Cherrix was diagnosed Hodgkin’s, a form of lymphatic cancer, last summer. He said he got sick, lost his hair and lost his energy after taking three months of chemotherapy and radiation treatments. When tests earlier this year showed his cancer was still active, doctors recommended more chemo and radiation, but Abraham chose to go under the care of an alternative cancer clinic in Mexico that uses the Hoxsey method, which includes an organic diet and herbal supplements. Abraham has had several treatments already.

Boy with cancer forced to undergo conventional treatments

Cases like this have been reported a few times. It seems judges are set for the state and the doctors. At least in two early cases, judges agreed with doctors’ and states’ arguement that the conventional treatments are the best for the pediatric cancer patients. A recent case involved a now-13 year-old Texas girl who got lymphoma. She was forced to receive chemotherapy. The custody of the girl was taken away to the State from her parents. And the parents had not been allowed to see their daughter for a few months. After three judges and too much legal fighting, the girl was finally returned to the parents. The doctors involved warned the girl had only 20 percent of chances to survive and might die in two months. In the end, the parents were allowed to seek alternative treatments for their girl. And after more than two months, the girl has been now in her best condition.

Hoxsey – How Healing Becomes A Crime
This documentary concerns Harry M. Hoxsey, the former coal miner whose family’s herbal recipe has brought about claims of a cancer cure. … all » Starting in 1924 with his first clinic, he expanded to 17 states by the mid 1950s, along the way constantly battling organized medicine that labeled him a charlatan. Hoxsey’s supporters point out he was the victim of arrests, or “quackdowns” spearheaded by the proponents of established medical practices. Interviews of patients satisfied with the results of the controversial treatment are balanced with physicians from the FDA and the AMA. A clinic in Tijuana, Mexico claims an 80% success rate, while opponents are naturally skeptical. What is apparent is that cancer continues to be one of humankind’s more dreaded diseases, and that political and economic forces dominate research and development.

FDA’s own scientists report pattern of intimidation, censorship and scientific fraud that undermines public safety
In a truly astonishing survey just released by the Union of Concerned Scientists, the Food and Drug Administration’s own scientists describe the agency as an environment of intimidation, censorship and scientific fraud. A survey of 997 FDA scientists revealed that forty percent feared “retaliation” for voicing safety concerns over prescription drugs in public. Over one-third of the scientists didn’t even feel safe expressing safety concerns inside the agency, behind closed doors! Intimidation and censorship have been well documented at the FDA, and this survey adds further weight to the evidence that the FDA has been utterly co-opted by the pharmaceutical industry and now serves Big Pharma’s commercial interests rather than anything resembling a commitment to honest science or public safety. Time and time again, it has been the courageous actions of independent FDA scientists, taking a stand despite intense intimidation and censorship from the agency’s top officials, who have warned the U.S. public about dangerous prescription drugs like Vioxx.

Murder by Injection by Eustace Mullins
Chapter 10: The Rockefeller Syndicate
The criminal syndicalists are now looting the American nation of one trillion dollars each year, of which about one-third, more than three hundred billion dollars per year, represents the profitable depredations of the Drug Trust and its medical subsidiaries .  Before a sustained effort to combat these depredations can be mounted, Americans must make every effort to regain their health .  As Ezra Pound demanded in one of his famous radio broadcasts, “Health, dammit !”  America became the greatest and most productive nation in the world because we had the healthiest citizens in the world .  When the Rockefeller Syndicate began its takeover of our medical profession in 1910, our citizens went into a sharp decline .  Today, we suffer from a host of debilitating ailments, both mental and physical, nearly all of which can be traced directly to the operations of the chemical and drug monopoly and which pose the greatest threat to our continued existence as a nation .  Unite now to restore our national health—the result will be the restoration of our national pride, the resumption of our role as the inventors and producers of the modern world, and the custodian of the world’s hopes and dreams of liberty and freedom .

Murder by Injection: The Story of the Medical Conspiracy Against America
In this book he details the history of how control of the medicinal market has been won by the FDA and the AMA (and similar organizations in other Nations), and how the healing of citizens has been put in the hands of the Government rather than in the hands of the citizens themselves. Their choices for treatment have been downsized to that of Allopathic medicine, a way of trreatment that is relatively new, only a few hundred years old, if at that, as compared to medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years. This book details the methods used by the Rockefellers to control the medicinal market to their advantage. It also guarantees a level of population control….read on! You will be surprised!

UN’s rising star wants ambassador role for Blair

The United Nations should recruit stars such as Bono and Bob Geldof to inject the kind of passion seen in the Make Poverty History campaign, according to one of the leading candidates to succeed Kofi Annan as its secretary general. Jayantha Dhanapala, a senior adviser to the Sri Lankan President, said he would like to give Tony Blair an ambassadorial role similar to that of Bill Clinton after he quits Downing Street.

Ceausescu regime used children as police spies

romaniancommunistparty

Prior to the uprising in 1989 every village had a roadside sign prasing Nicolae Ceausescu and the Romanian Communist party

· Young informers reported on parents and teachers
· Romanian archives reveal network of thousands

The secret police of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu recruited thousands of children to spy on schoolfriends, parents and teachers, according to communist-era archives. They show that the Securitate blackmailed children across Romania into becoming informers in the late 1980s, as the whiff of liberalisation in the Soviet bloc prompted Ceausescu to tighten his grip on the country. The files have shocked Romanians and prompted calls for an inquiry into why many of the agents who allegedly recruited the child spies continued working for the security services after Ceausescu was toppled and executed in 1989.

FCC Takes Step To Change Media Ownership Rules

Martin has made no secret of his distaste for the current rules
Kevin Martin, the chairman of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission, has reignited the bitter debate over media ownership rules, prompting howls from watchdogs worried about media conglomerates growing too large. At the FCC’s meeting on Wednesday, the agency issued a “Notice of Proposed Rulemaking,” the first step in lifting the rule barring the cross-ownership of newspapers and broadcast outlets, and easing the limit on how many stations a media company can own in any one market. The timing is no accident. Martin has made no secret of his distaste for the current rules.

Protect Independent TV, News, and Radio. Stop Media Consolidation!
Big media companies are lobbying the FCC to rewrite our media ownership rules, which currently limit how many local media outlets a given company can control in every town. Vying for more market control, these conglomerates want to overturn current protections, particularly the rule on “newspaper/broadcast cross-ownership.” This rule prevents companies from owning the major daily newspaper and one or two broadcast TV stations in the same town. If ownership limits are eliminated, ONE media company could potentially own the major daily newspaper, at least EIGHT radio stations and THREE or more television stations in the same town. When big media companies own most of the radio, TV, newspapers in town, the media outlets drift away from serving local needs and air fewer local voices and opinions. Join Consumer’s Union in telling the FCC to stop media consolidation! Be part of the official record, and urge the FCC and Congress to ensure that we have reasonable media rules that ensure diversity, localism and competition.

Israel set war plan more than a year ago
Strategy was put in motion as Hezbollah began increasing its military strength
Israel’s military response by air, land and sea to what it considered a provocation last week by Hezbollah militants is unfolding according to a plan finalized more than a year ago. In the years since Israel ended its military occupation of southern Lebanon, it watched warily as Hezbollah built up its military presence in the region. When Hezbollah militants kidnapped two Israeli soldiers last week, the Israeli military was ready to react almost instantly.

Belgian doctor: Israel using chemical weapons 
“The colour of the skin was black like a shoe, but the skin was not carbonised or burnt.”
The Israeli military is using chemical weapons during its bombing of Lebanon, a Belgian-Lebanese professor claimed during a press conference in Brussels on Thursday. The press conference was organised by the secretary of the Tripoli archbishop, Monsignor Jean Abboud. The Belgian professor of Lebanese origin, Bachir Cham, is the head of a hospital in Lebanon. “The bodies don’t look like they normally do. After an explosion there were no traces of blood loss or subcutaneous haemorrhages [bruises],” Cham said via mobile phone direct from Beirut. “The hair and sometimes the beard and the moustache remained intact. I found no traces of the pressure wave by the explosion. The colour of the skin was black like a shoe, but the skin was not carbonised or burnt.”

Israelis use “unprecedented type of projectiles” on Palestinians
The world stands idle as Israelis test their destructive weapons on Palestinians.
According to a press release issued Tuesday, 11 July, by the Gaza-based Palestinian Health Information Center (PHIC), surgeons have noticed that the majority of wounded civilians admitted to hospitals were exposed to tremendous explosions that burned their limbs and other body organs, causing multiple wounds, lacerated abdomen and internal bleedings. “When the projectile explodes it morphs into very tiny pieces like sand and enters wounded bodies from multiple inlets and goes out from larger exit causing tissue destruction,” one surgeon was quoted as saying.

Mafia merchandising wars have broken out in Sicily over the burgeoning fashion for Cosa Nostra T-shirts – popular since the arrest of mafia godfather Bernardo Provenzano.
