Let’s hear from someone who was actually diagnosed with Covid-19 and hear what this person has to say about this fearsome virus.
Question everything and trust your instincts above the industry funded mainstream media perpetuating mass hysteria for the purposes of manipulating and controlling the people. There is nothing to fear but fear itself.
Please do not let mass hysteria scare you into getting the untested unsafe Covid-19 vaccine which will inevitably do more harm than good. The vaccine may CAUSE Covid-19 as it is shed from the body after injection, and if the recipient lives through the vaccine, is sure to get chronic illness that will last for the rest of their lives as vaccine adjuvants are loaded with neurotoxins and foreign cells.
Autoimmune/Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants (A.S.I.A.)/Shoenfeld’s syndrome: descriptive analysis of 300 patients from the international A.S.I.A. Syndrome Registry:
Do you personally know any healthy person from New York to California who has been legitimately diagnosed with or has passed away from Covid-19? Shouldn’t that raise serious red flags as to the “global pandemic” and the mass hysteria it’s inducing?
We hear a lot of propaganda and disinformation in the mainstream; therefore, it’s important to trust our own instincts above what we are “told”.
A pandemic simulation was held October 18, 2019 sponsored by Gates Foundation. Coincidence or prequel?
Let’s all practice critical thinking and turn off industry funded mainstream “news” for a positive change.
I am PRO-HEALTH, a protector of children, and defender of people’s inalienable right to health freedom, and freedom of speech.
The previous video is a news clip from 2008 revealing strong financial ties between vaccine promoters and vaccine manufacturers. That was eleven years ago, so why aren’t people giving this their full attention and questioning vaccine safety for their children’s sake?
Board Certified Pediatrician Lawrence Palevsky MD, Graduate of NYU School of Medicine, dared to question vaccine safety for the sake of his patients. In his research, he found that diseases declined prior to vaccines, and, that vaccines indeed pose health risks. This alone is reason enough to question vaccine safety today.
If vaccine adjuvants and preservatives weren’t a catalyst to other debilitating illnesses for which more profit is made, and its toxic ingredients weren’t harming children worldwide, then it wouldn’t be a global CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY, but it IS.
Now, they are using their influence to try and shut down any and all vaccine awareness posts on facebook. and other social media forums, violating your freedom of speech and further endangering our children. Read the letter sent to Mark Zuckerberg written by Florida Rep Bill Posey to counteract the blatant disinformation and censorship tactics of Adam Schiff.
Deepest gratitude to Mr. Posey, who is resolutely PRO-vaccine but understands the far reaching conflicts of interest and risks associated with immunizations after receiving documents by a CDC Whistleblower that the CDC COVERED UP DATA LINKING THE MMR VACCINE TO AUTISM that he addressed at a Congressional hearing on CSPAN (below), and knows the importance of FREE SPEECH IN AMERICA.

Thank you, Mr. Posey. It is of the utmost importance to investigate the pharmaceutical industry’s duplicitous dealings such as fraud, deceit, and coercion, specifically vaccine manufacturers and their deceptive practices to determine the true risks involved, due to their conflicts of interest, lack of unbiased safety testing, and brazen attempts to deceive the public and mandate vaccines under the guise of “public health”. Previous and even more recent measles outbreaks were later found to have been contracted and spread by VACCINATED individuals, yet, we are inundated in the mainstream with “measles scares”, to PUSH VACCINES AND FUEL NATIONWIDE MANDATES.
Outbreak of Measles Among Persons With Prior Evidence of Immunity, New York City, 2011
A measles outbreak occurred in New York City. All cases had prior evidence of measles immunity. Symptoms were consistent with measles. Laboratory results indicated secondary immune responses. This report documents measles transmission from an individual with verified secondary vaccine failure. SOURCE: https://academic.oup.com/cid/article/58/9/1205/2895266
Measles Outbreak in a Highly Vaccinated Population — Israel, July–August 2017
Both patients had self-reported history of receipt of 2 doses of MMR vaccine. The cases in patients A and B were laboratory-confirmed serologically and by urine polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing on August 7 and August 9, respectively (Table). A third patient with mild symptoms (patient C) was reported by NMRL staff members to IDFPHB on August 7 after urine PCR confirmation. Patient C, a soldier aged 19 years, was the partner of patient A and reported having received 2 doses of measles vaccine.
Dr. Suzanne Humphries, M.D. Testimony West Virginia Senate Education Committee
Dr. Suzanne Humphries, M.D. gave sworn testimony at the West Virginia Senate Education Committee on Saturday, March 18, 2017. Dr. Humphries is a Nephrologist (Kidney Specialist) Board Certified Physician who began researching vaccines in depth after observing her patients falling ill immediately after the 2009 H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine. She subsequently authored, “Dissolving Illusions – Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History” to help educate people on the truth about vaccines.
If vaccines actually did work as they claim instead of being used to scare the public into rushing to get vaccinated, then vaccinated people wouldn’t contract and spread the measles and there wouldn’t be a “debate”; however, evidence proves this is NOT the case, despite all the mainstream fearmongering for the sole purpose of “selling vaccines” in the media today, especially since the MMR vaccine often causes measles. My daughter got measles from her childhood MMR, full body head to toe rash, high fever, the entire measles experience, but I still trusted vaccines… until 2009 (see end for more). Toxicologist Ashley Everly put together a comprehensive report, “Measles Facts to Counter the Fear“.
The ACIP, a division of the CDC, is heavily influenced by funding, therefore, cannot claim to be unbiased. Let’s look at a snippet of their “process” for approving a new vaccine”. The HepisavB vaccine was approved in Feb 2018 despite the fact that its new adjuvant causes heart problems. They will “wait and see” how it affects the public, known as “post marketing surveillance” and “post marketing data”, MARKETING being the keyword indicating vaccines are for PROFIT not for “health”. Thimerosal is still used in many vaccines, oh, but don’t worry, they call all “be combined as long as they’re, um, given in different limbs, um”. Are they kidding? (click red hyperlinks for more information)
“Each of the 12 members of the CDC’s ACIP Committee has a significant influence on the health of nearly every member of the American population. Because they are responsible for adding to and/or altering the national vaccine schedule, it is of critical importance that they remain objective and unbiased before determining whether a new vaccination is appropriate for use, particularly in the bodies of vulnerable young children. Unfortunately, a significant number of ACIP committee members receive direct financial returns when more vaccinations are added to the current schedule. Many own vaccination related patent(s) and/or stock shares of the pharmaceutical companies responsible for supplying new vaccines to the public. Others receive research grant money, funding for their academic departments, or payments for the oversight of vaccine safety trials.” SOURCE: https://www.lawfirms.com/resources/environment/environment-health/cdc-members-own-more-50-patents-connected-vaccinations
ABORTED HUMAN FETAL CELLS IN VACCINES
Are you PRO-life? If you’re also PRO-vaccine, then you should know that aborted human fetal cells are contained in many vaccines. Did you sign onto the pro-vaccine bandwagon to sanction abortion? Then please rethink promoting vaccines if you do not know what they contain or the risks to public health that they pose. Is defending unethical science that allows an industry to profit at the expense of life, worth it?
Characteristics and viral propagation properties of a new human diploid cell line, walvax-2, and its suitability as a candidate cell substrate for vaccine production:
Human diploid cell strains (HDCSs), possessing identical chromosome sets known to be free of all known adventitious agents, are of great use in developing human vaccines. However it is extremely difficult to obtain qualified HDCSs that can satisfy the requirements for the mass production of vaccines. We have developed a new HDCS, Walvax-2, which we derived from the lung tissue of a 3-month-old fetus.
“The tissues from the freshly aborted fetuses were immediately sent to the laboratory for the preparation of the cells.”
Peter Jarzyna, PhD presents “Insertional Mutagenesis & Autoimmunity Induced Disease Caused by Human Fetal & Retroviral Residual Toxins in Vaccines” at the annual AAPLOG and ACOP conference in Houston, Texas on February 21st, 2016.”
As outlined in the above video, there are SERIOUS RISKS TO PUBLIC HEALTH associated with vaccines that its makers do not want you to be aware of, but to blindly accept vaccines and march your children in like cattle under the guise of “public health”, which is making our children sicker and sicker.
Evolution of multiple sclerosis in France since the beginning of hepatitis B vaccination
“Since the implementation of the mass vaccination campaign against hepatitis B in France, the appearance of multiple sclerosis, sometimes occurring in the aftermath of vaccinations, led to the publication of epidemiological international studies. This was also justified by the sharp increase in the annual incidence of multiple sclerosis reported to the French health insurance in the mid-1990s…
The positive and statistically significant correlation between HB vaccine exposure and reported MS incidence is consistently observed in different places, circumstances, and times (criterion 2)…
Most publications where there is no link between HB vaccination and the onset of MS [2–5] received grants from pharmaceutical industry…”
ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS STRONGLY OPPOSES FEDERAL VACCINE MANDATES
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons sent a letter to Congress strongly opposing federal mandates on February 26, 2019:
To: Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, House Energy and Commerce Committee
Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions
Re: Statement federal vaccine mandates
Feb. 26, 2019
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) strongly opposes federal interference in medical decisions, including mandated vaccines. After being fully informed of the risks and benefits of a medical procedure, patients have the right to reject or accept that procedure. The regulation of medical practice is a state function, not a federal one. Governmental preemption of patients’ or parents’ decisions about accepting drugs or other medical interventions is a serious intrusion into individual liberty, autonomy, and parental decisions about child-rearing.
A public health threat is the rationale for the policy on mandatory vaccines. But how much of a threat is required to justify forcing people to accept government-imposed risks? Regulators may intervene to protect the public against a one-in-one million risk of a threat such as cancer from an involuntary exposure to a toxin, or-one-in 100,000 risk from a voluntary (e.g. occupational) exposure. What is the risk of death, cancer, or crippling complication from a vaccine? There are no rigorous safety studies of sufficient power to rule out a much higher risk of complications, even one in 10,000, for vaccines. Such studies would require an adequate number of subjects, a long duration (years, not days), an unvaccinated control group (“placebo” must be truly inactive such as saline, not the adjuvant or everything-but-the-intended-antigen), and consideration of all adverse health events (including neurodevelopment disorders).
Vaccines are necessarily risky, as recognized by the U.S. Supreme Court and by Congress. The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid some $4 billion in damages, and high hurdles must be surmounted to collect compensation. The damage may be so devastating that most people would prefer restored function to a multimillion-dollar damage award.
The smallpox vaccine is so dangerous that you can’t get it now, despite the weaponization of smallpox. Rabies vaccine is given only after a suspected exposure or to high-risk persons such as veterinarians. The whole-cell pertussis vaccine was withdrawn from the U.S. market, a decade later than from the Japanese market, because of reports of severe permanent brain damage. The acellular vaccine that replaced it is evidently safer, though somewhat less effective.
The risk: benefit ratio varies with the frequency and severity of disease, vaccine safety, and individual patient factors. These must be evaluated by patient and physician, not imposed by a government agency.
Measles is the much-publicized threat used to push for mandates, and is probably the worst threat among the vaccine-preventable illnesses because it is so highly contagious. There are occasional outbreaks, generally starting with an infected individual coming from somewhere outside the U.S. The majority, but by no means all the people who catch the measles have not been vaccinated. Almost all make a full recovery, with robust, life-long immunity. The last measles death in the U.S. occurred in 2015, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Are potential measles complications including death in persons who cannot be vaccinated due to immune deficiency a justification for revoking the rights of all Americans and establishing a precedent for still greater restrictions on our right to give—or withhold—consent to medical interventions? Clearly not.
Many serious complications have followed MMR vaccination, and are listed in the manufacturers’ package insert, though a causal relationship may not have been proved. According to a 2012 report by the Cochrane Collaboration, “The design and reporting of safety outcomes in MMR vaccine studies, both pre- and post-marketing, are largely inadequate” (cited by the National Vaccine Information Center).
Mandate advocates often assert a need for a 95% immunization rate to achieve herd immunity. However, Mary Holland and Chase Zachary of NYU School of Law argue, in the Oregon Law Review, that because complete herd immunity and measles eradication are unachievable, the better goal is for herd effect and disease control. The best outcome would result, they argue, from informed consent, more open communication, and market-based approaches.
Even disregarding adverse vaccine effects, the results of near-universal vaccination have not been completely positive. Measles, when it does occur, is four to five times worse than in pre-vaccination times, according to Lancet Infectious Diseases, because of the changed age distribution: more adults, whose vaccine-based immunity waned, and more infants, who no longer receive passive immunity from their naturally immune mother to protect them during their most vulnerable period.
Measles is a vexing problem, and more complete, forced vaccination will likely not solve it. Better public health measures—earlier detection, contact tracing, and isolation; a more effective, safer vaccine; or an effective treatment are all needed. Meanwhile, those who choose not to vaccinate now might do so in an outbreak, or they can be isolated. Immunosuppressed patients might choose isolation in any event because vaccinated people can also possibly transmit measles even if not sick themselves.
Issues that Congress must consider:
Manufacturers are virtually immune from product liability, so the incentive to develop safer products is much diminished. Manufacturers may even refuse to make available a product believed to be safer, such as monovalent measles vaccine in preference to MMR (measles-mumps-rubella). Consumer refusal is the only incentive to do better.
There are enormous conflicts of interest involving lucrative relationships with vaccine purveyors.
Research into possible vaccine adverse effects is being quashed, as is dissent by professionals.
There are many theoretical mechanisms for adverse effects from vaccines, especially in children with developing brains and immune systems. Note the devastating effects of Zika or rubella virus on developing humans, even though adults may have mild or asymptomatic infections. Many vaccines contain live viruses intended to cause a mild infection. Children’s brains are developing rapidly—any interference with the complex developmental symphony could be ruinous.
Vaccines are neither 100% safe nor 100% effective. Nor are they the only available means to control the spread of disease.
AAPS believes that liberty rights are unalienable. Patients and parents have the right to refuse vaccination, although potentially contagious persons can be restricted in their movements (e.g. as with Ebola), as needed to protect others against a clear and present danger. Unvaccinated persons with no exposure to a disease and no evidence of a disease are not a clear or present danger.
AAPS represents thousands of physicians in all specialties nationwide. It was founded in 1943 to protect private medicine and the patient-physician relationship.

LABORATORY ANIMAL ABUSE
Are you a vegan or do you buy cruelty-free products yet do not question what vaccines are made from and how animals are used? That’s like being pro-vaccine and pro-life despite aborted human fetal cells in vaccines; you cannot be both without being a hypocrite. This is meant to be eye opening, not offensive. SOURCE: https://www.learntherisk.org/news/human-animal-cells/
Animals are horrifically abused for the purpose of creating vaccines, drugs, and other purposes, all over the world. Below is another example:
Monkeys, viruses, and vaccines
By 1960, scientists and vaccine manufacturers knew that monkey kidneys were sewers of simian viruses. Such contamination often spoiled cultures, including those of an NIH researcher named Bernice Eddy, who worked on vaccine safety. In1959, fresh from co-reporting that the mouse polyoma virus could cause cancer in other animals, Eddy tested the rhesus monkey kidney substrate used to make polio vaccine. She injected 154 newborn hamsters with extracts of the cell cultures:109 developed tumours. Next, she ground up three of the tumours and injected the residue into other hamsters.The animals receiving injections from two of the three tumours developed cancer…
“Like many science centers, the Salk regularly performs research on non-human primates, which are used as a proxy for humans. Such research is particularly common when it comes to exploring the brain, and has been used in the development of therapeutic drugs.
I burst into tears and felt like I was going to collapse watching those videos, imagine what goes on in medical research labs that isn’t publicized; but, people will still trust and defend the pharmaceutical industry above our children’s health, much less, the innocent animals captured or bred for “research” that are horrifically tortured then discarded like trash. TO THE PRO-VACCINE ZEALOTS, FIND OUT HOW VACCINES AND PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS ARE MADE AND STOP DOING PHARMA’S BIDDING, THEY HAVE ENOUGH SOULLESS SHILLS ALREADY.
THE POLIO VACCINE EXPOSED 98 MILLION PEOPLE TO CANCER IN THE ’50s-’60’s
This is well documented, so then WHY aren’t we questioning vaccine safety, but, instead, playing into the divisive “debate” that has been intentionally provoked to suppress awareness of these serious safety issues? This is the same pharmaceutical industry that solely profits from disease, so WHY are we trusting them with our “health”? That’s absolute insanity.
How ignorant would we be to ‘not’ question vaccine safety with a history like this and the fact that it’s man-made substances subject to error by an industry exempt from liability with both internal and external financial conflicts of interest?

EXCERPT: “Side effects have always been reported but in the latest years it seems that they have increased in number and seriousness, particularly in children as the American Academy of pediatrics reports [1,2]. For instance, the diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTaP) vaccine was linked to cases of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) ; measles-mumps-rubella vaccine with autism [4,5]; multiple immunizations with immune disorders ; hepatitis B vaccines with multiple sclerosis, etc.”
A Case Series of Children with Apparent Mercury Toxic Encephalopathies Manifesting with Clinical Symptoms of Regressive Autistic Disorders
“Based upon differential diagnoses, 8 of 9 patients examined were exposed to significant mercury from Thimerosal-containing biologic/vaccine preparations during their fetal/infant developmental periods, and subsequently, between 12 and 24 mo of age, these previously normally developing children suffered mercury toxic encephalopathies that manifested with clinical symptoms consistent with regressive ASDs. Evidence for mercury intoxication should be considered in the differential diagnosis as contributing to some regressive ASDs“.
J Toxicol Environ Health A. 2011;74(14):903-16. doi: 10.1080/15287394.2011.573736.
A positive association found between autism prevalence and childhood vaccination uptake across the U.S. population.
A positive and statistically significant relationship was found: The higher the proportion of children receiving recommended vaccinations, the higher was the prevalence of AUT or SLI. A 1% increase in vaccination was associated with an additional 680 children having AUT or SLI. Neither parental behavior nor access to care affected the results, since vaccination proportions were not significantly related (statistically) to any other disability or to the number of pediatricians in a U.S. state. The results suggest that although mercury has been removed from many vaccines, other culprits may link vaccines to autism. Further study into the relationship between vaccines and autism is warranted.
VACCINE MANDATES SWEEP THE WORLD AS PHARMA’S FUNDING DOMINATES
Argentina’s New Vaccine Law is a Blueprint for American Real ID
Colombian law 1626 was introduced in 2013. Bureaucratic language approved by a handful of senators established that HPV vaccination was “free and mandatory.” What followed was widespread injuries to girls who received an HPV shot which was never safety tested against a saline placebo and includes a scientifically problematic and controversial aluminum adjuvant. The authorities and health officials in the country deemed that any and all serious side effects experienced after the HPV vaccine were part of mass hysteria collectively experienced by the teenage girls. A ‘blame the victim’ stance was also implemented by health authorities in Ireland, Denmark, Japan, and other countries whose HPV vaccine rollout triggered massive injuries to teenage girls. Communities, such as Carmen de Bolívar, were torn apart by the injuries as the girls were left to suffer by a callous and complacent Colombian medical community.
In mid-December of 2018 Argentina unanimously passed its vaccine law through both cambers of congress without debate, political discussion and seeing just one negative vote against it. Learning nothing from the ongoing Colombian HPV issues, the new Argentinian law forces their entire 20 vaccine schedule upon its population of both children and adults. Using nearly identical talking points as seen in Colombia, the Argentinian bill’s author Dr. Pablo Yedlin boasted on Twitter, “They [vaccines] are free, they are your right and your obligation”
The law is perhaps the most overarching example seen to date of how invasive a government can become by forcing a medical intervention [vaccines] with questionable safety profiles onto its people. The recently approved law indicates “certification of compliance with the National Vaccination Calendar must be required” including for passports, driver’s licenses and National Identity Documents (DNI)…
(Booster as in they ALL had been previously vaccinated with the MMR, including those aboard that contracted the virus and were suppose to have been immune, further revealing that vaccines do not protect us as we are continually told by pharmaceutical manufacturer’s marketing machine spending 30 billion dollars on advertising to dominate mainstream media and make lifelong customers. The pharmaceutical industry that profits solely from disease has nothing to gain from health).

Immunity, Infectious Disease, and Vaccination – By Researcher Raymond Obomsawin, PhD
“Why do vaccines pose serious physical, mental, and behavioral dangers in humans? Get a historical overview of human attempts to create immunity artificially via vaccination and explore the issues surrounding these artificial attempts to protect human health August 2011.” Presentation published on Aug 21, 2013:
Despite ongoing attempts to discredit Producer and Journalist Del Bigtree, none of the astroturfers that are hired to attack his character could refute even one thing he stated in his lecture questioning vaccine safety and pointing out that America’s children are the sickest in the world despite having the best doctors and medical care available. Social media shills (a.k.a. “trolls”) do no research; they’re hired as “trolls” to regurgitate marketing propaganda from a script disregarding of any references provided, as they are paid to insult, deceive, distract, and divide.
Veteran investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson expains how astroturf and fake grassroots movements funded by political, corporate, pharmaceutical, or other special interests very effectively manipulate and distort media messages, as is prevalent in social media today.
So, if all of the above isn’t enough to convince people to question vaccine safety, then let me make this personal. My experience with vaccines, and subsequent need for research it caused, is that the swine flu vaccine (H1N1 vaccine) my daughter and I had in 2009 was made by Medimmune a.k.a. Astrazeneca (also associated with Merck), a pharmaceutical corporation specializing in AUTO-IMMUNE DISEASE. The H1N1 vaccine caused auto-immune disease in my daughter and I, that we are suffering from TO THIS DAY, conditions we did NOT previously have and that prior medicals records prove. It is also exempt from liability.
We become sicker as the years roll by, especially my beautiful daughter who was once a vibrant and energetic girl, barely has the energy to leave her room now, and whose health is deteriorating with serious Lupus symptoms before my very eyes, and breaks my heart, despite organic food & living a healthy lifestyle as best we can. She is underweight, sick, and there isn’t anything I can do about it, except post information to help prevent other parents from making the same mistake.
PLEASE do not let anyone convince you that vaccines are for public health, they are NOT. They are a clever way for vaccine manufacturers to profit at the expense of your health making trillions more money off their medications that treat the illnesses their vaccines cause. They are now attempting to mandate vaccines stripping you of your parental right to choose, and forcing vaccines regardless of religious or medical exemptions, which is a Nuremberg Code violation as well.
Despite the glaring conflicts of interest, both financial and otherwise, people still want to “believe” vaccines are for “public health” since that’s what they say to market their products at the expense of YOUR children’s health. I once believed that “vaccines protect our health” and was proven wrong.
Please don’t learn the hard way like I did and make the most regrettable mistake of your child’s life. I wish I had been an “anti-vaxxer” then my daughter wouldn’t be suffering right now.
To the shills and the stubborn, go get the Swine Flu (H1N1) Vaccine, Tuberculosis (BCG) Vaccine, HepB Vaccine, MMR, HPV Vaccine along with any other combination vaccines, then report back after a few months on how you’re doing, until then, stfu since you’ve sold out humanity for a measly paycheck or pure ignorance, with complete disrespect towards the parents of vaccine injured children, this includes ALL pro-vaccine profiteers (from doctors to lawmakers to mainstream media), and social media shills who are hired to attack awareness posts, and the unwitting pro-vaccine zealots whom they’ve duped, one day, you will ALL be held accountable for your role as accomplices to these crimes against humanity.
Winter hibernation will be over before we know it and with Spring’s bloom comes widespread use of weed killer on lawns across the globe with effects that are insidiously deadly for people and pets. Often NO notice is given or even warning signs (like the one above) are posted by maintenance staff on public or private multi-family properties notifying people that these toxic products will be, or have been, sprayed, jeopardizing the health of kids and petsthatunknowingly play on toxic lawns!
Frustratingly, we may not be able to end use of toxic products, but we can help protect our kids and pets by openly questioning lawn care workers about what products are being used and making them aware of the serious health hazards associated with unabated use of weed killer and inform them that there are safer alternatives. Also make sure that at the very least, they should post a notice of intent to spray along with caution signs (like the one at the top) on treated areas. If they are not following this basic protocol (sadly, most do not), remind them that they can be held liable since using those products improperly, in other words not following label directions such as keeping people and pets off treated areas for 48 hours, is unlawful as well as morally irresponsible.
See excerpt below about the devastating effects of weed killer for pets (click orange link for full article):
Your pet’s chances of acquiring both bladder cancer and lymphoma dramatically increase if your pet is exposed to certain lawn and garden products. The lawn and garden care chemical most notorious for being toxic is called 2, 4-D, and is almost surely in your weed killer product among others. Aside from 2, 4-D, you’ll want to avoid products with Carbary, Pronamide, Chlorothalonil, or Maneb, common pesticide components which seem to correlate closely with increased cancer risk.
Let’s put this hazard in perspective: lawns treated a handful of times per year with 2, 4-D (a common practice for many homeowners) can make frolicking dogs twice as likely to contract lymphoma. In 2001, more than half the cases reported to American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals poison control center were the result of pesticide exposure. Scottish Terriers in particular, have the risk of bladder cancer increased by four to seven fold in the presence of lawn and garden treatments with heribicidal chemicals, an unacceptably dangerous high percentage. It’s crucial to watch your own exposure to chemicals when considering lawn and garden care, but be especially mindful when protecting your oblivious pets.
Unfortunately, the companies behind these products are not obliged to detail all their specific ingredients; only the active ingredients. This is unsatisfactory for the concerned pet parent and health conscious person, because even the inactive ingredients possess carcinogenic chemicals. A leading veterinary researcher, Lawrence T. Glickman, VMD, Dr. PH, explains that, “These other ingredients are thought to be inert and, therefore, are not tested or even listed on the product label… But four billion pounds of these other untested chemicals reach our lawns and gardens every year, and we theorize they are triggering cancer in [dogs]…”
The products many people cast upon their grass, flowers and weeds are thus clearly harmful to humans and even more hazardous to our pets, considering how often your animals run through the lawn, face in the grass, and its paws inevitably stained with chemicals. Pets then lick their paws, and directly ingest the chemicals. Even when your pet just sets foot in the grass, the chemicals that rub off on its fur can be absorbed easily into its skin. And we know how irresistible it is for dogs to stop, drop and roll in the lawn. It happens every time!
Use all-natural lawn and garden care products. For instance, rather than using a standard name-brand product which might likely contain harmful toxins, try deploying things like corn gluten meal, a natural weed killer which doubles as a fertilizer. For pest control, try diatomaceous earth and boric acid. Taking these steps alleviates concern, and increasing confidence when your dog runs around outside. Until you find these alternative products, be sure to give your dog a quick wash after being on the grass. Scrub his paws and give his coat a solid clean with a towel.
The most reliable method; eliminate herbicides, chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and all other unnatural treatments from your life altogether. Not only will this build the firewall between your dog and despairing fates (like cancer), but will keep you healthy as well … win-win!
NOTE: If your dog has been exposed to any of these harmful chemical products, be sure to contact the Animal Poison Control Center (ASPCA) at 888-426-4435. Also, let your veterinarian know, as incidents involving pesticides can and should be documented.
So, why help perpetuate toxic warfare chemical corporations profiting from poisoning life on this planet when there are safe, natural, cost effective alternatives? It’s not just 2,4D based products or glyphosate, its ALL toxic chemical based weed killers and pesticides that pose a threat, regardless of what brand or how they are marketed as “safe” or “EPA approved” (which we have learned means nothing more than a propagandized pay-off by the profiting corporation). Below is an eloquently worded letter effectively shattering the myth of “safety”:
Why Alternatives To Herbicides Should Be Used, On Earth Day
and Everyday A Response To A Weed ManagerBy:Jay Feldman - Executive Director, Beyond Pesticides
It is often the case that those who use pesticides use them with
the belief that they are safe because they are registered by the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the state in which these
toxic chemicals are used. However, when public officials who
coordinate weed management programs profess this safety myth about
pesticides they strike a blow to public trust and understanding of
the real risks, known and unknown, of chemicals that happen to be
in wide use and result in widespread human and environmental
The Boulder County, Colorado Weed Manager committed this violation
of public trust when she wrote in the summer issue of the Boulder
County Parks and Open Space publication Images, "Why I Sprayed
Herbicides on Earth Day," and seriously misled the public on
critical questions of public and environmental safety. Here Cindy
Owsley, in defense of pesticide use, is misinformed, and, as a
In fact, investigation after investigation, which should be known
to a public official of Ms. Owsley stature, say quite the opposite.
Of the 18 most commonly used herbicides (herbicides are weed killers,
a large and growing part of the family of pesticides), seven are
cancer causing, six cause birth defects, six cause reproductive
effects, eight are neurotoxic, 9 damaging to the kidney and liver,
and 14 are irritants, according to EPA and National Institutes for
Health data. And that's just health effects. When considering
environmental effects, such as ability to contaminate groundwater
and toxicity to fish, bees and birds, the majority are culprits.
Even worse, we do not know what we should about the pesticides to
be taking the kind of cavalier attitude espoused by Ms. Owsley.
The U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) found in its 1990 report,
Lawn Care Pesticides: Risks Remain Uncertain While Prohibited Safety
Claims Continue, that the public is mislead on questions of
pesticide safety. While nine years have passed since this finding,
not much has changed. The majority of weed killers used by the
Boulder County Parks and Open Space Department have not been fully
tested in accordance with modern safety standards. Moreover, the
EPA has stated clearly that numerous tests have are not even
performed as part of the pesticide registration that should be --

on fetal development, sexual traits and cancer later in life)
and impacts on children generally. In addition, pesticides are not
currently tested in mixtures with other chemicals for their additive,
cumulative or synergistic effects.
The majority of pesticide formulations, whose uses are advocated
by Ms. Owsley, are comprised of so-called "inert" ingredients that
are often more toxic than the parent compound and not disclosed
on the product label. They have been protected as trade secret
information. Neither Ms. Owsley nor the public generally can fully
identify what solvents, mixing agents, or adjuvants are contained
in the products used.
In its report, GAO said, "The lawn care pesticides industry [which
uses the chemicals we are talking about here] is making claims
that its products are safe or nontoxic. GAO's review found nine
instances of safety claims, such as "completely safe for humans,"
made by manufacturers, distributors, and professional applicators.
EPA, using its standards for pesticide labels, considers that these
claims, when made by manufacturers and distributors, are false and
misleading." More recently, New York State last year reached a
settlement with Monsanto requiring the company to cease its
misleading advertising campaign. In that case, New York Attorney
General Dennis Vacco, called Monsanto's ad campaign "particularly
troubling," and forced the company to remove certain "health and
environmental claims, similar to Ms. Owsley. Monsanto claimed that
Roundup, which contains the active ingredient glyphosate, is
"safer than table salt," and that Roundup "can be used where
kids and pets play, and breaks down into natural material,"
despite the warning label which clearly states environmental hazards.
Ms. Owsley is making a value judgement, devoid of scientific fact,
when she so glibly advocates pesticide use. Her value is that it
is O.K. to spray poisons knowing that there are risks and incompleteinformation on the full range of hazards to people, including children, and the environment, now and in the future. In describing
the federal law, a former pesticide registration division director
at EPA said in an affidavit that an EPA pesticide registration
"does not constitute a finding of a pesticide's safety. To the
contrary, the fact of registration only means that EPA has found
the risks of use of a pesticide to be outweighed by the benefits
of the pesticide's use." With incomplete information, and like most
pest managers who ignore the fact that EPA has not evaluated the
benefits of pesticides in light of less toxic alternatives or
approaches for which we have full safety information, Ms. Owsley
is playing with our health and environmental safety.
Let's get the truth out and have an informed community debate
about the health of families, children and the environment, rather
than belittle the meaning, importance and legacy of Earth Day. Maybe
then, as a community and as pest managers, we would decide to adopt
the non-chemical option that has worked successfully time and time

Below are some tips for environmentally friendly organic weed killer that’s SAFE!
Mix well, transfer to sprayer and douse weeds. Repeat as needed.
Click orange link above for source.
Not only is homemade vinegar based weed killer safer for humans, pets and the planet, but it saves money too! It’s even more safe to substitute earth friendly biodegradable dish soap in place of brands like Dawn or Ajax.
Some recipes call for only vinegar and dish soap, others add salt (table or epsom) to be more effective. Pouring boiling hot water directly on weeds is also a safe and effective way to get rid of unwanted vegetation in your yard. Also, good old fashioned by hand weed pulling never fails, and working in the garden is therapeutic for those that have the time.
See video and article excerpt below to learn more about the serious health risks of RoundUp from research scientist Dr. Anthony Samsel who has extensively studied glyphosate. Click orange link for full article.
Dr. Samsel is a research scientist who is passionate about farming, gardening, and agriculture, making him particularly suitable for investigating glyphosate.
“I was with the ‘think tank,’ Arthur D. Little (ADL) in Cambridge, Massachusetts for many years working as a research scientist on many types of projects, from product development to environmental sciences to later switching to health sciences,” he says.
He’s also done contract work for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and as a hazardous materials expert, he’s worked for the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the United States Navy (USN), and the United States Coast Guard (USCG).
For example, Dr. Samsel was one of the authors of the Chemical Hazard Response Information System (CHRIS) manual for the US Coast Guard. He is also a valuable contributor to our article comments section (Vital Votes).
Besides his career in science, he also owned and operated several farms in New England, and it was this first-hand experience that led him to begin investigating the effects of glyphosate in the first place.
Monsanto Has Known for Nearly 35 Years That GMOs Promote Cancer
Dr. Samsel eventually asked the EPA for Monsanto’s trade secret documentation, as most of the approval process for glyphosate was based on studies Monsanto had done by outside contractors. That process began in the late 1970s and concluded around 1983 with the registration of the chemical. Since then, it’s gone through a couple of re-reviews. But Dr. Samsel wanted access to those documents to investigate what the EPA and Monsanto really knew about glyphosate from the very beginning.
“I asked EPA, as a research scientist, to be able to access those documents in my research. I was denied by the Environmental Protection Agency, initially,” he says. “It finally took Senator Shaheen’s office, here in New Hampshire, to move the EPA… They sent [the documents] to me on a disc. I had to sign for them. I was also told that I could not share them with foreign nationals under a penalty of law…
However, I’ve been going through 12 to 14 of these documents in the file. They represent thousands and thousands of pages of data on studies that were done on laboratory animals. What amazed me was that Monsanto knew in 1981 that glyphosate caused adenomas and carcinomas in the rats that they’ve studied…The highest incidence of tumorigenic growth occurred in the pituitary gland… the second highest levels were in the breasts of the female rats, in the mammary glands… Thirdly, the next highest tumorigenic growth was found in the testicles of male rats..”
In essence, Monsanto’s research of glyphosate showed similar findings as Dr. Gilles-Éric Séralini, whose damning lifetime GMO feeding study11 was wrongfully retracted12,13,14,15largely due to Monsanto’s influence. (Séralini’s paper was later re-published with open access in the Springer Group journal Environmental Sciences Europe.16)
Monsanto’s own research also supports the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) determination that glyphosate is a Class 2 A “probable human carcinogen.”17,18,19 –a determination Monsanto is now trying to get retracted. What’s more, the research shows that lower doses of glyphosate tend to have a greater effect than higher doses, and the doses at which damage was found to occur are comparable to the glyphosate levels found in wheat, sugar, corn and soy in the American diet.
Monsanto Never Published These Negative Findings
So how did Monsanto and Biodynamics—the company doing the research—hide these inconvenient facts? According to Dr. Samsel, they cancelled out the controls and the damning findings by using historical control data from unrelated studies. It’s also worth noting that these negative findings were never published in the peer-reviewed literature or submitted to the EPA or the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Cancer was clearly shown in their 26-month long feeding study, but the only studies Monsanto has published are studies done in less than three months, which hides the consequences of eating glyphosate and genetically engineered foods over the course of a lifetime.
“I’m looking at a Biodynamics report here as Project number 77-2062, ‘A Lifetime Feeding Study of Glyphosate in Rats,’ and every page of this document says, ‘Contains trade secret or otherwise confidential information of Monsanto Company.’ I have a letter here from Monsanto’s health and safety officer. He was the head guy at Monsanto at the time, back in 1981. In his letter, he asked the US EPA to seal the documents and to treat them as trade secret. I personally feel that this is a violation of the public review process…
Now that I’ve looked at Monsanto’s trade secret documents that the public doesn’t have access to, I’m in the process of writing the Environmental Protection Agency and I’m asking them to release those. They have no right to withhold that information from the public. Because what I’ve seen in those documents, it clearly shows that Monsanto knew in 1981 that glyphosate caused tumorigenic growth and carcinomas in multiple organs and tissues… At the rate we’re going, we’re going to kill billions of people,” Dr. Samsel says.
Removing Glyphosate Is Imperative to Protect Human Health and Future Generations
According to Dr. Samsel, we’re seeing the effects of glyphosate in human disease statistics now. His work with Dr. Stephanie Seneff and Dr. Nancy Swanson show that chronic disease rates are at an all-time high, including the specific tumors found in Monsanto’s 26-month feeding study, as well as the Séralini study and others—specifically pituitary, kidney, breast, testicular, thyroid tumors, and thymic hyperplasia.
“There was some work that was recently done where they looked at the CT scans of patients who had thyroid disease and also found that they had thymic hyperplasia. Well, guess what? In the rat study, they found high incidence of thymic hyperplasia as well as thyroid adenomas and carcinomas,” Dr. Samsel says. “If we don’t take this chemical out of the food supply, everybody will be affected. Everybody that is eating the Western diet. Everybody.
Now, for some diseases, the incidence rate among rats were slightly less than 50 percent—some were as high as 80 percent of the treated group. Obviously, we’re not seeing 80 percent of people in Western populations coming down with tumors. But we might eventually… Rats have an average lifespan of two to two and a half years, whereas the human lifespan is around 80. We’ve only been eating GMOs for about 15 years, but already disease statistics are clearly rising, and rising dramatically. Dr. Samsel believes there’s no doubt genetically engineered (GE) foods will shorten the human lifespan.
“In the 20th month, the rats had an 80 to 90 percent survival rate. But when we got to around 24 months, more than 50 percent of the rats had died. When we got to month 26, I think they only had 30 percent left.”
While correlation is not causation, were we to extrapolate, it would suggest that unless we stop eating glyphosate and genetically engineered foods, the vast majority of us will contract a life-threatening disease in our late senior years, and few will die from plain old age. Other non-life threatening diseases are also cropping up at a furious rate—neurological disorders such as autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and a wide variety of behavioral problems.
Good health starts in our own back yard. For everyone that lives in an apartment complex, or has school aged children or pets that play outside on those lawns and at schools & parks, always ask lawn care workers what they are spraying on your lawn and share this information far & wide… together we can create a healthier world for all!
World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer announced findings that glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp line of pesticides, is “probably carcinogenic to humans.” The research, published in The Lancet Oncology, relies on studies conducted on the chemical over the last few decades.
“The answer is, if you are utilizing your unique strengths and abilities to raise awareness in your community, family, whether by social media connections or in person, and if you are living by example the best you can within your means, not competing with anyone except yourself to continually learn and improve, if you are unafraid to speak out and take action for a better world and do what’s right, even in the face of adversity, then look no further than the mirror to see what a true leader looks like. We are ALL leaders and if we can put our differences and egos aside to unite, then standing side by side TOGETHER we CAN change the world!” ~Rebel Siren

Do we “need” a leader, or should we BE a leader?
Many of those aware about issues that are adversely affecting our world, still think they need some “leader” to make a difference, when in fact, putting our faith in one person to get something done (for example, depending on the president for “hope and change”), is essentially giving away our individual power that collectively is the only thing that truly can and will make a difference. We are indoctrinated by the system from birth and every aspect of this existence, and must break free from it to think for ourselves. Disinformation is strong in the mainstream to prevent public outcry, meaning that only our voices together in unison can truly effect change.
We must each accept personal responsibility, changing our lifestyles to live by example (avoiding purchasing corporate products, make conscious choices about what we eat, buy, use, choosing natural health over harmful medications, eliminate our dependency on big oil, etc.), and not continue to place our lives and the care thereof, in the hands of corporations & medical-pharmaceutical industries and its lobbyists that DO NOT have our best interest in mind, yet “lead us” by dictating our lifestyles, putting their profits at the expense of our health and environment, to our peril.
The same goes for electing “leaders” (from politicians to activists) that serve themselves above all else, discounting other people’s feelings and input, who are unwilling to put aside differences and stand together for the greater good, only perpetuating division. Think about what equality means and how nothing in this world is anything close to it with all the world’s divisions, labels, racism, sexism, patriotism (implying people in other countries are inferior), capitalism (promoting greed, stinginess, wealth/resource disparity), discrimination on every level imaginable, “you can’t play in my sandbox, you’re the wrong (fill in the blank)”, etc., ALL that the global controlling powers benefit from, NOT HUMANITY.
We can only truly unify when people realize this and stand together, not “behind” someone else. THAT makes each of us leaders if we dare to stand strong on our own, and together for change, not giving ALL of your power away to “one single person”, instead, being a leader and standing side by side unified on common ground as the strongest team imaginable! United we stand…
It was an honor and a privilege to have been included as one of the six panel speakers on TLB-TV and Conscious Consumer Network, Wednesday September 30, 2015 hosted by Roger Landry of the American Freedom & Unity Project (and The Liberty Beacon), as well as being the first person appointed to the board of directors at its inception, (heartfelt gratitude to Roger for that and for ALL he does)…
“The second biggest factor in our failure to unify our voices is our leadership, or those who head or lead the hundreds of thousands of groups, pages, websites or organizations. This the Alpha Dog Syndrome, or those who resist unity because it will dilute their power or influence. This is not a guess, it is a FACT! “You cant play in my sandbox, go play in your own”. Look to see how many of the like minded forums or organization that exist today are locked arm in arm in coalitions meant to facilitate strength, the answer VERY FEW… WHY?” – Roger Landry
Our goal is to share, educate, inform, UNIFY – Meet the panelists (video screenshot):

Let’s hear exactly who our real enemies are from a veteran who was on the front lines in Iraq and has the courage to speak out against these wars of imperialism. Below is 4 minutes of Michael Prysner’s heartfelt, moving speech:
This amazing speech (below) from the vintage movie The Great Dictator made by Charlie Chaplin, far ahead of its time and in only a few minutes encompasses what a TRUE leader is:
FINAL WORDS – to the divisive ones out there, whether conscious of your actions or unwittingly going in the wrong direction…
What a true leader is NOT… someone that puts others down to make themselves feel superior… someone that insists others stand behind them, not beside them… someone that strategically manipulates others to go in only one direction and openly attacks (and elicits their followers to attack) everyone on social media with differing opinions… someone that doesn’t accept or appreciate others’ efforts, while publicly claiming “gratitude” with empty words for “appearance”… someone that feels entitled to claim “ownership” viewing information and others’ contributions on his/her website(s) as his/her “property”, who enforces “ownership” by aggressively going after anyone that shares something without his/her “permission”… someone that only directs traffic to one single website, dishonoring everyone else’s efforts & contributions that doesn’t fit into “their ideology”, and who only facebook “likes” their own page(s), rather than show support to anyone else, while “claiming to appreciate others”… someone that places more value on material objects than people, giving a gift yet refusing compensation for it, solely for control… someone that is charismatic (“sincere”), calculating, plays the “martyr”, yet ends up feeling more like being used by controlled opposition than having been in league with a true ally.
If people spent more time being supportive to others rather than constantly tearing down and disrespecting others, we might make progress towards standing together and co-creating a better world, can we all agree on that?…
If anyone is offended by this, it only means they fit that description and are part of OUR problem. This is OUR world and we must put aside our differences, step away from our egos, find common ground and UNITE, in order to truly affect change.
Unity does not mean to stick with those that step on, abuse and belittle you, it means to be available and ready to put aside differences and stand together when the time comes, with only positiveness, not judgement and criticism. Do not feel guilt for letting go of the disrespectful manipulative ones that disturb your peace of mind, for doing so rids negativity, frees you, and allows you to rise beyond and forgive…
Forgiveness does not mean to go back to old patterns and let history repeat itself, it means to find peace in your heart, rise above anger, let go grudges, and stay steadfast on your own path of higher consciousness towards TRUTH~
The fact that Big Oil has been funding the climate denial machine since day one is a fact that can no longer be ignored. The “debate” itself is an intentional ploy to cloud reality, skew our perception and keep us distracted in a heated and futile argument while our health and planet is being destroyed right in front of us.
BP Oil has been performing their own geoengineering (CDR – carbon dioxide removal) for years, and that alone is a strong indicator that the disinformation we are being fed in the mainstream that anthropogenic global warming is a “hoax”, is indeed just another way for the corporate cabal that puts profit above our health and planetary sustainability, to continue polluting our atmosphere at the expense of LIFE and the future.
What if we refuse to fall for such blatant disinformation tactics, ditch the “debate” altogether, unite and stick to creating a better world by working together to end all corporate activity that’s slowly poisoning us and destroying our planet? Would that not be better than falling for Big Oil’s divisive disinformation strategy?
Consider that Big Oil’s funding of the denial think tank calling climate change a “hoax” and/or “natural phenomenon” is not only a way to confuse us and shift responsibility to keep on polluting for profit, but it’s also the equivalent of “Monsanto saves the world”, and “vaccines save lives”, don’t we know better than that by now?
The “hoax” is the divisive debate itself, with the political manipulations of exploiting the truth of the issue for bogus carbon taxes, adding insult to injury.
It is a fact that the fossil fuel industry has been funding climate skepticism and obfuscating the truth in order to continue exploiting finite resources and polluting for profit putting their bottom line above our health while jeopardizing the future sustainability of this planet, funding “denial” to distract and divide as our planet burns before our very eyes.
As we sift through the haze of disinformation, it is clear that the “hoax” is ‘the debate itself’, and the politics & carbon tax nonsense associated with it, which is just another way for disaster capitalists to profit from man made destruction of our planet while evading any and all responsibility.
If we do not accept responsibility for what we (the human species) have done to this planet, but instead, continue to ‘argue’ while it goes down in flames, who wins?
Isn’t it time we put an end to the argument, put aside our differences of “opinion” and unite for the collective good before it’s too late?
“Gulf Oil Spill” – Ocean Portal Team, Smithsonian Museum of Natural History (click photo)
We decided to change our name to “Beyond Petroleum” because it isn’t just land and sea that we destroy with our unsustainable oil drilling, exploitation, and depletion of finite natural resources, we also do our best to destroy the sky, climate, and ozone layer, damage people’s health, and wipe out wildlife. That OUGHT to be BP’s so called “green” slogan… “Green” as in ill, not earth friendly.
How much disinformation are we routinely being fed in the mainstream? PR (public relations) and marketing companies downplay disinformation by referring to it as a “spin”, or an “image”, but in reality, it’s a lie. In other words, an intentional tactic of deceit designed to be a gross propagandized manipulation to influence public opinion for the sole purpose of furthering the agenda and profit margin of corporate…
Even for those of us not yet born when it started and too young to remember much about the Vietnam war during the ’70s that are just now learning the full extent of it, judging by the shape our world is in at the present time, the following is indeed a correct statement.
the fish in our seas, lakes, and rivers, are so full of mercury, it’s only recommended that we eat them once per week.
We have now come face to face with our own extinction.
I hate to say, “we told you so”, but the “dirty fuckin’ hippies” were RIGHT.
We’ve elected sociopath after sociopath for the last thirty years at every level of government…
many of them, slaves to corporate parasites that gorge themselves at the public trough, while the most vulnerable people in our society, the sick, the young, and the elderly, go wanting.
Billions of dollars of profits are being snitched up at the expense and suffering of our neighbors by the jackals that comprise our pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies…
both of which pipe their diagnostic wisdom and fake concern right into our homes via TV and radio commercials.
These legal drug dealers now sell their wares with impunity, and the insurance gamblers perform a slick game of “three card monte” right in our living rooms…
most of these drugs have a list of caveats that would make even the most dishonest used car salesman blush…
and the insurance hustlers change the rules of the game just when it’s time to pay up, profiting from the suffering and pain of others, profiting from human frailty…
universal healthcare, it’s too expensive we’re told. Gasbag talking heads on TV and radio have been complicit in this deception while being handsomely compensated for their assistance…
I’ll say it again, the “dirty fuckin’ hippies”… were RIGHT.
Big box discount stores descend upon small towns of American like alien ships filled with cheap products bought at low prices from countries that pay their workers slave wages…
plutocrats love this business model, mom & pop shops can’t compete with prices set by these huge corporate parasites and to no one’s surprise, plenty of small businesses in these tiny hamlets fail, leaving towns filled with empty storefronts…
and even in some cases, forcing these same small business operators to go to work for the very people that ruined their livelihoods…
small towns of America are subsequently decimated by this invasion, often helpless in stopping it.
Wall Street has cannibalized itself. Still hungry, feeling the pangs of their greed, they’ve now come to the government for their daily meal and still, without a hint of irony, a spokesman for this ravenous tribe, mounts a soapbox and has the temerity to rail against the evils of socialism… turns out, the socialism is for them, and the capitalism, is for us.
Abbie Hoffman once baited these banksters by throwing cash onto the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, to no one’s astonishment, they demonstrated their insatiable greed. The gluttons couldn’t help themselves, they stopped trading, got on their knees, and swept up the free loot.
The city of Niagara Falls began using the land as a landfill for chemical waste disposal and later the U.S. Army began burying waste from chemical warfare experiments. The HookerChemical and Plastics Corporation acquired the use of the site for private use in 1947 and buried 21,000 tons of toxic waste there over the next five years. After the site was filled, Hooker sold the Love Canal for one dollar to the Niagara Falls School Board in 1953, and the land was approved for residential use.
“Thirty-five years afterLove Canal became a symbol of the dangers of toxic waste in residential neighborhoods, the legal and medical issues there are still playing out.” (as will happen with Riverview)…
Did the EPA learn NOTHING from The Love Canal tragedy? Did they “forget”? Or, are they just sellouts of humanity that don’t care as long as it doesn’t affect their families, while being paid offto turn a blind eye until the point where it can no longer be ignored with a subsequent bigger payoff in the form of a monetary “fine”, a mere slap on the wrist to the repeat offender while ignoring their repetitive careless contamination? These are questions that should be PUBLICLY ASKED of the EPA regarding their complicity in allowing land developers, (consisting of attorneys who know how to skirt the law), to have built a residential community on a similar toxic waste site in Riverview, Florida, ignoring the deadly consequences (until it becomes profitable not to).
To understand the ongoing battle in Riverview, it is important to fully comprehend the tragedy at the Love Canal. This heartfelt and thorough assessment ByEckardt C. Beck, Administrator of EPA Region 2, 1977-1979, was found on the EPA’s own website. Yet, to this day, the Love Canal has subsequently been swept under the rug again, as history repeats itself in Riverview, Florida.
Quite simply, Love Canal is one of the most appalling environmental tragedies in American history.
But that’s not the most disturbing fact.
What is worse is that it cannot be regarded as an isolated event. It could happen again–anywhere in this country–unless we move expeditiously to prevent it.
It is a cruel irony that Love Canal was originally meant to be a dream community. That vision belonged to the man for whom the three-block tract of land on the eastern edge of Niagara Falls, New York, was named–William T. Love.
Love felt that by digging a short canal between the upper and lower Niagara Rivers, power could be generated cheaply to fuel the industry and homes of his would-be model city.
But despite considerable backing, Love’s project was unable to endure the one-two punch of fluctuations in the economy and Nikola Tesla’s discovery of how to economically transmit electricity over great distances by means of an alternating current.
By 1910, the dream was shattered. All that was left to commemorate Love’s hope was a partial ditch where construction of the canal had begun.
In the 1920s the seeds of a genuine nightmare were planted. The canal was turned into a municipal and industrial chemical dump-site.
Landfills can of course be an environmentally acceptable method of hazardous waste disposal, assuming they are properly sited, managed, and regulated. Love Canal will always remain a perfect historical example of how not to run such an operation.
In 1953, the Hooker Chemical Company, then the owners and operators of the property, covered the canal with earth and sold it to the city for one dollar.
It was a bad buy.
In the late ’50s, about 100 homes and a school were built at the site. Perhaps it wasn’t William T. Love’s model city, but it was a solid, working-class community. For a while.
On the first day of August, 1978, the lead paragraph of a front-page story in the New York Times read:
NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y.–Twenty five years after the Hooker Chemical Company stopped using the Love Canal here as an industrial dump, 82 different compounds, 11 of them suspected carcinogens, have been percolating upward through the soil, their drum containers rotting and leaching their contents into the backyards and basements of 100 homes and a public school built on the banks of the canal.
In an article prepared for the February, 1978 EPA Journal, I wrote, regarding chemical dump-sites in general, that “even though some of these landfills have been closed down, they may stand like ticking time bombs.” Just months later, Love Canal exploded.
The explosion was triggered by a record amount of rainfall. Shortly thereafter, the leaching began.
I visited the canal area at that time. Corroding waste-disposal drums could be seen breaking up through the grounds of backyards. Trees and gardens were turning black and dying. One entire swimming pool had been had been popped up from its foundation, afloat now on a small sea of chemicals. Puddles of noxious substances were pointed out to me by the residents. Some of these puddles were in their yards, some were in their basements, others yet were on the school grounds. Everywhere the air had a faint, choking smell. Children returned from play with burns on their hands and faces…
And then there were the birth defects. The New York State Health Department is continuing an investigation into a disturbingly high rate of miscarriages, along with five birth-defect cases detected thus far in the area.
I recall talking with the father of one the children with birth defects. “I heard someone from the press saying that there were only five cases of birth defects here,” he told me. “When you go back to your people at EPA, please don’t use the phrase ‘only five cases.’ People must realize that this is a tiny community. Five birth defect cases here is terrifying.”
A large percentage of people in Love Canal are also being closely observed because of detected high white-blood-cell counts, a possible precursor of leukemia. […]
“We knew they put chemicals into the canal and filled it over,” said one woman, a long-time resident of the Canal area., “but we had no idea the chemicals would invade our homes. We’re worried sick about the grandchildren and their children.”
Two of this woman’s four grandchildren have birth defects. The children were born and raised in the Love Canal community. A granddaughter was born deaf with a cleft palate, an extra row of teeth, and slight retardation. A grandson was born with an eye defect.
Of the chemicals which comprise the brew seeping through the ground and into homes at Love Canal, one of the most prevalent is benzene — a known human carcinogen, and one detected in high concentrations. But the residents characterize things more simply.
“I’ve got this slop everywhere,” said another man who lives at Love Canal. His daughter also suffers from a congenital defect. […]
We suspect that there are hundreds of such chemical dump-sites across this Nation.
…without a doubt, many of these old dump-sites are time bombs with burning fuses — their contents slowly leaching out. And the next victim cold be a water supply, or a sensitive wetland.
The presence of various types of toxic substances in our environment has become increasingly widespread — a fact that President Carter has called “one of the grimmest discoveries of the modern era.”
Chemical sales in the United States now exceed a mind-boggling $112 billion per year, with as many as 70,000 chemical substances in commerce.
Love Canal can now be added to a growing list of environmental disasters involving toxics, ranging from industrial workers stricken by nervous disorders and cancers to the discovery of toxic materials in the milk of nursing mothers.
It is within our power to exercise intelligent and effective controls designed to significantly cut such environmental risks. A tragedy, unfortunately, has now called upon us to decide on the overall level of commitment we desire for defusing future Love Canals. And it is not forgotten that no one has paid more dearly already than the residents of Love Canal.
Suffering illness and engaged in a fierce two year battle, long time resident of Riverview, Florida, Gina LaBruno, known affectionately by the children in her close knit community as “the water lady”has been fighting to raise awareness about the toxic water tragedy happening in Florida as the EPA turns a blind eye.
Below is LaBruno’s heartfelt response regarding some of those official’s outrage at being called on their apathy and dismissal of this life threatening issue:
I was told about some officials that were VERY upset that their names were displayed. My response:
“Well if you do not like what you see, then you obviously know there is something wrong in how this situation is being and has been handled. If you do not want your name tied into the wrong doers then you maybe should of not turned a blind eye. It is real simple If you are a government official then you have a job to “UPHOLD” the law and keep citizens “SAFE”. After all isn’t that what and why we pay/paid taxes for in this country? How has it that our government has put the environment to the back burner!! HOW??? All of a sudden one of the things we prided the “MOST” The beauty and cleanliness of our country is now being pushed aside as if it was never as important as “IT REALLY IS” at least in my mind it is one of the main issues that I can say I think of first when I think of the United States of America. I think clean drinking water and safe environment!!
How can you be a country that speaks of “GOD”(if at all one is religious) and then turn your back on all of the Natural Resources of this Earth! Just “PLEASE” I want to hear the answer to this from any of the officials in charge of our natural resources. Huh, I promise you I would not let any one of them give me a spin as to how they can fix this or how they think this is not a big deal what they are doing to the land and water!! This “IS” A VERY VERY SERIOUS ISSUE, that I feel VERY STRONGLY about. And it is a simple reality there is nothing “OK” about the damage they are causing. NOTHING! Money will not return the earth to it’s former condition. And without these resources “WE AS HUMAN BEINGS WILL NOT SURVIVE”!!!” –
Below is an article outlining serious health issues caused by decades of industrial pollution in Florida and the outright carelessness on the part of the local EPA that recognized the risks, yet ultimately took no action and allowed a residential neighborhood to be built on toxic land. Despite the EPA’s previous admission that “120,000 people living on 40,000 residential parcels could be exposed to unsafe radiation levels”, they turned a blind eye and allowed the development.
The agency’s approach to the Florida case lends further credence to the concern that it is backing away from its long-held radiological cleanup rules generally, Hirsch said.”The agency is lowering the EPA flag outside the building and raising the white flag of surrender,” he quipped.
Three Decades of Concern
Although government officials have said little about the Florida situation publicly, federal involvement at the sites surrounding Lakeland began in 1979. That’s when EPA scientists first warned their superiors that the area could pose a health threat.
The scientists noted that past phosphate mining had created elevated concentrations of radium-226 in the area’s soil. Radium produces gamma rays that can penetrate the body and increase the risk for a variety of cancers. Inhaling or ingesting the uranium byproduct can increase the risk of leukemia, lymphoma and bone cancer, specifically.
In addition, the decay of radium creates radon, an odorless, radioactive gas that can increase the risk of lung cancer by seeping into homes and polluting indoor air.
Given these risks, the EPA scientists advised that no new homes should be built on the sites until further studies were completed,but the agency took no action and residential development continued.
The Environmental Protection Agency paid little attention to the Lakeland area sites until the new millennium, agency documents show. By that time, agency officials estimated that as many as120,000 people living on 40,000 residential parcels could be exposed to unsafe radiation levels.
In 2003, EPA officials deemed the potential problem at one Lakeland subdivision — an upscale development of about 500 homes called “Oakbridge” — to be so bad that they considered it a candidate for emergency cleanup action. Low-income and minority communities might also be affected, internal documents show — creating so-called “environmental justice” concerns for the agency.
Regional politics intervened, however, and the agency did little more in the way of studying the issue over the subsequent decade. Residents were not warned of the EPA concerns and no remedial actions were taken.
Phosphate mining industry officials, who represent the second largest revenue-producing enterprise in the Sunshine State, made it known in private meetings that they strongly opposed the agency declaring the parcels Superfund sites. Such a move could make mining companies liable for as much as $11 billion in cleanup costs, according to estimates of the potential scope of the contamination that the EPA inspector general included in a 2004 report.
State health and environment officials operating under Republican governorships sided with industry, taking the position that no cleanup action was necessary if residents were being exposed to less than 500 millirems of radiation per year. State officials said this approach was permissible under guidelines suggested by the privately run National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements.
However, at the 500-millirem-per-year level, the cancer risk for humans is roughly 1 in 40, the U.S. Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry noted in a 2006 internal report it prepared regarding the Florida dispute.
EPA cleanup policy dictates that, in a worst-case scenario, no more than one in 10,000 people should be put at risk for developing cancer from manmade contamination.
Following 2010 news reports about the standoff, EPA officials began making preparations for an aerial radiation survey that was to enable them to get a better handle on the scope and severity of the problem. The plans stalled, however, after a group of Republican lawmakers from Florida — siding with state and mining-industry officials — pressured the agency not to conduct the survey. […]

TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 9— A company’s proposal to build a HUGE radioactive gypsum dumpnear a residential area with a school has brought on a campaign that pits Florida’s powerful phosphate and fertilizer industry against its growing health and environmental safety lobby.
Southwest Florida, which has vast deposits of phosphates, an ingredient in fertilizer, produces 80 percent of the nation’s fertilizer. Phosphogypsum, a waste product of the fertilizer process, has many impurities, including radium, and this waste is what would go into the dump that the company, Gardinier Big River Inc., proposes to build. For every ton of phosphate rock processed to make fertilizer, the industry reports, a ton and half of this byproduct gypsum, which is not the material used in wallboards, is created. […]
”We can store our gypsum or shut down,” said Harry Gray Gordon, vice president for industrial relations for Gardinier. ”If it shuts down,” he said, the decision would affect ”the rest of the industry with respect to the gypsum piles.” ‘Left the Factual Area’ […]
The 20-year-old lower middle income Progress Village and the school would be within a few thousand feet of the site, which is planned to cover 389 acres and to grow by 12,000 tons of gypsum every 24 hours until it reaches a height of 200 feet in 40 years.
The opponents to the dump have won the support of the Manasota 88, a well- financed environmental protection group from neighboring Manatee and Sarasota Counties. ‘No One Really Knows Hazards’. […]
Gardinier’s consultants have maintained that the radiation emitted into the air will be far short of any harmful levels. The company also says that health problems in its work force at an existing gypsum dump have not been out of the ordinary. “Leakage of tainted water would be minimal or nonexistent”, the company asserts, because of a plan to line the proposed site with a thick clay wall. Also the dump would be covered by grass to at least seven feet from the top.
The commission members have not taken sides publicly on the proposal, although they voice concern.
Janice Platt, 47 years old, the senior member of the county commission, said: ”I understand that Gardinier and the industry are concerned about economic impact, but environment and human impact have a price tag also. The old way of doing things is no longer acceptable.” – (End)
Further down, see the Wall Street Journal excerpt detailing the waste site Riverview land is on. There is extreme toxicity from the fertilizer plant(s) that, decades upon decades, continues poisoning underground aquafers with uranium and a host of other carcinogenic chemicals & toxic heavy metals. Like layers of an onion, this situation keeps getting more complex as we unravel this corruption to its core and get a much clearer picture of what Gina LaBruno has been up against.
Fact: “the half-life of uranium-238 is about 4.5 billion years, uranium-235 about 700 million years, and uranium-234 about 25 thousand years. Uranium atoms decay into other atoms, or radionuclides, that are also radioactive and commonly called decay products”, yet NIOSH deems the land “safe”? It’s easy to lose track of time, but, has it been 4.5 billion years already?…
One of the prominent toxins LaBruno’s lab results reveals is excessive amounts of BARIUM, (in addition tolead, mercury, fluoride, and a host of other toxins and pathogens). While barium can “naturally occur” in water, the excessive amounts revealed in LaBruno’s lab tests, indicate something more.
The land is a uranium waste site, but how would barium be in the water? According to the World Nuclear Organization, nuclear fission results in uranium becoming BARIUM, “the fission reaction in U-235 produces fission products such as Ba, Kr, Sr, Cs, I and Xe with atomic masses distributed around 95 and 135”. Source: Physics of Uranium and Nuclear Energy – Uranium becomes Krypton and Barium. That explains the unnaturally elevated levels of barium that correspond with the deteriorating health of the residents of Riverview.
This site handled (or was contaminated by) uranium, according to government records. The Department of Energy initially considered cleaning up this site under the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program, but determined that it didn’t have the authority to do so. See below for more details.
Other names:U.S. Phosphoric Plant, Uranium Recovery Unit • Cargill Fertilizer, Inc. • U.S. Phosphoric Products ● Note: The summary above has been automatically generated from details below.
“U. S. Phosphoric Products constructed and operated a small scale pilot plant for uranium recovery; and Gardinier investigated a process for the recovery of by-product uranium from wet process phosphoric acid.”
“Under contract to the AEC, Gardinier (under the name U.S. Phosphoric Products) operated a pilot plant from 1951 to 1954 which recovered uranium from phosphoric acid. From 1956 to 1961, it produced uranium by recovery of U3O8 from phosphoric acid. Maximum production was 60 tons of uranium concentrate per year. The uranium was ultimately used in weapons production.”

NIOSH* 2011 Evaluation: Potential exists for significant residual radiation (in 1955 and from 1962 to time of study)
“Following a site visit in April 1977, ORNL personnel performed a complete radiological survey of the site from December 14-19, 1977. The final report stated that the contamination at this site has been identified as uranium and radium in concentrations exceeding NRC guidelines for the release of property for unrestricted use at some points inside the process building and in the outdoor area near the process building and pilot operations building. Radioactive material other than that used for weapons production was processed during or after the time of DOE contracts and exposure to workers in that facility cannot be clearly attributed to either DOE or non-DOE sources.”
“Documentation reviewed confirms the presence of residual contamination outside of the period in which weapons-related production occurred, which is indistinguishable from non-related residual contamination. The facility, affected areas and conditions appear to still remain. USDOE documentation indicates that the state of Florida was notified of the conditions, actions taken are unknown.”
Current occupant/owner comment:A spokesman for Mosaic Co., the current operator at the site, said “there was a uranium extraction facility within the Riverview fertilizer manufacturing complex that operated during the 1950’s under a supply contract with the U.S. government. The facility was subsequently demolished and disposed of in keeping with prevailing regulatory requirements. In the approximately half century since it ceased production, there has been no evidence of any residual contamination associated with the site or operations of the facility.” Notes:Map marker indicates approximate center of former (demolished) uranium recovery plant, based on site diagrams from a 1981 Department of Energy report.
Despite decades upon decades ofmishandling toxic waste and blatant disregard for health of people, wildlife, and nature, Mosaic, like Monsanto, has the audacity to claim to be “helping feed the world”. This video put out by Mosaic’s public relations spin team is a propaganda piece designed to deceive the public, all the while poisoning Florida. Sickening.
Mosaic has a long history of mishandling toxic waste, yet somehow, despite all, they continue to evade responsibility for the toxic drinking water contaminated by their chemicals leaching into Riverview wellsmaking residents ill.
Letters sent to LaBruno by City Officials and the EPA (scroll further down to view), claim the water is “safe”. Despite these “bureaucratic assurances”, the decreased land value in the Villages of Bloomingdale (VOB), specifically Riverview, Florida, suggests otherwise; refer to the history of the Love Canal at the top. Additionally, LaBruno found in her research that it was an ATTORNEY who approved the land for development, failing to have a proper Environmental Impact Report done prior to approval, which begs the question, “was that an intentional oversight”?
Furthermore, “why was it an attorney, not a biologist, who surveyed the land”?…
The low land value of Riverview in comparison with the surrounding areas, is a dead giveaway, reminiscent of the Love Canal. Developers swoop in looking to make a quick profit, and build land on a toxic waste site, skirt legal and moral responsibility, then sell the plots for cheap, disregarding of the fact that families, men, women, and children, are falling ill and dying. What’s worse? The EPA has been turning a blind eye, (until, of course, it may suit their needs not to).
According to NIOSH, there is “no residual contamination”…(remember, the same was said at the beginning ofthe Love Canal tragedy too). WHY would property value be so much cheaper in Riverview? More importantly, WHY are families falling ill and dying, if it’s “safe”? It seems if the developers have enough capital, they can do anything they want and get away with it, as long as they can turn a profit, they care not if it’s at the expense of the health and well being of the residents that occupy their toxic land. According to the study in this Tampa Patch article, harmful contaminants are found in the drinking water in Florida, “what’s legal isn’t always safe when it comes to drinking water”: https://patch.com/florida/southtampa/harmful-contaminants-found-florida-drinking-water-study
The new screenshot below reflects the price for a three bedroom two bath home in Riverview, (albeit a little less square feet than the previous Riverview listing), is $45,000 less and both are still significantly lower compared to two & three bedroom homes elsewhere in Florida. Any price is a bad investment considering the contaminated well water in Riverview is making its residents deathly ill.
Toxic water IS being pumped into resident’s homes in Riverview, on a development 1.76 miles from the largest fertilizer plant in the U.S., regardless of its profiteers claiming otherwise. Refer to the previous quoted article, PLAN FOR BIG DUMP STIRS TAMPA FIGHT – NYTimes.com 1983, that fight was lost and the plant was built under the “assurance” that there would be “no risks”. As a result, there are now Illegal, un-permitted wells on a TOXIC aquafer, proving that there are serious health and environmental risks, yet officials continue to look the other way; refusing to take LaBruno’s legitimate, well documented concerns about the water (consisting of bad odors, discoloration, burning / lesions, and causing illnesses including cancer, and death), seriously. Despite installing expensive filtration systems, LaBruno states there has been no improvement in the water, or her health.
Below is a letter from an Environmental Supervisor that claims to have examined the water stating it’s “safe”, but according to LaBruno, this official was not only apathetic and dishonest, but extremely rude and condescending.
“This woman has a horrible attitude she is mean and I have several complaints about how she has spoken to resident’s that have called to complain. At one point at the end of May 2012 she lied to a resident-Renter, telling this woman that she had just come out there for a visit 2 weeks prior and that the water was fine! Huh, Therese had not EVER been out there at that point! Therese never came to VOB before June 13, 2012. Therese has even yelled at the Tallahassee officials as she was so adamant that there was no need for them to come and do a sight investigation. The official that made me aware of Therese’s attitude said she had not heard someone who works for the state ever raise their voice like that.” —
This was in June of 2012, once I had figured out that the water was bad. I went and searched for the property and I found the wells, I then was very adamant to get county officials out to figure out the situation. But instead the Florida DOH official that came out, falsified her report to the Region 4 Official. And when she did that I went and I DUG the well lines till they were visible then, the next morning when day light returned I went and took a video… How can Hillsborough County officials claim they did any type of proper checks to the water lines when this is what was on the property?! Mind you that there are “NO PERMITS” for wells in that area! That is a superfund area, and Mosaic Fertilizer has been producing Phosphoric Phosphate from this area since 1924. Then they added the Sulfuric Acid Process a little over 20yrs ago. If you read the link I have posted to this page you will see that this is some of the most TOXIC land in the country!!! TOXIC. And they know it is. So how did they get the permits to build on that land, and then get away with building outside of code regulations? I hope that with every message I write with every piece of information I show, I hope that it creates an understanding, that we MUST PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO OUR COMMUNITY’S WE MUST QUESTION OUR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS. WE MUST PARTICIPATE WITHIN OUR LOCAL DISTRICTS AND ATTEND THE AGENDA MEETINGS, this is the only way to prevent this type of activity from happening right in front of our eye’s. Please be patient I will be adding a lot more information. I am juggling many aspects of this crisis right now, so my time is always taken up~ If not by this then by our everyday life, and unfortunately that is the part I am fighting to get back.” –Gina LaBruno
Below is a photograph of chemical stains that appeared in the toilet bowl only 4 days after it was cleaned. According to LaBruno, Riverview is not getting safe drinking water, they are getting RECLAIMED water (for extra pressure) mixed with WELL WATER from illegal wells.
The next photograph is the bathtub drain, showing chemical stains, and excessive hair loss, one of the most prevalent symptoms, along with chronic fatigue, edema (swelling), skin lesions, decreased immune function, infections, cancers, and a host of other health complications caused by the toxic water.
We’ve all heard of Hinkley, California and Erin Brockovich. It is not unusual for entities that believe they’re above the law to “poison people and lie about it”. That is why LaBruno contacted Erin Brockovich for help with this ongoing battle.
The development that myself and my 11yr old son lived in for 4 yrs is feeding toxic water to the resident’s of this community. Which is in Riverview, FL it sits 1.76 miles from the MOSAIC Fertilizer (Cargill Co.)
GYPSUM Stacks and Cooling Ponds. This company has resided there since 1924 and they make a lot of fertilizer and energy product there. This is also where the Fluoride for the the potable water sysytem’s is made. And it is made with the waste from creating the fertilizer. Fluorosilicic Acid is the man made version of Fluoride. This company is known to be a top violator of pollution.
Having so many spills through out the land and the air, it has made the ground water aquifer “EXTREMELY TOXIC”.
The developers and the CDD to the community have placed ILLEGAL UNPERMITTED WELLS on the property. The land is DELINEATED making the aquifer TOXIC. These developers and county officials are allowing well water to be given to the residents in place of the potable water supply. And they are doing it thru a cross connection with the reclaimed water line.
The amount of people whom have fallen ill is not just a coincidence. What it is, is a violation of FEDERAL LAWS.
Cancer, Extreme Fatigue, Anemia, Hair Loss, Vision Problems, Breathing Issue’s, Skin Rash’s, Tumor’s, Teeth Cracking, Sudden Heart Attacks, 9yr old that was not ill had a stroke. And death. Resident’s with diabetes seem to be the one’s that have fallen ill the fastest and the hardest.
The local government officials are telling lies and helping the developers to cover this up. They have lied to their lead officials out of Tallahassee, and the Tallahassee officials have ignored the blatant lies, they have ignored the photo’s and water test result’s.The federal officials that were lied too are also running this issue thru circles. NO ONE, NOT ONE GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL HAS STEPPED IN AND DONE THE RIGHT THING. NOT ONE, “YET“
I have had 14 water tests done. Test results show we are not receiving potable water, I have taken videos of the well lines that are tapped into to the county water main lines. I also took pictures of the water meters on those water mains for months because those meters are not ticking. Yet they were still billing for water usage!!
I hope that by posting this issue here tonight I can help bring light to this very serious problem occurring through out the U.S.
Bringing awareness to each other is all we have right now. We have to step out of our comfort zones and into the local government offices by attending the agenda meeting’s paying attention and voting before certain amendments and changes are passed. This is how “We The People” can pull our selves and our government out of this awful mess.
It is the TAXPAYER’s Dollar and we have a right to “CHANGE” what we do not like.
I will take any suggestion’s from others that are going through similar issues.
STAY STRONG, STEP UP, FIGHT HARD, BELIEVE IN YOURSELVES. IT IS ALL UP TO US COMING TOGETHER AND PUSHING FOR WHAT THIS COUNTRY PROMISED!
THE TAKING OF THOSE TAX DOLLARS FROM EVERY PAYCHECK WAS/IS TO BE USING IT FOR OUR WELL BEING KEEPING THE INSIDE OF OUR BORDERS REGULATED.“
Gina LaBruno, “the water lady“, strong advocate for bringing attention to this serious matter, hopes to find resolution for the residents suffering illnesses due to the toxic water cover-up, herself included. Deeply concerned for the well being of the residents of Riverview, and keeping the lines of communication open in her community, LaBruno had this to say:
“She, (Riverview resident), has told me that since my last visit the water has gotten very bad again and that the neighbors are even discussing this with her. She cannot remove the red ring from her toilet bowl or from her bath tub. She has been sick now for weeks. Also there is a former property manager who 5 weeks after starting there became VERY sick and had seriousbreathing problems. I met with her silently and informed her of the issues asking her if she had been drinking water from there and she told me yes! She was making the coffee from the tap water. I expressed my concern about this and she also expressed her findings and concern on how things were operating in within the HOA and the CDD. She then put in her 2 week notice and has had a horrible time ridding herself of the illness she is suffering . I have not spoken to her over the last two weeks but I intend to get an update from her soon. Also there is more information I recently found out about a resident owner that has lived there since the community opened, her husband and her 19yr old daughter both have died.”
– Gina LaBruno
Gina LaBruno’s water test’s and the DEP water test’s prove the water is not potable drinking water, all lab results have been well documented and cataloged for future reference.
Below is an article by George Glasser that Gina LaBruno has expressed deep appreciation for, since Mr. Glasser sheds yet more light on this seriously compound contaminated water issue:
EXCERPT: “In April, 2000, the Palm Beach Dental Director, Robert Dumbaugh, found himself in a dilemma in his push to fluoridate the drinking water of the small town of Wellington. When local activists revealed that the product used to fluoridate is, in reality, captured pollution from the production of phosphate fertilizer, Thomas Reeves, the US National Fluoridation Engineer, remained silent on the issue, refusing to answer any questions about the origin of the fluoridation agent.”
“So, during the one day field trip to the Cargill Fertilizer facility, Graziani and Dumbaugh had managed to redefine the nature of FSA pollution effluent”!
However, the US Environmental Protection Agency has a different view of the captured pollution. In 1999, the EPA established that all facilities producing phosphate fertilizers in the United States must use the maximum achievable control technology (MACT) to reduce emissions of hydrogen fluoride, and heavy metals, including arsenic, beryllium, radionuclides, chromium and lead, as well as methyl isobutyl ketone.
Many of the hazardous air pollutants (or air toxics) released from the production of phosphate fertilizer are known or suspected of causing cancer or other serious health effects in humans and animals. EPA’s action was estimated to reduce emissions of hazardous air pollutants by about 345 tons annually, representing approximately 57 percent reduction from current levels.
National Sanitation Foundation International, which “certifies” the fluoridating agent, stated in correspondence to Florida Department of Health administrator, Pepe Mendez, that because of the EPA’s proposed new guidelines for Arsenic levels in drinking water, there might be “more product failures” due to inherent arsenic in the fluorosilicic acid. They also stated that beryllium was also a problem.
Both beryllium and arsenic are Group 1(a) substances or known to cause cancer in humans. Scientists have found that arsenic is responsible for causing, prostate, bladder, kidney, liver, skin and lung cancers in humans. Beryllium is considered the only verified causative of osteogenic sarcoma, and the EPA’s maximum contaminate level of Beryllium allowed in drinking water is 4.0 parts per billion. Both, arsenic and beryllium are cumulative toxicants in the body. Lead, a neurotoxicant, is also present in the fluoridating agent. It, too, is a cumulative poison.
Below is a screenshot of a letter LaBruno received from the EPA telling her the water is “safe”:
Please help show support for the brave Gina LaBruno, and all of the residents suffering ill effects from the toxic water in Riverview, by liking her facebook page, sharing information, and speaking out. The EPA and other public officials must be held accountable for turning a blind eye to this atrocity.https://www.facebook.com/wateratVOB
What might it take for city officials to acknowledge this serious problem? How about a nice big drink of water from the faucet of one of the homes in Riverview?…
How about it, EPA, care for a sip?
Notice the chemical residue stains in the bottom of that jar:
“I am over here in RIVERVIEW, FL Collecting DATA about the water at my former Residence. The community is 1.76 miles from MOSAIC formerly GARDINIER and they make PHOSPHATE Fertilizer. Well this company also CREATED NUCLEAR WEAPONS, and the land they built this development on is said to be a former TOXIC DUMP SITE. I have been poisoned with BARIUM, MERCURY, LEAD, ARSENIC, and I am more then certain RADIATION . Many are sick. Many have died. The County and The Health Dept. are denying what is going on.

What do we really know about Smart Meters, other than the usual propaganda about how “they are good for us”, “they will save us money”, “they are safe”? Let’s find out, are Smart Meters really so “smart” (or safe, or cost effective)?
Apparently, not for the consumer, but they are extremely smart for the power companies that are using them to hike up people’s bills, then shut off their power until they agree to pay the increased costs. And, indirectly, for the medical profession and mortuaries that profit from the illness and death that overexposure toEMR/EMF/RFradiation causes, and for the contractors that get hired to rebuild someone’s home after the fire damage caused by so called “Smart Meters” that were improperly installed by under-trained technicians. And, maybe even for lawyers hired to represent victims of forced Smart Meter installation. But, for us (the consumer), not so much.
I had the opportunity to speak with Josh del Sol about his new documentary, Take Back Your Power: Investigating The “Smart” Grid. Prior to watching his amazing documentary, I didn’t know anything about Smart Meters, they haven’t been installed in my region… (yet). I honestly did not have a clue about the serious risks associated with “Smart Meters” until a friend of mine sent me the link to Josh’s documentary and recommended that I contact him, and I’m so glad she did, thank you, Christine! This is a serious issue that everyone needs to get educated about and involved in.
Introducing Josh del Sol
Josh del Sol is the director and producer of Take Back Your Power: Investigating the “Smart” Grid, his first feature-length film. Take Back Your Power has in 2014 been named winner of the AwareGuide Transformational Film of the Year, the Indie Fest Annual Humanitarian Award, and Leo Award for Best Feature Documentary (British Columbia).
Born and raised near Vancouver BC, Josh is passionate about the growing movement of social awakening, and has a vision for a more equitable social structure with decentralized energy production and technology which harmonizes with biological life and rights. Josh finds inspiration in those of courage who speak truth to power, from a place of non-violence and vision, laying the foundation for necessary solutions. His hobbies include hiking, research, travel and meditation. He lives in Washington State with his wife and daughter. Josh can be reached through his contact us page.
Q & A with Josh del Sol
Rebel Siren: It’s great meeting you, Josh, may I ask what initially inspired your documentary “Take Back Your Power”?
Josh del Sol: In the summer of 2011, I started hearing reports about all the problems associated with the Californian “smart” meter installation program. I thought, ‘Why isn´t this issue being talked about?’ As I dug into the facts and begun to interview experts, it became evident that this is an example of greenwashing to the max. Utilities and governments are using people’s good intentions to save energy and to be ecologically responsible, and creating a twisted agenda that does not save energy but causes the people harm. So, I called a cameraman friend and we just started interviewing people who are affected by the radiation, which is actually 1,000x to 10,000 times stronger maximum levels than an active cell phone. We then got into interviewing experts on hacking, and gathering footage from experts on constitutional and privacy issues.
Rebel Siren: What is the next step in the “Take Back Your Power” movement?
Josh del Sol: The next phase of our movement is to help people easily remove their consent to “smart” meters, and enforce accountability for those that are causing harm by deployment of “smart” meter programs. To participate, subscribe for free atwww.takebackyourpower.netand you’ll receive updates and a notification of solutions when available. This will be for everyone, whether or not there is a so-named ‘smart’ meter on their home or not.
Rebel Siren: How do you feel about other issues affecting our global civilization such as GMOs, vaccines, weather/climate modification, fracking, etc.?
Josh del Sol: It’s obvious that there are many examples of the corporate-government establishment negatively affecting humanity. It’s time that these programs need to be reined in, so that our species can continue. This is becoming blatant even to many within this establishment. Most who are serving the various negative agendas are not bad people; they’ve just been roped in, indoctrinated and are getting a paycheck. But people are waking up.
Rebel Siren: Have you had a problem with disinfo-attacks by social media shills that are hired to suppress awareness and prevent public outcry about hazardous profit-over-people programs harming humanity such as the Smart Grid?
Josh del Sol: This doesn’t concern me so much. When you’re bringing truth forward, there will always be those who don’t like it, because they’ve been making (or will make) incredible profits from people not knowing the facts about what they are doing. It’s normal that in an information battle, propagandists will be hired. The important thing is that true facts are provided — even if they are inconvenient. Truth has a quality that over time, people can feel. We may get sucked in for a while, but as long as there are those who are willing to speak the truth, there is a way back for us all. Even for the propagandists, who are at a place where they haven’t yet understood that their lies are also harming themselves.

Scientific Studies Concluding The Connection Of Aluminum To Alzheimer’s
Functional and morphological changes in cultured neurons of rat cerebral cortex induced by long-term application of aluminum –
“Aluminum is an environmental neurotoxin and a suspected risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease. The neurotoxicity of aluminum on cultured neurons of rat cerebral cortex was investigated using an assay system for synapse formation and immunohistochemistry. The frequency of spontaneous oscillations of intracellular Ca2+, which is correlated to the number of synapses, was decreased after exposure to 100 μM of aluminum chloride for 22 days. Long-term application of aluminum (48 days) caused aggregation of cell bodies and fasciculation of processes. Processes and cell bodies were strongly stained by antibody to tau protein, which is one of the main components of Alzheimer’s neurofibrillary tangles. It is suggested that the characteristics of the degeneration of cultured neurons induced by aluminum show some similarities to the pathology observed in brains with Alzheimer’s disease.” Source: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0006291X92902179

Connecting The Dots
Below is a detailed and referenced article, Making Sense of Science – Aluminum, originally published July 2, 2014 by The Liberty Beacon, helping connect the dots, exposing corporate media lies (disinformation / propaganda) and its resulting status quo “denial” (via the bidding of corporate profiteers), that has gone on throughout history to this day, at the expense of our collective health and global environment.
Helen had written about 4 dangerous common toxins in her article titled ‘Whats Your Poision’. – She focused on lead, mercury, cadmium, aluminium (known as aluminum in the USA) that are all around us – not only in the environment but which are now found in some of the foods we eat, the medicines we take, the products we put on our skin and what we build our homes and other structures with. Even many infant formulas contain concerning levels of multiple toxic chemicals, including aluminum. I have written about these 4, fairly extensively in one of the chapters in my book. Helen pulled some facts from that chapter.
By Tuesday afternoon, I had discovered that one of the UK’s largest Science websites “Sense About Science” had completely discredited the article. They wrote a counter article called ‘Tackling Misconceptions About Toxins’
Judging by some pretty major events throughout history, mainstream Science doesn’t always seem to want the public knowing about certain dangerous chemicals because usually they were the organisations that said they were safe from the start, only to be proven otherwise years later.
Does anyone remember the huge lies we were told about smoking, DDT, Lead, Thalidomide, Vioxx to name just a small few? All of these were promoted as safe, healthy, and good for us by these sorts of ‘science’ organisations.
Now we all know the real truth.
These were not just a little lie but were in fact big big lies, with billions upon billions of pounds being made by many corporations. But more important than that, think about all the people that were harmed because of these lies, the lack of proper testing, and how they were marketed to the public. Deaths, disease and cancers were caused directly because of these lies. And it could actually be in the millions. In all of these cases, studies were falsified, people were paid off to keep quiet or paid to tell lies so that they could continue to sell their product. It wasn’t an easy task to get them to take responsibility for the harm they caused. And in each of these instances, Doctors and Scientists were speaking on behalf of these companies for their medicines, pesticides and cigarettes saying to the public ‘you can trust us we are experts’
Yet look at what we now know. They lied.
Most of you reading this will know that we are now living in a world where our authorities are being bought more than ever before, to do what powerful companies want them to do. Congressmen are being bought to vote on things that interest companies, our Governments tell lies constantly and don’t ever seem to do what they promise and pharmaceutical companies are being sued for fraud and misconduct left right and center. This is pretty much a fact. And its not on a small scale – its rampant abuse.
To those who are aware of this, nowadays when mainstream science ridicule something, it usually is because they are trying to squash the truth from being brought to light to the majority of the public. They try desperately to pull the wool over the eyes of the people by using the same old routine ‘trust me, I’m a expert’
In these situations, I often remind myself of this very famous quote:
All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788 – 1860)
Yep. Damn straight. The concerns about DDT, Lead, Smoking, Vioxx and Thalidomide were all at first ridiculed, violently opposed, but now, are self evident.
Sence About Science pulled apart Helen’s article saying that every statement I had made, was not true and that I was alarming the public.
But little do they realise that how they wrote their article (see the very badly written PDF, see here) was an absolute joke and I can show you why. There are so many holes in what they have written that its almost laughable.
Its immediate to see, that they basically want the public to believe that natural chemicals are far more dangerous than manmade ones, and that no disease or cancer is ever caused to anyone by being exposed to chemicals! Whilst it’s true, some natural chemicals can harm in certain amounts or in those that are sensitive to them, but most of them do not as they don’t have the chemical compositions that synthetic chemicals do. And a good point to make about chemicals in general is, how do we know that some individuals won’t be sensitive to them or worse, seriously harmed by them? Something that is not harmful to one person may in fact be very harmful to someone else! If you have a system in your body that is already suffering from something else, for instance your endocrine system (hormones) aren’t perhaps working efficiently, then a chemical that is proven to harm the endocrine system may very likely make you worse!
It is therefore highly likely that synthetic chemicals are causing cancers (and in this case, causing Alzheimer’s) because we know in the studies that have been done on some of the concerning chemicals that this is where the evidence is pointing! Many man made chemicals are known carcinogens! That is a fact. Yet what is more worrying is that some of the chemicals these organisations support, and say are safe, have been put onto the market before being effectively tested for safety over the long term, or if they are safe when mixed with other chemicals!
So these science bodies are making statements that have not been proven at all to be true in the first place!
They do not know that their chemicals DO NOT CAUSE harm. The statements they make to the public are not based on real facts. They twist words around very cleverly and are relying on gullible people coming to their site who think that what they say is always 100% scientifically and ethically correct. Often these sorts of science websites mix truth in amongst their lies, so that the average person won’t be able to read into the real lies!
They said I am alarming the public with my information but that is GOOD, I want people to be alarmed, we are facing an epidemic with toxicity, like never before seen in the world.
Now, onto the topic of this blog post.
Does Aluminum exposure cause Alzheimer’s?
Well, what is Aluminum?
Aluminum is a natural metal that is found in the earth’s crust. Its now around us in ways we can’t quite even comprehend. Its basically everywhere. Now the science community like to say this that it is indeed everywhere too, but they forget that it wasn’t as prevalent as this 100 years ago! It was always in the soil and some was found in the air, but now its also found in our foods, cosmetics, medicines, and homes.
Many power plants and other industries put loads of aluminium particles into the air. And whilst we do ingest a lot of it through what we eat, we now are also having aluminum added to many everyday items! This is where the problem lies, that its not just found naturally its being added on purpose to cosmetics, food and medicines. Some are saying there’s now also huge levels of extra aluminum in the air, due to ‘GEO–ENGINEERING’.
Most of the public simply do not know this stuff!
When something is found around us so much, its only natural our bodies will also then contain these metals and chemicals. Whilst some levels of course is normal, increased levels is not always safe for an individual, and many studies are showing this to be very true. As you will soon discover, studies have been done on deceased Alzheimer brains and high levels of aluminum have been found in their tissues.
When you understand that aluminum is a proven neurotoxin (which even the scientists don’t deny) and that its found in so many aspects of our lives, then you can perhaps understand that there comes a point when a high level of aluminum becomes a problem (for some people) because the brain just can’t handle anymore of it. Its like slowly drinking alcohol, you might not feel the effects at first, but the more you have, the more likely you are going to behave strangely and eventually feel unwell.
Whilst our body can naturally detox things to a degree, we are not like bottomless garbage bins that can handle having chemicals piled into us. There comes a time when its too much. And many people now have bodies that are already struggling to cope with the amount of chemicals in their bodies.
Lets look at what Sense about Science said in relation to aluminium contributing to causing Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer’s Society says:
“There is no evidence that aluminium causes Alzheimer’s disease. Aluminium is found in protein build-ups associated with Alzheimer’s disease, but that doesn’t mean that this is due to too much aluminium being present in the body – the same is true of other metals.”
I love how they made such a sweeping and ‘final’ statement to really throw people off the scent. ‘The same is true of other metals’. Oh really. Have you studied all the other metals in relation to Alzheimer’s then and have you studied the effects other chemicals have with several other ones, or what about the thousands of others we have in our environment and therefore in our bodies?
Lets now exam what the ‘other side of science’ is saying about whether or not Alzheimer’s is being contributed to by Aluminum.
A study published on the highly esteemed peer reviewed medical journal site, pub med stated in the abstract of a study by Professor Chris Exley (who by the way seems to be doing a lot of research into the effects aluminum and other metals are having in regards to causing Alzheimer’s and other health problems – so he’s one to pay attention to i’d say – click on his name to read his further studies!):
Aluminium is neurotoxic. Its free ion, Al3+ (aq), is highly biologically reactive and uniquely equipped to do damage to essential cellular (neuronal) biochemistry. This unequivocal fact must be the starting point in examining the risk posed by aluminium as a neurotoxin in humans. Aluminium is present in the human brain and it accumulates with age. The most recent research demonstrates that a significant proportion of individuals older than 70 years of age have a potentially pathological accumulation of aluminium somewhere in their brain. What are the symptoms of chronic aluminiumintoxication in humans? What if neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease are the manifestation of the risk of aluminium as a neurotoxin? How might such an (outrageous) hypothesis be tested? You can see the link for this study here:
And its also very interesting to note that when you type the following keywords Aluminum Alzheimer’s into pub med, 988 studies come up! Of course not all are going to support the hypothesis that Aluminum can cause Alzheimer’s but if you have the time, check out how many actually do! Looks like there’s a lot of concerned people (Scientists!) with some compelling proof, right? And, from what I have been reading their have been scientists that have been very concerned about Aluminium for the last 100 years!
Now it’s also worth saying, am I the only person in the world saying that aluminium could be causing alzheimer’s? No, of course not! Could it be that I have read books, and studies on the same subject matter, and that I also listened to Doctors and Scientists speak out about this very valid health concern in the world today? Yes! Am I lone horse, saying something that no one else knows? Of course not. The numbers on ‘this side’ are increasing every day. And its purely because of Science! The medical studies that have proven certain things in relation to chemicals to be true!
In an article appearing in the Townsend Letter for Doctors (November 1993), Dr. Michael A. Weiner, executive director of the Alzheimer’s Research Institute summarized our present understanding of the dangers of aluminum exposure when he stated:
“aluminum has been known as a neurotoxic substance for nearly a century.The scientific literature on its toxic effects has now grown to a critical mass. It is not necessary to conclude that aluminum causes Alzheimer’s disease to recommend that it be reduced or eliminated as a potential risk. It is the only element noted to accumulate in the tangle-bearing neurons characteristic of the disease and is also found in elevated amounts in four regions of the brain of Alzheimer’s patients.”
In the past, there hasn’t been many definitive studies that proved this link but last month, a study came out that was undertaken by Professor Exley from Keele University in the UK which showed that they had found ‘unequivocally’, high levels of aluminum in the brain of a deceased Alzheimer’s sufferer. The deceased had been exposed to aluminum at work. (1)
Another subject in the study, also a British woman, who had died of Alzheimer’s was also found to have high levels of aluminum in her tissues. Approximately 16 years before her death, there had been an industrial accident near where she lived where 20 metric tons of aluminum sulphate had gone into the local water supply. So its highly likely the lady literally drank herself to developing Alzheimer’s.
Interesting to note in this image that the ‘alzheimer’ brain reduces greatly in size and looks like its been eaten by something. What could do this? Hmmm perhaps something that eats away at nerves and tissues? What has been shown to do this? Aluminium! It is a selective neurotoxin that attacks the nerves.
And in a story seen in the Daily Mail article titled Top Scientist Links Disabilities with mother’s exposure to mass poisoning in 1988 Professor Exley, (mentioned previously in this article) has been investigating other concerns associated to this massive spill of aluminum sulphate (in case you are wondering why its added to our water supplies it’s to make it appear clear) which happened in Camelford North Cornwall back in 1988. Instead of this chemical going into a storage tank, it was added directly into the water supply without the publics knowledge.
Many locals then went on to drinking this highly toxic water. One of them was Sarah Matta, now a mother to 7 children. After being unsure as to why so many of her children were seriously unwell, Sarah got in contact with Professor Exley (who is one of the UK’s top Scientists in relation to bioinorganic chemistry) to tell him what had happened to her and her family.
6 of her 7 children have disabilities which sound suspiciously to me, like problems that can occur from toxicity. Between them they have: possible autism, developmental problems, speech problems, and anxiety. Sarah herself had blood tests taken and was found to have aluminium levels 20 times higher than is normal.
Professor Exley is extremely concerned that others who were also in contact with the poisoned water supply may have harmed themselves, including their children through their exposure. He told the Daily Mail:
”Aluminium is toxic. Studies in animals show that if you feed mothers aluminium in the water supply, the offspring will exhibit developmental problems.”
I find it interesting we have Science bodies (with very dubious funding connections) talking about Aluminium as being ‘nothing to worry about’ yet a highly esteemed scientist who is an expert in his field has been studying this chemical for many years and is discovering many alarming connections. And it’s interesting to note that he is not gaining anything out of saying Aluminium is dangerous! Yet as you will read below, could it be that Pharmaceutical companies and chemical companies have a lot more to lose?
A Film maker also became so concerned about Aluminum and how it has invaded our lives, that he made the film The Age Of Aluminum – you can see the full movie below this post, I highly recommend you take a look. The film exposes environmental disasters that have happened in the UK, South Africa and Hungary due to the Aluminum Industry. The film features an interview with Christopher Shaw who is a well known neuroscientist. He shares his concerns about the effects Aluminum is having on human health:
“Many researchers are beginning to accept that aluminum has some sort of role to play in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Whether it does in others is still an open question, but Alzheimer’s is really coming into focus and it’s fairly clear that the body burden of aluminum from all the sources to which humans are exposed may be contributing to Alzheimer’s disease.”
And Dr Joseph Mercola stated in his article First Case Study To Show Direct Link Between Alzheimer’s and Aluminum Toxicity that Aluminum heads straight to your brain:
Aluminum is to your central nervous system as cigarette smoke is to your lungs. Scientists are clear that toxic metals damage brain tissue and lead to degenerative disease by producing oxidative stress—and aluminum is one of the worst offenders. With Alzheimer’s rates skyrocketing, today’s multiple avenues of aluminum exposure are of great concern. Just as with particles in the environment, once aluminum is in your tissues, your body has a difficult time releasing it. This toxic metal serves absolutely no biological purpose, so the less of it you ingest, the better.
Once in your body, it travels around easily, unimpeded, piggybacking on your iron transport system. It crosses biological barriers that normally keep other types of toxins out, such as your blood-brain barrier. Over time, aluminum can accumulate in your brain and do serious damage your neurological health—regardless of your age. Aluminum toxicity may be doing as much damage to our children as to our seniors.
I could continue on and on about this subject. I could link to the studies proving the concerns. I spent about an hour writing this, I don’t have time to go into it more, but oh boy, I easily could. All that I would urge you to do is, do your own research, look for non government, non pharmaceutical, non chemical company funded studies. That’s where the truth lies. I’ve written a fair bit more about this subject in my book.
Many Alzheimer’s organisations are often funded by the drug companies who make the medications for the treatment of this awful disease. And many of these drug companies also add aluminum to their medicines.
People like myself are simply trying to educate people about decreasing their exposure to Aluminum, and to encourage them to detox their body with proven metal chelators. If the public started doing this on a huge scale, then perhaps its worth considering, would the Alzheimer’s drug industry fall apart? Is this why there is such a huge denial amongst the mainstream Science industry? Whilst some say Aluminium accumulation is not the only cause of this brain disease, it is quite possibly a huge factor.
Another area where a lot of aluminium is also found, is in the vaccine industry as its used as an adjuvant. When you take a look at the chart below, and see how much money is tied up with vaccinations, you can quickly understand that the purchase of Aluminium for just these medicines alone, is actually quite hard to fathom, and therefore, if someone is threatening that industry for fears around its safety, there’s going to be people fighting very hard to keep it all quiet.
And, Alzheimer’s is not the only neurological problem Aluminium can cause. It is now also being linked to causing Autism and other neurological problems. Christina England, investigative journalist for Vactruth writes:
A recent study conducted by Canadian scientists Professor Christopher Shaw and Dr. Lucija Tomljenovic revealed that the more vaccines that children receive containing the adjuvant aluminum, the greater their chance is of developing autism, autoimmune diseases and neurological problems in the future.
In 2013, in their paper, published by Springer Science+Business Media, titled Aluminum in the Central Nervous System: Toxicity in Humans and Animals, Vaccine Adjuvants, and Autoimmunity, they revealed that during a 17-year period, the rates of autism had increased significantly in countries that had the most vaccinations containing the adjuvant aluminum. 
Aluminum is an experimentally demonstrated neurotoxin and the most commonly used vaccine adjuvant. Despite almost 90 years of widespread use of aluminum adjuvants, medical science’s understanding about their mechanisms of action is still remarkably poor. There is also a concerning scarcity of data on toxicology and pharmacokinetics of these compounds. In spite of this, the notion that aluminum in vaccines is safe appears to be widely accepted. Experimental research, however, clearly shows that aluminum adjuvants have a potential to induce serious immunological disorders in humans. In particular, aluminum in adjuvant form carries a risk for autoimmunity, long-term brain inflammation and associated neurological complications and may thus have profound and widespread adverse health consequences.
So it seems that Aluminum exposure and harm, can come from many different ways, and is very much something to seriously have concerns about. And its alarming if you look a bit deeper at other medicines such as common antacids, taken by millions of people around the world for indigestion, calls for even more concern. Talcid, which is made by Bayer which contains an aluminum derivative clearly states on the insert that:
‘long-term use of high dosage may lead to aluminum deposits in bone and nerve tissue. This may lead to brain damage (dementia) and anaemia. In the case of renal insufficiency and long term use of Talcid necessitates regular check of patient’s aluminum levels’
WOW, right from the horses mouth. The drug company is clearly stating that aluminum can cause dementia! Yep, now you know that they know.
It’s a little bit sinister isn’t it, that these ‘Science’ websites are trying to discredit little old me – who receives no funding from anyone I want to ad, yet they don’t even know what they are talking about. Have they read the package insert of antacids and other medications containing Aluminium derivatives I wonder?
And if anyone wants to dispute that Vaccines aren’t proven to cause autism and mentions Dr Wakefield being a fraud, then why are these 28 studies published in highly esteemed medical journals showing the same findings as his? Sense About Science are the type of organisation that say there’s no link, yet LOOK right here, there’s proof that it is true.
Here is a list of 28 studies from around the world that support Dr. Wakefield’s research:
Archivos venezolanos de puericultura y pediatría 2006; Vol 69 (1): 19-25.
Gastroenterology. 2005:128 (Suppl 2);Abstract-303
This where I found writing this article so much fun! For those that are interested in Sense About Science; they say they are a charity and pretty much rely on outside funding and guess where most of it looks like it comes from? Pharmaceutical and chemical companies. And, yes, I’m being a bit lazy here, as I’m just cutting and pasting this next section from wikipedia and it is a bit out of date, but I think you will see what I found is enough to prove my point!
Funding for the trust has been increasing. Some is derived from industrial organizations engaged in scientific dispute, clinical trials and research for which SAS is supportive (e.g. genetically modified crops) as well as major publishing houses. For example for the fiscal year ending 5 April 2008, the trust received £145,902 in donations. Disclosed corporate donations comprised £88,000 with pharmaceutical company Astra Zeneca donating £35,000. Previous donations included other pharmaceutical industries such as Pfizer. This dependency has now been diminished since for the fiscal year ending April 2010, the trust received £183,971 in donations of which only £17,500 was derived from the pharmaceutical industry (Unilever and G E Healthcare), in 2011 the amount diminished further to less than 6% funding derived from industry sources (the trust received £268,184 in donations with £15,000 from industry) with the rest derived from Science Bodies and individuals.
The corporations and irresponsible scientists that profit at the expense of our health and environment? Who can forget hearing about the historical ad, “DDT Is Good For Me-e-e!”? disinformation shills (a.k.a. trolls) that attacked it in defense of DDT. Look at their outrageous comments, and the fact that the video in the article was “removed” on youtube. Those are classic disinformation tactics, obvious once you learn their strategy and recognize their “cookie cutter” format. “Forum Posters” are hired by PR Companies contracted by corporate profiteers, to infiltrate social media, gang-stalk/remove or discredit information in an attempt to sway public opinion. The truth about DDT, its marketing spin/public acceptance, mass spraying from planes, then subsequent BAN, are outlined in the video below.
Despite what corporate profiteers would like us to believe, why would we trust them after their continual duplicitous marketing “spins”? Why would we think that present day aluminum being put into vaccines and our global atmosphere via geoengineering research projects (mass aerial spraying of aluminum, barium, strontium & sulphuric acid nanoparticles), is any different? Let’s keep connecting the dots until the pattern is clear for all to see, trust your own eyes.
Following the money always leads to where the truth lies. Gates plays Bridge for Alzheimer’s Research 6/2014, and has a vested interest in Geoengineering Research, a.k.a. ALUMINUM (with sulfate, barium, strontium) NANOPARTICLES AERIALLY SPRAYED INTO THE ATMOSPHERE. Given the scientific research concluding aluminum and Alzheimer’s, isn’t that a “conflict of interest” AND perhaps the reason Alzheimer’s Association suddenly denies an aluminum connection?
Intentional obfuscation in the mainstream at will of its funders, furthering the agenda of the controlling powers, and conflict of interest in medical research, and all facets of our world, is evident if we simply dare to pay attention and think outside the box. ~Rebel Siren – Exposing Corruption and Crimes Against Humanity
In the video below, Dr. Christopher Shaw discusses the toxic effects of aluminum in vaccines and the severe rise in neurological disorders among the population such as Autism, Alzheimer’s, ALS & more. His extensive research concludes that Aluminum, which is present in most of our vaccines, (as well as our global atmosphere via geoengineering), is the main culprit causing ALS and Alzheimer’s symptoms in laboratory mice.

For More Information On The Dangers Of Geoengineering And How To Get Involved
Despite facebook’s rigidly enforced“real name“ policy, there are literally hundreds(if not thousands) of fake profiles & pages created by sock puppets, (shills; hired infiltrators, TROLLS), that are allowed to remain on facebook to harass people.
Shills create fake pages to impersonate activists, gang-stalk report activists, and spread disinformation as an attempt to influence public perception, also to prevent public outcry for the corporations they shill for. Even after multiple reports by honest people that alert facebook to the problem, the shills(trolls) are allowed to remain; while activists using legitimate pen names, such as Rebel Siren, as well as other people using alternate names for various reasons such as personal safety or a nickname they’ve gone by their entire lives, immediately get suspended.
Facebook’s “real name” policy is supposedly designed to prevent “bad behavior“, such as dishonesty and deception; which is not an issue with good people no matter what their name, especially well meaning activists seeking to raise awareness and share information for a safer, healthier world! The bottom line is, disinformation shills a.k.a. trolls are exploiting facebook’s “real name“ policy and getting away with it.
Oh, the irony!
Instead of agreeing to conduct a proper investigation, facebook merely suspends/removes activists’ profiles while allowing the disinformation shills whose mission it is to target and harass activists, a.k.a. cyber-stalking, to run rampant attacking honest people. “Bad behavior” as defined by using “fake names” according to facebook policy, is most definitely an issue with the disinformation shills a.k.a. trolls who routinely exhibit the worst of it on social media, yet are allowed to remain and run rampant with whatever names they use, whether fake or “real”.
The trolls are allowed to continue with relentless cyber-bullying and harassment, despite multiple reports made on them. How difficult is it to get a profile suspended by reporting it? For activists, it’s nearly impossible. We report those that target and harass us repeatedly, without success, always with the same message, it “does not violate facebook’s community standards”. For the trolls, it seems easy, they make one report and it’s down that day, but why is that? What do the trolls have that honest people don’t? Corporate backing? Unlimited funding? An insider-facebook aide abusing their job to assist them? We can only speculate.
The disinformation shills a.k.a. TROLLS chose to sell out humanity in favor of dirty energy, Monsanto/GMOs, geoengineering, fracking, vaccines, false flag deceit, and the list goes on, hired as “forum posters” by corporate contracted public relations companies, creating profiles for the sole purpose of perpetuating corporate deceit by targeting and harassing outspoken activists, yet these trolls are allowed to remain unchecked on facebook (and youtube), while decent people trying to make a difference get raked over the coals. As outlined in Dispelling Internet Disinformation Tactics – Debunking The Debunkersthe tactics used by these fake profiles & pages are indeed relentless forms of cyberstalking & harassment that clearly falls into the category of “bad behavior”. So then, why would facebook enforce its “real name” policy, yet allow truly fake profiles/pages to continue harassing people? (Hence, the nickname, “fakebook“).
For example, there were FAKE “Rebel Siren” pages that have been reported SEVERAL times and others, as well as having been banned from the real Rebel Siren page. The FAKE “Rebel Siren” pages had been created by disinformation shills a.k.a. TROLLS, for the purpose of harassing and impersonating, in an attempt to discredit & “destroy the reputation of”, also known as the tactic of “character assassination“.
The trolls that had created FAKE “Rebel Siren” pages used unauthorized copies of Rebel Siren’s real profile picture and cover photo, and went so far as to mirror posts to confuse & trick people. The fake pages have only known trolls with fake profiles themselves “liking” it, except for some people that had been deceived.
Trolls with fake names such as “Randall Flagg” a Stephen King character(see end). Not only is it FAKE, it’s a copyright violation, yet “Randall Flagg” has been allowed to run free on facebook harassing activists, despite being reported multiple times: The CULT – Jim Jones’ disciples had nothing on these facebook trolls. Even more frustrating, the FAKE “Rebel Sirens” remained on facebook, while the legitimate Rebel Siren profile was indefinitely suspended; further meaning that the REAL page, Rebel Siren, was left vulnerable to troll attacks, such as by a TROLLillegally using the copyrighted Muppet character “Beaker“ (a “page” with 2 likes, not the official Muppet page), an OBVIOUS fake (been since deleted).
ALL troll attacks on the real Rebel Siren page including disparaging memes, insults, name calling, ridicule, and general harassment during the time of profile suspension at the date of this blog, had been cataloged to be used as further EVIDENCE against “fakebook” for allowing such shillidiocy, cyberstalking, and harassment to run unchecked.
Facebook seems to willingly allow FAKE troll profiles/pages to run amok, yet immediately suspends real profiles based solely on “name” regardless of the truth, and failing to take into account post & comment history.
It is highly irresponsible of facebook to enforce its “real name” policy, and suspend profiles with no investigation into the facts, as well as blatantly disregarding potential consequences of forcing people to use legal names, opening them up to identity theft, in-person harassment, and possibly bodily harm from unbalanced obsessive stalkers, and in some cases where domestic violence was a factor, stalking and abuse from ex husbands or boyfriends. It also makes facebook liable.
Troll attacks happened on Rebel Siren’s page during the time of suspension such as a troll using a fake name, “Beaker”. It was reported via screenshot and email to facebook in detail, yet they had refused to acknowledge it, while Rebel Siren’s profile continued to remain suspended, and every new Rebel Siren profile got suspended also. What gives?
Clearly, facebook violates its own “community standard” by allowing such things as a heartbreaking “snuff video” of kitten torture (highly disturbing video of two psychopathic deviates torturing an innocent kitten, dousing it with lighter fluid, setting it on fire, then murdering it, too heinous to include in this article), various other shameful animal abuse and inappropriate psychopathic content.
Facebook routinely allows FAKES(such as known disinformation shills) to run rampant, while suspending real people using other names. For example, in the news recently, the LGBT community recently received an apology by facebook recently for attempting to force them to use their “real names” after some homophobic hater, (probably using a fake name himself), reported them. The LGBT community didn’t just bend over and take it, they spoke up and started a petition at change.org collecting 35,000 signatures, giving rise to the apology from facebook’s Cox:
This begs the question, isn’t it blatant discrimination to allow some users to go ahead and use “other” names, while forcing the rest of us to submit legal identification and use “real names” despite the fact that we are known for our pen names, nicknames, maiden names, stage names, and business names? Even with all the recent controversy, discrimination, and overall unfairness of facebook’s so called “real name” policy and the public apologies to the LGBT community publicized in the news recently; Rebel Siren, author and advocate for humanity, remained disallowed to use a legitimate, proven PEN NAME on the profile.
Instead of further pursuing the matter with low level employees named, “Arnold” and “Barry” that were virtually unresponsive; only capable of generic responses, refusing to investigate and failing to honor several written requests to be routed to facebook’s legal department. “Fakebook’s” duplicitous actions are being exposed in this article with hopes it will raise awareness about the ongoing dissonance with facebook’s ever-changing user-unfriendly “policies” and generate a more positive outcome for everyone that’s forced to deal with thisutter absurdity. Since the initial date of this article, facebook’s legal department has been contacted and apprised of the situation, including being cc’d on all future correspondence regarding this serious issue of rampant cyberbulling of activists.
What motivates facebook to allow rampant harassment by obvious fake profiles/pages (whether it looks like a “real name” or not), yet take readily “suspend” those of us that actually care about life and the world we live in and speak up in hopes of making a difference? Obviously, there is money involved. Why would facebook admit to such blatant discrimination by publicly apologizing to the LGBT community that’s been all over the news agreeing to allow them to use their “stage names”, yet blatantly IGNORE everyone else, including those of us seeking to raise awareness about global issues that affects all life on this planet?
If facebook allows one group of people to use other names, (such as the LGBT community), then facebook must allow everyone to do so, otherwise it’s pure discrimination, unfair to all users, not to mention that their “real name” policy is proving to be an epic fail, and that is only ONE element to this complex issue, there is also an issue of SAFETY. Facebook is jeopardizing activist’s safety, as well as other people whose safety may be at risk if they use their “real names”. Is facebook “bought” by corporate interests, or holding to an inept policy, or BOTH?
Obviously, “names”, whether fake OR real, do not keep cyberbullying off of facebook. Why does facebook choose to perpetuate cyberbullying by honoring the reports of known trolls that target and relentlessly harass activists, yet ignore the reports and pleas of real people that are trying to make a difference? Is there justice in allowing cyberbullies with fake profiles & pages to run rampant, but honest people to get the boot simply based on the fact that they had been targeted & reported by cyberbullies? What is facebook’s policy about disclosing the reports and investigating those that do the reporting to see if they are hiding anything or on a revenge mission? Will it take legal action to get this out into the open?
Meanwhile, perhaps facebook should reevaluate its inefficient, generic “policies” and come up with a better way of identifying truly fake profiles that are actual cyberbullies, such as an investigatory overview of comment and posting history (which was requested in writing several times), rather than focusing solely on “names”. It is evident that examining someone’s ACTUAL behavior on facebook would be a much better gauge of WHO they are than simply what their “name” happens to be. Honestly, and quite ironically, using the pen name Rebel Siren, allows this author to be more professional and objective in posts & comments on facebook. If forced to use a given name, posts would be much more emotional and unrestrained, just as they were prior to using pen name only. Certainly seems like a backfire waiting to happen, eh facebook? For those of us with common sense and the ability for critical thinking, let’s examine the growing problem of rampant, widespread cyberbullies in more detail:
Technology’s progression is often equated with the advancement of human societies. Pivotal innovations, such as the Internet, have forever changed how people interact. Though these developments have allowed the human race to make great strides in many fields, they have also allowed forms of transgression to become more rampant and widespread. This is evident when considering how traditional bullying has evolved into an issue today known as cyberbullying. While bullying and cyberbullying are often similar in terms of form and technique they also have many differences. Unlike traditional bullying, cyberbullying allows the offender to mask his or her identity behind a computer. This anonymity makes it easier for the offender to strike blows against a victim without having to see the victim’s physical response. The distancing effect that technological devices have on today’s youth often leads them to say and do crueler things compared to what is typical in a traditional face-to-face bullying situation.

Let’s take a look at another negative situation facebook has brought upon itself due to its irresponsible, revolving door policies and ongoing privacy infringement.
Upon further investigation into facebook faux pas, we discover that “real names” can cause even bigger problems on “fakebook”. Facebook further contradicted its “real name” policy, violating its own “community standards”, by allowing the DEA to create a fake profile of a woman they busted to try to bait and lure her friends and family, without their knowledge. Hm, isn’t that “entrapment”? Isn’t entrapment illegal? Facebook, a lot of good your so called “real name” policy did in that circumstance. That was a real name alright, but still a FAKE, despite “proper id” which law enforcement officers, government officials, and even common crooks, can easily gain access to. Can you say, “backfire“?
As if those situations aren’t revealing enough, facebook recently disclosed its purchase of an Aerospace company, U.K.-based Ascenta for its globe-spanning Internet plans and use of solar powered DRONES. Drones? For the purpose of providing internet to remote parts of the globe at “low cost”? What if natives in remote regions have no way to prove their “real name”, facebook? Clearly, “fakebook” has its priorities straight. Why not just put that effort into something people in remote regions can really use, such as FOOD, SHELTER, and CLEAN WATER. Or, advocate for sustainable agriculture and clean skies? Or anything that benefits humanity? The future sustainability of the planet? Nourish underprivileged children? Technology to create a cleaner environment? ANYTHING other than another way to make more useless dollars, contributing to the demise of global society.
Take a look around at what our world is becoming and the rise in conditions such as autism, alzheimers, cancers, autoimmune disorders and various other ailments that can be directly attributed to the toxicity in our food system, water, medicine, vaccines, and AIR and for what? Corporate profit? It’s sad to see such destruction being perpetuated by those that have no idea what they’re really doing due to the fact that they themselves are adversely affected by vaccines, GMOs, herbicides, pesticides, and other toxins abundant in our atmosphere by corporations that put profit above our health and sustainability of the planet. We are conditioned from birth to accept the system. It makes me wonder if humanity is a thing of the past or a never-was? Our “technology” has far surpassed our wisdom and will surely be the demise of our species.
The following are only a few “fakebook” users on the growing list of known TROLL profiles/pages that facebook allows to run free, cyberstalk and harass activists, violating its own community standards and highly irresponsible “real name” policy, many of whom are still there despite multiple reports:
Eman Sugob, (“Name Bogus” spelled backwards) facebook id# 100007374608251
Bob Solo, facebook id#100003622144034
10/16/15 UPDATE – finally removed after months of contact with facebook’s legal department firstname.lastname@example.org – FAKE “Rebel Siren – Public Figure” facebook id#1530415123861880(to harass real author/activist Rebel Siren)
Update, finally got removed after SEVERAL MONTHS of emailing facebook’s legal department – FAKE “Rebel Siren– Exposing Corruption and Crimes Against Humanity” facebook id#559789960831840(shill page created to harass author/activist Rebel Siren by “mirroring” the REAL page)
Peter WiganPete Greenall, facebook id# 100008201523866
Madisondrugs Loon, (to harass activist Madisonstar Moon) facebook id# 256567904530799 (this fake page was literally up for YEARS before finally being removed)
Plus HUNDREDS MORE fake shill pages and profiles remain up harassing people.
Madisonstar Moon’s profile & page routinely gets attacked and banned, as well as specific content often gets removed for “violating facebook’s community standards” for no valid reason. It’s completely senseless to allow the cyberstalking disinformation trolls to run rampant and allow their hateful, antagonistic pages, posts, and comments, while removing activist’s profiles, pages that are clearly not “violations”. See video below for yet another example of “fakebook’s” blatant discrimination siding with cyberstalkers. Activists are being targeted, attacked, harassed, and bullied by trolls with obvious fake pages such as, “MadisondrugsLoon” (for example, above it is accusing well known activist, Russ Tanner of being what it is;a criminal against humanity).
This is the kind of thing we’re up against as activists every day that we dare to speak up and share information, to be victimized by rampant shill-idiocy plaguing our social media forums, running wild on “fakebook“, with facebook’s consent.
“MadisondrugsLoon” had been reported over and over by every activist that knew about it, yet continued to run freely harassing activists & cyberstalking the real Madisonstar Moon, before finally disappearing. Below, “Paid Shill“, speaks for itself and was on facebook also for YEARS before finally being removed, while activist’s profiles & pages continue to be violated and placed on suspension for a variety of bogus reasons. If you come up against troll profiles using fake names such as the one below, report them for using fake names and see how long it takes facebook to take appropriate action, if ever.
Disconnecting people from family, friends, and fellow activists, deleting all of the work we’ve done to raise awareness & share information on your forum, leaving our pages unattended without a profile to admin it, vulnerable to more troll attacks, only proves the point and makes activists stronger. But,you know what it makes facebook?Part of the problem.
