Bitter melon can stop cancer cells from growing and spreading:

A popular Asian fruit that looks kind of like a cucumber with warts, bitter melon has a long history of use in traditional cooking, holding a prominent place in both Indian and Chinese cuisine. But recent research out of St. Louis University (SLU) shows that bitter melon serves as a whole lot more than just a tasty gourd, showing viability in the prevention and treatment of cancer.

With the help of a $40,000 grant from the Lottie Caroline Hardy Charitable Trust, researchers from SLU are expanding their investigation into the anti-cancer effects of bitter melon, which has already shown that the fruit can prevent the growth and spread of breast cancer cells. This time around, Dr. Ratna Ray, Ph.D., a longtime advocate of bitter melon for medicinal use, is looking into how the fruit can help prevent prostate and other forms of cancer. Continue reading »

Cistus incanus
The hairy rockrose (Cistus incanus), a native to the Mediterranean tea plant, contains a large quantity of polyphenols. Especially in Greece the cistus-tea has a long tradition, however, has passed into oblivion over the years. In 1999, Cistus Incanus has won the „European Medicinal Plant of the Year“ award and was thus rediscovered. (More info, incl. scientific studies, down below.)

European HIV Infections Hit Record High, CDC Blames “Migrants And Refugees”:

The number of newly diagnosed HIV cases in Europe has hit an all-time high of 142,000, according to The World Health Organization. “Despite all the efforts to fight the disease,” WHO officials note that the rise of the epidemic is primarily attributed to Eastern Europe, where new diagnoses have more than doubled. But it is comments from European Centre for Disease Prevention Control acting director Andrea Ammon that raised a number of witch-huntery eye-brows when she explained migrants and refugees were at a high risk of infection after they arrived in Europe, because social exclusion made them more likely to engage in risky behavior.

“Despite all the efforts to fight HIV, this year the European Region has reached over 142,000 new HIV infections, the highest number ever,” says Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab, WHO Regional Director for Europe. As The Indepedent reports, Continue reading »

AIDS scientist sentenced to prison for vaccine research fraud – Merck fraudsters remain unpunished (Natural News, July 6, 2015): 

A scientist from Iowa State University who admitted to lying about the efficacy of a vaccine he helped develop for the AIDS virus has been sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison, according to new reports. Dong-Pyou Han, 58, recently confessed to altering blood samples to make it seem as though he’d made a huge discovery on the AIDS front, only to be later outed for flagrant scientific fraud.

Besides his prison term, Han will also be forced to pay $7.2 million in fines to the federal government after entering a plea agreement back in February, in which he admitted to two counts of making false statements. Han’s involvement in fraudulent AIDS research began as far back as 2008 when he worked alongside a team at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

When The “Sharing” Economy Goes Too Far: Syphillis Cases Soar 79% In A Year (ZeroHedge, May 30, 2015):

“What’s mine is yours, for a fee,” is the mantra of the new normal “sharing economy,” as various segments of our heretofore under-utilized assets are variously ‘rented’ out for the enjoyment of others. However, as a report by the Rhode Island Department of Health suggests, perhaps we are sharing just a little too much. Sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise in the US, with health officials pointing the finger at casual sex arranged through social media as “the perfect storm.” With gonorrhea up 30%, HIV infections up by 33%, and syphilis soaring a shocking 79% in the last year alone, perhaps they have a point.

The report notes that “new cases of HIV and syphilis continued to increase among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men at a faster rate than in other populations,” adding that “infection rates of all STDs continued to have a greater impact on the African-American, Hispanic, and young adult populations.” As RT reports, Continue reading »

Eustace Mullins (1923-2010), discusses one of his best-selling books; ‘Murder by Injection’ exposing the unholy dynasty of the big drug companies, the medical establishment, the Rockefeller syndicate and the evils of the cut-slash-and-burn cancer racket that has killed millions in the name of ‘fighting cancer.’

While there are many books on the corruption of modern medicine, there is no other book out there that so effectively tells the whole story as does this seminal volume, laying bare the criminal machinations of those who profit in the name of “promoting good health.” The federal bureaucracy that ostensibly “regulates” the big drug companies is all part and parcel of the problem.

Origins of HIV pandemic found in ‘perfect storm’ of 1920s Congo (Al Jazeera/Reuters, Oct 3, 2014):

Scientists say rail network, migrant workers and flourishing sex trade in early 20th century Kinshasa bolstered spread

Scientists have traced the origins of the HIV pandemic to early 20th-century Congo, where bustling transport networks, migrant labor and changes to the sex trade created a “perfect storm” that gave rise to the virus that would eventually infect 75 million people worldwide, researchers have said.

In an analysis of the genetic history of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that causes AIDS, scientists said the global pandemic almost certainly began its global spread in the 1920s in the city of Kinshasa in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), then known as Zaire. Continue reading »

USAID

U.S. Government Caught Using Humanitarian HIV Program as a Front to Foster Cuban Dissent (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Aug 4, 2014):

Regular readers of Liberty Blitzkrieg will recall that earlier this year I highlighted how the U.S. government covertly created a “Cuban Twitter” called ZunZuneo in a failed attempt to overthrow the island nation’s regime. The elaborate plot was implemented under the umbrella of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), which is responsible for overseeing billions of dollars in U.S. humanitarian aid. If you need a refresher, check out the post: Conspiracy Fact – How the U.S. Government Covertly Invented a “Cuban Twitter” to Create Revolution.

Well we now know that USAID went a lot further than that. Another scheme to unseat the Cuban government has now been revealed. This time with even more immoral foundations, and which could disrupt genuine humanitarian relief efforts the world over.

Incredibly, the U.S. government used an HIV program as a front to foster dissent amongst Cuba’s youth. The HIV-prevention workshop was even referred to as the “perfect excuse to recruit political activists.” Despicable.

Vaccine researcher charged with felony crimes for research fraud; may spend 20 years in prison over faked AIDS vaccine (Natural News, June 25, 2014):

Scientific fraud is so common in the vaccine industry, it’s practically the default business model. The truth is that most vaccines don’t work, so in order to make them appear to work, researchers routinely spike blood samples of vaccinated test subjects with antibodies, making it appear the vaccine caused the body to produce those antibodies.

This is exactly what Merck does with MMR vaccines, according to the company’s own former virologists who filed a False Claims Act with the federal government. It’s also why up to 97% of children who contract measles or mumps were already vaccinated against measles and mumps.

Now, a National Institutes of Health-funded vaccine scientist who was celebrated as achieving a breakthrough vaccine against HIV has confessed to spiking the test subject blood samples with antibodies. Dong-Pyou Han had taken $5 million in NIH grant money to further his “research” at Iowa State University. The mainstream media and vaccine advocates hailed his research as groundbreaking, “game-changing” advancements in the search for an AIDS vaccine. Continue reading »

Half Of New Greek HIV Cases Are Self-Inflicted To Receive €700 Per Month Benefits, Study Finds (ZeroHedge, Nov 25, 2013):

When one reads the following stunning, and tragic, excerpt from the World Health Organization’s recent report “Review of social determinants and the health divide in the WHO European Region: final report” what can one say but… Grecovery.

From the WHO:

Case study: countries’ experiences of financial crisis – Greece

Suicides rose by 17% between 2007 and 2009 and to 25% in 2010, according to unofficial 2010 data (398). The Minister of Health reported a further 40% rise in the first half of 2011 compared with the same period in 2010. Suicide attempts have also increased, particularly among people reporting economic distress (610). Homicide and theft rates have doubled. HIV rates and heroin use have risen significantly, with about half of new HIV infections being self-inflicted to enable people to receive benefits of €700 per month and faster admission on to drug-substitution programmes. Prostitution has also risen, probably as a response to economic hardship. Health care access has declined as hospital budgets have been cut by about 40% (398) and it is estimated that 26 000 public health workers (9100 doctors) will lose their jobs (611). Further cuts are expected as a result of recent negotiations with the IMF and European Central Bank.

Western medicine looking for a PROFITABLE cure, using human beings a GUINEA PIGS.

Nature has many cures for leukemia. Here is one of them:

Study: Grape Seed Extract Kills 76% Of Leukemia Cancer Cells In 24 Hours

Study: Grape Seed Extract Kills Head And Neck Cancer Cells, Leaves Healthy Cells Unharmed

But the cure is not profitable and therefor worthless in the eyes of Big Pharma and its western medicine circus.

There are so many cures for cancer out there. Basically you only have to change your diet and any cancer starts to heal within two weeks as the body is getting more alkaline because the body is getting healthy food.

I have posted many articles and videos on how to heal cancer.


Doctors ‘cure’ leukemia by using HIV to rewire immune system (RT, Dec 10, 2012):

Doctors have successfully used a disabled version of HIV to modify a 7-year-old leukemia patient’s white blood cells to attack her cancer. The breakthrough procedure could potentially replace bone marrow transplant as a leukemia treatment.

Emma Whitehead was selected as a patient for the experimental technique after two years of battling with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the New York Times reported. Chemotherapy failed to either cure the disease or result in a period of remission long enough for a bone marrow transplant.

The process was previously tested only on adult patients. In April, Whitehead became the first child to undergo the treatment, her medical team revealed during an annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology in Atlanta last weekend. She was also the first patient to be treated for her kind of leukemia.

Doctors from the University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia manipulated Whitehead’s immune system to make it target cancer cells. They took a batch of her own T cells – a kind of white blood cell – and genetically engineered them to kill the B cells – another kind of white blood cell – responsible for her disease.

­To do this, the doctors used a modified and disabled form of HIV, the virus responsible for AIDS, to alter the T cells’ genes, making them produce a protein called a chimeric antigen receptor on their surface. This artificial protein matches another protein encountered only on the surface of B cells. The alteration allows T cells to attach to B cells, and destroy them. The genetically engineered T cells were then injected back into Whitehead’s blood, where they could reproduce on their own.

Delusional reality: Everything peddled by politicians, media, banks and television is a fiction (Natural News, Sep 6, 2012):

The “War on Terror” is a complete fabrication. There is no terrorism other than what the government creates in order to sell its agenda of a police state takeover. Click here to read Paul Craig Roberts’ article that lays this out in brilliant detail.

The CDC’s war on West Nile virus is also a complete fabrication. There is no real West Nile virus threat. (Read article here.) The odds of being killed by West Nile are, much like with “terrorism,” even lower than the odds of being killed by a bee sting.

The “economic recovery” of America is a fairy tale. Over the last few days, the federal debt reached a jaw-dropping $16 trillion — nearly $5 trillion of that debt has been incurred under one person: President Obama. Unemployment is at record highs. Half the population is on federal aid of one form or another. Food stamp costs have skyrocketed.

“Obamacare” is a fiasco. Dubbed the “Affordable Care Act,” in reality health insurance costs have vastly increased after the passage of this ill-conceived law.

Bin Laden wasn’t killed by U.S. Navy Seals. The war is a fake. The news is faked. The media is completely, utterly faked, running totally fictional stories. CNN is actually an elaborate theater operation, faking sets, locations, sound effects and everything else you can imagine. Don’t believe me?

–  Bayer Knowingly Sold AIDS-Infected Drugs Worldwide For Decades (MSNBC)

Vaccines and Medical Experiments on Children, Minorities, Woman and Inmates (1845 – 2007)



YouTube

In this interview Dr. Maurice Hilleman reveals some astounding revelations. He admits that Merck drug company vaccines (Polio) had been deliberately contaminated with SV40, a cancer-causing monkey virus from 1953 – 63.

For years, researchers suggested that millions of vials of polio vaccine, contaminated with SV40, infected individuals which caused human tumors, and by 1999, molecular evidence of SV40 infections were showing up in children born after 1982. Some experts now suggest the virus may have remained in the polio vaccine until as late as 1999.

In 2002, the journal Lancet published compelling evidence that contaminated polio vaccine was responsible for up to half of the 55,000 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cases that were occurring each year. And there is the likelihood that there was an importing and spreading of the AIDS virus in the same manner, as revealed in the video.

At first no one could fathom how the virus had been transmitted into the human population, but this shocking video proves that it was deliberately added to the vaccine by Dr. Maurice Hilleman, which was “good science” at that time.

Just Who is Dr. Maurice Hilleman?

Now, for those of you who may think Dr. Hilleman was just another crackpot (he passed away in 2005), think again. He was, and still is, the leading vaccine pioneer in the history of vaccines. He developed more than three dozen vaccines—more than any other scientist in history—and was the developer of Merck’s vaccine program.

He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society, and received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization.

This shocking interview was CENSORED.

The world’s leading authority on vaccines admitted that the HIV virus was introduced to humans through the creation of vaccines using HIV-infected monkeys from Africa.

Dr. Maurice Hilleman also acknowledged that the SV40 virus, which causes cancer, is contained in vaccines.

Some researchers believe this is responsible for the dramatic rise in cancer.

(Drug companies claim that the SV40 virus has been removed, but there are sources who say otherwise.)

While Dr. Hilleman was the senior vaccine scientist at Merck, he personally discovered the presence of the cancer-causing virus in Merck’s vaccines, as well as the HIV virus in monkeys, however the company knowingly injected millions of people with both.

Dr. Hilleman has since died, but his testimony lives on in this interview.

Many people have heard that HIV came from monkeys in Africa, but they don’t know how.

Some vaccines are grown on monkey kidneys. As you’ll hear in this video, when it was discovered that the African green monkeys were contaminated with the (as yet unknown) HIV virus, their kidneys were used to make vaccines anyhow, despite believing that the virus would be harmful.

As a result, millions of people worldwide have now been given the HIV virus through vaccines.

Bayer AG admits GMO contamination out of control

–  Vaccines and Medical Experiments on Children, Minorities, Woman and Inmates (1845 – 2007)




Bayer Sells AIDS-Infected Drug Banned in U.S. in Europe, Asia – Unearthed documents show that the drug company Bayer sold millions of dollars worth of an injectable blood-clotting medicine — Factor VIII concentrate, intended for hemophiliacs — to Asian, Latin American, and some European countries in the mid-1980s, although they knew that it was tainted with AIDS.

Bayer knew about the fact that the drug was tainted and told the FDA to keep things under wraps while they made a profit off of a drug that infected its patients. If these allegations are true, then both Bayer and the FDA are at fault for this catastrophe.

FDA regulators helped to keep the continued sales hidden, asking the company that the problem be ”quietly solved without alerting the Congress, the medical community and the public,” according to the minutes of a 1985 meeting.

China is depriving poor countries of badly-needed cash to fight Aids, malaria and tuberculosis by exploiting a loophole to drain an aid fund, a former official has complained.

The global fund was set up for rich countries to pool their donations in the fight against three of the world’s deadliest diseases Photo: ALAMY

Despite its $2.4 trillion of foreign reserves, China is the fourth-largest recipient of aid money, worth $1 billion (£640 million), from the Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria, behind Ethiopia, India and Tanzania.

The fund was set up eight years ago for rich countries to pool their donations in the fight against three of the world’s deadliest diseases. “We imagined the bulk of the money ending up in places like Lesotho, Haiti and Uganda, where these three diseases have reached crisis levels,” said Jack Chow, the lead US negotiator in the founding of the fund, to Foreign Policy magazine.

Instead, he said, China had systematically exploited the set-up of the fund in order to win more aid grants than 29 African countries. “China has aggressively pursued Global Fund grants and has continued to win significant amounts with every passing year,” he said, adding: “Any grants that China wins reduce the remaining money available for all eligible countries.”

Despite recently becoming the world’s second-largest economy, and announcing more than $125 billion in new health spending for the countryside last year, China still receives three times as much to fight Aids and malaria than South Africa, one of the worst-afflicted countries.

“China has won malaria grant money totalling $149 million in a country where only 38 deaths from the illness were reported last year,” said Mr Chow. “That is more money than the Democratic Republic of Congo, which reported nearly 25,000 malaria deaths in the same period.” Continue reading »
