Keeping Up With Complex, Unsafe Vaccine Requirements for Kids
With the new school year just around the corner, districts are recommending your children submit to a longer, more complex list of needless vaccines than ever before. These days, it's a dozen at an estimated cost of more than $1,200, even though vaccines may do nothing to protect them from the diseases to which they're being inoculated.
In fact, some children have received vaccines for mumps and whooping cough this year and still caught both anyway. Unfortunately, that's been enough justification for the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices to schedule a new round of vaccinations for kids before they reach puberty.
And, when vaccine supplies get low, the CDC arbitrarily suspend their vaccine rules for a time, like those for meningitis, now recommended for high school and college students.
By the way, that same CDC committee recently recommended a new round of vaccines for pre-pubescent girls to protect them from human papillomavirus (HPV). The cost for this worthless three-stage vaccine regimen concocted by Merck called Gardasil: In excess of $2 billion and all of it for a worthless vaccine.
Like the flu, HPV is almost completely avoidable without a vaccine. Fact is, maintaining a high level of immune integrity is the key through the basics of emotional balancing, optimized nutrition, avoidance of toxins, proper sleep, exercise and hydration.

Why Soy Can Damage Your Health
Newest Research On Why You Should Avoid Soy - by Sally Fallon & Mary G. Enig, Ph.D. - What was once a minor crop, listed in the 1913 US Department of Agriculture (USDA) handbook not as a food but as an industrial product, now covers 72 million acres of American farmland.
The Whole Soy Story
In The Whole Soy Story, you'll find:
The real reasons why soy is NOT a health food
Shocking personal accounts of real people whose healthand lives were put at risk from eating soy products
Hard evidence linking soy to malnutrition, digestiveproblems, thyroid dysfunction, cognitive decline,reproductive disorders, immune system breakdowns--evenheart disease and cancer
That soy has NEVER been proven safe, and learn thetruth about how misleading propaganda played a hugerole in how it became so popular in America
Get more critical advice about the dangers of soy as author Dr. Kaayla Daniel shares her insights in this exclusive interview with Dr. Mercola.

Soy May Cause Cancer and Brain Damage - Two senior US government scientists have revealed that chemicals in soy could increase the risk of breast cancer in women, brain damage in both men and women, and abnormalities in infants.
The Trouble With Tofu: Soy and the Brain -by John D. MacArthur - "Tofu Shrinks Brain!" Not a science fiction scenario, this sobering soybean revelation is for real. But how did the "poster bean" of the '90s go wrong? Apparently, in many ways -- none of which bode well for the brain.
Soy: Too Good to be True - by Brandon Finucan & Charlotte Gerson - While even in 1966 there was considerable research on the harmful substances within soybeans, you'll be hard pressed to find articles today that claim soy is anything short of a miracle-food. As soy gains more and more popularity through industry advertising, we are moved once again to raise our voice of concern.
Learn The Truth About The Historical Use Of Soy - Just How Much Soy Did Asians Eat? In short, not that much, and contrary to what the industry may claim, soy has never been a staple in Asia. A study of the history of soy use in Asia shows that the poor used it during times of extreme food shortage, and only when the soybeans were carefully prepared (e.g. by lengthy fermentation) to destroy the soy toxins. Yes, the Asians understood soy all right! High Soy Diet During Pregnancy And Nursing May Cause Developmental Changes In Children - Two separate studies -- one in animals and the other in humans, suggest that a diet high in soybeans and other legumes during pregnancy and breastfeeding may have a subtle but long-term impact on the development of children.
Concerns Regarding Soybeans - Some good information abstracted from an article written by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig, Ph.D. for Health Freedom News in September of 1995.
Soy Can Cause Severe Allergic Reactions - Soy, like its botanically-related cousin the peanut, could be responsible for severe, potentially fatal, cases of food allergy, particularly in children with asthma who are also very sensitive to peanuts.
Soy Supplements Fail to Help Menopause Symptoms - Supplements that contain concentrated phytoestrogens -- plant-based estrogens found in soy -- do not appear to improve mood, memory or menopause symptoms in women over age 45.
20/20 Feature on the Dangers of Soy - The ABC television news program 20/20 aired a feature story Friday June 8, 2000 on the dangers of soy.
Soy Formulas and the Effects of Isoflavones on the Thyroid - Environmental scientist and long-time campaigner against soy-based infant formulas, Dr Mike Fitzpatrick, warns about the risk of thyroid disease in infants fed soy formulas, high soy consumers and users of isoflavone supplements.
Pregnant Women Should Not Eat Soy Products - In-utero exposure to genistein increases the incidence of breast tumors.
Soybean Crisis - Jane Phillimore of The Observer addresses some of the concerns raised by new research about the safety of soy.
Response To Those Who Believe Soy Is Healthy - In a recent Letter to the Editor of the Townsend Letter, Sally Fallon and Dr. Mary Enig make the case that soy is not the health food that it is claimed to be. The soy campaign is, in fact, a case study in the use of propaganda to promote commercial interests, they allege.
Soy Can Lead to Kidney Stones - Those who are prone to the painful condition known as kidney stones may become more vulnerable to it through the consumption of soy.
Chemical in Soybeans Causes Sexual Dysfunction in Male Rats - Exposure to genistein, a chemical found in soybeans, led to abnormal reproductive organs and sexual dysfunction in rats. Take a hint and avoid all but fermented soy products if you want to decrease your chances of having fertility problems.
Experts Dispute JAMA Soy Infant Formula Study - The results of study on soy formula are being disputed for several reasons, including the omission of negative findings regarding the product.
Medical ProblemsCaused by Soy:Legal Action Request
Soy Milk Is Safe! That Is What the Formula Industry Says - A biased study funded by the formula industry attempts to polish the image of their product. Don't be deceived though, as soy formula remains one of the worst foods you can feed your child.
Australian Pediatric Soy Protein Formula Policy - Read about the abundance of reasons why conventional milk infant formula is preferred over soy formula, as well as the dangers of feeding soy formulas to infants.
Soy Baby Formula Linked to Behavioral Problems - Elevated levels of manganese in soy infant formula may be related to attention-related disorders.
How Safe is Soy Infant Formula? - New research suggests high concentrations of manganese found in soybean-based baby formula can lead to brain damage in infants and altered behaviors in adolescents.
Soy Formula Exposes Infants To High Hormone Levels - The daily exposure of infants to phyto-estrogens (chemicals that possess wide ranges of hormonal and non-hormonal activities) who consume soy formulas was 6-11 times higher than adults consuming soy foods.
Soy Weakens Your Immune System - There is one thing that is quite clear, soy formula should never be administered to an infant. Find out why.
Soy Milk is Gaining Popularity in America - Soy milk, once a niche market, is now making its way into mainstream America. Find out why soy is not the health food it is promoted to be.

European Doctors Support Warning on Toxic Trio of Asthma Drugs
Late last year, the FDA asked the manufacturers of three common asthma medications -- Advair, Serevent and Foradil -- to include safety warnings about a patient's increased chances of severe and fatal asthma attacks. That toxic trio of beta-agonist drugs has prompted European experts to request the very same warning.
European patients use any one of those drugs as a single treatment and without an inhaler, a worrying trend, says one researcher. Children make up the bulk of chronic asthma sufferers, and are typically treated with one beta-agonist drug.
Makes great sense, considering a 2003 drug trial of salmeterol (Serevent) on 26,000 patients was halted when early results showed more people died from respiratory ailments after taking salmeterol than a placebo. No surprise, such prohibitions haven't been enforced.
Some safer, natural treatments for your asthma that have nothing to do with taking a toxic drug:
Balance your ratio of omega-3 fats by taking a high quality krill oil daily.
Avoid all processed milk products.
Get moving on an exercise program.
Retool your diet to fit the foods your body burns best based on its unique metabolic type.

Air Fresheners May Damage Your Lungs
Air fresheners have been linked to cancer in the past, and this new study from the National Institutes of Health found that chemicals in not only air fresheners, but also toilet deodorizers and mothballs, can harm the lungs.
The chemical, 1,4-dichlorobenzene or 1,4-DCB, is in the blood of 96 percent of Americans. The 10 percent of people with the highest blood levels of 1,4-DCB did 4 percent worse in a test of lung function than the 10 percent of people with the lowest blood levels. Aside from being problematic for people with asthma or lung problems, the test is a risk factor for heart disease, stroke, lung cancer and death from any cause.
How can you tell if 1,4-DCB is in your home? Simple -- it smells like mothballs. It's best not to introduce any chemicals into your home, however, even those that may smell good.
If you are trying to eliminate unpleasant scents, try to prevent them from occurring in the first place, and if you are using air fresheners because you like the scent, therapeutic essential oils are an excellent, and safe, alternative.

Toxic Contact Lens Cleaner a Long-Term Problem
Evidently, Bausch and Lomb knew they had a problem with their toxic contact lens solutions long before the most recent reports of Fusarium keratitis, the fungal eye infection that can cause blindness.
As drug companies do when trying to fend off controversy -- think Merck and the Vioxx debacle -- Bausch and Lomb and its competitors took great pains to minimize any past concerns raised by scientists about multipurpose solutions (designed for cleaning, storing and disinfecting contact lenses) raised as long as nine years ago.
Now, the FDA has woken up to the problem and promised to re-evaluate their testing methods. Meanwhile, some researchers believe some contact lens solutions, when used with specific lenses, could cause corneal staining, also making patients more vulnerable to infection.
If all these new concerns, on top of the recent ones, make you more leery about using contact lenses in the future, I'm not surprised. But you don't have to be saddled with glasses or contacts either. You can get rid of both for good by learning the important visual habits that restored my eyesight in the Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally program.

Another Bird Flu Scam
Just as some states are having second thoughts about funding an imaginary flu pandemic with real tax dollars, here comes a cheaper flu vaccine under development by GlaxoSmithKline that may hit the consumer market as early as next year.
Projected to cost no more than the standard flu shot (about $7), Glaxo's H5N1 vaccine contains less than 4 micrograms of antigen (coming from chicken eggs). Two immunizations did the trick, the company claims, protecting 80 percent of patients participating in clinical trials.
The real reason why Glaxo jumped into the bird flu vaccine market: Business analysts project the H5N1 vaccine could add as much as 5 percent to the company's long-term earnings and $2 billion in annual sales. That might put a crimp into Tamiflu sales and all future profits U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld may earn as a former board member of Gilead Sciences.
Whether this "new and improved" vaccine will have the same deadly effect as Tamiflu does, however, is anyone's guess. To avoid the inherent dangers of vaccines without a health-harming drug, I urge you to review my quick tips for strengthening your immune system today.

The Best: Deadly Poisons Ingested or Inhaled
I'm sharing this interesting list of the 10 deadliest poisons from the latest issue of Wired for a reason. With a little luck, you won't be exposed to anthrax, sarin gas, ricin or tetrodotoxin, but you're probably well aware of at least two poisons: Mercury and botulinum.
What's insidious about mercury and botulinum is how both of these deadly toxins hide in plain sight, one contained in "safe" vaccines that harm the minds of babies and the other used to smooth wrinkles and "cure" excessive sweating.
Just a reminder, you're exposed to common toxins every day that pose a far greater threat on your health than amatoxin or something called compound 1080. Among them:

Will Pfizer's Insulin Inhaler Be Another Drug Debacle?
Pfizer has developed a diabetes treatment called Exubera, which is the first that allows diabetics to inhale insulin as a powder, rather than inject it in liquid form. But some worry that it could be hard to use, or that it could cause lung damage. Pfizer executives predicted that Exubera would bring in $2 billion a year in sales, but increasing distrust of the treatment among patients and physicians could result in that being a vast overestimate.
Pfizer is searching for a new "blockbuster" drug now that Lipitor faces competition from generic drugs and Zoloft has lost its patent protection.Some patients in clinical trials of Exubera suffered lung problems, and it is not recommended for patients who perform poorly on a lung-function test. Those who take the drug need to have their lungs tested periodically. The list price is also significantly higher than that of injected insulin, and its large size (about that of a can of tennis balls) and fixed dosage may make patients wary of using it.
Business Week July 16, 2006
Popular Science November 2005
Dr. Mercola's Comment:
I recently warned you about four new diabetes drugs in the pipeline, each projected to make more than $1 billion. But one of those drugs, Pfizer's Exubera, probably won't hit its projected sales mark, and that's a good thing too.
Unless you are a physician you would not likely realize that Pfizer is spending big dollars to promote this drug, as it is hitting most of the major medical journals. So there is a major push to promote this drug.
Exubera has nothing to do with better health or treating the underlying problems associated with diabetes. Diabetes is an artifact of poor lifestyle choices including processed foods and inadequate exercise.
Nearly every conventional physician is clueless about how to treat type 2 diabetes. They just don't get it and actually use therapies like insulin that are the very cause of the problem.
This is not an insignificant issue for me as my dad's side of my family are pasta-loving Italians, and most every one of my aunts and uncles, as well as my father, have come down with or died from diabetes.
Many years ago, I followed the recommendation of a diet and exercise plan that was in absolute conflict with my protein metabolic type status. I gained 20 pounds, and my blood sugar shot up to 126. I had developed diabetes. (The ideal fasting blood glucose should be around 87. I become nervous when my patients have numbers over 100. Traditional standards state that diabetes is formally diagnosed at 120.)
But fortunately, contrary to what you may have heard, there is a cure for type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes. Even the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine has acknowledged that diet and exercise can completely eliminate diabetes. This is one of the reasons I am so passionate about Metabolic Typing -- it worked not only for my patients but also for me personally.
If you or someone you know has diabetes, you might want to review this Web site's many articles on the subject.

Fosamax Causing Merck More Problems Than Vioxx
Before jurors awarded John McDarby $4.5 million in his federal lawsuit against Merck last week, the stock price of the former Vioxx manufacturer had climbed 14 percent. Immediately after the verdict, however, Merck's value dipped 3 percent. But, that was long before yesterday's punitive award.
With some 10,000 lawsuits, and counting, in the pipeline, business analysts estimate the damage Merck did to its Vioxx customers may cost them anywhere from $20-50 billion before it's all over...
But those estimates didn't take into account a new lawsuit Merck's faces, citing negligence in promoting its second-leading drug, Fosamax, a drug I first warned you about eight years ago. The lawsuit, filed in Ft. Myers, Fla., argues Fosamax is a dangerous product because it can cause osteonecrosis, a condition that causes your jaw bone to rot and decay.
Fosamax's existing labeling, the plaintiff says, provides no adequate warning of the drug's side effects. Why? It's a member of the nitrogenous biophosphonate family of drugs used for chemotherapy that have been associated with osteonecronosis. (By the way, the newer drug, Boniva, is in the same class of drugs as Fosamax, and isn't all that different...)
With Vioxx, Merck can get away with a lot of hogwash and say many things can cause heart attacks, not just Vioxx. But, with Fosamax, osteonecrosis of the jawbone is not caused by smoking or eating French fries.
Oral surgeons and many dentists started noticing this link five years ago. Last month, the American Association of Endodontists issued a position statement recommending that dental surgeons should check whether patients are on Fosamax and if so to look for this condition. This has become so common that dentists are now referring this condition as fossy jaw.
Merck grosses $3 billion -- that's with a B -- dollars a year from this deceptive scam. And, just think, some analysts believe Fosamax could be a bigger problem for Merck than Vioxx.

Are Needle Biopsies Safe?
Needle biopsies, widely used and accepted as a safe and reliable test for cancer, may not be safe after all. The concern is that the technique may accidentally cause malignant cells to break away from a tumor, allowing it to spread to other areas of the body. And according to a study from the John Wayne Cancer Institute, it appears that a needle biopsy may increase the spread of cancer by 50 percent compared to patients who received excisional biopsies, also known as lumpectomies.
Needle Biopsies and the Liver
And the issue spreads beyond needle biopsies for breast cancer. A British Medical Journal study reported that fine-needle biopsies of the liver might allow the tumor to be "seeded" in the track of the needle (along with presenting a small increased risk of hemorrhage). While some authors say the seeding occurs in only .003 percent to .07 percent of cases, others say that it occurs .4 percent to 5.1 percent of the time. Using these estimates, it's possible that one in 20 needle biopsies of the liver result in a new tumor.
"Your Cancer has Spread"
Imagine hearing those words as a patient, and then learning that the spread occurred not because of a natural progression but because of the very diagnostic technique that doctors performed. Aside from the emotional aspects a patient must face upon hearing this news, they will likely be subjected to aggressive radiation and chemotherapy, all with their own set of side effects, to stop the spread.
This may be the reason why the John Wayne Cancer study, and the one in the British Medical Journal, have not been widely published by the media--the outrage the public would feel upon learning such news, that needle biopsies may not actually be safe, could bring upon demands for safer diagnostic techniques and class-action lawsuits galore, all upsetting the "smooth-flowing cancer industry."
Other Diagnostic Options
To patients looking to avoid needle biopsies, other options (each with their own ups and downs) do exist. These include:
Imaging techniques such as CT, MRI, PET scans and ultrasound.
Thermography, which detects abnormal patterns of heat emanating from areas of high metabolic activity.
The main finding of this study is quite alarming: Needle biopsies that are commonly used in the diagnosis of cancer may actually increase the spread of the cancer by 50 percent compared to patients who do not receive it.
If you carefully read Dr. Ralph Moss' full report you will find it delves more extensively into the history of needle biopsies, and you learn that their use has progressively grown over the past 80 years despite warnings from some experts as far back as 1940. Additionally, a more recent study in the British Medical Journal that warned against needle biopsies of the liver for similar reasons was simply dismissed as tabloid journalism.
I believe one of the best non-toxic options to needle biopsies may be thermography. I ran a review on thermography about this technique about five years ago. While I believe it is likely diagnostic cancer tools will always be necessary, the ideal scenario is to never need them. Why not reduce your chances of ever getting cancer, and therefore eliminate your need for a biopsy, in the first place? In the United States, over 175 people learn that they have cancer every hour, but that simply does not have to be the case.
Considering how important this issue is for nearly everyone you know it might be a good one to forward to your friends and relatives. You can easily do this by using the E-mail to a friend button in the upper right hand section of this page, just under the search box. You can make a larger impact if you write them a personal message in the e-mail as to why they should seriously consider the advice--and why they may want to subscribe to the newsletter.
Here are some key strategies that will help you prevent cancer:
Control your insulin levels. Make certain that you limit your intake of as much processed foods and sugars as possible.
Get appropriate amounts of animal based omega-3 fats and make sure you use cod liver oil if you don't have regular access to sun exposure.
Get appropriate exercise. One of the primary reasons exercise works is that it drives your insulin levels down and controlling insulin levels is one of the most powerful ways to reduce your cancer risks.
Normalize your vitamin D levels with a safe amount of sun exposure. This works by primarily by optimizing your vitamin D level. If you have regular access to sun exposure than you should use fish oil, not cod liver oil, as your primary source of omega-3 fats. Ideally it would be best to monitor your vitamin D level.
Eat according to your metabolic type. This is very much underappreciated as to just how potent an anti-cancer effect this is. When we treat cancer patients in our clinic this is one of the most powerful anti-cancer strategies we have.
Have a tool to permanently erase the neurological short-circuiting that can activate cancer genes. Even the CDC states that 85 percent of disease is caused by emotions. It is likely that this factor may be more important than all the other physical ones listed here, so make sure this is addressed. Energy psychology seems to be one of the best approaches and my particular favorite tool, as you may know, is Emotional Freedom Technique.
Only 25 percent of people eat enough vegetables, so by all means eat as many vegetables as you are comfortable with. Ideally they should be fresh and organic. However, please understand that frequently fresh vegetables are healthier than organic ones that are older and wilted in the grocery store and they are certainly better than no vegetables, so don't use that as an excuse. If you are a carb metabolic type you may need up to 300 percent more vegetables than a protein metabolic type.
Make sure you are not in the two-thirds of the population who are overweight and maintain an ideal body weight.
Get enough high-quality sleep.
Reduce your exposure to environmental toxins like pesticides, household chemical cleaners, synthetic air fresheners and air pollution.
Boil, poach or steam your foods, rather than frying or charbroiling them.

How You Can Support Important U.S. Dietary Legislation
Though I ask you rarely to send a letter to your Congressman about health issues, this alert I received about a recent Senate bill (S. 3546), that would treat dietary supplements more like drugs sold behind and over the counter, is an important exception.
Should it be passed by Congress, the Dietary Supplement and Non-Prescription Drug Consumer Protection Act would amend America's existing Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act so that companies would be compelled by law to report side effects of dietary supplements along with over-the-counter drugs to the FDA.
The act also encourages consumers to discuss any adverse reactions with their doctors prior to sending a complaint to a retailer or manufacturer, which could lead to a suppression of valid, useful information that could be related to many things, for example, like a drug side effect or a food intolerance, not a supplement.
Although I generally believe people rely far too much on supplements as a crutch for not eating the healthiest foods, some are necessary. And, if you desire to take responsibility for your own health, it's important that you retain the freedom to choose and buy the supplements you want -- and in the concentrations you prefer.
If you support freedom of choice, the links below will take you to a page that will help you quickly and easily send a letter to your Congressman.

A hidden danger to your health and freedom, masquerading as food safety and protection, the US Congress is about pass into law, one way or another, unless we act now!
Cancer, Obesity, Diabetes, End of Your Health Choices, Xtra pain, suffering and even premature death.
Where is it Coming From?
CODEX is part of the World Trade Organization -- what Lori Wallach, author of “Whose Trade Organization?” calls the multinational corporate country club -- and its insidious, long-term effort to “harmonize” the world’s food, agriculture and edible health product standards by 2010. Attempts at “HARMonization” have already made inroads through back door politics in the European Union, Norway, Canada and Australia. Already, zinc in Germany costs $54 a bottle and 3-4 days worth of synthetic Vitamin E costs close to $200!
Vitamins and minerals are the first target, although only the tip of the iceberg. Final ratification of these restrictive vitamin and mineral standards’ framework, a prelude to all of the food and health-unfriendly provisions of this multi-headed Hydra, is practically assured at the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission meeting this July 4-9 in Rome. Unless we make a very big noise!
The United States is Next!
A consensus of international watchdog groups tracking this issue agree that these stringent international food rules will most likely be mandated into law here in the US through regional “HARMonization,” once we ratify CAFTA, the Central American Free Trade Agreement and the more expanded hemispheric Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA).
Identical language contained in the SPS (Sanitary PhytoSanitary Measures) in NAFTA, GATT, CAFTA and the FTAA, bind us to make Codex standards law domestically, part of an overall strategy to create a European Union equivalent, called the Western Atlantic Union (WAU), here in the Western hemisphere.
Even merely being a member of the World Trade Organization guarantees ”HARMonization” of our laws with Codex standards. While most of us may not realize it, treaty law supersedes domestic law. Bills such as Rep. Dr. Ron Paul’s HJ27, proposing our withdrawal from the WTO, are currently on the docket, but as long as we are members of this global management initiative, we are obligated to “HARMonize” with world standards, facing stiff trade sanctions for noncompliance.
At the same time, there is a concerted, although veiled, effort here in the U.S. Congress to gut the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), our remaining legal assurance that food supplements are classified as foods, not drugs. Despite this seeming safeguard and natural trade industry assurances, DSHEA is still vulnerable. Canada and other countries already have provisions that make supplements drugs.
How Can This Possibly be Happening?
So, obviously threats to your health choices are multiple and insidious, like the tentacles of a giant, health and freedom-snatching octopus. How can this possibly be happening? Although difficult to believe, to paraphrase Marshall McLuhan, The truth is so outrageous, it is almost impossible to believe.
Keep on reading. This truth is one you definitely need to understand and act upon.
What Will Codex Mean?
New England Journal of Medicine studies showed that 40 percent of Americans value disease prevention and alternative health care so they spend over $13 billion annually with out-of-pocket (non-insurance) money.
Up until this point, compliance with Codex standards has been voluntary. Yet, that is only the start of the “Boiling Frog” strategy. First, as you may have heard, allowable supplements will be reduced to a handful of ultra low-dose, synthetic vitamins and minerals. Then, incredibly -- without public intervention and outcry -- starting this year in phases, CODEX will go on to do these things:
Prohibit the use of any natural substance to prevent, treat or cure disease.
Legalize genetically modified organisms (GMOs), mandate antibiotics and hormones in animal feed.
Hoist allowable pesticides, toxin and drug levels in foods, making organics inaccessible.
Even eventually prohibit the traditional herbs and medicines indigenous cultures have used for thousands of years.
CODEX is not just about vitamins and minerals, although this is the most acute issue today. It will negatively impact agriculture and economies too. It’s predicted that if CAFTA passes, for example, U.S. corn exports to Central America would increase by 10,000 percent in the first year. In the first 10 years after NAFTA went into effect, 1.7 million farmers, who make up the majority of the population there, lost their land.
Who is Behind Codex?
The pharmaceutical, chemical and agribusiness corporations stand to make huge amounts of money from CODEX. Well-funded, massive disinformation campaigns, half-truth, half-lie “spin” websites like http://www.snopes.com/, as well as infiltration and control of trade organizations supposedly designed to protect the health food and supplement industries, are all smoke-and-mirror tactics of these three “Big” interests.
So, if you have heard of CODEX at all, it may have been from industry or government or even trade group assurances that it is a hoax, beneficial to you, or even both. Don’t be misled by the massive disinformation campaign. It’s easy to just go along and rely on the opinions of so-called “experts”, the government and others, but as a veteran health advocate who has worked for years, like Dr. Mercola, to champion Natural Health, I can assure you that this is no time to take anything for granted or allow yourself to be lulled into complacency.
There is enough smoke about this issue – you will be hearing more about it here and elsewhere in the coming weeks – to warrant making this a priority to understand, act on and spread the word.
Who Stands To Gain The Most?
Pharmaceutical, agricultural and chemical companies, including the makers of Vioxx with a litany of 139,000 deaths, just accused by the House Committee on Government Reform of both withholding the truth and releasing misleading information about the increase heart attack dangers of this drug five years ago!
Dr. Sherri Tenpenny’s analysis: “Since it has become an indisputable scientific fact that NUTRITION is the best PREVENTION and CURE of disease, the owners of the “sickness industry” are determined to remove this ECONOMIC THREAT to their MONOPOLY CONTROL … by regulating nutrients out of the open marketplace and under the pharmaceutical umbrella where these nutrients become their property and they can exercise control over their availability.
CODEX is nothing more than “removing of all competition.” The issue is neither “safety” nor “protection.” Beware, for “He who protects you completely also OWNS you completely. i.h.”
Who Stands To Lose The Most?
We do. Our families and ourselves.
If we wait until there are no legal options besides drugs and contaminated foods, and no nutrients or ways to protect ourselves from pesticides, hormones and foreign genes in our food, how will we be able to keep our families and ourselves healthy?

Some States Backing Away From Avian Flu Drugs
Apparently, those "Cry Wolf" warnings about a bird flu epidemic that never came have made some state health officials increasingly leery about stockpiling enough vaccines to guard against an imaginary pandemic.
This awesome story, topping the business section of this morning's USA Today, gathered comments from various state agencies about their plans for meeting federal guidelines by month's end. While 13 states have opted to purchase a full allotment of flu vaccine, a minimum of 16 others remain undecided.
This year's federal plan is to buy 44 million of an estimated 75 million doses of Tamiflu and Relenza needed, with states buying the balance. In the throws of budget-balancing, however, states like Arizona, Oklahoma and Colorado are purchasing only a fraction of the doses the feds claim they need. In fact, one Colorado emergency health official says he wants to see more evidence these drugs will work at all against the bird flu before spending state funds.
A wise choice indeed, considering Tamiflu is a worthless, harmful drug that lines the pockets of a select few, including U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
Some safe and completely natural methods for bolstering your immune system so you'll never need a flu shot:
Wash your hands regularly.
Consume a high-quality krill oil daily.
Eliminate sugar from your diet.

Surgeon General Warns of Secondhand Smoke
By Lauran NeergaardAP Medical Writer
CBN.com –WASHINGTON (AP) -- Separate smoking sections don't cut it: Only smoke-free buildings and public places truly protect nonsmokers from the hazards of breathing in other people's tobacco smoke, says a long-awaited surgeon general's report.
Some 126 million nonsmokers are exposed to secondhand smoke, what U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona repeatedly calls "involuntary smoking" that puts people at increased risk of death from lung cancer, heart disease and other illnesses.
The new report gives new scientific ammunition against those challenges, said Matthew Myers of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.
"There is no longer a scientific controversy that secondhand smoke is a killer," he said. The report "eliminates any excuse from any state or city for taking halfway measures to restrict smoking, or permitting smoking in any indoor workplace."
Among other findings:
-Separating smokers from nonsmokers, cleaning the air and ventilation systems don't eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke.
-There is good evidence that comprehensive smoking bans, like those in New York City and Boston, don't economically hurt the hospitality industry.
-Workplace smoking restrictions not only reduce secondhand smoke but discourage active smoking by employees.
-Secondhand smoke can act on the arteries so quickly that even a brief pass through someone else's smoke can endanger people at high risk of heart disease.
Don't ever smoke around a sick relative, Carmona advised
-Living with a smoker increases a nonsmoker's risk of lung cancer and heart disease by up to 30 percent.
-There isn't proof that secondhand smoke causes breast cancer, although the evidence is suggestive. California earlier this year cited that link in becoming the first state to declare secondhand smoke a toxic air pollutant.
-On the plus side, blood measurements of a nicotine byproduct show that exposure to secondhand smoke has decreased. Levels dropped by 75 percent in adults and 68 percent in children between the early 1990s and 2002. However, not only has children's exposure declined less rapidly, but levels of that byproduct among children are more than twice as high as in nonsmoking adults.

WATER FOR LIFE
The Simple truth is that dehydration can cause disease.
Everyone knows water is good for the body. They seem not to know how essential it is to one's wellbeing. They do not know what happens to the body if it does not receive its daily need of water.
It Is Chronic Unintentional Dehydration That Causes Pain and Disease, Including Cancer In The Body
This information had been methodically and fraudulently concealed until now!
F. Batmanghelidj, M.D.
Water prevents and helps to cure heartburn.Heartburn is a signal of water shortage in the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract. It is a major thirst signal of the human body. The use of antacids or tablet medications in the treatment of this pain does not correct dehydration, and the body continues to suffer as a result of its water shortage.
For more Information, read the book:
Your Body's Many Cries for Water.
Not recognizing heartburn as a sign of dehydration and treating it with antacids and pill medications will, in time, produce inflammation of the stomach and duodenum, hiatal hernia, ulceration, and eventually cancers in the gastrointestinal tract, including the liver and pancreas.
Water prevents and helps to cure arthritis.
Rheumatoid joint pain - arthritis - is a signal of water shortage in the painful joint. It can affect the young as well as the old. The use of pain-killers does not cure the problem, but exposes the person to further damage from pain medications. Intake of water and small amounts of salt will cure this problem.
Water prevents and helps to cure back pain.
Low back pain and ankylosing arthritis of the spine are signs of water shortage in the spinal column and discs - the water cushions that support the weight of the body. These conditions should be treated with increased water intake - not a commercial treatment, but a very effective one. Not recognizing arthritis and low back pain as signs of dehydration in the joint cavities and treating them with pain-killers, manipulation, acupuncture, and eventually surgery will, in time, produce osteoarthritis when the cartilage cells in the joints have eventually all died. It will produce deformity of the spine. It will produce crippling deformities of the limbs. Pain medications have their own life-threatening complications.
Water prevents and helps to cure angina.
Heart pain - angina - is a sign of water shortage in the heart/lung axis. It should be treated with increased water intake until the patient is free of pain and independent of medications. Medical supervision is prudent. However, increased water intake is angina's cure.
Water prevents and helps to cure migraines.
Migraine headache is a sign of water need by the brain and the eyes. It will totally clear up if dehydration is prevented from establishing in the body. The type of dehydration that causes migraine might eventually cause inflammation of the back of the eye and possibly loss of eye sight.
Water prevents and helps to cure colitis.
Colitis pain is a signal of water shortage in the large gut. It is associated with constipation because the large intestine constricts to squeeze the last drop of water from the excrements - thus the lack of water lubrication. Not recognizing colitis pain as a sign of dehydration will cause persistent constipation. Later in life, it will cause fecal impacting: it can cause diverticulitis, hemorrhoids and polyps, and appreciably increases the possibility of developing cancer of the colon and rectum.
Water and salt prevent and helps to cure asthma.
Asthma, which also affects 14 million children and kills several thousand of them every year, is a complication of dehydration in the body. It is caused by the drought management programs of the body. In asthma free passage of air is obstructed so that water does not leave the body in the form of vapor - the winter steam. Increased water intake will prevent asthma attacks. Asthmatics need also to take more salt to break the mucus plugs in the lungs that obstruct the free flow of air in and out of the air sacs. Not recognizing asthma as the indicator of dehydration in the body of a growing child not only will sentence many thousands of children to die every year, but will permit irreversible genetic damage to establish in the remaining 14 million asthmatic children.
Water prevents and helps to cure high blood pressure.
Hypertension is a state of adaptation of the body to a generalized drought, when there is not enough water to fill all the blood vessels that diffuse water into vital cells. As part of the mechanism of reverse osmosis, when water from the blood serum is filtered and injected into important cells through minute holes in their membranes, extra pressure is needed for the "injection process." Just as we inject I.V. "water" in hospitals, so the body injects water into tens of trillions of cells all at the same time. Water and some salt intake will bring blood pressure back to normal! Not recognizing hypertension as one of the major indicators of dehydration in the human body, and treating it with diuretics that further dehydrate the body will, in time, cause blockage by cholesterol of the heart arteries and the arteries that go to the brain. It will cause heart attacks and small or massive strokes that paralyze. It will eventually cause kidney disease. It will cause brain damage and neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease.
Water prevents and helps to cure early adult-onset diabetes.
Adult-onset diabetes is another adaptive state to severe dehydration of the human body. To have adequate water in circulation and for the brain's priority water needs, the release of insulin is inhibited to prevent insulin from pushing water into all body cells. In diabetes, only some cells get survival rations of water. Water and some salt will reverse adult-onset diabetes in its early stages. Not recognizing adult-onset diabetes as a complication of dehydration will, in time, cause massive damage to the blood vessels all over the body. It will cause eventual loss of the toes, feet and legs from gangrene. It will cause eye damage, even blindness.
Water lowers blood cholesterol.
High cholesterol levels are an indicator of early drought management by the body. Cholesterol is a clay-like material that is poured in the gaps of some cell membranes to safeguard them against losing their vital water content to the osmotically more powerful blood circulating in their vicinity. Cholesterol, apart from being used to manufacture nerve cell membranes and hormones, is also used as a "shield" against water taxation of other vital cells that would normally exchange water through their cell membranes.
Good Health Begins in Your Gut ...
Discover the Natural Whole Food That Can Literally Undo Damage to Your Health From Sugar, Grains, Processed Foods, Antibiotics, Aspirin & More
Probiotics are as Crucial as It Gets to YOUR Good Health
Probiotics are health-enhancing bacteria that replenish the microflora in your intestinal track, helping your body to digest and absorb food, as well as fight off many different illnesses and disease.
Is Your Diet Less Than Perfect? Then You Need Probiotic Plus!
Here is just a partial list of symptoms that can often result from an imbalance of bacteria in the intestinal tract:
Gas, Bloating and Indigestion
IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
Diarrhea and/or Constipation
Skin problems such as Acne, Eczema & Psoriasis
Bad Breath and Body Odor
Delayed development in children
Candida Yeast Infections
High Cholesterol Levels
Chronic Fatigue & Fibromyalgia
Frequent Colds and Flu
Let's face it; few, if any of us, can honestly say that we have perfect diets. And just like your lawn, it is wise to "reseed" areas that have become barren for one reason or another.
With Probiotic Plus, you get the optimal formula to successfully "reseed" the microflora in your gut with good bacteria for better overall health.
Why It's Smart to Keep an Extra Bottle On-Hand for Diarrhea or If You Travel Overseas
In addition to their incredible daily benefits, probiotics are incredibly useful when traveling to foreign countries or when eating at suspicious restaurants. Nearly 75% of the US population comes down with some food borne infection every year.
I've found that using a high quality probiotic like Probiotic Plus Formula every 30-60 minutes will typically resolve most cases of acute infectious diarrhea relatively quickly.
I have seen this work so consistently that I advise all my patients traveling overseas to make sure they take a bottle with them when they travel overseas. I can assure you it is always in my shaving kit when I travel overseas.
If You Are Taking Antibiotics Without Probiotics, You Are Taking Unnecessary Risks
Unlike any other probiotic available, Probiotic Plus is the only formula that places the probiotic organisms in a nutrient rich bed of fresh goat's milk.
The goat's milk used for Probiotic Plus is harvested exclusively from goats farmed in the Southwestern part of Washington State. The goats are free range, allowing them to enjoy life the way nature intended.
The goats' food supply is free of pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones and antibiotics to ensure that you get the nutrition of the freshest and highest quality goat milk possible. This laid back lifestyle and unspoiled diet is captured in the gentle and unique production methods used and then transferred into Probiotic Plus' select formula.
When you take the Probiotic Plus Formula, not only do you get over 26 billion good bacteria fighting for your optimal health -- you also receive the many benefits of nutrient rich goat's milk too!
The first probiotic "friendly bacteria" fermented in fresh goat-milk
Contains over 26 billion beneficial microorganisms per serving
Contains culture probiotic strains for added stability and viability
Contains a substrate with naturally occurring minerals, enzymes, and proteins
Contains six strains of probiotics
Is a natural whole food probiotic
Probiotic Plus' is the only formula that uses six strains of probiotics cultured in highly nutritious goat's milk
Lactobacillus acidophilus (two strains)

Bayer Sells AIDS-Infected Drug Banned in U.S. in Europe, Asia
Just to show how you little the FDA has really cared about drug safety, you'll be as upset as I was to watch this recent video clip from MSNBC's Scarborough Country about Bayer selling an AIDS-contaminated drug called Factor VIII to hemophiliacs in this country in the 1980s.
Even worse, despite warnings from the FDA, Bayer officials removed the tainted product from the U.S. market and shipped it to sell in Asia and Europe anyway.
An interesting factoid: When the French government discovered the Bayer coverup going on under their noses, officials who made the decision to bring the tainted to their country were arrested and sent to prison. In America, however, no Bayer official has ever been investigated or indicted.
To demonstrate the level of corruption that has persisted at the federal level for decades -- always weighing dollars versus drug safety -- the late FDA official Dr. Harry Meyer, Jr. told Bayer officials in a meeting that the issue be "quietly solved without alerting the Congress, the medical community and the public."
If you had any reason to believe the FDA was able to protect your health, this awesome video report should remove any doubt.

Take a Drug to ''Beat'' Breast Cancer, Suffer a Fatal Stroke
It's evil and dangerous to play with the lives of the sick by throwing drugs that "cure" one problem, only to leave them vulnerable to many more, but it happens all the time. Such is the case with the osteoporosis drug Evista (raloxifene), once actually promoted for treating cardiovascular disease.
The Eli Lilly drug was found to prevent breast cancer in a study of more than 10,000 postmenopausal women published in today's New England Journal of Medicine, but at the dire expense of trading those odds for an elevated risk of fatal strokes and blood clots.
The incidence of breast cancer among patients who took Evista for five years dropped by a third over the course of the study. The number of deaths among Evista patients that were attributed to fatal strokes, however, was nearly 50 percent higher than for those who took a placebo.
Of course, the coffers of drugmakers would empty very quickly if more patients understood they could virtually eliminate their cancer risks safely and effectively by making some major lifestyle changes that include eating the foods your body burns best based on your unique metabolic type.
