Green tea extract can make tumours disappear in weeks

August 23, 2012

A Compound found in green tea has been shown to shrink cancer tumours, causing almost half to disappear within one month, according to Scottish scientists. Researchers at the universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow said a technique they used to deliver the extract in concentrated doses to the tumours, under laboratory conditions, had caused 40 per cent of them to vanish. The experiments, on two different types of skin cancer, also resulted in 30 per cent and 20 per cent of them reducing in size.

The Latest Lie From The Cancer Industry: 'Don't Worry About Chemotherapy During Pregnancy, It's Perfectly Safe'

August 26, 2012

According to researchers echoing the sentiments of conventional medical wisdom, there is no need to worry about chemotherapy drugs endangering your unborn child if you develop cancer while pregnant, it's perfectly safe. The sales people at Cancer Inc partnering with Big Pharma, Big Medicine and everybody else who generates a profit from the cancer industry, are at it again with their latest sales pitch, this time for pregnant women.
Read article at sott.net

Comment: To enforce its “Business with Cancer”, the Drug Cartel has to ensure that nobody, not even a pregnant woman, is able to escape its dictatorial grasp. Notably, therefore, the extreme toxicity of chemotherapy is reflected in the ‘safety precautions’ for cancer patients published by the so-called ‘American Cancer Society’. Unbeknown to many people, the chemicals used in chemotherapy are toxic and dangerous to others even after they are excreted through the skin, urine, stool, tears, semen or vaginal fluids. The people at particular risk include family members, caregivers and literally anyone touching a chemotherapy patient. Even health professionals are being reminded about the health risks they are exposed to while handling chemotherapy drugs. These risks include damage to their DNA, birth defects, the development of new cancers and organ damage. Thus, health professionals have to wear special gloves, goggles, and gowns when preparing and giving chemotherapy. In view of all this, for the Cartel and its stakeholders to pretend that chemotherapy is somehow “safe” during pregnancy, and that there are no long-term risks to the unborn child, is clearly absurd.

What Conflicts? Cochrane Reviews & Disclosure Info

August 23, 2012

File this under 'basic irony'. The Cochrane Collaboration is generally regarded as a highly reliable and reputable source for evaluating medical evidence. But what happens when researchers hold a mirror up to Cochrane? A new study finds an interesting wrinkle: most Cochrane reviews of drug trials published in 2010 did not provide information on the sources of funding for trials or financial ties and employment held by authors of the trials.
Read article at pharmalot.com

Comment: As we ourselves revealed back in 2008, the Cochrane Collaboration and its study authors have a long history of conflicts of interest and connections to organizations having a strong institutional bias towards orthodox (i.e. pharmaceutical) medicine. To discover what the world’s media didn’t tell you about the notorious 2008 Cochrane “vitamin review”, including its potential historical parallel with crimes committed by the managers of the notorious I.G. Farben Cartel, click here.

GM bugs could spread in fruit and veg under EU proposals

August 24, 2012

The European Food Safety Agency 's new draft rules for approving genetically modified insects, fish, farm animals and pets should give farmers, food producers, retailers and consumers pause for thought.

Why GE labeling is Monsanto's worst nightmare

August 16, 2012

Recent media coverage of Prop 37, the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act, which would permit companies to label foods made with genetically engineered (GE) crops, highlights the gulf between citizens demanding the right to know what's in our food and corporations desperate to keep the public in the dark. According to the California secretary of state, Monsanto and the rest of the pesticide industry's "Big 6" have contributed $13.5 million so far to defeat this initiative, and have put stopping it at the top of their agenda. Add the money from "Big Food" companies and the opposition funding grows to almost $25 million, with an even bigger "gusher" of corporate cash on its way.

Actual Water Pollution Often Vastly Higher Than Calculated, European Research On Pesticide Approvals Shows

August 8, 2012

The current process of the EU for the approval of pesticides, in particular against insect infestation, is based upon inadequate evaluation models. This is the result of a study conducted by the University of Koblenz-Landau. The study indicates that the concentrations of insecticides actually found in water resources are frequently higher than the theoretically calculated values forming the basis of the approval process. The adequate protection of surface waters requires that the procedure be completely re-examined and revised.

Merkel Pushes for Convention to Draft New EU Treaty

August 27, 2012

Chancellor Angela Merkel's plans for a new treaty governing the European Union are becoming more concrete. SPIEGEL has learned that the German leader wants the EU to begin working on a draft this year, with the aim of providing Brussels with greater power to monitor budgets. But many countries are deeply opposed to the idea.
Read article on the Spiegel Online website (Germany)

Comment: After a century long rule over this planet the corporate interests behind the Oil and Drug Cartel see their multi-trillion dollar global markets being threatened by the rapid advancement of new technologies, namely renewable energy and science-based natural health. In this situation, with its dictatorial Brussels EU construct increasingly in danger of collapse, the political stakeholders of the Cartel are engaged in a desperate effort to delay its demise. The plans for this treaty form a key part of these endeavors and have the goal of further subjugating the people of Europe under the Cartel's dictatorial rule.
