The health timebomb

Recommended Posts

According to barrie trower microwaves actually boost bacterium while proving deleterious to other larger lifeforms. This means that while our immune systems are compromised by microwaves the microbes that our immune systems are trying to fight will get stronger. This therefore represents a toxifying of our environment with obvious effects...


5G From Space: “Not One Inch of The Globe Will Be Free of Radiation”

By Children’s Health Defense

In November of 2018, the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) authorised the rocket company SpaceX, owned by the entrepreneur Elon Musk, to launch a fleet of 7,518 satellites to complete SpaceX’s ambitious scheme to provide global satellite broadband services to every corner of the Earth.

The satellites will operate at a height of approximately 210 miles, and irradiate the Earth with extremely high frequencies between 37.5 GHz and 42 GHz. This fleet will be in addition to a smaller SpaceX fleet of 4,425 satellites, already authorized earlier in the year by the FCC, which will orbit the Earth at a height of approximately 750 miles and is set to bathe us in frequencies between 12 GHz and 30 GHz. The grand total of SpaceX satellites is thus projected to reach just under 12,000.

There are at present approximately two thousand fully functioning satellites orbiting the Earth. Some beam down commercial GPS (or “SatNav”), some provide TV, some provide mobile phone services, and some bounce radar back and forth to produce images for meteorologists and military surveillance. The Earth is thus already comprehensively irradiated from outer space.


But the new SpaceX fleets will constitute a massive increase in the number of satellites in the skies above us, and a correspondingly massive increase in the radiation reaching the Earth from them. The SpaceX satellite fleet is, however, just one of several that are due to be launched in the next few years, all serving the same purpose of providing global broadband services. Other companies, including Boeing, One Web and Spire Global are each launching their own smaller fleets, bringing the total number of projected new broadband satellites to around 20,000 – every one of them dedicated to irradiating the Earth at similar frequencies (fig. 1). 1

… what is really driving it is the creation of the conditions within which electronic or “artificial” intelligence will be able to assume an ever greater presence in our lives.

Why is there this sudden flurry of activity? The new satellite fleets are contributing to a concerted global effort to “upgrade” the electromagnetic environment of the Earth. The upgrade is commonly referred to as 5G, or fifth generation wireless network. It has become customary in tech circles to talk about the introduction of 5G as involving the creation of a new global “electronic ecosystem”. It amounts to geo-engineering on a scale never before attempted. While this is being sold to the public as an enhancement of the quality of video streaming for media and entertainment, what is really driving it is the creation of the conditions within which electronic or “artificial” intelligence will be able to assume an ever greater presence in our lives.

In a previous article for New View(“Radiation, Robot Bees and 5G”, New View, 85, Autumn 2017), I described how the introduction of 5G will require hundreds of thousands of new mini mobile phone masts (also referred to as “base stations”) in urban centres throughout the UK, and literally millions of new masts in cities throughout the rest of the world, all emitting radiation at frequencies and at power levels far higher than those to which we are presently subjected.

These new masts are much smaller than the masts we currently see beside our motorways and on top of buildings. They will be discreetly attached to the side of shops and offices or secured to lampposts. The 20,000 satellites are a necessary supplement to this land-based effort, for they will guarantee that rural areas, lakes, mountains, forests, oceans and wildernesses, where there are neither buildings nor lampposts, will all be incorporated into the new electronic infrastructure. Not one inch of the globe will be free of radiation.

Given the scale of the project, it is surprising how few people are aware of the enormity of what is now just beginning to unfold all around us. Very few people have even heard about the 20,000 new satellites that are due to transform the planet into a so-called “smart planet”, irradiating us night and day. In the national media, we do not hear voices questioning the wisdom, let alone the ethics, of geo-engineering a new global electromagnetic environment.

But the question we should ask is whether we also want increasingly intense exposure of the natural environment and all living creatures, including ourselves, to more and more electromagnetic radiation.

I am a child of the 70's. Before I was of school age of 5, believe it or not, I had measles, mumps, chicken pox and whooping cough, survived to tell the tale.

Then once I got to school, all the injections and sugar lumps with vaccines started.



I went to grade school in the 60's and middle and high school in the 70's.  Almost no one in any one of my schools had any kind of serious allergy or immune disorder, and yet today these ailments are common and rampant among school-age children.  This is because their bodies have created unnatural immune responses to all the toxic garbage and adjuvents in the dozens of vaccines they are required to get.  Their bodies will now be attacking themselves for the rest of their lives.

Energy drinks risking potentially fatal heart rhythm disruption - but it's not the caffeine, scientists find

By Henry Bodkin, Science Correspondent

29 May 2019 • 5:03pm
Energy drinks are causing potentially fatal heart disorders that are not explained by their high caffeine content, a study has found.

Experts have warned people with congenital heart conditions and high blood pressure to limit their use of the drinks after the largest study yet found they caused substantial interference in the electric signals that govern the organ.

A trial of participants between the ages of 18 and 40 revealed the speed at which the heart reset itself after beating was altered at least four hours after consuming an energy drink.

However, while the beverages tested were high in caffeine - between 304 and 320 milligrams per 32 fluid ounces - scientists would not expect to see electrocardiographic changes at doses under 400.

Instead, they believe the disturbance to the heart is being caused by an ingredient or combination of ingredients they do not yet understand

Anti-depressants CAN ruin lives: Major U-turn as psychiatrists say millions of patients MUST be warned over severe side effects

  • For years side effects of withdrawing from antidepressants were branded 'mild'
  • But the Royal College of Psychiatrists has now changed its position to 'severe'  
  • UK prescribes more antidepressants than any other Western country  

By Ben Spencer Medical Correspondent For The Daily Mail

Published: 22:00, 29 May 2019 | Updated: 09:04, 30 May 2019

Doctors have been told to warn millions of patients about the severe side effects of antidepressants.

In a major victory for the Daily Mail, the Royal College of Psychiatrists today admits for the first time that coming off antidepressants can cause side effects lasting for months.

And in a move that could significantly reduce the over-use of the pills, the influential body said the potential harms of withdrawal are so serious that all patients should be warned of the risks when they are first prescribed the drugs.

For years, health officials have played down the difficulty of withdrawing from antidepressants, insisting side-effects were 'mild' and last no more than a week or two. But in a new 'position statement' published today, the Royal College admits some patients experience 'severe' side effects which can last weeks or even months.

In a major U-turn, it said the risk should always be discussed with patients when they are prescribed the drugs – and called on NHS watchdog NICE to change its guidance to reflect this position. 

Britons use more antidepressants than almost every other country in the Western world – which experts believes is partly due to a lack of awareness about the withdrawal problems.

Vaccines Did Not Save Us! Two Centuries of Official Statistics


Child Health Safety has compiled an excellent report on data the drug industry do not want you to see. Here are two centuries of UK, USA and Australian official death statistics which show conclusively and scientifically that modern medicine is not responsible for and played little part in substantially improved life expectancy and survival from disease in western economies.

The main advances in combating disease over 200 years have been better food and clean drinking water.  Improved sanitation, less overcrowded and better living conditions also contribute. This is also borne out in published peer reviewed research:

The Measles mortality graphs are enlightening [more below] and contradict the claims of Government health officials that vaccines have saved millions of lives.  It is an unscientific claim which the data show is untrue. Here you will also learn why vaccinations like mumps and rubella for children are medically unethical and can expose medical professionals to liability for criminal proceedings and civil damages for administering them.

Leaked FDA Study: Toxic “Forever Chemicals” Contaminate Many Foods

By Dagny Taggart

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has quietly revealed some troubling information about a class of toxic chemicals that the agency found in significant levels in our food supply.

At a recent scientific conference, the FDA shared the findings of its first broad testing of food for a worrisome class of nonstick, stain-resistant industrial compounds called per- and polyfluoroalykyl substances, or PFAS.

The FDA has not made its findings public yet, but agency researchers discussed the results at a conference held by the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry last week in Finland. The Environmental Defense Fund and the Environmental Working Group obtained the FDA presentation and provided it to The Associated Press.

Substantial levels of PFAS were found in grocery store meats and seafood and in off-the-shelf chocolate cake:


There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to serious adverse human health effects, including cancer, reproductive harm, developmental harm, high cholesterol, damage to the immune system, hormone disruption, weight gain in children and dieting adults, and liver and kidney damage. The presence of PFOA in the blood has been associated with increased cholesterol and uric acid levels, which can lead to kidney stones and gout.

Why did health chiefs clear the asthma drug that can make children suicidal? MoS investigation reveals yet more evidence of pill's sinister side-effects

  • Yael Borger was 16 when she nearly took her own life while taking montelukast 
  • Montelukast is an asthma drug known for its effects on mental health 
  • Her mother was shocked to find 'suicidal thoughts' was a side effect of the drug
  • Ms Borger, now 18, said: 'Being put on montelukast turned my life upside down'  
  • In 2018, there were almost three million prescriptions for the drug on the NHS

By Stephen Adams and Jo Willey For The Mail On Sunday

Published: 23:21, 8 June 2019 | Updated: 23:21, 8 June 2019

Standing frighteningly close to the edge of a 1,500ft high cliff, Yael Borger gazed down into the abyss. 

Aged just 16 at the time, and on a youth trip to Israel, a frighteningly powerful force had lured her to the very tip of Mount Masada, facing the sheer drop that falls away into the Dead Sea.

Every thought had melted away apart from one chilling word: Jump.

Recalling the awful moment in 2017, Yael admits: 'I went right to the edge.

'I knew exactly what would come of it if I did jump. But I felt that I wanted to do it anyway.

'In the end I forced myself to sit down to stop myself.'

From Glyphosate to Front Groups: Fraud, Deception and Toxic Tactics

Colin Todhunter
Jun 8, 2019

the Editor-in-Chief of the British Medical Journal and the British Medical Association Council Chairman, Chaand Nagpaul.

Her purpose is to not only draw attention to the impact of biocides, not least that of glyphosate, on health and the environment but also to bring attention to the corruption that allows this to continue.

Along with her letter, she enclosed a 13-page document. Readers can access the fully referenced document here: European Chemicals Agency classifies glyphosate as a substance that causes serious eye damage (or see the embedded version below).

It is worth reading in full to appreciate the conflicts of interest and the corruption that has led to the rise in certain illnesses and the destruction of the natural environment.

By way of a brief summary, the key points raised by Dr Mason and her claims include the following.

  • The European Chemicals Agency classifies glyphosate as a substance that causes serious eye damage. There has been a massive increase in the use of glyphosate in recent years. An increase in cataracts has been verified by epidemiological studies in England and by a 2016 WHO report.
  • There are shockingly high levels of weed killer in UK breakfast cereals. After testing these cereals at the Health Research Institute in Iowa, Dr Fagan, director of the centre, said: “These results are consistently concerning. The levels consumed in a single daily helping of any one of these cereals, even the one with the lowest level of contamination, is sufficient to put the person’s glyphosate levels above the levels that cause fatty liver disease in rats (and likely in people).”
  • The amount of glyphosate in tap water in South Wales has increased tenfold in a very short period.
  • Glyphosate is largely responsible for the destruction of biodiversity and an increase in the prevalence of many serious health conditions.
  • There are massive conflicts of interest throughout various agencies in the EU that ensure harmful agrochemicals like glyphosate come to market and remain there.
  • In fact, a global industry has emerged to give ‘advice’ on biocides regulation. This results in regulatory bodies effectively working to further the commercial interests of the pesticide industry.
  • The European Food Safety Authority sanctioned increased maximum pesticide residue levels (MRL) at the request of industry (Monsanto in this case, to 100 times the previously authorised MRL).
  • The Washington-based International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) is used by corporate backers to counter public health policies. Its members have occupied key positions on EU and UN regulatory panels. It is, however, an industry lobby group that masquerades as a scientific health charity. The ILSI describes its mission as “pursuing objectivity, clarity and reproducibility” to “benefit the public good”. But researchers from the University of Cambridge, Bocconi University in Milan, and the US Right to Know campaign assessed over 17,000 pages of documents under US freedom of information laws to present evidence of influence peddling.
  • ILSI Vice-President, Prof Alan Boobis, is currently the Chairman of the UK Committee on Toxicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment (CoT) (2015-2021). He was directly responsible for authorising chemicals such as glyphosate, chlorothalonil, clothianidin and chlorpyrifos that are destroying human health and creating a crisis in biodiversity. His group and others have authorised glyphosate repeatedly. He and David Coggon, the previous Chairman of CoT (2008-2015), were appointed as experts on Science Advice for Policy by European Academies (SAPEA), a group allied with the agrochemical industry and is fighting for higher pesticide exposure.
  • Jean-Claude Juncker the President of the European Commission who, against a petition from more than 1.5 million European citizens, re-authorised glyphosate in December 2017 for a further five years. He set up the Science Advisory Mechanism, aiming to put industry-friendly personnel on various committees.

There are many more claims presented by Rosemary Mason in her report. But the take-home point is that the reality of the agrochemical industry is masked by well-funded public relations machinery (which includes bodies like the UK’s Science Media Centre).

The industry also subverts official agencies and regulatory bodies and supports prolific lobby organisations and (‘public scientists’) which masquerade as objective institutions.

When such organisations or figures are exposed, they frequently cry foul and attempt to portray any exposure of their lack of integrity as constituting an attack on science itself; no doubt many readers will be familiar with the ‘anti-science’ epithet.

The industry resorts to such measures as it knows its products are harmful and cannot stand up to proper public scrutiny. And under a system of sustainable agroecology that can produce plentiful, nutritious food, it also knows its markets would disappear.

Motivated by fraud and fear of the truth emerging, it therefore tries to persuade politicians and the public that the world would starve without it and its products. It co-opts agencies and officials by various means and embeds itself within the policy agenda, both nationally and internationally.

And now, with increasingly saturated markets in the West, from Africa to India the industry seeks to colonise new regions and countries where it attempts to roll out its business model.

Whether, say, through trade agreements, the WTO or strings-attached loans, this again involves capturing the policy ground and then trapping farmers on a financially lucrative chemical(-GMO)-treadmill, regardless of the consequences for farmers’ livelihoods, food, public health and the environment.

This story in the papers this week about how statins aren't working for half the people they are given to. But lets consider that when doctors inform their patients that they have high cholesterol at least half of those patients will then make alterations to their diet and exercise routines to try and reduce their cholesterol so that even if no statins were prescribed we would likely see a reduction in the cholesterol of half of the patients anyway


So are the statins even responsible for the half of patients that do see changes to their cholesterol levels? If not then all that is being done is that millions of people are being exposed to the dangers of the side effects of statins and all at the  cost of the taxpayer who has to foot the bill for the NHS...


Statins lack desired effect for half of patients, study finds

Those who showed ‘sub-optimal’ response to cholesterol-lowering drugs also 22% more likely to develop heart disease

Press Association

Tue 16 Apr 2019 05.26 BST

Around half of patients who are prescribed statins do not see their cholesterol drop to desired levels within two years, new research suggests.

Guidelines from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) aim for a 40% or more reduction in low density lipoprotein cholesterol from the treatment.

However a new study, published in journal Heart, found half of people (51%) had a “sub-optimal” response after 24 months on the drugs.

The researchers, from the University of Nottingham, analysed data from 165,411 patients who were prescribed statins in primary care between 1990 and 2016.

They were on average 62 years old when they began treatment.

A total of 84,609 patients had a “sub-optimal” response after two years and did not record a reduction in cholesterol of 40% or more.

The researchers note that a higher proportion of patients with a “sub-optimal” response were prescribed lower potency doses, compared with those with an “optimal” response.

Patients who did not reach the targeted levels were 22% more likely to develop cardiovascular disease than those who did respond well, the study found.


The researchers said the study provides “real world evidence” about statins.

“These findings contribute to the debate on the effectiveness of statin therapy and highlight the need for personalised medicine in lipid management for patients,” they wrote.


I have had high cholesterol for years I'm now 62,my doctor had been pestering me to go on statins for a long time,I finally relented. After 6 months of being on them I started developing gout,I have never had it in my life, I did all the diet things, no sea food beer etc still every 6-8 weeks gout . I checked on the net and found pages and pages of people suffering tendinitis and gout while on statins, so I stopped taking them and haven't had an attack since  ,I eat sea food and drink beer again still no gout . Cholesterol is high again ,has been for quite a while  ,recently I had to have the arteries around my heart checked  for another problem and guess what I don't have any plaque in my arteries , go figure . A mate said he had to stop taking statins  because quote , it felt like my joints were falling apart. On the flip side I also have mates that have been on them for years with no apparent problems. I guess its the luck of the draw

French parents sue government to make it disclose nappy brands containing toxic chemicals

11 June 2019 • 1:14pm

Parents’ groups are suing the French government in a bid to force it to name brands of babies’ nappies that contain dangerous chemicals.

France’s national health agency, Anses, said in January that it had found traces of potentially toxic chemicals in disposable babies’ nappies that exceeded safety limits, but the brands concerned have never been named by the authorities.

Parents and the Child Health Association campaign group filed a joint lawsuit on Tuesday before France’s highest court, the Council of State.

They said they had written to the Health Ministry two months ago, asking for the names of the brands concerned, but never received a response.

Quentin Guillemain, a parent involved in the action, said: “We’re also asking for the withdrawal of dangerous nappies and better information for parents. This is a health emergency.” 

Tests detected the presence of substances such as hydrocarbons, dioxins and perfumes at levels potentially dangerous to health. The controversial weedkiller glyphosate was also found, but in smaller quantities.

It could also be our disconnection from nature and spending too much time in man made environments.

I would like to know how many of these sufferers were last stung by wild nettles?

The sting is not hugely painful and is gone in a few minutes, but afterwards, for me and others, anyway, my hayfever dissipates and my breathing gets a bit easier.

Ive suffered badly for near 20 years with hayfever, but the last two since walking my dog and doing the 'nettle brush-past' with my bare arms, Ive been relatively symptom free in comparison.

Nettles are everywhere in the UK, from march to november, the time of the pollens, nature knows best.

Opioid Manufacturer Insys to Pay $225 Million Settlement After Admitting to Bribing Doctors

Insys bribed doctors to subscribe their dangerous and highly addictive drugs, fueling the massive opioid epidemic in America.

Published 2 days ago on Jun 17, 2019

By Richard Moorhead


One of America’s biggest opioid manufacturers is set to pay a massive federal penalty after getting nailed for bribing doctors to prescribe their dangerous and highly addictive fentanyl painkillers. The distribution scheme of Insys Therapeutics, that pushed potent opiates into the hands of patients that did not need them, has been described as a driving force behind America’s ongoing public health epidemic stemming from use of the drugs.

Insys, an Arizona company that reported almost $150 million in revenue in 2017, contracted doctors who agreed to prescribe their drugs for sham speeches. In reality, the doctors were getting paid for issuing prescriptions of Subsys, the company’s fentanyl-based painkiller medication.

Insys’ reckoning in the federal court system thus far represents one of the most prominent judgements against the dark forces that pioneered America’s full-fledged opioid crisis. The company’s founder, billionaire pharmacist John Kapoor, was convicted of criminal racketeering in May with other Insys executives, and faces up to 20 years in prison upon sentencing.

A degree of public accountability being levied against Insys could spur the American public to demand criminal proceedings against other pioneers of the nation’s opioid crisis, most prominently among them the billionaire oligarch Sackler family. The Sacklers, one of America’s wealthiest families, developed and popularized a new generation of opioid-based painkillers, misrepresenting the potential dangers their products posed to the public and profiting off of them to the tunes of billions of dollars.

BREAKING: Big Pharma blood pressure drugs found laced with cancer-causing chemical; but FDA says don’t stop taking them

Tuesday, June 18, 2019 by: Mike Adams

For years, we’ve warned that Big Pharma’s business model is a “repeat business” racket that profits from sickness and disease. We also know that cancer is a multi-billion-dollar industry that generates huge profits from the repeat business of cancer “therapies” such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Now comes news that a popular blood pressure drug sold by Novartis has been found to be laced with a cancer-causing chemical known as “dimethylformamide.”

“A pharmacy warned the Food and Drug Administration that it found a chemical believed to cause cancer in a widely used blood pressure medication, according to a filing from the federal agency,” reports CNBC.

The drugs are part of a popular class of prescription medications the FDA has been quietly recalling after finding them to be laced with cancer-causing chemicals. Those drugs reportedly include valsartan, losartan and irbesartan.

Even more astonishingly, this chemical contamination was discovered by Valisure, an online pharmacy that operates across America. Valisure is apparently running contamination tests on the various medications it sells, and it found that valsartan, the blood pressure medication manufactured by Novartis, contains DMF (dimethylformamide), a chemical known to cause cancer.

The most dangerous pesticide you've never heard of

By Staffan Dahllof

Copenhagen, 17. Jun, 07:56


Chlorpyrifos has been approved on an EU level since 2006 - but eight states have banned, or never authorised, its use: Denmark, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia and Sweden


Scientists say there is no acceptable dose to avoid brain damage. Its use is banned in several European countries. Yet its residues are found in fruit baskets, on dinner plates, and in human urine samples from all over Europe. Now producers are pushing for a renewed EU approval – perhaps in vain.

The name is chlorpyrifos. Here is why the chemical and its risks are almost unknown to the public.


Chlorpyrifos kills insects on growing vegetables and fruit.

Thomas Backhaus, professor for ecotoxicology and environmental science at the University of Gothenburg, says that the substance took a long time to be recognised as one of the "nasty" ones.

"In comparison with glyphosate, the active substance in Roundup, chlorpyrifos has been flying under the radar. When we talk of herbicides like glyphosate that kill weed humans can cope because we don't have chlorophyll and don't get directly affected. When we talk about insecticides, you have the problem that they affect all developing animals, including humans," he says.

Backhaus' concerns are well known in academic circles and shared by other researchers.

Philippe Grandjean, professor in environmental medicine at the University of Southern Denmark and Harvard School of Public Health in the US, notes that brain damage connected to chlorpyrifos have been found at the lowest detectable dose.

"That means by definition that you can't define a dose tolerable for consumption – that dose must be zero," he says.

The industrialisation of fake food

18th June 2019

Industrial, imperial food systems have reduced food to a commodity, to 'stuff' that can then be constituted in the homogenised lab.
Food is not a commodity. It is not 'stuff' put together mechanically and artificially in labs and factories. Food is life. Food holds the contributions of all beings that make the food web, and it holds the potential for maintaining and regenerating the web of life.  Food also holds the potential for health and disease, depending on how it was grown and processed. Food is therefore the living currency of the web of life. 

Industrial agriculture 

As an ancient Upanishad reminds us: “Everything is food, everything is something else’s food." Good food is the basis for good health. But bad food, industrial food, fake food is the basis for disease."

Hippocrates said: “Let food be thy medicine”. In Ayurveda, India’s ancient science of life, food is called 'sarvausadha' the medicine that cures all disease.

Industrial food systems have reduced food to a commodity, to 'stuff' that can then be constituted in the lab. In the process both the planet’s health and our health has been nearly destroyed.

As much as 75 percent of the planetary destruction of soil, water, biodiversity, and 50 percent of greenhouse gas emissions come from industrial agriculture, which also contributes to 75 percent of food related chronic diseases.

Chemical agriculture does not return organic matter and fertility to the soil. Instead it is contributing to desertification and land degradation. It also demands more water since it destroys the soil’s natural water-holding capacity.

Food security

Industrial food systems have destroyed the biodiversity of the planet both through the spread of monocultures, and through the use of toxics and poisons that are killing bees, butterflies, insects, birds, and leading to the sixth mass extinction. 

Biodiversity-intensive and poison-free agriculture, on the other hand, produces more nutrition per acre while rejuvenating the planet. It shows the path to Zero Hunger in times of climate change.
