AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH DR. BARBARA STARFIELD

December 8th, 2009 admin 1 comment

MEDICALLY CAUSED DEATH IN AMERICA

By Jon Rappoport

On July 26, 2000, the US medical community received a titanic shock to the system, when one of its most respected and honored public-health experts, Dr. Barbara Starfield, revealed her findings on healthcare in America. 

The landmark Starfield study, “Is US health really the best in the world?”, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, came to the following conclusions: 

Every year in the US there are:

12,000 deaths from unnecessary surgeries; 
7,000 deaths from medication errors in hospitals;  
20,000 deaths from other errors in hospitals; 
80,000 deaths from infections acquired in hospitals; 
106,000 deaths from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines.
The total of medically-caused deaths in the US every year is 225,000.

This makes the medical system the third leading cause of death in the US, behind heart disease and cancer.

The Starfield study is the most explosive revelation about modern healthcare in America ever published.  The credentials of its author and the journal in which it appeared are, within the highest medical circles, impeccable.     

Yet, on the heels of Starfield’s astonishing findings, although media reporting was extensive, it soon dwindled.  No major newspaper or television network mounted an ongoing “Medicalgate” investigation.  Neither the US Department of Justice nor federal health agencies undertook prolonged remedial action.

All in all, it seemed that those parties who could have taken effective steps to correct this mind-boggling situation preferred to ignore it.         

On December 6-7, 2009, I interviewed Dr. Starfield by email.

TIP RESPONSE: From a Concerned Aunt

December 4th, 2009 admin No comments

The original message we received is as follows:

My twin niece and nephew (born prematurely) and their younger brother (ages 6 & 4) all received the seasonal flu vaccine approximately 6 weeks ago… they have all be sick ever since. Started with the kids, then their parents, getting “a stomach virus” for which they were all given antibiotics, my sister & brother-in-law didn’t even have symptoms yet.  Since then it’s be various issues – strep throat, sore throat, ear infections, more stomach sickness. My brother-in-law is the only one who did not get the vaccine and his illness(es) have been the least severe. Both of my nephews and my niece have asthma, my niece has very mild epilepsy, one nephew has Molluscum Contagiosum which I’m convinced was the direct result of his chicken pox vaccine in April, and the other nephew has several issues including mild cerebral palsy and aspergers (although the aspergers has not been diagnosed due to my sister not wanting to face facts.) Ant the thing that’s the most frustrating is that although
the signs very clearly point to these live virus vaccines being the culprit for many of these issues… my sister & her husband don’t see the correlation because “Why would the Dr give them if they’re not safe”.  These dr.s should be held liable for each and every person who’s becomes ill after getting these vaccines and the drug companies should as well.

I also have a friend who’s son has OMS as a direct result of receiving the MMR and Chicken pox vaccine at 13 months of age. He’s now 3 and continues to have to go through rounds of IV treatments, steroid shots and now his second round of chemo due to a relapse.

STOP THESE DAMN VACCINATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our Reply:

This is in response to your letter posted on the pandemicfluonline website.

As your sister believes that the doctor would not give the flu shot (or any vaccine) unless it was safe, so do many, many people.  Even many of the doctors who give the vaccines believe them to be safe. 

It is hard for individuals and/or groups, who are opposed to the  toxins and contaminants in vaccines, to impress upon individuals who believe in vaccine’s supposed safety, that they really are more harmful than they are made out to be.  The pharmaceutical industry has bought and paid for a multitude of “scientific studies” to point only to the alleged benefits of vaccines while downplaying or completely denying their risks.  Most people have no idea that this is being done.  The “science” that the pharmaceutical industry, the mainstream scientific community, the mainstream medical community and the mainstream media want to reach the ears of America, is largely, what does.

HOW POWER CORRUPTS: THE DEVASTATING TRUTH ABOUT THE OBAMA HEALTHCARE PLAN, PART TWO

November 30th, 2009 admin No comments

By Jon Rappoport
http://www.insolutions.info/
http://www.nomorefakenews.com/
http://www.pandemicfluonline.com/

Why is the Obama legislation double-barreled?  Why does it offer both a private and public option?

Why are we hearing relatively few howls of protest from the private insurance industry?

What happened to the Democrats’ single-payer program, in which Medicare would be expanded to include all Americans under one roof?

The answers to these questions yield up the same result: the private insurance mammoth so far supports the Obama Plan.  The private (and possibly the public) option will be priced by the insurance companies, to ensure profits, and since all 300 million Americans will be forced to sign on to one option or the other, these insurance companies will handle some of the large spillover.  New customers.   

In other words, the Obama Plan is a government-corporate partnership from top to bottom.  It always was. 

The insurance companies agreed to call in their markers on Congressional legislators and get the necessary votes to pass the Plan.

The die is not yet cast.  But that’s the strategy. 

Think of the amount of force present in this arrangement.  Insurance giants, pharmaceutical corporations, the federal government—all working together to control medical treatment for Americans.  And the hidden secret is: many of these treatments are fraught with danger.  They injure people.  They kill them.  225,000 of them a year. 

All this power funnels down into the doctor’s office where the patient is handed his diagnosis and drug prescription. 

As I presented in Part 1, here is the breakdown of medically-caused deaths in the US:

Each year in the US there are:

12,000 deaths from unnecessary surgeries; 

7,000 deaths from medication errors in hospitals; 

20,000 deaths from other errors in hospitals; 

80,000 deaths from infections acquired in hospitals; 

106,000 deaths from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines.

The total of medically-caused deaths in the US every year is 225,000.

This makes the medical system the third leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease and cancer.

Source:  July 26, 2000, Journal of the American Medical Association, Barbara Starfield (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health), “Is US health really the best in the world?”

If the Obama healthcare plan passes into law, there will be a gaggle of vultures descending on the decaying landscape.

THE DEVASTATING TRUTH ABOUT THE OBAMA HEALTH PLAN

November 30th, 2009 admin No comments

By Jon Rappoport
http://www.insolutions.info/
http://www.nomorefakenews.com/
November 28, 2009

We are at a defining and crucial moment in our history.  A machine is in motion that will alter our future.  If after you read this article, you agree with its main points, or at least feel they need to be heard, send it on to others.  Find ways to make your voice count.

It is one thing to read and understand the details of the Obama Health Plan.  It is another thing to grasp the kind of power this bill will create, and what that power, in the future, will mean and do.

I realize that many people reading this essay have no interest in alternative medicine.  However, that field represents freedom of choice for millions of Americans, and if you want to deny that choice—because you have a mistaken notion about, and a misplaced faith in, how medical science actually operates—the medical facts I describe and cite below should bring about a new appreciation of what freedom looks like, and how important the job of protecting it is.

This might be the most important medical article I’ve ever written, and in 20 years as a reporter, I’ve written many. 

As I begin this essay on Thanksgiving morning, I recall that, 15 years ago, I was preparing to challenge Henry Waxman for his seat in the US House, in the 29th District, Los Angeles.  At that time, the issue was Health Freedom, the right of every American to choose how to maintain and improve his/her health.  And here I am again, with the same issue—only this time, there is a gargantuan White House program in place to destroy that freedom from the top down.

And various alternative-health advocates, having lost their minds, are supporting it.  Among them are people who actually believe the small affirmative nods from politicians, in the direction of alternative medicine, are signaling an enlightened age under the Obama Star.

Duped again.  One more time.    

I have never imagined Democrats or Republicans represented the American people.  This time, it is the political Left, with their naïve belief in “science” and “humanitarian work” who are leading the country over a cliff.

World Health Organization ‘Manufactured’ The Global Swine Flu Scare — Suspected Of Corruption

November 30th, 2009 admin No comments

Novye Izvestija
November 26, 2009

Translated from Russian by Infowars Ireland

The Swine Flu Pandemic which Novye Izvestija has written about many times, may be the most ambitious scam and corruption of our time. In any case, the enormous commercial aspect of the “swine flu scare” is already evident.

The same conclusion was reached by Danish journalists who expertly examined the links between the World Health Organization (WHO) and the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, who gained wealth by selling drugs to counter the disease. It turns out, for example, that many scientists who sit on various committees of WHO, carefully concealed the fact that they receive money from the giant pharmaceutical companies of the world.

According to the international investment bank JP Morgan, the pharmaceutical industry will make more than 7 Billion Euros this year on the sale of A/H1N1 vaccines. Leading western countries have ordered enough doses to vaccinate either their entire population (such as Australia) or one third (Germany and several other EU member States). Factories making the vaccines and pills are working around the clock, in four shift rotations, with a backlog of orders …they are not experiencing the global economic crisis as others might.

For the first time in many years flu pandemic ‘panic’ has affected the EU. The vaccine has been produced without a sufficient number of clinical and laboratory tests.

Is such a panic justified? a growing number of specialists are examining the issue by comparing the mortality statistics from the swine flu virus and it’s ‘conventional’ varieties, each Autumn they begin their march across the planet. So far, according to WHO, six thousand people have fallen victim to A/H1N1, while the average annual death rate during epidemics of ‘traditional’ varieties of flu reaches half a million.

GlaxoSmithKline Recalls H1N1 Vaccine in Canada Over ‘Life-Threatening’ Allergy Risk

November 30th, 2009 admin No comments

Associated Press

LONDON —  The pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline says it has advised medical staff in Canada to not use one batch of swine flu vaccine for fear it may trigger life-threatening allergies.

GlaxoSmithKline spokeswoman Gwenan White said Tuesday the company issued the advice after reports that one batch of the swine flu vaccine might have caused more allergic reactions than normal.

She says the affected batch contains 172,000 doses of the vaccine. She declined to say how many doses had been administered before the advice to stop using them was given.

White says GlaxoSmithKline wrote to Canadian healthcare professionals advising them to stop using the batch on Nov. 18. She says a total of 7.5 million doses of the vaccine have been distributed in Canada.

WHO: Drug Resistant H1N1 No Major Change in Virus

November 30th, 2009 admin No comments

Reuters

Tamiflu resistance in some H1N1 patients with badly weakened immune systems does not seem to reflect a major change in the virus’ susceptibility to the frontline drug, the World Health Organization said on Thursday.Nine people in Britain and the United States developed a Tamiflu-resistant form of swine flu while being treated in hospital mainly for blood cancers, said WHO flu expert Keiji Fukuda.

“We don’t know the full answer. But it is more likely that we are not seeing a change, a major shift in the epidemiology or in the properties of these viruses with regard to oseltamivir resistance,” he told a weekly news conference.

He said Tamiflu, known generically as oseltamivir and made by Switzerland’s Roche, was effective when used correctly and early.

About 75 cases of oseltamivir-resistant viruses have been reported worldwide in recent months, mostly isolated cases which have arisen after preventive treatment with the drug, he said.

“Right now we do not see any evidence of a large impact in immuno-compromised people with milder forms and we do not see a large impact in HIV-infected populations,” he said.

FLU TO CONTINUE FOR WEEKS

Swine flu is expected to infect more people in the northern hemisphere in the next weeks before there is a downturn, but is less prevalent in the southern hemisphere, Fukuda said.

2 French Patients Die From Mutated H1N1 Flu Virus

November 30th, 2009 admin No comments

Associated Press

PARIS —  French health officials say two people diagnosed with a slightly mutated swine flu virus that also has been found in other countries have died.The Institute for Health Oversight said Friday that the two people, who have not been identified, had been hospitalized in different cities and died after being diagnosed with the variant swine flu.

Last week, the World Health Organization said it is investigating samples of variant swine flu linked to two deaths and one severe case in Norway, but that so far the significance of the mutation is unclear.

WHO says the same mutation has been found in both fatal and mild cases elsewhere, including in Brazil, China, Japan, Mexico, Ukraine, and the United States.

Concern as China Reports 8 Cases of H1N1 Mutation

November 30th, 2009 admin No comments

Associated Press

China has detected eight cases of swine flu mutation, a health official said Wednesday, amid longstanding concerns among scientists that the virus could change into a more dangerous form.Last week, the World Health Organization said it was investigating samples of variant swine flu linked to two deaths in Norway.

But Shu Yuelong, director of the Chinese National Influenza Center, told the official Xinhua News Agency that the mutated swine flu virus found China has shown an “isolated” spread in the mainland, is not resistant to drugs and can be prevented by vaccines.

The report did not provide any more details, such as when the cases were detected and if they were linked to any deaths. Calls to the National Influenza Center rang unanswered while the Health Ministry did not immediately respond to a faxed list of questions.

Swine flu has triggered a global pandemic, and scientists are worried that swine flu could mutate into a more dangerous or more infectious form or swap genes with seasonal or other types of flu.

On Friday, the WHO said it was looking into two deaths and one severe case linked to variant swine flu in Norway, after that country’s Institute of Public Health announced that the mutation could possibly cause more severe disease because it infects tissue deeper in the airway than usual.

CDC: H1N1 Less Widespread, Down to 32 States

November 30th, 2009 admin No comments

FoxNews.com

ATLANTA —  Swine flu infections seem to be dropping, but the number of children who died with the illness rose by about 30, according to a government report released Monday.

Widespread infections of swine flu were reported in 32 states as of Nov. 21, down from 43 states the week before, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials said.

The CDC also said there were 27 new lab-confirmed swine flu deaths in children under 18, bringing the total to about 200 children. That’s the largest one-week tally for children since the pandemic started.

Since it was first identified in April, swine flu has sickened an estimated 22 million Americans, hospitalized about 98,000 and killed 4,000. It has proved to be similar to seasonal flu but a bigger threat to children and young adults.

The swine flu pandemic has so far hit in two waves in the United States: First in the spring, then a larger wave that started in the late summer.

In late October, 48 states reported widespread flu activity. Increasingly, that appears to have been the peak of the second wave. Since then, fewer states have been reporting widespread cases, and the number of school closings due to swine flu has at times dropped to zero.

But there are still plenty of ill people — as many as during the worst days of many regular flu seasons. And CDC officials have said the signs of declining cases do not necessarily mean the worst is over.

“Nothing is typical about this year’s influenza. We may have weeks and months of a lot of disease ahead of us,” said Dr. Anne Schuchat, who heads the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, at a recent press conference.

Monday’s count of children’s deaths represents cases reported in the week ending Nov. 21. While there have been about 200 deaths reported, officials believe there are probably a few hundred more.

Death statistics can lag behind the spread of an illness, CDC officials say.
