Fluoride. Poison intentionally placed in our water supply

Flouride is a known, and very dangerous poison.

But in many areas of the UK fluoride is intentionally added to our water supply. Indeed, if a local health organisation asks the local water company to add it, they are obliged to do so - even if people don't want it added. And this has now been confirmed in the courts (read the personal account of someone who fought the decision here).

One study has found that fluoride can damage the brain, and that children are particularly vulnerable.

But we add the poison directly to our water supply in order, it is said, to safeguard their teeth. For a similar reason, we are encouraged to clean our teeth with fluoride toothpaste.

The National Pure Water Association is campaigning to change current UK policy, and if you would like to support them in their effort to prevent this intentional poisoning of the population, visit this website.

Forced medication is something that the ConMed Establishment is keen on. It is currently rife in the USA, and there are murmurings in the UK that because Big Pharma drugs are 'so good for us' (sic), we should be forced to take them.

I ask the question. What sort of medical system is it that has to force people to take their medicine? Especially when that 'medicine' is given to us - free of charge!

Homeopathy better than placebo

Homeopathy denialists are keen to say 'there is no evidence' that homeopathy is any better than 'placebo'. They have too! They work for, and they are paid by Big Pharma; and they have to protect pharmaceutical drugs from the growing competition from homeopathy, and other natural, drug-free therapies.

There is already plenty of 'clinical evidence', as denialists call it, to say they are wrong. But here is another one to consider.

This study, for instance, concluded that benefits of homeopathy to cancer patient were 'clinically relevant and statistically significant'. The researchers found that homeopathy has a dramatic effect on the quality of life of 259 cancer sufferers, who were being treated with chemotherapy.

The benefits of homeopathy to this group was compared with 380 other cancer patients who were not given homeopathy. As WDDTY said:

          "Most given a remedy found their fatigue improved, although their anxiety and depression levels – the ones usually associated with the placebo effect – did not alter over a three-month period.  Improvements to fatigue levels continued to improve over a 12-month period.  The researchers from Albert Ludwig’s University Freiburg in Germany said they tried to match the patients as closely as possible, so that there were similar health profiles in the homeopathic and non-homeopathic groups."
BMC Cancer, 2011; 11;19; doi: 10:1186/1471-2407-11-19).

Homeopathy denialists will shortly be writing saying that this research was flawed. Or they will just ignore it, and continue to say "There is not evidence" - in the hope that most people won't read about it.

Well, they would say that, wouldn't they!

Homeopathy Research

On 17th May 2011, MP David Tredinnick sponsored a reception at the House of Commons for the Homeopathy Research Institute. The event focused on placing homeopathy research on the national agenda, as a important and necessary field of scientific enquiry. The event was attended by over 150 guests, including MPs, Peers, academics, representatives of the homeopathic profession, as well as conventional healthcare providers from the NHS.

The HRI were launching a fundraising appeal for £2 million by 2013, which will be dedicated to funding key scientific research into homeopathy.

This is an important development. Homeopathy has been an effective and safe form of medical therapy for over 200 years, and the research will not only prove that, but also help point towards understanding more about the working mechanism.

When ConMed is threatened...

“When a fact appears that threatens orthodox medical practice,
the power groups go into action. They pounce on the poor
pitiable ‘heresy’ and suppress it, if at all possible.
If it cannot be suppressed, it is explained away.
If it cannot be explained away, it is denied.
If it cannot be denied, it is buried.”
Alexis Carrel, French Surgeon, 1873 – 1944

And so it has always been with homeopathy!

The Sham of Conventional Medical Science

The sham of medical science is again revealed in this study, reported by What Doctors Don't Tell You.

It needs little commentary. Medical science is supposed to tell us that Big Pharma drugs are effective and safe, and that is what most people think it does.

But what this study, reported in 'the Archives of Internal Medicine' reveals the following:

          "Up to 80 per cent of ‘scientific’ papers that research the effectiveness and safety of a drug are nothing but marketing pieces, designed to drum up sales – and a new example has come to light this week. A study on the epilepsy drug Neurontin (gabapentin) was a ‘seeding trial’ – it was marketing dressed up as science.

Why medical science does not protect us
