In earlier times it was easier to control a million people than physically to kill a million people. Today it is infinitely easier to kill a million people then to control a million people. - Zbigniew Brzezinski (Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, Carter/Obama Advisor).
The cancer epidemic is a soft-kill operation and a move by the world’s so-called elites to cull the human population. It is well documented that the Club of Rome, Bill Gates, Ted Turner, the Rockefellers, Warren Buffet and many other globalists plan to dominate and decimate humanity with their population reduction agenda.
As we will see, the globalists first cause the cancer and then provide us with their ineffective treatments (not cures) for profit. This method is known as Problem – Reaction – Solution.
According to the American Cancer Society, 1,638,910 new cancer cases will arise in the United States during 2012. Approximately 577,190 American cancer patients are expected to die from their cancer this year as well. One in every two men will suffer from cancer (one in four will die) as will one in every three women (one in five will die). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cancer is the second leading cause of death, closely trailing heart disease.
In 1971, President Nixon and Congress declared war on cancer. Since then, the federal government has spent well over $105 billion to battle cancer. In 2010 alone, the National Cancer Institute had a budget of $6.4 billion. As of March 2011, the Susan B. Komen Foundation, allegedly leading the fight against breast cancer, had $439,451,449 in “total public support and revenue.” Pharmaceutical giant Merck alone had a 2010 research and development budget of 8.12 billion.
Why all the death and suffering despite billions, if not trillions, in government and private cancer research? Why have cancer treatments remained almost unchanged since the 1950s: toxic radiation, toxic chemotherapy, and surgery?
The answer is simple: treating cancer is profitable; curing it is not. Cancer also furthers the globalist goal of massive depopulation.

[NaturalNews] We live in a world full of drugs whose primary objective is to relieve symptoms instead of heal. Most of these drugs come with side effects, some of which may be quite dangerous. That is especially true when it comes to drugs prescribed for the elderly who are the largest consumers of prescription and over the counter drugs.
When waiting to see a doctor, it is common to share the waiting room with prescription drug salespeople with suitcases full of the latest “drugs of choice.” Too many doctors get their drug education from these salespeople who often have no medical background. The end result is that when we go to the doctor, whether to address a specific condition or for a routine check-up, more often than not, we come out of the office with one or more prescriptions.
Prescribing medications to treat several health conditions can actually result in side effects that can make problems worse. A side effect doesn’t necessarily have to make itself known when first taking a medication. There is a greater chance of experiencing side effects the longer a drug is taken.
Drug side effects and the elderly
Researchers in Britain have found that commonly used drugs prescribed to half of those that are 65 or older lead to an increased incidence of death and mental health decline, especially when the drugs are prescribed in combination. The researchers’ findings, which was published in the August 2011 Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, suggest that these types of drugs negatively affect the brain and increase the risk of decline and death. The study found that patients taking a combination of prescription drugs were at greater risk.
Elderly people take approximately three times the amount of medications that younger people do. Although the elderly are prescribed a wide array of drugs, the most common drugs are heart medications, statins, benzodiazepines, and antidepressants.
Drugs that treat the cardiovascular system can result in nausea, vomiting, weight loss, anorexia, and bleeding problems. Statins’ side effects include muscle weakness and pain (the most serious that can be life threatening), headaches, nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, skin rash, and general weakness.
Benzodiazepines can result in sedation, confusion, and falls. The side effects of antidepressants include sedation, confusion, falls, low blood pressure, and urinary retention. Antidepressants also thin the blood. They decrease blood clotting capacity, increasing the risk for stomach and uterine bleeding. Add over the counter NSAID’s taken at the same time and the risk doubles.
Other common drugs’ side effects
Other commonly prescribed drugs also have a host of potentially harmful side effects. Examples include:
* Antipsychotic medications that are used to treat “mental disorders” can result in confusion, sedation, low blood pressure, falls, urinary retention, Parkinsonism (involuntary shaking and twitching), and tardive dyskinesia (repetitive body movements)
* Antihistamines used to treat allergies can result in confusion, sedation, low blood pressure, falls, sleep disturbance, and urinary retention
* Drugs that relieve nausea can lead to confusion, sedation, low blood pressure, falls, urinary retention, Parkinsonism, and tardive dyskinesia
* Pain medication can result in constipation, confusion, & sedation. Even over the counter medications can result in serious liver and gastrointestinal side effects.
* Drugs to treat Parkinson’s disease can result in confusion, dizziness, low blood pressure, and an increase in cardiovascular toxicity
* Drugs to relieve muscle spasms can result in dry mouth, constipation, urinary retention, and delirium
* Urinary incontinence drugs can result in dry mouth, constipation, urinary retention, delirium, and confusion
All of these side effects relate to individual drugs. Imagine how these side effects can be compounded by taking several prescription drugs at a time.

A Recent study on antidepressants has shown that the drugs have some serious side effects: those taking certain prescriptions could lose their sex drive. It sounds like the whole nation’s sexuality is under a threat as, according to the statistics, one in ten Americans takes antidepressants. And it’s not only libido people are losing – many of these meds induce anxiety and double the risk of suicide. Psychologist and author Bruce Levine joins RT’s Liz Wahl to discuss the issue.
Microsoft Buys Eugenics Technology From Merck, Becomes Drug Development Partner With Top Global Vaccine Manufacturer
Thursday, February 02, 2012
By: Mike Adams
[NaturalNews] When you buy Microsoft products, you are now promoting the pharmaceutical industry and its global vaccine agenda. That’s the new reality in which we live, where the world’s largest software company is “in bed” with the world’s largest vaccine pusher.
How so? In 2009, Microsoft purchased a key piece of technology from the drug company Merck, the world’s largest maker of vaccines (which Bill Gates says can help “reduce the global population” by 10 to 15 percent). That technology, as you’ll see below, can conceivably be used to develop eugenics vaccines that target specific races and nationalities with infertility-inducing pharmaceuticals — something that is entirely consistent with Bill Gates’ openly-admitted goal of reducing world population through the use of vaccines (see link to video below).
This gene-targeting vaccine research technology purchased by Microsoft was developed by the company known as Rosetta Biosciences, formerly owned by Merck. Their software is described as a way to “figure out how genes interact with each other, analyze peptides and metabolites, and determine how they relate to gene expression.” (http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/microsoft/2009288622_rosetta020…)
An announcement on the Rosetta Biosoftware web site explains, “The deal allows Microsoft to incorporate genetic, genomic, metabolomic and proteomics data management software into the Microsoft Amalga Life Sciences platform for enhanced translational research capabilities.” (http://www.rosettabio.com/company/news/rosetta_microsoft)
This same announcement goes on to say that vaccine maker Merck will “provide strategic input to Microsoft” as a part of the deal. Merck’s strategy, of course, is to make money by pimping vaccines and pharmaceuticals, including the now-infamous Gardasil vaccine.
Rupert Vessey, the vice president of Merck Research Laboratories, openly admits this deal puts Microsoft in the role of being a drug developer. He says, “We look forward to collaborating with Microsoft to develop new bioinformatic solutions to enable and expedite drug discovery and development…”
This is a key statement to understand, because the term “bioinformatic” can only mean one thing. What stores information in biology? These is only one digital storage system in human biology, and that system is, of course, DNA. Therefore, the idea of developing “bioinformatic solutions” really means to develop “gene-targeting drugs and vaccines.”
This is fully consistent with Bill Gates’ admitted agenda of reducing world population with the help of drug company technologies. At a TED conference, he announced in front of a live audience: “…if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower [global population] by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” (http://www.naturalnews.com/029911_vaccines_Bill_Gates.html)
See the video yourself at:
All this comes on the heels of other recent news that Bill Gates is funding sperm-destroying technology to cause widespread male infertility (http://www.naturalnews.com/034834_Bill_Gates_sperm_infertility.html). His foundation has also funded genetically modified mosquitoes and other mad science experiments (http://www.naturalnews.com/030940_Bill_Gates_Foundation_genetics.html).
Microsoft the new leader in eugenics technology?
What’s clear from all this is that Bill Gates is pursuing an agenda of human depopulation. This is a similar agenda of those who pursue eugenics efforts around the globe, including Adolf Hitler and a long list of former FDA Commissioners in the United States. One of the most common ambitions of those in the highest positions of power, it seems, is to cull the human population and eliminate “the little people,” leaving only a “master race” of supreme beings.
Even major universities around the globe are now teaching students that human beings are evil for merely being alive and exhaling carbon dioxide, and that killing off humans is “green” for the planet.
In order to kill off large swaths of human beings, the most efficient mechanism to use is a self-replicating, gene-targeted bioweapon. Microsoft’s Amalga Life Sciences technology, purchased from vaccine developer March, theoretically provides a viable platform to develop precisely such bioweapons. It is interesting that no announcements from the company appear to have been made since being acquired by Microsoft in 2009, indicating that their work is now being conducted in total secrecy, behind closed doors.
U.S. government admits developing weaponized, deadly flu strains
Recent headlines reveal that the United States government has also secretly funded bioweapons research that resulted in the development of super-deadly flu strains that could wipe out far more than just 15 percent of the human population. As revealed in recent news headlines:
“Scientists agreed Friday to a 60-day moratorium on research into a modified avian flu virus that has been demonstrated to be more transmissible among mammals. Although the investigators believe their research has a public health benefit, they acknowledge the fear of some governments and others that the genetically altered virus could escape from labs and infect people.” (http://www.philly.com/philly/health/news/HealthDay660965_20120120_Res…)
That may be precisely the point, it turns out. There is no better way to promote the vaccine profits of the pharmaceutical industry than to actually release an engineered bioweapon virus into the wild. And there is no faster way to reduce the world population than to engineer either a vaccine or a weaponized flu virus that burns through the human population, targeting those of an “undesirable” genetic profile who need to be “cleansed” from the human gene pool.
This about this the next time you think about purchasing Microsoft Office, Windows or some other Microsoft product. By doing so, you are funding what could very well be a global eugenics agenda with the ultimate goal of wiping out a significant proportion of the human race.

Among the many ironies of our modern world is that Gerald Ford awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom-America,s highest civilian honor-to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on January 19, 1977. Just a few weeks later on March 8, Rumsfeld became the CEO of G.D. Searle to take point on a mission to force the Food and Drug Administration to approve for human consumption a known carcinogen and neurotoxic poison.
Mission accomplished: Today some 9,000 commonly consumed products are laced with this weapon of mass misery and millions of people live with chronic illnesses linked to the artificial sweetener aspartame. It is our belief at The Idaho Observer that if some guy named Parkinson can have a disease named after him, then Donald Rumsfeld ought to have his own disease, too. Hence the term Rumsfeld disease A.

It’s not news to say that the medical industry isn’t much interested in our health. Now, wealth - that’s something different, as we’ve seen in the ties between the DSM-5 panel members and pharmaceutical companies and the disease machine that is the cancer research industry. Roche and Genentech, a Swiss-based pharmaceutical hotshot and its US affiliate, respectively, were just caught with their pants down and 80,000 unreported drug files during an inspection.
Adverse Drug Reactions? Tens of Thousands Dead
The files in question reported on patients taking various drugs, and it’s unclear whether all 80,000 reports—or any—regard adverse drug reactions (ADRs). Pharmaceutical companies are legally bound to notify regulatory authorities of adverse drug reactions, but one European Medicines Agency spokeswoman told New Scientist, “They are not necessarily ADRs.”
The EMA probed Roche after UK regulators found insufficient reporting of adverse drug reactions. (They came to this conclusion after another series of inspections, a coordinated European program to inspect the pharmaceutical industry’s safety reporting systems.) At its most recent count, Roche failed to submit 80,000 reports of medicines marketed in the US—reports that recorded 15,161 patient deaths. It’s unclear whether they died due to natural disease progression or drug administration.
Nearly a week after the EMA revealed the discovery on 21 June, Roche reassured the EMA with an action plan for the timely submissions of future reports.
Natural Society wrote on the cancer industry’s equally shady behavior last year, when the Mayo Clinic declared that the last ten years’ worth of cancer research was moot due to fraud. In example, Boston University’s Sheng Wang’s cancer research contained altered results as well as misconduct. The psychiatric community is little better, with 70 percent of panel members for the fifth edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) having financial relationships with pharmaceutical companies.
“To us, science is personal,” Genentech claims on their website. But, really, personal check personal, right? Because no one working for Roche buried reports of 15,161 patient deaths to mourn in private.

[NaturalNews] Are you sick of that throbbing, tight, aching headache day in and day out? Spending countless dollars on “headache relieving” medications, with no relief? The answer may be much easier than popping an ineffectual pill with multiple side effects, one of which is a HEADACHE! Finding the source of your headache, whether it be from your neck, tight muscles, or the food you are eating, chiropractic care can help to reduce or eliminate your symptoms, sometimes after only one or two treatments.
Headaches can start for many reasons, some may include:
• Prescription drug side effects
• Nervous system dysfunction caused by the vertebral subluxation complex (VSC); (Nerves, muscles, soft tissues, bones and chemicals all make up the VSC).
• Tight (hypertonic) muscles in the head, neck, shoulders (caused by “text neck”/forward head posture)
• Processed foods (preservatives, artificial colors, chemical substitutes)
• Vitamin B or D deficiencies
The effects of technology on our bodies
Most of us spend too much time looking down at the computer screen, reading on tablets, or texting on our cell phones. The constant flexed neck posture (“text-neck”) causes the muscles at the base of the skull (suboccipitals) to become stretched tight. This forward head posture places increased stress on your neck causing your cervical spine and upper back muscles to work harder to keep your head and chin upright. Soft tissue and joint manipulation performed by a chiropractor can help reduce tight muscles, trigger points, and joint irritations.
Food and drugs may be to blame
Food additives such as Splenda, aspartame, MSG, wheat/gluten, soy, high fructose corn syrup, and sodium nitrates found in lunch meats/hot dogs contain chemicals that have been linked to causing headaches. Avoiding toxic ingredients will help reduce dietary causes of headaches. Another important fact to note is that nine of the top ten prescribed drugs in the United States list headaches as a side effect; including Zocor, Prilosec and Amoxicillin.
Treating the cause of your headache… naturally
“A report released in 2001 by researchers at the Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center in Durham, NC, found that spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate improvement for those headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension-type headache than a commonly prescribed medication” (The American Chiropractic Association).
Knowing what’s in your food, the side effects of the drugs you take, having adequate Vitamins B/D, staying hydrated, and having a chiropractor find the source of your headaches can help to alleviate the pain you’ve been suffering with day after day.

[NaturalNews] Is it possible that the massive rise in diagnoses of gluten insensitivity and Celiac disease is in some way linked to the medications people are taking? A new study published online in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings seems to suggest so, having found that the popular blood pressure drug Benicar (olmesartan) often causes patients to develop symptoms of Celiac disease that later subside when the medication is ceased.
Dr. Joseph A. Murray, M.D., and his colleagues at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., first made the observation after noting that 22 of the patients admitted to the center over a three-year period had symptoms of Celiac disease, but did not test positive for the condition in blood tests. Upon further investigation, the team determined that olmesartan was the likely culprit.
When the patients with Celiac symptoms stopped taking olmesartan, their symptoms largely disappeared, which suggests that the drug and potentially others in its class may be responsible for triggering allergic and gastrointestinal reactions. In fact, a followup investigation revealed that patients who took olmesartan sustained very serious intestinal damage as a result of the drug, and that this damage began to heal when they stopped taking it.
“There is no question that the report from the Mayo Clinic documenting that olmesartan has severe gastrointestinal adverse effects is of concern,” said Dr. Franz Messerli, M.D., director of the hypertension program at St. Luke’s – Roosevelt Hospital in New York City. “Olmesartan sales have exceeded $500 million a year in the U.S. alone and the drug, as with all ARBs (angiotensin receptor blockers), stands out because of its paucity of side effects.”
Dr. Murray, author of the study, had actually reported these and other serious side effects associated with ARBs to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) back in 2009. But the agency ignored the evidence and unilaterally decreed that the evidence was not definitive enough to verify a “statistically significant’ association between Celiac disease symptoms and ARBs.
But the evidence speaks for itself, as experts suspect that ARBs inhibit transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta), an intestinal cytokine responsible for intestinal equilibrium, also known as homeostasis. By blocking TGF-beta, ARBs prevent the human gut from properly adapting to changing levels and ratios of various bacteria, both good and bad, which upsets digestion and leads to intestinal damage.
“The gut has to learn to tolerate a lot of different bacteria and TGF-beta is an important chemical messenger for that tolerance,” said Dr. Murray to MedPage Today, noting that when patients stopped taking olmesartan, their TGF-beta levels appeared to normalize.
