BYU professor’s group accuses U.S. officials of lying about 9/11

BYU professor’s group accuses U.S. officials of lying about 9/11

By Elaine Jarvik
Deseret Morning News
      Last fall, Brigham Young University physics professor Steven E. Jones made headlines when he charged that the World Trade Center collapsed because of "pre-positioned explosives." Now, along with a group that calls itself "Scholars for 9/11 Truth," he’s upping the ante.
      "We believe that senior government officials have covered up crucial facts about what really happened on 9/11," the group says in a statement released Friday announcing its formation. "We believe these events may have been orchestrated by the administration in order to manipulate the American people into supporting policies at home and abroad."
      Headed by Jones and Jim Fetzer, University of Minnesota Duluth distinguished McKnight professor of philosophy, the group is made up of 50 academicians and others.
      They include Robert M. Bowman, former director of the U.S. "Star Wars" space defense program, and Morgan Reynolds, former chief economist for the Department of Labor in President George W. Bush’s first term. Most of the members are less well-known.
 The group’s Web site (www.ST911.org) includes an updated version of Jones’s paper about the collapse of the Twin Towers and a paper by Fetzer that looks at conspiracy theories. The government’s version of the events of 9/11 — that the plane’s hijackers were tied to Osama bin Laden — is its own conspiracy theory, says Fetzer, who has studied the John F. Kennedy assassination since 1992.
      "Did the Bush administration know in advance about the impending attacks that occurred on 9/11, and allow these to happen, to provoke pre-planned wars against Afghanistan and Iraq? These questions demand immediate answers," charges a paper written collectively by Scholars for 9/11 Truth. The group plans to write more papers, and present lectures and conferences.
      "We have very limited resources and no subpoena powers," Fetzer said. "What you have is a bunch of serious scholars taking a look at this and discovering it didn’t add up. We don’t have a political ax to grind."
      Fetzer has doctorates in the history and philosophy of science. "One of the roles I can play here," he said, "is to explain why a certain line of argument is correct or not."
      In his original message to potential members last month, Fetzer warned that joining the group might make them the subject of government surveillance and might get them on various lists of "potential terrorists."
      The group’s charges include:

      • Members of the Bush administration knew in advance that the 9/11 attacks would happen but did nothing to stop them.

      • No Air Force or Air National Guard jets were sent to "scramble" the hijacked planes, which were clearly deviating from their flight plans, although jet fighters had been deployed for scramblings 67 times in the year prior to 9/11. The procedure for issuing orders for scrambling was changed in June 2001, requiring that approval could only come from the Secretary of Defense, but Donald Rumsfeld was not alerted soon enough on 9/11, according to Scholars group.

      • The video of Osama bin Laden found by American troops in Afghanistan in December 2001, in which bin Laden says he orchestrated the attacks, is not bin Laden. The Scholars for 9/11 Truth compared the video with a photo of the "real" bin Laden and argue that there are discrepancies in the ratio of nose-length to nose-width, as well as distance from tip-of-nose to ear lobe.
      The Scholars group hopes that media outlets around the world will ask experts in their areas to examine the group’s findings and assertions. If this were done, they argue, "one of the great hoaxes of history would stand naked before the eyes of the world."
      The group also asks for an investigation of the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings, following up on points made in Jones’s paper, "Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Collapse?" That paper, recently updated, has been posted on Jones’s BYU Web site since last November.
      Jones argues that the WTC buildings did not collapse due to impact or fires caused by the jets hitting the towers but collapsed as a result of pre-positioned "cutter charges." Proof, he says, includes:

      • Molten metal was found in the subbasements of WTC sites weeks after 9/11; the melting point of structural steel is 2,750 degrees Fahrenheit and the temperature of jet fuel does not exceed 1,800 degrees. Molten metal was also found in the building known as WTC7, although no plane had struck it. Jones’s paper also includes a photo of a slag of the metal being extracted from ground zero. The slag, Jones argues, could not be aluminum from the planes because in photographs the metal was salmon-to-yellow-hot temperature (approximately 1,550 to 1,900 degrees F) "well above the melting temperatures of lead and aluminum," which would be a liquid at that temperature.

      • Building WTC7 collapsed in 6.6 seconds, which means, Jones says, that the steel and concrete support had to be simply knocked out of the way. "Explosive demolitions are like that," he said. "It doesn’t fit the model of the fire-induced pancake collapse."

      • No steel-frame, high-rise buildings have ever before or since been brought down due to fires. Temperatures due to fire don’t get hot enough for buildings to collapse, he says.

      • Jones points to a recent article in the journal New Civil Engineering that says WTC disaster investigators at NIST (the National Institutes of Standards and Technology) "are refusing to show computer visualizations of the collapse of the Twin Towers despite calls from leading structural and fire engineers."

      Neither Jones nor other members of the Scholars group suggests who would have planted the explosives, but they argue that the devices could have been operated by remote control.
      Jones says he has received thousands of e-mails from people around the world who either support his ideas or think he’s "nutty," and he still gets about 30 e-mails a day on the topic.
      He continues to do research on cold fusion, which he prefers to call metal-catalyzed fusion "to distinguish it from the claims" of former University of Utah chemistry professors B. Stanley Pons and Martin Fleishmann, "which we do not accept as verified." He reports that his metal-catalyzed fusion work is going well, with three scientific papers published last year.
      Jones will present a talk entitled "9/11 Revisited: Scientific and Ethical Questions" at Utah Valley State College at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 1.

US Journalist Murdered after Writing Article on US-Bush Supreme Court Nominee Judge Alito

 US Journalist Murdered after Writing Article on US-Bush Supreme Court Nominee Judge Alito

by Les Sachs

http://www.opednews.com

New York Times writer and journalist David E. Rosenbaum was just murdered, a mere matter of days after writing a critical article about US President Bush’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Samuel A. Alito, Jr. The article by Rosenbaum helped expose how Alito was long ago an advocate of unrestrained government power.

Web writer Kurt Nimmo wrote an article questioning Rosenbaum’s death, and then Kurt Nimmo suddenly terminated his own long-standing website due to death threats. Mr Nimmo seems to have put his web archives back up for a short time, but in any case the Nimmo article does appear on the Jeff Rense website:

Was NYT’s David Rosenbaum Assassinated?

The brutal murder of journalist Rosenbaum, needs to be considered in the light of other mysterious violent deaths, such as that of journalist Gary Webb, and that of other people who wound up dead after daring to oppose the Bush gang or the US government and its corruption.

The criminal influence of US judges is indeed the most forbidden and taboo topic in US media.

The murder of journalist Rosenbaum, directly after he wrote a critical article about the Bush regime and a federal judge, is also relevant to the US death threats against myself, in revenge for my exposing other scandals involving the Bushes and federal judges.

David Rosenbaum was murdered after criticising Bush’s US Supreme Court nominee Alito. In my own journalism, I have criticised Bush’s Supreme Court candidate J. Harvie Wilkinson III, who was interviewed by President Bush, and then dropped (after publication of my article) in favor of candidate and now Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

Judge Harvie Wilkinson was involved in the cover-up of bribery, fraud and extortion involving 4th circuit federal Judge Robert Payne, in a scheme to benefit the flow of bribery and campaign cash to the George Bush family. Payne ("Judge Robert Payne is my name, Federal bribery is my game"), himself a nominee of the first President Bush, staged a fake legal proceeding to ban my freedom of speech, with Payne’s own friends posing as my lawyers. Judge Payne, his thugs and Bush’s friends, backed their scheme with threats of jail and murder that were made under the cover of Payne’s order banning my freedom of speech, which all forced me to take political refuge in the Netherlands.

MI5 will get new powers to bug MPs

 

MI5 will get new powers to bug MPs

Furious cabinet revolt as Blair gives green light for security services to spy on elected representatives

By Francis Elliott, Whitehall Editor

Published: 15 January 2006

Tony Blair is preparing to scrap a 40-year ban on tapping MPs’ telephones, despite fierce Cabinet opposition, The Independent on Sunday can reveal.

He is expected to formally announce to the Commons within weeks that MPs can no longer be sure that the security services and others will not intercept their communications.

Until now, successive administrations have pledged that there should be no tapping "whatsoever" of MPs’ phones, and that they would be told if it was necessary to breach the ban.

But that convention – known as the Wilson Doctrine, after Harold Wilson, the prime minister who introduced it – is to be abandoned in an expansion of MI5 powers following the London bombings.

MPs should be treated in the same way as other citizens and will be given the same safeguards against wrongful tapping, the Prime Minister will say.

The decision provoked a furious row in the Cabinet just before Christmas, when the Secretary of State for Defence, John Reid, voiced his opposition.

His outburst surprised other ministers, since he is seen as one of Mr Blair’s closest allies and not known for his support for civil liberties.

"Reid demanded to know why on earth we were going down this route," said one government colleague. "It was all the more surprising since you would have thought the MoD is one of the departments most in favour of increased surveillance powers."

A Downing Street spokesman last night said: "The recommendation has been received and will be considered in due course." Mr Blair was last night put on notice that any attempt to tap MPs’ phones would be bitterly opposed in the Commons. Andrew Mackinlay, Labour MP for Thurrock, said it was a "hallmark of a civilised country" that its state did not spy on elected representatives.

"This goes to the heart of what is to have a free Parliament not some privilege enjoyed by MPs. Constituents, pressure groups and other organisations need to know for sure that they are talking to their elected representatives in complete confidence."

He is to press for the Commons’ Committee on Standards and Privileges to urgently investigate the Downing Street plans to ditch the convention.

Professor Peter Hennessy, the Whitehall and constitutional expert, also called on MPs to question Mr Blair’s intentions. "It seems pretty odd to me that they should be doing this," he said.

There has been a marked expansion of surveillance in Britain since 1997. New technology and new laws mean that Britons are among the most spied-on citizens on earth.

Sweeping new powers to snoop on emails, texts and other communications were included in the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000, while satellite technology offers multiple new surveillance opportunities for the secret state.

Mr Blair has confirmed at least three timesthat his government observed the Wilson Doctrine, most recently in 2003 when it became clear that MI5 had been bugging Sinn Fein’s Gerry Adams, who has not taken his seat and so is not formally an MP.

The Quiet Death Of Freedom

 From 11 September 2001 to 30 September 2005, a total of 895 people were arrested in Britain under the Terrorism Act. Only 23 have been convicted of offences covered by the Act. As for real terrorists, the identity of two of the 7 July bombers, including the suspected mastermind, was known to MI5, and nothing was done. And Blair wants to give them more power. Having helped to devastate Iraq, he is now killing freedom in his own country.

By John Pilger

01/05/06 — On Christmas Eve, I dropped in on Brian Haw, whose hunched, pacing figure was just visible through the freezing fog. For four and a half years, Brian has camped in Parliament Square with a graphic display of photographs that show the terror and suffering imposed on Iraqi children by British policies. The effectiveness of his action was demonstrated last April when the Blair government banned any expression of opposition within a kilometre of Parliament. The High Court subsequently ruled that, because his presence preceded the ban, Brian was an exception.

Day after day, night after night, season upon season, he remains a beacon, illuminating the great crime of Iraq and the cowardice of the House of Commons. As we talked, two women brought him a Christmas meal and mulled wine. They thanked him, shook his hand and hurried on. He had never seen them before. "That’s typical of the public," he said. A man in a pin-striped suit and tie emerged from the fog, carrying a small wreath. ""I intend to place this at the Cenotaph and read out the names of the dead in Iraq," he said to Brian, who cautioned him: "You’ll spend the night in cells, mate." We watched him stride off and lay his wreath. His head bowed, he appeared to be whispering. Thirty years ago, I watched dissidents do something similar outside the walls of the Kremlin.

As night had covered him, he was lucky. On 7 December, Maya Evans, a vegan chef aged 25, was convicted of breaching the new Serious Organised Crime and Police Act by reading aloud at the Cenotaph the names of 97 British soldiers killed in Iraq. So serious was her crime that it required 14 policemen in two vans to arrest her. She was fined and given a criminal record for the rest of her life.

Freedom is dying.

Eighty-year-old John Catt served with the RAF in the Second World War. Last September, he was stopped by police in Brighton for wearing an "offensive" T-shirt, which suggested that Bush and Blair be tried for war crimes. He was arrested under the Terrorism Act and handcuffed, with his arms held behind his back. The official record of the arrest says the "purpose" of searching him was "terrorism" and the "grounds for intervention" were "carrying placard and T-shirt with anti-Blair info" (sic).

He is awaiting trial.

Such cases compare with others that remain secret and beyond any form of justice: those of the foreign nationals held at Belmarsh prison, who have never been charged, let alone put on trial. They are held "on suspicion". Some of the "evidence" against them, whatever it is, the Blair government has now admitted, could have been extracted under torture at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib. They are political prisoners in all but name. They face the prospect of being spirited out of the country into the arms of a regime which may torture them to death. Their isolated families, including children, are quietly going mad.

And for what? From 11 September 2001 to 30 September 2005, a total of 895 people were arrested in Britain under the Terrorism Act. Only 23 have been convicted of offences covered by the Act. As for real terrorists, the identity of two of the 7 July bombers, including the suspected mastermind, was known to MI5, and nothing was done. And Blair wants to give them more power. Having helped to devastate Iraq, he is now killing freedom in his own country.

Consider parallel events in the United States. Last October, an American surgeon, loved by his patients, was punished with 22 years in prison for founding a charity, Help the Needy, which helped children in Iraq stricken by an economic and humanitarian blockade imposed by America and Britain. In raising money for infants dying from diarrhoea, broke a siege which, according to Unicef, had caused the deaths of half a million under the age of five. The then Attorney-General of the United States, John Ashcroft, called Dr Dhafir, a Muslim, a "terrorist", a description mocked by even the judge in his politically-motivated, travesty of a trial.

The Dhafir case is not extraordinary. In the same month, three US Circuit Court judges ruled in favour of the Bush regime’s "right" to imprison an American citizen "indefinitely" without charging him with a crime. This was the case of Joseph Padilla, a petty criminal who allegedly visited Pakistan before he was arrested at Chicago airport three and a half years ago. He was never charged and no evidence has ever been presented against him. Now mired in legal complexity, the case puts George W Bush above the law and outlaws the Bill of Rights. Indeed, on 14 November, the US Senate effectively voted to ban habeas corpus by passing an amendment that overturned a Supreme Court ruling allowing Guantanamo prisoners access to a federal court. Thus, the touchstone of America’s most celebrated freedom was scrapped. Without habeas corpus, a government can simply lock away its opponents and implement a dictatorship.

A related, insidious tyranny is being imposed across the world. For all his troubles in Iraq, Bush has carried out the recommendations of a Messianic conspiracy theory called the "Project for a New American Century". Written by his ideological sponsors shortly before he came to power, it foresaw his administration as a military dictatorship behind a democratic façade: "the cavalry on a new American frontier" guided by a blend of paranoia and megalomania. More than 700 American bases are now placed strategically in compliant countries, notably at the gateways to the sources of fossil fuels and encircling the Middle East and Central Asia. "Pre-emptive" aggression is policy, including the use of nuclear weapons. The chemical warfare industry has been reinvigorated. Missile treaties have been torn up. Space has been militarised. Global warming has been embraced. The powers of the president have never been greater. The judicial system has been subverted, along with civil liberties. The former senior CIA analyst Ray McGovern, who once prepared the White House daily briefing, told me that the authors of the PNAC and those now occupying positions of executive power used to be known in Washington as "the crazies". He said, "We should now be very worried about fascism".

In his epic acceptance of the Nobel Prize in Literature on 7 December, Harold Pinter spoke of "a vast tapestry of lies, upon which we feed". He asked why "the systematic brutality, the widespread atrocities, the ruthless suppression of independent thought" of Stalinist Russia was well known in the west while American state crimes were merely "superficially recorded, let alone documented, let alone acknowledged".

A silence has reigned. Across the world, the extinction and suffering of countless human beings can be attributed to rampant American power, "but you wouldn’t know it," said Pinter. "It never happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn’t happening. It didn’t matter. It was of no interest."

To its credit, the Guardian in London published every word of Pinter’s warning. To its shame, though unsurprising, the state television broadcaster ignored it. All that Newsnight flatulence about the arts, all that recycled preening for the cameras at Booker prize-giving events, yet the BBC could not make room for Britain’s greatest living dramatist, so honoured, to tell the truth.

For the BBC, it simply never happened, just as the killing of half a million children by America’s medieval siege of Iraq during the 1990s never happened, just as the Dhafir and Padilla trials and the Senate vote, banning freedom, never happened. The political prisoners of Belmarsh barely exist; and a big, brave posse of Metropolitan police never swept away Maya Evans as she publicly grieved for British soldiers killed in the cause of nothing, except rotten power.

Bereft of irony, but with a snigger, the BBC newsreader Fiona Bruce introduced, as news, a Christmas propaganda film about Bush’s dogs. That happened. Now imagine Bruce reading the following: "Here is delayed news, just in. From 1945 to 2005, the United States attempted to overthrow 50 governments, many of them democracies, and to crush 30 popular movements fighting tyrannical regimes. In the process, 25 countries were bombed, causing the loss of several million lives and the despair of millions more." (Thanks to William Blum’s Rogue State, Common Courage Press, 2005).

The icon of horror of Saddam Hussein’s rule is a 1988 film of petrified bodies in the Kurdish town of Halabja, killed in a chemical weapons attack. The attack has been referred to a great deal by Bush and Blair and the film shown a great deal by the BBC. At the time, as I know from personal experience, the Foreign Office tried to cover up the crime at Halabja. The Americans tried to blame it on Iran. Today, in an age of images, there are no images of the chemical weapons attack on Fallujah in November 2004. This allowed the Americans to deny it until they were caught out recently by investigators using the internet. For the BBC, American atrocities simply do not happen.

In 1999, while filming in Washington and Iraq, I learned the true scale of bombing in what the Americans and British then called Iraq’s "no fly zones". During the 18 months to 14 January, 1999, US aircraft flew 24,000 combat missions over Iraq; almost every mission was bombing or strafing. "We’re down to the last outhouse," a US official protested. "There are still some things left [to bomb], but not many." That was six years ago. In recent months, the air assault on Iraq has multiplied; the effect on the ground cannot be imagined. For the BBC it has not happened.

The black farce extends to those pseudo-humanitarians in the media and elsewhere, who themselves have never seen the effects of cluster bombs and air-burst shells, yet continue to invoke the crimes of Saddam to justify the the nightmare in Iraq and to protect a quisling prime minister who has sold out his country and made the world more dangerous. Curiously, some of them insist on describing themselves as "liberals" and "left of centre", even "anti-fascists". They want some respectability, I suppose. This is understandable, given that the league table of carnage of Saddam Hussein was overtaken long ago by that of their hero in Downing Street, who will next support an attack on Iran.

This cannot change until we, in the west, look in the mirror and confront the true aims and narcissism of the power applied in our name: its extremes and terrorism. The traditional double-standard no longer works; there are now millions like Brian Haw, Maya Evans, John Catt and the man in the pin-striped suit, with his wreath. Looking in the mirror means understanding that a violent and undemocratic order is being imposed by those whose actions are little different from the actions of fascists. The difference used to be distance. Now they are bringing it home.

John Pilger’s new book, Freedom Next Time, will be published in June by Bantam Press.

The Influence of the Pharmaceutical Industry in UK

 

The Influence of the Pharmaceutical Industry

A Report by the Health Committee of the UK House of Commons

Summary & Analysis by Paul Anthony Taylor

The struggle against the business with disease took an interesting turn in the UK recently, when a remarkable report entitled ‘The Influence of the Pharmaceutical Industry’ was published on behalf of the British Government. Compiled by a departmental select committee appointed by the British House of Commons, the 126-page report examines the influence that the pharmaceutical industry has upon the practice of medicine and healthcare in the UK.

Was The Committee’s Report Buried?

Despite the clear importance and groundbreaking nature of this report, its overall impact in the orthodox UK media appears to have been largely negligible. And, even more worryingly, there does not currently appear to be any evidence that the UK Government is intending to act upon the committee’s recommendations.

The exploding costs of orthodox health care alone dictate that a new health care system is urgently needed – but there are even greater reasons for such changes. Scientific breakthroughs in the areas of vitamin research and cellular health led by pioneering researcher Dr Matthias Rath indicate that cardiovascular disease, cancer, Aids and other common diseases could already have been largely eradicated had reliance upon a pharmaceutical drug-based health care system already been changed to focussing upon prevention and eradication of disease via natural means.

So what is the UK Government waiting for?

Evidence is all around us that the pharmaceutical industry is the single greatest obstacle to good health on planet earth. As such, every day that the UK Government dithers over the implementation of this report’s recommendations is not only another day of profits for the pharmaceutical business with disease, but another day in which innocent British people will continue to die needlessly from diseases that are already largely preventable and treatable by vitamins and other natural therapies.

By failing to act upon the recommendations of this report the UK Government is therefore actively participating in and perpetuating the pharmaceutical industry’s business with disease.

The implementation of the recommendations contained in this report could be an important step along the road towards the dismantling of the business with disease, but this will clearly only happen if the British Government are not allowed to ‘bury’ it first.

Good health should not be a right conferred at the whim of governments; it is a human right to which we should all have free access. The sooner that the British Government acts to discontinue the denial of this right to its citizens, the better.

Wide Consultations

During their inquiry the report’s authors interviewed senior managers, scientists and other representatives from Government regulatory departments; representatives from consumer groups and campaign organizations; editors of medical journals; doctors; senior representatives from medical and pharmaceutical colleges and associations; representatives from charities; professors from universities and medical schools; journalists; and senior representatives from the pharmaceutical industry. The evidence that these witnesses produced provides a unique and damning account of the extent to which the pharmaceutical industry exerts control over the practice of medicine in the UK.

Shareholders Before Health

As have so many investigators before them, the report’s authors concluded that the pharmaceutical industry’s ability to put patients’ health before the needs and expectations of its shareholders is questionable. Describing the overall influence of the pharmaceutical industry as “pervasive and persistent”, the committee predictably discovered that the volume, extent and intensity of the industry’s influence impacts not only on clinical medicine and research, but also on patients, regulators, the media, civil servants and politicians. The possibility that some aspects of the industry’s campaigns are covert and their source undeclared is openly stated in the report as being “particularly worrying.”

The Failure Of Regulators, Orthodox Medicine And Government

As a result of their inquiry the committee found that the regulatory system, the medical profession and Government have all failed to ensure that the pharmaceutical industry’s activities are more clearly allied to the interests of patients.

The MHRA, for example, who are responsible for regulating m edicines, healthcare products and medical equipment in the UK, come in for particular criticism, and are described in the report as having a poor history in recognizing drug risks, poor communication and lack of public trust.

As the world’s third largest direct exporter of pharmaceuticals, the UK pharmaceutical industry is described in the report as being “a jewel in the crown of the UK economy.” Nevertheless, the committee deserve considerable praise for their open criticism of the UK Government and the EU, both of whom are stated as appearing to believe that trade imperatives and health priorities are inseparable, The scope for conflict between health and trade interests is undeniably huge, and it is to the committee’s great credit that they openly acknowledge this in the report.

Safety Concerns

Special mention is made in the report of a number of drugs that have produced severe adverse reactions, and in some cases death, in large numbers of people. Drugs thus highlighted include SSRI antidepressants, notably Seroxat, and the COX-2 inhibitors, Vioxx and Celebrex.

It is now well-established, for example, that in the US, the manufacturers of Vioxx and Celebrex failed to supply all the data in their possession to the regulator at the time of licence application. Significantly therefore the committee concludes in the report that this may also have been the case in the UK, and that the clinical trials of Seroxat and other SSRI antidepressants were not adequately scrutinised.

As the committee discovered therefore, the lack of pro-active and systematic monitoring of drug effects and health outcomes in normal clinical use is deeply worrying. Improvements in post-marketing surveillance are clearly needed, and, as is acknowledged in the report, would doubtless have led to the earlier detection of problems with SSRI antidepressants, COX-2 inhibitors and other dangerous drugs. Because of this the report specifically recommends, amongst other things, that steps be taken to improve rates of healthcare professional reporting of adverse drug reactions.

Drug-Induced Illness

Several witnesses interviewed by the committee during the inquiry that led to the publication of this report argued forcefully for a proper assessment of the extent and cost of drug-induced illness. Significantly therefore, as the inquiry progressed the committee themselves became similarly convinced of the need for this, and as a result the report specifically acknowledges that drug-induced disease is an increasing problem and that drugs have been too readily licensed and prescribed.

As the report also notes however, no figures for the total economic burden of drug-induced illness in the UK yet exist, but it is feared that this could amount to several billions of pounds per year. Adverse drug reactions are known to account for some 3% to 5% of all hospital admissions in the UK, for example, and this apparently costs around £500 million per year. Nevertheless, and as the report points out, no estimates have yet been made of the presumably greater cost of adverse drug reactions which do not lead to hospital treatment, nor of those experienced by perhaps 15% of all hospitalized patients.

The committee therefore recommended that more research should be undertaken into the adverse effects of drugs, both during drug development and medicines licensing, and that the Government should, as a matter of urgency, fund research into the costs of drug-induced illness. The report also acknowledges that neither the illness caused by drugs nor the health effects of multiple drug use have been adequately investigated thus far.

Medicalisation: Future Risks Of Genetic Testing

During the inquiry the committee were told by a number of witnesses that it is in the pharmaceutical industry’s interest to classify as large a proportion of the population as possible as ‘abnormal’. As such, the report concludes that genetic susceptibility to disease is an additional means of classifying a significant percentage of the general ‘well’ population in this way, and it states that the proportion of individuals classified as genetically susceptible to particular types of disease seems likely to rise dramatically in the future. Moreover, the report also states that the Government has done little to curb the increasing ‘medicalisation’ of society, and that it may in fact have encouraged it.

Ghost-Writing And Need For Pre-Registration Of Clinical Trials

The report outlines a number of serious deficiencies in both the conduct and value of clinical trials, and the committee makes clear its concern that results obtained in clinical trials do not mimic those likely to occur in routine clinical practice.

During their investigations the committee heard numerous allegations that clinical trials were not adequately designed; that they could be designed to show new drugs in their best light; and that they sometimes fail to indicate the true effects of drugs. Indeed, they were also informed of several high-profile cases of suppression of trial results; of selective publication strategies; and of ghost-writing practices. “At the heart of the problem”, they write, “may be the trend for the industry to become ever more driven by its marketing force.”

As a result the committee recommended that a register should be established of all clinical trials, and they state that it is essential that this should encourage genuine transparency and accountability. The committee furthermore recommended that the clinical trials register should be maintained by an independent body, and that the results of all clinical trials data, containing full trials information, should be put on the register at launch as a condition of the issuing of a marketing license.

Clearly, and as the report points out, ghost-writing, in conjunction with the suppression of negative trial results, is unquestionably harmful. If doctors do not have access to fair and accurate accounts of clinical trials then they cannot be expected to make informed decisions when deciding how best to treat their patients.

Illegal Marketing Practices

The report outlines a number of concerns that the committee had regarding the promotion of pharmaceutical drugs; perhaps the most serious of which concerns the use of illegal marketing practices.

One specific example quoted in the report is that of GlaxoSmithKline’s involvement with a small charity called Allergy UK, with whom they produced a "Mr Men" book based on the popular children’s characters. This appeared to be a very ordinary Mr Men book until one reached the end of it, where advertising for some of GlaxoSmithKline’s products could be found. The book was of course illegal and had to be withdrawn.

Nevertheless, the committee found that procedures for investigating complaints about breaches of regulations are too slow, poorly enforced and weakly sanctioned, and the report therefore recommends a major review of the investigation of complaints in order to ensure that the process is quicker and that effective sanctions are enforced.

One of the few levers that the Government actually has to influence the actions of the pharmaceutical industry is the Pharmaceutical Pricing Regulation Scheme (PPRS), which makes provision for allowances to companies for marketing, R&D and information. In one of their most novel suggestions therefore, the committee suggested that the PPRS could be used by the Government to encourage improvements in the behavior of the pharmaceutical industry. For example, when drug companies are found to be in breach of advertising regulations, or to have published misleading findings, the committee suggest that allowances for promotion and research provided under the PPRS should be reduced.

In addition however, the committee also recommended that corrective statements should always be required following a breach of advertising regulations, and that these statements should be given as much prominence as the original promotional piece. And, in a particularly damning criticism, the report alleges that the MHRA seems reluctant to punish companies that commit offences in the promotion of medicines.

The Regulatory System

Hardly surprisingly perhaps, the committee’s inquiry revealed major failings in the drug regulatory system. Amongst the many concerns in this area are issues relating to the licensing process; the evaluation of clinical trials; the control of marketing; and the withdrawal of drugs.

The process by which drugs are licensed comes in for particular criticism in the report, and is described as being “far from transparent.” For example, there is no public access to the data presented by the pharmaceutical companies, and nor is there public access to the assessments undertaken by the MHRA. The committee therefore recommended that the MHRA should publish the material it receives from drug companies and the assessments it sends to advisory bodies at the time it sends them.

In addition however it turns out that even the MHRA itself does not routinely examine raw data submitted with drug license applications, and that it is dependent instead upon summaries provided by the drug companies themselves. This is clearly a most inadequate state of affairs, for, as the report acknowledges, trial design and the way in which results are evaluated and reported can obscure negative results.

The committee therefore recommended that the MHRA should put in place systematic procedures to randomly audit the raw data submitted by drug companies, and that the results of these audits should be published.

Particular criticism in the committee’s report is directed towards clinical trials, which are described as being of limited value in predicting drug impact in naturalistic settings. As a means of rectifying this situation the report recommends that the MHRA should investigate options for the development of more effective post-marketing surveillance systems, and that consideration should be given to the establishment of post-marketing surveillance and drug safety monitoring systems independently of the Licensing Authority.

Quite clearly, the fact that the MHRA, like many regulatory organizations, is entirely funded by fees from the companies that it regulates does nothing to help these problems. In addition however, and unlike many regulators, the MHRA competes with other European agencies for fee income. This situation, as the report points out, has led to concerns that the MHRA may lose sight of the need to protect and promote public health above all else as it seeks to win fee income from drug companies.

The report also recommends that the MHRA should reassess a drug’s efficacy, safety and quality after it has been on the market for five years. In addition, and in what is potentially one of its most far-reaching recommendations, the report recommends that there should be a public inquiry whenever a drug is withdrawn on health grounds.

As the inquiry progressed the committee became aware of serious weaknesses in the MHRA. In this respect, and as the report states, “in both its written and oral evidence the Agency seemed oblivious to the critical views of outsiders and unable to accept that it had any obvious shortcomings, except those that could be remedied by more transparency.” In addition, the report adds that the MHRA’s attitude to its public health responsibilities “suggested some complacency and a lack of requisite competency, reducing our confidence in its ability to undertake the reforms needed to earn and deserve public trust.”

As a result, the committee recommended that an independent review should be conducted of the MHRA, in order to determine whether the processes it uses for decision-making are adequate and reflect patients’ health needs and society’s expectations.

Medical Practitioners

During the committee’s inquiries some witnesses blamed the pharmaceutical companies for giving hospitality to doctors and for paying what are sometimes significant sums to ‘key opinion leaders’. However, and as the committee’s report points out, less attention was apparently paid by these witnesses to the fact that the beneficiaries of the aforementioned hospitality and payments willingly accepted them.

Clearly, a medical practitioner’s evaluation of the merits of drugs may be influenced by the hospitality he receives from drug companies, and it is clearly unacceptable that some doctors may consequently choose to act uncritically upon the information they receive from these sources. As such, and as the committee state in their report, in the evaluation of clinical trial information it may be highly relevant to know of the investigators’ affiliations with the company sponsoring the trial.

In addition, the committee also stated that they were dismayed to find there is no register of interests to record gifts, hospitality or honoraria received by medical practitioners. Perhaps not surprisingly therefore, they recommend that a register of interests should be maintained by the relevant professional bodies detailing all substantial gifts, hospitality and honoraria received by members, and that this register should be made available for public inspection.

Despite the inherent dangers of pharmaceutical drugs, the UK Government is currently proposing to extend the prescribing powers of nurses and pharmacists, supposedly to ease the pressure on GPs. With this in mind therefore, the report recommends that stricter controls are needed on the ways in which drug company representatives can promote their products to nurses or pharmacists with new prescribing powers.

Disease Awareness Campaigns

Many patient organizations and disease awareness campaigns depend upon funding from drug companies. However, and as the committee discovered during the course of their inquiry, some disease awareness campaigns can act as a form of advertising to patients.

Although guidelines are already in place to ensure that individual medicines are not mentioned in material produced in relation to such campaigns, the promotional material that the committee obtained from drug companies clearly demonstrated that the targeting of patients may in fact be a prime objective. Moreover, the presence of company logos on this type of material clearly suggests that it is not merely being used as a health promotion tool.

One particular quotation included in the report gets right to the heart of this issue. Taken from a letter written in July 2002 by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain to the UK Medicines Control Agency (MCA, now known as the MHRA), this states that “One of the problems with [disease awareness campaigns] is that if there is only one product (or a clear brand leader) to treat a particular condition then promoting the condition equates to promoting the product.”

Clearly, and as the report points out, it is not acceptable for such campaigns to be veiled advertising for branded prescription-only medicines. As a result the committee therefore recommended that the current guidelines on disease awareness campaigns be strengthened, and that whenever a campaign is sponsored by a company that is developing or marketing a product to treat the condition that is the subject of the campaign, any related literature should carry a statement to this effect. In addition however, the report also recommends that patient groups should be required to declare all substantial sources of funding, including support given in kind, and to make such declarations accessible to the public.

Non-Drug Approaches To Healthcare

One aspect of the committee’s report that largely escaped attention after its publication was its discussion of non-drug approaches to healthcare.

As the committee pointed out in the report, there is too little independent research comparing drug and non-drug approaches to treatment. Moreover, and in a veiled reference to the business with disease, some witnesses who took part in the inquiry stated openly that there is little commercial interest in non-drug intervention.

Of course, proponents of natural healthcare have been arguing for some years now that the UK Government should fund trials of non-drug approaches to treatment. Perhaps significantly therefore, the report promisingly concludes that areas of research that are not of direct interest to the pharmaceutical industry but may significantly benefit patients, such as non-pharmacological treatments, should be funded by the Government. And, equally interestingly, the report also recommends that research ethics committees should encourage the inclusion of comparator drugs and non-drug approaches in the evaluation of proposed clinical trials, and that the UK National Health Service should adopt a policy regarding the role of drug treatment in relation to non-drug treatment.

The Government’s Fundamental Weakness?

During their inquiry the committee became increasingly concerned that there is a fundamental weakness in the Government’s dealings with the pharmaceutical industry; namely: the Department of Health’s dual role in promoting health and acting as ‘sponsor’ of the industry. These roles, as the committee state in their report, have not proved compatible. Health and trade priorities are not always identical and their combination leads to a lack of clarity of focus and commitment to health outcomes.

The report therefore concludes that the UK needs “a Secretary of State for Health who is not saddled with dual responsibilities, who is not a ‘cross-dresser’ but who puts health priorities first.” As a result the committee recommended that that responsibility for representing the interests of the pharmaceutical industry should move into the remit of the Department of Trade and Industry, to enable the Department of Health to concentrate solely on medicines regulation and the promotion of health.

Mushrooming depleted uranium (DU) scandal

 Heads roll at Veterans Administration

Mushrooming depleted uranium (DU) scandal blamed

by Bob Nichols

Project Censored Award Winner

Preventive Psychiatry E-Newsletter charged Monday that the reason Veterans Affairs Secretary Anthony Principi stepped down earlier this month was the growing scandal surrounding the use of uranium munitions in the Iraq War.

Writing in Preventive Psychiatry E-Newsletter No. 169, Arthur N. Bernklau, executive director of Veterans for Constitutional Law in New York, stated, “The real reason for Mr. Principi’s departure was really never given, however a special report published by eminent scientist Leuren Moret naming depleted uranium as the definitive cause of the ‘Gulf War Syndrome’ has fed a growing scandal about the continued use of uranium munitions by the US Military.”

Bernklau continued, “This malady (from uranium munitions), that thousands of our military have suffered and died from, has finally been identified as the cause of this sickness, eliminating the guessing. The terrible truth is now being revealed.”

He added, “Out of the 580,400 soldiers who served in GW1 (the first Gulf War), of them, 11,000 are now dead! By the year 2000, there were 325,000 on Permanent Medical Disability. This astounding number of ‘Disabled Vets’ means that a decade later, 56% of those soldiers who served have some form of permanent medical problems!” The disability rate for the wars of the last century was 5 percent; it was higher, 10 percent, in Viet Nam.

“The VA Secretary (Principi) was aware of this fact as far back as 2000,” wrote Bernklau. “He, and the Bush administration have been hiding these facts, but now, thanks to Moret’s report, (it) … is far too big to hide or to cover up!”

“Terry Jamison, Public Affairs Specialist, Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs, Department of Veterans Affairs, at the VA Central Office, recently reported that ‘Gulf Era Veterans’ now on medical disability, since 1991, number 518,739 Veterans,” said Berklau.

“The long-term effects have revealed that DU (uranium oxide) is a virtual death sentence,” stated Berklau. “Marion Fulk, a nuclear physical chemist, who retired from the Lawrence Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab, and was also involved with the Manhattan Project, interprets the new and rapid malignancies in the soldiers (from the 2003 Iraq War) as ‘spectacular … and a matter of concern!’”

When asked if the main purpose of using DU was for “destroying things and killing people,” Fulk was more specific: “I would say it is the perfect weapon for killing lots of people!”

Principi could not be reached for comment prior to deadline.

Police State: Britain plans total electronic surveillance of roads

Britain plans total electronic surveillance of roads

In trial runs, the high-tech system increased arrests per officer tenfold. By Mark Rice-Oxley | Correspondent of The Christian Science Monitor LONDON

First there was closed-circuit TV. Then speed cameras. Then DNA profiling, plans for ID cards, and cellphone data storage. In March, Britain will enhance its reputation as the surveillance capital of the West with a global first: recording the movements of all cars on the road and storing the data for at least two years.

  It’s a network of thousands of cameras harnessed to software that can read car license plates, check them against a central database, and alert police to suspected criminals or terrorists.Police chiefs are thrilled at the technology, arguing it will provide an unrivaled crime-fighting tool that will also aid antiterror efforts.

In regional trial runs, the number of arrests per officer shot up from around 10 per year to 100 per year. Convictions also increased.

But civil liberty activists are aghast at yet another move by the authorities to spy on citizens in the name of security and law and order, warning of a growing bank of Orwellian technology.

"The freedom and anonymity of the open road is something that is culturally important here," says Simon Davies, director of Privacy International. "Now like some scene in ‘1984,’ the fact that we will travel and be detected and analyzed changes the whole psyche of the nation."

In their defense, police say they need the best technology available to reduce perennially rising crime rates and face an acute terror threat.

"Criminals use cars, it’s as simple as that," says John Dean, a retired officer who is coordinating the rollout of the automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) program.

"It’s taken a while to get the police service to realize that this can make a significant difference to crime detection and terrorism."

Same cameras, new cross-checking

Britain’s 30 million motorists have long been used to assiduous roadside camera surveillance, be it to deter speeding or monitor London’s congestion charge – an £8 ($14) fee charged for driving into central London during business hours.

But the ANPR nationwide system will use the extensive camera network already in place as well as new cameras to capturelicenseplates from as many as 50 million cars a day and store them in a vast databank with date, time, and location stamps.

Within a matter of seconds, the database will signal whether the car may be of interest to police, cross-checking the plate against a list of stolen and suspect vehicles and also verifying for proper insurance, taxation, and roadworthiness. Dedicated ANPR operators will then alert roadside units to the rogue vehicle.

"People who drive stolen cars often steal them as a result of burglary," says Mr. Dean, so you might find property in the back or other material. It’s very efficient."

Police say life is about to get tougher for criminals, whether they are involved with drugs, firearms, identity fraud, or property theft.

Or terrorism. At least one vehicle was used to convey the July 7 bombers and their materials part of the way to London last year. Police are not saying that ANPR would automatically have foiled the plot. But Dean says the technology, already in use at a local level in some parts of the country, had brought "benefits to the investigation."

Tracking movements over a long period

Even if an immediate arrest is not possible, the data will help the authorities build up an intelligence picture of the movements of suspicious vehicles and analyze journeys that drivers have made over several years. The intelligence service MI5 will also use the database, according to Frank Whiteley, a senior police officer.

But not everyone thinks that trusting cameras and cops is a good idea.Already in Britain there is a fierce lobby opposed to the proliferation of speed cameras, which many see as a tool of the tax man rather than a road safety enforcer.

Some wonder whether ANPR, which will cost tens of millions of pounds to set up, will be used primarily to drum up fines and revenues from road-tax delinquents.

Nigel Humphries of the Association of British Drivers lobby group worries that "real criminals have cars that can’t be traced anyway." He says the system may offer benefits, but "there need to be safeguards."

Parliament should have oversight

Edward Garnier, a Conservative MP and spokesman on home affairs, says that Parliament, not the police, should act as arbiters over the system because of its implications for the criminal justice system and for civil liberties.

"I can understand why the police want to use this technology but they should not be the arbiters," he says.

Privacy and civil liberty champions take a more fundamental opposition to the scheme. Mr. Davies of Privacy International, likens it to "weeding with a bulldozer."

"So long as you believe that every person in government and authority is just and fair and that the machinery of the state never screws up, then it’s fine," he says. In fact, the ANPR technology has fallen well short of a 100 percent score in policing London’s congestion fee. Other police databases have similarly proven fallible.

Opponents of surveillance say Britain is rapidly emerging as the biggest of Big Brother societies, a "database state" with an increasing tendency for automated answers to social questions.

The government still plans to use biometric identity cards beginning in 2008, together with a national database. A national DNA database already has samples from 1 in 10 British adults, more than 100,000 of whom have never been charged or even cautioned. And last month, Britain persuaded its European partners to join it in storing data from cellphone records for up to two years as a counter-terrorism tool.

And it may not stop there.

Experts are already working on systems that can automatically recognize human faces and it may not be long before machines can pick out a "suspicious" face in a crowd. Many on both left and right of the political spectrum find the growing use of surveillance disturbing.

"Frankly I don’t want to see a society in which the Big Brother element comes to the fore," says MP Garnier.

Impeach Blair over Iraq: UK general

 

Impeach Blair over Iraq: UK general
From correspondents in London
January 08, 2006

A LEADING British Army officer believes Prime Minister Tony Blair should be impeached for his role in the war in Iraq, the Mail on Sunday reported.

General Sir Michael Rose, a former UN commander in Bosnia, was quoted by the right-of-centre Mail on Sunday as saying: "I think the politicians should be held to account … my view is that Blair should be impeached.

"That would prevent the politicians treating quite so carelessly the subject of taking a country into war."

A high-profile resignation of a senior armed forces officer before the start of the March 2003 conflict may also have made the British Government think twice before sending troops to the Gulf, he added.

"I would not have gone to war on such flimsy grounds," he said.

The newspaper said the comments were made during a television documentary to be aired on Channel Four television on Friday.

Martin Bell, BBC television’s former war correspondent who made the film – Iraq: The Failure of War – appeared to back the general, writing in the Mail on Sunday that it was "reasonable" to blame the politicians.

"Ordering the armed forces to war is the most serious decision any government takes. On Iraq it was taken with a degree of nonchalance bordering on negligence," said Bell, who is a former independent member of Parliament.

Rose’s opinion revives a call made in November 2004 when 23 MPs filed a motion to impeach Blair on charges of "gross misconduct" over the US-led invasion.

Although it fell by the wayside despite attempts by Welsh and Scottish nationalists to revive it during the general election last May, it was the first such bid to impeach a prime minister in 198 years.

The Great HIV Hoax

The Great "HIV" Hoax

written by Patrick Rattigan ND

The multi-billion dollar/pound AIDS/HIV fraud is based on two fabrications : that AIDS is a single disease and that it is caused by the HI virus or the "HIV virus" as some medical/media masterminds call it – perhaps they think the V in HIV stands for volcano. In Japan "AIDS" is virtually unknown : yet, in random tests, 25% of people were found to be "HIV-positive".

HIV-positive response means nothing of any relevance to health : it can be triggered by vaccination, malnutrition, M.S., measles, influenza, papilloma virus wart, Epstein Barr virus, leprosy, glandular fever, hepatitis, syphillis … : over sixty different conditions.

"HIV…is one thousandth the size of a regular cell….HIV is simply a harmless piece of dead tissue, not unlike the numerous other retroviruses that exist in our body…"

Dr Robert E. Willner, who inoculated himself with the blood of Pedro Tocino, a HIV-positive haemophiliac, on live Spanish television. The great HIV/AIDS lie was created by Robert Gallo who was found guilty of "scientific misconduct".

"…instead of trying to prove his insane theories about AIDS to his peers…he went public. Then, with the help of Margaret Heckler, former head of Health and Human Services, who was under great political pressure to come up with an answer to AIDS, the infamous world press announcement of the discovery of the so-called AIDS virus came about. This great fraud is now responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands… It was no accident that Gallo just happened to patent the test for HIV the day after the announcement…Gallo is now a multi-millionaire because of AIDS and his fraudulent AIDS test."

Dr Robert E. Willner

By grouping together 25-plus different diseases and other allied factors – pneumonia, herpes, candidiasis, salmonella, various cancers, infections, vaccine and antibiotic damage, amyl nitrate damage, malnutrition etc.and, particularly in Africa, TB, malaria, dysentery leprosy and "slim disease" – and calling the whole thing an "AIDS epidemic", a multi-billion dollar/pound "AIDS research and treatment" racket has been created.

The mythical "HIV-induced AIDS plague" in the Third World generates huge sums of cash from Western relief organisations whilst smokescreening the vaccine/drug boys, responsible for the carnage.

Every death of someone "HIV-positive" is recorded as an "AIDS death".

Periodically, the BBC/ITV/Press visit Africa/Yugoslavia/Russia etc to report on the "HIV/AIDS victims" and how they cannot afford the "life-saving AZT."

Glaxo Wellcome’s lethal drug, AZT, in combination with the diagnosis of HIV-positive and the prediction, stated or implied, that – "You will die of AIDS" is one of the great pieces of Medical Black Magic – Voodoo Medicine at its most impressive : people have committed suicide on the basis of the ludicrous diagnosis.

Pregnant women who are HIV-positive have been told to stop breast-feeding, dosed with AZT, have had abortions or have been sterilised. HIV-positive babies who become ill -from vaccination or whatever – are automatically diagnosed as "suffering from AIDS".

"Considering that there is little scientific proof of the exact linkage of HIV and AIDS, is it ethical to prescribe AZT, a toxic chain terminator of DNA…to 150,000 Americans – among them pregnant women and newborn babies..?

Rep.G Gutknecht US House of Representatives.

New Labour "Health" have now announced that all pregnant women in the UK will be "offered" a HIV test. Those who fall for the scam and who are diagnosed as "HIV positive" will be given the chance to have themselves and their unborn child permanently damaged by AZT etc.

AZT began as a "cancer drug" but was withdrawn for being too toxic : like being thrown out of the Gestapo for cruelty. Its effects include – cancer, hepatitis, dementia, seizures, anxiety, impotence, leukopaenia, , severe nausea, ataxia, etc. and the termination of DNA synthesis. i.e. AIDS/death by prescription. AZT eventually kills all those who continue to take it.

"WARNING : Retrovir (AZT)…has been associated with symptomatic myopathy, similar to that produced by Human Immunodeficiency Virus…"

Glaxo Wellcome literature!

None of which stops the medical trade from pushing it on every trusting sap who is not ill to start with but is labelled with the "HIV-positive" nonsense and then destroyed by AZT; with "AIDS" getting the blame – and more billions pouring in for the drug boys, vivisectors, animal breeders and the rest. The latest stunt is to give a "cocktail" of drugs – including AZT, of course, and at £15,000 per head, per year – to all homosexual men who are "HIV-positive".

A particularly good scam is to haul into court someone "guilty of deliberately infecting the victim with the ‘HIV-Virus which causes AIDS’ " which then develops into "full-blown AIDS" – no mention of vaccine, antibiotic damage etc or full-blown AZT. Over 2000 – and rising, of the world’s scientists are now disputing the HIV hoax, their efforts being continually suppressed by the AIDS establishment, the pharmaceutical/vivisection syndicate and their political and media lackeys…

"The story of AIDS is deeply connected with the vicissitudes of the theory that viruses cause cancer and the failure of the cancer research programme. Michael Verney-Elliot put it most acidly when he said ‘From the people who didn’t bring you the virus that causes cancer, it’s the virus that doesn’t cause AIDS.’

Jad Adams The HIV Myth.

"It’s not even probable, let alone scientifically proven, that HIV causes AIDS. If there is evidence… there should be scientific documents which… demonstrate that fact… There are no such documents.

Dr Kary Mullis Nobel Laureate

"If you think a virus is the cause of AIDS, do a control without it….it hasn’t been done. The epidemiology of AIDS is a pile of anecdotal stories, selected to fit the virus/AIDS hypothesis…

Peter Duesberg Member, National Academy of Sciences.

"Nobody wants to look at the facts…I’ve sent countless letters to medical journals…they simply ignore them. The fact is, this whole heterosexual AIDS thing is a hoax."

Prof Gordon Stewart Public Health University of Glasgow.

"The cause of AIDS is multiufactorial ; HIV is neither necessary nor sufficient."

Dr Lawrence Bradford biologist.

"I am well convinced that HIV is harmless."

Dr Fabio Franchi, specialist, infectious disease

"…AIDS is not a disease at all – it is a government program."

Tom Bethel Hoover Institute researcher.

"Electron microscopy reveals retrovirus-like particles in 90% of enlarged lymph nodes from AIDS patients but the identical particles can be found in 90% of enlarged lymph nodes from patients who do not have AIDS and are not at risk from developing AIDS. If the particles seen…in AIDS patients are, as the AIDS experts assure, HIV, what are the particles seen in patients..who are not at risk…"

Dr Valendar Turner, Autralian Broadcasting program 1994.

"A major problem with the new AIDS definition is that it ignores the man-made environmental causes of immune suppression. Exposure to toxins, alcoholism, heavy drug use or heavy antibiotic use all can cause onset of the list of ‘diseases’ indicative of AIDS."

Los Angeles Weekly Dec 18 1987.

"I have seen the constant terror and the programming to get sick and die…As long as we imply that ‘AIDS’ itself exists we are operating within the AIDS group fantasy."

Michael Ellner medical hypnotist

"Regarding the only type of HIV antibody test routinely used in the UK since 1992, called an ELISA, manufacturers, Abbott Laboratories, say : ‘ELISA testing alone cannot be used to diagnose AIDS..’."

Roche Diagnostics..likewise say of their genetic ‘HIV testing kits’ : "The Amplicor HIV Monitor test is not intended to be used as a screening test for HIV or as a diagnostic test to confirm the presence of HIV infection"

Continuum Magazine leaflet Dec 1998

"The techniques of the HIV test have not been standardised and the magnitude and the consequences of inter-laboratory variations have not been measured.
Its results require interpretation and the criteria for this interpretation vary, not only from lab to lab, but from month to month."

New England Journal of Medicine 317:238-241.

"Positive tests do not prove AIDS or pre-AIDS disease status nor that these diseases will be acquired."

Manufacturers of Western Blot (HIV) test kit.

"…in the general population, which the CDC estimates to have a prevalence of HIV infection of 0.006%, using a test with a specificity of 99%, the result is that 94% of all positives will be false positives."

Christine Johnson, Continuum Magazine, April 1994

"A study last month, by Congress’s Office of Technology Assessment, found that HIV tests can be very inaccurate indeed. For groups at very low risk – people who don’t use IV drugs or have sex with gay or bi-sexual men – 9 in 10 positive findings are called false positives, indicating infection where none exists."

US News and World Report Nov 23 1994.

"HIV tests are notoriously unreliable in Africa. A 1994 study, published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, concluded that HIV tests were useless in central Africa, where the microbes responible for tuberculosis, malaria and leprosy were so prevalent that they registered over 70% false positive."

Sacramento Bee October 30 1994

"It was the first time a scientist had ever run away from me. Typically scientists are bulldogs. They fight for their position. But the HIV guys don’t. They run."

David Rasnick, on his doomed attempt to get answers on awkward questions from HIV-fantasist Martin Markowitz.

"We’ve all seen them. Stars , disc jockeys , sportsmen and women with a red ribbon pinned onto white tuxedos , black dinner jackets and spaghetti-strapped evening dresses. These are the compassionate celebrities who, with a sad expression , don the mantle of corporate grief for ‘AIDS victims and sufferers ‘ and feel they are ‘doing good’. Granted they are doing this with the best of intentions but far from doing good they are actually doing damage – they are using their celebrity to raise funds for AIDS research that is entirely misdirected and orchestrated by a profit – oriented and commercially-blinkered pharmaceutical industry.

They are perpetrating the myth of the…friend who was unlucky enough to get AIDS through one unfortunate sexual encounter. They are colluding in a dangerous cult of death-worship. They are diverting attention away from the high-risk lifestyle factors including recreational and intravenous drug use that accompany ‘acquired immune deficiency’….

When Celia Farber interviewed the late Michael Callen ( author of Surviving AIDS ) for Spin Magazine in 1988 he said, ‘ I have gone to a great deal of trouble to find these people who claim to have only one or two ‘unlucky’ sexual contacts. I found ten of them in all and each one ended up telling me they had been lying…in the support group setting they would regale us with tales of bathhouses and promiscuity and lovers on the side and drug use.’…

But there are those who prefer to cling to the ‘single simple cause’. They have something to cling to in their grief…It is this ignorant, if innocent, collusion, both by ordinary mortals and celebrities, with the orthodox virus-AIDS hypothesis ( that has failed to save a single life ) which continues to fill the pharmaceutical industry’s pockets, continues to perpetrate the myth that HIV causes AIDS – that HIV exists at all – and continues to prevent dissident scientists from exploring new avenues of research."

Joan Shenton, Meditel Productions – Continuum Magazine Jun/Jul 1997.

To add to the lunacy, if the HIV existed, a "positive" response would mean that the body has superiority over the virus : "HIV" is the only infective agent where a positive response indicates a negative situation.

Taking the "HIV test" is of no use whatsoever to anyone other than drug companies and governments ever eager to increase their control. Those who have had their immune system damaged by vaccines, antibiotics, antipyretics, analgesics, amyl nitrates etc. need to detoxify and to build up immune strength with raw, vegan, organic foods, homoeopathic and herbal remedies : and, above all else, to stop swallowing the " ‘HIV’ causes ‘AIDS’ " rubbish and the lethal AZT "medication".

"I have known so many people who have died of AIDS … and all of them – all of them – took the drugs they were told to by their doctors. .. I have never taken any of them and I haven’t gotten sick. Not even a cold. The doctors told me I had five years left to live. .. these drugs companies that produce the medication are getting very rich… everyone I knew who has been HIV positive – and that’s a lot of people- has died after taking these drugs."

On Dec 1 1998, Channell 4 News, after commissioning an "AIDS Virus" expose from Meditel, declined to broadcast the 9-minute piece. The C4 editor, Jim Gray, succumbed to pressure from " ‘AIDS’ virologist", Jonathan Weber et al. David Lloyd, the C4 Head of News and Current Affairs, refused to overrule Gray.

The public-funded BBC, in gross contravention and contempt of the requirements for balance and impartiality, continues to promote, unchallenged, the Glaxo/AIDS Establishment version.

The Cancer Business Part 2

The Cancer Business Pt 2
by Patrick Rattigan ND
 
CANCER RESEARCH – ULTIMATE FRAUD

‘…still the money pours in for "Cancer Research" from kind-hearted, well-meaning people in spite of the fact that the much-advertised "cures" and "discoveries" invariably turn out, year after year, to be no cure at all but rather an aggravation of the trouble, the proof of this being the steady increase of the disease on all sides…

Surely there should be some result to show as a partial excuse for the torturing of so many animals…the public still does not realise that nothing is likely to happen, no progress ever likely or even possible whilst the research is done on demonstrably wrong lines.’

Morley Steynor – 1940

Since these words, countless billions of pounds/dollars/animals have been squandered; whilst the disease has steadily reached the point of seriously threatening the continuation of the human species. Clearly, even given the level of intelligence of the research laboratory inmates, the situation could not possibly be explained by sheer, crass stupidity alone.

‘A solution to cancer would mean the termination of research programs, the obsolescence of skills, the end of dreams of personal glory. Triumph over cancer would dry up contributions to self-perpetuating charities…It would mortally threaten the present clinical establishment by rendering obsolete the expensive surgical, radiological and chemotherapeutic treatments in which so much money, training and equipment is invested…The new therapy must be disbelieved, denied, discouraged and disallowed at all costs; regardless of actual testing results and, preferably, without any testing at all.’22

The UK cancer research fund-raising syndicate are clawing in well over £100 million each year. The highly-paid PR. spivs, administrators, organisers, commission-paid agents…aided by an army of semi-conscious supporters – many of whom have seen their relatives and friends destroyed by the treatments produced by the very same organisations that they are supporting – have created by far the biggest fraud, medical or otherwise, in history.

Animal research plays a major part in the global scam: 800 ways have been found to artificially induce tumours in animals; not one with an atom of relevance to spontaneously occurring cancer in humans.

Dr Linus Pauling, double Nobel Laureate, declared: ‘Everyone should know that the "War on Cancer" is, largely, a fraud.’

The Pauling Institute were reduced to advertising in the Wall Street Journal for funds: ‘Our research shows that the incidence and severity of cancer depends on diet. We urgently want to refine that research so that it may help to decrease suffering from human cancer. The US government has absolutely and continually refused to support Dr Pauling and his colleagues here in this work…’26

Ascorbate in the Control of Leukaemia

‘Hypo-ascorbemia…is caused by humans carrying a defective gene for the production of the liver enzyme, L-gulonolactone oxidase…(due)…to a mutation occurring in a primate ancestor of man. The lack of this enzyme in the human liver…prevents us from synthesising our own ascorbic acid…This defective gene is common to all mankind, therefore chronic hypo-ascorbemia is now our most prevalent disease…It is possible that the chronic sub-clinical scurvy, existing in the victim since infancy, may be a factor in initiating the leukaemia…

It is a hard clinical fact that leukaemics have pathologically low levels of ascorbic acid in their blood plasma…what kills most leukaemics is…haemorrhage and infection…Both…are pathognomonic symptoms of scurvy. In the one case where complete remission was achieved and maintained in myelogenous leukaemia, the patient took 24 to 42 grams of ascorbic acid per day…

It is inconceivable that no-one appears to have followed this up…in any of the thousands of cases of leukaemia which appear each year.

What is wrong with the public-supported charities for cancer and leukaemia…?…without the scurvy, leukaemia may be a relatively benign, non-fatal condition…

I wrote…a paper…in attempt to have the therapy clinically-tested..I sent the paper to three cancer journals and three blood journals. It was refused by all…Two…without even reading it…I cannot help wondering how many lives could have been saved and how much suffering could have been avoided had the editors…permitted publication.’

Dr. Irwin Stone

Dr. Stone could have hardly expected the fraudsters of the multi-billion dollar/pound ‘Leukaemia Research’ empire to abandon their solid gold source and admit that the disease responded to a simple, inexpensive, non-patentable regime of vitamin C or fruit and vegetable juices allied to simple herbs; as was demonstrated by Rudolf Breuss29 and others.

Nor are the pseudo-researchers interested in pointing the finger at the deluge of cancer-causing synthetics coming from their friends in other vivisection laboratories. The antibiotic chloramphenicol (chloromycetin) ‘…was tried out for long periods on dogs and found to produce only a transient anaemia, but fatal results have followed its use in human disease.’31

‘…even one capsule of chloromycetin could cause…leukaemia…I remember a child dying of aplastic anaemia after a general practitioner had prescribed chloromycetin for a cold…For a cold – a virus infection!… The parents were crying, the kid was bleeding. I was warned by several physicians that grave consequences would befall me if I told the parents that their beautiful child was dying because of a doctor’s mindless prescription.’

Lasko – The Great Billion Dollar Medical Swindle

Not content with merely keeping quiet about the carcinogens pouring from the medical/petrochemical industry, the ‘Imperial Cancer Research Fund’ have gone out of their way to protect their close brethren in the cancer machine: ‘One of the biggest myths in recent years is that there is a cancer epidemic caused by exposure to radiation, pollution, pesticides and food additives. The truth is that these factors have very little to do with the majority of cancers in this country.’

The Cook Report on Cancer Quacks

1994 saw two distinct threats to the Cancer Business: the first UK conference on oxygen therapies, used to treat cancer etc., and a proposed trial, for the first time with NHS monitoring, of a nutritional treatment for cancer. This latter, no doubt, sent shock waves through the industry.

Until that time the cartel had successfully blocked all attempts to organise any trial of a safe, effective therapy involving the NHS. After the Bristol debacle, the cancer boys were extra keen that no trial should be allowed to begin, let alone be completed. On realising that a trial request had slipped through the net, the Syndicate turned, naturally, to ITV. ITV being dependent on the petro/pharma mafia for its existence, allocated the task of exposing the ‘cancer quacks’ to the experts, the Cook team at Central TV.

On December 22 1994, the Cook Report was used to attack a doctor using the same treatment – the Gerson Therapy – which was to be used in the trial. The treatment has been used for well over 60 years on a wide variety of chronic conditions including ‘terminal’ cancer. Cook stated that the therapy had caused deaths in the USA, a total fabrication and an hilarious comment considering the countless millions killed by the orthodox onslaught.

Being of an intriguingly low standard of pseudo-journalism, even by Cook Report standards, the piece would not have impressed any half-intelligent viewer but it did give a fascinating insight into the links between ITV and the cancer combine. The Cook team correctly reasoned that those libelled in the programme would not have the finances to sue the petro-backed ITV. Gordon McVie, of the CRC, one of the bodies censured for its part in the Bristol centre scandal, was a natural for the programme and declared: ‘If I knew of a doctor who claimed to cure cancer by manipulation of the diet I would ask someone in high places to investigate that claim.’

McVie was sent, recorded delivery, the required information but was, unfortunately, too busy to organise the investigation.

Early in 1996, the Cook gang were forced to transmit the first apology, on air, concerning one of the practitioners: we still await the rest.

MEDICINE OF THE DAMNED
 ‘The power that has said to all these things that they are damned is Dogmatic Science.’

Charles Fort

Hoxsey

William Hoxsey owned a Percheron stallion in Madison County, Illinois. The horse developed a sore on its right hock and, after treatment, the infection spread and became cancerous. Declining the vet’s advice to shoot such a valuable animal, Hoxsey put it out to graze and waited. Noticing an improvement, Hoxsey started to monitor the horse’s feeding habits.

Three months later, he was able to remove the growth from the horse’s leg.

Hoxsey developed the herbal formula and became famous throughout Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky for his cures of cancer, sores and fistula in horses.

John C. Hoxsey, grandson of William, modified the treatment for humans and, under the supervision of doctors in Dallas, started to treat cancer. Harry, son of John C., was to establish the largest independent cancer treatment organisation in the world with 17 clinics in the USA.

After repeated requests a group of ten independent medical doctors investigated the treatment and, in 1954, issued a statement:

‘This clinic now has under treatment or observation between four and five thousand cancer patients. It handles approximately ninety patients per day. Approximately 100 new patients per week come to the Clinic seeking relief, and the evidence we have seen indicates that approximately 90 percent of these are terminal cases.

Over the years the Clinic has accumulated more than 10,000 case histories, photographic studies and X-ray studies from all over the United States, Canada, Alaska, Mexico, Hawaii, the Central Zone and elsewhere.

We find as a fact that the Hoxsey Cancer Clinic in Dallas, Texas, is successfully treating pathologically proven cases of cancer, both internal and external, without the use of surgery, radium or X-ray…

Some of those presented before us have been free of symptoms as long as twenty four years, and the physical evidence indicates that they are all enjoying exceptional health at this time…We are willing to assist this Clinic in any way possible in bringing this treatment to the American public. We are willing to use it…on our own patients.

The above statement represents the unanimous findings of this Committee. In testimony thereof we hereby attach our signatures.’

(S. Edgard Bond M.D. Willard G. Palmer M.D.
Hans Kalm M.D. A.C. Timbs M.D.
Frederick H. Thurston M.D. D.O. E.E. Loffler M.D.
H.B. Mueller M.D. R.C. Bowie M.D.
Benjamin F. Bowers M.D. Roy O. Yeats M.D.)

A group of AMA doctor/businessmen offered to buy the formula from Hoxsey, who agreed, providing that his promise to his father, to always treat patients who could not afford to pay, was in the deal. The doctors would have none of this and the campaign to brand Hoxsey as a quack was born. Repeated attempts by Hoxsey to have the therapy evaluated were refused by the cancer industry; whilst the media and political battle raged for decades. One assistant District Attorney arrested Hoxsey over one hundred times within two years: Hoxsey merely paid the bail and returned to the clinic. The official changed sides when his brother was successfully treated for terminal cancer at the Hoxsey clinic.

As the AMA and the cancer business had failed to stop the therapy, the Food and Drug Administration were brought in: FDA agents went to patients’ homes and confiscated the medicines upon which the desperate victims depended. Finally, the FDA padlocked all 17 clinics on the same day. Hoxsey being unable to take legal action, on this scale, against the government, decided to go back to his multi-million dollar oil business.

Mildred Nelson, a Hoxsey nurse, took the treatment to Tijuana, Mexico in 1963 and changed the name of the clinic to BioMed. Patients, 90 percent of whom are officially ‘terminal’, continue to pour into the clinic, which maintains a cure rate of around 80 percent.

Johnathon Hartwell, a NCI chemist, confirmed that all the herbs in the Hoxsey formula had proven anti-cancer properties.

Gerson

Dr. Max Gerson was of German origin and moved to the USA. His fruit and vegetable juice-based treatment was first used on TB cases in Germany in the 1920s and later in New Jersey and Nanuet, New York. Dr. Gerson successfully treated Dr. Albert Schweitzer for diabetes and Mrs. Schweitzer for TB. Schweitzer considered Gerson to be a medical genius. In 1958 Gerson published ‘A Cancer Therapy – Results of Fifty Cases.’ Edward Lee Dowd is number 14 on the list: ‘I am the luckiest man alive. Twenty seven years ago I was lying in a hospital bed, scheduled to have half my neck removed the next day for metastasised melanoma. A lady told me about Dr. Max Gerson…I went to his clinic instead of the operating theatre and in a few weeks the lumps had gone. I was that close to mutilation and death.’32

The doctor published fifty papers on his treatment, in Europe; but his fruitless efforts to interest the US cancer mafia, eventually led him, in frustration, to give a talk on an all-night radio show. He was promptly suspended, by the County of New York Medical Society, ‘…as a result of personal publicity.’

In 1946 he presented five of his cured patients to a US Senate sub-committee in an attempt to have some of the multi-million dollar research fund used to investigate the therapy. His efforts were defeated by four votes due to the efforts of the politicians on the side of the medical lobby.

The Gerson Clinic now operates in Mexico – like the Hoxsey Clinic – out of the reach of the US cancer gangsters.

In April 1995, the Gerson treatment became the subject of a trial monitored by the Regional Cancer Centre in Guildford. In the first year 8 patients were treated, all diagnosed as terminal, having been damaged/severely damaged by surgery/drugs/radiation. 4 had life-expectancy measured in days, 3 died after living longer than expected, the other lasted over a year past his die-by date.

The therapy has now been modified to include a concentrated, vegetable-based extract, and a more flexible naturopathic regime. This has further increased the treatment’s value as the trial continues.If the trial leads to early stage patients being given the chance to live, the threat to the cancer business could eventually be terminal; something the business will not be expected to allow without the full catalogue of sabotage.

Macrobiotics

The standard macrobiotic diet consists of 50/60% whole grain cereals, 20/25% vegetables, 5/10% beans and sea vegetables, 5% soups.

Macobiotics is a holistic approach to cancer – and life – including the cultivation of a calm, harmonious approach to society and nature.

‘Diet Cured My Killer Cancer’

‘…as a doctor I’d never referred any case of cancer to an "alternative" practitioner. Late in January, I started getting diarrhoea and some intestinal discomfort…an ultrasound scan revealed that I had cancer of the pancreas…We both knew the diagnosis was, more or less, a death sentence…I knew the prognosis for my case – it was two to four months survival from the date of diagnosis…We’d found a hospice in Hampstead and made a booking.’ – Dr. Hugh Faulkner, then aged 74.

‘On the advice of a shiatsu masseuse he decided to have a consultation at the Community Health Foundation to see if macrobiotics "…would improve the quality of the months remaining to me". Michio Kushi, the leader of the international macrobiotic movement…took my pulse very carefully and spent a long time examining my skin…I said "Well, can macrobiotics cure my cancer?"

‘"Your body can, he said."

‘Now…I am feeling fit and well… I’ve had full blood counts and there is no evidence of cancer…they asked me to talk to some GPs on a refresher course. One of them said, "I don’t believe you ever had cancer." So I showed them my biopsy report and introduced them to my surgeon. They said "spontaneous regression".

‘Dr.Faulkner was still alive seven years later.

‘Five years ago Ann Francis…was told by a bully-boy at Stoke Manderville Hospital that the bladder cancer (operated on in April 1990) was a "fast-growing" variety which would be back to the same size within two months if I didn’t have radiation! I refused radiation and told him I proposed to rely on my immune system, whereupon he said: "You have no immune system." Charming, wasn’t it? Some less well-informed patient might have believed him and really panicked.’ More macrobiotic spontaneous remission.

‘My conclusion after a quarter a century of medical practice is that truly spontaneous remissions are almost as rare as chickens’ teeth…such cases as do occur are probably always the result of a re-instated bodily resistance that previously had been impaired.’33

‘Farmer’s diet beats cancer…

‘Farmer Francis Cockram is not the sort of person you would call a crank. Six foot three, his face weathered by years on the land…when Mr. Cockram was told he had liver cancer and only six months to live he felt he had nothing to lose in giving "alternative" medicine a chance. That was in May 1992. More than two years later, he is very much alive. working on the farm…

‘NHS doctors, who said there was nothing more they could do for Mr. Cockram, are mystified…a recent scan showed that the 68 year-old farmer’s liver is now clear of cancer. Mr Cockram’s homeopath in Tiverton told him he could fight the disease by going on a strict diet…eating plenty of fruit, raw vegetables and cereals and drinking nothing but bottled water.’34

The B17 Cover-Up (Apricot seeds)

In 1535 the French explorer Jacques Cartier and his expedition were frozen in the ice off the St. Lawrence river. 25 of the 110 crew were dead from scurvy and the rest were due to follow. At this point a friendly native American came forward with a potion made from the needles and bark of the white pine, rich in ascorbic acid, or vitamin C. This produced a dramatic recovery.

When Cartier returned to Europe and reported to the medical mandarins they were amused by the ‘witch-doctor cures of ignorant savages’ and went on with their search for mystery toxins and bugs lurking in the dark holds of the ships. 260 years later, after the British Navy alone had lost over a million men to scurvy, the practice of carrying oranges, lemons and limes on board ship led to the ‘limeys’ ruling the waves.

Scurvy – vitamin C; pellagra – vitamin B3; night-blindness – vitamin A; rickets – vitamin D; beri beri – vitamin B1; pernicious anaemia – vitamin B12. It should have needed no great intellectual leap to suspect that another chronic, metabolic disease – cancer – might also be a vitamin-specific deficiency disease.

The use of certain fruit kernels in the treatment of cancer goes back to the Emperor herbalist Shen Nung in the 28th century BC. ‘Bitter almond water’ features in the writings of the physicians of ancient Egypt, Arabia, Rome and Greece. Celsus, Galen, Scribonious Largus, Pliny the Elder, Avicenna and Marcellus Empiricus all used preparations based on the seeds of the bitter almond, apricot, peach etc.35

In 1952 the American biochemist Ernst Krebs PhD proposed that cancer was a deficiency disease: the deficiency being the factor linked for so long with cancer therapy. He identified the substance as part of the nitriloside group specifically, amygdalin, a cyanogenic glycoside first isolated, from the bitter almond, prunus amygdalus amara, in 1830 by the French chemists Robiquet and Boutron-Charland. Its chemical structure is D(1)-mandelonitrile-B-D-glucosido-6-6-B-glucoside, as recorded in the Merck Index, 1976.

Toxicologically, amygdalin falls between Class 1 and Class 2,36 which means it is virtually non-toxic. This compares with saccharin, between Class 3 and Class 4 and most ‘chemotherapy’: Class 6 – super toxic.

The Hunzas, a cancer-free society in the Himalayas, consume up to forty apricot kernels as an after-dinner snack. Coupled with the rest of their amygdalin-rich diet this constitutes an ingestion of 50 to 70 milligrams of the substance per day. According to Krebs: ‘There are many of us in the western world who do not ingest this amount…in the course of an entire year.’

Traditional Eskimos, the Hopi and Navajo tribes, the Abkhasians of the Caucasus Mountains and other notably cancer-free groups have amygdalin-rich diets.

After taking into account the required factors, Krebs allocated his substance the next available number on the vitamin B index: 17. He named his concentrated amygdalin preparation, Laetrile.

As many of the world’s cancer-free societies are outside of the polluted environment and distinctly advantaged in the quest to remain healthy, a group of Americans began, in the 1950s, to test Krebs’ theory:

‘For over two decades there has been a steadily-growing group of people who have accepted the vitamin theory of cancer and who have altered their diets accordingly. They represent all walks of life, all ages, both sexes, and reside in almost every advanced nation of the world. It is estimated that there are many thousands in the United States alone. It is significant, therefore, that after starting and maintaining a diet rich in vitamin B17, none of these people have ever been known to contract cancer.’37

Dr. Dean Burk, then head of the NCI, said he had been contacted, during the space of 12 months, by at least 750 people, including many MD physicians most of whom were ‘using it (B17) merely with prevention of development of cancer in view.’38

One of the first doctors to use Laetrile in the control of cancer was Dr. Maurice Kowan. This landed him in court in Los Angeles. The prosecutor told the jury: ‘This is not a kindly old man. This is the most thoroughly evil person the imagination can concoct…This man has to be stopped. He is very dangerous. The way to stop him is a guilty verdict.’39 Dr Kowan was heavily fined and, at the age of 70, sentenced to two months in prison.

The basis used by the cancer mafia for the attack on Dr. Kowan was a falsified report produced by two doctors, Garland and MacDonald in 1953. The two, who had ideal credentials by way of their being involved in surgery and radiation and in the promotion of cigarettes as a health measure, produced a report which stated that no evidence of anti-cancer changes were observed by the consultants using Laetrile: a report found, later, to be demonstrably fraudulent but which has been quoted religiously by vested cancer interests.

Nemesis took her revenge in appropriate fashion on the two, one with lung cancer and one in a fire suspected as being caused by a cigarette.

Dr. John A. Richardson began to use B17 in the summer of 1971. His first patient was the sister of one of his nurses: a case of advanced malignant melanoma of the arm. She had been given around six weeks to live with a little longer if she had the arm amputated.

‘Amygdalin was administered and almost immediately the lesions began to heal. Within two months her arm had returned to normal…’39

The woman was also a diabetic who, after the treatment, controlled her disease without insulin. When she returned to her original doctor he still wanted to amputate: she declined the offer.

Dr. Richardson’s successes with B17, Laetrile, the vegan diet etc. attracted increasing numbers of patients. ‘For the first time in my entire career I began to see "terminal" cancer patients abandon their stretchers and wheelchairs and return to normal lives of health and vigor…word of my successes with cancer patients…brought far more new patients than I could handle alone. I increased the staff…soon my little neighborhood practice was converted into a busy cancer clinic with patients from many States. The inevitable finally happened at ten in the morning, June 2 1972.’

Four cars screeched to a halt outside of the clinic and disgorged ten uniformed officers. Guns drawn, they burst into the clinic, flashed a search warrant as they passed a receptionist on their way into the clinic, where they pushed the doctor against the wall and searched him ‘for concealed weapons.’

Dr. Richardson and his two nurses were marched out past the specially-invited television cameras and were arrested under the Californian ‘anti-quackery’ laws.

‘At the time of the raid, a little girl about seven years old was in examination room number three. She had just begun metabolic therapy for an advanced case of osteogenic sarcoma…Kerry had responded beautifully in terms of increased appetite, weight gain, freedom from pain and a feeling of well-being…Normally, Kerry would have received a massive injection of vitamins including vitamin B17…not being sure what kind of legal trouble I would be in, I simply cleaned and dressed her lesions and sent her home…the little girl – as well as her parents – were greatly upset by the threatening presence of police officers. The child died three days later and there is no doubt in my mind that this death could have been postponed or avoided altogether if it hadn’t been for the raid.’

The concerted campaign, which was to last for years, to ruin Dr. Richardson; physically, mentally, financially, professionally and legally had begun.

The authorities revoked his medical licence and he was ordered to attend meetings 600 miles away in San Diego, with many of the hearings cancelled at the last minute; a procedure kept up at weekly intervals for six months.

The threat to the cancer business from effective therapies was taken very seriously from the beginning. By the 1940s the Syndicate had 300,000 names on its ‘quack’ files. Vitamin B17, being a unique threat due to its simplicity, attracted more concentrated attacks than all the other treatments put together: fraudulent test reports; hired, banner-carrying pickets outside clinics; rigged juries; newspaper character assassinations; dismissal of heretic employees, etc.

The FDA, orchestrating the onslaught, sent out 10,000 posters and hundreds of thousands of leaflets warning about the dangers of the toxicity of the non-toxic substance. Earlier, a Congressional Accounting Office had found that 350 FDA employees had shares in, or had refused to declare an interest in, the pharmaceutical industry.

After much searching, geographically and historically, the FDA came up with three alleged cases of deaths from Laetrile poisoning: this in a country where hundreds are killed daily by FDA-approved treatments.

Two were women who had swallowed vials of Laetrile which were for injection only and one was an eleven month old baby girl, one of whose parents was taking the medicine for cancer.

According to the FDA the child had become ill after she had ‘accidentally ingested up to 5 (500mg) tablets of Laetrile’. This was doubted by many including Dr Harold Manner:

‘…I was lecturing in Buffalo, New York and…after I had made some strong statements – a man stood up and said "Dr. Manner, how in the world can you make statements like that when the FDA is making these other statements?" I reiterated that the FDA statements were lies.

‘He said, "Look at this little girl in upstate New York, she took her father’s Laetrile tablets and died of cyanide poisoning." Just then a little lady stood up:

‘"Dr. Manner let me answer that question…I think I am entitled to because I am that little baby’s mother."

‘"That baby never touched her father’s Laetrile tablets."

‘The doctor…knowing the father was on Laetrile…marked down "possible cyanide poisoning". At the hospital they used a cyanide antidote and it was the antidote that killed the child. And yet that statement will continue to appear even though they know it is a lie.’40

The totally-fabricated stories of B17/Laetrile toxicity were eagerly grasped by the UK cancer combine. The ‘Dept. of Health’, aided by Gwyneth Dunwoody MP and her hysterical outbursts about ‘cyanide poisoning’, had apricot pit powder removed from the health food shop shelves.

In March 1984 the government brought in ‘The Medicines (Cyanogenetic Substances) Order 1984’. This Order meant that preparations which ‘..are presented for sale or supply under the name of, or as containing, amygdalin, laetrile or vitamin B17 or…contain more than 0.1 percent by weight…’ of the ‘cyanide-producing substances’ were to be under the control of the 1968 Medicines Act and, therefore, out of easy reach of any cancer patient who preferred to exercise freedom of choice instead of opting for the manslaughter on offer from the cancer hospitals.

The ‘0.1 percent’ figure shows the extent to which the cancer cartel were prepared to go to stop amygdalin. Apricot and bitter almond kernels are around 2 percent amygdalin and have long been found in British and Italian biscuits on supermarket shelves in the UK. The fact that the biscuits have not attracted any attention shows the non-toxicity of the substance and confirms it is only a danger to the cancer racketeers and not to the consumers.

A much greater farce, of course, is the fact that all the billions of seeds within the apricots, peaches, plums, cherries, apples, pears etc., sold by fruiterers since March 1984, are all in contravention of the Order.

Whilst the battle over B17 in the UK has remained mainly dormant, due to the lack of awareness on the part of most of the alternative health movement, the US has seen an ongoing, pitched battle; with the cancer establishment using any and all tactics to re-inforce the original Garland/MacDonald fraud. Animal research has played a fundamental role:

‘…in almost every case the "patients" tested…were mice (which do not have the same metabolism as humans)..the tumours were transplanted (which do not react the same as spontaneous tumours) and…in all of the experiments cited, reduction of tumour size was the primary criterion for evaluating results…there is nothing quite so easy to accomplish as failure.’39

Or success: depending on which animal you choose and whether he who bank-rolls the research wants a positive or a negative result.

Other attempts to discredit Laetrile involved force-feeding large amounts of cyanide, extracted from amygdalin, directly into dogs’ stomachs: in Laetrile therapy small doses are used and the cyanide component is released only by the cancer cell, in the presence of protective enzymes.

As the Laetrile/B17 suppression was demonstrably failing, with the ban being lifted in State after State, and as public pressure built up against the cancer fraudsters, the NCI were forced into a two-year, two hundred patient trial of the medicine. The official verdict having been already decided, it was paramount that the trial was rigged to confirm the authorised version. This was achieved by a multi-facetted approach.

‘Phase IV’ – dying – patients were selected. In normal synthetic drug trials early stage patients are chosen. The NCI admitted, ‘All patients had proven cancer, beyond any hope of cure or therapy known to extend life-expectancy.’

Laetrile was not used: a Laetrile manufacture by-product was substituted. The usual junk diet, including animal products, was allowed the patients. The injections were discontinued after 3 weeks, not three months. The criterion applied to the test was of tumour reduction, not the improvement in well being, appetite, lack of pain etc.

Missouri and West Virginia legalised Laetrile after the verdict; reasoning, presumably, that if the American Medical Association, the FDA and the American Cancer Society had tried to ban Laetrile, it must be of considerable value in treating cancer. The Memorial Sloan Kettering Institute sacked one its senior directors, Ralph Moss, for blowing the whistle on the cover-up.

Basically, the results were coming out positive and we in public affairs were told to say the results were negative and this went on for three years.’Moss.

Dr. Dean Burk, head of cytochemistry at the NCI for 34 years, stated:

‘Once any of the hierarchy so much as concede that Laetrile anti-tumour efficiency was indeed once observed in NCI experimentation, a permanent crack in the bureaucratic armor has taken place that can widen indefinitely by further appropriate experimentation.’

ESSIAC

Rene Caisse was a Canadian nurse. Whilst working in a northern Ontario hospital, in 1922, she noticed a healed scar on the breast of an elderly patient. The woman explained that thirty years earlier a Toronto doctor had diagnosed cancer and had recommended mastectomy. Declining the offer, she took the treatment offered her by an Ojibwa/Chippewa herbalist: the tumour began to shrink and disappeared.

Caisse’s first patient was her aunt, with advanced stomach cancer and six months to live: the aunt lived for another twenty years. Caisse treated thousands of patients over the years, mostly those who were diagnosed ‘incurable’ and damaged by orthodox treatment. Grateful patients and friends presented a 55,000-signature petition to the Canadian authorities to allow the treatment to be available to anyone without persecution from the cancer establishment or their government lackeys. The parliamentary vote was lost by three votes due to the behind-the-scenes activity of the College of Physicians and Surgeons.

Dr.Charles A. Brusch, former personal physician to President John F.Kennedy, stated: ‘Essiac is a cure for cancer, period.’ 44 Brusch treated the son of Senator Edward Kennedy. ‘He was being treated…by the Farber Cancer Institute…Dr.Farber didn’t know how to save him, because no-one had ever lived with this type of sarcoma…Brusch made the suggestion to put him on Essiac…after…he didn’t have a cancer cell anywhere in his body…but all this information has been hidden from the general public.’44 US journalist Scott E. Milners reported:

‘I spoke with a Seattle man recently…diagnosed with cancer of the tongue in 1990. It had spread to the lymph nodes of his neck. He was set… for…radiation and chemotherapy. His wife wanted him to try alternatives…he did, but his doctors did not want to listen to him when he told them about…the Essiac. After about 2½ weeks of radiation his tongue was burned like a canker sore. He lost 65 pounds. It took from 4am to 8am to drink his vitamins and juices.

‘The tumour was shrinking…By the seventh week the radiation had burned the neck so that it looked like raw meat. He stopped the radiation in May 1992. One month later the doctors removed 39 lymph nodes from his neck and there was no cancer in any of them…He still has no cancer today…He takes Essiac daily…he tries to tell the doctors…but they don’t want to listen.’

Rene Caisse died in 1978: by this time she had amassed a very large body of evidence, in the form of patients’ files and other documentation, on the efficacy of the Essiac treatment.

The ‘Canadian Ministry of Health and Welfare’ immediately had the whole of the records destroyed.

A Medical Nuremberg

Whilst those doctors, nurses etc., involved in the carnage, have, through fear, ignorance or finance, kept their heads well down. There have been some honest observers who have taken a stand. ‘Imagine for a moment a procedure in which the luckless victim were anaesthetised…during the anaesthetic his or her body was cut open and had parts removed. As short a time after the operation as possible, the person is exposed to several doses of nuclear emissions so that the symptoms of radiation sickness are suffered. Finally, sub-lethal amounts of drugs are injected with horrifying side-effects. If this villainy were perpetrated as a punishment on a child-strangler, or mass-murderer, its degree of barbarity would still raise a clamour of protest…carried out as an unsuccessful therapeutic measure in cases of advanced cancer, on the other hand, seems to make it alright…

‘Medical Malpraxis is defined in the Gould Medical Dictionary as "improper or injurious medical or surgical treatment through carelessness, ignorance or intent"!…Another authority goes further to mention that: "A more serious criminal lack of care arising from deliberate disregard for the care and safety of other persons constitutes manslaughter. Could it not be criminal and, thus, manslaughter if the patient, so treated dies of his treatment rather than of his disease?"’33

’17 out of every 20 cancer victims shouldn’t have cancer. They have been murdered by the callous indifference of the people with power.’41

‘The medical model regards cancer as a new race of cells bent on destroying its host by non-cooperation and over-breeding. The invaders are to be killed off by cutting them out, by burning them or poisoning them, preferably short of killing their host. The treatment is conducted by teams of specialised professionals using the body as a passive battleground…. The old idea that a doctor should ‘first do no harm’ has been forgotten…No wonder that the public is beginning to revolt against such barbarous treatment.’42

‘There will be a medical edition of the Nuremberg trials. The atrocities now being committed in the name of orthodox medicine, the suppression of life-giving data, the needless loss of lives, mutilation of bodies and excessive suffering will not continue to be tolerated…ultimately these criminals and their political lackeys will be brought to trial…’43

SURVIVAL

In the healthy body, the immune system defences deal with the ever-present, potentially-cancerous cells. There is no element, whatsoever, of bad luck in the incidence of cancer: it does not strike, like a bolt from the blue, sick and healthy alike. It is an end process of neglected, suppressed ill-health.

The ever-increasing immuno-assault, coupled with the out-of-control carcinogenic saturation of the environment, drinking water, food, medicines etc. and the medical trade’s steadfast refusal to stop the legalised slaughter of consensus cancer treatment; all call for individualised action on prevention.

Cancer prevention is divided into two overlapping areas: maintenance of the cancer defences, i.e. the promotion, cultivation and maintenance of health on all its planes and the avoidance of the carcinogens – known and suspected.

Nutrition

The incidence, severity, and control of cancer depend, more than any other single factor, on diet, with Vit. B17 foods as a priority.

Homo sapiens is a frugivore; designed by the Creator, whoever that may be, to live on raw, organically-grown of course, fruit. Man can also do very well on vegetables, rice, peas, beans etc., but is not by any means suited to meat, milk, cheese, butter, eggs, fish etc. We have the teeth, jaw-action, digits, perspiration mechanism, stomach acid strength, intestinal length…of a strict non-animal eater. The Book of Genesis is quite clear on the subject – the Bible-censors slipped up badly when they missed it. AVOID:

  • All animal foods – meat, milk, cheese, butter, eggs, fish…and the derivatives – whey, egg albumen, gelatin…etc. These products are a fibreless mixture of saturated fats, cholesterol, steroid growth-promoters/vaccine/antibiotic/ pesticide/herbicide etc. residues, mastitis pus, disinfectant, salmonella, listeria, campylobacter, E coli 0157, etc., etc…
  • Refined carbohydrates – sugar, white flour, bread, biscuits, cakes etc.
  • Synthetic food additives-preservatives, colourants, etc. READ THE LABELS
  • Food prepared or contained in aluminium, copper, non-stick cookware or prepared in microwave ovens; smoked foods; very hot food and drinks.

Use salt, celery, parsley, parsnips, deep-fried foods…in strict moderation.

Utensils washed in washing-up liquid must be very thoroughly rinsed; in preference, use washing soda, soap flakes etc.

EAT:

  • Organically-grown, if possible, fruit, vegetables, peas, beans, rice: chemically-grown carrots are out. Non-organic cabbage, broccoli, sprouts, mushrooms etc. should be boiled for a couple of minutes in salted water, drained and rinsed, then cooked. Lettuce and similar foods which cannot be cleansed with this process or peeled should be home-grown or avoided.
  • Emphasise raw foods; whole grain breads; soya products: tofu, soymilk, miso.
  • Eat B17 foods regularly – seeds of apricot, peach, plum, cherry, apple; sprouted alfalfa, mung and wheat seeds; millet, lentils, watercress, lima beans, blackeye beans, broccoli, cabbage, buckwheat, linseed etc.
  • Garlic is the supreme plant from a physician’s and a cook’s point of view: eat it raw, cooked: grow it: use it as a medicine for everything from cancer and tuberculosis to coughs, colds, infections, high blood pressure, whooping cough, chemical/heavy metal/radiation detoxification etc., etc.
  • Use some form of water filter if only a jug type: areas where fluoride-waste has been dumped in the public drinking water supply will require reverse osmosis or distillation to remove the chemical.
  • Look after the liver: take the juice of a lemon in water on rising; wait a half hour before taking breakfast.
  • Fast one or two days per month on purified water or pure fruit juice; or per week if the will power is there.
  • The Green Drink: gather unpolluted nettles, dandelion, chickweed, nasturtium, carrot tops, cabbage etc.; wash well, blend with water, put through coarse sieve, drink: put the residue, in small amounts, in the dog’s/cat’s meal and help avoid the vet’s bills and a sick/prematurely-dead animal – from the effects of the vet’s treatment.
  • Chew all food thoroughly and slowly; without distraction from the television, radio, newspapers or relatives.
  • Alcoholic drinks, preferably organically produced, in moderation and in the evenings can be immuno-supportive and a relatively safe, effective soporific, cleanser and sedative.

Prof. Aviles, of the Mexican Cancer Biochemistry Dept., saw 7,715 cancer patients over 15 years: 99% suffered chronic constipation, the degree of malignancy parallel to the intensity of the constipation. Colon cleanliness is fundamentality important to the prevention of cancer and other chronic, degenerative diseases: anyone on Doctor’s Balanced Diet or worse, for decades, might well be carrying 5 to 25 pounds – or more – of rotting waste in the colon; poisoning and robbing the system of nutrients. A herbal/ nutritional cleansing regime will remove the residue in time.

Further Tips

  • Try to wear cotton or other natural material next to the skin. Expose the eyes to natural light as often as possible, without spectacles or contact lenses.
  • The wearing of a bra for long periods is a major factor in the development of breast cancer. A study on 5,000 US women, showed that 99 percent of the women in the cancer group had worn a bra for 12 hours or more per day; 80 percent in the non-cancer group: 18 percent of the cancer group slept in their bra; 3 percent in the non-cancer group: 0.24 percent of the women in the cancer group were non-bra wearers; 3 percent in the non group. The study’s authors, Singer and Grismaijer, state that the correlation between the wearing of a bra and breast cancer is between 4 and 12 times greater than the correlation between cigarettes and lung cancer. Wearing a bra continually, 24 hours a day, showed a 125-times greater incidence of breast cancer than no bra wearing at all and a 113 times greater incidence than wearing a bra 12 hours per day. Constriction of the lymph system is an invitation to toxic build-up: providing that there is no evidence of a malignant tumour, the breasts should be massaged to increase the detox procedure and the bra should be worn only when considered to be necessary and certainly no more than 12 hours a day.

Synthetics

  • All ingestion of synthetics, by mouth, nose or skin is to be avoided wherever possible – food and drink additives, fly sprays, aerosol polishes and air fresheners, vehicle exhausts. Avoid all products of the pharmaceutical industry – pain-killers, fever suppressants, antibiotics, vaccines, fluoride products, steroids etc.
  • Garlic, cayenne and cider vinegar, alone, would replace the majority of the 700,000,000-plus prescriptions shelled out by GPs per year. Put the three – organically produced – in a bottle and keep in the fridge. Take diluted in water, daily.

Electromagnetic pollution

  • Electro magnetic sources cannot be avoided in normal life: everything, from electric pylons to quartz analogue watches, is a potential hazard. The rule is Prudent Avoidance: keep away from electric appliances as far as is practical.
  • Keep your distance when electrical devices, particularly those with transformers, are operative. View television from the side and preferably at least ten feet away. Switch off and unplug devices whenever practical.
  • The use of, or the being in the vicinity of, or the consumption of food from, microwave ovens is absolutely out: portable telephones are for real emergencies only: fluorescent lights are to be avoided except for small, unavoidable periods.
  • Do not leave electric blankets plugged in at night when the bed is occupied: the bedroom should be free of electrical devices if possible. Wires are also EM sources as are the mains switch boxes. Use computers only if necessary; the rear of the device also emits large doses of radiation. Keep beds away from the rear of TVs and VDUs whether there is a wall between or not.
  • Consider an independent survey to determine any EM sources in and around the home or workplace.
  • Medical X-rays are for compound fractures, bullets in the head, chest etc.: not for routine screening or for doctors to order in large doses to protect then from possible future litigation in case they missed something.

Geopathic stress

  • GS is caused by the Earth’s natural radiation being made harmful by underground streams, certain minerals, faults etc.: it is detected by dowsing.
  • GS has been blamed for a very wide range of conditions, physical and mental; cancer included: some experienced practitioners have said that all of their cancer cases are people who have spent prolonged periods in geo-stressed areas. Studies on travelling peoples have shown a significantly lower figure of cancer incidence.
  • Counter measures include placing coils of wire at certain points around the building, moving beds and chairs and installing multi-wave oscillators.

Herbs

  • Herbal treatments are part of the nutritional approach to cancer control. Other than garlic and cayenne, specifics for cancer include red clover, periwinkle, yellow dock, dandelion, mistletoe, violet, blue flag, purple cone flower, golden seal, sage, etc. – as part of a total holistic package.
  • The full, original ESSIAC formula contains sheep’s sorrel, Turkish rhubarb, burdock, slippery elm, water cress, kelp, red clover and blessed thistle. The first four are the ones used, usually, today. Proprietary brands may have substitutes in their formulae.
  • Herbs should be bought from a reliable source, with guarantees that they have not been fumigated or irradiated.
  • Herb mixtures need to be prepared carefully with regard to the instructions laid down by those experienced in their usage. They work slowly, with the inherent healing force, to restore harmony within the body.

The Outer Layers

  • Health is multi-dimensional: harmony is needed on all the planes; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Continued stress, whether it be caused by cigarette smoke or memories of childhood unhappiness, will, if the pre-disposition is there, lead to a breakdown of the cancer control mechanism.
  • Suppressed negative emotions – grief, resentment, jealousy, anger, fear…can poison just as effectively as junk food or junk medicine or environmental pollution. Whether through counselling, meditation or healing, the demon must be exorcised: the mirror faced.
  • The cancer personality is a reality: its degree of importance varying from person to person, as part of the total stress load on the body’s inherent capacity to maintain the status quo – health.
  • The difference between what is important and what is less so must be understood: important things are smelling flowers, talking to cats and dogs, watching insects, standing in the woodland stream, writing and reading poetry…

Whatever actions were taken by the authorities, immediately and totally, to rectify the scenario, all that could be hoped for would be a damage limitation. As it is, not only will there be no attempt at this limitation, the cancer-makers are continuing to enjoy the full and enthusiastic approval of the government, the medical trade, the bureaucrats, the media and the rest.

How much of this is deliberate or through the usual crass incompetence, is of academic interest only.

The cancer wipe-out, scheduled for some time next century, seems inevitable unless some other disaster intervenes first.

Individualised actions, in the form of personal lifestyle changes and the dissemination of currently suppressed information, are the order of the day.
