Angelina Jolie: Heroic Mastectomy Role Model or Mastotemanophiliac

July 29th, 2013

By Katherine Smith

Before her Mastectomy
After Mastectomy


Mastotemanophilia - from the Greek mastia [breast], tomein [to cut] and philein [to love] is a paraphilia in which individuals express a strong (sexual) desire for the amputation of a healthy breast or breasts.

Anyone care to guess why Angelina Jolie misrepresented her risk of getting breast cancer?

You can forget about Mike Adam’s (Natural News) conspiracy theory that Angelina Jolie is really a corporate sellout who corrals women into the for-profit cancer industry that claims ownership over the genetic code of all women.

Mike’s Mastectomy Conspiracy is unmitigated mutilation nonsense and his smoking gun is that Jolie's seemingly spontaneous announcement, "HER BRAVE CHOICE" and "This was the right thing to do," were part of a well-timed for-profit corporate P.R. campaign that has been planned for months intended to influence a U.S. Supreme Court decision on the viability of the BRCA1 patent.

If you can figure out a Supreme Court connection to a celebrity cutting off her boobs let me know.

Angelina told the NY Times she had genetic testing that indicated a high likelihood that she would develop breast cancer.

"My doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer, although the risk is different in the case of each woman. Only a fraction of breast cancers result from an inherited gene mutation. Those with a defect in BRCA1 have a 65 percent risk of getting it, on average."

When she is quoted as saying “Only a fraction of breast cancers result from an inherited gene mutation,” she knows that this number doesn't apply to the entire population: it's actually old data derived almost exclusively from families that were previously documented to have very high risks of breast cancer to begin with, and even then, it only applied to women who expressed the BRCA1 gene.

Kill for Peace - US and EU Sanctions Deny Medicine to the Critically Ill

January 14th, 2013

Michael Collins

United States and European Union sanctions against Iran prevent much needed medical care for the Iranian people. Those with cancer, for example, have lost the option of treatment through chemotherapy while hemophiliacs are at high risk for any surgery due to a denial of essential pharmaceuticals. There are 85,000 new cases of cancer every year in Iran. Those with cancer and the newly diagnosed will have to do without effective treatments. A large percentage of them will die sooner than anticipated as a result. (Image: Fergal of Calldagh)

The Iranian medical community is unable to get required medicines due to financial restrictions in the sanctions regime. The restrictions effectively blocks pharmaceutical purchases by Iranian medical facilities. No ticket, no laundry is the policy of big and little pharma throughout the world. As a result, right now -- as you read this -- innocent Iranians are dying, sentenced to death by the U.S.-E.U. sanctions.

Who on earth would initiate and sustain such a policy?

You guessed it. The Obama administration, the leaders of the NATO countries and other wannabe tough-guy nations are behind the comprehensive sanctions designed to get Iran to stop its nuclear program. Here is how tough the sanctions are. Former UN ambassador, the very right wing John Bolton, described the E.U. sanctions as "brutal."

Killer Capitalism - Greek crisis produces fatal medicine shortages

June 9th, 2012

By Michael Collins
Here is perfect example of crony capitalism. Greek leaders do a very bad deal in secret with the help of the geniuses on Wall Street. It turns out badly for he Greek people by creating an economic crisis. As he crisis worsens, predicted shortages of medicine and exponential price increases emerge. Patients with multiple sclerosis, cancer,diabetes and other critical diseases face drug shortages and out of control price increases.

"On Thursday, the [Greek] multiple sclerosis patients' association warned that if the problems persisted, sufferers could be 'led to their deaths'. Associations representing cancer, diabetes and kidney disease patients have also spoken of the gravity of the situation. 'Finding medicines,' said the MS association, 'has become a marathon for people with chronic illnesses.'" The Independent, June 9

What happens if multiple sclerosis is untreated?

Agrochemicals, energy plants and GMO crops killing Bathinda residents

August 11th, 2011

By Rady Ananda

Home to two coal power plants, a fertilizer plant, and a large oil refinery, the city of Bathinda in Punjab, India is making people sick.  Forty percent of the population (nearly 90,000 people) suffers from respiratory ailments. The area also suffers from a host of other diseases including cancer, at a rate triple that of other areas, which has been linked to agrochemicals.

Doctors are urging people to use medicinal inhalers, which is culturally stigmatized. Rather than demanding strict environmental controls, doctors have asked authorities to fund an education campaign to dispel the stigma associated with inhaler use.

Codex Alimentarius : Rated Rx

June 8th, 2011

By Chantal Boccaccio

If this were a horror movie, it would be a Holiday Blockbuster.

But it’s not a film, it’s your life. And if you want to see how it ends, it can be summed up in two words: Codex Alimentarius.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably one of the 3 Billion – that’s BILLION, with a “B” – people projected to die of curable diseases in the first few years of implementation. At the risk of spoiling the ending, the plot, so to speak, goes as follows:

Codex Alimentarius (Latin for “Food Code”), is a dark marriage between pharmaceutical and chemical industries and the WTO, conceived to exact complete and regimented control over all food products and nutrients worldwide. Codex is a complex, global, inter-governmental program, written by Big Pharma, policed by the UN, and consisting of 170 member nations, the United States among them.

And it will mandate every bite you take.

Would You Sleep In Your Microwave Oven?

June 8th, 2011

by Chantal Boccaccio

Imagine you’re living in your apartment for fifteen years, and one day the city comes knocking on your door with orders to put NINE Cellular Antennas and a GPS Satellite on your roof! That’s the nightmare facing the residents of 7100 Hillside Avenue in Hollywood.

On Wednesday, June 3rd, a hearing about the proposed 9-antennae Cell Tower was held at LA City Hall before the Zoning Administration. Residents within a 500 foot radius were invited by letter to the hearing, where they expected their concerns would be heard.

The residents provided Zoning Administrator Maya Zaitzevsky with testimony, articles and links to hundreds more articles, espousing the exhaustive list of dire health risks directly associated with residing near a Cell Tower.
