The healthy function of your lymphatic system is required for an optimal immune response. Millions of Americans struggle with a sluggish and stagnant lymph system. This is because your lymph system, in addition to its immune-related chores is also involved with clearing trash and the absorption and transport of fat. The speed with which you mount an immune response, can be drastically impaired by poor lymph function. It is worthwhile to understand how well your own lymph system is working.

During the course of infection, cells that have identified an invader—such as the dendritic cells of your front line immune troops—must migrate into your lymphatic system and present their findings to a sub-group of lymphocytes called T Helper cells that are residing within lymph tissue.

This past year everyone saw with their own two eyes that our government’s public health officials had no problem using fear to influence Americans to be guinea pigs for an experimental H1N1 vaccine. It was equally obvious that the government cried wolf and has egg on its face, as their predicted pandemic never happened (and not because of an effective vaccine campaign) Where are they now when it becomes obvious that a lack of vitamin D drastically impairs the immune response to fight any flu – especially considering a majority of Americans are lacking in the nutrient? Where is their public health message that Americans need to be adequate in vitamin D so as to help reduce the chance of getting any flu in any flu season?

A delegation of politicians and community activists gathered on August 7 in La Leonesa, a small farm town in Argentina, to hear Dr. Andres Carrasco speak about a study linking a popular herbicide to birth defects in Argentina's agricultural areas.

But the presentation never happened. A mob of about 100 people attacked the delegation before they could reach the local school where the talk was to be held.

Dr. Carrasco and a colleague locked themselves in a car as the mob yelled threats and beat on the vehicle for two hours. One delegate was hit in the spine and has since suffered lower-body paralysis. Another person was treated for blows to the head. A former provincial human rights official was hit in the face and knocked unconscious.

(NaturalNews) Apparently drug companies are no longer satisfied with a tiered vaccine schedule, and would rather have babies receive their shots all at the same time in order to ensure full compliance. A recent announcement by the U.K. Department of Health insists that babies should receive a six-in-one "super-vaccination" when they turn age one, for the primary purpose of increasing vaccination rates.

Normally, U.K. babies receive their meningitis shots separate from other shots, with about a month of buffer time in between. But officials are now telling general practitioners (GPs) to give three measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines, as well as two meningitis vaccines and a pneumonia vaccine, all at the same time. And they claim that there is no health risk involved with babies getting this barrage of vaccines.

Ties Between Big Pharma and THL Draw Complaints
17 November 2010

The Chancellor of Justice has received 14 complaints regarding ties between GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the manufacturer of the swine flu vaccine, and the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL).

The Chancellor has been asked to assess if the THL was biased when it recommended that Finland purchase the H1N1 vaccine from GSK, according to YLE current affairs TV programme Ajankohtainen kakkonen. The institute had received significant research grants from the pharma giant.

The State, November 22, 2010

By Renee Dudley

CHARLESTON — An influential U.S. senator is checking up on South Carolina doctors who have billed millions of dollars in prescriptions to the financially struggling, taxpayer-funded Medicaid program.

U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley, an Iowa Republican, requested data from each state this year listing which doctors write the most prescriptions for eight common drugs covered by Medicaid, the federal health program for the poor. The reports were intended to “ensure that taxpayer dollars are appropriately spent,” Grassley wrote in a letter to state officials.

The Palmetto State’s report, released to The (Charleston) Post and Courier, identifies a handful of doctors who have written thousands of prescriptions for painkillers and anti-psychotics over the past two years. While many of the claims are legitimate, state Department of Health and Human Services officials confirmed this week that some doctors on the list are under investigation for fraud.

Why Plants Are (Usually) Better Than Drugs

Huffington Post
Dr. Andrew Weil
Founder and director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine
November 19, 2010


I have always been fascinated by the difference between plants and the drugs that are isolated from them. This goes back to my student days at Harvard in the 1960s, where I received my undergraduate degree in botany, and then went on to medical school. It's rare -- too rare, I have to say -- for botanists to become doctors. The experience gave me a unique perspective on health and medicine.

For four decades, I've been skeptical of a prevailing belief in Western medicine: when a plant shows bioactivity in humans, we must attribute that effect to a single, predominant compound in the plant. We label that the "active principle," isolate it, synthesize it, and make a pharmaceutical out of it. Then, typically, we forget about the plant. We don't study any of the other compounds in it or their complex interactions.

Dr Johann Georg Schnitzer, a German doctor who is into natural health options rather than just the treatment of disease, has expressed what many advocates of good nutrition and prevention know all too well. The current health care system, and the US is not an exception here, is chasing the wrong incentives.

johann_schnitzer.gif

Having profit as a goal is quite natural as it is a widespread economic "reality", but in the case of healthcare, if profit means more sick people bring more profit, that economic constraint pushes us in the wrong direction. The result is that healthcare world wide has become just too expensive to pay for, even for the economies of economic powerhouses like the US and other "developed" countries.

Instead of going to the root of the problem, we try to ration health care, we try to force pharmaceutical companies to lower the prices of their products, we try to force everyone to pay into an "insurance" fund so as to make the exaggerated costs halfway bearable. But our patchwork efforts are not going to solve the problem of deteriorating health and rising costs. The economic interests that need our illnesses for their survival are just too powerful.

Dr Schnitzer's message gives us some of the necessary background:

Diseases of civilization in a population do not increase in linear progression, they grow in relatively sudden jumps. The reasons for this are

a) that there is a time factor. The incubation time that passes from the moment of a change of diet from natural to refined foods until the appearance of nutrition-related diseases of civilization has been researched by T. L. Cleave and G. D. Campbell. It is approximately 20 years. The only early warning sign is tooth decay.

b) that health is a great biological capital which cannot be entirely squandered in a single generation. Three generations are necessary for that. The first generation will merely suffer from obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and the illnesses that arise as a consequence of it. The second generation is already born with some faults, their teeth are out of alignment, there are skeletal deformations and accelerated growth (stature is taller and too thin) and higher susceptibility to chronic infectious illnesses. The third generation is increasingly handicapped, functional difficulties (impaired hearing, difficulties writing, weak concentration and learning ability) abound, there is an increasing inability to procreate.

c) that the organism's regulatory and immune systems are keeping normal functionality going to the maximum extent possible, even under difficult circumstances. When that maximal resilience is breached, we see the sudden appearance, the sudden spread of yet another one of the chronic and degenerative diseases of civilization.

d) that the application of wrong - merely symptomatically acting - counter-measures is heavily promoted, the current 'disease system' is looking for ever new possibilities to increase its business (such as ever larger numbers and ever earlier vaccinations and other "treatments") and the negative consequences of this (they are called "side effects") result in further sudden deterioration of general health.

e) that the market for non natural and at times species-incompatible nutrition and its promotion through the media is ever increasing and works towards a worldwide monopolization of the food supply.

Such a breakdown for the worse has now happened in mental capacity in the US (and there is no hope that we will escape the same fate here in Europe).


Dr Schnitzer's message to President Obama shows how the US health system might be diverted from its current ruinous course ...

Vaccine Did Not Eradicate Poliomyelitis

|


We are told that vaccines eradicated poliomyelitis in the 1950s and this story is often cited as proof of the success of vaccines. After all, if a scourge like polio can be eradicated by vaccinating whole populations, the practice of injecting viral material into the blood stream to promote immunity clearly works - or does it?

Lack of effectiveness and dangers of childhood vaccinations are discussed in this article by Heidi Stevenson.

Proof of Childhood Vaccinations' Lack of Effectiveness and Dangers

That article links an interesting compilation of statistics on common illnesses that are said to have been eradicated by vaccines.

Immunization Graphs: Natural Infectious Disease Declines; Immunization Effectiveness; and Immunization Dangers

Now with regard to the polio vaccine, a friend recently said:

"Contrary to popular medical spun tales, Polio wasn't eradicated in the 1950's. On the contrary the Salk & Sabin vaccine, laced with SV40 diseased Green Monkey kidney virus, merely created a new subset of Poliomyelitis known as Aseptic Meningitis ... in addition to a cats cradle of hitherto unknown neuro-degenerative disorders & rare forms of cancer."

An article he linked gives an idea of the number of cases involved:

‎'These days, when a vaccinee develops poliomyelitis, it may not be called poliomyelitis; instead, it may be called viral or aseptic meningitis, ascending paralysis (Guillain-Barre syndrome), cerebral palsy (over 75 per cent of cases are not diagnosed at birth but after six months) or other such names. There are 30,000 to 50,000 cases of aseptic meningitis every year in the United States. Considering that the vast majority (99 per cent) of the reported cases in the pre-vaccine era were non-paralytic and would have corresponded to aseptic or aviral meningitis, then vaccination has actually increased the incidence of poliomyelitis. In the pre-vaccine era, such high numbers only occurred in some epidemics. Now, such numbers occur every year, year by year.'

In the pharmaceutical industry’s rush to get drugs to market, safety usually comes last. And the public suffers.

November 19, 2010 | In the pharmaceutical industry’s rush to get drugs to market, safety usually comes last. Long studies to truly assess a drug's risks just delay profits after all -- and if problems do emerge after medication hits the market, settlements are usually less than profits. Remember, Vioxx still made money.

The following drugs are so plagued with safety problems, it is a wonder they’re on the market at all. It's a testament to Big Pharma's greed and our poor regulatory processes that they are.
