Media won’t investigate medically-caused death numbers

by Jon Rappoport

May 16, 2018

Imagine a Congressional hearing held before media cameras, with reporters all over the US and Europe ready with shocking articles about one of the leading causes of death—

SENATOR: Sir, I have the numbers in front of me. How can you keep this secret from the public?

FDA COMMISSIONER: It’s not a secret, sir. Many experts know about it.

SENATOR: I’m looking through the trillion-dollar federal budget. I’m looking for the money allocated to fix this horrible situation. Where are those funds?

FDA COMMISSIONER: Nowhere.

I know major media won’t investigate medically-caused death numbers, because I’ve published reports for years, and I’ve contacted news people with the facts; and nothing happens.

So we begin with a few citations.

July 26, 2000, Journal of the American Medical Association; author, Dr. Barbara Starfield, revered public health expert at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health; “Is US health really the best in the world?”

MEDICAL RIGHTS DENIED

_________________________________________________________________

The infringement of medical rights and normal access to necessary types of pain medicine has been an ongoing issue for many years. How is it that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) or the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration), an unelected agency, has the legal authority to deny effective prescription pain killers by a doctor for a patient? Are these agencies more knowledgeable than the MD’s or is it politics as usual?

Countless patients who plead their case with their doctors are now suffering needlessly from excruciating pain because these agencies which are an arm of the federal government are presently restricting the use of certain prescription drugs that may be addictive. Drugs such as Vicodin(Hydrocodone), a pain reliever, was taken off of the market because it was found not only to be addictive but it also caused liver cancer. Yet, there are many other drugs, depending upon the frequency of their usage, that present other problems. Also, while medical marijuana is seen as a pain reliever, it has also been shown in studies to be addictive and also causes cancer. So what else is new. People who are denied pain relievers for certain ailments are also given regular doses of morphine which will, in the end be fatal.

Here is the case of the late, Ms. Siobhan Reynolds, founder of the Pain Relief Network. The Network was an advocate for adequate pain medication for patients and against the regulations and the negligent
behavior of those agencies such as the FDA and DEA. Doctors who are willing to provide for their patients are now under more scrutiny from these federal agencies when it comes to prescribing pain medicine. Ms. Reynolds whose recommendations would undercut the ability of federal agencies that violate the medical rights of American citizens were not heard.

Countering her recommendations at the time, the Assistant U.S. Attorney Tanya Treadway attempted to silence Reynolds with a gag order in the case of Dr. Stephen Schneider, who was indicted for “illegal drug trafficking” in December 2007. The gag order was very properly denied, but the U.S. Attorney’s Office responded with an inquisitorial and malicious Grand Jury proceeding against Reynolds, which bankrupted her organization. Although Grand Jury proceedings are secret in order to protect defendants, Reynolds’ desire to make all records public has been improperly denied, apparently in order to protect, not her innocence, but the guilt of the prosecutors.

Later, the Obama administration moved to restrict prescriptions of the most commonly used narcotic painkillers in the U.S. in an attempt to curb widespread abuse. Also, the DEA said it would reclassify
hydrocodone combination drugs such as Vicodin and put them in the category reserved for medical substances with the highest potential for harm.

In summary, if you or persons that you know are suffering from needless pain because your doctors are reluctant to administer certain pain medications, you now know the reason.

Psychiatric drugs are more dangerous than you have ever imagined. If youdrugs_dees haven’t been prescribed one yet, you are among the lucky few. If you or a loved one is taking psychiatric drugs, there is hope; but you need to understand the dangers and how to minimize the risk.

The following overview focuses on longer-term psychiatric drug hazards, although most of them can begin to develop within weeks. They are scientifically documented in my recent book Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal and my medical text Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry, Second Edition.

If you worked for a federal agency that was killing people at the rate of 100,000 a year, every year, like clockwork, and if you knew it, wouldn’t you feel compelled to say or do something about it?

At the FDA, which is, in fact, killing Americans at that rate, no one has ever felt the need to step forward and speak up.

10308126_655703157817352_3150440186206186545_nLet’s shift the venue and ask the same question. If you were a medical reporter for a major media outlet in the US, and you knew the above fact, wouldn’t you make it a priority to say something, write something, do something?

I’m talking about people like Sanjay Gupta (CNN, CBS), Gina Kolata (NY Times), Tim Johnson (ABC News), and Thomas Maugh II (LA Times).

And with that, let’s go to the smoking guns. The citation is: BMJ June 7, 2012 (BMJ 2012:344:e3989). Author, Jeanne Lenzer.

Lenzer refers to a report by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices: “It calculated that in 2011 prescription drugs were associated with two to four million people in the US experiencing ‘serious, disabling, or fatal injuries, including 128,000 deaths.'” More

Are You Getting Enough Fat in Your Diet?

Leave a comment

Are you getting enough fat in your diet? This may seem like an improbable question to most people and, indeed, after decades of being told by the FDA, the medical establishment and the media that fat is “bad” for us, it seems highly improbable that anyone would ask such a question. However, I ask you, nevertheless, and I believe I can supply the answer, as well: no.

For decades, we have been told that dietary fat – which was common to everyone’s diet for prior centuries, with no ill effects that we are aware of – is somehow the culprit in causing obesity and heart disease. Yet, as I shall show you, this is not only untrue, it is an outright lie, designed to deliberately create a population of obese sick people to sell drugs and medical services to, and that the medical establishment, the pharmaceuticals industry and the processed foods industry have all joined forces to promote, perpetuate and to profit immensely from this. They have, as their goal, not only the creation of a society of sick people, but actually seek to grow and expand that population of sick people, as these people are their bread and butter. Without a large population of people eating the foods that make them fat and sick, without a large population of people then seeking medical treatment for their various illnesses, without a large population of people buying various prescription drugs to “treat” their diseases, these three industries would go broke. The media aids this conspiracy – and it is a conspiracy – by creating and disseminating the propaganda necessary to convince us all, for decades, to eat a low fat diet and fat-free foods and to “just ask your doctor” for prescription drugs to treat the results of such a diet.

We all have a great deal of brainwashing to undo, regarding the role of fat in our diet. Contrary to the prevailing view that fat is “bad” for you, it is not only beneficial, but vital to your survival – and it does not cause atherosclerosis and heart disease, nor is it a causal factor in the development of cancer. In fact, fat actually protects your body from these conditions.

But, the main point I want to make is that the epidemic of obesity in our society is not caused by fat in our diet, but by the lack of fat in our diet. It is the introduction and widespread promotion of the low-fat diet and fat-free foods that have lead directly to the rise of obesity. How? First, you need to understand how your body works.

The body stores calories – from any type of food – as fat in order to build up a reserve energy source in the event of “famine.” If you are not supplying enough fat – or no fat at all – to your body, then it will be prompted to store more of what you eat as fat. Thus, the low-fat diet – and, in particular, fat-free foods, which are also laden with sugar – actually prompt more fat storage, not less. The result of eating a low-fat diet, then, is obesity. In contrast, if you are supplying your body with adequate dietary fat, your body will not feel the need to store as much fat. Thus, eating a high-fat diet has two effects: first, it supplies the body with enough fat to keep it from storing fat, and secondly, it satisfies your appetite more readily, thus keeping you from overeating.

If you have been eating a low fat diet and then change to a high fat diet, you will lose body fat as a result because your body will then store less fat, giving it an opportunity to burn off what it has stored.

Another myth that has been perpetrated upon us is that there is “good” fat and “bad” fat. The fact is that the so-called “bad” fat; i. e., saturated fat, is actually better for you than mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fats – and is certainly better than trans-fats. Why? Because, again, it better satisfies your body’s need for fat and less of it is required to do so.
