Dangerous Ideas

Ideas can be considered radical, even subversive; and, can defiantly challenge current and established beliefs, faiths, and ideologies. They dare to be different in the face of sameness and conformity. They can defy logic and common sense, while offering an alternative reality, another viewpoint, a counter-point of view. This makes any ‘idea’, potentially a dangerous thing, depending...on your point of view.

Can we separate the ‘idea’ from the viewer, the originator, or, the implementer of the idea? Are some ‘ideas’ so dangerous, that they shouldn’t be considered, mentioned, or even shared? Do we even dare pose these kinds of heretical questions?

The history of ideas have been fraught with both conflict and bloodshed. Truly, it has been ‘ideas’ and not ‘battles’ though, that have marked the forward progress of our Civilization. Historically speaking, we as a Civilization, have certainly moved above and beyond the barbarism of which we think conceived us.

Yet, strangely and sadly, we still kill for sport, honor, family pride, racial purity, fear, respect, revenge, and retaliation; and let’s not forget as a not so friendly ‘reminder’ to the rest, as to ‘whose really in charge around here’. Imagine that, some people, still actually continue to use force and control to push their ideas on the rest of Humanity. Why?

Forget ‘bad and evil’ and ‘greedy and power hungry’ as reasons why some people need to use ‘power of force’, instead of the power of ‘love and cooperation’ to accomplish their ‘shameful and selfish’ goals of ‘conquest and domination’. Plain and simple, these people are all insane! And, that’s the reason, the truth behind the deaths and violence, and the injustices' anywhere within our world.

Insane people still have some measure of control; and, we just let them stay in control. How? Simply, by our inaction's; including our inability to see and observe what is really going on in our World. We are too distracted and drained of our energies, by the stresses and strains of our present existence to realize that we can, and do, have an impact on our World.

In fact, anytime two or more courageous and like minded people get together and realize that Life is more precious and deserving than anything else, and should be protected and preserved at all costs; we create hope for a better world. Do you now begin to understand the power of an ‘idea’, especially one, whose time has come?

Protect and preserve Life above all else. Is this a radical or subversive idea? I put this ‘idea’ then, this simple truth to the test. I challenge all religions, dogmas, ideologies, philosophies, and any and all other ideas put forward by Humanity, past or present. Let’s see if it fits into the equation called: LIFE. Let’s test the value of this idea in terms of its logic and sanity as well as survival potential?

To me it makes perfect simple sense; it requires no figuring, or explanation; its self-evident and primal, survival! Yet…some people still need to kill and dominate with force. This is not Life; this is not Survival. Death is that; Death! IT'S FINAL! Domination and Control is not Life; or, a way of Living Freely!

No excuses, no exceptions, and no rationalizing the rule: Protect and preserve Life above all else. Maintaining that purity of truth will keep us alive, to see our children, and their children benefit from our integrity of mind and expression. We must keep this truth alive moment to moment with every encounter within our environment.

Reasonably enough, when you ‘protect and preserve’ anything or anyone, you respect them first. Life is a miracle beyond our scientific measure; it deserves respect and admiration for its present existence and survival potential. We are all here together, and we are all inter-connected and inter-dependent; whether we choose to admit it or not. This is another fact of our mutual co-existence!

Only we can alter the course for the ‘better or worse’ for Life on this planet. We cannot blame anything else for our collective or independent choices and their effects. We decide what is right or wrong for our mutual existence. We decide that Life should go on. We can do it together, and we take a stand!

We can collectively create a better world!

Radical? Subversive? Dangerous? You can take your pick. One fact is clear, ‘protecting and preserving Life’, can also get you killed!

The question is: Are you willing to die for it?

Now, how radical is that?

Cheerios, a Drug?

Cheerios, a drug? That is, according to a recent posting by the FDA on their website. I've always known it to be drug addicting as in 'sugar cravings.' Now, I find out that it can also lower my cholesterol, treat a severe and debilitating disease-hypercholesterolemia, and all the while preventing and or treating any coronary heart disease that I may have. Well, 'shiver me timbers,' Captain Crunch. Excuse me, while I tear down to my local sugar-market and buy me up a case of Cheerios. I can already hear the marketing jingle... "Sugary sweet, a tasty treat. Good for your health, now good for your heart".

Unfortunately, General Mills, the manufacturer, committed a no-no. They promoted their cereal as healthy food, while making health claims, and even citing health studies. According to the FDA's strict definition, only drugs can make that kind of health claims. The FDA is very clear, and in a tersely worded letter to General Mills, they make it very clear. They have two choices: They can apply to make their cereal a drug; or, change the claims they make on the box. They must immediately decide to do one or the other.

Poor General Mills, they are only the latest victim, in a long line of targeted victims, demonstrating the kind of control the FDA hopes to have over the health care system in the United States. Mostly, up until now, the FDA has targeted small health business-type operations that simply offer health-related products and or services. I'll just cite one example to wet your appetite for the type of power the FDA hopes to maintain over their already taxed and financially fragile health care system. I would prefer to call it what it truly is... nothing short of health care tyranny.

According to natural health advocate Mike Adams, of, the FDA is going crazy. “On October 17, 2005, the FDA sent warning letters to 29 companies that market cherries. In these letters, the FDA threatened these companies with legal action and told them they had to remove the scientific information on their websites that described the health benefits of the natural medicines found in cherries, such as the anthocyanins that reduce inflammation for arthritis sufferers. According to the warped FDA logic that now seems to be standard, when cherry growers post scientific information about the health benefits of their cherries, they magically transform their cherries into drugs and therefore, as drugs, they must have FDA approval to sell them in the United States.” Read about it here for yourself:

The good news in all of this-power-control-and-tyranny, is that you can simply go down to your local organic supermarket, or organic food co-op, and buy yourself the best medicine nature can provide real medicine, your body truly needs and truly craves. The FDA hasn't censored the purchasing and consumption of organically grown products...yet! And, I can also guarantee with 100% certainty, that you won't find any true health inside any commercial box of cereal, no matter what their stated claims. Sugar is still sugar. It is still unhealthy, no matter what another form their 'distracting' claims may take.

Living in a Drug World: Compromising Humanity For Profits

Drugs have become a silent and unspoken epidemic in our society. These harmful substances tragically and unalterably affect millions of human lives. More people are becoming addicted than ever before; and, not just to street drugs. The solution to a ‘drug society’ should be less than more drugs. Yet, the ‘Pharma’ solution to 'whatever ails ya,’ is a drug of one kind or another. Every human problem and condition has a chemical solution according to the Psychiatric and Pharmaceutical Industries. They should know.... because they manufacture enough of them.

I am totally certain, based on my experience and observation, that you can cure any addiction to any harmful drug substance, by complete natural and healthy means, and totally without any other drug substitutes. The final product being: a ‘drug-free’ healthy individual with a renewed zest for life and living. This is not the end product Pharma hopes for; so, it does not promote this alternative. Because without drugs there are no profits! So instead, 'drug substitutes' for drug addictions are sold to society as a solution to deviant and disorderly-drugged behavior. They call it euphemistically, ‘Harm Reduction.’

The corner stone of our existence is our health and vitality; and without these, we are doomed to sickness and death. Public health shouldn’t just protect, prevent and maintain risks to our health; it should also be willing to eliminate the source of poor health, vigorously, and by any means necessary.

In my world, I would start from this basic and healthy premise-that drugs, any drugs, are not the ideal solution to the health and wellness of a human being. Unfortunately, our Government and our public health agencies are being used, compromised, misdirected, and masterfully manipulated by the Pharmaceutical Industries. They alone profit from a drugged dependence; and, they alone profit from sickness and poor health.

We can easily see that drugs kill. Pharmaceutical drugs alone kill well over 100,000 people every single year in North America, and that’s just taking them as prescribed. According to court documents and congressional hearings during the 2004 session, one drug alone, Vioxx, out of their pharmacopeia of over 10,000 registered and marketable medications, has been directly linked possibly to over 60,000 deaths; and millions injured, in just a five year period in the United States alone. Merck, its manufacturer, just settled this case out of court for a paltry 4.85 billion dollars.

Vioxx was their biggest seller; for five years from 1999 onwards it dominated the industry by sheer numbers alone. It made them billions of dollars a year. The big bonus for Merck in all of this is that they still get to walk away; even after all that damage and death, and go on to conduct ‘business as usual.’ Who knows for certain when or where the next “Vioxx” will appear?

Please keep in mind, this is one example of one drug. Believe me when I say to you with complete sincerity and honesty, that this is just the tip of the iceberg.


It’s a simple enough equation that the Pharmaceutical Industry follows to the letter; even if they tend to fudge, and then hide their false and contrived ‘patent pending’ drug studies. These are all necessary mechanizations to enable them to receive FDA approval. And, because of their rather intimate, and for lack of a better word, 'incestuous' relationship, both the FDA and the Pharmaceutical Industry, have actually conspired and colluded to commit fraud on the American people, by way of pushed through and unsubstantiated drug studies; even, after these same studies showed the potential toxic effects of a particular drug under review.

There is no profit in good health, only in sickness. This is at the core of any Pharma philosophy, ‘the sicker they are, the more drugs they will need’. Unfortunately, the drug business is rather fickle. Inadvertently, profits come at the cost of human lives. The Pharmaceutical’s own journal the ‘J Am Pharm. Assoc.’ 2001; 41:192-9, referenced a University of Arizona study, that concluded, "that the overall cost of US drug-related morbidity and mortality exceeded $177.4 billion in the year 2000, with over 200,000 deaths created annually".

Now, that’s a lot of ‘death and dying’ from a small, simple little pill....'for whatever ails ya.’

Kraft cheese and your children's health

What makes you think that a huge conglomerate like Kraft Foods actually cares about your children's nutrition? Would the fact that Philip Morris used to own Kraft Foods have anything to do with your answer to this question.

They care about as much for their products and their client base, as do the manufacturers of some of the leading meal replacement drinks on the market today. Case in point, Ensure, by Abbott Labs. 30 billion dollar a year Pharma or food companies have a bad habit of poor nutrition and even poorer promises of good nutrition within their so-called 'foods.'

Think again America, you're eating garbage, synthesized products of the dairy industry, which technically and legally can't even be called milk. Milk Protein Concentrate (MPC) is widely used in the making of so-called cheese products, principally by Kraft, the nation's largest cheese manufacturer.

According to Kraft-Cheese-Adulterated.htm , "The general definition of MPC is a blend of dry dairy ingredients from 42% to 90% casein (pure dairy protein). The World Trade Organization (WTO) has two Harmonized Trade Schedule (HTS) numbers to designate MPC - 04049 and 3501".

The "HTS 04049 is made by ultra filtering skim milk, retaining anything the size of a protein or larger (bacteria, somatic cell, etc.) and then drying that to form a powder. With HTS 3501 proteins obtained in other ways can be added (i.e., casein). Neither of these two products is considered milk by the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) definitions." Furthermore, "MPCs are cheaper than domestic forms of dairy proteins (farm milk, nonfat dry milk, etc.)."

"Not manufactured in the U.S. MPC's are added to cheese vats - on the cheap yielding more end products with `savings' retained by the manufacturer," according to John Bunting, a Delaware County, New York dairy farmer. Traditionally, half of all U.S. milk is destined to go into cheese production".

Also within this same article, Peter Hardin, editor and publisher of the authoritative monthly The Milkweed, who along with Bunting has done much of the investigation of MPC use in the U.S., shows "virtually EVERY Kraft processed `cheese' product in the supermarket contains NPCs."
"Add up the Kraft products listing MPC as an ingredient: Cheez Whiz, Velveeta, the array of processed Singles products, Kraft emerges as a huge user of the 100-120 million pounds of MPCs that entered the U.S. in 1999. Kraft now spells processed cheese products `M-P-C'."

The FDA actually considers MPC to be a food additive without exemption. And the FDA has no standard for MPC in our foods.

On this widely read website, asein-protein.htm, entitled"Casein Protein-The Dangers," the author focuses on one classic and definitive study. "In his book, "The China Study," Dr. T. Colin Campbell, reports how he discovered, over many years of cancer research, a possible link between animal protein intake and cancer development."

According to the on-line source, "What he discovered was that protein did indeed promote cancer development. However, it was not all types of protein. What Campbell discovered was that casein, which comprises 85% of the protein in cow's milk, promoted cancer in all stages of its development. The safe protein, that which did not promote cancer, was plant-based."

Furthermore, "Casein protein was found to promote cancer in the controlled animal studies which Campbell administered. However, further research results, particularly those of the China Study, have shown there to be a remarkable link between animal protein in general and many different diseases, not just cancer alone."

"Former Chairman of Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University, Frank Oski, M.D. even has a book called 'Don't Drink Your Milk' which blames every second health problem kids suffer on hormone-ridden commercial milk. Sixty percent of ear infections in kids under six years of age are milk-induced, and milk consumption is the number one cause of iron- deficiency anemia in infants today according to the American Association of Pediatrics."

The posts on one anti-milk/cheese website, 53.html entitled 'White Poison ColorLines,' by Shanti Rangwani, Mar 7, 2002, had only strong and harsh words to say about milk and other dairy products. "Got milk? If not, then thank your lucky stars. Because if you do, medical research shows that you are likely to be plagued by anemia, migraine, bloating, gas, indigestion, asthma, prostate cancer, and a host of potentially fatal allergies....."

If you wonder why your kids are sick and tired, and they drink milk and eat processed cheeses, just ask yourself my leading question...

What makes you think that a huge conglomerate like Kraft Foods actually cares about children's nutrition?

Vaccines, the Cost in Human Lives: Our Children's Safety First!

Vaccines cost in human lives, usually more than we are prepared to sacrifice; especially, when it comes to our children; the rule should always be, our children's safety first! “When a child dies within hours or days of vaccination, the vaccination should be the first thing suspected, not automatically rejected.” Strong sentiments perhaps, yet typically and tragically, this has been the case rather than the isolated exception. A litany of grieving mothers would agree with Sandy Mintz, an outspoken critic who has written extensively on vaccine-related infant deaths. I believe that when we as a society, deny the true ‘cause of death’ to a grieving mother and family, we to that degree...forfeit our Humanity.

Far too many mothers have had to forcibly bear witness to their sons and daughters writhing in uncontrollable agony, screaming and squirming from pain. Helpless, they could only watch in horror as their child perished before their eyes. Cause of death: SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome); and not, ‘Death by Lethal Injection,’ caused by the very vaccine the child just recently received.

Denial begins immediately upon death. The paper trail, leading from the physician/pediatrician on hand or on call, can become covertly used by the Pharmaceutical Industry to cover up the actual cause. The acting physician must state a cause of death. To this end, the vaccine manufacturer provides a list of contraindications: sudden infant death syndrome, being just one of them. The manner in which a vaccine manufacturer can state the cause of death is both revealing and clinically detached in its coldness and lack of responsibility.

Here is an actual ‘cause of death’ statement, taken from an autopsy summary of what one physician copied directly from the vaccine manufacturers' product monograph under the heading... “Contraindications: Sudden infant death syndrome has been reported following the administration of vaccines containing Diphtheria, tetanus toxoids, and pertussis vaccine. However, the significance of these reports is not clear. One common factor is the age where primary immunization was done between the ages of 2 to 6 months, a period where most sudden infant death syndromes are found to occur with a peak incidence being at 2 to 6 months”.

Laura Colebeck was just three months old!

Notice that ‘they,’ the vaccine manufacturers did not want to state the obvious: the cause of death-our vaccine. Instead, they use SIDS, as a way to generalize a ‘non-descript’ and 'unknown’ cause of death, to disavow the true cause of death-their deadly vaccine! Then, to add insult to injury, and to state it in such clinically callous terms, “However, the significance of these reports is not clear”; is simply horrific and unconscionable.

Healthy children are dying from getting immunized! That’s clear enough, for any parent to understand. Yet, most mothers innocently inoculate their children as if nothing could be more natural and safe to do. Nothing could be further from the truth!

Tens of billions of dollars are at stake, in just the vaccine business alone. To the pharmaceutical manufactures, keeping consumer confidence means a strategic offense of ‘safety reassurances’ and of creating a ‘desired need’ for their vaccine products. To this end, they willingly spend tens of millions of dollars yearly on high profile PR firms, expensive and politically connect lobbyists, while fraudulently influencing doctors, health agencies, and schools about the safety and efficacy of their deadly and debilitating vaccines. Know this, based on current research findings, they will do ‘whatever it takes’ to get these vaccines approved, and used by the general public. To them, ‘human lives’ are the cost of doing business!

Accordingly, “Vaccines kill at a much higher rate than we are lead to believe. We play vaccine roulette with our children’s lives, and we never know which child will fall victim next”. No longer satisfied or confined to being just another grieving mother, another unfortunate statistic in our ‘War on Disease’, Christine Colebeck is fighting back for the sake of her loving lost child Laura. Sadly, she has unexpectedly had to become an informed and educated parent ‘after the fact’; to personally combat these deadly and dangerous drugs.

It took an earth-shattering tragedy of epic proportions, the loss of her daughter, to realize the truth behind these vicious vaccines. For the sake of other parents, she now knows and quotes the odds, “If the odds are 1 in 500 thousand for death, 1 in 100 thousand for permanent brain injury, 1 in 1700 for seizures and convulsions, and 1 in 100 for an adverse reaction, are you willing to take that chance? Are any odds acceptable enough to convince you to gamble with your child’s life? To read Laura’s Story go to

World-renowned health expert and anti-vaccine crusader Dr. Leonard Horowitz doesn’t mince words either when he states, “The greatest lie ever told is that these vaccines are safe and effective.” Dr. Horowitz, a Harvard graduate, and independent health investigator have been a vocal opponent of both the pharmaceutical and medical industries. He has single-handedly taken on these industries by tirelessly lecturing and publishing the truth behind the scandalous frauds that have been, and are still being perpetrated on the American public and our World, by these criminal and greedy, self-serving corporate interests. To find out more go to his website:

Most opponents of vaccination firmly believe that if the truth were known, a tragedy could be avoided. Every death after a vaccination should be immediately investigated. Christine Colebeck had to wait almost a year for her daughter’s autopsy report. Shockingly, she had to find out the truth for herself, that her daughter died not of the vaccine, but from SIDS.

No toxicology was ever done by the physician; and no report was ever filed with ‘VAERS,’ the Federal governments’ Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. You see, if the death is labeled a SIDS incident, it does not require reporting, even if the child dies only a few hours after receiving an inoculation. This is one way in which many deaths/statistics attributed to the vaccine are covered up and hidden from public view.

For concerned parents, Christine adds these final words of caution, “The governments own literature advises that there has been little or no testing in the area of vaccine safety or efficacy. Essentially, our children are the test. According to their literature, immunization is “the most cost-effective” way to prevent disease. Nowhere in their literature does it claim to be the safest. We are trading our children's lives to save the government money. We are told that the benefits outweigh the risks, but many of the diseases that we vaccinate for are not even life-threatening; however, the vaccine itself has the potential to kill”.

Please, become an informed and educated parent, don’t settle for your child’s health at any cost!

Ensure: Dubious Claims In A Can

One of the most popular ‘meal replacements’ drinks on the market today is Ensure. But, as its’ can claims, is it actually “ The No.-1 Doctor Recommended”? And, as its label boasts, is it truly a “Complete balanced nutrition to help stay healthy, active and energetic”? Or, is it just another pretend product posturing for the attention and pocketbooks of easy to fleece and trusting consumers?

Ensures’ main target market are the elderly, the sickly, and the poor, whose immune systems are already stressed and compromised because of their debilitating pre-existing physical conditions. In other words, healthy people are not the target consumers for this drink. They sell Ensure mainly to the sick and elderly. Although, over this past decade or more, they have tried to break away from this stereotype with other ‘enriched’ products targeted at other groups of adults.

In an ‘opinion’ piece, Mike Adams of, an expert in the field of natural health and usually an outspoken critic of ‘Big Pharma’, had only his opinion to share with his readers when he recently penned this piece entitled, “Opinion: Ensure is primarily sugar water, marketed with misleading statements that deceive consumers”. Why ‘opinion,’ is it or isn’t it? And, why would an expert shy away from telling you the truth in clear factual terms?

Well, after tracing the products' manufacturer listed in the article to its parent company Abbott Labs, the explanation became crystal clear. Ensure is a BIG selling product and it = BIG PROFITS! It dominates the marketplace as the # 1 selling ‘meal replacement’ drink worth billions in yearly sales.

Ensure is not a newcomer on the scene and has been around since 1974. It has gone through a number of marketing incarnations, and product enrichment's over these past three decades by a company with a professed proud tradition of more than a century of caring service: “A Promise for Life-Turning Science into Caring.” At least that’s what their website would tell you.

A little research into its history and it clearly becomes self-evident that both Ensure’s claims and Abbott Labs conduct as a responsible corporate entity has been nothing short of dubious and deceiving. This is not merely my ‘opinion’ but a statement of verifiable fact! For more proof go to these documented sites: ; and Or, simply Google ‘Abbott Labs settlements and lawsuits’.

With posturing prose that only a 25.9 billion dollars (last years sales) pharmaceutical company can afford, they glowingly embrace the best that they can be, on paper as well as on their website: While an unsuspecting public continues to be fooled by misleading statements that deceive them into believing that Ensure is all that it claims to be.

A cursory examination of the first four ingredients listed on the can should tell us all we need to know about the value of this product for your health:

3.Corn Syrup

Water! That’s a pretty pricey ingredient, at least within a can of Ensure. Then, we have sugar. Next is corn syrup, which we are all familiar with as a sweetener. So far, this sounds more like the ingredients in most soft drinks. Corn syrup is a refined carbohydrate with an extremely high glycemic index value. Continued and excessive corn syrup consumption has been associated with weight gain and the onset of diabetes.

The fourth ingredient Maltodextrin is another refined carbohydrate that’s also high on the glycemic index list. It is intimately linked to diabetes as well. I personally see no difference at all, nutritionally speaking, between sugar and the two other sweeteners listed. Mixed with water, they become as Mike Adams claims, “Primarily sugar water…”

Why would Ross Products, the manufacturer of Ensure state so boldly on the label that it is the “No.-1 Doctor Recommended”? I ask, ‘who’ are these doctors, and ‘why’ would they, should they be recommending ‘sugar water’ for anyone’s health?

What is equally shocking is that one of the instruction points on the side of the can states that, “To use as your only source of nutrition, see your doctor.” Are they kidding? This statement obviously implies that some ‘nutritionally challenged’ doctor somewhere could easily let a sick or elderly person depend on this drink to sustain them. My question to any ‘health conscious’ person is, “Is sugar safe?”

Sugar is a lethal substance. At least that’s what I know as a fact, for what it’s worth. Sugar, as you may or may not know has been linked with the following epidemic illnesses: diabetes, obesity, clinical depression, including various nutritional and mineral deficiencies.

It is also known to promote osteoporosis and heart disease. For over four decades, studies have conclusively shown that sugar is directly associated with personality disorders in children and adults; mood swings, and even violence, especially in males. Yet, we continue to feed it to our children by the pound!

Your pancreas and liver become stressed because of sugar and have to work overtime to metabolize it, which over time can create insulin sensitivity. If you do your homework, you will realize that sugar is a ‘non-food’ with zero nutritional value. And, it doesn’t take a genius to check out the literature by using Google Scholars’ search engine for the terms ‘sugar and diabetes’. Thousands of scholarly citations instantly pop up. Surely, this is enough proof for anyone.

Is it a “Complete balanced nutrition to help stay healthy, active and energetic”? For the sick and elderly, their target market, that’s exactly what they desperately need in their lives. Instead of being ‘in-bound,’ ‘bed-ridden’ or ‘immobile,’ they are looking to be ‘active and energetic.’ How do they produce this ‘active and energetic’ condition, by the sugar/carbohydrate rush alone, 60 grams of it per 8 ounce serving? Or, is their claim of “health” and “complete balanced nutrition” based on the rest of the cans’ ingredients?

Allow me to summarize my observations and comments regarding the rest of the cans’ contents. They mainly consist of a few genetically modified vegetable oils combined with a milk protein called calcium caseinate, and a few other vegetable proteins, probably genetically modified as well. And, to complete the contents, a list of various vitamins and minerals with their numeric values in dosage terms are also provided. But if you’ll notice, if you care to look, it is much less than the daily RDI (Recommended Dietary Intake). Even a one-a-day multi-vitamin capsule has more nutritional value!

The source of these ‘nutrients’ is not disclosed on the can. Knowing what I know about the food and pharmaceutical industries though, I would suspect that these last ingredients are not plant-based, and instead, synthetically and cheaply mass-produced in the laboratory for mass consumption in the marketplace. Calling these cheaply produced and de-valued nutrients “complete” or “balanced” is blatantly misleading, as well as deceiving. My statement of fact: A hefty price to pay for primarily sugar water!
