Greed, power, the medical pharmaceutical complex and even organized religion (all good examples of greed and power) appear to be destroying our society, our physical and emotional health and wealth, and are corrupting more and more people every day.

The government needs to begin to protect its citizens instead of protecting the interests of the big businesses they were designed to regulate.
The FDA, FTC, EPA and others are doing far too little of what they were designed to do. Even worse, they are doing a great deal of what they were never requested or empowered to do!

The dental associations, medical associations, diabetes associations, dietetics association and cancer associations either cover up sugars deadly effects, or else stopped talking about the hazards of sugar after huge donations were given to them by the sugar industry and the sweetened food corporate giants.
Watch SWEET SUICIDE, the movie by Nancy Appleton, PhD. It is available from www.ppnf.org

We must always look at total overall effects and not minuscule supposed benefits.
Any study looking at drug benefits versus side effects MUST examine mortality from ALL CAUSES, or else the results are meaningless. Too often, a drug is presented as reducing some fatal condition without showing how many other fatal conditions it is actually INCREASING with the end result being that those who DO NOT take it will live longer and better.

My favorite quotations, which clearly explain WHY we have these problems with both physicians, dentists, pharmaceutical manufacturers’s, registered dieticians and big business are as follows:

It Is Impossible for Anyone to Begin to Learn What He Thinks He Already Knows.
Epictetus (55 Ad - 135 Ad) (Greek Born Roman Philosopher)

It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.
Upton Sinclair

Beliefs that are not true, remain untrue regardless of how strong the beliefs are, how many initials the believers have after their names, or how well known or highly respected the believers may be. David Getoff 2001

There is a principle which is a bar against all information,
Which is proof against all arguments, and
Which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance.
That principle is- contempt prior to investigation
Herbert Spencer (27 April 1820 – 8 December 1903) English philosopher

What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know,
it's what we know for sure that just ain't so.
Mark Twain

Let's be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus. There is no such thing as consensus science. If it's consensus, it isn't science. If it's science, it isn't consensus. Period.
Michael Crichton

If fire retardant chemicals on children’s clothing and on our furniture, may reduce deaths by 100 persons per year, but increase incurable neurological conditions and deaths by many thousands per year, THEY SHOULD NOT BE USED.

Children may grow up to become better, more well adjusted adults (and parents) when they get properly reprimanded for things they do wrong as children. This may include a yell or a slap from a parent with the possible resultant crying, (generally from the idea of being slapped not from pain), so long as it is not taken to the point of being cruel or too severe. I feel that it is entirely possible that it IS NOT our violent TV shows and movies which are to blame for escalating violence in our society.

There was plenty of violence in these areas in the 50's and 60's when I was growing up. Our problems may instead stem from other equally disturbing problems in this increasingly PC society.

A few include:
The fact that a child who deserves either a failing grade, a scolding or even a mild slap from a teacher will generally not get any of these. The teacher is afraid of being fired for any of these. I have many teachers and even professors as my patients. They often tell me that a huge percentage of students who are clearly failing to learn the material, are given passing grades because they are instructed to do so or will because they will be investigated if they fail too many students. Our PC society is turning wrong into right.

If we teach “affirmative action” which means specifically that one person gets preferential treatment over another, but not due to skills or knowledge, due to PAST history, problems or prejudices, we have just clearly taught that TWO wrongs make a RIGHT. Is this the way to raise honest ethical children into adulthood?, I think not.

The (sort of) opposite end of the spectrum is also causing problems. If a teacher sees that a student needs comforting for some reason, the poor teacher is afraid for their job lest they do something good, like give the student a helpful comforting hug. Hugs and human touch even have research as to their benefits and yet OH NO! Don’t touch that student or you may be brought up on charges, since you might have done so as a sexual advance. Good lord, our society is falling apart with nonsensical political correctness issues being at the forefront of the problem.
Since I am a nutrition professional, I do need to add that food choices and sub clinical nutrient deficiencies are also a MAJOR cause of all of societies emotional problems. Just watching the video Hidden Dangers in Kids Meals will show anyone just how much we can QUICKLY change if we were to mandate that school served healthy food to our children. This entire issue will continue to get worse if PC, fast foods, improper nutrition and nonsense laws and lawsuits continue to occur and be promoted as beneficial. I hope I am alive to see this all change.

Politics is so warped, that even when a two term president leaves our country in a financial disaster, the new president is already being blamed for what the past president left him. If every large corporation elected a new president and then did not give the new president at least a year to see if he/she appeared to be able to do a better job, they would be electing a new one 12 times a year and soon me bankrupt since nothing major can be done that quickly. We badly need a third party with candidates who care more about our country and our constitution. The two we have now might just as well be rolled into one and called the “we only care about ourselves and the special interest groups”, party.

If artificial sweeteners have been shown to NOT HELP IN WEIGHT REDUCTION based on multiple scientific studies, they should NOT BE ALLOWED to be used in weight loss foods and should be required to tell the truth.

If the best examination of all available research on handguns (published in More Guns, Less Crime by Professor John Lott) clearly shows that Legal handgun ownership laws distinctly REDUCE violent crime rates in every state studied, then we should not keep telling the public the opposite.

If nutrient supplementation research has shown that in many well documented studies, that many nutrients and supplements work better than drugs to address many health (disease) conditions, the public should be told, the physicians should be taught, and the FDA’s violations of our first amendment rights should be stopped and harshly adjudicated.

If the FDA continues to ban the use of valid, proven, published research on nutrients, claiming that whenever a food or supplement is shown to help in any disease, it is then automatically classified as an unapproved drug, the FDA needs to have their hands slapped and their powers reduced in this area.

If research CLEARLY shows that sugar consumption greatly increases the incidence of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, etc.,the public, the completely misled medical profession, and the dieticians need to be required to learn this and reverse the ignorant nonsense they tell their patients.

If a low fat diet has NOT been shown to aid in weight loss, but a high fat diet has, then the public and our physicians need to learn this.

If the research clearly shows that our elderly live the healthiest and the longest lives when they have HIGHER cholesterol, then physicians must STOP prescribing cholesterol lowering drugs for the elderly or they should lose their licenses.

If an aspirin a day has NOT been shown to extend life, but simply to alter the cause of death, the public should be told and the medical profession should be made to read the research instead of receiving their “education” from drug company marketing representatives.

If vaccinations HAVE NOT been properly researched, and may be CAUSING more health conditions then they “might” be preventing, the public and the medical profession need to be shown this clinical evidence and research. Informed consent needs to be given BEFORE any vaccination.

To learn the facts that I and other informed professionals know about vaccinations, but that both you and our physicians are NOT being taught, I refer you to do some exceptional clinical findings and research.
You will need to read some well referenced books, listen to some exceptional recordings, and view a couple of well done DVD’s. They are referenced below:

Vaccines, What CDC documents and Science Reveals by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny
The Sanctity of Human Blood Vaccination is not Immunization by Dr Tim O’Shea
The recordings of the National Vaccine Information Center conferences 1997, 2000, & 2002, available form www.AudioTapes.com

Great books about how we are mislead by lies, ignorance, and marketing and what this means to our health, include:
Trust us We’re Experts by Sheldon Rampton & John Stauber
Don’t Believe it by Alexandra Kitty
Malignant Medical Myths by Joel Kauffman, PhD
A Nation of Sheep by William Lederer
Toxic Psychiatry by Peter Breggin, MD
Confessions of a Medica Heretic by Robert Mendelsohn, MD
Racketeering in Medicine By James Carter, MD
The Truth about the Drug Companies by Marcia Angell, MD
The Hundred Year Lie by Fitzgerald

A short (but growing) list of important Links to

Has a MUST SEE video on what they have uncovered about the 911 disaster. If you can’t take the truth when it disagrees with what you believe, then you had better NOT watch this DVD. It is called 911 Blueprint for Truth Research Edition. It is the box in the upper left of the home page.

Zeitgeist and the more recent Zeitgeist Addendum are true movies our current age of information and emerging truths. You of course have the right to agree or disagree with any part of both movies, Don’t stick you head in the sand like too many people. Watch them both even though they are long and chock full of information. They are free to watch on line or you can buy the DVD’s and have a Zeitgeist party in your home.
Knowledge is power and I am VERY glad I watched these fascinating but controversial movies
