I’m talking about little defenders of consensus science, bloggers who love and adore every official pronouncement that comes down the pipeline from medical journals and illustrious doctors.

Dear Bloggers: Thousands of published studies you cite and praise are wrong, useless, irrelevant, deceptive—and the medical journals know it, and they’re doing nothing useful about it.

The issue? Cell lines. These cells are crucial for lab research on the toxicity of medical drugs, and the production of proteins. Knowing exactly which cell lines are being studied is absolutely necessary.

And therein lies the gigantic problem.

Statnews.com has the bombshell story (July 21, 2016):

“Recent estimates suggest that between 20 percent and 36 percent of cell lines scientists use are contaminated or misidentified — passing off as human tissue cells that in fact come from pigs, rats, or mice, or in which the desired human cell is tainted with unknown others. But despite knowing about the issue for at least 35 years, the vast majority of journals have yet to put any kind of disclaimer on the thousands of studies affected.”

“One cell line involved are the so-called HeLa cells. These cancerous cervical cells — named for Henrietta Lacks, from whom they were first cultured in the early 1950s — are ubiquitous in labs, proliferate wildly — and, it turns out, contaminate all manner of cells with which they come into contact. Two other lines in particular, HEp-2 and INT 407, are now known to have been contaminated with HeLa cells, meaning scientists who thought they were working on HEp-2 and INT 407 were in fact likely experimenting on HeLa cells.”

“Christopher Korch, a geneticist at the University of Colorado, has studied the issue. According to Korch, nearly 5,800 articles in 1,182 journals may have confused HeLa for HEp-2; another 1,336 articles in 271 journals may have mixed up HeLa with INT 407. Together, the 7,000-plus papers have been cited roughly 214,000 times, Science reported last year.”

“And that’s just two cell lines. All told, more than 400 cell lines either lack evidence of origin or have become cross-contaminated with human or other animal cells at some point in their laboratory lineage. Cell lines are often chosen for their ability to reproduce and be bred for long periods of time, so they’re hardy buggers that can move around a lab if they end up on a researcher’s gloves, for example. ‘It’s astonishingly easy for cell lines to become contaminated,’ wrote Amanda Capes-Davis, chair of the International Cell Line Authentication Committee, in a guest post for Retraction Watch. ‘When cells are first placed into culture, they usually pass through a period of time when there is little or no growth, before a cell line emerges. A single cell introduced from elsewhere during that time can outgrow the original culture without anyone being aware of the change in identity’.”

Getting the picture?

HUGE numbers of published studies are based on knowing which cells are being used and tested. And much of the time, the researchers don’t know. They pretend they do, but they don’t.

Their work is completely unreliable.

Everyone involved (for decades) looks the other way.

It’s the secret no one wants to talk about.

Thousands and thousands and thousands of medical studies are useless, and their conclusions are unfounded, and turn out to be random.

This is like saying, “Well, we built all those buildings in the city, but the concrete we used was probably cardboard. Let’s not talk about it. Let’s just wait and see what happens.”

Millions of patients who are taking drugs are guinea pigs. Researchers originally tested the toxicity of drugs on cells they assumed were relevant, but they were wrong. They said the drugs were safe, but they were working with cells that had no bearing on safety.

This is one reason why, on July 26, 2000, Dr. Barbara Starfield, a highly respected public health expert at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, could conclude, in the Journal of the American Association, that FDA approved medical drugs kill 106,000 Americans every year—which becomes a MILLION deaths per decade.

The original researchers on those drugs pretended they knew what they were doing.

Pretended.

Everything I’m describing and citing in this article?

The FDA knows about it.

The CDC knows about it.

The World Health Organization knows.

National health departments all over the world know.

Medical schools know.

Many doctors know.

Many, many researchers know.

Many hospital executives know.

All pharmaceutical executives know.

Many mainstream medical reporters know.

All medical journals know.

But they continue to promote life-destroying fake news.

Blog that.

Killing Grandma: Over a third of elderly sent to ER due to adverse medication reactions

December 7, 2016

Prescription drug use is at an all-time high here in the United States. In 2015, a report from the Journal of the American Medical Association revealed that approximately three out of every five citizens are currently taking some form of prescription medication. Useage of just about every type of medication has increased since the year 2000. And of course, to go along with our penchant for medication, there has also been a distinct rise in trips to the emergency room. Adverse reactions to prescription drugs also seems to be on the rise.

One of the downfalls of prescription drugs is the potentially hazardous effects they may produce. The side effects of different medications can vary wildly. A study conducted by the CDC has revealed that 1 out every 250 visits to the ER is because of a drug reaction in both 2013 and 2014. This was a significant increase from the years 2005 and 2006 — the last time drug reactions were studied.

Estimates for children, teens and young adults have remained about the same; however, the number of older patients visiting the ER thanks to a medication reaction has made a substantial climb. Older Americans are being affected by adverse reactions in much higher numbers now than ever before — even when adjustments are made for population increases.

In fact, of all visits to the ER for drug reactions, about 35 percent of the patients are 65 years of age or older. That’s nearly a ten percent increase! In the 2005 and 2006 study periods, elderly patients accounted for just 26 percent of ER visits related to drug reactions.

According to Nadine Shehab, a senior scientist in the CDC’s Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion, and her co-authors, there are a few key culprits behind this increase — namely, anticoagulants (blood-thinners for preventing blood clots), antibiotics, diabetes medicines, opioids (pain medications) and antipsychotics.

In an email, Dr. Daniel Budnitz, the senior author of the paper and director of the CDC’s Medication Safety Program, noted that the fact that these are the same drugs identified a decade ago for commonly causing trips to the ER should be a cause for concern. Dr. Budnitz states that safety interventions should be more focused on these particular types of drugs.

In their research, the team focused on the reasons why people are visiting the emergency room, with a focus on drug reactions. They analyzed data from 58 different emergency rooms and then created estimates for the population as a whole. The team then compared this data to their estimates from 2005 to 2006. Based on their surveillance of 42, 585 cases, the researchers posit that roughly 4 out of every 1,000 Americans goes to the ER due to an adverse reaction to a drug. More than a quarter of these patients will be hospitalized, or about 27 percent.

Overall, the estimates indicated that diabetes medication, blood thinners and antibiotics led to nearly half of the ER visits for drug reactions.

In children under 5, antibiotics were the most common cause for the ER visit, at about 56 percent of the total. The same held true for older children and teens, though it was a slightly smaller majority with only 32 percent.

More than a third of all visits to the emergency room for medication reactions occured in the elderly population. Older adults also had a much higher rate of hospitalization. Some of the ill effects patients experienced included hemorrhages from anticoagulants, severe allergic reactions to antibiotics, and hypoglycemia with neurological effects from diabetes drugs.

Another study published last year, in the journal PLOS One, found that an increasing number of Americans are being prescribed multiple medications concurrently. They found that many patients were taking medications without their doctors’ knowledge and some were even taking dangerous combintations of drugs.

Timothy P. Ryan, founder of Sano Informed Prescribing, a health care technology company, noted that between the aging population and the rising number of prescriptions per patient, these study results are sadly not that surprising. Ryan notes that when patients are cared for by multiple physicians, there is often an incomplete view of their drug use, so the ER visits are really the result of a much larger issue.

Ryan says,  “Americans are increasingly overmedicated.”

The 8 Most Dangerous Medicines on Earth… Are You Taking Any Of These?

Dangerous medicine

S.D. Wells
August 30, 2016

“It’s time to take your medicine, honey.” “But Mom, it’s making me feel weird and horrible, and I’m not getting any better.” “Well, it’s what the doctor prescribed, so it’s what we have to do.” Have you ever been told to listen to your gut? There’s a reason for that. Actually, several reasons.

Many “Western” medicines are made in laboratories using chemicals and are highly experimental, and worse yet, they’re never tested on humans, except when they’re actually prescribed, applied, or injected into them. Humans are the ultimate guinea pigs in America, while Big Pharma pockets trillions in profit. How did this all come to be? Simple answer: After WWII, Nazi scientists were hired fresh out of prison to work on pharmaceuticals, vaccines, chemotherapy, and chemical food additives, in order to fuel the most insidious business on earth–allopathic medicine. It’s no conspiracy theory either. The horror that took place at the Holocaust in Germany was continued, on a lesser scale, in the United States, for money.

Think about it. There is NO OTHER REASON our U.S. based pharmaceutical companies hired convicted mass murderers to fill the highest positions at Bayer, BASF, and Hoechst. Fritz ter Meer, convicted of mass murder, served just 5 prison years, then conveniently became the chairman of Bayer’s supervisory board (yes, THAT Bayer–that makes children’s medications and the most popular aspirin). Carl Wurster of BASF helped manufacture Zyklon-B gas, the powerful pesticide used to execute millions of Jews–this freak went to work on chemotherapy, the biggest medical scam of the century. Kurt Blome, who admitted to killing Jews with “gruesome experiments,” was hired in 1951 by the U.S. Army Chemical Corps to work on chemical warfare. Get it?

In other words, Big Pharma’s evil seeds, which the FDA calls medicine, were first planted in the United States 65 years ago. Many of the “mad scientists” who tortured innocent human beings in the Holocaust were hired and promoted by U.S. Presidents to catapult what we call “Western Medicine,” and its ultimate goal of creating sickness, and then treating its symptoms for profit.

Take heed, my friends, because THESE are the 8 most DANGEROUS MEDICINES on Planet Earth. It’s called the “War Against the Weak.”

War Against the Weak

#1. SSRIs – highly experimental, never proven safe or effective, and can completely block serotonin, leading to thoughts of suicide and even homicidal and suicidal acts of horror.

#2. MMR vaccine (measles, mumps, rubella) – associated with causing autism and other central nervous system disorders and a myriad of health issues. When the LIVE measles virus gets into the body, the immune system is severely compromised, and the other chemical adjuvants and genetically modified ingredients attack the child, causing permanent and sometimes fatal results.

#3. Influenza vaccine (flu shot) – contains up to 50,000 parts per billion of mercury, in addition to formaldehyde, MSG, and aluminum. Can cause pregnant women to abort and have miscarriages

#4. Antibiotics – annihilate good gut bacteria and therefore severely decreases immune system. Doctors inappropriately prescribe antibiotics for viral infections and make matters much worse!

#5. HPV vaccine (human papillomavirus) – known to send teens into anaphylactic shock and comas. Thousands of families have sued the manufacturers for millions of dollars for chronic and permanent health damages.

#6. Chemotherapy – annihilates the immune system and often leads to the body forming new cancers, especially in the blood. Nazi scientists knew in the 1950s that chemotherapy only makes cancer temporarily recede, only to come back with a vengeance in other parts of the body! (Still, Western Medicine calls this successful)

#7. “RotaTeq” rotavirus vaccine – extremely toxic (oral) vaccine contains LIVE rotavirus strains (G1, G2, G3, G4, and P1), plus highly toxic polysorbate 80 and FETAL BOVINE SERUM. Also contains parts of porcine circovirus – a virus that INFECTS PIGS.

#8. Polio vaccine (oral and injected with needle) – It’s a cold, hard, scary fact that millions of Americans were injected with CANCER when they got the polio vaccine. Plus, the oral and nasal versions of the vaccine have been spreading polio in India and leaving many children paralyzed for life.

Sure, people are paranoid of infectious diseases and for good reason. The American medicine industry has exacerbated the WORST cases on record to scare the living hell out of everyone into injected their known carcinogens for “protection.” It’s racketeering and it’s illegal, but the vaccine manufacturers are immune to lawsuits, protected by a massive slush fund and their own secret court of law. If you or your child is severely injured by vaccines, you CANNOT sue the vaccine manufacturer. You will have to take that case to the Office of Special MASTERS of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, which is commonly called the highly secretive “Vaccine Court.” This corrupt “court” administers a no-fault compensation program (yes, you read that correctly), that serves as an alternative to your Constitutional rights. Established back in 1986, after drug companies lost massive profits in high-profile lawsuits due to vaccines severely damaging a number of children, who suffered seizures and brain damage, linked to the DPT vaccine.

Before you EVER consider swallowing or injecting chemical toxins called “medicine” again, visit at least one Naturopathic Physician and find out if the health problem or problems are nutritional based, because odds are, they are!

So many people have become used to going to the doctor and walking out with a prescription any time they have an ailment. That has led to antibiotic overuse, which causes more serious problems. Naturopath Ann Boroch discusses the danger with antibiotic overuse and offers some alternatives when you likely have something other than a bacterial infection. Learn the increasing dangers with antibiotics use.

How Essential Oils Can Help Replace Overused Antibiotics & Stop Drug Resistant Superbugs

Essential oils

Antibiotic resistance is rapidly reaching the scale of a global health crisis. More and more people are being treated with “last resort” antibiotics, and the head of the World Health Organization, Margaret Chan, recently warned that the explosion of increasingly virulent drug-resistant microbes may eventually mean the “end of modern medicine.”

“The rise of antibiotic resistance is a global health crisis,” Chan said. “More and more governments recognize (it is) one of the greatest threats to health today.”

One thing that ordinary consumers can do to stem this tide, is to avoid unnecessary antibiotic treatments by using natural alternatives.

Why antibiotics are bad for your health

One of the most common misuses of antibiotics is when doctors prescribe them for viral problems, such as a cold or the flu, or minor bacterial infections that might otherwise have cleared up on their own.

Essential oils provide numerous benefits over antibiotics. They do not contribute to the evolution of drug resistance, preserving antibiotics for truly serious or life-saving uses – particularly if you avoid always using the same essential oil for every infection. In addition, essential oils do not cause wholesale destruction of your body’s good microbes – “microbiome” – the way antibiotics do. Antibiotic use is increasingly being linked with a variety of systemic health problems, probably due to disruption of the many subtle processes that our microbiomes perform for our bodies. Even taking probiotics after antibiotics is not enough to undo this damage.

So, for your health and for the health of society as a whole, here are some of the top antimicrobial essential oils. Studies have shown many of these to be as effective as antibiotics, and in some cases more so.

The top antibacterial oils

Tea tree oil is one of the easiest essential oils for a beginner to use. Unlike most essential oils, it can safely be applied directly to the skin, without first being diluted with a carrier oil. It has shown potent activity against viruses, bacteria and other microbes.

Eucalyptus oil, in addition to its antimicrobial effects, has been shown to speed wound healing and to protect injuries from exposure to air (much like a bandage).

Does your natural toothpaste contain peppermint essential oil, and not just peppermint flavor? It should! Peppermint is a potent antimicrobial and antiviral agent.

Lavender oil has shown antibacterial and antiseptic properties. It is particularly effective in speeding the healing of minor skin injuries including cuts, wounds, burns and sunburns, and keeping them from scarring. It is also an effective treatment for inflammatory and bacterial skin conditions including acne and psoriasis.

The common kitchen herbs oregano and thyme, in their essential oil form, are potent antibacterials that have both shown effectiveness against staph bacteria, including the MRSA superbug. Oregano has also been found to be effective against E. coli and salmonella.

We Now Know HOW Antibiotics Kill off Good Bacteria in the Gut

Leading To A Common And Often Fatal Health Problem

Bacteria

January 25, 2016

A single course of antibiotics can cause Clostridium difficile, or C. diff – a bacterium that can lead to a condition known as Clostridium difficile colitis – to flourish in the gut, according to researchers at North Carolina State University.

The discovery was made during experiments with mice. The scientists say the antibiotics were found to kill off bacteria responsible for altering bile acid.

C. Diff is a dormant spore bacteria that must germinate and become growing bacteria to colonize the gut. Certain antibiotics lead to a higher risk of C. diff, especially in hospital patients. For the study, Casey Theriot, an assistant professor of infectious disease at NC State, sought to find out just how C. diff spores interacted with natural bacterial environment (microbiota) of the gut.

“We know that within a healthy gut environment, the growth of C. diff is inhibited,” Theriot says. “But we wanted to learn more about the mechanisms behind that inhibitory effect.” [1]

Primary bile acids are created in the liver from cholesterol and help the body to digest food and absorb fat. Bile also controls the metabolism of lipoproteins, drugs, glucose, and energy. These acids travel through the intestinal tract to the large intestine where they are converted into secondary bile acids by other bacteria.

Scientists identified 26 primary and secondary bile acids in mice and recorded their levels before and after treatment with an antibiotic.

The team added C. diff spores to concentrations of the acids and discovered that primary bile acids allow spores to germinate, regardless of antibiotic treatment, including the broad-spectrum antibiotics cefoperazone, clindamycin, and vancomycin. [2]

When the spores passed into the mice’s large intestine, where normal gut bacteria create secondary bile acids, the researchers found that those secondary bile acids stopped C. diff from growing. After antibiotic treatment – which killed those bacteria and the secondary bile acids – the C. diff was able to quickly grow.

“These findings are a first step in understanding how the gut microbiota regulates bile acids throughout the intestine,” says Theriot. “Hopefully they will aid the development of future therapies for C. difficile infection and other metabolically relevant disorders such as obesity and diabetes.” [3]

In a February 2015 press release, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that C. diff caused nearly half a million infections in the United States in a single year. About 29,000 people died within 30 days of diagnosis, and about 15,000 thousand deaths were believed to have been directly caused by C. diff infections.
