Prepare yourself for more water shortages, floods, droughts, and a sharp decline in food supplies in the United States when U.S. Senate Bill 1807 & U.S. House Bill 3445, that were introduced on July 17, 2007, are voted into law. These identical bills, titled: “Weather Mitigation Research and Development Policy Authorization Act of 2007”, are moving forward at a rapid rate in Committees on Commerce, Science and Transportation. Please note that these bills were not referred to Committees on Agriculture, Natural Resources, the Environmental Protection Agency, or Forestry, and that you were not invited to debate the merits of these bills by your elected representatives.

In January this year we reported about an institution that has been administering electric shock to kids that are unruly or otherwise difficult to control - the Massachusetts-based organization called the Judge Rotenberg Educational Center. At the time, although a court said the violent treatments in use in the institution should be phased out, the judge was in no hurry to enforce that decision, in effect allowing 30 months time. In June 2009, according to the court, new students should no longer be getting electric shocks but for those already so treated, the torturous regime could be continued.

MotherJones magazine published an article - School of Shock - asking "How many times do you have to zap a child before it's torture?"

Opponents of the shock treatment administered to children as a part of their 'education' want the torture to end immediately. If you agree, you can add your voice. It is rather simple.

Vince Boehm says:

The JRC pursues a course of aversive therapy that uses electrodes attached to a child's body, giving "bee sting" jolts of electricity for such infractions as mouthing off, slouching, nagging, swearing and failure to maintain a neat appearance. They use other forms of aversion therapy as well.

Some of you may know this. The use of electric shocks in an attempt to modify behavior in a certain class of sex crime has been tried for at least 30 years with nil success. Where challenged (10 states), this method has been largely been disallowed as "cruel and unusual punishment". To do this sort of thing to a child who may have the mental age of 3 or 4 (as cited in a court document I read about this place) is beyond human comprehension.

I am asking you to sign on to this open letter to the American Psychological Association to act in accordance with its 'Resolution Against Ture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, and Degrading Treatment or Punishment' and take a stand against The Judge Rotenberg Educational Center. This place must be shut down.

To sign on to this appeal, please send an e-mail to Nancy Weiss or Derrick Jeffries.

Orthomolecular Medicine News Service
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 30, 2007

(OMNS October 30, 2007) The US Recommended Daily Allowance/Daily Reference Intakes are too low and most should be raised immediately, says an independent panel of physicians, academics and researchers. In a statement this week, the Independent Vitamin Safety Review Panel said: "Government-sponsored nutrient recommendations, such as the US RDA/DRIs, are not keeping pace with recent progress in nutrition research. While current official recommendations for vitamin A, iron, calcium, and some other nutrients are generally adequate, the public has been asked to consume far too little of many other key nutrients. Inadequate intake, and inadequate standards to judge intake, have resulted in widespread nutrient inadequacy, chronic disease, and an undernourished but overweight population." Citing a large number of physician reports and clinical studies, the IVSRP called for substantial increases in daily intake of the B-vitamins, vitamins C, D and E, and the minerals selenium, zin! c, magnesium and chromium. "Raising the RDA/DRI will save lives and improve health," the Panel said. "Clinical and sub-clinical nutrient deficiencies are among the main causes of our society's greatest healthcare problems. Cancer, cardiovascular disease, mental illness, and other diseases are caused or aggravated by poor nutrient intake. The good news is that scientific evidence shows that adequately high consumption of nutrients helps prevent these diseases."

(NewsTarget) On September 9th, 2007 several planes hired by the State of California Food and Agricultural Department (CDFA) flying at an altitude of approximately 500ft sprayed the untested biochemical, CheckMate®OLR-F, on over 30,000 citizens in Monterey and other surrounding cities in California. This occurred without the permission of the citizens. The spraying continued for three nights from approximately 8pm to 5am. About 1,500 pounds of biochemical were dumped on the cities. Many citizens did not even know what was happening when the planes were buzzing overhead.

Lipsticks contain lead, consumer group says

ATLANTA (Reuters) - Lipsticks tested by a U.S. consumer rights group found that more than half contained lead and some popular brands including Cover Girl, L'Oreal and Christian Dior had more lead than others, the group said on Thursday.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics said tests on 33 brand-name red lipsticks by the Bodycote Testing Group in Santa Fe Spring, California, found that 61 percent had detectable lead levels of 0.03 to 0.65 parts per million (ppm).

Lipstick, like candy, is ingested. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a coalition of public health, environmental and women's groups, said the FDA has not set a limit for lead in lipstick.

They’re watching you right now.

They counted every beer you drank during last night’s Red Sox [team stats] game.

They see you sneaking out to the garage for a smoke.

They know if you’ve got a gun, and where you keep it.

They’re your kids, and they’re the National Security Agency of the Nanny State.

I found this out after my 13-year-old daughter’s annual checkup. Her pediatrician grilled her about alcohol and drug abuse.

Not my daughter’s boozing. Mine.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer
October 7, 2007

Congressional investigators will hammer the Environmental Protection Agency in a soon-to-be-released report for its flawed examination and cleanup of hundreds of factories that once processed asbestos-contaminated vermiculite into insulation.

But public health specialists say the investigation ignores an even greater failure: the EPA’s refusal to adequately warn millions of homeowners that they may be exposed to cancer-causing asbestos in that insulation.

The Government Accountability Office conducted the investigation for Congress. The report, expected to be made public later this month, will say that the EPA’s examination of sites in Spokane, Portland and 264 other communities that processed ore from Libby, Mont., used outdated criteria and underestimated or completely missed the dangers to people who worked there or lived nearby.

DANGER LURKING IN FLU SHOTS!

It wasn’t until I went to my local grocery store (name withheld) recently that I realized how low pharmaceutical companies would stoop to propagandize the public with lies. While I was at the checkout counter a young woman bagging my groceries looked at me, smiled, and said: “Have you had the flu shot yet.” I was stunned.

I looked at her and asked: “Is your store management instructing you to ask everyone this?” She said ‘no’ but employees were encouraged to ask customers if they were interested in receiving the shot. I looked at this young woman with pity in my eyes and said: “There’s no way I would put that poison into my body.”

F.D.A. INEPTITUDE COST MANY LIVES

On September 27, 2007 the president signed the hotly debated FDA “reform” legislation into law, which does nothing but give the highly dysfunctional FDA management team more power. FDA ineptitude is costing Americans dearly. The FDA does not need more power or money, it needs management that truly has the health and well-being of consumers as its top priority. FDA crimes of commission and omission are becoming more evident with every passing day. Here are some of the top recent headlines.

FDA Condones Unsafe Human Experiments

The New York Times reports that the FDA fails to ensure the safety of millions of people who participate in experimental clinical trials. In fact, the government doesn’t even have any idea how many of these experiments are taking place. The FDA haphazardly follows up on less than 1%, and when problems are found little or nothing is done.
