Prescription Drugs Now Factor in Higher Percentage of Fatal Car Crashes Than Alcohol or Marijuana

Prescription drugs and multiple drug combinations are frequently found in the blood of drivers involved in fatal car crashes on US roads, according to a new study in Public Health Reports. Drivers today are more likely to test positive for drugs than drivers 20 years ago, and drugged drivers are now likely to be older than 50. Gone are the days when drunk drivers were our only concern—alcohol is but one of MANY drugs that can make you dangerous behind the wheel. And now many people are on multiple drug cocktails, especially prescription drugs, which multiplies their impairment.

Learning When to Refuse Medical Treatment

Doctors today are over-prescribing diagnostic tests and drugs, and patients need to learn how to say "no" to their doctors. This message, surprisingly, is coming from the mainstream media. While this has been a clear message for many years now in the alternative media, that message is now going "mainstream."

How the FDA Deceives You About Mercury Amalgams

57 Percent of Americans Do Not Know Amalgam Contains Mercury! Why exactly is the FDA so opposed to informing the public about the true nature of amalgam? The answer is simple: because the agency has been penetrated through the revolving door that's so common in other industries. Just like Monsanto has penetrated the federal government's regulatory agencies, amalgam profit centers have penetrated and effectively lobbied the FDA to remain complacent on this issue.

The High Risks of Vitamin K Shot for Your Newborn Baby

It has been standard practice in the US and most western countries since 1944 to welcome babies into the world by subjecting them to a variety of medical interventions, one of which is a jab with a syringe full of vitamin K. This injection is routinely done to almost all newborns, unless you, as a parent, refuse to consent. A needle stick can be a terrible assault to a baby's suddenly overloaded sensory system, which is trying to adjust to the outside world. According to Vitamin K expert Dr. Cees Vermeer PhD, vitamin K offered orally is a better option for your infant than injection.

As Painkiller Addiction and Overdoses Continue to Rise, Pharmaceutical Companies Are Sued for Inciting Epidemic

Narcotic painkillers are a driving force in the rise of substance abuse and lethal overdoses. In 2012, 259 million prescriptions for opioids and other narcotic painkillers were written in the US; 46 people die from opioid overdose each and every day. Chicago and two California counties—Orange and Santa Clara—have filed a lawsuit against five drug companies that manufacture OxyContin, charging them with contributing to an epidemic of drug abuse.

Medicine: Idolatry in the Twenty First Century

A honest look at our present day medical system and its relationship to idolatrous religious practices throughout history involving such activities as child sacrifices. Is modern-day medicine the new religion?

Outspoken Vaccine Advocate States Measles Vaccine Can’t Prevent Measles Outbreaks

Longtime MMR vaccine advocate Dr. Gregory Poland now says the measles-containing MMR shot often fails to protect against measles and that recently reported measles outbreaks in highly vaccinated societies occurs primarily among those previously vaccinated. The MMR vaccine is unlikely to eradicate measles globally because even after two doses, nearly 10 percent of children do not have vaccine strain measles antibodies. Most Americans born before 1957 experienced measles and have naturally acquired immunity, which allowed women to pass antibodies on to their babies to protect them from measles during the first year of life. Things have definitely changed in the past 60 years. Because vaccine antibodies are different from naturally acquired measles antibodies, young vaccinated moms today cannot give longer lasting naturally acquired measles antibodies to their newborns. Vaccines simply do not confer the same kind of long lasting immunity that is obtained from experiencing and recovering from the natural disease. The MMR vaccine is not without risk, and doctors seldom warn of these risks. A documented serious side effect of vaccination, including smallpox, rabies, pertussis and MMR vaccine, is encephalitis (inflammation of the brain), which can lead to permanent brain damage. In 2012, the Italian Health Ministry conceded that the MMR vaccine caused autism in a now 11-year-old boy. The judge ruled the boy had "been damaged by irreversible complications due to vaccination (prophylaxis trivalent MMR)." Serious, permanent, and sometimes fatal reactions can and do occur, with more frequency than you might think.

Drug Companies have Grown Fat off of Government Contracts for Prisoners

You will be shocked at the amount of money political campaigns receive from the pharmaceutical industry. As such, more and more money is being spent on drugs for prisoners. Is Big Pharma reaping the rewards of their Election Day investments? Contracts for inmate drugs increased from 3 to 4721 under the Bush administration. Under President Obama, the number of contracts awarded for drugs for federal inmates skyrocketed to 7,767 in 2008. By 2012, The Department of Justice awarded 41,658 contracts to drug federal prisoners totaling $332.5 million. It’s projected that the Affordable Care Act and its resulting Medicaid expansions will put millions more prisoners on psychotropic drugs.

Cover-up Scandal: CDC’s Vaccine Research Exposed as Flawed and Falsified

Just months after U.S. Congressman Bill Posey compared the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s vaccine safety studies to the SEC’s Bernie Madoff scandal, malfeasance in the CDC’s studies of thimerosal-containing vaccines has, for the first time, been documented in peer-reviewed scientific literature. Dr. Boyd Haley, international expert in mercury toxicity and a co-author of the recently published paper said “There is no doubt that authorities in the CDC have initiated and participated in a cover-up of vaccine-induced damage from thimerosal to our children----and this I consider criminal. The paper, "Methodological Issues and Evidence of Malfeasance in Research Purporting to Show Thimerosal in Vaccines is Safe," was published on June 6 and contains eight pages of evidence that the CDC has had knowledge of the vaccine preservative’s neurological risks, yet continues to cover them up.

Chicago Sues 5 Big Pharma Firms for Creating Opioid Painkiller Addicts

This story out of Chicago is news only because it shows the cost municipalities must bear to deal with the increasing prescription drug abuse in treating the addicts of painkillers. The lawsuit itself will not be motivation for pharmaceutical companies to change their ways. They are already the largest criminals in the U.S., having paid out billions of dollars in fines and criminal settlements, all as part of the "cost of doing business." Sidney Wolfe of the British Medical Journal wrote an editorial last year explaining that criminal activities by pharmaceutical companies is increasing, due to insufficient penalties. Deaths due to prescription drug abuse of painkillers now exceeds deaths due to heroin and cocaine combined. Yet pharmaceutical companies remain in business pushing their drugs, while millions of users of "illegal drugs" go to prison each year as a result of the "war on drugs."
