The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which is quietly starting to test certain foods for residues of a weed killing chemical linked to cancer, has found the residues in a variety of oat products, including plain and flavored oat cereals for babies.
Source: www.huffingtonpost.com By Carey Gillam
Data compiled by an FDA chemist and presented to other chemists at a meeting in Florida showed residues of the pesticide known as glyphosate in several types of infant oat cereal, including banana strawberry- and banana-flavored varieties. Glyphosate was also detected in “cinnamon spice” instant oatmeal; “maple brown sugar” instant oatmeal and “peach and cream” instant oatmeal products, as well as others. In the sample results shared, the levels ranged from nothing detected in several different organic oat products to 1.67 parts per million, according to the presentation. Continue reading »
Those who support the nationwide legalization of marijuana for therapeutic use, were disappointed by the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) recent failure to reclassify marijuana’s status from that of a Schedule I drug to another more appropriate classification.
Since 23 states have now legalized marijuana for medical use, and since numerous studies have confirmed its value as medicine and have proven that it is safe, it seemed the logical next step to begin relaxing the laws at the federal level. Continue reading »
The medicinal value of cannabis cannot be ignored. This healing plant has successfully been used for treatment of pain, insomnia, rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, seizure disorders, and even cancer.
Despite its long history of medicinal use throughout the world, cannabis has remained an illegal, controlled substance in the US, aggressively pursued by government agents for many decades. The US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) gained significant authority over cannabis after the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 was signed into law. Once enacted, the DEA created a scheduling system that classified different substances according to their potential for addiction and abuse. Without any scientific backing, the DEA put cannabis at the top of the list – a schedule one drug with the greatest potential for addiction, with no medicinal value whatsoever. Continue reading »
There are many ways corporations modify food products with chemicals in order to increase sales. They use toxic chemicals to extend shelf life, make food look more attractive, kill bugs in the fields, stave off mold and mildew, kill fungus and bacteria, add flavor back in after chemicals kill the taste, and actually make people depressed and anxious to fuel the chemical medicine industry. Most of it’s nothing new, and has been going on since WWII. GMOs have been in existence for 30 years now, though few people are aware of that.
The cumulative effect of poisons in the body is something you can’t sue one food manufacturer for, or one doctor, or one chemical company. The corporate food industry in America is sinister and insidious. They know they can’t be held accountable for long-term chronic sicknesses from which so many Americans suffer. The FDA could care less about Americans’ health and well-being. Continue reading »
Even though the big revelations about Big Pharma’s science paper research fraud came out years ago, most people are still not aware of this. Here’s the scoop: Drug companies routinely pay P.R. firms to ghostwrite clinical science papers which are published in medical journals and forwarded to the FDA to “prove” the drugs are safe and effective. But it’s all a farce: The papers are pure fiction, dreamed up by what are essentially marketing firms for the sole purpose of getting drugs approved even when they don’t work.
“In 2009, around fourteen thousand women who developed breast cancer while taking Prempro, a hormone replacement therapy (HRT), sued the drug’s manufacturer, Wyeth,” wrote Rupert Sheldrake in an extraordinary book called Science Set Free. Continue reading »
NaturalNews reports; One of the world’s most lucrative industries, spending on cancer drugs reached an all-time high last year, as it was valued at more than $100 billion. Spending on cancer drugs increased 6.5 percent annually over the past five years and is expected to continue growing at a rate of 8 percent each year through 2018, according to figures provided by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics.
That spending is highly concentrated, as the US and five of Europe’s largest countries account for nearly two-thirds of the entire market.
This means that billions and billions of dollars are secured by Americans being diagnosed with cancer. Continue reading »
The former head of the FDA, Margaret Hamburg, used the federal agency to run a massive conspiracy of racketeering and fraud in order to generate millions of dollars in drug company profits for her husband’s hedge fund firm, alleges a damning lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.
The lawsuit alleges that while acting as FDA commissioner, Margaret Hamburg engaged in a wide-ranging conspiracy to approve an extremely dangerous drug known to cause severe (and even deadly) side effects, in order to financially benefit her husband’s hedge fund which held very large financial positions in Johnson & Johnson, makers of the drug. “Defendants, each and every one of them, operated a criminal conspiracy at least between the years 2009 to 2015 to fraudulently suppress warnings about the devastating effects of Levaquin,” says the complaint.

Hemp oil extracts containing CBDs (cannibidiols) are such a threat to the pharmaceutical industry that the FDA is now invoking totally insane justifications for outlawing them.
CBDs are non-psychoactive compounds found naturally in hemp plants. They work so well as powerful natural medicine that people everywhere are realizing CBDs work better than pharmaceuticals for treating epilepsy, seizures, neurological disorders and other serious health conditions (including HIV infections).
So the FDA has just launched a massive regulatory assault against CBDs by invoking the most insane logic you’ve ever heard. Here’s how it goes: Continue reading »
(NATURALSOCIETY) Genetically modified mosquitoes designed to limit the spread of the Zika virus will likely soon be unleashed in the southern United States, as the federal government said today it decided to permit a field test in the Florida Keys.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said it had made a preliminary determination that the GM mosquitoes are unlikely to harm humans, animals, or the environment. Continue reading »
The FDA has now officially been completely captured by the pharmaceutical industry. With the confirmation of pharma insider Robert Califf as the new head of the FDA, America can look forward to many years of FDA malfeasance in conspiracy with pharmaceutical manufacturers to cover up the deadly side effects of drugs like Vioxx, all while using the full power of the federal government to intimidate, censor and criminalize natural product companies.
Federal agents subjected a farmer to harassment and warrantless searches simply for producing raw milk, but a county sheriff took the farmer’s side and blocked federal agents from the property – and the sheriff is now speaking out.
The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and Department of Justice (DOJ) took the actions four years ago simply because the farmer was providing raw milk to an organic food co-op. The story is receiving renewed coverage because the Indiana sheriff, Elkhart County’s Brad Rogers, wrote a 600-word explanation for a local newspaper as part of his “Ask The Sheriff” series. Off The Grid News previously reported on the dispute. Continue reading »
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.”

I wonder why?

– 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 »
“Adverse events reported during post-approval use of Tripedia vaccine include idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, SIDS, anaphylactic reaction, cellulitis, autism, convulsion/grand mal convulsion, encephalopathy, hypotonia, neuropathy, somnolence and apnea. Events were included in this list because of the seriousness or frequency of reporting. Because these events are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequencies or to establish a causal relationship to components of Tripedia vaccine.2″

– 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 »
