‘Donald Trump’s revised American Health Care Act (AHCA) – the Republican’s replacement for Obamacare – would leave 23 million Americans without health insurance by 2026, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has found.

The number is a slight reduction from the 24 million Americans who were forecast to lose insurance under a previous version of the bill. This version of the bill will also reduce the federal deficit by $32 billion less than the previous draft.

The AHCA has been the centre of fierce political debate since the CBO released their first estimate in March. The claim that millions of Americans could lose coverage was one reason the bill was pulled from a House vote that month, and forced into rushed revisions.’

”The drug industry buys the professors first, then chiefs of department, then the other chief physicians and so on. They don’t buy junior doctors.’ –Dr Peter Gøtzsche

Big Pharma drugs kill around 200,000 Americans every year – half of them die while doing what their doctors told them. Sadly, the side effects and medical errors combine to cause the 3rd leading cause of death in America.

Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD is a Danish medical researcher and the author of Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How Big Pharma has Corrupted Healthcare.

In this video interview courtesy of Dr. John McDougall, he exposes how the pharmaceutical companies stealthily act as an organized crime ring unbeknownst to the consumer.’

‘The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has allowed the electroshock therapy (ECT) device to remain on the market without requiring clinical studies proving safety and efficacy, and is considering the American Psychiatric Association’s written proposal to expand ECT’s use on the general public, including on children.

According to the FDA’s mission statement, the FDA “is responsible for protecting the public health by ensuring the safety” and “efficacy” of medical products, including “medical devices” (the ECT device included).

Due to the documented risks attributed to ECT, we are calling on the FDA to prohibit its use.’

‘North America is in the midst of a drug overdose disaster. In British Columbia, Canada, where nearly 1,000 people died of overdose in 2016, officials have declared a public health emergency. The Conversation

While over-prescription of painkillers and contamination of the illegal opioid supply by fentanyl, a potent synthetic analgesic, are at the heart of the problem, opioid users are not the only ones at risk. Public health officials in BC are warning that fentanyl has been detected in many drugs circulating on the illicit market, including crack cocaine.

The possibility of opioid overdose is an unusual new threat for people who use crack, which is a stimulant. Its consumption, either through smoking or injection, is not necessarily deadly.’

‘Critical thinkers and knowledgeable readers who have no ulterior motivation to blindly promote current over-vaccination agendas will agree that the Somali parents who have witnessed the devastating epidemic of Autistic Spectrum Disorders decimate so many of their children since coming to Minnesota, made a wise choice in refusing MMR vaccinations.

The Somali community has seen an alarming incidence of ASD (currently 1 out of every 32 of their children are afflicted, the worst prevalence rate in any Minnesota demographic group, even exceeding the 1 out of 48 among the fully vaccinated white male children in Minnesota). Recall that concurrent with the alarming epidemic of ASD was a dramatic increase in live virus vaccines, mercury-containing vaccine and aluminum-containing vaccines. The incidence of ASD before 1986 (when the vaccine industry was exempted from liability for vaccine deaths or injuries) was 1 in every 10,000 Minnesotan children and the rate went to 1 out of 68 by the time the number of antigens injected routinely into Minnesotan children went from a dozen or so to upwards of 80!

Something more than coincidence is at work. As noted vaccine researcher Dr Christopher Shaw has stated: “Parents refusing to vaccinate according to the recommended CDC schedule are supported by the science.”’

‘News outlets are reporting a new Ebola outbreak in Africa. Here is a quick summary of the basic mainstream story—

The Huffington Post cites a World Health Organization (WHO) statement: four people are believed to have died from Ebola in the Congo.

There are 37 more “suspected cases.”

Discussions are underway about using an “experimental vaccine” in the Congo.

WHO has declared the Ebola outbreak an epidemic.

There is an effort to find 400 people believed to have come into contact with the “suspected cases.” Residents in the affected area of the Congo, the remote Bas-Uele province, are fleeing in fear.

That’s it so far.

I’ve been around the block on the Ebola story a dozen times. Here are the issues the press isn’t reporting—’

‘Vaccines are not “safe and effective.” There is no such thing as a safe vaccine.

But you wouldn’t know it to listen to the narrative being reported in the media. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the agency appointed to hold the final word on health and safety says, “Vaccines are safe and effective. The science is settled.”

However, when asked for proof showing that vaccinated children are healthier than unvaccinated children, the so-called science-based CDC offers none, claiming that it would be immoral to do such a study, to withhold ‘life-saving” preventatives from the population. “Trust us. Case closed.”

But curious minds do not close and do not trust opinion without proof as infectious and chronic disease rates skyrocket in children. Concerned individuals who live by the Precautionary Principle want answers. They refuse to be the guinea pigs who offer up their bodies for experimentation.’

‘In the backyard of the White House, in a 2,800-square-foot plot, the organic garden Michelle Obama started as first lady still thrives. Donald Trump must be unaware of the garden’s existence, or he would have already sold it off to the highest corporate bidder, just as he’s done with America’s future, and so much of our land and water.

While Donald might not have high regard for organic farming, his daughter Ivanka recognizes the benefits and has spoken frequently about feeding her children organic food. Her lifestyle website espouses the health benefits of pesticide-free, organic food.

No one begrudges Ivanka Trump her choice to feed her children healthy, clean food. Every parent deserves the opportunity to make healthy choices for their children. But you can’t have it both ways without becoming Marie Antoinette. With every decision and rollback, her father and the entire administration are eliminating those choices for American families.’

‘A blood test which reveals the sex of a baby after nine weeks as well as identifying undesirable traits should be restricted to avoid parents aborting their babies for spurious reasons, a Government-backed think tank has said.

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is a new screening tool which was designed to tell parents if their child could be suffering from Down’s Syndrome.

But the Nuffield Council on Bioethics has warned that unscrupulous clinics may use the test to ensure a mother will have a boy or certain genetic traits such as height or hair colour.

The warning comes amid fears that some doctors are unlawfully performing abortions purely on the basis of sex.

Professor Tom Shakespeare, chair of the body’s working group on NIPT, warned that the test could allow encourage ‘sex-selection tourists,’ from other countries who want to be sure they are having a boy.’
