Amidst all the destructive activities taking place in our world today that deserve attention, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has decided instead to make it a personal mission to destroy the businesses and livelihoods of those trying to help people through natural medicine.
On Thursday, April 14, 2011, dozens of agents from the FDA, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conducted an unprovoked, full-scale raid on Hood River, Ore.-based Maxam Nutraceutics, a company that produces and sells nutritional supplements primarily for autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and Alzheimer’s disease.
Back in October 12, 2010, the FDA sent a warning letter to Jim Cole, Founder and CEO of Maxam, notifying him that several of his company’s products were not labeled in accordance with the US Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. The letter also stated that Maxam had fifteen days from the receipt of the letter to notify the FDA compliance officer of the specific steps it planned to take in order to correct the violations.
You can view a copy of the FDA warning letter here, complete with the name of the FDA compliance officer to whom Jim and his company were instructed to respond, and the FDA district director who sent the letter.
Oddly enough, the vast majority of the “unapproved labels” in question were not actually labels at all. They were merely customer testimonials about the products that had been accumulated over the years from satisfied customers, and posted online alongside product descriptions on Maxam’s website. Nevertheless, the FDA considered the testimonials to be marketing violations that automatically rendered the products as drugs.
According to Jim, his company immediately responded to the FDA letter by calling the compliance officer and telling her “it was [the company'http://consciouslifenews.com/">Conscious Life News]
I was having a bowl of miso and dulse soup the other night with my friend, Susan. We were talking about all of the other protocols that we, as West Coasters, were practicing to protect ourselves from any potential radiation toxicity that might incur from Fukushima. I am a long-time raw food vegan, so the new protocols haven’t really triggered any radical detoxification. Susan, on the other hand, has been eating a standard American diet. So, it suffices to say that the new protocols have sent her into a tailspin. She had never heard of a healing crisis, or Herxheimer Reaction — but she was having one!
After talking with Susan, it occurred to me that perhaps other prevention-oriented West Coasters were also experiencing Herxheimer Reactions — and had no idea what was happening to them. A Herxheimer Reaction is a detoxification reaction in the body. As the body detoxifies, it is not uncommon to experience flu-like symptoms including headache, joint and muscle pain, body aches, sore throat, general malaise, sweating, chills, nausea or other symptoms. This is a normal reaction to the toxins that are released when large numbers of parasites, fungus, viruses, bacteria or other pathogens are being effectively killed off and the body does not eliminate the toxins quickly enough. The important thing to note is that worsening symptoms do not indicate failure of the protocol in question; in fact, usually just the opposite. Although the experience may not make you feel particularly good, the Herxheimer Reaction is a sign that healing is taking place.
The healing crisis is the result of every body system, in concert, working to eliminate waste products through all elimination channels and set the stage for regeneration. The end result: old tissues are replaced with new. When any cleansing program causes a large scale die-off, a significant amount of toxins are released into the body. The more toxins present, the stronger the cleansing reaction. The current radioactivity protocols are custom-made detoxification programs. As well as protect against fugitive radiation, they chelate heavy metals, eliminate toxins and flush the body of other unnatural elements that have accumulated over years of living in a compromised environment.
Smart moves for negotiating a healing crisis include drinking plenty of fresh water, juices, and herbal teas to flush the body of toxins. Other ways to speed the detoxification along include saunas, hot-baths and massage. If the Herxheimer Reaction is especially strong, colonics might be a good idea. The idea is to get the toxins, which have been released by the protocols, out of the body. Faster is better. You don’t want to release toxins from the tissues and then have them still circulating in the body, looking for an exit. Create exits! The faster the toxins exit the body, the less intense the healing crisis, as the Herxheimer Reaction is caused from a die-off of toxins still trapped in the body.
So, while West Coasters are ramping up on radioactivity protocols in response to the Fukushima crisis, they are also, in effect, detoxifying. My friend, Susan, reported refreshed energy levels and a more optimistic outlook, in spite of her uncomfortable healing crisis. If others, like her, can just make it through the discomfort of the Herxheimer Reaction, they may experience a whole new level of health and well-being. Fukushima continues to be a disaster and a grave health risk for the whole world. If, however, it facilitates a move toward detoxification, then there is a small silver lining in an overall grim situation.

The mass radioactive contamination of our planet is now under way thanks to the astonishing actions taking place at the Fukushima nuclear facility in Japan. As of last night, TEPCO announced it is releasing 10,000 tons of radioactive water directly into the Pacific Ocean. That 2.4 million gallons of planetary poison being dumped directly into the ocean.
This water is being released because they have run out of places to keep it on land. It’s too deadly to transport anywhere else, and all the storage pools around Fukushima are already overflowing. So they’re dumping it into the ocean, then calling it “safe” because they claim the ocean will “disperse” all the radiation and make it harmless.
But because there’s more radioactive water being produced every day at Fukushima, this process of releasing radioactive water into the ocean could theoretically continue for years, easily making Fukushima the worst nuclear disaster in the history of our world.
Quick, fudge the numbers before anybody notices!
Fukushima, you see, is doing to the Pacific Ocean what BP and the Deepwater Horizon did to the Gulf of Mexico last summer. Except that in the case of Fukushima, that radiation doesn’t just disappear with the help of millions of gallons of toxic chemicals. Nope, that radiation sticks around for decades.
So what to do? If you’re the United States Environment Protection Agency, there’s only one option: Declare radiation to be safe!
Virtually all the numbers you’re seeing about the radioactivity coming out of Fukushima are based on iodine-131 which only has a half-life of 8 days, not the far more dangerous CESIUM-137 which has a half-life of 30 years. So while the mainstream media reports that “radiation levels are falling rapidly”… ~ Mike Adams
. . . from the 7.5 million times reading taken a few days ago, what they’re not telling you is that the cesium-137 radioactivity will take 30 years just to fall by 50 percent. It’s the great global cover-up in all this: What happens to all the radioactive cesium being dumped into the ocean right now? It doesn’t just burn itself out in a few months like iodine-131. This stuff sticks around for centuries. As part of the cover story, the FDA now says it will test “all imported food products coming from Japan”
This agency has no existing infrastructure under which it could test ALL the food being imported from Japan. The very idea is ludicrous. As this ABC News story reveals, the FDA says it’s “really stretched” just to inspect a mere two percent of imported food: http://abcnews.go.com/Health/radiat…
The FDA Likes Radiation!
Even if the FDA could magically test all the food being imported from Japan, what allowable level of radiation would the FDA claim was “safe” in those foods anyway? Remember, this is the agency that has long supported the mass irradiation of the U.S. food supply as a way to kill e.coli and salmonella.
For all we know, FDA bureaucrats equate radiation with safety and might actually declare radioactive seafood from Japan to be safer than non-radioactive food because, they would say, the radiation “kills salmonella.”
Why Eating Radioactive Food Is Far More Dangerous Than Nuclear Fallout
The other element in all this that’s hardly being reported in the press is that when you eat radioactive food, the threat to your health increases exponentially. That’s because internal radiation is far more deadly to your body than external radiation. It all comes down to the law of the inverse square of the distance between you and the radiation source. A speck of radioactive dust that’s one meter away from you, for example, is twice as dangerous as that same speck four meters away. But if you eat that radioactive speck (because it’s part of a fish you’re consuming, for example), then suddenly it’s inside your body.
It might only be a millimeter away from your internal tissues, meaning you’ve decreased the distance between you and the radiation source by one thousand times. Because if the law of the inverse square of the distance, you have now magnified the radiation intensity by one million times (because one million is the square of one thousand). So a speck of radiation that might have been a “low level” if it were floating around in the air around you can suddenly become fatal if you consume it. And that’s what people are now facing with Japan’s seafood. Yet everybody is being told that it’s all perfectly safe, no problem, no worried, don’t even think about it.
Where Does The Radiation Go In Your Body?
We’re all being lied to about the “safety” of radioactive food, you see. And there’s more to it than what has been discussed here, actually: If a fish takes in radioactive cesium and it gets distributed throughout the body of that fish in the way that potassium would normally get distributed (because cesium follows nearly the same biological pathways as potassium), then the radioactive cesium has become part of the fish flesh. When you eat that fish, your body breaks down the fish tissues, then reabsorbs the cesium into your own body, distributing the cesium into your own muscle tissues where potassium would normally go. You are what you eat, after all. And if you eat radioactive cesium, then you quickly become a walking radioactive dirty bomb from the inside.
If It’s Invisible, It Must Be Safe
They don’t tell you that on CNN, folks. I’m willing to bet their “info babe” news models don’t even have a clue about the laws of physics in the first place. So while they’re all telling you that eating irradiated seafood from Japan is perfectly safe, the truth is that it could very well be quite deadly if you’re eating fish that contain high levels of cesium. So you might wonder, then, are fish being detected with cesium in their tissues? You bet they are! You’ll find the details in these news stories: http://www.radioaustralia.net.au/co… and http://mdn.mainichi.jp/mdnnews/busi…The extremely high levels of radiation even have the local fishermen freaked out. “I can’t go out to fish because of the radiation,” one Japanese fisherman told ABC News (http://abcnews.go.com/Health/radiat…).
But don’t worry, we’re told. It’s all safe to eat. The FDA is in charge, after all. And remember what governments always say about radiation and chemicals: If it’s invisible, it MUST be safe!

Prison Planet editor Paul Joseph Watson sits in while Alex is away. Paul talks with Christopher Busby, a British scientist and activist known for his work on the health effects of ionizing radiation. Mike Adams, the Natural News Health Ranger, fills in for the second half of the show. Watson and Adams breakdown the ongoing nuclear crisis in Japan. Adams also interviews Kentucky Governor candidate, Phil Moffett, about his stance on the FDA.

Newly-released documents obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) reveal that the US Depart of Homeland Security has been working on plans to roll out a new wave of mobile surveillance technologies at train stations, stadiums and streets. These new technologies will track your eye movements, capture and record your facial dimensions for face-recognition processing, bathe you in X-rays to look under your clothes, and even image your naked body using whole-body infrared images that were banned from consumer video cameras because they allowed the camera owners to take “nude” videos of people at the beach.
Most importantly, many of these technologies are designed to be completely hidden, allowing the government to implement “covert inspection of moving subjects.” You could be walking down a hallway at a sports stadium, in other words, never knowing that you’re being bathed in X-rays from the Department of Homeland Security, whose operators are covertly looking under your clothes to see if you’re carrying any weapons.

After we released the article, DNA “Genetic Patdown” Introduced to Airports by DHS, we quickly received a TSA comment on our site from Blogger Bob, the web name for a Program Analyst with the Office of Strategic Communications and Public Affairs. Here are his exact words:
Good morning. TSA is not testing and has no plans to use any technology capable of testing DNA. You can read our blog post on this subject here: –> http://blog.tsa.gov/2011/02/tsa-testing-dna-no-way.html
Thanks, Blogger Bob — TSA Blog Team
DHS S&T expects to receive a prototype DNA analyzer device this summer to conduct a preliminary evaluation of whether this kind of technology could be considered for future use. At this time, there are no DHS customers, nor is there a timeline for deployment, for this kind of technology – this is a simply a preliminary test of how the technology performs.
Again, TSA is not testing and has no plans to use any technology capable of testing DNA.
So can we believe Blogger Bob and the TSA?
By now, the entire alternative news media has examined this topic and concluded that despite the fact that there may be no announced date of arrival for this technology in airports, if it is being worked on by DHS it is a sure bet to be employed by the TSA once it is concluded to be effective.
Mike Adams sounded the alarm that DNA harvesting is sure to arrive with the new scanner, and provided additional background on similar programs already in effect. Paul Joseph Watson highlighted the most recent in a long string of TSA lies and abuses, as it was revealed that they herded people into a grope-down area after disembarking a train in Savannah, then later lied by saying that people went voluntarily. And, today, Judge Napolitano weighed in for FOX News on his interpretation of what the TSA has done already to violate our rights, and what we can expect from any government initiative that involves more surveillance and control:
So far, based on TSA conduct that has run the gamut from creepy behavior to sexual assault, there is absolutely no reason to trust them, or their representatives. If they are given the technology being worked on by DHS in partnership with NetBio to harvest DNA in real time, it’s a safe bet to say that their hands will be firmly placed in our jeans — and our genes.
