Our Side Just Won Big (health issue)
Bill Haymin



Because of Bill's increasing concerns about the serious, sobering and perilous times we are living and being manipulated into, his intentions will be mainly devoted (as he has been) to posting articles that will alert, inform, expose, and wake up a sleeping reading public. This involves the issues that are not covered, or not covered truthfully by the "National News Media." "In the time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." - George Orwell. To warn the public of the present and coming danger of permitting the federalizing of local police departments across our nation is of the utmost importance. If allowed to continue, the federalizing of local police departments, will result in the planned replication of the infamous "Nazi storm troopers" reminiscent of Hitler´s Germany in recent past history. "A prudent person foresees the danger ahead and takes precautions; the simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences." - Proverbs. 22:3 N.L.T

URGENT HEALTH FREEDOM INFORMATION.

PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY

Subscribe to the Health Freedom eAlerts

And please ask your friends to do so too.

We, the People, can whisper, speak, insist and, when we believe in our own power, we can issue forth a mighty roar at which, literally, corporate and political tyrants tremble! This week that happened twice, once in France and once in the US ! We snatched two major "People's Victories" from the jaws of two of the mightiest forces in the world: the United States Government and the Biotech Industry. Take note and take heart: "They" are vulnerable to our awareness and conscious action. We CAN change outcomes from what they want because it serves the corporate interests to what we want because it preserves health and freedom. But the more isolated and impotent we feel, the stronger they get. Well, read on! We are clearly NOT impotent and, through your Natural Solutions community, we are certainly not isolated.

To continue to win victories, you know we need your continuing tax deductible donations (http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/index.php?page_id=189).

French Score: Consumers 1, BioTech 0

France has rescinded its approval of Monsanto's 810 Maize because the efforts of a small, but determined, group of activists!

Here is the simple press release which announces, in understated terms, the victory won by activists there who have uprooted GM fields, staged marches, educated the public and, finally gone on a hunger strike. Finally, in the midst of the uproar, France rescinded its approval of Monsanto 810 Maize for animal feed.

"Press Release - (Jakarta, 12 January 2008) La Via Campesina is happy to announce that José Bové and the 15 other anti-GMO hunger strikers won a major victory yesterday with the French government's decision to ban the GMO Monsanto maize "MON 810", the only variety authorized in the country so far.

"This significant decision was taken because of the risks this genetically modified variety poses on the environment.

"The 16 French activists launched a hunger strike of indeterminate length on January 3 in order to achieve the activation of the cautionary principle, permitted by European law that allows a country to edict a moratorium on the commercialization of a genetically modified seed if new scientific evidences show that it threatens the environment.

"The international peasant's movement La Via Campesina is a strong opponent of genetically modified crops. It considers the French government's decision as a strong signal to reconsider a total ban on GMO crops in Europe and in the world.

"For more information: Josie Riffaud and Paul Nicholson : +34636451566"

France has bent a vigorous battle ground against genetically modified (GM) foods. The international peasants' organization, "La Via Campensina" (literally, "Peasant Life") has been fighting GM crops vigorously in France and elsewhere. They have gone to jail for burning GM crops in France , organized marches, informed the public and brought court actions. Earlier this month, they organized a hunger strike in France . The only GM crop approved for use in France thus far has been Monsanto's Yield Guard Corn, 810 Maize, which is genetically modified to produce a pesticide similar to the one which the bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis produces. Although the compound produced by the GM corn Monsanto 810 is billed as identical to the natural pesticide product is not. The idea is to kill the corn borer by making the whole plant poisonous. Really poisonous. Um, people eat the plant even though it was approved for use as an animal feed. People also then eat the new DNA and it gets into our own DNA. Animals, insects and bacteria also eat the pant. Isn't there something wrong with this picture?

Codex established the methods of analysis, laying the groundwork for the global approval of Monsanto 810 Maize in the 24th Session of the Codex Committee on Methods of Analysis and Sampling (CCMAS)/AD HOC Intergovernmental Task Force on Foods Derived From Biotechnology, Budapest, November 2002., ftp://ftp.fao.org/codex/ccmas24/ma02_08e.pdf.

That is, of course, not much of a surprise. Like the FDA, Codex apparently never met a GM food it did not love. There certainly is not much to love about this destructive food. Remember, the FDA does not look for safety when companies apply to bring their GM food to market. It does not even look AT safety data since it does not review or carry out safety studies. No, is a patent. And the FDA actively forbids labeling foods accurately if they contain GM components! Consumers would reject food if they knew that it was GM, said Dr. Barbara Schneeman of the FDA at last year's meeting of the Codex Working Group on the labeling of Foods Derived from Biotechnology. Therefore, she continued, when pressed to explain the US ban on accurate labeling, since the FDA has made the administrative decision that GM foods are the same as non GM ones, telling the public the truth would be "false and misleading"!

As far as Codex is concerned, the GM corn, Monsanto 810 Maize, which produces 1500-3000 times more Cry1AB toxin than the safe natural bacterial toxin, is perfectly fine for use. And, until this week when France basically used our Codex Two Step* approach, France had said it was fine, too!

Of course it is not safe for the livestock that eat it, the people that eat the livestock, the bacteria in the people's gut or in the soil, nor is it safe for insects. To read the outstanding and important letter which a group of New Zealand scientists sent to the Prime Minister of New Zealand in 2004 urging extreme caution in approving any GM foods in New Zealand , click here (http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/index.php?p=500).

The Codex Two Step is the legal strategy we developed that lets countries opt out of Codex restrictions. See www.globalhealthfreedom.org for details.

Every Victory Makes Us Stronger -

Here's Victory Number Two

In the American Spiritual, "Jacob's Ladder" the slaves told their masters through their song, "Every victory makes us stronger" and so it does. Although the fronts on which the health freedom battle is fought are many, the issues are always the same, "Who makes the decisions about what goes into MY SKIN? Is that my choice or is it the choice of some corporate-driven government bureaucrat or doctor?

Chemotherapy? Vaccination? Herbal treatments? GM Food? Biochemically effective supplements, pesticide-free food? "Organic" that means "clean and chemical free"? Health care professionals treating me the way we both agree they can treat me without the State interfering and criminalizing my health care provider? Truthful information about how food might be able to help me? The State taking my children away because it wants to drug or vaccinate them and I do not? The answers are plain to see if you love your health and you love your freedom. That means the victories are ours and for the hope of the future! Victory Number Two is about Freedom first and health second. The Real ID bill passed recently to the howls of outrage of freedom advocates (mine included) when we said that we did not want a national ID card (a prelude to control of movement within a country with huge historical precedent - like Nazi Germany and Stalin's Russian, Apartheid South Africa, for example). We also did not want an ID card with a Radio Frequency Identification Device or RFID embedded in it which could be read from afar, activated or turned off by the government or through malicious manipulation (again, from afar), encoded with all financial, medical and other personal information, etc. Bad idea. But the government seemed hell bent for leather to force us to carry these cards regardless of our desires as part of the "war on terror" (whose terror, of course, is never discussed).

But that is not the way things turned out.

"Real ID is dead in the water, and it is clear that no amount of money can save it," said ACLU Legislative Counsel Tim Sparapani." The only solution to Real ID is to scrap it, and Congress is catching on. "With seventeen states opposed to this program and the U.S. Senate standing behind them, this is the beginning of the end of Real ID..."

The Natural Solutions Foundation joined other NGO's (nongovernmental organizations or "civil society" as it is know elsewhere in the world) to educate Congress and decision makers about the dangers to health and freedom of programs like Real ID. But the program would not have been stopped but for a loud public outcry -- People Power!

This is a People's Power victory. Alone we may appear to be "voices in the wilderness" but together we are powerful!

We are heading toward a state of siege in which the "authorities" determine what you may, may not and must do with your body and your child's. This is what Dr. Ron Paul has decried as "soft Fascism." The issues at stake can be lumped together under the heading "Health Freedom" - The authority of the state ends at my skin!

In February, 2006 I published an article called "Whose Blood Sugar is it, Anyway?" (http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/docs/blood_sugar.pdf)

about the fact that if you have your blood sugar drawn in New York City, your doctor will get a letter scolding him/her if the City does not like your lab results and so will you! Vermont had already enacted the same invasive laws. (Is there any "nanny state" nonsense intervention that our regulators would think too noxious for their bureaucratic attention?) Alas, we did not rise up then and stop the process of the State Regulators taking over our bodies. So they expanded their powers considerably. This time, the time is now to take back control of our own bodies. We ignore this warning at our peril.

Frightening threats remain:

Colorado

SWAT Team Takes 11 Year Old From Family Because

They Did Not Take Him to Hospital: Docs Say "Kid's Fine!"

"Horsing around" with his sister outside their home, an 11 year old slipped and hit his head. His dad, a former paramedic, took him back into his house and observed him for signs of a concussion, standard practice in these situations, by the way. A neighbor saw the boy fall and was so alarmed that an ambulance was not called that she called the police resulting in an emergency Court Order, a SWAT team breaking down the door and menacing the family at gun point and a shooting civil liberties and parental rights in the foot at the same time. The boy was taken away terrified and shaking. He was later returned because the hospital staff said the boy was "fine". The judge admitted that if the child were his own, he would have made the decision on his own and that he would probably have done what the father in this case did: observe the boy.


New Jersey

Parental Rights Severed Without Due Process When Parents Follow Pediatrician's Advice: Specialist Miffed, 8 Month Old Put in Foster Care

A baby born with a serious birth defect called "Spinal Bifida" was under the care of his pediatrician who disagreed with the local specialist on what should be done to care for him. The baby was well and happy when his parents noted a change they were concerned by in his skin. They took the baby to the hospital where the local specialist notified the State Child Protective Services who refused to let the parents take their 8 month old child home and severed their parental rights without a court hearing or other legal proceeding.

Health Freedom Ball

"The authority of the state stops at my skin¦"

Health freedom means controlling what goes into your body, what you can, cannot, do and do not do with your own health or your kid's health. But this level of freedom is not what the people who think they are in control want for you. They want to own your body and sell you what they want you to put in it: vaccines, drugs, poisoned food.

The Natural Solutions Foundation is the largest health freedom organization in the English speaking world. It got that way in just 3 short years because we listen to you and we take your concerns to the seat of power, speaking truth to power and then finding the solutions that make that truth make a difference. We depend on you for action, for strength and for support. And we have become a power base of our own. But we are facing perilous times, indeed. To read more, click here (http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/index.php?p=496).

So now it's your turn to continue your generosity by backing a winner - Health Freedom. This is a battle we cannot afford to loose. Here's a partial list of what's at stake:

Your right to chose to be vaccinated - or not

Your right to know what's in your food, whether it's dangerous pesticides that have already been banned or cancer-friendly Genetically Modified (http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/index.php?p=495) ingredients hidden behind labels that do not list them or cloned meat and milk (http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/index.php?p=499) or virus-laced cold cuts

Your right to get organic food when you buy it, not degraded, overpriced contaminated foods masquerading as "organic" food

Your right to make your own health decisions for yourself and your child, not have the emerging police state take your kids (or you) and make them for you.

Your right to truthful information about the health benefits of foods and food components, supplements and herbs. The FDA and Codex Alimentarius (the World Food Code) want to make sure that you cannot have access to this information, even if it comes from peer reviewed scientific papers.

Your right to buy high potency nutrients of any type you like as allowed under US law. It appears some politicians and FDA agents think that the law that permits this, known by its initials, DSHEA, is the "worst" law ever passed in the United States and has vowed to undermine and overturn it. Codex compliant Europe has already accomplished this dubious "achievement."

Your right to seek medical and health care using natural means, not drugs, if you wish for yourself and your family. This right is steadily being eroded for the benefit of the drug companies.

Your right to eat food which has not been exposed to free-radical inducing x-rays or dangerous chemicals with no notice on the label of any kind (like ALL "organic", "raw" almonds and, in the near future, ALL dark green leafy vegetables and greens.

Your right to have food regulated by an agency a large part of whose operating budget does not come directly from the drug industry, as does the FDA's budget. We recommend divesting the FDA of its food safety and claims authority.

Your right to choose any sort of innovative or traditional health care practices for yourself which you choose without restriction or interference by the government.

The FDA conducts raids by special flack-jacketed FDA marshals wielding guns and batons, accompanied by dogs during destructive and terrorizing raids on legal manufacturers and practitioners.

Health Freedom is a lot like the Argentine Tango: there are so many steps and so much complexity to it that at first glance it looks like you can never master it. Then when you start looking at it closely, and mastering it by immersing yourself in it, it becomes clear that, like anything else complex, there are unifying principles and connections between the parts that make it all make sense.
