Big PharmaThose of us who have long been describing the pharmaceutical industry as a “criminal racket” over the last few years have been wholly vindicated by recent news. Drug and vaccine manufacturer Merck was caught red-handed by two of its own scientists faking vaccine efficacy data by spiking blood samples with animal antibodies. GlaxoSmithKline has just been fined a whopping $3 billion for bribing doctors, lying to the FDA, hiding clinical trial data and fraudulent marketing. Pfizer, meanwhile has been sued by the nation’s pharmacy retailers for what is alleged as an “overarching anticompetitive scheme” to keep generic cholesterol drugs off the market and thereby boost its own profits.

The picture that’s emerging is one of a criminal drug industry that has turned to mafia tactics in the absence of any real science that would prove their products to be safe or effective. The emergence of this extraordinary evidence of bribery, scientific fraud, lying to regulators and monopolistic practices that harm consumers is also making all those doctors and “skeptics” who defended Big Pharma and vaccines eat their words.

To defend Big Pharma today is to defend a cabal of criminal corporations that have proven they will do anything — absolutely anything — to keep their profits rolling in. It makes no difference who they have to bribe, what studies they have to falsify, or who has to be threatened into silence. They will stop at nothing to expand their profit base, even if it means harming (or killing) countless innocents.

Let’s take a look at recent revelations:

GlaxoSmithKline pleads guilty to bribery, fraud and other crimes

In what is now the largest criminal fraud settlement ever to come out of the pharmaceutical industry, GlaxoSmithKline has pleaded guilty and agreed to pay $1 billion in criminal fines and $2 billion in civil fines following a nine-year federal investigation into its activities.

Routinely bribed doctors with luxury vacations and paid speaking gigs

  • Fabricated drug safety data and lied to the FDA
  • Defrauded Medicare and Medicaid out of billions
  • Deceived regulators about the effectiveness of its drugs
  • Relied on its deceptive practices to earn billions of dollars selling potentially dangerous drugs to unsuspecting consumers and medical patients

And this is just the part they got caught doing. GSK doesn’t even deny any of this. The company simply paid the $3 billion fine, apologized to its customers, and continued conducting business as usual.

By the way, in addition to bribing physicians, GSK has plenty of money to spread around bribing celebrities and others who pimps its products. The company reportedly paid $275,000 to the celebrity doctor known as “Dr. Drew,” who promoted Glaxo’s mind-altering antidepressant drug Wellbutrin (http://naturalsociety.com/top-radio-doctor-paid-by-glaxosmithkline).

As the Wall Street Journal reports:

In June 1999, popular radio personality Dr. Drew Pinsky used the airwaves to extol the virtues of GlaxoSmithKline PLC’s antidepressant Wellbutrin, telling listeners he prescribes it and other medications to depressed patients because it “may enhance or at least not suppress sexual arousal” as much as other antidepressants do. But one thing listeners didn’t know was that, two months before the program aired, Dr. Pinsky — who gained fame as “Dr. Drew” during years co-hosting a popular radio sex-advice show “Loveline” — received the second of two payments from Glaxo totaling $275,000 for “services for Wellbutrin.”

Merck falsified vaccine data, spiked blood samples and more, say former employees

According to former Merck virologists Stephen Krahling and Joan Wlochowski, the company: (Mumps Vaccine False Claims).

  • “Falsified test data to fabricate a vaccine efficacy rate of 95 percent or higher.”
  • Spiked the blood test with animal antibodies in order to artificially inflate the appearance of immune system antibodies.
  • Pressured the two virologists to “participate in the fraud and subsequent cover-up.”
  • Used the falsified trial results to swindle the U.S. government out of “hundreds of millions of dollars for a vaccine that does not provide adequate immunization.”
  • Intimidated the scientists, threatening them with going to jail unless they stayed silent.

Millions of children put at risk by Merck

In that document the two virologists say they, “witnessed firsthand the improper testing and data falsification in which Merck engaged to artificially inflate the vaccine’s efficacy findings.”

They also claim that because of the faked vaccine results, “the United States has over the last decade paid Merck hundreds of millions of dollars for a vaccine that does not provide adequate immunization… The United States is by far the largest financial victim of Merck’s fraud.”

They go on to point out that children are the real victims, however:

“But the ultimate victims here are the millions of children who every year are being injected with a mumps vaccine that is not providing them with an adequate level of protection. …The failure in Merck’s vaccine has allowed this disease to linger with significant outbreaks continuing to occur.”

Merck’s mumps viral strain is 45 years old

According to the complaint, Merck has been using the same mumps strain — weakened from generations of being “passaged” — for the last 45 years! The complaint reads:

“For more than thirty years, Merck has had an exclusive license from the FDA to manufacture and sell a mumps vaccine in the U.S. The FDA first approved the vaccine in 1967. It was developed by Dr. Maurice Hilleman, at Merck’s West Point research facility, from the mumps virus that infected his five year-old daughter Jeryl Lynn. Merck continues to use this ‘Jeryl Lynn’ strain of the virus for its vaccine today.”

A complete medical farce

This information appears to show Merck’s mumps vaccine to be a complete medical farce. Those who blindly backed Merck’s vaccines — the science bloggers, “skeptics,” doctors, CDC and even the FDA — have been shown to be utter fools who have now destroyed their reputations by siding with an industry now known to be dominated by scientific fraud and unbounded criminality.

That’s the really hilarious part in all this: After decades of doctors, scientists and government authorities blindly and brainlessly repeating the mantra of “95% effectiveness,” it all turns out to be total quackery hogwash. Utterly fabricated. Quackety-quack quack. And all those hundreds of millions of Americans who lined up to be injected with MMR vaccines were all repeatedly and utterly conned into potentially harming themselves while receiving no medical benefit.

Intelligent, informed Natural News readers, home school parents, and “awakened” people who said “No!” to vaccines are now emerging as the victors in all this. By refusing to be injected with Merck’s vaccines, they avoided being assaulted with a fraudulent cocktail of adjuvant chemicals and all-but-useless mumps strains over four decades old. They protected their time, money and health. Those who refuse to be physically violated by vaccines are, once again, turning out to be the smartest people in society. No wonder they also tend to be healthier than the clueless fools who line up to get vaccinated every year.

Merck fraudulently misrepresented the efficacy of its vaccine and contributed to the spread of infectious disease, says lawsuit

The faked vaccine efficacy numbers aren’t the only troubles Merck is now facing. Shortly after the above False Claims Act was made public, Chatom Primary Care filed suit against Merck.

It alleges that:

  • [Merck engaged in] …a decade-long scheme to falsify and misrepresent the true efficacy of its vaccine.
  • Merck fraudulently represented and continues to falsely represent in its labeling and elsewhere that its Mumps Vaccine has an efficacy rate of 95 percent of higher.
  • Merck knows and has taken affirmative steps to conceal — by using improper testing techniques and falsifying test data — that its Mumps Vaccine is, and has been since at least 1999, far less than 95 percent effective.
  • Merck designed a testing methodology that evaluated its vaccine against a less virulent strain of the mumps virus. After the results failed to yield Merck’s desired efficacy, Merck abandoned the methodology and concealed the study’s findings.
  • Merck also engaged in “incorporating the use of animal antibodies to artificially inflate the results… destroying evidence of the falsified data and then lying to an FDA investigator… threatened a virologist in Merck’s vaccine division with jail if he reported the fraud to the FDA.”
  • “Merck designed a testing methodology that evaluated its vaccine against a less virulent strain of the mumps virus. After the results failed to yield Merck’s desired efficacy, Merck abandoned the methodology and concealed the study’s findings. [Then] Merck designed even more scientifically flawed methodology, this time incorporating the use of animal antibodies to artificially inflate the results, but it too failed to achieve Merck’s fabricated efficacy rate. Confronted with two failed methodologies, Merck then falsified the test data to guarantee the results it desired. Having achieved the desired, albeit falsified, efficacy threshold, Merck submitted these fraudulent results to the FDA and European Medicines Agency.”
  • “Merck took steps to cover up the tracks of its fraudulent testing by destroying evidence of the falsified data and then lying to an FDA investigator… Merck also attempted to buy the silence and cooperation of its staff by offering them financial incentives to follow the direction of Merck personnel overseeing the fraudulent testing process. Merck also threatened… Stephen Krahling, a virologist in Merck’s vaccine division from 1999 to 2001, with jail if he reported fraud to the FDA.”
  • “Merck continued to conceal what it knew about the diminished efficacy of its Mumps Vaccine even after significant mumps outbreaks in 2006 and 2009.”

Obama administration has zero interest in actual justice

Another interesting note in all this is that under President Obama, the U.S. Dept. of Justice showed no interest whatsoever in investigating Merck over the False Claims Act filed by two of its former virologists. Despite the convincing evidence of fraud described in detail by insider whistleblowers, the Obama Department of Justice, led by gun-running Attorney General Eric Holder who is already facing serious questions over Operation Fast and Furious, simply chose to ignore the False Claims Act complaint.

When evidence of criminal fraud was brought before the U.S. Department of Justice, in other words, the DoJ looked the other way with a wink and a nod to the medical crimes taking place right under their noses. Who cares if tens of millions of children are being injected year after year with a fraudulent mumps vaccine? There’s money to be made, after all, and exploiting the bodies of little children for profit is just business as usual in a fascist nation dominated by corporate interests.

Pfizer sued by retailers over anticompetitive scheme

Adding to all this, Pfizer has now been sued by five U.S. retailers (pharmacies) who accuse the company of monopolistic market practices. According to the lawsuit, Pfizer conspired to prevent generic versions of its blockbuster cholesterol drug Lipitor from entering the market. This was done to protect billions in profits while making sure patients did not have access to more affordable cholesterol drugs. Pfizer sells nearly $10 billion worth of Lipitor each year.

According to the Reuters report on this lawsuit, Pfizer is being accused of www.reuters.com/article…

  • Obtaining a fraudulent patent
  • Engaging in sham litigation
  • Entering a price-fixing agreement to delay cheaper generics
  • Entering arrangements with pharmacy benefit managers to force retailers to buy more Lipitor (chemical name is atorvastatin calcium)

No arrests or prosecution of Big Pharma executives

One of the most astonishing realizations in all this is that given all the criminal fraud, bribery, misrepresentation, lying to the FDA, price fixing and other crimes that are going on in the pharmaceutical industry, you’d think somebody somewhere might be arrested and charged with a crime, right?

Nope.

To date, not a single pharmaceutical CEO, marketing employee or drug rep has been charged with anything related to all this fraud. In America, drug company employees are “above the law” just like top mafia bosses of a bygone era.

How insane is this, exactly? Consider this:

Imagine if YOU, an individual, went around town bribing doctors, falsifying data, selling a fraudulent product to the government, lying to regulators, engaging in anti-trade price-fixing and threatening your employees into silence. What would happen to you?

You’d probably wind up rotting in prison, the subject of an FBI investigation and a DoJ prosecution.

So why is it okay for a multi-billion-dollar corporation to carry out these same crimes and get away with it? Why are the CEOs of top drug companies given a free pass to commit felony crimes and endless fraud?

I’ll tell you why, and you’re not gonna like the answer: Because America has become a nation run by crooks for the benefit of crooks. It’s one big country club, and as comedian George Carlin used to say, “YOU ain’t in it!”

If Big Pharma would falsify data on vaccines, what else would the industry do?

I hope you’re getting the bigger picture in all this, friends. If these drug companies routinely bribe doctors, falsify data, defraud the government and commit felony crimes without remorse, what else would they be willing to do for profit?

Would they:

  • Falsify efficacy data on other prescription drugs?
  • Exploit children for deadly vaccine trials?
  • Invent fictitious diseases to sell more drugs?
  • Unleash bioweapons to cause a profitable pandemic?
  • Conspire with the CDC to spread fear to promote vaccinations?
  • Silence whistleblowers who try to go public with the truth?
  • Give people cancer via stealth viruses in vaccines?
  • Destroy the careers of medical scientists who question Big Pharma?
  • Force a medical monopoly on the entire U.S. population via socialist health care legislation?

But of course they would. In fact, the industry is doing all those things right now. And if you don’t believe me, just remember that five years ago, no one believed me when I said drug companies were engaged in criminal conspiracies to defraud the nation — something that has now been proven over a nine-year investigation.

send-in-the-clownsIn The Tiimes last October, they reported on the plight of tranquiliser addicts. Yesterday, the 16th January, the headline appeared “GP’s warned to steer clear of the tranquiliser trap”. Almost 18 million prescriptions are written every year for Benzodiazepines and for Z drugs, a group of tranquilisers known to have similar long-term effects as Valium.
They reported that despite explicit guidelines from NICE – the healthcare regulator, that Benzodiazepines should be used for no more than 4 weeks. It is however, believed that as many as 1million men and women use the medication regularly.

A spokesman for All Party Parliamentary group on Involuntary Tranquiliser Addiction said “The Department of Health is still providing no treatment for this illness which it created. Leaving “Benzo” addicts to rely on services designed for users of illegal drugs such as cocaine and heroin.

In the business section, Deputy Business Editor Andrew Clark reported on AstraZeneca who employ 7,500 people in Britain. AstraZeneca’s global workforce has fallen 10,000 to 57,200 over the past 4 years and new drugs for arthritis, depression and infant lung disease have failed in clinical trials. Apparently, government ministers are concerned about the company’s plight. David Willetts, the Science Minister, recently intervened to try and encourage the NHS Trust to adopt “Brilique” a new AstraZeneca drug for heart attack sufferers. AstraZeneca’s plight in common with all pharmaceutical companies, is that they are now being scrutinised more independently revealing previously hidden side effects and exaggerated benefits, meaning fewer drugs make it to market due to failing trials.

The problem for governments is that Big Pharma as a major employer and tax provider, is too big to fail. Also of course, the medical profession relies totally on their products, it is rare for a doctor to suggest anything other than a drug of some type or another, despite not fully understanding the possible risks from side effects due to the under-reporting of ADR (adverse drug reactions) hidden in the majority of drug trials. If alternative healthcare was also free at the time of use, the pressure on Doctors would in all likelihood rapidly diminish, allergies in particular and several other supposed untreatable diseases would become far less of a problem, potentially saving the NHS millions of pounds each year. Not of course a popular idea with Big Pharma!

In reference to the title of this blog, the joke is on us.

the_truth_about_gardasilFollowing the recent news article regarding contaminated Gardasil vaccines, it got me thinking about a conversation I had last year with a very concerned parent. Her daughter, aged 14, was being offered the vaccine at school and her mother was very hesitant having read several articles about the dangers of the vaccine. She told me at the time that it did not matter what she said, her daughter was adamant that all her friends were having the vaccine and she was not going to be left out. Her mothers biggest concern was that her daughter was able to decide for herself and did not need parental consent. I was surprised by this so decided to dig around a little to see what information I could find.
On the surface, it would seem that a child under the age of 18 does need a signed consent form from a parent. However, digging a little further it would seem that parents have little or no say at all. I looked on an NHS forum and found this response from a concerned parent – “A letter of consent asks me my permission, then takes great pains to explain that it is irrelevant anyways, citing reference to a court case that has absolutely nothing to do with vaccinations. It uses very strong threat that my decision will be overruled anyways no matter what I decide, and peer pressure & threat will be applied to any 12-14 old that refuses the jabs without any protection from me”.

The other comments on the forum are very concerning, many people claiming that their daughter has experienced symptoms associated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and ME since the vaccine was given but then other people stating that CFS and ME are naturally occurring in the UK (naturally occurring??! Has this become something we can all expect to get at some point because it is naturally occurring?!) On further reading I came across a website specifically created to inform about the truth of the Gardasil vaccine. They have a lot of information on there and for anyone considering this decision for themselves or their child I would recommend a visit, www.truthaboutgardasil.org/

The information out there is mind boggling and it is not easy for busy parents to find the time to do this, but really, it is worth it to be able to make an informed decision. One young girl commented on a forum that I came across “Well I had the vaccine, I had an achey arm but that was it, what is the problem, it is done now”. Yes, it is done, the vaccine is in the system, I guess only time will tell what long term effects it may bring, the short term ones certainly do not look good so far and the vaccine has not been in existence long enough to monitor the longer term effects, even if anyone was prepared to give the honest truth about what those effects may be.

I urge every person to investigate fully before making an informed decision on these subjects, look for yourself, do not just take anothers opinion for you never know the motivation behind their “truth”. If you have had any experience with these issues, please share with us, send any information you have to: info@vitalbodyhealth.com

yellow-card-issuesAs you may know, medical practitioners have an obligation to report all adverse drug reactions using what is known in the health industry as Yellow Card reporting. Without this feedback it is near impossible for Health Agencies to form an accurate opinion regarding drug safety.
Sadly, this procedure is often neglected by a large number of clinics. I asked a practice nurse I treated for her latex allergy how many yellow cards they sent out per month? “We don’t do those” she replied. Obviously this leads to some people experiencing side effects only to be told that there is no connection between the side effects and the drug in question.

A man in his 60’s who I was helping with his back pain told me he would be unable to see me again for 2-3 weeks as he was to have the flu jab and this always laid him out for a few weeks after. I could not help but ask him why , if it made him so ill, did he agree to have it? He said because of his diabetes he was unable to refuse any treatment recommended because if he did, then he feared he would be removed from the GP’s patient list. He did, however, report each year to his Doctor following his illness after having the flu jab. He was always told there is no connection.

Crazy business and not much to do with health care, but there are a number of cases far worse than this regarding vaccinations during pregnancy. Pregnant mothers have been recommended to have a double dose of the flu jab and told it was risk free. This has led to an increase in foetal deaths by 4,250%.

whats-up-docDon’t they trust you? Why are we as patients being instructed not to ask our Doctor for antibiotics as they may not be necessary? Surely our Doctor or Doctors will know whether or not a specific drug is appropriate and prescribe accordingly? Of course it could suggest a lack of faith in our Doctors ability to say “no” when faced with a demanding patient and if that is the case then it’s Doctors that need counseling, not their patients.
I would imagine that Doctors must feel aggrieved at the lack of trust being demonstrated in their ability to prescribe appropriately no matter how difficult the situation. In any case, there soon wont be much point in asking for antibiotics, as they become increasingly ineffective, with no replacement drugs likely in the immediate future.

Make with the carrots, Doc at least they support the immune system.

medical-dogmaIn any walk of life it is a good idea to be able to keep more than one idea in your head at the same time and when it comes to healthcare, it is essential. As a case in point, one idea that seems to be fixed in the minds of the medical profession is in relation to the rise in Pertussis (whooping cough).
Despite the fact that there is a high uptake of the Pertussis vaccine, the incidence of whooping cough is increasing. This would, to me at least, suggest that the vaccine is not providing the promised protection against this disease. Or possibly does not work at all? This being the most likely explanation for the increase in whooping cough cases, how can the answer to the problem be yet more of the same vaccine?

The continuation of this one idea is to vaccinate pregnant women, in the hope that new born babies will be protected. Apart from the fact this particular vaccine is failing to provide protection against Pertussis, how sure can one be that acquired immunity will pass to the unborn child from the mother in the same way that natural immunity works? Is there any medical evidence I wonder that supports this hypothesis?

If protection does in fact transmit to the unborn, then why is it that mothers who have been vaccinated, also need to have their babies vaccinated, surely there is no need for this if the theory works in practice?

how-safe-are-prescription-drugsVery safe, partially safe, or downright recklessly dangerous?
Being the type of person not averse to taking the occasional painkiller or the odd course of antibiotics for my recurring dental problems, I would, like most people, wish to believe that prescribed medication is very safe. After all the Pharmaceutical Industry invests countless millions every year on research and development, very reassuring, or is it?

Lets consider some recent events which give cause for concern: In 2007 Bristol-Myers were fined 375m for illegally offering gifts to doctors for promoting drugs for illnesses for which they were not approved. In 2008 Merck Co paid $418m to the US government, relating to it’s drugs Vioxx and Zocor. In 2009 Pfizer paid $1.5bn for improperly marketing their arthritis drug Bextra. Glaxo paid a record fine of $1.9bn for encouraging doctors to prescribe drugs such as Seroxat an antidepressant for patients where it was contra-indicated.

Roche the Swiss pharmaceutical Co withheld information that over 15000 Americans died from taking its drugs. They also covered up 65,000 other cases of suspected side effects, due to drugs such as Herceptin, prescribed for breast cancer patients and Lucentis for loss of sight due to ageing. A few weeks ago Abbotts Laboratories were fined over a $1bn for wrongly marketing an anti-psychotic drug called Depakote.

All of these fines totalling many billions of dollars relate to drugs usually taken orally, but what of other treatments like vaccinations?

Like me, you may have wondered just how BSE in our beef herds, crossed over and became vCJD in humans, causing devastating brain destruction. If vCJD was caused by eating beef then how did vegetarian non meat eaters also become infected and why did it infect a fairly narrow age group, with an average at death of 28 years? The majority of cases have occurred in the UK, the first person to display symptoms became ill in 1994. There have also been a few cases in other countries, which are thought to have been caused by exposure to BSE while residing in the UK.

The narrow age range and the anomaly where non meat eaters in this same group became infected, suggests the possibility of a causal factor other than consuming beef products. People of all ages consumed vast quantities of beef during the period of likely infection, but only youngsters contracted vCJD. BSE has only been found in the brain and spinal nerve tissue of cattle and not in the skeletal muscles which provide the Sunday roast, burgers, steaks etc. Although bovine brain and spinal cord are not eaten they are used, particularly in the production of vaccines.

This bovine tissue is used in the manufacture of the polio vaccine, a process known as attenuation, where the infecting virus is cultured to produce a vaccine which mimics the disease, creating antibodies to provide protection without actually causing the disease itself. But what if this tissue is infected with BSE?

The company contracted to provide 11 million doses of the polio vaccine was Medever, who were unlikely to be aware of BSE in the herds. Could it be that vCJD occurred due to this type of transmission? Is that why Medeva sold their vaccination arm to another pharmaceutical Co Celtech who in turn sold on this possible poison chalice to yet another company, both prior to the publication of the Sir Peter Phillips report into the likely cause of vCJD?

Could they have been tipped off?

Just my musings of course, but it would explain why vCJD occurred in that particular age group and why non meat eaters also became victim to this terrible disease.

Every day, thousands of Americans are operated on because they eat processed, dead and poisonous food and want their doctor and surgeon to “fix them” and extend their life, while most people keep right on eating and drinking in the same chronic way that perpetuates health detriment.

Every day, thousands and thousands of Americans go under the knife, where doctors, surgeons, radiologists and oncologists gather around the bright lights and keep you from bleeding to death, while they remove organs that process food and filter toxins, and yet still offer NO ADVICE to combat and fix the root of the problem. Even breast cancer is mainly a result of consuming toxins. Consider for a moment the function of many of the body parts that Western Medicine doesn’t hesitate to remove, and the Big Pharma pockets get bigger and fatter all the while.

Colon and bladder removal often unnecessary

The colon is the final part of the digestive system. The colon reabsorbs fluids and then processes and prepares waste products for elimination. The bladder is about the size of a pear, and it collects urine excreted by the kidneys, preparing it for disposal. If you eat pesticides regularly (that’s most conventional food and all GMO), drink fluoridated tap water (industrial toxins), and you use cheap corporate products on your skin, then your colon and bladder are the “last stop” for those toxins in the body, burning your soft tissue, creating digestive chaos and trapping bad bacteria in divots full of toxic gluten. Your bladder is the “last stop” for alcohol, pesticide, bleach, fluoride, aspartame, Roundup* herbicide and dangerous petroleum byproducts used by 90% of corporate America’s cosmetic industry.

Here’s a thought: Instead of removing the human colon or bladder in a superbug-laden hospital for no good reason, simply remove the CHEMICALS from your daily intake, and watch those filtration organ problems simply dissipate and disappear.

Liver transplant

The liver produces bile to help break down fats and carry away waste. The liver also produces proteins for blood plasma. Oxygenated and nutrient-rich blood must flow into the liver so it can perform its vital functions, but hundreds of agricultural chemicals make this difficult — destroying nutrition in soil and food before it ever enters a mouth. Toxic preservatives in foods, like sodium benzoate, suffocate mitochondria (cells), and other toxins cause programmed cell death. Meanwhile, the liver is trying to process GMOs, genetically MUTATED food that contains bug killer and weed killer which no person should ever eat at any concentration or quantity. The liver gets suffocated and severely under-nourished (it’s like starving and choking at the same time). Then, US surgeons operate to transplant someone else’s “donation,” and why? — So that person can go on eating and drinking chemicals, taxing the “new” liver until failure, again?

Breast removal (one or both)

Nearly all breast cancer tumors can be found in the upper-quadrant closest to the armpit, including breast cancer for men. And why is that? Chemicals in antiperspirants and chemicals in deodorants. You didn’t know? From aluminum to parabens and phthalates, there’s a laundry list of carcinogens in those products that go virtually unregulated in America. Still, there are walks “for the cure” that feature buckets of hydrogenated fried chicken and drinks with artificial sweeteners as their sponsors. People have it all “bass ackwards.”

Most women in America, thanks to MDs and oncologists, after having one or both breasts removed, will go on using the same toxic antiperspirants and deodorants, the same toxic makeup, and eating the same toxic artificial sweeteners, because those doctors can’t and don’t speak a word about organic food or organic personal care products. It leads to more cancer, which is addressed in the USA with chemotherapy, which is more toxins that cause new cancers. People butt their heads against the same hard walls, over and over again.

Most surgery to remove organs or body parts is a huge waste of time and money, and is dangerous to the patient (victim in this case). Removing kidneys, kidney stones, gall stones, the gall bladder, the appendix and the spleen can be detrimental, especially to someone who still doesn’t understand nutrition, and so can liposuction. Even tonsils shouldn’t be removed, because their main function is to trap germs like bacteria or viruses that you might otherwise breathe in. That’s why antibodies are produced by the immune cells in the tonsils. Still, doctors are quick to take them out if the parents agree with the “diagnosis” given. And then there are vaccines and flu shots to destroy what immunity IS LEFT, but that’s another article entirely.

Unnecessary surgery on dying seniors

FYI: Several colleagues from the Harvard School of Public Health recently reported that 1.8 million Medicare beneficiaries age 65 or older died in 2008, and over 34% were operated on during their last year, 25% in their last month, and 10% in their last week of life. There’s no question about it — you don’t want Big Pharma removing your immunity-building and cleansing organs. That’s just asking for Big Pharma-style problems, and you certainly don’t want any part of those! Research how to detoxify your body of these food toxins and abstain from eating Monsanto’s Roundup* or GMOs, so you can avoid UNNECESSARY SURGERY. And remember, whatever you do… Don’t Eat Cancer!

Touted by American progressives as a gold standard of care that the U.S. should utilize and that Obamacare sought to mimic in many ways, the top physician for Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) has claimed it is “not fit for the future,” and without major changes, the system may have to abandon it’s primary feature — free care for all.

As reported by Britain’s Daily Mail, Prof. Sir Bruce Keogh, the medical director of NHS England, says that the healthcare system has to become far less reliant on hospitals and overall needs a “complete transformation” in the way it operates.

In an interview with Britain’s Guardian newspaper, Keogh sounded the alarm.

“If the NHS continues to function as it does now, it’s going to really struggle to cope because the model of delivery and service that we have at the moment is not fit for the future,” he said.

For one, he noted, general practitioner offices have to be provided more resources in order to deal with added pressures of demand and tightening budgets.

The nation’s top physician went on to say that, in order for the healthcare system to remain viable, additional services would need to be consolidated under the same roof, such as diagnostic testing and a wider range of treatments at the offices of general practitioners.

“If not,” he said, “we will get to a place where the NHS becomes unaffordable and we will have to make some very difficult decisions which will get to the very heart of the principle of the NHS and its values.”

“They get pushed from pillar to post

Continuing, he said, “This will open up a whole series of discussions about whether the NHS is fit for purpose, whether it’s affordable, and whether the compact with the citizen of free healthcare for all is sustainable in the longer term.

“Too many patients find the NHS fragmented (and) confusing. They find that they get pushed from pillar to post; they feel like a ball in a pinball machine at times,” said Keogh.

The NHS chief went on to deny allegations that ambulance services, emergency rooms and general practitioner offices were struggling to cope with dwindling resources, even though wait times for some of those services are the longest they’ve been in a decade. In fact, the Daily Mail noted, three of 10 ambulance services in England have been forced to declare a critical alert during the past few months.

Still, Keogh said there was no “crisis.”

“Everybody that’s working out there in the NHS knows that they’re under a lot of pressure at the moment,” he said. “They don’t like the term ‘crisis’ being applied willy-nilly.

“It’s an evocative term which is also provocative and is used too freely for the wrong reasons,” he added. “It’s a period of unprecedented pressure, of undue pressure. But the NHS is facing very difficult times, yes. The word ‘crisis’ implies that you can’t deal with it.”

He stated further, though, that frontline services were currently “going through a critical phase” but said they would eventually recover.

A spokesman for the Department of Health, who was not named by the Mail, said things were under control.

More needs, fewer resources, more cuts – Obamacare?

“In common with healthcare systems around the world, the NHS is facing unprecedented demand, but undermining the principle of services being free at the point of use is not the answer,” said the spokesman. “Instead, we are backing the NHS’s plan for the future and have provided an extra £2bn in funding next year to transform out-of-hospital care and meet the needs of an ageing population.”

In an interview with The Guardian, Andrew Gwynne, the acting health minister, said, “We have long warned that the collapse of community services would drag down the NHS and that is what we can see now that hospitals have record numbers of older people who can’t be discharged. Labour agrees with Prof Sir Bruce Keogh that a key part of the way to make the NHS affordable and sustainable in this century is to give patients more care where they want it.”

As Natural News reported in September 2012, Britain’s healthcare system has been struggling for some time, and could be a precursor for the U.S. medical system, now in the clutches of Obamacare: NaturalNews.com.

Walking corpse syndrome is a very rare neurological disease, formerly known as Cotard’s Syndrome or Cotard’s Delusion, named after the French neurologist Jules Cotard. Cotard’s observations with his patient, Mademoiselle X, earned him the right to have the disease to be named after him, but his patient’s case, circa 1888, was not the first ever recorded.

In 1788, Dr. Charles Bonnet treated an elderly woman with “the powder of precious stones and opium” after insisting she was dead and in another place. She had demanded she be placed in a coffin and mourned after recovering from a short spell of paralysis and loss of sensation or feeling. The treatment worked for her, but she would have occasional relapses afterward.

This syndrome or delusion has nothing to do with “Zombie Apocalypse”, as covered by Health Ranger Mike Adams during some very strange episodes in 2012 in Miami and other spots in that region.

Those were delusional flesh eating Zombie episodes, where a few physically healthy and well fed individuals were compelled to eat live animal or human flesh. You can read that here (http://www.naturalnews.com/035990_zombie_apocalypse_miami_police.html).

How Cotard’s Syndrome differs from zombie delusions or compulsions

Extremely rare Cotard Syndrome is the opposite of any zombie delusions. Victims are convinced they are dead or their organs are dead, including their brain in some cases. But they usually don’t want to eat. After all, they’re dead, so why bother?

Besides, there’s no pleasure in eating anymore. Some victims even die of starvation. A loss of feeling and sensation is at the core of this delusion.

Social disconnects are also basic to this delusion. Human interaction is avoided. There’s just no interest. At 14 years of age, Alabama teen Haley Smith had suffered emotionally during her parents divorce. One day in her English class, she had a feeling she couldn’t shake that she was dead. The school nurse couldn’t detect anything.

Haley’s eating disorder was different than most other cases of Cotard’s Syndrome. She decided that she could eat how much of whatever she wanted to eat since she was dead and wouldn’t gain weight or suffer other health consequences. She had a brief spontaneous recovery, but soon after that totally numb feeling returned.

“I’d fantasize about having picnics in graveyards and I’d spend a lot of time watching horror films because seeing the zombies made me feel relaxed, like I was with family,” Haley explained. She spent a lot of time in bed and often missed school, until one day she attempted to reconnect with one of her friends.

Surprised and emboldened by his understanding her experience, she disclosed her condition with her dad. He urged her to see a psychiatrist. But it took Haley another two years to actually do it. Then she was diagnosed with Cotard’s Syndrome (CS). With that handle, she went online to discover others who felt out of touch with their bodies and wanted to visit graveyards. Now she knew she wasn’t alone.

Talk therapy helped her pull through as well as her relationship with her boyfriend, now fiance’ Jeremy, and Disney movies. She had started to watch and enjoy them, getting “warm fuzzy feelings”. That made her begin to realize she wasn’t dead. Now she’s set on advising others who suffer from CS.

Haley was lucky she didn’t succumb to psychiatry’s other solutions: Anti-depressant and anti-psychotic pharmaceuticals with unpredictability and serious side effects, or ECT (electroconvulsive therapy). Yes, good ole’ shock therapy! Those are the go-to standard of care interventions of conventional psychiatry.

Her solution was through talk therapy, a boyfriend, and Disney. You might consider time for her to heal from the trauma of her parents divorce as another aspect of Haley’s healing.
