Your shampoo could be harming you. The substance 1,4-dioxane, is a carcinogen that’s commonly found in personal care products that create suds, such as in shampoos, hand soaps, and shower gels. According to the Environmental Working Group, at least 8,000 products contain 1,4-dioxane. In spite of this, companies are not required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to list it as an ingredient. This is because 1,4-dioxane is a contaminant that is created through ethoxylation, in which ethylene oxide—a breast carcinogen—is combined with other chemicals to make them less harsh. This reaction occurs during the manufacturing process, making 1,4-dioxane an unintentional byproduct in addition to being a contaminant.

The FDA encourages manufacturers to remove 1,4-dioxane, but this is not required by federal law. According to DailyMail.co.uk, New York Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand are aiming to change this and are pushing for a nation-wide ban on 1,4-dioxane. “It’s time to drain 1,4-dioxane from everyday products,” Schumer has said.

The legislative petition by Schumer will ask the FDA to begin requiring manufacturers to remove the chemical from their products. In a statement, Schumer commented: “The fact that 1,4-dioxane, a potentially dangerous chemical, is hiding out in everyday products expected to make us clean is very disturbing, and to make matters worse, likely carcinogens like this one can be even more harmful to kids.” (Related: FDA Regulations Permit Toxins in Cosmetics)

Based on a recent survey by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Schumer has also proposed that water providers conduct regular tests on the water supply in wells on Long Island and other areas of N.Y. “Consumers can’t identify it and most importantly, it ends up in our water supply,” the senator has said. Adrienne Esposito, Executive Director of the Citizens Campaign for the Environment, has stated that 1,4-dioxane can enter the water supply through “legacy manufacturing contamination and consumer personal-care products that get washed down the drain.”

Infants, teenagers, and pregnant women are the ones most vulnerable to the compound. Tests conducted on laboratory rats showed that the toxin can indeed cause cancer. Organizations like the EPA, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have labeled 1,4-dioxane as a human carcinogen.

Aside from the probability of cancer, Schumer has noted that the other long-term effects of 1,4-dioxane include liver and kidney damage. Studies performed on animals have shown that breathing 1,4-dioxane vapors can affect the nasal cavity. Even short-term exposure can dangerous as it can lead to nose, throat and eye irritation.

With these effects in mind, you need to be more careful of all your future bath product purchases. There may be no label for 1,4-dioxane, but you can read the label for other ingredients. According to SafeCosmetics.org, the names that you should look out for are “sodium laureth sulfate, PEG compounds, chemicals that include the clauses xynol, ceteareth and oleth.”

Choosing organic alternatives to common branded bath products is perhaps the safest way to avoid exposure to 1,4-dioxane. There exists a good number of organic personal care products that aren’t made with questionable chemicals or created through harmful manufacturing procedures. Many products available on the market contain small doses of 1,4-dioxane, notes the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry. So if you really want to avoid any and all contact with 1,4-dioxane, you have to be a more cautious and prudent consumer.

Here We Go Again: FDA Commissioner In Pocket Of Big Pharma

FakeNews

The excellent medical reporter, Martha Rosenberg, has written a piece at Salon: “The FDA Now Officially Belongs to Big Pharma.” Here are a few highlights:

“It is hard to believe only four senators opposed the confirmation of [the new FDA Commissioner]…[he] received money from 23 drug companies including the giants like Johnson & Johnson, Lilly, Merck, Schering Plough and GSK…”

“[He] also lists financial links to Gambro, Regeneron, Gilead, AstraZeneca, Roche and other companies and equity positions in four medical companies. Gilead is the maker of the $1000-a-pill hepatitis C drug AlterNet recently wrote about. This is FDA commissioner material?”

Oh, wait. I’m sorry.

Gee whiz. How could I have made that mistake?

I must have been asleep. Wow. I apologize. Martha Rosenberg published that Salon article in February of 2016, and she was talking about Robert Califf, who had just been confirmed as the new FDA Commissioner.

Califf was nominated by Obama, not Trump. Oops.

Trump’s current nominee is Scott Gottlieb, who is apparently tasked with speeding up the FDA’s drug-approval process—a disaster in the making, given the fact that FDA-approved medical drugs already kill 106,000 Americans a year (a conservative estimate). Source: see Journal of the American Medical Association, July 26, 2000, Dr. Barbara Starfield, “Is US Health Really the Best in the World?”

Here are a few quotes about Trump FDA-nominee Gottlieb from The Hill:

“But Gottlieb also faced criticism from groups that are concerned his ties to the drug industry could hurt the agency’s commitment to safety and efficacy.”

“He has longtime ties to the drug and medical industry after leaving the FDA in 2007.”

“He is currently a member of the product investment board for drug giant GlaxoSmithKline, and a member of the board of directors for MedAvante, Gradalis, and Glytec, which does work in medical technology.”

“Public Citizen blasted Gottlieb for taking what they said was hundreds of thousands of dollars from multiple drug and device companies between 2013 and 2015, mostly for consulting and speaking fees.”

Gee, he sounds a lot like Obama’s FDA Commissioner, Califf.

The beat goes on.

You would think these FDA Commissioners are hand-picked by pharmaceutical companies. But that’s impossible. That would never happen.

Certainly not.

If it did, we would be living in a parallel universe where corporations and government are colluding and partnering and decimating people with their medicines…

Instead of living in this universe, where the State and business are entirely separated.

Where all is well.

FDA approves outlandish $37,000 topical cream to fight eczema

The ever-increasing price tag that comes along with pharmaceuticals has been a consistent point of contention for many years. Recently, drug makers have found themselves under an unflattering spotlight for their ridiculous spikes in consumer costs, especially when it comes to the price-gouging of life-saving drugs like the EpiPen. In 2015, residents of the United States spent a jaw-dropping $457 billion on prescription medications, and this issue will only continue to worsen: The rising price of prescription drugs has long since outpaced inflation.

The latest drug for eczema is one such example of this. Dupixent, which is chemically named dupilumab, is the brain child of Sanofi SA and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and is set to cost a staggering $37,000 a year before insurance rebates — a price tag equivalent to many a person’s annual income. The product, intended for moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (otherwise known as eczema) is reportedly going to be “the most important future growth driver” for the two pharma companies. The cost of Dupixent greatly exceeds that of current treatment regimens. But apparently, the fact that it costs less than other pricey injectable antibody drugs, like the $50,000 treatment for psoriasis, is supposed to make the staggering price tag easier to swallow.

Eczema affects roughly 2 percent of the United States’ adult population, and is estimated to affected between 10 and 20 percent of the nation’s children. Approximately one-third of adults have a moderate-to-severe form of the condition. Current common treatments include special lotions and steroid creams, along with immunosuppressants.

There’s no question that eczema is a tough condition to live with. The chronic skin condition is characterized by relentlessly itchy skin and inflammation, and can be quite painful and uncomfortable for those afflicted with it. The skin often develops red, scaly and crusty bumps. Scratching makes the inflammation worse, and leads to cracking and weeping of the skin. Inevitably, the skin’s surface becomes coarse and thick.

Dr. Emma Guttman-Yassky, Vice Chair of the department of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York who conducted clinical trials of dupilumab, commented, “This condition is terrible for patients. They don’t sleep at night. It’s like having poison ivy all the time all over the body.” She added that many patients miss work, and even begin to contemplate suicide, because of their condition.

In spite of the attempt at nobility for creating this new drug, Wall Street analysts have estimated that sales for the pharma firms will exceed $4 billion by the year 2022 — quite the figure for just five years on the market.

This new drug has been described as a “game changer,” and it certainly is. You see, Dupixent is something of a hybrid: it’s a biotechnology drug that essentially hacks the human body to block two inflammatory proteins, known as interleukin-4, or IL-4 and IL-13.  It is a targeted immune system drug, also known as a monoclonal antibody. In a statement, the FDA explained,”By binding to this protein, Dupixent is able to inhibit the inflammatory response that plays a role in the development of atopic dermatitis.”

Of course, messing around with one’s immune system often comes with its own host of ill effects. According to the FDA, the most common side effects of this drug include injection site reactions, cold sores around the mouth, and swelling, redness and itchiness of the eyes or eyelids. While not technically an immunosuppressant, one must wonder what the long-term effects of taking this drug every other week or so might be.

But is there another, more natural and less expensive way to treat eczema? Some people, like Alice Morgan of Liverpool, have had great success in managing their eczema with dietary changes. Morgan’s adult eczema was so severe, practically her whole body was covered in blisters. In 2016, she made news headlines by telling her tale of victory: She changed her diet and began to fill her plate with an array of fruits and vegetables, instead of junk.

“I am a true believer that the correct diet can cure any disease or illness,” Morgan says.

How many African Green Monkeys are infected, euthanized and then organ harvested each year to make FDA-approved vaccines?

[Editor’s Note]

For those that think this is a joke, this very document at the CDC’s very own website shows this, and many other toxins within vaccines.  This is why its imperative people do their research, because if people really knew what vaccines had, they’d think they woke up in another reality.

Now that it’s been proven that vaccine manufacturers harvest kidney cells from African Green Monkeys to produce vaccines that are injected into children, many are now wondering just how many of these monkey are captured, euthanized, and processed into vaccine ingredients each year to make these FDA-approved poison jabs?

As you may recall, Natural News was falsely accused of spreading “fake news” after breaking the story on African Green Monkey kidney cells, and other horrific ingredients, being used in the manufacture of vaccines. For merely publishing the ingredients listed on the vaccine package inserts that manufacturers are required to provide with their vaccines, Natural News faced an unrelenting barrage of fact-less criticism.

Not long after, though, it was realized that Natural News was telling the truth: these ingredients are, indeed, being used in childhood vaccines, and many parents aren’t aware of this fact because their doctors and pediatricians aren’t showing them the vaccine package inserts. Now the outrage is going in the other direction, as it should, because people are realizing that they’ve been lied to by their government. (RELATED: You can stay informed on important vaccine issues by visiting Vaccines.news.)

“As Natural News correctly reported, one of the many animal-derived ingredients used in vaccines and openly admitted by the CDC is African Green Monkey kidney cells,” writes Mike Adams, the Health Ranger. “Apparently, this realization was just too much for the scientifically illiterate media (and wholly dishonest vaccine pushers) who insisted it couldn’t possibly be true.”

You can see the list of ingredients yourself, published by the CDC, at this Natural News article link.

Parents: are you aware of all the horrible things being injected into your children?

Knowing that millions of vaccine are produced and administered every single year for injection into children, it boggles the mind to consider just how many of these African Green Monkeys are being subjected to death in order to manufacture them. The number has to be at least into the thousands, though no official number has been released by the CDC.

Many of these same vaccines also contain cells from aborted human fetal tissue, which sheds a whole new light on Planned Parenthood’s illegal baby harvesting scheme that involved selling aborted baby body parts to biotechnology companies for use in manufacturing “medicines.” It is now abundantly obvious that Planned Parenthood was trafficking those baby body parts for potential use in vaccine manufacture.

This is in addition to all the viruses, heavy metals, chemical preservatives, food colorings, and other toxic ingredients used in making vaccines. Children today are being injected with some of the most disturbing and poisonous substances known to mankind, and very few people seem at all concerned with what’s going on.

It’s probably because so many people don’t even know what’s going on, thanks to the mainstream media’s dereliction of duty in reporting on this important subject. Every parent should be required to peruse a vaccine package insert before injecting his or her child with a vaccine, and yet this is rarely the case.

Most doctors fail to inform parents about the presence of both human and animal tissue in their children’s “medicine,” for instance. They rarely mention the use of toxic mercury (thimerosal) in vaccines, or other noxious ingredients like aluminum, genetically-modified (GM) byproducts, cow blood, chemical solvents, and more. These additives are certifiably NOT safe, and they serve no beneficial purpose for those into whom they’re being injected.

“Several vaccines currently available in the United States were developed using the Vero cell line, started from African green monkey kidney cells,” explains The History of Vaccines.

These include:

• Rotavirus vaccines (Rotarix by GlaxoSmithKline and RotaTeq by Merck & Co.)
• Polio vaccine (IPOL by Sanofi Pasteur)
• Smallpox vaccine (ACAM2000 by Sanofi Pasteur)
• Japanese encephalitis vaccine (Ixiaro by Intercell)

Prescription drugs declared “one of the most significant perils to human health” by British medical journal

Prescription drug therapy has been a major contributor to the soaring rates of serious, disabling or fatal injuries, according to a 2011 study published in the British Journal of Medicine. Data from the Institute for Safe Medication Practices showed that anticoagulants dabigatran and warfarin were the most frequently identified medications that were reported to the FDA, suggesting that treatments designed to inhibit blood clots top the health risk index among prescription drugs. Nine other drugs were also shown to meet five criteria for clinically-relevant injuries associated with drugs.

The FDA received a total of 179,855 reports of serious, disabling and fatal drug interactions in the U.S. in 2011, a significant 9.4 percent increase (15,386 more cases) from 2010. The federal agency received the highest number of direct calls for the anticoagulants dabigatran and warfarin at 817 and 490, respectively.

Dabigatran was approved in 2010 for the prevention of stroke among patients with atrial fibrillation. Both manufacturer and direct FDA reports showed that the prescription drug was associated with nearly 4,000 serious domestic health conditions in 2011, surpassing many other regularly monitored prescription drugs. Dabigatran was the most commonly reported anticoagulant for hemorrhage, acute renal failure, stroke and liver failure.

Warfarin, on the other hand, is a generic drug that was approved in 1954, and has since become a staple in anticoagulation therapy. The generic prescription drug accounted for 1,106 reports in 2011, including 72 deaths. Warfarin requires regular laboratory assessment to optimize dosing. It also interacts with numerous other treatments.

Other prescription drugs listed were levofloxacin, carboplatin and lisinopril. These prescription drugs each accounted for more than 300 direct reports to the FDA.

Various prescription drugs were also attributed to many direct FDA reports regarding lawsuits filed by injured patients. Metoclopramide tops the list with 11,450 cases filed against its manufacturer. Metoclopramide is used in the treatment of acid reflux and nausea. The drug is tied to irreversible movement disorders.

Oral contraceptives Yaz and Yasmin were hit by 8,354 lawsuits in 2011. The drugs contain synthetic progestin, and are linked to higher odds of blood clots.

Avandia, a type 2 diabetes drug, had a total of 4,105 cases filed against its manufacturer. Avandia has been tied to increased risk of cardiovascular disease among patients with diabetes.

Chantix was fourth among the most sued drugs. Chantix is a smoking cessation drug associated with serious psychiatric side effects.

Accutane, a prescription drug used for the treatment of severe acne, contains strong warnings about inflammatory bowel disease, pancreatitis, serious skin conditions, birth defects and psychiatric disorders.

Data show the most reported side effects and notorious drugs behind them

Researchers identified that severe liver injury was the most prominent side effect associated with prescription drug therapy. A total of 2,260 such injuries were reported in 2011. Infliximab and acetaminophen accounted for 13.2 percent of reported cases. Data showed that infliximab led to a total of 159 reported cases, while acetaminophen accounted for 139 cases.

Severe cutaneous reactions appeared to be the second most reported adverse events at 2,207 cases. Severe skin reactions resulting from taking prescription drugs were noted in the report. Some serious cases involved life threatening skin conditions like Stevens-Johnson syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis. Lamotrigine, an anti-epileptic drug, was linked to most reported cases at 119, followed by smoking cessation treatment, Chantix, at 93 cases. Both drugs were responsible for 9.6 percent of reported cases of severe cutaneous reactions.

Data also revealed that suicidal and/or homicidal tendencies were listed among the most prominent side effects of prescription drug treatment. According to the report, a total of 2,030 cases of suicidal/homicidal attempts were tied to prescription therapy in 2011. Quetiapine, a drug used to treat psychosis, ranked as the leading drug suspect for suicidal/homicidal attempts, at 197 reported cases. The smoking cessation drug varenicline accounted for 187 cases.

Pancreatitis was also a prominent side effect that was tied to prescription medications. According to the report, there were nearly 2,000 reported cases of pancreatitis in 2011. Diabetes drugs liraglutide and exenatide were attributed to 43 percent of pancreatitis cases reported. Liraglutide accounted for 413 reported cases of pancreatitis, while exenatide was blamed for 404 cases.

Rhabdomyolysis was also included in the list of most reported side effects. This condition occurs when damaged or destroyed skeletal muscle cells release a protein called myoglobin into the bloodstream. High myoglobin levels lead to renal failure. More than 500 cases of rhabdolyolysis were associated with prescription drug treatment. Cholesterol-lowering drugs simvastatin and rosuvastatin accounted for a 38 percent incidence rate in the report, at 123 cases and 73 cases, respectively.

Big Pharma: From Rx blunders to billion dollar revenues

The U.S. pharmaceutical industry plays a vital role in global drug production. Data from statistics portal STATISTA shows that the U.S. alone is responsible for more than 40 percent of the total global pharmaceutical market. In fact, this share was estimated to have a net value of about $413 billion in 2015. In the same year, six of the top 11 global drug firms were based in the U.S.

Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Merck & Co. were the largest U.S.-based drug firms in the global market. Johnson and & Johnson alone generated around $70 billion in revenue for F.Y. 2015.

Statistics also showed that the total nominal drug spend in the country amounted to $425 billion in 2015. Diabetes, cancer and autoimmune disorders were among the top three conditions that a large chunk of money was being spent on. The U.S. spent more than $110 million on these diseases in 2015 alone. On the other hand, Gilead Sciences’ hepatitis C drug, Harvoni, was the highest-selling treatment in the U.S., generating a massive revenue of close to $14 billion in 2015.

According to a report by the Centre for Research on Globalization, more than 75 percent of U.S. citizens aged 50 and older are currently taking prescription medicines, while one-in-four middle-aged women are reportedly on antidepressants. Research also shows that the U.S. consumes up to 80 percent of the global supply of painkillers. People who admit to taking prescription drugs report taking four prescription treatments on a daily basis.

The report also identified medical error as a third leading cause of death in the U.S. – well behind heart disease and cancer. Data showed that 440,000 U.S. citizens die annually due to medical errors that are otherwise preventable. Heavy reliance on big pharmaceutical companies for drug information appears to be the root cause of misdiagnosis and subsequent medical errors committed by medical practitioners. Their lack of adequate knowledge and training on certain drug interactions contributes to the increasing rates of medical errors that could have been prevented. Furthermore, the report states that the over-prescription of antibiotics has proved to be a rising threat in the U.S., with up to 20,000 prescriptions released every year. Most of these antibiotics contain toxic chemicals that can cause severe damage to the nervous system.

Mismanagement of antibiotic intake has been shown to promote bacterial resistance, making the drugs less effective. The report argues that doctors and big pharmaceutical companies know this, but continue to push the over-prescription of antibiotics anyway. The report also called out the big pharma industry, stating that the inclusion of various toxins and questionable ingredients in childhood vaccines is egregious in nature and further exacerbates the risk of autism, brain damage and death.

Another Devastating Revelation On Killer Medical Drugs Is Buried

March 5, 2017

Every once in a while, an analysis that explodes confidence in the medical system surfaces.

It might appear as a newspaper article, or a review published in a medical journal.

Its fate is always the same. It sinks like a stone in a dark lake. As if it never happened.

Months or years later, people who read the original article begin to doubt their own memory. “Did I really read that? If I had, surely other articles would have been written. There would have been uproar…”

No. It’s par for the press to bury uncomfortable stories and give them a quick death. It’s another form of censorship.

For example:

The citation is: BMJ June 7, 2012 (BMJ 2012;344:e3989) “Anticoagulants cause the most serious adverse events, finds US analysis.” Author, Jeanne Lenzer.

Lenzer refers to a report by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices: “It calculated that in 2011 prescription drugs were associated with two to four million people in the US experiencing ‘serious, disabling, or fatal injuries, including 128,000 deaths.’”

The report called this “one of the most significant perils to humans resulting from human activity.”

And here is the final dagger. The report was compiled by outside researchers who went into the FDA’s own database of “serious adverse [medical-drug] events.”

Therefore, to say the FDA isn’t aware of this finding would be absurd. The FDA knows. The FDA knows and it isn’t saying anything about it, because THE FDA CERTIFIES, AS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE, ALL THE DRUGS THAT ARE ROUTINELY MAIMING AND KILLING AMERICANS.

And here is another “stone that sank in the lake” I just came across. This one is from the June 27th, 2014, issue of the Harvard Safra Center for Ethics newsletter, by Donald Light, “New Prescription Drugs: A Major Health Risk With Few Offsetting Advantages”:

“Few know that systematic reviews of hospital charts found that even properly prescribed drugs (aside from misprescribing, overdosing, or self-prescribing) cause about 1.9 million hospitalizations a year. Another 840,000 hospitalized patients are given drugs that cause serious adverse reactions for a total of 2.74 million serious adverse drug reactions. About 128,000 people die [per year] from drugs prescribed to them. This makes prescription drugs a major health risk, ranking 4th with stroke as a leading cause of death. The European Commission estimates that adverse reactions from prescription drugs cause 200,000 deaths; so together, about 328,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe die from prescription drugs each year. The FDA does not acknowledge these facts and instead gathers a small fraction of the cases.”

Any sane person would expect a massive reaction to these stories. Congressional probes, court cases, arrests and prosecutions of FDA officials and pharmaceutical executives and researchers, mass firings of editors at medical journals who publish studies praising the killer drugs.

But no. It doesn’t happen.

Essentially, these criminals are left alone, and they continue in their work. They’re like war criminals who have let off the hook for their crimes against humanity.

And these days, the elite media outlets who are crowing about “fake news” are not put under the spotlight for their decades of inattention to medical murder.

In their silence, they enable medical murder.
