Bacteria-eating combo virus sprayed on meats, cheeses and organic foods

NaturalNews) Clever labeling laws have made it possible for companies to spray a bacteria-eating virus, the food additive called "Listex," on organic food and get away with it. You can find this cocktail of six bacteria-eating viruses (bacteriophages) on everything from meat and cheese to fruits and vegetables. This additive is a combination of "trained killers" that have been concocted in a lab to target Listeria monocytogenes, a bacterium responsible for sickening humans. It's just another band-aid approach to dealing with CAFO pathogens, and no companies are even required to tell you. What's "growing" inside your refrigerated, packaged, "ready-to-eat" product? Could it be superbug Listeria or just biotech's Bt-cry-toxin disorder? Maybe it's all just fear mongering. (http://www.fooddemocracynow.org)


Food Criminals and the FDA
As consumers are getting more and more savvy about reading labels, these food criminals figure out new ways to get around being noticed. Changing names, using super-fine print and jumping to use FDA-approved toxins on even organic food are perfect examples of a flawed food system where checks and balances are virtually nowhere to be found. Even USDA-certified organic food does not have to pass any heavy metal toxicity tests or have any warnings about mercury, lead or aluminum content. How safe is THAT for the environment and human health? How can the USDA-certified organic seal still allow this?

The American conventional meat industry uses ammonia and bleach to kill viruses, virus combinations to kill bacteria, DNA from insects to kill other insects in corn and soy, insecticide inside seeds to kill beetles and antibiotics to kill pathogens in bred-for-slaughter animals, but it doesn't all work all the time. Cases of E. coli and Salmonella go widespread and lead to recalls of all kinds of products. Cases of superbugs and superweeds are spreading in the U.S. So who's recalling Listex? Who's trying to ban it? Who even knows about it? (http://www.foodrenegade.com)


Not one single human safety study done on Listex
You may be familiar with the acronym "GRAS," meaning "generally recognized as safe." This is the FDA's favorite way to approve anything that they don't want to spend any money on researching for safety. Here's another phrase you'll recognize: "This statement has not yet been evaluated by the FDA." For natural and organic vitamins, minerals, herbs and tinctures, that usually means that it works and the establishment doesn't want you to believe it, use it or be healed from your Listex poisoning, GMO food, fluoridated water or lab-made pharmaceutical medicine addiction.

The virus "safety precaution" is an overload of endotoxins -- substances known to provoke allergies, asthma, autoimmune disorders, inflammation and elevated cholesterol, and even work as a catalyst for colon cancer. Viruses are highly adaptable, so the samples presented to the FDA simply can't be reliable, even if endotoxin levels were undetectable at the time they were approved. This is a complex matter with very scary implications. Intralytix, Listex's manufacturer, claims to have "purified" the viruses, but what is happening year after year is a mystery. (http://www.fooddemocracynow.org)

Here's comes the rub. Bacteriophages can battle with friendly bacteria in the digestive system, making it harder to digest food. This can severely damage your immune system and your first line of defense, which is your gut flora. What will the body do to protect itself from Listex? This is a valid concern.


How do GMOs interact with mass quantities of bacteriophages?
Viral fragments in genetically modified foods contain viral "promoter genes" that help foreign DNA infect the host. This means that live viruses inside Biotech's GM corn, soy, cottonseed, canola and sugar beets can recombine to create more aggressive viruses (hence the term recombinant). Ever been worried that you'll get a flu shot or vaccination with a LIVE VIRUS and come down with the very sickness that you were being inoculated to avoid? Imagine inserting live viruses into your food, spraying your food with bacteria-eating viruses and then getting a flu shot, all in the same day.

Look for sustainable, local farms that treat their animals with respect, where they graze and see sunshine, where they eat natural food that they are supposed to eat, and where they don't need antibiotics to fight back infections, because they don't get infections and parasites from their living quarters. Look for certified organic food and ask questions of the manufacturer about heavy metal toxins, known carcinogens and Listex.

America is full of immuno-compromised adults, thanks to allopathic medicine, chemotherapy and GMO food. Educate your family members, your friends, your kids and your neighbors about natural health news that affects their daily lives.

Don't be one of the 1,600-plus Listex victims this year or some other kind of victim of food "terrorism." Never eat GMO anything. It is a cold hard fact that pesticide and insecticide cause cancer and mental illness. Don't be a guinea pig for Big Food!

FDA warns of risks to cortisone injections in the spine

The Food & Drug Administration is warning that injections of corticosteroids into the spine's epidural space -- an extremely common treatment for radiating back or neck pain -- in rare cases may result in loss of vision, stroke, paralysis and death.


And that's even in the absence of fungal and other contamination introduced by compounding pharmacies that killed 48 people in 2012 and 2013.
Physicians offering these injections to patients with back or neck pain should discuss these rare but serious risks with patients considering a jab of steroidal medication into the cerebrospinal fluid, the FDA said Wednesday.


The warnings mark the opening volley of an FDA effort to improve the safety of a pain treatment that thrives in medical practice without ever having received the agency's formal blessing. While many patients and physicians swear by the treatment for back and neck pain, the use of corticosteroids injected into the spinal space has never been shown safe and effective in clinical trials assessed by the FDA.


Later this year, the drug-safety agency said it will convene an advisory panel to discuss the risks and benefits of such injections and explore whether further regulation would reduce injuries from this use of injected methylprednisolone, hydrocortisone, triamcinolone, betamethasone and dexamethasone.


An expert panel of pain specialists convened by the FDA has drafted a slate of recommendations to minimize possible harms from this specific use of corticosteroids, and the FDA says it will release those guidelines when they're finalized.

AUTISM IS SPEAKING!

I just read today that the autism rate in NJ has doubled since 2002, now with 1 in every 68 children born autistic or found to develop autism spectrum.  Boys are 5 times more likely than girls to develop it, and it crosses all socio-economic, racial and ethnic lines evenly. NJ has the highest rate in the USA by far.


Could it possibly still be a coincidence that we also have the most mandated vaccines?? A whopping 36 doses; some given right at birth-some actually given to the pregnant mother during birth, like the flu vaccine!!


Not only are we the most vaccinated state, but we are also one of the few that does not allow parents an exemption on principle. Keep believing the "scientific evidence" produce by vaccine manufacturers that sees no connection between autism and vaccines.  I have a nice bridge in Brooklyn for you...

THE TRUTH ABOUT ANTIBIOTICS

When it comes to viral infections, antibiotics work because of the belief behind them and can actually do more harm than good

AS YOU READ THIS, MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS OF PEOPLE are needlessly taking antibiotics for viral illnesses. Mind you, I am definitely an antibiotic supporter. They have been lifesavers in many situations. Ever since I saw a movie in grade school on antiseptic surgery founder Joesph Lister's life and work, I was enthralled by the prospect that there was a time when the world knew nothing of "germs." We know a lot more now, so why do medical doctors still allow adult patients to take so many antibiotics in situations when they know such treatment is useless?


The American Academy of Pediatrics wised up many years ago when it realized parents refused to leave pediatrician's offices without a prescription for an antibiotic. They wanted a pill to stop their child's runny nose, whether the doctor thought it was needed or not. (Isn't that what parents were investing their time and hard earned money in to be there? "Where's my kid's drugs?!")
The academy decided it was time to put a stop to this nonsense, and released a policy paper instructing pediatricians not to give any more antibiotic prescriptions for non-bacterial illnesses — period! This was especially in reference to Otitis Media, or middle-ear infection, one of the biggest over-prescribed for culprits.


Now, to the adults: If I see one more patient in my office telling me, "Well, I went to my M.D. and he finally gave me an antibiotic. As soon as I started to take it, I felt better!" I think I am going to go crazy! Don't people understand it is psychosomatic? You feel better because you are making yourself feel better! You believe you will feel better, so you do! It's called the power of the mind over the body, and it is a function of the body's ability to heal itself.


As far back as the 1950s, Dr. Joseph J. Murphy — quite coincidental, but we are in no way related — wrote "The Power of Your Subconscious Mind." This book has been re-released several times, and it remains the original cornerstone of the mind-body movement. Since the 1960s, more and more authors and experts in the field of mind-body medicine, eastern philosophy and self healing have expanded on Murphy's original ideas. Consider this:
  1. All colds, bronchitis, coughs, even the flu, are caused by viruses, not bacteria. Antibiotics are useless!
  2. Studies in Europe have shown taking antibiotics may actually reduce your immune system's ability to fight viruses. That's right! You are making the problem worse!
  3. Overuse of antibiotics by misinformed adults is producing strains of super bugs, or bacteria we cannot control. Consider the killer Staph infections lately, toxic shock and the return of Tuberculosis. These are caused by people overusing antibiotics.
What should you do when you feel a cold coming on? I have always believed it's a depressed immune system, not the presence of the virus alone, that causes viral infections to take hold. Build your immune system by eating right, exercising, thinking positive thoughts, resting and practicing holistic healthcare.


Feel the sniffles? Rest, eat well, stay regular with your chiropractic adjustments with me and get some more rest. Think positive and have your thoughts trained on a fit, healthy, well state of existence. You'll be surprised at how quickly your body will do the work — and heal itself.
