Medical bombshell: Chemotherapy found to spread cancer (from Albert Einstein Coll of Med)

(Natural News) New research conducted at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University has found that chemotherapy spreads cancer throughout the body, causing a sharp increase in cancer cells circulating throughout the body (including the lungs).

A summary of the study reports that “the authors discovered that several types of chemotherapy can increase the amounts of TMEM complexes and circulating tumor cells in the bloodstream.” It concludes that “chemotherapy, despite decreasing tumor size, increases the risk of metastatic dissemination.”

Chemotherapy spreads cancer, generating repeat business for the for-profit cancer industry

In other words, even though chemotherapy “shrinks tumors,” it’s also spreading

Led by Dr. George Karagiannis, the research focused on chemotherapy treatment of breast cancer, but further studies plan to see how chemotherapy might also spread cancers of other tissues, too. The research was published in Science Translational Medicine and is entitled Neoadjuvant chemotherapy induces breast cancer metastasis through a TMEM-mediated mechanism

cancer throughout the body, functioning as a kind of activation for future cancer (that just so happens to generate repeat business for the cancer industry, of course).

30 solid scientific studies that prove vaccines are linked with autism

(NaturalNews) These thirty scientific studies show a link between vaccines and autism, disproving the myth that no official research papers exist to support what alternative doctors have been saying for years.

We have compiled a list of 30 scientific studies that show a link between vaccines and autism, disproving the myth[1] that no official research papers exist to support what alternative doctors have been saying for years.

(Article by Sean Adl-Tabatabai, republished from http://www.trueactivist.com)

These papers can be shown to medical doctors and public health officials who wish to see peer reviewed scientific studies to back up the claims that autism is a direct result from receiving a vaccination[2].

The first research paper presented was the first one ever written on the subject, from 1943. Child Psychiatrist Leo Kanner discovered 11 children over the course of several years who displayed a novel set of neurological symptoms that had never been described in the medical literature, where children were withdrawn, uncommunicative and displayed similar odd behaviors. This disorder would become known as “autism.” In the paper, Dr. Kanner noted that onset of the disorder began following the administration of a small pox vaccine. This paper was published in 1943, and evidence that vaccination causes an ever increasing rate of neurological and immunological regressions, including autism[3], has been mounting from that time until now.

Autistic Disturbances of Affective Contact[4]Leo Kanner, Johns Hopkins University, 1943

“Since 1938, there have come to our attention a number of children whose condition differs so markedly and uniquely from anything reported so far, that each case merits – and, I hope, will eventually receive – at detailed consideration of its fascinating peculiarities.”

All of Kanner’s cases were born after, and began to appear following, the introduction of Eli Lilly’s new form of water-soluble mercury in the late 1920s used as an anti-fungal in forestry, a wood treatment product in the lumber industry and as a disinfectant and anti-bacterial in the medical industry under the name of “Thimerosal” that was included in vaccines[5].

GLAXOSMITHKLINE FLU VACCINE VICTIMS WIN $63 MILLION LAWSUIT, TOTALS $9.1 BILLION PAID OUT SINCE 2003

Still think these people are working for YOU?  Research the flu shot … it’s doesn’t work. Or will you still be lining up to receive their meds? EnvirowatchRangitikei

“If GlaxoSmithKline wasn’t afforded legal and financial government protection status, they would have went under years ago.” 

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is in the news again making headlines after having to settle another major lawsuit bringing the latest total to over $9.1 billion since 2003. This time, it is due to GSK’s product Pandemrix, which was the swine flu vaccine forced upon the public during the now admitted, fake pandemic hoax of 2009. As the victims are being compensated in the U.K., the same neurological mechanisms that damaged the children in the lawsuit are still potentially at work in the confirmed excitotoxicity that takes place after almost every vaccine injection. According to the International Business Times U.K. Edition, each of the victims is “expected to receive £1 million each.” Peter Todd, a lawyer who represented many of the claimants, told the Sunday Times (U.K.): “There has never been a case like this before. The victims of this vaccine have an incurable and lifelong condition and will require extensive medication.” Unfortunately for Peter Todd and the countless other victims, there has been cases like this before. Neurological damage from vaccines is not a rare occurrence. In fact, the U.S. government has paid out $3 billion and counting to families of vaccine-injured children. Most of which were due to direct neurological damage or complications arising from such damage.

According to The Global Research Project, the GlaxoSmithKline rap sheet states, “In recent years, GlaxoSmithKline has become known as the company that pays massive amounts to resolve wide-ranging charges brought by U.S. regulators and prosecutors. These included a $750 million payment relating to the sale of adulterated products from a facility in Puerto Rico and a record $3 billion in connection with charges relating to illegal marketing, suppression of adverse safety research results and overcharging government customers. The company also set a record for the largest tax avoidance settlement with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.

If GlaxoSmithKline wasn’t afforded legal and financial government protection status, they would have went under years ago.

EPA Official Accused of Helping Monsanto ‘Kill’ Cancer Study on That Herbicide Kiwis Spray Everywhere

The Environmental Protection Agency official who was in charge of evaluating the cancer risk of Monsanto Co.’s Roundup allegedly bragged to a company executive that he deserved a medal if he could kill another agency’s investigation into the herbicide’s key chemical.

The boast was made during an April 2015 phone conversation, according to farmers and others who say they’ve been sickened by the weed killer. After leaving his job as a manager in the EPA’s pesticide division last year, Jess Rowland has become a central figure in more than 20 lawsuits in the U.S. accusing the company of failing to warn consumers and regulators of the risk that its glyphosate-based herbicide can cause non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

“If I can kill this I should get a medal,” Rowland told a Monsanto regulatory affairs manager who recounted the conversation in an email to his colleagues, according to a court filing made public Tuesday. The company was seeking Rowland’s help stopping an investigation of glyphosate by a separate office, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, that is part of the U.S. Health and Human Service Department, according to the filing.

A federal judge overseeing the glyphosate litigation in San Francisco said last month he’s inclined to order Rowland to submit to questioning by lawyers for the plaintiffs, who contend he had a “highly suspicious” relationship with Monsanto. Rowland oversaw a committee that found insufficient evidence to conclude glyphosate causes cancer and quit last year shortly after his report was leaked to the press.

Doctors who discovered cancer enzymes in vaccines all found murdered

From awarenessact.com

Several holistic doctors have been found dead, in apparent suicides. The medical community is now speechless due to the timing of their deaths, based on the fact that they were all researchers working on a breakthrough cure for cancer.

Renowned autism specialist, Dr. James Jeffrey Bradstreet, was researching the enzyme prior to his death in July 2015. His body was discovered floating in a North Carolina river with a single gunshot wound to the chest.

Suspicions swirled that the doctor may have been killed as a result of his controversial research. Bradstreet and his colleagues had discovered that the immune system is being compromised by nagalase, which they suspected was being introduced through vaccines.

Dr. Bradstreet was working with a naturally occurring compound that may be the single most effective thing in the immune system for killing cancer cells

Nagalase interferes with an important protein in the body that kills cancer cells, explained Dr. Ted Broer in an interview on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report.

This new breakthrough cure, which you can learn more about in the video below, includes the human protein GcMAF (globulin component macrophage activating factor). GcMAF actually activates macrophages that are already existent inside of the human body, and in turn causes the body to destroy cancer cells.

As the body produces this substance naturally, many cancer patients cannot produce enough necessary to ward off the disease. Thankfully, when administered GcMAF, the immune system can become stronger and can fight cancer by itself, without more invasive treatments like radiation or chemotherapy. The GcMAF website says:

“Your GcMAF empowers your body to cure itself. In a healthy person, your own GcMAF has 11 actions discovered so far, including two on cells, three excellent effects on the brain, and 6 on cancer. Amongst these, it acts as a ‘director’ of your immune system.”

(Please read the description for context of what you are getting, and what to do with it.)

The media, your pediatrician, politicians and health authorities like the CDC and FDA claim that vaccines are safe and effective. So why do hundreds of peer-reviewed studies indicate the opposite is true? Read, download, and share this document widely to provide the necessary evidence-based counterbalance to the pro-vaccination propaganda that has globally infected popular consciousness and discussion like an intractable disease. 

It is abundantly clear that if the present-day vaccine climate, namely, that everyone must comply with the CDC’s one-size-fits-all vaccination schedule or be labeled a health risk to society at large, is to succumb to open and balanced discussion, it is the peer-reviewed biomedical evidence itself that is going to pave the way towards making rational debate on the subject happen.

With this aim in mind, GreenMedInfo.com has painstakingly collected over 300 pages of study abstracts culled directly from the National Library of Medicine’s pubmed.gov bibliographic database on the wide-ranging adverse health effects linked to vaccines in the today’s schedule (over 200 distinct adverse effects, including death), as well as numerous studies related to vaccine contamination, and vaccine failure in highly vaccine compliant populations.

This is the literature that the media, politicians and governmental health organizations like the CDC, pretend with abject dishonesty does not exist – as if vaccine injury did not happen, despite the over 3 billion dollars our government has paid out to vaccine injured through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund since it was inaugurated in 1986.

We have written extensively about this research previously, highlighting different studies, focusing on translating their implications to the lay persons (view our vaccine article section here), but we believe that collecting and condensing solely the primary literature itself makes a much more powerful statement.

This document is being made free to download to the world at large in order to encourage the lay public, health professionals, activists, and elected officials alike to read, acknowledge and share the voluminous literature with their family, friends, colleagues and related stakeholders. You will find this research undermines the national and global agenda to continue to expand the vaccine schedule (on behalf of a vaccine industry that is indemnified against lawsuit for defective or harmful products), with increasing legislative pressure to remove exemptions and mandate them against the evidence of harm and at best equivocal effectiveness as a preventive health measure.

If the vaccination arm of modern medicine today is to continue to promote itself as a science- and evidence-based practice, it must acknowledge and incorporate the implications of the research we are releasing here, or lose any pretense at credibility. Failing to do so will reveal that the widespread push to remove your choice in the matter is agenda and not evidence driven, and due to the fact that vaccines all  carry the risk of irreversible harm and even death (any vaccine insert proves this), it clearly violates the Nuremberg code of medical ethics to promote them as a priori safe and effectiveness….

Pharmaceutical giant Novartis has a new flu vaccine with Gulf War Syndrome adjuvant that triggers horrific side effects

(NaturalHealth365) Pharmaceutical giant Novartis has just rolled out a new flu vaccine, FLUAD, intended for Americans age 65 and over. And the vaccine, developed for the 2016-2017 flu season, contains a nasty surprise – squalene, the substance many say is responsible for triggering Gulf war syndrome. {Even military personnel are speaking out about what really causes Gulf war syndrome}

doctor-673578_1280.jpg
Squalene was an adjuvant used in vaccinating Gulf War servicemen leading to Gulf War Syndrome

Gulf war syndrome, which affects returning military veterans of the Persian Gulf War, is a cascade of conditions and symptoms including fatigue, muscle pain, cognitive problems, rashes, night sweats, and other ills. Research scientist Dr. Vera Scheibner maintains that lupus, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and other life-threatening diseases can also result.

Over 250,000 of the 697,000 US veterans who served in the Persian Gulf are afflicted with the condition.

Gulf war syndrome linked to a toxic vaccine ingredient

Squalene was used as an adjuvant in compulsory anthrax vaccinations given to servicemen during the Gulf War. Adjuvants are substances added to vaccines to create a stronger immune response to the vaccine. The anthrax vaccines used an oil-in-water emulsion of squalene known as MF59.

Bully Monsanto attacks scientists who link Glyphosate and cancer

tractor-164360_1280

From thehill.com

Don’t mess with Monsanto Co. That is the message being delivered right now by the agrichemical industry as it makes a full fledged assault on the team of international cancer scientists who dared to declare cancerous connections to the widely used herbicide called glyphosate, the chief ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup brand.

Industry swagger is on full display in Washington where Monsanto and its friends at CropLife America are driving efforts to cut off U.S. funding for the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) after IARC scientists declared glyphosate a probable human carcinogen in March 2015.  The industry is also demanding that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fully repudiate the IARC classification and green-light continued use of glyphosate herbicides, which spell billions of dollars in sales annually to Monsanto and the agrichemical brethren.

The EPA has been evaluating glyphosate as part of a re-registration review process for more than five years, and was initially expected to complete that review last year.The EPA then said it would complete the review by the end of 2016, and now says it will be 2017 before it offers a final report.

Remember those rats in the header image were fed for two years on very diluted Roundup plus GE corn which is laced with Roundup being sprayed on it during its growing time. Yes this supposedly harmless herbicide is IN your GE food which of course isn’t labeled because they consider you don’t need to know, it being so safe.

DOCUMENTS REVEAL SUGAR INDUSTRY PAID OFF SCIENTISTS, SHAPING MASS PERCEPTION OF NUTRITION FOR MONEY

The deviousness of corporate greed knows no end. Check out what the sugar industry has been up to, leading us all down the garden path with our health. As always follow the money. Sugar is evil at best in my opinion. It has been traced to many a health problem particularly cancer. Educate yourself and protect your immune system naturally. I should mention, don’t rely on mainstream media to give you the data on independent research. Go to the research of those who had nothing to gain from their results in terms of money. There you will be more likely to find truth. EnvirowatchRangitikei

Collective Evolution

According to newly uncovered documents, in the 1960s the sugar industry began funding research to cast doubt on sugar’s role in heart disease, mainly by pointing the finger at fat instead.

A recently published analysis based on correspondence between a sugar trade group and researchers from Harvard University clearly demonstrates how food and beverage makers actively shape the public’s understanding of nutrition for their own financial gain.

The Evidence

In 1964 a group known as The Sugar Association went over a campaign to address any “negative attitudes toward sugar” after studies linking sugar with heart disease began to emerge, according to documents that were dug up from the now public archives. The following year the group approved a project called “Project 226,” which involved paying researchers from Harvard the equivalent of todays $48,900 USD for an article reviewing scientific literature, supplying the materials they wanted reviewed and reviewing drafts of the article prior to publication.

The result was an article, published in 1967, which concluded there was “no doubt” that reducing cholesterol and saturated fat was the only dietary guideline necessary to prevent heart disease effectively. The consistency of the literature on fat and cholesterol were overstated by researchers, and studies on sugar were severely downplayed, according to the analysis.

The Possible Health Risks of 1080 Exposure: Two NZ Women blame a 1080 drop for their lingering illness

table-165692_1280“A year after 1080 poison rained from the sky as Reefton sisters were enjoying a picnic near Kokiri, both are still experiencing ill health and have lodged a claim with ACC.”
NZ Herald

 

coromandel.png
Following 1080 drops people have observed pellets on public walkways and seating

Liver, throat & thyroid problems, weight loss, a thinner optical nerve and ongoing nausea are just some of the health effects these women are experiencing.

Still the authorities minimize the risks with this poison. Some NZ Midwives back in 2008 were warning women to leave town prior to a 1080 drop saying, “Nobody can guarantee this substance does not cross the placental barrier.”  It is known from research that 1080 has caused deformities in animal fetuses. Not something any mother would want to risk surely, and yet we are seldom told these things. Instead we are told there is no proven link between 1080 and the said health problems. We have the same scenario with glyphosate, a commonly used herbicide ingredient that independent research indicates it is carcinogenic. As a consequence, instead of erring on the side of caution as any ounce of common sense would indicate as the prudent course of action, the powers that be insist it is all ka pai. No worries. Carry on as usual. This is the way of corporations and maximizing profits… EnvirowatchRangitikei

Chiropractor Witnesses Normal Children Be Injured By Vaccines and Vaccination

Chiropractor Witnesses Normal Children Be Injured By Vaccines

Dr. Greg Cartmell, DC has been a practicing Chiropractor for over 20 years and has witnessed patients of his go from normal to vaccine injured after routine vaccination. In his video interview he shares the story of a child who was normal, engaged and healthy and then after vaccination was diagnosed with Autism. He suggests that all parents thoroughly research the dangers and efficacy of vaccination before deciding whether or not to vaccinate.

TRANSCRIPT

As a chiropractor, one of the greatest professions in the world I think, I have been practicing for close to 20 years now. Just recently, I’d been more aware of the vaccination controversies going on and been more aware clinically about what I’ve seen. It’s frightening to me. As a clinician, on a day-to-day basis, I educate my patients on health and maintaining health and preventative health and to be clear with families and be clear with the parents in making informed choices about vaccinating their children. It’s very important to me. I’ve seen some tragedies, I’ve seen before and afters. About 6 years ago, I had a patient come in with her daughter who was just vibrant, bouncing off the walls, perhaps 2 at the time, and just very sweet and loving and accepting my adjustments, the whole family. She received her boosters. I hadn’t seen them in about 6 months, and she had developed autism, full blown autism to where she had to go to a speech therapist. She was afraid of me; whereas, before, she was very smiling and calm and bright and talkative, and she was afraid of me. It was disheartening, to say the least. It was almost as if the light switch had flipped off on her.

I told her mom, I said, “I would like to continue to still adjust you, adjust your child and see if we can make some progress with her.” It was just almost too hard to have her contained on the table, but we did. After I adjusted her upper cervical area, it seemed like it gave her some, whatever, a relief and it calmed her down a little bit. Then I hadn’t seen them in a while and we tried again. They came in about a year later and we tried again. It was just too much for her to contain her child in the office. Unfortunately, they never returned with her. Just recently, I had a little boy come in, working on his neck area, he’s clicking and popping in his neck and jaw. Again, maybe 6 years old, 6 or 7, came in, I started working on him. He was very responsive, loved the chiropractic. He came in one day with his folks because his folks were getting adjusted as well, and he seemed off. He seemed like he was staring off into space, comatose. They had to explain that he just came from the pediatrician and gotten a booster shot.

It was clear that something had taken place. It was just hard to describe other than just comatose. He seemed to snap out of it as I was adjusting his parents. I asked him what had happened and, “Oh, he’d gotten his booster shot and he’s okay now.” It was just very, very hard to believe the difference in these children, and it’s disheartening. If you’re a parent, I strongly urge you to please do your research. Look atboth sides. I urge you to look at vaccination injury and the stats on that and look into the ingredients and look into the reasons why they think they need to do a vaccination schedule as they propose.

Modern Medicine’s cure rate for cancer is only 3%

Written by Webster Kehr, Independent Cancer Research Foundation, Inc.

“According to an oncology journal, the overall five-year cure rate of medical doctors (i.e. oncologists), on newly diagnosed cancer patients, is 3% (Clinical Oncology (2004) 16: 549-560).

Let me say this another way: in five years after diagnosis, 97% of the cancer patients of the medical community are dead.

You probably think that this “cure rate” is excellent because cancer is such a mysterious disease and it is so hard to cure. You have been told that DNA damage is what causes cancer and that it will be 50 years before a cure for cancer will be found.

The truth is that the 3% cure rate is inexcusable. If you can safely target and kill cancer cells, what difference does it make that cancer cells have DNA damage!! Killing sick cells should be easy, even if they have DNA damage.

Is there proof that someone has had a cure rate higher than 3%?

Dr. William D. Kelley, a cancer researcher, worked with more than 33,000 cancer patients and his five-year cure rate on newly diagnosed cancer patients was about 90%, not 3%.”

Rangitikei Mail reports on Rangitikei District Council’s Spraying decision

Spraying Decision Dismays

By Caroline Brown

A Marton resident says she is disappointed with the council’s decision to continue using a chemical-based herbicide for weed control.

Pam Vernon claims the council has side-stepped health concerns about the main active ingredient of Roundup – glyphosate – and instead focused on cost.

The Rangitikei District Council voted on March 26 to maintain existing methods of weed control and to formally establish no-spray lists. Residents choosing to be on the no-spray list would be responsible for the upkeep of the land.  The council contracts the spraying of urban areas to Fulton Hogan.

The council requested a report on alternative methods to chemical spraying for weeds after Vernon raised her concerns around the safety of current methods in a presentation at the end of last year.

Non-chemical sprays, pastes, gas burning and hot water treatment were investigated in the report as alternative options for the treatment of weeds. The council report indicated that cost was a prohibitive factor to many alternative methods.

At the meeting Cr Cath Ash questioned the report’s indication that hot water treatments were 15 times more expensive than herbicide and suggested the council contact some providers for quotes. Ash said the council had an obligation to consider alternative methods to chemical spraying in light of research by the University of Canterbury into the risks of glyphosate and the World Health Organisation suggesting glyphosate was a potential carcinogen.

Vernon said she also had issue with the report’s conclusion on the cost of hot water treatment. She said she had contacted a provider and was told that while at the moment it would be about 10 to 15 per cent more expensive by the end of this year it would be cost comparable.

Vernon said she decided to make a presentation to the council last year after ongoing issues with spraying around her property. She said it was good to finally have a formal no-spray register, however she did not think it went far enough.

“I believe the council are not really interested in finding another option.”

Mayor Andy Watson was not available for comment but in a statement endorsed the council’s decision based on the commissioned report.
