Outbreaks Were Not Preventable, Officials Say

The Food and Drug Administration has known for years about contamination problems at a Georgia peanut butter plant and on California spinach farms that led to disease outbreaks that killed three people, sickened hundreds, and forced one of the biggest product recalls in U.S. history, documents and interviews show.

Overwhelmed by huge growth in the number of food processors and imports, however, the agency took only limited steps to address the problems and relied on producers to police themselves, according to agency documents.

Congressional critics and consumer advocates said both episodes show that the agency is incapable of adequately protecting the safety of the food supply.

Homes and schools could be banned from being built near power lines

A secret report has raised fresh fears of a link between power lines and cancer.

The confidential study, obtained by the Evening Standard, urges ministers to consider banning the building of homes and schools close to overhead high-voltage power cables because of possible health risks.

It says a ban is the best way to reduce significantly exposure to electromagnetic fields from the electricity grid system.

Late comedian Bill Hicks said that “Watching television is like taking black spray paint to your third eye.” With the onslaught of Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) advertising, watching television has now become suicide in slow motion. If you don’t know what DTC advertising is then you are likely a victim.

DTC advertising is a commercial that begins by highlighting some enormous biological problem like indigestion, sneezing or watery eyes. It ends by telling you about the miracle drug that will cure such insurmountable illness. The pharmaceutical industry states that DTC advertising is an important vehicle for conveying information to patients and medical doctors.[1] In reality, DTC advertising is a way of profiteering by converting healthy people into patients.

Bees have been going missing by the millions, leaving their hives never to come back, in what the experts have termed "Colony Collapse Disorder". Speculation is rife over what may be the cause of the trouble. Toxins from genetically modified crops and pesticides are prime suspects, but the question has also been raised, whether electromagnetic radiation - such as the mobile phone signals that cover most of the globe by now - may be to blame.

This latter hypothesis seems to get more credence from a report of three years ago from Germany, which Art Kab has translated into English.

The original in German can be found on the site of Eurotinnitus - as a PDF. Here is the translation into English:

Dr. Stephen Hsu, a researcher in the School of Dentistry, studied an animal model for type I diabetes and primary Sjogren's Syndrome, which damages the glands that produce tears and saliva and found significantly less salivary gland damage in a group treated with green tea extract, suggesting a reduction of the Sjogren's symptom commonly referred to as dry mouth.

Green tea may help protect against autoimmune disease, Medical College of Georgia researchers say.

Researchers studied an animal model for type I diabetes and primary Sjogren's Syndrome, which damages the glands that produce tears and saliva.

Here are photographs of Cell Phone Transmission Towers camouflaged as natural trees which are springing up all over... birds seem to avoid them, however! http://waynesword.palomar.edu/faketree.htm

APRIL 20, 2007. REPRINTED FROM MAY 23, 2005, with new material added, and small edits made in the original text, to straighten out minor transcription errors.

As you read this, you’ll notice possible echoes of the Virginia Tech mayhem.

For the past two years, I've been receiving communications from a practicing American psychiatrist, who has an office in the southeastern US. He sees patients privately. Increasingly, this man has been expressing doubts about the drugs he has been prescribing.

Now, he has blown the lid off his own profession, and it appears he is ready to switch careers or become an alternative health practitioner.

Here is an excerpt from our recent conversation. (New material is added at the end.)

INTRODUCTION
Although the devastation wrought at Virginia Tech last Monday does not even begin to rank with what has happened in Iraq, it does have a more personal impact for many Americans. I'm taking this opportunity to point out some very significant facts about the Virginia murders.

Below, you'll find my latest articles on the subject. I'm NOT emailing everything I'm writing about Virginia Tech. If you want to follow the whole thread, as it emerges, go to my site:

Hormone replacement therapy may have caused the deaths of more than 1,000 women in the UK from ovarian cancer since 1991, scientists reveal today.

HRT has been used by millions of women to alleviate the symptoms of menopause or - in some cases - because they hope it will help them remain youthful and active for longer.

But today's authoritative study by Professor Valerie Beral and colleagues from Oxford University reveals that those who take HRT for five years or more are risking death from a particularly lethal form of cancer. The research, published online by the Lancet medical journal today, will not be the last straw for HRT, but it may well reduce the numbers willing to take the risk of hormone treatment.

Science Daily — It may seem improbable, but one of the best allies against sunburn and skin cancer could be growing in your own back yard.

Researchers at the Ohio State University Medical Center say a topical compound made of black raspberries significantly slows the growth of squamous cell carcinomas of the skin in mice exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation, the most dangerous light in the solar spectrum.

“In terms of shutting down the inflammatory response, we’ve never seen anything like it,” says Dr. Anne VanBuskirk, an assistant professor of surgery in Ohio State’s College of Medicine and senior author of the study, presented today at the annual meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research.
