On October 19, 2006, the FDA fired off twenty-four warning letters to small nutrition companies that made claims they had natural remedies to help with diabetes. At first glance, one might think the FDA was actually doing its job. With tremendous bravado they announced to the world their trouncing of internet fraud. It is interesting how the FDA is now teaming up with Mexican and Canadian health authorities to attack American companies, part of the FDA‚s illegal North American Union.

Citizens of the world are becoming very concerned about the safety and the actual usefulness of vaccines. Some of the questions being asked are: 1. Do vaccines actually provide protection against disease? 2. Are vaccines safe for healthy people, never mind those who are already sick or frail? 3. Do vaccines unfavorably alter the immune system? 4. Are many of our degenerative diseases at least partially due to the ever growing number of vaccines? 5. Do the scare tactics being used by our government health agencies have more to do with profit than promoting the health of it's citizens?

Dr. Viera Scheibner, a well known vaccine critic, tells us; " There is no evidence whatsoever of the ability of vaccines to prevent any diseases. To the contrary, there is a great wealth of evidence that they cause serious side effects."

It's the beginning of the influenza season, and despite the annual warnings from public health officials, I won't be getting a flu shot. Nor will I haul my doctor-phobic toddler into the pediatrician's office for one.

I know the flu virus can cause complications in vulnerable populations with chronic conditions, and we're both considered high risk. I'm pregnant, and for the first time this year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also suggests that healthy but germ-spreading children ages 2 through 5 receive flu shots.

Doctors in the UK are to be warned that the bird flu drug Tamiflu could be linked to psychiatric problems including suicidal behaviour, it emerged today.

In the next two to three months, Roche Pharmaceuticals, which manufactures the drug, will issue new information to doctors about more than 100 worldwide cases in which patients suffered mental health problems while taking it, the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) said.

It had to happen sooner or later. On October 3, 2006, after extensive review of all studies relating to cholesterol-lowering benefits by statin drugs, scientists reporting in the Annals of Internal Medicine pulled the rug out from under the current government-sanctioned cholesterol levels for reducing cardiovascular disease. Their conclusion, “current clinical evidence does not demonstrate that titrating lipid therapy to achieve proposed low LDL cholesterol levels is beneficial or safe.”

This is not a trivial issue. Many billions of taxpayer dollars have been wasted on the cholesterol drug scam. The health and well being of millions of Americans may have been compromised by reckless lowering of cholesterol, a substance that is vital to health and energy production.

Cell, TV towers pose risk for birds

The conflict between technology and nature hasn't gone well for migratory birds. The light from cellphone and TV towers has lured millions of them to their deaths.

WASHINGTON — Is the pursuit of fewer dropped calls leading to more dropping birds?

The lights atop communications towers that warn pilots to stay away can have a come-hither effect on birds — killing millions of migrating warblers, thrushes and other species every year.

During bad weather, birds can mistake tower lights for the stars they use to navigate. They will circle a tower as if in a trance, often until they crash into the structure, its guy wires or other birds. Sometimes disoriented birds simply plummet to the ground from exhaustion.

Months before a depression/suicide screening could begin in Kenosha schools, debate on the efficacy and appropriateness of the program is in full swing.

Supporters and detractors of Columbia University’s TeenScreen addressed a Kenosha Unified School Board committee Tuesday, holding up the program — designed to identify suicide risk factors in children age 11-18 — as both a necessary opportunity for a group under-served by mental health care professionals and as lawsuit bait overreaching a school district’s place in the community.

The White House is lobbying British ministers to allow the world's main drug companies unrestricted access to the NHS as part of a package of free market reforms for the service. The US government is positioning itself behind the giant pharmaceutical firms, predominantly based in America, which have been piling pressure on the body that approves drugs for use in hospitals and for prescription by GPs.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 12 — The Bush administration said on Sunday that it would strenuously oppose one of the Democrats’ top priorities for the new Congress: legislation authorizing the government to negotiate with drug companies to secure lower drug prices for Medicare beneficiaries.

In an interview, Michael O. Leavitt, the secretary of health and human services, said he saw no prospect of compromise on the issue.

“In politics,” Mr. Leavitt said, “most specific issues like this are a disguise for a larger difference. Government negotiation of drug prices does not work unless you have a program completely run by the government. Democrats say they want the government to negotiate prices. What they really want is government-run health care.”
