Acupuncture of Benefit to Those With Unexplained Symptoms
Attending frequently with medically unexplained symptoms is distressing for both patient and doctor and effective treatment or management options are limited: one in five patients have symptoms that remain unexplained by conventional medicine. Studies have shown that the cost to the NHS of managing the treatment of a patient with medically unexplained symptoms can be twice that of a patient with a diagnosis.

Moms Who Breastfeed Are More Receptive To Baby's Cries
In a finding that won't surprise many mothers, a new study says breast-feeding may help secure the bond between mother and child. But the study also offers one explanation how: through a change in the mother's brain.
Our food sources are not only being destroyed by radiation (twenty year plus to see the results) and floods (immediate effects), but also GMOs. We are eating the cows and chickens that serve as GMO concentrators. Newborn babies are testing positive for GMOs.
As for taking the time to see if dutchsinse can prove HAARP is responsible for the tornados, I am prognastigating too. What a simple solution, if it can be validated. No more speculation or wild conspiracy theories about what HAARP is up to. Proof positive ring here, tornado arrives on schedule there.
Subject: Re: Two floods Two standards
I have, but have not had a lot of time to dedicate to this one issue.
Don't forget the radiation....
Right now we have our food sources destroyed either by radiation or by flooding, massive destruction of fields that should be planted, tornadoes, and yeah, everyone should leave their gas guzzler at home, that'll solve it.... duh....
And they're pushing MMR shots on people in the UK now due to a measles "outbreak"....

Hypnosis: A Naturally Occurring State of Concentration That Can Help You
What exactly is hypnotherapy? The dictionary defines it simply as a state that resembles sleep but one that is induced by suggestion. Most people are a trifle afraid of putting themselves through this, but the curious might be tempted to try this for adventure. It is, however, used by serious psychotherapists as a way to help people get rid of phobias and fears and surmount mental blocks.
Your Personality Affects Your Level of Attractiveness
Part of what determines how much success you will have in the dating world is whether you have a good sense of whether people find you attractive. A new study, which will be published in an upcoming issue of Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, finds that certain personality traits contribute to being a good judge of whether someone else thinks you're worth meeting again.
Long Warm-Ups May Hinder Performance
Low intensity warm-ups enhance athletic performance and long warm-ups can sabotage it. University of Calgary Faculty of Kinesiology researcher Elias Tomaras says the idea came to him while watching track and field sprinters warm-up for a race.
Today’s question-of-the-day on www.cbc.ca/politics is asking us to vote on the following:

Coffee's Dark Side: Your Favorite Cup of Java May Not Be So Healthful After All
Coffee is one of the most-consumed beverages in the world and its estimated use spans 700 years. However, coffee processing has changed dramatically over the years to help serve the growing demand from the world's population. Consequently, dozens of steps (many harmful) are now involved in the growth of coffee beans and their processing. It's time to recognize the toxicity of conventional coffee beans and insist on organic sources for yourself and your family. Here's why.

Five Reasons To Add Watercress To Your Salad
Hippocrates - who once said "let food be thy medicine" - was known to feed watercress to his patients. With more than 15 essential vitamins and minerals, it is no surprise that the ancient Greeks ensured their soldiers enjoyed watercress before battle. If you compare watercress to other foods by weight, it contains more vitamin C than citrus, more iron than spinach, and more calcium than milk.
Tangerines Fight Obesity and Prevent Against Heart Disease
New research from The University of Western Ontario has discovered a substance in tangerines not only helps to prevent obesity, but also offers protection against type 2 diabetes, and even atherosclerosis, the underlying disease responsible for most heart attacks and strokes.

Women: Caffeine May Reduce Your Ability To Have Children
Caffeine reduces muscle activity in the Fallopian tubes that carry eggs from a woman's ovaries to her womb. "Our experiments were conducted in mice, but this finding goes a long way towards explaining why drinking caffeinated drinks can reduce a woman's chance of becoming pregnant," says Professor Sean Ward from the University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno, USA. Ward's study is published today in the British Journal of Pharmacology.
> OTTAWA - Canada has again been singled out for failing to enforce anti-bribery rules abroad by an international report that points the finger at Prime Minister Stephen Harper's lack of commitment. "Canada is the only G7 country in the little or no enforcement category, and has been in this category since the first edition of this report in 2005," Transparency International said Tuesday. The watchdog group ranks Canada with other laggards such as Bulgaria, Estonia, Greece and Slovenia, but also Australia, New Zealand and Israel.
> Take Care,
As a health activist who has long been aware of the major conflicts of interest within Health Canada and its cohort agencies, I am very gratified at this initiative but want it to go farther into the mess to expose what is really going on. And I'd like to see CBC tell the WHOLE story, not this teensy little piece of it, which is clearly an attempt to make CBC look good.
Health Canada routinely hires professionals out of the pharmaceutical industry. A couple of years ago Bernard Prigent, ex of Pfizer's executive ranks, was hired to head up the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, the granting agency of Health Canada... in other words, he's the guy who decides where the grant money goes. When challenged, Minister Aglukkaq said she couldn't see any conflict of interest; within the health freedom community could be heard a common response of "Whaaaaaaaaat?!!!"
Meanwhile, thousands of effective natural health products have been blacklisted by a bunch of Health Canada "scientists" who have no experience whatever with natural health products and seem to think these things need regulation, despite traditional, harm-free use of these substances, in some cases for thousands of years.
No dead bodies have ever resulted from natural health products, while hundreds of thousands die annually around the world from properly prescribed and used prescription pharmaceutical products. Natural cures for nasty diseases like cancer are ignored, despite research showing their efficacy. Why? Simply because these substances are not patentable, and therefore cannot make the sort of profits the drug companies demand of their investments.
Nothing to do with benefits to Canadians. Nothing to do with anything but money.
After all, a patient cured is a customer lost.

Now Underway, An Outrageous International Land Grab
A massive international land grab is now underway as investors and national governments buy up millions of acres of farmlands in Africa, Asia and Latin America. It amounts to an unprecedented and novel set of enclosures of worldwide land, much of it customary land that rural communities use and manage collectively. Hundreds of millions of rural poor people rely upon the land for their families' food, water and material -- but they don't have formal property rights in the land. Those rights typically belong to the government, which is authorizing the sale of “unowned” lands or "wastelands" to investors, who will then use the land for market-based farming or biofuels production.
The implications for global hunger and poverty are enormous. Instead of commoners having local authority to grow and harvest their own food, they are being thrown off the land so that large multinational corporations and investors can feed their own countries or make a speculative killing on the world land market. A commons is converted into a market, with all the attendant pathologies.
The 2008 financial crisis and the recent round of rising food prices on world markets have spurred much of the interest in buying up arable lands in poor countries. Food-insecure countries figure they should take care of their own future even if it means depriving commoners in poor nations thousands of miles away. So Saudi Arabia is spending $1 billion for 700,000 hectares of land in Africa for rice cultivation. South Korea is buying up 700,000 hectares of African land as well. India is assembling investment pools to buy up farmlands.
These are some of the disturbing facts to be found in Liz Alden Wily’s remarkable report, “The Tragedy of Public Lands: The Fate of the Commons Under Global Commercial Pressure,” released by the International Land Coalition in January 2011.
I met Wily at the International Association for the Study of Commons conference in India shortly after her report was published. She is a political economist from New Zealand who has lived in Africa for years – currently, in Nairobi, Kenya – and studies land tenure systems and governance as an independent consultant.
Wily told me that the current land grab has the markings of an invidious neo-colonialism. This time it is not imperial nations asserting direct military control and exploitation of people and resources; rather, the process now consists of international investors acting in consort with friendly governments via liberalized trade regimes. The state, as the lawful owner of the lands, is often quite willing to help implement the enclosures, expediently seizing “unowned” lands on behalf of the buyers. Governments and well-connected elites can make out quite nicely by brokering the deals and legalizing title to the land.
The whole problem stems from the law's presumptions about what is to be considered property. Under European law, land must be registered and there must be a formal title, among other formalities. But in poor rural regions of Africa, such civil formalities are expensive and difficult to transact. Customary use rights in land are the norm. Conveniently for foreign investors, this facilitates the acquisition of legal title and cheaper prices.
What’s missing is a law protecting the commons – a recognition of rights of community-based governance that can stand up to private or state enclosures.
Sub-Saharan Africa is one of the regions most affected by the international land grab; the problem is especially bad in Democratic Republic of Congo, Northern Sudan, Ethiopia and Madagascar. It is estimated that some 90 percent of the people in sub-Saharan Africa, or some 500 million people, use their lands as a matter of custom, and do not have statutory title to them.
All told, some 2 billion people around the world are estimated to be similarly vulnerable. Some 8.54 billion hectares (or 21.1 billion acres) of rural lands are presumed to be used under customary norms.
While champions of the free market like to tout the efficiency gains that will supposedly come from putting “unused” lands into production, such familiar narratives are self-serving propaganda. As one account on the website Farm Land Grab puts it:
It’s a one-dimensional stereotype that…. ignores [farmers’] intricate knowledge of local resources, the crop varieties they have developed to cope with a wide range of soil and climatic conditions, their complex and resilient agro-ecological family farming systems. It misses the bigger picture, the myriad other crops that the woman [framer] cultivates on a very agro-biodiverse family farm, the valuable trees that she and her family depend on for income, food, fibre, medicine, wood and that the soils depend on for fertility and protection. It perpetuates the false notion that Africa’s family farms are inefficient and non-productive.
The real story here is not about free-market productivity, but rather about dispossession, displacement and the loss of food sovereignty. Much of the investment in land is purely speculative, the result of too much capital roaming the world looking for lucrative returns. As a result, the people who have for decades used common forests, rangelands and farmlands as sources of food and household supplies, are exiled from their own lands: a modern-day enclosure of colossal proportions.
“In light of the fact that most allocations to investors are in the form of renewable medium-term leases of up to 99 years, it may be expected that loss of common properties will remove these lands from meaningful access, use and livelihood benefit for at least one generation and potentially up to four generations,” writes Wily. This is a recipe for decades of famine, poverty and political turmoil.
The whole, sordid trend eerily echoes the English enclosure movement of the 15th to 18th centuries: Investors and national governments collude in the sale of lands, “legally” expelling commoners from lands they have used for generations. International human rights law, indigenous people’s law and simple moral decency may regard the new land enclosures as outrageous offenses. But poor rural communities are not very well equipped to assert their rights before national or international tribunals.
A copy of Liz Alden Wily’s report can be downloaded here as a pdf file. Farm Land Grab is also closely monitoring this odious, little-known enclosure of the commons. Finally, see a report by GRAIN, a small international NGO concerned about farmers’ control over biodiversity and local knowledge: “Seized: The 2008 Land Grab for Food and Security.”

Here is your "second coming", people.... it is more a BEcoming, than a coming... we are to recapture God's Law and live by HIS way, HIS truth, and HIS life.... not to worship religious icons. We cannot follow without knowing where we are going so that if all else fails we will continue on that path, so the real second coming is entirely up to us. It is God within. And it is the true new world order that WE are to impose on this earth.
Take note, too... it has always been the order of the Old Ways... the Red Road... the Ancient Ones... and it is we who strayed from that path, the path did not stray from us.
Anglican Land Mines and the Refugee Jesus:
More Notes from an English Sojourn
By Kevin D. Annett
Two centuries ago, Percy Shelley wrote, “Hell is a place much like London”.
Charlie McVeigh put it another way last week, when I stumbled over the old guy reclined outside Westminster Abbey, undetected somehow by three million closed-circuit TV cameras and marauding bands of cops.
The bedraggled Irish face looked up at me and declared,
“Livin’ here feels like I’m washin’ in shit every day.”
It isn’t just the layers of grime that I have to try cleansing from myself here in London, but some other filth that doesn’t come off.
Martin Luther King’s statute stares down at Charlie McVeigh on those nights he’s allowed to sleep near the Cathedral, ever since the Anglican Church made King a saint of sorts. Ironically, the black man refused to preach in Westminster Abbey during his brief stopover in 1964 to pick up his Nobel Peace Prize in Stockholm. When asked why by incredulous reporters, King said that the church reaped the profits off the torture of millions of colonized people and slaves, and he’d dishonour their memory by stepping foot in a place like Westminster.
I guess the Anglicans forgave King for the slap in their face. He’s dead now, anyway: just like Jesus.
But Christianity aside, business is still good for the Church of England, Incorporated. In 2005 alone, the value of its property and corporate investments jumped by over 800 million pounds: that's well over a billion dollars. But its zest to store up riches on earth received a rather unpleasant jolt the following year, when it was revealed that the Church owned 38% interest in a Belgian company that manufactures anti-personnel land mines.
Church potentates said all the right words, naturally, when their shit came to light. The blood soaked foundations of Westminster, and every other church property, are supposed to be washed clean now by politically correct “corporate divestments”, just like an “apology” is a solution to church-sponsored genocide that spanned centuries. All crimes can be absolved, apparently, by the perpetrators themselves.
I don’t think anybody really believes this, including those who profit from the deception. The first thing that confronts you upon entering Westminster Abbey is a huge money collection box. Christians know the score; they just can’t admit that they do. The booming church bells, the soaring, uplifting organ music, the sanctimonious words and incense, somehow are meant to make it all clean and good – and even necessary.
What they still don’t get, I suppose, is that the lie isn’t necessary at all.
I arrived yesterday in the rural peace of Nottinghamshire, and for a time I wandered joyously near a thousand year old village set among flowering fields and smiling oak trees. The filth and mental fog of London evaporated as I leaned against an ancient wall and suddenly knew the secret that Charlie McVeigh and Jesus whispered to me amidst Empire’s clatter: that the earth, like our soul, is unbounded, and that religion is another false wall built across the unbroken landscape of our soul.
I looked across a perfect valley not marred by fences, and saw in the distance a cluttered town with church spires hovering over sad, cluttered little houses, and a voice spoke to me:
Jesus the Free Man was murdered by Christianity the Corporation, whose symbol, the cross, is actually a property designation of the Roman corporate state: the contained square that carves up and walls off creation from its children.
“Property is a mad illusion erected by selfish imagination on the common treasury given to all men” declared Gerrard Winstanley in 1649, when he and a few friends called the Diggers broke down the fences that rich landlords had illegally erected around the ancient common land of Surrey, England which nobody owned.
“No other creature starves its own kind but man, and in that evil is the fall, for every man is Adam, yet he is Christ as well when the sin of property is extirpated by all things placed in common, thereby honouring the Creator.”
The fences of Corporation and Church have made most of us refugees in a world given equally to every child born. True faith, said Winstanley, is when we knock down all the fences and reclaim the earth for the poorest of the poor, and recover a lost innocence.
For the last to be made first, it’s required that the first become last. Thus says the Bible, and common sense: the knowledge shared by all of us, innately. But we aren’t speaking of class warfare: rather, of reclaiming the common identity that has been stolen from all of us, rich and poor alike.
We are to recover the earth, and our lives, and the law itself, from the corporate oligarchy that have stolen it from us. And to first see clearly, we are to first reclaim our faith, which has also fallen into the hands of the few. And that requires that church corporate institutions be legally and actively dis-established so that the lie can begin to end.
I know this to be true whenever I speak to small groups of Christians, like I did today in Nottingham: men and women who love the words of Jesus and who hate what the church has done to them.
This week, the global corporate media are howling over the failure of a prediction that the world would end on May 21, and of the apparent gullibility of millions of people who expected and even longed for that termination.
As usual, the suits miss the point. For the hope of the end of worlders is strangely reminiscent of what the snug and propertied Christians used to be: people living on the margins who were enemies of Empire and Church, ambassadors from a different reality, looking past a world at war with itself to a far better place.
It all reminds me of something that was said to me once by a man much like Charlie McVeigh: a garbage dump dweller in Mexico City, who refused my offer to him and his family of a few pesos.
The man looked at me simply and said,
“The only thing that will help us is a new world.”
Blessed are the refugees from insanity, for they have become the way.
Tomatoes As Good As Pharmaceuticals For Lowering Blood Pressure

Nice job, Lynda... thank you for telling Gerry Ritz what's what. A few comments you were too nice to say, but I
know they were rolling around in your head when you wrote this.....
So... CFIA assesses the "Raw Data", do they? WHOSE RAW DATA would that be? MONSANTO'S????
RAW DATA FROM A VESTED INTEREST???????? It's certainly not the raw data we have, obviously, or
they would not DARE to foist these toxic frankenfoods on us or their own families!
HOW CAN WE DEPEND ON A PARLIAMENT THAT TAKES THE WRONG ADVICE FROM
PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT ACCOUNTABLE TO US? HOW CAN WE TRUST ADVICE FROM VESTED
WE CANNOT. This is a case of the Ritz puttin' US on... instead of the opposite....
Gerry, we will not tolerate you putting us on. Not you, or anyone else who tries. That's a promise, not a threat.
The RULE OF IGNORANCE IS AT AN END.
Dear Minister Ritz:
I could not disagree with you more on your views that GM seeds are safe. However, I do find your position disquieting when Dr. David Suzuki, an expert in biology and Dr. Mercola (an American physician) who researches this very important issue, and above all Jeffrey Smith who has written many articles and books on the ‘problems’ and ‘health’ issues presented by the consumption “GM” seeds completely disagree with your position of trust in the science.
I don’t doubt that you consider the views of the industry that GM seeds (plants) etc. are safe for consumption by all animals, including us. But Dr. Shiv Chopra has reported (among many others) of the death of cattle in India that were allowed to eat corn plants after harvest as they have traditionally done for year and the cattle DIED. How have you explained that?
Mice won’t eat Canola (GE seed); bees will not go near GE crops (as admitted by a scientist in Minnesota doing research on the mysterious demise of bee population) and many other documented cases where illnesses in animals have been reported as a result of consumption of GE food. How do you respond to that? THAT really concerns me, sir. THAT is what you expect ME to eat and my family. Yours as well. The PM’s kids as well. I am flabbergasted at this trust when the above incidences are just ‘blown’ away in your view into the dust bin. You have never responded to those incidences at all, You have just quoted reports to me in a thick paragraph on the ‘research’ saying GMO’s are safe. Explain the DEAD cows, the mice the bees – then I will reconsider my refusal to accept GMO’s as safe.
That is what I am talking about – not the manipulated research from Monsanto or Du Pont who OWN the seeds and OWN the research and feed you and your staff.
Sir, I am NOT a fly-by-night protestor who is uneducated and a rebel. I want my family to eat healthy so they do not succumb to the increasing numbers of ever younger people developing cancers at alarming rates and obesity. Therefore, GOOD food that I can trust in probably the most basic ‘demand’ that I make on industry to provide – with TRUTH to the claims.
Since I am not convinced as are Drs. Suzuki, Mercola and Chopra that GM food is safe, and I can tell you that THOUSANDS of us are NOT convinced either, then at minimum, we should, as a free society and our rights as Canadians and consumers, have the right to SEE on the LABEL if a product contains GMO’s. If you want to eat it, I give you that right to choose. BUT I too should have the right to say NO – and at minimum have industry comply with that demand that is growing. Just as I can say Yes or No to Organic, I should also have that right with GMO’s because it is NOT natural but a manipulated food.
The continued resistance by the Conservative government to initiate a bill requiring industry to identify what foods contain ‘GM’ ingredients on labels shows me a complete ‘lack’ of support for individual rights and I feel as if I am in a communist country where individuals rights are oppressed by government.
Perhaps that is why I voted for the NDP who support the idea that more information is required on GMO’s and labeling should be required. How refreshing that there is a political party that will respond to the concerns of citizens!
I do hope you reconsider this position of yours that ‘all is well’ with GMO’s due to the research etc. that you have received. I do not feel that ‘herbicide’ resistant food is a good thing – it just seems to be an oxymoron in just saying that. Herbicide resistant – eat.
Thank you kindly for taking the time to respond to my queries though. I do beg to differ and you have NOT convinced me and thousands of others though and sir, that is your job to do – and not by force or refusal to comply with thousands of citizens requests by not identifying the GM content of food. Canadians are too smart to fall for that.

More Physicians and Psychiatrists Prescribing Placebos To Treat Patients
The human mind is very powerful and when we engage that power by combining it with a specific intention it will render the results we seek and so much more. A placebo is nothing more than our belief extended to an outside source for a specific outcome we desire to have or experience. Although it may be uncomfortable talking about it, conventional medicine is starting to realize the full potential of the placebo effect.

Strawberries Show Promise for Cancer Prevention
Modern medicine has always derived the raw materials for pharmaceutical drugs from nature, as nature provides delicate yet powerful ingredients for balance and wellness. Time and time again, be it academic researchers and scientists, or herbalists and medicine men, people discover a simple yet complex compound, found in something so common as a flower or vegetable, that creates the next novel prescription for health. Researchers from Ohio State University conducted a preliminary study which revealed that strawberries may actually prevent and slow cancer from growing in the esophagus.
Openly ranting at Bill Gates, and not caring who hears it:
Okay, now, Bill, you've really pissed me off. Who died and made you God, that you get to dictate to the World Health Organization, which dictates to the rest of us? It wasn't enough you forced most of us into using your unwieldy and flaw-wracked computer operating systems.... now you flog depopulation through vaccinations and think we're not onto you?
Oh yes, we are onto you, Billy Boy... you and all your slimy cohorts who just simply think you've got more right to the planet than the rest of us. You who inject the world with your venomous corporatism, willing most of us dead so that you can maximize what you get out of the place. How arrogant is that, that you think you can choose who lives and who dies? Or do you really think we are your own personal herd?
If you do, prepare for the stampede, pal, because when the people flip out (and they will), they will be coming for the likes of you. Think 1789 France. Think knitting needles and little old ladies cackling, "Guillotine! Guillotine!"
We're onto the language of eugenicists like you, Gates. We read what is below and we see what you are really saying behind the weaseling. Your words are wearing thin now. Your "proofs" are disappearing. The connection between neuromuscular disorders and yes, even autism, and vaccines is now being acknowledged, despite your best efforts to demonize the truth. The truth is out there, the proof is now in public domain. The Andrew Wakefields of the world are, in spite of the corruption and payoffs that bought witnesses and opinions, being vindicated. In spite of you. In your face.
You lying, sanctimonious pig of a man, you who would direct people towards a gas chamber of another era with your poisonous needles... you cannot control the Universe, you cannot stop the Law of Karma, you cannot stop what will come to you.
You have mocked God, and God is not mocked.
If I were a better child of God, I would feel sorry for you. Perhaps one day. But not today.
Please listen to the 10 minute attachment and sign the petition if you value your right of choice. Remember in politics silence is consent. Multi National corporations want to control our lives.
You may not realise how serious this is. I urge you to listen to the video on the link below and get involved.
You may not feel that this affects you, but it will. Herbs are already disappearing, next it will be vitamins, minerals and food supplements, then it will be compulsory antibiotics to all animals, irradiation of all foods killing enzymes and rendering them useless, restriction of seeds and plants stopping you from growing your own healthy foods.

Bill Would Give Justice Department Power to Shutter Piracy Sites Worldwide

Lawmakers introduced legislation Monday that would let the Justice Department seek U.S. court orders against piracy websites anywhere in the world, and shut them down through the sites’ domain registration.

WASHINGTON (AFP) - The White House unveiled a set of policy proposals Monday for international cooperation in ensuring an open and secure Internet.
"Together, we can work together to build a future for cyberspace that is open, interoperable, secure, and reliable," US President Barack Obama wrote in an introduction to the 25-page "International Strategy for Cyberspace."

Comment: The drug companies are doing the testing. The FDA (and Canada's counterpart) rubber stamps them. Placebo washouts are just a perception management deception to lend a little authenticity to the whole scam. Incidentally, perception management is on the curriculum of many major universities.
...'Basically, it works this way. Before a drug company starts to test the effectiveness of a medicine they want to market,'...
Today, I want to alert you to a staggering medical practice in clinical trials of psychiatric drugs.
It's called "placebo washout."
Basically, it works this way. Before a drug company starts to test the effectiveness of a medicine they want to market, they bring together all the volunteers-and they give them a sugar pill.
They tell them, "We're going to give you a sugar pill."
After a ten-day period on these placebos, the researchers weed out the people who improved, got better, feel better. They dump them from the ensuing clinical trial. Bye bye.
Of course, they claim there are good reasons for this washout strategy. But the fact is, eliminating these volunteers from the study makes it more likely that the drug will look good.
I'll explain why this is so in a second. But first, in case you don't believe placebo washout is a real and widespread practice, I'll give you two references out of many: RP Greenberg et al, PMID 857037, PubMed-indexed for Medline; and JG Rabkin et al, "Baseline Characteristics of 10-day placebo washout responders in antidepressant trials," PMID.
It's real. They give everybody a sugar pill, and then they dismiss all those who got better on it.
Then they get down to the clinical trial. They divide the remaining volunteers into two groups. Those that will receive the drug, and those who will be given another placebo.
Of course, nobody is told which group they're going to be in. That's the whole point. Blinding the study enables researchers to compare the number of people who get better on the drug with those who get better on the placebo.
You see, it's common knowledge that some people will get better on anything. That's why they test the two groups. They have to prove the drug is performing better than the sugar pill.
General estimates vary on what percentage of people get better on placebos. 35-45%, some researchers say, is a rule of thumb. Sometimes the % is higher.
But wait! The researchers ALREADY kicked out the people who got better on the sugar pill during the 10-day preliminary washout!
That means they're trying to decrease the beneficial effect of the sugar pill in the clinical trial. Get it? Which means, by comparison, they'll claim the drug performed very well.
The FDA, which approves all drugs for public use, knows this. Researchers know this. Shrinks know this. Drug companies know this. Even some medical reporters know this.
And yet, the practice goes on.
Placebo washout is on the order of saying, "Yes, we tested the new plane and it performs magnificently. Of course, we didn't put it into the air. We rolled it across the runway."
If there are any psychiatrists out there who are reading this, any researchers who want to defend placebo washout, I suggest we set up a radio debate with Dr. Peter Breggin, psychiatrist and author. I'm sure I can arrange it. But I warn you. Buckle up. It'll be a bumpy ride. We will get into the air on this one.
Another public service of No More Fake News.
Placebo washout. Rigging the game. Stacking the deck. The bigger the lie and the more obvious it is, the harder it is to believe that's what's you're looking at. Until you LOOK.
In my 39 years as a reporter, I've come across maybe 100 scandals that could cause a significant sector of the medical cartel to burst into flames and blow away in the wind. This is one of those.
Of course, media, government, and drug corporations make sure such a thing never happens. And when I say media, I'm including publications you'd think would love to watch a really good fire. Turns out they have no stomach for it.

In the USA the American Pediatric Association is fostering a early screening program as well. These organizations orchestrate themselves multi nationally. Obviously they pick the age of three years old because that is the age where the vaccine injuries due to the vaccine burden of over 26 vaccine doses occurs and symptoms are clearly evident.
I recommend you subscribe to this CCHR newsletter to keep up on the dumbing down of a generation.
First vaccinate the pregnant mother with the flu shot with mercury. If you don't kill the fetus (H1N1 flu shot had 25X increase in VAERS reports of abortions and still births...and no alarm bell or publicity about it by the CDC).
That is...one flu shot with mercury in utero; one flu shot at 6 months old (with mercury); one flu shot every year (with mercury) through 18 years old. Add to that 39 vaccine doses of other vaccines by the age of 6 years old. Add to that Ritalin, Adderall to suppress and attempt to mitigate the neurological injuries from the irrational children's mandated program. Add to that -the anti psychotics, anti depressants. Add to that...child bearing women of this generation of drugged victims are having deformed babies.
Every three-year-old child in Australia could have their mental health tested under an early intervention program currently being funded by the Australian government.
Patrick McGorry, an Australian psychiatrist at the University of Melbourne who pushes early intervention programs, has a following in the psychiatric industry who are eager to exploit a large class of potential patients, children as young as three years old whom they can diagnose as "at risk of developing psychosis."
They use an organization called the International Early Psychosis Association to promote early intervention internationally.
Of course, their primary published recommendations for "treatment" are antipsychotics, antidepressants, mood stabilizers, and sedatives.
Since you already know that psychiatric drugs are harmful for adults, what do you think the effects would be on a three-year-old?
What kind of lunacy would screen toddlers for "the potential to develop mental illness later in life" and give them harmful and addictive mind-altering drugs?

Secret Map Shows Massive Radiation Cloud Heading Toward U.S And Canada
Under the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (“1986 Law”), Congress created an administrative forum that gave the program original jurisdiction for all vaccine injury claims. That is you can’t sue the vaccine manufacturer…you must go to this government-administered court instead. Starting in 2002 nearly five thousand families filed petitions with the VICP claiming that vaccines had caused Autism in their children. They were summarily dismissed in one omnibus proceeding. However, they continued to compensate claims that articulated the same symptoms but identified them by different labels, such as encephalopathyand residual seizure disorders.
Are the cases of “autism” that the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) rejected really different from the cases of “encephalopathy” and “residual seizure disorder” that the VICP has compensated before and since? Is it possible the VICP rejected cases of “autism” because of the hot- button label and not because of real differences in injuries or evidence? https://digitalcommons.pace.edu/pelr/vol28/iss2/6/

GOVERNMENT DATA SHOWS CLEAR VACCINE-AUTISM LINK
Vaccine Epidemic Addresses Devastating Unanswered Questions
On Tuesday, May 10th, 2010 at 12:00pm, investigators and families of vaccine-injured children will unveil a report clearly linking vaccine injury and autism. Mary Holland, co-editor of the recently released book Vaccine Epidemic, is the lead author of the study Unanswered Questions from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, published today in the peer-reviewed Pace Environmental Law Review.
For over 20 years, the federal government has publicly denied a vaccine-autism link, while at the same time its Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has been awarding damages for vaccine injury to children with brain damage, seizures, and autism. This investigation, based on public, verifiable government data, breaks new ground in the controversial vaccine-autism debate.
The investigation found that a substantial number of children compensated for vaccine injury also have autism. Based on this preliminary investigation, the evidence suggests that autism is at least three times more prevalent among vaccine-injured children than among children in the general population.
Vaccine Epidemic co-editor Louise Kuo Habakus said, “Parents are fed up with unanswered questions. Congress must investigate what appears to be a cover-up on vaccines and autism. People should read Vaccine Epidemic, because it explains how and why this could have happened and offers proposals for constructive change.”
Vaccine Epidemic, a critique of the U.S. vaccine program that is both thoughtful and passionate, includes chapters explaining the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, the Vaccine Bubble and the Pharmaceutical Industry, the Role of Government and the Media, an overview on vaccine advice books, and more. You can learn more about the newly released report and the book at www.vaccineepidemic.com

An expert at the University of Missouri says the production of sustainable, locally grown foods is key to providing long-term food security for communities.

From: Paul Repstock
Our Prime Minister now has an absolute majority government to work with. Given that this man had no respect for Democratic processes and princples when he suffered a minority position, we will need a miracle to still have a Democratic form of government at the end of those four years. And we may not even have a country called Canada.
How the Canadian people elected such a leader is no mystery. Not one of the political parties offered a leader or a platform which was worthy of a Democracy. Throughout the inter election period the opposition parties stood by and allowed one democratic degradation after another with no more than obligatory noises in parliament. In addition to the failures of our MP's, most Canadians are intensely conservative. There are hardcore 'Big C' Conservatives, there are Liberal conservatives, there are Labour (NDP) conservatives, and even Green conservatives. Given that mindset it was not difficult for a large number of Canadians to cast a 'strategic vote' for the only appearance of strength among the various unsuitable candidates. In the face of a poll climbing act by the NDP, the Liberal conservatives, including the leader, abdicated. Choosing the ‘Canadian Club’ over Democracy. Even I am a type of “conservative”, yearning perhaps for a Canada that never truly existed.
A sufficient number of Canadians have chosen the American mindset of; take my freedom take my country, take my firstborn if you need, just let me keep my second SUV. However, the main issue in this election was the absence of viable candidates to vote for.
Many things have conspired against Canadian Democracy. Our geography and population skew the vote. Successive national leaders have used divide and conquer strategies to concentrate voting power in Ontario. The political party structure over time has developed a non-democratic rigidity whereby candidates must always vote the party line rather than the interests of their particular constituents. The parties have become more powerful than the voters, and no candidate or MP will receive support or funding if he or she is not completely controlled by the party leadership. Even our treasured ethnic diversity has conspired against Democracy, with recent immigrants tending to support the government of the day, Quebec residents and Native groups being lured by promises of special status, and just a general effort by politicians to differentiate vested interest groups and pander to their specific demands. This segregation often does not extend beyond campaign promises, but the seeds of division are sown in this manner.
Canada has not been kind to all people, and the Democracy has not been enjoyed by every citizen. Perhaps the freedoms and independence most Canadians have enjoyed for over a hundred years is archaic in the modern world. However, some people prefer to think that these historic benefits are still relevant. Certainly, decisions to change the fundamental nature of our country should be made on a case by case basis, with every citizen having the opportunity to choose. These decisions exceed the mandate of self appointed omnipotents and corporate interests.
We must attempt to build a new model of governance which will give individual Canadians a better voice in the future of our country. Allowing our Prime Minister to subject us to laws and restrictions demanded by a global elite cannot enhance our self esteem. Assuming that one person has the intellect and integrity to chart the future of our great country is naïve if not insane.
Even considering vaccination is obsolete, to my mind...

Worldwide Public Health Threat: Arsenic In Drinking Water
Helene Kutz Oh just freaking wonderful
Helene Kutz Write a comment...
Jenn Meehleis no wonder we have such high rates of heart disease in the U.S. arsenic contributes to it, chlorine damages your arteries, and our food has lost all of its nutritional value because of GMO crops. There seems to be a pattern here. Do you think our government wants us SICK?!?!?!?! hmmmmmmmmmmm
Erica Kirchner-Dean No I don't think the government wants us to be sick... the government is a machine it doesn't think... but I'd say privatization of health insurance and health care ain't going to fix anything for the majority of us...
Mark Active Government is definitely a machine, but it does have controllers and they do want you in a permanent state of illness.
Agreed, it is those that control the machine that is government that want us sick and diseased. Machines don't last forever...they break down and often need replacement. Some machines are not even replaced because their technology is out...dated and something better exists. Where do you stand on the machine that is government? Replacement or a progression to something better? A nation where we empower ourselves instead of thinking we can be empowered by others. It is our prediction that government as we know it will not exist in the years to come for it is a suppressive form of control on humanity and it will not stand with the rate and evolution of change in mass consciousness.
I don't get it. How does it benefit the government if we are in a permanent state of illness? I can see how this would benefit the pharmaceutical industry but not government. To the extent that the pharmaceutical industry is influencing ...government regarding policy we are in trouble and this is a fascist system. This is what needs to be turned around. Medicine should serve the people and not pad the pockets of the CEO's and investors. Ban advertisements for drugs and let the advertisements consist of the voices of the people who benefit and are harmed by the drugs. Let's hear both sides!
Heidi Mosbeck Keller :(
Having the population sick and diseased does not benefit the government directly, it benefits the controllers who are the corporations. They don't care about government...just their pockets. A sick and diseased population is enslaved and ...easier controlled by those corporations who define policy. A population in a permanent state of illness becomes addicted to the system that put them there in the first place. Loving their master type relationship. The system then feeds of itself until it destructs. It is a system purely based on greed and control and that is why it is falling.
Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil Government does benefit from sick people. They've personally invested in BIG Pharma industry. And our problems are good for the economy. If it wasn't for sick people, we wouldn't need insurance, lawyers, medical doctors, therapists, drugs, etc. Take care of your nervous system and you won't get sick. The nervous system is the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
Erica Kirchner-Dean But companies don't really profit from having sick employees. They cost the company more in sick days, insurance, and lower productivity... I think you are over simplifying. It is not a plot... A lot of companies are supporting employees to lead balanced, healthy lifestyles...at least the good companies are... I do think the ethics of the drug companies is in question.
Erica Kirchner-Dean And you forget preventative services also support our economy. Health clubs, Osteopaths, organic foods, going green, etc. Tons of money to be made here.
PreventDisease.com Workplace health and culture are not the biggest indicators of overall health. Sick days and lower productivity are not a concern for the disease industry. If the drug industry generates $150 for every employee who is sick or ill, that is the primary motive which then also promotes and encourages the insurance industry. Regardless of workplace wellness, most companies can do little to reverse this trend by an effective scale.
It is not your everyday ABC company out there that promotes illness. It is embedded in the culture and our environment between the food we eat, education and the concepts we learn from birth, the programs we watch, the air we breathe, the doctors who prescribe us drugs and vaccines and the mental state of the population as a whole. It is not an over-simplification...it is just the way it is.
Preventative services in the alternative and complementary health industry still do not generate what the drug industry can. But that is changing very quickly as mass consciousness moves to support natural health. That is why you are seeing movement in government to suppress natural health products and remove freedom of choice for supplements. The disease industry knows their time is very limited now, so they've created bills and legislation (such as s510 in the U.S https://www.preventdisease.com/news/10/120110_US_passes_s510.shtml) and C-36 in Canada (https://www.preventdisease.com/news/10/121510_Canada_passes_bill_c-36.shtml) to help restrict health freedom.
We hear stories every week of naturopaths such as Eldon Dahl https://www.preventdisease.com/news/11/032511_tyranny_government_protection.shtml) and many other natural health practitioners and health food stores who are raided because of government tyranny controlled by the pharmaceutical industrial complex.
So we respectfully disagree and do not share your perspective that "it is not a plot". It is a plot to generate more money and keep more people sick and controlled.
On the lighter side, we need them to continue doing this to enlighten those who have not awoken. They are playing the dark role to assist and bring human consciousness to levels we have never seen. Freedom lovers will rejoice in due time as we take back our communities, cities, states and nations back from the hands of corruption. Those corrupted entities such as government will have two choices when this time comes....change or dissolve as there will be no going back to the way things were.

Cynicallia Olexa Yeah, David, let's all be thought police. God forbid I reccomend my mother-in-law add a touch of turmeric to her green tea to give her cancer relief, and throw me in jail if I show her how to kill warts with dandelion milk. Oh, yes, and don't forget to burn me at the stake should I advise her to use cinnamon around the haus instead of ant spray. Praise obumbles for such honorable dedication as ye have!
My thoughts exactly Cynicallia. You have master herbalists and many people all over the world who are very well versed on herbs who are not licensed or registered with any authority. According to David's advice these people should be repor...ted for breaking the law. It's just ridiculous that people still think like this. Trying to regulate and restrict everything on the plane according to some supposed higher authority. Pathetic!See More
PreventDisease.com One will usually lead to the other Terrie, although this one may be like no other in history.
David Collins Waddell Givve your self some bains CY, green tea and tumeric are spices and nor herbs so do not apply
David Collins Waddell READ the Law it Was Written for Herbalists!
Terrie Kenison David, son they will come after you too.
Terrie Kenison Soon
PreventDisease.com Very true. They will eventually come after the "licensed" practitioners in due time and also prevent them from promoting anything of real value that enhances human health. It is inevitable, as this is how the structure of power is controlled.
Givve bains.. first, please, "Cyn" is fine -- I don't expect anyone to get my name right, but "CY" is just not going to cut it. I love your argument, givve myself some bains.. wow. Yes, I use spices, herbs, fruits, seeds, flowers, vegetat...ion, plants, foliage-- Hell, even a bit of shrubbery. Since when do herbalists only use "herbs," and forsake everything that doesn't fit within that flexible name? Why on Earth would ye want to restrict the knowledge and experience of nature's life-saving cures only to "licensed medical herbalists" who can buy the right without proving they understand it? I have a few veins of the old black blood in me (that is to say Rromany, not a disease, but I doubt you would know there is a difference), and I grew up in Nature. I'm not going to pay "the man" for a license to continue with the life I lead. When people ask me for advice, I give it with more caution and consideration than would a person hiding behind her or his prescription pad and team of defense attornies. Let me givve you some bains: Nature ain't your bitch, and she don't like when you touch her with one hand but your fear keeps you holding a beat-down stick in your other hand.See More

Splenda: The Artificial Sweetener that Explodes Internally
Remember when Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice, speaking for the U. S. government, said 'we just did not suspect terrorist would fly commercial jets into buildings' when the U. S. government was conducting 'drills' doing just that on 911?
Now the U. S. government is conducting disaster and emergency drills in the New Madrid fault line area?
Not to be playing Chicken Little 'the sky is falling, the sky is falling', but the wise will stay alert, exchange information and record all media reports immediately after an event before they are 'modified' or censored.
Subject: Be prepared for another "unexpected" (- coincidence??????)
Something is up - It is just not clear exactly how it is going to unfold. But there are far too many “coordinated coincidences” not to realize that yet another segment of “the PLAN” is in the process of becoming ‘reality’.
The New Madrid fault line is where several Fukushima type GE reactors are reported to be located (they ones where they keep tons of spent fuel rods because they do not know what to do with the toxic waste).
In a worst case scenario, what is our government going to say, “oops, we just didn't know this could happen?”.
