Girl Guide Cookies Unhealthy

Girl Guide and Girl Scout Cookies loaded with GMOs!

    Girl Scout and Girl Guide cookies are made with GMO ingredients despite the many studies showing rats fed GMO ingredients develop horrific tumors and health issues, including obesity and gastrointestinal issues. Today’s Girl Scout and Girl Guide cookies are filled with health-destroying ingredients like genetically-modified (GM) beet sugar, high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), and transgenic soy derivatives.

One courageous US Girl Scout decided enough is enough.  Her petition, seen at www.change.org, demands that the Girl Scouts stop this practice – already the petition has gone viral.  As parents world-wide make efforts to avoid feeding their children GMOs and toxic foods, it is abundantly clear that the Girl Scouts and Girl Guide administrations are falling well behind the level of diligence that should be expected.

It should be easy to switch to non-GMO, non-toxic ingredients in their cookies, right? But not so, because Girl Scouts administrators have decided that the opinions of their bakers, who claim their cookies are safe, trump independent research studies showing massive health issues directly linked to GMO sugar beets and HFCS. 

According to NaturalNews.com, as well as adding your name to the petition at www.change.org  “You can also contact the Girl Scouts directly and ask the organization to reformulate its cookies without GMOs and toxic ingredients like HFCS, hydrogenated oils, and processed soy: http://www.girlscouts.org/contact/email.asp  This goes for Girl Scouts Canada.

 Four additional ways to help the Girl Scouts and Girl Guides of Canada develope a healthier agenda: 

(a)  Avoid buying Girl Guide cookies and Girl Scout cookies altogether, thus helping reduce the exposure the children have to GMOs.  You can explain to the children, in an age-appropriate way, why you are not buying the cookies.

(b)  Support the Girl Scouts and Girl Guides in other ways such as purchasing magazine subscriptions through their Magazine Program 

(c)   Offer a donation directly to the Girl Scouts and Girl Guides without purchasing their cookies:  Scouts Canada: 613-224-5134   Girl Guides: 416-487-5281

(d)  Speak up to stop the unethical use of children to advance Monsanto and Big Biz agendas that have been proven to create catastrophic illnesses!

 Together we can all make Scouting and Guiding activities safe. Girl Scout Cookies and Girl Guide Cookies must be safe and healthy!

What do you plan to do to help keep Girl Scouts and Girl Guides healthy and safe?

256px-Money_555     As far back as 2008, the US Court of Federal Claims quietly admitted that vaccines, particularly those containing mercury-based preservative Thimerosal, caused autism. Vaccine damage is undeniable. On Jan 28, 2013, David Kirby of the Huffington Post broke yet another story of $10 Million dollar payouts in two separate cases of children irreversibly brain-damaged by vaccines(more…)

Iatrogenic illness and disease are most commonly defined as a type of symptom brought about as a consequence of therapy or treatment; a physical and/or mental condition or disorder arising from a medical treatment. Secondary lymphedema occurring after cancer treatment, mental illness as a result of over-medication, iatrogenic hypothroidism and Ritalin-induced psychoses are all examples of iatrogenic illnesses.

Drugs Associated With Iatrogenic Effects
More than a million adults in Britain were hooked on drugs prescribed for them by their GPs, a 2001 BBC documentary revealed. In particular it noted that benzodiazepines (eg. lorazepam), caused millions of adults lives to spin out of control, with withdrawal symptoms as severe as those experienced by heroin addicts. The anxiety attacks reported were worse then the symptoms patients originally sought treatment for. (BBC 2001)

According to T. Robert, 2003, in America, treatment and physician-induced deaths topped the charts as the leading cause of death. OxyContin alone is linked to such an alarming rate of death and addiction that in the USA even the FDA has gotten into the act and forced Purdue Pharma, the manufacturer, to provide more accurate data on deaths and abuse. Some 59 prescription drugs in the United States contain oxycodone and it has fast become a choice drug for addicts who rob pharmacies, forge prescriptions and align with unethical physicians to feed their habit.

According to Robert Whitaker, Zyprexa, an atypical antipsychotic, was linked to serious, in some cases life-threatening side effects requiring hospitalization in 22% of the 2500 adults tested in six-week clinical trials. In fact, during testing, 20 volunteers died, 12 by suicide. A study presented in 2004 at the AACAP is believed to be the first to find the link between Zyprexa and insulin and obesity issues in children and teens. Despite ligation since, doctors still prescribe this deadly drug to thousands.

Prozac and Iatrogenic Illnesses
Within one decade, 39,000 adverse reports about Prozac were sent to Medwatch; a number thought to represent only one percent of the actual number of such events estimated to be 100 times as many (roughly four million people) (Mezzman, 2005). This makes Prozac the most criticized drug in America. Prozac is marketed to the public as a safe drug, and yet millions are complaining about mania, psychotic depression, nervousness, anxiety, agitation, hostility, hallucinations, memory loss, tremors, impotence, convulsions, insomnia, nausea, suicidal urges…all very serious symptoms. (Mezzman, 2005)

In a 2005 interview of Robert Whitaker by Terry Messman, the author of Mad in America states: “….In this county, we have Medwatch, a reporting system in which we report adverse events about psychiatric drugs to the FDA. By the way, the FDA tries to keep these adverse reports from the public…it’s very hard to get these reports….Once we got the other SSRIs on the market, like Zoloft and Paxil, by 1994, four SSRI antidepressants were among the top 20 most complained about drugs on the FDA’s Medwatch list.” As Whitaker points out throughout his interview, the adverse effects, such as suicidal ideation, hallucinations and mania are not minor inconveniences.

Marketing in Madness
This is a must see 177 minute documentary of more facts about the victimization of patients all over North America. It really does pull everything you need to know together in a way that will make you aware of the sure-to-be consequences of starting on drugs to manage the stressors of everyday life.

What Can be Done About Iatrogenic Illness and Death
It would seem that about the only sure way to avoid drug-induced (iatrogenic) illness is to avoid drug therapy as much as possible in favor of safe, natural remedies and therapies such as homeopathy, which is very popular in Europe where even the British Royal Family physician is a homeopath, and hypnotherapy, which has repeatedly been shown highly effective for everything from irritable bowel syndrome pain to anxiety, stress and depressive feelings.

When money is the driving force behind the prescription of such deadly drugs, one must ensure they do not trust blindly. As Ronald Reagan once said, “trust, but verify.” Any effort to verify claims of the safety of any drug prescribed will soon enlighten a patient to the fact that pharmaceuticals cause more harm than good.

The Mayo Clinic among many other major IBS research facilities spearheaded countless studies on IBS over the last 20 years and found that it was not caused by dietary/nutritional/bacterial problems and attention to diet has never provided permanent relief. Indeed, one’s doctor would have checked for this as well as for parasites and pathology before settling on the diagnosis of IBS. In fact, research shows that many sufferers have a perfect balance of digestive enzymes and gut bacteria, leaving stress and cortisol the likely culprits.

Dr. Grant Thompson, one of the world’s leading authorities on IBS concluded in his review of drug management of IBS “the sheer number and variety of drugs sold for IBS treatment are testimony to their collective uselessness (Thompson, 1994). There is occasionally temporary relief of symptoms by diet control.

Permanent response of IBS to hypnotherapy treatment is in 80-95% range (studies: Whorwell et all 1984,1987), Palsson et al 1997,2000). They concluded it is a comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable treatment, without side-effects, often resulting in significant improvement or complete dissolution of other problems usually found with IBS, such as headaches.

According to solid data by IBS expert Michael Mahoney, Hypnotherapy has proven highly effective in alleviating IBS symptoms. In his 15 year scientific research, it is shown that it is safe and inexpensive and conclusively shows Hypnotherapy routinely produces positive results in over 85% of the people who use it.

Adriane Fugh-Berman, MD, Chair of the National Women’s Health Network in Washington DC stated because of it’s efficacy Hypnotherapy should be the treatment of choice for IBS before drugs or the humiliating treatments are tried.

Journal of Gastroenterology: Dr. Peter James Whorwell, Manchester, UK, a world leader in IBS research, reported significant benefits of Hypnotherapy in all gastrointestinal disorders, particularly IBS. Many studies in pain management at Case Western Reserve University, found Hypnotherapy to be a very valuable and reliable tool.

The BMA (British Medical Association Journal) specialist publication “Gut” reported a long term study of more then 200 IBS patients and found 71% of patients had permanent improvements with 8-12 sessions and that this was faster, more cost-effective treatment then the temporary fixes of medicine and surgery. The UK government operates hypnotherapy clinics for IBS sufferers and their results are phenomenal as well.

Hypnotherapy is not counseling (talk-therapy) in the sense people are accustomed to. Hypnotherapy works with the subconscious mind of a person to convince it to normalize body functions. It guides a person into a state of relaxation and lower brain-wave frequency that allows that person’s subconscious to accept direct suggestions about gut function, as well as to help reduce the sufferer’s reaction to stress.

Whether stress is/was the precipitating reason for the development of IBS, stress affects all bodily functions and distorts memory and thought…those are also very well researched facts. People under stress get headaches, irritability, etc. etc., therefore it is not hard to see how stress could impact the way their digestive tract functions. The reason for the stress may be long gone, but the memory of the events may well work subconsciously.

It only stands to reason that if a person is stressed and they hold the stress in, their entire body will be tense. If the entire body is tense long enough, not only their breathing, but other bodily functions are affected…affected long enough, the effect becomes permanent. Just as people subjected to prolonged stress soon become shallow breathers, many people subjected to prolonged stress also develope digestive problems.

The common thread for all sufferers I have worked with is how they have learned to manage stress…many of those who internalized stress ended up with gastro-intestinal issues. There are many forms of stress…physical, mental, emotional. Therefore it is not only the source of the stress, but how the person has learned to manage stress that factors in. There is a great deal of stress associated with having to manage a life with IBS for instance.

My Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) treatment program therefore targets not only the resumption of normal gut behavior, but the sufferer’s reaction to stress. If the stress is emotional and is tied to past unresolved events, then those old memories are neutralized in hypnosis as well, so that they no longer impact the sufferer’s current life.

IBS can start in childhood, as children have even less opportunity to relieve emotional and mental stress. It is not something that starts overnight and it takes years to manifest as full-blown IBS, a syndrome that often gets worse with time, severely interfering with a person’s quality of life and mobility.

In the past it was thought that diet/enzymes, etc. caused IBS, however better information through research is conclusive on that issue now…certain foods can cause a worsening of the symptoms in some people some of the time, but they are not the cause of IBS and attention to this, as many have discovered, does not relieve IBS symptoms.

The program used at GracePlace Wellness focuses on resolving the emotional root-cause of the sufferers anxiety and once that has been completed, attention is directed toward teaching the client new ways to manage stressors in their lives, so that their reactions result in the release of calming hormones into their bodies rather than the damaging stress hormone cortisol.

I see many clients with IBS…always there is ‘stress’ factoring in, whether it is recognized or not. Some may be from past unresolved events and always there is some accumulated from having to deal with this suffering. To heal through Hypnotherapy it is not necessary to believe in hypnosis, hypnotherapy or even agree on the causes….it just works because the subconscious mind is convinced.

Using my emotional freedom program, which targets and resolve the root cause of the high anxiety levels which manifest as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, my success rate has been over 90% .

In the end, it doesn’t matter what the stressor is, the subconscious mind can be convinced to resolve the issue and restore normal gut function and that is what is important. Working with the subconscious mind while a person is in a relaxed hypnotic state is the purview of a competent hypnotherapist specializing in IBS symptom relief….that is why hypnotherapy is fast becoming the treatment of choice for permanent IBS symptom relief world-wide.

It is astounding on many levels how parental indifference can impact a child’s life and society. My practice sees many children who have been handed the latest technology and ‘allowances of money’ only to find themselves trying to manage fear, insecurity and intense loneliness alone. I meet many parents who have no idea what is going on in their child’s life or where they are when not home.

Time after time I interview children in my hypnotherapy practice whose parents have treated them as apprenticing adults – little people expected to have the experience and knowledge of most adults – while the children became increasingly more unable to cope with the onslaught of stressors such as cyber bullies, junk foods entirely lacking nutrition, violence and sex on TV and intense loneliness and despair.

Increasingly children are expected to make their way in life without the guidance they need to remain safe and secure. Many children get to interact with their parents in a meaningful way for barely a few minutes each day, yet quality time with at least one parent for several hours per day is vitally important to a young mind struggling to understand a world he/she has no experience with.

It seems that the more parents rely on technology including TV and communication devices, such as cell phones, to educate and ‘babysit’ their children, the bond between parent and child is strained and the education about life the child receives is seriously deficient in the aspects that would be in the child’s best interest. TV commercials make children lifelong consumers of junk food and unhealthy habits and the TV ‘sex and violence’ programming is surely the biggest culprit in selling early sex, unhealthy lifestyles and aggressive behavior to children as the way to live.

We now have the highest rate of child and teen suicide in history. Children are not at fault for being unable to manage in a world that is becoming increasingly more frightening and dangerous. It is the parents’ responsibility to ensure that a child feels safe and secure, loved and lovable as they make their way through life. It is a parents’ obligation to be there physically and emotionally for a child…it is not enough to give them money and tell them to find something to eat.

We need to get back to letting children be children and to acting like nurturers and caring human beings toward our children to ensure they feel confident in themselves, are learning, feeling safe and secure, loved and lovable, protected and cared about. That requires parental involvement in the child’s life…parental time and physical presence, understanding, caring and love on a daily basis.

I have yet to meet a cell phone or IPod which could replace a real live caring caregiver. I have seen the devastation of a child raised by the TV set…fearful, lacking confidence, helpless, soaked in beliefs that violence is standard fair in our world and that junk food is all there is to eat.

I hear children say they feel invisible, worthless, less than nothing, not even as good as the household pet which gets the extra attention they crave. I see children crying because they are scared, lonely and feel helpless to be able to change their circumstances. They cannot articulate what they need; all they know is that they don’t have ‘it’. It seems that intense loneliness from spending so much time alone is the prevailing condition in children today.

I have yet to hear a child say they felt unhappy because they didn’t receive the latest most popular runners, the latest technology or the clothes that are in fad. But I routinely hear them complain that mom and dad never make time for them, that they aren’t important in their house because mom/dad spends more time with the pet. Many have said they wished they were a dog or cat so mom/dad would pat them too. One child said that if he were a dog, his mom would tell him she loved him too because she always told the dog she loved it, but never him.

I personally think the most loving thing any parent can do for their children is give them their time…real quality time. Not time spent watching TV together, but real time walking outdoors or playing together, for example. Get rid of the TV; limit cell phone and technology use to a half hour per day. Monitor all texting and calls to be certain your child is not trying to manage bullies and inappropriate ‘friend’ behavior. Help them with their homework, insist on sit-down meals….walk, talk, love with them!

Remember that children grow up to be adults with a vivid memory of how you made them feel! If they are not your priority and first love now, don’t expect to be theirs later.

It has been my experience that many PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) sufferers have found permanent relief from having undergone competent hypnotherapy.  After hypnotherapy, most PTSD sufferers seem to feel a calmness and peacefulness that pervades their approach to life.

Many PTSD sufferers feel deep anger, resentment, fear, discouragement, anxiety, depression and various combinations thereof.  But the one symptom that is common is a severe anxiousness.  PTSD is usually diagnosed after a person has experienced a traumatic event; it is suffered by children and adults alike.   In summary, they are truly suffering and many feel a sense of hopelessness and disempowerment as they face relentless periods of severe and uncontrollable anxiety.

I was trained at The Pacific Institute of Advanced Hypnotherapy where a hypnotherapist is taught the techniques that can help relieve such suffering, irrespective of the label affixed by the medical community.  Many of my clients have successfully healed themselves of the deep-rooted emotional causes of the intense and disabling emotions associated with PTSD.  Being piled on top of an accumulation of years of feelings of danger and insecurity, often, the most recent traumatic experience is in effect the ‘straw that broke the camel’s back’.

Unfortunately, it seems that many of the drugs prescribed for PTSD seem to intensify the anxiety and the withdrawals add to feelings of being out of control of one’s life.  Hypnotherapy however, carried out by a well-trained, experienced hypnotherapist is drug-free and entirely dignified and self-healing.  This therapy provides a safe and effective way for the PTSD client to connect with the deep subconscious reason(s) for the life-long fear that was confirmed and intensified by the traumatic incident.

It is vitally important that a PTSD client seek out the most experienced and well-trained clinical hypnotherapist possible.  Some hypnotists, without the requisite training and experience refer to themselves as hypnotherapists and thus, without the intensive regression training required, may be ineffective in dissolving the root-cause issues.  A competent hypnotherapist can help a client reach the subconscious mind, help the client become aware of the underlying issues, facilitate reframing of the events that are at the root of the issues and provide direct and indirect subconscious suggestions for calmness, safety, protection, love and worthiness that benefit the client permanently.

While everyone should be consulting their doctor about all health issues they struggle with, it may also be beneficial to ask your doctor about hypnotherapy as a first option for relief of PTSD symptoms.  Many people have found that hypnotherapy should be a first option rather than the last, given that it’s benefits have been confirmed by research and it has no known negative side effects.

· · · · · · · · · · · · · ·

There are many ways to assist your hypnotherapist that costs nothing but helps ensure the hypnotherapist/client relationship is significantly more productive and enjoyable for both parties.  Most are common sense, but others may require awareness.

Hypnotherapy is a self-healing modality.  This is often a strange concept for clients who are use to being told what is wrong with them and how the therapist or doctor will fix it.  And when the authority-figure’s ‘fix’ doesn’t work, they may be told they have a rare genetic disorder or told to ‘try’ yet another unproven treatment…all without much discussion about the true risks and the fact that ‘trying’ implies they are being used as a subject in an experiment.  For too many people conventional treatments seem to disempower and the seemingly unavoidable diagnoses cause panic.

You can help maximize your hypnotherapy experience by:

a.  choosing a hypnotherapist carefully on the basis of their verifiable credentials and track record…do your homework!  This way, you will be comfortable with knowing you are working with someone you are already familiar with, which allows you to trust your inner guide;

b.  being on time, every time, for your sessions and if progress reports are part of the healing program, be diligent with providing your progress reports;  understand that your therapist makes their living at helping others and therefore should be paid fairly for their time and energy on your behalf.  Be certain you have set aside the amount of distraction-free time you need to do the work required to heal yourself.

c.  being a solution-oriented client, not a problem-oriented client.  A solution-oriented client looks for the small positive changes and builds on those.  A problem-oriented client ignores the positive changes and spends their valuable energy and time looking for something in their lives that has not changed yet.  Instead of working to change what has not yet changed, they complain it hasn’t magically fixed itself without their necessary attention to it.

d.  realizing a hypnotherapist cannot ‘fix you’ and has no intention of trying.  A hypnotherapist will help you understand the process and will guide you to self-heal.  A hypnotherapist cannot force you to do anything; they cannot force you to relax, to be mindful of your thinking or to utilize the tools you’ll be provided to help you maximize the benefits of the therapy.  Thus you need to come to your sessions fully committed to healing yourself.

e.  understanding that a hypnotherapist is interested in how you feel about yourself and life and from there can help you bridge your  unproductive and unwanted feelings back to the subconscious reason for those feelings being so persistent in your life.  The best way to help the process is to be as honest as possible about how you feel and what you truly dislike about your feelings and behavior.

In summary, treat your hypnotherapist as you would any other health care professional…with respect, committment to the process and understanding that you need to do your 100% of the work to self-heal.  Full committment to healing oneself is everything…without it, everything is just ‘trying’ and ‘hoping’.

No doubt the millions of people who have experienced the life-changing benefits of hypnotherapy over the decades would shout a resounding yes, hypnotherapy does indeed work. And what’s more, it works without drugs, surgery or long talk therapy. Even such esteemed research hospitals as the Mayo Clinic have enthusiastically touted the benefits of hypnotherapy for many issues, including pain management and relief. It is equally beneficial for children and adults.

Hypnotherapy is a self-healing modality and anyone who is ready and willing to simply follow a hypnotherapist’s basic instructions will find themselves able to get in touch with the underlying causes of their unhappiness and suffering in life in a dignified, empowering way. In my practice at GracePlace Wellness, approximately 98% of my clients do indeed dissolve the underlying emotional root causes of their present life issues. The other 2% seem to be people who are simply not ready, for a variety of reasons to help themselves. Often this 2% have a ‘secondary gain’ reason for not wanting to heal, are in therapy to satisfy others or are the type who simply have an unproductive agenda, such as wanting to prove that hypnosis doesn’t work, or that they can’t be hypnotized.

I share this article below by Dr. Baylock of the Baylock Wellness Report. It speaks for itself and it’s words should disabuse us all of any notion that these drug makers are on our side.

He makes lots of sense and being forewarned is being forearmed. There is mounting evidence that vaccines are actually causing some of the most catastrophic of diseases of our time– autism is an example. He also points out that media has gone beyond misinformation to outright lying – but should we expect anything else when pharmaceuticals butter the bread of all media through billions of advertising dollars.

Vaccine May Be More Dangerous Than Swine Flu

By: Dr. Russell Blaylock, Tuesday, July 7, 2009

An outbreak of swine flu occurred in Mexico this spring that eventually affected 4,910 Mexican citizens and resulted in 85 deaths. By the time it spread to the United States, the virus caused only mild cases of flu-like illness.

Thanks to air travel and the failure of public health officials to control travel from Mexico, the virus spread worldwide. Despite predictions of massive numbers of deaths and the arrival of doomsday, the virus has remained a relatively mild disease, something we know happens each year with flu epidemics.

Worldwide, there have only been 311 deaths out of 70,893 cases of swine flu. In the United States, 27,717 cases have resulted in 127 deaths. Every death is a tragedy, but such a low death rate should not be the basis of a draconian government policy.

It is helpful to recall that the Centers for Disease Control with the collusion of the media, constantly tell us that 36,000 people die from the flu each year, a figure that has been shown to be a lie. In this case, we are talking about 300 plus deaths for the entire world.

This virus continues to be an enigma for virologists. In the April 30, 2009 issue of Nature, a virologist was quoted as saying,“Where the hell it got all these genes from we don’t know.” Extensive analysis of the virus found that it contained the original 1918 H1N1 flu virus, the avian flu virus (bird flu), and two new H3N2 virus genes from Eurasia. Debate continues over the possibility that swine flu is a genetically engineered virus.

Naturally, vaccine manufacturers have been in a competitive battle to produce the first vaccine. The main contenders have been Baxter Pharmaceuticals and Novartis Pharmaceuticals, the latter of which recently acquired the scandal-ridden Chiron vaccine company. Both of these companies have had agreements with the World Health Organization to produce a pandemic vaccine.

The Baxter vaccine, called Celvapan, has had fast track approval. It uses a new vero cell technology, which utilizes cultured cells from the African green monkey. This same animal tissue transmits a number of vaccine-contaminating viruses, including the HIV virus.

The Baxter company has been associated with two deadly scandals. The first event occurred in 2006 when hemophiliac components were contaminated with HIV virus and injected in tens of thousands of people, including thousands of children. Baxter continued to release the HIV contaminated vaccine even after the contamination was known.

The second event occurred recently when it was discovered that Baxter had released a seasonal flu vaccine containing the bird flu virus, which would have produced a real world pandemic, to 18 countries. Fortunately, astute lab workers in the Czech Republic discovered the deadly combination and blew the whistle before a worldwide disaster was unleashed.

Despite these two deadly events, WHO maintains an agreement with Baxter Pharmaceuticals to produce the world’s pandemic vaccine.

Novartis, the second contender, also has an agreement with WHO for a pandemic vaccine. Novartis appears to have won the contract, since their vaccine is near completion. What is terrifying is that these pandemic vaccines contain ingredients, called immune adjuvants that a number of studies have shown cause devastating autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and lupus.

Animal studies using this adjuvant have found them to be deadly. A study using 14 guinea pigs found that when they were injected with the special adjuvant, only one animal survived. A repeat of the study found the same deadly outcome.

So, what is this deadly ingredient? It is called squalene, a type of oil. The Chiron company, maker of the deadly anthrax vaccine, makes an adjuvant called MF-59 which contains two main ingredients of concern—squalene and gp120. A number of studies have shown that squalene can trigger all of the above-mentioned autoimmune diseases when injected.

The MF-59 adjuvant has been used in several vaccines. These vaccines, including tetanus and diphtheria, are the same vaccines frequently associated with adverse reactions.

I reviewed a number of studies on this adjuvant and found something quite interesting. Several studies done on human test subjects found MF-59 to be a very safe immune adjuvant. But when I checked to see who did these studies, I found—to no surprise—that they were done by the Novartis Pharmaceutical Company and Chiron Pharmaceutical Company, which have merged. They were all published in “prestigious” medical journals. Also, to no surprise, a great number of studies done by independent laboratories and research institutions all found a strong link between MF-59 and autoimmune diseases.

Squalene in vaccines has been strongly linked to the Gulf War Syndrome. On August 1991, Anthony Principi, Secretary of Veterans Affairs admitted that soldiers vaccinated with the anthrax vaccine from 1990 to 1991 had an increased risk of 200 percent in developing the deadly disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also called Lou Gehrig’s disease. The soldiers also suffered from a number of debilitating and life-shortening diseases, such as polyarteritis nodosa, multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus, transverse myelitis (a neurological disorder caused by inflammation of the spinal cord), endocarditis (inflammation of the heart’s inner lining), optic neuritis with blindness and glomerulonephritis (a type of kidney disease).

Because squalene, the main ingredient in MF-59, can induce hyperimmune responses and induce autoimmunity, a real danger exists for prolonged activation of the brain’s immune cells, the microglia. This type of prolonged activation has been strongly associated with such diseases as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS and possibly vaccine-related encephalitis. It has been shown that activation of the systemic immune system, as occurs with vaccination, rapidly activates the brain’s microglia at the same time, and this brain inflammation can persist for long periods.

So, how would the gp120 get into the brain? Studies of other immune adjuvants using careful tracer techniques have shown that they routinely enter the brain following vaccination. What most people do not know, even the doctors who recommend the vaccines, is that most such studies by pharmaceutical companies observe the patients for only one to two weeks following vaccination—these types of reactions may take months or even years to manifest.

It is obvious that the vaccine manufacturers stand to make billions of dollars in profits from this WHO/government-promoted pandemic. Novartis, the maker of the new pandemic vaccine, recently announced that they would not give free vaccines to impoverished nations—everybody pays.

One must keep in mind that once the vaccine is injected, there is little you can do to protect yourself—at least by conventional medicine. It will mean a lifetime of crippling illness and early death.

There are much safer ways to protect oneself from this flu virus, such as higher doses of vitamin D3, selective immune enhancement using supplements, and a good diet.

There seems to be no good reason whatever to vaccinate children with Gardasil or any other vaccine for that matter. But the mega-marketing campaigns of this product has even Canadian Provincial governments falling all over themselves to promote it’s use in treating genital warts and preventing cervical and anal cancer. The US FDA has now approved it for prevention of anal cancer, although the most they can say about the product is that it ‘may’ prevent anal cancer, which incidentally is still an uncommon occurrence.

There are a number of facts that the makers, Merck and Co cleverly disguise:

  • HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) in women usually resolves without intervention;
  • There is no evidence that HPV causes cervical cancer despite the pharmaceutical’s claims that it does;
  • Dr. Diane Harper, an obstetrician/gynecologist who performed Merck Gardasil’s clinical trials and served on Merck’s advisory board for the vaccine, told CNN in an interview, “Gardasil is not without risks. It’s not a freebie.” She went on to say that “The rate of serious adverse events is greater than the incidence rate of cervical cancer.”  This is a far cry from the line marketed by the company that it is perfectly safe.

This vaccine and GlaxoSmithKline’s Cervarix are approved to fight off some types of HPV while it is known that in most women, HPV clears up on its own. It is approved for use in people 9 to 26 years of age without independent and verifiable evidence of it’s effectiveness and safety…or for that matter of the need for the massive vaccination programs given that HPV resolves on it’s own in most women.

Dr. Blaylock, a nationally recognized neurosurgeon and editor of the highly recommened The Blaylock Wellness Report said, “Multiply the number of incidents actually reported by ten and you’ll get an accurate number…The vaccine has never been proven to be effective, and by the time the vaccine would be needed to prevent cancer would be years later and the vaccine would be long gone from the system. If you have the organism already in your cervix, the vaccine actually increases the cervical cancer rate.

Dr. Charlotte Haug in an editorial appearing in August 19, 2009 Journal of the American Medical Association stated: “the relationship between infection at a young age and development of cancer 20 to 40 years later is not known.” Yet, these pharmaceutical companies can make wild claims that these vaccines are ‘safe’ and effective.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the following are the adverse effects:

1) Death:  since June 2009, more than 25 million doses of Gardasil have been distributed in the United States. This resulted in 43 deaths, 26 confirmed as Gardasil deaths, 9 under investigation, 8 awaiting confirmation.
2) Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), a peripheral neuropathy that can result in paralysis and death, has been reported to the CDC as a direct result of Gardasil vaccination.
3) Blood clots occurring in the heart, lungs and legs have been triggered by Gardasil.
4) The most commonly reported adverse events associated with the vaccine include fainting, pain at the injection site, headache, nausea, and fever.

At best, the recipients of these vaccines are volunteers for an unnecessary experiment in which the volunterr can lose but the pharmaceutical can’t, because the more ill the vaccine can make the volunteer, the more money in drug sales the pharmaceutical can reap.

I believe we have no right to inject any child with any substance, especially on the say-so of a company which stands to make fortunes on that child becoming very ill and especially because nothing claimed by these companies has ever been proven to be truthful.  Homeopathy can assist in building and supporting a healthy immune system … the body is designed to fight it’s own battles effectively and efficiently, without side-effects.
