Just as we predicted, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has brazenly betrayed the public’s trust by approving the world’s first genetically modified (GM) animal in direct defiance of science – a transgenic salmon branded “AquAdvantage” that has never been proven safe for human consumption or the natural environment.
The New York Times (NYT) reports that AquAdvantage, a product of AquaBounty Technologies, has received official FDA approval after years of fierce lobbying by its manufacturer in favor of open approval. Despite repeated warnings from detractors that AquAdvantage poses serious threats to aquatic ecosystems and humans, the FDA has determined that this GM fish is completely safe for everything and everyone on the planet.

The Polonium Conspiracy Goes Far Deeper Than Just Tobacco
SOTN Editor’s Note:
Before the chemical geoengineering phenomenon known as CHEMTRAILS became a daily routine in the skies across America, there was arguably no greater public health disaster than polonium-laced tobacco. According to scientists who have investigated “The Polonium Conspiracy”, the phosphate fertilizers favored by the Tobacco Industry contain alpha-radioactive polonium, the decay product of Radium-226.
How does radioactive material get into a cigarette?
The tobacco leaves used in making cigarettes contain radioactive material, particularly lead-210 and polonium-210. The radionuclide content of tobacco leaves depends heavily on soil conditions and fertilizer use.
Soils that contain elevated radium lead to high radon gas emanations rising into the growing tobacco crop. Radon rapidly decays into a series of solid, highly radioactive metals (radon decay products). These metals cling to dust particles which in turn are collected by the sticky tobacco leaves. The sticky compound that seeps from the trichomes is not water-soluble, so the particles do not wash off in the rain. There they stay, through curing process, cutting, and manufacture into cigarettes.Lead-210 and Polonium-210 can be absorbed into tobacco leaves directly from the soil. But more importantly, fine, sticky hairs (called trichomes) on both sides of tobacco leaves grab airborne radioactive particles.
(Source: EPA — Tobacco Smoke)
Quite curiously, Big Tobacco has known about this predicament since the mid-1950s yet consistently failed to address it in any appropriate way. For this reason tobacco products have always possessed unacceptable levels of highly carcinogenic polonium. It has also been known that the primary cause of lung cancer among smokers is due to both the chemical properties and radioactivity associated with the polonium 210 radionuclides. Continue reading »
– Marijuana Kills Cancer, Says National Cancer Institute (Infowar, Aug 20, 2015):
NCI reveals how cannabis “may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death”
Cannabis kills cancer, the National Cancer Institute admits.
The institute recently updated its ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ page about marijuana to include various studies revealing how cannabis “may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow” while also protecting normal, healthy cells.
“A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in estrogen receptor positive and estrogen receptor negative breast cancer cells showed that it caused cancer cell death while having little effect on normal breast cells,” the NCI stated. “Studies in mouse models of metastatic breast cancer showed that cannabinoids may lessen the growth, number, and spread of tumors.”
Here’s the NCI’s full list: Continue reading »
Often times, when I do not add some related information to my posts, something like this happens …
The American Beverage Association commented here FDA Admits That Aspartame Is Toxic And Makes You Sick:
American Beverage Association, ABA Communications:
“Contrary to the misinformation cited here, extensive science verifies the safety of aspartame. In fact, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recently conducted an in-depth risk assessment on aspartame specifically, and deemed it safe for general consumption and pregnant women, as well as ruled out alleged health issues. Based on the body of science on this subject, aspartame is approved by more than 100 regulatory agencies around the globe, and is condoned by leading health organizations, including the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the American Diabetes Association. In sum, aspartame and the products that contain this ingredient can be enjoyed with confidence.”

– FDA Approves Opiate Painkillers For Children (Natural Blaze, Aug 14, 2015):
Yesterday, the Food and Drug Administration approved a powerful and addictive painkiller OxyContin for use in children ages 11 to 16 enduring sever and long-term pain. Purdue Pharmaceuticals notes that it reformulated its OxyContin in 2010 to hedge problems with addiction, overdose and death. Slower release was also a part of the reformulation.
Sudden doses of opioids can cause overdose and death especially without previous exposure. Deaths from painkillers have been a controversial topic in recent years. So much so that states that have legalized medical cannabis have seen a 25% drop in painkiller death rates. Continue reading »
– FDA Does Big Pharma’s Dirty Work Again, This Time to Censor the Benefits of Essential Oils (Activist Post, July 20, 2015):
In September of 2014, the FDA began a coordinated attack on companies that market essential oils. The top brands are dōTERRA and Young Living. Both companies offer essential oils to help manage a variety of symptoms ranging from headaches to anxiety to hyperactivity. Many essential oil users claim to have eliminated the need for over-the-counter medications due to using specific combinations of essential oils to target common maladies. Continue reading »

Has the “final revolution” arrived?
“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”

– FDA-approved drug turns ordinary people into obedient zombies… saps all free will… allows people to be programmed by the media or government… sold as transdermal patch (Natural News, July 19, 2015):
When I lived in Ecuador, I was warned about the pollen from the flower of a beautiful tree. The pollen is called “Devil’s Breath,” and when a tiny amount is blown into the face of an intended victim, it immediately saps that person’s free will, turning them into a compliance zombie who will do anything they’re commanded to do: Empty their bank account, engage in sexual acts or even donate a kidney.
This isn’t some urban legend, either. The Devil’s Breath pollen is rich in scopolamine, a potent drug that saps free will and turns people into zombies. Scopolamine can “can wipe the memory of its victims,” reports the Daily Mail:
Scopolamine can be blown in the face of a passer-by on the street, and within minutes, that person is under the drug’s effect – scopolamine is odourless and tasteless.
‘You can guide them wherever you want,’ he explained. ‘It’s like they’re a child.’
…The drug, he said, turns people into complete zombies and blocks memories from forming. So even after the drug wears off, victims have no recollection as to what happened. (Shhhhh! Please don’t tell Bill Cosby!)
FDA-approved drug that literally saps human will and turns people into obedient zombies
If all this sounds exactly like what we’re all witnessing in American society today, that’s because drug companies have turned scopolamine into an FDA-approved prescription drug. Continue reading »

– The Complete History of Monsanto, “The World’s Most Evil Corporation” (Global Research, May 20, 2015):
Published by GR in June 2014
Of all the mega-corps running amok, Monsanto has consistently outperformed its rivals, earning the crown as “most evil corporation on Earth!” Not content to simply rest upon its throne of destruction, it remains focused on newer, more scientifically innovative ways to harm the planet and its people.
1901: The company is founded by John Francis Queeny, a member of the Knights of Malta, a thirty year pharmaceutical veteran married to Olga Mendez Monsanto, for which Monsanto Chemical Works is named. The company’s first product is chemical saccharin, sold to Coca-Cola as an artificial sweetener.
Even then, the government knew saccharin was poisonous and sued to stop its manufacture but lost in court, thus opening the Monsanto Pandora’s Box to begin poisoning the world through the soft drink.
1920s: Monsanto expands into industrial chemicals and drugs, becoming the world’s largest maker of aspirin, acetylsalicyclic acid, (toxic of course). This is also the time when things began to go horribly wrong for the planet in a hurry with the introduction of their polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Continue reading »

– FDA refuses to label GMOs despite Americans’ overwhelming support for labeling (Natural News, March 11, 2015):
A powerful, knowledge-suppressing lobby exists in the US, and it has a stranglehold on the decision making of government officials who oversee food safety. This powerful industry alters the nature of food, patents the changes, profits en masse and then uses their monetary influence and control over the food supply to lobby for secrecy of their science.
There is virtually no transparency when it comes to genetically modified foods, for Americans that is. Under the current food secrecy laws, no American has the right to know how their food was made, whether it was grown with antibiotic glyphosate or whether it was genetically spliced with bacteria genes to create crops that produce insecticide. No one knows if the genetic sequence of a crop was rearranged in the lab or whether it’s a naturally occurring crop. Americans eat in the dark, buying food blindly. In this way, Americans have become rats in cages, only allowed to eat the food that is subsidized, catered to them cheaply through the Grocery Manufacturers Association. Continue reading »
– Nearly 4 in 10 clinical trials based on false information; FDA routinely ignores blatant science fraud (Natural News, March 8, 2015):
One of the most important responsibilities of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in protecting public health is to conduct regular inspections of clinical trial sites to ensure that good clinical practices are being followed. But a new study published in the peer-reviewed journal JAMA Internal Medicine has found that nearly half of all clinical trials are based on false information, and the FDA typically does nothing to address this widespread problem.

– NYU Professor Uncovers How the FDA Systematically Covers Up Fraud and Misconduct in Drug Trials (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Feb 17, 2015):
That misconduct happens isn’t shocking. What is: When the FDA finds scientific fraud or misconduct, the agency doesn’t notify the public, the medical establishment, or even the scientific community that the results of a medical experiment are not to be trusted. On the contrary. For more than a decade, the FDA has shown a pattern of burying the details of misconduct. As a result, nobody ever finds out which data is bogus, which experiments are tainted, and which drugs might be on the market under false pretenses. The FDA has repeatedly hidden evidence of scientific fraud not just from the public, but also from its most trusted scientific advisers, even as they were deciding whether or not a new drug should be allowed on the market. Even a congressional panel investigating a case of fraud regarding a dangerous drug couldn’t get forthright answers. For an agency devoted to protecting the public from bogus medical science, the FDA seems to be spending an awful lot of effort protecting the perpetrators of bogus science from the public.
The sworn purpose of the FDA is to protect the public health, to assure us that all the drugs on the market are proven safe and effective by reputable scientific trials. Yet, over and over again, the agency has proven itself willing to keep scientists, doctors, and the public in the dark about incidents when those scientific trials turn out to be less than reputable. It does so not only by passive silence, but by active deception. And despite being called out numerous times over the years for its bad behavior, including from some very pissed-off members of Congress, the agency is stubbornly resistant to change. It’s a sign that the FDA is deeply captured, drawn firmly into the orbit of the pharmaceutical industry that it’s supposed to regulate. We can no longer hope that the situation will get better without firm action from the legislature.
From the Slate article: Are Your Medications Safe?
In the past week or so, I’ve come across several important articles that will leave any rational observer increasingly skeptical of the entire medial industry in the U.S. This isn’t something I say lightly, and I think it’s an absolutely horrific development for our society.
Just last week, Liberty Blitzkrieg published an article titled, Introducing “Physician Dispensing” – The Latest Troubling Medical Industry Scam, which expounded on why an erosion of trust in doctors is so troubling. If you missed that piece, I suggest going back and reading it. Here’s an excerpt: Continue reading »

“…the FDA also reiterated its belief that BPA is safe to use in the lining of canned foods and beverages.”
And yes, the alternatives are NOT safe either …
– BPA alternative disrupts normal brain-cell growth, is tied to hyperactivity, study says (Washington Post, Jan 12, 2015):
In a groundbreaking study, researchers have shown why a chemical once thought to be a safe alternative to bisphenol-A, which was abandoned by manufacturers of baby bottles and sippy cups after a public outcry, might itself be more harmful than BPA.
University of Calgary scientists say they think their research is the first to show that bisphenol-S, an ingredient in many products bearing “BPA-free” labels, causes abnormal growth surges of neurons in an animal embryo.
The same surges were also found with BPA, though not at the same levels as with BPS, prompting the scientists to suggest that all structurally similar compounds now in use or considered for use by plastic manufacturers are unsafe. Continue reading »
– Food products ‘heavily contaminated’ by Fukushima found in US; Over 30,000 pCi/kg of cesium, also had Cobalt-60 and Antimony-124 — FDA: We found no Fukushima contamination in US food supply during routine monitoring (ENENews, Nov 3, 2014):
Dr. Robert Metzger, Radiation Safety Engineering, Inc, American Chemical Society 2013 Meeting (emphasis added): Contamination of food imports to the United States in the early days after the Fukushima accident… Contaminated food imports into the US from Japan were first observed in our laboratory on March 30, 2011, with several products exceeding the FDA Derived Intervention Level (DIL) for Cesium and Iodine…

– FDA actively blocking fast Ebola detection technology in America (Natural News, Oct 19, 2014):
Common sense would lead you to believe that the U.S. government would be doing everything in its power, now that Ebola has reached American shores, to combat the deadly virus. But if you assumed that, you would be mistaken.
Most people don’t know that there is an Ebola screening machine; it is currently available to the U.S military, and the military is using it now. So why aren’t U.S. hospitals using it? Because government guidelines prevent hospitals from doing so.
According to military news site Defense One:
It’s a toaster-sized box called FilmArray, produced by a company called BioFire, a subsidiary of bioMerieux and it’s capable of detecting Ebola with a high degree of confidence — in under an hour. Continue reading »
– 37 lies Americans tell themselves to avoid confronting reality (Natural news, Sep 7, 2014):
Have you noticed the incredible detachment from reality exhibited by the masses these days? The continued operation of modern society, it seems, depends on people making sure they don’t acknowledge reality (or try to deal with it). “Denial” is what keeps every sector of civilization humming along: medicine, finance, government, agriculture and more.
The trouble with the denial approach is that eventually the lies collide with reality. Until that day comes, however, happy-go-lucky Americans are merrily enjoying their courtship with self delusion, repeating the following 37 lies to themselves as if they were true: Continue reading »

– FDA, mainstream media denounce nano silver as ‘bogus cure’ for Ebola virus (Natural News, 17, 2014):
There’s a very interesting showdown taking place right now in the realm of Ebola treatments and cures. At stake is billions of dollars in potential vaccine profits as well as potentially tens of millions of lives of an Ebola pandemic outbreak takes place.
Here’s a summary of what’s happening so far, as best I can tell:
• The world of conventional medicine currently has ZERO proven treatments, vaccines or cures for treating Ebola.
• The recent Ebola media panic resulted in tremendous FDA pressure to authorize Ebola vaccine trials run by a company called Tekmira, whose stock price skyrocketed nearly 100% after the announcement.
• As Ebola news continued to spread, some websites began to claim they had various cures or treatments that could treat or prevent Ebola. For example, this web page claims something called “Monolaurin” is the answer to Ebola.
• The New York Times published an article explaining that the FDA had “issued warnings over Ebola cures.” This article specifically named Dr. Rima Laibow for asserting that nano silver can kill Ebola. Continue reading »

– 70,000 food additives approved by the FDA – What you don’t know will hurt you (Natural News, June 26, 2014):
(NaturalNews) There are over 70,000 food additives approved by the FDA, from artificial ingredients to genetically modified ones, and from “all natural” to GRAS — generally recognized as safe. Cosmetics and personal care products are even worse, with virtually no regulations on chemicals, and your skin absorbs whatever you put on it, and it ends up in the bloodstream, so add that to the 70,000 other food “criminals.”
The phrases “as a preservative” and “to preserve freshness” mean that chemicals are at work in the items to stave off the mold and fungus, in order to extend the product’s shelf life, which also happens to shorten human life. How? These fungus and mold killers eat through the protective protein covering on your cells and cut off their oxygen supply. This is one definition, a preferred method of operation (M.O.) for cancer cells, which multiply uncontrollably and attack weakened tissue. Remove that roadblock, because it’s a very harmful one, as opposed to the way they make it sound in the ingredients list… “preservative.” Continue reading »
More info on Glyphosate (Roundup) down below.
– OCA Calls on US Regulators to Ban Glyphosate over Breast Milk Study (Sustainable Pulse April 20, 2014):
The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) have called on U.S. regulatory agencies, including the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to ban the use of glyphosate based on a new pilot study showing that the toxic herbicide was found in the breast milk of American women. This finding contradicts industry claims that glyphosate does not accumulate in human tissue.
“For years Monsanto has claimed that glyphosate, the key active ingredient in its Roundup-brand herbicide is ‘safe’ because the human body excretes it,” said Ronnie Cummins, national director of the OCA. “This pilot study is the first of its kind to prove that Monsanto is wrong. In fact, this preliminary study shows that glyphosate accumulates in our bodies, and mothers are now passing the toxin on to their infants via breast milk.”
Results of the pilot study, conducted by Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse, with support from Environmental Arts & Research, were released last week. While the numbers are small, they are alarming. The study revealed that the levels found in the breast milk of American women were found to be 760 to 1600 times higher than the European Drinking Water Directive allows for individual pesticides (Glyphosate is both a pesticide and herbicide), but less than the 700 ug/l maximum contaminant level (MCL) for glyphosate in the U.S.
The EPA, arguing that glyphosate is not bio-accumulative, recently raised the limits for the amount of glyphosate residue allowed on human food.

The US Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) announced Thursday the formation of one of the largest ever food and biotech industry coalitions, in a press release that can be seen below. The aim of the Coalition for Safe Affordable Food is to force the US Congress to pass a Federal GMO Labeling Bill, taking away the democratic right of the people of the US to vote for GMO labeling in State votes.
Sustainable Pulse Director, Henry Rowlands, has described the GMA coalition’s attempt to stop US States from deciding for themselves on whether they want GMO labeling as an “open attack on democracy in the US”.

Two of the samples registered at trace levels – Alaskan Keta at 1.4Bq/kg for Cesium 137, and Alaskan Pink at 1.2Bq/kg for Cesium 134 [Cesium-134 is a “clear fingerprint” for Fukushima’s nuclear contamination].
– GMO labeling to be outlawed? Grocery Manufacturers Association unveils deviously evil plan to silence us all (Natural News, Jan 10, 2014)
The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) is scheming to criminalize state-by-state GMO labeling laws in a deviously evil effort to keep consumers ignorant of what they’re eating. Remember, the GMA is the same organization that got caught running an illegal money laundering scheme in Washington state, secretly funneling money from big food manufacturers into a campaign to defeat GMO labeling initiative I-522.Now the GMA is pushing legislation at the federal level to not only outlaw GMO labeling laws at the state level, but also to get the FDA to declare GMOs as “natural” so that foods made with GMOs can claim “all natural” on their labels. A petition filed with the FDA by the GMA states, “GMA will be filing a Citizen Petition early in 2014 that asks the FDA to issue a regulation authorizing foods containing ingredients derived from biotechnology to be labeled ‘natural.'” (SOURCE)
– We Feed Cows Chicken Poop (Mother Jones, Dec 19, 2013):
The practice isn’t just gross, it could spread mad cow disease—and yet the FDA has done nothing to stop it.
Anyone who pays even scant attention to where our food comes from is likely aware that some pretty unsavory things happen between the farm and your fork (see this month’s big story in Rolling Stone, for example). But some of these farming methods are more than just unappetizing: they could be deadly. One practice in particular could allow for the spread of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or BSE, the gruesome and fatal neurodegenerative disorder more commonly known as mad cow disease.
