(Natural News) Will the American Medical Association soon be in favor of physician-assisted suicide? In early June, the AMA decided not to reaffirm its position against assisted suicide – a decision which has shocked many. But indeed, the AMA has gone against its own Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs, which recommended the AMA maintain its opposition of euthanasia for humans.
Advocates for assisted suicide have been very successful at opening doors for euthanasia in medicine. In some states, affiliate groups have already taken a more neutral stance on this issue, paving the way for legislators to approve the legalization of doctor-assisted suicide. While proponents of euthanasia say that their cause gives patients the right to a dignified death, the issue isn’t really that cut and dry. There are substantial concerns about the potential for abuse and coercion. Inevitably, this could give rise to an untold number of citizens quietly being put to death against their will – while no one will be the wiser.
Matt Vallière, the Executive Director of Patients Rights Action Fund, told Life News that he, and other advocates for patients’ rights, are very concerned about the AMA’s sudden change of heart.
“The American Medical Association’s decision to not confirm their own Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs’ recommendation – namely that they maintain their opposition to assisted suicide – does not take into account that this bad public policy puts vulnerable patients at high risk for coercion, mistakes and even abuse. Although the AMA’s opposition position still stands for now, a referral back to CEJA is a lost opportunity and a failure to stand against a policy that has grave consequences for everyone, but especially persons living with illness, disabilities, or socio-economic disadvantage. Assisted suicide is not medical care,” Vallière stated.
A scathing post-market study on FDA-approved drugs conducted by some members of the American Medical Association has made it to the headlines. It concludes that almost “one-third of new drugs approved by U.S. regulators over a decade ended up years later with warnings about unexpected — sometimes life-threatening — side effects or complications.”
Researchers looked at potential problems that cropped up during the routine monitoring that’s done once a medicine has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration and is on the market. The results, published Tuesday, covered all 222 prescription drugs approved by the FDA from 2001 through 2010.
The 71 drugs that were flagged included top sellers for treating depression, arthritis, infections and blood clots. Safety issues included risks for serious skin reactions, liver damage, cancer and even death.
“The large percentage of problems was a surprise,” and they included side effects not seen during the review process, said senior author Dr. Joseph Ross, an associate professor of medicine and public health at Yale University.
While most safety concerns were not serious enough to prompt recalls, the findings raise questions about how thoroughly drugs are tested before approval, said drug safety expert Thomas Moore.
But Ross said the results suggest that the FDA “is kind of doing a great job” at scrutinizing drugs after approval.
New drugs are generally tested first in hundreds or even thousands of people for safety and effectiveness.
Surely, not one of those guinea pigs are their close relatives.
Among the drugs that were found to be life-threatening are Bextra, Raptiva, Zelnorm, and others:
… The study counted black-box warnings for dozens of drugs. These warnings involved serious problems including risk of death or life-threatening conditions linked with the drugs.
There were also alerts for less serious potential harms related to dozens of drugs. Among them: Humira, used for arthritis and some other illnesses; Abilify, used for depression and other mental illness; and Pradaxa, a blood thinner.
Three drugs were withdrawn because of the potential for death or other serious harm. They were Bextra, an anti-inflammatory medicine, because of incidence of heart problems; Raptiva, a psoriasis drug, which is linked to a rare nervous system illness; and Zelnorm, a bowel illness drug, which has been connected to heart problems.

Here is a book written by a man who passed on in 2010 in his 80s. He had the benefit of an overview of last century’s developments in real time. He saw much behind the official stories we hear on media and from our education systems. For those who are awake to these realities, this is a refreshing reminder that back before internet was here, there were still those who were equally as awake as ourselves. Note also Wikipedia calls him a conspiracy theorist, a convenient word coined to divert serious questioners from the truth. Although the author deals with many issues in his other works, in this particular one he exposes the corruption of our health treatment systems, away from natural cures and towards pharmaceuticals, tracing it right back to its origins. A must read if you really want to know the truth. There are many lectures of his also on Youtube if you search there.
From the Foreword: The present work, the result of some forty years of investigative research, is a logical progression from my previous books: the expose of the international control of monetary issue and banking practices in the united States; a later work revealing the secret network of organizations through which these alien forces wield political power–the secret committees, foundations, and political parties through which their hidden plans are implemented; and now; to the most vital issue of all, the manner in which these depredations affect the daily lives and health of American citizens. Despite the great power of the hidden rulers, I found that only one group has the power to issue life or death sentences to any American – our nation’s physicians.
I discovered that these physicians, despite their great power, were themselves subjected to very strict controls over every aspect of their professional lives. These controls, surprisingly enough, were not wielded by any state or federal agency, although almost every other aspect of American life is now under the absolute control of the bureaucracy. They physicians have their own autocracy, a private trade association, the American Medical Association. This group, which is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, had gradually built up its power until it assumed total control over medical schools and the accreditation of physicians….
Following is an interview of Eustace Mullins on the same topic, Death by Injection
TruthViews on Youtube
Eustace Mullins (1923-2010), discusses one of his best-selling books; ‘Murder by Injection’ exposing the unholy dynasty of the big drug companies, the medical establishment, the Rockefeller syndicate and the evils of the cut-slash-and-burn cancer racket that has killed millions in the name of ‘fighting cancer.’
While there are many books on the corruption of modern medicine, there is no other book out there that so effectively tells the whole story as does this seminal volume, laying bare the criminal machinations of those who profit in the name of “promoting good health.” The federal bureaucracy that ostensibly “regulates” the big drug companies is all part and parcel of the problem.
Since reading the information recently fed to us by the pediatrics journal persuading mothers that breast feeding is not natural, it seems pertinent now, especially as a member of the older generation, to affirm parents that breast feeding is indeed natural. And please don’t stop. A thorough read of the original article makes it very clear that the concern by the powers that be are related to the refusal of vaccines and genetically modified food. Among other things. If you’ve researched these two items you’ll also know that neither are they natural.
” …thanks to the Flexner Report and the destructive efforts of the AMA, all homeopathic colleges were wiped out by 1950 and most U.S. citizens know little about its healing potential…” NaturalNews
A quick glance at our little known histories tell us that the medical profession was heisted in the early part of last century following the Flexner report – heisted for profit. A time when the natural treatments were shut down in favour of unnatural chemicals to ‘cure’ our bodies – instead of the natural strengthening and maintenance of our own immune systems, something that begins at the breast.
“Simply put, oil tycoon J.D. Rockefeller was determined to control the pharmaceutical industry and ‘modern’ medicine – but, first, he had to get rid of the competition such as, naturopathy, homeopathy, herbalists or any other physician associated with holistic medicine. To do this: Rockefeller funded Andrew Flexner to create the “Flexner Report” – by 1910.
In this bogus report, Flexner visited all the medical schools in the United States and determined that we had ‘too many’ physicians and medical schools. Ultimately, in a classic strategy of “problem, reaction, solution” – Rockefeller (through his media connections) generated enough public outcry to motivate Congress to declare the AMA – the only group authorized to grant medical school licenses in the U.S.”
This latest attack on mother nature’s super food is an insidious attack on our right to healthy bodies. Coming from so-called experts on our kids. Many medical professionals who have stood against this flood of insanity have lost their careers and their lives even.
The public reaction to this flawed information has been, rightfully, outrage. This is to be expected because the new info is simply neither normal nor right, and it opposes our very maternal instincts. Long may this continue.
So here we have Dr Mercola explaining, for those who are not aware, why mother’s milk is best.
By Dr. Mercola
Breastfeeding rates continue to rise in the US. In 2011, the most recent year for which data is available, 79 percent of newborn infants started breastfeeding.1This is wonderful news, as breastfeeding offers life-long health benefits, not just for the child, but for the mother as well.
Many women do not have access to the truth about breastfeeding and have been misled by infant-formula marketing to believe they must spend thousands of dollars a year to provide the best nutrition for their babies.
In reality (and barring any extreme exceptions such as certain transmittable diseases or drug use), breast milk is the best food for babies, period.
As reported by the World Health Organization (WHO), breastfeeding is the “normal way” of providing infants with the nutrients they need to grow and develop. They continue:
“Virtually all mothers can breastfeed, provided they have accurate information, and the support of their family, the health care system and society at large. Colostrum, the yellowish, sticky breast milk produced at the end of pregnancy, is recommended by WHO as the perfect food for the newborn, and feeding should be initiated within the first hour after birth.
Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended up to 6 months of age, with continued breastfeeding along with appropriate complementary foods up to two years of age or beyond.”
Proper nutrition in infancy has lasting effects on health and well-being. A study of nearly 6,000 babies followed from birth until they turned 30 years old found that those who were breastfed had increased intelligence, longer schooling, and higher earning as adults.2
With the high rate of disappearance/death by suspicious circumstances/murder/suicide of Holistic Medical Practitioners these days, it’s pertinent surely to be asking questions? And it’s not hard to find answers … a brief research of the history of medicine reveals some very telling information. As always, follow the money trail. People now are becoming more proactive about their health and seeking out Doctors who will encourage the facilitation of prevention of disease rather than the endless treatment of the symptoms with chemical/synthetic pills. Our bodies were equipped at birth with immune systems which were designed to prevent disease and to heal the body. Previous posts here clearly indicate that at least one in three, higher in some places, are dying of cancer. Were modern medicine so effective then why is the ever elusive cure taking so long to find? In fact, the cures are already there, and suppressed. Folks are waking up to this crime of the century. Read here this article by NaturalNews on the reasons the medical fraternity are not happy with this. EnvirowatchRangitikei
“How the Flexner Report destroyed homeopathy in the United States

(NaturalNews) “Why does Western medicine hate homeopathy? Since the 1800s, conventionally-trained medical doctors have been taught that homeopathy is quackery, even ‘devilish.’ Mind you, these are the same people that thought bloodletting, leeches, mercury and lead were good to “treat” disease conditions…”
