One-Third of All Prescription Drugs Still Contain Toxic Ingredient Despite Black Box Warnings

One third of all the drugs that doctors write prescriptions for in treating common maladies, especially infections of any kind where antibiotics are so routinely prescribed, contain a toxic ingredient that has unusual and debilitating side effects. A 2013 lawsuit prompted the FDA to issue black box warnings, but physicians are still prescribing these deadly drugs.

Two compounds will be mentioned often in this report: fluoroquinolone and quinolone. Fluoroquinolone is a quinolone antibiotic with an added fluoride atom.

Fluorine or fluoride boosted well beyond limits allowed for fluoridating tap water is also fairly common in anti-depressants, anti-anxiety drugs, anti-inflammatory steroids, and even anesthetic drugs used to put patients under during surgical procedures. This article will explain why you should do your best to avoid them. Some estimate that 33 percent of pharmaceutical drugs contain fluorine.

The drug companies’ lab people consider fluorine to be a sort of selective solvent to penetrate tissue and get to whatever the drug is purportedly aiming at. But it is toxic and also penetrates the blood brain barrier while hindering the thyroid gland’s activity by replacing that gland’s main nutrient for energy, iodine.

Some have even attributed fluoridated water to the rise in cancer rates while others mention its negative neurological impact since it can easily seep into the pineal gland located in the brain.

Most Pharmaceutical Antibiotics Create Other Health Problems, Some Very Dangerous

Even without the fluorine atom(s), prior quinolone antibiotics were racking up considerable adverse reaction histories. Some had to be actually removed from the market. What is common to both quinolone and fluoroquinolone antibiotics is that they are completely synthetic and bactericidal.

Pharmaceutical bactericidal antibiotics rely on directly killing pathogenic bacteria, but they don’t discriminate between the pathogenic bacteria and the helpful bacteria in our gut. Those helpful bacteria not only promote digestion, but also constitute a considerable portion of our immune systems, 60 to 80 percent by some estimates.

Synthetic pharmaceutical antibiotics used often are beginning to fail as intended because pathogenic bacteria are able to develop immunity to them. Most natural antibiotics such as colloidal silver, garlic, Mediterranean oregano, and others have not been figured out by those same clever pathogens. Then there is also high dose vitamin C that does wonders for infectious diseases regardless of its source.

Here’s a short list of fluoroquinolone antibiotics that have caused considerable damage to those patients who were prescribed. The brand names are in parenthesis. Notice the suffix “floxacin” in the chemical names. Those victimized by any of the antibiotics listed use the term “floxed” to describe their condition, as in “I too have been floxed and my conditions include … .”

  • Ciprofloxacin (Cipro)
  • Levofloxacin (Levaquin)
  • Gemifloxacin (Factive)
  • Moxifloxacin (Avelox)
  • Norfloxacin (Noroxin)
  • Ofloxacin (Floxin)

Here is a more extensive list of fluoroquinolone drugs

Those conditions from being floxed are many, often with several occurring simultaneously or separately over time. Symptoms include: Chronic fatigue; torn tendons; paralysis; depression; seizures; excruciating chronic joint pain; neurological damage; painful neuropathy; impaired thinking; insomnia; paranoia and suicidal thoughts that lead to suicides.

All or some or one of these “side effects” can occur from one doctor’s prescription. Usually the doctors who prescribed them deny their patients’ association with the fluoroquinolone antibiotic to their condition. Some are “floxed” immediately after a couple of pills and others get fully floxed some time after using fluoroquinolone antibiotics.

A 2015 San Diego TV station investigation on fluoroquinolone antibiotics obtained an FDA database of adverse effects and “… found 3,000 deaths and 200,000 complaints of serious effects associated with Levaquin and similar drugs [fluoroquinolone antibiotics].” During the 1960s, quinolone antibiotics were developed and marketed. Circa 1980 the era of fluoroquinolones began.

Think of that, 3000 deaths and 2000,000 serious side effects, such as becoming disabled and in chronic pain or chronically seriously ill with multiple symptoms, as the tip of a deeper iceberg, an iceberg that includes who knows how many unreported adverse effects. All that for attempting to treat the sniffles or sore throat. These are only the reported cases.

The actual cases exceed these numbers because many adverse fluoroquinolone adverse events are not reported to the FDA or CDC. Not everyone who is adversely affected knows about sending a report to the CDC or FDA. It’s likely most flouroquinilone prescribing physicians are very rarely reporting their patients’ woes as well.

The prescribing physician usually dismisses the patient’s complaints and attributes them to diagnosing another treatable ailment. So the known reports don’t reflect the enormity of adverse consequences.

Thanks to a medical system that refuses to take responsibility for fluorquinolone damages. Floxed victims are forced into coping on their own with forum sites and Facebook pages devoted to them for information and camaraderie. Here’s one.

At least there have been mounting lawsuits against drug companies’ fluoroquinolone products, especially Leviquin and Cipro, the most commonly prescribed.

The Basic Damage Causing Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Syndrome

A 2013 study discovered the underlying mechanics of cellular deterioration throughout all organs, connecting tissues such as tendons, and central and peripheral nervous systems. This is why so many confusing symptoms and serious health problems are manifest among the floxed.

These antibiotics are able to penetrate into cells with damaging results. The heart of cellular energy and starting point of our biological life is located in our cells’ mitochondria, where adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is metabolically manufactured. ATP is often referred to as the “molecular unit of currency” for intracellular energy transfer.

All cells contain mitochondria, thus destroying or impairing their ability to create ATP results in rapid health deterioration. ATP is simply the carrier and regulation-storage unit of energy within the average  human body’s one hundred trillion human cells. At any instant each cell contains about one billion ATP molecules.

This extraordinary amount is sufficient for that cell’s needs for only a few minutes and must be rapidly recycled. From the 2013 study “Bactericidal Antibiotics Induce Mitochondrial Dysfunction and Oxidative Damage in Mammalian Cells”:

These data [from their study] demonstrate that bactericidal, but not bacterio-static, antibiotics impair the function of mitochondria and, consequently, the overall respiratory capacity of the cell. (Source)

By the way, all quinolones and fluoroquinolone antibiotics are bactericidal. Bacterio-static antibiotics, usually sulfa drugs, do not aggressively seek and kill pathogenic bacteria. They contain bacteria by removing their sources of nutrition and leaving them to hopefully die off.

After a 2013 lawsuit successfully demanded the FDA issue a black box warning on all fluoroquinolone antibiotics, enough physicians have been continuing to prescribe them for minor infections. Who reads black box warnings? Obviously not every client, patient, or administering physician.

This black box warning does somewhat serve the pharmaceutical companies more than uninformed patients. The list of horrendous side effects are listed on it. Those who are floxed after 2013 will not have as much ammunition for suing the manufacturer.

The latest warnings from the FDA in 2016 advise that fluoroquinolone antibiotics should not be prescribed for minor infections, according to Consumer Reports. It’s this reporter’s opinion that they should be avoided completely.

Natural Antidotes for Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics

Here’s what needs to be avoided upon recognizing early signs of fluoroquinolone toxicity beyond any ailment for which it was prescribed: Fluoridated water, ibuprofen, and any other over the counter pain killers that contain acetaminophen.

These and other NSAID drugs are usually recommended along with the antibiotics. Also avoid steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and anti-depressants. Many of them are fluoridated.

The study referenced in the previous section mentioned N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC), a very accessible amino-acid supplement, as an item that helped prevent or reverse mitochondrial damage from the bactericidal antibiotics.

Others have suggested high intakes of magnesium and calcium as soon as possible since those minerals bind with quinolones to create chelations that nullify the toxicity and help remove them from the body via normal elimination processes.

However, repairing the damage done is another story. A complete e-book on detoxifying and reversing damages after being floxed is available here.

Gulf War Syndrome: Documents Prove UK and US Military Personnel were Injected with Untested Vaccines

Dr. Garth L. Nicolson, the President, Chief Scientific Officer and Research Professor of Molecular Pathology at the Institute for Molecular Medicine in Huntington Beach, California, lecturing on the connection between military vaccines and Gulf War Syndrome. Image source.

Health Impact News

In 1990, the recruitment of soldiers commenced for preparation to fight against Iraq in the Gulf War. On January 4, 1991, mass vaccination programs began, supposedly to protect the soldiers against the chemical warfare with which they may or may not come into contact.

The soldiers reported being vaccinated with several vaccinations. In a witness statement, Mr. Richard Turnbull told the court that he had received the following vaccinations and a few that he could not remember:

  • Anthrax
  • Bubonic Plague
  • Cholera
  • Typhoid
  • Yellow Fever
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Meningitis

We know that this list of vaccines should have also included the now discontinued MMR vaccination, Pluserix and the pertussis vaccination.

This is because the original supply agreement between the UK government and SmithKline & French shows that SmithKline & French agreed to distribute 1,400,000 Pluserix vaccinations (Urabe MMR) to the UK for use on the UKs babies and the armed forces.

The agreement, which was signed in August 1988, stated:

This Agreement’s designated contract reference is N1D0288.

SK&F have agreed to supply and NHS have agreed to purchase for onward sale to United Kingdom Health Authorities and the Armed Forces 1,400,000 doses of “Pluserix” (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine at a cost of 3.80 per dose (exclusive of value added tax) to NHS of as NHS shall require to facilitate the United Kingdom Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccination campaign which commences on 3rd October 1988. The supply of vaccine shall be upon the terms of this agreement.

“…the original supply agreement between the UK government and SmithKline & French shows that SmithKline & French agreed to distribute 1,400,000 Pluserix vaccinations (Urabe MMR) to the UK for use on the UK’s babies and the armed forces.”

Many vaccinations given to the soldiers were both untested and unlicensed. According to research, the UK government felt the necessity to vaccinate their armed forces with vaccinations that were untested and, therefore, potentially unsafe. See: Proof Armed Forces are Given Untested and Experimental Vaccines.

When Iraq invaded Kuwait in August 1990, a coalition was initially formed to prevent further Iraqi aggression and subsequently liberate Kuwait itself.

From the outset, it was known that the Iraqi regime had been seeking to acquire weapons of mass destruction. The large number of casualties resulting from Iraq’s use of chemical weapons during the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s, and the attack on Halabja in Northern Iraq in March 1988, showed that Iraq possessed a chemical warfare (CW) capability and that Saddam Hussein was prepared to use it–both in battle and also against large centers of civilian population.

The military vaccination program was one of the defense systems that was put in place to protect the UK (and other) troops from both the threat of chemical warfare agents and the weapons of mass destruction that Saddam Hussein was supposed to have and would likely use against them in the First Gulf War. See: Reports and Memoranda- Background to the use of Medical Countermeasures to protect British forces during the Gulf War (Operation Granby).

As it turned out, the vaccines that were given to these men and women were probably as dangerous as the chemical warfare would have been, and many of the men and women have since reported lasting effects from the chemicals and toxins with which they were vaccinated.

When you read the harrowing stories of what these brave men and women went through, and what they were given to “protect” them from chemical warfare, the true enormity of what these governments have forced their troops to take and the massive impact this must have had on their bodies becomes evident.

One veteran, Mr. Richard Turnbull, reported in his witness statement for an Independent Public Inquiry into Gulf War Illness in 2004 that the vaccinations were not given as single injections but in vials that contained two or three vaccinations at a time.

Mr. Turnbull said:

I am 52 years old. I served in the Royal Air Force for 18 [sic] where I served at RSAF Dharan in the job of NBC COLPRO, collective protection shelter erection. On 4 January 1991 everyone in the camp at Dharan was ordered to attend for inoculations with the stipulation that non-attendance would be met with disciplinary action.

When we attended the next morning for these inoculations, we were given no information at all about what we were receiving. We were given no chance to ask about possible side effects to the massive number of injections they were planning to give us.

Were “young men and women who had offered their lives to serve their country” being mass vaccinated by their governments with vaccines previously untested on human beings?

As mentioned, many of the vaccines given to the innocent young men and women at the time were either unlicensed or untested products. One paper, written in August 1990 by the Ministry of Defence, stated how soldiers should receive the anthrax vaccination:

Point 2

The efficiency of the vaccine can be enhanced by the simultaneous administration of a licensed whooping cough vaccine or an unlicensed adjuvant subject to availability of these items. There is animal evidence that protection is not only enhanced but extended by these combinations to include the so-called “Vaccine resistant strains.”

The wording of this paper suggests that the soldiers were being given vaccinations that were previously untested on humans.

According to point 5b:

Additional doses would require vaccine production to be rescheduled. A run of experimental Whooping Cough Vaccine would have to be postponed with the approval of the DoH (Department of Health).

Point 5d stated:

To speed up this process License Variation or even Crown Privilege would need to be sought.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) paper makes extremely disturbing reading and yet these practices were being used on young men and women who had offered their lives to serve their country.

On July 12, 2004, Mr. Shaun Rusling, Vice Chairman of the National Gulf Veterans and Families Association, stated:

I was given routine vaccinations–hepatitis B, hepatitis A, polio, yellow fever, tetanus, meningococcal C … I was given further hepatitis B and cholera vaccinations and three other vaccinations, which I was advised, were biological. It must be noted that none of the vaccinations, routine or otherwise, were recorded on my F Med 4 medical documentation despite my documents being present at the time of vaccination in the UK …

He added:

Vaccinations and medications you were given for the Gulf War were classified secret; therefore, they would not be recorded …

He continued:

In 1997 the MoD admitted that a facsimile was sent by the Department of Health to the MoD advising the MoD of concerns and anxieties over giving anthrax vaccine in conjunction with the whooping cough (pertussis). At the time of the admission of this fact the MoD stated they did not know who had sent the fax and did not know who received it at the MoD. This was an untruth. The fax was from Dr. Jeremy Metters, Department of Health, to the Secretary of State for Defence. … [Organophosphates] had been purchased in Saudi Arabia with Arabic instructions, which led to the wrong concentrations being put down in troop areas.

See:

Inquiry into Gulf War

It is difficult for anyone to truly comprehend what the soldiers endured. It appears that, instead of being protected, these brave men and women were used solely as guinea pigs to test out various vaccines, chemicals and poisons. Is it really surprising that they are suffering ill effects many years later?

US Military Also Received Untested and Unlicensed Vaccines Including the Anthrax Vaccine

The UK government were not the only government to order their armed forces to receive the anthrax vaccination, as part of their regime.

According to the documentary Direct Order, the anthrax vaccination was routinely given to every member of the US military and according to a number of soldiers featured in the documentary, any soldier who refused this particular vaccination could end up in jail for disobeying an order.

The documentary, which was released in 2010, states:

 Since 1998 we have given the mandatory anthrax vaccinations to over 600,000 of our young men and women serving in the military. Extensive research has revealed that many of them have died. Reports are that thousands more are ill.

Doctors say that these people suffer from Gulf War syndrome; the military tells us that is an emotional ailment.

We do know that the vaccine given them was not approved by the FDA and we do know that refusal to take the shots has resulted in dishonourable discharge, fines and prison. We do know that mandatory anthrax vaccinations are set to continue.

This documentary leaves us in no doubt, that hundreds of thousands of US servicemen and women have been used by their government as part of an ongoing human experiment and a large number of personal testaments, outlined the pain and suffering that this experiment has caused.

Technical Sergeant Jeff Moore, Air Force Reserve, stated:

I didn’t know about the anthrax shots during the Gulf War. In September 99 President Clinton sent executive order 13139 that allows DoD (Department of Defense) to experiment on us without our signed consent or knowledge.

He continued:

The crew were pulled aside and told to march into this tent, they were told that they were going to be given a shot, it was classified, they had to do it livestock and they were not to talk about it and there were not supposed to be any side effects from it and the shot would not be entered in their shot records.

Sergeant Moore was one of the many who suffered an adverse reaction from this vaccine.

Dr. Garth L. Nicolson’s Research into Vaccine Gulf War Syndrome Link

Dr. Garth L. Nicolson is the President, Chief Scientific Officer and Research Professor of Molecular Pathology at the Institute for Molecular Medicine in Huntington Beach, California. He is also a Conjoint Professor at the University of Newcastle (Australia). He was formerly the David Bruton Jr. Chair in Cancer Research and Professor and Chairman of the Department of Tumor Biology at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, and he was Professor of Internal Medicine and Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. He was also Professor of Comparative Pathology at Texas A & M University. Professor Nicolson has published over 640 medical and scientific papers, including editing 20 books, and he has served on the Editorial Boards of 30 medical and scientific journals and was a Senior Editor of four of these. The complete resume of his academic career up to this point is 74 pages in length.

Dr. Garth L. Nicolson’s expertise in the area of vaccine contamination was enhanced by being a medical investigator in over 1000 cases of Gulf War syndrome. He was appointed Chairman of the Medical-Scientific Panel for the Persian Gulf War Veterans Conference. He served as authority to the United States House of Representatives, and for his service he was conferred honorary Colonel of the US Army Special Forces and honorary US Navy SEAL.

Dr. Nicolson, in a lecture in 2008 which can be found on YouTube, stated that the number one source of Gulf War illnesses were the microbes that military personnel received as contaminates in the vaccines they were given prior to being deployed to the Persian Gulf.

Most military personnel received 20 to 30 vaccines during a 2 to 3 day period prior to being deployed for the first Gulf War. He explained:

“It was very wrong to do this. It is very immunosuppressive to give all those vaccinations in a short period of time. It makes people very susceptible to super infections or to being infected by a contaminant in the vaccine.”

President Clinton Executive Order 13139 Revealed

Sure enough, meticulous research has revealed that President Clinton did indeed authorize and sign a document on September 30, 1999, titled Executive Order 13139, which stated:

Section 1. Policy. Military personnel deployed in particular military operations could potentially be exposed to a range of chemical, biological, and radiological weapons as well as diseases endemic to an area of operations. It is the policy of the United States Government to provide our military personnel with safe and effective vaccines, antidotes, and treatments that will negate or minimize the effects of these health threats. 

The document indicated that many of the vaccinations, antidotes and treatments that were to be given to the servicemen and women were not only unapproved by the FDA but were also classified as “Investigational New Drugs.”

Executive order 13139 – page 1 of 4.

Executive order 13139 – page 2 of 4.

Executive order 13139 – page 3 of 4.

Executive order 13139 – page 4 of 4.

If this is true, then these vaccinations, antidotes and treatments were far from safe, and what we found to be even more shocking was the fact that, section 3 of the document did indeed give the DoD permission to use these “so-called preventions” without the signed consent of military personnel.

What is Gulf War Syndrome?

The symptoms reported by veterans and listed on the Environmental Illness Resource (EIR) website are as follows:

  • fatigue
  • persistent headaches
  • muscle aches/pains
  • neurological symptoms e.g. tingling and numbness in limbs
  • cognitive dysfunction – short term memory loss, poor concentration, inability to take in information
  • mood and sleep disturbances – depression, anxiety, insomnia
  • dermatological symptoms – skin rashes, unusual hair loss
  • respiratory symptoms – persistent coughing, bronchitis, asthma
  • chemical sensitivities
  • gastrointestinal symptoms – diarrhea, constipation, nausea, bloating
  • cardiovascular symptoms
  • menstrual symptoms

Interestingly, the EIR also stated that:

6. Vaccinations – Troops sent to the Gulf were given a large cocktail of vaccinations in a short period of time. In total, US servicemen may have received as many as 17 different vaccines, including live vaccines (polio and yellow fever) as well as experimental vaccines that had not been approved (anthrax, botulinum toxoid) and were of doubtful efficacy. In the UK, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) has declared only 10 vaccines given but reports from veterans and official documents seem to tell a different story.

A large 2002 study of 900 veterans found a strong correlation between the anthrax vaccine and subsequent ill health. The study indicated that those who received anthrax vaccines reported more adverse reactions than those who did not receive the anthrax vaccine. It also found that the more severe any initial reaction to the vaccine was, the more severe long term health effects were.

A lot of recent research has involved studying the effects of vaccines that use pertussis, the bacteria responsible for whooping cough, as an adjunct. It has been proposed that the use of pertussis as an adjuvant could trigger neurodegeneration by increasing secretion of certain immune chemicals, such as interleukin-1beta, in the brain. In turn, brain lesions may be sustained by stress or neurotoxic chemical combinations Pertussis vaccine was used in the gulf “off-label,” which means it wasn’t approved to be used on servicemen as it was. Its use in the Gulf War can thus be classed as experimental. The manufacturers of pertussis were not advised of this unlicensed use.

Dr. Philip F. Incao of Denver, Colorado provides what may be an explanation of why some people given this cocktail of vaccinations remained healthy while the health of others was sent into decline resulting in chronic illness. Dr. Incao explains that the immune system and mechanism by which vaccinations work, is much more complicated than was thought until recently. Rather than stimulating the whole immune system against a certain pathogen, vaccinations only stimulate the humoral, or Th2, branch of the immune system which is responsible for producing antibodies that recognize pathogens as invaders. Over activation of the Th2 mediated immune response leads to allergic and autoimmune disease. Dr. Incao suggests that giving vaccinations to people whose immune systems are already Th2 dominant will exacerbate exiting conditions and may lead to what we know as Gulf War syndrome. A large body of research seems to confirm this, showing that those veterans with Gulf War syndrome tend to have an immune system shifted towards a Th2 response.

Read a full explanation from Dr. Incao here.

It is clear from all of these reports that large numbers of military personnel, both in the UK and in the US, were given a large quantity of unlicensed and untested vaccinations by their governments, which has ultimately resulted in many of them suffering from long term illnesses, disability and, in some cases, death.

Whistle-blower says VA hid data that could have helped suicidal, sick veterans

Health Impact News Editor Comments

As Christina England was writing this expose the past week, Polly Tommey, one of the producers and part of the VAXXED film team, filmed an interview with Sherrie Saunders, a former military medic and now whistleblower regarding military vaccines.

Sherrie discovered that the animal protein in the anthrax vaccine was causing Gulf War syndrome in some soldiers, some who even died. When she reported it to her commander, she got a visit from someone in Washington, D.C. and was told to keep quiet about it.

She is no longer keeping quiet. Listen to this interview which is going viral on the Internet:

Medical Doctors Opposed to Forced Vaccinations – Should Their Views be Silenced?

eBook – Available for immediate download.

One of the biggest myths being propagated in the compliant mainstream media today is that doctors are either pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine, and that the anti-vaccine doctors are all “quacks.”

However, nothing could be further from the truth in the vaccine debate. Doctors are not unified at all on their positions regarding “the science” of vaccines, nor are they unified in the position of removing informed consent to a medical procedure like vaccines.

The two most extreme positions are those doctors who are 100% against vaccines and do not administer them at all, and those doctors that believe that ALL vaccines are safe and effective for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.

Very few doctors fall into either of these two extremist positions, and yet it is the extreme pro-vaccine position that is presented by the U.S. Government and mainstream media as being the dominant position of the medical field.

In between these two extreme views, however, is where the vast majority of doctors practicing today would probably categorize their position. Many doctors who consider themselves “pro-vaccine,” for example, do not believe that every single vaccine is appropriate for every single individual.

Many doctors recommend a “delayed” vaccine schedule for some patients, and not always the recommended one-size-fits-all CDC childhood schedule. Other doctors choose to recommend vaccines based on the actual science and merit of each vaccine, recommending some, while determining that others are not worth the risk for children, such as the suspect seasonal flu shot.

These doctors who do not hold extreme positions would be opposed to government-mandated vaccinations and the removal of all parental exemptions.

In this eBook, I am going to summarize the many doctors today who do not take the most extremist pro-vaccine position, which is probably not held by very many doctors at all, in spite of what the pharmaceutical industry, the federal government, and the mainstream media would like the public to believe.

Study: Coconut Oil Helps Hypertension – Science Based Health Benefits of Coconut Oil Keep Increasing

by Paul Fassa
Health Impact News

The write-ups and anecdotal reports on using virgin coconut oil (VCO) for health purposes has sparked many health food advocates and “foodies” toward using it. This trend is increasing despite the half century of junk science dogma that saturated fats cause obesity and cardiovascular disease.

Yes, coconut oil is a saturated fat with medium chain triglycerides (MCT), which makes it more digestible to provide energy and healthier than other oils.

Most people still cling to the old misguided “science” of saturated fats causing obesity and heat disease created by one flawed study and carried by the medical establishment and the media, enough to create a huge no or low fat industry that actually has contributed more to obesity and heart disease than any other dietary choice before.

Add the current type 2 diabetes epidemic to this little list of dangerous diseases that have increased significantly after the saturated fat scare drove millions into avoiding saturated fats while bringing billions of dollars into the processed food industry.

Despite the popular misconception of saturated fats creating fat, reports and claims of slimming down and losing weight with a high fat diet began emerging within the last decade. It’s too easy for the saturated fat causes obesity and heart disease crowd to dismiss all these reports and claims as merely anecdotal and not scientific.

However, it seems the science is beginning to catch sight of reality, for those who insist on science based studies that are peer reviewed and published, proving that anecdotal health successes true.

Virgin Coconut Oil Studies

The latest peer reviewed study published in 2016 was titled “Renoprotective effect of virgin coconut oil in heated palm oil diet-induced hypertensive rats.” The Malaysian researchers were aware of how reheated oils used over and over in deep fat fryers create hypertension (high blood pressure) and other markers for cardiovascular disease. But their focus this time was renal, or kidney health.

So they used five times heated palm oil (5HPO) to induce high blood pressure in rats bred for animal study research, Sprague-Dawley rats. The rats were divided into four groups fed slightly different diets, half with 5HPO and the other half with virgin coconut oil (VCO). Systolic blood pressure was measured before and after the 16 week study.

The rats fed VCO had significantly less oxidative stress markers in their kidneys than the 5HPO fed rats, leading the researchers to conclude “ … virgin coconut oil has a potential to reduce the development of hypertension and renal injury induced by dietary heated oil, possibly via its antioxidant protective effects on the kidneys.” (Study abstract source)

An earlier Malaysian animal study determined that saturated fat VCO did not increase weight or create higher blood pressure (BP). Heated five times virgin coconut oil (5HVCO) did create create higher blood pressure and mild cardiovascular disease markers. But it was mentioned that both palm and soy oils reheated only once produced those same effects of 5HVCO.

It’s easy to conclude from those two animal studies alone that virgin coconut oil is a superior dietary oil for health and is safer to use as a cooking oil than other popular unsaturated fat cooking oils. They also provide a reminder of the cardiovascular dangers of restaurant deep fat fried foods that use soy, peanut, palm, or canola oils over and over.

Many Health Impact News readers may know of the anecdotal empirical evidence of VCO slowing down and even reversing Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). This flies in the face of the pharmaceutical industry’s failure to provide anything that helps AD victims after several attempts. (Source)

Fortunately, some studies have indicated that coconut oil is highly helpful for improving mental acuity, memory, and resolving dementia and AD. Coconut oil’s high medium chain triglycerides content is easily converted to ketones by the liver instead of being stored as reserve energy the way long chain triglycerides (LCT) are metabolized.

Brain cells adapt easily to using ketones for fuel as other metabolic efforts wane. Alzheimer’s is considered more as diabetes type 3 because the brain cells have become insulin resistant, disabling glucose/oxygen metabolism. The ketones provide what’s necessary to metabolize oxygen in lieu of glucose. (Source)

The Paleo people encourage incorporating virgin coconut oil into one’s diet along with exercise to lower blood pressure. The article “Eliminating Hypertension with Coconut Oil and Exercise” appeared on the site run by Loren Cordain, Ph.D., author of the Paleo Diet. That article has several references to other studies not mentioned in this article as well.

If you have any blood pressure or cardiovascular health concerns, stay away from partially hydrogenated polyunsaturated and monosaturated vegetable oils and use coconut oil as much as possible for frying and baking in your diet. (Source)

Studies Confirm Other Healing Qualities of Using Coconut Oil

Other studies have demonstrated coconut oil’s ability to eliminate candida overgrowth. Candida yeast infections that overpower probiotic bacteria manifest as several symptoms that may even lead to understanding one has candida.

Again, this type of information only leads to the pharmaceutical industry’s efforts at synthesizing chemical formulations to duplicate a natural substance’s healing dynamics. These efforts usually fail and/or cause harmful side effects.

Among these studies using only coconut oil to eliminate candida yeast overgrowth, a 2010 University of Minnesota study actually recommended consuming 3 and ½ or more tablespoons daily to treat, not prevent, candida yeast overgrowth. (Source)

Another study demonstrated virgin coconut oil provides superior skin health qualities than most topically applied skin care lotions and creams. Virgin coconut oil was even tested as effective against inflammatory acne. (Source)

And there are other benefits from virgin coconut oil that are rarely if ever publicized. It’s rare that it’s tested in the USA because of the pharmaceutical industry’s influence of dominating medicine with synthetic chemicals that can be patented.

Some of the studies that are less motivated by pharmaceutical profit are done in Southeast Asian regions, where traditional dietary coconut and coconut oil flourish. You can find them and others on this site.

Government Vaccine Court Records Show Injuries and Deaths from Flu Shot as 2016 Flu Season Begins

by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

As government medical officials make plans to take away vaccine exemptions for children and seek to make vaccines mandatory in the United States, vital information about the safety of vaccines is either ignored or censored.

The American public is largely unaware that there is a vaccine court known as the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). This program was started as a result of a law passed in 1986 that gave pharmaceutical companies total legal immunity from being sued due to injuries and deaths resulting from vaccines.

If you or a family member is injured or dies from vaccines, you must now sue the federal government in this special vaccine court. Many cases are litigated for years before a settlement is reached.

Once every 3 months the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines meets, and the Department of Justice issues a report of cases settled for vaccine injuries and deaths. As far as I know, Health Impact News is the only media source that publishes these reports each quarter. Past reports can be found here.

The most recent report was just issued on September 20, 2016 which covered the period from 5/16/16 to 8/15/16. 233 cases were adjudicated. 113 of them were listed in the report (see below), specifying the vaccine, the injury or death, and the amount of time the case was pending before settlement.

89 of the 113 cases settled were for injuries and deaths due to the flu vaccine, making the flu vaccine the most dangerous vaccine in the U.S., harming and killing more people than all the other vaccines combined.

How many people in the United States, including doctors and nurses who give flu shots, are made aware of these statistics prior to receiving a flu shot, or allowing one to be given to their children and loved ones?

View the full report here.

Public Largely Unaware of the Vaccine Court: Most Cases Never Litigated

In November of 2014 the Government Accounting Office (GAO) issued the first report on America’s “Vaccine Court,” known as the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), in almost 15 years. Most citizens of the United States are not even aware that there is something called the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, and that if you suffer harm or death due to a vaccine, that you cannot sue the manufacturer of the vaccine, but you must sue the federal government and try to obtain compensation from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund,which is funded by taxes paid on vaccines. The amount of money currently sitting in this trust fund is over $3.6 BILLION, as of September 30, 2015.

As I noted above, Congress gave the pharmaceutical companies immunity against lawsuits for injuries or deaths resulting in vaccines in 1986. Prior to this time, there were so many lawsuits pending against pharmaceutical companies for injuries and deaths due to vaccines, that the pharmaceutical industry basically blackmailed congress and told them that if they did not grant them legal immunity against the liabilities of vaccines, that they would quit making them. These vaccine products cannot survive in a free market, they are so bad.

The November 2014 GAO report criticized the government for not making the public more aware that the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program exists, and that there are funds available for vaccine injuries. Therefore, the settlements represented by vaccine injuries and deaths included in the DOJ report probably represent a small fraction of the actual vaccine injuries and deaths occurring in America today.

Vaccine Injuries are Seldom Reported

The U.S. government keeps a database of reports documenting vaccine injuries and deaths called The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The problem is that very few medical officials ever report vaccine injuries or deaths, either because they are not trained to recognize them, or due to pressure within their profession to not report them. To admit that vaccines do cause harm is professional suicide for most doctors and medical professionals.

Hence, the quarterly DOJ report on vaccine cases only represents a tiny fraction of the actual cases that exist.

One place we can get a glimpse of the amount of vaccine harm that is being caused in the U.S. today is to look at emergency room visits. As one can see in the report above, with most of the settlements being cases of harm caused by the flu vaccine, Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) is the most common injury suffered from the flu shot. GBS is a debilitating disease that attacks a person’s own immune system and damages their nerve cells, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis. It is very similar to the symptoms one may see with polio.

If you are taken to the emergency room with signs of GBS during flu season, chances are one of the first questions the doctors will ask you is if you have received the flu shot recently. GBS is also listed as a side effect of the flu shot in the package insert.

An emergency room nurse published his experience in dealing with the volume of vaccine injuries he was seeing, and how reluctant other medical personnel were in reporting these injuries:

As an E.R. nurse, I have seen the cover up. Where do you think kids go when they have a vaccine reaction?

They go to the E.R.

They come to me.

I cannot even begin to guess how many times over the years I have seen vaccine reactions come through my E.R. Without any exaggeration, it has to be counted in the hundreds.

Sometimes it seemed like it was one or two cases in a single shift, every shift, for weeks. Then I would get a lull, and I wouldn’t catch one for a week or two, then I’d catch another case per night for a couple weeks. This was common.

Once, I was training a nursing student, about to graduate, on their E.R. experience rotation in nursing school. This student and I floated up to triage to cover the triage nurse for a break. I was quizzing them on what to ask and look for as a triage nurse on pediatric kids that came through. I made a point about asking about immunizations right out the gates. The student was puzzled, and asked why, and I told the student because we see vaccine reactions every day and it’s their job to catch it, alert the doctor and the parents, and report it to VAERS.

Some higher power apparently smiled on my attempt to open the eyes of another nurse I guess, because not even ten minutes later, a woman brought her child up to the counter. Sudden onset super high fever and lethargy. I asked if the child was up to date on vaccination.

The mother replied he had them just a few hours ago.

I glanced at the student, who looked shocked and looked back at me in disbelief. I nodded, told them to remember this, and then took the mom and her child to finish the triage in back. When I was done I came back and sat down with the student, and asked what he learned that night so far.

The first response: “What I was told about vaccines wasn’t true”.

I couldn’t have said it better. That student is going to go on to be like me, advocating for his patients with his eyes wide open.

The cases almost always presented similarly, and often no one else connected it. The child comes in with either a fever approaching 105, or seizures, or lethargy/can’t wake up, or sudden overwhelming sickness, screaming that won’t stop, spasms, GI inclusion, etc.

And one of the first questions I would ask as triage nurse, was, are they current on their vaccinations? It’s a safe question that nobody sees coming, and nobody understands the true impact of. Parents (and co-workers) usually just think I’m trying to rule out the vaccine preventable diseases, when in fact, I am looking to see how recently they were vaccinated to determine if this is a vaccine reaction.

Too often I heard a parent say something akin to “Yes they are current, the pediatrician caught up their vaccines this morning during their check up, and the pediatrician said they were in perfect health!”

If I had a dollar for every time I’d heard that, I could fly to Europe for free.

But here’s the more disturbing part.

For all the cases I’ve seen, I have NEVER seen any medical provider report them to VAERS. I have filed VAERS reports. But I am the ONLY nurse I have EVER met that files VAERS reports.

Mind you, I have served in multiple hospitals across multiple states, alongside probably well over a hundred doctors and probably 300-400+ nurses.

I’ve worked in big hospitals (San Francisco Bay Area Metro 40 bed ER, Las Vegas NV Metro 44 bed ER) and small hospitals (Rural access 2 bed ER, remote community 4 bed ER) and everything in between.

When I say NEVER, I mean NEVER.

I have even made a point of sitting in the most prominent spot at the nurses station filling out a VAERS report to make sure as many people saw me doing it as possible to generate the expected “what are you doing” responses to get that dialog going with people.

And in every case, if a nurse approached me, their response was “I’ve never done that” or “I didn’t know we could do that” or, worse “What is VAERS?” which was actually the most common response.

The response from doctors? Silence. Absolute total refusal to engage in discussion or to even acknowledge what I was doing or what VAERS was.

The big take away from that?

VAERS is WOEFULLY under reported.

I am PROOF of that. (Read the full blog post here.)

Autism Vaccine Injuries Not Allowed: Too Many

One of medical conditions resulting from vaccine injuries you will not find in the quarterly DOJ reports is autism. When the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund was set up in 1988, autism was the most prevalent vaccine injury brought before the vaccine court, mostly from the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine.

It soon became apparent that the trust fund, funded through taxes the public pays on vaccines, would not be sufficient to litigate all the claims for autism as a vaccine injury. By March 1, 2010, 13,330 cases had been filed in the special vaccine court, with 5,617 representing autism cases. Of those 13,330 cases filed up to March 1, 2010, only 2,409 were compensated. The rest were dismissed, but there were 5,933 cases still pending, and most of those were claims for vaccine-induced autism, mostly due to either the MMR vaccine, or vaccines containing thimerosal (mercury).

So how did the federal government and the vaccine court handle this?

Simple. They took 3 “test cases” that they said represented all of them, and litigated against those claims. Their own appointed judges then ruled in each case that vaccines were not the cause of their autism. Then they told everyone else that their autism could not have been caused by vaccines, and that they would pay no damages for all those hundreds of thousands of children suffering with autism. This was all part of what is called The Omnibus Autism Proceeding.

So if you have a child today injured by vaccines and suffering with autism, you cannot sue the federal government in vaccine court, as their official position is that vaccines do not cause autism.

Vaccine Autism Connection: Scandal “Bigger Than Watergate”

The film VAXXED has caused quite a controversy in film festivals and theaters around the U.S. this year. It documents fraud within the CDC over the MMR vaccine and autism cover-up. It documents the story of the CDC scientist whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, and producer Del Bigtree claims this story is “bigger than Watergate.” The film is showing to packed theaters across the country, as the public is hungry for this kind of information that the mainstream media censors.

Doctors Who are Not Vaccine Extremists Question Vaccines, Especially the Flu Shot

As can clearly be seen by the government’s own vaccine statistics, vaccines are both dangerous and deadly. There are many doctors across the U.S. who understand this, and do not adhere to the extremist vaccine positions, that ALL vaccines are good, for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.

The vaccine debate is not a debate between extremist positions, but a debate that in reality looks at the merit of each vaccine, and the impact of the vaccine schedule with so many vaccines being given together. For more information, see:

Medical Doctors Opposed to Forced Vaccinations – Should Their Views be Silenced?

In the video above, Dr. Mark Geier explains the fraud behind the flu vaccine. Dr. Geier is NOT anti-vaccine. He is an M.D. and has a Ph.D. in genetics. He spent 10 years working at the National Institute of Health, and was a professor at Johns Hopkins University as a geneticist. He is also the author of over 150 peer-reviewed publications.

He worked on vaccine safety and efficacy for more than 30 years. He was one of four scientists that worked to replace the DTP vaccine, a vaccine that caused every child to become sick with a high fever at the time of vaccination, with the DTaP vaccine, which is a more purified vaccine and causes illness due to fever in only 3% of those vaccinated.

In the video above, he explains that the flu shot causes Guillain-Barré Syndrome, and that the flu shot is not very effective in preventing the flu. He also explains that the CDC does not follow the law for vaccines in requiring long-term safety testing for the influenza vaccine like they do with other vaccines, as it is impossible to test a vaccine that changes every year. So the flu vaccine is basically an experimental vaccine that they want to give out to 300 million people every year. There are also no studies showing the safety of giving the flu vaccine to the same person every single year. However, Dr. Geier points out that the CDC is in the business of distributing flu vaccines, because they represent 300 million doses per year, whereas all the childhood vaccines together only number 20 million.

Dr. Geier goes on to explain that flu is “the wrong thing to vaccinate against” because you have to keep re-vaccinating against it every year, unlike childhood infectious diseases, such as smallpox, that are only vaccinated for once. Dr. Geier points out how ridiculous it is spend billions of dollars on a vaccine that might, at its best, save about 50 lives a year, when there are far more serious problems causing death that are more worthy of that kind of expenditure.

Medical Doctors Opposed to Forced Vaccinations – Should Their Views be Silenced?

eBook – Available for immediate download.

One of the biggest myths being propagated in the compliant mainstream media today is that doctors are either pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine, and that the anti-vaccine doctors are all “quacks.”

However, nothing could be further from the truth in the vaccine debate. Doctors are not unified at all on their positions regarding “the science” of vaccines, nor are they unified in the position of removing informed consent to a medical procedure like vaccines.

The two most extreme positions are those doctors who are 100% against vaccines and do not administer them at all, and those doctors that believe that ALL vaccines are safe and effective for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.

Very few doctors fall into either of these two extremist positions, and yet it is the extreme pro-vaccine position that is presented by the U.S. Government and mainstream media as being the dominant position of the medical field.

In between these two extreme views, however, is where the vast majority of doctors practicing today would probably categorize their position. Many doctors who consider themselves “pro-vaccine,” for example, do not believe that every single vaccine is appropriate for every single individual.

Many doctors recommend a “delayed” vaccine schedule for some patients, and not always the recommended one-size-fits-all CDC childhood schedule. Other doctors choose to recommend vaccines based on the actual science and merit of each vaccine, recommending some, while determining that others are not worth the risk for children, such as the suspect seasonal flu shot.

These doctors who do not hold extreme positions would be opposed to government-mandated vaccinations and the removal of all parental exemptions.

In this eBook, I am going to summarize the many doctors today who do not take the most extremist pro-vaccine position, which is probably not held by very many doctors at all, in spite of what the pharmaceutical industry, the federal government, and the mainstream media would like the public to believe.

Dr. Andrew Moulden: Every Vaccine Produces Harm

eBook – Available for immediate download.

Canadian physician Dr. Andrew Moulden provided clear scientific evidence to prove that every dose of vaccine given to a child or an adult produces harm. The truth that he uncovered was rejected by the conventional medical system and the pharmaceutical industry. Nevertheless, his warning and his message to America remains as a solid legacy of the man who stood up against big pharma and their program to vaccinate every person on the Earth.

Dr. Moulden died unexpectedly in November of 2013 at age 49.

Because of the strong opposition from big pharma concerning Dr. Moulden’s research, we became concerned that the name of this brilliant researcher and his life’s work had nearly been deleted from the internet. His reputation was being disparaged, and his message of warning and hope was being distorted and buried without a tombstone. This book summarizes his teaching and is a must-read for everyone who wants to learn the “other-side” of the vaccine debate that the mainstream media routinely censors.

Healthy Traditions Announces Glyphosate-Tested Traditionally Produced Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

Health Impact News

Healthy Traditions Press Release

Healthy Traditions announced today the launch of their new product, raw Apple Cider Vinegar with “mother.” Starting the last part of 2014, Healthy Traditions, a division of Tropical Traditions, Inc., has started testing all of its products for the presence of the herbicide glyphosate, since many of their USDA certified organic products were tested to be contaminated with glyphosate.

Finding a supplier of Apple Cider Vinegar that could be tested and traced all the way back to the producer proved difficult, as many apple cider vinegars are produced with apples from many different orchards, meaning that a single batch test may not represent all bottles used in each batch. So they began to search for a single source orchard to produce their own apple cider vinegar.

The Healthy Traditions Apple Cider Vinegar is made by hand on a small family farm in Wisconsin. This high quality and great tasting vinegar starts by hand picking a mixture of apples that are suited perfectly for cider, imparting a depth of flavors to the vinegar that are unique.

The apples are grown in Wisconsin on a certified organic orchard that practices sustainable agriculture by using livestock to maintain the orchard floor. By rotating different animals in the orchard the caretakers are able to reduce weeds and insects that would hinder the apple production.

Even though some antibiotics are approved for apple production in organic systems and used by some organic orchards, the caretakers here are opposed to the use of any antibiotics or chemicals and instead have selected varieties of apples that are naturally resistant to disease and fungus. As an added assurance the apples are tested for the presence of glyphosate found in the world’s most popular herbicide, and none was found.

Once the apples are picked they are pressed to make cider and then stored in stainless steel vats to ferment where the sugar is turned into alcohol. From there the “Mother” imparts a bacteria to the mixture that feeds on the alcohol and in a second fermentation transforms the hard cider to vinegar with no residual alcohol left over.

The vinegar is hand bottled into a 1 quart amber glass Boston Round growler, that protects the delicate vinegar from the damaging effects of light. The bottle is attractive and reusable and comes fitted with a premium phenolic cap. The vinegar is raw and unfiltered to contain the “Mother.”

This Apple Cider Vinegar is:

  • Glyphosate-Tested
  • Packaged in amber glass for protection
  • Unfiltered and contains the “Mother”
  • Raw and unpasteurized
  • Made in small batches by hand
  • Naturally fermented from apples that are tested negative for pesticides and chemicals

The product can be ordered here.
