From The US Healthcase Debate: Birth is a Right. Health Care is Not!?

leave a comment »

Why Is Universal Health Care ‘Un-American’?
It’s amazing to hear Christians who talk about the right to life as though it ends at birth.
They believe every egg has a right to hatch,
but as soon as you’re born, it’s dog eat dog.

California Indentifies 30 ‘New’ Toxic Chemicals to Avoid.

with one comment

SkullandCrossBones-ChemicalThe Daily Green: Below is a list of the newly listed chemicals, how each is used, and the health issue California researchers associated with it. The grim accounting: 12 compounds that may harm the male reproductive system; 11 that may cause cancer; eight that may interfere with the normal development of fetuses, babies and children; and two that may harm the female reproductive system. (Note: Chemicals are listed twice if they have effects on more than one body system.)

Male Reproductive Toxicants

  1. n-Butyl glycidyl ether, a chemical used to make epoxy resins with a number of uses in common products
  2. Carbaryl, a household pesticide used to kill a range of insects, and sold as Sevin by GardenTech and Bayer (also a developmental toxicant)
  3. 2-Chloropropionic acid, a chemical used to make herbicides
  4. Dichloroacetic acid, which forms in drinking water as a byproduct of disinfection using chlorine
  5. Diglycidyl ether, a chemical used to make epoxy resins
  6. Ethylene oxide, a chemical mainly used in the manufacturing of chemicals like antifreeze and polyester (also a developmental toxicant)
  7. Ethyl-tert-butyl ether, a common gasoline additive
  8. Methyl chloride, a chemical used primarily to make silicone polymers, but also used in other processes, including the oil refining
  9. Methyl n-butyl ketone, an industrial solvent
  10. Phenyl glycidyl ether, an industrial chemical
  11. 1,3,5-Triglycidyl-s-triazinetrione, a constituent of some paints
  12. 4-Vinyl-cyclohexene, a chemical used in the production of epoxy resins (also a female reproductive toxicant)

Carcinogens

  1. Amsacrine, a chemotherapy drug
  2. Bleomycins, antibiotics used in chemotherapy treatments
  3. Chlorophenoxy herbicides, including 2,4-D, are common weedkillers sold for lawn and garden use
  4. Marine diesel fuel
  5. Progestins, synthetic hormones found in some birth controls
  6. Styrene, an ingredient in many plastic and foam products
  7. Toxins derived from Fusarium moniliforme (Fusarium verticillioides), a fungus
  8. Vinyl acetate, a compound used to make polymers used in plastics, films, lacquers, adhesives, inks, water-based emulsion paints, floor tiling, safety glasses, cosmetics and personal care products and other goods
  9. Wood dust
  10. Zalcitabine, an HIV drug sold as Hivid
  11. Zidovudine (AZT), an HIV drug

Developmental Toxicants

  1. Tert-Amyl methyl ether, a common fuel additive
  2. Carbaryl, a household pesticide used to kill a range of insects, and sold as Sevin by GardenTech and Bayer (also a male reproductive toxicant)
  3. Chloroform, which is used in the manufacturing of other chemicals, and which can form in drinking water as a byproduct of disinfection using chlorine
  4. N,N-dimethylacetamide, a solvent used in industries ranging from fibers and adhesives to pharmaceuticals and plasticizers
  5. Ethylene oxide, a chemical mainly used in the manufacturing of chemicals like antifreeze and polyester (also a male reproductive toxicant)
  6. 2-Ethylhexanoic acid, a chemical associated with phthalates and PVC plastics
  7. p,p’-Oxybis (benzenesulfonyl hydrazide), an industrial chemical
  8. Phenylphosphine, an industrial chemical

Female Reproductive Toxicants

  1. Toluene, a constituent of oil, is found in gasoline and is used to make paints, paint thinners, fingernail polish, lacquers, adhesives and rubber
  2. 4-Vinyl-cyclohexene, a chemical used in the production of epoxy resins (also a male reproductive toxicant)

US Health Care Spends $400 Billion on Administration Fees

leave a comment »

health_insurance_costsMedicalNewsToday: The U.S. wastes more on health care bureaucracy than it would cost to provide health care to all of the uninsured. Administrative expenses will consume at least $399.4 billion out of total health expenditures of $1,660.5 billion in 2003. Streamlining administrative overhead to Canadian levels would save approximately $286.0 billion in 2003, $6,940 for each of the 41.2 million Americans who were uninsured as of 2001. This is substantially more than would be needed to provide full insurance coverage.

bspcomment You really must ask yourself how much would be saved if insurance companies were removed entirely from the health process?

This Strain of Influenza Contains Human Viral Code Fragments

with one comment

daysarenumbered2

NaturalNews: According to reports in the mainstream media (which has no reason to lie about this particular detail), this strain of influenza contains viral code fragments from:

  • Human influenza
  • Bird Flu from North America
  • Swine flu from Europe
  • Swine flu from Asia

This is rather astonishing to realize, because for this to have been a natural combination of viral fragments, it means an infected bird from North America would have had to infect pigs in Europe, then be re-infected by those some pigs with an unlikely cross-species mutation that allowed the bird to carry it again, then that bird would have had to fly to Asia and infected pigs there, and those Asian pigs then mutated the virus once again (while preserving the European swine and bird flu elements) to become human transmittable, and then a human would have had to catch that virus from the Asian pigs — in Mexico! — and spread it to others. (This isn’t the only explanation of how it could have happened, but it is one scenario that gives you an idea of the complexity of such a thing happening).

Follow the pandemic on Google Maps and stock up! Maybe Mulder was right.

The Coming Swine Flu Pandemic

leave a comment »

Why are governments around the world waiting for this to get out of hand?

I personally know of persons in my workplace here in Canada that have recently returned from Mexico. Why haven’t governments contacted everyone who may have traveled in or out of Mexico in the last few weeks and get them tested.

Isn’t this scenario one of the biggest excuses from governments for tracking of travellers, RFID passports, etc.? Or are just full of shit and they really only wanted us to believe they had this magical power just to control us.

Healthcare Inc. Driving U.S. Healthcare System To The Brink of Collapse.

leave a comment »

sicko PBS – FRONTLINE: As the worsening economy leads to massive job losses-potentially forcing millions more Americans to go without health insurance-FRONTLINE travels the country examining the nation’s broken health care system and explores the need for a fundamental overhaul. Veteran FRONTLINE producer Jon Palfreman dissects the private insurance system, a system that not only fails to cover 46 million Americans but also leaves millions more underinsured and at risk of bankruptcy.

usmedicalcoveragestatsFor some Americans, life becomes a quest to find and keep health insurance. In 1994, Nikki White, a Bristol, Tenn., native with dreams of becoming a doctor, was diagnosed with lupus, a serious but treatable autoimmune disorder. Too ill to work, she lost her health insurance for several years, but then received coverage from the state’s Medicaid program. Soon, budget cuts made her ineligible for the state program. A few months later, White was rushed to the ER with severe lupus complications and racked up nearly $1 million in medical bills. She finally secured insurance under the government HIPPA law, but her condition was too advanced, and in 2006, at the age of 32, she died. White’s primary care physician, Amylyn Crawford, tells FRONTLINE: “Nikki didn’t die from lupus. Nikki died secondary to the complications of a failing health care system.”

bspcommentWhile U.S. banks, insurance companies and investment firms get TRILLION$ in taxpayer bailouts, the taxpayers themselve get nothing. A for-profit healthcare system driven to the very brink of destruction by the same profiteering scum that continue to pile drive the world’s economy into the ground. It is absolutely shameful that Amercians are literally dying from the type of neglect the world has not seen since the dark ages. But then again maybe that’s the point. HOPE? CHANGE?
