In Food, Inc., award-winning filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on the US food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of the US government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. The American nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and the environment. They now produce bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won’t go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. The US is riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.

Soon, it will be the same in Malaysia, if not already so…..

WHO scandal exposed: Advisors received kickbacks from H1N1 vaccine manufacturers
A stunning new report reveals that top scientists who convinced the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare H1N1 a global pandemic held close financial ties to the drug companies that profited from the sale of those vaccines. This report, published in the British Medical Journal, exposes the hidden ties that drove WHO to declare a pandemic, resulting in billions of dollars in profits for vaccine manufacturers.

Several key advisors who urged WHO to declare a pandemic received direct financial compensation from the very same vaccine manufacturers who received a windfall of profits from the pandemic announcement. During all this, WHO refused to disclose any conflicts of interests between its top advisors and the drug companies who would financially benefit from its decisions.

All the kickbacks, in other words, were swept under the table and kept silent, and WHO somehow didn’t think it was important to let the world know that it was receiving policy advice from individuals who stood to make millions of dollars when a pandemic was declared.

WHO credibility destroyed

The report was authored by Deborah Cohen (BMJ features editor), and Philip Carter, a journalist who works for the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in London. In their report, Cohen states, “…our investigation has revealed damaging issues. If these are not addressed, H1N1 may yet claim its biggest victim — the credibility of the WHO and the trust in the global public health system.”

In response to the report, WHO secretary-general Dr Margaret Chan defended the secrecy, saying that WHO intentionally kept the financial ties a secret in order to “…protect the integrity and independence of the members while doing this critical work… [and] also to ensure transparency.”

Dr Chan apparently does not understand the meaning of the word “transparency.” Then again, WHO has always twisted reality in order to serve its corporate masters, the pharmaceutical giants who profit from disease. To say that they are keeping the financial ties a secret in order to “protect the integrity” of the members is like saying we’re all serving alcohol at tonight’s AA meeting in order to keep everybody off the bottle.

It just flat out makes no sense.

But since when did making sense have anything to do with WHO’s decision process anyway?

Even Fiona Godlee, editor of the BMJ, had harsh words for the WHO, saying, “…its credibility has been badly damaged. WHO must act now to restore its credibility.”

Yet more criticism for WHO

The BMJ isn’t the only medical publication criticizing WHO for its poor handling of conflicts of interest. Another report from the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly also criticized WHO, saying: “Parliamentary Assembly is alarmed about the way in which the H1N1 influenza pandemic has been handled, not only by the World Health Organization (WHO), but also by the competent health authorities at the level of the European Union and at national level.” It went on to explain that WHO’s actions led to “a waste of large sums of public money, and also unjustified scares and fears about health risks faced by the European public at large.”

The funny thing is, NaturalNews and other natural health advocates told you all the same thing a year ago, and we didn’t have to spend millions of dollars on a study to arrive at this conclusion. It was obvious to anyone who knows just how corrupt the sick-care industry really is. They’ll do practically anything to make more money, including bribing WHO scientific advisors and paying them kickbacks once the vaccine sales surge.

The vaccine industry and all its drug pushers are, of course, criticizing this investigative report. They say WHO “had no choice” but to declare a pandemic and recommend vaccines, since vaccines are the only treatment option for influenza. That’s a lie, of course: Vitamin D has been scientifically proven to be five times more effective than vaccines at preventing influenza infections, but WHO never recommended vitamin D to anyone.

The entire focus was on pushing more high-profit vaccines, not recommending the things that would actually help people the most. And now we know why: The more vulnerable people were to the pandemic, the more would be killed by H1N1, thereby “proving” the importance of vaccination programs.

People were kept ignorant of natural remedies, in other words, to make sure more people died and a more urgent call for mass vaccination programs could be carried out. (A few lives never gets in the way of Big Pharma profits, does it?)

How the scam really worked

Here’s a summary of how the WHO vaccine scam worked:

Step 1) Exaggerate the risk: WHO hypes up the pandemic risk by declaring a phase 6 pandemic even when the mortality rate of the virus was so low that it could be halted with simple vitamin D supplements.

Step 2) Urge countries to stockpile: WHO urged nations around the world to stockpile H1N1 vaccines, calling it a “public health emergency.”

Step 3) Collect the cash: Countries spend billions of dollars buying and stockpiling H1N1 vaccines while Big Pharma pockets the cash.

Step 4) Get your kickbacks: WHO advisors, meanwhile, collected their kickbacks from the vaccine manufacturers. Those kickbacks were intentionally kept secret.

Step 5) Keep people afraid: In order to keep demand for the vaccines as high as possible, WHO continued to flame the fears by warning that H1N1 was extremely dangerous and everybody should continue to get vaccinated. (The CDC echoed the same message in the USA.)

This is how WHO pulled off one of the greatest vaccine pandemic scams in the last century, and it worked like gangbusters. WHO advisors walked away with loads of cash, the drug companies stockpiled huge profits, and the taxpayers of nations around the world were left saddled with useless vaccines rotting on the shelves that will soon have to be destroyed (at additional taxpayer cost, no doubt) or dumped down the drain (where they will contaminate the waterways).

Meanwhile, nobody dared tell the public the truth about vitamin D, thereby ensuring that the next pandemic will give them another opportunity to repeat the exact same scam (for yet more profit).

The criminality of the vaccine industry

The bottom line is all this is a frightening picture of just how pathetic the vaccine industry has become and how corrupt the WHO and the CDC really are. What took place here is called corruption and bribery, folks. Kickbacks were paid, lies were told and governments were swindled out of billions of dollars. These are felony crimes being committed by our global health leaders.

The real question is: Why do governments continue to allow public health organizations to be so easily corrupted by the vaccine industry? And who will stand up to this profit conspiracy that exploits members of the public as if they were profit-generating guinea pigs?

The next time you hear the WHO say anything, just remember: Their advisors are on the take from the drug companies, and just about anything you’re likely to hear from the World Health Organization originates with a profit motive rather than a commitment to public health.

Oh, and by the way… for the record, there has never been a single scientific study ever published showing that H1N1 vaccines worked. Not only was the H1N1 pandemic a fraud to begin with, but the medicine they claimed treated it was also based on fraud. And now we know the rest of the story of why it was all done: Kickbacks from Big Pharma, paid to advisors who told WHO to declare a pandemic.

So drinking a few glasses of red wine isn’t going to help, as far as getting resveratrol is concerned.

And do you notice that people who live to a very old age eat very little? The lessons have been there all this while – we just fail to see it. Or refuse to believe it ………. Randolph

Resveratrol — Remarkable Anti-aging Supplement

It’s been several years since I talked about resveratrol. It’s this wonderful substance in red wine. You’ve probably read about it and maybe felt all you had to do to take advantage of it is serve yourself a nice glass of Merlot every night. Well, unfortunately, the “French paradox” to the contrary notwithstanding, it is impossible to drink enough red wine to get enough of this incredibly useful substance. You’d need about 500 bottles of wine and you’d fry your liver with the alcohol before you got enough of the resveratrol for the day.

My friend, Nick Temple, gave me a great article this week from the August, 2009 issue of the Life Extension Foundation’s magazine. I respect these folks. They have championed the alternative healing arts, particularly as they pertain to anti-aging, for many years.

The article Nick gave me is called “Extending Life and Fighting Disease with Resveratrol” by Julius Goepp, M.D. I’ll quote you a couple of Dr. Goepp’s opening paragraphs to give you an idea of the exciting nature of the information on this amazing supplement:

“At the forefront of the cutting-edge investigations into resveratrol and health and longevity are Drs. Christoph Westphal and David Sinclair.

Christoph Westphal, MD, PhD, has been referred to by Fortune Magazine as ‘dreamer-in-chief’ of biotech startup company Sirtris Pharmaceuticals based near Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. The moniker is well-earned; Westphal’s dreams appear to include the application of some very exciting science toward the goal of life extension by utilizing resveratrol.

Westphal’s work builds on (and incorporates) that of Harvard scientist David Sinclair, PhD, whose research group is pursuing connections buried deep in the cells of every animal on the planet, that of caloric restriction and longevity. Thanks to the work of Westphal and Sinclair, it is becoming clear that resveratrol mimics the life span-prolonging effects of caloric restriction, even in animals fed normal to high-fat diets.”

I have been aware of Sinclair’s work as a result of reading some of the Life Extension articles on it in the last few years. It has been proven that any animal, including humans, can extend their lifespan by about 40% simply by cutting the intake of daily calories by about 40%. This has been shown to be effective regardless of when it was started during the lifespan of the critter (or human being). Isn’t that great? Just cut what you eat almost in half for the rest of your life and you’ll live a long time. Hmmmmm. I don’t see that this promise has attracted that many of us to adopt that type of restriction on our lifestyle. On the contrary, in spite of knowing this, we still “eat on” and usually become overweight, obese and in ill health.

But what if the same life-extending effect were possible without cutting the calories? Would you be interested? I sure was. To understand this phenomenal property of resveratrol, you need to get familiar with something called “sirtuins.” Here’s how Dr. Goepp describes them:

“The specific molecules…turn out to be members of a protein family called the sirtuins (for silent information regulators), which are activated by caloric restriction. Like a combination of cellular police, fire and ambulance services, sirtuins exert myriad effects aimed at preserving intra-cellular civilization–they stabilize chromosomes and DNA molecules, preventing breaks and damage that can lead to cancer; they promote DNA repair, and they regulate genetic functions that in turn control every activity in the living cell. Most remarkably, decreased sirtuin activity seems to be intimately connected with the cell, tissue and organ changes that typically occur with aging and lead to many of the diseases we label ‘chronic age-related conditions’ such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.”

At the National Institute on Aging, Dr. Sinclair’s research team experimented with giving resveratrol to mice just as they had done with their caloric restriction studies. Remarkably, they found that the same effects appeared in the resveratrol mice. Elderly mice fed resveratrol along with a normal diet showed a dramatic reduction in signs of aging. The changes in the gene expression were exactly the same as those observed with caloric restriction. What were the changes:

1. Decreased protein loss in urine.
2. Decreased inflammation.
3. Increased elasticity in the aorta.
4. Beneficial changes in blood vessel lning cells.
5. Greater motor coordination.
6. Reduced cataract formation.
7. Preserved bone mineral density.

As Dr. Goepp says: “This study, begun when the mice were at mid-life, did not show any increases in longevity–but translated into human terms, these mice would have enjoyed dramatic improvements in the quality of their lives.”

Then pathologists at Harvard, working with Dr. Sinclair, found that, in fact, length of life actually did result when they fed the mice on a high-calorie diet the resveratrol. That was the only change. The resveratrol mice experienced changes associated with an increase in life span. These included:

1. Increased insulin sensitivity.
2. Increased numbers of mitochondria in cells.
3. Improved motor function.

In fact, the researchers discovered that the resveratrol reversed the effects of the high-calorie diet in 144 out of 153 biochemical pathways!

Does that get your attention? It should. But how about other studies. There have been many all over the world. He recounts studies in Korea, Canada, China, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Hong Kong, Spain, India and the U.S. It seems that conventional cardiologists are agreeing, literally for the first time, that atherosclerosis (the most common form of heart disease) is reversible using resveratrol. It has been found to work in both prevention and treatment of cancer.

If you want to start taking resveratrol regularly, as I am, you’ll find it on many websites. The most effective form is called “trans-resveratrol.” You will find it and many other sources by just doing a Google search for “trans-resveratrol.” I’ll be interested in your feedback once you try it.
