US gov’t may raise radiation exposure levels in food, drink, soil

This is truly insane!!!

 

Washington – The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is considering approval of a plan designed to dramatically increase permissible radiation contamination levels in food, water and soil after radiation events, including spills and dirty bomb attacks.

The Office of Radiation and Indoor Air (ORIA), the radiation extension of the EPA, has prepared a revision to the 1992 “Protective Action Guides” (PAG) that governs radiation protection conclusions on short-term and long-term cleanup levels, Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) reports.

Vigorously opposed by some agency experts, the plan is being discussed behind closed doors, notes PEER. “This critical debate is taking place entirely behind closed doors because this plan is ‘guidance’ and does not require public notice as a regulation would,” said PEER attorney Christine Erickson in a news release.

“We all deserve to know why some in the agency want to legitimize exposing the public to radiation at levels vastly higher than what EPA officially considers dangerous,” Erickson added.

Internal documents obtained by PEER under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit last autumn show that, under the updated PAG, a single glass of water could give the equivalent of a lifetime’s permissible exposure. According to PEER, the

new limits would cause a cancer in as much as every fourth person exposed. Read more…

The first GM food crop containing human genes is set to be approved for commercial production.

The first GM food crop containing human genes is set to be approved for commercial production.
The laboratory-created rice produces some of the human proteins found in breast milk and saliva.
Its U.S. developers say they could be used to treat children with diarrhoea, a major killer in the Third World.
The rice is a major step in so-called Frankenstein Foods, the first mingling of human-origin genes and those from plants. But the U.S. Department of Agriculture has already signalled it plans to allow commercial cultivation.
The rice’s producers, California-based Ventria Bioscience, have been given preliminary approval to grow it on more than 3,000 acres in Kansas. The company plans to harvest the proteins and use them in drinks, desserts, yogurt and muesli bars.
The news provoked horror among GM critics and consumer groups on both sides of the Atlantic.
GeneWatch UK, which monitors new GM foods, described it as “very disturbing”. Researcher Becky Price warned: “There are huge, huge health risks and people should rightly be concerned about this.”
Friends of the Earth campaigner Clare Oxborrow said: “Using food crops and fields as glorified drug factories is a very worrying development.
“If these pharmaceutical crops end up on consumers’ plates Read more…

Flu vaccine causing infant seizures; FDA to investigate

January 22, 2011 Comments off

The Sanofi-Aventis flu vaccine known as “Fluzone” is causing febrile seizures in children, the FDA revealed yesterday. According to the FDA, 42 cases of seizures have been reported in children receiving the Fluzone vaccine. Most of the children suffering seizures are under the age of two.

The FDA went out of its way to claim that even though these children suffered seizures, they’re all fine now. “All children recovered and no lasting effects have been seen,” the FDA said. Can you imagine them making such a statement about an herb that was found to cause seizures? This is a case where the FDA has clearly put itself in the position of defending the safety of the vaccine and downplaying the risk that it sends children into convulsions.

Nearly all the reported seizures occurred within 24 hours after the children received the Fluzone vaccine. This, according to vaccine apologists, is mere “coincidence.”

It is well established that only 1% – 10% of vaccine side effects are ever reported to the FDA. This means that potentially thousands of children have suffered seizures due to this flu vaccine.

Not surprisingly, the maker of the vaccine claims there’s no proof that the vaccine caused any seizures at all. “At this point no correlation between influenza vaccine and febrile seizures has been established,” said Sanofi-Aventis. “Adverse events after vaccination may be causally related to vaccine or may be coincidental.”

Both the drug maker and the FDA take the position that “vaccines are safe until proven dangerous.” This is the opposite of what commonsense precaution would require: That vaccines should be proven safe before being injected into the bodies of children.

And yet, as NaturalNews has reported many times, flu vaccines are never tested in randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled studies because the flu industry is unwilling to subject vaccines to actual scientific scrutiny. All flu vaccines are approved by the FDA without adequate safety testing, and then side effects (seizures, etc.) are “monitored” by the FDA to see if anything goes wrong. As the side effects reports begin to pour in, the FDA simply downplays those reports and claims no “causal link has been established.”

This is how America’s children are turned into medical experiments by the vaccine industry.

99% of Pregnant Women in US Test Positive for Multiple Chemicals Including Banned Ones, Study Shows

January 18, 2011 Comments off

The bodies of virtually all U.S. pregnant women carry multiple chemicals, including some banned since the 1970s and others used in common products such as non-stick cookware, processed foods and personal care products, according to a new study from UCSF. The study marks the first time that the number of chemicals to which pregnant women are exposed has been counted.

Analyzing data for 163 chemicals, researchers detected polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), organochlorine pesticides, perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), phenols, polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), phthalates, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and perchlorate in 99 to 100 percent of pregnant women. Among the chemicals found in the study group were PBDEs, compounds used as flame retardants now banned in many states including California, and dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane ( DDT), an organochlorine pesticide banned in Read more…

Early Cancer Screening Could Cause Millions of Deaths

Despite well-meaning warnings in government propaganda, early detection via full body scanning can pose a greater risk to radiation-borne cancers.

My early training was in biochemistry. I did several years of rotations through the department at MD Anderson that did human testing and development of new chemotherapeutic agents such nucleoside analogs. This department is called “Developmental Therapeutics”.

Part of our interdepartmental philosophy was to have brainstorming meetings with premiere researchers and clinicians from all over the world almost every day. One of the things that all these fathers and mothers of the chemotherapeutic industry agreed on was a particular “Cancer Model.” The model was essentially that cancer arises when cells get deranged by having their genetic programming changed in expression (covering and uncovering areas on the genes) or from actual mutation of the code and in some cases modification of the code by viruses (plasmid injection).

Most agreed that every man, woman and child under this model would develop cancers somewhere in their bodies every year several times (but they normally go away). Fortunately, the most common thing that happens to a cell when it is modified is for it to die (rather than it losing its inhibition to grow greedily into its neighbors and stimulate capillaries to support it and become a malignancy). Most mutations are non-viable. In addition, our cells have very aggressive repair mechanisms that fix transcription errors on a genetic level. In the event that the error is not fixed and some cells do grow, the immune system recognizes the cells as foreign and kills them.

My concern is that early detection of cancer at the cellular level will have us aggressively looking for the location of these early cancers. The main tool for finding early cancer location when you don’t know if it is in the lung, liver, colon, prostate, mouth or wherever is full body scanning. If you check out background radiation experience and compare it to other radiation experience you will find (on Wikipedia for example) that most of our exposure, other than background, is occupational or from medical testing and therapy. 75% of our exposure is from CAT scans.

It is very likely that aggressive use of scanning technology will double or triple the incidence of radiation-caused cancers in the diagnostic patient’s future. It is also likely that in cases the cancer cannot be found (it is occult), it is because it has already been destroyed by natural process or has died on its own. People will be encouraged to undergo “preventive regimes” of chemotherapy which also will cause a direct increase in other forms of cancer.
