Prescription Painkiller Drugs Kill More People Than Murders or Car Accidents in the US
Deaths caused by overdosing on painkillers now surpass murders and fatal car accidents in the US. America’s rising drug problem recently received renewed attention following the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman.
The 46-year-old Oscar-winning actor died from a heroin overdose on February 2. Last year, Hoffman entered rehab when addiction to prescription painkillers led him to switch to heroin. US officials now acknowledge that narcotic painkillers are in fact a driving force in the rise of substance abuse and lethal overdoses.
Study: Taking Your Child to a Pediatrician Increases Flu Risk – Doctors are a Health Risk for Children
A new study published in the March issue of Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology shows that routine well-child visits to pediatricians actually increase a child’s chance for catching the flu within two weeks.
This confirms what many parents have already discovered, that well-child visits are counterproductive, and usually a primary method of distributing vaccines.
Renowned pediatrician Dr. Robert Mendelsohn wrote about this phenomenon years ago in his best-selling book, How to Raise a Healthy Child In Spite of Your Doctor. He has a whole chapter devoted to this topic: How Doctors Can Make Healthy Kids Sick.
The study conducted by researchers at the University of Iowa was based on a large data sampling of over 84,000 families. They concluded that well-child doctor appointments for annual exams and vaccinations carry a risk that translates to more than 700,000 avoidable cases of flu-like illnesses each year.
Dr. Lisa Saiman wrote in the commentary that the true effects are quite likely much larger, since the study only looked at actual records visits to doctors or hospitals, and therefore would not include those who got the flu but never went in for a doctor exam. So the well-child visit could easily be causing over 1 million cases of the flu each year.
The only statement made by the lead author, Dr. Phil Polgreen, that seemed to have no corresponding data referenced, was this statement: “Well child visits are critically important.”
Important for whom? The financial health of the medical system and its sales of childhood vaccines?
Gardasil: Ashlie’s Near-Death Experience
Who would have ever thought a single injection of the HPV vaccine, Gardasil, could bring my precious daughter to the brink of death?
Ashlie has always been bigger than life. A girl who we know can handle anything. At the age of 4, Ashlie decided she wanted to dance. She was shy and didn’t like people staring at her, so we knew that this little endeavor would be short lived. We could not have been more wrong. As Ashlie became older, we knew she had found her passion and career in life. She was going to be a professional dancer and she was on her way.
In the middle of June 2009, Ashlie received her first and only Gardasil vaccine and approximately 16 days later she began to complain that her legs were not working correctly. The next morning, I came downstairs and Ashlie was lying on the couch watching TV. She told me that she had crawled from her room and down the stairs to get to the couch. She informed me she could not walk. I asked her to stand. She tried and fell to the floor. How could we have known one vaccine would change our lives and her life so drastically?
5 Families Sue Big Pharma in France for Vaccine Damages to Children
Here is a story that originates from the French media about 5 families with vaccine-damaged children suing the drug manufacturers for vaccine damages.
The parents of the five families who contend that vaccines caused their children’s disabilities have joined forces to take GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer and Sanofi to court in hopes that the courts will acknowledge the side effects of vaccines and award compensation to their disabled children.
You will not, of course, ever read a story like this in the U.S. mainstream press for the simple reason that families cannot sue drug manufacturers for damages due to vaccines – it is against the law. There were so many lawsuits due to vaccine damages and deaths in the 1980s, that Big Pharma blackmailed Congress by threatening to get out of the vaccine business (which is exactly what should have happened if there were truly a free market in the U.S. where failed products and companies were allowed to fail) unless they were given legal protection from ALL lawsuits.
So Congress gave Big Pharma total legal immunity to any harm due to vaccines back in 1986, and the U.S. Supreme Court upheld that law in 2011. Instead, the U.S. law has set up a special “vaccine court” funded by taxes consumers pay on the vaccines. The U.S. Government has attorneys that fight on behalf of the government not to pay damages for vaccine injuries and death. But they have paid out millions of dollars in damages nevertheless, even though the mainstream media seldom reports this.
Beta-Blockers Killed 800,000 in 5 Years: “Good Medicine” or Mass Murder?
Most people assume that scientific integrity is somehow assured; that there are safeguards along the way, preventing fraudulent research from harming patients.
Unfortunately, scientific misconduct has become a very serious and widespread problem that threatens the entire paradigm of science-based medicine—unless changes are made.
Again and again, papers assessing the prevalence of scientific fraud and/or the impact this is having shows that the situation is dire and getting worse. In short, we have lost scientific integrity, and without it, “science-based medicine” is just a term without substance.
Conflict of interest is another pervasive problem within the research field, and the featured article highlights a case that contains both.
Beta-blockers are drugs commonly used in the treatment of high blood pressure and congestive heart failure. They work primarily by blocking the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and epinephrine (adrenaline) from binding to beta receptors, thereby dilating blood vessels, which reduces your heart rate and blood pressure.
Until recently, the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) also recommended using beta-blockers in patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery.
A recent article in Forbes Magazine highlights how medical guidelines based on questionable science may have resulted in the death of hundreds of thousands of patients in just a few years:
“Last summer, British researchers provoked concern when they published a paper raising the possibility that by following an established guideline UK doctors may have caused as many as 10,000 deaths each year,” Larry Husten, editorial director of WebMD professional news, writes.
Now, they have gone a step further and published an estimate that the same guideline may have led to the deaths of as many as 800,000 people in Europe over the last five years…
The 800,000 deaths are comparable in size to the worst cases of genocide and mass murder in recent history.”
With so Many Vaccine Injuries, Why does the Government Claim that Vaccines are “Safe and Effective”?
The fact that vaccines are dangerous is something that should never be disputed, as the data is overwhelming and the U.S. government concedes cases of vaccine injuries and deaths every year in vaccine court. We have published these statistics at Health Impact News.
Since drug manufacturers have complete legal immunity in the U.S. from any damages or deaths due to vaccines, the true cases of vaccine damages almost never make it into the mainstream media. When someone dares to publish a true story of vaccine damage, as Katie Couric did last December when she interviewed families who were injured or suffered death due to the Gardasil vaccine, they are immediately vilified for daring to oppose the general consensus of the medical community. In the case of Couric, she came out and apologized and had to bring on the government Assistant Surgeon General to give the standard view that vaccines are safe.
In this excellent article by Markus Heinze, he explains how the pharmaceutical companies are able to continue getting approval to put more dangerous vaccines in the market by showing their own studies that supposedly are proving they are “safe and effective” are not even tested against true placebos. This is basic scientific information that the mainstream media has no interest in covering, so read it here and learn.
Flu Shot for Pregnant Women? CDC Covers Up Influenza Vaccine-Related Fetal Deaths
CDC Misleads Nations Ob/Gyns -Covering-up The Most Massive Fetal Death Reports Associated With The Influenza Vaccine in the History of Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS)
Dr. Gary Goldman’s study on the 4,250% spike in fetal death reports during the 2009/10 H1N1 “pandemic” was originally rejected by the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology (AJOG), who is charged by the National Coalition of Organized Women (NCOW) as complicit in a massive cover-up and manipulation of data associated with the 2009/10 flu season fetal deaths. This report is now available free to the public. Subsequently published in the Human & Experimental Toxicology Journal (HET), as a Sage choice study, the Goldman study is now listed in Pub med as a free PMC article.
Despite an apparent trail of documented collusion and misconduct amongst the CDC, AJOG (Elsevier) and 9 non-profits including the March of Dimes, this alarmingly poor outcome of the 2009/10 H1N1 vaccine experiment on the fetuses of pregnant women was successfully covered up by the CDC until Goldman exposed the statistics, documenting the harm in his recent publication.
Dr. Marie McCormick, chairperson of the CDC’s H1N1 Vaccine Safety Risk and Assessment Working Group (VSRAWG) testified, and submitted deceptive reports to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), contending no unusual signals nor adverse outcomes in the pregnant population during the 2009/10 public experiments on pregnant women.
However, pressed by the NCOW statistics extracted from the government’s own data, Dr. Shimabukuro of the Centers of Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) corroborated the NCOW data in a public presentation (slide 20) in Atlanta, Georgia, in October of 2010. This contradiction to Dr.McCormick’s testimony evidences that the CDC indeed knew of the increasing level in fetal-loss reports, in near real time. Yet the CDC failed to immediately notify the nation’s Ob/Gyns, who, uninformed, continued to double-dose their pregnant patients with the fetal-fatal flu shots that collectively delivered up to 50 micrograms of mercury. Due to the success of this well-orchestrated cover up and the complicity of the non-profits and AJOG, pregnant women are now pressured to get 4 vaccine doses, (Flu, TDaP) and thereafter are mandated to give up to 49 vaccine doses to their surviving children in order for them to attend school.
Ambien Becoming Better Known for Triggering Murders and other Bizarre Behavior than it is for Treating Insomnia
On March 29, 2009, Robert Stewart, 45, stormed into the Pinelake Health and Rehab nursing home in Carthage, North Carolina and opened fire, killing eight people and wounding two. Stewart’s apparent target was his estranged wife, who worked as a nurse in the home. She hid in a bathroom and was unharmed. Stewart was charged with eight counts of first-degree murder; if convicted, he could face the death penalty. Even though there was evidence that Stewart’s actions were premeditated (he allegedly had a target), Stewart’s defense team successfully argued that since he was under the influence of Ambien, a sleep aid, at the time of the shooting, he was not in control of his actions. Instead of the charges sought by the prosecutors, Stewart was convicted on eight counts of second-degree murder.
The Ambien defense was also used in the case of Julie Ann Bronson, a 45-year-old flight attendant from Texas. In April of 2009, Bronson took a couple of Ambien to help her sleep. She had been drinking wine earlier in the day, and went to bed early. She awoke the following morning in jail, still in her pajamas, barefoot and terrified. When she was told that she had run over three people, including an 18-month-old girl who suffered severe brain damage as a result of the wreck, she was horrified. “It was surreal. It was like a bad dream.” In May of 2012, Bronson pleaded guilty to the felonies of intoxication assault and failure to stop and render aid. “I did the crime but I never intended to do it,” she testified. “I wouldn’t hurt a flea. And if I would have hit somebody, I would have stopped and helped. We’re trained in CPR.” Bronson faced ten years, but because of the Ambien defense, she will serve six months in prison and have ten years of probation
Ironically, you are more likely to be successful using the Ambien defense if you injure or kill someone than if you just crash into a parked car or a tree.
Legal Drug Addiction a far Greater Problem than Illegal Drug Addiction
Prescription drug overdoses now kill more people than cocaine and heroin combined. There were four times more deaths among women from prescription painkiller overdose than for cocaine and heroin deaths combined in 2010.
The face of drug addiction in the US and around the globe is changing. You can certainly not gauge who is an addict by looks or occupation. In fact, painkiller addiction spans all ages and walks of life.
Gardasil Changed my Health, my Life, and Family’s Lives Forever
Gardasil changed my health, my life, and family’s lives forever; physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially.
We have had to educate ourselves about health in ways we never did before. I have a humbled appreciation to be alive after how ill I was nearly three years ago. We have learned to educate, read, and research what we put into our bodies.
We encourage everyone we know to do their own research on everything that is put into their body, especially through injection. The HPV vaccine adverse reactions will not stop until these vaccines do.
What I can give and share with others through this experience is the truth, my experiences, and the real facts and statistics regarding Gardasil. I plan to do this until this vaccine exists no more.
