Dr. Robert Belshe traveled throughout rural Missouri and Illinois last year to discuss flu vaccines during the H1N1 scare. Drug companies Merck & Co. Inc. and GlaxoSmithKline helped pick up the tab.

Belshe, head of Saint Louis University’s Center for Vaccine Development, spoke at more than 20 educational forums on behalf of the drug companies, and he was paid roughly $18,000 in speaker’s fees and travel expenses, according to the companies’ financial disclosures.

“Companies come to me because I have a deep background in vaccines and because of my training,” Belshe said. “And if I’m available, they compensate me for that.”

New Zealand's Health Ministry has told doctors
not to give the Fluvax brand of vaccine to
children under 5.

Australian authorities are investigating the death of a Queensland toddler within 12 hours of her receiving a seasonal influenza vaccination.

New Zealand's Health Ministry has told doctors not to give the Fluvax brand of vaccine to children under 5, after the Australian government ordered a halt in that age group because of an unexpectedly high number of cases of fever-related seizures in Western Australia.

"This study was just routine," said Russian biologist Alexey V. Surov, in what could end up as the understatement of this century. Surov and his colleagues set out to discover if Monsanto's genetically modified (GM) soy, grown on 91% of US soybean fields, leads to problems in growth or reproduction. What he discovered may uproot a multi-billion dollar industry.

After feeding hamsters for two years over three generations, those on the GM diet, and especially the group on the maximum GM soy diet, showed devastating results. By the third generation, most GM soy-fed hamsters lost the ability to have babies. They also suffered slower growth, and a high mortality rate among the pups.

And if this isn't shocking enough, some in the third generation even had hair growing inside their mouths - a phenomenon rarely seen, but apparently more prevalent among hamsters eating GM soy.

1 year after swine flu, Mexicans split on response

By MARK STEVENSON (AP)

MEXICO CITY -- When this city of 8.7 million awoke one year ago to confusing news of a new virus, it sent the world on a wild six-month roller-coaster ride of fear and frantic action.

But after swine flu proved far less lethal than feared, opinion has divided on whether the epidemic was a valuable test-run that left the world better prepared to handle a more lethal avian flu pandemic, or an episode that left the public jaded and weary.

Mexicans are bristling after following initial government recommendations that may have been counterproductive, and question the value of late-arriving vaccines.

But the director of Mexico's National Center for Epidemiology and Disease Control insists the nation -- and the world -- are better prepared for another, more deadly flu outbreak.

HIV Tests Are Not Tests

| | Comments (1)

This is guest blogger Cal Crilly again. He's writing from Australia and he has the Aids 'epidemic' figured out in a way that might raise a few eyebrows.

Cal_Crilly.jpg

Cal Crilly recently wrote an article on Aids, endogenous retroviruses and methylation which was published just in time for April 23 - Rethinking Aids day. Here is a link.

April 23 - Day for Rethinking Aids

And here comes an article with many links and references to follow up - about the sham tests that pass for a justification to label a person "HIV Positive" or simply POZ, and much more.

What those recommending the treatment don't say (or don't know?) is that most people who are treated for Aids these days die from the 'side effects' of those anti-retroviral drugs (Cancer, heart disease, liver failure) rather than from any of the so-called Aids defining diseases.

OK - here's Cal Crilly again.

I would like to thank Art Kab who is electrosensitive and who campaigns for a safer environment - less polluted by technological electromagnetic waves, who found this important interview. This is an interview with Barrie Trower, a retired British military intelligence scientist, who for years worked in microwave and stealth warfare.

The talk is about the physical dangers of electromagnetic radiation as it is emitted by our mobile phones and the wireless phones in homes, as well as the fairly more recent wireless computer networks and link-ups of various devices in homes - WIFI.

Here is what Art adds by way of introduction:

I would like to confirm that France is really actually taking all their WiFi systems out of their schools. Does anyone actually have confirmation of this?
BT: Uhm...I saw quite a large delegation from France a few years ago, and not just down to me, but they obviously took heed of what I said and went off and checked a few things, but, we know now in France, I'll have it published, that they are pulling wi fi out of every single French school, on health grounds.

If this is indeed true, it is an important statement with regards to the dangers imposed by WiFi systems.

You can listen to the interview here and you can also read the transcript below.

This is first hand evidence by someone who has worked in the field of microwaves and who decided to blow the whistle to try and make the technology more human-friendly ...

April 23 - Day for Rethinking Aids

|

It is Rethinking Aids Day - 23 April 2010.


rethinkingaidsdayS.jpg

The official story on Aids remains unchangingly disastrous.

We have tests that don't test for a virus (but for some rather unspecific stress proteins).

We have "hit them early and hard" treatment with a highly toxic drug cocktail, no prevention other than condoms and circumcision.

We have "Aids" in Africa where malaria, malnutrition and intestinal infections make the Aids test read positive more often than not.

Our Aids research practically omits nutrition, it omits clean water and it omits drugs (except for "dirty needles") as a possible causative factor.

Cures could be found out but known solutions are not applied, unless they are wildly profitable for the pharmaceutical industry.

Against this background, I would like to propose for your reading the findings of a friend who has a completely different view of the epidemic and what could be done about it with comparatively simple means - nutrients and better foods.

Here is what Cal Crilly's restless mind has worked out over these last few weeks just in time for Rethinking Aids Day 2010 ...

Thirty-eight years after DDT was banned, Americans still consume trace amounts of the infamous insecticide every day, along with more than 20 other banned chemicals.

In a photograph from a 1947 newspaper advertisement, a smiling mother leans over her baby's crib. The wall behind her is decorated with rows of flowers and Disney characters. Above the photo, a headline reads "Protect Your Children From Disease Carrying Insects."


201004231206.jpg

The ad, for wallpaper impregnated with DDT, captures a moment of historical ignorance, before the infamous insecticide nearly wiped out many birds and turned up inside the bodies of virtually everyone on Earth.

The story of DDT teaches a lesson about the past. But experts say it also provides a glimpse into the future.

HPV Vaccine Kills 16-Year-Old Girl Lawsuit Alleges

(PRWEB) April 21, 2010 -- A lawsuit filed in the U.S. Federal Court of Claims this week alleges that the HPV vaccine Gardasil caused the death of a 16-year-old Missouri girl. Gardasil is a vaccine used to prevent the transmission of a sexually transmitted disease called human papillomavirus (HPV). Controversy regarding the safety of Gardasil surrounded the vaccine since its FDA approval in 2006 and continues to be the subject of intense debate.

Safety and efficacy of Gardasil in question

As on December 31, 2008 there were 12,424 reports of injuries related to Gardasil in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) (1). These reports are used by the FDA to monitor the safety of vaccines and it is well known that injuries are underreported (1). Of note, 68% of the 12,424 reports of injury where written employees of Merck (1). While there is risk of injury with every drug, including vaccines, at least one report questions whether or not Gardasil provides enough protection to counterbalance the risk of injury.
