Today, walking into the local Costco, we could not help but noticed emblazoned in bright red [talk about ominous portent, right?] how Flu Shots were being advertised. Needless to say the thought of anyone injecting toxins into their system just makes me cringe.
One of the noxious substances featured in some vaccines is the element Mercury, which is known to be harmful in any form.
“Mercury Poisoning [also known as hydrargyria or mercualism] is a type of metal poisoning and a metal condition caused by exposure to mercury or its compounds….Toxic effects include damage to the brain, kidneys, and lungs. Mercury poisoning can result in several diseases including acrodynia [pink disease], Hunter-Russell syndrome, and Minamata disease.”
Mercury is highly reactive with selenium, an essential dietary element required by about 25 genetically distinct enzyme types (selenoenzymes). Among their numerous functions, selenoenzymes prevent and reverse oxidative damage in the brain and endocrine organs. The molecular mechanism of mercury toxicity involves its unique ability to irreversibly inhibit activities of selenoenzymes.
It goes without saying, but Mercury is also really detrimental to fetuses as well as infants.1
One would figure that such a dangerous substance should not make it anywhere close to a person, yet alone a child.
You can tell someone that mercury is toxic [and some don’t even know it is, sadly!], and they agree because they know. The mind-numbing part that stretches one’s brain/logic is that if you know it is toxic, why on Earth would you inject that into your child? It goes to show how well the propaganda machine works.
This ominously reminds me of Sodium Fluoride. Reason being is that although Sodium Fluoride is known to be toxic in many forms – even being an ingredient in rat poison! – it’s actually infused into the water supply.
Now let us get back to mercury. It is known that mercury is damaging in any dosages, as well as toxic in all forms.2 This isn’t stretching the imagination one bit. A simple way of thinking of Mercury is: Toxic Substance = Harmful Side Effects.
Shockingly, in 2009 there was a report covered by the Washington Post detailing that High-Fructose Corn Syrup, which been linked to many diseases including cancer, contains mercury.
Average American consumers ingest about 12 teaspoons per day of HFCS with youngsters eating 80% more High Fructose Corn Syrup then average. It’s no wonder that Americans consumed more than 37 pounds of HFCS in the year 2008!3
Of course, that means a hefty amount of mercury making its way into the diets of children, teenagers, adults and the elderly. Perhaps that is one of the myriad reasons why America’s health [and global health for that matter] is declining?
With evidence continuing to mount about the efficacy [or lack there of] of flu vaccines, what is going to give?
Knowing what we know, it’s time that people not only wake up to these series health issues, but also aid in keeping the establishment accountable for allowing such a pervasive and damaging toxin not only in the daily foods we eat, but also in the vaccines millions take blindly. Only then will we being to ameliorate the tsunami of disease that just keeps getting larger and larger.

More scientists flag up health risks from x-ray scanners
An article in the New York Times health and science section today carries several revealing details indicating that doctors and scientists are extremely wary of the TSA’s use of full-body “backscatter” X-ray scanners.
The article details an account from pregnant Yolanda Marin-Czachor, a 34-year-old mother and teacher from Green Bay, Wis., who says:
“one of the first things my doctor said was: ‘Do not go through one of those machines. There have not been any long-term studies. I would prefer you stay away from it.’ ”
Explaining that the machines operate a narrowly focused beam of high-intensity radiation very quickly across the body, the article also notes:
David Brenner, director of the Center for Radiological Research at Columbia University Medical Center, says he worries about mechanical malfunctions that could cause the beam to stop in one place for even a few seconds, resulting in greater radiation exposure.
John Sedat, emeritus professor of biochemistry and biophysics at the University of California, San Francisco, believes that the effective dose could be 45 times as high as the T.S.A. has estimated, equivalent to about 10 percent of a single chest X-ray.
Scrutiny over radiation exposure was heightened recently following apparent efforts by the TSA to cover-up a “cluster” of cancer cases amongst scanner operators at Boston-Logan airport. According to FOIA documents obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), when Union representatives in Boston discovered a “cancer cluster” amongst TSA workers linked with radiation from the body scanners, the TSA sought to downplay the matter and refused to issue employees with dosimeters to measure levels of exposure.
The documents indicated how, “A large number of workers have been falling victim to cancer, strokes and heart disease.”

Go To Sleep Olympics 2012: What Mary Poppins, Nanny States & Lord Voldemort Have to Teach Us About Our Own Slavery
August 3, 2012
Typical reactions to the 2012 Summer Olympics “Bedtime Story” performance have been “Awesome!” or “He shoots sparks out of his wand!” or some other exclamation of excitement and wonder. And it was awesome. It better have been for 42.5 million dollars worth of production. And that’s the official number.
42.5 million dollars worth of production was apparently well invested as it has thoroughly distracted the public from the real message of the opening ceremony. This would be funny, as it is a practical metaphor for the story onstage, were the message not so insidious. In fact, listening to my friends reactions as they were taken in by the facade of the production reminded me of a scene from one of my favorite Broadway shows, Chicago.
In the scene, Roxie, who is on trial for murder (and guilty) has last minute jitters before her trial. Her lawyer, Billy, eases her mind with a little practical advice that, I think, could not be more appropriate for what we saw at the Olympics:
ZIMBABWE (RUWA) — It was a mid September day in 1964 at a local school when 62 children seemed to have aged five to twelve years during a morning recess break at the Ariel grade school.
Over 60 children from the school witnessed two unidentified flying objects (UFO) and several beings.
A child psychiatrist has interviewed the children in detail, some of the children mentioned;
“The noise, it was scary, it sounded like a flute”…. “We say a silver thing with a man standing next to it, I was scared…. the eyes were pointy…. it was scary, the eyes looked evil…. it just stared at me as it wanted to come take us.”
Teachers at the school realized that the entire group of children came back running and screaming as they all say the horrifying sight.
The alien beings apparently were telling the children through some type of ESP that the air was going to run out and the trees were going to die. Humans do not take care of the planet as they should one girl mentioned.

[NaturalNews] Researchers have found a link between dental fillings made using bisphenol A, otherwise known as BPA, and behavior and emotional problems in children.
Scientists from New England Research Institutes in Watertown, Mass., say the effects generally show up a few years later and they were generally small but were nonetheless measurable.
The study’s lead researcher was quick to note that her team did not measure levels of BPA in particular, and did not know if any other chemicals were possibly leaking from the fillings.
“It’s a controversial topic in dental research, how much really does leach (from fillings)… and whether or not that would have an effect,” said study lead Nancy Maserejian. “It’s generally assumed that the amounts leached are tiny.”
Maserejian went onto say that fillings made using the substance are starting to become more popular, in part because they are the same color as teeth – as opposed to earlier, silver-colored amalgam fillings, Reuters reported.
FDA wouldn’t ban chemical’s use in food packaging
According to the Web site “Facts About BPA,” the substance is “the key component used to make epoxy resins and polycarbonate plastic, which are used to make consumer goods that make our lives safer and more convenient.”
In addition, “BPA helps to make epoxy resins durable and to make clear polycarbonate plastic strong, lightweight and resistant to heat and shattering,” the site noted.
Other reports described BPA as a chemical substance that is also found in some food packaging and canned goods. A 2011 study linked prenatal exposure to BPA with hyperactivity and anxiety in girls specifically, though overall its effects are not clear.
In March, the Food and Drug Administration announced it had rejected a petition from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) asking the agency to ban BPA in food-contact materials.
“The Food and Drug Administration’s assessment is that the scientific evidence at this time does not suggest that the very low levels of human exposure to BPA through the diet are unsafe,” the agency said on its Web site.
For the tooth study, Maserejian and her team examined data on 534 children, ages six to ten, who had cavities and were then randomly chosen to receive amalgam fillings or one of two different so-called composite fillings. BPA was used in the manufacturing of one of those composite fillings.
Five years later, parents and their children answered a number of questions regarding depression and anxiety, including attitudes at school and behavior overall.

Do you believe that a hospital is the safest place to give birth to a baby? Society certainly paints the picture this way, portraying the hospital as the savior of sorts where women must rush off to in the middle of the night at the first sign of labor.
However, a growing number of women are choosing to buck the status quo and deliver their babies right at home.
And wouldn’t you know it … this isn’t a new fad, it’s a return to the way women have been birthing babies for ages – and the research shows it’s often the safer way, too.
Home Birth is Safer for Most Low-Risk Pregnancies
In an article written by Judy Cohain, CNM, she highlights 17 studies conducted over the last 15 years that show attended planned home birth is safer for low-risk women than hospital birth. In 12 of the studies, rates of perinatal mortality (deaths that occur before, during or immediately after birth) were either lower or similar for home birth, while rates of maternal morbidity were significantly lower, compared to hospital birth.
She pointed out five studies that appeared to show home birth as less safe, but this was because they included high-risk cases in the mix. Cohain stated:1
“Another 5 studies claim home birth to have a higher perinatal mortality rate compared to hospital birth but they all include high risk births in the planned homebirth group.
Instead of excluding the high risk births from both groups, they include the home birth outcomes of premature births at 34-37 weeks gestation, breech and twins, lethal anomalies incompatible with life, unattended home births, unplanned home births, or women who became risked out of home birth by becoming high risk at the end of pregnancy, had hospital births, but are included in the home birth group.
These 5 studies conclude that home birth is less safe than hospital birth, when what these papers actually found is that low risk births are safer at home but premature births have better outcomes in hospital.
Possible explanations for the false conclusion of these studies could be paternalistic power games over women or hospital birth being not only the most common but also the most profitable reason for hospitalization. Remove the high risk births from those studies and they also confirm that home birth is safer for low risk women than hospital birth.”
What Makes Hospital Births Risky for Low-Risk Women?
When you enter a hospital setting, birth, an inherently natural experience, is automatically turned into a medical condition. Many women are given the drug Pitocin, a synthetic form of oxytocin, to jumpstart labor and intensify contractions, or their membranes are artificially ruptured, which then can set off a cascade of biological changes that increase the need for more medical interventions, and ultimately Caesarean section (C-section).
C-section is the most common operation performed in the United States, and accounts for nearly one-third of all births. According to the World Health Organization, no country is justified in having a cesarean rate greater than 10 percent to 15 percent. The United States’ rate, at nearly 32 percent, is so high that even The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists admits it is worrisome.
This is actually the highest rate ever reported in the United States, and a rate higher than in most other developed countries. One study in the British Medical Journal found that a woman’s risk of death during delivery is three to five times higher during cesarean than a natural delivery, her risk of hysterectomy four times higher, and her risk of being admitted to intensive care is two times higher.2
C-section rates are lower among home births, as well as midwife-attended births. At one small hospital run by the Navajo Nation, where midwives deliver most babies born vaginally, the C-section rate is only 13.5 percent.
