Shocking Flaws in Gardasil Trial Design Prevents Safety Assessment

By Dr. Mercola

To say that the HPV vaccine is controversial would be a serious understatement. A number of experts have spoken out against the vaccine since its release, and studies have revealed serious problems. Children and teenagers have died or been permanently disabled following HPV vaccination, yet it remains on the market.

Story at-a-glance

  • A number of experts have spoken out against the HPV vaccine since its release. An eight-month investigation revealed shocking flaws in Merck’s clinical trial design, which effectively prevented assessment of safety
  • Many of the side effects experienced during the vaccine trial were simply recorded as “medical history,” and were not treated as adverse events; serious adverse events arising outside of a two-week period post-vaccination were marked down as “medical history”
  • More than 80 million girls, young women and boys have received the HPV vaccine, and many have paid an extraordinarily high price, coming down with nervous system disorders, chronic fatigue and autoimmune diseases
  • According to Merck’s own research, if you have been exposed to HPV strains 16 or 18 prior and then get vaccinated, you may increase your risk of precancerous lesions by 44.6 percent
  • HPV infection is spread through sexual contact and research has demonstrated that using condoms can reduce risk of HPV infection by 70 percent, which is far more effective than the HPV vaccine

The Alarming Truths About Genetically Modified Foods

A short (5 minute) video clip providing you with the quintessential info on genetically modified foods that we are already eating due to the failure of the authorities to label. They consider we don’t need to know. If it is so safe please ask yourself why it is they won’t label it? Remember also, the glyphosate that they spray on your GM food has been found by independent scientists to be carcinogenic.  EnvirowatchRangitikei

Great Britain’s Most Outspoken Cardiologist Sets the Record Straight on Saturated Fats

So we’ve all been hammered endlessly about this risk! For at least three decades … or more. Another clue to why we must do our own research into what independent studies are saying … and NOT industry funded studies. If you have not yet woken up to the fact that corporations are about profits not people, and the medical industry was heisted for profit around one century ago, then you’re on a slippery slope. Sound extreme? I once would have thought so but after many thousands of hours of reading and examining the conclusions made by independent health professionals who stand to gain little if anything from their findings … I’ve concluded they are providing us with truth.

Listen to this Doctor speak of his findings … he’s interviewed by Dr Mercola.

By Dr. Mercola

Is saturated fat really the health hazard it’s been made out to be? Dr. Aseem Malhotra is an interventional cardiologist consultant in London, U.K., who gained quite a bit of publicity after the publication of his peer-reviewed editorial1 in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) in 2013.

In it, he seriously challenges the conventional view on saturated fats, and reviews how recent studies have failed to find any significant association between saturated fat and cardiovascular risk.

In fact, Malhotra reports that two-thirds of people admitted to hospitals with acute myocardial infarction have completely normal cholesterol levels. Malhotra, founder of Action on Sugar, also works as an adviser to the U.K.’s National Obesity Forum.

“My focus has been, ‘what can we do as individuals collectively (the medical profession) to help curb demand on the health system?’” he says. “A lot of that is being driven by diet-related diseases.

According to the Lancet Global Burden of Disease Reports, poor diets now contribute to more disease and death than physical activities — smoking and alcohol combined …

As an interventional cardiologist, we can do life-saving procedures with people who have heart attacks through heart surgery. But to be honest, rather than saving them from drowning, I’d rather they wouldn’t be thrown into the river in the first place. This is really where my focus has shifted.

I think for many of us, as clinicians moving more towards intervention, I think the realization that what we can do in medicine is really quite limited at the treatment end and actually the whole ‘prevention is better than cure’ phrase is very true.”

Hospitals and Medical Personnel Are Far From Paragons of Health

Malhotra’s epiphany that something was wrong with the system came rather early. While working as a resident in cardiology, he performed an emergency stenting procedure on a man in his 50s who’d recently suffered a heart attack.

The following morning, Malhotra spoke to the man, giving him the usual advice about quitting smoking and improving his diet.

“Just when I was telling about healthy diet, how important that was, he was actually served burger and fries by the hospital. He said to me, ‘Doctor, how do you expect me to change my lifestyle when you’re serving me the same crap that brought me in here in the first place?’”

Looking around, he realized that a lot of healthcare professionals are overweight or obese, and hospitals serve sick patients junk food. He believes one of the first things that really needs to happen is to set a good example in hospitals.

“The hospital environment should be one that promotes good health, not exacerbates bad health,” he says. His journey began with an email to celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, who did a lot of work campaigning for improved food in school canteens. Malhotra asked Oliver for ideas on how to improve hospital food.

“A couple of years later, I ended up going to the British Medical Association Annual Conference. I put a motion forward saying there should be a policy from the BMA to ban the selling of junk food in hospitals. It got an overwhelming majority vote.”

Diet and lifestyle changes are particularly important in light of the fact that medical errors and properly prescribed medications are the third most common cause of death after heart disease and cancer. Overmedication is a particularly serious problem among the elderly, who tend to suffer more side effects.

“Part of that is because there are very powerful vested interests that push drugs,” Malhotra says. “They even coax academic institutions and guideline bodies. People aren’t getting all the information to make decisions, whether or not they should take medications …

This is a major problem, especially [since] we’ve neglected or detracted from lifestyle changes, which are going to be much more impactful on your health and without side effects.”

The rationale for eliminating fluoride from your diet is well documented – Dr Mercola

Mercola

http://www.mercola.com/ Internationally renowned natural health physician and Mercola.com founder, Dr. Joseph Mercola, answers questions about water filters and fluoride, posed to him by followers on Facebook.

The third leading cause of death – you’ll be very surprised

Thanks to thecontrail.com for this link:

Heart disease is the first cause of death, according to this article from Paul A Phillips at sott.net.  Cancer is the second cause, no surprises there. However the third cause is, believe it or not, medical error! In the U.S. 210,000 people die per year from medical mistakes.

As I regularly point out here, our medical industry if you like, has lost its desire to promote health by prevention as there is more money to be made from chemical, pharmaceutical ‘cures’ … that ultimately treat symptoms not causes. This decline of affairs began back in the early nineteenth century when the Rockefeller fraternity if you like, realized there was big money to be made from pharmaceuticals … and set about destroying natural cures. The powers that be are still in the business of suppressing the same, including dispensing with natural, holistic practitioners.

This is all a huge degeneration from the once practiced Hippocratic oath (see pdf pp 153-155) of Medical Doctors (“…I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure…” a part quote, note) . It is an era when we need more and more to be proactive about our own health. Gone are the days when the family GP was perceived as being up there with God himself. Read, research and protect yourself from medical misadventure. Read the article and particularly watch the video by Dr Mercola who will provide you with all the statistics to prove the veracity of these claims (note the video is also within the article).

Medical deaths and the corruption of healthcare

In the USA alone it has been estimated that at least 210,000 patients died from medical mistakes in a year making this the third leading cause of death while heart disease is the first and cancer comes second.

Can the above figure be used to expose the corruption in medicine?

The reason why it has taken so long to realise that something is not right and why so many still don’t see that anything is going on can be explained like this:

On the whole, people: healthcare workers or patients or the public at large, can regard many circumstances in medicine as isolated cause and effect relationships. In other words, people generally fail to make the connections between the different cause and effect relationships.
