Aspartame Effects

Aspartame Almost Killed Me!

By Cathy Alexander

OpEdNews  March 30, 2009

My name is Cathy Alexander, age 52, from Tennessee. Here is my story: MY BATTLE WITH ASPARTAME POISON. 

In 2005 I had an operation on my abdomen, and there were 100 days of recovery time.

A week after I got up one morning and my legs folded under me. I could not walk and my mind was so cloudy I could not remember what day it was.  I was very frightened because I had never felt this way before, not once in my entire life! I would hold on to whatever was near, holding unto the walls to get down the hall to the bathroom, falling along the way.

I was so scared: I had never felt this way before.  I had no insurance. I went to 3 different ER’s at three different county hospitals.  First, they all thought I was on drugs or drunk and I wasn’t. With all kinds of testing they could not find anything.

I had to come up with the money to go to a Neurologist who tested me and did spinal taps. Nothing showed up. So the neurologist and another doctor said it was acute cerebellitis and that I would be better in about 6 months. By that time it was the same or even worse.

I had no balance or any motor skills. It was like my muscles were soft and did not work. I do not take prescriptions for nervous or antidepressants, but I was very shaky and very depressed. I did not care to live.

I would wake up and cry because I was still here another day.  I was clumsy, dizzy, and suffered from blurred and double vision. I could not remember anything from the day before. My speech was slurred.  I had to have around the clock care, so my best friend took care of me. I almost lost all my hearing and eyesight.

The doctors gave me all kinds of medications but nothing worked. I used a walker for a while and even then I would be walking across the yard and just fall, like mini strokes, 5 to 10 times a day.

My best friend heard the famous Aspartame/Neurologist, Dr. Russell Blaylock on a short wave radio telling about Aspartame and symptoms, and how to test to see if it is what you have. So i went back to talk to my own physician, Dr. Lewis

I told my doctor "When this first hit me, you asked me how many diet drinks I had a day.I did not lie to him but said at least one or two a day. He asked me to stop but I never did until the day came when I went back to him I told him i did not tell him the whole truth, that I drink 5 or more daily, as well as many other sugarfree products,  Crystal Lite, and sugarfree gum, all having aspartame in it.

He told me to get off all aspartame for 90 days. That is the same thing Dr. Blaylock said to do. So I did.  After about four weeks, my eyesight and hearing got better. My pain had lessened as it was before all this happened.

My doctor knew all about Aspartame poison. He had done research on it a few years ago when his wife was sick from it. The last 9 months I had kidneystone problems. I never reported this to my kidney doctor because so many doctors don’t believe in aspartame poisoning, or even appear to have the slightest understanding of what should have been obvious among their patients, with so many identical symptoms, all deriving from their use of "diet" products.

About two months I told my kidney doctor about me having aspartame poisoning awhile back. He said he wished he had known because then he would known something different to try for my stones.  I have had 21 kidney stone operations in the last nine months.

The doctor thought my body was making the acid that makes the stones. But the poison shut down the tubes that filters the acid to and from my kidneys. So he doubled my medications for stones; now they have almost all of them.

WHAT ASPARTAME DID TO MY LIFE AND MY CONDITION

I have always been a hard worker, quick thinking, and never forgotful. I could go to stores and start talking to anyone about anything. I never met a stranger. I was a sales person many years and was really proficient. I had that kind of outgoing personality.

Aspartame took all that from me.

Now I go in and out of stores as fast as I can, hoping no one will speak to me because of my memory loss. I can’t even think of anything to say to anyone. I cannot be friendly or even smile to people who I don’t know. I really feel like a nobody.

At times I feel like I am only here to love my grandkids and feel their love. My grandchildren caused me to fight to overcome what aspartame has done to my life. Even after over a year and a half of being aspartame free, I stay very depressed and can’t comprehend. I can’t remember things unless the thought is triggered. I still have sore and soft muscles and no strength, and I still have pain in my joints. NO PERSONALITY AT ALL.

I cannot drive because of falling asleep all the time from the narcolepsy, and that I never had before.

Each day has gotten better on all other things since I made the forced decision to remain aspartame free. I had no medications to help me through this. All it took was getting off aspartame.

I am sure i would have died if I had not got off of it.

I know the aspartame took over my body when it was the weakest. Aspartame almost killed me. In some aspects, it actually did kill me. I feel like aspartame is a time bomb: you drink and carry it around in your body., while it waits for a weak point in your immunosystem to be explode itself. After all, it is metabolized as methanol, formaldehyde, diketopiperazine (proven to cause brain tumors) and a witch’s brew of other deadly and proven poisons.

How does anyone know when they are going to have a bad operation or a car wreck or become sick? If aspartame did not remain not stored in your body, in the chromosomes, the RNA, and mitochondria, people would have a better chance to recover.

Today is Nov.5th 2008 I had to get a shot in my right knee for the arthritis I have in my joints that worsened with the poison. Aspartame also has been proven to dry up the synovial fluid, in the joints, and this was proven in the very first tests done by Searle in Central America, but that was always concealed from the FDA, and only after whistleblowers let out the truth, did anyone know about it. I believe it is also at the heart of the range of symptoms and illnesses that together are called FIBROMYALGIA.

POSTSCRIPTS:

Today is Dec. 18th 2008 and I got shots in my right hip for the arthritis in my joints that worsened since the poison. I guess I will have to have them in all joints. They are helping. . THIS IS MY STORY FOR NOW Dec.18th 2008. I WILL ADD MORE AS I REMEMBER IT.

Feb-2009 Now I have had 25 kidneystone operations in 11 months. Right now I am going to the hospital every 12 hours. I have a pickline where the give me Fortaz antibiotic for 10 days. All the stones keep causing me to have a E. Coli infection in my left kidney; this is the 2nd one in the past 2 months. I am looking at maybe loosing my left kidney.

ALL BECAUSE OF ASPARTAME POSION! Where are the American Attorneys and Attorneys General who are willing to take on Ajinomoto, Coca Cola, Pepsi, Wrigley’s Gum, Equal/Merisant, and so many pharmaceutical companies?

Were Tainted Vaccines a Conspiracy to Provoke a Pandemic?

Dr. Mercola March 26 2009

Czech newspapers are questioning whether the shocking discovery of vaccines contaminated with the deadly avian flu virus — distributed to 18 countries by the American company Baxter — were part of a conspiracy to provoke a pandemic.
Because of laboratory protocols that are routine for vaccine makers, mixing a live virus biological weapon with vaccine material by accident is virtually impossible.

Baxter flu vaccines contaminated with H5N1 (the human form of avian flu) were received by labs in the Czech Republic, Germany and Slovenia. Initially, Baxter refused to reveal how the vaccines were contaminated with H5N1, invoking “trade secrets.” After increased pressure, they then claimed that pure H5N1 batches were sent by accident.

But in the Czech Republic, reporters are investigating whether the contamination was part of a deliberate attempt to start a pandemic.
The fact that Baxter mixed the deadly H5N1 virus with a mix of H3N2 seasonal flu viruses may be the smoking gun. The H5N1 virus on its own has killed hundreds of people, but it is less airborne. However, when combined with seasonal flu viruses, which are more easily spread, the effect could be a potent, airborne, deadly biological weapon.

Dr. Mercola’s Comments:

Last month vaccine maker Baxter International sent a mix of flu vaccine and unlabelled H5N1 virus (the human form of bird flu) to an Austrian research company. Expecting the shipment to contain only flu vaccine, the Austrian company then sent portions of the contaminated product to the Czech Republic, Slovenia and Germany. It was only when researchers at a Czech Republic laboratory injected ferrets with the vaccine, and they unexpectedly died, that the contamination mistake was discovered.

But is “mistake” really an accurate term to describe this?
If this batch of live bird flu and seasonal flu viruses had reached the public, it could have resulted in dire consequences. Even though H5N1 doesn’t easily infect people, the flu virus does. So if people were exposed to both of these viruses, they would have become hosts for the combined viruses, and would have become highly contagious and able to transmit the deadly bird flu virus to others.
There is actually a name for this mixing of viruses; it’s called “reassortment,” and even The Canadian Press has pointed out that it is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created.

Could the Contamination Have Been a Plot to Start a Deadly Pandemic?

A spokesman for Baxter said the virus material was supposed to contain a seasonal flu virus and was contaminated after “human error.”
Yet, other sources say Baxter International adheres to something called BSL3 (Biosafety Level 3). This strict set of laboratory safety protocols is in place to prevent the cross-contamination of materials, and according to some may have made it virtually impossible for the live bird flu virus to contaminate a flu vaccine by accident.
Czech newspapers are among those questioning whether this was a deliberate act to start a pandemic, and there’s even been talk of plans to use the vaccines to carry out a form of population control.
But then there’s the issue of motive. Would Baxter have had any reason to carry out such a malicious and deadly scheme?
Well, if a bird flu pandemic suddenly broke out, the demand for bird flu vaccines would certainly skyrocket … and the profits from such a mass vaccination program would be astronomical.

Does the Past Give us Any Clues?

You may be thinking that such a conspiracy is too far-fetched to be accurate. But it is worth mentioning that some scientists say the most recent global outbreak — the 1977 Russian flu — was started by a virus leaked from a laboratory.
Further, drug companies are certainly not best known for their sterling moral values.
In 2006, for instance, it came out that the drug company Bayer sold millions of dollars worth of an injectable blood-clotting medicine to Asian, Latin American, and some European countries in the mid-1980s, even though they knew it was tainted with the AIDS virus.
So while it is unthinkable that a drug company would knowingly contaminate flu vaccines with a deadly bird flu virus, it is certainly not impossible.

How to Prevent All Flu’s, Even the “Deadly Ones,” Without Vaccinations

Whether or not the conspiracy theory is true, this whole scenario brings up two very important points:

1. Vaccines can be contaminated with dangerous substances (even above and beyond their already dangerous components)
2. Vaccines are not the answer to protecting yourself from flu outbreaks of any kind

Remember back in 2005, when headlines warned that the U.S. was facing a cataclysmic extermination event, with a calculated 2 million Americans succumbing to the bird flu, and the best-case scenario taking only 200,000 lives?
The case of “the impending pandemic of the Avian Flu” might as well have been a fictional mini-series, as it never materialized. What was really going on was a scenario filled with greed and political corruption.
By igniting fear in the public and massaging some key statistics, the powers-that-be were able to justify the expense of a massive vaccine stockpile to ward off the bird flu.
At $100 per dose, the United States used taxpayers’ dollars to purchase some 20 million doses of the highly questionable Tamiflu, lining the pockets of then Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld who was president of Gilead Sciences when they created the drug.
But I digress. If you want to read more about all the lies and corruption surrounding the avian “super-flu” that never was, read my book The Great Bird Flu Hoax.
For now, my point is that there are always going to be threats of flu pandemics, real or created, and there will always be potentially toxic vaccines that are peddled as the solution.
But you can break free of that whole drug-solution trap by following some natural health principles.
I have not caught the flu in 20 years, and you can avoid it too, without getting vaccinated, by following these simple guidelines, which will keep your immune system in optimal working order so that you’re far less likely to acquire the infection to begin with.

Optimize Your Vitamin D Levels. Getting appropriate amounts of sunshine (or taking a vitamin D supplement when you can’t get healthy amounts of sun exposure) is one of my KEY preventive strategies against the cold and flu, as it has such a strengthening effect on your immune system.
Avoid Sugar and Eat Right for Your Nutritional Type. Sugar decreases the function of your immune system almost immediately, and as you likely know, a strong immune system is key to fighting off viruses and other illness. Be aware that sugar is present in foods you may not suspect, like ketchup and fruit juice.
Get Enough Rest. Just like it becomes harder for you to get your daily tasks done if you’re tired, if your body is overly fatigued it will be harder for it to fight the flu.
Deal With Stress. We all face some stress everyday, but if stress becomes overwhelming then your body will be less able to fight off the flu and other illness.
If you feel that stress is taking a toll on your health, consider using the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), which is remarkably effective in relieving stress associated with all kinds of events, from work to family to trauma.
Exercise. When you exercise, you increase your circulation and your blood flow throughout your body. The components of your immune system are also better circulated, which means your immune system has a better chance of finding an illness before it spreads. • Take a Good Source of Omega-3 Fats Like Krill Oil. Increase your intake of healthy and essential fats like the omega-3 found in krill oil, which is crucial for maintaining health.
Wash Your Hands. Washing your hands with plain soap and water will decrease your likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people. But don’t overdo it. Washing your hands too much can actually remove much of the protective layer on your skin and increase your changes of acquiring an infection.
Eat Garlic Regularly. Garlic works like a broad-spectrum antibiotic against bacteria, virus, and protozoa in the body. And unlike with antibiotics, no resistance can be built up so it is an absolutely safe product to use.

Enviro Groups Lie About Study in Last Ditch Effort to Have Silver Regulated by EPA as a “Pesticide”

Enviro Groups Lie About Study in Last Ditch Effort to Have Silver Regulated by EPA as a "Pesticide" 

March 16, 2009

Well, don’t say I didn’t warn you there would be more dirty tricks in the closing days of the campaign by radical environmental groups to have silver regulated as a "pesticide" by the EPA.
Here’s what I stated in my previous post:
"Without a doubt you can expect more dirty tricks from these rabid environmentalists in the coming weeks, including the last-minute posting of “studies” demonstrating their contention that silver nano-particles are somehow ‘harmful’ to the environment.The enviro-nuts will most likely wait until the very last minute to present these studies to the EPA because they know it will not leave time for our side to review and digest them, and provide point-by-point rebuttals or refutations.The environmental groups have also already cited studies which they claim “prove” silver nano-particles harm humans as well as the animals in the environment.But of course, what they never disclose is the fact that those studies were done under controlled laboratory conditions that simply don’t exist in the environment. And that in every case, either huge overdoses of silver nano-particles were used, or living cells and tissues were exposed to pure silver nanoparticles in ways that simply could not be duplicated outside of the laboratory, and therefore have no bearing on human or animal real-life experiences with silver."

Right on Target
Boy was I ever right. In fact, this time the enviro-nuts have really outdone themselves by waiting until just a few short days before the close of the EPA public comments period on March 20th to unleash the following missive against silver, which is full of outright lies, distortions and half-truths, as you will see once we dissect and deconstruct it phrase by phrase. Here is what the environmentalists are now claiming:
"Yet another major study on nano-silver toxicity has been published during the comment period. The study found that nano-silver used in food storage materials, such as plastic bags and containers, can directly interact with genomes and bind with DNA, interfering with DNA replication. Hundreds of consumer products incorporating nanomaterials are now on the market, including cosmetics, sunscreens, sporting goods, clothing, electronics, baby and infant products, and food and food packaging, many of which contain nano-silver. Help us ensure that these products are safe by supporting our petition to the EPA."
Cutting Through the Hype and Exaggerations
Let’s dissect this bold little missive phrase by phrase, and see if we can’t put our collective fingers on the devious modus operandi being used by these radical environmental groups in their campaign on behalf of the big drug companies to regulate products containing silver nano-particles into oblivion:
First they state, "Yet another major study on nano-silver toxicity has been published during the comment period."
What’s wrong with that statement? First of all, the study they are referencing is hardly what you could call a "major" study. It is in fact a very small study conducted in the People’s Republic of China (yes, Red China, home of the melamine scandal and tainted toothpaste scare) by a little known group calling themselves the Bio-X Life Science Research Center.
Interestingly, the Bio-X Life Science Research Center admit on their own web site that they are operating in association with two major drug companies, AstraZeneca International and Roche.
Who are These 2 Big Drug Companies?
Roche (aka Hoffman-LaRoche) is a huge, well-known multi-national drug company which makes Bactrim, Rocephin, Lariam, Tamiflu, Invirase and numerous other antibiotic and antiviral drugs for the treatment of infectious diseases.
AstraZeneca, another huge, multi-national drug company, state right on their web site that they too are focusing a large part of their business model on developing and marketing infection-fighting antibiotic and anti-viral drugs and vaccines. In fact, they state, “We aim to build a leading franchise in the treatment of infectious diseases by increasing the sales of the marketed brands Synagis, Merrem and Flumist and bringing new products to market by exploiting our structural and genomic-based discovery technologies and our antibody platforms.”
In other words, the group behind the study supposedly demonstrating that nano-silver is harmful is, in reality, in bed with two of the largest drug companies on the face of the earth, both of which are major players in the antibiotic drug, anti-viral drug and vaccine markets.
These are the among the very same drug companies that hate colloidal silver and other silver-based products the most, and have the most to lose if silver ever becomes a major resource in products designed to prevent and cure infections and related disease!
More Deception and Exaggeration from the Environmentalists
Once their first exaggeration is established, the radical environmentalists go on to say in their statement that “The study found that nano-silver used in food storage materials, such as plastic bags and containers, can directly interact with genomes and bind with DNA, interfering with DNA replication.
Sounds serious. But is this true? No. Once again, it is a cleverly worded deception.
First of all, according to the study abstract, the study authors first openly admit that “…information on whether or how nanosilver particles bring changes in genetic materials remains scant.”
In other words, the study authors admit they simply don’t know whether or not tiny particles of silver bring about changes in genetic materials, or how it might happen if they did. It is all speculation. And that speculation is fueled by the radical neo-Luddite environmentalists who oppose the use of tiny silver nano-particles in on behalf of the major drug companies who pay their bills.
Secondly, and most importantly, the study is not even specifically designed to prove that products containing silver nanoparticles are potentially harmful to humans, or even that silver nano-particles could, by themselves, could harm to humans. Yet the environmentalists would have you believe the exact opposite.
Indeed, their statement is cleverly designed to make you think that the study authors actually took plastic bags and other containers with silver particles embedded in them and tested to see whether or not the silver would somehow leach from the bag or container, and then enter a human being and harm human DNA replication. In reality, the study did no such thing.
What Really Happened
Here’s what the researchers actually did, and what the study actually demonstrated:
First, the researchers exposed E. coli cell cultures – not human cell cultures, but bacterial cell cultures — to three different types of nanosilver, including colloidal silver. (As most people know, E. coli, also known as Escherichia coli, is a gram negative bacteria most widely known for its ability to cause food poisoning.)
And what did they find? They found that “The results showed that the replication fidelity of the rpsL gene was differentially compromised by all three kinds of nanosilver particle compared with that without nanosilver.”
In other words, they discovered that silver disrupts the ability of this infectious microorganism to replicate. That’s it. They actually proved what colloidal silver users have been saying all along, i.e., that tiny particles of silver destroy pathogens from the inside out!
So what did this study have to do with human cells? NOTHING. And what did this study have to do with products containing silver nano-particles? NOTHING.
The Truth Be Told

We all know that as far back as the 1980’s researchers like Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D. used tiny electrical devices to generate minute silver particles directly into the surgical wound sites of patients suffering from debilitating and potentially deadly bone infections, and not only did these researchers cure every supposedly “incurable” bone infection with the electrically generated silver, but they also found no harm whatsoever was caused to the patients’ cells, tissues or bones in spite of the fact that the silver was being generated directly into the bone, tissues, cells and surrounding bodily fluids.
Indeed, using this process damaged cells were rejuvenated, and remarkable new growth took place in the damaged bone bringing about complete healing.
The bottom line is that the study being touted by the radical environmentalists as proof of silver’s “toxicity” to humans merely demonstrated, at best, that if you put a sandwich inside of a sandwich baggie or other container that’s been embedded with silver micro-particles, you’re probably not going to get food poisoning, because the dirty little critters like E. coli simply can’t live in the presence of silver.
Nevertheless, the radical environmentalists go on to somberly intone in their latest misleading missive: “Hundreds of consumer products incorporating nanomaterials are now on the market, including cosmetics, sunscreens, sporting goods, clothing, electronics, baby and infant products, and food and food packaging, many of which contain nano-silver. Help us ensure that these products are safe by supporting our petition to the EPA."
What they’ve done, in essence, is taken a study that proves three different forms of nano-silver – including colloidal silver — are highly effective against one of the most prevalent and potentially deadly food poisoning bacteria on the face of the earth. And they’ve cleverly re-defined the study results so that it sounds as if they study proved nano-silver has now been demonstrated to harm humans!
Clever re-definition of the facts…deceptive wording…and ruthlessly self-serving conclusions. That, in a nutshell, is the modus operandi of the radical environmentalists.

Sunday Times’ London Editor Must Quit Over False “Wakefield MMR Data Fixing” Story

Posted on February 19, 2009 by childhealthsafety

The position of John Witherow, Chief Editor of the internationally published British broadsheet newspaper The Sunday Times, London is looking untenable in the escalating row over freelance journalist, Brian Deer’s now shown-to-be-false Sunday Times’ story alleging former London Royal Free Hospital surgeon and gastroenterology specialist Mr Andrew Wakefield “fixed” data in a Lancet medical journal paper to show a link between the MMR vaccine, autism and serious bowel disorders in children: MMR doctor Andrew Wakefield fixed data on autism” – Brian Deer, The Sunday Times, London – February 8, 2009.

The Sunday Times’ story was improbable and shown to be false: Sunday Times Journalist Made Up Wakefield MMR Data Fixing Allegation .  Late last night the companion story was amended online with a statement “This article is the subject of a legal complaint” [Hidden records show MMR truth Brian Deer, The Sunday Times – February 8, 2009].

For the allegation in freelancer Brian Deer’s story to be true meant that for 10 years the claimed single-handed action by specialist surgeon Mr Wakefield had gone unnoticed by the other 12 eminent former and current London Royal Free Hospital medical authors.  10 of the authors in March 2004 partially retracted the  suggested interpretation in the paper of a possible link between the MMR vaccine and autism in an attempt to alleviate the outcry from British politicians and Government health officials.  The bulk of the Lancet paper still stands and has been replicated in other scientific studies [See end].

A letter received by Editor Witherow late yesterday charges:-

The journalist Brian Deer and The Sunday Times, London have breached the overall obligations of the PCC Code regarding the “duty to maintain the highest professional standards” and The Sunday Times is also in breach by publishing such a story.  The journalist Brian Deer has demonstrated a remarkable lack of professionalism, a disregard for professional ethics and an obsessive interest in Dr Wakefield, belying the detachment, objectivity and impartiality of a modern professional journalist in the 21st Century.

Mr Deer has demonstrated gross breaches of professional ethics in his behaviour and reporting, including his personal interest in making the complaints which have led to the extraordinary and intensive General Medical Council proceedings against Dr Andrew Wakefield.  In short, Mr Deer stands to lose professionally should his complaints to the GMC prove not to be upheld and he has a personal interest in publishing stories to prejudice the GMC panel against Dr Wakefield to see that they are, which seems could well be one of the purposes of the story under complaint.  Very much the same charges could be levelled at The Sunday Times itself in its reporting and that of its sister paper, The Times, London.“  [Full text below]

Writing in The Spectator, political commentator and respected British journalist Melanie Phillips said following ChildHealthSafety’s exclusive worldwide disclosures:-

What the Sunday Times did not report was that the GMC investigation into Wakefield was triggered by a complaint from… Brian Deer, who furnished the allegations against him four years ago. He has thus been reporting upon the hearing into his own complaint. Since when has a reputable paper published a story by a reporter who is actually part of that story himself — without saying so – and who uses information arising from the disciplinary hearing which he himself has instigated and which is investigating allegations he himself made in the first place?

The witch-hunt against Andrew Wakefield Wednesday, 11th February 2009

Dr. Mercola’s Comments:

I have enormous respect for Dr. Wakefield, as in my opinion he is one of the most well-respected academic researchers on autism in the world. This latest attempt to smear his name, in which freelancer Brian Deer said he “changed and misreported results in his research, creating the appearance of a possible link with autism,” has been called out for what it is: fraud.
In order to understand the graveness of this latest attack, it helps to first know a bit of background.
Sadly, Dr. Wakefield has been persecuted for more than a decade by both Pharma-funded special interest groups as well as public health officials maintaining close relationships with vaccine manufacturers.
His crime?
Daring to publish a study in The Lancet in 1998 calling for more scientific investigation into the possible link between the
MMR vaccine and autism.
What he and colleagues identified was a previously unknown combination of bowel disease and autism in 12 children. Bowel symptoms are common in autistic children but had until then been regarded as simply a manifestation of their behavioral problems.
The finding that these children had real and severe bowel disease was a groundbreaking discovery in and of itself, but then, against the advice of others in the team, Dr. Wakefield explained in the paper that eight parents said their previously normal child had fallen ill after receiving the MMR inoculation — a mixture of weakened but live measles, mumps and rubella virus.
Dr. Wakefield has found evidence of measles virus infection in damaged bowel tissue from some of the children, and later revealed he had seen
170 children with the bowel effects and autism, and that a majority of the parents involved had said their children fell ill after being given the MMR vaccine.
After these findings were publicized, rates of MMR vaccine in the UK promptly fell, Dr. Wakefield was fired from his position and later was charged with professional misconduct by the UK’s General Medical Council (GMC). The paper was also removed from The Lancet amidst all the controversy.
It should be noted that through it all, Dr. Wakefield has defended his findings and said he did not regret his decision to get involved in the MMR controversy. Back in 2001, he said:

"Losing a London hospital teaching job doesn’t do much for my CV but there are bigger issues at stake. What matters now most of all is what happens to these children."

Then, just last month, writer Brian Deer published an article in The Sunday Times London attempting to further tarnish Dr. Wakefield’s reputation by saying he “fixed” data for the study.
What’s Really Going On Here?
It has now come out that Brian Deer’s allegations were totally false and amounted to nothing more than a smear campaign. But it’s not just a simple case of a reporter with mistaken facts, because Brian Deer was the one who originally furnished allegations against Dr. Wakefield in the first place.
In other words, the GMC’s investigation was triggered by a complaint made by Deer, so he was essentially reporting on a disciplinary hearing that he himself instigated.
Ironically, the article came out just days before the U.S. “vaccine court”
ruled that the MMR vaccine does not cause autism, and Deer is now being challenged to explain his potential role in all of this.
On top of that, MMR vaccine manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline has just appointed James Murdoch, the head of News International and boss of The Sunday Times (the paper that published Deer’s story) to its board!
The conflict of interest appears so blatant that some have now dubbed The Sunday Times “The Sunday Glaxo”!
A Reminder to Always Read Between the Lines
Whenever you hear or read something in the news, it is so important to examine the source and look for any hidden agendas. This is especially true when it pertains to your health or the health of your children.
It appears the truth may just come out and Dr. Wakefield may get the vindication he’s deserved all along.

Psychiatric Drug Use of German Shooter Confirmed: Kretschmer Withdrawing from Depression Treatment

March 12, 2009 by: Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) Yesterday we reported on the recent school shooting in Germany, emphasizing the link between psychiatric medications and acts of extreme violence (http://www.naturalnews.com/025826.html).

From the facts that were known yesterday, it was already apparent that the shooter, Tim Kretschmer, was either on psychiatric medications or withdrawing from them. His behavior and choice of targets (including a worker at a psychiatric medical school) pointed strongly towards his use of antidepressant drugs, which are known to cause violent thoughts and behavior.

Behind the scenes, I already knew from an industry source that Kretschmer had undergone psychiatric "treatment," but I could not name that source and thus chose not to publish that fact until it could be further corroborated.

But today, the Associated Press confirms it. In a story widely published across the ‘net (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090312…), police investigator Siegfried Mahler states on the record that the shooter (Kretschmer) "underwent several treatment sessions for depression at a psychiatric clinic" and was "…prescribed a session of outpatient therapy, which he never began."

Thus, the shooter was on psychiatric medications and then quit using them. This created a classic antidepressant withdrawal crisis which is exactly what leads to extreme acts of violence against self or others. As we reported in our previous story, virtually every school shooting that has taken place in the last two decades was carried out by those who either take psychiatric medications or are attempting to quit them.

Why can’t the media connect the dots?

The mainstream media, as usual, remains mystified about why so many teens would pick up deadly weapons and kill their classmates. They seem to willingly ignore the truth about the rather obvious links between antidepressant drug use and acts of extreme violence. It’s almost as if there is a willing conspiracy by the media to apologize for the pharmaceutical industry and avoid mentioning anything that might implicate Big Pharma’s drugs in these school shootings.

When will the ignorant people in our world finally realize the obvious? That when you artificially alter a teenager’sbrain chemistry, you also change his behavior. And interjecting synthetic chemicals into a human brain instead of relying on nutrition and natural medicine that’s fundamentally compatible with human biology, you’re going to get some rather nasty results.

The deaths of the people killed in these school shootings rests solely on the shoulders of psychiatry, an industry of death.

Blaming the guns, but not the chemical child abusers?

Germany, much like America, is reacting to this great tragedy in precisely the wrong way, banning guns instead of banning the chemical child abuse ("psychiatric treatment") by psychiatrists who bear the real responsibility for these acts of violence in the first place.

Shootings in Germany, Alabama Underscore Violent Side Effects of Psychiatric Medications

March 11, 2009 by: Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) A 17-year-old former student opened fire near Stuttgart, Germany, killing at least 16 people. The teenager was a former student at a Winnenden school, where he initiated the shooting spree. Three teachers and at least 10 students were killed by his actions.

The media is reporting that Tim Kretschmer, "walked calmly into three classrooms and opened fire, without saying a word." Following the shooting at his school, Tim ran to a psychiatric clinic school and killed an employee there. (Did he have a link to the psychiatric staff members there?)

A day earlier, a man in his mid-30’s opened fire in Alabama, killing ten people before he was shot and killed by law enforcement.

It’s the medication, not the firearms

In seeing the news reports on these events, the ignorant masses quite predictably leaped to the conclusion that "guns are the problem." Apparently in their minds, these shootings were carried out solely by guns and have nothing whatsoever to do with the people pulling the triggers. But the truth is far more insidious: It is the psychiatric medications that are causing violent shooting sprees in America, Germany and elsewhere.
These dangerous psychiatric medications drastically imbalance brain chemistry, causing teens (and adults) to feel distanced from reality, as if they are walking through a video game. In fact, this was exactly how the Columbine school shooters described their experience of carrying out the infamous shootings in Colorado.

The report that Germany’s shooter, Tim Kretschmer, "walked calmly into three classrooms and opened fire, without saying a word" is a strong indication that he was almost certainly suffering the brain-altering side effects of psychiatric medication.

The pharmaceutical companies, of course, incessantly attempt to deny the reality that their drugs cause school shootings. In fact, their psychiatric drugs actually cause the very same things they often claim to treat! Antidepressants, for example, can cause depression, suicidal thoughts and violent behavior. They also directly promote weight gain, obesity and diabetes, and those health conditions can then lead to more depression, requiring more "treatment" with medication.

It’s all a gigantic scam. These drug companies are just selling patented chemicals for profit while destroying the lives of human beings in the process. In my view, Big Pharma is responsible for the deaths of all those killed by drug-induced shooting sprees. Read the jaw-dropping collection of quotes (below) from authors on this issue to learn even more.

Not surprisingly, the mainstream media remains virtually silent on this issue, not even mentioning any link between psychiatric drugs and school shootings. The media, you see, is largely funded by drug company advertisements……

Attack on Colloidal Silver on the way

The EPA in America has already started – now it’s the turn of the EU – Big Pharma at work…

EUROPE: Scientists warn of nanotechnology threat

Keith Nuthall  Date: 01 March 2009

European scientists are starting to identify tangible health concerns associated with the use of nanoparticles in consumer products. Academic health experts within the European Union’s scientific committee on emerging and newly identified health risks have raised some serious problems in a new detailed paper.
It represents a hardening of concerns: while the committee has previously highlighted the lack of knowledge about how nanoparticles could migrate from clothing and their dyes into consumers’ bodies, it is now raising tangible fears.
The committee’s chair is Professor Jim Bridges, of Britain’s University of Surrey, and its vice-chair is Dr Wim De Jong, toxicological pathologist in the Laboratory of Pathology and Immunobiology at the Netherlands National Institute of Public Health and the Environment.
In particular, the committee has focused on a common type of nanoparticle called nanotubes, noting that when they have "similar characteristics as some types of hazardous asbestos…similar inflammatory reactions can be induced by the nanotubes as asbestos."
This threat is serious because a wide range of industries – from food packagers to pharmaceutical companies, textile manufacturers and paint makers – have been examining the potential benefits of using tiny nanoparticles to improve the quality and physical characteristics of their products.
Research in this area has been booming and the commercial spin-offs could be very profitable. However the fly in the ointment is health. As with genetically modified plants there are potential health concerns and a very real risk that consumer fears could stymie the development of products using nanoparticles.
For the committee, however, it is the science that counts. It notes that nanotubes, a common form of nanoparticle, could be manufactured into "long thin fibrous forms (length >20 micrometre), rigidity, and non-degradability", in which case they really would resemble asbestos fibres.
If these were then inhaled – say in a factory manufacturing or processing nanoparticles – then a risk of mesothelioma (the cancer usually caused by asbestos) cannot be excluded, the committee paper noted. It also raised concern about nanosilver which has been developed for use as a biocide in products such as self-cleaning socks.
Here the report highlighted a toxicity study where an "accumulation of silver was observed in all organs examined, that is, in the blood, brain, kidneys, liver, lungs, stomach and testes.

Government Again Concedes Vaccines Cause Autism

Vaccine Court: Autism Debate Continues 

25 Feb 2009

Mysterious Vaccine Court created in 1986 by the pharmaceutical industry, with the support of Congress, rules in favor of Bailey Banks against HHS.

Los Angeles – February 24, 2009 – Generation Rescue, Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey’s Los Angeles-based non-profit autism organization, today announced that the United States Government has once again conceded that vaccines cause autism. The announcement comes on the heels of the recently unsealed court case of Bailey Banks vs. HHS. The ruling states, “The Court found that Bailey would not have suffered this delay but for the administration of the MMR vaccine…a proximate sequence of cause and effect leading inexorably from vaccination to PDD [Autism].”

In a curious and hypocritical method of operation, the mysterious Vaccine Court not only protects vaccine makers from liability but supports a policy that has tripled the number of vaccines given to U.S. children – all after being made aware of the fact that these vaccines do, in fact, cause autism and repeatedly ruling in favor of families with children hurt by their vaccines.

“It was heartbreaking to hear about Bailey’s story, but through this ruling we are gaining the proof we need to open the eyes of the world to the fact that vaccines do, in fact, cause autism,” said Jenny McCarthy, Hollywood actress, autism activist, best-selling author and Generation Rescue board member. “Bailey Banks’ regression into autism after vaccination is the same story I went through with my own son and the same story I have heard from thousands of mothers and fathers around the country. Our hope is that this ruling will influence decision and policy-makers to help the hundreds of thousands of children and families affected by this terrible condition.”

Banks vs. HHS is the second known case where the Vaccine Court could not deny the overwhelming evidence showing vaccines caused a child’s autism. The first was the case of Hannah Poling in March of 2008, where the court found in her favor and awarded her family compensation.

Jim Carrey, Hollywood legend and Generation Rescue board member, reacted to the news, “It seems the U.S. government is sending mixed messages by telling the world that vaccines don’t cause autism, while, at the same time, they are quietly managing a separate ‘vaccine court’ that is ruling in favor of affected families and finding that vaccines, in fact, were the cause. For most of the autism community the question is no longer whether vaccines caused of their child’s autism. The question is why is their government only promoting the rulings that are in favor of the vaccine companies.”

Why is a secret court, which no one knows about or understands, quietly paying these families for vaccine injuries and autism? Deirdre Imus, Generation Rescue board member and founder of the Deirdre Imus Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology says, “Over the past 20 years, the vaccine court has dispensed close to $2 billion in compensation to families whose children were injured or killed by a vaccine. I am not against vaccines and my own child has been vaccinated. But, I share the growing concerns of many parents questioning the number of vaccines given to children today, some of the toxic ingredients in vaccines, and whether we know enough about the combination risks associated with the multiple vaccines given to children during critical developmental windows.”

To help spread the word of the Banks ruling, Generation Rescue also bought a full-page ad that will run in the USA Today on 02/25/2009, which has a daily circulation of 2,272,815.

Generation Rescue seeks to answer these questions and many more on a daily basis as they fight for the truth and to recover children with autism around the world. To learn more please visit http://www.generationrescue.org, write to media@generationrescue.com
