      I thought some of you might be interested to know that the antibiotic
      Cipro contains fluoride. I knew Prozac contained fluoride but didn't
      know about Cipro. For those of you who don't know about the dark
      side of Bayer.....click on long and colorful history link.

      The FDA Is Sued

      By: Byron J. Richards, CCNSource: http://www.newswithviews.com Jan 10, 2008

      The New Year brings a surprise for the FDA - a lawsuit filed by
      Public Citizen seeking to force the FDA to do its pretended job of
      protecting American citizens from the dangers of drugs. Of course,
      the real FDA job, as prioritized by top FDA management, is to
      protect the sales of Big Pharma and create new market opportunities
      for Big Pharma and Big Biotech while using Americans for experimental purposes.

      The current suit
      <http://www.forbes.com/feeds/ap/2008/01/03/ap4492808.html>http://www.forbes.com/feeds/ap/2008/01/03/ap4492808.html
      revolves around the dangers of toxic fluoride-containing
      antibiotics. The two brand names involved are Johnson & Johnson's
      Levaquin and Bayer's Cipro. The German company, Bayer, has a long
      and colorful history
      <http://www.newswithviews.com/Richards/byron10.htm>http://www.newswithviews.com/Richards/byron10.htm
      of injuring Americans while its executives laugh all the way to the bank.

      These dangerous antibiotics cause ruptured and damaged tendons.
      Public Citizen had petitioned the FDA for a clear black box warning,
      rather than a
      warning buried deep in the fine print that no person fighting
      an illness would have the energy to read. The FDA refused to force
      the drug companies to make the warning clear, knowing that such a
      warning would reduce
      sales of the drugs and open the companies to lawsuits by those who
      have been injured.

      Now the FDA will get a chance to defend its pro Big Pharma
      anti-American position in court. Happy New Year, FDA. Hopefully this
      is the start of a new
      trend.

      Here are some of the other top headlines featuring the ineptitude
      going on in our health care system.

      *Pfizer - Lipitor Suit Moves Forward while Officials Flee the Law in Nigeria*

      Lipitor for lowering cholesterol (a statin) is the best selling drug
      of all time. A newly unveiled lawsuit
      <http://blogs.wsj.com/health>http://blogs.wsj.com/health 2007/12/20/
      a-jug-of-wine-a-loaf-of-bread-and-lipitor based on information
      provided by a top former Pfizer exec now turned
      whistleblower is showing that this stroke of marketing genius was
      based on blatantly illegal marketing and pushing the drug on
      Americans who really did
      not need it. As the poster child for the statin
      scam
      <http://www.newswithviews.com/Richards/byron10.htm>http://www.newswithviews.com/Richards/byron10.htm
      Pfizer has likely damaged the health of millions of Americans. Now
      there is an attempt to hit them where it counts, in the pocket book.

      Meanwhile, the morality of Pfizer continues to shine around the
      world as three top executives try to flee the law
      <http://online.wsj.com/article/SB119862605270249629.html?mod=health_home_stories>http://online.wsj.com/article/SB119862605270249629.html?mod=health_home_stories
      in Nigeria after killing and injuring children while conducting drug
      experiments. Such brutal experimentation in third world countries is
      common practice by Big Pharma, where regulation is lax and bad results commonly
      don't show up in the scientific literature and are not included as
      part of the drug's history when it is presented to the FDA for
      approval. Pfizer
      is facing 2 billion in damages in the Nigerian case and some of its
      top executives are literally on the run from the law. Hopefully the
      judge on the Lipitor case will take note of the fligh risk and hold
      top Pfizer execs without bail.

      The recent _Lipitor ads_ featuring the inventor of the
      artificial heart, Dr. Robert Jarvik, are now drawing the attention
      of lawmakers looking into
      the illegal nature of these ads.

      *Corn - When is Food No Longer Food?*

      Farmers growing corn for ethanol are no longer farmers in
      any traditional sense; they are part of the oil industry. It is now
      being reported
      <http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22301669/>http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22301669/
      that the millions of pounds of nitrogen-based fertilizer needed to
      grow the corn are entering the Mississippi and going out into the
      gulf wherein they create a 7,900-square-mile "dead zone" void of
      oxygen wherein fish, crabs and shrimp suffocate and hostile algae grow.

      Idiots on Capital Hill
      <<http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22303496/>http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22303496/>,
      wit the full support of the Bush administration, just passed a bill
      that wil dramatically boost ethanol use, making this problem much
      worse for years to come.

      There are other side effects in the agricultural market
      <http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20760839>http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20760839
      , such as driving up the cost of food as it is now more expensive to
      feed animals. Then there is the issue tha this means big profits for
      genetically modified seed producers lik Monsanto. The issue of the
      safety of GMO foods like corn has never been verified and is an
      incredibly dangerous experiment on our entire food suppl and the
      health of humans.

      Maybe it is a blessing in disguise that corn can be used for fuel. It
      is no longer safe to eat. Let's just hope that winds don't blow too
      much corn pollen into the neighboring crops and cross-contaminate
      what is left of a real food supply.

      *Dietary Supplement Trade Group Promotes Food Coloring Use*

      The International Alliance for Dietary/Food Supplement Associations
      (IADSA) is actively supporting
      <http://www.nutraingredients.com/news/ng.asp?id=81269-iadsa-codex-additives-colourings-southampton-study>http://www.nutraingredients.com/news/ng.asp?id=81269-iadsa-codex-additives-colourings-southampton-study
      the use of food coloring in dietary supplements, guidelines that are
      being written up for the proposed Codex guidelines that pose a grave
      threat to free access to dietary supplements in America.

      "Our aim is to ensure that the adopted levels are both safe for
      consumers and consistent with those widely used by the global food
      supplement industry," said David Pineda, IADSA's Director of
      Regulatory Affairs.

      Excuse me Mr. Pinhead, food coloring comes from coal tar and is a
      poison. It has no business being in dietary supplements in any
      amount. The only people who put it in dietary supplements are big
      drug companies that make vitamins (Bayer - One-A-Day and Wyeth -
      Centrum). I wouldn't put food-color containing vitamins in my body
      even if they were the last supplements left on earth - which is the
      goal of Codex. It is obvious that IADSA and Codex are nothing but
      European drug company efforts to control the sales of nutrients in
      America and around the world, ensuring that garbage synthetic
      vitamins are sold as natural and junk chemicals are allowed in products.

      When will the traitors in the U.S. trade groups wake up. The Natural
      Products Association (NPA, formerly NNFA) is a member of IADSA and has
      supported the IADSA/Big Pharma positions. NPA is leading its members
      down a booby-trapped path that has nothing to do with the principles of
      natural health. NPA is failing to warn its members regarding the
      extreme dangers CODEX poses
      <http://www.thenhf.com/codex/codex_handout.pdf>http://www.thenhf.com/codex/codex_handout.pdf
      to Americans.

      *Spotlight Shines on Ineptitude of Medical Sinus Treatments*

      The /Journal of the American Medical Association
      <http://jama.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/full/298/21/2487%C2%A0>http://jama.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/full/298/21/2487
      has just published a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled
      study showing that the use of antibiotics and nasal steroids is
      ineffective at treating sinusitis.

      Each year there are 25 million visits to a doctor in the United
      States totreat sinus problems; the overwhelming majority are viral in
      nature. Despite repeated warnings of germ resistance from antibiotic
      prescription overuse, U.S. physicians still prescribe an antibiotic
      at least 85 percentof the time. Now there is iron-clad scientific
      proof that this strategy doesnot work.

      What is not discussed in this study is the rampant epidemic of
      Candidam Albicans that is caused by this flagrant malpractice of
      medicine. Physicians routinely cause life-long infections with
      /Candida Albicans/ which seriously deteriorate the health and quality
      of life of their patients who receive repeating doses of antibiotics.

      It is now also quite clear that repeated doses of antibiotics in
      infants isa cause of the epidemic of asthma
      <http://www.wellnessresources.com/newsroom/index.php/health/articles/antibiotics_in_children_cause_asthma/%3Ein>http://www.wellnessresources.com/newsroom/index.php/health/articles/antibiotics_in_children_cause_asthma/
      in children (mostly as a side effect of Candida infection).

      It is becoming painfully obvious to everyone that medical
      doctorscannot be trusted to do a competent job and are guilty of
      practicing medicine
      with a useless license. Thankfully, many natural remedies can easily
      take care of sinus problems without damaging a person's health for life.

      *Common Diabetes Drug Causes Bone Loss - Medical Profession in a Funk*

      The commonly used and much maligned diabetes drug, Avandia, just
      tookanother spill down the stairs. A new mouse study\
      <http://health.msn.com/health-topics/pain-management/arthritis/articlepage.aspx?cp-documentid=100182266>http://health.msn.com/health-topics/pain-management/arthritis/articlepage.aspx?cp-documentid=100182266

      shows that the drug weakens bones and is likely to cause osteoporosis
      in themillions of users in the United States. The drug was shown to get
      directlyin the way of healthy bone function, causing accelerated bone
      loss and slowed bone growth.

      Senior study author Ron Evans, not wanting to step on
      GlaxoSmithKline's toes, had this to say about Avandia "We do not
      recommend that people
      stop their treatment. You must balance the benefits against the complications."

      So how do the millions of people taking this drugs balance the risks
      againstthe benefits? Well maybe they go to the FDA website
      <http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/2007/NEW01636.html>http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/2007/NEW01636.html
      where they will
      find that in May the FDA warned of "a potentially significant
      increase in therisk of heart attack and heart-related deaths in
      patients taking Avandia."
      Yes, that is a 43% increased risk
      <http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=81240>http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=81240
      .

      So now we have a drug that causes serious bone disease and heart
      disease.The FDA has left it on the market so that you the consumer and your
      too-busy doctor can sort out if this poison is right for you.

      The drug-pushing quick-fix paradigm of Western Medicine, existing
      almost solely to prop up the profits of multi-national drug companies and rape
      the American public of wealth, is a scam gone wild.

      Doctors are overworked and generally inept at fixing anything without
      drugs, especially a complex and labor-intensive problem like
      diabetes. Consumers are naive to think that years of poor choices and
      a polluted food supply can be fixed by drugs.

      Diabetes is a project. There are no quick fixes. Individuals must be
      consistent with many healthy habits if they are to have a chance of
      recovering their health.
