The End of Privacy, The Beginning of An Orwellian Police State

In the US, the UK, and other Western countries, we have been secretly moving towards a police state. Privacy is a thing of the past. There are CCTV (Closed-Circuit Television) cameras everywhere, all new cars have GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) "anti-theft" tracking systems in them, and our cell phones have GPS tracking. The logs for phone calls are saved for years by Telecom companies. Companies have sprung up offering a small fee to give anybody your landline or cell phone records. They are advertising this to spouses who think their partners are cheating on them. Companies are monitoring their employees movements while at work to see how long their lunch breaks are, or to tell if delivery workers are using company-paid time to do errands. Some companies monitor data in the trucks such as the speed and even acceleration of their truck drivers. Every e-mail sent is saved and kept by internet providers.

In Britain, all license plates of any car driving on a major highway is scanned and run alongside databases of registered vehicles and wanted criminals. Now google has announced that they have plans to listen into your living room. They claim to have developed technology that will be able to audio record anything going on in the room your computer is in, so that they can hear the television to see what sort of shows you listen to and what ads you are already being exposed to. More and more corporations are putting RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips in their products. RFID chips are so small that you can't see them, but they are being put in clothing, beauty supplies, cereal boxes, EVERYTHING! Corporations want to trace the real time location of any consumer product ever manufactured, bought, sold, or stolen. The government is even considering putting them in money to prevent tax fraud, black markets, and to keep an electronic trail of EVERYTHING.

Governments are already using RFID. In London, weekly and monthly subway and train passes have chips in them that can trace and record their journey. I've heard that the New NYS Issued drivers-licenses are the same. We can't live without the government monitoring our every move, transaction, and thought.

By May 2008, all states have to issue "National ID" cards to citizens with some sort of biological proof on the cards (fingerprint, biometric data) that the name and picture on the card is who we say we are. Anyone without the card will not be permitted to board an airplane, Amtrak train, open a bank account, or enter a Federal building. Is this Nazi Germany? Airports are implements biometric face-scanning technologies that can scan lobby areas and waiting lines for terrorists. Sea World and some other entertainment parks have implemented biometric hand scans mandatory for all of its customers to enter the park.

The next step is microchipping everyone. No, I'm serious. A company called Applied Digital Solutions has created implant able microchips for humans. All over mainstream news, right after 9-11, they publicized a volunteer family who said they wanted to be microchipped because they feel safer. First it was pets, now Alzheimer’s patients, then prisoners (so we know where they are when they escape), next the entire population. No one will be able to buy or sell without the chip. The threat of immigrants taking away jobs, or terrorists being in the country is the excuse they are using for National ID cards, and they will use them for getting you to accept the microchip.

Hundreds of hospitals are already implanting the chip in people to have immediate access to emergency patients’ medical records. Even some club owners are using implantable microchips for their customers - to avoid need for checking IDs or paying in cash. Pretty soon, they will introduce them for supermarkets under the appeal you won't ever have to wait in line for groceries ever again. Police went to grocery stores and asked them to take part in a voluntary program to take customers fingerprints if they pay by check, with a shopper’s card, or credit/debit card. The Defense Department developed finger scanning devices for shoppers to use, and then transferred them to private companies to make it look like they aren't behind it.
Right now microchips are voluntary, but they could soon become mandatory if people don't wake up and fight back. All we need is maybe one or two more "terrorist" attacks orchestrated by our own government but blamed on a foreign "enemy" and people will fall for it. Orwell would be having ceizures in his grave if he were alive today and knew the direction we are headed.

For more info, go to google video or Youtube and search for "Microchip" "National ID Cards and RFID Chips" "The Cashless Society" and see and The most powerful movie about this is called America: Freedom to Fascism which you can watch online for free at google video and you can purchase a copy HERE.

Acne And Accutane: Bad Decision

"Acne is a terrible problem. I know this first-hand as I suffered with it for over 20 years. It wasn't until I studied natural medicine carefully that I realized there is a virtual surefire solution for acne that does not involve any medications at all."
- Dr. Mercola

When I was in high school, I had pretty bad acne. I was joyous when my mom thought it was worth going to the Dermatologist to treat it. I took whatever drug was prescribed. We tried one thing, then the next, and eventually I went on Accutane. I now look back, and realize that I wish someone would have intervened and given me another solution. When I was that young, I thought I was educated and up to date with most issues in the world. However, no one in the progressive political arena was talking about how to take care of oneself. I was unaware prescription or over the counter drugs were made by big, bad corporations, or that they were toxic chemicals and potentially deadly, just like the environmental toxins I became an activist over. I never knew these drugs cause cancer and other diseases just like the toxins in the drinking water I was so concerned about.

From being an environmentalist I discovered vegetarianism. That directed me toward animal welfare and the concept of animal rights. Eventually I learned about animal testing. As groups like People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and others would criticize animal tests for household products or cosmetics, they did not discuss or criticize the topic of pharmaceutical testing of drugs on animals.

Through some more radical groups, I learned that these companies were not doing a public service to help society. They were researching drugs that they could make the most money off of instead of ones that would help the most amounts of people. They were making drugs for a few cents a pill and charging hundreds of dollars for them. They were denying apparently “life-saving” medications to those in the third-world who needed it – due to patent disputes. They were delaying the introduction of new AIDS medications until the stocks of the old, less effective ones, were sold. They were not only using millions of animals in experiments, but those experiments were not carried out properly. Scientific procedure and protocol were broke regularly, and approved by management. I learned that data is often falsified to try to get results that will help market the drugs.

These companies were also committing some of the worst human rights abuses I could imagine. Bayer was caught selling HIV-infected drugs to foreign countries, Pfizer was caught doing clinical studies for their experimental drugs on Africans without their knowledge, and GlaxoSmithKline was testing their experimental AIDS drugs on not only guinea pigs and primates, but human babies in New York City’s orphanages. There is a Hollywood movie called The Constant Gardener about the Pfizer debocacle you can get at the public library or Blockbuster. There is a romantic comedy directed by an ex-pharmaceutical sales rep to try to alert the public of the deceptive marketing practices involved in pharmaceutical companies, called Side Effects. It’s because of them putting profits before patient safety that doctors were lied to and told by reps that Vioxx was more effective than other painkillers on the market. It wasn’t. It also was a lot more dangerous and 100,000 Americans are now dead due to its use.
The combined track record of all these practices compelled me to forgo an Advil when I had a headache, and left me completely open and in search of a way that it could be possible to completely boycott pharmaceutical companies and never have to give them a dime of my hard earned money for the rest of my life. At first I didn’t think it was possible. I saw an infomercial on TV once that really changed my life. I bought the book, read it front to back in two days and have been researching information, products, and websites from the book ever since. There is a lot of information out there every day, my research is continuously ongoing.

Six years after my acne, I now have obtained more knowledge about how the body heals itself, what causes disease, and how to prevent sickness than I ever knew about environmentalism, animal welfare, or any other issue that has ever concerned me. Yet there is so much to know. I at least have honest trustful resources at my disposal to check and that I can rely upon to give me information that I need. My friends and family on occasion get sick or have a condition and ask me “I need the natural cures for _.” So I look it up for them. I was recently told by my ex-girlfriend that her sister is on the acne drug Accutane. Because she is female, they also have to put her on birth control because Accutane would cause a severely deformed baby if pregnancy occurred. During my hours of research I came to the realization that a health problem that I am now suffering with is most likely a direct result of my prescription with Accutane.

There is a lot of information I can tell you about on how bad Accutane is, or the corruption involved in getting Accutane on the market, in fact nothing would please me more than to write a book about it. But for the sake of time, I won't. You should also know that birth control pills are also terrible for you - just think about how unnatural it is! Read href=""> to read about birth control drugs and alternatives. Maybe I’ll write another article on it. For now, I’ll focus on my arch nemesis: Accutane. By the time you’re done, my hope is that you will believe it is terrible and you should throw out the pills right now and never get another prescription. I know I am not a doctor; but neither are you – probably. Doctors used to promote cigarettes so your excuse for not taking what I say with accuracy is silly. You can go to any Naturopathic Physician and they will back up what I am saying here. ND’s actually go through the equivalent of conventional medical school, then “unlearned” in a sense, and are taught why toxic drugs and cutting open people is not the best way to help people. They are taught all the alternatives and then some. They are taught up to date information that is just coming out now – new paradigm’s for how we look at nutrition, prevention, and holistic medicine. So, my point is that ND’s get more schooling than MD’s and they will back up what I am saying.

Here is what you need to know about Accutane. Accutane is an antibiotic. What antibiotics do is kill bacteria. In doing this, they do not discriminate. This means they also kill beneficial bacteria like the critical kind that lives in your gut. These “good” bacteria help you digest food properly, help your body absorb and make the most of the nutrients in the food you eat, and they provide other vital functions for health maintenance. If you have an unhealthy gut, symptoms will spur up all over the body and you will undoubtedly have an unhealthy body. Taking antibiotics, especially long term, will lead to digestive problems. Here’s where I come in – since taking Accutane, I have developed the worst digestive problems that has caused me lots of money, embarrassment, and inconvenience.

In addition, antibiotic use may also cause yeast overgrowth and candidiasis. Scientists who have alternative theories on the cause of AIDS even claim that long-term antibiotic use causes autoimmune deficiency (AIDS), because antibiotics are immune-suppressant. Accutane increases suicide risk and shuts down frontal brain activity. Accutane increases risk for inflammatory bowel disease - a digestive problem - big surprise!

I took Accutane for at least an entire year, maybe two. I am convinced it was because of Accutane that I now developed all my digestive problems. I have been tested by a clinical laboratory for these problems and have found out the following. I am allergic to soy, peanuts, mustard, almonds, corn, cashews, cantaloupe, the herb astragalus, peas, and a couple others. Being vegan and being allergic to soy and the two main nuts has really been an inconvenience. I have really bad flatulence when I eat these foods and my breath smells terrible all the time (the smell comes from the gut). I have an overgrowth of bad intestinal bacteria and I have spent hundreds of dollars on probiotic supplements to try to counteract the years of taking antibiotics. I would like to take this time to thank Roche (the manufacturers of Accutane), as well as my mom, the dermatologist, and the drug reps who push their drugs on doctors. Thank you for making me have really bad gas every time I have tofu “chicken” or peanut butter sandwiches. I’d also like to take the time to criticize groups who are against cosmetic animal testing but not pharmaceuticals. Because of you, I remained ignorant of alternatives to drugs like Accutane throughout my adolescent years. Thank you to anyone in the progressive arena who did not think that health and wellness is an important social justice issue. Yes, I am being sarcastic.
The manufacturers of Accutane, Roche, are being sued in hundreds of class-action suits for their drug increasing suicide risk. Just do a goodsearch for "Accutane lawsuits" yourself! This company was also fined a record $500 million for their Trust violations - the largest fine for a corporation in history! And this was even a settlement!

Roche, like all pharmaceutical companies also torture and kill bunnies, puppies, and marmoset monkeys in experiments. You trust a company like this to treat your acne in the best way possible? They do not care about you or your health; they want you to take a pill every day for as long as possible so they make money off of you every day. That is their one sole legal obligation [see the movie The Corporation which explains corporations’ legal rights]. In fact, drugs like Accutane or antidepressants prescribed to teens are both great for them because they really want to get you hooked while your young. Then, when the toxins in those drugs build up in your system over time, you’ll get some other health condition that will lead to you being prescribed more and more drugs. It’s a snowball effect.

Taking an antibiotic long-term to treat acne may work over time, but it is surely not treating the cause. And the side-effects? Just look at what it says on the package! Look at the animal tests! Look how many animals died on cancer in the studies. It has warnings that it causes birth defects in humans which is why they make you go on birth control as well! Do you think that is good for you to swallow two chemical pills every day? The toxic buildup from the synthetically manufactured drug will harm your liver over time and some of your other organs - forcing you to go on more prescription drugs soon in life. By the time your fifty you'll be on a few dozen drugs every day. It is a snowball effect and you’re rolling down the hill towards toxic oblivion and you won't be able to slow down until you hit a tree. But you can grab hold of the ski lift and fly across the mountain to good health and avoid hitting any trees...only if you choose. The earlier you make this life-transforming decision, the happier and healthier you will be and the less money you will spend on medical bills or supplements. In China, doctors get paid only when their patients are healthy. They have true health-care. In America, we have a sick-care industry.

Here are what I found are the natural cures for Acne. If possible, find a licensed naturopathic practicioner in your area and go see them. They are trained in the field and can take your biological individualism into account when assessing getting to the route cause of your acne.

But, here are some of my recommendations; in order of what I think would be most useful. Try to do as many of these as possible because the cause is probably a multitude of factors of not living a healthy physical, emotional, and spiritual lifestyle.

Natural Cures for Acne:

1. Start consuming essential fatty acids (EFA's) daily; since acne may very well be a symptom of an omega-3 fatty acid deficiency. Acne is caused by inflammation and Omega 3's are an inflammation-fighting food. EFA's are available in fish, but so are heavy metals like mercury that can build up in women's bodies over time, leading to brain damage and autism in their children. A safer bet is to consume flax oil - a possible miracle cure for breast cancer by the way - you can get a bottle in the health food store refrigerated section, or buy flax oil supplements online or in the vitamin section of any grocery store (but be careful for sketchy fillers). I use flax oil on my oatmeal, cold cereal, as salad dressing, or conceivable in just about any dish you make or prepare. It has a creamy nutty flavor and can be spooned or put in any beverage (soymilk, juice). You can not heat flax oil but can put it on hot foods. Take 1-2 Tablespoons every day, or more those with serious omega 3 deficiencies. Another cheaper, yet less absorbable source of daily omega 3's is flaxseeds - but they have to be ground otherwise they just pass right through you. You can add ground flaxseeds to anything. Yes, anything! Just sprinkle a tablespoon on top of every meal you eat - its only two dollars for a pound of this stuff. This is probably the cheapest way to get your daily omega 3's, but especially since you are deficient, I would highly suggest investing in some flax oil and building up your stores of EFA's. Also, consider supplementing with DHA, an omega 3 fatty acid found in marine algae that fish eat, and usually only found in fish. Go to one of the online vegan shopping stores ( to find them. DHA helps build brain and eye tissue as well. It is not necessary to take this forever - but is a very smart idea to buy a bottle of this and use it up so at least you will restore your levels to healthy normal levels. Unfortunately if this is the cause of your acne, it will take a while to cure because it takes time for your EFA levels to go back to normal. It could take up to a year which is why everyone should make sure they are getting proper nutrition and enough EFA’s even if they have no health symptoms (like acne) yet.

2. Dr. Mercola says that key to controlling acne is to optimize your insulin levels. Eliminate sugars and high-glycemic grains (potatoes, white rice, white bread, white pasta, chips, white flour waffles/pancakes) from your diet in place of whole grains and natural sweeteners. Agave Nectar is a low glycemic sweetener that has the same consistency as maple syrup/honey and is good to use for baking or adding a little sweetness to your whole grain oatmeal or quinoa, for example. Avoid all sugar, high fructose corn syrup, sucrose, etc. Do NOT replace sugar with artificial sweeteners like in diet drinks (aspartame, NutraSweet, sucralose, Splenda, etc). Do not drink pasteurized fruit juices - they are high glycemic too! Eat the whole fruit! Drink filtered water (preferably Pi “living” water)! No soda either! Drink water, drink herbal tea. Watch out for soymilks too - all processed drinks are sweetened with some type of sugar. Even if it’s organic sugar or natural "cane sugar" it is still sugar and has the same affect on your insulin levels! Read the ingredients of everything you eat for a month or two until you are familiar with products!
Note: Even organic and whole wheat grains may trigger acne. Try eating a lot less grains and see if your acne gets better. Keep a journal/log to keep track. Consider trying a no grain diet for a month to see if that helps. Dr. Mercola is famous for a book entitled The No Grain Diet; check out this article on his website: "No Grain Diet Cures up Acne" -

3. Certain food allergies could cause acne. Use rotation diet by eliminating common allergic foods from your diet for a month and see if your acne clears up significantly. Then start reintroducing foods back one at a time. Keep a journal of how bad your acne is and everything you eat. Common food allergens are dairy, wheat, and soy.

4. Stress worsens every disease. It is great to have a good tool to deal with stress when you encounter it. You can not control all the stresses in your life, but you can control the ways you deal with stress. Yoga, meditation, getting good quality sleep (, or using an acupressure technique called Emotional Freedom Techniques (or EFT), which is best taught in person by someone training in it (me). Or you can train yourself by downloading a free manual and order some DVDs to teach you the basics.
This is the basics. There are some other essential oils, herbal teas, and such that may help with all this. There are a few different sites giving all the known natural remedies or cures out there – one of them is the other is It could not hurt to do some of the other things listed on these sites.

The politricks involved with Accutane and the scummy manufacturer:

● Accutane is Roche’s number one selling product, with an estimated 5 million Americans using the acne medication since 1982.
● Accutane has been linked to at least 240 suicides
● The FDA concluded Roche had not acted in good faith when relating information regarding Accutane use in pregnant women. Roche knew about Accutane side effects while failing to fully disclose the dangers to the FDA, physicians, and patients.
● Accutane causes severe birth defects and even fetal death and the FDA concluded Roche did not adequately communicate the dangers to women using Accutane.
● Roche knew about the birth defects that could occur with Accutane and pregnant women years before ever getting the 1982 FDA approval. Despite this knowledge, the FDA and Roche SMART program aimed at preventing fetal death and birth defects in women using Accutane was not implemented until 2000. The SMART program was developed only after a 1998 FDA memo recommended “active consideration of removal of Accutane from the market.”
● Now Accutane is also linked to an increased occurrence of inflammatory bowel disease and lupus
● Roche disregarded its internal doctor's recommendation that users of the drug are monitored for signs of depression and that a warning indicating this is added to the label because “such Accutane warnings could cost the firm sales or prompt lawsuits.”
● Roche's global head of drug safety, Martin Huber, testified in a pretrial deposition for a Florida case that the firm's internal analysis showed Accutane “probably caused” depression and other psychiatric illnesses in some patients, according to the court file summary of his deposition.
According to the summary of Zabrowski's deposition testimony, Schifferdecker wrote a report recommending changes in Accutane's U.S. label and core data sheet, the internal company document used by Roche to ensure consistency of the firm's products worldwide.
● Legal summaries of depositions by Roche's global head of drug regulatory affairs, Daniel Zabrowski, as well as other Roche officials, show that a company doctor, Peter Schifferdecker, who studied the drug’s links to depression at the Corporate headquarter is Switzerland in 1997, recommended Accutane's U.S. label warn users “should be supervised for signs of depression during therapy and, if necessary, referred for appropriate treatment.”
● Zabrowski testified Roche's marketing division was worried the monitoring warning on Accutane's U.S. label could hurt sales. Medical consultants in the marketing department revised Schifferdecker's report to remove the reference to monitoring, which was then sent to the FDA for approval
● Currently, Roche is the target of about 70 lawsuits for allegations of adverse reactions because of Accutane. Plaintiffs claim Accutane adverse effects include suicides, depression, birth defects and gastrointestinal injuries.
● Around 90% of all Accutane patients are considered to have mild acne and should have been using an alternate treatment.
● Roche was issued a warning letter after the FDA found the Accutane promotional advertisements to contain “false and misleading” information.
● At the December 11, 2002 House Oversight and Investigation Subcommittee Hearing on Safety Issues Relating to Accutane, Congressman Peter Deutsch told Roche North American president and CEO, George Abercrombie that, “what you just said is not a truthful statement” when he claimed the company did try to make consumers aware that Accutane is specifically intended to treat severe acne.

This just shows how corrupt the government (FDA) really is and how they are not here to protect your health. And what a poor job our current elected leaders do at protecting the public they serve. There are a few great films that will be screened this semester about drug safety and Big Pharma corruption, keep your eyes peeled for neon flyers and go check them out. I would love to hear any comments, particularly if any of this has touched you. To contact me, email: veganmatty (at) ,

Pi Water is Amazing

This is a picture of two hyacinths which were planted at the same time. The one on the right was watered with pi water and the one on the left was watered with tap water. As you can see the hyacinth watered with pi water not only grew much taller in the same amount of time but it is also truly flourishing with luxuriant foliage.

More Amazingly Impressive Info on Pi Water


What is it?

It is energy water. It is something alive. Essentially, it is a vibrational remedy, imprinted with subtle energy patterns.

Pi-water was discovered through the study of botanical physiology. It was originally thought a hormone was responsible for causing plants to bud. Dr. Yamashita was conducting research, attempting to isolate this hormone, when he discovered that what was causing the flower to bud was not a hormone at all but a very minute amount of ferric ferrous salt. In 1964, Dr. Yamashita, an agricultural scholar furthered his research and found that this substance had other highly beneficial qualities.

Inducing this ferric ferrous salt into a high-energy state and infusing it through a ceramic filter process creates pi-water. A pi particle is a quantum particle smaller than an electron, neutron and proton. The pi meson causes the protons and neutrons to exchange energy states with one another, which create energy and electrical charges of it’s own. The amount of ferric ferrous (bivalent and trivalent ferrite) is minute, a quantum particle – essentially such a trace amount that it is only the energetic signature of the substance which remains. (2x 10-12 mol.) (Homeopathy also utilizes the trace signature of the substance. It is theorized that these quantum particles are conductors and are responsible for carrying information and cellular “memories” (previously encoded information) such as natural bioenergetic and healing processes.

At an International Symposium on Preventative Oncology held in France in 1998, the

Discussants were very excited about the extraordinary benefits of pi-water. The following was reported.

- It is the closest water to human body water

- It possesses high anti-oxidation properties because of it’s ability to eliminate free radicals

- It provides bio-energy, for example there was an experiment where goldfish were able to live for up to 216 days in a sealed container living off the energy in the water. Under normal circumstances a goldfish would die after about 3 to 5 days in a container sealed in regular water.

- It increases the body’s amount of natural killer cells

- It enhances anti-body activities

- It improves the self-healing activity of body cells – waking up cellular “memories” of health

- It carries more oxygen throughout the body, creating an oxygen rich environment which destroys anaerobic organisms (cancer is anaerobic)

- It creates minute water clusters which improves the functions of cells and the detoxifying effects of water

- It improves cellular adaptation to stress and stressful environments

- It neutralizes the pH of water, bringing it to just above 7 which is very close to the pH of the body ( few filtration systems manage water pH, as well as magnetic forces , far-infrared wave and pi infusion)

- It enhances the transmission of information throughout the body

Given the qualities of pi-water, one can begin to appreciate its many uses. At this point most of the literature on pi-water comes from Asian sources. There they have had over 30 years of experience.

Agriculturally, pi-water has been used for cultivating crops without chemicals and for producing larger vegetables. Experiments were done with spinach plants, which are difficult to recultivate. With pi-water, 25 consecutive were achieved. Comparisons can be made between two identical seedlings/bulbs. The one watered with pi-water as opposed to regular water demonstrates improved health, lowered disease and higher growth rates.

Livestock and Animals, have responded with improved meat quality, a decreased level of anaerobic fermentation, an increase in egg production, an improved taste, and lethargic animals became more active playful and interested in their surroundings.

Industrial use has shown that oxidation or rusting was greatly reduced.

Health and Home uses were varied.

Dr. Takafumi Tsurumi has collected a series of clinical anecdotes and studies with some astounding results

-Stomach cancer eradication decrease of brain tumor, improvement in leukemia

-Dermatitis improvement, improvement with alopecia

-Improvement in diabetes

-Improved liver function after hepatitis

-Lowered blood pressure and improvement in cardiac output

-Rapid recovery from stroke

-Relief of headaches, stiff joints, constipation

-Improved overall health

-Improved immunity (intake of pi-water should be increased in the early stages of. A cold, flu or virus

-AIDS virus reportedly does not seem to multiply in this high-energy environment.

Pi-water has been used to store tissue samples instead of placing them in a hormone solution. The structure of the tissues remained intact for over 30 years using this process.

In addition to the various medical uses, pi-water has been used in;

Cooking- soaking meats increases tenderness

Fewer spices were needed as the tastes of foods were intensified. . Cleaning fruits and vegetables with pi-water removes toxins and prolongs their freshness (many Japanese restaurants use pi-water filtration systems

Unripened bananas can be soaked for 30 minutes to sweeten their taste.
Gardening- Spraying plants with pi-water improves their colors, watering with pi- … water increases root growth and foliage. . Pi-water may also prove very useful in preserving our natural habitats.

Pets - Pets exhibit a higher energy level when drinking pi-water

It is also beneficial as an odor remover when simply sprayed by a spray

bottle or if the pet consumes the water.

Spraying their coat with the water will enhance shinier and cleaner fur.
Odor Removal
Spraying areas with pi-water will remove odor possibly making other


Cleaning - Improved hair cleanliness, as well as skin (pi-water filtration systems are

popularly found in many Japanese hair salons).

Laundry doesn’t yellow as easily.

Two books by Dr. Shinji Makino and Dr. Tsurumi look to be interesting. They focus on medical issues as well as going onto greater detail about the creation of this substance.

Solution: Pi-Mag Water Filtration System / Energy Water

Everyone should at least be drinking filtered water, preferably also water which is infused with magnetic energy from the earth, far-infrared light waves from the sun and pi energy from ‘space’. Water should also have organic minerals, such as coral calcium.

Systems with water softeners, which use sodium, may be troublesome as the increased sodium may be contributing to hypertension. Typically two parts sodium extracts one part magnesium from the water.

Roughly 2 million water filtration systems are purchased annually. Most of these have a form of carbon filter which does not address the lead deposits found in water.

85% of Americans are deficient in calcium. We need approximately 1000 mg. Per day. Calcium is important to cellular communication, nerve functioning, heart function, bone stability and development and blood clotting ability. A system, which removes everything in the water without restoring natural substances, is shortchanging you.

Water filtration systems should have at least a 0.4-micron pore filter size to adequately remove microorganisms.

We currently know of no other filtration system, which has magnetic fields, far-infrared waves, maximum filtration, pi energy and the reinstatement of necessary minerals.

Once you have this technology you should drink 64 oz. Per day, at least. Drink at least one glass at room temperature in the morning ½ hr. before eating, 11/2 hr. after eating and at bedtime. This helps to clear the colon, promotes regularity, strengthens the heart, oxygenates the brain, removes lipids and instills tranquility. If you are bottling water the magnetic charge will last for approx. 3 days providing you don’t rest it against a metallic surface. It can be refrigerated. This water can be used internally as well as externally for things like cleaning eyes, bathing wounds, healing burns, preventing blistering, healing various areas, rinsing hair for maximum cleanliness and therefor growth enhancing, etc.

Not all fluids count for water intake; in fact some actually have a strong diuretic effect. Sodas, coffee, alcohol, and teas have stimulants and dehydrate the system. The CNS stimulants liberate necessary energy from the ATP storage pool. People with Alzheimer’s and children with learning disabilities should avoid caffeine. Orange juice

Has high potassium which promotes histamine production. It should be monitored for people with asthma, allergies, congestion, etc.

If dyspepsia is present water can restore the mucosal structure; sometimes it can take as little as 10 minutes of sipping water to prevent a dyspeptic episode. Using antacids with aluminum may be contraindicated as it has been strongly implicated as a precipitating factor in Alzheimer’s, (aluminum sulfate is at times used in water purification for city water).

If you are suffering with any of the symptoms associated with water deficiency, properly hydrate yourself. In about 3 weeks you may notice a huge difference. Medications sometimes mask the symptoms of dehydration so be aware of this as well.

To assist with sleeping difficulties drink a glass of water and put a pinch of salt on the tongue, letting it dissolve naturally.

As stated earlier, practitioners who place an emphasis on this primary component of healing and preventative care should be applauded! They are instrumental in supporting the paradigm shift which focuses on simple solutions to deal with some major health care issues. Remember that in order to be 100% healthy you must be 100% clean on an internal level.

Bottled Water - Terrible for the Earth, Your Health, and Your Wallet!

There is a forum called Vital Votes on (linked to in the article) that most of you will never care to sign up for to check out. But someone posted on there said they know someone who works for pepsi - who make aquifina bottled water - and they RADIATE the water and its radioactive for 24 hours before they bottle it and the employees wear radiation suits. Really something to look into. Read about plastic leaching into the bottles, etc... scary stuff.

Why You Want to Avoid Bottled Water
Every liter of bottled water you buy may have taken 5 liters of water to produce, and likely caused the release of a quarter-kilogram of greenhouse gases.

Drinking pure water is easily one of the most important things you can do for your health, particularly when you drink it instead of sugary drinks like soda or juice. But relying on bottled water to do this is not the best answer.

Worldwide consumption of bottled water increased by nearly 60 percent to 41 billion gallons in 2004. We are on track toward consuming more than 50 billion gallons this year.

People pay premium prices for exotic bottled water brands like Fiji and Evian in the hopes that it is more pure than water from nearby sources. However, this puts a giant strain on both the environment and your pocketbook.

And bottled water is not an assurance of purity. In fact, up to 40 percent of bottled water is bottled tap water that may or may not have received additional treatment. On top of that, it may also be contaminated with the metal antimony.

So where can you find clean, affordable, environmentally friendly water supplies? Pi Water. Avoid drinking unfiltered tap water, as chlorine and fluoride, which are added to most municipal water supplies, are toxic chemicals that shouldn't be consumed in large quantities. And filtered water from your tap is still "dead" water - so talk to me and get some "living" Pi Water from Nikken. You can get systems for your house, but here is another option that replaces the need for bottled water:

Flouride Debate Getting Media Attention

Click here for an interesting three-minute video from a Tennessee TV station reviews the major problems of water fluoridation with a number of experts and residents. They're so concerned about fluoridation, they've asked Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) to remove it from their state's drinking water.

Sad News...Mandatory Vaccines

Texas Gov. orders anti-cancer vaccine

By LIZ AUSTIN PETERSON, Associated Press Writer Fri Feb 2, 5:42 PM ET

AUSTIN, Texas - Bypassing the Legislature altogether, Republican Gov. Rick Perry issued an order Friday making Texas the first state to require that schoolgirls get vaccinated against the sexually transmitted virus that causes cervical cancer.

By employing an executive order, Perry sidestepped opposition in the Legislature from conservatives and parents' rights groups who fear such a requirement would condone premarital sex and interfere with the way Texans raise their children.

Beginning in September 2008, girls entering the sixth grade — meaning, generally, girls ages 11 and 12 — will have to receive Gardasil, Merck & Co.'s new vaccine against strains of the human papillomavirus, or HPV.

Perry also directed state health authorities to make the vaccine available free to girls 9 to 18 who are uninsured or whose insurance does not cover vaccines. In addition, he ordered that Medicaid offer Gardasil to women ages 19 to 21.

Perry, a conservative Christian who opposes abortion and stem-cell research using embryonic cells, counts on the religious right for his political base. But he has said the cervical cancer vaccine is no different from the one that protects children against polio.

"The HPV vaccine provides us with an incredible opportunity to effectively target and prevent cervical cancer," Perry said.

Merck is bankrolling efforts to pass state laws across the country mandating Gardasil for girls as young as 11 or 12. It doubled its lobbying budget in Texas and has funneled money through Women in Government, an advocacy group made up of female state legislators around the country.

Perry has ties to Merck and Women in Government. One of the drug company's three lobbyists in Texas is Mike Toomey, Perry's former chief of staff. His current chief of staff's mother-in-law, Texas Republican state Rep. Dianne White Delisi, is a state director for Women in Government.

The governor also received $6,000 from Merck's political action committee during his re-election campaign.

The order is effective until Perry or a successor changes it, and the Legislature has no authority to repeal it, said Perry spokeswoman Krista Moody. Moody said the Texas Constitution permits the governor, as head of the executive branch, to order other members of the executive branch to adopt rules like this one.

Legislative aides said they are looking for ways around the order for parents who oppose it.

"He's circumventing the will of the people," said Dawn Richardson, president of Parents Requesting Open Vaccine Education, a citizens group that fought for the right to opt out of other vaccine requirements. "There are bills filed. There's no emergency except in the boardrooms of Merck, where this is failing to gain the support that they had expected."

Texas allows parents to opt out of inoculations by filing an affidavit objecting to the vaccine on religious or philosophical reasons. Even with such provisions, however, conservative groups say such requirements interfere with parents' rights to make medical decisions for their children.

The federal government approved Gardasil in June, and a government advisory panel has recommended that all girls get the shots at 11 and 12, before they are likely to be sexually active.

The New Jersey-based drug company could generate billions in sales if Gardasil — at $360 for the three-shot regimen — were made mandatory across the country. Most insurance companies now cover the vaccine, which has been shown to have no serious side effects.

Merck spokeswoman Janet Skidmore would not say how much the company is spending on lobbyists or how much it has donated to Women in Government. Susan Crosby, the group's president, also declined to specify how much the drug company gave.

A top official from Merck's vaccine division sits on Women in Government's business council, and many of the bills around the country have been introduced by members of Women in Government.

Largest Pork Processor to Phase Out Crates

Va.-Based Smithfield to End Practice of Keeping Pregnant Pigs in Small Cages

By Marc Kaufman

Friday, January 26, 2007; Page A06

The largest U.S. pork supplier, Virginia-based Smithfield Foods, said yesterday that it will require its producers to phase out the practice of keeping pregnant pigs in "gestation crates" -- metal and concrete cages that animal welfare advocates consider one of the most inhumane features of large-scale factory farming.

Activists hailed the decision as perhaps the most significant voluntary improvement ever made in animal welfare, but they said the stage had been set by the recent passage of two state initiatives that would ban the use of the crates.

Smithfield officials denied that pressure from activists or voters had anything to do with their announcement, but they did say the company was responding to concerns voiced by customers such as McDonald's and several supermarket chains.

While they defended the use of the crates -- which are so narrow that the animals cannot turn around and some have to lie uncomfortably on their chests -- they said their own research had concluded they could be replaced by group pens without any long-term problems or cost increases.

"Working with our customers, who have made their views known on the issue of gestation stalls, we are pleased to be taking this precedent-setting step," said C. Larry Pope, chief executive officer of Smithfield Foods. He said all 187 Smithfield-owned pig nurseries would be converted within 10 years, and contract growers will be eventually expected to move in that direction.

"I can't think of anything more important in terms of humane treatment of animals that has occurred in the agribusiness sector," said Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society of the United States. "They are the market leader, and this decision changes the dynamic of the industry. It's going to be very hard for other companies to not follow Smithfield."

The decision follows a pattern that has become increasingly common in the food industry. Groups concerned about issues such as animal welfare or the use of antibiotics or biotechnology in agriculture no longer look to government regulators to produce change, but rather take their concerns to the public, to producers, and to the restaurants and grocery chains that sell the products.

The Humane Society, Farm Sanctuary and others led successful public initiative campaigns in Arizona last year and in Florida in 2004 to prohibit use of the gestation cages.

McDonald's has been particularly active on the animal welfare issue, and it set an industry precedent several years ago by creating a panel of outside experts to recommend best practices. Some members of that panel identified gestation crates as a particularly inhumane practice, and McDonald's expressed interest in reducing or eliminating the amount of pork it buys from companies that rely on the crates. In a statement yesterday, McDonald's hailed the Smithfield decision, saying it was in line with advice it got from panel member Temple Grandin in particular, a leading animal welfare expert and author.

Female pigs selected for breeding in most large pig nurseries are artificially impregnated early in their lives and soon after placed in the crates for their four-month pregnancies. According to Grandin, productive sows will spend several years in the cages while giving birth to five to eight litters. But as the sows get larger over the years, some cannot fit in the cages and are either slaughtered or forced to live in conditions where they can sleep only on their chests, rather than their sides as they do normally.

Pork producers and many veterinarians argue that the animals do well separated in the crates and are prone to fighting if housed together in pens. But animal advocates say the pigs suffer greatly in the 2-by-7-foot cages, with many chewing on metal bars and endlessly waving their heads. Grandin said many sows in narrow crates show behaviors she considers abnormal -- a sign, she said, that they are suffering. The crates have been banned in Europe for some time.

In a statement, National Pork Producers Council CEO Neil Dierks said that while his group "respects the right of all producers to make market decisions they believe are in their best interest," the council considers gestation crates to be appropriate and humane.

"The American Veterinary Medical Association and other organizations recognize gestation stalls and group housing systems as appropriate for providing for the well-being of sows during pregnancy," he said. "We support the right of all producers to choose housing that ensures the well-being of their animals and that is appropriate for their operations."

Dennis Treacy, Smithfield's vice president for environmental and corporate affairs, said his company will phase out the gestation stalls over the next decade and will retrain staff in how to keep the animals from fighting.

He said that the policy shift was a business decision and that the company does not consider the crates inhumane. But, he said, "We've heard increasing questions from customers about whether sow crates are good or bad, whether they're the way to go in the future. Given our research, we decided to go another way."

my thoughts: its all because of people exposing the reality of factory farms and forcing the meat industry from loosing customers;
specifically, all the best press mcdonalds gets from vegans and all the broken windows they get as well they want to be seen as the ones in the industry that are leading the way for some of these welfare reforms so they arent a target anymore

Geneticist Sentenced for Molesting Girl

A world-renowned geneticist was sentenced Friday to 14 years in prison for molesting an employee's daughter who took martial arts classes at his home.

Many people, including a Nobel Prize winner, wrote letters in support of William French Anderson, Time magazine's runner-up for Man of the Year in 1995. But Judge Michael E. Pastor said he caused "incalculable" emotional damage to a victim he described as an insecure and trusting immigrant.

"Because of intellectual arrogance, he persisted and he got away with as much as he could," the judge said.

Anderson, 70, was convicted in July child molestation. He could have gotten 18 years behind bars.

Anderson has been called the "father of gene therapy" for his work on a promising but controversial experimental medical treatment that involves injecting healthy genes into sick patients.

He claimed to be the first person to successfully treat a patient with the therapy in 1990, though the claim has been disputed.

Prosecutors said Anderson molested the girl from 1997 to 2001, starting when she was 10.

Anderson watched intently as his victim, now 19, read a statement before he was sentenced.

"Roughly three years ago, I wanted to kill myself," she said. "I couldn't live with all the pain. ... He maliciously destroyed my world to fulfill his own sick pleasures."

The judge also ordered Anderson to pay her family about $52,000 in restitution for past therapy and cover the cost of any future treatment. He also imposed fines and fees of about $16,000.

Defense attorneys argued that Anderson was a friendly mentor to the girl and was being smeared by her mother, who wanted to assume Anderson's position as director of the Gene Therapies Laboratories at the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine.

My thoughts:

if he actually did it: just goes to show how anyone, especially scientists, are scumbags. they kill animals for "research", might as well molest 14 year olds for pleasure...

if he didn't: just goes to show how someone out to get you who has the power, can use "molestor" or "rapist" to destroy your life and character. no one will listen to your defense or side with you because they don't want to be sympathetic or siding with a child molestor...
