Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl.  What parent doesn’t have at least one of these pain relievers in the house if they’ve got kids?  It’s time for more Spring cleaning, and that includes the medicine cabinet.  

More than 40 over-the-counter infant’s and children’s liquid medications are being recalled by McNeil Consumer Healthcare, based in Fort Washington, PA.  The recall involves 43 various children’s versions of  Tylenol, Motrin,  Zyrtec and Benadryl.

The list of recalled products is found on the McNeil website,  http://www.mcneilproductrecall.com/page.jhtml?id=/include/mpr_ndc_finder.inc  where they say: 

McNeil Consumer Healthcare is initiating this voluntary recall because some of these products may not meet required quality standards. This recall is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse medical events.

However, as a precautionary measure, parents and caregivers should not administer these products to their children.

They don’t meet quality standards? 

Tylenol, Motrin,  Zyrtec and Benadryl products met Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil Consumer Heathcare division quality standards just fine until the Food and Drug Administration showed up.  Had the FDA not done a routine  inspection in April, no one would be the wiser that there was a problem in the first place.  Was it a surprise visit?

The FDA said it was reviewing procedures at McNeil, which appears to be the sole source of the problems. “We are following through with the facility to make certain that everything has been checked,” said FDA spokeswoman Elaine Gansz Bobo.

According to McNeil and the FDA, some of the products recalled may have a higher concentration of active ingredient than is specified on the bottle. Others may contain particles, while still others may contain inactive ingredients that do not meet internal testing requirements.  Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/lifestyle/health/2010/05/01/2010-05-01_fda_investigating_recall_of_childrens_medicine_including_tylenol_motrin_zyrtec_b.html#ixzz0msMXhTqH

Higher Concentrations? 

Particles?   What kind of particle exactly?  Particles of feces perhaps?  I call bullshit on Johnson and Johnson, McNeil, and maybe the FDA too.  Where were there own internal quality assurance people to ensure products standards? We are not talking about one product in dispute, but 43 different products that have different problems. 

The WSJ wrote that consumer complaints about certain over-the-counter children’s medications spurred the investigation that led to the recall.

It’s the latest in a spate of recall woes for J&J; in November it pulled some kinds of Tylenol Arthritis due to their moldy odor, then added more lots and products to the recall over the next few months.   As the WSJ notes, this latest recall signifies “another dent in J&J’s reputation as a model of corporate responsiveness.” The company’s handling of Tylenol poisonings in 1982 made it the subject of case studies in effective crisis management, but the recent recalls are fraying that reputation. http://blogs.wsj.com/health/2010/05/03/recall-roundup-jj-pulling-childrens-tylenol-motrin-other-meds/

There are plenty of third world countries with pharmaceutical production standards that fall far short of our standards.  Johnson and Johnson, the world leader in pharmaceuticals, medical goods and consumer products is an American company. The manufacturing plant in question is on American soil, with presumably American citizens working there.  Shame, shame for not enforcing standards, especially for children’s products and shame on the FDA as well.  Why did it take two weeks to notify the public that more than 40 children’s drugs were contaminated with yet to be named, “particles.”

Marc Boston, a McNeil spokesman, would not discuss the deficiencies cited by the FDA or say when the manufacturing facility was shut down. The company also declined to disclose the amount of products affected by the recall.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/05/01/AR2010050103051.html  Since when did FDA reports become sealed? It may be an ongoing investigation but I bet no one discloses anything more except when they announce that Tylenol is back in production,

The FDA regulates approximately 25 cents of every dollar spent annually by American consumers. The FDA is responsible for regulating products to ensure the safety of foods, drugs, biological products, medical devices, cosmetics, radiation-emitting devices, and more.  FDA’s Special Agents frequently investigate criminal wrongdoing by large companies. If these investigations lead to prosecution, the guilty officers and employees often receive federal prison sentences, while the company can expect to receive multimillion-dollar fines and restitution payments.  http://www.fda.gov/default.htm

Is the FDA’s Office of Criminal Investigations (OCI) looking into criminal activity?  What department of government investigates malfeasance of the FDA when it doesn’t do its job? For at least two weeks, these over the counter medicines were being used and sold, and shipped.  Did McNeil willfully ship known adulterated goods in interstate commerce? Did the FDA allow them xtra time to get there act together before notifying the public? 

To produce 43 different drugs at one facility, even if they operated at full steam means that there was a problem for a very long time.  When was the last FDA inspection?

“A $1.8 million 2006 Institute of Medicine report on pharmaceutical regulation in the U.S. found major deficiencies in the current FDA system for ensuring the safety of drugs on the American market. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_and_Drug_Administration ”  Four years after the study, we are in the same state of affairs. 

WAPO goes on to write,

This is at least the third major recall of Tylenol products by McNeil since 2008.

In January, McNeil recalled 49 types of Tylenol products made for adults and two Tylenol products made for children after consumers complained of a mold-like odor and of temporary and minor nausea, stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhea. The company determined that some of the medicines had been contaminated by trace amounts of a chemical that is sometimes present on shipping and storage material.

In 2008, McNeil recalled 21 types of children’s and infants’ Tylenol liquid products, saying that although the products met internal standards, an unused portion of one inactive ingredient did not meet all quality standards.

“The company is conducting a comprehensive quality assessment across its manufacturing operations and has identified corrective actions that will be implemented before new manufacturing is initiated at the plant where the recalled products were made.” http://www.mcneilproductrecall.com/page.jhtml?id=/include/new_recall.inc.  According to Wiki, along with their Fort Washington plant, McNeil also has plants in Lancaster, PA and Las Piedras, Puerto Rico.

In addition, the FDA said some drums used to transport raw materials to the Fort Washington facility were contaminated with a bacteria identified as B. cepacia.  http://money.cnn.com/2010/05/14/news/companies/tylenol_recall_plant_conditions/

Ring, ring.  ” Hi, this is Kaiser Permanente, the largest managed care organization in the United States and we’re conducting a study.  We were just wondering if those anti-depressant medications, antibiotics, and or cardiovascular medications you might have taken while you were pregnant gave your child birth defects or caused any perinatal problems?”  

A new research program called the Medication Exposure in Pregnancy Risk Evaluation Program (MEPREP) will fund research to study the effects of prescription medications used during pregnancy. The program is a collaboration among the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and researchers at the HMO Research Network Center for Education and Research in Therapeutics (CERT), Kaiser Permanente’s multiple research centers and Vanderbilt University. 

Collectively, the 11 participating sites have health care information for about 1 million births over the past seven years (2001-2007). Many of the mothers associated with these births likely used medication during their pregnancies and now, with the program in place, the FDA and participating researchers have a systematic and timely way of retrieving information from this network. http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm195934.htm

Did any pregnant mom systematically give permission to have their data used in this study?  Was there “informed consent,” that prescription data could be used in future studies?  We realize this is probably just an aggregate of data from various clinics, but everyone of those patients has a name and now are being used by a group of researchers to evaluate perscriptions drugs taken while pregnant.  “In 2007, Kaiser it completed the four-year implementation of the Kaiser Permanenteprescriptions HealthConnect technology system, which standardizes technology across all locations.”  http://www.wetfeet.com/Employers/Kaiser-Permanente.aspx What perfect timing!

Will the study look at race, age, and socio-economic factors as well?  How much do you think they know about these women?  About the children?

 

Smoking, drinking, and drug abuse are on the list as no no’s, but why is it the FDA now only taking action?  Reading the small print on most medications, including the H1N1 Swine Flu vaccines patient inserts, “product may not be safe for use during pregnancy, benefits outweighing risks, etc.” 

Why is it that the FDA is procuring this study as opposed to the pharmaceutical manufacturers themselves?  Oh, that’s right- many are already released from any liability from injury -as is the case with the H1N1 vaccines.  We have doubts that the outcome of this study will gain as much information as the government’s coordinated data effort which failed to reveal potential terrorists based on the events of 9-11, and as recently as on Christmas Day. 

 

The stimulus package, officially the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, includes $8.2 billion in “extramural” NIH funding to help stimulate the U.S. economy by supporting scientific research.  Kaiser Permanente has won more than $54 million in federal stimulus funding to conduct research on many public and clinical health areas, including $25 million for genetic research in Northern California. http://sanfrancisco.bizjournals.com/sanfrancisco/stories/2009/10/12/daily1.html 

Taking a conspiracy twist-

Financially influenced by Rockefeller’s leading petrochemical– pharmaceutical institutions, history shows these powerful “population planners” consistently working to manage global eugenics—the science of racial hygiene and “ethnic cleansing.”  Desperately seeking ways to control “excess populations,” how do you suppose they might magically disappear half of us now targeted for elimination?

Before your imagination runs wild considering my view of “Vaccine Magic,” consider Kaiser’s history with the Rockefeller family cooperatively pioneering “managed care” in America along with the Kaiser Institute for Eugenics, Anthropology, and Human Heredity in pre-Nazi Germany.  In essence, these contemporary powers spearheaded Hitler’s racial hygiene program, its genetic experiments for unnatural selection, and propaganda methods in advancing their “master race.” http://www.awakentothetruth.com/vaccine_magic_conspiracy.htm

“The Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology, Human Heredity, and Eugenics was founded in 1927. The Rockefeller Foundation supported both the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Psychiatry and the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology, Human Heredity and Eugenics. The Rockefeller Foundation partially funded the actual building of the Institute and helped keep the Institute afloat during the Depression. In its early years, and during the Nazi era, it was strongly associated with theories of Nazi eugenics and racial hygiene advocated by its leading theorists Fritz Lenz and Eugen Fischer, and by its director Otmar von Verschuer. Under Fischer, the sterilisation of so-called Rhineland Bastards was undertaken. During World War II, the Institute regularly received human body parts, including eyes and skulls, from Dr. Josef Mengele at Auschwitz to use in studies intended to prove Nazi racial theories and justify race-related social polices.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiser_Wilhelm_Institute_of_Anthropology,_Human_Heredity,_and_Eugenics

George Halvorson, the chief executive of one of the nation’s most respected health care systems, Kaiser Permanente, says he is hopeful that all the sausage-making in Washington will succeed in squeezing out a law….” lawmakers should support efforts to reward improvements in care for a handful of chronic conditions like asthma and heart failure, which affect millions of people and are some of the highest contributors to the nation’s health care bill. Tracking the care of those patients would be a good start, he said. “You don’t have to fix a lot of things.” http://prescriptions.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/09/22/kaiser-permanentes-chief-optimistic-about-health-overhaul-effort/

A handful of chronic conditions, eh?  Is being pregnant considered chronic.  Maybe for the Digger’s family!  Oh wait, how do drug companies make money if a patient doesn’t take them?  Could the underlying reason for this study really be linked back to The Kaiser Institute for Eugenics, Anthropology, and Human Heredity?

Could there be a link to other well known institutions? In 1904, the Carnegie Institution established a laboratory complex at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island that stockpiled millions of index cards on ordinary Americans, as researchers carefully plotted the removal of families, bloodlines and whole peoples.  Read more: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2003/11/09/ING9C2QSKB1.DTL#ixzz0bfTKdKOR

 tamiflu expired

Un-freaking believable.

I don’t drink milk past its expiration date and I don’t eat rotten food, but something smells fishy at the Food and Drug Administration.

To help combat the H1N1 flu, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is releasing 300,000 doses of the children’s antiviral drug liquid Tamiflu to the states that need it. States will begin receiving those doses next week, Schuchat said.  Some of these doses of liquid Tamiflu have an expired expiration date, Schuchat said. “But we want people to know that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has extended the expiration date of those courses after careful testing,” she explained.http://health.usnews.com/articles/health/healthday/2009/10/01/28-pregnant-women-have-died-from-swine-flu-cdc.html

The FDA claims that the expired lots of Tamiflu for Oral Suspension are part of the Strategic National Stockpile of drugs for use in public health emergencies like the H1N1 Pandemic. The Tamiflu lots in question have been tested through the federal government’s Shelf-Life Extension Program, (SLEP) said the FDA.

What the heck else has expired in the National Stockpile?  Is there any gold in Fort Knox?  Is there any oil in the reserves?

Is the government so desperate that it would release expired medicine into the population? 

There is also inconsistent dosing instructions blamed for confusion on dosing Tamiflu for children. 

“The problem is that the dosing instructions on the Tamiflu labeling does not always coincide with the measurement markings on the plastic syringe included with the drug to deliver the liquid medication, the officials said. For example, Tamiflu Oral Suspension tells users to give children three-fourths of a teaspoon of the medicine twice a day, but the syringe provided is marked in milligrams (not teaspoons), the scientists said. “The authors cite a case that they say is probably happening all over the United States.”

“It’s an egregious error that there is a conflict in the prescription labeling instructions and the dosage device that comes in the exact same box.

 http://www.healthday.com/Article.asp?AID=631327 

 An egregious error?  Undoubtedly, too much Tamiflu can cause side effects too little renders it useless.  While the government has given Swine Flu Vaccine Manufacturers immunity, I doubt Tamiflu is included under that umbrella.  And what have they done about it to correct it?

300,000 expired doses of Tamiflu are being distributed with the wrong dosing instructions!  Parents administer this product, traditionally not doctors. How many milligrams in a teaspoon? 

Where is the due diligence? 

As far back as June 2009, The Straits newspaper reported Singapore’s Ministry of Health has sent expired Tamiflu supplies to the general practitioner’s in Singapore.  Tamiflu, which comes in boxes of 10 pills each, is the anti-viral drug for the H1N1 flu. According to the report and to my own sources as well, these Tamiflu meds have expiry dates of 2007, and was manufactured in 2003. MOH has added a sticker that says that these meds can be used beyond their shelf life – to 2010 http://www.techgoondu.com/2009/06/25/doctors-given-expired-tamiflu-in-singapore/

‘Tamiflu is not without its side effects…so when that happens we won’t know if it’s because the drugs are expired or because of the side effects,’ he said. (from ST)  These pills sat on a shelf in Singapore for SIX YEARS, TWO YEARS after they expired.  WHY keep them unless you think you might need them?

Got to love that transparency thing!

Monkey-Business-305

After 30 years of research, HIV-1 has no vaccine.  Barely 4 months into the A/H1N1 pandemic we are about to have a vaccine available.

A nine-year study of chimps in their natural habitat found that the monkey version of HIV; the simian immunodeficiency virus or SIV- was thought to not sicken and kill chimps in the wild, but new research published in this week’s Nature shows otherwise.

Chimps and humans probably caught these viruses in the same way — by eating infected monkeys, says another study author, Beatrice Hahn of the University of Alabama. And they probably spread the virus the same way, too — through sexual activity, she says. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=106904155

Nine years is a long time to study these chimps to discover that, “”The last thing these chimps need is another source of mortality.”

AIDS like Swine Flu is a pandemic.   In 2007, it was estimated that 33.2 million people lived with the disease worldwide, and that AIDS had killed an estimated 2.1 million people, including 330,000 children. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AIDS  By comparison, the CDC reported as of  Friday that there have been 43,771 confirmed cases of H1N1 infection and 302 deaths in the United States alone.

AIDS can not be spread by casual contact like the Swine Flu.  The pork industry continues to assure us eating pork is fine although numerous countries have culled pigs.  Eating monkeys is bad for chimps and humans. 

For years researchers have sought a vaccine to prevent everything from AIDS to the common cold, all to no avail.  Yet we are expected to believe than in barely 6 months time, scientists are working around the clock for the right mixture of viruses to begin mass inoculations to prevent Swine Flu? 

Yep.

The “U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced it has issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for a another diagnostic test for the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus.”

The EUA for the Focus Diagnostics Influenza H1N1 (2009) Real-Time Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) diagnostic test is the third diagnostic test authorized under an EUA by the FDA since the public health emergency involving the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus was declared on April 26, 2009. http://7thspace.com/headlines/315407/us_food_and_drug_administration_announced_it_has_issued_an_emergency_use_authorization_eua_for_a_another_diagnostic_test_for_the_2009_h1n1_influenza_virus.html

The Focus Diagnostics test is an unapproved device whose use is authorized by the EUA.   Swine Flu Vaccines for all intents and purpose will fall into the same category of emergency use with no liability issues to the manufacturer of the vaccine or the governments that might order a mass vaccination campaign.  

An analysis by NPR’s Dollar Politics team finds that America’s biggest drug makers spent $40 million lobbying Congress over the last three months.http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2009/07/what_do_big_pharmas_deep_pocke.html?ft=1&f=103537970

One of the most powerful players in health care is a group called the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, or PhRMA. It represents just 32 brand-name drug companies, but it has so much influence that when Congress passes a bill, PhRMA almost always gets its way. One big reason why: PhRMA and its members have spent millions of dollars lobbying Congress as lawmakers work to overhaul health care.http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=106899074

The world is accelerating support for mass inoculations with various pharmaceutical companies manufacturing and testing a vaccine already in human trials.  The impact for viral shedding is unknown and even the WHO heads are warning of the of danger. Thousands of Americans are currently being recruited for swine flu vaccine testing at several research centers across the country. 

“Many European governments say that they will fast-track the testing of a new swine flu vaccine in an attempt to vaccinate people before winter, although some experts say they are concerned about risking safety and giving proper vaccine doses. The European Medicines Agency is accelerating the approval process for the swine flu vaccine. Countries like Britain, Greece, France and Sweden all say that they will start using the vaccine once it is given approval, which could happen within weeks. http://www.redorbit.com/news/health/1726759/swine_flu_vaccinations_to_be_expedited_in_europe/ 

Kind of like being a human guinea pig- the article says, “Although it is unlikely that the vaccine will endanger anyone, experts say that cannot be determined until it is used in large numbers of people….The WHO said that the swine flu viruses are not producing enough key vaccine ingredients, which might limit how much vaccine is available. 

Its laboratory network is now working to produce a new set of viruses that it hopes will work better.”

Just what the world needs, a new set of viruses.  Conspiracy theorists would argue the OPV AIDS connection that AIDS was accidentally or intentionally started in the 1950’s in the Congo by Hilary Koprowski researching the polio vaccine.  Conspiracy theorists also argue that Baxter Pharmaceutical may have unleashed the Swine Flu virus. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/05/05/baxter-pharmaceutical-plant-in-mexico-ground-zero-for-flu-outbreak/

Smallpox. What’s important to notice is that smallpox vaccination in the U.S. persisted another 30 years after the disease was at an incidence of practically zero. Again, the only source of death from smallpox in the U.S. for 30 years was from the vaccine itself. (Mendelsohn, p 232, World Book, 1994) [24, 25]  http://www.cyberclass.net/smallpoxvaccine.htm

Just a lot of monkey business.

Son of a biatch what the frig is with the new cigarettes?  The gosh dang things keep dropping ashes everywhere.  Take a puff and the ashes fall.  What the frig chemical is in there that makes them drop off like the flea of a camel’s ass?  What other chemicals are in my smokes?  Why do they burn out when I do not suck?

Jan. 1 required all cigarettes to be fire safety cigarettes or FSG’s. ”These cigarettes, often referred to as low-ignition, cause the cigarette to extinguish on its own if not consistently inhaled-as if that is healthy. “Cigarettes are made from the same blend of tobacco, thus the only difference to the consumer is they need to puff it more often” http://www.mysuburbanlife.com/westmont/homepage/x254745765, Can you spell b u l l s h i t?

Reacting quickly, Cheerios- the best-selling cereal in the world, is taking advantage of the Obama administration’ s admonishment.  General Mills will be issuing a new cereal to be named Obama O’s, of course -in specially marked boxes.  In compliance with the FDA,  OBama O’s will have absolutely no health claims.  

Obama O’s cereal will be made with Stevia.   In marketing the new sugar, this new sweetener is derived from the leaf of an herb called Stevia.  Consumer demand for so called natural products continues to grow, even in this mind boggling deficit and season of bailouts.  The sugar alternative is also known as Truvia and PureVia.

Cheerios and OBama O’s couldn’t have bought the kind of advertising and commentary it is receiving after the FDA sent a letter to General Mills Inc.  The letter scolded the company for violations and gave it 15 days to change the claims that the iconic ‘Os’ may lower cholesterol and help to treat heart disease.

With Obama slipping a bit in the polls, his advisor’s felt this the right time to allow the release of OBama O’s to the nation.  The O’s in the New OBama O’s cereal will be dyed red, white and blue.  The dye will be similar to the renewable, vegetable-based inks that was used for coloring easter eggs on the White House Lawn.  Those toasted O’ s will remain their crunchy texture unless the milk come from injected rBGH- growth hormone cows. The FDA fast tracked its approval at the President’s request. 

Plans are in the works for OBama O’s to correspond to the ad campaign for the Olympic Rings. ““The Obama White House is playing an unprecedented role in the bid to bring the 2016 Summer Olympics to Chicago, with top adviser Valerie Jarrett spearheading an effort that draws on the international symbolism of his presidency,” Politico writes, adding that “the emerging effort by the White House is unusually pointed in its attempt to wrap the campaign around the president and his appealing image abroad.”

The Original design featured was during Presidential campaign.  In keeping with his Barack Star image, the boxes will now feature Michelle, the children, the dog and special guest  Bill Ayers, eating breakfast in The White House.  Ayers was invited in honor of the release of his latest book Race Course Against White Supremacy scheduled for release on Amazon.  http://www.amazon.com/Race-Course-Against-White-Supremacy/dp/088378291X/ref=cm_sw_em_r_dp_title_featured?ie=UTF8&tag=tellafriend-20 

While no one has ever seen President Obama’s birth certificate or medical records, by all accounts he appears fit enough to bow down to kings and most certainly presentable as setting a fine example of the American judicial and political system.   General Mills approached President Obama to lend his endorsement in lieu of a court injunction and or product seizure.  Obama O’s will be served at all state events. 
 
Obama previously said, “Why can’t I just eat my waffle?” –after being asked a foreign policy question by a reporter while visiting a diner in Pennsylvania.  Press Secretary Gibbs today, noted that in keeping with a great American Tradition, food products today aren’t as  healthy as its packaging leads shoppers to believe.

This is the change you can believe in.  Hope in every box?  Don’t choke on it. Satire of course.  photo props to http://www.thedieline.com/blog/2008/10/capn-mccains-ob.html

cheeriosWhose feathers got ruffled enough to think Cheerios is a drug?  The egg industry?  The pork industry?  The pharmaceutical industry?  The FDA?

Promoting Cheerios as a drug that can lower cholesterol is going too far says the FDA.   “Based on claims made on your product’s label, we have determined that your Cheerios Toasted Whole Grain Oat Cereal is promoted for conditions that cause it to be a drug because the product is intended for use in the prevention, mitigation, and treatment of disease.” The agency takes special issue with these claims:  “you can Lower Your Cholesterol 4% in 6 weeks.” 

What a bunch of crapola.  An apple a day helps keep the doctor away, carrots are good for your eyes, lycopine in tomatoes reduces the risk of cancer, coffee is a diuretic, splenda food products cause diarrhea, etc.  A lot of food has heath benefits and warnings, but the Obama FDA Administration has gone after General Mills.

Avoiding bacon and eggs for breakfast everyday, and substituting Cheerios or any other reasonably good for you cereal couldn’t hurt in reducing cholesterol either.  The current box on my shelf has the disclaimer that says, ” MAY reduce the risk of heart attack.” The box also features an ad campaign Cheerios Circle of Helping Hearts, donating  $1 toward cholesterol screening for women in need.  www.cheerioshlepinghearts.com .  Considering Heart disease is the #1 cause of death among women, I’d say it a rather noble cause.

From the Harvard School of Health, study after study shows “Soluble fiber helps lower cholesterol. Insoluble fiber helps move waste through the digestive tract. Fiber may also kindle the body’s natural anticoagulants and so help prevent the formation of small blood clots that can trigger heart attacks or strokes.” http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/what-should-you-eat/health-gains-from-whole-grains/index.html.

Why did the FDA cross the road to go after one of America’s best loved breakfast food?   Mounting pressure from the egg and pork industry due to recent viral contaminations has everyone concerned.  The pork industry, already strained from recent outbreaks of the H1N1 flu virus, which is politically incorrect to call the Mexican Swine Flu Virus, prefers you eat bacon or sausage breakfast.

The Incredible Edible Egg.  Despite working hard to convince the world that Chinese food is safe, recently Hong Kong found traces of melamine in some eggs imported from China -“Select Fresh Brown Eggs” were 88% higher than the safety threshold allowed for the chemical.  China and the US are the leaders in egg production.  The egg industry hardly wants to hear about egg substitutes or eating tofu instead.  Neither industry want to hear about vegetarians!  http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2009/05/chickens-obama-white-house-may.html notes May 4, “International Respect for Chickens Day. In fact, this entire month is International Respect for Chickens Month, designed to celebrate those feathered fowl and highlight the political import of chickens in our world and also how tasty they are” . http://www.upc-online.org/respect/

A huge benefit from the Egg Industry lies in the production of vaccines.  Vaccines like the one’s the CDC Mandates for Children.  Obama is suggesting this fall all Americans receive three flu vaccines- one for the seasonal flu and two for the Swine Flu.    Mary Tacco’s site reiterates some of the vaccine concerns referencing  Dr. John Martin, former FDA administrator  ” These viruses fail to be recognized by the immune system and lead to neuropsychiatric illness including but not limited to autism.   He believes that the autism epidemic is due to an infectious component and not just thimerosal. (Much like the MMR infection – autism connection.) Also he states that our FDA and our government’s own vaccine studies found the cytomegalovirus DNA, which is from the African green monkeys (simian monkey virus) in the polio vaccination given to all Americans prior to 1992.  Instead of informing the public and taking responsibility for this, they covered it up.  Many doctors believe that the Aids epidemic is the product of these and other vaccines. ”  http://www.marytocco.com/vaccinefacts.htm

Is the FDA’s attack on Cheerios motivated by political donations?  Lobbying matters, don’t kid yourself. 2008 reports from www.opensecrets.com

Total For Food Processing & Sales: $6,700,516— Subtotal for Parent General Mills: $769,300—  Total For Crop Production & Basic Processing: $5,265,275— Subtotal for Parent Food Marketing Institute: $6,248,130— Subtotal for Parent Smithfield Foods: $350,000— Total For Poultry & Eggs: $841,342— The United Egg Producers $80,000— Subtotal for Parent National Chicken Council: $120,000.

The numbers pale in comparison to the Pharmaceuticals/Health Products lobby efforts pending, $235,315,408,  the subtotal for Parent Pharmaceutical Rsrch & Mfrs of America: $20,220,000.  Frig that knowledge is power- money talks.  The money trail to who has the power over what you eat must certainly be influenced by the FDA who’s member have ties primarily to the pharmaceutical industry- not the agricultural, egg, pork, dairy, chicken industries.  “Recent press reports revealed extensive evidence of serious wrongdoing by Dr. Andrew von Eschenbach, Dr. Frank M. Torti, top FDA attorneys, center and office directors, and many others in prominent positions of authority at FDA. As a result, Dr. Frank M. Torti, acting commissioner and the FDA’s first chief scientist, abruptly left the Agency,” writes http://www.theepochtimes.com/n2/content/view/16742/

The FDA regulates products that represent about 25 percent of every consumer dollar spent. During the Bush administration, the agency was widely criticized for making decisions based on politics, not science.  NPR is reporting, “A Senate committee has approved President Obama’s nomination of Dr. Margaret Hamburg to be the next commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration. The full Senate vote is expected.  http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=104107440 

Lord know how much was spend on the propaganda of animal rights groups concerned with how chickens, pigs, cows and other animals are treated. “Recombinant bovine growth hormone, or rBGH, is injected into dairy cows to artificially increase their milk production. The hormone has not been properly tested for safety. Milk labeled rBGH-free is produced by dairy cows that never received injections of this hormone.”Milk lobbyists pointed out that the Food and Drug Administration considers the artificial hormone to be safe (although many scientists believe it may cause cancer). Oh no- I add milk to my cheerios.  A double drug whammy for sure.

I don’t know where General Mills gets the grain to make Cheerios, but I’d  bet that it is sprayed with some sort of pesticide.  There are health and safety risks to producing any food product.  Just ask the peanut industry and tomato growers with salmonella outbreaks.  Animals get antibiotics, and all sorts of injections to make them grow, increase production, alter immune systems – the same as humans, eh?

If a spread of the Avian Influenza (AI) virus cannot be stopped and the H1N1 flu mutates or becomes Pandemic 6; you can bet your sweet petuti consumers are going to refrain from eating poultry, meat and eggs- and maybe even beef, no matter what the FDA, CDC and WHO tell you. 

To think that the FDA has nothing else to worry about than Cheerios being a drug, only reinforces dereliction from The Obama Administration.  How many illegal drugs come into this country everyday?  Could we focus on that?

I wonder if mom’s of boys who use cheerios for kids to aim at during potty training are worried about the potential hazards? Better switch to Lucky charms–lol
