“Herd Immunity.” The flawed science and failures of mass vaccination, Suzanne Humphries, MD

The oft-parroted sound bite – “we need herd immunity”- implies that if ninety five percent of the population can become “immune” to a disease via vaccination, target immunity levels will be met and diseases will either be eradicated or controlled. This sound bite is the most commonly pulled weapon used by the vaccinators, only second to “smallpox and polio were eradicated by vaccination.” “Herd immunity” is the trump card for the defense of vaccination on TV, Internet, medical journals and newspapers as to why we should be vaccinated over and over throughout our lives, with an ever-increasing number of vaccines.

Paul Offit smiled and PLAYED THE CARD while peddling his book on the comedy central channel as Steven Colbert jokingly said, “if the vaccines work so good for you, why do I need one?” Dr. Mark Segal PULLED IT on fox news as Mary Holland, JD eloquently described the issue of vaccine injury and loss of legal recourse in an era of forced and mandated vaccines. In addition to flaunting several false allegations and sound bites, Dr. Segal’s well-rehearsed rant brushed right over the issue at hand, the fact that victims of vaccine injury have no legal right to sue – and instead launched into his agenda of scaring the listeners by parroting the “herd immunity” dogma.

The hype about herd immunity unfortunately creates a wall of hostility between those who vaccinate and those who delay some vaccines, avoid certain vaccines, or quit vaccinating altogether.

Since the beginning of vaccination, there is little proof that vaccines are responsible for eradicating disease even when herd immunity vaccination levels have been reached. Yet celebrity doctors rattle on about your unvaccinated neighbor being the biggest threat to your child – as if vaccination was the only way to avoid an illness or stay healthy.

To make matters worse, this intimidation to vaccinate is played out in an environment where WHO and vaccine manufacturers have been accused of scandalous misrepresentations of disease risk or vaccine safety and effectiveness. If the allegations against these entities are true, which I believe they are, we are being systematically altered, sickened and manipulated by powerful governing bodies that either don’t understand the risks of vaccination, or don’t care. We are told that the health of the herd is more important than any single life, and you now have no conventional legal recourse when your little sheep is wounded by any type of vaccine, no matter how it happened.

The money factor
The population of the world is expanding over the past 200 years where vaccines have been used, and this makes obtaining herd immunity even more expensive and impossible today than ever. How many billions of people would need to be vaccinated how many times to eradicate just one illness based on the theory of vaccine herd immunity? How much would that cost? Consider the cost of vaccines, refrigeration, vaccinators, and hazardous waste removal. Just look at chicken pox vaccine at $7.25 per dose for the CDC discounted price. Each child gets 2 doses. The US census shows 25.7 million children between 0-5 years. Just the cost of the vaccines to vaccinate each of those children, not including the lifetime of boosters, refrigeration, administration and waste, costs the government over 372 million dollars. Chicken pox vaccines are now being exposed for the failure they are, but vaccine profits are still climbing. After the members of the herd stopped transmitting natural immunity to each other because of the vaccine effect, shingles increased. The response- more doses of vaccine for children and a shingles vaccine to adults. HERE is a recent journal abstract describing the failure of herd protection by varicella vaccines. In a SEPARATE DOCUMENT, Dr. Goldman says:

“Prior to the universal varicella vaccination program, 95% of adults experienced natural chickenpox (usually as school aged children)—these cases were usually benign and resulted in long term immunity. This high percentage of individuals having long term immunity has been compromised by mass vaccination of children which provides at best 70 to 90% immunity that is temporary and of unknown duration—shifting chickenpox to a more vulnerable adult population where chickenpox carries 20 times more risk of death and 15 times more risk of hospitalization compared to children. Add to this the adverse effects of both the chickenpox and shingles vaccines as well as the potential for increased risk of shingles for an estimated 30 to 50 years among adults. The Universal Varicella (Chickenpox) Vaccination Program now requires booster vaccines; however, these are less effective than the natural immunity that existed in communities prior to licensure of the varicella vaccine.”

In India, doctors are concerned about profit margins being protected before human lives, with recommendations to vaccinate every child with more expensive, newer vaccines.  Dr Jacob Puliyel describes the problems he sees..

“An analysis in the Lancet showed how the Pneumococcal vaccine reduces only 4 cases of pneumonia per 1000 children. The cost for vaccinating 1000 children comes to $ 12,750. Treating the 4 cases of pneumonia in India using WHO protocol, would cost $ 1. The pneumococcus strains prevalent in India are nearly all sensitive to inexpensive antibiotics like penicillin. In the US which has been using the pneumococcal vaccine for some years now, there has been a strain shift – strains covered in the vaccine are being replaced by other strains. Ominously the new strains are more antibiotic resistant. Vaccine has simply made the problem of pneumococcal disease worse. Yet this vaccine is being pushed in Africa and Asia.…It is not about lives lost in poor countries – it is all about the cash register. These organizations and their sponsors have profit margins to protect. Ethics is not a major issue with them.”

The profits to vaccine manufacturers and the government must be enormous.

The CDC is in the vaccine business. Members of the CDC’s Vaccine Advisory Committee accept payment from vaccine manufacturers. Sanofi-Pasteur, Merck and others specifically seek to employ CDC staff once their contracts have run out. Relationships have included sharing a vaccine patent, owning stock in a vaccine company, payments for research, payment to monitor manufacturer vaccine tests, and funding academic departments. Thanks to a 1980 law, the CDC currently holds dozens of licensing agreements. It also has numerous ongoing projects to collaborate on new vaccines.

The science?
What science is there behind the belief that the herd can be protected by vaccinating enough of the sheep? Or that any disease has been eradicated from the planet thanks to a vaccine?

Recently, I was told by a vaccinator that “herd immunity is just a definition and so it can’t actually be wrong. “ But the assumption of a 95% vaccination rate giving the herd a chance at eradication or higher levels of health – can be wrong. Let us go back in time and see just where the idea behind this definition probably comes from. Dr A.W. Hedrich in 1929, studied the natural occurrence of measles.

“On the basis of field surveys of various workers, it is inferred that approximately 95% of the children in cities suffer measles attacks by the fifteenth birthday. “  


Before vaccines, outbreaks of measles were observed in 2 to 3 year cycles, and 95% of the population developed immunity by the age of fifteen.

The original idea that vaccination could strengthen the herd’s immunity, assumed that there was only one clinical event, and that one natural exposure equated life -long immunity. But this was not the case back when the diseases circulated freely. Vaccinators miss the point that the body defends most efficiently as a result of ongoing re-exposure. They try to mimic this with boosters. But the vaccination plan leaves the elderly(due to vaccine-induced immunity being short-lived and antigens taken out of circulation) and the very young(due to lack of transferrable maternal immunity) more vulnerable to several diseases that were not a threat to them before vaccination. In the case of chicken pox, vaccination renders the elderly more apt to shingles infections, because the herd has now lost the continued and benign re-exposures to children with chicken pox.

Instead of figuring out why a very small number develop dangerous invasive conditions, vaccine enthusiasts recommend vaccinating as often as possible in order to protect against something that would never be a danger to the vast majority of those vaccinated. If you constantly swab throats of healthy people most would be carrying and circulating supposed pathogens, as commensals.[2] At any one time in any society, neisseriae(the bacteria isolated in some cases of meningitis) are being circulated, yet most of the time, nothing happens, other than the body notes it, defends against it, and the host has no idea that they even carried it.[3] But now that vaccines for as many types as possible have been developed, the vaccine is the answer to the problem. This is typical for diseases today.

It is well documented that prior to vaccination, cycles of natural infection added to the herd’s immunity.

“The formal demonstration that both maternal antibodies and early exposure to infection are required for long-term protection illustrated that constant re-infection cycles have an essential role in building a stable herd immunity. In a population that is not constantly exposed to the infection during early infancy under the immunologic umbrella of maternal antibodies or vaccinated thoroughly a serious risk of re-emerging infections may arise. “  


Vaccination creates a “quasi-sterile” environment that opens up the possibility of disease outbreaks.

“Attempts to eradicate measles virus or poliovirus eliminates antigen exposure of infants to these pathogens. Such quasi-sterile epidemiological situations may actually increase the risk of outbreaks.” 


We know this is possible because there have been eruptions of measles in the USA in populations that were 100 percent vaccinated.

“The affected high school had 276 students and was in the same building as a junior high school with 135 students. A review of health records in the high school showed that all 411 students had documentation of measles vaccination on or after the first birthday, in accordance with Illinois law.” 


Within the scope of vaccination, when a quasi-sterile situation is created, and measles breaks out in the midst, the only solution within that paradigm is to vaccinate more people, more often. This is a backwards solution to the problem when considering who remains susceptible even in the face of full compliance: infants and non-immune adults. Susceptible age groups have essentially traded places since vaccinating. What used to happen with measles is that infants were protected by maternal antibodies, adults were protected by continued exposure, and infected children handled the disease normally and became immune for long periods of time. So, while measles vaccines have decreased the expression of measles infections, it has not necessarily improved the bigger picture. And certainly there are numerous troubles with the side effects of the vaccine.

Prior to vaccination, mothers were naturally immune to measles and passed that immunity to their infants via placenta and breast milk. Vaccinated mothers may have vaccine immunity, which is not the same immunologically, as natural immunity. One of the major differences in the vaccine-induced immunity is that it cannot be passed from mother to infant.

Since most vaccines are delivered by injection, the mucous membranes are bypassed and thus blood antibodies are produced but not mucosal antibodies. Mucosal exposure is what contributes to the production of antibodies in the mammary gland. A child’s exposure to the virus while being breastfed by a naturally immune mother would lead to an asymptomatic infection that results in long-term immunity to that virus. Vaccinated mothers have lower levels of virus-specific antibodies in the serum and milk compared to naturally immune mothers and thus their infants are unprotected.

“Infants whose mothers were born after 1963 had a measles attack rate of 33%, compared to 12% for infants of older mothers.” Infants whose mothers were born after 1963 are more susceptible to measles than are infants of older mothers. An increasing proportion of infants born in the United States may be susceptible to measles.” 


For the disease of measles, we see that while the clinical case rate may have declined with vaccination, the most sensitive members of the herd are at an increased risk- as a result of vaccination.

Dr Peter Aaby has produced volumes of research on measles in Africa. Initially there was a belief that measles infection was associated with immune suppression and higher long-term mortality, but that belief came from vaccine research, not natural measles research.

“The belief in persistent immune suppression was stimulated by increased mortality after high-titre measles vaccination.” 


Once natural measles was monitored long-term the knowledge changed. According to Aaby,

“When measles infection is mild, clinical measles has no long-term excess mortality and may be associated with better overall survival than no clinical measles infection. Sub-clinical measles is common among immunised children and is not associated with excess mortality.”  


Measles is mildest when the infected person is replete with vitamins C and A. The devastation and mortality you hear about with measles comes from starving populations.

Do you know that 30% of cases of measles in unvaccinated are missed because they are so mild?[10] Subclinical measles is an entity that most doctors today are unaware of. If they are missed in unvaccinated, and there are known outbreaks of measles in 100 percent vaccinated populations, are cases missed in vaccinated populations too? Is measles still alive and well but going unnoticed in vaccinated countries, until a well-publicized outbreak occurs, as vaccine necessity is being trumpeted? What doctor would know or is even looking for atypical measles?

Talk to your grandmother about measles. Ask her if she saw death and destruction from the disease. It was not a disease that needed eradication. The high death rates were in countries where children were undernourished and lacked vitamins necessary to process the virus. Alexander Langmuir, MD is known today as “the father of infectious disease epidemiology.” In 1949 he created the epidemiology section of what is now known as the CDC. He also headed the Polio Surveillance Unit that was started in 1955 after the polio vaccine misadventures. Dr Langmuir knew that measles was not a disease that needed eradication when he said:

“To those who ask me, ‘Why do you wish to eradicate measles?,’ I reply with the same answer that Hillary used when asked why he wished to climb Mt. Everest. He said, ‘Because it is there.’ To this may be added, “. . and it can be done.”  


Langmuir also knew that by the time vaccination was developed, measles mortality in the USA had already declined to minimal levels when he described measles as a

“… self-limiting infection of short duration, moderate severity, and low fatality…” 


The vaccine was created because it could be done, not because we needed it. Measles is not eradicated. Outbreaks happen all over the world, and will continue. And now infants will be unprotected because of the absence of maternal antibodies in their vaccinated mother’s milk. So much for protecting the most vulnerable in the herd.


“We were fortunate enough to address their own medical (and) health officials where we reminded them of the incidence of smallpox in formerly “immunized” Filipinos. We invited them to consult their own medical records and asked them to correct us if our own facts and figures disagreed. No such correction has been forthcoming, and we can only conclude that between 1918-1919 there were 112,549 cases of smallpox notified, with 60,855 deaths. Systematic (mass) vaccination started in 1905, and since its introduction case mortality increased alarmingly. Their own records comment that “The mortality is hardly explainable.”

    • Second Thoughts on Disease

Orthopox is a member of the family of Poxviridae. The ancestor of the poxviruses is not known but structural studies suggest it may have been an adenovirus or a species related to both the poxviruses and the adenoviruses. Orthopox viruses include cowpox(vaccinia), smallpox(variola), and monkeypox. Mutations do occur in these viruses, but at a very slow rate.

Between October 1970 and May 1971 a poxvirus was isolated from some symptomatic patients in West Africa. That virus is now known as “human monkeypox.” Monkeypox got its name because monkeys were the first animals known to have harbored the monkeypox virus. Scientists now say that the primary reservoirs for monkeypox virus are not monkeys but probably squirrels. WHO officials in 1976 had no idea what the true reservoir of infection was.[13] Today, according to CDC, it remains uncertain.

Smallpox was declared eradicated worldwide by the World Health Assembly on May 8,th 1980. Vaccination was stopped in the USA in 1972. However, poxviruses that were indistinguishable from smallpox continued to cause human disease.

Monkeys in surrounding areas where monkeypox outbreaks occur usually test negative for monkeypox. But prairie dogs, exotic rodents, Gambian rats, dormice, rope squirrels and other animals have tested positive. Nobody really knows when or where monkeypox viruses originated, but they seem to be close relatives of cowpox and smallpox. All three viruses have rodent reservoirs, which is important when considering the history and current transmission of smallpox and monkeypox. Today, monkeypox outbreaks are blamed on rodents or exotic pet imports, not person-to -person transmission even though human transmission does occur. Historically, smallpox reservoirs were also rodents – during a time when rodents were eaten as food and when infestations were commonplace. Yet in the discussion of smallpox outbreaks this is rarely mentioned. What we hear is how the vaccine eradicated the disease.

THIS ARTICLE states that monkeypox was first recorded in 1970 after the eradication of smallpox in the Democratic Republic of Congo. University of California, School of Public Health epidemiologist Dr Anne Rimoin states that monkeypox first arrived in humans after smallpox eradication, even though it has been on the earth for millennia.

“Monkeypox has probably occurred for millennia in central Africa, but it’s only since the eradication of smallpox that it’s been a disease that actually happens in humans,” Rimoin says. ” 

There is absolutely zero certainty as to when monkeypox first colonized humans. It is more accurate to say that monkeypox was first detected in humans around the time that smallpox was being declared eradicated, not that it arrived in humans at that time. Differentiation tests were not carried out on most cases of pox in the past 200 years.

Laboratory diagnostic assays for monkeypox include virus isolation and electron microscopy, ELISA, immunofluorescent antibody assay, histopathologic analysis, and Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). Unfortunately, most of these methods are relatively nonspecific and are unable to differentiate monkeypox viral infection from infection with other poxviruses.[14] All but PCR are fraught with false positives, false negatives, and cross reactivity.

In the 1970s and 1980s, biochemical tests were unreliable in differentiating between monkeypox and smallpox. Animal challenge tests were historically used to determine the difference between monkeypox and smallpox. The technique involved inoculating rabbits and watching the characteristics of the pox. Initially the two kinds of pox appear similar in the rabbit, but after a few days, monkeypox distinguishes itself as it becomes hemorrhagic. LINK TO DOC HERE.

The problem with such means for distinction is that there has always been a hemorrhagic form of smallpox.

“There are four types of variola major smallpox: ordinary; modified; flat; and hemorrhagic…. Hemorrhagic smallpox has a much shorter incubation period and is likely not to be initially recognized as smallpox when presenting to medical care. Smallpox vaccination also does not provide much protection, if any, against hemorrhagic smallpox.”  


ELISA is not much of a gold standard test as it casts a very wide net, and is fraught with false positive and false negative results.[16]  ELISA TUTORIAL HERE.

The genomes of these three orthopox viruses are extremely conserved and require a technology that can detect the minute differences. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is a newer test that came on the scene in the 1980s. This test is different in that it can potentially find pieces of DNA from a virus. The genetic sequence of a virus has to first be mapped prior to designing a PCR test. So before smallpox, cowpox, or monkeypox viruses were characterized genetically, PCR could not be applied to distinguish between them. The first PCR test for monkeypox was used in 1997, but highly sensitive real-time PCR was not in use until 2006.[17] Different biotech companies have developed different tests that use different primers. PCR, while highly sensitive and specific at about 98%, still has drawbacks, contamination being the biggest one. No test is foolproof. Nonetheless it is probably the best assay available for detection and distinction today.

It should now be obvious that during the two centuries of smallpox vaccination and up until the 1990s there was no certain way of testing for distinct orthopox viruses. During the two centuries of vaccination, the viruses were likely to mutate, and certain strains could have been selected out as a result of vaccination.

Therefore, does anyone know how much ‘smallpox’ disease was actually monkeypox or vaccinia? Given that monkeypox is thought to be an ancient virus, where was it during the smallpox epidemics? Was it called hemorrhagic smallpox?

In 1972, scientists were asking similar questions when they said:

“Is it possible that there is an animal reservoir for smallpox infection? Could monkeypox be a source of new outbreaks of true variola? Or, can the monkeypox virus undergo certain mutations and become identical in its pathogenicity and infectiveness to the variola virus?” 


ACCORDING TO SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN., monkeypox is not that rare. Seven hundred and sixty cases of monkeypox were counted in the Congo between 2006 and 2007.

Before and during the time of eradication declaration, PCR was unavailable, and the different poxviruses couldn’t be distinguished by their DNA, but by a skin test on rabbits, chick embryo membranes, and blood tests that were fraught with uncertainty. It seems to me that what was once called smallpox was likely a very non-uniform disease that could have been anything from cowpox to two forms of smallpox to chickenpox to monkeypox.

“Monkeypox virus is closely related to some other orthopoxviruses such as variola (smallpox) virus, and it cannot be distinguished from these viruses in some laboratory tests.…In 1996-1997, an outbreak [of monkeypox] in the DRC continued for more than a year, with a person–to–person transmission rate estimated at 78%. However, epidemiological evidence suggests that many of the cases in this outbreak may have been chickenpox (varicella); the number of monkeypox cases and the transmission rate might have been overestimated due to self-reporting and the unavailability of laboratory testing.” 


When vaccination stopped, monkeypox was suddenly diagnosed in humans. Diagnostic methods were absent during the great vaccine campaigns and everything pox-like was considered smallpox and counted as smallpox. Differentiating was not a priority.

Variola, the smallpox virus, is not in the smallpox vaccine. Instead, a cultured form of cowpox, called vaccinia, is the virus used to prevent smallpox. That same vaccine also covers monkeypox, according to the CDC:

“Because the monkeypox virus is related to the virus that causes smallpox, the smallpox vaccine can protect people from getting monkeypox as well as smallpox.

Smallpox vaccine is effective at protecting people against monkeypox when it is given before they are exposed to monkeypox. (Exposure includes very close contact with a person or animal that has monkeypox.) Experts believe that vaccination after exposure to monkeypox may help prevent the disease or make it less severe.” [20]

Even though PCR can distinguish between the three viruses, clinically and immunologically the viruses are so similar, that one virus in the vaccine is thought to immunize against the two other viruses. During outbreaks they all look the same.

After the world trade center collapses in New York there were concerns over potential bioterrorism. Forty thousand health care workers and first responders and 450 thousand military were vaccinated in 2003. They were all contagious for the nineteen-day post-vaccine shedding period. Some doctors were asked to receive the vaccine in order to care for those who took the vaccine and developed vaccinia, or to care for those who became infected upon contact with a recently vaccinated person.

Multi-state outbreaks of monkeypox were reported in the same year.[21] Most cases are presumed to have come from contact with prairie dogs exposed to rodents per CDC. However all cases were not exposed to animals.  ACCORDING TO A 2005 REPORT, of 72 cases only 37 cases were laboratory confirmed. Eleven original cases were thrown out of the database when they met exclusion criteria. EXCLUSION CRITERIA. There is mention of human to human infection, though in some reports this is denied.

This is a very strange coincidence; vaccination and concomitant pox outbreaks in the same year. Supposedly, monkeypox is not easily transmissible between humans, but there is a report in the literature of a 5 chain human-to -human transmission, and human-to-human monkeypox transmission is well documented.[22]  A NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE REPORT vaguely stated that “There was ‘limited or no’ spread of monkeypox virus through human contact during this outbreak.” 

In 2003, the year that half a million people were vaccinated in the USA – AND the only year of monkeypox outbreaks in the USA, a multistate (Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin) outbreak, was the source of the outbreak definitely prairie dogs? CDC doesn’t state how many pox cases were exposed to prairie dogs, just “the majority of them had direct or close contact.” The vagueness of CDC’s reports gives rise to doubts. Only 37 of 72 cases were confirmed with PCR tests, and eleven of the original total were excluded from analysis. Excluding numerous cases on frivolous grounds is one way to dampen a negative outcome after a vaccine accident.

Considering the link with vaccination is not far-fetched especially given that CDC reports say that only roughly half of cases were PCR confirmed. Vaccination has long been a relatively common means of transmitting pox outbreaks. According to Arita and Gromyko’s WHO bulletin in 1982, vaccination was a major fly in the eradication ointment…

“During the last 24 months, for example, surveillance reports from Canada and the United Kingdom have included 6 and 9 cases, respectively, of vaccine complications. At least 8 cases, however, were in persons who, while not vaccinated themselves, had been infected with vaccinia virus after being in contact with persons recently vaccinated. In some countries vaccination of recruits to the armed services has continued; these recruits will occasionally transmit vaccinia infection to unvaccinated persons, and inevitably some of the complications will be fatal. In the United Kingdom and Finland, smallpox vaccination of army recruits was discontinued in 1981.” 


Without discontinuing vaccination, it would have been impossible to stop the flow of smallpox. Doesn’t that lead you to wonder how much smallpox was the result of the vaccine rather than natural smallpox? We know that in places like Leicester UK, when vaccination ceased, so did smallpox. And there are numerous accounts of smallpox disease not only being much more severe and deadly among vaccinated populations, but also more prevalent.

Isn’t it interesting that smallpox vaccine defies everything we know about specificity in immunity and that one vaccine covers all sorts of pox, except chicken pox? Can you imagine, nowadays, if a vaccine researcher suggested that an illness could be prevented by using a slightly related virus? Today’s vaccines contain numerous strains and types of the same organism. Polio vaccine has 3 types of poliovirus, influenza 2 strains of type A and one strain of type B. But smallpox vaccine today contains one of many possible strains of a related virus, not even the smallpox(variola) virus at all. In Jenner’s time, it is anyone’s guess which viruses ended up in the vaccines since the technique was so primitive and typing methods were not available. Still, these vaccinia vaccines are thought to have eradicated smallpox, and serve as the foundation for vaccine faith.

Scientists back in the 1800s and early to mid 1900s had no way to differentiate smallpox, cowpox, monkeypox or most other pox diseases in humans. Nor was there any effort to differentiate, until the disease was declared eradicated – just like when polio was eradicated. Anything that looked like polio, but not caused by a polio virus, was called acute flaccid paralysis.

Monkeypox and smallpox look identical on physical examination. Have a look at these two photos:

You probably can’t tell the difference between the two diseases, and neither can most doctors. Edward Jenner and the doctors of the 1800s and 1900s were also unable to distinguish smallpox – major and minor, monkeypox, or cowpox, or even chickenpox.

“When [monkeypox]infection in human beings does occur, it can be clinically indistinguishable from smallpox, chickenpox, and other causes of a vesiculopustular rash.”


It is now known that many cases of smallpox were mild. These are termed variola minor as the mortality is only about one percent. Variola major and variola minor are indistinguishable using the sensitive PCR test. In order to distinguish the variants, because they are nearly identical, an ultra-sensitive, highly technical real time PCR test using MGB-Eclipse probe chemistry had to be designed. Note that these tests were designed using laboratory stored smallpox virus, not natural virus. Scientists have to go to great lengths in order to make a genetic distinction between these two variants because they are so very similar. So the question that begs an answer is, are these viruses really that different? Distinction is ridiculously laborious and such splitting hairs is fraught with potential errors. Loveless[24] et al. describe the tedious process of distinction and the pitfalls of the assay in their paper.  Other researchers note that about one-third of the variola minor viral proteins are 100% identical to correlates in the variola major strains and the remainder were >/=95% identical.

Do you think your doctor would know a case of variola minor if he/she saw it? Or would it just be called chicken pox? Do you think your doctor would even think that it could be smallpox, given that smallpox is thought to be eradicated? There are clinical means to distinguish the difference, but few doctors think of it, and in the minor forms of smallpox it wouldn’t matter anyway.

Many believe that smallpox was eradicated from the planet because of vaccination. I once believed this idea that was taught to me in medical school, and that all conventional doctors parrot as if they understood the history. With just a little research it becomes evident that even though smallpox seems to have disappeared, this was not the result of mass vaccination.

It is obvious that the vaccines of 1796-1900s were not purified or uniform, yet they serve as the foundation for successful vaccination. They were made on farms from scrapings of infected cow bellies, coarsely filtered, and mixed in glycerine. While today’s vaccine product may be more meticulously manufactured, the CDC admits that the science behind even modern smallpox recommendations has been little more than a guess.

“…data on duration of protection and recommendations on periodicity of vaccinations are limited and based to a large extent on historic precedent and expert opinion used to develop previous ACIP recommendations for smallpox vaccination for laboratory workers using orthopoxviruses.” 


And CDC has no idea what antibody titer is protective.

“The levels of antibody reported by these tests indicate only exposure, and the protective antibody titer against smallpox infection is unknown.”  


They surmise that the vaccine provides high-level immunity for 3-5 years.

Here is a graph of smallpox vaccination deaths and smallpox disease deaths, from England spanning the years of 1906-1922.

The vaccine-associated deaths are conspicuously high, at about half the rate of smallpox deaths.

Dr. Charles T. Pearce in his 1868 essay on vaccination wrote:

“It is a remarkable fact that Jenner’s[the inventor of smallpox vaccine] first child, his eldest son, on whom he experimented, died subsequently of consumption[tuberculosis]. Another of his subjects, the man Phipps, whom Jenner vaccinated, also died of consumption.”

Those who were vaccinated for smallpox were noted to be more severely affected by smallpox and tuberculosis. Many were exposed to tuberculosis from tuberculous animals that were used to make vaccines.  CLICK HERE TO LINK TO “SMALLPOX AND THE FIRST VACCINE” CHAPTER FROM OUR UPCOMING BOOK.

Smallpox manifested in several different forms(ordinary, modified, malignant, hemorrhagic). Genetically the minor and major forms of variola are related and indistinguishable by PCR. Individual susceptibility, rather than the virus probably made the biggest difference. Susceptibility would have certainly increased after injection of filthy vaccines that contained myriad bacteria and viruses.

What is most likely is that the appearance and disappearance of epidemics had much to do with the constitution and care of the population of the times. Scurvy was common in areas with hemorrhagic smallpox. This is no surprise to anyone who understands the full spectrum of ascorbic acid’s function in the body, especially on blood vessels.

Pox epidemics declined as a result of sanitation and improved nutrition. During the era of smallpox most people were living in squalor, eating no fresh food, but rotten milk and rotten meat, drinking sewer water, living among filthy rodents, and working long hours for little pay. Pox viruses are ancient, but smallpox evolved as a deadly killer as humanity devolved to overcrowded city dwellers living with filth, squalor, and desperation.

Historical evidence points to the fact that the vaccinated were amongst the sickest in times of smallpox vaccines. Protests against the vaccinators and smallpox vaccination were massive.[27] Parents commonly chose jail rather than permit their newborn babies to be vaccinated. Entire towns and districts revolted before the disease was finally declared eradicated, and the vaccine madness ended.

Smallpox vaccination ended in the 1980s because smallpox had declined and because there was so much trouble with the old unsafe vaccine. That same trouble with the newer supposedly more safe smallpox vaccines is why smallpox vaccination ended after the 2003 first responder effort. Which makes you wonder just how much more trouble there was with the old smallpox vaccine which had a very long list of known bacterial and other “contaminants” because of its method of production. After the 2003 vaccines, reports of generalized vaccinia, autoinoculation, erythema multiforme, myopericarditis, ocular vaccinia, and postvaccinial encephalitis were reported.

Smallpox was declared eradicated before clear distinctions between different poxviruses were made using DNA analysis. Symptoms alone are what were counted for smallpox during smallpox epidemics. Vaccination was a major source of smallpox outbreaks, and only a small portion of the earth’s entire herd was ever even vaccinated. Considering all of this, how can anyone believe that smallpox was eradicated with a vaccine?
With every vaccine suppressible disease, the general hysteria level usually depends on the availability of a vaccine. Once a vaccine was available, the disease was suddenly made out to be more problematic. Look how dangerous chicken pox became after the vaccine was developed.
Pertussis is now hot news and the unvaccinated interrupting herd immunity is raised over and over, despite the science that shows the vaccinated are by far and away the most affected by whooping cough.

“Our unvaccinated and under-vaccinated population did not appear to contribute significantly to the increased rate of clinical pertussis. Surprisingly, the highest incidence of disease was among previously vaccinated children in the eight to twelve year age group.” 


This is the most recent, but not the first study to demonstrate 86% of cases of proven whooping cough are in the vaccinated. How can getting even 100% vaccination uptake create an immune herd with such vaccines?

Mumps vaccine was known to be ineffective after two major outbreaks in vaccinated populations in the USA. Yet the solution was to double the boosters in children with a vaccine that is now ALLEGED by two former Merck scientists, to have been known to be ineffective by Merck’s executives.

Jenner’s initial promise was “We have a vaccine that will protect you for life with one injection.” But even he was revaccinating his patients yearly, within 5 years of making that statement. And when that doesn’t pan out with whooping cough, measles, mumps and whatever, the authorities say,, “We have a highly effective vaccine if it is given on time with boosters,” then “This is an excellent vaccine when 3 or 4 boosters are given, and adults are revaccinated.” Or in the case of whooping cough, introducing an all-together new vaccine. There is a new nasal vaccine in the pipeline for newborns, which will be given alongside the already ineffective whooping cough vaccine series in childhood. This will no doubt be touted as a wonderful combination.

Eradication target dates are constantly moved forward, and the unvaccinated or the vaccine refusers are blamed for all outbreaks. Or in the case of Pakistan, they are branded TERRORISTS or RELIGIOUS FANATICS for not wanting their children to have 30 oral polio vaccines by age 5. I have outlined in a PREVIOUS BLOG, just what is really going on in India and how her people are being terrorized by WHO and CDC as the rate of paralysis continues to skyrocket.

I believe that when diseases disappear from sight, the disappearance is never solely by virtue of the vaccine. Yet the vaccine always gets the credit, because the blind faith in vaccines is prioritized over the scientific evidence. Evidence to the contrary of the value of vaccination is consistently snuffed out and kept away from the mainstream media, so that the herd never hears a peep of the truth. Instead, they get the “herd immunity” sound bite, which gives undeserved credit to the risk-benefit ratio of vaccination. Inside the web of half-truths and misinformation, the vaccine religion somehow justifies the public display of resentment and fear of the unvaccinated.

Vaccine blogpost about Dr Salk (polio)

Vaccines are a really controversial thing, and they are discussed more and more now, make sure that you get information not just from Big Pharma, so I wanted to share some articles, blogposts and videos now and then – this is a blogpost from Marco Cáceres di Iorio…



History is a powerful thing. If you accurately tell the story of an event that occurred, you get one picture, one understanding of it. Leave one tiny little detail out, however, and the whole picture changes. You can get thousands of details right, but get one wrong, or simply omit telling it, and an historical event can become so distorted that it becomes a lie. Take the story of the Salk inactivated polio vaccine (IPV). During the first half of the 1950s, Jonas Salk, MD developed the first injectable vaccine against polio containing inactivated, or “killed”, strains of the poliovirus.

As a dead, rather than live, virus vaccine, Dr. Salk’s IPV supposedly carried no risk of giving recipients “vaccine-associated polio paralysis.”1 According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “IPV is produced from wild-type poliovirus strains of each serotype that have been inactivated (killed) with formalin.”2

Here’s that little detail, though. The poliovirus that Dr. Salk killed with formalin, or formaldehyde, were not always killed; they sometimes only appeared to be killed.

Live poliovirus, which was put in an injectable vaccine, would appear to be inactivated right after it was made, but sometimes it would ‘resurrect’ in the vial… In essence, the formaldehyde did not kill off all the polioviruses in these vaccines, which led to live polio viruses being injected. As a result, more people developed paralysis from the vaccine in 1955 than would have developed it from a wild, normal natural poliovirus.3


Field trials for the Salk vaccine were conducted on more than 1,800,000 children in the United States in 1954.4 Sponsored by the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis (NFIP), now known as the March of Dimes, “623,972 schoolchildren were injected with vaccine or placebo, and more than a million others participated as ‘observed’ controls.’5

On April 12, 1955, Thomas Francis Jr., MD, director of the Poliomyelitis Vaccine Evaluation Center at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, announced to the world that the Salk vaccine was “safe, effective, and potent,”—that it was “up to 90%” effective in preventing paralytic polio. Dr. Francis had been one of Dr. Salk’s professors at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health Department of Epidemiology where Salk did his postgraduate training.4

During mid-April of 1955, about 400,000 people—mostly schoolchildren—in the U.S. were vaccinated with the Salk vaccine manufactured by Cutter Laboratories.6 It turns out that more than 200,000 of these children, living in five western and midwestern states (Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada and New Mexico7), were injected with vaccines “in which the process of inactivating the live virus proved to be defective.” The Cutter-produced vaccines ended up causing 40,000 cases of polio. It severely paralyzed 200 children and killed 10.8

The first of these cases to be reported was that of a young girl named Susan Pierce, who had received the vaccine on April 18, 1955.7

Five days later, she developed fever and neck stiffness. Six days later, her left arm was paralyzed. Seven days later, she was placed in an iron lung, and nine days later, she was dead.7

In his book The Cutter Incident: How America’s First Polio Vaccine Led to the Growing Vaccine Crisis, Paul Offit, MD writes, “Seventy-five percent of Cutter’s victims were paralyzed for the rest of their lives.” A team led by epidemiologisit Alexander Langmuir of the Communicable Diseases Center (now the CDC) in Atlanta, GA determined that “the disease caused by Cutter’s vaccine was worse than the disease caused by natural polio virus,” adds Dr. Offit.7

Children given Cutter’s vaccine were more likely to be paralyzed in their arms, more likely to suffer severe and permanent paralysis, more likely to require breathing assistance in iron lungs, and more likely to die than children naturally infected with polio.7

The so-called “Cutter Incident” led to the recall of the Cutter vaccine and the eventual replacement of the Salk IPV with the attenuated (weakened) live oral polio vaccine (OPV) developed by Albert Sabin, MD and introduced in 1963. (A modified inactivated Salk vaccine was re-introduced in the 1990s after the only cases of polio occurring in the U.S. were vaccine strain polio cases because live OPV can cause vaccine strain polio in the recipient or a close contact of a recently vaccinated person shedding live vaccine strain polio virus in body fluids.)8

But the fact that some improperly inactivated lots of the original polio vaccine paralyzed and killed American children was concealed from the public for a long time.

In their book Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and The Forgotten History, Suzanne Humphries, MD and Roman Bystrianyk write, “You may be wondering how this information was concealed from the public for nearly fifty years. Congressman Percy Priest ordered and chaired a full investigation of the vaccine controversy.”)9 According to them, Congressman Priest, who represented the 6th District of Tennessee, admitted in 1956 that,

… in the previous year (1955) many responsible persons had felt that the public should be spared the ordeal of ‘knowledge about controversy.’ If word ever got out that the Public Health Service had actually done something damaging to the health of the American people, the consequences would b terrible… We felt that no lasting good could come to science or the public if the Public Health Services were discredited.”9

Two key points to note here. First, the problem with the Cutter-produced vaccine should have come as a surprise to the scientists and public health officials who were familiar with the development of the Salk IPV. According to Dr. Humphries and Bystrianyk:

The Salk invention was an injectable, supposedly formaldehyde-inactivated version of poliovirus vaccine. There were serious problems with the viral inactivation process that were known by insiders from the outset of the vaccine’s development.9

Unfortunately, whenever scientists involved in the vaccine’s development raised concerns that poliovirus had not been fully killed, they were “rapidly subdued.”9

As a result of ignoring the warnings by highly qualified scientists who repeatedly and publicly explained why and how the inactivation process was flawed from the beginning, the vaccine virus needlessly infected, paralyzed, and killed children and their household contacts.9

Secondly, Cutter Laboratories was not the only manufacturer of the the Salk IPV. Wyeth Laboratories also produced a defective Salk vaccine that caused paralysis. Other pharmaceutical companies are believed to have done so, as well. But only Cutter’s vaccine was recalled. This means that, potentially, tens of millions of doses of improperly inactivated “live” Salk vaccine were sold and injected into children in the U.S. and around the world until the “inactivated” Salk vaccine was replaced by the live oral Sabin vaccine in the early-1960s.

This may help explain, at least partially, why the cases of polio in the U.S. increased by 50% from 1957 to 1958, and by 80% between 1958 and 1959.10 According to Bernard Greenberg, PhD, head of the Department of Biostatistics at the University of North Carolina School of Public Health:

In five New England states cases of polio roughly doubled after polio vaccine was introduced. Nevertheless in the midst of the polio panic of the 1950s, with pressure to find a magic bullet, statistics were manipulated by health authorities to give the quite the opposite impression.10

Keep in mind that these dramatic increases in polio following the introduction of the Salk IPV occurred shortly after the U.S. government had already significantly relaxed its guidelines for diagnosing polio. In 1954, the government redefined polio. I wrote about this other little detail of history that has been widely overlooked in my article “Polio Wasn’t Vanquished, It Was Redefined.”11 Dr. Greenberg explained this classic example of government sleight of hand…

In order to qualify for classification as paralytic poliomyelitis, the patient had to exhibit paralytic symptoms for at least 60 days after the onset of the disease. Prior to 1954, the patient had to exhibit paralytic symptoms for only 24 hours. Laboratory confirmation and the presence of residual paralysis were not required. After 1954, residual paralysis was determined 10 to 20 days and again 50 to 70 days after the onset of the disease. This change in definition meant that in 1955 we started reporting a new disease, namely, paralytic poliomyelitis with a longer lasting paralysis.12

We can only imagine how much worse the official number of polio cases would have been during the second half of the 1950s had the same diagnosis standard continued to be followed, rather than arbitrarily changed in midstream. By any measure, the early Salk polio vaccine campaigns cannot be termed an unqualified “success.” Yet, since the story has been so repeatedly, utterly inaccurately told, our understanding of the history of the polio vaccine “miracle” is that it is one of the greatest scientific achievements of all time. And, as we have seen with the Sabin live oral polio vaccine that continues to cause vaccine strain polio cases around the world, there are big questions about how high the price has been—and will continue to be—for using that polio vaccine as well.

History is indeed a powerful thing. If you teach it wrong for more than half a century, it is hard to unteach, because a particular version of a story can become so ingrained in the public’s collective memory that few can accept that what we’ve come to believe to be an unquestioned scientific truth is, in fact, a myth.

And if that sacred cow is an illusion, then what else may we have gotten wrong along the way? Suddenly, mainstream vaccine science doesn’t feel so certain, so… scientific.

Ett par blogginlägg av Sven-Erik Nordin, angående t ex cancer, gurkmeja, kokosolja osv

Det har ju varit kalabalik på diverse sociala medier och SVT ett tag nu, efter “avslöjandet” att hälsokostaffärer säljer gurkmeja och kokosolja, som SVT uttryckte det, “under olagliga förespeglingar” osv…
Här är ett par blogginlägg av Sven-Erik Nordin som ger lite nyans till debatten…


En förfärande brottslighet!

Den fullkomligt sanslösa debatten om hälsokostprodukter fortsatte i kväll (24/10) i Aktuellt. Självklart skall personal i hälsokostbutiker ge korrekt information om sina produkter. Strängt taget borde också våra läkare ha samma krav på sig, när de skriver ut mediciner eller t.ex. föreslår kirurgiska ingrepp. Nu spelade man åter upp de ”olagligheter” man filmat med dold kamera, då personal i flera hälsokostbutiker sagt att kokosolja och gurkmeja skulle kunna vara bra mot Alzheimer. Föregående kväll hade man bjudit in professor Lennart Minthon som ”expert” – och han visade sig totalt okunnig åtminstone om gurkmeja. Nu hade man bjudit in enhetschef Susanne Zakrisson från Läkemedelsverket, och hon tycktes inte veta mer om ämnet.

Men nu gällde det uppenbarligen inte frågan om huruvida dessa produkter var effektiva mot Alzheimer eller inte – utan i stället att personal i hälsokostbutikerna hade påstått det, och därigenom begått ett lagbrott. Man skulle annars kunna tänka sig, att det åtminstone vore en förmildrande omständighet, om gurkmeja och kokosolja nu faktiskt påverkade hälsan i positiv riktning – vilket dessa produkter bevisligen gör, även om det än kanske saknas riktigt hållbara bevis för att de kan bota Alzheimer.

Men ingen försökte ens visa, att någon som köpt och konsumerat kokosolja eller gurkmeja skulle ha skadats på något sätt, eller att någon som köpt produkterna därmed skulle ha undandragit sig effektiv läkarvård (som i detta fall inte finns). Det kanske mest uppseendeväckande var det klipp från föregående kvälls inslag, där professor Lennart Minthon påstod att den Alzheimerpatient som använder gurkmeja ”dör fortare”! Jag skulle vilja se de bevis han kan åberopa för detta fullständigt sanslösa påstående! Jag tror inte man kan hitta någon enda person som skadats av gurkmeja eller kokosolja. Däremot dör människor dagligen i andra sammanhang av de ”godkända läkemedel” som läkarna skriver ut recept på!

Nu är säkert många okunniga svenskar upprörda över detta ”fusk” inom hälsovårdsbranschen. Men innan man blir alltför upprörd borde man begrunda följande:

Kan läkarna bota Alzheimer? Svar: Nej!

Kan gurkmeja bota Alzheimer? Vi vet inte – men modern forskning visar att det mycket väl kan vara så.

Har läkarnas bromsmediciner mot Alzheimer några biverkningar? Ja, många och delvis svåra!

Har gurkmeja och kokosolja några biverkningar? Nej, inte mer än att alltför stort intag av båda möjligen kan innebära att man blir en smula ”lös i magen”!

Är läkarnas Alzheimermediciner dyra? Ja, tusentals kronor i månaden! Den totala kostnaden för landets ca 160 000 demenssjuka beräknades här om året till drygt 60 miljarder kronor (d.v.s. ca 400 000 kr per person och år), varav medicinerna utgör en betydande del.

Är gurkmeja och kokosolja dyra produkter? Nej – och patienten betalar själv, varför kostnaden för kommuner och landsting blir 0 kr!

Till saken hör sedan också, att bristen på läkare som bekant är minst sagt betydande, och varför man då nödvändigtvis skall belasta läkarkåren ytterligare genom att slussa alla Alzheimerpatienter via läkare – som dessutom inte kan erbjuda någon bot – borde för de flesta anses helt obegripligt!

Nu talade man om hur viktigt det var med INFORMATION! Javisst! Men då skall det vara korrekt och saklig information, som berättar att läkarna än inte har något botemedel mot Alzheimer, att bromsmedicinerna är svindyra och har avsevärda och plågsamma biverkningar – samt att gurkmeja och kokosolja är generellt hälsobefrämjande, sannolikt lindrar verkningarna av de flesta neurodegenerativa sjukdomar som t.ex. Alzheimer och inte har några allvarliga biverkningar!

När får vi höra den informationen?

Och här är ett till blogginlägg:

“På förekommen anledning lägger jag ut denna långa text:

Varför förebyggs och botas inte cancer?

Som de flesta vet har förekomsten av cancer ökat dramatiskt de senaste decennierna – trots att ett oändligt antal miljarder under denna tid satsats på cancerforskning. Förutom att cancer är en enorm inkomstkälla för de stora läkemedelsbolagen, varför deras intresse av att ”lösa cancerns gåta” är obefintligt, så kan man också identifiera några andra orsaker till misslyckandet.

För det första satsas nästan inte något på att förhindra cancerns uppkomst – utom möjligen att man försöker minska rökning, att man lyckats avskaffa hanteringen av asbest och några andra klart cancerframkallande produkter. Men direkt inom den medicinska professionen har inte mycket hänt. Där tycks man enbart vara inställd på att försöka BOTA (hittills med klent resultat) och inte alls ägna sig åt att FÖREBYGGA. Detta gäller för övrigt inte bara cancer, utan också andra allvarliga sjukdomar.

För det andra tycks man i hög grad vara inställda på att hitta GENETISKA lösningar på cancer. Detta måste anses vara mycket märkligt, eftersom våra gener är desamma nu som de var innan förekomsten av cancer började öka! Dessutom har ju disciplinen epigenetik på senare tid dramatiskt ändrat kunskapen om våra geners betydelse och visat att miljöfaktorer i hög grad kan förändra våra geners konkreta uttryck. Med tanke på att vår livsmiljö och vår kost under den aktuella tidsrymden däremot förändrats drastiskt, så hade en inriktning av forskningen mot sådana orsaker varit den självklara. Några föregångsmän finns det dock. Så har t.ex. den amerikanske läkaren Thomas Seyfried i sin forskning klart visat, att den genetiska mutationen vid cancer inte är den initiala orsaken, utan kommer i efterhand. Men hans resultat verkar inte beaktas!

För det tredje tycks dagens läkare mer eller mindre omedvetna om upptäckten som gjorde att den tyske professorn Otto Warburg fick Nobelpriset i medicin 1931. Han visade i sin forskning, att cancerceller har en avvikande metabolism, jämfört med vanliga celler. Förenklat kan man beskriva det som att deras mitokondrier (de små enheter i cellerna, där energi skapas) är defekta och använder sig av ineffektiv fermentering (jäsning) av glukos i stället för förbränning med hjälp av syre. Detta innebär bl.a. att de behöver 20 – 30 ggr mer glukos (socker) än vanliga celler. Dessutom kan de ENDAST använda glukos för sin energiförsörjning, medan de flesta av kroppens övriga celler kan använda det alternativa bränslet ketoner (förenklat en nedbrytningsprodukt av fett). Denna fatala kunskapsbrist hos läkarna gör, att de ofta bidrar till att optimera möjligheterna för cancerceller att utvecklas – genom att t.ex. uppmana cancerpatienter att äta en kolhydratrik föda! Upprörande!

För övrigt tycks Warburg under senare delen av sitt liv blivit övertygad om, att orsaken till att celler övergick till att bli cancerceller var förgiftning – av t.ex. giftiga kemikalier eller olika former av strålning. Ingen kan förneka, att vi i dag i hög grad utsätts för just dessa faktorer i vår livsmiljö!

För det fjärde verkar de flesta läkare helt omedvetna om, att det finns naturliga produkter som effektivt och skonsamt motverkar cancer (t.ex. gurkmeja, ingefära, aroniabär, kolloidalt silver), samt att cancerpatienter nästan alltid har brist på viktiga mineraler som jod, magnesium, selen och zink, samt vitaminer som C- och D-vitamin och några fler.
För det femte tycks läkarna vara helt främmande för tanken att vårt immunförsvar, om det fungerar optimalt, också skyddar oss mot cancer – precis som det skyddar oss mot bakterier, virus och andra skadliga mikrober. En kost som innehåller alla nödvändiga vitaminer, mineraler och spårämnen för att vår kropp (inkl. immunförsvaret) skall fungera på bästa sätt torde vara en av de effektivaste metoderna för att förhindra uppkomsten av cancer.

Detta verkar inte läkarna ha förstått, och man kan t.o.m. få höra, att ”kosten inte har någon betydelse för cancer”. Kosten är tvärt om en avgörande faktor för vår hälsa – vilket redan Hippokrates för omkring 2400 år sedan påpekade. I dag tycks läkekonsten ha tappat den självklara insikten!”

Article by Maddy Harland: Monsanto buys up heirloom seed suppliers


Monsanto Buys Up Heirloom Seed Suppliers

Maddy Harland
Monday, 30th June 2014

Monsanto is buying up heirloom seed companies and trademarks. Maddy Harland discovers who is buying what and how to avoid Monsanto. She explores why what we buy can be a form of positive activism.

The NM Tree and Garden Center located in Rio Rancho, New Mexico has discovered that Monsanto is buying heirloom seed companies. They are also buying the trademarks to a number of heirloom seeds. This means that you may think you are supporting an heirloom seed company but in reality the company is owned by Monsanto. The seeds themselves are still non-GMO and heirloom and they can be saved at the end of the harvest and resown next season, but you are still giving money to Monsanto.

Monsanto are also buying trademarks so that no matter where you buy certain seeds, they get money from it. Here is a LINK to the trademarks and seed companies Monsanto supply and ones that they do not supply in the USA.

Here’s some tips on how to avoid Monsanto.

We need to all do our research when buying seeds (or any organically labelled product for that matter).

In Europe we have witnessed a proactive corporate programme to buy up ethical/organic companies. L’Oreal now own The Body Shop and have a poor record for animal testing. Green and Blacks fair trade chocolate were bought in 2006 by Cadbury who were then acquired by Kraft Foods, one of the huge food multi-nationals. Rachel’s Organic, founded by Welsh farmers, is now a subsidiary of French company Lactalis.

This is a deliberate strategy – so much so that Triodos Bank actually have a European fund to help small organic companies stay independent and resist being bought up.

Why are small organic/heirloom marques being acquired by the big global corporates? Firstly, there is a commercial market for them. Secondly, what you own you can control. Thirdly, if you are a vast industrial magnate and own one of these companies you can marginalise its market if you wish.

Ethics in Action

As consumers we have the power to first support our local producers and make sure they stay in business. Then we need to support larger ethical, organic companies like Yeo Valley who produce organic dairy products and still remain independently owned by the family who started the company. Sometimes this means spending more money on a product. But we have a choice: Do we want to eat a chocolate bar with cacao picked by children in a system that pays the farmer a subsistence wage or do we want an artisanal bar that costs much more but tastes better and is fairly traded? Do we buy yoghurt from a large corporate who is trading under an acquired organic brand or from a local supplier or a family owned national organic supplier?

Permaculture is all about Earthcare, Peoplecare and Fair shares. It is therefore not only about what we grow but what we buy. Shopping is a form of activism. We all do it to a greater or lesser degree. We have to activate our consciences.

About The NM Tree and Garden Center

The NM Tree and Garden Center is a small nursery located in Rio Rancho. NMT & GC is owned by a husband and wife partnership who have always loved gardening and growing. Everything they grow is organic and sustainable. All their seeds are heirloom and will never be GMO. We hope this blog will inspire you to start growing your own food and planting trees. Contact us with any questions and for ordering information.

Monsanto Takeover in Europe

Europe may have opened the gates to Monsanto to grow genetically modified crops. Due to an accepted proposal by the EU Environment Council last week, GM crops could be planted across Europe as soon as next year.

Even worse, the proposal could give Monsanto and other biotech giants the power to overturn decisions made by democratically-elected governments to ban GM crops.

The European Parliament can still reject this decision. With MEPs voting on the issue soon, we need to make sure they hear from citizens across the continent to reject this Monsanto-backed proposal. Sign THIS PETITION to show our MEPs this is not what Europe wants.

Artikel: Ulla Gabay, om citronsyra igen (7 augusti 2016)

Här är en till artikel av Ulla Gabay om citronsyra, hon skriver alltid informativt och kunnigt, det är alltid intressant att läsa hennes artiklar!  


DN:s medicinreporter Amina Manzoor klipper och klistrar om citronsyra

KOMMENTAR. DN:s medicinreporter Amina Manzoor gick i förra veckan ut och sågade nio påstådda medicinska myter som cirkulerar i sociala medier. Däribland tillsatt citronsyra E330 i livsmedel. ”Att göra det genom att i stort sett klippa och klistra argument från Livsmedelsverkets hemsida ger inte mycket trovärdighet.” Det skriver hälsojournalisten Ulla Gabay i denna kommentar.

Text: Ulla Gabay, UllaGabay.com

Låt oss börja med Amina Manzoors egen text i DN under rubriken:

Nej, citronsyra ger inte allergi

DN: Nio medicinska myter - Amina Mazoor”I många livsmedel finns det tillsatt citronsyra, E330, som ett antioxidationsmedel. Den kan till exempel framställas från frukter som innehåller mycket citronsyra eller genom jäsning med hjälp av bland annat mögelsvampen Aspergillus niger.

I sociala medier sprids med jämna mellanrum artiklar om att kemiskt framställd citronsyra kan ligga bakom allergi. Men det saknas vetenskapliga belägg för det. Allergi orsakas av proteiner och citronsyra är inget, och innehåller inget, protein. Dessutom framställer kroppens celler själv citronsyra. Förutom allt detta är det också förbjudet att använda stammar av mögelsvampen som producerar gifter, det innebär att citronsyran som vi får i oss inte är farlig.

Slutsats: Det finns inget skäl att vara orolig för maten om det står på innehållsförteckningen att den innehåller E330 eller citronsyra. Den som får allergiska reaktioner på mat borde i stället kontakta vården och utredas för andra matallergier.”

Överkänslighet hör till bilden

Manzoor må ha rätt i att citronsyra i sig inte ger just allergi, men när det handlar om mat och tillsatser finns det en övergripande överkänslighet som i sammanhanget måste tas på stort allvar. Även om allergi (omedelbar respons via nativa försvaret) och intolerans (fördröjd respons via adaptiva försvaret t ex genom att matsmältningen inte fungerar) som härstammar från våra två olika immunförsvar, kan effekterna på sikt för matintoleranta bli autoimmuna med livslånga kroniska sjukdomstillstånd som följd.

Alla har inte kunskap om skillnaden mellan allergi och intolerans och kan därför lätt missuppfatta information som ges, med allvarliga följder för hälsan. Ett sådant exempel är just Manzoors inlägg runt citronsyra, E330. Som reporter är grundfundamentet att se till alla aspekter som kan spela in i ett så viktigt sammanhang som kostens påverkan på hälsan.

Att som Manzoor i det här fallet luta sig mot Livsmedelsverkets hemsida i frågan, uppfyller inte de kraven. Den enda länk i texten för att stärka sitt tvärsäkra påstående att ”citronsyran som vi får i oss inte är farlig” leder till just den sidan. (Jämför gärna texterna.)

Kan vi då inte lita på Livsmedelsverket?

Citronsyra och Livsmedelsverket, Ulla GabayLivsmedelsverket har en lång historia med personer i jäv-ställning bland sina experter. Till exempel köpta professorer från universiteten. Så kallade adjungerade professorer, vars löner betalas av ett företag, en organisation eller annan utomstående. En tradition som tog rejäl fart under 1990-talet [1]. En win/win-situation för alla inblandade: universitetet får gratis arbetskraft, den adjungerade får en prestigefylld titel (utan prefixet adjungerad/tillfällig) och den som betalar lönen får en lojal kraft på plats att utnyttja i sina kommersiella syften.

Den före detta överläkaren Björn Hammarskjöld tog ut jävsdeklarationer för Livsmedelsverkets expertgrupp för 2016, för råd gällande näring (nutrition) och folkhälsa, och fann att flertalet hade kopplingar till både livsmedels- och läkemedelsindustrin. Artikeln publicerades här på NewsVoice 26 januari i år [2]. Det är sorgligt att se att en medicinsk reporter vid Sveriges största morgontidning, i likhet med Livsmedelsverket, mer eller mindre aningslöst går Livsmedelsindustrins ärenden.

Kroppens citronsyra kontra matens

En vanlig väg att få konsumenter att acceptera syntetiska kemikalietillsatser är att de finns naturligt i kroppen. Argumentet används även i det här fallet av Manzoor/Livsmedelsverket. Den citronsyra vi själva tillverkar, inom ramen för kroppens biologiska system, går inte att jämföra med den industriellt framställda. Den kroppsliga ingår i det som kallas för Citric Acid Cycle (eller Krebs cykel), där citronsyra bildas som en komponent i tillverkningen av energi, inom ramen för cellandningen. Processen utspelas sluten, inuti celler i mitokondria, och har en viktig funktion för ämnesomsättningen [3].

Swisha-UllaGabayReaktioner mot mat, kemikalier och andra syntetiska tillsatser sker till största delen i det utrymme som finns mellan cellerna. Inte minst i mag- tarmkanalen som dygnet runt har direkt kontakt med allt som kommer ner. En miljö som kontinuerligt utsätt för överbelastning av flitigt använda syntetiska kemikalier i olika kostprodukter.

Där Livsmedelsverket inte tar någon hänsyn till vare sig cocktaileffekten eller kemiska reaktioner vid livsmedelsframställningen. Inte heller tänker man där på den mängd det kan bli under en dag med ämnen som E330, som finns i var och varannan produkt i livsmedelsbutikernas hyllor. Man mäter bara gränsvärden per produkt, enligt en beräknad konsumtion per dag.

Artikel av Margareta Lundström: DN sprider medicinmyter som Big Pharma vill att du ska gå på

Amina Manzoor skrev en artikel åt DN – “Nio medicinska myter du inte ska gå på”, jag kommer tyvärr inte åt artikeln, man måste betala för att komma åt den, men det finns en massa fel i artikeln, och det bemöttes av Margareta Lundström, den artikeln kan jag dela i alla fall, så man kan förstå vad AM har gjort för tankevurpor (förmodligen väldigt medvetna såna)…


DEBATT. Reaktionerna på Amina Manzoors artikel ”Nio medicinska myter du inte skall gå på” fortsätter att komma in efter semesterns slut.  Skribenten Margareta Lundström är en raden. Hon skickade ett brev till DN:s chefred Peter Wolodarski om DN i allmänhet och Manzoors artikel i synnerhet. NewsVoice publicerar brevet i debattartikelformat. 

Text och foto: Margareta Lundström | Originaladressen för DN:s artikel: ”Nio medicinska myter du inte ska gå på” | Samma artikel på Web Archive

Margareta LundströmI artikeln om nio påstådda medicinska myter pådyvlade Manzoor läsarna det som hon ansåg vara vanföreställningar, vilka hon sedan resolut tillbakavisade som myter. Texten är så enfaldig att jag tror att den enklaste veckotidning skulle ha hållit sig för god att publicera ett den, men Manzoor är säkert inte enfaldig. Hon vet vad hon gör.

Hon hade ett uppdrag för Läkemedelsindustrin på den förment neutrala nättidningen LäkemedelsVärlden och hon fullföljer tydligen det uppdraget på DN. Manzoor anställning på DN var en del av, men inte hela anledningen till att jag sade upp min prenumeration.

Artikeln är gratisreklam för en korrupt mångmiljardindustri och pretentiöst placerad under rubriken ”Vetenskap”.

Tyvärr är artikeln förenlig med DN:s förvandling till ett propagandaorgan för politiska och ekonomiska intressen. Då krävs det både desinformation och undanhållande av information.

Men underskatta inte läsarnas förståndsgåvor eller vår möjlighet att skaffa oss information på annat håll. Bli inte förvånade över att vi överger er.

Kopplingen vaccin och autism

Amina Manzoor påstår att hon vet att kombinationsvaccinet mot mässling, påssjuka och röda hund inte orsakar autism och att vår villfarelse om detta samband kan skyllas på den ”forskningsfuskande britten Andrew Wakefield”.

Amina Manzoor: Nio medicinska myter, DN

Som referenser anger Manzoor sin kollega på tidningen, Karin Bojs. Karin Bojs källa i sin tur tycks vara Rupert Murdochs tabloidpress. Så här skriver Karin Bojs 2011:

“Han (Wakefield) har ljugit, plågat barn, skrämt upp föräldrar, kanske bidragit till att ovaccinerade barn dör av mässling och själv tjänat miljoner.”

För att ytterligare stärka sitt påståenderefererar Manzoor till vaccinindustrins och medias absoluta favoritstudie som alltid framhålls som bevis för att samband mellan vaccin och autism saknas. En studie som även Karin Bojs helt okritiskt slukat med hull och hår.

Studien har beslagits med att presentera motsägelsefulla fakta och med att utesluta viktiga data. Manzoor underlåter att berätta att ansvarig för studien är bland andra den famöse dr Poul Thorsen. Thorsen är förvunnen med forskningspengar och efterlyst av polis.

Tre övriga i forskningsteamet är Mads Melbye MD, Anders Hviid, MSc och Jan Wohlfahrt M. Sc. , samtliga anställda på Statens Seruminstitut i Danmark och involverade i tillverkning och distribution av vaccin. I samma team ingick också Diana Schendel, Ph.D, som vid tiden för studien var anställd av Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, (CDC). Studien finansierades av CDC, som har ett ekonomiskt intresse av att öka användning av MPR-vaccin.

CDC, köper vaccinet från Merck och säljer det vidare till de enskilda delstaternas hälsomyndigheter. På samma sätt är vårt statliga Läkemedelsverk finansiellt beroende av läkemedelsindustrin.

Nyligen har 12 av de av media och myndigheter mest citerade studierna som fritar vaccinet från att orsaka autism granskats. Granskningen har gjorts av Brian Hooker, PhD, PE för Alliance for Natural Health (ANH-USA) De visar efter granskning att de inte bevisar någonting. Samtliga är finansierade av dem som har ett finansiellt intresse av ett resultat som avvisar samband.

Andrew Wakefield

Dr Andrew Wakefield är en högt meriterad gastroenterologist med många vetenskapliga studier bakom sig varav tre har utförts tillsammans med svenska forskare. Professor Anders Ekbom på Karolinska var en av dem som ingick i samma forskningsteam som Wakefield.

Studier av dr Wakefield och studier som stöder hans forskning

Dr Wakefield spåddes en lysande akademisk framtid. Men han blev ett hot mot en mångmiljardindustri genom att vid en liten fallstudie uppmärksamma ett tänkbart samband mellan tarmproblem, autism och ett vaccin. Men då slog läkemedelsindustrin och dess hantlangare media till.

NewsVoice dokumentärfilm om Andrew Wakefield (YouTube)

DN underlåter att berätta för läsarna att denne läkare som blivit fråntagen sin legitimation, fått löpa gatlopp i pressen och tvingats flytta från sitt hemland England, nu reser världen runt och hyllas som en hjälte. När han föreläser får han stående ovationer Hans samproducerade film VAXXED from Cover up to Catastrophe, drar som en prärieeld med fulla hus över USA. Kan streamas på nätet inom kort.

William ThompsonDN underlåter att delge läsarna att en högt uppsatt forskare på CDC dr William Thompson 2014 offentligt erkände att både Merck och CDC under 15 år känt till och dolt det faktum att vaccin mot mässling, påssjuka och röda hund orsakar autism framför allt hos afroamerikanska pojkar.

DN undanhåller oss också att ett antal av före detta anställda inom läkemedel-/vaccinsindustrin gått ut offentligt och tagit avstånd från vaccinindustrins verksamhet och deklarerar att de inte vaccinerar sina barn.

Vi vaccineras från vaggan till graven, ändå anser DN att frågor som detta inte är av allmänintresse och värda att ta upp.

Vaccin räddar liv – miljoner liv enligt Manzoor! Men statistiken och historien säger något helt annat om man orkar ta reda på det. Det verkar vara väldigt svårt för DN:s vetenskapsjournalister att ta reda på fakta själva. Det är naturligtvis enklare att upprepa vad andra säger och referera till den av den medicinindustriella kartellen styrda WHO.

Vacciner är säkra påstår Manzoor. Hur vet hon det? Säkerheten har ju aldrig har prövats? Vaccinindustrin medger själv att det finns risker med vaccin och var och en av oss kan ju läsa på vaccinets bipacksedel.

Vacciner är effektiva påstår hon. Hur förklarar hon återkommande mässlings- eller påssjukautbrott hos fullt vaccinerade personer?

Men faktum är att vi har en autismepidemi som och om trenden fortsätter då beräknas att vartannat barn är autistiskt i USA år 2025 . Faktum är också att amerikanska barn har fått 69 vaccinationsdoser innan det fyllt 18 år. Faktum är också att amerikanska barn är de mest drabbade av kroniska sjukdomar i världen. Faktum är också att spädbarnsdödligheten ligger på 34.de plats i USA jämfört med motsvarande utvecklade länder. Sverige ligger på andra plats efter Singapore. Tillfällighet? Samband? Har Manzoor funderat över detta?


Manzoor påstår också att det inte är insektsmedel som orsakar microcefali i Brasilien och att det råder vetenskaplig konsensus om att orsaken är zikaviruset.

När media använder begreppet vetenskaplig konsensus är det ett sätt att manipulera oss. Ingen vill ju göra sig dum och gå emot vetenskaplig konsensus. Så får man slut på diskussionen och kan driva sin tes utan inblandning av stolliga konspirationsteoretiker, som kanske skulle påstå att det är en ”man made” sjukdom.

Men hur förklarar den vetenskapliga konsensus att det inträffar 25 000 fall av microcefali årligen i USA? Eller att i epicentrum för tragedin i Brasilien hittar man bara zikavirus hos 10 % av de drabbade? Eller alla barn som föds med normala hjärnor av mödrar som bär på antikroppar mot zikaviruset?


Manzoor påstår också att det inte finns några kända risker för Aspartam.

NewsVoice svar sukralos DNFDA har vägrat godkänna Aspartam vid fyra ansökningstillfällen. Redan 1975 konstaterades att Asparatam var ett nervgift. Alla tänkbara knep togs till för att genomdriva ett godkännande. Oresonabla medlemmar i den granskande kommitteen byttes ut. Tillverkaren presenterade en studie (The Bresslel Report) som visade sig vara så manipulerad att det faktiskt ledde till åtal.

Men trägen vinner. När Ronald Reagan blev president var en av hans allierade miljardären Donald Rumpsfeld, som var VD för GD Searle Company som tillverkar Aspartam.

Det var så Aspartam blev ofarligt och utgör nu en jätteindustri tillsammans med tillverkare av liknande konstgjorda sötningsmedel.

”Man faller inte ner död efter en lightläsk, men det är det långsiktiga skadorna som är allvarliga”, säger professor emeritus Göran Petersson, Miljö Kemi på Chalmers.

Upptäckaren av en huskur så betecknar Manzoor Linus Pauling, tvåfaldig nobelpristagare. Ett rekord i understatement. Manzoor följer en tradition hos det medicinindustriella komplexet att förringa Linus Pauling och hans forskning på C-vitaminet.

Pauling var biokemist och han skulle enligt det medicinska skrået inte blanda sig i deras monopol med dess lönande kontakter med läkemedelsindustrin.

Dr Paulings huskur används i tysthet vid cancerbehandling för att förstärka effekten av cytostatika.

Kardiologen Thomas E. Levy var i Stockholm i våras och föreläste om C-vitaminets stora betydelse för hjärt- och kärlhälsa? Han är inte ensam om att föra Linus Paulings arv vidare. Var var då DN: medicinjournalist?

Manzoor har synpunkter på cancer och kost. Det är rätt som Manzoor skriver, att cancer är en mycket komplex sjukdom och har många orsaker. Just därför tycker jag att Manzoor skall avstå från att ta upp detta ångestladdade ämne i detta ytliga sammanhang.

Manzoor är proaktiv och bemötte redan i artikeln konspirationsteoretiker. Om jag har förmågan att se sammanhang utnyttja tidigare erfarenheter och se bakom det som synes ske. Kunna göra analogier och jämförelser och ställa frågan, vem tjänar? Då är jag stolt över att kallas konspirationsteoretiker.

Jag betraktar mig också som dissident i förhållande till DN:s världsbild.

Manzoor försvar för läkemedelsindustrin är generande naivt. En industri vars produkter är orsak till den tredje vanligaste dödsorsaken.

Så här skriver professor Peter C. Gøtzsche, chef för det oberoende Chochrane Institutet i Köpenhamn och författare till boken Dödliga mediciner och organiserad brottslighet, hur läkemedelsindustrin har korrumperat sjuk-och hälsovården. 

Hans bok fick första pris i kategorin ”Medicinska grundvalar” av British Medical Association Book Awards 2014.

Dödliga mediciner och organiserad brottslighet av Peter C Gøtzsche”År 2012 fick jag veta att de tio största läkemedelsföretagen i världen begår upprepade och allvarliga brott till en sådan grad att de uppfyller kriterierna för organiserad brottslighet enligt amerikansk lag. Jag hittade också hur stora konsekvenserna av dessa brott är. Detta innebär kolossala stölder av offentliga medel och de bidrar i hög grad till att våra läkemedel är den tredje vanligaste dödsorsaken efter hjärtsjukdomar och cancer.”

Dr Richard Horton som är chefredaktör för en av världens mest erkända medicinska tidskrifter, the Lancet, varnar för att hälften av alla medicinska studier baseras på pseudovetenskap. Konsekvensen blir att många vacciner och läkemedel är exempel på kvacksalveri.

Marcia Angell f.d., chefredaktör för New England Journal of Medicine”: skriver

Marcia Angell - Wikimedia“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine”

Why Most Published Research Findings are False” är det mest nedladdade dokument genom tiderna på PLoS, Public Library of Medicines peer-reviewed, open access-tidskriftJohn P. A Ioannidis förklarar i detalj hur:

”Det kan bevisas att de flesta påstådda forskningsresultaten är falska.” Och att ”för många av dagens vetenskapliga områden och påstådda forskningsresultat handlar det helt enkelt oftast om att de exakt speglar rådande förställningar.”

Jag tycker i grunden att papperstidningen [DN] är en fantastisk produkt.

Jag har en enorm respekt för ärlig och god journalistik. Det går inte att nog betona vilken viktig uppgift journalistiken har – för att granska makten för att driva en debatt och förklara komplicerade sammanhang. Därför är det så sorgligt när man förfelar sitt uppdrag, stryper debatten och går maktens ärenden.

Dagligen upplever jag hur mainstream media förtiger viktiga nyheter och information och vi matas vi med nonsens och propaganda. 

Saknar jag DN? Ja! Jag saknar Richard Swartz och Nathan Shachar med sin bildning djup och bredd och respekt för läsarna. Jag saknar Bard och jag saknar korsorden och Kulturbilagan.

Article – 10 foods made in China that are filled with plastic, pesticides and cancer-causing chemicals


List of 10 Food Products From China To Be Avoided That Are Filled With Plastic And Pesticides

Ingesting even small amounts of plastic is horrible for the human’s digestive system and hormones. The BPA (chemical) in plastic mimic’s estrogen and this hormone skyrockets in the body when BPA is ingested.

Ingest plastic rice and you’re basically asking to die young of breast cancer.

Once in a while we would hear something crazy from China like this and we were always weary of food from China for this reason.

You have to think, not only is the food being shipped from across the world (just think what could happen to food during that traveling time and possible exposure to contamination), but also look at what certain Chinese companies are doing to food: They produce it fake, and as cheap as possible!

China is using its innovative methods to make cheap technology products, toys and other consumer products and is also applying that mindset to food, which is absolutely dangerous!

List of 10 food products from china to be avoided:

Cod fish


Cod is a type of fish that is fish-farmed in China. This fish is not healthy and lives in its own waste.
Currently, about 50% of American cod comes from China.

Tilapia fish


Tilapia is another type of fish commonly fish-farmed in China. Fish farming is a small pool of waste water that the fish live in .A tilapia fish will eat just about anything! So, these fish are some of the worst, most toxic and unhealthy fish that you can come across. It is one of the worst fish purchases you could buy and it is commonly known that in China the sea-food farmers won’t even let their children eat the seafood that they farm. THIS should trigger your red alert: 80% of the Tilapia in America comes from China!

Chinese apple juice

Approximately 50% of the apple juice sold in the United States again comes from China. China is the LARGEST pesticide producing country in the world and they have not even begun to address pesticide or chemical residue in foods. I recommend that you completely avoid apple juice, for yours and your children’s safety. Fruit juice is too rich in sugar and is better mixed with vegetable juice for your normal blood sugar levels.

Processed mushrooms

U.S. inspectors have found tainted mushrooms from China. Some manufacturers in China go so far as to label these processed mushrooms organic to increase their profits! If you do a google search, you will find that there are many “mystery mushrooms” in China, completely fake. 34% of processed mushrooms are from China. Do your best to know your source, by buying local and true organic food supplies!

Chinese garlic

U.S. food supervisors have also found tainted garlic from China. Garlic from China is sprayed with chemicals more than abundantly and this garlic leaves a bad taste in your mouth and coked food, that of a chemical concoction. 31% of garlic sold in the U.S. is imported from China!


In 2013 the U.S. Department of Agriculture approved the sale of Chinese chicken in America. Many food safety experts are concerned with the quality of this chicken as China is a country where avian influenza and food-borne illness are very common. Beyond that, China produces more pesticides than any other country in the world and is polluted by not only that, but also by the mass production industry.

“Plastic” rice

As we have mentioned previously in an article, fake plastic rice is also being produced. It is believed that it is actually made from potatoes and fake synthetic resin. When this rice is boiled, the rice stays hard and does not cook like naturally-grown rice. It is believed that long-term effects of this food could be cancerous.

Mud (sold as black pepper)

A vendor in China collected mud and sold it as black pepper, and also took flour and sold it as white pepper. Call it whatever you want and sell it away! The Chinese don’t have a lot of due diligence in their food and safety regulatory systems. Not that these are always great, just look at U.S. ones! We have standards too, but they are very low standards at best.

Green peas

Green peas in China were found in 2005, and may be still produced today. These fake peas were created with snow peas, soy beans, along with green dye and sodium metabisulfite (a chemical that is used as bleach and as a preservative). This dye is banned for use on produce because it may cause cancer, as well as inhibit the body’s natural ability to absorb calcium. These green peas also didn’t soften when boiled and the water turned in unnatural green color. Again, avoid green peas from China!

In our humble opinion food from China is some of the worst food you can get on the planet. As mentioned, China produces more pesticides than any other country in the world, meaning your food is most likely to be “laced” with pesticides. It is one of the most polluted regions in the entire world. 70% of their rivers are polluted, the air is toxic and the sheer volume production of products there leaves a lot of toxic chemicals and by-products as waste that leak into the environment.

Read this one fact: the air in Beijing is so polluted that breathing it actually does as much damage to the lungs as smoking 40 cigarettes a day, says a new study as of 2015.From China? Just forget about it!

Industrial salt

Industrial salt is unfit for human consumption.Yet industrial salt has been sold as table salt for whole 13 years! Industrial salt can cause mental and physical medical conditions, hypothyroid problems as well as reproductive system disorders.

How can you tell if your garlic, mushrooms or apple juice, are from China?

Well, it is very difficult to tell! For this reason we recommend shopping locally at your farmers market and getting to know your farmer or supplier. Ask questions at your health food or grocery store, and do your research. Use your cell phone to google it in the store!

Artikel: Stig Bengmark, Om att bli en giftjägare

Det är alltid intressant att läsa vad Stig Bengmark har att säga om diverse saker – här pratar han t ex tatueringar, som jag har tjatat om många gånger..
och så är det förstås viktigt att köpa ekologiskt odlad mat, försöker att använda det så mycket det bara går! 


Publicerat den: 30 mars, 2015

Bli en giftjägare – det lönar sig.

Det känns mycket otryggt att veta att vi alla är utsatta för åtskilliga hundra, troligen tusentals, kemiska substanser och att hälsokonsekvenserna av de flesta av dessa substanser är långtifrån utredda och ordentligt kända. Redan för 15 år sedan, år 2000, konstaterade EU i en rapport att man har mycket liten kunskap om 90% av de kemikalier som vi utsätts för – och det gäller även om man begränsade sig till bara de kemikalier som användes i större mängder (mer än 1000 ton per år). Det är knappast blivit bättre idag – snarare tvärtom.

Gäller inte bara pesticider – utan också vardagsgifter

En färsk rapport från WHO gör gällande att de negativa effekterna på vår hälsa faktiskt är betydligt värre än vad vi i vår vildaste fantasi har kunnat föreställa oss. Vi börjar långsamt inse att det inte bara är kemiska bekämpningsmedel som vi måste se upp med, utan en lång rad andra ämnen – substanser som vi kanske trott var ganska oskyldiga och som vi nu måste inse är mer negativa för hälsan än vad vi hittills velat acceptera. Det gäller t.ex. silikoner i implantat och färger i tatueringar – substanser som lagts på/i huden eller inne i kroppen. Om än långsamt, mycket långsamt, så läcker dessa och påverkar bl.a. vårt immunsystem. Var säker, dess effekter finns där även om det inte märks, åtminstone inte till en början. Bl.a. finner man i den medicinska litteraturen misstankar om att silikon från implantat läcker och bl.a. kan bidraga till uppkomst av den ”mystiska” sjukdomen fibromyalgi men också till s.k autoimmuna sjukdomar som sklerodermi (se Bengmark S. Läkartidningen 2012;9:485).

Gränsvärden betyder lite – gifterna jobbar tillsammans och förstärker varandra

Problemet är att vi sätter alldeles för stor tilltro till s.k. gränsvärden – att hålla sig under gällande gränsvärde ger falsk trygghet. Olika gifter lägger nämligen ihop sina effekter och förstärker varandra, vilket skapar ett högt inflammatoriskt tryck i kroppen. Danska forskare – de som dragit fram risken med Bisphenol A i ljuset – illustrerar detta med ett teoretiskt exempel 1+1+1=7.

Se upp med hudkrämer

Just nu riktas uppmärksamheten mot s.k. parabener och ftalater som bl.a. finns i hudkrämer, tvål, smink, doftljus, tvättmedel, tandkrämer och plastleksaker. Det är först på senare år som forskarna börjat visa dessa substanser ett allt större intresse. De spelar på lågmälda instrument i ”inflammationsorkestern”, men dess effekter är betydande. Jag har läst att en kvinna som dagligen sminkar sig diskret, utsätter sin kropp för ca 250 kemikalier och av dessa kan drygt 160 substanser identifieras redan samma dag i kroppen – i själva verket cirkulerar många av dem i blodet inom bara några sekunder eller minuter – så genomsläpplig är nämligen huden och t.ex. munslemhinnan.

Förutom att dessa substanser påverkar immunsystemet så har de visat sig ha särskilt störande effekter på inresekretoriska/endokrina organ – främst sköldkörtel, ovarier och testiklar. De anses bidra till ökat antal sjukdomar i just dessa organ och speciellt till minskat antal spermier och risk för infertilitet.

Pesticider – ett oöverstigligt problem

Pesticider (bekämpningsmedel) är trots allt de omvärldsgifter som uppmärksammats mest. I EU finns flera hundra godkända pesticider och det utan att vi, som WHO påpekar, vet tillräckligt mycket om deras hälsoeffekter, hur länge de stannar i mark och vatten och hur länge de stannar i människans kropp. Vi utsätts för dessa substanser flera gånger varje dag och framför allt i samband med våra måltider. Det är omöjligt att skydda sig mot dem – de finns i så gott som all mat och informationen är alldeles för dålig. EU borde för länge sedan infört en informationsplikt om innehållet i frukt och grönsaker, fröer, ärter och bönor och vin.

Är ekologisk mat en verklighet eller ytterligare en dimridå?

Jag tror tyvärr att många människor är lite naiva när de tror att ekologisk mat inte bara är odlad utan konstgödsel och utan också utan pesticider. Är det verkligen så? Jag tvivlar. När man gräver djupare i litteraturen finner man bl a att det i ekologisk odling används s.k. organiska pesticider (t.ex. en rotenone-pyrethrin-blandning), och när några forskare vid ett av världens främsta universitet – Berkeley Universitet i Califonien – nyligen jämförde ekologiska druvor (som besprutas i medeltal 7-8 ggr/skörd med den organiska rotenone-pyrethrin-blandningen) med druvor som använts till traditionell vinproduktion (och i medeltal bara besprutats med det syntetiska medlet (Imidan) 2 ggr/skörd), så fann forskarna det mycket osannolikt att den organiska blandningen med rotenone och pyrethrin är bättre för miljön (och hälsan) än Imidan, och detta speciellt om man också tar in i bilden att denna blandning har välkända negativa effekter på framför allt fisk, men också annat liv i sjö och hav (http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~lhom/organics.doc).

Ett glädjande besked i mörkret

Men, låt oss glädja oss åt att det faktiskt finns ett antal frukter och grönsaker som har visat sig innehålla så lite pesticider att de inte ens behöver köpas ekologiska. Dessa är: avokado, majs, ananas, kålhuvud, luktärtor, lök, sparris, mango, papaya, kiwi, äggplanta, grapefrukt, cantaloupemelon, blomkål och sötpotatis. Min hustru och jag har en liten fusklapp i våra plånböcker över dessa men även över ”the dirty twelwe” – de frukter och grönsaker som man bör undvika att köpa om de inte finns ekologiska.

The dirty twelve – ta dom på allvar

Ett dussin frukter och grönsaker (egentligen fler) innehåller nämligen så mycket pesticider att de enbart bör konsummeras som ekologiska alternativ (om nu ”ekologiskt” har något säkert mervärde – själv behöver jag fortfarande övertygas).

Till the ”dirty twelve” hör tyvärr fler av våra stora favoriter och många är också kända för sitt stora innehåll av viktiga nyttigheter som äpple (päron nämns också men ryms inte inom 12-gruppen), jordgubbar, vindruvor (vin), selleri, persikor och nektariner, spenat, röd och grön paprika, gurka, körsbärstomater, sockerärter och potatis. Köp bara dessa om de finns ekologiska! Alternativet att helt utesluta ”the dirty twelwe” och i stället söka sig andra och säkrare frukter och grönsaker, finns förstås. Kanske vore en blockad av ”pesticid-käk” en bra åtgärd?

Näringsexperternas bidrag

Näringsexperter har försökt framställa en lista på frukt och grönt som kan ersätta ”the dirty twelwe”. I verkligheten bör listan göras längre för mörkertalet är stort, men så här långt ser i alla fall listan ut så här (jag misstänker att den kommer att revideras efterhand i takt med att vi tillförs mer information):

Bland våra absoluta favoriter finns selleri, paprika, spenat och grönkål – de vill vi absolut inte vara utan så dessa gör vi ett undantag för och handlar ekologiskt. Både spenat och grönkål bevarar sitt näringsinnehåll vid frysning väldigt bra, och av bekvämlighetsskäl vill vi ha tillgång till frysta ekologiskt odlade grönsaker. Men industrin tycks inte vara med på noterna – hur ofta finner vi ekologiska grönsaker i våra frysdiskar?

Vi gläder oss åt att broccoli är godkänd också ur pesticidsynpunkt – för oss får det bli mer broccoli framöver i stället för t.ex. grönkål – och vi gläder oss åt att den gröna listan lyfter fram persilja (skall ätas som sallad, inte bra strös som dekoration på maten), timjan och mangold (som min pappa kallade för fattigmanssparris). Till glädjeämnena hör också att cantaloupemelonen nämns så många gånger – det är den enda melonsort som vi regelbundet äter eftersom den, till skillnad från andra melonsorter och speciellt vattenmelon, innehåller väsentligen mindre fruktsocker (ligger i nivå med hallon och är mycket lägre än t.ex. äpplen och päron).

Svenska grönsaksdiskar tycks dock inte riktigt hänga med. Dels är de inte alltid så fräscha (logistiken är för långsam) om du jämför med t.ex. Storbritannien och USA, och dels är sortimentet inte alls lika omfattande som det man ser i andra länder. Kanske är det delvis vårt fel som konsumenter? Vi kanske bara äter vanemässigt och slarvar med att pröva de nya grönsaker om de dyker upp – grönsaker som man i Asien, Afrika och Sydamerika haft glädje av i årtusende? Kanske tid att vi skärper oss? Äntligen har färsk gurkmeja gjort sitt inträde i matbutikerna – nu väntar sorghum och många fler i kulisserna.

Vad finns att vinna?

Ett antal sjukdomar har särskilt förknippats med pesticider och andra kemikalier och genom att systematisk undvika exposition av dessa kan man, i kombination med en i övrigt hälsosam livsstil, förhoppningsvis undvika sjukdomar som bl.a.:

* Cancer (speciellt bröstcancer, endometrios, prostatacancer, testikelcancer och sköldkörtelcancer)
* Diabetes
* Fetma
* För tidig pubertet (mens och tidig bröstutveckling hos unga flickor)
* Infertilitet (både kvinnlig och manlig – för låg halt spermier)
* Låg födelsevikt, havererade graviditeter och missbildningar
* Neurologiska sjukdomar (Alzheimer och Parkinson´s sjukdom – gifterna rotenone paraquat har i djurförsök visat sig förstöra viktiga s.k. dopaminerga hjärnceller – viktiga för att hålla Parkinson´s sjukdom borta)
* Sköldkörtelproblem (struma och cancer)

Så, försök att bli en giftjägare – det lönar sig!
