Imagine a commercial plane crashed and there were some fatalities involved. You can be sure that would make the headline of every major newspaper. Well, we have the equivalent of 8-10 planes crashing EVERY DAY with everyone on board dying from cancer.
Last year, as the GlaxoSmithKline ($GSK) bribery probe was heating up, a British P.I. and his wife appeared on Chinese television, wearing handcuffs and prison orange. Word was, their sleuthing firm, ChinaWhys, had been working for pharma companies. Their alleged crime: collecting private information on Chinese citizens.
A bribery scandal in China, with other probes ongoing in the Middle East and Europe. Mounting competition to declining top drug Advair. And so-far-lackluster launches of the products tabbed as future respiratory stars.

The agency charged to protect patients from dangerous drug side effects needs to be far more vigilant when it comes to medications that affect blood pressure.
The leaves of the Moringa oleifera tree are one of Asia’s most nutrient-dense foods. In fact, just one serving of these leaves in powdered form contains almost 50 types of antioxidants and almost 90 different nutrients. Unsurprisingly, numerous studies have linked long-term consumption of Moringa leaves to the treatment of countless health conditions such as osteoporosis, macular degeneration, high blood pressure, obesity and even cancer.
Moringa oleifera can help treat diabetes, study finds
Immunity is crucial. But the artificial kind brought about by vaccines can be extremely damaging, especially when the body’s immune response is too strong. A groundbreaking new study published in the peer-reviewed journal Molecular and Genetic Medicine highlights the consequences of this vaccine-induced immune overload, stating that the majority of American children now suffer from the often debilitating condition.
Ever since China began investigating GlaxoSmithKline’s ($GSK) business practices last year, analysts have feared the British drug giant could get in big trouble in its home country, too. Their worries appear to be justified. Britain’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO) said today it had opened a criminal investigation into GSK, less than two weeks after China slapped corruption charges on three of the company’s top executives.
According to new reports, billions of taxpayer dollars have been thrown at the Obamacare portal known as healthcare.gov, as well as the many individual state exchanges that link up to it since the insurance takeover was first announced. A whopping $5 billion, which is more than 33 times the amount spent by Apple to develop the iPhone, has been wasted on failed websites, fraudulent contractors and ultimately, false promises from the Obama administration.

(HealthDay)—If you’re watching your weight, you may have to watch your white bread consumption, too.
China and India combined have more coal-burning energy plants than the rest of the world, and China has more than India. Japanese scientists are openly complaining that the almost 13,000 foot Mt. Fuji is coated with toxic mercury from China’s coal burning plants.
If you think legitimate science, and not special interests, is what dictates the regulatory process for new chemicals, you might want to think again. A recent investigation by Environmental Health News (EHN) into a controversial, yet highly cited, journal editorial that decries increased regulations for endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) like bisphenol-A (BPA) has revealed that every single editor and scientist who signed onto the paper, with the exception of one, has ties to the pharmaceutical or chemical industries.
Small cigars flavored to taste like candy or fruit are popular among U.S. teens, according to the first government study to gauge their use.
Genetically Modified (GMO) fed beef, pork, poultry, chicken, farmed fish as well as corn, soy, peanut, canola, cotton seed, sugar from beets and major culprit GMO High Fructose Corn Syrup are proven to cause obesity, birth defects, heart disease, cancers, diabetes and premature death. GMO’s are NOT Generally Recognized As Safe, in direct and illegal and felonious violation of the United States Code of Federal Regulations. There are NO safe gmo’s at any exposure or ingestion, period.

An important factor fueling the obesity epidemic has been identified by a new review: Americans now have the cheapest food available in history. Today, two in three Americans are overweight or obese, with rates climbing steadily over the past several decades. Many factors have been suggested as causes: snack food, automobiles, television, fast food, computer use, vending machines, suburban housing developments, and portion size. But after examining available evidence, the authors say widespread availability of inexpensive food appears to have the strongest link to obesity.
Developing countries in Asia may be set to join the first-world obesity epidemic, a new ANU study of nutrition across 12 countries has found.
“We have shown that countries across Asia are on a steep upward trajectory towards diets high in fat, salt and sugar,” said lead author Dr Phillip Baker from the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health.
Metabolism is the process that your body uses to make (or get) energy from the food that you eat, including carbohydrates, proteins and fats. In turn, your body’s “fuel” can be used right away or stored in your tissues like your muscles, liver or body fat. Metabolic disturbances and disorders occur when abnormal chemical reactions disrupt the process of converting food into sugars and acids.
Autism is a direct result og toxic excipients in vaccines, boosters and flu shots. GMO’s are illegal and NOT GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe)…avoid all corn, soy, canola, cottonseed, sugar beets. Monsanto remains the single largest causer of avoidable diseases on the planet.

Brain tumors and their link to cell phone usage is a public health issue which has been hypothesized about for some time now, but evidence is growing to support theories that cell phone usage and brain tumors are linked. A French study published in May this year has suggested that people who spend a lot of time on their cell phones may be at a higher risk of brain tumor development.
Regularly using talc-based baby powders to soothe sensitive skin or eliminate unwanted moisture could eventually lead to cancer, alleges a new class action lawsuit filed against drug giant Johnson & Johnson. Plaintiffs say the company’s popular baby powder product increases women’s risk of ovarian cancer by 33 percent, and that J&J has known about the risk for more than 30 years.
Many everyday chemicals have been linked to breast cancer, warns a comprehensive review performed by the Silent Spring Institute and published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.
If you want to avoid obesity, then avoid eating genetically engineered ( GE ) corn, corn based products and animals that are fed a diet of GE grain. Scientists in Norway have released results from experimental feeding studies, carried out over a ten year period. The results show a positive link between GE corn and obesity. Animals fed a GE corn diet got fatter quicker and retained the weight compared to animals fed a non-GE grain diet. The studies were performed on rats, mice, pigs and salmon achieving the same results.
The nation’s obesity epidemic is striking all groups of Americans, affecting those with more education and those with less education, as well as all ethnic groups, according to a new analysis that challenges prevailing assumptions about the reasons why the nation is getting heavier.
The Antibiotic Resistance is a direct result of Big Pharma dumping massive amounts into gmo cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens to keep the alive prior to slaughter. Watch WHAT’s WRONG WITH WHAT WE EAT? By Mark Bittman on the front page of this website. Once again Big Pharma is out to make you sick, keep you sick, and kill you for profit. 19 of the top 20 global drug companies are self admitted CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION un US Department Of Justice Consent Decree Orders with the lobbied collusion and cooperation of the White House, US Senate, US House pimping for these confirmed mass murdering death merchants, just like Uncle Sam continues to do for Big Tobacco.

Growing resistance to antibiotics and other drugs demands a coordinated global response on the same scale as efforts to address climate change, experts say.
Except for that one $9 billion verdict, Takeda Pharmaceutical is racking up a good record in defending against lawsuits seeking to hold it responsible for bladder cancer suffered by people who took its diabetes drug Actos. On Thursday it fended off a lawsuit by two women ages, 80 and 81, who wanted $1 billion in actual damages.
Two California counties have filed a lawsuit accusing five drug companies of waging a campaign of deception to boost the sales of painkillers behind the nation’s prescription drug addiction problem.
Avoid all plastic blow molded water, juice and soda bottled that are BPA laden and proven cancer causing.
~ Uncle Russ
Numerous studies have linked exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) in plastic, receipt paper, toys, and other products with various health problems from poor growth to cancer, and the FDA has been supporting efforts to find and use alternatives. But are these alternatives safer? Researchers have developed new tests that can classify such compounds’ activity with great detail and speed. The advance could offer a fast and cost-effective way to identify safe replacements for BPA.
When an editorial last week in Chinese state news agency Xinhua warned multinational companies to “respect the Chinese market” and remember “that ethics matter,” it clearly was more than just idle chatter. The country is in the midst of a full-blown corruption investigation aimed largely at Big Pharma, and now it has picked another target: Swiss drugmaker Roche ($RHHBY).
Roche becomes latest target of China corruption crackdown
Agricultural workers, utility crew employees and residents in Washington have been exposed to pesticide applications via numerous “drift events,” reported the Yakima Herald-Republic.
Mini carrots seem like an ideal snack food that can help you to trim your waistline. What could be more wholesome and low in calories than a tiny carrot? It seems like a no-brainer to replace ice cream and potato chips with bite-sized veggies that have long been promoted as healthy.
A bill to prohibit the use of triclosan in most retail consumer hygiene products was signed Friday by Gov. Mark Dayton and is scheduled to take effect Jan. 1, 2017. Minnesota is the first state to take such action, the Associated Press reported.
Targeted interventions based on genetic risk may not be the best approach for preventing type 2 diabetes and instead universal strategies to prevent obesity should be prioritized, according to new research published in this week’s PLOS Medicine.
It was a tetanus shot he received in his late 20s that sent Eric Gladen over the edge healthwise, almost resulting in a tragic suicide. But when the founder of the World Mercury Project eventually learned that the mercury component of the vaccine, Thimerosal, had poisoned him, resulting in severe health problems that seemingly had no cure, Gladen decided to go on an extensive journey to discover the truth.
Saturated and loaded with genetically modified and hydrogenated oils, fried chicken is your heart and brain’s worst nightmare when it comes to “staple food.” Inside that oily breaded mess of toxins lurks artificial hormones and antibiotics your body does not want to have to process. Then there is the meat, which comes from an animal that probably lived its whole short miserable life inside a CAFO “barn.”
The Chinese government has spent the last several months investigating allegedly improper marketing practices by foreign pharmaceutical makers–most notably GlaxoSmithKline ($GSK)–but now the crackdown has hit closer to home. Liu Zhanbin, the chairman of Chinese generics maker Harbin Pharmaceutical Group Sanjing Pharmaceutical, committed suicide Sunday, according to a statement from the company that was obtained by Bloomberg. Local officials were investigating him for possible corruption, according to Bloomberg.
Honeybees that live off the same sweetener found in soft drinks could be more vulnerable to the microbial enemies and pesticides believed to be linked to catastrophic collapse of honeybee colonies worldwide, a new study suggests.
While many have drawn parallels between the two — the movie and the lawsuit both posit an unscrupulous drug company doing fatal drug testing on African children and then trying to cover it up — this is the first report to BNET‘s knowledge that directly asserts that The Constant Gardner is essentially a rewrite of Pfizer’s ill-fated meningitis drug tests in Nigeria. The story provides no sourcing for its claim, just a bald assertion.
Big Pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline is investigating allegations of bribery involving some of its Middle Eastern employees even as the company continues to probe other allegations of corruption in China.
The sky is falling! The sky is falling! When it comes to infectious disease pandemics, one thing you can always count on is that the World Health Organization will be sounding the alarm whether it’s justified or not. Case in point? The WHO’s new declaration that polio is a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern” (PHEIC).
Some of the best arguments are those that are thorough enough to be persuasive, but simple enough to be widely understood. And a new infographic by NurseDegree.net, which can be seen here, seems to accomplish both of these with regards to genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), spelling out how pervasive transgenic crops have become in the modern food supply and what these deadly organisms are doing to the health of our environment.
A new study by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill researchers found that children of depressed mothers treated with a group of antidepressants called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) during pregnancy were more likely to develop Chiari type 1 malformations than were children of mothers with no history of depression.

Type 2 diabetes can be prevented by doing just two sessions of high-intensity training (HIT) a week, new research published in the journal Biology has shown.
We may not associate much risk with seemingly “inedible” genetically modified crops like cotton, but the dangers are very real. GM cotton actually poses a triple threat — Bt pollen, widespread use of cottonseed oil in the food industry and cottonseed cake fed to animals. Researchers are now concerned that Monsanto’s genetically modified cotton crops — grown around the world, from India to the United States, Europe, Australia and South America — are creating antibiotic-resistant superbugs that would make gonorrhea, and possibly tuberculosis, untreatable.
