Increased vitamin D intake could cut risk of hospital-acquired infections
A new study has indicated that raising vitamin D concentrations among hospital patients has the potential to greatly reduce the risk of hospital-acquired infections. Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are a leading cause of death in the US health care arena, with an overall estimated annual incidence of 1.7 million cases and 100,000 deaths. Patients are often vitamin D deficient since many diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and respiratory infections are linked to low vitamin D concentrations. Pneumonia is the most likely HAI, followed by bacteremias, urinary tract infections, surgical site infections, sepsis, and others.

Vast F.D.A. Effort Tracked E-Mails of Its Scientists
WASHINGTON – A wide-ranging surveillance operation by the Food and Drug Administration against a group of its own scientists used an enemies list of sorts as it secretly captured thousands of e-mails that the disgruntled scientists sent privately to members of Congress, lawyers, labor officials, journalists and even President Obama, previously undisclosed records show. What began as a narrow investigation into the possible leaking of confidential agency information by five scientists quickly grew in mid-2010 into a much broader campaign to counter outside critics of the agency’s medical review process, according to the cache of more than 80,000 pages of computer documents generated by the surveillance effort.

Anger after Bill Gates gives £6m to British lab to develop GM crops
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has given British scientists a multi-million pound grant to develop GM crops in what could be the most significant PR endorsement for the controversial technology.
Read article in The Independent (UK)
Comment: Using an approach becoming known as Philanthrocapitalism that essentially copies a model designed by John D. Rockefeller a century earlier, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s investments have included stockholdings in multi-billion dollar drug companies and other corporations that have been criticized for worsening poverty, heavy pollution and other unethical practices. Notably, therefore, a 2007 investigation by the Los Angeles Times found that it reaps vast financial gains every year from such investments.

Obesity plus low vitamin D may add up to a greater risk of diabetes

Most Greeks want new government to renegotiate bailout – poll
ATHENS (Reuters) - Most Greeks want the government to renegotiate the terms of its EU/IMF bailout regardless of the impact this stance would have on the country's future in the eurozone, a poll showed on Saturday. Greece is dependent on the funds from Brussels and the IMF for day to day state spending but in exchange for a second, 130 billion-euro bailout it is implementing spending cuts that have pushed it into its worst recession since World War Two and put one in five out of work. An MRB poll for Sunday's Realnews showed that 73.9 percent of Greeks want the new coalition government to stick to its promises and demand a renegotiation of the bailout, even if this puts the country's euro membership at risk.

Comment:As Dr. Rath described in his Call to the People of Germany and Europe in March 2012, the euro currency fulfils only one function; namely, as a chain enslaving millions of Europeans to economic dictatorship. As such, by leaving the euro and re-introducing their national currency, the people of Greece could set themselves back on the road to independence, financial recovery and social peace. Whilst it would not be possible to immediately repair the immense financial and social damage that has been caused by the chemical and pharmaceutical cartel and its Brussels politburo, with their national currency, at least, the people of Greece would once again have a chance to preserve their independence and dignity by their own endeavours.

South African elected first female AU Commission head
ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - South African Home Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma was elected on Sunday to become the first female head of the African Union (AU) Commission, ending a bruising leadership battle that had threatened to divide and weaken the organization.

Comment: As we describe in our book, “The Nazi Roots of the ‘Brussels EU’”, from its politburo in Brussels the Oil and Drug Cartel is attempting to take control over the whole world. Notably therefore, the architects of the African Union have not hidden the fact that it was modeled on the European Union – with almost identical institutional structures, including a so-called “AU Commission.” The permanent seat of this commission is Addis Ababa in Ethiopia – apparently, the intended “Brussels of Africa.”
