We have watched the evening news as story after story of incidents related to the E. coli outbreak is told. Many are ill while others die after consuming tainted leafy greens.

What is E. coli? According to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, Escherichia coli, a.k.a. E. coli, is "a subgroup of fecal coliform bacteria that is present in the intestinal tracts and feces of warm-blooded animals. It is used as an indicator of the potential presence of pathogens. There are many different strains of E. coli that are classified into more than 170 serogroups. Although most strains of E. coli are harmless and live in the intestines of healthy humans and animals, the E. coli O157:H7 strain produces a powerful toxin and can cause severe illness."

Here is what is known. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, September 18, 2006, "federal authorities announced they will investigate farms in Salinas Valley seeking evidence of what caused the outbreak." [i]

The article goes on to quote Dr. David Acheson of the FDA saying, "Acheson, who called the outbreak one of the larger E. coli outbreaks ever reported, extended indefinitely the federal recommendation not to eat any fresh spinach or products that contain or are packaged with spinach that have a sell-by date of Aug. 17 through Oct. 1.

Dear Health Freedom Advocate,

Dr Wallace Bain, Acting Chair of the Coroners' Council, has just released this report into deaths caused by natural health medicines in New Zealand.

He highlights the information in light of the push by the New Zealand government for greater control over natural medicines by way of legislation to create the Australia New Zealand Therapeutics Products Authority (ANZTPA).

Natural medicines - the safest way to avoid death

A report just released by the Acting Chair of the Coroner's Council has shown natural medicines have the lowest fatality rate of all medical treatments in New Zealand.

Despite extensive research, coroner Dr Wallace Bain found no deaths have occurred in New Zealand due to natural medicines such as vitamins, minerals and herbal products.

Dr Bain, who is also a trained pharmacist and lawyer, undertook the study in light of growing opposition to new legislation that will see New Zealand's natural health industry come under Australian laws.

PANAMA CITY (Reuters) - Panamanian authorities recalled a popular high blood pressure medicine after investigations linked it to a mystery illness that has killed 19 people. Health Minister Camilo Alleyne said on Saturday early tests on Lisinopril tablets had not detected toxic agents, but the drug was being recalled from pharmacies, hospitals and private clinics nationally as a precaution.

He said nine out of 30 mainly elderly people who have fallen sick with the mystery illness over the past month had been taking Lisinopril tablets. Of those nine, five had died.

"The preliminary tests results were satisfactory," Alleyne told a news conference.

"However, the latest cases have the use of this medicine in common, so we are recommending its provisional withdrawal from the national market and from public and private health facilities as a preventative measure until further notice.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Federal Study Confirms Perchlorate as Widespread Public Health Threat

OAKLAND, CA — A startling new study by the federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says minute traces of a toxic rocket fuel chemical found in milk, fruit vegetables and drinking water supplies nationwide lowers essential thyroid hormones in women. An Environmental Working Group (EWG) analysis finds that 44 million American women who are pregnant, thyroid deficient or have low iodine levels are at heightened risk from exposure to the chemical.

Regulators have known for years that perchlorate, the explosive component of solid rocket fuel, can lower levels of the thyroid hormones essential to proper development of fetuses and infants and good health in adults. But new scientific evidence clearly shows that perchlorate is a much greater public health threat than previously realized. Tests of almost 3,000 human urine and breast milk samples — along with tests of more than 1,000 fruit, vegetable, cow's milk, beer, and wine samples — reveal that perchlorate exposure in the population is pervasive.

Conquering Cancer Through Vitamin C & Other Antioxidents

The following excerpt form Cancer: "Nutrition and Survival" is an important bit of information that needs more application, and many have asked, hence this excerpt. The citations can be found in the said book.

"The toxicity of current chemotherapeutic drugs might lead us to suppose that it is hard to find agents that will kill cancer cells without poisoning the patient. This is a misconception. Numerous common substances exist, which offer the property of selectively killing cancer cells, while leaving normal cells unharmed. Indeed, taking vitamin C as an example, these substances can often be beneficial to healthy cells."

Here is a more detailed update from Dr. Hickey (PhD) end stage cancer.

(NewsTarget) According to research by Chad Kinney, assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Eastern Washington University, fertilizer made from sewage sludge may be adding pharmaceuticals, flame retardants and other chemicals to the land.

Kinney's research showed that no less than nine different biosolid products were produced by municipal wastewater treatment plants in seven different states -- Washington, Arizona, Wisconsin, Kansas, Colorado, Texas and Iowa. These biosolid products were analyzed for 87 different organic wastewater contaminants, which represents a cross section of medicinal, industrial and household compounds.

A Rush to Medicate Young Minds

I have been treating, educating and caring for children for more than 30 years, half of that time as a child psychiatrist, and the changes I have seen in the practice of child psychiatry are shocking. Psychiatrists are now misdiagnosing and overmedicating children for ordinary defiance and misbehavior. The temper tantrums of belligerent children are increasingly being characterized as psychiatric illnesses.

Using such diagnoses as bipolar disorder, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and Asperger's, doctors are justifying the sedation of difficult kids with powerful psychiatric drugs that may have serious, permanent or even lethal side effects.

Chemical-laden goods outlawed in Europe and Japan are permitted in the American market.

OAKLAND — Destined for American kitchens, planks of birch and poplar plywood are stacked to the ceiling of a cavernous port warehouse. The wood, which arrived in California via a cargo ship, carries two labels: One proclaims "Made in China," while the other warns that it contains formaldehyde, a cancer-causing chemical.

Because formaldehyde wafts off the glues in this plywood, it is illegal to sell in many countries — even the one where it originated, China. But in the United States this wood is legal, and it is routinely crafted into cabinets and furniture.

As the European Union and other nations have tightened their environmental standards, mostly in the last two years, manufacturers — here and around the world — are selling goods to American consumers that fail to meet other nations' stringent laws for toxic chemicals.

Wood, toys, electronics, pesticides and cosmetics are among U.S. products that contain substances that are banned or restricted elsewhere, particularly in Europe and Japan, because they may raise the risk of cancer, alter hormones or cause reproductive or neurological damage.

The German medical doctor Ryke Geerd Hamer, who has faced serious persecution by German and French courts for advocating his 'heretical' views of cancer etiology and cure, is now asking for his "New German Medicine" to be scientifically reviewed and recognized as a state-of-the-art therapeutic system.

Hamer has run afoul of the courts after discovering the mechanism of cancer genesis and formulating his "iron rule of cancer". His open insistence that cancer is based on psychological factors and may be cured by eliminating lingering blocks from previously suppressed dramatic shock-type experiences has done nothing to endear him to official medicine which is advocating both chemical causes and chemical cures.

The latest disadventure for Hamer was a case that started in the French town of Chambery Savoie. Hamer, who had never set foot into France, was sentenced in absentia to a short prison term. Later, that sentence was overturned. The prison term increased and then a request for extradition from Spain brought Hamer into the French prison system. He was released in February this year, not before having been asked to submit to psychiatric treatment in prison, and to promise he would no longer promote his scientific views on illness. Hamer refused to compromise on both counts and was released after a Europe-wide campaign of letters and protests. He says that the case apparently got too embarrassing for the French justice system, after he [Hamer] had discovered and made public that judge Bessy, who had insisted on his incarceration, was the also the head of the rabbinical talmudic school in Chambery and the highest ranking rabbi in France.

Intriguing background

Chambery Savoie is the historical seat of the house of Savoy, the ruling royal dynasty in Italy up to the time of World War II. It just so happens that in 1978, prince Victor Emanuel of Savoy, heir to the Italian throne, killed Dirk Hamer, Ryke Geerd Hamer's son, in what appears to have been an accidental shooting. He was not held responsible for this by French justice. Hamer kept asking for Victor Emanuel to be brought to justice, but instead he himself was imprisoned by the French on trumped-up charges in a case that originated in ... Chambery in France's Savoy province.

Now that Hamer is free he has, with renewed vigor, re-launched his efforts to have his "New German Medicine" scientifically tested and confirmed and incorporated into standard medical treatments. An international protest event is planned for 21 October 2006 in Rome, and other actions are sure to follow.

October 5th is National Depression Screening Day (NDSD), a carefully orchestrated media campaign brought to you by the pharmaceutical and mental health industries for the purpose of scaring you out of your wits. Think of it as Halloween for drug companies and their pill pushing minions. Imagine them going door to door in ghoulish masks transferring fistfuls of green stuff into their overflowing Cash O’Lanterns while offering to make you a zombie too, and you’ll have it pretty close.

According to NDSD’s website, the funding sponsors are all drug makers. Eli Lilly, maker of the antidepressants Prozac and Cymbalta, is the major sponsor, with Forest Laboratories (antidepressants Lexapro and Celexa), GlaxoSmithKline (antidepressants Wellubtrin and Paxil), Pfizer (antidepressant Zoloft), and Wyeth Pharmceuticals (antidepressant Effexor) providing additional support.
