A 5 minute history of Vietnam.
Who was the first person killed during the Vietnam war?
I had orders to Viet Nam in September 1963. For months I had been watching base movie news reels about the battles in the deltas around Saigon. PT boats with machine guns patrolling in the delta shooting at people on the shore, in the trees. Unseen soldiers of the VC.
The Navy was getting my mind ready for duty in Vietnam.
I did not want to go. I had just avoided going to the 1962 invasion of Cuba, because President John Kennedy refused to provide air cover for the CIA. JFK was still negotiating with the Cuban’s and Russians to maintain the fragile peace they had achieved.
JFK truly seemed to want peace with the Russians. JFK had saved my life and the lives of millions of Cubans. World history is moving fast now.
Suddenly JFK stopped the whole Vietnam war with the stroke of a pen, by issuing Executive Order #263. You are not suppose to know that.
The war was over. My friends and I at NAS Patuxent River, MD celebrated the end of the Vietnam war.
Our officers on the base were not so happy. In fact, many officers were openly treasonous against JFK. My orders to Vietnam were canceled.
I then received order to Iceland, in the dead of winter, where I enrolled in my first college course: History 101.
We were all in class readying “Profiles in Courage” when professor Frank J. Pavalko announced that President Kennedy has just been assassinated in Dallas at high noon. By a military style firing squad.
One week later, world news papers announced that LBJ had signed E.O.#265, re-starting the Vietnam war.
JFK had saved my life twice. I would spend the next 50 years trying to understand why JFK was killed and trying to arrest my Command Officer, Geo. HW Bush for the murder of my President.
President Kennedy was the first person killed in the Vietnam war.
Here is a memory test:
Where were you when President John F. Kennedy was killed?
The only 4 people on the face of the earth, who claim they can't remember where they were
when JFK was blown away, are:
CIA agent Geo. HW Bush, ( photos show him in front of
the TSBD, where he was arrested. Bush was supervisor for the Bay of Pigs, from 1960 to 1966,
on Watergate tapes confessing to the JFK assassination ) .
The tape is preserved in the National Archieves, until 2038. I wonder why we can’t listen to it until 2038? Maybe because Bush will have died of old age by then.
On 7-22-2011, noon, and then each month on the 22nd, at noon, 8-22-2011, & 9-22-11, we will hold a picket line in front of Bush’s Kennybuck Port home at noon
Demanding he be arrested for the murder of JFK. We have a legal permit for the picket line. We hold monthly meeting in 34 states. Join us.
Richard Nixon, ( who on the front page of the Dallas Morning News 11-22-63 )
while meeting with the head of Pepsi Cola & Joan Crawford, in Dallas
on 11-20-63 until 11-22-63, planning the JFK assassination. Watergate tapes.
At 12:35, Nixon flew out of Love Field, in Dallas, Texas.
Nixon flew to bring the news to JFK's death to Rockefeller, so they could begin the celebration.

and top CIA spy inside Cuba,
Frank Sturgis, also arrested in Dallas hiding behind
the grassy knoll on 11-22-63, Watergate burglar.
Gen. Charles Cabell, CIA director, in charge of the air cover for the Bay of Pigs, fired by JFK.
CIA director James Bissell, fired by JFK, after the Bay of Pigs,
& former CIA director, Allen Dulles. fired by JFK after the Playa Giron,
How is your memory now?
General Fabian Escalante’s new book " JFK: The Cuba Files”, is an international look at Why JFK was killed.
The book discusses the CIA’s secret wars against Cuba from 1959, to invade Cuba, months after Castro came to power. As soon as it became apparent to the the US central committe, the CIA, Pentagon, ABC, CBS, NBC, Federal Reserve and Pepsi Cola, that Fidel was nationalizing all the lands held by Pesi Cola, Hershey Choclate, and the mafia casinos. Fidel had changed his mind. Even better, JFK had no use for the invasion of Cuba. JFK wanted world peace with the Russians & Cuba. JFK wanted to end poverty in the US.
Fidel had moved on from being a nationalist the CIA could bribe, to a socialist who wanted the surplus value of Cuba to fund free schools, all the way thru medical school, the CIA decided to invade Cuba, ... just as soon as the 1960 election was over.
All the media: ABC, CBS & NBC were predicting Richard Nixon would be the next President. Somebody the CIA had been bribing since 1952, when Nixon help plan the invasion of Vietnam.
In the second major shock to the CIA, John Kennedy was elected President by the closet margin in history.
Now the CIA’s plans to recover all the land in Cuba, owned by Pepsi Cola, would have to be put on hold, while the CIA figured out how to bribe JFK, and get control of him. Would they be able to just ask JFK to use the Nixon plan to invade Cuba & Vietnam, or would they have to fabricate some dirt on JFK: his divorce, the fact he was Catholic, made up some mud about Marilyn Monroe, slander his war record, call JFK a communist.” What kind of pressure from the CIA & NBC would it take to control JFK?
Yes, all this and much much more, is discussed in Escalante’s new book on JFK: The Cuba Files”. There is even solid evidence in the book , pg 250, of how British sailors arrested 9 employees of CIA agent George H. W. Bush, on an island 30 miles from Cuba, with 100 machine guns, 3,000 rounds of ammunition, a ton of C-4 explosives, 1 Dec. 1961, all hidden on this tiny island, the size of a city block, where G. Bush had his “Zapata Oil company”, which actually a CIA front business for running guns, bombs and laundrying money for CIA drug businesses.
The British anti-terrorists police in the Caribbean, had been tracking illegal gun & drug smmugling operations from this island for 7 months. When they saw a speed boat deliver several wooden cases of machine guns from New Orleans & Miami to Cayo Sal, the British police seized the speed boat and then spent a month searching the island. The more they searched, the more suitcases of money, drugs and boxes of guns and explosives they found. Bush owned the whole tiny island. This fact ties Bush directly to the Bay of Pigs. This also is a direct link from Bush & Nixon to the JFK assassination.
Thus, by Escalante looking at the JFK assassination, from the Cuban experience, with the CIA attempted coup on Fidel, we get a clearer picture of “Why” JFK was assassinated. And which corporations were behind the murder of JFK.
If everyone interested in unraveling the JFK coup, was to read this book, and write a review we can educate the world about the JFK coup.
If you compare the Nov '63 coup in America, with the '54 coup in Guatamela and the 61 Bay of Pigs, attempt coup, in Cuba, you can more clearly see how the Dallas '63 coup, was the beginning of the longest coup in the world.
The coup that made America a Third World nation. A banana republic. One nation under corporate control.
There are today several excellent writers in Russia now writing books on their view of the 1962 Cuban missile crisis and the JFK coup in Ameria. As each nation offers us their view of the Bay of Pigs and the JFK assassination, we develop a 3 dimentional view of this American coup.
There was recently 2 powerful, hour long TV shows in Japan about how CIA agent George HW Bush killed JFK. You can see the movies free at Youtube: paul8kangas.
There are excellent investigative journalists in every nation in Europe writing books on how Bush 41 was the key suspect behind the JFK coup in America.

Writers in Latin America are very familar with the attempted coup in Cuba and the numerous CIA coups in Latin America. There is a famous quote from JFK aide Marcus Raskin, at a meeting discussing the Bay of Pigs with Gen. Lemnizer, “Well I guess Che learned more about the coup in Guatamela than we learned about the coup.”
Meaning Che had
There a several great Vietnames writers, poets and film makes writing about the history of the Vietnam war and linking the cause of the war directly to the JFK assassination. From their perspective, the Vietnam war ended in 1963, when JFK ordered all US troops out of Vietnam. Then suddenly the first person to die in the US, signally the new beginning to the re-start of the Vietnam was was 11-22-63, when the military industrial complex killed President Kennedy.
Then China weighted in, the day after the JFK assassination, that the killing of JFK signaled a new imperialist re-starting of the Vietnam war.
This view of China was even published in the Dallas Morning News 7 days after the JFK assassination.
There are today several writers in Russia now writing books on their view of the 1962 Cuban missile crisis and the JFK coup in Ameria. As each nation offers us their view of the Bay of Pigs and the JFK assassination, we develop a 3 dimentional view of this American coup.
Numerous writers and poets in the Philippines have written great histories, comparing the 1987 coup in Manila that killed Ninoy Aquino. The result of that assassination, was that the People of the Philippines moved rapidly to surrond the Marcos palace, demanding that Marcos be arrested for the assassination. This People mass movement continued until Marcos was removed and an election was held. The People Power movement is still the major force in Philippino society today.
Writers track back the origins of the US invasion of Cuba, to Bush & Nixons 1959 plans to overthrow Fidel.
The CIA has a dozen agents working inside Fidel’s July 26th movement, like Watergate burglar Frank Sturgis & Howard Hunt.
Sturgis had worked his way up inside Fidels movement, to head of the Cuban airforce.
The way Sturgis did this, was constantly flying in plane loads of M1 rifles to Fidel’s base in the Sierra Maesta’s. Sturgis had been trainned to land Piper Cubs on short runways and mountain roads. Fidel thought Sturgis was an angle from heaven the way he could land him plane on tiny mountain clearings or roads.
When Fidel finally realized Sturgis was sent by Bush & the CIA to kill Fidel, if necessary, Fidel called Sturgis, “the greatest CIA agent in the world.”
Sturgis had skillfully infiltrated the July 26th Movement, just in case the CIA needed an inside agent, to change the direction of the movement, with an accident or heart attack. Sturgis was very loyal to his CIA family. It was his first alma Matra. (Alma Matra translated means “the mothers milk” and I am loyal to whom ever first loved me.”)
Sturgis was part of the 1954 coup in Guatemala. Che had been living in Guatemala when the CIA coup overthrew Arbenz. By living thru that coup, Che learned all the red flags of a coming coup: Slanders in the press. Right wing flash mobs rising up, as if from nowhere. Suddenly holding violent public demonstrations attacking working class candidate campaign rallies. Gangs smashing the windows of any car having bumper stickers supporting the working class demands.
False talk show debates between 2 differnt CIA journalist, each attacking the candidate from 2 false points of view.
Annoumous CIA leaflets calling the candidate a communist.
Che saw a full court press on the streets of Guatamela, for a full year before Arbenz was finally removed by the US corporate interests. Che learned his lessons well. So when the attacks against Fidel began, he knew there was some sort of US corporate black operation going on against Fidel.
Che also saw the same black operations begin against JFK the month after the Bay of Pigs. Che wrote essays about how: “JFK had stopped the invasion of Cuba, and now the same corporate people whom had been behind the Playa Giron attempted coup against Fidel, were now preparing a coup against JFK.” Che talked about the press attacks on JFK in 1961 for firing Gen. Cabel, Bissel, & Allen Dulles. This sounded to Che just like the attacks he had seen, just 7 years earlier in Guatamela against Arbenz. Che learned more from his years in Guatemela, than most Americans have learned during the CIA: Pepsi, Bush, Nixon coup against JFK.
Sturgis was working for the CIA in Tibet when the CIA smuggled the Dali Lama out of Tibet, to use him as a puppet spiritual leader against China. The Dali Lama is now a wholly funded project of the CIA, ABC & big oil, thanks to the powerful work of Sturgis.
Sturgis was given the highest CIA honors when he died of anal cancer.
JFK saved Cuba from the CIA: Pepsi, Bush invasion. Cuba did not get a napalm bath the way Vietnam did. Yes the heroic people of Cuba would have fought back heroiclly, just like the Vietnamese did. It cost Vietnam 2 million dead from the phosphorus bombs, helicopter machine guns and napalm. The CIA: CBS, Big Oil, the Alioto family, could have bloodied & broken Cuba, the way they did Vietnam and a dozen other nations. But, somehow JFK’s deal with Cuba & the Russians saved beautiful Cuba from being attacked. Maybe the corporate industrial military complex thought they could make more profits in Vietnam than they could in Cuba. Vietnam was a bigger prize to the US ruling class. Whatever the reason US corporations did not want to start WWIII with Russia, over Cuba, this dynamic process saved Cuba.
Walk around Cuba for the past week, I felt like I was walking in a dream: beautiful architecture, huge green banana & mango green belt farms, run collectively by the workers,
If you ever wondered what was the value of all the labor energy put into the Cuban economy by the Venceramos Brigrade volunteers from 1967 to 2010, all you have to do is look at how beautiful Cuba is today.
There are no scars of naplam on the children, the people, the housing, as there is still today in Vietnam. There is no agent orange contamination causing birth defect in the next generation of the children of Cuba, as there still is in Vietnam now. Cuba is still a beautiful socialist tropical paradise, with colorful Ford & Chevy’s from 1939 to 1959. This huge fleet of blue, red & green private, well preserved, cars from the 50’s give an air of grandure to every street in Havana, Santigo, & in Cuba. Walking on any street in Cuba gives one the feeling you are walking on an exciting movie stage. Cuba is probably the most peaceful place on earth. I felt no danger walking for 20 blocks late at night, in neighborhoods of Havana. Yes, there are a few homeless people sleeping in driveway, next to their shopping cars full of the things they recycle and trade. But I did not feel in danger.

Once I had located Marcos and set him up by working my way into his life, I called Belli and told him I would be serving papers on Marcos in a few hours. Belli called Marcos’s attorney and ask him to accept the legal papers, or else we would serve him personally and bring the press photographers with us, as we were serving him in his hospital bed. The press would spash the photo all over the world. Marcos’s attorney agreed to accept the papers to avoid an international scene. )
Why the bee's are dying.
There are 5 reasons why the Bee's are dying. First is they are fed sugar water when they travel.
Sugar is a toxin. It should never be fed to bees or animals... or even people.
Next is the mites that live on bees that are weak, who love the taste of the sugar the bees are fed by large commercial bee keepers, who ship their bees nationwide.
Instead, bees should be fed mineral water to make them stronger.
Do we have to pass a law to forbid feeding bees sugar water??
The mites carry viruses, which further weaken the bees.
Moving bees thousands of miles kills more bees.
All these stressors add up to killing off our bees.
On Alan Wilson's table at the Oakland Farmers' Market, row after row of glass honey jars catch the early morning sun that angles down Ninth Street. Some of the honey gleams a reddish brown, some a paler amber, depending on the particular mix of flower species the bees foraged. All of it was produced by Wilson's colonies, which number a third of what he had last fall, before the infamous bee die-off that afflicted growers around the world. "I'd better get the honey while I can," one customer remarks.
The flurry of media attention given this winter's bee losses, now labeled "colony collapse disorder," has updated the world of bees for a heretofore-clueless public. Our image of honeybees is a lot like our bucolic images of farm animals—and just as far from the brutal truth of today's corporate agriculture. We picture fields of clover, blossoming orchards, the wildflowers beneath the trees, filled with happy bees industriously gathering nectar and pollen to take back to the hive. As the bees gather pollen, they transfer it from plant to plant, thus assuring cross-pollination.
Fewer people can picture what happens at the hive, where the bees feed the protein-rich pollen to their developing brood. The adults live on honey they make from collected nectar—sipped from the throats of flowers into the bees' honey stomachs, disgorged at the hive into the hexagonal wax combs made by the bees, fanned by bee wings to evaporate excess moisture until it reaches the perfect syrupy consistency, and then sealed with a wax cap to keep it clean and ready to sustain the colony over the winter. In order to do all this, bees rely on a diverse range of flowers blooming over a wide stretch of the year.
The honeybee (Apis mellifera) is a European native, one of very few bee species in the world to store honey in bulk and live fulltime in large colonies (30,000 to 100,000 individuals). It is the only bee with a long history of intensive management by people. For almost all of this time, and continuing today in many parts of the world, the rosy picture of bee life painted above is largely accurate. But when beekeeping meets industrial agriculture, the result is very different. Colony collapse disorder may have many contributing causes, but it comes down to bees hitting the biological limits of our agricultural system. It's not so much a bee crisis as a pollination crisis. And we may end up calling it agricultural collapse disorder.
It's a rare beekeeper in the United States who can survive by selling honey.
The trade loophole that has flooded this country with low-cost Chinese honey for the past ten years guaranteed that (fortunately for beekeepers, that hole has just been plugged by new federal tariff regulations). The only income remaining has been in pollination services. Alan Wilson's bees are rented out for almond pollination starting in February. After that they go south to the orange groves, then all the way to North Dakota where they make clover honey. Wilson's Central Valley location near Merced has little to offer bees over the dry summer months except roadside star thistle and the brief flowering of cantaloupes in August. Nearby agricultural chemicals are a concern, especially the defoliant used on cotton before harvest. Just the drift from the defoliant has taken the paint off Wilson's hives. Still, this year he plans to keep his bees closer to home where he can manage them more intensively and try to increase their numbers.
Every commercial beekeeper has different arrange-ments, but each involves long-distance trucking and the California almond crop. Almonds are entirely dependent on the seasonal importation of honeybees. Growers can't get crop insurance coverage unless they have at least two bee colonies per acre at almond blossom time; some growers use up to five colonies per acre for heavier yields. Over 800,000 Central Valley acres are planted in almond trees. As beekeeper Randy Oliver says, it is "monoculture at its absolute worst—they don't allow one species of weed to grow": mile after mile of bare soil and almond trees. No native pollinators can survive on this wasted landscape to ease the honeybees' burden, and nothing lives to sustain bees before or after the almond bloom.
Truckloads of bees begin to arrive as early as November from all over the nation—it takes virtually all of this country's commercially operated pollination colonies to cover California's almonds. While the bees roll down the highways, hive entrances boarded up, or wait in Central Valley bee yards for the trees to bloom, they're fed a mixture of high fructose corn syrup meant to replace nectar, along with soy protein meant to replace pollen. (Some beekeepers, Wilson among them, have switched to beet syrup as a safer though more expensive alternative.) Oliver sums up the patent absurdity: "When bugs from the east coast have to be trucked to California to pollinate an exotic tree because California has no bugs, it's a pretty whacked-out agricultural system."
Oliver's 500 bee colonies—he was lucky, with losses under ten percent—follow a relatively short migratory truck route that takes them from Central Valley almonds to Sierra foothill wildflowers to Nevada alfalfa. He attributes his success to fewer and shorter moves, reliance on pasture forage for much of the year, and avoidance of artificial feeding. "Some of these guys move their bees a dozen times a year," he says. Popular pollination routes include apples and blueberries, which rely on honeybees for 90 percent of their pollination, peaches (50 percent), and oranges (30 percent). Farmers won't bother planting squash or melons if they can't get beehives in place by bloom time. One-third of all US crops depend on honeybee pollination.
It hasn't been this way for long. Even 30 years ago growers could rely on a combination of native pollinating insects and local honeybees for most crops. In 1970, there were 35 beekeepers in Alan Wilson's area; now there are two. As farms grew more and more of fewer and fewer crops, using petrochemical pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers, vast tracts of land have gradually approached the reductionist goal of supporting no life at all except the target crop. It's not just the almonds—every crop is grown this way. That's why it's called industrial agriculture, or factory farming.
Bee researchers have been calling bees "the canary in this coal mine," a different version of the birds and the bees. A quote attributed to Albert Einstein has been popping up all over the Internet: "If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man." Einstein never said it, but the instant ubiquity of the sentiment says everything.
Though the media only picked it up this year, bees have actually been in trouble for the past couple of decades. Mites—parasitic insects small enough to use bees as their hosts—jumped from other species to honeybees, another example of collateral damage from global transportation. First tracheal mites in the '80s, then varroa mites in the '90s—even before last winter, the world's honeybee population had declined by half in 30 years.
UC Davis apiculturist Eric Mussen points out that before the mites arrived, winter losses of five to ten percent of a beekeeper's colonies were the norm. The mites increased yearly losses to 25 percent by the late '80s, and now we're at 40 percent or higher, with some years better than average and others catastrophic. Randy Oliver says, "If we made a list of collapses of the last 20 years, this winter's would not make the top five." Last year's losses were bad for Alan Wilson, but the last four years together have decimated his colonies by over 90 percent. The only beekeepers doing substantially better are the very small percentage practicing non-chemical mite control coupled with little or no trucking or artificial feeding—in other words, labor-intensive vigilance combined with lower pollination income. It's not a financially viable option for many fulltime beekeepers.
The difference with this winter's losses is not having an identified cause, and therefore no quick (even if temporary) fix. For tracheal mites, beekeepers developed nontoxic preventive treatments—Alan Wilson successfully doses his bees on a mixture of Crisco, sugar, and peppermint extract. Varroa mites proved trickier, and beekeepers started down the slippery slope of synthetic insecticide use. "Until the mid-'90s nobody dreamed of using chemicals in beehives," Oliver says. Once they did, the race was on, with insecticide-resistant varroa mites evolving neck-in-neck with the newest chemical treatment. European beekeepers, who have had the varroa mite longer, have pretty much given up on chemicals and use an Integrated Pest Management approach. US beekeepers who go this route find it labor- and attention-intensive, and effective within its parameters (not eradication but healthy bees living with a smaller number of mites). According to Oliver, "We're just prolonging our agony as long as we continue to use chemical treatments."
Everyone agrees the honeybee buzzed into the 21st century carrying a heavy load of stress. Colonies were weakened by mites, perhaps by chemicals used to kill the mites, and probably by at least some of the 25 different viruses carried by varroa mites. Add in a fungus, nosema, that's tolerated by healthy bees but a problem for already weakened hives. Then there's the stress of long-distance truck travel, longer distances for more bees every year. The small hive beetle, an African native recently found in Florida hives, posed another challenge; aggressive African honeybees attack the beetle, but European bees, bred to be docile, let it overrun the hive.
Cell phone interference has been proposed as a threat to bees, based on reports of a German study showing bees unable to find their way home in the presence of high-frequency electromagnetic radiation. This particular theory must be called inconclusive at best, since the study was not designed with enough apicultural knowledge to produce reliable results.
No bee taken from the hive for the first time, as was done in the study, would be able to find its way back, since bees navigate primarily by landmarks, not electromagnetic homing sensors. Their first few excursions are short orientation flights, not blind trips in a box to a release point.
Of all these factors, many beekeepers judge varroa mites the most consistently debilitating. But there's another weakening influence more obvious and more integral to the larger agricultural dilemma. It's the stressor Mussen calls the most important of all—bee malnutrition. High-fructose corn syrup and soy protein are not any more nutritious for bees than they are for humans (see Spring 2007), and bees in transit and between pollination jobs often must subsist on nothing but these non-foods. Compounding the problem, we're talking genetically modified corn and soy, every cell of which contains a bacterial insecticide. Are bees not insects? US studies have indicated that Bt corn pollen does not kill healthy bees or brood reared on it, but a German study showed that Bt pollen led to "significantly stronger decline in the number of bees" in hives already weakened by varroa mites.
We do know that corn pollen in general is poor bee food, high in fiber and low in protein. The Midwest, up until now the country's best bee forage habitat, this year is being planted much more aggressively to GM corn as a source for ethanol—aggressive meaning planting marginal areas and edges usually left to the asters and goldenrods that are high-quality pollen sources in late summer when bees need to raise the generation that will overwinter. Even when bees are out foraging for real nectar and non-GMO pollen, for much of the year they are likely to be ingesting a monocultured diet due to their use as pollinators for industrial-scale agriculture—nothing but almond, then nothing but apple, then only watermelon. They're exposed to pesticides used on their forage crops as well. Oh—and one more influence to factor into the equation—very hot weather can damage the protein content of pollen, decreasing its food value for bees. Global warming is kicking our butts from more directions than we can comprehend.
Given these conditions, last winter's losses can hardly be considered a surprise. Neither can the failure of bee researchers to come up with one specific cause, much less a magic bullet cure. Still, the kind of thinking that got us this far continues. According to Mussen, "the only hope is the USDA Tucson lab" which is working on a liquid feed that bees can eat all year. Randy Oliver calls this the "holy grail" of bee research. The USDA's proprietary formula, if they come up with one that works, will be patented and licensed to a commercial producer, and the whole agricultural system may manage to lurch along for a few more years, complete with pollinators hauled from Florida to California in time for the almond bloom.
How did all those almonds get pollinated this year, on the heels of beekeepers' discoveries that half (in some cases up to 90 percent) of their colonies had suddenly gone missing? It wouldn't have happened without a change in regulations that allowed bees to be imported from Australia. Bee businesses Down Under went into boom mode, sending 100,000 packages of bees to the States. A package is a starter kit of about 10,000 worker bees and a queen, enclosed in a small screened box with a sugar water feeder. The receiving beekeeper shakes the package into a waiting hive, and given proper nectar and pollen resources, within a month a new generation of bees will be expanding the colony.
The Australian influx may be short-lived, as a colony of Indian bees (Apis cerana) was recently discovered living aboard a yacht off Australia. The Indian bee is host to yet another mite that could wreak havoc if it spreads to the European honeybee. Another factor in almond pollination this year was the rental price for a bee colony, which averaged $150, nearly twice what it was last year. This was the first year in which the income beekeepers realized from almond pollination surpassed the income received for the entire US honey crop. There's talk of opening the Canadian border for next year's almond season.
To paraphrase Randy Oliver, we're prolonging our agony by continuing with this profoundly unworkable agricultural system. Suddenly terms like "organic" and "biodiversity" shift from boutique buzzwords to elements of survival. This country has 4,500 species of native insects that are potential pollinators. On the East Coast, where farms are much smaller, more diverse, and broken up by uncultivated land, native insects account for up to 90 percent of crop pollination. Studies done on Costa Rican coffee crops have shown that yields are 20 percent greater within one kilometer of forest remnants. Canadian canola farmers show increased yields by leaving 30 percent of their cropland wild. It's all about pollination.
Fortunately for us, insects are quick to recolonize formerly dead areas. Hedgerows, windbreaks, wetlands, woodlots—the particulars of restoration agriculture are easy and already known. It's the big picture that's harder to shift, from the extractive industrial petrochemical model to the biodiverse ecosystem model. Honeybees have upped the ante, giving us all the motivation we need to change—do we want to continue to eat?
A friend of yours highly recommends you read this health article:
Cure for cancer found.
The easiest way to prevent cancer is by taking 2,000 mcg of selenium daily.
Here is an example of an article that is pure BS. But is well written, so this is how the average person thinks.
Dr. Lipton is full of it, but read & see if you can see the trap.
Do Your Beliefs Also Influence Your Health?
Similarly, your belief system about your health will either place you in a continual state of helplessness, or allow you to be the master of your life.
Do you believe you will succumb to cancer because “it runs in your family”? Or that your brother is an alcoholic because he inherited the trait from your father? Or that you’re overweight because everyone in your family is?
Then you’ve fallen prey to conventional medical beliefs.
Bruce Lipton, PhD., talks about the impact your belief systems have on your physical health in his book The Biology of Belief – Unleashing the power of consciousness, matter and miracles, and how the emergence of the science of epigenetics is correcting the fatally flawed medical paradigm from one of victimhood, to personal mastery.
How to Validate Your Children to Teach Them They are Powerful
Children do need emotional validation, however. If their negative feelings about what is happening in their lives are not validated, they may continue focusing on the negative until they are validated. Children can become pessimistic if they do not feel they are being emotionally heard and validated.
But, as Carol Tuttle describes in the article Messages Your Children Need to Hear, it’s important to not simply try to change their negative feelings into positives, but rather validate your child's negative feelings, and then offer them a choice:
1. Continue to perceive the situation as negative (which will teach them to be powerless victims), or

I have found an easy way to loose 10 lbs. I just drink: liquid colloidal minerals drinks, carrot/ garlic soup, vitamin C drinks, carrot juice,
food grade Hydrogen Peroxide water, Miso Soup, & various fluids for 3 days.
It is quite refreshing and makes me feel great.
An excellent source of selenium is from American Youngevity.
This is a great health insurance nutritional company that is better than the Single Payer system.
Better than Single Payer? Yes. Here is why. This system is working now. It costs only $6. to join this company to insure your health by taking all essential 69 minerals.
Farmers give their animals all 69 minerals. For that reason, there is almost no Cancer in cows.
Cows fed minerals do not get cancer.
Isn't that interesting. Investigate that claim.

Answering The Critics:
"The Townsend Letter"
Dr. Wallach's views on health, nutrition, and on the state of medical care in this country are unconventional, unorthodox and typically "anti-establishment." In the last six months or so, as his audio tape, Dead Doctors Don't Lie, has gained in popularity we have seen many attempts, in the press and on the internet to discredit Dr. Wallach and to poke holes in his arguments. In the July 1997 edition of the Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients Dr. Morton Walker, a respected medical journalist, does an excellent job of both listing critical opinion and setting the record straight by sounding Dr. Wallach's response. We reprint Dr. Walker's article, Medical Journalist Report of Innovative Biologics here, in full, with permission of the author:
A Reporter's Response To The Internet Critique Of Joel Wallach, Dvm, Nd, And His Audiocassette, 'Dead Doctors Don't Lie.'
On pages 126 to 128 of "BookCorners," the book review section of the Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients, (#163/164, February/March 1997), an article appeared criticizing the flamboyant, wholistic medical mover and shaker, Joel Wallach, DVM, ND, of San Diego, California. The outright criticism, as published, came from an anonymous source who commented on Dr. Wallach's audiocassette tape, "Dead Doctors Don't Lie." Using this cassette tape as a promotional tool, Dr. Wallach offers the public innovative biologic food supplements in the form of colloidal minerals. The audiotape has been broadly distributed by mail and through the internet to the worldwide web.
Unlike other reviews appearing in "BookCorners," this internet "Scientific Critique" was presented to TlfDP readers by an unsigned source - no identity. Did its commentary come from publisher Jonathan Collin, MD, editor Irene Alleger, editorial assistant Jule Klotter, or another usual book reviewer for the TlfDP? The reader is left to ponder.
Such pondering led to my investigations. I was looking for confirmation of the internet critic's "debunking" of statements made by Dr. Wallach on his audiotape. Where might I find such confirmation? The internet critic remains anonymous and the magazine's reviewer is anonymous, too. I decided to be brazen and inquire of the tape producer himself. Besides, although he deserves a chance to reply, Dr. Wallach had not previously been given equal space by TlfDP. Strictly as a reporter on topics of innovative biologics and occasional medical politics, therefore, I pursued the veterinarian turned naturopath to get his response to the unidentified critiquer who often branded Dead Doctors Don't Lie as "absurd and insupportable." I also solicited Dr. Wallach's rebuttal, if any, to implied criticisms from the unknown reviewer.
The following comments are taken from tape recorded interviews I conducted in person and during telephone conversations with Dr. Joel D. Wallach.
A 1991 Nominee for the Nobel Prize in Medicine
(1)The internet critic is unimpressed that Dr. Wallach was a 1991 Nobel Prize nominee for medicine and says "anyone can nominate anyone." I know that the critic is wrong about the simplicity of this nominating procedure, because I went through it twice in different years for worthy nominees.
To nominate someone for the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine, one must first present personal credentials sufficient to warrant receiving an application from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. When and if the application arrives, the credentialed nominator must fill in the application with accomplishments of the nominee and submit it to the appropriate office at the Karolinska Institute.
Such a Nobel Prize nomination for Dr. Wallach is, in fact, quite true, and I hold a copy of the nominating letter from the 3,000 membership, Atlanta-based Association of Eclectic Physicians (chartered in 1823), dated September 7, 1990. It's signed by Daniel G. Clark, MD and William H. Moore, Jr., Esq. With three others, Dr. Wallach was to be considered because of his "elucidating the pathophysiology of cystic fibrosis as a selenium deficiency."
Performance of Animal and Human Autopsies
(2) The critic expresses doubt that Dr. Wallach performed 3,000 autopsies on humans. He did perform 17,500 autopsies on 454 species of animals and, because of his experience, he was frequently asked to render professional opinions on human autopsy material. Starting in 1962 Dr. Wallach performed "re-do" human autopsies on "autopsy sets" supplied by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). These "sets" consist of an average of 400 pathology slides of human tissue along with the patients' health histories. It's standard procedure for pathologists to study this way and, upon completing a "set," the pathologist is credited with having performed an autopsy. As a graduate student working toward his PhD, Dr. Wallach taught pathology at Iowa State University as well.
From 1966 to 1968, Dr. Wallach was a postdoctoral fellow with he Center for the Biology of Natural Systems, Washington University at St. Louis, Missouri. There he continued to do animal and human autopsies under the supervision of board certified pathologists.
People Suffer from Pica
(3) The critic looks askance at Dr. Wallach's description of pica being a form of cribbing. Pica is the indiscriminate eating by humans of non-nutritious substances with current evidence showing it's a manifestation of particular mineral deficiencies. The variety of animal pica is referred to as cribbing, and includes the eating of harmful substances such as stones and materials forming the animals' stalls or cribs.
Dr. Wallach advises me that the snack food industry has managed to convert people with pica from eating ice, dirt and grass to eating sugared foods and salty chips - the munchies. This craving among mostly inactive people comes from their expressing mineral deficiencies. Pica is a symptom of mineral deficiencies, including iron and phosphorous.
Medical Doctors Die at Average Age 58
(4) The critic questions Dr. Wallach's statement on his tape that US medical doctors have shorter life expectancies than the average American, who dies at 75.5 years. He collects MD obituaries, including the announcements of death in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). From the small evaluation he performed on January 20 1993, Dr. Wallach concludes that AMA members are seemingly dying at an average age of 57.6 years. Dr. Wallach says, "Even if the internet critic is correct in stating that the average physician lives 70 years, that's still five and a half years less than the life expectancy of the average American citizen!"
An Anticancer Diet Exists
(5) The critic disagrees with Dr. Wallach that an anticancer diet has been found. But this announcement was headlined in September 1993 from a press release issued by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Anticancer dietary supplements, specifically selenium, were pinpointed on December 25, 1996 by researchers at the University of Arizona, who published their findings in JAMA.
The Incidence of Alzheimer's Disease
(6) In disagreeing with Dr. Wallach's statistic of Alzheimer's disease being as high as 50% among people over age seventy, the internet critic states that the incidence of Alzheimer's disease actually is 3.9%. The critic is dead wrong again!
I coauthored a book showing causes and treatments for dementia of the Alzheimer's type (DAT), Toxic Metal Syndrome: How Metal Poisonings Can Affect Your Brain, with H. Richard Casdorph, MD, PhD, of Long Beach, California, and our statistics differ sharply from he critic's numbers. In contrast, Dr. Wallach comes close to being correct. In the book, I wrote: "...Alzheimer's disease affects up to 10% of persons over sixty-five, 25% of those over eighty, and nearly 50% over eighty-five...It is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States with an upward trend producing approximately 350,000 newly diagnosed cases of Alzheimer's disease annually."1
Pigs Manifest Alzheimer's Disease
(7) In disputing Dr. Wallach's knowledge and statements as a veterinarian, the critic says that "pigs don't get Alzheimer's disease." Dr. Wallach points out the at the critic is using incorrect terminology in referring t the animals' disability. In pigs, chickens, and other animals, Alzheimer's disease is called encephalomalacia, a brain syndrome that matches the human form of such dementia. As with elderly humans, a type of DAT does affect pigs.
Butter is Better than Olive Oil
(8) This critic commenting over the internet prefers olive oil to butter as an eating and cooking fat, but Dr. Wallach likes butter better. He took his information from the eating habits of long-lived societies who use butter and yak fat, and those third world cultures often live to be 120 years old or beyond.
Copper Deficiency Causes Gray Hair and Wrinkles
(9) The critic comments adversely on Dr. Wallach's belief that copper deficiency is the source of gray hair and facial wrinkles and labels the statement as "absurd and insupportable." Dr. Wallach has the research showing that the enzyme lyseal oxidase requires copper as a cofactor to change proelastin into elastin. If one is copper deficient, the process of making elastin stops so that wrinkles, sagging tissues, varicose veins and other skin difficulties develop.
As to copper's connection to gray hair, the mineral is required to form melanin which pigments hair. If you lack copper, pigment will be sparse or absent. In animal husbandry, if a sheep farmer wants his black animals to grow white wool, he gives them a copper deficiency. Turkey farmers are able to raise birds with the same colorings as zebras - stripes or bars of black and white or brown and white. As the turkeys' feathers grow and molt, the farmers alternate feedings to produce copper deficiency and then copper sufficiency...copper deficiency...copper sufficiency...copper deficiency...copper sufficiency, as the feathers go through their growth cycles. A bar-like effect is the result.
Cardiomyopathy Comes from a Selenium Deficiency
(10) The anonymous critic totally disagrees with Dr. Wallach who states that cardiomyopathy derives from a selenium deficiency. In 1957, veterinarians learned that cardiomyopathy and muscular dystrophy in animals were caused by selenium deficiency. Cardiomyopathy in animals is called mulberry heart disease and muscular dystrophy is known as white muscle disease. As a veterinarian, Dr. Wallach's training gives him certain advantages over doctors who treat humans only, for he reads the literature of both groups.
During the 1980's, Dr. Wallach conducted extensive study in China on a fatal form of cardiomyopathy in humans known as Keshan disease (KD). In this study, Dr. Wallach analyzed autopsy material from 1700 cases of DD at Harbin Medical University, Shanghai Medical University and Beijing Medical University. The results of this study have been published in two Chinese medical journals. There was no selenium in the crop soils of Keshan China, so 13 out of every 1,000 children died of cardiomyopathy. The World Health Organization (WHO) sent in a group of scientists who determined that, indeed, selenium deficiency was causing the problem. One milligram of sodium selenite (NaSe) fed to 36,000 school children was compared to 9,000 controls who received no selenium. The result proved the lack of selenium was the cause of cardiomyopathy heart disease. There were no genetic or infectious factors involved.
The Death of Dr. Stewart Berger
(11) Then the critic played up the death of Stewart Berger, MD, of New York City as resulting from cardiomyopathy because he was obese and probably abused drugs. Dr. Wallach declares that even persons with bad habits and who supplement their diets with nutrient pills not being absorbed as had Dr. Berger, have a high probability of selenium deficiency.
Identifying the Anonymous Critic
(12) At this point during our interviews, in response to my prodding him with certain additional irritating comments coming from his highly critical challenger, Dr. Wallach identified whom he suspects as the anonymous internet critic.
Dr. Wallach stated: "I believe this anonymous internet critic actually is the paid consultant for several commercial companies that sell multivitamin and multi-mineral pills. The motivation to criticize is likely to come from this critic's desire to try and knock me off as a nutritional supplement competitor. I've heard the same erroneous commentary from the critic before."
Aneurysms Arise from a Copper Deficiency
(13) When it comes to aneurysm, the internet critic indicates that Dr. Wallach is off base when he blames aneurysm on a deficiency of copper. Although there exist 40 different listings of aneurysm types, only one root cause of them prevails, replies Dr. Wallach. It does not matter how they get classified, lack of copper starts up the entire pathological process evolving into aneurysm. "Remember, copper is required as a cofactor to convert proelastin into elastin or elastic fibers; the basic root cause of all Aneurysms is a disruption of the elastic fibers of the artery walls," says the veterinarian/naturopath. "The fundamental definitive research on aneurism and copper deficiency was performed on turkeys for farmers."
Male Pattern Baldness Comes from a Tin Deficiency
(14) The critic says that Dr. Wallach's remarks concerning tin as a cause of baldness "is entirely incorrect." Yet, work with animals was published in Kyoto, Japan in 1990 that indicates tin (Sn) deficiency stimulates the development of male pattern baldness. Rats fed tin at 17.0 ng/gm show poor growth, reduced feeding efficiency, hearing loss, and bilateral (male pattern) hair loss, while rats fed 1.99 mcg/gm were physiologically and anatomically normal. Tin, in fact, is a prevention factor for cancer. Also, a November 1991 US federal study shows that the lack of tin in the diet leads to impaired hearing for older men at any given age than in men of earlier generations.
Calcium Deficiency Causes Bell's Palsy
(15) This internet critic totally discounts Dr. Wallach's claim that Bell's palsy, a condition with neurological symptoms, comes from a calcium deficiency. When someone comes down with osteoporosis, the veterinarian/naturopath explains, bones try to get stronger by generating connective tissue so that they actually become measurably larger. The bones squeeze against the nerves. In Bell's palsy the seventh cranial nerve gets compressed by the newly grown connective tissue. To reverse Bell's palsy, therefore, it is necessary to take minerals and other nutrients that reverse osteoporosis, nutrients which may include calcium, magnesium, chondroitin sulfate, etc. The bones will then revert to their normal size and ease pressure on the seventh cranial nerve and Bell's palsy goes away.
Other neurological involvements relating to osteoporosis from calcium deficiency are tinnitus (which may be associated with vertigo and then it's called Wallach's vertigo), spinal stenosis, and tic douloreux or trigeminal neuralgia. Corticosteroids do help temporarily because they stop the inflammatory-like process affecting the connective tissues. But to get rid of these problems, calcium and chondroitin sulfate must be given to correct osteoporosis.
Vanadium/Chromium Deficiencies Upset Sugar Metabolism
(16) The internet critic puts no stock in Dr. Wallach's focus on vanadium and chromium being two essential minerals involved in sugar metabolism. The critic says that vanadium isn't even recognized as an essential nutrient for humans. Dr. Wallach replies: "Vanadium and chromium affect sugar and fat metabolism. In 1985, the Vancouver Medical School declared that vanadium alone could replace insulin for adult onset diabetics."
Arthritis is Osteoporotic Bone Ends
(17) The internet critic flatout says that it's incorrect to describe arthritis as being osteoporosis of the joint ends of the bones. Dr. Wallach is firm in his admonition about wear and tear arthritis coming from poor nutrition. Such a nutritional lack will be connected to the presence of osteoporosis. He told me, "When the bone melts away, the cartilage wears through and all this relates to calcium and other minerals being deficient..Arthritics deficient in calcium will also be lacking in other minerals such as sulfur, magnesium, and so forth."
Dr. Wallach Dismisses Good Oral Hygiene
(18) Shocked! Is the reaction of the internet critic as related to Dr. Wallach discounting good oral hygiene as a prevention of periodontal disease. In turn, the audiotape producer explains "When one gets receding gums, gingivitis, pyorrhea periodontitis, loose teeth, and other gum disease, the dental profession has the malignant belief that infection is causing the problem. That's dumb! The baseline trouble is osteoporosis of the jaw and facial bones. That's because the bones are rather thin and disappear quickly in the presence of osteoporosis. The key to treatment is to give enough calcium and other minerals. Good oral hygiene may assist against the associated secondary infection but not the osteoporosis."
The Eating Habits of Long-Lived People
(19) "One of the most simplistic and nonsensical claims made on this tape," says the internet critic, "is that people who live to be 100 years old drink 40 cups of tea every day and put rock salt and two pats of butter in each cup." Dr. Wallach backs up his statement by advising that these long lived folk reside in semi-arid locations high in the mountains. Therefore, they drink numerous two- to four-ounce cups of tea and coffee daily and do use butter and salt in their beverage. His information, he assures me, comes from the National Geographic magazine, published in January 1973.
Surgeons Make Mercedes Payments by Doing Hysterectomies
(20) The internet critic takes a pro-AMA stance when he or she unequivocally states as a defense of surgeons, "hysterectomies are being performed mostly because of ovarian cancer or other diseases."
Dr. Wallach says, "365,000 hysterectomies are done each year and the group, Physicians for Responsible Medicine declare that only 10% are of value. That group has supplied me with my figures. The same statement was published again by that group in March 1997."
Osteoporosis Brings on Most Low Back Pain
(21) The critic labels "absurd" Dr. Wallach's claim that osteoporosis is responsible for bringing on low back pain most of the time. "Calcium deficiency is behind all types of back pain because osteoporosis causes the actual symptomatology," this tape producer says in response.
Diabetes Cured with Vanadium/Chromium Supplementation
(22) The critic wants to see Dr. Wallach's patient records showing that diabetics get permanent help by the appropriate use of vanadium and chromium supplementation. "You can wean adult onset diabetics off insulin, merely by giving them the amounts of vanadium and chromium that they need, states the doctor.
Colloidal Minerals that Are Metallic and Non-Metallic
(23) The anonymous individual who has given us this so called "scientific critique" wants to see Dr. Wallach's documentation for his statement about metallic minerals and their 8 to 12% absorbability. In answer, the Dead Doctors Don't Lie lecturer says, "Plant-derived colloidal minerals don't come from soils as do elemental metallic minerals that are fossilized and taken from the ground. After age 35 the ability of a human to absorb metallic minerals drops to 3 to 5%. I took those numbers from the seventh edition of Food, Nutrition and Diet Therapy, written by Krause and Maham, published by the W.B. Saunders Company in 1984. Gerhardt Schrauzer, Dsc, Professor Emeritis at the University of California at San Diego, shows that plant-derived colloidal minerals are ten times more absorbable than soil-derived elemental minerals."
Vitamin Tablets Appear in Portable Toilets
(24) The internet critic doesn't believe that the owner of a portable toilet company sees vitamin tablets lying in his porta potties. In answer, Dr. Wallach assures me that the portable toilet company is located in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
"Also, the public works department of Salt Lake City, Utah fills two 55 gallon cans with loads of vitamin and mineral pills each year. The pills clog their sewer system's grid for the sewer processing plant. Call the city's public works department to confirm my statement," advises Dr. Wallach.
Iron Oxide (Rust) in Nutrient Formulations
(25) Being facetious, the internet critic says he's never found rust listed on the label of any nutrient formulation. Since he didn't understand the commentator's criticism, Dr. Wallach agreed that iron oxide found on labels for bottles of multi minerals is rust and otherwise offered no other reply to the implied criticism.
The Wallach Calcium Lactate Story
(26) The critic disdains Dr. Wallach's claim that only 10% of calcium is a 1000-mg tablet of calcium lactate containing 250mg of calcium is absorbed. Dr. Wallach does, indeed correct himself and advises that calcium lactate holds just 140 mg of calcium with only 14mg absorbed. The tablet's balance is 860mg of milk sugar which has little nutritional value.
98 Percent of Colloidal Minerals are Absorbed
(27) The critic is dubious of the audiotape's statement relating to 98% colloidal mineral absorption because Dr. Wallach sells colloidal minerals from plants. As quoted from his book, Rare Earths: Forbidden Cures: "Mineral colloids are found in the living systems of bacteria, fungi, green plants (food crops), animals and humans and are coated by a water loving (hydrophilic) substance such as gelatin, albumin, albuminoids, or collagen. This coating protects the now 'organic mineral colloid' and allows it to be a crystalloid for absorption, storage and physiological uses, thus maximizing its bioavailability to 98%."
Proof of the Value of Colloidal Minerals
(28) Proof of colloidal mineral value is demanded by our internet critic, and I've just cited a paragraph from an entire book on the subject (496 pages) written by Dr. Wallach as providing that proof.
Colloidal Minerals Stored in the Human Body
(29) A real difference of opinion exists between the internet critic and Dr. Wallach as regarding the presence of colloidal minerals in the human body. The critic emphasizes that they're only present in the ionic state. In contrast, Dr. Wallach says, "The minerals stored with proteins and lipids are in the colloidal form. The free, ionic minerals found in the human body are in the blood and interstitial tissues, and some minerals formed there are floating colloids as part of cells and interstitial tissues."
Long-lived Cultures Drink Glacial Water
(30) The internet critic's final complaint is that glacial water drunk by long-lived cultures furnishes metallic minerals and not colloidal ones. "That's not my point," Dr. Wallach replies. "The populations noted for longevity get only a very small amount of minerals from drinking glacial milk. Rather, those long-lived societies irrigate with glacial milk to create soil by taking muck out of rivers, agricultural debris and animal manure. They merely irrigate with glacial milk which puts metallic minerals into the soil. The plants absorb these elemental minerals to produce plant-derived colloidal minerals and the people eat those plants.
"This internet critic who is complaining about me is a paid hack for numbers of multivitamin, multi mineral companies who are getting hurt by the colloidal mineral movement," affirms Dr. Wallach. "The companies are paying the person to try and do a hatchet job on me."
Aluminum Present in Colloidal Minerals.
(31) Next we drop to criticisms brought to this book review section by someone who has chosen to ally with Dr. Wallach's internet critic and to remain anonymous as well. Using literature coming from the very multi nutrient manufacturing competitors Dr. Wallach alluded to just above in criticism #30, the Townsend Letter critic questions the presence of aluminum and strontium in colloidal minerals. My interview of Dr. Wallach causes me also to be at odds with him on this point. In our warnings about toxic metals as the source of Alzheimer's disease, my coauthored book, Toxic Metal Syndrome centers its precautionary notes most emphatically on avoiding aluminum.
"In my own book, Rare Earths: Common Cures, I list a lot of common foods containing aluminum: asparagus, beans, Brussels sprouts, celery, cucumbers and much more. There is much more colloidal aluminum in two slices of cucumbers than in a whole bottle of colloidal minerals," Dr. Wallach states. "Aluminum makes up 12% of the Earth's crust and as our planet's most common, it is found in all foods and water. Aluminum has nothing to do with Alzheimer's disease. That's medical 'Ka-Ka' (the stuff left behind in babies' diapers). I don't tell my patients to avoid aluminum deodorants. I want my patients to smell good!"
My impression is that Dr. Wallach is shooting himself in the foot by putting out this opinion which goes against vast numbers of medical references and only gives aid to the aluminum industry of the United States and Canada.
Vitamin E Prevents Alzheimer's Disease in Pigs
(32) Quoting the competitive mineral manufacturer's literature again, the unknown TlfDP reviewer says pigs don't get Alzheimer's disease. "With the pig still alive, how would yo determine if the pig had Alzheimer's disease?" wonders the reviewer. As Dr. Wallach explained in #7 above, pigs do come down with dementia of the Alzheimer's type (DAT).
"In pigs, Alzheimer's disease is called encephalomalacia, a brain syndrome that matches the human form of such dementia. As with elderly humans, a type of DAT does affect pigs," he repeats. "The way one knows the pig has Alzheimer's disease is to do an autopsy, the only verifiable method for the condition, just as in humans."
Again Questioned, Tin Deficiency Causes Baldness
(33) Our TlfDP critical reviewer again uses the competitive manufacturer's printed material to question Dr. Wallach's blaming male pattern baldness on tin deficiency. The veterinarian/naturopath once again cites his references (shown below at footnote number 4 and 5).
Added to this is another statement made in a letter dated February 25, 1997 written to the editor of Self magazine by Dr. Gerhardt N. Schrauzer of San Diego. Informing the magazine, Dr. Schrauzer writes, "As to tin deficiency as a possible cause of baldness, few of Dr. Wallach's critics probably know that his view is backed by animal experiments originally performed by K. Schwarz, et. al. And more recent evidence by K. Yokoi, M. Kimura, and Y. Itokawa of Kyoto University, who found alopecia developing in rats maintained on a low tin diet.
Reduction of Hcl and Digestive Enzymes
(34) The Townsend Letter critic sides with the internet critic as regards Dr. Wallach's claim that there is 3 to 5% absorption of metallic minerals. The two critics say that's "ridiculous." Dr. Wallach replies, "Hypochlorhydrin is a common problem once people hit 35 years of age and that's why betaine hydrochloride sells so well. The reason people younger get it is because they're put on a low-salt diet by ignorant doctors."
Osteoporosis is a Source of Low Back Pain
(35) "We concur with the internet author" who thinks it's absurd to say that osteoporosis is a source of low back pain," affirms the TlfDP critical reviewer.
So who is the Townsend Letter critic agreeing with? What are the internet critic's qualifications?" asks Dr. Wallach.
Vanadium Is Not an Essential Nutrient
(36) This critic representing the TlfDP agrees with the internet critic when he or she says, "...vanadium has not been recognized as an essential nutrient for humans and this is a true statement." Dr. Wallach is firm when he says, "The Townsend Letter is wrong: it's a false statement!" See below for the references footnoted from Dr. Wallach's book, Rare Earths: Forbidden Cures, which indicate vanadium deficiency is associated with he following multiple health problems: (a) slow growth, (b) increased infant mortality, (c) elevated triglycerides, (d) cardiovascular disease, (e) elevated cholesterol, (f) hypoglycemia, (g) hyperinsulinemia, (h) diabetes, (i) infertility, and (j) obesity."
PMS Derives from Calcium Deficiency
(37) The TlfDP unnamed reviewer thinks it's absurd to declare calcium deficiency as the cause of premenstrual syndrome. Dr. Wallach responds with a quote from a University of California news release which said seven years ago: "As much as 85% of the emotional and physical symptoms of PMS derives from calcium deficiency."
Giving You the Rest of the Story"
(38) The TlfD&P critical reviewer, an admirer of Paul Harvey, believes that the internet critic has been 'giving you the rest of the story." Dr. Wallach doesn't accept such sloganeering. "Let's have the internet author identified so that I can show you how little education he has," says the lecturing veterinarian turned naturopath.
In contrast, Dr. Wallach offers his own qualifications, "I have had 75 peer - reviewed articles published in medical and veterinary journals. I've contributed chapters to 8 multi authored textbooks. I've written a textbook of my own, The Diseases of Exotic Animals, containing more than 1000 pages and 2,000 illustrations, published by W.B. Saunders in . It describes over 13,500 of the 17,500 autopsies I've performed on large and small exotic animals," he advises. "I have graduate hours of human and animal pathology, and I gone through a three-year post-doctoral fellowship in comparative pathology."
Now you really do have the rest of the story!

General Betray-Us and MoveOn.org
I have often been critical of MoveOn.org, basically because I feel,
for the most part that they support Democrats to the detriment of
democracy. However, MoveOn.org was a big help to me at Camp Casey in
August '05 and organized the thousands of candlelight vigils that
occurred across the country. I will always be grateful to them for
I had a policy when my children were younger. I would always try to
catch them doing something "right" (sharing, being kind, etc) and I
would praise them and give them a treat. In that vein, I have to give
my 100% support to MoveOn.org in regards to their right-on ad in the
NYT that has become even the object of a Senate denouncement.
It must be hard for MoveOn.org to have 21 Democratic Senators vote to
denounce the ad when MoveOn.org has been so supportive of the party.
However, I don't think that it's appropriate for the Senate to be
voting on newspaper ads, when it is a clear 1st Amendment right of
anyone in our representative republic to place such ads, whether one
agrees with them or not, and with almost half the Senate Dems voting
to denounce MoveOn's freedom of speech and the Dem leadership taking
impeachment "off the table" and giving BushCo more latitude to spy on
us, I wonder which part of our Constitution the Dems will defile next?
Today, George, in his unbridled and un-matched arrogance and just
abject stupidity called the MoveOn ad "disgusting." What I find more
disgusting is a cowardly Commander in Chief and all of his supposed
underlings lying to our country and the world and sending our young
troops to fight, die, be wounded and kill innocent people when they
were too "busy" to do the same in their mistake of a war: Vietnam.
What I find disgusting is CNN (where I just saw Eli Parisier of MoveOn
debate a pro-war person) rarely criticizes the occupation or shows the
tragic consequences of this war and they are raising money so a poor
Iraqi boy can have reconstructive surgery on his badly burned face.
That is great, but what about examining the reasons little Youssif was
burned in the first place and start calling for an immediate
withdrawal of troops? What about the millions of other Iraqis who have
been wounded or displaced? Who is telling their stories and raising
money for them to be whole and have homes?
What I find disgusting is General Betray-Us allowing himself to be
used as a political force field for the lying administration and lying
himself. Sectarian violence is not down 80%, the General Accounting
Office report and the fact that hundreds of Iraqis are killed every
month 50,000 leave their homes on a monthly basis directly contradict
those "facts." The only reason some places are safer in Iraq is
because the neighborhoods have been ethnically cleansed and the
sectarian militias are providing security to small geographic areas.
In the very violent south; Shi'a Mahdi are fighting Shi'a Badr. It is
a disaster that needs to be faced and solved now, not put away until
the spring or prolonged so Dems can get the White House back in '08.
General Betray-Us has not only betrayed America and his oath of
service, but he has betrayed the very troops he should care about more
than being an "ass-kissing little chicken-shit" to a Commander in
Chief who has spent years betraying the troops. It is time to truly
support our troops and start withdrawing them immediately. Not to "pre-
surge" levels but to "pre-invasion" levels. It is time to listen to
the people of Iraq and force the mercenary killers and other
contractors to leave and give the people of Iraq back their jobs (50%
unemployment rate in some areas, some areas higher) and their country.
The occupation of Iraq is a disaster and I applaud MoveOn for moving a
little closer to the true "anti-war" movement and encourage them to
come with us farther.
Anyone who is concerned with the rapid slide to fascism should be
supporting MoveOn in this battle.
Anyone who cares about democracy over Democrats (or Rethugs) should
join me in supporting MoveOn in this particular struggle and in
bringing MoveOn more fully to the table with the peace movement.
Thanks MoveOn for speaking for the majority of Americans and please
stick to your so-called guns. The struggle is worthwhile!
The healthy newborn's death was a tragic shock, but just as stunning was the cause: He had overdosed on morphine, pathologists found.
Neither the breast-fed infant nor his mother had been given the powerful narcotic. But due to a quirk of the mother's genetic makeup, her breast milk contained morphine that built up to a fatal dose as the baby nursed.
That single case from a medical journal spurred the Food and Drug Administration to issue a general alert to doctors. The advisory was one of a series of recent FDA communications about the role of individual genetics in determining whether a treatment decision will be effective, safe - or potentially deadly.
The mother in the case reported by Toronto doctors had not received morphine, but she was prescribed codeine for pain after delivery.
Doctor willy nilly passing out of codeine to pregnant mothers is common. Thousands of babies have died because of this, but most hospitals, adhering to the Code of Silence, coverup the cause.
In this case, the Mother was a blood type O, whose body metaolized the drugs much more rapidly. Blood type O mothers should not use codeine.
In most people, codeine slowly breaks down in the body into morphine. But after the baby's death, a genetic test revealed that the mother's body metabolized drugs much more rapidly than usual.
The FDA called attention in August to three such diagnostic tests that detect differences among patients that might change their responses to drugs. One test identifies rapid drug metabolizers. Another spots a potentially fatal sensitivity to a commonly prescribed blood-thinning drug. A third test indicates which HIV-infected patients are most likely to benefit from a new drug. Monogram Biosciences Inc. of South San Francisco sells a commercial version of the HIV test.
Diagnostics companies such as Monogram are avidly looking for variations in genetic traits that might predict the performance of drugs in different individuals. This approach, known as pharmacogenomics, has been hailed as the route to a future era of highly profitable medicine.
In fact, such a blood type test, to allow doctors to push drugs on mothers will be a disaster, because the blood type of the mother, is no prediction of the blood type of the baby. A blood type A Mom can give birth to a blood type O baby. So the docs would give the Mom codine, but the baby would still die from the baby absorbing the drug from the blood of the mother & the urine of the baby.
What does the baby live on for 9 months. Not just the blood from the Mom, but the baby also drink all of its own Water of Life. It own perfect medicine. That's right, the baby drinks all of its own urine for 9 months.
They usually do not tell you that. It is true, but that truth is hidden from the American public. Why? Heaven knows. But now that babies are dying by the thousands every year from the drugs, legal & illegal, being taken by the Mom, it is time to alert the public to the truth.
Mothers milk is not safe for babies to drink. What is safer, is the Mother urine and the Babies urine.
Yes, it is true. It is safer, due to the way the body make urine, for the baby to be fed the babies own urine. If you give your baby Mothers milk, the babies body will filter out the drugs & so you will now have
Also, if a woman is having trouble breast feeding, or expects to, by drinking all her own urine for 3 days, the hormones & proteins in her own perfect urine will trigger her body to suddenly make breast milk. Yes.
Ideally, patients would receive the treatment best matched to the idiosyncrasies of their own DNA, ie., blood type.
Drugs could also be chosen based on the genetic characteristics of an individual's mutated tumor cells, or of the microbe causing an infection. Monogram's Trofile test reveals genetic variations among the strains of HIV infecting an individual.
Back to the Future. This article in the SF Chronicle, makes it sound like this companies idea of making drugs based on the genetic characteristics of the DNA of the microbe, is new, when in fact that idea, that method, is over 5,000 years old.
Healers in India wrote a book about this very topic, treating disease by making specific drugs for the blood type of the person & the DNA of the cancer turmor, ( on strips of bamboo, the oldest known book in the world ), over 5,000 years ago. They developed a way for the body to make its own drugs for treating its own cancer, yes, over 5,000 years ago. And their system was FREE. And they were treating AIDS & cancer, using this modality in the year 3,000 BC. You can read about this in the new book, The Water of Life, by van der Kroon. To order a copy of if, go on line, or send me $32. Paul Kangas, 15 Boardman, SF, Ca 94103. In Biology there is nothing new.
On Aug. 6, the FDA said such a test should be used to identify the patients whose virus population would most likely be suppressed by the new Pfizer drug Selzentry. The agency approved Selzentry for HIV infection that has become resistant to older drugs.
The FDA has been trying to accelerate progress in pharmacogenomics by encouraging drug developers to find genetic patterns in responses to treatment. Pfizer collaborated with Monogram to find the patient group that responded best to Selzentry.
Back to the Future.
The full realization of personalized medicine across, many disease categories, seemed like a futuristic dream.
And for Western medicine, it still is. But Eastern Medicine & Naturalopatic Medicine, it is Back to the Future.
Over 5,000 years ago, Healers in India discovered the use of the Water of Life. Your own perfect medicine. In which your body makes you a new drug every day. Every time you get exposed to a new disease, your body immediatly makes you a new medicine to counter that disease, one hour after you are exposed. Who needs dangerous drugs like Coumadin or warfarin, a rat poison, when your body makes YOU the perfect drug. Free.
This is how a socialized medical system can create a Free medical system.
However, to prescribe the right doses of one of the trickiest medicines in widespread use. Millions of patients receive the blood-thinner Coumadin, also sold under the generic name warfarin, to prevent blood clots, heart attacks and stroke. Give too little, and the drug won't have the protective effect. But too high a dose can cause potentially fatal internal bleeding. In fact, this drug has killed tens of thousands of children. It should be banned. It must be banned. But to ban warfarin, we must first educate parents in how to use their own safe urine, from their child, to treat the child, before the disease become dominant. Prevention works. Teaching kids to recycle their own urine is possible, if parents will lead the way. I should talk. I have 3 kids. I have been trying to teach them the value to recycling for 15 years. They have not adopted my ideas yet. I have dreams.
The FDA advised doctors to consider using a test that identifies patients whose genetic variations can increase the danger of bleeding. Information on the test will be included in the drug's label, the agency announced on Aug. 16. "This means personalized medicine is no longer an abstract concept but has moved into the mainstream," FDA clinical pharmacology chief Larry Lesko said, according to the Associated Press.
However, the FDA's action on warfarin was not necessarily an immediate boon to the eager companies offering the genetic test. The agency stopped short of recommending that all patients on warfarin be tested - an approach resisted by certain doctors who are experienced in stroke management.
Members of a doctors' group called the Anticoagulation Forum had told Lesko they wanted to see proof that patients would actually have better outcomes if their warfarin doses were based on the genetic evaluation. The medical group warned that doctors who relied too heavily on the tests might neglect the rigorous blood monitoring that now signals whether patients are receiving the best warfarin dose.
In its announcement on warfarin, the FDA advised doctors to continue to use established methods of monitoring patients, and to consider not only genetic traits but other factors that can influence warfarin's performance in individuals, including age and diet.
The controversy over warfarin illustrates the complexity of developing genetic tests and finding their best use in medical practice. Part of the calculus is cost - health plans might be reluctant to pay for genetic screening of 10,000 patients to find a single individual in danger of a severe reaction. But some tests will offer substantial savings as well as significantly better care for patients, said Robert Epstein, chief medical officer at Medco, a major pharmacy benefit management company that helps health insurance companies control costs. Epstein said genetic tests for patients on warfarin could be extremely cost-effective, because they might help avoid expensive hospitalizations.
"We find that upwards of 20 percent end up in the hospital," Epstein said.
Medco is collaborating with a Mayo Clinic lab on a study evaluating patient outcomes and cost savings when warfarin prescribing is guided by the genetic test.
In the case of codeine for pain related to labor, the FDA did not recommend genetic testing for all nursing mothers. While the test is the only way to know whether a mother is an ultra-rapid metabolizer, the FDA said, more needs to be known about the test's ability to predict the rate at which specific individuals will convert codeine to morphine. "The test result alone may not correctly predict if a mother's breast milk will have too much morphine," the agency said.
For now, doctors who prescribe codeine should advise breast-feeding mothers to watch their babies for signs of morphine overdose, including excess sleepiness, limpness, and difficulties in breast-feeding or breathing, the FDA said.
Even if the genetic test is never widely used to screen nursing mothers on codeine, it may find a broad use in medical practice. The test evaluates genetic variations in a liver enzyme, CYP2D6, that plays a role in the metabolism of many commonly prescribed drugs, including certain anti-depressants, anti-psychotics and the beta blockers used to treat heart disorders. Some doctors use the test now to choose the right drug doses for psychiatric patients. The Swiss drug manufacturer Roche sells an FDA-approved version of the test called AmpliChip CYP450, which also evaluates a second liver enzyme, CYP2C19, that affects drug metabolism.
Medco's Epstein said the next highly anticipated FDA action related to personalized medicine may concern the use of CYP2D6 testing in prescribing tamoxifen, which can help prevent a recurrence of breast cancer after initial treatment. Some women with variations of the CYP2D6 enzyme can't break tamoxifen down easily to release its cancer-fighting component, so they get little or no benefit from the drug. Epstein said the test might help doctors identify the women who should take other medicines called aromatase inhibitors.
Meanwhile, one of Mongram's continuing projects is an attempted improvement on one of the earliest tests in personalized medicine. Long-established tests determine which women have a type of breast cancer that will respond to the Genentech drug Herceptin. In some women who take Herceptin, however, the cancer comes back after about a year, said Monogram's chief scientific officer Christos Petropoulos. The diagnostics company is trying to develop a test that will identify that group of women, so doctors can decide whether to give them supplemental drugs at an earlier point.

8,000 Army & Marine soldiers desert during Iraq war!
By Bill Nichols, USA TODAY
At least 8,000 members of the all-volunteer U.S. military have deserted since the Iraq war began, Pentagon records show.
Since fall 2003, 4,387 Army soldiers, 3,454 Navy sailors and 82 Air Force personnel have deserted. The Marine Corps does not track the number of desertions each year but listed 1,455 Marines in desertion status last September, the end of fiscal 2005, says Capt. Jay Delarosa, a Marine Corps spokesman.
As Marine General Smedley Butler said, Most Marines are just Sheep, too brain washed to know how to think.
Most are too young to know they are caught in a scam. Before they wake up, they are dead.
Most soldiers, especially in the front lines, are just sheep, willingly be lead by Bush to the slaughter.
Desertion records are kept by fiscal year, so there are no figures from the beginning of the war in March 2003 until that fall.
Some lawyers who represent deserters say the war in Iraq is driving more soldiers to question their service and that the Pentagon is cracking down on deserters.
"The last thing they want is for people to think ... that this is like Vietnam," says Tod Ensign, head of Citizen Soldier, an anti-war group that offers legal aid to deserters. (Related story: Marines hunt Vietnam-era deserters)
The Army, Navy and Air Force reported 7,978 desertions in 2001, compared with 3,456 in 2005. The Marine Corps showed 1,603 Marines in desertion status in 2001. That had declined by 148 in 2005.
The desertion rate was much higher during the Vietnam era. The Army saw a high of 33,094 deserters in 1971 — 3.4% of the Army force. But there was a draft and the active-duty force was 2.7 million.
Desertions in 2005 represent 0.24% of the 1.4 million U.S. forces.
Opposition to the war prompts a small fraction of desertions, says Army spokeswoman Maj. Elizabeth Robbins. "People always desert, and most do it because they don't adapt well to the military," she says. The vast majority of desertions happen inside the USA, Robbins says. There is only one known case of desertion in Iraq.
Most deserters return within months, without coercion. Commander Randy Lescault, spokesman for the Naval Personnel Command, says that between 2001 and 2005, 58% of Navy deserters walked back in. Of the rest, the most are apprehended during traffic stops. Penalties range from other-than-honorable discharges to death for desertion during wartime.
Few are court-martialed.
Cure for Parkinsons disease found? And Autism?
Why don,t Amish children get Autism?
Parkinsons is caused by mercury poisoning from dental fillings and other sources of mercury, that people come in contact with.
That is one of the reasons Dentists have such a high rate of Parkinsons disease.
Another major source of mercury poisoning, is vaccines. Vaccines cause autism because vaccines contain mercury.
By studying populations in the world where they are too poor to have vaccines, you will notice that their children do not get autism.
Dentists work with mercury. This causes dentists to also have the highest rate of suicides. And divorce.
people who refuse vaccinations, for spiritual reasons, or scientific reasons, like the Amish, do not get Autism.
The Amish do not believe in health insurance, and do not join the military. They do not use electricity and do not drive cars.
As a result of their scientific reasoning, they live 20 years longer than the average person, and have the lowest rates of Autism & suicide of any group in the world.
Michael Moores new movie SiCKO, would have been so much better, if he had done just 3 minutes on the Amish.
OK, lets say you have been vaccinated & want to avoid Parkinsons. What can you do?
The best treatment for Parkinsons is 3,000 mcg of Selenium taken daily with breakfast.
Take octacosanol at 300 mcg 3x day, and 1 table spoon full of flax oil,
Cod liver oil, 1 table spoon full, 3 x day,
flax seed meal 3x day,
1-methionine at 5 gm/day,
1-tyrosine at 100 mg/day,
DL-phenoaline at 100 mg 3x day,
vit. B-1 at 200 mg 3x day,
vit B-6 at 100 mg 3x day,
and pancreatic enzymes at 200 mg 3x day before meals,
