Will Nestle Patent Air Next

A few days ago Little Nicky brought you news of the Nestle CEO who thinks access to water is not a human right and his company along with other fascist corporations should be able to own water sources and stiop us ordinary punter using them. Nestle are not the only multi national engaged in this kind of corporate fascism. Monsanto have of course been trying to gain control of the worlds staple food supplies for years and now have the support of The Coalition, The Labour Party, The Euronazis in Brusssels and the Uchuffingnited Nations.

Now we learn that not content with trying to own the water and control the seed stock, the corporate fascists are trying to patent nature itself. Nestle (again) are trying to take out a patent on a natural remedy that is a favourite of herbalists and an important medicine in poor areas, the fennel flower.

Again we provide you with a link to a site that lists Nestle brands so you may learn what you might want to boycott.

The Arrogance Of Corporate Power, The Compliance Of Science

Throughout my lifetime Antibiotics have been on of humanity’s beast weapons against some (but NOT all of the most deadly diseases: Penicillin is one of or possibly the most prescribed drugs.

But it was folly to start prescribing penicillin as a placebo and even greater folly to introduce it into the food chain by dosing animal feeds with it to they would produce more meat for human consumption more quickly. The growing resistance of disease to antibiotics has been described as a ticking time bomb by the UK Chief Medical; Officer and the United States Centre For Disease Control.

Given the amount of time the science industry spends railing against creationism and blethering about evolution one would think they’d understand those bacteria that managed to survive an encounter with an antibiotic would pass on their genes. Isn’t that how natural selection works?

Science was ever fascism’s whore of course and whatever corporate money asks for, corporate money gets and to hell with evolution, after all it’s only a theory isn’t it? Well so it would seem when big money finds the facts of natural selection inconvenient.

A growing body of evidence shows how harmful over – prescription, use as a placebo and the practice of using antibiotics as a feed additive can be. These thinks have been known for years but the corporate fascists of Big Pharma and their academic poodles resolutely deny there is a problem and routinely dismiss any evidence that does not fit their agenda as ‘unscientific’ then subject the researchers to something resembling a medieval with hunt (this is called ‘the scientific method’).

Taking routine course of antibiotics and consuming them in our food has been leading to serious and dangerous side effects, which greatly affect everybody’s health and well being. Many responsible doctors and researchers warned that they were seeing more and more penicillin resistant bacteria as new strains evolved. Not long ago it was announced that a new variety of gonorrhea bacterium that was resistant to antibiotics had been identified among people attending STI clinics.

Little Nicky Machiavelli has reported on concerns in more general medicine that evidence that proves how harmful this practice can be has been available for a while now. Taking routine course of antibiotics and moreover pouring them into our food has been leading to serious and dangerous side effects, which greatly affect everybody’s health and well being. There are instances when antibiotics can save lives, so they have their place. But switching from specific, well determined and occasional use to a broad use and even worse, to a ”preventive” measure, in humans and animals, is totally insane and looks like extermination.diseases reduced to minor infections by antibiotic drugs could become major killers again

There are still many instances in which antibiotics can save many lives, so they have their place. But switching from targeted and occasional use to a broad user and ”preventive” measures in humans and a profit booster for Big Agri in animals, is totally insane and is starting to look item in a genocidist agenda.

Below you have strong evidence which confirms my statements:
Antibiotics As Prescription Drugs

Thanks to fear and panic generated by government ./ corporate propaganda (remember Swine Flu, Bird Flu, HIV/AIDS, SARS and the various superbugs we have been warned on people became so fearful these days whenever they have a sniffle or infection. They all want it to go away, right away, at any cost! Immediate relief for a life of damaged health.

But common infections do not need antibiotics Our body simply doesn’t work like that. And overuse does more harm than good.

Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride describes it thus:

“The whole length of our digestive tract is coated with a bacterial layer providing a natural barrier against invaders, undigested food, toxins and parasites. If this “coating” (mucosal barrier) gets damaged, well … you get the picture! These beneficial bacteria protecting the gut wall also work against invasive pathogenic micro-organisms by producing antibiotic-like substances, anti-fungal volatiles, anti-viral substances. They engage the immune system to respond appropriately to invaders. Our healthy indigenous flora has a good ability to neutralise toxic substances from our food and environment, inactivate histamine and chelate heavy metals and other poisons. Again, this is all possible IF the “barrier” is intact…Without a well functioning gut flora, the gut wall not only becomes unprotected, but also malnourished.

Antibiotics destroy beneficial bacteria in the human body, not only in the gut but in other organs and tissues they change bacteria, viruses and fungi from benign to pathogenic, giving them an ability to invade tissues and cause disease they make bacteria resistant to antibiotics, so the industry has to work on more and more powerful new antibiotics to attack these new changed bacteria. A good example is tuberculosis, where wide use of antibiotics has created new varieties of the Mycobacterium Tuberculosis resistant to all existing antibiotics
They also have a direct damaging effect on the immune system, making us more vulnerable to infections, which leads to a vicious cycle of more antibiotics and more infections

Since babies are born with a sterile gut flora, the mother esentially “downloads” her gut health / flora into the baby through breastfeeding. No wonder why digestive problems are usually shown to get worse with each generation, considering the mother’s poor gut health and bottle feeding.

The variety of functions and the essential role of an intact mucosal barrier, a healthy gut flora, make this the root of our health. We simply can not thrive without a healthy digestive system.”

What is the clinical reality these days? A vast majority of people have a damaged gut flora and a major culprit to this is: ANTIBIOTICS!

Cancer Schmancer

After my recent bust ups with medical scientists I’m only too happy to link to an article at Huffington Post – Cancer Schmancer, one woman’s story of how she has formed a support group to help women who have been failed by the incompetence and laziness of “medical scientists” (or doctors to you and me) and make them learn that people are all different, inconveniently, irritatingly, unscientifically different.

Just because there is no “scientific” evidence that some people are better equipped to fight cancer than others, it is not acceptable to ignore the empirical evidence to say it is not so.

If you recall the original controversy was started by my suggesting the medical establishment were afraid to have an open debate on the MMR / Autism issue, you might like to take a look at this post from Ginger Taylor, an American mother of an autistic child. She shares many of my concerns about the basic honesty of the healthcare industry. And she finds their assurances that lay people like us cannot understand because we are “not scientists” utterly unconvincing as well.

A Bad Weekend For Medical Science

Funny how just as I was thinking Machiavelli was in for a few quiet weeks during the silly season for news, Big Pharma and the medical care industry show their intention of keeping the old pot boiling right through to the day Gordon Brown calls the General election (October 24 – the announcement, not the election, is being hotly tipped.

And then in the course of five days we hear of four reasons to mistrust the medical industry.

First was the announcement of loony plans to put all men over fifty on cholesterol lowering drugs whether they have raised cholesterol levels or not. (Cue a raiding party of boy – scientists from Ben Goldacre’s Bad Science Forum to come storming in yelling that I am not a “scientist” and do not understand the science. Oh I just love winding them up.

Now I do not claim to have any understanding of cholesterol related problems in men over fifty, my LDL (low density lipoprotein or naughty cholesterol) is lower than average I’m told, while my HDL (high density lipoprotein level is healthy. So, having enough side effects from medication I do need, I do not want any more from medication I don’t need.

We do not need a medical qualification to understand that cholesterol is a vital component of human cells so to lower levels in people who don’t need their levels lowered might just cause more problems than it solves. But while that would be bad for us it would be good for Big Pharma, creating a vast new market for drugs to reverse the effects of the unneeded drugs we had already taken. And it would not be bad news for the senior doctors. More work for their teams would mean bigger budgets and bigger salaries.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. You don’t need to be a brain surgeon to understand that, just capable of using common sense. But of course cholesterol is not the first problem that medical science has proposed wholesale medication for. Not so long ago someone was talking about threating the drinking water with anti – depressants.

Next out of the loony laboratory was the news that the until recently acclaimed diabetes drugs Avandia and Actos have been linked to increased risk of heart failure. Researchers say that as many as one in fifty patients put on these drugs have been hospitalised for heart failure in the 26 months since the study of side effects was launched.

Call Little Nicky old fashioned if you like possums, but I thought the point of medicine was to make people better not iller.

Third comes the news that Pharmaceutical companies and the medical establishment are refusing to sanction clinical trials of a drug which is widely used in the U.S.A. and other places to treat deterioration of eyesight in the elderly.

Over 20,000 people per year suffer some loss of vision due to macular degeneration. The drug Lucentis can halt deterioration and improve vision but is priced at around £750 per shot, way beyond the budgets of most NHS Doctors. Which is tough, or would be if a cheap alternative was not available. That alternative, already widely used elsewhere, is a drug called Avastin which was developed to treat bowel cancer. Avastin, in eye sized doses, would cost around £10 per shot. Very affordable, yet NHS Doctors cannot prescribe it because nobody will fund the clinical trials that must be done before the drug is licensed for such use in the UK.

Lastly comes news that Ritalin, widely prescribed for children affected by ADHD but suspected of having serious side effects including, allegedly, death in a few cases is about to become news again. Ritalin has been suspect for a long time, but as with the Autism / MMR issue, Medics have dismissed concerns as “associative fallacy” and said cases of serios illness are just coincidence. But isn’t that what they said about the dibetes drug / heart failure connection (I know it is because my friend who put me up to using Machiavelli to voice the concerns of who can’t reveal their names, is a diabeytes specialist) It’s also what they said about the alleged Autism / MMR link, AND the harmful effects of seroxat, AND the addictive nature of many prescription painkillers.

So we can expect that one to run and run.

Now some people may get the idea I have a grudge against the medical professions. That is not so, I owe the fact I am around to write this to the fine work of an ITU team and the patience and commitment of a rehab team. I just wish that those professionals were not constantly hampered by the incompetence, self – interest or sheer stupidity of the Pharmaceutical industry and the Medical establishment.

And I also wish the boy scientists of Bad Science Forum would shout the fuck up and leave serious issues to experienced political campaigners. Their Mickey Mouse degrees from Portakabin University do not make up for a painful lack of life experience. Which is of course the essential qualification for a career in medicine. (That BTW is a taunt aimed at goading them into steaming in with comments on what they think I have written rather than what I have written rather than things I actually said, thus adding a lot of content to Machiavelli and pushing my blog up to the top of the search engine listings.)
It is a lack of life experience that makes them argue about the quality of the scientific methods used in these study’s. Had they adequate life experience of course, they would understand that it is not the egos of “scientists that matter but the wellbeing of patients undergoing therapy.
Let’s see if that gang of arrested adolescents fall for my rather entry level Machiavellian ploy a THIRD time :DD

JUST A WORD for regular readers. After a post recenntly that attracted far more comments than usual I said there seemed to be a orchestrated attempt to shout me down. As I expected someone involved in the attack responded that all the adverse comments came from the Bad Science Forum after the forum leader had linked my site but it was not an orchestrated attack (see what I mean about thick?) and I was a conspiracy theorist. Well you know Little Nicky’s attitude to orchestrated attacks. Bring ’em on 😛
