FDA Deletes 1 Million Signatures for GMO Labeling Campaign

FDA Deletes 1 Million Signatures for GMO Labeling Campaign

While the Food and Drug Administration has seemingly reached the limit for unbelievable behavior, the company’s decisions continue to astound and appall consumers and health activists alike. In the agency’s latest decision, undoubtedly amazing thousands of individuals yet again, the FDA virtually erased 1 million signatures and comments on the ‘Just Label It’ campaign calling for the labeling of genetically modified foods.

FDA Deletes 1 Million Signatures for GMO Labeling Campaign

The ‘Just Label It” campaign has gotten more signatures than any campaign in history for the labeling of genetically modified foods. Since October of 2011, the campaign has received over 900,000 signatures, with 55 politicians joining in on the movement. So what’s the problem here?

Evidently, the FDA counts the amount of signatures not by how many people signed, but how many different individual letters are brought to it. To the FDA, even tens of thousands of signatures presented on a single petition are counted as – you guessed it – a single comment. This is how, despite over a million supporters being gathered by the petition, the FDA concluded a count of only 394.

“This is an election year and there are more than a million people who say this is important to them. This is petition has nothing to do with whether or genetically modified foods are dangerous. We don’t label dangerous foods, we take them off the shelves. This petition is about a the citizens’ right to know what they are eating and whether or not these foods represent a novel change.” said Andrew Kimbrell an attorney for the Center for Food Safety, one of the partner groups on the Just Label It campaign.

Take this with cranberry juice to lower your blood pressure

Take this with cranberry juice to
lower your blood pressure

On Monday, I showed you an easy way to soften your arteries and help avoid heart disease and heart attacks. All you have to do is drink cranberry juice. Today, I'd like to show you another way to avoid heart disease by lowering your blood pressure.

High blood pressure is a sign that your heart is working harder to pump blood through your circulatory system. This could be because of a blockage, stiffer arteries, or the result of taking a stimulant, such as caffeine. If your blood pressure is high due to stiffer arteries, the cranberry juice can help. But a new study says you should also take a very common supplement.

Vitamin E's Superstar Cousin:

✓ Lowers Total Cholesterol…

✓ Lowers "Bad" LDL...…

✓ Raises "Good" HDL...…

✓ Lowers Triglycerides...…

✓ And Actually Raises CoQ10...…

In this new study, researchers wanted to know if magnesium can lower blood pressure. Other recent studies haven't been able to come up with a conclusive answer. Some reported highly significant results, where the magnesium brought the blood pressure down to very low levels. Others found only minimal decreases in pressure. So these researchers looked at the data of 22 different studies on 1,173 participants to find out if magnesium works.

In these studies, researchers gave between 120 to 973 mgs daily for up to 24 weeks. They found that magnesium does indeed lower blood pressure, but it's often only a small, but significant amount. The authors noted that the greater the dose, the bigger the drop in pressure. And it usually took at least 370 mgs to see a drop.

This makes complete sense. Most integrative physicians will tell you to take at least 500 mgs daily, but you can take up to 1,000 mgs (or bowel tolerance).

Why do some studies suggest that magnesium doesn't work? I suspect there are a couple of explanations. First, the dose may be too small in those studies. Second, it all depends on the cause of your high blood pressure. Magnesium isn't likely to have any effect (or very little) when a blockage is causing your pressure to go up.

However, if your arteries are stiff, then magnesium is the perfect solution. Magnesium has a relaxing effect on arterial walls and muscles. So it can help your circulatory system relax and become more flexible.

A few weeks ago, I told you this effect can help save your heart (and your life) during a heart attack. Keeping your heart muscle and your vascular system relaxed can lower your blood pressure and help you avoid heart attacks and stroke. It can even help you avoid blood clots, which are more likely to develop in stiff arteries.

Make sure you're taking 500-1,000 mg of magnesium every day (the more the better). The best form is magnesium glycinate, which you can find in most health food stores and online.

Your insider for better health,

Steve Kroening

New Study: Hepatitis B Vaccine Damages The Liver

New Study: Hepatitis B Vaccine Damages The Liver

by Sarah, The Healthy Home Economist on March 30, 2012

in Healthy Pregnancy, Baby & Child,Vaccination

When Jodi Ferris unknowingly unleashed the wrath of Social Services at Penn State Hershey Medical Center by questioning the necessity of the Hepatitis B vaccine for her newborn daughter, little did she know just how big a can of worms she was opening.

A study reported in the journal Apoptosis just weeks ago indicates that this controversial vaccine normally injected into newborns within hours of birth induces liver damage primarily due to the presence of the toxic vaccine adjuvant aluminum hydroxide.

Aluminum hydroxide, an adjuvant also present in the anthrax vaccine, has already been shown as a likely culprit for triggering the motor neuron autoimmunity issues present in Gulf War Syndrome which are indistinguishable from the autoimmune disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Vaccine adjuvants like aluminum hydroxide are the dirty little secret that the scientific community doesn’t want the public to know about. Their purpose is to stimulate and heighten the immune response to the vaccine itself.

In this new study, aluminum hydroxide induced loss of mitochondrial integrity and cell death in mouse liver cells exposed to low doses of the Hepatitis B vaccine containing the toxic adjuvant.

The mitochondria is the “powerhouse” of a cell where energy is created and cellular respiration occurs. It is not surprising that compromising the mitochondria of liver cells results in outright death of the cell itself.

This new study corroborates other research indicating liver damage from Hep B. In 1999, it was found that children less than 6 years old had a nearly 300% increase in the incidence of liver problems if they had been vaccinated with Hepatitis B versus those children that did not have the Hep B jab.

It’s not just the young developing livers of children that suffer from the toxic Hep B. The Journal Hepatogastroenterology reported in 2002 that the Hepatitis B vaccine was statistically associated with increased risk for hepatitis, gastrointestinal disease, and liver function test abnormalities in adult females.

Did you get that?

The Hepatitis B vaccine is statistically associated with increased risk for hepatitis in adults!

A more recent study in June 2011 reported by the journal Molecular Biology Reports indicates that damage from Hep B is likely caused by alteration in the expression of 144 genes in mouse livers within one day of vaccination, 7 of which are associated with inflammation and metabolism.

The Only Sane Answer is Rejection of the Hepatitis B Vaccine

To date, 50+ negative health effects from the Hepatitis B vaccine have been documented in peer-reviewed, published literature.

The thing that makes absolutely zero sense is why the controversial and very questionable Hepatitis B vaccine is still being recommended as standard for all newborns within hours of birth especially given that a newborn’s liver does not even begin functioning until several days later.

With no functioning liver to assist with detoxification, the damaging effects of the toxic Hep B ingredients would no doubt be magnified with the risk of irreparable harm to the newborn great.

If you are a parent with a baby on the way, please do your research and learn the extreme danger of the Hepatitis B vaccine to your newborn.

Even if you have been supportive of vaccination in the past, at least skip this one controversial shot that has so much documented literature about its damaging effects.

There is simply no logical reason to vaccinate all newborns against a disease that is primarily sexually transmitted or contracted via the used needles of drug addicts. Better to screen mothers preemptively rather than vaccinate all newborns with this dangerous drug cocktail that threatens their long term health.

Curcumin found to prevent brain degenerative diseases including Parkinson's and Alzheimer's

Curcumin found to prevent brain degenerative diseases including Parkinson's and Alzheimer's

(NaturalNews) Curcumin, the bioactive compound found in the Indian curry spice turmeric and commonly referred to as 'holy powder', has been used for centuries in folk medicine to treat wounds, infections, and other health problems. Today researchers are using the power of the evolving science of epigenetics to reveal how curcumin is crucial in the fight against many forms of cancer, as it causes metastatic cells to undergo programmed cell death, or apoptosis.

Researchers from Michigan State University, publishing the result of a study in the Journal of Biological Chemistry have found that this amazing natural compound is able to prevent the destructive formation of alpha-synuclein proteins that are the hallmark presentation in many neurodegenerative disease such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease. Curcumin is one a very select group of structures that is able to cross the delicate blood-brain barrier to affect biochemical and electrical activities in the brain. The turmeric derivative has demonstrated the unique capability to prevent clumping or aggregation leading to disease development.

Curcumin aids protein folding to prevent brain tangles and degeneration
The team lead researcher, Dr. Basir Ahmad and scientists conducting the study commented "Our research shows that curcumin can rescue proteins from aggregation, the first steps of many debilitating diseases... more specifically, curcumin binds strongly to alpha-synuclein and prevents aggregation at body temperatures."

The team used precise lasers to study the split-second formation of proteins known as 'protein folding'. Normally, proteins are folded at lightning fast speed at the direction of genes and DNA sequences. Damage to DNA caused by poor diet and lifestyle factors from epigenetic alterations results in mis-folded proteins and neurodegenerative disease.

Researchers found that when curcumin attaches to alpha-synuclein it not only stops clumping, but it also raises the protein's folding or reconfiguration rate. By slowing the speed that the proteins form, curcumin effectively inhibits abnormal protein clumping to prevent tangles and damage to the nerve synapses. Chemical and electrical communications are retained that help to help prevent the early manifestation of Parkinson's disease.

Curcumin can be added to the diet with liberal use of the Indian curry spice in meal preparation. Many people do not enjoy the taste of curry infused foods. For those individuals, nutrition advisors recommend a standardized supplement (std. to 95% total curcuminoids for maximum bioavailability) providing 300 to 500 mg daily to prevent neurodegenerative decline.

Abstract Image
The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant, damaged by an earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011 released large amounts of 131I into the atmosphere, which was assimilated into canopy blades of Macrocystis pyrifera sampled from coastal California. The specific activity calculated to the estimated date of deposition/assimilation ranged from 0.6 to 2.5 Bq gdwt–1, levels greater than those measured from kelps from Japan and Canada prior to the release. These 131I levels represent a significant input into the kelp forest ecosystem. Canopy-forming kelps are a natural coastal dosimeter that can measure the exposure of the coastal environment to 131I and perhaps other radioisotopes released from nuclear accidents. An organizational mechanism should be in place to ensure that they are sampled immediately and continuously after such releases.

World Bank Nominee Tied to Monsanto Shareholder Bill Gates, Soros

World Bank Nominee Tied to Monsanto Shareholder Bill Gates, Soros

Tim McCoy
March 28, 2012

pillblackdrips 220x137 World Bank Nominee Tied to Monsanto Shareholder Bill Gates, SorosObama nominated Dartmouth University president Jim Yong Kim, M.D. to head the United Nations World Bank. Most people think that UN agencies benefit poor people, but this is far from the truth.

The UN World Bank claims to fight poverty in developing nations by financing infrastructure projects. But the UN World Bank is really a tool used to acquire Third World natural resources through conditions on loans that are extremely difficult to repay. The raw resources are then privatized by insider multi-national corporations. The World Bank actually creates more poverty.

The nomination of Jim Yong Kim indicates that the World Bank may shift away from focusing on infrastructure and will instead turn toward providing health care in Third World countries. Jim Yong Kim’s areas of interest include vaccines for tuberculosis as well as drugs for HIV and AIDS.

Kim brokered a deal with Big Pharma and the UN World Health Organization for expanding the pharmaceutical drug market to a larger populace in exchange for lower drug prices for second-line tuberculosis drugs. Second-line drugs are used when basic treatment fails because of drug resistance. Drug resistance similar to the new ‘resistant White Plague‘ brought about by big pharma’s drugs. Many in the medical community believed it would be dangerous to distribute second-line drugs widely. Kim is also responsible for pushing HIV/AIDS retroviral drugs in developing nations.

HIV/AIDS drugs used in the Third World have profound side effects that include eye, kidney, liver and heart problems.

Jim Yong Kim says that the highest point in his career was when George Soros donated to Kim’s tuberculosis vaccine program, which was followed by a a huge grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for $44.7 million. Monsanto shareholder Bill Gates, who has repeatedly stated that Monsanto’s GMOs are the answer to starvation despite scientific proof of the contrary, gave a controversial speech at a Ted conference outlining the controversial population reduction plan through ‘healthcare’:

“The world today has 6.8 billion people… that’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

Additionally, Kim is the co-founder of Partners in Health along with Paul Farmer who is famous for saying that healthcare is a right. Healthcare as a “right” disables health freedom to escape the medical health paradigm and choose your own methods of healing. In addition, it also enables the government to determine whether or not an individual may receive care — the ‘right’ to live or die. Therefore, this shocking and disturbing program falls into the category of a eugenics-based plan.


The objective of Jim Yong Kim heading the UN World Bank appears to be to promote ludicrous policies by expanding healthcare through dangerous drugs. Kim’s support for redistribution of wealth and socialized medicine may come with a tremendous price tag for developed countries (especially the US). If the UN World Bank was truly a benevolent organization, the focus for the Third World would be on support for independent farming, clean water and food.

A recent study revealed that nut eaters gain several health benefits compared to non-nut eaters, including lower weight and systolic blood pressure, decreased waist circumference, and a lower risk of diabetes and metabolic syndrome
Nuts are excellent sources of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and they can boost your heart health and your overall health
Choose nuts that are organic and raw; avoid those that are irradiated, pasteurized or coated in sugar
Most almonds sold in the United States are pasteurized, but can still be labeled raw; it is still possible to purchase raw almonds in the U.S., but it has to be done very carefully from vendors selling small quantities that have a waiver from the pasteurization requirement

By Dr. Mercola

If you're looking for a nutritious, quick snack, nuts (raw, organic and in moderation) are a near perfect option.

With healthy fats, fiber, plant sterols and many vitamins and minerals, nuts pack a powerful nutritional punch, all wrapped up in a tiny bite-sized package.

In fact, a recent epidemiologic study revealed that nuts offer many benefits for your health, even reducing your risk of serious chronic disease.

Nuts Support Heart Health, Lower Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome Risk

Which Nuts are Healthiest?

You can't really go wrong when choosing nuts to eat, as long as you pay attention to quality. By this I mean look for nuts that are organic and raw, not irradiated or pasteurized (see below for more details). One exception is peanuts, which I typically avoid, and which are technically in the legume family. Along with being one of the most pesticide-laden foods you can eat, most peanuts are also contaminated with aflatoxin, a carcinogenic mold. My favorite nuts are pecans, walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts. Generally speaking, each type of nut will offer a slightly different mix of nutrients for your health. For instance:

Almonds: One of the healthiest aspects of almonds appears to be their skins, as they are rich in antioxidants including phenols, flavonoids and phenolic acids, which are typically associated with vegetables and fruits. As the Almond Board of California reported, a study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry even revealed that a one-ounce serving of almonds has a similar amount of total polyphenols as a cup of steamed broccoli or green tea.iv
Walnuts: Walnuts are good sources of plant-based omega-3 fats, natural phytosterols and antioxidants that are so powerful at free-radical scavenging that researchers called them "remarkable."v Plus, walnuts may help reduce not only the risk of prostate cancer, but breast cancer as well.
Pecans: Pecans contain more than 19 vitamins and minerals, and research has shown they may help lower LDL cholesterol and promote healthy arteries.
Brazil Nuts: Brazil nuts are an excellent source of organic selenium, a powerful antioxidant-boosting mineral that may help prevent cancer.

Is This More-Dangerous-than-Aspartame Sweetener Hiding in Your Food?

Is This More-Dangerous-than-Aspartame Sweetener Hiding in Your Food?

Story at-a-glance
Neotame, which is based on the aspartame formula, is 13,000 times sweeter than table sugar and about 30 times sweeter than aspartame. It’s approved for use in a wide array of food products, including baked goods. However, contrary to internet rumors, neotame is not allowed in organic foods
Neotame is essentially aspartame plus 3,3-dimethylbutyl, which blocks production of phenylalanine, thereby eliminating the need for a warning on labels directed at people who cannot properly metabolize phenylalanine. 3,3-Dimethylbutyraldehyde is a highly flammable irritant, and carries risk statements for handling including irritating to skin, eyes and respiratory system
Neotame is used as a substitute for molasses in cattle feed. The product is marketed as “Sweetos” in India, and according to a press release, cattle consume more fodder when mixed with Sweetos—a statement that effectively bursts the myth that artificial sweeteners like neotame are excellent diet aids

By Dr. Mercola

One of the more recent toxic additions to our food supply is the artificial sweetener called Neotamei.

In the European Union, where it was approved as a flavor enhancer as of November 2010, it is known by its “E number,” E961ii.

Made by NutraSweet (a former division of Monsanto and the original manufacturer of aspartame), neotame is 13,000 times sweeter than table sugar, and about 30 times sweeter than aspartame.

It’s based on the aspartame formula—despite the fact that 80 percent of all FDA complaints pertain to adverse reactions from aspartame.

Neotame is essentially aspartame plus 3,3-dimethylbutyliii--the presence of which ends up reducing the production of phenylalanine, which allegedly makes it safe for those suffering from phenylketonuria (PKU).

(Hence neotame does not need to bear a PKU warning label like aspartame.)

Unfortunately, it may actually be an even more potent and dangerous neurotoxin, immunotoxin and excitotoxin than aspartame.

Proponents of neotame claim that increased toxicity is of no concern because less of it is needed to achieve the desired effect.

Still, Monsanto's own pre-approval studies of neotame revealed adverse reactions, and there were no independent studies that found neotame to be safe.

On August 16, 2000, the law firm of Hartman & Craven filed comments on the neotame docket pertaining to the lack of safety data submitted in support of neotameiv, stating in part:

“A food additive petition has been submitted to the FDA for the artificial sweetener neotame. In that petition, the sponsor claims the data presented demonstrate that the compound produces no adverse effects at a dose of 1000 mg/kg/day in the rat. The sponsor also claims that the product should be safe for patients with diabetes. A review of the data submitted to the FDA does not support these conclusions.

In fact, no safe human usage level can be determined based on the submitted data. The animal experimental evidence indicates a toxic effect on growth. The clinical evidence raises concerns about glucose control in patients with diabetes.

Searches for an explanation resolving the adverse findings leave no clear acceptable answers that would insure the safety of the public but does stimulate speculation on questions relating to possible liver effects.”

Is Neotame Allowed in Organics?

While some writers have made the claim that neotame is allowed in organic foods, there does not appear to be any supporting evidence for this. Ditto for the rumor that it doesn’t have to be listed on the label. For example, according to a recent article on Sott.netv:

“Neotame was approved by the FDA for general use in July 2002 ... The FDA loosened all labeling requirements for Neotame as part of a large-scale effort to make it a near-ubiquitous artificial sweetener, to be found on the tabletop, in all prepared foods, even in organics. It simply does not have to be included in the ingredient list.”

The Cornucopia Institute wrote a rebuttal to this internet rumor last year, statingvi:

“Organic foods cannot contain synthetic additives, unless these additives have been petitioned and approved to appear on the National List of Approved and Prohibited Substances (7 CFR 205.605). Emily Brown Rosen, Standards Specialist at the USDA’s National Organic Program, writes about neotame: “For organic food, all additives must appear on the National List.” Neotame has never been petitioned or approved for inclusion on the National List, and therefore cannot legally be added to organic foods.

We see no evidence, and see no reason to suspect, that any organic certifying agents would allow organic food manufacturers to violate the federal standards by adding this synthetic sweetener.

Moreover, as a direct food additive, neotame must be listed on the ingredients label, contrary to suggestions that this could be added to food in a stealth-like manner (21 CFR 101.100). We have not seen any evidence to suggest that neotame is being added covertly to organic foods. Not only would organic manufacturers be breaking the law by adding this synthetic sweetener to organic foods, they would also be breaking the law by not including Neotame on the ingredient label.”

Why is Neotame Dangerous?

That said, my recommendation for neotame is similar to that for aspartame, which is: avoid it at all costs if you care about your health. Neotame is like aspartame on steroids, so while you want to avoid both, neotame appears to be more toxic. One way of avoiding all artificial sweeteners is to purchase foods bearing the USDA 100% Organic label. I don’t believe there’s any reason to suspect organic foods will contain neotame.

I’ve previously expounded on the many health dangers of aspartame, and all of those dangers apply equally to neotame. But as if aspartame wasn't bad enough, NutraSweet “improved" the aspartame formula by adding 3,3-dimethylbutyraldehyde, which blocks enzymes that break the peptide bond between aspartic acid and phenylalanine, thereby reducing the availability of phenylalanine. This eliminates the need for a warning on labels directed at people who cannot properly metabolize phenylalanine.

Neotame is also more stable at higher temperatures than aspartame, so it’s approved for use in a wider array of food products, including baked goods.

However, one of the byproducts your body creates by breaking down aspartame is formaldehyde, which is extremely toxic to your health even in very small dosesvii. Furthermore, in a search of, the U.S. National Library of Medicine, which has over 11 million medical citations, neotame fails to include any double-blind scientific studies on toxicity in humans or animals. If neotame was indeed completely safe to ingest, you would think the NutraSweet Company would have published at least one double-blind safety study in the public domain?

Well, they haven't... Why not?

In and of itself, 3,3-dimethylbutyraldehyde is categorized as both highly flammable and an irritant, and carries risk statements for handling including irritating to skin, eyes and respiratory systemviii. Does this sound like something that belongs inside your body?

How Did these Chemicals Get Approved for Human Consumption?

Today, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) could rightfully be accused of being a “subsidiary" of the Monsanto Company. When you realize just how many Monsanto executives and employees who have migrated into positions of power within the FDA and other government agencies, a truly disturbing picture emerges of the foxes guarding the henhouse.

The FDA is packed by pro-business, pro-corporation advocates who often have massive conflicts of interest when it comes to protecting the health of the public. In fact, the revolving door between private industry and government oversight agencies is so well established these days, it has become business as usual to read about scandal, conflicts of interest and blatant pro-industry bias, even when it flies in the face of science or the law.

Aspartame and Neotame—a Dieters WORST Enemy?

One of the most effective marketing and PR tactics for artificial sweeteners has been the claim that they help in the battle against obesity. Unfortunately, they don't. In fact, the research and the epidemiologic data suggest the opposite is true, and that artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and neotame tend to lead to weight gain.

As I've often said, there's more to weight gain or weight loss than mere calorie intake.

One reason for aspartame and neotame's potential to cause weight gain is because phenylalanine and aspartic acid – the two amino acids that make up 90 percent of aspartame and are also present in neotame -- are known to rapidly stimulate the release of insulin and leptin; two hormones that are intricately involved with satiety and fat storage. Insulin and leptin are also the primary hormones that regulate your metabolism. So although you're not ingesting calories in the form of sugar, aspartame and neotame can still raise your insulin and leptin levels. Elevated insulin and leptin levels, in turn, are two of the driving forces behind obesity, diabetes, and a number of our current chronic disease epidemics.

Over time, if your body is exposed to too much leptin, it will become resistant to it, just as your body can become resistant to insulin, and once that happens, your body can no longer "hear" the hormonal messages instructing your body to stop eating, burn fat, and maintain good sensitivity to sweet tastes in your taste buds. So, you remain hungry; you crave sweets, and your body stores more fat... Leptin-resistance also causes an increase in visceral fat, sending you on a vicious cycle of hunger, fat storage and an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and more.

Neotame Added to Cattle Feed to Fatten Livestock...

If you want more proof that artificial sweeteners like neotame are not a dieter’s best friend, consider this: neotame is actually used as a substitute for molasses in cattle feed. The product is marketed as “Sweetos” in India. The makers of Neotame, in partnership with an Indian health care company called EnSigns Health Care Pvt Ltd, introduced the neotame-laced cattle feed sweetener back in October 2010ix. According to the press release:

“Sweetos is an economical substitute for molasses. Sweetos guarantees the masking of unpleasant tastes and odor and improves the palatability of feed. This product will be economical for farmers and manufacturers of cattle feed. It can also be used in mineral mixture,” said Craig Petray, CEO, The NutraSweet Company, a division of Searle, which is a part of Monsanto.

... “We are in talks with the animal husbandry department to reach out to farmers and are trying to tie up with extension services with co-operative societies as well. Cattle consume more fodder when mixed with Sweetos. This product has great export potential as well," said Mohan Nair, chairman, Ensigns Health Care.” [Emphasis mine.]

This brings up several disturbing facts... Not only are some countries now producing animal products that are potentially laced with neotame residues, but they’re clearly stating that the “diet” sweetener increases the amount of fodder consumed by the animals, so how exactly is it supposed to help you lose weight? Loss of appetite control is never a good thing when you’re trying to lose weight, and the statement made about Sweetos fodder speaks volumes about neotame’s impact on your appetite.

How to Report Adverse Reactions to Aspartame or Neotame

Did you know that only a fraction of all adverse food reactions are ever reported to the FDA? This is a problem that only you as the consumer can have an impact upon. In order to truly alert the FDA to a problem with a product they've approved, they must be notified – by as many people as possible who believe they have experienced a side effect. This mean you can take action against the manufacturers of these chemicals that continue to put your optimal health at risk, if you feel you have had a bad reaction to their product.

I urge you, if you believe you have experienced side effects from aspartame or neotame, let the FDA know about it!

Please go to the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator page, find the phone number listed for your state, and report your adverse reaction.

There's no telling just how many reports they might need before considering taking another look at the safety of aspartame or neotame, but the only way to press them is by reporting any and all adverse effects. And in the meantime, do your health and the health of your family a favor and treat all foods and drinks that contain aspartame or neotame as if they were deleterious to your optimal health. Because, in my opinion, they are.

Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl of Arizona told The Daily Caller that the Supreme Court would be allowing an “all powerful government” over the people if it upholds the individual mandate in the health care law. Kyl said the court must “draw a line” in terms of whether or not the federal government can force individuals to purchase a good or service.

“I don’t think anybody can confidently predict how the court is likely to rule and so comments at this point are a little bit premature I would say,” Sen. Kyl told TheDC on Capitol Hill Monday.

“I think there is a very strong argument for it [the individual mandate] being unconstitutional and I think if the court doesn’t draw that line to say that we’re not sure exactly where the line is but this clearly would be over the line in terms of beyond the necessary and proper role of Congress than I don’t see where they ever would draw a line.”

Delayed childbearing: effects on fertility and the outcome of pregnancy.

Balasch J, Gratacós E.


aInstitut Clínic of Gynecology, Obstetrics and Neonatology, Hospital ClínicInstitut d'Investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS), Faculty of Medicine-University of Barcelona bCentro de Investigación en Red para la Investigación de Enfermedades Raras (CIBER-ER), Barcelona, Spain.



The proportion of women who are intentionally delaying pregnancy beyond the age of 35 years has increased greatly in the past few decades because of the clash between the optimal biological period for women to have children with obtaining additional education and building a career. This article highlights the effects of delayed childbearing on fertility and obstetric and perinatal outcome.


Demographic studies indicate that fertility rates are falling in many countries, Europe being the continent with lowest total fertility rate. Female employment and childrearing can be combined when the reduction in work-family conflict is facilitated by state of policy intervention. It has been traditionally accepted that fertility is more related to the age of the female than the male partner but recent literature suggests trends that increased paternal age is also associated with lower fertility, an increase in pregnancy-associated complications and an increase in adverse outcome in the offspring. Delayed childbearing is rarely a conscious choice and women are unaware that, at present, with the exception of egg donation, assisted reproductive technology has no answer yet to age-related decline of female fertility. There is no evidence of a beneficial effect of preimplantation genetic screening for women of advanced maternal age. Concerning perinatal outcomes, apart from the known effects of advanced maternal age on common fetal and obstetric complications, recent evidence increasingly points toward an independent association between maternal (and paternal age) and cerebral palsy, neurocognitive and psychiatric disorders.


The consequences of advancing maternal and paternal age are not only relevant for the risk of natural and assisted conception, but also for the outcome of pregnancy. Although the absolute rate of poor pregnancy outcomes may be low from an individual standpoint, the impact of delaying childbearing from a public health perspective cannot be overestimated and should be in the agenda of public health policies for the years to come.

If you're genetically at risk for Alzheimer's, do this now...

New research tells us that the onset of cognitive decline begins at age 45. Yes, in your fifth decade, not your eighth.

A recent study followed nearly 4,200 participants between 45 and 70. The study lasted for 10 years. It found during that time that reasoning scores decreased by 3.6 % for men between the ages of 45 and 49. For those between 65 and 70, the scores declined by 9.6%. The corresponding figures for women stood at 3.6% and 7.4% respectively. And the older you get, the faster the decline.

Undo years of damage
to your heart, brain,
joints and nerves

Scientists have discovered one simple nutrient can improve your cholesterol, boost circulation, enhance memory and mental sharpness, and even help you sleep better.

This powerful antioxidant is a veritable electron-trapping, free-radical killing machine!

So what is this amazing discovery?

Read more here to find out

This is particularly alarming in light of the Alzheimer's epidemic. The good news is you can stop the decline. All you have to do is exercise, eat right, and take supplements when necessary.

First, comes a study on exercise in genetically susceptible people. The APOE-4 genetic variant is the most established genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease. Washington University Researchers studied 201 men and women aged 45-88. All of them tested normal. Among the 163 subjects who were imaged with a PET scan to measure amyloid deposits, 52 were APOE-4 carriers. The brain substance in these people had higher binding affinity for toxic beta amyloid, as did people who were sedentary regardless of the sedentary group's APOE status. The authors concluded that the genetically susceptible APOE-4 carriers were at higher risk of beta amyloid deposition if they had a sedentary lifestyle!

Finally, a very recent publication actually measured key nutrients in relation to their risk for brain shrinkage. The key nutrients for brain size are vitamins B, C, D, and E and essential fatty acids. The more of these you have in your body, the more likely your mind will remain sharp.

There is one food that's particularly bad for your brain — anything that contains trans fats. Declining brain function is directly related to higher intakes of trans fats, which is very common in our fast and fried food world. This may explain why we have such an epidemic of Alzheimer's.

I don't think you need to have your APOE-4 checked. Why would you? You can't do anything about your genetics. But, you can do plenty about how your genes perform, and give your brain's DNA the best bang for the buck. How? By eating right and exercising — the same message again and again.

Supplements can help. I do take Advanced Memory Formula to help keep my mind sharp. And it works. Don't wait for cognitive decline. PREVENT IT!

Yours for better health and medical freedom,

Fukushima No. 2 reactor radiation level up to 73 sieverts per hour

TOKYO, March 27, Kyodo

The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant said Tuesday that the radiation level inside the crippled No. 2 reactor stood at an extremely high level between 31.1 and 72.9 sieverts per hour, underscoring the existence of radioactive substances from the melted fuel inside the structure.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. measured the radiation level by inserting a long dosimeter into the round-bottomed, flask-shaped primary containment vessel, where fuel is thought to be accumulating at the bottom following the nuclear accident last year.

The highest radiation level was measured at about 4 meters from the bottom and about 1 meter away from the vessel's interior wall.

Bedrock of vaccination theory crumbles as science reveals antibodies not necessary to fight viruses

Bedrock of vaccination theory crumbles as science reveals antibodies not necessary to fight viruses
Tuesday, March 27, 2012 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer


(NaturalNews) While the medical, pharmaceutical, and vaccine industries are busy pushing new vaccines for practically every condition under the sun, a new study published in the journal Immunity completely deconstructs the entire vaccination theory. It turns out that the body's natural immune systems, comprised of both innate and adaptive components, work together to ward off disease without the need for antibody-producing vaccines.

The theory behind vaccines is that they mimic infection by spurring B cells, one of the two major types of white blood cells in the immune system, to produce antibodies as part of the adaptive immune system. It is widely believed that these vaccine-induced antibodies, which are part of the more specific adaptive immune system, teach the immune system how to directly respond to an infection before the body becomes exposed to it.

But the new research highlights the fact that innate immunity plays a significant role in fighting infections, and is perhaps more important than adaptive immunity at preventing or fighting infections. In tests, adaptive immune system antibodies were shown unable to fight infection by themselves, which in essence debunks the theory that vaccine-induced antibodies serve any legitimate function in preventing or fighting off infection.

"Our findings contradict the current view that antibodies are absolutely required to survive infection with viruses like VSV (vesicular stomatitis virus), and establish an unexpected function for B cells as custodians of macrophages in antiviral immunity," said Dr. Uldrich H. von Andrian from Harvard Medical School. "It will be important to further dissect the role of antibodies and interferons in immunity against similar viruses that attack the nervous system, such as rabies, West Nile virus, and Encephalitis."

As explained by Dr. Russell Blaylock in a recent interview with Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, vaccines not only do not work as advertised, but they actually damage the body's innate immunity. Rather than teach the body how to respond to infections, vaccines actually inhibit the immune system's ability to produce TH2-type cytokines, and suppress cellular immunity, which is how the body protects itself against deadly viruses and bacteria.

So once again, the myth that vaccinations serve any sort of legitimate medical purpose has been deconstructed by breakthrough science. Regardless of whether or not the mainstream medical community wants to admit it, pro-vaccine ideology is increasingly finding itself in the dustheap of outmoded pseudoscience.

Eating This Common Food Could Damage Your Kidneys   



Can Genetically Engineered Foods Destroy Your Kidneys?

According to a new study published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology, low doses of the Bt biopesticide CryA1b, and the glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup, kill human kidney cellsv. The Bt biopesticide, which confers insect resistance, and the glyphosate tolerance trait tied to the use of glyphosate herbicides, can be found in nearly all genetically engineered crops grown worldwide.
Researchers tested the effects of Cry1Ab and Cry1Ac proteins as well as their combined effects with the herbicide Roundup. They found that Cry1Ab caused cell death at concentrations of 100 parts per million. Glyphosate at 57.2 parts per million -- 200 times below agricultural use – killed half the cells. According to the Institute of Science in Societyvi:
“This study indicates that Bt toxins are not inert on human cells, and may indeed be toxic ... Bt crops have previously been shown to induce hepatorenal abnormalities ... as well as immune responses that may be responsible for allergies”.
This is in addition to previous evidence showing that the Bt-toxin produced in genetically engineered corn and cotton plants is toxic to humans and mammals and triggers immune system responses... Disturbingly, Bt-toxin has been detected in the blood of 93 percent of pregnant women tested; 80 percent of babies; and 67 percent of non-pregnant women. The fact that it flows through our blood supply, and that is passes through the placenta into fetuses, may help explain the rise in many disorders in the U.S. since Bt crop varieties were first introduced in 1996.

African Zombie Disease Epidemic: Vaccine- Related?

African Zombie Disease Epidemic: Vaccine- Related?


MARCH 25, 2012. We are witnessing an intensified effort, on the part of elite groups, to manage the Matrix.
This involves shaping:
political realities;
social realities;
economic realities;
medical realities;
information realities;
psychological realities;
spiritual realities.
When all is said and done, the attack is on the power and energy of the individual.
One part of my work consists in showing how the evolving medical cartel is really waging chemical warfare on the population, with toxic drugs. At the highest level, behind the curtain, the objective is to grossly weaken, physically and mentally, the body and the brain.
For example--


National Health Insurance Before Supreme Court for Ruling

Last week, guest-hosting The Alex Jones Radio Show, I discussed the case of a young Michigan boy, whose parents have been taken to court three times to force them to submit their child to intensely toxic chemo treatments-despite these facts:

The boy's latest scans reveal no sign of cancer; the drugs that would be forced on him can cause cancer; the drugs have not been approved to treat children.

And I warned: this is what waits for you and your children, up the line, if the Supreme Court allows Obamacare to stand as law.

The "share and care" humanitarian mask will be peeled away. The US Dept. of Health and Human Services will create, as mandated, a complete list of approved treatments for every disease-label under the sun. And everyone in the insurance plan (everyone in America) will be forced to take what the doctor tells them to take.

For a bonus, unapproved treatments will eventually be banned. People and practitioners who try to use alternative treatments will find themselves in trouble.

This is the hidden agenda of Obamacare. This is what it will morph into in the future-unless it is struck down as unconstitutional.

I'm not dreaming or fantasizing. I've been following and reporting on the medical cartel for 30 years, and I know the mindset of these people, these medical bureaucrats, these pharmaceutical string-pullers behind the scenes. Obamacare is right up their alley. It's about control, so it's an answer to their prayers.

What do we know about their mainstream medicine, the hospital-based drug-addled modern version?

On July 26, 2000, the Journal of theAmerican Medical Association published a landmark paper by Dr. Barbara Starfield (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health), "Is US health really the best in the world?" In it, Starfield revealed what many people inside the medical establishment already knew: every year, like clockwork, the medical system was killing huge numbers of people.

Each year in the US, as Dr. Starfield reported, there are:
12,000 deaths from unnecessary surgeries;
7,000 deaths from medication errors in hospitals;
20,000 deaths from other errors in hospitals;
80,000 deaths from infections acquired in hospitals;
106,000 deaths from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines.

The total of medically-caused deaths in the US every year is 225,000.

This makes the medical system the third leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease and cancer.

In the wake of Starfield's devastating report, other facts came to light: 2.1 million people in America, every year, are hospitalized as a result of reactions to FDA-approved medicines. Annually, 36 million serious adverse reactions to those drugs occur.

So, inclusive health coverage for many more Americans under the Obama Plan means these horrendous figures will rise.

This is the dirty secret.

Obama and his allies are promoting a medical system that is the third leading cause of death in America. It's that stark and it's that simple.

The Obama Plan involves appointing an "expert panel" to decide what treatments Americans should be given for what diseases, under the new regime.

Only a certified idiot would assume that, over time, alternative non-mainstream therapies would survive such an ongoing vetting. Hope may spring eternal, but common sense makes it easy to grasp the realities on the ground.

In the long run, alternative therapies will be edged out. Those that remain will be permitted for a narrow range of conditions, or as adjuncts to standard drug treatments and surgery.

Chiropractors and acupuncturists, who are temporarily basking in the notion that Obama "really cares," are in for a very rude awakening. Their careers and practices will be significantly reduced. Not today, not tomorrow, but it will happen.

Doctors, under the Plan, will be telling patients they may not take nutritional supplements while in treatment. This will assume the status of an irreversible edict. In many cases, "while in treatment" means years.

What happens to a person, conscripted into the mandated Plan, who is told by his doctor that he should/must receive a vaccine? Suppose this person says no? What are the consequences? Will he then be labeled a defector? What penalties will he suffer?

Does a diagnosis of cancer imply a patient must submit to chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery? Can these treatments be forced upon him?

Perhaps, in the early days of the Plan, nothing untoward will happen. But then, as time passes, and the system assumes tighter and tighter controls, the hand of government will close around the recalcitrant patient's neck.

"Take this vaccine. Take this chemo drug. If you don't, you're out of the system, and that makes you a criminal, because everyone has to be in the system."

Doctors, who are an integral part of the Plan, will surely be punished if they give unapproved (alternative) treatments to patients.

And in order to make the Plan operate on a day-to-day basis, the records and bookkeeping data of every health-care practitioner in America will be tracked on government computer networks.

Every person in America will have a traceable and trackable medical ID package. Government-issued. There is no way around it. The monitoring apparatus can't work without it.

Orwellian consequences lie up the road in the field of psychiatric practice. In case you hadn't noticed, the invention of "disorders" by committee is the preferred method for "discovering" more and more mental illnesses.

Yet, the science is completely fraudulent. For evidence, consult the many works of psychiatrist Peter Breggin, who has done more than any other person to expose the guts of his own profession. ( ; Breggin establishes that mental disorders are not authoritatively diagnosed by a chemical or biological test. Conclusive tests do not exist. And worse, in this undefined and arbitrary territory, the drugs that follow diagnoses are killers: for example, 300,000 cases of motor brain damage, as a result of the administration of major tranquilizers.

Under the Obama Plan, you can bet your bottom dollar that psychiatric care will eventually become mandatory. A patient suddenly diagnosed with clinical depression or bipolar disease will be told he must take the drugs-and suffer their adverse effects.

Very young children will be given more and more debilitating and dangerous brain drugs.

Under the Obama Plan, it will be very convenient to declare new pandemics every few seasons, because these phony non-epidemics provide an opportunity to herd the sheep into clinics and remind them who is running the show. Go here, take this vaccine; go there, take that drug; the epidemic is endangering the herd, and you must help your brothers and sisters.

These are the figures on the last several "epidemics." They are not yearly; they are grand totals, to date; global totals, except in the case of West Nile (US only):

SARS: 774 deaths.
WEST NILE: 1159 deaths.
BIRD FLU: 262 deaths.
SMALLPOX: (terrorist threat): 0 deaths.
SWINE FLU: 25,000 deaths.

To give perspective, globally, 250 thousand to 500 thousand people die of ordinary flu-like illness every year. Yet this higher death rate accrues no interest as an epidemic. It is only the "teaching (brainwashing) moments" of the phony epidemics that are promoted by health agencies (e.g., CDC and WHO) and their pharmaceutical allies, who rake in billions by manufacturing new vaccines.

Yes, under the Obama Plan, there will be more declared health emergencies, and they will serve to cement the citizen to his new role as eternal patient in the medical march along bleak streets of the future.

Can you perceive the loss of individual freedom implicit in this universal system of health control?
Sources and comments: I'm fully aware that people reading the facts in this essay will be shocked, and they will have doubts. Here are the sources for those facts. Things are not what they seem.

Barbara Starfield, "Is US health really the best in the world?" JAMA, July 26, 2000. Contains statistics on medically-caused deaths in the US.

On January 8, 2001, the LA Times ran a piece by Linda Marsa on the effects of medical drugs in the US. Predictably, the story sank like a stone. It provoked no Congressional hearings, no arrests.

The article described, in a few key paragraphs, a world of trouble. Adverse medical events, from med drugs:

"A 1998 University of Toronto study found that roughly 100,000 Americans die of adverse [medical-drug] reactions each year, and 2.1 million more are hospitalized."

Marsa offered, in her Times article, a quote from an associate professor of medicine at Harvard, Dr. David Bates, an author of a 2000 study on drug effects. The study found that "18 percent of patients complained of drug-related complications," Marsa wrote.

Here is the quote from Dr. Bates: "People often have [drug-caused] symptoms for months, but they're either reluctant to let their doctor know or they weren't sure if they just felt lousy...But these numbers translate to 36 million adverse drug events per year."

To add up the death totals from recent phony epidemics:

SARS-See WHO "Summary of probable SARS cases with onset of illness from 1 November 2002 to 31 July 2003" (based on data as of Dec.31, 2003).

BIRD FLU-See WHO "Confirmed Human Cases of Avian Influenza A (H5N1)" (24 September 2009)

WEST NILE-See CDC, West Nile Virus, Statistics, Surveillance, and Control. Years are reported separately, 1999-2009. I included only US cases because I couldn't find a good source for global cases.

To confirm that every year, between 250,000 and 500,000 people die from ordinary flu, see WHO Fact Sheet No.211, Influenza (Seasonal).

Read Dr. Peter Breggin's classic, Toxic Psychiatry, St. Martin's Press, 1991. Follow Breggin's argument, through several chapters; labeled mental disorders are not based on factual biological evidence; and see p.89-91 for evidence that at least 300,000 people are suffering from brain damage (tardive dyskinesia) as a result of being administered major tranquilizers.

Founded in 1992, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), a minor bureau of the National Institutes of Health (a federal agency), has managed to derail, stall, and divert the progress of real alternative medicine. It has forwarded no breakthroughs. It has bogged itself down in conferences, reports, and committee deliberations. It has fooled a number of so-called alternative-health advocates into believing that the federal government supports non-mainstream health strategies.

Imagine what would happen when healthcare in this country becomes centralized to a much greater degree under the Obama Plan. If this one tiny agency, NCCAM, can now befuddle the alternative field with a collection of inept and self-seeking bureaucrats, gargantuan power held at the top of the federal government will make that diversion look like a raindrop in a hurricane.

The history of the decline of infectious disease is a history of improved sanitation, alleviation of overcrowding, the rise of the middle class, and above all, the betterment of nutrition. This decline in disease occurred before the introduction of antibiotics and widespread vaccination. (See Ivan Illich, Medical Nemesis) Under massively centralized medical care, in an environment where chemically saturated agri-business grows our food in depleted topsoil, there is a greater and greater need for nutritional supplements. But this vital avenue will be narrowed and blocked in the ways I have indicated above.

Last but not least, medical-research fraud continues unabated, an out-of-control rampant crime.

See, for example, "20 Percent Of Cancer Studies Report Conflict of Interest," ScienceDaily (May 13, 2009): "Nearly one-third of cancer research published in high-impact journals disclosed a conflict of interest, according to a new study from researchers at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center..."
Also, from the Boston Globe (, August 15, 2005), "Flaws are found in validating medical studies; many see need to overhaul standards for peer review":

"...after a study that sent reverberations through the medical profession by finding that almost one-third of top research articles have been either contradicted or seriously questioned, some specialists are calling for radical changes in the system...almost one-third of the top papers that appeared in top journals over a 13-year period from 1990 to 2003, had been either contradicted or found to have potentially exaggerated results. All the articles had [prior to publication] undergone vigorous peer review, leading to questions about whether problems should have been caught by reviewers..."

What does this epidemic of cheating and lying in medical research add up to? New dangerous drugs will continue to be approved for public use, by the government. The dangers of the drugs will be hidden in fabricated studies published in prestigious journals.

As the Supreme Court deliberates on whether the individual mandate in Obama's healthplan implies a penalty or tax if people opt out, and as the Court mumbles its way through questions about the Commerce Clause of the Constitution-which was never written to permit Congress to command people to buy health insurance-the real secret is concealed.

This insurance plan will capture more and more of the population in the cross-hairs of chemical warfare. No amount of squirming or arguing is going to change that.
