difficulties, cleft lip palate, crooked fingers and webbed toes.
Sadly, the US government is trying to cover it all up, waiting for the vets to die off, thinking the whole chronic nightmare will fade away, but it’s not fading at all. Continue reading →
President Obama declared during his (2016) State of the Union Address that he’s putting Vice President Biden in charge of carrying out a multi-billion dollar “moonshot”, to cure cancer that Biden called for in wake of his son’s death. Unfortunately for Biden, and the public in general, Big Pharma has too much to lose by curing cancer, and too much to gain by keeping it in check. Continue reading →
What happens when cutting-edge medicine offers up conflicting answers?

A couple years ago, Sibel Blau, an oncologist outside of Seattle, was working with the company Guardant Health to test their novel “liquid biopsies” in patients. The idea behind liquid biopsies is both elegant and promising. A doctor takes a blood sample from a patient, and then Guardant looks for tumor DNA floating in the blood, allowing doctors to identify the tumor’s unique mutations and offer a personalized drug regimen—all without an invasive tissue biopsy. Blau was excited to be on board. Continue reading →
~ Publisher’s NOTE ~
The following is not meant to be a political statement, as we attempt to keep ‘politics‘ off of this website. We know that people of all political leanings, as well as people of all colors, races, creeds and religion are affected by the devastation of disease, yet having stated this, we also are aware of the lenient applications of the invasion of America by both those who steal across our borders in the dark of night, and those who are allowed to enter as “refugees” without the type of physical and politcal vetting of days gone by. With these circumstances – diseases, which have been mostly dormant in this nation for years, are coming back – and it will be a haunting. ~ J.B.
A student enrolled at Benson Magnet High School, one of seven high schools in the Omaha, Nebraska Public Schools system, was diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB) in November.
Two hundred thirty seven of Benson Magnet High School’s 1,273 students, or 18.6 percent, are refugees, according to Omaha Public School’s District English Language Learner/Refugee Report, 2015-16. Continue reading →
Cancer Industry Hides Awful Truth That Chemo Often Kills Patients Before Cancer Does
The shocking study was published in LANCET ONCOLOGY in September of this year and was reported by a limited number of news sources. Guardian [Aug. 30, 2016]. Most were obscure online portals. [ChristianTruther.com [Aug. 7, 2016[; The Free Thought Project [Sept. 3, 2016]; Opposing Views [Sept. 6, 2016]; What Doctors Don’t Tell You [Sept. 6, 2016] But alternate news sources were apparently drowned out by the recent Presidential election in the USA. Absent were CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, Reuters, The Associated Press the major news media.
In some hospital-based cancer treatment centers the death rate from chemotherapy (not cancer) is as high as 50%. The study involved thousands of patients with lung cancer in England. Continue reading →
Time magazine starts and essay written by Vice President Joe Biden on cancer saying, “Every day, thousands of Americans hear the dreaded “c word” from their doctor. I know the fear and the numbness that sets in with the cancer of a loved one. What happens next can make the difference between life and death. If there’s a treatment that can help, there’s hope. But for some people, hope is a clinical trial that will ultimately determine whether a new therapy can slow or stop their cancer.” Continue reading →
Are you eating America’s left-over chemical warfare to be used as agricultural poison on our food supply?
“Between 1962 and 1971, US military forces sprayed millions of gallons of herbicides over South Vietnam. Agent Orange accounted for much of the total sprayed.”~ NAS Press Release, July 28, 1993.
The legacy of Agent Orange and Monsanto’s attempt to defoliate the hiding places of the Viet Cong is still apparent in modern Vietnam, but how those chemicals are being used now, in the aftermath of war, should be even more chilling to the observant individual. Continue reading →
The 57-year-old, from Alabama, was hospitalized feeling shaky, with tingling and numbness in his right arm and leg.
A CT scan revealed he had suffered a small but life-threatening brain hemorrhage.
Surgeons at the University of Alabama at Birmingham stroke center managed to treat the unidentified man’s symptoms, however, he continued to report tingling, numbness, and shakiness months after his attack, according to the report published in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine.

A major study about the best way to treat early-stage breast cancer reveals that “precision medicine” doesn’t provide unambiguous answers about how to choose the best therapy.
“Precision doesn’t mean certainty,” says David Hunter, a professor of cancer prevention at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
That point is illustrated in a large study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, involving decisions about chemotherapy.
As is true for many cancers, breast cancer responds best to treatment when it is caught early, before it has spread throughout the body. Dr. Fatima Cardoso, the study’s lead author and a breast cancer specialist at the Champalimaud Clinical Center in Lisbon, Portugal, says that creates a conundrum for doctors and patients alike.

Largely due to Monsanto’s efforts to hide the truth from the public regarding the dangers of glyphosate, many people have no idea of the real extent of the threat posed by what has become the most widely used herbicide in the world – nor do most realize how widespread its use has become within the United States.
Glyphosate – the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide – is a particularly toxic substance that causes a range of health problems in humans, including cancer, autism, birth defects and at least a dozen other serious illnesses. Continue reading →
