Your Children to be Used as Guinea Pigs for New GMO Vaccine
A US vaccine company has applied for permission to infect up to one thousand individuals, including children, with genetically modified live bacteria contained in an oral vaccine. PaxVax recently submitted their application for permission to begin the first of three international clinical trials for the new oral cholera vaccine “via oral ingestion of the GMOs”. [1] –PaxVax claims to have several safeguards in place to “restrict the spread and persistence of the GMOs and their introduced genetic material” during this clinical trial. That precaution itself should lead any parent to question the wisdom of administering genetically modified live bacteria to their child.
The Problems With GMOs
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have earned a great deal of media attention in recent years, and rightfully so.—In a two-year research study in 2010, hamsters were fed GM soy. Most of the third-generation hamsters had lost their ability to have babies. Other disturbing findings from the study included the discovery of hair inside the hamsters’ mouths, slower growth, and a higher mortality rate among offspring. [2]–Numerous other research studies have shown that GMOs pose serious health and environmental risks, including reproductive disorders, immune system disorders, accelerated aging, organ damage, gastrointestinal problems, and cholesterol and insulin problems. [3] The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) recommends that “physicians advise all patients to avoid GM food.” [4]–Although the FDA claimed in 1992 that GMOs are safe, many of their own scientists disagreed with that decision. Dozens of classified government memorandums have since been made public as the result of a lawsuit, showing specific, key objections to the use of GMOs. Unfortunately, the scientists’ recommendations for long-term studies about the safety of GMOs in our food supply were ignored as appointees followed executive orders to claim GMOs were safe. [5]—In over sixty countries, including Japan, Australia, and the entire European Union, complete bans or severe restrictions have been placed on the sale and production of GMO-containing products. [6]–We simply don’t know the long-term effects of introducing genetically modified organisms into our food supply and our bodies. There have been no human clinical trials conducted to evaluate the safety or long-term effects of consuming genetically modified organisms in our food.–The closest thing we have to a clinical trial was dubbed a “human feeding experiment, ” in which published results indicated that “the genetic material inserted into GM soy transfers into bacteria living inside our intestines and continues to function.”–In simpler terms, genetically modified proteins may be produced in our bodies continuously after we have have eaten a food containing GMOs.
The Problems With GM Vaccines
The problems associated with using GM vaccines are similar to the problems associated with consuming GM foods. Dr. Joseph Mercola, a widely respected health expert, explained these very real concerns using technical language as well as laymen’s terms in a well-written article on his website in 2012. Here is the short answer — or lack thereof — to the questions many parents are facing about the use of GM vaccines–“What happens when foreign DNA is inserted into the human body is a mystery. Will it trigger undesirable changes in human cells or tissues? Will it combine or exchange genetic material with human DNA? Will it transfer to future generations? No one knows.” [7]–Unfortunately, this is not the first time a genetically modified vaccine will be used. A previous version of this vaccine, known then as Orochol, was registered for use as a prescription drug in 2000, under the condition that adverse events would be monitored and reported.
Back in 1999, the Genetic Manipulation Advisory Committee conducted a risk assessment study of the use of Orochol. Although they claimed that “the vaccine poses no significant risk to the environment or the community,” in their risk assessment, they outlined the potential for multiple risks to health and human safety and the environment:
“Human health and safety
Potential hazards that may be posed to human health and safety are whether:
Orochol® vaccine might be harmful to vaccine recipients; and
Orochol® vaccine might be harmful to people accidentally exposed to the vaccine.
Environmental safety
Potential hazards that may be posed to the safety of the environment are whether:
GM bacteria might persist in the environment;
GM bacteria might cause disease in organisms other than humans; and
GM bacteria might be able to transfer the mercury resistance genes to other microorganisms and harm the environment.” [8]
Orochol is no longer produced. Effectiveness was estimated at sixty to ninety percent, and its protection lasted a mere three months before a booster vaccine was needed. In some US trials, protection for subjects only lasted a week. In a field trial of more than 67,000 subjects in Indonesia, Orochol did not offer “significant protective efficacy.” [9]–Are the short-lived perceived benefits of using GM vaccines really worth the long-term risks?
What the Government Isn’t Telling You About GM Vaccines
If you think that this new cholera vaccine is the only GM vaccine, you are wrong. There are other GM vaccines currently in use or proposed for use in the near future, including at least one flu shot, a vaccine which has come under heavy scrutiny recently for its ineffectiveness.–In January 2013, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a GM vaccine for seasonal influenza outbreaks. This GM flu shot, known as Flublok, is recommended to healthy adults ages 18 – 49 by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on their website. [10]–However, there are several important facts to consider regarding the use of Flublok which are not mentioned on the page of the CDC’s website that talks about this GM vaccine. The CDC makes no mention of the fact that this flu shot is genetically modified or the fact that its effectiveness is a mere 44 percent, as stated on the Flublok package insert. [11]–Nor does the CDC share the fact that two people died during the clinical trial. -In the section titled “Is this vaccine safe?” the CDC only lists “pain at the injection site, headache, fatigue, and muscle aches” as possible side effects. However, a closer look at the vaccine’s own “Warnings and Precautions” section details the following side effects:
· allergic reactions
· respiratory infections
· headaches
· fatigue
· altered immunocompetence
· rhinorrhea
· myalgia [12]
Other Problems With Genetically Modified Vaccines
According to PaxVax’s application for their proposed clinical trial, “There have been no credible reports of adverse effects on human health and safety or the environment resulting from any of these releases.” That is pharma-speak for “there have been no credible studies to assess the safety and efficacy of this vaccine.”–One facet of this genetically modified vaccine allows the bacteria to grow in the presence of mercury. If traditional bacteria can’t even grow well in mercury, do you think it is healthy for our children to have mercury in their bodies? Do our children need another mercury-laden vaccine?–The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that there are 100,000 – 200,000 deaths worldwide each year from cholera. According to WHO, the “provision of safe water and sanitation is critical in reducing the impact of cholera and other waterborne diseases” and oral cholera vaccines “should not replace conventional control measures.” Malnourished children are also at greater risk for dying from cholera. [13]–Socially responsible measures would dictate that clean water and adequate nutrition should be provided to the most impoverished people in areas where cholera is more widespread, rather than promoting the spread of live, genetically modified cholera bacteria.
PaxVax claims to produce “socially responsible vaccines.” Is a vaccine containing genetically modified bacteria really socially responsible?–Is it socially responsible for governments, healthcare providers, and pharmacy technicians to not tell you they are injecting you with a genetically modified vaccine?–If you object to the use of GMOs, or if you are trying to avoid the use of GMOs in your household, you will certainly want to avoid genetically modified vaccines.

The benefits of Lugol’s Iodine for the body

Orthomolecular research is focused on preventing and treating disease by determining how much of a certain natural substance the body needs and then determining the best way to provide it. Lugol’s Iodine (LI) is a substance that can be of tremendous benefit to us when we ensure that we have the right amount in our bodies. We can suffer from a wide range of illnesses simply because our bodies are deficient in this miraculous iodine.

Here are some of the benefits of Lugol’s Iodine for the body:

Essential for proper thyroid health.
Useful anti-oxidant.
Efficient anti-pathogen-kills most forms of bacteria, viruses and fungi quickly.
Effectively works to reverse hypo- and hyperthyroid conditions.
Has anti-biofilm surfactant properties.
Acts as an anti-histamine at larger dosages.
Detoxes cadmium, aluminum, lead, mercury, arsenic and other poisons.
Detoxes fluorine and bromine.
Helps to balance the body’s hormone system.
Essential for all hormone receptor activity and health (not just the thyroid gland).
Raises metabolism, making it more efficient.
Essential for proper immune system health.
Essential immune system component of mucus glands throughout the body.
Essential for bone health.
Promotes skin, hair and nail health.
Promotes healthy digestion.
Reduces excessive mucus production.
Helps properly regulate estrogen in the ovaries.
Decreases insulin needs/helps diabetes.
Iodine has mucolytic action (clears excess mucus in the lungs, nose etc.).
Increases energy (increases ATP production).
Essential for early brain development.
Lowers cholesterol and reduces arterial plaque build-up.
Radiation protection.
Please note that many of the above benefits from supplementing Lugol’s Iodine have nothing whatsoever to do with the thyroid gland. Our thyroid gland is not the only part of our body that needs iodine. We should also ask: What other diseases and problems can (and will) arise if there is insufficient iodine/iodide for our brain, stomach, intestines, ears, hormone receptors, breasts, eyes, skin, uterus, prostate, salivary glands, lungs and immune system These are all iodine user/storage sites

Why should we supplement Lugol’s Iodine Why not just supplement Potassium Iodide(I-) or Nascent Iodine(I3-) instead

The reason why Lugol’s Iodine is perhaps a better supplement is because it has all three forms of beneficial elemental iodine — Lugol’s Iodine contains molecular Iodine(I2), Iodide(I-) and Tri-iodide (I3-) according to this equilibrium reaction in solution:

I2 + I- I3-

Furthermore, when used on its own, Nascent Iodine (I3-) is not a heavy metal chelator. Lugol’s Iodine is a heavy metal chelator and remover (due to the iodide content), removing mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum and arsenic from the body’s cells. Similarly, the Iodide form is only absorbed by the thyroid gland, skin and salivary glands, whereas the elemental iodine storage sites in the breasts, prostate and intestines can only absorb the molecular iodine form (I2). Furthermore, many other iodine storage sites need elemental iodine – such as the brain, stomach and salivary glands – and these sites need higher dosages in order to be absorbed in sufficient and proper amounts.—So the reason I use and prefer orthomolecular dosages of Lugol’s Iodine (2 to 8 drops or 12.5mgs to 50 mgs of 5% Lugol’s Iodine per day for maintenance) is because of LI’s huge all-round benefit for the whole body – not just for the benefit of the thyroid gland.


Companion Supplements For LI— * Selenium is required for proper glutathione peroxidase levels in the thyroid gland. If these levels are too low, then hydrogen peroxide waste builds up to dangerous levels within the thyroid cells, which eventually tend to corrupt the host Thyroglubulin protein and changes it into a foreign protein that the immune system regards as “The Enemy”. Hence the anti-bodies attack the thyroid cell, causing nodule formation..

* Selenium, as glutathione, as well as Zinc are also essential for the conversion of T4(thyroxin) to the more active form of T3 (triiodothyronin) within the thyroid gland. This helps to maintain more appropriate levels of T3(the more active thyroid hormone). Zinc is also required to maintain healthy thyroid receptors throughout the body. Zinc also stimulates the immune system.

* Both mercury and fluoride, whenever they are in excess in the body, cause significant damage to both the hypothalamus(in the brain) and the pituitary gland. Iodine is essential to displace and remove excess fluoride from the body and both iodine and selenium are needed to remove mercury. Build up of mercury or fluoride in these glands will cause corrupt mis-regulation of the TRH(Thyroid Releasing Hormone) and TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) which is also bound to adversely affect the production of thyroid hormones in the body.

* Vitamin C is necessary to help clear the NIS (Sodium-Iodide Symporters) of bromine corruption. When bromine is absorbed by the NIS network, iodine absorption is strongly inhibited and impeded. Vitamin C acts to quickly clear bromine from the intestinal and cellular NIS pathways to allow the proper uninhibited absorption of iodine throughout the body.

* Magnesium (as well as tyrosine, an amino acid) are needed to convert the iodide in the blood so it can be stored in the thyroid gland as iodine. Lack of proper daily amounts of magnesium in the body will therefore greatly contribute to low thyroid or hypothyroid conditions. Most people lack proper amounts of magnesium in their diets today.

* Niacin and the B Vitamins. Higher dose niacin is required to stimulate energy production in the body. Niacin acts to lift depression and also helps to thin the blood safely. From recent research it was found that niacin/niacinamide increased immune system strength by a factor of 2000. Supplementing the full range of B vitamins also acts synergistically to increase the beneficial effects of niacin.

* The Sea Salt Loading Protocol may also be needed to more quickly remove excess bromine from the body and from the blood. Bromine tends to inhibit iodine absorption as well as cause many side-effects and symptoms. See References below for more details.


9th Grade Science Project Finds Plants Don’t Grow Near Wi-Fi

by: April McCarthy
Five ninth-grade young women from Denmark recently created a science experiment that is causing a stir in the scientific community. They found that when garden cress seeds are placed near Wi-Fi, they simply will not grow.

Wi-Fi connects electronic devices to wireless computer networks (wireless LAN) using electromagnetic radiation. They’re installed in homes, schools, offices, stores, hotels, coffee shops, airports, libraries, hospitals, public buildings and even entire sections of cities. Wi-Fi signals are, unlike TV and radio signals, strong enough to penetrate concrete walls. Many health experts consider Wi-Fi radiation to be extremely dangerous to long-term health.

Based on the existing science, many public health experts believe it is possible we will face an epidemic of cancers in the future resulting from uncontrolled use of cell phones and increased population exposure to WiFi and other wireless devices. Thus it is important that all of us, and especially children, restrict our use of cell phones, limit exposure to background levels of Wi-Fi, and that government and industry discover ways in which to allow use of wireless devices without such elevated risk of serious disease. We need to educate decision-makers that ‘business as usual’ is unacceptable. The importance of this public health issue can not be underestimated,” said Dr. David Carpenter, Dean at the School of Public Health, State University of New York.

Since Wi-Fi is so recent, no studies have yet been done on the long-term health effects of Wi-Fi. However, thousands of studies have been done on the health effects of mobile phones and mobile phone masts. These studies have found that mobile phone radiation can cause cancer!

The Experiment

It started with an observation and a question. The girls noticed that if they slept with their mobile phones near their heads at night, they often had difficulty concentrating at school the next day. They wanted to test the effect of a cellphone’s radiation on humans, but their school, Hjallerup School in Denmark, did not have the equipment to handle such an experiment. So the girls designed an experiment that would test the effect of cellphone radiation on a plant instead.

The students placed six trays filled with Lepidium sativum, a type of garden cress into a room without radiation, and six trays of the seeds into another room next to two routers that according to the girls calculations, emitted about the same type of radiation as an ordinary cellphone.

Over the next 12 days, the girls observed, measured, weighed and photographed their results. Although by the end of the experiment the results were blatantly obvious — the cress seeds placed near the router had not grown. Many of them were completely dead. While the cress seeds planted in the other room, away from the routers, thrived.

The experiment earned the girls (pictured below) top honors in a regional science competition and the interest of scientists around the world.

According to Kim Horsevad, a teacher at Hjallerup Skole in Denmark where the cress experiment took place, a neuroscience professor at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, is interested in repeating the
experiment in controlled professional scientific environments.

Wi-Fi radiation penetrates the body, affects cell membranes and over time cells to lose their ability to function properly. It disturbs the body’s natural energy field causing stress, fatigue and a weakened immune system. It can also cause headaches, concentration problems, dizziness, anxiety, memory loss, depression, hyperactivity, abnormal heart rates, seizures, epilepsy, nausea, skin rashes, insomnia, ringing ears, high blood pressure, brain damage, autism, diabetes, fibromyalgia, infertility, birth defects, DNA damage, leukemia, cancer, etc.

Children are especially vulnerable to Wi-Fi radiation signals because their nervous systems and brains are still developing. Their skulls are thinner and smaller, so the radiation penetrates their brains more deeply. Many schools are now using Wi-Fi but this is negatively affecting the learning abilities of children!

In the real world, true evidence of safety is the healthy functioning of the most vulnerable — pregnant women and children — when they are intentionally, unavoidably, or accidentally exposed to microwave radiation at approved levels. Yet an increasing number of people (around 15% according to Dr. Magda Havas), including children all over the world, are showing symptoms of ill health after exposure to WHO-approved levels of microwaves from transmitter towers, wireless internet and phones. The scientific research was there all along to show that this would happen, especially to children, but the science was simply not used by the WHO committee setting the standards.
