6,370 children killed by puberty-blocking drugs to push transgenderism

Preventable deaths. How sad … sad that this ‘choice’ by many accounts is being pushed on kids. Are the risks of death being explained to the victims? Evidently not. Much like the risks with vaccines. EWR

(Natural News) New data released by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reveals that since the year 2012, more than 40,000 people have suffered adverse reactions from taking the hormone-blocking pharmaceutical Lupron (leuprolide acetate), while at least 6,370 people have died since 2014 from taking the drug.

Commonly prescribed to children who’ve been manipulated into believing that they’re “transgenders” in need of a chemical “sex change,” Lupron has reportedly caused more than 25,500 “serious” reactions in patients just in the last five years, according to the FDA. Many of these adverse reactions appear to have occurred in patients who were prescribed the drug for off-label uses, such as in transgender “therapy.”

While Lupron is clinically approved for use in treating “precocious puberty,” or abnormally early puberty that could cause other health problems, it is not approved for use in children with gender dysphoria. But this is how Lupron is now being widely prescribed, putting the health of children with gender dysphoria at serious risk.

The pediatric version of the drug is also largely mislabeled, as it comes with minimal warnings about long-term side effects, some of which could be irreversible. Such irreversible side effects include permanent damage to the endocrine system, which is responsible for producing the sex hormones that sustain life.

“It’s a serious condition that endocrinologists would normally diagnose and treat because it interferes with development, but in [gender dysphoria] cases they’re inducing this disease state,” says Michael Laidlaw, a Rocklin, California-based endocrinologist, as quoted by the National Catholic Register.

If the FDA really launched a review of Lupron’s safety back in 2017, why has nothing been done two years later?

The FDA has known for at least two years that Lupron isn’t necessarily safe, especially for young children. The agency announced back in 2017 that it was “conducting a specific review of nervous system and psychiatric events in association with the use of GnRH agonists, [a class of drugs] including Lupron, in pediatric patients.”

However, nothing thus far has come out of this alleged inquiry, which first came about as a result of questions that were raised by Kaiser Health News and Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting, including why so many children who are being given Lupron now suffer from persistent seizures.

While transgender activists claim that Lupron and similar such drugs function merely as a “pause button” on life, and are thus completely safe, the data suggests otherwise. By inhibiting the flow of testosterone over the prostate, reducing it to low or undetectable levels, Lupron is a dangerous endocrine disruptor, especially in children.

Since Lupron was designed with prostate cancer in mind, this is what it should be prescribed for in exclusivity – and not for treating psychological conditions like gender dysphoria by depriving children of the hormones they need to live.

“Gender dysphoria is not an endocrine condition, but is a psychological one and should, therefore, be treated with proper psychological care,” Laidlaw is further quoted as saying. “But it becomes an endocrine condition once you start using puberty blockers and giving cross-sex hormones to kids.”

In the United States alone in 2017, prescriptions for Lupron, which is manufactured by drug giant AbbVie, rake in about $669 million for the company annually. And with gender dysphoria on the rise due to rampant transgender indoctrination, that number is likely to skyrocket even more.

Gardasil Vaccine’s Reign of Destruction and Death

Watch, NZ (& all) parents. Remember this recent related post? Vaccination in NZ is not compulsory. You still have the freedom to make your own health decisions:

CHILDREN OF NZ PARENTS WHO HAD DECLINED THE HPV VAX WERE TAKEN ASIDE AT SCHOOL, TOLD THEIR PARENTS DIDN’T LOVE THEM AND COERCED FOR THEIR CONSENT

by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

The Gardasil vaccine scandal once again was the top news topic on Health Impact News for 2018, as it has been for the past several years.

Three of our top 10 stories from 2018 were in the vaccine topic area, with the top 2 news stories dealing with the Gardasil HPV vaccine.

The top story, by far, was the tragic story of 14-year-old Christopher Bunch, originally published at The Vaccine Reaction, who died shortly after receiving a Gardasil vaccine.

The Gardasil vaccine was also the focus of the second most-read article in 2018, where Vera Sharav, from the Alliance for Human Research Protection, reported how public hearings in Japan were exposing the dangers of the vaccine and seeking help for the victims.

Four of our top 10 stories from 2018 were from our MedicalKidnap.com website, documenting how dangerous it is today to disagree with medical doctors who can call in Child Protection Services (CPS) to remove your children simply for disagreeing with their medical advice.

In 2017 the FDA quietly banned powerful life-saving intravenous Vitamin C

Remember the man in the Waikato whose family obtained legal help to make the hospital Doctors administer IV vitamin C? They had refused initially & wanted to switch off his life support as they said there was no hope for him! Fortunately for the man his family’s efforts succeeded although the medics still dragged their feet on it.

In Mike Adam’s words … “…It would be naive to think that the FDA endeavors to protect the public’s health as its primary focus. Indeed, that would be a conflict of interest, as it serves its master, the pharmaceutical industry.” In my opinion NZ is little better. As we’ve learned recently from a retired NZ doctor the MOH bullies our doctors into not testing for 1080 poison (the government’s favourite for eliminating pests whilst distributing it freely into our water & water catchment areas).

Read the article:

(Natural News) It would be naive to think that the FDA endeavors to protect the public’s health as its primary focus. Indeed, that would be a conflict of interest, as it serves its master, the pharmaceutical industry. Has the Food and Drug Administration engineered a shortage of intravenous vitamin C as part of an overall attack on natural and non-toxic approaches to healing that compete with prescription drugs? An analysis by Natural Blaze would suggest that the answer is yes.

Natural Blaze claims that a critical shortage of IV bags in general followed an FDA ban on the mass production of intravenous vitamin C. The FDA limited the availability of IV-C and the pharmaceutical industry halted production of injectable vitamins and minerals, after a 60 minute story about the miraculous recovery of a swine flu patient on life support. Because of the shortage of IV-C, doctors called upon compounding pharmacies to produce it. But the FDA began to limit compounding pharmacies after injectable steroids produced by the New England Compounding Center were contaminated with a fungus that caused a deadly outbreak of meningitis. Here is an example of an entire industry being punished for the dubious practices of one compounding pharmacy.

Try and follow this convoluted story: Doctors began to source NECC for its more expensive product because cheaper generic versions were in short supply. But it was the FDA’s increased inspection of drug factories that disrupted the supply chain in the first place. So the meningitis deaths were in part caused by the onerous actions of the FDA.

COVER-UP: Scientists who find glyphosate herbicide in common foods are silenced or reassigned

(Natural News) Do you know what’s really in the foods you eat? Sure, there’s a list of ingredients on the package, but your food could contain one very toxic substance that isn’t disclosed: glyphosate. You might not be too surprised to find this deadly herbicide ingredient in non-organic fruits and vegetables, but the truth is that it has also made its way into a surprising number of popular foods – and countless unsuspecting people are ingesting this dangerous carcinogen.

The Guardian reports that U.S. government scientists found glyphosate in foods like crackers, cornmeal, and granola cereal. Of course, this information wasn’t publicized; it was uncovered in emails that were obtained through a Freedom of Information request.

For two years, the FDA has been testing food samples for glyphosate residues, but they have yet to release the official results. Nevertheless, one email written by a chemist for the FDA, Richard Thompson, to his colleagues showed how pervasive the problem is.

“I have brought wheat crackers, granola cereal and corn meal from home and there’s a fair amount in all of them,” the Arkansas-based chemist wrote, adding that broccoli was the only food that he happened to have on hand that turned out to be free of glyphosate.

That email was dated in January of 2017. Unfortunately, because he made the discovery while validating his methods of analysis rather than as part of the official checks, the residues are unlikely to make it into any official reports. The FDA’s official findings aren’t usually released until around 2 to 2.5 years after the data is collected.

Meanwhile, FDA chemist Narong Chamkasen discovered levels of glyphosate that exceeded the acceptable levels in corn; the 6.5 parts per million found were well above the legal limit of 5.0 parts per million. Although such levels normally must be reported to the EPA, a supervisor with the FDA informed an EPA official in writing that the corn was not part of an “official sample.” It looks like Americans will never know which corn is going to give them cancer!

In 2016, Chamkasen also found glyphosate in several honey samples, along with oatmeal products. His lab was promptly “reassigned” to other tasks.

Each year, the FDA tests food samples for residues of pesticides to see if any are above the limit. However, they’ve only recently started looking out for glyphosate, despite the fact that it has been used for four decades. In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer labeled the chemical a “probable human carcinogen.”

The flopped GMO Golden Rice of 2 decades ago was approved in 2018 to enter the US food supply

From naturalsociety.com
BY MIKE BARRETT

Two decades ago, genetically modified (GM) golden rice was touted as a way to save the world’s starving children. The hype didn’t last very long, however. It didn’t save any lives, farmers didn’t grow it, and nobody ate it. But in May, golden rice won the approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), with the agency declaring it safe to eat.

Golden rice, one of the oldest GMO crops, initially won high praise because it was engineered to produce vitamin A (beta-carotene), which would help children in poor countries get the required dose of the vitamin. About 250,000 to 500,000 children go blind each year from a lack of the vital nutrient.

Researchers began modifying rice DNA in 2000, and it won overwhelming support from the Rockefeller Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, both of which funded its progress. Even Pope Francis gave the GMO crop his blessing.

The U.S. is the 4th nation to approve golden rice, and more could follow. The U.S. is part of an international body that forms recommendations about food safety that other countries can adopt if they lack their own equivalent of the FDA.

Still, it could be a tough sell for the other 168 countries that chime in about international food standards. Golden rice crops aren’t necessarily field-ready, according to a 2016 Mother Jones report. The plants aren’t as efficient as they could be and don’t yield the crops that regular rice does, so many farmers might see golden rice as a waste of time and money.

And, there’s this…

The news media has been celebrating the FDA’s embrace of golden rice and the fact that more countries could also approve it, still framing golden rice as a savior of sick and dying children. Don’t be fooled.

The Bleeding Edge: behind the terrifying new Netflix documentary

The $400bn medical device industry is exposed in a horrifying look at a string of products that have wreaked havoc on patients

A terrifying new documentary carries a stark warning that a nightmare has been lurking in the medical industry for decades and it might be in your body.

The Bleeding Edge, which premieres on Netflix, examines the $400bn medical device industry responsible for products such as hip implants and robotic surgeons, through the lens of five products that have wreaked havoc on the lives of thousands.

“A wide range of people know about the problems with pharmaceuticals, but very few people know about the medical device industry and the fact that it is even less regulated than pharmaceuticals,” director Kirby Dick told the Guardian. “We felt it was very important that the public, doctors and policymakers know about this because right now medical device companies can get away with just about anything.”

The War on Your Health – a movie from Gary Null

Much of what Gary talks about here in the info is already happening, given this was a 2012 post – things are happening fast, particularly lately.

 

Published on Jul 3, 2012

Progressive Radio Network presents A Gary Null Production WAR ON HEALTH: The FDA’s Cult of Tyranny Introduced by the director (from his speech at the world premiere in New York City, June 15, 2012) In the near future, American medical practice may change dramatically for the worse. No longer will maximal dose natural supplements—vitamins, natural compounds, and scientifically proven medicinal herbs—be available over the counter in local health and grocery stores. Holistic practice, which relies upon non-prescription natural treatments instead of Big Pharma drugs prescribed life-long, will diminish. American healthcare will be imprisoned, patients will be forced to abide by a single medical paradigm defined by corporate drug and food executives and dictated by a government enforcement agency, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This is the bleak scenario if the FDA succeeds in limiting Americans’ options to prevent and treat diseases. ‘War on Health’ is the first documentary detailing and challenging the FDA agenda and its allegiance with the international Codex Alimentarius, which hopes to establish a monolithic food and health regime. Betraying its founding mandate to assure drug, food and chemical safety in the interests of public health, the FDA today is a repressive bureaucracy serving pharmaceutical and agricultural greed and profits. Vaccines, medical devices, prescription drugs are fast tracked at alarming rates through the FDA at the expense of scientific oversight to assure their efficacy and safety. The result is hundreds of thousands premature deaths annually from pharmaceutical drugs, vaccines and medical devices and an epidemic of medical incompetence and fraud sanctioned by federal health officials. Featuring many pioneering American and European attorneys, physicians, medical researchers and advocates of health freedom, War on Health lifts the veil on FDA’s militaristic operations against organic food providers and alternative physicians. The film’s conclusion is perfectly clear: the FDA is a tyrannical cult founded upon the denial of sound medical science with little intention to improve the nation’s health and prevent disease.

Teething Gel Dangers and Safe Alternatives

Story at-a-glance

  • The FDA is warning parents to stop using creams and gels containing the numbing agent benzocaine to calm pain in their teething children, as benzocaine has been linked to a deadly blood disorder
  • The blood disorder, methemoglobinemia, prevents the blood protein hemoglobin from releasing oxygen to tissues, thus resulting in oxygen deprivation to body tissues, including the brain, sometimes resulting in death
  • Although plastic teething rings are popular, they may leach bisphenol-A, an endocrine disrupting agent associated with altered immune function, obesity, diabetes, hyperactivity and more
  • Research reveals teething toys, cuddling and rubbing baby’s gums are the most effective natural means of relieving pain and discomfort associated with teething; the American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend gels and creams as they wash out easily and are quickly swallowed

By Dr. Mercola

Parents are familiar with the cries and discomfort of their teething children. While a normal part of growth and development, some strategies you may consider could have potentially dangerous side effects. No one likes pain, and when an infant is teething, a parent will do just about anything to relieve their discomfort. However, it’s important to realize the potential dangers in reaching for a drug as the first line of defense.

All drugs have potentially serious side effects — even those sold without a prescription and used topically, as opposed to being swallowed. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released a statement calling for manufacturers to pull products containing a popular topical numbing ingredient,1 as years of data have linked it to a dangerous blood disorder.

Benzocaine May Trigger Blood Disorder

In a press release, the FDA warned consumers over-the-counter teething products containing benzocaine may pose a serious risk to infants and children. Benzocaine is a pain reliever contained in many teething products for the temporary relief of sore gums. The FDA is asking manufacturers to voluntarily take products with benzocaine off the market and for companies to stop selling the products.

The FDA has been warning of the potentially deadly side effect for the last decade2 and now warns of legal action should manufacturers not comply. The FDA will also require manufacturers to update their warning labels on prescription local anesthetics for teething children to include the potential risk of methemoglobinemia.3

FDA takes aim at homeopathic remedies: homeopathic products now illegal? (Dr Mercola)

Story at-a-glance

  • In a draft guidance document released by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the agency takes aim at homeopathic remedies
  • In a reversal of a long-standing decision to treat homeopathic remedies differently from other drugs, the FDA has now labeled virtually all of these products as “new drugs” that are “subject to FDA enforcement action at any time”
  • Homeopathic products are now a close to $3 billion industry and such remedies have been shown effective for a variety of ailments, from the flu and allergies to vitiligo

By Dr. Mercola

About 5 million U.S. adults and 1 million U.S. children use homeopathy every year, and the remedies are known to be “generally safe and unlikely to cause severe adverse reactions,” according to the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health.1 Yet, if the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continues on its latest crusade, this natural health modality may soon be much harder to come by.

In a draft guidance document released in December 2017, the FDA takes aim at homeopathic remedies, or as they put it, “drug products labeled as homeopathic.”2,3 In a reversal of a long-standing decision to treat homeopathic remedies differently from other drugs, the FDA has now labeled virtually all of these products as “new drugs” that are “subject to FDA enforcement action at any time.”

FDA Declares Homeopathic Drugs Illegal, Plans to Ramp up Enforcement Actions

While deaths from drugs like opioids are now a public health crisis, homeopathy has maintained a much lower, and presumably safer, profile. Yet, the FDA is using its limited resources to target the latter, citing a need to “protect consumers who choose to use homeopathic products.” Why now? The FDA also cited a “large uptick in products labeled as homeopathic that are being marketed for a wide array of diseases and conditions,” to the extent that homeopathic products are now a close to $3 billion industry.4

Perhaps that’s $3 billion too much for Big Pharma, FDA’s cozy partner in crime. “[I]n one fell swoop, the FDA has declared that virtually every single homeopathic drug on the market is being sold illegally,” the Alliance for Natural Health USA (ANH USA) wrote5 — and it’s not an exaggeration. In essence, the FDA’s guidance reads:6

  1. Any homeopathic drug that has not been considered “generally recognized as safe and effective” (GRAS/E) is considered a new drug
  2. FDA has not determined that any homeopathic drugs are GRAS/E
  3. A new drug cannot be marketed unless it goes through the FDA’s approval process
  4. No homeopathic drugs have gone through FDA approval nor can any producer afford to take them through the approval process

Time for the Truth about Gardasil

Hilary Butler – Saturday, June 05, 2010

What other explanation is there for a comment in Truth About Gardasil’s latest press release which stated: A medical source close to TAG (Truth about Gardasil) has stated: “I find it disturbing that Merck’s agreement with the FDA is based on an agreement that no adverse events will be labeled as such unless there is a TWO fold increase seen of diseases that occur at least as frequently as 1/10,000. This takes away all of the rare autoimmune demyelinating syndromes that cause blindness, paralysis and death.” ?  Maybe they are lying? Nope. I managed to obtain documentation as to the whats and why’s and I’m satisfied that the comment is an accurate report.

Truth About Gardasil also mentioned that since that particular press release, Merck has repeatedly be crawling all over their website like infuriated bees to honey in a famine.

Interesting, isn’t it, that MERCK would have such an agreement with FDA.  Sounds to me like a game of “we pretend to chase you, and you pretend to follow the rules.”  Which in turn, reminds me of the Italian MOB’s relationship with Italian Police.

Interesting too that FDA would set up a meeting with TAG, and there would be silence ever since. One wonders though, what is going on behind the scenes, because the Gardasil bubble just might explode some time soon. Is the silence from FDA and Merck, yet another attempt to come out with another 10 retrospective studies to murky the waters, and placate the masses?

It was interesting that Dr Michael Tatley from CARM would so blithely state in North and South’s rabidly provaccine monologue in June, words to the effect that vaccines couldn’t possible cause the problems that the anti vaccine lobby said, because CARM never saw evidence of it.

So long as doctors continue to deny reactions ever happen, and refuse to report them, you won’t see them, unless parents report them. Many parents are scared to report reactions, because of what their doctors will say. I have quite a few Gardasil reactions which have as yet, not been reported to you, because the parents are not in any space to do so. In terms of the medical profession, no they won’t “see” them, for two reasons. First, they are blind, and if you deny something is happening, you can’t treat it, and if you actually look at it, and see it, you would realise that the medical profession has nothing to treat any of the current Gardasil reactions with anyway. Unless you count in a swathe of girls who’ve never had seizures before, being put on seizure medication any time after the first Gardasil injection.

When are CARM and the MOH going to get real about accurate data collection, huh?!!! Oh, silly me. I forgot. If you don’t have the data, then you can truthfully say that your data shows there are no problems.
