The Slippery Slope: If Facebook bans content that questions vaccine dogma, will it soon ban articles about toxic chemotherapy, fluoride and pesticides, too?

In accordance with the company’s ongoing efforts to censor all truth while promoting only establishment fake news on its platform, social media giant Facebook has decided to launch full-scale war against online free speech about vaccines.

Pandering to the demands by California Democrat Adam Schiff, Mark Zuckerberg and his team recently announced that they are now “exploring additional measures to best combat the problem” of Facebook users discussing and sharing information about how vaccines are harming and killing children via social media.

According to an official statement released by Facebook, the Bay Area-based corporation is planning to implement some changes to the platform in the very near future that may include “reducing or removing this type of content from recommendations, including Groups You Should Join, and demoting it in search results, while also ensuring that higher quality and more authoritative information is available.”

In other words, the only acceptable form of online speech pertaining to vaccines that will be allowed on Facebook is speech that conforms to whatever the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says is “accurate” and “scientific.” Anything else, even if it comes from scientific authorities with a differing viewpoint, will be classified as false by Facebook, and consequently demoted or removed.

Facebook’s censorship tactics are becoming more nefarious by the day. To keep up with the latest news, be sure to check out Censorship.news.

Facebook is quickly becoming the American government’s ministry of propaganda

Facebook’s rationale, of course, is that it’s simply looking out for the best interests of users who might be “misled” by information shared in Facebook groups suggesting that the MMR vaccine for measles, mumps, and rubella, as one example, isn’t nearly as safe as government health authorities claim.

And that’s just it: There are many things that the government is wrong about, but that have been officially sanctioned as “truth” by government propagandists. If Facebook bows down to these government hacks with regards to vaccines, there’s no telling what the company will try to ban from its platform in the future.

As we saw in the case of Cassandra C. from Connecticut, the government actually forced this young girl to undergo chemotherapy against her will, claiming that the “treatment” was absolutely necessary to “cure” her of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Not only did the government deny young Cassandra the right to make her own medical decisions, but it also overrode the will of her parents, who also opposed taking the chemotherapy route. In essence, the government forced Cassandra to undergo chemotherapy at gunpoint, and now it’s trying to do the exact same thing with Facebook.

If little Adam Schiff is successful at forcing Facebook to only allow information on its platform that conforms with the official government position on vaccines, the next step will be to outlaw the sharing of information on the platform about the dangers of chemotherapy, as well as the dangers of fluoride, pesticides, and other deadly chemicals that the government has deemed as “safe and effective.”

Soon there won’t be any free speech at all on Facebook, assuming the social media giant actually obeys this latest prompting by the government to steamroll people’s First Amendment rights online. And where will it end?

“The real national emergency is the fact that Democrats have power over our lives,” warns Mike Adams, the Health Ranger.

“These radical Leftists are domestic terrorists and suicidal cultists … they are the Stasi, the SS, the KGB and the Maoists rolled all into one. They absolutely will not stop until America as founded is completely ripped to shreds and replaced with an authoritarian communist-leaning regime run by the very same tyrants who tried to carry out an illegal political coup against President Trump.”

New evidence suggests the government is using NASA to air drop Lithium on the masses


Need your mood tweaked a bit? Just step outside under the gaze of a chemtrail and inhale deeply. In addition to the barium, strontium, the nano bio apps and other assorted toxins, you’ll be ingesting a chemically tweaked Lithium, long known as a drug used for bi-polar disorder, depression and eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia. Gee, you won’t have to endure any more twenty minute sessions with your psychiatrist, am I right? Just walk outside under the haze and take a breath. Waking times has the story:

“There’s the official explanation for why NASA is spraying lithium, a pharmaceutical drug most often used to treat people with manic depression or bi-polar disorder, into our ionosphere, and then there is the probable reason(s). It would be easier to accept NASA’s official explanation if they were not so secretive about everything they study and do in space – but one thing is for certain – NASA’s own personnel have admitted that lithium, along with other chemicals, are intentionally being placed into our environment regularly. It is possible that many of NASA’s own employees aren’t even aware of the true motivations for carrying out such a project, ironically displaying the very behaviors that these chemicals/pharmaceuticals are meant to instill.

Image: New evidence suggests the government is using NASA to air drop Lithium on the masses

“In the first bomb-shell video a NASA employee (Douglas.e.rowland@nasa.gov) admits that lithium is being sprayed in the atmosphere, and says that it is ‘harmless to the environment.’”

It’s important to distinguish a difference between the type of chemically endowed Lithium force fed by sociopaths and the natural lithium found in most rocks on the earth.

The Global Healing Center reports:

“… Lithium is a naturally occurring mineral from the earth. Just like calcium and potassium, lithium is something that every human body requires.

“Many people are familiar with the pharmaceutical forms of lithium (lithium carbonate and lithium citrate), these aforementioned chemical extracts used to treat mania and depression.

“Lithium orotate is different. Whereas pharmaceutical drug forms of lithium require high doses to penetrate cells, lithium orotate is effective in extremely small serving sizes. Unlike its pharmaceutical counterparts, lithium orotate is non-toxic and seems to be effective for 70% to 80% of people who try it… Lithium [oratate] has been shown to protect the system from numerous toxins, particularly in the grey matter of the brain.”

Unfortunately, as with most decisions from the brotherhood of darkness, the kind of lithium being strewn about in the heavens is the medicating kind.

As reported by Waking Times:

“Here, to corroborate information being given by the NASA employee in the video, is the  Code 8440 RMMO which states the exact purpose of using Wallops Flight Facility to launch a rocket containing lithium thermite:

‘Purpose: The primary purpose of this mission was to test the loading methods for lithium canisters to be flown on the upcoming Kudeki (Kwajalein, April 2013) and Pfaff (Wallops, June 2013) missions, and verify their functionality under sounding rocket launch and space flight conditions.

Rocket Type:Two-stage Terrier MK70 Improved-Orion

Location:Wallops Range

Launcher:MRL

Date of Launch:January 29, 2013

Time:17:50 EST

Experiment results:Thermistor data looked nominal. Good report from airborne optical platform of recorded video and lithium clouds also visible by ground observation.’

… If you wanted to medicate the masses to create mindless, slave-like prisoners who didn’t even know they were imprisoned, this is surely a good way to do it. Spraying lithium into our skies, along with countless other bacteria, viruses, prions, parasites, fungi, carcinogens, toxins, hormone-altering drugs, anti-flora and anti-fauna, as well as gene-altering micro-dust is nothing more than bio-warfare against the world’s citizenry.”

Let’s not forget the assault on our food, either.

The US government still uses floppy disks.


The federal government is a complicated behemoth that takes a long time to change course. With technology changing faster than ever, it’s no surprise that government regulation and human stubbornness are slowing the transition to new methods. In fact, one government agency still requires parts of the government to submit information on floppy disks.

pile of floppy disks

The Federal Register is basically a daily update on the activities of the federal government. It aggregates all the orders, rule changes, and notices issued by various agencies and publishes them online and in paper form. This fulfills a requirement that the information be made available for public inspection, but the way the Federal Register gets all that information is odd.

Agencies are required to submit multiple certified copies of each document, which they can do multiple ways. Some still send over paper documents, but others provide digital files to the Register. However, the Register won’t accept a thumbdrive or SD card — it’s only floppy or CD, and a surprising number of agencies still send over 3.5-inch floppies. Where are they even finding floppy drives anymore?

There is also a much more modern secure email system for providing files, but moving to this platform is a big expensive change that many agencies haven’t made yet. The alternative, apparently, is to continue using technology from the 80s. There is hope that the issues surrounding the healthcare.gov website launch will prompt agencies to modernize, but it might take an act of congress to mandate the use of new tehcnology like the secure email system. So, all we need is for congress to come together and do away with floppy disks in the federal government. If there’s anything that can bring the two sides together, surely it is a disdain for floppy disks.

 

How My Whole Life Changed Because of One Simple Thing.


“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” ~ T. S. Eliot

After living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for 2 years, I am home again… the same place where I returned in the fall of 2009 after living in U.S. for 3 years, the place where I was born and raised, Suceava, Romania.

Things have changed so much since 2009, and so did I.

I remember how lost and how confused I used to feel back then, not knowing who I was, what I wanted to do with my life and which direction to take.

It’s incredible how much things can change in just a couple of years and how your whole life can change because of one simple thing.

I remember like it was yesterday how I used to sit down at this cute table we have in the living room, and write in my “dream notebooks” about the many things I wanted to be, do and have if there were no limits to what I could achieve.

“Become a very happy, confident, fierce, strong, kind, generous, gentle, honest person, always feeling and looking amazing.

Have a strong, healthy and beautiful body.

Understand, accept and love myself and others.

Happy and content with the way I look and feel.

I touch lives and help people change the way they think and live their lives…

Meditate at least 2 times per week, exercise.

I have attracted, and still do, wonderful and supportive friends, loving and positive people that encourage and help me grow.

I work with people from around the world who are in need for a change. They need to change their lives in order to be happy and I help them do just that.

I am grateful for my life, for who I am and for how happy my life is.

I only focus on having positive and powerful thoughts, nothing else.

Be present in the NOW!

Because I am living life in an authentic way, people are drawn to me.

Travel around the world.

Embrace my inner child. Be playful.

Live life my own way. Stop chasing approval outside yourself.

I no longer care about other people’s approval. My approval is the only approval I need.

Make my own rules. 

Overcome the fear of dying.

Incorporate photography and personal development in your work.

Work on writing powerful and life changing books.

Change the way you think about age.

I am at peace with myself and the world around me.

I am not afraid to take risks. If I don’t take risks I will live a sedentary, unfulfilled life, feeling depressed and down… feeling unhappy and incomplete… “

and these are some of the things I wrote on my “dream notebooks”. The simple act of writing down my dreams has changed my whole life for the better.

It’s because of this simple thing that I am no longer the lost, scared and insecure girl I used to be but rather a happy, confident, fierce, strong, kind, generous and loving person.

I traveled in the last 2 years like I never traveled in my whole life (see pictures bellow). I made so many new and wonderful friends, people whom I love and adore and who encourage and support me in everything I do.

I used to be afraid of growing older and terrified of dying. Not anymore!

Now I know that age is just a number and because of that it no longer matters how old I am. In fact, I am excited to grow “older” because I know that as years will go by, my life will get better and better and I will grow wiser.

As far as death is concern… because I am living life fully, I am no longer afraid of dying. In fact, I love to talk about death just as much as I love to talk about life.

A lot of things have changed since then and the best part about this whole list is the fact that at that time I had no idea how was I going to incorporate photography and personal development in my work. The funny thing is that I ended up creating the PurposeFairy blog, this beautiful baby that I love so much, which is all about personal development and the photos I use are all photos taken by me.

And it doesn’t end here. While I was in Malaysia, I worked in Mindvalley as a Product Development Creative Lead, working with authors like Burt Goldman, Laura Silva, Mike Dooley, Lee Holden and many others on creating personal development products.

This year I was also a photographer at Awesomeness Fest, Bali, one of the most incredible and impactful personal growth & entrepreneurship events in the world and in November I will go to A-Fest Dominican Republic where I will be a photographer and a speaker.

How funny is that?

I am also working on my first book (it’s taking a bit longer that I expected) which will most likely be published by the biggest book publisher in the world.

So many wonderful things have happened to me in these last 4 years and it was all because in the fall of 2009, I decided to write down the things I wanted from life, and then take the necessary action steps to move myself in that direction.

I am not sharing all of these things to brag, but rather to inspire you to do the same.

I know that there is something very special in each and one of us and I know that stories have the power, and I hope my story will inspire you to to write your own list of dreams and goals, and to dare to make them all come true.

Adverse respiratory effects associated with cadmium exposure in small-scale jewellery workshops in India.


Abstract

Background Cadmium (Cd) is an important metal with both common occupational and environmental sources of exposure. Although it is likely to cause adverse respiratory effects, relevant human data are relatively sparse.

Methods A cross-sectional study of 133 workers in jewellery workshops using Cd under poor hygienic conditions and 54 referent jewellery sales staffs was performed. We assessed symptoms, performed spirometry, measured urinary Cd levels in all study subjects and quantified airborne total oxidant contents for 35 job areas in which the studied workforce was employed. We tested the association of symptoms with exposure relative to the unexposed referents using logistic regression analysis, and tested the association between urinary Cd levels and lung function using multiple regression analysis, adjusting for demographics, smoking and area-level airborne oxidants.

Results Exposed workers had 10 times higher urinary Cd values than referents (geometric mean 5.8 vs 0.41 µg/dl; p<0.01). Of the exposed subjects, 75% reported respiratory tract symptoms compared with 33% of the referents (OR=3.1, 95% CI 1.4 to 7.3). Forced vital capacity (FVC) and forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1) were also lower among the exposed workers than the referents (>600 ml decrement for each, p<0.001). For every 1 µg increase in urinary Cd there was a 34 ml decrement in FVC and a 39 ml decrement in FEV1(p<0.01), taking into account other covariates including workplace airborne oxidant concentrations.

Conclusions This cohort of heavily exposed jewellery workers experienced frequent respiratory symptoms and manifested a marked deficit in lung function, demonstrating a strong response to Cd exposure.

Exposure to pesticides or solvents and risk of Parkinson disease.


ABSTRACT

Objective: To investigate the risk of Parkinson disease (PD) associated with exposure to pesticides and solvents using meta-analyses of data from cohort and case-control studies.

Methods: Prospective cohort and case-control studies providing risk and precision estimates relating PD to exposure to pesticides or solvents or to proxies of exposure were considered eligible. The heterogeneity in risk estimates associated with objective study quality was also investigated.

Results: A total of 104 studies/3,087 citations fulfilled inclusion criteria for meta-analysis. In prospective studies, study quality was not a source of heterogeneity. PD was associated with farming and the association with pesticides was highly significant in the studies in which PD diagnosis was self-reported. In case-control studies, study quality appeared to be a source of heterogeneity in risk estimates for some exposures. Higher study quality was frequently associated with a reduction in heterogeneity. In high-quality case-control studies, PD risk was increased by exposure to any-type pesticides, herbicides, and solvents. Exposure to paraquat or maneb/mancozeb was associated with about a 2-fold increase in risk. In high-quality case-control studies including an appreciable number of cases (>200), heterogeneity remained significantly high (>40%) only for insecticides, organochlorines, organophosphates, and farming; also, the risk associated with rural living was found to be significant.

Conclusions: The literature supports the hypothesis that exposure to pesticides or solvents is a risk factor for PD. Further prospective and high-quality case-control studies are required to substantiate a cause-effect relationship. The studies should also focus on specific chemical agents.

DISCUSSION

Exposure to pesticides and solvents appears to be a risk factor for PD. Our evidence also supports the involvement of specific compounds, such as paraquat, maneb/mancozeb family, as well as proxies of exposure. However, it could be argued that the evidence collected is still limited, or at least inconclusive, because there was no definitive agreement between cohort and case-control studies.

Indeed, most of the evidence found relied on data from case-control studies. To investigate an etiologic relationship, the use of cohort studies is preferable. However, the incidence of PD is low and usually occurs in the elderly; large populations, a large number of cases, and a long follow-up are required to achieve adequate statistical power. Accordingly, most neuroepidemiologists resort to case-control studies, which are practical and, despite their retrospective nature, have the advantage of more detailed exposure assessment.

We have also partly explained the sources of heterogeneity in individual study results. In prospective studies, differences in estimates of exposure to pesticides appeared to depend on the method of ascertainment of PD. This factor is less likely to have been a source of bias in case-control studies because, although different sets of well-accepted diagnostic criteria were used, in most cases secondary causes of PD were excluded in patients recruited at movement disorders clinics. However, we did not assess the effect of this feature and we recognize that this is a possible limitation of our study. Heterogeneity in case-control studies appeared to be due mainly to study quality and size. With respect to study quality, our results are consistent with previous suggestions.e86 However, the issue of sample size analysis was addressed by only a few authors.e25,e60,e66,e80 To detect an OR of 2 and an exposure frequency of 20% we calculated that at least 200 case-control pairs would be needed.

A meta-analysis investigating several sources of heterogeneity in risk estimates has recently shown that study design (case-control vs prospective), source of controls (community vs non-community controls), type of exposure (occupational vs non-occupational/others type), adjustment for potential confounders, or geographical area do not appear to be important determinants. Accordingly, no consistent explanation of heterogeneity has been provided. The only factor that appeared to contribute was the method used for exposure assessment, as the use of job title–based exposure matrix resulted in a higher risk than assignment based on self-reported exposure.17 Unfortunately, this method could not be applied with sufficient accuracy to specific working occupations.

Despite our methodologic approach to quantitative synthesis, notable heterogeneity, probably affecting the evidence of an increased risk associated with exposure, was still present for insecticides, organochlorines, organophosphates, and farming. There are some possible explanations for this observation. With respect to farming, we observed that exposure was assessed either by open questions or by specific industry coding systems. Moreover, the choice of controls may introduce bias. Few studies have considered the effect of geography (area/region of residence; the additional criteria for “comparability” in our quality assessment process) in study design or adjustment of analyses. Regional controls may be preferable for the evaluation of direct exposure but both these and neighboring areas may affect the assessment of risk associated with this proxy measure of exposure. Insecticides are a heterogeneous class of compounds to which most organochlorines and organophosphates belong. Indeed, among organochlorines the most frequently used insecticide is DDT and the risk associated with this compound was found to be nonsignificant. In some cases, frequency of exposure is low and there may be difficulties in recalling specific product names. Given the advanced age of patients with PD, impairment of cognitive function is possible. Although poor cognition has been considered as an exclusion criterion during recruitment in some studies, only one research group adjusted for this covariate.e63,e68 Exposure to insecticides also appears to be closely correlated with exposure to herbicides.16

Finally, there may be residual confounders that we were not able to address. In some cases, data derived from proxy respondents were pooled with those reported by cases,29,e10,e44,e51,e79,e84 probably introducing misclassification bias.e6,e8

Confounding also could be secondary to the use of protective equipment and compliance with suggested, or even recommended, preventive practices. Only one study addressed this issue.26 Prevalent exposure was heterogeneous among the populations investigated and was likely to be higher in certain working categories. Inclusion bias should be taken into consideration, because in some studies selection of cases or controls was performed by linking to professional and insurance databases26,e7,e15,e38,e39,e45,e63,e68,e77,e79,e84 or in geographical areas characterized by extensive use of pesticides. A few studies investigated the role of genetic susceptibility. Although mechanisms of action at the molecular level are largely unknown, there is a growing body of evidence progressively substantiating the hypothesis of a gene–environment interaction.14 Finally, positive exposure was defined according to different levels (e.g., number of chemicals or times of usage over a period), types (particularly for toxin application), or durations.

The present study highlights unresolved issues with implications for health policies. From a preventive perspective, we observed that the route of exposure (e.g., inhaled or transcutaneous) and the method of toxin application (e.g., spraying or mixing) has never been investigated. Risk appears to increase as the duration of exposure increases. Since several compounds are likely to be used by the same people, different routes of exposure may act synergistically in increasing the risk. Unfortunately, it was not possible to investigate the issue of a dose–response relationship and to provide a cutoff for exposure.

The literature supports the hypothesis that exposure to pesticides or solvents is a risk factor for PD. However, further prospective and high-quality case-control studies are required to substantiate a cause-effect relationship. Although some compounds have been withdrawn from the market in industrialized countries, they are still in use in developing parts of the world. According to our review of the sources of funding, interest in this issue should come also from chemicals manufacturers. This should be emphasized because an interest in the adverse effects of specific compounds appears justified.

Early and long-term excess mortality in 227 patients with intracranial dural arteriovenous fistulas.


Abstract

OBJECT

The aim of this study was to assess the early and long-term excess mortality in patients with intracranial dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) compared with a matched general Finnish population in an unselected, population-based series.

METHODS

The authors identified 227 patients with DAVFs admitted to 2 of the 5 Departments of Neurosurgery in FinlandHelsinki and Kuopio University Hospitals—between 1944 and 2006. All patients were followed until death or the end of 2009. Long-term excess mortality was estimated using the relative survival ratio compared with the general Finnish population matched by age, sex, and calendar year.

RESULTS

The median follow-up period was 10 years (range 0–44 years). Two-thirds (67%) of the DAVFs were located in the region of transverse and sigmoid sinuses. Cortical venous drainage (CVD) was present in 28% of the DAVFs (18% transverse and sigmoid sinus, 42% others). Of the 61 deaths counted, 11 (18%) were during the first 12 months and were mainly caused by treatment complications (5 of 11, 45%). The 1-year survivors presenting with hemorrhage experienced excess mortality until 7 years from admission. However, DAVFs with CVD were associated with significant, continuous excess mortality. There were more cerebrovascular and cardiovascular deaths in this group of patients than expected in the general Finnish population. Location other than transverse and sigmoid sinuses was also associated with excess mortality.

CONCLUSIONS

In the patients with DAVF there was excess mortality during the first 12 months, mainly due to treatment complications. Thereafter, their overall long-term survival became similar to that of the matched general population. However, DAVFs with CVD and those located in regions other than transverse and sigmoid sinuses were associated with marked long-term excess mortality after the first 12 months.

13,000 cancer deaths ‘can be prevented’.


run

At least 13,000 premature deaths from cancer could be prevented each year in the UK, says the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF).

It says the government could do more to raise awareness of how people can reduce their cancer risk.

The announcement comes as a survey showed that a third of Britons still believe that developing cancer is due to fate.

About 157,000 people die of cancer every year in the UK.

Although the mortality rate is predicted to continue declining, due to a growing and ageing population the number of deaths is expected to rise to about 182,000 deaths by 2025.

The WCRF survey of more than 2,000 adults suggested that 28% of people think there is little that can be done to prevent cancer.

Cancer myths

But Dr Kate Allen, executive director of science and public affairs at WCRF, said: “These results are a real concern because they show that a significant proportion of people don’t realise that there’s a lot they can do to reduce their risk of cancer.

“By eating healthily, being physically active and keeping to a healthy weight, we estimate that about a third of the most common cancers could be prevented.

“Everyone has a role to play in preventing cancer but governments and health professionals are key to raising awareness and making it easier for individuals to change their lifestyle habits.”

The Union for International Cancer Control, a non-governmental organisation working across 155 countries, estimates that 1.5 million lives could be saved worldwide if urgent action is taken to raise awareness about cancer.

Otherwise, it says, there could be six million premature cancer deaths by 2025.

The UICC and the WCRF want governments and the public to dispel four important myths and misconceptions about cancer, namely that cancer is just a health issue, that it is a disease of the wealthy, developed countries, that it is a death sentence and that getting cancer is down to fate.
