Conventional medicine, as practiced today, is actually pretend medicine. Doctors and drug companies pretend to make patients healthier by giving them drugs. The FDA pretends to protect the safety of the public. Medical journals pretend to print only rigorous, scientifically-sound research papers. Drug companies pretend to care about the lives and health of patients. Non-profit disease front groups pretend to be searching for the cure while, in reality, most of them are only searching for more ways to recruit patients into conventional medicine treatments like drugs, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.

The following article by Beldeu Singh develops the nutritional genesis of cancer cell formation based on free radical reactions causing lipid peroxidation of cell membranes. It explains the role of the free radical damaged cell membrane as a ROS (reactive oxygen species, also called free radicals) generating system that plays a key role in the increase of acidity of the cytoplasm that slowly inactivates the enzymes involved in aerobic respiration and the rerouting of glucose into anaerobic pathways to produce alcohol - the energy molecule in cancer cells instead of ATP - and how in the presence of excess ROS the cancer cell transforms into an alcohol-alkane bioreactor fuelled by ROS in which new toxic pathways are established that produce ROS-induced toxic chemicals such as alkanes and benzene. These, in turn cause tumour growth.

More importantly, it explains how fat soluble antioxidants stabilize oxidized biomembranes and restore their functional intergrity and how, in the presence of excess natural vitamin C, the ROS scavengers promote tumour regresssion by terminating toxic pathways and creating an equilibrium that favors ATP production.

One of our fat soluble antioxidants is the high density fraction of cholesterol - HDL or high-density lipids. Instead of decreasing cholesterol at any price, which we seem to be bent on doing with lipitor and other statin drugs, and which has serious side effects, we should welcome the fact that we have this vital substance. At the most we could intervene to increase the HDL part of cholesterol by dietary means. But then - there is apparently too much money in statins. They are one of the major sellers of the drug industry and arguably one of the worst influences on our health.

Seroxat [Paxil], the British-made antidepressant which outsells Prozac, causes more people distressing withdrawal problems when they try to stop taking it than any other drug in the UK.

The committee on the safety of medicines, which receives reports of drug side-effects from doctors and pharmacists, has received an avalanche of complaints about Seroxat, one of the class of drugs known as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors). The SSRIs, including Prozac, have always been marketed as safe medicines which are supposed not to cause the dependence problems that emerged with older drugs such as Valium and Ativan.

DOVER, Del. ˜ Drinking water supplies near a DuPont facility in New Jersey have been contaminated with chemicals, including a suspected carcinogen used in the production of Teflon, according to a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday.

The lawsuit alleges that the contamination is linked to the manufacturing, use and disposal of perfluorinated chemicals, including PFOA, at DuPont's Chambers Works plant in Salem County, N.J.

Most medical doctors are hostile toward the use of nutritional supplements. They parrot that they are ineffective and possibly dangerous due to a lack of scientific evidence supporting them. Not true. Mountains of evidence exist. And it points to some fascinating and highly effective nutritional supplements. To obtain new drugs, pharmaceutical chemists, like myself, rigorously study nutritional supplements (i.e. natural products). Once a single active ingredient is identified a chemist makes a "copy-cat." The drug company then calls it their own. Simply put, if the study of nutritional supplements did not exist then drugs would not be possible.

Most every drug sold today has a natural-based predecessor. Drug companies and medical doctors obfuscate this historical fact. They like patients to think that drugs are intuitively invented out of thin air. This helps foster the very profitable belief that drugs are the only option for health. Understanding that nutritional supplements guide drug development will allow you more choices in health care - inexpensive and safe ones. Consider the following examples:

Poisoning our children

Top Republicans -- Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., and House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., -- recently sold the future of our children to Big Pharma for a paltry $4 bucks a pop.

That's the additional cost to produce a safe vaccine, a vaccine minus the mercury-based preservative thimerosal. Mercury is a deadly neurotoxin that has long been known to cause serious learning disabilities and death, and is strongly suspected in contributing to autism. According to the California Public Schools Autism Prevalence Report for the School Years 1992-2003, the increase in autism prevalence is systemic across the entire United States "and should be an urgent public-health concern ... The disease frequency of autism now surpasses that of all types of cancer combined." The report notes a 1,086 percent cumulative growth rate of autism over the period, with a 23 percent average annual growth rate.

Experts say the stimulant drugs prescribed for the treatment of ADHD are not only dangerous, they are highly addictive. And although no drug has been approved for the treatment of autism, drugs are routinely prescribed off-label to treat autistic children.

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, over the period of 5 years between 1997 and 2002, the number of children between the age of 3 to 17, diagnosed with ADHD went from 3.3 million to 4.4 million.

In direct correlation, the number of children prescribed ADHD drugs also rose steadily. In fact, spending on these types of medications for children is now higher than spending on antibiotics and asthma drugs. In February 2006, the FDA revealed that between 1999 and 2003, seventy-eight million prescriptions for ADHD drugs were written for children between the ages of 1 to 18. Terry Davis, a member of an FDA advisory committee, has said prescriptions for ADHD drugs filled annually have a value of $3.1 billion.

SUMMARY:
Our next generation of children is in grave danger. TeenScreen is working insidiously in schools to find children who can become the psychiatric/pharmaceutical industry's next cash cow. This may be good for the drug business but is very bad for our children and, factually, for the future of this entire society.

TeenScreen - Stealing Our Children's Future

How do you disable an entire generation? Truth be told, it's actually very simple. You just have to get to the children while they are young, before they are able to speak for themselves. You convince the parents of these children that their children are victims, victims of something not under their control, something sinister yet not scientifically measurable.

A 20-year-old man who suffered severe reactions during testing of a drug intended to treat autoimmune diseases and leukemia said he will lose parts of his fingers and toes.

Ryan Wilson was among six healthy volunteers who took part in the clinical trial and suffered convulsions and organ failure minutes after being administered the test drug TGN1412. All the other volunteers have been released from the hospital.

Trans Fats - A Death Sentence

IT'S never pleasant to learn that an artificial substance in your food might be ruining your health. This is what happened with trans fats when they were "discovered" in the food supply a few years ago, after a high-profile lawsuit against the makers of the Oreo cookie (laden with trans fats, who knew?) captured headlines nationwide.

The publicity pushed the Food and Drug Administration to require that trans fats be listed on package labels starting this year. Producers of cookies, cakes, crackers, frozen foods and margarines, all high in trans fats, thus had an incentive to eliminate them from their products. But Americans would be better protected if the F.D.A. would limit trans fats in all foods.
