Painkillers 'are the cause' of millions of headaches

September 19, 2012

Up to a million people in the UK have "completely preventable" severe headaches caused by taking too many painkillers, doctors have said. They said some were trapped in a "vicious cycle" of taking pain relief, which then caused even more headaches.
Read article on the BBC News website (UK)

Comment: One of the particular features of the pharmaceutical ‘Business with Disease’ is that maintaining and expanding diseases is a precondition for its growth. A key strategy to accomplish this goal is the development of drugs that merely mask symptoms while avoiding the curing or elimination of diseases. Painkillers for headaches are a classic example of this.

Drug giants give up on Alzheimer's cure
Research too difficult and costly, say pharmaceutical companies

September 19, 2012

The world's leading pharmaceutical companies are downgrading the search for new treatments for Alzheimer's disease after the failure of a series of high-profile drugs trials. The human and financial costs of the disease are growing rapidly as the population ages, but the prospects of treatments to halt it, or slow its progress, are receding as at least five trials in the past five years have delivered disappointing results.
Read article in The Independent (UK)

Comment: The placing of profit before health is one of the main principles governing the pharmaceutical “business with disease.” In this respect, given that September is designated as “World Alzheimer’s Month”, it is notable that the Alzheimer's Association in the United States – a key promoter of the “World Alzheimer’s Month” campaign – has a particularly large number of major multinational pharmaceutical partners and sponsors. As such, it would appear that some of these companies may essentially be advocating the raising of money for drug research into a disease – Alzheimer’s – that they have already given up on. Significantly therefore, natural non-patentable approaches to treating Alzheimer’s disease already exist. To learn about them, click here.

French PM maintains ban on GM crops

September 18, 2012

France will uphold a ban on genetically modified crops as President Francois Hollande pushes his plan to put the environment back at the top of the international agenda.

Dow Brings Back An Agent Orange Ingredient for New GM Plants

September 12, 2012

Whether you are aware of it or not, your food, air and water are the battle ground upon which a titanic struggle between the multinational biotech corporations Monsanto and Dow AgroScience is now playing out. As a result, your health and environment (and that of all future generations) are at profound risk of irreparable harm. Dow AgroSciences (a subsidiary of Dow Chemicals) recently announced their development of genetically-engineered corn, soybean, and cotton plants metabolically resistant to the herbicide 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), a major ingredient in Agent Orange. What this means for our future is that, if approved for use, vast regions of our country will soon be sprayed with a chemical that has been linked to over 400,000 birth defects in Vietnam.

Public Library Censors Nutritional Research
U.S. National Library of Medicine is Biased and Taxpayers Pay for It

September 18, 2012

Most medical journals are easy to access on the internet through a huge electronic database known as Medline or PubMed. This service is brought to you by the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. In other words, by your tax dollars. Generally it is money well spent, until you go searching for high-dose vitamin therapy research papers. Then you will find that you can't find a lot of them. The reason is selective indexing. "Selective indexing" is a nice name for censorship.

Food prices jump will hit poor, World Bank warns

August 30, 2012

Global food prices have leapt by 10% in the month of July, raising fears of soaring prices for the planet's poorest, the World Bank has warned.

Europe must become 'federation of states', Barroso says

September 12, 2012

The president of the European Commission called for the EU to be turned into a "federation of nation states" in a sweeping demand for countries to surrender more sovereignty and move towards full integration.
Read article in the Daily Telegraph (UK)

Comment: It is no coincidence that, at the exact same time Barroso is calling for the subjection of European nation states into a federal Europe, the collapse of the corrupt and dictatorial “Brussels EU” structure is already underway. With a major newspaper in the Netherlands having recently told the truth to its readers about the construct’s origins, awareness is growing that its dismantling is a precondition for global natural health freedom.
