Profits, Not Science, Motivate Vaccine Mandates
Recently in Society Category
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), a group of individuals hand-picked by members of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recommends which vaccines are administered to American children. Working mainly in secret, ACIP members frequently have financial links to vaccine manufacturers. Dependent on federal CDC funding, administrators of state vaccination programs follow CDC directives by influencing state legislators to mandate new vaccines. Federal vaccine funds can be denied to states that do not “vigorously enforce” mandatory vaccination laws.
Does your child really need Ritalin?
Prescriptions for Ritalin have doubled in the the last decade for children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder but is this chemical cosh an easy option when it should be the drug of last resort
Ben Napier wasn’t your typical ADHD child, more of a daydreamer than a misbehaver, remembers his mother, Pauline. 'He’d forget to hand in his homework, even though it was in his bag and have trouble understanding instructions or copying anything down off the board,’ she says. 'He was struggling at school and I knew something was wrong.’ When Ben was 12, his teacher recommended Pauline take him to see a doctor.
After a two-year process of assessment, Ben was finally diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Though Ben was relieved, 'I know I’m not stupid now,’ his mother was heartbroken. 'I felt powerless,’ says Pauline. By way of help, the only option offered to Ben was the medication methylphenidate, otherwise known as Ritalin, which works by stimulating a part of the brain that modifies mental and behavioural reactions. 'There was no offer of behavioural or parenting support, nothing,’ says Pauline. 'I felt it was my only option. It’s a terrible decision to have to make; to medicate your child.’
The flow of science in this modern age is largely controlled by just six corporate publishing groups, which by calculated design have been gobbling up the journal market since at least the 1970s. And a new study out of Canada reveals that this mass consolidation of publishing power is, to a large extent, skewing what passes as scientific progress.
Recently headlines were made as 118 oncologist, of the 22,125 currently active in the United States, sounded the alarm publicly about the rising price of cancer drugs calling them “unsustainable.” This rebellious 118, or half of one percent, appear to be making a valid argument from within a tightly controlled and highly profitable cancer industry. Perhaps unaware to most oncologist and others within the mainstream medical system is that drug companies rely on fraud and half truths to circulate their products. In fact, most major drug companies have repeatedly shown that profit margins trump empathy, true healing and human life 8 days a week.

While it appears that the recent measles hysteria pushed a button that rocketed nearly all 50 states to introduce vaccine bills simultaneously, calling to restrict and/or remove vaccine exemptions for children, the plan has actually been evolving for a long time. The flurry of legislative actions are rooted in the Healthy People guidelines which began 35 years ago.
In 1976, Congress created The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) to coordinate disease prevention and health promotion efforts across the United States. Three years later, Surgeon General Julius B Richmond chronicled the state of health in America, then defined five quantitative goals for public health. The document came to be referred to as Healthy People. With the help of Assistant Surgeon General Michael McGinnis, the formal publication was released in 1979. In 1980, a companion piece written by the Institutes of Medicine – Promoting Health/Preventing Disease: Objectives for the Nation – set forth 226 specific, measurable health objectives. This was the action plan for the Healthy People goals. These two documents, considered to be “landmarks” in the history of public health, became Healthy People 1990.
The Big Pharmaceutical Scam- 7 Shocking Truths About Big Pharma
by Luke Miller
There is an incredible amount of controversy surrounding pharmaceutical companies & the medicated culture that exists in a large portion of the western world today. With 70% of Americans taking at least one pharmaceutical drug &their largest growing marketing being children, it does beg the question, are these drugs the best solution? & are they safe? Firstly I would like to let you know where I stand as the person writing this article- I believe that a lot of pharmaceutical drugs are dangerous & an industry that makes money from us being sick should never be in charge of making us healthy. Pharmaceutical “companies” are just that- companies. So if there was a miracle tablet that made us all healthy & they released it they would lose trillions of dollars. So just from a business standpoint, it makes no sense for them to make us healthy. Health should always be a non-profit area, because while profit is not always a bad thing, the dynamics of the pharmaceutical industry will always breed corruption & I am not saying all pharmaceutical drugs are bad, I am saying that they may not be the best option.
7 Shocking Truths About Big Pharma
Woman who died of measles WAS vaccinated: First patient to die of disease in U.S. for 12 years succumbed to disease because of other health problems

The past 2 weeks I’ve reported on 3 alternative doctors (2 MD’s and 1 DC, PhD) who were found dead in less than two weeks (Click through for stories and funds for families as well as numbers to report tips to authorities) It was with heavy heart, as I knew a few of the doctors and have many mutual friends with all three. The only update on the third one, Dr. Teresa Sievers MD, is that they have absolutely no suspects in mind, and her husband and kids were out of state at a family reunion that she left early to get home to see patients. (update: Initially I said I would not post a link Dr. Sievers in this article and I didn’t. People started questioning me so, as much as it pains, me, here is the most recent article from NBC . Click through at your own risk. I’m not posting the details here.)
Now, in just a few days, we have 2 more doctors missing. The first is Dr. Fitzpatrick DO ( a doctor of Osteopathic medicine ) of North Dakota who went missing in or around July 3rd. NBC is reporting on his disappearance. I’m already being asked today if DO is an “alternative doctor” My significant other of 6 years is a D.O and you can feel free to research the meaning. I would like to clarify that Osteopaths go to med school just like an Medical doctor as the links describe. I just interviewed a famous Cardiologist this week who is a D.O. He explained how now the doctors coming out are more like traditional doctors, whereas back when this missing D.O. would have presumably gone to school, they would have learned more about traditional Osteopathic medicine in their schooling

Gardasil in Italy
My daughter Chiara is 13 years old. She was an athlete with a history of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis with elevated levels of anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies. We discovered it much before receiving HPV vaccine.
I can tell you that she was a good athlete. Hashimoto’s did not stop her from participating in the World Championship Karate in Caorle twice. In 2010, she won the brown belt. Chiara’s other hobbies included painting, singing and practicing sports. That was before Gardasil.
Chiara’s story after Gardasil is as follows:
She received the first injection of the HPV vaccine Gardasil in March 2013. It was about ten days before her menstrual cycle. Afterward, she was sick for three days showing nausea, headache, stomach-ache and faint.
In April 2013 she was again sick for five days but the doctor said that could be just a strong menstrual syndrome.
In May 2013 she received the second shot and she was sick again for seven days.
During June 2013 she stayed sick for ten days.
Many people were surprised he signed it so quickly since he had until July 13 to make up his mind. So what does this mean for parents? If your child is not yet vaccinated when school starts in August or September, you won't have to. The law goes into effect on July 1, 2016.
