Antibiotic Ketek Linked To Hepatitis, Liver Failure

|

According to a recent post on the Alternative Medicine Forum Yahoo group, an antibiotic - telithromycin - sold under the trade name Ketek, has been linked to three cases of liver trouble, one of them fatal and one requiring a liver transplant. All of them occurred at the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlott, N.C.

A warning to watch out for side effects when using the antibiotic was published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, details here.

The summary, from a send-out by the American College of Physicians follows here. Thanks to DitziSis.

What to do to Detox Aspartame

The most important starting point of any detoxification program is to stop exposure to the toxin or toxins. This means avoiding even small amounts, since once sensitized to the toxin even minute amounts can produce full-blown toxicity. This is especially so with accumulative toxins, such as aspartame. It has been shown conclusively that the metabolic products of methanol breakdown, formaldehyde in particular, accumulates on the DNA and cellular proteins. Once you have cleansed your diet of the toxin, removal of the toxin and its metabolic products from your system will begin. Central to this process is the body's detoxification system, which exist in all cells of the body, with the bulk of detoxification taking place in the liver. The detoxification system is divided into two components called phase I and phase II, which work in tandem. Toxins pass through phase I and then pass to phase II where they are further detoxified and made water-soluble for eventual disposal. It is now known that you can significantly enhance the body's ability to detoxify these substances through the judicious use of specific supplements. Of the two systems phase II is most important and most often impaired.

The New Mexico legislature is to consider bills intending to ban the controversial artificial sweetener aspartame. House bill 202 was introduced by The Honorable Irvin Harrison while senators Gerald Ortiz y Pino is filing an identical bill in the New Mexico Senate.

This new action may set an important precedent if adopted. Not only are the effects of the artificial sweetener to be examined. The question is whether the FDA can legitimately preempt State authority in health matters even if clearly inactive on a dangerous substance. This looks like it is going to be the real focus of this coming battle.

Lobbyists for the sweetener are apparently swarming the New Mexico legislative halls in an effort to drum up opposition to the measure, but consumer groups and anti-aspartame activists are not idle. Here is the latest information, thanks to Betty Martini.

Yahoo and others reveal queries from millions of people; Google refuses. Identities aren't included, but the data trove stirs privacy fears.

SAN FRANCISCO — Federal investigators have obtained potentially billions of Internet search requests made by users of major websites run by Yahoo Inc., Microsoft Corp. and America Online Inc., raising concerns about how the massive data trove will be used.

The information turned over to Justice Department lawyers reveals a week's worth of online queries from millions of Americans — the Internet Age equivalent of eavesdropping on their inner monologues. The subpoenaed data could, for example, include how many times people searched online for "apple pie recipes," "movie tickets 90012" or even "bomb instructions."

Powerful Anti-Cancer medicine Selenium

The mineral selenium proves itself as powerful anti-cancer medicine

One of the most effective naturally occurring weapons against cancer is, like most healthy things, something many of us are not getting enough of. The mineral selenium has been shown in multiple studies to be an effective tool in warding off various types of cancer, including breast, esophageal, stomach, prostate, liver and bladder cancers. Not many people get the recommended dose of 200 micrograms a day. Most Americans only get between 60 and 100 micrograms of selenium daily from dietary sources, according to the Life Extension Foundation's Disease Prevention and Treatment. That means daily supplements might be worth considering.

Selenium was first used in conventional medicine as a treatment for dandruff, but our understanding of the mineral has come a long way since then. Today, research shows selenium, especially when used in conjunction with vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene, works to block chemical reactions that create free radicals in the body (which can damage DNA and cause degenerative change in cells, leading to cancer).

Household insecticides may increase the risk of acute childhood leukaemia, a French study suggests.

The research, in the Occupational and Environmental Medicine journal, focused on data from 568 children - half of whom had acute leukaemia.

The team from the Inserm medical research institute also found exposure to insecticidal shampoos doubled the risk of developing the disease.

But UK cancer experts said the report did not prove there was a link.

Experiments on children continue

Greetings again BuzzFlash and Buzzers,

This is to issue a DIRECT and heartfelt sincere THANK YOU to both BuzzFlash for printing one of the letters in the Mailbag, and especially to a Mr. J L Scott, who identifies himself as Director of iCop.

Mr. Scott, you are so right about the experiments on children happening right here in this, our very own country. I became interested in this myself when I witnessed firsthand a series of abuses on poor people by the agency known as Child Protective Services and eventually went on to become a research assistant for the President of American Family Rights Association, Cheri Campbell. For
anyone who is interested in this topic you can find what I and the other research assistants discovered at http://www.ReliableAnswers.com. Look up ChildAbuse-Aids Experiment and read firsthand the articles written by Liam Scheff on the Administration of Children's Services in New York unlawfully seizing children from poor black and hispanic families that were supposedly HIV positive. They were placed in a hell hole full of horrors and subjected to twice or more times the amount for adults of highly toxic aids drugs. Many children died, but the attendants were told if the children had diarrhea, fell down, got sick or started vomiting, it wasn't the meds, it was their illness.

Tamiflu was developed several years ago after lab tests showed it slowed the replication of viruses in the lab dish. Tests in humans showed it reduced the normal 5 to 7 day course of Flu by 1.5 to 2.5 days. It did not prevent, cure nor reduce the effects of Flu. At best it is a palliative or pain reliever to "treat the symptoms," but not cure the disease.

Most medical doctors mistakenly believe in the "anti-body" response of the immune system as the method by which the body fights viral infections. But not so. The body causes a fever above 101 degrees which stops the telemeres on the ends of the virus from allowing any viral replication.

The fever is the body's primary generalized immune system response to any viral infection. Any palliative treatment which reduces the fever of flu infections will prolong the infection and may lead to irreparable damage or death, mostly from the resulting viral pneumonia. But the pneumonia was caused by lowering the fever and allowing uncontrolled viral replication in the lungs. Most cold medications, including aspirin and Tamiflu are in this palliative class.

Latest trends in Big Brother outstrip Orwell's worst nightmare

The Panopticon is defined as a prison so constructed that the inspector can see each of the prisoners at all times, without being seen. This is an accurate description of the accelerating movement by western governments to erect giant, powerful, all-pervading mass surveillance, tracking and control grids that will keep all populations firmly under the baleful and watchful gaze of Big Brother.

We are still debating the NSA listening to foreign calls from the US when the NSA admitted twenty years ago that they were listening to domestic US calls under the Echelon program. This is de-classified and public but the media acts like they don't know about it.

Why is there even a debate about if they are tracking and tracing us when RFID transponders are going in cars nationwide to follow our every movement?

Scientists Debate Bill to Restrict Chemicals
Lawmaker seeks to ban compounds in plastic baby products that may pose health risks.

Scientists on Tuesday debated the health risks of two chemicals found in plastic baby products as California legislators consider a bill that would make the state the only place in the world to restrict one of the compounds, which has been shown in some studies to mimic female hormones and possibly interfere with boys' reproductive development.

The bill, by Assemblywoman Wilma Chan (D-Alameda), would prohibit baby toys and feeding products from containing phthalates, used in the manufacture of vinyl, and bisphenol A, used in hard, clear polycarbonate plastic for an array of consumer products, including baby bottles.
