Depleted Uranium- Health and environment

Leuren Moret is an international radiation specialist, with a B.S. degree in geology from University of California at Davis, a M.A. degree in Near Eastern studies from University of California at Berkeley and has done post-graduate work in the geosciences at UC-Davis. She is environmental commissioner for the City of Berkeley, Calif.

“My grandfather, U.S. Army Col. Edwin Joseph McAllister, was born in Battle Creek in 1895. He does not know that his first grandchild is an international expert on depleted uranium. I have worked in two U.S. nuclear weapons laboratories, and in 1991 I became a whistleblower at the Livermore lab. Depleted uranium is very, very, very nasty stuff:

# Depleted uranium (DU) weaponry meets the definition of weapon of mass destruction in two out of three categories under U.S. Federal Code Title 50 Chapter 40 Section 2302.

# DU weaponry violates all international treaties and agreements, Hague and Geneva war conventions, the 1925 Geneva gas protocol, U.S. laws and U.S. military law.

# Since 1991, the U.S. has released the radioactive atomicity equivalent of at least 400,000 Nagasaki bombs into the global atmosphere. That is 10 times the amount released during atmospheric testing which was the equivalent of 40,000 Hiroshima bombs. The U.S. has permanently contaminated the global atmosphere with radioactive pollution having a half-life of 2.5 billion years.

# The U.S. has illegally conducted four nuclear wars in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and twice in Iraq since 1991, calling DU “conventional” weapons when in fact they are nuclear weapons.

# DU on the battlefield has three effects on living systems: it is a heavy metal “chemical” poison, a “radioactive” poison and has a “particulate” effect due to the very tiny size of the particles that are 0.1 microns and smaller.

# The blueprint for DU weaponry is a 1943 Manhattan Project memo to Gen. L. Groves that recommended development of radioactive materials as poison gas weapons – dirty bombs, dirty missiles and dirty bullets.

# DU weapons are very effective kinetic energy penetrators, but even more effective bioweapons since uranium has a strong chemical affinity for phosphate structures concentrated in DNA.

# DU is the Trojan Horse of nuclear war – it keeps giving and keeps killing. There is no way to clean it up, and no way to turn it off because it continues to decay into other radioactive isotopes in over 20 steps.

# Terry Jemison at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs stated in August 2004 that over 518,000 Gulf-era veterans (14-year period) are now on medical disability, and that 7,039 were wounded on the battlefield in that same period. Over 500,000 U.S. veterans are homeless.

# In some studies of soldiers who had normal babies before the war, 67 percent of the post-war babies are born with severe birth defects – missing brains, eyes, organs, legs and arms, and blood diseases.

# In southern Iraq, scientists are reporting five times higher levels of gamma radiation in the air, which increases the radioactive body burden daily of inhabitants. In fact, Iraq, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan are uninhabitable.

# Cancer starts with one alpha particle under the right conditions. One gram of DU is the size of a period in this sentence and releases 12,000 alpha particles per second.

Before my grandfather died, he told me that his generation had made a mess of this planet. I wonder what he would say to me now I would tell him to see “Beyond Treason” a new documentary about the history of treason by the U.S. government against our own troops: Atomic veterans, MK-Ultra, Agent Orange and DU.

After Vietnam, Henry Kissinger said, “Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy. . .

(from Chapter 5 in the “Final Days” by Woodward and Bernstein).

I feel that if military men who put their lives down for the nation, are seen as dumb stupid animals by “top” politicians such as Kissinger, then the civillian population must have even less worth in the eyes of such influential/powerful politicians…

If I extrapulate this a little further .. em then the thought that 911 was an inside job can be entertained in our minds as a possibility….?


Be Just And Fear Not

Be Just And Fear Not

These were the words on the teacups I drank out of every morning before going to school. My father brought them from a market we (my sister and brothers) as kids called  katchra market..meaning cheap junk market. It was just an ordinary open market…..My high caste position in India was still embedded into my psyche and I looked down on the life I found myself experiencing…

I am extremely grateful for the Mantra like effect these words had on me from my early teens.


A look at censorship in environment and public health

http://www.bmartin.cc/pubs/01ceenv.html

Below is an excerpt from the above article.

“Corporations have an obvious incentive to prevent release of information about their activities that damage health or the environment, but sometimes government bodies develop just as strong an interest. For example, many government agriculture departments have become enthusiastic advocates of pesticides and have tried to cover up or discredit contrary information.

Unethical public relations can be considered the civilian equivalent of military disinformation. Corporations have used various techniques to undermine and discredit critics pointing to environmental and health problems, including spying, buying support from experts, cover-ups, lying and payments to journalists. To limit the impact of unwelcome books, there are cases of covert disruption of speaking tours and dissemination of damaging material to media outlets. David Steinman’s 1990 book Diet for a Poisoned Planet was subject to this sort of treatment.

Another technique used by corporations is the silencing “agreement”. When workers or citizens sue manufacturers over the health effects of their work processes or products, the corporation may settle out of court–with the condition that details of the case remain secret, including claims of harm, the size of the payout and company documents provided as part of the case.

A third type of interest group responsible for much censorship in environment and public health is professions, especially the medical profession. The classic example is the response of doctors to Ignác Semmelweis, who beginning in the 1840s advocated antiseptic handwashing by obstetricians to reduce the high rate of maternal death during childbirth due to puerperal fever. Semmelweis was ignored, dismissed and misrepresented.

Standard cancer treatments are surgery, radiation and chemicals. Those who criticise these approaches or promote alternative therapies or theories, such as vitamin C or bacterial theories, are marginalised by techniques including denying research funds, cutting off grants, blocking publications and dismissing researchers. The American Cancer Society compiled a list of “unproven methods” of cancer management in order to discredit alternatives, although some of them had shown positive results whereas, in comparison, many standard therapies had not been shown to be effective.

The dental profession’s promotion of fluoridation has used similar techniques. Referees have tried to block certain articles because they might help antifluoridationists. Dentists who have spoken out against fluoridation have been threatened with reprisals and sometimes deregistered. Scientists have had research funds removed. In the 1960s, the Journal of the American Dental Association published a dossier on antifluoridationists, including much dubious material, and used it to discredit scientists and doctors opposed to fluoridation.

The theory that AIDS arose from contaminated polio vaccines used in Africa in the 1950s is very threatening to the medical research establishment. Articles and letters outlining the theory were refused publication at several medical and scientific journals. The developer of the vaccine, Hilary Koprowski, sued authors and media outlets for defamation, thereby stopping discussion of the theory.

The legal system has often been used to stop discussion of environmental and health issues. In the so-called McLibel case, Helen Steel and Dave Morris were sued by McDonald’s over a critical leaflet. Numerous US citizens have been sued by corporations for writing letters, signing petitions or making media statements about environmental and health issues (among others); these sorts of legal actions are now commonly called Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation or SLAPPs. They are a form of harassment that inhibits people from speaking out, and are also used in some other countries. In a number of US states, there are “food disparagement laws” that prohibit criticisms of certain foods.”



So, how long can you go without food? :)

Below link is a story of a Hindu yogi (holy man). It is claimed he has not eaten for 70 years approx!

When the below video was filmed he had been under medical supervision for over a hundred hours… he had not excreted liquid or solid waste… (and not eaten too).. during this time.

He says he lives on Pranic energy through meditation.

Dr David Servan-Schreiber-How he survived cancer

Morning all. Sorry have not posted in a while..

I hope you all find the below video  usefull.

Last week my local  policeman gave me a book and told me I think you will find this interesting. It is called “Una Nueva forma de vida” (A new way of life)

The book was in Spanish and it was by Dr David Servan-Schreiber. I thought fine I will just google him.. saved me struggling through a book over 300 pages! (My Spanish is not brilliant)

I really like and respect the way in which he has told his story.

It should be of interest to those who need modern science to approve certain cancer therapies/ attitudes/ beliefs that are not presently  approved of by most of modern habit, thought and medicine.

They approve a pharmaceutical approach and that is what most of humanity believe in…

I really pray that humanity are willing and open to look beyond the horizon of their present truth.

Modern medicine is great in certain circumstances, like accidents and emergencies. I have immense respect for the medical staff in such situations.

Many of the doctors that I have come across have been very committed to helping their patients. I was once one such patient and I am grateful to them.

But I also realise that their commitment or sincerity was not at flaw  but some of the education  was/is flawed for sure..

By the way I don’t think David has all the answers.

He goes a fair way with a better lifestyle but in my book he does not go far enough.. From his experience it has got him many years of  life and that is great.

I am mighty glad that he is using this personal experience teamed with his medical background to bring a greater awareness of health.

I wish him success and hope that the truth he is sharing does not result in him being de-registered as is the case of many doctors who dare to speak their truth.
