Common Links in Swine Flu Deaths...

staphylococcus aureusA recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that of the 36 children who died from H1N1 from April to August, six had no chronic health conditions. But all of them had a co-occurring bacterial infection.

The most common co-occurring infection that causes flu-related deaths is staphylococcus aureus. A third of the population carries it, most in their nose or on their skin.

The flu causes upper respiratory damage, which allows the staph to make its way into the lungs.


Star Tribune October 5, 2009

Dr. Mercola''s CommentsDr. Mercola's Comments:

This is exactly what I was referring to in Wednesday’s special swine flu alert. If you missed it, I urge you to take a moment to review it now. It received over 80,000 views within hours of being published.

In it, I discussed the prevailing propaganda being streamed through popularTV programslike 60-Minutes.

60-Minutes’ Story Also Highlighted Bacterial Infection as Flu Tragedy

Their segment, which aired last Sunday, did ask some hard questions to the Assistant Surgeon General. But they didn't ask why CDC officials persist in telling the public that this H1N1 strain of influenza is quite dangerous when the experience of those in the southern hemisphere (which just finished their flu season) is in direct conflict with what the CDC is telling the American people.

And, just like most of the mainstream media, 60-Minutes did not ask some of the most essential questions that need to be answered if you are to understand what is really going on with this "pandemic."

The issue of coexisting bacterial infections is one of those questions that need to be looked at more closely.

Their segment followed the story of a young high school football player who was infected with the H1N1 virus, received some form of medication for his flu symptoms, and then quickly developed a life-threatening staph infection in his lungs.

However, no questions were asked about what type of medication he received, even though it was clear that, after recovering slightly, he then quickly deteriorated after receiving the medication.

There was also no mention of whether the teen had already been vaccinated for seasonal or H1N1 influenza, either recently or in the past years.

A Canadian preliminary study is provocative in that it suggests that those who have gotten seasonal influenza vaccine in the past may be at greater risk for getting H1N1 and having complications.

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is calling for a comparison of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated individuals for all health outcomes, and I believe it would be prudent to do so.

After all, in order for anyone to make an informed decision about vaccines, you need to have certain facts at hand, not conjecture stating that something is "believed to be safe" even though it has never been studied!

Why Aren’t These Important Questions Being Asked?

So far 81 children have died from H1N1 in the US. The death of any child is tragic. However, using these deaths to potentially harm countless others who are not naturally at risk may be even worse.

Here are some of the questions that need honest answers, as they may paint an entirely different picture than what we are currently told by health officials and the media.

How many pediatric deaths occurred in children who:

  • Were positively lab confirmed as H1N1?

  • Had underlying chronic immune and brain dysfunction?

  • Were fully vaccinated according to CDC recommendations?

  • Had received influenza vaccine this year?

  • Had received seasonal influenza vaccine in previous years?

  • Received Tamiflu or another anti-viral prior to death?

  • Had a coinciding bacterial infection with H1N1?

  • Were never vaccinated - totally unvaccinated?

With only 81 sets of medical records to review, someone ought to be able to compile these statistics.

So far we know that, of the 36 children who died from H1N1 between April and August of this year, 30 had some form of chronic health condition, and all of them had a co-occurring bacterial infection.

Clearly, having a robust, well-functioning immune system is the best way to ensure your body’s innate ability to fight off this mild flu virus, and not succumb to secondary infections such as staphylococcus aureus.

I’d also like to know how many flu deaths might be attributed to antibiotic-resistant staph infections.

According to the Star Tribune, the most common co-occurring infection that causes flu-related deaths is staphylococcus aureus, which is commonly found on your skin and in your nose. About a third of the population carries it.

Unfortunately, methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, also known as MRSA, has become a serious public health problem, one that is getting progressively worse and actually exacts a greater death toll than "modern plagues" like AIDS.

Needless to say, we already know the reason for the ever increasing threat of MRSA – over use of antibiotics, both in medicine and conventional farming practices. It’s an entirely man-made problem, the answer to which is exercising RESTRAINT in the use of antibiotics, so that they can actually work when someone’s life is really on the line…

It could be of great value to have more facts about each of these H1N1 flu deaths.

But the fact still remains that flu vaccines will nearly always decrease your overall immune function, not enhance it!

Obese at Six Times Higher Risk from H1N1 Complications

Most authorities agree that the H1N1 variant virus is quite mild. The vast majority of people (99.99%) are having very brief and mild illnesses from this virus. And yet, some people do die from it -- some die each and every flu season. But who, and why?

Unfortunately, the media is not giving you the answers to these questions.
I will publish an excellent review, and a two-hour audio interview with Dr. Russell Blaylock on this issue on Tuesday, so please stay tuned! Because as he will explain in greater detail, 100 percent of those who have died had underlying health problems before they were infected.

In addition, one of the more powerful risk factors for being admitted to the ICU and of dying is obesity.
Turns out obese people are admitted 6x more often than those of normal weight. And obesity plays a significant role in the risk to children and pregnant women as well, something that has never been discussed by the media, the CDC or the public health officials.

According to Dr. Blaylock, one study found that 32.7% of those admitted to the ICU had asthma or other chronic pulmonary disease, far higher than the general population. Obesity is also associated with a high incidence of insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome, both of which would increase your risk of having a serious infection, even to mild viruses.

BEWARE: Taking Tylenol with the Flu Shot May Actually Make You Worse

According to two Czechoslovakian studies, published in the journal Lancet on October 17, giving your child an analgesic to prevent fever when getting a vaccine could make things worse.

Their studies showed that after vaccination, the immune response was lower among babies who were given acetaminophen (such as Tylenol), right after they received the shot.

The vaccines used in the study were for pneumococcal disease, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, hepatitis B, polio and rotavirus. No flu vaccines were included. However, it’s likely the effect would still be the same. quotes infectious disease expert Dr. Marc Siegel as saying that:

"…the conclusion that Tylenol not only suppresses fever, but also decreases immune response is plausible. After all, what is an immune response? It's an inflammatory response."

The researchers also found that although fewer infants developed a fever after getting acetaminophen, they also developed significantly fewer antibodies against the disease they were vaccinated against. They believe the acetaminophen’s anti-inflammatory activity might interfere with your body’s immune system antibody response, which could explain why the vaccine was rendered less effective.

However, what is not mentioned by either MSN, or, who also ran an article on these findings, is that a lowered immune response also means you're more susceptible to develop other infections. And, as we now know, it is secondary infections such as bacterial staph infections that turn out to be deadly -- not the flu virus in and of itself.

You Take Your Chances Either Way…

I also want to stress that you must remember that you are taking your chances either way, whether you get the flu shot or take your chances with the flu.

This year, flu deaths are trumpeted across the world, and yet people are also dying and suffering life-altering disabilities shortly after receiving the flu vaccine, whether it be the seasonal- or the H1N1 vaccine. (They’re claimed to be nearly identical anyway, so why would it matter which it is?)

For example, here are just a few recent stories that receive nowhere near the same amount of attention. In fact, most if not all, are being portrayed as unfortunate coincidences that have nothing to do with the fact they just received a flu shot, and no further investigations are made:

Remember, the medical industry ACCEPTS these occasional deaths as collateral damage during mass vaccinations and other drug interventions.

The question is, do you?

Flu Mortality, Unrelated to Vaccines, Has Been Down for Years

Also remember that the mortality rate of the swine flu is extremely low.

Dr. Ronald Whitmont, M.D. reports in a recent article of The Epoch Times:

"So far, H1N1 is much less severe than the regular flu. The calculated mortality rate for H1N1 in 2009 is only 0.5 percent.

In 2006, the death rate for influenza was 0.77 percent, and in 2005 it was 0.79 percent.

Of course, the CDC and the pharmaceutical industries claim credit for this reduction in death rate, but statistical analysis shows that this trend predated the introduction of the vaccine and is not correlated with either vaccine or antiviral medication use." [Emphasis mine.]

Unfortunately, no one knows what the mortality rate is within, say, two weeks of receiving a flu vaccine, because there’s no tracking method in place tracing each and every person who is vaccinated.

These are the kind of statistics that are sorely needed.

How to Prevent Flu the Natural Way

Please understand that there are effective ways to reduce your chances of ever getting the flu in the first place, without ever going near a vaccine.

H1N1 is a milder than normal flu bug, and it is the state of your immune system – not the virus itself – that determines whether or not you will get sick, even if you come in contact with the virus.

Following these simple guidelines can go a long way to help keep your immune system in optimal working order:

  • Optimize your vitamin D levels. This may be one of your most important strategies for maintaining optimal immune function against all disease, not just the flu. Vitamin D has been well documented to increase the production of over 200 antimicrobial peptides that fight infection.

  • Avoid Sugar. Sugar decreases the function of your immune system almost immediately, and as you likely know, a strong immune system is key to fighting off viruses and other illness. Be aware that sugar is present in foods you may not suspect, like ketchup and fruit juice.

  • Get Enough Rest. Just like it becomes harder for you to get your daily tasks done if you're tired, if your body is overly fatigued it will be harder for it to fight the flu. Be sure to check out my article Guide to a Good Night's Sleep for some great tips to help you get quality rest.

  • Don't Let Stress Become Overwhelming. We all face some stress everyday, but if stress becomes overwhelming then your body will be less able to fight off the flu and other illness.
    If you feel that stress is taking a toll on your health, consider using an energy psychology tool such as the Meridian Tapping Technique (MTT), which is remarkably effective in relieving stress associated with all kinds of events, from work to family to trauma. You can check out my free, 25-page MTT manual for some guidelines on how to perform it on yourself.

  • Exercise. When you exercise, you increase your circulation and your blood flow throughout your body. The components of your immune system are also better circulated, which means your immune system has a better chance of finding an illness before it spreads.

  • Take a good source of animal based omega-3 fats like Krill Oil. Increase your intake of healthy and essential fats like the omega-3 found in krill oil, which is crucial for maintaining health.

  • Wash Your Hands. Washing your hands will decrease your likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people. Be sure you don't use antibacterial soap for this -- antibacterial soaps are completely unnecessary, and they cause far more harm than good. Instead, identify a simple chemical-free soap that you can switch your family to.

  • Take appropriate supplements like oil of oregano extract, propolis, olive leaf extract, elder flower extract, acerola, and DMG or effective homeopathic remedies.
    However you will need to educate yourself on the particular benefits of each BEFORE you purchase any supplements on that list.
    Any company that informs you of the actions of alternative remedies for H1N1 will be in violation of US Federal law. A newly created Swine Flu Task Force has been given the authority to shut the business down and even throw owners in jail.
    Violations of these new rules are being prosecuted even more aggressively than alternative cancer treatments! Earlier this week, Dr. Andrew Weil actually received an FDA/FTC warning letter that threatens jail time for failure to comply with the rules.

swine flu posters

You Can Make a Difference

Most polls show that we ARE making a difference because more people are becoming educated about influenza and flu vaccines, especially H1N1 swine flu. Recent national polls have revealed that 30 to 50% in many communities are not planning to get a swine flu shot. Those who haven't made up their minds yet have lots of questions. So we have created some posters that you can print and postALL over your community, your local stores, office and schools.

"How to Actually Choose HEALTHY Chocolate for Halloween"

Candies with sugars, HFCS, and other frightening ingredients can wreak havoc on your health. Now enjoy these chocolate treats without the negatives...

ew snack foods evoke as much passion and desire as chocolate.

And if you have children, Halloween provides you with a wide assortment of sugary chocolate temptations -- all part of this family fun event.

Regardless of whether or not it's Halloween... if you're a chocolate lover, the idea of giving it up even for health reasons is often not an option you consider.

As far as your kids go... well, most kids love chocolate. Asking them not to eat any from their Halloween trick-or-treat stashes is pretty much wishful thinking.

Believe it or not, this is one instance when you can have your chocolate and eat it too... more and more studies confirm some types of chocolate are actually very good for you.

Since I realize many people simply refuse to give up their chocolate, and there are actually healthy versions of chocolate, I put my team to task to create guidelines to help you select and eat chocolate at a healthy level.

Especially at Halloween time, this could help give you some direction for the healthiest chocolate for you and your kids.

I do feel it's important to remind you about wholesome foods like organic vegetables and fruits that provide you with healthy nutrients -- without the sugar content of most chocolates.

With Halloween just around the corner, the potential for you and your family to consume even more chocolate is simply a reality that you will have to contend with. However, if you follow the guidelines my staff and I created for you, you can now enjoy one of your passions, and boost your health at the same time.

Guidelines for Selecting Healthy Chocolate

If you're a chocolate lover, or even occasionally indulge, I strongly recommend you follow these guidelines... which will allow you to enjoy your chocolate and help you protect your health at the same time.

  • Find chocolate made from the least destructive processing techniques -- Organic is always best as over-processing reduces your healthy nutrients and can introduce lead contamination.

  • Restrict your intake to dark, organic chocolate -- Consuming chocolate as close to its original raw state (unprocessed cacao) provides you the best health benefits.

  • Avoid chocolate made from milk or milk byproducts -- Adding milk to the chocolate process can diminish your antioxidant benefits.

  • Select chocolate with low sugar content -- Sugar can seriously impact your immune system

  • Consume chocolate in moderation -- When you eat too much chocolate, you potentially diminish and defeat any health benefits due to the sugar.

  • Avoid chocolate if you're struggling with a health challenge -- Sugar can suppress your immune system.

  • Choose a chocolate made to the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility -- Fair Trade certification should be part of your selection process.

I'll get into more details on each of these selection and consumption criteria in just a minute...

But first do this -- very thoroughly...

John Boehner: Let America Read the HC Bill – Bill Link Here…

Special-interest deals forged in secret behind closed doors. Massive bills unveiled in the dark of night and rushed to a vote before anyone in America could possibly know the details. Wasteful pork projects stuffed into giant bills passed without scrutiny or debate.

This is what passes for business as usual in Congress today. It is the way Washington has done business for generations, under majorities Republican and Democratic alike.

This year, under the Obama administration and a Democratic Congress, things have gotten out of hand. Beginning with the trillion-dollar "stimulus," a number of massive and consequential bills have been rammed through without any member of Congress having read them. These sad spectacles have sparked a public backlash, with millions of Americans demanding that Congress stop the nonsense and "read the bill!"

It's time for Congress to change.

Did the Republican Party miss an opportunity to do away with these broken congressional rituals when it held the majority in Congress? Yes.

As a result of the 1994 Contract with America, which I helped write, important reforms were implemented, such as subjecting the House to audits by a private independent auditor, requiring Congress to live under the same laws as the rest of America and banning the practice of "proxy voting" or "ghost voting" by lawmakers who hadn't actually shown up to vote at all. These were meaningful changes, but unfortunately, things stagnated, and Republicans were subsequently turned out of office.

This is why every day I challenge my Republican colleagues to consider one simple question: If we suddenly found ourselves back in the majority tomorrow, what would we do differently?

When it comes to the issue of congressional transparency, House Republicans are providing a clear answer. We've listened to the American people, and we're united in our support for common-sense changes such as "read the bill" reform that would require all bills to be posted online for a minimum of 72 hours before they are brought to a vote. We also believe:

  • Members' committee votes should be posted online within 48 hours so the American people can see how their representatives voted.
  • Committees should be required to post the text of adopted bills online within 24 hours of adoption to end the practice of "phantom amendments" being added to bills secretly after they pass at the committee level.
  • Major negotiations on sweeping bills that would dramatically expand the reach of the federal government – such as the current government takeover of health care – should be open to the public and subject to a full and honest debate when bills reach the floor.
  • Cameras should be allowed in the secretive House Rules Committee, the panel that decides which bills and amendments come to a vote.

These initiatives, which House Republicans will be officially unveiling in the coming days, enjoy bipartisan support at the rank-and-file level, and all stand ready for adoption by the full House.

What's more, 176 Republicans in the House, including me, have already signed a petition circulated by Rep. Greg Walden, R-Oregon, that would force a vote on "read the bill" reform. Only six Democrats have signed the petition to date. Why just six? Because the leaders of the Democratic majority, seeking to protect the status quo and preserve their ability to rush bills through the House without scrutiny, have forbidden their caucus members from signing the petition. They won't even allow a hearing on the matter.

It's past time for Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leaders in Congress to rethink their opposition to these common-sense reforms. Rebuilding trust between the American people and their elected representatives starts with changing Congress itself. Americans deserve a government that is open, transparent and accountable to the people it serves.

Governor Tim Pawlenty already pointed out yesterday that the opt-out for the states is a complete slight-of-hand. The states will be able to opt out of the benefits of a Public Option… little that they are after having had to pay in to the kitty for 4-full years before it goes into effect and then continue paying whether they participate or not. He also said that whether they call it a trigger, co-op, opt-out or find some guts and really say what it is… socialized medicine heading toward a single-payer, it will end up as the later to the detriment of Americans and America.

Dump all the ObamaCare Bills and Start Over With Real Reform!!!!!!!!!!!

The Reality is that this is Smoke and Mirrors… The costs are based on partial or misleading figures. If there were large amounts of money to be saved in Medicare… it would have been done, many expenses have been moved to other bills to “fix” the CBO scoring and hide costs and much of this will not start until years after the programs are funded… and the lies and untruths go on!!

Flash! Joe Lieberman Will Join Senate Filibuster Unless Public Option Is Removed – Pelosi, Reid & WH Meeting Secretly

Sen. Joe Lieberman says he will back a GOP filibuster of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s healthcare reform bill because of its inclusion of a “public option” — a devastating blow to the Obama administration’s hopes of unified Democratic support for a healthcare bill with a government-run insurance program. (Full Article)

We are getting closer and closer to “ObamaCare Day”  Please keep up the pressure on your representatives and Senators.  Stop ObamaCare, especially the Public Option.  We all know by now if Obama, Pelosi and Reid are desperate to push something down our throats… It is BAD!!

Political Cartoon by Chip Bok

ObamaCare: If At First You Don't Succeed: Lie, Lie Again Is Washington’s Motto

(And when you keep having to re-write, re-name and hide what you are doing… any thinking person knows it is all bad and all wrong!!)

Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama are scheming in secret on ObamaCare... they're essentially meeting behind closed doors to re-write it.

     What's in this re-write? Who knows? But one thing is certain... your worst health care nightmares are about to come true... and soon. 

That's not a rumor. It's an unfortunate fact.  Patricia Murphy with Politics Daily writes:
"[T]op White House officials are now meeting in the Capitol with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Sens. Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Max Baucus of Montana, away from Republicans and the press...."

     But it gets even worse.

     Once the cat was out of the bag - in what may go down in history as one of the most surreal moments of American political history - Harry Reid and Max Baucus actually emerged from their proverbial smoke-filled room just long enough to reassure us that they're actually being open and transparent.     

According to Jeffrey Young with The Hill:
"Two senators at the forefront of healthcare reform went to great lengths Tuesday to brag about how open and transparent the legislative process has been. Then, they resumed prepping for another closed-door meeting."

     Baucus actually had the audacity to tell the assembled reporters:

"I have not been involved in such an open and transparent process as this. I'm very, very proud that we have done it... it's so important to remind ourselves that no effort that I've been involved in and I don't think anyone else in the Senate's been involved with - certainly nothing with such significance and magnitude - has been so open and transparent as this. Totally open and transparent and I'm very proud of it."    

Dodd picked up the thought and continued the sickening charade:
"Let me pick up on the point that Sen. Baucus was making. The suggestion somehow that this is being done otherwise is just blatantly false and a distraction from [what] we need to be talking about."

And when they were finished... they excused themselves and went back to their back-room negotiations

Feel like screaming yet? You should!!  And you/we need to be screaming at Washington to STOP.  Dump ObamaCare and start over or just let everything settle and begin bi-partisan real incremental changes next year.  This is what really needs to happen!

Throughout the congressional halls and in the closed-door meetings Rahm Emanuel, Harry Reid, and other powerful Dems are trying to persuade moderate dems to accept the newly proposed bill and its highly controversial public option.  The newest and perhaps the most hypocrical technique is telling all the dems to remember Ted Kennedy as they cast their vote on the government-run health care bill.  For once, I actually agree with the progressives on this one.  No, i don't agree with their immoral tactics, but I do believe that legislators should remember the late Senator as they cast their vote.  By this, I mean that they should remember that he freely chose to use his own money to choose his own doctors, his own treatment, and his own preferred method of treatment.  Ironically, if the Dems universal- single payer system prevails, which it eventually will if this bill passes (its a very slippery slope, and we know that is their intentions, from Obama down) this option will no longer be available to millions of Americans.  Did Ted Kennedy, (a staunch proponent of universal healthcare) go to Cuba, Canada, or England for treatment, since they have such programs in place?  No, of course not he chose the best health care system in the world, the United States of America.  I pray that all Americans will always enjoy the opportunity to purchase their own healthcare.

And do not be fooled ObamaCare includes higher costs, worse medical care; especially for seniors… your parents, grandparents and someday you, loss of choice, public money for abortions, government control in your healthcare decisions including life and death which equals death panels, no matter what they call them, higher taxes, cuts in Medicare, more costs to the already overburdoned states through Medicaid, coverage of illegals, and it will add to the national debt.

Demand real insurance reform now!; Tort reform, lobbying reform, and portability are the only ways to do so... yet they are absent in EVERY bill thus far.

The republicans have been locked out of this process and now Olympia Snowe, the only Republican Senator who temporarily supported ObamaCare has dropped her support.  Republicans have tried to meet with the White House and have been refused a meeting since April, even with the Senator and Congressman who are trained doctors.

Don’t buy the Dem’s and Obama’s lies.  Remember when Obama promised he would meet with anyone who asked and go over the bill line by line…  He won’t even allow anyone but his cheerleaders into a general HC meeting.  The GOP has lots of suggestions.  Here are few:

GOP Healthcare Solutions

Those who have followed the progress of ObamaCare and signed petitions, attended town halls, picketed and contacted the WH, the Senate and Congress over and over are tired… but we are on the final stretch and cannot stop now.  Enlist a friend or two or three and both step up and keep up the pressure!!!!

“It is all a death panel!”… Dick Morris, author of Catastrophe

We are being had… all the way round!!!  The only answer is standing up!

Cinnamon and Honey

Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. It will do what some call turning to sugar. In reality honey is always honey. However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will do what I rather call "crystallizing". When this happens I loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the honey container in the hot water, turn off the heat and let it liquefy.. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. To do so will kill the enzymes in the honey.

Cinnamon and Honey

Bet the drug companies won't like this one getting around. Facts on Honey and Cinnamon: It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also accept honey as a 'Ram Ban' (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.

Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients. Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada , in its issue dated 17 January,1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:


Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack.
Also, those who have already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack.. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada , various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.


Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.


Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm waterand drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.


Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.


Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.


Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.

According to the studies done in India and Japan , it is revealed that if Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.


Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacterial andviral diseases.


Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ' Ingredient' which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans also increase and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old..

Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.


Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.


Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.


Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three times a day.

Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M. when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.


People of South America , first thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.


Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing. Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it!

Katie Couric Reports on Serious Vaccine Safety Issues – Finally!!

There are new concerns about Gardasil, the vaccine that prevents a virus that may cause cervical cancer.

What makes this new information even more compelling is that Spain actually withdrew 75, 000 doses of the vaccine from their market just last week.

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) has compared Gardasil adverse events to the meningitis vaccine; Gardasil injections resulted in three times the number of Emergency Room visits -- more than 5,000. Reports of side effects were up to 30 times higher with Gardasil.

Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder of the NVIC, said,

"Now we know from this report that there are more reactions and deaths associated with Gardasil than with another vaccine given in the same age group. It's irresponsible not to take action."

We are also proud to announce a joint collaboration with NVIC, and after many months of intensive effort they have a new site up that will allow them to serve as the premier source of vaccine safety information.

Dr. Mercola''s CommentsDr. Mercola's Comments:

Over 10,000 adverse reactions, including 27 deaths, have been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) in relation to Gardasil. Yet, the CDC and FDA are alleging that the vast majority, or even ALL, of these cases are unrelated to the vaccine. Therefore, they claim, Gardasil is safe.

Says Barbara Loe Fisher, President and co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC):

“The tragic story of Gardasil vaccine is one that is playing out real time in the homes of trusting parents, who thought they were doing the right thing to try to make their daughters "one less," and in the 21st century cyberspace forum of public opinion as well as on television.”

The Gardasil vaccine is one of the most blatant deceptions going on in modern medicine. Well-meaning mothers are being deceived into thinking this shot will protect their daughters from cervical cancer, and some of them are now wondering HOW and WHY their young child died or became suddenly paralyzed.

NVIC Petitions White House and Congress to Investigate Gardasil

On February 9, the NVIC launched a petition and issued a national press release calling on President Barack Obama, his Administration and Congress, to investigate the fast track licensure and universal use recommendation of Gardasil in 2006, and the dismissal of more than 10,000 reports of Gardasil-related reactions, injuries and deaths to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System as a "coincidence" by federal health officials.
NVIC's latest Gardasil risk report, which compares the number and severity of adverse events reported to VAERS through November 30, 2008, reveals that death and serious health problems such as stroke, blood clots, cardiac arrest, seizures, fainting, lupus and rechallenge cases are reported three to 30 times more frequently after Gardasil vaccination than after meningococcal (Menactra) vaccination.
Barbara Loe Fisher explains the significance of this fact:

“If the deaths and serious injuries reported after Gardasil were only a "coincidence," there would be little or no difference between the frequency and severity of vaccine-related adverse events between two vaccines, if the vaccines were equally reactive, and the number of doses were roughly the same.
Gardasil and Menactra vaccines were licensed within a year of each other and recommended by the CDC for universal use in 11-12 year olds.

Although Menactra is given to boys and girls and has already been mandated in many states for high school and college entry, Gardasil is only given to girls and is not yet mandated.

Menatra is given as a one-dose series and, by February 25, 2008, the CDC reported that about 15.5 million doses of Menactra had been distributed in the U.S.. Gardasil is given in a three dose series and the CDC reported that, by July 2008, about 16 million doses had been distributed in the U.S.
This means that about 15 million doses of Menactra were given to about 15 million boys and/or girls and about 16 million doses of Gardasil - if every girl got three doses - were given to about five million girls.

It is individuals - not doses of vaccine - who collapse, convulse, become paralyzed, have heart attacks, develop lupus and other chronic health problems after being vaccinated. The fact that death and serious health problems are reported 3 to 30 times more frequently after Gardasil than after Menactra is highly significant and it is irresponsible for federal health officials and Merck to blow it off as unimportant.”

What Does Merck Have to Say About it?

It’s incomprehensible that the CDC, FDA, and Merck -- the makers of Gardasil – cannot see the facts presented in this VAERS analysis, and choose instead to cling to worn-out propaganda slogans and pre-written advertising messages that fly in the face of reason.

In the hours before the CBS News report shown above was broadcast, Merck addressed the differences between adverse events associated with Gardasil and Menactra as follows:

"It's important to remember that the proven benefit of GARDASIL is that it helps prevent cervical cancer caused by the two virus types responsible for most cases of cervical cancer.

Nothing is more important to Merck than the safety of our products and we carefully monitor the safety of GARDASIL on a routine basis. Experts at the FDA and CDC also continue to review data and, as recently as four months ago, said "GARDASIL continues to be safe and effective, and its benefits continue to outweigh its risks."

NVIC is not a medical organization and has a long history of raising concerns about vaccines that are in direct conflict with the opinion of leading medical experts. We encourage consumers to get reliable information about the safety of vaccines from"

Spain Already Removed the Vaccine

Spain has, as recently as last week, withdrawn 75, 000 doses of the HPV vaccine from their market, after two teenagers who received the shots were hospitalized.

Seems they weren’t as influenced by the drug company’s rhetoric as U.S. authorities, and are more concerned about the safety of their citizens.

Get Involved and Help Save the Daughters of This Nation

Says Fisher:

“In the past 27 years, the stories of death and brain damage that have been reported to the NVIC have never changed. Whether the vaccine victims are 15 months old or 15 years old, the stories are the same: a trusting parent took a bright, healthy child to a doctor for a routine vaccination and the child was never the same again.
The Gardasil vaccine was inappropriately fast tracked and licensed by the FDA and recommended by the CDC with too little attention paid to the reports of brain and immune system dysfunction that developed after vaccination in pre-licensure clinical trials.
That same cavalier attitude toward Gardasil-related deaths and serious health problems, which have been experienced by many girls and young women after licensure, is inexcusable.”

Most Americans have blindly placed their trust in the vaccine makers and in federal health agencies, whose responsibility is to ensure that drugs and vaccines licensed for public use are safe, effective and necessary.

However, over the years it has become very clear that those responsible for protecting your health are not looking out for your best interest and that of your children.

And if they won’t do it, then it is up to you and me to do it.

I urge you to sign the Investigate Gardasil Vaccine Risks Now! petition available on the web site that my team helped create for them.

If you believe strongly in NVIC's effort to inform the public about these types of issues, you can support their cause by making a donation of $25 or more to NVIC and receive a gift of Barbara's 2008 book Vaccines, Autism & Chronic Inflammation: The New Epidemic. Click HERE to make a donation.

You may also print out this NVIC flyer detailing how to recognize a vaccine reaction.
Says Fisher:

“In 2009, I have a sense of déjà vu as the story of Gardasil vaccine plays out real time. There are striking parallels between how those operating the mass vaccination system reacted in the 1980's to persistent reports that the DPT vaccine was harming more children than originally assumed, and the way they are reacting now to persistent reports that Gardasil is more reactive than it was originally assumed.

Assumption of safety is no substitute for proof of safety.

And turning away from human suffering in order to protect the status quo is not the way to run a government that needs the trust and support of the people.

In the 18th century, Queen Marie Antoinette looked down at a starving people pleading for bread to stay alive and said "Let them eat cake." It is time for everyone in government, industry and medicine to take a different approach to persistent reports of vaccine injuries and deaths or risk metaphorically suffering the same fate that ended the monarchy in France.

In the 21st century, today's peasants don't have pitchforks - they have laptops, desktops, smartphones and the internet.”

I strongly urge you to join in petitioning our new U.S. administration and Congress to take a close, hard look at the HPV vaccine, to end the needless suffering of tens of thousands of young, bright, innocent girls.

And, please, forward this important message to everyone you know by using the ‘Email this article to a friend’ button, located in the top left corner of this page.

And if you think these forced vaccines and unnecessary vaccine are bad now... just wait until ObamaCare is in Charge. Stop ObamaCare while we still can!!!

The Big Idea That Might Beat Cancer and Cut Health-Care Costs by 80 Percent

“Most current research into the causes of cancer focuses on genes and environmental triggers. Evolutionary biologist Paul Ewald of the University of Louisville in Kentucky argues that scientists have overlooked the most important cause: parasites, especially viruses. Blending medicine and Darwinian biology, Dr. Ewald considers cancer and other diseases from the pathogen’s point of view, showing how natural selection determines why the smallpox virus, for instance, is a ruthless killer while viruses for the common cold are relatively benign. He says that once we identify the viruses that trigger cancer, we can work to prevent their transmission and force them to evolve from fatal scourges into mere nuisances, eventually turning cancer into a manageable disease.

To progress toward cancer, you need a few specific genes to be mutated, within a limited number of cell divisions, to cause the cells to divide uncontrollably. But if you mutated almost any of the other 30,000 genes, the cells would die or be crippled. So how do all those specific mutations occur so rapidly without destroying the cells? It turns out that each virus that’s been studied and associated with cancer—such as hepatitis B with liver cancer or human papilloma virus with cervical cancer—evolves characteristics that allow it to target those genes immediately upon infection. They’re pushing cells to the brink of cancer because the cells will grow faster with the virus embedded inside and won’t be able to stop dividing. These viruses don’t really benefit if you get cancer, but they do benefit when the viral genome can replicate and persist despite a sophisticated immune system.

Viruses push cells to the brink; additional mutations from genetic defects or the environment are needed for full-blown cancer. Keep in mind that the vast majority of mutating agents provoke cells to stop functioning or to die, meaning there is no chance for those mutations to cause cancer. Without an infection, the few mutated cells that could potentially cause cancer stop proliferating after several divisions. But infected cells can reach such high numbers that the progression to cancer is not terminated by the many mutations that kill the cells or make them nonfunctional. The small percentage that are cancer-causing can continue to proliferate.

You can test this idea by looking at the earliest stages of dysregulation. You should find that the virus is always there, but you’re not going to find the mutations that we know are associated with that cancer. That has been done with cervical cancer. If you look at the very early stages, the virus is always there, but the mutations are there only maybe 10 percent of the time."

H1N1 National Emergency? First Daughters Not Vaccinated

President Obama's school age daughters have not been vaccinated against the H1N1 flu virus. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says the vaccine is not available to them based on their risk.

The Centers for Disease Control recommend that children ages 6 months through 18 years of age receive a vaccination against the H1N1 flu virus. At this time only children with chronic medical conditions are receiving the vaccination because their immune system is not strong enough to fight off the strain. The CDC also says a regular seasonal flu shot does not protect against the virus.

Does anybody really believe that the first daughters wouldn’t be getting the shot if the vaccine wasn’t dangerous?? Just like Dr. Oz’s kids and wife aren’t getting it?

Is Your Beauty Routine Causing Long-Term Health Damage?

toothpaste, shampoo, body wash, personal care products, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, SLS, sodium Laureth Sulfate, SLES, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Myreth SulfateDo you enjoy a shampoo with a rich lather? A shaving cream that really foams? Relaxing in a tub full of bubbles?

These may seem like some of life's simple, innocent pleasures -- until you look at what is causing all that foam and lather. Once you find out, you may decide it's not so simple or pleasurable after all.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), and their cousins like Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Myreth Sulfate produce a lot of foam very inexpensively. But SLS is so strong that it's also used to scrub garage floors. And it has been proven to cause cancer in the long run.

SLS stays in the body up to five days. Other studies show it easily penetrates the skin and enters and maintains residual levels in the heart, liver, the lungs, and the brain. Yet SLS is found in most cleansing, foaming products -- and even in some toothpastes.

U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT, November 10, 1997

Dr. Mercola''s Comments

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

Did you know that putting chemicals on your skin can be far worse than ingesting them?

This is in large part because when you eat something the enzymes in your saliva and stomach help break it down and flush it out of your body.

When the chemical cocktail is delivered into your blood stream via your skin, however, it bypasses this built-in protective filtration process, so you have decreased protection against the toxins.

There are literally thousands of chemicals used in personal care products, and only a tiny fraction of them have ever been tested for safety. It’s impossible to cover them all in one article, but I’ve written numerous articles on a number of the most common culprits, and you can find them all by using the search engine at the top of this page.

Below I will touch on a few of them, but first, let’s take a look at sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), one commonly used chemical in personal care products designed to cleanse your body.

What You Need to Know About Sodium Lauryl Sulfate

  • SLS can penetrate your eyes and other tissues – In a study performed by the Department of Ophthalmology at the Medical College of GA, they found that SLS can penetrate into your eyes and other tissues such as your brain, heart, and liver. According to Dr. Green, lead author of the study:

    “Four findings have ensued: first, SLS is rapidly taken up and accumulated by eye tissues. SLS is retained for up to five days in most eye tissues.
    Second, SLS uptake is greater in younger rabbits with decreasing amounts with increasing age.
    Third, SLS causes changes in the amounts of some proteins of eye tissues whether they are treated in the living animal or tissues are bathed in SLS while in tissue culture.
    Fourth, SLS treatment extends the healing time of the corneal epithelium (the cellular surface layer of your cornea) up to 10 days, far beyond the normal two days.
    Our findings lead us to call for more judicious use of detergents such as SLS by both manufacturers and users of soaps and shampoos. This is particularly true when possible accidental exposure to SLS could occur in infants…”

  • SLS produces nitrosamines – Nitrosamines are potent carcinogens that causes your body to absorb nitrates. According to one estimate, by Dr. David H. Fine, you may be applying 50-100 mcg’s of nitrosamine to your skin each time you use a nitrosamine-contaminated cosmetic.

  • SLS strips your skin of protective oils and moisture. In a 1959 study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, SLS caused hair and skin damage, including cracking and severe inflammation of derma-epidermal tissue, due to its protein-denaturing properties.
    In a more recent study from 1998, SLS caused mild skin inflammation in most individuals six hours after topical application. After 48 hours, the responses were “considerably more intense,” diminishing again slightly after 96 hours.
    Another study from 1983, published in the Journal of the American College of Toxicology, stated that:

    “In absorption, metabolism and excretion studies sodium lauryl sulfate had a degenerative effect on the cell membranes because of its protein denaturing properties. High levels of skin penetration may occur at even low use concentration.”

  • SLS may damage DNA – According to Japanese studies, described in Judi Vance’s book Beauty to Die For (page 23), SLS can cause cellular DNA damage.

Other Cosmetic Chemicals You Definitely Want to Avoid

Many will shrug these findings off, thinking that their exposure to chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is “insignificant.” But the point is that you are exposed to thousands of chemicals from your personal care products, many of which will surely accumulate in your body—especially if your diet and exercise habits are poor.

This toxic burden can become a significant contributing factor to health problems and serious diseases.

Did you know it’s been estimated that if you use conventional cosmetics on a daily basis, you can absorb almost 5 pounds of chemicals and toxins into your body each year?!

Many of which have been linked to deadly side effects like cancer.

The list of dangerous ingredients is quite long -- the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has stated that nearly 900 of the chemicals used in cosmetics are toxic -- but here are some of the major ones that you will definitely want to avoid:

  • Paraben, a chemical found in underarm deodorants and other cosmetics that has been shown to mimic the action of the female hormone estrogen, which can drive the growth of human breast tumors.

  • Phthalates, plasticizing ingredients (present in nearly three-quarters of 72 products tested by the Environmental Working Group), which have been linked to birth defects in the reproductive system of boys and lower sperm-motility in adult men, among other problems.

  • Musks, used as fragrances, can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to skin irritation, hormone disruption, and cancer in laboratory studies.

  • Artificial fragrances, which are among the top five known allergens, and can cause asthma and trigger asthma attacks.

  • Methylisothiazolinone (MIT), a chemical used in shampoo to prevent bacteria from developing, which may have detrimental effects on your nervous system.

  • Toluene, made from petroleum or coal tar, and found in most synthetic fragrances. Chronic exposure linked to anemia, lowered blood cell count, liver or kidney damage, and may affect a developing fetus.

  • Mineral Oil, Paraffin, and Petrolatum, these products coat your skin like plastic, clogging pores and creating a build-up of toxins. They also slow cellular development, which can cause you to show earlier signs of aging, and are a suspected cause of cancer and disruption to hormonal activity.

I highly recommend using the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database where you can look up a wide variety of products and brands to find out what they’re really made of, and whether or not they’re safe.

It’s unfortunate, but even so-called “all-natural” or “organic” products have been shown to contain hazardous ingredients, so unless you opt for products that carry the USDA Organic seal, there’s no guarantee that they’re truly organic.

The USDA Organic seal is the international gold standard for organic personal care as the ingredients in USDA certified beauty products are certified organic for food, which must adhere to much stricter standards.

Last year I had our team develop one of only five USDA certified organic cosmetic lines in the US. I am constantly amazed at the consistently good comments I receive from friends and relatives that I have given this to as a gift.

A Do-It-Yourself Beauty Regimen

The absolute easiest way to ensure that you’re not being exposed to potentially hazardous agents is to make your own personal care products, using simple all-natural ingredients that many of you may already have in your home.

Here are a few of my recommendations:

All-natural moisturizers -- Pure emu oil is a great alternative to facial- and body moisturizers and lotions, as is pure coconut oil. It’s a fantastic moisturizer and a potent source of the beneficial fat lauric acid.

All-natural acne fighter -- Rubbing just a drop of oregano oil on a breakout can speed up the healing and prevent unsightly scarring without resorting to harsh commercial acne medication (remember to wash your hands thoroughly afterwards).

All-natural deodorant – I advise stopping ALL antiperspirants. Common soap and water works fine. If you still need further help then try a pinch of baking soda mixed into water as an effective all-day deodorant.

All-natural shampoo and soaps – You can find clean, non-chemical soaps at many health food stores.

Finding recipes for your own homemade beauty products is a breeze when you have access to the internet. Just Google “homemade cosmetics” for more than 400,000 pages of recipes and instructions. We recommend that you check out Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database for many healthy alternatives.

Last but not least, if you are concerned about the numerous toxic chemicals you are exposed to on a daily basis, I strongly urge you to read Our Toxic World: A Wake Up Call. The author, Dr. Doris Rapp, does a thorough job of uncovering the many ways we are exposed to toxic chemicals and how they take a toll on your health and contribute to many chronic diseases.

America’s Healthy Future Act of 2009 – Call Congress and Say NO to ObamaCare

Finance Committee bill has been filed

After days of being huddled away with Rahm Emanual, Senate Finance Committee members have been notified that the committee's health reform bill was filed today. S. 1796 weighs in at 1,502 pages, according to a Senate Republican leadership source. It's still not up yet on the Finance Committee website or We'll post a link as soon as we get one.


Read the entire 1,502 page Finance bill.
Read a document outlining the concerns of Sens. Kerry, Schumer, Menendez, Stabenow and Rockefeller that the tax on high-end plans will hit plans that are not overly generous.
Read Sen. Rockefeller's expanded views on reform.

UPDATE 2:  The Senate Finance Committee filed its sweeping health care reform bill Monday and its release served largely to highlight the divisions among Democrats over the direction of reform.
The massive, 1,500 page bill is expected to serve as the backbone for Democratic reform efforts going forward and five senators expressed concerns about one of its main provisions, a 40 percent tax on high-end insurance plans.

The tax is designed to pay for reform and lower costs by making the so-called Cadillac plans less attractive for insurers to offer. Under the bill, a plan that costs an individual more than $8,000 and a family more than $21,000 annually would be subject to the tax.
But Democratic Sens. John Kerry, Chuck Schumer, Robert Menendez, Debbie Stabenow and Jay Rockefeller are concerned that the threshold that defines a Cadillac plan is too low and will whack middle-class people.

“We remain concerned that the thresholds are too low and will impact plans that are not overly generous and that in 2019 far too many plans will be impacted by the excise tax. We plan to continue to work with Chairman Baucus on this issue to ensure that provision bends the cost curve, but not at the expense of middle-income Americans,” the senators wrote in a one-page “additional views” document that was released with the bill.
The document is reminiscent of a dissent that is filed with the majority opinion in a court case.

Rockefeller filed his own 13-page additional views document that spelled out his concerns, many of which he aired during the eight-day mark up of the bill. The West Virginia Democrat remains concerns that the bill does not contain a public option; that it does not uniformly apply insurance market reforms and that state-based exchanges designed to help people buy insurance will not be as effective as a single national one.

UPDATE 3: It's important to remember that the bill won't exist in this form for long. Senate Majority Leader Reid and Sens. Max Baucus and Chris Dodd along with senior White House aides are merging the Finance and Health Committee legislation into one bill that will be considered on the floor of the Senate. The behind-closed-doors dealings have drawn criticism from Republicans, particularly because President Obama had promised a transparent process and pledged to negotiate the health care bill on C-SPAN.

Rasmussen: Support for Obamacare drops 4 Points in Two Weeks

Only forty-two percent (42%) of voters support the health care reform plans in Congress. Fifty-four percent (54%) are opposed. Forty-two percent (42%) are strongly opposed.
Rasmussen reported:

Now that the Senate Finance Committee has passed its version of health care reform, 42% of voters nationwide favor the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s down two points from a week ago and down four from the week before.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 54% are opposed to the plan.

The numbers have been remarkably stable throughout the debate. With the exception of bounces following presidential television appearances, support for the plan has stayed in a very narrow range from 41% to 46%. Currently, 24% Strongly Favor the legislative effort and 42% are Strongly Opposed.

The Problem is that neither the WH or Congress seem to care what the American people think or want.

In case you haven’t seen this or want to take another look at: Congressman Mike Rogers’ opening statement on Healthcare reform in Washington D.C.


Tonight on FOX NEWS, Dick Morris let the cat out of the bag. He exposed some hidden facts that the Obama Regime does not want YOUNG Americans to know. Here it is:

1. They will be forced to pay 8-12% of their income to cover healthcare.
2. They will be fined if they refuse to purchase healthcare.

Now, as a mom, I understand that for most people % doesn't translate too well. So here is the translation: All YOUNG Americans who earn $44,000 a year, you will cough up approximately $3,000 per year, like it or not.

If you earn $66,000 a year, you'll cough up almost $700 per month to cover your forced healthcare.

Now, I feel sorry for any American who was fooled into voting for hope and change. If this disgusting healthcare bill passes, we are all going to watch the balances in our already beleaguered checkbooks plummet. I believe I heard this correctly, but I welcome your input!

Stop the Takeover! Healthcare Freedom Call to Action!

Calling Patriots and Concerned Citizens!

We must ACT NOW to stop the government takeover of our health care.

On Tuesday, October 20th, Obama’s “Organizing for America” is hosting nationwide “Time to Deliver” call parties. Their plan is to swamp Congress with their calls and also call voters to get them to commit to calling Congress in support of Obamacare. Their goal is to get 100,000 calls to Congress placed or committed in a single day. These OFA calls cannot go unopposed. It is time to fight for our health care freedom!

It is time to put a stop to this insanity. We need to make our voices heard now before it’s too late. That is the only thing that will stop them. Call your Congressman and Senators NOW. Here’s how:
Step 1: To place a call to your Senators, go to FreedomWorks’ Online War Room at Enter your zip code, then your phone number and email address, and Freedomworks will place the call. Your phone will ring and you will be connected. If the system is not too overloaded, a congressional aide will answer, place you on hold, and return a few minutes later to take your call. Not sure what to say? Here are some helpful tips for communicating with your elected representatives:

Step 2: Go to to send emails and/or letters to your Representative and Senators. Enter your zip + 4 code or address and choose where you would like your letter sent. From the list of officials, select “federal”. Type in your letter and it will be formatted, addressed, and sent to where you direct. For an additional fee, you can opt to have your letter hand-delivered for extra impact.

Be sure to tell them:
• No government-run “public option”
• No insurance mandates
• No tax increases

Let’s start calling Congress NOW!

Good Intentions Aren't Enough with Health Care Reform

Sat at 8:57pm

Now that the Senate Finance Committee has approved its health care bill, it’s a good time to step back and take a look at the long term consequences should its provisions be enacted into law.

The bill prohibits insurance companies from refusing coverage to people with pre-existing conditions and from charging sick people higher premiums. [1] It attempts to offset the costs this will impose on insurance companies by requiring everyone to purchase coverage, which in theory would expand the pool of paying policy holders.

However, the maximum fine for those who refuse to purchase health insurance is $750. [2] Even factoring in government subsidies, the cost of purchasing a plan is much more than $750. The result: many people, especially the young and healthy, will simply not buy coverage, choosing to pay the fine instead. They’ll wait until they’re sick to buy health insurance, confident in the knowledge that insurance companies can’t deny them coverage. Such a scenario is a perfect storm for increasing the cost of health care and creating an unsustainable mandate program.

Those driving this plan no doubt have good intentions, but good intentions aren’t enough. There were good intentions behind the drive to increase home ownership for lower-income Americans, but forcing financial institutions to give loans to people who couldn’t afford them had terrible unintended consequences. We all felt those consequences during the financial collapse last year. Unintended consequences always result from top-down big government plans like the current health care proposals, and we can’t afford to ignore that fact again.

Supposedly the Senate Finance bill will be paid for by cutting Medicare by nearly half a trillion dollars and by taxing the so-called “Cadillac” health care plans enjoyed by many union members. The plan will also impose heavy taxes on insurers, pharmaceutical companies, medical device companies, and clinical labs. [3] The result of all of these taxes is clear. As Douglas Holtz-Eakin noted in the Wall Street Journal, these new taxes “will be passed on to consumers by either directly raising insurance premiums, or by fueling higher health-care costs that inevitably lead to higher premiums.” [4] Unfortunately, it will lead to lower wages too, as employees will have to sacrifice a greater percentage of their paychecks to cover these higher premiums. [5] In other words, if the Democrats succeed in overhauling health care, we’ll all bear the costs. The Senate Finance bill is effectively a middle class tax increase, and as Holtz-Eakin points out, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation those making less than $200,000 will be hit hardest. [6]

With our country’s debt and deficits growing at an alarming rate, many of us can’t help but wonder how we can afford a new trillion dollar entitlement program. The president has promised that he won’t sign a health care bill if it “adds even one dime to our deficit over the next decade.” [7] But his administration also promised that his nearly trillion dollar stimulus plan would keep the unemployment rate below 8%. [8] Last month, our unemployment rate was 9.8%, the highest it’s been in 26 years. [9] At first the current administration promised that the stimulus would save or create 3 to 4 million jobs. [10] Then they declared that it created 1 million jobs, but the stimulus reports released this week showed that a mere 30,083 jobs have been created, while nearly 3.4 million jobs have been lost since the stimulus was passed. [11] Should we believe the administration’s claims about health care when their promises have proven so unreliable about the stimulus?

In January 2008, presidential candidate Obama promised not to negotiate behind closed doors with health care lobbyists. In fact, he committed to “broadcasting those negotiations on C-SPAN so that the American people can see what the choices are. Because part of what we have to do is enlist the American people in this process. And overcoming the special interests and the lobbyists...” [12] However, last February, after serving only a few weeks in office, President Obama met privately at the White House with health care industry executives and lobbyists. [13] Yesterday, POLITICO reported that aides to President Obama and Democrat Senator Max Baucus met with corporate lobbyists in April to help “set in motion a multimillion-dollar advertising campaign, primarily financed by industry groups, that has played a key role in bolstering public support for health care reform.” [14] Needless to say, their negotiations were not broadcast on C-SPAN for the American people to see.

Presidential candidate Obama also promised that he would not “sign any nonemergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House Web site for five days.” [15] PolitiFact reports that this promise has already been broken three times by the current administration. [16] We can only hope that it won’t be broken again with health care reform.

All of this certainly gives the appearance of politics-as-usual in Washington with no change in sight.

Americans want health care reform because we want affordable health care. We don’t need subsidies or a public option. We don’t need a nationalized health care industry. We need to reduce health care costs. But the Senate Finance plan will dramatically increase those costs, all the while ignoring common sense cost-saving measures like tort reform. Though a Congressional Budget Office report confirmed that reforming medical malpractice and liability laws could save as much as $54 billion over the next ten years, tort reform is nowhere to be found in the Senate Finance bill. [17]
Here’s a novel idea. Instead of working contrary to the free market, let’s embrace the free market. Instead of going to war with certain private sector companies, let’s embrace real private-sector competition and allow consumers to purchase plans across state lines. Instead of taxing the so-called “Cadillac” plans that people get through their employers, let’s give individuals who purchase their own health care the same tax benefits we currently give employer-provided health care recipients. Instead of crippling Medicare, let’s reform it by providing recipients with vouchers so that they can purchase their own coverage.

Now is the time to make your voices heard before it’s too late. If we don’t fight for the market-oriented, patient-centered, and result-driven reform plan that we deserve, we’ll be left with the disastrous unintended consequences of the plans currently being cooked up in Washington.
