The Department of Homeland Security plans to build a high-risk virus research center in the heart of America

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is set to begin construction on a new high-risk bio-weapons research facility on the campus of Kansas State University in Manhattan, though critics say the decision is fraught with risk because of the potential for damage from nearby earthquake fault lines.
In a statement on its Web site, DHS said it needs the new facility to replace an aging one located at Greenport, N.Y. That facility, known as the Plum Island Animal Disease Center, has been in operation since 1954 and is nearing the end of its useful life.
According to the department, $54 million has been approved for the construction of the proposed National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility. The new facility will feature research on biolevel 3 and 4 viruses – some without any known cures – and other potentially dangerous materials, though department officials have downplayed any potential threats.
The problem, critics say, is the location and the inherent seismic and weather-related disasters that could befall the facility, wreaking havoc on the surrounding population and beyond – issues the government seems to be downplaying.
Painting lipstick on a pig
“The United States works on the frontline of livestock animal health research to defend against foreign animal, emerging, and zoonotic diseases that could threaten the U.S. livestock industry, food supply, and public health,” says Homeland Security Under Secretary for Science and Technology Tara O’Toole, in a departmental risk assessment posted online. “To address congressional requirements, this detailed, updated risk assessment reaffirms that we can build a safe and secure facility to meet this important mission.”
The department contends that, according to its risk analysis, “calculated risks have been significantly reduced by incorporating mitigation measures into the risk assessment and updating the analysis to allow for a cumulative risk calculation.”
In other words, DHS says it is prepared to adopt a facility design that includes “significant changes beyond the industry standard to reduce risk.” Reducing risk isn’t, of course, the same as eliminating it.
‘Groundbreaking’ facility?
All of this babble is, of course, designed to make us feel better about having a plant that conducts research on incurable viruses located smack dab in the middle of a volatile region of the country. What the department isn’t saying is that the part of Kansas being considered for this new facility is prone to a number of natural disasters and occurrences, each of which could cause considerable damage.
“Manhattan, Kansas, faces a number of worrisome hazards that should influence the architecture and construction of the BSL-4 laboratory. These hazards include flooding, dam failure, earthquakes, and tornadoes,” says an assessment by the Suburban Emergency Management Project (SEMP), located in Chicago.
The last time the region suffered major flood damage was in 1951, but, SEMP notes, the area is still in a flood plain and, given the record floods last summer in neighboring Missouri, the potential for disaster is there.
Also, SEMP notes that while “Kansas is not widely known as seismically active,” it “boasts the Humboldt fault zone, which underlies Turtle Creek dam and Manhattan,” a region the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has deemed a “localized seismic hot spot.”
“An estimated maximum earthquake magnitude of 6.6 could occur in the area of the Tuttle Creek dam, causing liquefaction of the foundation sand beneath the dam, large deformations of the dam, and dam failure,” said SEMP’s assessment of the proposed new biodefense facility. “The consequences of a breach of the Tuttle Creek dam include rushing water at 381,000 cubic feet/second (six times the rate in 1993) moving toward a population at risk of 13,000 people.”
In addition, the area is known for its tornadoes. According to the Oklahoma Climatological Survey, the region in and around the proposed site features an average of five to seven tornadoes a year.
“Riley County, Kansas, home to Manhattan, is well known for tornado touchdowns. For example, on June 11, 2008, Manhattan sustained extensive damages but no injuries when an F4 nighttime tornado ripped through it,” said the SEMP assessment.

I was recently informed of an image of John Key handing out grants at the freemason lodge so I began to look a little deeper and found loads of pics of him. Any thoughts or info on this would be greatly appreciated =]

“Sir Bernard Fergusson was a Freemason and he is the only one I know of that was a Governor General, others may have been so.
One interesting fact however is that Richard Seddon as the Premier of New Zealand around the turn of the century encouraged the Government of the day to financially support the building of the Catholic Cathedral in Christchurch.  Look into the history there.  He was the Grand Master of the Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons at the time.

Huge solar burst due to hit earth tonight

For everyone following me on facebook would of seen my posts yesterday about the huge solar mass ejection (CME) the largest in over 5 years

The mainstream media seem to of actually mentioned this for the first time so I am guessing they can forsee problems caused from it, what problems am I talking about exactly?? Well what follows is the government verified causality of such events but what they are missing is the fact that they can cause earthquakes and megga weather disturbances

Following is the mainstream media release from today (even though the event happened yesterday)

 

http://www.stuff.co.nz/science/6543062/Largest-solar-flare-in-five-years-races-toward-Earth#share

A strong solar storm is expected to hit Earth. Experts warn it could could disrupt power grids, satellite navigations systems and plane routes. Laura Westbrook reports.

Solar flare, March 6

NASA
RIPPLES OF ENERGY: The sun erupts with one of the largest solar flares of this solar cycle on March 6, 2012.

The largest solar flare in five years is racing toward Earth, threatening to disrupt power grids, GPS and flights, while also putting on a brilliant aurora display.

The sun erupted on Tuesday, and the effects should start smacking Earth later tonight, according to forecasters at the US Space Weather Prediction Center. They say the flare is growing as it speeds outward from the sun.

“It’s hitting us right in the nose,” said Joe Kunches, a scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The solar storm was likely to last through Friday, but the region that erupted could still send more blasts our way, Kunches said. He was predicting brilliant auroras.

Astronomer John Field, from the Carter Observatory in Wellington, said he was “crossing his fingers”, hoping auroras would be spotted in the sky above New Zealand.

He said it was likely the rays of colours would be seen in the far south, near Invercargill, when the solar flares hit the earth around 6.30pm.

“Plus or minus seven hours depending on how fast the flares are travelling.”

Field said the auroras could be seen as north as Wellington, depending on the weather, but the “further south you are the better”.

Kunches said another set of active sunspots was ready to aim at Earth.

But for now, scientists were waiting to see what happened when the charged particles hit Earth at 6.4m kmh.

NASA solar physicist Alex Young added: ”It could give us a bit of a jolt. But he said this is far from a super solar storm.”

“The storm is coming after an earlier and weaker solar eruption happened Sunday,” Kunches said.

There was the potential for widespread problems. Solar storms have three ways they can disrupt technology on Earth: with magnetic, radio and radiation emissions. This was an unusual situation when all three types of solar storm disruptions were likely to be strong, Kunches said.

“That means a whole host of things could follow,” he said.

The magnetic part of the storm has the potential to trip electrical power grids. Kunches said power companies around the Earth had been alerted for possible outages. The timing and speed of the storm determined whether it would knock off power grids, he said.

In 1989, a strong solar storm knocked out the grid in Quebec, leaving 6 million people without power.

Solar storms could also make global positioning systems less accurate, which was mostly a problem for precision drilling and other technologies, Kunches said. There also could be GPS outages.

The storm could cause communication problems and added radiation around the north and south poles, which would probably force airlines to reroute flights. Kunches said some had already done so.

Satellites could be affected by the storm, too. NASA spokesman Rob Navias said the space agency wasn’t taking any extra precautions to protect astronauts on the International Space Station from added radiation from the solar storm.

HISTORY OF SECRET EXPERIMENTATION

1931 Dr. Cornelius Rhoads, under the auspices of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Investigations, infects human subjects with cancer cells. He later goes on to establish the U.S. Army Biological Warfare facilities in Maryland, Utah, and Panama, and is named to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. While there, he begins a series of radiation exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patients.
1932 The Tuskegee Syphilis Study begins. 200 black men diagnosed with syphilis are never told of their illness, are denied treatment, and instead are used as human guinea pigs in order to follow the progression and symptoms of the disease. They all subsequently die from syphilis, their families never told that they could have been treated.
1935 The Pellagra Incident. After millions of individuals die from Pellagra over a span of two decades, the U.S. Public Health Service finally acts to stem the disease. The director of the agency admits it had known for at least 20 years that Pellagra is caused by a niacin deficiency but failed to act since most of the deaths occured within poverty-striken black populations.
1940 Four hundred prisoners in Chicago are infected with Malaria in order to study the effects of new and experimental drugs to combat the disease. Nazi doctors later on trial at Nuremberg cite this American study to defend their own actions during the Holocaust.
1942 Chemical Warfare Services begins mustard gas experiments on approximately 4,000 servicemen. The experiments continue until 1945 and made use of Seventh Day Adventists who chose to become human guinea pigs rather than serve on active duty.
1943 In response to Japan’s full-scale germ warfare program, the U.S. begins research on biological weapons at Fort Detrick, MD.
1944 U.S. Navy uses human subjects to test gas masks and clothing. Individuals were locked in a gas chamber and exposed to mustard gas and lewisite.
1945 Project Paperclip is initiated. The U.S. State Department, Army intelligence, and the CIA recruit Nazi scientists and offer them immunity and secret identities in exchange for work on top secret government projects in the United States.
1945 “Program F” is implemented by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). This is the most extensive U.S. study of the health effects of fluoride, which was the key chemical component in atomic bomb production. One of the most toxic chemicals known to man, fluoride, it is found, causes marked adverse effects to the central nervous system but much of the information is squelched in the name of national security because of fear that lawsuits would undermine full-scale production of atomic bombs.
1946 Patients in VA hospitals are used as guinea pigs for medical experiments. In order to                   allay suspicions, the order is given to change the word “experiments”to “investigations” or “observations” whenever reporting a medical study performed in one of the nation’s veteran’s hospitals.
1947 Colonel E.E. Kirkpatrick of the U.S. Atomic Energy Comission issues a secret document (Document 07075001, January 8, 1947) stating that the agency will begin administering intravenous doses of radioactive substances to human subjects.
1947 The CIA begins its study of LSD as a potential weapon for use by American intelligence. Human subjects (both civilian and military) are used with and without their knowledge.
1950 Department of Defense begins plans to detonate nuclear weapons in desert areas and                   monitor downwind residents for medical problems and mortality rates.
1950 In an experiment to determine how susceptible an American city would be to biological attack, the U.S. Navy sprays a cloud of bacteria from ships over San Franciso. Monitoring devices are situated throughout the city in order to test the extent of infection. Many residents become ill with pneumonia-like symptoms.
1951 Department of Defense begins open air tests using disease-producing bacteria and viruses. Tests last through 1969 and there is concern that people in the surrounding areas have been exposed.
1953 U.S. military releases clouds of zinc cadmium sulfide gas over Winnipeg, St. Louis,                   Minneapolis, Fort Wayne, the Monocacy River Valley in Maryland, and Leesburg, Virginia. Their intent is to determine how efficiently they could disperse chemical agents.
1953 Joint Army-Navy-CIA experiments are conducted in which tens of thousands of people in New York and San Francisco are exposed to the airborne germs Serratia marcescens and Bacillus glogigii.
1953 CIA initiates Project MKULTRA. This is an eleven year research program designed to produce and test drugs and biological agents that would be used for mind control and behavior modification. Six of the subprojects involved testing the agents on unwitting human beings.
1955 The CIA, in an experiment to test its ability to infect human populations with biological                   agents, releases a bacteria withdrawn from the Army’s biological warfare arsenal over Tampa Bay, Fl.
1955 Army Chemical Corps continues LSD research, studying its potential use as a chemical incapacitating agent. More than 1,000 Americans participate in the tests, which continue until 1958.
1956 U.S. military releases mosquitoes infected with Yellow Fever over Savannah, Ga and Avon Park, Fl. Following each test, Army agents posing as public health officials test victims for effects.
1958 LSD is tested on 95 volunteers at the Army’s Chemical Warfare Laboratories for its effect on intelligence.
1960 The Army Assistant Chief-of-Staff for Intelligence (ACSI) authorizes field testing of LSD in Europe and the Far East. Testing of the european population is code named Project THIRD CHANCE; testing of the Asian population is code named Project DERBY HAT.
1965 CIA and Department of Defense begin Project MKSEARCH, a program to develop a capability to manipulate human behavior through the use of mind-altering drugs.
1965 Prisoners at the Holmesburg State Prison in Philadelphia are subjected to dioxin, the highly toxic chemical component of Agent Orange used in Viet Nam. The men are later studied for development of cancer, which indicates that Agent Orange had been a suspected carcinogen all along.                  
1966 CIA initiates Project MKOFTEN, a program to test the toxicological effects of certain                   drugs on humans and animals.
1966 U.S. Army dispenses Bacillus subtilis variant niger throughout the New York City subway system. More than a million civilians are exposed when army scientists drop lightbulbs filled with the bacteria onto ventilation grates.
1967 CIA and Department of Defense implement Project MKNAOMI, successor to MKULTRA and designed to maintain, stockpile and test biological and chemical weapons.
1968 CIA experiments with the possibility of poisoning drinking water by injecting chemicals into the water supply of the FDA in Washington, D.C.
1969 Dr. Robert MacMahan of the Department of Defense requests from congress $10 million to develop, within 5 to 10 years, a synthetic biological agent to which no natural immunity exists.
1970 Funding for the synthetic biological agent is obtained under H.R. 15090. The project, under the supervision of the CIA, is carried out by the Special Operations Division at Fort Detrick, the army’s top secret biological weapons facility. Speculation is raised that molecular biology techniques are used to produce AIDS-like retroviruses.
1970 United States intensifies its development of “ethnic weapons” (Military Review, Nov., 1970), designed to selectively target and eliminate specific ethnic groups who are susceptible due to genetic differences and variations in DNA.
1975 The virus section of Fort Detrick’s Center for Biological Warfare Research is renamed the Fredrick Cancer Research Facilities and placed under the supervision of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) . It is here that a special virus cancer program is initiated by the U.S. Navy, purportedly to develop cancer-causing viruses. It is also here that retrovirologists isolate a virus to which no immunity exists. It is later named HTLV (Human T-cell Leukemia Virus).
1977 Senate hearings on Health and Scientific Research confirm that 239 populated areas had been contaminated with biological agents between 1949 and 1969. Some of the areas included San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Key West, Panama City, Minneapolis, and St. Louis.
1978 Experimental Hepatitis B vaccine trials, conducted by the CDC, begin in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Ads for research subjects specifically ask for promiscuous homosexual men.
1981 First cases of AIDS are confirmed in homosexual men in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, triggering speculation that AIDS may have been introduced via the Hepatitis B vaccine.
1985 According to the journal Science (227:173-177), HTLV and VISNA, a fatal sheep virus, are very similar, indicating a close taxonomic and evolutionary relationship.
1986 According to the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (83:4007-4011), HIV and VISNA are highly similar and share all structural elements, except for a small segment which is nearly identical to HTLV. This leads to speculation that HTLV and VISNA may have been linked to produce a new retrovirus to which no natural immunity exists.
1986 A report to Congress reveals that the U.S. Government’s current generation of biological agents includes: modified viruses, naturally occurring toxins, and agents that are altered through genetic engineering to change immunological character and prevent treatment by all existing vaccines.
1987 Department of Defense admits that, despite a treaty banning research and development of biological agents, it continues to operate research facilities at 127 facilities and universities around the nation.
1990 More than 1500 six-month old black and hispanic babies in Los Angeles are given an “experimental” measles vaccine that had never been licensed for use in the United States. CDC later admits that parents were never informed that the vaccine being injected to their children was experimental.                  
1994 With a technique called “gene tracking,” Dr. Garth Nicolson at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX discovers that many returning Desert Storm veterans are infected with an altered strain of Mycoplasma incognitus, a microbe commonly used in the production of biological weapons. Incorporated into its molecular structure is 40 percent of the HIV protein coat, indicating that it had been man-made.
1994 Senator John D. Rockefeller issues a report revealing that for at least 50 years the Department of Defense has used hundreds of thousands of military personnel in human experiments and for intentional exposure to dangerous substances. Materials included mustard and nerve gas, ionizing radiation, psychochemicals, hallucinogens, and drugs used during the Gulf War.
1995 U.S. Government admits that it had offered Japanese war criminals and scientists who had performed human medical experiments salaries and immunity from prosecution in exchange for data on biological warfare research.
1995 Dr. Garth Nicolson, uncovers evidence that the biological agents used during the Gulf War had been manufactured in Houston, TX and Boca Raton, Fl and tested on prisoners in the Texas Department of Corrections.
1996 Department of Defense admits that Desert Storm soldiers were exposed to chemical agents.
1997 Eighty-eight members of Congress sign a letter demanding an investigation into bioweapons use & Gulf War Syndrome.

What are these elite scum bags up to ??

Okay so there is going to be a meeting on March the 22’nd at westpac center about coping and managing systems in natural disasters etc but then there is a guest speaker from IBM US.

http://www.smartnet.co.nz/events/other/seismicsandthecity/overview.htm

Dr Colin Harrison IBM Smarter Cities, USA

He was one of the orriginal guys at CERN, EMI Central Research Laboratories in London he led the development of the world’s first clinically useful MRI system, and has enjoyed a career leading from micromagnetics to medical imaging, parallel computing, mobile networking, intelligent agents, telecommunications services, knowledge management, and now Smarter Cities. In October 2004 he was elected to the IBM Academy of Technology.

In the course of his career Dr Harrison has lead many technical innovations, including the first use of a distributed real-time control system at CERN, the clinical application of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in medicine (1978), mobile computing (1990), wireless data services (1992), network services (1994), and so forth. Among his many failed innovations are magnetic bubble memories (1980), creating a medical imaging business for IBM (1984), inventing the Worldwide Web two years too late (1992), and creating a Voice over IP business

British medical journal admits antipsychotic drugs kill far more people than terrorism

Based on the facts, U.S. Transportation Security Administration pat-downs and naked body scans belong at drug company factories, doctors’ offices, and drug stores, rather than at American airports. A new report published in the British Medical Journal has found that dangerous antipsychotic drugs are responsible for killing at least 1,800 dementia patients a year, which means that more people are killed by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved dementia drugs every two years than died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
For their study, researchers from Harvard Medical School tracked more than 75,000 dementia patients living in nursing homes that were being prescribed antipsychotic drugs like haloperidol (Haldol) and quetiapine (Seroquel) for their conditions. Antipsychotic drugs are not typically administered to dementia patients, which means this is an “atypical” or “off-label” use of these drugs, despite the fact than an increasing number of doctors and nursing home personnel are prescribing them to dementia patients.
In the end, it was confirmed by the team that the use of antipsychotics by dementia patients is responsible for a surge in drug-related deaths, presumably as a result of negative side effects both internally to the body, and externally in the form of altered behavior. The findings also confirmed previous ones that identified an uptick in at least 1,800 additional deaths a year as a result of dementia patients taking antipsychotic drugs.
“For a minority of people with dementia, antipsychotics should be used, but then only for up to 12 weeks, and under the correct circumstances,” said Dr. Anne Corbett, research manager at the Alzheimer’s Society, commenting on the research. “For the majority (of patients), they do far more harm than good.”
These 1,800 deaths, of course, are just the additional deaths caused by antipsychotic drugs when they are used for off-label purposes in those with dementia, which means there are tens of thousands — and perhaps even hundreds of thousands — of deaths every year in other patients taking antipsychotics for other purposes. This means that far more people die every single year than have ever died from so-called terrorist attacks.
According to the 2003 report Death by Medicine, which was authored by Drs. Gary Null, Carolyn Dean, Martin Feldman, Debora Rasio, and Dorothy Smith, more than 783,000 people in the U.S. die every year as a result of conventional medicine, which is more than 261 times more than the number who died on 9/11 (http://www.naturalnews.com/009278.html).
You can read the entire Death by Medicine report here: http://www.webdc.com/pdfs/deathbymedicine.pdf
So with all this in mind, why is the U.S. government’s primary concern about terrorism these days when far more people die as a result of government-sanctioned medicine every single year?

Aspartame withdrawal and side effects explained

If you have been drinking diet soda and chewing gum, chances are you have been enjoying aspartame in generous quantities. Aspartame is a popular sugar substitute that can be found in diet soda drinks, chewing gum, fruit spreads and sugar-free products to name a few. It is also known by the brand names, Sweet One, NutraSweet and Spoonful. Despite its popularity in the market, what many do not know is that aspartame accounts for 75 percent of side effect complaints received by the Adverse Reaction Monitoring System (ARMS) of the US Food and Drug Administration.

Can aspartame be addictive?

Yes, according to Dr. Betty Martini, popular anti-aspartame advocate. She explains that it is an “addictive, exitoneurotic, carcinogenic, genetically engineered drug and adjuvant that damages the mitochondria.” Moreover, Dr. Janet Hall, another famous advocate against aspartame, shares on her website that all artificial sweeteners create an artificial need for more sweetness. She goes on to add that forced sweetness, being a class of altered food, is a trap that cause people to become addicted to sweeter tasting food with no nutritional value.
Recent studies have shown that aspartame is addictive because it affects the absorption of dopamine in the brain.

Side Effects of Aspartame

Aspartame is made up of 3 components: phenylalanine, aspartic acid and methanol. Understanding the effects of aspartame will require us to look into its genetic make up.
In its website, manufacturers of aspartame continue to assure the public that low-calorie sweeteners are effective for weight reduction, weight maintenance, reduction of tooth decay, management of diabetes and reduction of risks associated with obesity. They claim that consumers of low-calorie, sugar-free beverages were able to incorporate these products into a healthy lifestyle not because they need to manage their weight (since a majority of people use low-calorie foods and beverages for reasons other than dieting) but because use of low-calorie products is part of a healthy lifestyle.
Despite the benefits cited in the aspartame website, independent studies have been shown that aspartame is not as safe as it appears to be. In a recent study conducted by researchers from the University Of Miami Miller School Of Medicine and at Columbia University Medical Center, it was discovered that those who drank diet soft drinks on a daily basis were more likely to contract vascular diseases compared to those who took none.
Supporters of aspartame insist that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are found in many foods. What they have conveniently left out, however, is that the said neurotoxins are harmless only when consumed with other nutrients like fats, amino acids (protein) and carbohydrates. On their own, they are absorbed by the nervous system in large concentrations causing the stimulation of brain neurons and cell death. Symptoms of the conditions include headaches, confusion, balance problems and seizures.
Methanol, on the other hand, is also a highly toxic substance. It is released in the small intestine gradually with the assistance of chymotrypsin and then broken down into formaldehyde: a chemical used for embalming which is a carcinogen that causes birth defects, retinal damage and DNA replication.
Again, supporters of aspartame insist that methanol is safe because it is found in vegetables and fruit juices. What they neglect to mention, however, is that methanol in vegetables and fruit juices is bound with pectin and the body does not possess the digestive enzyme to break down pectin and release ethanol into the body. Furthermore, ethanol, the methanol toxicity antidote, is found in natural sources of methanol, inhibiting the metabolism of methanol and giving the body sufficient time, through the lungs and kidneys, to clear it. Methanol found in aspartame is easily absorbed because it is in a free form.
Aspartic acid, methanol and phenylalanine and their breakdown in the body are cumulative because of their fast absorption and slow excretion.
In 1984, studies conducted revealed that the toxicity of NutraSweet (aspartame) to living organisms. The State of Arizona arrived at findings which showed that aspartame in carbonated drinks can break down into free methanol in temperatures of 99 degrees Fahrenheit. On May 13, 1998, the University of Barcelonaalso arrived at results revealing that aspartame was transformed into formaldehyde in the bodies of living creatures, and on later examination formaldehyde had spread through the vital parts of the body.

“Artificial sweetener disease”

The US Food and Drug Administration has received reports of 92 medical health problems resulting from aspartame, ranging from abdominal pain to migraines, dizziness and hives. Aspartame poisoning is often misdiagnosed because its symptoms mock other syndromes. It changes the ratio of amino acids in the blood, lowering or blocking levels of hormones like dopamine and tyrosine that are necessary for bodily function.
Since aspartame cannot be detected through lab tests and x-rays, these diseases and disorders may actually be a toxic load. Below are some specific health conditions that are associated with aspartame you might want to recall next time you open a can of diet soda:
1. CancerThe Ramazzine Foundation, a European Cancer Research Center, conducted a study on aspartame which revealed that aspartame increases the risk of cancers (lymphoma, leukemia and breast cancers). Despite the National Cancer Institute‘s stand that no such connection was ever firmly established between aspartame and cancer, it might well be worth thinking that what is harmful to rats is also harmful to humans. Moreover, the dismissive stand of regulatory bodies concerning aspartame is merely based on the absence of data that can conclusively support such a connection and NOT on a finding that establishes that aspartame does not cause cancer.
2. Mental disorders and degeneration of brain cells – Excessive ingestion of artificial sweeteners, according to researchers from the University of Praetoria and the University of Limpopo, may lead to various mental disorders and the degeneration of the brain. Publishing in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers noted that aspartame appeared to cause excessive signals, damage and even death to nerve cells. Since aspartame disrupts the functioning of the cell’s energy source, it will lead to a cascade of effects on the whole system.
3. Headaches – As early as 1994, a study conducted published on PubMed.gov showed that ingestion of aspartame was associated with headaches. Subjects in the study revealed that they experienced headaches 33 percent of the time when taking aspartame compared to 24 percent when on placebo treatment. Moreover, Dr. Robert Milne and Blake More in their book “Headaches” report that headaches are the most reported side effect given by those who take products containing aspartame. They add that in a University of Parkinson‘s at Florida study, it was found out that the incidences of migraines doubled for a majority of test subjects who took aspartame. Their headaches lasted longer and were marked by significant signs of shakiness and diminished vision.
4. Weight gain and increased blood sugar – Aspartame is not a healthy alternative for diabetics or those wanting to lose weight. Contrary to popular belief, a recent study has shown that regular consumption of diet soft drinks is strongly connected with abdominal obesity and that aspartame can increase blood sugar. Researchers from the University of Texas Health Center San Antonio reported in a study that, as a group, 70 percent of those who drank diet soft drinks gained weight as opposed to those who did not. Moreover, those who drank 2 or more diet sodas regularly experienced an increase in their waist circumference by 500 percent more than those who did not drink them.
In another related study that analyzed a possible relationship between intake of aspartame and fasting glucose and insulin levels among 40 diabetes-prone mice, one of the researchers in the study, Dr. Gabriel Fernandes, revealed that heavy aspartame exposure might potentially contribute to the associations noticed between soda consumption and the risk of diabetes in humans.
The above health conditions are just some of the 92 reported medical health problems reportedly associated with aspartame. Despite the stand of aspartame manufacturers that their product has been declared safe for human consumption, it is still strange that there are still reports from sectors who do not stand to benefit from such declarations that aspartame is not safe. Prudence would dictate that avoiding a product may be better in the long run than to discover firsthand that all that was said about it was true. Why? Because you happen to be living proof of it.

How to protect yourself

To keep yourself safe from contracting “artificial sweetener syndrome,” it is suggested that you stop taking all products containing this chemical.
If you have brought or stocked up on products containing aspartame, you can arrange to return the products so you can get a refund of your money. If you feel that you may need professional help in getting over the disease, please see your doctor as soon as possible. Take a proactive approach to being healthy.
Finally, for those taking aspartame simply because they want to observe a healthy diet, replace your aspartame habit with real sugar. Although it may have more calories, it offers a far better solution than being poisoned. Those who want to manage their weight problems are advised to seek a healthier course of action like eating more whole foods, vegetables and fruits and getting regular exercise. True and sustainable weight loss cannot be achieved through a quick fix without a change in lifestyle. Set a personal example to be healthy and watch yourself regain your life.

Regards, Chris —–Original Message—– From: orgon@activist.com [mailto:orgon@activist.com] Posted At: Wednesday, 29 February 2012 9:57 a.m. Posted To: News Online Editors Conversation: Facebook Subject: Facebook Hi Chris,   Thanks for your promt reply, I apologize for coming across as threatening I was just higly concerned by the way the foxconn suicides comment was totally blown off.   I would also like to apologize for my seemingly off topic comments, I however do feel that the news has become nothing more than infotainment and it always seems to be a one sided biased look of the world and I can’t help but feel that there has never been any communication from 3 News with me to even let me know that I have been noted for things in the past or even replyed to.   I give you my word that I will never again slander staff on the page and try and keep things reletive to the content I will be posting on and I do sincearly apologize from the bottom of my heart human to human to anyone whom my comments upset personally I just get upset when I see people comiting suicide for their slave wages and then there are all these people who’s eyes are shut to these things and do not realize that new technology is slowly enslaving them and to see the comments brushed off as being from a different department and no credit payed to the fact that we are using these people as slaves to have these items whilst lives are being lost etc. And my seemingly off topic comments are often on news bytes about sport and fassion/entertainment because I see it as nothing more than a distraction from the things that matter whilst they promote animal torture (fur) selling sex to children (rhianna, lady gaga etc) glorify death and suffering (chch earthquake footage of dead boddies and people crying and suffering) when stories about things like monsanto in NZ under their pseudo corp seminis seeds in not mentioned, non of the horrific side effects of fracking have really been mentioned either, or the secret meeting held with 7 US congresmen was not reported only minimal mention when these are the things that matter to us as people, our food and our water should be the most important things to us as a nation yet we are heavily underway with fracking which is shown to poison the water suply and even cause the water to be flamable and opening the oceans to oil drilling opening our so called GE free nation to big agra corps like monsanto and many others. Not only that but opening up our beautiful national parks to mining and selling assets etc I just get very upset to see these awfull things happening all over the world and here while the so called news is pumping out promotional news bytes of new technology which watches your every move that has caused people that make it to commit suicide, stories about Lady Gaga and Rhianna and the abuse and show them selling sex to kids but never show how manipulitive and brainwashing they are, stories that keep parents and children frightened to go outside because they feel unsafe because your always hearing about rapes, child molestation, murder, robbery and fighting/stabbing etc but the chances of that happening are so so so so low. The things that really matter should be food and water yet we are well on the way to fracking, oil drilling off the coast of NZ, opening mines in our beautiful national reserves to mining, and our beautiful GE clean green country is selling GMO Monsanto seeds to our farmers under their guise “Seminis seeds” not only that but basicly all food bought nowdays is GMO or contains multiple forms of MSG which go under so many names so that they can legally add more than what the MSG regulations allow for. this chemical and all chemicals in its class (artifical sweetner, aspartame, nutrasweet etc) excite your neurons giving you a false pleasure and causing an addiction but then the neurons begin to bleed and fry themselves they are known as excitotoxins for good reason and recent studdies have shown that they lead to brain damage http://www.truthinlabeling.org/Proof_BrainLesions_CNS.html   Forms of MSG http://www.truthinlabeling.org/hiddensources.html   This ingredient is in everything and the effects are well known yet no one is doing a thing about it and the media just keep spinning their sporting stories and telling us which celeb is now dating whom and who is wearing what and what new technology is soon to come out to monitor,track and record every single thing we do.   I urge you to look into this for yourself and do your own research in fact I would feel so honored to know that you had gone and done so
Just like the logo on the press with the unicorn in shackles symbolising the repression and control over all the magic we have inside ourselves it shows total domination of our freedoms, the five pointed rose I wonder what that symolizes?? and the thistle hmmmm it seems to be best known in Europe as the symbol of pain and suffering interesting that.
Quoted from Michael (The Press)   “Our Latin motto means “nothing is useful that is not honourable”.   Honestum means honour, not honesty.”   Honourable to whom ??
Again Chris I thank you greatly for your quick reply and I hope we can talk more in the future   Have a lovely day my brother
One love
Hi Chris,
I am just wondering why you have still not replyed to me yet, I can’t help but feel like I am yet again being ignored and for nothing more than sharing my concerns and compassion for all of man kind rather than mainstream infotainment is that really such a bad thing ?? or are you payed to not listen to facts or publish anything of the likes ?? maybe I need to run my own story and do a mass mail drop over the whole country showing all communications I have had with you and the blatent disregard of my views and being totally ignored.
I understand that you were feeling like I had threatened you by saying I was going to take matters into my own hands all I was meaning was that I would grab my megaphone and come down and see you all at the offices. I never implyed or suggested any type of crime or violence against anyone and I can assure you that there is nothing to fear other than a loud speaker spreading the real truth that media works ignore
the ten days I mentioned was to cover the legalities of things as once I have said that this will happen you are informed and have the chance to fix the situation before the ten days are up otherwise I will see you with my megaphone breaking no laws and only expressing myself through freedom of expression and free speech as stipulated in the bill of rights and in the magna carta I am under common law because I am a free man on the land and my voice will be heard regardless of this conversation and the three news page (although if the mainstream media did cover these kinds of stories I would be very happy but your masters would never allow it now would they) and just remember that a claim of right can go a long way……
And please do not threaten me with the police again unless I actually break a law or actually do something wrong because all I have done is speak facts and sure I didnt need to go as far as to say that the media are scum but that is not breaking a law though is it ? and I never said anything other than that I would take matters in my hands. I didn’t say I was going to get violent or do anything stupid I was only meaning that because you are not listening to me and 3 News ignore everything I ever say and never respond or reply to me so I have to do things for myself with my own hands do I not ?? that is all that was meant by my statements you have nothing to fear other than truth and vigilance
Peace love and light my brother, have a most beautiful day
Kind and warm regards
So can you not even take 2 mins out of your day to reply to me ?? this is becoming a joke and it is showing the nation that my facts are true and the fact you can not even reply to me shows that the news is nothing more than a propaganda machine. I suggest you take a moment to reply to me before I publish every email and post publicly.
Warm regards

Chris this is becoming a joke now isn’t it, like I did say earlier I have given you ten days to fix this before I come down to your offices with my megaphone. All I ever wanted was conversation with the media not all out censorship and to be totally ignored. I guess I will be seeing you Monday where you and everyone one else within a km will hear my every word unless you would like to contact me back and re allow me back on the 3 news page before monday morning. This is not a threat as I am not breaking any laws and have not done so thus far nor plan to so by all means contact the police like you already threatened me you would, I have done nothing wrong I have not threatened you personally all I said was that seeing as how I am being ignored by the media I will take this into my own hands, no mention of fists just hands and what I do with my hands is my call although nothing more than holding a mega phone and maybe pointing but that is no crime is it ??

You have till monday morning to fix this as stated earlier you have already been served with your ten days notice in writing and I have documented everything ready to publish

3 Large C-17 planes out at Chch airport

I have a feeling something big is going down , there are three large C-17 craft out at the Christchurch airport, One flew over head just before dusk and another two landed out there today

Notice some of the illuminati and masonic hand gestures in the image ??

John Key’s asset sales have been shunned by almost everyone so I find it odd that he would still want it to go ahead, not only does it mean a good portion of the profits of these corporations will no be going offshore but it will also grow the poverty gap.

Pics from around the cordon and other parts of the city from after the quakes

Also the fact that there have been loads of recent deals signed with the US and the IMF (international monetary fund) and we are in debted to them. could it be that when the NZ govt refused to do the asset sales that NZ was threatened with earthquake technology?? not only is there a HAARP style array out at birdlings flats but there were rainbow clouds and scallar activity recorded the day/days before the september 7.1 and february 6.3 quakes and mass whale strandings in the area which are all signs of radio wave interferance. Also interesting to note that on the day of the February quake there were 6 diplomats from the US that left only hours before and also signed big deals with FEMA after september. And also the fact that the city was on total lock down, military cordon with tanks and armed soldiers. Does that sound right to you ?? people locked out of their homes while foreign search and rescue crew break and enter their homes and enter every room of your house, then if you get the red sticker you are not allowed back in and your property becomes that of CERA and the demo teams who claim everything you own and it all becomes their property and meanwhile the billions of dollars funded to the disaster have all gone into the central city and all the corperations even all that money raised in the telethon was not even handed to the people. The people are the ones that had to look after each other and it was so heartwarming to see people from out of town sending in truckloads of stuff for those left homeless and the Rangiora express with their privatly hired helicopter flying loads of hot food to the area’s ;eft without water/power or toilets. Never count on the government doing a thing for you its people, good honest kind hearted people which sadly are rare and hard to find but they are out there and I love them all and we are all in this together so its time to build us a better world for ourselves free of the govornment tyrrany

It’s also very interesting to note that John Key also said twice (within 5 mins) that the earthquake was a man made disaster and some theories even go as far as to say that the plan is to rid the south island of NZ’s and the US and Europe elite plan on moving here to wait out the financial collapse so whilst their nations are left to kill each other on the streets for food and survival etc

Any thoughts on this ??

Audio from Mr Keys conference call where he states twice that the earthquake was man made

This video highlights the way in which HAARP works to induce an earthquake

The same clouds where also seen before China’s devistating quake
