Pilot program provides shots to kids in Denver schools - The Denver Post

Subject: This is the end of the end. It has started Public Schools as health clinics (vaccine push)

This is in the Healthcare bill and as you see with the government, sometimes bills (like Obama’s Wired for Healthcare) just needs to be articulated. You don't even have to pass it and the roll out begins.

The Healthcare bill: It grants money to buy property, build buildings and take private money to match grant money...guess who that would be?

These PSHC (Public School Health Clinics) as named in the bill will be very set in stone...every school will have them...every child will get vaccinated...they may try to take away exemptions at some point which would then negate their problem of obtaining parental consent. If you don't vaccinate...with out exemptions...you have a choice...school or no school for you kids.

HPV now for boys, too. Flu shots twice a year with high levels of Thimerosal from 6 mos. through 19. All perfectly recorded using the pubic schools as the data collecting and vaccine distribution system. They are going for adults too and pets.

There seems to be a push to totally bypass what the State of Colorado has determined should be required for school. These kids are getting shots not required for school including HPV which was overwhelmingly rejected by the states in 2007

If this works in Denver, it will be spread.

US court rules against Monsanto's GMO sugarbeets, says USDA failed to evaluate the risks

By Carey Gillam

KANSAS CITY, Sept 22 (Reuters) - A federal U.S. court has ruled in favor of critics of Monsanto (MON.N) Co's genetically engineered sugar beets, saying the U.S. government failed to adequately evaluate environmental and economic risks associated with the crop.

The U.S. District Court for the northern district of California ruled that the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) violated federal law by failing to prepare an environmental impact statement before deregulating genetically altered sugar beets.

Monsanto developed the biotech beets to be resistant to Monsanto's glyphosate herbicide Roundup, and promotes the sugarbeets as "Roundup Ready."
The plaintiffs include the Center for Food Safety, Organic Seed Alliance, Sierra Club, and High Mowing Seeds. The groups filed the lawsuit in January 2008.
About 1.1 million U.S. acres were seeded this year to Roundup Ready sugar beets in the fourth year of commercialized production.

Critics say the Roundup Ready beets are dangerous for the environment because they promote the emergence of "superweeds" or weeds that cannot easily be killed because they also develop a tolerance to weedkiller. They also say that organic and conventional beet farmers are damaged because the genetically altered sugar beets are wind-pollinated and inevitably cross-pollinate related crops grown nearby.
The court found that USDA gave only "cursory" consideration to some of these concerns, failing to adequately consider the risks. The court has ordered the USDA to conduct a rigorous assessment of the environmental and economic impacts of the crop on farmers and the environment, and will evaluate other remedies in an October meeting of the parties.

In response to the court ruling, Monsanto defended its product. "The decision was based on procedure and had nothing to do with questioning the safety or efficacy of Roundup Ready sugar beets," said Monsanto spokesman Garrett Kasper.

But one of the attorneys representing the consumer and farmer groups who filed the lawsuit said the ruling spoke to the danger of the biotech crop. "Monsanto is trying to sweep this under the rug," said Paul Achitoff, a lawyer for the law firm Earthjustice. "The procedure they neglected to follow was to evaluate the impact of the product. The court found they needed to look at the environmental impacts of growing Monsanto's product and they haven't done it." (Reporting by Carey Gillam; Editing by David Gregorio)

Do not use Zicam nasal gel for sinus problems and colds – it injures the Olfactory nerve

“I want my friends to know what has happened to me in hopes that it will never happen to you or anybody you care about. About 10 days ago, I felt a cold coming on; so before I went to bed I used Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Gel. It's supposed to help you "get over your cold faster." Immediately after I sprayed it into each nostril I felt the most horrific burning sensation imaginable. It literally felt like I had sprayed pepper spray directly into my brain. It burned all the way to the top of my skull. My nasal passages swelled, my eyes watered - the burning lasted all night long into the next day.

After about a day, I realized I couldn't taste anything and I thought, "Wow - I must really have a bad cold." Then I noticed that I couldn't smell coffee brewing, couldn't smell my perfume when I put it on, couldn't smell the popcorn I burned, couldn't smell my favorite candle. I panicked and starting smelling everything that I could find that had really strong odors - ammonia, finger nail polish remover, bleach, etc. I couldn't smell ANYTHING! I started tasting everything that had really strong tastes such as HOT salsa, raw red onions, Doritos, coffee. I couldn't taste ANYTHING!

I went online, typed in "Zicam side effects" and up popped all sorts of web sites with people reporting the same thing I experienced. It seems that this past June, Zicam pulled the swabs for adults and children off the shelf but not the nasal gel.

My doctor said the Zicam had basically "FRIED" my Olfactory nerve and the results are most likely permanent. He said he had read about the side effects of Zicam and couldn't believe it is still on the shelf. It isn't FDA approved.”

Check it out on the link below.

Matrixx issued an update in January 2007 in which it reasserted the safety of its Zicam products. The company, Matrixx continues to believe that Zicam Cold Remedy intranasal gel does not cause loss of smell and that claims to the contrary are scientifically unfounded and misleading.

Because Zicam is labeled as a homeopathic remedy and is based on a naturally occurring mineral (zinc) that is generally recognized as safe, the product has not been regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA. Medical reports going as far back as 1938 have noted that high doses of zinc can harm the tissues involved in smelling, but whether Zicam users experience a higher-than-normal incidence of anosmia remains a subject of debate.

There are safe remedies for sinus problems such as Thera-zyme Nsl for a stuffy nose, Citricidal Nasal Spray as well as the inexpensive Neti Pot. I recommend Thera-zyme Opt for a runny nose. Both Opt and Nsl are food-based vitamin C formulas with enzymes and are available online.
