The Health & Longevity Newsletter features information about nutrition and health-related topics that you won't get in the mainstream media. I'm always on the lookout for information that not only is interesting, but will be of the most benefit to you, the reader.
In This Issue
Swine Flu Update.
The current swine flu pandemic has raised numerous questions about the entire flu vaccine program. This month, I'm featuring a video of Gary Null, noted health advocate, testifying to the NY State Assembly about the hidden truths behind flu vaccines and the pharmaceutical industry. You don't want to miss this!
The Wisdom of Cancer Screenings.
Regular readers of this newsletter may remember that I ran a story on the wisdom of cancer screenings just a few months ago. This issue has recently come to the forefront due to a report by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force that added further doubt to the official recommendations that we have been going by for years.
If cancer screenings are part of your healthcare routine, you'll want to get all the facts, from both sides, before you continue to expose yourself to yearly medical procedures that may be unnecessary, and potentially dangerous.
Health Myth of the Month: Is Orange Juice a Healthy Way to Start Your Day?
Orange juice has been promoted as a healthy part of the classic breakfast for about as long as anyone can remember. The iconic image used by the orange juice industry is one of a whole orange with a straw inserted into it, creating the illusion that drinking commercial orange juice is just like sucking the juice out of an orange, right off the tree.
Unfortunately, it's a far cry from reality. Read the whole story about the entire juice-making process and you may never buy commercial orange juice again.
Swine Flu Vaccines Raise Doubts About Entire Flu Vaccine Program
This month's update on the swine flu vaccine controversy features Gary Null and his recent testimony before the NY State Assembly.
For over three decades, Gary Null has been one of the foremost advocates of alternative medicine and natural healing. An award-winning journalist and New York Times best-selling author, Dr. Null has written over 70 books on nutrition, self-empowerment and public health issues. You can read his full bio at: Speakers on Healthcare
Gary Null has spent the last seven years examining every vaccine study ever published. His testimony contains facts and statistics about the pharmaceutical industry that will astound you. To call Gary passionate about his area of expertise would be the understatement of the year. You'll see what I mean after you watch this video!
Among the highlights of Gary's revelations:
• No double-blind placebo study (the only recognized scientific method considered valid) has ever done on the safety and effectiveness of vaccines.
• All the vaccine studies that have been done were funded and executed by the industry that sell the vaccines.
• 50% of the approval committee members are on the industry payroll.
• Side effects from vaccines often take months, if not years, to develop, while vaccine studies only last for 7 days after the inoculation.
• The pharmaceutical industry has had to settle a total of over 132,000 lawsuits — over $1 trillion dollars in fines in all. Things the industry has been found guilty of include price fixing, fraudulent science, and criminal acts that caused the deaths of thousands of people — in other circles, that's called murder.
Don't miss part three, where Gary reveals what it actually costs the industry to manufacture the top-selling prescription drugs like Prozac, Celebrex and Zanax — drugs that sell for hundreds of dollars a bottle.
Do Regular Cancer Screenings Really Prevent Cancer? (update)
U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Study Casts Doubt on Cancer Screenings. Regular readers of this newsletter may remember that I ran a story on the wisdom of cancer screenings in my September issue. This issue has recently come to the forefront due to a report by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force that recommended that annual breast mammograms now recommended for all women over the age of 40 may do more harm than good, and should be drastically reduced.
The task force dropped the recommendation that women get routine annual mammograms starting at age 40. Instead, it said women ages 50 to 74 could be screened every other year, while those in their 40s should make an individual decision after talking with their doctors. They based this recommendation on the evidence that shows that annual mammograms have been ineffective at reducing cancer fatalities, and that they may have serious health consequences that make them more a a risk than a benefit.
The statement was met with violent criticism from the professional associations and government agencies, leaving women everywhere confused about whom to trust. To help you sort out the conflicting opinions, I've updated my article and posted it to my website, where you can access it by clicking on this link:
A Glass of Orange Juice is a Healthy Way to Start Your Day
Orange juice has been promoted as a healthy part of the classic American breakfast for about as long as anyone can remember. The iconic image used by the orange juice industry is one of a whole orange with a straw inserted into it, creating the illusion that drinking commercial orange juice is just like sucking the juice out of an orange right off the tree.
Unfortunately, that's a far cry from reality. When you take a look at all of the facts and discover the whole story about the juice-making process, you may never buy commercial orange juice again.
Among the questions addressed in my article:
• What's the difference between drinking orange juice and eating a whole orange?
• Are "not from concentrate" orange juice products really better than the others?
• Why do commercial orange juices often taste "better" than fresh-squeezed?
• How can you tell if a juice product is really fresh?
