Two New Articles About Mercury in Vaccines Raise Concerns About the Health Effects of Their Ingredients

Two New Articles About Mercury in Vaccines Raise Concerns About the Health Effects of Their Ingredients

The issue of whether to take a vaccine, whether to vaccinate children, and if so, which vaccine(s), is highly controversial.

The seasonal flu shot is one of the most controversial vaccines (Gardasil being another) on the market yet we see them being pushed by drug chain, pharmacy chains, and many doctors’ offices.

Being forthcoming, at best the effectiveness of a flu vaccine is a hit and miss proposition.   Results from a major British medical journal, the Lancet, published the hit and miss rate for 9 out of 12 years in a study released in 2011. The numbers showed that only the seasonal flu vaccine only prevented the flu in 1.5 people out of 100. Even USA Today reported that after age 65 the flu vaccination had little or no value.

Being transparent I was one who used to get flu vaccines around the 2000’s at the encouragement of my Internist. After I got ill (see About Me), started developing neurological symptoms and learned that drug manufacturers still use mercury (thimerosal) as a preservative, I stopped.

Mercury is highly toxic to the neurological system. Even once when talking with a nurse promoting vaccines at Wal-Mart as to whether mercury was in the flu vaccine and whether it might aggravate my neurological system, even she advised against me taking the vaccine. (Think of that, when having the nurse examine the drug insert and quizzing her, and with her promoting the vaccine, she advised against it.)

Since I stopped getting the vaccination I have not had a single flu bout. And if for some reason I had a serious nausea and vomiting bout, I would first want whatever is bad out. Next I would just call my physician and get a prescription of Phenergan. (One of the biggest adverse reactions to the flu is dehydration.)

The more I research about vaccinations, the more I question the quality control. Because Congress, in creating a “vaccine court” has given pharmaceutical drug companies limited liability in answering for defective products (vaccines), including contaminated ones, what motivation does the drug companies have for the best quality control?

With each injection a tax is paid into the fund for victims (and there will be victims with adverse reactions, including major organ failure and death) the drug companies are absolved from liability.

We can’t expect the FDA to fix the problem. They’re like firemen showing up at a house already burnt down to the ground. It’s been acknowledged for years that the FDA is broken.

With the flu vaccines spotted history, would you be willing to take the shot, whether you or not you have a neurological condition, if you knew that there is more mercury in the vaccine in parts per million than the EPA allows in our water? Or what if other countries don’t allow their flu vaccines to have as excessive amounts per million of mercury as a preservative?

It’s important to read the following two articles. Do your own research about mercury in vaccines (thimerosal) as a preservative. Make an informed choice after you do the research because only you will have to live with the results, whether good, neutral or bad.

And whether you support vaccines or oppose them, don’t you think it is in the public’s interest to have the least contaminated formula or preservatives in the medicine? After all, flu shots containing mercury are being directly injected into humans. Think about it!

EXCLUSIVE: Natural News tests flu vaccine for heavy metals, finds 25,000 times higher mercury level than EPA limit for water

(NaturalNews) Mercury tests conducted on vaccines at the Natural News Forensic Food Lab have revealed a shockingly high level of toxic mercury in an influenza vaccine (flu shot) made by GlaxoSmithKline (lot #9H2GX). Tests conducted via ICP-MS document mercury in the Flulaval vaccine at a shocking 51 parts per million, or over 25,000 times higher than the maximum contaminant level of inorganic mercury in drinking water set by the EPA.(1)

The tests were conducted via ICP-MS using a 4-point mercury calibration curve for accuracy. Even then, the extremely high level of mercury found in this flu shot was higher than anything we’ve ever tested, including tuna and ocean fish which are known for high mercury contamination.

In fact, the concentration of mercury found in this GSK flu shot was 100 times higher than the highest level of mercury we’ve ever tested in contaminated fish. And yet vaccines are injected directly into the body, making them many times more toxic than anything ingested orally. As my previous research into foods has already documented, mercury consumed orally is easily blocked by eating common foods like strawberries or peanut butter, both of which bind with and capture about 90% of dietary mercury.

Addendum:  Now if the EPA and the FDA advised pregnant women not to eat canned tuna because of the mercury within them and the risk to their fetus (which has approximately over 100 times LESS mercury than a flu shot) then why are they now encouraging them and the rest of the population to get mercury containing flu shots?  What’s missing here from this picture?

Mercury in influenza vaccines found to be 100 times higher than Australian limit for complementary medicine

(NaturalNews) As Natural News has exhaustively demonstrated this week via ICP-MS laboratory results and vaccine documentation, influenza vaccines manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline still contain 50 ppm mercury.

We find it interesting, therefore, that the Australian government’s limit on mercury in complementary medicines is set at 0.5 ppm, as described in this TGA document:

http://www.tga.gov.au/pdf/foi/foi-314-1112-1…

The document explains that “Incidental metals and non-metals” must be less than 5 ppm total, and mercury in particular must be under 0.5 ppm in order to meet the TGA’s “acceptance criteria.”

Yet influenza vaccines contain 50 ppm mercury — 100 times the Australian government’s limit of 0.5 ppm.

Document discusses need to remove mercury from vaccines

Australia is known globally as an aggressive vaccination-pushing nation which systematically suppresses the speech of anyone who dares question the safety and efficacy of vaccines.

Addendum:  Now if the Australian government uses vaccines with 100 times less mercury, why is the FDA not giving US citizens the same benefit?  What’s wrong with this picture?

Food Imported From China: Are a Few Pennies of Savings Worth the Risk?

Food Imported From China:  Are a Few Pennies of Savings Worth the Risk?

I am posting a series of articles that Mike Adams and Natural News has done on food and other associated health products that we import from China.

Mike is right about the lack of inspections by the FDA on imported food.  My own research shows that imported foods may at best have a 2% chance of being inspected.  Businesses that import foods cannot rely the FDA to assure them that imported foods are safe.

As someone who teaches Business Law to MBA students, companies who import from China do not really appreciate the higher risk of liability that comes from importing Chinese goods.

In a products liability action, even if the reseller exercised some “due diligence” by doing quality control testing on goods imported from China, should the consumer purchaser be injured it will be the reseller and anyone in the supply chain that will be held liable.  The law, jury and judges do not care that the culprit is an ocean away from the courtroom.  And let’s see how successful a U.S. company will be in getting the Chinese manufacturer to reimburse them for their settlements and jury awards to US consumers, much less their court costs and expensive attorneys fees.

Is saving a few pennies or even dollars per item worth that risk?

Not Even Good Enough for Dog Food:  Imported Food From China Loaded With Chemicals, Dyes, Pesticides and Fake Ingredients

By Mike Adams

May 10, 2013

(NaturalNews) Do you really know what’s in all the food you’re eating that’s  imported from China? If you don’t, you’re actually in good company: The FDA only  inspects 1% – 2% of all the food imported from China, so they don’t know either.  Even when they inspect a shipment, they rarely test it for heavy metals,  pesticides, PCBs or other toxic contaminants.

Mark A. Kastel, Senior Farm  Policy Analyst at The  Cornucopia Institute, added emphasis to this point as he testified this week  in The House Committee on Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia and  Emerging Threats, saying, “We don’t trust, for good reason, the Chinese to  supply ingredients for our dog and cat food. Why should we trust Chinese  exporters for the food that we are feeding our children and  families?”

It’s a good question. Especially when, as Kastel adds, Chinese  food is being routinely found to contain “unapproved chemicals, dyes, pesticides  and outright fraud (fake food).”

Heavily contaminated food from China

As Natural  News has already reported, food from China is frequently found to contain  alarming levels of heavy metals (arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury) and other  contaminants. Politically, China is a communist dictatorship where freedom of  speech is completely outlawed. Environmental regulations are virtually never  enforced. The culture is one of total deception where lying, cheating, stealing  or committing fraud to get ahead is considered completely acceptable — because  that’s how government is operated there. The moral decay of China  is directly reflected in the alarming dishonesty of the food supply. (Yes, a  country’s food exports will reflect its cultural and political philosophies.  Freedom produces healthy food. Oppression and communism produces deceptive,  deadly food.)

Time to Call Senators: Speak Out Against Monsanto Protection Act

Time to Call Senators:  Speak Out Against Monsanto Protection Act

The Monsanto Protection Act is in both houses of Congress.  Monsanto supporters put the provision as a rider on pending Appropriations legislation.  This rider, which could become legislation with a positive vote, puts Monsanto above the law.  The judicial system would lose its power to question or rule on their activities when they violate regulatory provisions or statutes in introducing new GMOs into the marketplace.

You and I have to obey traffic laws, criminal laws, civil laws, etc. or we face penalties, judgments or possibly incarceration.  Can you explain to me why a special sub-segment of an industry should not face what we face?  Is that fairness or justice?

Apparently the vote in the Senate for what’s been labeled the Monsanto Protection Act will happen on next Wednesday, March 27, 2013.  Please contact your two Senators and tell them you want them to support the Tester Amendment 74 regarding the Monsanto Rider.

If you think your phone call is a waste of time, you’re wrong!  In the early portion of my career I worked in two Congressmen’s offices.  Congressional staff members collect number of phone calls on pending legislation (support or against) and report them to their boss.

Here is a list of all U. S. Senators, their state and phone numbers:  U.S. Senator Phone Directory.  If you want to be effective, then only call the Senators from your state.  Even if you can get though to the staff of the other Senators, they probably will count your call in their talley.  –No Name Attorney

 

Action Alert:  We Have 1 Week Or Less to Stop Genetically Engineered Foods and Destruction of the Separation of Powers

Posted on March 20, 2013 by WashingtonsBlog

 Do We Have a Right to Know If Our Food Has Been Genetically Modified?Painting by Anthony Freda: www.AnthonyFreda.com.

Bill Would Strip Courts of Power … And Push Genetically Modified Foods Onto Our Plates

America has been decimated by the breakdown of the separation of powers between different branches of government. For example, the executive branch is negotiating laws in secret – and grabbing powers – without telling Congress.And life-and-death decisions about who the government labels an “enemy combatant” and assassinates are being kept away from the judges altogether.At the same time, government agencies like the FDA go to great lengths to cover up the potential health damage from genetically modified foods, and to keep the consumer in the dark about what they’re really eating.

Remember, genetically engineered foods have been linked to obesity, cancer, liver failure, infertility and all sorts of other diseases (brief, must-watch videos here and here).Things are about to get a lot worse within the next week … unless we stand up and say “NO!”Specifically, a law has been snuck into the Agriculture Appropriations bill – which will be approved by March 27th – which would destroy the separation of powers by stripping courts of the power to challenge genetically modified foods.How?The “Monsanto Rider” (section 735) uses “farmer-friendly” happy talk, but is an iron-fisted ploy to allow GMO crops to be planted even if a court has ruled that planting them is illegal.If the United States Department of Agriculture – which suffered “regulatory capture” by the big food companies decades ago – approves a genetically modified food without any testing, a court can enjoin (i.e. halt) production of that food until testing occurs.Yet the Monsanto Rider would strip the courts of power, and would allow GMO crops to be planted and put in our food … no matter what a judge has ruled.As the Weston Price Foundation notes:

If a GMO crop approval was shown to violate the law and require further analysis of its harmful impacts (as several courts have concluded in recent years, for example with GMO alfalfa and GMO sugar beets) this provision would override any court-mandated caution and allow continued planting and commercialization while further review takes place.Here’s a good summary of the bill.

Political Cartoon Captures What We're Facing in 2013

Political Cartoon Captures What We’re Facing in 2013

With food inflation setting to soar in 2016, saving money on your grocery bill is important.  I’ve seen figures reported groceries used to make up 6% of our monthly budget.  As of 2013 Max Keiser, an economic journalist, reported in the U.S. groceries rose on average to 16% of a family’s monthly income.

Two ways that you can significantly lower your grocery bill while simultaneously eating better food than is offered at the traditional grocery store (i.e., non-gmo, no msg, no hidden msg, no aspartame), is using Thrive’s Unadvertised Specials and the Q Club.

Since unadvertised specials, which can save up to 45% off of the retail price, are NOT published on the Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) website, then to receive these you must have a relationship with a Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) Consultant.  The consultant sends these to you via email, newsletter and/or has them on their website password protected.  These are the distribution requirements by Thrive Life corporate office.

How Survive-Thrive.Us Distributes Unadvertised Specials to Potential Customers:

1.    We require all customers or potential customers to sign up for our Email Newsletter.  Each month around the 2nd to the 5th day, we send out our newsletter.

2.    Within the newsletter there will be a link to the current unadvertised specials.  All unadvertised specials are subject to being discontinued at any time.

3.    Since unadvertised specials fluctuate how often that they are updated and to keep down the number of emails sent, we also post on the website, password protected, a copy of the current unadvertised specials.  So before purchasing you should check on the website to see if it has been updated.

4.    The website copy is password protected.  All customers are given the password.  It is subject to being periodically changed for security reasons.  If a customer loses or forgets the password, then please email me at thrive@northstate.net and I will resend the current password.

5.      Your information is not shared or sold by me.  Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) likewise does not share or sell your information.

Who Can Join Our Email Newsletter:

1.    Anyone who is not already signed up for the Q Club under a consultant.  (Exception:  Those who are a Q Club customer of a Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team member are allowed to sign up to the newsletter.  Write me first at thrive@northstate.net giving me your name so I can verify whether your consultant is on the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.)

2.    If you have purchased from another consultant, but are not enrolled as a Q Club customer, and you feel that the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry better meets your needs, then you will receive the newsletter if you decide to become our customer.  This means that you:

a.    Notify the consultant that you want to be taken off of their email list, newsletter, etc.

b.    Agree that the Survive-Thrive.Us newsletter and other communications are proprietary and will not share them with a non-ministry consultant.  We go to great lengths to minimize any potential conflict of interest and mitigate any risks of inadvertent copyright violations for the benefit of everyone.

c.    Should you decide at some point that you wish to discontinue being a Survive-Thrive.Us ministry customer, then you notify us in writing to take you off all communication lists.  We will quickly comply with your wishes.

 When You Become Our Customer, Then You Give Us Permission:

1.    Send you our newsletter, special sales or important food news.

You will be added to our email database hosted currently by Constant Contact.

We are conservative in sending out emails and other communications.  We realize it is a privilege and respect the trust you have given.

Survive-Thrive.Us and its ministry team members have a team approach and work closely together on many projects.  We have an agreement we do not take customers from each other.  Therefore, when we are entering your customer information into the Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) database, if you are already in the database, then we will need to take steps not to break our agreement. 

Please note if you are associated with a ministry team consultant you are eligible to join this website’s newsletter.

 Who Is Not Eligible to Become a Customer or Join Our Email Newsletter:

1.    A Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

2.    A family member of a Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

Natural” or “All Natural” Misleading Food Labels

Natural” or “All Natural” Misleading Food Labels

The Problem:

When you see the word “Natural” or “All Natural” on any food labels a red flag should be raised in your mind.  The ingredients of any product using “Natural” or “All Natural” should be closely examined

Why are “Natural” or “All Natural” Misleading Food Labels?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has no standards or definitions as to what is a “natural” food.  (Compare that to the detailed standards of what is an “organic” food and you’ll see it is the difference between night and day.)

With the lack of any standards, companies just come up with their own definition that fits their marketing plans.  Moreover, the terms “natural” and “all natural” are used on food labels to confuse the consumer into thinking that the food is organic.  Reality is that “natural” foods are far from organic standards, courtesy of the agricultural bio tech companies (i.e., Monsanto, Dow AgroSciences) and the food processing industry.

As the Cornucopia Institute (2011) stated:

…[T]he farms and processing plants that produce ingredients for “natural” foods are not prohibited by law from using dangerous pesticides, genetically engineered crops, fumigants, solvents and toxic processing aids.  These agricultural and manufacturing inputs are not required by law to be listed on ingredient labels.

Misrepresentation, Deceptive “Cancer” Within the Food Processing Industry

The Cornucopia Institute sent several “all natural” and “natural” labeled cereals to an independent research facility for analysis to see whether the claims were accurate.  The results were shocking.  Kashi “Go Lean” found 100% GMO soy in the cereal.  Kix Cereal, advertised as “All Natural Corn” had 56% of its corn content GMO corn.  Barbara’s Puffins cereal, touting a label “All natural since 1971” migrated from being organic to primarily genetically engineered.  There were similar findings for other “all natural” and “natural” cereals and granolas. (Click here for report by Rodale, “11 Natural Cereals That Aren’t”)

Even Monsanto, the company that is at the forefront of genetically modifying the food supply, defines on its corporate website “Gentically Modified Organisms (GMO):

Plants or animals that have had their genetic makeup altered to exhibit traits that are not naturally theirs.  In general, genes are taken (copied) from one organism that shows a desired trait and transferred into the genetic code of another organism.

So do you think these industry food labeling practices amount to misrepresentation, fraud, products liability or unfair and deceptive trade practices?

Some consumers think so and have started suing companies in class action suits.  Frito-Lay (owned by PepsiCo) was sued for misrepresentation, unfair trade and products liability regarding most of their food products. Similar lawsuits have been filed regarding misleading “all natural”  food label claims against Kraft, Kellogg and ConAgra.

I do not blame these consumers.  Since government fails to address these abuses, then maybe more class action lawsuits need to be filed against these companiesIf they are going to use the term “natural” on their food labels then it should convey that the food product is free of “unnatural” ingredients, such as GMOs and pesticide residues.  Additionally the Cornucopia Institute noted these so called “natural” products “are not protected from toxic fumigants used on crops in storage, and toxic solvents used during processing.”

Fight Back & Improve Your Health

Until the government becomes pro-consumer on this issue, you should:

1.        When buying processed food, if the ingredients do not use the term “organic” and has soy, corn, cottonseed oil, canola, refined sugar, sugar beets, crookneck squash, papaya or zucchini, assume GMO seeds were used.

2.        Look for foods labeled organic, GMO free or non-GMOYou can’t assume and trust these days anymore that things are by their marketing presentation.  IT MUST BE ON THE FOOD LABEL OR ON CONTAINED IN A WRITTEN DOCUMENT (i.e. Thrive’s written allergen and product details report) OR IT IS NOT ORGANIC, GMO FREE OR NON-GMO.  This is the only means we have left to hold food manufacturers accountable for what you put inside your body.

3.        Buy meats in which the animal was not given the bovine growth hormone.

4.        Buy dairy products that are rBGH and rbst free.

5.        Stop patronizing food processing manufacturers that use GMOs, have pesticide residues or use fumigants, solvents or toxic processing aids.

 

Addendum to Post:

Since posting this page, Dr. Mercola, published his own analysis of the situation.  You should read it.  It confirms everything I wrote and more.

My questions to you:

   Do you desire to be healthy or want to keep you and your family’s health?

   Do you want to spend less money on health care in the long run?

   Do you want the best quality of life?

  Why would you pay someone or some company your hard earned money for food that puts you at risk and potentially is damaging to your health?

These companies giving us all of these GMOs, putting neurotoxins or excitotoxins in their processed food (to improve their taste and get us “addicted” so they’ll have more sales) will not be there when we suffer with  all numerous serious health conditions and the aftermath.   They also will not be paying your medical bills or watching your savings erode (the financial struggles) trying to treat your illness.

No, they have already laughed their way to their bank.  If you try to sue them, they’ll claim:  (1) Caveat emptor (meaning “buyer beware”); and (2) You can’t prove that they were responsible since so many other food items you bought were contaminated.

The way to win is minimize your riskDon’t buy their food!  When you buy their food you’re subsidizing socially irresponsible conduct.  When you don’t buy their food, you let them accept their just fate.  If enough people did this, these companies will either change their ways or go out of business.

It is really simple.  We have the power.  It only takes a small percentage of people to vote with their dollars to get the job done.  We know the economy is challenged.  These companies are more vulnerable financially than you are.  If they lose a small percentage of business it means either selling their company, shutting it down or filing for bankruptcy protection.

Healthier Than the Grocery Store:

No Hidden MSG, GMOs or Aspartame

Thrive Foods are high quality, foods that are healthier than the grocery store: natural grains, vegetables, non-hormone meat and poultry, dairy, yogurt, beans, and more.   When you buy the actual ingredient (rather than prepared or processed foods) you have more control over the quality of your food.

Our method of freeze drying food kills the salmonella, e.coli and other viruses and bacteria while preserving 98% of the natural phytonutrients.  No chemical vitamins or preservatives are added!  Plus you get a bonus of foods coming chopped, diced and prepared (thus cutting cooking and prep time 50% or more).  You only add water, wait 5 minutes and then drain off the water.

From an analysis of studies and objective medical literature and research, the quality of our food supply is being attacked in three separate ways:

  • The use of GMO (genetically modified organisms) foods and food  additives;
  • The injection and use of bovine growth hormone on animals and overuse of antibiotics with meat and/or poultry;  and
  • The use of neurotoxins and excitotoxins as additives for flavor enhancing and calorie reduction.

Did you know that now over 80% of the food in our grocery store contains one or more GMO (genetically modified organism) ingredients?  They’ve done this by modifying food crops that are commonly used as ingredients in processed foods:  Corn88%; Soy94%;  Canola90%; Cottonseed (oil)-90%; Sugar beets (refined sugar)-95%; Hawaiian Papaya50% +; Zucchiniover 24,000 acres; and Crookneck Squashover 24,000 acres.

This method of corporate farming, using Roundup, modifying seeds to be resistant to Roundup in which they alter the DNA through crossing species, in independents studies have been linked to a wide array of chronic, life threatening conditions: diabetes, cancer, heart disease, organ failure, etc.  In mice fed strictly a GMO diet after three generations were sterile.  Want to learn more about GMOs?  An excellent website is Institute for Responsible Technology.

Another reason many items in your grocery store are not healthy is the food additives put in processed food. You may not realize it but neurotoxins or excitotoxins get added to processed food.  In layman’s language an excitotoxin is any substance that causes brain cells to become very excited, start firing their impulses so rapidly that they become exhausted and prematurely die. 

Two common excitotoxins in our food supply are monosodium glutamate (MSG) and aspartame.  Most MSG in our foods is not listed as MSG on the ingredients because the FDA only requires MSG to be specifically identified if it is 99% pure grade.  Aspartame, an artificial sweetener, is also an excitotoxin.  It is responsible for about 75% of the complaints regarding food to the FDA.

Besides prematurely killing certain brain cells, which attacks the hypothalamus in our brain, these food additives are highly addictive, causing you to eat more food. This means food manufacturers sell more food.

 You and your family’s health would benefit tremendously by watching an interview with Dr. Russell Blaylock.  Dr. Blaylock is a board certified neurosurgeon, author and a is a leading researcher on neurotoxins and excitotoxins.  During this interview Dr. Blaylock  explains the science as well as sharing the numerous adverse effects to our nervous and endocrine system (i.e., causes obesity, increased diabetes, heart disease, cancer, reduced fertility, increased Alzheimer’s disease, etc.).  This interview was in March 2012 and has the latest research.

With all of these biotech and food additive attacks on our food supply, do you now see why I say Thrive Foods are healthier than the grocery store?

We vote on our health with our dollars.  We can improve our health by engaging more, examining food supplies, eating healthy foods, limiting exposure to environmental toxins and maximizing our vitamin and nutrient intake.

Thrive is Premium, Healthy Freeze Dried Food.

After battling multiple health issues (see “About Me”) and seeking GMO free (genetically modified organisms) foods for groceries and food storage, I came across Thrive as a solution to my food and nutrition needs.  It helps protect and build my immune system and reduce allergies.  There’s a growing body of medical research that GMOs, MSG, “hidden MSG”, and aspartame may be adversely affecting our health (see “Healthier than the Grocery Store”).  GMOs have been linked to altering DNA, increasing allergies and adversely affecting our immune system.  Studies of rats eating a GMO diet showed a variety of adverse effects on them, including, but not limited to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, infertility, organ failure, etc.  MSG and aspartame have also been negatively linked to the same or similar adverse health effects (see Allergens & Reactives”).
