Jada Johnson, 11, refuses chemotherapy, may be forced back into treatment

Comment: In order to ensure the survival of its multi-billion dollar “Business with Cancer” the Drug Cartel has to ensure that nobody – not even an 11-year-old child – is able to escape its dictatorial grasp. In this situation we are reminded once again of the experiences of the parents of Dominik Feld. Speaking after Dominik’s death at the hands of pharmaceutical medicine in 2004, his mother movingly described how, to the drug industry’s stakeholders in the medical profession, her son’s interests were secondary to trying to show the world that Dr. Rath was wrong and that the results of his cancer research are false. The reality is however that chemotherapy is a highly toxic and dangerous treatment that contributes to a quarter of all deaths from cancer. In fact, unbeknown to the vast majority of patients, the overall contribution of chemotherapy to 5-year cancer survival in adults has been estimated to be a mere 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA.

To learn why, after the banking and oil industries, the pharmaceutical “business with disease” is the next global industry fighting for the survival of its credibility, visit the Pharma Facts website.

The Rockefeller family, which made one of the world’s largest fortunes through its vast oil business, is to slash its investments in fossil fuels to less than 1pc and reinvest in clean energy. The Rockefeller Brothers Fund, which oversees $860m of investments, will divest its coal and tar sands assets “as quickly as possible”, it said in a statement.
Read article in the Daily Telegraph (UK)

Comment: Given the history of the Rockefeller family and its well-documented role in the development of the corporate approach to medicine, we expect that many people will be hesitant to break out the champagne over this announcement. Significantly therefore, despite the Rockefeller family’s widely-published statements about the “moral imperative to preserve a healthy planet,” we note that no such public commitment has been made regarding their investments in the trillion-dollar-a-year pharmaceutical ‘business with disease’.

The flattening forces of globalization continue to advance

September 16, 2014

My first trip to Europe was when I was a young boy and Kennedy was still president. Everything seemed so different there, from the public restrooms at the Brussels airport where the men’s and women’s entrances led into the exact same room to the frothy, thick, hot milk in an almost-too-big tasse that I happily slurped in a small Parisian café, leaving a warm, white smear on my face and in my throat. There were no McDonalds, Starbucks, or ubiquitous American sitcoms like Friends. Life, European life, was an alien bustle and blur that never quite lost its seductive grip on my soul.
