Tamiflu- A Hoax?

Tamiflu anti-viral drug revealed as complete hoax;

Roche studies based on scientific fraud http://www.naturalnews.com/027734_Tamiflu_Roche.html

When it comes to selling chemicals that claim to treat H1N1 swine flu, the pharmaceutical industry’s options are limited to two:

Vaccines and anti-virals.

The most popular anti-viral, by far, is Tamiflu, a drug that’s actually derived from a Traditional Chinese Medicine herb called star anise. But Tamiflu is no herb. It’s a potentially fatal concentration of isolated chemical components that have essentially been bio-pirated from Chinese medicine. And when you isolate and concentrate specific chemicals in these herbs, you lose the value (and safety) of full-spectrum herbal medicine. That didn’t stop Tamiflu’s maker, Roche, from trying to find a multi-billion-dollar market for its drug. In order to tap into that market, however, Roche needed to drum up some evidence that Tamiflu was both safe and effective. Roche engages in science fraud Roche claims there are ten studies providing Tamiflu is both safe and effective. According to the company, Tamiflu has all sorts of benefits, including a 61% reduction in hospital admissions by people who catch the flu and then get put on Tamiflu. The problem with these claims is that they aren’t true.

They were simply invented by Roche. A groundbreaking article recently published in the British Medical Journal accuses Roche of misleading governments and physicians over the benefits of Tamifl

Out of the ten studies cited by Roche, it turns out, only two were ever published in science journals. And where is the original data from those two studies? Lost. The data has disappeared. Files were discarded. The researcher of one study says he never even saw the data. Roche took care of all that, he explains.

So the Cochrane Collaboration, tasked with reviewing the data behind Tamiflu, decided to investigate. After repeated requests to Roche for the original study data, they remained stonewalled. The only complete data set they received was from an unpublished study of 1,447 adults which showed that Tamiflu was no better than placebo. Data from the studies that claimed Tamiflu was effective was apparently lost forever. As The Atlantic reports, that’s when former employees of Adis International (essentially a Big Pharma P.R. company) shocked the medical world by announcing they had been hired to ghost-write the studies for Roche. It gets even better: These researchers were told what to write by Roche! As one of these ghostwriters told the British Medical Journal: “The Tamiflu accounts had a list of key messages that you had to get in. It was run by the [Roche] marketing department and you were answerable to them. In the introduction …I had to say what a big problem influenza is. I’d also have to come to the conclusion that Tamiflu was the answer.” In other words, the Roche marketing department ran the science and told researchers what conclusions to draw from the clinical trials. Researchers hired to conduct the science were controlled by the marketing puppeteers. No matter what they found in the science, they had already been directed to reach to conclusion that “Tamiflu was the answer.” Now, I don’t know about you, but where I come from, we call this “science fraud.” And as numerous NaturalNews investigations have revealed, this appears to be the status quo in the pharmaceutical industry.

Virtually none of the “science” conducted by drug companies can be trusted at all because it really isn’t science in the first place. It’s just propaganda being dressed up to look like science. Sadly, even the CDC has been fooled by this clinical trial con. As stated by author Shannon Brownlee in The Atlantic: “…the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention appears to be operating in some alternative universe, where valid science no longer matters to public policy.

The agency’s flu recommendations are in lockstep with Roche’s claims that the drug can be life-saving — despite the FDA’s findings and despite the lack of studies to prove such a claim. What’s more, neither the CDC nor the FDA has demanded the types of scientific studies that could definitively determine whether or not the company’s claims are true: that Tamiflu reduces the risk of serious complications and saves lives. Nancy Cox, who heads the CDC’s flu program, told us earlier this year she opposes a placebo-controlled study (in which one half of patients would be given Tamiflu and the other half would be given placebo), because the drug’s benefits are already proven.” Did you catch that last line? The CDC isn’t interested in testing Tamiflu because “the drug’s benefits are already proven.” Except they aren’t. But this is how the pharmaceutical industry operates: Step 1) Fabricate evidence that your drug works. Step 2) Use that fraudulent evidence to get your drug approved. Step 3) Use fear to create consumer demand for your drug (and encourage governments to stockpile it). Step 4) Avoid any actual scientific testing by claiming the drug has already been proven to work (and cite your original fraudulent studies to back you up). This is the recipe the CDC is following right now with Tamiflu. It’s a recipe of scientific stupidity and circular logic, of course, but that seems to be strangely common in the medical community these days.

Even the FDA says Tamiflu doesn’t work The FDA, remarkably, hasn’t entirely given in to the Tamiflu hoax. They required Roche to print the following disclaimer on Tamiflu lables — a disclaimer that openly admits the drug has never been proven to work: “Tamiflu has not been proven to have a positive impact on the potential consequences (such as hospitalizations, mortality, or economic impact) of seasonal, avian, or pandemic influenza.”

Stop Smoking infront of Children

The next logical step…. “stop poisoning your children!”

http://www.telegrap h.co.uk/news/ newstopics/ politics/ 6803981/Parents- face\ -ban-on-smoking- in-front- of-children. html

A ban on parents smoking in front of their children is being considered by the Government. By Andrew Porter, Political Editor Published: 9:17PM GMT 13 Dec 2009

Stopping parents lighting up at home, or in cars, if they are with their children will form part of an aggressive new anti-smoking campaign to be launched by ministers this week. The Government will also announce it plans to go ahead with a ban on all advertising on tobacco packaging. That measure would mean in future cigarettes could only be purchased under the counter in packets. They would be marked only with government health warnings. At the heart of the drive is a new commitment to halve the number of adults who smoke by 2020.

Gymnema Sylvester

Repairs pancreas cells!

Researchers at India’s University of Madras discovered that high doses of gymnema extracts may actually help repair—and grow new pancreatic beta cells. This is PHENOMENAL news! Why?

Because these beta cells play a crucial role in producing and secreting insulin! According to
the researchers:

“Few other substances, synthetic or natural, offer such promise for reversing beta
cell damage.”

Saving lives

How The Tenth Became The First

How The Tenth Became The FirstIn the old days, few people anywhere in the world could read or write. In China, parents hoped they could make a little bit more money so they could send their sons to a teacher to learn how to read and write. If they studied very, very hard and passed the Imperial Examinations, they could win posts in the government. This brought respect, glory, and power to the whole family. However, the examinations were extremely difficult. Many students took the examinations over and over until they were old men, but never passed.

One year, the brothers Song Jiao and Song Ji went to the capital together to take the examinations. On the way, they met a monk, who looked carefully at Song Jiao and exclaimed, “I can tell by looking at your features that you have saved many, many lives. According to your original fortune, you should fail in the imperial examinations, but because you have saved so many lives, this year you will win the highest place in the entire empire. Let this poor monk be the first to congratulate this future official.”

Song Jiao thought this was strange. “When did I ever save many lives?”

The monk said, “Once you saved ants in distress.”

“What? You mean saving some measly ants means saving lives?”

“Exactly. All living creatures have lives and fates, even a bug as lowly as an ant. Your brother was originally destined to win the top score in these examinations, but you will not do worse than he.”

The Song brothers could hardly believe this. As they walked away, Song Ji asked Song Jiao, “Did you really save a bunch of ants?”

“Yes,” his brother answered, “Once I saw some ants about to get drowned, so I made a little bridge out of a piece of bamboo and they got away.”

The imperial examinations were more important to them than any ants or monk’s predictions, and they forgot all about it as they made their way to the capital and did their last minute cramming.

When all of the test papers had been graded, the results were announced to the Emperor. Song Ji had won the highest score in the entire empire. Song Jiao was in tenth place – of course this was also a very high score. The Emperor examined the list of the highest scores.

“This will not do,” the Emperor said, “Song Ji has won first place, ranking higher than his elder brother, Song Jiao. It is not natural for the younger brother to be exalted above the elder brother. Switch Song Jiao to the first place, and rank Song Ji tenth.”

The Emperor’s command was carried out. When the brothers heard about the switch, they remembered what the monk had said, and burst out laughing. On their way home to tell their parents the wonderful news about the examination, they made a special trip to give their thanks to the old monk, and compliment him on his wisdom.

Before long, the story spread all over China, and everyone knew about the brother who ants boosted to first place.

Effects on Nicotine on Smokers

‘Higher risk’ of lung cancer from smoking first thing

Smoking cigarette

It is the time of day you light up which seems important

Smokers who light up on waking display higher levels of nicotine than those who wait, regardless of the number of cigarettes smoked, US research shows.

Scientists measured smokers’ levels of cotinine, a by-product of nicotine which has been shown to reflect the risk of developing lung cancer.

Waiting until you had eaten breakfast reduced the amount of this chemical.

The Penn State College of Medicine study suggests the earlier smokers may need more help to give up.

The reasons for the differing levels were unclear, but are thought likely to reflect a more intense way of smoking among those who light up first thing – as their need may be greater than those who can wait.

More than 250 healthy people who smoked every day were included in the study, which was published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention.

Waking desire

Among smokers who consumed 20 cigarettes each day, cotinine levels varied dramatically – with the top levels nearly 75 times higher than the lowest levels.

Not all smokers are the same and approaches to smoking reduction may need to account for individual smoking behaviours such as the intensity and frequency of puffing, cravings, and physiological symptoms

The highest levels were seen among those who lit up within 30 minutes of waking – categorised as high dependency.

“These people may require a more intensive intervention than other smokers to help them quit smoking on a sustained or permanent basis,” said report author Joshua Muscat, professor of public health at Penn State College of Medicine.

“Not all smokers are the same and approaches to smoking reduction may need to account for individual smoking behaviours such as the intensity and frequency of puffing, cravings, and physiological symptoms.”

A spokesperson for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation welcomed the research, which it said would help further understanding of smoking habits and addiction to tobacco.

“It is however a small study (252 participants), and therefore the findings should be taken with caution, and we are not entirely sure that any major conclusions on the future of smoking cessation can be made from this.

“We concur with the authors that more research is needed in this area.”
