We have some real problems and they are only going to get worse. We have a right to know what we are eating. People are getting allergies, this isn't normal folks. If we don't pay attention to what's happening, in our food supply, to our farmers, the plants, and ultimately our grocery store we are going to wake up one day and realize we trusted the health of our children and the health of our families to the government. And the government let us down.

Officials within the FDA and CDC, are always claiming that researchers and scientists who conduct studies, not funded by drug companies or the government, are making unfounded claims about a link between thimerosal-laced vaccines and autism.

I say cut the crap.

Think about it. Why would so many highly respected scientists, researchers and physicians go to such great lengths to concoct bogus studies and issue false reports, in essence putting their professional reputations on the line, if their was no connection'

I want these officials to do two things. First I want them to give me one good reason why these professionals would make this up, and two, I want them to give me one logical alternative theory for the current epidemic of disorders.

Like most of us, Christy Diemond didn’t announce, "I want to be a consumer advocate" when she was six years old. It started like it usually does, personally.

This mainstream mortgage broker and mother of two began feeling sick. She'd read a book about mercury poisoning, which stuck with her. Diemond decided to try having her (silver/mercury) amalgam fillings removed from her teeth and replaced with composites. The first time she went to a dentist, she didn't really feel any better afterward - but thought all the mercury was taken out. It actually took three more dentists and seven more years before she was able to verify that all the amalgam was really gone. Then she actually started feeling better. Diemond now has no more chronic fatigue, arthritis or cloudy thinking. It all stemmed from mercury poisoning.

Critics say judges 'fail to understand the barbarity of the procedure'

A federal appeals court today upheld a district court decision striking down the federal law banning partial-birth abortion. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit in St. Louis agreed with a federal district court judge in Nebraska that the ban, passed by Congress in 2003, is unconstitutional because it does not contain an exception for the health of the mother.

A Florida judge released some medical records of the conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh to prosecutors on Wednesday, allowing them to move forward in a long-stalled investigation into whether Mr. Limbaugh illegally bought painkillers.

The medical records have remained sealed since investigators seized them because Mr. Limbaugh appealed, arguing that the seizure violated his privacy rights. He lost at the circuit and appellate court levels, and the Florida Supreme Court declined to hear the case.

Federal health officials said Thursday that they were looking into a suggestion by a small Texas study that Ritalin and other stimulant drugs given to children might increase their risk of cancer later in life.

A team of experts from the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency went to Texas on May 23 to examine the methods used by the researchers, who found damage to the chromosomes of 12 children who took Ritalin for three months.

Supreme Court ruled Monday that the federal government has the power to prosecute the use of marijuana for medical purposes even in states that have enacted their own laws permitting it.

By a vote of 6 to 3, the court ruled that Congress's constitutional authority to regulate the interstate market in drugs, licit or illicit, extends to small, homegrown quantities of doctor-recommended marijuana consumed under California's Compassionate Use Act, which was adopted by an overwhelming majority of voters in 1996.

The U.S. Delegation to Codex has issued a formal statement to the Codex Alimentarius Commission that the US, during the July 4-9, 2005, meeting in Rome, will support compulsory rules.

The U.S. law that is about to be vanquished is the Dietary Supplement, Health and Education Act of 1994. Codex is a joint venture between the United Nation’s World Health Organization and Food and Agriculture Organization. (WHO/FAO) The World Trade Organization (WTO) has already stated that it will enforce Codex “guidelines” as the world standard for trade in dietary supplements. This will mean that gradually, pill-by-pill, our access to the dietary supplements we depend on will disappear.

The Nevada Joint Union High School District board of trustees voted this week to keep its policy in which students are allowed to leave school for medical treatment without consulting their parents.

However, the trustees voted 4-1 Wednesday night at Bear River High School to change the policy so that parents would have the option of including unsealed envelopes in their child's file at school. These envelopes would be given to the student to read in the event they choose to exercise their rights to leave class for treatment, said Maggie Deetz, Nevada Union superintendent.
