“Merck suspends lobbying for vaccine,” blazes the AP (Associated Propagandaess) “news” headline. Interesting that this was filed under ‘Business’ rather than ‘Health’ news.

The recent Merck action was noted as due to “bowing to pressure from parents and medical groups” by AP.

Remember that misdirection is key to any magic trick. Interesting also that “trick” is terminology used to describe the relationship between a whore and her paid client.

PHOENIX, Feb. 23 — X-ray vision has come to the airport checkpoint here, courtesy of federal aviation security officials who have installed a new device that peeks underneath passengers’ clothing to search for guns, bombs or liquid explosives.

The new body scanning machine, which went into use on Friday at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and will be tested later at airports in Los Angeles and New York, will screen only volunteers, at least initially. Transportation Security Administration officials want to make sure the machine is reliable and fast enough to replace the traditional pat-down — and that it does not provoke too many protests.

Dawn of the GM babies?

Scientists will be able to carry out genetic experiments on human embryos for the first time under controversial Government plans.

Ministers have given the green light to research that some doctors warn raises the disturbing prospect of "genetically modified babies".

Proposed legislation says researchers would be allowed to alter the genetic blueprint of an embryo up to two weeks old. Ethical campaigners fear this could herald an era of eugenics in which couples would engineer their children to be as perfect as possible.

Critics predicted the public would be "horrified" by any steps towards creating GM babies.

Four-year old Rebecca Riley' was a casualty of psychiatric "treatment. Her death from a combination of prescribed toxic psychotropic drugs is a demonstration of medicine derailed from its legitimate therapeutic mission.

http://ahrp.blogspot.com/2007/02/4-year-old-rebecca-riley-casualty-of.html

The public was shocked that when still a toddler--aged 28 months--Rebecca was "diagnosed" with both bipolar disorder and ADHD by a board certified psychiatrist.

Women's lives are being put at risk because drug companies don't include them in drugs trials. This means potential side-effects are not exposed until the drugs hit the shelves, and by then it's too late, says Dr ANITA HOLDCROFT, a consultant anaesthetist at Imperial College London and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

She recently voiced her concerns in the Journal Of The Royal Society Of Medicine.

For too long there has been a dangerous sex divide in the world of medicine. While we talk about the achievements of feminism, there is one significant area where women are still second-class citizens - and it puts thousands of women's lives at risk.

Children's TV 'is linked to cancer, autism, dementia'

Children's TV 'is linked to cancer, autism, dementia'

* Study shows ill-effects of TV more wide-ranging than initially thought
* Quantity of TV and age of children viewing key elements of study
* Time in front of computer screens also part of problem

Key quote
"It is the number of hours and the age at which they start which produces the biological effects. It is because of the medium, not the message, that these effects are occurring." - DR ARIC SIGMAN

Story in full IT HAS long been blamed for creating a nation of couch potatoes. But a new report today claims that Britain's love affair with television is causing far more damage - both physically and psychologically - than previously thought.

The findings have been compiled by Dr Aric Sigman, a psychologist who has previously written about the effects of television on the viewer. His report, analysing 35 different scientific studies carried out into television and its effect on the viewer, has identified 15 negative effects he claims can be blamed on watching television.

Among the most disturbing findings are the links he claims to have found between long hours of television viewing and cancer, autism and Alzheimer's.

The effects on children watching TV have been well publicised in Britain. Fears of a timebomb of obesity have sparked a wave of ministerial initiatives to promote sport and tackle the couch-potato lifestyle.

HIV on Trial in Australia: Court Weighs Evidence for Claims of Isolation, Transmission and Testing

A motion for appeal in a criminal hearing in Adelaide, Australia has become the focus of international attention as fundamental claims by orthodox AIDS researchers — including the infamous Dr Robert Gallo — come under vigorous cross-examination by an attorney demanding scientific evidence that the virus exists. Top AIDS industry spokespersons from around the world have appeared in person or by satellite in Adelaide to defend the HIV hypothesis against charges by a local team of scientific and medical experts known as "The Perth Group" who asserts that two decades of AIDS research have failed to produce a purified isolate of HIV, validation of the accuracy so-called HIV tests, or proof that HIV is transmitted through bodily fluids.

On February 13, 2007 the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations opened hearings lambasting the FDA regarding the safety of drugs. The opening statement by Chairman John Dingell (D-MI) set the tone, “It is clear … that the FDA is badly broken. I expect that before we finish this investigation, which is just getting underway, we will discover whether the problems we have found are due to the work of scoundrels, irrational penny-pinching, or because the doors to the FDA “hen house” have been thrown open to foxes. It may be a combination of all three.”

The devastating extent to which watching television damages children's health is spelt out in a report today.

It lists 15 ways that over-exposure to TV can harm youngsters - from fuelling obesity and shortsightedness to causing premature puberty and autism.

Author Dr Aric Sigman, who reviewed 35 academic studies, said the findings implicated television in 'the greatest unacknowledged health scandal of our time'.

He accused Ministers of ignoring the link between TV and a host of adverse consequences in the young, including slower progress at school and poor health continuing into adulthood.

Limiting time spent in front of the Box must become a Government priority to improve children's well-being and save the Health Service millions, he said.
