Marijuana cuts lung cancer tumor growth in half, a 2007 Harvard Medical School study shows.[i] The active ingredient in marijuana cuts tumor growth in common lung cancer in half and significantly reduces the ability of the cancer to spread, say researchers at Harvard University who tested the chemical in both lab and mouse studies. Smoking a joint is equivalent to 20 cigarettes in terms of lung cancer risk, scientists in New Zealand have found, reporting one year later, as they warned of an "epidemic" of lung cancers linked to cannabis.

Talking about wind shear medical science, you are looking above into the eye of a black hole. Outside the hole you have one team of scientists saying:

This is the first set of experiments to show that the compound, Delta-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), inhibits EGF-induced growth and migration in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expressing non-small cell lung cancer cell lines. Lung cancers that over-express EGFR are usually highly aggressive and resistant to chemotherapy. THC that targets cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 is similar in function to endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the body and activate these receptors.

"The beauty of this study is that we are showing that a substance of abuse, if used prudently, may offer a new road to therapy against lung cancer," said Anju Preet, Ph.D., a researcher in the Division of Experimental Medicine. Acting through cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2, endocannabinoids (as well as THC) are thought to play a role in variety of biological functions, including pain and anxiety control, and inflammation.

And from inside the black hole we have:

“Cannabis could be expected to harm the airways more than tobacco as its smoke contained twice the level of carcinogens, such as polyaromatic hydrocarbons, compared with tobacco cigarettes.”

"Cannabis smokers end up with five times more carbon monoxide in their bloodstream (than tobacco smokers)," team leader Dr. Richard Beasley, at the Medical Research Institute of New Zealand, said in a telephone interview with Reuters reporters. The researchers interviewed 79 lung cancer patients and sought to identify the main risk factors for the disease, such as smoking, family history and occupation. The patients were questioned about alcohol and cannabis consumption[ii]

What can we do short of spending millions of dollars in research to resolve this issue? Or short of preaching the virtues of Harvard University and the unreliability of New Zealand’s scientific community? We could do a short investigation of conflicts of interests or we could look with our naked eyes and see what is being said and what is being done. Certainly these researchers are stretching their scientific necks making assumptions based on questions and interviews of just a few people and they admit that. "While our study covers a relatively small group, it shows clearly that long-term cannabis smoking increases lung cancer risk," wrote Dr. Beaseley.

Perhaps it is better to use more toxic substances
since the safer less toxic ones are so dangerous.

If medical marijuana, one of the safest and most effective medicines in the universe of pharmacology is this dangerous - imagine the full range of pharmaceutical drugs, including aspirin and over the counter cough medicines, all of which are dramatically more toxic and kill huge numbers.[iii] Whereas marijuana is not known to have killed anyone until Dr. Beasely’s team, with the helping hand of the mass media, began to finger it as a major cause of cancer. Now all of a sudden, despite thousands of potential chemical assaults on our bodies, New Zealand’s finest speculate that, "Cannabis use could already be responsible for one in 20 lung cancers diagnosed."

Cigarette smoke has over 4,700 chemicals, 50 human cancer causing agents, and 200 poisons. Carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide and methyl isocyanate are among these poisons. Benzo{a}pyrene and NNK cause lung cancer, nitrosamines may lead to lung cancer, respiratory system and other cancers. Aromatic amines, which cause bladder and breast cancer, formaldehyde, a source of nasal cancer and benzene, which causes leukemia, can all be found in cigarette smoke. (American Cancer Society)

Cigarettes have never been used as medicine whereas
marijuana has many safe and effective medicinal applications.

Cigarette smoking is widely recognized as the leading preventable cause of illness, disability, and premature death in the United States. Today one in five deaths is cigarette-related! This accounts for more than 430,000 deaths each year. Half of all regular users will be disabled or die as a result of smoking.

Regular smokers increase their risk of death by:

Lung cancer 700%
Cancer of the larynx 500%
Cancer of the mouth 300%
Cancer of the esophagus 400%
Bladder cancer 100%
Cancer of the pancreas 100%
Emphysema 1,300%
Heart disease 100%

According to U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop (on national television, 1990) radioactivity, not tar, accounts for at least 90% of all smoking related lung cancer. Tobacco crops grown in the United States are fertilized by law with phosphates rich in radium 226. Using precision analytic techniques, researchers at American Tobacco found that smokers inhale an average of about .04 picocuries of polonium 210 per cigarette. Polonium 210 is a powerful radionuclide disgorging alpha particles — the most dangerous kind when it comes to lung cancer — at a much higher rate even than the plutonium used in the bomb dropped on Nagasaki. [iv]

Marijuana relieves pain that narcotics like morphine and
OxyContin have hardly any effect on, and could help ease
suffering from illnesses such as multiple sclerosis and diabetes.[v]

There has always been someone to blacken the image of this common weed but many see it as very safe and there seems to be no one claming any deaths from marijuana use until Dr. Beasley came along. We all know how dangerous it is to drink and drive and how drinking also increases violent crimes. Contrast these dangers to the following.

“There was a study done in England by a private group, which the government does not want you to know about. The study took 200 individuals, 100 of who smoke marijuana, and 100 of who do not. They had setup a driving course about 3 kilometers long, winding and very hard to navigate, they had set no speed limits for the drivers. What did this study find that the government does not want you to know? Out of the 100 people who did not smoke marijuana that took the course 50% of them hit pylons and they had an average speed of 42kmph. Out of the 100 people who did smoke marijuana before taking the driving test, 20% of them hit pylons and the average speed was 38kmph. Comparing the numbers we see that 50% of the non-substance users hit pylons while only 20% of the substance users did hit pylons. As well the non-substance users went an average speed of 42kmph while the marijuana users had an average speed of 38kmph. What does this tell us? Most, and we're not saying all, people drive more cautiously and pay more attention to their surroundings after using marijuana than those who do not use the drug.”[vi]

When we look at what Dr. Gregory T. Carter says, “Marijuana is a substance with many properties that may be applicable to the management of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). These include analgesia, muscle relaxation, bronchodilation, saliva reduction, appetite stimulation, and sleep induction. In addition, marijuana has now been shown to have strong antioxidative and neuroprotective effects, which may prolong neuronal cell survival. In areas where it is legal to do so, marijuana should be considered in the pharmacological management of ALS.”[vii] Dr. Beasley must have been studying something very different than Dr. Carter.

Antioxidants are not normally known to cause cancer.

Marijuana, a natural substance of very low toxicity, has a wide variety of positive therapeutic applications that includes relief from nausea and increase of appetite, reduction of inner eye pressure in Glaucoma patients, reduction of muscle spasms; and relief from chronic pain. In AIDS marijuana can reduce the nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite caused by the ailment itself and by various AIDS medications. In Cancer it can stimulate the appetite and alleviate nausea and vomiting, which are common side effects of chemotherapy treatment. It has also been suggested that Cannabis could be very effective in treating anorexia.

Though cannabinoids have been shown to modulate a variety of immune cell functions in humans and animals and more recently, have been shown to modulate T helper cell development, chemotaxis, and tumor development but researchers in New Zealand are warning us to stay away from it and they somehow have gained the full support of the mass media to make sure we know about it. But please tell me how willing you are to base your life around the assumptions made by a group of scientists questioning 79 cancer patients?

Special Note: Only a few days later and we see other examples of the medical industrial complex manipulating the minds of the human race.

Mercury from vaccines disappears quickly[viii]

Mercury from vaccines seems to disappear rapidly from the blood, returning to pre-vaccination levels in one month, according to a small study of children in Argentina. The findings bolster the argument that a mercury-based vaccine preservative doesn't cause autism in children, although it's unclear from the study whether some mercury may linger elsewhere in the body.

We could write miles defrauding this research and these conclusions. Here before us is a perfect example of what I call medical insanity. In the course of one week the mainstream media has put down one of the safest natural drugs in the world and is here defending the use of thimerosal, a registered neurological poison, which comes bottled to vaccine manufactures complete with the skull and bones poison symbol.

The Associated Press article continued saying, “The new findings suggest that methyl mercury and ethyl mercury are very different and that the removal of thimerosal from vaccines may have been over-cautious.” Yes they are different and yes both are deadly to biological existence.

Mike Adams writes, The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has gone ballistic over a fictional television program airing on ABC that shows a family successfully suing a vaccine manufacturer for their child's autism. Not satisfied to push dangerous vaccines onto children in the real world, the AAP now feels it must also control the thoughts and ideas of people living in fictional worlds by pressuring television networks to censor their programming.”

The overlords of the medical industrial complex
mean us harm and they mean to continue to make
as much money as possible off of poisoning people.

And to make it a clean sweep, we have another essay published right after the above two in the Hawaii Reporter, written by Jack Dini, that insists that the Hysteria Over Minuscule Amounts of Chemicals Is Unwarranted. The minute that something is found in food, in someone’s blood, etc., some folks get very concerned and start creating a lot of fuss according to Dini. Each time science improves our ability to detect minuscule traces "hysterical scaremongering" campaigns begin but Dini asserts that there is no evidence that low level concentrations of poisons pose any threat to people’s health.

Poisoning the human race is being accomplished one drop at a time but like rain drops that come down in a downpour they add up and eventually become a river. Thousands of tons of mercury, just one very dangerous heavy metal, are finding their way into the air, water, soil, plants and thus food each year. In reality we are being blanketed by poisons everywhere we turn.

Mercury is a metal that will eventually cause people to lose part of their minds (without them being aware of it) because it is an exceptionally strong neurological poison. Dentists, for example, have no idea, no awareness of why they die younger and commit suicide more frequently then other professionals.

There is a religion of poison and it includes thoughts like, “When they give birth we will inject poisons into the blood of their children and convince them it’s for their own good.” According to this religion there is never enough, the doses are always too small to harm us so what is the harm in exposing us to more?

It is the inability to see the effects of chronic,
low level toxicities on human health that has been,
and remains, our greatest failing as intelligent beings.

[iii] Over the counter medications are much more dangerous than most believe. Some 7,000 American children under the age of 11 are treated each year in hospital emergency rooms because of problems with cough and cold medications, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in early 2008. Different forms of aspirin kill around 15,000 Americans each year.
