People need to know a lot in order to survive. But of all the things a person needs to know -

is perhaps the most important.

The right answer is not -the supermarket.

Below is a listing of different sources of REAL food to feed your REAL body and mind. Check through the list and make contact with the food source best for you.

Don't be lazy when it comes to food. Put out some effort and spend the time - and money (real food costs more than factory food).

Promoting Sustainable Agriculture
Consumers are paying a high cost for substandard, cheap factory food. The following links are working on different areas but all have the same goal - to support sustainable agriculture. There are far too many groups to mention here (apologies to those we missed). Be sure to find local sustainable agricultural groups in your area as many of them hold extremely informative annual meetings where you can meet local farmers. Depending upon your area of interest, familiarize yourself with any or all of the following links.
If you are concerned about the quality of the food you are buying at the grocery store, some of the following links will help guide to healthier more humane choices through local farms.
If you are interested in stopping factory farming, some of the following links will help show you how to get involved.
If you are a farmer who is interested in producing food for consumers, there are links below that will help show you how.
Some of the following links will also be able to provide scientific literature supporting the benefits of sustainable agriculture.
It is important to understand the impact you have when you spend your money on factory food. Changing your shopping patterns by supporting local agriculture will not only help improve your health, it will also help improve the environment and bring back our rural communities.

Growing Power Aquaponics System -video

One thing about it - no matter what - people have to eat. I am sure you agree. Since we have to eat all year round we need a system of food production - that we control - that produces for us all year round regardless of weather or climatic conditions. Will Allen the founder of Growing Power explains his aquaponics system at the recent seminar that Bro John and I attended in Milwaukee. These are things that we can do. These are things we must do. I am sure you agree.
Do you know of something more important than this?
If you do let me know what it is.
Shouldn't you have a hoop house with aquaponics
beside your house, or in your neighborhood?

Advance Planning for US Military Haitian Disaster

Why was the US Military practicing for a Haiti Disaster Relief scenario on January 11, 2010, one day before the earthquake hit? Is that just a bizarre coincidence, or did they already know something in advance? There have been more than one report indicating that the Haiti earthquake could have been an act of man and not an act of God. What exactly is the earthquake weapon referred to by US Defense Secretary William Cohen a few years back? Who has it and did they use it in Haiti? Is that how the military knew something in advance? Did it come down the chain of command? If so, who gave the order to detonate the earthquake? Would that have been the Commander in Chief?
Read the article below by Michael Chossudovsky and decide for yourself. Related to that is the complete militarization of aid releif to Haiti. Is that the proper role for our military given the fact that the 20th Century is full of invasions of Haiti by the US military and even a 19 year occupation? How long will the US military remain in Haiti this time?

A Haiti Disaster Relief Scenario Was Envisaged by the US Military One Day Before the Earthquake
by Michel Chossudovsky
A Haiti disaster relief scenario had been envisaged at the headquarters of US Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) in Miami one day prior to the earthquake.
The holding of pre-disaster simulations pertained to the impacts of a hurricane in Haiti. They were held on January 11. (Bob Brewin,
Defense launches online system to coordinate Haiti relief efforts (1/15/10) -- GovExec.com, complete text of article is contained in Annex)
The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), which is under the jurisdiction of the Department of Defense (DoD), was involved in organizing these scenarios on behalf of US Southern Command.(SOUTHCOM).
Defined as a "Combat Support Agency", DISA has a mandate to provide IT and telecommunications, systems, logistics services in support of the US military. (See DISA website:
Defense Information Systems Agency).
On the day prior to the earthquake, "on Monday [January 11, 2010], Jean Demay, DISA's technical manager for the agency's Transnational Information Sharing Cooperation project, happened to be at the headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command in Miami preparing for a test of the system in a scenario that involved providing relief to Haiti in the wake of a hurricane." (Bob Brewin, op cit, emphasis added)
The Transnational Information Sharing Cooperation project (TISC) is a communications-information tool which "links non-government organizations with the United States [government and military] and other nations for tracking, coordinating and organizing relief efforts".(Government IT Scrambles To Help Haiti, TECHWEB January 15, 2010).
The TISC is an essential component of the militarization of emergency relief. The US military through DISA oversees the information - communications system used by participating aid agencies. Essentially, it is a communications sharing system controlled by the US military, which is made available to approved non-governmental partner organizations. The Defense Information Systems Agency also "provides bandwidth to aid organizations involved in Haiti relief efforts."
There are no details on the nature of the tests conducted on January 11 at SOUTHCOM headquarters.
DISA's Jean Demay was in charge of coordinating the tests. There are no reports on the participants involved in the disaster relief scenarios.
One would expect, given DISA's mandate, that the tests pertained to simulating communications. logistics and information systems in the case of a major emergency relief program in Haiti.
The fundamental concept underlying DISA's Transnational Information Sharing Cooperation project (TISC) is to "Achieve Interoperability With Warfighters, Coalition Partners And NGOs" (Defense Daily, December 19, 2008)
Upon completing the tests and disaster scenarios on January 11, TISC was considered to be, in relation to Haiti, in "an advanced stage of readiness". On January 13, the day following the earthquake, SOUTHCOM took the decision to implement the TISC system, which had been rehearsed in Miami two days earlier:
"After the earthquake hit on Tuesday [January 12, 2010], Demay said SOUTHCOM decided to go live with the system. On [the following day] Wednesday [January 13, 2010], DISA opened up its
All Partners Access Network, supported by the Transnational Information Sharing Cooperation project, to any organization supporting Haiti relief efforts.
The information sharing project, developed with backing from both SOUTHCOM and the Defense Department's European Command, has been in development for three years. It is designed to facilitate multilateral collaboration between federal and nongovernmental agencies.

Demay said that since DISA set up a Haiti Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief Community of Interest on APAN on Wednesday [the day following the earthquake], almost 500 organizations and individuals have joined, including a range of Defense units and various nongovernmental organizations and relief groups. (Bob Brewin, Defense launches online system to coordinate Haiti relief efforts (1/15/10) -- GovExec.com emphasis added)
DISA has a Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) Field Office in Miami. Under the Haiti Disaster Emergency Program initiated on January 12, DISA's mandate is described as part of a carefully planned military operation:
"DISA is providing US Southern Command with information capabilities which will support our nation in quickly responding to the critical situation in Haiti," said Larry K. Huffman, DISA's Principal Director of Global Information Grid Operations. "Our experience in providing support to contingency operations around the world postures us to be responsive in meeting USSOUTHCOM's requirements." DISA, a Combat Support Agency, engineers and [sic] provides command and control capabilities and enterprise infrastructure to continuously operate and assure a global net-centric enterprise in direct support to joint warfighters, National level leaders, and other mission and coalition partners across the full spectrum of operations. As DoD's satellite communications leader, DISA is using the Defense Satellite Communications System to provide frequency and bandwidth support to all organizations in the Haitian relief effort. This includes Super High Frequency missions that are providing bandwidth for US Navy ships and one Marine Expeditionary Unit that will arrive shortly on station to provide medical help, security, and helicopters among other support. This also includes all satellite communications for the US Air Force handling round-the-clock air traffic control and air freight operations at the extremely busy Port-Au-Prince Airport. DISA is also providing military Ultra High Frequency channels and contracting for additional commercial SATCOM missions that greatly increase this capability for relief efforts. (
DISA -Press Release, January 2010, undated, emphasis added)
In the immediate wake of the earthquake, DISA played a key supportive role to SOUTHCOM, which was designated by the Obama administration as the de facto "lead agency" in the US Haitian relief program. The underlying system consists in integrating civilian aid agencies into the orbit of an advanced communications information system controlled by the US military.
"DISA is also leveraging a new technology in Haiti that is already linking NGOs, other nations and US forces together to track, coordinate and better organize relief efforts" (Ibid)

Raw Milk - Purest Source of Water

So study after study is showing the same thing - America's water supply is contaminated. Bottled water is a scam and before long water may be completely privatized and available only to those with the money to buy it at prices that are astronomical. My wife's favorite water sells for no less than $1.39 per liter, and has been known to go as high as $1.89 per liter. That's around $5.60 a gallon! Water is almost twice the price of gasoline with no guarantee that it is safe and pure! What about filters? Some of the ultra filters may be good, but they are also expensive and may be prone to failure over time. Even if you have your own well or spring that does not mean that chemicals and pathogens have not leached into your well from surrounding areas. The government is useless and can be counted on to do just what they are doing - nothing. If Obama really wanted to get people back to work, he could announce a campaign to re-build the water infra-structure throughout the country rather than bailing out the banks. How can the country survive without adequate safe water?

Here's one solution that is very helpful. As a person increases the percentage of the diet that comes from raw milk, the need for water goes down. Raw milk is 89% water! So someone who drinks a quart or more of raw milk is getting most of the water needed for a day. Milk drinkers need less water to begin with because most of the water used everyday by the body is to help dilute food in the intestinal tract and to produce the digestive juices so that what we eat can be broken down and assimilated. Milk is already dilute and basically digests itself. You don't need extra water to do that.

Not only that, but the water that is contained in milk is very pure. The water in milk is the water that was in the grass eaten by the cow. Rainwater falls from the clouds in a very pure distilled form to water the grass. This already pure water is further filtered and purified through the soil and the root system of the growing green grass. After the cow eats the grass the water in the grass undergoes further purification and highly significant energetic enhancement and restructuring as it is processed through the body of the cow and emerges as an ultra-filtrate in the udder as pure milk!
How could Allah in the Holy Qur'an refer to milk as a pure drink unless every component of it is purified, the largest component being its water?
So drink up. Once again milk proves over and over again
that it really is one of God's greatest miracles.

What's inside dirty U.S. drinking water?
By WC Douglas MD
A New York Times investigation found that more than 62 million Americans have been exposed to substandard drinking water since 2004. There are hundreds -- maybe even thousands -- of dangerous contaminants in our water, yet only 91 of them are regulated by the government. During the past decade, there hasn't been a single addition to the list of chemicals regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act -- and much of this law has been unchanged since the 1980s. Regulators aren't just asleep at the wheel -- they've driven us off the road, over a cliff and into a filthy reservoir. In one city, the local water department had to abandon 40 percent of all municipal wells in one area because of contamination. This didn't happen in some backwater town, or next door to a single big factory. Nope... according to the Times, this happened in Los Angeles -- our second -- largest city. If these same contaminants were turning up in food, there would be outrage... and probably a Congressional investigation. But since the problems were CAUSED by our own listless government and its big industry pals, you rarely hear a peep about it. Any attempt to cut down on the chemicals in our water is met with aggressive lobbying from powerful industries. The best thing you can do is to buy yourself a reverse-osmosis water filter and install it not at the sink, but where the water enters your home -- because believe me, you don't even want to shower in this stuff. I didn't need the stunning new report in the New York Times to tell me how bad the problem is -- I've been warning my readers about this for years. If you want to read more of the nauseating truth, read my special report on the dangers found in your drinking water.

What's In That Health Care Bill?

I must here and now confess that I am less than well informed about the pending Health Reform legislation currently before Congress. The whole 'debate' has been confusing and mostly behind closed doors with deals being cut with who know who and for what reasons. Murky reports do come on a consistent basis in the media, but no clarity as to what is what and how much the whole thing will cost. It has been clear that the government mandated insurance will go in everybody's pocket whether you want what they are selling or not. That sounds like fascism to me. We wonder who has actually read the bill which stretches into the thousands of pages. Maybe the victory by the Republican candidate in Mass. will throw and monkey wrench into the Health Reform Bill juggernaut underway in the Congress. Below is the best short summary of some of the provision of the bill that I have seen. I can not verify the interpretations given, but at least the video is raising the right questions. We should and must demand answers.

Cuba to the Rescue!

Bright spark of hope in Haiti.
The following video footage shows what real help looks like. Cuba and Spain are working together and they have set up the most advanced and efficient emergency response hospital in all of Haiti. While the superpowers of the world seem to like to tie themselves up in bureaucratic knots and get nothing done, the Cubans have hit the ground running and are getting the job done. The world needs to take a lesson from their good example, so we can forget the bitter memories of Katrina and the scandalous seeming indifference that is occurring now. We don't need George W and Bill Clinton in charge.
What a sick joke they are.

The Ultimate Survival Kit

This past Sunday I had the opportunity to speak at Mosque No. 6 in Baltimore. My subject was a continuation of a new topic for me entitled: "A New Slant on How to Eat to Live - Back to the Garden" (an audio tape is available from the mosque) It was actually in part, a report on the recent visit to Growing Power in Milwaukee founder by Will Allen. Will Allen is launching a 'food revolution'. He is teaching an intensive series of workshops in all aspects of 'commercial urban gardening' the center piece of which is the 'hoop house'. A hoop house allows for year round gardening on a commercial scale. As Will said it, "You like to eat year round, so you have to have a source of food year round too." Makes sense. Hoop house contruction is about a $1500 investment. Once you build your compost and make some soil, you're ready to go.
Year round food of your choice in abundance makes the hoop house the ultimate survival kit. And when the economy folds up and the dollar crashes, you will have a commodity to barter and trade with. Food will be the new money - at least for a while. Read the following article to get a glimpse at what may soon be upon us. Then stay tuned for more on hoop house urban agriculture that anyone can do.

How Can Localities Cope if the Dollar Crashes?
A “run on the dollar,” or any currency, for that matter, takes place when the currency is losing its value. This happens when a country’s debt becomes so great that there is danger of a major default–that is, large scale or even national bankruptcy. At that point, people whose wealth is in that currency, or in relatively liquid assets denominated in the currency, try to get rid of them as fast as they can. Today, that includes foreign countries like China or Russia that are holding large quantities of U.S. government bonds.
The U.S. currently is at risk. We see it in personal and business bankruptcies and foreclosures. One result can be a high rate of inflation in certain products like food or gasoline, even while asset prices, as with homes and stocks, are going down. The question is now whether the “recovery” that is underway can be sustained or will there be another crash like there was in late 2008 to early 2009.
Forecasters are projecting this recovery to last until June 2010 but are foreseeing slippage at that point. Investors at this time are still putting money into the stock market and getting out of dollars. By June, the U.S. government had better come up with a strategy for real economic growth–which means jobs–or we will likely see the “double-dip” recession many have predicted. Personally I see no way growth can be sustained unless the national debt burden shrinks. This can only be done through an orderly process of debt forgiveness, a resurgence of economic production, or a default that could be catastrophic.
Is there any way people and localities can protect themselves? The best way, in my opinion, is to put our resources, including our time and labor, into producing something of value in the real physical economy. Since most people’s largest asset is their homes, home maintenance and repair might work. It won’t make you rich, but it could put food on the table.
Speaking of food, growing it is another option. In many locations, there is a greater demand for locally-produced food than there are producers to meet that demand. In a couple of months it will be time to start planting this year’s garden. People could get together as a community and make plans for gardens big enough to sell the surplus at local outdoor markets. Buying and selling products at the local level can also become an economic engine to fuel the creation of a local currency.
A strategy of local food production can also address the problem that the era of cheap food in the U.S. is coming to an end. This is happening partly because a large portion of food prices consists of the cost of the fossil fuels used in growing, harvesting, and transporting the food to market. Gasoline prices are on the rise again. This will take food prices upward as well.
Local farming, by contrast, places food production close to the end consumer. Personal health also benefits from higher quality food and from getting outdoors and becoming more physically active.
As the national economy gets worse, it’s time for people to roll up their sleeves and get to work doing for themselves what big finance, big oil, and big government can no longer do.

Short Wave Radio, A Necessary Part of Survival

One of the aspects of the Haiti disaster is the failure of communications. But one form of communications did not fail - low tech short wave radio! When we think about our 'survival kit' we all think about canned food, candles and sleeping bags. But what about communications? High tech communications like cell phones and Internet will in all likelihood be inoperable at the height of any natural disaster emergency. How will you keep in touch with the world to find out what is going on and to let the world know you are still in it? One low tech answer is short wave radio. It deserves your and my consideration as the leading candidate to keep communications open when all else is failing.

Low-tech radios connect some Haitians
By John D. Sutter, CNN

Amateur radio provides a back-up link between Haiti and the world
Proponents say radio signals are often the only way to communicate after a disaster
A Haitian man says amateur radio helped him contact family in the U.S.
After initial outages, mobile phone service has been returning to Haiti
(CNN) -- In the brutal aftermath of Haiti's earthquake, Jean-Robert Gaillard turned to his low-tech radio for solace and for a lifeline.
When the earthquake hit, the 57-year-old from Petionville, Haiti, found most of his normal lines of communication -- his cell phone, the Internet, even his ability to walk down the street and talk to someone -- severed by the disaster.
But Gaillard used a neighbor's generator to power up his radio and connect to a handful of amateur radio enthusiasts in the United States -- many of whom were eagerly listening to radio static for calls like his.
Unlike many other people in Haiti, Gaillard was able to contact family members in the United States soon after the January 12 earthquake hit to tell them he had survived.
In those first hellish moments, that connection seemed like a miracle.
"It relieved the tension of my family members," he said, speaking by Skype from Haiti on Tuesday, which he says wasn't possible until more recently. "They could hear my voice. They knew that I was OK."

Much has been made about the role flashier
technologies like Twitter, Skype and text messaging have played in helping disaster victims find loved ones and communicate with international aid workers. But it is worth noting that, when all else fails, the low-tech hum of a radio frequency is sometimes the only line of communication that's open.
iReport: Search list of the missing and the found
Enthusiasts of amateur radio -- or ham radio -- are quick to use this as evidence that international aid groups and governments should rely more heavily on radio in disaster situations. Ham radio signals bounce off of a layer of charged particles in Earth's atmosphere, called the ionosphere, and, depending on the conditions, can work at times when other modes of communication fail.
But amateur radio is best viewed as one of many communications options in the wake of a disaster, said Keith Robertory, manager of disaster services technology at the American Red Cross, who has been helping in Haiti relief efforts from Washington.
The best communication technology in a disaster, he said, is whatever happens to work at the time.
"Amateur radio is a very powerful tool if the amateur radio operators are in the area where the disaster occurs," he said. "There's a window of opportunity for amateur radio operators right at the beginning [of a disaster]. ... That's where they are extremely valuable."
Because that window has now passed, cell phone connections, text messages, Twitter posts and Skype calls are becoming more significant, he said.
A 23-year-old woman, for example,

was rescued in Haiti after text messages were sent
from beneath the rubble of a school building.
Full coverage Twitter updates
Radio stations in Port-au-Prince, the Haitian capital, have been broadcasting almost since the earthquake, providing the only means of communication for some people, Agence France-Presse reports.
Some mobile phone towers in Haiti fell during the earthquake, and cell phone service was not returned to much of the country until at least two days after the tremors first shook the poor Caribbean nation, according to a mobile phone company operating in Haiti.
About a third of people in
Haiti have access to mobile phones, compared to nearly 90 percent of people in the United States.
Reports suggest Internet connections also were spotty in the earthquake's aftermath; and only about 11 percent of Haitians have access to the Web in non-disaster situations, according to the
CIA World Factbook.
Aid groups and journalists have relied on satellite phones, which work independently from local Internet and mobile phone infrastructure as long as the sky isn't too cloudy.
Such technology isn't commonly available for disaster victims, however.
Carol Wilson, compliance director for Trilogy International Partners, which provides mobile phone service to about 1 million people in Haiti, said 80 percent of the company's cell towers in Haiti were working as of Tuesday.
The company is donating out $5 worth of free phone calls to its customers and is giving people double the amount of minutes they would normally get so they can catch up with loved ones and communicate with aid groups, she said.

The main problem with mobile phone connections now, she said, may be fuel, since generators are used to power most cellular towers in Haiti.
In the immediate wake of the disaster, before cell phone coverage was restored, William F. Sturridge, a ham radio operator in Flagler Beach, Florida, said he was able to connect a priest living on the remote Haitian village of Ile-a-Vache with his family members in the United States.
On Wednesday morning, the day after the earthquake hit, he said he heard a faint call of "hotel, hotel," which signifies the "HH" letters at the beginning of radio call signs in Haiti. He responded immediately.
"When other systems don't work, [radio] always works," he said. "It doesn't matter -- no matter where you are in the world ... you can get a [high-frequency] signal out and somebody will hear."
After connecting with the priest in Haiti, Sturridge said he called the man's brother to tell him his sibling had survived the earthquake.
"He was super worried," he said. "They hadn't heard from him, and it was wonderful to be able to pass the information and hear the relief in the voice."
Sturridge said he's been listening for radio calls from Haiti almost non-stop, with no sleep, since the earthquake hit a week ago. The 51-year-old is disabled, and he said the radio gives him a lifeline to the outside world as well.
"It's very difficult for someone who is bed-bound to be able to work and be able to enjoy the benefits of helping other people, so this is one way I can do this very easily," he said.
"Certainly, I can't think of anything more rewarding than saving a life."
While the ability for even one person to communicate with the outside world immediately after a disaster has potentially huge impact, the number of people making calls from Haiti by amateur radio appears to be very small.
Brian Crow, who has been communicating with people in Haiti by radio from outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, said only three people in Haiti have made contact with the United States by ham radio since the earthquake.

Crow said his primary role has been taking calls, finding out what aid is needed, and relaying the information to Web sites collecting news about missing people.
A number of sites -- including
CNN's iReport and Google -- are creating databases with information about missing people in Haiti.
Other groups have put together population estimates based on satellite maps as a way for aid groups to target their relief efforts. And a site called
Ushahidi is mapping text messages and calls for help in Haiti to give aid groups a better picture of dire needs for food, water and medical help.
Gaillard, the Haitian man who used ham radio to contact loved ones, said the week following Haiti's earthquake has been absolute hell.
But the fact that he could get on the radio and talk to people outside the situation made him feel connected to the world and has given him the strength to keep going.
"We are in God's hands now," he said.

Clear Choice of Life or Death

The article in blue is something you have not heard about in the general media. It shows that there has been no deaths from the use of supplements. Good news, right? Why does it not get mentioned on the evening news shows? Does it have anything to do with the fact that the biggest sponsors of the network news shows are the big drug companies? Maybe so.

The article in red is showing the other side of the coin. Supplements don't harm anyone, not even a single person in all of last year. But what about the FDA approved drugs and treatments that constitute mainstream orthodox medical practice in the United States? It turns out that the medical system itself is the biggest killer of all, out-stipping cancer and heart disease! Read and compare. Which one do you choose?

No Deaths from Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids Or Herbs

Poison Control Statistics Prove Supplements' Safety
Orthomolecular Medicine News Service

(OMNS) -- There was not even one death caused by a dietary supplement in 2008, according to the most recent information collected by the U.S. National Poison Data System. The new 174-page annual report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers, published in the journal Clinical Toxicology, shows zero deaths from multiple vitamins; zero deaths from any of the B vitamins; zero deaths from vitamins A, C, D, or E; and zero deaths from any other vitamin.

Additionally, there were no deaths whatsoever from any amino acid or herbal product. This means no deaths at all from blue cohosh, echinacea, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, kava kava, St. John's wort , valerian, yohimbe, Asian medicines, ayurvedic medicines, or any other botanical. There were zero deaths from creatine, blue-green algae, glucosamine, chondroitin, melatonin, or any homeopathic remedies.

Furthermore, there were zero deaths in 2008 from any dietary mineral supplement. This means there were no fatalities from calcium, magnesium, chromium, zinc, colloidal silver, selenium, iron, or multimineral supplements. Two children died as a result of medical use of the antacid sodium bicarbonate. The other "Electrolyte and Mineral" category death was due to a man accidentally drinking sodium hydroxide, a highly toxic degreaser and drain-opener.

No man, woman or child died from nutritional supplements. Period.

61 poison centers provide coast-to-coast data for the U.S. National Poison Data System, which is then reviewed by 29 medical and clinical toxicologists. NPDS, the authors write, is "one of the few real-time national surveillance systems in existence, providing a model public health surveillance system for all types of exposures, public health event identification, resilience response and situational awareness tracking."

Over half of the U.S. population takes daily nutritional supplements. Even if each of those people took only one single tablet daily, that makes 154,000,000 individual doses per day, for a total of over 56 billion doses annually. Since many persons take more than just one vitamin or mineral tablet, actual consumption is considerably higher, and the safety of nutritional supplements is all the more remarkable.

If nutritional supplements are allegedly so "dangerous," as the FDA and news media so often claim, then where are the bodies?

Those who wonder if the media are biased against vitamins may consider this: how many television stations, newspapers, magazines, and medical journals have reported that no one dies from nutritional supplements?

The American Medical System
Is The Leading Cause Of Death And Injury

In The United States

By Gary Null PhD, Carolyn Dean MD ND, Martin Feldman MD, Debora Rasio MD, Dorothy Smith PhD
A definitive review and close reading of medical peer-review journals, and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good. The number of people having in-hospital, adverse drug reactions (ADR) to prescribed medicine is 2.2 million. (1) Dr. Richard Besser, of the CDC, in 1995, said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections was 20 million. Dr. Besser, in 2003, now refers to tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics. (2, 2a)The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million. (3) The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million. (4) The total number of iatrogenic [induced inadvertently by a physician or surgeon or by medical treatment or diagnostic procedures] deaths is 783,936.The 2001 heart disease annual death rate is 699,697; the annual cancer death rate is 553,251.

Vaccines Alter the Genetic Structure of Human Beings

The following article may be hard reading for some, but it is actually worth it to go through it. It is a little bit technical, but the main points are clear.

Vaccines may alter the genetic structure of a human being!

We are human because we have the genetic makeup of a human being. This is called the human genome. If through vaccines the human genome is altered, then is it still the human genome?

If a 'person' has an alteration in its genome is that 'person', strictly speaking, still human?

In other words, have our children been made into hybrid human beings?

Mixtures of monkeys, pigs, chickens, cows, goats, viruses, bacteria, etc.

The article shows that these genetic changes are passed from parents to their children,

making them permanent.

This is the major reason vaccines are dangerous and should be outlawed:

They change the human genome!

We assert out right to remain human!

Enjoy. Learn. Think. Share.

(Note on my related blog, Original Dialogue, just today I posted an article about human mutation experiments going on at Plum Island, NY. Check it out.

It's all related.)

Are Current Childhood Vaccine programs compromising the genetics
of present and future generations?
Harold E. Buttram
Previously published parts of this “Vaccine Overview” series reviewed the steadily increasing patterns of physical and mental health problems which have taken place since the relatively innocent times of the 1930s, largely involving the “4-A Disorders” (i.e., Autism, ADHD, Asthma, Allergies), now afflicting roughly one third of America’s children.(1) They also reviewed the U.S. Congressional Hearings on Vaccine Safety (1999-December, 2004) which revealed gross deficiencies in vaccine safety testing by federal health bureaucracies (FDA, CDC, NIH, etc.), as defined by Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) and Quality of Evidence Ratings (QER).(2,3)
Because of surveillance and reporting deficiencies, we have no means of proving adverse vaccine reactions when they do occur. Since the growing patterns of adverse childhood health patterns have run parallel with increasing numbers of vaccines being administered (now up to 32 inoculations before school), common sense would have us suspect a causal relationship.
From a conceptual standpoint it is inconceivable that these adverse childhood health trends are not accompanied by corresponding genetic compromise and hybridization, the sources of which would be large-scale vaccine contamination with retroviruses and their reverse transcriptase enzymes, capable of imprinting viral DNA into the genetics of our children.
Although the human immune system is of almost inconceivable complexity in its detailed functions, the basic principles are quite simple, which might be compared with a medieval castle with an outer mote, an outer wall with parapets, and an inner defense wall, all of which serve to protect the king (brain and nervous system) and queen (genetic system).
Following this model, the human immune system is divided into two major classes: Cellular Immunity, located in the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts and their respective lymph nodes (outer defenses), and Humoral Immunity, with production of antigen-specific antibodies by plasma cells in the bone marrow (inner defenses). For eons of time the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts have been the primary sites of infectious microbe entry into the body so that, of necessity, mucosal immunity has evolved as the primary defense system, with humoral immunity serving a secondary or backup role. As reviewed earlier, vaccines are reversing these roles, (4) attempting to substitute vaccine-induced humoral immunity for the far more efficient mucosal immunity, the latter in turn undergoing a process of “atrophy of disuse” as a result of this role-switching.
The present article addresses some of the known pathways whereby some viral vaccines may be implanting their genetic material into the DNA of our children, and of the possible consequences.
Grossly Overlooked Mutational Risks
Viral vaccines, composed of mainly genetic material, may pose as much, or even greater, potential risk for causing genetic hybridization than other forms of vaccines (i.e., live viral or attenuated vaccines). This warning is supported by a study reported in Viral Research, in which a nuclear polyhedrosis virus was sent through 24 serial passages of culture media resulting in both “genetic insertions into and deletions from the virus,” (5) suggesting a propensity of viruses to accept, carry, and transfer genetic material from host to host.
This research and consideration takes on more gravity when we consider the extent of foreign genetic contamination in current vaccines:
“Among the 32 vaccines in current use, 7 contain chick embryo fluid or protein, 3 contain cells from monkeys, 1 contains sheep’s red blood cells, 1 contains mouse serum, 1 contains material from guinea-pig embryos, and 4 have cells from human aborted fetal tissue.”(6)
Additional research shows that vaccines containing aluminum, the mercury-based preservative (Thimerosal), and formaldehyde, pose additional risks for prompting genetic mutations following intoxications.(6a-d)
As reviewed by Roberts in “The Dangerous Impurities of Vaccines:”
“In 1998 and 1999 scientists representing the World Health Organization (WHO) met with the senior vaccine regulatory scientists from the USA and UK at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Washington D.C. to discuss the safety of the manufacturing methods employed to produce vaccines. No journalists were present, but official transcripts were kept. What they record is that all the many experts that spoke expressed grave concern over the safety of the manufacturing process currently employed to make the licensed vaccines, such as MMR, flu, yellow fever, and polio. It was reported by leading experts that the vaccines could not be purified, were “primitive,” made on “crude materials,” and the manufacturers could not meet lowered government standards. WHO specialists reported the widespread and continuing presence in the MMR vaccine of chicken leucosis virus. Others spoke about the presence of foamy virus, many other viruses, toxins, foreign proteins, enzymes and possibly prions and oncogenes, (which, being of equal or smaller size than the desired viral vaccines, cannot be filtered out). Grave concerns were expressed about the levels of foreign residual DNA and RNA contaminating the vaccines. It was feared that this (contamination) could be causing cancers and autoimmune diseases.” (7, 8)
Immune Suppression as a Co-Factor in Mutagenesis
In addition to the proneness of viral vaccines to exchange and transfer genetic material from host to host, another danger is that viral vaccines are inherently immunosuppressive, as reflected in the fact that viral infections tend to lower white blood cell (WBC) counts in contrast to bacterial infections, which raise WBC counts. Furthermore, in the field of chemical toxicology it is universally recognized that combinations of toxins may bring exponential increases of toxicity; that is a combination of two chemicals may bring a 10-fold increase in toxicity, three chemicals 100-fold increases. (9, 10) This same principle almost certainly applies to the immunosuppressive effects of viral vaccines when administered in combination, as with the MMR vaccine, among which the measles vaccine is exceptionally immunosuppresive. (11-13)
Returning to the medieval castle model of the human immune system, it is probable that the powerful, immune-suppressant effects of viral vaccines, when given in combination, may paralyze first-line cellular (mucosal) immune defenses sufficiently to allow viral DNA-grafting to take place into the genetics of many infants.
Considering that these vaccines will also be carrying elements of foreign bovine (from gelatin), chicken, monkey, and human proteins, which will also be transplanted into infant genetics, it might not be far amiss to consider viruses as nature’s ultimate polluters, all the more insidious because the process remains unrecognized.
Retroviruses and Reverse Transcriptase
“A retrovirus is a virus that does not enter host cells with a DNA genome, but an RNA genome. The most common way the RNA genome is replicated is via the enzyme reverse transcriptase to make DNA out if its RNA genome. The DNA is then incorporated into the host’s genome by an integrase enzyme. The virus thereafter replicates as part of the host cell’s DNA. Retroviruses are enveloped viruses that belong to the viral family, Retroviridae.” (14)
“Reverse transcriptase, also known as RNA-dependent DNA polymerase, is an enzyme that transcribes single-stranded RNA into double-stranded DNA…Normal transcription involves synthesis of RNA from DNA; hence,
reverse transcription is the reverse of this.” (15)
It is not necessary to understand these technical terms to know their underlying meanings. As outlined in Dr. Sherri Tenpenny’s scholarly text, Fowl! Bird Flu: It’s Not What You Think:
“Because of the way reverse transcriptase works in living cells, it is possible that genetic material from chicken viruses (and other retroviruses) is being woven into human DNA, especially that of our children.” (16)
Known sources of retrovirus/reverse transcriptase contaminations include the avian leukosis virus subgroup E and endogenous avian virus in measles and mumps vaccines (17) the influenza vaccine, (18) the sources being traced back to cultures in fertilized chicken eggs.
M.G. Montinari and Immunogenetics
Dr. Montinari and colleagues are best known for investigating the relationship between postvaccine central nervous system (CNS) diseases and mutation of human leukocyte antigens, (HLA) which essentially strip the body’s brain and nerve tissues of their outer coating of myelin. (19) The HLA system is one which aids an individual’s immune system to differentiate that which is “self” from that which is “nonself.” Although the mechanisms are complex, it is a system which, during embryonic life, learns to recognize healthy or normal cells of the body as “self” so that these cells will remain unmolested by the search and destroy mechanisms of the immune system, leaving the immune system free to eliminate foreign invaders. Of special concern is the fact that the HLA system also carries an increased proneness to mutations, which may result in an impairment of self-recognition. This process may be the fundamental cause underlying autoimmune disorders, in which the immune system attacks the cells of its own body.
Montinari found that certain alleles of HLA (A3 and DR7) were more frequent in patients with postvaccine-induced illness, which implicates an immunogenetic basis for such illnesses. What caused much concern was that Montinari and other researchers implicated vaccine adjuvants (additives), such as mercury-containing Thimerosal, as causing genetic mutations by modifying the amino acids in presenting antigen proteins. (20-22)
Herpes Virus Integration with DNA Transferred from Parents to Babies
Based on a public release of 2-Sept-2008 from the University of Rochester Medical Center, new research has shown that some parents pass on the human herpes virus 6 (HHV6) to their children because it is integrated into the parental chromosomes. This is the first time a virus has been shown to become a part of the human DNA and then get passed to subsequent generations.
This unique form of congenital infection may be occurring in as many as 1 in 116 newborns according to the report. The long-term consequences for a child’s development and immune system are unknown. (23)
Since it is known that viral DNA can be engrafted into parental DNA and then passed on to subsequent generations, should we not be investigating today’s live virus vaccines from this standpoint and looking into the possible consequences?
Summary and Conclusions
As outlined above, there are several factors indicating a possibility that the soaring incidence of physical and mental illnesses among today’s children are causally related to current childhood vaccine programs. Primary among these is the large-scale contamination of the measles, mumps, and influenza vaccines with retroviruses capable of engrafting their genetics into the DNA of childhood recipients. This is rendered more likely because of the cavalier regard with which combinations of viral vaccines are now being administered, primarily involving the MMR vaccines, but conceivably also in combination with chicken pox and influenza vaccines in today’s vaccine schedules, in spite of the toxicology principle that combinations of toxins may bring exponential (10-fold or 100-fold) increases in toxicity.
With some of today’s routine viral vaccines known to be contaminated with retroviruses and administered under conditions likely to bring varying degrees of immune paralysis in the recipient, these are conditions under which genetic hybridization would appear to be likely or inevitable.
Admittedly, this is indirect evidence which does not constitute proof, but consider this: The steadily increasing patterns of physical and/or mental illnesses among American children show no signs of abating. Unless this issue is definitively addressed, at some future time the process will pass a point of no return socially and economically from the sheer numbers of incapacitated children.
America unquestionably has the scientific technology to work out the proof that is needed to mandate a reduction and modification of current vaccine programs. The question is whether or not we have the necessary insights and determination to do so.

Who Owns the Water?

We all know the terms, 'globalization' and 'privatization' since they have been bantered about for the last 20 to 30 years. Both terms have policy implications for governments around the world and for all of the people around the world. The principles of globalization and privatization are embraced by both major political parties, and there is no debate. These principles constitute an religious outlook that is above challenge and which are jealously guarded by the 'high-priests' of this new pagan religion, that is also entwined with 'environmentalism'. Thus we have a new trinity of faith that guides action producing a new ethics. But from a practical point of view what these terms mean in reality is corporate ownership and control of all of the resources of the world environment. This includes food, air and water, the key elements upon which human life depends.

A traditional folksong went:

No, not just fluoride, which is bad enough - much of our drinking water, in the U.S., Canada and U.K. at least, is contaminated with Prozac and a "vast array" of other drugs.
And you wonder why everyone around is sleepwalking and/or sick?
Study Finds Traces of Drugs in Drinking Water in 24 Major U.S. Regions
A vast array of pharmaceuticals — including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones — have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans, an Associated Press investigation shows.To be sure, the concentrations of these pharmaceuticals are tiny, measured in quantities of parts per billion or trillion, far below the levels of a medical dose. Also, utilities insist their water is safe.But the presence of so many prescription drugs — and over-the-counter medicines like acetaminophen and ibuprofen — in so much of our drinking water is heightening worries among scientists of long-term consequences to human health....
Prozac in Tap Water
Nine different drugs were found in water samples near 20 different water treatment plants across Ontario, Canada. The drugs were "acidic pharmaceuticals", which include ibuprofin and neproxin (painkillers), gemfibrozil (cholesterol-lowering medicine), and prozac (anti-depressant). The area with the highest levels of contamination were from locations near sewage treatment plants, suggesting that the chemicals are getting into our water supply from our own bodily wastes! Areas that tested the lowest were plants whose sourcing water was from groundwater or lakes...
Prozac 'found in drinking water'
Traces of the antidepressant Prozac can be found in the nation's drinking water, it has been revealed.An Environment Agency report suggests so many people are taking the drug nowadays it is building up in rivers and groundwater.A report in Sunday's Observer says the government's environment watchdog has discussed the impact for human health.A spokesman for the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) said the Prozac found was most likely highly diluted....
The following film is not about drugs but about water, per se. A very frightening situation!
