"Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive." -- C.S. Lewis

Psychiatry's "shock doctrine" is quite literally electroshock, and its latest victims are - I'm not kidding - young children.

On January 25, 2009, the Herald Sun, based in Melbourne, Australia, reported, "Children younger than four who are considered mentally disturbed are being treated with controversial electric shock treatment." In Australia, the use of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is increasing, and the Herald Sun's report on "Child Shock Therapy" stated that last year "statistics record 203 ECT treatments on children younger than 14 -- including 55 aged four and younger."

201101141259.jpg A whistleblower lawsuit filed in 2002 has been unsealed and reveals that nearly two dozen drugmakers have been accused of selling unapproved prescription meds for years. Of course, such charges must still be proven, but the US Department of Justice did get involved in pursuing three other companies - Forest Laboratories (read here), Schwarz Pharma and Eon Laboratories - originally named in the lawsuit and reached settlements.

What will happen from here is unclear. But for one other company, the DOJ has declined to intervene, or join, the lawsuit in pursuit of the rest of the drugmakers, including Abbott Laboratories, Actavis, Mylan Laboratories, Shire Pharmaceuticals, Watson Pharmaceuticals and Teva Laboratories. Nonetheless, the lawsuit offers some disturbing details in so far as that unapproved meds have apparently been available for years and, in some cases, the FDA failed to do anything to halt the practice.

The American Dream

Who knows more about health - the mainstream media or those that believe in "conspiracy theories"? Well, the truth is that time after time after time those in the "alternative media" and those who believe in "conspiracy theories" have been proven to be far ahead of those in the mainstream media when it comes to matters of health. Sadly, the mainstream media receives so much funding and so many advertising dollars from the pharmaceutical industry, the medical industry, the big chemical companies and the health insurance industry that they are extremely cautious to report any information that would be harmful to any of them. So for years, the mainstream media generally refused to talk about the dangers posed by things such as fluoride, aspartame, prescription drugs, genetically modified crops and cell phones. But now the alternative media has been making so much noise about many of these health issues for so long that the mainstream media has been forced to acknowledge that some of these "conspiracy theories" about health are actually true.

Flu jab: Up to a million children have been given vaccines containing mercury

UP to a million under-fives have been inoculated against the flu virus with a controversial vaccine containing poisonous mercury.

Pandemrix has been given to almost a quarter of all healthy babies and young children as well as thousands of older children with health problems.

Inquiries by the Sunday Express reveal it contains a preservative made with a form of mercury that was phased out of childhood vaccines in 2004 after fears about its safety.

If you harbored romantic notions that an Obama FDA would be less controlled by the pharmaceutical industry than a Bush FDA, think again. The case of Avandia proves once again that FDA will sacrifice the health of the American people to defend the economic interests of its favored regulatees, the big drug companies.

In an April 2, 1999 internal memo to his superiors FDA medical reviewer Dr. Robert I. Misbin objected to FDA approval of the GlaxoSmithKline Type 2 diabetes drug Avandia. He expressed concerns “about deleterious long term effects on the heart” from the drug. His criticisms were rejected by the agency’s political appointees. On May 25, 1999, FDA approved the drug for marketing without referencing the heart risks.

For identifying the heart risks, Dr. Misbin was not complimented at FDA. Far from it, he was ostracized and subjected to severe criticism and review by his superiors. He was told, flatly, by one of them that he just did not get it, that FDA was there to serve the industry. In a later interview, Misbin (now deceased) said: “One of my superiors said something to me that I have never forgotten, that we have to maintain good relations with the drug companies because they are our customers.”

Yes, that Donald Rumsfeld, the "knowns and unknowns" guy who remarkably executed some of the worst decisions in American foreign policy and got a medal for it. I have been reading up on this strange chapter in the history of Donald Rumsfeld and have learned two things. One, the chemical additive aspartame is very potentially a cancer and brain tumor-causing substance that has no place in our food. And two, the reasons and means by which Rumsfeld helped get it approved are nefarious at best, criminal at worst. And by the way, that medal that Rumsfeld got back in 2004 was the Presidential Medal of Freedom, also awarded to Tommy Franks, George Tenet and that charming warrior L. Paul Bremer. Evidently, "Freedom" means the right to use your powerful friends in Washington to approve your company's dangerous substance for human consumption and make a fat bonus on the way out the door. So how did aspartame become legal? And more importantly, if it had been rejected multiple times over fears of brain tumors and cancer, why?

Magnesium: The Spark of Life

Magnesium, just like magnetite and manganese, owes its name to the greek word Magnesia, a place name derived from the tribal people known as Magnetes. Physicians and therapists have paid scant attention to this crucial element which is one of the most important minerals for all living organisms. Magnesium has a relaxing, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effect on our organism. It is critical for metabolic processes, cell growth and reproduction and is involved in hundreds of enzyme processes affecting every aspect of life. It is not only essential for maintaining good health, but also for detoxification and the treatment of numerous diseases.

According to a new study out of the University of Illinois, Urbana, and published in January's Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, several bumblebee species that were previously widespread are in peril (via Reuters):

[Researchers] documented a 96 percent decline in the numbers of the four species, and said their range had shrunk by as much as 87 percent. As with honeybees, a pathogen is partly involved, but the researchers also found evidence of inbreeding caused by habitat loss.

"We provide incontrovertible evidence that multiple Bombus species have experienced sharp population declines at the national level," the researchers reported ... calling the findings "alarming."

Three months ago, GlaxoSmithKline agreed to pay $750 million fine to settle disturbing charges concerning numerous production problems that took place several years ago at a now-shuttered facility in Cidra, Puerto Rico - contaminated meds, mislabeled packaging and incorrect dosages involving various prescription meds. The fine, which includes a $150 million criminal penalty, was the result of a whistleblower lawsuit brought by Cheryl Eckard, a former global quality assurance manager (you can read the lawsuit and other documents here).

Here we go again. Swine Flu Terror UK is currently in full swing with an epidemic shortly to occur, announces the UK mainstream media. Get yourselves vaccinated immediately because if you don't you may very well DIE, they trumpet. In all these current media reports, it invariably states, “It is not known how many of these cases are swine flu." But hey, never let the facts get in the way of a good story though, eh?

Cynics have speculated that the UK government has massive stocks of flu vaccine to shift and what with the electorate (especially medical professionals) deeply reluctant to get jabbed with the vaccine for the very best of educated reasons, a media campaign has been mounted to sensationalise dodgy flu statistics in order to shift the product. Could they be right?

The UK Department of Health mantra relates that there are approximately 12,000 deaths from influenza every year. In the United States, flu deaths are reported from a low of about 3,300 deaths to a high of 49,000 per year. Very few deaths are ever proven to have been caused by flu alone.

What we write today is in no way intended to minimise the loss of life tragedy through flu, but simply an attempt to put the media reports into context. More old people have died from hypothermia in recent winters than the flu - probably due to impossibly high heating bills. It is a great shame that there is not more focus on this rather than flu deaths.
