FDA allows another drug company to continue indiscriminately killing people...

Opinion: Once again we see the FDA’s almost unbelievable bias being played out on behalf of the major pharmaceutical companies.

Even when people are dropping like flies from a particular FDA-approved prescription drug – as in the case below where the diabetes drug Avandis is apparently causing some 500 heart attacks and 300 cases of heart failure every month – the FDA does nothing.

Yet the FDA continually screams from the high heavens that they need more authority to regulate nutritional supplements. They want to control supplement dosage levels. They want to control what information supplement manufacturers can and can’t tell the public. They want to control which supplement ingredients can be sold and which can’t. All of this, even though nutritional supplements have not caused a single death in the latest reporting period, while properly prescribed, FDA-approved prescription drugs kill an average of 106,000 people a year!

To the FDA, I say: No, thank you! Leave my supplements alone! You’re ‘regulation’ is unwanted and unneeded. Clean up your own house first, before you come into the nutritional supplement community to tell us our porch is dirty.

I’ve got nothing against prescription drugs. If you want to use them, go ahead. But it’s my choice to take nutritional supplements instead of drugs, whenever possible. And if there are consequences to my use of nutritional supplements instead of drugs, well, that’s my problem. I’ll deal with it.

Meanwhile FDA: Clean up your act before you start trying to cast stones at nutritional supplements!

GlaxoSmithKline deliberately hid evidence of Avandia harm, says Senate report

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

Editor of

(NaturalNews) GlaxoSmithKline, maker of the diabetes drug Avandia, knew the drug was linked to tens of thousands of heart attacks but went out of its way to hide this information from the public, says a 334-page report just released by the Senate Finance Committee. (

This report also accuses the FDA of betraying the public trust, explaining that FDA bureaucrats intentionally dismissed safety concerns found by the agency's own scientists.

The report says that Big Pharma's drugs "put public safety at risk because the FDA has been too cozy with drug makers and has been regularly outmaneuvered by companies that have a financial interest in downplaying or under-exploring potential safety risks." Sales of Avandia were $3.2 billion (yes, billion) in 2006.

According to a statistical analysis in the report, if all the diabetics currently taking Avandia were put on a "safer" drug, it would avert 500 heart attacks and 300 cases of heart failure every month in the United States alone. Presently, hundreds of thousands of Americans are still taking this drug, and hundreds will continue to die each month as a result, according to the report estimates.

This report, championed by U.S. Senators Grassley and Baucus, is the result of investigators pouring through more than 250,000 pages of documentation gathered from GlaxoSmithKline and the FDA. The document reveals some rather startling facts about the dangers of Avandia, including evidence from the FDA's own scientists who concluded that Avandia was associated with 83,000 heart attacks.

GlaxoSmithKline intimidates scientists

This investigative report also reveals that GSK engaged in the intimidation of physicians, saying: "GSK executives attempted to intimidate independent physicians, focused on strategies to minimize or misrepresent findings that Avandia may increase cardiovascular risk and sought ways to downplay findings that a competing drug might reduce cardiovascular risk."

"Patients trust drug companies with their health and their lives, and GlaxoSmithKline abused that trust." said Sen. Baucus. (Gee, really? Is anyone really surprised that GSK put its own financial interests ahead of a few thousand human lives?)

A separate letter sent to FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg by Senators Baucus and Grassley added, "the totality of evidence suggests that GSK was aware of the possible cardiac risks associated with Avandia years before such evidence became public."

The FDA's own research also showed Avandia to be associated with a significant increase in heart attack risk, yet the FDA did nothing to protect the public. The agency's own scientists wrote in 2008, "There is strong evidence that rosiglitazone [Avandia] confers an increased risk of [heart attacks] and heart failure compared to pioglitazone [a rival drug on market]." This evidence went completely ignored at the FDA.

The FDA's famous Dr David Graham -- the key whistleblower on the Vioxx scandal -- concluded from his own research, "Rosiglitazone should be removed from the market."

Even the American Medical Association -- a long-time defender of Big Pharma's drugs -- admitted Avandia was dangerous. Its journal, JAMA, wrote in 2007: "Among patients with impaired glucose tolerance or type 2 diabetes, rosiglitazone use for at least 12 months is associated with a significantly increased risk of myocardial infarction and heart failure, without a significantly increased risk of cardiovascular mortality."

The New England Journal of Medicine also warned about the safety of the drug in an article published in 2007.

Despite these multiple warnings, an FDA panel voted 22 - 1 in favor of keeping Avandia on the market. This is no surprise, of course, to those who know how the FDA really operates (and where its priorities really lie).

What is Superbrain Yoga...and Can It Really Make You Smarter in Just 3 Minutes a Day?

What is Superbrain Yoga?

Superbrain yoga is a quick and easy exercise improves poor memory, lack of concentration, clumsiness and emotional instability. It stimulates intelligence in everyone, and can offer real help for those with learning difficulties, autism and Alzheimer’s disease.

On the CBS news story video clip above, a teacher, doctor, neurobiologist, occupational therapist, and parent discuss how this one easy exercise…

  • Stimulates neural pathways via acupressure points in the earlobes
  • Synchronizes the right and left side of the brain to improve function
  • Sharpens intelligence in seniors, juniors, mums, dads and kids
  • Helps those with autism, Asperger's syndrome, learning difficulties and behavioral problems
  • Is fast and simple to do - takes just 1 to 3 minutes a day
  • Benefits anyone of any age

Exercise Instructions

  • Step One: Stand with your feet about shoulder distance apart, toes pointing forward.
  • Step Two: Grab your right ear lobe between your left thumb and finger (we’re not joking).
  • Step Three: Grab your left ear lobe between your right thumb and finger. You should now be holding both earlobes with your arms crossed over your chest (and we’re still not joking).
  • Step Four: Commence doing body squats by bending your knees and lowering your body toward the floor as you breathe in. Go as low as you can comfortably manage and then raise yourself back to a standing position as you breathe out.
  • Step Five: Repeat the squats for 1 to 3 minutes while continuing to hold your earlobes.

So, with an exercise this easy why not commit to giving your brain a regular workout? Just hold those ears and bend the knees a few minutes each day for clearer thinking and a sharper memory.

Europe to Investigate the UN Over Swine Flu “Pandemic” Scam

Yes, the Swine Flu “pandemic” was another royal scam that put taxpayers on the hook for billions of dollars worth of worthless flu vaccines and allowed Barack Obama to evoke emergency powers (not since revoked, by the way) giving him control over hospitals, emergency rooms, medical personnel and much more.

It seems the global government organizations like the UN are nothing more than scam peddlers for the big, multi-national corporations – including Big Pharma -- that basically now run the world, leeching off the people through taxpayer monies wherever they can.

This is why I'm so grateful to have knowledge of natural healing techniques. And it's one of the main reasons I write this blog, i.e., to help alert people to the idea that much of what's being told to them about health and healing by the medical authorities is a royal scam, and that there are safe, inexpensive and completely natural means of healing available that really work.

By the way, do you remember back during the big Swine Flu scare how the FDA and big media news organizations teamed up to announce that natural healing methods being touted on the internet as Swine Flu remedies were just "scams," and warned the people not to use natural products?

The FDA even sent out hundreds of "enforcement" letters, threatening supplement manufacturers not to say their products could help people heal from Swine Flu.

Now it's the vaccine manufacturers and their big government lackeys who are being investigated for scamming the public, and looting the public treasury. Ironic, isn't it?

Europe to Investigate the UN Over “Pandemic” Scam

By Jim O'Neill Saturday, January 2, 2010

UN report says pandemic may result in anarchy—‘could kill millions’—unless western world pays for antiviral drugs and vaccines!” —From “The Guardian” September 20, 2009

President Barack Obama has declared the swine flu outbreak a national emergency, giving his health chief the power to let hospitals move emergency rooms offsite to speed treatment and protect non-infected patients.” — Associated Press—October 25, 2009

In addition to the “global warming” rip-off, you can add another huge international racketeering operation—the H1N1 “pandemic” of 2009.

Both of these ploys were designed to fleece the western nations of billions, possibly trillions, of dollars. In the case of the H1N1 scam, the western governments have already coughed up billions of dollars for vaccines to prevent a bogus “pandemic.” That means that we, the taxpayers, have been ripped-off yet again.

If class action lawsuits aren’t on the way, then they darn well should be.

The European nations have apparently not been paid off to the extent of the U.S. Congress, and have decided to look into things.

According to a report filed by F. William Engdahl, the Council of Europe Parliament has unanimously proposed to start an investigation this month into “the influence of the pharmaceutical companies on the global swine flu campaign.”

The purpose of the inquiry is to investigate collusion between the “Golden Triangle” of the UN’s WHO (World Health Organization), certain pharmaceutical companies, and academic scientists.

That scenario should sound familiar, as it’s similar to “global warming’s” collusion between the UN’s IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), “green energy” corporations, and academic scientists.

Both scams were intended to “redistribute the wealth” globally, while making the Global Elite, very, very rich. They get to wipe out the middle-class, destroy capitalism, install a UN-run global regime, and get exceedingly wealthy, all at the same time. It’s a win/win situation all around, for Progressives at least.

The resolution just passed by the Council of Europe Parliament includes the charge that, “In order to promote their patented drugs and vaccines…pharmaceutical companies influenced scientists and official agencies…to alarm governments worldwide and make them squander tight health resources for inefficient vaccine strategies and needlessly expose millions of healthy people to the risk of an unknown amount of side-effects of insufficiently tested vaccines.”

The motion was introduced by Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, Chairman of the European Parliament Health Committee. He stated that millions of healthy people were unnecessarily “exposed to the risk of poorly tested vaccines,” for no other reason than the purported threat of a flu strain that is “vastly less harmful” then previous flu strains.

Dr. Wodarg’s talking about the Swine Flu, or H1N1, or “novel H1N1,” or “2009 H1N1,” or whatever they’re trying to pass it off as these days. You remember—the national emergency?

You ought to remember—after all, you helped to pay for the billions spent on vaccines. Big Pharma thanks you, and so do their stockholders. Speaking of which, do you think some of those stockholders just might be Global Elitists? Just asking.

Dr. Wodarg suggested that, “The Council of Europe and its member-states should ask for immediate investigations and consequences, on their national levels, as well as on the international level.” Consequences—hmmm, good suggestion.

Why isn’t the U.S. doing the same? Too many bribes, too many “donations” made to too many politicians, too many deals made with Big Pharma to get Obama-Care passed? That would be my guess.

Our renowned “people’s watchdog,” the Lame Stream Media, remains ever-vigilantly silent on the subject. Although I must admit that CBS did, almost, nearly look into malfeasance on the part of the CDC (Center for Disease Control) regarding the Swine Flu scam.

I guess, once again, it’s up to “we the people” to straighten things out. Anybody know some good class action lawsuit lawyers?

Laus Deo.

World's first monkey study on vaccines shows stark differences between vaccinated monkeys and unvaccinated monkeys...

Are excessive childhood vaccinations causing autism and other neurological diseases?

It's hard to believe that full-fledged independent clinical studies on that question have simply never been carried out.

Now, a study has been carried out in which young monkeys have been given the Hepatitus B vaccine at age two weeks, mimicking the U.S. vaccine schedule.

The study found that the vaccinated monkeys suffered the loss of many reflexes that are critical for survival.

Interestingly, while the study is being sent to various peer-reviewed medical journals for publication, a concerted and virulent attack against the lead study author, Dr. Andrew Wakefield, is being carried out in the news media.

Isn't it wonderful when overlapping corporate interests don't want the general public to know something?

-- Spencer

Quote from article at above link:

Dr. Wakefield is the co-author, along with eight other distinguished scientists from institutions like the University of Pittsburgh, the University of Kentucky, and the University of Washington, of a set of studies that explore the topic of vaccinated versus unvaccinated neurological outcomes using monkeys.

The first phase of this monkey study was published three months ago in the prestigious medical journal Neurotoxicology, and focused on the first two weeks of life when the vaccinated monkeys received a single vaccine for Hepatitis B, mimicking the U.S. vaccine schedule. The results, which you can read for yourself here, were disturbing. Vaccinated monkeys, unlike their unvaccinated peers, suffered the loss of many reflexes that are critical for survival.

Dr. Wakefield and his scientific colleagues are on the brink of publishing their entire study, which followed the monkeys through the U.S. childhood vaccine schedule over a multi-year period. It is our understanding that the difference in outcome for the vaccinated monkeys versus the unvaccinated controls is both stark and devastating.

There is no question that the publication of the monkey study will lend substantial credibility to the theory that over-vaccination of young children is leading to neurological damage, including autism.

The fallout from the study for vaccine makers and public health officials could be severe. Having denied the possibility of the vaccine-autism connection for so long while profiting immensely from a recent boom in vaccine sales around the world, it's no surprise that they would seek to repress this important work.
